'"^'Z&Stmpmm  '���VW'-V?-'-  p  uriaEi^i  iie Sunshine  Published at Gibsons, B.C.  25* per copy on newsstands  Serving theSunshjne Coast since 1945  Volume 30, Number 35  August 30,1977.  Gibsons to get  water referendum  Some controversial developments came before the regional  board at their regular meetingheld on Thursday, August 25th.  Included in the directors' discussions were the tie-in with the  Gibsons water system, the Gfesons swimming pool, the Granthams Landing water controversy, and the controversy oyer  recycling re-opened by the direct action of Peter Light of Storm  Bay in Sechelt last week.  In the matter of. the Gibsons water system, a letter was  received from the Minister of Municipal Affairs which directed  the regional board that a referendum should be held to determine the wishes ofthe electorate in the matter of the tie-in of  the Gibsons and regional water systems. The letter from the  Department of Municipal Affairs was in response to a request  by the regional board dated July 26th for enabling legislation  to allow them to proceed with the junction of the two systems.  The referendum wili probably be held tKs fall.  Granthams Landing is another    however, the regional board de  ft  t  %���  J  $���  t  a-  S ���':  district'which has been in the  midst of heated debate recently  regarding the desirability of  joining the Regional water system. At a meet ng held on  August 13th a large majority of  the Granthams esidents present  indicated a preference for a referendum to decide whether or not  their Improvement District should  join the regional'water system.  Subsequently it was discovered  that an Improvement District  cannot legally hold a referendum  and the trusteesofthe Granthams  Landing Improvement District  approached the regional board  with the request that they should  hold the referendum.  At the August 25th meeting,  dined to hold the referendum on  behalf of Granthams, giving as  its reason the fact that the regio-,  nal board had already been  accused as medding in the affairs  . of the Improvement District and  wished to avoid further such  accusations. It was the feeling  among the regional board directors that {he Granthams Landing  Improvement District should take  care of its own decision-making  process.  Earlier in the summer Area  "F" Director Bernie Mulligan  had made the motion that regional, board financial support for  the Gibsons swimming pool  should not have to go to referendum   but   should   be   included  fcw^.v;*^  The rash of minor traffic accidents continued all  over the Sunshine Coast last week. The upper  picture depicts a motor bike which was in a  collision at the junction of North Road and Highway 101 in Gibsons.  The rider was thrown over  under the; three mil limit. The  motion i was tabled at that time  when the conviction was expressed that to allow Gibsons, which  had refused to join the recreational function,-to have their  swimming pool funds through  without going to. referendum  while the rest of the regional  district had to go through the  referendum process : for their  recreational projects could not  be countenanced. 7 When the  motion was taken from the table  at the August 25th meeting,  Director Mulligan, after considerable discussion, agreed to  withdraw his motion The village  council of Gibsons will again be  invited to join die regional district's recreational function so  that support funds for the operation of the Gibsons swimming  pool can go befoe the voters of  the district along with other recreation projects.  The question ofrecycling which  had been raised again because  of the action taken by Peter  Light of Storm Bay came in for  considerable discussion. It was  decided that the matter should  be referred to the public utilities committee and that a committee should be struck, to consist not of board members alone,  for the purpose of ecamining the  issue.  Lights but  in Harbour  The entire top end of thei Sunshine Coast was plunged into  darkness on Saturday night  when a tree was dropped across  the power line about one, mile  west of the Riggers Roost.  11 DohrW BdixWdfPm^tikaWoui '  was falling,; a 'large';cedar s free  whenit came back on him and  broke the line and also blocked  Highway 101.  The accident happened about  5.30 p.m. and ittookB.C. Hydro  crews about five hours to restore  power to the Pender Harbour  area. Four spans of wire were  broken and one pole completely  destroyed. Repars that have  been effected are only of a  temporary nature.  Dynamite  at Dump  The Gibsons RCMP wishes to  notify the pubic fiat sticks of  dynamite should not be disposed  of at the dump even if they are  wet and soggy or if the caps are  off. They may fell hto the hands  of children and unti they are  completely desfroyed, they remain a public danger. If you  find any, you can get in touch  with the RCMP or with any of  the local blasting outfits. Last  week there were 105 sticks of  dynamite found at the dump.  They were prompt^ disposed of  by Mr. McCready of Davis Bay.  If anyone wishes to destroy  their own dynamite, k is strongly  advised to use kerosene to do  the job since gasoline may  trigger the dynamte even if it  is wet. ���  A Light load  Storm Bay resident Peter Light  set up camp by the Cenotaph' in  Sechelt last week as a one man  recycling depot It was Light's  intention to suggest by example  to the residents of the Sunshine  Coast that it wasn't necessary to  wait for government grants or  regional board. money if they  wished to recycle that part of  their waste that was recyclable.

Barbara Williams was back in  her hometown last weekend, as  a guest star in a segment of the  CBC series The BeadKombea.  Barbara grew up and went to  school here in Gibsons and started acting with a bit part in the  Driftwood Players production of  The Waltz of the Tonadon in  December 1971. Her next role  with the local drama dub will  still be remembered by some of  our readers. It was the memorable portrayal of die tortured  young woman in Suddenly Last  Summer, a role played in the  movie version by Elizabeth Tay-  CBC party  Over one hundred and fifty  people enjoyed tie hospitality  of the Beachcombers crew last  week in an outdoor pig roast  and salmon barbecue. The affair,  an annual event, was held this  year on the beach ki front of the  Bonniebrook Lodge at Gower  Point. Pictures inside.  Pioneer  passes on  Long time resident of Pender  Harbour, Mr. Jack Edmonds  died suddenly on Saturday night.  Mr. Edmonds, who was seventy-.  six years old, had been resident  in Pender Harbour for over  fifty years and throughout  that time had been an active  citizen in community affairs.  Among his many contributions  were years of service to the  Pender Harbour Qedit  Union.  Mr. Edmonds is survived in  the Harbour area by many  relatives.  lor. The local production won the  Vancouver Island Drama Festival that year and in the B.C.  Drama Association finals in  Dawson Creek, Barbara was  adjudged the best actress in  amateur theatre in the province  that year.  Following this success Barbara  studied theatre at Langara Col  lege for one year before joining  the active and innovative Tahna-  mous7 Theatre Company with  whom she has worked for four  years now, garnering much  critical acclaim fir her work  with the often controversial  group.  Barbara's    present    vignette  with The Beachcombers is  be  lieved to be her fist foray into  the world of television and there  is in the offing a possibility that  she will be offered a principle  role in a feature film soon to be  made in Alberta.  A gifted and dedicated actress  who has worked hard at polishing  her skills, this local product may  be standing on the threshhold  of a significant theatrical career.  Local girl Barb Williams was bade in town last week for a few days. Barbara was appealing  in a segment of the Beachcombers. She is pictured here aboard Frank Braithwaite's boat  the Babalatchi which is also used in the episode.  Delivered to EVERY address on  shine Coast every Tuesday 2.  Coast News, August 30,1977..

The Gibsons Marina  The Gibsons Marina questionnaire has  been hailed in some quarters as evincing  strong local support fir the proposed new  marina, this despite (he fact that only 224  people answered thequestions. It's odd,  is it not that when 224people answer the  questionnaire on the marina it hailed  as solid evidence and yet some weeks  ago when six hundred people answered  the questionnaire about recycling and the  temporary support needed to keep Peninsula Recycling open ting the regional  board directors dismissed the sampling  as being inconsequential. It is apparent  that relevance is in the eye of the beholder.  In addition, just over half of the respondents were Gfcsons residents, and  over twenty-five Decent don't live on  the Sunshine coast at all. Can one hundred and twenty one Gibsons residents  be regarded as a representative sampling  of opinion?  What was particularly noticeable about,  the questionnaire, it would seem from  this point of view, was the question it  did not ask. Nowhere in the questionnaire form was the question asked:  "Are you in favour of a new marina in  the bay? An opponent of the marina  would have very little motivation for  dealing with the questionnaire at all.  Now it may indeedbe true that lack of  moorage in the harbour is severely  hurting the tourist and business potential  of the lower village but there is real  concern being expressed about the effect  on the bay of two tuidred and eighty-  eight additional bertte for boats. Alderman Metzler, Chairman of the Marina  Committee, maintahs that the new  marina will actually improve the flushing  action of the tides h Gibsons harbour  and this may well be the case. Surely,  however, it is time for some explanation  to be offered as to how these improvements would be effectuated so that some  of the concern bong expressed could  be eased.  Whether the village council so wishes  or not, the impression is being fostered  that the marina project is being quietly  pushed through in flie hope that the  public will hardly be aware of it until it  is an accomplished fact. Some clear,  specific information night go a long way  towards easing the public mind. Perhaps  it will yet be forthcoming.  Libraries  One wonders abot the recent library  questionnaire which emanated so light-  heartedly from the regional board.   We  are on record as favouring the unification  of water systems on the Sunshine Coast  - but libraries would seem to be a different  . sort of thing entirely.    Local librarians  in Gibsons inform us that the libraries  are primarily used by the young and the  elderly and there would seem to be a  good case to be made for local libraries  in every little settlement,  ideally they  should be close to the post office where  people have to go in any case.   A large  central library facility, in  Sechelt say,  would do very little for  the  old age  pensioner in Madeira Park who has no  transportation,   or fir  a  youngster   in  Port Mellon.  As Lester Peterson points out in his  letter to the editor, fhere is a. movement  towards   decentralization  even   in   city  libraries. If the regional board wishes to  improve library servce perhaps it could  spend the money wisely by aiding the  community libraries which provide convenient service to the residents of their  specific area and offer the opportunity  of   community   involvement,   with   its  therapeutic side effects, to the  volunteer workers.  This may well be an area  in which regional centralization would  not be a blessing.  Water, water. . .  The tale of the two water systems  continues to unfold. Now the village of  Gibsons, with no noticeable clamour from  the general public, is to have a referendum to decide whetha- or not their water  system should be tiedin with the regional  water system. Granthams Landing  Improvement District, which has been  clamouring for a cferendum, is not  allowed to have one by municipal law.  They will have to ind another method  of making their mindsup.  Suffice to say that* is still the opinion  here that the rationalization of local  water systems to avcfl costly duplication  and to provide a strong pressure flow  throughout the region from the mountain  lakes above Chapman Creek still seems  like simple common sense. Besides the  improved fire protection the gravity-fed  system will provide, fiere are the economies to be realized by the regional  board's borrowing power and the minimization of costly pumping.  But let the voters dedde. In Gibsons,  it will be by referendum and in Granthams one is convinced that a ballot can  be arranged which will be seen by all  to be fair and representative and the  decision reached accepted with equanimity and good grace.  ...from the files of Coast News  mberlpen  5 YEARS AGO  Controversy still surrounds the location  of the relocated Highway 101 at a meeting between the public concerned and  Hon.

