• ABOVE: Denham Bros Ltd managing-director Ron Smyth hands, over a cheque for $100,000 to Livingstone Shire chairman Cr John Bowen watched by shire engineer Pat Murphy (centre) as Denham' s contribution toward additional parking provided by council in Queen and Park Streets. Mr Smyth said council had extended complete co-operation by leaving the works until the New Year rather than disrupt last year's Christmas trading. The works were delayed by rain earlier this year but have now been completed. Mr Smyth said landscaping work and planting would make the area "a picture" by Christmas this year. Cr Bowen thanked Mr Smyth for the company's contribution saying it had made a big difference to the area by providing better facilities for shopping.

Labor government to consider allocation for Yeppoon gutters A STATE Labor Government will consider a special allocation of funds to Livingstone Shire Council to enable the council to carry out urgently needed kerbing and channelling works at Yeppoon. Labor's Local Government spokesman Ken McElligott said as minister in a Labor Government, he would seek urgent talks with council to determine if a case for special funding could be established. "After inspecting the heart of the Yeppoon residential area with ALP Broadsound candidate Jim Pearce, I am appalled that many streets are still without proper drainage," Mr McElligott said "Jim tells me he has spoken to residents who have paid rates to council for over 50 years and yet their yards still get flooded every time it rains. "This is a typical result of the National party's slavish devotion to tourism which forces rates up but yet provides no benefits to long term residents," he said. "Millions of dollars have been promised by the State Government for major works along the Capricorn Coast but the residents will receive nothing for basic services. "The ordinary people of Yeppoon are disillusioned with the State Government and council," he said. "When heavy rain falls, the yards are flooded and because of the poor drainage, the water lays for weeks creating smells and breeding mosquitoes." Mr McElligott said the provision of kerbing

Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton is conducting a survey to see if Central Queenslanders want daylight saving in line with other states. "There is a strong push within and without the Government for daylight saving ... advancing the clock one hour between October 29 and March 17," Mr Hinton said. "Airline timetable disruption and inconvenience in the tourism industry is motivating some Gold Coast government members to support a change to uniformity across Australia. "In Queensland, property owners have generally opposed daylight saving 'because the days are long enough' and because Central Queenslanders generally resist change. "I would like to gauge Central Queensland, opinion and will be recording opinions for anuk.„J against daylight saving at my electorate office," Mr Hinton said. "To record your view, phone 39 2352 or drop a note to Box 404, Yeppoon, 4703. "Brisbane City Council is strongly supporting daylight saving, so the debate in Queensland can be expected to hot up. It is important government members are aware of community views on these important issues, so please do not hesitate to call."

THE Queensland Government has made a contribution of $137,000 towards the new Blue Nurses Day Respite Care Centre at Yeppoon. Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton said Health Minister Ivan Gibbs had advised the Uniting Church that application for HACC (Home and Community Care) funding had been successful. Mr Hinton said it is a joint Commonwealth/ State programme on a 60/40 basis. The same applies for current cost grants. He congratulated the Uniting Church Blue Nursing Service, which has contributed S85,000 towards the capital cost of $226,000. The current cost grant of $116,555 allocated by Mr Gibbs is also on a 60/40 Commonwealth/ State basis. Mr Hinton said he received a deputation from the Blue Nurses on March 22 and sought advic for them on procedures for obtaining financial assistance to establish a day care respite centre. "I am delighted their application has been successful," he said. "A day care respite centre had originally been planned to be part of the new nursing home, but limitations on the size of the hospital grounds precluded the centre."

State's youth orchestra to play at school

FAMILY PORTRAITS It only takes a few minutes to have a Family or Individual Portrait Photo taken that will last for generations. Inquire about our Professional Standard Studio Sittings at Affordable Prices. We also do Outdoor Sittings and Weddings.

