• ABOVE: Margaret Ireland will open the Don Ireland Swimming Complex at 10am on Sunday, November 5. To celebrate the opening the committee has given a free day to everyone who wants to try out the new complex. The day will be festive with stalls, barbecue, swimming displays and invitation challenges to all. The pool will be open daily from 5am until dark from Monday, November 6 and will be operated by the committee. Pictured are Yvonne and Menyn Protheroe, Bev Green, Pat Datiras and ',alma Kelly ... some of the people who have been working for a community pool since March 25, 1982. The complex has cost about $195,000 and the majority has been raised by the Emu Park and district community with assistance from Livingstone Shire Council and Member for Capricomia Keith Wright.

Sewer work starts Januar WORK will start on the Emu Park sewerage scheme by the end of January and the first connection will follow about 12 months after, Livingstone Shire chairman Cr John Bowen said this week. Although the expected start date is known, no details on costings for the overall scheme or for ,ndividual connections will be known for at lc A six weeks. Cr Bowen said there were still too many unknowns to provide figures on costings. The biggest unknown at this stage is the actual site of the treatment works. Cr Bowen said a motion passed at the latest council meeting nominating the site as the recreation reserve off Hartley Street was only a guide to engineering staff. The motion, approved with only one dissenter, only pointed out the "general direction" in which the treatment works would be sited. There were at least three sites in that general direction. The first was the recreation reserve; the second the sanitary reserve closer to Emu Park-to-Rockhampton Road and the

third was behind Emu Park golf course. This site would need some land from the golf course. But Cr Bowen was not eliminating other sites from planning. He said no decision was final until the costings had been obtained. Costings could not be finalised until an aerial survey, due to start next week, was completed and the results digitised in the council computer. Only then could the council provide detailed costings. Among matters to be considered were where to put the treatment works, where was the effluent going to be distributed and the cost per household. Cr Bowen said cost was important because there was no point in setting up a sewerage scheme which bankrupted the ratepayers. Other factors coming into play were council's hopes of gaining the Commonwealth land near the existing industrial estate. Cr Bowen said Member for Capricornia Keith Wright was involved in this matter. The • Commonwealth, at present, was intending to auction the land to the highest bidder.

Cr Bowen said council would prefer to get the land a lower price so that it could be used as part of the sewerage scheme. The area was one being considered for distribution of effluent. He expects the Commonwealth to see the council's point of view... "I can't see Mr Wright clobbering the people of Emu Park by saying the council had to bid for the land at auction". The aerial survey would showwhich site was most economic. Cr Bowen said the treatment works site would probably be in the general area between Hartley Street and Emu Park Road but council was open to suggestions from residents. The six week delay on costings was "unfortunate", according to Cr Bowen because it would mean the State-election would be over. He said that was unfortunate because the budding politicians would miss the chance to make offers to help ratepayers with costs. However, Cr Bowen said he did not care which party won the election because council would continue to be "light-footed" to get the possible deal for ratepayers.

Open forum for all candidates AN open forum for Broadsound electorate candidates has been organised by the Capricorn Coast Chamber of Commerce and Industry on Tuesday, November 7 at Bayview Tower. The theme of the 7pm meeting is The future of the Capricorn Coast in general and business and economic development in particular'. "It is not a debating contest," chamber president John Jackson said. "There are no prizes to be awarded for the best speaker or the most lucid. It is so the business community can be better informed. "The meeting is open to everyone, not just chamber members or businesses. "Candidates' names will be drawn out of a hat that night to be fair to everyone. "Each candidate will speak for seven minutes. After they have all spoken an hour has been made available for questions from the floor. Then each candidate will be given about five minutes to sum up," he said. "Question time has hopefully been made long enough for everyone to ask the candidates the things they want to know." Mr Jackson said it was an open forum and the meeting would stay with the theme. "We are a chamber of commerce and industry, not an inquiry. We encourage people to come along and ask the candidates questions about the Capricorn Coast and its future economic direction."

Causeway, followed by widening and construction of The Causeway has been brought forward to March 1990. "It is expect that the last rock from Kinka quarry to be placed at the end of the new marina wall will be carted this week," Mr Hinton said. "Rock cartage will continue for a further three weeks to bring the harbour wall up to full height and strength. "As soon as rock cartage stops, reconstruction of the road at the Kinka Beach section will start in line with previous Government commitments." Mr Hinton said the harbour was being dredged and when that is finished the State Government's commitment of S4.6 million in partnership with Keppel Gateway will be complete. "The further development of the marina and associated tourist facilities will be at the sole commercial discretion of the company," he said. "Rosslyn Bay Harbour will be a deep, safe anchorage for all harbour users with a minimum water depth of four metres. "Progress on the reconstruction of Kinka road at a cost of 5500,000 will be rapid on the Kinka section and along Mulambin Beach. "The resheeting of the remainder of the Scenic Highway between the quarry and the harbour, at a further cost of 5500,000, will be done following the construction of the new Causeway bridge."

