 my  A -  LttiISLATIVE DBR^RV  Parliament Buildings  Victoria, B C  V8V 1X4  84 2  ^"^V.-V-r-**-*. *t-*n if...i  A Sunshine-Coast ultra-marathon?  by John-Burnside  It is somewhat inadequate to  describe Alan Howie as a runner. The 38-year old Scots-born  Howie who visited the Sunshine Coast last week is a .  veritable running machine.  Consider a month iri the life  of Alan Howie. In July, 1982,  Howie set "a Canadian record  by running .150.2 miles in a  24-hour ultra-marathon in Edmonton.  Less than a week later Howie"  won a 50-mile race, finishing  more than 30 minutes ahead of  the second place runner.  After a couple of days rest in  Calgary, the indefatigable Scot  ran 350 miles to Slave Lake,,  Alberta, where he competed in  and won a 26.2 mile regular'  marathon.  A resident of Victoria, ^  Howie is one of the brightest.  stars in the international worlb!'  of ultra-���marathon running  . "It was raining and dark  when I came through the Sunshine Coast," said Howie,  "but what I did manage to see  intrigued me."  He also saw advertised in the  Coast News the April Fool's  Day Run from Gibsons to  Sechelt and felt that the half-  marathon would be just the  ideal tune-up for him after, a  50-mile race in the Fraser  Valley. (He set a new Canadian  record in that one, too.)  Unfortunately the organizers of this year's April Fool's  Day Rim changed the date of  the run and Howie arrived on  Jhe Coast to paiticipate only to  find that the run was over.  "- Travelling with him was his  13-year old son Gabe and when  Howie says that had he run  from Gibsons to Sechelt he and  ���his son' would have finished  first and second you have to  pay attention.  .- Howie's interest in the Sun-  around a track for 24 hours.  And if I tell them I'm running in  it they'll all want to come  because they want to beat me."  It might* sound like boasting  but it isn't. It's said matter of  factly as befits a world champion preparing for the most active running season of his  career.  Howie looked over the projected course from Egmont  wharf to Gibsons wharf last  week in the company of George  Matthews of the Coast News  "The end of July there's a  six-day run down in  California," says Howie. "An  86-kilometre event on the Sun  shine Coast the week after that  would just be about right."  The next events in the Victoria runner's busy summer  schedule are the 100-kilometre  ultra-marathon in Toronto on  April 23 and the Vancouver International Marathon on May  1. He has piomised to keep the  Coast News informed of how  he is doing.  If all goes well the Sunshine  Coast could be on the map of  international long-distance-  running this summer. And all  because of a skinny little  Scotsman who first came here  running in the dark and in the  lain.  Since he Appeared on the runn-j"' shine Coast is not limited to the  M"~ ' "' " -.--...  r-        ~,.��-.t.���*.,>,.-...���,,   ���        -..j-,-   -r.���r.-r~n,  ..-   .,���,   ...      ,n,.,i.,     .

Howie has  plans that could make the Sunshine Coast a mecca for distance runners. See Adjacent story. ��� *o*m B��naut photo  ing scenet in early summer' of  1982 Howie has won all his.  races but'the first. He currently^  holds the world record for non-r  stop endurance running, set-1  ting a mark of 187 miles and  293 yards. _  Naturally,* Howie made* his",,  first visit to the Sunshine Coast ��  on foot'. He set off to run from J  . Gibsons to Sechelt annual run,  ' "though he thinks it is'a nice wee  run'. Howie vows to spend his  J Summer    promoting    an  v ^6-kilometre run from Egmont  u (wharf to Gibsons wharf to  f ,coincide with this year's Sea  'Cavalcade and in honour of  t'vGibsdns coming centennial  kelebratipn'in 1986.

Rumours that the B.C. assessments authority office in  Sechelt may be moved to North Vancouver as early as 1984  remained unconfirmed this week; however, it is believed  that assessments' board of governors has approved the  move in principle.  The Sechelt office, which employs 15 people, could be  moved in 1984 as part of a province-wide consolidation of  assessments offices.  Carter in Vancouver  At Carnegie Centre, 401r Main Street, Vancouver,  Dudley Carter, 92 year old wood carver from Sechelt, B.C.  will be featured in the art gallery from May 1 to 14. The exhibit will feature demonstrations by the artist and showing  of the film "Dudley Carter" on May 1 and 8 at 2 p.m.  Carnegie Centre gallery is open from 10 a-.m. to 10 p.m.  For more information call'Susan Gordon at 665-2220.  1  The  *r"*-^*-l     -    -v ���>  Published on the Sunshine Coast  25'* per copy on news stands  April 4,1983    Volume 37    Number 14  fcs i  ? t^M ^__M__H*'^^__|__H_ __& -__B/*^H_aflr aH}^H~  ibng-ri^ririing television show  jpSThe Beachcombers';'in Gib-  3t>ns last-week. v  ){ They kicked off the season  with a show called A Reliable  (Siource byrlongtime series  (writer Merv Campone who is  lone of many, who have come to  itfie Coast,with the show and  ^Become a resident.

