$1000 reward for strychnine baiter POWER Street resident Peter Hayward has offered $1000 reward for information leading to the conviction of the person, or persons, who strychnine baited his son's dog. Paddy, an eight-month-old Border Collie, Blue Heeler cross, died in agony k late Thursday night watched by his 14`"-' year-old owner, Morgan Hayward. Mr Hayward returned home to find the dog had already died. Three children had watched powerless as the strychnine slowly killed the family pet between 9.30pm, when they found him, and 10.15pm. The children did not know what to do and had thought the pup had been involved in a fight. It is not known how long the pup suffered alone before being found. Mr Hayward said he was convinced the animal had taken a strychnine bait but decided not to act until he had confirmation. He took the body to a Coast veterinarian who referred him to a Rockhampton veterinarian. Samples were taken from the dog's stomach and sent to Brisbane for analysis. Death by a strychnine bait was confirmed. Mr Hayward had already told police of the dog's death and announced his offer of a $1000 reward. "I want to find the person who could do such a thing and I want that person punished," Mr Hayward said. "Paddy was only a pup, a child's pet. Morgan is terribly upset." Paddy was no angel, as anyone who

Reward stands for other pets owns a pup would know. He dug holes in the garden and barked occasionally at dogs outside the property ... but Mr Hayward said nothing Paddy did was enough to make someone want to bait him. For Morgan, the loss is harder to take than for most boys because Paddy was not a dog picked out of pet shop window or from a pedigreed litter. He and his father had been horse-riding in Sydney earlier this year with friends. The weather was abysmal, with rain sheeting down as they rode through the bush. They heard a noise, stopped to investigate, and found Paddy, a just-born puppy, still with his eyes closed. He had been dumped in the bush, unwanted. Morgan took responsibility for him. He fed him with an eyedropper until he was able to take solids. "Paddy should have died from pneumonia that day in the bush but Morgan saved him," Mr Hayward said. "He had been taking him to obedience school at Cooee Bay and Paddy was becoming a very attractive dog." Mr Hayward said Paddy was no trouble but there had been a complaint

about him in the past fortnight. "I want whoever did this to be found and punished," Mr Hayward said. "I will give $1000 to anyone who provides the information the police need. "I realise there is only a slim chance of catching whoever did this but I want them to have a few sleepless nights. I want them to worry about whether anyone saw them throw something to Paddy. "Perhaps someone saw them getting the strychnine, or overheard them talking about getting even with the dog. I want whoever did this to keep looking over their shoulder." Mr Hayward said he was so upset at the loss of Paddy he wanted to do something for anyone who has ever had a dog baited. "The $1000 reward stands for Paddy for a reasonable amount of time. If it becomes obvious that no-one is going to come forward, I will make the same $1000 available as a reward for anyone who gives information about any dog baiting," Mr Hayward said. "Maybe this sort of money will deter people from thinking they can get away with baiting someone's pet. Maybe some other pet will be saved and other children will not have to watch such a cruel death the way mine did." Information can be given to Yeppoon Police (39 1400).


Vet: Paddy suffered up to 2 hours PADDY died from a strychnine bait, a Rockhampton veterinarian confirmed on Tuesday morning. He said a sample was taken from the dog's stomach contents and sent to Pathology Services in Brisbane for analysis which confirmed the original diagnosis by both a Coast and the Rockhampton veterinarian. Paddy would have suffered from 20 minutes to two hours. The Rockhampton veterinarian said the bait would have been administered with meat or some pet food. The amount of strychnine that killed Paddy would have been sufficient to kill a child, most certainly one of the same weight, and could have killed an adult. The veterinarian said the way to tell whether a dog had been given a strychnine bait was to look for signs of stiffness.

The dog moves stiffly after ingesting the bait and is very susceptible to sound and touch. At this point, if a dog is patted on the head, it will go into extended rigidity with its head well back and legs extended. The strychnine works on the nervous system. If the owner can get the dog to a veterinarian within 15 minutes, there was a good chance it could be saved. The veterinarian gives the dog an emetic to empty the stomach and muscle relaxant to control the convulsions. If necessary, the veterinarian will keep the dog under anaesthetic up to 24 hours. This treatment overrides the effect the strychnine has on the nervous system. A lot depends on how much strychnine is used in the bait. Of 10 dogs taken to his surgery still alive, he would save about eight. He said once you've seen a dog suffering at a surgery, it was not hard to diagnose.

The veterinarian said because strychnine was used so widely on properties there was "lots of it about in tins under houses". Some years ago, anyone who could prove they owned a property could buy strychnine over the counter at a pharmacy. Both David Higgins of David Higgins Chemist and Kevin Brumm of Stewart and Brumm Pharmacy said it had been relatively easy about five to six years ago to buy strychnine but laws had been tightened since then and permits were required. Both said it was unlikely new stock would have been used in last week's baiting. It was more likely old stock, kept under a house for years, would have been used. They said there would be plenty around. Years ago it was used to control annoying possums.

