Committee members present were Barry Pearson, Area  **C" Director, Morgan Thompson, Sechelt representative to  the Regional Board, and Peter Hoemberg, Area "B" Director.  Committee member Ted Dixon was unable to attend. Also  present were Gilbert Joe, representing Tthe Sechelt Indian  Band and Robyn Addison of the Sunshine Coast Regional  District planning staff.  Generally speaking the meeting seemed to be divided into  two groups: residents who opposed commercially-oriented  developments in present residential areas and a second group  who felt that the suggested vicinity plan ran the risk of being inflexible to the point of impeding  desirable and necessary change  in the future. Representing this  view point, Don Sutherland of  Porpoise Bay presented a brief  to the committee which said,  in part: "...my suggestion to the  board is to sit down with a pencil  Sechelt, then; the committee will  have to re-examine their comment on heights for building. He  felt provision would have to be  made for at least three-storey  buildings in the core area. Residential use will need to be provided for in the core area, said  Anderson, as gasoline prices increase.  Speaking on the other side,  Ernie Wood of Whittaker Road  presented a brief to the committee which said that he had  bought land in a residential  area and did not want to see the  Charlie Scales presents his brief at the recent  Sechelt Vicinity Plan meeting.

I feel the board must grasp  the fact that you cannot build  this community with a continual  production of complex paper  guide lines." Sutherland asked  the committee to re-evaluate the  draft of the plan and assess its  flexibility. He felt specifically  that sewer requirements for Porpoise Bay were inflexible and the  infilling purpose was.inflexible.  Stan Anderson of Wilson  Creek in a presentation to the  board said that if growth is to be  concentrated in the small area of  commercial. expanded into the  residential area. He did not feel  that it was appropriate for Davis  Bay to develop as a commercial  centre, although he did like the  convenience store. He felt other  needs could be satisfied in  Sechelt. In the same vein, Ed  Scales of Davis Bay presented a  .petition to the committee which  at the time of the meeting had  ninety-three names on it. The  petition was against the recent  rezoning of Salahub's property  in Davis Bay to commercial to  allow the construction of a marine  supplies store.  Sechelt representative Thompson asked the meeting for a show  of hands to indicate the general  acceptability of the Sechelt  Vicinity Plan. Approximately  seventy percent of the meeting  indicated general acceptance.  Planning, rezoning and spraying  concerns of Regional Board  Police news this week  The regular regional district  public meeting held last Thursday opened with a request from  director Peterson of Area "C"  requesting that planning meetings and regular board meetings  should not be held on the same  night. The reasons advanced  were that the work load was too  much for one night. Tempers  were inclined to become frayed  and also since the two meetings  were one after the other, insufficient time could be given to  thinking over the planning proposals.  On director Hoemberg *s  recommendation, it was finally  decided that any planning  de  cisions made on the same evening  as a regular board meeting  would be held over until the  following meeting.  The Regional District Subdivision Amendment By-law  103.8 was given first and second  readings along with By-law 96.19.  The latter by-law refers to the  D & O Logging Land Use Amendment on the rezoning of their  property on Stuart Road to industrial.  The trustees of the Redrooffs  Waterworks District notified the  board of their approval to have  their system integrated into the  regional board's. They said they  would be recommending accep  tance to their members at a special meeting to be held on August  7th.  Funding for the Pender Harbour swimming pool will be taken  into consideration in the 1978  Neighbourhood Improvement  Program (NIP).: This information  was received in a letter from  W. E. McCracken, the administrative officer for the program.  The funds for 1977 have been  allocated, and the board's request for assistance will automatically be considered in next  year's program.  The board received a communi-  -^Pleaseturnto Page Six  Granthams views aired  A number of Granthams resi-   provement    District    executive,  ents attended last week's regional   expressing their wishes that the  Sometime between last Tuesday night and early Wednesday  morning, vandals in Sechelt went  on a spray painting binge. The  elementary, school was sprayed  and five windows broken. Many  store windows, four cars, the  medical clinic, the Bank of Montreal and a boat in the Trail  Bay Sports compound were also  painted. Gardens were damaged  and flowers pulled up.  Sechelt police felt that the  damage was done sometime between midnight and six in the  morning and are requesting information from anyone who  might have seen anything.  Over the weekend an RCMP  aircraft has been patrolling the  Highway 101 watching for speeders or drunk drivers.  In other police news, it was  reported that the Neighbourhood  Watch Progam has been completed from Lockyer Road to  Pender Harbour.    The program  contacted around 60%  householders. Anyone wishing  to be included can still. cont act  theRCM^  On" _ . ..y, July 24th, there  was a fatal motorcycle accident on  the Lower Roberts Creek Road.  The initial report was that a drunk  was lying on the side of the road.  It was not until later in St. Mary's  Hospital where he had been taken  unconscious that it was discovered that there had been  an accident. Police searched  the area and found the body of  James McDonough and the  motorcycle in the bush at the side  of the road. Local man Jim Holland was injured and is still in  hospital.  In the new phone book on the  inside cover under the listing  "Emergencies Only", the phone  number for Gibsons RCMP has  been omitted. The number is  886-2245.  School fire  protection  The ever-thorny question of  fire protection in local schools  was discussed again at the School  Board meeting held on Thursday,  July 28th. It was pointed out  in the management report that  one of the areas which might  benefit most from a sprinkler  system was the wooden wings of  Elphinstone High School. . The  core of the building, replaced  after the 1973 fire, is fire-resis-  : taint but the wooden wings are  vulnerable and contain that part  ofthe school which would be most  difficult to replace,: namely the  laboratories and the industrial  shops.  The board is to try to realize 7  sufficient funds from the provincial government to supply a  sprinkler system for the Madeira  Park and Pender Harbour Schools  as well. It was noted that the  proposed tie-in with the regional  water system will provide the  upper village area of Gibsons with  a significant head of available  water in the near future.  The recent public questionnaire  concerning the efficacy of School  Superintendent Denley has not  yet had its results tabulated.  It is expected that a press release will be made in the coming  week with the tabulated returns.  Local firm  turned down  Chairman Celia Fisher cast  the tie-breaking vote at the  School Board meeting held on  Thursday, July 28th. At issue  ^_^ was the application, invited by  tow��es*ilite," School Board, from ; local  auditing firm of .Warren "McKibbin to do the audit' of the  School Board books.  The application was invited  because of the high turnover of  staff in the Vancouver-based firm  of Clarkson Gordon led to new  auditors being instructed every  of  the   year in School  Board auditing.  This situation would seem to  have been somewhat alleviated  for this year at least by the appointment by Clarkson Gordon'  of the same accountant as had  done the 1976 audit, an arrangement at which secretary-treasurer  Mills expressed satisfaction.  Chairman Fisher's vote meant  that the Vancouver firm will  continue to audit the School  Board's books.  TV - Locals  Early morning television  viewers may have been lucky  enough to have seen two local  musicians and singers on Channel  Six on the show 'Daybreak'.  They were Reg Dickson of  Roberts Creek and Ken Burns  of Sechelt. Both performers  sang material they had written  themselves.  This downed hydro pole caused considerable difficulty in the upper village in Gibsons  last week.   It is believed that a truck swerving to avoid a collision with another vehicle*  clipped the pole and caused the problem. '         board meeting and had a chance  to have their views aired in an  open discussion session after  the regular meeting had adjourned.  Betty Turnbull stated that the  decision to tie into the regional  water system was not in accordance with the wishes of the  majority of the Granthams residents. This statement was  backed by another resident who  said that she had canvassed the  area and had found no one in  favour ofthe takeover. The transfer of ownership to the regional  board of the two lots occupied by  the existing water storage tanks  was also another major point of  contention.  Director Thompson explained  to those present that it was not  the intention of the regional  board to take over ownership of  the lots, and the misunderstanding arose from the board's statement that, if it was the wish of  the residents, the board could  legally assume ownership.  Secretary Anne Pressley read  the gathering a letter received  from the Granthams Landing Im-  tie-in should go ahead, this  showed that the differences of  opinion were at a local level  and should be sorted out by the  Granthams people themselves,  and that any complaints of this  nature should be taken up with  the water rights branch and not  the regional board.  . Director Hoemberg showed  the necessity 6f the tie-in for  providing for the future needs pf  water supply, both as potable  water supply and for fire protection. If the whole system  was tied in together, it was explained, then future updating  could be done with the help of  grants up to 75%, whereas a  smaller system would not be  eligible for such grants.  Gerry Mundell, one of the full-  time residents present, pointed  out at the end of the discussion  that he had been present on the  23rd of April when a closed vote  had been taken at a public meeting of the Granthams residents;  and the result had been 27 voted  against and 30 for joining the  regional water system.

