 LEGISLATIVE LIBRARY,  Parliament Buildings  VICTORIA, B.C. V8V 1X4.  Members of  first meeting  the public  of Council  crowded into  since Gibsons  the Open House meeting of Gibsons Town Council. It was the:  became a town. ���judnii wason phote'  . The inaugural meeting of the  town council of Gibsons was  launched last week with a suc-  ~ cessful Open House. A large  group of interested residents  toured the municipal offices  and were treated to coffee and  cake before crowding the council chamber for the regular  ���' 'meeting.  The increased borrowing  power which council now  possesses by virtue of the  .altered status of Gibsons, is  enabling council to apply to  Victoria for permission to borrow $410,000. This will be used  to purchase a newfiretruck and  to construct a new fire hall.  - A.by-law introduced last  Tuesday evening will allow  ^ council to apply to hold a  - referendum on February 12th,  ' to seek public approval for this  *" plan. The amount borrowed  ^ will be cost shared through the  ' West Howe Sound Fire Protection District with'a roughly-  ,50/50 split between the  township and the regional  ' district on repayment.  - Applications for land which  has accreted by tidal action to  lots on the Gibsons bay in the  vicjnity of the new hotel resort  development, were received by  council. Council was concerned because the land included  the sewer line and the area for  the proposed sea-walk. It was  agreed to inform the Ministry  of Lands that council's reply  was in the negative because it  wished to retain control of the  sewer line. However, council is  still prepared to negotiate with  the hotel developers over the  applications, if their development permit is approved.  Alderman Marshall reported  considerable damage to waterfront areas from the recent  heavy storms. He mentioned  that the Franklin Beach rip-rap  wall in particular was "a real  mess". The owner of the first  property concerned has been  approached about the clean-up  and the matter will be brought  up at next Monday's planning  meeting.  Marshall also commended  the council work crews for their  fine job of ditch clearing, as  there were no flooding problems in spite of the heavy rain.  The Ministry of Highways  has indicated that there is suffi  cient traffic at the Shaw Road  and Highway 101 intersection  to warrant installation of  pedestrian regulated traffic  signals. The town will be ex--  pected to pay half the installation cost of $15,000.  Council granted permission  to the Kinsmen Club to" hold its;  annual Mothers' March campaign -from January 24th to  February 1st. The march will be-  conducted by volunteers on a  door-to-door basis. The pro-f;;  ceeds are used to provide a wide  range of services to the  physically disabled of B.C.  At;: the conclusion of the ;  meeting, Mayor:l Goddard ';,  thanked all those who had at- ;  tended. From the floor, a resi-U;  dent returned thanks, praisedO  the beautiful building; jn-fT"  eluding the "trash machines' t.  and commented that the;  mayor's clean desk was a good- '���'-  omen for a clean slate for the;  future.  He concluded by}  gallantly stating that While the  new Town of Gibsons plaque  was beautiful, it was exceeded  by the attractiveness of the'  mayor who had presided over!  the evening. }  The Sunshine  Published on the Sunshine Coast      25* per copy on neWs stands  January 17, 1983 Volume 37 Number 3  Prosecutions take place  SCRD by-laws  are given teeth  Violations c*f the Sunshine  Coast Regional District's Land  Use Regulations by-law 96 have  met with stern penalties recently, as the Crown Prosecutor's  off ice,has. charged .violators  with numerous counts on tnese  offences.  The Land Use Regulation  by-law specifies the use of properties by owners within the  regional district, making it illegal to set up commercial or industrial operations in areas  zoned residential.  Since the case of a Roberts  Creek metal fabricator last  summer, who pled guilty to  charges of contravening by-law  96, fines have increased  substantially.  Last October, a sawmill  operator, who was in contravention of by-law 96, was  charged with 30 counts of  breaking the by-law. The  Crown Prosecutor, Tony  Rowley, accepted guilty pleas  on four of the counts and the  man was fined $100 on each  count.  . Last week, a business in West  Sechelt which was in contravention of the by-Jaw was  fined $900 by Judge J.S.P.  Johnson who, according to  Rowley, is following the principle that .to deter violators, any  profit made through the viola-  Fishermen  seek Pearse  alternative  v Fishermen from a variety of  gear organizations and from  N every area of the coast will  gather here January 21 for a  three-day conference to discuss  the recommendations; of the  Pearse Report on the fishing industry.  '. The three-day conference,  which begins January 21 at 7:30  p.m. in the Dogwood Room at  the Pacific National Exhibition, is the culmination of a  Unique series of meetings held  iji coastal communities since  tjie report's release which involved more than 1,200 people.  J Sponsored by organizations  as diverse as the United  Fishermen and Allied Workers  Union, the Pacific Trollers  Association, the Gulf Trollers  Association, the Native '  Brotherhood, the Pacific Coast  Salmon Seiners and various  tribal councils and civic  groups, the meetings elected  local committees to review the  report and to attempt to  develop alternatives. This conference is the culmination of  their work.  tions of the by-law must be  charged in fines. In the case of  the West Sechelt business, $900  had been made in profit and  $900 was levied in fines. In this  case^ a husband and wife were,  charged wiUi/^8-counts eacfo  and the judge levied a $2$rfirfe  on each count, for a total of  $900. A co-defendent in the  case did not appear in court and  a warrant for his arrest has been  issued.  "The SCRD does not enforce its by-laws frivolously,"  Crown Prosecutor Rowley told  the Coast News. He said that  charges are not laid unless  violators persist in breaking the  by-law even after they are  warned by SCRD officials.  The maximum penalty on  each count, which means the  number of days the by-law continues to be contravened, is  $200.  In Areas B and E  SCRD approves  larger lots  Gordon and Rene Mcllwrath reported this 'seal' on the rocks in  front of their home in Roberts Creek. It was light brown in colour  and seemed partially paralysed. Killer whales were also seen in the  area about the same time.  ���John Burnside photo  Object to hotel  Ray residents besieged  by development plans  A group of approximately  twenty Bay Area residents of  Gibsons were in attendance at a  public hearing held on Monday, January 10th, to discuss  the proposed change in zoning  in the area to allow for construction of a 'destination  resort' hotel in the area. Also in  attendance were Mayor Lorraine Goddard of the town of  Gibsons, alderman Larry  Labonte and planner Rob  Buchan and developers of the  project Jon McRae and Art  McGuihness.  Speaking first for the  residents of the area, Pat  Braithwaite told the hearing:  " Residents in the Bay area have  been living under siege for  years. We have raised our  children in the area, but it  seems that no one is safe from  the developer. It doesn't seem  to matter if the people protest.  It happens everywhere in the  world and it is disheartening  that" it is happening in  Gibsons."  Questions from other  residents determined that the  proposed hotel would be 146  feet wide, the full width of Lots  5, 6, and 7 of District Lot 685;  that it would have a liquor  licence and that a high wall  would be built to keep noise  levels down.  Former alderman Stu Metcalfe, speaking in support of  council and the re-zoning, said  that the hotel would be better  than a 'garbage collection area'  in reference to the long-tfought  battle between Gibsons council  and Bob Kelly, whose property  is now owned by the  developers. Mrs. Joan Boulton  also spoke in favour of the re-  zbning and the development,  saying that it was the 'right  location for a hotel'.  Area resident Dave Harrison  told the hearing: "Everybody  keeps talking about the  tourists, but nobody seems to  care about the residents of this  town."  Another Bay Area resident,  Mrs. Mavis Wilson, questioned  the effect of a hotel construc-  , tion on the traffic situation.  "From my kitchen  Window," said Mrs. Wilson, "I  see dozens of near accidents,  with cars coming onto this narrow road from the Post Office.  I can't imagine what the situation will be if we. have a hotel  access right nearby."  Mrs. Wilson also said that  there was little motivation for  house upkeep in the area, when  the future seemed so uncertain  and that she was not enthused  about the possibility of another  liquor licence in the area.  Frank Braithwaite questioned the town's plans for a boardwalk, in light of the fact that the  hotel developers had acquired  accretion rights on the ocean  front right to the high water  ��� mark,/  "Are they going to have a  wall right to the water line?"  wondered Braithwaite. He also  point out the extreme swampy  nature of the ground in the area  and questioned the feasibility  of the proposed underground  parking. "The ground here is  so swampy that, if a backhoe  comes down here, my house  shakes," said Braithwaite.  "What's going to happen during construction?" ���  "Our dream house on the  beach in the west seems  somewhat different with a concrete wall and a discotheque  right alongside," said  Braithwaite.  ' - The    Sunshine    Coast  Regional Board voted last week  to downzone lot sizes in Area B  (Halfmoon Bay) and Area E  (Gower Point).  The new zoning in Area B  f.prqvjdes for a 'J' zoning which t  ^giVes an .average lot size of jpne-^  half acre; the * new zoning in  Area E, 'K' zoning, gives an  average lot size of one-third  acre. In both areas, lot size  previously had -been one-  quarter acre.  In the voting on the Area B  downzoning, only newly-  elected regional director for  Area B, Pat Murphy, voted in  the negative.  "I am against downzoning in  principle," said Murphy.  People moving here should  have the right to buy what they  like."  Apparently the fact that the  Area B Community Plan calls  for one-half acre lots and that  public hearings had seemed to  indicate a clear preference by  residents for the larger lot size  to preserve the rural nature of  the area, persuaded the other  regional directors to vote  against Murphy.  In Area E, the vote was much  closer. In weighted balloting,  Directors Murphy, Vaughan,  and Alternate Director Jack  Marsden, voted against the  downzoning, causing a tie vote.  Chairman Of the regional  board, Mayor Lorraine God--  dard of Gibsons, cast the tie-";  breaking vote. :  "I am opposed to downzon-'  ing in principle," said Mayor  Goddard, "but in this case I,  feel my vote should represent  - what I feel are the wishes of the'  majority of people' in the  area."  Koch  resigns  Citing the heed to attend to  his business; Sechelt mayor-*  Bud Koch, owner of Sunshine]  GM, resigned from village*  council last week. His resigna-  tion came as a surprise to"  members of council.  Alderman Joyce Kolibas.  also announced that she will,  resign her position after the by-  election, in order to run for  mayor.  Both aldermen Ken;  Short and Harvey Bist expressed support for Mrs. Kolibas'  intentionsVs;r.;:fc/:,>;"....'' ; .  The by-electibh: to fill the;  seat made vacant by the Koch  resignation will be held on;  Saturday,    March    19th.  Nominations close Friday,  March 4th.  Alderman Robert Allen, the!  deputy mayor, will continue as i  acting mayor until the by-;  election.  mmmmmmmmm  mmmmmm  Creek makes plans  Area D director, Brett  McGillivray, announced at last  Thursday's meeting of the Sunshine Coast Regional District  the appointment of an official  Roberts Creek Area Planning  Committee.  Margret Arbuckle, Bruce  Mosely, Denis Davidson and  Tom Grant will serve terms of  two years. Appointed for a  term of one year were Colin  Cole, Harry Almond, Gail  Cromie and Denis Fitzgerald.  Schools budget meeting  The public is invited to a special budget meeting of the  school board Of School District No. 46.  The meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, January 26th,  at 7:30 p.m. in the school board offices in Gibsons.  This special meeting will review the annual educational  budget in this area.  Shaske on Gambier  Director for Area F, John Shaske, will meet with the people of Gambier Island on Saturday, January 22nd, in the Army, Navy, and Airforce Club Hall on Gambier Island at  1:00 p.m.  Shaske will be discussing with island residents issues of  concern to the islanders.  Sechelt traffic safer  Figures released by the Sechelt RCMP detachment reveal  that they, too, have found a trend towards safer driving on  the Sunshine Coast.  In 1982, the total number of accidents in the area served by  that detachment fell to 293 from the 349 recorded in 1981.  Injuries resulting from traffic accidents numbered 59 in  1982, down from the 69 in 1981. In both years, there was one  recorded fatality.  Total damages from accidents in 1982 in the Sechelt area  amounted to $756,000.  iinniinii|��lBMU|iiiim��  mm  M!WMItiW"��Mm��WH  % Coast News, January 17,1983  What are we to make of the fact that Canadian  businessmen and Canadian public officials openly urged  the Prime Minister not to discuss the issue of human  rights during his visit to President Marcos of the Philippines, reputedly the leader of one of the most brutally  repressive regimes in the world?  What kind of double standard are we applying in our  views oh human rights? In Poland, the imposition of  martial law and the jailing of leaders of the Solidarity  union provoke cries of outrage from the Western press.  In Central America, a campaign of apparent genocidal  intent is waged against the Indian population with scarcely a whimper from the same press which finds the incarceration of Poles a cause for such lamentation.  By all accounts, the regime of President Marcos does  not stop at incarceration of dissidents, but we prefer not  to discuss the matter with him, lest it affect our business  prospects.  Couple these international discrepancies with increasing cynicism and hypocrisy on the domestic scene.  Trudeau's appointment of his friend Michael Pitfield to  the Senate comes to mind; then there is the provincial  government's bail-out of the Whistler Ski Development,  after months of declaring it had no money for hospitals  and schools.  It is becoming obvious that the Western democracies  stand in danger of becoming a bigger threat to themselves  than the Communists, or even the Fascists, have ever  been able to mount. The concept of the dignity of the individual is central to the freedom which we prize and  which we feel makes our way of life superior to any  known alternative. But again and again, domestically  and internationally, our government, and Canada is not  alone in this, turns a blind eye to actions which run  counter to everything that the West professes to stand  for.  Is it that the Poles are northern whites that we cry out  for their anguish, while virtually ignoring the far greater  oppression of the Central American Indians?  Are we to celebrate the fact that the totalitarian Marcos  has agreed to buy Canadian plutonium at the urging of  our Prime Minister?  A principled position  A nice illustration of important differences in the interpretation of the responsibilities of elected representatives r  was offered in the deliberations of the regional board last  week.  The issue was downzoning, or changing the designation of zoned land to allow fewer units per acre. In the  vote on downzoning in Halfmoon Bay, director Pat Murphy stood alone in opposition, despite the fact that  downzoning was called for in the Community Plan and  public hearings seemed to have a clear majority in favour  of it.  In voting on downzoning in Area F, Mayor Lorraine  Goddard cast a tie-breaking vote in favour of downzoning in her capacity as chairman. Mayor Goddard, like  Murphy, is philosophically opposed to downzoning, but i;  feltit was the wish of the majority. I  The difference is that Murphy ������ and he is not alone in Y  this ���sees the election to o ffice as the mandate to manage  according to his own views; Goddard sees election to office as the mandate to represent the views of the majority.  We favour the Goddard interpretation of elected  responsibility and congratulate her on her principled action.  ...from the files of the COAST NEWS  5 YEARS AGO  Not   available   this  week.  10 YEARS AGO  Total value listed on  56 building permits for  Gibsons municipality  during 1972 was  $683,710.

