Why haven't Coast TAFE courses filled?
Govt OKs $1m. for Scenic Highway repair
WHY haven't the Capricorn Coast TAFE Centre leisure courses been filled? The majority of the courses are what people chose in the questionnaire earlier this year. If they are the right courses, are they on days or nights not suitable or are they too expensive as hobby or leisure courses? Courses have to have an average of 10 people to start. Introduction to MSDOS has enough starters, but some have nil - Why not spin a yarn, Introduction to lacemaking, Christmas decorations/gifts without sewing and profitable beekeeping - and won't continue unless something drastic happens ... interested students. German as a Living Language has two; floral art for beginners (3); Creative handbuilding for beginners (1); Organic gardening (1); Sewing your C hrist mas wardrobe (1) and Typewriting (1) are in jeopardy. Ice your own Christmas cake (7); Basic bar attendant (5) and Beginners accounting (6) are possible starters. The career-based courses are popular and the people joining them are quite prepared to pay the fee ... some said it was wellworth it because they have a chance at a job later with skills they didn't have before doing the course. Leisure or hobby courses are usually taken on a whim ... they improve your home or personal skills, but don't usually lead to careers or job opportunities. But maybe they do. The TAFE centre needs to know why the courses this term haven't filled. It is your TAFE and the courses are for you ... there is no use in putting up courses no-one wants. Please phone the TAFE, 33 6200, or write to Capricorn Coast TAFE Centre, P 0 Box 100, Yeppoon, 4703 and say what is wrong ... courses, times, dates, cost. The types of courses can be changed for the next term, the times and dates can be made to suit the majority and if it is the cost, we will have to lobby the department to get it changed. Maybe, you haven't made up your mind. If that is the case you have a last chance. The closing date has been extended to October 19. Phone the Centre, 33 6200, and book in before the course you want is cancelled.
MEMBER for Broadsound Denis Hinton said this week the Scenic Highway between Kinka Beach and the harbour turn-off would be rebuilt at a cost of $1 million. The work would be carried out in two sections as soon as trucks carting rock to the harbour have completed their work and the Main Roads Department has finalised plans. Mr Hinton said the first stage, 1.1km north of the Kinka Beach quarry turn-off and 0.5km at Mulambin Beach, would be started in January. Trucks have torn up sections of the road since carting started earlier this year. The section near the quarry turn-off became so wavy that trucks went to the extent of using a dirt road to avoid the highway section. Planning for repairs to this section are already underway. Work will cost $500,000. Of this amount, $100,000 would come from the Rosslyn Bay Harbour fund. Mr Hinton said immediate maintenance on other sections would be carried out. The other $500,000 would be spent on the remaining 7.1km of the highway. This section would be resheeted. "Full reconstruction is not required for these sections because the base of the road is still sound," Mr Hinton said. "Resheeting will provide an excellent surface for local and tourist traffic." He said he was "delighted" to announce the works because the government was keeping its commitment to provide a better road than before the harbour construction. "I am constantly amazed at the opposition by the ALP to the harbour project, which is the foremost tourism development in Central Queensland," he said.
-Sunset cruise for Life unit THE Sunset Dinner Cruise for Life Education is on Saturday (tomorrow) night and tickets are still available. The trip is on board Reefseeker and leaves from Rosslyn Bay Harbour. Tickets are S30 single for dinner, entertainment and play money for Casino Capers. If you haven't booked in, phone Dave Larkin, 39 7556 or Lynda Gustafson, 39 3152 and they will give you a ticket number that will ensure your place on Reefseeker. The Coast has nearly raised the full amount allotted to it for a Life Education Mobile Unit and the Sunset Dinner Cruise will help fill the coffers.

