Hinton invites Wright to erosion meeting: 'Let us see

the colour of his money' MEMBER for Broadsound Denis Hinton is ready to move on the Capricorn Coast beach erosion problems in co-operation with Livingstone Shire Council and Federal Government funding being obtained through representations by Member for Capricornia Keith Wright. "I have written to Keith Wright and invited him to meet me on Yeppoon's Main Beach on Saturday, March 11 at 10am, to compare the level of assistance that the Federal Government and the State Government are prepared to provide to assist the Livingstone Shire Council with its beach erosion problems," Mr Hinton said. "I like Mr Wright's 'three tiers of Government' approach to beach erosion. "I-know that the State Government will put forward at least 25 cents of every dollar expended on beach protection and Mr Wright's contribution from the Federal Government may make it financially viable for council to budget for beach erosion works. "Let's hope so anyway. Mr Wright has promised assistance. Let us see the colour of his money," he said. Mr Hinton also will take, as a matter of urgency, to State Cabinet a submission by Livingstone Shire Council for special assistance. He said the beach erosion problems are clearly too large for council to cope with from its present financial resources. "Make no mistake however, the responsibility for beach restoration is a Local Government matter and Local Government in Queensland protects its rights and responsibility very fiercely," Mr Hinton said. "The Queensland Government is currently preparing legislation to recognise Local Government in its constitution and any suggestion that the powers and responsibilities of Local Government should be reduced are unlikely to be favourably received by the Queensland Local Government Association. • CONTINUED ON PAGE 4

• ABOVE: Jim Bartlett and Evie Moller from the Causeway Lake Store were able to enjoy a quiet break fishing opposite their store after the crowds on Sunday attending the Emu Park Lions/4R0 fishing contest. Jim and Evie made a point of taking a break because they were "tickled Pink" at how the clean the area was after the contest. "We thought we'd have a big job on our hands cleaning up," Jim said. "Instead, we have time to dangle a line."

FIVE RECEIVE CITIZENSHIP ON AUSTRALIA DAY FIVE Livingstone Shire residents became Australian citizens yesterday (Thursday). Shire chairman Cr John Bowen presented Archibald Bent, Choong Ling Ch'ng, Huan Teng Ch'ng, Beryle Elliott and Wolfgang Mai with books about Australia and Australian citizenship certificates- in a ceremony at the council chambers. This year has been designated Year of Citi-

zenship by Prime Minister Bob Hawke. "In a nation in which so many of us are immigrants or descended from immigrants, citizenship is perhaps the most important symbol of our commitment to our nation." Mr Hawke said. "Yet there are many people who. though they live and work legally in Aust ralia and while they identify thoroughly with Australia, still have

not taken the decision to become citizens. "Citizenship opens the door to some fundamentally important rights: the right to vote and be elected to parliament; the right to possess an Australian passport and to receive the protection of the Australian government overseas; the right to permanent employment in the Australian Public Service and the right to serve in the armed forces."

Glen Rohl, a former Pacific Hotel staff member, was burned and suffered internal injuries recently when a fishing boat he was working on caught fire at Rosslyn Bay Harbour.

Want obedience? DO you have a dog? Do you wish it to be more obedient? A dog obedience beginners course starts on Tuesday, February 7 at 7.30pm Cooee Park for an hour. The course is for eight weeks and is a basic, handlers course for all dogs aged from six monihs and owners from 11 years and older. "All you have to take is yourself, your dog and a leather lead and choker," organiser Diane Ziebell said. "If you don't have a leather lead and choker they can be purchased from the instructor." The dogs don't have to have a pedigree. They can be all breeds (mixed) and range in size from a miniature poodle to a Great Dane cross and all shapes and sizes in between. "The only stipulation is that the owner or person handling the dog is able to control it. Please, no-one under 11 years. "It is useless for a small person to try to control a dog nearly the same size," she said. "In the basic handlers course we teach the people how to train their dog. A lot of people come to the course and think they will have the perfect dog in eight weeks ... but it isn't so." The course teaches you how to control your dog ... but it is only a start. People taking the beginners course can continue the training by moving into a more advanced course. Owners are taught how to handle their dogs ... walking on a lead; sitting beside the owner, so he/shehas good control of the dog; making the dog stay without following the owner and overall obedience. Advanced classes are held on the same night at the same time. Two instructors, who are also judges, will visit the advanced classes. Other beginners courses will be run during the year. Contact Diane Ziebell 39 3358 to register for the first 1989 course.

Good supplies of Natural, Grass-fed YEARLING BEEF Tom & Kitty Cat decided to see out the Summer with a cheap surfing holiday & went to Yeppoon Travel Agency in Savemore for advice on where to go and how much it would cost...

