bunch there, still on their way

home, I think, so anything could happen this morning. Still to come - our PM's approach to Indonesia over Schapelle Corby's jail sentence. And the global project bringing street performers together to sing a classic song. Plus, Enrique Iglesias on being a sex symbol like his dad. We're back soon on Sunrise, live from Melbourne for the Cup. you'd expect a smooth, rich blend. for a second year in a row. Sunrise keeps in touch with the new BlackBerry Pearl

thanks to our friends at Telstra. Enrique Iglesias was a huge hit last night when he performed the latest song from his album 'Euphoria' on 'The X-Factor'. But the superstar thinks he wouldn't have been able to cope if he'd started out on a talent show like that. Enrique had the experience of his father, Julio, on his side

but he's told us he actually walked out on his family to start afresh after a fight with his dad. We spoke to him about that, and life with his partner, Anna Kournikova.

# I can feel your heartbeat

# Sing it

# I can feel your heartbeat # Enrique Iglesias is at home on stage. And last night on 'The X-Factor', he showed how it's done.

# She said to me

# I can feel your heart # Of course, Enrique came into the industry a different way. He had a musical father in Julio, although he didn't want to trade off the name.

I love his music and respect him so

much but as a father, he has always

been a 10. But

been a 10. But once I sign adrecord

contract, I left my house when I was

18, I got in a small fight you have

with your parents, you disagree with

a few things and you, the record

business, I think he was just trying

to protect me.

# I can feel your heartbeat

# You said to me

# I can feel your heartbeat # His latest song, 'Heartbeat', shows a raw side to the heartthrob. Although it's still a very raunchy video not that it apparently bothered his partner, tennis player Anna Kournikova. I guess you could say it's almost like an actor being in a movie role.

It has a girlfriend or a girlfriend,

a girl that has a boyfriend who is

an actor and they have a love scene

with someone, and say, "

with someone, and say, "No, honey

you can't do that, " you can't do that, ",

you can't do that, ",." It is work. From art, to horseracing later today Enrique will be a guest at the Melbourne Cup. Something he reckons he knows a bit about. I used to race horses, I used to be jockey back in the day. But it wasn't really horses, it was donkeys. It's actually big in Miami, so it's pretty similar to horses. You just ride a little farther back, you're not like. I think he might be gee-ing us up. And we'll have more of that interview later in the show.

Really? An extended version. Well,

he is a great talent and I think we

should have more and there is no more races tips. Soon on Sunrise - how a sandcastle fell foul of beach authorities. And Tom Waterhouse explains how to place a bet today.

For all of us mug punters. Also ahead, the UK tightens security on air cargo. So should we do the same? And the man jailed for calling a magistrate "mate" when Sunrise continues, mate, live from Melbourne for the Cup, mate.

The 150th Cup has reignited the debate about whether the first Tuesday in November should be a public holiday right across the country. Later this morning, we'll hear from a leading racing commentator who says the Melbourne Cup is our only true national sporting event. Victorians already get the day off. So should the rest of us also have the day off?

Would you? Look, I think it is good

in theory because most of Australia

sort of takes at least half a day

off, but I reckon it would be a bit

embarrassed explaining to someone

overseas, you have a national

holiday? Yes, for a horse race. I

like the idea, I think you go home

at lunch time and then you've got

time to sort of watch the race,

because a lot of people do go to

lunches and events. School pickup is

just, we say it every year but it is

an awkward time, if we could just

move the race a little. My husband

has mentioned it to me because he is

on school pickup duty. I am all in favour of a

favour of a national holiday, it

makes great sense. Shock me!

makes great sense. Shock me!? But it

is a major world event, a major

international event and it is our

event and celebrate it with a

national day. Around the country,

whether you're in Kalgoorlie,

whether you're in Kalgoorlie, the Gold Coast, you will take half a day

off, go to lunch, most people won't

go back to work, a great export for

Australia, Kochie, you got to get

excited. Maybe half a day. Go to

work in the morning for a couple of

hours and leave at lunch. Beretts,

you got Joan's tips? No, she has her

cup of tea in the morning with

cup of tea in the morning with the onwers and trainers. But she is a

big Bart fan and she will go with

Bart. Sent

Bart. Sentimental. If you're calling in sick to join in Cup festivities you might want to think twice about posting photos from today on the internet. A man who lost his job for chucking a sickie to celebrate New Year's Eve won't get his job back. The barman got a doctor's certificate to cover his time off but his boss sacked him after a photo on Facebook showed the man partying. So should employers be able to get rid of a worker for things posted on their personal website?

