 LEGISLATIVE  LT7PAI?Y  PARLIAMENT  BUILDINGS  VICTORIA,   B.C.  VF.V   iyJ;  m feb (-18  \     23 H '77      *$����  A .Ms  Published at Gibsons, B.C.  15* per copy on newsstands  Gerry Hoope,  caretaker  at  Camp  Elphinstone   surveys  damage caused by vandals at the camp last week.  Sechelt Council news  Norm Watson defended the  Marsh Society's desire for a sublease and said that the society  would be most happy to have a  representative from council serve  with the society. Mr. Gordon and  the village clerk, Tom Wood, are  to arrange a meeting between  the Marsh Society and the council.  In a lighter vein Watson theorized that perhaps the duck eggs  which could be obtained would  offset the bill for feeding the  birds which council paid. Aider-  woman Kolibas wondered .if the  Marsh Society could do anything  about persuading the birds  to refrain from defacing the park  benches hear porpoise Bay.  ��� In the committee reports section of council business, Alderman Leitner "reported that there  is a possibility that the proposed  new highway would encroach on  airport property and therefore  action on a survey would be held  in abeyance pending further investigation.. Leitner also told  council that the arrangements for  Timber Days were going well.  It was moved by Alderwoman  Kolibas and seconded by Alderman Leitner that Messrs. Wilson,  Chappel, and Burley be appointed as the Selection Committee  for the Sechelt manifestation of  the B. C. Remote Housing project. Alderwoman .Kolibas also  reported that the Garibaldi  Health Unit still has a moratorium  on subdivision inspections although one subdivision in Pender Harbour was inspected.  Chairman Erickson of the  Sechelt Legion was approached  by council regarding a retaining  wall alongside the lane with a  view to having the lane properly  constructed.  In subdivision developments,  the council approved in principle  Village Planner Doug Roy's suggestions respecting "Haydn Kil-'  lam's proposed subdivision adjacent to the afore-mentioned  lane. It was also moved by Alderman Leitner and seconded by  Alderwoman Kolibas that Len  Van Egmond's subdivision of  three lots be approved. The  motion carried.  New Man  The Coast News is proud to  announce the addition to its staff  of Josef Stanishevskyj. Josef  began his work in community  newspapers several* years ago  with the Ukrainian News in  Edmonton, Alberta, and was  later an apprentice with the Merit  Press in Vernon, B. C. More  recently he 'has been working  as production manager of the  Okanagan newspaper Vernon  This Week.  Of Ukrainian ancestry, Josef  was born just after World War II  in a displaced person's camp in  Bavaria, West Germany. Besides Ukrainian and English,  Josef has a working knowledge of  several other languages including  Russian, French, German, and  the Slavic languages. At present  he is studying Greek.  Josef's versatility is not restricted to languages. He is also  a published poet, a choreographer and dancer, and a sculptor.  While in Vernon he carved a  thirty-foot totem pole which is  perhaps the only rectangular  fir pole in the world.  Hall seeks permit  President Henry Hall of Cameo  Lands obtained agreement in  principle, subject to legal advice,  from the Sechelt Village Council  at a regular meeting held on  Wednesday, February 16th, to  his request for a temporary permit to operate a fabrication plant  in Sechelt on Inlet Avenue. Hall  requested that the area be zoned  commercial for about six months.  Hall's intention is to establish  a building immediately for the  fabrication of ferro-cement  panels. His request for a temporary permit is occasioned by  delay in his plans to construct the  plant near the airport.  "The best sand for this type of  cement in North America is to be  found right here in the Sechelt  area," said Hall.   Hall said his  aim was to do something to  alleviate the unemployment position in this region. In reply to  a question from council, Hall  acknowledged that initially at  least his plant would have to  hire people from Vancouver but  said that after two or three  months only one key out of town  person would be left and only  locals would be hired.  Hall said that he was approaching the federal government for  subsidization for his scheme. If  he failed to get this, he said, he  was assured the backing of the  C.P.R.  Hall told council that he would  further study the costs involved  with his associates, include a  performance bond, and -if the  plan is feasible - return to council.  School Board Project  'What should our children be  learning in schools? How effective are the schools in our district? Should all schools have  the same aims and objectives?  Are there local issues in education that concern you?  Early next month, some  parents, trustees, students and  teachers will have the opportunity  to express their views on education through a survey being conducted by Dr. Norman Robinson  of Simon Fraser University.  A task force consisting of local  parents, pupils, educators and  trustees was struck late last year.  This task force will now help Dr.  Robinson in the organization of  the procedure whereby educators  and groups of parents* selected  at random, will meet to make  their feelings known. Approximately 80 parents of students in  Gibsons Elementary School will  be involved in this project. The  : parent participants will be chosen  on a grade by grade basis from  the school using a process of  random selection. This method  of selection ensures that the  views expressed are representative of all parents; not just the  so-called ' 'vocal minority ".  The parents thus selected to  participate will be contacted by  letter. The actual inquiry will  take place during two meetings  next month, March 1st and March  8th. There may be a further  meeting later in the month.  Results ofthe inquiry will be published.  This project is sponsored by  the Sechelt Board of School  Trustees and is being carried out  under the general direction of  Mr. John Denley, District Superintendent of Schools. A similar  procedure is being carried out at  Sechelt Elementary School.  It is hoped that all parents  named as participants will accept  the responsibility of helping to  determine educational direction  for our schools.  '������M0  As a dancer Josef was a featured soloist with Les Feux Follet  folkloric ensemble in Montreal  and also worked with the Montreal Ballet Company, Les Grands  Ballets Canadiens. He has also  appeared with the Seattle Opera  Company and the Edmonton  Light Opera. Josef has directed  many Ukrainian dance ensembles  across Canada and the Western  United States, has had his own  night club act, and is an amateur  theatre enthusiast.  As if all that weren't enough,  Josef won a silver "King's  Medal" as a cadet in the Princess  Patricia Canadian Light Infantry.  The King's medal is awarded to  the best marksman in the British  Commonwealth.  Josef will work on the Coast  News as Advertising Manager  and with, his experience as a  lay-out man will be able to give  our customers the best on-the-  spot service available on the Sunshine Coast. Teamed with  Production Manager Henry Sum,  whose work in advertising design has already caused much  favourable comment in our region, Josef will complete a very  effective advertising team here  at the Coast News.  We feel that Josef is a most  worthwhile addition to our staff  and to the Sunshine Coast  generally.  Cuts affect Resource Society  Some services of the Sunshine fcoast Community Resource  Society will have to be modified because of cuts in the provincial  government's budget, it was learned at the annual general  meeting of the Resource Society last week. Society Treasurer  Frank West reported that a grant of $55,000 had been received  from the provincial government to finance the Minibus Service  and the Senior Citizens Services. West said that this represented a reduction of about five per cent.  The Senior Services and a program on the family had been  hardest hit by the budget cuts instituted by the government.  West said that the government had recognized as "well-  documented" the case for a Senior Citizens Co-ordinator but  such a position could not be filled because ofthe budget cuts.  The Resource Society had also applied to the Minister.of  Human.Resources Bill Van der Zalm for funding for a Family  Conference. The minister wrote back that while he considered  the project a "worthwhile effort" Ino funding could be made  available. Chairman of the Human Resource Society, Agnes  Labonte, reported to the meeting on this matter. She also informed the meeting that May has been designated as Family  Month and a committee had been set up including Father  Nicholson of the Sechelt Roman Catholic Church to arrange  that the month be suitable recognized and to take a look at the  family problems of this region.  A variety of other reports were  also presented at the meeting.  Lou Hume of the Senior Services  Committee reported on programs  for care for the elderly and spoke  of a presentation both visual and  verbal which was available from  the Adult Day Care Association.  The Resource Society passed a  motion in favour, of elevators for  the elderly on the ferries.  Sandra Lindsay reported from  the Sechelt Tot Lot. She said that  twenty-six mothers and thirty-  three children were meeting for  two hours each week in Gibsons  United Church Hall. It was, she  said, valuable social experience  for the pre-schoolers and also  afforded the mothers an oppor  tunity to socialize with others of  similar interest.  The Resource Society is also  sponsoring a committee under the  chairmanship of Probation Officer  Neil Mackenzie to study the problems of alcohol abuse on the Sunshine Coast. The committee will  include an R.C.M.P. officer, the  United Church Minister, and a  representative of Human Resources. Margot Sanderson, Director  ifrom the Non-Medical Use of  Drugs Association, will be a guest  .of-the local committee for three  days starting March 22nd. '  ��� 'In other society business,  Adult Education Co-ordinator  Karin Hoemberg reported on  'efforts being made to cope with  the continuing problems of unemployments in the region.  Hoemberg reported on the situation as it pertained to LIP grants,  Canada Works Program - in  which grants were guaranteed  for five years, and Canada Manpower whose main interest was  in the development of permanent  jobs for the region.  It was moved also at the February 17th meeting that the Community Resource Society would  seek the co-operation of local  doctors in setting up programs  for the dissemination of information concerning preventive  medicine.  A spokesman for the Home-  maker Services said that there  were forty-one people on the  Society's hiring list, of whom  approximately thirty-six were  actively employed en a part-time  basis. The average time spent  in each home was three or four  hours. "We are definitely serving a need. Our service is  wanted, deserved, appreciated,  and needed," said the spokesman emphatically.  It is understood that more  people to work in the Sechelt  area is a definite need. The  government set fee for the service is $5.00 per hour.  Because of difficulties occasioned by provincial budget cuts,  the annual Spring Dance organized by the Society looms as important this year. It will be organized by representative volunteers ���;> from the various society  committees with Maureen Kirby  as Chairman.  Mrs.  Bea  Wray  celebrates  her  victory  with  a  hot dog after winning  a trip  to  Reno  at the  Lions Reno Night which was held in the Gibsons  Legion last Saturday.   Gibsons Harbour  Egmont paretic       et  Minibus  Egmont Community School  Society had its first Core- Curriculum meeting on Thursday,  February 10th. The Egmont  school children were represented  by a 100% parent turnout and  several other interested residents  some of whom brought items  relevant to the discussion:  1. Core curriculum pamphlets.  2. A tape-recorded talk show with  John Meredith, the Superintendent of Educational Programmes,  and Bill Broadley, President of  the British Columbia Teachers  Federation.  3. A BCTF paper, Essential  Educational Experiences, based  in part on their May 1976 document, The Rights and Responsibilities of Children.  4. Several journal and news-  media articles.  At one point, participants  noted that the Ministry of Education had its own concepts and  implementations of "core curriculum" well advanced. It then  became a reasonable question  to ask whether the Ministry  seriously intended meaningful  participation by teachers and  parents. Support for this point  could be found in Dr. McGeer's  statement about the BCTF  wasting money on advertisements  and the still unofficial announcement that February 28th will be  the final day for public input  This gathering also discussed  the concept of Essential or Core  learning experiences, and noticed  that the important hows and  whens of learning, as well as  mention of the Provincial Learning Assessment Program (PLAP  a companion to CORE), are  omitted in the Ministry's booklet. The what of learning - the  content - was also discussed, and  while it was agreed that some  essential or basic learning is  important, it was questioned  whether this can be uniform for  all children throughout the  province, and whether it could  realistically be prescribed from  the top down.  Part of a 5-page 1974 Ministry  of Education document, The Public School System Directions for  Change, was read:  "Boards of School Trustees  must elaborate the core programme in response to local  experience, in keeping with the  criteria of an effective system."  "The professional staff of each  school, in consultation with  parents and students, will have.  final responsibility for the programme. The goal is to ensure  that the programme meet the  educational needs of the school  community and every individual  student within it. Appropriate  mechanisms for accountability  must be developed."  service  popular  The annual general meeting of  the Sunshine Coast Community  Resource Society held in Sechelt  on Thursday, February 17th,  learned that after the usual slow  period following the Christmas  season the Minibus Service is  now carrying a full complement  of passengers on 'most days.  Regional residents are becoming  more aware ofthe service through  the local papers, the meeting was  told. The service is provided  along all the areas of our coast  from Port Mellon to Pender  Harbour with stops all along the  way.  The main destinations are still  the Sechelt clinic, physiotherapy,  and Day Care, but the Gibsons  Clinic, the Sechelt chiropractor,  and the Sunshine School are  running close behind. Last month  the Minibus Service had the  pleasure of carrying twelve  patients from the extended care  unit at the hospital to and from a  luncheon at the Golden City  restaurant in Sechelt.  For those of you who are interested in numbers, the service  carried 774 passengers during  the month of January and the  minibus travelled 3,348 miles.  The Gibsons Harbour Development project, spearheaded by  Olaf Klassen was given second  and third reading by the Gibsons  Council last Tuesday. Although  Klassen failed to appear as  arranged with the appropriate  legal documents, it was felt that  by giving the proposal further  readings it was not giving him  the green light to go ahead with  construction. It would, however,  make it possible, to build his complex in the bay for this coming  tourist season, if council felt  that Gibsons would benefit from  it.  Mayor Labonte acknowledged  that nothing would be done until  he knew the principle shareholders in the company.  A docu  ment is on its way to Klassen  from Tahiti, but as yet has not  arrived.  Alderman Hume said, "I  feel it is a very poor form that  Klassen did not show up for this  meeting."  There is a possibility the dbg  catcher may have to play a dual  role in the community. He may  also be. on the prowl for parking  violators:-'Council feels that this  is a very ticklish problem," as it  would have a detrimental effect  on merchants if their customers  start getting their cars towed  away while shopping. A meeting,  has been arranged between members of council and the Harbour  Business Association to try and  solve part of the problem.  Gibsons swimming pool  Mr. Clay Corby, the swimming  pool chairman for the Kinsmen,  met with the Gibsons council  last week to exchange ideas on  the upcoming pool. The Kinsmen  have been doing an in depth  feasability study for the past  few years and passed some valuable information on to the council.  Mr. Corby stated that the  estimated $150,000 for an uncovered 25 metre Olympic pool  would in actual fact be, by his  calculations closer to $225,000.  The advantages derived from  going ahead with a covered pool  as opposed to an uncovered  one right away would be that  when the time came to put a roof  on the latter building, costs  would probably go up. Also by  the very nature of the design, the  later addition would be more  expensive than doing it all at  once.  An uncovered pool, Mr. Corby  said, can be used during the  months of June, July, August  and September, whereas a  covered one can be in use twelve  months a year. A large part of  the running costs, he felt, would  be defrayed by renting the pool  to the schools, and if it was operational during the summer alone,  the schools would be open for  ' only one of these months.  In reply to this, Alderman  Metzler indicated, that if necessary money would be diverted  from other funds to support it,  and while he would like to see a  covered pool from the beginning,  the financing was just not* available at this time. It is too late  for Areas E and F to come in with  us this year, and to make use of  the grant we have to go ahead in  the near future. An air bubble  might be the answer for next  winter, Metzler said. Although  he knew that there was no way  Gibsons could support the operational costs of the pool, Alderman  Metzler felt confident the surrounding areas would contribute  in the future.  A pool committee is being  formed and representatives from  Areas E and F will be invited to  take part in it. Mr. Corby was  invited to accompany the village  clerk Jack.Copeland and Alderman Ted Hume to Vancouver on  Friday for more information on  the pool.  Shutdown at Port Mellon  temporarily averted  The first spring snowdrops peep shyly at the sunlight.  The Coast News learned this  week that the possible shutdown  of the Canadian Forest Products  mill at Port Mellon has been  temporarily averted. The crises  situation at the mill was eased  last week with the arrival of five  tank cars of chlorine and six  tank cars of sodium chlorate.  The crises had been caused by  a continuing strike at chemical  plants in the area. The relief  chemicals are being shipped here  from B. C. Chemicals Ltd. of  Prince George.  Mill manager Bill Hughes  told the Coast News, "We are  working on a day to day basis  hopeful that the strike will end  before our operation is forced  to a closedown.''  oast every 2.

