Minister to see Pivot's leases A STATE ministerial party will inspect the proposed Pivot Group mining leases on Tuesday, February 28 at Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton's request. Mr Hinton said the group would be looking at the areas to be mined if Pivot's application to the Federal Government is successful. "The most important thing, of course, is the Capricorn Coast's water supply. We have to make sure that that won't be interfered with in any way," Mr Hinton said. "We will also be looking at the possible interference with estuaries and fish breeding grounds and the company's plans for the total reclamation of mined areas. "I am particularly interested in seeing this area that has been included in the Australian Heritage Commission, as of course, is Mr Muntz." The group will be led by Conservation and Environment Minister Geoff Muntz. Also included is Mr Hinton, State Mines representative Malcolm Daley, Environment Department representative Tom Gilmore, and representatives from National Parks and Wildife, the Army, Pivot and the Wildlife Preservation Society Capricorn Coast branch. Mr Hinton said he expected that by today (Friday) he will have received permission from the Army for the group to see the Shoalwater Bay Training Area.

$250,000 walkway could be auseway's 3rd lane • By John and Suzy Watson

A NEW Causeway Bridge aimed at today's needs has been designed and can be built in the next financial year for $1.803 million ... but it does not provide for tomorrow's traffic conditions by having a third lane. Livingstone Shire Council and Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton have been made aware of costs involved in the new bridge and negotiations have started on the most important part of the construction ... the walkway. The walkway, alone, will cost ratepayers $251,000 but it's that walkway which is the main reason there's going to be a new bridge. Fears that "someone's going to get killed" prompted then candidate for Broadsound Denis Hinton to bring then Main Roads Minister Russ Hinze to the Capricorn Coast on Sunday, October 5, 1986, and a meeting at the Causeway resulted in Mr Hinze arranging a $50,000 grant to the Capricornia Institute to build a model of the area and determine the best way to handle erosion, siltation and walkway problems. A lot of water has flowed under the Causeway since then but now the details are being worked out by council, Mr Hinton and Main Roads. There was a "spirit of agreement" on that Sunday. Mr Hinze was in a jovial mood and he left the crowd laughing. But he made it perfectly clear that he expected council to be involved in the funding of the new bridge. That was understood ... but the $251,000 bill that council faces for the walkway has not met unanimous support. Last week, during council's February meeting, councillors resolved to open negotiations with Main Roads over the walkway. Council had two options before it but one could

hardly be described as fair dinkum. The first option is for a new bridge and a widened Causeway viaduct. That's the one that's going to cost ratepayers $251,000. It"s the second option that has absolutely nothing going for it. This provides a "dollied up" old bridgeand a walkway the length of the bridge ... and nothing else. All it has going for it is the cost to ratepayers ... $38,000. But that's not what Mr Hinze was talking about in 1986 and it's certainly not what Mr Hinton or Cr Bowen are talking about today. Both Cr Bowen and Mr Hinton referred to this option as a "dollied up" bridge. Mr Hinton, on Wednesday night, said it was not even being considered. So, the ratepayers are left with a new bridge with an all-up cost of $1.803 million of which $251,000 belong to council as its share of the walkway. Mr Hinton said the new bridge was the only option that could be considered and he said the $251,000 could be paid over two financial years. Meanwhile the council, after considering both options, has found a negotiation point. The Main Roads plans show a complete walkway with the new bridge but only a partial walkway with the "dollied up" bridge. Being a walkway that leads no-where it's really only a fishing platform ... but if the new bridge only had the same length walkway the cost for

ratepayers would drop from $251,000 to $64,000. Mr Hinton wants to see the walkway continue for the full length because it was concern for pedestrians' lives that prompted the meetings, the model, the drawings and the final proposal. "I believe this is the only sensible long-term approach to safe traffic on the Capricorn Coast's Scenic Loop Road," he said. "It should be constructed as soon as possible given the present dangerous situation that exists." Mr Hinton is right ... that's why the proposed new bridge is being offered. But there's a third option that council, Mr Hinton, Main Roads and maybe Cabinet, which meets in Yeppoon next week, should consider. This third option involves little more work than is now planned ... and would result in a third lane for traffic when it is needed. The Main Roads Department should look at providing more rock fill on the western side of the Causeway to a width necessary for a future third lane. In the meantime, while the third lane is not necessary, the extra width could be used as a cycleway and a walkway. Perhaps by the year 2000 the third lane will be necessary and it will be available. Also, by the time the third lane is needed, the Capricorn Coast will be more prosperous and will probably be in a better situation then to provide

funds for another extension which would be the walkway. Council appears ready now to pay for the bridge part of the walkway at a cost of $68,000 so there shouldn't be any grumbles from there and Main Roads could do itself a favour by solving a future traffic problem at today's prices. Let's face it, just building the proposed new bridge and widening the existing Causeway road is going to cause chaos to today's motorists. Think of the chaos 10 years down the track when Main Roads tries to add a third lane. Main Roads, at that time, would probably face the situation of having to provide a completely new bridge spanning the entire Causeway. If this is doubted, look at what happened in Brisbane when traffic choked the old Hornibrook Highway between Redcliffe and Sandgate ... a brand new bridge was built! Mr Hinton said this week the new bridge could be built in the 1989/90 financial year if council makes its decision. With Cabinet in town next week, the third lane is an option that should not be overlooked. After all, Main Roads did suggest in one option that it would "dolly up" the old bridge and provide a walkway for just that section. What's the difference in providing a walkway for the new bridge and just having a third lane ready for the future in the more expensive proposal?