THE Queensland Youth Orchestra will visit Yeppoon on Monday, July 10 to perform two concerts at Yeppoon High School Hall. Livingstone Shire Council was requested by the Queensland Youth Orchestra Council to help promote the visit, encourage Yeppoon. people to billet the young people overnight and give financial support. Yeppoon High School is co-ordinating the billets and has only been able to accommodate half the number required. There are 70 players ranging in age from 13 to 22 yearswith the main group in the 16 to 18 year bracket. Shire chairman Cr John Bowen and deputy chairman Cr Brian Dorey will approach business people and individuals to assist with a donation of 5800 to the youth orchestra. A majority of councillors voted not to use council funds to assist because it would have to be included in emergent expenditure. "The 5800 is only 30 cents per head of the Yeppoon district student population," Shire clerk Jim Brown's report said. The orchestra is partially funded by the National Australia Bank and the costs involved are S16,000. Each orchestra member pays a levy of 5150 and fundraises for the extra money required. "It is a rare cultural experience for the people of Yeppoon and the Capricorn Coast," youth orchestra tour officer Ray Kinmont said. "It is our aim not only to bring fine live music to the people of Yeppoon but also to encourage and help the young instrumentalists in the area." Cr Bowen will prepare a press statement to support the orchestra's Yeppoon visit.

Council knocks back hire plan

LIVINGSTONE Shire Council resolved to amend the following by-laws at the June meeting. Chapter eight - Animals and Impounding (Part 1 - Keeping of Dogs); Chapter 36 Nuisance and Annoyance Control (Smoke free environment); Chapter 48 - Water Supply (Provision of Meters). A council report said the proposed amendments were advertised for objection in the Morning Bulletin on Thursday, April 20, 1989 and at the closure of the objection period, no objection had been lodged. Councillors said they had received numerous phone calls abou' - new amendments to the keeping of dogs some of the changes had been published last week in the Capricorn Coast Mirror. The bulk of the inquirieswere about the section dealing with the control of dogs: 9( a )( i) No person shall keep a dog on any premises in a township unless there exists upon such prem-

AN application for an entertainment licence to operate a boat and equipment hire service by off Great Keppel Island was refused at Livingstone Shire Council's June meeting. Evan Jeffries applied to operate hire dinghys, sailing boats, fishing lines, snorkel gear and surf skis. He said in his application that he would be transporting the equipment to and from Fisherman's Beach, Great Keppel Island on a 40' vessel which would be anchored and sitting on the sand at low tide. Council felt there was too much congestion on the beach at Great Keppel

LIVINGSTONE Shire Council approved emergent expenditure at the June meeting for S182,348.21. It covered advertising, bank charges, civic receptions and entertainment, conferences and deputations, maintenance of office equipment, telephone/communications, sundries general administration), sick leave and public holidays, local government superannuation board, wet weather, depot expenses and maintenance, fire levy pension rebate, expenses, transport expenses, building expenses, covering dumps outside cleansing area, fees and charges, salaries, other town planning, fees and charges, donation, expenses, memorials, private works - other, small plant - sale/purchase, books purchased, plant - sale/purchase, maintenance, branch roads-vehicle entrances, new services - connect/inspect fees, upgrading sewerage treatment plant, telephones, pumping - power, treatment, new services/connection fees, distribution main, new services/connection fees.

Cr .Lloyd Webber asked if the section was normal and did the people have to build a fence around their properties. "I've had complaints from pensioners and there's no way in the world they can afford to fence their property," he said. "And I agree with them." Shire clerk Jim Brown said it wasn't the intention of council to a have a "D-Day where everyone would be told to fence their yards wholly or in part". Mr Brown said it would depend on council. "I envisaged there would be certain circum= stances where it would be required. "I don't think it ever was the intention of this table that everyone would be told to fence their place," he said. Cr Webber said if that was the case he would like a press statement issued explaining that section. Chairman Cr John Bowen said it would probably be better to issue a policy statement for next month's meeting. He suggested Cr Webber confer with the shire clerk before the July meeting. "Come up with a policy statement on the actual implementation regarding the whole of this dog control to let the people know," Cr Bowen said.