Woops! Kind of a bit silly, caught

out big time, I guess. Should the

doctor be dobbed in for the AMA for

obviously giving a false doctor's

certificate. Yes. Surely you

realise, if it goes on Facebook it

is public, it is not private. No

matter how much you think it is. It

is a bit silly. Finally being clicked, the magistrate who locked up a man in Ipswich for calling him "mate" in court. Magistrate Matthew McLaughlin told the man to call him, "Sir" or "Your Honour", before sending him the cells. The Police Union and local mayor say the magistrate is out of touch. So is it OK to call a magistrate "mate"? Isn't "mate" the great leveller? A term you can use anywhere, anytime for anyone?

Or just when you have forgotten

someone's name. Or do some people

deserve something more respectful.

On the surface it seems stupid but,

you get the feeling the bloke was

probably a narc. He might have been

pushing the magistrate's buttons.

And it was the last straw but can

women say mate a lot. I have trouble

saying maaate. What do you say? I

say Hiiiii! Don't give away secrets.

Some women say darl, we are not kind

of darl girls. It is harder when you

are a femalech It is code, when we

are out and I say mate, Lib knows

and she goes, hello, I'm Libby

Kochie. Unless you are fighting with

your spouse and they go, " your spouse and they go, "Aren't you

going to introduce us." Rooow! You

do it to John? No! There was one

time... Beretts we will catch up

with you in tin minutes. California is voting on the legalisation of marijuana. Should Australia do the same? We'll debate the issue, next hour. Also ahead - Tom Waterhouse with a punter's guide to Cup Day. But next, news, sport and weather live from Melbourne.

A little mushy under foot this

morning, there is the track, all

eyes, less than nine hours, the

horses will Beal bolting. That is

the trainers' stand there, the

brains trust on Melbourne Cup day,

the final tactics are being

discussed between the jockeys and

the trainers, whispering in the

horse's ear, getting them primeed

for later today. The jockeys are

sleeping in. Hope it is heated in

there. It is fresh, a few showers

We're here for the 150th Melbourne Cup. Now just ahead, the basics on placing a bet, with Tom Waterhouse. And later, can our PM persuade Indonesia's President to send Schapelle home? Right now though, it's time for a news update. Here's Nat. A 25-year-old woman and her 6-year-old son are recovering in hospital after having a chemical, thought to be acid, thrown in their faces in Melbourne. The woman answered her door in Northcote last night when a man allegedly threw the liquid at them before running off. She didn't open the flywire door fully and that seems to have taken the brunt of the acid. The woman's car was also damaged and police are investigating if the woman knew her attacker. This year's Melbourne Cup has been dubbed a 1-horse race. Bart Cummings' So You Think the red-hot favourite. After eight wins from 11 starts,

the horse is being compared to Phar Lap and Makybe Diva. The legendary trainer says his star can go the distance. He's ready to go two mile or further and that's what I bought him for and that's what we aim to do. 100,000 people are expected to flock to Flemington to watch the 150th Cup. Prime Minister Julia Gillard will meet with Indonesia's President today to appeal for clemency for convicted drug smuggler Schapelle Corby. Reporter Alex Hart is with the PM in Jakarta. Good morning, welcome to Jakarta - the third stop on the Prime Minister's tour of the South-East Asian region. Julia Gillard touched down here in the Indonesian capital last night after a brief visit to Malaysia where she continued to push her plan for a regional processing centre for asylum seekers in East Timor. While Julia Gillard will be pushing that idea again today in Indonesia she will take up the case of convicted Australian drug smuggler Shapelle Corby

X Australian government has backed

in Corby's plea for clemency based

on humanitarian grounds in relation

to concerns about her mental health. Corby has had 17 months taken off her 20-year sentence since she was convinced in 2005 but clemency is a big deal. Since becoming the Indonesian President,

Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono has not once granted clemency to someone convicted of drugs offences. So a big day ahead for the Prime Minister.

