Chamber to light up Yeppoon


YEPPOON shopping centre should be blaze of coloured lights and illuminated trees this Christmas following a Capricorn Coast Chamber of Commerce and Industry decision on Tuesday night to underwrite the cost of party lights. The chamber decided to underwrite the cost, up to $4000, of coloured lighting that will stretch from the beachfront to Savemore. Discussions will be held between a chamber delegation and Livingstone Shire Council's Tourism and Development Committee later this month to sort out details. Chamber member John Watson suggested the chamber's proposed $50 membership charge would meet an unenthusiastic reception unless business people could see something for their money. He said the chamber had talked for years of the need for coloured lighting to dress up the business centre and beachfront but nothing was ever done about it. Floodlights should also be bought to illuminate pine trees from the ground and create a fairyland atmosphere that visitors would want to photograph. He suggested business people would most likely join up and pay the $50 membership fee if they understood their contribution was directly funding coloured lighting in front of their store. The chamber must insist that any lighting purchased was bought from a Coast business. Andrew McLelland said it would be better for the chamber to bite the bullet and underwrite the cost of lighting, up to $4000, then undertake a membership drive to recover the

money. Chamber members unanimously adopted the proposal. Tourism and Development Committee chairman Cr Mike Prior, who attended the meeting, said council would probably support the chamber's move because it was a selfhelp scheme. Chamber members told him they wanted to lighting to be a permanent fixture and for council pay the electricity costs. The chamber has the money to pay for the lighting but wants to recover the cost from shop owners, in the form of membership subscriptions, so that it can move ahead with other ideas to promote the town. Following a suggestion from Lyle Spyve, of CK Motors, the chamber will also look at some way of decorating the Tanby Road area but the main shopping area will be the first for the dressing up. In a meeting that covered a wide variety of topics, not all on the agenda, members heard from Crs Prior and Brian Dorey of a suggestion by Cr Kevin Hinz to solve the problem of signs in the street. Cr Hinz suggested council inyestigate setting up street furniture such as substantial pots for trees, shrubs and flowers in front of business premises. The pots would have provision for small advertising signs which could be removed at night. Business people could place their signs on the furniture in the morning without fear that shoppers would walk into them and injure themselves. This has been a bone of contention between council and business people because the coun-

cil recently called on shop owners to take out insurance policies to indemnify themselves against people being injured. The business people, led by the chamber of commerce, refused to sign waivers the council issued to protect itself. The chamber said it would be cheaper for the council to take out a blanket cover for third party injuries in the street rather than each business buying its own. The street furniture suggestion met a fairly enthusiastic response, although there were reservations about the cost that shop owners might face. Cr Dorey said he would be circulating among Normanby Street shop owners this week to gauge their interest. In a discussion on a similar matter, the chamber learned there was no definite plan within Livingstone Shire Council for a mall in Normanby Street. A mall has been talked about for years and it recently became a topic of conversation when it was again suggested at a council meeting. But the two councillors said there was no definite timetable to set up a mall, no definite design for a mall, absolutely nothing definite about it. Cr Dorey said any mall talk should be shelved until a traffic study, now being undertaken, was completed. It was learned this would take at least until the end of this financial year. Chamber members were emphatic any mall proposal should be the subject of a public meeting involving the people affected before any decision was made.

PINEAPPLE Queen Alicia Emery will be offered a position as the first Capricorn Coast Chamber of Commerce and Industry Courtesy Maid. During a discussion on how the chamber could collect membership subscriptions from business people, John Watson suggested it appoint a Courtesy Maid who could advise shoppers where to find the items they sought over the Christmas holiday period. He said the Pineapple Festival had already gone to the trouble of interviewing likely applicants and had chosen Alicia Emery as Pineapple Queen. She could be offered the position on a contract basis. Her duties could involve not only advising shoppers and visitors but also calling on business people and collecting chamber subscriptions. It was resolved to invite her to discuss the position with chamber president John Jackson and John Watson. While only a proposal at this stage, the idea for a Courtesy Maid could provide the Coast with extra publicity and an image as a holiday area. There were suggestions as to the type of uniform the Courtesy Maid should wear but further discussion will need to be held before a decision is made. Also, the title Courtesy Maid was only a suggestion that could be changed should a better title be suggested.

