 &\ _,-��!>_���  W:"iTO -*  &ar.2-f  ������  Sunshine  ''"7N  Published at Gibsons, B.C.  15* per copy on newsstands  Serving the Sunshine Coast since 1945  A'.*  Volume 30, Number 33.  Coast News, August 16,1977  Granthams wants  water referendum  "I'd rather see you go to referendum, myself. This way is  just pitting neighbour against neighbour." The words were  those of Area "F" Director Bernie Mulligan as he addressed  7 a meeting of Granthams residents under the auspices of the  Granthams Landing Improvement District held last Saturday,  August 13th in the Granthams Landing Community Hall. Also  present from the Regional Board were Ed Johnson, Regional  Director for Area "E" and a Hopkins resident, Gordon Dixon,  ���/Works Superintendent for the Regional Board.  At issue in the often stormy meeting was the controversial  water question. In April.of this year the executive of the  Granthams Landing Improvement District had invited the Regional Board to take Over the Granthams Landing water system.  Many residents of Granthams objected to this invitation and  felt that the meeting at which the close vote to join the Regional  water system had been taken had been inadequately publicized  and there were further contentions made at the August 13th  meeting that there had been voting irregularities at the April  meeting.  ������=&  Chairman Mrs. A. White  opened the meeting by reading  'a letter from the Regional Board  assuring the residents of the  Granthams area that there was no  wish on the part of the Regional  " Board to take over the land  which housed the present Granthams Water System. The Regional Board agreed to the Granthams Landing Improvement  District's wish to retain the  land, since the Regional Board  has no need for it in any water  tie-in.  It was Mrs. White's intention  after the reading of the Regional  Board letter to invite Regional  Director Mulligan to address the  meeting and explain with Works  Superintendent Dixon's assistance what the Regional Board  could offer by way of an improved  water system to the area. This  intention, however was set aside  by a motion from the floor, made  by Miss, Edna West, that the  question of Granthams joining  the Regional Board should go to  Water System was of no concern  to the Regional Board but a  matter for the people of Granthams to resolve.  At the beginning of their presentations both Mulligan and  Works Superintendent Dixon  had to endure constant heckling  and accusations of lying but  the meeting gradually settled  down and eventually intelligent,  concerned questions were being  asked and the answers listened  to. .  Among the main points made  by the Regional Board people  was the question of fire protection. It was pointed out that  the Fire Underwriters Association  recommended a water pressure  of 400 gallons per minute for  residential areas. The pressure  in the Granthams area, as outlined in a letter.from Assistant  Fire Chief Carl Horner of the  Gibsons Volunteer Fire Department, Was given as 55 gallons  per minute at the top of the  referendum. .-�� 1We> are not "here ^ Granthams hill and SS.gallons.at  to listen to any  guests,'"  said    the bottom ofthe hill..   - .  Miss West."  After an intense procedural  wrangle the motion to go to referendum was made by Mrs.  Turnbull and seconded by Miss  Scott. The heat produced by the  procedural wrangle induced  Regional Director Mulligan to  make his remarks about the desirability of referendum when he  finally was allowed to fake the  floor to explain the Regional  Board's position.  Mulligan  In his address to the meeting  Mulligan emphasized that the  Regional Board had entered into  discussions of providing the  water system for Granthams only  after being invited to do so by  the Granthams Landing Improvement District. Any dispute within  the membership of the district  of the legality of the meeting  which had arrived at the vote to  tie-in with the Regional District  Doefish tickets  selling well  Tickets are selling briskly for the first ever Dogfish Derby, to be held  In Gibsons on Saturday,' August 20th, 1977. The novel idea has apparently caught the fancy of the local people In this, its inaugural run.  The top prize of $1,000 for the largest dogfish caught, the numerous  prizes for hidden weights and the booby prize for the largest salmon  Inadvertently caught, have combined to stir up local interest - that plus  the often-expressed opinion that the more of the troublesome dogfish  taken from local waters the better for all concerned.  The ease with which dogfish can be caught and the number of hidden  prizes being offered ensures that everyone that puts a line in the water  on August 20th stands a fair chance of getting a prize. Even if prizes  are not forthcoming it is almost certain that everyone entered will  have an enjoyable day of fishing and suspense, waiting until the actual  weigh-in to discover whether or not they have qualified for a prize.  Bob Clothier of the C.B.C. series "The Beachcombers" will officiate  at the Government Wharf as Chief Weigh-in Master with a crew of  eight officials to assist him.  This novel fishing derby has been greeted with approval by Fisheries  and Environmental people and with delight by every fisherman, sports  or commercial, who has ever had a day's fishing spoiled by an abun-  , dance of the coastal pests.  See the article inside for more information on the dogfish and its  use in various parts of the world. Meanwhile the organizers of the  Dogfish Derby, while gratified by the early response and the brisk  sale of tickets, hasten to assure us that many tickets are still available. So if you are interested in a fun day's fishing with a difference  pick up your ticket at one of the many stores in Gibsons carrying them.  Also planned for the festive day is a Dogfish Barbecue at the Government Wharf being run by Jerry Boswinkle and Helene Wallinder.  Ralph Harding will also be supervising a baron of beef stand at the  wharf.  The Coast Ne^s cools off  The unrelenting heat got to the staff of the'Coast  News last week and sent the bulk of them leaping  off the wharf in Gibsons.  John Smith of Smitty's  J   Marina was on hand to capture the damp crew  j   splashing happily in Gibsons Harbour.  Regional Board hear! petitions from  Davis Bay and Pender Harbour..

At the conclusion of the presentations made by Mulligan and  Dixon, the Regional Board representative left the hall. The  meeting wound down with the  election of trustees to replace  resignations and agreed on September 10th' as the date of the  referendum which would be the  course of action to be taken by  the Granthams Landing Improvement District with regards to  their water supply.

