Cancer is a word... not a sentence • By Hugh Pilbug of Kanangra Restaurant CANCER is a word ... not a sentence. How many times have you read that? I have, many times. But until I was told I had cancer, it was just a poster on a doctor's surgerywall or in the newspaper. And it means what it says ... cancer today can be beaten. There are a lot of people in our community only too willing to give their time, advice and help ... that is the reason I am writing this article. To the people who gave me so much of their time and advice in my fight against cancer, I am now clear of cancer and I thank those people. Firstly, to mywife Liz, who never once allowed me to think I could not beat the illness and for her 100 per cent support. To Dr Gregory for the help before the operation and all the help and advice of the past 12 months in getting me fit again. David Cummings of Sweetwaters, who gave me so much of his time, invaluable advice on beating cancer and all the help given to my wife and I at Kanangra. And of course, the Barlow family who are always there in any crisis ... their help on the grounds at Kanangra and a million other jobs for us while I was ill. To all the surgeons, doctors and nurses at the Rockhampton Base Hospital, who did such a good job on me and gave me the best of care. Many thanks to Malcolm Hampson and assistant Liz of Coastal Chiropractic Clinic who helped me through a very tough period. There are many more friends and relations too numerous to mention who offered help and get well wishes ... to all of you, I thank you. If there is anyone I can help, I would be only too pleased to do so. What you need to beat cancer is your own positive attitude and support from your family and friends, and these I never lacked. We have lived in Yeppoon for 11 years and after the last 12 months, I don't want to live anywhere else. Home is where the heart is and my heart is most definitely in Yeppoon.

say Capricorn with flowers WHILE Capricorn, as a region, is trying to promote itself, Ian and Pamela Bennett of Tanby have found a way to say it with flowers ... they have named a heart-shaped flower Capricorn Heart. The flower they have given this name is the Anthurium andraeanum. It is described in Tropical Blossoms of the Pacific by Dorothy and Bob Hargreaves as "Like a mysterious, unreal beauty, this waxen valentine truly typifies the tropical exotics". The Bennetts have spent the past year setting up Capricorn Hearts Tropical Flower Farm as a nursery and a tourist attraction and will open it to the public next weekend. First and foremost, the flower farm is a business set up to provide florists with a wide range of exotic, tropical flowers but the sheer beauty of these plants obviously lends itself to becoming a major tourism drawcard. The flowers are now cultivated in a 900 square metre shade house on the corner of

Nursing home to start next year STATE Cabinet has approved the invitation of tenders for construction of the S2 million nursing home at Yeppoon next to the hospital. "Work on the new 40 bed home would start early next year," Health Minister Leisha Harvey said this week. "The decision to construct the home is based

on assessment of local needs by senior departmental officers and discussions with the Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton." Mrs Harvey said the project was expected to take about 10 months to complete and will generate about 2000 man hours of employment.

Visitors have the opportunity to be taken on conducted tours of the shade house and, for further relaxation, can enjoy a devonshire tea at timber tables under a huge shadecloth covering. Taking advantage of the proximity of pineapples, the Bennetts will also be serving pineapple crush. Ian Bennett, who majored in Ecology at university, spent 26 years with the CSIRO, mainly working with cattle. His final 10 years with the organisation were spent at Rockhampton. When contemplating a new career, he considered opening a prawn farm but Koorana Crocodile Farm owner John Lever, a friend, suggested he look into raising Anthuriums. Mr Bennett, who said he had an understanding of plants and an analytical mind, travelled south looking at ideas during holidays. He heard two stories about anthuriums ... they could be grown and they couldn't. That was when he decided to pursue the idea to Hawaii where the flowers are grown commercially and from where they used to be exported to Australia. During his trip he made up his mind to grow the flowers commercially and, when he re• CONTINUED ON PAGE 11

MEMBER for Broadsound Denis Hinton has negotiated two places on the C 1 DO Management Committee for the CCTO without the need for a financial contribution from the CCTO. He said the appointment, which is allowed under the CTDO's constitution with its power to co-opt, is being provided until June 30 next year. From now until June 30, a new financial structure for the CTDO can be negotiated to satisfactorily accommodate sub-regional organisations such as the CCTO. Mr Hinton said State Government funding for the C1DO, which at S85,000 contributes about half of the board's funding, would be advanced to the CTDO to ensure its continued operations. Mr Hinton said the continuation of funding would be dependent on the success of the negotiations and adequate financial and representative arrangements for the Capricorn Coast regional body being established. "If, however, the CCTO makes unreasonable demands, it will lose State Government support," Mr Hinton said. He said the CTDO had previously offered two places on the board to the CCTO, based on a total of 100 financial CTDO members being on the Capricorn Coast. This decision was based on a directive of Queensland Tourism and Travel Corporation chairman Sir Frank Moore. "I do not give a damn what Sir Frank Moore says," Mr Hinton said. "He is not the government and the decision is not his. The CTDO demand was unreasonable."

