 LEGISLATIVE LIBRARY     84.2  Parliament Buildings  Victoria, B.C.  V8V 1X4  object to new  proposal in Gibsons  ���as'  r> ,-  by Judith Wilson  ;? Docal residents concerned  about the impact on their area  Gf;a;proposed /re-zoning;; and  tlie^ representative of a rival  commercial-developmenti appeared at a public hearing last  week to present their views on  the re-zoning of property on  thelowest side of the Twilight  Theatre fronting on Highway  .101 in Gibsons.  By-laiw 350-2 would allow  i Park Plaza Developments to  have the zoning on their property changed from Commercial Development Area (ODA)  to Commercial (C-1).  The question of why a commercial developer should  receive a benefit from council  in the shape of a zoning change  was asked by % Mr. Meyer's,  representing Sunnycrest mall  development; He asked what  benefit the community would  receive in return. In objecting  to the development he cited the  "cataclysmic commercial  chads" created in Nanaimo  and PoWell River by unwise  commercial expansion.  Mi-; JCen Wells, one of the'  developers of the proposed  shopping plaza, stated that the  development would benefit the  community by contributing to  the establishment of a firm  commercial core and a solid tax  base in the area. He felt that the  development would complement the Sunnycrest mall by bringing more buying public into  the area and solidifying the  commercial core in the upper  town area. "Mr. Meyers has a  business axe.to^^ind aivirjs^  afraid of competition-,<.iU.be, <  said, -    -       -   ,  The impact of the re-zoning  on the nearby residential area  of Davis Road was discussed by  Mr; B.Fredericksen.

'  Cites economic difficulty  Canfor seeks  pollution relief  -1  by George Matthews  Offering a forthright assessment of the financial position  of the Canadian Forest Products pulp operation at Port  Mellon mill manager, Harry  Cargo and technical superintendent Don Stuart sought  regional board support last  week for the mill's request for  a ministerial variance order  for pollution control standards^ Port Mellon.  The Canfor operation,  which has already spent over  $21 million since 1977 in bringing the mill within provincial government pollution control standards, is requesting the  variance order for economic'  reasons. Mill officials are asking for a two-year delay in implementing two further pollution control projects, one a  vent, stack scrubber and the  other, a recovery particulate  control. It is estimated that  ite��^^iB.?*eer5i5^  sions on an average or eight per  cent. Neither project would affect the mill odour.  Mill manager Cargo told the  regional board directors that  their support was needed in  order to convince the Ministry^  of the Environment that the -  variance order would not meet1 ^  serious social and community"  reaction and he assured the   '  board that the delay would be 4 '���  temporary, until economic  conditions allowed the project   '"  to go ahead. ^'.^ <  Cargo explained that the mill, *���  had been particularly hard hit  by an international surplus, in  palp production capacity,  Sweden's currency devalua- ���  tion, and the growing acceptance of the inferior "southern-  pine" pulp produced in'the   ,  U.S. As a result, Port Mellon is   )  currently marketing pulp at  pre-1979 prices. Furthermore,  sales volume in 1982 was down  30 per cent and sales revenue  was   $56   million   below  forecasts. - X-  The board, as is its polity,  took the matter under advisement and indicated a decision  would be made by the next  Election is this Saturday.  ���John Burnside pholo  Joyce Kolibas and Bud Koch are candidates for mayor of Sechelt.  For Sechelt's mayor  A quiet campaign  Both candidates in the  mayoralty by-election in the  , village of Sechelt are expressing  a preference for a low-key contest as they enter the last week  of the campaign. Polling day is  Saturday, March 19 in the  municipal office in Sechelt.  Veteran municipal politicians Bud Koch and Joyce  Kolibas are hooked up in a  straight two-way fight for the  position of mayor, vacated by  Koch six weeks ago. Former  alderman Charles Lee  withdrew from the contest last  week.?  ....���'���''We have to become responsible for our actions," said the  ex-mayor.  The only note of controversy  in the quiet campaign concerned a report that a group, of  citizens supporting Koch had  offered to assume the cost of  the by-election caused by his  earlier resignation.  In an interview with the  Coast News last week Koch  denied knowledge of the  citizens involved and said that  he did not consider the suggestion to be a proper one.  Koch described the two years Alderman Kolibas, who(has  regular rrieetintr.in two weeks. ^brwirwuktwoyears Alderman Kohbas, who has  the opinion of tfie union, which '  Cargo said has been positive,  should be forwarded in writing  to the board before a decision is  made on the matter.        a rewarding experience.  *'Working with ar strong  council resulted in some very  positive accomplishments,"  said Koch. * There is a lot more  to be done and, if elected, I will  do my best to see these programmes through to their filial  ���stages.";. .,������'���:���:;..���'.���:  Koch reiterated his concern  for "the taxpayers' money''.  for six years, stressed the need  for co-operation in tlie'work of  council. ''-XX'":  "You have to co-operate  with other groups in the area,"  said Kolibas, "be it in the Indian band or the regional  board."  While expressing concern  about the increasing tax  burden, specifically the cost of  sewer service, Kolibas said that  she intended, if elected to make  few changes.  "The present council  members have their assignments and are working  with them. The addition of  Graham Craig to council  (elected alderman by acclamation) will mean that the work  load will be eased when we  again have a full council. The  present council has been doing  well," said Kolibas.  Kolibas pointed out that,  with her six years on council,  she has more experience than  all of the other aldermen cOrtir  , bined. She is the only candidate  for office who actually lives in  "I have no ^personal axes; to  grind," said the alderman. "I  have a proven record of working well with council and can  devote full time to this demanding job because I have no  business connections."  Kolibas said that she intended to keep a tight rein oh the  purse strings of the village in  the interest of lower taxes.  Qf'school tax increases  Business bea rsb runt  Recent rains washed out the trail in Brookman Park, collapsing a sand bank in the process. See story  belOW.7. - ���Oorje Matthew* photo  Erosion increasing  Brookman Park in danger  The possible need to rename  Chapman Creek's Brookman  Park to Brookman Pond was  raised at last Thursday's  regional board meeting as  directors grappled with the problem of collapsing banks and  washed out trails in along  Chapman Creek.  Last week's intense rainfall  caused a further collapse of  sand bank above a curve in  ; Chapman Creek approximately  200  metres  from  the  highway. As a result, several  large trees cascaded into the  creek and four or five large fir  "' trees were washed out to sea.  Area D director Brett  McGillivray, a geographer of  Cap College, said that in his  opinion the problem would  continue unless action is taken  to redirect the creek away from  a developing ox-bow where  most of the problem is occurring. It was suggested that work  done near the creek by two  private parties and the depart  ment of highways under permit  may have caused the problems  in the creek, "Ten feet of property has been lost in just this  last rain'' said McGillivray.  Area C director Jon McRae added that any possible salmon  spawning in the creek has been  lost due to silting.  Directors recommended that  a letter outlining the problem  be sent to the Ministry of  Enrivonment asking that the  ministry enforce its jurisdiction  in the creek and to investigate  any unauthorized work in the  area. The board also pointed  out that it was not the job of the  SCRD to take financial responsibility for the damage to the  park.  Oft the  Theatre review.

