Proposed reductions are said to  mean a 30 per cent reduction in  Chinook salmon catch, 25 per cent  in the Cohoe catch, 18-20 per cent  in the non-Fraser River wild chum  catch, and a 40 per cent reduction;  "w^^evm yearpirik^atchM^ 'vV^  Progressive Conservative - candidate Hicks was touring the riding  in his campaign bus when he spoke  to the Coast News last week. He  said that 500 fishermen had joined  ��� the party to ensure his nomination.  Hicks said that he had a five-  point program which he would  urge the Progressive Conservatives  to adopt. His points were: ensure  no further intentional habitat  destruction; clean up of all creeks .  and rivers in B.C.; enhance  through small stream enhancement  all streams and rivers in spring,  sockeye and coho; curtail offshore  fishing of foreign fleets; restructuring of fisheries management so that  the industry manages the industry;;:  Describing Hick's . program as'.:  essentially being for motherhood X  .

In  fact,   their   spokesman,   John  Fraser is saying nothing about the  ���issue." -X  .'���'X The NDP MP said that it seemed  possible that present salmon  ^hancement could be releasing a  genetic, time bomb since the large  jSalmon fry released by the hatcheries were eating the wild stock!

Packers control of the  fishing industry.  The future of the fishing industry is crucial to life on the coast  and the stage seems set for a most  important meeting this week.  Problems with a sewer line  hookup at the Uptown Motel on  North Road caused acrimonious  discussion at Gibsons council  meeting last week. The problem  arose when an incorrect contract  with the town of Gibsons was inadvertently signed by the motel  owners, Mr. and Mrs. R. O'Con-  nell allowing a sewer pipe to be installed connecting a property next  door to theirs with their own line.  It was the easiest way to deal  with a septic tank odour problem  'which the O'ConnelPs claimed was  affecting their business. One hundred feet of line was put in and the  error in the contract was only then  discovered by municipal staff.  Mr. O'Conriell did not wish to  sign an easement contract which he  felt was giving away ownership of  $25,000 worth of trailer ground  equipment which was part of the  easement area.  Alderman   Jack   Marshall   explained to the Coast News that it  was necessary for the town to ob-  . tain an easement in order to adequately maintain the line.  A stalemate developed over the  past few months with both sides clinging to their positions. Since the  initial error was made by a  municipal staff member, Alderman  Burnside felt "Council should go  through the whole thing from the  start and remove the bitterness and  ill-will: they are good taxpayers  who are mad at the town they've  lived in for years."  Mayor Labonte felt council  should not create a precedent by  agreeing to the O'Connell's demand of $150 per year for having  the sewer line on their property,  and advised that expropriation or  taking the sewer line right round  the property, might be solutions.  Alderman Burnside suggested  that, there might be no need to  worry about precedenceMf council  conducted its affairs with more  precision ' and worried that a  "hard-line approach" to the problem was emerging.  Alderman Edney objected to  Alderman Burnside's "heavy  criticism" of council, although he  conceded that council "was  responsible for the actions of  staff."  It appears that a possible solution was arrived at at last Thursday's c"Dffl!~*rfttee meeting of council. AMerman Bumafde told the  Coast News that A proposal is being drawn up and he is "very optimistic the whole thing can be  resolved without further fuss".  By-law  sent back  A by-law which will raise water-  frontage tax by 50 per cent was ,  tabled at last Tuesday's Gibsons  council meeting after it was  discovered that council members  had not had a chance to review the  by-law.  Waterfrontage tax has not been  raised since 1975 and the increase  would raise the amount paid from  $12-24 to $18-36 per year depen- "'  ding on the width of the lot. The  increase is necessary to help pay for  amortization of debt.  The matter was discussed at a  council committee meeting on  Thursday where council members  expressed concern that by-laws  were brought to a council meeting  before they had been discussed in  committee. It was decided that a  critical eye had to be cast over the \  way things used to be done.  "There is enough evidence to  show there were problems with the  way things were done in the past,"  Alderman Burnside told the Coast  News.  Although an argument advanced  for the necessity of passing the bylaw, at Tuesday's council meeting...,  was to speed its passage to Victoria, it was later discovered that  this type of by-law does not need  Victoria's approval.  iSave the beach committee ensures  Beach controversy still rages  t*  ���,r]-A group of local residents from  (he Franklin Road area of Atlee's  t>each appeared at the last meeting  of Gibsons council to support their  letter requesting the new council to  make known its stand on the rock  Wall trespass on the beach.  CThe problem began in May of  1982 when two residents had rip-  rj*tp retaining walls constructed to  protect their properties from erosion. At the time no municipal bylaw covered that type of construction so no survey of property lines  was made by the contractor.  ���'When complaints by residents  and users of the beach about un-  sightliness, and difficulties of access to the beach caused council to  order a survey, it was discovered  that the rocks trespassed by nine  feet onto crown land.  The problem has generated continuing controversy since then,  with the then council reluctant to  order removal of the rocks which  form the trespass because of the  expense which would be incurred  by the owners. Users of the beach  wish to preserve the pleasant pebble swimming beach in its original  state and point to Sechelt beach as  an example of a now destroyed,  once pleasant asset to the community.  The latest news that council had  from the provincial government on  the matter was that the beach  would be inspected in the spring to  determine if winter storms had  caused the walls to shift. Alderman  Burnside stated that he was "concerned about the principle involved. The issue is more than whether  the rocks have moved. Council  must object to encroachment on a  public beach."  Administrator Lorraine , Goddard explained that "as lessees it is  our responsibility to police the  removal of the walls and we are  prepared to do this." There was  some confusion as to whether the  government had switched its  original   position   giving   council  power to order removal of the  rocks.  This led Alderman Burnside to  table his original motion���"to  write to the Ministry of Lands,  Parks and Housing to say that in  our view the first position was the  best position" until the correspondence from Lands could be  examined.  Representatives of the "Save the  Beach" committee addressed  council at the end of the meeting  pleading with them to take action  on the matter and wondering why  the responsibilities of the contractor had not been mentioned in the  discussion.  Marina meeting  The public information meeting on the Gibsons marina is  scheduled for 7:30 p.m., Tuesday, January 24, in the Gibsons  Council Chambers.  Members of council will be on hand along with the developers to  answer questions from the public.  Tax interest  Gibsons council is encouraging its taxpayers to pre-pay their  taxes and earn themselves nine per cent interest on their investment.  By-law 482, allowing council to do this, was passed at last week's  council meeting.  Alderman Edney explained how pre-payment would help the  town. "We have to borrow money at a substantial rate until taxes  are paid. This way people earn extra interest and save the  municipality money."  Dollars for scholars  Students in grades 11 and 12 at Chatelech Secondary School, and  their parents are reminded that there is a meeting tonight, January  23, at 7:30 p.m. in the music room to provide information on  financial assistance available for further education.  Principal June Maynard says there is "lots of money available  for students who graduate," and encourages both students and  parents to come and explore the possibilities.  Information will also be given on government scholarships and  the recently instituted provincial government examinations.  Pender dock sought  M; The Arthur Way Docking Society made a presentation to the  regional district, planning committee last week in support of its application to build a community  wharf in Pender Harbour.  > Six residents of Arthur Way, a  waterfront road one mile up Francis Peninsula Road from Highway  101, wish to build a four-foot wide  walkway from the foot of the present 66-foot wide beach access road  out to the low tide mark, and from  that extend a 40-foot floating tidal  ramp at the end of which would be  % two or three finger dock. The  d( k Would provide moorage for.  thj sbtM residents' boats plus one  public ''space for access to the  shore; MM'  rThe ^docking society would  assume all costs for construction  and maintenance of the dock, and  w0uld also;carry public liability insurance on it. No boat houses and  no live-aboards would be allowed.  M.Mr. Datyid Mah, spokesman for  tie AWDS, noted that the beach at  tn'e foot of the access was steep and  rocky, and not good for either  recreational purposes or. for  oysters. He added that there would  be no need for a parking area for  the dock, as all members live  within easy walking distance.  Mah also stressed that the dock  would not block access to any of  the private floats already in the  bay.  The SCRD planning committee  recommended that a meeting be arranged with the society and the  various agencies involved, as well  as those with objections, to determine the feasibility of the Arthur  Way Dock.  Planning input?  The Sunshine Coast Regional  District has received "a golden opportunity" to have input into proposed planning legislation.  The law firm of MacKenzie  Lidstone has been appointed by the  provincial crown to prepare recommendations for legislation, and has  invited representatives of the  regional board to a meeting on  February 3 "to present your  recommendations for revisions to  Part 21 of the existing Municipal  Act and your comments, pro or  con, regarding what was known as  "Bill 72" of the 1982 session of the  legislative assembly. ...the writer  will take your recommendations to  the minister."  Part 21 of the Municipal Act  deals with such various matters as  planning, zoning, sub-division, 5  per cent park dedications, the advisory planning commission,  technical planning committee and  the building code.  Regional directors were  delighted to have this opportunity  to make their views known, and  will be calling a special meeting to  consolidate their, concerns.  Mayor Labonte was on hand to help kick off the 32nd Annual Kinsmen Mothers' March Campaign  for the Gibsons area. District Mothers' March chairman, Ray DeGraff (on left) with the aide of  Kinsman Clay Carby, who will be canvassing the town's business areas, hold the Kinsmen Rehabilitation Foundation banner which will be displayed in the Sunnycrest Mall to promote the March.  -John Burnside phojo 2.  Coast News, January 23,1984  enemy  It may yet be said of Pierre Elliot Trudeau that nothing so  became his stewardship of this country than his final months.  Certainly Trudeau's much publicized peace initiative has caused,  more international leaders to speak up against the monstrous  madness of the nuclear arms race.  One of the most distressing aspects of the whole situation is  the fear that still governs the thinking of many when they contemplate the possibility of nuclear disarmament. Alarmed by  fanatical figures on television, many otherwise reasonable men  become totally irrational on the subject. To be in favour of  disarmament in some minds is tantamount to being an atheistic,  anti-democratic communist.  Those involved in the peace movement must be prepared for  irrational, attacks and semi-hysterical suspicion. As Franklin  Roosevelt first said and John Kennedy repeated, we have  nothing to fear but fear itself. And the most dangerous kind of  fear lurks in the breasts of those who are most emphatically  against the peace movement. We must overcome it.  A World View  The donation of $100 by Gibsons council to help sponsor two  local residents as part of a B.C. volunteer aid group to  Nicaragua is causing controversy in the community. Some taxpayers feel that such moneys should be given only for local use.  We should consider that we are part of a much wider community. "No man is an island unto himself," said John Donne  in contemplating the human condition, and no community on  the North American continent can any longer feel isolated from  any other.  If the powder keg of Central America were to erupt into a  conflict between the major powers we know that no area of this  continent would escape unscathed.  Nuclear weapons have made us all part of the global village.  If sending a group of volunteers from Canada to work next to,  the Nicaraguan in his field will help defuse this potentially explosive situation, $100 seems little enough to pay.  As Alderman Neilson, in bringing the matter before council  stated, "the Nicaraguan people are doing their utmost to avoid  military intervention by the U.S.; if we shut down contacts with  them we can't complain if they go elsewhere for help."  Pierre Trudeau's peace initiative has focussed world attention  on Canada's possible role as a peacemaker in international affairs. The support given by local organizations to the aid for  Nicaragua project can only strengthen Canada's potential as a  force for peace in the world.  Gibsons council is to be commended for linking Gibsons to a  wider world community by its donation.  A hectic -week  What a week this has been for news stories. It seems that just  about everybody on the Sunshine Coast was up to something  this week.  It causes headaches for editors of small town newspapers  when an avalanche of activity takes place. But in the middle of  January and still enmired in the worst economic recession for  half a century such an outpouring of activity surely harbingers  well for an active and interesting year.  Now if we could just get some of those pent-up dollars cut  loose and circulating locally we could all start smiling again.  Meanwhile if your favourite news; item "didn't get in this' week;  forgive us.

