Coast TAFE has premises and 19 courses

Wright fears pineapple import crisis

had been given the opportunity to have our own TAFE Centre, we should make the most of it by finding out exactly what sort of classes Coast residents wanted." A survey was held and from the flood of information that followed, the community council chose 19 courses that had the highest priority to be held in the first semester. "The courses themselves are incredibly hard to choose," Mr McGregor said. "People have such diverse needs it would be impossible to satisfy everyone but the 19 we're offering appear to be the ones that are most in demand." Enrolments will be held next month at a date to be fixed. If any course is not filled it will be dropped. Mr McGregor said a course needed a minimum of 10 students to be held. While finishing touches are being put to the courses, the State Works Department will be preparing the Anglican Conference Centre. Rooms will be painted, lighting installed

and both minor and major repairs carried out. "The centre is ideal for TAFE purposes," Mr McGregor said. "It will serve the Coast well until the TAFE Centre is built on the land that has been bought in McBean Street." The 19 courses are: • Certificate of Introductory Art and Design • Course of Introductory Photography • Associate Diploma of Business (accounting) • Associate Diploma of Business (computing) • Certificate of Commercial and Office Fundamentals • Certificate of Commercial and Office Studies • Certificate of Real Estate Practices • Certificate of Small Business • Course of Management for Ind,ependent Business-owners • Course of Microcomputer Awareness

MEMBER for Capricornia Keith Wright said pineapples worth $5 million could be left unpicked in the fields this year because of a flood of cheap imports. He said the $5 million represented between 18,000 to 20,000 tonnes of pineapples. "An unbelievable crisis is developing," Mr Wright said. He said the consumer affairs group he chaired was having talks with Franklin, Coles and Woolworths urging them to give preference to Australian pineapple products. "They are buying in massive tonnages from Indonesia, Thailand, Taiwan and the Philippines and in doing so are threatening some 2000 jobs in the processing and farm labouring industry alone, as well as the livelihood of 600 farming families," Mr Wright said. "In turn, they are adding to our foreign debt by importing pineapples when they could be buying Australian-made."



THE Capricorn Coast TAFE Centre is off and running ... the first classes will start in July at the Anglican Conference Centre, Cooee Bay. Coast TAFE Community Council chairman Bruce McGregor said this week 19 courses were scheduled to start on July 10 and the lease was being drawn up for the Anglican Conference Centre. It's a great achievement for a centre that didn't exist until State Cabinet met in Yeppoon on Monday, March 6. On that afternoon, Employment, Training and Industrial Affairs Minister Vince Lester announced perhaps the best news the Capricorn Coast had heard in years ... a TAFE centre would be built on an llha site in McBean Street. While that news was sinking in, he also announced $200,000 had been allocated for classes for 1988/89 in temporary premises. Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton was involved in setting up the community council and chose Mr McGregor to head up the sixmember group. "Our first meeting was held on March 30 and we set ourselves a target to be operational by July," Mr McGregor said. "Thursday night meetings decided since we

Wright fears pineapple crisis • CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 Mr Wright has been involved with talks this week with Primary Industry John Kerin. Mr Kerin had said he was concerned about the imports but saw no simple solution. A lift in tariffs was not a big enough deterrent and a quota system could not be introduced. The countries that are flooding Australia are developing countries which were supposed to be given preference. Mr Wright, who phoned from Canberra, said he was not prepared to see this important Australian industry "go down the gurgler" irrespective of the international trade consequences. "There's a principle at stake here in the value the growers put back into Australia's economy," he said. "Every tonne is worth $240 to them and it is a labour-intensive industry as well as being as an import-replacement industry. "We are only just now starting to export pineapples. Some 5000 tonnes were exported last year to Canada and Japan. We have just opened up the top-end market." Earliei this week, Mr Wright told the Prime Minister's Rural Task Force in Canberra of the threat to the pineapple industry. He said the growth in imports, from 9000 tonnes in 1983 to more than 20,000 this year, threatened the livelihood of more than 600 pineapple farmer spread from South-East to Yeppoon. The blatant undercutting of prices by as much

as $100 a tonne could wipe out the pineapple growers unless action was taken to restrict imports. He had asked Mr Kerin to rec anv as the concept of quotas irrespective of government policy to promote an open market philosophy. Mr Wright said Mr Kerin had told committee he was conscious of the dilemma but believed quotas would be a hard line to sell in view of the pressure being placed on the Americans and the European Economic Community to remove quotas on beef, sugar and grains. , Mr Wright said it was a major dilemma but if no action was taken Australia stood to lose a primary industry worth, in value-added terms, up to $300 million to the nation's economy. The Primary Industry Committee members and the Rural Task Force accepted Mr Wright's proposition for an immediate investigation into the costs being paid by pineapple farmers for chemical and fertilisers. Mr Wright said there was a difference in some cases of hundreds of dollars for the same product sold under different brand names. He said Coast growers had told him they were spending hundreds of thousands of dollars across the industry for chemicals and fertilisers. "A 10 per cent reduction in price could give growers a competitive edge against imported pineapples," Mr Wright said. There was a need for a full and detailed inquiry into the wholesale mark-ups of chemical and fertiliser and Mr Kerin had agreed to assist in the prepartion of information that would assist the committee in it deliberations. He said there was considerable evidence that Coast growers had been "ripped off" to the tune of tens of thousands of dollars by fertiliser and chemical manufacturing companies. Mr Wright said the need for quotas and a reduction in the cost of farm costs, particularly as they related to chemicals and fertilisers, could save the industry. He said the issue would go before the committee on Tuesday. A meeting was planned with Trade Minister Senator John Button on the quota issue and, if necessary, the matter would be taken to Prime Minister Bob Hawke in a special report from the Rural Task Force.