Bell Park needs survey COUNCILLORS were told at the September meeting the boundaries of the Bell Park Caravan Park needed to be determined by an identification survey. Shire clerk Jim Brown said the survey was also needed to establish the extent of the erosionprone area. "This will also identify what area of the road reserve should be closed," he said. "Similarly, a report on the works needed to upgrade the existing older amenities block is required. "These surveys and reports will be available for the October meeting, along with draft specification for the calling of lease/development tenders. This same data would be a pre-requisite to any in-house development of the facility."

School cops drain costs YEPPOON State High School's Parents and CitizensAssociation was refused the waiving of extra drainage costs incurred in the building of the assembly hall. Livingstone Shire Council, at the September meeting, said it was unable to accede to the association's request because of budgetary constraints, but S15,000 had been allocated for kerbing and channelling of Tabone Street. The school's footpath will be upgraded.


A LIVINGSTONE Shire Council report on the potential for sale of land at Cawarral has been deferred until October in order that the matter may be properly addressed. Shire clerk Jim Brown said there was a need to carry out identification surveys on the 13 blocks in the township to allocate boundaries exactly. There is also a land-locked allotment north of the school which needs to be identified and to have access clarified. Council voted to have the area surveyed.

COUNCILLORS rejected an offer from the Central Queensland Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to take unclaimed dogs from the council pound. The CQSPC advised council of its willingness to accept unclaimed dogs from the pound on the basis of council paying it an amount equivalent to the cost of having the dogs put down. The recommendation, that the offer be declined, was accepted by councillors.

DENIS ACHIEVES... North-western wall for Rosslyn Bay Harbour

IN September 1986 as a candidate for Broadsound, I attended a meeting of harbour users, who were concerned at the poor state of the harbour, including broken and congested wharves, fishing trawlers bogged in the mud and a general state of neglect. With the then Harbours and Marine Minister Martin Tenni, I committed the State Government to an immediate Si million upgrade, including new wharves and dredging, and the future construction of a north western wall, to provide a silt-free, deep safe anchorage for all harbour users. Today the new wharves are constructed, the harbour is dredged and the northwestern wall is nearing completion at a further Government input of $4.6 million. This is being constructed in partnership with Keppel Gateway Ltd, who will grace our harbour with a $25 million, 350 berth marina and tourism complex. Rosslyn Bay Harbour will be the focal point for tourism in Central Queensland - a commitment honoured - a Broadsound achievement.

YEPPOON Police Station is undermanned according to Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton and he has called on Police Minister Vince Lester to increase its numbers. "The station is manned by two detectives, water police has two men and the uniform section has a sergeant and five constables," Mr Hinton said. "After representations, I managed to have the other detective allocated to the station. "The station is undermanned and this has created a situation where the officers work long hours. It is also impossible for a full 24 hour service and effective patrolling," he said. "I have made the station's undermanning a priority and have sought immediate assistance from Mr Lester. "As a start the station will be upgraded and construction is expected to start in the near future." The upgrading of facilities has been costed at $300,000 and will include a twin dwelling residence to accommodate four single officers or two married couples, separate from the police station where they are now accommodated. "That area will then be used to house $50,000 worth of electronic equipment, including audio visual equipment and an interview room," Mr Hinton said. "There will be room for the driver's licence section and provision for the housing of water police. The station will incorporate the very latest in technology available to regional stations in Queensland." LABOR candidate for Broadsound Jim Pearce this week called on Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton to provide details of State budget allocations for Rosslyn Bay. "There has been a significant increase of public money allocated to the Rosslyn Bay Harbour," Mr Pearce said. "A break-water subsidy allocation of $3.546 million is in addition to previous expenditure of 81.54 million. "Mr Hinton constantly claims that $4.6 million would be spent on the harbour works but these latest figures suggest the real amount will be $5.086 million ... an increase of $486,000," he said. "Further to this, $85,000 has been allocated for boat harbour works. Mr Hinton must make it quit clear just what this extra money is to be used for. "The hand-out does not end there. Mr Hinton has to come up with Si million for roadworks between Kinka quarry and Rosslyn Bay. "A total of $6 million is being poured into the harbour and associated works. "Quite frankly, I am fed up with Mr Hinton's support for the Rosslyn Bay Marina. Average Queenslanders are missing out."

