LIONS LAUNCH 'CHRISTIE V' APPEAL YEPPOON Lions Club has launched the Christie V Appeal with $1000 so that the Capricorn Coast can show its regard for the Coucom family. • Appeal co-ordinator Don Knowles said late Wednesday the club was organising an Appeal Day which would be held at Yeppoon Showground on Saturday, December 10. Donations to the Christie V Appeal can be handed to any Lions Club member, who will issue a receipt, or donations can be posted to club at P.O. Box 203, Yeppoon, 4703. •

Mr Knowles said the recent Christie V sinking, which cost the lives of Cedric and Bruce Coucom, had highlighted the degree of respect in the community for the family. "The tragedy brought home to people how helpless they feel in the face of great loss," he said. "Lions have been approached by many people to organise some way of showing the family it is not alone." The December 10 Appeal Day at the showground starts at 1pm and continues until 1 1pm. The day has been planned as a picnic event for the whole family with bands, singers,

raffles, barbecues and refreshments. The Ironbark Bush Band and Gayle and Malcolm Hampson have already donated their services and Mr Knowles said he expected others would also wish to appear. Entertainers and people wishing to donate goods suitable for raffle prizes can contact Mr Knowles on 39 1362 so that he, as co-ordinator, can arrange the Appeal Day without last-minute hitches. Already, with the Christie V Appeal just hours old, Telecom staff have guaranteed they

will set up stages at the showground plus provide any other help sought. Santa Claus will attend to give children that lift of excitement only he can generate as Christmas nears. Yeppoon Bowls Club, working as part of the appeal, is holding a special function and will also be involved with the Appeal Day. Mr Knowles said the Lions would be holding further meetings to make final preparations. "We're glad we show our regard for the Coucom family and, at the same time, give others the opportunity to do the same," he said.

THE first of three major Rosslyn Bay Harbour projects is under way ... the site is now being prepared for the $1.7 million Rosslyn Bay Inn. Juris Towers Pty Ltd chairman of directors Roger Barratt said this week his company would start construction in a fortnight and expected the 30-unit resort-style motel to be operational by August next year. Rosslyn Bay Inn will be two buildings offering high-class accommodation for singles, couples or families. There will be single rooms and double rooms, plus the advantage of connecting doors so that guests can have their accommodation needs tailor-made to their requirements. All rooms will be self-contained with cooking facilities but room service will be available. Rosslyn Bay Inn is described as resort-style because it offers everything needed for a holiday on site. Tennis courts and a swimming pool plus shops and two restaurants will keep visitors fully occupied while on holiday. The shops include a laundramat, ships' chandlery, a mini food market ... and more shops will be built if needed. These businesses will serve both guests and visiting harbour users. The two-wing building is designed so that motel units have a view over Kemp Beach to Great Keppel Island and the restaurants face the harbour. Mr Barratt said architect Tony Madden had given the restaurants and shops a Polynesian appearance by specifying a thatched roof. "Rosslyn Bay Inn will be a most attractive addition to the harbour, and in fact, the Capricorn Coast," Mr Barratt said. "We have been working on this project for the past four years and have faced a lot of scepticism.

"There were a lot of people who said it wouldn't go ahead ... the proof of the pudding is there now." Coast builder Viv Deane has been entrusted with construction. Company workmen were on the site early this week. "We plan to use locals throughout construction and staffing later on, if possible," Mr Barratt said. "This is mostly a local project ... there arc 32 shareholders representing Coast residents and business people, the grazing fraternity and southern investors. "After four years of planning, Rosslyn Bay Inn is going to be a great boost to the Coast economy, as well as an aesthetic pleasure. "The buildings nestle into the back of the building site on land leased from the Harbours and Marine Department. "There will be a sunken garden following the contours of the land along Vin. E. Jones Memorial Drive and we already have palm trees under cultivation for landscaping."

Brody meets Minnie FIVE-year-old Brody Rinkevich of Barmaryee visited Mickey Mouse's special 60th birthday celebration in Brisbane on the weekend. He won the trip through a Mattel competition inviting Australian children to the festivities at the Parkroyal Hotel. The birthday was a real party with cakes, entertainment by clowns and magician, all the party goodies and a specially baked cake with Mickey's face on it. Decorations were Disney themes with Mickey taking pride of place. Unfortunately Mickey had to stay in Disneyland for his big party but the 70 Australian children enjoyed meeting his off-cider Minnie Mouse who was flown in for the party.