The three-storey structure  was known as Beach House when it was built for Alfred and  Henrietta Whitaker in 1905-1906, on The Boulevard where Driftwood Inn stands now. The .Union Steamship Co. purchased the  private home in 1926 and operated it as an hotel annex and later as  Sechelt Inn until 1952, when they sold the business to Mrs. Florence  "Manny" Duncan.

It seems certain, everiito  the layman, that the means by  which we relate to the ocean's  bounty is going to be vastly different by the end of this century.  I may perhaps be forgiven if I  draw the analogy early in these  musings between < the  harvesting of, say, sajirion and  the slaughter of bison which  once seemed innumerable on  the plains of North America.  Increased sophistication iri the  methods of killing and an un-  bridlecl utilization of those  methods caused the near extinction of the bison and the  disappearance of a way of life  which had relied on the animal.  Many fishermen along the  coast of British Columbia have  realized that responsibility  must be taken for the dwindling  stocks of salmon and they are  participating in Salmori  Enhancement programmes in  many parts of the coast.  At the same time, they are  upset by the qualified support  that the Pearse Report gives to  the concept of salmon ranching. As a lettef from a fisherman points out in this week's  paper, there is a crucial difference between fish farming  and ocean ranching. The fish  reared in ocean farms are retained in nets and killed when  they reach the weight, in the  case of salmon, of, about one  pound or one-and-a-half  pounds. In ocean ranching, the  fish reared in nets and pens are  released into the ocean and can  be harvested on their return to  their spawnirig area. It is  analogous to free-ranging beef  cattle, hence the term 'ocean  ranching'..  What seems principally to  upset the fishermen of B.C. is  the experience of fishermen in  Oregon, where the giant  salmon-ranching project being  run by the Weyerhauser Corporation has had the effect of  drastically reducing stocks of  native fish and severely limiting  the amount of fishing that  fishermen are allowed to do.  Local fishermen, quite rightly, fear that the Oregon experience will be repeated locally. That, as was the case in the  logging industry, control of a  natural resource will fall into  v:-*$-.  the hands of a few giant corporations which will be left free  to exploit it for maximum profit, unmindful of the future of  the  resource,   or  of the  livelihoods which will be lost  through capital intensive, low  labour methods of harvesting.  Fishermen are thus caught in  something of a cleft stick. Most  of them who have been fishing  for years know that the fish  aren't there in the numbers that  they-used to be, and are concerned [and : willing, ^pr;partticU,  pat^.in; wise jmanagernent. At  the same time, they, have a low  opinion of the bureaucrats of  the Fisheries Department and  they fear that the proposals  of the Pearse Report will  deprive them of their means of  support, without providing  them with an alternative, and  without doing anything significant to improve the number  and quality of the fishing  stocks.,  There is nothing in their experience of bureaucratic  management of fishing stocks,  or in their perception of  government as favouring  mega-projects by giant corporations, over the well-being  of the little man, which would  lead them to trust in the future.  And, just south of here, they  have the example of the  Weyerhauser experiment in  ocean ranching, which bids fair  to be a disaster.  The fishermen and their incomes are of major importance  to the economic life of most  coastal communities; the well-  being of the fish is of concern to  them and to all of us. It is a  puzzling and a difficult time. In  the next week or so, I'll try to  convey some of the perspectives that I have picked up in  conversations around the coast  and this newspaper welcomes  input from all sources on this  crucial matter.  decade before an accidental fire on July 20, 1963 rendered the  building uninhabitable.

' ' -".-'  Maryanne's    viewpoint  Education a cause  for public concern  by Maryanne West  A brief presented to the  School Board at its last meeting  opened with the comment that  these "concerns might be more  appropriately presented to the  Provincial Government".  They have to be, if we want  to maintain a standard of  education for our children  which is geared to the learning  needs of individuals.  The concerns of the Sechelt  community expressed at that  meeting saved the Indian  cultural programme for the  time being, but in fact only put  off the eventual day of reckoning. The secretary-treasurer  was heard to remind not only  trustees, but all of us, that the,  district is riot allowed to run up  a deficit and therefore saving  one job now will put two in  jeopardy in September.  When the next cut comes,  there will again be valid reasons  why the programme should be  kept, parents and those closely  concerned will be up in arms,  but sooner or later the cold  facts will have to be faced and  the budget balanced. Which is  of course how life is.  That there are problems in  the school system is not denied.  Even with unlimited funds it  would be impossible to be all  things to all people, but those  who think with the Provincial  Government that a return to  basics will solve the problems,  are oversimplifying a complex  issue. Governments like simple, black and white approaches to issues. They can  rally behind slogans such as  ���back to basics��� which,  although addressing one facet  of a problem, cannot possibly  reach an overall solution.  To give the Government the  benefit of the doubt, perhaps '.  that's all that's being heard ���.'  just get back to those simpler ^  days of 'reading, 'riting and .  'rithmetic' recited by those who':  look only through the rear view, ',  mirror. And that's our fault.

Governments are no dif-..  ferent from the rest of us. They ;.���  only oil the wheels which pro-;,  test loudly. Those who have,,  vested interests have learnt this ,.  lesson long ago and are"  represented by lobbies in the;.  halls of power around the  world.  One of the most encouraging  happenings of 1982 was of peo-,  pie taking to the streets to  demonstrate by the millions  their desire for survival and an  end to living under the threat of  nuclear annihilation.  We live in a democracy, and  we're never tired of telling'  ourselves what a far superior  system it is to any other. It only :  functions if we all do our parts :  to keep those we've elected ;  aware of our priorities. We!  may yet have to take to the-  streets,  but let's try letter  writing first. Not just one of-!  two carefully written briefs/'  but a whole barrage of letters  from those who care.  The Dead  These hearts were woven of human joys and cares,  Washed marvellously with sorrow, swift to mirth.  The years had giyeh them kindness.

Jack and Jill Playschool is a  parent participation playschool, which simply means a  certain amount of parent participation is required to keep  our monthly rates so much  lower than the privately run  facilities. Jack and Jill  Playschool is licensed by the  Community Care Facilities  Licensing Act and must  observe the regulations set by  the Council of Parent Participation Playschools in B.C.  to retain its license.  One of these requirements  states that"All assisting  parents will have ten hours of  preliminary training or orientation, monthly parent education  and regular in-service (duty  day) training by qualified  supervisors". Only one parent  need attend, the General  Meetings which, besides providing the required parent  educations informs the parents  of what is going on in the school  arid gives them the opportunity  to Voice their concerns arid vote  on all issues.  During registration, a  Parent's Agreement is signed,  acknowledging all of the requirements by the playschool.  With reference to attending the  General Meetings, it is clearly.  stated that if two meetings are  missed, the executive may request the withdrawal of the  child.  4 happen to know that this  was a very difficult decision for  our Personnel Committee to  make, when it's really the child  that loses, but we do have a  responsibility to the rest of our  membership.

One of these  reminders was made during  registration, due to the high  number of meetings missed last  year. Mr. and Mrs. McHeffey  were also invited to present  their reasons for missing the  three meetings (out of four)  and, if the reasons had been acceptable, they would still be  members of the playschool.  I would like to suggest that it  was the lack of responsibility  on the part of Mr.: and Mrs.  McHeffey that "broke their  four-year-old's heart". If it  weren't for our'"busybody  housewives" and a few other  workers from our membership,  this playschool would either  shut down or become an expensive privately run facility and  we'd all lose.  Respectfully,  Jeanette Robinson,  President, Jack arid Jill  Playschool  A matter of  definition  "Chak-Chak"  I am writing with regard to a  recent article of yours in the!  Coast News. In this article you  described what you termed1  Ocean Ranching, and could not  understand why fishermen are  against this method of rearing  salmon. Please permit me to  give you two definitions:  1) Oceari Ranching: Releasing young salmon to the sea  and harvesting them on their  return as adult fish.  2) Mariculture,  or Pen v  Rearing: Placing salmon fry in  enclosed pens, and rearing  them in those pens until they  are ready for market.  Mariculture is a completely  acceptable form of salmon pro-  duction, and is what you  described in your article.  Ocean Ranching has been attempted in the state of Oregon,  and has been a dismal failure.  Stocks have, been diseased,  resulting in the wiping out of  wild stocks. Commercial  trollers have been cut to 12 days  of coho fishirig in the year.  Sports>fishermen have only a  five month season.  It is for this reason that we  dread seeing Ocean Ranching  taking place in this country.  Thank you for taking the  time to read this. If you would  like more information on this, I  would be glad to discuss it with  you. Just give me a call at hoirie  - my number is 886-7956.  Rick Rottluff  NEED WELDING  REPAIRS DONE?

The programme was mainly  music, ranging from Dianne  Evan's classical piano pieces to  the Karmazyh brothers' ditties  for the kids.  The show was intended for  the kids and they loved it. They  lined the front of the stage and  some even ventured out on it  themselves.  It was a chance for the kids  and adults alike to see and hear  many talented���..Creekersiithe  Morgans, Neil MacKerizie, the  '��� Crowe Road gang, "Hahle and  the Lollipops", and Ken  Dalgleish. Crowning the evening was a special appearance by  none other than Mr. Roberts  Creek. And speaking of local  luminaries, Pat Muryn's flaming baton-twirling was really  something!  All in all it was a good night  and the feeling carried on afterward at the little Legion.  Dianne Evans did a good job of  organizing and she would like  to extend a big thank you to  everyone who helped..  She'd like to thank all the  performers, especially Ken  Dalgleish who not only played  for half the show but did the  sound and stage management.  Another big thank you goes to  King Anderson for doing-the  lighting and to Sam Dill and Ed  Lands who helped him. And  thanks also to Colleen De Graf  and all the people who baked  goodies.