Action centres are one way in  \Vhich the unemployed can  ���Receive assistance to deal with  ��� fheir situation.  ,''  With unemployment at-an  ! estimated 36 per cent on the  '(Toast it was recognized that an  action centre here could pro-  tide valuable services. At last  week's meeting Joy Langan, of  the Vancouver District Labour  Council, gave advice on how to  .establish a'centre and how to  obtain funding from the B.C.  federation of Labour to pay a  {so-ordinator io run the centre,  -federal and provincial grants  '(hay also  be available to  -organize staff. Another funding source may be the B.C..  ���Teachers' Federation which  [has set up an unemployed  j teachers centre in Vancouver  and has money available for  district centres.  Last week's meeting was  basically to form committees to  look into the organizational  aspects of setting up the centre'.  The interim chairperson is  Hans Penner of the B.C.  government employees,union,  who was instrumental in promoting the idea of the centre;  the secretary is Ruth  McLockiin.of the Canadian  paperworkers union and Doug  MacKay is the treasurer. Approximately nine unions had  representatives at the meeting  and the committee is hoping for  the support of all employee  groups on the Coast.  There are at present 25 action  centres operating in B.G. JCheir,  main aims are to give people advice on dealing with government agencies and to provide a  support system to help people  deal with the difficulties facing  the unemployed. The centres  try to provide interest programmes, encourage self-sufficiency  and through educational programmes, place the present  economic crisis in an historical  and political context. Perhaps  most importantly the centres  aim to help break down the  isolation many people feel  when they are unemployed by  providing xa place where contacts andlsupport are available;"  -The Coast News production room became, briefly, a TV studio last week Irillhemids^of the hubbub dire^  finds a moment to read the paper. -Fr.nnen��rPho,o  Debate batters  ���f-  is  w  by Maryanne West  Last week's meeting to  prepare for the Sager Commission hearing exemplified the  frustrations which beset school  boards these days. The  trustees'i perception of their  first priority in terms of the  public's demand for the best  education for all the children in  their jurisdiction is continually  battered by the crossfire of  political'expediency. Is it better  to accept the commission's requirements, even though the  whole exercise is demonstrably  insincere, in that it asks for input from the public while at the  same time makes it impossible  for people from the Sunshine  Coast to attend?  Do the advantages of being  there, able to take part in  debate outweigh the symbolism  of refusing to be a partner to  what is so obviously a sham?  These questions had to be  answered before any presentation could be considered.  Trustee Stephen's argument  that "we shouldn't boycott the  commission's mandate, only  the manner in which they are  operating" but that "it is inap  propriate for us to attend if we  believe in the public's right to  participate", won the day with  .only chairman Puchalski  registering a negative vote.  Debate then swirled around  the commission's terms of  reference, couched in typical  political verbiage and open to  any number of interpretations.  Trustee Stephen wanted to accept the widest possible interpretation so that' the board  could have a forum to include a  wide variety of ideas for, improving the school system from  grade 10 graduation -.;��� the re-  iritroductionf of grade 13j to  radical changes in the pattern  of the school year to allow for  more efficient use of school  buildings.   ���  Sftperintendent Denley's  concern was the autonomy of  school boards, he saw*the  whole exercise as an attack on  that autonomy despite a recent  white-paper on the subject of "  de-regulation. "I could make  far more efficient use of my  time" he said, "if so much of it  wasn't taken up in dealing with  Victoria.*'  ,    Geographical boundaries of  this district seemed a strong  argument for the status quo until it was remembered that West  Vancouver would almost certainly lay claim to Bowen  Island, ^an area of this district  which contributes more  revenue than it takes out. As  this is a matter which residents  of Bowen Island must address,  it was decided not to precipitate  any discussion on the issue.  Final agreement was reached  that the presentation be refer  red to the management '���. committee for preparation into an  acceptable format, to be signed  by chairman Puchalski and as^  many other trustees as can be  reached.  If an election is called before  April 11, the, date for this  district to appeaf before the  commission in North Vancouver the whole exercise will  prove to have been academic.  ���?}  On the Inside  The history denied...  ��� ��� ��� .Page  2  Letters................... ..-��� ��� ��� ��� ��� ��� ��� ��� ��� Poge   3  Community news...............

J; Caldwell of $echelt whose  letter appears on page three, it would seem that he is in  danger of being caught up in the emotionalism that he  deplores when he writes: of the propane tanks in Roberts  Creek.,'-,y,\Y,v.V '.'''-/���'������'��� '���"''��� '<y \\''.:''-.XrxXXX'-X^  We. have had letters,-,which stress' the��� satety-and  economy of propane.as.&fuel; wehayehad letters! which  decry, the present. location- for^safety reasons. .Neither'  .approach Is-to'A^^  rr }f' pne. takes a long term* regional' view i) 'cm be seen  that at several lorationson^heiSjii^ .  . dangerously located fii?l4arikV.the\S^  sons harbour; the Esso\jtatfks' in" HbplrinsYjuid ?<Xfort1ri/  There is under way a concerted effort to-relocate all  such tanks in a tank farm in ah abandoned gravel pit  hear Port Mellon'. It seems /fo'us'-a praiseworthy $ffpTt:;,  Better all the various tanks should be located far front ;  residences and highways before an accident takes place- ���  such as took place on the Nanaimo waterfront a -few  years back.   "' 'XX'.':x      : '���"'xXxxxyxxX.'  That is not emotive; it is common sense. Perhaps  director McGillivray indulged in melodramatic overkill  in his recent presentation to the regional board and thus  served more to cloud the issue than resolve it.  ;  The fact is, simply put; if,the regional board is going  to waffle with the. first company whose>teas��is iup'we  will never achieve the safety of a'proijertank' torn for  fuel storage. The companies don't want to have to go to  the expense and trouble of relocating but it' is something  that should be done in the long term interests of community safety. The propane company is not being victimized by being, asked to relocate. Neither is it  hysterical to ask them to do so. It is simply sensible in  the long run that all dangerous fuels be removed from  the vicinity of habitation.     v> ���/\v v!\Y ���  Then we can address ourselves to the question of  transportation of such fuels in trucks on crowded ferries, again hopefully without hysteria or recrimination.

