ABOVE: While the Capricorn Coast will be under the spotlight on Monday, Kinka Beach and The Causeway will receive more than a fair share of the attention when the Premier and ministers see erosion in action.

Cabinet visit puts Coast in spotlight STATE Cabinet's visit on Monday will put the spotlight on the Capricorn Coast. The Brisbane media covering the Coast Cabinet meeting will inevitably be drawn to various activities which will result in wide exposure. Brisbane television viewers are bound to see at least snippets of footage on such events as the "erosion watch" at Kinka Beach and The Causeway; the earth-turning by Premier Mike Ahern at the Rosslyn Bay Harbour marina development; the official welcome lunch at Bayview Tower and flashes of the scenic beauty that only the Capricorn Coast can provide. As well, there's always the Cabinet meeting itself. It's heady stuff for the Coast ... Mr Ahern and his Ministers will be visible to everyone at some stage. So will the entourage that brings the total number visiting Yeppoon to more than 70. Travelling with the Premier and Ministers will be security personnel, pilots and a vast army of public servants. Waiting to greet them will be an even bigger army of Coast public figures and private citizens. Some will be greeting the Cabinet visitors with one hand outstretched for a handshake and the other palm upward for a hand-out. No doubt some people will regard the visit as a "cargo cult" where visitors from foreign parts drop in and shower locals with money. No doubt many will be disappointed. The Coast is very likely to gain directly from

the Cabinet visit. School children will probably hail the Ministers as gods if the traditional day off is awarded. Livingstone Shire councillors will no doubt hope for an early answer on a string of requests to the government for help. There are at least three major projects that Cabinet can "green-light" while in town ... Emu Park sewerage; Kinka Beach erosion and a new bridge across the Causeway. Various Ministers have already been told about the need for special financial help to set up a sewerage scheme in Emu Park. Council delegations have been v is iting Brisbane in recent months providing a string of figures to back up claims for a grant or an interest-free loan similar to the one provided for the water treatment plant. Whatever Cabinet decides, assuming it's along the lines of a grant or cheap loan, it could be announced on Monday afternoon. Similar expectations could be held for a $200,000 project to combat Kinka Beach erosion. Mr Ahern, various Ministers and Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton will join council officials and Capricomia Institute experts for a"beachwatch and briefing" on Monday from 7.30am to 8.15am. A $200,000 scheme has been proposed as the answer to tides devouring the Kinka Beach dunes and threatening the Scenic Highway. Capricorn Coast Tourist Organisation secretary Laurie Killeen (a Kinka Beach resident) will

be organising a group of concerned citizens to greet the party at the Causeway on Monday morning. He said he was circulating all homes in the Kinka Beach area to organise as many people as possible to put the area's case for special help. This could be the project that gets the nod from Cabinet because it's been a running sore for years ... and it appears the State Government's actions decades ago in building The Causeway could be blamed for the problem. In the same area, the need to upgrade the Causeway bridge and viaduct will come under scrutiny. This is another project with obvious importance because it, too, has been an ages-old problem. The cry that "someone's going to get killed" cannot be ignored forever ... because, quite frankly, someone is going to get killed. There's no pedestrian pathway and the narrow bridge is a haven for illegal fishermen looking for a meal. Then again, the issue that also deserves support is anew bridge near the Showground. It's narrow, it's dangerous, it's used by thousands of schoolchildren each year ... and it's in the middle of Yeppoon. Cabinet is likely, even certain, to leave something behind as a form of goodwill. Whatever that is will be most welcome ... as will the publicity the Capricorn Coast receives from the visit. Whatever happens, the Capricorn Coast can't lose!

Marvellous opportunity to meet the Ministers MEMBER for Broadsound Denis Hinton described a Meet-the People barbecue to be held on Sunday as a "wonderful Opportunity for Capricorn Coast residents to mix informally with Premier Mike Ahern and Cabinet Ministers. The combined National Party branches of the Capricorn Coast are hosting the barbecue at the C:vee Bay Hall from 5.30pm.

"It will be a great event for the Capricorn Coast and is a marvellous opportunity for people to meet Cabinet members and get their point across on the various issues they may wish to discuss," he said. "It is an enormous advantage to have a Country Cabinet Meeting, whereby the Cabinet has a first-hand look at local problems and issues. It goes a long way toward getting these issues solved." Mr Hinton said he was expecting a large crowd to attend. "Everyone is welcome," he said.

Capricorn Coast Mirror March

ALP candidate issues his Broadsound shopping list DESCRIBING next week's Country Cabinet Meeting as a hollow political stunt ALP endorsed candidate for Broadsound Jim Pearce has submitted his shopping list for Broadsound. "It should be apparent to all that the Ahern Cabinet is coming to Yeppoon because they are desperate to retain Broadsound, but no matter how much pork-barrelling they do, they won't make up for the past years of National Party neglect," Mr Pearce said. "A Labor Government will allocate funds equitably. We have our priorities for Broadsound and I suggest that as a bare minimum, the current Government should provide S3.2 million towards the Emu Park sewerage scheme. "I have had discussions with local groups and I know the Livingstone Shire Council will agree such a development is long overdue. It cannot wait any longer." Mr Pearce said he had already called on the Government to renovate the Yeppoon Police Station. "But there is a crying need for additional police staffing. The population, with special circumstances of a tourist locality such as ours, more than justifies the provision of a 24-hour manned police station," he said. "Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton and the Ahern Government will be shown to be completely out of touch if they do not act to support our overworked and understaffed police in Yeppoon. "Since my endorsement in December I have travelled extensively throughout the electorate and have witnessed glaring neglect in areas especially roads and schools. "I am well aware of what needs to be done in the western part of the electorate." He said an immediate and adequate contribution by the State Government for the Dingo Mt Flora Road is urgently required. "The waste of taxpayer money on the BluffFarnborough Road only serves to highlight the Government's misplaced priorities. People live beyond the Iwasaki Resort and money needs to be spent to improve the Byfield Road." Mr Pearce saidthar as a member of the Goss ALP team he is prepared to be reasonable in all things.