AROUND-THE-CLOCK POLICE SERVICE IN 1990...ON WEEKEND . YEPPOON Police Station will operate `" around-the-clock on Fridays and Saturdays by about the middle of next year, Police Minister Vince Lester said on Friday. He said the 24-hour service on weekends was a realistic target that would be achieved. He was giving the government's reply to Opposition Leader Wayne Goss' offer of a 24-houra-day police station at Yeppoon. Mr Lester said his offer of a weekend around-the-clock service was already moving ahead. He had visited Yeppoon Police Station, spoken to officer-in-charge Sgt lc Ken Tanzer and heard what was needed. Asa result of a submission from Sgt Tanzer, Mr Lester announced he was making Yeppoon a training station and providing an additional trainee. It was announced last month that two trainees would be transferred to Yeppoon and Mr Lester announced a third trainee on Friday. He said this would lift the number of police from eight recently to 11 ... six uniformed officers, two CIB and three trainees. The minimum staff needed for a seven-daya-week, 24-hour-a-day police station were 20. Mr Lester said he could not approve an additional 12 police for Yeppoon. They were not available. They would also not be available for Mr Goss should he become Premier. The reality he had found, since becoming l'olice Minister, was that 400 new police were being trained annually and 200 police were leaving the force each year. An extra 800 police were required throughout the State and, under the present system, this would take four years to achieve. But he said he had undertaken to speed up recruitment and training by looking at opening a second police academy ... a duplicate of the Oxley Police Academy. Iri addition, he was working toward making it easier for police who had left to return to the force. Also, he was looking at ways of getting police out of the stations and into police work by removing some of their administrative tasks. In an address to Yeppoon Police and Coast business people invited to a meeting at Keppel Bay Sailing Club, Mr Lester said he had acted quickly since becoming Minister. He had approved promotions rather than leave them in limbo, some for as long as two years; appointed a commissioner; ordered the

Mr Lester was accompanied by Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton and spoke to officer-in-charge Sgt lc Ken Tanzer. bullet-proof vests that had tested to be the best available; appointed 11 additional police to the Stock Squad and introduced Rural Watch and had taken steps in a number of other areas, especially pay. An industrial affairs expert was looking into remuneration and was reporting to Mr Lester on December 14. Speaking directly to the police at the meeting, he said "I am well aware of your conditions". He also said the whole force needed a ."shake-up" ... he had found manual typewriters were still being purchased and he had banned them. In future, only electric typewriters or word processors would be bought. Other areas were being looked into including cases where police were buying their own batteries for equipment. He told police he wanted clerical staff to handle administrative work but, at the same time, he wanted to see police being released from the office to do police work. "I don't want to find clerical staff employed and police still staying in the office; that has happened in the past," he said. He was working toward prison staff being used to transfer criminals and gave an example

of two police cars and four officers not being available on the Gold Coast because they were transporting mental patients. "How can that happen?" he said. He was pleased to see the spirit of the police force was in the right place ... "I'll stick by you, I can assure you". After detailing the problems in the Police Department, Mr Lester said why the things he had done had not been done in the past "I can't really answer". He believed the problem stemmed from not having professionals in the top echelons of administration. He announced that Yeppoon would be a training station and said "election or no election, I'm not going to tell untruths". He told police his offer of enough staff for a weekend around-the-clock service was a "fair dinkum commitment". In addition, works worth 970,000 were starting as soon as a house could be found for police now accommodated at the station. FOOTNOTE: Mr Lester told Yeppoon Police he would be providing them with an electric typewriter. He could not provide them with a photocopier because they went to stations with 20 staff.


Jim Pearce ALP candidate for Broadsound The ONLY change for the Better TOURIST INDUSTRY THE State Government's assistance to the tourist industry in the wake of the pilots' dispute is limited to deferment of licence fees and payroll tax. In other words tourist operators must still pay these fees and charges at a later date. This type of assistance will not cost the Government a single cent, yet taxpayers' funds that could help tourist operators are being wasted on politically motivated advertising. These advertisements will cost at least 5250,000 once they appear in newspapers throughout the State. It is money that could be used to provide real and direct financial assistance to tourist operators being hurt by the greed of pilots. For the tourist operatorsbusiness is tough - for the National Party it's business as usual. Authorised: Richard Witkiewicz, 19 Brock Cres, Dysart

"We live in a society that, because of the collapse of the Australian economy and the western world's highest interest rates, means most families in the future will be renters. They will pay for no services while ratepayers will subsidise the renters. "We must examine the whole system so the burden of providing services is shared more evenly. "I will be advocating in the new government a total review. "Rural landholders are particularly disgruntled and rightly so. "It is time to re-assess the whole system. and protect the ratepayers who are suffering badly„ and unfairly under the present system."

A TOTAL reassessment of revenue collection for Local Authorities needs to be undertaken by the State Government to take the burden off ratepayers, Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton said this week. "I will press the government after the State election to appoint management consultants to provide a plan for Local Government re-organisation," he said. "The present situation where many shire rural ratepayers are financially supporting urban development and ratepayers are providing community services for non-landholders must'be re-considered. ""On the Capricorn Coast, for example, there is a weekend influx of Rockhampton people, other Central Queenslanders and normal tourist traffic using public facilities and contributing to council refuse collection costs. "All these services are the financial responsibilities of Coast ratepayers," Mr Hinton said.

