Hands-on experience at Cooberrie Park St Ursula' s grade 10 work experience student Heidi Millington of Lammermoor Beach chose to work this week at Cooberrie Park animal sanctuary to get handson experience with animals. She could not have been luckier ... the sanctuary took delivery of "Three-anda-bit" koalas on Friday from Hamilton Island. Heidi is one of the few people who will be lucky enough to get hands-on experience with the koalas because the stress of human contact can cause health problems. But Willie the koala is accustomed to humans ... and obviously loves posing for the camera.

AN AWKWARD situation is developing over noise associated with rock hauling and other activities involving the Keppel Gateway marina at Rosslyn Bay. On the one hand, Kinka Beach residents, supported by Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton, have called for a 12-hour day (7am to 7pm) while Leightons, the marina contractor, has given a guarantee that it will work only 12-and-a-half hours (6.30arn to 7pm). Neither side seemed prepared to concede the 30 minute difference on Wednesday night. The matter blew up on Friday night when Kinka Beach residents' spokesman Kevin Logan, fed up with the "sound of one metre rocks dropping three metres onto a four metre xylophone" called police and asked for an officer to make work stop at the quarry. He was complaining that the noise was continuing until 9pm. His request was not successful that night but a string of subsequent calls to Livingstone Shire Council, the Main Roads Department and the Harbours and Marine Department wound up getting action. In a message to Mr Hinton sent on Tuesday • CONTINUED ON PAGE 2

Cooberrie Park back in koala business COOBERRIE PARK animal sanctuary is back in the koala business with "three-and-a-bit" koalas from Hamilton Island. Sanctuary owners John and Pattie Shannon said there was no leading attraction with koalas ... all "three-and-a-bit" of them become stars in their own right. But Willie, the four year old male, is the one the public will meet at first because he's the oldest and most accustomed to being handled by people. Willie is also a father ... and that's where the "bit" comes in. Pattie Shannon said they were told they were getting three koalas but it was possible one of the females had a joey. They were right! Gumdrop, the two-year-old female, which, by the way, is also accustomed to being handled by the public, turns out to be fully engaged rearing a yet-to-be-named joey believed to be not more than two months old. There's a third koala, now known as Cooee, about three years old. Cooee is a female that is not

used to being handled and will take a while to get used to her new surroundings. So, with the "three-and-a-bit" koalas now living in luxury at Cooberrie Park's Koala House, the Capricorn Coast public is in for a treat. Cooberrie Park was famous for its koalas until January last year when more than a dozen were packed up and taken to their new home at Dreamworld. John and Pattie Shannon bought a koala-less Cooberrie Park on Queensland Day (June 6), last year and set about rebuilding what had been one of Queensland's best animal sanctuaries. They bought 5ha of rolling park with luscious green grass that feeds 16 red kangaroos, 12 eastern grey roos, six wallaroos, plus a few wallabies of the black stripe, agile, swamp and other "assorted varieties". In addition there was Petunia the wombat, two dingoes, (one about to give birth), two adult and three young emus (hatched September last year), three deer, carpet snakes that can be touched

through the wire, a wide variety of assorted Australian birds, rabbits and guinea pigs, donkeys and goats and hundreds of ducks. Most of the animals can be hand-fed, which makes for an exciting day for families ... and a great opportunity to collect photos for the family album. Now that the koalas are back, Cooberrie Park will once again become one of Central Queensland's top tourist spots. It never lost its place as a top attraction but the koalas will provide the star quality that an animal sanctuary needs. Japanese consider a trip to Australia is not complete until they have seen, handled and been photographed with a koala. But the kangaroos, which have been the sanctuary's mainstay for the past 12 months, will still be the stars as far as Europeans are concerned. Pattie Shannon said this week Germans, in particular, mainly wanted to see a kangaroo with a joey in its pouch. The highlight for them was to

see, and photograph, the joey poking out its head. Australians, meanwhile, want to see the lot. "Children love the kangaroos because they can feed and play with them," Mrs Shannon said. "One of the strangest things is to see people from out west, who are probably plagued with `roos on their properties, spend most of their time with the `roos at Cooberrie Park. "Maybe they like the idea of seeing tame ones they can feed." Cooberrie Park has given Hamilton I stand resort a promise that none of the koalas will be cuddled by the public unless one of them shows a particular aptitude for it. "Cuddling creates great stress for koalas, particularly when they are settling in to anew home," Mrs Shannon said. "We will be bringing them out for viewing times each day and they will be placed on a stump where children and adults can stroke them and be photographed with them."

• CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 morning, Mr Logan had said he felt work should not start until 7am and should finish at 7pm ... "12 hours should be enough for us to put up with," he said. Mr Hinton took up the matter with the Harbours and Marine Department and apparently, after to-ing and fro-ing, Leightons, the contractors in charge of the marina project gave a guarantee that no work would start before 6.30am and would definitely cease at 7pm. But in a Press release issued on Wednesday, Mr Hinton said "after conferring with residents, I

am not satisfied with these arrangements and consider 12 hours' cartage between 7am and 7pm to be a reasonable thing". In his release Mr Hinton said there would be no blasting at Kinka quarry after 5pm and the grizzly rock break-up machine would stop work at 7pm. He said he had received an assurance from the Harbours and Marine Department, which owns the quarry. "The department has received assurances from Leightons and will follow up with enforced regulations if the assurances are not honoured," he said. A meeting to discuss the new times is set down for 10am Monday at the Livingstone Shire Council chambers. Leightons' representative Jason Malouf, Keppel Gateway's John Davies, Mr Logan, shire chairman Cr John Bowen and council officers will meet over the times. There are two sides with the 30-minute difference appearing to be not negotiable. Leightons, however, started working a 6.30am to 7pm day this week and expect that by Monday, when the meeting is held, residents will concede that there is nothing to worry about in the 30 minute earlier start. Mr Logan was asked on Wednesday night was he prepared to concede Leightons the 6.30am start but he said that would mean trucks would start arriving at the quarry at 6am to be loaded. "Even a 7am start means the trucks will start banging down the road at 6.30am," he said. While Mr Logan was being interviewed, Leightons' construction manager Tim Green phoned from Brisbane to stress that a 6.30am start was critical to the marina construction. He said the 6.30am start was necessary for the trucks hauling rock to the marina. Trucks had to stop work each day around 5pm which meant noise from rock haulage occurred for 10 hours a day, with a maximum of 10-and-a-half hours. Operations at the quarry would not start until 7am and would definitely stop at 7pm. Mr Green said Leightons would ensure there was "no creeping effect" with trucks. He described the "creeping effect" as trucks arriving earlier than 6.30am to get their loads. There were 20 trucks involved in rock cartage and it was impossible to load them simultaneously. "The first truck may well start moving along the Scenic Highway at 6.20am but it will not be loaded until 6.30am," Mr Green said. "There will be a trickle effect around 6.30am where only those trucks that can be loaded after 6.30am will be loaded and will set off to the harbour. "The operation will not be in full swing before 7am." Mr Green said cutting operations down to a 7am start would prolong the job, meaning the noise and other problems would last longer. (Keppel Gateway project manager John Davies, answering a question at the Capricorn Coast Chamber of Commerce and Industry meeting on Tuesday night, said rock hauling would continue until October ... and probably the end of October.) Mr Green said, that time limit was based on a 630am start. It was suggested that Leightons might be able to work a 12-hour day if they engaged more trucks, Mr Green said the company had been trying to find more trucks for the past two to three months and had been unsuccessful. "We have a battle to keep the trucks that are

If you're shopping for a large, family washing machine, don't be discounted down to something with probably less than half the life of a Kleenmaid. Any other large washing machines that are under $1000, have a one year warranty. After that, you're on your own. But with a Kleenmaid, you get exactly the same commercial grade machine that's been designed and built for at least 5 years hard use in a laundromat.

THE Keppel Corporation Group has further expanded its leisure division by purchasing a share of a car rental company. Hertz Central Queensland managing director Chris Cameron said he and his wife, Iris, had entered into a joint venture with Keppel Corporation along with Dr Tom Murphy of Longreach to take over the Hertz International franchise for the region. "Hertz is one of the 'big three' car rental companies in the region covering an area between Mackay, Longreach, Moura, Biloela and Gladstone," Mr Cameron said. "We have formed this association because we have similar business objectives to Keppel and because the group's industries complement the rental car industry. "Our first aim with Keppel Corporation as part owners, is to upgrade the image of the business and then to embark on new business developments." Keppel Corporation Group chairman Richard Wilson said the car rental company fitted into the group's investment strategy.



already there," he said. "We could use three or four more trucks but that would be the limit." Further trucks would be of no help because the marina walls had extended so far into the harbour that there would be a bank-up of trucks when unloading. Mr Green said Leightons was working in conjunction with the Department of Harbours and Marine and was not outside of any regulations. He suggested Mr Hinton be contacted to clarify his Press release because information he had from the department allowed his company to operate from 6.30am to 7pm. Mr Hinton, when contacted at Parliament House, was asked whether he wished to reconsider his Press release. He said he had asked the department to fix the working hours from 7am to 7pm. He was waiting on an answer from an official who could not be contacted until Friday (today). "I'm standing by my Press statement," he said.

$9000 grant for hall grounds YEPPOON State High School Parents and Citizens Association has been assisted with grant up to 59,000 for upgrading the new assembly hall's grounds. Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton has obtained approval from Works Minister Bill Gunn for the funds to be spent on landscaping between the new building and the school fence. "I hope, with parents and citizens association approval, to have the landscaping completed in time for the building's official opening on July 29. Works Department officers, Mr Hinton and association representative Bob Howie have discussed the programme, plans have been completed and tenders are being called this week. A new school fence will be erected in front of the building with an additional entrance in front of the hall to cater for parking in Maple and Melbourne Streets. Mr Hinton said the malti-purpose building, constructed at a cost of about 5400,000, using S223,000 provided by t;:e State Governn-,ent, was constructed by A.-:drews Construc ,ons and is the largest public building in Yeppoon. The building has an o.ympic-size baskc,6all court, utilised by the a tricorn Coast Basketball Association and has full stage facilities. The building will be officially opened on Saturday, July 29 by Health Minister Ivan Gibbs, who was formerly Works Minister.

