Honesty on show at police station COAST residents and visitors are honest ... wallets still containing their contents, keys and glasses have been handed into Yeppoon Police Station. Police officer-in-charge Sergeant 1/c Ken Tanzer said the wallets, glasses and keys had been handed in to the station and were available for collection by their owners. "We also have three bicycles ... a man's 10 speed, BMX and a lady's," Sgt Tanzer said. "The lady's bike was found on January 6 and we presume it was one of the three (two have been claimed) that came down from Rockhampton on the previous day." Sgt Tanzer said hopeful owners would be welcome to go to the station on Saturday mornings to claim their lost belongings. "On Saturday mornings it is easier to help people with lost belongings. We don't have licence inquiries and our staff aren't as rushed as during the week."

Chamber talks on stingers, budget STINGER netting, sign-posting, beach erosion and budget submissions will be discussed at the Capricorn Coast Chamber of Commerce and Industry's February meeting. The meeting is at 6.30pm on Tuesday, February 7 at Bayview Tower. There will be brief discussions on stinger netting and signposting for the swimming pool. President Tony Millroy said there would also be a brief discussion on beach erosion primarily to see if anyone's business'is affected by it. "We will also be making budget submissions to Livingstone Shire Council," Mr Millroy said. "Only some of our suggestions from last year were put through. So, we will review last year's submission and add this year's ideas to it. "Another subject for discussion will be about the business people who didn't maximie the Christmas/New Year week. There were too many businesses closed during that period." Mr Millroy said the chamber hopes to have a guest speaker from the Pivot Group about the sandmining venture in Shoalwater Bay. "The discussion is not about conservation. That is where the conservationists come in," he said. "We have specific questions on how the project will effect the area. "There should be guarantees on road funding and maintenance, routing of trucks and disposal of water, sand and tailings. Will the tailings be radioactive and how will the group remove it? "We are for the project from the benefits it will give the Coast but our approval is guarded. "As a chamber of commerce we are interested

and concerned about anything that affects business, the community and, overall, our way of life. "The conservation aspect worries us too, but that aspect can be overseen by the conservation people. "Everyone's welcome but it's not a conservation/environment forum," he said. "Anyone who has any questions about the sandmining proposal is welcome to attend. But emphasis is only on questions to do with industrial benefits to the Coast's business wellbeing."

Laws apply to bikes BICYCLES are vehicles and cyclists must obey the traffic laws. Yeppoon Police officer-in-charge Sergeant 1/c Ken Tanzer said this week young people didn't realise that bicycles are treated the same as motor vehicles. "It is against the law to ride a bicycle after dark without lights and they must have reflectors," he said. "Children starting school who are allowed to ride their bikes must be told the rules of the road ... and people who ride bicycles on footpaths are breaking the law. "They should be encouraged to wear approved bicycle helmets and they should be worn and fastened as the designer suggests." Sgt Tanzer also suggested skateboard riders find a safe area to use and to consider pedestrians. "Please don't ride skateboards on the road."

ANY tickets sold between now and Sunday for the Glen Rohl Benefit will be "pure gravy" because costs have been covered, Pacific Hotel publican Bill Nugent said on Wednesday night. The Glen Rohl Benefit will be held at the Pacific Hotel on Sunday (February 5) from 11 am with major prizes to be drawn around Noon. Glen Rohl, a former Pacific Hotel staff member, was burned and suffered internal injuries ast month when a fishing boat he was working on caught fire at Rosslyn Bay Harbour. Mr Nugent said Mr Rohl had been transferred to Yeppoon Hospital this week so he could be closer to his family. "We're expecting a big response to the various raffles tonight (Friday), tomorrow and on Sunday," he said. "Sales so far have given the family a lift because so many of Glen's friends have come forward to help. "Quite a few are so glad something is being done to tide over the family in its hour of need that it has not been unusual to have five $20 tickets sold at a time ... that's $100 worth of help from individuals." Mr Rohl and Dennis Murray were partners in a 9m twin-hulled aluminium fishing boat which exploded at the harbour on January 5 when they were working on it. Mr Rohl was working inside the boat when the explosion occurred. He was rushed to hospital with burns to 25 per cent of his body. Mr Nugent said all money raised at the benefit would go to the Rohl family (Glen, his wife Paula, and two children).

