 Provinoiial Library'*""''  Victoria,  B.  C.      ~^���"  A dispute seems to be shaping up over the Sunshine Coast Regional .  District Zoning Amendment Bylaw No. 35(29), 1976.

Ferry report ignored  LAST WEEK Dave Barrett at a press conference in Victoria'  made public recommendations from an Environment and Land  Use Committee Report which had been available to the Government since January and officially given to them in April.  The recommendations induded that a 50% increase in ferry  fares be instituted; that large cars should pay more than small  cars; that, a seasonal fare structure be implemented; that  commuter rates be made available; and that there be fare  decreases for foot and bus passengers. It also recommended  the construction of bigger femes and that the government  should proceed with the construction of the Iona Island ferry  terminal. '..'���'  One is forced to question the high-handed rejection of this  report by the Social Credit government to whom it was available  before they raised the ferry fares 100%. As noted in the tegular  editorial columns this government's handling of the B.C.  Ferries is proving to be disastrous in the long term as well as in  the short term. The people of coastal B.C. are paying for their  government'sbigh-handed arrogance.  t^CMP? investigating ease of  Sechelt village council  *U ���A-'AV "-���  The Coast News learned this  week that the R.C.M.P. are investigating the activities of the  Sechelt Village Council. Further  details are not available at this  time."  In other developments on the  still-controversial sewer project  the one hundred and seventy-six  Sechelt residents headed by Bud  Montgomery are reported in  the, process of raising the $2,000  required as a legal retainer in  order that legal action can be taken against the Sechelt Village  Council.  The Coast News has also  learned that Legislative Assembly  Member Don Lockstead has, at  the request of local residents,  been actively pursuing the matter  of the Sechelt sewer system with  government officials m Victoria.  At the time of going to press the  Coast News has not' yet determined exactly what form Lock-  stead's enquiries are taking nor  what results may be forthcoming.  When contacted at his Texada  < Island home Lockstead informed  this paper that his activities had  been held up over the holiday  weekend. He expects to have  something to report to the. residents of this area by next week.  He assures his constituents that  the causes of the discontent will  get his vigorous and continued at-  Part of the senior citizen work crew is shown in action  at the construction site of their new Harmony Hall in the  Bay area; Gibsons.

At last week's council meeting  Alderman Dennis Shuttleworth  left the municipal ball after an initial 'in camera' session. Ill health  Was given as the official reason.  Alderman Ernie Booth was also  absent from the meeting, leaving  only Mayor Harold Nelson. and  Aldermen Morgan Thompson and  Frank Leitner to transact the business of the evening. The public  portion of the meeting was' concerned only with minor matters of  routine interest.  In   routine  council  business  it was decided that the fence built  by Bob Haley around his corner  lot in Seaside Village will be  allowed to stand. "We will have  to live with it", said Alderman  Morgan Thompson. There had  been    complaints    about    the  restriction  of viability at the  corner caused by thefence.  ..   The   proposed   purchase   of  Block 10 in the village was discussed. The   Provincial Government is seeking to purchase the  block with a view to developing a  provincial  subdivision. Government representative Mr. Hater  has   requested   a   meeting  to  discuss the matter.  -   In other developments council  h��wd   a   letter  from   Catton-  Buckham    advertising    agency  concerning   seat   belt   bumper  stickers. It was decided not to  contribute to the Salvation Army.  Council   members pointed put  that   the   village  had  already  donated $30.00 in January of  this year, up from the $25.00  donated in previous years.  In  other correspondence a copy of  a letter sent by/Sechelt resident  Charles Reachai protesting the  projposed    sewer    development  was noted by council.  As reported in the Coast News  last week, the James site for the  treatment plant had proved to  be unsuitable. Other sites were  discussed.  The short meeting ended  shortly after eight o'clock. The  next meeting cf the Sechelt  Village Council will be postponed until September22nd.  built on the subdivision. According to the prospectus there were  to be no mobile homes, no modular homes permitted on the  subdivision. Outside Antennaes  and even outside clothing lines  were to be banned in the interest  of the tone of the residential  development.  A protest meeting of lot  owners was held in the. home of  one of the lot owners on Thursday  August 26th. At the time the residents of tiie subdivision expressed their concern that the  proposed light industrial' rezoning would adversely affect the  resale, value of their property.  They also felt that there was  danger of noise and dust pollution from the light industry and  traffic ; consequent upon . it. It  was felt that some danger of  environmental hazard perhaps in  the area of effluents from the increased utilization of: projected  facilities of the wotk force of any  industry established in addition  to the possibility of noise and  dust pollution.  Spokesman for the protesting  residents, Norm Hoffer, urged  aU residents of the Peninsula to  conndert^lmpl^  own residential areas. "If residential zones can be reamed as  industrial without intervening  green belts," he said, "no one in  the area can be sure that one  morning they won't wake up with  a factory between them and the  view.."' 7,  Cameo Lands Ltd. President  Hall called an earlier public  meeting of concerned residents  to explain the situation,  that  meeting was chaired by Norm  Watson, who is described by Hall  as an 'unpaid agent' of Cameo  Lands.  Hall, when contacted by the  Coast News, said that he had personally knocked on every door  in the area that could be affected  to explain the Cameo proposal  to residents. He pointed out that  in the four years since the subdivision had been opened only  'five homes had been built out of  thirty-six lots. He said that the  fact that the area was bounded  by a practising rifle range, a  logging road leading to a large  booming ground, and was in  the vicinity of the increasingly  busy Sechelt Airport made  its future as. prime residential  land questionable.  Hall said that projected light  industry development was on a  natural plateau at the top of a  residential slope and the intention  was to lower the level of the site  six feet. The fill realized from the  lowering of the site would be  utilized to construct a 'benn' or  artificial gravel wall around the  industrial site on which it was  ;;"pTami��at3^p^  screen of trees . of hedge 'rendering the plant virtually invisible  from the residential lots.     ���    .  Philip Tattersal and Associates  in Vancouver, described by Hall  as being ��� an internationally recognized. Land Design Group,  were quoted by Hall as offering  the opinion that the plateau at  the top of the heretofore residential subdivision constituted  a    'natural    separation   point'  for co-operative construction  corridors for the benefit of both  users and providers of construction supplies."  When questioned about the  prospectus originally shown  prospective perchasers of the residential lots Hall painted out that ���  the final clause in the prospectus, Clause 15, permitted  Cameo Lands Ltd. to exempt  any portion of the subdivision ,  from the restricitkms or.benefits  outlined in the brochure.  Regional board representative for Area C, Bany Feanton;  expressed himself as being  fundamentally in agreement,  personally, with Cameo Lands  . Ltd. Pearson s��id that in Ins opinion the paramount consideration was that employment  opportunities be created, for the  Peninsula. ' 'Young people graduating from high school," sid  Pearson, "should be able to have  the opportunity: to undertake  their apprenticeships right here  on the Peninsula." He further  expressed the hope that it would  prove possible to have aU the land  clear through to the airport  . rezoned industrial as>Maeea>edi to^^7  "bethe only land available where  such rezoning was posstde.  Pearson characterised the  protesting as recent arrivals who  were automatical^ opposed  to any change in the Penmaula.  The controversy will be given  a further airing at a pubHc  meeting planned for September  13th. The meeting win be held  in the Wiison Creek Community  HaU, Davis Bay Road, Davis  Bay at 7:30 p.m.  PRESIDENT OF THE LOCAL Lions Club,  Joe Kampman, hands over the $1,000  cheque won every second month in the Lions  400 Club Draw. The winners in this instance  were four employees of the Bank of Montreal  including  Manager  Herb Clapham.  Kampman says the next draw for $1,000  will be held in November. The regular  weekly 400 Club draw for $100 will take  place next week as usual at the Bank of  Montreal in Gibsons.

The meaning is given as  'in chambers; in private'. As used in  law it indicates that section of a legal  action which it is deemed desirable to  hold between judge and counsel with  press and public exduded. As used in  local government work it denotes that  section of a council or board meeting  which it is felt to be in the public interest  to have with only board of council members attendant on the discussions.  The Sechelt School Board has provided  a valuable draft outlining those items of  confidential nature which it will deal with  . 'in camera'. They indude, according to  the draft provided by the School Board,  personnel matters where identifiable  persons are discussed and where the  discussions are likely to involve family  matters pertaining to the individual and  evaluative comments which might be  considered critical of the individual;  discussions concerning acquisition or  disposal of school sites; discussions relating to contract negotiations with  organized employees or with individual  employees who are not part of any  organized group; interviews with employees where the employee has requested  that the interview be in committee; interviews with students and or parents  of students when a matter of discipline  is involved. This is commendable in its  clarity.  The Coast News in checking with the  village councils and the regional board  discovered that 'in camera' sessions are  generally held when personnel matters  are being discussed or when subjects  come up that might directly affect the  value of individual property holdings.  A spokesman for the Gibsons Village  Council indicated that in the last year  and a half the incidence of 'in camera'  sessions from which press and public  are excluded has greatly lessened in  council deliberations. 'In camera' sessions are much more prevalent in the  meetings of the Sechelt Village Council.  It is obvious that provisions for confidential discussions in the areas Outlined above are a necessity, making it  possible for delicate matters to be  handled with tact and good taste. It  should be equally obvious that this tactic  of necessary secrecy should not be  abused.  There has indeed in this area been a  recent movement towards more openness  in the handling of public business. This  is evidenced by the comprehensive  drafting of guidlines pertaining to these  matters considered suitable for 'in  camera' discussion by the school board;  the marked lessening of the incidence  of 'in camera' sessions in Gibsons  Village Council; and the parallel movement towards openess taking place at  the regional board level, where recently  all committee meetings have been open  to the public with virtually no 'in camera'  sessions being held by that, body in the  past few months. It is to be hoped that  the Sechelt Village Council will shortly  follow suit. .  To paraphrase another legal maxim,  it is not enough that good government  be practised. It must also be seen to be  practised.  Ferries  If, after the bad news from the B.C.  tourist industry, any further evidence is  required concerning the counter-productivity of the stiff increases in coastal  ferry fares, more is at hand. Comparative  figures on rates and traffic volume" between the B.C. Ferries and the Black  Ball and Washington State Ferries  between Vancouver Island and Washington indicate that our ferries are losing  badly in the battle for the travelling  dollar.  The actual figures released for the runs  give the total fare on the B.C. Ferries  for car and passenger to be $14.00. The  fares on both the other ferry services  amount to $11.00. Traffic volume on the  B.C. Ferries is down this year over last  year by 33%. On the other lines, traffic  is up from 8% to 15%.  Unfortunately here on the Sunshine  Coast we have no recourse to a competing  service. Ours is not to reason...-why, ours  is but to pay and cry.  Tribute  Last week in our Remember When  Column we carried an item from ten  years ago concerning a previous visit  of Mr. and Mrs. Aeron Lewis of Cardiff,  Wales, to their daughter, local teacher  Nest Lewis. The Lewises were again  visiting, at the time. On Thursday morning of last week, Aeron Lewis died  suddenly. Perhaps not many here where  he died so far from home were priv-  eleged to know Mr. Lewis, but all who did  found in him a definition of the term  gentleman.  He was a man of wisdom with a distinguished career behind him at Cardiff  University. His qualities of witand kindliness were matched by a real humility.  He was one of those rare men whom just  to know enriched one. 7'  "His life was gentle, and all the elements  so mixed in him  That Nature might stand up and say to  all the world, '  This was a man."

