 I  I  Fun in the sun time on the Sunshine Coast. The recent spell of    glorious weather made Davis Bay a favourite place to be.  w   ._s ���Joha Baraiidepholo  t?t    "*  Economic Development Commission  Surpasses all expectations  in first year of operation  !���  I  ��1  ;��J  by George Matthews  - ��� '��� The first annual report of the  'Economic Development Com-  rnission of the .Sunshine Coast  regional -district was presented  ���to   the   regional   board   last  ���Thursday by commission chair-  ' man Al Wagner.  1 Wagner's report summarized  a year of remarkable achievement by the commission and in  particular by Oddvin Vedo, the  ��� economic, development, com*  -missionerr,j w^^sx ^f^''"  - Greeted last May, when he  began the job of commissioner,  with a fair degree of skepticism  .from   some   local   political  ' leaders, Vedo has transformed  the position into the most successful and dynamic development agency on the Coast.  ��Among the achievements.of  the commissioner, as outlined  in Wagner's report, are: the  self-help workshops for small  businesses, the organizing of  Small Business Week, last October, participation in the Off- <  shore Oil and Gas Conference,  co-ordination of Sunshine  Coast participation in the Boat  and Sportsman Show, organizing the Canada I fund raising  banquet and liaison with the  Power River economic commission and a variety of federal  and provincial agencies.  In terms of local business activity, the economic cornmis-  cluding NEED program projects, that could result in 200  jobs and millions of dollars in  investment on the Coast.  The new Bella Beach Motel,  is directly attributed to the initiative of the economic commissioner, as is the proposed  theraputic mud bath, a million  dollar construction project  scheduled to be completed this  fall.  In responding quickly and  effectively to a federal government funding offer, Wagner  told the board, the commission  established a community job  creation committee which so  far this year has attracted  769,000 dollars in grants for six  proposals, with indications of  more to come. ,  Another commission function, the Tourism Development  Committee, has a' proposal  pending for the formation of a���  commumty-development * corporation which, when realized,  will become a funding'agency  for the development of a solid  tourism facility infrastructure  for the Coast.  Further, the commission has  actively encouraged the  development of a permanent  aquaculture industry on the  Coast which has helped bring  in a $312,000 NEED grant for  the establishment of one new  operation in Hotham Sound.  So far, our region boasts three  of the only five operating  salmon farms in B.C.  Wagner's report also alerted  the board-to the need to begin  to plan now for the massive influx of visitors expected during  Expo 86. He mentioned the  commission's plans to establish  an Expo/ 86 Co-ordination  Committee to promote the  developtnent of the kinds of  facilities needed to take full advantage of the Expo traffic  ~ niVtto mentioh tfie Writtrects of  ^thousands of people' who  would visit our area if, as is  hoped, Canada I wins the  America's Cup and the  challenge race is held here on  the Coast in 1986.  Wagner's report concluded  with glowing praise for the  work of the commissioner's office in exceeding all expectations for achievement in its first  year of operation.  Mr; George Gibson might  have managed a smile; last  Saturday if he had witnessed  thecommunity spirit evident in  the town heihelped found. The  Centennial '86 project, which  will commemorate the centen-  nial of his landing in the area,  received a considerable boost  from the first annual Centennial '86 Telethon.  Despite the fine weather,  over $7,100 in pledges was raised, all items in the auction were  sold and both the in-house and  TV bingo drew many participants. The money raised by  the telethon will pay for the architectural drawings for the  proposed cultural/recreational  centre to be built adjacent to  the aquatic: centre.    ���  Both individuals and community groups donated  generously to the project. Cloe  Day pledged $1,000; $500 for  acoustic equipment for the  theatre and $500 towards the  architect's fees.  The grand, piano which will  be purchased soon by the Sunshine Coast Music Festival  Committee, will be placed permanently in the theatre in the  centre. Over $8,000 has already  been raised for its purchase.  The West Howe Sound  Recreation Commission pledged $5,000; the Bank of Montreal, $500; the Sunshine Coast  Credit Union, $500; and Jan  Hansen of "Hairlines", $100.  Greg McConnell, president  of Coastal Soundwaves, pledged $500 from the group and the  proceeds from their next per-  -formahce.  Members of the community  who wish to make donations  can phone them in to  Elphinstone secondary school,  the municipal offices or the  Bank of Montreal in lower  Gibsons. :  The stars of the "Beachcombers", Jackson Davies,  Robert Clothier, Pat John and  Bruno Gerussi took turns call��  ing the TV bingo. The main  prize of $1,000 was shared by  Muriel Sestrap and Lloyd  Smith. "World renowned auc-;  tioneer", Brian Butcher fulfill--  ed his audience's expectations  in his conduct of the auction.  Organized by Lyn Vernon, it-  raised over $1,000 for such  items as a Cariboo wagon  wheel, "with genuine cariboo,  droppings".  The telethon show was filmed by the students of the community TV! class under the  direction of Mrs. Marta  McKown. Organizers of the  telethon, Mr. Barrie Boulton  and Mr. Jack Copland, praised  the professionalism of the  students who, led by Darin  Macey and Rick Buckmaster,  kept the show running  smoothly for nine hours.  After first subdivision  Ada Dawe names  Wants 'system that will work  Vaughan favours numbers  ?x  f  Regional board area A  (Pender-Egmont) director Ian  Vaughan told the Coast News  Sunday, that contrary to  reports in the newspaper last  week, he is not opposed to a  house numbering system for  his area.  ��� Vaughan said that he opted  his area out of the proposed  system because he was convinced it wouldn't work, not  because he didn't believe in  house numbering. An ambulance driver himself,  Vaughan told the Coast News,  'Tknow how important these  things are better than most  people."  "If a numbering system that  works can be found,"  Vaughan said, "I'll back it 100  per cent." Director Vaughan  said that what the proposal he  has seen means is that a 'grid  system' would be created with  totally unrealistic reference  points. "Under that system,"  he said, "as soon as a road  took a 45 degree turn, the  whole grid would become  meaningless.  "What I'm really concerned  about is spending a lot of  money (probably $100,000 in  our area alone) on a system  that isn't any better than the  'turn at the old house past the  burned out Pontiac' currently  in use.  "Stuart Lefeaux has apparently come up with a system  that he says will work," said  Vaughan, "and if that's true  I'll be the first one to support  it.  According to Vaughan,  Lefeaux will make a report to  the regional board on his  numbering system in about  three weeks.  The regional board has been  seeking a numbering system for  houses in the regional district  for some time now. The purpose of numbering residences is  to aid fire fighters, ambulance  drivers and other emergency  crews to find houses quickly in  emergency situations. While  $15,000 has already been spent  in the initial planning stages, it  is expected that completion of  the project will require substantial further spending.  Director Vaughan said that  he isn't particularly worried  about the cost, as long as the  system works. "I'd rather  spend more to get a good  system, than less for a. bad  one."  In Hotham Sound  Water plan beached  B  ;"The Sunshine Coast regional  board confirmed its earlier  decision Thursday, not to  recommend the proposal by  Mr? Colin Beach to construct  water export facilities in  Hotham Sound.  <���  ��  .The confirmation came as  the^result of a discussion which  arose from a letter to the board  from Mr. Michael'Gray, president of Harmony Seafoods  Ltd., warning of the potential  impact on the mariculture industry in the sound of a water  exportation facility.  Gray told the board in the  letter that Hotham Sound is a  near   perfect   but   delicately  balanced environment for  mariculture operations such as  his own, but even a slight variation in water temperature and  salinity levels could seriously  damage that environment.  Area A (Pender-Egmont)  director Ian Vaughan summed  up the board's reaction. Said  Vaughan, "I think we made  the right decision here, it would  be foolish to destroy an area  like this just to haul water".  A board member confirmed  that the Ministry of. Lands,  Parks and Housing turned  down Beach's proposal a week  ago,; arid that it was unlikely  the/- proposal will be reconsidered.  f Cycling group starts up  A newly-formed Sunshine Coast Cycling Association will  mark its inauguration this week with a trip to the Roberts  Creek picnic site at the bottom of Flume Road.  Cyclists from Gibsons and Sechelt are invited to participate. On Sunday morning Gibsons cyclists are invited to  foregather at the medical clinic; in Sechelt the gathering  place is the parking lot of the Trail Bay Mall.  Call Oddvin Vedo or John Shaske for further information.  Here comes Benny  Word of a familiar name with a familiar project in a new  location reached the Coast News this week. A press release  from Yellowknife in the'North West Territories informs us  that the indefatigable Benny LePage is to ride a bike across  Canada to raise funds for a Teen Centre in Yellowknife.  . Benny's cross-Canada trip is scheduled to end in his  hometown of Gibsons on August 12.  RCMP warning  The Gibsons RCMP detachment has issued a warning to  local residents regarding non-local contractors who offer  services such as home repairs, roofing, etc.  1.

