Coast keeps saying 'undecided' `I don't know how I'm going to votes.' TOMORROW'S State election looks certain to be a cliff-hanger both on the State scene and in Broadsound. Only totally one-eyed party faithful are predieting victory for their side and their candidate ... most people are saying they are still thinking about how they intend voting. In Broadsound, sitting Member Denis Hinton wants three more years on the basis of his achievements in his first term. ALP candidate Jim Pearce is promising to work for the area and is strongly campaigning on an anti-corruption stance. Liberal candidate Howard Rodda has campaigned on interest rates and what they are doing to families. Independent Pat O'Brien is pushing the environment and saying "the party's over". Citizens' Electoral Council candidate Les White is campaigning on Citizens' Initiated Referenda and believes the State should serve the people and not the people serve the State. Locally, the biggest issue in the campaign was police protection. The ALP offered a 24hour police station for Yeppoon; the Nationals countered with 24-hour service on weekends. The ALP was firm in its commitment ... the Nationals promised what they said was a "realistic" goal. All candidates, throughout the campaign, had a greenish tinge as a result of the environment becoming a focus of attention. The polls keep saying Labor, Labor ... and the Coast electors, when asked, keep saying Undecided, Undecided. And, for once, it's not a case of people keeping their political preferences to themselves. Those who are openly conservative have been stating their voting intentions, as have the openly Labor voters ... but there are many who are openly stating they in a quandary. "I don't know how I'm going to vote," has been a regular conversation starter. It seems that this time, this election, people are aware that a change of government is a distinct possibility. Tomorrow these undecided are going to put the numbers 1 to 5 on their ballot paper to decide the next Member for Broadsound ... and the next government for Queensland.

Readers fear wasted vote THE Capricorn Coast Mirror has received enough phone calls about the ins and outs of preferential voting, and the ultimate distribution of preferences, to print this explanation from returning officer Rod Young. The queries received at the office mainly concerned fears that not following a "how-tovote" card would result in an invalid vote. Most callers, apparently prepared to dump their normal first preference, were concerned that if they did not follow a ticket they would • lose their vote. One elector was concerned that the vote that did not follow a ticket would wind up "being thrown in the bin". Mr Young said the first thing every elector should remember was that a valid vote must have the numbers 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 in the squares on the Broadsound ballot paper. The five squares could be numbered in any order. It did not matter whether their fourth pref-

erence (number 4) was given to the candidate whose preferences were first distributed ... the vote would still be valid and would still be counted. Mr Young said preferences were distributed only in the event that one candidate did not get 50 per cent of allvotes cast ... plus one (making a first-past-the-post majority). If the five candidates were regarded as A, B, C, D and E, electors could put the numbers I to 5 in any order next to their names. If, for example, one candidate received 38 per cent of the vote, another 24 per cent, a third 20 per cent, the fourth 10 per cent and the fifth 6 per cent, the candidate with 6 per cent would have his preferences counted. In this case, even if the whole 6 per cent went to the candidate with 38 per cent, there would need to be another distribution of preferences because no one would have 50 per cent plus one vote. On the second distribution, the candidate

15,217 DECIDING NEXT M.L.A. FOR BROADSOUND BROADSOUND returning officer Rod Young said there were 15,217 on the roll for tomorrow's election, about 500 up on the previous election. While there is little change in the numbers, there has been a "staggering" change in the names on the roll. Mr Young said the rolls were being con-

stantly updated with up to one-third of the names changing each year. This did not mean people necessarily moving out of the electorate. In many cases people were changing their addresses from one street or town to another. Also, as people moved out of the electorate, others moved in.

deaths also changed the rolls. Mr Young said the name of any elector who died within Queensland was removed from the roll because the Queensland Registrar-General automatically sent advice of each death to the Electoral Office. Mr Young said the Electoral Office, so far as he was concerned, did a good job.

with 10 per cent would have hispreferences distributed. If, again, no candidate received a majority, a further distribution would be held using the votes from whichever candidate now had the least primary votes. This distribution would determine a winner because there would only be two candidates left to receive the votes. One would have to pass the 50 per cent mark. Every vote would be counted at every stage.

Pearce: maintained vision for Broadsound and Capricorn Coast •

By Labor candidate for Broadsound Jim Pearce

TOMORROW I join 89 other Labor candidates contesting seats throughout Queensland. I am proud to be a member of a team with strong and honest leadership, supported by positive policies. Broadsound will benefit from these policies, described by independent observers as the best platform developed by any political party for a Queensland election. Throughout my campaigning I have remained positive and maintained a vision for Broadsound and the Capricorn Coast which will be achieved by responsible representation and future optimism. As a candidate I have accepted responsibility for bringing the needs of our area to Labor's Shadow Ministers' attention. I have not made extravagant commitments. As Member for Broadsound I'll share your needs and future aspirations.

I will work with and for the people of Broadsound. As a family man with children attending schools within the electorate, I will make my family home on the Capricorn Coast. I want to make Broadsound and the Capricorn Coast a better place to live, to bring up families, to retire. What follows is an outline of some aspects of an action plan I have developed. It is part of my agenda as Member for Broadsound after December 2. In the area of economic activity I intend to work with local authorities, tourism and development organisations and proposed Office of Regional Development to strengthen our local economy. The extent of business failures and empty shops on the Coast are a cause for concern. Short-term measures such as industrial estates arc a good concept; they must be made to work. The Coast should be a better place in which

to conduct profitable business. I am prepared to champion small business because I believe without profitability in that area we cannot achieve employment for the Coast or generate investment, wages or spending. In Yeppoon a Labor Government will generate a Business Support Centre to provide practical assistance for business to develop and grow. The benefit of a road linking Yeppoon with the Bruce Highway north of Rockhampton has been generally accepted. Residents and tourist operators have been left off the map for too long. A Labor Government will conduct a feasibility study on this proposal. A link road to Bruce Highway is realistic and has my priority support. Schoolchildren and families in Broadsound will benefit from Labor. Capital works programmes will be directed to areas of need. I intend working with parents and citizens asso-