Thousands are peppy at 70. Try pepping  upwithOstrex.  As a follow up to the Coast News story of  last week in which was repeated that Mr.  Lome Blain had caught himself a 63 pound  salmon in Rivers Inlet, the attention of this  paper has been drawn to the fact that Rene  Davey caught a sixty-nine and a half pound  salmon in the same area in 1947. Ms. Davey  is pictured above? with four salmon  she  caught on the same day. She informed the  Coast News that she caught thirteen salmon  that year, the smallest of which was thirty-  three pounds.  Rene reports that she took some considerable teasing from Tommy to the effect  that her success was due only to the fact  of his calming influence and location  of  fishing spots. Consequently, in his absence  one day, she took out a boat with her three  small children and landed another monster -  fifty-six   and   three-quarter  pounds.  Tommy Davey wants it clearly understood  that despite the teasing he was then and  continues to be proud of Rene's fishing  prowess.  Commentary  ��  Nanaimo Juvenile Court Judge  Stanley Wardill fined the B.C.  Superindent of Child Welfare,  Victor Belknap, $250. plus $50.  restitution last week on the  grounds that he, as the legal  guardian of a 13 year old Nanaimo youth, was directly responsible for a total of 22 break-ins,  all in the Nanaimo-Parksville  area. Judge Wardill stated that  he felt the Department of Human  Resources had been negligent  in their care of the youth and that  thereby they were directly responsible for the criminal actions,    ���'  Though Wardill's'actionin $jii ���$  particular case is totally indefensible, the general policy of  holding parents responsible  for the actions of minors under  their control may prove to be-  benificial   in  helping  to  bring  of departure  the current wave of juvenile  violenye under control. Belknap  is obvoiusly unable to be personally responsible fir the 7,000  children under his care at any  given time. However, for a parent  with only one or two children  to care for, the threat of a fine  for their children's - violent  actions may improve the amount  of control and responsibility  involved in their parental guidance'. It must be made dear,  however, that parents are only  responsible when 7 they have  faded to provide proper guid-  antte. In some instances, social  anc economic factors can outweigh even the strictest parental  control.  In. the last few weeks the  Vancouver .newspapers have  been fullof problems arising from  the    rapidly    increasing    drift  towards a "Clockwork Orange"  .  mentality. A younggiri murdered  on a bet by boys barely into their  teens,   rioting  and   murder  in  Detroit caused by 13 and 14 year  old street gangs and numerous  cases  of arson,  breaking; ;and  entering etc that once again are  too often committed by those in  their early teens. The incidence  of   criminal   actions   by   those  under 18 has jumped alarmingly  in the past few years and the  trend now seems to be developing towirds a gr^rter degree o|  \ violence- and; less towards Pthe  traditional  vandalism,  breaking  and entering and auto related  incidents. .*'���'.        ;:!  The maniacal behaviour of  these youths is totally beyond  defense. Society must definitely  absorb its share of the blame  for it is obviously not only the  parents who are responsible  for creating adolescents so unr  balanced that they are willing  to act out a murder to settle a  bet. Both the parents and the  school system must be held  responsible for the actions of  those youth who have failed to  learn even the basic moral  respect for the sanity of life. If  either the parents or the government, through the appropriate departments, can be shown  to be negligent in their duties,;  then they must lie forced to at  least take on the financial burden  of their wards' actions.  Judge Wardill is at fault only  ' in  that  he chose to fine   the  individual at the head of the  beauraucracy and not the government itself. One man is not a  department, legally he may be  their guardian, but morally it  is the government of this province  which is at fault for failing to  keep the youth under control.  Juvenile delinquency will not  be brought under control by  increasing the size of our police  departments or distributing  more social workers into ' the  slums. The responsibility lies  entirely with the parent or legal  guardian and it is time that some  of them were forced to share in  the hardship caused by their  children's actions.  1     .   x..  It may just be die first step  towards de-escalating the current  wave of violence.  I met her first in a pet store on  la rue Notre Dame in Montreal.  You see, ever since I was taken  at the age of six or eight - in any  case much to old to cry - sobbing  uncontrollably from the movie  "Lassie Come Home" I have  wanted a collie dog. This pet  store had a collie pup and I had  gone to get it. In the window  of the pet store, however, were  about ten little seven-week old  pups, some of them light brown,  and some of them blade. They  were playing, wrestling and  chasing, and provided a marvellous window display of puppy  activity. One of them sat at the  back of the window, just at my  right hand as I entered the  recessed door andf there was only  a board between us. She sat  forlornly participating in none of  the puppy activities of her  brothers and sisters. I stooped  to pat her as I went in and  she stood on her hind legs,  one from foot against the board  and the other bent in supplication. Then I went and saw the  collie pup and it was ten dollars  and I had the money but just  before I closed the deal I was  drawn back to the window.  She was still sitting, there forlornly apart and when I came she  stood again on her hind legs and  raised that one bent forepaw  and I said, "What the hell;  she wants to come the most.''/  A moment later I had forsaken  the collie and had bought her  and the pet store man was saying,  "She's part Spaniel and part  Spitz," and I didn't like spaniels  and I didn't know what a spitz  was but I'd bought her anyway.  