Council sacks 63-year-old man Outdoor worker pi goes just 2 years from retirement A 63-YEAR-OLD Livingstone Shire Council outdoor worker, just two years from retire, nent, was sacked last month when he appar\—ently refused to dig a hole with a crowbar. The Yeppoon man, who had worked for council for the past 23 years, was sacked on the spot. This week his wife wrote a letter to the,edit or of the Capricorn Coast Mirror detailing what had happened. When contacted, she said she had not told her husband of her letter because "he's a bit shy of publicity". The Mirror checked the facts contained in the letter, which was signed. Because the man is obviously "shy" his name has not been used in this article. - His wife, in her letter, said: "Some weeks ago my husband was sacked from the Livingstone Shire Council because he told the foreman his hand was too sore to do the job assigned (using a pick and shovel in hard ground). He explained that he'd just had four days off because of the same complaint and that the last few day's work had made it flare up again but that didn't make any difference so they sacked him on the spot after twenty three-and-a-half years on the council workforce. Apparently the matter was discussed at the last council meeting and even though (her huSband's) doctor had written a letter to verify his claims, the decision was upheld. The law was on the council's side but surely sometimes a man's record as a good worker (there are many examples of this in the area such as fencing, stone pitching etc) could count for something. He has been working since he was 14 and has never been sacked, never been out of work and never collected unemployment (benefits) until now. In all his years at the council he has never been one to avoid hard work and never taken a "sickie" unless it was very necessary. He only had two years to go until he retired and even though he didn't have a higher education or a trade he has managed to raise his family without the aid of government handouts. However he does have a memento of his years in the council -- a piece of paper which states that his employment was terminated for "unsatisfactory work performance". If that means what it appears to mean, I wonder why it took them twenty three-and-ahalf years to find out? About the time this happened, an article appeared in the Mirror about the number of "sickies" being taken by Livingstone Council employees. Maybe if (my husband) had taken a few more he'd still be employed! • CONTINUED ON PAGE 2

He has unenaea going to tne doctor again the next day." Livingstone shire clerk Jim Brown was contacted about the letter and confirmed the man had been sacked. He said the man had spoken to him after the dismissal and the man's doctor had written a letter stating the man had been suffering from an injured hand. Mr Brown said the matter had been discussed at the October council meeting when council had called for a report on the matter. Shire engineer Pat Murphy prepared the report which was presented to the November meeting, last week. Council dealt with the matter in committee (behind closed doors). Mr Brown, who was not at the council office when contacted, was unsure as to whether the doctor's letterwas tabled for the councillors. The doctor who treated-the man wrote the following letter to Livingstone Shire Council, dated October 12, 1989: "This letter has been written at the request of (the man's name). He came to see me on September 18, 1989, complaining of pain in his right wrist which he had sustained in a work accident about two weeks previously and because it was not resolving decided to seek attention. He was found to be very tender over the first metacarpal phalangeal joint, and to exclude any bone injuries an x-ray was done. This demonstrated osteoarthritic degeneration at the first metacarpal phalangeal joint. On September 19 he was treated with localised injections. At the initial consultation he was asked to take leave, being medically unfit, and because it was work-related this may have been compensatable. However, he preferred to take sick leave and after four days returned to work, despite still having the handicap not completely resolved. In summary, he had an exacerbation of osteoarthritis of the first metacarpal phalangeal joint, which was aggravated by work, but for which he refused Workers' Compensation entitlements. He returned to work prematurely. The doctor's name and signature followed. The doctor received the following reply from Livingstone shire clerk Jim Brown, dated No-

vember 3: After acknowledging receipt of the doctor's letter, Mr Brown said: "Thank you for your information regarding (the man's) medical condition. "Unfortunately, (the man) was dismissed• from the employ of council for reasons which were considered to be serious and which could not be overlooked, in spite of any physical disability at the time. "His decision to take sick leave rather than time off on compensation may, with hindsight,' have been unwise. "It is disappointing that this situation did occur after the number of years of service of this former employee. "Should you consider that there may be a problem with employees not wishing to accept Workers' Compensation entitlements, the shire engineer (Pat Murphy) Would be interested in any information or have discussions with you in that regard." The man's superannuation cheque apparently is either on its way to him or in his hands. When his wife was asked why he hadn't contacted his union, she said her husband "wasn't like that". "He didn't want to bring in the union because if the men went on strike for him it would cause them hardship," she said. "People only have to miss a couple of day'.5 pay to make it hard for their families." She said her husband had had four .days off, went to work on the Monday and found his hand hurt, worked on Tuesday when his hand hurt more, went to work on the Wednesday thinking it was time he went back to the doctor ... and was home before lunch, sacked! "It seems unreal to me after all these years," the man's wife said.

INDEPENDENT DIRECTS SECOND INDEPENDENT Broadsound candidate Pat O'Brien has directed his second preferences to ALP candidate Jim Pearce. Labor's, and Mr Pearce's, answers to a log of claims served on all Broadsound candidates, plus a "green package" from Labor's shadow environment minister Pat Comben, were enough to carry the day for the ALP. The preferences agreement was worked out

late Wednesday afternoon at a meeting between Labor Yeppoon branch president David Timbs, secretary Ross Dickson, candidate Jim Pearce and Mr O'Brien. As a result, Mr O'Brien's how-to-vote card will direct the second preference to Labor, the third to Liberal, the fourth to Citizens' Electoral Council and fifth to the National Party. In a Press release, Mr O'Brien said the rec-

ommendation was based solely on the responses from political parties and individual candidates' to a State-wide and a Broadsound log of claims. Privately, after the meeting on Wednesday night, Mr O'Brien said he fully supported giving the preferences to the ALP but he wanted to make it "quite clear" that these preferences were only "qualified support". "The Labor Party gave us a package of envi-

ronmental commitments for the Broadsound electorate. These commitments, together with the answers to the log of claims, won the day. "But our support is only for the term of the next government.