The major fund-raiser is a raffle with a $1000 draw and three $100 draws. Tickets are on sale at S20 each. They are available at the Pacific Hotel, from Peter Bayliss or Dennis Murray. There will be a free keg for ticket holders on the Sunday although Mr Nugest said there was no need for ticket holders to feel obliged to attend. All winners will be notified. Four other raffles will help raise money for the Rohl family by offering top prizes: • A 27mHz marine radio (value S160) donated by Vince Welsh of Cooee Bay Marine. • A S100 open fashion order donated by Kay Murray of His 'n Hers Resort Wear. • A S140 open order donated by Bill Nugent of the Pacific Hotel Liquor Barn. All ticket buyers will also eligible to bonuses of two prizes donated by GB's Hair Studio - a shampoo, blow-dry and (for the males) hair care to the value of $15. Global Seafoods has donated seafood trays which will be raffled at the Pacific Hotel tonight (Friday). Mr Nugent said other groups such as the Swans Australian Rules footballers, the Seagulls Rugby League Club and Rotary had donated proceeds of their raffles to the benefit. "I'd like to see as much raised as possible to give Glen a great homecoming," Mr Nugent said. "He's now in Yeppoon Hospital but it will be months before he's back on his feet."

Wreath idea had become political FOLLOWING discussions between the president of Yeppoon sub-branch of the RSL and Dysart sub-branch secretary Jim Pearce, ALP candidate for Broadsound, a decision was made against a wreath-laying ceremony at the. Yeppoon War Memorial on the day of Hirohito's funeral. It was agreed between the parties concerned the matter had become a political issue which could be detrimental to the RSL.

THE prospect of a sewerage scheme for the central section of Emu Park will be advanced by a Livingstone Shire Council deputation led by Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton to discuss financial opt ions with Finance Minister Brian Austin in Brisbane on February 8. "Technical details of a sewerage scheme estimated to cost about S5 million have been determined between Queensland Water Resources Commission officers and Shire engineering staff over the last six months, and at this stage it is a political decision for State Cabinet as to what financial options are available," Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton said. "Emu Park cannot afford sewerage without state government assistance because of its low rating base, and the difficult terrain to be serviced by a sewerage scheme. "I have convinced Water Resources Minister Don Neal that State Government assistance is essential, particularly in light of the hazardous health situation due to the present unsewered situation and poor soils for septic absorption. "We will be discussing several options with Mr Austin including interest-holiday loans such as those made available to the council to assist it to build a water filtration plant at Woodbury," he said. Interest holiday loans are loans that have a period of time when no interest is charged. "Other options include a special grant to keep sewerage rates at reasonable levels or deficit financing with low loan repayments in the early years. "I will not prejudge the outcome but am confident of achieving significent financial assistance for the council." The council deputation consists of chairman Cr John Bowen, deputy chairman Cr Brian Dorey and engineer Pat Murphy.

CAPRICORN Coast ALP branch president David Timbs said he welcomed ALP candidate for Broadsound Jim Pearce's decision to not lay a wreath on Yeppoon's cenotaph. "I am glad the air has now been cleared and there is to be no bad blood between ourselves and the RSL," he said. "Mr Pearce can get on with the campaign to win the seat of Broadsound for the ALP from the National Party. •"This was just a minor hiccough and should now be forgotten." Mr Timbs said the branch had last month written to Mr Pearce advising it did not support the ceremony to have been conducted on the day of Emperor Hirohito's funeral. "The branch asked him to advise the RSL that he had changed his mind:" Mr Timbs said their candidate had a great opportunity to win. "Denis Hinton will be swept out in the wave of opposition which is mounting against the National Party."

Minister here February 24 FAMILY Services Minister Craig Sherrin will visit Yeppoon on Friday, February 24 at the invitation of Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton and will meet community organisation representatives. "I am inviting Mr Sherrin in order to obtain a shire community development worker who would be state funded and operate from sthe Livingstone Shire Council," Mr Hinton said: "I will be attempting to demonstrate to Mr Sherrin that the Capricorn Coast has an urgent need for such a social worker because of the high aged population, with many people living alone and because of the high unemployment rate, particularly among young people, that causes family distress and marriage break-ups. "We have a problem here and a community development worker could co-ordinate selfhelp groups as well as assisting with individual family situations," Mr Hinton said.

