Kingaroy Show Ball Cabaret

By Craig Lucas The traditional ‘curtain raiser’ of the Kingaroy Show, the Annual Show Ball, will be held next Friday at the Kingaroy Town Hall, with organisers predicting a bigger turnout than last year. The evening, which kicks off at 8 pm sharp, will be compared by local Crow FM personality "Kratzie", and the dance card has been carefully constructed to appeal to all ages. The 2009 Show Ball will include Jive, Old Time, New Vogue and Rock ‘n Roll music, to keep the Town Hall bopping. Also this year there will be a "Limbo Rock Competition" for any age to participate in. This year the popular Warwick dance band "Triple Beat" will provide live music through out the evening. The Kingaroy Show Society would sincerely like to thank the Hotel Holiday for their generous donation of accommodation costs towards the 2009 Show Ball's band "Triple Beat". The Kingaroy Show Society is proud to have four Miss Show Girl entrants for 2009. They are, Miss Brigitta Seiler, Miss Amber Pogany, Miss Alyssa Chesterton and Miss Kylee Clewley. The foursome will then be presented for the final time in front of the viewing public while the judges make their final decision to select the Miss Show Girl RunnerUp and the Kingaroy Miss Show Girl for 2009! Tickets for the Ball are $20 for Adults and $15 for High-School students and they may be purchased at Argue & Co Real Estate. Alternatively, tickets are available at the front door.

Commissioner warns on tax tricks of the wine trade Wine producers and grape growers making use of two ‘grey-area’ schemes to minimise their Wine Equalisation Tax (WET) or to claim a WET producer rebate are being urged to fess up and reduce the Tax Office penalties that will otherwise apply. Tax Commissioner Michael D’Ascenzo last week warned the wine industry the Tax Office was wise to at least two schemes designed to benefit growers and producers in the wine industry. One of the techniques is for winemakers to sell their wine below value to a go-between marketer who then goes on to sell the wine through its retail outlets, but is in fact acting as an agent for the marketer. The other involves wine grape growers claiming WET producer rebates normally only available to wine producers by entering into a contract with a winemaker to make wine from their grapes. Industry members unsure about their WET obligations can seek independent advice, or request a private ruling from the Tax Office. Taxpayers who have entered into such an arrangement who disclose their involvement to the Tax Office before they are contacted for an audit will be entitled to a reduction in any penalties that may apply.

Youngman/Avoca traffic light cash splash It’s taken its time, but at last the $650,000 in Black Spot funding has come through to install traffic lights at the intersection of Youngman Street and Avoca Street in Kingaroy. Bruce Scott, the Federal member for Maranoa, a seat that includes the peanut capital, made the announcement, saying the upgrade would deal with a troublespot in the town. "This funding will allow the intersection to be upgraded to include

traffic lights with a pedestrian signal, contributing to the safety of those driving or walking across the two busy roads," Mr Scott said. Mr Scott encouraged local motorists to be patient and slow down around road works. "In order for the road to be improved, time must be taken to construct the traffic lights and I encourage motorists to be mindful of road works," he said.

Local teachers rally on wage discrepancy

A Queensland Teachers Union rally in Gympie last week, attended by teachers from the South Burnett, heard that Queensland teachers are earning $7000 less those south of the border. The meeting gave teachers from Kilkivan and Blackbutt insight into the discrepancy, which sees a teacher on the Gold Coast paid $7000 less than those a few kilometres south in Tweed Heads. With vice-president of the Queensland Teadchers Union, Julie Brown, in attendance, the teachers heard that the QTU has hard numbers showing the pay difference is causing teachers to migrate south in pursuit of equity. “We want to stem the flow of Queensland teachers to other states,” she said. The Gympie turnout was typical of attendances at similar meetings across the state. “Our members want pay justice,” she added. Her union is in a tussle with the Bligh government currently on new pay agreements, with improved conditions for temporary teachers also up for discussion.