Rodda: a chance to help people with problems •

By Liberal candidate for Bnoadsound Howard Rodda

MY greatest personal satisfaction from 22 years' membership of a service club has been from being able to help people with problems, particularly disadvantaged people in our community. I see the opportunity as Member for Broadsound to be able to carry on this work at a higher level ... and to be in a position to tackle the bigger problems of the cause of the malaise in our society. These problems are the lack of financial security, loss of incentive in many of our young people, the exposure of our Senior Citizens to galloping inflation and the interest rate, nightmare of home buyers and small business. I congratulate the other candidates for the

seat of Broadsound on the campaign they have directed towards me. I have always believed it is not necessary to resort to vilification and personal abuse of and by opponents to try and win. The Liberal Party has the policies to put us back on a rising standard of living and a better way of life for all. A return of Liberal Government is a step in the direction of turning around the economy with the same policies that gave us a rising standard of living; some incentive for working with reasonable taxation and inflation rate; when you could buyyour own home (and afford it); look forward to your children having a secure job and security for yourself in later life because your savings held their value. At some stage our country has to stop being dragged into the economic mire. The opportunity is now ... and the choice is yours. I draw attention to Citizens Electoral Council supporters that my party is the only one that will support their aims and objects with the legislation they require. The Capricorn Coast's future is firmly based on the development of tourism, fishing, pineapples and small crop industries. With their prosperity, service industries move in to supply needs ... builders and developers. Liberal policy on the removal of land tax will be helpful as this cost is built into every devel-

opment. Our policy on payroll tax and its eventual elimination will assist the larger employer to expand his enterprise. Our clean beaches, long coastline and islands provide unending possibilities for leisure and adventure. Our greatest need is one to hold tourists and visitors for longer periods ... the answer is for more attractions right here on the Coast. A Disneyland-type has been mooted and it would be ideal, not only for tourists but for daytrippers from nearby centres. In the meantime, local service clubs do a great job in providing playground equipment and beautification of parks and provision of facilities. There is no better example of local achievement than establishment of the tourist information centre by Capricorn Coast people. It is a fitting landmark for tourists and a lasting tribute to the people who believe in our future. The initiative of the people who have put up the finance and contributed their services and time are to be commended. It has been a privilege to be associated with these people for seven years, either as vice president or president of the Capricorn Coast Tourist Organisation. As Member for Broadsound it would be a high priority matter to gain some government financial assistance to further their good work.

ciations which will receive extra funds. Labor's family commitment will increase the school text book allowance to a total of 8300 per student for both years 11 and 12. This initiative will also encourage more children to stay on after Year 10. For too long the Capricorn Coast's main exports have been school leavers and pineapples. We will extend the free dental care scheme to Years 8, 9 and 10. I have received representations from parents and citizens associations and parents and will, when elected, take up their concerns. As a parent and Member of Parliament I'll support the Labor Government's commitment to never legalise marijuana, heroin or any harmful drug. There will be an upgrading of the staffing and facilities of Yeppoon Police Station to provide 24-hour protection. Yeppoon Tourist Information Centre will benefit from Labor's approach to tourism development and promotion. Financial assistance will be forthcoming to ensure the viability and ongoing development of this centre. The Capricorn Coast has a high level of aged persons. My Yeppoon office will be available to assist the elderly requiring access to physiotherapy and podiatry services, long distance bus travel, medical equipment such as hearing aids, gas and electricity rebates, car registration and drivers licence fees, dental and optometric services. I intend to compile, publish and distribute a. Community Services Directory to provide people with a range of services, especially those relating to concessions, benefits and rebates. Broadsound has unique environmental features which must be carefully managed. My personal commitment in this area has been judged by local conservation groups as the most sound. The most important and fundamental issue in this election is the choice for change. I offer the people of Broadsound the chance to be represented in a good and honest government which will restore honesty and integrity to public life in Queensland. I am committed to hard work and fair representation in a government which will govern for all Queenslanders. We can have better standards, we can make Queensland a better place to live in. I ask, on Saturday, the people of Broadsound to support me in my desire to leave for future generations, a better Broadsound.

Good on you, Denis Hinton - it's time we had more Members of Parliament prepared to buck their party machines and say what they think on behalf of the people who elected them We want people who will say what they think. We want people who will put our case in Parliament. We want people who will tell Cabinet Ministers what WE want. We want people who are prepared to put the interests of their electorates ahead of their own careers, if necessary We repeat, good on you Denis. Don't back off. Everyone is behind you COURIER MAIL Editorial (Oct, 1987) ... The National Party Member for Broadsound, Mr Hinton, will attempt to raise the issue at the conference. He drew Sir Joh's wrath when, as a lowly backbencher with less than a year in Parliament, he publicly disagreed with the Premier. Sir Joh call him a rank amateur. But Mr Hinton has shown himself to be no political amateur when it comes to knowing what an elected representative's main job should be - fighting for what he believes most of his constituents want.

Hinton pledges 'diligence and plain hard work' •

By Member for Blvadsound Denis Hinton I SEEK the honour to represent you for a second term in Queensland Parliament. During the three years I have enjoyed my role as your representative in the electorate, Parliament and Government where I've sought to `make my presence felt' on your behalf and in the interests of my constituency. I categorise my role in three areas:Firstly, personal representations are important to individuals, solving problems large or small, providing information, and expediting Government procedures wherever possible. It's not always possible to be successful but I've tried to accommodate every request. Secondly, I've provided the essential infrastructure for my electorate, critical for the area's progress and residents' quality of life. Capital works and services provided by my representations in Broadsound exceed, I believe, the achievements of any other parliamentary member over the past three years and I'm particularly proud of my record.

$25,000 smile! A CAPRICORN Coast resident will have a happy Christmas this year after winning $25,000 in the instant casket. The resident's name is not for publication, but the ticket was purchased from Savemore Newsagency.