MEMBER for Capricornia Keith Wright will be meeting Capricorn Coast pineapple growers between May 14 and 17 to gather more information. Mr Wright said growers were gathering information from each other which would be included in a submission to Canberra. He would also be meeting Golden Circle Cannery executives to receive documents. All information collected would be taken to Canberra to press the pineapple industry's case.

THE site of the Keppel Sands boat ramp will not be altered following inspection and reassessment by Harbours and Marine Department officers. Member for Broadsound asked Livingstone Shire Council to stop work on the project following local complaints and a personal inspection by him. Mr Hinton had then requested the site be moved after considering opinions expressed at a public- meeting he convened at Keppel Sands to hear local views. "It was a clear majority view at the meeting the site should be moved slightly upstream on Cawarral Creek and placed with a northerly aspect as against the easterly aspect of the present site to gain better protection," Mr Hinton said. "I told the public meeting three things: we would accommodate public knowledge and opinion as far as possible; the department's engineers are the only qualified people and therefore their views would be paramount as the ramp is totally funded by taxpayers money: the buck stops with me as the Government's representative and I accept this responsibility. "After a re-appraisal of the sites, the engineers strongly favour the present site as the uwave action is considered to be better head-on up than across the ramp as would be the case with the proposed alternative site. "The Keppel Sands area is extremely difficult terrain for a boat ramp and a beach access ramp is the best that can be provided." he said. "I have discussed the issue at length with Harbours and Marine Minister Don Neal and it is a case of the present site or nothing and I have opted to continue construction at the present site. "I realise not all boat owners will agree, but the matter is definitely final."

LIBERALS TO OPEN COAST BRANCH? "We want to gauge what interest there is in

THE Central Zone of the Liberal Party is inviting Capricorn Coast residents to decide whether they want a Coast-based branch.

"The belief that the Federal Government has let down the battlers in Australia has led to an increase in membership for the Liberal Party throughout Australia," Central Zone Liberal Party chairman Bev Reynolds said this week.

"There are Liberal members and supporters living on the Coast, some of whom have moved from other areas, and we urge them to contact me at 28 3454 after hours or Allan Reeves, 33 6321 after hours." A public meeting will be held on the Capricorn Coast in June.

FOR PAY PEARCE AGAINST `BINGO ment to ambulance services. I shudder when I AMBULANCE officers should not have to sell raffle tickets and run bingo to pay their wages. ALP candidate for Broadsound Jim Pearce said this week he was fed up with seeing ambulance officers forced to sell raffle tickets and run Bingo to raise their own wages because, he said, ambulance committees, particularly in country areas, are so starved of funds they are unable to meet basic training and staffing costs. "Improper training for Queensland's 1,200 ambulance officers means the overall standard of the State's ambulance service has suffered," he said.

"A Labor State Government elected later this year will move immediately to ease training and staffing costs borne by Queensland's 95 ambulance committees. "For too long the ambulance service has been the poor relative of the Queensland Emergency Service ... under-funded, under-staffed and under-equipped. "Ambulance officers are professionals dedicated to their job. It is not right they should have to run raffles."

The ride was a hit with Jill Valentine who had also been puzzled about what to do on a wet day ... she took Trista, Keira, Meisha, Travis, Ebonie, Sierra, Beau, Quanita, Jenny "and Grandma" for a spin in the family van and saw a camel. John Richardson, who's well known for his exploits at wheelbarrow racing and hobby-horse derbies, knows he's on a winner with "Capricorn" ... literally.

Pensioners oppose sandmining YEPPOON Pensioners League is against sandmining at Shoalwater Bay. The matter was raised at the league's April meeting in Yeppoon Town Hall last Thursday and the 50 members present were unanimous in their opposition to the project. League president Bill Shuttlewood said he had read all the arguments for and against the project and he did not think it was in the best interests of the people of Yeppoon that sandmining be allowed in the Shoalwater Bay area. Vice president Jack Rumpf said the Commonwealth Government should make Shoalwater Bay a permanent Army base. Mrs Sue Smith moved and Mr Jack Rumpf seconded the motion: 'This meeting of the Yeppoon Pensioners' League is of the opinion

that sandmining at Shoalwater Bay is not in the best interests of the people of Yeppoon and we ask the Member for Capricornia Keith Wright to take the suggestion to the Federal Government that instead of sandmining on Shoalwater Bay the area be made a permanent Army Base'. Mrs Kath Mcllwraith moved and Mr Bill Coxan seconded that a letter be written to the Livingstone Shire Council asking when the construction of the pedestrian crossing linking James and Normanby Streets will be started and completed. A complaint by a member that glasses supplied under the free optical service for pensioners were unsuitable will be taken to the CQ Zone meeting being held in Yeppoon next week.