Speech therapist visits Thursdays SPEECH therapist Janelle Vuolo is based at Rockhampton Base Hospital and attends Yeppoon Hospital every Thursday. Her patients range from babies and the elderly, who have had speech problems from birth or strokes. Patients are referred through the public hospital system. "Traditionally, speech therapy worked on specific skills, but children had difficulty continuing what they were learning outside therapy hours." she said. "The SI000 cheque from Yeppoon Lions Club will be used to purchase items children can adapt to, in more normal situations. "There is a playhouse that can be built where the children move the furniture, placing it in the correct places and naming those places. "They will learn to identify everyday words and use pronouns and sentences correctly." Mrs Vuolo said sometimes new words are used with which the children are unfamiliar. "And that is when the playhouse shows the children what the words represent ... the words become every day and the children find it easier to cope."

Scope offers $1500 for park CAPRICORN Coast Scope Club has offered to provide 51500 toward the cost of playground equipment for Beaman Park, Yeppoon. The club told council by letter that playground equipment was its local project this year. It suggested council could provide additional funds to provide more equipment or, if the 51500 was to be the sole contribution, a Koppers Logs playground be provided with the donation. Shire engineer Pat Murphy, in a report, said because Beaman Park was in the centre of the business area, it was considered a more aesthetically pleasing piece of equipment would be more appropriate. Total cost of the suggested item was about S5000 and it was recommended the club be thanked for its offer of 51500 and the council provide the additional 53500. Cr Ellen Cogill asked where council was going to find its contribution and a debate followed along those lines. Council resolved to thank the Scope Club and "upon receipt of the S1500 contribution, the council will consider making available 53500 for the installation of playground equipment in Beaman Park".

Nev & Carol Welfare's • A : An Ironwood (Eucalyptus Ravretiana) was planted in Appleton Park on Sunday at the Care Fair. Children's Tree Committee oiganiser Stephen Schwarten (centre with hat) provided the tree for Paul Christensen (front right) and Senator Irina Dunn to plant. Wildlife Preservation Society Capricorn branch president Pat O'Brien looked on.

' Care Fair was 'thinking locally, acting globally most NUCLEAR Disarmament Party Senator Irina Dunn (NSW) told people attending the Capricorn Coast Care Fair Day on Sunday they were an example of "thinking locally and acting globally". She said the Care Fair was a most appropriate way for a community of families and individuals to contribute to the richness of Australian social and political life by integrating the two. A nationwide peace issues survey conducted last year by the People for Nuclear Disarmament asked what was the most effective way of achieving peace? "Overwhelmingly, people answered that the

et fective way of bringing about peace in the world was to start in the community, at the local grassroots level," Senator Dunn said. "If we do not begin to develop peaceful means of conflict resolution at a local level, can we really expect the world's leaders to reject belligerent stances and to seek avenues of negotiation that will lessen international tensions?" Senator Dunn said there were many ways in which a community could exert a powerful influence on the political decision-makers of Queensland and Australia. It involved people practising responsible citizenship. The problem was that Australians had a tendency to be either apathetic or cynical about politics and politicians. "Near where I live in Sydney there are a couple of graffitis which express this attitude," she said. "One says: 'It doesn't matter who you vote for, apolitician always gets in'. The other says: 'Don't vote for them. It only encourages them'. Despite my position, I have a great deal of sympathy with these statements.

"However I do believe that voting is an important part of responsible citizenship, but certainly not all of it." Senator Dunn said political representation in Queensland had been biased for many years by the gerrymander. As a result, Queenslanders had effectively been disenfranchised. "This is galling enough in itself, but to discover, via the Fitzgerald Inquiry, the high-level and widespread corruption that many of us have suspected all along, shows what politicians will try to get away with," she said. No wonder we are so cynical about so-called responsible governments. Under these circumstances, it becomes critical for all people to exercise responsible citizenship ... and to take governments to task for their failure to carry out their elected responsibilities." Ordinary electors could not with-hold their vote "but we can inform ourselves of the candidates, their platforms 'their sincerity and honesty, their commitment; and by doing so, channel our votes to where they will be most effective, whether at local, State or Federal level".

Councillors to get groups' submissions LIVINGSTONE Shire councillors will in future receive copies of submissions made by groups so their contributions can be considered during debate. This follows a motion on Tuesday from Cr Glenda Matherwhen discussing the minutes of council's December meeting. Cr Mather said council sought submissions from groups about fire services proposals but councillors only received a verbal report from shire clerk Jim Brown on the groups' letters. She said if council asked groups to make written submissions the least it could do was pay them the courtesy of reading the submissions. "The letters were not even tabled," she said. Shire clerk Jim Brown said the submissions had not been received in time to be included in the agenda and he had read a precis of the submissions to council. Cr Kev Hinz said councillors could not expect to have copies of the letters if they were not received in time for the agenda. Shire chairman Cr John Bowen said to do justice to submissions from local groups, the matter being discussed should be held over. Cr Hinz replied that "when all was said and done," it was the council's opinion that was being sought by the Fire Services Council. The three groups which made submissions were the Bondoola ProgressAssociation, Emu Park Progress Association and the Capricorn Coast Chamber of Commerce and Industry.

