"    Mrs. McCarthy brought with,  her   'a   commitment'   for  $400,000 in provincial lottery:  " funds as the province's share in  the cost of the Gibsons Marina.  Federal money for the pro-  ' ject had already been promised  .but was shelved when the pro-  \ vince could not come up with  ,- its share. Representatives of the  * village, have already contacted  ��� federal representatives in Vancouver in connection^with the  ; federal funds and are most op-  jtimistic   about   getting   them,  ^because of the high priority  previously granted the Gibsons  Marina and because the recent  federal budget seemed to look  favourably on small harbour  development.  The Deputy Premier during  her .visit paid tribute to 'the  lovely reception and the tour of  the community' which she.had  enjoyed. She arrived by float  plane in the harbour.  '/The services provided in  B.C. for people are the finest in  the world," said Mrs. McCarthy. "Today, my department,  the department of human  resources will spend $2 Vi  million of your money and the  department of health will spend  $6 million. We need to develop  the infrastructure to support  these costs." '���;������  In accepting the provincial  commitment, Mayor Lorraine  Goddard said: '-The marina is  not only a long-term dream but  we regard it as a catalyst that  will provide a. much-needed  stimulus for our local  economy."  The commitment came in the  form of a letter over the  signature of James R. Chabot,-  the Provincial Secretary;  Spokesman for the village  told the Coast News that the  marina project could go forward without delay and-  without cost to the Gibsons  taxpayers. : -  "I want the marina very badly,"   said   Mayor   Goddard,  "but not at the expense of the  local taxpayer;"  Present at the ceremonial  handing over of the provincial  commitment were many who:  had worked on the marina;  committee, notably former  alderman Larry Trainor who  had worked On the project for  four years.  400 locals take part  Deputy Premier Grace McCarthy arrives at jGibsons municipal hall last Friday with some gpod news*  ,'���'.���' ..'��� ���.'���'���������JohnIlBratidephoto  See adjoining story.  On Channel 10  The first all-candidates  meeting of the current provincial election in the Mackenzie  riding took place in Gibsons  last week arid was televised for  viewing on Channel Ten.  NDP MLA Don Lockstead,  Socred challenger Jim Price,  arid Liberal George Shaw were  interviewed in the Channel Ten  studio at Elphinstone Secondary School by Anne Langdon  and John Burnside of local  newspapers. Vice-Principal  Dave Stigant moderated the  discussion.  The candidates were allowed  a five-minute statement at the  beginning of the one and a half  hour telecast and then responded to questions from the interviewers.  All stressed the need to  create jobs as the priority issue  in the campaign in this riding.  Lockstead repeated his party's  pledge to borrow $500 million  against profits of the B.C.  Petroleum Corporation for job  creation, estimating that 14,000  jobs could be so created. He  also called for the creation of a  Small Business Council to  represent the interests of the  small business operator,  recognizing the key role played  by local business in the creation  of local jobs;  The MLA also called for the  re-establishment of "the reforestation fund which he said  had been, removed to help  cover the provincial government's deficit.  "We have a .backlog of 24  million acres of unplanted  acres and we are still cutting  trees faster, than we are planting them," said Lockstead.  Socred candidate Jim Price  also called for job creation.  "I believe that the Socred  team we have now is better able  to create jobs than anyone  else," said Price.  Price called for long-range  planning on job creation and  expressed himself as optimistic  about the future.  "50% of the B.C. coastline is  in this riding and our future is  tied to the ocean and the  forests," said Price.  Price pointed to the  mariculture industry as providing future 'free enterprise'  jobs and took note of the successes enjoyed in this area by  the Japanese.  Tourism was another area in  which Price saw the development of future jobs and urged  that better utilization of  available facilities could be  achieved in the winter months,  pointing to the success of his  Beach Gardens Resort in  Powell River in becoming 'the  scuba-diving capital of  Canada.'  Liberal George Shaw, a  school trustee in Powell River,  agreed that unemployment was  the single greatest issue but said  that it was the issue of education which had brought him into the electoral race.  "The education issue is so  important for our future," said  Shaw, "but'for the past twelve  months the present Socred  government has conducted its  affairs without due regard for  integrity and honesty."  The Liberal candidate slammed the politics of confrontation which he said prevailed in  this province.  "Past government have not  brought together the talents of  business and labour," said  Shaw. "There is an inseparable  union between business and  labour and confrontation between them serves only to  weaken society."  "If elected I would be a  Liberal MLA and it might prove advantageous with Ottawa  to have a Liveral representative  in this riding." _  The televised all-candidates  meeting will be seen this week  on Channel Ten in Gibsons,  Sechelt and Pender Harbour.

Crow d  'estimates ranged frdrri 80;000  1 announced by the police at the  rally to 120,000 estimated by  RCMP flying in helicopters  overhead. The fact that really  struck home, however, was the  broad social spectrum  represented by the participants.  Walking in a crowd of tens of  thousands, you only get to see  the couple of hundred in your  ownpart of the mass. I suppose  the people in the helicopters  hovering overhead could seethe enormity of it. Or those  who chose to cheer from the  sidelines might be awed by the  seemingly endless stream that  saw the head of the march  entering Sunset Beach Park  while its tail, three kilometres  '$#.  astern, was just leaving the  staging area.  ;  f But right there in the middle  of it, you get to see the people,  the faces, the sometimes  ^outlaj^lisiis  cfifidrefr  cheerleaders, the little old men,  the little old iadies--every conceivable social ariclj economic  class in Canada^  Even the policemen mbnitor-  tla:ntiish^^^  iaren?thtc^  ^.^_iL it- -iii ^1,1 _m, and as the RCMP helicopter  flew overhead a wave of  greeting and encouragement  flashed from the pilot's window.  The Sunshine Coast was well  represented by individuals and'  groups; estimates of the;  number of local residents in atr  tendance ranged from 200 to  400.  The final,, and lasting impression of the day was one of  confidence   that   people  everywhere and of every kind:  are fed up with sharing their;  planet with nuclear weapons  and for two or three hours,:  once a year, are willing to  forget petty bickering and:  political disagreement to find a  common bond with their  neighbours.  the funny; the rich, the  every kind of person you could  imagine. The immediate and  lasting impression is that this  thing���this peace thing���is  perhaps the biggest social  enterprise of the second half of  our century. It's beyond  politics, beyond any kind of  partisanship.  There were mothers for  peace, grandfathers for peace,  punks for peace���"nukes are  for pukes;"���there were  stockbrokers for peace,  socialites for peace, doctors,  lawyers, teachers, transsexuals, bi-sexuals, even an  organized sign-carrying group  called "Interior Decorators for  Peace".

First, Price was pressed to respond to the observation  made by Don Lockstead that it appeared to him that  government aid was being dispensed on a partisan basis,  that is according to party stripe.  "That is a silly accusation," said Price, "these days  when people are so well informed about government they  couldn't get away with that sort of thing."  Is it not true that a common Socred argument is that  with a government MLA Mackenzie would get better  treatment? Indeed isn't the home riding of the minister of  highways, now the blacktop capital of B.C.?  Even the squeaky-clean Liberal candidate held out  hopes of better treatment from Ottawa if we elect a  Liberal MLA.  The fact of the matter is, and surely Mr. Price knows  this, the system of patronage in this country has been  brought to a fine art by the Liberals federally and  nowhere is it practised more assiduously than by the provincial Socreds.  So long-standing have been these practices that the  Canadian voter believes it to be normal, not corruption,  for the party in power to provide its friends with financial  reward.  To pretend that it is 'silly' to say that such things happen is a patent absurdity that Price would have been better to leave unuttered.  Nuclear-free zone  The enormity of the support for Saturday's peace  demonstration was so overwhelming that it will take time  for its full impact to be appreciated. Never, in the history  of this country have so many people gathered in one place  to issue such a unanimous message.  While the full implications of the peace walk are still  sinking in, there is one political decision that ought to be  made by our local municipal governments. As soon as  possible, we would urge both municipalities and the  regional board to take the joint decision declaring the  Sunshine Coast a nuclear free zone.  A symbolic gesture perhaps���but a clear message that  the politicians can still follow the leadership of the people.  Corporation welcomed  We welcome the efforts of the Economic Commission's Tourism Committee in seeking public support for  the proposed Community Development Corporation.  This investment corporation incorporates the strengths  of the public and private sectors in a positive spirit of  co-operation.  Left to their own devices, neither the public nor  private sectors have proven capable of bringing planned, thoughtful development to the Sunshine Coast.  Working together, through an organization responsible  to the citizens of the Coast, this proposed investment  group has the potential to benefit the whole community.  ...from the files of the COAST NEWS  5 YEARS AGO  The closure of the  fishing of herring in  Pender Harbour has been  partially lifted.

