Emu Park splits over 'townie' councillor push EMU PARK has split into two camps over what is believed to be the impending resignation 'Cr Lawrie Daley ... and one camp is organised. One group wants "someone from Emu Park", otherwise described as a "townie". But this group does not want the three people from Emu Park who stood at last year's council elections. The second group wants "democracy" and calls for the "next in line" from last year's elections to be appointed to fill the vacancy should it arise. The difference is that the second "group" is not really a group ... it's a collection of individuals voicing their own opinions and feelings. On the other hand, someone calling for a "townie" has circulated a petition through some Emu Park businesses and there's a back-up force talking to people and pushing one side of the story. (The petition does not have a name on it and certain people asked who was circulating it said they could not remember who it was.) There was an interesting reaction to last week's stories in the Capricorn Coast Mirror which gave details on the move for a replacement councillor. The paper was still being delivered when a member of the Emu Park Pensioners' League contacted the Mirror to say the pensioners had realised last month there was a better than even chance that Cr Lawrie Daley would be resigning. The matter was discussed at a meeting and a vote was taken to write to Livingstone Shire Council stating that pensioners wanted the "next in line" to be appointed. The member said pensioners wanted the appointment to come from among those people who actually stood at last year's election and had subjected themselves to public scrutiny. The member said pensioners had heard a rumour that the next in line (Lloyd Webber) had said he wouldn't take the job and if that was the case it should go to the one after Mr Webber (Mabel 'munds). L.--Emu Park and Districts Chamber of Commerce went on record this week stating it supported "the replacement of Cr Lawrie Daley (should he resign) with a person residing in Emu Park and who would have the same active involvement in local organisations and community affairs. "We feel that the interests of the business sector and residents cannot be adequately served unless the member is readily accessible for consultation and discussion". This statement was prepared at an "informal" meeting of the chamber executive on Monday night and was s igned by president Ban)/ Laundry. Meanwhile Mr Webber, the man who polled 597 votes last year and missed defeating Cr Duncan McDonald by 42 votes, attacked moves in Emu Park for a "townie". He said it was strange that there had been "no real cry for someone from Emu Park" when Crs Ann Giorgi (Keppel Sands) and McDonald

(Cawarral) represented division one during the previous term of three years. "The people behind the townie move are a little bit inconsistent," Mr Webber said. "They've known Cr Daley wasn't involved in council for a long time. Why weren't they screaming earlier this year?" He also blasted the "townie movers" for not considering the three people from Emu Park who stood last year (Neville Fraser 381 votes, Fred Cowdray 368 and Frank Withoos 251). "Emu Park electors represent the bulk of the 2364 entitled to vote last year and if the feeling was so strong for townies, these electors could have ensured they got two people from Emu Park as their representatives, as they did in years gone by," he said. "Four stood from Emu Park and no-one whose name I've heard being touted as Cr Daley's replacement showed the slightest interest last year but now they can slide into council through the back door they want the job. "Do people like that represent the best interests of the area's ratepayers?" Mr Webber said he was disgusted about the whole idea of Emu Park wanting a "townie". He had stood as a councillor of Livingstone Shire, not as a potential Cawarral councillor. "If we're going to say we must have one representative from the town let's split the division in two with one person being elected by Emu Park and another being elected from rural electors," he said. "That's the trouble with this shire, it always comes back to 'urban versus rural." Mr Webber said he would like to see the politics taken out of the issue and division one "get the representation it deserves and hasn't had for three years". As far as a move for a "townie" and Emu Park feeling it had special status to deserve its own councillor, he suggested Mabel Edmunds should be given the job because she lived in Nerimbera and that area had not had direct representation for years. "What I can't figure out in this townie push is what the people behind it are after? What's the motive that drives them?" he said. Mr Webber said he would prefer to see nothing done in the way of petitions or whispering campaigns until it was known for sure whether Cr Daley had resigned. "If he does, then I expect to get a call from Livingstone Shire Council. If I don't get that call, I'll want to know why. After all, I am the next in line," he said.

CAMPAIGNING for the State election, expected to be held at the end of this year, has started for ALP Broadsound candidate Jim Pearce. Mr Pearce has spent the months since gaining pre-selection travelling to all parts of the Broadsound electorate. "I wanted to have a look at the population centres in the electorate as well as the enormous distances to travel to offer any assistance to my future constituents," Mr Pearce said. He will be door-knocking the Capricorn Coast for the next four or five weeks before heading off to another part of the electorate. "I'll be living here, but anyone who wants to talk to me can leave a message at 28 0091, and I will contact them as quickly as possible. "Broadsound is important to the outcome of this year's State election and the campaign is going to generate a lot of interest. "I felt, because the electorate is so widespread, that I should start campaigning now so electors will have a chance to talk to me as much as possible," he said. "There is a need for real change in Queensland and I am happy to be part of the Wayne Goss Labor team." Mr Pearce said Queensland was going through a volatile time of change and transition. "Periodic changes in the political complexion of governments are inevitable but more importantly, necessary and healthy. "The National Party cannot be re-elected in its own right at the next State election. There is a simple choice ... a choice between a positive and forward looking Goss Government or a divided and brawling coalition. "The National Party is currently spending millions of dollars of taxpayers money on political advertising in a last ditch attempt to revive their flagging political support." He said the Liberal Party was too weak to stand up to the National Party in any reformed coalition. "Their actions in the first two weeks in parliament this year proved that it is a waste of time voting for the Liberals. "They supported the National Party to gag debate on the foreign investment issue on March 8; gagged opposition leader Wayne Goss when he was trying to protest about the gagging of foreign investment debate on March 9; gagged debate on the state of Queensland's prisons on March 14 and also on Premier Mike Ahern's...role in approval of the WoIfdene Dam project on March 16. "They are the great pretenders. They talk toug' about the Nationals outside parliament, but NC it comes to the crunch, they jump whenever the Nationals snap their fingers," he said.

"The current State Government has been revealed as a corrupt administration and Premier Ahern still leads the same old government trying to gloss over corruption. They still spend money to promote themselves. "Queensland and the people of Broadsound are looking to a decisive break from the past. They need a fresh start and a Labor government will guarantee real changes."