TAFE offers office studies INTERVIEWS for people interested in a short course in commercial and office studies at the Capricorn Coast TAFE Centre have been organised for next week. The course starts on Wednesday, February 7 and continues for three days a week for 18 weeks from 9am to 3pm. It will cover typing, word processing, introduction to computer software, reception and communication skills and switchboards. The course is designed for mature age people who want to return to the workforce, but not limited to them and keyboard skills are the only pre-requisite. Contact the TAFE centre, 33 6200, on Monday, December 4 to arrange an interview for Tuesday, December 5.

Upgrading of practically every school in the electorate to some degree has occurred. Middlemount received a new high school, Dysart High had a $1 million upgrading, Yeppoon High about $1 million, including library, home economics block and construction of assembly hall and indoor sports complex. A new administration block is the next priority. Emu Park School had a $150,000 upgrade and schools such as The Caves, Byfield, Farnborough and Yeppoon Primary had major additions. Pre-school education has been boosted with a pre-school at Farnborough and an early education unit at Byfield. TAFE education facilities costing $200,000 are now enjoyed by residents, with new TAFE College planned. Roadworks were massive in Broadsound with $9.2 million on reconstruction of DingoMt Flora Road. A $6 million four-lane highway for 9.6 kilometres of Rockhampton/Yeppoon Road has improved the road to Rockhampton and I intend to extend this section. Ridgelands Road and Byfield Road received upgrades. $1 million reconstruction on Rosslyn Bay to Kinka Beach Road is about to begin and Emu Park/Rockhampton Road has benefited from $1.7 million Ellrot overpass and Si million upgrade in Blacks Bridge area - about to begin. In March a S1.8 million Causeway bridge and Causeway widening programme starts. Improving the quality of life for Senior Citizens has been high priority. Construction of a 40 bed nursing home, Gertrude (Gus) Moore MBE Memorial Nursing Home, is nearing completion and will be one of Queensland's finest. I've endeavoured to improve the lot of pensioners in housing distress by providing multiple blocks of modern-pensioner units at low Shuttlewood Lodge' and recently opened 'Ron Kershaw Lodge' will be followed by a further block to be constructed in Old Rockhampton Road and next block at Emu Park. I'm enormously proud of this programme. Rosslyn Bay Harbour construction is one of my proudest and most difficult achievements. A deep-water safe harbourage at a cost to the Government of S4.6 million in partnership with Keppel Gateway Ltd, has provided a safe harbour for existing harbour users, and basis for a modem 350 berth marina and tourism complex that will be the jewel in the Capricorn Coast's crown. It will be an enormous boost to tourism

with yachts arriving from all over the world. The fishing industry will benefit from having a safe, silt-free harbour. Existing silt in the harbour is to be dredged out. $1 million was provide for new wharves and other facilities to improve the existing harbour. Tourism has been boosted from many of the above initiatives with the road sign designation of the tourist loop signs having possibly doubled the Coast's road tourist traffic. Livingstone Shire is the beneficiary of financial assistance with a S2.3 million grant for the filtration plant to provide clean water. How many remember the dirty brown foul smelling water we had. Emu Park sewerage - a $2 million interestfree loan to enable conception of a viable scheme. The list is endless, but it has not come easily and has had to be fought for in competition with 88 other members. I believe I have not let the Coast down and will continue with the same vigour and enthusiasm. My third role is to represent you in State Parliament, where I am recognised even by my opponents as one of the strongest debators in the Parliament. Conservation and control of foreign investment are my particular interests and Byfield National Park is a major milestone for me. Fishing industry conservation measures have high priority and I enjoy working with this industry. Finally, I pledge the people of Broadsound if elected, I will continue the same diligence in representation and plain hard work I have delivered over the past three years ... I can offer no more.




THE election on Saturday is a change for Queenslanders to say they want a real change to the way their State is governed. There can be no change in Queensland whatsoever without a change of Government and there can be no change of Government without the election of a Labor Government. So the choice for voters is between a real change with a Goss Government or no change at all with a coalition dominated by the National Party. This election is about a fresh start for our State, or a return to the past and the days of corruption and cronyism under a National Party-led coalition. The election is a chance for voters to deliver their verdict on Government and Coalition Parties which the Fitzgerald Inquiry has found guilty of presiding over corruption on a grand scale.

fishing and farming; and on and on. To maximise our natural resources, we need to support "value-added" industry - where processing resources takes place in Broadsound. Our coal mines need to become more energy-efficient and revegetating mine sites with native timber needs to be researched and implemented. Our agricultural industries could be expanded by tanneries, canneries, dried fruit processing, tourism. Our beef cattle industry already does this paddock to meatworks, into cartons and overseas. Why can't our fruit and vegetable industry do the same? Our beef cattle industry is already looking towards "value-added" ... a tannery and a cattledrome. "Value-added" tourism is perfect for our fishing industry, small crops and forestry. "Niche" agriculture, which includes rare fruits, strawberries, organically grown produce, hydroponics and aquaculture have enormous potential to develop tourism as a sideline. It is vital the Capricorn Coast horticultural strip extending from Byfield to Cawarral be protected from urban sprawl. Our fishing industry needs protection from loss of breeding areas and lack of adequate management. It is important locals be involved in decisions affecting local fishery. Regional fish management areas may be part of the answer to establishing a sustainable fishery. Fish management should be planned years ahead, not just for tomorrow. I believe there is enormous potential in Broadsound for nature-based tourism. The Recreation Area Management Bill that went through Parliament recently has some legislative problems that need to be resolved. When they are, imagine a tourism area that includes the environment parks around the southern edge of Corio Bay; wetlands; coastal ranges; Byfield State Forest; Byfield National Park; Corio Bay Fish Habitat Reserve and possibly the coastal fringe of Shoalwater Bay Army area north to Pearl Bay. This mix of private and government-owned land could be under one government management and promotion authority. It would be the largest and most attractive area of its kind on the east coast. We have a major tourist resource here in our backyard - all we need to do is protect and promote it. We must look at our young people's future. It is the responsibility of government to see young people have a good education and the