Socreds  The cut-back in local services offered  by the Community Resource Society  for senior citizens and family groups  caused by the cut-backs in money made  available by the Socred government in  Victoria mirrors what is happening all  over the province. The cuts made by the  Socreds seem to be of two kinds. First  they cut out services to the elderly, the  infirm, the ailing, the handicapped.  Second they cut taxes to the sons of millionaires and large corporations so that,  we are told, jobs can be created.  Personal income taxes are projected  to increase by 36% over last year while  corporate income taxes will increase only  12%. Personal income taxes together  with the 7% social services tax will  account for 48.44% of total revenues. By  comparison, in the, fiscal year which  ended March 31st, 1976, these revenue  sources accounted only for 37.6%.  Perhaps this is a good time to take  stock of this government and the values  it holds prior to the traditional massive  giveaways which will undoubtedly  preceed the next election.  Regional Board  The S.C.R.D. after five weeks of deliberation is no closer now to a decision  on garbage collection services than they  were when the tenders were opened.  The question is passed on, one meeting  to the next rather off-handedly considering the fact that the present contract expires February 28th. The decision  making process which is the regional  board's function in this matter cannot be  furthered by idle threats of "maybe  having to go into the business for ourselves". If any one member of the board,  perhaps the Public Utilities Committee  chairman had gone and presented to the  board a proper financial breakdown of  the bids the only decision left to be made  would be whether or not weekly service  is required in the regional area.  The garbage collection area comprises  that section of our coast from Port Mellon  to just beyond Secret Cove excluding the  village of Gibsons, taking the newspapers mailing list of 5,500 residences,  subtract 1,300 for the village, another  300 in the Pender Harbour area, plus a  high figure of 900 inaccesible and you still  have 3,000 pick-ups at $2.00 per household per month, or 25 cents per can.  Considering that the contractor must run  two trucks; each with a driver and two  swampers at a rate of $900 per month  for six men for a total of $5,400 per month  plus service and maintain his equipment  even the highest bid falls under the classification of justifiable expense.  Yes, gentlemen, one does balk at  jumping from $3,800 to $6,000 per month  but double the service at less than double  the cost isn't such a bad deal. Had you  done your homework you would see that  there is really only one question that re-  quires''your attention. Is weekly pick-up  a necessity?  Resources  Attention is drawn to the various pieces  of news copy that appear this week concerning the work of the Sunshine Coast  Community Resources Association. The  society provides assistance for the elderly, the infirm and for the young and very  young and, as such, is well worthy of  maximum regional support.  It stands in need of additional volunteers to implement its various social  programs throughout the regional district. If you have a little spare time  why not call Mrs. Betty Wray in Sechelt  at 885-3821 and volunteer to help.  The Homemakers Association comes  under the umbrella of the Community  Resource Society and stands in need of  part-time hired help to aid the elderly  and infirm at home. This is particularly  true in the Sechelt area. In this case if  you would like part-time work of this type  phone 886-7415. Mrs. Bernice Tyson is  the Chairman of the Homemakers Committee and will welcome your call. Get  involved in helping others.  from the files of Coast News  10 YEARS AGO  Please note:    My Fair Lady is now  playing   at  the  Twilight  Theatre and  Alfred   Hitchcock's   "Suspenseful Sex  Mystery".  15 YEARS AGO  Improved ferry service this spring was  forecast Tuesday night by Hon.