Association also withdrew its  sponsorship of the proposed tennis courts in the Wilson Creek,  area. The Community Association felt that they preferred to  approach the tennis courts in a  more restricted, community  fashion.  Also present at the August  11th meeting was John West-  wood who is proposing the cluster  housing development at Canoe  Pass. In explaining his proposal Westwood assured council  "We are certain that health  regulations will be respected."  In another development dealt  with at the August 11th meeting,  the application of H. Carter for  rezoning in the Sakinaw Lake  area to allow the construction of  a small marina was recommended  for approval. Originally Carter  had asked for the rezoning of a  thirty-acre parcel. Subsequently  this request had been reduced to  eight acres. Director Paterson  of Area "A" cautioned in regard  to this request for rezoning that  "This is a valuable lake with a  coho run and a sockeye run. We  don't want it contaminated anymore than can be helped."  Trailers  Water is shown leaking from the bottom of the water tank which services Granthams  Landing. The water tank is located on Reid Road.  The board also heard a presentation from a Pender Harbour  area resident, supported by Director Paterson which complained  about the use of travel trailers  on residential lots being used  for dwelling places without  adequate provision being made  for sewage disposal. It was the  contention that such use of residential lots had the effect of  lowering the value of the residential lots in the vicinity. Director Paterson stressed that this  was indeed a serious problem in  the area. "It's getting to look  like Hogan's Alley up there,"  he said. The board recommended  that Director Paterson and the  planning staff get together to  draw up regulations to clarify  the issue.  The Regional Board also voted  to rezdne portions of District  Lots 1462 and 1463 in the Avalon  Creek section of Area "F" to  Industrial 4 to allow Rivtow  Straits to go ahead with a proposed dry-land log sort operation.  In the Middlepoint area it was  recommended by Director Paterson that proposed rezoning in  that area from a half-acre density  to five acres to ensure a low residential density be turned down.  I The by-law was allowed subsequently to remain as it is with  zoning calling for half-acre lots.  excess was felt to exist.  One of the major items questioned was the proposed new  community hall for. Roberts  Creek. The board members felt  that the proponents of the new  hall should come back to the  board with some realistic kind  of assessment of the occupancy  that such a large hall could expect.  In another development the  Sunshine Coast Minor Lacrosse  Association withdrew its application for financial aid saying in  part "It would appear that our  efforts have been in vain." Of  particular concern to the association was what they termed the  complete lack of playing facilities,  though it is understood that a box  lacrosse facility would have been  available at the Sechelt Indian  Reserve. The association said  that it would turn its equipment  over to a local organization in  hopes that minor lacrosse might  still take hold in the area.  The Wilson Creek Community  QUESTION: What do you think "  of the Dogfish Derby?  Police news  Two major traffic accidents  occurred last week, one involving  a fatality.  On Friday at 1:45 a.m. four  miles north of Sechelt on Highway 101, a car driven by Graham  Straghan of Sechelt left the road,  hit the ditch and then stopped  in the middle of the highway.  The passenger, Sharon Lawson,  also of Sechelt, died from injuries  received.  Two people are in St. Mary's  Hospital in satisfactory condition  after a motorcycle accident on the  Davis Bay hill last Wednesday.  A car was making a right hand  turn into a driveway, the driver  of the motorcycle was confused  and tried to pass on the right.  A Vancouver youth was picked  up   on  Gabriola   Island  by   the  Nanaimo police after stealing a  13 foot boat in Secret Cove.   He  is   thought   to   be   responsible  for thefts from boats in Schooner  Cove.  i&fV*.  Dogfish Derby T-shirts have shown a remarkable  popularity since they first appeared a few weeks  ago. We found this one being well-modelled at  Armour's Beach last week.  B.C. Tel drops charges  The B. C. Telephone Company  said today that long-distance  charges on calls between Sechelt  and Pender Harbour will be dropped starting Monday, August  29th.  Company customer service  manager, Stan Patterson said  preparations for the extended  toll-free calling began shortly  after telephone customers in the  two communites approved a  referendum taken September  1975. Sechelt and Pender Harbour telephone subscribers voted  in favour of the proposal which  will be accompanied by an increase in monthly exchange rates.  "Implementation of toll-free  calling for Pender Harbour cus  tomers," said Mr. Patterson,  "will mean an increase of SI.60  for a private residential line.  $1.20 for a two-party residential  line, and 80 cents for multiparty users." For business subscribers it will mean an increase  of $6.45 for a private line and  $3.20 for a business party line.  For those in Sechelt, the removal of long-distance charges  to Pender Harbour will .bring an  increase of 40 cents for a private  residential line, 30 cents for a  two-party residential line, and  25 cents for residential"' multiparty lines. Business lines will  go up $1.65 for private service  and 80 cents for party line service.  MR. F.MASON  Bals Lane, Gibsons  "It's a great idea. We  have far too many dogfish  around. I'd like to see dogfish derbies throughout the  year. The more dogfish  you catch the more chance  then for the salmon."  CHARLIE CAIRNS  North Island Pest Control  "Too much of this kind of  thing might be bad for my  business. I mean if you start  having derbies for one pest  where will it end? Next  year it may be the world's  largest carpenter ant derby  and then where would I  be?"  PATJOHN  Actor, Gibsons  "I think it's a great idea.  I mean it gives people a  chance to fish out the dogfish instead of the salmon.  I'm 100% for it. I think it  should happen every year.  If we fish enough dogfish  we'll give salmon a better  chance."  THELMAGOBERT  Cleaner, Gibsons  "Let's get them the hell  out of the water so the salmon can live. I know how  important salmon are to my  Indian friends. Believe me  they kept me and my family  alive during the war. Anything that makes it better  for the salmon is a good  idea."

Democracy and...  CNA  Full marks must be awarded to Bernie  Mulligan, Area "F" Regional Board  Director and to Gordon Dixon, Works  Superintendent, for their efforts on  behalf of the Regional Board at the Granthams Landing Improvement District  meeting held on August 13th. They were  present, along with Ed Johnson of Area  "E", at the invitation of the Granthams  Landing Improvement District trustees  to explain the service that the Regional  Board was offering in the controversial  proposed tie-in of the Granthams water  system with the Regional water system.  Initially the meeting can only be described as highly hostile to the Regional  Board representatives. In fact, in a display which can only be described as  boorish and ill-mannered, many of those  present seemed intent in refusing  audience to the men from the Regional  Board. Having made their minds up, it  seemed, they had no wish to have their  conclusions confused with an input of  fact.  The invited guests were kept waiting  an unconscionable long time at the end  of the hall while the residents of Granthams quarrelled amongst themselves  about the format the  meeting  should  take. Surely there is a case to be made  here for a drawn-up agenda and a chairman with a knowledge of Roberts Rules  of Order and a willingness to make use  of thegayel.  In any event the hall was frequently in  uproar with virtually no-one listening to  anyone except their especial allies.  Mulligan and Dixon waited patiently  and when they were finally allowed to  explain what services could be provided  in the long term by the regional water  system endured stoically various interruptions which would have looked  childish at a Grade Four class meeting  and various accusations of lying and  chicanery for which they might have been  forgiven if they had lost their poise.  They did not lose their poise, and  Mulligan in particular, since he was first  up to speak, did much to defuse the tension by insisting simply in speaking  common sense to the point where only  the hard-core irrationals could refuse to  hear. If the people of Granthams insist  on a referendum by all means let them  have it, said Mulligan. Obviously the  feelings in the community were running  too high for the oldest democratic procedure of a show of hands and public  debate to be a valuable exercise.  ��� ���  ���the water issue  Quite apart from the embarrassing  show of bad manners and the lack of a  grasp of even the most fundamental  decencies of public debate, however,  the meeting was notable for the similarity  with the public meeting which took place  in Gibsons recently. Once again the  Regional Board, which is often portrayed  as being irrationally hostile to development, was being seen as the ogres who  were planning development and instituting change to benefit exploiters. Once  again the distaste for change from time-  honoured practices was allowed to get  out of hand to the point where irrationality was the order of the day.  How is one to understand the attitude  of people who hear that their water  system can produce only fifty-five gallons  per minute for fire-fighting when the  recommended minimum for residential  safety is four hundred gallons per minute  and yet refuse to hear the pleas of the  volunteer firemen who may be asked to  save residential lives at the risk of their  own? And who refuse to hear these  pleas when a low-cost and vastly superior  alternative is available? Surely it is not  saying too much to say that if one house  or one life were saved in the future because of the improvement in the water  supply and pressure then the change  would have been proved to be worthwhile.  Meanwhile, it bears repeating that  Mulligan, a man who appears to be growing with the job, and Dixon comported  themselves with patience and dignity  last Saturday night. For the people of  Granthams Landing, it might be fair to  say that if the only stances that can be  summoned up on public issues are apathy  or irrational anger then the outlook for  democracy would be very poor indeed.  If it's a referendum you're after, by  all means have one. It is to be hoped  that the decisions you make in the polling  booth are arrived at with more rationality  than many of the attitudes in evidence in  the Granthams Landing Community Hall  last Saturday night.  ...from the files of Coast Nomb  5YEARS AGO  At the Twilight: Twiggy in the Boy  Friend.