Where I went to school  '   the Catholics and the Protestants  "^were  segregated"'into  different'  7 schools. Every day. ait lunch time  .;,, sortie boys from our school would  meet some boys from the other  school   for   a   ritualistic , battle  with  stones and  fists.     Sometimes we battled, unconscious of  the historic irony, in a centuries  old graveyard where stood the  moss-covered headstones of the  Covenanters who had died for  their religious freedom some two  or three hundred years before.  We needed no excuse for these  battles   other   than    that   they  were Catholic and we were not.  Later in the ten years I spent  in Montreal you didn't have to'  look too far to see the strains  between the English-speaking  and the French-speaking. The  kids met and had fist fights and  threw stones and insults. Elsewhere in rural Canada, in the  Yukon, in interior B.C. and here  on the coast, again you don't  have to look too hard to see the  racism and intolerance with  which the native people of North  America are treated.  And then there are the Irish.  I confess that years ago I got .  tired of the endless tragedy of  the Irish.     I can  remember a .;  few years back Peter Trower tried -:  to interest me in a book he was :  reading called, I think, Famine  which was all about the tremen- '  dous suffering of the Irish in the  19th Century and "the troubles"  continue bloody and unabated to  this day.   The monstrous bombings of civilians as a terror tactic  I have expressed opinions about  when   discussing   the   neutron  bomb and sundry twentieth century atrocities now accepted as  the   norm   for   our   embattled  species.   Compassion for human  suffering is a well which can be  exhausted if visited by the same  pitcher too often, and it is sometime now since I declared my own  quiet "A plague on both your  houses" insofar as the embattled  bigots in Ireland are concerned.  So when, during the eight  o'clock quiet of the Dogwood  Cafe this morning as the Lower  Village began to stir awake, I  was not too immediately enthralled when Howard the lawyer  asked me if I was acquainted  with the case of the Irish terrorist  McCann who was apparently  apprehended in Canada under the  name of Kennedy. I answered  uncompromisingly that I was  tired of the Irish and their suffering, as I had Peter Trower  several years ago. Don't misunderstand me, I wish for them'  peace and plenty and freedom  from terror but they do seem to go  on and inefectually on suffering  through the centuries.  Crisply      and      unexpectedly  "   Howard the lawyer informed me;  >-*hat he himself was not,vin,,the;  least   interested   h    the   Irish,  background of the story but that  it  was  a fundamental  question  of human rights here in Canada  that concerned him.- Irrespective  of what, this  man  might  have  done   elsewhere   he   has,   said  <V Howard  the  lawyer,   some,  inalienable human rights on which  7 the Canadian authorities in their  desire   to   please   the   foreign  ^powers who are anxious to capture       Kennedy-McCann       are  thoroughly trampling.  Despite the early hour and my  desire to enjoy my early morning  ' reverie a little  longer,  Howard  succeeded in nudging my social  conscience awake and I began to  ��� pay attention.  Kennedy-McCann  , had entered Canada on a work  permit, it appeared. He had com-  ; mitted no misdemeanour in this  country,   but   the    Immigration  authorities had seized him on a  technical point of failing to provide   accurate    information    on  entry and he has since on this  technicality    been    incarcerated  without bail for four months.  It was Howard's contention  that it simply did not matter what  Kennedy-McCann had done elsewhere. Before the laws of this  country he had to be treated  with the respect due to all human  beings. If one person's human  rights could be ignored, irrespective of his background, then the  rights of all were challenged.  I was reminded of John Donne's, magnificent dictum that no  man was an island entire of itself, that when the bell tolls  whether for human mortality or  the death of ���' an . individual's  liberty it tolls for all of us. From  somewhere in the ragshop of my  studies in the humanities I recollected another tag-end which  said that the price of liberty was  eternal  vigilance and  I was a  little chastened.  As I reflected over my second  cup of tea on the conversation  I had just had I realized that I  had been guilty of a little bigotry  of my own. Because ofthe mental  set which I have described above  about the Irish I had been willing  to ignore the plight of Kennedy-  McCann   without   reflection   or  consideration.   That is prejudice  and bigotry in one of its dresses.  I was  grateful  to  Howard  the  lawyer for making me aware of  it  and   reminded  that   liberty's  first   battlefield   is   within   the  individual conscience.    If it be  lost there then it will be lost in  the larger arena soon.  The fact of the matter is that  a man in Vancouver is being  treated by those who should uphold the law in a fashion which  is contrary to both the letter and  the spirit of the laws of this  country.  Kennedy-McCann may be a  misguided zealot with a penchant  for violence but within the con-&  fines of this country he has the  same human rights as anyone  else. If they are being violated  then the human rights of all of  us are being violated, and we  must object.  It is not a fnatter of bleeding-  heart liberalism, it is a fundamental question concerning the very  principle upon which our society  is founded and as such deserves  our best attention.  I am grateful to Howard the  lawyer for reminding me of this  fact. I am grateful to him too for  giving me a glimpse of a deep-  felt concern on his part for the  law in  whose  service  he  is  a  practitioner.    One of my othe*.  prejudices,   which   I   have   expressed before in these columns,  is a certain cynicism about the  powerful and remunerative legal  profession.      In   the   best-kept  philosophic gardens the weeds of  prejudice and bigotry will spring  up and I am grateful to Howard  the lawyer for making me aware  of a couple in mine this morning.

Women's Lib is a well documented phenomenon; its history,  aims, objectives, strategies and  tactics  have   been   covered   ad  nauseum in every possible publication from Mad Magazine to The  National Review.    But, what of  the brief, but equally noteworthy  story  of  the   Men's   Liberation  Movement?    It just so happens  that this humble correspondent  was one of the founding members  of the Gibsons cell of the Men's  Liberation Movement of Canada,  to the best of my knowledge, the  only such organization in existence at the time.   Needless to say  the heyday of this organization  was some five or six years ago  when such things were. considejCr,  ed fashionably funky but despite  its rise in the very midst of the  most strident period of female  assertiveness,   this   courageous  little band of male heroes mana-  ted to keep the group together for  at least four meetings.  The   group   was   surprisingly  ecclectic,   its   members   coming  from all age groups, all parts of  the continent and from all walks  of life, but the differences among  the  members  were   more   than  made   up  by  the  common   experience of having been victimized by female domination (except  for me of course, being the only  sane one among them, by nature  a joiner and hot minding a legitimate excuse to drink lots of beer).  There was Arnie, thirty years  old,   Jewish,   extremely   intelle-  gent, definitely a city boy, pro-  1  fessional and very cold, logical  and insensitive; I got the impression he was the sort of man most  women would despise.   He also  didn't leave much doubt that he  had  some   pretty  bizarre   lusts  and passions, sort of a poor man's  Portnoy.     Poor  Arnie  was   incurably heterosexual and  since  he had never been able to find a  lady   to   share   his,   well,   "interests", he took it upon himself  to  condemn  the  entire  female  sex for its "lack of understand-  ing   .  "Men are the victims of the  mundane   bourgeouis   sensibilities of women," he would say.  "The only way we can free ourselves from this decadent social  miasma (he was very well educated) is to set about to liberate  women from the corrupted capitalistic moral attitudes of men."  (Right on Arnie, who's got the  opener?)   "If we can first work  towards the liberation of women"  he would continue disapprovingly,   "then we will  have  struck  a blow for the liberation of men."  "I can't understand the clinging insecurity of women," good  old Jock would invariably chime  in at this point. Jock had a point.  He was a lean, tough minded,  forty-two year  old   intellectural  with  six kids and a wife  who  wouldn't quit.    He had run off  with a sixteen year old golden  age groupie with a great body  and he resented the idea of his  former "old lady" bringing the  kids around once a month when  she collected the child support  money.     Here  he  had   "found  himself" just before it was "too  late"   and   his   "childishly   insecure" wife was displaying her  silly   resentment  by   reminding  outgrown".  Then there was Clive.    Clive  was   one   of  those   thin,   pale,  emaciated nineteen year old boys  who bring out the worst (or the  best) in some women.     Ladies  seemed to take Clive like he was  the child they'd never had.  They  smothered   him   with   affection;  they cuddled, soothed, warmed  and caressed the lad to distraction.    Not just girls mind- you,  women; all sizes, shapes, ages  and conditions seemed driven to  take this disreputable flower child  into  their  multiyarious  bosoms  as if he were the original egg.  "AH they want is my body,"  his snivelling barely audible over  Arnie's snarls. "Most of them  .don't even talk, to me>and when >  they do its like I was some little >  kid." We were sympathetic  with Clive, "That's O.K. Clive,  tell us about it and everything will  be just fine." The poor kid.  Clive was so distraught and  humiliated by' his experience  that he would /hardly ever tell  us anything. " '  According to Clive, tie came to  our meetings because he thought  it was necessary to  "educate"  women about the "true feelings"  of men. For some peculiar reason  he agreed with Arnie that men  would continue to be the  "victims" of dominant women until  women   could   free   themselves  from  many  of their   ingrained ,  social attitudes.    At the time it 7  seemed   like   pretty   convoluted  ���,  thinking, something like saying  that   the   real   victims   of   the  whites' suppression of the blacks  in South Africa were the white-  men themselves.  Then of course  most serious thinking gets pretty  ridiculous   after   half   a   dozen  jars of ale.  The  wisdom "and  experience  of our stalwart little band was  provided by Gerry.   Gerry was a  fifty-six year old man who had .  "moved into separate quarters"  after his last child had left home.  As he saw it he was the victim  of a changing culture.    He had  been   married  for   twenty-eight  .  years   and   had   supported   his  homemaker wife and raised his  five children until the last had  left home.     After the last kid  had gone he sat down at  the . ���:���?  dinner table one night,  looked    :  across the table and didn't recognize the person sitting there. He    ���  said something to her and she    .;  said something in reply and for    ,  the first.time in twenty years he    v  realized  he was living with  a    :  stranger. -.  Age and wisdom bare little *  bitterness and as he spoke Gerry *~  never once displayed any regret,  anger or bitterness. Even though  he was inclined to take most of  the responsibility for the situation  onto himself he told us that he  just couldn't bring himself to  sleep with a stranger.  "We were both taken in by a \.  society that puts such an empha- '!_  sis on raising children that we 3  sacrificed our relationship to it. -\  Why should we do that to our- ;  selves?" he would ask.

