These operations were put  into effect in the fall. Initially  EBAP workers have to wait six '  weeks to receive their,first cheque as UIC switches from computer cards to manual. After  that, supposedly everything  should run smoothly and fhe  weekly cheque of approximately $200 should be issued every  two weeks.  Such has not been the case  and it was a lean Christmas for  some EBAP employees* -  *.

They  choose to work instead of collecting UIC.  Local UIC authorities are  helpless as cheques are issued  from Vancouver. They  acknowlege that the manual  system used to replace the computers is not working but are  not sure why.  Architectural and engineering  representatives presented a  * working drawing of the proposed Community Recreation  -Centre for Gibsons to the  Centennial Committee at a  .meeting held last week,       '   '  .' The group was headed by J.  Kramer who works out of  White Rock and included Cyril  jMablethqrpe and Chris Dib-  ' nah. They came to the attention  7 of town planner Rob Buchan  ( while working on the new  .Pentecostal Church on School  .'Road and recently completed  work on the Recreation Centre  ��� in Powell River.  The attractive looking  package included racquet ball  courts and a multi-purpose  ,room. According to Kramer  ,' ;the proposal could be phased in  " J with the lucrative racquet ball  '  /courts being built first.  *  {    "The entire complex could  ) be built for $700,000," Kramer  '.assured the Centennial Com-  Tnittee. "Less if volunteer  ��� labour was involved."  j    At the outset of the meeting  ' Kramer cautioned that the  j multi-purpose room in the  recreation scheme was not a  ? theatre.  "I have no doubt you will  r need a theatre here one day but  ' if we had been asked to design a  1 theatre it would not have been  ���krectangle," said Kramer.  -. "Provisions have been made to  f> have a raised area sixteen feet  '- high over the proposed stage  area."  Steve White of Gibsons expressed strong concern about  this aspect of the otherwise attractive proposal.  "This is the kind .of compromise that has been going pn  >,.. in Gibsonsi^tbojlong,^ said^  '' White. -*?we*nave groups'Iike J  Lyn Vernon's performing now  on makeshift stages with  makeshift chairs and makeshift  lighting and it is not good  enough."  White said that if the multipurpose room proposed was  accepted there would be no  theatre in Gibsons for years.  "We will be told that what  we have is good enough and it  isn't,".said White. "With a  proper facility we could bring  the UBC Players here, we could  have symphony concerts, but  we must have a decent facility  for the performing arts."  . Otherwise the proposal  brought to the meeting by  Kramer and his associates was  warmly received.  In addition to the concept  presentation by Kramer and his  associates, chairman Barry  Boulton told the committee of  a variety of fund-raising  schemes. These included a  telethon in May on the local  community channel. The  telethon would take the form of  a giant TV bingo and would  coincide with a giant bingo  night in Elphinstone Secondary  school.  Other activities and features  outlined included a dance on  March 26, theme to be decided;  the use of the unused  newstands on the B.C. ferries  for promotional purposes; a  flea market on Gibsons wharf,  starting April 3; and placemats  designed to the committee's  specifications by the Sunshine  Coast News  The next meeting of the  Centennial Committee will  take place in the Marine Room  on March 17 at 7:30 p.m.  Aquaculture forum  The Economic Development Commission has announced  a forum on aquaculture will be held at the regional board offices on Wednesday, March 2. The forum will include  reports from Brad Hope on his Nelson Island salmon farm  and from John Seamon on oyster farming. Those interested  in participating should call 885-2261.  No foreshore lease  An application for a foreshore lease in front of his property at the head of Porpoise Bay by Sechelt resident Hans Kuch  was turned down at the council meeting last week.  Village historian Helen Dawe pointed out that the Marsh  Protection Society had a request for a conservation lease in  the area pending since 1978.  Alderman Ken Short, a neighbour of the applicant,  absented himself from council chambers during the discussion.  Wildlife films  The Gibsons Wildlife Club is continuing its policy of  showing family-oriented movies and will be presenting  "Living River" narrated by Roderick Haig-Brown and  /���The Man Who Digs For Fish" on Wednesday, February 23  at the clubhouse, starting at 7:30 p.m." - �����-*"-  ��� > Open to the public and bring'the family.

Confidentiality assured  Food Bank gets going  Food Bank Committee  > Early in the New Year a few  of us at Langdale'terminal were  walking about the Vancouver  Food Bank and wondering  aloud whether one is needed on  the Sunshine Coast.  So many people are out of  work: permanent lay-offs;  temporary shut-downs; ;iong  delays   in   dealing. with  unemployment*offices; the  I agony for some applying for  " welfare; and those who just  don't know where to turn. We  decided to investigate. In the  six weeks we've been checking  and amassing information, including a visit to the Vancouver  Food Bank on distribution day,  we have found there really is no  .doubt that volunteers could  '; Operate a bank here on the Sunshine Coast. jThere most  definitely is a need.