Mr Pearce said. "All he is doing is returning Yeppoon Police . Station to what it was several years ago - a training station - until the rot set in and police numbers were allowed to drop to an all-time low. "After almost 12 months of trying to get the message to Mr Hinton, he still couldn't get it right when he (Mr Hinton) went to Mr Lester. "The elderly, single women, business people and all Coast residents - have a right to be suspicious of National Party promises made just prior to an election."

nity policing, why did they slash the police allocation in this year's budget by S16 million," he said. "The State Governinent has responded with a band-aid solution to my continuous calls for the upgrading of Yeppoon Police Station to a 24 hours station. "Friday and weekend nights fall well well short of 7 day around the clock coverage. The people of the Capricorn Coast are without police protection. "Mr 'Lester's claims that he would make Yeppoon a training station are misleading,"

Contrary to BLATANT LABOR PROPAGANDA continually attacking the Queensland National Government's Taxes and Charges FACT: QUEENSLAND HAS THE LOWEST STATE TAXES AND CHARGES IN AUSTRALIA.

THE RECORD SPEAKS FOR ITSELF; • On latest national study figures, Queenslanders have about $180 more in their pockets than the average Australian, and $364 more than New South Wales taxpayers. • According to Melbourne based Institute of Public Affairs, their latest "severity index" for state taxes are:- OLD - 77; NSW - 104; VIC - 111; WA- 107; SA - 94; TAS - 96. • According to bureau of statistics (86/87) Queenslanders paid $583in state taxes per person, the lowest by far of all the states. MEANWHILE BIG SPENDING HAWKE LABOR: • Total tax revenue has increased since LABOR came to office from $44 billion (82/83) to an estimated $82.3 billion (88/89) - pearly double. • Personal income tax is up from $20.8 billion (82/83) to an estimated $37.9 billion (88/89) - pearly double again.

New shopping centre delay DELAYS involved in setting up a second shopping centre for Yeppoon mean the major works will not proceed in time for Christmas this year as expected. Frank Beckinsale, a Victorian builder who took options over 2.5ha of land on the corner of Yeppoon-to-Rockhampton Road and T anby Road, said this week he had exercised the options and \q- now owns the shopping centre site. But unforseen delays have put back the project to well into next year. Mr Beckinsale said originally he had planned to have the shopping centre open for Christmas this year but once that deadline passed the urgency to start was removed. His shopping centre. project involves a major supermarket, 16 specialty shops, a restaurant, mini golf course and 100 market stalls open all weekend. With the urgency removed to start the shopping centre, Mr Beckinsale has decided to proceed with the market stalls so that Capricorn Coast shoppers become accustomed to buying discount goods from the site. The former Yeppoon Skateway building will house 60 individual market stalls opening from 6am to 3pm on Saturdays and Sundays. Mr Beckinsale said these market stalls would offer Coast residents the chance to open their own businesses at a price they could afford. "I have the premises and can't do anything with them just now so I decided to proceed with the

market stalls to make the huge site synonymous with discounting," he said. "My shopping centre has always been planned to be an area that would not only keep Coast people on the Coast but also attract shoppers from Rockhampton. "The stalls were an integral part of the concept ... discounted goods on stalls will keep Coast shoppers at home." Mr Beckinsale insists his stalls will not make up a flea market ... "these stalls have absolutely nothing to do with flea markets". He said he was looking for people to offer discounted clothing for adults and children, discounted shoes, discounted furniture and discounted dress and curtain fabrics. "Goods of these types are available in capital cities and help families to make ends meet," he said. "There is no reason why the right stallholders could not beat Rockhampton prices. "The goods are available, all that is needed is someone to make the effort to bring them to the Capricorn Coast." Mr Beckinsale said the Skateway building would eventually house a supermarket but for the moment, it was ideal for the stalls. He expects 60 stalls, under cover, open from early morning until late afternoon would prove a drawcard. There was parking available for more than 200 vehicles.

TUESDAY'S Great Debate between the four candidates seeking election as Member for Broadsound most likely did not change anyone's vote in the audience ... but it was entertaining in the way that watching politicians get grilled is similar to watching Christians being thrown to the Lions. The audience seemed evenly matched. There were supporters for Nationals, Liberals, Labor and Greenies. Some were vocal, some provided the undercurrent of cynicism and all applauded politely when it was the right thing to do. Capricorn Coast Chamber of Commerce and Industry president John Jackson was the man in the middle and he kept control probably as well as could be expected. In debates of this nature, political aspirants seem to ramble and questioners often seem more interested in making a point for their side than ih asking a question that will provide information for all. Liberal candidate Howard Rodda led off the seven-minute introductions saving he was concerned for the future of small business on the Capricorn Coast which was swimming against the tide of business failures around the nation. Bankruptcies were being brought about by Labor's federal policies on interest rates. Mr Rodda said he had been involved in Coast affairs since long before the start of the Tanby Road industrial estate when he had been part of the push to get the Department of Industrial development to start the project. It was now a "respectable" area and may have been too successful because since campaigning, he had met a man who wanted to start a business but found no land available. The man's business could not be sited at the estate because so many blocks had been earmarked. Mr Rodda, from his previous ownership of Hacienda Units and his executive positions on the CCTO, said tourism was the way ahead for the Coast. But the National Party government had not given enough assistance to Coast tourism. He said the CCTO had received no help with its Information Centre and had, through the generosity of Coast businesses and residents, made its own arrangement to pay off the centre. The CCTO had dealt with two State Tourism Ministers and the then Premier and had not been offered any assistance. He said the QTTC should be disbanded and reorganised with a new chairman who had no tourism interests and the present 16 regions in Queensland should be redefined. "Preference should be given to organisations willing to help themselves," he said. But he was not advocating handouts which came from taxpayers. Mr Rodda said he was not making big promises ... "I may not get elected but I can go to bed at night and sleep easily". Independent candidate Pat O'Brien, the man with the "geen" tag, could have won the debate with his opening remark that he did not intend to speak for seven minutes, he preferred questions. He spoke as a candidate who was also a small businessman on the Coast and he said he was interested in hearing what the parties' candidates were offering as solutions to the problems they had created. He knew of businesses for sale worth S60,000 on which owners would be lucky to realise $20,000 because few people wanted to invest in small businesses. He said governments had to come up with ways to allow small businesses to increase profits. He posed the question: "Is it possible our government has been taken over by Mining, Industry and Big Land owners?" Mining was being favoured with freight concessions; multi-national businesses were offered free land and cheap power ("I believe theypay one-eighth of what we pay. That would mean not 51600 for me but just S200".) and property owners were given drought relief and subsidies. "If they can get them, why can't we?" he said. He asked the audience to "think about it". Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton said three years ago, when he came from Biloela, he found a disillusioned area full of division. "There was the belief that nothing can happen here," he said. "I was determined to turn the place around." He had three priorities: the first, and most important, was servicing the needs of constituents; then there was the need to create the infrastructure so the area could grow and prosper; the third was to play a role in State matters to help Queensland grow.

