Coast gets respite care centre THE Capricorn Coast is to have its own day respite care centre, thanks to the Federal Government's Home and Community Care Program (HACC). Announcing the grant of almost $320,000, Member for Capricornia Keith Wright said the establishment of a respite centre for the frail aged was a major win for the Capricorn Coast in the campaign to improve the quality of life for the elderly in the community. "The development of aged residential facili-

ties has been the priority but the support services are also a vital necessity," Mr Wright said. The respite care centre project has received a capital grant of 5226,000 and an increased operating grant of almost 593,000 for the year. "Providing 592,846 a year would ensure the centre will be maintained and staffed and meet the needs of the community on an on-going basis. "The capital grant consists of 5156,000 for the centre's construction costs, S25,000 for associ-


ated furnishings and 545,000 for a converted bus to transport frail aged and younger people to the centre." He said the Federal Government's decision to provide a bus and driver as part of the Capricorn Coast grant would guarantee all frail aged residents would have easy access to the new centre. Recurrent funding granted for the year provides 53,730 increase for home-based respite, S58,406 new funding for centre respite care, 518,470 for bus driver salaries, 54,180 for trans-

port expenses and 58,060 for administration costs. Mr Wright said the grant from the Government was a credit to the UnitingChurch's Blue Nursing Service which provided excellent programs under the Federal Government's HACC scheme. "Now that the Capricorn Coast Respite Care Centre has been approved, I will work towards a similar centre for Mount Morgan," Mr Wright said.

• Wright wins $30,000 for swim pool THE Don Irek. ,wimming Pool should be open this summer following the announcement of Federal Government funding of S30,000 obtained by Member for Capricornia Keith Wright. Mr Wright said he had personally taken a submission to Federal Sports Minister Senator Graham Richardson following a special meeting at Emu Park in January this year. "The need for financial assistance was brought to my attention by ALP Broadsound candidate Jim Pearce after repeated refusals by the State Government," Mr Wright said. "The money has been approved under a new Commonwealth Sports Grants Programme which specifically targets community recreation and sporting projects that have strong local support. "Funds under this programme are limited to






one shire per year and although the Marlborough swimming pool missed out on Federal funding this year, there was a double bunger advantage for the Livingstone Shire. "Livingstone Shire Council has promised to

YEPPOON Police Station upgrading has been revised upwards by Police and the public works departments to now include a separate twin dwelling unit with the total estimated costs rising to 5270 000 with the station to house the latest technology. Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton said the original upgrading proposal for the station, following Police and Emergency Services Minister Russell Cooper's visit, which included the enclosure of the ground floor of the station and with public access at ground level was

estimated at a cost less than S100,000. "It was further proposed that a separate transport office be leased in Yeppoon to cater for the administration of drivers' licenses and other transport department matters," Mr Hinton said. "After discussions with Mr Cooper and police department and works department officers, these plans have been cancelled and plans for a major revision upwards and police facilities are now being finalised. "A twin dwelling residence building to accommodate four single officers or two married couples will now be constructed separate from the police station. "This will allow the cramped police quarters presently under the station, to be utilised for other purposes and will improve considerably the quality of life for Yeppoon Police," he said. "Special facilities will be provided for 550,000 worth of electronic equipment and interview room, including audio-visual equipment. Yeppoon police station will incorporate with the latest in technology available to regional stations in Queensland. "The station will include room for the drivers' license section previously determined for separate transport office and provision also for the housing of water police. "The steep stairs will no longer be used by the public, who will access the station from the ground floor." He said the station, which recently had a second detective allocated to it, will be large enough to provide working room for an enlarged staff, which is needed at Yeppoon.

Fishermen, pine farmers in talks STATE Opposition Primary Industry spokesman Ed Casey will talk to fisherman and fruit growers tonight (Friday) at the Railway Hotel. Mr Casey will see the fruitgrowers at 5.30pm and fishermen at 7pm. The meeting was organised by ALP Broadsound candidate Jim Pearce. "He will explain Primary- Industry ALP policy and how it will affect them," Mr Pearce said. "He wants to hear their problems. "Mr Casey also welcomes anyone else who would like to see or speak to him about primary industry."

Two milestones for public library YEPPOON Public Library will pass two important milestones this month ... it will record its 100,000th loan for the financial year, a new record. This is the most annual loans ever made during the library's nearly 100-year history (the School of Arts operated a library in Yeppoon from 1897; since 1965 the free library service has been administrated by Livingstone Shire council). This large number of loans has been fueled by a dramatic increase in the number of people seeking membership. The 1000th new borrower for the year is expected to join in the next couple of weeks, taking total membership to about 3500. To celebrate these events, shire librarian Debbie Burn will be presenting S25 gift vouchers, donated by the new proprietors of Yeppoon and Savemore Newsagencies Eric and Rhonda Burger and Don and Cheryl Fee, to the borrower of the 100,000 book and the 1000th new borrower, respectively. A display of memorabilia from the library's history can also be seen.

