Govt to build low income homes on Coast

EIGHT new detached housing commission homes will be constructed in Yeppoon to help ease the housing shortage for low income families. Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton this week announced the Queensland Housing Commission is currently negotiating to purchase eight new sites and construction of the homes will start in the new financial year. "At present there are only six detached housing commission homes in Yeppoon, one of which is permanently rented by Livingstone Shire Council," Mr Hinton said. "This is a totally inadequate situation and is being corrected. The waiting list for housing commission homes stands at 17 persons. There are 11 attached units currently rented out by the commission and 25 pensioner units. "My major emphasis has been on pensioner units and the completion of the Bill Shuttlewood Lodge has been a major advance. A further eight pensioner units are under construction in Whitman Street, in a complex which will be known as Ron Kershaw House, after Ron Kershaw, who has done so much for the St Vincent de Paul Society." Mr Hinton said th. name Ron Kershaw House was recommended to him by Yeppoon Pensioners League in recognition of Mr

"Funding for public rental housing was more than $250 million and $135.7 million was spent on home ownership schemes this year. Last year more than 6400 households obtained public housing through Queensland Housing Commission rental vacancies. Public rental stock now exceeds 30,000 dwellings, with the average three bedroom home rental, $46 per week. "For Yeppoon to have such a small number of housing commission homes is not good enough, but the number of new homes I have

Kershaw's outstanding service to the poor and needy. "The eight new houses built in Yeppoon will be greatly appreciated by families who have waited a long time for homes at reasonable rental. I can assure Yeppoon residentswho are still waiting that the urgent need will be certainly addressed." Mr Hinton said the State Government's commitment to public rental housing was almost twice that spent on home ownership schemes.

secured will more than double the existing stock," Mr Hinton said. "In addition to the 30,000 rental dwellings, the Queensland Housing Commission provides a further 656 houses to community organisations for use as 'crisis' houses for emergency rental. "I have been successful in obtaining two crisis houses in Whitman Street, Yeppoon. These houses are being organised by St Vincent de Paul Society with maintenance responsibility carried by Livingstone Shire Council. "It is an outstanding project and Livingstone Shire Council and St Vincent de Paul Society are to be congratulated," he said. "I understand St Vincent de Paul Society's Ron Kershaw is currently seeking additional furniture for the homes from the community and I urge the community to give support. "The State Government is providing increased low rental houses for low to moderate income families to ease the burden of the .housing shortage. "I am endeavouring to provide adequate housing in Yeppoon."

HOMELESSNESS is a vague term. If your picture of homelessness is shuffling old men who sleep on park benches at night or desperate looking youths living in derelict houses,,' then you can sleep peacefully tonight. Today's homeless are often living in conditions brought about through marriage breakdown, violence, alcohol abuse, child abuse, eviction, unemployment, poverty, high rental costs for substandard housing ... there is a breeding ground for widespread and escalating homelessness. The sad fact is that in this affluent Australian society, homelessness is on the increase. Whatever is being done for the homelessness is not enough. The Salvation Army has, for many years, been involved with helping people in these circumstances. It would like to increase, not just maintain its present services in this crisis accommodation area. On Sunday, May 28, volunteer collectors will call on you to help shoulder the community responsibility which the Salvation Army has willingly carried for so long. Should you wish to be a volunteer collector, please contact appeal director Captain Bill Hutley, 28 4156 or meet at St Ursula's College at 8.30am on Sunday, May 28.

Seniors Card for concessions

ALP Broadsound candidate Jim Pearce said this week that Capricorn Coast senior citizens would be delighted with Labor Party initiatives to introduce a 'Seniors Card'. Mr Pearce said the Queensland Seniors Card will act as a universal concession identification for the full range of age concessions. "The card will be issued to all Queenslanders over the age of 70. It will also be issued in the 60 to 70 age bracket subject to a simple and generous income test," Mr Pearce said. "Unlike current complicated eligibility rules, the Queensland Seniors Card will be available for Queensland seniors irrespective of whether their income is generated from a pension, superannuation or from other means. "In addition to increasing the number of Queensland seniors eligible for age concessions a Goss Government will increase the range of concessions, rebates and reduced charges forwhich card holders will be eligible." These will include: railway travel, local and long distance bus travel, car registration, driving licence fees, electricity and gas rebates, specialist medical equipment such as hearing

Lower payments for shire council

QUARTERLY payments on interest and redemption of Livingstone Shire Council loans will provide significant gains, council's May meeting was told. Shire accountant Denis Murphy said the Queensland Treasury Corporation had quoted quarterly payments should council agree to its managing loan repayments. Mr Murphy said council had joined a scheme in October last year which had been proposed by the Queensland Treasury Corporation. Details of all loans had been given to Treasury to have council's loan programme valued and and interest and redemption payments calculated. Savings would be derived by making four quarterly payments instead of making halfyearly installments. For a comparison, Mr Murphy said 1988/89 payments had totalled S2,696,105.19 while the Treasury scheme would mean payments totalled S2,408,279. Council resolved to take advantage of the scheme.

"A Labor Government elected later this year would men our most respected citizens could look forward to a government concerned for the welfare of the elderly," he said. "The Seniors Card is an important step forward in improving the quality of life for our senior citizens, but is only part of a very impressive Labor Seniors Policy which takes into account the special needs of older citizens."

