BACK­WARD GLANCES

Sunshine Coast Daily - - LIFE -

EX­TRACTS from the Sun­shine Coast Daily 30 years ago today:

Mar­lin Makes Dave’s Day: This year’s mar­lin sea­son looks set to be a record one, judg­ing by the size of the sea­son’s first catch - a 52kg black mar­lin hooked by Dave Roberts, about 10km east off Mooloolaba.

Coun­cil backs Coast dial-a-bus pro­posal: Ma­roochy Shire Coun­cil will lobby the State Gov­ern­ment to al­low a dial-a-mini-bus ser­vice to be es­tab­lished on the Sun­shine Coast. Di­vi­sion three coun­cil­lor Jim Bir­rell said the “ra­dio-con­trolled” ser­vice would fill the gap in the pub­lic trans­port sys­tem on the Coast, par­tic­u­larly in the Ma­roochy­dore-Mooloolaba area.

Coast “sailor” takes is­land race: Tal­ented Sun­shine Coast sail­boarder Kevin John­son showed brilliant con­trol to snatch a thrilling vic­tory in the fourth An­nual Fraser Is­land Marathon at Her­vey Bay on Satur­day. Mak­ing the most of the blus­tery, 15-knot con­di­tions, John­son headed a fleet of con­tenders to win the con­struc­tion class and over­all cham­pi­onship hon­ours.