Sandy's Kinka Beach talks softly about problems...and carries big stick {CAFE 39 2394

KINKA BEACH residents have made their feelings known about the drawbacks of progress in a calm, cool and collected manner ... with a time limit on their patience. At a public meeting in front of the Kinka Kippa on Saturday morning and a follow-up meeting with Livingstone Shire Council, the residents said they were not opposed to progress but they did not want to suffer unduly from explosions, trucks and noise in general. Shire chairman Cr John Bowen, shire clerk Jim Brown and engineer Pat Murphy listened while a deputation of four stated their criticisms then gave an ultimatum to marina developers to clean up their act by the end of this month. Speakers at Saturday's meeting, and the subsequent deputation, stressed they were not against progress, not against the marina in particular and, in fact agreed a quarry was needed to supply harbour works ... but they disagreed with "how it was being achieved". Trucks tail-gating private motorists, speeding trucks swerving past cars in a race to the harbour, trucks spilling loads of rocks onto the road, and empty trucks bouncing along potholed roads causing severe vibration to Kinka Beach houses were the main criticisms. Again, the Kinka Beach people had a reasonable attitude. While trucks in general were criticised, speakers said the drivers had to make a living ... but certain truck drivers gave the rest a bad name. Cr Bowen was told road rules were being broken every day; children waiting for school buses were in danger because the trucks drove so fast; residents were frightened to use the Scenic Highway because of the actions of certain truck drivers. The deputation asked Cr Bowen to pass on their feelings to Keppel Gateway, the company developing the marina, and Leightons, the contractors building it and responsible for the trucks. Other complaints concerned quarry blasts. Residents said they had no objection to the time the blasts were set off, but the severity of the noise and shock wave was in excess of what they were prepared to stand. They also asked Cr Bowen to contact the Main Roads Department and Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton to get a guarantee that the Scenic Highway between Kinka Quarry and the harbour, would be completely


rebuilt after the works stopped. Once again the Kinka Beach attitude was reasonable ... the roads would be torn up by the trucks because the roads were never restored after the previous harbour works about nine years ago. But this time the residents want the road completely rebuilt. Mr Murphy said the seven kilometre section could cost as much as $2.8 million to restore. The residents suggested this cost could be provided by the State Government in the same way the government had provided almost $5 million to assist the marina development. At the end of the "soft talking" the resident produced the "big stick ... the residents told Cr Bowen to tell the developers they had until the end of June to fix the problems. If, at that time, there were still complaints, residents would wage a campaign against the trucks, the explosions, the vibration, the mess and the danger. The campaign would include photographing trucks committing breaches of road rules and constant telephone calls to councillors, Members of Parliament, police and the developers.

Charity groups won't be raided QUEENSLAND Police Minister Russell Cooper this week assured charity groups they would not be worried by police during normal fund-raising activities. Mr Cooper said as long as charities had the proper permits from police or the Justice Department they had nothing to fear. "Some people are causing concern following an incident at Yeppoon last week," Mr Cooper said. He said he had checked the relevant authorities and it was not likely any charities were breaking the law with fund-raising activities. "Organisers should ensure they have the proper permits and most of them do, before starting fund-raising schemes." He said police investigating any fund-raising activities generally did so because a member of the public had made a complaint. There was no suggestion police would be raiding charity organisations running normal, legal schemes.

JACKSON: SUPPORT US AND HELP YOURSELF Three Coast schools hear Queensland Day story GREAT Keppel Island Tourist Services can handle 1000 visitors a day and those 1000 need at least overnight accommodation on the Capricorn Coast ... probably two or three nights. "Ac-corilifrociation owners who support us help themselves," Helen Jackson told more than 200 invited guests on a night cruise to Great Keppel Island and dinner aboard Reef Seeker on Friday. She outlined the promotional activities the cruise boat company, now merged with Keppel Corporation, had undertaken recently to promote the area. There was Talkabout in February and March when she met 100 travel agents from Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide. There was a follow-up with a new brochure, one that has not been seen on the Coast. The next activity was the Queensland For Sale promotion in Brisbane and the Caravan Show. Brochures were also distributed throughout all of McCafferty's bus terminals. Mrs Jackson said Great Keppel Island Tourist Services liked using slogans to show the company's attitude ... the first was "1st-class all the way". Another was "We are innovators, not imitators," and a third, a new one she particularly liked: "Don't worry about what you can't change, worry about what you can". Andy Diehm gave a talk about the boats' crews and training they were undertaking such as firstaid and lessons in Japanese. He was wearing white trousers and a neat light