The process is very gradual. We  slip gently through the seasons  here from winter into spring,  from spring to summer, from  summer to fall and back to winter  like well-changed gears. Sometimes we even slip her' into  automatic and it all just seems  like the same damn gear.  I spent three winters in  Dawson City in the Yukon in the  middle sixties and there spring  comes in listening to the music  of a very different drummer. I  have often said that if I had my  preference I would choose to  spend the months of May and  June in Dawson City for the rest  of my life.  Of course that would be  cheating, for.to feel the ardour of��?  a northern spring one must feel*  the despair of a northern winter.  The snow falls gently in Dawson  City about in October and stays to  May. In November the river  freezes. It is forty below, the  days are growing drastically  shorter every day and there's  nothing it can do but get worse  for months yet. In January the  sun doesn't rise above the southern hills, it's sixty-five below  and the few grey hours of daylight are shrouded in a permanent, motionless ice fog out of  which the occasional resident  stumbles past bundled like a bear  against the cold and you echo  Christ's cry from the cross  "Father, father why has thou  forsaken me?"  But in January, too, you begin  to watch eagerly the golden line  of sunlight creeping daily lower  on the neighbouring hills. By  the end of the month you are'  walking to Front Street where  the sun comes first by the frozen  river, a mile-wide here and two  thousand miles to the sea, and  standing for a few brief minutes  in the promised warmth of win-  tery sunlight. In April the sun  comes striding back and again,  and oh so blessedly, the sound  of running water is heard in the  land and the resurrection has  begun.  The break-up of the ice on the  Yukon River is the opening curtain. A line is strung from a  post in the middle of the river to  the office of the Canadian National Telecommunications on  Front Street where it is attached  to a clock. When the ice moves  sufficiently to move the post and  break the connection the clock  stops. At that point a siren goes  off and the whole population  whatever the hour of night or  day or the degree of their sobriety  gathers at the river bank to see  the ice move.  One year there was a personable young American on the  staff of the school with me and I  met him on the river bank shortly  after the siren went off. He was  in his Volkswagon van with his  wife called Star who had been a  cheerleader and couldn't forget  it, was a registered Rupublican  in the days of the Goldwater  presidential campaign, had  worked for the C.I.A. in Washington and stopped talking to me in  November when I observed at  a dinner party that Winston  Churchill hadn't entirely been a  plaster cast saint. With him, too,  his mother-in-law who was visiting from Florida.  The ice was sliding whispering  by beside us, a mile-wide and  moving at last after six months  of stillness. "It's not very exciting," he said. Both women  studiously ignored me. "It's not  bad," I said. He drove off. He  wasn't gone five minutes when  the ice jammed at the bend of  the river to the north of town and  the river was partially dammed  and the whole thing began to  rise perceptibly.  Dawson City is built on a frozen  mud flat at the conjunction of  the Klondike and Yukon rivers  and Front Street is actually a  raised gravel dyke to guard  against the high waters of spring.  Two of my three Yukon springs  saw it prove inadequate and the  town flooded.  The teacher with the wife and  mother-in-law had barely vanished when it became apparent  that it was serious ice-jam and  the river was coming over the top.  A young bank clerk called  Rover Lavoie and I began evacuating the money from the vault of  the Bank of Commerce which  has survived the moving of the  ice miraculously since the days  when Robert Service worked  there right on the very bank of  the river. It only took us fifteen  minutes to move the money to a  higher elevation in the bank, but  when we emerged from the bank  the wooden sidewalk had floated  away and a pick-up truck was  backed up to the bank steps to  rescue us.  Perhaps I'll say more about  the floods another time, for the  break-up of the ice is only the  opening act in the great drama of  resurrection. I particularly liked  to watch it at a place called  Suicide Point which you reached  by a path that went across the  rockfall face of the. Midnight  Dome at the north end of town.  There was a rock ledge halfway  along to the deserted village of  Moosehide where only the church  and two small cabins still stood.  The ledge was directly above the  bend of the river and as the  spring progressed you could lie  there in the sunshine which now  lasted nearly twenty-four hours  a day with crocuses and wild  roses blooming around you and  all the birds back and watch the  great quarter-mile wide ice floes  sailing to the sea. Once we  measured one stranded on Front  Street and I couldn't measure it's  thickness standing on my toes  and stretching my finger tips -  at least eight or nine feet thick.  Sometimes from my vantage  point on Suicide Point baking  happily in the-heat from the hot  rock I could watch them jam and  collect at the bend, and as the  enormous pressure of ice built  up behind them, great cracks  would appear across the surface  of the ice-floes and they would  rear and roar and crack and go.  Later in the spring the edges  crumble and they sail to their  oblivion with less complaint.  The magic of rebirth remains  constant everywhere, however,  and though here on this blessed  coast it enters as to the music of  a muted flute it is nonetheless  a precious time.  WHY SHOULD NOT OLD MEN BE MAD ?  Why should not old men be mad?  Some have known a likely lad  That had a sound fly-fisher's wrist  Turn to a drunken journalist;  A girl that knew all Dante once  Live to bear children to a dunce;  A Helen of social welfare dream,  Climb on a wagonette to scream.  Some think it a matter of course that chance  Should starve good men and bad advance,  That if their neighbours figured plain,  As though upon a lighted screen,  No single story would they find  Of an unbroken happy mind,  A finish worthy of the start.  Young men know nothing of this sort,  Observant old men know it well;  And when they know what old books tell,  And that no better can be had,  Know why an old man should be mad.  W. B. Yeats  Slings & Arrows  if^George Matthews  ;U  I'm getting a little tired of  writing about schools; I'm there  all day and when I get home I  like to do my best to rejoin the  human race for a while. I would  however like to say a few words  about the business of the parent's  meeting I said I was going to  attend last week, then I'll get off  the topic, hopefully for good.  The thing I really wanted to  know at that meeting was what  problem the Ministry of Education's "Core Curriculum" was  supposed to solve. The meeting  was held in the Gibson's Elementary School library and was attended by thirty or forty parents  and teachers. Now whenever  you get a few teachers together  you're going to have yourself  quite a number of differing  opinions and you know yourself  that whenever you get twenty or  so parents together you're going  to have something like forty  different opinions. As a consequence the "problem" I was  attempting to identify never did  come across too clearly. After  the meeting, sitting in my favourite thinking establishment,  teasing a cool glass of ale, I  tried to put together what everybody was trying to get at.  It seems that the whole furor  is a result of what somebody  once called the "scathing denunciation syndrome". I don't recall the exact names or details  but this is the way it came across  to me. Apparently, Socrates  J. Braindrop, assistant associate  professor of pedantry at the  Pouce Coupe Institute of Advanced Agricultural Waste and  Mind Bending issued a "scathing  denunciation" of the entire  "rotten to the core" educational  structure by declaring that 35%  of the students in his first year  class could not pass a simple test  in elementary obfuscation. He  declared that this proved, beyond  the shadow of a doubt, that most  high school students are illiterate,  cretinous and dumb.  A second scathing denunciation  soon followed when the local  chapter of the Clean Living,  Bible Thumping and Anti-Sex  League leaped onto Braindrop's  bandwagon declaring that,  "Today's schools are just another  manifestation of the decadence,  corruption and general decline of  moral standards infecting our  society." As a result, someone  referred to as "the white knight  of Bible Billy's kill a commie for  Christ cabinet", (I didn't catch  the name except that someone  kept making obscure references  to ears.), stumbled into action  with the "final solution to the  education problem ".  If you can make heads or tails  from all of that nonsense then  you're a better man than I am.  You'll have to admit that over  the years the women's movement  has achieved remarkable success.  When you consider that it was  not until World War I that  women could vote, or that it took  until 1929 in Canada for women  to even be considered as legal  persons, then we would have to  believe that the revolution in  the status of women has been perhaps the most persistently successful revolution in the liberation  ofthe individual in this century.  The fact that women still have  many battles to win and the  apparent fact that the current  campaign is beginning to lose  some of its steam should hot discourage anyone. Let's face it,  women still are discriminated  against in many fields; banking  offers little opportunity for advancement, schools persist in  many forms of stereotyping;  many professions, such as medicine, tend to discourage women  careerists, and despite the large  number of women in the teaching  profession, administrative jobs  are still largely held by men.  The long history of the women's  movement tells us however, that  the barriers presented to women,  these current practices by some of  our more traditionally staid institutions are not long for this  world, and as a man I find this  encouraging.  Perhaps the greatest benefit  of the current phase of the  women's movement has been  that it has obliged men to reassess their traditional role of  responsible provider and for  those of us fortunate enough to  be associated with strong and  freedom loving women, it has  been a genuinely liberating experience.  Looking out the back window,  as I sit here typing, I see that  my ewe is about to provide the  farm with her usual two or three  lambs, so on this beautiful spring  like morning I would like to get  back farming. Let me leave you  with some fascinating phrases  picked up at, of all things, a  teacher's conference I attended  last Friday. This should keep  you thinking for a few days:  "relative causation sequence",  "terminal exit standards", and  "the validation of standard cognitive criteria".  Toge the mess  Wherever villages are all over the  world there is a rivalry between neighbouring villages. The Sunshine Coast is  of course no exception. In some ways  this rivalry can be a healthy thing, in  other ways not so. In the case of the Sunshine Coast, we here are one geographic  region and a very attractive one at that.  If we are to stand together against the  outside pressures which are bound to  increase in favour of unlimited development and'runaway growth we would be  well advised to develop a sense of oneness in this unique and beautiful area.  As the British knew well in the days of  the Empire, to divide is to rule. We'll  either stand together or fall apart.  />  h  >, LETTERS to the EDITOR  Coast News, February 22,1977.  Regional Finance  Editor:  May I use your paper, please,  to reply to the "irritated taxpayer's" letter, appearing in  your last issue.  Dear '/irritated taxpayer":  It is always nice to hear of  somebody, who appreciates his  own municipal government, but  it does not add to the appreciation, when implying at the same  time that another body is so much  worse. One is* not enhanced by  downgrading the other. You and  the other citizens of Gibsons  should not short-sell the Region,  which supplies quite satisfactory  services to the citizens for whom  it is directly responsible, but also  has made certain services possible to all member municipalities, which were not provided before the advent of the Regional  District. . Further do not forget  that, whether you like it or not,  you are in fact also members of  the District.  To wave the banner of self-  reliance, independence and being  something quite separate and  special before our eyes and to  claim that you can look after  yourselves may not show too  much enlightened- self-interest.  This stance may have cost the  good citizens of Gibsons already  some money and most likely will  add to their tax burden even more  in times to come. Have you not  heard of "group insurance",  which gives cheaper coverage or  more coverage for the same  money, when taken out by a  group than by an individual?  Or are the reasons why people  form co-operatives not applicable  to the citizens of Gibsons?  Water, sewers, fire protection  and now recreation can eat up  great chunks of taxes in a small  Films  Editor:  Driving past the theatre  one  evening I was surprised and  pleased to note that the film  playing was the highly acclaimed  "The Trials of Oscar Wilde".  "No point going to Vancouver for  a move when there are films of  this calibre right here at home,"  I thought, secretly gloating that  I could live in a place as intrinsically beautiful as the Sunshine  Coast and still receive some of  the theatrical advantages of the  big city. "It must be true that  this is a haven for artists and  intellectuals who have sought  seclusion and peace but who  cherish the stimulation of exposure to the latest in the arts!''  But alas! My bubble burst  when, upon entering the theatre  just before curtain time I found  myself to be the third person of  the "crowd". There were 3 of  us there to see this wonderful  movie! Now there was no way our  admission could even cover the  wages of the girl selling goodies  at the candy counter, let alone  pay for the rental of the film, yet  the theatre owner's sense of service to his patrons over-rode our  offers to return, the following  evening, and saying he hated to  penalize people who were interested in good films, it was "Oh  with the show!" First, the previews. And what a horror!  Coming next was "Death Weekend", and without wanting to  stimulate your imagination to  more gruesomeness than neces-  community. But if the service  costs can be distributed over a  wider tax base, as represented  by a Region, such servings, instead of being a 'pie in the sky'  can come within the reach of an  individual citizen's pocket book.  However to achieve such wider  cost distribution, a certain  amount of co-operation by the  citizens of Gibsons with the rest  of the Sunshine Coast is necessary. Co-operation and integration in certain limited programs  has its disadvantages as well.  Gibsons would not any longer be  the "only pebble on the beach",  as their needs and aspirations  would have to be blended in with  the overall requirements of the  rest of the group. So compromises and accommodations  would have to be worked out  between the members of the  group, which best suit the needs  of everybody within certain cost  and time frames.  Whether the citizens of Gibsons wish to join the Sunshine  Coast to make things possible,  which are impossible for a smaller  group, or whether they would  rather do it all by themselves  is their own choice. Nobody  forces you to join the group, even  when the Region properly and  dutybound asks all members of  the District about some specifics.  If Gibsons citizens want to "go-  it-alone", fine - that is your  privilege - but by the same token,  would you stay within your boundaries, stop moving in on us and  leave the rest of us alone to do  our "own thing".  F. West  President, West Gibsons Heights  Ratepayers' Association  sary, let me describe the movie  as a rampage of destruction and  violence to both property and  people that left my mouth hanging open in disbelief - and dismay, mqre at the thought that  susceptible young minds (and  old) were being exposed to it  than at the revolting scenes themselves. I decided that, if the  opportunity presented itself, I  would express my feelings to the  owner and ask him not to '.show  the film. But I had a funny feeling somewhere that I knew what  the situation was.  Sure enough, after thoroughly  enjoying the intense and sensitive  movie about Wilde, I chanced to  see the owner as I was leaving.  "Please don't show that next  movie," I gulped, "it's horrible!" "I know," he said,  "but I have to pay for this one  somehow, and the place will be  full for it." My fear was confirmed. In order to bring in good  quality films, the "trash" must  be shown to ,cover the costs,  because for some reason people  are more interested, in seeing  the things we don't want to  happen in the world around us  than the things that could inspire us to greater heights. And  as for the movie theatre owner,  even though he doesn't like  showing these films either,  people who come to see his shows  dictate what movies are screened,  and if he. wants to meet his expenses he has to bring in the  Church Services  Roman Catholic Services  Rev.

