' XXy-XX^- .$ '���'.���''   "7.- .���  "X.  . toSL. ��, ^.;.; > ^ii<i  School Board starts 1977 witK itiarathon session  A long and interesting agenda  faced the trustees of School  District #46 at their inaugural  meeting held on Thursday,  January 13th, in the library of  Gibsons. Elementary School. In  addition to the swearing in of  re-elected and newly-elected trustees, Clayton, Precesky, and  Dombroski, and the election of a  chairman and vice-chairman, the  meeting heard reports on the  various stages of school construction going on in the district, an  address by John Lowther of the  Department of Education and a  report from Ed Nicholson, Coordinator of Special Education.  Celia Fisher has been re-elected as the Board Chairman for  the coming year. Trustee Maureen Clayton has been designated  Vice-Chairman.  In the matter of school construction, CM Project Ltd. reported to the School Board that  the construction of Chatelech  Junior Secondary School was now  substantially completed though  some improvements have still  to be made to the gymnasium  floor. This work will probably  be done during the Easter vacation. The problem with the sanitary sewer line at the Sechelt  school has been eliminated by the  use of pumps of another manufacture. CM Projects also reported that the construction of  Sechelt Elementary (Gymnasium  was at a temporary standstill  pending a decision on the type of  flooring to be used. In the case of  the Pratt Road Elementary  School, trustees were, informed  that tenders for the project had  clbsed somewhat over-rbudget.  Attempts will be made to reduce  the overage.  The address by John Lowther  of the Department of Education  was on the topic of Goals of the  Core Curriculum, Lowther said  that there was some concern  in the provincial educational  department   that   the   last   few  years had seen too much permissiveness in the curriculum of  provincial schools. "We feel  that there has been too much  emphasis on creativity, on students doing 'their own thing',"  he said. He carried with him  copies of a pamphlet produced by  the provincial government entitled "What Should Our Children Be Learning?". It would  appear from the booklet that what  the government has in mind is a  return towards more traditional  teaching subject matter.  Some skepticism towards the  booklet and the program was  expressed by both local trustees  and teachers. Trustee Spikerman  offered his opinion that the pamphlet being distributed was nothing more nor less than a political  document, and local teacher  Roger Douglas commented that  he wished the district had available some of the funds that had  gone into producing the pamphlet.  Ed Nicholson, Co-ordinator of  Special Education spoke to the  meeting explaining the goals and  techniques of the Special'Education division. , He described  Special Education as being ���.the,,  reserve defence of the educational system. "We are at the  moment concerned with the at-  risk, or atypical child," he said,  "though we hope to be able to  broaden our frame of reference  to include special consideration  for the gifted child who may not  be sufficiently challenged by the  regular classroom offering.  Nicholson said that the boon of  Special Education was that. it  enabled educators to concentrate  on the individual child more  adequately 'and identify his/her  problems.  It was almost eleven o'clock  when the long meeting ended  with the trustees gallantly carrying on in an in-camera session.  opinions  This week the Coast News  introduces a new column "Street  Talkin", a product of the energies  and imaginations of students of  the Gibsons Alternate School.  Each week students, under the  direction of advisors Ken Dalg:  leish and Peter Cawsey, will be  conducting interviews with  a random sampling of local people  asking questions centering  around those /topics and issues  which affect our coastal community.  If you are interviewed but don't  find your views in print, please  understand that the column is  trying to present a wide assortment of ideas and might leave  out certain interviews in order  to show diversity of opinion.  ���������������������:���:���:���  ���-���-���-���-�����>��i<  Street Talkin'  QUESTION:  What do you think about the new Gibsons Mall?  Mrs. Ida Lowther  "I think' it's a waste of  money if you ask me. I don't  know whether Gibsons needed all that or not...there's  probably other things it  needs worse than a big fancy '  classy mall. That might be  alright in Vancouver somewhere, but I don't think it  fits every place either. I  was talking to a man who  worked on the mall and he  said, "Talk about a waste  of space..." And the rent,  they say the rent is unreal."  Nets Moore  "I think it's a good thing  to have in a community this  size. It's a good building,  it's nice shopping up there.  I think it's probably a few  years ahead of its time but  we're happy to have it."  Jan Hil/erud  "Well, for myself I think  it's a rather good idea I'll  be working up there and it'll  be a bit more income for  me.       There's   a   familiar  feeling there because it's  very much like the suburban  shopping centres in Vancouver and whether that's good  or bad depends on how you  feel about those situations."  Carmen White  "I think it's the most  average mall I've ever seen.  I've shopped there but there  is really nothing outstanding  about it at all...it's exactly  like malls everywhere."  Bob Beaupre  "I just hope there's  enough economic base here  to support it....because it's  a pretty costly mall, alot of  these shopkeepers are  paying alot more rent than  other store keepers in Gibsons and Is there enough  money here to keep everybody alive? I sure hope so.  It looks pretty slick. I'll be  working here in Trail Bay  Sports as soon as It gets  finished."  The Sunshine Coast Regional District regular board meeting  of January 13th was the scene of a heated discussion over adoption of the Gambier Island Official Community Plan - Bylaw  #110, 1976. The stated purpose of which is "to set out, in  general terms, the areas for various types of land and water  use (and) to provide guidelines for both governmental and individual decisions regarding the future development of the  island."  Area "F" representative, Bernie Mulligan expressed concern  that the plan, if passed in its present form, contains bylaws  which were not advantageous to the community as a whole as  they overlook the role that Gambier Island plays in the total  economic base of Area "F", Gibsons, and Sechelt. Of particular concern to director Mulligan were bylaws:  5.8 "To prohibit extension of log booming, sorting, and storage, and encourage relocation where necessary, to produce  the least environmental damage and conflict with adjacent  land uses." 6.4.3 "Removing log booms from waters where  there are significant changes to marine growth as a result of  their presence." "Where good beach areas are rendered inacessible by off-shore log booms, these booms should  be removed in the very near future."  Mulligan hastened to point out  that were the letter of the law  carried out as stated therein, the  Island residents, who are 90%  summer residents, could go directly to Victoria (by-passing the  S.C.R.D.) to affect moves that  would slowly squeeze out the log  storage and log booming industry  which generates a payroll of  about one-half of the C.F.P.,  Port Mellon pulp mill and is very  important to the Sunshine Coast.  He presented a letter, from L & K  Log Sorting Co. which read in  , part that the loss of water storage  leases because of "restrictions in  available flat land for dry-land  sort "would force them to consider closing down" their operation. He also spoke of Rivtow  Strait's proposal to reldcate their  \ where rthey'hbwTiave stmage-k-^.,.-y-.  "We  can't  afford  to  take   a  chance",  he said,   "we cannot  turn this thing into another Stanley Park to accomodate the city  of Vancouver!"  Area "B" representative Peter  Hoemberg felt that since the plan  had been already a year and a  half in preparation and a refusal  now to adopt it could result in  a further years delay, it would be  more effective to adopt the plan,  subject to amendment.  "If we do not reconsider an  adoption now we will literally  have to start from scratch," he  said. "We are going to throw  away a tremendous amount of  work, a large part of which you  (Mulligan) are in agreement'  with!" Director Hoemberg con-,  tinually stressed adoption of the  plan, suggested amendments to  re-word the bylaws to make them  -���acceptable, and proposed "an im-  mediate start on a study of the  question of industrial uses along  Howe Sound.  "I cannot see any  where in the bylaw any suggestion that what the community  plan is attempting to do is eliminate booming grounds." he  stated.  Area "F" alternate director  Don Head read into the record  a letter from the Lands Department in Victoria in reply' to an  inquiry from the Island Trust  regarding lot 5310 (a lease  holding in West Bay) that it was  covered by "a ten-year lease  which must be honoured unless  the lessee is not abiding by the  lease agreement, for this reason  no preferral could be made..".  You appear to have two somewhat  conflicting objectives in mind by  getting the log storage out..:I  question whether public usage;  marinas, etc. wouldn't be more  biologically degrading than log  storage."  Community planner Robyn  Addison stated these inquiries  were made with a view to protecting the estuary at the head of  the bay.    "The members of the  Island Trust have identified certain natural areas'as important  ecological areas," she said,  "irrespective 'of the pian, the  Trust is going to have that  opinion."  After an hour of fruitless debate, Sechelt Alderman Morgan  Thompson     interjected,      "Mr.  Chairman.    I've    heard    these  gentlemen discuss this thing long  enough...the wording of the bylaw is immaterial, we're concerned with the future of log sorting  and booming in the Gambier and  West  Howe   Sound  areas,   and  : rightly so.*..We must7be carefulj-  to protect our industry.!'   : The;  discussion was tabled until the'  next meeting. ���  These are the students of Gibsons  Alternate Education who will be working  on the new feature "Street Talkin' "  which appears for the first time in this  edition.