M  Fire Safety still  cause for concern  Efforts to improve fire protection in the West' Howe  Sound area continue, in spite of  problems with Victoria. The  by-law to allow a referendum  to approve the purchase of a  new fire truck and the construction of a fire hall is delayed in  Victoria.  Mayor Goddard of Gibsons  told the Coast News that the  concern appears to be whether  the items should be included in  one question or be two separate  questions. .  New safety regulations  governing the improvement of  standards of safety, health and  equipment for firefighters have  been instituted by the Worker's  Compensation Board. These  will have to be adhered to even  if extra expense is involved.  The WCB acknowledged  that "while the timing of these  new regulatory demands may  appear inopportune, health  and safety standards do not  wait for economic conditions".  Architect J. Kramer of White I^ck presents his concept of the Community Recreation Centre at a  meeting of Gibsons'Centennial Committee last week. -John Burnsidephoto  Back-up funds not allowed  concern  Sechelt to seek  new park land  With work on the park on  District Lot 1472 well underway, the village of Sechelt is  casting its eyes on adjacent lot  1646.   .  "We are somewhat land  poor in the village," said alderman Ken Short at a council  meeting held last week. "I  think we should look into the  possibilities of acquiring lot  1646 for future development."  Possible uses of District Lot  1646 ranged from the suggestion of a mobile home park to a  future Sechelt Golf Course.  Alderman Short paid tribute  to the co-operation the village  had received from long time  resident Vic Walters in the  development of-the park on  District Lot 1472.  .. :  .  by Maryanne West  Having decided to submit a  budget reflecting the needs of  this District rather than adhering; to the letter of the government 's>prescribed ceiling,  school trustees were faced with  yet!another dilemma last week.  "Approximately $200,000 is  unspent-from last year's "J"  section, money raised by local  property taxes to cover school  grounds and building  maintenance, equipment etc.,  and Victoria will allow that  money to be transferred to help  balance the crucial operating  budget, sections A-F. Expecting their challenge to the  government to fall on deaf  ears, trustees would have liked  to have had that money to fall  back on if it comes to a crunch,  but if it is budgeted as  "surplus" it will obviously be  automatically transferred to  offset the operating overrun.  Trustees felt this is actually  politically dishonest, in that  they'd be using locally raised  property taxes.to subsidize the  government's share of the  operating budget, money the  government raises from industry for school purposes; obviously a no-win situation.  So, the "J" section surplus  was earmarked for the completion of work detailed in last  year's budget; a new "J"  budget was requested and if  Victoria still insists that the  budget must be cut to their ceiling, i.e. by $449,680 then cuts  in staff and programmes will  have to be made in September.  The day of reckoning may have  only been put off again.  The total budget submitted  to Victoria was $12,444,225,  which includes an operating  budget of $10,391,329, in excess of the ministry's  $9,941,649 guideline.