The words were inscribed by Sarah Belle Cook, the writer's  grandmother, who died in Sechelt in 1918. The horses were the property of Herbert Whitaker, who also  owned the land where Nellie & Joey grazed. They fed on the lagoon grasses, which were once a natural  portion of the Sechelt Marsh on Us western side near the present Government Wharf. In subsequent  years private interests dumped stumps, mill ends, sawdust, etc. into a considerable portion of the Marsh.  A later developer dredged up sand out of Porpoise Bay to cover this refuse and render the area suitable  for commercial purposes. When a further entrepreneur wanted to build houses on the former Marsh  lands it became necessary to dig out a portion of the accumulated rubbish and replace it with rock fill,  etc. L. Harry Roberts, of the family for whom Roberts Creek is named, purchased Nellie from Whitaker  after the latter acquired a team. Harry had a contract to supply Whitaker with cord wood for S.S.

Lalorideiast week was the ac-$  ceptance of 'double: digits-  unemployment for the next  several years.  Much has been said and written about the high cost of  unemployment and generally ;  what is meant is that those who  had been taxpayers and contributors to society's coffers  were now recipients of  unemployment insurance and  welfare and a drain on the  public purse.  There is another kind of cost  that may, given the protracted  period in which high levels of  unemployment pertain, be of  greater consequence than the  nerely financial.  The provincial Liberal candidate for Mackenzie riding in  :he upcoming election was in  town last week to participate in  a televised press conference.  Himself a contractor who has  been none too active in the past  12 months, he spoke of the lack  of self-esteem and of goals  which the unemployed experience and it may be that it is  the unmeasured misery of the  unemployed which will be the  greatest cost to society.  In 1981 I was visiting in the  south-western part of  Scotland. The unemployment  figures were soaring there,  . :hough the effects of the world-  vide malaise had not yet reach-  id the west of Canada. The  opic of conversation was a  :harity soccer game which was  upcoming.  "We've lost our goalie,"  said my brother-in-law.  "What happened to him,"  said my sister.  "He took an overdose and  has been rushed to hospital."  One does not expect to hear  ...  of overdose cases being rushed .  to hospital in rural Scotland, so  I enquired.  It was a tale which may  become all too familiar. The  goalie had beenumemployed  for two and a half years and  couldn't find work. His wife  and child had left him. The attempt at suicide was the result  of prolonged misery and loss of  self-esteem.  This is the kind of social  misery that we can expect during the period forecast in  Lalonde's 'recovery budget'.  The belt that was tightened progressively by Gerald Bouey is to  remain tight for several years.  It is hard to avoid feeling  serious misgivings about the  "^  direction of our society. We are  told that the Japanese are spending millions of dollars retraining their ���'���population' for a hew  technological future. Here in  Canada our politicians are  seeking to balance last year's  books and in the process  casting millions of Canadians  adrift without hope of a decent  future.  For those who cannot be  moved by sympathy for the  unemployed, who cannot  visualize the torn lives, the  shattered dreams, the broken  families but can only feel when  they themselves are being affected there is another spectre  which follows hard on the heels  of prolonged social misery.  That second spectre is social  unrest.  The comfortably smug cannot expect to live untrammelled  by the misery of the  unemployed and the hopeless.  There will be an increase in  suicides and murder, in child  abuse and in crime. There will  be an attendant social cost here  and in the increased policing  which will be called for in the  turbulent times which could lie  just ahead.  Finally, when the poor and  the dispossessed have lashed  out at themselves they will  begin to lash out at the rest of  society and the future could be  bleaker than most of us have  ever known.  Meanwhile we have a federal  government which offers us  v more sugar-coated restraint in  the face of chronic, some say  ���ermanent high unemployment. We have a provincial  le der running happily convinced he is going to be reelected by preaching the need  for continued restraint.  Our society and our way of  life has reached a crisis stage  and our leaders seem unaware  of it. They are offering tired old  bromides and yesterday's visions. We need bold and imaginative thought and we need  a degree of awareness and cooperation among our people  that we have not known before  if we are to avoid becoming permanent residents of history's  ashcan.  At the present time when cooperation is a must too many of  our would-be leaders are  preaching division and fear.  They are calling for restraint  when imagination and courage  are needed. With a seriously ill  economy on their hands they  are calling in the leeches. It is a  disquieting time.  In the Highlands  In the highlands, in the country places,  Where the old plain men have rosy faces,  And the young fair maidens  Quiet eyes;  Where essential silence chills and blesses,  And for ever in the hill-recesses  Her more lovely music  Broods and dies���  O to mount again where erst J haunted;  Where the old red hills are bird-enchanted,  And the low green meadows  Bright with sward;  And when even dies, the million-tinted,  And the night has come, and planets glinted,  Lo the valley hollow  Lamp-bestarred!  O to dream, O to awake and wander  There, and with delight to take and render,  Through the trance of silence,  Quiet breath!  Lo! for there, among the flowers and grasses,  Only the mightier movement sounds and passes;  Only winds and rivers,  Life and death.  Robert Louis Stevenson  So much for the wisdom and:  creative problem solving skills  of our politicians. Canada is  currently suffering from terrible unemployment; nobody  wants our mineral products; we  can't sell our wood; and we  have to give our wheat away  dirt cheap. As far as being  hewers of wood and drawers of  water is concerned, Canadians  would be just as well off drawing wood and hewing water.  But all this time, right in.  front of our very eyes, the solu-;  tion to unemployment and our #  poor export markets has been  there. It's time Canada took  advantage of its one superior  product - its athletes.  Canadian athletes have been  cleaning up all over the world,  -.   in golf,  tennis,  skiing,   field  hockey, wheelchair marathons.  In every field of athletic enterprise, except one, Canada is  producing   superior,   world-  class sportsmen. Ironically, in  the one area where we've had  enough sense to export our  athletes - in ice hockey - we are  mediocre,  but at least those  athletes are cleaning up in the  U.S.  and elsewhere.   Isn't it  about   time  these  sportsmen  started   contributing   to   the  economic welfare of Canada?  What we need in this country  is an Athlete Marketing Board,  a federal agency like the Egg  Marketing Board to sell our :  athletes in other countries. Imagine what we could do with ,  just  one Gretzky;  we  could  build hospitals, roads, schools  and, all kinds of other things,  and   that's   just   from   the  residuals on his TV commer- ;  cials. i  The other day Carling ;  Bassett made $16,000 in a ten- ���  nis game. This kid is 15 years J  old. Fifteen! I've got things in -  my refrigerator older than that. ���  With the proper management, '-  Ms. Bassett could contribute "  mightily to the gross national I  produce; say $100,000 a year '  for ten years, and that's just I  one kid. Canada is supposed to C.  be good at selling its natural ;  resources. Isn't Carling a C.  natural resource like a tree or ij  an oil well, or a wheat field? I ���  tell you we've been missing the ,  boat. :  Imagine what an Athlete :  Marketing Board could dp with ;  say Allen Eagleson as chair- j  man. The infrastructure of the ;  board is already there. We have ���  "Participaction" encouraging ]  everybody to get out to sweat ���  and stretch. It's a simple matter ]  of picking out the fastest and \  strongest and providing them *  with proper training. Then we \  can sell them to the highest bid- \  der. Imagine what the Japanese \  would pay for some tall blonde ?  athlete. The Japanese are much . \  too busy producing things to f  raise athletes of their own. Let  them do what they're good at  and we'll do what we're good ,.;  at. We buy their cars and they ";  buy our athletes. ;  What's in it for the athletes? ;  Simple. The marketing board ;  provides their training and pro- " ���  motes and sells them. The -'���  board also provides job securi- '  ty. When the jocks are too old )  to compete, the board will *.'  simply sell them off to the peo- '.  pie who already use old  athletes. The beer companies ;i  will buy them for salesmen, the �����  Amway Corporation for sales �����  representatives, and American -.*  TV as sports commentators. ���:  For the really special ones, the -f  board could use them as 'XL  coaches for breeding purposes, "%  to keep up the quality of the J  genetic pool. \  Unemployment will be a \  thing of the past. Everybody \  will be so hard at work k  sharpening up their bowling r  skills, or golf game, or ��  horseshoe pitching, and so on, ��  that there will be no time for *;  traditional forms of work. s  This modest scheme is not 1\  without its problems. We ��  would have to provide some in- ��;  itial investment in such projects I;  as ruining open pit mines in v  order to build golf courses, ';  ploughing up parking lots to 5  construct tennis courts, and ;:  destroying shopping centres to :-  plant playing fields.