Two trainees for Yeppoon Police TWO trainee police officers will be working from Yeppoon Police Station by the end of October. _ One trainee, Const Brett Heath, has started and the other is expected at the station within the next few weeks. The trainees are the result of representations made by Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton to Police Minister Vince Lester. Yeppoon Police Station is now manned by a Detective Sgt 2c, Detective Snr Const, Officerin-charge Sgt lc Ken Tanzer, three Sgt 3c, one constable and one trainee constable. "This should greatly alleviate the present problem of understaffing, with a total of three additional officers this year," Mr Hinton said. "Yeppoon gained a detective after I made representations to the Minister earlier thisyear and now the station has two more officers. "The capacity of Yeppoon's force to provide round the clock protection has been increased. They win be able to investigate and prevent break-ins, thefts, vandalism and underage drinking with greater ease," he said. "It is a significant break through for Yeppoon and in line with the Government's policy of building up the size of the force, as well as improving police morale."
Sgt lc Ken Tanzer said he was pleased with the two additional trainee constables. "They have had basic training at the Police Academy in Brisbane and then when sworn in as constables are designated as trainees for the first 12 months of their service," he said. "They are then stationed at various centres during their training period. "Towards the end of the 12 months training period they return to the academy for in-service training and then are appointed to a station."
Police thank public for aid YEPPOON officer-in-charge Sgt lc Ken Tanzer this week thanked people who helped at a fracas in Beaman Park recently. "We had some difficulties in restraining some juveniles and asked for assistance from people who were nearby," he said. "They lent a hand and we appreciate their help. Their assistance reduced the possibility of injuries to the juveniles and police."

THE Capricorn Coast Tourist Organisation has backed the Capricorn Coast Chamber of Commerce and Industry's street lighting proposal with $1000. CCTO chairman Brian Hooper said management committee members decided unanimously to donate $1000 toward the cost of installing coloured lights in the main business area of Yeppoon. It was announced in last week's Capricorn CoastMirror that the chamber decided to underwrite the cost of providing coloured lighting from the Yeppoon beachfront to Savemore Centre up to a cost of $4000. Mr Hooper said the CCTO' s unanimous decision to give $1000 toward this project was emphatic that the funds would come from CCTO membership subscriptions. "The $1000 had no connection with the Information Centre Building Loan Appeal," Mr Hooper said.

YEPPOON Police have lost property handed in at the station and clothes recovered as the result of investigations. Handed in are three bicycles - lady's Apollo, gent's 10-speed Repco and a 10-speed supersport - and a set of motor cycle saddle bags with jacket, gloves and scarf. Yeppoon Police officer-in-charge Sgt lc Ken Tanzer said if the people who had lost their bicycles had them engraved with a special code lodged at the station, their property could have been returned immediately. "We have a vibro-engraver at the station and it is available for people to engrave belongings," Sgt Tanzer said. "A special personal code is engraved on the property - videos, bicycles, televisions, radios and then that code is filed here to aid in the return of stolen or lost articles." He said any Coast resident can borrow the engraver to mark belongings that are difficult to take to the station. "Large stereo equipment is better engraved in your own home. A police officer will show you how to use the engraver and how to enter your code on the supplied form. "We keep the information on file here at the station so if your property is stolen or lost and either handed in or recovered it can be returned to the correct owners." Sgt Tanzer said the clothing held at Yeppoon Police Station has been recovered from recent offenders who have been apprehended.

Cawarral road sealing plan A SECONDARY main road, with upgrading to sealed status, may service Cawarral and Mt Chalmers' residents according to Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton. "I have put a strong case to Main Roads Minister Gil Alison for the road," Mr Hinton said. "I sought a transfer for the Dairy Inn Road from the Yeppoon/Rockhampton turnoff through Cawarral and the Cawarral/Coorooman Road through to the Rockhampton/ Emu Park Road from a Livingstone Shire road to secondary main road status. "This change of status will lead to adequate
funding being provided to seal the road using MRD funds," he said. "MRD is doing a road plan review in Januaiy 1990 and I will be suggesting to Livingstone Shire Council that it puts forward a case for gazettal of the road as a secondary main roadi... a case I would strongly support." Mr Hinton said the road acts as a through road between Emu Park Road and Yeppoon Road. "The cost of sealing this important road can be funded by council within the foreseeable future. I believe that should council support my view, then the chances of sealing this road link will be strong."