The name was  suggested by Mrs. Ada Dawe  and it is a name with long  historical roots in the Sechelt  area. '.���. ''"-:r        .'vv"'���'������. ���/- ;������.'  We can do. no. better than  quote the ;' letter from Mrs.  Dawe which embodied her suggestion.  "May I submit Shorncliffe  as a geographically apt,  dignified j and historically appropriate name for the Sechelt  Intermediate Care Society's  building presently under construction. My reasons for making this suggestion are as  follows:  1. Shorncliffe is apt because it  is the name of the great outcropping of rock upon which  the new home is sited. Thomas  John Cook was the first non-  Indian to own this property,  having pre-empted D.L. 1331  in 1891. He named the rock  thereon, Shorncliffe, approaching a century ago  because the appellation seemed  fitting to the local scertery and  geology. '���;'   *  2. Shorncliffe is also the'name  of the Sechelt avenue in front  of the new building. The route  runs behind the elementary  school toward the ������.Strait' of  Georgia on the south. On the  rock bluff at the eastern boundary of the intermediate care  land, Shorncliffe Avenue is still  a part of Sechelt's official  Parks and Trails Plan.  3. The Shorncliffe subdivision  of D.L. 1331 was created in  1909 for T.J. Cook. He chose  this name for his subdivision  because he spent his boyhood  in Kent, not far distant from  England's Shorncliffe. A portion of Plan 2156 made when  the property was surveyed,  shows a hand-lettered form of  Shorncliffe which might be appropriate for a letterhead.  Copy of a portion of the plan is  attached.  4. To honour Mr. Cook the  village of Sechelt after it was  incorporated, officially  adopted the name Shorncliffe  Avenue to denote the path or  road in front of the new intermediate care facility.  5. Shorncliffe is suitable for an  institution   offering   medical  care to Canadians. Enclosed is  an article from the Vancouver >  Province   under   date   of  February 15, 1915. It informs'  us that the Queen's Military  Hospital at Shorncliffe had just  received   four  Canadian  pa-  ��� tients wounded in the trenches.  Later.-ori, Shorncliffe became a  centre   for   Canadian   troops  during World War I;  6. Thomas John Cook became  Sechelt's    first    resident  magistrate when he was appointed a Justice of the Peace  in.1915. He continued to hold  this office until-he died on the "  Peninsula in 1960 at the age of  96. He was an amateur practical nurse and once helped,  deliver a baby in Sechelt, where  no professional medical personnel was available. He did  much generous volunteer work  for a then-unorganized community  and  he would  have  greatly appreciated the building  of the local intermediate care  home. You honour the early  pioneers of Sechelt should you  decide to use the name Shorncliffe."  The winning prize was split,  at Mrs. Dawe's suggestion,  with Mrs. Eva Killian who submitted the name Shorncliffe  Manor.  Obscene  calls  reported  Local RCMP and B.C. Tel  security officials are in*  vestigating a series of reports of  obscene telephone calls on the  Coast. The calls, received by  both men and women, began  around May 18 and increased  iri frequency on May 20 -21.  Local police recommend that  anyone receiving an obscene  telephone call should stay cal  m, not react to the caller in any  way and hang-up. If the calls  persist, call police or B.C. Tel.  Police officials also recommend that if a call is received,  the phone can be left off the  hook and a call to B.C. Tel can  be made who may be able to  trace the source of the call.  fc ���agge ��� ny*- iy ��� ^  Coast News, May 30,1983  It is a familiar truism that there has been an explosion  of change in this century and last week a couple of very  respected names indeed were making an important point  of what may be the paramount single fact about the  technological change we have experienced.  On CBC radio at the tail end of an interview, the  renowned journalist and thinker I.F. Stone was asked  for a comment about the current world situation. Stone  said simply that technology was now the greatest threat  to human life. He pointed out that with the new delivery  systems for nuclear weapons the time available to correct  error was now something under five minutes. This means  that we are relying on computers for our survival because  there simply isn't time for people in power,to weigh all  the factors and make decisions. He further pointed out  that computers have already alerted our defence systems  when they mistook a flight of geese in northern Canada  for enemy missiles.  The next night David Suzuki made the same essential  point in an article in the Vancouver Sun. We live constantly on the verge of the mass annihilation of mankind  bv mechanical accident and our leaders continue to  bluster about defence readiness as though they were talking about dreadnought battleships before the First World  War. ��'. '  The bald truth is that you should enjoy the spring  flowers. You might never have the opportunity again.  Win some  ���������  Perhaps the wisest decision the Sunshine Coast  regional district board has made in some time was the  decision last year to establish an economic commission  on the Coast.  Commission chairman Al Wagner must be congratulated for his patience, determination and positive  thinking in bringing the office into being; but it was the  board itself, despite considerable criticism from both  within and without, that is responsible for establishing  the commission.  The contributions to the Coast of the economic commission are documented on page one and we are sure  these represent only a beginning.  Without the commission, the employment opportunity  programme, which was brought to the board's attention  by MP Ray Skelly and MLA Don Lockstead, may never  have got off the ground. The existence of the commission  provided an ideal vehicle for taking advantage of the  NEED grants which have so-far brought almost  $1,000,000 into the community and provided 100 jobs.  We congratulate the commission on its first birthday,  for a remarkable job well done.  ...lose some  Wise decisions have not always been a trademark of  the regional board, however; and last week's bizarre vote  hot to hire the most qualified applicant for a summer  planning job has to be one of the worst.  There was never any question that the planner who was  to be hired was the most qualified/She was apparently so  keen on getting the experience of a planning job that she  worked for free for a%eek. r ?  Some board members felt, however, thatbeeause the  young lady has a close personal association with a director, it would appear to be hiring through personal influence if she got the job.  So what does it all mean when the board voted not to  hire the most qualified person? Can we expect then, that '  the directors will next vote to hire the least qualified?

