Yeppoon to get licence centre A SEPARATE transport office will be established in Yeppoon for the convenience of Capricorn Coast residents. Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton said he had made representations to the Government. "It is initially proposed to lease premises to get the project off the ground without having to wait for capital works approval," Mr Hinton said. "A State Government-owned transport office will be provided hopefully in the 1989-90 budget." Mr Hinton said a transport office will alleviate the necessity for Coast residents to travel to Rockhampton for Main Roads registration matters and will be a centre for a full-time drivers' licence testing programme. He said at the present time anyone wanting a drivers' licence test have a two week wait before a testing officer from Rockhampton can action the test. "The office should cut down significantly the clerical work load at Yeppoon Police Station. "I pursued the issue of a separate transport office with Transport Minister Peter McKechnie after conferring with Works Department officers over the re-design and construction date for the remodelling of the Yeppoon Police Station. "The station's design will be considerably affected by the establishment of a transport office as more space will be available, relieving congestion due to the high level of clerical work currently done there." He said Yeppoon Police Station construction will start as soon as the design work is completed by the Works Department in consultation with the Police Department. A site for the transport office has not yet been determined.

JOY Newmann was presented with a Bravery Medal by Governor Sir Walter Campbell on Friday at Government House Brisbane. The bravery award was for a rescue of a boy from the sea in 1985. She received the award for bravery in hazardous circumstances and was given with the approval of Queen Elizabeth II. Joy received the Clarke Silver Medal from the Royal Humane Society in 1988 for the same rescue.

Webber plans Emu Park office LLOYD Webber, the man appointed to fill the vacancy created by former Cr Lawrie Daley's vacancy, said this week he would be looking at meeting ratepayers on a regular basis in Emu's Park Cultural Hall or another central place. He said he understood Emu Park's concern that it was the forgotten area and he would spend the next two years ensuring all areas in division one were fairly treated. "There is obvious concern in Emu Park about lack of representation and I feel one way of repairing any damage that may have been done is to be available in the town," Mr Webber said.

"I will be guided by the town's various groups and organisations and expect to be able to meet residents regularly somewhere such as the Cultural Hall or the library. "The details will be worked out in the next few weeks." He said he felt gratitude for the overwhelming support he received following Lawrie Daley's resignation. "I have been inundated with calls from wellwishers throughout the shire and I realise the difficult task ahead will be to justify the enormous faith these people have placed in me.

"I intend to represent the ratepayers in a fair, honest and responsible way and to the very best of my ability. "My earnest desire is that my supporters and others will now recognise that divisions in any community are almost always counter-productive and we should all co-operate as one in building a better and brighter future for our area and our kids," he said. "Emu Park will not be the forgotten end of the shire, nor will Keppel Sands or Nerimbera. "I will do all in my power to heal the rifts created by a handful of people who fought my nomination for reasons only theywould under-

stand. "I will strive for unity for the battle-scarred Livingstone Shire, but not at the cost of honesty and fairplay. "My fervent hope is that those opposing councillors will now abandon any pre-conceived political hang-ups they had about me and co-operate as a team dedicated to serving the best interests of all ratepayers." Mr Webber will be sworn in on Friday afternoon (today) at Livingstone Shire Council chambers and will then attend his first committee meeting. • See Story pages 2 and 3

WEBBER'S WIN LIKELY TO HEAL RIFT cil had to decide who was going to be first to be voted on. There was no preferential voting or balloting as conducted in local government elections ... someone had to be nominated to fill the vacancy and the councillors had to vote. If the nominated person did not get a majority, that person would be eliminated and council would then have to determine who went second. Sorting this out could have taken all day if the councillors had been unable to agree on who was to go first. But before this could become a problem, Cr Bowen introduced a chairman's minute which called on the council to vote first on Mr Webber because he was the next in line. Cr Webb called out he would second the minute and Cr Bowen reminded him no seconder was needed. Cr Bowen then set out the rules for the debate. There would be a speaker for or against until no one chose to speak then the vote would be taken. Cr Smith spoke first. Commenting on the next in line, Cr Smith said there was "no such thing as a line". People who voted in March, 1988, were asked to elect two winners in division one. They elected two "winners and a series of losers". "That's the bottom line. There is no first, second and third," he said. "I object strongly to this business that we've got to take the next in line." "The decision is ours and I'm disappointed that we've been bashed and lobbied over a thing that, to me, is not as important as road funding. "I don't believe we have to choose the next in line because there isn't a line." Cr Webb, speaking for the motion, said "that's an entirely erroneous view from where I sit." To go away from taking the next in line was against every democratic principle. He alleged there had been voting problems in the election. Cr Webb said a petition had been circulated calling for the vacancy to be filled by someone living in Emu Park yet no one could prove that the votes cast for Mr Webber had not come from the

EIGHT councillors stood on Monday morning to elect Lloyd Webber to fill the vacancy created by former Cr Lawrie Daley's resignation ... and the rift that showed just a fortnight earlier was probably healed. Shire chairman Cr John Bowen and Crs John Dowie, Maurie Webb, Mike Prior, Roy Wall, Ron Landsberg, Glenda Mather and Key Hinz stood in a division that was called by Cr Bowen. Their eight votes were the majority needed to carry the chairman's minute introduced earlier by Cr Bowen which called on Mr Webber, as the next in line, to be the first candidate to be dealt with. Four opposed the appointment: Crs Duncan McDonald, Ellen Cogill, John Smith and Brian Dorey. In all, seven people were nominated to fill the vacancy: • Warren Spreadborough (who had written to shire clerk Jim Brown stating he wished to be considered and was subsequently nominated by Cr Duncan McDonald). • Fred Cowdray (stood at previous election and nominated by Cr Webb). • George Bardrick (nominated by Cr Brian Dorey). • Yvonne Protheroe (nominated by Cr Dowie). • Fay Owens (nominated by Cr Hinz). • Lloyd Webber (nominated by Cr Wall). • Wolfgang Bielharz (nominated by Cr Bowen). The council was facing an explosive situation. It had already debated the petition that had been floating around for a month and that debate had caused friction. Some councillors wanted to receive it others doubted its authenticity and claimed pages of signatures with no detail of what had been signed above were illegal. In the end, council had voted to receive it ... then it faced the problem of having to determine who was going to be the person to fill the vacancy. After the seven had been nominated the counV/

town. He recalled that over drinks after a recent council meeting, he had posed the question what would happen should Cr Daley resign. "A voice loudly proclaimed 'there's no way in the world we're going to have Webber. He's a greenie, and mate of Glenda's (Cr Mather)'," Cr Webb said. He believed it was out of that remark that the petition had been born "and if that was the case, then shame should be directed toward Livingstone". He said council had the opportunity to vote for the next in line to continue being the council it had tried to be. "So many of us have tried so hard to make this show work." Cr Webb said council had been working together. The bulk of votes had been unanimous or there had been only one or two opposed but now the council had its finger on the self-destruct button. This would give the media the opportunity to "slay the council again in big headlines and say they're at it again". "I've tried my heart out here to work with people and make this show work. It disgusts me that this is the way we're going again now," he said. Speaking against the motion was Cr Dorey. He was "astounded" and "disgusted" that Cr Webb had repeated casual words expressed in fellowship". It was a serious situation when members were prepared to "drag anything out of a conversation, when people are totally unguarded, in friendship with each other, and use it in debate". He said the use of terms democratic rights were "hogwash". He held up a copy of the Local Government Act and said that was what guided council ... and the Act said nothing about taking the next in line. "You're going by tradition, moral values, sympathy, emotions ... anything you want to drag up. We all use those around the table but I'm telling you, they're not in the book," he said. Cr John Dowie then spoke for the motion. He had looked at filling the vacancy very seriously and the only thing he could see that some people had against Mr Webber was that "he is not geographically located as well as perhaps some people may think he should be in division one". (Mr Webber lives in the rural area of Cawarral and the,re was a push for a "townie" from Emu Park). If council was going to be influenced by people who live in certain areas it was then going to be deciding on "divisions within divisions". He said some councillors from division three lived some 200km from division one arid were making decisions on division one. "I cannot place any merit on the fact that Lloyd Webber does not live in Emu Park," Cr Dowie said. "I take a particular interest in every division. I've advocated at this table that members should try and visit every division because we, as a council of 13, have to vote on every issue." It could get to the stage where the table worried there was no representative for a particular area such as Keppel Sands. There was no end to that line of thinking. Cr Dowie said should council make the wrong decision it was only two years until the next election when residents could make their own choice. Two years was not a lifetime. Mr Webber has stood twice. "He's made himself available, at least he's done something about it and I don't believe we should ignore the fact that he is the only one who has really fought the issues on the grounds of facing an election." Cr Dowie said he had been appointed to council during the previous term and had faced the last election and had polled well. "So it would appear that the council at that time had made the right decision in the eyes of the public," he said.