A COOEE Bay land-owner is in dispute with Livingstone Shire Council over placement of a sewerage pipe and man-hole on her land. The vacant land is in Elma Street, Cooee Bay, opposite a new unit development. The sewer main to service the development has been accessed through Mrs Nora Burton's 24 perch allotment. "Before council placed this last sewer main and man-hole, my land already had one sewer main along the back boundary and two manholes," she said. "Two man-holes are in each back corner, with one running on a diagonal. "The new sewer main, placed by council, is along the western side of my property with another man-hole just inside my front boundary. "I did not give my permission for council to use my land. Council contacted me, by phone, in January this year and asked if it could have access through my 24 perch allotment. I refused," she said. "Council knew last year that it would have to arrange to supply sewer mains to that development. It could have contacted me a lot earlier at least, so that it could be discussed." After the contact from council Mrs Burton advertised for three days in the Morning Bulletin's public notices that no-one was allowed access to the Elma Street block for any purpose. "Surely, when you own a block of land, and I have owned and paid rates on that allotment for at about 25 years, the council can't just go and do what they want. "I now have a sewer main along the western side, across the back and three man-holes in three corners of my allotment. "I have a letter signed by the shire clerk saying council would offer compensation, but that's not good enough. "That land is of no use to me now and I want council to buy it from me. The only compensation they can offer me that I will accept is full purchase of my allotment. "Council could build a small on it for a council officer and he could live with the mains and man-holes. "Maybe the developer could buy it if council won't." "I want council to stop all work on the sewerage. I don't want them to connect the pipes to the development from the main on my land until I have received compensation." Mrs Burton was .permitted to address February's council meeting to discuss her problem. At that meeting council decided to call for a report from the engineer. When the report was completed Mrs Burton would be invited to a meeting with the chairman, division two councillors, shire clerk and engineer. Shire chairman Cr John Bowen said the only place the man-hole could be placed was on Mrs Burton's land. "It couldn't be placed on the footpath be-

cause of other services already there," he said. "The man-hole was put in the extreme front corner of the allotment. "The main runs down the side of the block and wouldn't interfere with anyone wanting to build a house on the land. "You have to build a residence a certain distance from a boundary and that is why the sewer main was put down the side as close to the boundary as possible " Section 50(2)(i) of the Local Government Act 1936-1984: Works, etc., may be carried out on roads and lands. For the purpose of exercising and performing any of the functions of local government under this Act or any other Act, the Local Authority may provide any works, matters, or things as are necessary on, through, across, or under any road, and may also on making compensation therefore carry any such works, matters, or things into, through, across, or under any other land.

Trees dangerous at Mulambin park MULAMBIN Beach camping area caretaker Harry McNamara said last week's Capricorn Coast Mirror story on removal of trees from the camping area did not take into account the trees were dangerous. The story said council had cut down Casuarinas in the camping ground and local residents were angry the trees had been removed against ratepayers' wishes. Mr McNamara said the trees that had been removed were dangerous to campers and daytrippers. "The trees had to be removed, not pruned. There have been occasions when limbs and even trees have fallen on tents and caravans," he said. "We have strong winds here and some of the trees are dangerous. There are still some trees that need to be removed because they are hazardous." Council warns anyone staying at Mulambin Beach camping area that they stay at their own risk and that council is not responsible for any loss or injury. The notice, given to everyone who books in, reads in part: "Persons making use of this park and its facilities may be exposed to the risk of substantial damage to their property and/or serious personal injury during periods of high wind velocity".