Oops!  t  In the hustle and the bustle  and the rash of potting oat oar  little weekly newspaper It Is Inevitable that even with the maximum  vigilance occasionally error will  be committed. With this In mind  the management of the Coast  News feels that It can do no better  than to resuscitate a long time  feature of the Coast News - the  Oops    column. Accordingly  let these errors which appeared  In these pages last week be noted  along with their attendant apologies to those concerned.  We ran Into our first difficulty  with the first baby of the year,  for whom we had waited nil oar  second Issue of the year. The  ever-helpful and charming personnel of St. Mary's Hospital  helped us to our first error. The  first baby was actually young  Heather Loden, daughter of Constable Les Loden and his wife  Marlene. We extend our apologies to Heather and her parents.  The second error we managed  all by ourselves. We reported  that the first meeting of the Regional Board went "in camera"  to discuss their salaries. We were  sternly rebuked by Director  Hoemberg. The "In camera"  session was actually to discuss  staff salaries at the Regional  Office.

I ���  .��3&SsSi&fe8i3��$i&SBi^^  Regional Board  i.. ���  It is to be regretted that the current  version of the Regional Board has so soon  found its way into deadlock on virtually  the first piece of business that has come  before it. The question of the Gambier  Island Community Plan is a complex one  involving sharing jurisdiction between  the Regional District and the provincially  sponsored Island Trust. The Island Trust  is a body charged with the responsibility  of ensuring that the main islands in the  Gulf of Georgia, including most of the  Gulf Islands and including Gambier,  Keats and Bowen Islands, retain their  individual character against the many-  headed monster called progress.  Insofar as Gambier Island is concerned  the Island Trust consists of three provincial appointees and two elected trustees,  Mrs. Negroponte and Mrs. Dombrowski.  The present Gambier Island Official  Community Plan has been almost two  years in the making involving discussions  between the Island 'lust, the Regional  District, the Lands Branch in Victoria.  It has also included representation of the  companies that hold the booming ground  leases, namely Ron Johnson of Rivtow.  The plan as it stands is undoubtedly  imperfect. Most plans are in their initial  stages.       The   segments   which   have  aroused most controversy concerning the  possible relocation of the booming  grounds where such should prove beneficial to the islands and the question of  passage through booming grounds where  deemed advisable to provide access to  the beach from the water would appear  to be in the province of the Island Trust  and it is not clear how fulminations at  the Regional District can serve any useful  purpose.  Undoubtedly the intentions of Trustee  Mulligan in raising the issue are motivated by a desire to safeguard the interests  of his area wherein the booming grounds  are located. There is, however, a tendency on the part of newly-elected members to governing bodies at all levels to  play the role of the new broom which will  sweep clean and it would appear in this  case that Trustee Mulligan's zeal has  outrun a more rational reaction to the  problem  Nothing worthwhile for the district or  Mulligan's area of the district can be  achieved by the introduction of emotionalism and obstructionism into the deliberations of the Regional District. It is possible that in this case Trustee Mulligan's  zeal to serve the people of his area may  have outrun his good judgement.  School Board  The official opening of Chatelech  Junior Secondary School in Sechelt and  Elphinstone Secondary School in''Gibsons, both of which took place on Saturday, January 15th, surely marks the end  of a most trying period in the educational  history of this district. Since the old  Elphinstone Secondary burned down  three and a half years ago the trustees,  teachers, and students of this area have  had a most challenging time.  For the trustees, in the words of the  title of Hugh Garner's autobiography, it  has been just one damn thing after  another. Their workload as public servants has been greatly increased with all  ofthe planning committee work that overseeing the construction of new schools  in these days of construction strikes and  sky-rocketing prices entails, a heavy  one indeed. Nothing, of course, was  made easier by the subsequent fire last  year which destroyed the secondary  school at Pender Harbour.    The indivi  duals on this board and the last who  laboured so long to right the educational  difficulties deserve the gratitude of the  entire community.  For the teachers and students on the  lower half of the Sunshine Coast it must  be a great relief to be freed at last from  the permutations of overcrowding,  shift systems, and damp trudges from  classroom to classroom which has been  their lot for the last few years. We can be  sure that everyone at this end can fully  sympathize with their colleagues at Pender Harbour Secondary still struggling to  maintain educational quality in a makeshift situation. Both teachers and students have done remarkably well in situations of considerable difficulty and are to  be congratulated.  The Coast News does so congratulate  all concerned and trusts that we stand  now on the verge of a time when all of  us can take justifiable pride in the education that we provide for our young.  .from the files of Coast News  5 YEARS AGO  In response to an appeal for grain for  the growing number of wild ducks in the  Lower Bay, the local wildlife organization  donated 100 lbs. of grain to be distributed  to them.  At a school board meeting, Trustee  W. Nimmo, confounded by the inaction  of those involved in deciding what to  do with the ditch along the highway in  front of Elphinstone School, decided the  best thing to do with it was to fill it full  of alligators and make it a tourist attraction.  Mrs. Hodgson is recovering well, following 10 days in a coma as the result  of head injuries.  10 YEARS AGO  Witnesses wanted: Sechelt R.C.M.P.  are seeking witnesses who saw the tug  Gulf Master before rescue operations  started, as the result of the sinking of the  vessel with the loss of 5 lives.

If he had not hit it he and his  car would have been in deep trouble.  15 YEARS AGO  The Volunteer Fire Department of  Gibsons is now 25 years old.  Danny Wheeler's Imperial Oil tank  truck caught fire at Hopkins Landing  shortly before 8:00 a.m. Wednesday  morning and was damaged considerably.  20 YEARS AGO  Heroic efforts of Orrin Watson, 48  year old tractor operator to save the lives  of three persons trapped in a small car  which plunged off the road into Ruby  Lake, was told to a coronor's jury in  Sechelt.