Today, the terrible threat of  nuclear annihilation hangs like  an ominous cloud over the  heads of all human beings inhabiting this earth. No danger  of this magnitude has ever confronted human kind in all of  recorded history.  The arms race has now  reached terrifying proportions  and the foolish game of  "Oneupmanship" now being  played by world, leaders is  dangerous in trie extreme. For  some unfathomable reason it  seems to have escaped the attention of present world  powers that nuclear weapons as  a means of defense or offense  can never be used. To do so  would spell the end of man's  existence upon this planet and  the continued presence of these  deadly weapons poses a constant-threat to man's survival.  We stand today at the very  edge of this awful abyss. One  error in judgement, one moment of panic, one accident,  can unleash a nuclear  nightmare upon the world.  Nothing would be left then but  the smoke curling up from the  ashes of our once beautiful  planet.  It is quite possible that there  will be no human intelligence  then to make any kind, of an  assessment, but should there  be, what kind of questions  would he be\ asking himself as  he surveyed the smoking ruins  Skookum  0 0 0  lyiark Guignard  My office is so small...  that if I drop my pencil it has to  land on end.  1980 VW J ETTA  GREAT FAMILY CAR  ; 4 cyl, automatic transmission,  deluxe interior, AM/FM radio,  dual remote mirrors, electric  rear defogger, sunroof, radials,  a huge trunk, floor mats, clock.  29,800 miles    .

Firstly, I think he would  have to ask himself why we did  not realize that the piling up of  nuclear arms as a deterrent to  nuclear war was not only  wasteful of human and  material resources but in the  year 1983 had become a totally  futile exercise. All humanity,  seemingly paralyzed, watched  with horror as one deadly  weapon succeeded another in  the mad race for nuclear  supremacy; a race in which all  would lose; a race toward  man's extinction.  Secondly, I think he would  have to ask himself why, at this  critical time in history, politicians should still have felt constrained to hew to the party  line? With nuclear annihilation  staring us in the face why  would not our representatives  in parliament have shown some  real leadership? In the matter  of human survival why did they  not put their political affiliations to one side and more fairly attempt to represent the people who elected them to office?  . Instead,'���'��� being creatures of  habit, they clung desperately to  their old traditional way of doing things. Had they developed  a larger awareness in this one-  area alone, humanity might  have been saved.  Thirdly and perhaps most  importantly I think he would  have asked himself why we did  not realize that we had so little  time left? Even back in 1983  had the governments of the  world made a concerted effort  to turn this thing around our  chances: of avoiding a nuclear  war were not good, but we did  have a chance. Instead, world  leaders chose to squander this  precious time when we might  still have saved ourselves and  all future generations, in a  useless jockeying for position.  Albert Einstein, one of the  greatest scientists that ever lived saw the picture clearly wheri  he uttered these now famous  words some years before his  death, "The splitting of the  atom has changed everything  save man's mode of thinking  and thus we drift toward un-  parallelled catastrophe."

Box 375, Cowrie Street,  Credit Union Building  Sechelt, B.C., VON 3A0  885-2291 ADV't  Editor, ���:',..:������  The 25,000 member Hospital  Employees' Union wishes, to go  on record as opposing the  testing of the cruise missile jn  Canada;  We believe disarmament is a  health care issue because health  must how compete with the  military for tax funds. In-  Canada, for instance, half of;:  the money that provinces spend  on health comes from the  federal government. As health  care workers, H.E.U. members  see daily the effects of govern-.  ment underfunding of our  health care system. While  hospitals are forced to become  martyrs of fiscal restraint, the  Canadian military is  guaranteed a spending hike of  inflation plus three per cent.  H.E.U. believes the cruise  missile is not just another  nuclear bomb, but a dangerous  new weapon which will increase the likelihood of nuclear  war.  We contend it is unthinkable  for the government to agree to  test the cruise missile guidance .  system in Alberta. Unthinkable  because less than six months  ago, in municipal referendums,  hundreds of thousands of  Canadians registered their opposition to a continuation of  the arms race. Unthinkable  because a recent national  Gallup Poll found that a majority of Canadians specifically  opposed the testing of the  cruise missile in Canada.  If the Canadian government  agrees to the testing, it will  destroy our country's longstanding international reputation as a peacemaker, and  make us an aggressive and ac-'-'������������  tive participant in the escalation of the arms race.  H.E.U. believes it has a  responsibility to speak out  against the unchecked arms  race. Therefore,'we will be officially endorsing the Walk for  Peace scheduled to be held in  Vancouver on April 23, 1983.  Our members will participate in  the Walk under our banner,  "Peace is the Ultimate Health  Victory."  In addition, we have written  Prime Minister Trudeau to  register our opposition to  cruise missile testing in  Canada.  Your very truly  J.D. Gerow  Secretary-Business Manager  Transition  house is  needed  Editor,  We on the Sunshine Coast  are very fortunate in having'a  transition home and refuge. I  would like to take this opportunity to thank the women and  their staff for the wonderful  help and comfort they have  given me in my days of stress  and anxiety.  Without   their   help  understanding  I     ~"'d  never  have   gotten   through   my  traumatic experience alone.  We as wives and mothers  with children are fortunate indeed for the work these women  do. Some people will not ever  realize that we are individuals  in our own way and have every  right in this male ego oriented  world to exist and live like  human beings instead of being  made to think we are second-  class chattels.  I wish to express to the  public to help all one can, to  give at least your moral support  to these wonderful women. I  do not have to name names for  they know who Ihave been in  contact with, and I cannot express myself and thank them  enough for their support. I  shall always be grateful. Thank  you also to my very dear family  and friends.

Roberts Creek
ker Park
debate lively
by Jeanie Norton, 886-9609
Judging from the comments
afterward, last Wednesday's
Community Association
meeting was anything but dull.
In fact, discussion became
downright heated when, the
question of putting a ball diamond in Cliff Gilker Park
came up.
There were good arguments
both for and against and feeling was so strong that two committees were struck to investigate the pros and cons of
the suggestion.
Also of concern were complaints about School Board
policy on renting out the new
Joint Facility. This was
primarily because the Fitness
Class was not able to use the
gym during Spring Break.
Board Chairman Bruce
Puchalski explained later,
however, that the group could
have used the gym if they's
been willing to pay for a janitor
to come out to open and lock
up. The Board's policy will be
reviewed at tomorrow night's
meeting. Hopefully the Community Facility Committee will
come up with some solutions to
such problems.
No date has been set for
Roberts Creek Daze as yet, but
a general plan of activites was
outlined at a meeting last week.
There'll be the Mr. Roberts
Creek   Daze   contest   and   a
dance at the Community Hall
and the kids' games, food
booths, and crafts fair will be
down by the mouth of the
Creek as usual.
The Hall Committee is
organizing the Daze but they
need lots more help. It's a community project so. if you have
any ideas please bring them up.
There's another meeting
Thursday, May 10, at 1 p.m. at
the Clubhouse next to Seaview
i Thursday night crib at the
Roberts Creek Legion wound
up the season last week with
one last round of crib, prizes,
and refreshments served by the
Ladies Auxiliary. Mike
Cawthra won 1st prize for the
highest overall score for the
year, Lil Flumerfelt was 2nd,
and Fred Horton was 3rd.
The weekly winners were
Olga Polluck 1st, Joe Kertz
2nd, and Billie Rodgers the
booby prize.
The auxiliary wish to thank
all the players for their support
and hope, to see everyone back
the first week in November.
Thursday night bingo starts
next week, May 5.
The ladies of "The
Clubhouse" are holding a
"Plant, Rummage, Etc. Sale"
this Saturday, April 30, from
10 to 12 at the Clubhouse next

Gibsons Library and
National Book Week
In celebration of National
Book Week, Gibsons Public
Library, has designated April
23 to April 30, inclusive, a Fine
Free week. .
Take a look around your
home, maybe you too are harbouring an overdue book. Did
Aunt Daisy ever return that
book she was reading last summer, or is it still out on the
porch? Whatever happened to
"How to Build a Cement
Boat"? Are you still trying to
get the mix right or did you sail
off into the sunset, book in
hand? And this one, missing
now for over a year, "Natural
Childbirth", now that really
boggles the mind!
For those of you that have
fines outstanding, come on in
and see us and we will wipe the
slate clean. Then you can start
to borrow books again.
So here is your chance Jo gej,
rid of all those giiilt feelings
and at no charge, so hurry back
with those books.
We had fun last week listening to Nest telling Dragon
stories and she has kindly
agreed to continue Storytirrie,
every other Wednesday, for at
least another month or two. A
little bird told me that Nest will
be reading in the library, April
27, at 10:30 a.m., stories about
owls, woodpeckers and
suchlike. So come along and
join us! •

perimeter trails almost completed and picnic sites being
Gravelling of the road began
last Tuesday, and Alderman ;
Ken Short announced that the
only problem was that gravel
trucks had to be hauled up the
road site by a cat because of
the incline.
Clearing has been completed, and logs have been
skidded out, sorted and piled,
ready for tender.
Other logs have been piled
on the access road, waiting for
NEED programme workers to
make use of them.
Werner Born was chosen out
of 25 applicants to be supervisor of the NEED programme, which will build picnic tables and benches for the
new park, repair the fences and
stands at Hackett Park, shore