The sale will be held from 11  a.m.  to  3  p.m.  right  in  downtown Roberts Creek (next  to the Store)  LEGION INSTALLATION:  Zone Commanders Les  Brown and Sylvia Brown were  at the Roberts Creek Legion  last Wednesday to install the  new executives of the branch  and the Ladies Auxiliary.  HALF ACRE LOTS:    r >r  Word quickly passed around  Redrooffs last Thursday that a  decision of importance to the  residents of the area was about  to be made at the Sunshine  Coast Regional District  meeting last night. It was regarding final adoption of a zone  change proposal which called  for minimum half acre lots for  new developments on certain  specified portions of the  Redrooffs area. This had been  agreed upon at public hearings  and on the Area B Settlement  Plan some time ago. :"���  There was great concern  when it was learned that our  new representative, Pat Murphy, had made it known tha! he  intended voting against the outcome of these hearings.  However, despite the fact that  he proceeded to vote according  to his own feelings on the matter there were sufficient board  members who had 'listenedand  had paid attention to the voice  of the majority of the people,  and the vote went iri favour of  the half acre zoning.  It must be difficult for board  members to make such important decisions when they are  under such great pressure from  two very strong groups���those  who are in the development and  real estate business and those  who are fighting to maintain  the rural atmosphere as laid but  in their settlement plans. Let us  hope that this first important  vote by our representative is  not an indication of where we  can expect his tendencies to lie  in the future and that his ears  will become more in,tune with  the majority of the people he is  there to represent,  v       :a��  In this area we are fortunate  in having many residents w;ho  are on the alert and are aware of  what is taking place on the Ideal  political scene,' ^therwise^we  would not have even krio^vn  that the matter was comingliip  for vote; ( ���      -MOOi ���  EDUCATIONAL MEETINJG:  ., On Tuesday, January 1 l^^the  school board held its educational meeting at Halfmoon  jBay^SciicibL David Shpr��&ex-  tended ����� welcome to the school  board, parents and visitqrs.  L'o r e n e T a y 1 o r a n d t h e  kindergarten children gave a  presentation entitled"What  We Have Learned In  Kindergarten".  Diana Gruner, a member of  the Parent Advisory Group, introduced the parents in this  group. Parents Had an opportunity to ask questions of the  board and to meet with them  over coffee. Friends of Lorene  Taylor were saddened to learn  of the sudden death recently of  Lorene's father in Ontario;  A PLEA FOR HELP:  The Welcome Beach Mori-  day Carpet Bowling is in a bit of  trouble right now and would  like some help. As most of you  know, Keith Comyn was the  one who for the past 10 years  liad organized the carpet bowling. Now it would appear that  Olive is left to carry on this  function on her own, and this  she cannot do. So, if any of you  carpet bowlers or prospective  bowlers would be willing to  lend Olive a hand she would be  very happy to hear from you at  885-2378 and she would be able  to get the ball rolling again  every'Monday afternoon at the  hall.  A reminder that Friday,  January 21 at 7 p.m. is Family  Film Night at the hall with the  showing of "Charlotte's  Web".  The Halfmoon Bay Recreation Committee is having a  dance at, the hall on Saturday,  January 22. Tickets are $5 each  and can be purchased at The  Book Store or at the Halfmoon  Bay Store. Theme for the dance  is a "January Good Times  Dance" which means that you  can't go unless you plan to have  a good time. Peter Williamson  will be providing taped music  of the rock type which should  please, all you young rockers in  the area.  Proceeds from the dance will  go to help purchase equipment  for the pre-school classes which  at e at the halleach Tuesday and  Thursday mornings from 9:30  till 11:30. Seems that these sessions are just great and that  there, is still room for a few  more kids. Might be worthwhile to drop by one morning  to'see what a good time the wee  ones have.  Marcy Welsh of Redrooffs is  now a patient at Lions Gate  Hospital'.following a most un-  fortuante accident last week.  Our good wishes go out to Marcy along with our hopes that she  will soon be on the road to  recovery.  Have heard too that Jean  Petite is back home recovering  from recent surgery and that  Jack is also doing just fine. Best  wishes to you both from all of  us on Redrooffs.  Had an interesting call from  a lady the other day who had  spotted a flight of robins having a good feed of berries from  a tree in her yard���then they  were gone.

President is  Lome Smith; vice-president  Vince Perreca; secretary Art  Plunkett and-treasurer Harold  Lennox. Their scheduled  meetings are the 4th,Monday of  each month.

Also,  by M. Richter  The Sunshine Coast Scholarship, Bursary and Loan Society  held its annual meeting on  December 13th, 1982. Income  for the year 1982 was $8,784.81  and was the sum of donations  from individuals and organizations, loan repayments and interest on funds awaiting dispersal. $5,000 was paid out in  awards to local students entering or continuing with post-  secondary education. $3,575  was issed in new loans. Including registration costs for  the Societies Act and the Income Tax Act, the cost of administration was only $64.93.  As well, the Society administers some capital funds  which produce annual bursaries that have been set up as  memorials. These special accounts are in honour of  Margaret Lamb, R.N., Gordon Booth, Roland Kerbis,  Marnie Jamieson, Muriel  Neilseri and the Inglis ,  Memorial Fund.  The officers for 1983 are Bea  Rankin,  treasurer;   June  , Wilson, secretary; Moira  Richter, president and Bill  Forst, vice-president.  1983 will be a difficult year  for young people and for a  Society dedicated to help them  with their 'education. Loan  repayments .are of necessity  slower, interest on invested  funds is down from the past,  two years, and young people re-'  quire more education at higher  cost to compete in the job  market.  It is the hope of the Bursary  and Loan Society that the com- v  munity will continue to support  it in its efforts to enable  graduates of our high schools  to further their education.

After a half season of  burning, it's probably a good  time to inspect your chimneys  and flues, as there could be  quite a build-up already.  , It's heartwarming to see the  number of people who have  taken home the free heart  stickers from the Gulf station.  In a case of a fire, it really lets  the firemen know if a child or  disabled person might be in difficulties.  : ,jr~.: ������ ��  ANNUAL STORE WIDE  20%  �� OFF  i   ���  Everything in the Store  BOOKS,  SCHOOL SUPPLIES,  STATIONERY  & SOUVENIRS  Jan. 17th - Jan. 22nd  ]*> **4 a/3Csr*w^^  PRICES EFFECTIVE: WED JAN 19 - SAT JAN 22  PEOPLE  COME FIRST AT  IER  '���Mraii:'0'-:]-:b^o/-;,(;'      . v"'.-:'  PARKAY MARGARINE.    3 ib 1.99  Kelloggs -. _^  CORNFLAKES...    ...675 g 1.79  CHEERJOS...:':    ...300g1.39  Royal City  VEGETABLES ...... 14 oz .69  French, or cut green beans,  cream style or kernel corn  Dad's  COOKIES 450 g 1.79  Cocoanut, oatmeal, chocolate chip  & choc, chip oatmeal  Betty Crocker  HAMBURGER HELPER     _ 1.29  Betty Crocker Super Moist  CAKE MIX    I.G.A.