The Sea Cavalcade  + CNA  There is something peculiarly charming about small-town celebrations. Big  ones get a little crassly commercial  almost automatically but the small-town  days of sunshine and frolic often still  retain the charm and good fellowship  of the community picnic. One thinks of  the bravely tattered flags that fly in  Dawson City on its Discovery Day. The  parade with the few ancient men in  the little antique bus, last survivors of  the thousands of bearded, moustachioed  vigorous men who once thronged the  streets of Dawson on Discovery Day. The  men are gone or very, very old and yet  throughout the Western Arctic Dawson  City remains the place to be on Discovery  Day. From as far afield as Fairbanks in  Alaska and Inuvik in the Northwest  Territories people who have lived in that  amazing little town at the confluence of  the Yukon and Klondike Rivers come  back to pay homage and remember.  In Whitehorse, incredibly, the big day  is not in the eternal summer sunshine  but in February, often in temperatures of  forty below. Even more incredible is  the atmosphere of Mardis Gras that their  Sourdough Rendezvous manages to  attain as the northerners kick up their  heels in defiance ofthe winter grimness.  And it is the contention here that the  Gibsons Sea Cavalcade is one of the real  dandies. With what dazed eyes a newcomer to the coast watches the vitality of  the Sunday water events. The dance of  the dozer boats, the hilarious antics of  the log rolling and boomstick races, the  tug-boat racing. At the wharf, too, and  at Dougal Park the glory of the natural  setting and the vigor of the community  combine to produce ah authenticity and  a charm which is ours alone.  The Sea Cavalcade mirrors the community. For pride and fun men do for  competition and the community what is  their routine work. The volunteer Cavalcade Committee has worked long, hard  hours to make this year's Cavalcade as  vital and varied as any in recent memory.  They deserve the thanks of the community for their selfless efforts. All  that remains for the rest of us to do now  is enjoy ourselves. For your information  the complete Cavalcade program is contained in these pages. It promises a  feast of unpretentious pleasure and,  again, the Coast News salutes its organizers.  Community views  -7 One of the more vigorous and healthy  developments in the life of the Sunshine  Coast of late has been the seriousness  and concern with which people address  themselves to the questions of whither  we are going. The various bruited community plans have generally been well  attended. The exchange of views has  been vigorous and open. Of course  there are differences of opinion and they  certainly are getting a good airing. .But  as every opinionated Scotsman knows,  there's nothing wrong with a good difference of opinion.  It would appear from this vantage point  that a healthy democracy is at work in  our midst. Apathy and disinterest do  not hold the sway that once they did.  The public meeting is back in style as a  vigorous forum. Elected representatives  are to be congratulated for the vitality of  their input. Whether it's the Pender  Harbour Plan, or the Sechelt Vicinity  Study, or the great Gibsons water debate,  the residents of the Sunshine Coast are  making themselves heard. It can do  nothing but good in the long run, this  clear expression of community views.  Audibility  All the councils and boards that meet  to discuss public business on the Sunshine Coast have one thing in common.  Inaudibility. Councillors and board  members all converse in what can only  be described as a conversational mumble.  They mumble while studying notes,  they mumble from behind pipes and  beards, they mumble from behind  cupped  hands,  they  mumble   towards  the table top indicating the direction of  their remarks by a vague pointing of  the top of the head. When not actually  yelling at each other they are mumbling  at each other. It works. They seem to  know what's going on, for the most part  anyway.  Could this be considered, however,  as one small journalistic plea for audibility without rancour.  .from the files of Coast News  5 YEARS AGO  Young Dennis Hostland of North Road,  playing crib with his grandfather, had  a 29 hand.  Pender Harbour Ratepayers write  Hon. Ralph Loffmark and stress the need  for a medical clinic at that end of the  peninsula.  10 YEARS AGO  Hopkins Landing held its annual  Sports Day in which the entire community  took part. The dock was gaily decorated  with pennants and the populace under  a sunny sky enjoyed the thrills of a fish  derby, swimming races and the presentation of awards at the end of the day.  15 YEARS AGO  Fire destroyed the Roberts Creek  three-roomed school Sunday. Damage  estimated at approximately $60,000.  The fire started around 6:00 p.m. and  within an hour and a half the school  was completely demolished.  An impressive ceremony was held on  the morning of July 29 when the dedication of the Church of His Presence,  Redrooffs, by the Right Rev.

L.R. Peterson  Musings  John Burnside  Slings & Arrows  George Matthews  What a marvellous magazine  the Raincoast Chronicles is. The  seventh issue is appearing in  stores around the Sunshine Coast  now. If you haven't met it yet  allow me to introduce you.  A few years ago there was  this young fellow called White  in Pender Harbour who started  a publishing company called  Harbour Publishing. In a converted shed just off the Francis  Peninsula Road, behind the hydro  yard, he set up some ancient  printing presses that he had  managed to procure and decided  to start a magazine. It was to be  a very specific magazine. It was  to deal with this history of the  B. C. Coast and its people. This  seemingly limited range of subject matter has proved to be, in  fact, an absolute mother lode of  diversity and interest. :  The range of people and  stories that parade the pages of  the Raincoast Chronicles, the  richly varied glimpses of the  lives of the pioneers who first  came to this magnificent meeting  of land and sea on the north-west  corner of the North American  continent are a constant and a  profound delight. This seventh  issue has a simple and moving  account of a Japanese Canadian  who came to Canada in 1910; he  tells of logging and fishing on the  coast in those early days of rampant racism and of the struggle  to oppose it; without bitterness  he speaks of the herding of  Japanese Canadians into interior  camps and road gangs and of  life in those camps. Through  the narrative like a silver thread  runs the evidence of an intelligent  and dignified human being of  great wisdom and integrity speaking always calmly on behalf of  justice and hope in a world constantly torn with great folly,  among people who hated with  that dreadful hatred, born of  fear and ignorance.  Captain Donald Peck tells us  about the Gumboot Navy, which  he commanded. "Of course it  is popular in many circles these  days, since we have become so  wise with handsight, to belittle  all wartime defence preparations  on the west coast...When Pearl  Harbour was being bombed out  of the sea to the south of us and  Japanese troops were occupying  Atu and Kiska in the Aleutians  to the north of us however, this  blithe attitude was not nearly so  apparent amongst the general  public." A group of recruited  men from the fishing and tow-  boat industries patrolled the  storm tossed waters of the North  Pacific in flimsy wooden hulled  fish boats, virtually unarmed, on  watch for the prowling and  deadly submarines. Captain Peck  tells of sighted submarines, of  storms at sea, of the shelling of  Esquimault, and of course the  constant battling of the highly  individualistic members of the  Gumboot Navy with the military  officialdom, mindless in its uniformity.  Yvonne Klan tells us about  the little-known Shaker religion,  which began among West Coast  Indians in 1881 and has its dedicated disciples to this day. It  is a religious sect of fervour and  faith, of sobriety and serenity,  of colourful and dynamic practice.  Bus Griffiths captures the colour  and drama of the logger's life  in a continuing adult comic strip  entitled "Now Your Logging".  His strip is well and painstakingly  drawn, his loggers believable,  his story line absorbing and  packed with incident. It is a  surprising and marvellous feature and, like everything about  the Raincoast Chronicles, its  authenticity is total.  Bill White gives us a vigorous,  humorous eye-witness account  of the adventures and the crew  of the St. Roch on its first and  historic foray into the Arctic.  There is a finely wrought and  moving tribute to that great  West Coaster, Roderick Haig-  Brbwn. There is good coastal'  poetry from Pete Trower and  Lois Gubbe and books about the  coast and province are well and  thoughtfully reviewed by a staff  of reviewers whose work matches  in quality the work of any magazine anywhere.  And indeed this is true of the  entire production. Quite aside  from the richly nourishing and  satisfying fare which the magazine- provides, everything in it  is so well done. The articles are  written by those who love the  language and use it well; the  illustrations, the photographs,  all so splendid. The seventh  issue of the Raincoast Chronicles is, in shorf, a joy; a magnifi  cent and moving tribute to the  men and women who have lived  here by those who live here now.  It is a service of no small  magnitude that Howard White of  Pender Harbour provides for us.  In a rootless and dishevelled  century and in a location where  almost everyone is from somewhere else, he gives us a sense  of community and of continuity;  he reveals our embattled species  in its quietly heroic, perservering,  constructive aspect. He offers  us an awareness of our place and  a pride in our being which is  spiritual nourishment of a high  order.  Nor have the people of the  coast been slow to express their  appreciation. When the hardbound collection Raincoast  Chronicles First Five appeared a  Christmas or so ago it was awarded the accolade of best book  published in British Columbia  that year and outsold everything in sight throughout the  province.  This is a case where a marvellous concept has been lovingly  and skilfully tended to full  vigorous life. This seventh edition is the Raincoast Chronicles in  its full, loving maturity. It is a  masterpiece. It is ours. Thank  you, Mr. White.  Summer, part time employment is good for the soul, not to  mention the family budget. My  summer work, this year, is setting chokers at a logging camp  in Salmon Inlet. I don't mind  saying that its the hardest work,  from a physical stand point,  that I've ever done. Whether  that says more about me than it  does about logging is something  you'll have to decide.  I spent a couple of hours last  week doing a fire watch after a  tough eight hours work. Twenty  miles from camp, 2500 feet up  the side of a mountain, it was  eerie to sit among the sleeping  machines, watching and hearing  the animals reoccupy their mutilated homes like Viet Cong after  dark.  The side stood lacerated by  our week of work, stumps upturned, healthy teeth torn from  rotted gums. Lesser or poorer  species of trees lay shredded and  the debris of our fight with the  forest was scattered as though  carelessly sprinkled by some  monstrous fist.  Working every day, you tend  ' to focus on small patches of  ground, too taken with the tactics of the job to notice the  strategy, concentrating on the  next turn then the next. Sitting below the combat zone after  the forces have ��� retired  to hot  OLD WOMAN ON YONGE STREET  Just by the way  this old Chinese woman  inches her way up the street,  one hand clutching her bag  the other one leaning all her weight  on store-fronts, the sides of buildings,  you feel there's no way she '11 make it  for another single block,  but probably some sad-sack like me  had the very same agonizing thought  a block or so farther down from here.