• 'ABOVE: English exchange teacher Gill Matthews and her husband Matt arrived on the Capricorn Coast last week after spending some time in Sydney. Gill exchanged her teaching job in Surrey with Coast resident Karen Ruck and takes up her ditties at Yeppoon State Primary School on Monday.

I WAS very interested in your editorial of January 20 - 26, re the planting of trees and neighbourhood participation. For the past four years my husband, and I, with the part-time assistance of two neighbours, have cleaned and planted the area along the creek (Lammermoor Beach) for a distance of nine properties, and created a beautiful park which we continue to maintain. Perhaps you might like to view our effort and hopefully encourage others to become more community conscious. Yes, we are patting ourselves on the back, but feel it is justified with a job well done, Should the council gardener have surplus trees, we would be happy to plant and maintain them. Incidently, last year we paid nearly S200 in excess water rates, but were happy to do so rather than let the plants die for the lack of a drink. We thoroughly enjoy reading the Mirror and find it a reliable source of local information. Keep up the good work. - Elaine Hoelscher, 188 Scenic Drive, Lammermoor Beach.

'Action' is what writer wants... I HAVE a query which I am hoping to have answered. This query is the result of last week's story on council budgeting and is one that has had me wondering for quite a while. The question I wish to put forward is this: Is council liable for prosecution once complaints have been made to advise them of unsafe sections of road, bridges, and conditions of limited entry and egress causing accidents? In the instance of an accident where a fatality or serious injury occurs, disabling a victim,

which cannot be fully accountable to either the driver or a cyclist but is rather through neglect after being advised of risk in the area, and ignoring it? Council asked what we wanted in the budget. I would like safety given priority. The bridge that serves traffic from Rockhampton and Tanby Roads in Park Street is a death trap. Stacks of young cyclists have no option but to use this bridge to travel to school. We need action on this and also bike lanes with accessibility to all schools in the area and particularly Braithwaite Street up Adelaide Park Road. This area, due to the heavy and fast volume of traffic, is more.,aptly known as a drag strip. We have written to council and to a councillor also. What do I want from council? Action!! - Jan Edwards, 64 Braithwaite Street, Yeppoon.

Pat on the back for Telecom MAY I commend Telecom, a very big business, for doing a great service for one small person. I am disabled, mostly housebound, and the telephone is my main link with family, friends and medical help. Just holding the phone had become extremely painful. Telecom management became aware of my problem and supplied me with a headset telephone from surplus stack normally unavailable to the public and installed it at no charge. Thanks are due to Telecom Rockhampton manager Marshall Allan also Mr Lindsay Shepherd and technician Gavin of Yeppoon Telecom and Middlemount Telecom technician Greg McFie who just noted my plight. Their courtesy and generosity provided this unexpected, but most appreciated help. - Mary Gilbert, 27 Taylor Street, Keppel Sands.

"The decision to provide a mammography unit was made about a year ago and women will be able to book in from Monday," mammography unit co-ordinator Viv Staley said this week. The unit is on the corner of North and Talford Streets, Rockhampton. within the hospital grounds. "Women can make their own appointment or can be referred by their family doctor. They can phone St Andrew's Hospital and ask for the mammography unit to make the appointment. "If anyone wants to inquire about the mammography unit, they can contact me anytime during the week," Mrs Staley said. Mammography is an x-ray image of the breast and it takes about half an hour. Within two days of having the mammogram the patient and doctor will be in receipt of the report. She will then be referred to her own doctor for further investigation in the event of an abnormality. The mammogram costs the patient S40 ... if there is a history of breast cancer in the family or the patient's personal history, the charge is claimed against Medicare. It is important for women over 40 years of age to have a mammogram because the incidence of breast cancer rises by 200 per cent after that age. One in 15 women will be affected by breast cancer in their lifetime and it is the most common cause of death in women. By the time you feel a lump, it has been present for five or six years. The mammogram will detect a lump one millimetre in size (about the size of two matchheads placed side-by-side). It is recommended that women between the ages of 40 and 50 have a mammogram yearly; 50 to 60 years every 18 months and 60 years onwards every two years. "The cause of breast cancer is unkown and no method of means of prevention can be offered," Mrs Staley said. She said there was no evidence to show there is a radiation risk from the x-ray offered to a patient at the time of a mammogram. "It has been shown that surveying mammographic results on diagnosing breast cancer has increased the patient's survivorship by 30 per cent." Mrs Staley said it was difficult to diagnose breast cancer in women under 30 years because of the breast's tissue density.