LIVINGSTONE Shire Council has moved closer to buying Department of Industry Development land adjacent to the old Rockhampton Road for $200,000 and selling land for $120,000 to be used for the Coast's TAFE College. Council wrote to Industry Minister, Small Business, Technology and Tourism Minister Rob Borbidge offering S200,000 for the industrial land and accepting $120,000 for the TAFE adjacent to the new approach to Yeppoon. Council proposed that since there was an S80,000 difference, it would pay that off in four annual installments of S20,000 each. It proposed to develop the industrial land as either an integrated industrial park or as a rural residential estate to finance an industrial park in a more appropriate location (in conjunction with the possible Pivot mining project). Council's offer of $20,000 a year over four years was accepted subject to council agreeing to pay interest on the $80,000 balance. Council accepted the terms.

NON-TOXIC organic sprays and pest and disease control in fruit trees and ornamentals are the topics Rockhampton Botanic Gardens curator Tom Wyatt will address at the Rare Fruits Council meeting on Saturday. Mr Wyatt is also known to Central Queenslanders through the ABC gardening programme. The meeting is at Tony and Denise Welch's property on Adelaide Park Road, adjacent to Adelaide Park homestead on the righthand side just before the brickworks. Tony and Denise have a small nursery and a mixed orchard specialising in mangoes and lychees. The programme starts with a farm walk at 2pm and the meeting starts at 4pm. It includes the usual plant auction and fruit tasting and will be followed by a bring-your-own barbecue. Membership of the Rare Fruits Council is open to anyone. Many members have town blocks and use the new fruit trees and shrubs to landscape their gardens. If you are interested in gardening and would like to grow something a little different, go along to the meeting and enjoy a pleasant afternoon.

MLA's warning on fishing nets 3 THE holding of commercial fishing nets by other than licensed fishermen or recognised makers or dealers in commercial fishing nets is illegal and illegal fish netting is subject to prosecution. Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton said the illegal netting of fish species such as barramundi in Central Queensland waterways is being policed by Boating and Fisheries Patrol officers. "The public's co-operation in notifying the patrol when persons are seen in possession of illegal nets is absolutely essential," Mr Hinton said. "Netting may be used fora variety of purposes including agricultural, horticultural and decorative purposes. However, as a fish net in other than the control of a licensed commercial fisherman, nets are illegal and their use in Central Queensland waterways must be curtailed. "I appeal to the public to report the incidence and/or the use of illegal nets either to the Boating and Fisheries Patrol or to the Queensland Fish Management hotline on 008 017116 to help protect our vital fisheries resources from over exploitation and illegal netting. "It is not dobbing in your mates, it is essential environment protection and Central Queenslanders must adopt a mature approach to this urgent conservation issue."

Are councillors 'them or us'? ARE Livingstone Shire councillors employers or employees? This is a question that will eventually be answered in court but until that day, councillors have been urged to lodge Employment Declaration Forms with the shire clerk. The Local Government Association of Queensland recommended to the May council meeting that the employment forms be filled out pending the decision of a Federal Court challenge mounted against the requirement by Mosman Municipal Council in Sydney. The association told council the Australian Taxation Office had ruled that Pay-As-YouEarn taxation installments must be deducted from councillors' allowance "as if elected members were employees". "This case will not be heard in time to clarify councils' obligation under the new Tax File Number legislation," association secretary Greg Hoffman said. "If it was possible for the case to be heard, and the judgment included a declaration to the

YARC Secretary Leo Mackie said the March meeting, for which the road had been graded, carried the most prizemoney of all club meetings. Just over $20,000 was distributed. In a report, shire accountant Denis Murphy said while council had provided funds toward sporting organisations such as rugby league, soccer, Australian rules, and cricket, it was unlikely any of those organisations would have access to finance of the magnitude quoted by the racing club of $20,000. "In addition, it would seem unreasonable for ratepayers to finance the grading of the access road for the meeting of March 1, or any other," Mr Murphy said. "To do so would necessitate favourable consideration being given to similar requests from other sporting organisations." Mr Murphy said support for the local economy from the racing industry, while substantial, would appear not to be exclusive to that sport. "Sporting organisations such as football, golf and bowling clubs would attract visiting players and supporters on possibly a more regular basis than racing," Mr Murphy said. It was recommended council not refund the S87. Going against the recommendation, Cr Maurie Webb moved council pay the S87, saying it would be a "very small encouragement". Cr Roy Wall seconded the motion. Cr Ellen Cogill was against the motion saying it could "open the floodgates". Cr Lloyd Webber was also against the motion. He said the report to council "speaks for itself". Council defeated the motion then resolved not to pay the S87 refund.

effect that elected members are not employees, then presumably the only obligation created by the tax file legislation after April 14, 1989, would be to issue group certificates instead of statements of earnings as to elected members' allowances. "While the odious employer/employee tag persists, council may expose themselves to severe penalties for not deducting from elected members' allowances PAYE tax installments at the appropriate rate." Livingstone shire clerk Jim Brown recommended councillors complete Employment Declaration Forms. Crs Roy Wall and Ellen Cogill moved and seconded the recommendation. Cr Wall suggested the basis of employment was casual or part-time. Cr Lloyd Webber, discussing the motion, proposed that council convey its disgust at "having to pay tax on the pittance we receive". Councillors discussed the matter for several minutes then carried the recommendation.

bowls clubs by teams from Yeppoon Indoor Bowling Club recently have resulted in four wins for YIBC and two losses. But in the games that were lost, against QRI and Wandal, only a point separated the winners and losers. Against QRI. the Yeppoonites scored 126 points to QRI's 127 and Wandal's 97 was one more than the YIBC total of 96. In the four wins the margins in YIBC's favour were much greater. In Rockhampton YIBC defeated Depot Hill 148-93 and beat Capri 121-72. At Yeppobn last Friday night Rockhampton clubs St Mary's and Koongal went down to YIBC which defeated St Mary's 104-88 and overwhelmed Koongal 109-68.