Peterson  Slings & Arrows  George Matthews  Musings  John Burnside  Everybody should have a  favourite uncle, of that 1 am convinced. Growing up in Ayrshire  in what the sociologists might  call an extended family situation  I had many uncles and cousins.  My mother's brothers were my  favourites, however, and of the  two particularly my Uncle Will.  Like all of my relatives, he w_as  a coal miner and, at five fgjjt  ten inches and powerfully bug*  he was a big man for a miner.  I say 'was' not because he is  no longer with us but because he  is no longer a miner.  'Big Wull" as he was known to  his workmates, was the man we,  as boys, loved to take walks with'.  Like many of the miners he had  a dog always which he used for  catching rabbits and the dogs  were always models of alert,  intelligent responsiveness. I  can remember on one of my trips  back to Scotland, perhaps in 1962,  we went out for a walk, probably  of six or eight miles duration.  It was that rare day when no  rabbits could be raised and he  particularly wanted to show me  his dog, Tweed, in action. At  the far point of the walk he accepted the fact that there was to be  no sport that day.  "Watch this!" he said, and  dropped a glove. The dog was  foraging on the nearby hillside  a hundred yards or so away and  he made no effort to draw its  attention to the dropped glove  but walked on without further  comment about the glove. About  an hour and a half later as we  approached the door of his home  he broke off the story he was  telling me and said to the dog  "Haw Tweed, away ye go and  get my glove." The dog looked  up alertly and then was off, nose  to the ground on the back track.  We had barely finished our first  cup of tea when she was back,  delighted and with glove in  mouth. His skill with dogs was  remarkable in a place and at, a  time when well-trained dogs were  everywhere.  But walks with my Uncle Will  were remarkable not only for his  dogs and his skill. He was a  raconteur of great energy and  recall and a walk with him was  a constant delight of anecdotes  and stories of the village and  its people. He took a bluff and  kindly, exuberant delight in  people and their foibles.  Though his wife insisted that  he was a shy man, he was inevitably called upon to M.C.  social occasions, which he did  with great charm, humour and  personal presence. He sang,  too, in a strong rich baritone.  His walking days are over now,'  for reasons I will mention, but  still to take a car ride with him  is to be entertained from beginning to end. The stories roll  out with all their old richness  and insight, the songs come  melodic and strong. He recites  the poetry of his country with  clarity and feeling - and he teases  and kids continually.  Less mobile now. he entertains himself by collecting tapes  of the songs of Scotland and his  knowledge of them has become  encyclopaedic.  There were eleven years between visits to Scotland for me  when I went last year. Much  had changed and much had remained the "same.���'���- My Uncle  Will, I had been informed by  letter, had had a long battle  with illness. A respiratory ailment had made it necessary for  him to take cortisone continually  and the side-effects of the medication had affected his circulation  to the point where he lost first  one leg from the knee down  then shortly after that the other.  There were no more walks to  be taken with Uncle Will. But  among the things that hadn't  changed were his zest for living  and the high good humour with  which he confronted every day.  Undiminished, too, was his independence. He lived alone in  his own place just down the road  from where he lived when I first  knew him and a visit with him  was the same rich, warm entertaining experience it had always  been.  He had a little invalid car which  he drove around the countryside, visiting and cheering up  others who were left alone after  a lifetime of companionship or  depressed because of lengthy  battles with infirmity. And what  a tonic the elderly and infirm  must have found him. "If Wull  Dalziel can be that cheerful  after what he's been through  andwithnolegs..."  Once when I arrived to visit  him I found him with an invalid  car that wouldn't start and striving to push it on his artificial  feet. Often he would get up to  leave and have to come back  for the canes with which he got  around. On another occasion he  was looking after a farm for a  farmer who had taken a rare day  away to attend a daughter's  'wedding and when we arrived  to visit we found him on his  artificial legs on his way to the  barn prepared to play midwife  to a pregnant cow if such should  prove to be necessary.  All through my boyhood and  young manhood he loomed as a  figure that a man could emulate.  The boundless good humour,  the integrity, the innate dignity  of a good worthy man who deserved the accolade of "one of  nature's gentlemen."  At moments of crisis he was  always central in the family's  affairs. When my father died  and my brother and I had gone  to meet my sister returning from  England it was Uncle Will who  met us at the bus stop. Instinctively I knew and moved ahead to  let the adults talk. Shortly there  was the large hand on my shoulder  and  the   well-loved   voice:  "Your daddy's away, son."  He has been a life-long teetotaller: "Ach I had the notion  when I was about seventeen but  my mates weren't interested.  Six months later they were hard  at it but I'd lost the notion. I've  never felt the need since. Mind  you, I can see where some folk  have trouble getting loosened up  and 1 don't begrudge them' their  wee hauf, as long as they don't  abuse it and themselves."  This, then, is by way of being  a simple tribute to a man who  gave me much. A man who  taught by example, and still so  teaches, that it is possible to  make one's way through this  troubled vale with a song and a  story, that great strength of body  and character are reconcilable  with modesty and kindliness,  that a man could walk with erect  dignity whatever his station in  life or the troubles that beset  him. Would that every child  could have such a model. And  Uncle Will, over there in Muir-  kirk where I was born, if it has  seemed at times that I was no  worthy student, be assured that  I haven't stopped trying.  The poem on this page this  week, in simple Scottish verse, is  his and regrets the lost walks.  I was present at a conversation  with my uncle and an old friend  last year when the two old men  observed that the young folk  didn't roam the hills and moors  as had their generation. "They  don't know what they're missing," said the friend. "You're  right," said Uncle Will. "But  by God, sir, I know what I'm  missing." The poem, like the  man, expresses regret - but never  self-pity.  What ever happened to the  revolution? Ten years ago I  was assured by any number of  people that "the Revolution" was  at hand. The Marxist-Leninists  said with the confidence of inner  knowledge that it was no more  than five years away. The Trot-  skyites with predictable fervor  and polemic hysteria were working on a two year time table. I  would guess maybe a hundred  people told me about "the Revolution"; friends, acquaintances,  people I didn't even know. I  didn't ask, I made it a point not  to ask', I didn't want to know  about "the Revolution" what  ever of when ever it was supposed  to be. Once I asked what "the  Revolution" was. The person I  asked was an acknowledged expert on "the Revolution", he was  a camplisi--Trotskyite," thfe^son  of some wealthy Okanagan businessman, he smoked funny cigarettes, liked to take his clothes  off and didn't wash very often.  Obviously if anyone knew about  "the Revolution" he would.  "Tell me Raul." (he called  himself Raul pronounced Raool.  His real name was Chuck but he  was trying to forget his old name  along with the fact that he played  football in high school.) "When  the revolution comes what's it  going to be like?''  "Far out man" (he was an  English Major), "I mean like  out of sight, a whole new trip,  I mean like the whole number,  like barricades and like revelations like can you dig it? "  Ten years later that prophetic  vision of "the Revolution" remains with me in all its pristine  clarity. It wasn't quite like Raul  said. It didn't take two years,  it didn't take five. There were no  barricades and no revelations. It  was going on around us at the  time and we didn't recognize it.  The world is different than it  was ten years ago, its upside  down in many ways but when  "the Revolution" came and went  it was not what we had expected.  I just got up one morning and  realized that "the Revolution"  had come.  Even now, ten years later, in  staid early middle age I see the  wreckage'of "the Revolution" in.  the strangest, most unexpected  places.. The other day I had  coffee with a fellow and his wife  who were products, one might  even say children of "the Revolution". There he sat, a youthful,  handsome, physically fit fifty-  three year old man on his way to  work in a peasant shirt and dark  tan. This man, believe it or not,  took his wife out to breakfast  every morning, or I should say  they took one another out to  breakfast (they were very liberated) so they could talk to one  another. Sometimes they spend  two or more hours at their meal,  actually talking to one another.  Now according to sociologists  the average .. North... American  couple spend about twenty-eight  minutes a week talking at, not  to, each other and sixty percent  of that "talk" is giving directions  or orders. Here were a middle  aged man and his wife who had  a standing "date" for breakfast  so they could talk.  What, you ask, could an old  married couple possibly find to  talk about for all that time? Well,  they talked about their Yoga  classes, their squash game, their  jogging program, their latest  "encounter" group, how they  felt that day and all kinds of  other things. They spent a great  deal of time talking about things  that you might call "personal  development". They talked  about personal freedom, individual integrity and growing.  What's revolutionary about a  man talking to his wife? The  thing that struck me as unique  was that the things they shared  and talked about and did together  and separately were products  of a new consciousness that has  developed in the last ten years.  Ten years ago this scene would  not have been played out. It  was "revolutionary".  Although we didn't recognize  it at the time, what "the Revolution" was all about was per-  Condnued on Page 3  ^SSSSSSS@SS^SSSSgsss&SSSSSSS& MEMORIES by William Dalziel *&'&*&.<&*^^  >�� S_  So on I went up past the Slack j��  Wi' steps that never/altered 3��  S  Igaeda walk the ither night  That I of times gaed afore  But this time it was different  Ijist opened memoires' door.

The revolutions  for religious freedom had been  played out centuries ago, the  revolution for economic freedom  had been fought with more or  less success, the revolutions for  political freedom have been won  with greater or lesser success at  least in this part of the world and  now the revolution for personal  freedom is drawing to a close,  for some people successfully for  others,' unsuccessfully. Many  people didn't recognize it and  didn't want it but for those who  did the world has changed for  the better because of it. .  Having lived through this  revolution I suspect that all revolutions are the same in that they,  represent different things to  different people. Right now  we're engaged in the less dramatic but nevertheless essential  task of cleaning up the excesses  of the revolution. Overly liberal  approaches to criminality,  sexuality, drug abuse and so on  are being restructured to fit with  the post-revolutionary era. As  for Raul, (its been Chuck for  years now) his revolution came  but he didn't recognize it. I'm  sure he's not the only car dealer  in Vancouver who smokes funny  cigarettes, likes to take his  clothes off in public and is his  own Guru. Ten years ago he  would have been labelled an  eccentric for his lifestyle, today  he's just another citizen and  that's what "the Revolution" was  all about.  LETTERS to the  Matthews criticized  Editor:  I was not a little surprised and  dismayed to observe crass misuse  ofthe English language in George  Matthews' column, SUngs and  Arrows, in the Sunshine Coast  News of August 9, 1977. Surely  it was not necessary for George to  demean the English language  'because he was writing of life  in a logging camp.  "Me" can only serve as the  subject of a sentence in' the way  I have just used it. Under any  normal circumstances it has to be  the object. For a subject, "I"  (or "we") is necessary. It simply  is not correct to write or say  something such as, "Me have  read the newspaper", or, "Give  the newspaper to I".  The fact that such abuse of  the English language as appears  in George's first sentence, "...me  and "the kid" were setting  chokers..." is by no means uncommon and in no way mitigates this ugly flaw. Perhaps  the best known example of this  disregard for correct usage is in  the popular song, "Beth" by'  a group called Kiss, "me and die  boys..." Well. whatever, it was  they were doing, "the boys and  . I" is the required phrase.  It is to be regretted that  popular songs are sometimes  replete with such examples of  incorrect English, an obviously  unsalutary influence on young  people. I think that the readers  of the Sunshine Coast News have  come to expect a high standard  of English in this newspaper,  and I trust that such blatant  abuse of the language will not  be permitted again to stain its  pages.