KINKA BEACH will be the focus of attention on March 6 at 7.55ani when a group with the power to repair erosion damage will watch the sea nibbling at the sand dune during a 4.5m. tide. Watching the sea will be State Government Ministers, Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton, shire chairman Cr John Bowen, Capricomia Institute erosion experts and council officers. This was announced to Livingstone Shire Council last week by Cr Bowen when he remarked that everyone was going to be warned "not to stand too close to the edge". This first-hand experience of erosion at work at Kinka Beach is expected to highlight the scope of the problem and, at the same time, make Ministers aware of the State Government's responsibilities. Discussion on this topic came about last week when council was adopting a recommendation on its interim works programme for next financial year. In a report, shire clerk Jim Brown said there was an opportunity for the council for the council to participate in erosion "demonstration works" next year. These could be funded by the Beach Protection Authority on a dollar for dollar basis, or even better. He recommended council should indicate a willingness to participate on a larger scale with specific works at Yeppoon or Kinka Beach in cooperation with other governments. The figure of $200,000 was proposed which, in summary, was shown to be a $100,000 loan for beach protection and a subsidy of S100,000. Cr Bowen, discussing the topic, said the experts would be meeting at Kinka Beach on March 6 to see the erosion problem first-hand. He suggested Mr Hinton may well be able to convince the Minister of the size of the problem and have the State Government pay $200,000 for work as a grant. He based his belief on the cost the government would face, through the Main Roads Department, if part of the Scenic Highway fell into the sea. He said Main Roads would automatically deny responsibility "but 40 years ago when it built the groyne (Causeway) it used the cheapest materials". It had lowered the flush of water from the Causeway by 50 per cent. Main Roads had "saved a great deal of money" by building a viaduct. This had taken 40 years to show its effects. Cr Roy Wall suggested council should borrow a further $100,000 specifically for Kinka Beach, not $100,00 for Yeppoon or Kinka as stated in the report to council. He said there was a lot more chance of getting something done at Kinka Beacli if council was prepared to borrow the extra $100,000. "They (the Ministers) will want to see what priority council puts on the work," he said. Kinka had been getting washed away for the past 10 years and council had been procrastinating for the past six years. "I say put $100,000 aside for Kinka Beach. If we're not going to provide any money, who is?" he said. "Kinka is getting pounded to pieces." He made this suggestion an amendment to the motion. Earlier, Cr Bowen had mentioned that a total of S400,000 was available from the B PA for erosion work. Cr John Smith, commenting on that figure, described it as a "drop in the bucket" and "miserable". "The State Government has to bite the bullet. The ratepayers can't pick up the tab," he said. Cr Glenda Mather asked what council spent on beach protection and when told, said it was obvious council did not allow enough in the budget. Cr Bowen responded sharply. "We need $2 million now! What we have to do is grasp the principle of funding and state publicly that State and Federal Governments are not facing up to their responsibilities," he said. When she asked whether council benefitted from tourism, Cr Bowen replied that the whole of Australia gained. "We should be standing united, not screwing down the nails on the coffins of our ratepayers," he said.

Cr Ron Landsberg said the cost of beach protection was a government responsibility and it should not be coming out of ratepayers' money. Cr Ellen Cogill said council had to pressure governments to help. There were further comments along similar lines and shire engineer Pat Murphy said there was a proposal for a beach "demonstration" (erosion control work) on Yeppoon's main beach. Supporting this statement, Cr Brian Dorey said council should not look a gift horse in the mouth. He said the usual subsidy was 25 per cent. Cr Wall, supporting his own amendment, said he was against only providing $100,000 because it would go no-where. "If this $100,000 is to go on Yeppoon we are still left with nothing on Kinka Beach," he said. He said $100,000 was a drop in the ocean and council should go for $200,000 and get something for Kinka Beach. Cr Bowen said Mr Hinton had acknowledged Kinka Beach as a disaster area. Mr Hinton wanted a project to be put up for Kinka Beach that could be put to the Ministers on the day they visited the beach. He said Mr Hinton had realised how bad it was on Sunday when they had walked on the new groyne. The tide had come over the top of it and it had been breached. The next tides were going to be even higher and the damage could be enormous. Cr Duncan McDonald said he was against borrowing an extra $100,000 because it was not going to do anything. "Out in the rural areas we want roads," he said. "The government has known about Kinka Beach for years. The people of Kinka have been cutting down trees for years and burning them. It's a waste of money as far as I am concerned." He queried why Livingstone had to pay for the works when people from other shires came to the Coast for the beaches. Cr Dowie foreshadowed that council carry the recommendation calling for provision to be made for a $100,000 loan with the addition that council did not see this fund as being adequate to do any satisfactory work at Kinka Beach and it be treated as an emergency issue and be taken up with the State Government. Cr Wall's amendment seeking an additional $100,000 loan was lost. Council then discussed the original motion with Cr Dowie's addition. Cr Key Hinz said he felt council had to put something in its budget for erosion. He had seen merit in the idea of providing 5200,000. He doubted anyone would pay 100 per cent of the cost. The motion, as it stood, did not say the money was specifically for Yeppoon. Itcould be Yeppoon or Kinka Beach. He was keeping his options open. Closing the debate, Cr Bowen said it was a State and Federal Government matter. The money had to come from the State Government's general fund. Cr Cogill recorded her name against the decision.

Cooberrie area parents want second bus run A DEPUTATION of parents from the Cooberrie district whose children attend Farnborough State School will meet Education Minister Brian Littleproud on Monday, March 6, in an attempt to secure an additional school bus route. Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton arranged the deputation following a meeting with parents at Farnborough School. Parents of 10 children expressed concern at their necessity to transport children to Farnborough School by car. "The children already have access to a school bus to Yeppoon State Primary School but their parents have voluntarily chosen Farnborough," Mr Hinton said. "Parents in the area are assessing how many other children would use an additional bus service if it were available." Mr Hinton inspected Byfield and Farnborough State schools on a tour of Broadsound schools. "I am pleased that both schools are in first class condition with new improvements under way. "Byfield State School has a new early education unit, costing 590,000 which is providing excellent pre-school education in the district. A new covered play area will be constructed by the end of June this year." "At Farnborough the new pre-school is presently under construction and when completed should release an additional class room. This will enable the school to split up the existing composite class of years 4, 5, 6 and 7. An additional teacher will then be required," he said. "Should the school bus initiative be successful, bringing more students to the school, then this move would be further facilitated." Mr Hinton praised the staff and parents and citizens associations at both schools on the "outstanding conditions of the school grounds". "However, the staff facilities at Farnborough State School are totally inadequate and I am writing to Mr Littleproud in an endeavour to have improvements in this situation effected."