Pearce 'cast line' in unknown water ALP candidate Broadsound Jim Pearce, has caught himself hook, line and sinker over changes to regulations for Barramundi net sues recently announced by Primary Industry Minister Neville Harper, Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton said. "Mr Pearce became enmeshed in a thorough tangle and only confused the fishing industry." Mr Hinton said Mr Pearce's tangled mess started when he said the department `had cost fishermen thousands of dollars by chariging from the measurement of fish net size from the centre of the knot to centre of knot, to between the knots when the net is stretched out'. "In fact there has been no change at all in the system whereby the measurement has been between the knots since 1977 under the fisheries regulations. "In the April edition of Queensland Fisherman, Mr Harper reminded fishermen the legislation required net mesh size to be measured as the distance from inside knot to inside knot. "Mr Pearce has landed himself in further deep water by stating `there was no warning of the changes' distressing the industry," he said. "In fact, I have been advised by the Queensland Fish Management Authority and also the fishermen's own organisation, the Queensland Commercial Fishermen's Organisation, that the issue has been debated within the industry for over 12 months and impending changes were widely known by people who keep in touch with the industry." He said if any fisherman was not aware of it then it was because of communication failure within their organisation. "Mr Pearce should research his information, before casting a line into unknown waters. He snagged himself finally into a complete knot by stating that the changes (from 150mm to 245mm for open season northern foreshore set gill nets) were changes to the legislation. "In fact the changes were alterations to the fifth schedule of the fisheries regulations, not legislative changes at all. "I can only advise Mr Pearce `knot' to go fishing, as he certainly knows how to drown in very shallow waters indeed."

Chairman wants unemployed to help revegetate, clean beaches LIVINGSTONE Shire chairman Cr John Bowen will be presenting a scheme to council next week to usevolunteer unemployed people to revegetate and clean Coast beaches. He will seek authority to write to Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton and Member for Capricornia Keith Wright asking each to pursue funding through State and Federal Government channels to help the scheme. Cr Bowen said there were 1000 unemployed throughout the shire and he was hoping for 10 per cent, or 100, to come forward and offer to help council restore and beautify its beaches. The volunteers would be asked to revegetate sand dunes in conjunction with other dune restoration works. In addition, there would be a massive clean-up from one end of the Coast to the other. The revegetation will be required during dredging at Kinka Beach when 100,000 cubic metres of sand will be pumped from the low tide area to rebuild dunes. Work such as this could bewasted unless the newly-created dunes are revegetated. Cr Bowen said he did not think there would be any problems in having unemployed come forward tovolunteer their services ... "it will be like Expo, when everyone wanted to help because it was benefiting the Coast, their home," he said. Mr Wright, in particular, will be asked to seek Federal funding on beach clean-ups because the garbage to be picked up has come ashore from ships at sea. Otherwise known as "Federal garbage," this is a Federal responsibility and Cr Bowen wants the government to provide funding. He is calling for volunteers because the council's staff could not cope with the revegetation project. "We have a small staff but their duties are dictated by the budget," he said. "This staff could carry out the revegetation but it would take a year ... and nothing else would be done." If the scheme is approved, council would approach Commonwealth Employment Service offices asking staff to call for volunteers.

Cr Bowen said the volunteers would need supervision and a permanent position could be created.

Kinka erosion work underway WORK has started to protect the Scenic Highway and houses at Kinka Beach. A works gang, backed by a convoy of trucks and earthmoving equipment, started filling the huge hole eroded from the dunes at the northern end of the existing boulder wall. Sand filling is coming from the turn-off to Rosslyn Bay Harbour where a new turn-in will be created. Shire chairman Cr John Bowen said the Main Roads Department was paying about S30,000 for council to provide a passing lane and a wider turn-out. The work was needed because a constant stream of trucks carrying rockfill for the new harbour wall would create a dangerous hazard at the harbour entrance. "The hazard is created by trucks waiting to turn into the harbour," Cr Bowen.said. "A car heading north could ram the back of a truck with the existing road set-up. "The excavation works thee will provide a passing lane heading north to avoid this potential danger." The extra width will also make it easier for trucks coming from the harbour to turn south. Cr Bowen said the job had started and would continue until completion, expected later this month. The excavated sand is being trucked to Kinka Beach and used to build up the eroded dune before rock wall work starts. Cr Bowen drove to Kinka on Wednesday morning to see the work and found a number of residents also watching. "They wanted to talk about the works and were happy with the 5260,000 that is going to be spent there. It has given them hope," he said.

JULY 3, 1989 is the expected date for the start of full-time TAFE courses on the Capricorn Coast. The Capricorn Coast TAFE Centre hopes to offer two or three programmes from that date. A questionnaire has been organised so Coast residents can decided what courses they want the new centre to offer in stage one. Stage one is the starting of courses in temporary premises. The State Government allocated 5200,000 for the first year for stage one. An agreement between Livingstone Shire Council and the Queensland Government has made available about 11 hectares at the end of McBean Street for a permanent TAFE to be built in two to three years. Temporary premises are being arranged and the location will be announced when organised.

Boat ramp will move upstream KEPPEL Sands Boat ramp at Musa Heads will be shifted upstream following representations from Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton. Mr Hinton said the shift had been approved and within two weeks Harbours and Marine Department engineers will arrive from Brisbane to make modifications to the present design to suit the location. A public meeting was convened by Mr Hinton and attended by Livingstone Shire chairman Cr John Bowen. Mr Hinton last month halted construction of the beach access ramp by Livingstone Shire Council after-numerous complaints from fishermen and an inspection with Crs John Bowen and Brian Dorey. "The ramp, which is being funded by the State Government at a cost of 575,000, was designed by the Department of Harbours and Marine, but its siting had virtually no support from about 50 boat owners who attended the meeting," Mr Hinton said. "Council has expended about 530,000 on roadworks to the harbours and marine site. "The meeting accepted the report from Water Resources, Harbours and Marine Minister Don Neal that an all-tidal ramp at a cost of 5350,000 was impractical because of the high outlay and the possibility that such a ramp, which would have an associated groyne, could alter the channel flows and become landlocked." Mr Hinton said it was eventually agreed that a position shift to calmer waters, slightly upstream to Cawarral Creek, but with a northerly aspect, would be the best available site for a beach access ramp. "Keppel Sands did not lend itself to an alltidal ramp at reasonable cost.

New owners for newsagencies THE Capricorn Coast's beauty and lifestyle has won two new families who have chosen to make their future here with the purchase of two Yeppoon newsagencies. Don and Cheryl Fee and Eric and Rhonda Burger this week took over Yeppoon News in Normanby Street and Savemore News in the Savemore Shopping Centre. For the two families it means a complete change of lifestyle ... and a solid vote of confi-

dence in the Coast's future. They had previously decided they wanted to run their own businesses and the line of work that attracted them was newsagencies. Once they had established that newsagencies were what they wanted, all they had to do was find the right businesses in the right location. Together they looked at what was available but could not find exactly what they were

looking for. It's one thing to find a solid business that promises financial security ... it's another matter altogether finding that sort of business in a place where six young children can enjoy good schooling and a memorable childhood. Then came the opportunity to buy both Yeppoon News and Savemore News. Here was a chance to buy not one, but two newsagencies ... and it was the Capricorn Coast itself that

Why would anyone want to own a newsagency?