You said I ADVERTISEMENT dragged all these innocent bystanders into this business. In fact, your statements did just that. I'm puzzled how you can claim I have suddenly developed an interest in the Australia Day Awards. For the past five years the bicentennial committee including myself have been members of the Australia Day Council, are you? Since November 1983, I have been fully committed to the shire's bicentennial celebrations and, very many bicentennial awards were presented in every direction the committee could see the need for recognition. The thrill and enjoyment of seeing the happiness and appreciation in faces of all ages of those who received awards during those years, made me want to see more recognition given people in our shire.

Spy reveals hobby horse hopes A REPORT on Saturday's Hobby Horse Derby has been prepared by the Keppel Coast Guide Association form guider after watching early morning trackiwork behind bushes, under trees in the back blocks of the Capricorn Coast hinterland and beaches. The draw for starting times in the ninth annual Hobby Horse Cup was completed on the weekend. under the close scrutiny of the GGJC (Girl Guides Jockey Club). The total of 68 nominations is one of the biggest fields the GGJC has had to organise and contains an interesting mix of 'old' stayers and new hopefuls. The derby promises to be an action-packed morning of "racing". Add to that the great variety of stalls and other entertainment and the Coast has an event not to be missed. Games of skill, chocolate throws, camel rides. face painting, lucky dips, train rides, toffee apples. cent sale and raffles will give a carnival atmosphere and the produce and craft stalls will ensure many bargains are available. Watch the antics of the Hobby Horse-men and women, and be entertained by the toe-tapping music from the 4R0 Big Band. Form guider expects the competition to be intense throughout the morning, as reports have filtered in concerning some excellent track-work. Some trainers have moved to the beaches to prepare for a heavy track and others have gone to the hills for endurance. No outright favourite has yet appeared, but form guider insists the best bet is to go to Beaman Park for at least some time on Saturday morning. Heat one, the First Novice Handicap, should be dominated this year by Turn-out (Yeppoon Fire Station), who relishes the wet track. The 9am start might be too early for Kitchen Kapers (Yeppoon Kitchens) and Pacific (is-not-so) Terrific (Pacific Hotel) at this time of the day. Tanby (Tanby Distributors) looks to have (Telecom) Promise, but look for the Flash (Aussie Tavern, Iwasaki) goihg own the outside ... it will probably be the Wombat ier (Sacred Heart School). Heat two, the 2yo Stakes, should Sea Spray (SeasprayHolidayUnits) on the trackwhich will also suit Rosslyn (Rosslyn Bay Kiosk), but not Lopol (Yeppoon Police) who prefers a dry track. Noel's Smasher-Mr Gloss (Noel's Smash Repairs) should shine unless Seafood and Eat It discos with La Bamba. Newcomer Tobruk should make a fine showing for the Yeppoon RSL. First Division wfa, heat three, brings in newcomer Tuck's Chop (James Street Butchery) who won't settle for Ani-Pie (Annies Pies), who could mop up if the track is reallywet. The new CCIS (ICA) comes in with a big name. Don't underestimate Secondhand Sally (Yeppoon Trading) and keep your eye on Cheap Charlie (Capricorn Crlast Vietnam Veterans Legion) who comeswith a lot of overseas experience. Fund-raisin' (Yeppoon State High School Parents and Citizens) is willing to work hard for success. But the 'good oil' is to staywith the green and gold of BP Yeppoon. First Division of the Maiden Handicap, heat four. may be a New Horizon (New Horizon Cruises) for Radish (Yeppoon State School) who has a change of jockey. Lioness Lizzy might get the raw (King) Prawn