Most parents readily  know and would agree that all  children are not equal, in many  aspects.  The fact that a core curriculum  is set on an imaginary "Average  Child" is true, however, it gives  a measure to know where the  child stands. One very great  item against "local" is a child  that moves from one school district to another, especially midterm. One school has one set  of standards, the next is completely different. This is very confusing to the child.  Another factor is the employers. He should be allowed  the privilege of knowing that any  student who has a graduation  certificate from any particular  grade has mastered a basic core  programme.  I personally would be very  saddened if my children were to  find that what they were taught  was of a lower standard than  another school.'  It could also come about that  children from a lower standard  school could be faced with difficulty in obtaining a job even  though the child is of above  average intelligence.  I personally can not see why  we cannot have the best parts of  both programmes. A set standard, so that those who achieve  it can enjoy the honour, with  special assistance to those who  have problems.  Mrs. Karen Adomson  RR #1, Madeira Park  VON 2HO  big sellers.  I've heard talk lately that some  people feel there should be a  second movie theatre on the  peninsula so we can have some  "good films". Where are these  people when good films are  shown now? Let me suggest  that people - WE - begin to patronize the better productions in  the theatre that already exists,  and with enough support it may  become unnecessary to bring in  second-rate films' to finance them.  The end result could be high  quality films consistently being  available to us, and a programme  of movies that would tempt the  most demanding screen buff and  put the "art" back in the cinema!  Franny "Filmgoer" Berger  Congratulations  Editor:  I want to commend and thank  the Coast News for its detailed  and impartial report on the  S.C.R.D. meeting, that took place  on the 10th of February 1977 in  Sechelt.