A MEETING will be called to discuss the possibility of chartering a bus to take children to Farnborough School from Yeppoon and return if enough interest is shown. Some interested parents who want the ease of having their children travel by bus instead of driving them to the school will hold the meeting. At present the children are unable to travel on the school bus system because of the specified school bus distance and the public bus route doesn't go via the school. Children travel free on buses within areas specified by the State school bus system. ' The parents held an informal meeting this week and decided to discuss the possibility of chartering a bus to fulfill their needs. Cooee Bay resident Karen Callaghan was asked to arrange a meeting if there is enough parent response. "We hope to charter a bus that will leave from a central area, probably Yeppoon, and return to that place in the afternoons," Mrs Callaghan said. "The possibility is there for the chartered bus to collect children from along the way to Farnborough School and drop them off on the way home. "We hope that the bus will be able to stop at Ocean Circle, Meikleville Hill, Barlows Hill, Pacific Heights and Woodwind Valley Road. "At the moment a few Yeppoon area parents are driving their children to and from the school and with smaller children it becomes difficult. "Farnborough is on the border for the State

bus system and therefore children living south of the school must be driven." Any Farnborough School parents interested in chartering a bus to the school from Yeppoon are asked to contact Mrs Callaghan, 39 4170 or Cheryl Kussrow, 39 3669. If enough parents are interested in the proposal the meeting will be called. Charges from charter bus companies will be discussed and a decision will be made if the proposal is viable.

Santa calls for helpers FATHER Christmas needs helpers to spread the word on the Coast to prepare for Christmas. The real Santa who travels the Coast just before Christmas has asked Lex Semple to arrange for some Santa volunteers to help spread the load ... "It's Santa's busy period and he can't be at everything," Mr Semple said. Anyone who doesn't work on weekends or nights is invited to contact Mr Semple, 39 1295 or leave a message at Yeppoon Fire Station and it is strictly volunteer work. There are also some trips during the week to pre-schools and kindergartens where a Santal` helper is needed. Retired people, those on unemployment or. people who have always wanted to be Santa and haven't had the chance are needed. "Some people have already volunteered, but it isn't fair to ask them to stay away from their businesses or jobs for four weeks," Mr Semple said. "Four people prepared to give up some time voluntarily would be great. "Santa has left a full supply of suits, beards. and bags to be used by the volunteers. "We go around to kindies, pre-schools, guide and brownie break-ups, club breakups, in fact, anywhere Santa is needed." Mr Semple said some trips were to Rockhampton as well as all over the Coast. The volunteers meet at the Yeppoon Fire Station where they change and are briefed on where the functionwill be and what theywill be asked to do.

Schoolies at Emu Park...many \- blamed for vandalism by few A BUNCH of out-of-town teenagers had a week of fun at Emu Park to celebrate the end of their schooldays ... and many were blamed for the acts of a few. But while some people were quick to blame vandalism on the teenagers, Emu Park police officer Senior Constable Barry Licence was just as quick to defend them ... as were two motel owners who provided accommodation. Sen Const Licence said a window had been broken at Cr Lawrie Daley's second-hand shop; a tap had been snapped off in Bicentennial Park; pot plants had been tipped over in Hill Street; some shrubs damaged near the newsagency and a couple of litter bins had been kicked around or squashed ... but he said that damage was done by "hangers-on" who visited Emu Park on the weekend. "The ones who booked in for a week's holiday were high-spirited but they weren't doing any damage," he said on Monday. "They knew they were here for a week and weren't about to make it hard on themselves. "The trouble was caused by others who blew in for the weekend. There were a few hassles on Saturday night and the problems came from an element that stayed overnight in their cars." He said the trouble-makers were an older crowd ... "if they were grade 12s they were darned big ones". He had to deal with a few of cm and was convinced they were out-of'-cowners who were looking for trouble. His remarks were backed up by Graham