Reflectorised numbers will save lives

Beat the Heat

SECONDS count when it's a matter of life and death and the lack of reflectorised house numbers is costing Yeppoon and Emu Park District Ambulance those vital seconds. Ambulance superintendent Geoff Reynolds said this week homes at Emu Park were the worst offenders but the same problem existed along the length of the Coast. "When someone is suffering a heart attack or is choking, every second is vital," he said this week. "The time we spend looking for a particular house and trying to work out where it is by the last number we saw could cost someone's life." Mr Reynolds gave Pattison Street, Emu Park, as an example of the lack of numbers problem. "The numbers there are so intermittent it's not funny," he said. But practically any street could be named with the same problem. Mr Reynolds said what he would like to see was every house carrying a reflectorised number in a prominent place. He wants them reflectorised so that house numbers can be picked up in the spotlights ambulances carry and he wants the numbers in a prominent place so they can easily be spotted. "Many people did the right thing when they built their house by putting numbers in a prominent position but then trees grew nearby

THE Yeppoon Lions Club's Christie V Appeal is falling into place nicely with a swag of offers of help and donations. Appeal co-ordinator Don Knowles said every effort was being directed toward the December 10 Appeal Day which will be held in Yeppoon Showground from 1pm to I 1pm. The Appeal Day will feature non-stop music from four bands, Ironbarque, Atlanta, Ambush and This Way Up, plus singers Janine Vaughan and Vocaleyes. It's planned as a family entertainment day with plenty of raffles and prizes plus steakburgers, hot dogs and refreshments. Mr Knowles said all proceeds from the day would be presented to the Coucom family. The recent sinking of the Christie V, which cost the lives of Cedric and Bruce Coucom, had brought home to the community the enormous respect felt for the family. "Once the appeal was announced, the offers of help flowed in," he said. "Raffle prizes donated include a return trip to Brisbane flying East-West; a weekend for two at Great Keppel Island Resort, a framed

or in front of the numbers and the effort has been wasted,” Mr Reynolds said. He suggested reflectorised numbers, at least 10cm high, (4") were best situated on letterboxes where they were close to the road. Second preference was near the front door. The only problem with doorways was that they are often covered by shrubs or flyscreens and could be hard to see. His idea of the "ultimate" would be reflectorised numbers painted on gutters in front of homes ... but there are too many streetswithout gutters to make this idea worthwhile. Seconds are also lost in emergencies because street signs are missing or faded ... and don't have numbering information on them. "Choose a number in Queen Street, Yeppoon, turn into the street from say Arthur or Mary Street and see how quicklyyou can find that number," Mr Reynolds said. "If you turn the wrong way you have to drive to the next street before you can do a U-turn and seconds are ticking away." Rural properties on the Coast also cause concern because owners don't display the property name in a prominent place. Mr Reynolds said too many properties had little or no identification or if they did, it was lost in long grass.

"Telecom is providing all the printing and manpower for the Appeal Day plus three phones on stage which volunteers will answer to take down donations as they are phoned in." In line with the family theme, John Dowie will be providing train rides during the Appeal Day Mr Knowles said he was particularly interested in hearing from school-age children as to what they would like to see provided on the day. "Some may wish to help out or may have ideas on what we can provide," he said. "Emu Park Scouts are setting up a flying fox in the shoWground and there may be more ideas like this that can be passed on." Anyone wishing to help can phone Mr Knowles on 39 1362. Donations can be posted to the Lions Club at P.O. Box 203, Yeppoon, 4703. Donations can also be left with Norm Hill at the Savemore centre today, (Friday) while he is entertaining with his musical saw.