Caption by Helen Dawe.  Van}  A rece^rumiri^ip^  spaceibr^ight jchaiiges 3of  hatred;;and r^igotryfl^ng about  my ears from a correspondent  in West yancouyer'.. The subject under discussion was the  British Empire and itfis  touching that there, are a few  stalwarts left to1 leap to jthe  defence of- that -historical  monument to ineptitude,  hypocrisy, and greed.  First, the .charges:, hatred I  deny as being much too^heavy  , , an emotional burden tppcarrv  ���.' . raround with lone; bigotry^s a  -'  less personal matter, ?t>einj a  judgement made by others1;' but  I feel that I am as freefrom it as  most. Certainly I try to be.  It perhaps needs saying that I  was a British schoolboy once. I  suspect that is a background I  share with my accuser, a Mr.  Crute. As a British schoolboy  my pre-school and early  reading was largely comprised  of such volumes as The Boy's  Book of Heroes.  I remember one Christmas  ' near the dawn of personal  memory receiving such a book  with a glorious cover picture of  '' Robert Clive scaling a church  steeple in his youth. Later he  was to become Clive of India  and scale the heights of the  Anglo-Indian company., There  were also stirring tales of Cecil  Rhodes of South. Africa' and  other empire-building  notables.  Like Mr. Crute I suppose, I  was reared to believe that men  like Clive and Rhodes went  forth with steely vigour to bring  civilization to the benighted  . and only incidentally did they ,  become immensely wealthy.  Alas, with the innocence of  boyhood, went the illusions of  boyhood.  My most recent reading, for  example, has been a biography  of Sir Richard Butler written by  Prof. Edwin McCourt, a  historian at the University of  Saskatchewan..  Butler was a remarkable  fellow. A dispossessed member  of the Irish Catholic landed  gentry, he served with distinction in the imperial army for  thirty years. It was a report  written by Butler while serving  in Canada that led to the formation of the North West  Mounted Police. He also served with distinction in Egypt,  Central'." Africa and South  Africa just before the onset of  the Boer War.  As the chief military officer  in  Sputh  Africa,  Butler  counselled steadfastly against  mflammatory, militaristic *  policies. He was finally removed from his position because of }  his opposition to war with the :  '��� Boers.;.;- . '  . Cecil Rhodes and his cohorts'  were identified by Butler as the  chief force pushing for military   ;  takeover of South Africa, their  interest being in the rich gold  and diamond fields which had  just been discovered.  Butler warned that if a  ���peaceful integration' -with the  Boers was hot/sought. South���  ��� Africa would continue to be  just a thorn in the side bf the.  British as Ireland has been. He  was ignored, the war was  fought and Butler has been proven right.  Incidentally, one of the facts  that was not included in The  Boy's Book of Heroes was that  more Boer children died during  ..the Boer war than the total  t, military casualties on both  i�� sides^Theyjdied of disease and  , malnutrition'.m, concentration  -, camps into Which they andtheir  mothers had been herded by the  British.  In Mr. Crute's letter he  makes reference to Hadrian's  Wall as keeping the barbaric  Scots from the civilized world.  It is the equation of acquisitive  empires built on slavery and exploitation with civilization  which must surely be challenged. As a British schoolboy I was  taught that the Roman Empire  was the great precursor to the  British Empire and like it was  based on a desire for the spread  of Roman law (or British  justice).  It seems historically true that ,  both were more concerned with  dominion and exploitation,  than they were in the spread of  civilization. Catch I, Claudius  on late night Sunday television  for a glimpse of what passed for  civilization at the heart of the  -Roman Empire. ', '  . The imperialists, whether  Roman or British, were in fact  well-armed and marauding  pirates. The British were  distinguished by the pious  hypocrisy with which they  masked their exploitation of  less well-armed peoples.  And, please note, one did not  say the British invented conflict. They utilized and exacerbated it..  It is not bigotry and hatred,  Mr. Crute. It is simply the  history that was denied us* as  boys.  ' i y'Th'e recent federal decision  to allow individual investors,  tax write offs for partnership  research ventures is the first  really promising step the  ministry of finance has ever  taken."  Dr. Pat McGeer, the brilliant  research scientist and the arrogant, pedantic minister of  universities, science and communications in the B.C. socred  government wrote these words  in the March 12 edition of The  Financial Post^ ^ r ';; ;>  He was writing about the  need to promote high  technology investment in  Canada and in particular B.C.1  Dr. McGeer suggested that by  using a variety of tax incentives, similar to those used by  the Japanese, Canada could  develop a truly successful high-  tech industry.  What this really amounts to  is offering tax shelters for the  rich, paid for by the Canadian  tax-payer���a kind of welfare  for the wealthy.  A fellow I met a couple of  weeks ago told me a story to Ut  lustrate what governments  often do to offer welfare to the  rich. Whether the story is true  or not is unimportant--:the important thing is, as far as high-  tech industry; in B.C.. is conr  cerned, there^is a very-strong  liklihood that^resiearch and  development7 is already -a. total  sham and these businesses are  offering; nothing except the opportunity for the rich to avoid  paying taxes, X'-./X  ;    The story involves an exporter in Israel who for several  years made his money by exporting thread. In Israel apparently, the government offers incentives to exporters by  subsidizing them dollar for  dollar of export value. This  particular entrepreneur did  hundreds of thousands of  dollars worth of business a year  by importing huge- bales of  thread from Italy, winding the  thread on to small spools for  .the retail market and then ship^  ping the spools overseas. For  every dollar's worth he exported, the government paid  him a dollar. Consequently,  over the years, he became very  wealthy. '  According to my story teller^  . it was eventually discovered,  that the clever exporter was ac'r  tually shipping the little spools  of thread back to the Italian  manufacturer who would then  unwind the spools back into the  huge bales and ship the bales  back to Israel to be once again  wound onto spools. Over and  over again, year after year, th|  same thread travelled back and  forth while the government  paid the Israeli exporter his incentive.