Howard RODDA

Liberal for


He had treated all constituents equally and had given help when-ever asked. The infrastructure had been provided; roads, the harbour marina which would become "the jewel of the Queensland Coast", schools and the TAFE to train the young people. There was a need to provide the enthusiasm to make the area one in which people would want to invest. His role in State matters was to keep Queensland the State with the lowest taxes. This was borne out by 1700 people a month "votingwith their feet" and moving to Queensland from Labor States. He asked for three more years to continue his work for Broadsound. ALP candidate Jim Pearce said the Capricorn Coast's future could not be viewed in isolation from the rest of Australia. The ALP had a regional economic development plan for the Fitzroy region that would benefit the Capricorn Coast. He said "some might try to take issue" with him for being a miner and a trade unionist "but I won't apologise". He also wanted to make it clear that the ALP rejected any suggestion that "profit is a dirty word". (When a questioner later twisted ask why he was against profit, Mr Pearce re-read his statement and suggested to all business people they should make as much profit as they could because the profit provided employment). His party would offer support to all business people ... "not just the high-fliers but the partnerships and sole traders". There would be a Small Business Support Centre set up in Yeppoon -which would offer advice, education and training programmes. Also, "the Goss Labor Government would not close down the TAFE in Yeppoon". Regarding tourism, Mr Pearce was aware of the CI'DO-CCTO fights and, in government, the ALP would look at the regional body and the Queensland Tourist and Travel Corporation (QTTC) which has, he said, failed to provide leadership and will undergo a long overdue shake-up. He applauded the CCTO's efforts in building the Information Centre and reminded the audience his party had offered to fund it. On foreign investment and tourism, Mr Pearce would put Queensland first and he was concerned at the trend of foreign tourists travelling on foreign airlines, staying at foreign resorts within Australia and paying foreign travel agents for their holidays. He wanted to make it clear he was "not antiIwasaki. Mr Pearce offered "full-time, active representation in your interests". With the addresses over, the "Romans" took the floor and set about turning the candidates into lion fodder.

`Twenty-sixers Club' (people born on January 26) for special participation on Australia Day. People eligible to join are those born on Australia Day. "Would anyone who qualifies for the club please contact council so they be included in the celebrations."

An attached sheet has all the information needed to nominate people for the awards, all you have to do is fill in the spaces. Every year Livingstone Shire Council presents Australia Day awards to residents who have worked for the community without reward. It is the time for people who work, without pay or public praise, to receive recognition from the community. Council, in conjunction with the Australia Day Council, will present the awards on Australia Day, 1990. There are two citizen awards - citizen and junior citizen - and three sports medallions over 18 years, under 18 years and coach, official or administrator.

The citizen award is for a person 25 years or older on January• 26, 1990; junior citizen for a person under 25 years on January 26, 1990. A sports medallion may be awarded to a participant of 18 years of age or over; under 18 years; or a person of any age who has made a ' significant contribution to any recognised port as a coach, official or administrator. Council has formed a committee, chaired by Emu Park State Primary School principal Dennis Wex, to select award recipients and organise the Australia Day function. Other committee members are Meg Moore of Marlborough, Laurie Hill from The Caves, Bruce Barnett and Frank Mortensen of Yeppoon, Crs Dorey, John Dowie and Maurie Webb and shire accountant Denis Murphy. "If anyone needs help with information about the awards they may contact any member of the committee," Cr Dorey said. "Suzy Watson from the Mirror has also offered to help anyone with information."

Save your paper WHITE paper is going the way of white bread, white sugar and white rice, it is unhealthy. The bleaching of paper pulp with chlorine leads to the formation of dioxins, which are some of the most deadly toxins known. The alternative that is now available is 100 percent recycled paper that has been neither de-inked nor bleached. This is the most environmentally friendly method of making paper. Support in the market place, however, is needed to ensure the future production of this paper, so I would urge your readers to buy recycled, unbleached paper for as many applications as possible.