For that reason he supported the motion to appoint Mr Webber to the vacancy. Next speaker was Cr Landsberg who replied to Cr Dowie. Speaking as a division three representative he said it was hard to make a decision. "I know it' s hard for you to make a decision but when we come down here we don't know any of these people. We don't know what they stand for. I would like to know a bit more about them before I vote for them," he said. But each councillor had as much power as another when it came to casting a vote ... "that's the way it is and unfortunately we can't do anything about it". Making a further point, Cr Landsberg said he refused to be told by anyone how he should vote. "I take exception to the paper saying that I should vote one way or I should vote the other. I don't like to be told that. I'll stand on my own two feet and I'll vote how I feel." (Cr Landsberg was probably referring to a story in the Capricorn Coast Mirror March 31 edition in which Cr Mather, discussing a no Lice of motion she was introducing calling for the next in line to be appointed, said she expected the motion to be carried because of expected voting. She detailed how most councilors had voted in the past and, referring to Crs Hinz and Landsberg, said they "should vote for it because they, together with others, had walked out of the chamber in protest at the convention not being followed") Cr Mather was next. She started by congratu- ,at lating Cr Bowen on his chairman's minute to ap- point Mr Webber. She alleged there were anomalies at the previous election with 138 ballot papers being returned from the rural area of division one. She said Mr Webber only needed 42 more votes to have won a seat in council. When he had stood for council, he had stood for the whole division, not just his rural area. Yet there was a petition favouring "townies". She said she could understand Emu Park people because they had not had representation but dividing the community was not the answer. Everybody should be pulling together but the people around the council table were going in differentdirections and could not expect the people in the community to do differently. "I personally believe there are power factions in this shire. People hungry for a little bit of ego trips that they can take," she said. "Don't worry mate. She'll be right. I'll fix it for you. I would think we would have everybody's interests at heart. That's what I feel." Referring to the "casual words of fellowship that somebody would prefer not to be highlighted" Cr Mather said she would have nominated Mr Webber but Cr Wall beat her to it. "He wasn't my choice. He was the people's third choice. It just so happens that at this time, I think he is the best man for the job. "He's sincere in what he believes and he woule have everybody's interests at heart. That's why I would have nominated him." But someone had told her two days before that if she nominated him she would be signing "Lloyd's death warrant". She wanted to know why everything she put up was quashed. "What have they got against me?" she said. "Is it because I ask too many questions?" Cr Mather said Mr Webber had never been to her place and she had never been to his and they had never attended "any function ... any function, together". He was not her friend and whoever had made • CONTINUED ON PAGE 3

Conservationists attend State talks held at Emu Park REPRESENTATIVES of 20 Queensland conservation groups attended a two-day State conference and seminar at Emu Park on the weekend. The conference was organised by the Queensland Conservation Council, the co-ordinating body for conservation groups throughout the State and was attended by conservationists from Cooktown to the Gold Coast as well as from the major state bodies based in Brisbane. Queensland Conservation Council co-ordinator Liz Bourne said major topics discussed at the conference included pollution, recycling, national parks, coastal management issues, wetland destruction, rainforests, land degradation and the implications of the greenhouse effect for Queensland. There are now 253 tourist development proposals for the Queensland coast. Many of these are in environmentally sensitive, unstable or unsuitable areas. Because of the financial constraints, conservation groups in Queensland had been unable to meet together as often as theywould like and the weekend's state conference was the first to be organised for more than a decade. Delegates pressed for more regular meetings, at least annually. The groups represented were: Wilderness - Society; Australian Conservation Foundation; Australian Littoral Society; Queensland Conservation Council; Capricorn Conservation Council; North Queensland Conservation Council; Queensland National Parks Association; Friends of Currumbin; Gold Coast Protection League; Group Against Sewage Pollution (GASP); 10 WPSQ branches.

• ABOVE: A $5572.67 cheque was handed over to the Don Ireland Swimming Pool Complex on Sunday afternoon by Ray Large.

ROUND-UP PICNIC COMMITTEE GIVES POOL $5600 EMU Park's past has helped Emu Park's future when a $5572.67 cheque was given to the Don Ireland Swimming Pool Complex Committee by the Round-up Picnic Committee. The Round-up Picnic Committee was formed on July 26, 1951. It was formed for the purpose of seeking the co-operation of Emu Park people to organise a day of sport to cater for a large number of visitors expected to be attracted to Rockhampton for the Rocky Round-up. The rodeo was to be held from September 30 to October 1 and the Emu Park function was to provide a continuity of entertainment for the rodeo and other visitors. Mr Rex Pilbeam attended the meeting as Rockhampton Agricultural Society secretary. Also present were Messrs C Tennent, Bennett, Pill, T Smithwick, R Large, W Mills, K Nixon, P Stanton, McLeod, A Shaw and Mrs Shaw.

Webber fills vacancy

• CONTINUED FROM PAGE 2 the casual remark after council had "better their facts straight". She said she felt Mr Webber would give "adequate, and more, representation" to the division. Cr Cogill was the next speaker. She said council faced a simple job to fill a vacancy and it should keep it simple. Cr Wall told council he had been appointed twice and "had been down that line". He said Mr Webber had twice faced the electors, was a successful businessman and "he has done nothing that I am aware of to upset the community at any stage". Referring to other councilors' remarks on the "media campaign", Cr Wall said he had not taken part in a campaign but he felt publicity had been directed at the petition and wondered how many signatures had actually been collected. He urged councillors to support Mr Webber because he had stood twice for council. After Cr Wall finished, Cr Bowen called for a speaker against the motion and Cr Dorey rose. Cr Bowen reminded him he had already spoken and called for another speaker against. When there wasn't another, Cr Bowen said the vote would take place and he called for a division, meaning each council had to stand to signify for or against. After the vote was determined to be 8-4 for Mr Webber, Cr Bowen moved on to other business. That night, a television report spoke of "council taking a new direction by appointing Mr Webber". It's hard to see Mr Webber's appointment changing council's direction because there does not appear to be any actual direction to change. The council, since assuming office in April last year, has mostly been a cohesive unit. There have been spats, there have been shouts ... but this council is a far cry from the councils of the past. Last week, the Mirror said "council's fragile

The minutes of a meeting held after the first `Round-up Picnic' showed a nett profit for the day of 302 pounds, nine shillings and 11 pence ($605.90). In 1952 it was resolved that nett proceeds be added to a 'Jetty Building Fund' and from then on a push began for the construction of jetty at Emu Park to replace or extend the jetty built in 1924. Despite the success of subsequent 'Round-up Picnics' and representation to government, the jetty did not eventuate and the project languished. A substantial donation was made by the committee to assist with the construction of the Singing Ship memorial at Emu Park.

The balance has been held until now when the remaining members decided to donate the entire amount to the Don Ireland Swimming Pool Complex Committee. Before doing so, the committee looked at a number of other alternatives but considered the pool to be the most 'community-based' venture at the most deserving at this time. A $5572.67 cheque was handed over by foundation member Ray Large to Don Ireland Swimming Pool Complex Committee treas-. urer Dalina Kelly and president Trevor Gardner on Sunday, April 23, 1989 ... 37 Years after the Round-up Picnic committee was formed. The handover closed a chapter in Emu Park's history.

Mr Webber's appointment is likely to return council to the path it was on. He may well vote against some issues but whoever was appointed would have had the same opportunity. As Cr Webb pointed out, the majority of issues have been resolved unanimously or with only one or two against, therefore it is unlikely Mr Webber will bring about much change to the numbers ... but he will provide division one with the second voice that has been missing for four months.

Coast TAFE set for July start A COLLEGE of TAFE operates in conjunction with a College Community Council. The council's functions: to assist the college in meeting on-going and emergent needs in vocational education, training and adult education and to forge the strongest possible links between the college and business, industry, commerce and the community. The council may appoint sub-committees and co-opt other assistance as required to assist it. It also takes part in deciding what courses and activities the college will have; identify the community's need in vocational education, training and adult education; assess the required resources to provide courses and activities. Council members are obliged to attend council meetings and should attend functions and meetings that will contribute td the enhancement of services offered by the college; participate in all decisions of the council; work on behalf of the college so the community will support the college and aim to make decisions on the basis of majority views. Once decisions are made the members are bound by the decision. The Capricorn Coast TAFE Centre College Community Council is chaired by Bruce McGregor. Bruce was Yeppoon State High School deputy principal and is now curriculum co-ordinator at St Brendan's College. He is Yeppoon State High School Parents and Citizens Association president and has been involved in community activities for many years. Mick Cranny, Cr John Dowie, Cr Mike Prior, Barry Schmidt and Suzy Watson are the other council members with experience in community service, primary industry and business. Stage one (proposed starting date, July 3, 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. Next week this column will carry the results of the questionnaire held during the past fortnight.

Nursing home plans on display PLANS for the new $2million nursing home, with full air conditioning, will be available on display at Livingstone Shire Coizricil within a week. Public inspection of the plans at Livingstone Shire Council by interested community groups and individuals is invited and any constructive comments in relation to the plans may be forwarded to the Rockhampton Hospital Board. Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton said Health Minister Ivan Gibbs was successful in obtaining additional funding of $214,000 for the home to provide total air-conditioning, after submitting the proposal to State Cabinet. Mr Hinton said he sought the additional funding after design and construct contractor J M Kelly Pty Ltd submitted a plan to the Works Department that included air-conditioning in the living areas and not the bedrooms. "I am grateful for the assistance of Central Queensland Community Health director Dr Ken Burns who supplied detailed information in relation to the stress factors involved with heat and elderly people who could be expected to enjoy a longer life span in a controlled environment, as well as greater comfort," Mr Hinton. "It will also obviate the sand-fly problem from Fig Tree Creek, which was of concern to the Rockhampton Hospital Board."