Hinton: disappointed at green preference result `Greens' give O'Brien forfeits preferences to all claims to be Labor's Pearce independent

MEMBER for Broadsound Denis Hinton was "disappointed" that Independent Pat O'Brien has decided to give his preferences to the ALP's "Dysart miner" Jim Pearce. Mr Hinton learned the independent "green"1 preferences would be going to the ALP at 5pm on Wednesday. When told, Mr Hinton said Mr O'Brien had "forfeited all claims to calling himself an inde. pendent and has clearly stamped himself a second ALP front on the Capricorn Coast". Until late Wednesday afternoon, Mr Hinton had expected Mr O'Brien would issue an "open" ticket ... one where electors were asked to vote 1 for Mr O'Briend then according to their conscience for the rest. But a last-minute ALP "green package for the Coast" put paid to that idea. The moment he heard, Mr Hinton said Pat O'Brien had just "written off the conservation movement as a political force in Queensland".

"Conservative voters, who may have given Mr O'Brien a vote on environmental issues will now desert him," he said. "In one stupid move, the conservationists have lost all credibility. No-one, not even an ardent supporter, would regard their movement now as anything more than a front for the ALP." Recalling that Mr O'Brien said when he nominated for Broadsound that "the party's over" Mr Hinton said Mr O'Brien had said then the Green movement was not satisfied with "any party's platform" and only by standing would they be able to focus attention on the environment. "They started out that way and wound up party hacks!" Mr Hinton said although he was disappointed at the loss of the preferences, he would not hold this against the green movement when he was returned as Member for Broadsound. "They said themselves that I am a conservationist and frequently complimented me on the positive conservation measures I have taken since being elected," he said. "What they don't know is that I brought my own conservation philosophywith me to Broadsound and that will not desert me. "I know what the green movenment stands for because I lived by the same principles long before entering Parliament. "For the past three years I have been actively involved in conservation measures within the electorate and have achieved more for conservation than any other Member of State Parliament. "Despite the opposition by former Premier Sir Joh Bjelke-Petersen, I kept the Bayfield area for all Australians and was responsible for having had 8700ha gazetted as Byfield National Park. "I obtained approval for the gazettal of Vallis Park at the Bluff in Yeppoon; created two environmental parks at Corio Bay which were formerly Iwasaki resort leases; was responsible for gazetting of a scientific reserve

over the greater part of Mt Etna, including the preservation of the famous Bat Cleft. "I was repsonible for the gazetting of a fauna sanctuary over Pink Lily lagoons." Mr Hinton said he had been particularly active in the fishing industry where he had been responsible for the introduction of conservation measures. "On my initiative there is now a State-wide ban on the netting of narrow barred spanish mackerel with mono-filament nets," he said. "At my instigation, the Queensland Fish Management Authority is now conducting a feasibility study into regional area management of the Queensland coast and fishing industry, a measure strongly sought by the Yeppoon branch of the QCFO. "I was responsible for the convening of the Capricorn Coast Fisheries Area Advisory Committee. "This committee comprises representatives from the Yeppoon and Rockhampton branches of the QCFO, the Queensland Sport and Recreation Council, Fitzroy River Management Committee, Department of Environment and Conservation, the CIAE, charter boat operators, boating and fisheries patrol and local government, with Cr Mike Prior the chairman." He said this group met monthly and advised government on conservation matters important to both the commercial and recreational fishery for the Capricorn region. "The group is extremely effective," he said. On the western side of Broadsound, Mr Hinton said he had arranged current negotiations between Central Queensland coal mines and the State Mines Department to upgrade mine rehabilitation programmes. "At a State level, I have been responsible for the creation of a working party by the Department of the Environment to study deposit legislation for beverage containers," he said. "As a result, local authorities in South-East Queensland are being convened to determine an effective recycling programme as a pilot study for the State." He said the "real issue" was that as a member of the government, "and as a conservationist, I have been effective in achieving positive results for conservation and was doing so before Pat O'Brien and the Green political movement was ever heard of in this electorate". "I believe thinking conservationists will vote for deeds and not words. I fully expect to get the Green preferences and will await the distribution with great interest," he said.

• CONTINUED FROM PAGE 3 bargain 'they won't get the preferences next time." Mr O'Brien said Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton missed out on the preferences because of his party's response to the log of claims. "Mr Hinton has demonstrated his concern for the environment a number of times but, in the final analysis, he was let down by his party's policies," Mr O'Brien said. The political side of the "green" movement tabulated the results of the log of claims which encompassed 102 questions. State-wide, the Australian Democrats topscored with 101 answers which tallied with the sought-after response from the "Greens". Labor scored 95, the Liberals 55 and the Nationals ... 6. The tabulations continued with "qualified support", "undecided" and "opposed". The Nationals top-scored under "qualified support" and also "undecided". Mr O'Brien said he hoped preferences would not need to be distributed ... "in this election, • concern for the environment should put me past the post on the first count".

Pearce welcomes O'Brien's move on preferences ALP Broadsound candidate Jim Pearce has welcomed the decision to direct preferences to Labor. In a Press release issued Wednesday night, Mr Pearce said: "The Green Independents have made a sound decision. "They are standing to achieve sensible environmental policies in Queensland. "Pat O'Brien and his team have considered the alternatives and, on balance, obviously believe Labor has the best policies and the best chance of gaining a clear, fresh approach to government in our State."