SHIRE chairman Cr John Bowen this week said he was playing politics to improve Coast beaches. He said it was perceptive of Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton to say he was playing politics regarding the disastrous situation of the beaches in Central Queensland. "Why not? It is far better than playing King Canute at the expense of our future," Cr Bowen said. "Yes, I do intend to play politics. I feel there should be a lot more public debate about the plight of the only beaches that Central Queensland has." He said the present funding arrangements for the protection of beaches through the State Government was a sham. "To expect a small group of ratepayers on the Capricorn Coast to fund millions of dollars that arc necessary to put our beaches in order is ridiculous to say the least. "I am not saying that under the present rule Mr Hinton is not doingall he can to assist us. Nothing could be further from the truth but what I am saying is that the system of funding that is in operation is not workable and therefore, it would be misleading of me to say to our ratepayers that we are doing the right thing. "To do the right thing is not that difficult to achieve." He said the Beach Protection Authority, under Harbours and Marine, together with the Livingstone Shire Council and the Beach Restoration officers stationed on the coast, have accumulated and assessed, over many years, much of the information needed to do the right thing. "The problem lies with the politicians. "Whenever a job is too hard, the tendency for politicians is to pass the parcel to Local Government. "This has become a well known "norm" in our society. Well, in this particular instance, I intend to pass the parcel back as this parcel has a very short fuse indeed. "It is better for me to say right now that with all the Local Government goodwill, we simply cannot pay 75 per cent of the money that is necessary to protect a natural asset for the benefit.of all Australia," Cr Bowen said.

"Having said that, I am prepared, with MI Hinton, to turn this system around. "Firstly, I would like Mr Hinton to agree publicly, with the statement I have just made. "Secondly, I would like to hear from ALP Broadsound candidate Jim Pearce. "Thirdly, I would like Member for Capricornia Keith Wright to state whether it would be a responsibility of the three levels of government or whether he would prefer to talk about his Regionalisation Plan. "Is thisyet another scheme whereby he, as the Federal Member, does not have to face up to his responsibilities?" Cr Bowen said Livingstone Shire has shown its goodwill in trying to address this problem for more than 10 years. "We have erected fencing, walkways, dune protection, rock walls and groynes ... all at our ratepayers expense, plus a few feeble dollars from the State Government. "We are more than willing to continue and even add more funds to this work. "But what is the use when the total effect of these efforts would come to nothing if the Capricorn Coast was to suffer a cyclone tomorrow? "What are needed are strong individual politicians who can recognise the truth when they see it, and agree that the only way we are going to achieve "doing the right thing" is by putting together a funding programme from all three levels of responsibility for which we are all liable. "I would like to hear some straight talk on this. matter from Messrs Wright, Hinton and Pearce. "It is said that actions speak louder than words. To date, the only action has been from the Livingstone Shire, in conjunction with the Beach Protection Authority. "Let us see what further action can be instigated by these three wise men. I use the word `wise' in the context of being political as my dictionary defines 'political' as 'prudent, wise and shrewd.' "If Mr Hinton perceives John Bowen as "playing politics," I assume he means we are about to makewise decisionswhich is not a bad idea."

MLA prepared to mount special case for Coast erosion control • CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 "These problems are best handled at local level where the information and appreciation of the problems are the greatest." Mr Hinton said the State Government plays a major role in assisting Local Government with financial assistance to 25 per cent of costs incurred. "I am prepared to mount a case for greater assistance for the Capricorn Coast if the council seeks such aid," he said. "Last year I raised the issue with council, particularly in relation to Yeppoon Main Beach which is a disgrace to a tourist town and inappropriate to the needs of its citizens. "I offered assistance to the Shire to get detailed estimates and plans for beach restoration drawn up by the Beach Protection Authority. "And I expressed mv concern that the rock wall is causing excessive erosion to the point where the beach is frequently totally under water. There is never any dry sand on which to lay a towel, put up a beach umbrella and the situation continues to deteriorate. "On Wednesday, May 10, 1988 Livingstone Shire Council responded to my advices and requested the offered plans and estimates. "These plans and estimates were supplied by Water Resources, Harbours and Marine Minister Don Neal and included the construction of a 200 metre groyne to be built just north of Ross Creek at an estimated cost of S375,000 or a 100 metre groyne at S155,000. "A groyne will attract sand accretion to the beach with obviously the longer groyne being more effective. "A beach nourishment programme costing about S8 per cubic metre of sand if pumped from off shore could speed up the restoration work.

Tom, if you're looking for a great holiday that won't cost you the earth how about five nights at Coolangatta from just $255, which includes airfares and accommodation? IYes Kitty, the fare is based on booking 30 days in advancewhich means you have time to make plans and save some extra 13, We spending / money! 111111(.0

On Friday, July 21, council wrote to Mr Hinton stating that the programme "is of high priority and council is prepared to consider a joint submission for special Government assistance to undertake groyne construction along with beach restoration". "Obviously it is a budgetry matter for council and must be considered against other budgetry considerations, but I am keen to assist the council if it decides on this type of action," Mr Hinton said. "I am also prepared to support a special case to State Cabinet with council co-operation. "I am dismayed at the beach erosion at Yeppoon, at Kinka where the Scenic Highway _ is threatened and at Keppel Sands where Schofield Parade stands threatened. "Any programme to redress the sand losses will be strongly backed by the State Government," he said. "I have requested Keith Wright to come forward, meet me on the beach and compare contributions which must be firm commitments by our respective Governments to assist the Livingstone Shire Council with its beach erosion problems."

