V8V 1X4  m^^sm^m&mmsmmsssBm  Liberal joins the race  Vie for local seat  1   For the first time since 1975,  .at least three candidates will be  .seeking to represent the  f Mackenzie riding in the May 5  ���'provincial election. The incumbent, NDP MLA, Don  j Lockstead, will be running in  a his fourth election since 1972  when he defeated Isobel  =powson, who was a member of  ^y.A.C. Bennett's cabinet.  '<? Lockstead, who makes his  <home in Powell River, is the  i&PP transportation critic and  ���is known for his active  representation of the constituency in the legisteture.  ' Also seeking office is Jim  Price, the managing partner of  the Beach Gardens Resort in  Powell River. Mr. Price was  born in Powell River and has  represented the Powell River  economic commission, the  tourist development commission and the Chamber of Commerce. Price, who was  nominated by the Social Credit  constituency association last  fall, has set tip offices in Gibsons arid Sechelt.  The yet-to-be nominated  Liberal candidate is George  Shawi a Powell River  businessman and school trustee  who expects to be officially in  the race this Thursday  Born in New Zealand/Mr.  Shaw has lived ih Powell River  for three years. Shaw is the first  Liberal to run for office in  Mackenzie since 1975  The 1979 provincial election  saw Lockstead run against  socred Gerry Gray, winning,by  nearly two to one majority.  In the three weeks prior to  the election, The Coast News  will publish the candidates'  positions on four election  issues: education - school  board autonomy and teacher  bargaining rights; unemployment and job creation programmes; aids to small  business; and transportation  -ferry service and highways.  To be held on Saturday  Fire vote important  The brief and unseasonal reappearance of winter last Sunday morning was greeted with'delight by  few Of OUr Citizens. -Fran Berger photo  ���Si'  Sechelt gets wharf proposals  'X r  t  Trail Bay, waterfront was  again the focus of considerable  attention at last Wednesday's  Sechelt council meeting.  ;Roy Engineering Ltd.  Ptesented a "Study of Wave,  V^ind and Tidal Action Related  tq Beach Structures" for council's consideration.  : D.J. Roy stated that he was  mostly    concerned    with  'Shoreline processes and erosion", an understanding of  which is essential when designing launch ramps, wharves,  and protective structures. He  also suggested it would be advantageous to have a long-term  plan for waterfront maintenance and enhancement, so  that the village would be able to  make  approved  and  appropriate moves at opportune  times���such as when "public  works" grant monies are  available.  %The Sechelt Chamber of  Beach takes  water plan  to SCRD  C Colin Beach, who has applied for a foreshore lease in  Hotham Sound for the purpose  of developing a water exporting  operationfrom Freil Lake, has  been granted permission to address the Sunshine Coast  Regional District board at the  regular meeting of April 28.  In by-passing its normal  policy of allowing only five  minutes presentation time for  delegations, the board decided  at. last Thursday's meeting that  Mr. Beach's project deserved  mbre time and the meeting: will  bSgin a half hour earlier than  normal, at 7 p.m., in order to  accommodate the presentation.  Board members were adamant, in view of the hour and a  half presentation by ICG Canadian Propane at the last regular  meeting, that the half hour time  limit will be strictly adhered to.  ::The board was also informed  that a news crew from Channel  8 in Vancouver would be covering the presentation by Mr.  Beach. '  Commerce has made inquiries  about the feasibility of wharf  moorage facilities in Trail Bay,  and the village has written to  Small Craft Harbours on the  matter. Should the reply state  that such a,,project would be  feasible, council indicated an  interest in studying Mr. Roy's  report in depth.  A request was also received  from Tyee Fish Charters for  permission to construct a  restricted-use barge loading  ramp on Trail Bay.  They suggested that the ramp  would be used only at high tide  in the early morning and the entrance to the ramp would be  locked at all other times, with  only the village having access.  ,} The importance of the fire  protection referendum to be  held April 16 in Gibsons and  ^Areas^E and F of the regional  district has been emphasized by  /municipal and fire department  -���ipfficials. _. ���%  .X-X Mayor Lorraine Goddard  -hopes that "the voters support  fhe referendum. We are not do-  4*ig this hastily and we believe  *e need it for the good of the  j6re protection district."  7* Alderman Diane Strom, who  sVJrith alderman Bill Edney, is  (Gibsons' representative on the  ^est HowejSound Fire Protection Committee, commented  |hat, "we have been pretty  plucky io, far; ,The equipment  ^an^t^la$t^orevei!. Unless we  *^jkeep up the grading fojfthe fire  department the insurance rates  could', go up. The volunteer  department has done a fantastic job foryears." '  7*  Concern for the firemen was  expressed by Jim Gurney, Area  E director, who noted that the  VFD "is made up of our friends  and neighbours. They put  themselves at considerable risk;  so the community is f esporisi-^  ble for giving theiri the best-  equipment and t>ainiri;i  available." ':':  Mel Buckmaster, fire chief  of the GVFD emphasized that  the main reason'for the new  truck and facility was to maintain fire protection in the area  .;t.  and keep the insurance rates  down.  The old fire hall on North  Road, built by volunteer labour  in 1960 will be demolished and  'the materials used in construction of the new facility next  door to the present location.  The GVFD intend the construction to be a community works  project to give employment to  local workers.  See page nine of this week's  Coast News for details on the  April 16 referendum.