The ONLY change for the Better CONSERVATIONISTS OR GREENIES CONSERVATIONISTS throughout the Broadsound electorate will shudder when they read the following extract from Hansard. Statement by the now Premier Russell Cooper during debate Land Act Amendment Bill, April 1, 1987. "I'm afraid that some of the conservationists who must be referred to as greenies are very misguided. The Government knows that their emotions are played on by very skillful and cunning people. Undoubtedly a hell of a lot of them would have already made their quid from the system, and now they are in a position to deny the same to others. That is an extremely selfish attitude to adopt." Local member Mr Hinton is a member of the National Party Government in Queensland. He supported Mr Cooper in the removal of Mr Ahern as Premier. Authorised: Richard Witkiewicz, 19 Brock Cres. Dysart

CAPRICORN International Resort general manager Tomi Yamada told this week's Capricorn Coast Chamber of Commerce and Industry meeting the resort would fully back ideas suggested at Tuesday night's- meeting. He said he had been in Yeppoon since 1975 and there had been little change in the business centre. Proposals for coloured lights in the streets and illuminate pine trees were needed to give the town a holiday atmosphere. Mr Yamada said business people should back such schemes because they would have any contributions they made returned many times in long-term business growth. After hearing debate on lighting proposals, Mr Yamada said the resort had been criticised for slow growth but the same could be said of Yeppoon in the same period. He said beautification, such as had been proposed, was a step in the right direction .. "we can't do it all by ourselves," he said, referring to the beautification that had taken place at the resort. The resort could attract its own visitors but those people wanted to visit the nearby town to buy souvenirs and generally see the area. Visitors had told him the "town was quite good but not good enough to encourage them to visit again". In addition to lights, Mr Yamada suggested Yeppoon could be dressed up with flags flying from flagpoles, such as were seen at the resort. Also, th.e town could look at building a monument ... "something striking" He said Yeppoon should not look like a poor small town in the countryside. In Japan, chambers of commerce gave leadership ... Mr Yamada called on the Capricorn Coast Chamber of Commerce and Industry to do the same. More leadership was given in Japan by banks ... Mr Yamada said if small businesses

Enthusiastic crowd at EP social

ONCE again Emu Park Pensioners League September social was lovely. An enthusiastic crowd enjoyed a variety of entertainment starting with The Evergreens, accompanied by Win Nelson, singing a bracket of songs. George Cooper then entertained with mouth organ. Doreen and Chris Svensen were congratulated on 54 years of marriage. Win and Tony Ceff played the anniversary waltz in their honour. Doreen then took the stage for 'I'll be your Sweetheart' and 'Oh, you beautiful doll'. John Smyth sang 'Little Town in old County Down' and 'My Wild Irish Rose'. His lilting Irish tone is always well received. Joyce Buehow and Peg Stevens looked lovely and sang a pretty duet with 'Broken Doll' and 'The band played on'. Tony Ceff played 'Romona' on the violin ... he's a talented musician. Beverley Smyth and Carole Taylor did an impromptu 'You are my sunshine' and 'You made me love you'. Mrs Hall, 90 plus young, sang 'He'll have to go' and The old church choir'. Stan Nelson, Emu Park's tenor, was in good voice with 'Only a Rose' and 'Who can I turn to'. Following afternoon tea, prepared by the league's unsung women who turn up every month to make sandwiches and endless cups of tea, George Cooper returned for a different side to his talent ... a dancing skeleton act. Doreen Svensen was joined by Stan Nelson

PENSIONER REBATES PENSIONER electricity rebates have been increased from $6 to $8 by the State Government. "The pegging of electricity charges while inflation runs at eight per cent, means that in real terms the cost of electricity is falling by eight per cent per annum," Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton said.

for 'Roll out the barrel' and 'Lovely bunch of coconuts' ... an act that was a barrel of fun. John Smyth sang the haunting 'Danny Boy'.