(Rosslyn Bay Fisherman's Co-op) if the Fang Farrier (Yeppoon Dental Protection Association) can get a grip. However, Rails (Railway Hotel) remains favourite. Heat five, First Improvers Handicap, introduces a few newcomers to Hobby Horse racing. Simons (La Bamba Restaurant) will be trying to Gliderol (Yeppoon Door Centre) around Beachside 66 (T Perrin). Although the Lions (will) Roar (Yeppoon Lions Club) about this, Higgo's Mule (David Higgins Pharmacy) could be Stranded (Strand Hotel) by the proven class of NZ-bred Mary's Mount (St Brendan's College). In the 1989 Denis Hinton Invitational Stakes. heat six, Rotary's Revenge (Yeppoon Rotary Club) has secured a rider from the south, but the combo Waross (Yeppoon Kitchens-Bruce Ross and Co) should be hard to hold back. Skippy (Yeppoon Readymix) will have plenty of bounce. Gunsanz (ANZ Bank) has the connections and is determined to open his account this year. Pothead (Cooee Bay Store) and The Save-Norm Bull (Yeppoon News) are relative newcomers, but have shown promising form on the track. Disco Duck (Commonwealth Bank) is in the groove and should have all the right moves. The heat seven 3yo Classic will give spectators the chance to see the old-world style of Hunkey Dorey (Brian Dorey). the Gentleman Rider. This should be a Smashing Time (Yeppoon Glass) for the Lammermoor Larrikin (Lammermoor Servo) but TravelWhite (Whites Tourist Services) appears to have the ticket. The Choice Gallery (Mill Gallery) has made a good showing and Westpac Wonder (Westpac Bank) has attracted plenty of interest. However. Toplip Thommo (Angliss Savemore) should make mince-meat of his opposition and win by a short neck. The Maiden Handicap. Second Division is heat eight and CWA Flyer (CWA) has come in from the country with (Scope's) Hope (Capricorn Coast Scope). Pat-the-Pie (Lady) won't have time for a Cherry Soda (Sandy's Cafe). as Captain Kirk (Yeppoon High School) tries to give Tinnie Linnie (Robyn Murphy) a lesson. Heat nine, Beaman Park Flying. sees last year's winner Squash 'em (Capricorn Coast Squash Rackets Association) take on the evergreen Sapphire (alias Camel Dundee riding for Yeppoon Kindergarten). Be Prepared (St Brendan's College) for plenty of Scratch 'n' Dint (Yeppoon Panel and Paint), as Roy the Boy (Club Hotel) enters the fray. Nabby (national Bank) has wealthy connections, but relative newcomer Regal Rocket (Regal Bakery) has a lot of dough on it too, and is sure to rise to the occasion. Heat 10 is the Golden Gough 10.000 and celebrates race-caller Gough's special return to the Hobby Horse Derby and brings a few of the Golden Oldies into contention. The entry from Yeppoon Exhausts is Not Yet Exhausted, just rattling a bit. Herb's Hope (Minter Motors) still has plenty of it. and Keppel the Bay (Keppel Bay Motors) is not as toey as it used to be. The punters have "put London to a brick on" Keppel Surprise (PGH). but we haven't see the last of Galloping Pharmacist (Stewart and Brumm. Chemists). Sparky (Yeppoon Auto Electrics) will be trying to burn out Wanger (Wang Australia).

GARAGE SALE, June 2-4 to his office, Anzac Parade (office hours) or to the former AK Findlay's store on

Tues, May 30, 9am-10am or

Wed, May 3, 9am-10am IT'S A GARAGE SALE versus the financial might of the Combined Mining Unions of the Central Queensland Coalfields. Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton said he would never have believed he would be David facing Goliath, but the word around the electorate is that the ALP is spending tens of thousands of dollars on its State Election campaign and the funds are coming from the Combined Mining Unions. Broadsound is the second most marginal seat in -Queensland. The National Party is responding with a garage sale in the old Findlay's building on June 2, 3 anc 4, to raise funds to keep a Member of Parliament on the Coast and to keepthe union candidate out. Our funds are all voluntarily given, so anything Coast residents can spare and which could be sold, please ring my office, 39 2352, or representatives of the three Yeppoon National Party Branches: John Chapman 391054, Mario Cresta, 39 1007 or Jacky Hole, 39 1566. Items can also be left at the AK Findlay's store on Tuesday 30th and Wednesday 31st May, between 9am-10am. We are starting from scratch as far as funds are concerned. I do not believe the Coast wants to return to the political wilderness. We are facing a mountain of union money, but with your help - David may just once again down Goliath.

Sun means bowls Juniors get a kick out of match Big win to Swans



YEPPOON Bowls Club members were pleased to see the sun out and managed to play a full weekend. "Roy once again called quite a few games and all were played," the club's publicity officer said. "I had a look at the games board and was surprised to see how well they are going, especially with the atrocious conditions we have had. "It was a mudlark's paradise and a couple really handled the conditions ... Mo Stewart, Dave Moulds and I believe Jack Hoare was another." Altogether, 17 games were played, two of them in the open triples. KevThompson, a sub foribm Roos whose name was not entered on the card and Barry Atkinson, 25 defeated Harry McNamara, Reg Gibbins and Dido Graff, 10. Graff scored a four on the first end and did not score again till the 10th. Atkinson had piled up a good lead and held on to it. Frank Birkett, Brendan Williams, Bill Manthey came home by far the stronger, beating Graham Williams, Mo Stewart and Harry Maher 24-13. Maher had six on the board before Bill scored, but that was the end of it. Bill went to a lead of 15-6 and eventually won 2413. "I thought Arnold Halfpenny and myself were some sort of a show against Mo Stewart and Don McPherson but they soon showed us different. They led us 11-1 and finished in front 27-11." Laurie Collins and Dido Graff did it the hard way against Col Hennessy and Brendan Croese, winning 21-18. Graff was down 8-9 then picked up a five and three. The rest of the scoring was small numbers. Though Brendan won five of the last six ends, he could not make up the leeway. Norm Richards and Graham McCosker were down 22 on eight to Warren Royal and Frank Whiteley then went on with the job to win 21-12. Tool O'Sullivan and Lester Findlay gave away too much start to Tom Dorrell and Bill Roberts. They were down 20-5 on the 10th and finished down 24-16. Jim Quinn, Arnold Halfpenny and Frank O'Brien surprised themselves, winning 26-15 over George Cavanagh, Tom Dorrell and Bill Roberts. "Bill let us get away to an early lead 18-3 and we managed to hold on and win by 11." John Ware had a few anxious moments against Brendan Williams. He led 22-10 but let Brendan reach 20 before he scored the necessary three. Goldie Corbett forfeited his singles to Ray Campbell. Tom Roos closed Tom O'Sullivan right out in his game and won 25-7. Frank Whiteley had Arnie Petersen down 16-10 and never scored again ...Arnie winning 26-1. Proven mudlarker Dave Moulds proved too consistent for Graham Williams, winning 25 14. Probably the match of the day was Lester Findlay Sr and George Cavanagh. They were together 10 all and 19 all. Then George took his total to 22. Lester replied with two singles to make 21. George only needed two to score but Lester made it 25 with two twos. Another close game was between Gordon MacKenzie and Tony Ryan and saw the lead continually change hands. Two threes and a two gave the game to Tony 25-23. Frazer Freeman whitewashed George Hillier 26-4 in C grade. Dot and Harry Maher and Marj and Mo Stewart fell over the line against Dolly and Don McPherson. Elsie Hinton and Frank Birkett 21-20.