The ramp" to be paid for  ~ solely by the company, would  make a 20 minute trip out of  what is presently a 40 hour trip  up Porpoise Inlet and through  Skookumchuck Narrows. The  company claims a total of 20  jobs would be involved.  Council's concerns were that  the ramp would impede lateral  progress for 100 feet over the  slope pf the beach, and that it  couldn't allow a ramp for the  sole, exclusive use of a commercial firm to be built on  village water lease property.  Local councils give    ]  peace walk support  Members of the Sunshine Coast Peace Committee last  week received unanimous support from both municipal  councils for their efforts to promote local participation in  the "Walk for Peace" being held in Vancouver on April 23.  The resolution unanimously approved read: "The Council of the village of Sechelt/town of Gibsons supports the  concept of the "Walk for'Peace", the efforts of the Sunshine Coast Peace Committee to publicize it, and.encourages citizens to participate."  Members of council and the general public are invited to  the Peace Committee's next meeting on Tuesday, April 19 at  7:30 p.m. in the Creekhouse Restaurant, Roberts Creek.  Woods proposes  theatre festival  A proposal to establish a summer festival of comic *  theatre on the Sunshine Coast will be presented to the  economic   development   commission. and   the  tourism  development committee this week by John Woods of Halfmoon Bay.  Area E to discuss zoning  and fire protection  ���The Elphinstone Electors' Association will meet Wednesday, April 13 at 8 p.m. at the Cedar Grove Elementary  School gyni for a general meeting to review the development  of the settlement plan, discuss the "K" zoning in the area  and to hear information concerning the April 16 referendum  for the West Howe Sound Fire Protection District.  v \  George Hill, right, is pictured with his longtime associate and the new owner of Hill's Machine Shop,  Carl Horner. . ���FraiiBfrger photo  George goes fishing, leaving...  A Hill of a machine shop  by Fran Berger  "From eight in the morning  until five at night, everything  was a challenge," is George  Hill's description of 37 years  operating Hill's Machine Shop  in Gibsons.  "Everything" included the  design and, manufacture of  parts, tools, gizmos, logging  equipment, dozer boats���and  the repair and maintenance of  everything from the Black Ball  ferries to the old Coast News  linotype presses.  "Everything" necessitated a  sound knowledge of welding,  machining, mechanics and  electrical wiring, and a good  imagination to put them all  together into something that  would do whatever job was required.  George Hill came to Canada  from England in 1913 and grew  up in Victoria. He remembers  the saloon days there,���"I used  to bum nickels from the hurdy-  gurdy girls, "he chuckles.  He apprenticed as a  machinist in the capital city,  and eventually -became  foreman at Boyles Brothers  Diamond Drilling in Vancouver, designing and  manufacturing everything  from propellor shafts to mining  and sawmill equipment.  One day in 1946 George took  the Union Steamship to Sechelt  and went up Salmon Inlet for a  little fishing. On his way back  he spent 50 cents on a bus ride  to Gibsons.  "I was ready to get out of the  city, and I liked what I saw,"  said George. Before long Hill's  Machine Shop opened in the  building now housing Al's Used Furniture.  Seven years later a newer,  bigger and more versatile  machine shop was opened at its  present location,  perched  above the sea on Marine Drive.  George Hill has now  retired���with a long list of  things he wants to do, and his  business has been taken over by  his co-worker of the last 13  years, Carl Horner.  "There never was a boss,"  George stated proudly and emphatically. "We worked  together."  Now that he has hung up his  overalls George and his wife  will be moving to Maple Ridge,  finally succumbing to the pleas  of his only daughter and his  three granchildren to live near  them.  And what is George particularly looking forward to in  retirement?  "Going fishing," smiled the  avid fly-fisherman.  Meanwhile back at the  machine shop, Carl Horner will  be designing and welding and  machining and repairing  and...facing the challenges!  ������i' ���',  X     %t:  MM  ifeta Coast News.fApril 11,1983  Loud are the voices raised in protest at any real or imagined threats to democracy from some jurisdiction  other than our own. Strangely silent are we when the institution is threatened from within.  It cannot be said too often or too clearly that the principal threat to democracy is likely to come from those  who profess to practise it. It is meet that we should consider this fundamental heritage as B.C. prepares for a  provincial election.  These are cynical and dangerous times when public  opinion, the heartbeat of democracy, is seen by those in  power not as something to be respected and trusted but  as something to be manipulated and controlled. The  obsession of both parties with their image is indication  enough that we are believed to elect our leaders because  of slick packaging rather than sound planning and wise  " decisions.  If further cause for alarm were needed, we have the  fact that the present government has. not called the  legislature into session for seven months, preferring to  rule by decree rather than parliamentary procedure.  They are at present spending the people's money  without benefit of debate of the people's representatives  in contravention of all parliamentary tradition.  It seems that this election has been called because the  present government daren't seek re-election after the  next budget has been presented and the exercise is  therefore redolent of a dishonest and dangerously  cynical opportunism on the part of those who seek  desperately to retain power at all costs.  If this affront, nay assault, on the democratic tradition is not greeted with a sound defeat at the polls on  May 5 we will know that our most treasured institution is  in very real danger.  Vote 4yes' on  fire referendum  On the surface of it, the West Howe Sound Fire Protection District's proposal to raise $410,000 through taxation on property at a time when every municipal authority  on the Coast is having trouble collecting last year's taxes,  may seem a trifle ambitious. However, as Mayor Goddard has stated, it was not a decision arrived at lightly or  hastily; the need for the new pumper truck and the fire  hall/training facility is well established.  Without these expenditures, the likelihood of the area  receiving a poor fire protection rating from the insurance  underwriters is greatly increased, not to mention the  resulting decline in fire protection in our area. The poor  rating for the area would most likely result in increased  fire insurance rates for every property owner in the fire  protection district. It's a straight forward case of "pay  me now or pay me later".  Reporters from the Coast News chase fire engines all  too frequently and we know what a first class job our  volunteer fire fighters do. If they need better equipment  to protect our homes and businesses, they should get it.  It is up to every property owner in the district to vote  yes on this Saturday's referendum. 'X':X    ���������������*���*<���������������������������������  ...from the files of the COAST NEWS  5 YEARS AGO  At council last week  Sechelt mayor Harold  Nelson presented the  first mayor of Sechelt,  Christine Johnson, with  the Jubilee Medal commemorating the 25th anniversary of the coronation of Queen Elizabeth  I. Mrs. Johnson thanked  the mayor and gave a  complimentary historical speech about the  village.  10 YEARS AGO  At approximately 2  p.m. Wednesday, three  persons in a car running  brakeless drove off the  government wharf in  Gibsons. All three were  rescued quickly and  taken to St. Mary's  Hospital for treatment of  minor injuries.  15 YEARS AGO  The possibility of help  through the Sechelt Indian Band to obtain land  on which to build a new  senior secondary school  in the Sechelt area was  discussed at a special  meeting Monday in  Sechelt. The suggestion  came as the result of  replies to questions  about the location of the  school in Sechelt.  20 YEARS AGO  "People are pretty proud of pur new paved  street running through  the village," Sechelt  councillor Frank Parker  told the village council  at last Wednesday's  meeting. Parker was  referring to the department of highways paving  job on the main highway  which runs through  Sechelt.  25 YEARS AGO  Initial evidence of fish  mortality immediately  following the Ripple  Rock demolition indicates only minor  damage to fish stocks.  Destruction of fish, as  indicated by floating remains, was much  smaller than expected  with fewer than 100 fish  remains found.  30 YEARS AGO  Initial steps were  taken last week by interested Redrooffs property owners to ex-  tablish the "Redrooffs  Beach and Country  Club". A lot has been  purchased and clearing  and grading for a tennis  court will be one of their  first efforts.  35 YEARS AGO  Not   available   this  week.