$4.2 million raised for Kingaroy project

Six cents doesn’t sound much, but it’s amazing how they add up. Cougar Energy’s share placement on the Australian Stock Exchange has resulted in 70 million little 6 cent shares being sold, raising a total of $4.2 million which will be used to drive forward the company’s Underground Goal Gasification project near Kingaroy. The dollars will primarily be pumped into the construction of the UCG Pilot Plant facility due to fire up later this year as a precursor to the 400MW full-scale power generator. Funds will also go to developing Cougar’s Wandoan coal lease, which may well be the location of a follow-up to the Kingaroy power plant.

Endangered Tree Closes Tessmans Road North A clump of an endangered tree species is to be protected in the shortterm by a temporary closure of a road reserve known for years as Tessmans Road North on the northern outskirts of Kingaroy. The Phebalium distans species of tree (common name Mt Berryman Phebalium) has been found in recent times at three places, each about 90km apart - Mt Jones Plateau near Kingaroy (about 200 trees), at Mt Berryman and Mt Walla near Coalstoun Lakes in the Biggenden district. Botanists believe the species once spread across much of that region, having been cleared by early settlers to plant crops. South Burnett Regional Council has decided to officially name the road reserve “Tessmans Road (North)” and to make the temporary road reserve closure to undertake rehabilitation work to address erosion, implement storm water control measures and waste and rubbish disposal, and generally work to minimise disturbance to the rare trees. The area, will, however, be opened up to allow bushwalkers to use the reserve for recreation purposes. Locked gates will be placed at each end (1.1km apart) to prevent use of the road reserve by vehicles, with exception of authorised vehicles and those of landholders adjoining the reserve who will be issued with gate keys. Tessmans Road North, once part of an old coach road, had been used by farmers to move machinery around the area. Eventually the road will be developed to connect Taylor Road with the Crawford Booie Road. Botonaists say Mt Berryman Phebalium is found in semi-evergreen vine thicket on red volcanic soils, or in communities adjacent to this vegetation type. Geology of the area in which this species occurs is deeply weathered basalt with undulating to hilly terrain. Soils range from redbrown earths to brown clays (derived from siltstone and mudstones), and lithosols to shallow, gravelly krasnozems (very dark brown loam), de-

rived from the Main Range Volcanics of the Tertiary period . Vegetation associations in which Mt Berryman Phebalium occur include microphyll to notophyll vine forest with or without Araucaria cunninghamii and low microphyll vine forest and semi-evergreen vine thicket with or without Araucaria cunninghamii which can be divided further into regional ecosystems depending on substrate, geography and associated vegetation species. Mt Berryman Phebalium plants become mature at 1m–2 m in height and usually flower in spring. Moderate falls of rain at other times of the year may also trigger opportunistic flowering. The pollination mechanism is unknown. Fruit generally form in late summer and early autumn. The capsular fruit produce small seeds that have limited dispersal ability. The species has not been recorded reproducing vegetatively and medium term monitoring indicates that this species does not readily reproduce under disturbance regimes, and never as a result of fire. The former Kingaroy shire council knew of the endangered tree species 16 years ago when it applied to the then Lands Department to close the 1.2km section of reserve on the recommendation of the former soil conservationist, the late Stuart James, to protect remnant vegetation. The request was refused on the grounds that the area was needed for its dedicated purpose (road) South Burnett councillors have now been told the temporary road closure had been hastened by track damage from storm water running off the nearby and recently developed Summit View housing estate. The track was no longer trafficable due to erosion and washouts of the surface, being now so degraded that it was unsafe for use by public vehicles and if an accident happened on it then council might be legally responsible as the road reserve came under its administration. David Carter, region mayor, referring to the recommended temporary