No surprise for Pearce in personal attack from chairman ALP Broadsound candidate Jim Pearce said this week there was no surprise in Livingstone Shire chairman Cr John Bowen's personal attack. Since his election as chairman, Cr Bowen had locked in his fate with the Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton. "He has shamelessly allowed his position, and that of the council, to become politicised," Mr Pearce said. "Cr Bowen knows that Desperate Denis is Doomed and that's why he has announced his intentions not to contest a council position in 1991." Mr Pearce said it was quite obvious a shire chairman could not make his council a pl atform in the National Party without suffering the rejection the party would experience in the December 2 election. "I stand by my criticism of the council," he said. "When the in-fighting and incompetence of Livingstone Shire Council so adversely impacts on the development of the Coast, it must become a State issue and a concern to me as the next Member for Broadsound. "I have pledged my support to the current council. When elected, I plan to work in cooperation with them to achieve benefits for the residents and ratepayers of the entire shire. "There will be no special deals." Mr Pearce said it was not his intention to become involved with Cr Bowen in a mud-slinging match. "I have an election to win and I can spend my time better meeting and talking with local residents," he said. "As far as I am concerned, the issue is now as dead as Desperate Denis in the election."

Bowen lashes ALP's candidate Premier to visit after bias claim against council LIVINGSTONE Shire chairman Cr John Bowen said this week it was "sad that after 32 years in Opposition the Labor Party could not come up with a better candidate than Jim Pearce for Broadsound". He was replying to a story in last week's Capricorn Coast Mirror in which ALP Broadsound candidate Jim Pearce said Livingstone Shire Council "had a hopeless record for providing services to the people. It also has a record of political bias heavily in favour of the National Party". Mr Pearce also said council needed to spend more money on roads, and kerbing and channelling. His article was prompted by an advertisement placed by the council advising candidates to remove advertising signs alongside roadways. Mr Pearce said last week he would comply with the notice but requested council treat all candidates the same way. Cr Bowen said this week Mr Pearce (a Broadsound Shire councillor) should read the Fitzgerald Inquiry Report where he would learn which arm of government he was aiming at when he stood for State Governnient. "The report is quite clear on the fact that State Government should keep its nose out of Local Government," Cr Bowen said. He also asked Mr Pearce to state publicly why, after two invitations, he had not visited council to see how it operated nor to discuss the problems he said he had encountered while meeting electors. "Mr Pearce first involved himself in Livingstone Shire affairs about three months ago and I contacted him and invited him to visit council, see how it operates, meet the officers and staff and bring forward the problems he s aid he had found," Cr Bowen said. "He told me he would visit. After a while, when he hadn't called in, I contacted him a second time and reminded him that he was going to visit. He

still hasn't turned up." Cr Bowen said since Mr Pearce felt his campaign should involve Local Government, it was only fair to ask him why he wasn't standing shoulder-to-shoulder with the hundreds of Local Authorities throughout Australia, and all road and motorists' associations, in calling on the Federal Government for more funding for roads. In New South Wales, where there was a shocking death toll on the Hume Highway, 7 of every 10 accidents were being caused by the roads. "I'd like to know where he stands on this important issue ... or is he going to demonstrate the same, weak, slipperiness we've been seeing from the Opposition for the past 32 years?" he said. In a final blast, Cr Bowen said the ALP had claimed he (Cr Bowen) was friends with the National Party Government ... "but I can assure Mr Pearce that should he become the State Member, and should his party win government, and if that government can come up with money for Livingstone Shire, then I will be instan t friends with him. "I am for any government that can come up with the goods. "It is sad that he is the best the ALP can come up with. "As far as I am concerned, I am sick of party politics and, like many members of the public, I can't but think in a very cynical manner about their activities. "With the state of affairs of party politics in Australia, unless they clean up their own act, we're going to face many years in the future of unstable government."


Jim Pearce ALP

candidate for Broadsound The ONLY change for the Better A GOSS Labor team is ready to bring open, honest and accountable government to every corner of the State. All Wayne Goss is asking for is a chance. Just one chance to clean out the place once and for all. A chance to implement Fitzgerald totally. As the Labor candidate for Broadsound I am aware that Labor has the leadership, the policies and the team ready to bring good government back to Queensland. In Broadsound the last thing we want is to be part of a National Party-dominated coalition of weakness with the Liberals, a coalition too weak to implement the Fitzgerald report. Our task is clear. We must throw out desperate Denis and throw out this tired old government. They've been there too long ... far too long. Only then will Queensland start winning again. Authorised'.

LIVINGSTONE Shire Council has employed a community development officer funded by the State Government and shire. Council has leased the Blue Nursing Service premises in Normanby Street and that is not covered by the State Government grant. The premises will be shared by the Maternal and Child Welfare Department on certain days. The new officer is Social Worker Jane Wallace and she started on November 1. Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton said he had obtained 521,000 per year from the. Family Services Department to assist council with funding. "She will undertake the co-ordination of • •

community projects to assist families," Mr Hinton said. Livingstone Shire health and community services committee chairman Cr Maurie Webb said council was entering an exciting period of community projects with the employment of a community development officer. "Her priority is to research funds we have missed out on by way of subsidies from the. State and Federal Governments," he said. "Having a community development officer is a break away from the bread and butter issues of roads, streets, sewerage and water problems."