Granthams water - against integration  Editor  With reference' to your lead  article and editorial in your issue  of August 16th regarding Granthams: Landing water.  Today, during one of the  longest and hottest periods in  recent memory, I had the pleasure of inspecting our Granthams  Landing water supply, in company with Mr. Fred Feyer, and  Mrs. Joan Park.  I must say I was astonished by  the volume of the overflow from  our intake, and the chill of the  ice-cold water. Despite the long  dry hot spell we are experiencing,  the flow has not diminished by  one single drop and is ice-cold  even in this heat. I put my hand  into the settling tank of the  Soames Point supply (which  comes from the same source) to  feel the sides of the tank. No  sign of slime or algae could be  felt against the rough concrete,  even after more than twenty  years since installation. Even in  the overflow in the creek, the  stones are free of slime and algae  and the water is crystal clear.  Our (Granthams) water intake  is 'directly above the spring and  even though our pump was operating, the surplus overflow was  bubbling up in huge swirls,  probably some hundreds of gallons per minute.  The creek above the intakes of  both Granthams and Soames has  been perfectly dry for several  months, yet the overflow from  both Granthams and Soames  permit quite a sizeable stream to  flow into Howe Sound.  Few communities are blessed  with the wonderful clear cold  spring as Granthams and Soames. It is without doubt our most  valuable asset and should be  cherished as such.  Many communities would go  to almost any length to maintain such a valuable resource as  we have.  Besides Granthams and  Soames Point, the overflow takes  care ofthe Indian Reserve.  This great stream of pure cold  water, evidently comes from a  vast underground river, coming a  great distance, probably from a  glacier, hence its coldness.  I have. been - told there are  one or two other I springs, no  doubt from the same source.

DahBoys  ist," he would say, "as I am a  believer in liberation for women.  For years I was trapped by the  guilt I felt for the part I played  in making my wife dependent on  me."  There were some others, with  different kinds of stories; like  Bud, whose wife had run off with  a sewing machine salesman from  Winnipeg leaving him with the  two^Jrids and the payments on a  new "Whirlastitch". When tt  came right down to it however,  they were all talking about freedom; liberation from some kind  of impossible expectation.  As for me, liberation meant  one thing. After the meeting I'd  get somebody to drive me home,  a good half hour before my wife  finished the late shift. I'd send  the baby sitter home, check the  kids, wash the dishes, sweep the  floor, brush my teeth, turn out  the lights and jump into bed just  as she was pulling into the driveway. As I heard the key rattle  in the door I'd lay back with a  sigh of relief, "Free at last, free  at last, thank God I'm free at  last."  the  be  The Crown of Glory  would like to notify all  customers that, effective  September Ist ,1977, the  shop will be closed on  Mondays.

DalsFraMr*   886-9744  Your Hair Car* Contra  Mr. Brooks, Inspector for the  Garibaldi Health Unit has continually inspected and monitered  this water on a regular basis,  and has told Miss Betty Turnbull,  that she could quote him "That  the water is good'".  To abandon this beautiful,  cold, good, crystal clear water  unpolluted and unalterated God's  gift to mankind in favour of a  man-made lake, or impounded  body of doubtful water, subject  to all sorts of pollution hazards,  seems to be the height of imbecility, not to say criminality.  We at Granthams have no  worries about chlorine, fluorine  or pollution, and very sensible  and adequate sprinkling regulations.  With a new and larger tank,  and some improvements in the  distribution, it should not be too  difficult, nor too expensive to  maintain our supply of good fresh  water indefinitely.  As a matter of record, twice in  the last three years the Granthams Landing Improvement  . District have voted the monies  for these improvements, and the  Trustees instructed accordingly.  Yet for some reason, possibly  known only to the Trustees, who  on their own volition took it upon  themselves to ignore these in-  ' structions and thwart the wishes  of the Granthams Landing Improvement District.  One begins to wonder if there  is some ulterior motive in all this  procrastinatin, lies, and rumours  and the attempt to bring in the  Regional Water Board to take  over our system.  The wishes of the Granthams  Landing Improvement District  have been totally ignored by the  Trustees. The referendum of  April 23rd, was conducted in the  most outrageous manner. One  person who was not even a member of the Granthams Landing  Improvement District was permitted a vote. Several other  irregularities were also noted.  The rumours and scare tactics  being spread around regarding  lack of water to fight fires is all  untrue. It was said that at the  fire on Marine Drive in Granthams, there was only one half  tank cf water available. This is  false.���After the fire was struck  out by 'the Volunteer Firemen,  Mr. Creswell, our water man  measured the tanks and found  one tank full and one tank half  full. Therefore the facts are that  only one half a tank of water was  required to quench the fire.  As for the remarks by Mr.  Mulligan, "we were able to save  the chimney" was not only facetious,-but malicious  and quite  untrue. Mr. Feyer was able to  salvage quite a large quantity  of usable lumber from the burned-out structure. Also the fuel  tank in the basement, though  full, remained intact. This despite the fact that the flames were  through the roof by the time the  fire was noticed and the alarm  turned in.  These snide remarks and  vicious rumours do our community harm and only serve to  divide us.  Regarding the photograph  accompanying your lead article,  I can only comment that a one  half inch hole had been bored  near the bottom of the. tank to  test the soundness of the wood.  An ill fitting plug was not properly inserted into the hole. I have  been reliably informed that when  a proper plug was driven into  the hole the leak stopped..  Considering the procrastination  by the Trustees in not proceeding  with the installation of the new  tank and with all the controversy  pertaining thereto, plus the  rumours and ill-founded statements, one begins to wonder if  there is a concerted campaign by  a small group who have an axe  to grind and wish to force this  community into the Sunshine  Coast Regional Board in order to  advance their own selfish interests,  I have no axe to grind, I wish to  live in peace and harmony with  my neighbours, and will do my  utmost to keep our most valuable  asset inviolate.  Mr. David Fearn  Editor:  I have just been leading some  of the worst drivel I h ave seen for  some time on the subject of the  proposed change of management  for the several water systems in  the south end oftheS.C.R.D.  Apart from the wordiness of  at least one letter lam surprised  by the lack of understanding as  to just what takes place and its  effects on the user h the change  of management.  Make no mistake fie principle  difference in changing the  management is that the regional  district can finance any necessary  costs with ease and the smaller  municipal bodiescannot..  ^KoC^s    k\Aow\e\e\fS    wo��jO  \Hp^m3l?  *0(5V  v>f\\\e.s 9<lv- taw\f /  ^m___  Puerile blather Eke 'They have  given away our water system,'  'We will now pay through the  nose,' and the quite evident  feeling that somehow the transfer  of management and responsibility will adversry effect the  users ability to draw water from  the tap, would be amusing were  it not coming from the pen of  persons who are considered to  be well informed.  Such utter nonsense. People  should realize that no one pays a  cent for water, all charges under  this heading are far the cost of  collecting and delivering the  water itself is free.  The Regional District has  several advantages h this field.  Most of the water their system  delivers is powered by gravity.  A good deal of the Gibson water  either has to be Ifted from a  deep well dr liftedfrom the lower  to the upper Gibsons areas. Lifting and pushing water costs  more than gravity. And that's  fer damshure, to quote a noted  B.C. citizeness.  Now as to accountability,  Regional District is composed of  8 publically elected members,  3 or 4 of whom are from the area  effected by any change over. I  feel sure that those3 or 4 persons  will make sure that all the. rights  of the people they have been  elected to represent will be .  strenuously defended.  The title to the water system  and its assets, etc. will continue  to be the property of the public  at large, the heading on the bill  for water delivery may say Sunshine Coast Regis nal District  instead of Gibsons Village. All  municipal bodies are the children  of the Provincial Government  and are subject to the identical  stricture in the Municipal Act  covering that subject.  I could go on hbouring the  point but will cbse by saying  that the Regional District can deal  with water delivery cheaper and  more efficiently than small  municipalities whether they be an  incorporated Village or a Water  District.  Their ability to raise money is  predicated on the assets of the  .- whole. Regional District arid not  just the area to be served by a  local water supply which is .the  case with Granthams, Gibsons,  etc.  The Village of Sechelt has been  well served by behg an active  participant in die S.C.R.D.

Coast News, August 30,1977.  TESTAMENT FOR A FRIEND  When I departed the city,  many years back, I left a lot of  people behind me. Most of them,  I was not at all loath to leave.  Some other bum would fill my  barstool and as long as he had  entrance-fee or better, they'd  scarcely know the difference. But  I left a few friends also. They  were mostly guys who, at one  time or another, had helped me  through crises and although our  paths were destined to diverge  radically, I could never completely forget them. One such was a  fellow by the name of Ray Smith.  Actually, of all the people I  knew on the street, Ray probably  helped me the most over the long  haul. He was in his early thirties  when I first met him, a slight,  blonde man with a moustache  who always maintained a neat,  dapper appearance whatever the  nature of his finances. Actually,  when I initially knew him, Ray  worked quite steadily. He was a  cabbie and drove for most of the  downtown outfits at one time pr  another. He was also a devoted  racetrack buff in those days and  introduced me to numerous  horsey characters with names like  Quinella Bob and Greensheet  Cassidy. Like most of the street-  people, myself certainly not  excepted, he was overly fond of  the sauce but at this point, he  was living with a woman and  keeping his intake moreorless  under control.  Jtay and I lived only a few  blocks away from each other in  the West End. He, his girl-friend  and my lady of the moment, often  went beering together. We  shared a common interest in cartooning and became quite close  friends. I was also trying to  write without any remarkable  success but Ray kept my spirits  up with encouraging comments  every now and then. Ray's  fortunes were keeping a fairly  steady course at this juncture but  mine were definitely on the downgrade. I was scraping bottom  financially and to add to my problems, the couple who ran the  rooming-house where I stayed,  decamped one night, several  months in arrears to the real-  estate   outfit   that   owned   the  Pages  from a Li Fe-Log  Peter Trower  place. It was sold to a madam  who planned to turn it into a  combination brothel-bootleg  joint and I was evicted.  I spent a  nomadic two months crashing on  the floors and couches of various  friends, including Ray.    Finally,  he    located    me    a    dirt-cheap  sleeping-room  in   the   Kitsilano  district. The house was owned by  the sister of one of Ray's former  girl-friends.   The latter lady, an  attractive blonde was estranged  from her husband and lived on  the top-floor.   We discovered to  our mutual amazement that we  had   met  briefly   several   years  before in Kitimat. We had dated  once on  one occasion and  not  struck it off at all but the lady  had somehow  mellowed during  the interim.    We became quite  chummy which was convenient,  under the circumstances.     She  took to frequently feeding me and  otherwise brightening my poverty-hounded   existence.      I   was  much-indebted to Ray for steering  me   into   such   a   pleasant  situation.    I stayed there for a  good many months during which  time,  I did  my  elsewhere-described hitch with the Loganberry  Lancers.   Ray had taken a warehouseman's job up north and was  out of town during much of this  period.    He had developed an  unshakable belief (shared by few)  that I would someday make it as  a writer and seemed bound to be  my benefactor.    He insisted on  lending me money that I wasn't,  by any means, too proud to take  although I had no idea when I  would ever be  able  to  pay  it  back.   I suppose, between Betty  (the upstairs lady) and  Ray,  I  was a sort of kept man.   I hid in  my room  and  wrote  reams  of'  bad poetry to justify, their faith.  I began to get a few conscience-  pangs toward the end of this  very-beholden situation. The  writing just wasn't worth a damn.  I began to seriously consider  chucking the whole far-fetched  business and getting the hell  back to work. Then my brother,  Chris handed me what seemed a  better proposition. My sister-in-  law Yvonne, wanted to return to  work and, since I am an adequate  cook, it was suggested that I  take over the household chores  in exchange for room, board and  a bit of spending-money. They  had rented a large house near  the waterfront in North Vancouver and I agreed to try my hand  at running it and writing on the  side. It sounded great on paper.  I won't go into my experiences  as a houseboy as this story is  ' about Ray and he figured little  in the year of my turnabout  experiment. Suffice to say that  it started out well-enough but by  the time it was over, I had learned  * firsthand, most of the root-causes  of.Women's Lib. I began drinking copious amounts of surepti-  tious sherry out of a growing  sense of bored entrapment. It  all ended messily with an uncharacteristic blow-up between  Chris and myself. When it was  over, I found myself back on  Granville Street with such of my  gear as I could carry and fifty  dollars to my name. It felt like  the end of the world and I landed  up maudlin drunk with a couple of  street-friends, in the Blackstone  beer-parlour. One of my friends  was living ��� with a woman who  owned a rooming-house and I  ended up there in a small, deadly  room with a broken window. I  lay for two days in a state of depression that was almost terminal. I don't know where it would  have gone from there, had not  my old friend learned of my  altered circumstances and propitiously showed-up. Ray's  timing was inspired. If I .ever  needed moral support it was at  that low-ebb of my life. He got  me moved out of that deadend  room under the Granville Bridge  and back up the street to the  Prince Henry Rooms where he  was staying. It was a cheap  walk-up full of retired hustling-  ladies and war pensioners but it  was relatively clean and a definite improvement on the room I"  had vacated. It was the beginning of my most total-immersion  in the shabby existence of the  street a day to day drowning of  sufficient totality and downand-  out significance to warrant a  chapter of its own. It marked my  swan-song as a full-time pub-  ghost and guttersnipe. After  six-months of dank doings that  somehow included a brief, unlikely love-affair, I found I had  indulged my self-destructive tendencies to saturation-point.' Ray  continued to be supportive  throughout this period but it was  a wasted effort. I had become too  dispirited to write. In the end,  deep in debt both psychical and  monetarily,. I fled the grinding  city in a desperate attempt to  salvage my life and regain some  modicum of self-respect.  After my return to the country  and the healing labour of the  logging-camps, I naturally saw  less of Ray. We still got together  on my periodic visits to Vancouver and occasionally, he would  drop up to Gibsons for a visit but  the heyday of our camaraderie  was past. Over the subsequent  years, I managed to pay back  the money I owed him. Ray got  married and moved to the Interior for a couple of years but  when this brief union dissolved,  the city drew him back like a  magnet. It was the beginning of  a long and sad decline. His  drinking worsened and he was  no longer able to hold a cab-  driving job. Each time I saw him  now, he seemed more ground-  down and woebegone. A short  time ago, I was shocked and  saddened to learn that he had  died suddenly of a stroke. I  suppose most would call him a  loser but he was my friend at a  time when I had few real friends.  This piece is dedicated to his  memory.  .VSssufcJ  ��-.jNW0frlWW��i����M WWWHH f*M��M' 'f.  SPECIAL  LEAK SPEAKERS  reg. $1,500.00 pair  4195  NOW  pair  AGS.