EMU PARK Lioness Club will have to pay S40 for hire of the Emu Park Cultural Hall. The club wrote to this month's council meeting asking for the fee to be waived because the club was a non-profit organisation and the event to be held was raising funds for the local community. In a report to council, shire accountant Denis Murphy said because several requests of this nature were received throughout the year, it would seem appropriate for council to consider such concessions in the next budget. "A discounted hire rate to these organisations would allow council the option of receiving some funding from non-profit organisations so as to cover operating costs such as electricity and caretaker's fee," he said. The recommendation, moved and seconded by Crs Duncan McDonald and Roy Wall, was that council advise the Lioness. Club that the fee for the May 26 hiring would be waived. Cr Glenda Mather asked what council's policy had been in the past. She considered it had been "a bit inconsistent". Shire chairman Cr John Bowen said it was difficult to give an open ticket. Most cases had to be dealt with on their merit. Cr Key Hinz council was able to give a discount at Emu Park but groups at the Caves had to pay full fees because council did not own the hall. Cr Brian Dorey said council couldn't have a policy on this subject. If the hall was to be used for a worthy cause it should be allowed free of charge. Cr Ellen Cogill said refunding fees was just putting the costs back on other ratepayers; council had a hall to maintain. When put to a vote, council decided not to refund the fee. Crs Maurie Webb, McDonald, Dorey and Wall voted against the decision.

RSL gets hall hire refund YEPPOON RSL Sub-Branch was refunded fees associated with hiring Yeppoon Town Hall for its district conference held on February 17 and 18. In a report to council, shire accountant Denis Murphy said fees were S84 security deposit plus S55 hire. Referring to the group's letter, Mr Murphy said the Coast economy would have benefited by such a large contingent of people. The sub-branch said 150 delegates and wives attended the conference. They stayed in Coast hotels and motels and were taken on tours of various attractions. Mr Murphy said it would appear prudent for council to give encouragement to the staging of such events in future by acceding the request for a refund. The recommendation was successfully moved and seconded by Crs Roy Wall and John Dowie.

Council to buy industrial land LIVINGSTONE Shire Council will proceed with acquisition of industrial land on Rockhampton Road now held by the Department of Industry Development. This was the recommendation of the Tourism and Development 'Steering Committee presented to council's April meeting. The committee said while there was no immediate shortage, it was recognised that there was a lack of land in the Yeppoon area that could be developed for industrial purposes in • the future. UP to be 5300 will be spent buying books, pamphlets and information on business development from the Small Business Development Corporation. The action was recommended to Livingstone Shire Council's April meeting by the Tourism and Development Steering Committee. The idea is to have as much information as possible available to people interested in starting a small business. Everything will be displayed in Yeppoon Library.

EP land plan LIVINGSTONE Shire Council will provide funds in the 1989/90 budget to buy the Defence Reserve now used by the Emu Park/Yeppoon Rifle Club. The land, Defence Reserve R. 322, has been valued at S120,000. In a report to council, the Tourism and Development Steering Committee thought it appropriate to continue attempts to obtain the land. It is believed council wants the reserve for use as future industrial land. The committee recommended council pro-. vide funds to buy the reserve and consider the sale of other council land to help fund the purchase. It also recommended the Department of Administrative Services be asked to offer council first option on the land. There was a further recommendation to invite the rifle club to meet the committee to discuss the club's future.

BROADSOUND Labor candidate Jim Pearce has called on Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton to come clean with what is in tended for the area known as Vallis Park, north of Yeppoon. "In Parliament in February, 1987, Mr Hinton said he was committed to having such areas as Vallis Park on top of the Bluff at Yeppoon preserved as National or Environmental Parks," Mr Pearce said. "He has been unable to deliver. Capricorn Coast people have the right to knowwhy Vallis Park was not declared an Environmental Park. "Maybe the government has something else in mind for the area. If they do, Mr Hinton must act responsibly and let us know about it." Vallis Park is on the hills above and north of Yeppoon and covers about 13 hectares of Crown Land. The area was declared a Reserve for Park and Scenic purposes under the Trusteeship of Livingstone Shire Council in 1967. "The declaration of the area as an environmental park is essential for the people of Yeppoon and if promoted correctly would see many tourists seek out this excellent view which would allow them to appreciate the area's beauty."

`I knew about the Brisbane Line...' IN reference to a letter written in the Mirror by Mr Dickson of Yeppoon stating there was no military line named the Brisbane Line in World War II. Please get the facts straight before you write about a subject you do not seem to know about. I knew about the Brisbane Line because my late husband, a farmer at the time, was a private in tlfe VDC volunteer defence corps, with farmers, businessmen, a school teacher, and workers, whatever their work entailed, joined the force in Biloela. Other districts had their VDC men. These men were unpaid soldiers. They trained as regular Army soldiers every Sunday and at times at night through the week studying map reading andwartime strategy. As a part of their training, one weekend these soldiers stormed and captured Mt Morgan mine. When the enemy set foot on our soil these men had to help defend our country and people by attacking the enemy soldiers with guns, grenades and swords by blowing bridges or railway lines if necessary to destroy or deter them while the main military force defended the Brisbane Line. Wewere annoyed to think theArmy was deserting us in this area and North Queensland to hold the Brisbane Line a fact of life in World War II.