ALP proposes sports loan fund ALP Shadow Tourism, Sport and Racing Minister Bob Gibbs is visiting the Capricorn Coast next week to speak to sporting bodies and the tourism industry. Broadsound candidate Jim Pearce said he had invited Mr Gibbs to return to the electorate to discuss tourism promotion and sporting facilities. "Mr Gibbs will be here on the Coast for three days and is having a meeting at 7.30pm on Tuesday, October 10 at the Keppel Bay Sailing Club," Mr Pearce said. "Sport and tourism promotion can work hand-in-hand. The provision of proper sporting facilities draws competitors, families, friends and spectators. "When they come to the Coast to participate in sport, we look after them and make them aware of what the Coast has to offer and then they will return," he said. "Labor is planning to establish a sporting bodies loan fund to provide loans to sporting

CAPRICORN Society of Arts raffle, a painting titled `Keppel Island Beach' by Marie Bayliss, for the Paint Pot GallerywasJ Thomas, 19 Yeats Avenue, Black-water. Paint Pot Gallery potter of the month is Cindi Birch. For the display Cindi has only Rakufired pots. Raku pottery is fragile and often completely non-functional. It is cracked and crackled, rough and smokey and sometimes, beautiful, but always interesting. The glazes are fired to about 1000 degrees celsius, taken out of the red-hot kiln and placed in sawdust which immediately bursts into flame. The sawdust is covered and a few minutes later the pot is dropped into cold water ... quite traumatic for pot and potter. Raku is Japanese for pleasure and a Raku pot should be just that ... a pleasure to look at and own. Besides Cindi's Raku corner, there is fine domestic stoneware exhibited by Coast potters at the aallery, as well as a variety of paintings, china planting, c woodturning and other crafts.

ervices you may need Hire TVs, Videos... and airconditioners! HAS your TV broken down, never to show another cops and robbers show? Like a Video recorder but just a bit short of the cash required? Have a talk to Les McDonald on 39 3133 and he'll explain the advantages of renting either a colour TV or a video ... or both. You can rent a used TV for just $27 a month or a used video for $27 a month. If you want a new TV or new video rental costs up to $40 a month. And that's all they cost ... the repairs are his problem! Because of the success of his TV and video rentals, Les is looking at expanding into renting airconditioners, microwave ovens, sound systems etc. Just think, Summer looks like being a hot one so renting an airconditioner would be a cheap way of keeping your cool. Minimum hire is for one month and, ifyou're having relatives in for the holidays who aren't used to the tropics, it could be just the shot to give them (and you) relief. Les would like to thank the many people who responded to his new $20 Video Cleaning Service ... it's keeping him, and his staff, busy (and ensuring your VCRs are in good order!).

No roads to cross to private beach SEASPRAY Waterfront Holiday Units, also known as Blossom's on the Beach, is the place for a relaxing holiday. You can let the kids wander freely because there's no traffic to worry about. It's right on the beach at Cooee Bay and the grounds invite you to spend an evening enjoying a barbecue while the waves dance on the shore just metres away. Phone Blossom or Brian Hooper (39 1421 or 39 3111) for bookings.

Castro's set to revolutionise eating habits! CASTRO'S, the new Bistro and Cafe on the left bank of Normanby St, will revolutionise eating habits on the Capricorn Coast. Tracy Hansen, the new owner, has given the old Studio One a facelift with black and white decor and will open the new-look. Castro's on Monday at 9am. Castro's serves at indoor and outdoor tables or offers takeaway. With that sort of a name, the business, obviously, intends serving coffee ... but don't think it's going to be a spoonful of instant coffee. Tracy will be serving freshlyground coffee in Plunger Pots, so you'll get a full measure of an aromatic brew! As an introuctory offer this week, you'll get a Pot of Plunger Coffee FREE with every order. But don't expect life to be easy ... when you try to choose your order for the free coffee you'll have to agonise over a menu full of taste bud-tempting treats. For instance, there's Herb Cheese Pate, Chicken Liver Pate, Homemade Quiche, Smoked Salmon Pottage or Crab Mousse in Avocado Halves ... and that's only the entrees! Perhaps you'd like to choose from the Main courses (all served with potatoes savonyarde and salad): Chicken in Green Peppercorn Sauce, Fettucine Carbonara, Eye Fillet with Demi Glace, Mustard Seeded Lamb Fillets, Garlic Prawns or Bugs with Lime and Honey. How about a sandwich or a burger? You have a choice of Leg Ham, Pastrami, Bacon, Prawns, Corned Beef, Fresh Salads, Vegetables, Avocado, Cheese or eggs. With the weather heating up, a salad (Greek, Potato, Avocado and Prawn, Coleslaw, Carrot and Rai-

sin) could be just what you're looking for. Then again, Home-made Icecreams and Sorbets are hard to beat in Summer ... especially when the flavours read like Nature's guide to good health.