Normally I  abhor bumper stickers but I  invariably read them. This one  said: "This car has travelled the  Alaska Highway". I looked at the  car. Yup, it looked like it had  travelled the Alaska Highway  alright. The windscreen was  starred in half a dozen places by  thrown gravel and rocks arid the:  lower part of the body looked like  it had been peppered with shotgun fire. Underneath, I knew, ifi  'Hooked I would "find 'great 'dents|-  and assorted metallic wounds in*  the structure.  The Alaska Highway! I shuddered a great and heartfelt  shudder. For those of you who  are fortunate enough not to know,  the Alaska Highway starts at  Dawson Creek in the north-east  corner of B. C. and meanders  off through the muskeg and  mountain generally north. All  but the first eighty-four miles of  it are unpaved, or at least were in  the sixties and I doubt that much  more is paved today. It was constructed by the American Army  with more urgency than finesse  during the Second World War  when it was feared the Japanese  might invade Alaska - though 1  myself always thought the Japanese had more sense than do  any such thing.  You will, I am sure, have  gathered through this somewhat  wordy preamble that I have some  personal acquaintance with the  monster. Indeed I dp, indeed I  do. Between August of 1963 and  August of 1968 I drove nine hundred miles of it to Whitehorse,  Y.T. and then a subsidiary side  road - also, of course, gravel -  a further three hundred and forty  miles to Dawson City a total of  six times.  I hated it the first time. It was  absolutely dreadful. Nothing in  my previous knowledge of men,  machines, or geography had prepared me for such a journey. If  you ask me why, then, why did I  drive it five more times I'm afraid  I can only shrug in total perplexity  at the follies of man.  The first time I was on my initial journey to the north, an idealistic young teacher with a hunger  for romantic, places who had just  got a job in Dawson City where  the Klondike Gold Rush had  taken place. Not too long before  that I had acquired a wife and  baby daughter. The job in Dawson City I had acquired by dint  of diligent effort. . The wife and  ������:��:?x-S>:?:-:��:%S:^  ���*  j.  daughter I had acquired rather  more absent-mindedly. I was  driving a Riley One Point Five  which I remember as being, despite its name, a rather sedate  little English sedan quite suitable  for a young family and school  teacher in the city. Perhaps just  a shade of sprightliness in its  going to please my yearning romantic heart. It had been a veteran of several Montreal winters  when I bought it and between  the floor and the ground much of  it had been corroded away. In  addition we were very new at the  ifusiness of travelling -long 3js^  dances as a family unit and had  not yet discovered the blessed  relief of sending much of your  belongings on ahead. As a consequence we set out for Dawson  City with this poor little grey  car piled high both inside and outside with sewing machines and  baby thingies and a thousand  other articles of mysterious import which had recently entered  my life.  We struggled through the  prairies, only once running out  of gas in a head-wind just east  of Alberta, made it to the Sunshine Coast for the first time  where we visitied with my cousin  Betty Duncan and family in Gibsons before setting off for the  north. Inside the car, we had the  baby and the dog in the back  seat. The baby carriage top  wouldn't fit in our tiny car so  we had put the hood of it on to  a Chiquita banana box which took  care of the baby - sometimes.  The dog, the ever patient Pogo,  had a spot she disappeared into  up near the roof in the back corner on top of the sleeping bags.  The baby was two months old and  was being bottle fed. We put  sweetened milk into one end of  her and it re-appeared just twenty  external inches later and what  she had done to it by that time I  never could get used to - or  escape."  One of the principal facts about  the Alaska Highway is that it  can be murderous no matter  the weather. If it has been raining it loses its top surface rapidly  under the pounding of heavy  vehicles, becomes full of incredible potholes and you are being  consistently sprayed by passing  vehicles with gravel and mud. If  the sun has been shining for more  than two or three days the road  dries out and again the pounding  loosens the surface and the passing cars will spray you with  gravel and an occasional rock and  you travel constantly in a blinding  cloud of dust. It becomes routine,  for example to ease up behind a  moving cloud of dust on a long  up-grade and be in the middle  ofthe cloud and level with the  tail before you know what it is  you are trying to pass. As for  oncoming traffic, you try not to  think about that.  The Riley One Point Five was,  of course, far too heavily loaded  down and scraped bottom in  every pile of deep gravel on the  turns. Also the Montreal-corroded bottom sucked up the dust as  we passed like some insane  "vacuum"gleaner. We put a face;;  cloth, moist, over the baby's;  face and made brave little hysterical jokes about Chiquita Bandita,  and so forth.  We knocked a hole in the gas  tank near Watson Lake with six  hundred miles still to go and we  had no money to weld it so I  devised a combination of soap on  the inside and chewing gum on  the outside, replaced it frequently  and crawled into Whitehorse  where the school administrators,  my new bosses lived who had the  nice cheque for travel expenses I  was to get as soon as I arrived.  Let me regress, for a moment.  Would you believe that with this  first travelling child we had not  yet discovered disposable diapers  so that all day the smells lingered  in the dust in an inadequate plastic container and at the end of  every day's wrestling with my tortured over-burdened little car I  had to build a massive fire to  boil water to....  In any case, at the end of all  this I stumbled, into Education  Headquarters in Whitehorse,  hair standing on end, eyes glazed  in some variety of shell-shocked  fatigue, covered with Alaskan  Highway dust from head to foot  and began demanding money.  "It's unorthodox," they said.  "I'm afraid we can't until you get  to Dawson City...first month's -  pay cheque," they said. I glared  and pounded the table and in a  voice chocked with dust kept  repeating "Baby Food, Gas Tank,  Money!" The sight of this glaring, demented, dust-covered  scarecrow must have been too  much for them. They gave us the  money. I sold the Riley One  Point Five somewhat guiltily to  a man in Whitehorse and bought  a Volkswagon Beetle and made it  to Dawson City.  We had successfully traversed  the Alaska Highway. That was  only the first time. None of them  was easy..  ���:���:���:���:���>:���  ���:�����:���:���:���:���:��  >:�������!���.���  I'm about to commit three of  the worst excesses a would be  journalist should indulge in. The  first is writing about the paper  he works for. . The second is  giving advice to his editor; and  the third is devoting an entire  column to the very sin he is  preaching against. The first two  will, I'm sure, be excused by the  generous spirit of my boss. The  third however, contains just  enough self inflicted hypocrisy  to threaten my credibility.  My editor, Mr. Burnside, is  well known on the peninsula for,  among' other things, his exceptionally fine writing and his never  ending support and encouragement of the writing talents of our  local citizens.  John's philosophy of journalism is such that he believes  a newspaper should promote  literary quality. If you've been  reading the last couple of editions  I think you'll agree that the standard of writing has been good.  The problem with this idealistic  approach is that with the talents  of people like Trower, Haggerty,  Faustmann and Burnside himself,  the "news" in the paper gets  "upstaged". You know what  I mean. Here it is Tuesday again  and virtually the entire population  of the Sunshine Coast is rushing  out to the mailbox in eager anticipation of the "Coast News".  Almost to a person we're rushing  back to the reading room, locking  the door, raising the seat and  settling in for a good long read.  Now, what we're looking for is  not the front page stuff; which  of our friends was arrested this  week for driving under the influence, which venerable citizen  turned 100 in the past few days,  what was the highest bowling  score of the last seven days, who  insulted who at the last council  meeting. No, we're turning to  the second and third page to  peruse the most current literary  gem.  The newspaper that concerns  itself more with literature than  with news reminds me of the  tragic story of the long-necked  quadradactyl. No doubt you've  never heard of this exotic, prehistoric bird and I'll tell you why.  The long-necked quadradactyl  was one of the most finely adapted creatures in the world some  350 million years ago. This beautiful and elegant bird was so  much more highly developed than  other creatures that he was bored  with all of the lesser species he  saw. He looked around and saw  those dinosaurs and brontosauri  and just yawned. He flew over  the primitive jungles and erupting volcanoes and found no excitement.  The long-necked quadradactyl  was amused by only two things.  He loved to stand in the river and  admire his reflection and most of  all he longed to gaze upon the  glorious egg he produced once  every year. This egg was a sight  to behold; deep blue, round, and  fully eighteen inches in circumference, it was decorated with  the most magnificent gold and  white swirls. After several thousand years, no longer fascinated  by his reflection, not even gazing  upon the egg held the interest  of this tragic creature.  One day, an especially adventurous member of the quadradactyl family, growing impatient  awaiting the annual arrival of  the egg, decided to seek out a  new amusement. He decided to  take a peek at the egg before it  was delivered. Now, things have  changed considerably in the past  several million years and while  this wondrous bird was capable  of producing this egg without  the tedious necessity of, taking ,a  mate, (which perhaps explains  his chronic boredom) in those  days an egg still came from the  same place. He stretched out  his long, graceful neck, craned  his head down between his sturdy  legs and forced his head into a  position from which ,he could  observe the unborn egg. When  he opened his eyes, he was  filled with wonder and interest.  All of the other members of his  family, taking note of this phenomena, followed suit and within  hours every quadradactyl on the  face of the earth had assumed a  similar posture.  Needless to say, these poor  creatures, who were so amused  by themselves, quickly became  extinct and that's why you've  never heard of them.  Now, a newspaper that; gets  too wrapped up in itself can  suffer the same fate. Sure,, most  people are not particularly interested in the colour of Mary-  Ann's sequin covered bridal  gown, or where she and her new  hubby are spending the nuptuals.  Most folks don't care that old'  Bill celebrated his 90th birthday  with a dip in the sea and a stiff:  drink or that Jack and Harriet  celebrated their 60th surrounded:  by 13 children, 43 grandchildren  and etc., etc.; but, the people  who are interested are Mary and  her groom, Mary's dad who just?  forked out $1400 for the celebration, old Bill and his family and  friends, and Jack and Harriet-  and their 386 offspring.  In a small town we all get our  moment in the sun, whether it's  in the court news, the social page:  or the obituaries and when our  moment comes we'd be darn well'  disappointed if our names wern't'  in print and spelled right at that.  A newspaper is the living  history of a town. It belongs to  the people and it is the people. I  guess what I'm trying to say is  that I look forward to the time  when our readers read the news  first and then look inside to see  what their neighbours have to  say about it.  Editor's Note:  It Is always a pleasure to  receive criticism from the  scholastic Ivory towers. It  should be noted that Mr.  Matthews' views - and the  point of view described In  this article - are entirely  his own.  V  t>  \ Clark writes ...  From the Back Porch  Coast News, January 18,1977  Well, sir, most times the Back  Porch is jest fer a gentle chuckle  an a quiet thought that mebbe  hoists folks up an gives 'em the  strength fer one more day.  This time, however, we is  gonna have a sad one. Like a  feller onct sed to me: "That  bortsch is OK....but a littel salt  mite help!" So here's the salt  with the bortsch.  T'uther nite wen I cum home,  the wife has pullt up the petoon-  yas, becus there's a nip of  Autumn in the air. It's gettin' on  to that time we usta call "Time  Fer Grouse Stew an YfHd Mushrooms!"  I wheeled the barrow down the  back lane, past the littel school-  house. Two nice littel kids is  heavin' crumpled paper in the  garbidge can. They look real  smart in slacks and frilly blouses,  so I asts how they like the first  day of school...an how they like  their new teacher?  Both of 'em answered at onct:  "I AM the teacher", they ses!  Wich brings me to the story  in the Big Paper a wile back,  where it ses most of the kids  failed English at the University.  ...and, in a sorta meanderin'  fashion, brings us to Marigold;  an to Alexander Woollcott (wich  these kids will never know)...an,  eventually, to an old feller, with  long white whiskers who sorta  took over where Shakespeare  left off:  George Bernard Shaw.  So, on with the story...  Y'see, Marigold was lovely in'  the way the Good Lord reserved  only fer Helen of Troy an a few  others. She modelled fer artists  in the Big City, where the classic  beauty of her face inspired young  artists with a fenzy to outstrip  Raphael. And then Marigold  fell in love.  Seems like Marigold fell in  love with a soldier. an sorta  wished him Godspeed on the  troopship with an engraved  watch. Woollcott don't say fer  shur, but I s'pose it wus a gold  watch...an mebbe it sed "All  my love - always: Marigold".  Anyways, Marigold watched  the ship pull out an there wus  both joy and sadness in her heart  an she spoke to one who stood  beside her. A tart; a floozy. In  short, a lady with well-rounded  Letters to  the Editor  An open letter to Don Lockstead, M.L.A.  Dear Mr. Lockstead,  After reading your news  column in the Coast News of December 28, 1976 I could not help  but write and say how distressed  I was with your negative approach  to 1977.  With regard to the forest  workers I would think they have  had their best year ever with no  strike, no fire season and such an  open winter. I realize with the  World Market situation that 1977  may not be as good as 1976 but  this is not the Provincial governments fault.  The transportation system on  the B. C. coast may become a  responsibility of the provincial  government but in your lifetime  it has always been subsidized  by the Federal government and  if tomorrow there was an excellent passenger service by boat to  Ocean Falls and Bella Coola  (sic) In the lower part of the  riding we have excellent transportation.  I would also suggest that inflation rose higher and faster  between 1972 and 1975 than it  did in 1976 and you above others  should know that the Provincial  government on its own is pretty  helpless in stopping inflation.  I am disappointed that my  M.L.A. does not project a more  encouraging message to the  people of this riding. This is a  great' area, in a great province  with opportunities for all who are  bright enough to see them.  J.Willcock  Box 191,  Madeira Park, B.C.