Whenever a trip is  planned, the sun is sure to  shine, and we credit Win  Stevens the tour organizer with  having a direct line to our  Maker. Thanks Win and Alex  for yet another good day.  Next month a trip is planned  to the fish hatchery on the  Capilano, with hopefully, a  dinner in Vancouver to complete the day. Details at the  May 2 general meeting.  This month I want to talk  about some of the seniors who  make Harmony Hall such a  special place. We have the addition to the hall completed, and  a big vote of thanks is due to Ed  Connor, who drew up the plans  for this addition, and did all the  ground work to make it a reality.  Ed and Molly Connor are  two very special people who  work hard to make a go of  things. They run the carpet  bowling and dart tournaments  very efficiently every Wednes  day afternoon from October to  May. Ed is responsible for our  electronic bingo board, the  bonanza board, the PA system  and manages the bingo. They  are always on hand when needed, and I hope they enjoy a  much needed holiday when  they get around to it.  None of this pleasure we all  receive from Harmony Hall  would be possible with out the  large contributions of labour  given by Ed, along with Vic  Eckstein, Jim Holt, Dick  Oliver, Julius Sorensen, Irene  Bushfield and my late husband  Len Coates. Others who helped  in various ways are Mel Eckstein, Eva Oliver, Molly Connor, Helen Raby, John and  Helen Thurston, Tor Strand.  Nqw some newcomers are  carrying the torch, and getting  things done. Norm and Mary  Lambert do a marvelous job of  checking up on conditions at  the hall, cutting the grass, and  just generally showing an interest.  Bill Martin, who is in charge  of hall rentals, has many  talents, and has plans for  eliminating the condensation  problem in the hall. He also  overhauls the machinery, and  keeps a watchful eye on the  hall. Cathy, his wife, looks  after membership and is always  ready to lend a hand.  Marj Leslie and Ann Fitchett  are two newer members who  work very hard at their respective responsibilities, secretary  and treasurer.  Grace Gilchrist, vice-  president and husband Jim are  a couple of willing workers.  The Chamberlins, Sam and  Irene and the Campbells,  Frank and Peggy, are a foursome who look after the Saturday evening dance and also the  singing group. We have other  newcomers who are showing a  willingness to help, and your  participation will bring you  pleasure I am sure.  One last member I would like  to mention is Joy Maxwell,  who, after many attempts, has  learned to swim. I am so proud  of her as she proves the  point���you are never too old to  learn.  Many of our members enjoy  bowling at Gibsons Lanes and  we follow their successes with  pride.

The Teachers' Political Action  Committee (TPAC) has been  revived for the purpose of  aiding in the campaign of the  local candidate whose party  will do the most to maintain  and promote the B.C. education system.  TPAC was first formed as an  independent committee of  B.C. teachers to help defeat the  Social Credit government in  1972. The political action of  teachers in that election is said  to have contributed significantly to the Socred defeat.  The local TPAC members'  raised over $200 at their first  meeting and have organized a  meeting of all teachers in the  district who wish to participate  in political action for Tuesday,  at 8 p.m. in the Roberts Creek  Legion.

It starts at noon  and goes to 4 p.m. and you will  be assured of a pleasant afternoon.  . Take the whole family along  and plan to have lunch there as  food of all kinds will be  available. There wiil be games  for the children, a tea garden  for the grownups to relax and  have a cuppa with their friends,  a cake walk, crafts and the ever  popular white elephants. See  you there!  Lots of things going on this  weekend - Friday April 29 is  the Roaring Twenties Show at  Welcome Beach Hall for which  tickets are available at the  Halfmoon Bay Store as well as  at Books n* Stuff in the Mall  and at the Sechelt Carpet Corner. Normally the proceeds  from these shows go towards  fund raising for various  organizations, but this one is  for the purchase of some much  needed equipment replacements and for costumes and expenses for the group itself.  Hopefully there will be another  full house and you can be sure  that your support and participation are really appreciated. So get your ticket  soon and come on out Friday  for a real good evening.  The following night, Saturday April 30, will also be a fun  evening at the hall when the  Recreation Commission sponsors a spaghetti dinner and  dance.  Plans have been changed a  little and the talent show will  not take place. However there  will be live music provided by  Lee Taylor and Friends who  play mostly country rock which  is suitable for all age groups.  Happy Hour is at 6:30 and dinner at 7:30. Dancing will follow  until 1 a.m. Tickets are $6.50  and are at The Halfmoon Bay  Store as well as the Book Store  on Cowrie St.  Some local interest has been  expressed in the formation of a  fun league softball group. This  would take place at Connor  Park on Sunday afternoons at  around 2 p.m. and would get  underway possibly on the Sunday of May 8. It is a good way  of spending an afternoon outdoors with the whole family.  Those of you who are interested could give Julie Hyatt  a call at 885-3585. She will give  you more details'.  The Halfmoon Bay Hospital  Auxiliary will be having their  regular monthly meeting on  Monday morning of May 2 at  10 a.m. This will as usual be at  the Welcome Beach Hall.  There is always a need for new  active members for this busy  group and you can be sure that  you will be made most  welcome. If someone has  recently moved into the area  you will find that the auxiliary  is a great group to get to know  and that your help in any small  way is greatly appreciated.  Can anyone give any hints as  to what action you should take  against skunks who seem to.  take a shine to your area? We  seem to be getting plagued with  the creatures who in the middle  of the night give off such fumes  that you awake choking for  breath. Then the stink lingers  for days. I'm sure that many  .other people are experiencing  the same infuriating incidents  and would like to know what to  do to discourage the critters. So  if you know of any miraculous  or easy deterrent I would sure  appreciate a phone call and  would pass the work on to  anyone else who is suffering as  we are!  *- *~"^^* ���*"" j~^"'J'J"Jnmj*i<r-raTTiriaT^frnian ifcmirr in tk aa in na i*n m  HM'ijW   ^W$  s  * LIGHT CLEARING  * EXCAVATIONS  * DRIVEWAYS  * SAND  ^  * SEPTIC SYSTEMS      * GRAVEL  * LANDSCAPING * ROCK  "Free Estimates"  Jim Waterhouse 886-  R.R. #4, Reed Road, Gibsons, B.C.  :;  I  I  p'  I  I1  P: ���  I'  PVNM"'  JIM PRICE  THE MAN FOR  MACKENZIE RIDING  Working for more jobs  for the coastal communities  British Columbia ^j Social Oedit forty  To all Social Credit supporters:  Let's get the Sunshine Coast on the map!

Many marchers  looked down from the street  above and listened to the public  address system while Mayor  Harcourt Of Vancouver addressed the crowd; telegrams in  support of the Peace Walk were  read; singers such as Ronnie  Gilbert and Holly Near sang  their very moving numbers for  which they are famous.  Everyone mingled, while  discussing their personal  reasons for being there. At least  80,000 marched, an estimated  400 of these were from the Sunshine Coast led by Mike Burns  of the Sunshine Coast Peace  Movement.  The march began at 12 noon  exactly, crossed Burrard  Bridge, circled the courthouse,  went.down Hornby Street and  under Burrard Bridge on to  Sunset Beach.  From infant to  elderly-���from baby carriages  to wheelchairs and crutches,  everyone was friendly and considerate. Some chanted, some  sang but most quietly walked  along, some pushing carriages  or pulling wagons.  The banners, signs, buttons  and costumes were marvels of  ingenuity. * 'Arms are for hugging babies���not for making  war"; "Raygun would have us  rest in peace"; "No Nukes";  "Test the Cruise Missile in  Reagan's Ranch"; and "You  cannot hug your child with  nuclear arms" were some of  them but there were hundreds.  Bone weary after the march,  we felt exhilarated by the whole  wonderful experience.  Have you got your ticket for  "Gold Night" on June 1? The  tickets are going fast.  Best of Luck,  Trudy & Joe!

Simpkins  Stonemason -Bricklay  885-2787 '. /jg  by Jane McOuat, 883-9342  It only took 30 years, but  finally Flo Williams has a  telephone. This month all the  rest of the 16 East Egmont (the  ORIGINAL Egmont!)  subscribers will also receive service. Actually it has been seven  years that Mrs. Williams has  been corresponding and  meeting with B.C. Telephone  officials and she started that  just shortly after waiting and  corresponding and meeting  with Hydro officials from 1972  until March 1976 to get electricity!  "If I'd known how long they  were both going to take I don't  know if I would have done it!"  she said in a telephone interview. When our good  telephone man John (Elsdon)  hooked her phone up on Thursday she phoned her son Jack  and family but no one was  home so next she phoned her  friend Mrs. Newcombe in  Sechelt. I asked her how she felt  about it and she replied, "It  was like a dream come true  after all these years���I could:  hardly believe it."  When I asked John Elsdon  about how she seemed to like it  he said, "Well, I didn't actually  talk to her about it that  much���she was happy of  course, but when I went to  phone but to contact my working partner, let's just say I  couldn't get on the line for a  while." After all who'd want to  butt in on the first in-home  phone conversation in 30 years,  not John!  A very important point that  Flo brought up, was that now  the five children who live over  there, are not so cut off when  the boat takes them back after  school. It's fine for the adults  as they have chosen their way of  life, but for the children it  means being able to talk with  friends after school, in private,  not on the CB anymore. Congratulations East Egmont and  welcome to the Peninsula by  phone!  Still more Egmont news. I  went up to the unofficial opening of Joe and Trudy Muller's  Backeddy Pub: What a, scene  .^0^^^^i^^miles of  ;t)pening;hbur there were 40  curious, happy people in the  pub. The place looks just great  from   the   natural   cedar  finishing and panorama view?  windows right to the bar itself-  and a kitchen so bright and  clean it will be a pleasure to eat  triere. Musn't forget the Hum-;;  mingbird feeders either. Even  the birds drink nectar at the  Backeddy Pub! Good on you  Mullers. ;;  Now to business. On Mon-!:  day, April 25 at 7:30 p.m. at  Madeira Park Elementary, Ed  and Vera McCallister will show  their fabulous slides of the  South Pacific.