Family-based tourism is important for the Capricorn Coast. INDUSTRIES that are `environmentally friendly' & compatible with our existing lifestyles should be encouraged. Pat o'Brien supports magnesite development on degraded land at Kunwarrarra subject to strict environmental & rehabilitation guideslines, & a tannery development, subject to U.S. Environmental Protection Agency guidelines.

SMALL BUSINESS Broadsound's economic future lies with encouragement of small labour-intensive businesses & design-based industries. Appropriate Value-added' enterprises must be actively encouraged to maximise utilisation of Broadsound's resources. There should be a thorough review of subsidies to industries, infrastructure costs & existing govt/industrypractices. Proper incentives should be provided for small businesses to increase employment opportunities.

PAT O'BRIEN Will endeavour to create opportunities for the establishment of new business by supporting measures such as: Specialist tourism; theme towns; recycling legislation; environmental clean-ups; retirement centres; education industry; niche agriculture & food processing; alternative energy centre; National Art & Craft Centre.

INDEPENDENT for Broadsound Pat O'Brien, the Independent, Supports

• A sustainable, brain-driven economy based on design, quality and innovation. • Investment in Broadsound, but on Broadsound's terms. As a group, the Independents will institute backbone into these dealings - and put an end to secret deals. • The Independents will move to get rid of the over-regulation which trammels small business at State and Local Government level. • Rural communities should lead the fight for sustainable agricultural and grazing practices and we support the National Farmers' Federation initiated land-care programme. • Will encourage land care, with rate rebates for natural land areas to be financed by Local and State governments, & greater taxation incentives at Federal level. Encourage greater co-operation between rural groups and conservation bodies to work on mutual goals. • The Independents recognise the need for timber and stable timber industry jobs.They would aim to phase out the $350 million (in Queensland) per annum timber imports by encouraging plantation timbers. • Policies include an immediate ban on the import of rainforest timbers and the immediate implementation of a programme to enlarge planation production, in particular, species other than pine.

Labor's promise to fund joint study of Coast's basic services A LABOR government will fund a joint State-local government study of basic services on the Capricorn Coast. "Deputy opposition leader Tom Burns visited the Capricorn Coast this week. and said there was a need to develop a blueprint for development so basic community services could be provided and planned on an efficient and coordinated basis," ALP Broadsound candidate Jim Pearce said. "It is vital the Capricorn Coast's problems be addressed in a uniform and ordered approach. "The proposed terms of reference allow for a full and in depth investigation of all issues in Livingstone Shire. "This area is growing at a rate above that for the rest of the State. It is important future infrastructure needs are properly planned and not allowed to develop in an ad hoc way," he said. "The offer to fund a consultant's study should be welcomed by Livingstone Shire Council, as should the co-ordinated approach to planning." Mr Burns said the study will not take away any of council's rights or responsibilities. "It will simply tell both levels of government what is needed to meet the demands of a growing area," Mr Burns said. "A Labor government will adopt a more cooperative approach to local government problems than has been shown by the National Party." He said it would also maintain subsidies for local government water and sewerage projects at 20 per cent and roadworks and drainage projects at least 15 per cent. "The latest figures show that between 1986

and 1988 Livingstone Shire's population has increased by 2.2 per cent each year to reach almost 16,000 residents. "The shire's growth rate of 2.2 per cent is the same as the average growth throughout the State and is well above the average growth rate of the Fitzroy region of 0.8 per cent," Mr Burns said. "This type of growth needs to be well managed and planned if the Capricorn Coast is to continue to prosper as a residential, tourist and business centre." He said the comprehensive study would start as soon as agreement was reached between the State Government and Livingstone Shire Council. "We will ensure it is conducted quickly, either by outside consultants or by experts within the Local Government Department and our proposed new Department of Regional Development. "The study team will be required to report back with a projected infrastructure plan within 12 months." Mr Burns said suggested terms of reference for the joint studrinclude: investigate and analyse the infrastructure requirements of the Capricorn Coast; prepare guidelines for the integrated development of commercial, tourist and residential facilities; establish criteria by which necessary infrastructure requirements if of the Capricorn Coast can be advanced. Such 11.) requirements would include, but not be limited to, the issues of sewerage and drainage; make recommendations for an integrated coastal plan based on the references developed by the study.

AN OPEN LETTER TO MR -HINTON Quoting from Queensland Hansard, page 902, September 28,1989:

Mr HINTON: I thank Mrs Harvey. Avery interesting point is that Mr Wright's wife is a paid researcher. They travel around together and Mr Wright receives two salaries. What an incredible deal! Together they run an organisation in central Queensland called the Central Queensland Consumers Organisation. Recently, I discovered the total membership of that noisy organisation! Mr Wright is the president, Mrs Wright is the secretary and there are no other members. h is a really ripper organisation! That is the organisation that people are expected to complain to instead of complaining to the Consumer Affairs Bureau. I have warned my constituency against taking complaints to that fictitious organisation.

• ABOVE: Liberal Small Business and Transport Shadow Minister Denver Beanland shown the Coast by Liberal candidate Howard Rodda.