A bucket brigade on a ladder to the  roof saved the telegraph office to the right. The 40-room hotel on  The Boulevard between Inlet-and Wharf Avenues was opened by  Bert Whitaker on July 1,1899. The Union Steamship Co. ran S.S.  "Cutch" on a special excursion trip to Sechelt for the occasion and  Whitaker provided an orchestra from Vancouver. He had sold the  hotel not long before it was destroyed, but he recovered his other  local properties within a year. The tide was ebbing when fire  erupted, so rescued equipment was carried to the beach, where a  horse and wagon picked up mattresses and furniture. The hotel kitchen range was set up on the Trail Bay beach and bread was baked  in its oven. Some of the people pictured were W,J. French /father-in-law of Alice French, a "Coast News" contributor who used the  pen-name Aries), Miss James (housekeeper), Edith Morgan (store  employee), Jack Wood (who has descendants in West .Sechelt) and  Constance Christison, who gave title to the land Upon which the  Sechelt kindergarten of today was originally built in 1920.

Musings  John Burnside  I found Jake resting; in the  afternoon! shade contemplating  his thriving garden. He was erir  joying a glass of his income-  parable rose petal wine and, as  if he knew I was coming, an extra glass stood waiting on the  lawn table beside him.  "Sit down," he.said and  poured me a glass of wine.  "Garden looks good," I  said.-- ������.,���������'  "She's coming along just  fine," said Jake. "Takes me,a  little longer how than it once  did but we get there/^ ^     |  There was; a pleasant pause  while we bbtruampled the wine  and watched the hummingbirds  dart by.  "Well, we both came up with  egg on bur face over the provincial election," said Jake.  "I guess so," said I.  "Another four years as part of  the loyal opposition."  Jake snorted. "Pm glad you  can take it so philosophically.  I'm willing to bet that there's  more than a few eyes get opened in the next four years. Just  you watch our Billy throw his  weight around."  "Don't blame me, I'm  NDP."  "Who else should be blamed," demanded Jake. "If ever  there was a government ripe  for the plucking it was the last  Socred government. Your party was not only a loyal opposition, it was practically mute."  "It was pretty low-key in opposition," I admitted.  "And ho screaming hell on  the campaign trail either,"  retorted Jake. "Barrett's like  other semi-socialist would-be  premiers I could name. Too  clever by half."  ' 'What do you mean,  Jake?"  "This whole damn nonsense  about playing it cool and letting the Socreds trip over their  own shoelaces. I've got no patience with that crap. If you  think that people are doing the  wrong thing get up off your  rear end and say so, that's my  philosophy."  "Well the Barrett supporters  make the point that the NDP  has never had more support in  this province than they do right  now."  ' 'Take what comfort you can  from that," said Jake. "For  my money your party missed  the boat and missed the boat  because it tried to tiptoe into  office without offending  anybody. Not only that, they "  committed the cardinal crime  in a democracy. They  underestimated the intelligence  of the voter. They don't  deserve to be the government."  "How,"   I  enquired,  wat  ching the bubbles rise as Jake  refilled my wine glass.  "They decided that the  average fellow wouldn't care  about the constitutional issue.  Here's a government signing  itself millions of dollars to  spend without legislative  authority so that it can win the  election without letting  anybody know how bad things  are and clever Dave and his  cohorts decide it isn't worth  talking about. Ridiculous!"  "Well, most people don't  care about such legal niceties in  times   of   real   economic  ���trouble," I objected! 'J    '"';':���!  . .> i '"That/SrV&i true in Gerrmihy  'in 1933,too," said Jake; -'And  you're going to tell me that the  comparison is far-fetched. But,  dammit, you either believe in  ' the democratic process or you  do not. Any party that flaunts  the  word   'democrat'   in  its  moniker should earn the right  . by defending democracy. Your  party didn't."  I decided the wisest course of  action was to let the matter  rest. What could I say? Jake  seemed content to let the  politics drift away on the  smoke of his pipe.  It was a glorious afternoon  in May, after all, and whatever  .our political leaders in their  wisdom or lack of it were doing  or planning to do there were  moments in Jake's garden to be  savoured. It was good to be  alive.  I was in elementary school in  the late 1940'sand early 'SO's.  A couple of times, in grade 3 or  4,1 remember we had "air raid  practice". All the kids were  told that in the event of an air  raid (nobody said who was going to attack us or why they  thought a bunch of 9 and 10  year   old   children   were   a  suitable target) we were to get  under  our  desks,   with  our  backs' to the windows, put our  heads between our knees and  cover the backs of our necks  with our hands. '���/���';'���'���  Our classroom was on the second floor of a wooden school  > house > thaty. was;^mlt^beTore  World War 1. In any kind of  nuclear attack, the whole place  would have been reduced to  slivers faster than the speed of  light. We weren't scared. Many  of us thought an air raid would  be a great adventure, especially  if it came in the middle of a  lesson on nouns and verbs.  Those were the days of the  first nuclear scare. I would venture to guess. that it had less  psychological' impact on us  than the first time we saw one  of our friends holding hands  with someone of the opposite  sex. I knew people who had air  raid shelters in their basements.  I wasn't scared.���  Last  week   though,   thirty  years later, while I was driving >  to work, I was overcome, for  the first time in my life, with a  sense of complete terror and  A Blessing  Just off the highway to Rochester, Minnesota,  Twilight bounds softly forth on the grass.