Homecoming for one partner WHEN the Fee and Burger families were looking for a newsagency, they had something special in mind but were undecided about the city or town they would choose. For Don Fee, the chance to buy Yeppoon News and Savemore News was like a trip down memory lane because he was born and bred in Yeppoon. He attended both primary and high schools in Yeppoon and is a graduate of the Capricornia Institute. Don's father, who settled on the Coast in 1946, is a well-known identity. He was a teacher firstly at Yeppoon Primary School and later at Yeppoon High School for a total of 37 years. Now retired, he is extremely supportive of his son's return home. Both the Fee and Burger families bring a wealth of experience to the Coast which will be an asset to them in their business careers. Don and Cheryl Fee are both school teachers as is Eric Burger. Rhonda B urger brings another skill directly related to newsagencies solid experience in retailing. Rhonda has managed Jeans West stores in both Mackay and the Rockhampton City Mall. In Rockhampton, part of her responsibilities included staff training and establishing new stores. Eric Burger is a high school teacher who worked with Don Fee at the same school at Mackay for a number of years. Eric was then transferred to Brisbane. Both Eric and Rhonda Burger came to Queensland from Melbourne. Don Fee is a science teacher who has taught in Townsv ille, Mt Is a and Mackay. Cheryl Fee, originally from Charters Towers, is a primary school teacher who has been kept busy at home with their three children.

Wide experience for newsagency THE Fee and Burger families intend using their wide experience in teaching and retailing to make sure Capricorn Coast residents have every incentive to shop locally. Working together, they hope to provide efficent, friendly service. But they realise there's more to a superior newsagency than friendliness and efficiency ... what customers want is a wide range of useful stock. This is where their combined teaching experience has already proved helpful ... they have identified a range of school needs that will become features in the near future. A stocktake on the weekend revealed the full depth of stock already on hand and, at the same time, showed up the need for new lines that families with children at school will need. But stocking the goods is only part of the picture ... stocking goods at a price that makes them affordable completes the story. With the buying strength of being Newspower outlets, both Yeppoon News and Savemore News will be able to offer specialty education needs such as books and equipment at competitive prices. "We're parents ourselves and we know just how much of a strain is placed on family budgets by the cost of school needs," they said this week. "We'll be looking for Newspower specials that will mean as much to our own budgets as they will to Coast families. We know school needs are not just a once-a-year item ... schooling costs money every week so we'll have low prices every week." They said they were already looking forward to Christmas because the range of stock they will have, together with the reputation they intend building, will mean there will be no need for trips to Rockhampton. "We know what 'back-to-school' means and we want people to think of Yeppoon News and S avemore News when they think of school needs," they said.

sealed the deal for the families. In their words the "picturesque environment, excellent climate and relaxed and friendly community" was especially appealing. In addition, the two families considered the Coast a "wonderful area to bring up children". Don and Cheryl Fee have three children ... Naomi, 9, Andrew, 7, and Gavin, 5.

WHY would anyone want a newsagency? Why would anyone want to wake up when it's dark and go to bed when it's dark? Why would anyone want to stand behind a counter for hours a day, seven days a week with only Good Friday and Christmas Day off? These are questions Eric and Rhonda Burger and Don and Cheryl Fee asked themselves some time ago when they first considered giving up secure positions for the uncertainty of being self-employed. The first answer that comes to mind is probably the profit motive ... newsagencies are considered solid businesses. But so are milk runs and while milkos get up early they can often get to bed early, too! Then again, there's general stores. They offer the chance to work long hours if that's what someone wants. But the Fee and Burger families chose newsagencies because they liked the idea of putting their previous education and skills to work. They've taken the plunge, moved bag and baggage to the Capricorn Coast and have put everything on the line to fullfil their dream ... owning their own business. Because they now own not just one newsagency, but two, they have decided they should each get to know the different customers. As a result, each family will be working week about ... one week in Yeppoon News and one week in Savemore News. They want to get to know all customers, not just those dealing with one of the newsagencies. Also, it gives each family a bit of a break because S avemore News keeps shopping centre hours while Yeppoon News handles the newspaper and magazine home deliveries .-:: and, therefore, the early starts and late finishes. There's another reason for each family moving from shop to shop. They want to provide the Capricorn Coast with the best ... the best in service and range. Two new pairs of eyes will see each shOp each week and be able to make changes for the better. "But all our efforts will be wasted unless we give the customers what they want," they said this week. "The best way to satisfy customers is for the customers to tell us what they want. If there's a newspaper or magazine, a book or a gift that we can get in then please, tell us. We want to provide the best possible service."

Newsagencies to reflect reading needs READING needs have changed in recent years to reflect Australia's lifestyle with leisure and hobbies high on the list of everybody's preferences. Specialty magazines have proliferated to such a degree that anyone seeking information on almost any topic can find a glossy, colour magazine that suits their taste. One of the biggest growth areas has been in the field of computer magazines. Computers, almost unheard of a decade ago, have today become both tools for work and objects of leisure. Microcomputers themselves have grown from 4k kit machines to multi-megabyte monsters that make lightwork of the toughest tasks. But which one do you buy for your family? Do you spend thousands of dollars so your children can play a game and you can balance your chequebook or can you do the same for less than $1000? You won't know until you understand your needs and Yeppoon News and Savemore News have, or soon will have, probably everything you need to know sitting on their vast shelves. Maybe fishing sounds like a good idea ... but what equipment do you need? Once again the

answer is at Yeppoon News and Savemore News. Hot Rods, sports cars, family saloons, trucks, motorcycles ... there's magazines for all of them. And there's magazines for cricket, golf, football, running ... think of what you need and Yeppoon News and Savemore News will have it on their shelves. The Fee and Burger families have looked over the list of titles now carried and realise there are many more available ... they're already on order. The same applies to newspapers. Newspapers serve different needs today from what readers expected in the past. The days when a quick over-view of news under big, bold headlines, are over. Readers today expect their newspapers to take on subjects in greater depth which has meant ever-expanding magazine-type sections. Not all newspapers have them and some have better detail than others. The Fee and Burger families, having travelled widely themselves, understand that readers want a greater variety on the news-stand. "The Capricorn Coast has a diverse popula-

tion," Mr Fee said. "There are people who were born here, know they were lucky in their choice of parents and have no great desire to read about other capital cities. "Side-by-side with these locals are people who had to travel here to find their future. They are voracious in their desire for local knowledge but, at the same time, like to keep in touch with Brisbane, Sydney or Melbourne ... where they were born. "In less than a week we've had inquiries about interstate papers and have seen a solid need for regular supplies. "They may be a day late but the locals and tourists will be able to satisfy all of their reading needs at Yeppoon News or Savemore News." It's the same with books. Everybody has different tastes ... and tastes change with moods. The person who wants an Agatha Christie today wants a Dick Francis tomorrow and then, for a change, a Harold Robbins or James Clavell the day after. Yeppoon News and Savemore News will be catering to all tastes. "We have to," Mr Burger said. "That's our business."