It is shameful to have to observe the Prime Minister trying to wiggle his way out the unsavoury business but it is  no more shameful than having to watch him arrogantly  use the second house of government as a pork barrel to  reward the tired Liberal party hacks or to reward his  friends as in the recent case of Michael Pitfield.  The clamour across the land is for men of strong image  to lead this party or that, though in the past 15 years we-  have had a clear indication from this Prime Minister that  to elect leaders based on image or charisma gives a poor  hope for future good government.  What this country needs is men in leadership of plain  speaking and honest dealing. We will not get them as long  as we allow such sleazy backroom manipulators as  Senator Keith Davey and the likes of the Ontario refugees  that now surround Premier Bill Bennett to persuade their  political masters that image is all.  Where is the clamour for honest men? Do we believe  that none exist?  Of course the Liberals are bending the rules again to  enrich their friends. The sad thing is that the only outrage  is the manufactured outrage of the Tories in the House of  Commons as they try to score political points and divert  attention from the unsavoury tangle of their own party  politics.  Serving two masters  The president of the British Columbia School Trustees  Association (BCSTA), Mr. Gary Begin, announced  earlier this month that he will be a candidate for the Social  Credit party for the Burnaby-Edmonds riding in the next  provincial election.  This would appear to represent a gross conflict of interest given the fact that the BCSTA is currently locked in  a struggle of wills with the very Social Credit government  Mr. Begin hopes to represent.  Every major school board in south western British Columbia is currently in the process of defying the Ministry  of Education's attempts to limit their budgets. Mr. Begin,  the chief spokesman for these boards severely strains his  credibility in attempting to serve two masters.  Both the Coquitlam and Campbell River school boards  have called for Mr. Begin's resignation and it would seem  reasonable that at the very least Mr. Begin should step  down until the provincial election.  This is not to suggest that Mr. Begin has in the past failed to represent school boards effectively, but his continued effectiveness is now clearly compromised.  A bona fide expert  We would particularly draw your attention, dear  reader, to the work of Coast News columnist and Sechelt  resident Frances Fleming on this page.  Mrs. Fleming maybe. known to many for her work on  the Sunshine Coast Cdnlniuriity Sem  her work on behalf of the Sechelt Library^ ^^^^''  What may not be widely known is that Frances Fleming is the closest thing to a bona fide education expert that  we have come across. She rose to the top of the education  profession in British Columbia as the Superintendent of  Superintendents, serving with humanity and distinction  at all levels in the school system.  With this reminder of her achievements in education  we rest well content to let her speak for herself.  ...from the files of the COAST NEWS  St. Mary's Hospital, Garden Bay, built in 1929-30 at a cost of  $25,000 on land donated by R. Brynildsen," Sr. Lieutenant-  Governor. R.R. Bruce formally opened the institution on August  16,1930, at which time St. Mary's contained 12 beds, 2 solariums,  a maternity roomy nursery, caseroom and operating room;  Reverend John Anile, superintendent of the Columbia Coast Mission, provided the initiative and impetus which resulted in cooperation by the Pender Harbour citizens, governments, and the  Anglican church to achieve a much-needed medical service.  Simultaneously the federal government built Hospital Wharf at  Garden Bay. The provincial government built a short road with retaining wall leading to the hospital, but it was not until 1941 that  8,400 ft. of road was completed linking Garden Bay with the main  highway to Irvines Landing. Often it was easier for clients to arrive  by water rather than travel the rough roads along the Sechelt Peninsula. On November 30,1964 the original St. Mary's was closed and  the patients transferred to the new hospital at Sechelt, built on land  donated by the Indian,Band. Photo by Edric S. Clayton. Caption  by Helen Dawe.  Fleming on Education  case  by Frances Fleming  There was a time on the Sunshine Coast when there were no  schools. There were children,  to be sure, but no schools. At  Gibsons, at Sechelt, at Pender  Harbour, and many other  small places, concerned  parents met and decided .to  start a school. f  What were the essentials? ;A  teacher, and a place to teach.  Some desks, a blackboard,  some readers, an outside toilet,  a clock, a bell, and little else.  Legend has it that, one parent,  viewing the list of essentials,  objected to the purchase of  toilet tissue; maple leaves, he  argued, were good enough at  home, so why accustom, the  5 YEARS AGO  Citizens of Pender  Harbour mourned the  death of long-time resident John Daly. Mr. Daly,  fisherman and former  executive of the United  Fishermen and Allied  Fishermen and Allied  Workers Union passed  away in The Pas,  Manitoba.  10 YEARS AGO  Fire, discovered about  4 a.m. Tuesday, resulted  in a complete demolition  of the building which  housed the Red Rooster  Cafe on the highway at  Davis Bay.  15 YEARS AGO  A junior high school  for Sechelt is reported to  be the basis for the next  school district referendum.  Continuance of the  British Columbia Ferry  strike prompted emergency measures Monday  by local Sechelt and  Pender Harbour mer  chants   in    replacing  depleting stocks of  basic commodities, particularly foodstuffs.  20 YEARS AGO  Representatives of  three chambers of commerce from Pender Harbour, Sechelt and Gibsons have approved the  opening of a road to the  Skookumchuck as a major   tourist   attraction;  25 YEARS AGO  W.H. Payne, Conservative, Coast-Capilano,  announces Hon, Howard  Green, Minister of Public  Works, has authorized a  breakwater - and:! floats  for Qibsohs Landing  with work: to start on a  project at a very early  date.  30 YEARS AGO  The chairman of the  St. Mary's Hospital Com-.  mittee reports that during the past week the  number of patients has  been increased. It is  hoped that this is a sign  of renewed interest in  the hospital.  The Sunshine  Editorial Department  John Burnside   George Matthews  Judith Wilson  fillf flWI  Advertising Department   .

Highly  paid boards of school,trustees  struggle with budgets, personnel, andcustodialcare Highly  paid superintendents assisted  by highly paid directors,; anjla  staff of important "others"  .   work at administration. The  highly paid secretary treasurer  does histhing.fender these,  more secretarial staff, district  staff, bus drivers, maintenance  staff...we could go on and on.  These district people have  their counterparts in the  Ministry   of   Education,  augmented by such as curricula  experts, and so on. Literally  thousands and thousands of  non-teachers dependi upon  education for their daily bread,  quite apart from the classroom  teacher, who seems the least  important, the most expendable of all personnel involved.  I have no quarrel with .  superintendents:   school  trustees, principals; having filled each of these roles, I am  aware of the work they do.  However, the only transaction that matters in education is  the one that generates between  pupil and teacher.; No education occurs in the school board  offices of the province! No  education occurs in the government offices in Victoria!  Education commences when  the teacher welcomes a class into a classroom and closes the  door.  In times of restraint,; that  classroom, its teacher and its  pupils inside, should be the  sacred shrine of learning. The  last educational dollar should  be spent to preserve it intact.  Our pioneer ancestors on the  Sunshine .Coast had that  respect for the classroom. Why  are we letting the powers that be  attack our teachers and our  children?  Has any school board in this  province offered to forego their  generous salaries to help out  the budget? Perhaps, but I have  not heard of any. Has any  superintendent of schools offered tb take a cutback to that  of an average principal's  salary? He would probably be  sent by his peers to a high class  psychiatrist.  Nobody in power in education is challenging the expensive, non-teaching, deeply entrenched, articulate career people who are "In education"  simply because they would  retaliate with all their verbal,  social and political skills, and  even bring down the government in their fury. So we agree  to fire the non-status teachers'  aides! Plus a few teachers!  However, if we called the  classroom teachers and the  parents on the Sunshine Coast  together, and offered them the  millions of dollars available,  and asked them how it should  be spent to provide quality  education for our children, .  would they accept the challenge  in 1983?  How much would they set  aside for administration and  supervision? How much of a  bureaucracy would they deem  .  necessary?    /.' ,!; v'-i-?-v;'':,"i':  ;���'^lThetscKcfol districts are sit-  ^Ong'dUckk'Tor the centralists in  ',Victoria1���be6aus��0mbst of us  ; have lost sight of what educa-  ' tion is.