MLA: $500,000 allocated for Byfield roads HALF a million dollars has been obtained by Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton to upgrade and seal Byfield Road within the Byfield township. Mr Hinton said he had sought the funds following representations from Byfield residents. "They were concerned about the roughness of the road and dust problems within the closely settled area between Byfield Creek, south of Byfield and Polka Creek to the north of Byfield," Mr Hinton said. "There is a considerable amount of traffic within this section, particularly servicing the Byfield State School and Byfield Store "I will consult with Byfield community groups, including the parents and citizens association, historical society, fruitgrowers, Main Roads Department and Livingstone Shire Council as to what priorities the residents have on the road and how best we can utilise the funds available." Mr Hinton said the upgrading of the Byfield Road is a major priority in the Broadsound electorate. "I presently have the road straightening project in the Farnborough State School under construction at a cost of S250,000. "It is a job that has received priority because of the danger to school children caused by the sharp curve adjacent to the school," he said. The next priority is within the town of Byfield, where the 5500,000 can be expended as soon as planning and specification is complete. The works will be undertaken by council day labour gangs.

Jim Pearce ALP candidate for Broadsound The ONLY change for the Better MOMENTOUS as the Fitzgerald Inquiry has been, we should now look to the future for reform of the sad, the sorry and greedy state of government in Queensland. The National Party Government has, in the past, displayed a willingness, an ability to force draconian legislation through the Parliament, at short notice and often in the most clandestine circumstances. The action this week to limit parliamentary debate and dispose of an Independent Speaker is cowardly and contemptible. The Queensland Parliament is the people's forum. To shut down Parliament at this time is reprehensible. Last week I stated that Electoral Reform is critically important to a restoration of a semblance of democracy in Queensland. Ken Wiltshire, Professor of Politics at Queensland University, has described the 1985 gerrymander as 'the most criminal act every perpetrated in politics'. It would be criminal of the Premier and the National Party to call an election on the current boundaries without a fair and independent boundary redistribution. All fair minded Queenslanders are now waiting on the National Party to change its ways. Authorised: Richard W,ticemcz. 19 Brock Cres. Dysart

Potters' open day success BEACH Potters open day on Sunday at their Tanby Road workshop was successful. A good crowd of visitors took the advantage to choose and watch their choice of pot fired in the Raku kiln and also to have a turn on the potters wheel. At the recent monthly meeting a decision was made to make workshop day on Mondays, an open house from 9am to noon to give people the opportunity to buy pottery direct from the premises. It is envisaged that in the future, open weekends may be possible so tourists or day trippers may call in to browse or purchase pots. Pottery is a relatively low cost hobby with membership fees S20 per year. Anyone interested in pottery is invited to visit the club on Tanby Road any Monday morning where they can be assured of a welcome. Further information can be obtained from Janet Edwards, 39 2187.

ON Sunday Mum and Dad took me to Ross Creek so I could go fishing. When the tide started to go out lots of oil and plastic bottles and bags and glass bottles and petrol came floating out of the creek on top of the water. Don't big people know that they are polluting the water and if they don't stop, theywill kill the fish and the pollution is going to go out to the ocean. It might kill the whales and dolphins and the fish that the boat owners catch. Ross Creek is my favourite fishing spot because I am only eight years old and it is a safe fishing spot for me to fish. If they keep on doing it the fish won't come anymore and I won't have anywhere to fish.

The creek is getting more polluted every time Mum takes me down there. The people should be more careful when they fill up the motors on their boats and everyone should take home their rubbish and put it in their own bin. - Benjamin Newmann, Mary St, Yeppoon.

PresS power not deteriorated I AM glad to see the power of the press has not deteriorated. Three days after my letter appeared in your paper a Livingstone councillor inspected our road, measured it and had it very roughly graded. I appreciate having Cr Dorey answer my letter but I think there a few things he did not inform your readers: 1 The water supply for Yeppoon runs along Limestone Creek Road and during the past two years, owing to considerable upgrading and repairs to this pipeline, our road has been damaged by large trucks and machinery doing this work. No grants by council was mentioned in Cr Dorey's figures. 2 I have been informed that a few years ago large sums of money were paid to council by property owners when their land was broken up on this road. No knowledge of this money being spent on the road is recorded. 3 I see by Cr Dorey's costings that about SI14,00 has been spent on this road in the past four years, if this is a fact. "I know where our money goes". We have had half a kilometres of bitumen surface, six gradings and most of the fill for the bitumen was supplied by the Main Roads for little cost. "Expensive I think". - Stan Thorne, Limestone Creek Road.