Shire council wants a logo LIVINGSTONE Shire residents have been invited to submit ideas and sketches for a logo representing the shire. Council's Tow-ism and Development Committee chairman Cr Mike Prior said the logo could be used by Shire businesses, organisations and council. "We're looking for something that is instantly recognisable as representing our coastline and hinterland," Cr Prior said. "Sketches are preferable, but we realise not everyone has artistic talents, so ideas on what could be included would be quite okay. "We want input from the whole community. The ideas and sketches will then be given to an artist so a decision can be reached by council." The contest is expected to run for two months from this week. "Council has arranged prizes for logo winners. We have organised a weekend for two at Great Keppel Island Resort, two nights at Capricorn Iwasaki Resort, a day trip to the reef on the Reefseeker, a day trip on Victory and a family pass to shire attractions." There are no entry forms and all entries are to be addressed to shire clerk Jim Brown. Any inquiries about the logo to shire planner Scot Stewart at council.

Guides celebrate a day of thinking GUIDES from the first Yeppoon unit celebrating thinking day on Monday.

Thinking Day is when guides and brownies remember and think of others in the world. The girls and leader Viviennne Cole were dressed as people from other countries. During the afternoon leader Viv Cole received a good service badge for her work for guiding in Central Queensland. Thinking Day is celebrated as close to February 22, each year as possible. Lord Robert Baden-Powell and his wife Olave celebrated their birthdays on February 22, but several years apart. Olave Baden Powell was born in 1889, Robert Baden Powell in 1857.

A STEERING committee was tormed on Tuesday at Livingstone Shire Council chambers to gauge interest in starting a University of the Third Age on the Capricorn Coast. Forty-eight people heard Queensland Council of the Ageing co-ordinator Nell Stanaway and Queensland Recreation Council representative Ian Whitehead explain what the University of the Third Age is and how much benefit Coast residents would receive from one. The meeting was chaired by Livingstone Shire chairman Cr John Bowen. He started off the meeting with everyone in the chambers introducing themselves ... a real ice-breaker. The steering committee was formed and will be supported by Nell Stanaway and Ian Whitehead in advisory positions. It will organise another public meeting, gauge the amount of interest for a University of the Third Age on the Coast and gather information from the Rockhampton group. Those on the steering committee are: Joan Whyte, Joan Byatt, Brian Bartley, Cr Mike Prior, Pat Andersen, Jean Morton and Joy Walsh. Leo Carpenter would not accept a position at that time, but acted as secretary for the meeting. The committee has been offered the use of the council chambers and facilities ... a generous offer by Cr John Bowen. Rockhampton City Council has also supported the group there. The University of the Third Age is not a profit-making concern. The Rockhampton group has a SIO yearly fee and that covers postage, a newsletter, insurance and other incidentals. The Capricorn Coast has a large population of citizens of the third age ... people who are actively retired. They don't want to stagnate and a number of them want to learn things they didn't have the time or opportunity to do before retirement. *** THE Emu Park Historical Museum Society's flea market is on tomorrow, Saturday, at the museum in Hill Street, Emu Park. *** GUEST speaker at the next•general meeting of the Wildlife Preservation Society Queensland, Capricorn Branch is Livingstone Shire town planner Scot Stewart. In addition to informing the meeting about the town plan - in planning since 1977 - Mr Stewart will also speak about the local government role. Question time will be followed by slides/ video on the Shoalwater Bay Army Training Area. Venue is Yeppoon RSL hall at 7.30pm on Tuesday, February 28. Everyone is welcome.

FOR more than 15 years the Central Queensland conservation movement has regarded Shoalwater Bay as one of the more important sites in its region of interest. Conservationists have participated in a number of official inspections and have generally acknowledged that the Defence Department's management strategy is conservation based. Conservationists have worked with the army in this area to keep ecological damage to a minimum despite the land use. The department has also had discussions with the CSIRO and the conservation movement over land use policies. The key to environmentally sensitive land management is the ability of the Defence Department to currently spread its operations over a large area. This allows access restrictions to apply following military exercises to facilitate natural regeneration. This ability would t)e seriously restricted should sandmining proceed in the eastern areas. The Australian Heritage Commission and the Federal Government will be required to determine the significance of the mining proposal in the area. Of the major coastal key areas between Cooktown and NSW, Shoalwater Bay has been g a iven the highest heritage ranking of all. Other areas in comparision would include the Daintree Rainforests, Whitsunday region, Fraser Island and Cooloola. Shoalwater Bay is the largest and most undeveloped region on the east coast south of Cooktown ... a magnificent area scenically, and an important scientific reference area. Most of Shoalwater Bay Training Area has not been used extensively, and about 20 sites within the training area are being maintained as scientific reference points. The general public should be aware that there are two impact sites on Townsend Island and one site further west. The impact sites are probably the least used areas in Shoalwater Bay, not only because of the high cost of explosives, but because there are many other army activities just as important, if not more so. No impact sites are located in the proposed mining lease areas, which are the least used areas of all. The Wildlife Preservation Society of Queensland was established in 1963 by the poet Judith Wright. We now have 23 branches in Queensland and every branch now has an environment awareness officer. There are over 60 non-government conservation groups in Queensland and Australia has over 350,000 active conservationists, supported by many other citizens who are not in a position to publicly state their concerns. We are not totally anti-development. In spite of worldwide land degradation, pollution, and deforestation, most conservationists see the need for a 'marriage' between ecology and economics. There is a need to address economic issues because the environment does not exist as a separate unit from human factors, needs and ambitions. Greenhouse and ozone layer damage have shown us how sensitive our environment really

is and how fine the line is between progress and pollution. The Capricorn Coast needs honest, sustainable industry and development ... industry that people can be proud to be a part of. Do we really need the so called 'ugly industry' sandmining, to create divisiveness and controversy in our community and cause the destruction of much of our beautiful coastline. - Pat O'Brien, Capricorn Coast branch Wildlife Preservation Society of Queensland president.