opportunity to establish themselves in their own small business as an alternative to working for someone else. To this end the establishment of small business incubation centres and the scrapping of small business restrictive regulations needs to be implemented. We need a youth shelter on the Coast and full-time experienced youthworker to help and encourage young unemployed to become independent and useful citizens. The justice system works against them. Some young unemployed people are fined for misdemeanours when they could be placed on community service. When they can't pay they are jailed. Hopefully this will change when the Criminal Justice Review Commission hands down its recommendations. I believe it is our right to breathe clean air; to drink unpolluted water; eat uncontaminated food. Our children's future depends on the future of the planet. I consider Life Education Units to be one of the most important projects of the day and should be fully government funded. We need to change attitudes - to teach our children to respect, care and enjoy themselves without abusing their bodies. Before you place your vote on Saturday, think about what I, as an independent in State Government, can do for Broadsound. Whichever party is elected to govern Queensland, from my seat on the crossbenches I would be in a position to vote with the government or opposition - without being constrained by party policies. By voting an independent into office, you can be sure your Member for Broadsound will not be an ineffective voice on the opposition benches. As an independent I have the right to present private members bills and lobby party politicians. Decisions affecting Broadsound would be made here and not Brisbane party rooms. Have you thought about the publicity for Central Queensland if a Green Independent was elected in Broadsound? We could show the whole country how industry, coal mining, agriculture, tourism and conservation work together for a rich and sustainable future. We could be the first. It could happen here in Broadsound with your vote. Whether or not I win Broadsound, I can promise you - I will still live and work here alongside other committed conservationists for the benefit of all people, environment and a sustainable future for generations.

to Rockhampton Hospitals Board LIVINGSTONE Shire councillor M aurie Webb has been appointed a member of the Rockhampton Hospitals Board ... the second Capricorn Coast representative. Cr Webb said he joins Bob Collins as one of two Coastrepresentatives able to discuss Yeppoon Hospital, and Nursing Home, needs directly with the decision-making body. Health Minister Ivan Gibbs announced the appointment in aletter to Cr Webb. Mr Gibbs said State Governor Sir Walter Campbell, acting on advice of the Executive Council, was "pleased to appoint you a member of the Rockhampton Hospitals Board". Mr Gibbs said Cr Webb was replacing Norm Byrne. Cr Webb has been appointed for a term expiring June 30, 1991. This is the expiry date of present board members. Mr Gibbs said notification of Cr Webb's appointment was being published in the Government Gazette. Cr Webb said he had previously served as a Rockhampton Hospitals Board member when nominated by Living tone Shire Council during a previous term as councillor. He had been unaware of this new appointment and was pleased he had not only been considered but had been selected. He said he would attend the monthly board meetings and would probably be appointed to a committee which would also meet monthly. "The advent of the new nursing home will be of particular interest to me," Cr Webb said. "I am pleased to once again be able to work with Bob Collins. He was there during my previous term."

their respective parties to vote on issues, in the Parliament, according to the directions of their party. It is illegal to use a threat to force a Member of Parliament to vote yet party members constantly face the threat of expulsion or disendorsement if they don't toe the party line. But as your CEC parliamentarian, I will be legally bound to vote in accordance with the wishes of the majority of electors in Broadsound. I have pledged to do so by signing my resignation from Parliament which can be dated by you, the people, after certain rules are followed, and handed in to the Speaker, should I not perform for the people. In other words, the electors of Broadsound can give me the sack; something electors cannot do to any other candidate. Only the CEC has returned this great strength to the people. The CEC is concerned about certain issues. One of the most pressing is the family unit which members regard as the most important aspect of society. Our present money system needs to be reorganised so that the depressing burden of debt can be lifted from the family. Increasing interest rates driving up home mortgage payments are turning people out of their homes, farmers off their land and businessmen into bankruptcy. All of this is happening while banks are making profits so big as to be regarded as obscene. All money, with the singular exception of that money used by a bank for its own purposes, comes into circulation as a debt to a bank in our bank loan/debt system. The bank advances only the amount of the loan, never the interest that has to be paid. The result of that is that we all have to borrow, and continue to borrow, just to pay interest.

(See pamphlet: "The State Bank Removes the Need for Taxes", copies from Les White, MS/76, Rockhampton. 4702) The banks have known this since 1694 when the Bank of England began to issue loan money at interest. Our need is to stop this nonsense and put the "sense" back into the dollar. This can be done by operating a State Parliamentary and Local Government Bank to take care of the artificial shortage of money. I am pledged to lobby for this bank, if it is the will of the people of Broadsound for me to do so, to reduce their monstrous, inhuman debt. I am also bound by the CEC's constitution to vote against any Bill that is not accessible to the electors for at least 30 days before being debated. This means •a ll proposed laws must be available to the electors to study and decide how theywish to direct me to vote in the Parliament. Another important plank in the CEC's platform is Citizens' Initiated Referenda and Recall (CIR). CIR works, initially, by petition. In the case of Queensland, between 5000 and 10,000 people must sign a petition calling for a referendum on the issue. If those signatures are gained, the government must call a referendum. If the referendum is carried any legislation becomes law or is repealed ... no further steps are needed. CIR, on its own, will be enough to stop bad legislation being forced through the House by party members. I cannot make extravagant claims and promises, I can only promise to carry the will of the people to the Parliament. This is true representative, Parliamentary, democracy. Vote 1 for Les White and know what it is like to really be involved in government ... every step of the way.

THE five candidates for Broadsound were invited last week to submit 750 words on why they felt they deserved to become the next Member for Broadsound. The only restriction on them was that the space could not be used to attack other candidates. You have read their words now it's over to you!

Full accountability in Government A fair electoral system Better consideration for our Senior Citizens A clean up of cronyism and corruption

Having lived on the Capricorn Coast for 9 years, I am well aware of the needs of the area and electorate in general. Most of my working life has been in farming/grazing - my family is still involved in CQ; my experience in Tourism and local affairs has been invaluable. I have been privileged to have served as President of the following organisations - Capricorn Coast Tourist Organisation (2 years), Vice President (5 years); Yeppoon Swans Football Club (4 years); Yeppoon Lions (22 years membership Lions International); Capricorn Australian Football League (4 years) and 3 years Treasurer Capricorn Coast Chamber of Commerce and Industry. People in Broadsound tell me their big concerns are exhorbitant interest rates that cripple their businesses, home buyers are in a financial nightmare - 500,000 Australians will lose their homes. Their other concern is lack of job opportunities because of the sagging economy.

