Water disharmony at Harmony Hall  Mayor Larry Labonte fields questions from concerned residents of Gibsons at the recent  public meeting held to discuss the implementation of the Dayton and Knight recommendations that the village of Gibsons should tie-in with the Regional Water System.  Gibsons refusal explained  As requested at the recent meeting of the Regional Board,  Alderman Jim Metzler presented three questions to the Gibsons council on Tuesday, July 19th on behalf of the Regional  Board. The questions were first posed by Director Barry  Pearson representing Area "C" of the Regional District and  came about during the debiate on what form support of the  operating expenses of Gibsons pool should take.  The questions asked specifically why Gibsons had not joined  the Regional Recreation function; why Gibsons had not joined  the Joint Community Use of.Schools.function; and7is Gibsons  pfeparSd^  so that monies to aid the operation of the Gibsons swimming  pool could be part of the region-wide recreation referendum.  Third  The discussion of the proposed  questions was brief and ended  with the unanimous negative  position on all three questions.  Alderman Goddard, responsible  for recreation in the Village of  Gibsons, pointed out that technically council should not be discussing the recreation question  since it was less than six months  since it had been discussed.  the referendum, was unlikely to  be successful and for these reasons had elected to stay out of  the Joint Recreation function.  Second  First  The first question, as to why  Gibsons had stayed out of the  Joint Recreation function, elicited the answer that under the  Municipal Act only one-tenth of  one mill could be raised by the  regional district for recreation,  which would realize $6,000.  Gibsons council felt that $6,000  would be wasted spread over the  entire regional district and that  the regional board's alternative  source of recreational revenue,  On the second question as to  why Gibsons council had refused  to levy a 1-mill increase on their  tax rate in order to join the Joint  Community Schools function,  Mayor Labonte pointed out that  at the time the Joint Schools  function was raised the Village of  Gibsons had just committed itself to the expenditure of *100,000  in order to get a $300,000 Neighbourhood Improvement Program  Grant. It was felt, therefore,  that the taxpayers, of Gibsons  could not be asked to contribute  another mill for the Joint Schools  function. "The one mill levy  was simply too much," said  Mayor Labonte.  The third question as to  whether Gibsons council was now  ready to join the Parks and Recreation function in order to ensure  support monies towards the  operating deficit of the Gibsons  swimming jjppl, _t^e, .y Ulage^coun^.:  _ciUj^  rejection of the-invitation. They  felt that the referendum being  proposed by the regional board,  despite the work of Norm Watson  of the Recreation Commission,  was doomed to defeat. In which  case Gibsons would be no further  ahead and also committed to  membership in the Joint Recreation function which they had  already rejected. .Mayor Labonte  requested Village-Clerk Copland  to write the regional district  emphasizing that "We will, not  join the Parks and Recreation  function."

Ms. Owen's impassioned speech and her sign left no doubt about what her  views were.  A stormy public meeting in Harmony Hall on Thursday,  July 21st, saw spirited discussion of the proposed Gibsons  tie-in with the Regional Water System. The meeting developed  primarily into a three-way debate between Gibsons Water  Commissioner, Alderman Stuart Metcalfe, Regional Board  Director for Area "F" Bernie Mulligan who has the responsibility ofthe Regional Water on the Regional Board, and long-  term resident of Gibsons, Jack Marshall, who was the chief  spokesman for the group that was violently opposed to the tie-  in. Also vocal in opposition was a group of ratepayers from  Granthams who have been expressing their opposition in letters  to the newspapers recently.      f  The meeting was sponsored by O.A.P. Branch #38 of Gibsons  and the members of the, Gibsons council present, including  Mayor Larry Labonte and Alderman Metcalfe, Goddard and  Hume, were present at the invitation of the Senior Citizens.  It was chaired by O.A.P. member Vic Eckstein who in his  initial remarks observed that a public utility valued at close to  one million dollars was going to be sold by the Village council  for $1.00 without discussioh^wjth the ratepayers. He asked  members of the council present to explain.  :77fire: protection for the upper  7 .?village where the high school,  : .the shopping centre, the theatre,  (land curling club are located.

"It's the right move 7  to make," asserted Labonte.  He invited those opposed to the 7  tie-in to acquaint themselves .;  with the Dayton and Knight report. "If the regional board  isn't giving us a good deal, you  let me know," said the Mayor.