A S4.2 million residential development has started in Elma Street, Cooee Bay. Cooee Palms is being built by the Cooee Bay based company Kirkcudbright Pty Ktd. Company chairman Andrew McClelland said this week the 14 unit stage one was well on its way and stage two would go ahead before the end of the financial year. The first 14 units, in duplex form, should be completed by the end of February or early March. "Interest is being shown by locals as well as Rockhampton, country and interstate people," Mr McClelland said. Each unit consists of a lounge, dining, kitchen, two bedrooms, bathroom, laundry, carport and garden area. All units will be sold with carpets already laid. "Other amenities like letter boxes, telephone, television sockets and wheelie bins would be provided. "The building work under the management of

Tom Warnock would guarantee top quality construction. "Tom has had large site construction experience. He has just completed Lammermoor Beach L'Amor and was involved in the building of Bayview Tower, Riverside International and the Cambridge Hotel," he said. "Extensive market research in the area resulted in this type of group titling arrangement being the chosen type of development for the site." Each owner owns their home and the immediate curtilage and has a share in the common land and gardens and will pay into a body corporate for insurance, cleaning and maintenance of the area, and for the upkeep of the gardens and landscaping. Mr McClelland said the project was ideal for elderly people who did not want the responsibilities of maintaining gardens, but still wanted a control over the immediate environment in which they lived.

6 - Capricorn Coast Mirror January 27 - February 2, 1989 • LETTERS TO THE EDITOR ON QUALITY OF LIFE, EROSION AND SAND MINING - HAVE YOU HAD YOUR SAY? •

A global problem... AS a recent arrival and resident of Yeppoon I would like to take the opportunity to congratulateyou on the articles on erosion, and the council budget which appeared in your issue 284 of January 26, 1989. As you are probably aware, coastal erosion is a global problem and there are no short term solutions. Careful study is required of sediment transport, littoral drift and coastal current circulation, together with a programme for stabilisation of the dunes by revegetation and limiting access routes and I agree with most of Mr Fee's Comments. I hope that both the State and Federal governments can be persuaded to fund an in-depth analysis of coastal erosion in Queensland before our coastal regions arc irreparably damaged. With regard to the council budget, I must agree that, generally, the taxpayer does take the council's services for granted. In view of the recent infestation by jellyfish I do support your proposal of a rock pool which

Doubts on mining IT IS time we analysed this sandmining proposal for ourselves. We have seen the kind of sensational headlines about a so called 'boom for the community' before. How can we make certain the Pivot Group is not another 'Iwasaki let-down' or 'woodchip marketing disaster'? Residents of Central Queensland tieed some safeguards to ensure their valuable natural resources are not plundered without return to the community or consideration for the environment. The proposed mining leases are within an area of National Estate, designated for natural, scientific, historical and cultural resources. After visitina the area, it was evident the c' Army has carefully maintained it in a near natural condition. The region is untouched by industry or modern development. A magnificent area scenically, it is the source of Yeppoon'swater supply, an important scientific reference area and the ideal reserve for Defence Force training. We must weigh up these factors against the kinds of possible benefits and losses sandmining may bring. The draft environmental impact statement presented by Pivot claims "existing infrastructure is capable of meeting the projected demands of the project". Does this mean they will not be paying for the roads they use? Thirty-five ore trucks weighing 25 tonne will be travelling from Byfield to Yeppoon. twice a

day, plus service vehicleit-fuel trucks and personnel vehicles. Who is going to pay for the immense damage to our roads? What about the extra danger to • other road users? Will our tourists enjoy battling with ore trucks on visits to Byfield National Park or State Forest Parks? Before Central Queenslanders allow their assets to be damaged, firm assurances need to be given as to where the responsibility for the costs lies. The company has given no guarantees about the number of jobs it will provide or t he kind of 'follow-on' its operations will produce. They only state what might be "expected" or what may be "possible". The suggested 10 to 15 years of mining may only be five if "hopes" for large reserves are not actualized. The optimistic politicians who announced this project have a responsibility to produce some 'iron-clad' guarantees that it will provide many jobs and money within the community, without cost to the ratepayers, pollution of the town water supply, destruction of roads or declines in tourism. So, Mr Hinton and Mr Wright, do not lead us into sacrificing our resources to another 'big talking but largely unprofitable company. Locals want some definite answers about benefits to Central Queensland, not vague ideas like extra sand on the beach. - Leise Childs. MS 142, Byfield 4703.

LSC green scheme YOUR article in last week's Capricorn Coast Mirror was most timely and ratepayers' responses to tree planting, beautification, development of parks, sporting and library facilities will be most gratefully received by the Recreation, Parks and Sports Advisory Committee for 1989/90 budget planning. We have to plan realistically for expenditures which give improvement and benefit that is justified and needed by the community andwill not burden ratepayers too much. With co-operation from residents and organisations providing some voluntary help and donations, the scope of each year's improvements can be expanded considerably. Livingstone Shire Council has adopted a green scheme recommended by the committee for tree planting in urban streets, beautification of entrances to towns and housing estates. This was launched with an Arbor Day tree plantina program in every community in the shire int'September, 1988. But we need thousands of trees to be planted to make a show of the shire and people to care for them during the vital first few years of growth. If we get going with public support, our streets, parks and recreation areas can become beautiful and shady places. Numerous community groups have sat in committee meetings to discuss and pass on their requests during this term. This has resulted in tree planting at Keppel Sands, Emu Park, Yeppoon, the development of Bicentennial Park at Emu Park, 2000 metres of free carting by Ga ry Anderson and Yeppoon Ready Mix to assist council's current budget for top dressing football and soccer grounds as Apex Park and Tanby Road, help for the first