Steve Larsen photo  Gwen    in    Gibsons  Ferry service can  be fought for  by Gwen Robertson  Do we, as residents of the  Sunshine Coast, want to pay  the cost of a suitable ferry service? '   -0\,.,  As I see it, the cost would be:  1. Increased ferry fares - we  have that already.  2. Install our own ferry service and make it pay, perhaps  with a (a) fast food service or no  food, if this would not pay, (b)  courier service, (c) crafts  booths in summer, (d)  restaurant and/or pleasant  waiting rooms.  3. Accept one of the two  alternatives offered hy the  government: (a) installation of  a penitentiary, or (b) iristalla-:  tion of a dumping ground, and  put up with the whims of a  government with regard to  scheduling and charges.  4.Have the ferry service  become an extension of  Highway 101, thereby including the Federal as well as  the Provincial government in  the maintenance of the ferry  system and the highway.  5. My last proposal, which  has already been made, is for a  class action against the Provincial government (B.C. Ferry  Corporation) by the residents  of the Sunshine Coast.  For those who are not aware  of what is involved in a class action, a large group of aggrieved  people would secure the services of a lawyer, or team of  lawyers, and institute action  against a company, such as the  B.C. Ferry Corporation. The  cost would be considerable for  an individual, but negligible if  the whole of the Sunshine  Coast was. involved.  Since the Sunshine Coast has  a resident group of lawmakers,  (who already have a clear  understanding of the problems  involved), it should be possible  to gather this group together into a team, that would explore  the feasibility of,such a plan of  action. "^-<.c  We cannot rely on protests  alone to keep our highway-  open, particularly when it involves our livelihood. It is a fact ,  of life that the Sunshine Coast  cannot sustain itself. We expect  to pay more for the privilege of  living here, but how much?  Those who are on FixecL-;ih- ���  comes may -not! care; whether  the ferries run or not, but even  they will be affected if the cost  of their goods and services is  escalated by the drifting away  of families who are the main  users of these services, and  thereby keep the costs down.  We need a highway to the  mainland (be it ferry or bridge),  but we need it. We need  tourists, too, to keep the money  flowing. We are not an island  and we do not wish to be that  isolated - or do we?  It is up to us to take positive  action. Up to now we have only  responded to action taken by  B.C. Ferries.  Editor's Note: On Sunday,  January 23, Tony Greenfield is  leading a one-day course for  Continuing Education entitled  'Winter Birds of the Sunsitine  Coast'. Those interested  should meet at the government  wharf, Porpoise Bay, at 10  a.m. Participation is free-  binoculars are mandatory.  by Tony Greenfield  Coastal British Columbia,  Christmas bird counts have a  habit of falling on abyssmally  bad days for counting birds,  and the 1982 Sunshine Coast  count on December 18 picked  one of the worst ever. There  was a short period of relative  calm soon after daylight, but  after that it was all downhill  Rain was intermittent in tlie  Sechelt area, with more of the  rain than the intermittent,  while John Hind-Smith in the  Langdale-Port Mellon area  reported constant rain. In the .  arly afternoon, Barry Janyk  and I were attempting to scope  birds at Mission Point in the  face of a 30 knot south-easter  and heavy rain. With raindrops,  on our glasses, binoculars, and  telescope, the telescope bobbing in the wind, and our teeth  chattering, whilst the flock of  Surf Scoters disappeared in the  troughs of the wayes, we pursued our hobby with a sense of  duty rather than joy. The  debate still rages whether there  were 199 or 200 Surf Scoters iri  that flock! /"^  In the late afternoon I was in  the cut-over area across from  the Langdale ferry terminal;;  and the wind was at its most  ferocious, gusting to 50-60;;  knots. In one particularly^  severe gust, trees and branches  were falling all around me. At  that point I decided to abandon  my search for birds for fear of  becoming a statistic myself.  _So, we did not have good  weather for the count, "neither  did\we have a good turnout-  Our count conflicted with two  others in the Vancouver region  that day, so we had to rely on  pur owresonrc^y(T^  ;:t^��dug iBro^grj; of ;:y^ux^oti^r  : formakinjpthetripi to ifteCvt&t^  to help us out.) Consequeriitiyi:  those people who did, pair-5  ticipate were thinly spreadover  the count circle, stretching  from West Sechelt to Port  Mellon. Coverage of the count  circle was much more cursory  and sporadic than what we  achieved last year:  The net result of all this���the  inclement weather and reduced  coverage���was, of course, that  we found less birds of fewer  species than last year. I believe  last year's total of 84 species on  count day is close to the maximum we can ever expect in our  count circle.  Our total this year of 67  species is very similar to out  average count viz:���  No.  No. In  Year    Species  dividuals Weather  1979           69  4530   Heavy  rain,  snowj wind  1980           70  5075   Heavy rain  1981           84  7419   Clear  1982           67  . 5725    Rain, wind  '0-  Film starts season  at Arts Centre  Gibsons  Public library  Hours:  .  Tuesday  2-4 pm  Wednesday  10:30-4 pm  Thursday  2-4 pm  7-9 pm  | Saturday  2-4 pm  There are no exhibitions at  the Sunshine Coast Arts Centre  during January, due to renovation work to the interior of the  gallery. However, on January  .29th is the first of a series of  Saturday film nights. Organized by Keith Wallace, these  films will be a mixed bag of  highly entertaining movies you  always wanted to see twice.  The first film is "Nashville",  Robert Airman's view of the  tempestuous and crazy Country and Western scene. It's a  classic, with great performances by Geraldine Chaplin,  Shelley Duval and Keith Car-  radine. Come and be entertain-^  ed - everyone welcome.  Time: Saturday, January  29th, 8:00 p.m. Price: $3.00,  $1.50 OAP and students.  The dominant feature of the  count this year was the absolute  scarcity of passerines, birds of  the woodland and brushy  areas. Much of this was obviously weather related,  although people have expressed a feeling that these birds  have been scarcer than usual all  winter. Evidence of this trend is  the extremely low counts of  such common species as Winter  Wren, Rufous-sided Towhee,  Fox and Song Sparrows. In the  woods, we saw no woodpeckers  at all (excluding Flicker), only  two Varied Thrushes, one flock  of Pine Siskins, arid the only  Steller's Jay reported all week  was one by Dorothy Bracewell  ather feeder.  On the positive side we had  a high count of 836 Western  Grebes. John Hind-Smith and  Doug Brown saw 74 Great Blue  Herons near a heronry in Port  Mellon. Katie Angermeyer was  fortunate to see a/lock of 75  Oldsquaw and a total of 33 Ancient Murrelets (which were  new to our count) on the ocean /  near Bonniebrook. Irene Carson's feeder has a high count of  5 Anna's Hummingbirds this  winter, and our resident flock  of Canada Geese has exploded  from 18 to 33 in one year.  Very low counts were recorded for Harlequin Ducks and  Bald Eagles. We also suffered  the embarrassment of completely missing Killdeer on  count day, though it was present for count week. No one  should be surprised that we  missed such species as Black  Capped Chickadee, Brown  Creeper, Benwick's Wren Hermit Thrush, Towhsend's  Solitaire, Evening Grosbeak or  White Crowned Sparrow, as  these birds are alLrather^uhv^  common, rare or hard to find in  our area.     ���'.' V--'^-':' -O  Birds recorded for the first  time on our Christmas bird  count were Gadwall, Ancient  Murrelet, arid Heerman's Gull.  The Gull was the '^Bird of the  Count'', and thanks to Doug  Brown for identifying it. This is  an exceptional bird for the Sunshine Coast, or anywhere in  B.C. in midrwinter.  Despite the mediocre species  count on the big day, ourtotal  for count week (three days  before and three days after  count day) was actually very  good. I added 10 species for  count week, and this included  an exceptional streak of luck in  which I saw Downy Woodpecker, Red-Breasted Sap-  sucker, and Sharp-Shinned  Hawk in a period of 15 minutes  near the Marsh. These species  barely made it into count week  for they were seen in the. last  hour before dark on the last day  of count week. Perhaps this incident encapsulates the whole  birding experience���the joys  arid frustrations.  Despite our lowest ever  count day total, our count week  score was gratifying. To those  who braved the elements, our '  thanks.