"I will go along with  the majority," said the village  water commissioner, "though I  do not feel qualified to decide.  I think a thorough investigation  should be made. The water system belongs to the people and  will still belong to the people  whatever happens."  Metcalfe pointed out that the  regional board has access to  money we the Village of Gibsons  would never see and had the  added advantage of a system  which could be gravity-fed for the  whole district. He pointed out  that the regional board had given  the undertaking that the water  rates would rise no more than  $8.00 over the next five years  and that a tie-in with the gravity-  fed system would mean increased  :;;   A  group  of  ratepayers,   apparently   from   Granthams,   expressed strong skepticism concerning   the   regional   board's  undertaking to limit any increase  in water rates to $8.00 over five  'Zyeats.' ���.;.,.    ���  ���' ^Regional   board   director   in  ^fWge.<of^regional^Ater;- Bernie  ' MuHtgan, urged Alderman Metcalfe to tell the people what the  costs Were. "Our system is more  economic," said Mulligan:  Fire Chief BUI Phillips added  his plea for the tie-in with the  regional water system. "It's  four years since the high school  burned down," said Phillips,  "and there's still no water up  there. We have to try to main-  ain fire standards without water  in many parts of this fire protection district. Some places we  cannot maintain a hand line.  We've got pipes that come out  air and rock."  Long-time Gibsons resident  Jack Marshall was most vocal  in his opposition to the regional  tie-in. "We can do it on our  own," said Marshall. "If we go  into this thing we will be willingly  raped."  "I don't rape easy," said  Mayor Labonte.  Aldermen Hume and Goddard  also spoke strongly at the public  meeting in favour with the tie-in  with the regional water system.  Mr. J. Copland,  Clerk Treasurer  Village of Gibsons,  Box 340,  Gibsons, B.C.  VON 1VO  Dear Mr. Copland:  We have now completed a  review of the Gibsons waterworks system, and submit herewith a report outlining our  findings.  The review included investigations into water use and demand, sources of water and the  existing system potential for providing predicted future demands.  Long range plans for upgrading  and increasing capacities have  been designed and their costs  estimated.  In summary, the Gibsons distribution system will require considerable capital expenditures  over the next twenty years if  the area continues to grow in  population. In addition present  proven . supply sources will require supplementing in four or  five years.  R. Gordon Knight, P. Eng.  Introduction  ' The first waterworks plan for  Gibsons was prepared in 1965 and  recommended as Stage One the  provision of Well No. 1 as well  as the School Road Booster  Pumps, the 1,000,000 gallon cell  at Reed and Henry Roads plus  various miscellaneous improvements. The report also pointed  out that for the long term future  to develop its future system to  the maximum benefit of its users.  This survey and report was  commissioned in February 1977  to review and update long range  waterworks planning for the  Village.  Conclusions and Recommendations:  It has been concluded in the  waterworks review that:  1. The Village sources (including  Well No. 2) are adequate for  normal demands during the next  4 to 5 years, but are inadequate  for drought conditions (which are  not documented).  2. One of the Village sources,  the springs at Reed and Henry  Roads is unacceptable in quality  without chlorination.  3. It is relatively expensive  to pump and maintain and operate chlorination facilities for  Gibsons, such costs not qualifying  for Senior Government Assistance and increasing with inflation each year.  4. To expand and improve the  Village works would cost:  Plan No. 1. (all work on Village  internal system for projected 20  year period as Stage I) $1,409,000  Capital Cost.  Net new cost to users: $80,000  per year.  Plan No. 2 (leave out new reservoir cell on School Road and  lining and covering of Reed and  Henry Reservoir) $760,000 Capital Cost.  Net new cost to users $70,000  per year.  Han No. 3 (only do 3rd Zone  reservoir and connector and third  well ��� leave out everything else  Gibsons^wouldJbaY6sio jmport/.for-Stage-One).$349,000;Capital  water from Chapman Creek to   Cost.  provide for its users. Stage One  was implemented soon thereafter.  Subsequently the Sunshine  Coast Regional District developed  a waterworks system utilizing  Chapman Creek as the principal  source, bringing water eastward  almost to the Village boundary.  To date the two systems are not  interconnected .(except through  a shut emergency valve) and  paralleling of facilities has been  started with two reservoirs at the  same elevation serving the same  zone. Gibsons, accordingly, is  now faced with a decision on how  Net new cost to users $60,000  per year.  To these plans should be added  the cost of new or supplementary  sources other than Well No. 1.  5. A heavy impact in the net  cost structure is the cost of pumping and chlorinating water for  which there is no_ senior government grants. These charges comprise $26,250 for Plans 1 and 2  and $30,000 for Plan 3.  6. The Village of Gibsons will  be short of water in the forseeable  future, long range plans should  incorporate either import of water  from outside the immediate Peni-  nsula or further development ol  supplementary sources.  - And it is recommended thai  the Village of Gibsons approve  this report in principle and pro  ceed with its implementation ir  stages.  Other Local Creeks  The*potential yield of watei  from other local creeks has been  explored in past investigations  of water supply. In summary,  it is necessary to go a long way  from Gibsons before a source  of good potential can be found.  Additional Wells  It is probable that more ground  water wells such as No. 1 and No.  2 could be drilled and brought  into production for the supply  of water to Gibsons in a normal  year of usage. Again, however,  under conditions of drought,  the quantity and quality of water  from all such wells is unknown  and is liable to deteriorate.  Regional District System  The Sunshine Coast Regional  District has a water supply system near Gibsons boundary which  is connected to the Village system  through one closed valve.  The main source forHhe regional  system is.Chapmah Creek which,  when   fully   developed,   has   a  capability  of supplying  200,000  people.       The    1968   Regional  Waterworks    Survey   concluded  that it was the only long term  source of water for the Sunshine  Coast.   In addition, the Regional  District has wells for supply to  the. areas around Gibsons. These  wells, under conditions of drou  ght, would probably suffer the  same deterioration as the wells in  Qibsons^^As long as .Chapman  Creek is available for emergen  cies, however, the wells provide  an excellent source for summer  peaking in normal years.   Today  the Langdale well is pumped less  than 2 hours  in each  24  hour  cycle.    To bring large amounts  of Chapman Creek water towards  Gibsons  would  require  an   upgrading in the Regional system.  Such   upgrading,    however,    ib  relatively simple to  provide  in  stages.  In the long term view, it is  concluded that only the Regional  District system should be relied  upon to supply Gibsons with  adequate water.   Shopping bus for Gibsons  Through the joint efforts of  local merchants working through  the Gibsons and District Chamber  of Commerce, a shopping bus  service will be instituted in the  near future. The initial Thursday  schedule calls for the bus to leave  the mall area in Upper Gibsons  at 9:30 a.m. travelling down  North Road to Langdale thence  to the downtown area of the village and back to the mall. At  11:00 a.m. approximately the bus  will proceed from the mall along  Pratt Road to Gower Point Road  and along Gower Point Road as  far as the trailer court. It will  return via Chaster Road to Pratt  Road, back to Gower Point Road  thence to the Lower Village and  finally to the mall. The return  routes will be reversed and start  at approximately 1:30 p.m.  The Friday schedule sees the  bus travelling west along.Highway 101 as far as Flume Road  thence to the far end of Beach  Avenue. It will return along  Lower Road in Roberts Creek to  the mall, thence to the Lower  Village and back to the mall.  "There is a dire need for such  a bus service," said a spokesman  for the Chamber of Commerce.  If the service proves successful  it is hoped to be able to expand  the service to a broader base in  the near future. The service will  be provided by means of a fifty-  five seat school bus. It will be  similar to a service which has  been operating in the Sechelt  area for some years now.  Full details of the service  will appear in the Coast News  next week. It is also hoped that  it will be possible to provide a  shuttle service between the mall  and the Lower Village between  the hours of 11:30 a.m. and 1:00  p.m.  Kiwanis Way  The mainstreet in Sechelt is home for these baby swallows, seen here being fed.  is located just in front of the Pentangle Plant Shop on Cowrie Street.