The  shivering ground is temporarily  stilled, the crashing logs, hauled  down, turn after inevitable turn,  the CRUMP! of solid timber  landing on the hill, the screech  and scrape of cables dragged  in and out, whistles, noise,  movement, excitement; ripping,  tearing, violent pleasure and then  a silent, unreal interlude to contemplate the terror that's been  created.  I used to think that the world  was wrecked forever by loggers  and miners. Ecology consciousness had given me a minor,  liberal antagonism towards the  wreckers of beauty and wilderness. Now I'm not so sure.  The initial devestation of a  logging operation is catastrophic  but compared to the inexorability  of nature it is a very small thing.  In a few hundred years no one  would be able to tell an area had  ever been logged. Generations  of giant trees would have come  and gone, roads broken up by  massive fir and cedar. "The  mills ofthe gods", etc., etc.  The wreckage I surveyed last  week, while guarding against  a cruder enemy, fire, was the  end of a long process. Years  ago, timber cruisers selected  wood lots for harvesting. Engineers tramped the forest to determine the best courses for  roads. Once surveyed, road  builders blasted and pushed rock  into roads, (the evidence of their  work can be seen in roadside  timber where blasted rocks are  imbedded three or four inches  into standing trees). Next came  the fallers who powersaw their  way through the forest, avoiding trees lining streams and  rivers. Trees are felled in patches; an area is not completely  logged over but living trees are  left around the patches of fallen  timber. Six months, a year,  sometimes two or three years  later, a steel spar, (tower) is set  up beside the road, adjacent to  the down timber and the rigging crew begins its harvest.  Guy lines are strung to support  the tower, rigging lines are run  through blocks at the back end  of the side, (logged area), and  Continued Page 3  I Coast News, August 2,1977.  tf-  r  WHERETO FIND  A COPY OF  THE COAST NEWS:  In Gibsons: The Co-op Food  Store, Ken's Lucky Dollar,  Village Store, Kruse Drugstore, Western Drugs, D.G.

IN YOUR MAIL BOX  Granthams water debate     The bomb  Editor:  1 am writing this letter to express my personal views on the  proposal issued by the Regional  Board to the Granthams Landing  Improvement District. Having  examined the pros and cons of  the present system and the Regional Board proposal, I have  reached the conclusion that we  are fools not to put our emotions  aside and think about what is  happening with an OPEN mind.  We should all be striving for  the same goal - the best possible  water system and fire protection  with the least cost.  To sum it briefly,*the!"Regional  Board is offering lis a completely  new. water system and full fire  protection for $89.40 per year.  They have informed me, their  budget indicates there would be  no increase of rates in the foreseeable future. Of this $89.40,  $50.40 would be paid with your  tax bill, and for many of the  people, the Homeowner grant  would absorb much of this cost.  The Regional Board has stated  that they do not want our assets,  which would leave our small  community with several lots,  a Community Hall, and our  healthy bank account intact. It  could be very advantageous for  a small town like ours to have  these assets and retain this  money to spend in our own community. Dom this Mem so bad?  In comparison, let us look at  the Granthams system. This system has served us well, and yes,  we do have excellent water. But,  let's face it, it is outdated. Even  if we could afford a new tank  (at a surcharge of $120 next year  SLINGS & ARROWS  Continued from Page 2  the trees are dragged to the  tower, loaded onto trucks to be  taken down to the beach, dumped, sorted and boomed for the  trip to the mill.  Even before the crew moves  on, the debris of rotting wood is  setting the process going again.  Next spring there will be fire-  weed on the side, the year after  tiny hemlock, spruce, fir or  balsam will spring up, planted by  nature or an unncessary human  hand. In forty or fifty years the  side will be ready to log again; if  a man still occupies the earth  and is inclined to harvest timber.  ' Given time, this piece of earth,  which was probably not seen by  more than a' handful of people  before it was logged, would be  in its completely natural and inaccessible state, as if no one had  been there at all. This garden  of the giants will be here forever  as long as no one kills anything  that won't come back. Those  loggers who think about it much  probably arrive at a similar conclusion, whether out of rationalization or an awe of nature.  I saw a man almost get killed  the other day, a casualty of the  war against the woods.

PLUS water rates) how are we  ever going to raise enough money  to upgrade lines, and offer fire  protection which is sadly lacking?  It just is not economically possible.  All I ask is for each and every  homeowner to stop and put this  whole situation into perspective.  Every homeowner must look at  both sides presented and reach  their own conclusions. They  should not be intimidated by their  neighbour pounding on their  door, trying to impose their  viewpoint on them.  In closing, I would like to  say whether you are pro or con for  'Regional takeover, that is your  perbgative; just be sure you have  made up your own mind and that  someone hasn't made it up for  you.  Anne Mundell  Granthams Landing  More  Editor:  The neutron bomb is the ultimate capitalist weapon. Kill  people, save property. That  great reformer, friend of the poor  and oppressed, U. S. President  Jimmy Carter sounds like a down  home psychopath when he calmly  talks about the need for such  nuclear madness.  It makes the introduction of  insidious cumulative genetic  deforming sprays almost seem  like a bracing tonic in comparison.

Editor:  About the proposed take over  of the Granthams water system  by Regional authority, can I  add my two bits worth on this  controversial subject?  The vote taken on April 23rd  appears to be of doubtful acceptability, and there is talk of a  referendum, complete with voters  list, proper ballots, the whole  bit. But before this takes place  we, the people, deserve to be  better informed.  On July 28th I attended a  meeting at the Regional office  to hear read a letter to them, and  their response to it. There were  about half a dozen Granthams  people, there, and we were given  a full picture of just what Regional propose, and why. Until  then I never really knew, and  I don't thank any of the others  did either, except one or two who  were trustees last year when  this thing started.  A General Meeting of GLID  is scheduled for August 13th.  Maybe it can be arranged to  have a Regional rep there, to  explain to those present what  they propose; then some exponent of GLID can say his piece.  After that, hopefully, a motion  that a referendum be held, say  no later than August 31st.  As a former Trustee of the  Granthams Landing Improvement  District this is what I would like  to see done.