FOR a change, sunshine greeted Aussie rules junior players at the weekend matches between the mighty Swans and Parkana at Church Park, Rockhampton. Under Lis started with a scratch match. Parkana had about 30 players and Swans only six. Jumpers were swapped and two even sides picked. Most kids had a kick and for those who missed out, the umpire seemed to come up with some obscure free kick. so all managed at least one kick. Great sportsmanship prevailed with the Parkana scratch team taking out the day 3-6-24 to Yeppoon scratch team 0-2-2. Best Yeppoon players were Ben Sheppard, Owen Battersby and John Lawton. The under 13 side was on next and both sides looked serious to take the points. Right from the start Yeppoon's Swans swept the ball away from the centre straight towards the goals and the onslaught started. Rovers Hayden Steele and Doug Edwards kept the centre moving down to Cameron Blake and Shane Campbell. to pop the ball through the goals with help from others. "In fact all the team played bri_iantly." coach Dale Wetzler said. "It's hard to pick the top three." Final score Yeppoon 16-14-110 to Parkana 1-0-6. Best players Hayden Steele, Matthew Dean and Bradley Hirning. A repeat performance of Yeppoon's hard and fast ball play was also seen from the under 15s. From the first whistle it was obvious Parkana was no match for Yeppoon and with the return of Grant Thorpe. who showed nothing but brilliance and had obviously lost no form from his long break, it was good team effort football to watch. "The seniors certainly have some great hopefuls coming up through the ranks for future years from this under 15 side," publicity officer Shane Steele said. "In fact there is hardly a person on the team who wouldn't make a great senior player one day." Final score Yeppoon 19-10-114 to Parkana 1-3-9. Best players Grant Thorpe. Dale Perren, Andrew White and Matthew Williams. The tide finally turned when the under 17s fronted an unstoppable Grammar. Unfortunately for Yeppoon only four under 17s fronted and the rest of the side was made up of tired under 15s.

Jason Jamieson took the bit between his teeth and fought like a one man army, trying to keep the team going and, although retiring early with injury, young Timmy Farlow put in his best game. The under 15s struggled hard against tiredness and pain, but the fit and well-trained Grammar side ran amok. "Not to be disgraced, our boys fought to the end with the under 15s hardly able to walk when the last siren went," Mr Steele said. Final score Grammar 25-16-166 to Yeppoon 4-731. Best players: Jason Jamieson, Grant Thorpe (u/ 15), Dale Perren (u/15) and Steven Horstman (u/ 15). Sunday's away game is against Wandal at Stenlake Park. Only under 11s and 15s have games so no bus. Meet at Yeppoon Showground at 9am to travel by private vehicles.

Mini-rugby win CAPCOAST'S mini rugby side recorded a 32-16 win when they played Gracemere u/8s on Saturday at Rugby Park. New team member, Terrence Toon, scored the game's opening try when he strode through the centre of the ruck to score under the posts. Nicholas Craig displayed abundant skill in scoring three tries and a drop-kick conversion and Sam Bongers satisfied his appetite for four pointers by also running in three tries. Two of Capcoast's youngest players. Matthew Cranny and Craig Hackney, involved themselves from the outside. Both boys have become effective members of the Coast scrum and at the same time are learning many skills associated with the game of rugby. Coach Mike Bongers is keen to bolster his side with the addition of one or two players. "The competition is hotting up ... some of the Rocky sides are full of talent and experience," he said. "We've been short a player or two in recent weeks. so I would more than welcome a couple of newcomers." Mini rugby is played Saturday morning and is in recess during school holidays. Semi finals start in early August. Mr Bongers can be contacted on 39 4218.

Emus just can't win a trick... By Jeff Quigley THE mighty Emu Park Emus suffered another defeat when theywent fighting to Brothers in a torrid Browne Park encounter. It wasn't through want of trying. It seems that the Park just can't win a trick these days. Battling against a heavy penalty count running in excess of two to one, Emus played their hearts out but couldn't get to two competition points. The game started on an even keel with both sides willing to throw the ball about. Emus was on the defensive after being on the receiving end of three quick penalties. Brothers forwards did their work to perfection and were able to bunch the Park defence around the posts. With quick hands they spun the ball wide and were able to capitalise on the overlap and score in the corner. The conversion was unsuccessful. Emus first scoring chance came after a magnificent Tydd break. Unfortunately the finishing let the side down but the Parkies were able to keep the blues in their own quarter. To Blues credit they held out after being forced to make three line dropouts in a matter of five minutes. Park suffered a slight setback when tireless workaholic Roscoe Fordham was sent to the sin-bin for five minutes. Brad Trimms, having his first competition game with the Emus, was first to score for the Park when he ferreted over from dummy half. Kent Svendsen missed with his kick but the scores were equal. Emus came out firing in the second half. From a great scrum win against the feed Park went on the attack 30 metres out. From the ruck the ball was flicked to Kirk Doak who found a gap close to the post. As the defence converged on him he slipped a pass up for the flying Briggs who could only lay a hand to the ball. Before the ball could hit the ground Brad Trims capped his magnificent debut by clutching the ball out of midair and sprinted 10 metres untouched to score right under the black dot. With the Kirk Doak conversion the score was deuce. Then the trouble started for Park. With a string of penalties going against them they found it hard to clear their own territory. The referee directed a line drop out for the Emus after a Brothers player had unsuccessfully attempted a field goal. What made the matter worse, was the fact it was the Brothers players who indicated to the referee the ball was touched in flight by captain Matt Trims. From the dropout Brothers was able to mount considerable pressure which saw Emus finally wilt and allow the Blues to register another six pointer. Park fought back when Mark Slotosch forced his way over after great lead up work by the entire team. Unfortunately for Emus. Kirk Doak's conversion went astray, but there was only two points in it. With only eight minutes remaining the Brethren put the issue beyond doubt when their cagey old forward played the ball forward through the feet of the Park defenders and was able towin the short race for the ball over the Park tryline. With the added extras and a lead of eight points, it proved too much for Emus to bridge and the final scores ran out 22-14. Park's best players: Brad Trims. Roscoe Fordham, Gavin Tydd and Ginger Slotosch. It was good to see the return to the field late in the

