Police want help to ensure crime doesn't pay. on Coast CRIME, lile business, must run at a profit and the only way to reduce crime on the Capricorn Coast is to make life harder for those people who spend their lives preying on others. This is the first message from Yeppoon Police officer m charge Sgt is Ken Tanzer who is starting a campaign to involve all residents in crime prevention. He has embarked on this campaign in response to increased criminal activity in recent months, activity that has resulted in thefts from Coast homes, businesses and private vehicles. An example is the Western Australia couple who lost $900 left in a handbag at Rosslyn Bay Harbour while they were away looking at the view. Their car was locked, the bag wasn't visible but a hole was punched in a rearwindow The empty bag was later found in a rubbish bin at Wreck Point making police believe the thief, or thieves, escaped on foot along the beach. Only days later, the tyres of a car parked at the harbour were slashed. Police believe the would-be thieves lashed out when they found no valuables in the vehicle. But Coast residents and visitors are not only in danger of being robbed ... there has also been a marked increase in violence: A gang, later found to have come from Rockhampton, viciously bashed a young man at Emu Park. They took to him with a lump of

4x2 hardwood near Bell Park. Another gang so savagely bashed a man in Normanby Street, Yeppoon, that he was hospitalised for days. The victim chose not to press charges which left the police with no course of action. "It's no longer a case ofyouthful exuberance and high spirits which results in fights," Sgt Tanzer said. "It's a deadly combination of excessive alcohol and sometimes drugs which looses vicious fiends onto the streets late at night. "These animals are looking for trouble. They respect no-one. Anyone can become an innocent victim of these crazies." Sgt Tanzer said the Capricorn Coast had changed, for the worst. The area's promotional activities have acted as a beacon to both tourists seeking the good life ... and criminals seeking the easy life. "Our population is growing, there are more tourists ... and human parasites have seen a way to make a living here," he said. "The problem we were going to look at tomorrow is here today ... and only a united community can stop it growing to the stage where Coast residents are forced to live in steel cages as has happened in capital cities," Sgt Tanzer said. A united community can beat crime because instead of would-be criminals having to look out for cruising police cars, they also have to be

aware every home has silent watchers ready to phone details to police of number plates, clothes, height, colour of hair and any other information that means capture. "The community has to adopt a self-policing attitude," Sgt Tanzer said. "It's not enough to expect the police to have all the answers. We need information. We need to have the backing of the whole community." The campaign by Yeppoon Police will comprise more than Press releases. Sgt Tanzer will be giving talks to clubs on security for homes, business and cars, as will other police officers. "We want to meet the people. We want to talk to everyone. We want to explain just how serious this situation has become and what everyone can do to help," he said. A Neighbourhood Watch could be instituted whereby police and concerned members of a neighbourhood liaise on a regular basis so a flow of information stops crime before it starts. Sgt Tanzer wants to receive a response from the community so both police and citizens can tackle the problem of crime and take steps that stop the situation getting out of hand. "Secure property. be aware that thieves are around, report suspicious activities and we can make arrests," Sgt Tanzer said. "Make the Capricorn Coast a hard place for criminals to make a living and together we can drive them out."

• By John and Suzy Watson THE Capricorn Coast Mirror's appeal to find 100 donors of $5 each a week to pay off the CCTO Information Centre is off and running with cheques already paid in totalling $2665 ... and 24 additional pledges which are to be collected for next week. In all, that's 36 donors promising $9360 this year and a total of $18,720 in payments over two years toward the Information Centre loan of $54,000. CCTO chairman Brian Hooper took the appeal to heart last week and made an appeal to his own members that they had to lead the way. "They responded magnificently," he said. "As can be seen by the list of names, people directly involved in tourism have put their hands in their pockets to see this appeal is a success." In addition, Mr Hooper, and CCTO management committee members, also contacted other businesses this week to see if they were interested in helping ... "We had a dream run," he said. "Everyone we spoke to knew about the appeal, thought it was a good idea, and supported it. "Some people represent businesses with management in other areas and they have promised to seek permission to contribute. "Others have asked if donations are tax deductible and, quite frankly, we don't know. The CCTO is an incorporated body and it's possible donations are deductible ... we're checking it out." Mr Hooper said he and management committee members would continue contacting tourism operators this week and early next week to gain cheques and pledges. "The way this appeal is going we could have our 100 donors by the end of the month," he said. "If we fail, it won't be for the want of trying. "But we do have one problem ... time. All of us have businesses to operate and while we can get on a phone, it's not that easy to physically visit people and pick up cheques. "There would have been a lot more names on the list with cheques had we had the time to get around and pick them up. "We're hoping to see some arrive in the mail in the next few days, some to be dropped in and others that will be picked up." Mr Hooper reiterated his, and the CCTO's commitment, that every cent pledged would be paid directly off the CCTO Information Centre Loan Account to reduce the principal. "The quicker the principal is reduced, the less interest that will be paid meaning more value from every donor's dollar," Mr Hooper said. "In addition, the CCTO's monthly loan repayment of $1000 will continue in accordance with the terms of the loan. "This means the money raised in the appeal will actually increase the value of our $1000 payments because more of that money will come of the principal as well." (The CCTO made $1000 payments from early this year until the annual general meeting and paid only $158 off the principal. That is the reason for this appeal.) Mr Hooper said to safeguard donors' interests should anything happen to the present executive, a motion would be passed at the September 12 management committee meeting that "all monies received from this appeal will be paid directly to the CCTO Information Centre Loan Account and that the CCTO will continue paying its monthly $1000 loan payment in accordance with the terms of the loan".