point tor the proposed sanctuary access and also for Barracuda Street and it is only a narrow road. In some places it becomes a single width ... two cars have difficulty passing with any semblance of safety," she said. "If the two Old Scenic Highway accesses are used, the road would have to be upgraded. "The access off the main highway would be safer because it has two acceptable traffic lanes. . "Besides the traffic flow through Old Scenic Highway we feel the sanctuary should be cared for and not have an access road on one side. "It is a beautiful area. The sanctuary is on private property and they are entitled to have an access road through it. But, it is the natural habitat for a number of native fauna, some all year round with others visiting on their migration path." According to Mrs Moran and Capricorn Coast birdwat cher Molly Crawford the following fauna has been observed in and around the sanctuary. Water birds: brolgas are resident and breed every two years; Spoonbills (big wading birds); Magpie Geese; White faced Herons; Black Swans; Moorhens breed; Swamphens; Black Duck; Buff Banded Rails; Black Fronted Plovers (small wading bird); quails. Bush birds: Sunbirds; Little Shrike-Thrush; Blue winged Kookaburra and Laughing Kookaburra; Magpies; Pied Butcher Birds; Noisy Miner; Finches. Honeyeaters: Lewins; White throated; Brown; Dusky and Blue Faced. And Jabirus on occasional visits. "As well as water and bush birds it is the habitat for Pretty-face wallabies, goannas and lizards," Mrs Moran said.
Tenders out to demolish home TENDERS are being called for the demolition of an old housing commission home at 15 Hutton Street, Yeppoon, to provide a suitable site for more pensioner units at Yeppoon. "The call for pensioner units of high quality and low rental for senior citizens is high," Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton said. "Bill Shuttlewood Lodge and Ron Kershaw Lodge are now complete and fully occupied. Kershaw Lodge will be officially opened by Family Services Minister Beryce Nelson on November 23. "A further block of 12 pensioners units is commissioned for immediate construction in Rockhampton Road," he said. "It is a continuous programme, but with 1400 full time pensioners in Yeppoon, there should be no shortage of applicants."
candidate for Broadsound
ref change for the Better ONLY The AS a Broadsound Shire councillor I recognise the quality of Central Queensland's roads is an issue of vital importance to individual motorists, local authorities and industry. This State Government and past conservative governments have been quick to provide funding to their cronies and mates for special road projects but they have been slow in providing assistance for local roads. The National-Liberal Party coalition approved roadworks for Iwasaki now amounting over $7 million; $1.5 million was allocated to upgrade roads leading to Ten Mile, a property owned by the Bjelke-Petersen family, and now we have Si million allocated to prop up the developers at Rosslyn Bay. Funding priorities of this nature have allowed important and essential roads to fall into disrepair. Local authorities have been starved for funds while money is wasted on deals. This blatant misuse of public money must come to an end. Please feel free to contact me, 58 1694 or 33 6649. Authorised: Richard Witkiewicz, 19 Brock Cres, Dysart

AMNESTY International members are pleased with the success of the Capricorn Coast premiere showing of Dead Poets Society during the Pineapple Festival at Capricorn Cinema. "There were 150 in the audience and we raised more than $300 to help our recently released prisoner of conscience, Achroe Johnson," spokesman Leslie Levy said. "We thank everyone for their support ... it was great. "We have received several letters from Achroe since he was freed in July and have learned that in 1987 he was awarded a scholarship to continue his studies in West Germany. "Unfortunately he was arrested before he could take advantage of the opportunity," she said. "The current economic and political situation in Benin is unstable. The university was not allowed to accept enrolments this year and there is no certainty it will re-open next year." She said Achroc had been advised the scholarship was still available. "Before he can be issued with a student visa, Achroe has to produce a return air ticket. In view of the possibility he could be re-arrested at any time, he is anxious to leave Benin as soon as possible. "His family is helping, but the 81200 fare is beyond their means." Capricorn Coast Amnesty International has sent several hundred dollars and hopes to send "His family is borrowing the money and will repay the loan with funds we send," she said. Anyone able to help with a small donation can contact Leslie Levy, 39 4063 or Denise Christensen, 39 1728.

October social draws big crowd YEPPOON soloists Beryl Dawson and Yvonne Brown and pianist Leila Goodwin were guest artists at Tuesday's Yeppoon Pensioners League October social. The afternoon attracted and attendance of 140 and included busloads of pensioners from North Rockhampton and Emu Park pensioners leagues. Orchids, lilies, gerberas, roses, statice and brilliant coloured bougainvillea were the dominant blooms in the colourful array of flowers that fronted Yeppoon Town Hall's stage. As in previous socials the flowers were given to eager social-goers at the afternoon's end. They were given by Beryl Connor, Marge Cornell, Ann Nugent and Thelma Shuttlewood and were arranged by Beryl and Marge. Following the national anthem and the pensioners' song, compere Marge Cornell extended birthday greetings to Rowena Stevens, Louise Poelitz, Evie Benson, Iris Holden, Edna Rasmussen, Frances Biles, Alf Marcombe and hugh Cochrane. Beryl Dawson teamed with Yvonne Brown in a duet duo 'Chattanooga Choo Choo' and 'April Showers'. She received well merited applause for her solos 'Try to remember' and 'My curly-headed babby'. Yvonne's two well-sung solos were 'Hi Lily Hi Lo' and 'The Birth of the Blues'. Leila Goodwin was accompanist for Beryl and Yvonne and played for the dances which interspersed the programme. Making their first appearance at a Yeppoon league's social, Rockhampton couple George and Maureen Turner pleased with the duets 'Blue eyes crying in the rain' and 'There goes my everything'.