game of captain Matt Trims. Make a note on your sports calendars for the great grudge match race between head coach Herman Anderson and Lee Ince. boss lady of the supporters club. It's a challenge footrace over a mile. Must be cross-country as Herman's mind wanders if he has to go around an oval. The final date is yet to be set. This week the mighty Emus travel back 'inside' to take on competition front runners Etna Creek Diehards. Unfortunately we can't take our loyal band of supporters with us.

Second round THE Coast soccer teams second, round is off to a good start after games played on Saturday ... in the wet. 7 ounces played Little Bowsers 1-0 at Apex Park on Saturday.

Daniel Kussrow 'and Terry Boon played well for Dragons. Best players for Hawks were Danny Scharf, Ashley Inslay and Paul Couani. Emu Park under 8/9 defeated Byfield Bandits 8-0. Ben Cummins. Christopher Stevens and Erin Beattie played well for Emu Park. SadhuJaffray. Renton Bishopric and James Gillespie were best players for Byfield Bandits. A fast paced game was played when Bullets defeated Bobcats 1-0. All players showed big improvements when they met in the first round. Deena Ramiah. Eugene Skinner and Chris Novak played well for Bobcats. Best players for Bullets were Lee Edgecock, David Cue and Glen Edwards. Panthers were too strong for Raiders, winning 5-0. There was some good passing in this match showing the benefit of coaching. Raiders were unlucky not to score. Nathaniel Smith, Meisha Vallentine and Cameron Shields played well for Raiders. A well matched game between CK's and Magpies ended in a one all draw. Sean Hamilton. Matthew Anderson. Danny Marshaman and Jethro Matherson played well for CK's. Best players for Magpies were Robin Knobel, Chris Robertson. Jade McKenzie and Justin Sloper. Westpac Cutters defeated Eagles 2-0 in an exciting hard game. Geoffrey Boon scored the two goals. Trista Vallentine, Tolin Moffat and Boyd McGrath played well for Westpac Cutters. Steven Novak played well in the goalkeeper's position and team mates Mark Scherlies and Daniel McKavanagh played well for Eagles. Emu Park v Byfield Bombers 3-1.

THE lights burnt late at Stevenson Park on Saturday after Yeppoon Aussie Rules Swans carried out a complete demolition job on Parkhurst Panthers. After reading the Panther propaganda Swans came out determined to hammer home the point they are the side to beat in this year's competition. The game opened at breakneck speed with both sides striving to take the upper hand. Hard tackling and smothering were the order of the day and at quarter time Swans had just poked their noses in front. Due to the heavy conditions most players had trouble handling the ball and in the final analysis it came down to who wanted the ball most and wanted to win more. After quarter time Parkhurst was held to one goal because of the tireless work of the half back line of Lacy, Taylor and Chapman. All three were clear winners with the 'Divebomber' just shading the others for award honours. With the Parkhurst forward line shut down and the Yeppoon forwards slowly gaining the upper hand Swans were able to run away with the game. Steve Lauritz had a blinder much to the delight of family and friends. He topped 40 possessions. bagged a couple of goals and marked the ball as if it were on a string. Nic Basham was once again in fine touch both in the air or battling on the ground. while Jason Jamieson was unbeatable in the aerial duels and his disposal. by both hand and foot was a treat. Coach Steve Burns again led by example with his ability to break up play with short passes. Perennial crowd favourite Professor Munn brought the supporters to their feet, albeit having a hand picked opponent, with long raking goals and one handed marks. Scores: Yeppoon 15-16-106 def Parkhurst 2-11-23. Best: S Lauritz, Basham, Jamieson, Lacy. Goals: S Lauritz, Munn 3: M Lauritz 2: Bibby 2: Van Gestel. Thompson, Tonka, Basham. Mynott 1 each. Reserves continued in their winning vein with a comprehensive victory. By charging up a gear after quarter time they left Panthers in their wake. The side had 20 good players. all worthy of a mention, but none better than JR Heathcote who at the moment must be playing the best football of his career. The Keppel Konnection ruled the backline with an iron fist and key forwards Munro and Lord were unstoppable. Around the packs Roberts and Chamberlain were everywhere and Chris Hacker battled on in the nick. The latest comeback man Russ Frew dodged and weaved his way around the half forward line and Wetzler proved once and for all that he can kick over a jam tin. Scores: Yeppoon 13-14-92 def Parkhurst 1-6-12. Best: JR. Jungle. Roberts, Burra Mac. Goals: Lord. Mont 4; M Wetzler 2; Sean, Jungle. Dan the Man i each. This week's achievement award to Munro for the shortest place kick on record. Swans play at Victoria Park to do battle with Brothers this weekend. Awards for reserves: mug. Russell Frew: Pacific dinner for two, John Heathcote: Chris' Hair Design. Dwayne Roberts: Angliss. Brett Lord. A grade: mug, Steve Lauritz: Pacific dinner. Steve Burns: Murph's Sight 'n' Sound, Nic Basham: Annies Pies, Les Lacy.