Groups such as this  one wantrto impose their views  on "everyone���individual  choice and the ability to think  for oneself are considered of no  .importance.  (I For some, abortion is an  ^eniofronally charged issue.  Others, however, have earned  an ���awareness of life that goes  beyond the limits of this  physical world. We know that,  as soul, we enter a physical  body after a chosen body  separates from the mother���  after birth. This awareness is  everyone's birthright. It is up to  the, individual, however, to  choose to prove it for oneself.  I am simply saying that we  should have the freedom to  choose whether or not we want  an abortion.

Survival Carnival  The third in our four-part  series on the March 5-6 Survival Carnival to be held at  Elphinstone Secondary school.  Co-ordinator Selia Karsten  has planned 14 panel discussions covering various topics  that relate to survival. To illustrate the type, of discussion,  Selia invited to our studio local  residents Gloe Day, Brett  McGillivray: and Calvin  Craigan. The topic is survival,  what does it mean, how can the  community members work  together to help each other in  hard times? What does it mean  to be a good neighbour?

Darlane Snell 885-2224 Loc. 46  There were 21 members present at the monthly meeting of  the auxiliary on February 6. It  was a very busy meeting with  many items for discussion on  the agenda. President Alison  Steele together with volunteer  chairman Mary McDonald  gave a very informative explanation of the new status of  auxiliaries and answered many,  question. The members were  fully in favour of this new arrangement since the outcome is  that the hospital funds will  benefit from such changes.  It was pointed out that the  status of the individual auxiliaries will remain unchanged���-the only difference is that;  wefaret'now called the Half-;  moAhiRax JBranch.of .St J  Mary's Hospital Aj^xiliary.A  Our own group and. fundf$  raising activities will continue/  as before.

Why not  organize a car pool and attend'  this important meeting.  Future fund-raising activities were discussed and it  was decided that the Halfmoon  Bay Auxiliary would not have  their annual tea garden at this  year's Timber Days. This decision was made with some  regret, but it was agreed that  the situation has become quite  difficult as there are so many  other food outlets for this affair.. However, there are plans  for a Spring Tea at the  Welcome Beach Hall on April  9, a Flea Market in August and  a Fall Bazaar in October.  A reminder too of the Blood  Donor Clinic at the Sechelt  Legion on Tuesday, February  15.

For a long time I thought we  . should have one (and what  about a bakery and craft  shop���combined?) because I  never remember or it's not  business hours when I go  through Sechelt. Hence, I tend  not to wear certain things and  eventually forget about them.  Anyway, it's about time that  the Harbour benefited from its  own cleaning business. If you  leave your clothes at Ken Mar  Draperies on a Saturday they  will be back in most cases by the  next Saturday morning. They  are closed Mondays so Saturday at 4:30 p.m. is the deadline.  The clothes are cleaned by  Northwest Cleaners of North  Vancouver, a business with 30  years experience. It would be  fine to patronize a Coast  business���but as long as we  .**������:  : T>r_"_iT.

There will  be a course on Self Defense for  Women held at the Pender  Harbour Aquatic Centre in  March.

Call 883-9238 or 883-9402  I have a report from the  Pender Harbour Chamber of  Commerce February 7  meeting. Ray Phillips and  Russell Cameron gave short  and precise presentations with  regards to the Pearse Report.  They requested the assistance  of the chamber in bringin about  a one year moratorium on this  plan. This seemed reasonable  to the chamber as the Pearse  Report took two years and considerable money to ^prepare  while the various affected  groups were given three months  to come up with alternatives.  The B.C. Ferry Corporation  stated by letter that an 885 exchange number would be a  financial burden in these hard  times. The chamber had  pointed out that one charge to  the ferries covers a great deal of  little charges to the Harbour.  Much.discussion centred  around the proposed July 1  weekend "Happy Days" project of the community council.  The chamber selected a working committee and feels the  project could be beneficial and  fun for the community-.  ^Meetings are the first Monday  ^of each month in the Legion  hall.

Number one, we didn't lose  money and in these troubled  times that could be a distinct  ; possibility. Secondly, the band  gave us a really nice show complete with lights and good dancing music. Lastly there wasn't  one unfortunate incident to  ���mar the delightful evening including the visit of one very  courteous RCMP officer who  showed up at closing time.  Special thanks to Brian Cam-  po, Cookie, Dolly, Leonard  Silvey, Tim, Denny, Lise and  the clean-up committee.  The annual general meeting  of the Egmont Community  Club for election of officers  was held last Wednesday evening. Discussion of getting a  fence around the tennis court  was the most important topic  of the meeting. New officers  for the year of the boar are Billy  Griffith, president; Jon Van,  vice-president; and Betty  Silvey, secretary-treasurer.  Other members of the executive  include Leonard Silvey, Ron  Fearn, Karlene Walker and  Jack Williams.  One final note on Joe's Egmont marina.

