Hinton proposes curfew for kids YEPPOON could be one of the first communities to adopt a new State Government youth curfew scheme under a plan being developed by Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton. Under the scheme, all children under the age of 15 on the streets after 1 1pm, may be detained by police and their parents contacted with a view to their immediate return home. Mr Hinton said he had discussed the issue with Family Services Minister Craig Sherrin. "He is keen on the concept for Yeppoon if there is both police and community support," Mr Hinton said. "Consequently, I am now seeking feed-back on the concept and if there is apparent community support I will invite Mr Sherrin to a public meeting at which a decision to proceed, or not, would be made. "I have also contacted Yeppoon Police where the initial reception has been positive. "I recognise that Yeppoon is very short of police officers, as are most centres, and this additional task could be a successful lever to obtain the services of other officers in Yeppoon." He said he wanted to stress the curfew decision would be a community decision, with police approval, and would be on a trial basis of possibly three months. Social problems and family problems in the community were growing, particularly among juveniles and must be addressed. He said it was the responsibility of parents to play a major role in curtailing this problem. "A curfew programme could jolt some paretns into the realisation that their responsibilities must be faced," Mr Hinton said. The State government was grappling strongly with the onset of social problems in society, "largely brought about by increasing poverty due to the Federal Government's economic collapse". "Most parents are working part-time at night, neglecting the upkeep of their children in their efforts to provide food and high rental or mortgage payments for their families with juvenile crime, vandalism and social problems such as drug abuse and broken homes leading to a hopelessness as a result," Mr Hinton said. "Violence at home, largely because of economic stress, is on the increase. To this effect, the State Government recently introduced laws whereby the police can detain for up to four hours, a husband considered a possible physical risk to his family. No criminal record will be established." Mr Hinton said most women who experienced violence did not want to break up the family, but simply wanted the violence to stop. "These measures, including seizure of firearms, will go a long way to prevent this," he said.

Chamber has 10-point plan CAPRICORN Coast Chamber of Commerce and Industry president John Jackson and executive members will be putting a proposal to members and visitors next Tuesday which is designed to make future meetings more interesting ... and educational. A 10-point plan has been discussed and will be put to the meeting, which starts at 6.30pm at Bayview Tower, to be adopted for the year. The 10 points have been broken down into further points which are certain to create intense discussion. Mr Jackson has a proposal that is designed to increase business between chamber members. Members will be given time to detail their products and make a special offer which will be avail- able to other members. In Sydney and Melbourne "Let's make a deal" sessions also involve time being provided for people wishing to invest, or for others seeking investment, to detail what they are looking for. In response to many calls in the past for training workshops, the new chamber executive pro-

poses a variety of sessions which include training in writing marketing plans, sales promotions, growth opportunities, ideas for collecting bad debts, phone selling and direct marketing, merchandising and display, financing your business and investment tips. These workshops need input from members so that the first courses are the ones most people want. They will be held at times convenient to members. The chamber also wants to set up liaison teams with Key Coast Industry Groups. Mr Jackson said the idea was for members who were parts of other industries, to report on their field to the chamber. The idea is that pineapple, fishing, tourism, manufacturing, liquor and other industries have representatives within the chamber of commerce so that other chamber members can be aware of activities outside their own special area of concern. "It may be that one member reports on the Tanby Road area and another on Normanby Street," Mr Jackson said.

"There may be occasions when there is nothing to report and, at certain times, there will be problems that chamber members can discuss, advise on, and give support to solving." The proposal also calls for chamber involvement on jobs and job training for Coast youth. Mr Jackson feels the chamber could be in a position to offer advice to young people by taking them into businesses to see how they are run. "Someone interested in a particular field could be shown the job from the inside for a few weeks," he said. "It's a way of keeping our young people and our entrepreneurs on the Coast rather than moving to other areas. "After a few weeks, the person could be given a certificate to show a future employer." This same scheme could be used as incubation for new businesses. People who are interested in going out on their own could be encouraged by seeing the task ahead from the inside. The chamber will also discuss joint projects with other business bodies such as chambers of • CONTINUED ON PAGE 8

DO you know where your children are at night? Are you aware that you could spend tonight, or some other night, at the police station while your children are interviewed? This is the message this week from Yeppoon Police officer-in-charge Sgt Ic Ken Tanzer who said underage people were still being found on various licensed premises. "We will be continuing to have them appear before the court for these offences," he said. "If any parents have queries about whether this children can attend licensed premises please phone us (39 1400) and we will be only too happy to help." SgtTanzer said he remembered one father who phoned because he was "being howled down" at home by his teenage daughter, and his wife, because he would not let the girl attend licensed premises. "Both his wife and his daughter were saying 'everyone goes' but the father said it was against the law," Sgt Tanzer said. "He was right and he was trying to get across the message to his daughter not to be influenced by people who had little regard for the law." Police are keeping an eye on underage activities and parents whose children are involved could well wind up with a phone call late at night asking them to "come down to the police station". He produced a form that hotel licensees require people suspected of being underage to complete. Headed Certificate as to age under Section 61A (Liquor Act 1912-1984), the bold print at the bottom of the form states: A person who fails on request to furnish a certificate as above or furnishes such a certificate that is false or misleading in any material particular shall be liable to a penalty of up to S200. His message to parents is part of the on-going campaign by Yeppoon Police to make the community aware of local activities. Sgt Tanzer wants members of the public to contact police should they see anything they consider suspicious. There have been phone calls in the past fortnight and police have been given information on "various matters" that have been of concern for some time. "The information may fit a piece in the jigsaw," Sgt Tanzer said. In the past week, a 16-metre bait net was stolen from outside a caravan at Beachside Caravan Park and money was stolen following a break and