Our next-door  neighbour in my boyhood village  ' of Islip, owned a film-projector  and on several occasions, we were  invited over to view the improbable misadventures of this early  animated character. Felix was  given to such surreal antics as  grabbing the question-mark that  appeared over his head in moments of perplexment and using  the crook of it as a hockey-stick  to bat the dot around. Ironically,  the kind-hearted man - who  showed us these slaphappy  films was to come to a sad end.  Dismissed by his company after  eighteen years service, he committed suicide. Of course, we  weren't aware of this tragic fact  at the time. We were simply informed the family had moved  away.  Since  Islip was  too  small  a  place to boast a movie theatre,  we had no other cinematic-exposure there.    Every so often, we  were sent to visit my Aunt Gladys  in London and were taken by her  to see such approved movies as  Snow White, Pinnochio and Gulliver's Travels.   I also remember <  seeing the Coronation of George ;  VI with all its pomp and pagentry. I  The main feature was a murder ���  mystery of some sort.   This was :  considered too adult for our ten- ���  der  sensibilities   and   we   were;  hustled  unwillingly  out  of the!  theatre. ���  ���  It wasn't until we reached the j  west^nd of Vancouver in 1940,:  that I really began to become j  aware of films.  Chris and I were:  introduced to the ritual of the!  Saturday  matinee  and  took  to  the practice like ducks to water.  We generally attended the Bay  Theatre where the programs were  prtty    much    kid-oriented    and  featured Andy Hardy movies and  Wallace Beery westerns.    I recall   seeing   Mrs.   Miniver   and  Pages  from a M fe-Log  Peter Trower  wondering over this Hollywood  recreation of Dunkirk and the  bomb-battered country we had  just escaped. Trygg Iversen,  soon to marry my mother, was  courting her at this time and  sometimes took Chris and I to  the Lux Theatre on Hastings  Street. The programs here  were slanted toward a wider  audience and somewhat less-  clean-cut. Here I saw my first  horror movie, a hair-raising potboiler called The Mummy's Tomb  that scared the wits out of me and  whetted my taste for more of  the same.  At the beginning of 1941,  Trygg and my mother were  married and we moved to the isolated and several-years-idle  pulpmill-town of Port Mellon. It  was our second radical transition  in six months but it was not unwelcome for the stay with our  Vancouver relatives had been  riddled with frictions and not  overly-pleasant. We took easily  to the freewheeling backwoods  environment and the easy ambience of the one-room school.  And we entered a whole new  phase of film-going.  In that brokendown hall  of pulpmilltown boyhood  a window opened  on another and another -  with intermissions between reels  the images took my head.  The images took my hand -  led me from brown wartime smells -  the effluvia of digesting trees  into the grey glow  where heroes moved unerringly  through ninety minutes of neverwas  plant crackling and rumbling in  the background. The films were  16 mm prints, frequently well-  worn and scratchy and shown on  a small, grubby screen that unrolled like a schoolroom map.  We kids sat on the hard front-row  benches close to the ghostly  action   and   we   relished   every  minute of it.  The films we watched were a  mixed lot to say the least. They  were shown twice a week on  Tuesdays and Fridays with matinees the following afternoon for  the shiftworkers. They ranged  from the lowliest of second-  features like the Mexican Spitfire series with Lupe Valez to  Class A productions such as  Destry Rides Again with Jimmy  Stewart and Charles Laughton in  the Hunchback of Notre Dame.  Mostly, they were of middling  quality. We never got to see  many of the really top films since  the distributor who serviced the  area, evidently had no franchise  to handle the product of either  M.G.M., Warner Bros, or Twentieth Century Fox. We were fed  almost exclusively, the films of  Paramount, Universal, Columbia  i and R.K.O. but we were happy  enough with them. They talked  and they moved and they entertained. We weren't much on  weighty philosophical concepts  in those simplistic times. We  preferred the action melodramas  and what we liked best about  them were the fight scenes.  The Universal pictures usually  had. the best brawls and we  gloried in the ersatz violence.  Much of our boyhood play in  volved acting-out these epic  set-tos when We weren't scrapping for real. I was as much a  fan of screen fist-fights as the  rest of my friends but as time  wore on, I began to get more  and more intrigued with the  whole business of movies and  moviemaking. I started buying  fan magazines like Screen Romances and Motion Picture despite the jibes of my companions  who considered such publications  fit only for women. The man who  booked the films and ran the  projector was also the plant-  electrician, a taciturn fellow in  his fifties by the name of Earl  Streeter. I took to hanging a-  round the electrical-shop and pestering him with questions. I  had some naive notion that he  was an expert on the subject  and considered him a sort of  minor hero but I think to Streeter,  it was mostly just a job. To get  rid of me, he let me put up the  garish posters and gave me the  trade journals and other promotional data, he received in the  mail. I pored over these bits  of "inside information" with  great intent. My brain began to  bristle with obscure facts and  statistics known only to' exhibitors. I felt secretly superior to  my friends who knew (or cared)  nothing of these things.  Thus began an obsession with  films and film-making that has  slackened little over the years.  The best of the movies I saw as  a boy, still show up occasionally  on television, reaffirming their  worth. The worst are long-consigned to the (lusty archives. of  memory. But the essence of  their images remains.  Actually "film-going" is too  high-falutin a term for it. They  were almost universally referred  to as "picture-shows" and we  watched them under the most  minimal of circumstances in a  tiny, tumbledown hall just west  of the mill  with  the recovery-  CAMpbcll's  FAMILY  SHOES  &  LEATHER GOODS  SUMMER  CLEARANCE 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.

General Outlook: Most of us  should have recovered from the  influences of the recent Full  Moon and we now look forward to  relatively calmer astrological  conditions. Ideas and projects  formulated this week should  eventually prove successful providing any deceptive elements  have been guarded against.  Those of you born around  March 4th, June 4th, Sept. 6th,  and December 5th may be feeling  vigorously idealistic and should  seek friendly. down-to-earth  advice if embarking on new ventures.  Babies born this week will  have a courageous and idealistic  mental outlook. Although very  independent, they will show  much affection for the home.  ARIES: (March 21 - April 19)  Ideas are discussed for making  the home environment more attractive and comfortable. A midweek muddle requires you to  clarify your intentions.  TAURUS: (April 20 - May 20)  Good news and happy visits  are highlighted. Others find you  more charming than usual.  Doubtful money making schemes  should be avoided.  GEMINI (May 21 - June 21)  The temptation to overspend  and acquire unnecessary items  is strong now. Restrain the urge  to rebuke a loved one who un-  knowlingly confused you.  CANCER: (June 22 - July 22)  Others will find you more  appealing and agreeable as  Venus moves into your sign this  month. Extra pride in one's  appearance will be felt. Sudden,  fascinating encounters will revive social life.  LEO: (July 23-Aug. 22)  Although many Leos are experiencing restrictions and delays, this week offers opportunities to go forward with plans  that have been deliberately held  back. Some will benefit from a  period of quiet seclusion.  VIRGO: (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)  Your usual obsession with  details and trivia is magnified  at this time and those closest to  you are liable to retaliate in  sheer exasperation. Refuse to be  taken advantage of, mid-week.  LIBRA: (Sept. 23 - Oct. 23)  The opportunity to bask in  glory will present itself soon but  beware the "Hangers on" intent  on grabbing an undeserved slice  of the pie. Mid-week messages  and correspondence are confusing and require personal  contact.  SCORPIO: (Oct. 24 - Nov. 22)  Emphasis on money. Financial  dealings should be double checked or postponed. Many will feel  the urge to enlighten the soul  and read accordingly.  SAGITTARIUS: (Nov. 23-Dec 21)  Mysteries, intrigues, and secrets will become more fascinating. Any opposition to long  range plans should be handled  gently.  CAPRICORN: (Dec 22-Jan 19)  A flash of insight confirms the  strength of your present hopes.  Relationships sweeten again.  Others are willing to help; so  smile and accept.  AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 ��� Feb. 18)  More agreeable arrangements  may now be discussed on the employment   scene   but   weekend,  social activities become confusing  through poor, hasty planning.  PISCES: (Feb. 19 - Mar. 20)  A long overdue social whirl  will do much to erase recent  domestic upsets. Your creative  talents are begging to be used.  Many will look up to you as a  source of inspiration.  Pub denied  At the Gibsons Harbour Business Association general meeting  held last Wednesday, Richard  Parker informed the gathering  that the initial application for a  permit to convert the old Doc  Ingles house in Gibsons into a  neighbourhood pub had been  turned down. The reasons given  were the close proximity of a  similar establishment and to the  highway. It was also felt that in  the winter time the location  could be dangerous. MTR  Holdings feel that the objections  raised can be overcome, as similar situations have come up in  other communities and had been  corrected.  The Sheep Look Up  John Brunner  Ballantine Books  There has been, of late, a  tendency in the communications  media to incorporate contemporary events into fiction. The  things one reads in the newspaper one day are likely to turn  up, rather quickly, on television,  or in the movies, or in books soon  after the event. A few months  ago, when "Legion Fever" was  in the news, I happened to turn  on a cop show on television.  Characters in the show were referring to the disease that had  recently made headlines, and  indeed, the whole plot revolved  around it.  John Brunner has used this  same technique in The Sheep  Look Up, a science fiction thriller  that will leave you gasping for  breath. Taking all the more  bizarre, frightening and deadly  aspects of modern life, he's rewritten them, and set them in the  near future. In essence, he's  saying: if these things are going  on now, think what they'll be  like in another ten years.  Perhaps   you    read    recently  about the "acid rains" they've  been having on the east coast.  Pollution from the central states,  from cars and industry, has been  rising into the atmosphere, and  drifting east.     When  it  rains,  the chemicals in the air mix with  the. precipitation,   and   already  the soil in the Maritimes is becoming   leached   by   the   rain.  Well,   in  The  Sheep  Look  Up  there are "acid rains" too, but  by this time they've become much  worse, and if you're unfortunate  enough to get caught in even so  much as a light drizzle, it will  ruin a suit of clothes in less than  five   minutes.       Perhaps,   too,  you've read about the pollution  of most of the major river systems.    In The Sheep Look Up,  the rivers have become so bad  that   there   are   "river   fires",  where   the   chemicals   floating  downstream ignite from time to  time.    For extra added effect,  there are also:    continuous epidemics that sweep through the  populace, by now immune to the  strongest antibiotics, cockroaches  and rats everywhere, that have  become impervious to any sort  of poison, terrorists that infect  their    victims    with     venereal  diseases,   drinking   water   that  causes madness, and an alarming  increase in birth defects.  The title of this book is taken  from Milton's Lyddas: "...The  hungry sheep look up, and are  not fed,/ But swoln with wind,  and the rank mist they draw,/  Rot inwardly, and foul contagion  spread." That pretty well sums  the thing up. It's not, as you may  have sensed, a very pleasant  book. It's full of doom and gloom  and dire predictions, and it  doesn't leave room for a whole  lot of hope. So if you're looking  for a nice quiet read, with a bit of  romance and nothing too heavy,  you'd be advised to keep away  from this one.  The characters in the thing  are not especially memorable,  nor are they meant to be. The  plot, which has for its focus the  rapid deterioration of the planet,  really has no need for in-depth  character analysis. Life in this  book is breaking down so quickly  that the characters don't have  time to do anything other than  react, and be victimized. You get  the feeling they don't stand a  chance.  Still, it's interesting to see how  they've coped with it. Health  food stores have become widespread, as the populace tries  desperately to eat only nourishing  food. Things like eggs are a  rarity, or fish, but if you're willing  to pay exhorbitant prices, you can  go down to the Puritan supermarket (owned by the syndicate)  and buy some. If you live in a  large city, and you can afford  them, you'll buy filter masks to  wear over your face when you're  outside. When you go to the  washroom, you have to pay for  water to wash with. All large  buildings are hermetically  sealed to keep out the rank atmosphere, and a broken window can  be very serious. Crime, as you  might expect, is even more widespread and there are guards  everywhere. People who can  afford it live in isolated, protected compounds.  In the midst of this, two conflicting forces in the society of  the future are hard at work.  "Prexy", the president of the  U.S. (where the book is located)  is always issuing trite statements.  His comment on a major defoliation project, in conjunction with  a small war the country is fighting, is: "Well, if you can't see  them, you can't shoot them."  Arrayed against Prexy are Austin  Train, and the "Trainites" - a  group of people who are trying  to save what's left of the landscape. They live in'wits'; which  are futuristic communes, and  with the aid of imported worms,  they try to grow healthy food.  They don't seem to stand much  of a chance. As a scientist says,  during a TV interview in the  book: "When the politicians  claim that the public isn't interested any longer in environmental  conservation, they're half right.  People are actually afraid to be  interested, because they suspect - I think rightly ��� that we'll  find if we dig deep enough that  we've gone so far beyond the  limits of what the planet will  tolerate that only a major catastrophe which cuts back our population and our ability to interfere with the natural biocycle  would offer a chance of survival."  This is an alarming, well-  written science fiction novel.  John Brunner has won a Hugo  Award for a previous book, and  it's clear that he has his craft  well in hand. But really, this  alarmist talk is going a bit far  isn't it? Surely the author is  getting carried away with all  this. We don't have to worry  about things like "river fires"  or "acid rains".