Mrs Bailey called on the community to donate wool for the knee rugs, beanies and bed sox through Suzy' s Capricorn Coastline page ... and the volunteers did the rest. The rugs are works of art in an array of colours that will give patients a lift. A collection started four weeks ago for a video for the home and $331 was in the kitty before the Show ... and sales of hand-made goods, and donations, piled up so fast a colour television may be included with the video. Despite the apparent success, Mrs Bailey said the nursing home still needed help from volunteers with more items to be provided. She said age was no barrier to giving help ... and beautiful work donated by 84-year-old Marj Jewell was proof._

LABOR Broadsound candidate Jim Pearce has come out in support of Kinka Beach residents and their concerns for the damage to Scenic Loop Road between Kinka quarry and Rosslyn Bay. Mr Pearce said it was apparent the consistent movement of heavy laden trucks along the seven kilometre stretch of road was doing irreparable damage. "I travelled the road several times last weekend and I am convinced by the time the marina is completed therewill be a need to reconstruct that section of road," Mr Pearce said. "The road was not constructed to carry a sustained movement of heavy transport. "I call on the local member to acknowledge the damage to the road and declare what the State Government will do to ensure that the road will be reconstructed and who will pay for it," he said. "An immediate and adequate contribution by the State Government is urgently required for reconstruction and not for band-aid repairs." Mr Pearce said Kinka Beach residents had adopted a responsible attitude amlwere not against the marina development. "They are concerned the Scenic Loop Road wouldbe left uneven and full of holes. Livingstone Shire Council is unable to fund such a major reconstruction," he said. "The State Government has supported the Keppel Corporation to the tune of S4.6 million. They must be prepared to support local residents in their attempts to have the road restored for safe everyday use," Mr Pearce said. "Kinka Beach residents have a genuine concern and if need be I will support them all the way. "Big developers move in, knock down, dig up and build for huge profits - then move out, leaving the local population to adjust to damaged roads and destroyed environments."

Pavilions pride of Show - MLA

NEW showground pavilions costing 5115,000, with a State Government subsidy of $45,000, were the pride of Yeppoon Show, Member for Broadsound and show patron Denis Hinton said this week. At the show's official opening on Saturday Mr Hinton praised the show society committee. "The committee, led by Cr Brian Dorey, showed great enthusiasm, energy and forward thinking attitudes, which resulted in the best ever Yeppoon Show," Mr Hinton said. "The new pavilions considerably enhanced the presentation of exhibits and provided warm, pleasant, cafeteria and facilities." Mr Hinton paid tribute to the 'Men of the RSL' led by showground supervisor Bruce Barnett - Aub Condon, Bill Freeman, Stan Kent and David Howe - who provided the labour force at no cost to the society. "They physically constructed the buildings. Their efforts saved the society thousands of dollars and made even more valuable the State Government subsidy."

May payments

PAYMENTS to councillors in May: chairman Cr John Bowen $2591; Crs McDonald 5515; Webber S105; Dorey 5689.50; Dowie S820; Prior 5460; Wall 5973; Webb S555; Cogill S1070; Landsberg $861; Smith 51083; Hinz $712; Mather $501. The 1989/90 budget for payments to councillors is $84,960 and as at the end of May there was a surplus of $13,000.

KEPPEL Coast Girl Guides Local Association requested reimbursement of SIO paid to council for use of electricity at Beaman Park for the Hobby Horse Derby and for S53 reimbursement for building fees at Livingstone Shire's June meeting. Councillors decided to reimburse the $10. The S53 building fee reimbursement was refused. The association was given a donation amounting to S153 towards rates paid on the premises in question for the current financial year. This represented a refund of 100 per cent of general rates. "Requests of this nature are continually being received by council and it is becoming more difficult to accommodate these requests if council is to main the budget's integrity," Mr, Murphy's report said. Councillors asked that a letter outlining why it couldn't reimburse the association its building fee be sent explaining the reasons.

