At a special  meeting with five elected representatives of the two regions last  Friday morning, Davis agreed to present a recommendation to  cabinet that would allow local residents a 50% reduction on the  new fares. ,  Gibsons'Mayor Carry Labonte stated at a press conference  held after the meeting that Davis had initially been against any  alterations to the proposed fare schedule. After listening to the  ��� presentation by Labonte, Sechelt Mayor Harold Nelson, Powell  River Mayor Dave Hart, and Powell River Regional District  Chairman Harold Lennox and SCRD Chairman John McNevin,  Davis changed his mind and agreed to a system of locally controlled commuter cards.  If approved by the cabinet the  new fare schedule will go into effect on June 1, after which date  the current commuter cards will'  not be valid. A new system of  residents' cards will be run by the  three local governments and will  probably operate out of the Gibsons. ICBC centre.  ; Labonte pointed out that since  there was very little time allowed  for the SCRD and the villages to  organize the resident card system, a 60 day period during which  it will be necessary toj>rove residence by means of a driver's license or other positive proof of  residence had been arranged.  After that period only those who  have the $3.00 picture'cards that  will be issued by the centre will  qualify for the reduced rate.  Labonte added that regular  checks will be conducted to make  sure the . system is not being  abused. Davis also told the meet-  . ing that a new type of cash register will be installed at the Horseshoe Bay terminal in an attempt  ious problem with shortchanging.  Davis told the local politicians  that ferry employees had been  ringing in commuter rates and  collecting full fares for the tourist  traffic, The new cash register wSl  show the passengers how much is  being rung into the till and it is  hoped this will end the problem.  It was also announced that  Davis has' agreed to setting up a  new group rate in an attempt to  ajid, local teams and groups who.  are presently finding it difficult  to afford the transportation costs'  to the Lower Mainland. Other  points covered in the meeting in  clude a possible restriction that  will disallow resident passes for  vehicles with out-,of-province license plates and a color code on  the cards which will make sure  they are valid for; only one year.  The local governments have been  handed the responsibility for  policing the system and are determined that the present situation of 52,000 cards for 34,000  peopie will not be repeated .-  Under the new resident system  the cost for car and driver would  be $7 instead of the proposed increase to $14. Passengers will be  $2 each and commercial rates  will remain as proposed.  Labonte reported that Davis,  can forsee no problem with cab-  .. inet approval and that the resident rate would be officially announced as soon as the cabinet  session approved the minister's  recommendations.  The local representatives also  learned at the meeting that of the  total 1974-75 operating deficit for  the ferries only $3 million was  -���directly lattributaWe-to the-Howe -  Sound run.  The Friday morning meeting  with Davis was arranged last  Tuesday after the same five representatives took their case to a  press conference at the Hotel  Vancouver. SCRD Chairman John  McNevin told the Vancouver  media that the increases were not  double but triple the present rates  for commuters. McNevin stressed  that the government was anxious  to see each area take on its share  of the population expansion but  when something like the increases arose, which would drastic-  . ally affect that growth, they were  No changes in  sprinkling by-laws  Sprinkling regulations have  once again been established within; the Village of Gibsons despite  thefact that most of the council  Members feel that this year they  wijl not be necessary at least until  the middle of June.  ' ���' Aid. Metcalfe and Metzler both  queried the need for the regulations to-be re-established at a  tjiijie when the main reservoir is  constantly overflowing and suggested that this 7 year council  ccjuld at least delay the date when  the by-law comes into effect.  However, Village Clerk Jack  Copland informed the board that  the annual regulations, which are  intended to automatically come  into effect on May 15th. of each  year, had already been announced in newspaper advertisements  and Mayor Larry Labonte added  that to delay the regulations  would create confusion later this  year when the sprinkling by-law  would have to be re-established  and would lead to further confusion in ensuing years as people  Union willing  would be unsure of when the  regulations came into effect.  Metzler and Metcalfe agreed to  drop the request for this year but  asked that council be informed  before the ads go into the papers  from now on.  The sprinkling regulations are  as follows and affect all residents  of the Village of Gibsons:  1) Odd numbered, properties  in the Village and North, Shaw  and Davis Roads may sprinkle on  odd calendar days from 7 to  10 p.m.  2) Even numbered properties  in the Village and Hillcrest,  Henry, Crucil amd Reed roads together with Highway 101 may  sprinkle on even numbered days  from 7 to 10 p. mi  3) Soaking hoses are not permitted.  4) Sprinkling is permitted from  only one outlet per piece of pro-  . perty.  5) all sprinklers must be turned  off if a fire siren sounds;  B.C. Ferries Employees' Union  spokesman Don Black stated this  week that the union was hot responsible for the decision to leave  80 cars stuck in Langdale last  Sunday after the protest against  the new ferry rates backed up the  traffic.  Black stated that the employees offered to work overtime but  a request to the management by  business agent Barry Lynn had  been turned down.   .  The local union members are  still waiting for instructions from  the union's head office before going ahead with a strike vote.  unwilling to even grant the local  governments an audience with  the minister. McNevin-also mentioned the effects on unemployment and the real Restate market  and drew attention to the fact that  120 to 130 daily commuters would.  have to pay up to $1,000 more per ;<  year for .the service. He added "'...  that the O.A.P. pass was meaningless because you "really have  to be athletic to catch the West  Van bus or else take your car."  McNevin was also concerned  over the effect the increases  would have had on this area's 9%  growth rate.'He claimed that a lot  of developments would be badly  . hurt and some bankruptcies  would have been inevitable.  Powell River Mayor Dave Hart  echoed McNevin's sentiments  and added that the popular "Circle Tour" from Courtenay to  Powell River, then--.'.down to  Horseshoe Bay and back across to  Nanaimo would now be far too expensive and. therefore there'  would be a significant drop in  the Powell River tourist economy.  Powell River Regional District  Chairman Harold Lennox fek the  decision was more politically oriented and added that the government's lack of consultation with  local bodies showed a "Profound  audacity."  Ted Dixon of the Sechelt Indian Band also attended the press  conference and stated that he was  concerned over the fact that the  band would now have to re-think  its moves into economic self-  sufficiency. He felt that if the  fare increases went ahead it  -.would^-nieatf ^p^vert^'for* * many."  coastal Indians and a correspond- .  mg increase in crime.    ��� ,  At the Friday afternoon press  conference Labonte stated that he  felt that the group of representatives had now accomplished about  as much as could possibly be expected, even though the effects  on the tourist trade and commercial transport remain unchanged.  SCRD Chair man John McNevin  and Sechelt Mayor Harold Nelson  later supported Labonte's view of  the session with the minister and ._  are hopeful that the situation has  now been resolved as well as  could be expected.  . .-:���*/>*  -  &.*_V**tMH **  MADEIRA PARMELEMENTARY grades. 2 and 3 dance  around the May pples.