Peter Bandi  Ferry Food  Editor:  It was reported in last week's  Coast News that the B. C. Ferries  have established a local liason  committee in Gibsons in order to  give our grievances and suggestions a hearing before the  admininistrators of the ferry  system.  The committee's next meeting  is scheduled for March 1st, and  the topic to be discussed is the  food service on the ferry.  No doubt there are a number of  individuals and groups who have  some suggestions about food  services.  We urge all interested individuals or organizations to contact  the local committee immediately  and make their grievances  known so that the committee can  speak on your behalf on March  1st during their meeting with  the'Director of Food Services.

Ferry Names  Editor:  Further my conversation with  you this morning.  . As I watched the new big ferry  come gliding slowly in to Langdale this morning, it suddenly  seemed as though we had all become quite estrangled in these  times. What were we doing being  served by these great fine vessels  with names of places so far re-  oved from our area - New Westminster, Tsawassen, the Islands?  Our ferries used to have names  related to the district they served-  Sunshine. Coast, Langdale,  Sechelt. When I mentioned this  to you, you said that the ferry  service is so unpredictable and  the plans of the Government so  indecisive at the moment that  nobody knows what ships are ever  going to be where and when! ���  Well, if things ever do settle  down into some kind of stable,  reliable order, my suggestion is  that the names of the two vessels which will then be serving  us be re-christened: Sunshine  Coast Queen II and Langdale  Queen II. I promised to send you  this letter with this idea, so that  you could print it and sound out  public opinion on the subject.  And let's not hear any wisecracks like: 'We don't care  WHAT you name those ferries,  as long as they come when they  are called and should come -  oftener and oftener, and at  better and better rates!''

The topic for this meeting is:  The Pattern of Future Communities. Is it conceivable to live  in a society free from injustice,  prejudice, and violence? Baha'is  believe that it is, and that the  opportunity is already, in a very  real sense, available to us. This  session will include an examina  tion of the social; political and  spiritual aspect of Baha'i communities as an embryonic pattern  for a future World Society.  The organic unity of the world  necessarily goes hand in hand  with the spiritual unity of the  entire human race. This new'  civilization can be built upon a  Universal unity only by a new sort  of man. The failure to recognize  this fundamental concept is the  reason for the disintegration of  all the systems, projects and doctrines of the past. You are invited to join us Saturday for  discussion on this theme. For  information phone 886-2078.  Fish Talk  By Jerry Ward  This week I would like to get  down to the prime subjects in  the aquarium, the fish. I will  talk, in this issue, about one of  the beginners easiest fish to  raise, the swordtails.  The Latin name for the sword-  tail   is   Xiphophorus,   and   they  range in the wild from Southern  Mexico   to   Guatemala.      Their  habits are, a variable temperament,    with    some    specimens  showing little or no aggression  to other fish, while others, usually  large  males,   are   out   and   out  bullies.    Their water can range  from slightly alkaline to slightly  acid.     My own  aquariums  are  slightly  acid,   6.8,   and  I   have  never had  any  trouble  getting  more  swordtails   from   the   offspring.   They range in size from  five inches in the wild specimens  to three or four in the aquarium  raised specimens.   The food requirements of these fish are typical aquarium foods  plus  algae  or some other form of vegetation.  Always be sure there is variety  in their food.    When I can get  . them, I feed my swords on tubifex  -. worms,    alternating    with    the  '��� white   worms   I   raise   myself.  ��� These  and  dry  foods   seem  to  r create healthy, active, breeding  - swordtails.   The swordtails come  in   colours   ranging   from   red,  green,   black,   gold,   albino,   to  patterns in all the above colours.  The swordtails are livebearing  ��� fish, meaning they give birth to  live young.   A large healthy female can give birth to as many  ' as 150 little ones.   The gestation  period is about one month, also  ; once the female has mated she  ; could be separated and have as  ; many as  six broods of young.  | This is because the female has  ; the ability to withold the sperm of  : the male for that length of time..  The swordtails are a beautiful  fish and are quite easily raised.  For   the    beginning   aquariast,  young or old, this is one of the  first fish you should own.    Because  of their  hardiness,   nice  colouring   and   their   ability   to  'stand  up   to   variations   in   the  water,  these fish are  probably  the most popular of any of the  ���tropicals.