Cummins of the Emu Park Endeavor Inn who had 23 school-leavers booked in. Mr Cummins said he knew that at one stage on Saturday night he probably had about 20 extra "guests" at the motel. They had "attached" themselves to the school-leavers. There was noise but no problems, so far as his motel was concerned. He still had. the schoolleavers staying there on Monday afternoon and was quite happy with their behaviour. "There was a mess in the grounds on Sunday morning so I lined up the paying guests, told them the mess was their responsibility, and had them clean up the cigarette butts from the grounds before breakfast," he said. "They accepted this as their responsibility and went about it quite happily. I've had no trouble since." He said he would be prepared to take schoolleavers in again next year if they were as wellbehaved as this year's ... but next year he would register each guest himself so that he knew exactly who was staying at the motel and who wasn't. Mr Cummins' only disappointment with "schoolies' week" fun was the observation that it was a shame that some teenagers had to get their fun out of a bottle. The Emu Park Motel also had some schoolleavers staying. Owner Helen Auriac said they had "no problems at all". "They have been very well behaved and have stayed all week and if next year's students are as well behaved we would be pleased to have them again." Steve Anderson of the Pine Beach Hotel said there were only half the number of "schoolies" this year as in previous years and he had no damage to report and no problems. "We've had them staying in the motel on previous years and have never had any problems with their behaviour." Bob Goodger of the Emu Park Grocery Store also reported "no damage" ... he said he'd been warned about previous years and kept an eye out for trouble but didn't have any. Carol Millroy of Millroy's General Store said there was no damage to report but Anne Leonard of the Emu Park Newsagency said trees had been broken around the shop and ferns had been uprooted from somewhere else and dropped in the yard. Mrs Leonard said the tenant in the flat above the newsagency had tyres let down on his car and the aerial had been snapped off. Frank Green of Greens' Hardware was another to have a trouble-free "schoolies' week". Emu Eatery and Bernie's Hot Bread had another side to report ... "they ate out the shop and were good for the town".

LSES blood donors help make record deposits LIVINGSTONE Shire State Emergency Service volunteers' decision to give blood on Saturday helped set a new record for donors at Yeppoon Hospital. The blood bank day, organised by North Rockhampton Apex Club, had more than 26 donors ... including 11 from the SES. It was a special occasion for the SES volunteers, many giving blood for the first time. It was the start of SES Week and it was their way of showing the community their degree of involvement. There were nervous laughs and many jokes as the volunteers gave their names and jollied each other along. Bob Jeacocke said he would be first to "leave a pint" and a group of fellow SES members gathered around to watch. Perched on the casualty ward bed, Mr Jeacocke listed the group's activities for SES Week which had started that morning with an activity at The Bluff involving Police and Ambulance personnel. Earlier in the week, Glynis Cumming had given a 10-minute talk to Toastmasters on the SES and ended by screening a 17-minute video. The professional video gives an outline of the SES' role in the community and how it relies on volunteers to be trained to give assistance in an emergency. It is available to any club and screening can be arranged by phoning Bob Jeacocke on 391579. The SES has 24 active members who attend regular meetings and can call on about 35 fullytrained members in an emergency. The group is within State guidelines which require a membership of 30, comprising 22 men and eight women. Mrs Cummings said the group had three active women members at present attending meetings but there were seven or eight women available in an emergency. New members are always welcome and will be fully trained in all aspects of SES activities.

Premier: Iwasaki agreement to be repealed in August '89 PREMIER Mike Ahern told parliament on Wednesday that legislation to repeal the Queensland International Tourist Centre Agreement Act covering the Capricorn Iwasaki resort would be brought before the House in the August session next year. That timing had been chosen to ensure Iwasaki Sangyo (Australia) Pty Ltd was not "unfairly disadvantaged". Once this legislation is repealed, the resort will have to deal directlywith Livingstone Shire Council. In a Ministerial Statement to the House, Mr Ahern said: "The company, in response to the government's decision to end the special agreement, outlined a number of measures it would like to see incorporated into the repealing legislation with a view to protecting its existing investment. "It's expected that an integrated resort development application from the company can be

successfully processed for that area of their holding covering existing development. "The balance of the land should be appropriately zoned under the control of the Livingstone Shire Council." He said it was intended the repealing legislation would deal with matters of non-compliance by Iwasaki under the existing agreement, and any issues left uncompleted from the agreement, as well as other matters of concern to government agencies. These include the revoking of two special leases held by the company; dedication of a road to the landing reserve (R11); provision of public access ways to the beach; and preservation of the beachfront allotments for beach protection purposes. "The Livingstone Shire Council has been involved in the discussions with the company because Iwasaki will have to deal directly with the council under the terms of the repealing legislation," Mr Ahern said.