'  The letter from Secretary-  Treasurer Roy Mills, explained  that the village is required to pay  �� sum of $21,615.50 per month for  the period of January to May,  1976 and demanded that the village come up with the'cash by  May 15.  . The school board is financed by  the school mill levy which is collected in trust by the municipal  government. The council however .  feels that the trustees should wait  until the taxes have been collect:  Ind are unwilling to take out a  oari" at 'today's' high - interest  rates in order to make the payments.  The total school levy from the  Village of Gibsons for 'the 1976^  fisqtf year stands at $259,386 or  40.1rmills. School Board payroll  supervisor, Ann Robertson, said  on Friday that the school board is  in ��� tough financial straits and  therefore must push for the  money. She added that the village  of Sechelt is also in a deficit position.  Village of Gibsons Clerk Jack  Copland-. stated on Wednesday  that the villages had no plans to  borrow the money at this time and  emphasized that this was an on  'going problem that had plagued'  municipalities and school boards  for many years. Copland added  that the village was not willing  to pick up the interest payments  for the school board, especially  since the village received so much  of the blame for raising the mill  rate when in fact their rate was  fixed and it was the increases  in the school budget mat were  contributing to the increased tax  levy;       7- ;  The school board stated that  they will have to give the matter  further consideration if the village  does not pay by the May 15  deadline.  Sechelt businessman Hayden Kil-  lam has finally/ backed down and  agreed to make tr�� hecessaiy al-  teratkms to his OK Ttrf Store  ���  building.  VillageClerk Tomi Wood told  council Wednesday night that  Killam had lodged a $2,000 performance bond and had agreed to  make five alterations to the premises, with building inspector  Roy Taylor.  The five alterations include rebuilding the stairway wall on the  second floor to give a V* hour fire  separation, the elimination or installation of wired glass in three  windows, installation of asbestos  board panelling in a portion of the  building, installation of a steel  fire escape on the west wall and  installation of sprinklers or V*  hour fire separation on the ceiling  of the storage area.  Provided that these .alterations  are completed by.Jiriy  18 :the.  $2,000 performance bond will be  refunded to Killam. ,    ,   ;  In a Thursday morning interview Killam told Coast News that  he had decided that "discretion  wasthe better part of valor" and  that the alterations as they now  stood were considerably less expensive than had originally, been  proposed. Killam is interested in  starting additional buildings in  Sechelt in the near future and decided that it was better to get this  project cleared out of the way .7  However, Killam did feel that the  $300 he had been charged for  village time and legal fees was a  bit excessive] He estimated the  cost of the alterations at about  $500.  inside  Page 2 ��� Commentary ��� Is Davis pulling the wool  over our eyes?

Gibsons splashed their  way to victory defeating both Sechelt and Roberts Creek,  but few were keeping score. Other participants included  the Sechelt Timbermen, Wakefield and trie RCMP.  Many spectators got more than they bargained for as the  firemen occasionally shot streams of water over their  heads in an attempt to upset their opponents and score.  A ,ist of roads to be paved  under the 1976 Coast Paving Ltd.  contract with the Village of  Gibsons was released at last  Tuesday's village council meeting. Over $70,000 worth of new  paving is to be laid within the  village and a further $9,970 has  been set aside for improvements  to existing roads.  Abbs and Sargent roads are the  only two roads so far approved for  normal repaying. At the Tuesday  night meeting Mayor Larry Labonte asked the works committee  chairman Bill Laing to look into  finishing the paving on Park Road  Laing agreed to take a second  look but wasn't hopeful about the  possibility of working the project  into this year's budget.  Among those streets to receive  the almost two miles of new  paving to be laid this year are:  Shaw Road ��� 940 feet of un-  paved portion, 20 ft. width; 500  feet of unpaved portion, 10 ft.  width.

The Minister has  agreed to recommend to cabinet that the  Sunshine Coast be allowed a half fare discount for residents and in addition has  promised to take a new look at providing  a reasonable group rate for smaller  teams.'  We applaud the Minister's decision  to restore the resident passes but find it  regrettable that it was necessary for our  local government representatives to go to  the expense and trauma of calling a Vancouver press conference in order to get a  chance to sit down and rationally discuss  the matter with the Mininster responsible. Just because we voted NDP in the  last election does not negate our rights to  appeal government decisions. The five  governments present at the meeting, the  Sunshine Coast Regional District, the  Powell River Regional District and the  Villages of Sechelt and Gibsons along  with the District of Powell River represent a total population of nearly 35,000.  Because of political polarization those  people were in fact isolated from the normal democratic process.  It appears that if you want anything  out of this government you've got to  make it on TV first, otherwise by the time  you're heard the damage is done. -  It should be further noted that in an  interview with the Vancouver Province  which was carried in last Saturday's  edition, Labour Minister Allan Williams  reiterated his stand that the ferry workers  will be legislated back to work if necessary. However, Williams chose to. use a  rather unfortunate example for. his case  when he claimed that "It's the same  thing as if the major access to any particular community were by a bridge, and  the bridge collapsed. The government  would have to do something about it...in  this particular case the ferries are a kind  of bridge."  Aah, it seems like we've heard that  line before Mr. Williams. We gather Jack  Davis did not help you write the speech.  ICBC gets pompous  In an attempt to back up their demands for compulsory seat belt legislation ICBC issued a press release last  week which has the audacity to inform us  that we have no right to drive on public  roads. We are not arguing with the idea  of compulsory seat belts, there are arguments for both sides, neither of which is  basically worthy of much comment. The  section that is worthy of comment is one  small paragraph which informs us that:  "It is not a right to drive a private vehicle  on a road built and maintained by taxpayers ' money ��� it is a privilege."  This kind of logic exemplifies the  kind of thinking which is currently guiding our province's destiny. You the tax  payer have no right to the roads which are  built with those funds that are deducted  from your pay cheque and the cost of the  gasoline you buy. Somewhere along the  line Victoria has lost track of the idea that  government is, in theory, supposed to be  "of the people and for the people" as our  southern neighbors so eloquently put it.  Instead we seem to have adopted a  system of "government for governments'  sake", a doctorine that recognizes no personal rights, only the good of the entire  society. Even the NDP would hesitate before making the statement that the roads  belong to the state as opposed to the  people.  This kind of "ho rights" thinking is  dangerous. It's fine to operate on a basis  of "one for all and all for one" but only  after each person is granted the right to  be themselves. Public safety is important  but there is no need for public safety to  mean no personal rights. We have a  right to drive on this province's roads  even if we do not have the right to endanger other citizens by drinking and driving  or not wearing seat belts.  Summer traffic  Ihe summer tourist season has once  again launched itself on to an unsuspecting public. From the May 24 weekend on  the local roads will be clogged with campers, trailers, boats and motor homes. The  result will be that local residents will no  longer get from point A to point B quite  as quickly as they would like. It will also  mean another season of traffic accidents  and high blood pressure- which could  easily be avoided.  If local   residents  will   plan   their  schedules, when possible, so that they  avoid the heavy ferry traffic and if the  slower trailers and campers will show  some courtesy and let the faster traffic  past, everyone will be able to enjoy a  safer and less frustrating summer.  Road safety is everyone's responsibility and when the roads are in as bad a  condition as they ate on the Sunshine  Coast it becomes imperative to slow down  and keep your cool.  The jello monster  A Canadian neurologist attached a  brain-wave recording machine up to a  blob of Jell-O and recorded varying evidence of electrical "lfie" in the food.  His purpose was to demonstrate how  hard it is to determine when the human  brain is really "dead" when there are a  lot of "artifacts" ��� tongue movements,  sweat, etc. ��� that make the machine's  needle wiggle.  It did not prove the neurologist's  claim at all.  Rather, the test demonstrated that  everything that has JelI-0 has life, and  the eating of this dessert raises some  serious moral questions, indeed.  ���Dayton fOJ Daily News.