Peter Slaughter, the next speaker, gave details of the fun and enjoyment visitors had aboard Reef Seeker during the day cruise to North-West Island. "They come aboard with expectations of the "trip of a lifetime" and enjoy the "experience of a lifetime". Skin and scuba diving, reef walking, sunbathing, swimming and walking on a remote island made for an unforgettable day. Keppel Corp. chairman Richard Wilson, surrounded by the grey-and-white corporate uniform, drew a laugh when he remarked at the start of his address that he was wearing red and white because his uniform was in the washing machine ... he had run out of shirts. Commenting on the luxurious surroundings of the Reef Seeker, Mr Wilson said since they'd had the "bull on the boat" (the Keppel Corp. logo) he had realised how magnificent the boats were. "We're proud to have `Keppel Cruising' with us," he said. He then gave details of Keppel Corp's expansion, with particular emphasis on the Keppel Gateway project. Glossy brochures called for expressions of interest for stage two of the marina development. Townhouses and marina shops and restaurants were mentioned but Mr Wilson said there were no fixed plans ... the expressions of interest meant that everyone could be involved in the planning so that the ultimate project reflected what people wanted to see at the harbour, not necessarily what the corporation felt should be provided. Discussing the Sunrover Resorts the corporation has developed, Mr Wilson spoke of the existing resort at Fairbairn Dam, another under way at Longreach, next door to the Longreach Hall of Fame, and yet another at Fraser Island. The Fraser Island project was still on the drawing board but it would tie in with Sunrover Rentals, a four-wheel-drive rental business in Brisbane.

He said he couldn't give further details of the Fraser Island project ... nor could he talk about another matter "but we would be very pleased if you hire a Hertz car from now on; we'll tell you about it one of these days". He closed his talk with questions. In answer to one, he said the Keppel Gateway project was costing $8.2 million for the first stage. The State Government was providing $4.6 million. The final payment, at the end of the stage one contract, was $3 million. "The next stage will start in the first week of next year," he said.

MEMBER for Broadsound Denis Hinton visited three schools this week to spread the word about Queensland Day. The first was Yeppoon State High School where he outlined Queensland's history dating from the first settlement by Captain Logan and 100 convicts at Moreton Bay to the declaration of Queensland on June 6 1859 ... 130 years ago. He said it was his predecessor, Lindsay Hartwig, who had initiated the concept of Queensland Day as a day of celebration. Nerimbera State Primary was next with the theme, country music with 'Country Bob' Walters and the children were dressed in period costume. Mr Hinton presented a Queensland flag to the school. Next stop was Emu Park State School where Mr Hinton 'cracked the whip' with a stock-whip cracking demonstrating and coaching class with children who found it wasn't as easy as it looks. The Emu Park children were dressed in early Australina and enjoyed folk dancing, billy boiling, knot tying and other things to celebrate the day.

High school First XV moved down YEPPOON State High School First XV has been moved down to play in the second XV competition of the Rockhampton and District Junior Rugby Union. Yeppoon's coach Roy Kennedy said this would be more in line with his team's ability. The team played its first game against Emmaus Second XV on the weekend. Emmaus won, 180, but only scored in the first half. "We were slow to start and let Emmaus in for four tries but then we held them," Mr Kennedy said. He said his team was improving and would fair better in the lower competition. Scorers for Emmaus: Bernard Dunn with two tries, Richard Hinton with one try and Tony Miscle converted. Emmaus Second XV A has moved up to play First XV competition, replacing Yeppoon State High School, for the remainder of the season. Their first game was against Grammar First XV and resulted in a 30-0 score, favouring Grammar. Grammar also played St Brendan's College in the Firsts' competition. Grammar won, 23-0, against the homeside. Coach Anthony Vincent said excellent play was shown by Todd Lynch, David Small, Gavin Williams, James Knuth, David Matsen and Gareth Quinn. Grammar Second XV also played St Brendan's at St Brendan's and Grammar won 7-0. Colts defeated Yeppoon State High School in the under 15 competition. The score, 8-0, resulted from tries by Scott McOmish and Geoff Warman. Colts' coach Geoff Bloomfield said Wayde Smith for Colts and Dayle Perrin for Yeppoon played well. Organisers agreed the game lacked discipline and would need to improve. Grammar defeated St Brendan's, 31-0, in the other Under 15 game. Yeppoon State High School was defeated, 12-0, by Grammar in the under 14 competition. In a catch up game played on Tuesday, Grammar defeated St Stanislaus, 10-0. Tries were scored by Stephen Dwyer and M Lloyd. Grammar under 14 again experienced victory when they defeated St Brendan's, 13-3. St Stanislaus recovered from the loss and defeated Christian Brothers on Sunday. Tries by Chris McDougall, Ryan Brazill and Ross Bayles resulted in a score of 12-0 for St Stanislaus. Playing well for the college were, Nick Bryson, Ben Carew, Kevin Mayer and Greg Watt. Brafords had a resounding victory of 40-0 against Grammar in the under 13 competition. Speaking for Grammar Anthony Vincent said that the side was improving but had been defeated by a more experienced team. He said Ethan Isles and Mitch Cole had playedwell and the team was ably led by Charles Beckett. Ian Tyson won two tight heads and Richard Creed produced good defense. Try scorers for