Sea Jay Bass Barra...t e • oat you designed! THIS is the boat you, the boating public designed! All your complaints, hints, ideas, suggestions and requirements were considered in the design and this boat, the Bundaberg-built Sea Jay, is the result. Vince Welsh, of Cooee Bay Marine at 49 Tanby Road, (39 1675) was involved in the design ... and there lies a story. Vince and a whole heap of Evinrude dealers were recharging their batteries in Fiji after winning sales contests when the discussion topic around the pool turned to aluminium dinghies. There was general agreement that there was room for improvement in dinghy design ... and the dealers, the people who face the public with the manaufacturers' products, started nutting out what the perfect dinghy should have. The result was the 3.7m. and

4m. Sea Jay Bass/Barra aluminium boat. It has extra stiffeners, where they're needed and the strength is apparent to anyone who knows dinghies. It has seating that is not only in the right place for fishermen but also adds further strength. The boat has a flare and Vee that professional fishermen have admired and Vince reckons the boats sell themselves. What he likes is that he has a new product to sell at a price he can recommend. To get the word-of-mouth advertising working in his favour, he has priced the Sea Jay range from $1500 this week. There are so many features you have to see the boat; give it a thump; kick the trailer tyres, go for a run. But make sure you have your money with you ... you'll buy it!

Professionalism shows in all Choral Society productions YEPPOON Choral Society has been delighting Coast audiences with their productions for a long time, but the shows are never stale. Audiences return year after year to be entertained by a group of talented and enthusiastic amateurs who make each show as professional as they can. Costuming, sets, lighting, music and performances are always just right for each production. If you have just arrived on the Coast, or have put off seeing a Yeppoon Choral Society production ... don't this time. The Mikado is timeless and most people can hum or even sing a few bars of 'Tit-willow'. 'Three Little Maids from School' or 'A Wand'ring Minstrel I'. Yeppoon Town Hall is the venue. October 14, 19 and 21 are the dates and the curtain rises at 7.45pm. Tickets are available at Stewart and Brumm Chemists, and you maybe able to buy tickets at the door ... but don't leave it till then, you may miss out.

The costume committee of Mary Lindley, Dot Codd, Jan Gubbins and Judy-Ann Smith have created an enjoyable visual effect. One difficulty was the necessity for Japanesestyle wigs ... and you will see how well they have created hair-styles that suit The Mikado. The choral society has tried to make everything authentic and Arthur Lawn spent hours creating replicas of Japanese instruments. He used original woodcuts as guides and the results are really incredible.

The blooms are not cherry blossoms but beautifully hand-painted kimonos, screenprinted hangings and Gilbert and Sullivan's music. Thirty Coast residents have been rehearsing for months to present The Mikado to a hometown audience over three nights. The sets have been designed and created by Tom Wahlin-who doubles as Pooh-Bah - with typical Japanese simplicity. Coast artist and chorus member Gwen Lawn

TO produce a show like The Mikado, there has to be lots of background work, application, dedication and enthusiasm. Shirley Green and Betty McLucas, as musical director and assistant, have worked tirelessly at the twice-a-week rehearsals. They have been assisted by the society's two willing pianists ... Marie Ganter and Ann Cribb. This year's orchestra is a blend of experienced musicians and young and talented ones. Experienced players Leslie Levy (first violin and leader), Sr Kathleen Fanton (viola), Ann Cribb (cello), John Cribb (second violin), Fiona Sykes (flute) and Ursula Wilson (flute) combine with Linda Stewart (first violin), Tanya Buchholz (second violin), Fiona Pedwell (cello), Sue Matsen (clarinet) and Vanessa Grady (clarinet) to provide an entertaining overture and a well-disciplined and unobtrusive accompaniment. Ricki Robinson has lent his hand again for the lighting. He loves to be challenged ... not only does he execute the suggested lighting plot but he makes creative additions that add to the effect.