You're sure we didn't meet in Hawaii last year?  byDOUGSEWELL  Commentary  A cheap trick that worked  "Give us your first impressions," suggested my editor.  "Tell them what you think of the  area and the community and all  that." My eyes flashed, I swallowed several times, at last my  bug chance to write a column,  who knows where all this ink  could lead to. Before I started I  glanced at the Vancouver Sun and  wondered how much they would  offer me when they heard of my  genius. Mt week began this  way. . .  As I drove off the ferry I spotted  hundreds of placard waving demonstrators. At the same time a  seagull spotted my windshield.  Blinded by the colorful splotches  before me I bounced through several conveniently placed holes on  the exit route from the ferry.  What a friendly place, I thought.  I arrived at the newspaper  office enthusiastic and naive.  Unknowingly I walked into the  makeup room, asking questions  and trying generally to be an all-  around nice guy: Immediately I  was pounced upon like free beer  at a loggers' sports day. At  12:40 a.m. I had pasted my last  ad and written up my last headline. I spent the night in the luxurious comfort of my boss's son's  bedroom.  The morning after the hunt began. Lodging I soon discovered  was at a minimum in the area.  Where to stay? I accepted the  gracious offer of my editor to stay  in his travel trailer for a few days.  Contemplating a tidy spot to tide  nie over during my search for accommodation, I arrived to discover an empty propane tank and a  cold trailer. Admirably, as only an  editor can do, he began to tackle  the job of loosening the tank from  its place. Whipping out his black  correction pencil he circled the  Once again the May 24 weekend has come and gone. The annual invasion of campers, trailers,  boats and motor homes is well under way and it will be September  before the retreat is sounded, ferry increases notwithstanding.  Jack Davis has managed to get  himself off the proverbial hook by  promising to give us back our  commuter cards and stating that  the price of goods in our stores  will not be severely affected by  the increase in commercial rates.  What still remains to be seen is  the effect on the local tourist  industry and the unemployment  picture. What use are lower ferry  rates if the local economy is so  depressed that no one can afford  the reduced fares.  The crunch will come on the  July 1 long weekend. It will be the  two and three day visitors who  will have to decide whether the  new fares are worthwhile or whether the interior is a better bet.  Those who are planning a stay of  a week or more are not likely to  worry about the 20 odd extra dollars that will be flushed out of  their pockets, but those tourists  who come to the Sunshine Coast  once a month or more might not  like the idea of shelling out an  extra $100 or $200 this summer.  Some of the resort owners figure their business could fall off  by anything up to 50%. If they're  right then it's time to once again  start blocking the ferries. If bankruptcy becomes the standard fate  of the hotels, motels, resorts,  trailer parks, marinas, rent-a-  cars, general stores, sporting  goods suppliers, and countless,  other enterprises then the.Sunshine Coast is still in real trouble.  Most of these businesses are in  borderline financial positions to  start with, the increase may just  seal their fate.  The economy of the Sunshine  Coast is not strong. Port Mellon,  tourism, welfare, U.I.C. and Old  Age Pensions form the majority  of our incomes either directly or  indirectly and a severe cutback in  any one of these industries is  enough to cause a major local recession. As John McNevin said at  last Tuesday's press conference,  "Vander Zalm has already declared us a welfare disaster area"  and now our tourist business is  ..also sitting on the brink of  ruin. Two other major industries,  the ferries and real estate, will  also suffer badly, 50 or more  Langdale workers will be forced  from the area and as a quick drive  up and down the Sunshine Coast  Highway will prove, a lot of people have got the "For Sale"  signs already posted.  With the pulp and paper indus  try being as unstable as always it  doesn't leave local businessmen  with much money to find its way  into their tills. On top of this,  regardless of what Davis says, the  new ferry costs are going to make  the goods on the shelves more ex- ���  pensive and a trip to Vancouver  is still up by 40 -100%. Any economy is only capable of accepting  so much pressure, the question is  when will that point be reached?  If we want to keep our way of life  we had better start promoting our  tourist industry. We can no longer afford to discourage tourist  facilities.  The Sunshine Coast is currently  enjoying a growth rate of about  9% per annum. We have been referred to as the potential "bedroom of Vancouver" and have  been told that it is up to us to absorb some of the expanding  growth of metropolitan Vancouver by our provincial government.  Now, that same government has  introduced economic measures  that, though not as drastic as before, the restoration of the commuter cards, will effectively cut  our growth rate at least in half  and will imperil any move in. that  direction.  The five representatives of our  local governments seem happy  enough with what they've accomplished and granted it is one  Letters to the Editor  hell of an improvement over what  Davis was trying to ram down our  throats before. I'm just not sure  that it is time to quit and I'm not  entirely convinced that things  aren't going exactly as Davis has  planned.    .  It works like this. If a burglar  broke into your house and stole  $1,000 you would be very upset.  If the RCMP turned up at your  door a few hours later to tell you  that they had recovered $900 of  the money you would probably  say "Thank God," or something  similar and write off the $ 100 that  was irretrievably lost. However,  if the same burglar broke in and  stole $100 and nothing was returned you would still remain upset.  Jack Davis has knocked the bottom out of our economy and  stolen our commuter cards. Now  he's giving us back the commuter  cards and everyone is practically  dancing in the streets. The  simple fact that the passenger  rate has doubled and the tourists have been set up for a  minimum of $14 round trip has  been forgotten because we have  our cards and the passenger rate  is only doubled, not quadrupled.  It's a cheap trick, but it looks  like it's going to work.  After all it's better to have a  half fare for residents than nothing at all.  HIGHWAY 101  Editor:. I have been given to  understand that the Department  of Highways is planning to widen  Highway 101 from its present  width to 100 feet. This would  mean making use of privately  owned property and thereby  shortening the length of lots and  in some cases interfering with  homes.  Part of my home on Block 3,  D.L. 686 bordering on Highway  101, would be situated on the proposed highway as would most of  the businesses within the lower  portion of the village of Gibsons.  In addition any changes in the  width of Highway 101 would affect persons living on the Chek-  welp Indian Reserve which is no  doubt under the control of the  Indians or the Federal government on the Indians' behalf.  In my opinion and that of many  others in Ginsons the construction of a new highway from Langdale to the- west, bypassing the  settlements of Hopkins Landing,  Granthams Landing and Gibsons  would be much better, and would  provide a less' hazardous and  shorter route to persons travelling  to Sechelt, Pender Harbour and  Powell River.  I am concerned about any reconstruction of Highway 101  within the Village of Gibsons and  hope the rumors I have heard are  incorrect.  ���ANNE BURNS.     .  CONGRATULATIONS  �� Editor: After witnessing last  Sunday's rally at Langdale I  would like to congratulate, the  residents, police and ferry officials on the way they handled  themselves:  It is a compliment to the area  . that such a confrontation can take  place, and riot result in, at the very  least, bad feelings between the  various parties.  ���IAN CORRANCE.  ANTI-SOCIALIST  Editor: I have been a resident  of B.C. for six months.  I would have voted Social Credit at the last provincial election,  if I had been eligible, because I  am anti-NDP and anti-socialist.  I agree that the provincial budget must be balanced and that  ICBC should not be subsidized. I  disagree however, with increased  government expenditure and the  higher taxes levied to balance the  budget.  The cost of operating the B.C.  perries should be lowered.  One doesn't create jobs in order  to keep people off the unemployment rolls 1      .  I feel the quadrupling of the  ferry rates is unjust. The province.  does not put the total cost of  road construction on the communities through which it runs.  