Brafords were Jason Papworth (2), Mark Edgar (2), Danny Andrews, Michael Bunns, Ben Greaney and Brett McGowan. Brett McGowan made four conversions. Coach Bob McGowan said Paul Spanner and Matthew Casswell in the forwards, Mark Edgar and Ben Greaney in the backs played well. Grammar's other under 13 team won against St Brendan's. The score, 16-11, was totalled for Grammar in a fine performance by Ben Compton.

Emu Park pool to get $30,000 • CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 tion. They have worked long and hard and although there is still some fund raising to be done for the Emu Park project, the Don Ireland committee is totally debt free at this stage," Mr Wright said. "Their pool is completed with a filtration plant in operation and the grass planted. The only thing needed now is the amenities block and that is what this grant will be used for." Committee secretary Yvonne Protheroe said they were excited the pool would now be opened this season. "We still have to raise $10,000 but we are confident we can do it," she said. "I have some ideas I'll start working on straight away. We have already planned a door knock in the Emu Park/Zilzie area in July. "It's going to be wonderful to have the pool open. Kids hang over the fence asking when they'll be able to use it. Nowwe'll be able to tell them this summer. "Fortunately for us, Livingstone Shire Council has been paying for the chemicals to keep the filtration system operating." Mr Wright said the Caves Lion Club had been granted 51750 towards the lighting of their tennis court. He said Central Queensland had benefited surprisingly well out of the recent Commonwealth grants with 10 projects receiving funds. "Application for the 1989-90 financial year will be called for shortly and I will keep the community informed of the deadlines involved," he said.

Queensland is a pot —'=' at the Piney. A bout the most energetic thing at the Pine Beach Hotel is the sea breeze coming in from Keppel Bay, (though the local footie club would argue that they occasionally display a burst of activity). In other words, the Piney at Emu Park is Queensland much the way it was; relaxed and easy. You can drop in for a drink, a delicious meal, or if you dare, even stay in our budget, motel style accommodation. But when you call in, don't expect anything too hectic, it just wouldn't be the Piney if it was. Sunday. Ease along with RON GIBSON ... live in the Lounge!

YEPPOON SHOW FEATURE Fibreglass Hydrofields should be on display at Yeppoon Show COOEE BAY MARINE owner Vince Welsh has a problem ... he wants to display a fleet of fibreglass Hydrofield boats at the Yeppoon Show but as fast as he brings them up from the Gold Coast they sell! In just the past couple of months he has sold six Hydrofield Jaguar 18s and five Hydrofield Sandfly 13s. "Ever since I became the Central Queensland agent for Hydrofield I've been trying to set up a couple of display boats to demonstrate to prospective customers," Mr Welsh said. "So far, I've only managed to equip the boats

then watch them disappear from the premises behind happy owners." But don't get the idea that Vince Welsh is complaining ... it's just that he really wanted to mount a full display at the Show. "I've never experienced anything like these Hydrofields," he said. "I was taken for a demonstration on the Gold Coast and frankly, the paces they put that boat through startled me. "I had my son, John, with me at the time and when the skipper explained what he intended doing in his next manoeuvre I told John to tighten his life-jacket and pointed out that he was to swim

to South Stradbroke Island." Nothing happened ... the Hydrofield executed the manoeuvre superbly and Mr Welsh took on the agency. Since that day, he has been taking people aside and telling them what happened and how the Hydrofield hull performed. His enthusiasm is infectious ... and he wonders why he can't keep enough for display purposes! The Hydrofield Jaguar 18 was the first to arrive at the Cooee Bay Marine yard in Tanby Road. Mr Welsh towed it back from the Gold Coast and parked it behind the fence late Sunday night.