Can't agree with writer I CANNOT agree with J Edwards (CCM 23/ 6/89) views on the treatment of prisoners and her call 'Let's get back to basics; the whip; stocks; hard, hard labour; capital punishment and castration". Nor can I accept her assertion that there is too much concern about death by suicide in custody. She writes: 'We are a normal people' and 'let's take a good stand'. Wherever there is a concept of normalcy there must always be an accompanying notion of deviance or anti-social behaviour. Our world, our human nature, our political, legal and corrective systems are not perfect. We should strive to improve each of them. I believe none of these institutions will be enhanced by a return to the primitive measures J Edwards advocates. There is no compelling evidence to suggest, in the case of capital punishment, that the taking of a life as a punishment for the taking or violation of life is either a deterrent or a practise which dignifies any society. We should respect life and guard against attacks upon it in all its forms, from the unborn child through to the frail, and as some would suggest, burdensome (euthanasia). I appreciate that the arguments for and against harsh measures and capital punishment will persist. People of goodwill on both

sides of the argument should be mindful of the t _ dignity of all human life and the inherent moral limits on every use of force. I believe Mrs Edwards is a person of goodwill and, in disagreeing with her views, I have not offered a solution to her perception of the problem of crime in society, other than agree that, yes, we must all be concerned. Violent crime is just one aspect of a troubled society. While no less concerned for the victims of violence I somehow feel that there are more victims of a disordered society concentrated within prison than elsewhere. In 'going along' with a world which lacks reason, tenderness and compassion we may unwittingly promote violence. - David Timbs, 6 Seahorse Crescent, Lammermoor Beach

Coast trip won't show damage TO the conservationists, Yeppoon. I feel I should write a few lines about the Reefseeker trip up the coast. That will be a very pleasant trip for people who have not been there. But as far as showing what damage the sandmining will do, it's rot. The mining area is not near the beach or in sight of the boat. Two companies tested that area for the mineral, they got great results. I had a tractor clearing their lines and roads. It is large hills of just sand, stunted timber, useless grass and the only living thing may be a goanna. It is better then mining our beaches and islands. Would be worth a fortune to our State. - C Hooper; Bangalee.

St Vincent de Paul, council, govt provide crisis housing ' YEPPOON St Vincent de Paul and Livingstone Shire Council have worked in conjunction with the State Housing Commission to provide three crisis houses in Whitman Street, Yeppoon. Crisis housing is for people in urgent need of accommodation. Residents are granted six weeks occupancy which, under special circumstances, may be extended at the society's discretion. The houses are owned by the housing commission, administered by Livingstone Shire Council and residents in need are accommodated by St Vincent de Paul. Yeppoon Lions and Rotary clubs have contributed cash towards purchase of refrigerators, washing machines, H W Findlay and Co's Betta Store contributed with discounted wares and the general public has donated furniture and other items. St Vincent de Paul members will see to the need of occupants. Capricorn Coast Catholic Parish priest Father Noel Milner blessed the houses in a private ceremony on Monday, July 3 in company with society members. One house has already been occupied by a family for a week when they were able to move into more permanent accommodation. St Vincent de Paul Society extends sincere thanks to all who contributed in any way to preparing these houses for use ... a display of community cooperation typical of Capricorn Coast residents.

CAPRICORN Coast TAFE Centre is looking for the 24 people who wanted to study Japan and its culture part-time and four fulltime students ... as well as anybody else. Results from the survey completed by Coast residents give the following figures for Japanese language and culture: 24 people wanted to start immediate part-time study; four wanted immediate full-time study; 54 people wanted to do part-time and 14 full-time in 1990. Because of the interest shown the Coast TAFE Centre arranged for Coast resident Jeffrey Squires to co-ordinate Asian studies. "We have set up an Asian studies section for the Capricorn Coast TAFE Centre," officer in charge Morris Jones said. "The new programmes are a first for Queensland and have provided the opportunity for Coast people to know more about Japanese culture and language for residents. business people and the hospitality industry." The Coast people who said they wanted to do the courses, either part or full time, haven't

enrolled. On Friday, JO, 21, .t one year part-;ime course will start on busin;:ssJapanesc lang,.age and culture. The programme extends from answering the phone to entering agreements. "It is the first time such a course has been offered by TAFE in Queensland," Asian studies co-ordinator Jeffrey Squires said. "Our own TAFE will be the first in Queensland, perhaps Australia, to give strong emphasis on training Australians in Asian language and culture. "The Coast had a national 'first' when the Capricorn Iwasaki Resort was built. "And that's why the Coast hospitality business people should be interested in the courses." Dealing with nationals from other countries is not always easy. Cultural practices may vary, besides language differences. The chance to study Japanese language and culture is yours. Phone the Capricorn Coast TAFE Centre, 33 6200, and 'score' another first for the Coast.