Federal Ministers will get details on Coast idea to protect beaches A CENTRAL Queensland plan to involve all levels of government in the protection of the nation's beaches will go to Federal Ministers this week. Member for Capricornia Keith Wright said he had preliminary discussions with senior departmental officers in Canberra regarding the proposition put forward by CrJohn Bowen for a 40-40-20 involvement in beach protection schemes by Federal, State and Local Government. "There are some constitutional problems with proposals, as most people know the State

rightly holds to its rights to control and manage any matter that relates to land," Mr Wright said. "Part of Queensland's problem in the beach erosion area has clearly resulted from the inept administration by the State Government over many years in its allowing unfettered and unplanned development of its beach areas. "Many local authorities also must carry the burden of blame for the way some developments have proceeded. "Irrespective of this, there is a growing recognition at Commonwealth level, that unless the Federal Government becomes involved, before long, Australia will face a beach erosion problem of crisis proportion. "It is amusing that a number of State and Local Authorities, closely linked with the National Party, are now clamouring for Federal funds, but at the same time, refuse to give up any of their control in the decision-making process," he said. "Livingstone Shire chairman Cr John Bowen may find himself at odds with the National Party with his publicly stated support for Federal Government involvement in matters relating to Australia's coastline." He said under the constitution, the Commonwealth Government was only involved in such matters as waste disposal when it occurred at sea. "Obviously there is a need to rethink the whole issue of who should be responsible, both financially and in management terms, for Australia's coastline. "I'm confident the majority of people would welcome any positive involvement at Commonwealth Government level." Mr Wright said a number of conservation groups had also been pressing for increased Commonwealth say in the use of Australia's foreshores. "They are very much aware the State-run Beach Protection Authority is a toothless tiger that is poorly funded and has very little power. "I am pursuing the idea of a 40-40-20 financial involvement by all levels of government and have already suggested to Canberra that Central Queensland could be an experimental area. "However, I think when it comes to the State arena, the National Party will have its hands out for any money but will totally refuse to allow the Federal Government to be involved in the decision-making process. "There will be a real test on Cr John Bowen to convince his National Party friends that they should allow the Commonwealth Government to play a role in the management of our foreshores and I can only wish him luck." Mr Wright said there was little chance of getting a referendum through to give the Commonwealth any further powers in this area. "For that reason, if the Commonwealth were to be involved, it would have to be achieved by mutual, but legal agreement, from all levels of government. "The sad fact is that unless the Government becomes involved, coastal local aut horitieswill never have the financial base to work from to address the erosion problems that confront them. "In the long term, all Australians will be the losers."

An occasional column by Bruce McGregor to explain the creation of the Coast's own TAFE College. Mr McGregor heads the organising committee

the apricorn

THIS is the first column about the Capricorn Coast TAFE Centre and in future ones a member of the Capricorn Coast TAFE Centre College Community Council or someone from Rockhampton TAFE will explain the workings of a TAFE or what is happening with the Coast centre. The most important part of this column ... the Capricorn Coast TAFE Centre is a reality. A small group of people, under the chairmanship of Bruce McGregor, is currently involved in negotiations and decisionmaking to make sure the Coast has the courses it needs. There are two distinct stages. Stage one (proposed starting date, July3, 1989) is the introduction of a number of courses held in a number of different venues. Negotiations are underway to secure a suitable interim venue. Stage two (possible starting date, January 1991) is the construction of a permanent TAFE campus on the land fronting the new Rockhampton Road, west of the roundabout. Obviously the determination of stage two is dependent on the effectiveness of stage one. The interim College Community Council is seeking your assistance in making sure that stage one takes off in the right direction. We will provide the venue and make sure it is adequately equipped ... but we need to know what courses are in the biggest demand. In next week's Mirror and also on shop counters all over the Coast this week there is a questionnaire. There will be a series of these questionnaires, directed to specific groups, over the next few weeks. This first one is most important because it will give us an age break-down of people interested in courses; whether courses need to be part or full time or evening; when you would be able to start a course; whether you are interested in diploma, certificate or interest courses and, of course, what type of courses are needed on the Coast now and in the future. During the next few weeks, we will let you know the results of the questionnaire, explain the workings of a TAFE and the College Community Council.

THE need to protect our Queensland heritage for future generations and rising public concern at the level of foreign investment in Queensland property markets, needs to be seriously addressed by the Queensland Government. Queenslanders are rightly concerned that Australian property, particularly in the tourist industry, beef industry and residential property markets, is being sold off to help off-set the present extremely damaging external trading deficit that is bleeding the country. Queenslanders in particular have every reason for concern that in as little as 10 years time, rising property values fuelled by foreign investment may well have priced homes and properties beyond the reach of many Queensland families. Vertical integration in such industries as beef and tourism, with the complete chain of production in overseas hands, could provide a poor return to Australia on the productivity of the particular industry. Japan, with about one-third of the world's available investment capital, poses the greatest threat in this regard. This fact is being clearly recognised by the public, if ignored by political parties, and an

IN reference to Easter being a pagan festival, to the Christian, Easter is the time we celebrate the death by crucifixion of Jesus and His coming back to life, His being raised from the dead. Jesus died and rose again, so we celebrate it. Pagans may or may not celebrate Easter for whatever reason they see fit, as to me Easter is an occasion to rejoice, praise Jesus, the risen Christ. Let us take advantage on every occasion to proclaim the meaning of His death and His resurrection to the whole world. Was Jesus crucified on a Friday? Thursday or a Wednesday, to me the Bible does not say, so I don't think it matters, but according to Mark 16:9 it was on the first day of the week that He arose. Sunday is the first day of the week. Refer to Matthew 28:1-10; Mark 16:1-9, and Luke 24:1-11. Colossians 2:14-17 contains a strong biblical statement that we are not to observe the 'Holy li)w.s of the Old Testament now that Jesus Christ, the Substance, has come. Let us not igno -! the Substance and honor the shadow. - .4 c Lydia Agitts, Racecourse Rd, Yeppoon.