Daylight Saving Blues Daylight saving has only just started, And already I have found out, What little I'm likely to gain on the swing, I'll lose on the roundabout. Having used the new daylight provided Having worked all day in the sun, I'm no further ahead than I was last week, There arc still lots of jobs to be done.

$10,000 to disabled ramp at pool THE disabled persons ramp in the Don Ireland Swimming Pool complex was funded by the State Government. At the complex's opening on Sunday, Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton presented the committee with a 510,000 cheque. "I was distressed that I had been unable to provide State Government funds to assist the

$100,000 renovations nearing completion at the Strand Hotel RENOVATIONS costing more than S100,000 end this week at the Strand Hotel returning a "run-down" hotel to its former glory. Licensee-manager Peter Green said "rundown" was the only term that could apply to the hotel he took over eight months ago. At that time he had been sent to Yeppoon for one year and, before leaving Brisbane, he made sure it would only be one year. Eight months later, with the work nearing completion, the view of the beach from the front of the hotel had made him decide to ask for an extension at the Strand. "The place gets to you," he said. Renovations started with the exterior paint job and continued throughout the building and into the accommodation wing. The biggest change was the creation of the Tide's Inn Restaurant in an area that had been a store room. This had not been expanded into the old Treasure Trove shop, taking seating from 40 to between 70 and 80. The public bar was turned into the Sportman's Bar and between the two a T-shirt and souvenir shops replaced the former bottle shop. The beergarden had been renovated and renamed Tide's Out and seating had been doubled to 150 to cater for live entertainment on Sundays and char grills. The Dolphin Function room upstairs had been remodelled and air-conditioned and was attracting business.

Gold and bronze to college chefs TWO apprentice chefs working at St Brendan's College under the Capricorn Group Training scheme won gold and bronze at the Capricorn chef-of-the-year. First year apprentice Scott Herbert won gold in his section and second year Jason Birse brought home bronze. The competition, for the Capricorn region, was held at the Rockhampton College of TAFE on the weekend. "The menu was set and each apprentice competed in their year group," St Brendan's chef-in-charge John Fitchen said. "They competed against 25 other apprentices and we are pleased with their success. "It is the first time I've had a apprentices who have won special places."

Marlborough or Emu Park pool because of the difficulties of precedent and the enormous cost to the State Government if it funded community pools, which are normally a local government responsibility," Mr Hinton said. "The grant for the disabled persons ramp was a one-off and was funded within Family Services guidelines."

The 15 family units in the motel had been refitted with new curtains and bedspreads and, despite airline disputes, only one room was available on Tuesday night. Work was still continuing on the Tropicana Lounge facing the beach which opens on Tuesday, November 14, with the Electric Blue Girls, an International Dance Review. Mr Green said the renovations were part of cleaning up the hotel's image. The work had paid off in increased trade. , The Austotel-owned Strand had employed eight staff eight months ago and now had 22 permanent casuals with three more soon to be engaged.

SINCE becoming Member for Broadsound I have placed high priority on the provision of pensioner accommodation on the Capricorn Coast. Many of our Senior Citizens do not enjoy the standard of living that they are entitled to after a lifetime of work within our society. I am proud of my achievements in the construction of eight pensioner units at Bill Shuttlewood Lodge and a further 8 units at Ron Kershaw Lodge which will be officially opened on November 23. A further 12 units will be constructed at a site in Rockhampton Road in January and land is being provided in Hutton Street for yet more units. I am also seeking a site in Emu Park. I gratefully acknowledge the advice received from the Yeppoon and Emu Park branches of the Pensioners league in regard to pensioner requirements and Senior Citizens can be assured this first class, low rental accommodation will continue to be constructed- a commitment honoured - a Broadsound achievement.

14 - Capricorn Coast Mirror- 'November 10: - November 16, 1989

For this one night in November, the environment was king... • CONTINUED FROM PAGE 6 Mr Pearce said police, ambulance and fire brigades were all starved of funds under the present government. Labor would ensure the people of Queensland were protected in all three areas. Mr Rodda said the last thing Yeppoon needed was a fire of the type depicted in the film, the Towering Inferno, especially if the fire brigade did not have the equipment to fight such a fire in the town's highrise building and the two boarding schools. Mr Hinton said there had been a "hullaballoo" about two years ago over removing three fire officers from Yeppoon and leaving only one in charge of auxiliaries. He had brought then Administrative Services Minister Don Neal together with topranking fire officials and public servants, to a meeting at the Coast and the resulting meeting with Coast residents had kept the four officers in Yeppoon. The result was that Yeppoon, on the basis of population, was one of the best manned in the State. There could not be additional services without higher taxes. (There was a point of order from the floor saying that Mr Hinton had in fact been in favoUr of reducing staffing at Yeppoon Fire Station and it was 13 members of the public who swung the vote in favour of keeping the fire officers. Mr Hinton clashed with the questioner saying he had "at first" supported the removal of officers but he had listened to public opinion and reversed hi# stand). Mr O'Brien, with his answer to this question, started a swing of opinion to his side with humour. He said services in Queensland were slashed to the bone. He (Mr O'Brien) was the first to say Denis Hinton had done a lot in three years but "only because Broadsound is a marginal seat". "Vote me into office and if it stays a mar-