Almost anyone who has attended school knows that the Hudson's  Bay Company has dominated the fur trade across northern North  America during the past 300 years. Existence of the fur brigade,  which transported goods across the continent by canoe, is common knowledge. Not so well appreciated, though, is the fact that  one of the chief builders of the Canadian Pacific Railway was  Donald Smith, a Hudson's Bay official. And, apart from the  story of their SS Beaver, little is known of the pioneer role played  by the HBC in shipping along the north Pacific coast. Well into  the twentieth century, vessels of the Canadian Pacific Navigation  Company,  the Bay's maritime branch, of its transportation  system, carried passengers and freight along both outer and inner  shores of Vancouver Island and up and down the entire mainland  coast from Puget Sound to Alaska. Mainly sternwheelers, these  shallow-draft ships penetrated the Fraser River as far upstream as  Yale, the Skeena to Hazelton, and the Stikine to Telegraph Creek,  reaching the uttermost limits of water travel beyond the coast's  major ports. The Hudson's Bay Company trading posts that these  steamers served became centers of population, many of which remain today, changing their functions as the world in which they  survive changes, yet retaining much of the characteristics of their  birth. Skeena River, about 1910. Photo courtesy Eric Thomson  collection. L.R. Peterson  Maryanne's Viewpoint  Grahams were a community asset  by Maryanne West  A year ago when Bob and Joy  Graham and their children, Shani,  Mark, and Robert, left for a year's  exchange assignment in their native  Australia, we didn't know that,  due to a number of circumstances,  they would decide to stay 'down  under'..  They took such an active part in  the community during the years  they lived here that their friends,  would not want them to go without  a few words of appreciation. I only  knew them slightly but their friends  weren't hard to find and all wjsj-e  happy to talk about their feelings,  and love for them. Bob had taught,-,  in Manitoba and the West Indies'  before coming to Gibsons to teach  at Elphinstone. He also had the  responsibilities   of   Guidance  Counsellor.  Kids are special to Bob Graham,  all kids, even the unattractive, mixed up, anti-social ones. In fact the  greater the problem, the greater the  challenge and the greater the  reward if the problems can be overcome. Bob has the gift of being a  good, empathetic listener, so essential to a counsellor, but no tale of  woe, or injustice, no excuse, would '  dilute his advice to stand on your  own feet and face up to you'  responsibilities.  A good teacher knows that  everyone remembers best what,  touches their emotions, and Bob'  with his strong sense of 'the  ridiculous, sense of humour, and  ability to ham it up, never hesitated  to make issues come to life through  classroom dramatizations or'one-  man skits in his efforts to reach the  hearts and minds of the students.  Everyone responded to his  warmth and friendliness and it is  the first thing everyone mentioned  about him; how he welcomed the  newcomer, how he followed  through on concerns, how  available he always was and dependable.  Besides the demands of school,  Bob worked indefatigably for the  Teacher's Association, mostly I  imagine on behalf of the underdog  or those without a viable clout of  their own, motivated by his deep-  rooted antipathy to any sort of injustice. ������.���.:-���  Joy, who is a registered nurse,  hasn't I think, practised her profession here, with a young family to  care for. As they grow older she  finds   time   to   expand   her  understanding and experience of  other arts; music, art, and in particular,   writing,   having   taken*  courses at Capilano College. The  Arts Council misses one of its most  tireless workers, who a couple of  years ago organized a most successful auction to raise funds and  who also was instrumental in bringing  Canadian  writers  to  the  Coast and arranged the tribute to  Hubert Evans on his 90th birthday.  Joy is described by a friend as  "appearing to be fragile, but having great resiliency and resources of  inner  strength";  another , friend  concluded a recital of Joy's activities,   including  garden,  goats  and rabbits, with "but she wasn't a  'T.V. dinner' housekeeper, there  were always home cooked meals,  and fresh bread from the oven to  which any visitor was always  welcome."  The Grahams are a closeknit  family, both parents sharing their,  interests with their children and  helping them develop their many  and diverse talents.  Although no community likes to  lose such a vibrant, active, and giving family, maybe the way to look  at it is that we have an extension of  ourselves in Perth Australia and to  keep the lines of communication  humming. Perhaps we haven't lost  the Grahams so much as Perth has  gained the Sunshine Coast.  I  .-   >a   ,.> ���;>  ^'.J.". v..  *��A  ..>.''.v,''.*.',.^ .''M V.M.Mv. Va M.