They were the glad-sad coming-  togethers of each and every scatterbrained era. Here and often  only here, the characters foregathered like a last-act finale on  the stage-floors of uncounted  halls to frolic and stalk through  the measures of the glad ritual.  A dance was a place where you  could hold in your arms for a  brief instant, that golden girl  beyond attainment who belonged  to another man. A dance was a  place of fantasy and reality where  we peacocked in our Saturday  best, wearing the invisible masks  that were sometimes dropped.  A dance was a summit-conference  of frivolity while the workaday  would ground on beyond thin  walls of music. A dance hung at  the week's end like a prize to  strive for.  I suppose it would be possible  at this point to delve into the  dance-ritual as an academic  might; . probe it to antiquity  through the annals of every race;  cite its significance as a life-  symbol and element-invoker.  However, I am by no means an  academic and will leave such  theorizing and wool-gathering  to them.  I'm concerned with the  actual, experiential dances of my  memory which are the only ones  I can honestly profess to know a  damn thing about. I was never  what could be called a great  dancer. I possess one rudimentary waltz-step, a vague knowledge of the schottische, a stiff,  relatively-inept jiving-style and  not much else. This is no drawback in these free-form, do-your-  own-thing days where almost  anything goes as long as your  feet are moving. In more formal  times, not-so-many years back, it  did present a bit of a problem  but I somehow lucked through.  If they were playing something  you didn't know how to do, you  could always retire to the John  for a small smash of whatever  was popular that season.  I think my very first exposure  to dancing in any form must have  been at the two-room school at  Port Mellon around 1941 or 2.  The teacher who was attempting  to handle the senior grades that  year, a small, earnest woman  called Miss Steeves, hit on the  . brainwave that eight of we older  students should perform a brief  history of the dance for a school  concert. The four girls concerned  were delighted with the idea.  We boys were considerably less  enthusiastic, being at that ambiguous age just before adolescence where rough and tumble  hell-raising took precedence over  any dealings with the opposite  sex. We were beginning to play  post-office and spin-the-bottle  with them at parties but dancing -  and in public, at that - still  seemed very much of a panty-  waist enterprise.  Miss Steeves was quite adamant about her project however  and - oh so half-heartedly -  we began to rehearse. I felt like  a bumbling dolt as I moved clumsily through the stately measures  of a French Minuet with my  partner, a tall, dark-haired, not-  unpretty girl called Evelyn Cad-  wallader. My chums were equally ill-at-ease as we pirouetted  painfully to some eighteenth-  century air while the redoubtable  Miss Steeves manned the tinny  wind-up gramophone. Her brief-  history was to consist of three  segments. When we'd managed  to achieve some minimal degree  of proficiency at the Minuet, she  advanced us to the waltz which  was a good deal easier. We  essayed this to an obscure Broadway showtune called Too Many  Girls whose unctuous lyrics still  haunt me. From this we progressed to the finale - a jitterbug  number done to the tune of  Tommy Dorsey's Boogie Woogle.  This, for some reason, gave us  the most trouble of all. We were  woefully clumsy and I still wince  a little whenever I hear the prefabricated riffs of that old big-  band chestnut.  Nonetheless, we persevered  at our reluctant terpsichory and-  although none of the boys would  have admitted it at the time - we  began to derive a certain unexpected enjoyment, especially  from the waltzing. When curtain-  time cold-footedly arrived we  trooped nervously onstage and -  after the first stab .of panic had  abated - we moved self-consciously through our paces with no more  than a couple of minor fluffs,  before a pre-sold audience of  beaming parents.  Having thus survived this  obligatory initiation to the art of  the light-fantastic in more-or-less  one piece, we boys immediately  dismissed the whole business and  returned to the harum-scarum  activities with which we felt  so much easier. The girls of  course, irrevocably hooked,  continued to practice with each  other in Evelyn Cadwallader's  living-room after school. So it  went. Suddenly adolescence was  upon us with all its traumas and  alterings. And before too long  we found ourselves moving in  a bewilderment of changed-  perceptive with the transformed  girls over the first real dance  floors of our lives. Thus we began  to dance the past away and long  years later, albeit in somewhat  different guise, most of us are  dancing yet.  ��� CBC Radio  Coast News, February 22,1977.  Books with  John  Faustmanh  archy and mehitabel  This unlikely little book is one  of my all-time favorites. Each of  its short prose poems was originally a newspaper column written  by Don Marquis in 1916. Collected into book form by Doubleday  Press, it introduces us to the two  most improbable characters we  are ever likely to meet. Archy,  you see, is a cockroach, and his  old friend Mehitabel is a cat.  Late at night in'the newspaper  office, when everyone has gone  home; Archy emerges from his  home in the floorboards to type  up the memoirs of his ways and  days. His method.of composition  is to jump from one key to another  on the typewriter. He's too small  to use the capital key, so all of  his stuff comes out in lower  case letters. Loosely based on  the theory of reincarnation,  Archy spins a tale of funny,  philosophical, insect insight.  Here he is explaining his present  existence:  ' 'before my soiil/ migrated into  the body/ of a cockroach/ it inhabited the carcase/ of a vers  libre poet/ some vers libre poets  are beautiful/ but i was not/ i  had a little blond mustache/ that  everyone. thought was a mistake."  His friend Mehitabel the cat,  presently in the middle of her  ninth life, lives in a nearby garbage can. She insists that in a  previous life she was Cleopatra,  and although she's fallen on hard  times now, we can't help but  believe her. She talks wistfully  of the good old days, the pillows  she lay on, the saucers full of  cream, "to hell with anything  unrefined/ has always been my  motto," she says. A lot of  Archy's stories concern her:  Mehitabel is always getting into  scrapes with beery gentlemen  torn cats, or getting into the  family way, or yowling in back  alleys, having boots thrown at  her. She doesn't let her hard  life . get her down, though.  "Toujours gai" is another of  her mottos, and she's always  equal to her unkind fate. She  keeps on dancing.  "thank god i'm a lady/ and  class will tell/ you hear me sadie/  thank god i'm a lady/ my past is  shady/ but wotthehell/ thank god  i'm a lady/ and class will tell...  there's a dance or two/ in the old  dame yet."  prohibition then riddles the land,  "my reverend juicelessness/  (says Archy) this is a beerless  country, well well said the royal/  dessication/ my political opponents back home always maintained/ that i would wind up in  hell/ and it seems they had the  right dope/ and with these hopeless words/ the unfortunate residuum/ gave a great cough of  despair/ and turned to dust and  debris/ right in my face/ it being  the only time/ i ever actually saw  anybody/ put the cough/ into  sarcophagus."  Archy's wanderings take him  to all the unlikely corners of the  insect world. He writes about  dissipated hornets grown old and  gouty from eating bar flies, a  forward lady bug that follows him  around after he's saved her from  falling into a bowl of stew, a  lightning bug from the country  whom they nick name "Broadway", and Warty Bliggens, a  toad who considers himself to  be the centre of the universe.  Still, the world is full of hazards.  It's difficult to convey the  whimsical, chuckling nature of  this book. The tales are wry  and ironic, and always tinged  with a bit of cosmic absurdity.  Archy has a fine sense of humour,  a radical view of man's injustice  to insects, and a philosophy that's  intricate and wise. I suspect the  book is still in print, and in its  funny, nonsensical view of things  stands completely by itself. But  here are a few maxims from the  multi-legged author to close out  this column, for Archy's stuff  is its own best recommendation.  "procrastination is the art/ of  keeping/ up with yesterday"  "every cloud/ has its silver/  lining but it is/ sometimes a  little/ difficult to get it to/ the  mint". And finally, one more  for those moments when we are  taking ourselves very seriously:  "insects have/ their own point/  of view about/ civilization a man/  thinks he amounts/ to a great  deal/ but to a/ flea or a/ mosquito  a/ human being is/ merely something/ good to eat."  There are three programs this  week which may be of particular  interest to Sunshine Coast listeners. Between Ourselves,  Saturday at 9:05 p.m. looks at  that special and very important  fraternity, Volunteer Firemen.  There will be stories from the  early days, the role of firemen  in emergency situations, their  importance to small communities  and of course a look at the service  as it is today. The program was  prepared in the Maritimes and  may also serve as a common bond  between very different parts of  the country. We all hold our  volunteer, firemen in high regard,  it is an essential service in a  country where most people live  in houses of wood construction.  Ideas on Sunday at 4:05 p.m.  will discuss patterns of life and  death with internationally known  psychiatrist Elizabeth Kubler-  Ross. She has earned the nickname of the "death and dying  lady" from her work with terminally ill patients, but there is  nothing morbid or depressing  about her attitude and convictions - she's a comforting and  reassuring person to listen to.  And for Opera buffs who  weren't able to attend the recent  V.S.O. production of Mignon by  Ambroise Thomas in the Queen  Elizabeth Theatre, CBC taped the  performance for you.

He plays an embattled loner not  unlike the character he portrayed  a few years ago in the Italian  made movies that first brought  him to prominence. The film is  also directed by Eastwood.

On the character played by  Anne Archer in Lifeguard Archer  says, "There are thousands of  women faced with the same problems that are confronted by my  character Cathy. She's a divorcee  who must function alone and in  business and remain a woman.  In that post-marriage phase she's  had disappointments in many  relationships, but she has a  career which she values highly.  She keeps going not desperately  seeking another attachment,  but looking for a man to fill a  certain void in her life.

When he's  not busy with the rise and fall  of Mehitabel, he finds time to  produce poems on a wide range  of subjects. He interviews the  Egyptian sarcophagus at the  museum, who, it turns out, would  like nothing so much as a nice  cool glass of beer. Unfortunately,  <s^&��>-  A man in an elevator tries to  step on him, and even his old  friend Mehitabel occasionally  thinks of eating him. Archy  must watch his every step: "i  with the brain of a milton/ fell  into the mincemeat at Christmas/ and was damn near baked  in a pie." But life at the bottom  is not without ceremony. When  Archy's friend Freddie the rat  falls in a battle to a tarantula,  they drop him "...off the fire  escape into the alley with/ military honors."  This is a wonderfully imaginative set of stories, and the drawings that accompany the text are  delightful.