ginal seat we'll get the funds." Naturally, in a seat where there's a "green" independent standing, there were questions on the environment. Basically, all four sounded like "green" candidates. Every development was going to be looked at "in the light of how it would affect the environment" ... for this one night, the environment was king. Foreign investment was another topic and all candidates effectively talked of controls and committees and looking into it". On the issue of a State bank to assist small business, Mr O'Brien said it seemed to be a good idea and it needed to be looked at; Mr Hinton was opposed. It would be robbing Peter to pay Paul because of subsidies; Mr Rodda was opposed. He felt all borrowers should pay market rates; Mr Pearce said would be looking at forming a State Bank as soon as it took office. It would see that Queenslanders got a fair go. It would not be a QIDC. There would be an independent board. All four were asked for their "personal" opinion of daylight saving. All four hedged. Each wound up saying it was a matter that should be put to the people in some way or other. Sand mining was an issue that would not go away. Mr Hinton supported it only if environmental impact statements supported it; Mr O'Brien totally opposed sand mining in Corio Bay; Mr Rodda said he did not know enough about the topic to comment and Mr Pearce said under Labor, there would be no sand mining of Byfield National Park. One questioner persisted with an inquiry of Mr Hinton as to why he had not supported Labor's attempts to introduce a Foreign Land Register since 1979. Mr Hinton replied the National Party had introduced the only register that existed in Australia. He said he was not aware of ALP policy in 1979.

The same questioner asked why Mr Hinton had not supported the Savage Report recommendations for help to Small Business. Mr Hinton replied he had not been in parliament at the time. -The final question asked of each candidate was what was their pet project they wouldwork on for the Coast should they be elected. Mr Pearce said he would like to set up communications between everyone in the electorate ... "business, council, schools; it's these people who know what the problems are". He would seek guidance from these people in identifying what had been wrong for so long. Another pet project, one which he had "copped flak" over, was the northern road link for the Coast. The lack of a road link to the north was one reason why the Coast was suffering because tourists did not want to take a scenic route that covered 100km and brought them back to where they started. He said it would cost a lot of money. Mr Rodda said he found politics something new and that there was a great lack of knowledge of the problems in the community. He would have an advisory committee drawn from various organisations. He said he was not fully aware of the miners' problems where Mr Pearce came from (Dysart), he knew tourism, but was new to conservation. He said there was a need for Member of Parliament to get the best information. Mr Hinton had two pet projects; the realisation of the new TAFE college on the site that had been bought at the entrance to Yeppoon; and the extension of the four-lane highway from Yeppoon to Rockhampton. The Coast needed training facilities for its young people so they could help the area grow. Mr O'Brien said he had issued a statement on the need for help for small business which was one of his pet projects. The most important "pet" would be helping the unemployed youth of the Coast. He said

LO WOK Will! IlleSe people ... "they need a professional youth worker. W, have no youth shelter; nothing." In their three-minute summing up, Mr Peace said he was not a big-timer, not a knowall ... "I'm and achiever, a quiet achiever. I like to get the job done". Mr Rodda said there were three big evils in Australia ... "Big government, big unions and big business':. He defined big business as multi-nationals who scoured the world for cheap pineapples, canned them overseas, brought them to Australia and put them on supermarket shelves while our growers had to pay Australian wage rates. He closed by saving he felt there were hard times ahead. Mr Hinton reiterated his opening statement that he had provided the Coast with the infrastructure it needed to grow. He was proud that he had been involved in getting the Coast going. He called for support for another three years. Mr O'Brien said the most important matter for the Coast was diversity. It had already been provided in some respects by tourism operators setting up accommodation ranging from camping sites in caravan parks to resorts. As a result, the Coast had not been knocked about by the airlines dispute. The Coast had to maintain its diversity; "not like the butcher who sells milk or the mechanic who sells floppy disks" but by looking at- the Cattledrome project; by asking why the Coal' didn't have a pineapple cannery. "We have to expand our base and we have to do it ourselves because these guys (the party candidates) can't help us; they are in enough trouble." He said there were four candidates on December 2 (now 5) but really only two ... "It's them, or us." The meeting closed with applause for all candidates.

PRIVATE swimming pools can be a health risk with the spread of various diseases so Livingstone Shire Council's health department will check pools during the summer season. Officers will give advice to pool owners and check chlorine levels. "Swimming pool water is hygienicwhen a free chlorine reading of not less than 0.3 parts per million with a pH range of 7.2 to 7.8 being maintained," Health Inspector John Harmsworth- said. "A private swimming pool is required to be fenced in such a manner as to stop the access of small children. The minimum standard is set by council's by-laws, available from our department. "If any pool owner needs advice on pool or fence construction or water treatment, our staff would be pleased to help."

Man has bath needs sponsor for charity day

Bowls social and barbecue STARTING at 6.30pm on Saturday, November 18, Yeppoon Bowls Club will hold a barbecue to be followed by a social evening for women and men. "Roll up and make it a beaut Christmas party," publicity officer Ivy McNamara said. "A small donation will be charged." Ladies presentation of trophies day is on Tuesday, November 28. Morning tea will be served at 11.30am. If the green is open bowls start at noon, if not other arrangements will be made. "President Marj would like members to take along either a tart or a cake and other goodies will be provided by the club and committee. "All items for our Christmas hamper from a members are a must to make it a success. President Marj would appreciate it as soon as possible." • The ladies have changed the venue for the Christmas luncheon to the sailing club. It is on Wednesday, December 6 at noon. "The charge is $12 per person and there is a sheet in the clubhouse (ladies room) for names of those attending," she said. "All money to be paid before presentation day, November 28.