Ferry rates should remain constant, except for indexing to the  rate of inflation. Excess costs, not  met by revenue,.should be borne  by the whole province. Drivers'  licences should be used by residents of the Sunshine Coast as  proof of residency for a one  half fare reduction.  ���R. MACLEOD  (Disappointed Social  Crediter)  PROTEST PRAISE   ���  Editor: The RCMP are to be  commended for their judgment  and restraint in the public protest  at the ferry terminal on Sunday.  There are few places left in this  world where demonstrations of  the will of the people can take  place in any manner other than  placing an "X" on the pre-select-  ed ballot once every several  years. I watched as very peaceful'  gatherings become the "media  spot-light" for an unresponsive  government to show it - means  business by sending in troops of  riot police.     ���   ,'  Bill Bennett and Jack Davis  must be.shown that coast residents will not stand for indiscriminate and unconsidered meddling  with our ferry system. The RCMP  with - sensitivity to the public's  need to vent its anger and exert  what pressure it can, has shown  that the police are a part of our  community and not just a muscled  arm of the government.  ���KEN DALGLEISH,  R.R. 2, Crowe Rd.  byJAMDEIVES  trouble spots. I applauded his  work speed and the precise manner in whice he immediately located the problem and acted upon  it. Unfortunately the tank was not  as impressed. A half hour later it  yielded its hold as we forced it  mercilessly to its knees. Racing  into Sechelt 1 was amazed at the  number of deserted streets. I had  never seen a deserted ghost town  before at seven o'clock in the evening. Our search finally turned  up, after several anxious minutes,  a sympathetic mechanic who  agreed to fill our propane tank.  Confident that all the major hurdles were now^ overcome, I relaxed as the attendant turned on  the tank filler. Two seconds later  my new state of tranquility was  shattered. The tank had sprung  an unrepairable leak.  An unexpected surge of independence caused me to decline  my editor's offer of a comfortable  living room for the intrigue and  excitement of a local hotel.  The hotel's clerk was an extremely obliging sort, he didn't  even grumble when I asked to  move to a quieter room, even  after he had already shown me  three. Struggling up the stairs to  my room laden with boxes and  pieces of bread and cheese that I  was planning to eat for supper, I  encountered a very tall young  blonde woman in an evening  dress, who smiled coyly at me. I  __ said hello, trying to make my  voice sound deep and masculine.  She moved on.  Remembering the can of  prunes for tomorrow's breakfast  which I had forgotten in the car, I  opened the door and saw this  mysterious lady about to enter  her room. She had strangely  transformed herself from her  early formal dress to an amazingly tight pair of blue jeans. Looking  over her shoulder she saw me  standing there.  I siezed the opportunity and immediately said, "Are you here on  business?"  "Sorta," she yawned.  All of a sudden she struck me  that she reminded me of someone  I knew very well. Yes, I had it  now, she looked strangely like  my mother. Before I could tell her  this startling news she disappeared into her room.  Towards midnight I was gradually getting to sleep. The cars had  quit squealing their tires outside  my window. I heard voices out in  the hall way. "C'mon, c'mon," a  male voice repeated, "c'mon."  "No," came a weak reply. I  listened transfixed. "C'mon, I've  got lots to drink down here, we  can have a good time." A door  closed; the hallway was silent.  Tuesday I found myself easing  into a comfortable armchair in, -  the Hotel Vancouver. The press  conference put on by the Sunshine Coast and Powell River districts was about to begin. My  eyes raced around the large room  taking in the sophisticated action -  and assurance of the Vancouver  media people. I began to dream of  future assignments in Toronto  and Montreal, just then the boss  gave me a jab with his elbow and  said, "Did you get that?"  "Sure," I returned, and then  rolled my big brown eyes for the  benefit of the television cameras.  On board the ferry the boss  took me aside and said "Ace, if  you're gonna make it in this,  business you've got to keep your  mind on the job at all times. We  don't need none of that there rot  you picked up in the university, ���  workin' for a newspaper is different." He paused, then said,  "By the way, how do you like it  here?"  I looked up at his waiting eyes,  then over at the sun wanned  shoreline of the coast. "It's  great," I said.  taxi protest?     Council orders  stump clearing;  Editor: With everyone protesting about the rise in ferry rates  and the removal of the commuter  cards I would like to protest about  the so-called improved taxi service that we have received.  Most of the older people are  dependent on taxis up here to  take them shopping. When they'  have finished their shopping usually they are anxious to get back  home:  Twice now after having called  a taxi they have had to wait well  over an hour for them to arrive.  When the calls were made we  were told that the wait would be  15m|nutes.  I think that it is outrageous  to make older people wait that  long. I guess they don't care how  long they make them wait as they  know they have no other way  home..  Also the fares have doubled.  For people on a fixed income this  is really unreasonable. I know  there is a mini-bus to transport  people for appointments, etc. but  Sechelt Council has ordered  Union Steamships Ltd. and Inter->  facial Designs to clean up the-  7stumps that are presently litterr  ing the B.C. Hydro right-of-way  through Seaside Village.  Alderman Morgan Thompson  asked council to make the deci--  sion after he noticed that the area  was becoming a breeding groUng  for household garbage because of  its untidy look. A copy of the letter will go to B.C. Hydro asking  that permission be given to Sea-;  side Village to burn off the site.  The developers will be told to;  finish clearingthe site and asked  not to continue dumping the  stumps on the right-of-way. .  Village Clerk Tom Wood also  stated plans are underway to  move the pile of rocks the village  has stored in the middle of the  Shornecliffe road allowance, as  soon as the use of proper equip-  ment/can be arranged.  *< ' IJW'lJll > L-i p'^ij'"   inn���w���mmm-~    ���      . ��������   ���  Letters to the Editor  it would be great if a service could  be set up that would provide  transportation for them.  How many of you drive alone in  your car to go shopping. Imagine  how happy it would make our senior citizens if they could travel  with you to shop. It might take  you extra time but I think that it  would be worth it. One lady was ,  so concerned about how long she  would have to wait for a taxi that  she kept itwaiting while she went  in shopping. So you can imagine  how much her shopping trip cost  her;  1 think that it is time something  is done to help out the Senior  Citizens.  ;    ��� KATHY NYLEN  .   .   Gibsons.  ...Editor's Note: In response to  the idea raised in Kathy Nylen's  letter we have contacted the Community Resources Board and have  been informed that Louise Hume  of the Gibsons Senior Services office at 886-7415 would be glad to  act as a co-ordinator for matching  up rides to the supermarket or  even outings if anyone in interested in giving one of our senior  citizens some of their time.  Give her a call and make one of  our senior citizens a little happier.  SOCRED  Editor: I'm a Socred and I resent out commuter cards being  taken away from us and wish the  advance in ferry rates could have  been raised more gradually. I  realize they had to increase the  rates to help recover the deficit  the former government left, I just  wish it could be made a little easier for us.  I'm really more concerned  about the hospitals. I wish the  . government would make them return to work and take away the  right to strike in all essential  services, especially those related  to human suffering.  I know that whatever the Socreds do will be criticized but if  the NDP had not made such a  mess they wouldn't have had to  use such drastic measures.  ���R. W. COURSE.  Sechelt zoning by-law  At 'ast Wednesday night's  meeting Sechelt council gave first  and second readings to the new  Zoning Amendment by-law 162.  The new bylaw is designed to create four development-areas within  the Village of Sechelt and to give  council more control over the development of these sites.  Under the new regulations developers will only be allowed to  use 60% of the total lot area for  the building structure and only  one structure per she will be al  lowed within the development  areas.  Village Clerk Tom Wood  stressed that the by-law is only in  its preliminary stages and told  council that he expects there will  be several alterations before final  adoption.  June 10 has been set as a tentative date for the public hearing  on the zoning changes. The date  may be altered if a hall is not  available for that evening.  Church Services  UNITED CHURCH  . Rev.