Statement clears air for resort MEMBER for Broadsound Denis Hinton said the Premier's statement to parliament should help clear the air as far as the future of the resort was concerned. He said the company had shown no interest in ' negotiating a new franchise agreement with a development programme that would be required to fit within a specific timetable. "I believe the most appropriate tenure for the present building complex would be integrated resort development status, thus relieving the shire of certain responsibilities such as the present water supply situation," he said. "With the balance of the land zoned under the Local Government Act, the resort could extend its development either under the control of the Livingstone Shire or apply for an integrated resort act extension to cover new development. "That would be a commercial decision for the company." As far as the proposed airport at the resort, Mr Hinton said Impact Assessment Study guidelines were still being held up by the Federal Government. "Despite the company's failure to honour the terms of its franchise agreement, and recognis-

ing the difficult economic times confronted by the company, the State Government will do all within its power to assist the company to expand and prosper, but within the normal commercial guidelines available to the Australian public," Mr Hinton said.

Covered play area for Byfield school worth $57,000 MEMBER for Broadsound Denis Hinton has been advised by Deputy Premier and Public Works Minister Bill Gunn of approval of a S57,000 building project for the Byfield State School, jointly funded by the Commpnwealth and State Governments. The project provides for a covered play area which is being provided following deputations to Mr Hinton by the Byfield State School Parents and Citizens Association. "The school is in particular need of a covered play area because it is in a high rainfall area, with many wet days causing greasy conditions in the school grounds, and damp clothing in the school rooms, with the obvious health risk," said Mr Hinton. He said the covered play area will have a steel frame structure, a tank for water storage and drinking facilities, and covered links to connect it with other school buildings. "During 1988/89 a total of 593.26 million is programmed to be spent on capital works in Government schools, of which 561.19 million will be provided by the Queensland Government and 532.07 million by the Commonwealth," he said.

Police warning on fishing from Causeway Bridge PEOPLE fishing from the Causeway Bridge are a danger to themselves and to passing motorists, Emu Park Police officer Senior Constable Barry Licence said this week. "Someone is going to get killed," he said this week when issuing a warning to anyone contemplating dropping in a line at this popular Coast fishing spot. In a blunt warning, he said people fishing from the bridge could be arrested ... and that's the action he will take if anyone refuses to move when he tells them. He said he appreciated that fishermen wanted to land a "big one" when the runthroughs made the bridge a fishing paradise but no hobby was worth a human life. "It's not just the people fishing who are at risk," Sen. Constable Licence said. "People fishing from the bridge put every passing motorist at risk because they have to take evasive action. "Fishing has made this bridge one of the most dangerous spots on the Capricorn Coast." One of the biggest problems was that people fishing forgot where theywere. They became so obsessed with their hobby they forgot that cars, trucks, buses and cyclists were passing by just centimetres away. It was a natural reaction for someone playing a fish to step back ... and on the Causeway Bridge this could be fatal. "They can step back into the path of a car, truck or bus and, for someone, that's going to be the last step they take," he said. "They forget they can also step back into the path of a child on a cycle and knock it over or force the rider into the path of an on-coming or following vehicle." Sen. Constable Licence said he could direct people to leave the bridge if they were causing a hazard and he would be taking that action when-ever he saw someone fishing. He recently ordered one group of about 20 to leave the bridge and took the names and addresses of three people who appeared reluctant to follow his directive. "I warned them I had their names and if I caught them there again, they would be arrested," he said.

Coast charities give $3000 to tourist information centre

CAPRICORN Coast charities this week donated $3000 in cash and goods to the Capricorn Coast Tourist Organisation information centre. Yeppoon Rotary presented $2000 last week for stands to display information in the centre and the Yeppoon Charity market donated a television monitor and VCR to the value of $1000 so promotion videos can be viewed by visitors. The building will completely finished in time for the official opening on December 16 by Tourism Minister Geoff Muntz.

All Coast residents are invited to attend the opening and have a look at the building and some display material. CCTO president Brian Hooper said this week that 29 volunteers had offered their services to work in the centre so it could be manned sevendays-a-week. Eighteen of the volunteers aren't members of the CCTO and Mr Hooper said he is "absolutely delighted to have so many Coast people who are interested in helping tourists and therefore the Capricorn Coast".

Praise to CCTO from Coast ALP THE Capricorn Coast ALP has applauded the efforts of the Capricorn Coast Tourist Organisation in the-construction of a tourist information centre. "The information centre is long overdue. It will be a great boost towards establishing a vital and stable tourism industry on the Coast, Capricorn Coast ALP president David Timbs said this week. "It will benefit our local economy and the tourism industry in Central Queensland generally. I congratulate the local business people who are financially backing the project. "My only regret and criticism, is that not one cent of State Government money is going torwards the project. The National party has been shown up as completely ineffective in securing the expected government assistance," he said.