PLAQUE READY FOR ARMSTRONG'S MONUMENT THE Capricorn Coast Historical Society will unveil a plaque on Wednesday (July 12) to mark the rock known as Armstrong's Monument. The large rock's unveiling, on Farnborough Road, will be celebrated at 10.30am. Livingstone Shire chairman Cr John Bowen and councillors will attend. The following information was contributed by the Capricorn Coast Historical Society. Experiments in growing sugar cane in the Yeppoon district began about 1870. William Broome was first to grow it successfully at Woodlands in 1878. On April 21, 1883, Yeppoon Sugar Company was floated at Woodlands Estate, Farnborough. By 1887 the company had 1000 acres under cane, first crushing in 1884, and by 1900 the company employed 200 people, mostly South Sea Islanders. The first South Sea Islanders to work at sugar company Farnborough plantations came from the Solomon Islands in September 1883. Rutherford Armstrong (1889 - 1903) was

Farnborough Mill's fourth manager. The Mill closed in 1903 but Armstrong stayed on to supervise disposal of its property. Part of the mill building was moved to Yeppoon to become the Myola Hall on the corner of Normanby and Hill Streets. The mill chimneywas the last to go ... in 1916. The bricks were scraped and restored by William Baker and used for the floor:ng and walls of the bakehouse he built in Normanby Stree, later to be Hutton's 3akery. Opinions were divide:. as to the reason:, for the sugar co ,-Apany mill c:osure ... difficulty and cost of transport was a major reason. Wagon loads of bagger_ raw sugarwere ct. by teams of bullocks or : )rses ,o the railw,../ at Tanby to be taken to Bur.daberg for refining. A steam traction engine w,:s later used for trrinsport. Sometime between 1F')7 and 1900, after an argument with the railway, Rutherford Armstrong purchased :he stc.,m engine and ha:t the sugar taken to a wharf on the Fitzroy Rive:. bypassing the railway. Although many strong cases were preserIted to the Queensland Government for a railway to Yeppoon between 1880 and 1909, by the time the railway was built the district's sugar industry was finished. The other major reason for the mill's closure was the ending of Pacific Island labour. Rutherford Armstrong had considered it would be impossible for the mill to operate economically without Island labourers. The mill had never been a paying proposition but some of the cane farmers thought the mill was always too small. The area cultivated was also too small but the amount of cane was still too big for the mill to handle. The largest output for a season was 2000 tons of sugar. None of the Yeppoon Sugar Company records have survived, but there are many stories about Rutherford Armstrong. He was extremely fond of horses and was a good rider and reinsman, driving himself in little two or four horse vehicles. He was fond of children end when passing them on the road would crack his whip and raise his hat in salute. The rocky outcrop on the mill road two miles

• ABOVE: Rutherford Armstrong. from Yeppoon was given the name of Armstrong's Monument by Donald Brown after Armstrong was involved in a slight accident there that left him with a broken leg. The story goes that a group of children from the mill returning from school in Yeppoon had placed a dead oppossum in a life-like pose on the rock and Armstrong's horse had been frightened, and bolted. Armstrong left Yeppoon in 1911, taking two of his favourite horses, Kite and Tooey. In 1920 he was running a sheep property in the North-west Queensland district of Richmond. Rutherford Armstrong returned to Yeppoon in the late 1940s and lived in retirement in Strow Street, Barlow's Hill. He died there in the 1950s at the age of 95.

ALP candidate will encourage LSC not to sell caravan parks ALP Broadsound candidate Jim Pearce this week said he will encourage Livingstone Shire Council to resist attempts to sell off the shire's four caravan parks. Mr Pearce said he was responding to recent council discussions about privatising the caravan parks. "It is necessary the State Government develop close links and be supportive of local Government," Mr Pearce said. "My current experience as a Broadsound Shire councillor has opened my eyes to the many ways in which I hope to help each of the Shires which make up the seat of Broadsound. "It would be a shame and a great loss to the community if Livingstone Shire relinquished its involvment in caravan parks as they are a valuable area of tourist and leisure activity. "Many residents and ratepayers were alarmed when Livingstone Shire approved the destruction of so much of Beachside Caravan Park to make way for the Iwasaki four-lane highway," he said. "Even with that loss of revenue the remaining parks provide council with tens of thousands of dollars of profit each year. "The loss of this income will have to be found from ratepayer funds. Why eliminate a source of revenue? Why not develop these assets for greater profits and ease the future burden on ratepayers. "We need to be imaginative in all levels of government. Caravan parks, run properly, provide inexpensive holidays for Australian tourists. "We need to retain the Capricorn Coast as a holiday venue for Central Queenslanders and their families. "Local Government authorities in Australia have a long standing tradition of involvment in commercial activities. "If council is concerned about funds for redeveloping these sites, has it given enough thought to possible joint ventures? No one will

object to a profitable involvement which benefits the ratepayers and residents. "I know I have the support of many residents when I say the provision of economical holiday facilities is one area in which Livingstone should remain involved. "If elected to a Goss Labor Government later this year I will be doing all I can to assist the shire, in any way I can." Try a

Canadians know we're `down under' "AND we think we have an identity problem in Central Queensland," Capricorn Tourism and Development Organisation regional manager Barry Lee said. "It's often been said that most overseas people have little or no idea of where Queensland is, let alone Central Queensland. "And they are probably right, despite selective advertising expenditure and superb marketing efforts by the QTTC and ATC. This is particularly true in Canada." Mr Lee said the Australian Tourist Commission (ATC), in conjunction with several State tourist boards, spent about 5220,000 to identify groups of Canadian long-haul travellers offering the greatest potential for Australia. One of the things they discovered was that Canadians are generally ignorant of Australia. "An aspect of their market research programme was to present a blank map of Australia to a group of Canadians in the research group and then ask them to locate any city they knew. "The map indicated some surprising results to the questions ... it was upside down (we're `clown-under'); Auckland was on Cape York; the outback was 'somewhere in WA; Perth was in Central Queensland; Brisbane was just south of Gove. "It indicates the giant task we still have in front of us," Mr Lee said. "But, what does the average Australian know about Canada?"