One can't help but notice the
remarkable similarity between
your current jousting match
with the eloquent Mr. Mills
regarding the number of supervisory positions in the local
school district and the asinine
controversy over the propane
tanks jn Roberts Creek.
. Mr. Mills can rattle off facts
and figures until he expires ofV
old ag£ without having the
slightest effect on your posi-
tion.    No    matter,   what
; ■ arguments he comes up with to „
.  support his-side of the debate,
'{ youare not interested in hear-
Mhgthem. • '
The same situation applies to
the the controversy over the ■
. propane tanks in Roberts,
Creek.^"here are.those who for:
-whatever reason are determin- .
• ed the tanks must go/. If things;
are running true to form, th'ey-
probably don't care where the k
tanks go, so long as it's out of
their* neighbourhood.-   I •<
•wouldn't be surprised to learn ;.
. that- those making; the most ,
t hoise.didh't even live in the area
when the.tanks were installed.
But, oh what a noise they can '
make! There's nothm§ like a';
bit of good old hysteria-
generated by a few ignorant-
remarks to really muddy the-;
waters of the issue. The factX
that those spouting off about'
boiling liquid expanding^
vapour explosions obviously^'
■ wouldn't recognize one if it pcL j.
currredin their breakfast cereals
doesn't matter. The desired,
result is achieved.
You and your reporter'make
it sound, as though ICG cheated
in taking' ninety minutes of
local government time to assure
them that the hysteria is- unfounded. Unfortunately it
usually does take longer to
dispose of garbage than it doe*
to create it.
Xhe really unfortunate thing
is that ICG has probably
wasted a lot of time and''expense trying tp. rationally ap-
■ 'lj>rdach•':; a; totally '.'irrational
'aVSurhent?'People'heat only
what they; want to hear-and if
v one approach to the argument
doesn't succeed, they will'try
another. No one can reason
with a closed mind.
C. J: Caldwell
Editor's Note: Delighted that
Mr. Caldwell is so satisfied
with the status quo. The 'eloquent Mr. Mills' is on vacation
so we will decently leave that
jousting match until his return.
The propane tanks are dealt
with editorially this week.

From the mouths of babes
A few days ago my young son
told me that when he grows up
he wants tobe'able to work to
get laid off. My husband'and I
looked at one another then
laughed uproariously. Such a
comment coming from a three
and a half year old seemed
' somehow ludicrous. .
, But it got me thinking; How
sad that a child of that age
would even know bf such a concept. Although I'm sure that he,
doesn't, fully understand the
implications of what he said,
how ironic that it was said at
all: .
Just what will happen to him
if corporate greed continues to
escalate? What will become of
him if our unions are disbanded, as people like Dick Proctor
insist they must be? Where will
he be if there is no one to protect the rights of the worker?
What will happen if the public,
in their ignorance, continue to
launch their hate campaigns
against the labour movement?
< There is a war at hand—an
economic war. How many
other three and a half year old
children look at unemployment
as inevitable? Will our unions
survive long enough to protect
them, or will our children
become yet another casualty of
economic greed? Will our sons
really grow up to work to get
laid off?
Suddenly it no longer seems
funny. It seems downright

This very talented young lady  gave so very much of herself to  a delighted audience in her programme of songs covering a  wide range of selections. One  moment she would give Bar-,  bara Streisand a run for her  money and Nthe next would  warm the hearts of all by her  unaccompanied selectipn of  old Irish songs. This gaFs versatility is quite amazing. Nikki  Webier accompanied and produced'me levent arid joined in  with Deirdre and'a vocal trio of  male singers in several happy  numbers:'��'. hX':r-XX  Art, Bishop gave some excellent seleeriiohs pnrJjiis electronic "keyboard/ and: *also accompanied the soloist in several  numbers.

('  At the Coquitlam District  Music Festival, with 1,300  dance entries, our own  Deborah Middleton and Karen  Boothroyd were outstanding.  Their parents are justifiably  proud of these lovely girls and  their accomplishments: J  Debbie won the Lynette Joy,  Galer Challenge Trophy for,  "the entrant who has presented  to the audience the most entertaining performance in the  song and dance".  .Debbie   also   won   the  "Madelaine Bouchard Challenge Trophy" "awarded to an  entrant performing in the  balletic medium and showing^  the strongest sense of ac-_  complishment"   and   an!  anonymous bursary. In addition, Debbie won a Mary K.