This appeal calls for tourism operators and businesses to pay $5 a week for the next two years toward the Information Centre loan. To make collection easier, it is suggested cheques be made payable to : CCTO Information Centre Loan Account, P.O. Box 166, Yeppoon, 4703 ... and that amounts of $65 (13 weeks) $130 (26 weeks) and $260 (one year) be paid. Mr Hooper said the CCTO was also happy to accept smaller payments should contributors so wish. The following 12 businesses have paid cheques to the value shown toward the appeal for this year and have given a commitment to complete their total $520 donation due over the two years: • Capricorn Coast Mirror —John & Suzy Watson — paid $260 •Capricorn Printing—Terry & Cheryl Simpson — paid $260 • Seaspray Waterfront Holiday Units — Blossom Hooper — paid $260 • Poinciana Caravan Park — Doug & Sylvia Belot — Paid $260 • Bay Vacationer Units — Peter & Yvonne Motton — paid $260 • Driftwood Motel — John Allen — paid $260 • Reef Seeker — Helen Jackson — paid $130 • Victory — Helen Jackson — paid $130. • Capricorn News agency — Ian & Colleen Graham — paid $260 • Capricorn Cabs — P W & S C Denning — paid $260 • Maguire & Associates Solicitor — Tom Maguire — $65 • Brian Hooper Real Estate — Brian Hooper — $260 The following 22 businesses and individuals have pledged donations of $520 over two years: • North Keppel Tourist Resort (Peter Hayward) • Cooberrie Park (John & Pattie Shannon) • Kempsea Car Park (Arthur & Betty Ware) • Seven Dwarfs (Beverly & Brian Gilligan) • Whites Travel Centres (Ruth & Trevor White) • Coastal View Tours (John Dowie) • Gumnut Glen (Kerry Flynn) • Beryl & Maurie Cagney • Denison Star (John Donkin) • Sandy's Cafe (Frank Knobel) • Keppel Barge Service (Ken Woods) • Capricorn Palms Caravan Park (Richard & Jeanette Cavanagh • Sunlover Lodge (Wolfgang & Brigette Bielharz) • Bee Bops (Helen Bayne) • Capricorn Reef Diving (Rob Frietag) • Capricorn Fruit Supplies (Betty & Dick Tyrer) • Old Glenmore Homestead (George Birkbeck) • Barrier Reef Backpackers (Appleton & Widdowson)• Keppel Bay Motors (Bill & Barbara Ward) • L J Hooker Real Estate (Nick C alli anio ti s • Stewart & Brumm Chemists (Duncan Stewart & Kevin Brumm) • Paul Watts & Associates Solicitor (Paul Watts) • Blue Anchor Motel (Don Machin) • Stickey & Associates Solicitor (Warren Rinkevich).

Jim Pearce ALP

candidate for Broadsound The ONLY change for the Better

■ ABOVE: Scott Lang 2, enjoyed a spaceship ride on Saturday at the Emit Park State School Fete.

`Rock solid' decision on daylight saving MEMBER for Broadsound Denis Hinton said this week the Government's decision not to introduce daylight saving was "rock solid and will not be compromised". "'the Premier's statement that businesses could chose their own trading hours, simply reflects the liberalised trading hours now available to most businesses," Mr Hinton said. "They can chose whatever trading hours they like. However, it is perfectly obvious normal trading hours will best suit the public and in the majority of cases be the most profitable. "The current outcry by Rockhampton Mayor Ald Jim Webber and business interests did not reflect the views of the majoritywho did not use interstate flights or were even aware of airline schedules," he said. "The majority are concerned about domes-

tic problems of tired children who have to catch a school bus an hour earlier each day, but will not easily go to sleep in the daylight. "Most people do not want it and recall vividly the unsuccessful trial that was carried out in 1973. "I conducted a telephone survey about six weeks ago and recorded 131 votes against daylight saving and 59 votes for it, reflecting the views of mainly Capricorn Coast residents who live in a tourist area. "It is 2-1 against daylight saving and problems with children is the major factor," Mr Hinton said. "At Government level, it was suggested school hours could be put back one hour as a compromise solution, but this was rejected because of domestic inconvenience, particularly with working mothers."