This would be  a column where we could .deliver  our prized stories and poetry,  where we could share some  unusual knowledge.  There isn't much to read in a  newspaper for us, (except, of  course, the occasional funnies)  and I am dissapointed no other  newspapers to my knowledge  have done this.

I TOLT you it wus  sadl  So now let's turn to George  Bernard Shaw - an the strange  outpouring of letters to a wonderful lady he had seen, but never  met. Let's look at Shaw's preface  to those letters, released after  Ellen Terry's death:  "She became a legend in her  old age ��� but of that I have nothing to say: for we did not meet -  and, except for a few broken  letters, did not write...and she  never was old to me..."  An so, fer the kids wot has  failed their English (wich is where  this all startid out)... a LAST  WORD:  It's the final paragraph of  Shaw's letter. I wus sorta sneaky  an left it fer the last:  "Let those who may complain  that it was all on paper remember  that only on paper,has humanity  yet achieved glory, beauty, truth,  knowledge - and abiding love."

GEMINI - May 21 to June 20  Things should be clearing up  . generally for Gemini individuals now.

Say "yes"  to any request made of you in the  next few weeks.  LEO - July 22 to August 21  Aspects are good, but very puzzling in the sign of Leo right now.

For those lucky people who have  inever had one, let me explain.  It is a red, inflamed and itchy  skin irritation, found on toes and  fingers.  ,: My sister was famous for her  chilblains. She could boast at  least six or seven at one time.  Down Under in Western Australia  where I lived as a child, we accepted them as a fact of winter life.  - Australia is thought of as the  land of perpetual sun and warmth. However, there was a winter  of sorts. Temperatures rarely  sank below freezing, and if they  did, it was headline news.  " Chattering has another freezing  night", the wireless would announce. I was glad I didn't live  at Chittering.  f My home town, called Darkan,  can boast one snowfall. No one-  had ever seen snow before.  Visions of snowmen and igloos  failed to materialize, however,  <vhen the snow soon became  sleet. At Perry's orchard, the  grape-vines were covered in  white, but there was not enough  to scrape up a snowball. It wasn't  until I was in my twenties and  went to live in Winnipeg, that I  ever saw a real snowman. I'll  take a rain-check on the igloo.  ! During my early morning walk  to catch the school bus, I sometimes found puddles, which had  ice on top.  Once I took some ice  to school, to prove how cold it  was at our farm. Of course it  melted into my sandwiches.  On frosty mornings, the spiders  spun special webs for us to marvel at. They glistened with tiny  dew drops, which you could flick  off, one by one. Winter was the  rainy season, the grass turned  green and everything grew  mightily, along with my sister's  chilblains.  Several of the rivers flooded  each year. One of the old bridges  near Duffield's place was rickety  and unsafe. -The river in flood  overflowed the bridge, and the  bus driver was reluctant to drive  us across for fear we'd all get  swept away. So we children were  ordered to walk across first, while  he followed in the bus. At this  point, the Duffield children ran  home.  Austrialian homes are not insulated at all, in fact they are  built to retain the cold, so they are  constructed of stone or brick, with  cement floors. On winter afternoons, it's often warmer outside  in the sun, than it is inside the  house.  The main source of heat at  our farm house, were two open  fireplaces, at either end of the  huge living room (called 'lounge'  room). In the kitchen was a slow  combustion stove, an "Aga"  brand.    In Canada, I have only  once seen a similar stove, this  was in an old farm house at  Sooke. The "Aga" burnt coke,  a by-product of coal. "Mallee"  roots from Mallee scrub trees  were the major source of fuel for  the fireplaces. These roots were  ploughed up in the open paddocks. If all other activities on  the farm were finished, one could  always go and pick up Mallee  roots. They were a pest to the  grain grower, getting stuck in  scarifiers and harvesters.  On cold nights we would hang  out clothes in front of the Aga"  stove. If it was filled late at  night, it would still be burning in  the morning so the kitchen was  still warm. We children would  sprint across the cold floors to get  dressed in front ofthe stove.  During early winter, the mushrooms were most prolific. We  gathered large saucer sized ones,  and there was often enough for  a feast. Sauteed and served on  toast, they were a favourite Sunday night supper.  My husband, who grew up in  the city of Perth, boasts that he  didn't wear shoes to school, even  in wintertime. On reaching High  School, he was forced by protocol  to wear them.  My chilblain has given me itchy  feet, but hopefully, any future  visit to Australia will happen in  the summertime.  i  I  T T m  renew  Insurance  IVfotorVfehicle  Licence  YOU WILL SOON RECEIVE  BY MAIL:  ��� A Renewal Form for your 1977/  78 Autoplan Insurance and Motor  Vehicle Licence.  ��� A Brochure which outlines the  steps which you should follow to  renew your insurance and licence.  ��� A new. guide, "All About Autoplan" which provides detailed information on Autoplan insurance  and the types of coverage which  are available.