public turf cricket wicket in Yeppoon Showground, Yeppoon Lions and Lionesses installation of a barbecue and bridge at Lammermoor Beach and Scope Club's donation towards new playground equipment for Beaman Park. Council assistance has been offered to clear a BMX track at Ogmore. at Yaamba a vigorous progress association is achieving the establishment of a park and rest area on the highway, Malborough and Emu Park are well on the way to getting swimming pools, a young people's committeetin Yeppoon is on the way to having a skatepark with the help of the council and community donations. A council programme for installation of '-us shelters and seats along the Coast is about to start under contract with a national company. On the drawing board for 1989/90 is the establishment of a new park on Barlows Hill, facilities, garden and tree planting for Appleton Park, areas leading to the new information centre and Anderson Park, Lammermoor Native Garden and more tree planting and beautification for all towns and streets in the shire. The Caves won a tidy town award in 1988. The council is promoting public support for council's endeavours to upgrade Ogmore, Marlborough, Yaamba, Yeppoon, Emu Park, Keppel Sands in the 1989 Tidy Towns Competition. With guidance from the council's librarian, the committee is looking into a new larger library premise and upgrading options in branch libraries in the shire to cope with the rapidly increasing readership and needs of our growina communities. - (Cr)pBrian Dorey, Scenic Highway, Cooee Bay, 4703.

Upgrading idea I WOULD like to see funds made available for the up-grading of a section of Selvey Street, between Atherton and Vaughan Streets. This section of roadway requires spoon drains on the northern side and needs the road recapping with bitumer At present the,c are dirt shoulders on the northern side which get gouged out in heavy rain and stones and large rocks are washed onto the bitumen which in turn helps to breakup the bitumen seal when vehicles pass over them. The bitumen in this section of load is dotted with bitumen patches from council maintenance work on water retriculation. Bitumen is also missing in patches, leaving foundation gravel showing. This has been caused from rocks on the roadway andvehicular movement over these rocks breaking out bitumen pieces. With spoon drains and new full width bitumen seal it would help to widen Selvey Street. As it is now, if you have two cars parked opposite each other they restrict traffic flows. Also with the stones on the roadway it becomes a health hazard as well. The stones fly off car tyres and could injure bystanders and not to mention smashing house windows (been there, had that done twice). - N W H Timms, 30 Selvey Street, Yeppoon. 4703.

Active retired folk now known as Citizens of the Third Age... SOCIETY has a new label for its retired ... citizens of the third age. The 'first age' represents childhood and adolescence; 'second age' is a person!sworking life (employment, home-making, rearing chitdren); 'third age', active retirement; the 'fourth age' is dependence and (sometimes) senility. The new label for retired people takes away some of the negative labels attached to older people. Retirement should be a long, active, stimulating and stable period in a person's life. Present trends show people are retiring at a younger age. They move to an area that suits their needs or remain where they, feel comfortable. When they have their home or garden how they want it, 'third age' people look for something else to occupy them. Many don't want to be ;involved' in more physical activity than they were previously used to. They aren't interested in handcraft work and don't want to belong to a particular interest group. More importantly, they don't want to just exist. They feel there must be more they can get out of life ... an active retirement. Third age people have the time and expertise to organise beneficial learning activities for themselves. There are many active retirees who have genuine learning needs. J A McDonell from Monash University's Centre for Continuing Education said mental stimulus and activity is, like physical activity, one of the keys to delaying or even avoiding the 'fourth age'. "Most of us need some starters to help us keep our physical and mental machinery in good running order," he said. "It can even be argued that maintenance of mental activity is cost-beneficial to the community by reducing the average length of the 'fourth age' and hence the costs of health services." There is a vast pool of resources and skills in the 'third age' people. "It's foolish of us not to tap those resources for the benefit of the whole community." From the acknowledgement of those resources came the concept of a University of the Third Age. It is a group of 'third age' people who have the time and expertise to organise mutually beneficial learning activities for themselves. "This has so much in common with one of the original concepts of a university, as a commupity of scholars, that the title 'university' for such an organisation seems entirely appropriate." The movement started in association with the University of Toulouse, France in 1973. It has since spread to the United Kingdom and Europe and now Australia. What does a University of the Third Age provide?

Everything its members want and are capable of providing. Many concentrate on using their internal resources, with people alternating between the roles of student and tutor. Others have large access programmes, which enable their members to join university classes of their choice without enrolling for established courses. Still others rely on low-cost or voluntary contributions by outside experts. Many provide a range of different programmes within the one organisation. The common guiding principle is activity, organised in response to its members' interests. "In many ways this is a notable departure from the way our community normally approaches the task of educational provision," Mr McDonell said. "We usually set up institutions which design programmes for students who are not themselves involved in the planning processes." University of the Third Age is for people who want to keep their minds active and they have the resources to organise the programmes themselves.

...Coast talks on University idea CAPRICORN Coast residents are invited to a meeting in Livingstone Shire Council chambers on uesday, February 21 at 10am to gauge interest in forming a University of the Third Age. Individuals, as well as representatives from organisations are invited to the meeting. Information is available from Queensland Council on the Ageing central region liaison officer Nell Stanaway, 27 6015, during office hours. Do not contact the Livingstone Shire Council chambers, information is available only through Nell Stanaway, 27 6015. The Queensland Council on the Ageing is affiliated with the Australian Council on the Ageing which brought the concept to Australia. University of the Third Age is one of the Australian council's main objectives. Central Queensland's University of the Third Age is based in Rockhampton and supported by the Queensland Recreation Council, Community Health, TAFE and CIAE. Members of the Rockhampton group. Nell Stanaway and guest speakers will explain how Coast residents can form a University of the Third Age and how it will be of benefit to the community. If a group is formed on the Coast it will be under the auspices of the Rockhampton group until it is able to operate on its Own. Shire chairman Cr John Bowen will chair the meeting.