About that water report  The Dayton and Knight report on the  Gibsons Village Water Supply systems  seems quite clear and straight forward.  It points out that a study made in 1965  recommended that the future of water  supply for Gibsons lay in importing water  from Chapman Creek. The proposed  tie-in with the Regional Board water  system is designed to achieve specifically  that aim, as well as to upgrade water  systems, among other'places, in Gran-  tams area of the Sunshine Coast.  Among the advantages to the tie-in  are some significant long-term economic  factors. The Chapman Creek tie-in  would provide a water system which  was gravity-fed. Maintenance and  operation, once the system was established, would not be expensive. There  are considerable senior government  grants for the capital costs involved in  the implementation of such a system.  The alternatives to the tie-in with  regional water seem to lie in the development of wells for the use of the  Village of Gibsons. The draw-backs  seem to lie in the fact that such wells  would need costly chlorination from time  to time and also the water from said  wells would have to be pumped to many  ofthe users. There are no senior government grants for chlorination or pumping.  The report is quite unequivocal in  its recommendations that the tie-in  should take place. The Regional Board  has given users and village council its  assurance that $8.00 will be the maximum increase in water rates over the  next five years. A spokesman for the:  Sechelt Council is on record as saying  that the village council there has been  well pleased with the water service  since they joined the Regional system.  Regretfully, much of the opposition to  the tie-in that was voiced at Harmony  Hall last Thursday night seemed immune  to reason. There was the distinct impression that people had not come to be  informed, to weigh the issues, and then  to decide. Many seemed to have come  with completely closed minds, irrational  and fearful. The Regional Board seems  to have become the favourite whipping  boy for everybody these days. People  at the water meeting voiced the opinion  that the water tie-in was a plot on the  part of the Regional District to assist  developers. Developers in the Sechelt  Vicinity Plan Study meanwhile, during  the same week, accuse the Regional  Board of being blindly and foolishly  opposed to development.  Regional Board Director Bernie Mulligan, a life-long resident of Gibsons,  manfully tried to point out the advantages  of the tie-in in terms of long-range  economy and possible emergency situations. No one was listening. The Gibsons  Fire Chief made a plea for the tie-in ^  citing numerous instances of inadequate  water supplies for fire fighting throughout the district which would be alleviated  by the tie-in. To little avail. It didn't  seem to matter to the opponents of the  tie-in that many of their neighbours on  the Sunshine Coast could not be given  adequate protection in the event of fire.  It was a display of the Fm-alright-Jack  philosophy which was unpleasant to  watch.  Jack Marshall had much to say and  seemed quite certain that all of it was  justified. His "We will not be willingly  raped" statement was emotive nonsense  % designed to achieve an emotional response without regard for the facts.  The facts are that twelve years ago it  was recommended that Gibsons long-  term water future lay in the direction of  Chapman Creek, recommended by objective engineering studies.  No one is trying to steal anyone else's  birthright, here. All that is being recommended is a means whereby the means of  supplying water to the residents of the  Sunshine Coast can be improved to the  benefit of all. In its blind and unreasoning attitude to the proposal in the face  of the engineering report, the meeting  on Thursday night went some way to  illustrating why Gibsons has become the  last major bastion of parochialism here  on the Sunshine Coast.  Oh, how the heads nodded knowingly  when it was acknowledged that the  Regional District needed Gibsons, as  though something secretive had been  admitted. Of course the Regional District needs the co-operation of its largest  population centre. la certain key areas in -���  civilized society we are all interdependent. It is equally sure that Gibsons  needs the Regional District.  For the most part the members of  council present behaved in responsible  fashion. Mayor Larry Labonte, Aldermen Hume and Goddard, strove to present the voice of reason as they tried  to explain their decision to tie into the  Regional system. Alderman Metcalfe  seemed much less sure. Perhaps the  alderman should realize there is a difference between listening to the voice  of the public and waffling before every  pressure group. His call for more consideration seemed particularly unnecessary. A firm of consulting engineers  has been well-paid by the village to consider the situation in depth in all its  economic and technical ramifications  since February and have presented  their report.  The report is clear. It is unambiguous.  It says the sensible thing to do is to connect the water systems to avoid costly  and foolish duplication. It agrees with  that report twelve-years ago that Gibsons water future is tied in with Chapman  Creek. It would appear to be no fly-by-  night decision. It is a considered engineering decision first reached twelve  years ago, re-assessed and reconfirmed  this year. It's the sensible course. Let's  get on with it.  . .from the files of Coast News  5 YEARS AGO  There  is  great  controversy   existing  over the location of the new highway.  Sechelt, Klahoose and Sliammon Indian  bands are to receive a housing grant to  help finance the transportation and relocation of 120 housing units from the  Canadian Air Force base in Ladner.  10 YEARS AGO  Gibsons Village Council has decided  not to go along with the water project as  presented by the Bullock Report of the  provincial   government   Water   Rights  branch.  This report favours using Langdale Creek as a water source for a water  system.     Instead  the   council  favours  the    Dayton   report   which   advocates  Chapman Creek as a water source.   *  15 YEARS AGO  A  traffic  light  adorns  the   Forestry  Department building at the corner of  Highway 101 and Porpoise Bay Road.  Its main purpose is to regulate traffic  entering   and   leaving   the   provincial  highway.  The arbutus is the only native broad  leaf evergreen in Canada.  20 YEARS AGO  Fame can be found next door and not  necessarily in dusty tombs, as a grade 9  student proved recently when her class  was asked to write about a famous  Canadian. She interviewed Hubert  Evans of Roberts Creek and found that  he, too, is an outstanding Canadian.  25 YEARS AGO  So you like the Coast News!