Harmony Hall Happenings  by Jim Holt  The Valentine Dinner is over  and it was a smashing success,  ' thanks to Mrs. Sluis, convenor,  and  her staff of ladies  of the  Ladies   Auxiliary   of  the   Royal  Canadian  Legion  Branch  #109.  ; These ladies are experts in the  ; culinary art.   The meal was just  ; a masterpiece and I am sure if  ; these certain ladies could have  heard the compliments about the  dinner   they   would   feel   really  proud.     There were   about   170  . senior citizens  sitting  down   to  this   wonderful   dinner  with   all  the   trimmings  and   they   truly  enjoyed it.   I know for my part I  won't want to  eat   until   about  Wednesday and I believe there  are many more who feel the same  . way.    It was a dinner that will  . be long remembered by all of us.  !      My  grateful   thanks  to   Mrs.  7 Millward and her students,  we  have a lot of young talent here in  ,s Gibsons and, from what I have  ; seen   of  Mrs.   Millward's  work  ��� with these youngsters, she is a  wonderful   teacher.       She    has  drilled into these youngsters the  confidence they need to rise to  the success they so deserve and  I know that someday, somewhere,  their   talents   are   going   to   be  recognized.  I would personally like to thank  Reg Dickson for his singing and  guitar playing. It was thoroughly  enjoyed by everyone at the dinner  7 and I can see where Johnny Cash  'and   a   few   more   entertainers  ' will   have  to  hang on  to  their  laurels as they have some real  ; competition coming up.  Keep up  the good work Reg and let's show  ~ the world that although we are a  very  small  dot on this  planet,  we are still going to be  heard  "from.  I   would   like   to   extend   my  thanks to Louise Hume and all  those who supplied transportation  :to and from the hall.  You should  get a job in Vancouver with the  B. C. Hydro,  Louise,  directing  Bus Traffic.   I don't know where  you get the time and energy to  do all the jobs you are  doing,  -but I know you are a very dedicated   and   community   minded  -person and we certainly owe you  ! a debt of gratitude for what you  ': are doing and may you keep your  'health and strength to carry on  your wonderful work.  We had the pleasure of celebrating two Valentine Birthdays  in the persons of Molly Connor  and Ed Wickstrand. Unfortunately Ed couldn't dance, but we  cleared the floor so that Molly  and husband Ed could strut their  stuff a couple of times around  the   floor.      Congratulations   to  Molly and Ed and may you have  many, many more Happy Birthdays. It was also brought to my  attention we had a birthday anniversary on the same evening  as the dinner in the person of  Einar Jorgenson. It was not given  to me until after I had made the  announcement of Molly and Ed,  but here is a belated Happy  Birthday wish to you Einar and  may you have many more. If  I am still around next year I  will remember your birthday and  make a real special announcement.  With   this   beautiful   weather  still hanging around I believe we  should have some kind of entertainment going in our hall.    So  let's kick this thing  around as  we have got the hall and let us  get the use of it. I intend to bring  it up at the carpet bowling on  Wednesday.     Also  the  branch  bingo on February 21st and also  at the General Meeting in March  so    come   prepared   with    your  answers and let us make use of  our hall as it is no good sitting  empty.    By what I saw at the  Valentine Dinner,'perhaps more  dances   would  be  the   answer.  We have all kinds of music to  suit your moods. The price would  be very reasonable and it would  give us a chance to get to know  each other better.   So let's kick  this around and get things going.  There were a few faces missing  at our  Carpet  Bowling   session  this week most of it due to the  bug that is going around.    Eve  and John Holloway, Eva and Dick  Oliver,    Louise   Barnes,   Julius  Sorenson, Helen Strange and a  few others came down with it.  I understand that most are  on  the way to a full recovery and we  hope to see them all out next  week.  We are all set for another  bingo session on Thursday night.  Whilst we are not making a  fortune on it, we are managing to  keep our heads above water and  that is the main thing. We are out  to see that people enjoy themselves and have a- good time  socializing.  The date has been set for the  trip to Reno. It is April 2nd.  For futher information regarding  this trip call Vi Lynds at 886-7428.  I understand the round trip fare t  is $125.00, insurance included.  Continental Travel in the Mall at  Sechelt are in charge of the trip  and I am sure that Ben will give  you any information you desire.  Here's hoping we can get a bus  load as the fares will be going up  as time goes on and now is the  time to go.  Well, we had another very  successful Bingo night. Harmony  Hall is getting to be quite a  popular place these days, and we  certainly appreciate all you good  people coming and helping us  out. Thanks to Ernie Fossett and  Ed Connor for calling the games  for us, also to Fred Mason for  working on the floor calling back.  It was a delight to see some of  our Indian friends winning last  night. I don't know your names  yet but congratulations to all of  you and we hope to see you  coming back.  The Navy League of Canada,  Gibsons Division, are going to  use the hall for five consecutive  Monday evenings for First Aid  Classes. These events will be  starting next Monday, February  21st.  Keep your eyes peeled and  your arms and back limbered up  as one of these days in the near  future and with the co-operation  of the weather man, we are going  to have a cleaning up bee to clear  up the grounds around the hall  and get it respectable looking.  So in a future issue maybe tiie  next one, I will be setting a date  for the clean up so all you have to  do is bring along a shovel and  rake, and a strong back. Transportation will be provided for  those needing it, that is as long  as you don't live on the other side  of Sechelt.  Don't forget the Carpet Bowling next Wednesday, 23rd and  the Bingo Game on Thursday,  February 24th. Also our next  General Meeting will be held on  Monday, March 7th. Please keep  these dates in mind as they are  important.  Wally Green has installed the  dart board complete with darts  and overhead light. This as I  stated previously was donated by  Wally and his wife Louise, and to  them we extend our grateful  thanks, so come along all you  dart players and enjoy yourselves, maybe it will remind you  of some of the good times you  had in the Pubs in England  during World War I or II.  I guess I will sign off for this  time, as I think I have run out of  news.  Happy Horizons  St. Valentine's Day at the  Elphinstone New Horizons opened with square dancing, and other  activities that test the brain and  brawn.. Next week, good luck  will replace skill at the opening  game of Bingo.  Another addition has been  made to .our stock room shelves  in the form of a Community Song  Book. Good song sheets seem  hard to find these days so we  took the bull by the horns and  compiled a booklet of our own  containing about 40 of the old  favourites. This means that  when the members are in a singing mood, and a song leader  is available, we will have all  that is needed to bring down the  roof, and the walls with it.  We were privileged to have  Mr. Walter James sing four  songs. "Love Sends a Little  Gift of Roses" to honor St. Valentine. The others were in response  to three requests - "Danny Boy",  "When I Grow too old to Dream"  and "Amazing Grace". His  commentaries preceeding each  song were interesting, and added  much to the understanding of  the selections. Thank you, Mr.  James for giving your time and  sharing your musical talents with  us.  We regret that Mrs. Bessie  Clark was in hospital and so  missed hearing her request number. We wish her a speedy recovery. However, in the reverse  direction we welcome back Mrs.  Margaret Crawford who is now  feeling better than ever following  her recent bout in hospital.  An odd situation arose when  the monthly birthday cake was  presented, and not one candidate  appeared to do the honors. The  quandary was solved when it  was duly moved, and approved  that the cake be put in cold  storage until next month when a  few March hares may turn out  to claim the cake. It was tough to  see that cake carried away from  tinder our noses, we all lost out -  but so did St. Valentine too! The  moral of this story is not to count  your slice of cake until the cake  is cut.  Finally, a quantity of plastic  containers appeared on the scene  for anyone who wishes to have  them. Gardeners may find them  useful and they are handy around  the home, in the tool shed and  other places. They're free for  the asking, while they last.

Volunteers  The community services sponsored by the Sunshine Coast  Human Resources are in need of  volunteers to help in bringing  the services to the people. Committees of the Community Resource Society are involved in  bringing to the region services  such as the Sunshine School  where volunteers act as Probation  Sponsors to help troubled juveniles. If you are a performer the  Sunshine School, the Group  Home and the Arts and Crafts  portions of the Resource Society  would enjoy to share your talents.  Experienced volunteer librarians  are sought for the library. Adult  assistance is required by the  Guides, Brownies, Cubs and  Scouts ofthe region.  Other activities which would  benefit by additional volunteers  include the Jack and Jill Play  School or the Wilson Creek Day  Care Centre. In the area of  Senior Citizens Services additional drivers are always needed for  the special appointments or needs  of the elderly. In the Roberts  Creek area volunteers are required for Red Cross knitting  and crocheting, with wool supplied. Also in Roberts Creek the  Women's Centre always needs  volunteer held for the work they  do.  The Sunshine Coast Community Resource Society urges interested regional residents to  enrich their lives by participation  in one of these valuable areas.

Telephone: 685-7235  "toil didn't receive  an Insurance  7  It was Wrong?  Here's what to do about it.  Some motorists did not automatically receive their 1977/78 Autoplan Insurance and Motor Vehicle  Licence Renewal Form in the mail.  There are many reasons why we  were unable to issue a number  of these forms. ,  INCORRECT INFORMATION  FILED LAST YEAR  If there was something wrong on  last year's insurance certificate,  because of something ICBC did,  the agent did or perhaps you did,  we could not issue your 1977/78  Renewal Form automatically. We'll  get it corrected when you fill out  this year's Renewal Form at your  Autoplan agent or Motor Vehicle  Branch office. Be sure to take  your 1976/77 Certificate of Insurance with you when you go to  renew your insurance.  OR PERHAPS SOMETHING  HAS CHANGED  Maybe, during the 1976/77 year,  you got married. Had a birthday.  Changed your coverage. Bought  a new car. Changed your rate  class. Or changed your address  and didn't remember to tell us.  Any of these things could be the  reason why you didn't, automatically, receive the 1977/78  Renewal Form.  OR PERHAPS YOU  RECEIVED A RENEWAL FORM  WHICH YOU DON'T THINK  IS RIGHT  We've been talking a lot about the  17.5% discount off your 1977/78  Autoplan Insurance. Some motorists were disappointed when they  received their Renewal Forms to  find that the discount had not  been shown.  Even though it is not shown on  your form, you may be entitled  to it.  If you did not have a blameworthy  accident in the period October 1 st,  1975 to September 30th, 1976,  you definitely qualify for the discount. But if you were in an accident and the claim has not yet  been settled, your Renewal Form  would not show the discount.  And, as we processed about  375,000 claims in 1976 there are  quite a few still outstanding.  If you think anything else is wrong  discuss it with your agent.  HIT-AND-RUN  Then there are "Hit-and-runs". If  you were the victim of a hit-and-  run driver, and collected on your  Autoplan Insurance, even though  you were not responsible, the only  way we could record the accident  is as a collision. This means that  your  Renewal  Form  would  not  show the 17.5% discount but you  are still entitled to it.  HERE'S WHAT TO DO  If you have received a Renewal  Form and disagree with any information on it, discuss the problem with any Autoplan agent or  Motor Vehicle Branch office.  If the 17.5% Safe Driving discount  isn't shown, all you need do to obtain the discount is to visit your  Autoplan agent or Motor Vehicle  Branch office, and complete your  Renewal Form. You will be given  the discount when you sign the  form affirming your eligibility.  Of course, your record will be  checked out later, but meanwhile  the discount will be applied.  If you have not received your  Renewal Form, take your current  1976/77 Certificate of Insurance  to any Autoplan agent or Motor  Vehicle Branch office.  In most cases Autoplan premiums are lower in B.C. than in other  provinces. Here's an example for your specific region.  Public Liability and Property Damage $200,000 inclusive limits.