T_._ ...  -"-  By John Faustmann  A group of about ten high  school students are presently at  work restoring Seaview Cemetery. Working in conjunction  with a Manpower 'Young Canada  Works Programme', this is their  third week on the job. To date,  they've been responsible for  mowing the grass, which, when  they started, was more than three  feet high in places. They've also  been busy clearing out blackberry bushes, and tending to the  graves.  The job has brought the crew  together from locations all over  the Sunshine Coast, and two of  the students have come from as  far away as Kitimat, and Ontario.  They expressed pleasure at the  job they were doing, and said  that the nature of their work  had given them an historical  perspective on this area.    They .  were interested to see some of  the headstones that dated back  to the early part of the last century. The work didn't seem too  hard they said, and as one young  fellow mentioned: "At least  with this job the customers don't  complain."  Still, the cleanup programme  was instituted because of the  concern of some local citizens  about the state of the cemetery.  The students said that since  they'd been working, there,  several people who'd come to  visit the graves had told them  how pleased they were about the  job they were doing. Much of  the work is now completed, and  part of the crew will soon be  transferred to other work in the  area. It is expected that three  students will remain on the site  to continue maintenance there.  Editor's Note: The views expres  sed in this article are not necessarily those of the Coast News.  By Andy Randall  Robbie Burn's 'Address to the  Unco Guid, or The Rigidly Righteous', sets the tone for what I  aim to say in this column. And  my favourite verses are:- 'Then  gently scan your brother man,  Still gentler sister woman; Tho'  they may gang a kennin wrang,  To step aside is human: One point  must still be greatly dark, The  moving WHY they do it; And just  as lamely can ye mark, How far  perhaps they rue it.  Who made the heart, 'tis He  alone-Decidedly can try us; He  knows each chord, its various  tone, Each spring, its various  bias: Then at the balance let's  be mute, We never can adjust  it; What's done we" partly may  compute, But know not what's  resisted.' Amen. Robbie!  Robbie would have made the  finest preacher today, for his nigh  divine love and tolerance for  humankind might just be accepted. Might? Yes. Those among  us who have more than a smidgin'  of the Rigidly Righteous could  simply freeze out a warm-hearted  and outgoing Robbie. And all because of our stereotyped education and training in Christian  ethics and behaviour that has  molded us in predictable patterns  from early childhood to manhood  and womanhood.  Nor is this condition confined  to regular churchgoers. You can  meet it often enough among the  "great-unwashed" outside.  Symptoms of this condition are:  a fanatical to passive acceptance  of the bible as a sort of sacred cow  that must be worshipped, or die  (faithwise).   An almost monastic  adherence to all doctrines laid  down by Christian leaders of  the first two centuries after  Christ's resurrection. There are  others, but that will serve for the  moment.  Now to consider what Burns  would wholeheartedly commend,  freethinking. And how's this for  a starter? Many great scholars,  this includes hosts of biblical  scholars, are convinced that the  massive collection of books and  letters (actually a library) called  The Holy Bible were written by  men whose inspiration was often  no greater than Handel's when he  composed the glorious music of  The Messiah. With that in mind  we can follow the whole structure  of say, the Old Testament with  a much clearer understanding  once it is shorn of its awesome  claims of Divine participation in  the lives of "His chosen people"  the Jews. The freethinker can  see a typical example of the  slanting history of a race of  people, that is if he or she has  become alert and broadminded  enough to understand that all  histories are slanted, biased can  be used here too, towards the  nationalistic flag-wavers of whatever country the authors belong  to.  Who else but Adam would be  the first Jew? And Adam only  meant Man. The evolution of the  idea of God from one all-terrible,  vindictive, cruel, one Whose  nature seemed to change according to the victories or defeats  of the Israelites, come to the  ultimate and loving Fatherhood,  as taught by a preacher such as  the world has never seen since,  Jesus Christ.  It is strange that His simple  doctrine of love has too often  been obscured, diluted, sometimes distorted, by even those  who profess to be The Christians  of our time. So we are back to  the Rigidly Righteous who fanatically believe they alone have  "The Keys To The Kingdom".  I like to think, Robbie Burns and  many of us freethinkers will get  free entry through those golden  gates.

The letter also  mentioned, however, that the  residents were not in favour of  giving the board ownership of  the lots occupied by the water  storage tanks.  With a proposed 600 foot wide  hydro right-of-way slated to be  pushed through to Pender Harbour, Mr. Tom Perry's letter to  the board complaining about the  continuation of spraying was  timely.  The proposed line would  run along the drainage for the  area and the boaid felt that  Hydro should come up with a  better solution to the problem  of keeping down the underbrush  rather than continuing spraying.  Director Peterson said that he  had attended a meeting of the  Coast Garibaldi Health Unit  and was impressed by the concern shown about spraying. The  Health Unit will be running extensive soil and water tests in  the Port Mellon area where Hydro  have been issued a permit to  spray.

The bride is. the daughter of  Mr. and Mrs. Vernon Hodson of  Gibsons. She was given away by  her father.  Lynda was radiant in a floor  length gown of white chiffon.  The princess waist, high collar,  long sleeves and ruffles were  trimmed with satin and daisy  lace which was also carried out  on the full length three tiered  cathedral veil. She carried a  trailing bouquet of white roses  and white carnations.  Her maid of honor was the  groom's elder sister, Sharon.  His younger sister Joanne was  bridesmaid. Both girls were  dressed in long yellow chiffon  dresses with matching yellow  roses in their hair. They carried  nosegays of yellow roses and'  white carnations with long white  lace ribbons.  Her little flower girl was  Tisha Koch. She wore"a miniature replica of the bride's gown  and carried a white basket of  yellow carnations. The bridegroom is the son of Mr. and Mrs.  Peter Fromager of Roberts Creek.  Best man was Stephen's oldest  brother David, and head usher  was his brother Mark. The men  were all dressed in camel brown  tuxedos with dark brown trim.  Junior ushers were the groom's  youngest brother John and the  bride's -young   brother   Terry.  They, along with the young ring  bearer, Sammy Jay, wore champagne tuxedo jackets With black  pants and bow ties.  The impressive but simple  ceremony was conducted by the  Rev.

Many of the wedding photos  were taken in Cliff Gilker Park  which was named after the  groom's grandfather.  At the reception in Gibsons  Legion Hall, the guest book was  beautifully graced with a banquet  of yellow roses and was capably  handled by the bride's brother,  Glen.  The 160 guests were greeted  by   the   parents   of  the   young  couple.  Mrs. Hodson was lovely ^  in   her   long   sea   foam   green .