Why pay the price owning something else?

When he arrived on Monday there was a buyer waiting. That sale led to the second ... and so on. But all the time he was selling the Hydrofield Jaguar 18s he was talking about the Hydrofield Sandfly 13 that he said was going to become the family boat for the Capricorn Coast. Production started a three weeks ago and Cooee Bay Marine took the first off the line. Once again, this first boat was going to be the demonstration model. The Welsh family arrived back from the Gold Coast late at night and parked the bare Hydrofield Sandfly 13 hull behind the fence. This time there were two buyers waiting the next morning. One was successful ... and the other took the next one off the production line. "I've finally found something new in boats that I can thoroughly recommend," Mr Welsh said. "These Hydrofields have to be experienced to be believed. The ride is fantastic. The performance outstanding." He said the Hydrofield Sandfly 13 could be equipped in a variety of ways to suit the family or the fisherman. "What I like about them is the small power plant they need to drive them," Mr Welsh said. "The Hydrofield Sandfly 13 only needs a 30hp motor and the maximum recommended is a 50hp. "I've found a 40hp is a nice compromise and that's the one I'll have at the show ... unless I sell it. Also on display will be a Hydrofield Jaguar 16. Mr Welsh said these could be equipped with motors between 70hp and 120hp. For anyone looking for a larger craft, the Hydrofield range, as well as the 13, 16 and 18, includes a 24 and a 40 (the Tangalooma Jet). Of course these bigger boats won't be on display, but Mr Welsh will let you look through the collection of photographs and clippings he has managed to put together. Included in the scrapbook is a write-up from Modern Fishing, May, 1989. The writer talks about the strength of the boats ... and there's a few pictures of the boats going through their paces. Once again, the writer enthuses about performance ... and points out that "the pictures represent the sort of thing you shouldn't do on a bar (Jumpinpin) under any circumstances". (Apparently what the builders demonstrated to Vince and John Welsh is a standard demo). There's another write-up, this time by Ron Calcutt in the February/March edition of Power Boat. Writing about the Hydrofield 16, Calcutt's story starts: "Hydrofield's radical new 16 is not just good - it completely redefines our understanding of what sub 5.5metre multi-hulls should be able to get away with in rough water." Later in the article, he says: "Hydrofield is offering a boat which looks like nothing we've ever seen before, and they are selling three a week to experienced boat buyers who know what the boat has to offer." By the way, the Field part of the name comes from the builder, Len Field, who puts his name on the boats. His son, Leon, is the one who demonstrates them. Ask Vince Welsh about the builder ... but be prepared for a long story. Apparently, the builder was influenced by the famous Catalina flying boat. But Vince warns Show-goers to be prepared for disappointment ... "I'll do my best to have hulls on display but if a buyer wants them before the Show, well...". If


We've got the is; Hydrofield 13 fully equipped for under $10,000! The Fantastic Hydrofield 13 & 16 will be on display at the Cooee Bay Marine stand at the Yeppoon Show. Don't miss them! See just how much room a boat can have! Talk to Vince or John Welsh

"Weather permitting, this year's gates for Saturday, Saturday night and Sunday could continue the trend of increasing attendance and entries in our expanding show," show president Brian Dorey said. A barbecue and fireworks on Saturday night are aimed at bringing in the families for the second night show at 5pm. The show-ring will feature champion axemen, Arabian costume classes, Andalusians in Spanish turnout, a camel race, an array of Dancing Andalusians from Expo, Yeppoon State High School 44 piece concert band and a firework display.

A camel race between John Richardson's bicentennial marathon entrants, Capricorn and Sapphire, is expected to be unpredictable because they haven't raced under floodlight on a sprint track., There is a change in walkways to circulate more efficiently the crowds to all exhibits. Signs have been installed to indicate major attractions. The Capricorn branch of the Rare Fruits Council has bought a permanent display facility at Yeppoon Show in the new pavilion built at a cost of 555,000.