Here we go againhowls of protest from greenies HERE we go again. A large company wishes to start an industry which will provide jobs and a boost to the area and to the economy and howls of protest come from `greenies', conservationists and others. Central Queensland is recoiling 'because the Government has a Northern Development Strategy but just about everything that wants to come to Central Queensland is met with a wall of opposition. There is more than just preserving beauty, animals and bats involved. The development of the north is an urgent strategic necessity if we are to survive, indeed it applies to all Australia. What we have to preserve for our children and grandchildren is our ownership of our God-given land and if we don't use our resources, others who don't have them, will. After February 15, 1942 (how many remembered that last week?) we were told by our conquerors (ask a POW) if they did not win the war, they would win the peace, if it took 100 years. Their pace is stepping up but their Fabian strategy cannot or will not be seen by Australia's famous Fabians who are running around trying to save us with an anti-nuclear stand. Wake up Australia before it is too late to save what has been hardly fought for. By the way, will someone tell me of what use is the Ghost bat? - H M Brownsdon, Farnborough Road, Yeppoon.

Pivot mining plan has Mirror's 'blind support' WITH regard to the Pivot sandmining proposal which obviously has your blind support, I offer these comments. 1 The mining lease areas have never been bombed, nor is live firing involved. For 24 years the Army has acted responsibly and confined live firing and bombing to particular areas. One can only assume that this will continue. 2 The two large marine estuaries of Port Clinton and Island Head Creek, which are extremely important to both recreational and commercial fishermen, are at risk from this proposal. These two estuaries are the only estuaries in Central Queensland that have not been destroyed, partially destroyed or affected by man's so-called progress. Open your eyes and take a look at the rest. For example, in Figtree Creek at Yeppoon, we have playing fields and buildings where once mud crabs lived and mullet swam. 3 Sandmining has been banned on Fraser Island and strongly opposed on Moreton Island, both these islands are very nice but do not compare with the appeal that Port Clinton, Pearl Bay and Island Head have for the boating community. That part of the mining lease area is the most picturesque part of the Australian coastline. Only an environmental vandal would support mining that area. 4 Finally, we obviously need an Army and that Army needs the most diverse training area. If these young soldiers are willing to put their lives on the line to protect our families and this country then Pivot and its supporters can take their mining proposals elsewhere for mine. - Ray Harris, 40 Adelaide Street, Yeppoon.

'Pleasure to read unbiased article' on sandmining TO the editors and special note to James Hill. It was a pleasure to read your unbiased article on mining in the Shoalwater Bay Military Training Area. Very rarely these days does one have the inclination to congratulate any of the media on feature articles or news produced, especially in the print division. To me, a journalist is a person who gathers the news and facts and prints them in a completely unbiased, unpersonalised article. I believe the old-day reporters would turn over in their graves at some items that are produced by so-called journalists today. The majority do nothing except sensationalise. or attempt to push their own views and beliefs down the public's throat. A true example of this is the ABC TV with their current affairs and news items pouring out the views of only one political party. As a swinging voter the ABC has lost me through this reason. I think my mentality is above the political trash they dish out. Having had my dig. back to the article on Shoalwater Bay. Great work and congratulations on this article. Also, as a long-time fan of James Hill, I can only say these paragraphs are a classic of great column work. - A Moore, Kinka Beach.

How can council cut down those Casaurina trees? HOW can the Livingstone Shire Council be so ignorant as to cut down Casaurina trees on Mulambin Beach? There they are, piteously bleating to the State Government for funds to fight erosion, and at the same time taking a chainsaw to nature's answer to the problem. Don't they know that if you cut down a tree on a beach or on a hillside, you cause erosion? Is that not grade one commonsense stuff? • Are they so blind that they cannot see that this Coast has a natural answer to erosion with its Casaurina and Weeping Cabbage Palms. These trees are native to the Coast and grow here quickly and easily. I went along to the council nursery in Yeppoon and asked for some Casaurina trees. "Oh no, sorry lady, we don't have any of those. They're not an attractive tree you know". So Kinka Beach is being washed away and Yeppoon beach remains a problem but the council has not one Casaurina tree to replace all those it destroyed last week. - Name and Address supplied.

Scientist's evaluation was not an objection THE CSIRO scientist referred to in last week's report on Pivot Group Limited's proposal to mine the Shoalwater Bay area said this week he had not made public his "objections" ... he had released his "evaluations". He said his evaluations were a comment on Pivot's draft Environmental Impact Statement. He said the role of the CSIRO was to make information available to the public.