He made a contemporaneous entry in the Parish Register of the Mission of St. Charles on the  Fraser, an Indian church in New Westminster, to which the Sechelt  Mission was subsidiary. Translated from Father Durieu's original  French the record reads as';follows: "Benediction of Seashell  (variant of Sechelt) cemeteryiThe 15th April 1873,1 the undersigned Vicar General have solemly blessed the cemetery which the  Sechelts have prepared and suitably enclosed about 200 paces to the  east of their church at Chat-ledge (variant of Chat-leech or  Chatelech), blessed the same day.'' SS. Redempteur (Holy  Redemeer) Church, dedicated at the same time, can be seen behind  Our Lady of Lourdes Church^It is the small domed building obser-  viable' just to the left of the cross. Eventually it became the;band.'  meeting hall. Prior to the establishment of the present cemetery the  Sechelts utilized a number of burial grounds, one of them being oh"  Poise Island, which until 1945 was known locally as "Skeleton*  Island" or "Dead Man's Island" or "Cook's Island". In that year  the Canadian Hydrographic Service submitted the new nanje,  "Poise" and regrettably, this became official. When the writer;wgs  a child remnants of human bones and painted boxes surviving'from  tree burials were still observable on the Island. Photo No. 182 by  Charles Bradbury dates from circa 1913-14. His telegraph office  was located just west of the wharf on Trail Bay. Caption by HeleW  Dawe. ��� '���" x';--X:Xx.  Musings  --;  John Burnside  "I'll tell you what most  sticks in my craw about the  Bennett bunch," said my  friend Jake. 1*  I'd walked down the beach in  a rain storm and found hini  seated at his kitchen table  glowering at the weather which  was keeping him from his spring gardening and studying a  recent seed;cataJogue:  !

That can come as  no surprise.  ' 'What gets my dander up is  the underlying contempt for  the people. Mind you, there are  times when I think there's more  likelihood of being off base by  overestimating the ability of'  folk to think than the other;  way. Still I could spit nickels  when I contemplate the  thought processes of those that  do the thinking for our provincial government."  ' 'What exactly doyybu have;  in mind, Jake," saidT, as Jake  ladled out a bowlful of his  splendid homemade soup.      ,;  "It's   these  Flash  Harries-  that  they've  imported from  Ontario to try to give that clod  Bennett some appearance of-  intelligence. It's ?m insult to*  the intelligence of absolutely  everything." ".  "It has seemed to work for  the Conservatives in Ontario  for long enough," I observed  between mouthfuls of Jake's  superb crunchy rolls and the  homely glory of the soup.  "God help us, that's true',  enough," said Jake. "I think  Bill Davis irritates me even  more than Bill Bennett. There  is the suspicion that Davis,  behind the coyly mellifluous  bilge that he utters, actually  does have some intelligence. If  they succeed with Bennett-what  we'll have at the head of affairs  is a flesh and blood Charlie McCarthy, without words or ideas  except what his image-coaches  put there."  "Davis or Bennett, however,  brains or stupidity, it's all an insult to the voters. If the high-  rollers from Ontario are right  that you can market politicians, even politicians as unappetizing as Bill Bennett, the  same way you market dog food  then democracy is dead."  '"The point, damn it," said  Jake", waving'his sbtift ladle;fbr  emphasis, v'iS that if there "is  any hope whatsoever for this  experiment we call democracy  it is that people should be well-  informed and encouraged to  contemplate the issues. When  the best brains in government  are employed not in trying to  find solutions to the real problems of government and society but in trying to dress up such  an obvious nincompoop as Bill  Bennett into something  statesmanlike then what you've  gotis a sick society.  "It's a mark of how much  common sense has been washed  away in the generation since  television brought the image  makers into bur living rooms  on a daily basis that such a dolt  should be where he is at all."  "Come on now, Jake. It  wasn't the image makers that  got Bennett elected in the first  place. It was his daddy's  name."  "I'll grant you that," said  Jake. "And that's very en^-  couraging, isn't it. I mean  Oliver Cromwell's son. had the  same name but when they tried  to fit him for the old man's  shoes he fell on his duff. And  that certainly wasn't the first  time that the son of a notable  man had proved not fit to carry  the old man's coat."  '} "I take it that you won't be  yoting for the return of the  government, then?" said I,  finishing my soup with a sigh  and a discreet burp.  I "It is my considered opi-J  nion," said Jake, ''that none  but the brainless and the brainwashed could vote for the.  return 'of ^ this biinch of incompetents and liars. Those for  whom the act of voting is about  as rational as the passing of  wind. Have some more soup."  The first volley fired by the  premier in the current election  campaign was directed at the  teachers of/the province who  last week, at the Teachers'  Federation annual general  meeting, voted.overwelmingly  to seek to be included in the  labour code as workers. Mr.  Bennett, in response, stated  that he was opposed, to this  move.' because it. would��take  away the "professionalism" of  teachers.  The argument for and  against professionalism, which  arises from time to time, is so  academic and so arcane as to be  worthless as an election issue.  The average voter is not only  not likely to grasp the meaning  of the professionalism argument, but, probably quite  rightly couldn't care less.  As a philosophical issue, best  suited for discussion in staff  rooms, ivory towers and  . obscure: columns in weekly  newspapers however, the issue  of the professionalism or non-  professionalism of school  teachers raises some interesting  questions.  ; First of all, what the premier  meant by the threat to the professionalism of teachers is that  any teacher r who considers  herself a professional 'Would  never go on strike. That is the  essencebf Mr; Bennett'sdefini-  tion - professionals do not  withdraw services/ Profession^ ferry wprkers would ^^  strike; professional insurance  adjusters would not strike; professional muffler men would  not strike, etc.  By any accepted definition  teachers do not fall into the  category of professionals.  They are at best quasi-  professionals. Whether they  should be able to expand their  bargaining rights through inclusion in the labour code or  whether they should be able to  go on strike is quite a separate  issue. It's not nice for teachers  td strike - but their right to  strike has nothing to do with  being professional or not.  On the other hand, the B.C.  Teachers' Federation's argument that teachers should be  considered workers with all of':  the  bargaining  rights pf-  workers, may prove to be a  double-edged sword. Currentfy^  in the province teachers are af-?  forded at least one of the rights r  of the professionals; they ret^iiir '  within very broad guidelines, .  control over their work e'n-ri I  vironment. That is, they main,-/!  tain a'high degree. bf'aea.sioii..  making;autoriomy>: when it?'  comes to what and how to teach '��  their subject matter:  A trained teacher cian quite'^  rightly claim to be the boss iifl  her own classroom. When it,'M  comes to discipline, diagnosis'^  of learning difficulties, subject  matter,  methodology and1'!  evaluation, the teacher is the  decision   maker   in    the  classroom.  This fact stems,,  from both tradition and pracr ^  ticality and is one of the only'  ways in which a school teacher"''  can claim to be different than a?%  'technician or a worker.