LIBERAL candidate for Broadsound Howard Rodda said camping facilities at the proposed Sandy Point environment park should be restricted. "I attended a public meeting in Yeppoon on Monday night about a management plan for Sandy Point," Mr Rodda said. "Bill Carter of W Carter and Associates spoke to interested people on a management plan for the area. "It is quite clear from the evidence submitted by locals who know the area that its ecology won't sustain unlimited traffic and occupation on a semi-permanent basis. "The need is for a boat ramp in the correct location, installation of toilets and rubbish disposal facilities for the use of day-trippers and fishing people," he said. "The chopping down of trees for firewood and indiscriminate use of 4WD vehicles on sand ridges can no longer be tolerated. "Of more concern to me is the basis of access through Iwasaki Sangyo Company land. The

original agreement between the company and the State Government was, to say the very least, more than favourable to the company. "The Government has made some attempt to wind back some of the earlier generosity, but it is intolerable that locals and visitors to our lovely Coast wanting access to these popular recreation areas can only do so by courtesy of Iwasaki Sangyo," he said. "Management changes, policies change ... there is no guarantee of permanency for the present arrangement."

New boat ramp for Corio Bay A NEW boat ramp estimated to cost between $50,000 and $70,000 is to be built at Kelly's Landing, Corio Bay, using Harbours and Marine funds. Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton announced the construction of the ramp at a meeting on Monday night called to discuss management of and access to two environmental parks at Sandy Point,, north of Capricorn International Resort. The Premier's Department, at Mr Hinton's request, commissioned W Carter and Associates, a management consultant, to provide a management plan for the area. "Various options for access were discussed," Mr Hinton said. "They included resumption of the private road owned by the Iwasaki Sangyo Company by the Main Roads Department, resumption by Livingstone Shire Council, or the provision of a legal easement over the road to provide for unfettered public access. "The latter option was strongly supported. Main Roads would have to make a contribution towards the road's maintenance," he said. "Mr Carter outlined a comprehensive management strategy, including sand dune protection, camping areas, road useage and plant protection. It was well received by the meeting. "He also said garbage collection and other maintenance could be done by private contractor," Mr Hinton said. "Mr Carter's report will be with the Premier within four weeks and then the Premier's Department will make adequate funds available to implement all recommendations."

Regarding the BLATANT LABOR PROPAGANDA repeatedly attacking the Queensland Zonal System - "The Gerrymander" FACT: LABOR HAS A GREAT RECORD OF ESTABLISHING "GERRYMANDERS" THEMSELVES

WE ALL KNOW: • LABOR invented the Queensland zonal system (the "gerrymander") prior to 1957 • Many of the great western democracies recognise the tyranny of distance on fair representation, and have a zonal system - eg, Canada, England. • On present boundaries & on a 2 party preferred basis, LABOR can win Government in Queensland with 51.4% of the vote. • The Queensland Government has set up the Electoral and Administrative Review Commission (EARC) to review the Electoral system. An all party committee will oversee the activities of the commission. • The Queensland Nationals have undertaken to accept the umpire's (EARC) decision.

BUT LABOR WON'T TELL YOU: • Under LABOR'S new plan, the so-called 'one vote, one value' proposal, 6 country seats will disappear and go to the Brisbane area. On a two party preferred basis, • In New South Wales, the Coalition Parties had to win over 52% of the vote to oust the Unsworth LABOR Government. • Federally, to beat the Hawke LABOR Government at the last election, the conservatives would have had to win 52.6% of the vote. • In Victoria, the Cain LABOR Government was returned to office with just 48.7% of the vote. • In South Australia, the Bannon LABOR Government can be returned to office with just 47.8% of the vote. • In Western Australia, the Dowding LABOR Government was returned to office with a bare 46.5% of the vote.

DENIS ACHIEVES_ Upgrade Emu ParkRockhampton Road THE Rockhampton to Emu Park Road is an important link between the two centres with many daily commuters and holiday makers using the road. It is a vital part of our tourist scenic loop for the Coast. On becoming Member for Broadsound in 1986, I have achieved a new overpass named Ellr ot Overpass replacing dangerous Sleipner Bridge over the railway line, at a cost of S1.7 million, and further major roadworks at a cost of 5900,000 is to start in January bypassing the dangerous Black's Bridge and creating a new turn off to Nerimbera. I am concentrating on the road in the North Rockhampton electorate, where widening works are being carried out and further major upgrading is planned, due to the heavy truck traffic. The dangerous gates at lakes Creek Meatworks must be replaced with an underpass for cattle and the dangerous bend across the rail line straightened & eliminated. I am proud of my initiative in providng S35,000 for tourist loop signs that have doubled the tourist traffic coming through Emu Park and Yeppoon. Much has been done - more will be achieved - a commitment honoured - a Broadsound achievement.

Public meeting over Pivot roads A PUBLIC meeting has been called by residents concerned about the use of roads by the Pivot Group to transport mineral sands to a dry mill in Yeppoon. The meeting is in Byfield Hall on Thursday, November 9 at 7.30pm. "Do you live on any of these roads? Byfield (to Coobetrie turn-off), Woodbury, Adelaide Park, Limestone Creek, Old Byfield, Kreis, Barmaryee or Racecourse," Byfield resident Joan Furness said this week. "These are the road access options cited by Pivot for the proposed transportation of sand dunes from Shoalwater Bay Training Area to the dry mill site next to the racecourse. "They intend to extract ilmenite, rutile, zircon and other minerals including monazite. "Everyone is welcome to the meeting. It is time to voice your concern again. The Federal Government has allowed Pivot three more months to improve on its EIS and one month of that time has gone." Mrs Furness said Byfield residents were concerned about the proposed 80 trucks, carrying 25 tons, using the roads each day. "We are also concerned about the destruction of a unique and pristine area and the fish breeding grounds," she said. The residents have invited Member for Capricornia Keith Wright to address their concerns at a public meeting in the Byfield Hall on November 9 at 7.30pm.