EMU PARK Kindergarten has been given a refund of all general rates paid plus 25 per cent of service charges but will not be given a refund of $127 paid in building fees. The kindergarten told council the building fees had been paid for an extension to the main building. Shire accountant Denis Murphy told council a cheque for $438 would soon be sent to the group for the refund of rates and service charges. He said it could be demonstrated that adequate consideration had been given to the kindergarten in the area of refunds.

MILLIE and Ted Hawkswell had their 50th wedding anniversary on April 9. One of their guests was bridesmaid Lucy Maloney. The couple attribute their years of happiness to cooperation and mutual understanding. The celebration party at the Masonic clubrooms was in the form of a luncheon. The party was entertained by Pat Browne, Reg West, Harry and Joan Dendle and Col Black (who accompanied Lucy Maloney on the spoons). Millie and Ted's cake was a gift from their son Dennis and his wife Valda. *** DATE CLAIMER: Saturday, May 6. Under 18 disco, Yeppoon High stadium, 7.30pm to 10pm. *** YEPPOON Community Health's free programme to help people give up smoking is on May 8 in the new Community Health Centre at 7pm. The new centre is Como Units on the Yeppoon Beachfront. The four week course is in eight sessions so there is plenty of support and encourageqtent from within the group, plus assistance in gaining an understanding of the smoking habit and its influence. The course has proved popular in the past. It takes courage and effort to give up smoking, but past successful quitters have thought it well worth the effort. If you want to overcome your smoking habit, join Judy and Jane on Monday, May 8. Phone first, 391469, to register because numbers may be limited. *** HAVE you ever wondered what happened to money you donated to Coast organisations? Well, if you took part in last year's Keppel Coast Guide Hobby Horse Derby go to the hut in Arthur Street, Yeppoon and see the new roofed open area. Last year's Hobby Horse supplied the materials and Yeppoon Lions Club and some guiding fathers gave the labour ... great combination. This year's, the ninth, Hobby Horse Derby (Saturday, May 27) will improve the toilets. The Lions, working under the supervision of president Glen Alexander have worked tirelessly for four weeks to build the roofed and cemented outside area. The open area will be invaluable for the girls and their leaders for activities. Guiding is grateful to the Coast community for its support in the annual Hobby Horse Derby and to Yeppoon Lions for their labour. ***

The Jan Moore Academy of Dancing made an appearance and thrilled the audience with their tap and cabaret dancing. Yeppoon Pensioners League appreciates the provision of free transport by Yeppoon Rotary which has given this service to Yeppoon pensioners since the concerts started. Members of Mt Morgan Pensioners League were also at the concert. *** IT is becoming widely known that if a woman feels confident about giving birth to her baby, she will handle the labour and delivery more easily and in fact will probably enjoy the early days of parenting more. It is a wonderful start for a newborn baby to have a mother and father who display confidence and enjoyment in their baby. How does a woman and her partner gain more confidence in the birthing and early parenting process? By discussing her hopes and fears with other pregnant women and their partners at New and Pregnant Parents Support (NAPPS) Childbirth Classes. Also through relaxation, exercise, visualisation, enhancement of communication and assertiveness skills, knowledge of the birthing process and guided activities by a qualified educator specialising in childbirth education. Classes run for six weeks (plus a post-natal reunion if it can be arranged) and start on Wednesday, May 10 at 7.30pm at the Community Health Centre, Yeppoon. NAPPS is a locally based, voluntary association which relies on community support to continue to provide this quality service. Inquiries and enrolments: 39 4523.

CAPRICORN Coast businesses employing trainees under the general office traineeship model before May this year will be able to send their employees to a day release office course in Rockhampton. The course will run at Rockhampton's TAFE on Thursday and Friday of each week from May to October. finishing with a three week block component in October. The starting date is May 4. Time is running out and positions for the day release course are limited. Anyone interested can contact Lee Sunderland, 31 6600, to learn more about the general office and other traineeships. Employers can convert an existing office employee to the traineeship scheme and can also employ relatives. Local employers who want to participate in the traineeship system should take this opportunity to benefit from the convenience of a day release arrangement. In past years trainees have had to be sent to colleges in Brisbane and Townsville for up to five weeks at a time to fulfill the off-the-job component of the traineeship. The main requirement is that the trainee be aged 16 to 18 years with 15 and 19 year-olds able to be considered as well. There are many benefits to the employer: financial assistance; well-trained and committed staff and reduced wage costs. College training is provided free-of-charge and trainees benefit from the broader training opportunities and the attainment of a certificate of proficiency recognised throughout Australia. Traineeships are mini-apprenticeships giving applicants the chance to learn a broad range of skills, both on and off-the-job, in a year. New industry areas are being developed all the time and applicants can now choose from: automotive replacement parts, tyre services and radiator repairs; aluminium fabrication; civic construction; concrete worker; clothing machinist; transport freight operations; furniture removals; hospitality; local government field construction and maintenance; office general commerce, legal, local government and insurance; retail; rural - sheep or cattle; seafood handling; nursetyhand; public service; warehousing and travel. The Capricorn Coast has about 10 people in retail, local government, legal office, general office and nursery hand areas who have entered the traineeship scheme. Traineeship consultant Lee Sunderland said the employer and employee benefited from the programme. "The employer is able to fall back on his trainee if another staff member is away sick or on holidays because he has someone else trained to fill that position," he said. "The employee gains experience in a number of areas. Instead of being allotted one job the person covers a broad range of skills." He said Federal and State governments talked with Industry and Union representatives to develop the traineeship scheme. A traineeship lasts 12 months with a four to five week probation period. "This was a time for both applicants and employers to work out if they are able to carry out traineeship requirements," Mr Sunderland said. "The role of TAFE was to enforce on-the-job training and any aspects not covered at work. Communication skills, functional maths, grooming and work attitudes, are all covered. "Trainees are expected to fill out a log book, recording training and activities learnt daily.

The employer also has to fill out the book with details on what work areas the trainee has covered. "An employer's role was to provide the training. The traineeship scheme alleviates the employer's greatest disadvantage ... the time and effort lost in teaching an applicant," he said. "There is a commitment from both the employer and employee. The employer is expected to allow a trainee time to attend TAFE but they are only expected to pay trainees three-quarters of the award wage because onequarter of their time is spent at college. Employers are also eligible for financial relief. Each employer receives $1000 for a trainee and up to a further $1000 in special cases. The CES judged each case and depending on how disadvantaged - Aboriginal, sole parents, long-term unemployed or disability - an employer may be entitled to further benefits.

ANZAC DAY - BORING ON TV TO CHILDREN SO IT MUST BE BORIA • By Farnborough Primary School principal John Runham, who gave the Anzac Day address at the Yeppoon Cenotaph on Tuesday. Just what is meant by Anzac Day? In the past few weeks since I was asked to give this address, I' ve had tune to reflect and consider this question. To help me I asked my class of Year 6s and 7s to write down, without prompting from me, what they thought Anzac Day meant. Their answers were quite enlightening. Some admitted that they didn't quite know, some indicated that it was a day of remembrance, while others said that they although they hadn't exactly been to an Anzac Day service, they had seen it on TV and to quote "when there's things on TV I just think they're dead boring so I gather that if the things on the television are boring so must the live procession be." I am saddened to think that real life is judged from a television presentation and I sincerely hope that you who have joined us have found that it's not quite as boring in real life! My memories of Anzac Day goes back to the late '40s and early '50s when there were a lot more original Diggers around than there are today and to the addresses at school by mates of my grandfather like Bill Young and Robbie Robertson who had been there at Gallipoli with him. Through their eyes, my generation was introduced to the Anzac legend and began to understand something of the horrors and sadness of war. At home I remember a grandfather who rarely spoke of what he had seen and heard, despite that fact that he had been in the thick of it;'had been awarded a Military Medal while serving as a medic at Gallipoli and had experienced the gas-

sing and quagmires of France. He only opened up when one of his old wartime mates dropped in for a quiet drink or to play a game of chess. The scars had run very deep. Yet he was one of the fortunate ones who returned and for a time in the 1930s was Head Teacher of Leichhardt Ward Boys in Rockhampton. But what exactly is Anzac Day? Firstly, I believe it is a day of remembrance. A day on which we remember those gallant men and women of many generations who have selflessly given themselves to aid our nation in time of war. Patsy Adam-Smith in her book "The ANZACS" began her preface with the statement of General William Sherman, "War is Hell" and she continued, "It is time to strip the film from honourdimmed eyes and face the uncomfortable, terrible facts as well as the emotion-stirring flutter of pennants and the silvery cries of trumpets and the beating of drums. War is hell. But in our attempt to denegrate it, to outlaw it, we must remember

sons and granddaughters have followed in that tradition and it is up to us of the present generation to carry on and continue to make Australia a great nation. It is not an easy road. Lastly, I believe it should be a day of vision. One of my pupils wrote of Anzac Day, "It doesn't mean much to me because I'd rather think about things that are happening and are going to happen, not things that have happened." Yes, it's very true that we should not spend an inordinate amount of time looking to the past, regretting our failures, reminiscing on our successes but that we should be looking to the future and be eager to progress to better things. I know that as I look out at the upcoming generation, my children, that they are looking forward to the time when they are adults and are eager to change the world to be abetter place than it is today. They are young men and women of vision. But can I sound a word of warning... someone once said "Those who do not learn from history are bound to repeat it!"