THE Mill Gallery has a new home on Yeppoon's beachfront ... and moves in on March 12. Owner Dale Childs this week said the time had come for her to move the gallery into town from Farnborough. "I will be moving in long before opening, but I want to paint and re-decorate," Dale said. "The building is just down from Seafood and Eat It towards the sailing club and suits my requirements for accommodation and gallery." The gallery has been noted for promoting Capricorn Coast artists since it started five years ago. "We show oils, watercolours, photographs, pottery, woodwork, leatherwork ... in fact there isn't much I don't have on exhibition. "I'm suspending operations at the Farnborough gallery from this weekend, preparing for the move to the premises. Unfortunately it is necessary, but the new gallery will be better. "The gallery will be sited on the top floor and open every day. "It will still be called the Mill Gallery because the name is known all over Central Queensland for quality Coast art. "I have placed paintings in the new Parliament House, Canberra, homes in Sydney, Adelaide and Melbourne. The last five years. have been exciting and I'm looking forward to the future with enthusiasm." Dale has promoted children's art and local designers and seamstresses in specialised displays. "The children's art exhibition is held every September and the creative clothing display will be in Rockhampton, hopefully in March. This exhibition is usually part of the Women in Arts Festival. "The new gallery is going to be just as casual and inviting. I found people have enjoyed the atmosphere ... so it will continue," she said.

'Jacko' resigns after long reign as secretary LONG-time member and long-serving secretary of the Yeppoon Pensioners' League, Mr J E (Jacko) Jackson, resigned his position as secretary at last Thursday's monthly meeting of the league. `Jacko' joined Yeppoon Pensioners' League in 1963 and, in 1964, took over the secretarial reins ... a position he held for over nine years until he resigned and the secretaryship was filled by former ambulance superintendent Fred Leader. However, `Jacko' still retained his position as CQ Zone secretary which he took up in 1968 and held for 15 years. Following occupancy of the secretarial office of Yeppoon Pensioners' League by Fred Leader, the late Roy Hutcheon and Vera Farlow, `Jacko', in 1978, was voted to his second term as secretary and he held that office until Thursday of last week when his resignation was accepted by the members. `Jacko' has been hospitalised with eye trouble and has been absent from meetings for the past four months. He will be having further eye treatment in the near future and he decided to resign as secretary. Mrs Lorna McIntyre, who has been filling in for `Jacko' during his absence, was appointed acting secretary at the January meeting and will contest the position of secretary at the next annual meeting of the league if she so desires. It was unanimously decided on a motion by Mrs Dot Close that a letter of appreciation of his services to the Yeppoon League be forwarded to Mr Jackson. Mr Jackson is a life member of the Yeppoon Pensioners' League.