Flower of the endangered Queensland species of Phebalium found near Kingaroy road closure, said what track remedial work council did on the washed out track would not affect the endangered trees. “It will be a temporary closure for remedial work to be done on the washed-out track, to give council time to plan the future of the road reserve and of the protection needed by the endangered trees”. He said council, in making the temporary road closure, had a major liability for the safety of people using roads under its administration and Tessmanns Road North, as a result, had to be closed to unauthorised vehicles while repairs were made. “Many studies have been done into the area – by Landcare, the environment section of the former Kingaroy shire council – and many discussions have been held with affected landholders, and now SBRC staff members have brought the matter before us as one of some urgency because stormwater run-off from the nearby housing estate has made the situation much worse”. . He said road reserve remedial work and endangered tree protection work could be a “costly exercise” for council Cr Carter said council had much work to do on the area and the temporary road closure to protect people’s safety and take reserve remedial work was the first step, one he considered a “reasonable and satisfactory” outcome. Council will advise emergency services and government departments of its intention to temporarily close Tessmanns Road North.

South Burnett Regional Council is delighted with the confirmation this week of $1.286 million in funding from the Federal Government’s Regional and Local Community Infrastructure Program (RLCIP) for several important locak infrastructure projects. Mayor David Carter said nine readyto-go community infrastructure projects have been approved for immediate start and he hoped these funds would help support local jobs and boost the local economy. “Without this funding many of these projects would have been impossible for us to achieve,” Cr Carter said. “I am very pleased these projects will generate construction activity and support local jobs. The projects must be finished by September, so we will have to get stuck in and complete these projects within that time frame,” he said. “A number of these projects fit with our Healthy Community Project with which I am heavily involved and very proud of. Providing concrete foot and bicycle paths, playground equipment and outdoor exercise equipment in various communities will encourage our residents to be active and healthy.” “The projects also meet the objectives of our much used slogan Live, Work and Play in the great South Burnett Region,” said Cr Carter. The Regional and Local Community Infrastructure Program is aimed at stimulating local economies and helping communities respond to the global recession.

With James McSweeny from Blackbutt 3


When I was young I collected chocolate wrappers. I also collected silver paper. Not only the silver paper used to wrap chocolates as tight as mummies. But also the sort found beneath the lids of Milo tins and powdered milk containers, what you would call sealed-for-freshness silver. Collecting chocolate wrappers was something I did for the collectophilia part of my soul. I also collected stamps and rocks in much the same spirit. The silver paper I collected because I had visions of creating a giant solar dish. I had visions of the giant solar dish, but nothing more practical than that. For all I knew it could have been a dish to heat sausages or to blind with sunlight the eyes of a pilot of a flying saucer taking a short cut under the moon. While I have abandoned in my adult years collecting particular things, I have replaced this with a much broader practice: collecting everything. I look around at my world goods, and the phrase “you can’t take it with you” most certainly applies to me. If I were to have to take things with

me to the afterlife, I would need several B-doubles. The Spanish lady is remarkable in that she does not collect things. Her worldly goods are regularly renewed. She is even desperately short of photographs of earlier eras of her life. But she does like to collect one thing: milestones. And, like a boy with his Weetbix card, after a few minutes of enjoying one milestones, she will be wishing the Weetbix packet was empty so she can start collecting the next milestone. For example, the Spanish lady’s daughter had barely turned 14...I mean it was only a couple of weeks ago...and I’ve already heard her say, “soon, she will be 15...” Well, soon, the global financial crisis will be over, too, but let’s not start counting the days when it’s barely started... that’s my view anyway! We found ourselves debating the other day the question of what is “mid forties”. Are the Spanish lady and I in our mid-forties or not? It came about, of course, from her keenness to collect another milestone: the mark of being in her “late forties”. Never before has a woman been keen to age as much as this one. She, who is usually as fit as a fiddle, except only considerably less wooden than a fiddle, has occasionally been known to refer to herself as “an old lady”. But it was a remarkable contemplation: what constitutes “mid forties”. Do we try and pack as many of the older years as possible into the “mid”, leaving out, say, 40, 41, 42, 43 and 44, so that we can stay in our “early forties” longer? So shall we make “mid forties” 45, 46, 47 and 48...and just leave 49 to the “late forties”? The Spanish lady, interestingly, argued that “40” cannot be “early 40s” as it is just...forty. And 50 cannot be “late forties” either. So if we divide the years equally, 41, 42 and 43 are “early forties”, 44, 45 and 46 are mid forties, and 47, 48 and 49 are late forties. Somehow, when you are in your forties, that doesn’t quite ring true... Of course, some of the linguistic disputes the Spanish lady and I have are less theoretical, so to speak. I was trying to explain to her last night about a concert we had been invited to. “You know,” I said, “it’s like the thing you sometimes see on ABC, the Last Night of the Proms.” This didn’t ring a bell, and she looked extremely puzzled. In retrospect, I’m surprised she didn’t break into gales of laughter. It didn’t ring a bell to me, either, that what she had understood, the vowels in Spanish being a hell of a lot more black and white than in English, was “the last night of the prawns”. I guess it puts a whole different perspective on a seafood barbecue. Olav Muurlink Editor