Daylight saving answer to problems... LIVINGSTONE Shire chairman Cr John Bowen was no t contacted by Brisbane Lord M ayor Sally-Anne Atkinson about daylight saving ... and it's a pity because he's in favour of it. He said this week he could not speak for the council on this issue because it was a matter that had to be put to the table as a whole but he spent the first 18 years of his life in Wales with daylight saving for 12 years ... and he likes it. "Daylight saving started in World War II when the experts of the day were asked by the government in Britain to devise a way to make work, and life in general, more efficient," he said. "The answer was daylight saving. It was an answer that was found during a time of national emergency, of great stress and strain. "A nation at war, fighting for its life, turned to daylight saving to increase productivity, to save fuel such as electricity and to generally make life more efficient. "Today, Australia is a nation in economic difficulty, a nation going down the plughole." Cr Bowen said changing clocks helped save Britain ... it could do the same for Australia. He said daylight saving was the ideal way of life for a coastal area such as the Capricorn Coast where people sought a casual way of life. Also, the Coast had a large pensioner population and they would appreciate the savings in electricity. The daylight hours were divided into two sections; the working daylight hours and the leisure daylight hours. "You wake up in the morning, have breakfast, and go to work ... all in daylight," Cr Bowen said. "You leave work, travel home and have time for leisure activities ... in daylight." He said it made no sense sleeping through the morning daylight because, for many people, it was too hot and they awoke earlier anyway. But while they were awake an hour earlier, there was little that could be done with the extra hour. There wasn't enough time to go to the beach and it was too early to mow the lawn. But if everyone awoke an hour earlier because the clocks had been changed, the same hour could be used after work and be added to the remaining daylight hours ... there was time to mow the lawn and go to the beach! Cr Bowen said he had read arguments that cows would not respond to daylight saving but he had spent his early life on a farm and knew that was incorrect. "Cows in Wales have been accustomed to daylight saving all their lives," he said. "They don't wear watches, they just wander in to be milked through habit. "Farmers usually give cows something sweet at milking time and the cows respond. They know that if they wander in to the milking shed there's something in it for them.

"They are quite happy to turn up an hour earlier." Cr Bowen said it took, at the most, three days to have the cows arriving an hour earlier for milking. Also, daylight saving did not cause an earlier lambing seasons, did not make chook lay eggs any differently nor did it affect pigs. He said the issue would probably be debated at the September council meeting.

MEMBER for Merthyr Santo Santoro attended an inaugural public meeting to form a Capricorn branch of the Liberal Party on Wednesday night at the Keppel Bay Sailing Club. About 30 people attended from 7pm to 9.30pm during which lively discussion about topical issues ensued. Mr Santoro said he was greatly encouraged by the support that was expressed at the meeting for a branch of the Liberal Party in the Capricorn Coast and hinterland area. The meeting decided that several interested people unable to attend would be followed up and that a second meeting would be held by the end of September to formally launch the branch. During his address to the meeting, Mr Santoro said the Liberal Party was the only viable alternative government party for Queensland. "The matter of candidates for Broadsound was raised at the meeting but no firm decision was, or could be made," he said. "A decision would depend on the availability of a suitable candidate and the existence of a strong organisation able to fund and run a campaign." Mr Santoro said Coast residents who attended the meeting expressed strong support for the Liberal Party's "No" stand for the October 14 referendum. "In fact, this sort of response is typical of the response throughout Queensland and the referendum is doomed to a massive defeat and total humiliation for the National Party that is not being honest about genuine electoral reform," he said. "This defeat will be followed by an even greater loss of support at the general election that will follow the referendum before the end of the year as disenchanted National Party voters in areas such as the Capricorn Coast flock to the Liberal Party as the only alternative. "The Labor Party has only very recently demonstrated that it can't run itself on the floor of Parliament, let alone the State of Queensland," Mr Santoro said. "Behind the gloss of Goss stand a bunch of burnt out men who have been used to perpetual Opposition and who will judged as fit as only for Opposition for the voters of Queensland at the next election."

DURING the past 12 months I have made a special effort to visit the many businesshouses throughout the electorate of Broadsound. Our area has been neglected far too long, too many business people are struggling to make ends meet. It is a fact of life in business that only the fit will survive. Governments cannot legislate for business survival. We can, however, develop an atmosphere in which business people may plan with confidence. I am enthusiastic about Labor's Regional Economic Plan for Central Queensland. I am confident the benefits of thiswill flow into the commercial sector of Yeppoon where empty shops are currently a cause for alarm. The situation for many is desperate. We have to help wherever we can and we will. I can be contacted on 58 1694 or 33 6649. Authorised: Richard Witkiewicz, 19 Brock Cres, Dysart

A STATE Government task force to formulate beverage container deposit legislation has been approved at the request of Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton. Mr Hinton, who initiated the move on June 14, after discussions with the Capricorn Conservation Council, said Environment Department officers will examine similar legislation in South Australia and legislation and practices in the United States, Norway and Sweden. "Scandinavian countries have developed the recycling process to an art form and could form the model for Queensland legislation," Mr Hinton said. "Options being considered by the task force include the banning of steel cans, as aluminium cans are more suitable for recycling and less energy is required to recycle the cans than to refine aluminium from aluminium oxide.