Clayton collection and  Elphinstone Pioneer Museum. L. R. Peterson  Musings  John Burnside  It was not what you would  call a successful morning. I woke  up bright and early with bird song  and rooster calls and' a clear day  promising. I had a host of things  to do. My children are with me  for the holidays and once again  I'm doing my totally inept portrayal of the bachelor father. It  was Sunday and a full day and  then some lay ahead of me at the  Coast News office and some provision had to be made for the  feeding and care of my offspring,  so I rose resolutely at 6:00 a.m.  It was a routine enough be-'  ginning. I couldn't find my  glasses. I'm short-sighted to  the point where I daren't shave  without my glasses ��� which can  be a problem,. believe me, in  a steam-filled bathroom. The  glasses are gold wire which I  chose a few years ago in some  sort of thoughtless vanity. They  should, of course, be heavy,  black and hornrimmed so that I  can find them when I wake up.  It wasn't an unusually long  search: a mere silently cursing  fifteen minutes. I can remember  an occasion in Vancouver when  Faustmann, Trower and I spent  forty-five minutes on our knees  locking for the Burnside glasses.  The cursing wasn't silent.  ' As I say, I found them in fifteen minutes. I took a cigarette  from the pack for a moment's  self-congratulatory relief. No  matches. The electric . burner  ignited a slip of paper and a-  nother corner was turned.  Clear morning, but damp. The  friendly wood stove. Well you  know what wood stoves are like 7  however friendly, when you try  to take short cuts with them. And  there was again the problem of  the matches. Again the solution  of the slip of paper. Damn we'd  gone to the movies last night and  the dishes still weren't done.  Good old granola! God save  Granola! What's this. Burnside,  you turkey, there is no milk! Not  even your tolerant children can  be expected to sit down to a bowl  of dry Granola. And the animals!  The dog and cat are looking expectantly in your direction and  of course there's no dog or cat  food. You've just moved into  this place and bought a kettle  but you've left it in the office for  some reason or unreason or other  and while you thoughtfully did  procure tea-bags there isn't any  tea-pot and as previously noted  the dishes haven't been done  since last night's supper and the  saucepans are dirty and my  mother's time-honoured recipe  for stress-bound situations is  impossible. "Let's have a cup  of tea," she would say, but not  possible now. No matches, no  tea, no milk, no dog food. What  to do?  Another slip of paper, another  cigarette, no answers. Now it's  7:00 a.m. and nothing of the  many somethings has been accomplished. Morose time. What  about our contact lenses. Not  a light question properly regarded. If you have been pushing  frames for spectacles up your  nose for better than a quarter  century, contact lenses are a joy.  You have to steam the soft ones  but it's only fifteen minutes and  then the natural uplift will come  and the problems, both domestic  and professional will seem  manageable again. Water in the  steaming mechanism, all the little  intimate niceties of the contact  lense wearer taken care of.  Another cigarette and wait for  the uplift of the frame-free  lenses.  Anticipating the uplift. Stirring  noises from upstairs. The children awake, the world of work  menaces but somehow, as ever,  answers will be found. In the  serenity of the promised uplift  suddenly one notices the beauty  of the morning, the dappling  sun, the little red horse golden  in the morning sun, grazing on  the silver of the morning dew.  Ah, yes it is still a beautiful  world and no doubt the day will  fall into place and all Will be well.  A philosophic calm decends, despite the lack of the tea and the  milk and the pet food and the  clean saucepans. Even a harassed and absent-minded editor  doubling as an inept bachelor  father can. know moments of  serenity and insight approaching  wisdom and mature calm. There  follows the self-indulgent sense  of humorous perspective. Ah  yes, one thinks, it has not been  a successful morning. A quietly  self-forgiving chuckle. One must  learn to love oneself even in the  moments of minimum achievement. "All things must pass!"  Ah, yes.  What's this? The contact  lense steamer bubbles its little  song of cheery liberty imminent,  but on the window sill the contact lense container undefiled  and uncleansed by the steam and  now the water is gone and the  children are sleepily and hungrily  coming downstairs to greet their  father and the day. And wisdom  and mature calm are yet again  mischievous rumours only and  the hard sharp facts of the day  remain the hard, sharp facts of  the day and there's work to be  done and children to be fed and  no uplift in sight and spectacle  frames to be pushed resentfully  up the ever-harried nose. Suddenly it's thumb your nose time  at the hungry dog and cat, the  little red horse is whinnying for  carrots and everybody and everything needs attention, including  the hapless editor.  It's off to the Dogwood Cafe  for a communal breakfast, guiltily, wishing for more domestic  efficiency and paternal capability.  A few hurried words of unnecessary advice to the offspring. They  are veterans now with this  particular father and well know  that improvisation and self-  reliance are part of the baggage  that they must pack in their little  satchel against misfortune daily  in his company and have quietly  and tacitly already planned their  day knowing that he will be full  occupied at the office till some  time Monday morning and all  will be well despite him. And so  it is.  It was not what you would  call a successful morning. I  rose early determined to accomplish and failed entirely with the  early projections, dismally indeed. Yet there was the affectionate and forgiving dog and cat,  the sunny and philosophic children, the little red horse silver  grazing. And yes, the paper did  get done despite ali of that and  more beside. Despair, as I am  fond of saying, is always premature.  Slings & Arrows  George Matthews  I was ear-witness to an interesting conversation in the bunkhouse a few nights ago. The subject of debate was the economics  of logging. Having little knowledge of the subject myself, I  was fascinated, though in no way  able to judge the accuracy of  the statements. One particular  statistic struck me as at least  having the ring of veracity; that  'contrary to historical custom, the  logging industry no longer paid  the highest wages in B. C.  As I have said, I have no way  of telling whether this is true or  not but I was immediately able  to put my finger on the probable  cause of such an alarming fact.  I know nothing of logging but I  have enough experience in other  lines of work to discern immediately that the logging industry has allowed itself to be bypassed by the "linquistic revolution" which has swept North  America in the past two or three  decades. This revolution in the  language of work began with professional people after World War  II when advanced communication  techniques and a general rise in  educational levels put the mystique of the professionals, (doctors,  lawyers, teachers and professional civil servants) dangerously  within the reach of laypersons.  When this, combined with the  arrogant demands of democracy,  threatened to allow anybody with  a few brains and some ambition  into previously esoteric occupations, the professionals defended  the gates of the exclusivity  against the barbaric rabble by  adopting thousands of new words  and phrases of such unabashed  jargon that the ambitious pretenders were immediately put  in their rightfully, lowly places.  Since that time every trade or  occupation, anxious to protect  its economic position by limiting  its membership, has followed  suit.  Not so with loggers. There  seems to be a naive assumption  in the woods that good loggers  are hard to get because the work  is heavy; 7 bone-wearying and  requires such monumental strength and endurance that not many  people can handle it, and the  mere fact that the work is hard  should keep the ranks trimmed,  and therefore the demand for  loggers high.  It is true that the work is hard  and that good workers are hard to  find but the industry has become  so mechanized that a number of  skilled men, supported by a few  bodies can achieve much more  than in the days of the axe,  cross-cut saw and wooden spar.  Skilled men are hard to find but  the "bodies" can come from  almost anywhere; for instance,  middle aged school teachers will  do quite nicely.  In order to enhance their  occupational credibility, and thus  their ability to command higher .  wages, loggers are going to have .;  to adopt the tactics of modern:;  industry and government; in .  short, rewrite their mundane.,  occupational lexicon in more up  to date language.  Modern  language  allows   for  any number of examples of potenr ,-  tial jargon. The way it stands now .  however, the direct and straights....  forward nature ofthe woodsman.,,  does not allow for its develop^;  ment.     Anyone can come into ,  camp and in a few days can in- .  terpret  the   most   technical   of .,  logger dialogue.   The first thing  to remember is that every other  word  or  so  doesn't count  because it is one of two or three  traditional logger adjectives. The  second thing to keep in mind is  that the logger has an annoying  habit of calling a thing by its  common, garden name.   There-  .  fore   you   get   something   that  sounds like this; bleepin'  axe,  bleepin'   tree,   bleepin'   power  saw,   bleepin'   choker,   bleepin'  foreman, bleepin' truck, bleepin'  bunkhouse, and so on.    Put together, a typical logging  communication might sound  something  like this;   "You'd   better  get a bleepin' axe and a bleepin' ; ,  power saw up the bleepin' road  and get that bleepin' tree outta..,  the bleepin' way so the bleepin'.  truck can get that bleepin' load,  down to the bleepin' beach before the bleepin' foreman fires. ,'  your bleepin' behind outta this ....  bleepin'camp."  As you can see, in an era of  ,  sophisticated   technical   jargon,  the language of the logger simply. ,  will not do.   Even the most un- .  initiated novice  can  follow  the  message with the simplicity of. .  a nursery rhyme.  How much more professional . ���  and  exclusive,   and  thus   more   ���  deserving of higher wages, would   ���  logging   be   with   a   few   basic   .  changes?   For example, the axe   ,  could become a "manually operated   heavy   density   vegetation  harvesting tool"; the power saw, . (  a '.'motor, assisted, heavy density,.  vegetation harvesting machine.";   .  the tree, a "potentially harvest-   ���  able economic unit"; the bunkhouse, a  "semi-permanent rest   ���  and   recreation   personnel   module"; foremen,   "mobile, field   ,  supervisory personnel".  As you can see, the addition of   ,  a few basic terms, taken from the  more advanced occupations and  industries    could   well   revolu- ,  tionize the wage scales of B.C.  loggers.    My fear is however,  that these men of the woods will . ,  bow to tradition rather than take  up   my  suggestion,   (which,  by.  the way,  I took great  care  to   .  keep to myself) and they will  ..  carry on  in their old-fashioned  J  way  of calling  a  thing by  its  name and saying what they think  right out loud!