THE following poem was submitted by B Chapman so people will know who composed the lines used in the Anzac service. The poem, 'For the Fallen' was by Laurence Binyon for the 1914-1918 war. He was an English poet and art critic born in Lancaster on August 10, 1869 and educated at Oxford University. He published many books in relation to art and was editor of The Golden Treasury of Modern Lyrics' published in 1925. Laurence Binyon died on March 10, 1943 at Reading in England.

not to castigate the victims of war - and every man who fights is a victim. We must remember that the hand that holds the weapon is not he who plans or benefits from the battle." Yes, by our gathering together here today, we do not glorify war, but we gather to pay due honour to those who have suffered on our behalf in the many theatres of war around the world. Secondly, I believe it is a day of reflection. Those Australian soldiers who landed on the Gallipoli peninsula in the early hours of Sunday, April 25, 1915, made history and established a tradition which I hope will never disappear from the Australian way of life. The tradition of mateship, humour and determination to carry out the task even under the most adverse of situations. Those soldiers displayed to the world that Australia had come of age and we were no longer a collection of separate colonies, but a nation, ready to take its place on the stage of world history. To borrow a phrase from Slim Dusty, 'They did us proud". Their sons and daughters, grand-

• ABOVE: Emti Park's Anzac Day march was large and pictured are the Diggers who led it.

With proud thanksgiving, a mother for her children, England mourns for her dead across the sea. Flesh of her flesh they were, spirit of her spirit, Fallen in the cause of the free. Solemn the drums thrill: Death august and royal Sings sorrow up into immortal spheres. There is music in the midst of desolation And a glory that shines upon our tears. They went with songs to the battle, they were young, Straight of limb, true of eye, steady and aglow. They were staunch to the end against odds uncounted, They fell with their faces to the foe. They shall not grow old, as we that are left grow old: Age shall not weary them, not the years condemn. At the going down of the sun and in the morning We will remember them.

They mingle not with their laughing comrades again; They sit no more at familiar tables at home; They have no lot in our labour of the day-time: They sleep beyond England's foam. But where our desires are and our hopes profound, Felt as a well-spring that is hidden from sight, To the innermost heart of their own land they are known As the stars are known to the Night; As the stars that shall be bright when we are dust, Moving in marches upon the heavenly plain, As the stars that are starry in the time of our darkness, To the end, to the end, they remain.

1G IN REAL LIFE (As Mr Runham said these words there was a loud 'hear, hear' from the assembled Diggers). Yes, set your sights high, but do not forget the lessons of history. Do not forget the past but learn from it. Rev. J. Prowse of Bundaberg summed it all up in his address on Anzac Day, 1921, when he said, "They died that wicked war may cease. We must not forget that, we must live and pray and work for a warless world, for a time when: The war drum throbs no longer, and the battle flag is furled, In the Parliament of man, The Federation of the world. Our fallen heroes died to make their country great, prosperous and happy. We must live to turn that ideal into reality." Yes, on this the 74th anniversary of the landing on Gallipoli, let us honour those men and women who have gone before and resolve *o continue their struggle to make this work a better and a more peaceful place for all mankind.

Are you female, fit and 17 and looking for $450 a week? ARE you female? Aged 17 or more? Are you fit? Do you enjoy a challenge? Would you like to earn $450 a week? If the answers to these questions are yes ... think about joining the Army. In fact, stop thinking about it. This has to be the best job opportunity available to young women in Australia today. There is an entrance examination to pass but it seems candidates who have been educated in Queensland and want to join will find they have what it takes. In fact, anyone with Year 10 eduation is well on their way to enlisting. Warrant Officer Bob Stockwell is the man involved in signing up young women and fmds it strange that right now, the Army has a shortage of recruits. Aside from the excitement that the Army offers compared with civilian life, the pay, alone, must be the greatest inducement to anyone looking for a career. "That's the major difference," W/O Stockwell said. "The Army offers a career. Its not a 9-to-5 routine ... its a lifestyle." For young people who already doubt their future is linked with the Army he asks them to consider: • Recruits sign on for only four years. That's the first step but after four years' service, discharge can be arranged after six months' notice. There's no need to sign away your life ... those days are gone. • The Army provides all education at its expense. This means recruits can learn a trade, or a profession, at Army expense. These skills can be used in civilian life and give any recruit a head start on the future. • The Army has 21 different corps and there's definitely one to suit sOmeone on the Capricorn Coast. But knowing which to choose is the problem only civilians face. In the Army, there's regular aptitude testing and careers advisers. The recruits' skills will be matched to their jobs. • The Army places a lot of emphasis on sport and team and group activities. In other words, there's no need to be lonely ... there's always someone who wants to hit a ball and so on. Looked at another way, the Army pays Australia's youth to be fit. • There's no medical bills, no dental bills, no clothing bills ... the Army pays the lot. • Housing, the shock/horror story of today with high interest rates, is another story altogether in the Army ... all recruits are provided with subsidised accommodation for about $45 a week ... and that charge includes three meals a day! By the way, after the initial six months' training, there's no requirement to live in the barracks ... recruits are free to choose their own housing provided they turn up for work each day. W/O Stockwell arrived in Yeppoon on Wednesday and was prepared to talk to any amount of young women interested in joining the Army. But no one turned up! Yet there are vacancies each month for 40 young women ... and there will be 40 more vacancies next month when W/O Stockwell turns up again. He will return to Yeppoon on Wednesday, May 24, and will conduct interviews at the Commonwealth Employment Office in Normanby Street, Yeppoon, from 9am. Call at the CES before May 24 and fix a time to meet him. Anyone wanting information before his next visit can phone (071) 73 1152 reverse charges and they will be sent brochures and full details. By the way, if you're male and you want top pay as described by W/O Stockwell, phone the same number reverse charges ... but males have to wait a little longer for entry. Right now, females can be accepted within six weeks and males within six months. "Anyone thinking the Army is better than unemployment should think again ... the Army is better than many civilian jobs," W/O Stockwell said.

180 at meeting SANDMINING A GUARANTEED CONTROVERSY call for more information MORE than 180 people filled Yeppoon Surf Life Saving Club to standing-room-only capacity last week and unanimously called for a more detailed information on sand mining proposals for Shoalwater Bay. The meeting moved the following motion unanimously "That this meeting demands that an enviromental inquiry under the Impact of Proposals Act be carried out or, at the least, that a proper comprehensive and independent EIS conforming to the Act be conducted before any leases are granted or any mining is permitted or any export licences be given to any sand mining proposal on the Capricorn Coast." The meeting started with a "journey" of slide photographs along the Coast to Shoalwater Bay from Corio Bay, showing the Coast and areas to be mined 50km north of the Coast. A councillor of the Wildlife Preservation Society of Queensland and secretary of Capricorn Conservation Council, John McCabe, spoke as the slides changed. Wildlife Preservation Society Capricorn Coast branch president Pat O'Brien said this week it was the first time many people had been able to see the area that was to be affected. Dr Mike Coates, lecurer in biology at CIAE, spoke on the draft EIS and made three points: * There were similarities between Pivot's Draft EIS and the Draft EIS for the ill-fated Wesley Vale Paper Mill proposal. * He told why he believed the DEIS should be done again by and independent body. * He explained how sand dunes worked, how they store water and how vegetation was established on dune systems. The man who is accredited with stopping sand mining on Fraser Island, John Sinclair, was the next speaker. He said sand miners should not be allowed to get a toe-hold on the Capricorn Coast. He said this area should clearly be identified with unpolluted beaches, unlike areas to the north and south where pollution had occurred. Mr O'Brien said Mr Sinclair told the meeting there was a real need to "retain our squeaky clean image for our tourist industry". Mr Sinclair is involved in the tourism indus-' try. He takes 4WD and other camping tours to the West and to Fraser Island. Overseas tourists had seen the Sydney pollution on television and were aware that Australia was getting like all other holiday destinations. He told the meeting everyone "must fight to preserve what we have". Mr O'Brien said Mr Sinclair was familiar with this area through his conservation activities. Mr Sinclair also spoke of the abundance of mineral sands in Australia, and in the world, and discussed the very large depost at Horsham in Victoria. In NSW, mining was now beeing carried on in former sugar can farms (which had been degraded by agriculture) rather than environmentally sensitive areas. He closed his talk with a screening of aerial slides showing sand mines on Fraser and North Stradbroke Is. Mr O'Brien said the devastation that was apparent in the aerial slides prompted the motion that closed the meeting.