Coast News, August 16,1977  THE VIEW FROM FINNING  TRACTOR  A couple of months back, I  was driving with a friend through  the industrial jungle that has  flourished in the upper False  Creek area around Main Street  since much further back than my  memories reach. As we tooled  through this unpretty conglomeration of warehouses, factories, and storage-yards, we happened to pass the Finning Tractor  complex, ��t several-block sprawl  of buildings and assorted heavy-  equipment. The latter ranged  from the inevitable tractors to  new-fangled log-loading devices  of types I'd never seen before outside of ads. All were painted,  however, that same, familiar,  lurid yellow. "Ever tell you I  used to work for them?" I asked  my friend.  "Don't think so," he replied  without much interest. "When  the hell was that?"  "Oh, about twenty-eight years  back," I said with a wince of  disbelief that it had actually been  that long. But there is no conning  the calendar and it was in the  chilly winter of 1948-49, that I  offered my dubious services to  Finning. The company was much  smaller then and was located in  a very long, narrow structure  that jutted out into the wasteland of the False Creek Flats, at  right angles to Station Street and  close to the Great Northern train  depot. I'd secured the job  through the Unemployment Insurance which performed that .  function in those days. The benefits   then   were   so   abyssmally  Pages  from a Life-Log  Peter Trower  small, I was glad to get back to  work. The feeling of gladness  did not last for long.  I was . hired for a six-month  probationary-period and put to  work in 'the warehouse. It involved a fair amount of lifting and  shifting but I was young and  skookum. The labour as such,  didn't bother me. It was the  characters I had to work under.  The two regular warehousemen  and my'; direct bosses, were a  couple of cynical, ill-natured  bastards with little patience and  less humour. They got on my  case from almost the first day and  rode me unmercifully. In all  truth, I was probably a bit slow on  the uptake but I wasn't lazy. This  cut no ice with them and they  ordered me around like a dog. I  couldn't afford to quit so I suffered their abuse in silence. I  can see their sneering faces  and hear their sarcastic voices  to this day.  Had I been forced solely to  work with the scornful warehousemen, I couldn't possibly  have stuck Finning for long. Fortunately, I was delegated to  spend at least half my time in the  Receiving Department away from  my tormentors. The 'department' consisted of one man, a  congenial fellow called Roy with  whom I got along much better.  He was a slight, blonde youth  with - thank God! - a. sense of  humour. The job involved mainly  signing   for  and   dealing   with,  AUGUST 31st  JIM NABORS  Dinner at Grouse Nest  Leave Sechelt  10:00 a.m.  CONTINENTAL  TRAVEL  TRAIL BAY MALL  Reservations: phone 885-3277  $19.50  All Inclusive  ���������_.���-���-���-"-'  RESTAURANT  Sunnycrest Shopping Plaza  Gibsons 886-8015  Featuring the finest in  Cantonese and Western Cuisine  SPECIAL GROUP DINNERS  OF CHINESE FOOD  Open 4:30 -10:00 p.m.  Closed Wednesday  DINE    IN    OR   TAKE   OUT  the various parts that were delivered by truck to a bay on the  north side ofthe building. About  two-hundred feet distant and  directly parallel to Finning Tractor, was a Chinese wholesale  vegetable warehouse of similar  construction. Against the warehouse, lay a large barrel on its  side. The first morning I worked  with him, Roy pointed this out  to me. "Keep an eye on that  barrel," he advised cryptically.  I had no idea what in hell he  meant but every so often, I threw  a glance at the enigmatic cask  through the open bay door. Suddenly to my astonishment, the  barrel moved slightly and something black began to emerge  from the hidden open end. It  was like watching the first Martian extruding from its cylinder  in H.G. Well's War of the  Worlds. I gazed goggle-eyed as  a human hermit-crab crawled  free from his wooden shell and  rose shakily to his feet. He was  a small wino of indeterminate  age or race, unbelievably hairy,  ragged and scrofulous. The  grubby apparition relieved himself casually against the wall,  stretched, scratched and shuffled  off towards Station Street to commence his unimaginable day. I'd  never seen anything remotely  like it in my life and I stood there  in something akin to a state of  shock. Roy nudged me, chuckling  at my amazement. "He lives  there," he informed delightedly.  "That's his goddamn home!"  That was my introduction to  the rubby-dubs of the False  Creek Flats. Thereafter, I became as inveterate a wino-watch-  er as Roy. The barrel-man repeated his performance almost on  cue for about a week. Then one  morning, we looked out and the  barrel was gone along with its  occupant. Perhaps the city health  department had got wind of it.  Or maybe the barrel-dweller had  simply rolled his quarters away  to a more-secluded location. It  was a mystery we were never  to solve.  The barrel-man had vanished  &.-.���* h .' %  Have some  news i  The Coast News welcomes  social, church and entertainment news for clubs, lodges,  hospital groups and service  clubs.

They seemed to  regard the flats as their personal  back-yard. We used to watch  them grubbing about for bottles  and scrap metal which they could  flog for a few cents to the Main  Street junk-dealers. When they'd  scrounged enough for a few cans  of Sterno, several of them would  head out across the barren flats  in a grimy procession. Soon, far  in the distance, you could see a  thin plume of smoke rising as  they lit their ritual fire. When I  asked Roy what they were doing,  he said they were heating.the  Sterno, straining it through a  sock and drinking the resultant  concoction. The thought of Sterno or anything else strained  through a wino's sock still makes  me gag.  1 never regarded the rubby-  dubs as much more than a source  of entertainment until one day  when I was walking out to Main  Street to catch the bus. My route  took me past an incredibly rundown flophouse, long since fallen  prey to the wreckers. I was  almost level with the door when a  wino came pitching crazily down  the narrow staircase and landed  in a huddle at my feet. He lay  there like a broken doll in a tattered overcoat with white fluid  drooling from the corner of his  mouth. His stubbled face, relaxed in unconsciousness or  death, wore an expression of utter  incredulity. I hurried past him,  too craven to get involved but  from then on, 1 looked on the  winos with more compassion.  They had sunk about as far as  it is possible to sink but somewhere underneath it all, they  were still human beings.  My sessions in the Receiving  Department were pleasant  enough but always soured by the  knowledge that I must inevitably  return to the demeaning abuse  of the warehousemen. I decided  to get another job and by faking  a back injury, managed to wangle  two weeks off with pay. I hung  about downtown like a tourist  but was unable to locate any  other employment. When my  illicit holiday was up, I returned  disgruntledly to Finning. It was  better than starving.

The first sees an all-star cast in  Murder by Death, an original  screenplay by the phenomenally  successful writer of comedies,  Neil Simon. The film is a spoof  on the detective story genre and  mystery buffs and movie fans  alike should have a merry time  with this film. The all-star cast  boast three Oscar winners. Each  of the sleuths in the film is based  on a famous fictitional detective.  No one will have any trouble  in recognizing David Niven and  Maggie Smith as the Thin Man  and his lady; Peter Sellers is  seen spoofing Charlie Chan;  Peter Falk does an excellent  Bogart imitation as Sam Spade;  James Coco is seen as the effete  Hercule Poirot; and Elsa Lan-  chester as Miss Marple, another  Agatha Christie detective.  Added to this all-star roll of  sleuths is Alec Guiness as a  wacky blind butler, Nancy Walker  as a deaf and dumb and equally  wacky maid-cook, and Estelle  Winwood as an invalid nurse.  Truman Capote makes his acting  debut as a millionaire eccentric  who invites the group to solve  a murder which hasn't been committed.  The film, a real audience  pleaser, will play the Twilight  Theatre Wednesday through  Saturday, August 17th -20th.  The second film of the week,  The Confessions of a Driving  Instructor, is one of those saucily  irreverent comedies that the British studios turn out seemingly  with little effort. It will run Sunday through Tuesday, August  21st to 23rd. For those who  like light-hearted antics with a  dash of spice, this one will make  light-hearted summer-time  viewing.