entry at a home in John Street, Yeppoon. The money was stolen between 9pm Friday and 3.15am Saturday. Another area of concern for police is the danger children face on bus stops waiting for school buses. "There's a combination of dangers at bus stops," Sgt Tanzer said. "Children playing can forget they are near a main road and run out into traffic chasing a ball or each other. "The other danger is from motorists speeding and overtaking along the road and not aware that a child could dart out in front of them." He asked parents to speak to their children about the danger they faced at bus stops and to impress on them they should be well behaved. One of the problems was children saw their bus approaching and started pushing to be first on it and they could fall in front of the wheels. He asked motorists to slow where they saw children congregating and to approach bus stops with caution.

Hinton: Pivot has advised State Govt of expected OK for sand mine PIVOT Group has advised the Queensland Government that it is confident of approval by the Federal Government on its application to sand mine leases in Shoalwater Bay Army Training area and expect approval to be official by the end of this month. Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton said on Wednesday the expected rapid approval by the Federal Government of Pivot's Environmental Impact Statement was a surprise to the State Government. He also announced Pivot had agreed to his demand that Pivot fund full construction costs of the Byfield Road for 80km north of Woodbury Road that will be used for haulage. Construction is to be to standards demanded by the Main Roads Department to withstand heavy truck speeds up to 100km/h, except through the Byfield township. The company responded after stating in its supplementary EIS that the road would be constructed by the MRD but the department has subsequently advised the company that this was not the case. The company also responded, following . statements by Mr Hinton about the allocation of $500,000 for construction of 2.3km of 8metre paved road between Polka Creek and Byfield Creek within the township of Byfield, that the road would not be of a standard that would carry sustained heavy truck traffic as required by them. Mr Hinton also said he did not believe the Federal Government would easily sacrifice environmentally sensitive areas such as Pearl Bay and Freshwater Pensinsula for mining. "It seems my information that the company • was merely chasing compensation was wrong and I apologise for any confusion caused," Mr Hinton said. "If Pivot's claims are now valid then the approval for mining leases is imminent and mining could start within 12 months ... by October 1990. "Pivot has engaged a firm of consulting engineers (Weathered Howe of Brisbane) to design the Byfield Road for construction and anticipate theywill be inviting tenders from national contractofs for the construction." Mr Hinton said until these commitments Were confirmed, the allocation of $500,000 by the State Government for Byfield is suspended because the company will meet the full cost of the road through the town. "We will be spending our $500,000 south of the Woodbury turn-off to upgrade the Farnborough/Byfield Road, widening narrow sections, because this would not be on the proposed haul road. The area for expenditure is yet to be specified," he said. "The funds will not be lost to the road, that is certain. This work will start as soon as the Farnborough school section is complete and will be done by Livingstone Shire Council work gangs as previouSly envisaged. "If the Pivot project comes to nothing, then I assure the people of Byfield that the $500,000 allocated to Byfield will be replaced," Mr Hinton said. "Regarding my concerns about the Byfield Primary School and its close proximity to the road with noise and danger factors involved, Pivot has apparently agreed to relocate the school and pay all costs including resumption costs." Mr Hinton said the speed of the Federal Government's approval for the sandmining had been staggering. "That is, of course, if Pivot's claims prove correct," he said. "My demands for infrastructure works are being satisfied by the company and presumably so will those of Livingstone Shire Council. "The environmental decisions in Shoalwater Bay are the Commonwealth Government's alone. The State Government is greatly concerned but has no say so far as the mining leases are concerned. "I thought it astonishing that Senator Richardson, on his recent visit, made no comment on the project. But he attacked the RZ Mines project which is not scheduled for action until at least 1992. "He did not even mention Pivot when apparently negotiations were already well advanced." Mr Hinton said he was concerned for the Byfield and Farnborough communities and for their treasured lifestyle but also recognised the importance of the project to the local economy and employment. "Much still needs to be sorted out, but the future negotiations are largely in the Federal Government's court."

Pearce takes firm stand against mining in Byfield National Park LABOR candidate for Broadsound Jim Pearce has taken a firm stand against sandmining the Byfield National Park. He said the prospect of a Goss Labor Government is the most likely election result and he is determined to stop any destruction of coastal land, especially in national parks. "I believe Capricorn Coast residents have been conned by RZ and their apparent agent, Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton," Mr Pearce said. "I have had a close look at the proposed operation and I can't see any lasting benefit for the Capricorn Coast, and, in particular, Yeppoon. "There is economic benefit in the establishment of a national park. Our natural environment is the resource which offers the greatest economic advantage if it is managed and promoted," he said. "The social and environmental cost of the RZ sand mining would be enormous. They may as well go somewhere else. They can forget about the Byfield area. "We are firmly committed to a ban on any mining in national park areas," Mr Pearce said. "When elected we will proceed to gazette all stages of the national park." He said the current plan was to create an operation which will move through vast areas of land. "Artificial lakes will be made due to water disturbance and an enormous dredge, the size

of a battleship, will slowly churn across the landscape. "The heavy metal will be extracted and piped out to sea where it will be loaded into a container vessel waiting offshore. "This vessel will transport the product to Gladstone for processing," he said. "With relatively little benefit to Yeppoon or the Capricorn Coast, I wonder why Denis Hinton supports this project. "The local area and economy will benefit more from a national park than from a sandmine. We will gazette a full national park and Labor in Canberra will not issue export licences for the RZ mineral sands."