On the way home on the #78 bus  to Ville Emard she piddled down  the front of my wife's new blouse  and I wondered if I had madeja  mistake. J  ���-' A puppy is a puppy nonetheless and I grew fond of her.", I  walked her along a strip of green'  on the western outskirts of Morit-,  real between the CPR double  track railway line and the high-  ��� way west out of Montreal. In  a patch of swamp water there I  discovered she loved to swim  and taught her how to fetch  sticks. I also taught her how to sit  and heel and lie down. I taught  . her how to play dead and how to .  beg and how to fetch slippers..  Some of it was fun, some of it  some of it was for show, and some  .of it was necessary. She was good  at all of it..     ;'  I suppose I had her for a long  time,   fourteen  years  in. fact.  The first years were not easy  for her. Before she was a year old  in Montreal, hot fat was spilled  on her and left scars on  her  head, her left ear, her back and  her right side which never grew  hair again,   but because of her  adult shagginess' were. not visible to casual inspection. I skated  'over her and cut her belly badly  during that first year too, when  she ran out in front of me and I  couldn't stop. In December, 1963,  in Dawson City in the Yukon in  play she had her left eye knocked  out by a baseball bat. There  was no vet within three hundred  miles but a friend, an old man.  who had been the Canadian in  charge of the dog teams for Admiral Byrd in Antarctica in 1935,  took care of her and she survived.  A truck hit her in Dawson in  1966 and for three days I thought  her back was broken - she never  moved. On the third day when I  was steeled to dispose of her  she met me on her hind legs at  the door with bent paw.  It had been a trauma and she  was miraculously7well again.  Nothing1 bad ever happened  to her again until the end.  During the fourteen years, we  criss-crossed the continent several times - east to west, north to  south - by car, by train and by  plane. In the car on the long  distances she was always the  least conspicuous, die least .  complaining passenger. I remember a baggageman in a train  going from Montreal to the west  complaining loudly that he  couldn't have a dog in his baggage car without a muzzle, it was  regulations. I didn't have the  muzzle for her and the train was  just about to leave. I made a deal  with him. If he still felt the same  way  by the time we reached  Ottawa   I'd    somehow   get   a  * muzzle. I went back just before  we reached Ottawa about; .an  hour and a half later and found  him feeding her his sandwiches.  It happened three times with  three more baggage men across  the continent. Once in White-  horse when the airplane unloader  took her out of the baggage  belly of the airplane in the  requisite steel cage after .her  first flight he said. "Col-dam  it, I been takin' dogs off planes  here for fifteen years and I never  seen one so quiet/' She travelled  .well.  In appearance die /was unprepossessing, a small, shaggy,  scarred,   one-eyed  black   dog.  Eileen Glassford, one of the many  fine people across the continent  who came to love her, described  her in repose as looking like a  pile of mechanic's waste. Sometimes after a forest walk she -  looked like an animated, matted  section of west coast bush. She  was equally at home walking  at my heel, without ever any  leash, through the crowded  .streets of every city in Canada  west of and induding Quebec  City, or chasing rabbits on  sixty below zero Yukon hillsides, .  or struggling after my snow-  shoes in the deep snows: of the  Crowsnest Pass. She graced a  thousand - rehearsals and befriended a thousand actors.  In   social  situations     she  was  always inconspicuous, but when  noticed well worth noticing.  In a turbulent fourteen years  she was my only constant. SJhe  out-lasted a marriage, many  friendships and all other relationships. She pre-dated and  out-lasted several of my reputations.  Last week we came home from  Gibsons to find her dead. In her  fourteenth year .die was deaf  and blind on the left side and a  car had caught her. Around the  shaggy black corpse was a group  of crying children, the eldest erf  whom had never known a world  without that shaggy black dbg .  in it. ,  Her name was Pogo. She was  my friend. ���',-  Pender Harbour Perspective  Yes   folks,   this   is   another;  intensely,    interesting    column  cataloguing the many and varied  activities of P.H. citizens! At the'  outset, though, I should perhaps  explain to all you Pender Harbour  readers (and the rest of you. who  get your vicarious entertainment  reading about the gay mad whirl  up here!) that this column will  attempt to reveal harbour, happenings   not: usually   reported  upon. So, should you know of any  activities   or.  want'   your   own  reported, please let me know and  I shall be glad to oblige. In Jhe  true spirit of; Pender Harbour  tales, any offerings you may have  need not be substantiated truth'.  Well known Canadian poet,  Pat Lane, has just recentiy  returned to his home in Pender  Harbour after teaching a summer  course in Creative Writing ''at  Notre Dame University. An .ac-7  complished writer with numerous  books already published, Pat tells  me he is now busy preparing a  new book for press. The Albino  Pheasant is expected to be released late in the fell, it will;  of course, be available at all  outlets on the coast. More about  that when it happens.  In the continuing saga of Al  Meneely and his hatchery, it  appears that while Mr. Meneely  was away a few weeks back  1200 pounds of spring and coho  stock disappeared from their  sea pens at Moccasin Valley  Marifarms. A reliable source in  Egmont claims that the pens  revealed no holes and the phen-  . omena could not be explained by  natural causes. Apparently  more than the fish on this coast  have to struggle for survival.  Smoke signs to the side to the  government   wharf  in  Egmont  indicate .some new venture  in  its initial stages there. Unsubstantiated rumor has it that the-  site is slated for another marina, 7  but   perhaps    some   informed 7  Egmontonian  could verify  that  for us.  Sue Kammerle, manager of the  P.H.