100th Nanango Show draws huge crowd James Barclay

hammer on an anvil, shaped out a perfect horse shoe that any hack would be proud to wear, while just a stroll away, others stopped to watch a horse drawn chaff cutting demo that took us back when steam engines were not around. To keep the littlies happy, the Gilmore family circus was the centre of attention as one act after another, kept the crowd laughing and clapping. Not far away was sideshow alley full of rides, jumping castles, lucky throws, lucky dips and fast food. Down on the main arena however, the horse events were in full swing. On this hot steamy day when even the birds refused to fly from the hot bite of the sun’s rays, these sleek, well tuned beasts of burden were put through their paces by their proud riders. While awards flowed like water over smooth rocks, horses and riders in half gallop ran around a set course jumping over meter plus high hurdles. After numerous speeches and the official opening of the Show by the Federal member for Maranoa Bruce Scott, the Grand Parade began with Utes, vintage cars, tractors, cattle and horses. Supreme Exhibit and Beef of the Show went to the Hayward family of Allora and the Supreme Champion Cow award went to the Gill family of Pittsworth. Just after the fireworks all hell broke lose as lighting and heavy rain slammed into the town cutting mains power for nearly 5 hours. As showgoers ran for cover and to their cars, storm water flowed like mini rivers on anything not level. But the show went on, as hundreds of cars turned on their headlights to illuminate the events. No storm was going to stop this show. Earlier that day show president Les Schloss said without the support of local business houses for sponsorships and awards, the show society’s pool of volunteers, workers and the exhibitors, the 100th anniversary of the Nanango Agricultural, Pastorial and Mining Society Show would not have been so successful. Well done Nanango!

Close to 5000 visitors attended the 100th Nanango Show recently, and were witness to a country extravaganza that had something for everyone. As the morning dawned under a grey sky, visitors began streaming in to celebrate the town’s century of shows. From woodchopping to chain saw carving demos, a rodeo and a boxing tent where anyone who wanted to go toe to toe with another, it was on for young and old. As the day wore on, amidst the yelling of encouragement from the excited crowd within, the skies outside were being lit up by a nasty storm brewing in the west. Meanwhile, by 8am cattle and horse judging was under way with a large contingent of prime and stud cattle including Santa Gertrudis, all coming under the critical eye of judges. As one event literally lead into another, cattle of all shapes, sizes, ages and breeds were paraded for all to see. After many judging events took place including awards for Junior and Senior Bull and Female it was time to select the Grand Champion of each with the top award going to a superb Billabong Droughtmaster owned by Stephen Hayward of Allora. Top female award went to a white British breed entrant from the Kingaroy State High School. Over in the Santa Gertrudis ring, they had 45 entries with two taking out the top prize. Grand Champion Bull went to a 19 month old Billabong Redford called ‘Dangerfield Rattler’ – from the Dangerfield Cattle Company at Meandarra, near Dalby, and the Grand Champion Female went to a 22 month old Billabong Droughtmaster called ‘Rosevale Ethel’ belonging to the G.A Greenup company. Over in the Prime Beef ring, the Grand Champion Beast of Show went to J&M Livingstone. Throughout the day many other displays were on show namely goat, poultry, fine art, photography, vegetables, flowers and quilt. Not far away one could hear the regular hammering of steel as a blacksmith showed the public how to make a horse shoe. As the red hot metal was drawn from the furnace, the Smithy and his big