Carden& Coadthe ANNETTE and Frank van Gestel and their family are leaving the Capricorn Coast and a farewell has been organised on Sunday, November 26 from 1 1 am in Lions Park, Emu Park (next to the Emu Park Bowls Club). It is a bring-your-own lunch and drinks and everyone is welcome. • • • THE 'Coastal Gardeners' met at Coral Ziebell's home on September 26 ... and was quizzed on arrival and had a mind job to do on trees. Carol prepared an ideal quiz and it looked easy, but wasn't. She then showed members her garden, though small, supports a large variety of trees and flowers. Most of the members garnered cuttings and seedlings for their own use and were able to find out what grows best and where. Six members arranged to meet for a trip to the Rockhampton Orchid Show later that week. It was a feast and the perfume was overwhelming. Anyone who wasn't an orchid lover before, certainly left with a changed mind. The group also called into St Aubins Village before returning to the Coast. Future excursions are intended, but more notice will be given earlier. The next meeting is at Barbara Young's 13 1 _ .11and Street, Yeppoon residence on october 17 at 2pm. Barbara is happy for anyone to ring her, 39 4171, if they are interested in going along. If you love gardening you are welcome to attend any of the meetings. You can be an amateur, professional, old hand or new. The numbers are growing (as they should in a gardening group) and you now have to-take your own cup and plate. Don't forget if you have a perfect flower, fruit or vegetable you want to brag about, take it along ... everyone will feel just like you. • . • YEPPOON Nursing mothers informal discussion on Thursday, October 19 at Debbie's, 31 School Street, starts at 10am. The topic is Getting to Know Your Baby ... aspects of breastfeeding management, bonding and survival plan (how do you organise meals, washing and making sure everyone is satisfied and you're not exhausted). For information or transport, 39 4139 or 39 4468.
BESIDES wringing your hands and hoping someone is around to help, what else can you do in an emergency? Start now and go to first aid classes at the Yeppoon-Emu Park Ambulance Centre, James Street, Yeppoon. The course starts at 6.30pm on Tuesday, October 24 for six weeks and each class lasts for three hours. Registrations must be in by October 20 and the cost is $30 ... money well spent. Children have all sorts of accidents and you will find out how to stop bleeding, what to do for bruising and most important ... how to use heart lung resuscitation. Don't phone the centre, you will tie up the phones, go along and sign on. • • • THE September mystery bus tour organised by Emu Park Pensioners League was enjoyed by everyone. The next trip (November 9) is the last one for 1989 ... a barbecue in Rockhampton's Botanic gardens and also shopping. The cost is S5 for members and $6 non-members, all inclusive. Phone Stan Nelson, 39 6359, to reserve a seat on the bus. You don't have to be a member. • • • PARENTS-to-be, Community Health's free birth preparation programme starts at 7.30pm on Wednesday, November 8 at Yeppoon Hospital. Register, Community Health, 39 1469. The four week, Wednesday night course is free and qualified people are on hand to make new parents feel more at ease.

Coast's incredible willingness - ALP ALP Broadsound candidate Jim Pearce this week praised Capricorn Coast residents and businesses for willingly supporting the Information Centre appeal. "Local residents, particularly business people and not just those involved in tourism have displayed an incredible willingness to make things happen for the benefit of all on the Capricorn Coast," Mr Pearce said. "Early in my campaign I was able to secure a commitment from Labor leader Wayne Goss that when elected we would clear the debt on the CCTO tourist information centre. "This is in line with our policy of on-going assistance to the tourist industry development. "I reminded appeal organisers Brian Hooper and John and Suzy Watson of this when the appeal was launched," he said. "We agreed to hold back on repeating that pledge and see how the public responded." Mr Pearce said although he believed government had a responsibility to stimulate industry the last thing he wanted to do was stifle local initiative. "As a government we will help in other ways and personally my wife Dianne and I were happy to join the ranks of donors," he said. "The appeal is going well, the response has been great. The generosity of all involved is to be congratulated. Government funding is never a substitute for personal initiative and enterprise. "However, promotion and development are two vital components in establishing an industry such as tourism. Nothing is more fundamental and necessary to local tourism than information. "It is what gets the tourist here and makes them stay a little longer," Mr Pearce said.