SANDMINING was described as "guaranteed to cause controversy wherever it is suggested" by Capricorn Coast Chamber of Commerce and Industry president Tony Millroy when he opened a meeting last week to discuss the Pivot Group plans for Shoalwater Bay. The meeting was hosted by the chamber at Bayview Tower so Pivot could answer prepared and on-the-spot questions from Coast business people and residents. "We are here tonight to search for some answers to a divisive and complex problem," Mr Millroy said. "The issue of sandmining is one that is guaranteed to cause controversy wherever it is suggested. Because of past disasters the very mention of the term can evoke emotional outbursts throughout the entire community. "Here on the Capricorn Coast a proposal has been put forward by Pivot Group to dredge for mineral sands on special Federal leases in the Shoalwater Bay Military training area, predominantly the Port Clinton area." He said locals felt protective about these areas because of "their pristine natural beauty Mid ecological importance". "The area is known to be not only rich in mineral sands, but also in natural and archaeological history. "The community's knowledge of this proposal is scratchy to say the least and there are a lot of misconceptions and fallacies going around the community. "Rumour and innuendo have no part in the decision-making process of such an important and complex issue. The local community must know all the facts before making a decision on their stance." Mr Millroy introduced Pivot Group managing director Peter Searson to answer the questions. Pat O'Brien and the Capricorn Coast ALP branch asked who owned the Pivot Group. "Pivot is owned 100 per cent by Peter Laurence, an Australian, and his private family companies. A major interest in Pivot Group was acquired in July 1984 by Peter Laurence and his private family companies. Pivot Group is a national corporation with investments in three states of Australia. One of our major assets is Sea World on the Gold Coast and we are the operator and the major owner. "Board of directors: PLM chairman/owner Sir Roderick Proctor, a qualified accountant and highly regarded corporate director who has been chairman of a number of Queensland's largest corporations; Joe Ganim, director, senior partner of the Queensland law firm Hopgood and Ganim; Ian Laurence, executive director, a former school teacher and Western Australian member of parliament, brother to Peter Laurence; myself (Peter Searson) managing director and I have been associated with Peter Laurence for 14 years. I am also chairman of Neptune Oceanic Foundation, the first marine research foundation in Australia." Mr O'Brien's second question: What steps will Pivot take to dispose of low level radioactive residue under the stockpiles when mining has finished. "The company ensures categorically there will be no stockpile of radioactive material and there will be no hazard to human health." Mr O'Brien: The DEIS does not explain how Pivot arrived at the conclusion that sandmining was the most important land use for that area of Shoalwater Bay. How was this conclusion reached. "This area was identified over 30 years ago for its heavy minerals mining potential and the company has always intended to mine these areas." Questions asked by CIAE lecturer in Biology Dr Milce Coates: What provisions have been

made for conducting an extensive archaeological survey of all the proposed mining leases? "An archaeological survey will be conducted prior to mining." What steps will be taken to inform the public of the results of the survey? "There is no legal requirement to provide such information but I am sure the various relevant government authorities will be seeking the results of such surveys." Which Aboriginal bodies are to be liaised with in determining the cultural significance of particular sites? "This will be determined by the relevant State and Federal authorities." What safeguards will be in place during mining operations to protect the archaeological sites in those areas to be mined? "As a result of the studies to be undertaken, guidelines will be set down by the relevant government authorities which Pivot will adhere to. What provisions are being made for an extensive environmental impact study which will be carried out by biologists and geologistswho are both competent and independent? "Pivot Group commissioned Dames and Moore, an international environmental consulting company recognised as being both competent and independent to conduct the environmental impact study." Would Pivot Group care to revise their predictions about the effectiveness of rehabilitation after sandmining, in the light of these considerations, which were not taken into account in the draft environmental impact study. "The rehabilitation proposed in the EIS is considered to be effective." Questions asked by Cam Talbot: The route the access road to the mining leases will take? "The route to and from the mine site will be via the Yeppoon/Byfield road. A new link road will be constructed to access the dry mill, completely bypassing Yeppoon." If this road to the leases passes close to the township of Stockyard Point, would the Pivot Group allow access to private individuals, either to Stockyard block holders or the general public? "The road does not go close to Stockyard Point. However all roads used by the Pivot Group outside the military training area are available for public use." Questions from chambers of commerce: What environmental safeguards will be provided at the processing plant? "The environmental safeguards proposed will conform to local, State and Federal air, noise and water quality requirements. The type of processing envisaged utilises a water process such that water will be continually recycled and supplemented by local water supply." Is it correct that the water tables/basin courses above and/or below the ground will not be damaged/affected/altered or interfered with in any way? "Yes, to ensure no effect, further hydrology studies will be carried out prior to mining." What commitment, both written and monetary, can be expected for road funding, maintenance of the road and environmental safeguards? "A written commitment has already been provided to the Livingstone Shire Council that the company is prepared to contribute a fair and equitable share for road funding sand maintenance. On environmental safeguards, these will be covered by Federal and State laws which Pivot will comply with." What speed restrictions will apply to the trucks carrying sand to the processing plant and subsequent return trip? "Whatever the current state road laws existing at various timeswill be complied with by the company." What signage will be implemented for local residents and their children along the route? "Signs will be erected as directed by the Department of Transport." What signage will be implemented for the tourist/traveller who is unaware of the sandmining and the resultant use of the road by 'heavy vehicles'? "Signs will be erected as directed by the Department of Transport." What decision has been made for the processed sand? If it is to be used on the foreshores of Yeppoon beaches from where is the sand replacement for the sandmined areas to come for the reconstruction and reforestation? "What minimal residual sands that are left will be backloaded and returned to the site for reconstruction and reforestation." What financial benefit will be earned from this project, other than wages, for Livingstone Shire; Central Queensland? "Significantly increased earning capacity for local business; increased infrastructure development. This industry is a major contributor of commonwealth taxes, rates, royalties and government charges payable to all levels of government." Questions asked by the Capricorn Coast ALP branch: What current sandmining leases are held by the group? Are any leases currently operational? Where, if any, are they? "Four leases are held over a small area of

Fraser Island. We also hold five authority-toprospect on the Queensland coast in the Glad stone area. None of these are operational." What are the current known Australian and world-wide deposits of the main minerals Rutile, Zircon and Ilmenite? "This is unknown, however there has been a strong continuing demand world-wide for all these heavy minerals in recent years. Australia supplies a significant quantity of these minerals." Assuming that, within the conditions of the Commonwealth Environment Protection (impact of proposals) Act Government approval and export licences are extended but nevertheless, due to public pressure and/or market circumstances the venture does not proceed - would Murphyores press for financial compensation? "At this stage I will state that commonsense has prevailed at all levels of government and corporate negotiations, but should this situation eventuate I'm sure commonsense will still prevail in resolving any outstanding issues." Has the group considered alternative transport arrangements other than that which involves the use of very heavy trucks along the route outlined in the draft EIS. "Yes, the company has considered the use of barges direct from mine site to a port, but on current proven reserves this method is not economical. With the ever evolving technology available to us today, I'm sure other alternatives may arise, which are commercially viable, and we will investigate these opportunities as they arise. What firm financial commitment would the company make to the upgrading and maintenance of local roads if the currently proposed route were adopted? "This was answered in question three of those asked by Mr T Millroy." Does the company recognise the significance to the local, State and National economies of the area being alternatively exploited for its national estate, ecological and tourism values. "Yes." Will the company comment on the view that within their proposal there is a risk of pollution of freshwater supplies, siltation of seagrass beds, swamp salinity and radiation from concentrated stockpiles? "The expert environmental study states there are no likely risks in these areas, however we have already commented that further water table hydrology studies will be commissioned and we have already discussed the stockpiling issue." Has the company EIS given due regard to the impact of a projected increase in cyclonic activity in future years and the rise in sea water height resulting from a warmer atmosphere and concomitant 'greenhouse effects'? "Yes. The occurrence of tropical cyclone activity in the area is likely to become more frequent over the next 20 to 50 years. "At the same time, the second aspect of increased sea level would result in the inundation of parts of the lease areas, possible erosion of the minerals and additional restrictions on access to the area. "Both these occurrences would impose limitations on mining of the area if it had not commenced by that time and would most likely result in the project not proceeding. "It is consequently important that the project proceed and the mineral be recovered prior to these occurrences. "It should be noted that neither the mining operation in itself nor the ultimate use of the products will be significant contributors to the build-up in gases associated with the greenhouse factor."

Let's run it up the... QUEENSLAND DAY will be celebrated within Livingstone Shire by at least running the Queensland Flag up the flagpole ... but any other plans are subject to budget constraint. Premier Mike Ahern wrote to council seeking support in planning this year's Queensland Day celebrations on Tuesday, June 6. He said 1989 was the State's 130th birthday. June 6, 1859, was the date on which Queensland became a separate entity from New South Wales. Shire clerk Jim Brown told council in a report it had not actively participated in previous Queensland Days and no resources had been set aside in the budget for promotional efforts. Cr Brian Dorey moved that council should consider "an event" for next year's Queensland Day when considering the 1989/90 budget. Cr Maurie Webb wanted to at least "appear to be interested this year". "Why wait until 1990?" he said. He suggested that at the least, council should issue a statement to the Press that Livingstone Shire was in the business of celebrating Queensland Day. Cr Dorey incorporated the suggestion in his motion and it was passed. At the close of debate, Cr Webb said council could at least run up a flag.

Heinemann: I supported Tennant

the open.

was written in the letter to the editor, 'Confusion over quality remark'. - Cr Brian Dorey, 48 Scenic Highway, Cooee Bay, Yeppoon. 4703.

IN reply to 'Confusion Over Quality Remark' in last week's Mirror. I was more confused over how the letter was written than the letter writer was about the word 'quality'. But I have spoken with the writer, Peter Watson of Cawarral, who has admitted the words did not convey what he really meant to say because assistance was given in it s writing. Mr Watson wanted to say he supported that the next candidate in line in division one of Livingstone Shire Council should replace Cr Lawrie Daley who resigned earlier this month.