Oh, one more comment: the  stench.from those burnt bodies  lasted throughout the camp like  sorne sleepless wandering ghost  for about  three months.  It.  soured the air and seemed lb  taint the food and water; the  very earth. 1 never did become  too comfortable with it. The air  around Roberts Creek smells  mighty fine, the water tastes  clean, and t he eart h of fers us all  life. Why don't we all just do  , our best to keep it that way and  have those tanks moved to",a  location where they will do the  least ppssible harm should the^  blow? .   *      ���"���-   '  .

Will there  bea public meeting on this mat^  ter as-suggested by the regional  district of tfie Sunshine Coast?  We look forward to hearing  from you with regard to this  matter in the near future.  " Jerrie Lou Wickwire  - Secretary, Halfmoon Bay  Recreation Commission  Covering  the Coverage  by Jim Ansell  ; Insuring to Value  *- 1 he obvious reason for insuring to value is that in the  I event of a total loss, you will not come up short on  \'   coverage.  I       The not so obvious reason for insuring to value is the  o   Co-insurance Clause. It is found in almost all residential  :   and commercial fire insurance policies and can limit the  amount payable on a claim.  1       You should, of course, insure to the full amount  '   whenever possible,1 but you must always insure to at  ,'   least the co-insurance limit.  The standard co-insurance clause states that unless  -.   you insure to within 80*70 of the insurable value, (i.e.:  the replacement cost of your home) any claim submitted  can be pro-rated.*  Let's assume that the replacement cost of your home  is $50,000.00. As long as'you insure to at least 80% of  this amount ($40,000.00 or more) any claims will be fully covered up to the amount of the policy. If however,  you only insure for $30,000.00, you would have breached the contract and your claims would only be. 75%  covered (the amount of coverage divided by the  minimum acceptable amount): Not a good situation.  As you can see, insuring to value is extrememly important. Perhaps you should check to see that your present coverage limits are adequate.  :>  If  Sunshine Coast. Insurance Agencies Ltd.

Caldwell, 1  * would like to point out that the  600 people who petitioned to  have the propane tanks  relocated tba safe, uninhabited  area, do not have, the "closed  minds''* alluded to by. Mr.  Caldwell,buthave,quitesimp- ,  ly, MADE UP their.minds on :  this'issue���which is quite a different process.    'pk-V-! -���   <    ' _."  The1 term  "closed mind'.'

Let me assure Mr. Caldwell  , here that ICG propane have;  loudly and persistently bombarded the local residents with  assurancesoftherelativesafcty '  of these tanks so that probably  most of the 600 petitioners had  the benefit of both points of  view before they committed  themselves to their present  position on relocation.  It is also to be hoped that  none of us are forced tb experience a boiling liquid expan-  ding    vapour    explosion  (BLEVE) before being permitted to, take steps^to prevent the  . possibility of one happening in  . our own neighbourhood pr  . anyone else's either.

Tony Greenfield, who is an expert on birds of the Sunshine  Coast will give a talk on Waterfowl at Sargeant Bay. There  will also be a 30 minute film by  Joop Burgerjon on marine life  which shows what'is under the  bay's surface as well as some of  what can be seen on its shore.  The meeting and program are  open to members of the public  who support the objectives of  the society which are mainly to  promote the conservation of^  the natural habitat of Sargeant'  Bay and to act in the interest of  those who wish to enjoy the  rural atmosphere of the bay.  TIMBER DAYS  The Halfmoon Bay recreation commission will be sppn-  soring a bonny local lass for  this year's Timber Days queen.  She is Margaret Connor whom  most of us know as a nice  outgoing gal who will do our  area proud as representative of  our teenagers. The choosing of  queen is of course a team effort  on the part of the teens group  and they will be out in force  selling the 50-50 tickets for  Timber Days. It is mainly the  sale of these tickets which  establishes the winner of the  queen contest, but win or lose,  the girls will all give of their best  V. CECCHI&  E. PETERSON  B.C.