'  Lion Jack Vanderpol,  883-9165, has. more information on this but basically Lions  International are sponsoring a  Ride-o-rama weekend at  Playland on May 7 and 8. For  ROBERTS CREEK FIRE DISTRICT  PUBLIC NOTICE  OUTDOOR BURNING PERMITS  Within the boundaries of said district, under the provisions of the Forest Act, and with cooperation of the Forestry Service, the Roberts Creek Fire Department will issue burning permits in the following manner;  From May 1 - October -31, 1983  Step No. 1  Step No. 2 -  An application form obtainable from:  Roberts Creek Post Office  Regional District Office  Any Volunteer Fireman  Application will be filled out and deposited in letter slot of side door of Roberts Creek Fire  Hall.  Every Thursday, or as required, a duly appointed Fire Prevention Officer will take these application forms and personally inspect the proposed burning site, if approved, upon receiving the sum of $5.00, may issue a burning < permit, good for 30 days.  No permit is required for a screen covered incinerator.  No permit is required for beach fires (small) below high fide line  and maintaining fen feet from any flamsv*. s lebris.  Glen Kraus Fire Uhief  $6 you can ride every ride at  Playland as many times as you  wish. The only catch is that  tickets must be purchased  before May 2 from Oak Tree  Market or the Chevron station.  Only in the Harbour you  say? Yes���a gentleman left his  wallet at the Gulf station on  Friday night. Thinking that he  might be heading for the ferry  the attendant called up the  Chevron station and asked if  they could flag him down. Dick  Hinsche said "right o," and in  15 minutes the man was back  and quite grateful for the  wallet's return. You can be sure  he'll want to buy gas at both  stations from now on!  If you own a dog in Madeira  Park please keep it home.  There are scads of them at the  shopping centre and while it's  one thing to come and go shopping with your dog (some folks  don't even agree.with that) it's  another to let it hangout for  hours in the area. Now let's see,  if I was a dog I'd go where it  smelled like food���good food!  If you recognize someone's dog  hanging around���do the dog  and the owner a favour and  phone���you don't have to be or  feel nasty���it's a very caring  thing to do. Either the dog will  be harmed or the owner will be  fined if it all keeps up.  Sophie's Ruby Lake  Cheesecake could possibly be  more outrageous than the  Banana Cream Pie. I could  write about every restaurant  and pub this week���they're all  so gung ho right now. Lord  Jim's new chef and Nikki  Weber as entertainment agent,  Garden Bay Hotel and Pub  looking spiffier each week and  open on weekends also has a  new chef. The Hotel is solid as  usual, and of course there's Eg-  mont's Backeddy Pub for eats  too. Try everyone and don't  forget Colonel Flounder!  The dart league held its  awards banquet at the Garden  Bay Dining Lounge on April  22. Confound it���if I  understood darts better I'd be  able to sort out what all the  names did. Next week I will  "understand darts". Sorry  Ruth.

They used to be  owned by Woodward's department store. Don't ask me why  they had them but they did. Used  to  keep them in  their  warehouse. Herb bought them  anyhow and set them up in the  Arcade.  One of them had  several teeth fallen out in the  lower jaw. I stuck my hand inside his mouth and replaced  them..One was called Ptolemy,  a tall fellow and the other called  Antiochus, was short. He had  apparently tried to rob a temple  and been caught. Someone had  thrown a spear at him and there  was indeed a wound right  beside his nose. I think Herb  paid $150 apiece for those  mummies. They pulled the people in for awhile."  But despite the mummies,  the days of Wilson's Arcade of  Mysteries are numbered. The  reasons are not financial but involve a gradual succumbing to  various pressures. Chief  among these is the adamant opposition of Mrs. Clark. Since  losing her case, she has become  more ill-tempered than ever.  Her assaults on the wall grow  louder and more frequent.  Often they interrupt Herb's  monologues, much to his  displeasure.  In addition, the police now  begin to harass the Arcade,  following rumours that it has  begun to attract a criminal element. There is an element of  truth in this. Ex-cons and  known rounders do occasional  ly drop by to trade a few words  with the old master thief.  Herb Wilson, over the long  years, has developed a decided  aversion to law officers of any  -stripe. Sometimes he forgets to  be properly respectful. "I have  a toilet out here in the back.  Would you like to stick your  nose in that, too?" he enquires  of one particularly persistent  beat constable. (Whether or  not the officer takes him up on  the suggestion is not recorded.)  But the writing is definitely  on that broomstick beleaguered  wall. One day, a fedup Herb  Wilson simply decides to  capitulate. He and Jack Bird  dismantle the Arcade, load the  contents into a moving van and  disappear, lock, stock and  mummies into the suburbs.  It seems to Herb Wilson that  he has always been running  from someone or something.  Flights of one sort or another  have characterized his life. The  pattern was established early; a  long-time ago.

At Elphinstone  \  '.;.'<  n  I  4'J  ��� H  K'?  by George Matthews  The collaboration between  Ensemble Theatre and the  Elphinstone Drama Club in  performing "The Effects of  Gamma Rays on Man-in-the-  Moon Marigolds" proved two  things during performance last  week: first, that craftsmanship  and the basics of good theatre  can overcome most of the  obstacles of performing in a  high school gym; and second,  that student players, working  with skilled, experienced adults  are capable of near brilliant  work.  The play itself, in my opinion, is thread-bare and  simplistic; relying for its  credibilityA on a dubious  analogy between the effects of  radiation, and the effects of  imperfect love on growing  things. The characters are fair  ly shallow and one-dimensional  and any message the play  pretends to be presenting begs  the question "So what?".  But the performances in  Judith Wilson's production of  Gamma Rays make the play  more than adequate, and the  students and their adult stage  partner deserved much bigger  audiences than the 40 people at  the play on Saturday.  This is good theatre, quality  theatre, and anyone who missed this performance should be  kicking themselves, not just fpi-  missing a good, cheap  evening's entertainment, - but".  for not supporting a skilled and  enthusiastic cast of players.  Selia Karsten, as Beatrice,  the mother, is-a very good actress, and despite the fact that  we have seen her portray this  character ih her other recent  work, her professionalism on  stage is obviously the catalyst  for the remarkable student performances.  Debbie Middleton, as the  shy, studious daughter is  superb in every way. She  achieves m the most fundamental way a totally believable  Matilda.  Stephanie Sheridan, as the  outgoing bubble-gummer looks  and acts as though she just  stepped out of the girl's  washroom after sneaking a  smoke between classes. She has  so much dynamic energy that  she sometimes seems to have  trouble keeping up with  herself.  Ldreria- Henry as Nanny, an  ancient crone who has suffered .  a stroke, is nearly" flawless?r  This high school student is so  totally in character, that the audience is never nagged by those  usual  comments  like   "How-  does a girl that young act that  old?"  And Laurie Brown, as the  thoroughly unpleasant cat-  skinning student has put  together such a delightful one  minute role that the audience is  clearly disappointed when she  leaves the stage.  Director, and Elphinstone  drama teacher Judith Wilson  has coached her students well  and deserves congratulations  for putting together a very  entertaining evening.  The cooperation of adults  and students obviously works  well and hopefully will continue in future Elphinstone  productions.  Coast News, April 25,1983  Gibsons Legion Branch #109  Fri. |�� Sat.