Consumers, conservationists and milk vendors unite to save bottles THE conservation and consumer movements have joined the Milk Vendors Association in an attempt to head off moves by the Port Curtis Dairy Co-operative to dispense with milk in glass bottles. "The humble milk bottle will face extinction in Central Queensland unless consumers changed their purchasing habits and pressure is placed on the dairy co-operative," Capricorn Conservation Council co-ordinator Glenmary Swan said this week. "PCD is planning to phase out glass bottles in their new factory despite their environmental advantages. This will mean only milk in throw away cardboard cartons will be available or at a later date, in plastic bottles which are nonbiodegradable. "Milk cartons are being imported and their use adds to the destruction of forests around the world." "The Central Queensland Consumers Association urges consumers to buy milk in bottles to send a message to PCD directors that consumers wanted the choice," association publicity officer Alison Wright said. "Besides the environmental aspect it is cheaper to buy milk from your milk vendor and moreover it is delivered free," she said. "Milk vendors provide competition for the major retail stores and this helps to keep prices down. "Milk and bread were once the same price but when home bread deliveries ceased, the cost of brekl through the supermarkets increased to where bread is now twice the-price of milk," Mrs Wright said. "The consumers association supports the sale

Workshop for unemployed


Locally ..awned & Operated

"The task force will study deposit and recycling schemes for all beverage containers, including glass and plastic, which can now be recycled with modern technology. "We want to devise a system where 95 to 97 per cent of containers are returned. This will enormously reduce environmental pollution and cut local authority costs for garbage disposal," he said. "What we are on about are clean roads, parks, beaches and bushland. Every town and suburb would have receival depots for returnable items with obviously a high labour requirement, creating jobs. "Our society can no longer afford the throw away syndrome v,hich is adopted by industry for least cost, but with maximum environmental impact and huge costs for ratepayers." A preliminary report to State Cabinet should be available in about a month's time.

SKILLSHARE Capricornia is offering an employment workshop for unemployed people on August 23 and 24. Day one (Wednesday) involves communication skills, confidence building and teamwork activities aimed at providing an enjoyable and relevant beginning. Day two addresses basic job search skills, career and job selection and discussions on what Skillshare has to offer, finishing with a session on personal presentation. Skillshare has organised the workshop to offer training and other employment related opportunities to disadvantaged unemployed people living on the Coast. During Skillshare's eight months operation, many Coast unemployed people have been involved in a selection of courses in bar attending, wine and food waiting, trades assistant work, retail assistant and kitchenhand. Course details are available from Wilmer Thomson at Yeppoon CES agency. For further information contact Skillshare Capricornia manager Nanette Nissen, 22 2352.

of milk in bottles because the bottles can be refilled. "The average re-use in Australia is more than 20 times, but in Central Queensland is almost double that." Milk Vendors Association president Ray Gibbs said he welcomed public support from. the consumer and conservation movements. "Our association has launched a 'Buy your Milk in Bottles' campaign to promote home delivery bottle sales. "We are asking the kids and the mums to get involved in this issue so PCD will continue to produce milk in bottles," Mr Gibbs said. "The issue brings together factors such as consumer choice, jobs, the environment, price and even imports."

U3A numbers encouraging AN encouraging number of registrations have been received for courses being co-ordinated through the recently established U3A Capricorn Coast. U3A Capricorn Coast secretary Ian Whitehead said registrations had been received for real estate, drama, wood turning, interior decorating, chess, the environment, discussion group, orchid growing, armchair travel and birdwatching. Four courses, woodturning, real estate, orchid gowing and the discussion group, start within the next two weeks. Mr Whitehead said a further two or three participants was all that was required before it was practical for each of the other courses to begin. He invited anyone interested in taking part to register as soon as possible by phoning 27 2266 during working hours. "Further course information is available and will be forwarded in an appropriate timetable to all registered participants," he said.

THE final Environmental Impact Statement released by Pivot Projects Pty Ltd was "an inadequate document that does not justify a major sandmining operation" at Shoalwater Bay, Wildlife Society of Queensland Capricorn branch president Pat O'Brien said on Wednesday. The final statement was posted to Mr O'Brien on Tuesday. He, along with 68 others who objected to the proposal, were sent a 2.5cm-thick document detailing the mining company's answers to the objections. "I read the document as soon as it arrived and

am of the opinion that it is an inadequate document that does not justify a major sandmining operation in a sensitive area with recognised conservation values, especially an area listed as National Estate," he said. He said the new document recognised problems with low-level radioactivity but failed to address those problems. It also recognised problems with Yeppoon's water supply but fails to solve them. "The group still refuses to undertake proper flora and fauna surveys until after leases have been granted," Mr O'Brien said. "It says it will revegetate mine sites to Queensland Government standards ... but the government has not set any standards. None, currently, exist. "It says it will restore the land to a level acceptable for future Army activities, when in fact the area is rarely used by the Army, and then only for beach landings. "That was all that was said, which leaves cause for concern that the area will be left in a condition only suitable for tank exercises." He said the document still did not satisfy guidelines laid down by the Department of Arts, Sport, Environment, Tourism and Territories (Dasett). "There is further concern in the document because objections were made to certain known proposed mining areas and the document, answering those objections, shows new boundaries to the leases," Mr O'Brien said.

"Also, we understood that no mining would be visible from the sea but the new boundaries mean mining will most definitely be visible." His main concern is that 68 submissions were made based on available information ... and the new document contains different information. "The original information listed areas where mining was likely to take place. The new document shows additional areas that are supposed to also contain minerals," he said. "There is nothing to back up these claims. They could be pure guesswork." There were so many changes, Mr O'Brien said he would be calling on the Federal Government to call for fresh objections before making a decision on the leases. "What we objected to has changed. The nature of the proposal has changed. We should be given the opportunity to make fresh submissions," he said. "We have, for example, objected to a low-set medium density resort development and now the company is proposing a high-set, high density development. "There is no comparison in that example ... and no comparison between what we made submissions on and what the Federal Government will be dealing with to make its decision. "It's a completely different proposal." Mr O'Brien said anyone interested in seeing the area to be mined was welcome to join the conservation movement on its second Reefseeker trip to Shoalwater Bay to be held on Sunday, August 27. Tickets will cost S50 each which includes lunch on board.