Page 14  Water system envied .PagelS  UThe British; Columbia  School Trustees-: Association  released data last week on "an  unfair system of property taxation which plaices a disproportionately large share of education costs onto the backs of  y homeo>pvners and a business  5 community already bowed by  the recession".  In a prepared press release,  Joy Leach, BCSTA vice-  president, said the statistics bring a new perspective to the  issue of education finance.  "This study proves that the  cost of education has been  made to appear increasingly  unreasonable because the  government has slowly but  steadily withdrawn its financial  support while passing the  burden onto property owners.  "The data shows that B.C.'s  per capita property tax has  been the highest in Canada for  the past 12 years. By 1980  B.C.'s per capita property tax  was $492 compared to the national average of only $352.  "And no one can claim that  property taxes in B.C. are the  highest because our education  costs are the highest.Statistics  Canada reports that in 1980  B.C.'s per pupil cost of $2,638  was well below the'national  average of $2,711."  Leach said the BCSTA study  approaches the education funding issue from many angles,  all of which show that the  ^government of B.C. assumes  tesponsibility for a much  smaller percentage of education costs thanother provinces.  "Government contributions to  'education, from revenue  sources other than property  taxation, average 45 per cent  for Alberta, Saskatchewan.  Manitoba and Ontario," said  Leach, "but in B.C. last year  the government dropped its  share tq 32.6 per cent. Property  owners had to make up the remaining 67.4 per cent."  "The B.C. situation is an  anomaly," said Leach'. "Property owners are being forced  to assume an even larger share  of education costs at a time  when their financial health is in  a seriously weakened state.  "And the situation is most  grim by far from the business  perspective," said Leach.  "Our statistics reveal that for  the four years 1980-1983,  residential property owners  have received financial relief in  the form of the homeowner  grant to keep increases to 51 per  cent, roughly in line with increases to school district  budgets of 34 per cent for the  same period. But the business  community has experienced a  77 per cent rise in property  taxes.  Boy Scouts seek aid  If you're competent in first aid or in some of the aspects of  camp-craft (mapping, charts, compass, orienteering, survival, tracking, packing, cooking), scoutmaster Larry  Traverence would like to hear from you.  Volunteers are needed to instruct scouts and cubs in these  fields and to examine them when they have completed their  badge requirements. Adults with particular skills in other  areas may also be required to assist scout and cub leaders for  short periods of time. Details may be obtained from the  scoutmaster at 885-3809 or from the district council  secretary Mrs. Stephanie Jackson at 885-5904.  Food Bank distributes  After many weeks of preparation the Sunshine Coast  Food Bank will have their first distribution of food on  Wednesday, March 16 from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. at St. Bartholomew's Anglican church hall, North Road and  Highway 101, Gibsons. .   . .  At the present time the Food Bank volunteers are aiming  for a distribution day every second Wednesday providing  contributions and donations increase. Please call 886-7410.  Disarmament meeting  An organizational meeting dealing with world disarmament will take place on Tuesday, March 22 at 7:30 p.m. in  the library of the Roberts Creek elementary school on  Roberts Creek Road.  As grassroots support for peace-oriented action grows  throughout the world, this is the opportunity for us to do our  part here at home.  All are invited.

VKl  Levels ��f feiareaiacracy  Dare to criticize the level of bureaucracy and watch the  office holders and the job seekers leap into action. We  refer you to a letter recently received from secretary-  treasurer of School District No. 46, Roy Mills. The letter  appears on page 10 of this issue of the Coast News.  Make what you can of it. From here it seems to reveal  more cleverness than light.   ������..������  Let's first make plain thatihe recent criticism of the  level of educational bureaucracy is not directed at any individual presently in office. It seems a fact that this country with its many levels of government supports far too  many people on the payroll of the government, About  most-of them there seems little that can be done. The  educational bureaucracy, however, is hired locally.  The main arguments presented by Mr. Mills, if one can  correctly glean them through the forest of nomenclature,  would seem that School District No. 46 is slightly below  provincial average in terms of numbers of administrators  and that ministry guidelines; will soon allow the appointment of one more when the school population rises slightly.  Surely a criticism of levels of bureaucracy cannot be expected to be satisfied with the argument of provincial  average. There are too many high-priced managers  throughout the system. The average is too high.  As for ministry guidelines, well Mr. Mills may conceive  of something as unquestionable as the Divinity when he  speaks of the ministry. A recent visit to Victoria,  however, left one pondering on the fine old mansions  commandeered for government use with their fine bay  windows crammed with government filing cabinets; left  one pondering the large and expensive motels turned en  masse into government offices. When the term 'the  Ministry' is heard here the image that comes is of a  sprawling bureaucracy, inching ever farther out from the  legislative centre, of an army out of control and feeding  itself huge.  It may surprise Mr. Mills to realize that there are some  for whom the guidelines emanating from such a place do  not inspire much enthusiasm or respect. The question of  bureaucracy is just too important to be left to the  bureaucrats.  As far as education is concerned the contention is that it  is over managed. The classroom teacher, without whom  there is no education, is the lowest individual in an expensive chain of command. Treated for the most part by their  superiors like children, teachers tend to respond accordingly.  At the end of his letter secretary-treasurer Mills makes  much of the fact that 15 years ago there was a superintendent and four district teachers in this area. (District  teachers, he informs, were, teachers unassigned to a  school. What it was they did who can say?) He does not  mention that the superintendent of the time was responsible for Powell River, the. Sunshine Coast; and University  Hill without benefit of the twoor three underling superr  visors that the ministry now in its corpulent wisdom  determines that we should pay for.-  :X-��.,. ���.,.... /,.-., :.��X ������,-. �� -X  ������-��� ���������'���������.i'?yij":  ...from the files of the COAST NEWS  Vi  5 YEARS AGO  Police in Gibsons request that the public take  the time to lock their  vehicles.