Foreign-owned lands taxed would fall into two categories: (a) Presently held lands prior to gazettal of the tax. These lands should be subject to the tax, phased in over a 10-year period, so that owners can adjust to the tax or rearrange their affairs as they consider appropriate to th-', circumstances. (b) Lands purchased following the gazettal would be taxed at full rate with the rate determined and varied from time to time as deemed appropriate by the Government of the day.

The Foreign Lands Register will allow the Queensland Government to objectively measure foreign ownership but this valuable tool will be no solution to the problem unless effective measures are taken to utilise the register.

Mrs Brownsdon's recollection of history 40 years ago is as biased as it is today. She distorts the facts, irrespective of the consequences. There is good and bad on both sides of the political fence and Mrs Brownsdon is on her own as there is not one Australian then or now who would qu,estion John Curtin's patriotism. Curtin is recognised for his greatness as a wartime leader. He died in office brought on by an immense workload and pressure. His sacrifice was no less than any front line serviceman. How dare Mrs Brownsdon distort the facts of history and degrade one of Australia's greatest leaders in such an incredulous manner. The federal government funds hospitals for veterans whether they arc run by the State or Federal Governments. Is there something wrong with the way the Ahern Government handles hospitals and veteran affairs that you insist their control be retained by the Federal Government. Mrs Brownsdon, you have denigrated the dignity of political debate. The greatest problem is that someone might believe your untruthfulness and distortion of history. My self-respect demands that this debate with you should cease. I hope in future when anyone reads your letters they treat them with suspicion as you have been proved to be completely unreliable. Good-bye Mrs Brownsdon. - Ross Dickson, Stevenson Street, Yeppoon.

These problems must be addressed by both the Commonwealth and Queensland Governments. It must be recognised that the root causes of the problem must be removed or the situation will continue to worsen, having serious adverse effects in relation to: (1) The future ownership of Australian lands and industry, involving serious implications for the economic, and hence political, control of this State and other States. (2) The sense of national pride, and hence growing and bitter public resentment, at the continued sale of Australian property. (3) The loss of tourism dollars as the antiAsian sentiment grows, creating a disincentive for Asian tourists to visit Australia (one tourist is worth the export value of 27 tonnes of coal) (4) The loss trading opportunities as countries such as Japan, Hong Kong, etc., recognise the Anti-Asian sentiment and look for imports from other countries. Exports such as beef and coal could be seriously affected. The following steps can be taken at a national and State level to address this problem: (1) At a national level, the Foreign Investment Review Board should be reconstructed

with real teeth. Federal Policy should be allow foreign investment in areas of real ductivity benefit to Australia such as mining and manufacturing. Speculative property markets and vertical integration of industries such as the beef industry should be severely curtailed. (2) Import restrictions on non-essential items (expensive luxury cars, etc.) should be introduced to positively address the trade deficit problem; this need not necessarily lead to reduced living standards for the major population, because such restrictions would affect the higher socio-economic group. (3) At a State level in Queensland, the benefits of the recently amended Foreign Lands Register Act should be utilised. Because Queensland is the only State to introduce such legislation, it is uniquely placed to introduce a land tax on all foreign-owned lands held and purchased by non-resident aliens.

anti-Japanese sentiment is sweeping Australia and particularly in Queensland. This is clearly demonstrated by recent statements by Tourism, Industry, Small Business and Technology Minister Rob Borbidge, who announced that "Australia is no longer the number-one tourist destination for Japanese honeymoon couples because of anti-Japanese sentiment in Australia. There is perception in Japan that Australians, including young Australians, are rapidly becoming anti-Japanese investment".

REMEMBER the Brisbane Line ... there was no such thing Mrs Brownsdon. You arc not telling the truth. It was Menzies who ran down our forces in Malaya and allowed the men of this country to be deployed in Europe leaving this country defenceless. Menzies kowtowed to Churchill who said Australia could be taken by the Japanese and re-taken by the British after they won the war in Europe. Churchill treated Menzies with contempt and Australia as expendable. Menzies caved in during October, 1941. Fortunatelv John Curtin and a Labor Government came to Australia's rescue in this time of crisis when Menzies was disgraced. In his New Year message on December 29, 1941, John Curtin told Australia he would never surrender to the Japanese and was joining up with America to save Australia when Britain had deserted us.

CHALLENGE

7 following would be the major effects of 56-1a tax. (a) A major disincentive for foreign investors to speculate in Queensland rural and residential property markets dependent on the tax rate. (b) A clear signal from Government that this type of investment is not sought in Queensland. (c) The restraining of property values keeping property prices more within the reach of the Queensland population. (d) A valuable source of income to the Queensland Government not derived from Queensland taxpayers. (e) A positive cash flow to Australia supplementing export income. (f) Adisincentive for foreign investors to invest in Queensland vis-a-vis other States. This would slow down the Queensland economy but would be an acceptable price to pay for maintaining our heritage for future generations. (g) The Queensland State Government should consider amending the Aliens Land Act of 1965 which allows foreigners to own, hold, sell and bequeath freehold lands on the same basis as naturalised Australians. This Act was introduced by the Nicklin Government primarily to eliminate discrimination against resident aliens living in Queensland who were awaiting naturalisation and seeking to purchase Queensland property. At the time of introductioTMNfew Members of Parliament appreciated th,_,1 of the present influx of foreign capital, particularly from Asian sources. A Parliamentary Committee should be commissioned to review the Act, with a view to preventing the sale of further freehold lands to non-resident

aliens with sales only of leasehold lands, with the nature of the tenure, and special conditions relating to land subdivision and useage being determined by the Minister for Land Management. Present freehold lands held by nonresident aliens should retain their tenure until sold, when a reversion to leasehold tenure should be considered. Conclusion. The concern about foreign investment, particularly Asian investment, in Australian property, is growing and will increasingly lead to patriotic concern and racial hatred in this country. This situation, in turn, will lead to a reduction in trade and tourism income. The issue must be addressed to the satisfaction of Australians. Once resolved, the measures taken will be accepted and appreciated by our trading partners as realistic (you cannot buy freehold land in Tokyo). The hackneyed phrase "they cannot take it away" is clearly unsatisfactory to national pride. Economic control of substantial Australian property will lead to undesirable and inevitable external political influence. The Queensland Government cannot force changes at a Federal level but the National Party should be promoting realistic policies at a Federal level. At a State level, the Government has the powers to discourage undesirable investment through appropriate land taxes and should only be allowing the sale of leasehold lands subject to Crown control. The major issue, of course, is whether Governments of Australia have the political courage to do what the man in the street knows is necessary.