For now, it is back to you. A 27-year-old Sydney man has been charged over the alleged assault of Jan Utzon, the son of the Opera House architect Joern Utzon. The attack happened in a lane in Manly on the weekend. Controversial broadcaster Derryn Hinch will be in the High Court today as part of his battle to name child sex offenders. Hinch has been charged with ignoring suppression orders after revealing the identities of two people at a rally in Melbourne. He says the current law is a restriction on freedom of speech. The 66-year-old, who is battling liver cancer, will be in Canberra for today's hearing. In finance news, afternoon trade on Wall Street. stocks have turned negative during

he does that, I will change focus. Britain is increasing aviation security measures after the recent discovery of two parcel bombs sent from Yemen. They include increased checks on people travelling to the UK. The crackdown comes amid warnings Australia's air freight system could be a soft target for terrorists. Sunrise foreign editor Dr Keith Suter has been following the story for us. Good morning. Britain has extended the ban on unaccompanied air freight from Yemen and added Somalia. What's the significance of the inclusion of Somalia?

I think it is a smart move. We have

been concerned about Somalia for

some time, there are allegations

about what is called the altia bob

movement, in -- Elshabab movement

even here in Australia. The Home

Secretary has decided not only to

deal with gem p Yemen but get in

early and include Somalia and I

think it is a smart move. We were

talking couple of days ago about

reducing airport screening but now

passengers won't be able to take

printer cartridges larger than 500

grams? So longer queues? Yes, we

already have to take computers out

of cases if you are traveling with

computers but what will happen they

will ask you an additional question,

are you carrying aerosols or printer

cartridges. For a lot of passengers

already sick of the security

arrangements, it becomes yet another

problem. We also have the screening

for explosives, it is why may pick

at people at rantm and ask to --

random and check the clothing and go

around the bag, it is looking for

aromas from particular explosives.

But doesn't the explosive material

used in this terror plot

undetectable? It is according to the

allegation is that it is

undetectable according to x-rays as

you go through the screening but

you go through the screening but it can be picked up because it will

exude a very slight aroma or vapor

and that is what they are hoping to

pick up, it is why the they have the

test thing. But intrusive you have

got to be swabbed in terms of your

clothing and your bag. If it is

wrapped up in a consignment or

freight, then you can't open it up

each time to put your detector into

it. It is easier to carry on as

freight if you want to blow up a

plane rather than put it on your own purseman. plane rather than put it on your own

purse -- person. If our freight

industry is a soft target, how much

are our freight flights scanned? It

is the passengers we give the most

attention, freight will now,

obviously receive far more

attention. Maybe we need to change

it. Thank you, Keith for joining us.

Here is Kochie. To not have a punt on the Melbourne Cup is almost un-Australian. In fact, about 70% of Aussies bet around $150 million on the big race. But if you're unsure on how to have a flutter, bookie Tom Waterhouse is here to explain it all. Good morning, Tom. Let's go back to the basics. How do you place a bet on the Cup?

bets against the favourite, Bart

Cummings's horse. So yes. If So You

or go to the Tony Abbott and place a

have ever seen. More than Makybe

Most importantly, it stopped raining. If you've just tuned in we're at Crown's Carnival Live Site for Cup Day. Beretts is at Flemington for the late mail on the field and the track.

All happening. And Nuala is getting ready to experience the luxury of the Birdcage.

No-one more equipped for that either. Remember, Sunrise is the only breakfast show inside Flemington's gates, meaning you'll get the inside word on Australia's greatest race. And you can join us here at Southbank too

Beretts has been talking to the

jockeys and trainers and ground

staff, we have it all here. You can

join us here at South Bank for our

Cup Day breakfast. Right now it's time for Nat and the news. Good morning. A win for So You Think in today's Melbourne Cup could elevate Bart Cummings and his horse above Phar Lap as Australian racing legends. More than 100,000 people are expected to flock to Flemington for today's big race. At this historic 150th Melbourne Cup legendary trainer Bart Cummings is chasing a lucky 13th win. While the 82-year-old's battled health problems, his horse So You Think is the overwhelming favourite. He's ready to go two mile or further and that's what I bought him for. The Prime Minister agrees. I'm tipping So You Think, favourite, sentimental favourite with Bart Cummings.

The Opposition's looking at the outsiders. This is the one day of the year when I have a bet, and I'll probably put it on Descarado. Punters across the country

are expected to spend more than $150 million on today's race. So you'd think the jockeys would be feeling the pressure. Is he favourite, is he? There are conventional methods to take a punt on the Cup. Or meet Bee-Bop the poodle. For years he's helped his owner pick winners

by walking across the form guide. His impressive record includes a triple treat with Makybe Diva. No matter which horse you back, this year there's just one sentimental favourite.