The history of the Brisbane Line is in the Canberra War Museum archives. It was conceived by Australian generals after Menzies was out of office. Lieutenant-General Ivan MacKay sent a memorandum to Army Minister Frank Forde and General George Vasey sent a copy to MacArthur's aides. MacArthur's reaction was: "The defeatist conception which that involved was fatal". It is perceived as an insurance policy against possible disaster by General Blarney who took Sergeant Jack Stewart from Victoria Barracks in Sydney to Melbourne to draw a map of Australia five metres long by three metres high on which the generals marked their plans. The map was marked top secret. The date ... February 4, 1942. I hope this letter will inform you and others of events that took place in Australia during the last war. - R Hardwick, Vaughan Sneet, Yeppoon.

Green Frogs Lost Green Frog Lost She has not returned. I am consumed with grief, A sadness fills my heart, quite beyond belief, I had anticipated that she'd come home last night, And now it is broad daylight and not a frog in sight. I searched around my mailbox, around the little creek, Wherever she could likely hide, I desperately seek, But all without result. She surely must be lost, I know that it is all my fault but Oh! the dreadful cost. I am truly grateful to my friends in Jarman Street, Who provided her safe haven on their toilet seat, Weaned of her bad habits in need of much correction, Then released her, homeward bound, in the right direction. . Where can she be? Fears crowd into my mind, Has some ugly cane toad grabbed her from behind? Was she caught in traffic, passing through the town? Or caught in Ross Creek flood tide, silently to drown? Did some stealthy night owl, in cruel silent dive Grab my little Susy and swallow her alive? Has her allotted life-span come to a sudden end? Could she not surmount the perils with which she must contend? My guilt is overwhelming, my conscience will not rest, My depth of shame is paramount, my sorrow unsurpassed, I can make excuses but they are quite re strained, And what avails it now that she was toilet trained. - Mervyn Scope.

together and getting on with the job 'as one body for the good of the community. The near fracas with the selection of the new councillor was averted because of the unbiased reporting by our local Mirror newspaper. I've heard each council meeting costs the ratepayers up to 52000 and this issue and the inability of many councillors to make a decision except on their political party lines meant this issue could have dragged on and on. We on the Coast are fortunate to have journalists of the calibre of John and Suzy Watson who show neither favour nor affection to anyone and are only concerned with printing the facts. Congratulations John and Suzy. Not only have you shown yourselves to be excellent journalists and a credit to your profession, but you have saved local ratepayers a small fortune. Keep it up. - Ross Dickson, Stevenson Street, Batiows Hill.


SCRIPTURE proof Christ rose on the first day of the week - Sunday. Mark 16v9 reads: Now when He rose early on the first day of the week, He appeared first to Mary Magdalene, out of whom He had cast seven demons. It has been suggested by A J Ward, in the last letters page of your paper, that an error has been made, regarding what day Christ rose. I would like to say to Mr Ward, that to insist on such a statement without any scripture proof, is to be in grave error. The above scripture (which was quoted in my last issue) is very clear that 'Christ rose on the first day', and not as A J Ward suggested that `Christ was only seen on the first day'. In addition, the New Testament clearly teaches

that we are not bound to the ceremonial Sabbaths - or annual - as was the nation Israel. Colossians 2 v 14-17, the Word of God says:— Blotting out the handwriting of ordiances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to His cross; And having spoiled principalities and powers, He made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it. Therefore let no one judge you in food or in drink, or regarding a 'feast day' or a 'new moon' or `sabbaths': which are a `shadow' of things to come; but the body is of Christ. We are thus told that the `sabbath days' were nailed to the cross of Christ and taken 'out of the way' at the time of His death and resurrection. This is true of both weekly Sabbath and annual Sabbaths. By the way, Ephesians 2 v 8: By grace we are saved through faith, and that not of ourselves; it is the gift of God. Verse 9: not of 'works' lest anyone should 'boast'. Good works produced are the fruit of our faith in Him. Philippians 1 v 6: Being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you, will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ. So you see salvation is a gift of God. The plain truth is that Christ arose on the first day of the week, not on. Saturday. - Lydia Agius, Lot 52 Racecourse Road, Yeppoon.