Mr Watson is entitled to that opinion, but it is not a requirement of the Local Government Act. Therefore the council table can elect anyone who qualifies as a resident on the electoral role in Livingstone Shire. Whereas it is most likely the candidate would be picked from division one, the nominee could live anywhere in the Shire. You cannot take away from any councillor the right to act on his own judgement to make a decision on who should be elected to replace Cr Daley. In making that decision, a councillor has to make an assessment on the qualities (something special about an object that makes it what it is) offered by the candidates to fulfill the position to which he or she is going to be elected - and of course that same decision is made on that basis at every election in arty organisation providing the candidate qualifies to be elected under the constitution. The strong loyalties of a candidate would I hope be to an oath of allegiance to Livingstone Shire Council and to Australia as a citizen to which I adhere too - not to the mixed up political insinuation of your written garbage. The loyalties to God, Queen and any political party in my mind are personal issues. With reference to your comments on journalists and reporting. If you wish to question the ethics of a journalist or biased reporting I suggest you get your facts right and come out in

District Pairs in final stages IN Yeppoon Bowls Club competition the District Pairs has reached the stage where it only has to play the final with Terry Woodbridge and Frank Birkett against Tom Roos and Frank O'Brien. Eric Austin and Peter Brown held Terry Woodbridge and Frank Birkett for the first half of their semi-final, but remained on six for four ends and then stayed on eight for a further six ends. This enabled Terry and Frank to run out comfortable winners 20-15. In the other semi Tom Roos and Frank O'Brien struggled to keep in the game against Barry Atkinson and Bill Roberts. On the 10th Tom and Frank scored a seven and scored a five on the 15th ... this put them in front, 22-12. Barry and Bill finished strongly with 23-24. A couple of games were played in the District Triples and in the first Barry Atkinson played with Tom Roos and they also had Kev Thompson in the team. They led early from Eric Austin, Peter Brown and Bill Manthey who, by the 10th end, had caught up with the board reading six all. Barry and Co continued on to win 17/12 in a low scoring game. Peter Cowie, Goldie Corbett and Roy Graff, who subbed for Norm Myler, went down 23-16 to Scott McClymont, Laurie Collins and Harry McNamara. After 14 ends Goldie led 15-11 but scored only one single in the last seven ends. Norm Richards, Keith McKimmie and Graham McCosker won their game against Ernie O'Sullivan, Fred Baker and Barry Quigley 2118. Barry's crew never at any stage hit the lead and a couple of fours at the death made their score respectable. Clarrie Hinton whitewashed Harry McNamara 25-2. Reg Gibbins and George Cavanagh had a close tussle with the lead changing hands all the way. George made 24 and sat on it for four ends trying to score the necessary single while Reg battled on to make 25 with George still 24. Arnie Petersen was the surprise packet beating Graham MCCosker 27-18. From six all he quickly took the score to 15-8 then 21-11 and so came home a comfortable winner. Scott McClymont was another to score and his win was at the expense of Rickie Ziebicki 25-15. One game was played in the Veterans and it took Bill Roberts into the final of that competition when he plays Ken Moore. Bill played Don McPherson and was never headed, to win 25-13. The club hosted the visiting Real Estate Bowlers from New South Wales and Queensland on Thursday. They played the fourth test between both States on the Yeppoon green and Queensland scored to win. The venue alternates each year between the States and NSW was the previous holders of the Turner Cup and the Yates Memorial Trophy. The Turner cup is decided on the aggregate over the five tests and the Yates Trophy, three points for winning side aggregate each day plus two points for each rink win. In the former, Queensland won by 115 points and in the latter, by 22 points. Yeppoon club's publicity officer said he believes Queensland set up a big enough margin to win overall.


FORTY Yeppoon Indoor Bowling Club members were guests of the Kent Street Social Club at the association's Rockhampton playing venue last Wednesday evening. It was Yeppoon's first visit to the social club and a pleasant evening was enjoyed by all who attended. YIBC ran out winners on the night scoring 252 to Kent Street 216. YIBC members also scored in the raffle and lucky draw department. Bob Kearney won the raffle and lucky draws went to Mavis Brown, Vi Robson, Ken Jones and John Mijatovoic. Kent Street Social Club president and Rockhampton and District Indoor Bowls Association patron Jack Tennant was recently made a RDIBA life member. YIBC president Bernie Robson congratulated Jack on this recent honour. He also extended congratulations to the officials elected at the recent RDIBA annual meeting. Jack Tennant expressed pleasure at the visit of YIBC to his club. He said it was good to see 80 players on the mats and announced that Kent Street would pay a return visit in July. RDIBA paid tribute to the late Jim Hare last Saturday night when 20 teams turned out for the Jim Hare Memorial fixtures ... a total of 120 players. It was the largest turnout of indoor bowlers at headquarters for some time and players hope a revival of indoor bowls is on the way. YIBC was represented by Ken and Lois Crockett, Arthur and Bonnie Atcheson, Jack Rumpf and Marj Birkett. They had a good night, winning two games and drawing one ... scoring 38 points to their opponents' 24. Scores: YIBC v Leichhardt 9-9, St Vincent's 11-9 v Frenchville 18-6. Winners, with three games and 21 ends, were Central Star.

Canoe paddlers pick up bronze FIFTY paddlers and supporters from the Capricorn Coast Outrigger Canoe Club travelled to Ko-Huna Village Resort in Mackay for round six of the Australian Outrigger Grand Prix Circuit. The Coast came home with a bronze in the 11km women's marathon ... Susie Stevenson, Lyn Hines, Jo Taylor, Leah Broderick, Toni Hancock and Susie Cervai. The conditions did not suit the Capricorn and Ko-Huna Outrigger clubs but the flat seas did suit the Whitsunday Clubs. The powerful Airlie Beach Club dominated the 11km Women's Marathon and the 22km Men's Marathon. Hayman Island won both 1,000 sprints in the two divisions. The Capricorn Coast Men's team competed

in their first marathon in five months and with only six paddlers in the nine-man marathon came in 15 minutes behind the Airlie Beach team in 8th place. The next round is at Airlie Beach on May 20 and 21. Anyone interested in travelling to Airlie by bus or would like to join the outrigger club, ring 39 1009.

Netball lives to play new season CAPRICORN Coast Netball has lived to play another season following a successful sign-on on Wednesday night at Cooee Bay Hall. The number of teams will be down considerably compared with the previous season but netball organisers have been given enough heart to organise the competition. Final numbers won't be known until early next week but at this stage there will definitely be a solid competition between senior teams and it's likely there will be a junior competition. Senior players will be formed into teams by this weekend and the draw will be completed early next week. Organisers expect to have a social game underway on Wednesday starting at 7pm.

This will be the first time the teams will be playing against each other and it will give new players a chance to see how the game is played and how to fit into the team sport. Anyone interested in joining netball can turn, up on Wednesday night and expect to get a game. Be prepared by wearing a sports outfit and t-shirt. The 16-week competition will start the following Wednesday and all games will be played at the Cooee Bay Courts from 7pm. Juniors will be attending a coaching clinic which starts on Wednesday at 6pm. Any juniors who have not signed on but would like to play can turn up in sports outfits ready for a game. The draw for the first round in the competition will be available in next week's Capricorn Coast Mirror.

Rungs closer on squash ladder THE Capricorn Coast A grade squash points table closed up a little this week. Bottom of the ladder Secret Weapons celebrated the end of the second round with a 3-1 win against Navigators. Points leaders Odds and Ends could manage only one point against Saints and Sinners who had been tied for third with Professionals. Professionals loss 4-0 to Bits and Pieces dropped them to fourth. All matches at the number two level provided interest this week. Joe Foat won a close match in four against an ever-determined retriever Larry Owens. Bernard Lacey, after winning the first game against Danny Tanks 10-8, went on to win in three as Danny lost sight of his game plan. Chris Briggs avenged his previous round defeat by Andrew Dowie with a 3-0 result. At number three Glen Evans beat Leon Malone 10-9 in the third while Wayne Teys

outlasted Denis Etheridge to win 9-7 in the fifth for the only point for Odds and Ends. Greg Pitt maintained his concentration for a win in four against Val Odell.

Bits and Pieces defeated Professionals 4-0: David Schulz def Cane Murphy 3-2; Greg Pitt def Val Odell 3-1; Chris Briggs def Andrew Dowie 3-0; John Briggs def Glen Ward 3-0.

Greg started well, getting the drop on Gary early in the piece, taking the first game 9-2 before Gary switched that score in the second to his way 9-2. He also took the third 9-6 before a long game in the fourth that Greg won 10-8. This gave Greg the edge he needed and he wrapped up the fifth game 9-5. Greg scored a tally of 36 points to Gary's 33.

Two more sponsors for Swans YEPPOON Swans has two new 1989 sponsors ... McGregor Pools and L'Amor Holiday Apartments. They join the club's other major sponsor, the Pacific Hotel. The committee also has pledges for the clubhouse and special awards in the future. Sponsors' donations provide jumpers, sox and other facilities needed to ensure a successful football season. Other Coast businesses donate trophies, player awards and incidentals during the year. "If these people didn't come forward, it would be almost impossible to run and organise Yeppoon Swans," publicity officer Yvonne Mott on said.

"It looks like a very successful year. Players, committee and supporters are working well ... we haven't had to chase registrations. It's going to be a great year. "We may even be able to play on our own ground next season, and that will include a clubhouse." The club has been without a president since the annual meeting in November because of work commitments by hard-working officials. Peter Motton has taken on the president's mantle officially. Taking his place as vice president is Keith Boyd and Anita Boyd has accepted a position on the committee.