Thanks a lot!  A NIGHT AT THE  ARTS CENTRE:  It was a most enjoyable evening of entertainment last Saturday at the Sechelt Arts Centre  when Le Quartette from North  Vancouver presented a programme of songs to suit all  tastes. These four young people  are really going places after  several years of hard  work���they are now a most  polished and professional  group. Over the years they have  been coached.by Nicki Weber  and expressed their appreciation to her at the show's end.  Nicki' is producing yet  another show which should be  an afternoon of real joy. This  will be an all,children's show  with young people from the  areas between Halfmoon Bay  and Gibsons participating.  There will be lots of singing arid  dancing, and the Dixieland  Band from Elphinstone school  will also be giving some lively,  selections. This show will be at  the Twilight Theatre on the  Sunday afternoon of February  27 from 2 till 4 p.m. Would be  nice to see a full house out there  to give moral support to these  great young; folks.  Another great show of local  interest will be the production  of "Barefoot in the Park", as  Ronnie Dunn of Redrooffs will  be appearing in this. Show  dates are February 25 and 26 at  Madeira Park Community  Hall and March 4 and 5 at the  Sechelt Elementary school.  _^ COMMERCIAL - RESIDENTIAL -  THE MODEftN APPROACH TO YOUR HOME OR BUSINESS 1  gServing the Lower Mainland! for over 20 years  883-2610]  MaaaaaWMmmTBMUatBmw  fO  lffA9R1  09%  For Child Tax Credit  Income Tax Refund  WHY WAIT MONTHS FOR YOUR MONEY  WHEN YOU CAN USE ST NOW  For more information drop in or call  1836 LONSDALE ST. 154 WEST HASTINGS  I NORTH VANCOUVER VANCOUVER  j 088-0121      684-1874  BEACHCOMBERS  CASTING CALL  GBG   Beachcombers   will   be   holding   a  general casting call for extras and  roles between the hour* of 9:00 a.m.  and 4s00 p.m. on the 2nd or 3rd of  March,   \n   plir   offices   behind   Molly's  ; Reach."

There weren't enough;  people' at last Wednesday's  meeting to form a quoroum  and most of the old stalwarts on  the executive do not intend to  stand for re-election .^next"  month. If more people do not  show an interest in carrying on,  the Society might as well shut  down.  It would be a shame because  the Association provides a  forum for the community to  discuss issues of concern and it  is generally recognized as the  voice for Roberts Creek. And  there are a couple of topics  coming up that are bound to  raise people's ire: the propane  tanksi arid the Sjidement Plan.  ; ^ere's'always a go6<3��rowd[  vfhen isuch issues are:.^atbthe  forefront^and?imaybe it'svtoo  muchto expect people to come  out to the monthly meetings  when there's seemingly nothing  of importance to discuss. But  there must be continuity in  order for the Association to  function in times of need and a  few items of interest usually  arise at every meeting.  ��� Brett McGillivray is carrying  on Harry Almond's policy of  coming to meetings to report  on what's happening at the  Regional Board. He's been corresponding ;with the Lands  Branch about the propane  tanks and is presently trying to  arrange a meeting to negotiate  .a solution. The tidbits he usually has to impart keep people in  touch with what's going on and  are enough in themselves to  make the meetings worthwhile.  I The Library isythriving. It's  now an official'reading centre  and will receive a $1600 grant  every year to purchase new  books., Spaced or lack of it,  may become a problem.  The new joint facility has not  had a grand opening yet  because it's not finished. The  Ways and Means Committee is  working to get the Community  Use rooms finished off with  volunteer labour and perhaps a  grant. The venilation system  has finally been installed and  the dry walling will-start once  the bathrooms and the elec-  triacal wiring are done.  Then, of course, there's the  old Community Hall, a  ���valuable asset to the community but also a big responsibility.  Sue Shepherd and Margaret  Arbuckle are doing a super job  of dealing with all the  headaches and deserve a big  thanks.  'The Community Association  is important but a lot of people  don't know: much about it, or  worse; doh*t:care.

None  of the positions are too onerous  but it's time some other people  got involved, particularly the  people who complain about the  way things are done.  CHILD ABUSE MEETING  This Wednesday, February  23, is the Roberts Creek  . Parents Auxiliary' meeting.  Harvey Bist will be speaking on  child abuse. The meeting starts  at 7:30,  RUMMAGE AND STAMPS  St. Aidan's Church will be  holding a garage sale on April 9  and they'd appreciate it if���  you'd start saving items now.  There'll be more information  later about who to contact.  Miss Hafrold would like peo- ���  pie to know that she still saves  stamps for the leprosy mission.  All kinds of stamps are good  but they must have a quarter  inch of paper around them, so  please don't cut them up close  to the perforations.  by Solveigh Harrison       '  Do you want the secret for a,  happy marriage? ^  "It's very simple. You've got  to give up a little of you for  him. Don't make everything a  game...but take care of him.  And make him feel important.