Your total fun day

CAPRICORN Iwasaki Resort developer Yohachiro Iwasaki celebrated his 88th birthday on Wednesday afternoon with family and 500 guests. He arrived by golf cart and left after a dazzling 15-minute fireworks display. In between, the man who single-handedly put Yeppoon and the Capricorn Coast on the world map, received an award from the JapanAustralia Association, listened to a multitude of speeches of warm praise, cut a huge Bing Morgan-baked birthday cake ... and had time for his children and grandchildren. Despite the 350 Japanese and 150 Australian guests, Mr Iwasaki managed to make his birthday celebrations a time for other family members. He posed for hundreds of photographs, sought by the Press, TV and guests and, as so often noticed in the past, he appeared stiff and formal. But when his grandchildren ran forward he reached out his arms and a smile broke across his face. When the children stiffened as the flashlights grew in intensity, Mr Iwasaki chucked them under the chin and smiles creased their faces. As an event it was perhaps "the" event so far seen at the resort. There were two birthday cakes, both huge; the dazzling 15-minute fireworks display culminating in a sparkling silver/ white "waterfall" that lit up the resort for about a minute to be followed by Happy 88th Birthday in Japanese that burned brightly for another minute. Flowers sent as presents were arranged in front of and on the offical dais and the names on the cards were testimony to Mr Iwasaki's standing on the occasion of his 88th birthday; Kagoshima Prefecture governor Yoshiteru Isuchiya; All Nippon Airway president Naoji Watanabe; Japan Airlines president Susumu Yamaji; Qantas chief executive John Menadue; Kagoshima City mayor Yoshinori Akazaki; All Nippon Airways president Akio Kondo; Nippon Air System president Isamu Tanaka; ANZ Yeppoon manager Arthur Holt; and Tanby Roses. Grandson Yoshitaro Iwasaki welcomed guests then Fukuzuo Iwasaki (Mr Y Iwasaki's son) read a birthday speech written by his father. - Mr Iwasaki said he had lived through exciting times in Japan, and the world, since his birth around the turn of the century. He spoke of his special regard for young people and their education, the scholarships he has set up, the Iwasaki Foundation with emphasis on education and the dormitory built in the grounds of his Tokyo home for students. As a result of his efforts in this regard over the years, past students who have benefited from his gifts contributed toward a bronze statue of him, for which he was proud. He closed by saying he had tried to build a "bridge of good relationship and friendship between Australia and Japan". And, for good measure, he answeed the question so many people had asked: How to be so healthy and look so young at 88. His answer: "I keep an active mind". Then the tributes flowed. The chairman of the Mitsubishi Trust Bank congratulated him on his nbirthday ... and the Capricorn Iwasaki Resort which he said was Mr Iwasaki's "second home". He described Mr Iwasaki as a tourism pioneer with more than 4000 employees ... and a "warm-hearted man held in high regard, who was still energetic and looking for new ideas". The Bank of Kagoshima president said Mr Iwasaki had always "led by example", was still pursuing tourism and it was "pleasing that the younger generation will always benefit from his generosity". Former Japanese Prime Minister Mr Suzuki sent a message of congratulations ... delivered personally by his son. Livingstone Shire chairman Cr John Bowen welcomed Mr Iwasaki to "the Capricorn Coast, the best part of Australia". He told guests Mr Iwasaki had told a public meeting in Yeppoon in 1974 his vision for a resort "and you can see it here today". The resort was an example of balance between "modern man and Mother Nature". He told Mr Iwasaki "we want more of the same". Dining out on the Capricorn Coast

transfers, Island cruise with boom netting, smorgasbord lunch & underwater observatory are optional extras. Enjoy the new resort facilities for day trippers pool, shop & bar, etc

Rockhampton mayor Ald Jim Webber described Mr Iwasaki as "a man of vision" and an "entrepreneur". Japan-Australia Association chairman Professor Shizuo Saito presented a test amonial "to honour Mr Iwasaki's long co-operation between the two countries". At the end of the formal ceremonies, Mr Iwasaki left the dais with his family and greeted guests. In a little more than two hours, the biggest party the Capricorn Coast is likely to see this century closed with a bang as fireworks lit the darkness. It was explained to guests that Japanese have a special reverance for the number 8, and even more for 88. For an event of such significance to be celebrated in Yeppoon the link between Mr Iwasaki and his "second home" must be strong. From the Coast's point of view the event took on special significance ... hordes or Press and TV carried the perfect weather and idyllic setting around the world. Mr Iwasaki, again, put the Coast firmly before the eyes of the world.

The book will be a reminder of George's birthplace and Mt Morgan's colorful history. Norm and Eva Gardner, from Yeppoon's St James club, visited Keppel Sands that afternoon to farewell their friends. Raffle prizes were donated by Eva Gardner, Avis Mallory and Joan Hollands.