Capricorn Coast Pool Maintenance

Bowen part of task force to entice industry to CO region LIVINGSTONE Shire chairman Cr John Bowen is part of a task force set up on Wednesday to look into ways of getting industry moving in Central Queensland. The meeting, called by Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton, formed a task force committee comprising Cr Bowen, Rockhampton Mayor Ald Jim Webber, Central Queensland Federation of Chambers of Commerce president Tom Kaunitz, CTDO representative John Chapman and Confederation of Industry representative Graham Bloxsom. Cr Bowen said the task force was due to hold an informal meeting yesterday (Thursday). He said the Wednesday meeting formed the steering group to look at ways of enticing industrial development to Central Queensland. His role was to prepare a report to Livingstone Shire Council to see whether council wanted to become involved with the group. Mr Hinton said he convened the meeting to create a new development body to be called an Enterprise Centre. The steering committee had been formed to apply for State Government Department of Industrial Development subsidies. Cr Bowen said the Enterprise Centre, when up and running, would provide a means of pooling reserves throughout the region and would be able to call on funds available from the State Government. - "About $70,000 is available in various forms. Some of it would be available on a dollar-fordollar basis," Cr Bowen said. He was enthusiastic about the group because it would provide a means of co-ordinating activities designed to attract industry. "There's a severe lack of new industry in Rockhampton and the whole region would benefit if new secondary industries could open in the city," he said. He was critical of State Government efforts to date to attract industry to Central Queensland and felt the new group could be more

successful. "I've been- in Local Government for nine years and have never heard of a single project passed on to Livingstone Shire Council from the State Government," Cr Bowen said. "The Department of Industrial Development is supposed to be promoting Queensland as a whole as a potential business site but we're not hearing from them about people or businesses interested in our region. "Either they are getting the inquiries and passing them on to South-East Queensland and North Queensland, and neglecting Central Queensland ... or the department is not getting any inquiries at all. "If it's not promoting Central Queensland we should be told why it's not. "If it's not getting the inquiries, the department should be disbanded." Cr Bowen said this area was always being told it had to promote itself yet Queensland Tourism and Travel Corporation chairman Sir Frank Moore had told a recent meeting on the Coast about how development was flying in Port Douglas. "Sir Frank Moore seems to forget he heads a department that represents the whole of Queensland, not just the 20 per cent at the top of the State," Cr Bowen said.

Win $600 fridge at QATB carnival ANYONE attending this year's Ambulance Christmas Carnival could win a family-size fridge full of groceries and drinks worth a total of $600. Yeppoon and Emu Park District Ambulance superintendent Geoff Reynolds said the carnival would be held over 10 days between December 20 and January 1 and there would be a prize draw on each of the 10 nights. "We want people to not only attend the carnival but also to stay until closing time when the draw will be held each night," he said. "The tickets in every draw are free and can be picked up at the carnival or will be available in the Capricorn Coast Mirror. The winner must be present when the prize is drawn or it will jackpot to the final night." There are a few changes to this year's carnival to make it more attractive to patrons and rganisers. The number of nights has been educed so that ambulance volunteers will not be called upon to work throughout the preChristmas period and the fewer nights will mean families can attend more often during the holiday period. The grocery wheel prize has been changed so that winners have a choice of groceries or Christmas cheer such as a bottle of scotch or stubbies. Mr Reynolds said the optional prizes would make the wheel more attractive to patrons and would result in faster draws. Everyone buying a raffle ticket will be given a free ticket in the prize draw that night and all tickets would be put in a barrel for the final draw of the refrigerator and contents. "The winner must be present to win any of the prizes we're giving away," Mr Reynolds said. "This should result in a huge crowd on the final night because the prize is a big one." The refrigerator will be on display in the window at H.W. Findlay's until the draw.

Coast girl wins bank competition


YEPPOON Primary School student Deborah Bruynzeel was the central region's first Dollarmite winner. • Deborah was selected at random by the Commonwealth Bank's computer from children throughout Australia who had banked regular amounts. "Dollarmite is the bank's package for children up to 12 years," Yeppoon Commonwealth Bank manager Graham Basham said. "It doesn't matter how much the children bank, but to qualify in the competition they must bank regularly and often. "Any child with a Dollarmite account is automatically included in the next draw." The bank's schools' officer Therese Haydock presented Deborah with a CEL Garfield video cassette pack at the school last week.