SUCCESSFUL PLANT SALE  - Iri case some, of you are  wondering why the doors were  closed so early last Saturday at  the Welcome Beach plant and  . bake sale, it was apparently  because they; were sold out Very  smartly after the opening.  Generally this sale goes on for  at least a couple of hours, but it  was sold out so quickly that -  there were no plants left after  about 1:30.  NO FLOWER PICKING  A reader "reported annoyance at the fact that people  were picking the dogwood  violets on the walk to Smuggler's Cove. It should perhaps  be pointed out that this is a park  and that it is against the law to  pick flowers therein. Apparently these particular  flowers will not bloom again  once they have been plucked.  Spwhy not leave them there for  t:j ttf&enjoyment of all.

Comments such  as "We cannot stop it so let us  not fool ourselves���the Canadian  government  will  do  whatever the U.S. government  tells it to do," we must riot,  cannot, nor will not, believe to  be true.  There are precedents for  reversing such policies. People,/,  through the ages, have voiced ���  their.outrage and reversed  unacceptable policies. One example is biological warfare and  there have been several others.  One could never pretend it was  easy then, nor will it be easy  now, but it can be done.  One method for reversing  this trend is by huge rallies such  as those happening throughout  the world. These courageous  people and the courageous  media who are covering these  events must not be ignored.  Sunshine Coast residents  have a golden opportunity to  participate by attending the  "Walk for Peace" to be held in  Vancouver on April, 23.; This  "Walk for Peace''assembles'at  noon at KitsilanoPark and the  rally will' begin;'at-2 p.m. at  Sunset Beach. '.;  "\: y:.X ;;  Another method, anda;  lasting one, for expressing oAir  disapproval, is for us to refuse  to have our personal inrjome  tax used for murder. A Peace  Tax Fund Committee has been  '.,.(established, in .Victoria, B;C.  where we may learn how this  can be done. The address there  is: Peace Tax Fund Committee,  514-620 View Street, Victoria,  B.C.  . xxx- '��� .   Xx  X Edith Adamsoh, founder of  >this movement, is presently on  > a cross-country speaking tour,  ^encouraging Canadians to exercise their rights acfiordjirfg tb  puir: Charter of Rights and  Freedoms. Edith Adamson  could   be  our   Canadian  counterpart of Dr. Helen  Caldicott. Edith is an excellent  speaker, has degrees in library  sciences and is very personable.

"Walk'for Peace": We intend   l  to take advantage of this very  generous offer.  ' At the town of Gibson's  council meeting .on Tuesday,  approval was given for the support of the town of Gibsons for  the "Walk for Peace", and. on  Wednesday, the village of  Sechelt council gave its support  as well.  The next Sunshine Coast  Consumers' Association  meeting will be held on April 15  at 2 p.m. in the community services office on Cowrie Street in  Sechelt.

He is a world  traveller, 'lecturer, fisherman  and marine painter who once  buHtiurSO-foot raft with intentions of crossing the Pacific.  Ironically enough (and quite >  unlike his crafty employer)  Bird has never dabbled in crime ���  of any sort nor served the consequences. He is content to go  along with Herb's self-serving  schemes at this point but over  20 years later, he will look back  on the whole business with a  rather jaundiced eye.  f TT^ere .\yasn 't toomuch t hat  ags'genuiriein that place.

H��  bought it only a week earlier al  a hardware store .across town.  It was never used to hang  anyone.  The waxworks? They were  done by a Swede called Ole  'Holmsten. He was an excellent  sculptor who apparently had  quite a reputation in Europe. I  think he answered an ad that  Herb  ran  in   the  paper.  ,  Anyhow, those figures he did  ' looked just Iijb'real people. I  gave him a prgss clipping of Al  "Capone and from that he did  ' the head,'life-size. It was exactly  like" the. photograph.  However, I don't believe he  ever got a cent for all the work  he did. I heard them quarrelling  one day. Ole was pleading that  he had to have money for  groceries. Herb never gave him  anything. That's the kind of  cheapskate he was.  "Now you take those paintings on> the wall. He told  everybody that they were his  and he fooled me too. After  awhile, he put one in there on  an easel, partly done. It was the  Prince of Wales' ranch in  Alberta. He claimed he had  been, commissioned to do it by  the prince himself.  But it  always sat in the same place and  nothing was ever added to it.  No wonder. I didn't find Out  until years later that they were  all actually done by Herb's  wife, Amelia. He had simply  painted out her signature. He  had no scruples at all about that  sort of thing. Herb had to be  the centre of attention at any  cost. I'm not a bad painter  myself but he wouldn't permit  me to show any of my own  work/I guess he, figured it  might draw attention away  from him."

Familial outings are particularly pleasurable. Health and  vitality return after winter run  of flu viruses.  ARIES (Mar. 21-Apr. 19)  Energy blockages disappear  and you "get your trip'  together". Your feminine, nurturing, receptive energy (often  hidden) is high and you are able  to help people with less clarity  without becoming ensnared in  . their depressions or vileness.  TAURUS (Apr. 20-May 20)  The behavioural psychologist in you predominates as you  cast a disturbingly knowing eye  at other people's melodramas  and motivations. If a writer,  you can .describe this in a-way  that captures audience and puts  them in your characters' shoes.  Solitude is special. '.  GEMINI (May 21-June 21)  Frjends and guides help you  to learn to deal with periods of  self doubt and distrust. You  understand love but may not .  feel it, even for self. Cultivate  acceptance and steadfastness.  Realization of material dream  draws near.  CANCER (June 22-July 22)  You are the alchemist mixing  potions-to bring fulfillment in  every area of life. Disgruntle-  ment occurs when you pent up  inspirational talents or shower,  them upon unreceptive audiences. Psychic projection  ���and creative visualization pave  path to resolution.  LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)  Sometimes generosity of  spirit is overdone and begets insolence from recipients.

To  f correct mistakes of the past, it  {' is better to expend toomuch ef-  fort than too little. Find roots  ." in gehtle, loving friendships.  Material prospects improve. .  SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-  Dec.21)  It gets lonely at the top.  Distaste for sharing burdens  and failures can bring  unhealthy isolation. Joining a  men's or women's growth  group could be excellent-^here  and now, not when traveling  sometime!  CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-  Jaml?)  A foundational cycle is com--  pleted but then you feel an alienv  , iri a foreigrUand.Speaking but  may seem impudent and in- X  suiting.