I sent  ��^um hews clippings of last  ^year's hbckey: games and  Various" Candian peace ac-  tj^tiyites.  j*1^ A recent letter I received  r~from him might be of interest  **to your readers.  ��xXxx- x\Xx Frank Fuller  ���IDear Frank;     ;yX X-X:-:X  ��Thanks a lot for the letter  �����and newspaper clippings. You  Cwrite about the hockey games  ^jri Canada, particularly about  "the meet with Kiev Sokii; It's  very nice to hear that our lads  were so popular with the Canadian fans. The leader of the  Ukrainian   team   visited   the A  Ukrania Society after they had  returned home arid told us:all;  about;the battles. He Stressed  jthat our hockey players'x had-  . Ibeen received quite warmly in ,  Canada. Personally, I strongly"  beUeve that it's best to fight in  hockey than in a real war, the  -more so that sports has always  ���implied  a  friendly,   even  if;  ^highly emotional, exchange of  ; skills on every side, and that  J any armed confrontation toil day, considering the kinds of  *v,weapons each side would put to  use, would mean the end of all  life on the planet. <  v  This year saw an extended  meeting of the Presidium of the  Peace Committee in Kiev and a  sitting of the Bureau of the City  ���Commission   for   the   Peace  Fund, as well as a meeting of  activists affiliated with the Kiev  Commission   for   the   Soviet   ���  Peace Fund. The participants  of the meeting said that practically every third citizen of the  country is a member of the  Soviet Peace Fund. Other such  massive   campaigns   are   the  Week of Actions for Security  and Co-operation in Europe,  Peace Week, a- Week of Ac-,  tions for the Nuclear Weapons  Ban, International Peace Day,  etc.'1':.:-'. XyxyXyyX] .       ���.:'.:.:'���;.  Watches of Commemoration  and Peace celebrating V-Day  which are held from the 9th of  April till the 9th of May have  become a very strong tradition  in our country. Workers from  the plants and factories take on  their staff the perished heroes  of the World War II and the  salary is transferred to the account of the Peace Fund. It has  also become tradition that the  money from the concerts of the  amateur and professional  ensembles of Kiev are used for  the noble cause of peace. A  Week of Actions for Disarmament and Campaign to collect  signatures under the Appeal to  the 37th General Assembly bf  the United Nations was successfully staged.  About 560 meetings were  held at enterprises in the  Ukraine's capital with about  112,000 people participating.  Eighty thousand Kievites signed the Appeal. Teachers of the  Nizhyn District, Cherkassy  Region, called upon their colleagues to work one day for the  benefit of the Peace Fund. This  call received a warm response.  As a result 53,000 roubles were  transferred to the account of  the Peace Fund.  I've read with great interest  about  the  interview  on  the  Canadian TV and about fhe  video record. Will it be shown  '.again? ,;-.> .;',--';  .    The members of the delegation for Shevchenko.Readings,  came back home arid told us a  lot of interesting things abbut^  their stay in Vancouver. Did  you have a chance to meet  them there? What do you think  of   the   meetings   with^   pur  delegation!   Were   they   1^>  teresting and useful?  I did not get the letter; from  the students. When it comes I'll  try to be helpful to the authors  of the letter.  Wishing you and yours the x  very best of health, happiness  and success. Write to me, OK?;  Best regards,77  Petio  Speech clinic -works  Editor, ''";;::  More than ten percent of all  children arid adults in Canada  have speech; language or hearing impairments which can  severely affect their ability to  function as human beings. The  ability to communicate is our  most'; human characteristic.  When a person cannot communicate, isolation from  friends, family and society  often occurs.  Speech-language pathologists arid audiologists are the  professionals who work with  individuals with speech,  language or hearing impairments. Awareness of  human , communication problems, and of the professional  services available for persons  with. these problems, is extremely important. There are  currently two speech-language  pathologists  working on  the  Sunshine Coast. Although the  majority of cases seen are  school-aged children, services  are also available to  preschoolers and adults..  adults.-7' ������������' ;i.-,���:..���':'.;������.-XXx  If you or a person you care  about suffers from a communication disorder or if you  are. interested in further information about speech, language  and hearing services, please  contact the Gibsons Speech  and Language Clinic  (886-9015), or the Sechelt  Speech and Language Clinic  (885-2617) between the hours  of 8:30 . and 4:30, Monday  through Friday.

Like them remember that    [���  prosperity can only be for  .the free  that freedom is the sure  possession of those alone  who have the courage to  ��� defend it.  Pericles  Malcolm Muggeridge, British  author, writing in 1936:  "If I believe that the soldier  who killed in defense of his and  my country, or the sailor  patrolling the coasts within  which I live, was performing a  shameful act, I should first  dispense with their protection  ���-that is renounce my nationality; then renounce the posses  sions they enable me to keep.  Only then should! be in a position to preach the abomination  of all warfare, and to pledge  myself never to take up arms.  It is hypocrisy for me to  dissociate myself from armaments which enforce  domestic order and prevent invasion, and so enable me,  within limits, to live my life in  my own way. In peace, my  citizenship brings me benefits;  in war responsibilities. I cannot  have one without the other.  R.T. Finlayson  Gower Pt. Road  Editor's Note: With all due  respect, neither Pericles nor  Muggeridge in 1936 knew  about computer-controlled  nuclear missiles.  IWHHrtlf?

"Ol' Sol" shone down on  Timber Days in Sechelt and  everyone, had a fine time,  tourists abounded in record  numbers. Perhaps the weather  made the difference but  Timber Days seemed to me to  be better than ever.  The organizers, Dorothy  Goeson and others, are to be -  congratulated, for as usual,  they did a fine job. I was pleased to learn that there will be a  return of Roberts Creek Daze.  This unique "Walton's Mountain" type of festival seems to  me to be just right for Roberts  Creek which is almost untouched by commercialism.  Every village, town, and city  around the world has its own,  unique festival which manages  to reflect that community."  Sechelt, with its Timber: Days,  manages to retain the flavour  of a seaside summer resort and  Roberts Greek manages to re-  Coast Naturalists  tain the flavour of lazy days in  the sun, sand, and sea.  With its natural harbour, the  sea, Gibsons' festival should  reflect its world-renowned setting. When CBC chose Gibsons  as the 'set' for the television  series "The Beachcombers",  who could have foreseen that  the spectacular scenery, as  much as the performance and  performers, would cause - the  series to become world-  famous?  Long before "The  Beachcombers", Gibsons had  a festival in July and the whole  village and its neighbours joined in and celebrated with them.  Over the years, the festival  grew and changed somewhat  but the flavour has remained  the same. CBC and ."The  Beachcombers" has been  located in Gibsons for over a  decade and the cast and crew  have become an integral part of  the celebration.  This year it was decided to  take    the    theme'   "The  Beachcombers" for its annual  festival and it is up to the individual   to   interpret   "the  beachcombers" as' one sees it.  It could refer to the television  series or to real beachcombers.  The dates', for Gibsons Sea  Cavalcade are July 29, 30 and  31 and are fast approaching.  Sponsors for this year's Sea  Cavalcade Queen contestants  are being sought and Jennifer  Dixon will, again, co-ordinate  this  event  with  the - capable  assistance of Marion Alsager.  -   "King   Neptune"   was   a  popular event two years 'ago  and in response we are also  looking out for candidates for  "Mr. Beachcomber" or "King  Neptune". It is not know at  this time if sponsors are needed  for these candidates.       v  -The next general meeting of  Gibsons Sea Cavalcade will be  .Tuesday, June 14 at my home  Ion Gower Point Road at Kelly.  Naturalists boost to Sechelt  by.Vince Bracewell  The mild winter and early  mini-spring followed by^a cold  rainy spell had an effect on the  spring migration of birds this  year.   The   appearance   of  various' species of birds was  very sporadic with small groups  showing up from time to time,  "staying for. a few days until >  they got a fair wind, then proceeding on their way.  It is close to the end of May  now and we have house finches  and   towhees   bringing   their  young to our feeding table. The  robins should be bringing their  babies to our yard to be fed any .  time   now.   The   western  tanagers   and   black   headed  grossbeaks call from the tops  of the high trees near our place  arid   the   western   fly-catcher  chirps  huskily  from  an old  Bead branch while an olive-  sided   fly-catcher   demands  .'.."three beers" from the top of  an old snag. * '.  7 Our resident  red breasted  nuthatch makes his daily bark  ^^heck oh our pine trees and the  warbling and  solitary vireos  sing from their cover in the  leaves of the alder trees.