Gandhi's non-violent  movement of non-co-  operation has gathered  strength since his return from  his early triumphs in South  Africa. It has brought the  seemingly invincible British  Empire to the realization that,  indeed, one day India will; he  ruled by Indians; -;j  The moment in the film  comes when a row of uru^orm-  ed British, admiiu^tr^qrs>iite  eluding the viceroy himself "isit  ^across a splendid .conference  :, - table^rom aroW;ofvattejgfcted  r. Hindu; and; l^osleirt: l���i|||&i  "''. leaders including Gaiidh^^^  In a decidedly ScpttishIRecent one of the uniformed  Britons intones that .the difficulty is that there is more than  one India. There is, he says  sententiously,. a -Hindu India  and a Moslem India and he expresses his gravest fears about  what would happen to the  Moslem, minority if the British  administration were to leaved  The irony lies in the fact that  the speaker was a Scot. A few  generations before it is highly  likely that his Celtic ancestors  had been slaughtered at  Culloden by the same Anglo-  Saxon power in whose service  he had risen so high; the same  Anglo-Saxon power which a  few generations before that  had, under;;the leadership of  Oliver Cromwell^ slaughtered  the Celts in .Ireland".  Gandhi knew his history and  of course his eyes twinkled as he  listened to the pompous, and  possibly hypocritical, fool.  He would know, too, that at  the very moment: of utterance  the remnants of the, ancient  Celtic people who survived in  Scotland and Ireland lived lives  of poverty almost as harsh as  the hungry millions in Indian.  And this in the mother country  of. the world's richest empire  near the zenith of its wealth and  power.  It js perhaps even arguable  that the English learned the tactics of divide and conquer with  which they ruled; an; empire  through their thousand-year  struggle with, the Scots. They  finally subdued the stubborn  northern people by playing one  clan against the other; by  favouring and rewarding some  who then aided them in  slaughtering or rendering  powerless the others.  Be that as it may, nothing in  their history allowed the  righteousness and moral  superiority they affected and  this the Indian leaders across  the table knew well.  Still the ancient tactics worked. By playing on the fears and  encouraging-the ambitions of  the leaders of the Moslem  minority the British fanned  whatever mistrust there was  between Hindu and. Moslem  and left a sub-continent behind  in which two mutually hostile  armed camps glared at each  other in fear and hatred.  It is not only in India we find  quently abandoned for some years. The structure was moved twice;  in 1946 to border Shorncliffe Avenue and in 1976 to face Cowrie  Street. When renovated and reactivated at the new sites; indoor  plumbing replaced outside waste closets, theolrJ wood stove, and oil  lamps were superseded by modern heating and electric lights, the  building was enlarged, and the exterior was stuccoed. The students  in 1920/21 included children of several pioneer families, including  Delong, Fihdlay, Gilbertson, Gugin, Hammond, Martin, Mills and  Regelous. Caption by Helen Dawe.

Mugabwe and the minority  followers of Nkomo.  Everywhere that was once coloured pink on the map there  has been the same pattern;  In Ireland today the same  tragic pattern repeats itself: the  minority Protestants in the  north have been the conomical-  ly favoured and their leaders  are fanatically loyal to the  British without whom their  privileges might vanish.

SZ  as  as  There are two incontrovertible truths about amateur  theatrical performance on the  Sunshine Coast: the facilities  are dreadful and the talent is exceptional. This is no less true  today than it was a dozen or so  years ago when the Driftwood  Players was formed. Ensemble  Theatre's productions, The  Little Prince and Many Moons  maintain that tradition.  Both plays were presented at  the Survival Carnival two  weeks ago and both were performed again last weekend at  the Roberts Creek Hall. It is  hoped that both plays will be  performed in local schools and  vthere^re, plans to present them  at this year's Sea Cavalcade.  the Little Prince, adapted  from the Antoine St. Exupery  story by the talented coast resident Michel Mombleau, is a  charming, quasi-philosophical  and faintly pretentious piece of  one act, directed by one of the  grand ladies of coast theatre,  Nest Lewis. The adaptation is  , faithful to the original, down tb  the fast cuts and weak transitions and is simply and tastefully performed by Mombleau  himself as the Little Prince and  : local actress, teacher and Coast  News reporter, Judith Wilson.  Mombleau is an accomplished mimist and presents a  workmanlike performance as  ; the quaint visitor from another  plant. In both expression and  movement, he captures the simple charm of his character. A  more economical and crisper  blocking of the early scenes  might have established a clearer  definition of the little fellow he  was portraying, but the  fascination of the children's  faces which lined the stage  seemed to justify the lack of  definitive movement.  zsz  ZE  as  The Man Who  Became His Hands  for John Burnside  The man who became his hands  is all calloused palms  arid frost-bent fingers  Enormous with scrabbling  they claw on through life  pulling the spent body behind them.  The man who became his hands  has worked the worked-out streams  scraped the looted claims  for sixty struggling summers  The Yukon bars  have swallowed each sparse poke  then pointed him up-wilgprness  to scratch the gravel again.  The man who became his hands  will die spreadeagled  against the cruel huge land  in the frigid belly of winter  His only widow���  the motherlode he never found  His only testament-  soot from a perished fire  scrawled on the parchment snow.  as  as  Peter Trower  as  Judith Wilson, clearly a  journeyman actress, plays the  ancillary roles of flower,  geographer, fox and pilot. Ms  Wilson understands theatre,  and when she is on stage, the  crispness and confidence one  expects from thoroughly professional acting is evident.  The set is appropriately simple and uncluttered and the  costumes, designed and made  by director Lewis, were particularly (effective.;  The play like the book;  depends on; illusion and the .  suspension of reality and the  only minor: disappointment;  and thisjholds equally true for  Many;/Mo.ons, i^emsh from  technically weak lighting: and  the surprising lack of magic  and illusion. Both plays provide fantastic opportunities for  tricks; illusions and magic, and  except for one stunt ably performed by the Royal Wizard in  Many Moons, those opportunities were not developed. ;  Many Moons, a livelier but  less disciplined one act play was  a showcase for the considerable  talent of Neville Conway. An  artist of renaissance diversity,  Conway not only wrote the  music and lyrics for this adaptation of the James Thurber  story, he created what was I  believe, theibest minor role; as  . the goldsmith. ��� .'  ; '.�����'.  The spoiled and petulant;  princess was played to perfect  - tion by Nancy Conway who isi  herself a beautiful princess.!  The interplay between Ms Cibh--:  way and her indulgent father-'  the king, played by John  Bolton, is a highlight in the ac-  ,��� tion.  Bolton is particularly effect .  tive. when working with Con-*  way and his bizarre little jester:  played with mad cap:'  mimickery by Chris Carrow.i  Bolton's interaction with the;  other characters however, or  when he has the stage to himself;  is weakened by some poor tran-5  sitions and what appears to be*  weak direction. A, week of"  hard^ disciplined work and*,  some -tightening; of whatever'  script" writing there is, would.  improve this; production'  tremendously.  ..As with Wilson's perfor-;  mahce in The Little Prince, the  experience and professionalism  of Selia Kairstien as the Grand  Wizard overwhelmed what was  otherwise a clever but .inexperienced cast. A tighter hand  in direction and taking advantage of some marvelous opportunities for magic tricks would  have captured the audience  even more than it did. The 30 or  more children at Saturday  night's performance sat open-  mouthed and in awe of the action.  Mention should also be made  of another highly polished and  studied performance by John  Johnston as the Royal:  Mathematician. Johnson clearly knows what he's doing on,  stage.  Again, tremendous talent  and a totally inadequate theatre  characterized these latest productions by Ensemble Theatre.  m  fva  J.5S *'**i** "i���t **K' ���* LW-~  lV,^��*^w*i��ws��ay^^<^jt^  *7v-T-iii^T-v; J^T^-T^^V  i  !  i  I.