The documentary which of  course includes much music was  compiled from 10 hours of conversation taped by Jim Bauer.  Lightfoot talks about his youth,  his divorce, his children, how  his songs came to be written and  how his fans have responded,  and assumes a new dimension  as his private image emerges.

From   the   United   Church   of  fence bill for equipment for our  armed forces will be at a minimum $1.8 billion annually.  Spending is now about four hundred and fifty million.  In the United States, despite  a president committed to nuclear  disarmament, the Senate and  Congress still fear the old Communist bogey and, presumably,  the Russians build up' their  missiles and bombers for similar  concerns about capitalism.  Surely disarmament is not a  foolish Utopian dream. Surely we  do not require the weapons of  world destruction simply to  handle terrorists or jungle warfare. Surely to postpone the day  of wrath and carnage is a laudable  effort.  Where then are the active and  clamorous voices for peace?  Where are the people who protested so vigorously the war in  Vietnam? Where are the true  peace parties, the parades for  disarmament?  The people who took to the  streets to stop war should now  march for peace. \  We 're supposed to be at peace.  With the horrors of the Vietnam war fading into history, the  armed struggles of liberation  movements in Africa and the activities of Middle East terrorists  are the main threats to world  stability. The fact that these  mini-wars are fairly light and non-  proliferating weapons curtails  somewhat their potential for  destruction.  We do not minimize these  struggles, nor do we say that  anything less than total peace  is the proper goal of all right-  minded people. However, it  seems that although we are at  peace, defence expenditures are  at an all-time high in most of the -  world.  And how is there to be peace  when   the   armaments   industry  and the military of most countries -  . - east and west - are engaged in ,  a race that defies all logic?  Canada has just purchased 130  new fighter aircraft for the largest  defence expenditure in our history and it is only the beginning.

The scene takes place  in the palatial estate of the broad-  bottomed Margaret Dumont, the  prim and proper matron who  served as straight man in many  ofthe Marx brothers comedies.  Groucho made his entrance in  a litter, carried by four bearers,  and jumped off to pace wildly  "around the room, fluffing out his  coattails like a demented duck,  waggling his eyebrows, rolling  ���his eyes, and doing things with  a cigar that defy rational description. He sang a small song:  "Hello my name is Snorer, the  african explorer...", to the tune  that was eventually to become his  theme song. In the midst of this  ���madness, a gentleman guest in  the scene faints, and falls to the  floor. Groucho runs over, lifts  the man's wrist, and looks up  'at the audience. "Either this  man is dead or my watch has  stopped."  ��� Unfortunately, the watches  don't stop. Men die, and Groucho is gone. Perhaps it's just as  well. Success had begun to stick  its clammy fingers into all of  his pockets. There is a lengthy  legal battle now taking place  over his estate, and the recent  prying by the media into his  deteriorating physical condition  Were tinged with the usual bald  tastelessness. I confess I was  glad that he should be allowed to  die quietly, rather than being  picked to death by the increasing  pack of vultures that surrounded  him. It's often regrettable, the  way we seem compelled to worry  the bones of those we make  famous.  Had  Groucho  been   able   in  those final days, he would have  '  disdained the entire manner of  his exit.   His was a humour that  played  no favourites,   and''cut  Rock hounds  starting up  . The Sunshine Coast Lapidary  Club is starting a new season with  a meeting on September 7th.  As last year, the club will sponsor  weekly workshops where instruction in cutting, shaping and  polishing rocks and semi-precious  stones will be given to members.  Also, lessons in silver-smithing  were sponsored and practice  :sessions were held. If enough  interest is shown, this will be  repeated this year. Several  field trips to hunt for material  were held and this year the first  field trip will be in September  ito Spencer, Idaho for fire opal.  A display case of lapidary work  was shown in the Gibsons Library  ancjtTthere are plans to continue  this again.

Everything  false fell to his fire. Organized  religion took a beating in one of  the stories he told about meeting  a priest. The priest said to him:  "Mr. Marx, I'd like to thank you  for all the joy you've put into the  world." "Yes. And I'd like to  thank you," said Groucho, "for  all the joy you've taken out of  the world."  The capacious-bosomed Ms.  Dumont, mentioned above, was,  as Hubert Evans might have described her, "a woman whose  Christian duty took in a lot of  territory." She was totally shock-  able, and in the movies she made  with the brothers, she was always  in a state of shock. In another  scene, with a war going on outside, Groucho and Dumont are in  a room together when a shell  flies through the window. Groucho leaps up and closes the windows. "Professor Quacken-  bush!" shrieks the lady, "what  are you doing?" "I'm fighting  for your virtue," returns Groucho, "which is more than you've  ever done." There was always a  hint of lechery about him. In  another movie, Groucho is the  dean of a college, interviewing a  young student and his coed girlfriend. The student has admitted  to doing several things quite  outside the rules, but it is the  coed whom 7 Groucho directs to  stay after school. "But why  should I stay after school?" she  squeaks, "I didn't do anything  wrong." "Yes," says Groucho,  "but it wouldn't be any fun  keeping him after school."  Everyone's willing to talk  about sex these days, but in the  forties, when the Marx brothers  made their films, and in the fifties, when Groucho hosted the  TV quiz show You Bet Your life,  sex was still a source for humour  rather than a source of exhaustive  >:rf��h�� g^�����<>n-  introspection. Chico, in his  shapeless hat, dumped wallpaper^ paste on vamps in clinging dresses, and Harpo chased  the ladies around, squeaking at  them with his bulb horn, or introducing them to a rubber turkey.  But the height of this ribaldry  was probably attained one night  when Groucho was interviewing  a couple on his quiz show. The  man announced that he had ten  children. "Ten!" said Groucho,  and his mouth fell open for a  second. * 'Listen," he said, "I  like a good cigar, but I take it  out sometimes."  The movies Groucho made  with his brothers are still film  classics, as timely today as they  were thirty years ago. They remain as sprightly, surprising,  uproarious, and as fast paced as  the day they were made. They  still have the ability to shock  modern audiences with their irreverence and wit, and they're  still bellyachingly funny. For  sheer zany, nonsensical action  they'll never be duplicated, and  even in their time they were  unique. The Marx brothers, for  instance, were the first people  to use black people in their films,  in parts specially written for  them. For this was a humour with  social conscience, and beneath  the laughter there were things  being said.  How desperately our society  needs a fool to look it in the eye,  and then laugh at it loudly.  Groucho Marx did just that. By  playing the ridiculous little man,  libidinously waddling through  the cardboard scenery of our pretensions, he gave us the gift of  laughter, the ability to see ourselves as, the ridiculous little  men we often are. He .did it  fearlessly and he did it well.  ' He wasn't careful about who he  poked fun at. And I like to think  even death took it's share of  abuse before it finally got him. I  can almost imagine the grim  reaper standing over Groucho's  bed, and I think I can even see  Groucho opening his eyes 'to  stare unhesitantingly back. It's  a matter of conjecture what  Groucho Marx might say to  death, but it pleases me to think  he. might have used one of his  most oft-quoted lines: "I never  forget a face, but in your case  I'll make an exception."

General Notes: Clearer, more  realistic thinking is now possible  as Neptune orbits more responsibly again. Any recent  muddles should slowly start to  untangle themselves.  Calm astrological conditions  are observed for the next few  days but the Labor Day weekend  will have its surprises. The moon  afflicted in Gemini' and other  poor travel aspects warn us to  buckle those seat belts - especially on Monday.  Mars and Jupiter are closely  aligned in Cancer and this aspect  often coincides with fire damage  to homes and hotels - so make  sure those burners are turned  "OFF".  Babies born mid-week will  develop a very original and optimistic outlook on life whilst  Labor Day arrivals will be extremely restless and attracted to  the unusual. Let's wish them  luck.