It's that waterless school again  Editor:  I got quite a laugh out of the  letter in last week's paper by  School Board Chairman Celia  Fisher, calling me all sorts of  names for speaking out about the  lack of an adequate water system  for the new high school in Pender  Harbour. I've been called a lot  of things in my time but I have  to admit "contumacious" was  a first. I'm almost afraid to  look it up.  You'll notice that in spite of  the indignant tone and great  length of her letter Mrs. Fisher  does not deny any of the basic  points I made for putting a proper  water system in. She admits her  maintenance supervisor told her  the present system consisting of  a plastic hose tied into a shallow  creek with string "has been a  source of concern for a long  time." She agrees that "Fire  Chief Wiibee is correct in saying  that the propsed swimming pool  would not provide enough water  for a fire fight like the last one."  And in summary she says her  letter does not mean to "detract  from the desirability of a water  reservoir delivering 100 pounds  of head without pumps", which  is the very nub of my argument.  I think the School Board's  position in this letter - and I  take this to be an official statement of the board since it was  dictated by the Secretary and  sighed by the Chairman - could  be summarized like this: the  board recognizes that a permanent water system for the Pender Harbour Secondary School is  a good and needed thing but it's  not quite the top priority at the  moment.  As.I pointed out in the article  with Mr. White this has been the  School Board's position on this  vital issue for upwards of twenty  years. My point is that there will  never be a better time to get off  the pot and do something than  right now while the school is  being rebuilt. At least I'm afraid,  if we the people can't talk the  School Board and the government into taking action now we  never will.  To me it is so obviously ridiculous to spend SI .5 million on a  public building and not bother to  supply it with a reliable source of  water that I thought the School  Board's attitude in the matter  must be unrealistic to say the  least. The board's letter confirmed that impression. What  seemed to bother them most was  not the very distressing issue I  brought up itself so much as the  fact I brought it up in public.  I should have kept it all behind  the closed doors of the proper  authorities, they say.  I wonder if all the people a-  round the peninsula who read  my article and their reply to it  would agree with them there. Is  it such a bad thing that a lot of  people now know something  about the water problem up at  the high school?  They are also quick to deny that  it was public demand for a sprinkler system in the hew school  that caused the board to give its  belated support to the idea. It  was the expert opinion of the fire  chiefs the board listened to, they  claim. Are they trying to tell us  the opinion of the taxpayers who  foots the bill for all these burnt  schools, and for school board  salaries as well, is somehow  irrelevant to their decisions?  I have known of School Boards  that liked to keep their proceedings under cover but I've never  before heard one try to claim the  practice as a right, and to defend  it as such in public!  The fact is people have brought  the silly and dangerous water  situation at the high school to  the School Board's attention  many times over the years. The  local fire department has a sheaf  of letters it sent to the.board  begging for  action  before  the  ; Bulk Imported Cheeses  Fresh European  | Meats & Sausage  and a full line of  I Table Ready Foods  * DELICATESSEN  ��� CAFETERIA  Sunnycrest Centre 1  fire. This process has gone on,  as I say, for twenty years, and all  we hear is this infuriating double-  talk about priorities. The reason  for making the issue public is  simple: the board itself, through  its record of epic procrastination,  has left us no choice.  Chairman Fisher does not impress me for one minute by  talking about how difficult it  would be to find money for a  water system. No government  that puts out a million and a  half dollars for a new school is  going to hold back on a few thousand morelo supply it with something so basic to its operation  and preservation as water. And  I don't see how the board can  tell us how hard it is to get government support when they have  not even tried.  They call me "facile and unrealistic" for suggesting they  could get the money for the system any time they really set  their minds to it, but at the same  time they boast they have been  able to raise $75 thousand for  a swimming pool. Is a swimming  pool a higher priority than a  water system? I understand  Victoria was talked into supporting the pool mainly on the basis  of its fire protection value. The  water system would provide much  more protection at much less  cost. Why not go to Victoria with  the same pitch? Or is the board  afraid Victoria might be angry  they weren't told about the water  system in the first place, before  they were sold on the pool? I  asked this question in my article  but the board did not answer it  in their letter. I ask it again.  I said in the article that the  cost of the water system might  be saved out of insurance premiums, which were likely very  high. The board letter revealed  that ICBC under Social Credit  management has now stopped insuring our schools altogether, and  seems to infer-this lessens the  importance of a water system. I  find this logic absurd. If fire  protection is now the only insurance we have, it is surely  more important than ever. In  the event of fire every stick we  save is a stick to the good.  The board letter argues that  "a fire department backed by a  massive water supply" is third in  the order of fire protection priorities, behind a fire resistant construction and a sprinkler system.  This is by no means a settled  matter, and there are at least two  sound reasons for putting the  water system ahead of sprinklers.  The first of these is that if the  require not only an expensive  reservoir - which we have aleady  been committed to in true cart-  before-the-horse. fashion - they  will also require expensive automatic pumps to lift the water out  of this reservoir.    If the water  system was built first neither of  these    installations    would    be  necessary and the saving would  be more than enough to pay for  the system.    I am aware that  some experts prefer a pump-fed  sprinkler because the gravity type  is   susceptible  to   earthquakes,  but the risk of an earthquake and  fire occurring together  is  sufficiently remote as to make that  argument something of a red herring. An earthquake that breaks  a tough plastic water main would  also very likely crack a fragile  concrete   swimming   pool    and  break sprinkler pipes, not to say  flatten the building itself, so why  worry?  * Please turn to Page 11  sprinklers are built first they will   DRIFTWOOD CRAFTS ltd  ���ft-  ft  ���ft  ���ft  ���ft  Jewelry  Craft Books  Macrame  Hobby Kits  Patterns & Remnants  ���ft Souvenirs  ���ft- Ceramics  ���ft Sewing Notions  ft- Wool & Crocheting  Supplies  (If yon don't see it.

THE HOUSE OF THE PUPPET  MAN  The Park Theatre at 18th and  Cambie in Vancouver, is strictly  a first-run house today, with  plush upholstery, horizon-wide  screen, Sensaround equipment  and prices to match. It has come  to a far-happier pass than most  of the oldtime neighbourhood  theatres that flourished in pre-  television days. Unable to compete with the insidious box, the  bulk of these were phased-out  as movie-houses in the late Fifties. A few were simply demolished; others were converted  to bowling-alleys, tabernacles  and whatever else seemed reasonable. Only a scattering of the  elite, graduated to grander  things and The Park was one of  these. But I recall it well in its  earlier guise. During a certain,  brief phase of boyhood, my  Saturdays revolved around it.  It's sometime early in 1942.  We've run halfway around the  world to avoid the War in Europe  and now the Far East is on fire  too. The Japanese have struck  their fateful match at Pearl  Harbour and set the whole Pacific  alight. But none of this signifies  much at eleven when you can't  hear the bombs or feel the actual  flames. Everything is relative  and I can see only immediacies.  I can see an errand-boy on a  bicycle, whilstling 'Rose O' Day'  as he pedals carefree along the  simpleminded streets. I can see  eager bullies waiting in the  testing-yards of unfamiliar  schools. I can see my brother  Chris, younger and exiled with  me in this estranged time. I  can see our mother in hospital,  wan, weary and walking Death's  edge after the difficult birth of  our half-brother, Martin.    I can  Peter "Trbwer  see the house to which we are  presently consigned - the house of  the puppet-man.  The puppet-man's name is  Borden Marcy, a henpecked  schoolmaster who has undertaken to board us during our  mother's confinement. Our  stepfather has a pulpmill to run  and no time for much else. Mr.  Marcy and his wife have agreed  to take us in. They are devout  Catholics with four small children  and they sorely need the money.  They reek of piety and good  intentions whenever our stepfather or other friends of our  mother, drop around. His wife  is a slab-faced, swollen woman  of infinite hypocrisy. She impresses investigators and, it's  true she doesn't physically abuse  us. Her sadism is of a subtler  nature.  From the very outset, it is made  clear to us that we are not exactly  honoured guests. Perhaps it has  something to do with our alien  faith. Mrs. Marcy is the chief  offender. She rules the roost  with an iron hand and establishes  a double-standard for her own  whey-faced, whiney children and  ourselves, that is rigidly maintained. We are largely confined  to our room when at the house  and she feeds us there mainly  to disguise the fact that we are  fed bread and gravy while the  rest of them are eating meat.  This sort of inequity is pretty  hard on the morale but there  isn't a hell of a lot we can do  about it. We begin to feel like  orphans and it is grimly close to  the truth.