Surrey did not score often on Saturday night at the arena  but this is one of their three goals enroute to an 11-3  loss to Roberts Creek.  Strikes and spares  ��  We wound up the house round  for the Thomas Adams Tournament last weekend and with an  entry of 165 bowlers we can enter  6 teams in the Zone Round.' The  bowlers that won the tournament  are: Ladies Team 1: Elaine  Middleton, Iris Harrison, Alice  Smith, Vivian Chamberlin, Carole  ��� : Skytte.

The winning teams in the Zone  final will then go to Vancouver  in the final round, in which 50  teams from all over B. C. will  bowl with the eventual winning  teams going to Edmonton to go  against the rest of Canada. It's  a good tournament as it takes in  all average classifications and can  involve all bowlers.  In league action Ken Skytte  just missed a 400 game in the Ball  & Chain League with a nice 399  single. (The score for 400 games  is till Ladies 2, Men 0. Come on  men!)

DISCOUNT FOR SAFE DRIVERS  K. BUTLER  REALTY LTD.  1538 Gower Point Road - Phone 886-2000  Soecer  by BarnlbuB and Company  The Elphinstone Wanderers  soccer club scored their second  consecutive shut-out of the season this Sunday when they defeated Aga Khan 2-0.  The game was played on a  muddy False Creek field with rain  pelting down much of the second  half.  Again, teamwork was the Wanderers strong point as the defence continually thwarted the  Aga Khan's quick short passing  game. The Aga Khan goalie  was much pressed and made  many good saves as the Elphinstone forwards kept driving the  ball on target.  Ken Verhulst played well as  he marked up his second shutout of the season. On defence,  Don McKay and Ken Bland  played steadily along with halves  Kerry Eldred, Bjorn Bjornson  and Danny Weinhandl. Weinhandl, who has just returned  from a Mexican vacation, played  well enough to make his teammates feel there just might be  something they've missed down  Mexico way.  The next two weeks the Wanderers will be hosting Latinos  and Trojans. Fans are encouraged to support the home team at  2:00 p.m., Sunday, March 6th  at the Langdale field. Trojans  are currently on top of the divi-  son and Wanderers are out. to  put them in their proper place.

DOGWOOD   TAKEOUT  BY TERRY KARKABE  Saturday - need to write my  blurb today, and it's a fine day  for the occasion; bright, clear,  warm but not hot and generally  one of the finer February days in  this young man's memory.  We're seeing people today we  .haven't seen for  a  long  time,  .drifting in and out of the cafe  just as if it were  mid-summer  minus tourists - nice.  It's been almost three years  now since I ceased being a tourist, decided. that Gibsons was  home, and began the lenghty  process of settling in, meeting  old-time residents and looking for  some of the histroy which lies  behind this place called home.  It's a daily lesson. It has to be  since I have many years of  living and learning to catch up on,  and I believe you can't be a part  of anything until you know it  very well.  In much the same way as my  parents strove to become Canadians - speaking English without  their native accent, studying  history and fitting in generally  so as to be comfortable in their  new home - I feel compelled  to study the Sunshine Coast and  so take some of the edge off  the vulnerability of being a  stranger in a strange land.  With summer on its way - and  it looks to be arriving early and  staying late - we will, no doubt,  be awarded our fair share of  summer visitors. The ferry rates  have lost their initial painful  impact, fair weather will, bring  the boaters out in droves and  many of us will have to put our  best foot forward in an effort to  provide essential .services for  those lost souls during their  visit to paradise. It looks to be a  busy, successful, and financially  rewarding year for Gibsons with  the key word being "hustle".  And yet, the main reason I  like it here so much is that one  gets a distinct feeling of Gibsons  as a "village" - a place where  people know each other and have  an overall relaxed attitude towards life, with everyone stretched out on this particular piece  of river bank wearing a straw  hat to keep off the heat and holding a fishin' pole to justify the  sprawling laziness of the noon  day sun. It would be a shame, no  not a shame, a sin to let that  feeling die at the hands of un-  guided progress and so its up to  all of us (even the relative newcomers) to retain that spirit of  trust and amiability which makes  Gibsons a wonderful place to  live and work.  As for me, I look forward to  a full magnum of riverbanking  in secluded places this coming  season of sun. It shows every  sign of being a vintage year.  Come cry with me  Do yon have ��� problem that  yon can't solve? Write Ann  Napier, C/O Coast News, Box  460, Gibsons.  Dear Ann Napier:  In just a few years the thrill of  being together seems to have  gone from our relationship. Is  it gone forever?  Mrs.Z  Dear Mrs. Z.  Maybe not gone, just hiding.  The familiar loses it's zing at  times, so if you've thrown flowers  in the bath, worn a G string and  tried other disguises short of a  mustache,   try   other   surroun  dings. The hall, the guest room,  for the very bored tired partners,  a touch of danger might do it.  Make love in the moonlight, or  on a sunny warm day in the back  garden. The fear of being  interupted might turn you both  into lovers again. Try candlelight, and just before the plane  lands...  Dear Ann Napier:  Do women like to look at men  partially dressed as well as men  like to girl watch?  Mr. Shy  Dear Mr. Shy:  Faint heart never won fair  lady, some that weren't fair  probably.

Going through the Change of Light?  by Ed Lend  Just in case anyone out there  gives a damn, there's a secondhand store about to open in  Sechelt. All it needs are a few  more shelves and a little sprucing  up and away she goes! Oh yeah,  it could use a few more articles  to place on those new shelves.  Right about now would be a good  time to let y'all know this here  second hand store operates under  the same roof as Peninsula Recycling. Needless to say it's poor  as hell. That's right, folks, we  need a few give-aways, throw-  aways, lay-aways, consignments,  refinements. Don't take it to  the dump because it'll probably  get buried or burned. You're  cleaning out the attic or garage-  Wonderful! Give us a call and  we'll haul it and recycle it.  Recycling has become a way  of life for some people right here  on the Sunshine Coast. In fact  many of our older citizens have  been recycling long before it  became fashionable to reuse,  repair, restore, trade or retread-  recycle. Compost piles! You'll  have the best soil on your block.  Recycling, it seems has entered  into rather unlikely situations  such as romance, when he/she  decides to recycle his/her partner. Have your heard the latest  medical discovery? Recycled  organs.     Yes,  folks,  if you've  FISHERY CLOSURE  Fishery services has extended the closure to fishing for  Ling Cod by means of spear fishing only.  Until 12:00 Midnight, March 31,1977.  Hook and line fishing will open March 1st, 1977 in accordance with B. C. Fishery regulations. This action is  justified due to the vulnerability of the Ling Cod in the  shallower waters guarding their eggs.  The area closed to spear fishing includes Howe Sound  and the entire Gulf of Georgia area from Beechy Head  near Victoria to Shelter Point near Comox.  Your Flag.  Your Future.  HERITAGE DM  This land means many things to many  people. Our common bond is represented  by the flag. Wherever it flies, we can be  proud.  Today, Canada is one of the greatest  countries in the world. The future looks  even better. Let's celebrate.  Monday, February 21st, has been set  aside as Heritage Day. Kinsmen Clubs  across Canada invite you to make the  most of it.  FEBRUARY 21st 1977  Fly the flag. Take part in the activities  planned by Kinsmen in your community to  commemorate our way of life.  Think about what we are as a nation,  where we came from and where we're  going. Think about your part in all of this.  As the only major service organization  that is totally Canadian in membership and  purpose, The Association of Kinsmen  Clubs is proud to initiate and organize  Heritage Day events.

Organs are used in  transplant operations which is  a form of recycling, not exactly  household, mind you.  Recycling offers us something  which we might not all be aware  of. Maybe that's because it isn't  a big thing. You see everytime  you flatten your tins or whatever you're helping others as  well as yourself. It's one of the  few things left in this world  which could really affect one  another. Perhaps we can't see  it today, here on the Sunshine  Coast. But it's communities  like the Coast which can show a  positive direction for others to  accept and endorse and practice.  So do drop by and have a look  around.