Rodda: interest rates crippling, small business people on Coast LIBERAL candidate for Broadsound Howard Rodda said after speaking to Coast business people that one point came through loud and clear ... high interest rates are crippling their viability. "They question why exorbitant rates are necessary and how long will they last," Mr Rodda said. "The simple answer is because of colossal mis-management of the national economy by the Federal Labor Government. "When Bob Hawke became Prime Minister, the national debt was $23 billion. Today, after six years of improving commodity export prices and good seasons for rural producers, that debt now stands at around $103 billion and increasing at the rate of $20 billion annually," he said. "As a consequence the'Government is persisting with its failed policies to maintain and increase interest rates to attract overseas finance that, in turn, buys up our farms, businesses and tourist resorts at what to them are bargain rates. "The investor in Broadsound paying rates of

21 per cent and higher cannot compete with Japanese funds at four per cent. "Daily we hear of new bankruptcies, empty shops in main streets, vastly reduced prospects for jobs for our school-leavers and the real probability of half a million Australians losing their homes and farms. "There is no quick fix. The current rot must be stopped before any turnaround can be expected," Mr Rodda said. "A Liberal government will attack the rorts and rackets of the waterfront that penalise exporters, right back to beef producers and others of this area. "The work force prepared to revitalise work practices to some level of efficiency will be rewarded for their efforts. "Queensland ALP policies are no different to those of the Labor Governments of Victoria, Western Australia or Tasmania where they have brought bankruptcy, huge losses of their taxpayers monies from wheeling-dealing with big business and the highest unemployment rate in Australia."

Progress group backs speakers THE actions of Livingstone Shire councillor Lloyd Webber and Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton in regard to the siting of Emu Park sewerage plant were strongly supported at Emu Park Progress Association's November meeting. "The meeting of about 60 residents endorsed Cr Webber's action in moving a rescission motion at council's November meeting in relation to the proposed site adjacent to Hartley Street," Mr Hinton said. "I told the meeting I was determined there would be no rezoning of the proposed site from recreational reserve to local government reserve to facilitate the plant until all available

sites had been costed and adequately presented at a public meeting. "The State Government assisted council with an interest-free loan of $2 million to enable a viable scheme to go ahead," he said. "Emu Park is expensive to sewer because of soil types, terrain, the spread out nature of the town and the number of people on low, fixed incomes. "Council had no option but to introduce sewerage because of Water Quality Council requirements and the deteriorating health situation occurring in a growing community. "Council has agreed to provide the information before proceeding. The final decision on siting must rest with council."

Council auctioning 40 blocks of land offering differing lifestyles LIVINGSTONE Shire Council is auctioning 40 lots of land, some with sea and rural views, in Yeppoon and Emu Park in December. Seventeen lots will be auctioned in Emu Park on December 9 by The Professionals and Emu Park First National, agents in conjunction. There are eight lots in Thomas Street, five in. Redman Street and four rural parcels in the grazing area north of the airstrip. L J Hooker (N Callianiotis) will auction 23 lots in Yeppoon on December 16. There are 16 lots in a new development in Ivey Street West, four in Shaw Avenue and three in Seaview Road. Shire clerk Jim Brown said the lots offered a variety of land for people interested in living on the Coast. "The blocks on Seaview Hill have sea and

rural views, the blocks in Ivey Street West are close to town and the Emu Park blocks offer rural views and country living," Mr Brown said. Council is auctioning the land in Shaw Avenue and Seaview Road to fund roadworks on Seaview Hill. The Ivey Street West blocks will secure development conditions on the original rezoning. Emu Park's Thomas Street and rural parcels are to raise seeding funds to enable council to re-design major council land holdings between Hewitt and Hartley Streets. The sale of the Redman Street blocks will provide funds for construction of Redman Street. The remaining six lots in Shaw Avenue on Seaview Hill are earmarked for balloting under the first home owners scheme. Mr Brown said the rezoning of that land should be gazetted this week and an order-incouncil authorising council to carry out the ballot should be issued prior to Christmas. `There will be some lots available under the same scheme in Emu Park next year. "After council advertised for expressions of interest earlier this year for new home buyers scheme, there was a lot of interest shown in Emu Park. We expect to develop land there next year."

NEW RESIDENTS OBJECT TO $38 POOL CHARGE NEW Coast residents Ross and Sandra Wilson of Bungundarra have objected to Livingstone Shire Council's annual $38 pool registration fee. They complained to the Capricorn Coast Mirror moments before heading to the council chambers to lodge their objection. Mr Wilson said when he received the notification of the fee he had thought it unusual because he does not use town water. He pumps bore water for the pool. He phoned Gladstone City and Calliope Shire Councils to inquire whether they charged a registration fee and was told people installing a pool had to pay a fee for a construction permit but there were no further charges. He decided to check closer to home and phoned Rockhampton City Council. He was told Rockhampton had a registration fee in its by-laws but it was not enforced in the town area. When Mr Wilson asked if it was enforced in rural areas he was told that a pool outside the city's tower water and sewerage area was not

subject to any fee. "Yet in this little town (Yeppoon) we have to pay $38 a year," he said. "Apparently the council tests the water for that but I have my own test kit. I don't need council's advice." The Wilsons decided to retire to the Capricorn Coast after visiting here in February this year. They heard about the Coast from friends who had a second honeymoon here. That couple said how much they liked the area and the Wilsons decided they would have a look for themselves. They stayed four days in February, liked the place, and subsequently bought a home on two acres at Bungundarra. They had left the Coast and sold a home they had at Taree and another atB athurst before moving here. At the moment they are semi-retired but moved here before full retirement because they wanted to get to know people and make new friends. But their Coast lifestyle is not working out as well as they had hoped.