Emus beat Sharks Junior Swans have win and loss 24 games played by a long neck THE mighty Emu Park Emus finally cracked it for another win when they accounted for the more fancied Fitzroy Sharks at Browne Park last Sunday. In a game that was marred by too many unforced errors the Emus were able to run out victors to the tune of 19 points to 14. The Fitzroy boys started the game on-i determined note and had the park back-pedalling for the first 10 minutes. Led by Brett Svendsen and Ginger Slotosch, the Parkies put it right back to the Green machine. At the 15-minute mark the Park launched a scathing attack down the grandstand side of the ground, only to be halted metres short. With chain passing the ball was thrown right across the paddock where Mark Briggs chimed in to make the extra man and he was able to score an excellent team try in the corner. Kirk Doak put the icing on the cake when he steered the ball over the black dot with a great conversion. With the score 6-nil the Park again went onto the attack. In particular, the lovely pass Matt Trims threw to the flying Fitzroys winger. He gratefully accepted the intercept and ran 70 metres to score a six pointer and even up the scoreboard. Kirk Doak was to have nothing of an even ,---cheet so he calmly broke the deadlock by pot1„,,,,ng over a 25-metre field goal. 1 At this stage of the game the Park made two replacements with Laurie Buckley replacing the injured Ginger Slotosch and Coconut Bob Dunlop taking over from Scott Warcon. The mighty Emus were stung back into the attack. Mark Briggs made a brilliant break from inside his own quarter. As the defence converged on him he slipped a pass on to Goodfellow who continued the good work. He found Buckley in support and it was only through desperate tackling that the movement was brought to a stop some 20 metres out. From the quick play of the ball Goodie was able to run 20 metres infield to score near the post. Doak made no mistake with the conversion and the Park had the lead at 13 points to 10. At half-time, coach Anderson stressed to the boys that they had to cut the mistakes and the game was theirs. At the break Jim Duffy succumbed to a facial injury and was replaced by big bad Kelvin West. The Emus put the game out of the reach of the Sharks when Gavin Tyd scored a brilliant individual try by stepping around three defenders to score in a very handy position. With the trusty boot of Doak adding the extras the score was now 19-10. The green machine was able to score a late try which nearly caused a coronary to the coaching staff because there were nine minutes to go and only 5 points in it. The Emus were able to keep the Sharks pinned down in their own half, and much to the delight of the loyal supporters, players and coaching staff of the mighty Emus, were able to <Tack it for a well-earned victory. • ..3est players for the Park were Jason Witt who plays half, Kirk Doak, Brett Svendsen and Kent Svendsen, who tackled like a demon all day. Don't forget the fun night at the Pine Beach Hotel on Sunday night (June 11).

YEPPOON Junior Swans and Brothers had a win each in last weekend's games between the two sides at Victoria Park. For the first time this season the Swans fielded a full under-11 team with credit going to coach Peter Murray for his patience and diligence in finally scraping together a full side. Brothers however came out winners on the day, fielding a stronger and more experienced side. But to the Swans'. credit they never gave in and the longer the game went on, the more the newer members of the Swans got the idea, making the final score not as bad as it could have been. Experienced players Nathan Hiring, Owen Battersby, Glen Edwards and Shaun Denning kept the Swans fighting, helping the younger members. Final score Brothers 4-8-32, Yeppoon 2-3-15. Best players Shaun Denning, Jess Upkett and John Lawton. Under-13s showed their true strength with a

convincing win over Brothers even though four of the Swans' best players didn't front on the day. Ruck Doug Edwards and Rover Hayden Steele, both had a blinder of a game and spurred the other Swans on into their typical hard and fast game. Moving the ball out wide and continually creating the loose man made for a great spectator game. Not to be outdone Brothers came back after half time and popped a few quick goals and made the score look a lot more respectable. The Swans' backs, Nathan Farlow, Andrew Mackie, Matthew Dean and Heath Devine quickly slowed the Brothers down allowing forwards Steve Broadhurst, Bradley Hirning and under-11s player Glen Edwards to shoot for goal. Final Score Yeppoon 10-12-72 to Brothers 64-40. Best players Andrew Mackie, Hayden Steele and Doug Edwards.

Peter then won a run of ends and had Clarrie down 22 13. It was Clarrie's turn and he took his total to 20 before Peter scored again. Peter made 25 with Clarrie 21. This means Peter will meet in-form singles player Ray Campbell in the final. Ray won a double over the weekend defeating Dave Moulds in the A grade 25 20. Dave made him work all the way and it was only in the final stages Ray drew away. In B grade Ray met Brendan Croese and with Brendan leading 6 3, Ray allowed him to score only one more single while Ray reached 26.