But if this kind of dung had  been publicized in Britain (that  dog loving country) both the  perptrator of the design and the  person responsible for having  it printed in a paper, would  have surely been lynched. .7  Anyway, the whole thing was  in the most abominable taste  to put it as mildly as possible.  Disgustedly yours,,  Ms.G.E.Webb  Editor:  While I do not necesarily agree  with   the   approach   taken   by  Sechelt  Council   regarding  the  sewer question, I should like to  object to some comments attributed to me in the August  31st issue of the Coast News.  I did not withdraw from the  Sechelt Vicinity Study, as you  put it because of "the current  Sewer proposal situation and the  projected development of the  Sechelt urban centre."  In fact, I am quite satisfied  with the draft proposals of a  plan for the Sechelt urban centre.  I am not, however, happy with  the approach taken by some  members of the Secheit Vicinity  Study Committee regarding the  question of Porpoise Bay.  I believe Porpoise Bay to be  ecologically very sensitive.  Therefore massive development  ofthe area surrounding it should  be handled with peat care and  only when alternative, less  fragile areas have been made  use of. However, I 4m quite  prepared to modify my approach  if ad objective careful evaluation  of the problem proves me wrong.  I do not think it possible to  obtain such evaluation as long as  a major property owner of the  area! is on the committee and  actively supports development  without being prepared to study  alternatives.  - 1 agree with others that believe that answers for the planning of the greater Sechelt area  have to be found now and not  in (some distant future. This  should not give-us tiie right to  rashly follow ourown prejudices.  j  ��� ... ��� Peter Hoemburg  Halfmoon Bay  Editor:  Dr. Lome Berman, who wrote  an excellent letter on ah- traffic  noi^e, August 18, 1976 has my  fulfj support. I fed it is a fair  summary of the conditions that  prevailed all spring and summer  since the black-topping of the  Gibsons-Sechelt airport. With the  flying school operating out of the  airport for three months this  summer, there was a constant  roar of engines over my home in  Davis Bay from six am on Saturdays and Sundays until late in  the day, plus on several occasions  ' night flying until midnight.  All I can say is that tfs a  shattering ecperienoe to live in  the Davis Bay and Mission  Point areas (our friend quoted,  feels the same about the Roberts  Creek area); to have had so much,  or I should say, to have had so  much, and now so little. Surely  something can be done about  this.  Perhaps the flight patterns  can be changed so that tiie private  planes take off from the airstrip  and swing north over the mountains, instead of directly over the  residential areas. In any event,  let's try to come to some happier  .compromise.  D.Daiy  Sechelt, B.C.

An all too rare opportunity to flex the muscles of one's  mind and reach out for, even if  not grasp, concepts and ideas  which have exercised the minds  of scientists and philosophers  since recorded time and probably before.  "The centre of Immensities,  the Search for Truth and the  Rediscovery of Faith" juxtaposes  the thoughts of renowned astronomer Sir Bernard Lovell  with scientific and theological  commentary, using radio techniques to stimulate an exciting,  mind expanding high in the  listener.  The same sort of experience  must have inspired Siegfried  Sassoon to write:  "When Wisdom tells me that  the world's a speck  Lost on the shoreless blue of  God's Today;  I smile and think, 'For every man  his way,  The world's my ship,  and I'm  alone on deck!'  And when he tells me that the  world's a spark  Lit in the  whistling  gloom  of  God's tonight;  I look within me to the edge of  dark,  And dream, 'The world's my field  and I'm the lark  Alone with upward song, alone  with light'."  Themes and Variations change  from its usual format to present  a dramatization of J.S.Bach's  early years. The conflicts and  small triumphs are vividly portrayed in '"ITae Years at Arnstad"  four of the world's leading Bach  specialist have been sought out  to help understand the creative  thrust and tensions in Bach's  life. The programme illustrates  the range of his compositions and  the timelessness with interpretations by the ConcentusMusicous  of Vienna performing on 15th  and 16th century instruments  to the delightfully contemporary  Swingle Singers.  Bach is played by Jim Paulson  with Robert Christie j��s * Bux-  tehude; Maria Corvin'7&s M'ha .;.  Margaret Buxtehude and~ Jatk  Mather as Feldhaus. Eric Robertson, organist.