Ramblings of a Rover  Hi-jinks in Japan  by DeeCee  High Jinks in Japan  The S.S. Tantara, owned and  operated by the Johnson-Walton  Lines, was to be the first of many  similar   freighters   or   "tramp  steamers" that I was to serve on  for the next few years. Hurriedly  built  during  the  war  years  to  replace the alarming number of  vessels that were being torpedoed  by German submarines in the Battle of the Atlantic, they were then  known as the Park Ships and were  mainly engaged in transporting the  vital arms and supplies so necessary  if Britain and her allies were to  have any hope of winning the war.  They resembled, so I was told, the  American Liberty Ships, having a  gross  tonnage  of about   10,000  tons, and at the successful conclusion of the war, many of them were  sold to Western Canada Steamships and, still flying the Canadian  flag, were called the Lake boats,  but more on that subject later.  . With the exception of the Captain and his officers, very little  seemed to be known as to our  ultimate  destination  other  than  that we were going to Japan with a  full cargo of Albertan anthracite  coal. After an uneventful crossing  we arrived at the port of Muroran,  on. the south-west side of Hokkaido, the largest and most northerly of the Japanese Islands.  Vaguely I recalled having read  that Hokkaido was the present  home of the remainder of the  '"Hairy" Ainu, the aborigines of  those scattered islands. While I  must confess that during our bried  stay in Muroran I didn't encounter  any of those strange, bear-  worshipping people, there were  many other distractions that could  only be described as being slightly  on the "hairy" side.  I should like it understood that  what I am about to say is not a  criticism of young Canadian  manhood, rather I am proud of it,  but I had seen ample evidence  overseas that they could be extremely boisterous at times.  However, no matter which branch  of the armed forces they were serving in, there was always a code of  rules to be observed and the  discipline to enforce them. In the  case of Canadian Merchant  seamen that discipline still prevailed aboard ship, but once they were  ashore all hell seemed to break  loose and the weird and wonderful  capers they indulged in defy the  imagination. I regret to say that I  was no better or worse than any of  them!  I have no means of knowing if  our ship was the first Canadian  ship to dock in Muroran after the  war, but the-people seemed to be  terrified of us and they were at a  disadvantage at the time as the  Japanese police had no authority  over us. Also apparently the  American Occupational force  hadn't as yet got around to policing the northern islands. They were  too busy, I imagine, down south  with their headquarters either in  Tokyo or Yokohama.  I have no space to devote to a  description of all the shenanigans  our boys got themselves into but  for a while lam pf the opinion that  conditions resembled the wild and  wooly west of frontier days in  America. We drank and caroused  and, short of raping the girls or  looting   the   shops,   did   about  everything  imaginable  to   prove  that we were having the time of our  lives and, possibly, we were. There  was an abundance of beer and saki  and even a fair imitation of Scotch  whiskey called Sun Tory. There  were numerous houses of prostitution or, as they were politely called,  "Ho" or "Happy Houses" and,  while the Japanese yen was simply  a piece of paper and practically  worthless,   such  items  as  soap,  cigarettes, tea or coffee were highly  prized and we practically stripped  the   ship  of  white   sheets   and  pillowcases and, after bartering our  own, we pinched those belonging  to the officers. For some strange  reason, unknown to me, they were  in great demand. It is possible that  during the war years the Japanese  were so concerned with their war  s  I  efforts they had neither the times  nor the material to spare in their*  manufacture.  I  will  never  know  who  was  responsible for eventually appealing to the authorities down south  for help in controlling these ram*  bunctious  Canadians,   but  after,,  about a week of rampage a squad'  of the U.S. 21st Airborne Division"'  were   flown   in   with  a   Master^  Sergeant in charge. Whether thej|  too were affected by the bracing?  winds blowing across from Siberiaf*  or whether they hated to be out#  done    by    their    northerly  neighbours, is hard to determine  but, after a preliminary show of_  authority, in a few days they joined,!]  in the frolics and things really gotM  out of hand. I remember one night,^}  towards the end, when even the��!  Sergeant seemed to go berserk andQ  shot out the lights in one of oun|j  favourite watering holes, knownA  appropriately,  enough   as   tl '  Tempest. Perhaps it is as well tl atgj  by this time our cargo of coal wasta  unloaded  and our shore leaves^  were cancelled and we departed fort^  our return to Canada.

As the representative of the  B.C./Yukon area to the national  body, I have been requested to and  hereby add our voice to the many  others who are asking you to  reconsider the'social legislation  which your government has introduced and is now in the process  of putting into place.  At our recent annual provincial  meeting, a discussion of the nature  and implications of this "social  legislation" took place. Two  related resolutions were passed,  which you will find enclosed for  the purpose of your serious consideration. We would appreciate  your response to these resolutions  and to the contents of this communication. We appeal to you out  of our concern for all the people of  our province, especially die growing number of marginalized individuals and groups who more  than ever need to feel the healing  compassion of that society to  which it belongs, but instead are  experiencing an increasing sense of  AUTOPLAN  Knowledge & experience is  your best guarantee of  proper coverage  at the lowest cost  We offer both  i::  SUNSHINE COAST  INSURANCE AGENCIES  LTD.

We believe that the proposed  legislation, much of which has  already been passed, threatens in  various ways to erode and undermine the basic rights and human  dignity of the individual and cause  even greater social instability. As  well, this legislation will contribute  to conditions in our province  which will force those least able to  bear the burdens of our current recent economic problems, to struggle under an increasingly  disproportionate and unequal  share of this burden.  At the same time that this  criticism is offered, we  acknowledge the recent positive  response of your government in  meaningful decision-making. We  urge you to move from this initial  consultative process to examining  ways and means of involving  labour and specific interest groups  in consultation on an ongoing  basis, as well as small and large  scale business groups, which, we  feel, are already more than adequately represented through such  bodies as the Fraser Institute.  We believe that socially responsible, economically sustainable  government programs and agencies  are not only possible, but absolutely essential to a healthy democracy.  We believe that the health of a  society is best gauged by the situations of the least fortunate of its  members. Conversely, we do not  subscribe to the economic doctrine  which places the primacy of capital  over labour and which proposes  that the "trickle down" effect will  eventually adequately address the  serious economic and social problems which face us today, ex-  pecially as they are experienced by  this growing marginalized sector.  Our hope and prayer is that you  and your co-workers in government will be guided in your  decision-making and in your actions by a true sense of the dignity  and freedom of all people, equally,  from the richest of the rich, to the  poorest of the poor.  Yours truly,  (sig.) John C. Frazer  cc: Solidarity Coalition  Do business at home  Editor  After a year in business, I have  come to certain conclusions about  trying to operate a business in  Sechelt. Excluding my regular  customers, I have found that a  great many people do not even give  you a chance to compete with Vancouver prices.  Overhead expenses are of prime  concern when pricing merchandise,  but it seems to me that if merchants could have competitive  prices there would be increased  sales volume, therefore allowing  the same profit.  On the other hand, this is a very  limited market here, and a business  can only sell a limited number of  any item. A business in Vancouver  can easily afford to sell something  at a low price because of the huge  population.  The apathetic attitude of a lot of  people is killing business here and  stagnating growth on the coast as a  whole. Let's keep our dollars here  where they will benefit all of us.  Get out there and "wheel and  deal" a little - i think you'll be surprised to find that you can get a  good deal here. All I'm saying is  "give us a chance"  Neil - Eagle Mtn. Traders  Lung campaign  said successful  Editor  On behalf of the British Columbia Lung Association, I would like  to extend my thanks to you and  your readers for the generous support given to the 1983 Christmas  Seal Campaign.  The Campaign does not end officially until January 31, with contributions to date totalling slightly  below our goal of $825,000.  Christmas Seal donations this year  are higher than last years' returns  and with this in mind, we are cer-  Ads get  results  Editor,  I thought that you might appreciate knowing that in response  to my ad in the Wanted Column of  your paper, for a small boat, I  received six phone calls and,  following up on the last, found exactly what I wanted at a very  reasonable price.  I have said it before and I say it  again,   "Placing  an  ad  in  the  classified columns of the Coast  News sure brings results!"  ^^ D. Cruickshank  Paper is  enjoyed  Editor,  Kindly renew my subscription  for a further year.  I enjoy your paper very much  and it is more interesting than the  Powell River News.  Last year's subscription was a  gift from my brother, R.A. Russell  of Gibsons.  Although I am a senior citizen  now, I received my education from  the Howe Sound School���going  from grade one to grade 11. Then  on to St. Paul's Hospital to obtain  my RN. I have many memories of  Gibsons.  Thank you.  Mrs. Doris Chambers  tain that our goal will be met. We  feel that the 1983 Christmas Seal  Campaign has been very successful  considering the poor economic  conditions British Columbians  have been faced with during the  past year.  The British Columbia Lung  Association, through Christmas  Seal donations, is able to provide  support to vital medical research  projects, programs of public and  professional; education, programs  of'Sdhool" education to convince  school children not to take up  cigarette smoking, as well as to inform the public about the hazards  of air pollution, tobacco and occupational lung disease.  Once again, thank you all very  much.  Dr. F.D. Mackenzie,  President  British Columbia  Lung Association  Skookum  Marie Qulflmrd says...  Thank you for giving so  many bears a home - you've  certainly helped me cut my  bear feed bill.

