ALP's Pearce tapp BROADSOUND member-elect Jim Pearce said this week he was happy with Saturday's election result. "It was a hard campaign, but with my family's help and the assistance of branch members and supporters I would not have made it," Mr Pearce said. "Mr Hinton has not yet conceded the election and the declaration of the poll is not until next week, after all votes have been counted and preferences allocated. "I thank the people of Broadsound for their support and pledge to help everyone, regardless of their political affiliations." Mr Pearce said he preferred not to make any further statement at this stage until he was confirmed as the Member for Broadsound.

On Wednesday afternoon he left for Brisbane for a caucus meeting. During the campaign Mr Pearce said: • Yeppoon would have a 24-hour a day police service once Wayne Goss became Premier; • he had a commitment from Wayne Goss that the debt on the CCTO Information Centre would be cleared; • a first priority would be to prevent sandmining in the Byfield area and to extend the national park. He said his 'pet project' is a northern link road, linking Yeppoon with the Bruce Highway, north of Rockhampton. Mr Pearce said his wife, Dianne, and three sons would move to the Capricorn Coast as soon as possible.

INDEPENDENT Broadsound candidate Pat O'Brien was pleased with the total of his vote from Saturday's election. "We dropped quite a few votes to Labor, but with the State-wide swing to the ALP it was to be expected," Mr O'Brien said. "Considering everything, we are very pleased. Our primary vote, before postal votes and absentees, was 7.36 per cent and I expect that to go a little higher. But of course it is the primary vote that counts. "I thank my support group, the voters and of course, the people who helped financially ... without them all, we wouldn't have had a chance. "My wife, Ann, has worked steadily by my side, filling in where I couldn't be, and I thank her," he said. "Whatever the result, and it appears likely that Jim Pearce will be the new Member for Broadsound, I commend present Member Denis Hinton for his work on environmental issues. "Denis has worked successfully with conser-

vationists on environmental issues. I thank him for his support on these during the past three years. "If it wasn't for Denis we would not have stage one of Byfield National Park nor would we have the three environmental parks south of Corio Bay." Mr O'Brien said he was looking forward to what the conservation movement would be able to accomplish in the future. "We will be watching Jim Pearce and the new Labor Government very closely. Our future has to be cared for now, and we will make sure that future is clean and environmentally sound:*

LIBERAL candidate for Broadsound Howard Rodda said he enjoyed the campaign and was not depressed by Saturday's result. "I met so many interesting people. I'm not depressed, I'm encouraged by the support we received from the Broadsound electorate after our short campaign," Mr Rodda said. "We lacked finance and because the branch had only just started we had only a few, but very willing, organisers and assistants. "I thank our workers and supporters, in particular the people who manned the polling booths on Saturday, and to all those who helped launch the Liberal Party in the electorate. "Overall, the response to the Liberal Party was encouraging. It was unfortunate that with the huge swing against the National Party in Brisbane and Gold Coast areas that the Liberal Party was caught up in it. "People will now realise we are not part of the National Party ... we stand alone. We are a party in our own right and the electors of Queensland will see a strong Liberal Party at the next election," he said. "After a redistribution of boundaries the Liberal Party will emerge as the senior conservative party in government as is the case in every other State in Australia and also the Federal arena. "I wish Jim Pearce good luck. I said during the election that anyone who followed Denis Hinton had a hard act to follow. I don't know of any local member who has done more for his electorate in the brief time Denis held Broadsound. "Thanks again. Happy Christmas and a peaceful and prosperous New Year to all."

Cluster meeting ' REPRESENTATIVES from almost all Capricorn Coast State schools met on Saturday for a School-Community Cluster meeting. Principals and parents heard about the recent Central Region meeting when parents and teachers from the region discussed common issues of concern. The Capricorn Coast Cluster group decided there was a need for the group to meet on a regular basis to bring about action to solve some of the schools' concerns.