Humans hatch out of auric eggs... THE egg, the symbol of life and the judgement. Not only chickens hatch out of eggs, humans do too. They hatch out of auric eggs into a world of light when they are spiritually reborn, and thus the new man, the Christ-child, beholds the Kingdom of Heaven. It is in this new body that man ascends into Heaven. Flesh and blood cannot inherit the Kingdom of God. This is the resurrection body. It looks the same, but is not the same. The Christian faith is founded on the resurrection, on the death of Christ. No! and by far not on the sabbath. For it was the enemy that killed him, not God, although God allowed it, for the salvation of the world. Christ arose from the dead on Sunday, hence Easter is celebrated on Sunday in the resurrection spirit. Christ is more than prophet, for the scripture says, through him all things were created. Also the planets are egg-shaped, and so is the embryo and the womb. Easter eggs are a symbol of new life, and the bunny is a symbol of fertility because it breeds so abundantly. It is by its fruits (spiritual) that Christianity is known. Inner peace and joy in the Lord, fearlessness and trust in God are some of them. Religion that is centered on death, darkness and disaster has no life in it, in fact becomes a dangerous evil to society. Christ conquered satanic forces once through his sacrifice and at the second time with his sword, which is his word. Prophecy is fast fulfilling itself as he and hi angels throw in the sickle for the harvest. Since Christ has been on earth physically since 1939, when nation turned against nation. His already is the victory a second time. He will be a revealed a grown adult, and what goes on in the world today is rarely satan's work, but God's mighty judgement through Christ until every knee shall bow and everyone acknowledge him as Lord. As the scripture says: 'He comes forth from his army. Being captain of salvation, he comes to save, but also to judge. This I write that the truth shall set you free, have no fear, for the Lord knoweth those that are his, but at the same time calleth all men to be saved. - Angela Mahatica, Byyield.

Land tax idea gains followers

ALL TAKEAWAYS Open from 7.30am 7-days-a-week


Normanby St, Yeppoon

THE concept of a land tax applicable to all foreign owned lands by non-resident aliens is gaining momentum as a brake on the purchase of Queensland lands by foreign interests, Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton said this week. Mr Hinton initiated the move in a paper circulated to Queensland parliamentary members. "The response, so far, from the community has been good. It is natural my ALP opponents oppose the concept and no doubt a few "i's need to be dotted and t's to be crossed" but the concept is clearly gaining momentum," he said. "The Queensland public clearly rejects the Federal government's open slather approach to foreign investment and if the issue is not addressed, we will be cursed by the next generation who will find Australia an economic colony of foreign powers especially Japan." He said if it was introduced, a rate of tax could be struck so as to determine the level of foreign ownership desirable in the State. "Many long term owners, such as English pastoral companies, could decide to subdivide theirvast pastoral holdings, making these lands available to Australian buyers. "Speculative purchases by Japanese, Hong Kong and New Zealand investors, which are driving up land values beyond the means of Australian families, could be arrested. "The Government would control the situation. The Queensland Government is the only Government to set up a Foreign Land Register and is uniquely placed to make such a move. We can and we must, for the future of our children. "I intend to crusade on this issue until it is accepted by Government and implemented," Mr.Hinton said.

BROADSOUND ALP candidate Jim Pearce said this week identified wetlands in Queensland should not be further destroyed by ad hoc development. •• "Wetlands along the Queensland Coast have an economic aswell as ecological, recreational, educational and scientific aesthetic values," Mr Pearce said. "Nature provided wetlands as the vital link between dry land and the sea to sustain a balanced environment. "Wetlands play a vital role in the life cycle of fish, providing food and nursery areas. "Birds such as egrets and ibis are abundant in wetlands where food is plentiful and natural vegetation encourages roosting and breeding," he said. "Many wetlands act as home or feeding areas for migratory birds which Australia has agreed to protect." Mr Pearce said wetlands in Queensland should not be further destroyed unless there was an authority given by the Government and that authority would only be given when it was a last resort to development and all other factors had been taken into consideration. "We must encourage people proposing developments to avoid disturbing the wetlands and to look fdr alternatives. "I have had long discussions with Shadow Ministers on coastal development and the protection of our remaining wetlands. The Shadow Ministers are aware that as far as the general public is concerned the Labor Party has long been the party that has guarded the environment. They are determined to go all out to ensure that policy is formulated for proper management of our coastal lands, particularly wetlands."

Erosion offer AN offer by Member for Capricornia Keith Wright to provide S100,000 to Livingstone Shire Council for restoration work on the Yeppoon main beach through a National Estates Grant is being pursued by Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton. Mr Hinton said he has complied with Mr Wright's request that he (Mr Hinton) ask Premier Mike Ahern to ear mark $100,000 for Yeppoon from S700,000 which Mr Wright has stated is available to Queensland in 1989/90 and would include provision for beach restoration work. "One thing is certain, the situation with regard to the erosion on the Main Beach is urgent," Mr Hinton said. "It is a disaster area and the undermining of the sea wall adjacent to the Surf Life Saving Club is catastrophic as it will certainly mean the eventual collapse of the building if action is not taken by council to redress the issue. "The State Government position• is quite clear. We will provide a subsidy of 25 per cent on all beach protection works undertaken by council and will assist council with planning and programming of any works including the construction of a groyne and beach nourishment works. "We are grateful for the financial assistance of S100,000 offered by Mr Wright and I have requested the Premier to advise myself and council as to procedures necessary to obtain this invaluable assistance."

Council may sponsor visitors LIVINGSTONE Shire Council will consider sponsoring 75 Queensland Port Authorities' Association delegates to a visit and afternoon tea at Koorana Crocodile Farm. It will cost S712.50, which has not be provided in the current budget. Shire accountant Denis Murphy's recommendation, that funding be considered in the next budget, was adopted.

The Port Authorities' Conference will be held from October 2 to 6 this year and is being held in Rockhampton for the first time. Rockhampton Port Authority, on behalf of the organising committee, approached council to sponsor the crocodile farm visit at S6 each admission plus S3.50 each for afternoon tea. The 75 delegates will also visit the Capricorn Iwasaki Resort.