Trucks hauling  gravel from the pit up behind, the),  mill rumble past with a steady'*  regularity, and the yard near the  mill is filled with logs, and all the  different kinds of machinery used  to get them there. It's a small  mill, but the Stockwell family,  who own the place, have been in  the business, on and off, for the  last forty years.  It all began in the 1930's, when  Homer Stockwell arrived in the  area from Ontario, working his  way out west through Michigan,  and eventually ending up in Porpoise Bay. He was one of the old  broad-axe experts, a man who  hewed timbers by hand before  there was a machine that could do  the job. He traded some mill  equipment for thirty-seven acres  of land, and he set up a shop  with a water wheel that supplied  power for a twelve volt system.  Herb, his son, worked with his  father during those years. When  they weren't milling lumber, they  logged in the area, once as far  away as Desolation Sound. Their  mill turned out both rough and  dressed lumber, and a great  many houses between Sechelt  and Gibsons were built with wood  that they produced. They also  milled stringers for the old plank  logging roads. .Homer made  cabinets as well, and on the lathe  ���powered by his water wheel, he  ,4tumedr put r fine quality oars..-  "Herb got his first mill from a  place called Owl Creek, up near  Squamish. "I got my first mill  from the Dominion Fisheries,"  says Herb. "They were going to  sell it, and I was lucky enough to  get it. Or unlucky enough.  Sometimes I wonder which.''  Herb says he's retired now,  but you wouldn't suspect it from  the way he gets around. He still  keeps his hand in, and helps keep  an eye on things while his son,  Ray, runs most of the business.  Ray took time out from helping  to repair a front end loader to  talk to us. He described his mill  ^^WW^gfWiff/jW/U7^/  ever  YOU CAN WIN - PRIZES,PRIZES,PRIZES  Anyone can catch a dog fish!

It wasn't really  economical to run a small mill,  he said, and projected tiiat they  wasted about fifteen percent of  the wood they used, which ended  up as slabs, bark or sawdust.  "You either stay small, or go for  a million dollars," said Ray, and  from the look of things, it seemed  as though the million dollars  would have to wait.  But a mill of this size does  fulfill a certain need for the community. Ray fills specified orders  that the larger mills won't do,  and just recently he provided the  beams and a lot ofthe other wood  for the Ibbitson's new log house  on the. highway. ,t Ray also logs,  and clears land when he isn't  busy milling lumber. He gets his  wood from as far away as Halfmoon Bay, mostly red cedar and  fir, but there is also a stack of  yellow cedar in the yard. White  pine is his favourite wood, he  adds, and he has some of that,  too. Looking around the place,  Ray speculates that it's not a bad  life. He's more or less independent, and as he says about the  mill: "It's a nice hobby, whenever you need a board you go  cut one."  Later, talking to Ray's dad,  and his mother Dorothy, it  seemed they were all fairly  pleased, living there on part of  the original 37 acres that is still  their home. Or, as Herb Stock-  well would say, talking about  their life: "Well, we never got  rich, but we've always been  pretty happy."

(Pardon me  Pierre, Canada Day!) The idea  was to keep Brian company and  help him to cope with about six  youngsters. You see, Brian  Partridge and Cindy Frykas are  the two supervisors for the Sunshine Coast Regional District  Summer Activities Program. It's  for young people from ages 6 to  18 and operates in Gibsons,  Sechelt and Pender Harbour.  Brian and Cindy are in charge of  the Gibsons branch of the operation and do a good job at Elphinstone where the program is centred from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.  weekdays.  However, on this particular  day/the ferry left at the unseemly  hour of 6:00 a.m. (groan!). Ferries may come and ferries may  go, runs may change, cafeterias  alter, but one thing is as fixed as  the pole star - the coffee is  terrible! But at least it woke me  up. Brian, Cindy and I seated  ourselves in the lounge of the  ferry as it ploughed towards  Horseshoe Bay. "Bri," I groaned, "How can you ?tand to get  !< up this early?"  i '-/'Dedication, �� strength and  clean living," he answered.  "And he's getting paid for it,"  "put in Cindy. "Where's your  lunch?" asked Brian, changing  the topic hurriedly. "Oh, I  brought a sandwich, but I'll get  the rest from the store on Bowen."  "You sure it's open?"  "It's always open, Bri."  As we cycled off the Bowen  Island Ferry on our way to Tun-  stall Bay I noticed the bike I  had borrowed for the occasion  was a touch big, so.I swapped  bikes with Brian. We got to the  store. It was closed. "Brian it-it  can't be closed!" I whimpered.  Brian doubled up with laughter.  "What's so funny?" I snapped,  "I have to eat a cheese sandwich and wash it down with sea  water!" "You silly duffer,"  laughed Brian,   "Of course it's  CALL 886-7311 ��� NOW FOR FREE ESTIMATES  NEW CONSTRUCTION  ��� Siding ��� Soffit ��� Fascias  ��� Gutters ��� Rainmaker Goods  RENOVATION  ��� Siding ��� Soffit ��� Fascias  ��� Gutters ��� Rainmaker Goods  ��� Storm Doors and Windows.

Well what do  you know?  Soon, however, we were speeding on our way to Tunstall Bay.  Unfortunately, almost all of the  journey seemed up hill. "If I  go up another hill" puffed an  angry young voice, "I'm gonna  rupture something, and it ain't  gonna be a tire!" "Shut up,"  observed Brian, "You're not old  enough to know what that means  anyway," I said.  The last mile or so was downhill and I tried to shift out of  first, it wouldn't go. As Brian  sped past I cried out, "Brian, it  won't shift out of first." "I  know." he called back - for some  reason he was laughing again.  We finally got back from Tunstall Bay (where we tried to  crash a private yacht club and got  no further than the front door),  at about 3 o'clock and waited for  the ferry. Immediately, a cloud  of youngsters decended on Brian  stealing his hat, his bike, and his  temper. As one of the little  darlings pulled at his hair and  another playfully went about  fracturing his shins, I leaned over  to Brian and remarked, "Just  think Bri, only two months to  go!" Brian groaned and doubled  up into a ball. It was gratefully  that Brian, Mike (another chape-  rone) and I sank down into the  padded seats ofthe upper lounge  on the Queen of Nanaimo bound  for Langdale. I at least was  grateful for the padded seat, I  had just about busted my tail  bone on that bike.  One thing, that bothered me  was a comment, from a young  "man" (and I use that term  loosely) as I decended the stairs  to my awaiting bike. "Damned  tourist," he said.  Tourist? Tourist? Me? True,  I was dressed in tennis shorts,  track jacket, and T-shirt. But still  I couldn't figure it out. Maybe  it was because of the way I had  closed the stairway door in his  face. Yes, maybe that was it!  Anyway, Brian and Cindy are  still up at Elphinstone doing  their-job. If you have any spare  time this summer, drop by and  see them. I'm sure they'd like  to see you.

Devlin  owner-manager  Devlin Funeral Home  1665 Seaview Rd.,  Gibsons      886-9551  Cablevision  illegality  The Aldergrove B.C. weekly  newspaper 'Central Fraser Valley  Star' recently carried a story by  Constable Rick Scott of die RCMP. We reprint It here for the  Interest of our readers*  Here's a pointer that not too  many people are aware of concerning cablevision, a service in  our society that we can almost  take for granted, particularly in  urban areas. .  Cablevision services are* particularly in hew residential subdivisions, being installed as a part  of the major services such as  hydro and telephone, whether  they be underground or on overhead lines.  Now while the cablevision service is there, it cannot be legally  connected unless that function  is performed, upon request from  a resident, by the cablevision  company.  Under Section 287 of the Criminal Code of Canada, which is  theft of telecommunication service, it is an offence to intentionally and deliberately', take such  a service which is not that person's to obtain.  The punishment for this offence is the same for theft of any  kind. Where the value of what is  stolen exceeds $200 a person is  liable to ten years imprisonment  or six months imprisonment and/  or a $500 fine.  The offence of shoplifting  carries the same penalties and is  comparable to theft of telecommunications service inasmuch as  the business must cover its  losses by increasing the cost to  the consumer.  Rose and Heather Tea  The Annual Summer Tea of  Mt. Elphinstone Chapter Order of  the Eastern Star convened by  Mrs. Muriel Eggins was held  at the Masonic Hall grounds,  Roberts Creek. Attractively  decorated tea tables, mouth  watering homecooking, along  with booths that dared one to  bypass them, added to the sunny  day, smiling patrons and a successful afternoon.  As Mrs. Grace Cumming,  Grand Rep. of Utah stated after  being introduced by Worthy  Matron Mrs. Mary Gordon, the  tea is one of the two annual fund .  raising projects this non profit  organization holds annually.  Proceeds are divided between  Retarded Children's Society,  Cancer Institute, Save the Children Fund, local and provincial  scholarship   funds    and    other  needy causes.  The members of this organization wish .to thank the public  ' for their support in assisting them  to help those who are less fortunate, by their attendance at  the tea. They look forward to  future association with all. They  also wish to thank Bethel.28 Jobs  Daughters for assisting in serving *  at the tea.  Winners of the draws were as  follows: Worth Matrons Draw;  First -' J. Donnelly, Second,  Muriel Eggins. Past Matrons  Draw: First - Kathy Clark, second  Scotty dog: L. Shields. Hampers:  First - Bob Leask, second, Joan  Quarry, third - B. Gibbons,  forth, B. Rankin, Smarties candies - -Dorothy Loucks, Powell  River. Cherries - Ruth Mac-  Intyre, Powell River.  Harmony Hall  showed up, I guess a lot of people  are not interested or are away on  holiday, so much for the turnout.