Christmas Garden Party Sat, Dec 17 from 11.30am

Emu Park chamber ROCKHAMPTON Botanic Gardens curator Tom Wyatt was guest speaker at Emu Park's Chamber of Commerce Christmas social on Tuesday night at the Endeavour Inn. Among the 30 people present at the dinner were Livingstone Shire Chairman Cr John Bowen, Lilian Bowen, member for Broadsound Denis Hinton, Central Queensland Federation of Chambers of Commerce president Tom Kaunitz. Mr Kaunitz is also Rockhampton Chamber of Commerce president. "Mr Wyatt spoke about the Kershaw Gardens and that one thing remembered from the bicentennial year will be the gardens," chamber vice president Ron Hyslop said. "He also had a go at the federal government about its policy on the heritage listing of Queensland rain forest." "Mr Wyatt told us the area had the best hardwood timber in Australia, probably the world, and yet they are bull-dozed into the ground for farming." Mr Hyslop said the fledgling chamber was proving its worth in the Emil Park business community. "We hope we have drawn the people to"gether." Cr Bowen told the meeting Bell Park Caravan Park would be upgraded ... either by council or leasing to private enterprise. "In mid-December Cr Bowen is going to Brisbane for a meeting with the State government to discuss Emu Park's sewerage scheme and said he hopes to come back with a swag of money," Mr Hyslop said. The chamber will not meet in December. The next meeting is on Tuesday. January 31, 1989.

"The objective is to get state cabinet support for financial assistance for the shire over and above what is normally given in subsidy. "Emu Park is a difficult and therefore expen-

sive area to sewer. It has a low ratepaying base and cannot afford a sewerage scheme under the current subsidy available. "It is critical that Emu Park is sewered ... there is an enormous health risk. I have had so many complaints about raw sewerage swelling out of the ground.," Mr Hinton said. "Emu Park residents must have a sewerage system. It is just not good enough the way it is now and something has to be done ... and I am going to do my utmost to get financial support for a sewerage scheme."

YEPPOON Fire Brigade and Livingstone Shire Council tested the fire-fighting ability of Yeppoon auxiliaries and fire equipment in a joint exercise last week ... and accidently proved the emergency 000 phone number is working satisfactorily. Council decided at its November meeting to burn the shell of a boat that had been abandoned on Ross Creek bank, adjacent to the boat ramp. Yeppoon Fire Brigade was asked by council if it was interested in using the boat-burning as a training exercise for fire auxiliaries and testing equipment. The exercise was not intendql to test the emergency number but the fire lit up Yeppoon's skyline so well many residents rang to report it. Rockhampton Fire Chief George Grassie said he was delighted with the response from Coast residents who reported the fire. "Each caller was clear and precise in their directions," he said. "They are to be complimented." The fire was set by council with the brigade standing by to contain and extinguish. Station Officer Howard Driver said council nuisance inspector Keith Sleeman had organised the firing of the boat and the exercise was timed to start after it was lit. "He did a good job. It was placed well away from the power lines and he made sure the area was cleared," Mr Driver said. "I was also pleased with our auxiliaries and their use of the fog nozzle. "The nozzle is new and gives off a fine spray of water. It uses less water and is a much more efficient operation in fighting fires. The auxiliaries train every Wednesday night to be familiarised with equipment and buildings. "There are different drills every week. We check alarm systems, hold drills, test equipment, familiarisation of buildings and their interiors and evacuations," he said.

Trader praises youth

Zonta club provides $500 for CCTO toilet

IN last week's Mirror, the Savemore Centre Traders Association placed an ad requiring th service of two juniors for Savemore's Christmas promotion. Forty-two young people, ages ranging from 14 to 18, applied for the position. Through your paper I would like to thank all applicants. I would also like to congratulate them for the way they presented themselves for their interviews. Their parents and their schools can be proud of them. Unfortunately only two positions were required, making the decision on which two was very difficult as each one more than qualified for the job. There certainly is a wealth of talent among the younger generation who live on the Coast, and I'm sure that if Coast residents supported local businesses a lot more, there would be more jobs available for these teenagers. Once again thanks and congratulations to all who applied for the position. - Tony Bennett, Chairman of Savemore Centre Traders Association.