New Products Do you want to look great this Summer? DO you want to look great this Summer? You can, if you start right at the top ... with your hair. G.B.'s Hair Studio has four professional staff, ready to advise you, male or female, on how to look great throughout the Summer. Karin, Sonia, Ann-Maree and Jana can't do it by themselves ... they need to talk to you, to find out what you would like, how you see yourself, learn from you exactly what you expect. A free consultation gives you, and the friendly G.B.'s Hair Studio staff, a mutual understanding. If you already know exactly what you want they will use their skills to fullfil your requirements ... if you want advice they can show you various styles that will suit your face, your body, you. Together, you will perfect the look that gives you that Summer feeling ... and it doesn't cost anything extra for total satisfaction. G.B.'s Hair Studio has the products to create your look and the products you use at home to maintain that look with a minimum of fuss.

Ships Chandlery at harbour with bait & tackle THERE'S a new business at Rosslyn Bay Harbour and it fits in perfectly with the boating scene ... Tony Halley has opened Rosslyn Bay Marine, a ships chandlery with bait and tackle. Rosslyn Bay Marine (phone 33 6287) is located in the shops under Rosslyn Bay Inn facing the trailer car park. Catering specifically for the people who use the harbour, Tony Halley will be open all weekend from 6am to 6pm and until 6pm Fridays. Weekdays he will be opening at 7am and closing time will be flexible, depending on the weather. Tony said the hours were designed to cater to harbour users, especially those who run into a last-minute problem. "There's nothing worse than packing the gear, towing the boat to the harbour then finding it won't start or something has been left behind," Tony said. "We've already been able to help quite a few who have found a fuel hose has perished, a clip has broken, a rope they thought was aboard was left at home or needed a new spark plug," he said. Yachties will feel at home among the quality Ronstan fittings. There's a big range of these stainless steel fittings in stock from a s/s thimble to a bilge pump. "It's the sort of stock that has to be seen," Tony said. "There's so much in so many sizes that each boat owner will be able to find just what they're looking for." It's the same with the huge range of 304 and 316 grade stainless
steel nuts, bolts, washers, screws and so on. Rosslyn Bay Marine has the goods ... and they're in stock. Of course, once boat owners have sorted out what they need to get on the water, there's bound to be something in the fishing tackle line they'll need ... it's all there, covering practically one complete wall of the shop. Fishing rod enthusiasts will like the feel of the Queensland-made Angler rods and the Silstar range of rods and reels ... and, of course, Alvey reels! Sitting right next to the rods and reels is a range of fun products such as face masks and snorkels and the wise Dad could take the family along to look at this range and drop the hint about the fishing outfit he'd like to see in his Christmas stocking ... lay-bye now before the rush! And, while the family is along, have a look at the Metzeler Inflatables. These outboard-powered rubber duckies put the whole family in the water scene at an affordable price. Tony has the 9'8", 4-man Aztec and the 8'3" Jolly M in stock and selling at an introductory price of just $1990 and $1490 ... each of those prices is $200 under list. By the way, Rosslyn Bay Marine is an agent for the Metzeler Inflatables so you can choose from the whole range available. Fuel tanks in stainless steel and plastic, net twine, hats, boating books and so much more makes a visit compulsory for anyone afloat. Park in the trailer area and step straight in the front door!,
Now's the time to beat the heat of Summer! THE hot weather of recent weeks is not going to go away ... it's here for the. Summer so you may as well do something now about cooling your home with an aluminium awning! There is no sense in putting it off because it takes 10 working days to prepare and install the right awning, in the right colour for your home ... and it will be even hotter then. If you wait until December you might be too late for the holiday period. Phil Ward at Yeppoon Kitchens (47 Tanby Road, 39 2419) offers a free measure and quote. He can advise you on the best style to give both relief from the heat and the rain. And, an aluminium awning allows you to open windows during Summer rain to get a cooling breeze. But aluminium awnings aren't the only measures to get relief from the heat. Ask about Vertical Drapes, Venetian Blinds or the very latest Pleated Blinds. Phil and his staff can advise you on all of these quality products and the free measure and quote gives
you an exact cost to work on with no obligation. Let them combine an aluminium awning with a set of Aluminium Drapes, a Venetian Blind or Pleated Blinds to give total relief from the heat and privacy. Quality materials and modern colours add value to your home and can be co-ordinated with existing decor. Metallic backing can give even more relief from the heat. Phone Phil now on 39 2419. Don't wait until it's too hot to pick up a phone ... get relief from the heat now and for years to come!