$1.4m. permits TWENTY-TWO building permits for new dwellings valued at S1,393,250 were issued in May by Livingstone Shire Council. Thirty approvals for additions, etc were issued, valued at S316,223.

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. Rock along with ESQUIRE ... live in the Lounge!

Shell club meet despite the wet EXTREMELY wet conditions did not deter Keppel Bay Shell Club members having an enjoyable meeting last week. Ambulance officer Wayne Prowse gave an informative talk, with slides, on the varieties of venomous jellyfish and the treatment of their stings. Shirtbox displays were cone shells, among which were very poisonous varieties. The lucky new member for the month was from Bathurst, NSW. All present wished Nancy Plumb a. speedy recovery from her recent operation. The club's publication, Tidings, was distributed to all members present, who also helped to prepare copies to be posted to many interstate and overseas members. The competition was won by Arthur Prowse. Ten club members, as well as more than 40 tourist operators and conservationists attended the Conservation of Parks and Wildlife workshop, held at the Bayview Tower from May 29 to 31. All aspects of their work was explained and information and advice was given when requested. Quite a lot of audience involvement was encouraged and some excellent suggestions were put forward. Keppel Bay Shell Club members had a display of locally-collected cone shells as well as an aquarium containing some living shells.

"Members ate always seen at local functions where help is needed. Over the past years many thousands of posies have been given out on Mother's Day.

Cinema halving Tuesday prices FROM this Tuesday Yeppoon's Cinemax Theatre starts a trial testing of half normal admission prices for Tuesday evenings. The half price idea originated in capital cities where normal admission tickets cost 59.50 each. "Admission prices at Yeppoon have been 56.50 with other concessions available," proprietor Kevin Baglow said. "If the Tuesday specials prove popular, I can't see any reason why they won't continue." Mr Baglow said his theatre would be showing The Third Wave, a dramatic educational film on AIDS, to Coast school children on Thursday, July 6 over three sessions. "It will be the first time The Third Wave will be screened in Queensland. It was made by the Port Macquarie anti-AIDS action group as an

initiative of the Port Macquarie Ministers' Fraternal." Mr Baglow will contact all Coast primary and high schools to organise party bookings. The 45 minute programme starts at 9am, 1 lam and 1pm and admission is 52.50. He hopes parents will back the schools in ensuring every Coast student has the chance to see the film.

Camel beach ban LIVINGSTONE Shire Council refused permission at the June meeting for John Richardson to conduct daily camel rides on Yeppoon's Main Beach in the area of the hospital. Permission was refused because council has a by-law restricting animals on beaches, parks and foreshores. Cr Maurie Webb suggested that Appleton Park or Yeppoon Showground could be used instead. Council decided to contact Mr Richardson and notify him of an area that could be used after discussions with the health department and town planner.

Sister shire idea A REPORT from the Livingstone Shire Council tourism and development steering committee recommended to have a sister shire relationship with Longreach. The committee thought that because CTDO representatives had recently conducted a well publicised trip to Longreach an appropriate way to launch the sister shire relationship would be to invite Longreach representatives to the Coast. Representatives could include councillors, personnel from the Stockman's Hall of Fame and motel staff. While on the Coast, the representatives could be shown the area's attractions - a day on Great Keppel Island, a golf day at Capricorn Iwasaki Resort, a trip to the reef and other attractions. The committee though a weekend in late July or early August would be appropriate. While here a formal presentation of a sister shire certificate would be the highlight of the visit.

Push for coaches LIVINGSTONE Shire Council's tourism and development committee will ask Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton for assistance so McCafferty's Coach Services will be able to start twice daily coach services to and from Yeppoon. Committee chairman Cr Mike Prior will ask Mr Hinton to seek Transport Minister Peter McKechnie's support in permitting McCafferty's expansion into Yeppoon on a competitive basis. Crs Ellen Cogill and John Smith asked Cr Prior to include a regular service through Marlborough. "The service we want is both north and south with the bus stopping at the Marlborough Shell Service Station," they said.