She'  also received a bursary and her"  marks were in the 90s as well. * -  CENTENNIAL'86 DANCE:  The first annual spring ball '  of the "Centennfal'86" Society held on Saturday night at  Elphinstone high school was  good fun, The group called  "Sunrise" includedmusic  from the Beatles, Presley, even  a medley from the .'20s, and was'  I particularly enjoyed seeing^  some very proper business peo  pie kicking up their heels^ahd;  having fun. There were some  "' pretty, slick dancers, too, ex-  pecially. Steve White^ahd his  wife who positively glided  > across the floor.  Old George Gibson (John  Burnside) and his wife Augusta "  ' Charlotte (Margaret Jones)  were there, with a tiny vignette  of their first landing in Gibsons.

SEA CAVALCADE:  Gibsons Sea Cavalcade,  19813 committee held its first  meeting a week ago Wednesday. Several changes are planned that will not affect the  general ( format of the  ��� cavalcade. One change is that  there will be "no general  meetings because past experience indicates lack of interest and a- waste of valuable  time. Meetings will be held,  however, with actual working  groups and associations.'  The plan is to apportion cer-  .taiitsegments of the cavalcade  to appropriate groups. We  have, therefore, invited the  Kinsmen to take over kid's day  in the park in addition to their  annual parade. Elaine Middleton will co-ordinate the  stage presentation and Cedar  Grove and Gibsons Elementary  schools have promised entries  despite holiday difficulties.  Elphinstone high school will  have its band enter into the  parade.  Nikki Weber will co-ordinate  the stage presentation on. the  wharf as she did last year.  Because Centennial '86 will  already have booths in place  and entertainment planned for  Sunday, Sea Cavalcade will  merge their plans with Centennial '86.  Dog ��bedienee  Class begins May  .

A small but diligent group of  people have assisted the whole  community by donating their  time atjthe Information Centre.  They would not of course expect reward or for that matter  recognition, but due to the  organizing efforst of Pender  Harbour Resorts Association  organizing efforts of Pender  go urithanked.  Ruth King, of the Resorts  Association will be organizing  a dinner for all the volunteers as  a token of appreciation for a  job yyell done. When everyone  helpsi {and appreciates one  another it sure makes the Harbour a good place to live.  Another way in which we're  well taken care of is our ambulance crew. Volker Kaemling  phoned'the other night to tell  m| about bur service. The area  overed is from Wood Bay to  Egmont and we have <v20  volunteers, all have industrial  first aid tickets arid most have  emergency medical assistant  tickets. ,'  Here's some important advice from Volker Kaemling  chairman, Tim Shapcotte  secretary-treasurer, and Linda  Curtiss paid administrator. In  case of an emergency it is important tb have written direc  tion beside your phone.'.'When  you're beside yourself with fear  or injury you often can't even  remember how to get to your  own house. Write it down  noting when to turn off the  highway, how many metres  down the road to go and identify the driveway right or left.  You may think this odd, but I  can assure you, do it, because  you may be. a completely different person in an emergency.  If you have any questions  phone Volker at 883-2531 or  Linda at  883-2456.   The  ambulance number for the  whole coast is 885-5191.  On Thursday, April 14 the  Chamber of Commerce and the  community association will  jointly sponsor a one day  hospitality workshop. A  ministry of tourism representative will be there and all who  have taken a previous course  say it's absolutely great and  very interesting. There's a  limited number who may.  register (no fee) so phone Jack  Heidemaat, 883-9973 or Cliff  Stone at 883-2460  Irvine's Landing  Hall is closed  The Irvine's Landing Community Hall is now in the process of closing.

Some people have already got things started,  others like to wait a bit.,With all the warm weather  we've had the season is certainly well advanced. It is  to be hoped that at the time when we want really warm  growing weather, it won't turn wet and cold. This can  cause seeds to rot in the ground.  I haven't gardened in years, but there was a time  when I did.' Some people only put, in the fresh  vegetable variety such as, radishes, green onions, lettuce, etc. Others do the whole bit including beets,  cucumbers, cabbage, cauliflower, carrots, turnips, etc.  I remember a mistake I made one year when I put in  all my seeds at the same~~-time for radishes, green  onions and lettuce. It all matured at the same time and  what a waste of material, time and effort. I learned to  space out the seedings so*that.there .was a crop of  Shop with confidence.   ;-  _> > .

Coast News, April 4,1983  Youth soccer completed its  season with a division VII tournament with round robin ac-  tjon between two local teams  from Sechelt and Gibsons and  tjwo teams from Powell River.  * The local teams had their  hands full against seasoned  competition and players who  Had been together as teams for  at least one year.  ���i The Powell River Hales  20/20 became the favourites  after a convincing 6-1 win over  Gibsons and a 4-1 win over  Powell River Jailbirds, a team  they had not beaten in eight  matches. A 4-0 win over the  Sechelt Drifters clinched the  first place trophy for the Hales  20/20. ;  Competition for the runner-  up, trophy';���:was much closer.  Gibsons. Elphinstone Recreation played well but came up on  the short end of a 3-2 score to  lose out to the Powell River  Jailbirds  Both of the local teams learned a lot from this competition  and both improved substantially from the first game to the  last. A'tearh representing the  Sunshine Coast has accepted an  invitation to play at Powell  River at their tournament  which is one of the largest in  &,c,..X"r':-rx  Wanderers advance  < Elphinstone Wanderers soccer team has come off with the  best showing of its eight .year  history, completing a VMSSL  season first in division'three,  with a strong 12 wins, two ties  and one loss record.  The local lads proved they  could play good two-way soccer, as they scored 35 goals and.  gave up only ten goals in the  14-game schedule. The team  will be in the second division  next year.  In exhibition play against  higher division teams, the  Wanderers have fared well,  winning seven, tying one and  losing two games.