All basketballers ready for finals IT was finals week for Capricorn Coast basketball's minor season when all grades contested for the right to meet competition leaders in the grand final on May 28. Spectators of juniors games may have imagined a walkover was in the offing when Devils took every basket offered while CC Lakers struggled to find the ring either from the field or the free throw line to hold a 16-6 halftime break. It was the end half that provided the real excitement of the game when Lakers returned to the court hungry to win and fired with a real belief in themselves. Close defence may have earned Lakers the greater number of fouls but they were rewarded with numerous steals which caught Devils at the wrong end of the court leaving Lakers with virtually uncontested baskets with most of Lakers scoring well in the back half. Despite outscoring Devils in the second half 15-20 Lakers had no answer to Devils' Ryan Miller who scored an astonishing 25 of the 31 points. In Lakers team it was hard to split Steven Novak. Bobby White. Matthew Williams and. Adrian Moore who top scored with 10 points. Devils will meet Mighty Midgets in the grand final. In the Intermediates. old sparing partners Richmond and Wolfpac had their last encounter of the season with Wolfpac coming out on top when it most counted. Neither team could claim best performances on the night with poor finishing from both sides, missed shots and passed possession at each end. It was only in the second half when Frank Edwards found good position under the basket for those offensive rebounds that turned missed shots into points for Wolfpac. Andrew Moore was probably their best player in the general play. For Richmond, who never really found form. Troy Spyve put in a high work rate and Harry Bailey was top scorer. A men's final saw Scoobs. who went down last week to Saints. for the easy road to the grand final facing what was likely to be an in-form Hootans. who played an outstanding game last week against Coasters. Hootans just failed to put it together on the night especially facing Scoobs' Rocket player Brian Douglas. Bryan Allan. who dominated the scoring both halves. Matthew Boyd put in some excellent defence for Hootans with a good steady game by Dominic Vigor and Pat Cranny. Next week's clinic on Tuesday night will have guest coach Bryan Allen. perhaps his last engagement before he returns to the United States. Clinic times: Tuesday. May 30, 5pm. senior: 6pm. junior and intermediate; 7pm, squad Training; 8pm. advanced. Juniors: 9am, Devils v Mighty Midgets; intermediates 10.30am Wolfpac v Bombers; A men. 12.30pm.

• ABOVE: Bing Morgan presented Morgan's Bakeries Toast of the Coast Park Stakes trophy to Fast Guard's part-owner Peter Symonds at Tyrer Park on Wednesday. YARC president John Millroy looks on.

Fast Guard takes Toast-of-the-Coast MORANBAH-trained Fast Guard narrowly won the Morgans Bakeries Toast-of-the-Coast Park Stakes over 1200m. at Tyrer Park racecourse on Wednesday afternoon. The four-year-old Imperial Guard grey gelding was only having his 13th race start for six wins — the last four in succession. Fast Guard, rated a 6-1 chance by the bookmakers, was taken to the front by regular jockey Stephen Booth and just lasted to beat the fast-finishing Nebraska Nick, which came from a long way back at the home turn. The promising Rockhampton galloper, Anything, loomed as a threat 200m. out but faded on his run to finish third with the margins between all placegetters being half-heads. In a winning day for the bookmakers, only the first favourite, Triumphant Man, won. The 6-4 on favourite, owned by Gordon Hutton, of Monto, scored the easiest win of the day, by three lengths, in the Castlemaine 2.2 Bitter Plate Handicap (1000m.) from the fast-finishing Miss Teresina. Locally-trained Little Diplomat, which is prepared by John Anderson, is owned by Norm Marsden, Trevor

Kime, John Anderson and V. Lawton, started the run of wins favouring the bookmakers. Little Diplomat won the XXXX BitterMaiden Handicap (1000m.) at 10-1, in the process giving Anderson's apprentice, Greg Donald, his first race win. The punters were off the mark again in the following race, the Denham Bros Limited Fitzroy Stakes when bottom weight Gaelic Lad, ridden by Geoffrey Booth, finished too strongly for the 5-4 favourite Dynamic Heels and another well supported runner in Pelican Road. Top weight James' Gain made amends for the unlucky stablemate Nebraska Nick to give brothers Ray (trainer) and Mark (jockey) Unwin some compensation, when he won the Yeppoon Qualifying division of the Ansett Champion Stakes which will be run at Callaghan Park on June 10. Starting at 7-1, James' Gain beat two other unfancied runners in Shanghai King and Joe's Country. The 11-4 favourite Don't Ask Me finished eighth in the 11horse field. There will be two meetings next month. The first meeting will be held on June 14 and the second on June 21.