Final game for Emus call on strength and spirit Yeppoon golf LA grade teams to defeat determined All Blacks THERE are only two more basketball fixture games this summer for B grade women, intermediates and juniors, and last Monday was the last game for A grade. One of Monday's games was a match between fixture leaders Scoobs and Saints. As could be expected the game was a close contact throughout, although Saints never seeme.d to get into gear, particularly in the first half. Saints have been strengthened in the height department by the inclusion of Robert Dillawaard but generally passed the rebounds to Scoobs Bryan Allan (22) and John Christensen (12)- with much possession conceded from uncharacteristic missed shots by Saints. `Carrot' Campbell (6) and 'Moose' Laycock (8) never really seemed to start firing, perhaps tired from their Rockets game? Nic Basham (10) top scored for Saints while Brian Douglas (4) was a major contributor to Scoobs game. Scoobs went to the break with a three point lead they held to the, end. In the following Women's game it was a surprise upset when Billabongs went down to PGH. Without Sue Stevenson Billabongs lacked the real hunger to win that their opponents displayed. Billabongs 15-10 lead at half time was overtaken with five minutes left on the clock. They continued an ineffective zone defence and lade almost every shot from at least four \--.Inetres with no chance of making any offensive rebounds. PGH's Nicky Walls (6) and Sandy Ogg (6) made some good moves to the basket while Debbie Condon (6) stretched the defense shooting further out. Billabongs Sharon Spelling (11) made nine in the first half before she lost direction and the only other noticeable player on the side was Alison Thomas (6). It is obvious Billabongs need a strong coach to win the game. There are no games on Sunday and Monday, Labour Day weekend. Clinics will be Beginners and Intermediates, 6pm; under 14 and 16 representatives, 7pm and advanced, 8pm. The basketball association is having an under 18 disco at Yeppoon State High School Stadium on Saturday, May 6 from 7.30pm to 10pm. Admission is S2 and music by Billy the Mountain. Thursday, May 5: 7pm, PGH v Gadabouts, D and A Moore; 8pm, Nomads v Breakaway, K Dooley and J Christensen. Saints tops the A men's fixture points on 23 closely followed by Scoobs, 22; Hootans 20; Coasters 18; Don' Party 17 and Bvfield 8. Generals leads B Men followed by Exploding White Mice 16; Tanby Roses 14; Reef Seekers 11 and Dunkin' Co 7. Nomads and PGH share top billing with 11 points in the B Women fixtures. Breakaway is 7 and Gadabouts 6. Bombers is on top in the Intermediate fixtures with 22, followed by Wolfpac 20, Richmond 18, Hornets 16, Parkies 12 and Jets 7. Devils, with 18 points, leads the Junior fixtures with C C Lakers 15, Mighty Midgets 14, â&#x20AC;&#x201D; hundercats 9 and Phantoms 8.

`-YIBC can't lay blame on wet

LAST minute cancellations for last Sunday's visit to Biloela by Yeppoon Indoor Bowling Club players to contest 'Ye Olde Davis Cup' forced YIBC games director Vi Robson to fall back on her never-failing fund of Rockhampton players to fill the 10 vacant places. It was a wet day, on the way out, at Biloela and on the home trip, but as the trophy was being played under cover, YIBC cannot blame its dismal showing on the wet track. Callide won 26 and a half games and 498 points to YIBC 13 and a half games 387 points. YIBC president Bernie Robson, on handing over the cup to Callide, said YIBC would endeavour to win it back when Callide visits . YIBC later in the year. Best scoring trophy for YIBC went to Mavis Brown, Andy Hobkirk, Lil Young, Rowena Stevens, Ethel Duke and Thelma Shuttlewood with a score of three games 58 points. Lowest scoring trophy for YIBC with half a game and 45 points was won by Florence Collins, Tom Gosbee, Ann Lehmann, Kath Mcllwraith, Jack Rumpf and Kath Mcllwraith. This weekend is a busy one for YIBC members with the visit of a bus load of players from the Mackay Indoor Bowls Association. The Mackayites arrive Saturday afternoon , and will play three sessions, Saturday, Sunday 1/46...Afternoon and night. In between there is a cent sale and barbecue tea. The visitors leave for home on Monday morning.

â&#x20AC;˘ By Jeff Quigley EMU Park rugby league reserves had called on their strength and spirit to defeat a determined All Blacks side at Browne Park on Wednesday, April 19. The Park had to overcome several hurdles to record their 19-10 victory: an, endless list of injured players; a 12-4 penalty count and an opposition that would never say die. Emu Park suffered a setback early in the game when winger Geoff Nicholls suffered a nasty head gash and was replaced by Gavin Warwick. The game was 10 minutes old when Briggs brought the supporters to their feet. He capitalised on some great forward leadup work and out-sprint the cover defence to score halfway between the corner post and the uprights. With a Doak conversion Park raced to a 6-0 lead. Ginger Slotosch, who was having another blinder, laid the foundation for Park's second try, when with scant regard for his own safety, threw himself into three defenders close to the line. Big Shane O'Mara, who had positioned himself perfectly, was able to run onto Slotosch's pass at full steam and barge over wide out. Kirk Doak piloted over a difficult conversion to give the Park a handy 12-0 lead. Emus failed to tighten up the defence in the centre of the paddock and the elusive All Black runners started to have a field day. With five minutes to half time All Blacks made a break from inside their own half. With great supporting play they were able to go all the way and score a great try near the upright. Luckily for Park the conversion attempt failed. With only seconds remaining to the break Kirk Doak recorded his third field goal for the season to give the Coast side a 13-4 lead. After the resumption Emu Park's big winger, Scott Smith, narrowly failed to score in the corner when the linesman ruled he had gone into touch before he grounded the ball. That near miss again lifted All Blacks and they began to mount considerable pressure on the Park forwards. Hacksaw Jim Duffy was forced from the field and replaced by Brendan Muller. All Blacks was right back into the thick of things after scoring the now familiar try from dummy half. With the successful conversion they were only three points behind Emus. The game seesawed from one end of the field to the other with both sides blowing chances. Lawrence Buckley was given a chance to shine when Gavin Warwick succumbed to injury and was replaced. Ginger Slotosch's game came to a premature end at the 63rd minute when he was banished to the 'sin bin' for 10 minutes. After solid lead up work Park found itself centre field 20 metres out from the post. Wiley old fox Roscoe Fordham went into the dummy spot to do some scheming. He took the ball from the nick and threw a perfect dummy that even fooled himself. With the opposition forwards running at everyone except him, he was able to pirouette on his good leg, gap the defence and with a full spinnaker was able to set sail to the line and score the winning try under the black dot. With Kirk Doak's simple conversion the final score was 19-10. Park's best: Roscoe Fordham; Ginger Slotosch, Shane O'Mara and Mark Briggs. Special mention to the efforts of young Corey Anderson who had his baptism of fire in his first game of rugby league. Although he was a little out of position here and there he never stopped trying and gave his all and has the scars to prove it. Mention also to Brendan Muller's top effort produced when he came on as replacement. The mighty Emu Park Emus suffered its first defeat of the season against Fitzroy at Rockhampton's Browne Park on Saturday night. Final score was a heart stopping 20-18. Emu Park started the game like a house on fire and had the green machine on the ropes from the opening minutes. From the first attacking raid Park found itself unlucky when Ginger Slotosch was held up over the line. Within minutes centre Scott Warcon was penalised by referee Hill for a double movement. If things had gone right for us we could have been 10 points up in the first five minutes but fate decreed it was the Greens who scored first. From a set move 30 metres from the Park line Fitzroy penetrated to the tryline and register a four-pointer. There was a touch of shepherd in the movement but the side got awaywith it. The conversion attempt was unsuccessful. With a six nil lead Fitzroy lifted their game while Park's fell away. The Greens raced to a 10-0 lead when Park's Jason Witt failed to take a high bomb. With the Fitzroy's offering little in the way of a shield for Witt the big Fitzroy forward was able to pounce on the loose pill and quicker than you can say "Kiwi Anderson is a patient man" touched down under the post. Emus failed to regain composure after the setback and began to run one out. This tactic made it easy for the Fitzroy pack. New kid on the block Gavin Kydd who was filling the five eight spot for injured Kirk Doak, Jimmy Pendergrast and Roscoe Fordham

brought the loyal band of supporters to their feet when he cut the green backline to pieces. With Witt hanging from his right hip like the proverbial drover's dog, he set sail to the line. He was able to draw the last two defenders and give Witt a clear passage to the tryline. Scott Warcon's conversion attempt was too wide, too low and just not long enough. Fitzroy took umbrage at Park's try and was stung back into a spirited attack. From 40 metres out they pounded Park's blind side. The defence ran out of numbers and the Greens were able to cross for the third try. Their kicker narrowly missed with the conversion. As the half-time hooter echoed around Browne Park the Emus found themselves staring at a 14 to 4 deficit. There was some deep soul searching in the Park huddle during the break. Hacksaw Jim Duffy was replaced by the experienced Wayne Goodfellow which caused a reshuffle of Tydd going into the pack and Goodie taking up the five eight role. From the resumption it was like a different team had taken the field. The Park forwards ripped into their Green opponents. It was anticipated on the bench that the Fitzroy pack would wilter towards the end of the game but they appeared to want very little to do with the Emus in the first minutes of the second half. Five minutes after the restart Ginger Slotosch blitzed the defence to score wide out. Tydd was unsuccessful with his conversion attempt but Park was right back into the game. Ten minutes later big Onnie Reid made an awesome bust up the middle which left three defenders strewn on the Browne Park turf. Onnie was pulled down only metres from the post but the damage had already been done. From the quick play the ball Scott Warcon was able to off load an overhead pass to that man Briggs who crossed over in a handy position. With Tydd's conversion the score was now sitting at 14 points apiece. Fitzroy's players, to their credit, picked themselves up off the ground and launched a great counter attack. Too many Park players fell for the big lock's magnificent dummy and he sprinted in the direction of the Emus' trylines. He was bought down metres from his objective. The Greens were quicker to get set than the Park. They were able to capitalise on the good lead up work and were rewarded with a converted try under the post. With only two minutes left in the game Gavin Tydd was able to force his way over from dummy half and score right next to the upright. As the ball left Tydd's boot everyone at the ground anticipated a draw to be on the cards. But much to the dismay of the Emu Park team, supporters and Gavin, the ball struck high up the left hand upright and rebounded back into the field of play. That was the ball game and close enough is usually not good enough. Congratulations to the Green machine for their victory. The next game is against Norths on Sunday at Norths' homeground. The supporters bus leaves the Pine Beach Hotel at noon. Don't forget to get your little Emus enrolled in the Capricorn Coast Mini League.