Open rehearsal for connoisseurs and would-be singers alike The South Burnett Chorale is holding an ‘open rehearsal’ later this month, which will provide not just a juicy sampler for jazz fans, but also an opportunity for locals with a taste for the genre to exercise their lungs in the context of choral singing. The quasiconcert will be held at the Taabinga Homestead, where the group’s sponsors have opened up their barn for the concert on the 26th of April. Starting at 2:00pm on Sunday 26 April, the entertainment will take the form of an open rehearsal. The concept,

according to Spokesperson Diane Read is that audience members will have the choice of joining in the rehearsal or of just sitting back and enjoying the music. Dubbed Heaven and Earth and All That Jazz, the production will feature songs of praise interspersed with jazz numbers and Gershwin and Broadway classics. "Like many groups we are always looking to increase membership of both men and women and we think that this open rehearsal will give prospective members an insight

into our learning process and a real chance to find out if choral singing is their cup of tea," Ms Read said. "The invitation to membership is open to everyone and no-one need be daunted by the high standard which has been achieved by the South Burnett Chorale over the last twelve years'" she continued. " We would like people to see that although there are various levels of capability amongst our choristers, it is always the joint effort and never the individual that ensures that final professional sound."

Almost opposite the Ficks Crossing turnoff between Wondai and Murgon there is a road with the peculiar name of "Kangaroo Yard." This opens a window in to an interesting corner of South Burnett history, knowledge of which is fast disappearing as the older generation with local knowledge pass on. It has a unique story, one that has to be recorded, of the days of closer settlement - more than 100 years ago Merv Hansen (pictured) of Wondai is concerned about preserving history such as that behind the unusual name of this road. "Roads are being renamed and local knowledge is fading from the scene" he said. "small changes - like leaving the word 'yard' off the name of the road, which was done at one time by councillors who never knew the importance of the place. Then other small changes occur and the whole context of that piece of history is gone." Merv's grandfather Len, was one of the first farmers issued with a licence to occupy land in 1902 when the Kangaroo Yard area was subdivided and sections of Mondure Station was resumed. Merv showed the Observer five acres (two hectares) of yard, down the ( 5km long) Kangaroo Yard Road which links the Bunya Highway with the WheatlandWondai road just south of the Wheatlands school. The road follows a wing fence line that fed into Kangaroo Yard itself, where, in a large open paddock a couple of old ironbark posts lean and dream. These are all that remain of a colourful era in the South Burnett during the 1890s and early 1900s when kangaroos were in such plague proportions they had to be yarded up and culled to save crops of the new settlers. The roos were living off the farmers to a large extent. The country in the 1800s was choice on the fertile lands of the original Mondure Station, and what the farmers and their animals liked, the kangaroo's liked too. Desperate settlers and their farmhands decided to take drastic steps - to build fence lines along which kangaroos could be driven into a two hectare complex of yards where they could be slaughtered hence the name Kangaroo Yard Road. One of the first jobs was to build the yards; old records describe the yard fence as "very strong", the fenceposts were big, thick ironbark slabs placed side by side and from 10-13feet high. But even then some roos were reported to have escaped by jumping over. The yards crossed several small creeks and the builders suspended swinging timber "floodgates" across them to prevent roo escapes. Within the final enclosure itself there were a series of yards in roughly concentric circles each getting smaller as they approached the centre. According to Merve it would be possible to re-establish where the yards were by grading the area lightly, just below the disturbed surface. The roos would have been herded through