FRIENDLY RIVALRY FOR SHIELD A SHIELD that was first contested in 1984 was the subject of friendly rivalry once again this week at Emu Park Bowls Club. It was in 1984 that Welfare Bowls Club (Mt Morgan) members John and Mavis Beatham sponsored a game of bowls between Welfare and Emu Park. The idea was to foster friendship between the clubs with an annual match for the John and Mavis Beatham Perpetual Shield. Six years later, the day is growing in popularity and members of both clubs are always eager to get together for this event. Mavis was unable to attend this year but sent her good wishes and congratulations to the winners. As usual, it was a day of good cheer and a high standard of bowling. Emu Park retained the shield with an overall score of 361 points to Welfare's 326. Top team of the day was Margaret Freeman, Dot Scoffin, Ken Moore and John Aitken with three wins and aggregate of 57. Mt Morgan's highest scorers were B Healy, M Stains, A Knight and H Sinclair with two wins and 55 points. . Trophy winners on Tuesday were Thelma Bond, Allan Evans and Eddie Mann. Saturday winners were Jean Davis and Dulcie Locke. The ladies organised a cent sale on Wednesday and 32 mixed bowlers made it a good day. Top scorers were Edna Maker, Alan Price and Mo Stewart. In the ladies championship pairs, Marg Price, Rhoda Maud def Pat Tickner, Beryl Wincen and later in the week, Marg and Rhoda took out the final when they defeated Ruth Forrest and Joyce Barber in a close game. Wednesday, October 18 is reserved for ladies only when Emu Park ladies and visitors play for the Fred and Eunice Cowdray Rose Bowl. The club would like a full green of 64 bowlers. Nominations are invited from club teams of four, or individual ladies. Plays starts at 1.30pm. Club mixed competitions have started and members are asked to check the boards for draws. Games may be organised by mutual agreement but must be played on or before the date listed. In the first game of mixed fours, Edith Gi-
bson, Peg Kluver, Glen Kluver and Wilf Gibson defeated Ailsa Stanley, Esme Johnson, Roy Johnson and Chick Stanley 29-22, in an interesting game. This Sunday, the QRI club will spend the day at Emu Park. It will be a two-game match for the Harold "Doodles" Jahnke Memorial Shield. Play starts at 9.30am with a BYO lunch; 32 mixed nominations are required. Mixed social bowling starts at 1pm on Tuesday and Saturday. Sixty-four nominations are needed for Keith Wright's Trophy Day on Sunday, October 22. Play starts at 1pm. Social. evenings are held every Friday from 6pm. The club will hold a Melbourne Cup special on Tuesday, November 7. There will be bowls, lunch, fashion parade and TV viewing for $6. Bowlers and non-bowlers are welcome. Phone 39 6503 and ask for Margaret.

Dennis Etheridge had the closest result with a 10-9 win, the fourth against Chris Callard. Bits and Pieces were unable to make up much leeway on Saints and Sinners because they were only able to take one rubber from Professionals. That rubber came from Val Odell's win against Cane Murphy 10-8 in the fifth. Clay Nothling appears to have lost none of his match fitness when he wore down Neale Royal in five.