"Odh," I said.  at  He thought it was incredibly funny. As the day progressed I thought it  was incredibly monotonous as we boo-ed and ooh-ed at least a thousand times.  Later we went shopping and right in front of the preserved ginger someone crept up behind him and said, "Boo!" He grabbed my hand tightly and turned round and said with great dignity, "I wasn't scared you  know."  As we paid for our groceries he told her he wasn't scared of anything.  "Not even ghosts?" she teased. "No such thing," he said with an 'I'm  not absolutely sure' look on his face. "Well, of course," she smiled, "if  you don't believe in things they aren't really there." They grinned at  each other and we went home.  That evening I was standing contemplating my garden when her  remark popped back into my head. I was contemplating the weeds  which were growing faster than the speed of light ready to cast new  seeds over the' unploughed earth. "If I don't believe in them perhaps  'they'll go away." I crossed my fingers for luck. However, lurking in the  midst of the chickweed and shepherd's prose and clover was one lush  growth that 1 certainly didn't want to go away���wonder plant of Spring���giant rhubarb!  Rhubarb tk Ginger jam  4 cups diced rhubarb  1 lemon,  'A cup chopped preserved ginger  Z'/z cups sugar -  'A teaspoon salt  1. Divide lemon into quarters lengthwise, remove the pips and slice as  thinly as you can. The rinds will remain, so if you like only small  chunks of peel divide the lemon to your taste.  2. Mix all ingredients in a bowl, cover and leave overnight.  3. In the morning you will be delighted to see that dots of juice have  oozed out. Plonk everything in a saucepan and bring to the boil. Stir  a little in the beginning to make sure the sugar dissolves, then set  your timer for 20 minutes. Check for setting point in the usual way or  use your sugar thermometre to see that you've reached 221 ��F.  4. Pour into hot jam jars. This recipe fills two 1 Ib. jam jars with a taste  spoonful left over. Seal the jars with wax and label.  Rhubarb and Orange Marmalade  4 cups diced rhubarb  4 cups sugar  2 oranges  . lemon  ���A teaspoon salt  1. Cover the rhubarb with sugar and leave overnight.  2. Cut the oranges and the lemon into small chunks and add tp the  rhubarb with the salt.  3. Treat exactly as the rhubarb and ginger jam pouring into hot jars  when setting point has been reached. This one is juicier than the  other so take care it doesn't boil over. "  4. Seal with wax when cool and label. Fills three I lb. jars.  Incidentally. 4 cups of diced rhubarb is approximately 6 sticks of  rhubarb.  The little bit of marmalade that was left over I poured into a spall  bowl. I thought we could have a taste test later. I trotted off to do some  other little task and when I got back the bowl was scraped clean. Must  have been the ghosts!  ~ t^w.

We go through life, bent on  our own purpose, seeing, yet not really seeing the  beauty around us. In short, many of us don't pause  to smell the roses.  As one travels along our highways, streets and  byways, there is beauty everywhere. As I saw the  flowered trees and shrubs, the, many plots of  gorgeous tulips and other spring flowers, the  thought occurred to me t'u.t people like myself,  who have no garden, owe a. debt of gratitude to all  those people whose labours produce the flowery  spectacle for us and our visitors to enjoy.  Tribute is paid by way of proclamation for so  many good deeds, the latest being for vblunteerism.  I think that there should be such a proclamation for  all those busy gardeners who beautify our surroundings and pathways by their labour of love.  I would, if 1 could, encourage all who own a piece  of property to follow the lead of so many who have,  with pride and devotion, made our community just  that much more beautiful than it would be without  their efforts.  Here's to the gardeners. May they find enjoyment  in their labour, and experience but few disappointments. It would be too much to ask for none, for the  challenge, too; is part of the pleasure of success.  P.S. We sell aids to your gardening needs ��� such  as seeds, planter packs, potting soil, and gardening  gloves.

Last Thursday, the game  chosen for the day was called  1-2-3 plus marked holes. In this  event, the score of only one of  the four member team is used.  On the next hole, two scores  are used, followed by three  scores on the following hole,  then back to one score again.  The added'twist to this event  was the marked holes on the  score card which had to be used  in compiling a total team score  for the game.  Left-handed Andy Grey  must have inspired his team of  Al White, Ab Chambers and  Torre Orr to great lengths, to  post a score of 56.  Jim Budd led his team of  Jack Milburn, Bill Mueller and  Ken Gallier to second place  with a total score of 62.  Gibsons  rugby win  GRC DUMPS KATS  In a game described as tough  but clean, which saw an  unusual number of injuries, the  Gibsons Rugby Club got  revenge for its loss two weeks  ago, by grinding out a 10-6 victory over the Kats of Vancouver in the semi finals of the  Vancouver Rugby Union's  fourth division.  The. game, played at the  Elphinstone field, saw bodies  dropping like flies and coach  Pomfret credits the younger  players who had to fill the holes  with fighting off an older, bigger Kats' side for the win.  Tom Kennedy scored the  first try for Gibsons, taking the  ball from scrum half Ken  Miles, in a loose ruck and carrying in for the score.  Brian Evans, playing at wing  forward capped the scoring in  the second half, assuring a Gibsons win. Playoff action will  continue next week.  Jim Gilchrist 228-607  Norm Lambert 250-682  The Y.B.C.

At last  report he is resting at home and  coming along OK.  Al Bullock is also a patient at  St. Mary's. Hurry up and get  well, fellows. You are all missed.  At this month's board  meeting, a discussion took  place concerning a "dress  code" for members and guests  and green fee golfers while on  the course, or in the clubhouse.  Proper type of clothing must  be worn when using the club's  facilities. No blue jean cutoffs, short shorts, plus the  habit of not wearing shirts or  shoes   will   be   permitted.  Members, I am sure, will  follow this dress code. Green  fee players and guest's will be  denied access to the course if  these rules are not followed.  Next tournament is the  President vs Vice President  classic with the losing team  paying for lunch. This is an  18-hole, 100 per cent handicap,  shotgun start. The event will  qualify 28 low net scores for a  special event tournament on  May 15th.

Mr.  Giannakos, for the company,  estimated that this construction will give approximately 40  unemployed people employment for at least six months  with 20 full-time jobs available  on completion.  Mr. Giannakos also requested support from council  for his application for a bus  licence to carry foot passengers  from the Langdale ferry terminal to Seaside Plaza in  Lower Gibsons. This would be  a regularly scheduled run which  would meet all ferries. Council  endorsed both proposals from  Mr. Giannakos.

From all reports the she  shows lots of promise and if she  is able to take the coveted cup  that has been held by the New  York Yacht Club for 129 years,  and bring it to Canada, then the  next challenge race would be  sailed in the Gulf of Georgia  and the Sunshine Coast would  have a ringside seat for the  event!  The reason that the buffet  and film is a bargain at Lord  Jim's for $10 per person is that  in Calgary, Edmonton and  Vancouver this type of function will cost $150 per plate. I  heard via the grapevine that the  buffet at Lord Jim's will include Brad Hope's Tidal Rush  Farm raised salmon hot smoked at Nelson Island just for this  event!  local folks a chance to see what  the new owners of Lord Jim's  Lodge have been doing with  improvements to the buildings  and grounds.

An Edmonton artist, Peter  Lewis, whose contribution to  Alberta's 75th anniversary  celebrations was an artificial  waterfall 300 feet wide and 210  feet high over Edmonton's high  level bridge, has a 90,000 mile  Peace Dove at the planning  stage.  This dove, which would  stretch across the continent, the  beak at Vancouver, the eye in  Edmonton, one wing in  Canada, the other well into  Texas and the southern States,  with the tail touching  Washington, DC and Ottawa,  will be outlined by bonfires;  4,500 of them at 20 mile intervals.  The idea is that the dove be  ignited on. January 7, 1985  (Christmas Day. according to  the Julian calendar),  photographed by satellite and  relayed to TV screens around  the world. Chemicals would be  used so that the heat-sensitive  satellite can clearly delineate  the dove even through cloud.  Supported by the Canada  council and other federal and  provincial agencies, Lewis is  working on the logistics of his  "global art" project. A quarter  of a million volunteers will be  needed to build the 30 foot high  by 30 foot diameter bonfires in  17 states and 7 provinces,  which are to resemble missiles.  Asked why he would spend  three years on a project which  will go up in smoke in 12 hours,  Lewis said, "It's a peaceful  statement which will heighten  our level of consciousness, and  the symbolism of the burning  missiles which turn into a dove  can be easily understood  worldwide."  In Boise, Idaho, last year a  group of people who had  wondered what ordinary people could do to help avert a  nuclear disaster got together  and made a peace quilt which :  was sent to the Spyiet JJnion.  The 35 people from all walks of  life each contributed a 12 inch '(  square illustrating the theme of i  peace and friendship or scenes  from Idaho. The colourful nine  by seven foot friendship quilt  was displayed in Boise and  Washington, DC before being  presented to the Soviet embassy  from where it was sent to the  Soviet Women's Committee in  Moscow.  Naive? Maybe, but the people of Boise felt the need to  make a gesture of friendship  and do something.  Most of us feel helpless in the  face of national rocket rattling  and no one probably more so  than children. Those of.us who  are older perhaps don't realize  how difficult it is to face the  possibility of no future when  you are young and should have  everything to look forward to.  This frustration and feeling  of futility may account for the  actions of children all round  the world to organize  themselves into peace groups.  In New York, 14 year old  Monique Grodksi's Children's  Peace Committee continues to  attract new members and new  branches in other countries as  well as across the States and  Canada. In Plainsville, Vermont, 17 year old Hanna  Rabins' Children's Campaign  for Nuclear Disarmament has  now more than 50 branches;  another group in San Francisco  has put out a book, a compilation of children's letters and  drawings called "Children as  Teachers of Peace".  The idea of a Vancouver  teacher Maud Vant to extend  the hand of friendship to  children in the Soviet Union as  a Remembrance Day project  resulted in an impassioned reply from the students of School  372, Leningrad which read in  part, "We do not want to be the  last generation on the  earth...Yes to peace in the  world! No to war! The children  of the world are entitled to a  happy and peaceful life."  tide tables  (['Reference: Point Atkinson,  Pacific Standard Time  GROCERIES  Tues., Apr. 26  Thurs., Apr. 28  'suhdries  0425     14.7  0520     14.1  FISHING  1105       4.6  1210       3.2  TACKLE  1725     13.6  1905     14.4  TIMEX WATCHES  2310       7.6  Wed., Apr. 27  Fri., Apr. 29  lOpen 9-9  0455      14.4  0035       9.3  \ 7 Days a Weak  !