Time for ducks and quail to move on! WILD ducks and quail can be hunted under permit in Central Queensland from August 5 to September 30, though 12 brown or stubble quail may be taken per day from July 1 to September 2. This year's open season is later and shorter than usual, after being approved by Order in Council on June 8. Environment and Conservation Minister Geoff Muntz said this year's mild autumn temperatures and late rains in many parts of the State meant ducks were breeding about the time the season normally started. "The excellent breeding conditions mean their conservation status is quite safe, and by delaying the season, more ducklings will have time to mature," Mr Muntz said. Mr Muntz said only 12 ducks per day can be taken. A free indentification brochure is available from Department of Environment and Conservation Department offices throughout the State. The permit is S20 available from department offices. At the season's end, permit holders are required by law to submit a return detailing numbers of ducks taken and types of habitat used.

Is flashing naughty or not? IS flashing naughty or not? is the question posed quite often by RACQ members to its legal office and traffic and safety department. "We refer to situations where motorists use their headlight flashers to warn oncoming traffic of the presence of a polite radar trap ahead,” RACQ publicity officer Vern Mathieson said. "The confusion stems from the fact that the Police Department seems to be in two minds on the issue. While some district traffic superintendents gave gone on record as condoning the practice, police in other areas of the state have gone to the trouble of posting officers up the road from radar sites, specifically to apprehend headlight flashers. "In the latter case, motorists are booked under section 36(a) of the Traffic Act for "obstructing or hindering a member of the Police Force in the exercise of his powers or duties under the Act". "Because this is a summons offence, the charged motorist would be required to appear before a magistrate who would have to decide whether the defendant knew of the radar trap, whether headlights were flashed, if it was done to warn other motorists of the radar, and whether the action did 'obstruct or hinder' the police." The RACQ points out while the rights and wrongs of warning other motorists of police radar could be argued at length, it could be seen as one area where the exercise of discre-

tion by police only serves to leave the public guessing. "Until the Traffic Act is amended or a Police Commissioner's edict directing police officers throughout the state to tolerate the practice is issued, motorists can only be advised to curb their neighbourly intentions toward fellow drivers and not flash their headlights in the vicinity of police radar."

Pearce: Hinton smooth talker'

ALP Broadsound candidate Jim Pearce this week described Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton as a smooth talker who uses the media in an attempt to convince the public that he knows all. "Mr Hinton has a habit of knocking everything not suggested by himself ... he takes credit for other people's initiatives," Mr Pearce said. "His greatest asset is his ability is to twist the facts. He has attempted to do this by claiming I constantly oppose the harbour development at Rosslyn Bay. "I want to make it clear I support the concept of the small boat harbour being provided. It will be a tremendous benefit to the fisherman and pleasure craft operators. "I will support any development that falls within environmental guidelines, creates jobs and is in the best interest of the people I represent. "I will not support any development set up to benefit a few at the cost of the environment or the living standards of local communities."

YEPPOON GOLF CLUB MEMBERS LOOK BACK OVER 20 YEARS • Report compiled by present members with assistance by associates YEPPOON Golf and Country Club was formed at a public meeting on November 26, 1965 at The Strand Hotel. The actual date when the formation of a golf club in Yeppoon was first discussed by a small group of Yeppoon businessmen is not known. The group decided to look around for a suitable site and then hold a public meeting to assess the general public's reaction. Only 19 people attended the public meeting but the small response did not deter the enthusiasts. A report to the meeting that 137 acres of land at Farnborough, owned by Ben Kent, suitable for a golf course to be constructed, could be purchased for $830 and 52220 had been raised by debentures: The meeting "a Club to be called the Yeppoon Golf and Country Club, be, and is, hereby formed ". A steering committee was formed: chairman was Strand Hotel licensee Brian Blanning (later succeeded by John Ware); secretary Duncan McColl; assistant secretary John Noyes; treasurer Cyril McCook. The committee: Bert Cooper, John Ware, Ben Kent and Beryl Dowling. The committee was authorised to acquire the land on a six month optional term and to start construction work. It was expected as progress was made, so would public response be engendered and more finance in the form of debentures and lub membership subscriptions ($2) be forth-

Livingstone Shire Council machinery was hired at weekends to clear nine holes and one green was formed. Dick MacNevin supplied a tractor for his debentures, Harry Platts put down a bore and fresh water was found, and a large amount of voluntary work was done by John and Florence Ware, John and Connie Noyes, Brian and June Blanning, Mery and June Nash and Bill Freeman. Unfortunately, it became apparent that through lack of funds and public interest, the venture was not successful and it was decided an alternative site be found and the Farnborough land sold. The land was sold to Jack Hinz for $2000. It was in February, 1968 the present site on the Yeppoon-Rockhampton Road was obtained. At a public meeting in Yeppoon Town Hall officers and committee were appointed: patron Bill Blanning; president John Ware; vice presidents Ken Norton and Eddie Gedge; secretary John Noyes; treasurer Jack Garner; captain Col Smith. Committee: Bill Hamilton, Jack Cargill, Horrie Stone, George Patterson and Harry Goodson.