In the atom consolation  game Abbotsford came from  behind to defeat the Mission  team'3-2 in overtime. The local  atom team, the Sechelt  Shamans, finished second and  lost in the final game against  Hope.6T3. The Shamans won  the Most Sportsmanlike team  trophy in their division.

Co-operation Makes  All the Difference  ]During a hike in the woods, a troop of Boy Scouts came  across an abandoned section of railroad track. Each, in turn,  trittd walking the rails but eventually lost his balance arid  turnbled off.  *  Suddenly two of the boys, after considerable whispering,  offered to bet that they could both walk the entire length of  thei,track without falling off. Challenged to make good their  boajst, the two boys jumped up on opposite rails, extended a  hand to balance each other and walked the entire section of  tracj'ik with no difficulty whatever.  i  Title day of the hermit and lone wolf is gone forever. We do  thinjgs better, we produce more and we live better by helping  each i other. The person who lends a helping hand benefits  himself at the same time that he helps the other person.  Trile reverse is also true. When we don't help each other,  wheni, we don't co-operate, the whole system starts to rattle and  shake���whether it be a community or a business.  In tilhe business -world the. difference between a successful  company and a poor one, an effective department and an  inefficient one is quite often a reflection of the co-operation-  lack oif it���among the people who work there.' ,  -or-  4>\��  i.'l  H 1  When there's no co-operation���no spirit of the helping hand  freely extended���what might have been an interesting,  ' challenging assignment becomes a grudging chore.

'- Given all the above I must  confess to be mind boggled by.  tfie stupidity of the provincial  government,  , Generally , speaking people  are reasonable. Explain the  problem to them clearly and  honestly,* make sure everyone  contributes.their fair share to  the overall solution; be seen to  be 'fair'and" to be treating .  I everyone equally and most peo-  I pie will go along with cutbacks,  Sand make the necessary  sacrifices, if not willingly and  [happily"at least with quiet  \ stoicism,. This seems to me to~be  basic'common sense. So why  would the provincial govern^  ment   in   a   time   of  unf  precedejnted (for social creditf-  economic difficulties, treafv  people in such a cavaliefc  fashion? Do they think, i^.  makes sense to divide and rule?^  Is that why, instead of meeting  with school trustees and  teachers at the beginning, "putting their cards on the table and-  asking for co-operation, they  have consistently created head-  on confrontations?  Although Vander Zalm, the  great proponent of over-'  simplified answers to' complex  -prpblemsc (remember. Vgive*  welfare recipients a.spade") is-,  the current protagonist it.was1  the premier himself who fired'  the first salvo���on" TV no  less���requiring school boards'  to cut back budgets which had  already been approved and only some weeks later .passing,  Iegislation'to give'some legality,  to his demands.  From there the educational  climate in the province has*  deteriorated rapidly, until  from kindergarten to uriiversi- ^  ty there is-a state of chaos and  confusion, nov.one knowing-  wh6 or what course will be-con-"  sidered- redundant  next.*  Trustees and administrators  are no better, off,- putting in  [x- long hours of extra work trying  to hold together educational  standards which have been  built up over many 'years.  Parents and students\'! keenly  aware of the importance of  education in a changing world  are confused and angry.  It's hard to believe there isn't  * a better way than continued  confrontation. The minister  says he's made cuts in the  bureaucracy in Victoria; Roy  Mills will tell you that when he  took his first job as secretary  treasurer of a school district in  the sixties he could phon& Victoria and speak directly to the  head of a department. Now he  has to go through ;'x" number  of deputies and rarely, if ever,  gets to talk to the top  bureaucrat. Obviously there is  a focus for the minister's zeal,  but the premier assures  everyone that no civil service  jobs will be lost. The exercise  more and more resembles a circus juggling act; now you see itf  now you don't.  One can have little confidence in a minister who  changes, his mind so frequently.  First he was going to contact all  .'teachefs individually by letter  -to explain! his latest zero salary  offer; and asked school boards  to supply names and addresses  bf employed teachers and those'  on the substitute: list. Then  changed to message-by-media,  buying space -in the  newspapers/Did his st^ff balk-  at the thought of stuffing over  3,000 envelopes I wonder?  A three page letter over the  signature of the minister was  received by the school board  last week giving two conflicting  dates for the deadline required  for renegotiating a contract  with the teachers, although the  process of arbitration of that  contract is not yet completed.  Several days later another letter  with data omitted from the first  is dictated over the phone  before being put in theJmail.  It would seem as though considerable savings in administration could be made if the  minister and the department of  education could get their act  together.  The idea to save money by  reducing the number of school  districts is riot a new one. It's  easy for Victoria to draw'lines  on a map. This district successfully fought off a move to  run Powell River and the Sunshine Coast as one unit some  years ago. Imagine the travel  and phone bills, to say nothing  of the wasted time and the impossibility of getting to school  board meetings. Two offices  would be essential and, little  Sharon and Ron Webber man the  Mall.  would; be gmried except4iaiger  bureaucracy to cope with "the  more difficult administration.  .