The special  meeting was called to give the bylaws further readings after a  planning committee session at the  board office.  The by-laws were first discussed at the planning meeting and  it was noted that a number of  alterations had been demanded  by the Department of Municipal  Affairs. The first amendment  clarified the use of bulk storage  facilities at Pender Harbour  which has been one of Area A's  most common objections.

The department also removed  the mandatory three metres separation between nouses and clarified some of the water access  only paragraphs. The department's main objection, however,  was to the fact that the regional  board had failed to give sufficient notice of the public meetings  in Pender Harbour.  Paterson remarked that the  board wass desperately in need of  a better public image in the Pender Harbour-Egmont area. He  felt that the board had run afoul  of two or three "power groups"  in the area and had suffered considerably because of this. The  board agreed that the best way to  achieve this end would be to immediately begin a Pender Hair-  ^ nient  75% sold  Sunshine Design and Development Ltd. has informed Gibsons Council that they are opto-  mistic about fulfilling the presale  requirements for their new sub-'  division on Highway 101 next to  the Gibsons Legion- in the near  future.  The developers stated that they  now have letters of intent to purchase 11 of the 24 lots in the subdivision and hope that their presale requirement of 75% or 18  lots will soon be met  The village planner has recommended preliminary approval of  the project subject to further  architectural study and provided  that the developers are willing to  undertake proper landscaping  and the building of a solid fence  along Highway 101 to act as a  visual and sound buffer.  The planner also recommended  that the Charles English Subdivision which is to be developed  along an extension of Farnham  road should be put to a public  meeting and added that a solid  fence and landscaping might  again be in order.  A new application by MTR  Holdings to build a neighborhood  pub was referred to planning  committee for further consideration. A preliminary decision is  expected by the next council  meeting.  bour and District Community  Plan and it was felt that this  would also give the board a  chance to find out what the local  residents wanted in the way of  development without listening to  the organized groups.  A new public hearing on the  by-laws has been tentatively  scheduled for Monday, June 7.  At the extraordinary board  meeting after the committee adjourned, the board gave an amended third reading to by-law  103 so that it could be resubmitted to Victoria and an amended  second reading was given to bylaw 96 which will not be forwarded 'to Victoria for final consideration until after the public hearing.  A motion to the effect that a  Pender Harbour and District  Community Plan be started immediately was given unanimous  consent.  The SCRD planning committee  considered a request for rezoning  that would allow the Halfmoon  Bay Patio Gardens restaurant to  obtain a neighborhood pub license at last Thursday night's  meeting.  Owner Ken Clarkson told the  committee that an LCB inspector  had given preliminary approval  to the plan and that the Department of Highways apparently had ���  no objections to the proposal.  District Planner Adrian Stott  informed the board that the commercial zoning requested by  Clarkson would not be adequate  and recommended that a Public  Institution Zone be created for  this purpose. Stott also remarked  that he was not totally in agreement with the proposal as the  idea of a neighborhood pub was  that it be within walking distance of its clientele and there  was only one house within half a  mile of the proposed she. Stott  was also, concerned that it was  necessary'to cross the highway if  walking to the pub.  Otherwise, the board was in  general agreement with the proposal. ^  Director ��� Peter Hoemberg  moved that the planning committee give the project approval in  principle despite the drawbacks  and recommended that Clarkson  go ahead with gathering his other  approvals before the SCRD went  through the rezoning process, It  was also suggested that the owners investigate the possibilities  of procuring a similar license that  would allow them the same hours  and facilities without the necessity of rezoning.  When all preliminary approvals  have been received a public meeting will be called on the zoning  question.