f-; The ONLY charge for the Better

JUSTICE FOR ALL CAMPAIGNING throughout Broadsound, I am alarmed at the number of people who claim they have been 'got at' losing thousands of dollars because ofpolitical interference. The rights of citizens in Queensland are under constant attack and have been increasingly eroded by the National Party Government. This State Government has not adhered to the rule of law to often acting as if it is above the law. A Wayne Goss Labor Government is the only real chance the people in Broadsound have to clean up the system that has been allowed to spread like a cancer. As your local representative I will be available to represent all the residents of Broadsound. I can be even-handed because I owe no favours. I am beholden to no-one. Feel free to contact me if you have any real concerns, 58 1694 or 33 6649.

Wright: Pivot decision soon MEMBER for Capricornia Keith Wright said this week the Federal Government was still considering Pivot Group's environmental impact statement for Shoalwater Bay and a decision would be made some time in September. "If the environmental impact statement lacks integrity then the decision should be `no' but if it is a fair and proper environmental assessment of the impact of the mining proposal, then it should not be unnecessarily hindered," Mr Wright said.

Church to start by Christmas A CHURCH of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints branch will be established on the Capricorn Coast before Christmas. The branch, based in Yeppoon, will include the coastal area and hinterland with meetings at the CWA hall on Sunday afternoons. A branch consists of an appointed president, councillors, children's and youth organisations, women's and men's sections. A women's section has been meeting in Yeppoon over the past two years. The formation of the new branch also includes two missionaries. It is the first time Mormon missionaries have been based and will live on the Capricorn Coast. Missionaries leave their homes for two years to share their religious beliefs. They save and work to pay their own way and are not allowed to work while on missions. Elder Cory Thomson from Utah, USA, has been in Australia one year and transferred from Ipswich to the new branch on the Coast. Elder Danny Mose, a Samoan from New Zealand, has transferred from Townsville after 15 months in Australia. Elders Thomas and Mose have organised a street display in front of the A K Findlay, James Street, building today (Friday) and tomorrow from 10am. The stall will also be manned by other missionaries from Rockhampton. The display of posters, free pamphlets and books is for Capricorn Coast residents to meet the new Mormon missionaries.

Writer's query I RECENTLY received my rates notice for a block of land I own in Emu Park. I noticed a large increase and on examining it more closely I discovered it had a S67 sewerage charge tacked on it. Now, to the best of my knowledge, there was and still is no such service so I rang Livingstone Shire Council concerning the charge. ' They told me that in three or four years sewerage was to be connected but until that time the ratepayers will pay half the charge to re-pay a loan council took out for the project. How can we be expected to pay for a service that doesn't exist yet. At S67 for each six months for three or four years, that is a lot of money. I am an invalid pensioner and I find it hard to, afford the exorbitant rates as it is. I couldn't waste S67 on anything for myself unless I absolutely needed it. I feel that my thoughts on this matter will be reflected by other ratepayers in Emu Park.

Council seeks two trainees TWO young Capricorn Coast residents have the opportunity to work at Livingstone Shire Council under the Australian Traineeship Scheme. Council employed Tammy Dean under the scheme in mid 1987 and Ursula Edwards in December 1987. "Another girl trained with us, but has since left the area," shire accountant Denis Murphy said. The girls were trained in the Local Government section of the traineeship scheme. "We are looking for two more young people to be trained under the same section. "One will be trained in the computer services section of the finance department and the other will learn general office duties in the same department." Any young person interested in applying for the jobs must go to the CES in Yeppoon or Rockhampton and ask about the traineeship positions vacant at Livingstone Shire. "They must not apply to council. The application must be through the CES office," Mr Murphy said. "Contact should be made with the CES at least by Wednesday, September 6. "It is the first time a local person has been offered the opportunity to be trained and then work in the EDP (electronic data producing) field here on the CoaSt. "EDP covers mapping, records management, office automation and financial systems. "Council would have the biggest computer operated business on the Coast and some young resident has the chance to learn, work and stay on here instead of having to move away. "The traineeship scheme is giving local people the chance to gain skills in their own area and it meanswe won't have to look outside the shire for employees in that section."

DISASTER struck Yeppoon Scout Group on the weekendwhen a grass fire burned out their weekend camp at Mt Wheeler. The 12 boys and their two leaders were on a hike around Mt Wheeler when informed by a passer-by their camp was on fire. They managed to stop the fire from spreading to a nearby property owned by Chad and Pat Dungey. The scouts lost uniforms, two large scout tents, sleeping bags, personal clothing, backpacks, scout equipment, ropes, utensils and cooking equipment in the fire. "We have estimated the loss at about S7000," Yeppoon Scout Group chairman Shane Steele said. "The boys and their leaders were left with only what they were wearing. Scout leader Brett Odell said the equipment had been built up over a number of years and had mostly been funded by Yeppoon community generosity. "The loss of so much equipment is a blow to the leaders and scouts. We have to look for-

In these times of ravel disruptions...