BROADSOUND DESERVES BETTER Wage earners resent their taxes going to people on the dole who will not take jobs offering, preferring the easy existence of not working. Senior Citizens with small incomes daily eroded by galloping inflation, it is claimed they could provide a steak dinner six years ago for what it costs for a can of beans today ... more State concessions needed.

GIVE THE LIBERALS A GO Labor asks for one term in Government. Whitlam asked for the same in '72. Remember what happened? - rising inflation, unemployment, interest rates and foreign debt! It's TIME we learned our lesson. CEC supporters are reminded the Liberal Party is the only one prepared to legislate for their aims and objects.

It was the end of a week organised by Lions members to make people aware of unused drugs in their homes. "It was a great success. People were able to get rid of dangerous and out-of-date medication safely," Lions president Don Knowles said. "We thank Higgins Pharmacy and Stewart and Brumm for allowing the drugs to be left on their premises and also Yeppoon Hospital for destroying the drugs." Lions members assisted Const Brett Heath at Savemore on Saturday with the display. They arranged videos and information on health and drug awareness. "The awareness day was so successful, I want to have a bigger display with more information in the new year," Sgt Tanzer said. "Quite a few parents now know what marijuana looks like. They wanted to know what people did with the plants ... whether people ate the plant or just smoked it. "Const Heath was on hand to explain everything and hopefullywe have increased parents' awareness on the hazards of illegal drugs."

COUNCIL INVITES NEW MLA TO TALKS PLEASE permit me to respond to the statement printed in the Capricorn Coast Mirror, (issue 327), by Mr J Pearce, candidate for the seat of Broadsound. The council issued an invitation to Mr Pearce to attend the second day of its November meeting to address and substantiate allegations of impropriety in its dealing and poor performance in carrying out its functions.

RECENTLY we were camped at a local camp-site with a group of young children for a mother and daughter camp. On Saturday morningwe (girls, leaders and mothers) walked to Daniel Park, Cooee Bay to play before breakfast. We arrived at the park at about 7am. We were there for a while when a man came over and told us to "get the kids off the swing". He was not very polite to the mothers or leaders in front girls who are aged from seven to 11 years. After he left, the children continued playing

WHAT a funny lot of people we have representing us on our local council ... they want to charge a family $38 per year to test their swimming pool water, I presume this is for health reasons. This pool, by the way, is out in the bush and not for public use and not even on town water. On the other hand they allow a toxic industry to exist virtually in the centre of town. On many days the fumes from this place cause people to walk on the opposite side of the road to try and get away from them.

in the park. They were not making excessive noise. He then started yelling at us from across the road. So, we decided to leave. We believe parks are for playing and assumed it was okay for us to take the girls there. , It was after 7am. Surely, there must be other children who play in the park in the mornings. Admittedly the swing squeaks, but we couldn't help that ... maybe someone could give them an occasional grease to maintain and stop the squeaking. - Name and address supplied.

I HAVE despatched the following letter to Mrs Keith Wright. Dear Alison, I was shocked to see the full page advertisement in last week's paper and it brought home to me how in the heat of parliamentary debate in September, a comment was made with the best of intentions, that apparently wounded an innocent bystander. Being married to a politician yourself you must be aware that interjections and disruption in the house can cause a member to respond abruptly.

These fumes are quite toxic and dangerous and people have been known to have died from inhaling them and some have been jailed for sniffing them, yet here we have a council allowing you to do it free. I wonder if this type of industry shows up on the town plan and strategic plan we were supposed to get years ago. Please don't try to tell me the dos and don'ts of this industry, I have been involved in it for the past 40 years. - E Jackson, 5 Bird wood Avenue, Yeppoon.

ROSS AND SANDRA Wilson, the new Coast residents who last week wanted to know why they had to pay $38 for swimming pool registration now have another query ... why did Livingstone Shire Council allow them to buy a house with a registered swimming pool that has no fence? The Wilsons, only months after buying their semi-retirement home at Bungundarra, have been told they have to put a security fence around the pool that came with the home. Yet the previous owners' building plans approved by council showed the new house, the pool and the safety fence. The council's building department approved the dwelling after it was completed but there was no fence around the pool. Mr Wilson said the pool and the fence were a puzzle that he would like council to resolve by waiving the need for any fence to be built. Of particular interest to him is how the council can charge $38 a year for pool registration when the pool, without a fence, probably should not be registered. "I think it's a case of the council being more interested in collecting the money than in doing its job," he said on the weekend. "No doubt the council collected application fees from the previous owner for the construction of the house and the pool but I have my doubts about whether the various construction phases were ever inspected. "Obviously, since there is no fence around the pool, something went wrong." He decided to start his inquiries last Wednesday when he called at the council to ask why he had to pay an annual pool registration fee of $38 when nearby councils had no such charge. He also wanted to know what he was getting for the S38. He said he was told other councils not only charged similar fees but also that Livingstone Shire Council had been the last one to seek such a charge. "That was wrong and I said so," Mr Wilson said. "I contacted Gladstone City and Calliope Shire Councils and they told me they did not have any pool registration fee. Rockhampton City Council said it had a fee in its by-laws but did not charge it." In reply to what he got for the money, Mr Wilson said he was told council would check the quality of his pool's water should there be a complaint. "I asked how many such complaints council had received and was told there had never been one," Mr Wilson said. As a result of his visit, a council officer visited Mr and Mrs Wilson's home last Wednesday afternoon, the same day that he made his inquiry. "The officer checked the water with a machine that he told me cost $500," Mr Wilson said. "I immediately checked the water with my $20 or $30 kit and got exactly the same reading. The water was perfect and it cost me far less to find out than it cost the ratepayers." While there, the officer detailed the security measures that would have to be taken around the pool.