It would be easy to dismiss  this book as a sensational pornographic tale it's certainly explicit  enough even by contemporary  standards to merit that description, and as such, will undoubtedly gain a large audience. But the  book operates, I think, on a  deeper and more satisfying level.  It participates in the extension of  a very old myth - that of Beauty  and the Beast, and in this capacity it achieves a certain timeless  quality that will speak it its readers in words of distant racial  memories.

Consumers who last year had  difficulty with faulty home canning closures shouldn't experience that problem this season,  says Ann Thomassen, Food Consultant with the Food Advisory  Division of Agriculture Canada.  The division has been involved  in research which has lead to  new standards for metal and  plastic jar lids used in home  canning of food. The specifications, now in effect should  offer home canners a standard of  quality. Reference to the performance standard, should be  marked on the package, along  with instructions on preparation  and use of the lids.  "Consumers were complaining  that some closures either failed  to give airtight seals or the seals  let go during storage." To discover which closures were faulty,  the Food Advisory Division tested  each brand of home canning  closure available on the Canadian  market. They tested pint and  quart jars, using the open kettle,  boiling water bath and pressure  canner methods. "We tried to  cover all the conditions which  might occur in home canning.''  Ms. Thomassen and a summer  student with the division were  involved in testing for nearly a  month during the summer of  1976. Two dozen of each brand  of closures were tested and  examined for an intact seal after  one day, two weeks and four  weeks.  The standards of performance  were issued by the Canadian  Government Specifications  Board after the testing and as  a result some lids are no longer  available on the market. Representatives of both the manufacturers and government met  to set the standards.  Ms. Thomassen notes that  testing of the closures will be  ongoing and the Food Advisory >  Division will continue to be involved. The Product Safety  Branch of Consumer and Corporate Affairs will ite enforcing  compliance with the standards.  A few weeks ago we ran a picture of Flume Creek  at the junction of Flume Road and Highway 101  as part of our Guess Where contest. Dramatic  evidence of our long hot summer is afforded by  this view of the same waterfall taken last week.  It is reported that several wells have gone dry  in the area.  ***** ********** * **��������*��**������*����* ***  pF^ Ellingham 's  ^   Astrology  ***********************************  Coast News, August 16,1977.  5.  Fishing Charter  Special  Week commencing August 16th.  General Notes: Jupiter is about  to enter the sign of Cancer and  remain there for roughly a year.  Consequently, we can expect  opportunity and change in areas  of our lives which may have become stagnant. This planet's  change of location is often a  pleasant boost for everyone. The  hotel and catering industry particularly enjoys better business  when Jupiter transists Cancer.  Let's hope so.  This week starts out rather  jittery with much restlessness,  petty worries, and general muddles. Luckily, Mars and Saturn  are helpfully aligned, restoring  a sense of stability and indicating  an excellent time for getting  things started.  Babies born at the beginning of  this week should be encouraged  (no joking) to digest their food  properly whilst weekend newcomers are likely to be practical,  realistic, and a littie eccentric.  Good luck, kids.  ARIES: (March21 -Apia 19)  Act on all messages deliberately. Opportunities to improve  domestic conditions on a long-  term basis are due soon. A shaky  start at work for those employed.  TAURUS (April 20 ��� May 20)  Practical cash-making ideas  begin to crystallize. Expect to  -feel much more broadminded in  the next few months. A social  . event could be more of a worry  than a pleasure.  GEMINI (May 21 - June 21)  Despite restless home conditions, an excellent week for consolidating small, personal matters. Fresh financial opportunities appear soon. Social  life swings again.  CANCER (June 22 ��� July 22)  Twelve months of opportunities  are coming in thick and fast.  Grab them while you can, Cancer,  because it's your turn. Messages, phone calls, and visits are  confusing this week.  LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)  Another good week for seeking  the assistance of friends to promote   plans.      Don't  be   side  tracked by petty money worries  that can be dealt with later.  VIRGO (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)  Early week worries should  dissipate as your behind-the-  scenes efforts are finally recognized and acclaimed. Expect  many changes to fulfill your  dearest hopes and wishes during  the next twelve months.  LIBRA (Sept. 23 - Oct. 23)  Don't ignore startling dreams  experienced at this time. They  are simply trying to direct you  towards the best alternatives.  Friends now begin to respect  your more positive attitudes.  SCORPIO (Oct. 24 - Nov. 22)  Your status receives an extra  boost but friends are still nervously waiting for straight-forward commitments and decisions.  A deeper interest in personal  skills, knowledge, and long distance travel will soon be felt.  SAGITTARIUS (Nov 23 - Dec 21)  A temporary muddle concerning your reputation may take a  few days to sort out. The direct  approach proves to be favorable.  .Expect benefits through insurance or joint finances during  the next 12 months.  CAPRICORN (Dec 22 ��� Jan 19)  Relationships are going to  improve steadily during the  next few months but don't jeopardize your recently earned  respect by preaching your views  and beliefs. This is a great week  for sheer hard work and finishing  off overdue projects. Get to it.  AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 ��� Feb. 18)  Somebody else's financial  mess could take up much of your  time and place you in an unexpected embarrassing situation.  Straight talking seems to be the  solution. Better employment  ' opportunities and improved  health coming up soon, Aquarius.  PISCES (Feb. 19 ��� Mar. 20)  Those close to you could haye  a very confusing week and, once  again, your beloved Piscean  sympathy is drawn upon for  support. Creativity, children,  romance, and speculation are  sources of enjoyment about to be  experienced in the months ahead.  $60 per day  for 2 people  Capacity 6 people  gas & bait  additional  Skipper & Guide  Craig Goodman  883-2343  Garden Bay, B.C.

Associate  One of the intriguingly individualistic shops recendy opened in  the Harbour area of Gibsons is  the Music Weavers, on the site  of what used to be Cozy Corner  Cameras, beside the bus depot.  The proprietor is Shelley Thompson, a Vancouver-born young  lady embarked on her first  business venture.  The Music Weaver deals ��� in  used books and used records,  bought and traded. If you have  a pile of old books that you're  tired of or if your record collection has reached unmanageable  proportions and you'd like a  little fresh blood in it, take your  books and records over to Shelley's and see what can be worked  out. At the present time she  is particularly anxious to increase  her stock of records.  Another aspect of the Music  Weavers is that the store will  sell musical instruments on consignment. If you have a flute or  a guitar or what-have-you, the  Music Weaver will look after it  and sell it for you.  Also   stocked   at   the   Music  Weaver are guitars and guitar  strings and harmonicas. Oh yes,  and it's also a pleasant place to  drop in and sit awhile to listen  to a little music if you're in the  Harbour area and would like to  relax.