YEPPOON resident Allan Bailey is looking for sponsors or assistance to fund a bath-tub race for charity. Mr Bailey is Yeppoon Hospital Auxiliary vice president and has accepted a challenge from his brother, Eric, to race a bath-tub off Yeppoon next year. His brother took a bath-tub powered by a small outboard motor from Gladstone to Heron Island last year and raised 55000 for, charity. "We haven't decided on a course yet, but it will be off Yeppoon, in either June or July, 1990," Mr Bailey said. "The auxiliary supplies equipment for Yeppoon Hospital that is not budgeted for by the board of directors and the bath-tub race is a fun way of doing it. "These funds are usually raised through raffles and that won't be enough with the advent of the nursing home. We urgently need an injection of a larger amount of money. "Any business or individual sponsoring the race will have their name on the bath-tub and in any promotional material used," he said. "It doesn't have to be cash, it can be goods. I'll need enough styrene flotation material to make the tub buoyant and stable and fibreglass to encase the foam and secure it to the tub." He has a new bath-tub donated by Young's Distribution Centre, Townsville, an old outboard motor from Ken Jones Marine and Charlie Richards donated the motor's gearbox and he has received a number of expressions of interest in helping. "But I need more help and certainly cash or goods." Mr Bailey can be contacted for suggestions or inquiries at home, 393232, or during the day at Ken Jones Marine, 39 4002.

Coast racehorse syndicate wins $5000 at Melbourne Cup meeting meeting which attracted 33 starters. Last year's Melbourne Cup Day meeting had four races and 15 starters. Triloox, which is trained by last season's YARC premier trainer Lyle Rowe, was ridden a confident race by Rockhampton apprentice Michael Evans. Evans, the son of many time Rockhampton premiership winner Gary Evans, rates the win, his 22nd, as his biggest thrill so far in racing. Triloox won like a 5-4 on favourite should, by four lengths, easing down from the Clive Large-trained El Jada and second favourite Confident Lover. Premiership leader Peter Wheeler, who is apprenticed to Bushley trainer Wayne Cowie, combined with his master to score the first leg of a personal double on first starter British Game in the Mudcrab Maiden Handicap, (1200m). When Wheeler won the next race, the Seafood and Eat It Country Stakes (1440m) on Argent Nuage, it gave him successive doubles at Yeppoon and sixwins from as many rides this season. However his winning streak was not allowed to continue in the next race when his mount, Champagne Tess, put on a rodeo act and threw him twice ... once in the saddling enclosure and then just as the horse moved onto the track. In the absence of the withdrawn Champagne Tess the race, the Full Plate Handicap (1000m), was won by the Tanzada three-yearold Tanspot which Bouldercombe trainer Don Forsyth thought might be a bit big as the dual Rockhampton winner was returning after being nearly three months off the racing scene. Husband-and-wife team Terry and Cathy Chinner combined to continue Instant Reaction's domination of the 400m sprints at Yeppoon when the five-year-old Easy Azure horse scored by a neck in a thrilling finish to maintain a clean sweep of this event since sprint races resumed three meetings ago.

FOUR Coast racehorse owners cracked a big win on Melbourne Cup Day at Yeppoon Raceswhen theirjointly-owned horse, Triloox, won the Ray Morgan Memorial Two-YearOld Stakes. The race, named in honour of ex-Dulux and Earle's Paints representative Ray Morgan, who died earlier this year. carried prizemoney of S7100. Triloox owners Ray Armstrong, Greg Simpson, Debbie Lodwick and the estate of Brian Gilligan picked up S5000 plus a S100 trophy. This is third only to the Silver Bootee Stakes and the Toast-of-the-Coast events held each year at Yeppoon. The prizemoney was made possible by the wide support given by Dulux, Earles Paints and panel beaters and painters throughout Central Queensland who had come in contact over the years with Mr Morgan. His widow, Dot Morgan, attended the meeting and presentation but was unable to make a speech. John Suthers, speaking on her behalf, said the memorial race had been made possible by "the high esteem Ray had with both hiS social and business friends". Triloox is a 2-y-o sprinter who gained his name by a method only the Coast could choose; the syndicate had tried other horses which had all failed so they came up with the idea of buying a horse for his looks ... hence Triloox. Close to 500 people attended the five-race

Holiday plans for youngsters COAST resident Cheryl Scott has organised school holiday activities for six to 14 year-olds ... if enough are interested. She has arranged for the YWCA in Rockhampton to set up special activities over four weeks: December 18 to 22; January 8 to 12; January 15 to 19 and January 22 to 26. "It is difficult if you are a working mother to organise things for your children," Mrs Scott said. "I thought it would be different for Coast children to have a week in Rockhampton, so I approached the YWCA for help. "The children will be supervised by YWCA adults, not teenagers and the cost is all inclusive," she said. "They will go skating, visit the waterslide, have a barbecue lunch, visit the botanic gardens, go swimming, have indoor activities and a break-up party at the end of each week." Mrs Scott said the cost was S37 and included admission to wherever the children visited. "The cost also includes the bus fare to and'---1 from Rockhampton each day. All they have to take is a packed lunch. "It is non-profit, but I must have at least 50 children who want to go, otherwise I couldn't afford the bus." Phone Mrs Scott, 39 3143, if you are interested in your children having a week in Rockhampton during the school holidays.