The pool is so close to the rear patio that fencing would have to attach to the home itself. Also, Mr Wilson said he was told he had to change locks on doors leading onto the pati they could not be reached by children, and a sliding doorwould have to be converted to selfclose. "But what is totally ridiculous is that just 20 or 30 metres from the house and pool there's a creek that becomes a torrent during periods of rain," Mr Wilson said. "This creek is part of our property, has extremely steep sides that a child would be unable to climb, has debris at the creek edge that would injure anyone falling down the bank ... but that creek doesn't have to be fenced. "As soon as I saw that creek I started putting in star stakes to fence it off from the house be• CONTINUED ON PAGE 15

• CONTINUED FROM PAGE 14 cause I have a young grandchild who may visit one day. "That creek would be a definite attraction to a child and it's represents a more lethal threat than the pool close to the house where it can be monitored. "But the officer said I don't have to fence the creek ... there's no by-law on that." Mr Wilson said he did learn that the pool had not been inspected because the person who was supposed to do that job had been on sick leave at the time of construction. "But the council has no valid excuse," Mr Wilson said. "This pool and house were built simultaneously. The pool was actually the first stage of construction because the dirt removed for the pool was used to level the slab for the house." What particularly irks him is that both he and his wife, and his solicitor, were aware the pool wasn't fenced at the time they proceeded • with the contract to buy the house. "My wife went to the council with a friend and inquired about the lack of a fence and was told there was a by-law regarding fences and it did apply to rural blocks ... but council wasn't enforcing it," Mr Wilson said. "There are other unfenced pools in rural areas and I want council to leave us alone and let us enjoy our new house, pool and rural lifestyle without a fence," Mr Wilson said. He estimated it would cost a minimum of S2000 to fence the pool to council's stringent requirements. "We have to provide a proper safety fence that will stop anyone from gaining a toe-hold and climbing over the fence," he said. "Yet the Olympic pool at Cooee Bay has a chain-wire fence topped by two strands of barbedwire ... anyone could climb that. "I've also heard the new public pool at Emu Park has a similar fence. How come the council allows these pools, right in the town areas, to get awaywith fences that ratepayers cannot build?" Mr Wilson will be writing to council detailing his complaints and including five pages that were faxed to his solicitor from council. These faxed pages show the building permit council issued for the house andpool, a drawing showing the pool, its proximity to the house and a safety fence around it. The faxes were sent in reply to a query from the solicitor. A covering letter from council stated there had been an inspection of the work site and all construction had received council approval. The letter does state that: "council has noted however that the required safety fence has not been erected around the pool. The construction of this safety fence should be attended to and the health Department of council advised upon its completion". Mr Wilson said the letter, dated June 29 this year, was what had prompted his wife's visit to the council where he claims she was told the fence was not needed in a rural area. "That letter was sent to us before we bought the property," Mr Wilson said. "If the council intended doing its job properly it should have insisted the then owner complete the building as had been approved by council. "The council should have followed through the moment it was aware the house had been completed without the pool fence. "That's the council's responsibility to its ratepayers ... and future ratepayers such as us."

0ME'TIMES in life we see an opportunity to thank those who have led the way with service, support and encouragement and loyal friendship. Last week Forum members were delighted to pay honour to foundation member Leo Carpenter. The party, organised publicly for Christmas and secretly as a farewell, was fun ... and the-champagne flowed. Messages of friendship and tributes were made and a presentation of a pastry server was given by Billie Sinclair on behalf of the members. Joan Byatt presented Leo with a scroll showing involvement of the many Forum clubs in which she had served. Joanne Madden and Joan Byatt organised the evening, Jackie Hole arranged the striking flower arrangements and the food was provided by members. The toasts were warm and genuine ... they didn't lose a friend, they lost a learned counsel. Guests came from Emu Park and Rockhampton and included Pat Ross, Bonnie Beak, Kit Martin, Betty Besch, Betty Vinnicombe, Helen Hinchliffe, Helene Jones, Margaret Shwarer, Irene Keding, Lorraine Antonello, Dianne Isles of Gladstone, Debbie Byrne, Sue Waddell, Kath Madden, Rene West, Sue Maclean, Betty Appleton, Beryl Watson and Jo Rundle. Speakers to 'Christmas comes but once a year' were Jackie Hole, Kit Martin, Joan Byatt, Leo •Carpenter, Cheryl Whellan, Jan Edwards and Joanne Madden. The vote of thanks was given ast club critic Eunice Cowdray.

1AX Kilby of 4 Marlin Street celebrated his

It is bath for the aged and frail and means no lifting for nursing staff. They have S1000 and when Mt Morgan purchased one a couple if years ago the cost was 54000 ... so we had better start working.

Services you may need Buy or hire a Covermate Campa for Christmas

V: " 444 ,,

• ABOVE: The 50kg Covermate Campa shown unpacked, in foreground, and assembled (20 minutes later) behind. ONE of the drawbacks to the eisure industry is that the leisure equipment such as boats, caravans and tents spent more time idle than being used. This represents too much of a waste of money for some people but Sid McDowall of Hidden Valley Road overcome this problem with the Covermate Campa. It's one of those ideas that deserves support, not simplybecause it's Coast designed and built, but also because it's a great idea! The Covermate Campa is a comfortable camper for four adults ... easily. It's 16' long, 7'6" wide and 8' high! And that's why the idea is so great ... when you're not using it on weekends or during holidays for accommodation you can park your car, boat or whatever in it! It can be used year-round ... and the "head of the house" can see the value in it. You can contact Sid on 39 4774 or call at the factory at 53 Tanby Road for a demo. The Covermate Campa costs just $1950 ... and it -won't take too many motel rates to pay that back. Or, if you only need some extra

accommodation for friends dropping in over Christmas, talk to Sid about renting one. He will set it up anywhere on the Coast and it will cost you just $80 per week! By the way, the whole campa comes in a box measuring just 5'xl'xl' so it can be carried in a station wagon or on the roof of any vehicle. Don't spend these holidays at home. Get out of the house with the kids and enjoy a genuine camping holiday at a price you can afford.