Mrs. Fleming would  ^also find, if she requested information, that it would be  'supplied willingly and  Courteously, as would be the  "case with anyone else.  The  fervor of my initial  �����-,  response was undoubtedly attributable to my clear recollection of Mrs. Fleming taking a  swing at the school board over  the Pender Harbour pool, in  complete ignorance of the  wording of the agreement  governing the operation of the  pool, and of her taking a swing at the school board for not  getting a Knowledge Network  satellite dish, in complete ignorance; of the fact that for  over a year the school board  had been doing all that it could  ) t6 obtain several dishes. Informed ; -criticism does not  generate any hostility in me, it  is unmfprmed rciriticism that  does,; especially when there is  no need for; the critic to have  been uninformed.  Mrs. Fleming could be' a  very positive factor for education in this school district, she  has the knowledge, training  and experience, in short the  expertise, to be just that.

I think that if pro-lifers are to  a;vbid ' beihg labelled  "repressive" or "reactionary"  they must show a concern for  improving the support system  for women whose youth, poor  economic situation, etc., make  them particularly vulnerable to  perceiving abortion as the only  ��� attStyeff^Of t eri^iex te.r^a'l-^  pressure is applied to women to  abort, and this shows a general  disregard of the importance of  human life;  ^'Pregnant women^ whatever  their - : situation, need  reassurance that they are mak-  '..' iiiiliv" '������..V';V ":������'.'���'���'.

Indian Affairsi, You now have  one less cheque to process. It's  working, isn't it.  Andy Jack is dead. Choked  to death on hisi own vomit,  Drunk. Seventeen years old.  Bright, sensitive, full of ambi-.  tions.;   ;;; ",  YeSi he could have left thee  reserve; moved to town, but he  opted to stay with his family  and help but where he could.  And yes, he could have stayed  away from the liquor, but really, what else is there to do on;af jj  Friday night 70 niiles from.ttie> ;  nearest town, and stuck on.V',  dry river bed in sub-standard ��  housing that has little in com-'~  mon. with the farm with its  horses and cows that were once  the family's?  Andy Jack is dead. I knew  him for a time. I was his teacher  once; Now he lies in the only  place that is growing. What ���  progress that graveyard has  made through the years.  Letters to the editor are not  going to bring Andy back. Nor  is it going to make my anger go  away: This is written only to try- -  to open some eyes, and to condemn what we as a society have  done to him and his people. We  killed hini. We must start to  help the other Andys survive:-.;. - ~  ;   ;     Joanne Dickeson  Lee's election comments  Editor,  The manner in which you  report the Koch election issue  does your paper credit.  It has, however, caused my  phone to "ring off the hook"  with people in and out bf  Sechelt expressing dismay at  the statements and actions of  ;Koch.777.������;������;>::r:..rx.Xx^X,*' *  In my opinion there is  nothing more demeaning to the  citizens of Sechelt than to have  the aspirant to the position of  their first ekiie^  -assuine^the^ciUzeh^  ^le^res^t^fer the democratic  , formatr and theirpwn'depehty  ;2mdi;self-esteem,;'as>^  ''forty pieces of silver'' to elect  Koch to office, This is a near  regression: to the English Rotten Boroughs of a century ago.

LocaHSaU*  A Inquiries  884-5353  Covering  the Coverage  by Jim Ansell  Homeowner's Package Policies:  ' Almost all owner-occupied dwellings are insured  under a Homeowner's Package Pohcy (H.O.) form.  /With slight variations, virtually every insurance company offers this type of package. It is an excellent  policy, combining multi-peril coverages with simplicity  of form.  The H.Q.; form consists of many coverages consolidated into one policy. It provides for coverage on  the house, outbuildings, personal belongings, additional  living expenses and includes a comprehensive personal  liability section. The key figure on this policy is the limit  carried on the house itself. All of the other coverage  limits (except liability) are based on a percentage of this  --amount.. ������,/.  There are three types of H.O. packages available:  Standard Form - By far the most popular and least expensive. It is a "Named Perils" policy; in other words,  it tells you what you are covered against.  Comprehensive Form - Just the opposite of the Standard Form, it is by far the least popular and most expensive. It is an "All Risk" form, meaning it only tells you  what you are not covered against. If it does not state  otherwise, you must be covered.  Broad Form - This is the middle of the road policy,  combining "Named Perils" cover on personal belongings and "All Risk" cover on buildings ���  As probably 85% of H.O. policies are written on the  Standard Form, we will concentrate on this for the next  few weeks.

SECHELT MAYOR:  The Sechelt village would do  fine with Joyce Kolibas as its  mayor. Mrs. Kolibas is steadfast and true, knowledgeable  about municipal affairs and  Sechelt business with a good  council to back her up.  SUNCOAST PLAYERS:  I spent an entertaining evening watching "Barefoot In The  Park" by Neil Simon. If only  the building had been as warm  as the audience's reaction to  this play produced by Gordon  Wilson and ably directed by  Joe Harrison. Ronnie Dunn,  once again displaying her  natural born talent to act, was  hilarious; Les Fowler, Ron  Cole, Pat Thibideau and Harry  Pepper also gave fine performances.  Sechelt elementary school  gym was the theatre; the heat is  there but you have two  choices���either to hear the  thespians or be warm, so the  heat had to be turned off during  the acts.  TIMBER DAYS:  Publicity man Joe Benner is  doing a fantasitc job to help  make this year's Timber Days  another fine community event.  This is a great aid to chairman  Dorothy Goeson and the others  who work hard on behalf of the  village's biggest event.  It is the people who do the leg  work, the phoning, letter  writing, arranging for things to  happen, willingly giving their  time and energy and gas  money, that make such an  event possible.

Their ages range  from six to 16 and our own  Nicky Weber is the lady Who  gets together with them rand  teaches them to make great  music. The kids love it as was  shown when they made their  debut at the recent Survival  Carnival in Gibsons, and the  audience loved them too.  Still, another of Nicky's  groups made appearances and  performed at the same show  and were equally well-received  by the audience. This is a group  of men from the Sechelt senior  citizens who are known affectionately  as  the��� ' 'Sixty  Nirters".' They have^madeTap-  pearances at several functions  and^are always a great hit.

Arrangements were made for the  next auxiliary fund-raising  event which will be a Spring Tea  at the hall on the afternoon of  April 9, so bear this date in  mind. Donations of baked  items will be most gratefully  received:  Those of you who do not care  to be actually involved with the  auxiliary can feel that you are  helping in some way by baking  up a few goodies and contributing them to the cause of  St. Mary's hospital.  All auxiliary members were  urged to attend the first general  meeting of the new setup of  auxiliaries to St. Mary's. This  will take place on Tuesday  afternoon of March 22 at  Roberts Creek hall. The time is  1 p.m. This is the meeting at  which you will be voting in the  new executive who will represent us all in the coming year.  There is something else  which those of you who are not  members of this association  may do to help out. There is  always a great need for knitted  items for the hospital gift  shop���mainly baby sets���so if  there is anyone but there who  would care to do some knitting  for us you could give our president Alison Steele a call at  885-3973 and she will be happy  to provide you with the  necessary wool.  There was some discussion at  the March meeting as to  whether or not to get back tb  evening meetings and the vote  went in favour of continuing  with our Monday morning sessions. The meetings are held on ,  the first Monday of each month  at 10 a.m. and the next one will  be on April 4.  The Halfmoon Bay Recreation Commission have now  changed their meeting times.  They are now going to be on the  second Monday of each month,  the first one of these being at  7:30 p.m. on March 14.  Everyone is welcome to attend  these metings.to help plan activities for the young folks of  the area. Welcome Beach hall is  the location.  DIANA SEES THE QUEEN:  One Coast mother along  with son Paul were very thrilled  on Tuesday when they were  . able to get into the new stadium  to see the Queen. Diana Griiner  had planned to take both of her  children but unfortunately lit-  . tie Alexis was sick and unable  to go along. What a disappointment for one small girl to have  to miss that trip of a lifetime.  Particularly pleasing, at least:  to this viewer, was the singing j  ,��� ofthe 7,000 childrenffrpm Yan-'?  ���'. couver schools who sounded so  .enthusiastic and wonderful.  There's nothing in the world  like the sound of children's  voices in song. Equally  displeasing in my view was the  use that our premier made of  the occasion to boost himself  and his party.