Another   daughter,   Debbie,  who now lives in Australia also  made the trip home.  v Main reason for the family  -get-together was a reunion of  vthe   anniversary   of   Lanark  .Grammar School which was  -celebrating its 800th birthday.  No - that is not a typing error  '-the school was founded in the  year 1183.  r-v Needless to say, a great time  .was had By all apart from the  fact that it was a very cold  month of May over there. Also  "recently back from a trip to  Glasgow is Andrew Steele of  Brooks Cove. The purpose of  his visit was also an anniversary  - the 92nd birthday of this  mother who still lives in'the:  same house in which Andrew  was born.  .Visiting the Steele residence  at.the present time is Allison's  sister  Barbara  together  with  husband Frank Bunning from  " H&rpenden,   Herts.

They entered a  very fine float as well as looked  after the sports events. And, to  add to our laurels, a local gal  won a bread making contest.  This was Diana Gruner.  The group are at present  busy making preparations for  the Halfmoon Bay Country  Fair on Saturday, July 23 at  Connor Park. A call is being  sent out to any of our local  musicians who would care to  add some musical happiness to  that day.  FLEA MARKET REMINDER  There are still lots of tables  available for the Welcome  Beach Community Flea Market  on June 18. If you have no  handicraft items for sale you  could always collect a bunch of  white elephant items, rent, a  table for $6 and get rid of a lot  of stuff. Remember that one  man's junk is another man's  treasure.      '  Tea and refreshments will be  served out on the nice new deck  and it will be a good chance to  visit with your friends.  Talking of new looks;  Coopers Green has.a new, and  much improved look now that  the place has been renovated.  There is a nice new games room  which should attract the young  folks this summer, and  highways have done some work  improving the public roadway  to the launching ramp.  A special word of appreciation from yours truly goes out  to the Parents Association of,  Halfmoon Bay School. It-was  so nice to get your card expressing thanks for having promoted  the spring  fair.  This  kind of thing so seldom hap-'  |>ens that it gives one a special  little glow. You hear lots about  it if you misspell a name or say  something that displeases someone, so it's nice to get the  odd positive reaction.

After what has apparently  been several months of hard  ball negotiation, the Sechelt Indian Band has urged the Sunshine coast regional district  board to get on with coming to  an agreement over the proposed band sewage hook up.  Citing "legal overkill", as  threatening a final agreement,  the band, in a letter to the  board, read at last Thursday's  regular -board meeting, asked  the board to'instruct its lawyer  to meet with band solicitors  "to draft a new agreement with  terms and conditions we both  can accept".  The protracted negotiations  have failed to arrive at a  suitable conclusion to the Indian band's request to join the  regional sewage system.  Among the thorny issues are  the limits on the capacity  sought by the band, and the  need for an easement through'  band lands for a proposed outfall at White Islets.  The board accepted the  band's request to . resume  negotiations and will instruct  its lawyers to meet with band  negotiators.  Medical  update  St. Mary's Hospital has an  ongoing inservice education  program which serves to update staff skills as well as introduce new advances in the  health care system.

He was a skilled gardener  and   woodworker   and   a  community-minded man who  , put in many years in the service  of several organizations,  including  Boy  Scouts  (he led  troops in Wilson Creek and  Gibson's and served as District  ��� Council  president),   Demolay  (he was a master councillor at  age 20 and remained active for  15 years), Job's Daughters, the  Masonic Lodge, Kiwanis Club  and the Cedar Grove parents'  group. ; '    ,  Many of the approximately  300 people who crowded into  COAST  NEWS  CLASSIFIEDS  Madeira Park  until fioon Saturday  icNy Psoplo R.lqc  Devlin Funeral Chapel for his  funeral service May 17,  however, remember him best as  an expert fisherman with a lively sense of humour.  His youngest brother, Godfrey,   recalled   a   memorable  fishing outing to Gower Point.  Big waves were cresting on  the beach as the two men launched their geiar-laden dinghies.���''  John helped Godfrey push out  his boat, then shoved off just :  as Godfrey was about to tow  him out.  One of the waves  swamped John's boat, which  sank in a-fooj of water.  "He-'just sat there, partly  under water, as the fishing gear  floated away," Godfrey said.  "From a distance it looked as if  he was sitting in the water  without a boat. I thought it was  the funniest-thing I had ever  seen.'*'  Oh another occasion, the July 1st salmon derby in 1966,  ���brothers Winston, John and  Godfrey Robinson won three  bf the five prizes .Unfortunately, John had started to clean his  26 lb. 5 oz. second-place win-  CONVERT  your existing  WOODEN  -r&.;: y  ALUMINUM  WINDOWS  to     ���::.'..-  DOUBLE GLAZED  OPEN:  , Mon. - Fri. 8 am - 4:30 pm  Saturday    8:30 am -12:30 pm  Llt'LLl  Hwy. 101 & Pratt Rd., Gibsons  ner when one of the local  newspapers asked him to pose  for a picture. Not only did the  photo show a salmon without a  head or tail, but the caption  writer identified John as  Winston and vice versa.  His love of practical jokes  drew a clever response from  Mel Hough about 17 years ago.  ��� Hearing'; that the Robinsons  needed potatoes, Hough visited  their partially-completed house  on the^ highway during their  absence and nailed the contents  of a sackful of spuds to the  studs of the framed-in living  room.   ���  Born in  Stoughton,  Sask.  September   30,   1936,   John.  Robinson settled in Gibsons  with his parents and brothers  when he was eight years old.-..  After high school he worked at'  Smitty's   Marina,   the   Port  Mellon pulp mill, Sunnycrest  Esso and Canadian Propane  before stints in Port McNeil,  Squamish and Powell River,  where he was involved in propane arid service station enterprises. Upon returning to Gibsons,   he   set   up   his   own  backhoe contracting business.  He married Arlene Macleod  of Wilson Creek, on May 11,"  1963 (those who were present''  will remember diai?the best      !i  man fainted) and was privileged to share a 20th wedding anniversary with Arlene the day  before he died. He is lovingly  remembered by his children,  Debbie, John and Nancy, and  many relatives and friends.

Being   a  member of the volunteer fire  department, I can tell that it  makes my skin crawl to hear  odd directions to a house that I  don't personally know while  I'm on route to a fire and all I  want to do is put it out. Instead  I might have to figure out just  which old Reid's house it is and  of course they used to live there  but don't anymore so now we  have the "same house talked  about urider two family names.  . Well, /we do alright but soms  sort   of   system   to   identify  houses or blocks would be a  definite asset to emergency services. Maybe this does not  mean spending a large amount  . of money, maybe it does, but it  should be talked about as I'm  sure it wijl be this week! I'm  last for more government  regulations being rammed  down our throats, but I'm first  for health and safety.  ODDS'N ENDS  I am not a TV nutcase but  just the other day I found out  how incredibly inexpensive it is  to rent a machine (and free  movie) at Harbour Video.  Phone after noon (they're nigh  owls!) and check it out, even  on Sundays!   .  You'll notice this week two  pages' of coupons in the paper.