INTERPRETATION of some of the principal roles in The Mikado has undergone some changes since Yeppoon Choral Society presented it in 1980. Yum-Yum is played by Abigail Sawyer whose powerful soprano and mischievous acting style has created a fresh and delightful character. Betty McLucas as Katisha has received great success in previous choral society productions. She portrays the domineering and ruthless wife-to-be of Nanki-Poo with delight. The other 'two little maids from school' Joanne Gregson (Peep-Bo) and Sharyn Black (Pitti-Sing) - are ideally cast as the shallow,

mischievous and rather catty acquaintances of Yum-Yum. Tom Wahlin is at home as Pooh-Bah ... Lord High Everything Else. He has a natural sense of theatre and his whimsical portrayal is full of humour and surprises. The Mikado is powerfully performed by Jack Cochrane. He is cruel, sometimes witty and always flirtatious. The roles of two other principals - Nanki-Poo and Ko-Ko - are filled by the two actor-singers who performed them in the 1980 production ... Aub Pedwell and Duncan Stewart. Peter Green is Pish-Tush, as well as producer, and the show is sure to be a credit to him.

No parental help no surprise to basketball organisers CAPRICORN Coast Basketball organisers were not surprised when there were no parents prepared to form a junior sub-committee at a meeting called on Sunday. "The perennial suggestion that juniors play in strict age division - u/12, u/14 and u/16 and that girls and boys play in separate competitions - was again raised," publicity officer Don Willoughby said. "The committee is still of the view that with only 12 teams available, at this time it is impractical to operate six competition rounds, regardless of whatever other merits the suggestion may have. "It is possible that with a few more girls forming teams, Capricorn Coast Basketball may be able to operate an intermediate girls competition in September 1990. "This could set a basis for forming our first representative u/16 girls team next year," he said. "The current graded junior/intermediate competition also allows players to play more to a level of ability rather than age. "A suggestion of a girls only minor competition is being considered, but manpower will need to be around to operate this additional competition. "Despite the many suggestions being put,

then and in the past, there was only one person nominating for a junior sub-committee and that, not from a parent, but from one of the intermediate coaches," Mr Willoughby said. "Unfortunately, with only one nomination, the sub-committee proposal lapsed and the operation of the juniors will continue under the direct control of the management committee."

opponents. A fine game was played by Owen Kelso who scored five goals. Owen's confidence is developing and his skills are improving as a result of playing basketball with children of the same age and level of competence. Other scores: Kerrin Caulfield (1), Jody Bromley (1) and Gavin Walter (2). The under 12 game saw newcomer Wade Purton play a great first game. He scored two goals, one point, after many attempts and also managed some good steals from opponents. Fiona Cumming scored four goals and rebounded well under both rings. Kim and Roy Jackson played an enthusiastic game. Kim was involved in six jump balls and made many attempts at goal ... three of which scored. Roy was successful at scoring two goals and was also notable for his good defence play. Other scorers: Owen Kelso (1), Alexander Sykes (1) and Adrian Moore (1). Organisers thank Carol Moore for her dedication. She referees most of the games and ensures all players learn the rules as they enjoy the game. This on-going coaching benefits the children, regardless of their level of competence. Games times: Under 8, 1pm; under 10, 2pm; under 12, 3pm.

FOLLOWING a break of two weeks, junior basketballers were eager to start the ball bouncing again on Sunday at the recreational stadium in Cooee Bay. The under eights are full of enthusiasm. Several players displayed exceptional confidence and ability on the court last week. Matthew Kelso was quick to score the first of his six goals and throughout the game his skillful dribbling and passing enabled the play to flow well. Sophie Moore exhibited deftness by stealing the ball away from, her opponents a number of times. She was also involved in six jump balls and competently dribbled the ball down the court to attempt several goals. As a result of sensible passing by Rachel Farr, Damien Barry (1) became the only other scorer for the game. He also participated adeptly in six jump balls with some strong tap outs. A great effort by Darren Walter resulted in several jump balls. This tiny player's improvement is evident by his growing confidence in handling the ball. In the under lOs' Kerrin Caulfield, Jody Bromley and Ben Newmann demonstrated improved skills. Kerrin and Jody were involved in six and seven jump balls respectively ... illustrating their enthusiastic participation. Jody also displayed her ability to steal the ball from her