Chamber arranges free talks for Coast small business operators REGIONAL Visit Weeks provide an opportunity for business people to take advantage of services offered by the Stpall Business Development Corporation. Capricorn Coast Chamber of Commerce and Industry has arranged for Capricorn Coast business proprietors to have a seminar and free private consultations with a SBDC officer on Thursday, June 9. The free consultations are between 9am and 2pm and the merchandising seminar is from 4pm to 6pm in Yeppoon Town Hall's meeting room. The seminar cost is S10. "The consultations can be at a proprietor's premises or in the meeting room," Chamber president John Jackson said. "The chamber has invited the corporation in the past and arranged appointments. We don't have a phone and the Capricorn Coast Mirror has offered to make appointments for the corporation. "If any business proprietor wants to have a free consultation with a corporation officer, just phone 39 4244. When you make the appointment say whether it is on your premises or at the town hall," he said. "Livingstone Shire Council has made the meeting room available so the consultations will be private. "The merchandising seminar is open to everyone, but we need to know numbers. Please phone the Mirror, 39 4244, by 5pm Tuesday, November 7 and leave your name and contact phone number. • "The seminar is in two sections. The first hour is a sit down time with discussion from Mr Thomson and the second hour is practical. We will inspect town shop windows with Mr Thomson explaining whether a window has been dressed ideally or if it needs upgrading. "We asked for this seminar to help local businesses in merchandising their windows ... that's where the customer looks before they enter a premises. We hope the seminar can be used as a part of our new direction ... lighting up Yeppoon with coloured lights," he said. "The lightswill attract people to window shop at night and maybe we could dress up our windows to take advantage of that. "This will bring more business to those who have used the seminar to its fullest." SBDC was established by the Queensland government to help small business to prosper and grow. "Our resources are directed towards developing more successful performances in as many small businesses as possible," SBDC advisor Chris Thomson said. "This is achieved by providing business owners/managers with a free and impartial advi-

sory service. "The regional visit weeks ensure services are available to rural areas," he said. "Small business makes up 96 per cent of private enterprise in our community. One of our objectives is to provide each member of the small business community with access to basic understanding of sound business management." A seminar has been organised in Rockhampton on Wednesday, November 8 between 6.30pm and 9.30pm. "It deals with financial planning and answers your questions on what documents to prepare, keep and maintain for future use," he said. "It will establish a system of documentation which is simple and easy to understand. "You will be able to plan for future expenditure, so you know where and when your money is needed and never again be caught out by that unforeseen payment." Business people interested in attending the seminar can phone Jan Housecraft, toll free, (008) 177324. The Queensland Confederation of Industry in Rockhampton, 27 1278, has SBDC brochures.

Grants for museums THREE Livingstone Shire museums have received State Government grants worth $8400. Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton said this eek the Capricorn Coast Historical Society received S2700, Emu Park Historical Mt: cum Society 52700 and Marlborough IV -.cum 53000.

WEBBER TO RESCIND MOTION ON SEWER SITE DIVISION One Councillor Lloyd Webber has given notice to rescind his own motion siting the Emu Park treatment works on the recreation reserve off Hartley Street. He said this week he wanted to remove this motion so that a public meeting could be held to receive input from all interested residents on where the plant should be sited. He would like the meeting held as soon as possible, perhaps within two weeks, but he had heard that no meeting could be held for at least six weeks. He suspected the timing of the meeting was designed to remove it from the run-up to the State election. He said the issue had become a political football. The "political football" was kicked around at a meeting held in front of the Zilzie Store on Tuesday and his rescission motion was lodged at council while this meeting was being held. Cr Webber was puzzled about the meeting because it showed there had been a "total lack of communications between council and residents" on siting of the treatment works. Yet he said he had known the treatment works were going to be placed somewhere between Hartley Street and Emu Park-toRockhampton Road for at least eight years. Maps showed there was a sanitary reserve near the Rockhampton Road and he had always thought this was going to be the site. In fact, at the latest council meeting, he had moved a motion that this was the area where

the treatment works should be located. However he learned that some councillors were not aware of its location so he moved that council have an on-site inspection that day. As well as all councillors, shire clerk Jim Brown and design engineer Mike Paine, two Emu Park Progress Association representatives had joined the inspection. They were shown the sanitary reserve site and the recreation reserve. "There was general agreement from everyone that the recreation reserve was the best site," Cr Webber said. "Expert opinion offered was that prevailing winds would carry any smell away from Hartley Street homes toward the airstrip. "Also, we were told that because council was intending to build a different type of treatment works from the one in Yeppoon, there would be less smell generated and it would dissipate before reaching the airstrip." As a result, when the councillors returned to council that afternoon, Cr Webber moved a motion to make the recreation reserve the site. It was carried with only one dissenter. Cr Webber said he had considered what he would feel if he was living in Hartley Street and, after weighing the facts, felt "comfortable" with the decision. "But I'm open to suggestions on other sites." He said the lack of communications concerned people who had moved to Emu Park and Zilzie in the past year. They were appar-