Mr Wilson has run into parochialism when looking for work. After telling one prospective employer in Rockhampton that he was from New South Wales, Mr Wilson was told "there are a lot of Queenslanders out of work". He asked him did that mean he would prefer to employ an unqualified Queenslander for a job when he could have someone fully qualified from NSW and was told "ye.s". The difficulty in finding work and a rumour that rates will be going up next year have combined to unsettle the Wilsons. They said they would move in January if they found out that rates were going to be increased. They like the Coast but, at this stage, with little work available, they are not committed to the area. They could easily sell up and move on to another area. Mr Wilson said he had read where shire chairman Cr John Bowen believed the Coast should be promoted as a retirement area. He feels the council has to change it attitude on matters such as pool registration fees before it can attract more people.

Betta Bonus.

Hi there, Walking and talking around the Coast certainly gives you a real insight into people's problems and concerns. It is encouraging to find small business people with a successful product or service, but so many are hurting because of high interest rates and sagging economy. They are just hanging in there, hoping things will improve before they, too, will have to close and leave as is happening now with further job restrictions of our school leavers. Our senior citizens are hurting too as they see their small incomes buying less and less necessities of life every week. Their concern is for their limited future. They should not be in this position in view of their great contribution in building this country. How can we return to some of the better values of recent years, where our savings held their value; where there was security of employment (instead of the regular bankruptcy of big employers); where there was incentive for work and reward for achievement? Where we enjoyed a rising standard of living; where we could buy a home with a sensible slice of income and not be plunged into a financial nightmare as we are today? Next weekend you will have YOUR opportunity to take the first step in that direction. Howard Authorised: Kan Shields, 17 Cassia Avenue, Yeppoon

Resort bringing Expo to Coast CAPRICORN International Resort has brought some World Expo to the Capricorn Coast. Because of the Japanese Restaurant's great success at Expo 88, the resort purchased the building from the Expo authority and rebuilt it at the resort. It is typical of a Japanese house, complete with verandah and overlooks the pool. Two thirds of the building is glass. "It has been known as the 'Pavilion', but will now be called 'Anniversary House 88'," public relations executive Jan Farquhar said. "Since the start of its new life at Capricorn International Resort, Anniversary House 881 has been used for many successful functions. The grandest was the 88th birthday celebration of Mr Y Iwasaki in June this year. "It is Japanese custom to celebrate the 88th birthday on a grand scale as it represents an important milestone in one's life," she said. "Because of the building's close association with the number 88, Capricorn International Resort decided to name it Anniversary House

ROSSLYN Bay Boat Harbour will be dredged during current dredging operations for the new marina. Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton said the present dredging operation in the new marina area is expected to extend into next year with no definite date for completion. "It is included in the programme associated with the $4.6 million government grant for the harbour development," Mr Hinton said. "Harbours and Marine surveyors are presently determined how much silting has occurred in the commercial section and just how much dredging will be required to create the desired depth if 4.2 metres at low tide. "I am assured by Harbours and Marine Department that sufficient finance will be provided to fully dredge all the harbour to the desired depth. "The dredging of the old section will immediately follow the dredging of the new marina area," he said. "I know there has been some concern about this operation ... it is totally unfounded. "The exact cost of the additional dredging cannot be assessed until the surveyors have, completed the measurement of silt that has accumulated over the last two years since it was last dredged. "The new wall will ensure the harbour will, in future, remain silt-free. The whole project is an enormous boon to existing harbour users."

ALP candidate for Broadsound Jim Pearce has been approached by a number of tourist operators incensed over the lack of government tourism promotion. "A number of local operatOrs have expressed concern to me that this region was ignored totally in a State Government "Discover Queensland" promotion in a Sunday newspaper," Mr Pearce said. "The promotion was a full colour supplement published on two different days earlier this month and distributed in the Sunday Sun. "It was well supported by the National Party State Government with a lot of "non" political government advertising. The Premier even provided the introduction to the publication. "The publication was touted as the government's way of getting tourism back on its feet and was a total State promotion," he said. "The Capricorn Tourism Development Organisation was asked to supply editorial for the publication and reams of information were forwarded to Brisbane for us. "But none of it appeared in the publication. Every town, village or tourism attraction between Bundaberg and Mackay was totally ignored," Mr Pearce said. "As one tourist operator put it to me: "It's as if the tourist industry didn't exist between Bundaberg and Mackay". "I can only assume these areas were cut out because of their predominant Labor sympathies. "No-one can doubt the tourist potential of the Capricorn Coast."

Mango madness




Capricorn Landscaping's professional approach YOU'VE finally done it! That dream is home is yours at last ... along with a patch of flourishing lantana, a scattering of wattles and a lawn of freshly-laid gravel. After many weekends, as relaxing as a spell in a labour camp, your patience and energy has worn thin. Even the dog would rather be inside watching the football. After a hard week at work, many of us can think of nothing less inspiring than weilding a shovel. Gardening may be a delight for some of us but for many it is definitely hard work. Many of us now choose to spend a large amount of leisure time in the outdoors. To ignore the possibilities of your garden is to forget to maintain and improve your investment.

Nick Callianiotis builds NICK CALLIANIOTIS, the L.J. Hooker Yeppoon franchisee, has moved into new owned premises at Shop 1, 11 James Street. After 16 years in real estate in Yeppoon, Mr Callianiotis has made only his second, and he expects, his final move. The new air-conditioned, tiled and carpeted premises show a confidence in the Capricorn Coast's future. He, with his wife Dora, now work in a modern office with six phone lines (39 3788) and a fax linking them with 450 L.J. Hooker franchisees throughout Australia. Mr Callianiotis said the L.J. Hooker network of franchisees meant anyone interested in- real estate had buyers or sellers around the nation just a phone call or fax message away. Mr Callianiotis has come a long way from his start in real estate in 1973 as a representative in his brother George's G.C. Realty. The following year he became manager and 11 years later he bought the business. At that time, Mr Callianiotis changed the name to N.C. Realty then, last year, he became the L.J. Hooker franchisee. He expanded the business and opened a branch at Emu Park staffed by three consultants, Pauline Ewart, Margaret Bleney and George Van Latham plus receptionist Katie Watson. The Yeppoon office is staffed by Nick and Dora plus consultants