ZONTA International district governor Susan Laidlaw was this week shown the area in which the organisation's 5500 donation will be spent in the CCTO Information Centre now being built at Ross Creek. Mrs Laidlaw, from New Zealand, spent Tuesday and Wednesday at Seaspray with Rockhampton Zonta member Blossom Hooper, whose husband, Brian, is CCTO chairman. Rockhampron Zonta, the only Zonta club in Central Queensland, has given the Coast tourist group S500 to provide facilities for the disabled in the Information Centre's female toilet. Mrs Laidlaw was impressed with the centre. She was also impressed with the Capricorn Coast. Her one regret was that 10 or 12 years ago she had visited Rockhampton for a cattle sale and was unaware the Capricorn Coast was so close and had so much to offer. Her position as district governor puts her in charge of about 2500 Zontians representing almost 90 clubs in both Australia and New Zealand. Obviously proud of Zonta, Mrs Laidlaw said it was the only service organisation with increasing membership. It meets on the third Wednesday every month in Rockhampton. The meeting she attended this week was the Christmas function. It was one of many she has, and will be, attending during hervisit to Australia. She said she had been able to attend clubs in Western New South Wales and in North Queensland, which meant she was able to meet many of the more isolated members. She also attended the charter meeting of the Albury/Wodonga Club but was outranked at the function by the International President from Columbus, Ohio, who was visiting Australia for a world service club leaders conference in Adelaide. Mrs Laidlaw said while she was in Adelaide, a Zonta Amelia Earhart Fellowship worth SUS6000 was presented to a Flinders University student to study pollutants in the ionosphere for a year ... work connected with the Greenhouse Effect. Amelia Earhart was a member of Zonta and 1988 celebrated the 50th year in which Fellowships have been presented in her memory. Thirty-two, each worth SUS6000, are awarded annually. All are for study related to aerospace and all are for women. Zonta was formed in Buffalo, New York, in 1919.

Four join Lionesses FOUR women joined Emu Park Lioness Club after an open day held on Saturday at the CWA Hall. District Q4 Lions liaison officer John Cruickshank, Gladstone, presented a short talk on what the organisation is about and what is expected from Lions and Lionesses members ... fellowship, community service, friendship and fun. "He told us about the international part of being in the Lions organisation and howwe are members of a large family. There are clubs in every western country," Emu Park Lioness Club secretary Carole Taylor said. "I explained to the six guests that being a Lioness does not take up a lot of time ... unless you have an executive position and then there are compensations for that too. We find our horizons are expanded." Acting Emu Park Lioness Club president Bcrvl Wincen spoke to the gathering about what the club had accomplished since its inception in 1985. "We have distributed 54,500, plus donations as needed, to local organisations ... SES, Emu Park-Yeppoon QATB building fund, Don Ireland Swimming Complex, RSL, Safety House, Bush Children's Home, Red Cross and we sponsored a child to Camp Quality (a holiday camp for children with terminal cancer)." Meetings are held on the first Wednesday in each month. The next meeting is at 7.30pm, Wednesday, December 7 at Emu Park RSL Hall. Anyone who wasn't able to attend the open day is welcome to attend any meeting.

100 Julie's Jazzers ONE hundred children and teenagers will tread the boards of Yeppoon Town Hall stage on Sunday night.

Pre-schoolers to 17-year-olds have been learning. new routines for the end-of-year concert. They have one lesson a week at the Bakehouse Gym under the tuition of Julie Semple. The classes are divided into age groups.

Nob Creek open day NOB Creek Pottery is celebrating Christmas early this year with an open day on Sunday December 4 from 9am to dusk. Steve and Beth Bishopric have organised tilt selling exhibits, ranging from furniture to pottery and invite Coast residents and visitors to spend a day at the pottery. "Bring your lunch and picnic under the trees... and everyone has a complimentary glass of wine," Beth said. Coast residents Glen Stickley and Steve Bundred will have their handcrafted furniture on show. Glen makes slab table tables and formed seats and coffee tables from sleeper off-cuts. Steve's furniture is made in one piece from sawn timber. Gympie resident Dave Scott has sent some of his sculptures. Dave uses a touch of humour in his Australian scluptures. The new stock is in the same style he displayed at Nob Creek Pottery's Easter open day. Carol and Arthur Ross of Eungalla have sent examples of their salt-glazed wood-fired pottery. Steve and Beth have invited local potters Helen Crandall and Helen Yaxley with their wood-fired kiln functional domestic pottery. The Bishoprics have all their decorative and functional pots on display. "We have pots up to two feet high, ideal as decorative floor pots, in lustrous reds, blacks and greys."

Ladies bowls results YEPPOON Ladies Bowls Club president C Roos welcomed members and visiting Rockhampton and Emu Park clubs to its trophy day. The main green opened in time for the special day and everyone enjoyed a game prior to the presentation. "The green played very well," publicity officer Ivy McNamara said. "Our thanks are sincerely extended to the parent club and any help they may have had in reopening the green so soon under the circumstances. The Christmas basket could do with some more items. It will be drawn on December 3 (tomorrow) during the combined ladies and men's Christmas party starting about 6.30pm. "Members and their partners will only be admitted. Tickets are on sale at the door for a small token and admittance is only to holders of tickets," she said. All members are invited to attend the annual general meeting on December 9 at 1.30pm.