MLA seeks Iwasaki resort plan Pearce seeks `please explain' on readymix

QCI holding clinic for businesses

ALP candidate Jim Pearce this week called on Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton to explain to Yeppoon residents why the concrete batching plant is still located in the centre of town. Mr Pearce said residents living in the area must be fed up with such an industry on their doorsteps and they would be disappointed there are no real signs the plant will be relocated. "I have noticed, recently, that work is going on late at night, this must be a great inconvenience to the residents," he said. "If I was the present elected member I would be very concerned about the health risk generated by the dust created by operations at the batching plant. "The company must be allowed to operate at maximum capacity- to maintain jobs and supply. But let's not forget about the ratepayers who deserve to live in a dust-free and noise-free environment." Mr Pearce said Mr Hinton was going to have the plant moved to a more acceptable site. "But it appears the plant will remain and the residents will have to settle for more dust."

A BUSINESS clinic, where employers and business people can receive free advice on a wide range of important business issues, is being held on Wednesday, August 30 in Rockhampton. The clinic, organised by the Queensland Confederation of Industry Limited, is one of a series to be held in Queensland regional centres from August 21 to September 1. "They will give employers the chance to seek confidential advice on matters such as Voluntary Employment Agreements (VEAs) and award restructuring, as well as information on employer sponsored superannuation, new workplace safety laws and the proposed training levy on all employers," QCI regional manager Graham Bloxsom said. Qualified professional advisers will also be on hand to answer questions on taxation, finance, rates of pay and award interpretation, business and commercial law, small business accounting, Government tendering, Government support services, proposed laws on product liability, class actions and consumer protection, and trade and international business opportunities. "The Queensland business environment is changing rapidly and employers owe it to theinvest ment they have in their business, to find out as much as they can about the changes taking place. "For example, under the current wages system, the onus is largely on employers to identify inefficient work practices and trade them off in return for wage rises," he said. "Few employers would know how to correctly go about this, yet the system offers tremendous potential to overhaul outdated awards and work agreements." Mr Bloxsom said a two hour seminar would precede the clinic to address the more important issues in depth. Issues to be raised will be VEAs, superannuation, award restructuring, new workplace safety legislation, the training levy, other planned legislation and local issues. Attendance at the seminar is not a condition for attending the free clinic, but information from the seminar could well prompt questions for the clinic or suggest a new course of action for a business owner. Those attending the seminar have the option of attending their own seminar business clinic immediately after the two hour seminar. The Rockhampton seminar and clinic is at the Country Comfort Motor Inn on August 30. The Seminar starts at 10am and the free clinics for the public run from 1pm. Attendance at the seminar is S48 or S38 for confederation members. "The clinic is free and not dependant on attending the seminar, though we would advise business owners to come to the seminar in order to be better informed." Contact Graham Bloxsom, 27 1278 for information about the seminar and free clinic.

A FULL management plan for the environmental parks excised from the Capricorn International Resort, portions 16 and 17 Parish of Woodlands is being sought by Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton. "My request is being considered by the Premier's Department for a special allocation of funds quite separate from the normal funding of the Conservation, Parks and Environment Department that has the responsibility for environmental parks," Mr Hinton said. "I am concerned about issues such as access which is guaranteed by the State Government, activities in the area, preservation of the unique environment, provision of toilet facilities and rubbish collection. "I intend to ensure parks are accessible, clean, beautiful and an asset to the community. "I have spoken at length with the Premier's Department on this issue and have been assured of their complete co-operation." Mr Hinton said he was supporting Livingstone Shire Council in its application for funding from the State Government for a full aerial

Sensitive Broadsound requires a Labor Government Comben SHADOW Environment Minister Pat Comben said in Yeppoon on Wednesday that only the election of a Labor Government would ensure implementation of environmental protection policies for Queensland. He was visiting the Capricorn Coast to promote the ALP's Coastal Protection Strategy. "Our Coastal Protection Strategy contains the strongest guidelines ever produced in Australia for the control of inappropriate development, but such policies can only be delivered by a Goss Government", Mr Comben said. "However much personal commitment and integrity local 'green' candidates have, the electoral system is unlikely to allow them to win, and if they do win, they will sit in impotent isolation on the cross benches. "The return of a National or a Liberal/National Government will not assist the Queensland environment. "The past neglect of the environment has left Queensland with a small national park system, no habitat protection legislation, no pollution control strategy and a weak Fauna Conservation Act," he said. "Broadsound electorate is one of the most environmentally sensitive in the State and will require a Labor Government to address the local problems. "To date Mr Hinton has only delivered half the promised Byfield National Park and allowed Speaking Tube and Elephant Hole caves to be blown up. .

three dimensional digital survey of the area suited to council's new computer equipment. "Provision of this information will make for efficient land use planning of the resort area in harmony with adjacent lands. "Total cost of the project is $200,000 and I have asked council to put in a written submission to the Premier's Department. "It would be appropriate for the Iwasaki Company to make a contribution, as it would provide them with access to the data for their own planning," Mr Hinton said. "Council should also make a contribution. "I accept the principal cost is the responsibility of the State Government in line with mine and Premier Mike Ahern's commitment that the repeal of the franchise agreement will not in anyway be a burden on council ratepayers and it will not," he said. "At this stage I cannot give accurate apportionment of costs or timing as the State Government is yet to receive council's submission. "I am assured by the Premier's Department that speedy consideration will be given to the matters."