Lex Semple, Lo rraine Coombs and Ian Hill win shire's awards THREE Livingstone Shire residents received 1989 Australia Day awards yesterday in a ceremony at Livingstone Shire Council. Shire chairman Cr John Bowen presented the citizen award to Lex Semple of Yeppoon and sports medallions to Lorraine Coombs (Yeppoon) and Ian Hill of Milman The awards are sponsored by the shire through the Australia Day Council, Queensland. Cr Bowen thanked everyone who contributed and sent letters nominating people they felt would be suitable recipients of the awards. "If your choice didn't receive an award, that doesn't mean they weren't worthy, just that someone else had more claim at the particular time. Nominate your choice again for next year's awards," Cr Bowen said He told the group of people gathered for the awards and previous naturalisation ceremonies that Australia Day awards are important because people who work for the community receive the accolades they wouldn't normally receive. "These people usually work in the background helping people and don't want or expect thanks. They work for the community as individuals or in groups because they feel they have something to offer or because they see a need. "It is a pity more people can't be given awards for the work they do ... that's why the Australia ( Nay Awards are so important. '--'`They represent the spirit of Australians. The spirit of having a go and caring for their fellow man without public acclamation." Cr Bowen congratulated the three recipients on behalf of the council and shire residents and gave resumes on each of the recipients. The citizen's award recognises an outstanding contribution to the local community. Lex Semple has devoted his life to the Capricorn Coast community with a special interest in - the children and teenagers. He is the Coast's Father Christmas ... travelling from 6am until well into the night on the Sunday before Christmas. He drives a specially decorated station wagon, complete with sleigh, Father Christmas and beautiful helpers (usually including one of his daughters). Community groups supply him with lollies to throw to children along the coastal strip. Quite often the money doesn't stretch and he digs into his pockets to supply more sweets. Lex doesn't want any children to miss out. It is a tradition Lex has continued for 18 years without .a break. There are parents who remember waiting patiently on the side of the road for Father Christmas and now their children wait. The important part about his Christmas role is that he keeps alive the "Christmas" mystique. His Father Christmases must be people who relate to children. Lex spent his off-duty hours working with teenagers and younger children at the skating centre. He has arranged skate-a-thons for charity ... with the children. Every care is taken to make sure the participants are looked after during these marathons. Sometimes he also takes, , \—t here are charities all over the Coast as well as outside foundations that have gained from Lex's work ... and the important, thing is that the children have enjoyed the experience. There are adults, who as children, remember with pleasure the hours spent with Lex learning to skate and listening to talks on behaviour and his special homilies. They didn't object to the talks and the Coast has reason to be appreciative of Lex's work with the young people of this district. Lex spent the majority of his working life with the Yeppoon Fire Brigade ... and he included after hours in that job, when he wasn't at the skating rink. You couldn't count the number of children who had guided tours around the fire station ...

TS FEBRUARY 6 All necessary textbooks are provided on loan to the students and a uniform is also provided. Further information is available from Paula Mason at the North Rockhampton CES, 27 9355, or course co-ordinator Leone Hinton, 27 6263.



who have had simple talks on how the fire brigade works and been thrilled with Lex's displays. He has a restored 1926 Bean fire engine ... complete sets of uniforms and old fire-fighting equipment. So he can continue with teaching the young and old about the realities of fire-fighting Lex is hoping to have a museum at his home for everyone to look at his vast collection. Cr Bowen then said Lex Semple was an ideal person to receive the Australia Day Citizen's Award ... he epitomises the spirit and future of Australia. The sports medallion was presented to Lorraine Coombs because she had made a significant contribution to sport as a cepach, official and administrator. Cr Bowen said Mrs Coombs had been a driving force in Yeppoon Little Athletics helping hundreds of Coast youngsters exercise their bodies and minds. She and other parents in the group have worked to give Coast children another string to their bow. It isn't possible to present this Australia Day award to all the people in the group and Lorraine, representing them and the children, is an ideal choice. She approaches business houses and individuals for trophies for the children as well as coaching, working on the committee and helping organise meets. Her children are examples of her dedication. Her son, Darren, received an Australia Day award a fewyears ago for his sporting expertise. And there are many other children who have benefitted from Lorraine's caring attitude towards junior sport. Her interest isn't just in Little Athletics ... Lorraine is nowworking for a skateboard facility for Coast children. Cr Bowen presented Ian Hill of Milman with the sports medallion for a person under 18 years of age who has made a noteworthy record of achievement in sport. Ian's chosen sport is shot put and he has represented Milman Primary School and the CQ district two years running (1987 and 1988) in that sport. He is 13, lives at Milman and took up shotput two years ago. Ian won the right to compete at the CQ Zone titles in Bileola in 1988 and won the shotput with a record-breaking throw of 17.02 metres (the record was made by previous sports award winner Darren Coombs). This entitled him to represent Central Queensland at the State titles in October, 1988. He won gold with a throw of 15.36 metres ... less than his qualifying one at Bileola. This shows Ian's future potential in shot put. He hopes to include javelin and discus in his future sporting accomplishments. Ian also plays tennis, cricket and whatever is in season ... he is an all-rounder and has the ability to match. Cr Bowen again congratulated the three residents on the awards and said he felt Livingstone Shire had much to offer in all spheres of community service and sport.