As i  registered they asked me when was the lasftime I had  been in a hospital. I couldn't remember, so in that  regard I consider myself most fortunate. But while at  St. Mary's I renewed acquaintance wjth some real old-  timers who are in hospital on extended care.  One of several people llmet was James Dowdie,  whom I hadn't, seen in fa long/ long time. He  remembered -me well,, with such comments  as,���"Whose running the store, Bill?" and, "Whose going to write your column this-week?"  As f assured him 1 would be out in time to write it  myself, he asked would I please write about the  hospital and the good nurses at St. Mary's. Of course,  this is something XXanx more than pleased to do  because I too Was the recipient of excellent care and  attention. The dietician and staff must also be given  credit for serving a good variety of tasty and  nourishing food. Alderman Harvey Bist of Sechelt was  in while 1 was there, and we were both in agreement  that the food served was very good.  They do heed more space, and more beds. I am sure,  for they frequently are out of beds and have to use the  day care centre when wards are fully occupied.  Once again, may I extend my sincere thanks and appreciation to the doctors and staff including the  physiotherapist who pummelled me painfully and with  apologies while forcing me to cough up and clear my  lungs.

It was  there on the surf-swept beach  that he learned about the real  world of ^marine biology���so  often different from that found  in the text books. Quickly he  had to learn how to deal with  hundreds of people who: visit  the park each day and how,to  teach them to enjoy aricLnot  destroy the natural wonderVto  be found there. %  Campbell related how he and  two; other naturalistsv were  dropped off on a remote island  on the West Coast to cariy but a  study of sea birds nesting there.  Due to some mishap their food  supplies did hot arrive fbrcjuite  a few days so they spph found  out how important the beach  can be as a source of nourishing  food.

Iff you are a ratepayer off  Electoral Area "F" ���  Langdale Elementary School      (Johnson Road)  The Fire Protection Referendum of April 16th,  1983 is a good example of joint co-operation by  members of the Gibsons' Town Council and  Regional Board. Working closely together under the  chairmanship of Mrs. Sheila Kitson of the West  Howe Sound Fire Protection District jn co-operation  with the Gibsons Fire Department, they have been  able to foresee the growing need of improving the  fire service for the Town of Gibsons and the growing  Regional Areas "E" and "F".  The referendum covers the purchase of a larger  pumper truck ($160,000) and amalgamated Fire-  hall/Training Facility ($250,000), totalling $410,000.  This move should also stabilize fire insurance rates  on businesses and residences within the combined  districts, and will also satisfy basic recommendations of the Fire Commissioner's Office; of utmost  importance is the improved response to all areas.  It is noteworthy to the public that two pumpers  have virtually reached their limit in cost-  effectiveness and reliability; one pumper is now 16  years old and the other not far behind at 13 years  old. The original hall on Gower Point Road was opened in 1951 and built by volunteer labour and donated  material under guidance of Chief Wilf Grey, Assistant Chief Eric Inglis, and. Dick Fitchett. It has been  expanded twice and must now hold thirty current  members. The "upper" or Regional Hall was built  by volunteer labour and material in October 1959 and  acts as a "garage" for one pumper and a tanker but  has no facilities for people. The cost of operating  two buildings is also a problem.  &&���&������ .-.'������>"���'��� ���:-*������ -������ ���      - *<-y  The Gibsons Firemen are "unpaid", or, strictly  volunteer. Because of this factor and minimum  facilities, the area has enjoyed the lowest cost or  mill rate of any fire service on the Sunshine Coast  for many years. Even with an approved referendum  the cost to taxpayers in the District should still be  below or at par with other fire areas even with an improved department. The additional cost per taxpayer  should approximate $20.39 average, or at most, not  exceed $25.00 per $100,000 assessed value (per  year). This will probably be offset to the property  owner by maintaining existing insurance rates instead of threatened increases.  The public can best show their appreciation of the  joint effort put forth by the Town Council, Regional  Board, and the Gibsons Fire Department by supporting the referendum on April 16th.

Now it is  flime to talk about planting the  fpeerjlings that have grown or  ftho$e you have bought from  jyour local nursery.  pTranisplanting is a most im-  ^rtant step; without the preconditions; your seedlings  .,/on't make it-'and if they do,  Pp'W grow poorly. The first  ifbing to do is plan the position  c^your plants; if you are planting] in rows, mark them with a  ��*$Mg^if you;;are using conifers or: raised1>eds, work out  ^niany plants will comfor-  b1j|fitjin]the;given area. You  tf$|leaiyev enough space for  l^plaflt to spread to its max-  ijfium growth.  |j When planting seedlings,  fjait for an overcast day, or go  J work in the late afternoon  [hen the mid-day heat has  jassed. The soil should be  "amp, but not soaking wet, the  lace where the plants are to regain should have been dug  ,>jver, and any additions of  fpmpost; manure, limestone,  !&. should have been made,  e area should be free of rocks  id weeds. Make a hole with a  iwel, deep enough to accom-  date the roots comfortably.  ie|��bbt?ball must not be   ashi^ into the hole; constricted roots find it difficult to  reach water and nutrients in the  |c^l. Once the seedling is in the  mH,. press firmly, so that the  its and the soil have max-  ���jm contact; The seedling  slipuld not move around if you  #|11 ori it. Wheri the planting is  <��mplete, water thoroughly,  *'J ? make sure the rows are  Club  ; by Jack MacLeod  The April meeting of the  club fell into three  ts; first a series of slides  }|de :by the B.C.

The list of flowers .  )Wn in pots included schizan-  ,'   (a\\ splendidTslidwing in  itchart Gardens), impatients,  pjtnsies, petunias, geraniums  ) aind a host of others::.  ��� ^Plants in containers need  mpre care than flowers grown  inj the; garden soil, especially  - more frequent waterings as the  containers can dry out quickly,  a^d more so if the soil level is  even with the edge of the pot so  thjb.water runs over the side.  Fertilizers such as 20-20-20 are  required for good results.