South Burnett Observer

the larger to the smaller yards. "By then they would have been very agitated" Merv said. Farmhands and stationhands built the yards in their own time with their own money, then started on the fences. From the main large yard two wings reached out, each about seventeen miles in length. One wing ran through the Chelmsford Greenview area and finished on the (now) railway line beside the Bunya Highway near Tingoora. The northern wing stretched almost to Mondure. The fence was erected roughly between the scrub line and the forest. Cattle were also rounded up into the Kangaroo Yard to muster. "The fence must have taken a lot of manpower" Merv said. "The men would have dug the fence holes with a crowbar and shovel and lifted the ironbark saplings into the holes." The fence building was not easy work. One man lost his life during the construction. His colleagues buried him alongside the fence in the Greenview area, ( along Jackson's Rd in (now) Steinhardt's paddock) marking the grave with two small fences adjoining the main one. But nothing is left of it now, although the site is marked on the old maps. The workmen then herded the roos, slaughtered them, used what meat they could and sold the skins. It was not an easy job to yard the roos at the end of the drives. The roos were big and healthy and had to be outwitted to be slaughtered. No wonder some jumped the high yard fence to escape. Yarding the kangaroos stopped in the early 1900s when numbers had been reduced to the extent farm crops were no longer threatened. The fence soon began to deteriorate as age, grass fires and cultivation took their toll and settlers used the strong wood from the fence in farm buildings. Merv's records suggest that there was another set of Kangaroo Yards out from Sonelands but the certainly of this information is now lost. Now only a couple of old posts and memories of the descendants of those pioneer farmers remain of a huge volunteer project which helped farmers on closer settlement blocks survive those tough times before World War I - 100 years ago. Because of the fading history of the settler days Merv Hansen is encouraging the regional council to put up markers and plaques at historic and significant sites around the region.

In First Division Nanango started the game at a blistering pace which seemed to unsettle Barambah, the Nanango defence held well with Peter Garrett playing a commanding role. In the 24th minute Michael Gibson put Nanango ahead with a well worked goal with some brilliant build up. The lead lasted only four minutes when the in-form Mitch Kelly found an equalizer and after a hectic first half the teams went to the break a goal apiece. In the second half Barambah introduced Bevan Rattey to their defence and this seemed to give them more confidence to push forward. Nanango were under siege and their attacking forays limited, their best chance coming when Michael Gibson missed a oneon-one chance with the Barambah keeper, Paul

Scott. Barambah continued to pressure Nanango, and in the 54th minute Ahmed Saandelin almost put the home side ahead but narrowly missed. He made no mistake in the 70th minute, however, when he jumped on a through ball, beat a couple of defenders and put his side up 2-1. Daniel Hobday, Mitch Kelly and Luke Miller were stand out for Barambah, while Michael Gibson was Nanango’s best. Barambah coach Alan Eagleson was pleased with his teams performance with the only disappointment being the finishing. The Second Division game was most exciting with Barambah taking an early lead in the 6th minute through Jamie Lane. Barambah continued to mount pressure and Jamie Lane got his second in the 27th minute. The teams went to halftime with Barambah dominating and just after the start of play the scored again through Ron Jensen. To their credit Nanango did

Off and racing

By John Cameron A spirited debate over the role of the South Burnett’s four racing clubs has ended with the Regional Council increasing its club grants by one-third in 2009 to a total $8000. Councillors debated a recommendation that the region’s major race clubs at Nanango and Wondai get half the grants proposed for Kumbia and Burrandowan clubs. Pleas were made by several councillors for the major clubs to be treated the same as the once-ayear racing clubs in grant allocations. Other councillors argued that the two major clubs which raced a number of times a year had a greater opportunity to generate income than did Burrandowan and Kumbia. They also claimed the latter two attracted tourists while the Nanango and Wondai clubs were more for members. Debate was sparked by a council staff recommendation that Burrandowan and Kumbia clubs each get $2000 grants from the Regional Council’s Community Assistance Scheme in 2009, and that the Nanango and South Burnett race clubs get $1000. Cr Barry Green, asking for all clubs to be treated equally in the grants, said the two once-a-year racing clubs contributed little to the racing industry when compared with Nanango and Wondai with their multiple meetings. The $1000 grants recommended for the two major clubs would not compensate them for “opening the gates” at their individual council-sponsored meetings whereas $1500 (one quarter of the $6000 allocated to racing clubs) might help them break even. The mayor, David Carter, did not agree with the role Cr Green attributed to the minor clubs, saying they were both major drawcards to the South Burnett for tourists who boosted the region’s economy. “We, as council, are about keeping all South Burnett organisations alive and thriving and we can do so indirectly by our grants to those bodies which are doing just that and continuing to service our communities. We must keep funding such organisations”. Cr Green: Clubs racing five or six times a year must contribute more to this region’s economy than clubs racing once a year; let us therefore treat all clubs the same. Cr Cheryl Dalton said she at first found the $2000 v $1000 grants recommendation difficult to understand but once the criteria was explained she accepted it, even though it was