I'll be happy for all the fans. Police are investigating an acid attack on a mother and son in Melbourne. The liquid was thrown in their faces by a man who knocked on their unit door at Northcote. The 25-year-old mother and her 6-year-old son suffered burns to their faces and were taken to hospital. The woman's car was also damaged. A 16-year-old boy has died after a hunting accident in country Victoria. Two teenagers were hunting on a property near Merriang late yesterday when one of the boys accidentally shot the other. The injured boy was rushed to the Royal Melbourne Hospital where he later died. New South Wales police will today formally identify a body

believed to belong to missing teenager Matthew Appleby.

The body was found at Forresters Beach on the state's Central Coast yesterday, two weeks after the 16-year-old disappeared. Some of his belongings had been found on a nearby beach, sparking fears he may have gone for a swim. The Appleby family was told last night about the body find. A massive factory fire has destroyed two businesses on the Gold Coast. Half the factory was completely gutted by the blaze but three other businesses in the complex were saved

as fire crews put out the flames using cranes. There was a lot of volatile chemicals in the panel and paint shop

there were several small explosions that could have been caused by pressure cans, things like that. It's not known what caused the inferno. A fire investigation is under way. The South Australian Education Department will review a case of extreme bullying in which a student was nearly hanged. The incident happened in Adelaide's north in September but has only just come to light. A 13-year-old boy was strung up to a post twice but managed to struggle free. The school disciplined four students but no police charges were laid and an ambulance wasn't called. The state's Education Minister says his department will review the case.

Top jockey Michael Rodd believes last year's Melbourne Cup champion, Shocking, is ready to run the race of his life at Flemington this afternoon. As hype builds around Cup favourite So You Think, the Shocking camp is happy to fly under the radar.

It's good, you know, it takes the

pressure off the owners, Mark and

The American's 281-week reign as world number one ended yesterday when he was replaced by Lee Westwood. He'll go head-to-head with the Englishman at this week's HSBC Champions event in Shanghai.

Woods hasn't won anything since last year's Australian Masters at Kingston Heath. Stephanie Gilmore's assault on surfing's record books has continued overnight. The Queenslander wrapped up her fourth straight world crown on the way to taking out the Rip Curl Pro Search event in Puerto Rico. The 22-year-old is the first person to win four world titles from as many attempts. Men's world champ Mick Fanning was one of the first to congratulate Gilmour on her latest slice of surfing history.

It is a tremendous achievement. Just

a reminder as you start to gear up

your day, in Melbourne, heading to

Flemington, Metro Trains is the way

especially given the weather which could be drizzly later in the day am

I don't know what it is like where

hopeing and had our fingers crossed we were going to skip through the

kicked off and hit us here which

mean as premium to find dry spaces

like, Crown carnival live site, it

is kind of like the Birdcage at

Flemington but here at Crown and it

is free for everyone to use right

throughout the Crown Carnival but

you will need an umbrella and coat,

it is a little warmer than

yesterday, yesterday it was 6

degrees so it did plummet a bit more

temperature to keep it warmer. The

small amount, it will be annoying if

anything, just 0.

anything, just 0.4mm has fallen and

lucky to see a millimetre today,

will it hit us, won't it

champagne one is really lifting the

bar, boom! It is all about tradition

and Chris and Julian are going to

show me the tradition behind

champagne Mumm. I have never seen

this, opening champagne with a sword

or a subarrage. We are hopeening

bottles with the traditional method

of subarrage. It is more an art. I

will attempt to show to you, so

basically what we are doing is

running the blade along the bottle.

And then the whole, not just the

cork but actually all the top of the

bottle will come off. I will believe

it when I see it Waaahhh! Can I have

go. It is not easy, they say

Napoleon's men did it in battle, if

they won they deserved it, if they

lost they commiserated mism A

prestigious way to open a bottle. I

am not sure if I am insured with

this. A personal record for the

earliest I have opened a bottle of

champagne, thank you. Back to you,

Kochie. Woooh! Brilliant. That is

the place to be. Perfect! In the

bird bur there. Half your luck. We

will cross back later. In just a few

hours, i 650 million people will

watch the race around the world, it

is an institution, it is the first Tuesday in November. Author and racing journalist from 'The Age' Patrick Bartley is with me. Good morning to you.