BUS RESTRICTIONS REMOVED Ageing veterans, war widows to get more personalised service TOURISM on the Capricorn Coast could be boosted by the lifting of State Government franchise restrictions to allow through coach traffic to bring tourists to the Capricorn Coast. Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton has successfully negotiat ed with the Commissioner of Transport, Mr N Kent, for the removal of franchise restrictions which have prevented coach operators such as Greyhound, McCaffertys and others from utilising the Coast. "Coast companies are now free to apply for the run and any applications will be approved," Mr Hinton said. "It is up to Coast tourism industries to provide the incentive neccessary to attract the coach traffic. "The new arrangements should suit the backpackers traffic in particular, and boost tourism numbers including visitors staying in Yeppoon, and visitors to Great Keppel Island." He said the new provisions will not significantly disadvantage the present local bus operators which will remain the only service between Rockhampton and Yeppoon. "Bus passengers on the large coaches will be through tourist traffic," he said.

SERVICES for ageing veterans and war widows will become more personalised and accessible following an outreach review which has begun in the Department of Veterans' Affairs. A nnouncing the project, Minister for Veterans' Affairs, Ben Humphreys said the department wanted to ensure that elderly veterans and war widows were aware of the range of assistance and benefits available to them from the department and other community sources. "Help for all the department's clients must also be made more accesible," he said. "We have a good record, but want to improve the way our services are delivered, particularly as client populations grow older. "The average age of veterans is 64 and close to 72 per cent of clients entitled to medical and other treatment are 65 years or older. "War widows have an average age of 71. By the year 2000, 66 per cent of clients entitled to treatment will be 75 or older," Mr Humphreys said. "Meeting the needs of these ageing people is our biggest challenge. We have recently released our corporate plan which sets the scene for the department's activities over the next few years. "I have also announced a major review of health care for Veterans' Affairs clients. The outreach project evaluation follows from the corporate planning process and will complement the health care review. "I encourage all interested individuals and organisations to make submissions to the project team." The Department of Veterans' Affair (DVA) Corporate Plan highlighted the ageing of Australia's veterans, their changing needs and the problem older people can experience in dealing with bureaucracies. _ The corporate plan commits the department to making its services more accessible and personalised, without any increase in administrative costs. This evaluation will assist management to decide how to meet the commitment and will: examine and report on: 1 Needs for DVA!s current services to be made more accessible, or otherwise adapted to meet changing circumstances,. taking account of clients: (a) age and disability profile; (b) location and mobility; (c) awareness and entitlements; (d) capacity to meet the administrative procedures surrounding DVA's current service. 2 Options for meeting any established needs, in particular in the area of: (a) information and advice provided to clients and potential clients about their entitlements; (b) client contact activities in branch and regional offices including the Veterans' Entitlements Act Monitoring Committee's proposal for a claims advisory service; (c) the location within States of branch and regional offices and other services provided to clients; (d) country visits programmes. Options are to be developed taking account of: the experience of other Australian and overseas agencies in dealing with aged clients; existing DVA infrastructure including accommodation commitments and ability to redesign or relocate offices; directions arising from the Health Program Review; available technology; the need to contain the cost of changes within existing resource allocations. The evaluation will draw on: DVA data generated internally; data already held by DVA on the experience of other agencies; existing data on functional disability among the aged; DVA clients surveys, including the recent South Australian branch survey, the planned surveys for the Health Program Review, intended survey of clients at the NSW Branch office and the

1983 Scott consultancy report on DVA Public Information Programmes; consultation with major ex-service and related organisations, staff associations and individual staff members. A preliminary report will be presented in March 1989 and a summary will be made available to ex-service and related organisations, to staff associations and to DVA staff. A final report is to be provided to the Minister by June, 30. Resources for the evaluation will be provided from within the department's current resources. The evaluation will be oversighted by the Outreach Project Steering Committee, comprised of DVA, Department of Finance and a representative of staff associations. The Outreach Project Steering Committee will also oversight implementation of measures to make services more accessible. Submissions should be sent, before the end ofi February, to: The Outreach Project, Department of Veterans' Affairs, PO Box 21, Woden, ACT. 2606.

Police station a hot, cramped, inadequate dog box - Hinton THE new Police and Emergency Services Minister Russell Cooper has been invited by Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton to visit and inspect Yeppoon Police Station. Mr Hinton last week inspected Yeppoon Police Station with officer-in-charge Sergeant 1/c Ken Tanzer and later described the facility as being "a hot cramped and inadequate dog box." "Our police in Yeppoon do an excellent job but are working in conditions which inhibit efficiency," Mr Hinton said. "The district is extremely fortunate to have personnel of the high calibre of the present resident officers. "One room houses five policemen, there is inadequate privacy for interviews, the public counter is too small, there is no air conditioning and it is a situation that must be rectified." Mr Hinton said the Yeppoon force is undermanned and with an increasing crime rate (342 reported cases in 1984-85 as against 510 in 1986-87) the need for more man power is urgent. He said he had provided a detailed submission to Mr Cooper with a nett request for two additional officers. "One officer at Sergeant second class level to assist the CI branch with the Detective Senior Constable, and one additional constable for routine duties. "This additional man is particularly important when other officers are on leave. "The recent spate of break-ins and som' loutish behaviour on the streets, following tf. closure of licenced premises, emphasised the need for the upgrade in both personnel and facilities," he said. "We have an excellent policeforce in Yeppoon and there is only so much they can do: No man can work 24 hours per day. "We need a major upgrade on both fronts and I will be endeavouring to get an early inspection by Mr Cooper so he can have 'hands on experience' as far as the Capricorn Coast situation is concerned."