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

Mobile Auto Electrics firm based in Yeppoon BEASLEYS Mobile Auto Electrics is a locally-owned business that has opened in Yeppoon offering a full, comprehensive electrical service to automotive and marine customers. Beasley's Mobile Auto Electrics started two years ago in the Rockhampton district and quickly built up a following among heavy machinery and marine users. That business was totally mobile but fast growth made Stephen, David and Lorna Beasley see the need for a base ... one fixed address from which to dispatch the mobile unit while at the same time provide a service to passers-by. The family scouted around the region and decided Yeppoon was the logical base. New premises on the Old Rockhampton Road (adjacent to Keith Nutley's Auto Care Centre and opposite Yeppoon Showground) were chosen because of size and design. The mobile service will be maintained for marine work and emergency roadside service together with a towing facility if necessary. All automotive and marine electrical work is covered, including electronic problems and full airconditioning service. Naturally, with a business that operates around-the-clock with a mobile service, communications play a big part. Customers can phone Beasley's on 39 4668 at the workshop or after hours at 34 4146. In addition, customers on the run can contact Beasley's on UHF radio by call-sign QCR 050 or on radio-telephone by dialling (076) 542100 and asking for 7QSB. With their own communications so neatly interfaced, the Beasleys can offer solid advice on the communications facilities they retail. They have a wide range of of radios including VHF, UHF, CB and 27mHz marine, complete with aerials and fitting if required.

As an additional service to the Capricorn Coast, a refrigeration service concentrating on commercial cold storage will be provided by business associate Ed Handley who is now operating from the Old Rockhampton Road premises. Stephen, Dave and Lorna Beasley, who live at Cawarral, trust Coast residents will appreciate the additional services offered and they invite business people and residents to "give us a go" and enjoy the convenience of an additional local automotive electrical service. Their retail section stocks and sells lights, fittings, switches, batteries and new and exchange generators, alternators and starters. By the way, when the Beasleys say around-the-clock, they mean it ... if your vehicle won't go get on your phone, radio or radio telephone to them and they's be there! That's their business!

20-point safety check for boats just $20! DON'T let your boat spend this summer in a workshop when it could be taking you and your family to Great Keppel for a great day. Instead, spend $20 for a 20point service safety check and get a written report on your boat, motor and trailer. This is a great pre-Christmas workshop offer from Mark Stephenson, the Marine Mechanic at Cooee Bay Marine, 49 Tanby Road, Yeppoon (phone 39 1675). Phone Mark, take your rig to Cooee Bay Marine and leave the rest to him. You'll have your rig checked from stem to stern and know you can enjoy worry-free summer fun. At no extra cost, Mark Stephenson will pressure test the gearbox and recharge with oil. But don't put it off ... this offer applies only until December 30!

WHAT do you do when you find or accidentally injure any of our native animals or birds? The person who cares for injured fauna is Gail Matthews. That doesn't mean you take your hurt budgie, cat or dog to her ... they go to the veterinary. Gail, 39 3316, lives in Yeppoon Crescent. She arranges for the animals and birds to be released in the wild when they are able to care for themselves.

• CONTINUED FROM PAGE 24 from good position failed the find the basket. This was despite gaining so many reboun Despite the loss of Thomas with an inju.-41 ankle, it seemed Seagulls would take gold. But the scoring machine of Stevenson and Asher kept them on the back foot and a silly accidental trip by forward Alison Shackleton put her out of the game for 10 minutes. That was enough to put Nomads on the winning dais. Sandy McC osker put in a noticeable performance for Seagulls. There were no surprises in the A men's game after Saints domination this season. Determined to avenge their loss of last season's grand final, Saints never really looked threatened this season and Saturday's game against Hootans was no exception. "The parochial crowd bias against Saints was a little unfortunate as they are perceived as a Rockhampton team," publicity officer Don Willoughby said. "But more than 50 per cent of the team's either Coast residents or players registered here who do not play in Rockhampton." Hootans, after failing to put any real pressure on Saints in the first half showed a much better effort in the second half. They still seemed reluctant to take the ball to the basket and draw all important fowls which pressure the opposition ... a manoeuvre Saints used to good effect. It's difficult to pick best players for Saints, but Gayle Lorraway was notable in putting in one of her best games of the season. Hoc s best performers, who never said die, V, --le Dominic Vigar, Geoff Arnold and Pat Cranny. Aside from grand final presentations, the evening ceremonies included awards to individual players for a range of categories assessed on the year's performances. Junior encouragement awards: C C Lakers, Kerry Buchholz and Philip Staley; Devils, Chad Brown and Melissa Miller; Mighty Midgets, Cody Harris and Angela Thwaite; Phantoms, Paul Scott and Brett Hamilton; Thundercats, Scot( Shackleton and Shannon Priem; Hornets, Carla eSvenson and Barry Phillips; Richmond, Justin Spyve and Andrew Prince; Wolfpac, Bjorn Prince and Franklin Edwards; Zeon, Jodie Thompson and Wesley Titmarsh; Jets, Bronwyn Timms and Barbara Irwin; Flames, Sonia Phillips and Tracey Bromley; Bombers, Scott Leslie and Brett Shackleton.

YEPPOON Ladies Bowling Club president Marj Bierwirth welcomed six visiting Rockhampton clubs headed by CQDLBA president Linda Waite on Tuesday to the club's trophy presentations. Other clubs in attendance were RLBC, Victoria Park, NRLBC, ALBC and DMLBC. Unfortunately the green is still closed and bowls were not played ... but everyone enjoyed the afternoon. After a special luncheon the guests enjoyed some light-hearted entertainment. Long-time secretary Mary Crowe celebrated her birthday on that day and all joined in the traditional song in her honour. The date of the green's opening is still uncertain,,but publicity officer Ivy McNamara said members hoped it would be ready for the mixed get-together on Saturday, tomorrow. "Evening entertainment starts about 7pm with music, dancing and fun for all," she said. "Supper is served at about 10pm and admission is free." The ladies club has a change of venue for the Christmas luncheon ... now noon at the sailing club on Wednesday, December 6 with lunch served at 12.30pm. The annual meeting is on Friday, December 8 at 130pm in the clubhouse. "Please everyone, make an effort to come along. It is not only in the club's interest, but yours as well. Also, please ladies, bring a plate for afternoon tea." During the presentations president Bierwirth congratulated the seven women who represented Central Queensland in Bundaberg last weekend in the Bonney Shield. This inter-association competition was started last year and the Central Queensland women were delighted to win and bring home the shield ... now two years' running. The CQDLBA and players were extremely proud to win after competing against the year's top bowlers. One of the Bundaberg players represents the State. A close, exciting finish was watched by players and one report said CQDLBA officials would need to repair the seat they were on ... their fingernails were found on the lawn underneath them. "The shield must remain in the clubhouse of whichever club our CQDLBA president is a declared member. Other clubs can't display the shield, but it can be seen at Athelstane," she said.