Hinton steps in to guarantee all residents will be heard on site

A ROW has developed over the siting of the treatment works for the Emu Park sewerage scheme and Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton has stepped in with a guarantee for residents that their wishes will be heard. Council decided at its latest meeting to establish the treatment works on the recreation reserve off Hartley Street, somewhere between 350m. and 600. from the nearest houses. The site would be screened from homes and expert opinion said prevailing wind would blow away from Hartley Street. But the recreation reserve is not owned by the council ... it is State Government land that can be handed over after a request from council. Mr Hinton, after attending a meeting at Zilzie on Tuesday, issued a Press release in which he stated categorically that he would stop the government from handing over that land unless residents were adequately consulted. He said council would not proceed with sewerage plant construction at that site until a total assessment on all alternative sites had been costed and put on display for public comment and to a public meeting. He said he had inspected the preferred site with a council officer on Tuesday morning. It was 450 metres west of Hartley Street. He then attended the meeting where he said 50 angry residents of the Zilzie area discussed the issue. He was handed a petition signed by 82 people objecting to the proposed site. He sent the petition to council. Mr Hinton told the meeting he would call a public meeting with the council within a week to discuss with the public, the site options and costs. But this meeting would now be put back. Mr Hinton said he had an assurance from shire chairman Cr John Bowen that council would not proceed until the public was fully consulted.

"At this stage, the council cannot put up fully costed alternatives and the public meeting will be held as soon as the options are available," Mr Hinton said. He had told the meeting the State Government could block construction of the plant at the present site by not approving a rezoning from recreation reserve to local government reserve. "However this would be a last option. It is far preferable that council takes a final decision on the site after full and open consultation with the public in the Zilzie and Emu Park area. "I am totally assured byCr Bowen and other councillors that this will occur before any application for a rezoning or construction works are undertaken. "I give the community my full undertaking that this will occur - however it cannot occur within one week as indicated at the meeting because the necessary facts will not be available." Mr Hinton has been involved with the sewerage scheme for almost three years culminating in the Country Cabinet Meeting approving a commitment for a S2 million loan, interestfree for three years. Mr Hinton said this week that loan had been agreed to on the basis of costings supplied by council and those costings would have been based on an expected site for the treatment works. The loan had been subject to nine months' negotiations with the Water Resources Commission because council had to satisfy the commission it had a viable scheme. The S2 million interest-free loan was designed to assist council make its non-viable scheme viable. Mr Hinton said he had also asked for the public meeting to include time for discussion on the transfer of the industrial estate site to Hartley Street.

ently unaware of the area being considered for the treatment works and were concerned about both smell and property values. He wants a public meeting so that everyone can have their say ... "It's the biggest decision that will be made for decades in this area," he said. "It's irreversible. Once the treatment plant is built it's there to stay."

heart. Mrs Alma Atkinson left her wallet at Savemore Newsagency last week. She didn't notice it was missing until she arrived home. She had gone to the newsagency straight from the bank and had withdrawn money. Mrs Atkinson had quite a bit of identification in the wallet and hoped someone would find and return it to her or hand it in. She was sure she had left it at the newsagency and rang to see if someone had handed it in. It was. Now the trouble is no-one remembers who handed it in. Mrs Atkinson is overjoyed at the return of her wallet, and it was intact. She would like to thank the person who handed it in, so the Mirror has volunteered to be the in-between. Phone 39 4244. Mrs Atkinson is one of the strong and long-term workers for the Senior Citizens Benefit Housing Society auxiliary. *** NOW here's a sad one.

Keppel Gateway Marina releases Master Concept for bay project KEPPEL G atew ay M arina Resort' s final Master Concept plan has been released detailing how the project will look after the components worth probably more than $80 million are completed. Project director John Davies said the Master Concept could still be changed but the plan meets statutory and Harbours and Marine requirements, the company's own marketing analysis and landscaping input from experts to create a site that would blend with the adjacent National Park. The concept incorporates three areas: • A public area including a tourist boat terminal, adjacent bus terminal, backpackers hostel, specialty retail area, tavern and 120-room hotel. • Residential area with a range of villas, townhouses and condominiums ultimately catering for 300 residences. • The actual marina is the third area of the concept offering 350 berths with on-shore dry storage, marina management and yacht club facilities. A public boardwalk joins the three areas.

Mr Davies said while there were three separate areas they would not be developed individually as three stages. He expects work will start on parts of all three simulaneously, according to demand. The construction of the actual marina site (seawalls, reclamation and harbour dredging) is still going ahead with Leightons due to finish in January. Mr Davies said the Master Concept plan now released enables final market feasibility studies to determine staging of the project. Engineers are now working toward final detail design of civil works which immediately follow Leightons' work. The civil works include a 2km road from Vin E. Jones Memorial Drive to the outer arm of the seawall; carparks, site drainage and services. The civil works pave the way to start the marina, residential and boat terminal construction. "The project is now well under way," Mr Davies said. "Leightons are in the final stages and the Master Concept allows us to show potential tenants what is envisaged. "It has taken months of working on plans, discarding them and starting again but now have it all together ... this is the way the Keppel Gateway Marina Resort will look." The eight-member concept planning team was led by former Expo project manager Bob Roche. Mr Davies said the team was commissioned to come up with a concept that brought together the adjacent National Park with the new land created within the harbour. "Landscaping, to naturally blend the new and the old environments, was uppermost in planners' minds," Mr Davies said. "There was also the paramount need to relate the entire concept to its ultimate use, a safe, deepwater, all-weather harbour ... the marine gateway to the Keppels." The more than $80 million ultimate cost estimate is a projected figure which is a guide to the future overall development.