Other committee members during the formative years: Harold Goodwin, Harry Dobe, John Barnes, Lou Stevensen, George Norton, Al Ritchie and Frank Walden. The new site's total area was about 103 acres. Arrangements were made for the immediate purchase from the West family of 53 acres at S40 per acre and with the option of Si deposit, to purchase the balance within five years at the same price. During the weeks that followed and particularly Sunday mornings, members and associates tidied the course by gathering fallen tree branches, twigs and stones. It was on such an occasion a popular and well attended fixture was born (now sadly off the calendar). On arrival at the clubhouse one Sunday morning about an hour before competition time, club captain Col Smith found six stalwarts (Arthur Balchin, Bill Noller, George Norton, Hans Thiele, John Ware and Joe Dotti) refreshing themselves after a hard morning's work. He told them their golf would dramatically improve if, instead of imbibing on the Sabbath and being such sinners, they went to church like he did. The upshot was that if he could find five more saints in the club, like he was, a challenge match would be played the next Sunday starting at 7am. A notice was put up asking any interested members to nominate. Forty-two players turned up at the hit-off time and after much searching into character and antecedents, 21 Saints played 21 Sinners over 12 holes. The result (only after numerous objections and several recounts): Saints won, 865.5 shots, against 866. The challenge match became an annual event with the associates, calling themselves Angels, playing Sinners. Construction of 12 holes started as soon as possible after the land purchase. Fairways, dams, tees, greens and semi rough were carved out of the scrub. Ken Norton was paid on a deferred basis to bulldoze the narrow fairways, brush clearance and dam construction. Mr McArthur from Sydney was brought in by Horrie Stone to design the layout and he recommended some trees actually on the fairways and constituting natural hazards be left ir, to be removed later if thought necessary. Probably due to the profane language these particular trees engendered, theywere ever.tually removed ... or died from disease? Greens were formed .tnd laid. Couch grass was donated by Bob Skuthorpe and Mr Spurway and the committee hired a cutter from Rockhampton Golf Clt.b to cut the turf. Alex Harmsworth made arid donated a sign

• ABOVE: Yeppoon Golf Club's pro-am on the weekend was a success. Pictured is professional Greg Carroll as he lines up to putt. `Yeppoon Golf Club' arid erected it over the front gate. Local interest blossomed. Club membership increased, labour, materials and machinery were supplied either free, on deferred terms, or by debentures. Life membership was offered for 5200 and among the early purchasers were Jack Garner, Horrie Stone, Harry Goodson and Ken Norton and family. Three trustees were appointed ... John Ware, Godfrey Haskins and Henry Findlay. In the meantime, the first constitution was drawn up in which it was stated: "The Club shall be called The Yeppoon Golf and Country Club'. • The annual subscriptions were: members, S15 per annum; associates, SlOpa; husband and wife, joint, S2Opa; non-playing members, SSpa; juniors, 16 years and over, S5; juniors, under 16 years, S2pa. Green fees: members, S15 per annum, 50cents per day; associates, SlOpa, 30 cents; juniors, SlOpa, 30 cents; visitors, gentlemen 80 cents, ladies 50 cents. • On June 20, 1969, a layout of nine holes was opened for play. The first clubhouse was the captain's car green fees were taken on the bonnet, trophies displayed on the back seat and alcohol sold from the boot. Soon a cement slab was laid on which ice boxes were placed containing beer and soft drinks. A roof and closed-in bar was constructed followed by a fully enclosed clubhouse