This fellow's only drawback is that he  is scrappy with any other Red-  Tailed Shark, he will fight continually with his companions  as long as they are in sight.  These fish will not fight with any  other fish in your aquarium, and  if all the Red-Tails I have owned  are proof, they will not even  bother young live bearers.  The native habitat of these  fish is around Thailand, their  water conditions are slightly  alkaline but I have kept them in  acidic water without any harmful  effects to the fish.  The tempera  ture of the water should be 75  to 78 degrees F. They will eat  most types of live foods, plus  some vegetable matter and also  will accept dry foods, seemingly  with great relish.  Their body colour is a deep  brown to a solid mat black, the  tail and caudal base are a bright  red. The name "shark" is applied in the case of these fish,  because of their high dorsal fin.  When these fish do fight it is  usually all bluster with only some  tail slapping taking place. There  have been some recordings of  these fish spawning, but they  are few and far between. It is  believed that the breeders in  Thailand breed these fish in  outdoor ponds but little is known  on this subject.  Valu Plus - Medium  675 Gram Pkg,  Scott  Neutron  bomb seen  barbaric  From United Church of Canada:  The bizarre nature of .the debate about the awesome neutron  bomb being developed in the  United States indicates how far  some of the world's military men  have moved towards wholesale  destruction of entire nations. For  despite all the secrecy that surrounds the neutron weapon, one  fact stands out very clearly: A  number of top people in the  United States think the N-bomb  is a useful and viable military  tool.  What kind of weapon is this  neutron bomb? Its simple purpose is to wipe out human beings  while allowing the places where  they live and work to stand unharmed. The neutron bomb - a  so-called "clean" bomb - would  kill by ruining men's central  nervous systems. The form of  death that these bombs would inflict on their victims would include convulsions, intermittent  stupor, a lack of muscle coordination, with death coming  sometimes only days after the  attack.  It is to the credit of the U.S.  public that there has been a widespread outcry against the weapon. Newspaper editors have  been flooded with letters describing the neutron bomb as '  barbaric and reminiscent of the  napalm that was used during the  Vietnam war.  Yet the strangest aspect of the  whole   affair  is  that   President ;  Carter has approved development  of the new bomb.   Is it possible '  that the man who speaks about  himself   as   the   champion    of .  human rights will go ahead with  the manufacture of this horrific  new device?  One can still argue that the ;  neutron   weapon   is   no   worse ;  than   the   catastrophic   thermonuclear bombs that can wipe out'  entire    cities    within    seconds.  Hopefully, as the United States  and the Soviet  Union  move  at  snail's pace toward some form of  detente, the grisliest and deadliest of these weapons will be  banned in the fullness of time.  Why the United States is even  thinking     of     developing     yet  another horror, ^weapon for other 1  nations to, copy must remain one  of the great mysteries of 1977.  r  cheddar cheese  Sno Cap Choice - Frozen  french fries  2 lb.

Nutrition  notes  QUESTION: I have tried making  my own yogurt with skim milk  powder, but have problems when  I use the instant skim milk powder. The non-instant is not very  readily available. Do you have  any suggestions?  ANSWER: Usually, more of the  instant milk powder must be  used. A good recipe which makes  just under 2 quarts is i 5 cups  water (135 degrees), VA cups  evaporated milk, V_ cup yogurt,  3 cups instant skim milk powder  (or 2V_ cups non-instant)  The temperature should be  cooled off to 120 degrees' F by  the time the yogurt is added. Stir  well. Pour into jars and screw on  lids. Set in a large pot filled  with water 120 degrees F. The  water should come within 1 inch  of the top of jars. Place in the  oven with the oven light turned  on. After 2 hours check' the  temperature of the water bath.  If it is below 110 degrees F, heat  it on the stove, being careful not  to raise the temperature above  120. After 3 hours, check the  yogurt every half hour, to see if  it has set. This method usually  requires 4 hours. Chill immediately when set.  QUESTION: Is it true that the  Vitamin C in baby formula is  destroyed when boiling water is  mixed with it?  ANSWER: Yes, the Vitamin C  content of infant formula is decreased markedly by the addition  of hot or boiling water. When  preparing bottles, allow the  boiled water to cool before diluting the formula. The same  technique should be used in the  dilution of fruit juices for babies.  QUESTION: Is there any caffeine  in soft drinks or other beverages?  ANSWER: Cola beverages contain caffeine, but the quantity  is less than in tea or coffee.  Chocolate contains caffeine and  also another stimulant called  theobromine, so beverages such  as hot chocolate have a stimulant  effect.  QUESTION: I am interested in  using some of the many varieties  of dry beans available in the  stores but most of the packages  have no cooking instructions.  How should I cook them?  ANSWER: Dry beans, peas and  lentils are becoming popular as  a main dish or mean alternate artd  Gibsons Kinsmen Club member Haig Maxwell is pictured receiving the Deputy-Governor  of the Year Award during the B. C. Kin Convention held recently in Kamloops. Congratulations Haig.  are an inexpensive source of  many nutrients. All are good  sources of iron and the navy bean,  in particular, is a good source of  thiamine. When using dry beans,  peas'and lentils in place of meat,  remember" that the protein contained in these products is not  as complete or as high in quality  as animal proteins such as meat,  cheese, eggs and dairy products.  However, the bean protein can  be supplemented and consequently made more complete by  eating a small amount of meat or  other animal protein, a serving  from the breads and cereals  group, or some nuts or seeds at  .the same meal.  To prepare beans or whole peas  soak in 2'/_ to 3 cups of cold  water for each cup of beans for  12 hours or overnight. A quicker  method is to bring the water to  a boil, add beans and boil for 2  minutes only. Cover and remove  from heat, let stand 1 hour. Split  peas and lentils may be cooked  without soaking. Simmer or pressure cook in soaking liquid for  the time given below:  Kidney beans, simmer 2 hours.  Lentils, green,, simmer 45 min.  lentils, red, simmer 7 min. Lima  beans, large, simmer -30 min. or  pressure cook 3 min. Lima beans,  small, simmer 20 min. \ Navy  beans, l'/_ to 2 hours or pressure  cook 7 minutes. Split peas simmer 40 minutes, Whole peas  simmer l1/. hours or pressure  cook 3 minutes, soybeans simmer  3V. hours, or pressure cook 15  minutes.  After cooking, these vegetables  may be seasoned and eaten without further cooking, or they may  be combined with other ingredients in recipes calling for  cooked peas, beans and lentils.  QUESTION: How many calories  are in an average soft drink?  ANSWER: Cola beverages, root  beer and fruit-flavored sodas  vary between 100-120 calories  per 8-ounce glass. Ginger ale  is lower, with about 80 calories.  The calories provided are 'empty  calories', because they come from  sugar, without any other nutrient value. An average 8-ounce  glass of soft drink provides the  equivalent of 5V_ teaspoons of  sugar.

Good turnout for Timber Trails Riding Club  The Timber Trails Riding Club  held its  second horse show of  the   year  under  the   hot   clear  ..skies of Tiddly Creek Ranch on  August 7th.  There was a good turn out of  spectators and participants  which made a constantly exciting  day for all.  v The show followed the traditional pattern of performance  classes in the morning. In  these, both horse and rider must  demonstrate their skill and correct style as they are put through  a series of demanding paces.  At the lunch break the winning  ticket for the side of beef was  drawn.     It was  won  by  Cathy  MacLean of Gibsons. The second  prize of a food hamper was won  by Cathy Mellis of North Vancouver. Congratulations to both.  In the afternoon the competition turned to Western games.  The skills involved in games are  controlling your horse at high  speed and remembering to stay  on course through various  obsticles. The combination for  both rider and horse make these  events exciting for all.  The riding club would like to  thank all who turned out to watch  or ride and a special thanks to  all our helpers, the concession  workers, timers, and to Sid and  Elaine Miles for the use of their  property.

Some fast action from a rugby game played last season. Gibsons Rugby Club moves into  the second division of the Vancouver Rugby Union this coming season. Because of the  club's success they hope to start a second team this year to participate in the fourth division.  Anyone interested in playing the game, experienced or otherwise, are invited to attend  team practices which start Tuesday, August 16th, and are held on the field of Gibsons  Elementary School Tuesdays and Thursdays at 6:30 p.m.  Soccer practices  can be enjoyable  byBanfcMjkCo.

More on the Medical Clinic  Our write up last week announcing the $7,000 cross-coverage  deal between the Pender Harbour  Medical Clinic appears to have  been unusually well'fead. The  Ratepayers Publicity Committee  had received an unexpected and  quite gratifying wave of calls and  comments from local residents  expressing appreciation for  having the clinic situation explained. As one woman said,  "We want to support the clinic,  but it's hard when you can't find  out what's going on. All we ever  hear is rumours." . This sort of  'response is important to us because if there is one thing the  Ratepayers Association has  found out in its long and often  lonely struggle to provide Pender  Harbour with medical facilities,  it is that the key to success is  well-informed public support.  In fairness it must be said that  there was also one person who  objected to the clinic story.  Ratepayer ��� Secretary Howard  White told the committee he had  been contacted by John Logan,  a recently elected trustee to the  medical clinic board, who asked  him to relay his feelings to the  Ratepayers as follows:'  "The write up was correct  except for two points - in stating  doctors receive fees for in-patient  calls at the hospital when they  receive fees only for emergency  calls, and in stating the local  doctor has to work at the hospital  once a week to keep his hospital  privileges. In fact he must attend  every day, and he does emergency ward duty as well as surgery  ward duty."  "The rest of the write up "except for the part at the end about  the seven thousand dollars,' was  unnecessary 'because there was  nothing in it that wasn't already  common knowledge.''  "Even though true, the write  up should not have been published because the Pender Harbour Clinic is 'totally dependent  on the goodwill of the doctors  down at Sechelt,' and these  doctors, reading the story, 'might  just tell us to go to hell."  ,',', "In this way the write up  'could destroy the medical,clinic'  In fact, Logan said, 'If I hadn't  - acted quickly there, we might  have been in real trouble.' He  ��� advised the Ratepayers, through  ��� the secretary, 'never to publish  . anything like that again without  '. first getting approval from the  ' trustees ofthe clinic' It is understood   he 'afterward   called   an  ��� emergency meeting of the Clinic  ;   Society to propose clinic business  be kept confidential $n future and  ��� circulated a letter to newspapers  I taking the part of the  Sechelt  ��� doctors.  After discussing Mr. Logan's  comments briefly the Ratepayers  Publicity Committee decided he  was showing signs of ove  reacting   and   probably   unde  estimated the Sechelt doctors in  suggesting a simple report in  the paper would cause them to  do anything that would destroy  the Pender Harbour Medical  Clinic.      The   committee   takes  Pass, was given first and second  reading (approval, in principle)  at the August 10 meeting of the  Regional Board.