A Pender Ratepayer's Report  The beach in front of the Bonniebrook Lodge is paradise enough for these children seen  frolicking in the sea and the sun in last week's summer heat.  Letters from Toba Inlet  By Margot Schachte  A few moments of sunshine.  Amazing after the huge torrents  of rain we've,had for so long it  seems like ever. Last night we  all watched the creek running  thick and muddy, knowing the  logging road was landing at the  bottom of the bay; laughing  helplessly about it. Thick bullet  drops that bounced noisily off  this trailer all night long, and  here I am in a small patch of sunlight. Shocked.  Bert caught a Ling cod, a red  snapper, and three rock cod  (rock FISH my -dad would say)  last night off the boomsticks.  Lots of fish and chips for dinner  tonight.  Sandy was up a couple of days  ago with a friend of his. They  built a porch onto Ron and Audrey's place in about four hours!  I couldn't believe it. Sandy is  coming in again this afternoon  with a load of groceries and other  stuff for the camp. Audrey and  the two kids are coming too. I  hope.he's bringing a globe for  the coleman, so we can get some  light in our place. I sure have  bad luck  with that  lamp;   I've  already broken two mantles and  a globe on it. I'm so clumsy.  Joe keeps looking over the tiny  two room shack up behind our  place. He wants to fix it up and  bring his old lady up here to  live with him. The whole place is  about the size of a roomy bathroom, so it's kind of funny to  see him look it over so hopefully.  We've been having an awful  lot- of trouble with our radio  phone, and a few days ago Joe's  girlfriend phoned. We heard her  put her money in the phone, and  settle everything with the operator, then she started to talk to  Joe. "Joe?" she said. "Joe,  can you hear me?" she tried  again. Joe could hear her alright,  but she couldn't hear him. Joe  could hear her so well that he  was going crazy not being able  to talk to her. We all had a good  laugh over that, while he was  pacing around in the rain. He  was so mad you could almost see  the steam pouring off him. He  walked everywhere there is to  walk in this camp at least twice,  and then disappeared into the  bunkhouse.  This weekend we were bom  barded with tourists. A couple  in their thirties decided to tie  their boat to the boomsticks for  the night. After a while they  got out of their boat and started  to walk along towards shore..  The log they were on rolled a bit.  They both fell over, and the guy  was moaning about his leg.  We all had a good laugh over  that too; meanwhile Rob had to  go over and give them a ride  back to their boat, as they were  scared to walk.' We could tell  that the guy must have been successful at something, as he had  ah expensive boat: we only had  trouble figuring out what. They  left the next day after Bert moved  the boomsticks which had trapped  them against the shore, as they  had decided to change the propeller just as the tide began swinging the sticks over. Our only  hope is that after such a wonderful stay with the crew at Tobba  Caedar they won't go home and  tell their boating partners what  a great place it is. ,  Well, Sandy should be here on  schedule pretty soon, so I'll  try to get the pilot to mail this  forme.  New approach called for in Pender  ��� The Pender Harbour and  District Ratepayer's Association  called for /wore study of facts  and less argument based on  "personal preferences and assumptions" in a brief submitted  to the Pender Harbour Settlement Plan Committee Wednesday.  - The brief followed reports that  the Planning Committee is stalemated between factions supporting firmer control   of  develop  ment, particularly in ecologically  sensitive areas such as the head  of the Harbour and around Garden Bay Lake, and those who  want to give developers a freer  reign. Meetings frequently  degenerate into shouting matches, it is said, and the Committee's method of proceeding  is anything but methodical.  The Ratepayer brief pointed  out that, because the plan will  have an important effect on the  r  Record a.

The first  stage, it said, must be to obtain  ���"the best and most reliable information" with regard to the  community's problems and  needs. The next stage must be  to make this information known  to the public through letters,  meetings and news reports,  because people cannot be asked  to make up their minds in ignorance. The third stage would then  be to carefully survey people's  opinions using surveys and questionnaires. The brief concludes,  "Only when this work is done  can the committee finalize plan  proposals which truly reflect the  'considered wish' of the community."  The brief also noted that the  experience of other communities  has shown this process to take  over two years, and urged that  no effort be made to finalize the  Settlement Plan before November  1978.  v*^**************************************************^  I  *  *  7*  .'���*  I  I  *  ^****-f***������******** **��*������������*����������**��***************  If Sea Cavalcade is a  smash for you  and your car -  AOT0 etoY  will fix it up  for you.  BBB-7.93  This column marks the first of  what the Pender Harbour and  District Ratepayers Association  hopes will become a regular  series. Our main subject will  naturally be the local issues that  concern our members, but we will  try to work in a bit of news and  gossip where we have it and  where it fits.  The Pender and District Ratepayers Association was first  started in the Sixties to deal with  the issue of zoning and working  with Jim Tyner it succeeded in  obtaining the R III zoning that  seemed to satisfy the area's  needs of the time, although it is  generally felt now to leave the  area too open to exploitation and  abuse by developers. Probably  the Associations' greatest accomplishment however was the establishment ofthe Pender Harbour  Medical Clinic, which began as  a Ratepayer project and was  continued as such up until the  formation of the Health Clinic  Society.  After solving those two problems the Association passed into  a period of relative inactivity  and "low profile". Today however, we find ourselves surrounded by a number of problems that  seem to call for the attention of  an active organization representing the interests of the area's  homeowners, tenants, and ordinary people. To this end the  Association has sought to bring  in some "fresh blood" and at  our recent general meeting three  new faces were elected to the  executive: Joe Harrison as  president, Howard White as  secretary-treasurer, and Evans  Hermon as director. A number of  committees are also being set  up to deal with memberships,  planning, the environment,  and publicity, all of which will  bring in new help from outside  the executive itself. Anyone with  an interest in either of these  concerns is invited to participate  and can offer their services by  phoning the president at 883-  9958.  At the first meeting under the  new executive held Wednesday,  July 26th, it was decided that  the two most important issues  facing the areas are the two old  ones, planning and the clinic,  although there are some new  twists.  Planning: The most important  development in the area of planning has of course been the advent of the community plan, or  "Pender Harbour Official Settlement Plan", which is being  drawn up by an 8-member committee appointed by Regional  Director Jack Patterson. There  has been legislation on the books  under the Municipal Act providing for such plans for several  years but the new minister Hugh  Curtis has given the idea fresh  impetus and pressured the Regional Districts to have them  drawn up in all areas of the province. Once completed and proclaimed by order-in-council they  will become very important documents indeed, forming a basis  for all Regional District zoning  bylaws and a guide for all senior  government actions affecting the  area.  The plan currently being drawn  up affects only the immediate  Pender Harbour area although it  bears watching by Egmont and  Middlepoint residents because  it will likely set the pattern for  plans to follow in those areas.  The Ratepayers' executive has  a number of misgivings about  the way the community plan has  gone up to this point. The first  draft, while containing many  worthwhile proposals, is so open  in its approach to development  that it has been described as a  "developer's dream". It makes  provision for condominiums',  multiple storey buildings, and  cluster developments on small  lots in spite of the fact area residents petitioned strongly against  this type of development when it  was planned on the Indian Islands  Marina site. And in spite of the  fact that most of this area's resi-  ents would like to keep the com- '  munity as much as possible the  way it is, the plan makes provision for a theoretical population  in the immediate Pender environs  Summerfun Program for  young people offered  at three Coast centres  By John Faustmann  Sponsored by the Sunshine  Coast Community Resource  Society, Summerfun is a planned  programme of activities for all  ages. With three centres on the  coast - in Gibsons, Roberts Creek  and Sechelt, Summerfun is active  five days a week (Monday to  Friday) from nine in the morning  until four in the afternoon. With  staff and facilities for: soccer,  drama, baseball, tennis, gymnastics, floor hockey, badminton,  arts and crafts and swimming,  the programme, which is free,  will continue until September  2nd.  To date, Summerfun has been  most successful with the 'Bantam' age group - those from six  to twelve years of age. Twenty  children from each of the above  communites have been attending  the sessions, and having a wonderful time. Aside from the  games   and  facilities  available,  the children have taken several  outings. Geoff Madoc-Jones, a  local teacher, has taken groups  on various hikes and camping  trips, and more of these are  planned as the summer continues. Fran Ovens, another  volunteer, has been teaching the  arts and crafts classes.  Outings take place on Fridays.  There's already been one trip  into Stanley Park for the day.  Another will be happening soon -  with visits to the aquarium, the  children's train ride, and the  children's zoo. Morris Biddle,  overall co-ordinator for the programme, says that he'd like to  include older kids, and adults,  in the activities. To this end,  afternoon jogging groups may be  formed, and an Aerobics dance  class is getting underway. For  further information, Mr. Biddle  can be contacted at 885-3611, or  a   886-9257,  evenings.  after   five   in   the  We handle I.C.B.C. claims.