Goss shadow hits phantom SHADOW Minister for Finance and Regional Development, and Member for Cairns Keith De Lacy visited the Capricorn Coast yesterday, Thursday. He talked to residents, business people and local ALP branch members about regional development. Mr De Lacy addressed Coast business people at a luncheon and social hour at La Bamba later will attend a barbecue for Branch members and supporters. "Mr De Lacy is one of the senior Shadow Ministers in the ALP team, and as spokesman on finance and regional development, would have a key economic portfolio in a future Goss Government," Capricorn Coast ALP branch president David Timbs. Mr De Lacy said it was significant that the portfolios of finance and regional development had been linked together in the Goss Shadow Ministry. "Wayne Goss is committed to the economic development of all regions in Queensland, which he sees as the building blocks of the overall state economy," Mr De Lacy said. "By creating a separate Department of Regional Development and linking it with the Department of Finance, Mr Goss has ensured that it will always retain priority ranking within the Ministry. "This contrasted sharply with the present Government, where there was no Department of Regional Development," he said. "They have a Department of Northern Development but this is a phantom department it has no budget, no programmes, and has been nothing more than a propaganda unit for the relevant Minister in North Queensland."

Nev & Carol Wel are's

"My clainis for Broadsound are not extravagant. They are a bare minimum to achieve what Broadsound electors need. "It is not good enough to see our beachfront being further eroded while the Beach Protection Authority and Government remain inactive," Mr Pearce said. "We have recently seen Environment and Tourism Minister Muntz open a Tourist Information Centre towards which his Government contributed nothing. That is not good enough. "As a candidate and with the support of my colleagues I make a commitment that an ALP Government will relieve the local businesses of the debt burden they carry for this public facility. "I appreciate the desperate position the Ahern Government is in across the State and I welcome next week's cabinet meeting if it benefits the long neglected electors of Broadsound. "The priorities I have listed this week are a bare minimum. This is not an ambit claim. Even if we gain the things I have outlined it will be too little too late, but we won't accept anything less."

Anzac Day on April 25. Armistice Day November 11 and Vietnam Veterans Day on August 18. "We do not lay wreaths on any other days. There is no reason to do so," Mr Savage said. "We have had people approaching members of our legion and castigating them for the Nv-reath-laying. All I can say is that we definitely did not have anything to do with it."

REAL Estate agents will be offered computerised short property searches by Livingstone Shire Council as soon as an appropriate charge has been calculated. This was decided at council's February meeting after a report was received from shire accountant Denis Murphy. He said an approach had been made by a real estate agent for council to supply a database so the, agent could access the name, address, property description, street address and valuation of a property without having to refer to council each time the name and address of the owner was required. Mr Murphy said council now charged $7 for up to five searches and an extra $5 for each additional search (owners name/address or zoning). A rate search cost $14 and a full search $50. The agent's request had been made "some time ago" and before referring it to council for a decision, Mr Murphy said "we had to ensure we could supply selected fields only of our database and on a regular update basis". "The supply of this data without being capable of updating quickly would be more dangerous than beneficial to an estate agent," he said. "It would seem appropriate that the data would be supplied and updated by council and be used only on a one site basis with an annual licence fee." He suggested updates could be piovided on a six-monthly basis in conjunction with the issue of rates. Mr Murphy said he had also been asked to supply the software necessary to access the data supplied by council. He said it could be supplied subject to council's approval. "One of the benefits that could flow to council through the release of such data would be fewer inquiries daily which would reduce administration costs associated with short property searches," he said. Full property searches would still have to be conducted through existing channels. The recommendation was that council create the database for release and that the annual licence fee be $500. It was also recommended council consent to the accountant supplying his personal software package to access the database. Cr Maurie Webb wanted assurance, which was given, that the information be available to all agents, not just the one who had applied. Shire chairman Cr John Bowen said agents could now get computer sheets of every sale registered in the Valuer-General's office. The cost was 300 an entry. Information supplied was the seller, the buyer, the price and date of contract. This was now available and it would be available by downloading from a computer. He agreed with the recommendation to council to supply agents with the information they sought ... but he queried the price. He thought council

would not be charging enough. He told councillors that real estate agents had to update their files every month ... "20 agents with 20 girls updating". "I'm only interested in the money we (the council) can make," he said. "I think we need a financial model so we can establish a fair market price." .He said it had taken council years and "many hundreds of thousands" to create its database and he said it should be sold for the right price. Council should look at the alternative for the agents, which was $3000 from the Valuer-General's Department based on 300 and entry for Livingstone Shire. Mr Murphy said he had suggested the update would cost $500 but Cr Bowen asked what should be the charge for the up-front figures. "We're in the business of making money out of data," he said. He suggested council could raise $40,000 by selling the data. His thoughts were cut short by Cr Roy Wall saying ratepayers distrusted council. "We conduct 50 per cent of our business behind closed doors. Now we're handing out information," he said. Replying, Cr Bowen said he did not think council was discussing 50 per cent of its business in committee (behind closed doors). Council resolved to create the database but will decide later what to charge for the information. Cr Glenda Mather had her name recorded against the decision.

Seaweek plans APRIL 15 to 23 is Seaweek ... celebrated Australia wide to focus attention on the enjoyment of the sea and its resources. Central Queensland's Seaweek co-ordinatof Alice Kay is based at the Queensland National Parks and Wildlife Service. Seaweek is funded by the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority so that communities throughout Australia can celebrate the sea. "The idea is to focus attention on the enjoyment of the sea and its resources," Alice Kay said. "It will encourage safe and sensible use of all the sea has to offer in recreation, employment and quality of life. "We are developing a community programme for that week. Some of the activities planned are posters, essay and photograph competitions based on a sea theme." She said there would be liaison with surf and sailing clubs, the coastguard, Queensland Recreation Council, State Emergency Service and other organisations involved with the sea. "We hope to have activities arranged during Seaweek for Capricorn Coast residents."