Well, now I know how that country mouse felt. I was in a huge  department store shopping with  friends, our time was limited and  I'm a clock watcher. After seven to  eight minutes with not a salesperson in sight I went to the cashier  s*4d she didn't look me in tli*Bia,e  buftivaguely waved 1ftF'5t  section landsaid,��M'Salesjp  then"X     ��� ���'���-;-'���;    X.. "'��� ''-WiW.  I went down that aisle -^|o one.  Nor the next aisle, norths next.;  In other stores there's lots df  body language, glaring, almost  elbowing, looks of impatience,  disgust, etc. Try being civil, is that  CLAIMS  the same as friendly, like letting someone with one or two items go  ahead of you in line, or help someone looking for something on  the shelf and you get looks like  "They must have let them out for  the day..."  Country mouse scurries back to  .downtown Egmont to shop, due  the Coast News advertising the  store is busy,  there are special  lower than half price sales because  money is tight and we heed a  lift...nothing like going home with  an arm full and still having money  in your pocket. And the service!  People are helping each other, even  unpacking things, or telling the  salesperson to save an item for  Mary as I'm sure it'll fit her, or set  this aside for Vi, she collects pitchers. No Chargex, put your name  on the wall list and how much you  owe. Cross it off when you pay. A  long time ago a woman moved  away and didn't pay. Her name's  still there, owing 35 cents.  Next store, Bob is always there,  and nearly always has what you  want, if not, Jack will pick it up on  Wednesday's trip to the city...  Then the Backeddy...a lot of  people seem to think because it's  called a pub you have to drink, not  so...there often can be more  teapots on the tables than beer  mugs. Sundays are family days, the  children are treated like honoured  guests. Monday evening is musical  trivia which is just getting started  but I predict will be the busy night.  And there's no pressure from the  salesperson to drink up.  Thrift store needs hangers  please. Anyone who can spare a  few hangers just drop them off in  the.grey box in front of the community hall.  Ken Sharp - 10 years old, Happy  Birthday.  ���i  ���&.  by Jeanie Norton Parker, 886-3973  The main business at last  Wednesday's Community Association meeting was a discussion of  how to get compensation for victims of December's flooding.  When asked why other areas in the  province are receiving help but the  Sunshine Coast isn't, MLA Don  , Lockstead told regional director  Brett McGillivray that we had to  make more of a fuss to be noticed.  So it was decided that a delegation would talk to the CBC and a  reporter from the Vancouver Sun  to make the situation known. If the  . provincial government needs a  ruckus to be prodded into action, a  ruckus will be raised.  In other business, Donna Shugar  and Ken Dalgleish were voted a  sum of $200 for their trip to  Nicaragua to pick cotton. They are  the representatives from the Sunshine Coast in a group of 20-25  from B.C. going down in support  of the revolution there.  John Williams will be forming a.  work party near the end of  February to replace the posts  behind the post office. He still  needs a number of cedar poles to  do the job so if you have any to  donate, please call John at  886-2689.  , It was mentioned that the person  logging at the mouth of the creek  did have permission from the  Department of Fisheries but it was  generally agreed at the meeting that  it was still not desireable.  It was decided that future community association meetings Will be  held in the community use room of  the joint facility. The room is  warmer than the community hall  and should prove more comfortable.  And Friday, February 24 has  been designated for the grand  opening of Kraus Hall. There will  be a short dedication ceremony  and open house for people to tour  the facility, followed by a dance to  christen the new hall. More details  later.  ENTERTAINING WEEKEND  This weekend promises to be  quite entertaining. First, there's the  parents' auxiliary talent show at  the school, Friday night at 7:30.

Also, in his first year at UBC is  Jim Sanders, who was awarded the  Kiwanis bursary last June. Jim tells  his dad, retired production  manager at Port Mellon, "University is so different with classes  sometimes scheduled in the evenings. I like the sciences but I  haven't, made any decisions yet  about the future.'  Winner of one of the Gibsons  Legion scholarships, Renee  Michaud. is well along in her year  of- French immersion at Laval  university in Montreal. Her dad  reports her French is now very  fluent with no trace of an English  accent. Renee's ambition is to be a  military pilot, and she has an application in to enter a military college. "But it's a long list, so I just  hope."  Anne Parker, winner of the  Headlands award for highest  academic standing at Elphie in  1982, is in her second year of  languages at U Vic. In her first year  at the, university Anne won' the  Carl Weisselberger Memorial  award in Germanic studies.  M  EXPERIENCE COUNTS  The other day in the vicinity of  Fletcher and School a gentleman  was scything dead grass very neatly  from an overgrown front yard.  Dead grass lying in a tangle, too.  "Just have to go at it slowly," he  said. He was taking it off neater  than a horse cropping it.  "Just being neighbourly to me,"  said a younger man. "When I  scythe, birds glying overhead are in  danger."  When asked, the man with the  scythe said he was nowhere near  ninety years of age; "I'm only 87",  he said.  When he paused to let the young  man catch up with the raking of  the mounds of dead grass, he said  yes, the scythe was an old-timer  too, at least the wooden handle  was - about 60 years old - and you  don't get the wooden ones  anymore. He didn't seem to mind  some of us standing to ; stare.  Perhaps he thought that's all we  know to do anyway.

"And every 'substantial change' in  a by-law requires it, too." He add-  . ed, "It's so much easier to explain  technicalities than to write them."  Planner Geoff Powers' noted  also the amount of time required to  produce completed maps in advance, rather than drafts as before.

Mr by Peggy Connor  JCaptain Jerry Williams 1902-1984  1 A truly fine gentleman passed  ��way on Monday, January 16.  jpaptain John S. Tamatoa Williams  fcnowri to friends as Jerry. He and  ���hjs wife Joyce moved to Redrooffs  fooad in Halfmoon Bay some sixteen years ago, leaving there three  'years ago to live in Sechelt.  **" Born in Quesnei in 1902, Captain Williams spent a large part of  his life working with and on  rtugboats plying the coastal waters.  He served with the Royal Canadian  Navy in World War II, afterwards  (returning to Gulf of Georgia Towing.-  ��� A memorial service was held at  'St. Johns United Church in Davis  IBay, with the service conducted by  ithe Reverend John Low of the  Anglican Catholic Church.  j It was a seaman's service, hymns  of the sea, and a grand bit of  poetry, a favourite of his, read by  his son Roger. The church was filled with local friends, relatives, and  friends from Vancouver.  ' Reverend Low spoke on the life  of Captain Williams telling of how  his great grandfather was a London missionary who, many years  ago, journeyed to the Society  Islands to serve as a missionary. He  did many fine things there yet the  natives ended up eating him for  dinner. Captain Jerry's third chris-.  tian name, Tamatoa, came from  fhief Tamatoa, a friend of his  great-grandfather. The chief asked  it be given to his son - Jerry's  grandfather, who was born on  Raiatea Island.  He. was a good citizen, a grand  friend, one who will be missed by  his many friends but not  remembered sadly. He was such a  congenial fellow, with his friendly  smile, and that is how he will be  remembered.

I had my first experience  of piloting a "front wheel drive**  vehicle'in the snow and it was  great. However, there was one big  thing that bothered me. Younught  have noticed this year that the  roads don't get ploughed with the  same frequency they have in other  years.  It used to be that if it was snowr  ing, the ploughs were out and  around quite often until it stopped,  and at least one lane was safe and  passable. This year due to cutbacks, the highway is the main  priority and all other roads are  considered if. and when the  highway is totally clear.  Now this poses a problem. At  Garden Bay Fire Hall, the chains  were put on the trucks Friday  night. If we had a call in the night  we could have moved the trucks  .out but would all the volunteers  have been able to make it to the  hall? What about the ambulance  folks?  Personally, I left my car at the  top of Irvines Landing hill and  walked down and into Lee Bay. If I  had been called it would mean a  run of half a mile almost all up hill  before I could go to the Fire Hall if  I didn *t get stuck on the way up  some other hill on the way there.  Np sense blasting the fellas who  drive the ploughs and salt trucks,  they're going full tilt at what has  become a scary job by'that time.  Bill' Turner (our foreman) and  Tucker Forsyth are basically  powerless against these cutbacks. I  would urge that the Fire and Ambulance Departments board of  trustees and' anybody who cares,  draft a letter to Victoria asking  than to reconsider overtime during  snow or ice storms. The ambulance  and fire folks are not already at  their halls as they are in Vancouver. Firemen are not paid to be  ready to help up here, they just do  it. How can fire trucks and ambulances roll if the volunteers can't  get to the hall? Must we sacrifice '  safety and well-being to practise  restraint? Let's practise during the  rain and the rest of the year.  If you think this is over-reacting,  then remember that there were two  emergencies on that snowy Saturday and the hour of the day was   .  with us.

TEENAGE ALCOHOL ABUSE  Dates and times are confirmed'  .for the awareness workshop being "  planned   by   the   Community *  Response Program on Teenage   ;  Alcohol Abuse. It starts Friday,  January 27, at 7 p.m. at the com-  ,  munity hall, with.a session on X  Alcohol and the Body given by Dr.  Wayne Martin and Alcohol and  the Law given by Beata Malkus.  The workshop continues Saturday, January 28, with more interesting speakers. If you care, just  a bit, why not show up? Even one  session might be an eye opener.  Friday night looks especially interesting to me. For more information see the posters up everywhere.  BARGAIN BARN OPEN  The Bargain Barn-is open again  each Thursday and Saturday 1-3:30  p.m. There is a surplus of clothing  and therefore a clearance sale of  giveaway proportions will be on  until .the. end of January. Also,  more help is needed in running this  project so if you have two or three  hours to spare once a month,  please contact Muriel Cameron  883-2609, or Ruth Kobus 883-9603.  Ruth also asked me to print the  winners of the Area A Clinic Auxiliary Pre-Christmas raffle (better  late than never): First prize of an  Indian sweater was won by Hazel  Charbonneau - drawn by Dr. Martin; second prize of $50 cash to  Tanya MacDonald - drawn by Jean  Jones; and third, a dressed up doll  and wardrobe was won by Sylvia  Woodsworth - drawn by Peg Riley.

(You  can imagine the money being saved  as they hire $10 per hour people to -  administer and mark all the papers  and the postage etc. The people  who give and mark the classes fill  over the province are all willing  volunteers!) As every person who  wants to get a hunting licence must  have completed a CORE programme in order to get the licence,  die government has got you over a  barrel and this is your last chance ,  to get it easily and with good personal instruction: It's open to  anyone 13 years and up and costs  twenty dollars for 35 hours of instruction. Phone Ron at 883-9015  or Randy Tancock at Fisheries at  883-2313 and take advantage of  your last chance.  HEART FOUNDATION  The B.C. Heart Foundation canvas is February 6-24.