P HINTON DISAPPOINTED BUT NOT BITTERAT ELECTED RESULT MEMBER for Broadsound Denis Hinton is disappointed but not bitter about the possibility of his defeat at the State election held on Saturday. "It appears when counting is finished I will be defeated, but I am not yet prepared to concede defeat until the last preference is counted as the result could be close," Mr Hinton said. "Broadsound will remain the same as when I started ... one of the most marginal and difficult seats in the State. "I congratulate the Labor team of Jim Pearce, Ross Dickson and (Member for Capricornia) Keith Wright on their efforts, as well as Green/Labor candidate Pat O'Brien.

"While Mr O'Brien only received about 7.3 per cent of the vote he clearly decided the issue, with his exchange of preferences with Labor and his indication to environmentally conscious voters that they should vote Labor. "Considering the size of the swing to Labor of up to 30 per cent in some seats, I have done well to keep the swing against me down to apparently as low as any sitting National Party or Liberal Member," he said. "I still have an outside chance if absentee votes were to heavily favour me. In Saturday's political climate where voters, mainly young, voted for Wayne Goss and change, regardless of anything else, it is unlikely this will happen.

When the Member falls he's not the only one to lose his job •••

WHEN a member loses his seat at an election, he isn't the only one out of a job. Eunice Coombes has been Denis Hinton's Broadsound electorate secretary for three years, since he was elected in 1986. Mr Hinton wasn't Mrs Coombes first political boss. She also worked for previous member Lindsay Hartwig for five years. "I spent some time in a real estate office, 12 months with James Bubb and Co and at Livingstone Shire Council for three years in between

CEC could not compete with the parties' money CITIZENS' Electoral Council candidate Les White said his result in Saturday's election was about what he expected. "You can't expect to receive many voteswhen people don't know much about you or the policies you stand for," Mr White said. "I thank my workers and supporters for their help. We couldn't compete with the amount of money that was thrown around by the major parties. "Because of the big swing to Labor none of the independents polled well. The ALP got in with the young vote," he said. "We'll have another go in three years' time. That gives us time to be better prepared. "We would like everyone who voted for us to come along and tell us what they want. We are, in recess now until the new year, but will advertise our first meeting for 1990 sometime at the end of January."

working for Mr Hartwig and Mr Hinton," she said. "Being an electorate secretary is enjoyable. It's varied, interesting and lots of hard work, but I enjoy that. "The job was easier because of the experience I gained over the years. I know a lot of people here on the Coast through working in different organisations. "Mr Hinton was wonderful to work for ... he is a thorough gentleman." An electorate secretary does everything from making a cup of tea to liaising with ministers and their departments, interviewing the public and attending to their needs when the member is unavailable. "You file, write letters to ministers for constituents and issue press releases ... it's a real girl Friday position. "The people contact is great and I really enjoyed it," she said. "You have to be a self-starter and completely motivated ... it's almost like working for yourself. You have to be able to hold a confidence ... that is the most important thing. "You have access to people's private affairs and, in my case, I'm lucky in having the capacity to forget those sorts of details. I don't think I even took in the information when I received it. "I think I have been able to be helpful." MrsCoombeswas due to go on annual leave this month. "I'll continue with my plans and visit my family and then will start looking for a job at the end of January."

"I campaigned on my record of achievement in Broadsound of which I am very proud, but with only a previous majority of 1.8 per cent it was virtually impossible to win. "If I lose, as seems likely, then it was lost in the mining towns where a new S130 million underground coal mine at Middlemount started. Expansion operations at Dysart have attracted a larger and constantly changing population of miners. "Nearly a third of the electorate is in the mining towns," Mr Hinton said. "The decision of Pat O'Brien to direct green preferences to Labor was the last straw, despite my efforts for conservation for which I worked so hard. I do lose the election, Ros and I plan an extensive holiday. I have business interests in Biloela and Brisbane to attend to. These interests have received scant attention over the past three years. "Whatever the outcome, our home will be the Coast, which we have grown to love. This will be easier for my wife, whose family responsibilities during the past three years have been very demanding. Her dual role as mother and political wife was yery exhausting.