Through September 1977  From the beginning of September all provincial highways and most municipal signing will  be converted to the metric system as quickly  as possible. Signs designating distances in  miles will be changed to kilometres (km).  Speed zones in miles-'per-hour will be changed  to kilometres-per-hour (km/h). New metric  speed signs will become legal when they are  posted. Overpass arid bridge clearances will  be signed in both feet and metres.  HERE'S HOW DISTANCE SIGNS WILL BE CHANGED:  NEW  km  __?*.'  PARKSVILLE 37  CAMPBELL RIVER      154  PARKSVIl'F 23  CAMPBE>.l h'VER       96  WHY THE RUSH?  This is an important part of Canada's nationwide metric programme to convert all standard measurements to the decimal system - the  simple arithmetic method used by most countries in the world.  We have already become accustomed to the  change in heat measurement from fahrenheit  to Celsius. Weights will change from ounces to  grams; pounds to kilograms. Fluid measurements are already changing froth pints, quarts  and gallons to standardized litres. Distances  will be measured in millimetres (1/1000metre);  centimetres (1/100 metre); metres and kilometres (1000 metres).  It has been found in other countries that  phases of metric conversion introduced "cold  turkey" gain the quickest acceptance. Those  of us who laboured as schoolchildren to convert feet to yards to miles may have a little  trouble at first; but metric is being taught in  our schools; it is the universal language of  scientists and engineers; and, in the near future, will see full useage in the United States.  Let's do it now! ,  DISTANCE  One kilometre (km) is .621 of a mile.One mile is  1.609 kilometres (km); However, the easiest  way to visualize a kilometre is as % of a mile.  Here's a simple example of conversion:  SPEED  Remember, that as they are posted, new speed  zones in kilometres-per-hour (km/h) automatically become legal, even though they  may riot be a precise conversion from the prer.  vious speed limit irimph. Here are.some you  should become familiar with as soon as possible.  SPEEDOMETERS  Most 1977 and all 1978 model cars have speedometers and odometers calibrated in km/h  and krir. Some earlier model cars have speedometers with dual calibrations. If your speedometer indicates only mph, you may find this  conversion scale handy: Familiar speeds are in  large type: 7 ;j.

Coast News, August 30,1977.,  Nutrition notes  Question: My family grow tired  &f citrus fruits and juices when  A serve these every day. How  eree can be sure they are getting  enough vitamin C?  Answer: With the arrival of  summer, we have a wide variety  of fresh fruits and vegetables  available. Many of these are  rich in vitamin C. One serving-of  any of the following fruits or  vegetables will meet the recommended daily level for vitamin C:  cantaloupe, strawberries, watermelon, broccoli, brussel sprouts,  caluiflower, cabbage, green  pepper or a whole tomato.  Question: How can soybeans be  used?  Answer: Soybeans can be used to  increase the protein content of  food mixtures. In order to prepare the beans, they must be  soaked   overnight   in   three   to  four times as much water as there  are beans. One cup of beans will  expand to two and one-half cups  after cooking. To cook, bring the  beans to a slow boil in the water  in which they are soaked.  Reduce the heat and simmer  them until tender (about two  hours). If the beans have not  been soaked overnight, prepare  them in the following manner  before cooking. Cover the beans  with cold water. Bring to a boil  and simmer two minutes. Remove from the heat and let stand,  tightly covered, for one hour.  Recipes for soybean dishes can  be found in Recipes .for a Small  Planet by E. B. Ewald and Diet  for a Small Planet by F. M.

As soon as it is is  or harvested, there is some loss  of nutrients. Canned and frozen  vegetables are both acceptable  as vegetable choices. There is  more loss of some nutrients  during canning than during  freezing. . Many nutrients are  found in the canned food liquid.  Therefore it is important that this  liquid is used and not discarded.  Queskra: Can yogurt be used as a  substitute for meat?  Answer: Yogurt is not considered  to be a substitute for meat because it does not provide the  amounts oif certain nutrients  that would be found in a comparable serving of meat. Nutrients  found in meat include protein,  iron and thiamine. Nutrients  found in milk include protein,  calcium and riboflavin.  Question: Does butternut have  the same food value as skim milk?  Answer: Buttermilk has almost  the same food value as skim  milk with the following exceptions:  1. Skim milk has less that .1%  butterfat. Buttermilk* has .5%  tol.5%butterfat.  2. Skim milk must be fortified  with vitamins A and D. Buttermilk does not have to be fortified  with these vitamins and very  likely is not.  Therefore the main difference  between skim milk and buttermilk  are a slightly different level of  fat and differing amounts of the  vitamins A and D.

Answer.: Carrageenan is a food  additive which keeps the chocolate particles from separating  out and settling to the bottom of  the container.  Question: What is your opinion  on the use of protein powders by  athletes or young men trying to  improve taeir physiques?  Answer: The average Canadian  diet provides an overabundance  of protein - deficiences of this  nutrient are rare in North America. Protein which is taken in  excess of the body's requirement  for growth, maintenance and  repair is converted into energy  and either burned through activity or stored as fat. Excesses will  not improve endurance nor  enable the body to. become more  muscular. The athlete does need  extra calories, but protein foods  or powders are an expensive way  of providing these calories.  Question: I enjoy adding raw  mushrooms to salads as well  as using them in casseroles,  sauces, etc. Do they offer much  nutritional value?  Answer: As well as adding a  special flavour to many dishes;  mushrooms offer some of the B  vitamins including folic acid,  and they are also very low in  calories.  Question: Is it true that you can  increase the iron in your diet  by using cast-iron cook ware?  Answer: Yes, foods cooked in  cast-iron pots or frying pans can  absorb small amounts of iron,-  thus adding extra iron to the  diet. The widespread use of  aluminum, stainless steel, and  non-stick pans has almost eliminated this supply.  Question: I have heard that it  isn't wise to eat too much spinach, because it can interfere with  the way your body uses certain  nutrients. Is there any truth to  this?  Answer: Spinach contains a substance called oxalic acid, which  can bind with calcium, making it  less available to the body. Thus  although spinach contains a  fairly high level of calcium, it is  not considered a good calcium  source, because of the oxalic  acid. It is felt, however, that if  ah individual is eating other high  calcium foods during the day,  such as milk or milk products, the.  effects/ of the ssul_Wh are hot  sufficient-, to> .^fl_HH|,;iconcjjp  Spinach is aricWMMMe7ofvitaini!

First of all I hope you  have all had a good summer  and are all refreshed and rarin to  go for the Fall Session, which I  assure you is going to be a busy  one, so I ask for your co-operation  in all the events that are going to  take place. We have had and still  have a number of our members in  hospital during the recess but  I sincerely hope they are on the  way to full recovery by this time.  They are as follows: Mary Steel,  taking tests, Ida Dinsley, in  Intensive Care and Carl Fraser.  I think Carl is getting a set of  Monkey Glands installed so if you  see him swinging from the lights  don't be alarmed. Sorry to hear  that our dear friend Louise  Barnes lost her brother a couple  of weeks ago. We extend our con-  doloences to Louise in this her  time of trouble. First thing on the  Agenda is the trip to the P.N.E.  ..   and Grouse Mountain on August  |?$pI^(We^  "*';i subsidized ���'trip*to Bellingham,  date to be set. This should be in  September so would have to be  decided at our September  General Meeting. Third, date  to be set for our Fall Tea and  Bazaar, which 1 imagine will be  held some time in October.  Fourth, Carpet Bowling will  commence on September 7th, so  all you Carpet Bowlers get out for  this event. I have also got in mind  a plan for our First Anniversary  Celebration for the opening  of our hall for September 24th.  This will be for Seniors Only.  I have been in contact with our  good friend Emery Scott of  Sechelt Branch 86 and he is  quite willing to bring the Orchestra down to play his toe-tapping  music. We also have to discuss a  Christmas Lights trip to Vancouver,   seeing   that   we   didn't  ���iV  have one last year as we were too  busy with the goings on at the  Hall. Also to be discussed at  the meeting will be our New  Year's Ball. This will be my  last official function as your  President, so let's get out and  discuss all these matters at our  next General Meeting, which by  the way will be held, on account  of the Labour Day weekend, a  week later, on Monday, September 12th.

Every'1 July' and 'August ' those  visitors from near and far descend  upon our coast and fill the public  coffers to overflowing. I feel I  should be grateful to these  people, who are a major factor in  our local economy. Something  urges me to prostrate myself  and do obeisance to those camera  toting lords of commerce. But  alas, I cannot bring myself to do  it, for, every now "and then, I  am reminded that even these  princes of the dollar are fallible  and utterly human.

Ah,  a ihless-ed traveller, to whom I  was obligated to show all the  hospitality of home to. If only  I could figure out what he was  talking about.

Some dealers will  not stock these fish very often  because of their eating habits,  which are at times quite finicky.  These fish range in size from  one and three-quarters to three  and a half inches, with a body  form which is deep from the  dorsal ridge to the anus, but very  slender through the sides. They  have long curved pectoral fins  located just behind and a bit  below the eye. Their mouths are  located at the top forward section of their bodies, thus allowing  them easy access to their main  food which is flies.  One bad habit these fish possess is that of flight, they are  renowned for their ability to jump  through a crack as small as a  quarter of an inch in the canopy  cover. In the wild a Hatchet  Fish can glide from ten to fifteen  feet.  The   home   waters   for   the  Hatchet    Fishes    range    from  Panama to the Rio de la Plata in  Argentina.    All of the Hatchet  Fishes  are  non-aggressive   and  they will eat flake foods, but will  not fair well on just that diet.   It  is best to keep these fish in small  schools and if possible feed them  live foods which float, such as  mosquitoes, small house flies, or  the   wingless   variety   of   fruit  fly.     Their  water  temperature  can   range   between   73   to   86  degrees    F.,    with   the    water  slightly acid and soft.   The best  type of tank should be long and  narrow. Some Hatchet Fish have  been bred in captivity but very  seldom and the reports are vague.  No, son that's not Wyat Earp.