Life, he said, was  becoming a little tense, so we crossed our fingers and  purchased a barbecue. (And, yes, Dave, we did find a  middle priced one!) Life has become quite Jolly once  more as we play at North American Happy Families and  spend sunny evenings barb-b-q-ing on our deck!  The first time we played I realized several new  reasons behind the skyrocketing divorce rate and also  why so many North Americans eat out���and 1 don't  mean out in their own back yards either! We sat there,  stupified, in front of our new toy, saliva dripping from  the corners of our mouths, as we watched a dead bird  turn round arid round and round. It remained pale  white for the longest conceivable time, refusing even a  suggestion of a singe. We ate our potato salad, then  our green salad. A little later on we ate our strawberries as well, and then we all stared at the bird again.  Perhaps St was just a little browner? Eventually it surprised us by being edible. "Hey," said the small one,  "you should put this in the paper. It's pretty tasty!"

Brush on chicken,  ribs, etc. v  We now think we have the toy perfected, they bring  out plates, etc. from the kitchen; he hovers over the  barbecue; I lie in the hammock. We brought that out to  convince ourselves that we do indeed live in lotus  land. I asked him if he'd like an apron to wear with the  toy but he muttered obscenities about people who  wear inane writing all'over them so I guess I'd just better lie back and soak up the sun!

Those Shopping Carts ,  Once again I find it necessary to appeal to the public  to assist us in preventing the overnight destruction of  our-shopping carts. When they are left outdoors, on, or  near the street, on the ramp, or on the?wharf, night,  time vandals, (fun-loving adolescents) either ride  around in, and wreck our carts, or throw them over- .  board into the ocean.  Last-year we found It necessary to buy 25 carts to  replace lost and broken ones, at a cost of almost  $2,000. It seems that in one year, we are back to the  point where we need another 25 carts. A considerable,  . number have been retrieved as wrecks out of the  ocean and some are still there!  When people use OUR carts to wheel their groceries  home, they are, in effect, removing from our premises  an asset which we cannot use until It is returned.  Many people who walk to shop, have purchased  their own grocery carts at a cost far less than a commercial grocery cart.  i'���.   ������'������'��������� ��� .-��� ���  Many people have also been most kind and concerned, and have -phoned when they saw a stray cart in .  some blind alley.  We frequently drive for blocks  around town to locate and return our carts. This Is an  extra cost and should not be necessary.  Henceforth, we must insist that NO carts be removed  from our premises without permission, and on permission, If granted, said carts are to be returned promptly.  Shop with confidence.  Our prices are very competitive.  We will not be undersold  on these advertised items.  We fully guarantee everything we sell  to be satisfactory  or money cheerfully refunded.  Jell'O - Ass't'd.

',  I had been concerned that he  might overpower the students'  and that they might have trou-,  ble getting a word in edgewise,  but I needn't have worried.  The interview with Clint and  Vicki was relaxed and easy,  with McGeer chuckling as Clint  tripped over the introduction,,  putting the students at ease by'  remarking, "Don't worry, Bill  Bennett . can't   get   it   right  either!" Watching him for the  first time not playing the politician, but as an ordinary human  being I realized a couple of  things we tend to forget. First,  that students have a way of bringing out the best in people  and  secondly that they had.  . created a non-threatening at- <  mosphere  in  which  McGeer  was free to be himself. He talked happily about his ideas arid ,  points of view without any fed- <���  ing of having to justify himself  in a political arena and he came  across as human rather than  the usual talking machine.

Peace  group  by Maryanne West  Recently I had the privilege  of going to Vancouver with,  four of the communications 12  students from Elphinstone.  The raison d'etre was an interview with Dr. Pat McGeer,  minister of science, universities  and communications. The  students, Vicki Hawken, Darin  Macey, Clint Mahlman and  Carrie Sasaratt were eminently  capable of handling the interview and the technical work, so  their teacher, Marta macKown,  had no need to accompany  them.  This opportunity for the  Elphinstone students was arranged by the Suncoast Television Society and made possible  by the. co-operation of the  Knowledge Network which  loaned its studio and lighting  facilities, and by John Thomas  of Coast Cablevision who provided transportation and took  us afterwards to a programmers' workshop for community programmers who work for  lower mainland cable companies.  John met us, at Horseshoe  Bay at 7:30 a.m. and drove us  out   to   UBC   where   the  Knowledge Network has  studios in the basement of the  Woodward Library complex.  We were received with great  friendliness by Dave Dillman  and later by Glen Mitchell and  other KNOW, staff. While  Clint and Darin helped the  lighting staff set up, the rest of  us were given a tour of the  KNOW faculty and the  students were given the opportunity to talk freely with and  question the staff about the  equipment, about jobs and opportunities in the field���a  valuable experience.  Because of the difficulties in  transporting equipment the  students had only brought one  camera which to some degree  limited their flexibility and  freedom to movement, so they  used the time while waiting for  McGeer to tape the questions  to be asked which can be edited  into the film at the appropriate  spot. Difficulties of this sort  always provide valuable experience in finding' ways  around them!  I'm no great admirer of Dr.  McGeer.

Daylirjht Saving Time T      .ADD  1  HOUR:  The proposal to spend  $5,000 to build a public boat  launch ramp at the bottom of  Mason Road in West Sechelt  has; become entangled in the  legal necessity of acquiring a  foreshore lease from the provincial government.  WHen the original proposal  was passed by the regional  board in early May, it was done  in the belief that the project  would have to proceed rapidly  in order to realize the substantial cost savings promised.  So far no work has been  done but area B (West Sechelt-  Halfmoon Bay) director Pat  Murphy told the board that a  foreshore lease has been applied for and that the lease  must be obtained before any  money is spent on the project.  Murphy was responding to  comments by area A (Pender-  Egmont) director Ian  Vaughan, who questioned the  short notice given on deciding  to spend the $5,000. "How can  we come up with $5,000 all of a  sudden?" asked Vaughan.

V  What opportunities are there  on the Sunshine Coast for the  3MX enthusiast to indulge his  passioniforpedalrbike racing?  A practice track is already in  operation in Sechelt and will  shortly be sanctioned as a race  track. In Gibsons work will  begin soon on construction of a  track which will be ready for  racing in July.  Gordon Clayton in Sechelt  has been responsible for  organizing the construction of  a track on the vacant lot next to  Shop Easy in the centre of  Sechelt.  Gordon praised the  volunteers who assisted him for  their "fantastic help, 1 had  more co-operation than I could  have dreamed possible".  The track is in use only for  practices at present as  organization of races is in the  formative stages. However,  aspiring racers can practice  whenever they like as the track  is open at all times.  Gordon is appealing for  donations of used tires which  can be dumped at the track  next to the shopping mall.  In Gibsons, Mrs. Allanson  and Mrs. Henderson, the initiators of plans for .a track on  property   donated   by   Mrs.  Henderson on North Road, are  waiting  for their application  , for a NEED grant to be approved. If the grant i? approved  than a.sophisticated and  challenging   track   with   all  facilities will' beconstructed.  Even  without  the grant  the  track will go ahead as "we've  been offered wonderful help  locally," said Mrs. Henderson,  "many people have offered to  assist us in putting in the track.  We will be open for sanctioned  racing  in  July,  whether  the  grant goes through or not."  ��� So by summertime you will  be   able   to   see   endos   and  tabletops being executed and  you   will   understand   why  mounds of dirt are essential for  BMX racing.