COUNCIL TO TAKE ANY MONEY IT CAN GET FOR BYFIELD ROADS LIVINGSTONE Shire Council "will take any money for Byfield roads" Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton can get. Thiswas how Cr Key Hinz neatly summed up a debate over a letter from Mr Hinton seeking council's support for bitumen surfacing road' s

within Byfield itself. Mr Hinton told council the 5250,000 road straightening project past Farnborough School was scheduled to be completed by June this year. He sought support for the next project which he suggested should be scaling roads from Byfield Creek to Polka Creek, about 2.5km. "This are would service the closer subdivisions within the Bvfield area, including the school, and be 'bet ter value' than just adding an additional section to the end of the present bitumen," Mr Hinton said. He asked council, if it supported this view, to

write to the Main Roads Department. Shire chairman Cr John Bowen said people at Byfield wanted roads within the township sealed but there was an alternative view which was to provide an all-weather road to Byfield. Cr Brian Dorey said council should not beknocking back Mr Hinton's offer. "I have to go for this," he said. "There are 180 people there and I don't think it's a bad idea to give them roads in town. This year, I'll plug for that." Shire engineer Pat Murphy said the Farnborough Road bend straightening was spread over two years, not one as suggested by Mr Hinton,

andwork wasn't due to start until May thisyear. As an idea of how much sealing cost, he said 750 metres of sealed road would cost S300,000. He was concerned about having sealed roads in Byfield but not being able to get to the area. Cr Ellen Cogill considered it was "a bit much to lump it onus. Do we have to make a decision now'" Cr Hinz said adding more sealing to the existing sealed section would not be noticed. "We should support getting 2.5km provided Mr Hinton can come up with the finance through the State Government. We will take any money he can get for us."

During the week, club trophies were won by: Tuesday, Basil Buttsworth, Pearl Curry, Phil Cosgrove; Saturday, Pearl Curry, Col Rose. On Friday, January 20, coach Ray Fitzgerald gave members hints on bowling technique and sorted out a few problems. "On Monday, Col Smith and his assistants, Roy Johnson, Bob Maud, Lew Tickner, Brian Heath, Chick Stanley, Alan Price and Eddie Mann, did a great job in beautifying the club grounds," publicity officer Marg Price said.

This has now also been transferred to the high school oval for Saturday (tomorrow) and Saturday, February 4 from 1.30pm to 4pm.

Ike, Klima COAST parents took their teenage kids to Melbourne for a holiday and came back this week reporting "the different lifestyle" ... and weren't happy about it. Seems the Coast kids were taken on a drive to see the sights of Melbourne by teenage relatives. As the car, with four teenagers in it, cruised by an intersection, the Coast pair saw two policemen standing on the kerb just a metre or so away. Being well brought up and naturally friendly, the Coast kids waved to the police and said "hi!" They were shocked at the result. The police shouted for the car to pull over and gave the four kids the third degree along the lines of "Whose car is this? Where are you from?" They were then told to leave the area and not to come back! There was an added incentive to leave along the lines of "if we see your car back here we'll put it off the road and you'll never get it back". Needless to say, they went home to tell their story! •• • SO, the kids get back to the Melbourne home where they're staying and tell their story ... and the Melbourne side of the family is amazed. They're not amazed at what happened ... they're amazed that the Coast kids had said "hi!" to the police in the first place. "You just don't do that," they told the kids. Coast parents, hearing this, countered by describing life in Queensland and how their kids have been brought up to respect police and go to them if they need anything. Melbourne parents were unimpressed until Coast parents 'told them there had been a "Kiss-a-Cop" campaign in Queensland. That certainly explained the difference in lifestyle!!!

Junior Australian Rules players need coaches; sign-on Sunday COACHES are needed for Yeppoon Australian Rules Football Club's junior players. The A grade and reserve sides have coaches ... Steve Burns and Mike Wozniak, but no-one hasvolunteered to coach the under 11, 13, 15 or 17 teams. Organisers are disappointed about the lack of junior coaches. "Our juniors have done extremely well over the years," publicity officer Yvonne Motton said. "In 1988 two junior sides were premiers and another was runner up ... not a bad result from four teams entered in the junior competition. "It is disheartening when the boys have done so well not to have anyone to coa.:h them in 1989. "We have all worked hard over the years. This year may sec the new oval ready and we are hoping to have a clubhouse. "But if we don't have players coming up through the ranks there isn't any reason to provide all these facilities," she said. "I don't mean to sound so pessimistic, but we are really disappointed.