MacLeod  Canadians in general and  .British Columbia residents in  ���particular can be justifiably  proud of our health care  ' system. No one is more aware  * of the tremendous value of our  ^medicare programme than  ); some of our people who elect to  /visit in the United States  ^without taking out additional  ���'health insurance.  ��   Good as our health care  system is, new and innovative  procedures and facilities are being introduced on almost a daily basis. The most recent hew  facility to be noted is the  Sechelt intermediate care society's building now going up on  Medusa Avenue. This will be a  50-bed project plus provision  for 10 day-care clients. The persons who. will be admitted to  ���this facility are too disabled to  'remain in their home but not in  a serious, enough condition to  need the acute care available in."  St. Mary's hospital. Between -  the hospital and the new centre  a bond* of, co-operation has  arisen and the board of the intermediate care society is  grateful? for the use of the  hospital's large board room for  so many meetings.      ,.../..  . Five years ago a meeting of  some interested persons launched a programme to bring-~���-  about the realization of just  such a service. One of those  persons was Bill Cormack who  ���is still a board member. Com:  mittees have been formed to  look after certain aspects of the  project.  Volunteers spend many  hours to bring a project like this  to fruition but the outcome is  worth every bit of time spent.  And the learning experience is  invaluable.  by Dianne Evans  One of thq most delicious  " vegetables, and the most expensive on the produce shelf, is the  asparagus. Some people are intimidated by the idea Of growing asparagus but with careful  preparation and cultivation a  good crop may be produced;.  The most important thing is  to prepare the soil well, and  most growers seem to recommend the trench method for  planting. The bed where the  asparagus is to remain should  be well-drained, in full sun] arid  with pH 6-7. The soil should be  light, deep, loose, free of rocks  which make the spears grow  crookedly, and preferably, free  of weeds, expecially those such  as quack grass and other perennial pests.  Asparagus must be well fed,  so cultivate the soil deeply adding phosphorus and potash at  a rate of about 5-10 pounds per  100 square feet. Dig a trench  about 12 inches wide and deep.  Fill the bottom four inches with  compost, well-rotted manure  or some good fine top soil mixed with dried manure. Fipmthis  down, and flatten. Take the  roots (these may be purchased  one, two or three years old  from a reputable nursery; two  year old roots should produce a  small crop the year after planting) and spread them fan-like  upon the soil, about 18 inches  apart. Cover them with an inch  or two of good garden soil and  firm it down.  As the stalks grow, pull in the  soil from beside the trench until  it is filled in. Asparagus may be  started from seed, but you will  not get a crop for three years  from the time of germination.  Choose a rust-resistant variety,  such as Martha Washington.  A high soil-moisture content  is necessary for good production, so a thick mulch is important at all times. This will also  keep down the.weeds and  eliminate most cultivation  which can disturb the roots. It  should be four to six inches  deep, and preferably chopped  or shredded. Mushroom  manure is ideal, arid grass clippings also do very well as do pea  pods. Whatever mulch used, it  should be neutral pH and have  a high nitrogen content.  After the harvest, which  should take place when the  spears are from four to eight inches high, before the tips begin  to open, protect the soil from  drying out with either a light  mulch of straw or allow small  annual weeds to remain. In the  winter add about three inches  of well-rotted manure. Do not  cut the tops down; they store  food for the spring shoots to  use. In the spring they can easily be crushed and left to  disintegrate on the soil.  If you keep a good mulch on  the bed, the asparagus will not  need watering unless it is  unusually     dry.     When  harvesting^ simply break the  stems where they will; if you  have to cut the stem it will be  too tough to get anyway. Only  pick the large, thick stalks; let  the thin ones grow. They are  thin because their food supply  needs replenishing through the  tops. After the harvest a side  dressing of fertilizer should be  used; three parts greensand or  some other potash source, one  part dried blood, one part bone  meal, at a rate of about three  pounds to a 100 foot row.  You can see, once the initial  work is done, there is not much  involved in growing asparagus,  other than keeping a good  mulch on, and keeping the  spears' harvested as they are  ready. It is a crop only suitable  for growing if you intend to remain where you are for long  enough to enjoy the rewards of  your labour;  Don't forget, if you have  prpbleiris or helpful hints,  please write to me at the Coast  News; it is always good to hear  from readers and I'm glad to  pass on information or to try to  help.

Oratorio performed  Presentation of Stainer's  oratorio The Crucifixion on  March 27 in Gibsons United  Church by the choir .was an  event of which the choir and  assisting artists can be proud.  Under direction of choir  leader Molly Reid, wife of the  minister Reverend* Alex Reid,  the oratorio was well presented  by the choir, assisted by visiting  vocalists and home talent  violinists.  - Of particular notice was the  finale of the oratorio when the  male section, six in number,  gave the audience a stirring sextet which provided, a fitting  climax to the oratorio.  The result of numerous practices was revealed in the fine  performance given by the choir  under the direction of Mrs.  Reid. She had moulded a choir  of 23 into a very good singing  unit.  They were aided by Margaret  Maclntyre at the organ and  three violinists, Kertt Viitanen,  John Inglis', and Dr. Hugh Inglis. The tenor soloist was Bill  Edney and the bass Earl Harrison. With ten sopranos, six  altos and three bass, their  leader obtained a good meld of  voices and accompanying instruments.  Christian Science report  .