Billy Banacek,  a painter I have crossed paths  with at various underground  gatherings, has just been  sentenced to seven years for  trafficking in cannabis. My initial reaction is to gasp at the  severity of the sentence. It is  the heaviest yet handed down  in B.C. courts for the relatively new offence. Most first-time  heroin dealers don't get hit  much harder than this and the  judgement is almost certain to  be appealed. It then occurs to  me that Banacek will shortly  be joining us in the South  Wing. While I deplore the circumstances, it will be  refreshing to talk with a fellow  dabbler in the arts. I await his  arrival with sympathy and interest.  Sure enough, Billy Banacek  is escorted into the wing, later  the same day. There will be no  lowly cleaner's quarters for  him however. The severity Of  his sentence has earned him a  berth with the big-time boys.  Billy is in his early twenties  Dark haired, clean cut,  athletic, he looks fresh off  campus and absurdly young;  He enters the second-tier catwalk and moves unsurely '  along it, searching for a vacant  drum. He wears an odd expression - half stoical, half  disbelieving. A couple of the  heavy dealers greet him cordially. This is privileged turf to  their way of thinking and Billy  has obviously earned his place  there. .He greets them back  uncertainly. I guess the poor  guy is shaking in his boots and  I damn sure can't blame him;  "Hi there, Billy," I say.  He looks down in a startled  way. Then he spots me and his   ���  face   lights   up.   "Hey,   for "  Christ's sake, man" he says^  "What the hell are you doing  here?" :C'v  "Time" I tell him with a  wry smile. (After three weeks, ���  I'm even starting to talk like a .i  con.) ���'.'*  We exchange a few more  noncommittal   words,   both  ���  conscious" !6f 'the alerted ears  all'arouWusl'I krioW-<what<a;�����  familiar fac^' baft 'rlfelaff m 'aO  new   fish   in   this   globmV'''  bastille.   Despite   the   circumstances, I feel glad at that  moment, that I am there1 to  greet him.  As the only pot offenders in  the South Wing;, Billy and I  have an immediate sense of  camaraderie, strengthened by  the fact that we are already  casually acquainted. It is not  until yard-time the following  afternoon, though, that we are  able to talk freely.  "How the hell did all this  come down?"

"Shit, you wouldn't believe  it" says Billy with a resigned  grin. "I was just putting out to  a few close friends. I had  about twenty-five regular  customers and I never let it get  any bigger than that. Then a  nark who was working undercover got to one of these people and convinced him that he  was cool. I was still leery to  sell to the bastard, but my so-  called friend finally convinced  me that he was okay.  "Anyhow, he brings the cat  around to my pad. He's a  dark, heavy looking dude with  a scar on his face. The guy  comes on cool enough - says  he's from back East. He wants  to cop a kilo. I tell him I don't  have that much on hand so he  settles for half a pound.  "Couple of days later,  there's a knock oh my door.  When I open it, this dark  sucker comes charging in  along with Abe Snidanko and  a couple of other narks. Turns  out he's a cop called Ridley.  They tear hell out of my place,  find the rest of my stash and  charge me with dealing.  "I get a good lawyer, but  they had me so cold Clarence  Darrow couldn't have beaten  it. All he can really do is plead  for leniency. Then we have the  bad luck to come up before  one of the worst fascists in the  judicial system. He decides to  nail me to the cross and you  know the rest of it."  '' Be goddammed!" I say,  "I was busted by the same  nark. But, Jesus Christ, Billy,  that's a hell of a sentence! You  should sure as hell appeal."  "Oh, we're going to" he  says. "My lawyer figures we  ought to be able to get it  reduced to three. That's'still a  lot of time, but it's a lot better  than a seven spot!" Billy  smiles grimly.  ���To be continued...

There would be no change, no factories/no itRis orthatiiina^rio jobs. In fa^  The art of salesmanship is, of course, the ability to persuade a person to part with their money for something that  provides a useful purpose (in whatsoever form or manner) at a price the purchaser can afford.  To sell someone something they neither need, can benefit from, or afford is not good salesmanship.  In the retail trade we constantly meet the onslaught of salesmen, trained in various ways by their employers.  One learns by experience what to avoid buying regardless of how "good" or "how profitable" the product being  offered may sound. If, for instance, in a food supermarket where sales are largely made by display and self-serve, a  special demonstration is required to get people to understand the real quality or value in possessing said article, it is  best not.to buy it unless, of course, one is prepared to hire a demonstrator.  At left of this column is a good case in point. Some time ago one of our employees was persuaded by some slick,  fast-talking salesman to purchase a couple of case's of RALLY ANTI FOG PASTE. It's in a can much the size of the old  paste wax cans. The directions for use are printed thereon. It was priced to sell at $5.89. It did not sell!  We opened a can, we tried it, and it's a really good product. It's a darn nuisance, for instance, when you shower and  your bathroom mirror fogs over. I tried this stuff on our bathroom mirror and after my hot shower the mirror had NO  mist on it. A little round one (not treated) was all misted up.  It's good for your car windshields, or to polish your woodwork, or your enamel surface appliances.  Trust me, and try it. If you follow directions it's money well spent. If you're dissatisfied, we'll give you your money  back/   .  REAL WIN  50.00   GROCERY   DRAW!  $S����!L ota*  Mi&  e*>V  ce<V  &0<~~       1. Cut out this Coupon  2. Attach to your Sales Slip  3.

There  were about 115 bowlers taking  part from all over B.C. and it  looks like it will be a good tournament. It's a new tournament  and except for minor problems  went well.

See story below.      -Bob corbeit phoio  Eagles take second  , by Bob Corbett, Coach  The Chatelech Eagles senior  boys basketball team finished  second in their invitational  home tournament this past  weekend. The Eagles played  two strong games on Saturday  to post wins over Pender Harbour and Lord Tweedsmuir  from Surrey. On Friday night  they dropped a hard-fought  ,game to the winners of the tournament, the Richmond Colts.  Against the Colts, Chatelech  was ahead by four points at the  half, but suffered a let down in  the third quarter which they  were unable to overcome in the  fourth. The final score was  71-66 for the Colts.'  In the Lord Tweedsmuir  game on Saturday morning the  Eagles trailed 26-23 at the half.  A strong third quarter saw  Chatelech gain an eight point  lead then hang on for a 51-45  win.  The Pender Harbour victory  also saw Chatelech down at the  half, then winning on a strong  performance' in the third and  fourth quarters. The final score  was 54-43.  The visiting coaches named  the Eagles Grant Glessing to  the tournament All Star Team  on the basis of his strong  defense and rebounding. Dave  MacLeod and Phillip Nelson  also played well for what is  becoming a strong Eagles  defense. Trever Blair averaged  22 points a game in the tournament, including a game high 32  against Richmond on Friday  night.  On the girls side of the draw  the Chatelech girls placed  third. On Friday night Seycove  from North Vancouver  defeated them 35-34._The girls  rebounded on Saturday afternoon to defeat Kwalicufti  45-23. Seycove won the girls  tournament by defeating Lord  Tweedsmuir .44-38^Dar_cie  Young and Ellen Thomasfof-  Chatelech were named to Hhe  girls All Star Team.  If Area F director John  Shaske's efforts to obtain a  B.C. Rail flagstop at Horeshoe  Bay have been successful,  Coast skiing enthusiasts  without personal transportation will now be able to enjoy a  full day of skiing at Whistler.  Director Shaske proposed to  the Sunshine Coast Regional  Board last week that the SCRD  v request that B.C. Rail introduce a flagstop at  Horseshoe Bay for ferry  passengers wishing to ski at  Whistler, or visit points along  the route. He has also suggested that residents from the  Coast could become involved  in a "make work" project that  encompasses upgrading the  trail from, the ferry terminal to  the railway line and, with B.C.  Rail's permission, construct a  shelter at the proposed  flagstop.  The board unanimously  agreed to support Shaske's idea  and will direct a letter to B.C.  Rail suggesting a flagstop and  proposing that Coast residents  ^-^-^wJJJ be responsible for  upgrading the trail arjfl  building a shelter. ^  Chinook  At the sunset of life...we care  Grief knows no time . . . sunrise or sunset the pain of loss comes  at last to each of us.

Seven teams of six to seven-  year olds play mini-soccer  every week at Roberts Creek  Elementary, Chatelech. and  Gibsons Elementary, between  10-11:00 a.m. Interlocking  games are 'fun' games and no  scores are kept. ;  Eight to nine-year old action  resumed with Gibsons  Goldhawks travelling to  Roberts Creek. The unbeaten  Goldhawks had their hands full  against an improving Roberts  Creek team. An early goal by  Jesse Tainier of the Goldhawks  was the only score until late in  the second half, when "Dean  Wolansky added an insurance  goal for a 2-0 win. Mathew  Chalmers playing up from the  younger age group for Roberts  Creek made a great save, tipping a hard shot over the  crossbar to keep the score close  in the first half.  Gibsons Firebirds defaulted  their game to Sechelt Pacmen  because of insufficient players.