"Why is the State Government so negligent in its support of Capricorn Coast tourism? "How can Tourism Minister Geoff Muntz dare to come to Yeppoon in December to open the centre when he has failed us in this way? "It hurts to learn that the government is funding a $150,000 tourist centre in the Central Highlands and a Whitsunday tourist office in the minister's own electorate, especially When not one cent has been directed towards promoting one of Queensland's greatest assets, the Capricorn Coast," Mr Timbs said. "The State Government's priorities are seriously out of order. As ALP spokesman in the seat of Broadsound I challenge Mr Muntz not to dare officiate at the information centre opening unless he is prepared to bring with him a significant contribution towards the cost of the project."

Post office streamlines service to locals YEPPOON Post Office has streamlined its postal service with the introduction of a district mail box and public-use facsimile machine. Mail can now be directed to the Yeppoon area, Central Queensland and 'other places' to ease delivery of local articles. Acting postmaster Col. Edwards said this week ;hat previously all Coast and Central Queensland mail was directed to one box. "We had to keep emptying the bag for just our Yeppoon mail and sorting the rest for sending to the Rockhampton Mail Centre. "The new box will allow people in our delivery area to receive their mail more efficiently," he said. The area serviced by Yeppoon Post Office is from Kinka Beach in the south to Byfield in the• north, including street deliveries. Byfield, Cooberrie, Bungundarra and Barmaryee are delivered by contractors from Yeppoon Post Office. Emu Park and Zilzie are serviced by its post office with Keppel Sands, Coowonga, Cawar-

ral, Mt Chalmers and Tanby by mail contractors based from Rockhampton mail Centre. "The facsimile machine will be installed next week," Mr Edwards said. "Australia Post has extended this service to Coast residents to help with the flow of information required by some business houses and individuals. "The service is ideal for greeting cards and special messages. "Facsimile has taken the place of the telegram service. Customers can now send lettergrams and imagegrams Australia-wide and overseas by facsimile. "We had this service, but used to phone Brisbane or Rockhampton for them to onforward. It will be immediate service when the machine is installed." Lettergrams containing 10 lines of text for delivery the following day will cost S4; same day is S9. Imagegrams for delivery to a post office will cost S5; deliverywithin four hours is S8 and immediate S11.

Scenic Loop in next CQ Sun Map THE Capricorn Coast Scenic Loop Road will be included in the next revision of the Sun Map for Central Queensland. Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton said he has received advice from Land Management Minister Bill Glasson that the Scenic Loop has been noted on the master proof for inclusion on the next revision. "The Capricorn Coast Scenic Loop signs, costing S35,000, have been a great success in diverting tourist traffic from the Bruce Highway to the Coast," Mr Hinton said.

Gunn to open new highway THE new four lane highway stretching from the Bruce Highway for 10 kilometres towards Yeppoon will be opened by Main Roads Minister and Deputy Premier Bill Gunn on Thursday, December 1. "Construction of the road at a cost of about S6m is nearing completion and the road is expected to be ready for full traffic by opening day," Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton said. "I approached Mr Gunn about the need for the road upgrading after presentation of a submission outlining the dangerous state of the road to Mr Gunn and former Main Roads Minister Russ Hinze. "The new road is a gateway to progress as far as the Capricorn Coast is concerned ... cutting travelling time, improving road safety and encouraging tourism."

4 dolphins at Kinka FOUR dolphins were sighted off Kinka Beach on Wednesday morning. Resident Molly Crawford said the four dolphins were seen close to the shore during the high tide at about 7am. "It's the first time I've seen them that close to the land. The dolphins were turning over and around and were obviously after food. It was a wonderful sight," she said.