"Mr Hinton may claim to be environmentally aware but it is his Government that is objecting to the preservation of the wet tropics, that has permitted the use of Graslan which could destroy 5 million hectares of poplar box country and which has no proper coastal protection policy," Mr Comben said. "Mr Hinton must take his part of the responsibility for the environment neglect of the National Party, however hard he tries to state locally he is the environmental conscience of the National Party."

Hinton: Green or a Labor Party stooge? MEMBER for Broadsound Denis Hinton this week queried whether a proposed Green Independent candidate was a "Labor Party stooge". In a Press release Mr Hinton said: "That is the question being asked, about proposed green independent candidate for Broadsound Pat O'Brien." "Should Mr O'Brien confirm his candidacy then this issue will be determined by the allocation of preferences," Mr Hinton said. "The only independent position is `no allocation of preferences'. "I know Pat O'Brien very well and respect his integrity. I could never believe he would allow himself to be captured by the Labor Party. "He does not personally support the Labor Party and to cast preferences to ALP candidate for Broadsound Jim Pearce, a coal miner from Dysart, would fly in the face of all his conservation principles," he said. "I do find it difficult to understand why the green movement would particularly choose Broadsound. As Member, I have easily the strongest record of any State Parliament member on conservation issues. "I don't just talk about them. I get action. "A Government member can be most effective. A green independent would be truly 'in the wilderness'," Mr Hinton said. "Nonetheless, I welcome Pat O'Brien's candidature, if he is a true independent. I know he will not allow himself to be manipulated from Brisbane as a Labor puppet. It would go against all he stands for."

A club for the folk who like Folk INTEREST in folk music on the Capricorn Coast has given birth to Sunday Night Live organised by the Keppel Bay Folk Music Club. Coast residents Greg Henderson, Mark Finter, Dave Burrows and other people interested in folk music have had some jam sessions. "We have now decided what we are looking for," Greg said. "Now it's time to tell everyone when and where they can listen to folk music." Folk covers all music except lta'rd rock. "It's the music of the people ... blue grass, blues, reggae, jazz, bush and ragtime. "We formed Keppel Bay Folk Music Club so local musicians would have somewhere to play. It's a chance for people to meet and share their love of music and to have a good time," he said. The group expects to have a folk night about every three weeks called Sunday Night Live. "We are affiliated with Queensland Folk

Federation and it means we are on the list for artists who travel Australia. So people who come along will have some variety." The first Sunday Night Live is September 3 from 7pm to 10pm at Keppel Bay Sailing Club. "The sailing club is not charging us to have the nights and we have been able to keep the admission charge to S3. "We have to have an admission charge so we can have other artists." Mr Henderson said if anyone joins the Keppel Bay Folk Music Club the fee is S3. "We will have a lower admission charge for members." To encourage people to go to the first Sunday Night Live, the club is including membership in the S3 admission charge. Mr Henderson said the club would like to hear from anyone interested in joining or playing. He can be contacted at 39 1920.

"An idea of the number of interested shooters would be appreciated because we must have approximate numbers for registration. "Included in the event will be a section where blackpowder handgunners will be able to use their flintlock and caplock pistols and all calibres of blackpowder revolvers." To shoot any event on the Cawarral range a person must be a SSAA national member. "SSAA annual membership is S40 and that gives the member a monthly book and helps fight unrealistic gun laws," he said. "Then an annual amount of S50 to the local branch which includes insurance, range fees and excludes SSAA targets. "If you can't attend many shoots, then it will cost S12 for insurance, a daily charge of S3 for use of the range and a fee for SSAA targets. "Visitors pay S5 for a day plus cost for SSAA targets. Any person paying S50 can shoot all events held at Cawarral with the only extra cost being targets." Anyone interested in wanting to shoot pistols, including blackpowder, or blackpowder rifles can write to SSAA Rockhampton Branch, PO Box 675, Rockhampton or phone Ross Newmann, 392406. Events are shot on Sundays from 9.30am at the Cawarral range. Frist Sunday, open practice; second, rifle events (rimfire, centrefire, military); third, field and game shotgun; fourth, blackpowder firearms (rifles at present). "If you are unable to attend the range on the Sunday of your event, you can attend another Sunday. The duty range officer will witness and sign your targets," Mr Newmann said. "The only requirement is that you fit into the event being shot on the day. It means being prepared to stop during the time the range is closed to change targets and obeying any direction from the duty officer ... safety first is a must."

300 aim to improve way we live THE State Community Development Conference held at the Queensland Recreation Centre, Cooee Bay, on the weekend attracted about 300 people who discussed ways to improve the communities in which they live. It was the first conference held outside Brisbane and was hosted by the Central Queensland FSP Network and the Capricorn Community Development Association.