As the days grow longer and  warmer you'l! notice the bugs  and other pests increasing in  numbers, and there always  seem to be little creatures lurking in the soil, ready to attack  your vegetables or gobble up  seedlings as fast as you . can:  plant them  Of course, there are  numerous chemical answers to  these problems, but I prefer to  try more; prgamc methods,  believing ���thafc'wej already use  more than .v enough chemical  substances in our lives; There is  never a season when some of  my vegetables and flowers are  not lost to garden pests, but  there is always plenty left for;  me. There aire many methods  used in the days before  chemical sprays and dusting  powders. These include compa-  Billie Steele is pictured amidst the kinnikinick plants whichJtave  given their name to Sechelt's new park. Story below, -Fran Berger photo  Steele names Sechelt's park  by Fran Berger  The new park being con-,  structed by the Village of  Sechelt on DL 1472 will  henceforth bear the name  "Kinnikinnick".  Judges in the "Name the  Park" contest made their selection known to the Parks Committee on May 17, but all were  sworn to secrecy until the official announcement during  Timber Days.  Judges Helen Dawe, Dennis  Shuttleworth and Les Brown  had the; formidable task of  selecting a name from among  32 entries, and finally chose the  submission of Mrs. Billie Steele  of Sechelt.  Mrs. Steele was awarded a  prize of $25, which she subsequently donated to the Sechelt  Marsh Protection Society. v->"1��  "Kinnikinnick" is the name  of a low, evergreen, spreading.  shrub which forms large mats  in dry, sandy and rocky areas.-  It bears small white or pinkish  flowers which become bright  red berries, rather mealy and  tasteless when raw but quite,  palatable when cooked. It is  very common and widespread  in British Columbia, and is also  known by the name of "Bear-  berry" , due to its popularity  with   certain   large,   brown  animals.   ' -     '  ."Kinnikinnick"   is   an  Eastern Indian word meaning  '[''mixture". .Leaves of this  plant were often mixed with  tobacco, barks and other leaves  to form a smoking mixture, used by the early fur tradersi fit  was they who brought -"the'  name to thecoast. Gradually  the name was applied to; the  plant used, rather than the injx-  ��� lure itself.   y;  7 X:X;fyXx  Now the name will add la  mixture   of   charm v arid  character to an area which the  Village of Sechelt has set aside  , and preserved for the -, enjoyment of its citizens. ���        ��� :    ���.  nion   planting,   encouraging  birds  who   prey  on   various  pests,   making   sprays   from  plants   which   discourage   insects, and good garden habits.  It has been shown in tests  that   marigolds,   the   French  variety, are quite effective in  combating  nematodes.   Plant  the   infected   area   with   the  marigolds and leave for a year.  It is said that nematodes starve  to death if there is no host  plant, and marigolds are not a  host.  Some people say that  planting   three   or    four  marigolds around each plant, a  tomato.for example, will repell  these pests. Cabbage butterflies  are repelled by rosemary, sage,  peppermint   and   tomatoes.  Nasturtiums   planted   around  and throughout the garden will  help reduce the damage done  by aphids who are attracted to  the nasturtiums and leave the  other plants. It has also been  discovered that nematodes are  repelled by a chemical present  in the asparagus plant. This  research :���:��� was   done�� at   the  University of Maryland, and  the juice was found to kill all  types 'of nematodes found in  Maryland. Keep your cooked  asparagus   water   for   your  tomato plants.  Tansy, an easy herb to grow,  is an effective ant-repellent;  anise and coriander both contain an oil effective against  spider mites and cotton aphids;  mint leaves and also leaves of  pumpkin and squash, are good  against flies. Crush them and,  hang in kennels, or any place  where flies congregate. Old  garden lore says that a row or  two of cosmos, coreopsis and  asters planted between the  vegetable rows will drive away  insects. It's worth the try; even  if you still have a bit of a problem, your garden will be very,  pretty.  One of the most effective  ways of cutting down on  damage is by building up your  soil; healthy, well-fed soil  seems to keep the pests away. It  may be that such soil grows  healthy vegetables which are  better able to handle the  marauding insects.  Many varieties of plants  available today are disease-and  pest-resistant; the annual seed  catalogues usually list such attributes. ,  It is good management to  rotate your crops each year;  keep the weeds down, and keep  the garden area clean. Make"  sure you collect all the compost  heap material and put it in the  compost   area;   diseases   and  bugs thrive in piles of dead  plant stalks and such. Another  valuable  way  of : eliminating  certain pests*  such as caterpillars   and   slugs;   is   hand-  picking. It sounds like a lot of  work, but it takes only a few  minutes in the evening and is  worth the trouble. This time  also gives  you a chance to  observe your garden and the  condition pf all your plants,  pucks and geese are great slug-  eaters, but they also eat seedlings, trample the garden, and  leave   quite   a   bit   of mess  behind. If you have a fenced  garden and don't mind them  roaming around, you'll notice  a definite decrease in the slug  population.  Next week I'll talk about the  individual insects and diseases^  how to watch for them ancf.  what to do if you find thenfc  I'll also talk about the differerf|  ways of attracting birds to/  help.

The Achievement Centre was  founded for this purpose.  Today, the Achievement  Centre, situated on Industrial  Way in Gibsons, is a workshop  where crafts of all types are  beautifully created, knitted,  and crocheted. Wood work of  craftsman quality is produced  in the form of cradles, planters  of varying sizes and shapes,  bookcases and orders for  school music stands have been  filled.  The workers at the centre  have also been .repairing and  refinishing furniture. In their  desperate need to live in a productive way in the community,  the workers have drawn up a  contract with B.C. Tel to be  responsible for washing the  company trucks. Have you  seen a clean B.C. Tel truck?  You know who's been keeping  it tlja^way. , ,  vPaihting, gardening and  "yard cleanup are also ways in  which the workers feel they can  lead productive and giving lives  in their community.  Future plans for the centre  will hopefully include an expansion to the existing  building, and a monthly  newsletter.   The  Achievement  Centre gives the handicapped  person an opportunity to learn  and practice life skills as well as  trade skills.  Every Wednesday, a special  luncheon is decided upon,  shopped and cooked for by the  workers with help from the  craft supervisor, Ginny Derby.  Each Tuesday and Thursday  afternoon the workers go  swimming at the Aquatic Centre in the handicapped swim  session.  Building confidence and independence are priceless byproducts of this valuable  workshop. In the words of the  centre's supervisor, Rob  Brotherton, "these are honest  hardworking people willing to  help the community if given a  chance". ��  Recently, Rob Brotherton,  an experienced supervisor^ of  handicapped workshops, ��jias  been hired as the supervisor of  the Achievement Centre. F^pb,  who has expressed concern  about continued fundingl*for  the centre, has planned a variety of projects to give the centre  a "higher profile" in the Community. One such job he hppes  his workers can take on $s a  clean up of the SeaVSew  Cemetery. ���  *t      '  To place orders, or for^ny  other information, please contact the Achievement Centre at  886-8004. >���  Unemployed action group  plans film showings  The Sunshine Coast Labour  Council and the Unemployment Action Centre are offering a film and discussion series  on the history, cause and effect  of unemployment in Canada.  The films will be shown at St.  Bartholemew's Church Hall,  the corner of North Road and  Highway 101 in Gibsons,  beginning Tuesday, May 31 at  8 p.m.  Frank Fuller, a retired  Elphinstone teacher, will show  the first film, titled "Friend or  Foe", and lead the discussion.  On Tuesday, June 7 at 8 p.m.,  the film shown will be "Twenty  Cents a Day".