New May  queen  Saturday morning saw many  smiling and enthusiastic people  gather at Madeira Park to kick off  Pender Harbour's May Day festivities.  A parade consisting of floats,  clowns, many colorfully decorated  bicycles, go-karts, and a crazy fire  *,    engine got things under way at  9:30.  Wendy Lee received her crown  from retiring Queen, Coreen  Brown. The Queen's attendants  were Theresa Penson, Selina  Kammerle, Dana Bosch, Hazel  Reid and Betty White.  Kelly Mair, May Queen.for  Pender Harbour Secondary, and  her attendants Martina Zuidema  and Vicki Farrell were also present for the ceremonies.  Special guests included Sechelt May Queen Becky Goodwin  '.' and her attendant Elsie Kingston.  Sporting events took place in  the afternoon for those who felt  athletically inclined. Many others  were more content to watch or  just enjoy some of the refreshments provided in the concession  stand.  May Day celebrations have  been held in Pender Harbour for  over 50 years and judging by the  enjoyment and participation of  ; local residents thay will continue  to be a great event for many  more years to come.  The award for the best float  went to Pender Harbour High  School. The best commercial float  award was given to the Bank of  Montreal and the best decorated float went to Madeira Park-  Elementary.

Sunshine Coast News, May ^, 1976.  Sixteen of us went to North  Shore Bowl last Sunday to take in  Ken Knight's 12 game Marathon.  There were 52 entries altogether  and when it was all over Gibsons  Lanes bowlers had taken five out  of the 10 top spots. Carole Skytte  won first place in the Handicap  event with Mel de los Santos taking second place and Dianne Fitchell taking fourth place. In the  Scratch event yours truly took  third place and Dianne Fitchell  Arena elects r  officers  The Sechelt Arena Association  elected a new board of directors  and presented an interim budget  at their regular meeting last  week.  The new directors of the association are: Hazel Kwashey (past  president), Gordon Dixon, Jim  Mathiespn, Joe Fisher, Glen Phillips, Dana Kearney, Joe Benner,  Vern Maedel, Brian Loewen, Harold Nelson, Bev Mortishaw and  John Bodernach.  The board will be meeting on  May 28 to select a management  committee and elect a_ president  and secretary-treasurer.  , The group's budget showed a  spending deficit of $5,973 for  the last fiscal period and a return  of $3,877 from the Skate-a-thon,  from which 25% of the proceeds  will go to minor hockey and figure  skating.  It was also announced at the  meeting that Shop-Easy and Trail  Bay Sports have bought a time  clock for the arena which will be  installed by September.  by BUD MULCASTER  took fifth place. Ken Skytte,  Gary Fitchell and Romy Talento  won high single games and yours  truly won a high four block. All  in all we took more than our share  of prize money. It's getting to the  point where bowlers from other  houses are starting to shudder  when they hear that Gibsons  Lanes bowlers are entering their  tournaments.  In our Spring League we had  two 300 games rolled with Ralph  Hogg leading the way with a 317  single and Henry Hinz rolling a  307 single.  This will be our last column for  this season and I would like to  thank Ron and Marie Cruice and  the staff of the Coast News for  their support and for putting up  with my misplaced participles and  lost commas.  It's been a good year for our  bowlers'and I hope next year will  be as good or better. Be back  next September, all things being  equal and God willing.  r\  Henry's Rofovafing  CUSTOM SEED BED PREPARATION  Any Soil Prepared For:  ���Landscaping  ���Lawns  ���Vegetable Gardens  ���Flower Gardens  i<  885-9585  LEROY IS HERE  SEE AND HEAR.