A Freethinker's Pulpit  The views expressed In this  column are not necessarily those  of the Coast News,  by Andy Randall ,.   :.,i^^>   .<'���;?-  Tguess you wouldn't know who  was the first "Freethinker"?  No, I'm not talking now of Socrates, or Confucius, or some other  philosopher. Well they had this  person nailed up on some heavy  timbers for HIS freethinking.  And many of His followers, for  their freethinking, met an untimely end.  The stream of freethought  became a river and spread, and  spread, until the known world,  heard a great deal about it. But,  as so often has happened in the  history, of Christianity, some  eager beavers dammed (1 almost  said damned) the river with their  edicts, dogmas, doctrines and  other ideas they worked at, until  barely a trickle of what their  normal Master had taught filtered through. They-sorted out  many stories of the Gospels,  chose four, we have them, and  letters of an evangelist, Paul,  and others, aad declared them  sacred.  Books, (scrolls) of the ancient  and modern Jewish scriptures  had already been catalogued,  and listed, into what is now called  The Old Testament. So a great  library of scrolls became known  as The Holy Bible, simply because those early Christians ves-  ted in authority by themselves i  or as some claim, by God, declared it so to be. :  . "Okay. Go on," the man says.  So we have two schools of thought  on the true nature of Biblos - the  bible - Greek for a library of  books. Tradition says it is so  totally inspired by God that it is  a sin to take away one word. To  be without that conviction that  it is absolute truth and absolute  authority, is to be without faith.  Some traditionalists will go so  far as to pall ,you ^without that  conviction) a no-no; anti-Christ;  heretic, you may have heard  other accusations.  The Freethinking school-person says, '1 respect the other  guy for his opinions but I too  have a right to express my ideas  on these things. I feel I do not  have to be subject to that awesome feeling that I must accept  the premise that because it is  called The Holy Bible it is so.  God gave me a mind to think,  and observe, and filter out, and  make my own decisions. Gone  are the days when some Pope,  or priest, or bishop, or preaching  minister could make me quail  with dire pronouncements of  hell, and purgatory if I wouldn't  do, or believe,.what he ordered  me to.'  Of course the bible is inspired,  so is every great book in literature, and majestic musical composition, and work of art, or  sculpture. Yes men were inspired  by thoughts of divinity to write  about God. So let us say, as we  think, it is man's book about  God. Not God's Holy Word to  Man.  When we get that truth through  our heads then we can begin to  better understand ~e countless  contradictions, tsffl mistakes  fight there in the bible. Then we  can consider, .as we should, that  most of the Old Testament is  unadulterated Hebrew history,  with the wildest extravagant  claims isf-their victorijf. over the  heathens, and that there are  passages of that toot .covertly  sought after by mischievous  youngsters 'we did it too' that I  wouldn't dare repeat, in front of.  my mother even today.  Yet they still will bible-thump  to you and' all-concerned that,  every x:hild. and adult' should  know and learn the Whole Bible.  I really have wondered if they  are all speaking the truth when  they say they have read, studied,  and now do know their bible?  You do not have to take my  word for it. Ronald Goldman,  in his book on The Basis for!  Developmental Religious Education writes:  'It is written (the Bible) by  adults for adults and is plainly  not a children's book. Most  adults do not understand their  bible.'  No. We Freethinkers have  emerged from the traditional -  can I say - brainwashing, that  proved so devastatingly effective  for Catholic teaching, communistic propaganda, and some others.  We intend to stay that way.  The Neighbourhood ��� Watch  Project is now in the Gibsons  area. Homes within the boundaries of the Village of Gibsons have  been marked to a great extent,  and homes in the area from  Roberts ' Creek to Gibsons are  also being worked on at the moment. The Neighbourhood Watch  project has received tremendous  co-operation from all three local  Lions Clubs, and. presently,  volunteers from the Gibsons  Lions are working on the project;  In the eight weeks that the program has been in operation,'  about 2300 homes have been  visited. In about sixty percent  ofthe cases, the homes were engraved. Very few people have  out and out refused to have their  home engraved, but a number of  people have not been home when  the Neighbourhood Watch workers came to their door. Any  people who missed having their  home engraved can get in touch  with the local RCMP detachments  to arrange to receive an engraver.  It would also be greatly appreciated if any people who have had  an engraver for more than a  week could either phone the  RCMP (885-2266 or 886-2245) to  arrange to have .their engraver  picked up, or drop the .engraver  off at the detachment. Anyone  who still has an engraver in the  Pender Harbour area can leave  their engraver at the Madeira  Park Liquor  Store.

"An Editor's  opinion is but the opinion of one  man and will be limited in value  by that man's knowledge of  several diverse areas of interest  and his experience generally" -  your words are so true!  Now to reply to Mrs. Olsen's  (Coast News, Aug. 23) request to  have a statement on Grantham's  water. I have a written statement  received August 16 from Garibaldi Health Unit that our water is  satisfactory. It was also satisfactory at the time of the August  13 meeting at Granthams Landing  and with permission from the  local Water Inspector, Coast  Garibaldi Health Unit, was so  stated at that meeting.  To the people who are worried  about fighting Fire. Keeping in  mind that we must depend on  a Voluntary Fire Department -  we can fight fire as well as other  small communities. With the proposed 25,000 gallon tank in place  (and it would be there now if instructions of the 1976 General  Meeting had been carried out by  the Trustees) - with upgrading of  some existing lines of pipe over  the next year or two - we can  have a water system as good as  anything the Regional Board can  provide. We would always have  water in our pipes (See letter  Roberts Creek, Aug. 23) from a  spring that bubbles up cold and  clear, that is not polluted and  never runs dry.  Mrs. J. Park  Trustee ���  Voted to the board, August 1977.  Editor's Note:  Not a new policy.  Merely a clear statement of an  old.  Amused  Editor:  I was amused by Edna West's  "Up with Democracy" letter to  your paper. Miss West's idea of  democracy differs greatly from  mine, when she and ethers, by  their rudeness, tried to deny our  invited guests die right to be  heard at the Granthams Landing  meeting August 13. Mr. Dixon  and Mr. Mulligan were invited  by our ELECTED trustees to  address the meeting. They tried  to explain the cost of bringing  regional water toGanthams. As  it was difficult to hear them,  due to the boorish behaviour of  a few people, I have ascertained  the following facts:  1. The connection charge will  be nil. There is a connection  charge of $250.00for a new house  after Regional water is in, but  none for existing houses.  2. The water pipe from property  line to. house - approximately  thirty cents per foot. Pressure  reducer - $22.00.  3. Depth of water ppe - eighteen  inches.  We are not given an official  answer to the question of how  much it will cost to stay with  Granthams water system. We do  not know the total cost of up  grading our obsolete water system. Regional water is coming to  Upper Granthams and North  Road regardless.  I hope the residents of Granthams Landing wffl take the time  to check out these facts for themselves, instead of listening to  the baseless, sometimes ridiculous rumors that are c imitating.  We know what our water rates  would be with regbnal. Do we  with Granthams?  Miss West's 'democracy' apparently does not include the  view "I may not agree with what  you have to say but, I will defend  to the death your right to say it."  corded.

While cities such as Vancouver  have long since made a point of  decentralizing their library services into many-small community libraries, we on the Sunshine  Coast are being asked to close  the doors of our local libraries  so that one "central" building  can be located at Sechelt.  If such is not the intent of the  questionnaire, then it has completely deceived many taxpayers,  for I cannot find one who does  not see this as its purpose.  It would seem, in fact, that the  same subtle hand is at work as  is being used to subvert our taxpayers to give our water resources to regional district land developers and "community"  "planners". Fill the honest,  unsuspecting citizen with distortions of the truth. Pander  specious seemingly honest concerns for the poor, neglected  citizen. Explain how much the  deprived reader is missing. Suggest that minimum library service should include such items as  recreational resources! centers of  information, community awareness? telephone reference!  special business and legal departments!?  What the regional district is  suggesting is that, should these  and many other suggested  "centers" ind "departments"  be provided by a central library,  we should no longer need to  depend on our parks, playgrounds, ice rinks, swimming  pools, tennis courts, and other  recreational facilities. We could  become informed, a quality we  now obviously lack. We could  be made aware of the communities which the regional district  is doing its utmost to destroy.  We could turn to our central  library rather than to B.C. Tel  with our phone problems. And  we could find there also professional aid in the very specialized  and ''ethically sensitive fields"Wi'  business and law.  Gracious! Considering what  these services cost now, let's by  all means obliterate them all  and get them holus bolus at one  central place practically free of  charge at a library, yet!  Gibsons and district residents  were provided their first public  libary building by the Kiwanis  international in, 1954. Since that  time, through volunteer librarians  and the support of the Municipal  Council, it has steadily grown until it now enjoys quite modern  quarters. Through the Public  Library Commission, the Provincial Health Service, and volun-  I TED HUME!  ��� ���  ' SERVICES  teer workers, it creates and circulates assistance to shut-ins  and cassettes to blind residents.  Readers who live too far away to  walk to the community library  can spend up to two hours there  some days by means of a special  bus service.  There are four other community libraries along the Sunshine  Coast, in addition .to a library  facility in each school. Citizens  of all our communities are provided with - and pay for - quite  a broad base of library services.  A geographic center is not  necessarily a real center of any  sort. Junior and senior citizens  now being served by their five  communities would find a "central" library located in any one of  these localities beyond reach to  all but those of the favored  "central" village.  Powell River, the community  with which we are compared,  has at least 20,000 of its 25,000  residents within a fairly compact  area at a real population center.  We are scattered along 'sixty  miles of coastline, with a central  village only half as large as one  located fifteen miles away.  The regional district questionnaire goes to great lengths to  discuss per capita library costs,  without ever coming to grips with  what the capital and operational  costs of a "central", library would  amount to.  During the fiscal year of 1976,  this regional district paid out  $340,000 in personal disburse-'  ments. Anyone who feels that  we should give up our community  libraries with their "severe budgetary restrictions" in favor of  one large expensive building,  with full-time paid staff, would  discover the financial and social  costs of such an anachronism all  too late.  If the regional district wishes  to help its reading public, let  it divvy some of its generous  budget - including the costs of  producing and circulating its  invidious questionnaire - to community libraries, where the  monies could produce real  benefits.  Lester R. Peterson  Dollar  AUTHORIZED  ��sso  Editor:  The Canadian dollar has sunk  to new lows in value. "The Wall  Street Journal" says: "Canada  isn't doing so well. Its economy  has been tangled up by a government effort to apply compulsory  wage and price controls for nearly  two years. The experiment has  been marked by strikes and slow  growth in production. Foreign  direct investment has dried up.  And inflation, which those wage  and price controls were supposed  to cure, is currently at a higher  rate than in the U.S. ...Surely he  (Mr. Trudeau) must be starting  to have some doubts about that  theory which seems to beguile  so many national leaders, that a  weak currency yields trade benefits. The weakness in the Canadian currency is quickly translated into Canadian inflation,  which means that it generates  no increased propensity for  Canadians to spend their money  at home.

That is the voice of world  capitalism, the Wall Street  Journal. Socialists would argue  that the description is correct,  but their simplified cure, a return  to''pure"free' enterprise," is1 impossible. It never existed and  doesn't exist now.  However, if the real purpose  of Liberal-Conservative plans for  wage and price controls was to  transfer income from working  people to company profits, a  glance at the business pages  would show that the program  has succeeded in turning Robin  Hood upside down.

The recent decision of the  Ranger Commission in Australia  not to permit mining of its uranium reserves (approximately  25% of free world reserves) has  placed additional emphasis upon  uranium development in B.C.  Uranium mining stands apart  from other forms of mining in  terms of the longevity of the environmental hazard and extremely small quantity of pollutant  necessary to cause health effects.  A decision affecting hundreds  of future generations of B.C.  residents is being taken at present. Our organization and  other environmental groups in  B.C. are requesting a full judicial  enquiry into uranium mining as  is presently underway in Saskatchewan (The Cluff Lake Enquiry), before embarking on this  crucial step.  We request your help in informing the public on this important issue. We would be pleased  to provide what further information you might require.