Emus suffer shock 22-4 defeat

By Jeff Quigley THE mighty Emu Park Emus suffered their second defeat on the trot when theywent down 22 points to 4 in a shock loss to the under-rated Norths outfit. It was a game they should have, could have, id would have won, if they had done one thing ... play football. If they were race horses the stewards would have swabbed them. The highlight of the game for the Emus was the mighty try scored by big bad Kel West in the first minute of the game, when he busted the brittle defence to force his way over. From then on things just got worse. In the fifth minute of the game Hacksaw Jim Duffy earned the dubious distinction of being the first Emu banished from the field of play when referee Hill ordered him off for being the `third man into a scuffle'. What makes the matter worse was the punch he threw would have had trouble knocking his grandmother over. While Conic Anderson was down receiving attention to a ankle injury, the Blues were able to capitalise on a two man overlap and score a converted try to gain the lead. With their backs up and the Park only offering token resistance Norths was able to score another converted try to go into the halftime break leading 12 points to 4. The halftime rev by the coaching staff failed to lift Park's spirit and the Blues simply carried on with where they left off. They were able to race in two more tries to make the final tally 22 points to 4. They were unlucky not to score two or three more but narrowly missed out when the final passes went astray. Best players for the Park were O'Mara, Slotosch, Buckley and Nicholls. Supercoach Jack Gibson once said 'every team is entitled to one bad game a season', well we certainly had ours. It was great to see the loyal supporters still able t o give the guys a cheer as they left the field play. L,-he Park suffered a setback at training last Thursday night when former great Foley Shield hooker Herman Anderson aggravated an old neck injury which forced him to stand down from the starting line up. The big question is

what will he do with the new training boots? Don't forget the fancy dress night is on this Saturday night at the Pine Beach Hotel. Everyone is welcome to what guarantees to be a great night's entertainment. There's a pig on the spit, live band and plenty of great prizes. Be there or be square. This Saturday sees the Mighty Emus take on the form team of the competition ... the Etna Creek Diehards. As the game is to be played on the inside of the prison no spectators are allowed. We can only take an official party of 25 inside and let's hope they let the 25 of us out.

Junior league calls for players CAPRICORN Coast Junior Rugby League is seeking 10, 11 and 12-year-olds interested in joining a Rockhampton weekend competition. The young players would be taught rugby league skills under the 'mod league' adaptation of the game. A spokesman said the club would be working with Yeppoon Primary School, which already fields weekday fixtures for these age groups. Yeppoon Primary has an experienced band of teachers who are coaching the young players for the Friday inter-school competition. "What we are seeking is any overflow of 10, 11 and 12 year-olds from Yeppoon Primary who

MEALS 6 days a week

could join children from other schools in the area who are not playing rugby league, such as Emu Park and Farnborough," he said. The mod league competition would be played on Sunday mornings. "Hopefully some games can be played in Yeppoon. New players can join the band of youngsters now to lining each Saturday at 9am on the new Rugby League Ground on Tanby Road." Coaching of the children from seven years through to the under 12s is well supervised under the guidance of coaching director Bill Thorpe.

Swans' reserves steal limelight giving BITS first loss for 1989 •

By Jay Blake

LAST week Yeppoon Rules Reserves stole the limelight by inflicting BITS' first defeat of the season and more to their credit, kept them scoreless in the process. Unfortunately, their score 15-30, detracts from the performance slightly and Mike,. Wozniak must be wondering if the goal umpires are standing in the right opening. JR Heathcote controlled the game from the centre with his customary no-nonsense style and it was his ability to win the ball consistently early in the game that was the impetus of the Swans' win. Ray "Are you being served?" Lawer played his best game of the season with his vigorous tackling being a major feature. Dwayne Roberts was everywhere and in everything. His terrier-like performance caught the eye of the selectors and undoubtedly will be playing A grade football before too long. John Pidgeon once more ran his legs off and this combining with the ever-improving Tim `Moose' McGrath could prove vitally important come September. Widely travelled overseas pair `Hack and Harris' and 'Butta' McDonald paid their way with fine games at centre half back and centre half forward. It was great to see last year's final series hero Rob Masek playing and everyone's fingers are crossed he has overcome his injury problems. Scores: Yeppoon 15-30-120 def BITS 0. Best players: Heathcote, Lawer, Roberts, Harris. Goals: M Donka, Harpo 3, Hacker, Lawer, Bird and Pidgeon 2, Mark Wetzler 1. The A grade game against BITS was impressive with the huge winning margin flattering them and the only consoling feature was that finally they managed to kick accurately. For the second week in a row the side murdered full forward Warwick Chapman and it's about time the forwards and followers had a good about how they're crowding him out. Grant Boyd found the touch that has eluded him over the last few weeks and I'm sure that put some broad smiles on the faces of our two favourite Kinka residents. `Dad' Williams strung four quarters together and looked quite impressive in his white epauletteswhile his partner in crime Bryan Munn displayed all his wares. Congratulations to Mark Van Gestel for bagging nine goals and making me eat my hat. Tony Warwick played a ripper of a second half and Tim Mynott impressed with his strong straight ahead defence from the back pocket. Scores: Yeppoon 30-16-196 def BITS 11-9-75. Goals: Van Gestel 9, Bryan Munn 5, W

Chapman 4, C Bill 3, Brett Lord and Boyd 2. Best: Williams, Boyd, Van Gestel. This week the Swans take on' third-placed Parkana at Church Park. Awards: A Grade, Mug, Anthony Warwick; Mark Van Gestel Pacific dinner for two; Steve Burns, Murph's Sight n Sound; Greg Williams, Kirstin's. Reserves: J R Heathcote, mug; Anthony McDonald, Pacific dinner for two; Greg Bain, Annie's Pies; Ray Lawer, Angliss.