114 Safety Houses from north to south ABOUT 114 homes from Zilzie to Farnborough are Safety Houses. Safety Houses are a refuge for children on their way to and from school if they are approached by a stranger or feel threatened. The Yeppoon and Emu Park Safety House programmes started in 1985 as part of a statewide programme. It is an extension of the earlier 'Stranger Danger' scheme. People who are interested in having their home classified as a 'safety house' have to fill in an application ana are interviewed to ensure the children's safety. Zilzie to The Causeway is organised through the Emu Park Safety House Programme and from there to Farnborough through the Yeppoon programme. Yeppoon Safety House annual general meeting is at 7.30pm on Tuesday, March 7 at Yeppoon Pre-School.

Emu Park Safety House annual general meeting is at 730pm on Wednesday, March 8 at Emu Park State Primary School.

Opposite the Railway Hotel

YEPPOON Fruit Growers are alarmed at proposals contained in a State Government

green paper which could severely restrict the economic operation of many small farmers on the Capricorn Coast. Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton has arranged for a deputation from the Yeppoon Fruit Growers Tree Crop Sub Committee to meet with Primary Industry Minister Neville Mr Harper when the Country Cabinet meets in Yeppoon on March 6. "I am alarmed at proposals in the green paper which will, if implemented, severely curtail crop spraying operations as it would be illegal to allow spray drift to encroach on neighbouring properties without prior notification and permission," Mr Hinton said. "At this stage it is only a green paper and not legislation and I would doubt if some of the proposals are sufficiently practical to be included in legislation. "I am pleased to be able to support the Yeppoon Fruit Growers and arrange direct discussions between them and Mr Harper". "In April a further green paper will be released by the State Government proposing 'Right to Farm' legislation, modelled on legislation currently utilised in Canada and the USA," he said. "This legislation will give protection to farming operations threatened by encroaching urban development and establish "the prior right to exist."

Suyio *Via Ceil6teige A GOOD roll up at Yeppoon State High School Parents and Citizens Association's annual general meeting showed Capricorn Coast parents are interested in their children's high school education. "The attendance also proved the parents are interested in helping the association improve the school's facilities," publicity officer David Goodwin said. Jack Cowie, as retiring president, outlined some of the improvements to the school's facilities during his time in office: a new machinery shop, new library, ground beautification (an on-going project involving students, parents and teachers), repainting of the school and construction of the assembly hall. Planning for the assembly hall's official opening started with some good suggestions from students representatives, Sara-Jane Bergman and Leonie Ryan, who were welcomed to the meeting. The meeting ended with a conducted tour of the new hall. 1989 office-bearers: president, Bruce McGregor; secretary, David Goodwin; treasurer Duncan Stewart; vice presidents, Bob Walls and Geoff Cue. The next general meeting is on Tuesday, March 14, at 7.30pm in the high school library. *** WOW! What a day! That's the only way to describe February 22 for the Emu Park Pensioners League. The Cultural Hall was packed, it was hard to estimate the crowd, but suffice to say, buses brought visitors from Yeppoon, Rockhampton and Mt Morgan to the cent sale, zone meeting and social and members are sure everyone had a great day. Emu Park turned on the hospitality they are renowned for and no-one was disappointed. The cent sale was a great success mostly due to the lovely donations and members thank everyone for the quality prizes. Particular thanks was given to local businesses who gave prizes and to the ladies in the kitchen who coped so well and happily with such a big crowd. The zone delegates were treated to a lovely lunch, after which everyone settled back for the social. The Evergreens opened with love songs especially for Valentine's Day. Artists included Alf Marcombe, charming as ever, Mrs Hall, Pearl Curry, who tap-danced with energy on a very hot day ... members don't know liow Pearl does it. Hugh Leslie played a mouth organ medley; Joe McIntyre did one of his 'Albert' recitations; Alec Bacon was popular with a couple of singalongs; Norma Briskin always a hit; Beth Lever sang sweetly; Jack Flanagan, Dot Close and Peg Stevens sang a lovely duet. John Smyth did a smooth rendition of Galway Bay, followed by Tom Lever. Jean Dendle had everyone rocking to Blue Moon. The Bauhinia group did an hilarious medley of songs dressed in colourful 'bird' outfits, and the finale ... 'Who killed Cock Robin', had everyone roaring with laughter. However, all good things must come to an end and the visitors departed with Emu Park president Stan Nelson thanking everyone who attended and issued an invitation to "come back and see us soon". The socials presented by the league are free to all and are held on the last Wednesday in the month. Next social will have an Easter theme, go along and have a good time.