saddens ALP ALP candidate for Broadsound Jim Pearce this week said he was saddened by Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton's mudslinging tactics. "I am saddened he has resorted to the mudslinging tactics of his leaders," Mr Pearce said. "The National Party has made it clear that its only campaign tactic is to make every wild allegation it can think of about Labor's policie, in areas ranging from drugs, to police powers, to taxes, to strikes. "The Nationals have nothing else to offer. "And now Mr Hinton has shown he, too, has nothing else to offer by engaging in precisely the same tactics," he said. "I resent his wild allegations contained in an article mis-named 'Denis has run a clean campaign' against unspecified 'opponents'. "If he means me and the Labor Party, he is wrong," Mr Pearce said. "Similarly, he claims I have said my electoral office will be in Dysart. This is simply untrue. "After December 2, I will establish my electoral office in the largest population centre in the electorate ... Yeppoon. "I will also live in the area with my family ... something Mr Hinton cannot claim," he said. "What I will also do is to seek a second office, on at least a part-time basis, in the western part of the electorate in order to better serve that part of the electorate. "The issue in the December 2 election overriding all others is that of honesty in government. The Nationals' and Mr Hinton's wild allegations prove they fail on this issue. "The people of Broadsound have my assurance that the Labor Party and I will not be getting into the gutter with Mr Hinton and the Nationals."

Hinton supports Corio Bay plan THE recommendations of management consultants W Carter and Associates, appointed by the Premier's Department, to provide a •management plan including legal access to two environmental parks excised from the Iwasaki Sangyo Co holding, have been supported in principle by Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton. "It-is currently proposed to name them.Corio Bay Environment Parks and to provide legal access by way of a Main Roads Department easement over the private Iwasaki Sangyo Co road leading to the parks," Mr Hinton said. "The Premier's Department will negotiate with the company and offer a financial contribution towards the road's maintenance. "It is proposed the parks remain under the National Parks director's control. Expressions of interest will be called for a private contractor to provide day-to-day service, including rubbish collection and servicing of toilets that may be built on the southern end of portion 16 (Sandy Point)." He said it was not proposed to provide permanent water as it would encourage long-term ' campers to the parks' detriment that have a fragile environment. "The Environment and Conservation Department will provide management and patrols to ensure the areas' long-term stability and the parks' improvement. "These include closing of Sandy Point to vehicular traffic; construction of chain and plank dune crossing some hundreds of metres back from Sandy Point and rationalisation and restruction of vehicular access around Sandy Point," Mr Hinton. "There should be enrichment planting of Sandy Point and broadcast seeding of dunes with endemic seeds. A track should be constructed at Sandy Point, close to the toe of the foredunes, to take vehicular access out of the mangrove areas. "I am looking for an early implementation of these concepts even before the election and an allocation of finance to enable the programme to go ahead."

THERE has been good response to Yeppoon Lions Club's medi-drop with prescription drugs being left at the town's three pharmacies. Tomorrow, Saturday, Yeppoon Police joins the Lions club in a drug awareness day at Savemore Centre from 9am to 1pm. Constable Brett Heath will be on duty with Lions to answer questions and meet the public. "We will have videos and pamphlets on how to look after prescription and over-the-counter medication," Lions president Don Knowles. "The members are delighted to help Yeppoon Police educate our community to be aware. "It's part of Lions' community service," he said. Yeppoon Police officer-in-charge Sgt lc Ken Tanzer said he was pleased the week-long exercise had been successful. "I invite Coast people to go to the drug awareness day in Savemore tomorrow. We should all be more aware of drugs and what can happen to our children." "Besides helping us with queries, Const Heath will have a marijuana plant in a pot so parents can see what it looks like," Mr Knowles said. Lions start selling tickets in their Christmas. stocking tomorrow and Christmas cakes will be on sale.

Sacred Heart's new bus route

SACRED Heart Primary School children will be delivered to the school by bus avoiding a dangerous walk along Park and John Streets. Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton said, at his request, the Transport Department had arranged for children travelling by bus to the school to be dropped off adjacent to the school in a new route designed to minimise danger to young children. "The situation in Park Street is particularly dangerous with the narrow bridge at Browns Gully," Mr Hinton said. "The State Government has allocated $75,000 to match $75,000 from Livingstone Shire Council to replace the bridge with a wide culvert crossing. "Council is allocating its funds over two financial years so work on the new crossing should start in the first half of 1990," he said. "Children from Sacred Heart School or other private schools have the same rights on school buses as State schoolchildren. "The same rules apply. Children over the age of 10 years must be at least 4.3 kilometres from the nearest State school to be eligible for school bussing. "Rockhampton transport officer Robert Born will contact individual conveyance committees to discuss details of the new route in Yeppoon to Sacred Heart School."

• ABOVE: The German-Australian Club meets at Yeppoon Town Hall for games, talking, music and German food. Members said it was easier to meet in the hall, rather than private homes.