Sportsmanship wins in Rules

LAST weekend the junior Aussie Rules Swans played only two grades against Brothers at Victoria Park in Rockhampton. Unfortunately, Brothers was unable to field an under 15 side and Swans under 17s pulled out at the last moment leaving Brothers' under 17s without a team to play against. The games played were only scratch matches due to an undermanned under 11 Swan side and an undermanned under 13 Brothers side with Swans taking the points. The games were good spectator games. Sportsmanship ruled on the day with both teams lending players to the undermanned sides. Under 11s had their usual great spectator thriller with Swans coming out the victors 5-737 to Brothers 0-1-1 but half the Yeppoon side was made up of Brothers players. Best players for Yeppoon were Shawn Denning, Owen Battersby and John Lawton. Now the Swans have had a few games, a vast improvement is showing in their ball skills with the boys now hand balling and looking for team mates to kick to. Well done Swans and congratulations to their coach Peter Murray. Under 13s showed true sportsmanship and lent the undermanned Brothers' side their two best players, captain Doug Edwards and Bradley Hirning, and it showed on the Swans' game with the score ending Brothers 11-8-14 clef Swans 1-6-12. Although only a scratch match it was a hard fought game. Coach Dale Wetzler said the boys will have to work a harder and learn not to rely on their top players as the final score last weekend indicated. Best player for Yeppoon was Peter Guyer who never gave in until the last whistle, Cameron Blake and Shane Campbell who also did likewise. All three are the smallest men on the side. Sundays gaipes are under 11 and under 13 only, against Emu Park under 11 and St Brendan's under 13 at St Brendan's.

BECAUSE the Zilzie Golf Club course had not recovered from the wet weather, a stroke play on Thursday, April 27 showed poor results. Winners were P Mallick with 66 nett and P Barker 82. On Sunday a stableford play showed better results with winners L Taylor 41 points and G Pearson 36. Pinshot went to N Bull. A stroke game for associates will be played on Saturday. It is the first day of the fifth monthly medal and QLGU Brooch. Sunday is Central Queensland Cement Pty Ltd Open Day starting at 9am. An 18 hole competition will be played in conjunction with club monthly medal. There are good prizes for long drives, pinshots and Bradman's trophies. A barbecue will follow to finish off the day. Please nominate early by phoning the club on 39 6356 or 39 6625, however late nominations will be accepted.

Tennis fixtures THE following teams have been set down for Yeppoon and District Tennis Association fixtures at Daniel Park, Cooee Bay, on Saturday. Players are reminded starting time is 12.30pm.

"Anyone who wants to play can come along to the Cooee Bay courts next Wednesday from 6.45pm. They can join in or watch." In the C C Crocs v Rockets Black game beginner Stacy Gorman and Tanya Boland showed how they will perform during the season. They worked hard and played with enthusiasm.

Birkett, Moulds and Hinton are new district triples champions ANOTHER Yeppoon Bowls Club competition hit the dust and the new district triples champions are Frank Birkett, Dave Moulds and Clarrie Hinton. In the semis Frazer Freeman, Dick Sinclair and Terry Woodbridge defeated Key Thompson and Frank O'Brien, who -subbed for Tom Roos, and Barry Atkinson 25-13. Terry played top bowls and many times drew to put his team ahead. Barry and company stayed on six for six ends while Terry had gone to a lead of 22-6. "In the other semi Clarrie and Harry were at it again and I wonder if Harry is ever going to register a win," the club's publicity officer said. "He again said he was going to give up this silly game and go fishing but added he was going to use Clarrie for bait. . "Clarrie again drew away and when he scored a six on the 18th that was Frank Birkett, Dave Moulds and Clarrie Hinton 30 def Scott McClymont, Laurie Collins and Harry McNamara 24. In the final Terry Woodbridge won the first four ends to lead 5 nil but by the ninth Clarrie had levelled the score 8 all. Terry led 18-10 on the 15th but Clarrie won five of the last six ends to finish in front 20-19. One open triples was played with Geoff Lambert, Mark Gustafson and Roy Graff proving too strong for Norm Richards, Keith McKimmie and Graham McCosker 24-21. Graham led 11-4 and 17-10 but in dropping a five on the 16th was their downfall. Arthur Rail, Jack Hoare and Reg Gibbins had a decisive 21-11 win over Rob Skuthorpe, Col Hennessy and Brendan Croese. Tom Dorrell and Bill Roberts were never headed in their