FORTY-TWO pensioners attended the February meeting of the Yeppoon Pensioners League at Yeppoon Town Hall last Thursday. The meeting heard reports of the zone meeting held at Emu Park and the meeting to elect a steering committee to gauge the feeling for the formation of a University of the Third Age from Kath Mcllwraith and Bill Shuttlewood, respectively. A cent sale and hoy will be held in Yeppoon Town Hall on Thursday, May 18. A bus will run to Rockhampton on Monday, March 20. Inquiries for seats to Pat King, 39 2109. The league's March social is on Tuesday, March 14 starting at fpm and the next meeting is on Thursday, March 23 starting at 2pm. Both activities are in Yeppoon Town Hall. *** BYFIELD Historical Society's next meeting is on Saturday, March 4. Inquiries, please phone Mary O'Brien, 35 1169. *** DENISE Nicholas has an unusual job ... she spends a large part of her week looking for friends. She is the Rockhampton region co-ordinator for the Volunteer Friends Programme. Denise's job is to find friends for people with an intellectual disability who have difficulties seeking friendship for themselves. "The Volunteer Friends Programme was set up under the Intellectually Handicapped Citizens Council of Queensland because it was recognised that everyone has a need for friendship," she said. "It is rather unusual that an organisation becomes involved in creating a friendship between two people. "Creating friendships and enjoying them is generally a very spontaneous and natural part of life. "There are good reasons for the programme. Most of us tend to shy away from things that are different and sadly, from people who are different too. "This often includes people with an intellectual disability. We don't choose them as friends because we don't know how to go about it or what to expect." Denise said the reality for many people with an intellectual disability is that they have no friends ... and that's where Denise and the Volunteer Friends Programme comes in. "We want to recruit volunteers to befriend people living in Rockhampton and the Capricorn Coast. "For a start we try and make it as easy as possible for friendship to flourish by careful matching. "We consider all the `ordinary' aspects of life before we introduce two people, like what time you'd like to volunteer, family commitments, interests and hobbies." An information evening on the Volunteer Friends Programme will be held on Tuesday, March 14 at 7.30pm, first floor conference room, Bolsover Street Campus, Rockhampton TAFE. Denise has over 30 people who need a friend. People interested in inquiring about the Volunteer Friends Programme can contact Denise Nicholas on 34 4130 or the Intellectually Handicapped Citizens Council (008) 177 581 at the cost of a local call. *** WOMEN in the Arts Festival in Rockhampton has two Coast potters and a woman who specialises in handpainting. Pat Martin of Cawarral and Nicole Ray, Yeppoon are the potters and Lisa Regeur, also of Yeppoon, handpaints originals on linen, tshirts, cards and soaps. They will be exhibiting at St Aubin's Village March 1 for the month with displaysand ad working demonstrations on Saturdays and Sundays. Included are members of the Rockhampton Spinning Club, dried flowers and basketware by Suzie Cugola, gum-nut creations from Nanette Seppings, tapestry, painting and patchwork. Pat Martin will conduct children's workshops every Sunday from 1 lam and this Sunday the children will be making face masks.

HAS anyone lost a female bull terrier about two-years-old. She is white with one brown ear and has brown patches. The dog control officer picked her up in James Street, Yeppoon about three weeks ago. She has been fretting and is obviously someone's loved pet. The dog control officer can be contacted by phoning the Shire office, 39 3388, or going to the depot-between 2pm and 4pm on weekdays. If you are really desperate, contact him after hours at 39 6224 or 39 6202. Of course, if she had been registered it would have been a lot easier to find the owner and the dog wouldn't have had to fret.

Road signs act as blinkers' I WOULD like to draw to council's and the general public's attention a dangerous stretch of road. The primary problem involves traffic departing from the centre parking area which exists adjacent to the Bakehouse Gym building in upper Normanby Street. The departing vehicles drive into a stream of two-way traffic both above and below the centre parking bay. Several people involved in accidents have stated they believed the lower road to be a oneway road continuing from Mary Street. This action is made more dangerous because the centre parking bay has long low road signs at each end of the bay which effectively act as visual blinkers, inhibiting a comprehensive view of the road - thus drivers must frequently nudge their way out onto the active roadway before completely obtaining vision. This exercise was responsible for two collisions alone on Saturday, February 18, one of which had damages well exceeding S1500. Several days earlier another smash occurred

in identical uncircumstances and many near misses too numerous to mention. In the interest of consistent logical motoring perhaps the area could be made safer if the one-way left carriage way, which exists from Mary Street, could continue along around McDonald Street - the lower arm of the roadway finishing at the intersection adjacent to the Co-op. The upper arm of Normanby Street could remain in its two-way form. The offending road signs which are presently placed at the centre parking bay would merely have to be heightened above driving vision level to alleviate the problem to a large degree. In the interest of the many people who use this section of the roadway to attend various businesses: eg., medical, chiropractical, dental, gymnasuim and beauty therapy services; it is hoped some constructive decisions can be made to make this a far safer area than it is at present. - Jenny Shepherd, Bakehouse Beauty Clinic, 54 Normanby Street, Yeppoon. •

'Mining will cut water to trickle'

"WHY is it better to be bombed then mined?" This question is as absurd as the Pivot Group's proposal. The army has been in Shoalwater Bay for almost 30 years and we still have our water supply. Five years of mining will reduce the water supply to a trickle, or none at all if it doesn't rain for two weeks at any time. When it does rain the silt will clog up the works. After almost 30 years of army occupation Shoalwater Bay is still there in rather better condition than it was in 1965 under grazing leases. After five years of sandmining the whole coastal dune area will be obliterated, along with thewater catchment (the dunes) and army and shire roads will be wrecked. Pivot will shoot through with the loot, leaving us with the devastation to clean up forever. Shoalwater Bay Training Area is the major defence training area in Australia, as it offers air space, sea space and ground space for combined allied forces exercises involving the army, navy and airforce. There are only two impact sites whete bombs are dropped. Bombs are definitely not dropped indiscriminately over the whole area. Shoalwater Bay's large area, diverse land forms and veaetation provide various different natural areas for our defence forces to train in. The CSIRO works with the army to control and advise on the correct use of each area, to avoid over-use on any one area or any impact on fragile areas. When an area lias been used it is rested to regenerate. The' defence forces have no intention of ever bombing up the entire area, as this would render it useless for its prime purpose; that of providing training in natural environments. Now we have the true facts from reputable scientists; individuals, media and council members, can no longer be excused, through ignorance, for making ridiculous statements based on the appalling draft EIS. • Neither can they be excused for allowing smooth-talking Pivot representatives to persuade them to put separate interests before their own people's interests. - Robin Healy, MS 142, By-field.

Ghost Bat has right to life IN his letter H M Brownsdon asks if someone will tell him/her the use of the Ghost Bat. I would like to answer with a question. Why does an animal have to be of use? Of use for whom? In my opinion the Ghost Bat, in common with all other animals, has a right to life and they are all part of a chain of animals and plants that keep things going.