Mulambin concern at gradual loss of protective trees THE following letter has been sent to Livingstone Shire Council. MULAMBIN Beach residents have contacted me expressing their concern over the gradual removal of beach protecting trees in their area, namely Beach Casuarinas or Coast She-oak. I discussed this with the Shire engineer Pat Murphy, who said that the trees removed were old and dangerous. True, that this casuarina can become straggly as it matures, with dead branches appearing. However, judicious pruning in the early stages would overcome this problem and prolong the life of the tree. This Beach Casuarina (Casuarina Equisitifolia) is an ideal tree for planting in fore dunes and one that occurs naturally all along the Queensland Coast. I would suggest that council takes note of the experimental area planted by the Beach Protection Authority on the southern side of Sunflower Street beach entrance to Kinka Beach. Walk along the beach and it can be seen how the trees, planted only one to two metres apart, now form a dense wind break, while helping to hold the dune. Unfortuately, this continuous line, forming a barrier to wind and wind blow sand, was partially destroyed two years ago when a fire was allowed to burn through the dunes in order to `improve' the sea view. Plantings of natives, preferably before the removal of shade and protection from the older trees, together with the backing of other salt tolerant natives, such as the Cottonwood (Hibiscus Tileaceus) - a magnificent specimen of this species occurs on Kinka Beach area to which I have already referred - also Pink Walnut (Endiandra Sieberi) and Weeping Cabbage Palm (Livistona Decipiens). This mix would provide the protection that is sensibly sought by the Mulambin Beach residents. In addition, all the above species have value for resident birds. The Capricorn Coast has a wealth of bird life, but, species are disappear-

ing due to the gradual clearing of native vegetation. This has become very apparent during the five years plus I have been living at Kinka Beach and keeping records of the bird population. The shire council should take every opportunity to treasure the bird life - which is not only a tourist attraction, but also for the usefulness of the birds themselves in controlling the insects. Coconut Palms have little food value for our native birds, and they do have a reputation for harbouring cockroaches. Therefore they do not provide a sensible alternative to a mixed planting of native trees. - (Mrs) F M Crawford.

Three species of birds lost because hollow tree cut

WITH regard to James Hill's comments "Back of the Mirror", as the wildlife preservation society member with the greatest interest in birdlife, I wish to remark on his view that to build a house you remove trees and birds nests, but then completing your building, you plant more trees and back come the birds. Unfortunately things are not so simple as that, as my experience during the past five years at Kinka Beach has proven. When we moved in, there were birds of 10 different species nesting in all directions around us. The loss of a single tree, complete with nesting hollows to make room for a house opposite us, means that we no longer have nesting Dollarbirds, Pale-headed Rosellas or Blue-winged Kookaburras. They will not return to this particular place during my lifetime, because they need the hollows found in older trees! Also, birds that shun close proximity to people - flycatchers, whistlers and some finches - are not seen so frequently these days. I no longer hear owls calling at night or see Crested Hawks nesting in a neighbour's garden. True, some birds learn to accept our presence and benefit from well stocked gardens - such as sunbirds and several species of honeyeaters, and sparrows. The diversity of bird species however is gradually lost. - Molly Crawford, 6 Natalie Place, Kinka Beach.

Coast Toastmasters gain thirds SPEECH quality was high at the Northern Division Toastmasters Conference at Capricorn Iwasaki Resort on Saturday. The three Capricorn Coast Toastmaster competitors gained two third places. In the International Speech Contest, with nine speakers, Glynis Cumming's theme was `I'll take romance' and gained her a third. Morag Clay was placed third in the Evaluation Speech Contest from the 10 speakers. Sally Tickle took part in the Humorous Speech Contest with `Women's work is never done'. The humorous section speeches were presented before dinner. Sally expanded her theme to include shopping as a stimulation of the economy. There were eight entries in that section. The first and second placegetters go to Brisbane in May for the the District/Downunder Convention. That convention is winners of all Australia/New Zealand and South Pacific competitions. The winner of that convention then goes to the international contest in America in August.

St James bowls

Landholders querying council's rights on signs

ST JAMES Indoor Bowling Club's new president Joan Dobby, extended a warm welcome to 18 indoor bowlers from OBI club Rockhampton. After a happy evening of bowling the visiting team was successful with 103 points to St James 87. The monthly meeting is at 7pm on Monday, March 6, with bowls starting at 7.30pm.

LANDHOLDERS have queried whether it is legal for Livingstone Shire Council to charge them for advertising hoardings erected on their properties ... and Cr Ron Landsberg said some big property owners were prepared to take the matter

Mirror Classifieds work - just $3

to court.

He was commenting on a report submitted to council on "the legality of charging for advertising signs, in the light of complaints from various members of the public". Shire clerk Jim Brown told council in the report that chapter four of the council's by-laws contained the enabling provisions concerning advertising devices. Part 4 related to construction standards of advertising hoardings and part six related to licensing.