built by local builders, Barnes and Stevensen, ably assisted by some enthusiastic members. On July 11, 1969 a meeting was held at Yeppoon Town Hall to form an associates committee. Members' club secretary John Noyes was committee chairman. It was proposed byMrs L Goodson and seconded by Mrs Irene Smith "that this meeting elect office bearers" ... monthly meetings have continued. The first associates committee: president, Mrs C Noyes; vice president, Mrs I Smith; secretary, Miss G Norton; treasurer, Mrs H Norton; captain, Mrs L Goodson. The first club competition was held on August 2, 1969, the nine holes were played twice. On October 4, three further holes came into play giving the club a 12 hole layout. Membership at this time was 80. Three bores were put down but only salt water was discovered. Two earth dams were constructed providing minimum requirements but capable of enlargement as funds became available. Sources of funds to date included 54400 raised by debentures and a loan of S5000 arranged with the ANZ Bank. Ampol helped with donations towards flags, hole cutting equipment and cups and a ball washer. Every year the club advanced but 1971 was an excellent year. The grounds committee of Ken Norton, Arthur Balchin (greens director), George Norton, Hans Thiele, Bill Noller, Peter Holt, John Ware, John Noyes, Bill Marshall, Bob Burrowes, Len Matthews and Norm Myler made course improvements. They spread hundreds of yards of sawdust (donated by Len Matthews) on the fairways in front of the greens, removing trees and saplings to enable easier slashing of the rough, removed mat grass from the greens (Ken Norton's use of diesel oil was successful), built a machinery shed and lighting plant, phone was installed (thanks to Harold Goodger) and many other worthy projects. Seemingly, constant working bees were happening and members Bob Walters, Don Bundeson, David Wilshire, Ben Ward, Neil Eylander, Ray Armstrong, Bill Napier, Bill Freeman, Jack Stratford. Bert Wust and Al Ritchie were just a few of the many willing helpers. Caretaker accommodation was provided for Mr and Mrs Bert Wust. The first greenkeeper to be employed was Gordon Mallory. •Associates donated 5200 to members towards the clubhouse awning in time for the Open. The first Open Championship was in 1971. The associates played on April 16, mixed pairs 17th and members on April 18. The entry fee was S1.50 with 20 cents per player in the teams event. A junior section was formed under the direction of Don Bundeson and Eddie Gedge with members and associates helping with tuition in play, rules and etiquette. Rockhampton professional Dave Gardener held frequent instruction courses and the Wednesday Club started. The first hole-in-one was made at the old number four hole by club captain Col Smith on December 30, 1970. Many members asserted the ball ricocheted from tree to tree on its way to the hole.

BITS put pressure on Yeppoon for threequarters, but Yeppoon finally got itsel: together in the final quartc to kick eight goals for the team ... winning by .9 points. There were some rin. biting moments for Steve Burns on the side..nes with a injury ..nd Bryan Cruickshank, also injured, hobbling on and off with messages. Bryan Munn's fan club on.the hill was treated to some specialist football and were delighted with his display of twisting, turning and paNing onto his team-mates. He was backed up by s.irne great play on the backline from John 3idgeon and D,..vid Chapman. Anthony Warwick played consistently in The nick and Reg Williams popped up everywhere to take away the ball. Troy Tomkins booted four goals and Bryan Munn and Greg Williams kicked three each. Two each went to Dan Bromley and Robin Masek and one each to Anthony Warwick, Mark Van Gestel, Mike Wozniak, Steven Bird and Dale Wetzler. Best players: Bryan Munn, mug; David Chapman, Pacific dinner for two; Troy Tomkins, dinner for two at Bellowing Bull; Danny Bromley, Kristin's Hair; Greg Williams and Anthony Warwick.

Senior Swans put it together for final quarter victory over BITS YEPPOON's junior Aussie rules teams had a case of the school holiday doldrums on the weekend with two losses and one win against Parkhurst. The under 11 and 15 teams fielded undermanned teams with a resultant score. Parkhurst, with a full and stronger side, took on the Coast under 1 1 s in the first match for the day, but the Swans had the cards stacked against them from the first whistle. Young John Lawton played his best game this season in an effort to lift the team but to no avail. The final score: Parkhurst 11-8-74 d Yeppoon 4-4-28. Best players: John Lawton, Jess Upkett and Nathan Hirning. This was also repeated in the under 15 with only nine players fronting on the day. The team was made up of under 13s who were already tired from a previous game. Again, one man ruled for the day amongst the iwans ... Dale Perrin. He excelled all day and 'was all over the field. Rover Jason Geier also had a great game and backman Steve Phillips put in all day, but to no avail against a strong, fast Parkhurst side. Parkhurst ran amok with loose men all over the field and it just became an impossible task for Perrin to mark them all. To Swans credit they never gave in and even

Onlywin for the daywas coach Dale Wetzler's under 13 side. Playing their usual hard fast game, the young Parkhurst side was no match. A special mention to Glen Edwards and Nathan Hirning who showed great sportsmanship and played for Parkhurst so the Rockhampton side could field a team. The CQ representative players showed the skills they had gained through rep football and played the ball hard all day, while quiet achievers Steve Broadhurst and Cookie Campbell continued on where the others left off and put points on the board. Nathan Farlow, Andrew Mackie and Heath Devine kept the backdoor closed and Shannon Jamieson played his best game this season. Final score: Yeppoon 9-19-73 def Parkhurst 0-0-0.

They fought well all day and only inaccurate kicking in the early part of the game kept them from winning by a greater margin. The Coast boys kicked 6-2 to three points in the last quarter to go out easy winners. Brett Geissman nicked well and was ably backed by Sean Chamberlain, Dale Wetzler and tremendous verbal encouragement from Alex Muller . Brett Lord had on his kicking boot at full forward and kicked seven goals, Sean Chamberlain two and Brett Geissman and Dale Wetzler one each.