In the section concerning hall charges, after `Pensioner Club Meetings', council has included the words 'and Registered Charitable Organisations'. The charges will now be S26 nett to pensioner club meetings and registered charitable organisations.

NINETY-NINE 'notices to clear' were issued in May to landowners with overgrown allotments by Livingstone Shire Council. An abandoned vehicle was removed from Queen Street, Yeppoon to council's depot. Several complaints were received concerning vehicles and noise resulting from quarrying at Kinka. Those involving council by-laws have, in the main, been successfully resolved. Three dogs were impounded from beaches and six from other places. There are 911 registered dogs as at May 31, 1989.

The club was invited to take part in a challenge game against the Moura Rangers ... a bus was hired and 43 selected players were accompanied by coaches, team managers and parents. On arrival, as a curtain raiser, a reserve combination team was fielded and Yeppoon United won 4-0. The main game that evening provoked laughter and amusement as parents, coaches and team managers took to the field. Yeppoon United 'old crocks' were successful and won 10 ... with aching muscles next morning. The game was followed a barbecue and warm hospitality. There was an early start on Sunday when the Coast guests had a tour of the coal mine. It was followed by the three representative team games. Yeppoon's tangerine and black colours were apparent as the under 9s and lOs won their respective games 2-0. The under 12s were also victorious and won 3-1. Much interest has been stirred in soccer this season and the scores reflect the high standard the Coast soccer has achieved. A return match is planned for early August.

THE district singles final at Yeppoon Bowls Club was a fizzer. Ray Campbell completely outclassed Peter Brown and many members arrived to see the finish missed out because it was over before they arrived. It took Ray only six ends to score 12 with Peter not on the board. Ray increased his lead to win 25 8. In the A singles Peter was back to his old self and kept Tony Ryan on three for 10 ends while he scored 18. Peter eventually won 25 13. In the B grade Mark Gustafson scored an easy 25 10 win at the expense of Frazer Freeman. Tony Ryan lined up again in the C singles but he let George Cavanagh score 22 before he got going. He kept George on 24 for eight ends but had given away too much start going down 25 18. Mark Gustafson recorded his second win when he defeated Warren Royal 25 2. Norm Richards and Arnold Halfpenny played the most ends in their game with Norm finishing in front 25 16. In the pairs Frank O'Brien and Tom Roos had things pretty much their own way defeating Mo Stewart and Harry Maher 32 7.

A six and a four helped John Shepherd, Gordon MacKenzie, Don McPherson and Frank Birkett home against Harold Crooks, Laurie Collins, Graham McCosker and Bill Manthey 26 17. The mixed fours proved to be a cliff hanger. Mo Stewart and company got away to a good start and led 14 2 after eight ends. Bill Manthey levelled 15 all and led 26 21 with two to play. He then dropped a five to make the scores level and scored a single to win. Clarry Hinton, Eleanor Batts and May and Bill Manthey, 27, defeated Dot and Harry Maher and Mad and Mo Stewart, 26.

Les Taylor challenged Arnold Halfpenny for the Cock of the Walk but Arnold retained the title ... 8 3. Saturday is Keith Wright's trophy day so nominate early.

Highs and lows in mini-rugby CAPCOAST'S mini rugby union players experienced the highs and lows of competitive rugby in recent weeks when they took on topof-the-table teams Mt Morgan and Pioneers. Pioneers under 8 side was stunned by the improving Coast combination when the side was defeated 12 points to eight. Capcoast tryscorers were Nicholas Craig, Sam Bongers and Brett Cranny. Brett's try broke the eight-all deadlock in the dying minutes. Last weekend Capcoast went down to Mt Morgan but only after playing with commitment throughout. Boey Martin had his best game to date and Terrence Toon was spectacular in defence. The mini rugby competition is in recess during school holidays. After the holidays the under-8 side is looking forward to finishing in the top four of the six team competition.