Coast News, February 21,1983  Bill Endert of West Sechelt  got the wholehearted support  of Sechelt Council last week  when he sought to have March  officially designated Minor  League Softball and Baseball  Month.  ' 'The merchants of this community cannot afford in these  difficult times to supply the  kind of sponsorship they have  been so generous with before,"  said Endert.  He explained the choice of  March as Minor League Ball  month'by saying the the  registration for the Softball  and Baseball leagues would  take place three weekends in a  row during that month.  The trust of Endert's presentation was that the participants  in the programmes would have  to take a larger share in fund-  raising than has been the case iri  the past. v  His suggestions included a  fund-raising run for all  registrants to be held on March  20 with a $15 entrance fee and  distances to be run from one,  three, five and fifteen  kilometres. Endert told council  that he already had obtained  RCMP sanction for such a run.  Another suggestion made by  Youth  soccer  Following completion of the  regular league play, two teams  from Division VIII in Powell  River will be hosted by two  local nine year old teams, one  from Sechelt and one from  Gibsons. A round-robin competition will be held on April 1  and 2 with games to be played  both in Gibsons and Sechelt.  The local teams will be  selected from nine year old  players, the same age group as  the Division VIII teams from  Powell River.  Times and locations of  games will be announced at a  later date.  Soccer action locally resum^  ed on February 19 after all; :  games were cancelled'onfS  February 12 because of wet  fields. Sechelt Pacman and  Gibsons Firebirds played to a  2-2 draw with the Firebirds getting the tie seconds before the  game ended.  Roberts Creek played tough  against the Gibsons  Goldhawks for 40 minutes  holding on to a 0-0 tie, but the  Goldhawks offense was out to  be denied as they scored three  quick goals in the last 10  minutes to win 3-0.

Booth  space at the garage sale would  cost$ 10 and it was hoped that  there would be at least 100  booths; Management of the  Mall had approved its use between the hours of 10 a.m. and 4  P-m-  . .

The bicycle track which has  been promoted for some time  would be the first permanent  facility on the coast and would  support the growing popularity  of the sport.

Or perhaps fish  and chips or clam chowder on  the menu of about 30 per cent  of restaurants.  But today, restaurant  patrons are being offered a  greater variety of the sea's  treasures including mussels,  lobster, shrimp, scallops and  clams to name a few.  Housewives too are serving  more seafood in the home as  they find that seafood preparation can be as simple as serving  cooked shrimp in a prepared  curry sauce over rice, Or, if the  occasion is a special one, they  may try a more complicated  recipe from one of the many  publications available in  bookstores and newsstands  across the country. >  While attending the Boat  Show I was surprised to find the;  interest, in seafood to be great  indeed. I estimate that 80 per  cent of the adult population are  keen on receiving information  and recipes for seafood and will  stop dead in their tracks when it  is offered to them.  Here is a fancy way to serve  salmon steaks for a couple of  friends.  Poached Salmon Steak with  Grape Champagne Sauce  (4 servings)  4 salmon steaks  (about 8 oz. each)  4 oz. green grapes (seedless)  1 cup white sauce  (standard recipe)  1 egg yolk (beaten)  1 tbs. butter or margarine  ]A cup cream (whipped)  salt to taste  1 Vz tbs. champagne  (or sweet, white wine)  small grape clusters  (and leaves?) for garnish  Method  Bring well salted water in a  poacher just to a boil, then  reduce heat and simmer salmon  steaks for about 4 minutes.  Remove to hot plates. To  pepare sauce, wash grapes and  drain. Heat white sauce. Blend  small amount of heated sauce  with egg yolk and return to  heated sauce. Add butter, and  cook over low hear for 4  minutes, stirring all the time!  Fold in cream and season to  taste with salt. Add champagne  and grapes, do not allow to boil  but keep warm until ready to  serve. Spoon over each salmon  steak and garnish with grapes  andleaves.  If grape leaves are not  available small leaves from our  local thimble berry bush will do  very nicely.  Sea you.

Coast News, February 21,1983  Gweri in Gibs oils  Judy Gates of Roberts Creek  has been appointed to the position of Job Creation Coordinator for the Sunshine  Coast.  Gates was selected from  what was described as a  number of strong candidates by  alderman Ken Short of Sechelt.  Short headed up a committee  formed after a meeting called  by MP Ray Skelly. Skelly informed local representatives of  the success of a job creation  programme in Powell River  and recommended that efforts  be made to implement a similar  programme on the Sunshine  Coast.  The successful candidate had  to be approved by the Canada  Manpower Centre in Sechelt..  * 'Part of Judy's present part-  time employment," said Short,  "is directing applicants to  government programmes. She  will bring about' an awareness  of the various job creation programmes available locally."  Flying school returns  Air Alps of Squamish are  looking forward to operating a  Satelitte Flying Training  School for another season.  This season will be the second  season that Air Alps will be  operating a Satelitte School  here in Gibsons/Sechelt.  With the assistance of the  Elphinstone Aero Club, by  allowing the use of the  clubhouse, Air Alps was able to  offer flying training and  ground school for. those interested in acquiring their  private pilots license for either  private or commercial use. The  instructor also provided checkouts for pilots who already  Gibsons  Public Library  Hours:  Tuesday 2-4 pm  Wednesday 10:30-4 pm  Thursday 2-4 pm  7-9 pm  Saturday 2-4 pm  have their license but required  updating of license in order to  fly the club's plane.  Anyone interested in obtaining their private pilot's license  or becoming a commercial pilot  please call 112-898-9016.  Air Alps will be showing an  aviation film called "A Dream  of Eagles" FREE at  Elphinstone Aero Club, also an  interesting short film on  Hangliding.