Burdon Macey himself is somewhat kinder to us than his two-  faced shrew of a wife but he is a  weak man and generally defers  to her wishes. He spends most  of his off-hours in Jhe basement, engrossed in the hobby  that is the real love of his life.  Macey is a puppet-maker.  Dozens of them grim grotesquely  from shelves and work-benches,  a small army of papier-mache  dolls, some naked, some nattily-  attired in tiny suits and dresses.  He doesn't seem to put the puppets to any use but seems content merely to create them. He  evidently sells a certain number  but most of them, he seems  loath to part with. Shortly after  we arrive, he takes us down there  and introduces us around. Most  of the dolls have names like Emily  Crumpet and Doctor Twaddle.  Macey is hugely proud of his  puppets. He appears to value  them a good deal more highly  than his own children.  Macey's initial attitude towards  Chris and myself is quite friendly  but soon, perhaps at his wife's  urging, he becomes considerably  more remote. The Macey's children are all of pre-school age and  we have nothing in common with  them. The atmosphere around  the house is strained and restrictive. As a result, we contrive to  spend as little time there as  possible. Our random, off-school  hours are taken up largely with  roaming the streets and exploring  the neighbourhood.  Its an interesting area for kids  in those days. Little Mountain  is still heavily-wooded and there  are plenty of brushy vacant lots  to build forts in and stage mock  wars while the real one rumbles  bloodily on across the oceans.  One day, in the course of beating  our way through such a tract of  wild land, we stumble across a  bloodstained tuxedo. The jacket  is literally stiff with gore and  has what looks like a knife-slash  in the back of it. Whoever was  wearing the garment is either  very under the weather or very  dead. Fearful to delve any deeper  into the bushes lest we should  stumble across a body, we turn  tail and hotfoot it out of there.  From then on, we studiously  avoid that particular stretch of  woods.  Generally, we get along much  One mile from Gibsons  on Hwy 101 across from Trailer Park  * TIRES: SALES & SERVICE  * EARTHMOVERS  TO WHEELBARROWS  * WHEEL ALIGNMENT  * WHEEL BALANCING  * CUSTOM ACCESSORIES  masiei charge  IFGoodrich  SEVEN YEARS OF SATISFIED CUSTOMERS  PORT MELLON TO EGMONT  D  better with the neighbourhood  kids than we do with the Maceys.  Our English accents have diminished to the point where they  attract little comment. I do  somehow manage to incure the  enmity of a boy called Roger  Crosston however. Crosston is  stocky, tough and something of  a local hero, due both to his  fighting abilities and the fact  that he owns a horse. He's also  a bully. One day he starts  pushing a smaller friend of mine  around and I intervene. We have  it out on the grass between the  sidewalk and the pavement with  a gang of other kids egging us on.  Crosston is pretty strong but I'm  a fairly good wrestler. I manage  to get him down and hold him  pinioned until he gives up. After  that, Crosston keeps his distance.  The highlight of our week is  always Saturday afternoon when  we receive our miniscule allowances and line up for the mandatory  matinee at The Park. , We see  films like The 49th Parallel and  All Through The Night. The  second feature is usually something second rate - a Gene Autry  or Roy Rogers western. There is  always a serial and generally  several cartoons. We're no  connisseurs. Its all grist for our  fantasy mills. There in the noisy,  popcorn-smelling dark, we become Cagney, Bogard and whoever else we choose, for a few  magic hours.  Its always a palpable letdown  afterwards to have to return to  the sour, forbidding atmosphere  of the Marcy's house. As the  months drag by, conditions there  become steadily more-unpleasant. Our status as human-  beings seems to plummet, the  minute we enter those unfriendly  doors. Are we condemned to  stay in. this unhappy place forever, the victims of Mrs. Marcy's  blatant discrimination? We begin to despair of ever being  rescued from her clutches.  And then one quite-unbelievable day, Chris and I are standing  aimlessly in the street when we  glance up the block and see our  mother coming. She has recovered her strength at' last and  is ready to take us home with  her. It is one of the happiest  moments of my entire life sand  remains so even in merrfory.r  Her ordeal is over at last and so  is ours. Our things'are thrown  together hurriedly and we leave  the mournful house of the puppet-  man with nothing even faintly  resembling regret.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 21)  Review carefully any sudden  Comedy-Drama -Horror  In its unceasing determination  to bring the Sunshine Coast entertainment variety, the management of the Twilight Theatre has  planned a program for the forthcoming week, including the  August holiday weekend, which  presents us with the ingredients  of comedy, drama, and horror.  The comedy portion of the  entertainment menu is taken  care of by the contemporary  comedy Thieves starring Mario  Thomas and Charles Grodin.  Thieves is written by Herb Gardner who is the author of both  stage and film versions of the  movie as well as being a successful cartoonist. Gardner introduced the cartoon characters  "The Nebbishes" and was also  the author of the smash hit  comedy "A Thousand Clowns".  Mario Thomas starred in the  stage version of the story which  was directed by Charles Grodin  who stars with her in the film.  The film roves through the teeming colourful Lower East Side  of New York, through the posh  elegance of Park Avenue. After  five weeks of exterior shooting  the film company reactivated the  historic Astoria Studios in New  York which were built by Paramount in 1920 and had stood in  disuse since 1940.  The drama portion of the  weekly fare is well taken care of  by the highly successful and controversial film Network. Written  apparendy in anger by a veteran  TV writer Paddy Chayefsky,  the film makes the television  industry the object of a sharply  critical analysis. It is at once  sharp, biting, hilarious, dramatic,  and absolutely outrageous. It  is highly critical not only of the  television industry but of American values as well.  What transpires on the screen,  under Sidney Lumet's direction,  is often unbelievable but never  dull. Neurotics, revolutionists,  and even assissins rate prime  time exposure in the mad world  of United Broadcasting System.  The film offers many memorable  acting jobs from such as Faye  Dunaway, Peter Finch - who won  a posthumous Oscar for his work  in the film - Robert Duvall,  Marlene Warfield and William  Holden. Ned Beatty contributes  an outstanding cameo appearance. Everything about this  film is first-rate and it comes  very highly recommended.  Finally, those who loved to be  horrified late in the night will  find that they are not forgotten.  The double horror features will  start at 11:00 p.m. on the eve of  the holiday Monday and will  feature the blood-freezing horror  of "From Beyond the Grave"  and "Count Yorga".

Those of you whose birthdays  fall around July 30th, Oct. 30th,  Jan. 27th and April 27th, should  handle your affairs with caution  during the next few days.  Babies born towards the end  of this week will be very independent, outspoken, versatile, and  show superior analytical ability.  Good luck to them all.  LIBRA (Sept. 23 ��� Oct. 23)  Social life becomes hectic and  unexpectedly expensive as the  week closes. Speculations and  risks undertaken at this time will  eventually be abandoned suddenly.  SCORPIO (Oct. 24 - Nov. 22)  Prepare for swift domestic reorganization following (once  again) your declaration of independence and demands for  more freedom and extra understanding.  SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21)  Unexpected correspondence,  phone calls and visits will be  temporarily disturbing but those  people close to you offer sound  advice and restore calm. Extra  care needed when driving this  weekend, Sagittarius.  So long, Ernie  Islands   in   the   Stream,   the  movie based on the last of Ernest  Hemingway's books, was on at  the local theatre the other night.  I went to pay my respects.  Hemingway's heroes' always did  have a striking similarity to  Hemingway, and Tom Husdon,  played in the film by George C.  Scott, not only looked like Hemingway, but actually acted out  parts of that writer's last years.  There was no mistaking who was  on the screen.  I read the book a few years ago  and it wasn't a bad book as books  go but neither was it a good book,  and made money, as books that  are neither good nor bad will do  if you are dead and have a good  name.   That was the last thing I  read by Hemingway, but at some  time I've probably  read everything he's written, from the Nick  Adams stories right on through.  Hemingway's razor gave a clean  shave to die face of twentieth  century prose, and he got paid  off, in his lifetime, not only with  the Pulitzer and  Nobel  prizes,  but with immense personal popularity.    He paid himself off in  madness   and   suicide;   electric  shock treatments and a shotgun.  He carried a tough indifference  with him that surfaced in all his  work, and he recognized it always  in the people around him. He  was never far from the throat  when he shaved, as this short  scene from a story, A Clean,  Well-Lighted Mace, will point  out: "...The two waiters inside  the cafe knew that the old man  was a little drunk, and while he  was a good client they knew that  if he became too drunk he would  leave without paying, so they kept  watch on him. 'Last week he  tried to commit suicide,' one  waiter said. 'Why?' 'He was in  despair.'   'What about?*   'Noth-  CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 ��� Jan. 19)  ���: Thihk j twite before purchasing  any expensive item this week.  The urge to splurge cash is  unusually strong.