Council told 19 dogs destroyed three sold after 56 impounded DOGS and their control were discussed at Livingstone Shire Council's November meeting. Fifty-six dogs were impounded during the paSt two months of these 13 were registered and 43 unregistered. Thirty were released to owners, three sold and 19 destroyed. Pound fees received for the two months were $1110 and $394 in registration fees. Health surveyor Denise Nolan reported all dog complaints were being responded to promptly by the dog control officer. In her report she said several problems had been raised by the public concerning dangerous dogs and action had been taken where necessary and possible. "A request for council to purchase a dog trap has been put to the health and welfare committee to capture nuisance dogs unable to be caught by any other means," her report said. "The numbers of dogs impounded are lower indicating a general awareness by the community of dog control." The report said emphasis this month had been placed on the capture of dangerous dogs and following up unregistered dogs. "Final notice and letters giving seven days to register dogs have been sent, following non compliance to these, prosecutions will be recommended to council. "A plan of action for future dog programmes is currently being devised by myself and the dog control officer to ensure public awareness of the various aspects of the dog by-law requirements." Dog control officer Terry Bell attended the health and welfare committee's October 19 meeting and demonstrated the use of a dog capture cage, borrowed from Fitzroy Shire. He recommended its use be trialled in an effort to deal with some of the more elusive dogs in the community. The report from the committee meeting said it was suggested that an Emu park resident wished to have the use of the cage in order to catch a dog that had killed many of her fowls. It also said there were several other people interested in having the use of a similar cage. The committee recommended that a trial period for a dog capture cage be endorsed subject to the applicants applying in writing. They also have to give permission for the cage to be placed on their land and for the dog control officer to enter their land to remove the cage and any dogs caught. "Any approvals to be subject to the applicant undertaking in writing, to indemnify the council against any claims from themselves or third parties which may arise in respect of the use of such capture cages," the committee said. Shire clerk Jim Brown was requested by the committee to prepare a specific proposal for consideration at the next meeting on locations and variations in wording of animals prohibited signs. Dog control officer Bell had requested clarification on the wording and placement of the signs and the level of enforcement desired. :z.

He was also asked to prepare a report on the legal and practical considerations associated with making dog registration a pre-requisite for sale or transfer of ownership. The health and welfare committee's November 7 meeting recommended that the sale or giving away of pets at the Yeppoon Charity Market be not permitted. Health surveyor Nolan told the meeting there was an anomaly in the by-laws relating to the age of dogs for registration purposes. Mr Brown said the proposed town planning scheme definition also needed improving and should be compatible with the by-law. The meeting recommended that both be amended on the basis that a dog becomes liable to be registered or counted as a domestic animal once it reaches the age.of 12 weeks. Health inspector John Harmsworth's report said summons had been served on two people concerning the dog control by-laws.

Public meet on respite care A PUBLIC meeting of respite care volunteers and interested people will be held on Tuesday, November 28 at 10am. The Capricorn Coast Blue Nursing Service respite care centre has called the meeting to form a committee to oversee and maintain clients' care. Capricorn Coast Respite Care Centre coordinator Liz Kelly said the meeting was being called at the temporary respite care centre in the Masonic Hall on Old Rockhampton Road, Yeppoon. "The committee will work with the blue nursing staff to provide the best possible care and to liaise with the community to find what the Coast's aged and disabled need from respite care," Mrs Kelly said. "Fundraising is organised through the blue nursing auxiliary, this committee is strictly for the maintenance of high quality client care." The committee will comprise people interested in aged care, volunteers who wish to help in the centre and others who don't have the time to volunteer, but want to help with a community project.

Enthusiastic audience watches Jack and Win basketballers play grand finals host farewell ,

CAPRICORN Coast basketball junior and intermediate grand finals were played on Sunday in front of an enthusiastic audience at the high school stadium. In a high scoring game, Devils took part in their fifth grand final in a row against first timers C C Lakers. Each team has two players competing in the Rockhampton competition with under 14 representative experience. It was Devils' newest player R Handcock who was the dark horse with an amazing 34 points from field goals, although only shooting 25 per cent from the free throw line. Added to the 33 points of Ryan Miller, with some great defence and assists to Devils' game plan from the team, the newcomers were always chasing a substantial edge. It was made more difficult when first half top-scorer Bobby White (8) was fouled off before the break. This left Lakers with only one player to spell on the bench and it was a strong fight to the end for the remaining six. Lakers top scorers were Adrian Moore (22) and Phillip Staley (12). Devils defeated C C Lakers 78-56. The intermediates gave coachAlanThomas his second grand final win of the day when Bombers failed to capitalise in the second half on their substantial foul advantage over Richmond. Richmond had 13 fouls to Bombers 6 at half time with only a six point deficit to close. Despite many close encounters in the past, Richmond finished the season with their biggest winning margin over the Blacks of 19 points. Top scorers: Craig Lawton, 18 and Brett Shackleton, 6 for Bombers and Kelvin Smith, 34 (24 in the second half) and Justin Spyve, 10. A delayed A men's preliminary final was also held on Sunday night between Hootans and Coasters. Coasters gabbed the early points starting with a well controlled game marked by fast and well-controlled passes under the direction of guard Sandy Sonnleitner. About 10 minutes into the game Hootans started to really capitalise their style of intercepts and fast breaks with left Coasters goal wide open. Young Ian Powne was particularly noticeable for his speed on the court and was the man, along with Pat Cranny, that Coasters really had the opportunity to foul off the court. Despite obvious fatigue by many Coasters who had Sandy off with illness in the second half, they did stage a major fight back ... almost wrestling the match from Hootans. They had some opportunities to score, but it didn't go their way in the last couple of minutes. With a Hootans score on the bell Coasters bowed out for 1989 after an excellent game, 4943.