Tke tit& ot the !Ovum


JEFF Ingle made history on the weekend when he scored Capricorn Coast Cricket Club's first century in the second grade competition in the innings played against Easts at Yeppoon. The club has had three centuries since it started in 1985 ... all in third grade. One century was scored by Jeff Ingle in the 1985/86 grand final and that was also against Easts. Coast lost the toss and was sent into bat. The side was in trouble early in the game with three wickets down for 14 runs. The wheel of fortune turned with a good partnership of 42 between Jason Dawes and Jeff Ingle, followed by a fifth wicket partnership of 52 between Keith Semmler and Jeff Ingle. Another good partnership of 61 for the sevtnth wicket followed by a seventh wicket partnership of 89, saw Coast on top and at the end of the day was nine wickets for 270 with Jeff Ingle unbeaten on 135. Another highlight was the quick-fire innings of 56 by club newcomer Gary Muller. It included a big six that resulted in Pa lost ball. Other notable scores: Brad West 20; Keith Semmler 17 and 11 by Jason Dawes. The match continues on Saturday (tomorrow) at Yeppoon Showground from 1pm. The third grade side played its first game on the new Yeppoon wicket on Sunday ... but with less luck. After being sent into bat by All Blacks, Coast was dismissed for 74. As the top-order crumbled, it was youngster Geoff Huxtable who showed how it should be done when he top-scored with 14. Paul Marsh scored 12. All Blacks easily made up the deficit and at stumps was two for 113 and took out first innings points. Bowlers: Steve Christie took 0/22 from 12 overs; Tony Ellison 1/22 from nine; Mick Barsby 1/18 from eight. Coast has to consolidate to avoid outright defeat when the match continues on Sunday at 1pm. In the previous second-grade match, Coast won first innings points against Norths. Coast won the toss and elected to bat and declared at five for 205. Steve Pidcock top-scored with 81, Dale Wetzler made 23, Jeff Ingle was not out on 37, Keith Semmler was not out on 18 and Brad West made 19. Norths, fielding a short team, was dismissed for 52 and was forced to follow-on. Wayne Kitchener took 4/38 from 13 overs and Ken Ogilvie took 4/13 from 13 overs. Norths, in the second innings, managed to avoid outright defeat by two wickets. The side made 89 with the loss of six wickets. Ken Ogilvie took 2/23 from 10 overs, Wayne Kitchener took 1/26 from seven and Ian Anderson took 3/26 from 11.

INDEPENDENT Broadsound candidate Pat O'Brien won some friends by injecting humour into an otherwise fairly staid night at Bayview tower on Tuesday night when the candidates met the Capricorn Coast Chamber of Commerce and Industry. He was asked his opinion on setting up a State Bank and started his answer by saying: "I'm not an economist ... then again, neither is Paul Keating"!!! ••• ALL four candidates were asked their personal opinion of daylight saving. One word would have been enough for an answer: Great, or lousy. Instead, all four went on about it being OK for the Coast but the man on the land could have problems and perhaps in the fullness of time, after all matters have been looked at, and a committee had reported and so on. Surely that was an easy question. OK, it was loaded, but surely someone expecting to represent the rest of us in State Parliament could say "I'm for it," or "I'm agin it"! Really, would an answer like that lose votes? ... orwould it win votes by showing you were someone prepared to take a stand? If we're going to have a State full of MLAs who want to rush back to us every time something dicky is proposed we may as well do away with parliament and all meet around a pot-bellied stove once a month and sort out the problems! ••• DENIS Hinton got a laugh on the daylight saving issue by saying he was woken at 5.45am on the first day of new time by a Marlborough grazier who said his kids were now up for school so he may as well be too! Maybe the grazier should have stood!!! ••• BY the way, no-one asked what would have seemed a fairly obvious question ... where are all the preferences going? Will Pat O'Brien stand firm and give no direction or will he give a nudge and a wink to one side? Will Howard Rodda show the Liberals mean business and direct their preferences away from the Nationals to show their independence? Will Pearce stand up to the greenies and show Labor can't be blackmailed and direct preferences, not to the "wishy-washy Libs" but to the Nationals? Tune in next week ... surely one of the candidates will put us all out of our misery on this exciting question! ■• ■ AND now for something completely different ... who do you ring when you have a snake in your home? A reader phoned this week to say she'd had a snake in her home and didn't know what to do about it. She phoned a bloke in Rockhampton to help and he arrived an hour later. By then, of course, the snake had snuk. So, who do you ring. Let us know at the Mirror (39 4244) because we're interested. too! ••• BY the way, if you have a wild gecko rampaging around your home phone Suzy. Rhodeswill vouch for her. He had one in the darkroom last week and would not enter the black hole until this vicious creature had been removed. Suzy, to get the pictures developed, stormed up the stairs and quietly removed the gecko to another place. Have vou ever seen 19 stone of quivering blubber? It's not a pretty sight!!! `