All the Queen hubbub  reminded me of when I saw the  Queen in 1971 in Burnaby. My  mum and I decided to make the  effort though we weren't quite  sure why. Also Burnaby was a  lot less crowded then so we  could get quite close and park-  ing   wasn't   a   problem.  Well���when the moment came  no matter what you might  think���the Queen was absolutely stunning. She simply  exudes graciousness and goodwill .

Coast News. March 14.1983  by Vene Parnell  The popular "Rocky  Vasalino Show'' is back this  week���with a difference!  They're bringing witjh them  new songs, new costumes and  best of ail, a gala atmosphere as  Elphie's hosts a week-long party for the group to send them  off to New York.  NEW CONCERT SHOW:  In the six weeks since the  group's last appearance at  Elphie's Cabaret, the six musicians have been working hard  to change their show and expand it from the '50s rock 'n  roll format they have found so  successful in the past.  The "Rocky Vasalino  Show", with its lias Vegas  polished slick, has become the  , highest-grossing cabaret act in  Canada during the last three  years.  "It's time to move on to the  big time," says a group  spokesman. This means they  will have a Phoenix-based  agent Charles Johnston, who  recently organized the successful Beach Boys Canadian  tour.  It also means the "Rocky  Vasalino Show" will become  an opening act on major concert tours for name bands such  as the Righteous Brothers and  Three Dog Night.  "We're not trying to become  the Village People, but the guys  will each dress in their own  style, adding more colour and a  contemporary look to the wardrobe.

We rage at \Jin*  justice aadwanttd throw tables-  e��yer when confronted* with current'examples'of corporate and  t political f eudalisii^f which we  are the victims.

Deep intricate  t psychblogicM motivations may  be at work, and heaven help  you if you stumble over them  inadvertently. A financial  booh lightens week.'  TAURUS (Apr. 20-May 20)  A common goal which has  united a group blooms triumphantly and then a splitting  apart occurs. This is a natural  outcome of the goal's achievement, Do not force affections.  Allow distance > and retain a  glint of shared victory to glow  in eyes when you meet. Each  now carries the power of the  group.  GEMINI (May 21-June 21) 'XXX'  Inner resolution of a conflict  reflects a victory which is difr  ficult to mirror externally due,  to bitter resistance from others.s  Believe it or not, truce will ensue if you presevere. This is ��  time to gather resources^  evaluate and refine plans.

Resist urge to control Others.  Transformation of values is  painful but provides harmonious change.  LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)  You are granted a coveted  position of privilege but worry  about inexperience to cover  finer details. Trustingly to seek  instruction will augment, not  lessen status. An unassuming  mariner assures others of your  dedication to ideas rather than  self-aggrandizement.; "-.  yiRGO(Aug. 23-Sept. 22)      ^  You emerge victorious after#  a longlbattle to rerestablisliieer-''  ^itsMBtideas&rid>stJEmdiards?as \n-  violable.

LIBRA (Septv2t3-Oct. 23)  ...-Be "sensible and yielding in a  dangerously unbalanced situation and your deliverance will  be swiftly achieved. Although  first efforts may not bring  about satisfactory returns, they  do remove barriers to subsequent activity. Cover material  needs, yet do not cringe before  selfless serviceful explorations.  SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22)  You attract people with  spiritual insight who help you  with soul growth. Avoid intrigues. Do not idealize love.  Realistically anticipate unfortunate outcome of sequential  events and your preparation  can cut losses and turn tide.  SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-  Dec.21)  It is difficult to maintain enthusiasm for work and joyful  emotional level during present  impasse. Lack of return is an  encumbrance which does not  signify wrong direction. Patience and perseverance will  gradually open doors to fulfill  your needs.  CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-  Jan.19)  You are demonstrative and  affectionate and want to push  people a bit to set them in motion. Although this is a positive  tendency, beware of over-  manipulation (see Cancer  message). Subtle reticent  pressure followed by openness  and a low profile can bring rela-  tionships to a new level  peacefully.  AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)  You may feel it unfortunate  at this time that you have the  ability to explore numerous  avenues for expansion and to  provide support for people  with deeper troubles than your  own... but it is not. Rest on your  own strength awhile longer.  PISCES (Feb. 19-Mar. 20)  Acquainting yourself with a  new situation in employment or  environment may initially  result in defeat and attempts to  try again may prove to be futile.  Merely a gentle cautioning introduction, right timing will bring opportunity around again.

Longtime Trower fans will  find perhaps a wider range of  subject matter than they have  met before, with the possible  exception of his'Ragged  Horizons volume.    '  New readers will find the  richness of imagery and lyrical  power which makes Trower  one of the finest poets practising the craft. There is also the  lovely empathy with 'the ancient woman' in A Music  against Midnight; the wry self-  mockery of Annie of the Corridors and Drunkwaik.  Goosequill Snags is an admirable addition to the body of  Trower's published work; a  must for those who know his  wOrk; and a true delight for  those just making first acquaintance with the poet.

"Meals are getting boring," he replied as he rummaged in the fridge in  search of excitement. He gave a sudden cry of horror.  "What's this great hunk of flesh covered in bits?" he  screamed. I sighed wearily. "That hunk of flesh, my  child," I said prosaically, "means that in eleven days time  you will not be eating spaghetti." "Wanna bet?" he said.  You too may be having problems with your family and  what they think they should eat; perhaps it's Spring! 1 am  willing to bet, however, that mine will gobble up every  bit of corned beef that I give them in eleven days time.

Sprinkle any remaining mixture over  the meat. Cover the dish and keep at room temperature  for 24 hours.  Next day, turn the meat over, cover it again and place it  in the fridge. Repeat this process for 9 more days.  Drain the meat, rinse in cold running water and remove  any spices.  Put the brisket in a saucepan and cover with cold  water. Bring to boil and drain.

Great plans are  afoot, and much money will be spent on the preparations  for this great event which is to take place only 3 years  from now. And when you get to be past 40, those years  seem to slide by rather too quickly.  ; All of which Is a reminder to ourselves that we, too,  have only 36 months to prepare ourselves for OUR own  centennial, ��� the-year George Gibson walked ashore to  explore the potential of this area for a settlement he was  planning for himself and family.