• • • • •

• • • • • • •

"I thank the electors for the honour and privilege of representing them in the Parliament I love and for the support I received. "There is little I would have done differently," he said. "On my previous experience, the outcome of the poll should be known by about next Wednesday."

`Security' the key-word for this Christmas season Sgt Tanzer SECURITY is the key-word for Christmas Yeppoon Police officer-in-charge Sgt lc Ken Tanzer said this week. "Security in all things ... your homes, businesses, possessions and stock," Sgt Tanzer said. "Some people look on Christmas as the time for taking ... not giving and we have to learn to be aware of that. "What is the use of saving all year for a holiday and Christmas presents and then find on your return your possessions have been stolen?" he said. "If you are going away let a neighbour or friend know. Tell us." Sgt Tanzer said it was important for residents going on holiday to let someone know where they could be contacted. "If your house or business is burgled, if there is a fire or a cyclone, you need to know. "We have a holiday book in which we put your name, residential or business address, how long you will be away and where you can be contacted in case of emergency," he said. "It is also a good idea to let us know who will have access to your home or business while you are away." Sgt Tanzer said it was a good idea to have possessions vibro-engraved. "We are still showing people how to engrave their possessions with the vibro-engraver we have here at the station. We are delighted to help.

Youth holiday programme CAPRICORN Challenge in conjunction with the Queensland Recreation Council is holding ayouth holiday programme at the QRC Cooee Bay camp. The programme starts on Tuesday, December 12 at 10am and runs each Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday for two weeks. It is has been prepared for people aged between 15 and 21 years. The main feature of the programme is fun. Skateboarders, surfers, gymnasts, musicians, drama students and circus performers are invited to attend. Participation is free and activities include canoeing, abseiling, ropes course, skateboarding, sports and discussing video creation. Numbers are needed in advance, Please phone Coast Youth Hotline, 22 2111 or call at Whites Travel, Yeppoon to register. Transport along the Coast can be arranged, but you have to let the hotline know. The programme will only run if enough young people inquire before 6pm on Monday, December 11.

POWER CUTS CAPRICORNIA Electricity notifies the following possible interruptions to power supply. Wednesday, December 13, 10am to 2pm. All consumers on Emu Park-Rockhampton Road' from Coowonga Road to Tungamull, Racefair subdivision, Tungamull/Cawarral Road, Fryers Road . and Cawarral School SWER scheme and Dodson Lane SWER. Thursday, December 14, 9am to 1pm. All consumers on Farnborough Road between Ocean Circle and Todd Avenue including Ocean Circle, Meikleville Hill and Todd Avenue. Friday, December 15, 10am to 2pm. All consumers on Emu Park-Rockhampton Road between Hartley Street and Tanby Road, Mann's Road and Henry Street.

"In the long run, it helps you have your belongings returned if your home is burgled. "Come along and we will show you how to use the vibro-engraver. You can take it home and engrave anything that can be removed from your premises." He said everyone should make their homes and businesses secure whether going on holidays or not. "If you get into the habit of locking up when you go out for a little while, it won't be such a burden when you go away ... it will become a habit." Sgt Tanzer said if parents were buying their children bicycles for Christmas it would be a good idea to have them vibro-engraved before Christmas Day. "It means that if your children have their bikes stolen during the holiday break, we at least have a description and a better chance of returning them. "Don't just buy your child a bike, also buy a helmet ... and that can be engraved too," he said. Shoplifting increases during holiday time and Sgt Tanzer said shopkeepers shoi,ld be aware. "I know it is hard to be on the look-out for shoplifters when you are busy, but what is IN use of a good Christmas season if you lose stock to shoplifters," he said. "Try to keep smaller type items in view of you or your staff. Be aware of people who finger. goods and try to stay out of your sight. "Of course, you can't treat every customer as a potential shoplifter, but you can be aware."