Tanzer urges moderation for schoolies THIS week's police message from Yeppoon police officer-in-charge Sgt lc Ken Tanzer is for students finishing school at the end of the year. "There are lots of parties at this time of the year for students leaving their school years behind them," he said. "They enjoy themselves and that's great. All I ask is that the students use some commonsense. "The majority is under drinking age. Underage drinkers may appear before a court to tell the magistrate why they were drinking alcohol. Their parents are asked to accompany them to court if the people involved are under 17 years of age. "There is nothing wrong with enjoying yourself, but everything in moderation. Use some common sense," Sgt Tanzer said. "Say farewell to your friends and your school years, but make sure you don't mess up your future."

WOW, THAT'S G OOD, SAYS MINISTER AT T.A.F.E. OPENING "WOW, that's good," Employment, Training and Industrial Affairs Minister Vince Lester said on Saturday morning when unveiling a triptych at the Capricorn Coast TAFE Centre. The triptych, a colourful montage of Capricorn Coast community life created by Marie Biggins, was the Coast TAFE's idea to replace the standard plaque that Ministers usually unveil. Mr Lester obviously agreed with the choice. After his "wow" comment he said opening plaques was "such a dull affair". The unveiling came after a series of speeches that praised the Coast TAFE, its staff, students and community council at the official opening on Saturday morning. Mr Lester's speech, mostly off the cuff, met an enthusiastic reception. He touched on a variety of topics from slashing red tape in government to learning to bowl bumpers for a cricket match later in the day when he was due to bowl against his ALP opponent in Peak Downs ... and he had heard the opponent had also been practising bumpers. Mr Lester was the Minister who put the need for a TAI-E on the Capricorn Coast to the Country Cabinet meeting held in March this year and came away with approval. Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton had earlier told the crowd how a garden spider had provided the Coast with the funding for the TAFE. Mr Hinton had taken the proposal to Mr Lester and had been told to refer it to then Finance Minister Brian Austin. Mr Austin had said no funds were available. Mr Lester, while favouring the project, could not act without funding. Then Mr Austin was bitten by a spider while working in his garden and he missed the Country Cabinet meeting in Yeppoon. Seizing the opportunity, Mr Lester pushed the proposal through Cabinet in March this year and- announced straight after that the project could go ahead. Mr Hinton and Mr Lester set up a community council (chairman Bruce McGregor, Mick Cranny, Barry Schmidt, Suzy Watson, Crs John Dowie and Mike Prior) and, by the end of June, a three-year lease had been negotiated on the Anglican Conference Centre, the centre had been repainted and repaired and renamed Housden Place and 200 studentswere enrolled. On Saturday, Mr Lester remarked that the

18 - Capricorn Coast Mirror November 3 - November 9, 1989 • LETTERS TO THE EDITOR • LETTERS TO THE EDITOR • LETTERS TO THE EDITOR •IETTERS TO THE EDITOR •

Lammermoorians lose to LSC grader IT goes without saying that throughout history, and depending on his choice of habitat, man has been compelled to contend with that region's climatic phenomena. For me, poignant memories of the Sahara's sand and dust storms were forcibly re-incarnated during the weekend October 20/22 as I feverishly laboured throughout a period which should have been one of restful enjoyment. Sadly and mundanely, the time was spent washing and cleaning floors, windows, furniture and newly-painted front patio walls, in an attempt to regain the standard to which I am accustomed and one which was certainly in evidence when I departed for Rockhampton at 8am on Friday, the fateful 20th! And if, dear reader, your curiosity impels you to become further embroiled in this, my tale of anguish and woe, let me first assure you that we Lammermoorians were not the victims of a naturally created 'Land of the Pharaohs-type Occurrence' at that point in time. Quite on the contrary! Our harrowing clean-up - and here I include many of my neighbours - emanated from a man-inspired, man-authorised, man-conducted activity, expedited and delicately harmonised with the sheer misuse of a man-made leviathan; the servile yet lethal Livingstone Shire Grader, no less! Could it have been a demonstrative practical gesture of gratitude for the payment of the recent exhorbitant six-monthly rate demands, simultaneously combined with one superb 'beautifying!!' attempt to equate and bring our chosen ambience into line with the Capricorn Coast's entries and roadsides in general? Conjecture as I may on this matter, and in spite of again hearing the oft-repeated red herring- 'blame Main Roads!' - it is imperative that we who reside in this tourist-orientated, holiday-making township if defaced roadsides and of sterile lunar-like barreness now point, with decisive urgency, a finger of accusation, at our inspiration-starved, tunnel-visioned, trivial-minded, couldn't care-a-stuff, junket-journeying and complacently-unctuous man-chosen pillars of society; the strategists who operate from within the bunker-room walls of the 'Palace of Pfriseessient/Dissension?' Yeppoon's very own Taj Mahal! And so it is dear reader, that as I watch the traffic hurtling up and down, and 'survey through the powdery haze this newly-acquired and wondrous strip of barren-brown, I am inspired by Francis Bacon's prettily devised utterances (circa 1600) when musing on Aesop:' "The fly sat upon the axletree of the chariot wheel and said, what a dust I raise". Dust indeed, may only be matter in the wrong place, but would anyone care to share my deliciously-gritty cucumber sandwich? - D Keith B Griffiths, 146 Lammermoor Beach.