Yeppoon LBC offers invites for Tuesday

Group needs help YEPPOON Hospital Auxiliary needs your 1p. The 20 cent raffle is our primary source of ncome and in the past has been well supported. Through this raffle we have been able to purchase several very expensive items that have helped the staff at our hospital to care for their patients a little better. The latest major item purchased is an IVAC. This is a machine that automatically delivers a prescribed fluid directly into the vein at a preset rate. This rate can be varied to suit the patient's needs. It is a self monitoring unit which means the nursing staff are freed from what used to be a time consuming chore of constant checking, and ensures patient's safety. With this machine the nursing staff need only check if passing the patient or if a warning alarm sounds, giving them a little more time to attend to other necessary matters. We have also been able to purchase a few 'home comforts' such as tables, chairs and cushions for the courtyard and also some items to help in the kitchen. To enable us to continue this work for the hospital, its patients and staff, we need you. Come to our meetings, held on the first Thursday of each month at 7.30pm in the Community Health Centre. Our current project is a parrafin bath for the physiotherapy department, to enable the physiotherapist to help patients with bone or muscle injuries to regain the use of the affected limb sooner. The area to be treated is dipped in melted arrafin and withdraw several times until a parrafin 'skin' is formed. This 'skin' retains the warmth thus making the area treated relaxed and pliable and can then be manipulated without excessive strain to the injury, or pain being suffered by the patient. The cost of this unit is in excess of S1400 and has been ordered. We need to raise this money and are relying on your support. - Allan Bailey, Yeppoon Hospital Auxiliary vice president.


■ ABOVE: A grade winners of the Capricorn Coast Squash Rackets Association grand finals played on Saturday night at the Capricorn Coast Squash centre were: (at back) Larry Owens, Len Kelly, Nobs Drillis and Gordon Roberts. B grade winners, at front: Wayne Stewart, Shane Miners, Nick Saunders and Cane Murphy.

Get tough on dogs! I AM writing to support the proposed tough actions against many dog owners who seem to have little regard for the vast majority of us who do not have dogs but suffer from their lack of control. My children had six chooks which roamed around our home and the surrounding bush in Cooee Bay, and now we only have three, as the others were savaged to death by marauding packs of dogs during the daytime. Speaking as an ex-taxi driver I must point out that the problems caused by loose dogs, particularly in packs and especially after dark, are worse in Yeppoon than any other area I have ever lived in. The worst areas are around Cooee Bay, Adelaide Park Road and Farnborough Road. One thing which is obvious is that the proposals put to council were defeated by weak councillors concerned about alienating the votes of dog owners. I am sure that these councillors would be me respected if they made the tough logical ecisions in the best interests of all voters, rather than trying to sit on the fence. The problems of dog control have been debated in the LSC for well over a decade and once again councillors have not grasped the nettle. Please, please, make the tough decisions on fencing dog premises, getting them off the beaches, and organising reasonable fines and permit fees, or many dog owners will continue to blatantly defy the laws to the detriment of the whole community. To those dog owners who love their dogs, and keep them safe and protected in compounds, well done, but it is a pity that you are tarred with the same brush as those who do not. I would have expected more letters to the editor on this highly emotive subject, and hope they will be forthcoming. - Andrew McClelland, 40 Gregory Street: Cooee Bay.

Free services ANCILLARY service in public hospitals will now be free to all Queenslanders State Health Minister Leisha Harvey said this week. "State Cabinet agreed to drop the $15 charge for ancillary services to private patients within public hospitals," Mrs Harvey said. "This means that physiotherapy, speech therapy, occupational therapy, dietetics, podiatry, :d psychology services will be free. %.,,V"The decision would particularly benefit people in country areas in situations where such services are not provided in the private sector. "It means these services, for which they previously paid and were not re-imbursed to any significant extent by private medical insurers, will now be free." ...

YEPPOON Ladies Bowling Club members are invited to play at the club on Tuesday. Morning tea will be served at 11.30am. Play starts at noon and members hope the main green will be open for play. "When preparing the notes for the club, it was still uncertain whether the green would be ready," publicity officer Ivy McNamara said. "A notice will be placed on the board in the clubhouse as soon as possible. Members may also ring the club or the president for further information on Monday." Names must be in early and play will stop at 3pm to be followed by afternoon tea and trophy presentation. President Del Roos said she would appreciate members taking a (filled) plate for the cent sale as well as items for the cent sale. "Members please don't forget to help make the Christmas hamper a well-filled basket, which will be drawn on December 3, at the combined Christmas party with the parent club, starting at 6.30pm," Mrs McNamara said. Lucky door prizes for the night are required. Members and their partners only will be admitted, tickets available at the door. The annual meeting for the ladies club is on December 9, starting at 1.30pm. "Please attend ladies. If you have anyviews to air this is your chance." Senior vice president Ruth, congratulated club member Ivy McNamara for her win in the singles, along with C Bielenberg and ex Yeppoon Betty Pettit now a declared member for Athelstane Ladies Bowls Club and the RLBC, L Chancellor, junior vice president of the CQDLBA, B Thompson, M Callow and skip D Carrington, at afternoon tea on Tuesday, for their good effort last week in winning the beautiful Bonney Shield at Boyne-Tannum bowls club. This is the first time this shield has been thrown open to other associations. "We at Yeppoon and Rockhampton feel quite proud to have been the ones to take the shield from the Bundaberg club. Not quite sure, but think they had an anchor attached to same, methinks the CQDLBA girls had a pair of bolt cutters in their bowls' cases," Mrs McNamara said. Each winning player taking part received a small memento of the occasion, while the CQDLBA have the responsible task of looking after the magnificent shield.