Discipline  was a concern of the Egyptians  when building the Pyramids, and  is pertinent to us today. Millions  of words have been written on  its behalf, and I expect will continue to be written.  All of us good moms and dads  know that we can't bring up our  darlings without discipline. If  we didn't train children for adulthood the world would run amok.  We would be living in chaos, well  things would be more a mess than  they are. I believe that disciplining a youngster is an aid to the  ' maturing process.  ' Take me for instance, as a child  I had very little discipline, now  as an adult I have difficulty with  self-discipline. I envy all those  people who say that they are  going to do something and then  are able to make sure that it gets  done. You don't get that ability  from reading a book. Oh, the  lessons we spend our life learning. The sad part is that we  usually pass on our shortcomings  to our poor unsuspecting kids.  Discipline can sound so ugly,  like punishment, but is it? In  teaching discipline at an early  stage of ones life, are we not  really doing that person a favor?  People who are successful are  the ones with the ability to  adhere to discipline, self imposed  or otherwise. There are a lot  of unsuccessful people walking  around saying why me?  The time has come to stop  scratching and start using our  heads. We have to look at where  we are in our lives, get out the  biggest magnifying glass that  we can find and really examine  ourselves. It's always time to  evaluate where we are, what we  are, and what we are going'to.  do about it. This dose scrutiny  takes discipline, most people  would rather not see what they  are.  It takes courage to see the  truth, the discipline comes, in  changing things that we aren't  happy with in ourselves. All the  words in the world don't hold a  candle to action. We have to  work like crazy.  As we discipline our  children we must also discipline  ourselves, for we are also children, of.God; Discipline doesn't  have to be everyone doing the  goose step) just a constant  remembering what we want,  from our lives, and making  sure that we get it.

Sunnycrest Plaza, Gibsons  Phone 886-2201  I,  ,\  i  L  si  I Sunshine Coast News, September 7,1976  5  Two long-time residents of the  Peninsula came out last week  with books of poetry, published  by Harbour Publishing in Pender  Harbour. ,  The first, in order of seniority  and the alphabet is 'Whittlings*  by Hubert Evans, resident of Roberts Creek for almost fifty years.  Evans has had a long and varied  career as a writer and journalist.  During the depression he raised ;  . his family at Roberts Creek with  the aid of a large garden and with  his writing as his 'cash crop'. His  best known book is the moving  novel'Mist on the River'.  'Whittlings' is Evans' first appearance in print as a poet - no  mean feat for an octogenarian.  The book is charming, the poems  deft, gentle and wise. On every  page there is something erf delight  and the reader will have his own  favourites.  Perhaps the eye will be caught  by the short poem 'Flower Children': "They came starry eyed  from the city/to walk with Na-  ture./But only to her ehqseitf  would she give her hand/Has the  recent back to the earth movement been anywhere so gently, so  aptly summed up? Perhaps the  moving poems oh aging, among  them the moving 'Sortings' and'  the humorous "These Gomes a  Time* will be among the favoured. It may be that the metaphysical 'Thoughts While Thinning Carrots' will catch die eye.  Whatever the individual preferences this is a book, like the  man who wrote h, that is a privilege to know. The book is avail-'  able at local book outlets.     ,  The second poet appearing  with a book is Peter Trower..  As mentioned in a Coast News  story last week, this is Trower's  third book of poems. It is called  'The Alders and Others' and rep-:  resents something of a departure  in that it contains some of Trower's previously unpublished city  poems. Hubert Evans' comment  upon making the acquaintance of  this book was "By God, I didn't  think old Pete had it in him.  There's nothing better being writ-  ten in Canada than some of this>  ,' stuff. I'm proud to know him."/  7 Trower does, at last seem to.be  moving towards the due recognition that has been denied him  by the academic-dominated  poetry world of Canada. His wots:,  is in the .first rank along with o-  ther anti-academic, poets who  in recent years have been moving to the forefront of Canadian  poetry including recent Governor  General's Award winner Milton  ^Acorn, Al Purdy, and Madeira  Park resident Pat Lane.' Working  separately and in scattered locations these men have each evolved a philosophy which might be  described as being intent on moving poetry out of the ivory-  towered universities and giving it  ���backtothecommonman.  . 11ns book, 'Alders and Others'  is a precursor of a larger manu  script , Trower is preparing for  McLelland-Stewart which will  present a broader perspective of  the poet's work than the logging  poetry he has been known for  primarily heretofore. Among the  most striking are 'The Popcorn  Man', 'Appointed Rounds', and  'Children's Ward'. Of loca interest is the poem by Trower called  fa ���  'Sailor' which is a moving tribute  to his friend Grant Cattanach of  Gibsons who died last year.  "The Alders and Others' is also  available locally.