John Coutts...he made you feel good to be alive JOHN COUTTS, 27, the man who gave the Capricorn Coast smiling driving licences, was buried on Saturday ... and mourners turned out in full force to pay their last respects. His funeral was an emotional event attended by so many people from all walks of life that mourners spilled out of the Sacred Heart Church into the garden. His accidental death last week at Proserpine, killed by a loader, shocked everyone. News of his death spread quickly on Friday morning and a sense of loss was immediately evident. There was a general feeling of sadness that such a "boner boy," such a "nice bloke," such a "happy fellow," had died. John Coutts was one man who was loved by everyone he met. His smile was infectious. His booming voice was always cheerful. He had a variety of jobs in and around Yeppoon and came into contact with almost everyone at some time. Working at Yeppoon Police Station until just a month ago, John was responsible for photographing drivers for their licences. Father Noel Milner, who officiated at Sacred Heart Church on Saturday morning, s aid John's happy manner and sense of humour had resulted in everyone's licence having a smiling picture ... "it must be the only town where so many licences have smiling faces". Stories about John Coutts abound ... and every story is funny. He spread smiles. He spread a feeling that it was good to be alive. John Coutts will be missed by his young friends who rode their motor-cycles in tribute to his own prowess; by older people who, like the younger ones, openly wept at his funeral ... and by his family who knew John better than any of us. Perhaps this statement by a leading citizen best sums up John's life ... "I never heard anyone speak against him".

Lions offer $6 to children who buy a cycling helmet YEPPOON Lions will give S6 to every schoolage cyclist who buys a safety helmet from today until a date to be announced in the New Year President Don Knowles said club members were concerned about cyclists riding their machines in ever-increasing traffic without protective head gear. "The safety helmets are an essential piece of equipment for cyclists, as much as brakes and reflectors," Mr Knowles said. "Considering a helmet can save a cyclist from maiming for life, or death, they are an inexpensive item ... and the Lions' S6 cash-back offer is designed to make them even more affordable." Yeppoon Lions' 56 offer is open to Capricorn Coast children attending Byfield, Farnborough, Sacred Heart and Yeppoon Primary Schools and St Ursula's, St Brendan's and Yeppoon High Schools. Mr Knowles said these were the schools covered by the Yeppoon Lions Club district. He issued a challenge to Emu Park Lions to match or make a better offer to children at-

tending Keppel Sands, Coowonga, Cawarrai, Mt Chalmers and Emu Park Primary Schools. The first hand-over of the S6 to new helmet owners will be held at Saturday, September 16, when the Lions, together with Yeppoon Police, hold a Bicycle Safety Day. Mr Knowles said he would have further details on where the Bicycle Safety Day will be held next week. "Parents or children buying a safety helmet from today (Friday, September 1) must ensure the helmet is manufactured to the correct Australian standards and keep their purchase receipt for the S6 cash-back," he said. The Lions have embarked on the S6 offer without knowing how much they will have to give away ... but no-one is worrying. "The more money we give away the greater number of cyclists who will be protected against crippling head injuries," Mr Knowles said. As well as the Cycle Safety Day on September 16, others will be held in December and January.

P.O. Box 166, Yeppoon, 4703. They can also be left at Brian Hooper Real Estate or at the Information Centre. 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 off the principal as well." (The CCTO made $1000 payments from early this year until the annual general meeting and paid only S158 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

THE Capricorn Coast has responded magnificently ... in just three weeks, 65 people have come forward and offered to pay $5 a week of the CCTO Information Centre. That means the Capricorn Coast Mirror's appeal to pay off the CCTO's Information Centre is twothirds subscribed ... a total of 100 pledges (and cheques) are needed. Cheques already paid in now total $6970 and an additional 15 pledges this week, to a total of 65, means a total of 533,800 has been pledged against the Information Centre debt. Because of cheques that have already been paid in, plus one $1000 CCTO monthly payment that has been recorded, the debt now stands at S46,036.70. That's a long way down from the S54,800 balance at the start of this financial year. CCTO chairman Brian Hooper, and CCTO management committee members, have been contacting other businesses but as always, time is short because each person has their own business to look after. It would help if donors sent cheques to CCTO,


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 35 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 Newsagency — Ian & Colleen Graham — paid $260. • Capricorn Cabs —PW&SC Denning —paid $260. • Maguire & Associates Solicitor — Tom Maguire — paid $65. • Brian Hooper Real Estate — Brian Hooper — paid $260. • BP Yeppoon - Russell and Judy Sait - paid - $260. • Yeppoon Video Centre and Yeppoon Computer Centre - Colin and Barbara Driscoll - paid $100. • Hacienda Units - Bill and Dell Mackie - paid

commerce in Emu Park and Rockhampton, where common business objectives could be set. "Topics such as this need input from members," Mr Jackson said. "It's no use a few people coming up with ideas if the bulk of members aren't interested or don't have any input. "The chamber is for all business people ... not just the people who accept executive positions." Promoting.Coast businesses is a topic that Mr Jackson wants to create a lot of discussion. "Do we hold a Trade Fair? Do we hold a different type of fair? Whatever we decide, we have to decide who is going to be responsible," he said. "If we decide to back a project we must follow through and ensure that what we do becomes a successful promotion for Coast businesses." There will be further discussion on the Pineapple Festival, increasing membership, possible guest speakers for the future, the chamber's sign in Beaman Park and any other business members address. "This is the first meeting for the new executive and it needs support from Coast business people," Mr Jackson said. "Everyone will have their chance to have their say because this chamber operates for Coast businesses. "The objective is to increase business and business opportunities on the Coast. That objective needs the attention of the present business people."