"Queensland's geographical problems shrunk to a manageable size, linking organisations while dealing with complex issues to break down barriers to ensure co-operation' between community run services, social services and local authorities," a spokesman said. "Neighborhood centres appear to be an important need and centres in Monto, Emerald and other areas are successfully functioning. "The Capricorn Coast should be proud of having such an excellent centre as the recreation camp at Cooee Bay. With the over 300 participants, tourism received a well acknowledged boost."

Yeppoon bowlers contest pairs THE open pairs were played over the weekend at Yeppoon Bowls Club and games director Roy has another competition off his hands. The two semis were played Saturday and the final was contested Sunday morning. Tom Roos and Frank O'Brien played Eric Austin and Peter Brown in the first semi. The lead changed hands in the early part of the game. Towards the finish Brown and Austin were away to lead 15 11, then with four to play, led 18 12. Roos won three of the ends but dropped a three on the other to finish down 21-16. In the other semi, Graham McCosker and Keith McKimmie met superbrats Roy Graff and Mark Gustafson and the youngsters finished on top 21 12. The first half was a low scoring game with Graff leading 12 8 on the 13th. Graff led 14 10 with four to play and finished scoring a four and two on the last ends. In the final Graff and Gustafson lined up again. This time they met Austin and Brown. From six all on the ninth, Graff gradually drew ahead to take out the match 22 13. Frank Birkett played Tom Roos in the semifinal of the open singles and had the breaks early to go to a lead of 18 4. Tom came back to be down 18 13 then Frank took control and won the match 25 16.

The other semi saw Don McPherson take an early lead over Ray Campbell. Don led 13 3,17 4 and 19 9. Ray took over and allowed Don to score only one more single to win 24 20. There were a couple of turnups in the mixed fours. Noreen Garner, Graham McCosker, Merle Bradley and Geoff Lambert proved too consistent for Joan Beasley, Tom and Dell Roos and Bill Roberts, beating them 25 14. Geoff never looked like losing, leading 14 3 and 22 4. Bill managed to win four ends straight to make his score respectable. On paper May and Bill Manthey, Clarry Hinton and Elinor Batts looked too strong for Edna and Tom Saxby, Daphne Engel and Barry Atkinson. The scores were pretty even for the first half but Barrywent from a lead of 98 on the 11th to 24 10 on the 18th. Bill won three ends when the score still favoured Barry, 2419, but a six put on the second last end put Manthey right in it down 25 28. Bill won the last end but could only score a single. The feathers on Wednesday were won by the Goodies - George Hillier, Keith Scattergood and Frank O'Brien - with 19 plus 17. There was a turn up in the cock of the walk when Arnold Halfpenny was defeated 6 4 by Ces Redinger who will now hold the title.

the game.

Mini-rugby side shows its skills CAPCOAST'S mini-rugby side has displayed abundant skills during recent weeks of the Rockhampton and district mini-rugby union competition. The under 8 team played well against Mt Morgan but could not match the try-scoring ability of the boys from the Mount. The following game against Colts was a much more even affair and the match proved to be the most exciting and closest of the season. Colts rattled up 16 points in the first half while Capcoast failed to score. Never a team to give in, the Coast side turned the game around in the second half. Nicholas Craig set the wheels in motion by scoring early. Not long after, Terrence Toon moved into top gear to outpace Colts cover defence and score in the corner. Five minutes from fulltime Ben Newmann scored the try of the match. He secured loose ball from a centre field ruck and surprised everyone by shooting through a gap in Colt's midfield defence. Brett Cranny converted the try and with three minutes remaining, the scoreline read Colts 16, Capcoast 14. From the ensuing kickoff Simon Timbs set sail for Colts tryline. This great burst upfield resulted in a centre field scrum, 10 metres out from Colts line. Courtesy of a clean heel by hooker Boey Martin, the ball came Capcoast's way. Nicholas Craig skirted around Colts tiring defence and

scored the winning try. Sam Bongers slotted the conversion over the crossbar and the game ended 20 points to 16. Tomorrow, Saturday, Capcoast plays its penultimate game of the season ... against Gracemere at Rugby Park.

Emus meeting Diehards for a ticket straight into grand final •

By Jeff Quigley

THE mighty Emu Park Emus travel to Browne Park on Sunday to take on Etna Creek Diehards in the rugby league reserve grade major semi finals. With the Park team still smarting from the defeat in the Lou Janake Shield, Richo Hill trophy game a fortnight ago, it promises to be one hell of a game. The carrot being dangled on the result of this one is a ticket straight into the 1989 grand final. A supporters bus leaves the Pine Beach Hotel at 11.30am. Everyone is welcome aboard the bus. Children must be accompanied by an adult with cost S2 for adults and children free. There is a victory function at Emu Park

Leagues Club, at the rear of the Pine Beach Hotel after the game, starting at 6pm. Coach Steve Anderson and captain Matt Trims will have the Emus all fired up for the big one and the side will be back to full strength. The baby-faced assassin Roscoe Fordham will also be making a welcome return to the paddock. Congratulations to the Yeppoon club for the fine performance in Sunday's minor semi finals in both grades. If the plan goes according to the script, then we might have an all Coast reserve grand final. It was also great to see our own Zilzie pig farmer and no stop front rower big Brett Svendsen take out a major award last week for the fastest growing pigs.