Copan** Caaattiite THE Coastal Gardeners met on November 21 and enjoyed a tour of the Woods' property, Woodbury. There are two homes on the property and the separate gardens are joined by a large plantation of trees ... native and introduced. Mrs Woods senior and Alan and Kay Woods took time from their busy schedules to show their guests around and discuss the joys and difficulties of caring for a large area in conjunction with running a pineapple farm. The top garden and the specimen trees were the special pride of the Alan Woods' family ... ponds, walkways, bridges, large wooden bird feeders (made by Alan) and vigorous growth attested to their continuous care and work. The lower garden has been arranged with garden weddings in mind ... bush chapel, pools with splashing fountains, unexpected vistas and a riot of colour and scent. The gardeners thank the Woods' families for allowing them to see such a lovely garden. Next meeting is a tour of Rockhampton Botanic Garden, Tuesday, December 12. Tom Wyatt has arranged the tour and everyone is to meet outside his office in the old garden at 2pm. Need transport? Carol Ziebell, 39 3357. *** SUNDAY, December 10 is the first of the Coast's Carols by Candlelight ... in Bell Park • from 730pm. Take a chair, blanket or soft pillow and candles.

THE well attended Keppel Bay Shell Club November meeting had some beautiful displays of shells to view as the shirtbox displays were the Volute family of shells. Glen Munro's display of colourful Thorny Oysters created interest. South Australian member Peg Wilkin donated a box of shells for the clubhouse restoration fund. Key Logan from Coral Life Marine Park at Kinka Beach gave a talk on marine life exhibiting in preparation for the 1990 Shell Show when local members will exhibit living shells and marine life. Lucky new member for the month was Wendy Shields of Kinka Beach. Competition winner was Judith Kipp of Rockhampton. The Christmas barbecue on Saturday, December 16 will be the club's last get-together for 1989. *** PAM Harmer thanks everyone who supported her in the QCWA Country Woman of the Year, especially the business people and service clubs who assisted in the fund-raising and in particular her sponsors Kristin's Hair Designs and Hedi's Boutique of Savemore.

Bayview Tower has new owner, new managers; set to become focus of region has a new owner and BAYVIEW TO new managers and is being prepared to be the "focal point of Central Queensland". New managers Peter and Anna Aronis said this was the task they had been set by new owner Chris Dadson, "a Londoner who owns a resort in Cornwall, one of the largest holiday complexes in southern England". Mr Dadson was so impressed with the region when he visited three months ago that he signed up to buy not just one hotel but also a second. George Callianiotis brought him to Central Queensland to have a look at the Cambridge Hotel in Rockhampton ... and he bought it. He was then shown Bayview Tower and, in the words of Peter Aronis, "fell in love with the view and the motel and bought it on the spot". "He was fascinated with the beauty of the area," Mr Aronis said. "He asked us if we would manage the Bayview and told us he wanted to make it the focal point of Central Queensland." To achieve this, he intends making the Sails Restaurant a "first-class dining establishment" and he has big plans for the 63 accommodation units. These plans include approaching Livingstone Shire Council to strata-title the accommodation units. If the application to council is successful, there will be 63 shareholders and each one will be expected to sign a leaseback agreement, and the motel will carry on exactly in the same style as at present. "Instead of Mr Dadson totally carrying the bill, 63 shareholders, possibly from all over Australia, will be heldping to Market the Bayview," Mr Aronis said. Mr Aronis said he did not know how much had been paid for Bayview Tower but the asking price was "around S4 million". He believes that whatever was paid was good value because of the infrastructure in place on the Capricorn Coast ... "the area is ready to move," he said. Mr and Mrs Aronis were still getting to know the hotel and the 17 staff early this week but expect things to move fairly fast in the near future. They have worked in the food industry for the past 23-24 years, mainly in Brisbane, and are looking forward to their future at Bayview. "We'll be on the job around the clock seven days a week but no matter how hectic it gets, there will always be that view out the front of the motel," Mr Aronis said.