Seagulls in try-scoring spree YEPPOON Seagulls won on the weekend after a try scoring spree and coach John Rhodes welcomed the return of tourists Bruce Campbell and Steve Stafford particularly after injuries to stars. Andrew Schick and Johri Windeknecht in the league match against Brothers. On Saturday night Seagulls lined up against Fitzroys in the match promoted through the media. as match of the round. and neither teams let their supporters down. Seagulls put early points on the board after being awarded a penalty by referee Lou Crane for an infringement in play from the kick off. Yeppoon's own Ellery Hanley' Steve Stafford. added the points to the Seagulls' 2-0 lead. Soon after. Seagulls scored the first try and the forwards worked their way into Greens' quarter. From set play halfback White passed to Alberts who passed inside to Graham White in full flight to score. Stafford converted and Seagulls led 8-0. Yeppoon was in again, in the 13th minute. when Alberts kicked deep into Greens' half from halfway. From Greens play Seagulls picked up the ball and Milligan went within inches of scoring from the play of the ball. Cooper on the fly passed to Alberts who scored, Stafford converted and Seagulls led 14-0. Greens fought back with a try after halfback Warcon split defence try, converted ... score 14-6. Fitzroys backed up two minutes later to score again from a Yeppoon mistake by kicking a loose ball and following through to fall on the ball over the line. making the score 14-12. Seagulls forwards worked well and ran the ball up hard. After attacking in Greens' quarter where Seagulls were at their attacking best, Alberts again was prominent. He ran across, passed to Adrian White who dived over. Seagulls led 20-12. From the off Milligan again ran the ball up making 30 metres, passed to winger Portch, who was tackled 40 metres out from the play of the ball. Alberts put up s high kick, Cooper following through caught the ball, passed to Stafford who scored wide out. Seagulls led 24-12.

Greens fought back to post another try going into half time. Seagulls led 24-16. After the break the Greens attacked the Seagulls half and eventually found Seagulls defence wanting and the score, 24-20. Seagulls scored their only try in the second half after hooker Grant won a scrum against the feed. Alberts again showed his class by finding a gap from 20 metres out to crash over with the score at 30-20. With 10 minutes to go, Capras utility player Rob Geebung, who had been causing problems for Seagulls throughout the match, beat defence to run 40 metres to score under the posts. He converted his own try with the score 30-26. Both sides put everything into the game for the final six minutes and Seagulls ran out winners 30-26. Front rower Scott Milligan was named man of the match. Reserve grade had a bye and the under 19 side was defeated by Fitzroy 62-2. Yeppoon points came from a penalty by Ronald Mackie. Although defeated, some of these players showed marked improved performances. Next Sunday, Seagulls play Norths in three grades at Yeppoon Showground. The junior league will play mini football between senior games.

MANY moons ago Suzy got the bright idea that the Capricorn Coast Mirror office should have a bit of carpet on the floor ... and Graham Hansen's carpet shop had just what she wanted. Graham measured the area and ordered the carpet. Unfortunately, when it arrived, Suzy didn't have the office ready so Graham stored the carpet. The moons went by, many, many moons. Finally Graham phoned to say someone else liked exactly the same carpet and could he use Suzy's piece for the job and he'd get in new stuff. Graham did the other job and ordered new carpet. Unfortunately, when it arrived, Suzy wasn't ready to have the carpet laid ... so Graham stored it, again. Many moons went by until Graham, finding this piece of carpet at the back of his shop, phoned Suzy and said he was coming to lay it that weekend ... regardless of whether she was ready. Suzy flew into an instant panic ... then Graham announced he was joking. Many moons went by. Then, last week, Graham received a huge order of carpet; rolls and rolls of heavy carpet were delivered ... and stored on top of Suzy's piece. Monday morning, just as Graham was settling in for his first cup of coffee, Suzy phoned him and said she had worked all weekend to clean up the area and she had pulled up all the old vinyl ... "We're standing here on bare concrete and we want that carpet laid right away." There was a stunned silence from Graham, who was looking at all those heavy rolls and realising he would have to move every one to get out Suzy's carpet ... and Suzy ruined the joke by laughing. No doubt many moons will again pass before it's Graham's turn to play his next joke!!! • • • TUESDAY night, State of Origin night; it's half-time and Queensland leading 18-0 ... phone rings at Mirror office. It's Big Bob Evans. The three people who read this column regularlywill know that Big Bob left the Capricorn Coast about four years ago to seek the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow that descends over Sydney ("the suburb north of Eden, where I come from," is Bob's description of the place). He makes three calls a year to the Mirror ... always after the State of Origin match. On those rare occasions when NSW wins the phone rings, the pip, pip, pip goes, followed by "ha, ha, ha" from Bob ... then he hangs up. On Tuesday he asked an amazing question: "What's the score?" "Old Bald;" told him NSW was being done like a dinner and Bob replied that he was "out bush" and had no kero for his TV set. Turns out Bob's at Lightning Ridge ("they catch opals here") and, apart from doing a "bit of lathe work and welding" from his mobile workshop, "the only entertainment here is wat ching tourists". Anyway, he reckoned he might amble into to town to catch the second half. By the way, he now has a cattle dog (it's called "Red Dog") and Bob's still heading north, expecting to hit here later this year. Two phone calls to go for more information!!! • • • RHODES, sitting at the feet of his father ("OB") where he hangs on every word, asked innocently ... "Can you get kero TVs?" "OB", who believes every question deserves an answer, told Rhodes that early model TVs were steam powered then the kero models followed. No wonder Rhodes can't bear to. read this column!