Buy-a-Brick and help Swans build clubhouse
THE Yeppoon Swans have launched a fundraising drive to to raise enough money to build a clubhouse on its new ground in Yeppoon. In all, the club needs to raise $27,000 ... and it has to have the cash in the bank by the end of February next year. The fun-raising drive, plus a State Government subsidy of $37,000 together with volunteer labour commitments, will build a low-set headquarters for Yeppoon Australian Football Club. With the money now in hand following a appeal for funds at the recent trophy presentation night, club officials calculate they have to raise $1200 a week in each of the next 18 weeks to ensure it starts the 1990 season with the clubhouse and changerooms for its new grounds. The fund-raising drive will run hand-in-handwith working bees at the grounds (opposite the Yeppoon Girl Guides Headquarters) to have the playing field ready for the 1990 season. Livingstone Shire Council has taken the ground from a low-level swamp on the edge of town to a raised surface over the past two years and work has been estimated to cost $181,000. The playing field was recently top dressed to smooth out dozer tracks and 2000m2 of turf will soon be distributed over the field. It is expected the normal wet season will turn the squares of turf into a proper playing field in time for the start of training in late February next year. Swans officials have launched their fund-raising drive to ensure the playing surface is matched with changerooms, toilets and supporters' area. The first stage of fund-raising will be a "Buya-block" campaign when members and supporters will be urged to buy $10, $25 and $50 blocks. Everyone buying one of these blocks will have their name permanently recorded on a block used in construction. Larger amounts donated will be acknowledged with bigger plaques. Buy-a-block was launched at the presentation of trophies and more than $2000 was raised in just two hours. Some supporters gave $500 and $700. After that initial buying spree, club officials worked out they now need an average of $1200 a week for the next 18 weeks to buy all the materials needed to build the clubhouse. They are expecting solid support from club members and supporters because the amount to be raised is small in comparison with the value of the finished building. Because all construction labour will be provided free and the State Government has backed the project with $37,000, the Swans will wind up with premises worth more than $80,000 for just $27,000 outlay. Volunteer builders have nominated early February as the start of construction and they have said they need three weeks for the job ... but the materials must be on site for a speedy completion. Fund-raising headquarters will be the Pacific Hotel, home to the Swans over it past successful seasons, and it hoped to erect a funds thermometer on the premises so that supports can see their donations make the themometer rise to the top. Preparations are now in hand for a door-knock appeal along the Capricorn Coast to make it

Cricketers' interesting tussle at Showground against Brothers THE second grade cricket match between CapCoast and Brothers to be completed at Yeppoon Showground tomorrow looks an interesting tussle with Coast all out for 94 and Brothers 2 for 40 after the first day. With only four Coast batsmen recording double figures, it would appear as if Brothers had Coast in trouble but a shaky start by the visitors tomorrow could see Coast come out on top. Opener S Pidcock, with 18, almost top-scored for Coast but that honour went to K Semmler

with 23. The only other double figures went to Setu (13) and Huxtable (10). Still, with Brothers' opener Daniels already back in the pavilion with 10 and first drop Taylor (0) with him, the Coast has a chance. Kitchener (1/15) and Anderson (1/10) have the wickets for Coast. The Coast's first turf wicket makes cricket a sport worthy of watching and the Coast side deserves support, especiallywhen it's playing at home. The Coast's third grade side looks to be in trouble in its match against Etna Creek at Etna Creek. With a first innings score of 187 on the board, the side would have seemed to be fairly well on its way to a win but Etna Creek responded with 2 for 131. Coast middle order batsman P Marsh top scored with 46 not out and R Christie was next best with 39. R Scoffin was run out when 24. The Etna Creek side responded with 40 and 38 from openers Williams and McHugh and the first and second drops have 15 and 31 not out. Coast's only wicket taker so far is opener D May with 2/32. The game continues tomorrow.