Cooking peacocks could be answer TALK of the peacock invasion of Kinka Beach in last week's Mirror reminded me of the gem of a letter written by my husband Norman, published in this paper some years ago. It went as follows: "In Europe during the Middle Ages when knights were bold and ladies fair and virtuous (or was it fairly virtuous) and all Australians were suntanned, the Indian bird, the Peacock, was esteemed by gastronomes as a rare delicacy. When cooked the bird was set before the master of the house or the most honoured guest. Only the most noble were allowed to carve or have a portion. It was the custom for the carver, and those who had a slice, to take an

oath promising some knightly deed. The Peacock, unlike native ducks and geese, is not a protected bird. The method of cooking is exactly the same as for pheasant, which it closely resembles in taste. Here at Kinka Beach we are fortunate in having a number of these birds living off the fat of the land, not protected by any law or regulation, and very edible. The only thing is catching them. Salt on their tails is no use. Either wring their necks or shoot them. Unfortunately nowadays I am slow on my feet and do not have a gun. But if anyone wants some recipes I will be quite happy to supply them, without inquiring into their ancestry, noble or otherwise, dexter or sinister." There was a serious side to this letter. Knowing that Peacocks are introduced, living on seeds, insects and small reptiles and possibly upsetting the local ecology, in addition to their nuisance aspect, Norman hoped someone might take up his suggestion. We heard subsequently that Peacock was on the menu at the wedding ceremony of a local grazier ... but that was all. His suggestion .could be one solution to the problem, but like many other people, I'm a softie when it comes to killing a beautiful creature. Perhaps rifling their nests for tasty bantamsized eggs would help cut down the growing population. Searching out nests in not easy - I have only ever found one sitting female. The Peacock could become quite a problem over the years. - Moib' Crawford, Natalie Place, Kinka Beach.

Women can grow at Forum meetings AS we head rapidly towards the end of 1989 and the 1990s, one can only wonder what the next decade will bring, both worldwide and on the national front, and how the ensuing issues may affect us as individual citizens. There are now more advantages and equal opportunities for people in the fields of business, professions or should they wish, education, than were present 10 years ago. More women, having reared families to a more independent status, are freer to engage in alternative areas of their choosing. Some may opt for further education or for employment, if available, on a permanent basis. Whatever the options - confidence, ability and assertiveness are of great importance for the challenging and steadfast action in the pursuits sought by individual applicants. It is a tough world and the competition is keen. Forum, a women's club, in its goals of public speaking and meeting procedure - a skill once learned never goes astray - has given women a chance to grow and strengthen in personal awareness and self confidence and seek the many options available to them. There are many clubs in operation throughout Queensland where communication skills play a major part. As a strong member of this association for four and a half years, I can attest to the confidence shown as members have joined, becoming strong and competent speakers on set and impromptu subjects and showing the ability to effectively run meetings. Capricorn Coast Forum Number 53 welcomes inquiries and interest from any women who feel Forum could help them as an interesting affiliation and in the quest for learning the skills of speaking to groups with similar interests, who show and extend their help within this club. . We meet the second Wednesday of each month at 7.30pm for fellowship and 8pm sharp for the meeting. Any queries can be answered by phoning Anne, 39 6560 or Jan, 39 2130. Forum looks forward to welcoming you ... we may just be the beginning of a whole new concept. - Jan Edwards, 64 Braithwaite Stiret, Yeppoon.

Cavaliers Singapore lychees down Colts from Queensland! IN his letter to the editor (September 29) C Thompson complains about the import of pineapples from the Philippines and canned tomatoes from Thailand. Mr Thompson should understand that trade is a two-way matter. For instance last year in Singapore I bought lychees in a local market. When I queried the high price I was told this was because they had to be imported from Queensland. Thailand is a country with which I have a fair acquaintance and if Mr Thompson were to go there he would see that the supermarkets carry a large range of Australian produce. Nearly all the dairy products are Australian and in addition Thailand imports many million dollars.worth of Australian wheat and barley. It also spends over S5 million on Australian meat and our meat industry is trying very hard to expand the market there for beef products and live cattle. Last year a Thai delegation visited Rockhampton to look at the possibilities. Nor are agricultural products the end of the story. Thailand imports large quantities of Australian manufactured and metal goods such as aluminium and aluminium alloys: In 1987-88 Australian exports to Thailand totalled over 5317 million (I can supply a detailed breakdown if necessary) and among the goods exported were photographic supplies to the value of S9.5 million which probably came largely from the Kodak company the government is presently supporting financially. I am not encouraging anyone to support the present-government. I am simply stating the facts. You cannot expect the Thais to buy from us if we do not buy from them. - Norman Howarth, 16 Ocean Parnde, Yeppoon.

Come on Hinton, listen to our needs I, TOO, live adjacent to the Yeppoon Readymix plant and am made to suffer from this heavy industrial plant which both State and Local Governments allowed to be established without adequate town planning or an environmental impact study. I have heard mumblings in the past about the plant being moved into a low population density area somewhere out of town, but of course the cost would be enormous. But nevertheless governments in the future, and also heavy industry, might think twice about moving into a light industry zoned land which borders a residential area. The plant must be moved. At 3pm when the high schoolers are crossing, Tanby Road and the cement trucks are thundering down Tanby Road, swirling dust as they go, this is a busy time which is exacerbated by the trucks. I know one long time resident of Charles Street who was eventually driven from her home because of chronic asthma due to dust. Almost every house on Tanby Road which directly cops the full effect of the continuous blast of dust from the cement works, is, in fact, for sale. People are being driven from their homes! Come on Mr Hinton, listen to our needs. - G O'Brien, 15 Tanby Road, Yeppoon.