Estimated value, $2,000,000 as a finished  buildl.ig.  Please note that the society comprised of willing  workers from all walks of life in Gibsons, Is planning to  give us this building. My wife and 1 are members. You,  too, can join for $12.  To give us this recreational structure with all its multipurpose potential, the various committees are busy raising cash in a variety of ways. One committee chairman,  Marilyn Ranniger, tells me they are planning a major Spring ball to be held in the High School gymnasium on  Saturday, March 26. It's a formal (dress-up) affair and I  think that's a great idea. Marilyn assures me that the orchestra (band) from Vancouver has been especially  selected to suit the occasion. They will be playing "middle of the road music", with something for everyone  from the Presley and Beatles era and beyond including;  waltzes, polkas, etc.  It sounds like a very good time could be had, with  drinks at club rates, and light refreshments served too!  Doors open at 8 pm, Saturday March 26 and the price is  $10 per ticket. Tickets are available at Maxwell Pharmacy, Don's Shoes, and at Ken's of course!  Plan now to attend and let's have a ball!

Then you went on to  say that, "Mills overlooks the  fact that there have indeed been  increases in the educational  bureaucracy in this school  district which are escaping consideration when cuts are being  made." You commented that  there used to be one senior  educational administrator in  the district, now there are three,  and for a while we had four. In  that 12 years there hasn't been  much more than a 20 per cent  increase in teachers or pupils in  this district, and would I point  out where else there had been a  tripling of manpower locally in t  the last dozen years. So now I '.  feel obliged to take issue with  you. According to the Public  School's Annual Report for  1971-72, which was a dozen  years ago, we had 2,468 student, 101.6 teachers in schools,  and two district employed instructional staff, not counting  the Superintendent. Those two  teachers would have been one  supervisor and one district  librarian. The total teacher  force was therefore 103.6, for a  district pupil/teacher ratio of  23.82. In September of 1982 we  had 2,866 students,  175.35  teachers in schools, and five  teachers not assigned to  schools,   for   an   overall  pupil/teacher ratio of 15.91. So  that's a 16.1 per.eeptincrease in  students/ a 72.6 per cent 'in��XX  crease in the number of  teachers assigned to schools,  and an overall increase of 74.1  per cent in total teaching staff.  Sixteen per cent increase and  over 70 per cent increase is a  long way from your figures of  20 per cent for both.  This leaves us then for consideration, and probably argument, the matter of district  staff, and you may not like my  analysis because it does not  support your contention.  District staff positions are  divided by the regulation of the  Ministry of Education into  supervisory and non supervisory. Persons holding non-  super-visory positions have no  authority over teachers and  are, therefore, considered to be  in a helping or supportive role.  Of our present district staff,  two have supervisory authority, i.e. the Superintendent and  the Director, and in that regard  then there is no change from the  two persons having supervisory  authority in 1971. Three of  those  four positions are  associated with our Special  Education Programme; which   >���  is a million dollar enterprise  consuming 10 per cent of our  operating budget. The two  special counsellors work directly with students, teachers and  parents, and the Coordinator  spends most of her time in tlje  schools in a helping or advisory  role to teachers and^prihcipals.   I  It may be worih^oting that the  -X  salary of-all three of these   |  teachers' is accepted by the  Ministry of Education as an ap-  proveable and shareable part of  our Special Education budget.  That leaves us with one person,  the District Principal, to compare with the one District  Librarian that we had back in  1971, and half of the District  Principal's duties are spent  supervising the Learning  Resources Centre, which used.  to be the major responsibility  of the District Librarian back  in 1971. My conclusion then is  that there has not been the  enormous increase in senior  educational administrators  that you complained about.  When the School District exceeds 3,000 pupils, we will be  entitled by the Ministry's provincial supervisory formula to  have an additional person of  supervisory status. If the  District Principal is then  replaced by a person of supervisory rank, then we would  have three persons who could  be classed as senior district administrators in place of the two  that we had in 1971, which  would be a 50 per cent increase.  You can't have it both says,  John. Your reference to us  "having three senior ad-  H WANTED  Used Furniture  and What Have You  AL'S  USES FURNITURE  Wf buy Beer Bottles  886-2812  ministrators and it used to be  four" would indicate that you  considered the Resource Centre Coordinator to be a senior  administrator. In that case we  had four + superintendent =  five, and in 1971 we had two -f-  superintendent^ three, which  is a_67 per cent increase and  therefore less than the increase  in school assigned teachers,  which was 72.6 per cent. Then  we did cut one, the Resource  Centre Coordinator, to give  your present figure of three  plus the Superintendent to  compare to the 1971 position of  two plus the Superintendent.  That's obviously less again  than the teacher figure, plus we  did cut someone from that  district staff, and cutting one  Out of four bfbne out of five is  a bigger cut than the rest of the  system endured.  By any consistent and logical  application of the figures it  cannot be true to say that the  educational administrative  structure has increased more  than the classroom teaching  force and to say that it has  escaped cuts. Using your approach, it had increased  somewhat less than the  classroom teaching force but  was cut. Using my approach of  counting only supervisory  status persons as senior administrators, they have not increased at all since!971 despite  an increase of over 70 per cent  in the number of persons supervised, but have not been cut.  And how do you feel about  the 1968-69 figures, John? The  combined: enrollment of this  district and University Hill was  2,950 students, there were four  district employed teachers here  and one at University Hill, plus  the District Superintendent.  Why, compared to 15 years  ago, we look positively  understaffed at present.  One last thing, I assure you  that the Board specifically considered at some length the  duties and responsibilities of  each member of the district's  edudational staff, supervisory  and non-supervisory, during  the first and second budget cutback programmes imposed on  them during 1982.  I trust you will accept these  numbers and comparisons as  an adequate explanation and or  correction of the points made  in your editorial last week.  Yours sincerely,  R.Mills  JAMES P.