BEV. GILLIGAN popped over to Hawaii last week with a few friends and while there took in the sights and soaked up the atmosphere. Des Tabone, who was also there, bumped into her on one of the days and asked her what she'd done the night before. Without batting an eyelid, Bev. replied that she'd had "Sex on the Beach". Anyone who knows Des would realise that he would have immediately given a double-take. Unabashed, Bev. ploughed on to tell him she was "going back for more that night because it cost only $2.50". For those of us who aren't world-weary travellers, Bev. explained that, in Honolulu, Sex on the Beach is a cocktail (perhaps I'd also better add the word) drink!!! •

BY the way, when asked what Honolulu was like, Bev. said it was just like the Gold Coast ... high-rise buildings everywhere and expensive shops. She didn't even a buy a tshirt because she said she could buy a t-shirt anywhere in Australia with "Hawaii" on it at a much lower price. Gawd, I wish I was r world-weary!!! • • • -

just in Railways half and was pulled down a metre from the try line. From the play-the-ball went to Paul Grant, Scott Mulligan to Steve Portch back inside to the ever-present Terry Lamb. Bob Hansen touched down and Stafford kicked again and added the extras. The Seagulls had a handy lead at the break of 24-6. Railways came out and applied pressure early through their forwards but were unable to break through with both teams evenly matched. With some solid defence after 20 minutes into the second half, Yeppoon came up with a try after Darren Cooper' took the ball 30 metres from his own line then ran 60 metres at full speed beating several defenders and touched down for his second try. "Radar Boot" Steve Stafford again added the extras with the score 30-6. Railways fought back with a try by front rower Ashley Mc Illwraith which was converted by Dwayne Isles, score 30-12.

Railways led 20-0 at half time and the young Seagulls ran out of puff in the second half. The reserves defeated Railways on Wednesday night by 24-6 and never were in danger of defeat.

CAPCOAST rugby union under 19 was defeated by Brothers 20-6 on Sunday. Man of the match was Dion Stevens put a lot of effort in the scrums, rucks and mauls. The forward pack of Dion, Brad Welsh and Rhodes Watson played their hearts out to no avail. Graham Pye, Shaun Webb and Warren Brown played well in the tackling department. CapCoast lineouts weren't as good as in the game against Institute and over Coast was disorganised. Coast plays Institute at Rugby Park, Rockhampton at 1.30pm. The bus leaves the railway noon.

NOTICED a few southern caravans here in the past few days so maybe the Victorians are prepared to brave the rain-damaged roads and are heading to their usual place in the sun. Shirley Moore of Kinka Beach has just returned from another trip to Melbourne (her sons are working there so she has the best of excuses) and, while away, sent a postcard to the Capricorn Coast Mirroi saying the Melbourne days were sunny but the air was "like taking a deep breath in a deep freeze". Keep it up Shirley, you'll wind up a tourist ambassador for the Capricorn Coast the way you're going!!! • • • SHIRLEY'S latest trip came about because her car was stolen in Melbourne. The V8 Holden Premier attracted attention from car thieves because it had quadraphonic sound and chrome bits all over the motor (no, Shirley isn't a mug lair, that's how the car was when she bought it). The moral of the story is that police told her it was marked for doom down there because of the "extras". When it was found the plush bucket seats had gone, along with the sound system, the "mag" wheels and all those shiny chrome bits under the bonnet. Because Shirley was feeling down over the loss of the car, friends she was staying with told her 17 cars a week, on average, were stolen from the local shopping centre. Heck, we're still at the stage up here of trying to figure out how the steering lock works and those who don't know, leave the keys in the ignition. Perhaps it's time we became more se phisticated and enjoyed the "good life" Southern friends regard as normal!!! • • • MORE on the good life ... a few months ago the Mirror carried a story about a giant cat seen sunning itself at the rear of some Scenic Highway, Kinka Beach, homes. There was a photo of a pad print ... and an unsolved mystery. A few weeks ago, "Old Baldy", Suzy and Rhett were driving home late one night and coming up Mulambin Hill heading toward Kinka Beach they saw a tan-coloured dog standing by the side of the road. As the driving lights hit it they were sure it wasn't a dog ... it looked more like a dingo. A few nights later they saw it, or another one, again ... a bit further along the road on the other side of Mulambin Hill. They have since seen it about three more times. Perhaps that was the giant cat at Kinka Beach ... even if it wasn't, it's nice to know the most Australian of Australians has chosen the Capricorn Coast for its home! •

• •

"OLD BALDY" and Suzy were walking into the Emu Park School of Arts on Saturday afternoon when a woman coming out of the hall recognised "OB" and said: "You're the Old Bastard!" Quick as a flash, "OB" replied: "No I'm "Old Baldy". Suzy's the Old Bas, tard"!!! You're a class act mate, real class.