Hemingway caught it truly  and well, and he didn't waste  breath telling it. His scenes  between lovers can be very  moving, at times, and he can  elicit a fondness for his characters  that is surprising. In his book,  In Our Time, he wrote: "...You  and me, we've made a separate  peace." and it was just this  feeling of intimacy, the feeling  of being included in a very select  group, that drew readers to him,  to bask in the light of his secret  confidence. Still, it was his style  more than anything that made  him what he was. And he was  the champ. At least for awhile.  It's hard, though, and the  world moves on. The words and  ideas that were once fresh soon  become tinny and hollow, and a  view of the world that once made  sense somehow slips away.  Hemingway saw it as a fight,  all the way through. He fought  it in his life, and he fought it  in his books. He took special  care that he would never lose,  and his whole work rests on this.  He was fast on his feet and he  knew how to punch, and when he  wrote about other writers - like  Gertrude Stein, or F. Scott Fitzgerald in A Moveable Feaat, he  knew right where to aim - below  the belt. Hemingway was the  tough guy. He always came out  on top.  In the 1950's there still seemed  to be room for that sort of guy -  the one who elbowed his way  into things, and maybe stepped  on a few toes, but got what he  was after. Lives, and whole  nations can be predicated on  this way of thinking - all of us are  familiar with bullies. Such  people, like the dinosaurs, will  always get their way. Eventually,  > though, they must move aside,  and make room for the quieter  creatures - the. ones who, while  the bullies sfrut arid posture,  are adapting to. a world they've  come to care for.  Hemingway was a hunter, and  shot all kinds of things with a  variety of guns. Although he  began as a boy who cooked the  hard found trout he'd caught, he  eiuWI up as a sportsman, with  trophies on the wall. How would  he have dealt with a world that  was running out of animals?  In another story from Islands In  the Stream, Hemingway is out on  his boat with some cronies when  they spot a whale. His first  thought is that they ought to kill  it. It would make a great story,  and a great trophy.  So perhaps it's just as well  that Hemingway didn't hang  around for the latest developments. How claustrophobic he  would have felt in this shrinking,  deteriorating, spaceship earth,  where we're running out of things  to conquer, and running out of  things to kill for sport.  Looking back at him, his style,  the clean way he put words together will remain an achievement as long as there are people  who read and write. But the way  he approached life - beating it,  and extinguishing it with a trigger, just doesn't work any more.  The earth cries out now for people  to destroy no more than they  absolutely have to. The times  have changed now, and the dinosaurs are running out of food.  Hemingway once wrote that  "A man can be destroyed but  not defeated." Men can be.destroyed and defeated, though, and  it's most likely that when they  look up, for the last time, from  the rubble all around them,  they'll see finally that the enemy  was themselves.  Islands in the Stream was a dull  movie. It had no answers to the  questions we must ask now. I  think Hemingway would have  liked it though.   George C. Scott  died a hero's death at the end.  He went out like a champ. Too  bad things aren't that simple  any more.  \  /  LATE NIGHT    HORROR    SHOW  Sunday, July 31st 11:00 p.m.  From Beyond the Grave  and Count Yorga Both Mature  /  885-9464  &OS*.  /  CARLINE  MUFFLERS  Guaranteed as long as you own your car  (Compare our Prices)  /  /  \ ��� CBC Radio  Coast News, July 26,1977.  by Maryanne West  Special Occasion, Part II on  ��� Sunday, 6:09 p.m. presents  selections from "Without a Parachute", the evocative journal of  young Montreal writer, David  Fennario, read by actor-writer  Gary McKeehan. David Fennario  grew up in the Point, (Pointe St.  Charles) a down-at-heel district  in the shadow of Montreal's  factory smokestacks. Like the  other kids of his generation he  was full of fight against authority,  left school early, worked off and  on when he could get a job. Laid  off from the only good job he'd  had, he decided tc go back to  school. "They almost didn't let  me, even as a mature student  when they saw how bad my marks  were," he recalls.  As one of his first writing projects he edited the diary he'd  been keeping and handed it in.  The college was so impressed it  arranged for 500 copies and McClelland and Stuart published it  in 1972. Quite by accident the  book came to the attention of  Maurice Podbrey, artistic director  of Centaur Theatre, who encouraged David to try writing a  play. David had only seen one  play in his life, but Podbrey was  convinced of the talent, helped  David apply for a Canada Council  Grant which enabled him to study  theatre at Centaur and experiment with dialogue and style.  His first play "On the Job" about  a group of textile workers was  produced by Centaur, then at the  National Arts Centre, before  going on the road. It was also  shown on CBC-TV last season.  Mckeehan has re-arranged the  journal to focus on dramatic  themes, but he hasn't dramatized  the selections. There are some  powerful characters in the book  and David is a great natural  storyteller. The musical score  was composed and performed by  Susan Smith, guitar and Cindy  Mosley, woodwinds.

Official notice was received recently from the league  secretary.  Players interested in joining  the soccer club are invited to  begin practises on Thursday,  July 28th at 7:00 p.m. behind the  high school gym. .  There were fourteen players  out to last Wednesday's 14 and  15 year old juvenile soccer practise. New players are urged to  come out at 7:00 p.m. this Wednesday behind, the high school  gym.  As promised earlier this month,  here is a diagram of the soccer  pitch and location of players at  the start of a game.  Bathtubs  A bathtub built by Marty  Knutson at Coho Marina, in  Madeira Park finished twenty-  sixth in the recent Nanaimo Bath  Tub Race across the Strait of  Georgia. The entry of the Sechelt  Kiwanis Club, piloted by Doug  Arnett with Ray Cox, Ron Marshall and Paddy Roye in the  escort boat also finished the race.  The Kinsmen boat was in 66th  position, finishing in a time of  3 hours and twenty minutes.  There has been an unconfirmed  report that a boat built and entered without sponsorship by  Bob White of Gibsons finished  as high as sixth in the annual  event.  Fishing  bargain  Craig Goodman of Madeira  Park is a young man with an idea.  Craig runs a charter boat out of  Lloyds Shell Marina in Garden  Bay, Pender Harbour. The boat  is the Kodiak II and charters  regularly for salmon fishing trips  for a rate of $200.00. per day.  Craig's idea is that it might be  possible to encourage residents  of other areas to try the salmon  fishing off Pender Harbour and  to that end he is offering a special  daily rate of $60.00 per day for  four people on the Kodiak H.  This represents a saving of almost  eighty percent over the existing  rates. "I just want to see how  this thing will go," said Goodman  to the Coast News last week.  Egmont  meeting  An important meeting is being  planned by the United Native  Nations in the Egmont Community Hall on Sunday, July 31st,  at 2:30 p.m. The purpose of the  meeting is to elect officers for  the association.  Eligible to attend are all persons over the age of twelve years  who have one-quarter Indian  blood. Mr. Francis Smith, area  representative from Vancouver,  will preside over the meeting.  All interested parties are urged  to attend.  Clarification  Regional Board Chairman,  Harry Almond, wishes it understood that he, too, is in,favour of  the question of support monies  to offset the operating deficit  of the Gibsons swimming pool  going before public referendum.  It was generally reported last  week that only Regional Board  Director Peter Hoemberg was in  favour of referendum for regional  board support of the swimming  pool. It was the combined influence of Almond and Hoemberg which was responsible for  the motion to support the Gibsons  pool under the regional board's  three-mill levy tabled at the last  meeting ofthe regional board.  tennis  tournament  Don't forget the Sea Cavalcade  Tennis Tournament.