Yeppoon ladies bowls draw for competitions

Junior Swans tried hard but no match for tall, strong EP team EMU Park proved its superior strength in the under 11 Aussie Rules game against Yeppoon Swans at St Brendan's oval on Sunday. Although Swans tried hard, its much smaller and inexperienced side was no match for the taller and stronger Emu Park team. Swan ruckman Nathan Hirning and winger John Lawton continually broke the centre but were unable to break through the stronger Emu Park backline. Ben Sheppard and Owen Battersby in the backline continually 'fought hard but Park's forward line broke through with the final score Emu Park 12-4-74, Yeppoon 0-2-2. Best players, John Lawton, Nathan Hirning and new player Damien Cervai in the forwards. The match of the day was between Yeppoon and St Brendan's under 13s. The last time the two sides met, St Brendans was victorious by one point giving Yeppoon its only defeat for the season and the Swans were keen to settle the score. From the first bounce it looked as if would it be a hard fought game with St Brendans quickly getting the ball away leaving Swans flatfooted. Umpire Shane Steele had his work cut out with much scrabbly play and the ball moved all over the oval. At the end of the first quarter St Brendans was ahead by one goal. Swans coach Dale Wetzler

Hen of the walk keeps her title SINGING SHIP Indoor Bowling Club member Bev Farrow again defended her hen of the walk title when she defeated Avis Mallory. Bev has been playing consistent bowls in this competition. In the cock of the walk, Jack Thomasson was defeated by John Smith. Last week Singing Ship visited Morrison Park for a morning of social bowls. "It is always a pleasure to visit this club. While some of our bowlers wondered how they could conquer one of the mats, a resident said: 'Don't worry. It is just a fun morning,' and it certainly was," the Emu Park club's publicity officer said. There was some good bowling with plenty of laughs and everyone had a great time.

gave his boys a dressing down and a new Swans team hit the field. The boys scored heavily in the second quarter, with only inaccurate kicking keeping the scores looking reasonable against no score for St Brendans. After half time the St Brendans boys seemed to drop their bundle and Swans started an onslaught for the goals. Quiet achiever David Lawton managed two goals and five points with help from Bradley Hirning, Shane Campbell and great ruck work from Doug Edwards and Shannon Jamieson. The final score proved Swans need some kicking practise ... Yeppoon 9-17-71, St Brendans 2-4-16. Best players: Bradley Hirning, Shane Campbell, Hayden Steele and Peter Dean.

3 favourites home first to give punters a top day WINS by three of the four favourites at Tyrer Park gave punters the best of the encounter with bookmakers on Wednesday afternoon at the Club Hotel-sponsored race meeting. Punters started off on the right foot when partly Coast-owned Parafan just lasted to hold off the fast-finishing Black Connection in the Raglan Tavern Restricted Handicap (1440m). Parafan, which was backed in from 5-2 to 6-4 gave the two premiership leaders, trainer Lyle Rowe and jockey John Stephens, yet another success in a prolific season. Rowe and Stephens combined again to complete a double when stable newcomer King's Love scored the easiest win of the afternoon by beating Young Pandour by three lengths in the Edie Dotti Purse Handicap (1000m.). Early betting saw King's Love, which had previously raced in the Brisbane area, open at 3son but her quote blew out to even money before starting at 6-4 on when the connections of the runners-up backed their horse in from 4s to 2s. The third favourite to win was the Caloundra visitor Just Lace which opened his winning account in the Roy Hollingsworth Maiden Handicap (1200m.). Just Lace, which started at 6-4, was ridden by Rockhampton jockey Mark Unwin. This win compensated the connections for a narrow loss in the opening event with Black Connection. Silk Route, which is trained by former Rockhampton trainer Trevor Fay, who now enjoys his share of success at the Gold Coast, won the Club Hotel Park Stakes (1200m.) from the even money favourite Fiery Niebo. Silk Route will remain at Yeppoon to contest the Restricted Park Stakes to be run at the Yeppoon Amateur Race Club's final race meeting for the 1988/89 racing season next Wednesday. Nominations for this meeting have exceeded all expectations with more than 40 horses entered for the four-race programme. Acceptances for this meeting will be declared at the Rockhampton Jockey Club at 10am on Monday.