TERRIFIC NIGHT A TERRIFIC night was the verdict of the 80 people who attended Yeppoon Indoor Bowling Club's Christmas dinner in the club's hall at Yeppoon Showground. Included in those present were six members of the Mackay Indoor Bowls Association, four from Baker's Creek and two from Emu Park Indoor Bowling Club. Kath Mcllwraith was compere for the evening and she provided a programme of song, dance and games. Many of those present were in fancy costume and prizes were awarded to Alma Jones and Bernie Robson who portrayed street women and Jean Whiteacre who went as a gardener. Items were contributed by Phyl Rumpf, Gary Warren (solos), Ivy Mallory (yodel), Ken Jones (mouth organ) and a medley of songs by a group of women members. Rowena Stevens donated the Christmas cake which was iced by member Mary Miller's grand-daughter. Music for the dancing and singing was provided by well known Yeppoon pianist Leila Goodwin.

Wicket needs care CAPRICORN Coast Cricket Club needs constant help to maintain the turf wicket at Yeppoon Showground. The local side as well as Rockhampton teams play on the wicket everyweekend and to keep it in top condition more players and members are needed. The same people have been working on it. and would appreciate help from other quarters. If you are able to help, contact Ron Christie or Ted Pidcock. SECOND grade Capricorn Coast cricket side played Grammar in its first away game this season. Captain Jeff Ingle won the toss and sent Grammar into bat. At stumps the Rockhampton side was seven for 196. It was a slow knock by Grammar with one batsman scoring a century not out. The same batsman was dropped when he was on 60. Coast's bowlers did a good job containing the opposition, but come still need to improve their line. Ken Ogilvie took one wicket for 37 from five overs. Wayne Kitchener took one for 47 from 22. Ian Anderson took four for 59 from 20. Brad West took one for 18 from six and Jeff Ingle took no wickets for 34 runs from 14 overs. Big Ian Anderson looked like a prima ballerina when he jumped high in the air to take a brilliant catch off his own bowling. Coast, which has scored 200 plus runs quite frequently this season, will have to produce the goods again to gain first innings points when play resumes tomorrow, Saturday, at 12.45pm.

Basketballers play senior grand finals CAPRICORN Coast basketball senior grand finals were played on Saturday and ended the 1989 season. The B men's final was contested by the youngest team, Generals. The team mainly comprises Yeppoon High School students. They played against Exploding White Mice, last year's high school students. After a strong stint by EWM, they came under pressure from the more co-ordinated percentage Generals' game that managed scores from every player as they penetrated EWM's zone. Over-confidence crept into Generals by the second half, but EWM staged a fight back, trailing by one point, with three minutes to the bell. The loss of EWM's big post player Anthony Warwick, with five fouls, signalled the end of their 1989 chance. Generals' best players were Trent Thompson and Richard Caulfield while Earl Jones and Aaron Thompson looked the most outstanding for EWM. Close games make great games and there were none closer than the Nomads v Seagulls encounter. Seagulls looked stronger in defence and offence, constantly penetrating Nomads' basket and excluding the easy shots from Nomads. This edge was negated by some great outside shooting by Kellie Stevenson and Sue Asher with three pointers. Seagulls' Alison Thomas made good percentages from her shots but many other attempts

SUZY decided on Sunday she would phone a mate in Brisbane to find out how people in the real big smoke were voting. The mate said she didn't know how thingswere going in her State seat; in fact she didn't know the name of her State seat. Worse, she didn't know who the candidates were, what parties were standing or even how many candidates were standing. Suzy asked her what happened to the political literature that was no doubt stuffed in her letterbox and the mate said she threw it in the bin without reading it. She wasn't interested in political advertisements on TV, didn't listen to the radio and, worse, didn't read newspapers. Shocked, Suzy asked her how she could cast a vote if she didn't know anything about the election? Her mate said there was nothing to it, she just went along to a polling booth, had a look at a few how-to-vote cards, then cast her vote. Just think, that mate is cancelling out someone else's ... and it could be yours!!! • • • BY the way, that mate was one of the people who believed that a vote had to follow a how-to-vote card or it wasn't counted. See the story elsewhere on this matter ... the are quite a few confused people and perhap---• it's time the Electoral Office spent a few bob explaining voting procedures. On the same note, one of the parties showed a hand holding a vote hovering over one ballot box with a party name on it then switching to another box with another party name on it. As a result there are probably people who think this is how it's done. If voting was not compulsory, advertisements like that would turn people away because they would think everyone could see how they were voting. • • • ONE story floating around this week concerns a plan to add an extra year to high school. One Coast father, who knows how much his son "loves" school, told him he'd better watch out or he'd be incarcerated for three more years rather than just two more. Older brother, who had already left school, overheard this and shouted out he wasn't going back whatever the government decided! It took half-an-hour to calm him down!!! • • • RHODES Watson, the Mirror's numberone photographer, (he's number one because he won't give "old Baldy" any film or a camera) has a hearing problem. It's no big deal to him but it does cause him to walk with a list on occasions, make him walk into walls and generally demolish buildings. Anyway, while photographing Susan Dowie's School of Drama graduation concert on Sunday he heard a line in the show that really tickled his fancy. One kid says to another: "You have custard in one ear and jelly in the other." The second kid replies: "Speak up, I'm a trifle deaf'!!!