This was the tirrie for  at least one trip down to the  beach at low tide when I was a  young lad. Our main purpose  was to dig for clams.  Things have changed on the  beach since I was young!,Two  weeks ago a John; Burnside  photo appeared next to this column and depicted members of  the economic commission  gathering oysters on a beach in  a little cove on Nelson Island-  "When the tide is out the table  is set," was the caption of the  photo.  ' Only in recent years has it  been possible to gather oysters,  Japanese oysters, on our  beaches. Even the common  clam to be found today is the  Asiatic Manilla clam! Both  these foreign' imports have  ". done well in bur waters which is  ; fortunate for. us. because-many  , * of the native kinds of shellfish  ' are hard to f|nd now.    v jV;   ,  '      I'f you We interested in learning about'.Qt^hek kinds wfX  seafood to be? found bn>d,ur  beaches come to th�� monthly <  meeting of the Sechelt Marsh",  Protection Society.

On two previous  visits to Sechelt his topic was  birds; this time it is marine  biology and the title of his address is "When the Tide is out  the Table is Set". The time is  7:30 p.m. on Friday, April 8 at  St. Hilda's Anglican Church  Hall, Highway 101 and Barnacle Street.  I am sure that Wayne Camp  bell will tell us.that the best way ���  to eat oysters fresh off the  , beach is raw with a dash of  fresh lemon juice or Lea & Per-  '��� rins Worcestershire sauce!  So you prefer yours cooked.  Okay, why not roast them in  the shell right on the. beach.  Make sure the shells are washed  clean and free of all sand or  mud. Place them close to the  hot coals of the fire with the  deep side of the shells down.  After a few minutes turn so the  other side faces the fire. When  the shells open they should be  cooked. Open, sprinkle with  salt and pepper and serve in the  deep halves of the shells.  Oysters on the half shell with  a nice���dry white wine. A meal fit  for a king!  Sea you.

Coast News, April 4,1983  5. ���--...  by Ruth Forrester  ;;. The recent demolition of the  '>p\d store on Coopers Green has  ^aroused the interest of many  ���local residents and it has been  (interesting to find out a little of  [jtlie past of this building. The  most accurate and interesting  ^records have been kept by Mary  ^Shannon in her collection of  ,the history, of the Redrooffs  .and Halfmoon Bay area and  'this we acknowledge with  ithanks.  v?On January 30, 1964 there  was a headline which  "read���"Store Gone But Not  ^Memories". This was a report  ���of the demolition of the  ���original store which had been  Jbuilt around 1912 by Hubert  'jKitchin and which was the start  : pf the Redrooffs resort. Six log  '. houses were built���all with red  Iropfs���and a bridge which led  to the rock in front of the store.  .'Gas tanks were installed and a  ,'llag pole with a white flag to  .signal boats that there were  .passengers to be picked up for  .^Vancouver.  I' A small area wasadded to the  vstore for use as a post office and  jliving quarters for a caretaker.  .It was owned successively by  rMr. Peter Milne, the Mackay  -brothers, Carl S.

The suspect was  scared off in his attempt and  ���was located later asleep in a  ditch. It is believed that the  culprit was wandering aimlessly in the area and that there had  been no attempt at a break-in.  j Two deck chairs and a Black  & Decker saw were stolen from  a residence located on Older-  shaw Road near Highway 101.  Clement's    warehouse,  located on Henry Road, was  entered and a quantity of pop  was stolen.  ; Two valuable birds valued at  $200 each were stolen from a  Roberts Creek residence.

It appears that  v&ndals broke into the hall and  h&daparty.  1946. was purchased by Jim,  Cooper.  Around:i930, following the  ��� death of her riusband, Mrs. Kit-/  ; ��hin married Peter Milne arid  together they operated the  resorfefor the'nextseyen years;  Thii was!j?robably the hey day  of the resbi^;-The Milnes built  the Recreation Hall and it was  the scene of many popular  Saturday night dances which  are still nostalgically  remembered by some of the  fathers and grandfathers along  the beach. It was also used for  badminton and there was a tenr  nis court on whaJ is now known  as Coopers Green.  Driring the period of operation-by JheMilnes, the store  reached its'greatest eminence as.  a social centre with much of its  Sergeant King who was ageniai  and much loved man. He  would open the door for a lady  with such dignity that she  would go off feeling like a  queen.  In those gracious days, Mrs.*  Milne would serve behind the  counter wearing white gloves-  and groceries were delivered in  a small  boal^TflVa^OiF 7  "Sheila" which was operated**  by Tom Beasley for Mr. Milne.?  The mail was dropped of fat the  same time. In the late thirties  the resort was bought by Carl S.  Bell.and management was  taken over by the late Frank  Lyons whose wife Eva ran the  dining room for several years.  Around 1954 Jim Cooper,  vvho then owned thepropetty,  moved his grocery business out  of the old store into the newer  tmmm  more spacious recreation  building which had been built  by Peter Milne. This is in fact  the building whicti was just,,  demolished.