WAY back in August, 1983, when Suzy and "Old Baldy" were preparing copy for the first issue of the Capricorn Coast Mirror there were two clients vying to be the first advertisers. Bev and Frank Green of Greens Hardware at Emu Park knew about the Mirror before it started and booked the first advertisement ... Barry Cross and Terry and Joan Noud of the Sunflower Patch booked the first advertisement in Yeppoon and received invoice number 1. Now, 305 issues later, it's sad to relate that the Sunflower Patch has gone to Vegetarian Heaven after opening in M arch, 1983, with Barry, Terry and Joan at the helm. It leaves behind thousands of memories of Lentil Burgers, Pita Bread, Chili Beans in tacos and bowls, Tabouli, fresh fruit juice and those unreal smoothies. Barry is the one most identified with the Patch ... anyone who ever called in Monday morning for breakfast only had to take one look at Barry to realise health food had a lot going for it! He was the life and soul of the place. Barry thoroughly enjoyed baiting "OB" ... he always served that dandelion tea or some concoction that looked like it had been hit by a Victa on Sunday afternoon and de- lighted in telling "OB" it was good for him. In the end, he put in a packet of Bushells Tea but "OB" still reckoned it came from under a Victa. The Sunflower Patch had its regulars and was a great meeting place ... but running a business these days is tough enough without the long hours taking their toll and bringing about ill health. The three partners have had their share of health problems and, in the end, something had to go. Terry and Joan Noud are continuing in Shavers Beach Shack but Barry has decided to call it a day. He's going to take a break then look for a job. B any, if you ever want a cup of tea just drop in to the Mirror office. "OB" reckons there's some stuff growing near the road out the front that would make a terrific cuppa ... he just wants the right person to test it!!! ••• THIS week, while the ABC was fighting to screen the Police State docu-drama about the Fitzgerald Inquiry and the Queen's Birthday Honours List came out without a single (or married) policeman among recipients, Betty Chapman of Park Street, Yeppoon, was going to do some sewing. It was 9 o'clock on that chilly Tuesday night when she opened the drawer on her sewing cabinet, rummaged around looking for her un-picker ... and a "huge brown snake" greeted Betty with forked tongue waving. The first reaction was to slam the drawer, which put the snake out of sight ... but a sight like that is never out of mind. So, with no-one else to turn to, she rang Yeppoon Police. In her words: "Out came a very tall, very big and very dependable policeman". He opened the drawer, rummaged around ... but no snake. He pulled out the drawer and looked elsewhere in the cabinet ... no snake. Further inquiries, deeper in the cabinet, revealed the snake had retreated to the rear. The snake was collared, placed in a pillow case and sentenced to (wait for it) Life! The policeman took the snake away with him and set it free at Bungandarra. Betty Chapman felt it was time someone sent a bouquet to the police and this officer's actions made her a fan for life!!! ••• IN true police tradition where no case is closed until the paperwork's finished, the Mirror phoned Yeppoon Police to find out who was the brave boy in blue who rescued the damsel from the slippery snake ... "Who was the 'very tall, very big and very dependable' policeman? was the question posed. An anonymous voice at the end of the phone replied: "It was Constable Murray Shields ... and the lady left out that he's also very handsome"!!! •

FURTHER to this column's recent paragraph about the honest person who handed in Alan Stevenson's wallet at Angliss Savemore ... Honest John Thompson, the suave butcher, cannot tell a lie: "Twas I," said he this week! ••• SEEN, and overheard, at Yeppoon Show ... a bloke is wearing a colourful sweatband around his forehead and another bloke says to wife: "Must be covering his circumcision scar"!!! ‘N•