Full bowls day Swans A grade and Reserves Scenic course to ,and a cent sale minor for semis attract runners INDOOR bowlers from Mt Morgan and Yeppoon joined Singing Ship Indoor Bowls Club members on Sunday for a full day of triples bowls and a cent sale. The day's proceeds, S350, went to the Capricorn Coast Blue Nursing Service. "We thank the visiting bowlers for their support and also Millroys Store, Emu Park ESSO and Greens Hardware for their donations," Singing Ship Indoor Bowls Club publicity officer Iris Smith said. The winners were Harold Dobby, Nancy Luxmore and Syd Wall. Runners up: S Bond, K Degraff and Billie Sinclair. Sportsman's prize went to Ruby Gray, Bev Farrow and Iris Smith. The fruit raffle was won by Bill Cole of Mt Morgan and Phil Morris of Emu Park was the winner of the petrol raffle. Second prize, a hand-knitted jumper, was won by Charlie Stratford of Emu Park. Another round in the cock and hen of the walk was played, with Trevor Gardner defeating Lloyd Stewart and Avis Mallory defeating Esme Johnson. Saturday, tomorrow, is meeting day starting at 1pm followed by the usual afternoon of bowls. The club plays on Tuesdays and Saturdays from 1.30pm in the Emu Park Cultural Hall.

SWANS A grade and Reserves both end home and away matches as minor premiers and both go into semi-finals at Stenlake Park against Wandal on Sunday, September 3. The boys beat Parkana 22-16-148, 8-7-55. It was a pleasing aspect to see the boys back playing as a team and playing great run-on football and direct passes from one to another. It was hard to pick better players but David Bibby played his best game for the year, well supported by Mark Taylor, Lank Lacy, Steve Lauritz, Nic Basham, coach Steve Burns and David Chapman until injured. Chapman played a great game and everyone was upset when he left the ground after a severe knock which later proved to be a broken jaw and collar bone. All will be relieved to know he is on the mend now carrying 'plates' in his jaw. He'll be there cheering the team along in the finals. The A Grade goal kickers were David Bibby 4, Troy Tomkins and Steve Lauritz 3, Aaron Thompson, Dale Wetzler, Marty Kavanagh and Nic Basham each kicked two and Danny Bromley, Greg Williams, Rod Chapman and Bryan Cruikshank 1. The Mug and Hogue and Browne award

went to David Bibby, Pacific dinner for two went to Steve Lauritz, The Annies Pies award went to Mark Taylor and the Murphs Sight 'n Sound award went to Les Lacy. It was a great game by the reserves winning 16-10-106 to Parkana 3-1-19. Robin Masek was an inspiration to the team and supporters alike with his talk and encouragement. JR played a good game again and was ably supported by Sean Chamberlain and Russel Frew. Seven goals by Brett Lord saw him leader of the league ladder in goal kicking at the end. The reserves goal kickers were Brett Lord 7, Russell Frew 3, Sean Chamberlain and Mark Van Gestel each kicked two goals and Robin Masek and Mark Wetzler each kicked one goal. The mug award went to Sean Chamberlain, Pacific dinner for two went to John Heathcote, Kristins haircut went to Robin Masek and the Bay Vacationer award went to Russell Frew. Semi-finals will be played on Sunday, September 3, (note change from Saturday) against Wandal at Stenlake Park, reserves at 12.45pm and A grade at 2.30pm.

THE ninth annual Emu Park Village Circuit is on Sunday September 17. The 8.2km scenic course winds through the Emu Park hills from 8am and runners from throughout Central Queensland are expected. "Because the Village Circuit is held during the school holidays there are usually quite a few visiting runners from all areas of Australia." organiser Bev Laundry said. The 1989 sponsors are Barry Laundry, AMP with the proceeds going to the nearly completed Don Ireland Swimming Pool Complex. To satisfy as many people as possible, organisers have continued the fun walk. It is over the same 8.2km circuit and starts half an hour before the runners. "The beach fun run starts at 9am. It is a 4km return jog along Fisherman's Beach and is planned as a family activity." Nominations for the fun run is S4 and beach run, Sl. Timed results are issued to all finishers in the fun run. Categories in the 8.2km Village Circuit: first male; first female; male 18-34; female 18-34; male 35-44; female 35-44; male 45 and over; female 45 and over; male 60 and over; female 60 and over; junior male 17 and under; junior female 17 and under; male team of four; female team of four; fun walker.

YIBC well placed for victory in this year's RDIBA winter fixtures ROCKHAMPTON and District Indoor Bowls Association winter fixtures is one of the oldest competitions conducted by the association. Yeppoon Indoor Bowling Club first contested this event in 1970 and was successful in taking out the trophy at the first attempt. Originally for teams of six, the fixture is now competed for by teams of four from association affiliated clubs in Rockhampton and district. Nineteen years later, YIBC has had many successes in this and other association-sponsored events. This year, prospects have never looked brighter for the club to take out yet another winter fixtures. YIBC has two teams entered in this year's winter fixtures - number one team comprising Vi Robson, Mavis Brown, May Brickett and Cec Brown and number two comprising Ken, Lois Brackett, Arthur and Bonnie Atcheson. While no one team has had mixed fortunes, the Brackett and Atcheson combination have had a perfect run, winning all seven games so far played. In the interim, this fours combination have been successful in winning the Rock Fours and last Sunday were in top position in the CQ Open Fours championship, receiving a forfeit and winning their three remaining games 10-6, 10-11, 11-10.