Waterline  upgrading  The regional board's public  utilities committee announced  Thursday that funding for the  replacement of inadequate  water mains in the district will  probably be limited to an  estimated $50,000 for 1983.  As a result, the committee  will be setting priorites for  which lines are in most need of  upgrading.  by Gwen Robertson, 886-3780  At the Sunsine Coast Consumers' Association of Canada  meeting on February 16 in the  Marine Room in Gibsons, Mr.  Wayne Abrahamson of the  Automotive Retailers'  Association reported on the  high price of gasoline on the  Sunshine Coast as opposed to  the lower in Vancouver where  the transit tax is an extra.  Mr. Abrahamson gave a  broad picture of the costs  deterining the price to the consumer, ranging from wellhead  to the gas pump, he indicated;  that taxes, federal, provincial  and municipal (eg.; transit tax  in Vancouver) comprised over  40 per cent of the price we pay  for gasoline.  With respect to the difference between gas prices on  the Sunshine Coast and in Vancouver, Mr. Abrahamson indicated that this was due to aw  ''gas war" intitiated by the oil  companies because of an overcapacity of refineries. This  "gas war" was effected by offering a subsidy to service stations, in high density areas,  that would lower prices.  This "gas war" has been a  boon to the automobile owner  who fills his tank with low-cost  gasoline, rather than partially  filling as usual. Many people in  outlying areas, including the  Sunshine Coast, would rush in  to fill their tanks as well and  take advantage of this artificial  "gas war" in Vancouver and in  other larger communities.  Small communities such as ^  Gibsons and Sechelt where service stations are not offered,  this subsidy, the price must remain higher unless the service  station owner accepts an even  smaller profit from selling;  gasoline.  Mr. Wayne Abrahamson  and the meeting were just getting warmed-up when he was  obliged to leave in order to  catch the "last ferry" at 8:30  p.m. .  The next meeting of the Sun-  shine Coast Consumers'  Association (volunteers) will be  on March 16 and if anyone has  an issue they wish to have included, please feel free to  telephone me at 886-3780.  Plans for the Survival Carnival on March 5 and 6 appear  to be moving along and it  should be a thought-provoking  affair as well as enjoyable.  I am looking forward to seeing the programme published  in the Coast News and by  noting the flurry of activity  among the theatre and other  groups that Selia Karsten and  the Survival Carnival is  generating, expect it to be a  memorable affair. And it is all  free.  Facade  grants  available  Further grants have now  been made available to the  downtown merchants of Gibsons for renovations and improvements to store fronts. As  part of the Downtown  Revitalization   Program: the  Ministry of Municipal Affairs  has allocated a further $5,000  for 1983 to coyer anticipated  claims for facade improvements.  The ministry had originally  allocated $50,000 to Gibsons in  1981 to assist in store front  renovation. During that time  two shops have been renovated  and $2,102 paid to down-town  merchants.  The facade improvement  grant covers only a percentage  of the cost of renovation. For  shop fronts a 20 per cent grant  is offered, or $200 per metre,  whichever is the least;  Superior]   Gibsons Brake, Tune  ^er & Muffler Ltd.