Our appearance was somewhat  delayed by a bout with the 'flu  bug.  A-month ago. I dealt with the  Norwegian experience in the  development of fish farms for  the production of rainbow  trout and salmon as an alternate way of providing employment for fishermen who j in recent years, have found.it increasingly more difficult; to.  make a living fishing for  natural stocks on the high seas  and in coastal areas.  Fish farming can start in a  small way and provide part-  time employment until expertise and facilities allow a full-"  time operation'that can supply  the market demand for a top  quality product twelve months  of the year.  The same week, early in  December that the Norwegian  Fish* Farm films were being  seen on the Sunshine Coast, a  crowded meeting of commercial fishermen and other Coast  residents was held in Sechelt to  discuss the implications to  coastal communities and commercial and sports fishermen of  the recommendations in the  Pearse Report on the west coast  fishery.  The principal speaker to the  meeting was Jack Nichol, president of the United Fishermen  andAllied Workers' Union. He  spent a good portion of his ad-:  dress on various aspects of the  Pearse Report and said that  some parts of it had some ,  merit, but, for the most part, it  was ..."very bad news indeed  for the commercial fishing industry. It wijl, in fact, have the  long-term effect of eliminating  ..commercial fishing, with  salmon being caught in weirs  and traps on their return from  the ocean". He pointed out  that the hew Minister of  Fisheries had indicated a desire  to start implementing  Dr. Pearse's report immediately, without any concern or consideration for the people and  communities in our area and  other parts of the coast, who  would be devastated by this ac-.  tion? i''.':'., v>.'.,",-:..,,./ '  After the speaker had finished his remarks, he answered  questions from the floor and,  after some discussion, a committee of fishermen and concerned people ^w^ to  try to get a tw07year  moratorium on the recommendations of the report. In  response to a request from the  chair for a name for the new  committee old Chak-Chak offered "The Stop Pearse Committee" which was accepted  immediately. Let us hope that  this committee is successful,  for we all have a lot at stake in  this matter.  Sea you.

This  decision  reflects  the  practical support of the congregation and its friends in the  community who have responded so well to St. John's appeal  for building funds. By the end  of 1982 well over 90 per cent  of the required money has  been pledged or donated and  church   officials   are   most  gratified with the enthusiasm  and generosity of those who  have contributed extra gifts to  ensure   badly   needed   additional space.  The first Sunday of 1983  saw the largest congregation  ever attending a regular  church service in St. John's,  while the two Christmas Eve  carol services also taxed the  seating capacity of the church  as many families came to  celebrate the birth of���the  Bethlehem Babe.  Hopefully, construction will  commence this spring���provided permits are received and  the fund target is reached. Mr.  Ernest A. Wood, St. John's  treasurer, while expressing the  appreciation of the church for  the magnificant; support  already received, is still hoping  that those who plan to contribute will indicate their intention in the near future in  order that the finanacial phase  of planning may reach a successful conclusion.

The federal government has  allocated $500 million to create  more than 60,000 jobs between  now and the end of MarchT  1984. Funds will be allocated tb  projects on a regional basis and  must be consistent with  regional strategies. Proposals  must demonstrate that they will  create extra employment and  will not replace activities  undertaken by current  employees or volunteers. Proposals from community  organizations must. not create  an ongoing dependency.       t;>  NEED funds will contribute  to the wages of eligible workers  up to an average of $200 per  week per worker, with extra  contributions available for key  skilled supervisory personnel.  As much as an additional $125,  per week per worker will be  made available for non-profit  groups, unions, municipalities  and federal departments to  help cover capital and other  costs.  The minimum duration of  projects will be 12 weeks, with a  maximum of one year.  Projects may cover a wide  range of activities, employing  any number of people.

Such a bylaw would prevent the situation  that has occurred in the Powell  River Regional District,  whereby the Greater Vancouver Sewage and Drainage  District has unilaterally decided to enter into a 20-year contract with Genstar Waste  Management Group to dispose  solid waste in quarries arid excavations on Texada Island.  The SCRD has also received  a letter from the PRRD requesting support of other  regional districts on the matter.  The board agreed to send a letter to the Waste Management  Branch reiterating its previous  position that the SCRD is  against unilateral decisions  made by one regional district  that adversely affect another  regional regional district.  Copies of that letter will also be  sent to Other regional districts,  the ministers of Mines,  Municipal Affairs, and Environment, MP Ray Skelly,  ML A Don Lockstead and J.  Price. ^  J.

Vandals  smashed the car's windshield  and kicked in the grill.  On the 7th: A driver caused  $200 worth of damage to the  Bank of Montreal in Lower  Gibsons when he backed his car  into the bank's wall. He was  charged with driving without  due care and attention.  On the 8th: Five local men were  arrested and held overnight in a  cell for being drunk in a public  place, and another was charged  with possession of a prohibited '  weapon and with possession of  a weapon dangerous to public  peace. The incident occurred in  the early morning hours at the  Harbour Heights Apartments,  following a complaint received  by Police from a young woman  who was being chased and  threatened by a man wielding a  Nunchaku, a Japanese martial  arts weapon.  On the 9th: 20Tyear-old Roger  Hincks was arrested and searched in the Cedars Mall parking lot and found to be in  possession of narcotics. He has  been charged.  On the 11th: Extensive sea and  air rescue procedures were  launched following a distress  call received from a group of  boaters in the Popham Island  area. Four Gibsons men and  one Sechelt man, who had all  but given up hope of rescue,  judging by the desperate way  they held on to their flares,  were eventually towed into the  safety of Gibsons Harbour.  The five men had chartered a  fishing boat and encountered  some unforeseen troubles. The  man, who dida't even catch any  fish during their fishing  voyage, were very grateful to be  plucked safely from the rough  waters of the Strait of Georgia.  On the 12th: Police received a  report that two young males  were behaving strangely in the  Langdale Ferry Terminal area.  The youths apparently disappeared into the bush only to  reappear later at the terminal.  Police were alerted and the  youths were apprehended and  taken in for questioning; they  were held in custody pending a  court appearance where they  were charged with break and  entry of a cabin in the Langdale  area. The one adult and one  juvenile were from out of town.  On the 13th: Gas was siphoned  from a vehicle parked in the  Port Mellon area.  SECHELT RCMP:  On the 7th: Vandalism was  done to the Madeira Park  Elementary School Damage is  estimated at over $200. Twelve  windows were smashed.  A $260 blue MX bicycle was  stolen from the West Sechelt  School.  On the 8th: Some liquor and  tools were stolen from a  residence located at the end of  Tuwanek Road.  On the 9th: The Sechelt Rod  and Gun Club was broken into  and it appears that some .22  calibre rifles might have been  taken. Police are still investigating the theft until more  information on the club's  weapon inventory is received *  On the 10th: There were two  separate incidents of hit and  run reported that day, one in  Sechelt in the B.C. Tel compound area, and another one in  Garden Bay were damage was  done to a fence.  A 12 foot aluminum boat  with oars was found in the  Halfmoon Bay area.  On the 11th: Tools that were  stored in a carport outside a  Halfmoon Bay residence were  stolen. The tools were worth at  least $200. Police have no*  suspects.  On the 12th: The Homestead  Restaurant; in Wilson Creek  was broken into. Entry was  gained through a window at the  rear of the building. It is not  known to date if anything was  stolen.  The front wheel of a five-ton  truck was stolen, while the  vehicle was parked in the  Redrooffs area.  A cabin in Sakinaw Lake was  broken into and some tools  were stolen. Entry was gained  by kicking in the front door.  On the 13th: There were three  reports of single motor vehicle  accidents caused by black ice;  one in Wilson'Creek and  another near Trout Lake. The  third one, which occurred on  Highway 101 in Roberts Creek,  caused slight injury to the  driver.