Junior Swans in grand finals UNDER 13 and 15 Yeppoon junior Australian rules teams represent the Capricorn Coast on Sunday in the Capricornia Junior Australian Football League grand finals. Throughout the season the boys have worked and trained hard in the they may bring home a flag at the season's end. "When up against a number of teams from a large city like Rockhampton, extra effort and dedication have had to be put in," publicity officer Shane Steele said. "These teams have always looked ahead and faced the task with determination and vigor and on Sunday the fruits of their labour will come to the fore. "Whether they win or lose, to reach a final is only for a privileged few." Mr Steele the Coast will look with pride at the two teams who have fought hard to make it to the top. A bus leaves Yeppoon Showground at 8am for teams and supporters. "No matter what code of sport you follow, make it a family day outing and cheer on the Coast when the Yeppoon juniors challenge Parkhurst in both grades for the decider of the grand final flag," Mr Steele said. Under 13s kick off at 9.30am and under 15s at 11.15am at Rockhampton Cricket Grounds.

Bullets coach at Friday clinic A JUNIOR basketball clinic has been organised by Capricorn Coast Basketball on Friday, August 25. Brisbane Bullets assistant coach Peter Pendle will conduct the clinic at Yeppoon State High School stadium. Under 14s from 4.30pm to 5.30pm and under 18s from 6.30pm to 8.30pm. Coaches and interested parents are invited to attend either clinic. Mr Pendle has been involved in basketball since 1973 when he was junior coach and Lang Park Basketball Club administrator. He managed the Queensland under 18 team in 1974; was Cairns and far north Queensland coaching and development director in 1986 and 1987; 1 attended training programmes in the United States and organised the 1988 Queensland tour to Singapore for the fourth Merlion Cup.

THERE's a story on page one this week about Yeppoon Police calling for help from the public to preserve the Capricorn Coast's easy-going lifestyle. The police, as we do, like living here, and they want to see our lifestyle continue ... but there are people who want to take advantage of our friendliness and our casual way of life. Read the story, think about it ... and keep an eye out for anything suspicious. You're not expected to turn into a Dick Tracey, in fact, that's the last thing the police want ... but look out for your own, and your neighbour's, property. Remember the Yeppoon Police phone number, 39 1400. It could be your lifeline! •• • WHILE we're talking about police, spare a thought for the people involved in the QATB ... the ambulancemen. Sure, if you get crook, they're there to help. If you cut your finger they'll bandage it ... but sometimes their real role in life comes home in such a dramatic fashion you can't help wondering where you' would be without them. This is brought to mind by an incident over the weekend. A Coast resident woke up Sunday night feeling wheezy. He got out of bed, kicked in the machine that many asthmatics that keep handy ... and collapsed. His wife, who had been asleep, woke up and saw him turning blue. She called out to their teenage son and he phoned the ambulance. Minutes later the ambulance arrived. The ambulanceman was unable to revive the asthmatic and radioed for a second ambulance which arrived within minutes. Both ambulancemen worked on the asthmatic until they were satisfied he could be taken to hospital. They carried him to the ambulance and one rode in the back while the other drove. They handed him over to the nursing and medical staff but waited at the hospital until the man showed signs of revival then passed on this comforting information to his wife and son. Then, at one o'clock, on a bitterly cold morning, they returned to base to sterilise their vehicles. OK, it's their job and they must get a great deal of satisfaction from saving people's lives ... but it's great knowing people like this work around-the-clock to protect us! •

WORKING Mum in Yeppoon was out of office when phone rang. Colleague took call and discovered the working Mum's daughter calling. The daughter asks, urgently, if her mother is at work. When told she's out she leaves her phone number in Brisbane and says she wants Mum to contact her as soon as she gets in. Working Mum returns to work, gets message from daughter, and starts dialling daughter in Brisbane ... frantically. There's a couple of bring-brings then daughter answers phone. Working Mum, by now almost in panic, shouts down phone: "What's wrong? What's happened?" Daughter, quite casually: "Mum, how do you cook silverside?" Mother ... exhausted, throws hands up in horror ... and remembers that though her daughter is 24, she still needs her Mum! •

THIS is issue number 314 and Sunday, August 20, as well as being Suzy's birthday, is also the Capricorn Coast Mirror's sixth birthday. They haven't been easy years (no-one's complaining) ... but they have been extremely rewarding. There's a great sense of satisfaction involved in producing a newspaper every week. There are the advertisers to call on, the news sources such as council, emergency services and you, the public, the photographs to take and process, the typesetting, layout, design, printing at Gympie, the accounts, the deliveries ... the constant movement from bare pages to readers sitting down with the finished product. On behalf of John ("Old Baldy"), Suzy, Rhodes and Rhett Watson, I want to thank Shirley Moore and Pat Andersen for their cr;nstant help and Sandra Mackie for her years of devotion, the dozens of delivery girls and boys ... and you, the readers, who, through supporting our advertisers, make the Capricorn Coast Mirror possible. It's a great life in a great place!!!