game against Gordon McKenzie and Frank Birkett winning 26-19. Peter Brown proved too strong for Brendan Williams winning 25-20. Peter was leading 2214, needing three which were scored in singles, while Brendan added six to his total. Ray Campbell registered an easy win at the expense of Frank Whiteley 25-9. Dick Sinclair held Don McPherson to 19 all and did not score again with Don winning 25-19. Arnold Halfpenny kept Bill Roberts busy but allowed Bill three fours for Bill to finish in front 25-20. Frazer Freeman went down by the narrowest of margins 25-24 to Frank O'Brien. On the last end O'Brien drew two shots in line with the jack and expected Frazer to drive but he elected to draw and fell short. In C division Graham Williams recorded an easy 26-8 win from Alan King. Roy Cain went down to Norm Richards 12-25. Ken Moore had much the same score against Des Ryan 25-17. George Cavanagh started off well but when he reached 16 fell in a hole and Brendan Croese caught up and became the new leader on 18. Then George kicked on to 22 and once again waited till Brendan made it 22 all. George then scored a single and two to take him out. Arnie Petersen proved last week's win over Graham McCosker was no fluke, winning again, 25-21. Graham had his chance. He led 8 nil, 16-5 and 21-10 then did not score again. 'Three games of mixed pairs were played and Tom and Dell Roos scored a runaway 39-12win over Dolly and Don McPherson. Eleanor Batts and Clarrie Hinton were too strong for Dulcie Locke and Ken Moore, winning 30-12. It was an even contest between the Mantheys, Bill and May, and the Freemans, Frazer and Margaret, and the Freemans fmished on top 18-17.

Emu Park soccer teams prove too good for Yeppoon players EMU PARK soccer teams proved too good for Yeppoon teams by winning all three games in different age groups at Yeppoon's Apex Park on Saturday.

Best players for Bobcats were Luke Kershaw, Lance Inslay and Shanatosh .Ramiah. More players are required for Yeppoon under 8/9 teams. Emu Park under 8/9 played Raiders 6-2.

ONE of those anonymous correspondents reports there was a tidal wave in Coorooman Creek about 5.30am on Monday. Seems a brother took his sister crabbing and, having such fun, they "stepped out" together. The shame of it all was that there were no onlookers so reports of the sister's bruises in places she can't show have to remain unconfirmed. Still, they were lucky ... they had a "leaver" to help them back into the boat, and never lost a crab!! • • • LONG weekends can become even longer if you work at it ... "Old Baldy" learned on Saturday morning was scheduled to fence part of the yard for the two family dogs. Suzy, reading from a list of jobs to be done, had "OB" and Rhett ticked off as the tradesmen. Neither feels the slightest bit happy with that sort of work so they put off buying materials until it was almost too late on Saturday afternoon ... but that ploy failed when Bev and Frank Green were still open. Still, it was too late to start Saturday. Sunday dawned with "OB" deep in sleep and nothing would shift him. As the sun headed higher Suzy reminded him he was doing the fence regardless of what time he got up. A the sun sunk lower, he, with Rhett, started:' Armed with two pairs of pliers and a fourpound hammer, they drove in star stakes, stretched fencing wire, unrolled 50 metres of chicken wire, stretched it, tugged at it ... and got very little done. When the sun finally dropped behind the horizon, "OB" realised he was a long was from finishing ... so he called on Rhodes for help. Rhodes, who was going out that night, gave great assistance. He turned on the car lights to illuminate the job site, moved the roll of chicken wire about a metre ... and had a shower. "OB" and Rhett laboured into the night. Monday dawned and again "OB" stayed in bed. Rhett, who was a bit fed up with his father's organisational skills, rudely woke him and set him to work. Together, father and son laboured through the day. "OB's" hands, not used to anything stronger than pointing at what work others have to do, cramped ... and Rhett was left the main job of tying off the wire with the pliers. As the sun sunk slowly in the west Tina and Duke, the proud owners of the enclosure, were locked in. "OB" and Rhett headed for a walk to the beach ... and 8.15 seconds later both Tina and Duke were walking with them. It seems the pair of them had patrolled the fence, found its weakness ... and decided the whole idea must be to get out while the getting was good. By carlight, the part that hadn't been wired off was repaired and the two dogs spent the night in Stalag 17. "OB" swears he's spending the next long weekend at the Mirror office ... although Suzy did say on Tuesday morning that the office carpark would look nice if there was just a low fence around it!!! • • • BY the way, on Tuesday afternoon, during another escape attempt, Duke hurt his paw on sharp wire. There was a rushed trip home, much bathing in Dettol, a trip in the car for Duke and a leisurely evening sprawled at the office plus the rest of the night lounging in the lounge room at home ... with Tina, who didn't like the idea of a night on her own in the-fenced yard!!! • • • JUST a teensy item about the Mirror's new computerised accounts ... while "OB" and Rhett built the fence, Suzy spent the long weekend preparing the first statements on the computer. They were mailed on Tuesday morning, look a lot different from the old ones, have a couple of mistakes in places ... and Suzy will be at the office on Saturday to handle any queries!!! • • • KINKA BEACH woman, just back from Melbourne, was telling a story of woe regarding her nice new car which she damaged when she hit a galah at 100km/h. A "friend," who listened to her tale, recalled the time he was driving through a nudist colony and hit a cockatoo!!!