This should put this combination at the top to emulate the winning performance of the 1970 team. The final of the winter fixtures will be played in Rockhampton at association headquarters next Saturday night September 9. YIBC has two teams in the MacNevin Shield which will be played in the Association Hall in Rockhampton on Wednesday, September 20. This fixture is club nominated and further teams are invited to nominate. The John Black Trophy will be played on Wednesday, September 27, for club nominated teams of six, and nominations are invited from YIBC members. This will also be played in Rockhampton. Callide Valley visit YIBC on Sunday, September 24, to play the second game for 1989 in Ye Olde Davis Cup fixture, which is an annual encounter between YIBC and the Valley. YIBC will visit Rockhampton clubs St Mary and Koongal on Wednesday night, September 20. Names are on the board. Residents' afternoon will be held on Sunday October 1, when members and visitorswill play for trophies given by YIBC president Bernie Robson. Because this is a bowls barbecue afternoon and numbers are required for catering purposes, the book will be opened on Wednesday, Ssytember 13. Please place your name in the book if you are attending.

Junior basketball SUNDAY's under 8s junior basketbi. game saw some of the more timid players becoming involved in the action. Especially notable were Ellen O'Rourke, who had several jump balls, and Melanie Elstob, who displayed good control when dribbling and attempted many shots at goal. Great work girls! Damien Barry played another good game, participating in many jump balls with some thoughtful "tap outs". There was some excellent catching and passing by Julia Whitehead and Mathew Kelso (who also made many unsuccessful attempts to score). Another of the tiniest players, Damien Walter, made up for his lack of height with a lot of enthusiasm. Although many players made attempts at goal, Liam Farr was the only scorer for the game. In the under lOs game, Gavin Walter showed fine style when dribbling down the court and intercepting passes. He was successful in scoring two goals. Jody Bromley's game is shaping up well. Playing for only the second time, she displayed good ball handling skills when dribbling and passing. An energetic game was played by Ben Newmann who covered the court quickly and managed some good steals from the opposing team. Well controlled passing by Chris Novak and David Harbeck helped the game to flow nicely. David was also involved in several jump balls which was an indication of his enthusiastic participation. Other scorers for the game were Owen Kelso 2, Alexander Sykes 2, Michr Whitehead 4 and Chris O'Rourke 8. Persistence finally paid off for Grant McCombe last week when he scored his first goal in the under 12s. He was also noted for his improved dribbling when moving the ball down the court - a really good effort Grant. Fiona Cummings played a great game scoring three goals and rebounding well under the opposition's ring. The game moved quickly and there were some good ball intercepts, especially by Chris O'Rourke and Kim Jackson. Kim's thoughtful play resulted in her scoring two goals. It was the first game for Shannon Balsys, who didn't take long to become involved in the fun. The other scorers for the game were Leigh Williams and Gavin Walter. Game times for next week: under 8s play at 1pm; under lOs play at 2pm and the under 12s play at 3pm. New players always welcome.

THE mighty Emu Park Emus' magnificent debut season came to an end in Sunday's Rockhampton Rugby League preliminary final when they were defeated by Yeppoon Seagulls by the narrowest of margins - 18 points to 17. The Emus fell foul of inexperience and nerves after hitting an early lead through a Kirk Doak field goal. With Dutchie Holland again calling the shots, that evergreen fullback big Terry Hansen was able to crash over the black dot to give the gulls a 6-1 lead. Emu Park then suffered a setback when form forward, big Zilzie pig farmer Bret Svendsen, succumbed to an injury received in last weekend's hard fought major semi-final and was replaced by Gavin Tydd. Yeppoon hit a purple patch and with the assistance of some ordinary Park defence were able to score two more tries in a matter of minutes. Both tries were scored in the corner. The Emu Park team then clawed their way back into the game. Ably led by Captain Courageous Matt Trims and his younger brother Brad, who was outstanding in the defence department, the Park decided to play the game in the Yeppoon end of the ground. With minutes remaining to the half-time, the Emus' wingman Jan Slotasch swooped on a spilt ball and sprinted 20 metres to score the Park's first try near the corner. Kirk Doak, who was battling a corked thigh, added the valuable extras to make the score at the break 14 points to 7. Supercoach Anderson steadied the ship at half-time with some quiet words of wisdom and he left no doubt as to what the team would do in the second stanza to obtain victory over the old foe. Fifteen minutes into the half the Emus gained their first sniff of a victory when Captain Trimms, who by this time was flying on a wing and a prayer, threw a perfect overhead pass to the burly Goodefellowwho then beat the cover defence to score near the corner posts. Doak failed with the conversion attempt but by now there was only three points between both teams. Yeppoon fought back into the Emus territory and with the tackle count on five and the ruck set only four metres from the Park's try line, big 'Willow' fouled everybody by playing the ball forward through the legs of the defence and won the race to the ball to touch down for a valuable four pointer. The conversion attempt was unsuccessful but the Seagulls had now stretched the lead to 7 points with 10 minutes remaining. Gavin Tydd, who makes a good habit of scoring late tries near the posts, reproduced the magic again and with Doak's conversion the score was 18 points to 17 causing the many vocal supportersto raise the pitch of their support a few decibles. Unfortunately for the mighty Emus the fulltime hooter sounded and that was the ballgame. It was a case of a few minutes more and maybe a different result.