“still unpalatable”. Cr Kathy Duff supported Cr Green, asking the four clubs be treated equally ie $1500 for each from the $6000 pool. Cr Carter again disagreed, pointing to the Nanango and Wondai clubs, with a number of meetings a year having a steady income whereas Burrandowan and Kumbia with one-off meetings had limited revenue sources. Cr Green: Such views show a lack of understanding of the racing industry. Cr Debra Palmer supported the four-way split of the recommended $6000 allocation to race club while Cr Damien Tessmann said the two small clubs with limited income sources had greater need of council help which, he said, should be on a “needs basis” because it was not fair for the two small clubs to be placed on the same level as the two large ones Cr Dalton: Should the staff recommended overall $6000 grant be split four ways, the extra $500 for the two big clubs would not make much difference but a cut by that amount to the two small ones would a huge difference to them as they will find it difficult in future years to survive if council does not give them maximum possible support. Cr Tessmann said it was a complex issue for which council should develop a policy for race club grants in future years to avoid a repetition of such a divisive debate. A head-count by the mayor showed four councillors in favour of splitting the $6000 four-ways and three favouring the original recommendation of $2000 to the two small clubs and $1000 to the two larger ones. After further debate councilllors decided to give each of the four clubs $2000, with Burrandowan (racing in May) getting an almost immediate payment and the other three clubs getting their grants after June 30.

Local players perform well at state golf championships Murgon ladies player Elizabeth Kennel (pictured) came fifth in the Women’s Championship (gross) as well as the Women’s Net competition. Peter Bligh Senior and Max Conlon, both from Murgon, matched Ms Kennel’s efforts in the men’s championship, coming fifth over the three rounds of golf, both with a 226. In the Men’s Nett league, however, Mr Conlon and another Murgon man, Arthur Georgetown, came in equal fourth, while another Murgon golfer, Kevin Saltner, came third, with 196. The ‘home ground advantage’ pulled a large number of indigenous South Burnett golfers out. The 54-hole annual event is open to all male and female golfers of Aboriginal and Torres Strait islander descent who hold a current Australian handicap.

James Barclay Four ladies from the Noosa Heads bowls club bowled over eight other bowl clubs contesting the Kingaroy Bowls Club Annual Kia-Ora Ladies Carnival held last week. Played over a two day period, hundreds of bowlers bowled their biased balls to wins as many ends down without penalty. Club president Di Reed was impressed with everyone one’s effort, but the local bowlers, a long with many others, could not keep pace with Noosa Heads. The coast team went on to get 4 wins and 46 ends. Second place was Nambour on 3 wins and 1 draw and 41.5 ends. Third place went to Millmerran with 3 wins and 52 ends. Tansey, Mooloolah, Tara, Pomona, West Toowoomba and Kingaroy all played well but was no match for the Noosa ladies.

Junior Soccer online article The opening carnival for the Kingaroy Junior Soccer Club Inc was held at Wondai last Saturday. The weather cleared and the heat was on for teams from Cadets down to Under 6's. The kids kitted up, with their new jerseys as yet unmarked (not that they weren't afterwards) and took the field.