Council's policy statement Advertising Signs and Devices was developed to assist council in determining applications for new advertising signs. "The chief problems encountered in recent times stem from the fact that the provisions of the by-law and policy have not been enforced consistently and licensing was allowed to lapse completely about five years ago," Mr Brown said. Council had been progressively catching up on the backlog and establishing proper records, control and follow-up. It was anticipated council would be in a position to send out licensing renewal application forms in advance on July 1 this year. "Annual licensing is necessary to provide for

the sytematic control and inspection of all signs the shire and a reasonable level of fee is necess, to ensure that the user-pays principle is maintained," Mr Brown said. Cr Landsberg said he did not think the report was what had been asked for at the previous meeting. He felt the report should have dealt with matters such as going onto other people's land and charging for it. Shire chairman Cr John Bowen said fees were necessary to see that signs were erected properly. Cr Landsberg said some landholders were querying whether council could legally charge them and some were prepared to take it to court. Cr Bowen suggested council could save them some money by sending them council's by-laws.

CAPRICORN Coast Junior Rugby League sign-on in the mini and mod competition for under seven to under 12 was a success. Twenty-six players registered as well as a number of adult members at Saturday afternoon's sign-on. A follow up sign-on will be held after the swimming and junior cricket seasons. "Saturday's sign-on was held to take advantage of the Brisbane Broncos visit so any intending junior players would have a chance to meet them," publicity officer Paul Nugent said. "We don't want to encroach on the juniors other sports. So a followup sign-on will be held after those sports have finished their seasons." Mr Nugent said a clinic for intending coaches has been organised. "Coaches and other organisers will attend the clinic so they can be accredited. They will be taught how to cope, teach, train and care for young league players. "The team will then be allocated and training and games will start." Junior play is non-competitive with adults supervising all games. Shirts and footballs are supplied by the committee.

Bits and Pieces FAI trophy day has first win

Hole-in-one for Woodbridge

BITS and Pieces secured their first win for the season on Wednesday night in the A grade squash fixtures played at the Capricorn Coast Squash Centre. They narrowly defeated former seconds placed Saints and Sinners, two rubbers each, eight games each, 126 points to 115.

Chris Briggs is starting to strike form and applied the pressure to Bernie Lacey to win in three for Bits and Pieces. A grade Rockhampton player Jeff Lamb played as a reserve at number one for Saints and Sinners and was unfortunate to over-extend himself early in the fifth, going down to John Briggs 32 points to 44. Gordon Roberts excelled by taking the first game from Tony Smith, but as the match wore on Gordon found his legs no match for Tony's accuracy. Danny Tanks continues to steamroll the opposition.

"TAB assistant general manager Peter Lamb last week advised that TAB equipment, such as ticketing machine and monitors have been dispatched and he was confident they will be in places within a few days. . "There are some TAB lines already on course and Telecom is working with us to complete this landline work. Telecom has a great workload at the moment, but they are certainly doing their best for us." A $7000 loan for the TAB buildina at Tyrer Park was obtained from the Westpac°Bank and

Swimming club hosts successful Coast carnival CAPRICORN Coast Swimming Club hosted a successful sprint and relay carnival on Saturday. The Coast members swam well and won several medals. Patsy Findlay took out the nine year age aggregate. A large number of Coast relay teams won medals. "It was encouraging to see the very young ones swimming so well, as well as the older children," president Anne Novak said. "I wish to thank the club executive and committee members and the large band of hard working parents for making the carnival the success it was.

EMU PARK Emus rugby league reserves continued their winning form when they accounted for the Emerald side 17-14. The match was played in front of a big crowd at the Emu Park Cricket Ground. "The interest and support the Emus have generated has to be seen to be believed. It is simply fantastic," publicity officer Jeff Quigley said. The game was played under hot conditions which made the going extremely tough for the bigger forwards. Emerald opened the scoring and was able to capitalise on some poor Park defence. Emerald's big centre was given enough room to bust through some timid defence and score out wide after only seven minutes of play. "Their conversion attempt was unsuccessful but the fact that they scored so early and so easily put the shivers down the backs of our supporters," he said. But the gloom was short lived when the wiley Jimmy 'Jazz' Pendergast displayed some ex. ceptional individual brillance to stand up four players before crossing under thepost. Brad Emmertt added the extras to give the home side a six points to four lead. With the evergreen Roscoe Fordham calling the shots in the backs and Matt Trimms directing things in the engine room the Park boys started to turn the screws. Continual pressure was rewarded when big Kent Svendsen accepted a sweet pass off Trimms to score midway between the post and the corner. Pendergast missed the conversion and the home team went to the break leading 10-4. Immediately after halftime Kirk Doak stretched the Park's lead to 11-4 when he landed a towering field goal. "Some of the crowd reckoned it was the best field goal seen at Emu Park for years. "The stewards were calling for a swab as the wheels fell off the Park's wagon." Emerald scored two quick tries in a short period of time and both were from basic errors from the home side. When the Emerald kicker