EMU Park Rugby League Football Club has appointed its new coach for the 1990 Rockhampton reserve grade season and sign-on day is Sunday, December 10. The newly elected committee appointed experienced and premiership-winning coach Terry Simpson after considering four applications. He replaces Steve Anderson, who did not stand, after the club's inaugural season. The club finished in second place ... in its first year, of playing in the Rockhampton competition. Terry, 32, is a non-playing coach and has a wealth of knowledge from years spent with, the New South Wales Dapto and Kiama clubs. He has played under Cronulla-Sutherland coach Allan Fitzgibbon. He played as hooker in winning premierships for Dapto in 1978-80-81 and in 1982 went to Kiama for another pennant. He was then appointed coach of the Dapto reserves and in his first year the side reached the grand finals, losing 20-12. In 1984 Dapto went from fourth spot to premiers and lost the 1985 grand final. The sign-on, starting at llam, has been combined with a social cricket match, barbecue and refreshments at the old cricket 'grounds. An added attraction will be the handing out of last season's guernseys. The players who wore them are invited to go along and pick them up. Club president Eddie Mallard said the club was keen to improve on last year's success and wanted to introduce an under 19 team in 1990. "Any young blokes who would like to play, should turn up on December 10 so we will have an idea of the numbers available to play," Mr Mallard said. "If we are to expand and advance the game in Emu Park we must keep looking for further improvements. An under 19 side is an obvious avenue." Emu Park had an excellent first season: The highlights were four titantic struggles against Diehards. The club's new committee was formed at the annual general meeting on Sunday. Inaugural president Eddie Mallard and Rockhampton Rugby League Club delegate Danny Duffy retained their positions.

WHERE WERE THE SWANS ON A.G.M. NIGHT? lawn re tvate any `Don't let apathy Tke ltatlut4 disband club!' WILL you please print the following letter addressed to Yeppoon Australian Football Club Inc members and players? On Tuesday, November 14 last, the annual general meeting of Yeppoon Swans, your football club, was held at the Pacific Hotel, the time, 730pm. By 8pm, outgoing president Peter Motton declared the meeting open with an attendance of 24 members, coach and players. Where were the other members and players? The Strand Hotel had a show on, perhaps they were there. Wherever they were, let us hope they are now hanging their heads in shame. The Swans football club is at a turning point, a crossroads in its life ... a new football ground, the prospect of a clubhouse. What joy for those players with young sons coming on of their own. What joy to those present outgoing and past committees to see the fruits of their labours coming into being. No wonder we didn't win the 'flag' in the 1989 competition ... we can't even turn up for the annual general meeting and nominate and elect our committee for the 1990 season. There was no alternative ... the meeting was abandoned after one hour. No nominations for any of the vacant committee places, although a number of names were put forward out of those valiant present supporters. Why not? You may well ask. Past presidents, secretaries and treasurers and committee members will tell you: "Goon the Swans' committee - especially as president - and your name is mud!". Your own life and business suffers ... and the players resent you! As president you are expected to do it all ... and I mean all. Even to the extent of cleaning up after home games and running the raffles with the help of one or two local helpers. You do it every week! The players have the notion the fairies supply all their needs before games - tapes, footies, refreshments (especially the freebies), first aid supplies, clean up, write copious letters, attend to all league matters, ensure all business is attended to, accounts paid, sponsors found, trophy donations, and on and on and on. Wake up. It's your president and his small committee. Parents of juniors. The Swans are not a child-minding service to' drop off the boys and pick up after the game is over. Believe it or not - juniors take more effort and planning than the seniors - it doesn't just hapJ pen. What happened to parent involvement in our kids' sporting life? With the large number of juniors, a rostered parent system to assist would mean probably! once, at most twice, each season you would be required to spend a few hours in helping your son pursue a healthy sporting lifestyle. I know I speak for each and everyone who did take the time to attend Tuesday's annual general meeting when I say ... unless the committee, members and players are a 'united team' that elusive 'flag' will forever be out of

KINKA BEACH bloke is back from an extended holiday down south taking in Tasmania, the Adelaide Grand Prix and the Melbourne Cup. The holiday started off the right way with a drive to Sydney because of the airlines dispute. In Sydney, a friend had booked airline tickets for the rest of the holiday ... they had been paid for well in advance. Unfortunately, the airline was unable to carry the! Kinka Beach bloke and friend so they asked for their money back. Ah, that's not as easy as it seems. Apparently, while this particular 'airline likes to • see your money up-front, it requires at least six weeks to make a refund. What's happening to your money in the meantime ... when interest rates are so high? Anyway, they found another carrier and headed south. The Grand Prix was on the itinerary, because it was silly to miss it when heading south anyway. Yes, Adelaide did come alive... but our own Coast resident was a trifle disappointed in the actual race. It seems the $100' admission price is only the rust stage of seeing the race ... it's another $100, or more, to get a seat in a grandstand! Our resident decided to cut his losses and stand in the rain with the rest of the plebs and "hear" rather than "see" the Formula is go by. Yes, they were fast, he caught an occasional glimpse of some adver; tising billboard ripping by at 220km/h ... and that was the Grand Prix. Oh, he did catch some of the race on TV sets positioned strategically! The Melbourne Cup was something else. Our Kinka Beach resident was there, live, at the greatest annual event in Australia's sporting calendar ... and did not know who won until 20 minutes after the race had been run! He went into the betting ring to watch the prices change, picked the horse that came second (Super Impose) put $10 each way on it ... and they were off. Because of the crush he was still in the betting ring as the race went on. Unlike the Grand Prix, no TV sets were close handy so our Kinka Beach resident missed seeing it. He also missed hearing it because the loudspeakers were toy high ... they were aimed at the grandstands. People were jumping up and down around him shouting they had won and he found out 20 minutes after the race he was $60 better off! Luckily for our tourist he was luckier in Tasmania ... it was open!!!