• ABOVE:EnuisVason Witt ran with the ball in the semi final game between ,Yeppoon and Emu Park on Sunday. But as it is at this time of all football seasons, ifs, should ofs, gunnas and buts don't count ... it's the score on the board at full-time. Congratulations to Dutchie and the boys and we wish you well in your Grand Final on Sunday. For the Parkies, the best players were the baby of the team, Brad Trims; brother Matt; Kent Svendsen; big Warren Reid; Gavin Tydd and Jan and Ginger Slotasch. Although the Emus lost the game they will be a lot better team for it is because there is no better tutor than that thing called experience. Special mention should also be given to the club's first coach, Jack 'The Myth' Anderson, who steered the boys through their oceans of troubled waters. It was a job well done. It must be mentioned that as little as eight months ago, Rockhampton League had not heard of Emu Park Rugby League and within a period of seven months they had taken the undisputed favourites, Etna Creek Diehards, to an 18-all draw in the major semi-final then backed up to lose by only one point to a fresh Yeppoon side. It speaks volumes for the players, coach, committee and supporters who took part in the first year. The club thanks our sponsors, Pine Beach Hotel, Kerrie and Ron at Emu Park ESSO, Anita and Gary at Emu Park Bakery. One should not also forget the great volunteerwork carried out by the Emu Park Leagues Club staff, namely Lee, Jack, Jane and Bruce and all the others who assisted throughout the season. They made the after match celebrations that little bit extra.

CAPRICORN Coast basketball and Hungry Jacks brought leading sports coach Peter Pendle to the Coast on Friday in the latest of a line of quality coaching for basketballers in 1989. "The Capricorn Coast is going ahead and we intend to offer every opportunity available to our younger generation to achieve their sporting potential," publicity officer and president Don Willoughby said. "Peter Pendle is one of Queensland's leading sporting coaches. He not .only deals with basketball but consults for other groups, such as the Brisbane Broncos. "He was unstinting in his praise of our juniors and they really soaked up all he had to offer." Mr Willoughby praised the association's management committee this week. "They have taken basketball on the Coast from nothing, two-and-a-half years ago, to one of the major sporting groups with over 200 players. "It seems lately there is no shortage of people offering advice on better ways of running the competition, particularly concerning the juniors," he said. "Perhaps some of these people would like to nominate for the formation of a junior subcommittee to operate junior and intermediate competition. "I do not doubt the management committee would appreciate the reduction of its workload. "We like to see parents involved, but perhaps we sometimes appear a little remote to them because of other commitments," Mr Willoughby said. "Regrettably it seems some parents are misled by rumours and we will call a general meeting for parents to discuss basketball juniors and the sport's future direction." All games are played at the Yeppoon State High School stadium. Sunday, September 3: 4pm Mighty Midgets v Phantoms, A and D Moore; 5pm C C Lakers v Thundercats, J Moody and R Caulfield; 6pm Wolfpac v Flames, J Moody and R Caulfield; 7pm Bombers v Hornets, J Christensen and S Stevenson; 8pm Zeros v Jets, L Thomas and S Stevenson.

Mixed day for 'gulls YEPPOON Seagulls had a mixed day of rugby league on Sunday when the reserve gradewon a close fought 18-17 battle over Emu Park and A grade succumbed to Fitzroys 22-18. Reserve grade came out with all guns blazing against Emu Park. Although the Emus drew first blood with a field goal to Doak, Yeppoon quickly answeredwith a crashing try to fullback Terry Hansen after great lead up work and switches of play by Garry Horstman and Dutchy Holland. With the conversion by Geoff Tanzer successful, Yeppoon soon bounced into attack again and a magnificent display of power forward play and deft off-loading. Second rower Jim Shackleton put winger Ian Hanlon in for another four-pointer. Yeppoon 10-1. Using the backline to great success and with quick hands and fine back-up by all players, Yeppoon was soon deep inside Emus' territory. A long cut out pass by Holland put winger Hanlon in for his second try. Geoff Tanzer also missed this conversion attempt to put the scoreline at Yeppoon 14, Emu Park 1. With only a couple of minutes to half time, Emu Park was attacking when a seemingly blatant knock-on went unnoticed by the referee. This allowed winger Jan Slotosch to cross in the corner for Emu Park with the Yeppoon defence laying off, waiting for the whistle. Halftime score was Seagulls 14, Emu Park 7. Emu Park came out scoring in the second half and with strong forward play and a better kicking game, managed to cross over wide out with a try to Goodfellow. Doak's missed attempt brought the scores to 14-11. Emu Park put on full steam and battered away