Daylight saving OK with market YEPPOON Charity Market committee is pleased with daylight saving. At a recent meeting members expressed their pleasure that daylight saving allowed the market to maintain the 7am start time all year. A market representative told the meeting that the showground is rented each week from 6.30am and asked that customers abide by the selling start time of 7am. "We appeal to stallholders not to sell items before that time," a market spokesman said. "We must fulfill our terms of agreement with the show society and must not create a nuisance for residents living around the showground. "The market is of value to many people: stallholders as a venue for the sale of produce and craftwork; customers as a source of fresh produce and a place to buy other items; and to the many organisations that benefit from donations. "These organisations pass on those benefits' to people who are in need and also to the community as a whole." The committee thanked the stallholders and customers for their support.

Recreation Youth group's plea PRIMARY school children and adults are needed for the Yeppoon Recreation Youth Club. The club offers basic recreation gymnastics, not competition, just the basics. "There is no pressure to compete. We offer primary school age children the chance to learn basic gymnastics," club secretary Pauline Rice said. "We start our year on Tuesday, February 6, 1990, but thought we would get in early so parents could let us know if their children are interested. "Next year we have a qualified trampoline coach to teach the children." Mrs Rice said the club needed an idea of how many children would be interested in joining next year. "We have to make sure there are enough instructors so the children can be adequately cared for. "Of course, we always need instructors and welcome anyone who has had any gymnastic training at all to offer their services," she said. "We offer a nominal fee to instructors to cover their costs, but otherwise it is a volunteer effort. No-one is paid. "Don't sit at home wondering what you can do. Give me a ring, 39 3252, we would be

delighted to give any information needed tc help you make up your mind." The club meets on Tuesdays from 6.30pm to 8pm in the Recreation Youth Club hall, Queen Street, Yeppoon, next to the kindergarten. "Of course, if enough children are interested and the hall is available we can change those times and day. "The club has been in existence for nearly 20 years and is incorporated ... all we need is to find out how many children want to start with us again next year." Anyone interested in having their children join, please phone 39 3252.

ALP win shows no , gerrymander in Old THE Labor Party has been wailing for years about the 'gerrymander' which kept the Nationals in power for 32 years unbeatable.

12 Great Days in the Red Centre and Outback

• ABOVE: Budget Nursery, off Emu Park/ Rockhampton Road, is as the name implies - budget - with prices to suit your pocket. Dot Burrough's increased her greenhouse and that means more bargains and plants.

Do you know... DO you know that Iced Peppermint Tea is a great "pick-me-up" tonic in hot weather? Lemon Balm calms hyperactive kids? Penny Royal repels mosquitoes and fleas? Aloe Vera soothes sunburn and bites? Menthol Mint relieves hayfever and sinus? Yvonne Saint Martin has all of these available and much, much more, locally grown, acclimatised for Central Queensland conditions and lots more information on growing and using your herbs.

Why not call in at the Bay Vacationer, in Anzac Parade, Yeppoon and make a booking with Peter or Yvonne Motton? Phone 39 1213. There's no better way of spending your holiday on the Capricorn Coast than right in town with the beach directly over the road and views, day and night, over Keppel Bay to Great Keppel Island.

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 yourfamily to Great Keppel for a great day. Instead, spend $20 for a 20point service safety check and get a written report onyour 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.

Budget, Beachfront S/C Units, Zilzie HOW does $20 double overnight sound for beachfront units on the Zilzie beachfront? It's top value for a clean, fully self-contained unit in a quiet, tropical garden location on the beach. Ask about group or family rates. Phone 39 6223 or look for the Pottery sign, 26 Esplanade, Zilzie.