Clarry Hinton's four wins by one in close contest YEPPOON Bowls Club graded fours final was played on Saturday morning ... the last of the club's competitions. It was a close contest, with the final score favouring Clarry Hinton's four by one. For the first half of the game, Frank Birkett's team held a narrow advantage. Starting with a three, they led 7-3 by the end of six ends. They led 10-8 on the ninth but by the 14th the score was tied 13 all. Clarry then scored a three and two ends later picked up a five to lead 21-14 on the 17th. Two ends later the difference was still seven. Frank scored a three and four then followed up with two singles to lead 24-22 with two to play. Clarry scored a two which made the game all square going into the last end.

Arnold Halfpenny drew the shot and Greg Hogg made Hinton two when he drew another. Frank asked Don McPherson to play up to the head and try and disturb the two shots. Don OW get rid of the shot with his second bowl but Clarry remained one up. Clarry went for position and Frank failed to alter the head so at the linish the score favoured Hinton 25-24. Arnold Halfpenny, Greg Hogg, Frank O'Brien and Clarry Hinton, 25, defeated John Shepherd, Gordon MacKenzie, Don McPherson and Frank Birkett, 24. Members' annual subscriptions are due by October 31 and can be left in an envelope at the clubhouse for the secretary.

• By John and Suzy Watson THE CCTO's Information Centre loan debt now stands at $38,812. A total of 103 pledges (worth $520 each over two years) have been received... and the Capricorn Coast Mirror Appeal has closed! No doubt, there will still be a few people who wish to pledge a $5 a week payment to the Information Centre debt and, if they contact CCTO chairman Brian Hooper, their pledge will be recorded in future editions. There's a good reason for leaving the appeal open ... there are tourism and general businesses yet to be opened and they cannot be denied the opportunity to say: "I helped pay off the CCTO Information Centre"! But the main work is over. The debt is markedly down on the $55,000 of eight weeks ago and, when the 20 donors who have yet to make a payment send in their cheques, the debt will be even smaller! So far, more than $15,000 has been paid off the loan and there's still $10,000 to come in this year from pledges. In all, 45 pledges have been fully redeemed for this year and three have already paid their twoyears commitment. It is this sort of response that has made this appeal such an outstanding success. The idea for $5 a week came from the head ... the response of a flood of cheques for $260 came from the heart. No-one expected full payments when the appeal started. When the idea for this appeal was mooted, Mr Hooper said he was doubtful that so many people could be found to back their Information Centre with $5 a week. Eight weeks later, he's convinced! But let the credit go where it belongs ... to thepeople named in the following lists who gave, and the many behind-the-scene people in the CCTO who made personal calls, telephone calls and follow-up calls to make the appeal a success. Every appeal needs organmisation ... and the CCTO provided it. It was this sort of work that built the Information Centre in the first place and the reason people were prepared to help pay it off. Mr Hooper would like to thank everyone involved for their pledg es, their encouragement and their help.

This reader's mind boggles THE mind boggles at what creative innovation the Main Roads Department will come up with next, referring of course to the ridiculous barricade across the top section of the fourlane highway to the Capricorn International Resort round The Bluff. The rails across the barricade are just about eye-level, and unless you are equipped with xray vision, known only to belong to our mythical super heroes, it will only be a matter of time before there is a life threatening accident, regardless of the give-way sign at the end of James Street and the Esplanade. Another creation belongs to Livingstone Shire Council ... the pedestrian crossing in James Street from Woody's Store to the centre park and then across to Beaman Park. The crossing itself is strategically situated and was very necessary for the safety of our elderly and the public in general. My question is, why did they have to build a platform so far out from the kerb, taking out c7kvo very important parking bays? Qn any given day ,with the amount of tourists who frequent the main street, it is difficult at the best of times to find a park, yet we have the council taking them out as though we have plenty of parking available. I suggest if you want the tourists to stay around to spend their almighty dollar, you had better think of increasing the parking facilities, not decreasing them. Let's not have another situation like the post office bottle neck, but that's another council creation the motorist has to live with. - N Richards, Yeppoon.