TED HUME:  i j  SERVICES !  The Gibsons Old Age Pensioner' new Harmony Hall is  rapidly ' approaching completion. The impressive, modernistic new hall is proceeding right  on schedule and should be completed on or very dose to the  projected finishing date of  September 22nd.  The 3.7 acre site for the hall  was donated by the village  council towards the latter part of  1974. Construction was started  on June 6th,1975.  O.A.P. President Jim Holt  estimated that the entirely  volunteer work crew off senior  citizens had put in a total of  6,500 man hours in the construction of the hall. Kfembers^  of the work crew have induded  Jim   Holt,   Vic   Eckstein,    Ed  Connor, Dick Oliver, Len Coates,  and Jules Sorenson. Ed Connor  has functioned' as site foreman  throughout the project.  "The Harmony HaU work  crew has worked with harmony  throughout the project,'' said  President Holt. "I hope that  harmony will prevail among the  members who come to enjoy  the use ofthe hall."  President Holt said that the  materials for the construction  of Harmony Hall were virtually  all bought on die Peninsula  with at least 75% of them being  purchased right here in Gibsons:  The construction crew were  unanimous in their expression  of appreciation' for the oo-operrj  atibn they Had received from local  merchants     induding     Quest  Electric who did the electrical  work and Ray Coates Plumbing  for the plumbing fixtures. Mr.  Holt also strongly expressed  his appreciation for the cooperation of Mayor. Labonte  the Village Council for the assistance offered by Fred Holland,  the village Worits Superintendent.  The hall is readied enough  that the O. A.P meeting scheduled  for September 7th wiD be held  there at 2:00 pm. Harmony Hall  is located in the Bay area halfway along the unamed lane -  perhaps Harmony Lane? - which,  is bounded by Bums, Cochrane  and Franklin Roads.

Sunshine Coast News, September 7,1976  Riigby club now practicing  Local carver Ernie Burnett is  shown with some of his recent  work displayed at the Craft  Fair last weekend. Burnett has  been a resident of this area for  several years. He used to live  at the Government Wharf a-  bout ten years ago in a beautifully crafted houseboat of his  own construction before moving on to his property on  Lockyer Road.  Originally he intended his  property to be a show place for  visitors with landscaping and  an artificial pond. On the property he had a show plaoe for  his carvings. A few years ago  he constructed an elegant  yacht on the property.  Among his other notable  achievements is the landscaping around St. Mary's Hospital in Sechelt.  Burnett is an enthusiastic  ham radio operator. His call  sign is WOODCARVER.  dampens craft fair  More local tremors  Earth tremors were reported  in the local area again last week.  The tremors were recorded at  6:30 am last Thursday morning.  Local old-time resident A.C.  Smith of the S-bends phoned  the Coast News to report having  felt   the   tremors.   They   were  subsequently reported on Vancouver radio stations.  Smith said he noticed about  three distinct tremors. This report  is the latest of several movements  in the earth's surface recorded  in this area this year.  The annual Fall Craft Fair  sponsored by tiie Coast Family  Society took place last weekend at  the Recreational Grounds in  Roberts Creek. Due to inclement  weather the.number of booths  was somewhat reduced from pre-,  ious years but the booths that  were there made a brave showing  in the rain.  Considering the weather there  was a good variety of locally  produced craft items being displayed. They included displayes  of vegetables and doughnut  stands, shirts and jewellery  made locally, stained glass work  from WHtaker House, the Hour  Corner Store from Roberts Creek  had a nice selection of herbs and  clothing displayed. A taco stand  tried to summon up visions of  Mexico in the green and dripping  glade.  Other notable features included  pottery and oil lamps and batik  work. Local carver Ernie Burnett  displayed his splendid wood carvings. Popular with the younger  citizens and a new feature this  year were the horeseback rides  along the trail of the recreation  centre.  ���i The fair continued for two days  and deserved better luck with  the weather than it received.