WE WANT YOU TO KNOW  ALL ABOUT YOUR  AUTOPLAN INSURANCE  INSURANCE  CORPORATION  OF BRITISH  COLUMBIA  I  l  i  ;.  t.v  *, CBC Radio  Coast News, January 18,1977  5,.  'Ar-'  Peter Trower  THE TAME APES  If there was one subject in  addition to booze and broads that  was almost certain to crop in  bunkhouse bullsessions a few  years back, it was the poetry of  Robert E. Swanson. Loggers and  literature might seem strange  bedfellows but then Swanson  didn't pretend to be a literary  writer. He was a balladeer in  the Kipling-Service tradition and  has .'Klondike" was the B. C.  logging-camps. Swanson wrote  of spar-trees, haywire hookers,  highball shows, skidroad queens,  catskinners, steam-fakes and  blown-stakes - the whole gunny-  bag of tricks that made up the  oldtime woods. He was the logger's poet, spelling out their  myth in their own words. They  responded by buying his books. I  have heard key stanzas quoted  in the most unlikely places.  Swanson's books were a familiar fixture on the newstands of  the old Union boats. They were  amusingly illustrated by one Bert  Bushell, a capable artist who had  obviously been there too. With  the passing of the Union fleet  in the early Fifties, those colourful books of verse seemed to  disappear too. Perhaps the publishers felt they had exhausted  the market. In any event, they  were allowed to go out of print  and  have  become   increasingly  rare. I was delighted to hear, a  couple of years back that an enterprising folk-group called The  Tame Apes had produced an  album ofthe same title comprised  almost entirely of Swanson's  long-neglected verse set to suitable tunes.  The day I got the aibum,. I  spent some time simply looking  at it and wondering what it might  possibly sound;.like. After all,  apart from that old chestnut, The  Fozen Logger and something  about a whistle-punk that Johnny  Cash once sang on his ill-fated  television show, there was little  precedent for logging music. The  appropriately hardboiled cover  shows a handfalling team posed  at the undercut base of a giant  fir. The album notes by Swanson  himself, sketch briefly the background of each song and are  forgivably nostalgic.  The record itself, when I got  around to playing it, proved to  be not quite like anything I'd  ever heard before. The instrumentation- Lloyd Arntzen: guitar  Harry Aoki: bass and harmonica -  George Zukerman: bassoon and  Tom Hawkins: banjo - is simple  and effective. Zukerman's excellent bassoon work supplies an  unusual, shouldering, robust  quality to many of the tracks.  Wally   McSween,   the   vocalist,  Hi��  y^r J) nnnfw  Books with  Sohn Faustmann  Sundance at Dusk  by Al Purdy  ACflirdy  SU^jDANCF.  *     MrDUSK  Al Purdy just published  another book of poetry with McClelland and Stewart, the Canadian publishers. This means that  the thing is expensive - $4.95  in the paperback edition, and it's  getting a little ridiculous, paying  that much for such a thin book.  But then there are some things  that go without price, and lest  we fall into the trap of Oscar  Wilde's cynic ("One who knows  the price of everything and the  value of nothing") it would be  best to say the book is worth it.  I just hope Purdy gets a sizable  cut from the proceeds.  I can't help but like Al Purdy,  though I've never met him. I've  read different articles he's writ  ten for. the weeklies. He seems  to keep in touch with the wilderness, and he writes about this  sort of thing well. He has a poem  in his book Sex .and Death called  "Depression in Namu, B. C".  A line from it sums up a lot:  "-but I have lived too long  somewhere else  and beauty bores me without  the slight ache  of ugliness that makes me want  to change things  knowing it's impossible."  In this new book, the man with  the dilemma in his briefcase is  back. He brushes his hair back  past his forehead, cracks open a  beer, lights his cigar and begins.  NEW BANKING HOURS  Effective January 31st, 1977  Monday to Thursday  10:00 a.m. ��� 4:00 p.m.  '        7 Friday  10:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m.  it  The First Canadian Bank  flank of Montreal  Gibsons  886-2216  lends his assured baritone to a  feelingful reading of the lyrics,'  missing none of the humour that  runs through much of Swanson's  work. On The Big Swede, one  of the funniest and most appealing poems, he adopts a ripe  Swenska accent to good effect.  Some of the poems such as  Seattle Red which chronicles the  exploits of Swanson's late brother  and The Logger's Ten Commandments, that classic of lumberjack  protocol, are simply recited over  musical backing. The remainder  . have been transformed into full-  fledged songs. The session was  produced and arranged by Lloyd  Arntzen.  The album opens with the title  song, a rousing tribute to the  logger's footloose lifestyle,  propelled by Hawkins' energetic  banjo. Call Of The Wanderlust  which follows is a well-rendered  but somewhat trite tribute to the  wide-open spaces. Catskinner's  Prayer, one of the best tracks,  features McSween invoking the  God of Internal Combustion in  no uncertain terms. Good Timber, the only song not written by  Swanson, is rather, hackneyed  philosophy done in a dirge-like  fashion. Queenie, My Waterfront  Queen is a ballad of lost innocence, ably rendered by McSween and the group but not  directly related to the logging  experience.  The second and much the best  side opens with McSween's very  good reading of Seattle Red. This  is followed by one of Swanson's  best-known   pieces,   Whistle   In  The Night, a fine lament to the  passing of the steam locomotive.  It is powerfully done at a sort of  musical gallop with all hands  going their best lick and real or  simulated train whistles adding  a touch of haunting poignance.  The aforementioned Big Swede is  a humourous tour-de-force for  McSween, performed at a clumping, goofy tempo that entirely  suits the funny yet oddly-moving  words. The Logger's Ten Commandments is essentially a set of  ground-rules for getting alongj-  in a logging-camp, declaimed hv  suitably reverential tones by the  versatile McSween. The final  track, The Camps of The Holy  Ghost is, in Swanson's own  words: "an epitaph for all old-  time loggers". It describes a  lumberjack's hereafter where the  chokers are featherweight and  the spartree is rigged by an  angel. Again, an extremely  capable job by all concerned. The  album ends with a reprise,of the :  Tame Apes refrain that dies away  in a bouncing, banjo fadeout.  Despite a couple of duds, the  album remains a satisfying package, very well produced, performed and recorded. Unfortunately, it was released with  very little fanfare and sank into  rapid obscurity. While copies  might still be found in the folk-  sections of certain large record  stores, anyone interested in obtaining it might be better advised  to write directly to the distributors: MCA RECORDS - Canada,  at Willowdale, Ontario.  The book is dedicated to Jackie  Oanalik and Martin Senigak, two  . Innuit hunters lost on the ice in  Labrador. It is not unlike Purdy  to have gone up in the government plane looking for these men,  and although they were never  found this book is their fine  memorial.  . The room fills with smoke, and  the words come rolling out in  that odd jumpy way of his, creating clear hard images to steer  by. He writes poems about everything, to the electric stove that's  sitting snow-bound in the front  yard: "...if there's ever a summer/ the thing must go", to  Rocket Richard the hockey  player: "...watching you I know/  all the things I knew I couldn't  do/ are unimportant." and to  lovers: "...There is one memory/  or you smiling in the darkness/  and the smile has shaped the air/  around your face/ someone you  met in a dream/ has dreamed you  waking."  This is Purdy's secret, his life  is a poem, lived and written.  He can be a part of a scene, intrude himself on life, probably  get noisy, drunk and obnoxious,  and still manage to distill the  essence of everything that went  on. Five poems in, he reaches for  the second .beer, probably not  missing a beat. He is full of  stories, telling them in a straight  narrative manner, as offhand as  sidewalks, as clean as a fresh  deck of cards. He goes on,  encompassing everything, taking  all events as his dominion: He  has learned his craft now, no  question about it. In "Jean"  he says: "I wrote such bad  poems/ when I was very young/  when I was about fourteen/ and  thought poems were 'poems'/'  instead of what they are...Just'  because something is gone/  doesn't make it a poem/ but  maybe the reason you remember/  does."  Getting down to the back pages  and the bottom of the case., He's  taken us through the Andes, got  us lost in the wbods^' shown,'us  his recurrent dreams," brought  us back to childhood or into the  place where death finds ice -  lost hunters. He does this with  a keen sight and a fine ear, with  a total appreciation of the world  most of us will always leave unnoticed. There are some sad  things here and there, and some  quick truth, but mostly you notice  the man's wry humour. He's  got those eyes that have seen  things, and a crazy hand to put  them down in words, but coming  away, he leaves you with a smile  on your face.  The beer's run out, and all  the pubs are closed.. Purdy's  still there, weaving a little,  maybe, but right there. What  must it be like, living in the world  so relentlessly as he does? Perhaps we'll never know. Someone  poured him a cab, now, and he's  on his way again. He stops at  the door, holding it for leverage  against the night.. He turns, and  scatters a little advice around.  "Of course What I'm actually  doing,.or seeming to,/ is telling  anyone reading this how to write,  a poem:/ so build your fireplace,  raise your stone tower,/ fall in  love, live a life, smell a flower,/  throw a football, date a blonde,  dig a grave/ - in fact, do any  damn thing, but act quickly!/  Go ahead, You've got the kit."  Good night, Al. Take care.  The Canadian whose name is  'most closely associated with the  Grizzly Bear and who has done so  much to dispel the myths surrounding this magnificent animal,  Andy Russell of Wainwright,  Alberta, will be the subject of.  a Between Ourselves profile on  Saturday at 9:05 p.m.  Born in Lethbridge, Alberta  in 1915, Andy Russell who describes his education as "limited  formal, considerable Rocky  Mountain variety" has spent his  adult life as trapper, bronco-  buster, hunter, professional  guide and outfitter and more recently became famous and won  national recognition as a naturalist-photographer, writer and  .filmmaker.  Concerned about man's invasion and desecration of the  grizzly's wilderness habitat  Russell gave up hunting and set  put with a camera to record the  ~ life of this animal. His experiences were recorded in a book and  film called Grizzly Country. He  has written another book about  the Rocky Mountains. Russell  believes "hunting as an art can  be refined to its highest degree  through the medium of photography", and says his greatest  adventures have been in the presence of wild grizzlies with nothing more lethal than a camera.  Those who have heard him on  radio know him also to be a first-  class raconteur.  Wednesday January 19  Mostly Music: 10:20 p.m. Vancouver Chamber Choir, Folk  songs from around the world.

Funds will mainly be  allocated to areas of high unemployment and projects  will be tailored to special employment needs of your  local community.  CanadaWorks will generate employment for more  than 60,000 Canadians who are presently unemployed.  Applications will be considered twice a year-in  Winter and Summer.  Think aboutyour projects now! Early in the newyear,  yourlocal Canada Manpower Centre will have application forms and a Canada Works "Guide to Applicants,"  with full details on the program. CanadaWorks for  ' your community. Make your worthwhile projects work  next year!  A second program is for students.Young Canada"  Works will create jobs for more than 20,000  students next summer.The emphasis will be on projects of solid community value.