M.  land,Minister of Forests, is  appearing in many B.C. newspapers accompanied by an  enlarged photo of a.- hideous  spruce budworm. May I reply?  The Minister narrows the  problem down to two choices.  Either, he says, we let nature take  its course with budworm, bark  beetle, and fires .which destroy  hundreds of thousands of acres  of B.C. forest along ' with the  economy of the forest industry;  or we accept "protection" as  prescribed by his Departmental  mandarins. Since this ."protection" amounts to aerial bombardment of chemical sprays likely  to decimate birdlife along with  other natural enemies of the  budworm, it is hard, within  the parameters set by the Minister, to decide which would be  the worst.  Go out and see what's happening to the forests when nature  takes its uninterrupted course,  says the minister to his critics.  But could the good minister deny  that nature's excesses in the  Fraser Canyon and in Lillooet and  Pemberton were not-brought on,  or inensified, by chemical or  other upset to natural order,  laid on previously by 'forest  management'? For some time  now our forests have been subjected to policies which seek  to minimize deciduous growth  so as to quickly promote the  commercially viable evergreen  stands. This can be effected by  slashing or with herbicides  sprayed from above. The point  is that it is monoculture, not of  nature's choice. Mono-culture  begets mono-parasites, for it  becomes   easier   for   a 'single  CAMpbell's  FAMILY  SHOES  and  LEATHER GOODS  RENOVATION  SALE  SAVINGS UP TO 50%  "IN THE HEART OF DOWNTOWN SECHELT"  Your friendly neighbourhood drop-off point  for Coast News Box 381 sechelt, B.C.

Why  the deaf ear to  alternate  solutions such as put forward by  Pestology    Studies    at    Simon  Fraser University? These at least  minimized   the   chemical   outpourings and would have introduced to the budworm some of  its own natural enemies.  Could it be there are heavy  promotional campaigns being  conducted behind the scenes?  Could there be huge stockpiles  of embarrassing chemicals on  hand waiting to be used up,  are there, ongoing committments  to purchase more? As the U.S.  Environmental Protection Agency  clamps down on the uses of  pesticides and herbicides in the  land of their manufacture, must  new markets not be forged  abroad, in Canada, in Mexico,  in the banana republics? It  would make sense, and the sales  pitch must be very effective,  judging from a debate now raging  in Powell River with some people  whose actions would indicate  that dandelion-free playgrounds  come ahead of possible risks to  lives and health of children using  them!  But back to the forests of the  Fraser Canyon. Pinkerton's  men must have breathed a  clean sigh of relief when the spray  program was called off there,  for had not they been assigned to  stand guard below to keep, any  protesters a safe distance back? ;  Yes, B.C. has parasites, some  in the woodwork, some with  briefcases. It is possible that  Mr. Waterland's advisors could  benefit if colleage Mr. Bill  Vander Zalm were free to give  a few lessons, for has he not.  shown great dexterity in coping  with parasites after a free lunch?  It's a matter of identification.  The budworm pictures are quite  revealing, we should have no  problem recognising them in  future. Now if the media will  publish pictures of parasites  in sheep's clothing we shall  have progressed another step of  the way to wisdom.  " 7-... :: ' .':"'��� ..:-'.;:o.-.-.Tic; -,���./.*<,;t?  Martin Rossander  Powell River.  Kiwanis  Editor:  I am a visitor to Gibsons and  have had occasion to visit the  Kiwanis Senior Citizen Village -  both during the day and in the  evening. This project was no  doubt 'an anxiously awaited one  and I am told that many Kiwanis ���  members deserve the credit  for its completion. However,  as I happen to have been visiting  other Kiwanis projects in West  Vancouver and North Vancouver  I was very disappointed to see  tiie state ofthe grounds surrounding this one. The only redeeming features were the individual  gardens of the residents themselves. I was astonished to discover there was no resident  caretaker. I should say that I  understand some individual  Kiwanians have been very good  on occasion but nowhere have I  encountered such a complex  without a caretaker. An economy  measure?  I mentioned visiting during the  evening specifically as despite the  street lights surrounding the  parking area they are net  haven't been on. Could it be  possible that this black-out  around a seniors' residence is  yet another economy measure?  I find that even harder to believe  than the fact that residents and  guests alike were required to  stumble around in the dark.  Although I am not certain  where the fault lies, surely the  worthwhile efforts expended in  establishing this complex, and  more importantly the seniors  themselves, deserve better  follow-up, i.e. maintenance and  light!  We enjoyed our stay here and  your Sea Cavalcade very much  but felt obliged to pass on my  comments. I am sending a copy  of this letter to your MLA Don  Lockstead.  (Mrs.) S. Beachkowski.  Protest  Editor:  I would like to make the people  of the Sunshine Coast aware of  the Federal Government's closing  of Wickaninnish Inn in a few short  weeks. To those who are not  familiar with where and what  Wickaninnish is, it's a beautiful  Inn located near Torino on the  west coast of Vancouver Island.  It is a source of pleasure to old  and young alike, and has been  for many, many years. When  Pacific Rim was first set up,  there was to be no commercial  development in the park. But  this is ridiculous since all other  national parks have more than  their share of commercial enterprises. Wickaninnish was there  long before the Federal Government took over.  Recently, there was a letter  of protest in one of the Vancouver  papers. I, and many other people  I've talked to, feel the same way  as Marjorie Stewart who wrote  that letter. I've been in contact  with her since, asking what we  could do to help make the government reconsider.. Following are  exerpts from her letter to me:  The best way for you and anyone to help is to write to the  Honourable Warren Allmand,  who is the minister in charge of  this, as you.can see. I agree with  you that the government is supposed to do what the majority  ofthe people want, but if we don't  tell them, they will never know,  so we have to make as . many  wiles as possible. If you can get  anyone else toWrite/please do7so.  So, in conclusion, I urge anyone  who is at all concerned, to write  to Allmand a letter of protest:  From everyone I've talked to,  not one person condoned, the  closing of this Inn.   The Federal  Government will just have to  listen 1 After all, are we not  supposed to have a "people's"  government?

Resource industries employ less workers  per dollar of investment, and  with the unprocessed raw materials we export our jobs.  Finally, the Foreign Investment Review Act is a farce and  a sham which does not slow down  the accelerating American takeover of what was left of Canada's  economy. Branch plants are the  first to be shut down. As much as  possible, research and administration will be transferred to  headquarters in the U.S.A. There  go more jobs.  Are the Liberals serious?.  Richard von Fuchs  115 13th St.  Courtenay, B.C.  Information  Today on the radio news I  heard that the Liberal government wants to encourage the  private sector of the economy to  create more jobs.  It's like watching a 35 year  old clutching a teddy bear. That  old magic won't work so well as  it might have in the past.  The finest minds in North  America are at work applying  science to industry to cut down  the labour involved in both manufacturing and services. Doesn't  the government realize that the  result of, all this brain power  has to be more production with  less employment?  - Furthermore three government  policies have encouraged industry  to cut employment.  New machines can be written  off with accelerated depreciation.  That means you and I pay to provide a tax subsidy to industry to  replace ourselves with machines.  In the international arena this  same government is making  agreements with Japan and the  Common Market countries that  Canada will specialize in. expor- '  Editor:  Reading your letters from the  Guess. Where mailbag, on .page.  12 of the August 23rd 1977 issue  of the Coast News.    Mrs. Ruth  Ronning, RR #1, Sechelt, B.C. is  asking about the little old building    opposite    Wakefield    Inn.  Wakefield In was built as a residence for the  Provincial  Police  officer. It was called at that time  just plain Wakefield.   The police  officer Major Douglas Sutherland  had jurisdiction over the whole of  the Sechelt Peninsula from Sea-;  side   Park  which   is   now   Port  Mellon to Earls Cove and  Egmont.   This was in 1936 and the  writer was appointed Magistrate.  in 1937 and had jurisdiction over  the same territory.  The   little   building  was   the ,  office ofthe police officer and was  also used as the jail having a  regular steel cell inside the building.    I used to go to the office  and ask for various official forms  from the Secretary Miss Betty  Youngston.      1939  the   Second  World War started  and  Major  Sutherland was called to serve  with the Argyle and Sutherland  Highlanders and left for service  with   his   regiment.       Another  Provincial Police officer arrived  and made his office in one of the  cottages in the Orchard cottages  and moved the steel jail cell to  this   office   in   the   Village   of  Sechelt.   The steel jail cell was  there for several years and then  moved to the large police office  on Cowrie Street and was dismantled when the large police  station was opened by the R.C.M.  Police who took over the duties  of police work from the Provincial  Police.  The small building opposite  the Wakefield Inn is still there  and will probably be moved one  of these days. Wakefield was  eventually sold and made a beer  parlour and then called Wakefield Inn and the first owner as  a beer parlor was Charles Reda  who later sold to George Wrad-  robe who operated the Inn for  quite a long time. It has been  sold many times since.  W.J. Mayne  Box 163, Sechelt  Grateful  Editor:  Have you ever watched a sunset from behjnd a prison wall?