Brazilians show volleyball stuff  by Bob Cotter  Until Tuesday night Brazil  was known more for the quality  of its coffee than anything else.  Now we know that they produce  excellent volleyball players as  well.  On Tuesday, July 19th, MacKenzie University of Sao Paulo  Brazil, the number 2 university  team in all Brazil, defeated a  team of B. C. all-stars in 3  straight games: 15-12, 15-9,  15-12.  The first international, match  ever stage'd in Gibsons was an  outstanding success. The 450  people who packed Elphinstone  gymnasium witnessed an impressive display of volleyball action.  Although they trailed early in  each ofthe three games, the well  disciplined Brazilian team, with  their precision passing and lightening fast attack, were more than  the B.

'$ view  -A-Continued from Page 3  My second point for preferring  a massive water supply for fire  protection is that fireproofing  and sprinkling are basically only  a first line of defence. If a fire  does get away as it frequently  does even in so-called "fireproof" buildings, the only hope  of controlling it and saving a  part of the structure rests with  the  firemen.     This   eventually  Gibsons  Council  ��� Continued from Page 1  conflict with Sea Cavalcade plans.  Alderman Goddard also reported  that she had informed the Volunteer Ad-Hoc Committee for Field  Sports that they were too late  for inclusion in this year's Neighbourhood Improvements Grant  but that she would keep in touch  to ensure their input into further  recreational decisions.  The July 19th meeting also  saw Alderman Metzler commend  Village-Clerk for being able to  hire twenty-one students on the  summer employment program.  The Dayton and Knight report  on the water supply for Gibsons  was accepted by the village  council and copies distributed to  the press. Alderman Ted Hume  moved that the collection of  garbage go on the village tax  rolls for 1978. The motion was  seconded by Alderman Goddard  and carried.  bears careful thinking, about by  all those concerned with.keeping  a high school in Pender Harbour.  We have been twice lucky so  far, but if the school is ever  totally destroyed again, especially  without insurance, . it would  almost certainly be moved to.  Sechelt. If a substantial part of  the structure were saved however, there would be a good case  for rebuilding on the same site.  Arguments such as these can  go on forever, but all they really  accomplish is to take our attention away from the basic absurdity cf building a million-dollar  building with a two-bit water  system. We have to keep coming  back to that. It's like building  a sixty-foot yacht and then saying  you can't afford a good rope to  tie it up with.  I am sure the School Board  can make the Provincial Government see this point if they can  first be made to see it themselves, and I urge all residents to  sign our petition and write letters  in the hope this will happen soon.

Box 381 Sechelt, B.C.  885-9345 VON 3AO  Editor:  Like David Fearn and many  other Granthams Landing property owners, we are very unhappy  with the way in which the meeting  to discuss the proposed takeover  of the Granthams Landing Water  System by the Regional Board  was handled.  Statements made at this meeting and widespread rumors in  the community that Granthams  Landing cannot deliver enough  water to fight fires, that insurance  companies may refuse to sell  fire insurance to Granthams  Landing home owners unless we  join the Regional District and also  that Grantham's water is polluted  are all FALSE.  Statements like these are designed to frighten people into  accepting the takeover.  The Regional District (Dayton  and Knight) proposes bringing  water from miles away, down  back roads to Granthams. To  quote from Dayton and Knight's  Report this system is "inefficient  and energy costly". It puts forward a cheaper and better plan  for a future West Howe Sound-  Gibsons wide network. Perhaps  some day all our little water communities would like to join in  but for now we're all happy with  what we have.  The takeover of the Granthams  Landing Water System is not to  benefit the Granthams people  who are already very well served  with water. Why should Granthams Landing property owners  be stampeded into accepting an  "inefficient and energy costly"  system to accommodate the land  speculators who want to develop  property above Granthams?

Editor:  It was with relief that I read  in your paper about plans for the  marina in the Bay being halted.  I understand that our Council  is still pressing for it.  I have seen the plan for the  floating breakwater and feel  that it would not cause a swirling  motion of the water as it does not  catch the fast water from the Gap.  Vancouver considered one of  these at' one of their beaches  and gave it up as it affects the  sand drop and changes the  character of the beach.  I think the best political advice  I've heard in a long time was  when the Mayor of Campbell  River advised all residents to  withold their taxes for three  years in order to bring. their  council to their senses.  r|    * Eileen Glassford ;  Gibsons  Ik  SUPERIOR ELECTRIC  FOR GUARANTEED SERVICE  CALL R.

It is one of their most fascinating attractions. You'll swim in it, sail in it, fish in it, you'll  soak up the sun beside it on the pink sand beaches.  When your eyes leave the sea, they'll enjoy a landscape full of colour. There is nothing monotonous  about Bermuda. Brilliant flowers and shrubs as  exotic as their names - poinciana, bougainvillea,  hibiscus, poinsetta, oleander - brighten your visit  while they accent the sun-washed pastel houses,  and show off the white terraced rooftops. These  are cherished as much for their charms as for the  vital purpose they serve in being the major catchments of the water supply.  If you are lucky you may come out ahead and pay for  your holiday. The casinos are comparable to Nevada,  slots, dice and all the others.  Bermudians enjoy having you there, and they show  it because they are proud of their home. You can  feel that pride in the way they keep their island  and the way they share it with you.  If you are flying to Toronto or Montreal this summer,  for $7.00 more I can send you to Bermuda.  i  TURISTANO  INTERNATIONAL   TRAVEL  SECHELT 885-3277  Regular prize of $5.00 will be awarded for the correct location of the above.

Letters from the 'Guess Where9 mail bag  Dear Sir: Dear Sir:  The picture this week is an  Indian carving, in driftwood,  located behind St. Mary's Hospital near the parked cars and  just across the drive from the  main door ofthe hospital.  Sechelt  Local company B. E. Electric  was awarded the contract for.  electrical work in connection with  the Sunshine Coast Arena at the  recent meeting of the Sechelt  council, held on Wednesday,  July 20th. B. E. Electric was  awarded the contract after their  tender bid proved to be considerably lower than that of their  opposition, Richmond Fire  Security.  Also in connection with the  arena, there was some unresolved  discussion at the meeting on the  merit of requesting regional  district assistance with the operating cost of the arena.  In other council business,  Alderman Morgan Thompson  reported on the first public meeting held on the Sechelt Vicinity  Plan. He reported that the regio-  ' nal district is to take expropriation action to secure the sewage  treatment plant site, that the  Regional Water system was to  be expanded to include Gibsons  and the Redrooffs Road area,  and that work had resumed on  the Chatelech School access road.  The troublesome business of  trail bikes on the power line in  Sechelt seemed close to solution  at the July 20th meeting. It  was reported that a 40-acre site,  available for trail riding, may now  be developed due to the prohibition of trail bikes in Sechelt.  There was also some discussion  about underground hydro wiring  and drainage crossovers before  the curb project on Cowrie Street  gets    underway. Alderman  Thompson is to check about the  crossovers and the possibility of  installing curbs on the south  side   of   Cowrie   Street   simul  taneously.