HOW would you like a holiday that starts with a taxi picking you up at your front door at no extra cost? That's the way the Sunliner 12 Great Days in the Red Centre and Outback Queensland tour starts. Tour price includes a taxi to Young's Bus Depot, coach to Rockhampton, coach to Brisbane ... then the 12 days start! The tours leave on January 10, February 10, March 15, April 15, May 15, June 15, July 15, August 15, September 1 and October 20 ... you must have a couple of weeks free near one of those dates! The highlights are three nights inAlice Springs, Bushman's night in Alice (damper, native fruits, Aboriginal medicine plants, genuine hunting boomerangs and spears). There's a campfire setting, barbecue dinner, picnic lunch at the Alice Telegraph Station, Crocodile Dundee Pub, Ayers Rock and sunset, Longreach Stockman's

Christmas Gifts available at Castro's TIRED of tinsel? Sick of stockings? Worn out with wrapping? Why not have a look at a different range of Christmas gifts available now at Castro's BYO Cafe and Bistro (39 3666). Tracy Hansen has put together a range of gifts that will put some zing into Christmas ... Mintie Wreaths, Whisky Figs, Brandy Prunes, Marsala Apricots, Whole Seed Mustard, Oils and Vinegar, White Christmas and Rumballs. They knock the socks off the usual gifts and are sure to delightt everyone on Christmas Day. Have a look at the range while enjoying a plunger pot of coffee made the way you like it. Incidently, so many people have been asking Tracy to open seven days a week she's given in and now open Mondays and Tuesdays as well as the rest of the week ... but only for lunches on Mondays and Tuesdays. She has to spend some time gathering the ingredients. So, Castro's is now open from 10am to 3pm on Monday and Tuesdays and the usual late hours on the other five days.

Hall of Fame; Mt Isa, Broken Hill, Coober Pedy and opals and Travel Bag ... an unreal combination for a holiday. You get a free Sunliner Express connections to brisbane included in the $999 fare (children $699.99 and single supplement $190). The fare includes most meals so you're not hitting the pocket all the time and you're seeing the real Australia! For full details go and talk to John or Tony at Yeppoon Travel Agency in the Savemore Centre, phone 39 1044. They're your IATA and AFTA travel agents on the Capricorn Coast and that means a lot. Talk to them about the Red Centre and Outback, give them the date you want to leave and they'll take care of the details. It's that simple. By the way, with those free connections to brisbane you can leave earlier than necessary and have a few days off in Brisbane. How's that for a holiday?

Here's a gift for that proverbial person... JOHN BRETZ, the Murph at Murph's Sign 'n Sound in Savemore has a Christmas Gift idea for the man or woman who has everything ... except this gift. It's a combination calculator, phone diary, calendar, memo pad and appointment scheduler ... and it's electronic. It fits into anyone's top pocket or purse, weighs next to nothing, can tell you the date from 1901 to 2099 (great for working out the day you were born or when your birthday will fall when you are 65 and can call it quits at work) and even has "secret" sections where you can record information noone else can find without the password. Look, this is one of those items that has to be seen to be believed. It probably took some genius •half a lifetime to create and it's worth considering as a gift (tell your kids to read this and have $199 handy when they call in). Accountants, Bank Johnnies (Jeannies?), Real estate Agents, Punters, forgetful husbands (wives never forget!), Tradesmen (and women, let's be fair) ... anyone for that matter, can use this gift

I AM a student of Byfield State School. We would like a bike tack along the Byfield Road from the crossing to Haines turn-off. There have been many injuries happening to people, including me. When I was riding on the side of the road, I came to a hill when a rock slipped under my wheel, so I fell off. When I got home, I noticed a sore under my arm. When cars and trucks go past, rocks fly up. People who ride bikes are hoping for a bike track. - Michelle A Purvis, MS142, Byfield.