May it always be Tyrer Park AS followers of horse racing in this community and long time residents, we feel enough has not been mentioned about the family to whom we really owe our own racing track ... the Tyrer family. The untiring and personal efforts of this family to get this race track, from almost virgin scrub, should never be forgotten by the sporting public of Yeppoon. What a magnificent community project. In spite of many difficulties and proverbial knockers they still persevered. The result is now one of the best country tracks in this State. We are sure all racing enthusiasts of Yeppoon feel it was a fitting tribute to name this track Tyrer Park in appreciation of the family who gave to us this lovely track. May it always be known as Tyrer Park Race Course. - Frank and Joan Mortensen, 70 Braithwaite Surer, Yeppoon.

Cricketers in first-up win CAPRICORN Coast Cricket Club second grade won the first 1989/90 season's game on the weekend against Frenchville at Yeppoon Showground. Coast needed 115 to win after the first day's play and set about in a tradesman-like fashion with the top order wearing down Frenchville's bowlers. This allowed the middle order to score freely. P Huxtable gained 35 runs, J Dawes 30 and J Ingle top-scored with 76 not out and gained man-of-the-match. Coast scored 8 for 210 and Frenchville's first innings were 115. The third grade side was beaten by Parkhurst in the first innings and fought back with courage. Parkhurst continued on at 1 for 122 and was bundled out by T Ellison and D May, taking 6 for 40 and 3 for 54. The innings closed at 167. Coast, batting in its second innings, showed a determined effort at the crease and at stumps, 5 for 119 with R Scoffin leading the runs with 46 and D May, 30. T Ellison was man-of-the-match with innings with 27 and 17 and bowling 6 for 40.

LAST week's item on sharks at Fraser Island prompted Gary Hasell, who was taking a break from telling visitors about the Capricorn Coast at the Information Centre, to recall a sight that has stayed in his mind for years.,He used to operate a scenic tour on Fraser Island and one day he noticed a fourwheel drive parked near the surf with a rope trailing out to sea. Puzzled, he stopped to see what was going on. Nothing happened for a while then, suddenly, the 4WD driver jumped into the cabin, started the motor, and drove straight up the beach. Coming in behind, on the rope, was a dirty big shark. The 4WD owner had simply baited a hook on a rope and tossed it into the sea. Must have been one very surprised shark that took a bite then found itself hurtling toward shore. That story is the only one that has ever made me feel sorry for a shark!!! TRACY HANSEN is new in town and opens a bistro and cafe on Monday called ' Castro's ... which is obviously named to "revolutionise" Coast eating habits. She hails from Brisbane, or so it seems when you first talk to her. She talks about managing a coffee lounge in Milton, supplying Aroma's Coffee Lounge with her home-made delicacies to put herself through Queensland Institute of Technology (it took six years but she's a Batchelor of Business) and how difficult it is to smoke in the Big Smoke because everyone seems to be a paid up member of the Anti-Smoking Lobby. Since arriving on the Coast she's had numerous invitations to hand-feed native animals (locals seems to feel all city people have never seen a native animal) but she would like to make it perfectly clear that she's quite accustomed to handfeeding native animals ... she spent her early life at a place called Tinaroo Dam where her parents operated a motel. In case you're wondering where Tinaroo is it's near Atherton ... and it had its own supply of native animals! •••

CAPRICORN Coast Chamber of Commerce and Industry was deep in thought on Tuesday night solving the world's problems when Barry Wetzler of the Cooee Bay Store remarked that if plans go ahead to complete a full four-lane highway from Yeppoon to Rockhampton it would make it even easier for locals to shop in Rocky. The trip was getting shorter and shorter, he told the I members. Quick as a flash, former president Andrew McLelland had the answer: "We should agitate for two lanes from Rockhampton to Yeppoon ... and a dirt track from Yeppoon to Rockhampton"!!!

BLOKE went to Capricorn International Resort on weekend for night out with friends and tucked $50 note into the back of his wallet as "spare cash" in case he needed it. Night wore on, friends imbibed freely and it was time for this bloke to cough up for another round. Feeling a little light on in the front part of the wallet, he absent-mindedly reached into the secret compartment for the $50 and handed it to the waitress. She quietly told him it wasn't enough to pay for the drinks. Shocked at how much they must have cost he was about to make a remark when she nodded at what he had placed before her. It most certainly wasn't a $50 note ... it was a condom!!!