Tanby Road ideal for Capricorn Hearts • CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 turned, started looking for land along Tanby Road. He had chosen Tanby Road as the area offeririg the ideal climate but initially had difficulty in finding what he was after. He placed a classified in the Capricorn Coast Mirror last year and soon after was shown exactly what he needed. Pamela Bennett said the small home on the corner of Tanby and Hannahs Road required a lot of remodelling but it offered turn-of-thecentury charm as well as being sited on two acres, providing room for expansion. The home was moved from Mt Morgan to Tanby Road in the early 1900s and has withstood the ravages of time and weather. While the house was being restored, work started on the 900 square metre shade house ... a huge black construction in front of the house fronting Tanby Road. Inside, computer sprinkling systems were installed as well as woodchip flower beds and a concrete driveway. Mr Bennett's "analytical mind" has been put to the test many times in the 12 months developing the flower farm. In recent weeks he has had a problem with salinity in the water and was confident it had been overcome by the weekend. But correcting a problem is a slow process. "A mistake takes five to six weeks before it shows up in the plants, then the -corrective measures take a similar time to show they have taken effect," he said on Sunday. While the salinity problem is a worry, Mr Bennett said similar flower farms in Cairns had greater problems because of their humid climate ... "We can control our water," he said. The commercial aspects are interesting. Each plant grows four Capricorn Heart flowers a year and the Bennetts are aiming to have 25,000 plants offering 100,000 plants for sale each year.

But the full impact of 900 square metres of Capricorn Hearts and a wide range of other tropical plants will also provide a drawcard to tourists. As well as the devonshire teas, pineapple crush and shade house tour, visitors will also be able to buy plants, or cut flowers, on the spot, or arrange to have them sent to their homes at the end of their holiday. "The cut flowers last up to three weeks, but manyvisitors will prefer to have live plants sent to their homes," he said. Mrs Bennett, as well as working to create the flower farm, also works as a charge sister at the Base Hospital. She's hoping the farm will soon be calling on her time so much that she can retire to work with her "green thumb". Both appear to have green thumbs ... "no artistic flair, but if we plant something it grows," she said.

Historical society needs members THE aim of the Capricorn Coast Historical Society is to foster an appreciation of the historical development of the Capricorn Coast and to put together a photographic history of Yeppoon and district. You are needed to help make the society viable. It is a pity that people say things from the past ought to be kept, but don't do anything about it. Historical society members don't have big burdens to carry like large amounts of fundraising and running about. People are needed who are interested in preserving the past for the future. There must be people here on the Coast who would like to be involved in something that doesn't take up all their time ... and the historical society is the ideal group to join. If you are interested and don't have any transport to get to meetings, contact Leo Carpenter, 39 1830. Membership fees are reasonable at S5 and 52.50 for pensioners.

Coast cricket CAPCOAST 2nd grade cricketers encountered e resistance than expected when they met at Rockhampton on the first day of their two-day game. Norths chose to bat on a good batting strip and were in trouble early with the score 4/16 at first drinks. Wayne Kitchen and Ken Ogilvie did the damage but Norths responded with a couple of sound partnerships. Norths, with early-season problems fielding full teams recalled some old stagers to set an example in the club. One of the players was Yeppoon resident Brian Gough who, in his "late" 40s, still plays a high level of competition cricket. Gough added start to Norths' batting and was last man dismissed for 34 out of a team effort of 153 for the first innings. In reply, CapCoast was 1/24 at stumps. CapCoast bowling honours were evenly shared.

Rugby union AGM CAPRICORN Coast Rugby Union Club held its annual general meeting last week and elected the 1989 executive and coaches. Dave Ruck did not stand for re-election and Mark Maguire was elected president. Secretary isJacky Hayes and treasurer is Nina Krebs. The committee: Mick Bongers, Paul Marshall, Tony Bennett, Mick Lucht and Brad Flynn. Tony Bennett was voted senior coach and under-19 coach is Mark Maguire. In his president's speech Dave Ruck said he had enjoyed his five years with club. "The club was formed five years ago and we have had a string of successes. When we had a reserve side it won two premiers and when upgraded to A, we went to the finals. Not bad for a five-year-old club," Mr Ruck said. "This year the club started an under-19 side and from bare rookies they have formed into a strong contender for the 1989 games. "The people who formed and worked for this club have done an excellent job. They are the reason for its success." He said because of the good grounding the club will go on to a bigger and brighter future. Mr Ruck is leaving the Coast for 12 months. wife, Karen, has taken up an exchange king position in England. e club held its presentations in November and major trophy winners were: Nina Krebs, Graham Barnes, Mick Bongers, Jeff Bennett, Ian Hutton, Glen Kavanagh and Nick Corbet. A Christmas party is on Saturday (tomorrow) at the Gilligan's residence, Park Street. Members and supporters welcome.