Seedlings that may be  planted outside now include  broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower,  kohlrabi, leeks and lettuce.  Onions and potatoes should be  planted now, and seeds of turnips, beets, lettuce, carrots,  chard, spinach and radishes.  Don't sow too thickly and  carefully read the directions on  the seed package for depth of  planting.  ,,. Onions are art easy, crop to  jrow; setsvare^easy^P handle  and produce! seallions fairly  quickly. Choose small bulbs,  about Vz inch in diameter;  make sure they are not dried  out or sprouted. The soil where  they are to grow should be loose  ,   and soft, with readily available  �� nutrients in a small area, since  onions have relatively shallow  ��� roots. They require plenty of  Coast News, April 11,1983  moisture and good drainage so,  a soil rich in humus content is .  ideal.

A large contingent from  Sechelt will be attending the  World Scouting Jamboree in  Alberta this summer, joining  about 13,000 boys from 150  countries for nine days of  scouting activities.  Seven Venturers���David  Chappell, Kirk Grady, Mark  Karpenko, Loney Ziakris,  Gordon Keays and Joe and  Todd Jacques, and a Scout,  Jeff Foxall, will accompany  Venturer advisor Joe Mellis on  a train trip to Kananaskis,  Alberta where the jamboree  will be held July 4-12.  Of the 13,000 boys attending  the event, the last world jamboree to be held in North  America until the year 2000,  about 4,000 will come from  Canada, another 4,000 from'  the United States, with the  balance coming from the approximately 150 countries that  have scouting programmes.  In addition to attending the.  jamboree, the Sechelt group  . will spend a day at the Calgary  Stampede and another day in  Banff.      -.-  Although the district council  'is providing $600 to defray  some, of the costs, each boy  hopes to earn at least one third  of the money needed; for the  trip, which is estimated to cost  between $550 and $600 per person.  The boys are eager to find,  part-time jobs to earn money  for the trip. If you have jobs  that are suitable for boys betT  ween 14 and 17 years of age, -  please contact the Venturer advisor, Joe Mellis, at 885-2487.  A letter from local residents  expressing concern at:; the  behaviour of party gberisat  Shoal Lookout was received at  a recent Gibsons council  meeting. Describing ' 'long hot  summer nights punctuated by  screaming tires, blasting  stereos, smashing bottles/four  letter ���obscenities and threats"  local homeowners asked council to construct curbing sections  and replace defaced signs in an  effort to control the rowdyism.  Council agreed to comply with  these requests.  . A request from the Cedaris  Inn for a change in operating  to noise  hours was recently turned  down by Gibsons council.  Alderman Strom who moved  the motion to reject the application, told the Coast News  that she felt that as the license  has been granted originally for  a neighbourhood pub that concept should be adhered to. She  felt the change of hours from 10  a.m.-12 p.m. to 11 a.m.-l a.m.  was unfair to the people of the  area. A letter from the  R.C.M.P. stated that they did^  not foresee any increase iri lavif  enforcement difficulties with  the re-scheduling of the hours. r  Spring  \\   / .o  v.v / OL. 2019  BUCCANEER  BAY  Sr/fA/r   OF GEORGIA  THE  GAP  ( THQRMAWBY  J     <=  fr.

It makes a nice soun-  ' rjing simile, but I suspect that as  'oJie of the "I'd rather be dead  -thari Red" fraternity he's try^  '(jig to persuade himself that  "peacemarchers have no influence.  I^FJor an advocate of  ^yerydne's democratic right to  ^.ree speech and who en7  courages those with an opinion  to write their council, school  vbqard or member of parliament, it hardly makes sense tb  (downgrade peaceable street  demonstrations. Peace marches are, after all, the logical  extension of, and visible embodiment of all those letters  which we've written to politicians. Letters, while always important and worthwhile, take  on an added importance when  supported by thousands of people gathered in support of a  cause.  ;7* There's nothing wrong with  "I'd rather be dead than Red"  as a personal philosophy, from  time immemorial it has been  considered honourable to fall  'on your sword rather than  lower your principles, but it's  hardly a philosophy which can  tie imposed on society. Warfare, and nuclear warfare in  particular, is no respecter of  persons; there'll be little chance  to opt out.  '* I don't buy that other argument either that, because the  Russians aren't able to mount  similar demonstations, we in  democratic countries who have  the freedom to tell our government we want them to negotiate  for peace and for a future for  the human race should sit idly  by on the sidelines and contemplate our navels while  waiting for the bombto.4rop.,  ��. Doesn't the very fact that we  have such freedom make it incumbent upon us to voice our  opinions, not only on our own  if-    :..���;. . i    '.  *-.'-"���-  b   ������ ���   -  behalf but for all people?  Freedom confers responsibility. Surely we don't really  believe the ordinary Russian in  the street is any different from  ourselves, that Ivan and Ilenka  don't have the same desire to  see a world safe for their  children too? The Russians  who have had two world wars  fought on their soil in this century; and have lost whole  generations of their young men  killed in battle can have little  desire for further heroics  whatever their leaders' rhetoric  or sabre-rattling/.  Last year's peace march in  Vancouver brought people  together from across the province, south of the border and  from all walks of life. Somany  people from babies-in-arms to  great grandparents that the  head of the parade which  wound its way six abreast  across Burrard bridge, north  on Burrard to Georgia, along  Georgia to Howe then back  south, had reached Sunset  Beach before the last marchers  had left Kitsilano Park:  This year a contingent will go  from the Sunshine Coast with  our own banners. Transportation either by bus or car pool  will be arranged. XXx.  Take a day off and join us,  get to know your neighbours  and demonstrate your belief  that there is a future for the  human race and that we're intelligent enough not to annihilate ourselves.