'Sheer lunacy to mine this area' IN RESPONSE to your plea for reasons why people are protesting the proposed sandmining, I felt the need to reply. I am a Byfield resident, having owned land here for seven years. Together with my husband, we decided to give rural life a chance, with ideas of a small business in part to be dependent on tourism. We have two children and after arriving here three and a half years ago to live on our block we were suddenly confronted by the frustration, hard work and the beauty of living in the bush. I am totally amazed at the ignorance at some who brand country dwellers as a type of lower class citizen or dole bludger because we don't wish to join the rat race which can't even guarantee a job. Such small mindedness would never see the reality at the farm, which is plain and simple ... hard work! They think we must sit in a creek all day. Wouldn't it be wonderful! We in the country don't have all the automatic

pleasures of city folk. Power and water are often large and expensive problems, often shelving other dreams of self-sufficiency, that is, farming small crops, until they can be afforded. We don't even have a dump! Byfield residents must cart their rubbish 45 kilometres to Yeppoon dump. And then there's the road! This road is already used to its full capacity. Frequently used by all locals, logging trucks, forestry vehicles and trucks, building supply delivery vans, CEB, Telecom, school bus and council vehicles and then the tourists. On weekends every man and his dog comes down from Rockhampton and the Coast to swim in the creeks, go to Five Rocks or go pig hunting. terrifying to meet fast moving cars on this alard. It's worse still when you meet a group of cars and experience moments of blindness by the dust and it is torturous to have to sit behind a logging truck until you reach the bitumen. I think it utter madness to contemplate the socalled 80 extra vehicles a day - surely there will be more as.the project begins. To me, this will further isolate our lives, not wishing to take a death drive into town! What tourist, having ventured that far, would ever return again ... thus disadvantaging certain people reliant on the tourism trade. Of course the children are at worse risk than us all. They have to sit in a schoolroom close to this only road and have the constant noise abuse bombarded at them. As it is, the children find the dust a problem on the road. Their eyes get full of it and it makes riding a bike a misery. To have the added danger of being hit by a truck or negotiating quicklywhere to ride if two

trucks pass each other is an extra worry, not to mention the hazards of rocks hurled up by the trucks towards the children. Having been forced to wade through the Pivot sandmining proposal I find repeated discrepancies and feel much of it was used only to fill the pages. Obviously they don't even know what a dune is or how the water table is affected by these sensitive structures. This land, in the most part, is pristine, untouched, no roads and full of wonderful wilderness. Aboriginal sites have been found intact, back to when they were driven from their lands. The army hasn't decimated this area as we are led to believe. What point would the army have in practicing jungle warfare on a desert after the sandminers had gone through it? The best place to mine - if at all - would be the more southern beach areas. Leave the subsoils, dunes, rainforests and the beautiful Pearl Bay intact. Less damage to all wildlife would occur this way. Why is there almost no mention of radioactive tailings in the wake of this project. Surely we've all heard and seen of Byron Bay and other sandmining disasters and of the high incidence of leukaemia which accompanies it. Pivot talks of mining the area behind the dunes, the huge bowl where all our town waters are collected. It's crazy to believe that contamination won't' occur. I don't care how much money they've got, how many supposed jobs they've got to give, its sheer lunacy to mine such an environmentally sensitive area. Of course the Livingstone Shire Council can't commit itself to personal preferences, it sees the Byfield Road as a project they'd willingly pass on to anyone else - (Livingstone Shire chairman Cr) Bowen says "We do not want development at any price," but of course everything does have a price. I think it's too high a price. Do Yeppoon people really believe that these trucks aren't going to turn Yeppoon into a truckies town? Who is going to police these trucks? What's to stop them going to town for cigarettes, petrol and clogging up the beachfront while they get fish and chips? I am frustrated and desperately unhappy to think that this may eventuate and really spoil such a beautiful area. The tourist potential of the Shoalwater Bay area is in the same league as the Daintree something to be held on to before it is too late. A wonderful wilderness like nowhere else on earth. What terrific potential as a campers' paradise! Thisventure, if environmentally planned, would experience tremendous popularity with local and overseas visitors alike. I would prefer to see our unemployed working on this type of venture rather than sandmining our soil - raping our mother earth. Unfortunately, I have no financial or business interest which would make my complaints stand up and be heard. I have only the truth to make my comments upon. May commonsense prevail in this final decision by our government. - Helen Stickley, MS 142, Byfield.

‘Slash, burn, kill is NP attitude' RE H M Brownsdon's letter, issue 289 ... `Here we go again - howls of protest from greenies' must have sent a shudder through any normal thinking person. The Queensland National Party's record on conservation is deplorable and they cannot be trusted with our heritage. Their policy has been, and still is, slash, burn, kill in the pursuit of short-ternm employment. For this reason it is important to identify H M Brownsdon. Mrs Brownsdon is an obvious National Party supporter and mother of Garth Brownsdon who is on the Yeppoon branch National Party's executive. Mrs Brownsdon's attitude to conservation slash, burn, kill - is a direct reflection of National Party conservation policy.

Reliue the past at —


I'm one of the `greenie-conservationists' you wrote about Mrs Brownsdon, as if they were obscene words. I do not apologise for being concerned about our future. You are out of touch, as is the National Party, to public attitudes. The general public is not a mob of mindless, ill-educatta, uncaring people doing nothing and putting crosses on ballot papers every three years as they are told to do. The general public is concerned and, thankfully, today politically aware. I'm also a realist and a businessman dedicated to the development of our Coast, but not without careful forethought and planning. No-one cares more about the development of Queensland than the ALP, which has a plan for our future fitting all requirements - big business and environmental groups - which has been hailed by all concerned groups, not just big business, not just conservationists. At least the ALP has a documented policy on these issues. The National Party does not. Mrs Brownsdon used emotive statements referring to 'Fabians', 'God', 'POWs', 'conquerors', 'grandchildren' and 'foreign land ownership' in an effort to sway our thinking when it has nothing to do with her intentions which are to kill harmless little animals which are already in danger of extinction. After you rid the world of the Ghost Bat you can start on the koalas, kangaroos, wombats and all other animals that do not have a direct productive role. We could stuff them and sell them overseas and help our reduce our foreign debt by increasing exports. Paul Keating stand aside ... Mrs Brownsdon has the solution to save Australia. After we get rid of all the useless animals, we can then start on unproductive people. foreigners, the sick, elderly or the afflicted ... the list is endless. Your callous attitude to something helpless is frightening. You warn us about the Fabians. whoever they are, ruining Australia. People with attitudes likeyours are the oneswe have to worry about. You ask in your letter "will somebody tell me of what use is the Ghost Bat?" I will, and I hope vou learn something in addition to scientific facts such as compassion. consideration, commonsense and caring. The Ghost Bat is found only in discreet colonies in northern Australia and their numbers are decreasing. It is uniquely Australian as much as the koala, but much more rare. It's listed as a vulnerable species and is the largest carnivorous bat in the world. For this reason it is fascinating to people outside Australia and has the potential to become a major tourist attraction. The Ghost Bats of Mt Etna have featured in BBC World Life Magazine three times in the last year ... therefore we, on the Coast, have received an enormous amount of publicity. Chancen is a German nature magazine and had a five page colour spread on the Ghost Bats and Mt Etna three months ago. A London daily tabloid has a colour feature on the Ghost Bats and Mt Etna due out in a fortnight. The Ghost Bat has the most sensitive hearing of any land animal in the world and Professor J Pettigrew, Centre of Hearing Research Queensland University, has a captive colony of Ghost Bats at the university and is leading research with them to help deaf people hear. Is that enough to explain it to you Mrs Brownsdon? - Ross Dickson, Capricorn Coast ALP Branch secretary.