Dawes, Letchford men of the match


Tie bark tti the igivwx

AFTER Allenstown's formidable total of 315, Capricorn Coast Cricket Club's third grade side made a determined effort to overhaul the score but fell short scoring 171. A dashing 56 by D Letchford was the highlight of the scoring with good starts made by several of the other batsmen: M Barsby 19, K Dunning 18, B West 21 and J Semmler 16.

CAPRICORN Coast Cricket Club's second grade game ended in a draw on the weekend and the side still leads the competition. Fasts overnight score of 6-183 was extended in the maximum 50 minutes batting time into the second day to 7-235 after some big hitting in the latter overs. With limited time to score the required runs, Coast set safety first tactics to force the draw which is against the sides normal play pattern. There were some nervous moments towards the end of the match while on the defensive. The determination of Jason Dawes with 30 not out and Dale Wetzler who figured in a good partnership and the experience of some of the senior players, namely K Semmler saved the day for Coast who finished the day at 7-123. Some bad luck eventuated from the game with Jason Dawes dislocating his knee while batting.

limbs of GOOD Samaritan time ... David '1 Coast ALP fame pulled into a Rockhampton service station, filled `er up, then tendered a Mastercard to pay the S20 bill. The garage bloke whacked the card in the machine, slid the handle or whatever back and forth ... and handed back the card saying it wouldn't work. Undeterred, David, a man aware of today's plastic money, whipped out a Keycard. The garage bloke puts it in the machine, slid the whatever back and forth, looked at the result and again said it was 'no dice'. Apparently the. cards were either bent, the machine wasn't working or the garage bloke wasn't doing whatever he should have been correctly but it left David in an interesting position. His two credit cards were useless ... and he had no cash. No doubt the usual pocket slapping went on but standing quietly in the office was another customer. "I know you," he said. "I've seen you around. My name's O'Neill. I've got the newsagency in Richardson Road." While saying this he whipped out his chequebook and paid David Timb's S20 fuel bill. As David said on Tuesday afternoon, the newsagent was paid back within 30 minutes after both credit cards —...' worked in a bank machine ... but that wasn't the point: "There's nothing more embarrassing that being caught without cash, especially after the fuel's already in the tank." It's nice to know that when the plastic money melts there's still a Good Samaritan around. The world needs more of them!!! *** SAVEMORE Centre has a problem ... the traders know their air-conditioning attracts everyone to shop locally, but lately there's been a trend among some shoppers to bring their dogs with them. Now Tony Bennett, the poor bloke who's the spokesman because he heads the traders' association, loves dogs ... but he has to remind everyone that health restrictions forbid dogs in the centre; even your nice little doggie that's really no trouble. The dog problem there in years gone by used to concern strays wandering in but the automatic doors fixed that. No, the problem now is the ones on a lead. If you're wondering what brought this problem to a head it's Tony see, earlier this week, one of those nice doggies left a solid reminder on the floor which was sort of picked up in the wheels of a shopping cart and distributed over a wide area for all to enjoy. Apparently being head of the traders gave Tony the chance to get down on his hands and knees and remove the offending "message". He doesn't mind having his nose to the grindstone but he objects when the grindstone well, um, er pongs! *** NOW some news for T-shirt freaks ... Yeppoon has its very own T-shirt. Now you can boldly state across your front: I'm Hooked on Yeppoon" and have a brightlycoloured worm on a hook wriggling down your left, um, er, side. They're on sale at Shavers and if you move fast, real fast, you can be the (wait for it) second to wear one ... Tony Bartley, an underground miner from Mt Isa, bought the first! *** GIRL sitting in Sunflower Patch lets out a shriek. Everyone turns toward her as she points to the door ... having a rest on the step was a cane toad. ••=00/