He was Central Queensland 16 year champion in 1985/86. He moved to Brisbane and attended the School of Excellence to further his tennis and complete years 11 and 12 ... with tennis as a subject. After graduation Darren returned to Yeppoon and took up coachingwith the Bevan Mulholland School of Tennis. "He has done an excellent job coaching young junior players," Mr Mulholland said. "Rachel also has a fine record as a tennis player and as a friend to all her fellow players." She was the number one girl player in the Central Queensland from under 10 to under 16. "This is a feat on its own," he said. "Rachel is one of Rockhampton's best open women's players and was recently selected to represent Queensland in the interstate clash in New South Wales." Mr Mulholland said the Coast junior players wish Darren and Rachel all the best for the future. "We thank them for their contribution to tennis on the Capricorn Coast."

Mick Barsby took four for 29 from 15 overs, Steve Christie was 1/32 from eight, Tony Ellison scored none for 26 from seven and Peter Huxtable took two for 37 from nine overs. Peter Huxtable took a good catch and bowled to dismiss a batsman who had settled in comfortably, scoring 45 runs. Coast easily scored the required runs with Ken Dunning 11 not out and Jeff Huxtable nine not out. Mick Barsby won the man-of-the-match, donated by Carpet and Vinyl Services, Yeppoon. Last week there was an error in the third grade write-up. It should have read: "Matthew Williams bowled economically, conceding only eight runs from five overs and also collected two run outs."

HAVE you met anyone yet who actually admits they voted Labor? Funny how Labor won, no-one seems to have voted for them! ••• IT was the same in 1972 when Whitlam won ... no-one voted for him, either, at least, no-one who normally voted Liberal or National!!! ••• ELECTION nights are great times for curling up on the lounge with a bag of Minties, a block of chocolate and the ABC's TV coverage ... but not last Saturday night. Last Saturday night the ABC seemed to forget that Queensland is Australia's most decentralised State ... all they covered was a select few seats in the south-east corner. The coverage was boring. The commentators kept saying the same things over and over again. "Old Baldy," who only listens to the ABC radio and mostly watches ABC TV (unless the kids stick a bit of paper over the hole in front of that video clicking thing) gave up on the coverage and went over to Seven ... and struck an interview with Martin Tenni who used to be something or other in the previous government. Tenni remarked that anyone who voted Labor was actually voting Communist then was joined by Sir Joh and the two of them muttered away about how tough things were in their old party. In desperation, "OB" went back to the ABC and was told, for the umpteenth time, that it was "an historic night", that December 2 was the same date that Whitlam came to power, that Labor had at least 15 seats majority ... and never once, not once, learned how the vote went in Callide, Rockhampton, North Rockhampton or Peak Downs (he already knew about Broadsound because he'd been at the courthouse until 8pm for the final figures). So, rather than go back to Tenni and Joh he rang Information, took down the ABC's Toowong studio number and phoned in a complaint. Before he'd started, the sweetest, best-trained telephonist in Australia agreed with him. She told him she'd had heaps of calls from rural Queensland and that a call of the board would take place at 10.30pm. She was so good at her job she knocked the wind out of his sails (he reckoned it was like trying to argue with Suzy). So, tail between his legs, he popped another Mintie and waited!!! ••• ANYWAY, the call of the board was held, as promised, and "OB" couldn't read the computer-generated information. At one stage, mercifully, the computer went down and they had to cross to the good old black and white boards ... and that was the only time he found out what was happening. He reckons he must be getting old. By the way, did you notice that the whoopee-poo computer information neglected to carry the number of people on the roll in each seat? A disappointing night from the TV point of view!!! ••• MEMO to Mr Goss ... surely, after all the research that went into Labor's victory, after all the careful choice of words and pictures, couldn't you have found some other expression than "the ordinary people" to describe us in your victory speech? Politicians who like to refer to "the little people" have short careers ... "ordinary people" must rank number two to that expression. What's wrong with "people", or, as Whitlam used to say, "Men and Women of Australia". Still, Mr Goss gets a honeymoon from the media as does any new politician ... but "ordinary people"? Frankly, the Queenslanders who swung 180 degrees to vote Labor are far from ordinary ... they overcame a gerrymander that was anything but "ordinary"!