150 years is extraordinary It is

amazing. It is a race that has

gavelinized Australia. They should

make Australia Day on Melbourne Cup

day because everyone takes the day

off. For those interstate people

they relish it as much as

they relish it as much as the Victorians. Three quarters of the

world will be watching the race

today, but 20 years ago, it was just

our race. The amazing thing, we is

such a wonderful horse in So You

Think, coming in for this historic,

the 150th anniversary, Tom

Waterhouse saying he thinks the

greatest horse in history. They are

making comparisons with Phar Lap,

like cricket with Bradman, it is

amazing. The other dimension, nine

very good European horses that we

haven't seen much of and a very good

buildup of locals but So You Think

has gripped the nation. He is a

powerful horse and the Bart Cummings

magic, the X factor makes it all the

better. So a sensational race. Do

you reckon Bart can make it 13 wins?

I do, he will be very short and I am

not a great favourites man but gee,

you are very game to bet against

him. What about the weather. A

concern, we had a wonderful day

yesterday, the most track that

recuperates so beautifully, but just

this rain this morning concerns me,

it has put them back that little bit

more but I would say, it will be just slow.

just slow.. Just slow, well, that is

pretty remarkable given all the rain

it has had. They have got the most

sfaisticated drainage system of any

track in the world, so long as it

doesn't rain heavily on the day it

will be a good service. You

will be a good service. You have written books about tales

orphpunting and the Melbourne Cup,

you have seen big losses and amazing

wins. What are your favourite

stories of the Melbourne Cup? My

favourite story, just one aside to

that, on the gambling side, everyone

loves to gamble was the AFL football whaor won $

whaor won $10,000 on the Saturday and another $

and another $10,000 on the Sunday

and on the Monday they had mad

Monday and he said no, I will take

the there are 20,000 down to the

casino, worked it up to $ casino, worked it up to $30,000 and

his friends came in and he said no I

will break the casino. The next

morning he was there and didn't is a

cab fare to get home and on the

kitchen bench there was a note on

the table saying you don't deserve

this but on the nes cafe can is $ this but on the nes cafe can is

$88y,000 ugworth of chips. Some of

the great horses and stories behind

the Melbourne Cup? Marvellous to

have a mare lie Makybe Diva to

within three in a row, bought from

Europe, couldn't get a bid, bought

here, and a year behind by the

Northern Hemisphere and just kept

betting better and better and

betting better and better and the Melbourne Cup, just as wonderful to

be in Bart Cummings time but her

time too. A very special race, even

if you are not a punter like me if you are not a punter like me you

can't help but be infected by it.

Thank you. And if you want to read more true tales from the track pick up a copy of Patrick Bartley's book 'On the Punt'. Legalisation of marijuana is a thorny issue which comes up every now and then. Californians are about to hit the ballot box on the question.

The no vote is ahead by the slimmest margin. So would we ever consider the move in Australia? Here to debate that are Fiona Patten of the Sex Party and political advocate Wendy Francis. Good morning. Fiona, you think pot should be made legal - why?

Look, obviously, our 50 year war on

drugs has not worked. We have spent

billions orphdollars and -- of

dollars and it failed miserably so

we do need to take another approach

and look at other models from other

countries. Okay, Wendy your views?

You don't support the legalisation,

why not? No, I don't, it is a

stupefying drug and alters the mind.

So what we are talking about is

something that makes people lose

control. I am tired of talking about

money when we are talking about

people's lives. I am a bit

suspicious it is money that is even driving this in

driving this in California today.

They are deeply in debt and hoping

the legalisation of marijuana will raise over $

raise over $1 billion in taxes. If

we put money before people's lives

we are in really deep trouble. I am

glad you acknowledge the financial

situation of California because it

couldn't be ignored in this

discussion but Fiona, it is a drug

and alters the mind as Wendy said,

is making it legal giving in? No we

have got to start taking a different

approach and treating drug use as a

health issue rather than a criminal

one. I think it is 82 per cent or

one. I think it is 82 per cent or 86 per cent of all arrests in Australia

are for possession, I think we do

need to look at totally different

approach, yes, look at cigarettes,

it is a legal drug, a very dangerous

drug but because it is legal we can

do proper education, we can regulate

it, and we have seen a decrease in

the use of tobacco. I think we have

seen the same in countries

seen the same in countries like Portugal where they decriminalize

marijuana and seen a decline in the

use of it. Alright, Wendy, Portugal,

it has happened, the rate

it has happened, the rate of teenage

use has dropped significantly,

use has dropped significantly, do you think it would be an up side? It

is a weird way of looking at it if

we think it is reverse psychology.