Politics in Pender Harbour, as  in many places, has long been  divided between those^fab would  like to make it their home and  those who would Ike it to make  their fortune.  The former ate far more  numerous but tie latter are far  more dedicated.  In preparing the fast draft  of the Offical Pender Harbour  Community Plan it was clear, the  fortune-huntershave nailed down  all the key points.  The first overall goal of the  plan is "to preserve the natural  character of the. area and maintain a sense of ruralcommumty".  This is of course what householders want and there is a  chance many have just read this  far and laid the plan down reassured. This would leave them  with a completely false impression indeed because the next  thing they would have read if  they'd gone on wouH be a series  of proposals to aboish the rural  zone with its 49-acre minimum  lot size, to encourage residential  subdivisions with bts less than  a half-acre in see, to hold the  door open to condominiums and  "cluster developments", and to  encourage the growth of marinas  on the waterfront.  If there is a plan of action more  likely to destroy any rural com  munity's sense of rural community faster than encouraging high-  density subdivisions, condominiums and "dister developments", it would be difficult to  imagine it.  The fact is -that the plan as  presently constituted is sailing  under fab? colours. To be Honest  it should read that its overall  goal, rather than to preserve  the existing community, is to  destroy the existing community  and put in its plaoe a crowded  suburban-type residential and  recreational complex like Deep  Cove, Lions Bay, Steveston or  Edmonds, Washington. This is  the type of com muni y that occurs  when an area lays itself open to  development pres aire from a  nearby metropolis, and the Pender plan in first draft was the  most development-boosting plan  to appear so far in the Sunshine  Coast region.  The Lasqueti Island Community Plan endorses a minimum  lot size of ten acres, completely  banishes marinas exept in specified areas and provides that  houses on the watefront be built  no closer than 300 feet apart.  The Gambier Island Plan states  as its goal something quite similar to Pender Harbour's: "topre:  serve and enhance the rural  character and peacefulness of  the Island, and to protect its  natural beauty and views." But  they mean what they say - no  GRANTHAMS LANDING  IMPROVEMENT DISTRICT  GENERAL  MEETING  SEPT. 17th  7:30 p.m.  COMMUNITY HALL  MICK ALVARO  BULLDOZING  ft Stump Disposal  ��� Land Clearing  * Road Building  HOURLY RATEorCONTRACT  886-9803  car ferry, no road expansion,  no marinas, no commercial  activities and average lot sizes of  4.9 acres and 9.2 acres.  One might argue that these  plans come from areas too remote  and underpopulated to be compared with Pender Harbour, but  studying them is still revealing  as to just how mudi freedom to  choose community density is  being offered us in the form of  community plans. We are given  a chance to define progress in  our own terms - and many communities are making the most of  it.  Bowen Island is certainly no  less under pressue to develop  than the Sechelt Peninsula. It  is within commuting distance of  Vancouver, it is already partially  built up and big development  money is heavily invested there.  Nevertheless the community  plan recently completed on Bowen comes down flatly on the  side of "preserving the status-  quo", that is, putting the brakes  on real estate devebpment while  enshrining the lifestyle of the  existing community. Even in  core areas there is a hard and  fast minimum lot size of one acre.  Moving closer to home, the  first draft of the Roberts Creek  Plan seems to fall in line with  the Bowen Plan, emphasizing  existing community values and  strengthening rather than abolishing the 5-aae minimum established under fie Regional  District zoning byJaws. Even  in Sechelt, community planners  propose to limit higher density  housing to "portions of the  Sechelt Isthmus only", exclude  apartments and retain the 4.9-  acre minimum over large parts  of the plan area.  In presenting the first draft  of the Pender Harbour Community Plan planner Robyn Addison  noted that in aboishing the rural  4.9-acre zone completely and  putting in its place an average lot  size of .49 acres with no hard and  fast minimum at all, the Planning  Committee had opened the area  up to a theoretical population pf  77,000 people. Bushessman Oili  Sladey, who knows whereof he  speaks when it comes to local  land development, assured Ms.  Addison that the amount of  unusable land would probably  limit real population to half that,  but it still leaves us looking at  something   over  35,000.

Pender Harbour Clinic  Editor:  Pender Harbour residents pay  a very large portion of the taxes  on the hospital at Sechelt - so,  how is it we have to pay an  additional tax of $7,000 a year for  the Pender Harbour doctor to get  cross coverage for weekends  only?  Why haven't we got equal  rights with each working doctor  taking one night of duty on rotation at the hospital?  Apparently the doctors get  fee for service for looking at  the patients so they are not  losing by looking at Pender  Harbour patients.  If we can't have equal privileges with the Sechelt doctors why  don't we call for another referendum and vote on the following:  "We are in favour of paying no  taxes toward St. Mary's Hospital unless the Pender Harbour  and District doctor is given his  equal shift and privileges at the  hospital without pay-off money  from our district."  Wasn't Pender Harbour  democratic and helped vote the  hospital    move    from    Pender  Harbour to Sechelt?  Now the Sechelt doctors want  $7,000 each year for cross coverage or $18,000 for full every day  cross coverage. Stupid, wan't  it? And grateful, aren't they?  These are some of the same  doctors who inspired the move.  Now they laugh.  Gusty Thomas,  Pender Harbour.  Marina ends  Hugh Carter, owno- of Sakinaw  Lake Marina, phoned the Coast  News last week to announce that  effective Labour D%r the marina  will be closing permanently.  Carter cited rezoning difficulties  with the regional board as the  reason for the closue.  Carter had approached the  regional board with a request  that he have a foty-acre piece  of land rezored for tie expansion  of his facilities. Ihe regional  board felt that this was too much  and were willing to rezone only  approximately twelve acres.

Does the pro-  development lobby on the Planning Committee really believe  this would be a good way to  preserve our "sense of rural  community"?  Clearly the community density  projected in the first draft of  the plan is grossly happropriate.  This was evident when Ms.  Addison first brought the matter  up and that first meeting was  given to understand the subject  of density was to be thoroughly  re-considered. Those members  of the plan commit ee who tend  to argue on the side, of preserving the high quality of life  in Pender Harbour, Art and Mary  Joss, Joe Harrison and Jim  Causey, sought to have the density matter re-worked bit in spite  of their effort ���> important  changes have been made as the  plan comes up tosecondreading.  ��� It can be said of course that  making provisionfor high density  does not necessarity create high  density - makkig spaces for 30  thousand people doesn't mean  the developers and real estate  salesmen are gohgto find 30,000  buyers to take them up. What it  does mean however is that developers will have a free hand  to bring in as many as they can  find. With the Gulf Islands all  under the lOecre freeze, the  lower mainland under the agricultural freeze and the rest of  the Sunshine Coastunder stricter  density control, Pender Harbour  would become something of a  developer's haven, and coupled  with its great natural attractiveness the place would find itself  under terrific pressure.  This might prove a boon to  the fortune-seekers but to the  people who value the area as  a place to live it would be a  disaster. There is time to prevent it, but to do so the householders are going to ha\e to pick  up some of the dedication and  organization of tie fortune-  seekers ' and start timing up at  planning meetings.

FEDERAL  BUSINESS  DEVELOPMENT BANK  ID  145 West 15th Street,  North Vancouver, B. C. 980-6571  Opening new doors to small business.  Lockstead reports from Legislature  Municipal Affairs: During the  summer sitting of the legislature  the Social Credit Minister of  Municipal Affairs, the Honour-  . able Hugh Curtis, has sought to  alter the role of the local government. The Islands Trust is now  virtually under the direct control  of Victoria, and changes to the  Municipal Act will drastically  shift power away from the local  level (i.e. Regional Boards) to  Victoria (the Department of  Municipal Affairs). I disagree  with this centralizing of power in  Victoria for one basic and simple  reason. I believe that local  people and their directly elected '  officials are more responsive to  local needs than is a larger, less  responsible bureaucracy in Victoria.  Presently   the   Powell   River  Regional District is made up of(  seven elected officials who have  hired a full time secretary,  treasurer, planner and planning  assistant. These people are responsible for a great variety of  local community affairs such as  hospital, zoning, subdivision  applications, and general regional  planning. All modern growing  communities need these services  although to be sure they do at  times exasperate certain individuals whose personal desires conflict with the aims of the entire  community. Some individual  toes are stepped on.  The point of all this boils down  to: If you had a complaint about  subdivision, zoning, or some  problem to do with land or buildings, would you rather deal with  a regional board in your own area,  GIBSONS  Building Supplies  886-8141  Our Sale  is Still On  or the Department of Municipal  Affairs and a minister in Victoria?  The Social Credit government  does not believe that local people  and their elected officials are intelligent, responsible and far  sighted enough to deal with local  problems. I cannot agree with  this philosophy.  ��� ��� C-  Coast News, August 30,1977.  Going through the Change of Light?

Editor's Note: An account of  "The Gumboot Navy" appears  in the Seventh Issue of the -Raincoast Chronicles, now available!  The veterans of the Fishermen's Reserve of the .Royal  Canadian Navy (World Yfax II)  are holding a reunion on Saturday  October 1st in the Drill ifiall of  HMCS Discovery, Vancouver.  This will be a buffet dinner  followed by dancing and:7^spli-:  cing the main brace".      XX[-  This Reserve was organized  shortly before the laJSt'" war.  Commander James McCUllough,  R.C.N., Officer Commanding  Auxiliary Vessels, Pacific^Coast,  put it this way: "On this coast  there are many reaches'.'; not  properly charted and the" inlets  are tricky and treacherous and  this calls for, not deep sea men  of the merchant marine type,  but fishermen and towboat men.  We don't need boats as much as  we need experienced 'trien."  However, both were recruited;  and where did the boats come  from? ^%:' '  Well, in World War I, ti��i|U;S.  Coast Guard built speciall'Sub-  marine-chasers to guard ajjpihst  enemy submarine activity."; U.S.  Submarine    Chaser    #34l7>?was  typical.      90'   long,   narrow  of  beam, she was built of well-aged  yellow cedar and so strottjp^ reinforced  at the  fo'c'sIelSeams  that she could weather anyjof the  40 foot seas of a typical; Pacific  sou'easter with ease.   When the  war was over she and her/sister  ships were sold as surplus.  When the Volstead Act became  law in the U. S. many Canadians  became very concerned Over the  plight of their thirsty American  cousins. These surplus- subchasers were quickly snapped up  and converted to "rum-ninbers".  U.S. Submarine-Chaser #3|jlwas  now the "Marauder" (combining  Maureen and Audrey).    'pX..  It was no secret that Japan had  many of its Naval Reservists well  scattered throughout the��~B.C.  fishing industry in the .yl930's.  On many an occasion (usually  when under the influenced*", their  favourite rice water, sake,~>some  boasted that Japan would one day  invade this country and they,  the reservists, would be taking  an active part in this. It is also  well-known that in these times  once could buy B.C. Coast marine  charts, printed in Japan, that  Were considered superior in  accuracy to British Admiralty  charts.  Because of this and because  the Royal Canadian Navy could  ill afford to spare any ships to  defend the Pacific (their committment to Atlantic convoys  was so heavy in the early war  yeafirs) a Naval Reserve was  formed consisting of rnen who  had at least three years shipping  experience (fishing, tow-boating,  etc.). And the ships used? The  wheel went full circle now. The  flipst. sea-worthy vessels were  these original Sub-chasers-rum  runners-fish packers for the most  piart, and the ex-rum runners  (at one time, the hunted) that  crewed these packers now became the hunters. U.S. Sub-  Chaser #341 was now HMCS  Marauder and her owner, Duncan  Sim, a Navy Officer.  hi 1939 they were called to  active duty as a regular branch  of the Navy for the duration of  hostilities. Besides patrol work  they regularly 'swept' the entrances to coastal ports every morning  for possible mines planted by  enemy submarines, or were  'Examination Vessels at strategic  points on the coast.  ;7"Men of steel in ships of  Wbod," said Commander Mc-  Cullough. "They can navigate  this coast with their eyes shut.  No deep-water man could tackle  it;-he would hesitate to venture,  even in daylight, between the  rocks and the reefs which these  men take in the dark. Also they  know everyone on the coast,  every boat, and little escapes  their vigilance. They check reports of radio interference which  might imply illegal wireless sets.  They regularly inspect abandoned  coastal mines suspected of being  used or developed as potential  enemy submarine bases."

These  windmills pictured were built  by my late husband, Charles  Muller, who passed away last  September.  The windmill and boats in the  picture are on top of the archway leading into our front yard.  The other windmill and sail boat  is on top of an imitation light  house and was at the Salvation  Army Camp at Langdale before  we moved here.