Singing Ships great day of bowls IT was a great day at Emu Park last Sunday when Biloela joined with Singing Ship Indoor Bowlers for a day of mix-in triples.

The team with the highest score was Len Kearney, Iris Smith and Dudley Courtman. Runners up were Lois Crockett, Brian Garvey and Doris Radecker. The sportsman's prize

Sparkling moments in rugby CAPRICORN Coast Rugby Union Club began its 1989 campaign on Wednesday night with a closely contested loss to 1988 grand finalist Institute. The first half produced some sparkling moments, culminating in a try to utility cum half Darkie McGuire, the try was converted by Wes Dawes. The young back row trio of Dawes, Bennett and Read created a number of scoring opportunities with some determined thrusts in the midfield. â&#x20AC;˘ The hard work put in by the tight forwards during the offseason was evident with their " greater mobility and speed to the breakdowns. Teâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;v Lucht slotted in well to the second row spik, will improve as the season progresses. New player Peter Lane displayed good skills and, combined with his ability to break the line, will be a valuable asset to the team. The second half saw a rejuvenated Institute strike back at Cap Coast. At half time Coast led with one try and a conversion. Final score: Institute 10 Cap Coast 6.

was won by John Smith, Jack Peake and Merle Sheridan. First prize in the raffle went to Jack Surman (Biloela) and Charlie Stratford (Singing Ship) won the second prize. "The day seemed to go too quickly, but we look forward to visiting Biloela later in the year," the publicity officer said. "This Saturday, March 4, is our monthly meeting starting at 1pm."

Cap Coast scored a resounding victory over Mt Morgan on Saturday, with a score of 26-4. The first half was very scrappy affair with neither team asserting authority. The second half began with a more resolute attitude from the Coast team, determined to make up for the lost opportunities in the first. The revival was led by big prop Mark Gilligan who powered through the crumbling Mt Morgan defence. Wes Dawes provided some quality lineout ball, and in combination with Michael Lucht provided dominance in the lineout. The backline, although disrupted by the absence of Nick Corbett began to function more effectively, with burly pivot Gerand Read as a link man for the backline. Matthew Boyd is continuing to grow in confidence in his new reele as fullback and the club is endowed with two excellent finishers in Mark Thompson and Mick Vaughan. Darkie McGuire scampered for two tries, Peter Lane one, Brad Flynn one and Wes Dawes one try and two conversions.

CQRL president: It's over to you Yeppoon

CENTRAL Queensland Rugby League imposed a $20,000 fine on the Yeppoon Seagulls because that was how it viewed "the seriousness of what the Seagulls had done". CQRL president Jim Gallagher said this on Monday when asked how the figure of $20,000 had come about. When asked did he seriously believe the Yeppoon club could pay the figure, Mr Gallagher said he was not in the business of supposition. The fine had been put on the club and the next move was up to Yeppoon. The $20,000 fine has rocked Yeppoon and made headlines even in Brisbane. Yeppoon club °facials, in private discussions, appear not to know what will be the next step. The Seagulls have 21 days in which to appeal against the decision to the Queensland Rugby League. Acting Seagulls president John Rhodes said on Monday the club had not yet lodged an appeal. Mr Gallagher would not discuss any direct reason why the fine had been imposed on Yeppoon. This information was available from the Yeppoon club which had the correspondence over the Broncos-Yeppoon game. But the seriousness of the offence resulting in the fine was related to long-term sponsorship the

CQRL had recently signed with XXXX Brewery. "Within a month of getting this sponsorship, Yeppoon had put it completely at risk," he said. The $20,000 fine was an infinitesimal amount against the value of the long-term sponsorship. "They put at risk the only long-term sponsorship Central Queensland has had," he said. "We have an association of rugby league clubs from Yeppoon in the East to Winton in the West and from Callide Valley in the south to Tieri/ Middlemount in the north. "They have never had a guaranteedprizemoney in their lives. For that prizemoney, we gave our sponsor exclusive rights of product. "After years of working toward that, one club decided to stuff them," he said. "This dispute is about protection of sponsorship. Breweries and John Ribot (Broncos general manager) are coincidental ... this is a dispute between the Yeppoon club and the CQ league. "It's a very narrow, straight line dispute. It's to do with the agreement CQ entered into." He said Yeppoon knew the terms of the agree-