THE cent sale held on Saturday at the showground by the Senior Citizens Benevolent Housing Society auxiliary was the best one members have run. They thank everyone who helped in anyway ... donations, work and attending. With all the rain organisers weren't too optimistic about the day's success. Typical of Coast people they all turned out because they thought no-one else would and the result was a resounding success.

YEPPOON Junior Swans teams start the

1989 Australia Rules' season on Sdnday with all games played in Rockhampton against Parkhurst. Organisers are hoping for a repeat of the 1988 season. "Although we are down a little on numbers, those attending training sessions are keen and this can only be a good sign for this season," publicity officer Shane Steele said. "I'm sure once the action starts, the others will follow and numbers'should be a thing of the past. although under-11s are a problem. "Let's hope the new Aussie footy introduced in the local primary schools, and backed by Yeppoon Swans, will help in this area," he said. The first games for under-11,13,15 and 17 are against Parkhurst in Rockhampton at the cricket ground. A bus will leave Yeppoon Showground at 9am on Sunday. All players are encouraged to use the bus and travel as a team. "Parents and supporters are more than welcome to travel with the mighty Swans. We wish all junior teams a most successful 1989 season and the best of sportsmanship."

Yeppoon bowls 6

THE weather has played havoc with games at Yeppoon Bowls Club and as a result the club has managed only a handful of games. The one game of note was the final of the Veterans Fours when Max Hutton, Eric Wilson and Don McPherson lined up with Bill Roberts and scored a comfortable win from Ken Moore, Tom Dorrell, Roy Graff Snr and Reg Gibbins. Bill took an early lead and after six ends led 13 to 3. He and his team continued on their winning way leading 25 to 6 on the 14th and finishing ahead 28 to 18. Pat Myler of Capricorn Coast Casuals dot•-• nated $100 worth of trophies to be played for %we on Easter Monday in a mixed competition. Considering the holidays, there was good attendance ... six triples and two fours played. The winners on the day were Arnold Halfpenny, Ken Moore and Mo Stewart with a total of 20 points. The runners up trophy went to Tom O'Sullivan, Dulcie Locke and Terry Woodbridge, also with a total of 20 points. It once again went to margins with Mo winning by 26 while Terry won by 21. There was a third prize awarded and naturally a selector had to be in the winners. Dolly McPherson, May Baglow and Dave Moulds took the prize with 19 points. Wednesday's feathers went to Key West, Ricki Ziebicki and Bill Fotheringham who won 14 ends. "The weather' has not been kind to games director Roy Graff," Yeppoon Bowls Club publicity officer said. "Once again I appeal to those retired members to assist by arranging competition games on Wednesday mornings. "The attendance book is a moral to be done away with so it will be of benefit to members if they arrange their games ahead instead of waiting to be called."

Capcoast under-19s in first win Swim break-up CAPCOAST Rugby A grade and under-19 teams played their first at home games on Sunday at Cooee Park. But, only the under 19 side sated the crowd's appetite for victory. In the A grade, Institute won the toss and opened play with a short kick that the Coast forwards took in. Immediately, Coast applied pressure and camped in the Institute half for several minutes, however, the students absorbed the pressure and hit back with a smartly executed backline movement that culminated in the first points of the match. Coast came back quickly from the kick off and proceeded to control a bulk of the possession in the forwards. This pressure, unfortunately, could not be converted into points. A contributing factor to this was the loss of five-eighth Nick Corbett early in the first half which greatly disrupted the backline. Shortly before half time loose ball again allowed Institute to spin the pill and score in the corner to leave going to the break 8-0 down. In the second half Coast was back with a vengeance, with the forwards more than holding their own in the loose and winning a glut of possession from scrums and line outs. Unfortunately the wiley students took what few chances they were afforded and turned the Coast side around with'well directed kicks that their try-hungry backs could pounce on. One such kick resulted in an Institute try. Coast's only real chance came from scrum in the opposition 22 which saw number eight Gerrard Read almost barge over, only to be held up over the line. Institute again turned Coast around to be rewarded with a try from a maul in the Coast 22 that saw a quick blind side dash and points in the corner for the students. The final score was Institute 16, Coast 0. For Coast, backs Peter Lane, Mark Boyd and rocket powered speedster Wes 'Dash' Dawes excelled. In the forwards Mick Lucht and Gerrard Read were ably supported by Jeff

Bennett and Alan Myles. Another inspirational game was by Barry Vale whose phoenix-like rugby career seems to be rising from the, ashes. In the under 19 game against Institute the young Coast side played some of its best rugby to date with a 6-0 win over Institute. The team operated as a unit due to some good training sessions over the past week. The forwards controlled possession in the loose especially well, due to a very committed display by the young loose trio enabling some well executed running by the well-drilled backs.

B grade squash BRETT Odell defeated Shane Miners, three rubbers to two in the Capricorn Coast B grade squash match of the week played on Tuesday night. A confident and determined Brett went out with the attitude for winning and took the first two matches, catching Shane unawares. However Shane fought back to even the score two games all before Brett regained his momentum and took victory in the fifth to clench a good win. The game was a crowd pleaser with both players producing good squash. A rematch will be interesting.

Skills sessions for Mini-Rugby SIXTY-SIX boys and 35 fathers spent last weekend at the Queensland Recreational Council Camp at Cooee Bay for the Rockhampton Mini-Rugby Union Association's annual camp. Boys from Rockhampton, Gracemere, Mt Morgan and the Capricorn Coast were put through -their paces in a number of skill sessions on Friday night and Saturday. Damp conditions did not hinder the boys' enthusiasm for coaching sessions led by one of the association's founders Bob McGowan and Queensland coaching and selection panel member Doug Hauff and Central Queensland under 21 coach Warren Harding. ' Boys and their dads learnt the game's basics in catching, tackling, kicking, scrumage, mauling and running skills. The fathers were taught the laws of the game,

sports medicine and were provided with an opportunity to do a level one coaching course introduced by Central Queensland Coaching director Bob Brown. Spirits were high and comradeship evident throughout the weekend. On Sunday the boys were tested in practical skills test for bronze, silver and gold rugby skills awards.