But if you  travel to the West Kootenay  town of Rossland. you'U find their  stones tied closely together.  What binds them are the  mountains near this town, sister  community to Trail. It was on the  slopes of Red Mountain back in  the 1890's that the mining claims  that led to Rossland's boom years  were staked. And it was on the  slopes of Red and Granite mountains that a young skier who was  to become world champion learned her sport.  Now the stories of Nancy  Greene and the mines are told  graphically in the exhibits at  the Rossland Museum and Le Roi  Mine.  The miner's story came first. In  July of 1890, prospectors Joe  Bourgeois and Joe Morris staked  five claims on Red Mountain.  They went to Nelson to register  their claims, giving one of them -  the Le Wise- to the deputy mining  recorder instead of paying him  the S12.S0 recording fee..  In one of those ironies that  abound in British Columbia's  mining history, the Le Wise -  renamed the Le Roi - turned out  to be the richest of the five  claims, yielding $30 million  in gold and copper ore in it's forty  years of activity. The mining  recorder sold his interest for  $30,000, a good profit on his  $12.50 investment.  Le Roi and the other four claims  were the centre of the copper-  gold mining boom that created  Rossland. There were 3,000  people there in 1895, 7,000 at  the peak in 1897, before the boom  burst and the town went into  decline.  Cominco, the minig giant that  sustains Rossland and Trail  today, bought the Le Roi in 1910;  it was phased out in 1928, although some desultory mining  activity continued.  Today's visitors can descend  into the Le Roi and take a trip into  the minig past. Garbed in blanket  capes as protection agaujst the  constant temperature of 50C,  they walk one of the mine's  tunnels to see displays of the  drills and other equipment that  challenged the rock of Red  Mountain. Guides demonstrate  the equipment and tell the story  of theLe Roi.  Outside the mine, equipment  and chunks of rock from the mine  are on display.  in the museum buildings  themselves, more of Rossland's  histoiy is presented. A wing  opened just this year is devoted  entirely to bottles from the 1895 -  1910 era, all of them unearthed  in the Rossland area. There were  probably a lot of bottles to choose  from: at it's peak, the town  housed 42 hotels and saloons,  four breweries and three wholesale liquor outlets.  The other part of the museum  leaves mining behind but stays  close to the mountains. It is  devoted to the career of world'  championship doer Nancy:  Greene, who was raised in Rossland and learned to ski at Red and  Granite mountains.  The museum houses Nancy's  skis and some of her ski clothes,  skiing medals including the  1968 Olympic gold and silver  earned in the giant slalom and  slalom, and the 1967 and 1968  World Cups.  The Rossland Museum and Le  Roi Mine are open daily, mid-  May to October.  Delightful rum cake  V,  If you're looking for a dessert  that combines all of the best:  new ideas in cake baking and  easy preparation, with foolproof results, try a Bacardi  Rum Cake. This exceptional  cake is a pudding cake baked in  a ring pan and flavored with  dry Bacardi light-amber rum. You  can get a really elegant cake  with the addition of a little  whipped cream topping and the  artful placement of pecan halves.  The recipe is easy. Just  sprinkle chopped pecans or walnuts in the bottom of a well  greased pan, and, after mixing  all the remaining cake ingredients, pour over the sprinkled  nuts. Then bake one hour.  (The full recipe follows). Adding  pudding mix to a cake recipe  assures that your cake will be  moist for days so you can confidently bake one well in advance  of a party and cut down on last  minute preparations. The real  star of the recipe is Bacardi  Rum. A half-cup goes into the  cake mix, and, although, the  alcohol in the rum evaporates  during the baking, the delicous  mellow flavor of the rum remains.  It's  your  'secret  ingredient',  and your guests will demand the  recipe as they come back for  seconds. The Bacardi people  speak form experience on that  point since they've been testing  reactions to the cake for the past  several months. Through a mail-  in survey, Bacardi learned that  the cake has been served at  bridge clubs, church socials,  special parties and for family  desserts. The response to the  . cake has been overwhelming,  with descriptions such as 'terrific'  'marvelous', and 'elegant'. Many  have noted with pleasure the  reactions of others to the cake  with the 'secret ingredient.'  As a ring cake with a simple  glaze topping, the Bacardi Rum  Cake is adaptable to all kinds of  uses. It is just right to offer to  mid-afternoon or early evening  guests, and it makes- a great  snack for after lunch or midnight. And, if you are the one who  has to provide the dessert at a  Pot Luck dinner, this cake will  arrive just as moist and attractive  as when you made it in your  kitchen and is sure to be a hit  with everyone.  Here is the complete recipe:  CAKE  1 cup chopped nuts  118% oz pkg. yellow cake mix  1   3V*   oz   pkg   instant  vanilla  pudding  4 eggs  Vi cup vegetable oil  Vi cup cold water  Vt cup Bacardi light-amber rum  Preheat oven to 325 F. Grease  flour a 10 inch tube pan or 12  cup Bundt��   pan. Chop the nuts  and sprinkle them evenly over the  bottom of the pan.  Mix the cake mix, pudding, eggs,  vegetable oil and water together  in a mixing bowl. Stir in the Vi  cup of light-amber dry Bacardi  rum.  Pour the batter over the chopped  nuts and bake on the middle rack  of the 325 degree oven for one .  hour.  GLAZE  Va lb butter  V* cup water  1 cup sugar  '/* cup Bacardi light-amber rum  While the cake is baking, take  Vi lb of butter and melt in a  sauce pan. Add Vi cup of water  and 1 cup of sugar. Boil for five  minutes, stirring contstantly.  Allow to cool and stir in Vi cup of  rum.  Remove the cake from the oven  and set on a rack to cool. When  cool, invert onto a serving plate  and prick the top of the cake  {where the chopped nut layer is)  with a fork and drizzle the glaze  evenly over the top. allowing it  to soak into the cake.  The cake is now ready to eat  and enjoy, and with its moist  texture and delicous taste, any  additions you choose should be  primarily for decoration. For  instance, you may add whipped  cream and halved pecans, or  dust lightly with confectioners  sugar and garnish with powdered  fruit such as grapes or cherries  '(paint fruit with egg white and  roll in confectioners sugar).  The folks at Bacardi would like  to hear from you after you've  tried their cake. Their address is  ���FBM Distisllery Co. Ltd, Box  368, Brampton, Ontario, L6v  2L3.