Trudy Muller was in fine form at the opening of the Backeddy  Pub in Egmont last Saturday. -j��neMcOuaiPhoio  Gibsons council's  tax dilemma  Gibsons Council finds itself  caught in a dilemma as far as  institution of the variable tax  rate to assess next year's property taxes is concerned.  Mayor Goddard told council at  last Tuesday's meeting, "we  are in an untenable position.  The government advises iis to  do one thing and our legal  counsel advises us to do  another."  Present ��� government policy,  as outlined in a letter from Jack  Heinrich, minister of municipal  affairs, is to implement enabling legislation at the earliest rop-  CLASSIFIED NOTE  Drop off your Coast News  Classified at Campbell s  Family Shoes. Sechelt;  Book's & Stuff. Sechelt; or  Madeira Park Pharmacy.  Madeira Park.  portunity to establish the  variable tax rate. However, as  the present government may no  longer be in power after the  election on May 5, council does  not know whether or not to  amend the tax forms as the  deadline for printing them falls  before the election. "We're in  trouble whether we do or we  don't", said Jack Copland,  town administrator.  It was pointed out that the  municipality does not have to  institute the variable mill rate  even if the government does  pass the enabling legislation.  There is concern that because^  of the size of the area any  heavily taxed section will move  outside the municipality.  Municipal staff will investigate  the options available to council, which may include using  last year's mill rate again.  The fledgling tourist  development committee of the  Sunshine Coast economic commission took its case for the  creation of a community  development corporation to the  people last week in three  meetings, one each in Gibsons,  Sechelt and Pender Harbour.  The purpose of the public  meetings was to draw on community support for.the committee's plan to create an investment society for the purpose of providing seed capital  to private and public enterprises in the area that are involved in the expansion of  tourist related businesses and  facilities.  Based on the Nanaimo  model of community development corporations, the proposed CDC will evaluate business  proposals, provide management skills, and seek grant funding and private capital to help  businesses, public and private  to raise sufficient funds.  Chairman of the tourist  development committee,  Richard Tomkies, expressed  some disappointment at the  low turnout (ten) in Gibsons, ���  but was more optimistic  following a meeting of 20 in  Sechelt and 25 in Pender Harbour. At each meeting, the  following motion was proposed and at each meeting it passed unanimously: "The people  of the community (Gibsons,  Sechelt, Pender Harbour) present this evening, having been  exposed to the recommendation of the tourism development committee that a community development corporation be formed to improve the  Coast's tourism industry, do  hereby support the earliest for-"  mation and operation of such  an Organization.  Tomkies told the Coast  News that last week's meetings  were just the beginning of the  necessary task of informing the  people of the community about  the proposed corporation and  getting support from every sector of the Coast community.  "Without that across the board  support", said Tomkies, "we  cannot and will not proceed."  He said more meetings will be  held with specific groups in the  area; including labour,  business, wildlife clubs, the Indian band, chambers of commerce  and  arts  groups.

VON ISO 16.  Coast News, April 25,1983  Education and Transportation  by Jim Price, Social Credit  Education  I have some strong views on  education; I guess anyone with  children in the system does. My  views are my own and are not  necessarily the same as the party's or at least the popular  perception of the party's.  First of all, I'm a strong  believer in decentralization. I  do not believe in centralized  government and I think it's too  centralized now. We need local  input. Consequently, I personally favour a much greater  degree of autonomy for our  school boards and I'll certainly  make   this   view   known  wherever and whenever I can.  Another personal belief is  that because education is of  critical importance, it must be  kept constantly under pressure  from the public and the professional educators. This pressure  has to be there to create the best  possible system. There should  be a constant evaluation of the  quality of education in our  schools. If our schools are going to be good, they have to be  constantly under the magnifying glass.  Transportation  Transportation in an area  like ours is very much tied to the  success of the economic base. If  we can create here on the Coast,  a well-rounded economy, the  ferry system we need will  follow.  All of the benefits of a good  ferry system and good roads  and highways will acrue to us if  we provide the economic  climate to warrant it.  Specifically, I've been working, through the Chamber of  Commerce and the economic  commission, for a long time, to  try to have the Comox-Powell  River ferry based here in  Powell River. When the ferry  went into service nobody had  any idea about where it should  be based, but now, I think we  can provide the facts necessary  to have a change made in the  ferry's base. When I'm elected,  I'll have its location negotiated.  This could mean as many as  100 jobs for the Mackenzie  riding.  I think too, that as Social  Credit MLA, I'll be able to  have more influence on the  highways ministry when it  comes to road construction and  upgrading in our area.  We have so much tourist  potential���year round���in our  area, that once the development of this potential is  realized���in the form of tours,,  conventions, business  seminars, not to mention  regular tourist traffic���we will  get the social services, highway  construction and ferry system  we deserve.  by Don Lockstead, MLA NDP  Education  As far as education is concerned, our party's positon is  based on two principles: education determines job prospects  and should be maintained during periods of economic  downturn; and the need for job  retraining will increase ih direct  proportion to the rate of  technological change.  This being the case, we are  commited to the following:  1. Maintaining services to  children by fully funding  schools for September  opening.  2. Returning the industrial and  commercial tax base to  school boards.  3. Reinstating the policy of  "equal opportunity" in  funding local schools.  4. Restoring a climate of trust  and teamwork in running  our schools.  5. Restoring to 'community  colleges the ability to deliver  a comprehensive range of  university transfer, training,  and continuing education  programmes.  6. Ensuring university  autonomy and reaffirming  the principle of academic  freedom.  7. Expanding early childhood  education to meet the needs  of pre-school children.  by George Shaw, Liberal  In   1975   when  the  Social  Credit party were attempting to  win the control of government  from the NDP one of their concerns was the massive build-up  of the educational bureaucracy  in Victoria. In speaking of the  NDP government at that time  they stated that "the Minister  of Education seems determined  to gain control of all educational facilities within our province...at the expense of local  school boards. This move of  the NDP government to centralize control of education in  Victoria means confusion and  frustration   for   local   board  members...and   more   important, it means that educational  policies are being developed  with no real consideration for  the needs and wishes of local  areas."  ..  ;  During the last two years of  the NDP governments term in  office (1974-75) this province  witnessed a massive build-up of  the educational bureaucracy in  Victoria   similar   in   many  respects to that which we have  seen recently with the Social  Credit   government.  We believe that education is  an investment for the future of  B.C. and that the minister of  education   should   be   setting  guidelines only for education  in this province.  Centralized  control of education in Victoria  is not only more expensive in  terms  of administration and  government waste, but educational policies are consequently  developed with no real consideration for the needs and  wishes of local areas. Because  of   the 'complex   nature   of  education and the various problems and needs which exist in  different areas throughout the*  province it is essential that certain decisions be left in the  hands  of locally elected officials who are directly accountable to those who elect them.  Ferry Services And Highways  The  inadequacies  of ferry  scheduling between Langdale  and Horseshoe Bay are obvious  to all of us who live on the Sunshine   Coast   and   who   are  dependant upon this essential  service.   New   and   improved  ferry scheduling with the possible addition of a smaller ferry  on this run, need to be given  urgent regular and dependable  service for their economic well-  being   and   for   the   future  development of tourism and industrial facilities.  We might rightfully expect  that this important link be  given the same consideration as  any major highway iri our province. We can no longer  tolerate those who would feel it  their right to close this highway  at times when this service is  most critical.  I would lobby for and support  legislation  which  while  Deal Writer  ������'������/��� ��� 'ttays; ;> ;���;:;  Are Coming  Sbori;w  recognizing the rights of individuals to protest by way of  strike action, would require  that such action be restricted  during certain periods of the  year and which would require  that a minimal service be offered at all times to allow for  commuters and goods and service vehicles to have constant  access to and from Vancouver.  Improved ferry services  would result in increased vehicle traffic on our highways. In  turn this would require that  highways be upgraded and improved. It is unfortunate that  major highway projects have'  often become political 'footballs' where certain governments might appear to favour  the approval of certain projects  in 'swing' ridings rather than in  those areeas such as our own  which might appear to them to  be on one side of the fence or  the other. Our highways on the  Sunshine Coast are desperately  in need of upgrading and I  would work hard with all levels  of government on both sides of  the legislature to ensure that  highway improvements are  undertaken as soon and as t  quickly as possible.  8. Working cooperatively with  all   interested   parties   to  break down the barriers faced by potential students of  all ages whether these barriers are,financial, physical,  geographical or result from  learning disabilities.  Transportation  The construction of needed  major highway links in the province offers an immediate opportunity to create jobs. We're  not going to promise to spend  more money on highways; we  still don't know what kind of  financial shape the government  is in. But I believe that a more  equitable distribution of the  funds for highways available  would spread the jobs around  in a more satisfactory way. In  Highway Minister Fraser's own  riding, the^government is spending   a   minimum   of   $14  million;   obviously   a   fairer  redistribution   of  funds   will  help our own riding.  In our area, the firm commitment to Highway 101 stopped in 1975 and our major side  roads have been neglected.  There are some other issues  that have been neglected; the  Langdale by-pass heeds to be  worked on in consultation with  local residents and businessmen. Small truckers have  been hurt be ministry regulation and that needs attention.  Ferries need a new look as  well. We have to reexamine the  use of our ferries to see whether  or not smaller ferries running  more frequently wouldn't be  more appropriate.  Hodgson has done a basically good job and I respect his  openness, but his hands have  been tied by this government. I  think we're in a better position  to negotiate with federal  authorites for restoration of  funding than the present  government is.  In short, there is a lot to be  done in our area, and much of  it has to do with the neglect of  the past eight years.