SALMONID ENHANCEMENT  LABOUR OF LOVE  The cold spell before Christmas  and the present freezing weather  has kept members of the Sechelt  Peninsula Rod and Gun Club very  busy. Like mother hens they have  been out keeping a good flow of  water to the 33,000 coho in their  care. Jack Cawdell, in charge of  the  salmonid  enhancement  program for the gun club, and his  dedicated helpers, Manfred Cook,  Len Clark and Bill Boyte, have  been guided by John Lewis, coordinator from the fisheries, a very  knowledgeable and dedicated man.  Save The Salmon Society funded  two student workers to assist. They  are Tom Soames and Ken Allan-  son, who are working towards a  future in the fisheries. The men  were well pleased with the young  fellows.  L;M-:,The coldest weather came in the  . early.stages.of the eggs but with  four heaters going night and day j  they? managed Mo 'keep them from  freezing. They had the water running well, then all of a sudden it  froze up again. There was lots of  action   going   on   to   keep   the  precious oxygen available.  Ninety per cent of the eggs made  it to fry, which is.an excellent  result. In nature the percentage is  nine.

Volunteer and lighten.their load.  by Ruth Forrester, 885-2418  A GENTLEMAN MOVES ON  The United Church at Davis Bay  was filled to capacity on Thursday  as friends and neighbours from the  Redrooffs and Halfmoon Bay area  gathered to pay tribute to the  memory of a good neighbour and  friend. The passing of a man who  was known to most of us as Jerry  Williams saddened all who were  fortunate enough to have known  him and our thoughts and hearts  go out to Joyce and to the family  he leaves behind.  Jerry was a man of the sea who  served in the Royal Canadian Naval  Reserve in World War II and was a  life member of the Canadian Merchant Service Guild.  Upon retirement to Redrooffs in  1968, the Williams became very actively involved with the Welcome  Beach Community Association  where Jerry added much to the excitement and joy of many good  shuffle board tournaments as well  as attending many of the dances  and social activities at the hall. We  will all miss him.  HOSPITAL AUXILIARY  President Bertie Hull chaired her  first meeting of the year at the  January meeting in Welcome  Beach Hall. Annual reports were  given by the various committee  heads and a most successful year it  was. Jean Scott is treasurer again  this year and secretary is Olive  Corny n.  An important position has yet to  be filled���that of vice-president. It  is hoped that someone will fill this  post at the February meeting which  is at 10 a.m. on Monday, February  6 at Welcome Beach Hall.  Members were reminded of the  annual meeting of all volunteers to  be held at Sechelt Legion on  February 22 at 11 a.m. You bring  your own lunch for this affair, and  to add a bit of fun, Carmen Grassie  will once again present the Thrift  Shop Fashion Show.  THE FIRST HUMMING BIRD?  Had a call last week from Mrs.  Wenn of Eureka reporting that  while she was washing the outside  window of her deck, a wee humming bird flew right into her hair.  And this was ��� the first week in  January.  Mrs. Wenn, in her wisdom, proceeded to fill the feeder so that the  poor little guy would be able to get  some nourishment while there are  no pollens around for their natural  feeding. So if you should spot one  around about now you would be  doing it a big favour by doing the  same thing.  Also of note was the fact that  Mr. and Mrs. Wenn had celebrated  their 50th Wedding Anniversary in  December. So, belated good wishes  go out to the Wenns���may they  celebrate many more happy anniversaries.  Talking of anniversaries���don't  forget that Rabbie Burns' birthday  will be celebrated on January 28 at  the Sechelt Legion. The pipe band  m  works very hard to make each sue��  birthday celebration an outstanding evening of entertainment and  dancing. Tickets are available at  Trail Bay Hardware.

Business people generally try to keep up a stiff upper lip,  and give the impression that everything's rosy and good in  their little corner.

That got me to thinking about that non-sensical greeting  we all so often use. When we pose that question, are we  really prepared to listen sympathetically to the ills and woes  of those to whom the question is addressed: Not likely.  So, to those who believe the businessman of today is  laughing all the way to the bank, my suggestion is,���don't  ask, "How are you?",���for he or she either won't tell you  the truth, or he or she will try to really tell it as I tried the last  two weeks.  i2^i?Hi4i|v'^  *-<��'*22��  i*+Tir  Shop with confidence.

MacLeod  Only one more week to see the  very popular exhibition of paintings by Pnina Granirer at the Arts'  Centre in Sechelt.  Inspired by the mysticism and  mystery of Indian legends and the  rain forest of the Queen Charlotte  islands, Pnina Granirer's Cannibal  Bird Suite is hauntingly beautiful  with its ghostly figures, forest  animals and Cannibal Birds  floating through the forest. The  restrained colour, mostly soft  greens and browns, is used, with  skill and control.  in the 'Trials of Eve' Suite the  artist depicts her notion of the  history of woman. Poor Eve has a  hard time trying to enjoy the apple  of knowledge which she so  naughtily bites way back in  Paradise. However the suite has a  happy ending with it looking as if  Eve might be allowed to enjoy her  apple..  This suite of paintings (or really  coloured drawings) show the artists  skill as an illustrator. The works  would not be harmed by being  smaller in scale and one can see  them made into a book, accompanied by Granirer's clear and interesting comments which preface  her work in the exhibition  catalogue.  Don't miss this show - it's on until January 29. Arts Centre, Trail  and Medusa, Sechelt.

Rated  The Man Who Would be Crusoe  Part V  Such traumatic events as Ernie's  gory demise only serve to divert  Jack Bird momentarily from his  -main purpose. He continues to  work doggedly on his getaway  vessel, spurred on by idyllic dreams  of Polynesian tranquility with the  civilized rat race left far behind.  The raft is virtually completed now  but the dream is about to be shattered.  Jack Bird recalls; "My logs were  lashed together by 1500 feet of  half-inch galvanized cable, flexible  enough to tie knots in and held in  place by five-inch staples. I realized  that, in about two years, the teredo  would honeycomb the logs so they  would no longer float. But as long  as the raft stayed together for at  least six months after I shoved off,  I would not mind."  (According to Amelia Wilson,  Jack Bird actually did try to set sail  in his cumbersome craft and was  turned back by the Harbour  Authorities who deemed it quite  unseaworthy. Bird himself,  however, makes no mention of any  such event and we will have to  assume the story to be apocryphal.)  In any event, the voracious  teredoes are a good deal hungrier  than Jack Bird has anticipated.  The riddled logs begin to succumb  to their greedy ministrations in less  than a year. Bird has vainly hoped  that the oil-polluted water around  the foreshore will somehow slow  the.shipwbrms* ravages but it does  no such thing. Desperately Bird  raises the deck level and keeps  building but it is all to no avail.  When the water slopping over the  deck becomes a foot deep, he  realizes the teredoes have beaten  him. Resignedly, Bird begins  unloading all theeffects he has optimistically brought aboard. "It  was the biggest, hardest undertaking of my life," he repeats sadly,  "and also the most costly failure."  His dreams of Crusoehood, irrevocably dashed,,. Jack Bird  decides to move to another cabin, a  quarter of a mile to the east. He  has the waterlogged raft towed  around and beached in front of his  new quarters. There it will sit for  the next few years like an ironic  monument to countless hours of  hard work and $6000 of har.d earned money gone down the drain.  After the disheartening failure of  his raft venture, Jack Bird assumed  a lower profile around the squatter's colony. His savings were gone  and he was reduced to minimal circumstances. Part time jobs are few  and far between. As Bird says, his  diaries of those years make sorry  reading: "March 1959 - 13 days  work in past 14 months." and  "Down to 36 cents in cash with  enough beans, porridge and tea for  about three more days." They are  not days he would care to live over  again.