'->  Each of these films depidte a  segment of the history;>of  unemployment and the Struggle  of working people and :the  labour movement in Canada.  Discussions will focus on comparisons of the situations  shown in the films and the existing unemployment problems  of today. Xj  The public is invited'���''to  watch the films and take an active part in the discussions: ilf  unemployment has affected  you in any way, please cdrjie  out on Tuesday evenings ajitd  join us. 'r:  Boat safety week  Corporal Mike Ferguson, in  charge of the RCMP boat on  the Sunshine Coast advised  boaters that June 5 - 11 is  boating and water safety week.  Of particular concern to  Ferguson is the use of alcohol  by boaters, which renders them  ten times more suseptible to the  effects of hypothermia.  Corporal Ferguson told the  Coast News that recently  boaters have been showing  responsibility in avoiding the  over use of alcohol on their  boats, hut the tragic experience  at Ruby Lake last year when  four young' people lost their  lives, is a constant reminder  that alcohol and boating don't  mix.  Corporal Ferguson also said  that the RCMP will be on the  look out for non-use of life  jackets on pleasure craft and  will be checking for fishing  licences.  Life jackets are particularly  important as tests have shown  that victims thrown into the  water   without   floatation  devices must tread water "Ap  avoid drowning, which results  in a 34 per cent faster loss/4>f  body heat than a victim whote-  mains still with a life jacket.  Land sought  The Gibsons and District  Chamber of Commerce wilPal-  tempt to secure land in 4$&  lower Gibsons area for a rigiy  site for its tourist information  booth. The chamber, at *ifc  May meeting at the Omejpja  Restaurant voted unanimously  to seek the property. "^  The proposal arose from^a  general discussion of the laejc  of tourist information facilities  on the lower end of the Sur��  shine coast. Among the prc��  posals for improving the situ����  tion were plans to seek a Sun}  shine coast tourist information  billboard at the ferry terming  in Horseshoe Bay and a neTw  tourist direction sign at the etffy  of the Langdale terminal.    >'  >'��� Coast News, May 30,1983  1.

An appeal has been submitted against the ministry's  calculation formula, pointing  out that it is unfair to growing  school districts like ours and  offering revised calculations  under a different approach,  which if acceded to would increase the budget by $119,486.  However Secretary-Treasurer  Mills thinks it highly unlikely  'that the ministry will be per-  ��� siiaded, since it will require the  recalculation of all school  district budgets. It may be a  ��� help in an individual appeal for  an approved budget overrun,  for which the first step is to ask .  the   ministry   to   conduct   a  "budget review.  / This would seem the only.  Way to get extra funding, and  meetings with staff to discuss  : where cuts can be made will  have to be arranged.  ; All   concerned   about   the  quality of education in  this  district are urged to attend this  meeting.  Centennial  group to pay  : Gibson's Centennial Committee failed to get school  board approval for the free use  of Elphinstone facilities for the  Pylay 28 telethon. Speaking to  his motion to deny the request  Trustee Hodgins, chairman of  the policy committee said,'' We  should follow policy and not  make any exceptions at this  time until we have clearly  established in which direction  we want to go".  All trustees were in agreement that making exceptions  only creates more problems  and generates hard feelings.  Regional  decision  surprising  In what must surely be one  of the most unorthodox decisions ever made by the directors of the Sunshine Coast  regional district, the board  voted Thursday against a Service Committee recommendation, "That the best qualified  person be hired for the summer  internship planning postion."  The summer internship position has been .in use by the  board for some time. It allows  the planning department to  seek provincial grant money to  hire a student planner to help  board planners work on the  long awaited community plans.  ���; This year, a masters programme student in community  planning was recommended for  hiring as she was felt to be by  far. the most qualified of the  applicants.  /However, several board  members opposed the hiring  because the student has what  w��s described as "a special  relationship" to one of the  directors. Implying that hiring  the student would constitute a  form of nepotism, all of the  directors who voted, except  directors McGillivray and  Gurney, subsequently voted  against hiring the student.  We are all tired of the gloom  and doom, tired of having two  million Canadians unemployed'  and countless numbers?; on  welfare, tired of seeing ifarin income go down, tired of a trend  that has seen our standard of  living drop from second in the  world to 19th. I'm tired of that  misery but I'm convinced we  can have a better future!  We know that by working  together, by co-operating and  sharing, we can and will rebuild  this country. Other countries  with fewer resources are doing  better. Why? Because they plan  and have national goals and  objectives. A major difference :  between them and us is they  own  and control their own  wmm  economies. We do hot.  We have the highest degree  of foreign ownership of any  developed country. Fully 26 per  cent of our economy is foreign-  owned compared to less than  three per cent in Britain,  France and the United States  and less than one per cent in  Japan.  Foreign control has made us.  poorer and cost us jobs. It has  made us poorer because  billions of dollars flow out of  Canada yearly in profits and  dividends to foreign  shareholders. Profits made by  the hard work of Canadians.  We pay because 80 per cent of  the money foreigners invest in  Canada is Canadian money.  We are being bought with our  own money.  38=55-  We lose jobs because foreign  branch plants operating here in  /Canada import four times as  much as Canadian firms. ,We  lose jobs because many  foreign-owned branch plants in  Canada have severe restrictions  on how many goods produced  here they can export.  ��� We lose jobs because most  foreign-owned companies do  not do research and development in Canada. The result is  less innovation and a loss of  opportunities for our young  people in fields of the future,  like science, technology and  computers. ;  Ironically, despite all this the  government and the Conservatives say that the Foreign In  vestment Review Agency is too-  strong.   In  fact,  FIRA is/a-  . toothless watchdog. It reviews'  less than 10 per cent of all'  foreign expansion.   ;        ;  We are emerging into a new  ': world���the:-world of the computer      and"   /advanced  technology.   Is   this   to/ be  another case of letting others  . do what we could do ourselves?  We can develop our own advanced technology and tailor it  to   our   needs   and   indeed,  become an exporter and. world  leader in this area:  We must determine our own  destiny. We can no . longer  allow foreign corporations to  dictate our / future. Our  pioneers founded tliis country.  We work in it, it is burs and we  are going to keep it.