It was the School Board's  Educational Meeting and  parents had gathered, despite  the rain, to express their concerns about educational cutbacks, and to ask how their  school would be affected.  As there are already  16  /   V. CECCHI&  E. PETERSON  B.C. LAND SURVEYORS  STE. 204,.1326 WHARF ROAD  P.O. Box 1894  SECHELT, B.C.  VON 3A0  TELS.: 885-5864 & 883-9998  - children looking forward to  kindergarten next year, it  doesn't appear that there is any  worry about the status of the  school, but the swimming programme cannot be reinstated,  equipment may be difficult to  replace and materials will be in  short supply.  ��� - In reply i to a plea that the  board always? keep the-  children's interests as top*  priority when cuts have to be  made, Secretary-Treasurer  Mills said he thought the board  had gone to incredible lengths  in its concern for the children in  the district; that it had asked  the teachers for. help in making  these difficult decisions, but  that for political reasons the  teachers had refused.  Expansion plans for Halfmoon Bay will have to be put on  hold until the schools with a  higher enrolment are looked  after.  Pender Students' Trip to  Prince George:  David Gibson's Alternate  Class from Pender Harbour  a new world  is emerging  for  disabled people  support  the  asked the school board for per- ���������  mission for a field trip to Prince  George next month to study the  difference in geography,  climate and life style of the nor- '  thern city. The group of eight  students and three adults will  travel by train and spend six  days in the city as guests of Col-  lege  Heights   Secondary  . School .The students have been:.  planning their trip since1  September and have raised  $2,000 for their travel expenses, as well as spending  money for the trip, through  hamburger and pizza sales, raffles j car washes, etc.  Trustee "bouglas expressed  appreciation of the efforts  these students had made. "We  should be very proud of these  kids," he said.  In giving its unanimous approval, the board asked if the  students would give a report of  their adventures when they  return.  Cedar Grove:  A letter from Cedar Grove  principal Colleen Elson, urging  the board to ask the Ministry of  Education to reverse its refusal  to allow the extensions for  Cedar Grove, already approved in last year's capital expenditures budget, got results.  Trustees decided to send a  delegation to Victoria in support of the position made by the  school community.     y  At the same time, the board  agreed to present to the  ministry plans for the expansion of Roberts Creek Elementary School, rejected last year,  and for further expansion at  Chatelech Secondary.  As enrolment at Roberts  Creek now makes that school  eligible for a full-sized gymnasium, there was speculation  as to whether Victoria would  make a refund to the community, as the gymnasium has  already been built under a  joint-use contract.  A report received by Barrie  Boulton, principal of  Elphinstone Secondary, from  Simon Fraser University indicates that Elphi grads are performing significantly above the  provincial average in their  chosen fields.  It has become university  policy to send periodic reports  to school districts on the  academic standing of their  graduate students.  All the Elphi students attending S.F.U. achieved marks  above the S.F.U. Grade Point  Average in the preceding fall,  spring and summer semesters.  These results echo the success  of Elphi grads at the University  of British Columbia who were  reported, in October, to be  achieving higher grades than  their peers from across B.C;  Long-time  resident  passes  JACK REDMAN 1909 tol983:  : A memorial service for Jack  Redman was held at St. Hilda's  church on Thursday, January  13. Reverend Paetkau conducted the service that was  piped in to St. Hilda's Hall for  the overflow crowd to hear.  ; The Redman family came to  Canada from Surrey, England  iii 1911, settling in Vancouver.  Jack was the youngest of four  spns; Sidney lives in West  Sechelt, Art in Sechelt and  Ronald in Vancouver.  They started coming to camp  in Sechelt in 1917. Parents,  Ernest and Kate, retired to  Sechelt in the early '40s and  both were very active in St.  Hilda's church with Mr. Redman starting a fund to build the  hall and helping to construct  the building.  There is a memorial in their  memory in the church.  ' Jack and Lee Redman moved to Sechelt in 1946 with their  son Bruce, operating the Red  and White Store in the building  nthat now'has the Workwear  AVvforld; -They lived' above the  >  store for a time then when they  moved they let the upstairs go  to the Sechelt Library. They  moved their business to the  Lang Block in 1962.  A soccer player in his youth  Jack was very supportive of  young people in sports. A doer  more than a leader, Jack  assisted his wife in her activities  with Mayday, Hospital auxiliary events and others and was  always ready to lend a helping  hand.  He was an honourary  member of the Royal Canadian  Legion, Branch 140. The last  few years he had been a very active member of the Sunshine  Coast Golf and Country Club  where already his very congenial presence has been much  missed.  Jack was one of the original  volunteer firemen when, they  operated out of the little shed  alongside the old Whitaker  House having a hand pump to  squelch the fires.  Friends and relatives were invited to Bruce and Gail Redman's home in Selma Park  after the funeral service.  Jack also leaves behind his  two grandsons, Ryan 15 and  Darren 13.  "De&C$*t.

Transition House  wins SCRD approval  Representatives from the  Sunshine Coast Community  Services Society appeared  before the Sunshine Coast  Regional Board last Thursday  to seek zoning clarification and  defend their choice of a new  location for the Sunshine Coast  Transition House.  Also seeking support was a  group of angry residents from  the neighbourhood in which  the Society wishes to relocate  the Transition House. These  residents are incensed that the  Society has chosen to relocate  to iheir neighbourhood  without consulting them first.  ���In an attempt to block the move  to their area, the residents  hoped to prove to the regional  board that the district's zoning  by-law would not permit the  Transition House to operate in  their neighbourhood.  The Transition House has  been operating for the past year  in a rental house located in the  Wilson Creek area. In August,  the SCCSS learned that it  would have to relocate the  Transition House, and because  of a programme offered by  CMHC which effectively  would reduce the-lending rate  to two per cent, the Society  decided to purchase a home  rather than rent. While the  Society does not need the approval of the regional district to  purchase the home, the CMHC  required written proof that  zoning by-laws permit the  residence to be used as aTransi-  tion House.  Taking info consideration  information and statistics provided by the Society, regional  planner Jim Johnstone ruled  that the district's zoning by-law  would allow the residence the  Society wishes to purchase to  be used as a Transition House.  The board unanimously upheld  Mr. Johnstone's interpretation  of the by-law and agreed to  prepare a letter to that effect.  Chief Craigan gives  band history view  Chief Calvin Craigan will  present an opportunity to find  out about the Sechelt Indian  Band's history.

One option, which would  cost $167,000 in total, would  see a permanent gravity rfeed  system servicing twenty lots  along the shoreline to the hydro  line. This would connect to the  pump-house at Prowse Road.  Council will contribute  $85,000 from the Sewer Utility  Fund and would have to apply  to Victoria for permission to  borrow the other $82,000. This  amount would break down to  an annual parcel tax of $584 per  household.  A cheaper option would require the installation of a flight  pump, which would lift the effluent to the collector line and  cost $356 parcel tax. This  would not remain as a permanent installation.  Two other options were  outlined, which would service  fewer lots, but at least would  assist those people who are  awaiting the installation of the  sewer to move into their  houses.  Questions were asked by  residents about cost sharing  and cost alteration once other  areas on the Bluff are added to  the sewer. Mayor Goddard explained it is "the intent of council to be as fair as possible'' and  it is "very hard to determine  fairness" in this respect.  Residents were disturbed to  find that by-law approval  would take at least three months. This prompted a suggestion that if each resident on the  beach-line paid for installation  of his section of the line, then  there would be no need for Victoria to be involved. A $4,000  cost now would save $7,000  over the long run. A committee  was formed to see if all the  residents concerned would be  willing to agree to this partial  solution to the sewage problem  which has plagued Bluff  residents for many years.  Wharf  proposal  supported  Sechelt council voted last  week to support Sunshine  Coast Recreation Consultants'  proposal to use the Porpoise,  Bay wharf as a centre for ren-  ting recreational equipment.  The support is subject to approval by appropriate government agencies and the willingness of the parties to agree to  specific controls on the site.  -  Alderman Ken Short told  council that other groups have  had an adequate opportunity to  submit proposals and none,  have been forthcoming. Short  also said that as long as the.  public's use of wharf facilities'  is not infringed, and the space  required by the operation is  minimal, the project should   '  benefit the village.