G vveh \ n Gibsons  Bob Graham cahght by the Elphinstone Yearbook's cameraman in  fa characteristic pose, in the counselling office during his last year at  |the school. He and his family are now settled in warmer pastures in  IWestern Australia.  rahams to stay  n Australia  by Judith Wilson  The lure of Western Australia  has proved too much for local  teacher Bob Graham and his family who after 14 years in Canada  nave decided to return, at least for  f while, to their native land.  LBob, his wife Joy, and their  ildren Shani, Robert, and Mark,  lave, been living in Perth for the  past year on a teacher. exchange  program.  I Several factors influenced their  decision to remain. Family and  Health concerns were paramount,  followed by the pleasure of working in a political climate conducive  ftp the development of education;  and of course the sunshine and  tfeaches of Western Australia were  <o a factor.  That it was not an easy decision  D make was evident over the  Christmas period when Bob  turned from the warmth of  /estern Australia to the dampness;  djf B.C. to say goodbye to friends  tjpd associates and to wind up  business and household matters.  itis obvious regret at farewelling  t friends that he and the family  made in Yneir 10 years in Gib-  sbns was equalled by the regret of  those here  who  were  losing  a  \talued friend and colleague.  - His sojourn in Canada began in  JBP68 when he arrived in Winnipeg  w begin teaching. After five years,  which-included a year in Jamaica,  he moved to Gibsons where he has  been a teacher of Social Studies,  Math and English and a counsellor  at Elphinstone Secondary.  But Bob was much more than  to both teachers and students.  was an understanding shoulder  lay on, a speaker of words of  torn, and a warm and caring .  end. He was also a very funny'  and his wit and'gentle irony  sorely missed.  Perth, the family are settling  Darlington, a suburb in the  -���thills of the Darling Escarp  ment. Described as "the Roberts  ��� Creek of Perth" it is an area of  small hobby farms where many  practising artists and writers live.  Joy Graham, who was very active in the Arts Centre on the Coast  and deeply involved in literary activities here, is looking forward to  continuing her artistic and literary  involvement, in Darlington.  Bob's' children have been quick  to take advantage of the activities  available in the warm antipodean  climate.  The sports they are involved in  include cricket, football, rugby,  and running as well as surfing and  swimming. At school all three were  able to advance half a grade  although some math coaching was  required to bring Shani up to the  grade ten math level.  The standards of education in  the lower grades are similar to  B.C., according to Bob, although  the math standard is higher. In the  upper grades Australian students  specialise in a few subjects only  and thus the/academic standard is  considerably higher than here.  Competition to get into university is fierce as only the top students ���  are allowed to enter and their feess  are paid by the government.  Bob will be teaching Social  Studies at Governor Stirling Secondary School. However his training  and experience incot~nscliing-may  lead to specialised work in that  area.  Methods of counselling in Canadian Schools are different from,  and appear superior to, those used  in Australian schools.  The Graham family-have deep  roots in the Sunshine Coast and in  Canada and are hoping for many  Canadian visitors, particularly  since-the Australia's Cup will be  sailed in Perth in 1987. And, as  Bob pointed out, "our two boys  were born in .Winnipeg and are  Canadian citizens, so they can  sponsor their parents back to  Canada in a few years."  \l\Y\ \KI)S ���  2 AUCTIONS  1      RECEIVERSHIP OF  Wharf Road, Sechelt, B.C.

All expressed concern  about the erosion of protection  that was so difficult to obtain.  Some pointed out, as did Jack  Webster's callers, that what is  needed is more, rather than less,  protection. I shall not go into detail  about the instances where. more  protection is needed, but will concentrate, for the time being, on  haying former protection restored.  ���". One reader contacted the butchers in her area, asked if they were  aware of the change from regular  inspection to spot checking, and  found that they were not. It would  seem that they had not been officially informed,  so could  not  know that they must be more alert  when purchasing meat. Had it not  been for the unions, PSAC and  BCGEU, we woidd hot know.  In an effort to bring attention to  this backward step by the government, my article will he forwarded  to Nicole Parton who may, in turn,  alert the Vancouver readership and  I would ask that those concerned  do the same. It might be helpful if  you would forward the article or a  letter from yourself; to any other  paper that you know of,  I will be sending 'thank you' letters to PSAC and BCGEU. The  longer this legislation is in place,  the longer it will take to bring back .  former protection, so, if you have  any other ideas or plans, please  bring them to my attention.  |   You'll have atleast one artidc ready for publication at  the end of thiscburse.  ^443.00 for 8 sessions, starts January 26th  7:00-10:00 PA, Chatelech.

Kinsmen Clubs  . throughout B.C. joined forces to  raise funds for hospital equipment  such as iron lungs, hydro-therapy  baths and rocking beds, as well as  ambulance and special nursing services. In'1952, the KRF was first  registered as a health and welfare  . agency under the "Societies Act"  as the B.C. Polio Foundation.  Salk vaccine, introduced in the  early 1950s, eventually brought  polio under control, but long term  treatment and care of those disabl-  " ed by the disease continued to  receive support.

Labelled "Environment 2000",  the two programs have $35,000,000  available in job-creating funds.  The programs are. aimed at  unemployed youths between the  ages of 16 and 24 with supervisory  positions for older people over 50.  i.Target*communities- are-those  with high levels of unemployment.  Funded projects will be in the areas v,  of forestry renewal and coriservaf ��  tion projects such as park develop-  '  ment and salmonid enhancement.  Municipalities,   education   institutes, business and community  groups may apply.  Projects must be non-profit and  offer at least three full-time jobs  lasting a minimum of eight weeks  and a maximum of 20. They must  start on or before April 1,1984 and  end by March 31, 1985.  Proposals from communities  must be submitted before the end  of January, 1984 to: Regional  Director, General Pacific and  Yukon Region, Environment  Canada, ,800 Burrard Street, Vancouver V6Z 2J7. Phone number to  call is 666-5900.

Vince Bracewell  11 told the Coast News that Turner  j^was  "really impressed"  by the  ��| "great potential" of the area.  |,|    Although   originally   to   be  i\ developed as a cross-country skiing  \\ area, examination showed that a  ��j3800 foot ridge elevation which  tJhad been recently logged off by  it- Jackson Brothers could be utilised  as an ideal downhill facility par-  /       iticularly suited for telemarking (a  M     'graceful mixture of cross-country  land downhill techniques).  |    The project was initiated two  J years   ago   when   the   Sechelt  | Chamber pf Commerce approach-  |ed the ski club with a view to  | developing   a   semi-commercial  i winter tourist activity. The fact  | that the development would have  'to be of a commercial nature to  | make  it  viable,   and  that  the  'Chamber did not want to own or  'operate it but only smoothe the  way for an operator to take over,  has created some problems with  Forestry who designated the area  for recreational purposes. MM  These problems have now been  resolved and at a meeting which  will be held in Vancouver in two  weeks time with Larry Sorldn of  Lands, Parks and Housing, an  agreement on use of the area will  be signed. Following that, a legal  and policy-making group will be  formed and tentative concept  designs drawn up. Assistance in  developing the project will be given1  by economic development commissioner Oddvin Vedo. He wiU be  able to help with paperwork, with  establishing liaison with government agencies and with investigating the possible use of  youth employment programs to  create jobs when the project gets  underway. Once the development  is in operation he will be helping  with promotion as well.  The area is accessible at present  by four-wheel-drive vehicle along  Jacksons Gray Creek Rd.

It is important to carefully prepare  the soil you'll be using. Conditions  i are quite different inside, and there  : are pitfalls to avoid. Damping off  " is a problem that can be greatly  reduced by using the proper plan-  > ting medium; drainage is also a  i. concern.  v     For use indoors and in small  : containers, the soil should be much  more porous than  that of the  < garden. The small clay and silt particles found in most garden soils  will   prevent  the  absorption  of  v water and make good drainage difficult to obtain. Because the confines of a pot give so much less  < space than the garden bed, it is easy  to saturate the roots and rob the  plant of valuable air.  For this  < reason the soil should be very  ' porous, able to hold moisture but  also air.  < You may mix your own ingredients for a suitable potting  medium, using organic materials,  and some kind of coarse material  for drainage. You will find it considerably cheaper than buying  ready-mixed soils, especially if you  have a large garden and need to  start a lot of seeds.  The organic material used is for  two purposes, to provide nourishment and to hold water. You may  use sifted compost, earth worm  castings, peat moss, for example.  This organic material not only provides its own nourishment, but attracts and holds nutrients from fertilizers used during the plants  growth. It also holds water, too  much so, on occasion. This is why  it is necessary to add some other  material to keep the air spaces  clear. You may use sand, perlite,  finely ground and sifted rock particles or vermiculite. Except for  vermiculite, none of these  materials provide nourishment or  hold nourishment for the plant,  but they do allow for good  drainage. Vermiculite is the exception; it attracts and holds nutrients  for future realease to the plant  roots, and it holds water many  times its own weight.  To mix your potting medium,  keep to some very basic propor  tions. One third of the mix should  be organic matter. The other two  thirds should be garden soil, and  coarse particle materials. Add lime,  blood meal, rock phosphate and  greensand combined, at a rate of  about two cups per four to five  gallons of mix. If your soil is very  clayey, you will need to use more  of the coarse materials to help with  drainage.  One of the problems with potting soil is the presence of disease-  carrying bacteria. Fortius reason it  is necessary to pasteurize the soil,  not to sterilize it. Sterile soil is open  to invasion by disease-carrying  spores and bacteria, but pasteurized soil has had the harmful  bacteria removed, while leaving  those of benefit. Spread the soil in  a layer about one inch thick in a  large pan, and heat it in the oven  for about half an hour at 140  degrees F. This should do the trick.

They are causing the flooding of  many roadways by damming  numerous small creeks, and on  Sinclair Bay Road are falling alders  right by the roadside.  Stephen said he does not have a  live trap, and if he did he would be  afraid to use it. The beavers have  begun damming culverts so close to  roadways that it would be very  risky to have a trap that close to  where people, especially children,  might discover it.  "A live trap is designed to close  quickly and firmly after an animal  enters it," said Stephen. "If a child  stuck his arm into it, it would cut it  off. You would have to have 24  hour observation of the trap to ensure no one got hurt."  The other complications involved in live-trapping the animals  would be finding a suitable new  home for them. "There are just  not enough deciduous trees around  our lakes to support them," said  Stephen. "The Sunshine Coast is  not a good habitat for beavers, and  they are becoming desperate for  food."  Stephen has concluded that the  most humane way to deal with  them when they begin to cause  flooding problems is to destroy  Personalized^ Guaranteed Service  on the Coast for 14 years.