Webb left wondering what would have appened if he had not made that call • CONTINUED FROM PAGE 16 "We have not done anything wrong," Mr Rhodes said. We still have had not written notification of the terms of the sponsorship agreement with the CQRL. "We have the minutes of a Rockhampton Rugby League meeting held on January 23 this year stating that the sponsorship is for the semi-finals and finals and that the sponsor's products had to be sold exclusively at those games." That is Yeppoon's stand on this issue. They have the minutes and these were confirmed by the phone call on the Thursday before the game during which the Rockhampton official said the agreement wording was in doubt. Mr Rhodes said the subsequent communications from CQRL president Jim Gallagher were, so far as he's concerned, only Mr Gallagher's interpretations of the agreement. "At the inquiry held after the Broncos game, the Rockhampton official said he had made a mistake and that the sponsorship agreement was for all games," Mr Rhodes said. "But that was after the event ... before the game everyone believed the agreement was only for semis and finals. "There's another point that hasn't been cleared up; when does the season start? If it started with the first trial of the season, on January 25, the Rockhampton league had already broken the agreement because Carlton products were sold at those games ... I was served them. "Also, both Carlton and Bond products were sold at games at other trials. Other clubs would

have probably sold Powers as well at these games if they could get itbut there's been a shortage. The only reason we had Powers available for our game was because it was made available to us." Mr Rhodes said the club had not sought to sell only Power products at the Broncos game nor had Broncos general manager insisted on it. The club had phoned XXXX and asked if it could have the XXXX tent for the game. He said the club was told the tent was at the Capricornia Institute and would be needed there untillOam on the Saturday of the game. "If we wanted to, we could have sent someone up to pull it down and re-erect it at St Brendan's but we don't have that many workers available. We thought XXXX would want to have some advertising at the game but they didn't seem too worried," Mr Rhodes said. Mr Rhodes said the club had not decided what course of action to take regarding the fine. "We could appeal to the Queensland Rugby League but it's not much use the QRL reducing our fine to $10,000 or even $1000 ... we didn't do anything wrong," he said. "We told the inquiry in Rockhampton we weren't breaking any contract and we still have not had any contract terms in writing. "The QRL might wipe our fine and give us a slap over the knuckles but we're inclined to think we should get an apology." Cr Webb, now sitting in the wings and watching as a bystander, had the last word on Tuesday: "I wonder what would have happened if I hadn't made that phone call to get those footballs?"

hank You Henry says thanks Thank T tor big money in Silver Bootee TWO-YEAR-OLD Thank You Henry scored a convincing win in the Fosters Silver Bootee Stakes at Tyrer Park on Wednesday.

Zealand-bred gelding Dreyfeus, ridden by apprentice Greg Lee, won the first race on the programme, the Victoria Bitter Wallet Handicap. Promising Rockhampton galloper Anything, trained by Stafford's older brother Ron, won the other feature event the Fosters Country Cup Qualifying Restricted Handicap over 1200 metres. This provided Anything with its third win in succession and at the same time brought to an end the winning streak of Gladstone galloper Rassy Again which had won its sixth previous starts, including three at Rockhampton. Rockhampton trainer Ray Unwin scored his first win in nearly two years when James' Gain finished too strongly to beat Zippy Zing in the Crown Lager Plate Handicap over 1200 metres. Club officials were pleased with the large crowd's reaction to the new TAB which operated on Sydney and Melbourne races.

ment before the Broncos match, as did all other clubs within the CQ League. "Had they not known the terms I told them personally in the week leading up to the match," Mr Gallagher said. "I told them once verbally and three times in writing." He said this action had been taken in the week before the game because the "president of the Yeppoon club told me on the Monday before the match that the club was stepping outside the sponsorship agreement". Mr Gallagher said he known the game had been scheduled because the Yeppoon club had been given permission to stage it by the Rockhampton league and the Rockhampton league, in turn, had told the CQ league. It was only in the final week the CQ league was told Yeppoon was stepping outside the sponsorship agreement. When told that Yeppoon had already committed itself to the game by the Thursday before the Saturday match, when the correspondence took place, Mr Gallagher said what Yeppoon had to do at that stage was "decided who they were committed to". "That was their choice. They always had that choice. Their choice was to concur with the sponsorship agreement or cancel the game." When asked whether an apology from Yeppoon would be sufficient to erase the $20,000 fine Mr Gallagher said: "No comment ... they know what the system is." Mr Gallagher said a visit from the Broncos was "like putting money in the bank" for a club .. "they're the most promotable club in Australia, but you don't have to break agreements to have that promotion and the crowds". Asked whether the Rockhampton league would have liked to have staged the game instead of Yeppoon, Mr Gallagher said Rockhampton had offered no objection to Yeppoon having the game. "There were no petty jealousies in the official correspondence," he said. Earlier in the interview, Mr Gallagher was told there appeared to be no "face-saving solution" open to either side in this dispute. He replied that the CQ league "does not have to save face. We believe we were ethical in what we did ... we believe Yeppoon was unethical in what it did". He said he had been elected unopposed as CQ president for the past 10 years and there had been lots of contentious issues that he had been able to solve over the phone. He didn't think he had written as many letters in the previous 10 years as he did in the week before the Broncos match. He agreed that if Yeppoon did not lodge an appeal and did not pay the $20,000 fine it would be a team with no-one to play ... "You said it." Mr Gallagher said. "Action has been taken and I am awaiting developments. It's over to you Yeppoon."

Ribot: storm in a teacup BRONCOS general manager John Ribot said on Monday the dispute between Yeppoor. Seagulls and the Central Queensland Rugby League "did not make any sense". Yeppoon, by staging the game with the Broncos, was "only trying to promote rugby league and give the game a kick along". "I thought rugby league was all about increasing the game, not decreasing it," he said. "Yeppoon did a good promotion and got penalised for it." He could not see any basis for the fine of "the huge amount of $20,000". The fine was just like saying "Aussie Rules, take over". Mr Ribot said the game had come about because of his respect for John Rhodes (now acting Seagulls president) and Maurie Webb (president until his verbal resignation on the day before the match). "I was talking to John Rhodes about playing a series of trial games. He showed interest and said 'why not have a game with us?'," Mr Ribot said. He said he had asked John Rhodes to "put something to me". "He did and I said OK. That was in October or November last year." Mr Ribot said the dispute should not have occurred. The Broncos had asked for a neutral ground and Yeppoon had nominated St Brendan's College. "Yeppoon only found out two days before the game that it was not OK," he said. Asked whether the Broncos had insisted on its sponsor's product, Power Bitter, being the only beer available at the game, Mr Ribot said the Broncos had not asked for "exclusivity ... we only wanted the opportunity for equal rights". Asked whether the Broncos had insisted on only its own advertising signs at the ground, Mr Ribot said the team was not worried about signs ... "We play at Lang Park and there are XXXX signs all around the ground". He said his prime object was to run a football club, not a brewery. His team had a S1 million sponsorship and it was only fair that its sponsor got a fair go. Mr Ribot described the Broncos/Yeppoon game as an "excellent day" and "rugby league was the winner". He said that's what the Broncos were all about. He said the Broncos would like to come back and play Yepppoon again but it wouldn't for the sake of the local (Yeppoon) club if the $20,000 fine was the result. The fine wasn't promoting the game, it had blown it apart. "It's a storm in a teacup," he said.