The development received its first and second readings at the Regional Board  meeting held on August 11th. A public hearing is being planned on the matter.  the position that health care is  public business and the public  has a right to be kept informed  about it at all times.  The Condominium Controversy  The day of the condominiums  moved a step closer for Pender  Harbour when, By-law. ISO, .containing a land-use contract for the  Millwood Development at Canoe  of 14 units on its property, a  3.61-acre piece formerly owned  by the Craigs at the Pender Harbour end of Canoe Pass. Planner  Paul Moritz told the meeting that  each unit would have parking  for two cars and the present  driveway would be widened to a  standard 6 metres and relocated  along the beachfront.   The units  treatment would be by aerobic  batch-type. Plans include a  private tennis court and "viewing  area". Water consumption would  be some 4,200 gallons per day.  Of particular concern to residents of the area and all persons  navigating Gerrans Bay waters  was "an extremely large proposed  water' lease' which would extend  almost halfway across the bay.  This would be the site of a private  marina consisting of two long  wharves in a Y-shape, and they  could form a serious impediment  to local boat traffic.  At the end of the Millwood  presentation a petition protesting  the development was presented  ���on behalf of 17 neighbouring  homeowners by Mrs. Kay White.  The petition read, "We the undersigned residents of the Canoe  Pass vicinity of Pender Harbour  object in principle to the introduction of cluster housing, condominiums or any similar type  of high-density development  which would destroy the atmosphere of quiet rural community  we depend on. We wish to instruct the Regional Board, the  planning committee and the planning department to draw up  zoning reflecting our wishes in  this matter." Mrs. White explained that the petition had  been prepared on very short  notice and that many families  who would likely support it  were away, particularly the  Antillas, whose property would  be surrounded by the development on three sides.  Director Jack Paterson, chairman of the Regional District  planning committee which has  been working with Millwood for  a year, told the petitioners that  the by-law would be recommended for first and second reading  in spite of their protest.  "We're in the same spot with  this that we were in the Salahub  rezoning," he said. "To get it  through to public hearing we  must have first and second  reading." It's a catch-22 situation however because once the  by-law has been given approval  in principle it becomes more  difficult to stop.  The Canoe Pass condominium  is an issue that bears careful  thinking on by all people concerned about preventing a  Steveston-style suburban nightmare from occurring in Pender  Harbour. There are two condominiums in the area at present,  but they were not built as such -  they are both converted motels.  The only condominium openly  proposed as such up to this point,  the Sea-Homes Development on  Francis Peninsula, has been  H&rfea but~ still lurks on the  'horizon like a dormant volcano  always threatening to erupt. The  Millwood plan is not quite so  massive and objectionable as the  Sea-Homes one but it still represents the foot-in-the-door for  high-density condominium-type  development in the area. There  is little doubt that if it succeeds  there will be a rash of such developments follow, because they  are cheap, profitable and very  much in fashion amongst the  developer crowd.  But just as we are poised on  the verge of being overrun by  miltiple-dwelling development we  are also presented with an excellent - and final - opportunity  to put an end to the threat for  good. Single-family dwelling  zoning is simple to draw up,  simple to enforce and most areas  with any community values worth  protecting have it. People in  this area can begin by rallying  around the Canoe Pass petitioners and sending letters objecting  to Millwood and demanding  single-family zoning to the Secretary-Treasurer, Sunshine  Coast Regional Board, Box 800,  Sechelt.

Dear Ann:  What feature do you consider  most important to the appearance? Is it hair style, clothes,  makeup, or personality? What  attracts the opposite sex?  Unready  Dear Unready:  I always plunge in, I have an  opinion. If you aren't interesting,  who will notice all your efforts?  Cleanliness basically. The eyes  are the windows of the soul,  hopefully you have warmth, are  interested in others, a caring  person attracts, a giving person  brings out the generosity in  others. One soon tires of the  takers whether it's a taker of  time, attention or material things.  It has to bounce back and forth  like a tennis ball. There is a fine  balance. We show our affection  for others in little gestures, a  sharing of our windfalls, our  time and skills. Then good care  of teeth and nails, grooming is  important. We don't want to  touch or kiss anyone looking unkempt or dirty. So without being  beautiful a person can be attractive, magnetic and well liked.  The confidence a well-groomed  person has gives them poise.  So you see I do have an opinion.  <P*X  Washington  PEARS 3,/$1.00  B.

I think it  depends on the stimulous. If  one of you has a hobby that  brings you in contact with others,  if you have friends giving parties  or attending clubs or dances. You  should talk about it and plan what  to wear and generally get hyped  up over the idea. If you let your  contacts go, life flows along in  the eddies of the stream. You  must get back in the current some  way. You get enthusiasim and  energy from others. Be sure its  not just work, heat and tiring  days. We all have to recharge  our batteries. Try having a  small cocktail party and dinner or  cookout. Have music and dance  at home. Then you may be more  inclined to go out. Ruts are  comfortable.

The next day the sign was gone  so John donned his spurs and  spiked a stronger sign forty feet  up a nearby fir tree. The next  day it was gone too. Good old  country hospitality.

There are serious problems in  the country today and I sincerely  hope that the Prime Minister,  who now enjoys a majority government in Ottawa, will attempt to  deal with some of the country's  critical social and economic  problems instead of calling a  federal election at this time.  Such an election is unnecessary  and costly and, if called, will  simply be an attempt to bolster  the Liberal spirit that has sagged  over the years through the lack  of leadership on the part of  Pierre Trudeau.  The call for national unity is  simply a call for Liberal unity  under the party's tattered banner  and under a leadership that has  been questionable over the past  few years of Liberal rule.  What we need are serious  discussions to resolve our problems, not bluff and political  posturing. Canadians must be  convinced that confederation  and unity means jobs for people,  a "meaningful life for all and a  determination to keep this country together on a solid foundation  of social and economic justice.  Unless we can develop a national outlook instead of a provincial  outlook there is little hope for a  united Canada. All of us, regardless of racial origin, must do  our best to live for Canada. Each  of us can do something to lessen  those divisions that separate us  socially, economically and culturally.  Here in British Columbia we  have witnessed the result of the  Liberal government's shortsighted policies and lack of concern for western Canada through  its failure to provide the northern  coastal areas of B. C. with an  adequate transportation system  and its inability to take stronger  action with regard to future and  possible' massive pollution of  our coastal areas.  There are serious problems in  this country and in this riding  itself that have to be dealt with,  not .by. politicians who lack initiative in makings-decisions.and,,  taking such action is necessary  to defend the interests of the  people, but by..politicians who  believe in principles and who will  take the initiative in defending  the interests of the people - and  protecting their environment.  As an NDP candidate for nomination in the new federal riding  of Comox-Powell River, as a former Member of Parliament and  as a Canadian I have faith in the  future of Canada, in its parliamentary democracy and in its  ability to solve the social, economic and cultural problems that  face us today. .  Harry Olaussen  Aquatic  Editor:  The Pender Harbour Aquatic  Committee wishes to thank the  Pender Harbour May Day Committee for their generous donation of $500.00 towards the swimming pool for Pender Harbour.  Most of the money came from the  beer gardens so a special thanks  to the people who engineered  the beer gardens. This donation  is a tremendous help towards  the expenses of the Aquatic  Committee and it should nicely  carry us through the busy year  ahead when we hope to see the  pool become a reality. It gives  our committee renewed vigor to  continue the work on the pool  with such wonderful community  support.

Dear Teenagers:  Thank you for supporting us  when we sponsored the Sea  Cavalcade Teenagers Dance.