Morgan Crigan welcomed into ranks of junior basketballers UNDER 8 junior basketballers welcomed new player Morgan Crigan to the game played in the Recreation Council basketball stadium on Sunday. Morgan warmed to the game and participated eagerly. He made several attempts to shoot a goal but was unsuccessful. Rachel Farr showed great improvement in her game, particularly with her skill at dribbling the ball down the court. Callie Lynch also exhibited steady improvement and played a more active role in the game. The most notable effort was from Darren Walter who, with the co-operation of his team members and the opposition, carefully played the ball down to his goal end to make several 31 attempts at scoring. All players and spectators offered Darren encouragement. Scorers: Damien Barry (3), Matthew Kelso (1) and Melanie Elstob (1). The under 10 game was strongly contested with most players attempting and shooting goals. Gavin Walter top-scored with four goals one point, closely followed by Roy Jackson with three.

Owen Kelso scored two goals one point. Emily Symes and Grant McCombe both scored two goals and Kerrin Caulfield, Matthew Kelso and Alexander Sykes were successful with one each. Matthew Newmann and Ken-in Caulfield played steadily and Kerrin showed some good attacking play that resulted in five jump balls. Stephen Schmidt played well and attempted to score but was only successful with one point when awarded free shots at goal. Under 12 Richard Corbett, in his second game, topped the goal score with seven ... a commendable effort. Jay Keohane played strongly, especially when defending and was successful at shooting five goals. A much improved game was played by Kelly Marshman last week. She attempted several goals and scored one and was noted for some good efforts at dribbling and passing the ball. Fiona Cumming's height was an asset to her team when rebounding under the rings. Fiona scored a goal. Other goals: Cameron Blake (5), Adrian Moore (4), Jordan Crigan and Owen Kelso one each.

SOMEONE left a pig's head on the lawn in front of Yeppoon Police Station on Saturday night ... that could be considered funny by some (many?) except that officer-incharge Sgt 1/c Ken Tanzer said the pig's head was mutilated; horribly mutilated. He and his fellow officers can cope with that sort of thing so the joke, protest, whatever, fell flat with them ... but Ken Tanzer said it did not fall flat with the children who attended church in the CWA hall next door on Sunday morning. The mutilated head did nothing for their joy that day. It was removed as soon as police realised it was there ... but how many children saw it? • • • YEPPOON Rotary president Bruce Towle was "murdered" last week at a progressive dinner ... fellow Rotarians and wives were gathered in a club member's home when the lights went off, there was a scream and, when the lights came on, Bruce Towle lay "dead" with a knife sticking out of him. Suspicion fell on all Rotarians and their wives because of information planted on the "body". Anyway, Rotarians being Rotarians, they finished the first course at that house and set out for Bruce's for the second course. He lives way out on a dark, dusty Howes Road and the Rotarians and wives, riding on a chartered bus, were amazed to see a ghost, with halo, flapping its arms in the breeze in the bus' headlights. Of course it was Bruce Towle who, being president, obviously assumed he would automatically get angel status. It was a great joke and the progressive dinner proceeded throughout its courses. But one member reckons the joke had an even funnier side because before the bus turned up, Bruce (Angel) Towle had flapped around in front of another set of headlights thinking they belonged to the bus ... but they stopped, did a quick turn and headed back down the road. Bruce is the only one with the real story ... and he's not telling!!! • . • W'HO'S the Yeppoon doctor who attended a medical reunion at the Hyatt Resort at Coolum ... and forgot the Slip, Slop, Slap? Seems he wasn't the only one to forget to practise what he preaches. The whole dazzle of doctors settled in for breakfast on the terrace, scheduled to last just the length of a doctor's appointment and instead, because they thoroughly enjoyed themselves, the breakfast lasted as long as patients usually sit in the waiting room. The result was a dazzle of blindingly pink doctors. And boy, was it pink ... the Coast's representative had enjoyed some protection by wearing sunglasses with the result he returned to work with two white areas in a pink face. Pity his sunglasses had been on at an angle ... gave him a rather wicked look! • • • DAYLIGHT saving's introductions had its moments on the weekend ... Suzy received a call from Graham Hansen of Hansen's Carpet and Curtains, that the next day, at 7am, he would be laying the carpet in the Capricorn Coast Mirror office. There were no options ... the two-year-old carpet was running out of warranty and it was time she organised herself. That night, bubbling with joy, she remarked to "Old Baldy" that they had to be at the office at 7am. He, smelling a rat, asked was that 7am real time or daylight saving time. She hadn't asked and it was too late to check. It didn't matter. Graham Hansen phoned them so early there was a smell of sparrows in the air. He was ready and they had 30 minutes to get to the office. They did, and they had the last laugh, because he had to help them shift everything before laying the carpet. Anyway, he glued the carpet down in one room and started on the second then noticed Suzy was sound asleep on the freshly-glued carpet. He didn't mind until she started snoring ... then he kicked her in the ribs, told her the glue wasn't thy and he had warned her not to vacuum the carpet for two days and snoring, of her type, counted as vacuuming!!!