BLOKE down southern end of Capricorn Coast had problem with car radiator. He'd taken the car for a run and the light had come on and everything he did to fix it didn't seem to get him anywhere. Finally, fed up with the thing, he decided to give it one more try. He figured if he stuck the hose in it while the motor was running he might clear whatever the blockage happened to be. Now, since this was about the sixth or eighth time he'd taken off the radiator cap while the water was boiling he was well aware of the danger involved. He wrapped one of his wife's old skirts around the radiator cap to protect his hands and pushed down to release the pressure. Unfortunately, as he pushed down, he somehow or other managed to partly unscrew the cap which sent a jet of boiling water through the one gap he'd carelessly left in the skirt. The jet of boiling water unerringly headed toward the fly of his shorts and soaked him. Pain was instantaneous. He started dancing up and down in front of the car trying to keep his hands protected in the skirt and keep the radiator cap on while, at the same time, create sufficient draft in his shorts to cool off the water. Just then, with the same unerring instinct that made the boiling water head for his fly, his wife turned up. All she could see Was her husband bobbing up and gown at the front of the car. With the innocence of Eve, she inquired politely if there was anything she could do to help. Her "Adam," still with his hands on the radiator cap, gave her a quick run-down on what had happened and suggested something she could do to relieve his pain. "Eve" decided his advice could not be followed in public and retreated while he shouted "it's in your own best interests"!!! Wonder what he suggested? • •• PAT ANDERSEN is back from a jaunt to Melbourne visiting rellies and, while catching up with the news at the Capricorn Coast Mirror, remarked about something happened to her on Sunday while attending church with her friends in Victoria. She went to a Uniting Church near Templestowe and her cousin introduced her to members of the congregation after the service. As she was introduced and asked where she came from, Pat told them she came from a place on the Coast near Rockhampton in Queensland ... "you wouldn't know the area, it's a place called Yeppoon," was the sort of description she gave. How wrong she was. Three couples, as soon as they heard the name Yeppoon, immediately remarked that they visited Yeppoon each year for a holiday. They talked about the motels or caravan parks they stayed in and described the Coast in glowing terms to the rest of the congregation. "I was thunderstruck," Pat said this week.

able, he spoke to CQRL president Jim Gallagher. "In the course of that conversation about footballs, I was asked what arrangements the club had made about beer sales for the game," Cr Webb said. He replied that the club had arranged to sell Power beer and was told this was not in accordance with the agreement on CQRL sponsorship. "I knew nothing about new sponsorship arrangements and said so. When I got off the phone I contacted our delegate to the Rockhampton league and he said he knew nothing about it," Cr Webb said. "Nothing more was heard until early Thursday morning when a Rockhampton rugby league representative phoned to say he had re-read the sponsorship agreement and there seemed to be some doubt about the wording. "He felt the wording could be taken to mean that the sponsor's products (XXXX beer) had to be sold exclusively at semi-finals and finals but not exclusively at other matches. • • • "At that stage (Thursday morning) the Yeppoon club had nothing in writing as to what it should or BY the way, Eunice Coombs, who's Memshould not do." ber for Broadsound Denis Hinton's secretary, Cr Webb said the club then learned that the Mt has been flat out lately working out details Isa club had sorted out its XXXX sponsorship involved in Cabinet's visit to Yeppoon on problems concerning their Broncos game to be Monday. Suzy phoned her to ask how many held on the same Saturday as Yeppoon's and the media representatives were expected ands Taroom club had already played the Broncos the Eunice said she'd find out and phone back. week before with no problems. Soon after, Eunice rang Suzy to say she'd "As far as we were concerned, the game was on phoned someone in Brisbane and asked how ... then the faxes started," Cr Webb said. many southern media reps were coming. There He resigned as Yeppoon Rugby League Footwas a short silence on the line then the bloke in ball Club president on the Friday, the day before Brisbane said he doubted any journalists from the Broncos game. Sydney or Melbourne would cover the event. Acting club president John Rhodes said there Eunice then reminded him that in Brisbane, southerners may well be from other States but was a phone call, as Cr Webb said, on the Thursin Yeppoon, Brisbane was regarded as the day morning. The next communication was a fax delivered at 2.55pm on Thursday to Cr Webb's `South! home by the post office. "We were asked to reply to it by 3pm," Mr Rhodes said. "Mrs Webb phoned Mr Gallagher to tell him the fax had only just arrived and I think he said we had until 7.30pm to reply. "We sent a fax in reply on Friday morning saying that substantial XXXX would be served at the ground and we got a fax back saying we had to serve Bond products exclusively." Mr Rhodes said there had then been a fax saying the game was cancelled. After the game was played, Rockhampton league asked for $260 in payment for players' insurance. The game was played. There was a record turnout of spectators and Yeppoon club officials are convinced it was the best promotion for rugby league held in this area. OFF The following Thursday, February 23, an inquiry was held in 'Rockhampton and Yeppoon was fined $20,000. AT TI IE Mr Rhodes said he could not understand why the fine had been imposed ... and why, if the CQRL felt it had to fine Yeppoon, similar fines had not been imposed on Mt Isa and Taroom which also played the Broncos under similar 39 2444 circumstances.