Coast News, January 18,1977  I  m  >.���  ���*���:  K  I  *?***  Harmony Hall Happenings  Some local ladies are seen keeping fit at a recent Aerobics Class,   people of all ages were present on this occasion which featured a movie  sponsored by the Coming Alive with Action, B. C. program.    Fifty    "Heart Counter Attack" and a lecture by Dr. Hugh Venables.  DOgWOOd   TakeOUt  by Michael Nutland      Indian  s' The Dogwood was, for once, a  thot-bed of complete indifference.  jiEven the hard-core crib players  : jwere sufficiently bored to be discussing the prospect of maybe  ^thinking about possibly doing  some work. Failing to be excited,  jeven negatively, by this horren-  ��� 'dous notion, they fell to boasting  {about how  much they had lost  . -at poker the previous  evening.  Seems that everybody had lost.  ' Strange.   Maybe I should go and  'check under their card table. The  ��� money has to be somewhere.  ; Suddenly, almost like a sacrilege to the over-whelming  ���apathy, peals of laughter rang  -out from a corner table. Investi-  - .gation of the cause of this merri-  !ment left me with a story something like this:  A bricklayer, who was the teller  of this tale, was on a roof fixing  some flashing to a chimney he  had just completed. With him  was his new but undoubtedly  able assistant. Finding the need  for more material, the bricklayer  started the descent to the ground.  The roof was only part finished  and as he trod on a piece of strapping, it broke. He slid over the  edge and hung from the eave by  one hand before dropping to the  ground. Lucky escape, say's  you. But wait, dear reader. His  assistant, fancying coffee and not  realizing what had happened but  having seen his boss disappear  over the edge with such nonchalant ease, figures there must be  a scaffold to jump onto and blithely steps off into mid-air. The  rest I leave to Sir Isaac Newton  'to explain.  It has to be a slow day, when  some poor guy has to nearly  break his neck to provide us with  a laugh. It also goes to prove  that Monty Python will never replace the banana skin. (In colloquial terms)  During the recent snow a customer entered and announced to  the assembled horde, that he had  had a little too much to drink,  because it had taken him eight  hours to get to Sechelt. Horrified,  one of the resident ladies pitched  in with comments like "No wonder it took you so long if you  drink a bottle of rum on the way  down" and "drunken driving"  etc.  What he failed to tell her was  that he was in an open boat all  this time. Some people choose  strange ways to make a living  but eight hours in an open boat  in Georgia Strait in a January  snow storm nas to one of the  strangest. Though I can't think of  a better reason to get colloquially  drunk.  Gazing out of the window the  other evening I witnessed an incident that came close to gladdening my heart. Two of the local  "boy-racers" decided to lay rubber round the parking lot across  from us. In opposite directions!  They came within a hairs-breadth  of colliding. Luck, not good judgement, kept them apart. If they  had met, I for one would have  gone out and applauded and  maybe even have asked for an  action replay.  School Board Chairman Ceilia Fisher  addresses the meeting at the official  opening of Elphinstone Secondary School  on January 15th. Among those in attendance can be recognized as Supt. Denley,  Trustee Clayton, Principal Don Montgomery, Mayor Nelson of Sechelt,  Trustee Precesky, Former Trustee  Murphy, and former School Board  Chairman Agnes Labonte.  CROSSWORD  PUZZLE  autonomy  The Sechelt Indian Band has  again achieved a historic first as it  continues in the role of pacemakers for the independent development of the affairs of the  native people. In September 1973  the local Indian people were the  first in Canada to be granted  authority to negotiate their  own leases and permits. At that  time, however, it did not have the  power to complete contracts.  The local band has taken a long  stride toward economic independence by voting for management and lease-signing rights on  its 26,000 acres of reserve land.  Final approval by the federal  government is expected within  two months following the referendum that passed by a vote of 86  to 25.  The band will now have equal  authority with the regional director of the Department of Indian  Affairs in signing and completing  all residential, commercial and  industrial leases. Band members  also voted to give their elected  council the right to manage all  reserve lands occupied by the  band, including issuance of  various short-term permits.  Band officers last week credi- .  ted Chief Councillor Calvin ���  Craigan, councillors Gilbert Joe, j:  Ted Dixon, Tom Paul and Stanley:;  E. Joe, as well as land manage- :j  ment Advisor Graham Allen and j:  Department of Indian Affairs j;  employees for making the move:|:  toward autonomy possible. ;|:  Councillor Gilbert Joe, when��  contacted by the Coast News, said:*:  "We intend to maintain our com-:jj  posure and study the new situa-*  tion in depth." :���:  $  TODAY'S   ANSWER K  Well here I am again, I guess  I spoke too soon in my last issue  about our wonderful weather up  here on the Sunshine Coast. How  do you like the snow, it really  looked nice and clean until the  rain came and made it all slushy,  but that is life. I guess we can't  have everything, the way we want  it-  There were quite a few of our  regulars missing at the carpet  bowling on Thursday but I don't  blame them for not coming out,  it will give them a chance to get  all limbered up for next Thursday.  The tickets for the Valentine  Dinner are on sale right now and  it is a matter of first come - first  served. The dinner is on February 12th at the Royal Canadian  Legion, at 6:30 p.m. and are $3.00  per couple.  New members are still coming  into our group and I would like  to welcome Mr. and Mrs. Donovan who just recently arrived  from Edmonton, in that frozen  part of our country called Alberta.  So on behalf of Harmony #38  members and myself we welcome  you to the Sunshine Coast, especially to Gibsons where all the  retired and tired plutocrats live.,  Doif't forget the public bingo  starting on February 3rd at 8:00  p.m. in the hall, I am given to  understand that we will be paying  $15.00 per game with a $100.00  Jackpot so come on out and be a  winner. I would like to see everyone a winner, but I am sure you  will all enjoy yourselves, meeting  different people and kibitzing  among yourselves and who knows  you might hit the Jackpot. As  I said previously, we are starting  out in a small way and will build  up the prizes as we go along. We  have got all the equipment we  need and also professional callers  so come on out and spend a pleasant evening with us and meet  old friends. Parking will be a  bit of a problem as we only have  room in our parking area for  about 35 or 40 cars but there  is lots of parking on the lane,  also on Burns, Franklin and Cochran Roads, so don't let the parking problem worry you too much.  The parking area is well lit thanks  to B. C. Hydro who have installed  a light on the pole, it is a wonderful addition to our hall and we  thank B.C. Hyrdo and their crew  for putting it up.  Due to the inclement weather  the Gibsons Lions Club had to  postpone their meeting last Tuesday, but we hope the weather will  be better for them at the "Dinner  Meeting" on January 25th. In  conjunction with the Bingo, a  coffee bar will be in service, this  will be handled, as I am given to  understand, by Eva Oliver and  Louise Barnes, two of our members who always do a good first  class job when called upon.  Tickets for the Valentine Dinner will be on sale at the hall  each Thursday afternoon between  1:00 and 4:00 p.m. through to  February 3rd all senior citizens  60 years and over are invited  whether you belong to our organization or not. I hope the person  who took the wrong coat at our  New Years Eve party has returned it by this time, as two of our  members will be stuck with coats  that don't fit them if it has not  been returned.  In my last column I made an  error in the convenorship of the  carpet bowling. It should have  read Inga Bernhoff and Flo  Chaster. For this error, 1 submit  my apologies. Sorry ladies for  my empty headed mistake.  To all members get your resolutions ready for the convention  which I understand is to be in  June of this year. The sooner we  get them in the better it will be,  so that we can get them thrashed  out before our delegate is sent to  the convention. I ask all members  who have any resolutions pertaining to anything in particular,  that will help the Q.A.P.O. to  please bring them in as soon as  possible as we don't have an  awful lot of time to discuss the  various resolutions that we are  hoping to get. So anything that  you think will help the organization in any way, shape or form,  please submit it as soon as you  can.  Next month I want to have a  meeting with the Chairmen of  all committees, so that we can  get rolling on our entertainment  program, bus trips, day shopping  trips, etc. and who knows maybe  we will be able to take one or two  trips to Reno and bring back some  of that gambling cash they have  down there. I understand they  practically give it away (for a  price) so why not, let us get at  least one trip down there. We  have two travel agencies in town  and one in Sechelt so lets get  crackin' on these items.  Don't forget the Valentine  dinner on February 12th, the time  6:30, the place: Royal Canadian  Legion Hall, and as I stated  previously, tickets will be on  sale at Harmony Hall every  Thursday between 1:00 and 4:00  and the deadline for tickets is  February 3rd. So come and get  your tickets as soon as possible  as they won't last and as I said  it is a matter of first come - first  served. This is all the news for  this time. Hope you don't get  your feet wet tramping through  the slush.  Happy Horizons  The film "Fishermans Falls"  was an interesting display in the  art of landing that "big one"  but what a shock to see the fisherman unhook it, turn it loose, and  watch $10.00 worth of salmon  swimming back to sea. _  Well, pur inventor .Jack James  did it again. . First he replaced  the old frayed bowling carpet  ends with a permanent device of  his own creation. Then he added  covers to the bowl "troughs"  he invented on  a previous oc  casion thus providing both a  holding rack and storage facility  in one container. So everything's  up-to-date at New Horizons.  What next! Thank you again  Jack, from all the bowlers.  New Year is stock taking time  for our Library Dep't., so all concerned are requested to search  their home bookshelves for outstanding books. Please return  them as soon as possible so that  they can be checked out against  the library lists and begin  1977  with a full complement.  Our historic department is  always happy to receive news  items of persons and events of  former years in the Roberts  Creek area. Can any reader remember when the present  Masonic Hall at the corner of  Highway 101 and Hall Road was  first used as a Co-op Shop. Also  what year the Lower Roberts  Creek Road was first opened up.  Memories fade as time marches  on.  Regional Board  Two bids were received to provide garbage collection services  for the district, one from Bob  Kelly of Gibsons ($42,500 per  year) and one from Ray Chamberlain of Sunshine Coast Disposal  Services Ltd. ($6,000 per month),  a decision was deferred to the  garbage collection committee to  meet on the 16th.  In the matter of dog control,  it was suggested that areas requiring dog control should make  application to the board on a  "specified area" basis, directors  are to get a consensus of opinion  in their areas and report to the  board at the end of February  meeting. The regional district  will apply for a letters patent  to cover dog control.  Public reaction against high  density housing in the Secret  Cove area resulted in a developer  being refused approval, subject  to a reduction in units from the  proposed 38 to less than 30.  Regional board planning staff  are to get together with Victoria  to do a study on the need for  subdivisional developments of  crown land as proposed by the  provincial government.  Approval in principle was given  to development of 68 single-  detached building sites and a 200  acre cattle or sheep ranch on a  338 acre site in Long Bay, Gambier Island. Area "F" director  Mulligan yielded approval subject  to contact with his advisory committee.