Basketball grand final results • • Continued from page 16 position to concede a deficit of only seven points in the second half." When Pink Galahs faced Gadabouts in the B grade women's match, it fell heavily on captain Kerry Bailey and Jan Schmidt to keep them in the game early. "Usual stalwart Megan Anderson had trouble keeping her feet and it was surprising to find Galahs with the half time lead despite Gadabouts giving away plenty of posession from missed shots." Toni Frazer's long shots started to hit in the second half and Trish Melden looked the most committed player for Gadabouts. The big match for the A grade women, saw old protaganists Seagulls and Billabongs head-tohead. "Two unlucky foul calls seemed to throw Seagulls who were constantly harassed by Sue Stevenson and Sharon Spelling who fed Leanne Ferguson plenty of first half ball while she drew foul after foul at the basket. "A lighter moment of the second half was when Stevenson, believing she had been sent off with her fifth foul, went from the court with all the ceremony of handshakes from opposing players. "But when the foul went to team-mate Ferguson, Seagulls' Joanne Taylor gave a good performance of taking back her handshake when Sue returned to the court." Despite holding their own in the second half Seagulls only real hope hinged in getting any or all of the trio of Spelling, Stevenson and Ferguson off the court first, all were on four fouls. It was Seagulls top scorers Cathy Rosenthal and Joanne Taylor who went first, leaving Shame Willoughby wet and barefoot called back onto the court after thinking she had finished. "The crowds had really formed for the A men's game between Scoobs and Saints. Scoobs had the height advantage while Saints had the big match experience players playing two Rockets and three girls from the women's competition," he said. "Unfortunately, it was a horror day for Scoobs who have done so well recently. John Christensen, normally a consistent shooter, could not find the basket on the day and it fell to Tony Novak, playing up from a lower grade team to top score for his team. • Matthew Dooley, also playing up,.was another who stood out for Scoobs. "Despite feeling unwell, Carrot Campbell led the scoring for a team who scored excellent averages, a disconcerting experience for any defence." Brett Rennick was the Saints player who played most above his usual game. After the games, players, parents, officals and spectators went to the presentation held at Yeppoon Showground. Twenty-four junior and intermediate awards were made and recognition given to the Coast's under 14 boys who made it to the grand final of the Rockhampton competition.

Seagulls hoping to Rockhampton scouts note see ex-Kangaroo Coast's top basketballers about '89 season YEPPOON Seagulls executive members are hoping to meet ex-rugby league international Colin Scott on the weekend to discuss signing him up for the 1989 season. Seagulls president Cr Maurie Webb said Scott was on the Brisbane Bronco's transfer list and would obviously be a major asset to the Seagulls who contested one of the grand finals this year. "We believe Scott has been talking to a club up this way and we want to make sure he hears about us, and the Capricorn Coast as a place to live, before he makes any decision," Cr Webb said. The club made this move after realising Rockhampton Rugby League was interested in having a player of this calibre as a coaching director for schools. Scott, who has played for Queensland throughout the 1980s as fullback, would be the perfect choice for Central Queensland as coaching director. Cr Webb said he hoped negotiations with Scott would be successful because he would be the first to sign on this Sunday at the Strand Hotel. "The sign-on day starts at 1pm by the pool," Cr Webb said. "We're signing-up players for all three grades for the 1989 season. Anyone interested in playing A, Reserves or under 19s can attend on Sunday.

A specialist six-man team will enter the 2,000m sprint with six of the marathon team entering the sprint event as number two team. "Club membership has trebled since starting a few months ago.