Join the action ...scouts want all ages involved

3 drink offences

JOIN the action ... Yeppoon Scout Group is looking for boys, youths and adults. The group started about l0years ago and now has its own den in Rose Street, Cooee Bay and the facilities required to give boys and youths a sense of achievement and have fun at the same time. Boys aged from eight years upward are invited to join Yeppoon Scouts Group as cubs (aged between 8 and 11 years) and scouts (10 and 15 years) and become part of a worldwide youth movement. If your son would like to join the scouting movement, contact Mery Leslie, 39 3317 after hours or 27 3833 during the day. Cubs meet every Monday at 7pm and scouts on Thursday at 7pm. Scouting is a voluntary association for adults and children. Its aim is to encourage the physical, mental, social and spiritual development of young people with the emphasis on fun. The Yeppoon group is also looking for a cub leader and assistant scout leader. At present there are about 15 cubs under the care of assistant cub leaders David Murray and Suzanne Sheard. Brett Odell is leader to the 20 scouts. Adults between 18 and 55 years who are interested in becoming leaders can contact Mery Leslie 39 3317 after hours and 27 3833 at work. You don't have to have any previous experience because all leaders are trained. Central Queensland has a strong Scout movement and the majority of training is completed in this area ... usually at Seeonee Park on the Yeppoon-Rockhampton Road. Trained instructors assist new leaders after training, and support isgiven by district leaders in eaclisection. During training, which is divided into short sessions, the emphasis is on fun for the cubs and scouts with the added advantage of learning to grow and develop into responsible citizens. Scouting needs leaders. No-one is paid ... it is all voluntary. Leaders can be brothers, sisters, mothers, fathers, uncles, aunties, singles ... anyone. Without leaders there are no cubs or scouts. There are more than 160,000 members in Australia and 150 million in more than 150 countries. Yeppoon needs a cub leader to oversee the assistants and the scout leader must have an assistant to help him with planning programmes. If there are no adult leaders your children have lost their chance to be part of a group that is, dedicated to helping your children. Parents who do not want to be leaders can help the group committee by assisting with • badge testing, ideas and raising money. Group committee chairman is Mery Leslie, secretary is Carol Williams and Bob Walls is treasurer. The committee meets at 7.30pm on the last Wednesday in each month at the den. The group committee has no part in training or organising the cubs or scouts.

AS Queensland's road toll reaches nearrecord heights, RACQ writer Maria Jauristo looks at some of the tragedies that need not have happened. SEAT BELTS ... hundreds of stories espousing their virtues have been written and dozens of campaigns encouraging their use have been launched. Yet, 20 years since their use became mandatory, even the threat of fines cannot persuade some vehicle drivers and passengers to buckle up.

UNDER Queensland's recently amended Traffic Act there are three principal drinkdriving offences with which a motorist can be charged. First, there is the major offence of driving or being in charge of a motor vehicle upon a road or elsewhere under the influence of liquor or a drug. Secondly, there is the offence of being in charge of a motet- vehicle upon a road or elsewhere while the concentration of alcohol in one's blood equals or exceeds 50 milligrams per 100 millitres of blood (.05). • The third principle offence is failing to provide a prescribed specimen of breath. Under new legislation which became effective in December 1988, random breath testing has been introduced. Police can now stop a motorist and request provision of a breath test at the time or place where the officer makes the request, the nearest police station, or place at which the poliCe officer believes there is a device located to carry out the test. The RACQ warned that if you refuse to take a roadside breath test, or to provide a specimen elsewhere, an offence is committed. The RACQ also warned that refusal to take the test had the same status as the major drinkdriving offence. If you are charged, the RACQ suggested it would pay you to have proof of your identity and address with you to show you have lived there for some time. Should you be found guilty of driving under the influence, you will be liable to a fine, or even a jail term, and will be disqualified from holding a driver's licence. If your blood alcohol level was between .05 and .15, you would be liable for a fine up to $700, licence disqualification ranging from one to nine months, plus possible imprisonment up to three months. If the level is above .15 you would be liable for a fine up to $1400, mandatory licence disqualification.for six months and possible imprisonment up to nine months. If you had convictions for drink-driving during the previous five years, the penalties would be harsher. For young drivers aged under 18, the blood alcohol limit is .02. Exceeding that limit involves fines of up to $700, loss of licence and possible imprisonment. `Mistaken belief that they were under the prescribed blood alcohol level is a defence that can no longer be used by drivers in Queensland.

In Queensland, more than 10 per gent of adults and 40 per cent of children still travel unrestrained. The excuses, as catalogued in the Transport Department case files, are legion. So too are the tragic examples of how failure to buckle up have cost precious lives. Only names have been changed in these actual Transport Department case studies of road deaths. For Linda, her seven year old daughter's screaming tantrum was excuse enough not to strap her into her car seat. After all, she was only going down the road to the shops- so Sue was allowed to stand up on the back seat. As Linda was driving, another vehicle ignored a give-way sign and sped in front of her car. She slammed on the brakes to avoid it, but ran into its side. Little Sue was thrown forward and died when her head struck the dashboard. Although severely shocked, her seat-belted mother was unhurt. The Green family's excuse was that they didn't own a baby capsule. As the family set out on an outing, Mrs Green sat in the back and nursed their young baby with her four year old son, Ben, strapped into a child restraint seat. 'Both Mr and Mrs Green wore seat belts. The traffic stopped suddenly. Mr Green swerved and braked but hit the car in front. The baby was flung from Mrs Green's arms and suffered fatal head injuries when his head struck the rear door. No-one else was injured and there was only slight damage to the ve-. hide... Had they been alive today to give it, Val and her daughter Anna's excuse would have been that they were sitting in the rear of the car and didn't think to buckle up. Val's husband, Mark, and their son, Peter, were sitting in the front seat, restrained properly. A tyre blew and the car went out of control, rolling down an embankment. Anna was thrown out and her head struck the ground. Mark ran to her and tried to revive her but she died in his arms. Val died later in hbspital. Mark and Peter were uninjured... Against this background of needless loss of life and case after case which prove that seat belts do indeed save lives, the latest RACQ research, showing 10 per cent of adults in front seats of vehicles and 41 per cent in rear seats