Report from Ottawa  by Ray Skelly, MP  The fall in the world price of  oil from $34 a barrel to $30,  with rumours of it plunging  even lower, has effects far  beyond Arab courts and the  boardrooms of New York.  The drop may signal some  important benefits for working  Canadians and lead the way to  possible recovery from the cur  rent economic woes that have  left almost 2,000,000 Canadians without jobs. If the lower  prices continue, consumers will  benefit as the cost of most commodities goes down.  But the volatile world energy  situation dramatically points to  the near-sightedness of the  Liberal government's recovery  strategy. The government pinned all its hopes on rising  energy prices. The government  calculated that rising energy  prices would be the backbone  for generating revenues that  would bring Canada out of the  recession. That strategy, lauded by Liberal cabinet ministers  from coast to coast and the Na-  . tional Energy Program (NEP),  is now bankrupt and Canadians face an uneasy future.  The domestic price of oil and  gas is determined by the 1981  agreement between Ottawa and  the provincial government in  Alberta. It is an agreement that  never took into account the  prossibility oil prices would fall  on the world market. It assumed Canada could hold prices  just a little below the world  price thereby giving us some  advantage and, most important,   guaranteeing   high  Coast News,  government revenues through  the taxation of oil.  But the government's financial calculations are pie in the  sky because of plunging world  energy prices. The real tragedy-  is that the government based its  economic recovery strategy on  rising prices. That policy lies in  shambles and Canadians will,  once again, pay the price for  poor government manaige-  ment.  How big will the loss be? One  estimate is that for each dollar  decline in the price of a barrel  of oil, federal government  revenues are reduced by about  $1.4 billion between now and  March 14,1983 11.  the end of the Ottawa-  Edmonton agreement in 1986.  The provinces, at the same  time, will lose over $700  million.  As a result of this horrendous planning, Canada is  entering a critical period  without a certain knowledge of  how much income the government will have���income that is  badly needed to stimulate  employment and make way for  recovery.  It is money we cannot afford  to lose. It is money we cannot  make up without higher taxes.  n rates will  M  it  500  475-rr;  a  450  400  u  >  P*  /1?  o  ,  *&  tf  PQ  425-  ��  s  f --fr    *1  vHHr  x,��. j ins  D  Z  wn the number of claims is the  eater increases  T  he red line is a graph showing the  number of claims for property damage,  injury and death on B.C. roads.  Your Autoplan rates will stay within  the 6% restraint plan for 1983. BUT;  driving down the number of claims is the  only way to avoid greater increases  in the future and at the same time, reduce  the terrible tragedies that are of such  great concern to our Government.  The Insurance Corporation operates  under a mandate to break even each  year, without profit or loss. We estimate  that we will have to pay out almost  3/4 of a billion dollars in claims, or an  average of about $2 million a day in  1983. That's about 94�� of every premium  dollar we receive.  Therefore, to avoid a major premium  increase in 1984, there has to be a  reduction of 22,000 claims from our  projections for 1983.  Together, we can drive the cost of car  insurance down, by taking a little  more care, and driving a little more  defensively. A good start will be to note  the six most commoniactors that  contribute to accidents:  ��� Exceeding the speed limit.  ��� Alcohol.  ��� Driving without  due care.  ��� Failing to  yield right of  up  unsafely.

Rough and tough was the way they played it Saturday at Elphinstone field. Gibsons won 8-3. See story  beiOW. ���Jay Pomrrel pholo  ������'*���". ��� ' ��� ��� . ��� f  Gibsons roughs up Rowers  by Jay Pomfret  The game of rugby is played  in all corners of the world.  One of the interesting aspects  of its origin is that it has  always remained a nonprofessional sport. In other  words, for all the blood and  sweat that the athletes put into  the game, the only payment  that they receive is the love of  the sport.  Spectators who are not  familiar with rugby often walk  away wondering to themselves���1 don't understand  how anyone could possibly  play such a madman's game;  or did you see Kennedy belt  that guy?; or that ref was.,  useless; or we sure beat the  crap out of those guys today.  Saturday, Gibsons Rugby  Glub walked into first place  with a 8-3 win over the Vancouver Rowers. If they had  spent more time concentrating  on :the game rather than  criticising the ref everytime he  blew the whistle, they may  have won 18-3.  It was a close, extremely aggressive game. The Rowers,  having beaten Gibsons in the  fall, is the only team to defeat  our local side all season. Obviously the game meant a great  deal to our players, in  numerous cases too much of a  deal, for they were frequently  penalised for a scrappy style  of rugby.  Winger Jim Attenbough  provided first division quality  Roberts Creek  running, scoring twice in the  second half. His speed and  down-right determination won  a great deal of admiration for  the 50 or so spectators. Both  convert attempts were wide.  The Rowers played an intimidation style of rugby and  to ok many advantages.  Perhaps this meeting will be a  lesson to Gibsons. Next week's  action returns to Vancouver  where Gibsons takes on:> the  North Shore Capilanos.  Once again the golf course is  ready for all our ardent  golfers. March 15 is the  scheduled opening date. Starting times will be in effect. So  don't forget to phone the pro  shop and request a tee time.  It would be a great idea to  start the. habit of replacing  your divots ..on the fairways  and repairing the ball marks  on the greens as the season  progresses and we will all enjoy a great summer of golf.  Senior men's day under the  guidance of Art Kiloh and Jim  Nielson have arranged for the  usual Thursday morning get  together. First tournament will  be March 17 at 8:30 p.m.  Or. March 20 the annual  spring open tournament will  be held. A new format will be  used this year in the form of a  mixed scramble. So register  early for an enjoyable day.  Don Sleep and Freeman  Reynolds took top honours in  the winter tournament. Walt  Nicolls and Vic Vaughan forced the winners to the 20th hole  before surrendering.  The pro shop has been all  spruced up for opening day  and some good bargains will  be available for our bargain  hunters.  750 TO 2250 SQ. FT. ALL OR PART  3 BAYS, 14'x14' O.H.

The ducknappers did leave  three ducklings for the  crestfallen six-year-olds to continue with for their student  studies project. The fact that  they left one of each colour  would seem to indicate a  calculated heist.  Was it just a prank? The  ducks were far too small to be  of any use as food. It seems like  a pretty dirty trick and not a bit  funny. It's like robbing Santa  Claus. The grade ones are having a hard time understanding  why anyone would doit.

Seat belts save lives.  by George Matthews  A series of three public hearings - one each for Gibsons,  Secheit and Pender Harbour  are soon to be announced to  gather input from individuals  and interested groups to help  form a Community Development Corporation on the Sunshine Coast. This was the outcome of a joint meeting held  Monday, March 7, of the  Economic Development Commission and the Tourism  Development Committee  struck by the Commission last  fall. The goal of the proposed  Corporation is the development of permanent employment opportunities in the  tourism industry.  Two guest speakers addressed the meeting, both from the  Nanaimo development corporation: John Bernard, director, and Don MacMillan, coordinator. They told the meeting  that the Nanaimo corporation,  the first of its kind in Canada,  began eight years ago as an  employment advisory society  which, after fiveyear��, received  a $500,000 no-strings grant  from the federal government to  incorporate a wholly-owned  subsidiary under the name of  Colville Investment Corporation. In the last three years,  Colville Investments has  created hundreds of permanent  jobs in the Nanaimo area and  doubled its assets to exceed a  million dollars.  "We are witnessing a trend  towards self-help" said  Nanaimo director John Bernard. "No longer can we expect  government to help us - we have  to help ourselves. Government  can provide the stimulus, the  seed capital, but local expertise  and direction can make it grow  far better than central government can."  The Nanaimo corporation  operates in two tiers: 12 directors of the employment advisory society represent institutional and special-interest  groups in the area; these directors appoint the board  members of the investment corporation - people chosen for  their investment and management skills rather than their  representational value.  The corporation becomes involved in non-profit activities,  directing government make-*  work funds into projects of  maximum community value,  and in direct private-sector investment on both loan and  equity bases. A similar  organization is proposed for  the Sunshine Coast.  When the Tourism Development Committee first began  work, it seemed that promotion  was all the community needed.  "Increased promotion during the prime tourist season  would be irresponsible at this  time" said committee chairman Richard Tomkies. 'The  facilities we have are already by  and large, full June through  August, besides, the chambers  of commerce and the councils  are already set-up for promotion. What we need is a means  by which new facilties can be  created, particularly for offseason tourism, expanding the  industry base in a planned,  orderly way. What we need,  when we need it, where it's  needed - plus integrated promotional activity to fill it  -that's what a community  development corporation can  do for us and it's a gap  nobody's filling right now."  The first function of the proposed development corporation would be to assess those  areas of the tourism industry  holding the greatest expansion  potential for the mi nimum required investment, with jobs,  permanent jobs, resulting.  Then would come the process  of evaluating proposals from  the community to determine  which meet the criteria best in  terms of overall community  benefits. Ih addition to advancing investment funds for successful applications, the corporation would be able to provide services not now available  in the community, ranging  from viability and market  studies to simple legal and  fiscal planning advice, these  within the context of local  knowledge and understanding.  It is interesting to note that the  Nanaimo corporation today  receives the majority of proposals on referral from banks  and other loan institutions, and  by advancing funds after  screening their viability, help  "lever-in" two and three times  as much additional funding to  get projects underway  Nanaimo coordinator Don  MacMillan put it this way:  "Our local expertise, both in  terms of the market the individuals applying for funds,  has become trusted. The corporation has become the  catalyst in some very exciting  developments. You can do that  too, right here on the Sunshine  Coast."  Dates for the series, of public  hearings into the development  corporation idea will be announced soon. It is to be hoped  that representatives of our institutions and special interest  groups, as well as interested individuals, will attend and lend  input. Let's make our community development corporation truly a product of the community.  Commission  kept busy  The Economic Development  Commission has received 96  enquiries since it began operation alderman Edney told Gibsons council last week.  This represents a potential of  $8 million of investment. Efforts are at present being made  to find out what percentage is  actually materialising.  M*^ BaV Gov't.