Hancock House,  1974.192p. Paperback.  Donovan Clemson was born in  England in 1907 and emigrated  to British Columbia where he has  resided since. Mr. Clemson is the  author of numerous photo-stories  and illustrated articles, as well as  two books ��� Lost Mine and Living with Logs.  Outback Adventure is a very  personal account of one man's  travels in the country near Armstrong, B.C. It is a combination of  memories of long past experiences and more recent travels. As  the  author states:   "For  many  years Armstrong was the base  from which I conducted my small  excursions in search of interesting aspects of rural life in interior  British Columbia... I have since  decided that no more fortunate  point of arrival could have happened . . . The monotony of the  climate around Armstrong is a  feature that seems to please the  majority of the inhabitants. . .  Undoubtedly this boring sameness of scene and climate drove  me to seek the variety I needed by  exploring whenever possible the  varied landscape which, I soon  discovered, surrounded the locality to which I was practically rooted at first by my 365 day-a-year  job as a chore boy on a dairy  farm."  Clemson explores aspects of  SUNSHINE COAST REGIONAL DISTRICT  Notice of Public Hearing  BY-LAW 96 ��� LAND USE REGULATION  Pursuant to Section 703 of the Municipal Act, a public hearing will be held  on Monday, June 7, 1976, 7:30 p.m. at the Regional District offices, 1238  Wharf Street, Sechelt, to consider Sunshine Coast Regional District Land  Use Regulation By-law No. 96, 1975. All those who deem their interest in  property to be affected by the by-law shall be afforded an opportunity to be  heard on matters contained in the by-law.  The intent of By-law 96 is to improve and standardize the regulation of  the use of land, including the location and use of buildings, in Electoral  Areas A, B, C, D, JE and F of the Regional District. This by-law will replace  Sunshine Coast Regional District Zoning By-law No. 35,1970.  !&;...'     ���"   . '7 .������������  By-law 96 divides the Regional District into residential, commercial,  industrial, rural and public zones, and establishes regulations applicable in  each zone. The metric system of measurement is adopted, with suitable  changes to numerical standards now in By-law 35 pertaining to such matters  as building height, setbacks, and site areas. Lot size will not be regulated  in By-law 96 but will be dealt with, in a Subdivision By-law. The policies of  the Islands Trust and the B.C. Land Commission are incorporated in By-law  96. Zone boundaries will be adjusted, where necessary, to remove certain  inconsistencies and non-conforming uses.  Take notice that the above is not deemed to be an interpretation of this  By-law. By-law 96 may be inspected at the Regional District off ices, 1238  Wharf Street, Sechelt, during office hours, namely 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.  Monday to Wednesday, 8:30 a.m, to 5:45 p.m. Thursday and Friday.

PRESSLEY  Secretary-Treasurer.  the interior which can only be  found by leaving the cities and  paved highways and travelling  the back roads. He introduces the  reader to The Sheep Camp'  (many of which no longer exist  due to economic pressures) and  the 'Mountain Watchers' ��� B.C.  Forest Service fire-watchers in  their lookout towers. "These may  *be approached over steep and tortuous roads which in most cases  permit one to drive to the very  summit of. the mountain. The  pampered motorist is thus indulged with extensive map-like  views of the valleys far below, a  pleasure previously reserved for  the more energetic mountaineer." He also provides insights  into the lives of ranchers ��� and  ferrymen and their ferries. ���  "Not the large and commodious  vessels you queue up for and wait  five hours for the privilege of  boarding, but a small. wooden  contraption that is generally  moored on the far side of the river  you wish to cross." He also describes the attractions of many  geographic areas near Armstrong  ��� Bella Coola, Lillooet, Arrow  Dam, Trout Lake, and Chilcotin,  to name a few. His love of this  country and excellent descriptive  style are well illustrated by,the  following description of the Chilcotin Valley:  "I found it much the same ���  beautiful, vast and untamed. I  saw again the wide valley, bounded by low, even sides which were  crowned here and there with vertical cliffs of rimrock. The river,  white as milk and almost as  opaque, surged through its canyon cut in the valley floor. Unaltered was the boulder-strewn  plain of the plateau, fairly open in  the east, but forested in the west  Bridges seeks fortune  by ALEXIS DAVISON  with endless jackpines relieved by  the occasional small meadow. In  the dimmest distance stood the  snow mountains, as the Indians  call them, the long, gHttering  barrier of the Coast Range . . .  There are no paved roads, no  pipelines, no railroads, no towns.  The road that traverses this wide  country is rough and dusty. There  are miles and miles of rail fences.  There are log cabins with dirt  roofs, cattle, cowpunching and  corrals, just as they were when I  first saw it."  This -book provides us with a  realistic picture of life as it was  (and to some extent still is) in the  area "near Armstrong.

At Gibsons council on Tuesday  night Haigh told the council members that he had discussed the  possibility of getting a new LIP  grant next fall with the project's  Vancouver office and had been  told the chances were good even  though the national LIP budget  had been slashed from $150 to  $100 million. Haigh informed  council that the group had made  the decision to go ahead and rent  the premises for June even  though they had not yet received  a promise of funds.  Mayor Larry Labonte agreed  that recycling was a worthwhile  project and promised to look into  the village's budget to see whether or not the funds could be  found. Haigh was promised an  answer by the end of the month.  At Sechelt council Haigh received an equally good hearing.  Alderman Ernie Booth was con-'  cerned that the funds' had not  been requested on a per capita  basis and that instead the group  had decided to ask for a flat rate  of $500 from each council. He felt  that with Sechelt's lower population they should not have to pay  as mush of the cost as Gibsons.  Mayor Harold Nelson said the  council generally supported the  recycling idea but added that they  were unable to give an immediate  answer as they would have to.examine their finances first.  A final answer was promised  for the next council meeting, on  June 2.  Jeff Bridges who plays a man  seeking his fortune in the west,  only to find more outlandish situations tlian he was counting on in  "Hearts of the West," climbs a  step nearer to superstardom with  each film he does. So far he has  appeared in only a handful of pictures but already fans are well  aware of the gifted young actor  who was nominated for an Academy Award for "The Last Picture  Show." "Hearts of the West" is a  Bill/Zeiff production for MGM,  released by United Artists.  Young Bridges has developed  his talent in such well-received  films as "Fat City" and "The  Last American Hero," winning  special praise for his characterization of Don Parritt in the Amer-  icam Film Theatre's version of  Eugene O'Neill's "The Iceman  Cometh." He also received another Oscar nomination as Best  Supporting Actor in "Thunderbolt and Lightfoot." His most recent film is Elliott Kastner's  "Rancho DeLuxe," a UA release.  CBC Radio  Born in Los Angeles to an acting tradition, Jeff and his older  brother Beau followed in the professional footsteps of their father,  Lloyd Bridges. At the age of eight  Jeff made his acting debut in the  "Sea Hunt" television series and  later did some segments of his  father's other series, "The Rover" and "The Lloyd Bridges  Show." At age 14, he toured New  England with the senior Bridges  in "Anniversary Wahz."  After graduating from high  school, Jeff studied with Uta Ha-  gen in New York and then did  more stage work before zeroing  in on motion pictures.  Bridges is also a proficient  guitarist and composer. He has  written more than 60 songs, one  of which "Lost in Space" he also  sang for the Quincy Jones soundtrack of' 'John and Mary."      l.y  "Hearts of the West plays  Thursday, Friday and Saturday,  May 27, 28 and" 29 at Twilight  Theatre, Gibsons.  yVpULOtfOy LIKEio but a faucet, a  vase, or maybe a rabbit or a fish fly?