Father, (being a father) was gripping the door handle and stabbing his foot on the imaginary ;brake every time a car came toward them. The father (still being father) cast nervous glances at the speedo every time he got the chance without trying to appear as if that's what he was doing (it was a trick he learned when his wife was first licensed ... but she stopped the car one night in the middle of the Causeway, told him to drive himself, and stalked off in opposite direction). Anyway, son noticed father's glances at speedo and told him there was nothing to worry about, the speedo was accurate to within 11cm/h. Father was puzzled about this because he couldn't figure how son could afford the cost of a proper check. Son enlightened him ... "I went through a radar trap last week and stopped to ask the policeman if he would check my speedo. He told me to drive toward him at 60km/h. After I stopped the second time, he told me I'd registered 59km/h on the radar gun." Father was amazed: "What do you mean? Were you pulled over by the police, or what?" Son replied that he hadn't been pulled over and, in fact, the police had said they hadn't stopped him and asked him why he had pulled over. Father, hearing this, couldn't stop a wide smile crossing his face. He relaxed in the passenger's seat and kept chuckling to himself all the way home. Son honestly couldn't understand why father was smiling. You know, with kids like that, backed up by friendly police, Queensland has a great future!!! •• • MORE on Coast couple's Melbourne trip ... husband walked into a Sunbury newsagency, bought a paper, passed across money and, as he received change, smiled, said '`thank-you" and something like "have a nice day" or "lovely day, isn't it?" Woman behind counter looked up and said: "You must be from Queensland!" Surely we're not the only Australians who have a pleasant outlook ... or are we the only people who have something to smile about? • • • SUZY phones bloke this week for some information and his wife answers the phone. She says her husband is in the shower and if Suzy would like to wait, she'll go and get him. Suzy, not wanting to disturb the bloke in the shower and thinking his wife has already put down phone, shouts into phone: "No, don't do that." Woman, who hadn't put down phone, quickly replies: "Why not? I've seen it all before!!!"

"Everyone can live in any spot on the terrestrial globe. Therefore all the world is man's birthplace. These boundaries and outlets have been devised by Every limited area which we call our native country we regard as our man mother-land, whereas the terrestrial globe is the mother-land of all, and not any restricted area." ** "The scientific and technological advances occurring in this unusually blessed century portend a great surge forward in the social evolution of the planet, and indicate the means by which the practical problems of humanity may be solved.They provide indeed, the very means for the administration of the complex life of a united world.Yet barriers persist. Doubts, misconceptions, prejudices, suspicions and narrow self-interest beset nations and peoples in their relations one to another.'." * "In many regions of the world, the assault on rain forests and endangered species comes as the poor, legitimately seeking a fair share of the worlds' wealth, fell trees to create fields. They are unaware that, over the long term and as members of a world community which they know little about, they may be damaging rather than improving their children's chances for a better life. Any attempt to protect nature, must, therefore, also address the fundamental inequities between the world's rich and poor." * "Material civilization has reached an advanced plane but now there is need of spiritual civilization. Material civilization alone will not satisfy; it cannot meet the conditions and requirements of the present age." ** "The well-being of mankind its peace and security are unattainable unless and until its unity is firmly established. The earth is but one country, and mankind its citizens." ** "The major issues facing the environmental movement hinge on this point. The problems of ocean pollution, the extinction of species, acid rain and deforestation not to mention the ultimate scourge of nuclear war respect no boundaries. All require a transnational approach." *


"People are craving for love, for a high standard to look up to, as well as for solutions to their many grave problems." * "It should be born in mind that all consultation is aimed at a solution to a " * problem "Consultation bestows greater awareness and transmutes conjecture into certitude. It is a shining light which, in a dark world, leads the way and guides. For everything there is and will continue to be a station of perfection and maturity The maturity of the gift of understanding is made manifest through consultation." ** "We must always look ahead and seek to accomplish in the future what we may have failed to do in the past. Failures, tests and trials, if we use them correctly, can become the means of purifying our spirits, strengthening our characters, and enable us to rise to greater heights..." * "We cannot segregate the human heart from the environment outside us and say that once one of these is reformed everything will be improved. Man is organic with the world. His inner life moulds the environment and is itself also deeply affected by it. The one acts upon the other and every abiding change in the life of man is the result of these mutual reactions." * "RESPOND PERSONALLY"

"Look not upon the creatures of God except with the eye of kindliness and of mercy, for Our loving providence hath pervaded all created things, and Our grace encompasses the earth and the heavens.' ** "Liken the world of existence to the temple of man. All the organs of the human body assist one another, therefore life continues... Likewise among the parts of existence there is a wonderful connection and interchange of forces which is the cause of life of the world and the continuation of these countless phenomena." ** "Unless ye must, bruise not the serpent in the dust. How much less wound a man. And if ye can, no ant should ye alarm much less a brother harm." **

"This dichotomy between spirituality and materialism is a key to understanding the plight of humankind today. In the Baha'i view, the major threats to our world environment are manifestations of a world-encompassing sickness of the human spirit, a sickness that is marked by an overemphasis on material things and a self centredness that inhibits our ability to work together as a global community. The Baha'i Faith seeks above all else to revitalise the human spirit and break down the barriers that limit fruitful and harmonious cooperation among men and women, whatever their national, racial or religious background." * "For Baha'is the goal of existence is to carry forward an ever-advancing civilization. Such a civilization can only be built on an earth that can sustain itself. The Baha'i commitment to the environment is fundamental to our Faith." * Baha'i Writings. ** Baha'i Sacred Writings VIDEO NIGHT ON THE BAHA'I FAITH C.W.A.