at a tiring but valiant Yeppoon offensive line. A brilliant, bustling 70m effort by big centre Steven Williamson was just the tonic Yeppoon needed. A couple of nicks later Williamson again toed the ball forward from a play the ball and dived on it for a try and a seven point buffer. With five minutes left, Gavin Tydd brushed through the defence to score under the sticks and with Kirk Doak converting, it was 18-17. The last few minutes saw what finals' football is all about, with dropped balls and pressure passes becoming the mode. The siren saw the game go to Yeppoon by one point. The A grade match was a game of catch-up all day for the Seagulls. Fitzroys scored early through centre Troy White with the first of his four try haul. Another break by Warcon, close to the ruck, saw White in again with both conversions unsuccessful. Fitzroys led 8-0.. Yeppoon forwards started to combine better and with Wayne Alberts becoming more involved with a cleaver run down the blind side, he put Don Cameron in the corner for a much needed try. A fabulous kick from the sideline by 'Radar boots' Steve Stafford brought the scoreline back to Fitzroys 8, Yeppoon 6. Fitzroys backs again found holes and with great hands and an extra touch of speed, Troy White made it a treble of tries and a half-time scoreline of 14-6. More tenacity in defence and attack was needed and found by the Seagulls in the second half. A well rehearsed forward move produced a fine try to replacement forward Darren Cooper. Stafford's goal put Yeppoon back in the match at 14-12. Brilliant attack and bone-jarring defence became the order of the day from both sides. A suspect off-side play from White saw him recover a Warcon chip through from out of Don Cameron's hands to make it four in a row. Another try to fullback Priestly saw Fitzroys seem to have the game in hand at 22-14. With only minutes left, Alberts spotted an opening and sent an inside pass to Cooper for his second try. Stafford added the extras and Yeppoon gave everything to score that elusive extra try. On the siren, a bomb by captain Paul Grant saw 13 hungry Yeppoon players scramble for the ball, but to no avail. Final score: Fitzroys 22, Yeppoon 18. A grade mug went to Steve Stafford; Strand dinner for two, Andrew Schick. Reserve grade mug, Mick Stafford; Pacific dinner for two, Jim Shackleton. The reserve grand final is against Etna Creek Diehards on Sunday at 1pm.

DON KNOWLES is a dentist, was a tiecutter (and will no doubt return to the job as soon as the right tie comes along) and, among other things, Yeppoon Lions Club president. One of the "other things" is a cyclist and he's often seen pedalling his way through the town ... without a safety helmet. This same Don Knowles, wearing his Lions "hat" (not cycle helmet) has launched a S6 cash-back offer for school children who buy a Cycle Safety Helmet from today until some time to be fixed in the New Year. Don was well aware of the likelihood of head injuries in cycle accidents and, long ago, bought helmets for his two children who ride bicycles ... but none for himself. Maybe the club's campaign will make him buy one for himself and maybe not ... but I'll bet this item costs him a fine from an alert Lion at the next club • • • meeting!!! DOGS, dog problems, and more dog problems were the flavour of the week at the Capricorn Coast Mirror following last week's page-one story on Livingstone Shire Council's dog by-laws. There were an interesting array of phone calls about dogs and associated dog problems. One woman was concerned that her dog would be considerer' a pest for barking but the fault lay not with-- her dog but with the cat over the road that likes to annoy her dog. The cat apparently struts its stuff outside the fence and drives the dog into a frenzy of barking. Anyone who doubts this should drop down to Kinka Beach where Suzy's cat (named Cat), a muscular beast with perfect tiger markings, claws to match (which he sharpens on a door jamb) and the hide of an elephant pops over the road to do over a neighbour's dog whenever he feels in the mood. Cat terrorises this poor dog (a chihuahua) but, usually, the dog doesn't bark back ... it's too busy fighting off Cat to utter a sound!!! • • • THEN there's the Yeppoon woman who recalled a crackdown on dogs last year that left her with a baker's dozen of pups, still with their eyes closed, and no mother to nurse them. The 13 pups must have been driving their mum up the wall but the moment she chose to take a break from them coincided with a visit from the council dog catcher. Anyway, this woman returned home to find the 13 pups making whatever noise 13 pups make when they can't find their mother. She was frantic. She looked everywhere for the pups' mum and finally had to give up the search to feed the pups with an eyedropper. Apparently the warming of the milk, the search for an eyedropper, the noise from the pups and the general feeling of worry about the pups' mum must have reminded her of the 4am feeds with her own children. There was no way she could cope with 13 whimpering pups. Finally, and it's always the last thing, she thought of the dog catcher. She rang the council's emergency number and, / and behold, the pups' mum was behind bars/ ... but no-one had a key to release her. With the thought of a new round of 4am feeds staring her in the face she used lateral thinking and packed the dogs into a box and headed for the council pound. There, with wire between her and freedom from the by now frantic pups, she worked out that if she lay down on the ground she could make a hole big enough to pass the pups through to their mum. She scooped away at the dirt until the hole was big enough ... and said goodbye to the pups, and their mother. The next day, when the council asked her what she wanted to do with them, she said theywere no longer her responsibility ... council had them, it could keep them!!! • • • SOFTIES are useless in the newspaper game ... Rhodes had to go to the pound on Tuesday to photograph some pups. While there, he found a beautiful, black Labrador pup, just nine weeks old ... and it was due to die on Wedn6:lay. He rushed back to the office to announce he was going to buy the pup ... and learned that two dogs at home already, plus the new pup, was one more than allowed under the by-laws. Hard-bitten Mirror staff joked about how soft Rhodes was ... that his jobwas to get a good pic of the pups so at least they could be spared. While .this was going on, Suzy, the toughest of them all, was on the phone to the Capricorn Coast equivalent of "Amnesty International for dogs" and askin this even softer woman wouldn't she like lovely nine-weeks-old black Labrador pup that was a prisoner of council and set down to die on Wednesday. The last "Old Baldy" heard, Suzy's plea had been successful ... but he didn't want to check it out because he might actually see the dog; then he would have brought it home!!!