Senior boys basketball  by Constantine Maragos  The Elphinstone senior boys  basketball team is not having a  banner year. With half the season over the Cougars have only  won twice in fourteen games.  Coach Gary Gray has seen the  finest and the worst of teams pass  through his hands in the past  few years. Now in his fifth year  ���as coach of senior basketball, he  has compiled a very impressive  record. He took his team to the  Tri-Zone finals (Provincial Preliminaries) four times, losing out  three times, including the heart-  breaker loss at home to St.  Thomas Moore last year. The  most memorable team he coached  was in the 1974-75 season when  Elphinstone came out of the Tri-  Zone victorious for the first time  in the history of the club before  placing third in the province.  Players such as Frank Havies,  Dave Newman, Kerry Bjornson,  Leigh Wolverton, and Dave Lamb  are all gone leaving only memories of great basketball.  The Cougars of '77 are a different story. In their formative  years as ��� basketball players this  year's team was- hampered by the  unavailability of adequate practice facilities, therefore the incentive to play  basketball  was  WANTED  Used Furniture  or What Have You  AL'S  USED FURNITURE  WE BUY BEER  BOTTLES  886-2812  non-existent. The facilities are  now here but the experienced  players are not.  Coach Gray has tried a variety  of strategies, plays and techniques, but nothing is working.  The only bright spot has been the  play of centre Ryan Mathews  who has been averaging fifteen  to twenty points per game. The  problem has been lack of support  for Mathews.  Despite the team's problems  the players are working hard at  their game and their losing record  has not caused them to lose heart.  Coach Gray elaborated on this  aspect of his team's morale and  said that this year's team is more  mature than last year's team,  which explains why the award  for "most sportsman like player"  was not given last year.  Setting aside this year's on-  court   problems,   Gray   remains  optimistic for the future. "There  are some tine players coming up  from the junior ranks in Sechelt  and the Grade eight team is  looking good", he said.

The ffeam, which had been planning the tour for a year, won all  three games against Hawaiian  opponents. In game one, Gibsons  defeated a University of Hawaii  R.F.C. team 20 to 7, then went on  to;, defeat Hawaii Harlequins  R.F.C. 8 to -4, and< the Bri|ham  Young University of Hawaii  R.F.C. team 16 to 10.  rocky fields and temperatures  as high as 33 degrees centigrade.  The Hawaiian players while  lacking experience and finesse,  were generally bigger than the  Gibsons players and played an  extremely rough and rude brand  of rugby. Gibsons, known for  its agressive, hard hitting style,  suffered a number of injuries  but the intervals between games  and hospitable, climate allowed  ample opportunity for recovery.  Representing Gibsons in  Hawaii were a number of players  with previous international experience. Bob Emerson i Alex  Skytte, Derick Cameron, Peter  Rigby, Gary Gray, Mike Dorais,  Bob Johnson, Ken Johnson, Tom  Blaine, Bob Crosby, Larry  Knowles, Jerry Ferris, and Bruce,  Gibson have represented Gibsons  in tournaments in Seattle and :):  Portland. iji  Gibsons also had fine games ���:���:  from the younger team members, &  Frank Havies, Ken Bennett and :jj  high school students Bill Brad- ���:���:  shaw and Brent Liniker.

The best way  to get your gamey spouse in a  tub is to suggest getting in with  him. Fun with soap and water.  We all enjoy a back scrub and  excuse the pun, a bit of horse  play. He's loveable again and the  intimacy will do you both some  good.  Mrs. E.:  My husband wants to sleep  with his socks on. It is very funny  to me and when he wants to make  love, I can't take him seriously.  . Dear Mrs. E.:       .  These cold nights you're lucky  he doesn't cover up more than his  feet.

I  ^ Coast News, January 18,1977  11  Mrs. Sheila Kitson of Gibsons  recently attended a meeting in  Ottawa of the Canadian Consumer Council. Mrs. Kitson was  appointed to the council last  summer for a two-year term.  The Canadian Consumer Council, which has a total of 23 members, meets regularly in private  with the Consumer and Corporate  Affairs Minister in Ottawa. Its  function is to provide him with  independent, non-governmental  views and advice at  the  early  development stages of his department's major programs and  legislation. Equally important  the council provides the minister  with an important source of knowledge and understanding of how  different Canadians view major  issues affecting consumers.  The most widely known of the  recent appointees is probably  Montreal Canadiens goaltender  Ken Dryden, whose off-ice energies have been devoted to activist  consumer law both in Canada and  with the Ralph Nader group in  the U. S. They range from a  working farmer, to prominent  academic and legal figures, all  expert in various consumer interest fields, from the secretary-  general of a major trade union  organization, to a small-town  department store manager. And  geographically, from a weekly  newspaper editor in Newfoundland's outports to Mrs. Kitson of  Gibsons, B. C, nurse, home-  maker and activist in various  community organizations.  The men of the Gibsons Volunteer Fire Department, ever alert, are  pictured on a recent call in the Granthams Landing area.   Fortunately  in this case the fire was only a chimney fire and no serious property  damage or personal injury was incurred.  Profiles of this place  The whys and hows  of recycling  by Bruce Wilson  Although history is recorded by  names and dates, the real history  of a town is related to and ultimately affected by the people  dwelling therein. It is in the tales  of human foible or greatness with  their humor, pathos and heroism  that the soul of a community is  laid bare. The following is one  such Gibsons Landing story that  happens to be a personal favorite.  Fire! The homeowners most  dreaded enemy. Fire I The siren  screamed through the early morning stillness.      <��}  ;���:;.  In the houses of twenty-odd  volunteer firemen a familiar  scene-was being repeated. Dad,  shot bolt-awake scrambling into  clothes and boots while mom or  one of the kids hurriedly phoned  the   fire   call   number.      Click I  "Hello!"  "Where is it?"  "Johnny's 'shack, Charman  Canyon!"  Running to the door, yelling the  message to dad who is already  halfway to the' car. With a  shouted "Okay" he's gone in a  haste that only fear can create, a  fear known only to firemen, of  someone trapped inside a burning  building where every seconds  delay could cost a life.  7 The scene of this particular  blaze was a tiny 8 by 12 foot,  cedar-sided shake-roofed shack  which for some time had served  as a home to Johnny C, who it  seems had simultaneously fallen  upon hard times and into disaccord with his family. Into the  shack "Old John" as he was  known had moved an old army  cot, a table of the kitchen variety,  a couple of chairs and his personal stuff which left just enough  rooVn, if one was careful of his  footing, to walk from door to  bed.VHis cooking was done on an  old wood stove just outside the  door and he obtained his water  from a little creek behind the  'house*.  Let the reader not despair over  the plight of "Old John" for he  had chosen this life as surely as  it had chosen him. Once he had  been a master carpenter of some  repute, indeed of legend. Many  a story is told locally of how John,  in whose hands tools assumed a  life unknown to most, would make  difficult angle cuts or intricate  fits on'cabinet corners with only  a piece of string of the naked eye  for measuring. Carpentry as a  profession, however, subjects one  to long periods of lay-offs,  idleness and boredom which in  time John increasingly devoted  to a penchant for a 'wee spot  of the grape'. I seek neither to  glamorize nor condemn but to  spin the tale. Suffice it to say that  as the times of wine began to  equal the times of work, John  moved away from hearth, home  and family; into, a time of little  responsibility and his even littler  cabin: His wants were simple and  easily satisfied. Companionship  supplied by the drinking buddies  who would stop by, weekly visits  to see the kids and share a meal  with the 'missus', and the myriad  of little kids passing through on  our way to great adventure and  contraband cigarettes * further  up the canyon. Always were we  greeted with a whistled "Hey  Kiddo!" and invited to make ourselves at home and pass time at  "Old John's" place.  When the first of the firemen  arrived one wall and the entire  roof of the shack were aflame, the  roof beginning to.sag and fall in  upon itself. Before the truck had  stopped firemen were jumping  down and amidst .the cries of  "Where's John?" and shouting  instructions of procedure, charged the door of the cabin to save  any or all within.  The chief rushed the smoke  filled room, to be stopped short  at the sight of John brushing  hot embers from his hair with one  hand and with the other casuallv  (under the circumstances) gathering together a few belongings  including the, by this time, inevitable bottle of wine. With a  minimum of effort but a great  deal of haste at the prospect of  being trapped beneath the rapidly  crumbling roof, the chief got John  out of the building and safely  ensconced on a slight hummock  thirty feet removed from thev  jblaze. "X.''."" *.'  t; A police car arrived at the  scene. The officer spotting John  sitting slightly removed from the  action, the only person there not  actively involved in fire fighting  proceeded to question him.  "Was there anyone in there?",  he inquired hesitantly, succumbing to the firemans fear.  "Why yes officer, there was,  sir", replied John with his customary politeness.  "Do you know who owns this  place?"  "Yes, sir, I do!"  "Ah", the officer said with relief in his voice, "where did the  fire start?"  ' 'Why I do believe'', responded  John with a touch of gentle irony,  "that it began in the master  bedroom!"  Well, it looks like this is going  to become a regular column about  recycling,: thanks to, the Coast  News. Probably a,good place to  start would be to talk about the  difference between the garbage  of a household that does recycle  and one that doesn't. In other  words, why I recycle.     V  I remember those bad: old days  when every so often I had to  cart this bag full of nasty smelling  slop, grungy tin cans and assorted other awful looking things  out to a can full of similar nasties.  As I recall, the can had invariably  beehVturned oyer and its contents'  rifled through by the local canines  (including my own). I can remember the joy of replacing these  nasties in said container.  Thats all changed since I started recycling. Now, I take a great  deal of pride in the condition of;  my garbage. MY garbage is  CLEAN! Anything the chickens  won't eat goes in the compost  bucket. Somehow, slop never  looks so vile when it's in a bucket  and on its way to doing me and  the world some good.  Any tin cans I have are washed  out with the regular dishes, de-  ended, stepped on and thrown in  a box. (You'd be amazed how  many flattened tin cans one small  box can hold.)  Jars are also washed out with  the dishes and placed in another  box.   (Anything that had alcohol  by Tom Haigh  in it is usually totally empty and  sterile anyway, so they just go  right in the box.)  I have one more box handy for  any papers I don't use to start  -fires with  (flyers, bills,  letters,  etc.).  �� This may sound like a lot of  containers to deal with, but the  ���j beautiful   thing   about   recycled  garbage is that it compacts, so  none of them fill up very often.  I  still have to have a "dump" garbage for those awful plastic and  styrofoam   things   the*   grocery  stores keep giving you, but because that is all that goes in it,  iriy   "dump"   can   hasn't  filled  up in" months,  and dogs don't  eat plastic.    Of course, just to  keep the beasts totally at bay, I  rinse out all my yogurt and cottage cheese containers. You see,  recycling becomes a mania after'  a "while.    You get so you can't  stand    smelly,    ugly    garbage.  Remember, cleanliness is next to  godliness or you are what you  didn't eat.