That indication was  ; completely justified.  Mr. Bernard Moore brought  a message to the audience that  -was knowledgeable, ���infor-"  jrnative,  and delivered in a  ^refreshingly informal manner.  (He first spoke of the seed  - packets now appearing in the  7 stores. They will be regarded as  'I this year's seeds, but might they  Xbe,left overs from last year? .  Seeds.lose their vitality if held  ���oyer,  especially Jn paper  packets, but some seed suppliers are now using foil containers which offer more protection for retention of the  seed's vigour. More expensive,  but worth it.  Many readers will have  already bought seeds but the  urge to get therri into soil i be it  in the house or greenhouse,  must be curbed as before long  they must be transplanted outside. We are experiencing an  unusually warm winter (up to  /date) but the air can change  from warm to cold in a very  short time and the soil out there  is too cold for young seedlings.  The birds, the bugs and the  slugs are also aware of the  warm spell and are on the prowl  for some tender goodies. Don't  let them have a gourmet feast at  your expense by planting too  early, but wait until these invaders have put on some fat  from someone else's yard.  Recently the garden writer in  the Province suggested May or  June for transplanting, but  some seeds can be put out  before these dates., much  before. A very good book on  gardening is The Pacific  Gardener by A.R. Willis, written especially for the Pacific  Northwest. It has sections  devoted to the various times of  seeding and setting out young  plants; ���  Mr. Moore related a story of  his tomato crop. He noticed  one day that his next door  "neighbour was harvesting his  tomatoes into a small pail. Mr.  Moore rushed out and also  picked his first crop of  tomatoes filling a wheelbarrow! On the way back to the  house he engaged his neighbour  in conversation, keeping the  laden barrow in full sight. His  Things are beginning to happen at the United Church in  Davis Bay as plans fdr a new  addition to the building are  rapidly taking shape. The congregation worshipped for^^^  last time on Sunday, February  13,;.yin the little church built  " more .than 35 years ago and the  next day St; John's was cleared  of most 6f its furnishings to  make: way for the workmen  who /"are to remodel the old  structure and build a new sanctuary. ;- '\ '���;..-���  The; first signs of change  came when some large trees  jwer^feliedv the vestibule came  ;j6Uthe c]hur^eMrance;and excavations for footings left the  corner lot hard to recognize.  St; John's has accepted an  invitation from Gibsons  United Church to use their  building for combined services  for the duration of construction. Commencing February 20  each Sunday at 10:30 a.m. car-  pooling at St. John's will ensure transportation for- all in  good time for the Gibsons  11:15 service which will be con-  ducted by the minister,  Reverend Alex Reid. Unfortunately Sunday School and Infant Care will have to be terminated at Davis Bay but these  will resume as soon as possible  in improved and enlarged  facilities.  Dudley Taylor, chairman of  the Building Committee, is optimistic work on the addition  will proceed rapidly baring unforeseen difficulties.  Easter Sunday should see the  new sanctuary filled to capacity- :'"���.���     :;  West Howe Sound Pastoral  Sound of the United Church  held its annual meeting  February 2, 1983 when appreciation was expressed for  the work pf the Old executive  and elections were held for new  officers.

Luckily we got  this dissertation too.  His. high yield crop of  tomatoes came from a bed of  good, very good, soil. That soil  was created, not found. True  there is a layer of good soil called topsoil put in place by  Nature, but it is scarce and ex-[  pensive. Therefore Mr. Moore;  had to build up and supply -a-  large quantity of nutrients \o  his soil in order to get optimum;  results."  One essential part of gardening practice is the building of a  compost heap. It is 7a rich;  source of nutrients'Irxym-  vegetation, animal manure,,  kitchen wastes, such as coffee;  grounds .leftovers,   and'  vegetable parings. From the  yard come grass clippings and  leaves, with a layer of soil in  between   each   addition.  Seaweed is a rich addition to the!  compost as it contains much  nitrogen, potassium and the  important trace elements such i  as manganese, boron, copper,  zinc, etc. Bonemeai is also a  good addition with the seaweed  and the compost heap when  rotted down will add richly to  your wheelbarrow loads of  flowers and vegetables...  especially tomatoes.  Plants have different needs  in order to produce top results, X  and a compost heap may not be  rich in nitrogen, for instance,:  so a visit to a nursery or plant;  store will enable you to get-a  fertilizer to make up the deficiency. The proprietor will be  able to help you in this regard.  This reporter not only enjoyed hearing Mr. Moore, but  was very pleasantly surprised to,  be awarded a Life Membership?  in the Sechelt Garden Club. j\  Other life members areFrank  and Nancy Read, and Ena C.  Harrold.  One of our members, Sylvia  Blackwell, who is an expert in  the art of cake decoration,  presented Mr. Moore with a  large cake, complete with  fence, grass and a garden plot,  all made, of course, with tasty  confections. Mr. Moore was  delighted and called for a knife  so we all enjoyed sharing his  gift.  Mr. and Mrs. Frank Campbell of Gibsons kindly invited  our speaker to be their overnight guest. The crowd of just  under 100 who attended the  meeting were well rewarded to  judge by the remarks heard at  the tea time. -X-  Call the Moving Specialists  Member of      ^dALLIED...

The proposed Sechelt Indian  Band Act suggests four major  changes in current legislation  which would give the Sechelts  virtual self-government. These  major changes include: control  over band membership, allowing the band to decide who its  members are; legal title to  reserve land, which is currently  in the hands of the Department  of Indian Affairs; a phased-in  scheme which would bring all  Sechelt Indians, on and off the  reserve, into the income tax  system; and the establishment  of full local government status  with powers and structure  similar to a B.C. municipality  Even before the subcommittee's positive response  to the proposed act, Sechelt  band officials were optimistic  that enabling legislation^would  be in effect within a year. With  the unanimous approval given  the proposal Tuesday, passage  of the legislation may come  even sooner than expected.

Traff further argued that a  small back hoe used on the job^  was used only part of the time it  was paid for.  Works Superintendent Gordon Dixon defended the  charges saying that rock and  ground water which could not  be anticipated at the time of the  estimate caused the job to be  more extensive than was first  thought.  Dixon said it is customary to  add a 25 percent supervision  and administration vcost to  waterhook up estimates.  Traff wondered aloud  whether a million dollar job  would require $250,000 in  supervision arid administration  charges.  The committee recommended Traff pay the bill within 60  : days and no interest charges  would be added.  si  tWANTEOH  " Used Furniture  and What Have You  UTS  USED FURNITURE  ii  Wrbuv Biht Bottles  886-2812  and conflict within the community.