CAPRICORN Coast Swimming Club breakup on Saturday at Cooee Park hall was a barbecue lunch and presentation celebration. Awards and trophies were presented by patron Tom Edminstone while families looked on. Eighty-two children attended club nights during the last season. One child had 100 per cent attendance ... Steven Novak. Age champions: 7 years and under, Nyree Drillis and Chris Novak; 8 and under, Inga Drillis and Steven Hallett: 9 and under, Patsy Findlay and Cameron Blake; 10 and under, Kirri Leonard and Steven Novak; 11 and under, Chantal Leonard and Joe Newton; 12 and under, Natalie Cumming and Matthew Anderson; 13 and under, Sonya Phillips and Dennis O'Hare; 14 and under, Nancy Hall and Matthew Dooley; 15 and under, Karen -Myatt and 16 and under Kylie Shepherd. Ten children aged between two and five years swam 10 metres every week for the season and each one received a medal for encouragement. A large number of children received medals for championship night swims and aboUt 20 children broke club records on championship night which is most promising'for the future of club swimmers. The raffle of a dinner for two, donated by Woodsy's Aussie Dine In, was won by Artie Den Exter and second prize of a pen set went to Phil Leonard. The girls' aggregate perpetual trophy, do-. nated by Yeppoon Tackle and Sports, was won by Chantal Leonard with a total of 232 points. . Steven Novak won the boyS' aggregate perpetual trophy, donated by Brian and Olive Dor6y, with a total of 250 points. A special encouragement award was presented to Justin Pattimore.

President Anne Novak thanked all parents for their assistance throughout the season and said she is looking forward to another successful season next summer.

Squash starts SQUASH fixtures resumed in all grades this week at the Capricorn Coast Squash Centre after a two week Easter break. A grade teams saw some very one-sided team results. Wednesday night's A grade competition resulted in two clean sweeps. Val Odell just averted a similar fate for Professionals when she scraped back from 2-1 down to win in five against newly promoted Wayne Teys of Odds and Ends. The 4-0 wins of Saints and Sinners over Secret Weapons and Bits and Pieces against Navigators rocketed them past former secondplaced Professionals. Secret Weapons and Navigators fielded a, reserve each which contributed to their downfall. B1 player David Schulz, playing for Navigators, at number three impressed. He played good straight lengths through the match and it was only when leading match ball 8-1 in the fifth he became unsettled by the pressure putting several shots in the tin to let Greg Pitt back into the match. Greg went on to take the match 10-8. Bernard Lacey and Larry Owens didn't go the anticipated five when Bernard claimed the match 1-9, 10-9, 9-6, 10-9. Glen Evans claimed it was a bit cheeky of Dennis Etheridge to beat him on his first foray as a number three. Bits and Pieces defeated Navigators 4-0: Rav Campbell def Russell Fitzgerald 3-0; Greg Pitt def David Schulz 3-2; Chris Briggs def Leon Malone 3-1; John Briggs def Joe Foat 3-1. Saints and Sinners defeated Secret Weapons 4-0: Chris Callard def reserve Mark Sargood 32; Dennis Etheridge def Glen Evans 3-1: Bernard Lacey def Larry Owens 3-1; Neale Royal def Gordon Roberts 3-2.

Wet caused more dropped balls than a year of Lotto • By Jeff Quigley THE mighty Emu Park Emus recorded its fifth straight reserve grade rugby league victory in the team's short but illustrious history when the side ran out winners against Yeppoon Seagulls at Rockhampton's gymnasium grounds. The final score was Emu Park 13 and Yeppoon 8. In a game that saw more dropped balls than a year's lotto draws, the Park was more than a little bit lucky to get away with the two points. The game opened on a torrid note with both packs of forwards trying desperately to dominate. It was only some good defence from the Emus that prevented Seagulls from scoring. The game's first scoring opportunity eventuated when half back Doak was penalised for incorrectly playing the ball forward. Yeppoon's goalkicker Tanzer missed with his kick. After the initial onslaught by the Gulls, Emu Park fought back and began to turn the Yeppoon forwards around. The slippery conditions made the game difficult as a spectacle. But to the credit of the large coastal crowd they cheered at every opportunity. Centre Witt failed to grab the slippery pill with the tryline wide open 'and the Park's first try opportunity had gone begging. The Park won the scrum against the feed and again mounted considerable pressure on Yeppoon's line. As the sixth tackle approached, Doak calmly potted over a field goal to give the Park a 1 nil lead. Shortly after that Emu Park made its first replacement when Fransen was replaced by Kel West, who knew what to do when the chips were down. Yeppoon hit the front when Tanzer potted over a penalty goal and the score remained two points to one till the half time break. Coach Kiwi Anderson had some fatherly words to his flock during the break which seemed to do the trick. The Emus pack began to work as a unit and forced Yeppoon on the defensive. Doak failed to convert a penalty but from the ensuina 25 metre drop-kick the Emus carved a path°towards the posts. Good backing up and quick hands resulted in man-of-the-match Mark Briggs scoring the

Jim Duffy (left), Kent Svendsen (centre) and Shane O'Mara (right) watch while Kirk Doak kicks for the line. first try of the match under the black dot. Doak added the extras to give Emu Park a 7-2 lead. The oppressive humidity took its toll on the bigger players with many reduced to pedestrians. It was during this stage the game deteriorated andboth sideswere guilty of squandering many opportunities. At one stage the Park lost the ball three times in its own quarter only to see Yeppoon lose it four times and as a result the Emus kept Seagulls from scoring. It was a coach's nightmare. The Park finally coughed the ball up once too often and it was Yeppoon's supporters turn to cheer wildly when lock forward Pidgeon noticed a gap close to the ruck and sprinted through untouched to score the Gulls first try. Tanzer added the extraswith a superb pressure goal to give Yeppoon a one point lead. With the fanatic support of Emu Park's loyal band of supporters the Emus clawed their way back into the attack. The mistake count climbed to astronomic figures and Park failed again and again to cross the opposition's line. With the full-time hooter not too far away the referee spotted a discrepancy close to the Seagull's line and it was left to Emu Park's Kirk Doak to steer the ball over the crossbar to give the Park a one point lead. He struck the ball hard and low. The crowd's dismay turned to wild cheers when the ball struck the crossbar only to rebound straight

into the hands of Hacksaw Jim Duffy. From a quick play the ball that man Briggs was able to force his way under the posts to give Emu Park a match winning try. With Doak's conversion the score was now 13 points to 8. Yeppoon continued to try and bridge the gap but time ran out and mighty Emu Park had recorded its first victory against Yeppoon. Emu Park scorers: Briggs two tries, Doak two goals and one field goal and Yeppoon scorers were Pidgeon one try and Tanzer two goals. The mighty supporters for Emu Park were Briggs, Trimms, O'Mara, Doak, Slotosch and Svendsen. Another player, 'Ginger' Mark Slotosch, was complimented by a spectator for his sportsmanship. He had to hard tackle a Yeppoon player and after the tackle, rubbed the guy's shoulder as if to say sorry,, mate. The win was somewhat dampened by the serious injuries to Matt Trimms and Kent Svendsen who now appear to be out of action for at least one month, and six weeks respectively. It was great to see so many supporters back at our 'leagues club' to celebrate with us. Next week will see the mighty Emus take on the other front runners of the competition, Brothers, at the Brother's home ground on Sunday, April 9. The supporters bus will leave the Pine Beach Hotel at noon. Don't forget to book your seat to go and watch the greatest little club on the Coast.