still don't buckle up, is disturbing. An even more disturbing statistic is the 40 per cent of children allowed to travel unrestrained in both the front and rear seats of cars. "While seat belts wearing rates had increased by some 15 to 20 per cent since the club's previous seat belt survey in 1984, the figures were still disappointing,” RACQ's traffic and saftey manager Joe Kenny said. "I don't knowwhy these people don't buckle up," Mr Kenny said. "All it takes is a few seconds and they may have saved their lives. Butperhaps what's really ' sad is seeing children travel in cars without being restrained. "Although the number •of children restrained correctly had increased by about 16 per cent in four years, the four out of ten nonwearing rate among youngsters was still far too high ... while any increase is good," Mr Kenny said. "The figures 'have shown that parents and others adults who drive with children in cars are not taking enough care to ensure they are restrained adequately." "The RACQ's recent seat belt survey had also revealed that many children did not use available child seats and restraints correctly." During RACQ field surveys it was observed that many youngsters sat in child restraint seats without wearing the safety harness. "This was possibly more dangerous than sitting on the car seat unrestrained," Mr Kenny said. From the higher position, there was greater possibility of being thrown over the front seat in the event of a frontal collision. "While accurate statistics of unnecessary trauma were not generally available, the Transport Department had analysed the seat belt wearing of all persons killed in motor accidents from January to June 1987," Mr Kenny said. The department's study revealed that some 75 per cent of all people under 17 years of age were unrestrained at the time of impact and that 51 per cent of all vehicle occupants killed were unrestrained. Although it was unlikely that all of these people would have survived had they been ----' restrained, there was no doubt that seat belts would have improved their chances of escaping serious injury. Officers of the police traffic accident section confirmed that non-wearing of restraints often made the difference between a minor injury and a serious, or fatal, injury.

Squash teams "named for '89 THE Capricorn Coast Squash Rackets Association team selections were completed this week in readiness for the start of competition on Monday, February 6. A and B grade team selections were done to a more flexible format based on a revision of a new point system trialled by A grade last season. This innovation gives captains a much greater opportunity to hand-pick a team while still staying within grading guidelines and maintaining relative team strengths. Captains interviewed seem well pleased with their selections and eager to test them at the start of competition this week. The test of team strength will be the scoreboard at the end of the first round.

Australian Rules organisers disappointed with turn-out YEPPOON Australian Rules Football Club organisers were disappointed with the roll-up for sign-on day.

ers who are unable to train or who are out of condition for the start of the training season," she said. Brisbane Bears player Brad Hardie will be in Yeppoon on Sunday, February 26 between 9.30am and 1 lam to meet junior and senior players.

CapCoast entered a combined second and third grade side and the win made it the third time in succession they had won the Ron Harrup Cup. The Coast side played Monto Kangaroos on Saturday. Monto could only manage 108, due mainly to fine bowling by K Ogilvie and J Ingle taking five for 15 and four for 38. Coast then batted and passed Monto's score for the loss of six wickets with W Kitchener scoring 30, P Ambrose 25 (not out) and P Huxtable 21. CapCoast played Douglas Creek on Sunday. Coast batted first accumulating 175 off 51 avers. J Ingle scored 52. J Dawes 33 and S Pidcock 28. The task set for Douglas Creek was well out of their reach. After starting solidly.

J Ingle capped a fine match with his 6-23 and Douglas Creek scored 91. On Monday Cap Coast met last year's rivals ... Nebo. Cap Coast needed to make it three in a row over the weekend to insure its claim for the cup and never let Nebo into the match. Nebo batted first and was pinned down by fine bowling and fielding. The side managed 74 from 44 overs. J Ingle once again relished the wicket with 538, I Anderson 3-13 and W Kitchener 2-14.