There  ���were several break and entries  reported; a Fircrest Road residence  was entered on the 15th, $900  worth of goods were stolen, some  clothing, jewellery and a camera  are listed. Entry was gained  through a side door. Police are still  Investigating. On the same day, an  Attempt at breaking and entering  was reported from the Cedar  Plaza. On the 16th, the home  economics room was broken into  ���at Elphinstone Secondary School,  >and a small amount of food was  liaken. Tools were stolen from  ja vehicle parked in the Gibsons Industrial Park area on Shaw Road  ;on the 17th. On the 19th, a  residence on Marine Drive was  broken into and some food stuff  taken.  ���. A   boat   was   stolen   from  Armour's Beach on the 19th. The  tiat was later recovered floating in  e gap, but the boat's motor, a 35  hp Johnson outboard was not  found.  ���' Police have found a bicycle on  Ocean Beach Esplanade. The bike,  a.'Shields, is red in colour and can  be recovered by its owner by  quoting file no. 84/156.  SECHELT RCMP  , It was a busy week in Sechelt  also; a break and entry in Madeira  Park on the 13th resulted in the  theft of a colour TV; the old fire  hall building was broken into on  the 15th and the 16, both times a  quantity of pop was stolen and  thieves also took a heater. The  thefts amounted  to $85.  There  were three attempts made at breaking and entering on the Mth; a  video shop in Pender Harbour had  two plate glass doors smashed by  thieves who could not gain entry  into the shop because of steel bars.  Damages are estimated at $500.  Another attempt was made on the  17th against a Pender Harbour  residence   located   on   Westjac  Road; a back screen door was ripped and left hanging from its casing. The last attempt was made on  the 19th when signs of attempt to  enter the premises of Coast Appliances, located on Cowrie Street,  were discovered.  Several thefts were also  reported; a pallet of interlocking  paving stones valued at $200 was  stolen from Shorncliffe residence  on the 13th; on the same day, a  shoplifter was apprehended at the  Shop-Easy store in the Trail Bay  Mall and an old motorcycle was  stolen from the machine shop at  the Chatelech Secondary School.  Twenty-five dollars worth of gas  was syphoned from a vehicle parked on Osprey Street on the 15th  and on the 16th, a bizarre theft was  reported to police from Morgan's  store at the Trail Bay Mall. It appears that a male suspect was seen  entering the store wearing an; old  jacket and that a little later, the old  jacket was found hanging on a .  rack in place of a new one. The  male suspect was apprehended the  next day when he returned to the  store wearing the jacket he had  stolen the previous day.  Two incidents of vandalism were  reported on the 13th; a car parked  in the waterfront area of the  Sechelt reserve was vandalized; the  window on the driver's side was  smashed and damage was done to  the right side of the car's windshield. Police have no suspects.  Police do not have a suspect in  connection with the other report of  vandalism; someone threw a rock  at the back window of a Jeep while  it was travelling on the road near  the arena. Damage to the Jeep was  estimated at $50. Another report of  willful damage came to the attention of the police on the 14th from  the Pender Harbour area; a 60-year  old woman reported that the tires  to her car had been vandalized on  three separate occasions and that  she felt that some youths she knew  were responsible. It appears that  the woman had asked the youths  not to trespass on her property  previous to these incidents arising.  A report of sudden death was  received on the 16th from Doyle's  logging camp in Storm Bay. Fifty-  nine year old Sechelt resident,  Julius Hansen was found dead,  floating in the water near the  camp. Hansen was employed as a  security guard for the camp and it  is not determined yet if he died of a  heart attack of if he slipped and injured himself while walking on the  walkway leading to the pier.  The driver of a vehicle involved  in a single motor vehicle accident  on the 14th in the NorWest Bay  Road area will be charged with offenses under the Motor Vehicle  Act. The vehicle ended up rolling  into a ditch on Nickerson Road.  The vehicle was being driven at excessive speed and appeared not to  be equipped with proper brakes.  Police are still receiving several  reports of obscene phone calls.  Police feel that they are dealing  with the same person who was  making obscene calls to businesses  last week. The calls are now being  received by private lines.  With the forthcoming trip of  two Roberts Creek residents to  Nicaragua the Sunshine Coast will  be establishing direct links with one  of the world's most volatile trouble  spots. Ken Dalgleish and Donna  Shugar are part of a group of 30  volunteers, organized by the B.C.  Coalition for Solidarity with  Nicaragua, who will travel to  Nicaragua to keep harvest the cotton crop and take a first hand look  at conditions in that country.  The Sanduiistan government in  Nicaragua has been under pressure  from governments unsympathetic  to its operation, in particular the  U.S. which is supporting massive  troop movements in Honduras and  El Salvador on the borders of  Nicaragua. In order to establish  peace in the area, Nicaragua has  suggested a treaty to the U.S.  whose conditions include  withdrawal of all foreign advisers  from the Central American region.  To show their good faith,  Nicaragua has sent home close to  2,000 Cuban medical and social  workers which has created a gap in  the country's efforts to improve its  economy, its standard of living and  its literacy level. '  In order to fill this vacuum, and  to prevent the deterioration of  highly successful programs, North  American volunteer groups have  been organized. It is hoped that an  international presence can give  support to the Nicaraguan people  and help find a non-military solution to the problems in the area.  Nicaragua is at present in a state of  war alert due to fears of an imminent American invasion. The hardships caused by this situation and  the loss of foreign personnel has  jeopardized the harvesting of the  cotton crop which with sugar and  coffee, is one of the three primary  exports on which the country's,  economy is based.  The "Cotton Brigade", as the  B.C. group is called, consists of  representatives with a wide age  range and from a wide variety of  trade unions and church groups.  The organizing group is attempting  to keep political bias at a minimum  and is not sending representatives  from political groups or organizations.  Since conflicting media reports  make it difficult to get a clear picture of the Nicaraguan situation,  one of the aims of the B.C. group  is to bring information back to  B.C. "We will be looking in an  open-minded way; we will be taking photos and making tape-  recordings and we'll tell it as we see  it," declared Ken Dalgleish.  "As Canadians we support people building governments for  themselves in peace." He pointed  out. that the present Nicaraguan  government is supported by the  population and was set up, at a  cost of 40,000 lives, by a coalition  of all groups from Marxist to  Christian, who helped overthrow  the oppressive Somozan regime.  Ken's involvement with the Central American issue was triggered  by the 1982 April Peace March in  Vancouver, the visit of a  Salvadorean refugee to the Sunshine Coast with stories of the  death squads and murders in his  country and the involvement of  North American governments in  the affairs of the region. He formed the Central American Support  Committee on the Coast. "The  more you hear, the more you  care,'* he said. "Our main motivation is humanitarian."  Donna described how she has  been hanging the buttons she collects relating to the issues of peace  and Central America as decorations on her Christmas tree. "I was  angered at hanging the same issues  three years in a row. When is it going to stop? I wanted to take some  direct action."  She categorized herself as "really   conservative���I'm   afraid   of  down-hill skiing. I know we are going to have a lot of hard work."  They professed themselves very  pleased with the support given  them by local groups and individuals. Gibsons council at its  last meeting voted to give them  $100 and Ken and Donna will investigate setting up a twin city with  Gibsons in the area of Nicaragua  they will be visiting.  The local Solidarity Coalition  has donated $100, the Peace Committee, which has been overwhelmingly enthusiastic, has given $250  and the Roberts Creek Community  Association, $200. Discussion in  the last two groups centred around  whether they would be supporting  Nicaraguan ideology if they supported the venture, and the concensus was they would not. Ken  and Donna will be paying for their  air fares and the money donated  will be used for living expenses.  They stressed that on their  return they will be. holding information meetings explaining the  situation as they see it and showing  their slides.  The B.C. group will spend four  weeks in Chinandega and Leon on  the west coast of Nicaragua quite  close to the Honduran border and  close to the port of Corinto on the  Pacific Ocean where the boat project lands. The boat project is a  cargo boat which, last trip, carried  over a million dollars in goods  donated by Canadians for' the  assistance of Nicaragua. Sunshine  Coast groups and residents have  donated generously to this project.  Ken and Donna accept the fact  that there may be some danger involved in their venture but stress  they will engage in no fighting and  have been instructed to obey all  orders concerning their safety.  While the "Cotton Brigade" offers short-term assistance, and is a  gesture of support for Nicaragua,  it will hopefully lead to more long-  term aid in the areas of teaching,  medicine.and nursing.  Individuals wishing to make personal donations to the venture can  send donations to SCCASC, c/o  Peter Baker, R.R. 1, Gibsons,  B.C. VON 1V0.