Say that you can do it so they won't

do it. No I don't agree at all. I

think that cigarettes is a different

issue because it is not a

mind-altering drug. Yes it is. Try

to combat, well it is not a

stupefying drug, Fiona, what we are

talking about with marijuana is the

700 microgramsise what starts the

mind altering with marijuana use.

They are proposing in California

that every person can carry 28

gramgs. Put that into perspective,

one gram equals 1 million micrograms

and at that, the mind begins a

neurological use of change. But

prohibiting it hasn't worked. I

disagree. It hasn't stopped people

using it. People are not not using

it because it is against the law,

people are using it. We are seeing

increase, young kids use it. I

agree, it

agree, it is not a safe drug but

criminalizing it has not worked. We

need to treat it as a health issue,

not a criminal one. I don't think

you know... You are fine, Mel Mel, I

don't think we change the laws

because that way we trick people

into not doing it. We will be taking

it to the Victorian election for

this exact debate in Victoria. We

will see what happenedens with the

debate in California, they are about

to vote on it. The discussion will

come up here in Australia. Thank you

for your contribution. Schapelle Corby's clemency bid could be given a massive boost.

Julia Gillard is expected to use a meeting today with the Indonesian President to ask for Corby's return to Australia on mental health grounds. For more we're joined by Seven News political reporter Alex Hart, who's in Jakarta following the PM on her tour of South-East Asia. Good morning, Alex. How will the PM make her approach?

Well, that will be made during her

meetings with

meetings with President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono today and

certainly her intervention won't

hurt. Julia Gillard will be keen to

demonstrate just because there is a

change of leadership in Australia in

recent months there is not a

recent months there is not a change in the government's position.

in the government's position. Under Kevin Rudd he was quite supportive

of Corby's bid and made several

representations on her behalf. He

has continued to do it as Foreign

Minister now. Our Consular officials

have regular contact with Corby and

have developed concerns about her

mental health and are supporting the

bid. Australia will continue to

lobby diplomaticly it won't

interfere with the Indonesian

justice system and it will have to

play outside. What are the chances

of a reprieve? The way politics

work, the Indonesian President must

the know Julia Gillard is going to

bring it up. She would have some

indication on the way he is thinking

for her to even formally approach

this. Is it a foregone conclusion?

Do you think he is about to change

his mind on this? No, certainly not

a foregone conclusion at all,

Kochie. I mean, everything rests in

the Indonesian's President's hands,

he has the power to reduce sentences

and there power to quash the

conviction and do what he wants.

History is not on her side. In his

six years as the President,

six years as the President, Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono has not once

granted clemency to someone

convicted of RU-486s offence --

drugs offences. It is an 11- hour

bid, they lodgeed the bid for

clemency and now it is a matter of

wait sw see. One thing is that

clemency requireathise prisoner to

admit guilt, it is something

Schapelle has never done. There is

not a

not a time frame set on when the

decision will be made but it is

widespread that it is expected in

month. Thank you. Is this the worst ever case of the fun police gone mad? A family holidaying on the Sunshine Coast was told to stop building a sandcastle between the flags. A lifeguard asked Kim Thorley and her young family to move on from playing in the sand. The life savers felt it was in the wrong position only because if they needed to do a rescue and they stepped in a hole we could cause an injury to them. The request shocked onlookers on the beach. But lifeguard officials are standing by their decision asking people not to dig deep holes in the sand. So is this a simple desire to keep beach-goers safe or bureaucracy gone mad? For more we're joined by Lifeguard services manager for the Sunshine Coast Council, Scott Braby. Good morning. Is this making a mountain out of a molehill? Are we banned from building sandcastles?

Absolutely mountain out of a mole

hill, life guards on there Sunshine

Coast are not the fun police, we

don't have issues with kids building

sand castles on the beaches. So what

happened in this situation? The

family was told to move. Was it a

case of no sand costles between the

flags? No, at the time, the lady was

digging reasonably deep hole

directly in front of the life

guard's rescue equipment and he felt

it would hinder a rescue if he had

one at the time. So he a