On the 18th: A male juvenile  was apprehended at the Super-  Valu store for shoplifting.  A power mower unit was  stolen from the Roberts Creek  area. The mower was the property of the Sunshine Coast  Regional District and was used  as an attachment to a tractor  unit. The mower's value is  estimated at over $200.  On the 19th: Willful damage in  excess of $50 was done to the  flower pots located in front of  Molly's Reach in Lower Gibsons.  Vandalism was done to a  vehicle parked in Upper Gibsons.

I  There was a motor vehicle  accident on Highway 101 near  McCourt Road in West  Sechelt. It appears that a southbound vehicle driven by 22 year  old David Gerald Schafer of  Halfmoon Bay hit a vehicle  driven by 61 year old" Hazel!  May Craig as Craig was enter-^  ing Highway 101 from Mcr!  Court Road. " X  Hazel Craig was taken to SE>  Mary's with a back injury*  whose severity has not yet been-  determined. Schafer was not*  injured. Craig's vehicle wag-  completely demolished ancp  Schafer's vehicle sustained^  $1,000 worth of damages. It is��  not known yet if any charges*  will arise from the accident^  Around Gibsons  Inglis Trail is  a walker's delight  George Cooper  A quiet country path within  minutes of any home in Gibsons links upper and lower  Gibsons and commemorates a  pioneer family, the Inglis's who  knew in those earlier days that  walking was the usual way to  get about the community.  If his bloodstream needs a  stirring up, the walker can  climb the one hundred twenty  makeshift steps from Stewart  Road past the sewage disposal  plant, and then walk at ease on  a firm wide path to Shaw Road  and thence to the shopping centres near the secondary school.  Stately alders - a firewood  cutter's dream - and clumps of  red cedar and a few tall fir with  here salal and there sword fern  and mahonia do truly make  this path the Inglis Park. The  town office will tell the inquirer  the park is not dedicated as  such but that its location on the  high bank of Charman Creek  will not interfere with future  development of the nearby  land into residential lots.  Other walking paths in the  town cross private property  and can be closed at any time,  and to walk on the streets of  Gibsons is a harrying and foot-,  wrenching experience. School.  Road, for example, a well-^,  walked thoroughfare, has aj  roadside that even a mountain:  ungulate would be unwilling to  traverse. -  The Inglis Park trail does not-  appear to be a regularly used"  route to and from schools and  shops, and the accesses do not-  encourage motorcycles but certainly provide a challenge to .  young bicyclists. Still it is good *  to hear children on bicycles::  shouting   happily   to   one  another as they rush by the  walker. Young cyclists   riding  down the steps section of the "'���  trail  must provide entertain-A  ment as well as hazard to the,  walker.  And the walker, pausing at _  the turn of the trail above the'v  sewage plant, can allow himself /"  some waggish speculation on  entertainment of another kind. .  Here he might think, is the site r  for an amphitheatre and below  on a stage set above the churn- ���-  ing reservoir for public meeting ��� ���"  of any one of our local govern- "���  ing bodies when acrid debate '  on  contentious  issues  is  expected.  *j  Prop***y  D  BeginJ immediate* enjoyment of recreationalsjUm-  mer view building lotVnear  secluded beach, Roberts  Greek,"'complete with S/C  Airstream, 27*, 1 bed.  trailer. $45,000.

Send entries to the Coast News, Box 460, Gibsons in time to reach  the newspaper by Saturday of this week. There was no Guess  Where in last week's paper.  TV plan announced  Coast Cable Vision has announced a $250,000 project to  upgrade their Gibsons and  Sechelt cable television  systems.  When completed, the Gibsons and Sechelt systems will  become one system with all  television" and radio signals  originating at antenna sites in  the Sechelt area.  During the past 12 years the  distant signal reliability on the  Sechelt system has been  superior to those same signals  on the Gibsons system and  therefore Gibsons subscribers  will be enjoying, improved  reception at the project completion date which has been  targeted for August 1, 1983.  Intfjjfadition to the improvement^! the overall technical"  operation of the cable system  the upgrade will allow Coast  Cable Vision to offer new  satellite-delivered services and  pay television to their Gibsons  and Sechelt subscribers.   '  Pay televison is scheduled to  be offered from Halfmoon Bay  to Langdale by September 1,  1983 and other satellite-  delivered services such as  ESPN (sports), MTV (music),  CNN (24-hour news), WTBS  (Atlanta superstation), and  WOR (eastern superstation),  will likely be available as early  as January of 1984.  Once the project is completed, the cable systems will be  Timber Days  Parade route  capable of carrying at least 20  television channels instead of  the current 12 channels and will  be designed for eventual two-  way transmission from Gibsons to Sechelt utilizing special  frequencies.  Two-way transmission will  allow the company to introduce  a variety of security and information retrieval services for  most of the Sunshine Coast.  Certain residential areas between Joe Road and the  cemetery, including portions of  the Sunshine Coast Highway,  which are not presently able to  receive cable television will be  serviced as a result of the cable  systems interconnecting.  The project may also mean  that each community will be  able to enjoy two nights of  community programming instead of the present situation  where Sechelt is programmed  on Thursday and Gibson on  Tuesdays only.  The special amplifiers,  which will allow Coast Cable  Vision to tie these two cable  systems together, are spaced at. '  2,000 foot intervals from  Sechelt to Gibsons and are  manufactured in Vancouver by  Century III. Electronics and  represent the latest state-of-  the-art technology available to  the cable television industry,  each Costing in excess of  $2,000.  The Sechelt Timber Days  Parade will be held on Sunday,  May 22, and entrants should be  on the marshalling ground on  Sechelt Indian Band land,  across from St. Mary's  Hospital at 9 a.m. for formation and judging.  The parade will move out at  11 a.m. and follow Highway  101 to Wharf Road, proceed up  Wharf Road to Cowrie Street,  along Cowrie Street to Ocean  Avenue, along Ocean Avenue  to Medusa Street and disband  at Hackett Park.  Everyone is asked to refrain  from parking on Medusa Street  along the north side of Hackett  Park as the parade vehicles  must park there and the May  Queen must officiate from  there. .,  Prizes will be awarded for  entries in a wide variety of  categories for adults and  children. There will be a grand  prize for the best overall float.  Entry forms are available at  Big Mac's Superette on  Highway 101, at Morgan's  Men's Wear on Cowrie Street,  and at J & C Electronics in the  Trail Bay Centre, Sechelt.

I remember being amused  some years ago to hear some  "learned" educators from the  University of Alberta come out  with the hypothesis that  because of the influence of  television we soon will lose the  need to read! Our flourishing  libraries would seem to refute  this argument, as well as the  number of Canadians who are  having books published.  There are no paid librarians  on the Coast; everyone who  works in our community  libraries does so for the love of  it, and some, especially the  librarians and assistant  librarians, may sometimes put  in 20-30 hours per week.  There are many time consuming jobs to be done if your  library is to keep abreast of  community needs. If you  would like to have the library  open on other days or for  longer, perhaps you might consider offering to work at the  desk checking books in and  out. If you have secretarial  skills, there is always typing  and cataloguing to be done.  Libraries would welcome people with a flair for arranging  book displays, usually around  a theme or special event to  brighten up the decor and act  as a focal point to attract interest.  Particularly in the children's  section it is important to keep  up with reviews, to know and  be able to assess the worth of  new books, and to know what  sort of books appeal to different age groups.  Book lovers are a friendly lot  and a library a cheerful place to  work or visit; so, if you're new  to the Coast or find yourself  with a free hour now and then,  why not ask if your library  needs help and join that band  of very special volunteers who  serve the book reading and informational needs of the community.