See story below.     jo��n Foster photo  Metal sculptor,  an original talent  by Joan Huestis Foster  Hidden away in the woods in  Roberts Creek you will find, if  you look hard enough, an  amazing collection of unusual  birds. They range in size from  one to three feet and are the  work of sculptor Axel Stenzel.  One of the rare joys of a continuing interest in art is the  discovery of original talent and  Stenzel has talent to burn.  His work is rough textured,  welded into shape out of bits  and chunks of old metal. His  observing eye; is flawless. His  clay is old bicycle chains, nuts  and bolts, bits of iron and odds  and ends from a welding shop.  His creative work has wit and  flair. The shapes and attitudes  of birds in flight are amazing.  The work is realistic but  because of his medium it is  abstract at the same time.  Chickens/roosters, turkeys,  dragons and exotic fish abound  and come to life on Stenzel's  Roberts Creek acreage.  Although Stenzel has had little formal training in art he lived within the vigorous art  circles in West Berlin where he  grew up. With his wife Ingrid  and two daughters Sarah and  Jeanette he has been settled on  his acre in Roberts Creek for a  little more than a year. Behind  in Germany he left a field of  birds. It would be nice for us if  he would send for them.  You've heard of tips on the  stock market, well this is a tip  on the art market. When the big  city gets its hands on this  delightful young sculptor he  will soar well out of our range.

School Board news  From a small two-room annex of Sechelt elementary in  1965, West Sechelt school has,  this year, moved into a spanking new school complex and  will celebrate its formal opening on May 17, expanding to in-  clude    grade    seven    in  September. Principal Bob Cotter welcomed the school  trustees and a capacity audience of parents, friends and  siblings who filled the gymnasium to enjoy the students'  presentations including songs  by the primary choir conducted  by Mary Chambers and a gymnastics display by the newly  formed group coached by Mike  Metcalfe and Carol Ireson.  Paul Kelly's grade fives,  picking up on the new consumer education course for  grade 10 gave us their version  alerting us to the wiles of television advertising. The message,  "no one smiles doing  housework except the lady you  see on TV" but that like other  essential chores many hands  make light work and it helps if  everyone pitches ih and does his  share.  Shirley Bailey's grade six  recorder group also entertained  as did the intermediate choir  conducted by Carol Ireson,  with special recognition going  to Frances Kerr and' Kristi  Beachman for their duet  "Tomorrow" which brought  the children's part of the evening to a close.  Janet Speer, speech therapist  for the Davis Bay to Egmont  area, who replaced Randy  Johnson last September,  described her work with preschoolers, children and adults.  She spoke appreciatively of the  support for this service, funding for which is shared by the  school district and the Ministry  of Health, saying that although  she has worked in cities such as  Boston she has never found  such a co-operative and supportive atmosphere in which to  work.  Children with language  disorders have often been  treated as if they were slow  learners and it is the thrill of  one's professional career to be  able to identify such a child and  watch him/her respond to  treatment.  Mr. Barry Burch from  ICBC, a former teacher from  Cowichan now working for  ICBC to develop materials for  schools re traffic safety and to  work with teachers, introduced  himself and the programme to  trustees.  A letter from the minister of  education stating that he is not  prepared to approve any addition to Cedar Grove at this time  was received with disappointment, but not surprise by the  school board. As the date for  the presentation of capital expenditure budgets is being  changed to May/June, trustees  decided to wait until then when  the Cedar Grove addition can  again be put forward.  The latest victim of the cutbacks to post secondary institutions seems to be the teacher  training programme for industrial education at UBC, the  only such facility in the province and one which cannot  keep up with the demand for  treachers. Trustees agreed to  support the appeal to Dr.  McGeer and a letter will be  prepared for the next meeting.

Regional board Superintendent of Works Gordon Dixon  and Dayton and Knight  engineer Argris Berzins were  the guest speakers at a meeting  of the Elphinstone Electors'  Association held last week.  Their topic was the regional  water supply.  Speaking first, Dixon told  the meeting that in 1969 the  water utility had 375 connections. In 1983 it has 3800 connections.  ' 'That is a 1,000% increase  in 13 years," said Dixon. "The  replacement value of the -  system now in place is $30  million. The debt load is $4  million."  Dixon pointed out that the  cost of the user had undergone  one 25% increase in the 13  years and that in the same  period the cost of electricity  had risen almost 300%.  He said that because of increased Hydro charges for  water pumping systems increases could be expected.  The primary area of concern  for water supply was in the  Grandview Road area.  Dayton and Knight engineer ���.. ,  Argris Berzins said that the in- ;  tent had always been to use the  Gibsons system as storage but  'Gibsons backed out at the last  minute'.  Describing the present situation, in which water has to be  pumped at Leek Road and  stored at Payne Road, as a  'stop-gap measure' Berzins  said that he had urged the  SCRD to build for generations  to come.  Despite existing difficulties,  Berzins said the regional system  was the envy of other communities in B.C.  Dixon and , Berzins agreed  with Fred Holland, long-time  Works Superintendent for Gibsons, that the bottleneck in service was caused by inadequate  pipes down Henry Road and  along the highway.  Regional board director for  Area E (Gower Point-Pratt  Road) Jim Gurney told the  meeting that the regional  board had offered to share the  cost of new pipes with Gibsons.  "For their own reasons, they  have expressed no interest,"  said Gurney.