The  Work Group is about a dozen women who meet once a.week at the  House, (the former United  Church building) to cut pieces,  make the tops and quilt the quilts.  More than 40 visitors came to see  the quilts and other items and to  partake of tea and Welsh cakes  and they left a goodly sum in the  silver collection tray.  Since a late start in December,  the group has made three beautiful patch work quilts which will  be auctioned by Red Cross in  Vancouver for the International  Funds. Another large quilt was  made from donated material and  this was sold locally. Besides the  quilts many dozens of diapers  have been hemmed and 30 chil  dren's sweaters have been knitted as .well as five afghans. With  more regular workers many more  items could be completed in a  year. Our work could not have  gone on without the welcome assistance from several community  organizations. Their help has  made it possible for us to maintain our bright and comfortable  work rooms and we are grateful.

At the May 13 meeting in St.  Hilda's Church HaU, Mrs. Betty  Monk, president, and 22 mem-  ners who attended learned that  their 271 hours of voluntary work  have produced the desired results.  Much credit for the great success of the raffle of a hand-crocheted quilt goes to Mrs. Billie  Steele and her mother, Mrs. Ada  Dawe.  During the  Lower  Mainland-  Area Conference recently held in  Sechelt, 385 visiting members en7; '>  "joyed"' the  informative^ business7  ��� meeting and the friendly hospitality extended to them by the  "Ladies in Red" of the Sunshine  Coast.

Mrs. Humm's report on the  bridge tournament noted the success of that feature. She already  has 19 couples sighed up for the  fall games beginning in Septem  ber.  Final preparations for the June  3 Spring Luncheon to be held  from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Senior Citizens' Hall in Sechelt, have  been most capably set up by Mrs.  Margaret Humm.  Once again we are calling for  assistance in the physiotherapy  department. Please contact the  Volunteer Director, Mrs. Muriel  ��� Eggins at 885-2422. if you can  help.  At the close of the meeting,  Mrs. Hall and Mrs. McDermid  served tea and refreshments.  The next meeting will be held  on June 10 at 2 p.m. in St. Hilda's  Church Hall.

I sit here staring out the window noticing the spots that need  cleaning. Watching the grass  growing, it's a,lovely shade of  green, about the color I felt when  I saw that beautiful tan girl with  the great figure last week.  Maybe my blood sugar is low.  I've read about hypoglycemia,  that's probably why I'm not as  . sharp, witty and full of ideas as  I should be. Should I drink a glass  of orange juice to raise it?  I may even be anemic. I might  be a very sick woman who should  be lying in bed taking medication  instead of spending all this energy and brain power.  I had better make an appointment with my doctor. I'm feeling  worse by the minute, the pains  will probably begin soon. Early  senility no doubt, is this to be my  curse? What am I to do?  I'll have to stop writing. I'm  beginning - to have palpitations,  my eyes are blurring, and I think  that my arches are falling.  I just want everyone who is  reading this column to know that  I have enjoyed writing, and I hope  'that they have found a cure for  me by the time that you read this.

McNevin told the board that  a representative of the "Y" had  brought their files over to Langdale for McNevin's inspection  and they had filially agreed that  the error in the prospective was  the result of an error by the solici-'  tor who drafted the prospectus for  the "Y". McNevin stressed that  at no time did the regional board  ever state that the area would be  rezoned to the Rl classification.  The problem arose at a regular  board meeting last month when  several residents of the sub-division complained that trailers were  moving into the area which is  mainly $40,000 to $70,000 homes.  A questionnaire hasbeen sent out  to all residents of the sub-division  and rezoning will proceed when  the questionnaires have been returned.  Gibsons holds revision court  The village of Gibsons has announced that a court of revision  will be held June 9 at 1:00 p.m.  to hear complaints dealing with  the recently mailed Water Frontage and Sewer Parcel Tax Assessments.

The move came after the board  was informed by the finance  section of the Department of  Municipal Affairs that due to the  delay in starting of construction  the cost of the project has risen  from the original $1,225 million  as estimated by the engineering  study to approximately $1,531  million, an increase of about 25%  Public Utilities Committee  Chairman Peter Hoemberg informed the board that the Regional District had originally  asked for the $1.5 million figure  but the allownace had been cut by  other Municipal Affairs departments. Hoemberg asked the  board to approve the changes so  that he could fly to Victoria to  seek approval of the bylaws in an attempt to keep the  May 29 referendum on schedule.  If the final approval can be obtained from Victoria this week a  referendum for aU residents of  the village will be held on that  date. If the referendum passes  public approval construction will  begin in the near future.  Statistics phone  Statistics Canada is setting up a  telephone network in British Columbia to assist anyone needing  help to fill out the 1976 census  questionnaire, on census day,  Tuesday, June 1.  Sunshine Coast residents may  contact the long distance operator  and ask for Zenith 0-1976. All  calls will reach census representatives who have been specially  trained to assist the public.  It is expected that just about  everybody will be able to complete the questionnaire by following the directions in the instruction booklet. Those having  difficulty will find help as close as  the nearest telephone.  This special telephone service  will operate 12 hours a day, from  9 a.m. to 9 p.m., from May to  June 4, with the exception of  Sunday, May 30, when the  switchboards will be closed.  A request from the Gibsons Volunteer Fire Department, asking  that they be allowed to answer  emergency situations in Port Mellon, was tabled at the.Tuesday  night meeting of Gibsons council.  Port Mellon which is not included in the mutual aid agreement  between   the   other   Sunshine  Coast communities has been trying to reach an agreement with  the GVFD for assistance in case  of a major emergency. Mayor Larry Labonte objected to the proposal because he felt Gibsons might  be left unprotected as the other  communities would not be ready  to serve the Gibsons area.  The matter will be further discussed at a meeting on water  problems on May 25, and at a  special meeting called by the  GVFD to discuss fire protection  problems on May 31.