Squash teams in State titles THREE Capricorn Coast Squash Rackets Association teams represented the Coast in the State teams titles held in Rockhampton during the Australia Day weekend. The number one men's team performed well, finishing well up in the numbers. Number two team playing in division eight found the competition a bit stiff but gained valuable experience. The women's team played in the highly competitive second division, and although not scoring highly, was far from disgraced at the end of the competition.

Junior league plans YEPPOON Junior Rugby League is meeting to discuss the new season for the league. The meeting is at the Pacific Hotel on Tuesday, February 7 at 7.30pm.

DOGS aren't everyone's favourite cup of tea ... but, to be fair, it's usually the dog's owner who's at fault. Take this case ... a bloke took his family for a day out at Waterpark Creek over the long weekend and was amazed that another car pulled up with a dog panting at the window. There's signs everywhere saying dogs aren't allowed yet people in second car jump out with dog, race to the creek, and all start splashing around with the dog. First bloke debates with himself about telling them that dogs aren't allowed, especially in the Coast's water supply, but decides rather than make a scene he'll grin and bear it. Time passes, dog comes out of water with owner and both race up to the car. Owner grabs fluffy beach towel and lovingly dries off dog so it won't wet the car seats. Another family member comes out of water, races up to car, looks for towel ... and discovers the only towel they had was used on dog. First bloke chuckled to himself watching the rest of them dry themselves on a tea towel! ••• HAD an item a couple of weeks ago about Roo-Poo being the new growth inductry on the Coast. Well, the six little Roo-Poos have rolled around in their plastic bag on a desk at th Capricorn Coast Mirror office since then an• provided endless fun for visitors. But it's time to report there's a problem with this particular packet ... it's growing. All six little balls of roopoo have sprouted white fuzzy things while two of the larger urn, er, shall we say, selections, have started sprouting what appears to be grass shoots. Well, it was described as a "growth" industry so there's no way that's false advertising! ••• ANYWAY, one of my "older" readers (I think he's the bloke who photographed Capt Cook planting the flag for all the history books and made a fortune on reprint rights) reckons bags of Roo-Poo are nothing new ... "why, I remember when a so-called Professor something or other came through Rockhampton 70 years ago selling goat turds with cake icing around them". At that point, our "older" correspondent had everyone's attention. He couldn't recall whether the sugar-coated turds were supposed to have any medicinal properties ... but he remembers people buying them and eating them!! ••• "OLD Baldy," decided to top this story by telling about the time he was invited to the opening of a Gourmet Food Bar in a plus department store in then then new Garden City Shopping Centre in Brisbane. Among the tinned jellied eels, shark fin soup (surely the only use for a shark) and stuff like that were some "sweets" which were handed around to the assembled media hordes. All were urged to try a cylindrical chocolate-coated delicacy that looked like a bullet (a chocolate-coated licorice lolly). They tasted the same, too, except ) they were a bit crunchy ... then the media folk. were told they'd been eating chocolate-coated ants! They were dirty big sugar ants that had been dipped in chocolate. Ever since then he's been a steak, tomatoes and onions eater! ••• ANYWAY, our "older" correspondent, fmding the conversation had turned to food, made the comment that Yeppoon now had the same number of butchers that it had before World War II. Today there's Angliss in Savemore, Denhams Meat Hall in Savemore, Tuckers in James Street and O'Briens in Arthur Street. Before the war, Wests had a shop in what is now Dr Degotardi's surgery; Codds were in what is now Dr Harris' surgery and Nixons had a shop in James Street and another in Normanby Street, near the present Westpac Bank. Apparently Nixons also operated the Emu Park Butchery then which means the Coast now has the same number of meat outlets as it had half a century ago. All we need now is the same amount of sand on the beaches as we had then and we'd be a thriving beach resort!!! •

KINKA Beach's erosion watcher B ert Moore has a new claim to fame ... he sang "Jerusalem" at the Melbourne Cricket Ground! He took his family and friends to the first semi-final between Australia and the West Indies (the one we won by two) and was among the 75,000 fans who tried to leave at the end. Rather than. join the slow-moving crowd, liert decided his party should be last to leave. They sat and sat and watched the cleaners until Bert decided fans leaving needed entertainment. He stood opened his arms wide ... and sang: "Jerusalem, Jerusalem". Unfortunately, talent scouts from Hey, Hey It's Saturday's Red Faces did not have time to assess Bert's potential because those two words are all he knows. Still, even Frank Sinatra would be happy with an audience of 75,000!!! \.