We congratulate you for your  excellent behaviour during the  . dance.... - We .hopej yon enjoyed  yourselves; because, we were  most happy to sponsor the dance  for you, and we shall be ready to  do it again next time.

Being  new to the area I obviously can't  understand all the issues and  problems involved. There are  however, several things that I  do know. Firstly, the picture as  painted in the column is much too  simplistic in nature and in some  areas completely inaccurate.  Secondly, in the two months of  my being here I have had complete co-operation and help from  the doctors in Sechelt and Gibsons. Finally, articles such as  last weeks do nothing to improve  the situation but are in fact  quite detrimental to the cause.  E. F.

Editor:  In reference to the Pender  Harbour Ratepayers Report on  page 12 of the Coast News of  August 9th, Trustees of the Pender Harbour and District Health  Centre Society would like to point  out an inaccuracy in reference to  the Sechelt doctors. We would  like to state that from the inception of the Clinic the doctors  at Sechelt have cooperated with  the Pender Harbour doctor to a  high degree, even though there  was no working agreement. Now  that we have a satisfactory arrangement, rapport between the  Pender Harbour doctor and the  doctors in Sechelt is excellent.  We would like also at this time to  particularly thank Dr. Paetkau  and Dr. Burtnick for their assistance in arriving at a reasonable  solution.

Coast News, August 16,1977.  Mrs. Ruth Macdonald - a good citizen  by Francis J. Wyngaert  Editor's Note: Long-time resident of this area Mrs. Ruth  MacDonald - Mrs. Mac - passed  away on May 18th of this year In  Vancouver.  A belated acknowledgement is  perhaps better than none. And,  for one who had rendered community wide service over a period  of many years, it seemed justifiable that one respond to an  appeal to reminisce at least a  segment of bygone years.  Born in Ireland March 3,  1890, Mrs. MacDonald was still  a young mother of one son,  Hugh, when settling at Gibson's  Landing during the fall season,  1918; having moved west from  Innisfail, Alberta. Her husband  had died in the act of duty during  World War I. During the years  to follow one frequently heard  the name Mrs. Ruth MacDonald.  To those who came to know her  intimately, she was "Mrs. Mac",  a name which remained throughout the rest of her lifetime.  Never was she addressed as  Ruth.  An exceptionally gifted person,  Mrs. Mac could capably apply  the use of her hands to various  types of endeavour. Early training in Ireland had qualified her  in a most talented way as a practical nurse, pianist, in home-  cooking, as well as fancy work.  As early as 1919 she commenced  assisting Dr. Frederich Inglis on  special occasions. While horse  and buggy still reflected the mode  of travel, Mrs. Mac accompanied  the doctor annually during inspection of school children. This  included Howe Sound School,  two at Roberts Creek, one at  Wilson Creek, Sechelt Indian  Residential School, as well as  the public school, then via fish-  boat from Porpoise Bay on  through the Skookumchuck to  Egmont School. In addition to  those listed, there was the Bowen  Island School - and later Port  Mellon.  Shortly following this period,  the horse was put out to pasture.  Doctor Inglis purchased a motorcycle, made in Switzerland and  having a Bosche engine. It was  belt driven and where gravel road  was reasonably good, a speed of  60 miles per hour could be attained. There were times of  emergency when Mrs. Mac's  assistance was sought, in which  case she occupied seating space  on the metal carriage at the rear  of the doctor.  With logging still very much  in vogue at Howe Sound and  district at large, injury to some  workmen was not uncommon.  Doctor Inglis was most appreciative of the knowledge and ability  rendered by his assistant. She  uttered few words. She knew  what was required and made  preparation for the occasion.  There were instances when to  sterilize a needle one held a  table spoon with water in one  hand, and applied ignited matches with the other to bring the  minute amount of water to boiling point.  On numerous occasions Mrs.  Mac assisted in delivery of new  born babes. Less than two years  ago  while  the author and  wife  visited Mrs. Mac at Trinity Lodge  i.*i Vancouver, she reiterated one  such instance.  It was winter with already a  fair depth of snow. The call for  medical aid came from a crudely  built shack in a thickly wooded  area rather far removed from  the Sechelt Highway in Roberts  Creek. Doctor Inglis, wearing  thigh-high rubber boots, led the  way, breaking a path through  deep snow along the narrow  trail. Mrs. Mac followed, wearing knee-rubbers belonging to  the doctor's son Eric, but which  Mrs. Inglis insisted be worn due  to the unusual snow fall.  Inside the dwelling, a candle  forced into the neck of a beer  bottle offered the only light.  It was rather inadequate for the  occasion. But, Doctor Inglis was  not one to render complaint.  Nevertheless, he asked for three  things, a hammer, nail, and a  piece of twine. Without further  remarks he drove the nail into  a ceiling rafter, fastened one end  of the twine, and to the other end  his flashlight, adjusting its height  above the patient to attain the  most suitable use for the occasion.  But, to those who perhaps  could be termed a select few,  knowing this person as plain Mrs.  Mac, one reflects upon early  dance hall days when the piano  and violin portrayed the extent  of instruments used. Frequently,  Mrs. Mac at the piano and Guy  Fisher with violin were engaged  for such occasions; but not always  so. Mrs. Mac also enjoyed dancing, and particularly the quadrille. As the night wore on and  the pianist wished to be relieved,  it required such intimate acquaintances as Wilber or Frank Hicks  to appeal to Mrs. Mac to come to  the piano.. And, as she crossed  that floor, the room echoed with  the clapping of hands. All  seemed highly appreciative of a  special technique at the keyboard.  Mrs. Mac witnessed youngsters growing up in the community, including those of Doctor  Inglis. She saw the two sons,  Hugh and Alan growing into  young manhood; saw them leave  for university, and again as they  emerged as medical doctors,  now prepared to relieve their  "father at Gibson's Landing. For  a time they worked as a team,  and again singly when brother  Alan opened an office at Sechelt  during the period 1949-52. He  then returned to the Vancouver  General Hospital for specialized  studies.  But, throughout, Mrs. Mac  served as office nurse, attending  to appointments, and the typing  and mailing of statements, as  well as assisting where otherwise required.  While during the latter part of  his profession Doctor Frederich  Inglis did acquire a used X-ray  machine, his sons supplemented  with a more modern type.  It followed that Dr. Hugh  Inglis purchased the abandoned  post office at the foot of School  Road. The interior was renovated  and re-opened as a medical clinic  in 1963, with doctors from Sechelt  tide tables  STANDARD TIME  Tue. Aug. 16   0005  0504  1205  0650  8.7 Sat.

It was at this time Mrs.  Mac's many years of service  with the Inglis family terminated.  While by no means seeking  further public service, it appeared  obvious that inadvertently she  occasionally became involved.  Prior to, and following operation  of the first local funeral service  offered by Wally Graham for  the district at large, those who  knew Mrs. Mac intimately,  would cut flowers from their  gardens, gather some background material for a wreath,  and call at Mrs. Mac's home.  There were aware of her ability  to formulate an attractive wreath.  If more suitable flowers were required she merely plucked them  from her garden. All this devoid  of remuneration.  Mrs. Mac had served the community well, in addition to family  responsibilities, when during the  winter of 1922 her sister, Mrs.  A. J. Ellison, who had come to  Gibson's Landing only one year  previous, died of pneumonia.  For a time Mrs. Mac cared for the  two young nieces, Molly and  Peggy- It followed later that  John' and Myrtle Hicks, both  early settlers at Gibson's Landing, assumed charge of the two  girls.  It is some years now since  Mrs. Mac moved from the district. Due to ill health she was  confined indoors much of the  time, but not without an honourable pastime - fancy work in a  semblance of variety was always  her favourite pastime. In later  years it was the choice of appropriate coloured threads to apply  a finishing touch to stamped designs on pillow cases. These  made an attractive gift to some  special person.  She is gone now. To most  folk locally she is unknown; to  some she is remembered as Mrs.  Ruth MacDonald; but to a select  few, she is still spoken of as  Mrs. Mac.

In  central Illinois a large gray bird  with a wing span of 10 to 12 feet  has intermittently been sighted.  In one instance it was reported to  have attempted to carry off a  70 pound boy.  In Davis Bay we have our own  strange sightings. These are also  gray, but quite a bit smaller.  They are about the size of a  pheasant and have a long tail  with red highlights.  This is not a bird indiginous to  this country, and the only explanation seems to be that they  have escaped from an aviary  which was in the area several  years ago.