converted the last try from the sideline it looked as though the Park was looking at its first taste of defeat. With the Emus trailing by 14-11 they set about to rectify the problem at hand. With introduction of the kick and chase game the Emus were able to keep the visitors confined in their own quarter. Burly Brett Svendsen was leading by example as he continually busted the defence. With 10 minutes remaining he was brought down close to the line after yet another bullocking run. Pendergast brought the house down when he followed Trimms through an opening near the centre of Emerald's quarter. Trimms served up a good pass which Jimmy gratefully accepted. With three defenders hanging off him, he was able to ground the ball over the line and in full view of the referee. With Kirk Doak's successful conversion the Park had hit the front by 17-14. The Emus continued to apply the pressure right up until the fulltime hooter but the score remained unchanged. "It was a very good win but the boys made it hard for themselves with too many silly mistakes." Best players for Emu Park were Brett Svendsen, Jim Pendergast, Kent Svendsen, Shane' Omara, Kirk Doak, Roscoe Fordham and Matt Trimms. "There were some very good first up performances by Shane Omara and Kelvin West,- Mr Quigley said. "There is still a long way to go for this team but if they keep putting in, come March 15 they should be a pretty good all round team. "The Emu Park committee thanks all the women who assisted at our ground during the game. It was great to see. How about a ladies auxiliary? "New club membership cards are out now. Why not become a financial foundation member of the greatest little club on the Coast. "Contact our president Eddie Mallard or myself if you are interested," Mr Quigley said.

OUTRIGHT LOSS ALTHOUGH Capricorn Coast third grade cricket team led Allenstown on first innings, the Coast side was eventually beaten outright. This was partly due to insufficient players on the second day when the side only fielded eight players. Don Letchford maintained his good form with a fine 38 out of the side's 73 in the second innings. D May gained 17 and newcomer G Hogg, scored 16, enabled Coast to reach 91 in the first innings. A complete analysis of the match was unavailable because of an incomplete scorebook.

Richest race of year next Wednesday

the Ktivist

YEPPOON Amateur Racing Club stages its richest race of the year on Wednesday, March 1, when a top field of two-year-olds line up for the Foster's Silver Bootee Stakes. A top field is guaranteed because prizemoney has been lifted by $5000 from $10,000 to $15,000. The winner will take home $10,000 and a trophy. There will also be a qualifying division of the Foster's Country Cup. It's a five-race meeting with betting on local and southern races.

"OLD BALDY" is known for his mechanical ability ... it just doesn't exist. He's been the bane of Graham McLaughlin's life because he's forever taking his lawn mower and whipper snipper into Yeppoon Small Motors with the complaint that they won't start. Ninetynine times out of one hundred, Graham slowly pulls the rope and the motor bursts into life. Graham's wife, Sue, spends a lot of her time talking to "OB's" wife, Suzy while "OB" talks to Graham. Anyway, Sue and Graham spent Wednesday night at work repairing the Capricorn Coast Mirror's generator. They knew what was wrong with it but "OB" had walked within 50 paces of it and that was enough to cause strife. Anyway, about 9pm it's firing and Sue delivered it to the Mirror. Believe it or not, "OB" pulled the rope and it went, first pop. Sue was thanked profusely because "OB" was worried about a storm. The Mirror's computers went on strike on Tuesday night over the storm and he wasn't risking it on production night. Anyway, Sue explained what had been done, told "OB" how to work the generator ... then announced that someone else knew less about motors than he did. Then, in the best Alfred Hitchcock tradition, she left, without revealing who it is! • •• BY the way, Sue's obviously into farming ... she left two plough trails up the Mirror driveway as she drove out. Wonder why she was in such a hurry to get away from "OB"! Was it because "OB" was fiddling with the generator? • ••

Seconds lose second in succession

CAPRICORN Coast second grade cricket team lost its second game in succession playing East's on Saturday. Although the losses have been by narrow margins, the side would like to approach the semi-finals in a winning sequence and is resigned to putting in much more work in the coming weeks. Coast batted first and was aided by a great start from S Pidcock and D Wetzler who scored a 57 opening partnership. S Pidcock eventually scored 31 and D Wetzler 34, B West added 17, the only notable scores. Coast's middle order once again didn't offer much assistance compiling 8-119 from 41 overs. Easts players were in early trouble due to some fine bowling from K Ogilvie but managed to struggle on, passing the required score off 39 overs. I Anderson took 3-31; K Ogilvie, 2-29; J Dawes 1-20 and W Kitchener 1-31.

RHODES Watson is certainly making a name for himself. He spent all week showing every customer his new pair of rugby boots (they're about two feet long and as wide as a car tyre). But his best trick came about when he dug up his old boots from last year in front of a customer ... Rhodes dug his hand inside and, like a magician, pulled out a pair of socks that had been there since the last game of the season. The customer, who was down wind, left. The Mirror wishes to offer sincere apologies!!! •

ROY SORENSEN is one of the unsung heroes of the CCTO's Information Centre. He volunteers his services on Tuesday and Friday afternoons every second week and fills in if others are delayed. Among the information he's had to dispense was the location of 38 kids who were holidaying here from Bundaberg. He didn't have a clue about where they might be but he jumped in his car and set off to fmd them. Using his head, he quickly found them at the National Fitness Centre. He raced back to the centre and told the caller the news. Er, just in case you're wondering ... no, Roy didn't leave the caller hanging on the phone. He phoned him back! •

YEPPOON RSL stalwart Hugh Cochrane spent weeks organising the conference held in Yeppoon Town Hall on the weekend and one of the highlights was a group photograph taken on the steps at the lunch break. Suzy asked Hugh to identify the group and as he was about to walk out the door, he took a quick look. He seemed to puzzle over the pic then asked the strangest question ... "aren't I in the picture?" Suzy looked at it, saw Hugh, pointed him out and Hugh said "I thought that was my mate from Emerald!"