Swans stay on top of CAFL ladder with win over Wandal YEPPOON Swans defeated Wandal on the weekend and are still on top of the CAFL ladder. "If they had played four quarters of 'football' instead of two it would have been a biggerwin," publicity officer Yvonne Motton said. "After half time they must have thought they had it won, or perhaps Wandal 'got it together' and the Swans just coasted along. "They were lucky to hold Wandal out to win 12-13-85 to 11-12-78. "It was hard to pick the best players as most of the team put in one or two good quarters, but hardly a one won all day." Jason Jamieson, Nick Basham, Steve Lauritz and Steve Burns kept the ball moving and showed some very good displays of rucking and handball, but long direct kicks are needed to give the young forwards a better chance against the strong backline. "Bryan Munn played well and is a delight to watch and always shows his unselfishness by including the younger players thus giving them an opportunity to improve their game." Mark Van Gestel showed some great running and kicked two great goals. The backline in Mike Wozniak, Doug Newton, Tim Mynott and Les Lacey saved time and again. Cack has a great pair of hands and Doug Newton showed his best display ever. "No-one could feel really unhappy with the day's play, but there certainly is room for improvement and I'm sure coach Steve Burns will be looking for four quarters against Wandal next round." Goalkickers: Brett Lord 3; Mark Van Gestel, Steve Lauritz and Jason Jamieson two each; Bryan Cruickshank, Rod Chapman and Bryan Munn one each. Awards: Doug Newton, man of the match; Les Lacey Pacific Hotel dinner for two; Jason Jamieson, Kingy's Caltex award; Tim Mynott and Mark Van Gestel shared Bay Vacationer award and received S10 each; Nick Basham Kristin's Hair award; Steve Lauritz special mention. The reserves played a lack-lustre game against better competition. They could not seem to play together as one and lost 11-4-70 Wandal to 7-3-45 Yeppoon. Paul Harris played a good game and was backed up by some triers in Scott Witts, Greg Bain, JR and Phil Lacy. Phil Munro, in his first game for the season,

kicked three goals to give the reserves some creditability. More games together should improve their game. Goalkickers: Phil Munro 3; Danny Harris, Greg Bain, Sean Chamberlain one each (who was the other?). Best players: Greg Bain, the mug; Paul Harris, Pacific dinner for two; Scott Witts, J Heat hcote and Phil Lacey. Next Saturdays game is against BITS at Yeppoon Showground. Reserves play at 12.30pm and A grade at 2.30pm. Organisers would appreciate more support from the locals.

YLBC wins the Purple Pennant THE Purple Pennant came to Yeppoon Ladies Bowls Club last week for the first time. The Purple Pennant Flag is coveted and elusive and the Coast ladies who competed were ecstatic. Immediately after the games were completed at the North Rockhampton Bowls Club 10 elated players were presented with their Purple Pennant Badges by Yeppoon's proud president Marj Bierwirth. Prior to that Mad had been presented with the badges and Pennant Flag by CQDLBA president Linda Waite. The two successful teams were: Myrl Bradley, Vera Wilson, Mad Stewart and Eleanor Batts (skip); Del Roos, Daphne Engel, Ruth Wass and Ivy McNamara (skip). The two reserves Beth Beckett and Joyce Barber also received a Pennant Badge. "A special thanks to Joyce for being in attendance every day, and to Beth for being in the right place, just when needed," Yeppoon Ladies Bowls Club publicity officer Ivy McNamara said. "Congratulations to ALBC for winning the Blue Pennant, NRLBC the winners of the Red Pennant and to our own Red Teams. We all know they did well." Ladies playing in the May Carnival next week, the bus leaves the club house at 8.10am on Tuesday and Wednesday. Please arrange own transport for Thursday. There is a committee meeting on Friday, May 5 at 130pm. Tuesday, May 9 competitions in the morning will be published next week for Foundation Cup Day in the afternoon and Club Fours competition in conjunction with this event.

ELSEWHERE in this issue there's a story about the great opportunities to be enjoyed in the Army. The bloke doing the recruiting is Warrant Officer Bob Stockwell and he reckons the Army is better than civilian life ... he should know, he spent three years working in a bank rising to head teller. Because of security, the safe could only be opened with three combinations. The manager had one, the accountant another ... and Bob, the head teller, the third. One morning he arrived for work and the time came to open the safe. The manager spun in his numbers, the accountant added his digits ... and Bob Stockwell suffered a mental block. He couldn't remember his sequence of numbers. The bank was open ... but it had no money. The quick-thinking manager applied for a loan to a neighbouring bank, got a much faster approval than we in private enterprise enjoy ... and an expert from Chubb Safes had to be flown in to drill the bank's lock. After a series of holes were drilled and the safe "cracked" the money flowed once again. About this time, the manager suggested to Bob he might like to use his skills in some other field of endeavour. That was 15 years ago and Bob's three-year career in high finance was at an end. He joined the Army and never looked back. He now earns about $36,000 a year, is married with three children, has visited (with the Army) Hawaii, Malaya, New Zealand, New Guinea and all of Australia's Eastern States. He's also a fully qualified parachutist, and Army Scuba diver. Before applying to join Recruiting, he was in One Commando Company in Sydney and wore the Green Beret. He's also taken up the Defence Service Home Loan of $25,000 at an average interest rate of 7 per cent! Aged 35 he can retire in just five years on a pension of 30 per cent of what he now earns ... that's about $200 a week in today's money for the rest of his life. But he'll be staying in the Army. "There's still a lot more I want to see and do," he said. Was it fate that made him forget that safe combination? Whatever it was, he's happy .. and who can ask for more? •

REMEMBER a couple of weeks ago the Mirror ran a l-o-n-g story on the Findlay family and the sale of the A.K. Findlay store? Of course you do, it was the story in the middle of the paper with those old pics of the shopping centre. Anyway, somewhere in the middle of the story Dorrie Brown said she made the best fish rissoles in town because of working in one of the family enterprises. Well, Wednesday lunchtime, Dorrie phoned up to say she had cooked a batch of fish rissoles and some chips so the Mirror crew could see she wasn't boasting. Well, an hour later, after Suzy, Pat Andersen, Rhodes and "Old Baldy" had had their fill, Rhodes returned the dish and Dorrie greeted him with another batch plus a plate of cakes. The afternoon's work went slowly with the whole crew drowsy! Dorrie, "OB" reckons that's the best feed he's had since he covered the CWA's Yeppoon branch and Emu Park branch annual general meetings!!! ••• BY the way, "OB" shot a picture in the rain on the weekend and neglected to turn off the flash. The result, for the uninitiated, was a print with pretty little white dots all over it as the flash lit up the raindrops. Suzy, knowing what had happened, saw the proof sheet Rhodes had produced and decided to put him on. She asked could he remove the dots on the pic. Rhodes, ever-confident•of his abilities far beyond those of mortal men, jerked his head and assured his mother the dots were only dust on the negative and he'd fix it up. Two hours later, when the master's apprentice had to admit defeat, Suzy told him what he was trying to remove. Just as he caught on that he'd been had, "OB" asked Rhodes to whip down to Comey's and pick up a grip of Tarzan's tube. Rhodes, beligerently, replied: "What for?" He couldn't understandwhy his Mummy and Daddy kept laughing!!! , ,/

SEAGULLS SEEK SUPPORT THE Yeppoon Seagulls are looking for local support when all three grades play home games at the showground on Sunday from noon. Under 19s, Reserves and A grades meet the Emerald Tigers in the fifth round of the competition. After four games, the Seagulls A grade have won two and lost two and expect to pick up another win on Sunday. The Reserves have three wins and a draw to their credit and the under 19s are yet to win their first game. The under 19s are the hope for the future and

some of the players have only two or three games under their belt. A strong crowd of supporters could help this enthusiastic band to greater heights. They are doing the right thing by turning up for training and their enthusiasm must tip the scales in their favour before too long. Yeppoon Police officer-in-charge Sgt Ken Tanzer is in charge of their training ... and their mentor. This is the first home game to be played at home after the previous home game was washed out and transferred to Rockhampton. A bar will operate and hot food will be available.