THE peak of the basketball season was on Sunday, when the top Coast teams played head-to-head for the major 1988 grand finals at the Cooee Bay stadium. Spectators came from Rockhampton and local areas to witness the achievements of Capricorn Coast basketball in less than the two years it has been going. Outstanding players were noted by Rockhampton scouts while some of the leading lights from that competition were impressed by the standard of play and organisation. "Some vowed to join Coast basketball in 1989," Coast basketball publicity officer Don Willoughby said. For sheer white knuckle excitement the junior grand final between Demons and Devils was unsurpassed on the day. "Always likely to provide a close match, these teams really turned it on. Devils opened aggressively, really turning the head on Demons' top scorer Nashua Harris," he said. The fouls mounted but the tactics paid off when Harris failed to make that all-important first shot from the one on one penalties. Troy Spyve, in his first basketball season, set up the first half lead with 12 personal points ... giving an 11 point break. A basketball game is always prone to rapid reversals and minutes into the second half it was evident Demons were on a determined comeback. Devils coach Alan Thomas anxiously watched the clock while minute-by-minute his lead was pegged back whiile an anxious Megan Anderson watched the clock tick away their change to steal the edge before full time. It was the clock that finally won that round when, despite a desperate charge home, Demons were pegged at the point by only a single basket. Devils showed greater depth of talent with good scoring and defence from all players. Other exceptional performances came from Matty Coyle and Wesley Titmarsh for Devils and Matthew Wex and Andrew Cowan for Demons. The intermediate game was expected to be a walkover for the undefeated CK Motors Celtics. Never previously headed, CKs were shocked to find themselves down by six points at the break. With their usual running game unable to counter Rebels towering Tony Novak who was forced to move at will to take the best post position and dominate the offensive and defensive boards. When CK finally directed some defence to neutralise Novak the game turned around and Tony was fouled off. Adrian Deurloo was clearly the outstanding player for CK with the unassuming Barry Phillips turning in a deceptively strong performance. For Rebels, Tony Novak's 26 points in only half a game speaks for itself and Matthew Dooley played one of his best games of the season. "It was disappointing to have an injury stricken under-manned and uncoached Trailblazers facing the Coasts under 16 elite team of Coasters," Mr Willoughby said. "With players like Deurloo, Moodey, Novak and Phillips against them, the high school team could be forgiven if they had thrown in the towel. "For some, that appeared to be the case but Richard Machin showed the way with perhaps his best game. He put his stamp on all facets of the game and lifted the spirits of his teammates who fought exhaustion and a hopeless

THERE'S a story in this week's Capricorn Coast Mirror which calls on householders to provide reflectorised numbers on their homes so that ambulancemen who are called out in an emergency can find the place they're looking for. It's so logical and sensible it's practically a non-story because commonsense dictates every home should be numbered. So, think fot a moment ... is your home numbered? If someone in your family was unlucky enough to have an accident at home, have a heart attack or swallow something that choked them, could the ambulance find your home quickly? Has a tree grown in front of your number? Think carefully because your life could depend on the answer. Now, the bloke who wants you to put up reflectorised numbers is ambulance superintendent Geoff Reynolds ... and he admitted the Ambulance Station doesn't have a number on the front of the building!!! •

• •

BY the way, he's arranging for a number to go up ... he realises the ambulance has to set an example. But he does have a good reason for not having a number. Some years ago the station's number was 62 James Street ... now it's 42. The change in numbers threw the whole street into confusion. The Mirror was also affected when it first started in Pat Andersen', Real Estate business. We understood the ac. dress was 38 James Street. We immediately fell foul of another business which claimed it was at 38. We were both right ... we were at the old 38 and the other chap was in the new 38! • •• ANYWAY, "Old Baldy" got a bright idea when talking to Geoff Reynolds ... he suggested the ambulance get a price on knocking out suitable reflectorised numbers and sell them. Geoff was a trifle worried about the idea and reckoned the ambulance could get stuck with heaps of numbers glowing away in a dark cupboard. Undeterred, "OB" rang a mate to ask how to go about it. The answer was simple ... get a die cut for 10 numbers from 0 to 9. "Each die will cost about $200 to $300," his mate said. "All up, it will set you back $2000 or $3000 for the 10 numbers." "OB" sucked in his breath and started thinking of a different idea but his mate had a new idea that would cost less than $1000. All you need is three dies." That had "OB" puzzled until his mate explained: "Get householders to use Roman numerals. All you will need is I, V and X!!!" His laughter sounded like Ben Hur, Hur, Hur! • •• LAST week, the Savemore Traders had a problem with dogs ... this week it's garbage. Apparently some people take their garbage with them when they go shopping and drop it into the traders' industrial bins. The result, of course, is that the traders quickly run out of space for their garbage causing tempers to flare. They ask shoppers to "do the right thing" ... and leave their garbage at home! • •• COAST bloke with rather short, wide feet told a mate this week he'd like to get a pedicur . "but I'm embarrassed about my feet". He the sort who wouldn't go to a dentist because his tooth had a cavity!! • •• MAURIE WEBB trots into the office late Wednesday afternoon with a story on this page about signing up an ex-intemational league player for the Seagulls ... but as the interview. dragged on he said: "Hurry up, I have to shift my sprinkler." Wonder if Bob Hawke could get away with that line?