SWANS KICK OFF WITH A WIN YEPPOON Swans opened its 1989 campaign with a decisive 44 point win over Parkhurst in Rockhampton. The game was played in conditions not conducive to good football but the wet weather was not enough to dampen the enthusiasm of the new-look Swans. Without coach Steve Burns and a handful of other regular A graders, newcomers such as Aaron Thompson, Steve Bird and Bret Lord helped out-play and out-muscle the Panthers. The Coast's ability to handle the greasy ball and players willingness to run the ball were. features, as was the team's confidence to back its skills which left the coach pondering where he would fit in. From the first bounce Yeppoon was in control and if it wasn't for the team's sometimes indirect approach to goal, the winning margin would have been much greater. The game heralded the return of Yeppoon's most popular player 'Drover' Steve Lauritz who opened his account with a non-stop best on-field game in the producer's chair. One of Swans clear winners was `Yabbie' Bibby at centre half forward. His strength and mobility made-him a focal point in attack .. a point that will be sorely missed if he's punished for a misdemeanour committed late in the game. In a day of comebacks Greg Williams turned out on an understanding of one possession per 30cm of elastic tape used, while 'side step' Dave Chapman will be asking a few pertinent questions of his boot supplier following a major blow out. J R Heathcote was at home in thewet producing his best ever game and celebrated it by wearing home an impressive new look.

Tony Warwick and Jason Jamieson show all the earmarks of making a strong ruck combination, something the side has been crying out for over the past seasons. Final scores were Yeppoon 11-9-75 defeating Parkhurst 4-7-31. Best players: Drover, J R, Yabbie, Boydy, Chappy senior and Tonka. Goalkickers: Lord 3; Boyd 2; Jamieson 2 and Bibby, Munn, • Newton and Thompson one each. Cack Wozniak's reserve team had its first hit out for the year and although beaten never waned in the endeavour. The scores were always close in a tough, hard, slogging affair that was finally lost by 21 points. There were many game contributors ... John Pidgeon, Dale Wetzler, Boo Muller and Boyd Penfold and it may be these players who will be asked to form the nucleus of the side. At the moment the side lacks key position players and will struggle until a few arc available but the numbers are there so Cack has something to work with. Gary Hawke and Chooke Geissman won a fair share of the ruck andyoung Darren Franke stood out in the back pocket. Final scores: Yeppoon 3-3-21 defeated by Parkhurst 5-12-42. "Special thanks to Angliss Meats, Murph's Sight 'n Sound, Annie's Pies, Kristin's Hair Design and the Pacific Hotel for supplying much needed incentive awards for the players," the publicity officer said. "Congratulations to Aaron Thompson for kicking the goal of the year in his first match ... just can't beat a left footer." This week Yeppoon Swans tackle Brothers at the showground with the action getting underway at 12.30pm.

GROUP was sitting around a large bottle of rum this week having one of those philosophical discussions that only a bottle of rum can produce. After solving Queensland's political problems, the. group worked its way through Australia's problems and was about to fix up the rest of the world when someone decided it was time to head home. Naturally enough, the next problem to sort out was road safety and drinking ... and a female member of the group posed one of those questions that befuddled minds ponder. "You know when you get into your car and drive along the open road and there are signs that say you can do 100km/h that's what those signs mean ... you can do 100km/h and not get booked," she said. She then took a deep breath while the others rolled their heads knowingly ... although they were a little puzzled where this statement was heading. Anyway, with anew breath on board she continued: "Well, when you drive on the same road and you've had a few drinks you know the legal limit is .05 but it isn't because if you're caught with an alcohol level of .05 you're booked and you can't win yet isn't that the same as the legal limit for speed being 100km/h yet you can do that without getting booked!" There was another pause for a well-deserved breath while the rest of the group reached for the rum bottle. She then reckoned that she had read the legal limit was .05 and it should be .049999999999 and so on because in fact, .05 was the illegal limit. Then she stopped, packed up, and went home ... leaving everyone else with the headache!!! • JOAN WHYTE of Kinka Beach loved the poem we carried last week about the green frog in Mery Scope's letterbox ... and she knows just what he means. She has a green facewasher and last week, when using her twin-tub washing machine, she whipped a load into the spin-dryer and let it rip. When she opened the lid, she noticed her facewasher sitting at the bottom but couldn't recall washing it. Anyway, she put her hand in to pull it out ... and her hands closed over a huge green frog!!! • • • BY the way, Joan Whyte, eventually, pulled the frog out of the dryer and set him free on the floor. He just sat there leaning to one side after his trip inside the spin-dryer. It's lucky he didn't croak!!! • • s THINGS people say department ... Pauline Fitzgerald, who just bought Keppel Laminating in Savemore with husband Russell has introduced a new line to add a bit of colour. She rang this week to say she had bought in a lot of colourful kites because they seemed a logical sport for all ages in an area where there was room to move. "I think the kites will take off," she said. Let's hope they do!!! • • • CYCLONES, floods and the resulting chaos, play havoc with newspaper production. The Capricorn Coast Mirror's printer is the Gympie Times, at (wait for it) Gympie. Now, anyone remotely interested in the weatherwould realise that Gympie residents have webbed feet at the moment because of severe flooding. Suzy phoned Gympie on Monday to check how the Mirror would be affected by the flood and the fact that the town was cut off from the Bruce Highway to the north and to the south. The phones were out so the Brisbane office was the next step. Eric Dean, a mate of the Mirror's since before ii first hit the streets in 1983, (and a friend of "Old Baldy" and Suzy for 18 years) said there was nothing to worry about ... contingency plans had already been drawn up to fly the finished pages from Yeppoon to Brisbane, print the paper at that plant, then fly the finished papers back to the Coast ... at no charge to the Mirror. Further details would be worked out on Tuesday. Well, Tuesday 2pm, Gympie Times production manager Wayne Gosley phoned from Gympie to say their paper was coming out by having pages ferried across floodwaters in a boat to the printing plant then ferried from the plant to newsagents ... directly by boat. The only things worrying him were the snakes and live power lines in the floodwaters. He assured Suzy the Mirror would be printed without fail ... at Gympie. The Mirror's carter also assured delivery ... through hail, sleet or snow, and floodwaters. If you're reading this, you'll know they were men of their word! The Mirror commiserates with all people affected by floods and cyclones and praises everyone who regard these trials as bright spots in an otherwise routine life. Thanks!!!