The Expo '86 committee has  been busy preparing the ground  work to enable its various subcommittees to spring into action,  and it looks as if things are just  about ready to get off the ground.  There are four basic guidelines  which the committee is working  under: It is to encourage community groups to be present at and take  part in Expo '86; It is to raise the  awareness in our community of  what will happen in our community during Expo '86, and what we  should be prepared for; It is to  raise an awareness of our community in travellers to Expo '86; It  is to encourage the development of  community events which will attract travellers to our community  and keep them here once they arrive.  One of the first things which the  committee hopes to develop is a  Central Booking Service for  motels, trailer parks, campsites,  bed and breakfast establishments,  etc. Its intention is to take a detailed report of the facilities available  here to Ottawa in May, and to  begin selling our facilities from  there. The aim is to have a zero per  cent vacancy rate during the run of  the fair.  It also hopes to co-ordinate a  marketing strategy for local arts,  crafts, entertainments, and recreational events, to ensure that artists  always have a good supply of their  wares available and accessible, and  so there is always something for  visitors to do or see.  "There will be lots of people  coming here," siad a spokesman  for the committee. "We need to be  prepared!"  "This is the first time this kind  of co-ordination and co-operation  has been tried around here," said  another. "It may lay a foundation  of co-ordination and promotion  which will work well for us after  Expo '86, too."  Chairmen have so far been appointed to sub-committees as  follows: finance - Art McGinnis;  promotion - Richard Tomkies;  special events - Rob Liddicoat;  fund-raising - Richard Proctor; accommodation - Barry Wilbee;  transportation - John Shaske.  The committees will be seeking  help and support from the community, expecially in the area of  fund-raising. The Sunshine Coast  Regional District has offered to  provide one dollar for every two  raised from businesses and the  community between this April and  the beginning of the fair in 1986,  up to a maximum of $22,000.  Sechelt 0  Parks 1  The Village of Sechelt was last  week officially exempted from the  regional district parks function,  meaning it will no longer contribute to regional park funding.  The regional district parks committee has passed a motion that  parks spending be increased from  1/10 mill to 1 mill.  Eighteen people from various  agencies and institutions gathered  together last Monday to discuss  "Youth Employment and  Unemployment" at a meeting called by Irene Lugsdin, consultant  with the Canada Employment Centre.  Citing statistics for November,  1983, Ms Lugsdin noted that while  the general rate of unemployment  in B.C. was 13.8 per cent, for those  between the ages of 15-19 it was  25.4 per cent, and for those 20-24 it  was 22.4 per cent. Locally the  youth (15-24) unemployment rate  was 21.5 percent.  Because of the current economic  situation, young people are entering a labour market where  employers are seeking people with  both education and related work  experience, the one commodity  young workers do not yet possess.  "Unemployed adults are also  lowering their expectations in  terms of jobs and salaries and are  thus directly competing with young  people for jobs which used to go to  youths," Lugsdin said.  Tom Nishimura, local CEC  counsellor, noted that as  unemployment rises, the number  of applications for training and  upgrading courses increases.  The meeting recognized two  distinct needs for dealing with  youth unemployment: the creation  of new jobs, and easily available  information informing young people of job opportunities and career  training choices.  In reviewing the employment  programmes and services available  through CEC, Ms Lugsdin noted  that the federal government has  allotted $170 million for "Summer  Canada", a two-part, make-work  programme, of which $15 million  will come to B.C.  "Summer   Canada   Works",  which will receive $12 million of  the allottment, makes salaries  available to any employer who will  hire three or more students for the  summer at new jobs created for the  programme. Ms Lugsdin is anxious  to assist interested employers in  working out their proposals and  applications for the funds, and  stressed that the deadline for applications is February 24.  The "Summer Career Access"  programme has $3 million with  which to pay salaries for students  in jobs where they will get experience and in some cases training  relevant to their long-term career  plans.  In recognizing that these programmes are short-term solutions  to the youth unemployment problem, and mainly give work experience, various suggestions were  made from the floor.  Joan Cowderoy of the Volunteer  Action Centre, suggested work-  sharing opportunities need to be  explored more.  Regional board chairman Jim  Gurney and economic development commissioner Oddvin Vedo  both felt we could create new jobs  here using our natural  resources���the shoreline, for  aquacultural and recreational projects; retired people and tourists,  for service industry jobs.  Richard Tomkies, chairman of  the Sunshine Coast Economic  Development Society, gave an  outline of the function of his society, which is to develop a long-term  economic plan for our area and  then to finance proposals which  will further that plan by creating  permanent employment. The society may be able to get $2.16 million  in federal funds over the next five  years which, besides creating  employment, would be spent ih  this community. M  In summing up her conclusion?  from the meeting, Ms Lugsdin fiejt  it would be beneficial to set up an  "Outreach"   programme,   which  teaches   job   hunting,   resunSe  writing   and   "selling   yourself1;'  skills to groups like youths who  find employment difficult. Supporting a long-term economic develop.-;  ment plan for the area, she will  discuss   with   the   employment  development branch regarding the  possiblities in the natural resources  mentioned. Ms Lugsdin would also  like to "capture as much short-  term grant money as possible*?;  and  encourages  employers   who  may be able to create jobs for, or  hire students for the summer to call  her at the Canada Employment  Centre, Sechelt, 885-2722. ?;;  ANTIQUE REPAIRS  Irene Lugsdin of the Canada Employment Centre chaired last week's meeting seeking input and ideas  to deal with "Youth Employment and Unemployment" on the Sunshine Coast. -Fran Bumside photo  INDUSTRIAL EQUIPMENT  JOWE'S  Antique Workshop  Experienced  Antique Restorations  Difficult Repairs and  French Polishing  Binnacle St., Sechelt  885>7467  Sunshine Coast  COAST  TRACTOR  & Equipment Ltd.

"    #4 Coast News, January 23,1984  Guess Where  :ihe usual prize of $5.00 will be awarded to the first correct entry  ifrawn which correctly locates the above. Last week's winner was  Julie Story of Roberts Creek who correctly located the 'Home'  sign as being in front of the residence of Ms Joan Robb on Beach  Avenue in Roberts Creek.  I an tier sought for  community plans  ��� The SCRD planning committee  has recommended that an assistant  "planner be hired until June  specifically to work on the advancement and completion of three  community settlement plans.  Planner Jim Johnstone told the  committee that with two full-time  planners required to handle regular  planning duties, and the third  working on major planning projects and rezoning by-laws, there is  very little time left to work on set-.  tlement plans.  The nature of settlement plan  work requirs much research into  background materials and  unknowns, and is unpredictably  time-consuming. Johnstone replied  to Jon McRae's objection that the  job they would be hiring for lacked  definition. McRae requested planning reports on what would be accomplished in a certain time as well  ; as; progress reports, and "better  guidelines to judge progress"  before he would support the hiring-  ��� Jim Gurney said it was a "big  decision to extend staff. But we  pay lip service to getting the plans  done, then don't give it all we  should.'  ���; Gurney said that goals had been  worked out for each committee of  the SCRD, and it is, "hypocritical  t;6 say we want the goals accomplished and then not give the  resources necessary to attain  them."  Pat Murphy noted that talk  about completing the settlement  plan in his area had been going on  for five years. "Let's get the job  done no matter what it costs and  tire the whole planning department  afterwards if necessary," he stated.  A proviso was added to the hiring recommendation that progress  reports be required and a review  take place in June to determine if  an extension of the position was  merited. The recommendation  passed with only McRae opposed.  .;������".Sean Reid, who worked in the  . planning department last summer,  \viil be approached to fill the position   if  the   SCRD  ratifies  the  Sechelt  X money  X matters  :. i Sechelt council passed two bylaws which took care of financial  rn^tters last week.  ;;" By-law 273 allows temporary  ; borrowing in anticipation of ex-  " pected revenues. As of last Monday, Sechelt has borrowed $70,000  to .take care of business until tax  revenues are received in June.  By-law 274 authorizes entering  into a financial agreement with the  regional district for the financing  ��� of Teredo Street. This by-law, long  delayed because of disputes with  {he contractor, sees the village  making the final payment of  $57,237.93 to the Municipal  Finance Authority, and was passed  with great relief by the council.  Gibsons  x donates  After a presentation by Alderman Ron Neilson on behalf of the  project, Gibsons council voted to  donate $100 to co-sponsor two  local residents who are going to  - Nicaragua as part of a volunteer  aid group from British Columbia.  ; The two Coast representatives,  Ken Dalgleish and Donna Shugar,  will be part of the "Cotton  Brigade", one of a number of  groups from North America who  will be providing social and  technical assistance to the  Nicaraguans.

Members of the International  Woodworkers of America, local  171 will vote this week on whether  to accept the proposed contract  which will see a four per cent increase and an Mmproved pension  plan.  Ed Gill, second vice-president of  I.W.A. local 171, says tabulation  and results of the vote will be in on  Thursday. He said the negotiating  team are recommending that the  membership accept the contract.  The main issues include a 20 per  cent increase in pension plan  benefits for existing retired workers  which will require that the monthly  pension plan deduct .on be increased from $15 to $20. Also recommended is a four per cent wage increase effective June 15, 1984, and  raised to four and one half per cent  June 15, 1985.  It is proposed that the Billings  Letter be reinstated. The reinstate-  nent would ensure that existing  employees not be replaced by nonunion contractors.  Always wear a personal flotation device or a life  jacket when around water. Play it Safe.