Crute comments that "Gandhi  was too much of a dreamer to  ever realize a practical  solution...". That Gandhi's  example and unique contribution be so glibly dismissed is sad  and demonstrates the inability  to examine events other than in  pragmatic, cause and effect  relations.  Gandhi was not a politician  with a five year plan to achieve  predetermined objectives. He  was an individual who believed  completely in a way of thinking  and acting which superceded  traditional boundaries of  political and social values.  He offered his thoughts and  his life as examples and in so  doing affected the lives of  millions. His only "weapon"  was the invitation to share in his  belief in non-violence as a potent force for personal and  social change.  That this be perceived as the  thinking of a' 'dreamer' 'shows  to what extent such evaluation  falls short in examining the  dynamisms of personal growth  and social progress.  M. Burns  Irvine's Landing shock  Editor,  I was shocked to read in the  April 4 Coast News that the Irvine's Landing Community  Hall is closed. I was thinking of  all the hard work that a few  older people put into it and they  didn't do it just for themselves,  they did it for the community,  something nice for the younger  people to have. They also got  government grants to help pay  for renovations, "flrhis, to be  gohe'sb sddh!^   '^ ""      /'".'.  I have served, off and on, for  a period of 12 years on the community club executive here.  Most of the older neighbours  have done the same. Most, of  the older neighbours had more  children than the modern ones  have and they did not have the  time-saving appliances that are  in use now, still, they managed.  When I was a child they  taught me a rhyme, "Take,  take, take, and never give; is  that the/way for me to live?"  Are allthe community clubs to  be closed dowrr because of  "Take, take, take"?

Tank leak  reported  A Roberts Creek resident  reported a "small explosion  and hissing sound" at the ICG  Canadian Propane tank site in  the Creek Tuesday. The witness  said it appeared that a short  flexible connector in the  loading pipe between the dock  and the land fill area burst spilling a small quantity of propane  still in the pipe onto the water  below.  Jim Tait, ICG branch  manager, confirmed that a  hose did break, possibly as a  result of vibrations from a  loading operation the day  before. Tait told the Coast  News that a small quantity of  propane, "perhaps three or  four gallons" escaped from the  pipe but under these conditions  said Tait, the propane would���  instantly vaporize Jand would  dissipate before hitting the  water. He said there was no  possible danger from the incident, the only one of its kind to  occur at the Roberts Creek site.

The best news at flast  Wednesday's Sechelt council  meeting was that :the  municipality has finally learned the amount of its 1983 unconditional revenue sharing  grant from the Provincial  Department of Municipa^Af-  fairs. :.y  The grant is in the amount of  $48,364, approximately $3,000  more than last year, and is in  addition to the basic revenue  grant of $30,000 received by all  municipalities. _    M  Now that the; amount* of  direct provincial ^raritsf is  known, the village can~prb;ceed  with the firializatipnx>fJts;if83  budget, whiehfmust be-apprpv-  ed by May 15, and which is  restricted to a^jwimum 5j|)er  cent increase bVe^l9JB2^exptn-  ditures, as agreed by the Umpn  of British Columbia7 Municipalities. ���;. : XX--XX>t: nx;.  The Finance Committee  must then proceed onvthfe baisis  of proposed property ;%lx  reforms which were ajihouheed  by Finance Minister Hugh Curtis and Municipal Affairs  Minister Jack Heinrichy&n  March 18, and establish a  ('variable tax rate" syVtem  which is tp replace the  rate" system. If  The tax base on which  "variable tax rates" will beap-  plied will be the "actual value"  of a property j not an assessed  value. The municipality' must  set a tax percentage rate for  each of nine classifications of  property, and taxes will then be  described in "dollars per  $1,000 of actual value". 'XlX  "I guess we'll bethe bad guys  now, "commented alderman  Ken Short7 referring to thetfact  that it would now be /the  municipality settingthe tax rate  rather than the provii  government determining a mill  rate.  However,  Mayor George  Thorn of Kitimat, president of  ���'] the Union of B.C.  Munici-  ; palities, cautioned in a recent  press  release  that   while  municipalities issue the tax  notices and collect the taxes,  less than half the amount  ���X: shown on these notices is  directly under local council's  control.  In  1982 the amount  'X was only 45 per cent of the total  ���X property taxes levied* with the  - ;; remainder being collected for  'education costs and other uses  I ��� oyer which municipal councils  :Vhave no control whatsoever. ���,:''���  .   '   "When the taxpayer gets his  v tax notice and reads the bottom  X line," said Thorn, "he should  be aware that only a portion of  his total tax bill is the responsibility of his local municipal  X council,:and only that portion  ."���is affected by the new variable  tax rate system."  In Mayor Thorn's opinion  the variable tax rate system,  - which the UBCM has been  "' strongly advocating,  should  ''result in  more stable and  -^predictable property taxation  < .than we have seen for years".  ,'  The only fly in the ointment  v"is the fact that the new property  ' tax reform legislation has never'  been passed, the legislature has  ���not    been    sitting    since  -December. With au election in  the offing such passage will be  ' further delayed,  and  conceivably  may  never occur  should there be a change of  government.  ���   However   village   clerk  - Malcolm Shanks says the  village  must  proceed   with  , preparing its budget and its tax  - rolls, and therefore the variable  tax rate system, as per provincial  instructions,  will  be the  system now employed.  Sechelt seeks  crown grants  Sechelt village council will be  examining the possibility of^he  development of lots 1 jarid l^bf  District Lot 1471 for the7jp1if-  pose-oTa h4uHieipal-ffitrr3ii��  home park.; ^   'X^xxrxyx^X  Larry Sorken, District Lane]  Manager in the���, mmistryXf)f  lands, parks and housirtg^  noted in ;a ������ recent letterltb  Sechelt^C cIirlc-treasurM|  Malcolm Shanks that the twoT  five-acre parcels ''will ;;be  available'for'development ori��e  the timber is removed"      ^  The province makes land  available to local govenments  as free crowirgrants for parks  purposes;   \\ i  "However^" Sbrken's letter  adds, "land for development is  sold at market value or  developed by the local goven-  ment through a crown laiid  agreement."  Shanks told the Coast News  the only mobile home park.in  the village is full; and if the  crown land could be gained by  the village for such a purpose-it  could then become a source pf  municipal revenue. WTvi  The village will also be applying to have district Lot 1646  removed from the agricultural  land reserve and given as a free  jerown grant to the village for  par ks,purposes.      .    ,     ,  LET THE  SUnftSHHHg  Ii\  7 A  We sell  and install  a wide variety  of skylights  Call us  Today!