Even if it is  true, as Olli Sladey pointed out  at the first community plan meeting, that only half the land so  opened is usable, a population of  38,500 is still provided for and  we feel this is entirely inappropriate.  In discussions at both of the  last two executive meetings many  Ratepayer directors have expressed the feeling that this  inappropriately "boosterish"  attitude in the plan as so far  drafted reflects a similar inap-  propriateness in the makeup of  the committee as appointed by  Mr. Patterson. They point out  that Pender Harbour-Egmont  area has come out firmly against  3 development-boosting stance  every time it has been given the  opportunity to express itself on  the question. In every Regional  District election held so far there  has been a developer-oriented  candidate opposed to a control-  oriented candidate and in each  case the developer candidate has  lost by wide margins. Patterson  himself ran against a candidate  clearly identified as a developer  and with the backing of the Ratepayers Association won by a  margin of 2 to 1. Taking indica-  ' tors such as this, and not ignoring  provincial election trends either,  it is clear that the area is not  split 50-50 on the question of  development or control, and the  argument follows that a planning  committee so split does not  accurately represent the feeling  of the area. Patterson's judgement is further called into question by the fact that the committee as he originally appointed it  was even more heavily weighted  toward the developer side, and  several directors have suggested  Mr. Patterson be asked to explain  his thinking on this matter.  We will deal with the Medical  Clinic next week.

Theatre School Active  ��� �� The Gibsons School of Theatre  Dance reports that the 1976/77  working year was most interesting. Students were invited to  perform at various community  events from Gibsons to Pender  Harbour and thoroughly enjoyed  doing so. Two workshops were  held during the year, involving  guest teachers of ballet, aero-  batic, naponal-character and contemporary dance. Also this  spring, dance students took part  in their very first festival, the  Sunshine Coast Music, Drama  and Dance festival and benefitted  greatly from the experience.  A total of thirty-two candidates  were entered for examinations  this year, of which twenty-nine  were successful. Results as  follows:  Ballet: Examiner Miss Anne  Gordon of the Canadian Dance  Teachers' Association.  ' June 3rd, 1977 at the Twilight  Theatre.

We  are thinking of having a baby to  bring us closer to feel more part  of each other. Do you advise  this move?  Uncertain Mother  Dear Uncertain:  I've heard this plan hundreds  of times. The most divisive thing  for a teetering marriage is a  child. It takes a good marriage  and well adjusted people to add  such an engaging and demanding  third party to the home. You're  never alone again for years -  your meals and sleep are interup-  ted as a rule, part of the time anyway. Sex has to be scheduled  after, hopefully! the baby is  asleep - if you aren't too tired.  The tiredness and anxiety of new  mothers tends to make a husband  feel left out and sometimes looks  elsewhere for companionship.  Straighten out your lives and  work on the harmony and understanding of your relationship.  Then add a child, the world is  over-populated and its going to  hold you down and if you do  separate, it's very hard on a  child with only one parent who  may have to leave it to go to work.  Really think about it, this is no  doll for your amusement, but a  real little person.  Dear Ann:  Your tips for being attractive  and appealing to the opposite  sex are OK, I read them all but  what happens when they work?  I have worried about having relations with a man these days  because of Herpes or that incurable venereal disease particularly, when the man is here,  there, and everywhere. How  does one protect themselves on  spontaneous occasions?  Leary  Dear Leary:  I am glad to hear you are!  I don't think that's enough  though, most unexpected intercourse seems to happen in spots  where there is no opportunity  for preparation, also while one or  both parties are loose and drinking. It tends to make caution a  thing thrown to the winds. I  guess the only thing is the unpleasant safety prophylactic,  etc. Keep them in purse or billfold. If you can't control your  actions prepare an emergency  kit and carry it at all times you  may be in danger, even at lunch  breaks. Seriously, do be aware  that one episode can have a lifetime effect.  P.S. The person that thought  the septic tank ad under my  column signficant: Thanks for  your interest, but be more specific in your criticism.  Lockstead reports from Legislature  The Estimates of the Ministry  of Highways and Public Works  were up last week. Individual  departmental estimates give  M.L.A.'s an opportunity to raise  points that directly affect their  constituencies. It is an unique  opportunity to question the minister responsible in hope of getting  straight answers.  I raised a number of points  during Mr. Fraser's estimates.  Among them was the condition  and upkeep, of Highway 101,  between Halfmoon Bay and  Earls Cove on the Sunshine  Coast. It is obvious to all residents of that area the highway  is in need of reconstruction. This  need not be a major project,  but more something spread out  over a number of years. There  is no reason that the Department of Highways could not  undertake to do five or six miles  a year with the hope of completely  rebuilding the highway within  ten years.  Another topic I covered with  the minister is the state of the  food service on the Queen of  Sechelt, which I personally ride  at least once a week. The food  coming from machines on-board  is literally inedible. The minister  replied that he is aware of the  situation, and that improvements  will be forthcoming.  On the question of ferries I  brought up a couple of other  points with the minister in regard to free passage for seniors  throughout the week and the free  passage of certain groups such  as school bands, Scouts, Guides,  sports 'groups, etc. There is no  reason that this can't happen,  seeing as the ferries are operating  at 20 to 40 percent capacity most  of the time. There is no lack of  room on the ferry, and it is my  hope that the government will  see the advisability of allowing  free passage for seniors all week  around and providing they give  adequate notice to the ferry  people.  We now have what is called a  commuter card for residents of  the Sunshine Coast - Powell  River area. Those cards are  recognized on B.C. Ferry runs  but not on those under the jurisdiction of the Ministry of Highways. There is no reason for  that, and I pressed the minister  for a commitment that he would  recognize those commuter cards.  Mr. Fraser did say that he would  look at the situation and get  back to the house with an answer  as soon as possible.  Fish Talk  by Gerry Ward  A species of fish not often seen  in the amateur tanks is the Botia  species. These fish include the  Clown Ldach, or Botia Macrantha  which is one of the most active of  the Botia species. The Clown  Loach is peaceful, and if kept in  pairs or schools, may be seen  grubbing in the gravel or hidden  places for food, and seemingly  always together.  The Clown Loach's home  waters are found in Sumatra,  Borneo and the Sunda Islands,  and the bottom of these waters is  of a loamy nature. The fish has  not been bred in captivity as far  as I know. This is probably why  they sell for a higher price than  other aquarium fishes. The  Clowns as mentioned earlier are  peaceful, the are also quite hardy  as long as the water is well  aerated,   and   is  kept  close   to  neutral,   keep  the   temperature  under 76 degrees F.  In the wilds the Clown Loach  will grow to six inches but in  the aquarium seldom exceeds  four inches. When placed in  the aquarium the colours become  pronounced when a green background of plants is there. These  fish have a yellowish red coloured  body with three vertical black  bands, and red fins. Their body  shape is long and the back is  curved with the belly region being  almost straight, the tail fin is  quite large and strong so the fish  can move fast. Their sole form  of defense is a spine which is  located just under the eyes, it  cannot be seen easily but if the  fish is violently disturbed, such  as being caught in a net, it will  spring these spines out so they  lie pointing outwards, and can, if  your hand is too close, give a good  stab. The sex differences cannot  be seen even amongst a school of  Clown Loaches.  If possible, live food should  be given occasionally, but the  conventional flake foods, and  freeze dried foods . are readily  accepted. Because of their  size these fish should have a good  sized aquarium, no less than  twenty gallons, and it should have  some sunken wood or flower  pots placed on the side, so the  fish can hide at times.  If you have bigger fish the  Clown Loach can be put witii  them, if bought at medium or  large size, or they can be placed  with fish such as guppies. If  properly cared for these fish will  live quite a number of years and  grace your tank with colour as  well as cleaning up,any leftover  food that gets to the bottom.  Even though the price of these  fish is high, they are well worth  the investment.  Nutrition notes  Question:.   What is unbleached  flour?  Answer: The final stage of production of white flour is bleaching  and/or maturing of the flour.  This process renders the flour  white and improves its' baking  quality. Unbleached flour has  not been subjected to this treatment and therefore retains its  yellowish color. Baked bread  from this unbleached flour has  a somewhat lower volume and  less fine texture. Whichever  kind of white flour you choose,  make sure that it is enriched.  Question: I know there is caffeine  in coffee, but I have recently  heard that tea contains nearly  as much caffeine as coffee. Is  this true?  Answer: Tea leaves contain  about 2 - 4% Caffeine by weight,  while coffee beans contain only  1 - 2% by weight. However,  when this is translated into milligrams of caffeine per ounce,  brewed coffee contains about  12-20 milligrams per ounce  and tea about 12 - 15 milligrams  per ounce, depending on the  strength of brew.  Question: I have bought small  jars of commercial baby food by  the case. How long will these  keep?  Answer: The length of time baby  food can be stored unopened  (usually called shelf-life) would  depend upon the storage conditions and the type of food.  However, as a general guide  these foods would be safe to use  for up to one year after the date  of manufacturing. There may be  some deterioration in the quality  of the food, especially flavour,  within that time; as with any  canned food it would be preferable to use it within a few months  of purchase.