FOURTEEN-year-old Tony Ravell of Emu Park won the State Amateur Boxing Junior Light Welterweight title in Brisbane last week. His title fight, against a 17-year-old, was a crowd-pleaser and Tony came off the floor to win the bout. Tony's father, Ken, was approached after the fight by a trainer who looks after some professional boxers. "He told me it was the gutsiest effort he had ever seen," Mr Ravell said. Tony's win meant selection in the Queensland amateur boxing team to contest the Australian titles next month. His State Title win was rewarded with a medal. Mr Ravell is now working out how to put together more than 51000 to take Tony to the Australian titles. To attend the State Titles, he was loaned a Ford Laser by Ken Ufer of Chippindale Motors. The Australian titles, in Melbourne, provide two problems ... Tony has to attend a State Boxing Camp at Maroochydore then leaves from the camp for Melbourne. If the airlines are still in dispute, the Queensland boxers will cut short their training by two days and travel by coach, otherwise they will fly there. He will contest the Junior Light Welterweight division against other State Champions. It's a sudden death affair where boxers only progress by winning. They are out of the championships as soon as they have their first loss. Mr Ravell, obviously pleased with his son's State Title, said amateur boxers were matched by weight, rather than age. Tony, weighing almost 63kg, fought in the Light Welterweight division with a weight limit of 63.5kg. If his weight stays the same, he will be able to defend his State title next year but Mr Ravell said he did not believe in holding back a boxer's weight just to stay within a division. He would prefer Tony to develop naturally and fight in whatever division matched his weight. So far, Tony has had 32 fights and won 24. "He hasbeen unfortunate with his losses because he has met State or Australian champions," Mr Ravell said. "He started learning to box at age 6 but amateurs can't step into a ringuntil they are 10. He's been a smart little fighter since he started and quite often he's had to go to a higher class to get a bout." The Year 10 Yeppoon High student has not confined his sporting interests to boxing ... he's going to Brisbane next week as part of the school's athletic squad meeting other schools in the QEII stadium. But to take part in the athletics carnival, he had to knock back selection in the Rockhampton cricket team to play Emerald at the same time. But his main attention is focused on the Australian boxing titles ... and his father's attention is focused on raising the $1000 he needs to get him to Melbourne.
80 swimmers start season CAPRICORN Coast Swimming Club has started its 1989/90 season with about 80 children. The club meets on Wednesday at the Cooee Bay Olympic Pool from 6.30pm.

LIVINGSTONE Shire Council has been known to meet "in camera" ... but never quite so literally as Tuesday when the power was off at the council chambers for the morning. Councillors met under rather romantic conditions with three portable fluorescent lights providing, at best, shadowy lighting. During proceedings, Bill Power, the RSL's Central Queensland North-East Zone vice President arrived to present a framed certificate of appreciation to council for its help with the RSL's recent regional conference. It was the first time a regional confereike had been hosted by five small RSL clubs, from four Local Authority areas. Each of the Local Authorities helped with the conference. Opening his presentation remarks, Bill Power said: "I heard you were without power ... and here I am!" • • • MAN goes out to play golf early one morning, hits his ball into the rough and starts searching. Treking through the undergrowth he meets a shapely female with a great Mashie and even better Niblicks. It was love at first sight. They found their balls, hit out of the rough and played the rest of the round together. When they finished the game about 1 lam the woman packed away her clubs and said she had to rush off. Morning after morning the couple met at the golf course, played a round, then parted, with the woman rushing off to some appointment. After almost a year of playing a round together, the man popped the question ... he asked the woman to be his wife (actually she was asked to be his caddy for life but she was liberated so bought him a golf cart for a wedding present). Anyway, the wedding day arrives and golfers come from everywhere to celebrate the ceremony held on the 4th hole (where they met) and the reception later at the clubhouse. The celebrations ended with the couple leaving for their first night together in a motel. He carries her into the room, sets her down gently on the bed and starts to remove his Plus Fours ... then stops. "Darling," he said. "Before we go any further, I have a confession to make. Every day when we played a round, and you left the course, I kept playing ... I played at least another 18 holes every day and often 27 more. Darling, I'm • a compulsive golfer." The woman, with a look of relief on her face, said it was her turn for a confession; "My sweet, you never asked why I had to rush off each day ... the truth is, well, it's, oh I hope you'll still love me; darling, I'm a hooker!" The husband's face broke into a wide smile and he replied: "That's no worry darling, tomorrow morning I'll show you how to place your feet and move your right hand over the top of the club"!!! • • • COAST bloke decided to take his wife to a show at the Pilbeam Theatre and wanted to make a night of it. He decided the best way to make it a night to remember would be to book into a motel in Rockhampton ... but he wanted one with waterbeds (can't imagine why, must have had water on the knee). Anyway, he decided he was too long in the tooth to ring each motel and ask- whether they had waterbeds so he asked a younger (well, a little bit younger) female friend to let her fingers do the walking. She was smarter than he was, she phoned the CTDO and asked them for a list from the information available. Armed with a full list, she rang the bloke and asked him which one he wanted to book. Have not heard how the night turned out but hope the CCTO has the same information available ... this bloke could strike again but next time, he'll want to stay closer to home!!!