ROAM AT HOME  If you are the type who never  likes to throw anything away,  perhaps you have an earthly  patron saint in the tiny community of Harrison Mills.  The "saint", aided and abetted  by his wife of 47 years, is Acton  Kilby, proprietor of Kilby's store,  a man who is a self-proclaimed  pack rat. Their store is the perpetuation of the old fashioned  village store of the early 1900's  and is now a provincial government historic site. It is a shrine  that shouldn't be missed by anyone who has nostalgia in his veins  and who hankers for the days  that used to be.  Kilby's store sits behind a  dike that protects it from the  ravages of high water on the  Fraser, just as it has done since  1904 when it was opened by  Acton's father, Thomas. And to  look at it and the stock on its  shelves, you can't help believing  it hasn't changed since.  The old general store was  opened by the senior Kilby until  1928, when young Acton and his  bride Jessie took it over. The  village post office was part of the  premises and they ran that until  it was closed in the 1960's. They  also operated a dairy farm until  the devastating floods of 1948  that saw the demise of many of  their cattle. From then on it  was the general store alone.  Today, the couple continue to  operate the premises but their  main concern is making the visitors who come from all parts of  the continent welcome to an experience in history.  The ancient showca'ses are  filled with memorabilia of bygone  days. There are oil lamps, flintlock rifles, horse shoes, and  square nails. There is a typewriter patented in 1909. The  showcases themselves are heirlooms.  At the rear of the main store  there are two floors of accumulated bits and pieces of history  that Acton Kilby just couldn't  throw away. Each has a story  to tell.  Along with the accumulation of  hardware and softgoods, the Kil-  bys kept extensive scrapbooks  which document the history of  their long span in the area. Pictures of the 1938 and 1948 floods  and stories of events that high  lighted the years are all there.  However, the best part of visiting Kilby's store is meeting the  Kilbys themselves. The proprietor says he'll never see 85  again and his unsquelchable  sense of humour shines through  when he talks about the past.  There is a chuckle in his smile  and Mrs. Kilby is just as warm  and friendly. She was once described as the type who should  be everybody's mother and it  fits.  Most of Harrison Mills is gone-  the victim of flood, fire and a  changing society, but Kilby's  store remains. To find it you  follow the Lougheed Highway  (Highway 17) east through Harrison Mills, across the Harrison  River Bridge. Watch for the sign  a few hundred yards past the  bridge.  From Highway No. 1 take the  Agassiz Harrison cutoff on Highway 9 through Agassiz to Lougheed and proceed west. The  Kilby Museum sign is about one  mile (a kilometre and a half)  from the bottom of ' Woodside  Mountain. It is a trip you'll  never forget.  Leftovers can be delicious  Pity the lowly leftovers! We  often complain about them, but  where would our budgets be without them? Leftovers may be a  little short on reputation, but  they're long on delicious uses.  Here are some informative tips,  short suggestions and full-fledged recipies to help you see them  as a culinary challenge rather  than a culinary catastrophe.  The secret is to plan ahead!  Plan big dinners and future leftover uses at the same time. Refrigerate or freeze leftovers immediately to prevent spoilage...  and use as soon as possible. A  lot of things are lovelier the  second time around if you follow  these suggestions:  Use sauce and gravy mixes  to disguise and extend leftover  meat and vegetables.  Save liquids drained from canned vegetables to use in soups,  stews, chowders and sauces.  Wrap leftover meats or vegetables in foil for easy reheating  in oven.  Add a tasty topping to leftover  vegetable or meat casseroles  with shredded cheddar cheese or  grated Parmesan cheese.  Use leftover mashed potatoes  for casserole toppings, fried  potato patties or potato soup.  Heat cubed potatoes, chopped  onions, green pepper and celery  in a small amount of salad dressing for a quick and easy hot  potato salad.  Make old-fashioned creamed  vegetables modern by using a  white sauce for almost any vegetable   and   add   a   glamourous  topping  with   grated   Parmesan  cheese.  Add leftover diced fruit -  apples, peaches or bananas - to  pancake orfritter batter.  Heat leftover canned fruit and  syrup with cinnamon and nutmeg. Serve as a hot compote  with a main course.  Make meat salads with finely  chopped ham or turkey; then use  as a canape spread or sandwich  filling.  Make chop suey with bean  sprouts, water chestnuts, soy  sauce and leftover cooked beef,  chicken, pork, carrots, peas or  green beans.  Fill an omelet with a mixture  of shredded cheddar cheese,  diced cooked potatoes, chopped  ham and green onions.  Make a simple Stroganoff with  cubed cooked beef, gravy and  sour cream added just before  serving. Serve on noodles.  Have a hearty hash by chopping left over cooked beef, pork,  ham or turkey, combining with  diced potatoes, onion and green  pepper. Then heat in a skillet  with a small amount of gravy.  For a quick stew, heat cubes of  cooked roast beef with leftover  carrots, potatoes, peas, etc., in  gravy and add a dash of basil,  parsley and a little dry red wine.  Food Advisory Division, Agriculture Canada has developed  two recipes, "Pork Rice Casserole" and "Holiday Ham Pie"  to help you see leftovers for what  they really are...a great excuse  to go creative while staying  solvent.  Pork and Rice Casserole  Vi cup uncooked rice  Vi cup chopped onion  Vi cup diced celery  119 oz. can tomatoes  Vi tsp. salt  Dash pepper  Vi tsp. dry mustard  Vi tsp. basil  Va tsp. oregano leaves  3 cups diced cooked pork  1 Vi cups grated cheddar cheese  Combine rice, onion, celery,  tomatoes and seasonings. Pour  into greased baking dish, cover  and bake 40 minutes at 350 degrees F. Add pork and 1 cup  cheese. Cover and continue  baking 15 minutes more. Sprinkle with remaining Vi cup cheese  and broil until cheese is golden  (2 or 3 minutes). 6 servings.  Holiday Ham Pie  Pastry for 2-crust 9-inch pie  2 beaten eggs  1 cup cottage cheese  Dash pepper  2 tbsp. grated Parmesan cheese  1 cup grated Swiss cheese  1 Vi cups diced cooked ham  Line 9-inch pie plate with half  the pastry. Combine remaining  ingredients and pour into pie  shell. Make lattice topping with  remaining pastry. Bake 10  minutes at 450 F; reduce heat to  350F and continue baking until  crust is golden (30 to 40 min.).  Let stand 10 minutes before  serving. 6 servings.  ���*���*���  Dollar  FOODS  rra  r. j*   ~ ��* f-mx    ��       zn  ON  THESE  DAYS!
