Array LEGISLATIVE LIBRARY     84.2 }  ., Parliament Buildings /  Victoria, B.C.  V8V 1X4  by Fran Burnside  Colin   Beach,- president   of  Coast Mountain Aquasource  Litdi '    ��� Fran Buruide pholo  The ' desirability " of allowing  water from Freil Lake & Falls to be  loaded into tanker ships and sold in  the United States was again raised  at last week's regional board  meeting.  '- A revitalized proposal "to lease  foreshore in Hotham Sound in  order to obtain/water rights for the  purpose of bulk loading of fresh  water.for export" was presented by  Colin Beach, president of Coast  Mountain Aquasource Ltd.  Beach's 155 page proposal, complete with plans,' maps and correspondence, not only outlined his  project but also addressed concerns  previously raised by regional direc -  tors when he first applied for a.  disposition of Crown land in  December, 1982.  The original application was for  30 hectares of foreshore, but the  current one is for fewer than five.  An alternate plan has been completed requiring less than, one hectare for the project/  There are no legal or legislative  restrictions on exporting water to  the United States, as long as environmental and resource concerns  are met. Export permits are not required for transporting water via  tankership as proposed.  An export water licence issued  by   the   provincial   government  would be a term licence, valid from  five to 20 years, and would contain -  a revocability clause subjecting it to. -  termination should a local use be.  found for the water.  The impact of the project on the  aesthetics of Freil Fails, a major attraction to boaters, was of particular concern to the regional  board.  Beach stressed that the works  necessary - a seven foot, six inch  dam at the outflow of the lake, a  catch-basin at the foot of the falls-  and a pipe from the catch-basin to  the loading dock - would not be  visible frorn Hotham Sound  Beach also noted that a 30.3 hectare foreshore lease for log dumping purposes had been issued  within 300 metres of the centre of  the creek.draining from Freil Falls,  and clear cutting of this- site has  "already taken place immediately  above the sandy beach. His project  would require no such tree cutting  in view of Hotham Sound.  The proposal sees the damming  of the lake at night to build up supply, and the release of water during  daylight hours at the rate of at least  , {he normal average monthly flow.  The  high  monthly variations in  iflow would be evened out,  resulting in more water descending  the falls during the summer months, increasing their scenic beauty  even more!  ''" The floating concrete dock  " \necessary for tying up loading  vessels would also have tie-ups for  pleasure boats, plus a faucet and  a hose for washing them down.  There is at present no docking  facility near Freil Falls, and this,  plus   improvements   to    the  T dangerous and slippery trail now  leading to the foot of the falls,  would enhance the recreational opportunities of trie area. .'".'���"  The proposal initially calls for a  , loading-vessel, to be in dock for  several hours once a month, with  frequency hoped to eventually increase to once a week, no more. Its  presence would neither block the  view of the falls nor impair other  uses of the areas, according to  Beach.  A letter from the Council of  British Columbia Yacht Clubs,  representing 47 member clubs, expressed support for the foreshore  lease proposal, and gratitude for  adjustments made to take into consideration previous concerns of  recreational boaters. ���  Beach   also   dealt   with   environmental concerns related to the  : preservation of the marine habitat.  With discharge from the falls  maintained at seasonal levels or  greater from. May 15 until the end  of August, adequate fresh water  supply would be assured for the  regional oyster, larvae habitat.  Letters from White' Pass  Transportation Ltd. of North Vancouver, and Bowkett Chartering  Ltd. of Vancouver noted the  following;  l)The protection  of oyster, beds  could be accomplished by vessel:  operators issuing standing instruc-.-;  tions to Masters to avoid close ap- ;  proach to the area, and a chart-  notation   following  a ��� Notice  tpi"  Mariners. Vessels would not have"  to anchor/ and there would be no  need for excessive propeller distur- ;  bances. The draft of the vessels';  contemplated   would   ensure   a-  substantial difference between the  ship's hull and.the sea-bottom.     \.  2)There would be no need to store  or undertake any fueling opera-^  tions in Hotham Sound. ;";  3)PolIution  regulations   must   be'  followed, and an agreement could;  expressly prohibit the discharge, of;'  any sewage into .Hotham Sound. -.:  4)Most ballast would be discharged. -  prior to entering Hotham Sound, ;  and only sea or fresh water from  clean tanks would be discharged if;  any.  Further   concerns   about .con-rv  lamination from foreign waters being introduced into local  waters-  brought   assurances  from   Beach'  that   any   potential   sources   of ;������.

Last year the prin-'  ' cipals of Gibsons Marina Hotel Incorporated, Act McGinnis and Jon  .McRae, proposed, to council that  they should build and operate a  ��� 350 berth marina on lease from the  town.  The   town   would ��� contribute  $400,000, which was a provincial  lotteries grant, and the federal  government   would   provide   the  ;'dredging required and construct a  'breakwater. The agreement with  "the   developers   was   sighed   on  November  17,   1983,  the federal  government part of the project is  .almost   completed  and   tests  are  about to begin on piledriving for  v the marina floats  Once final draft drawings are  approved construction of floats  and the ramp will begin during the  next-month.  While many of those present fully supported the marina development, questions were asked concerning" the financing of the project,  the' loss Of the free boat launching  ramp and the flushing abilities of  the bay.  The, first .phase of the marina,  which consists of 195 berths,  a  parking   lot,   administration ,  building, boat launching ramp and  park area/must be completed by-  Decembef" of 1984. A penalty of  $115,000 must be paid if the construction is not completed on time.  Frank Braithwaite questioned  whether a bond compnay had  guaranteed payment of the penalty  and Mayor Labonte replied that  the guarantee had "not been requested since the town has the provincial lottery grant money.  The developers must pay  revenue to the town of 15 per cent  over $200,000 per year. McRae  pointed out that because of construction expenses and debt servicing, there will be no revenue for  anybody until the second phase, is  completed. It will take 28 years to  fully amortise the debt on the $1.2  million the developers are putting  into the project which is why they  have been given a lease which ex-  PIojisc Mini to page 12  "Major changes in legislation in  X the next few weeks will drastically  affect everyone in the industry.  I; Former divisions within the iri-  - dustry no; longer matter at a time  .�� like this.. We are facing virtual ex-  i Unction and action is needed right  away." :^ ��� .���:���'���''"���. -'  ." Th��): speaker was George  \- Hewison, secretary-treasurer of the  ^ Unitedi. Fisher men   and   Allied  *' vryal conference* offishentieri in  the Senior Citizens' Hall in Sechelt  last Wednesday. Joining Hewison  on the platform were PM Ray  Skelly. and Conservative candidate  Mike Hicks.  What Hewison described as 'the  gravest crisis this industry has ever  faced' was said to be bringing  fishermen together in unprecedented numbers. ���Threatened," said Hewison, "is our way of  life, our industry, and our communities."  The secretary-treasurer of the  UFAWU said that the recent  Pearse Report oh the West Coast  fishing industry had laid the blame  for declining fish stocks on the  backs of the commercial fisherman  and.that the proposed correction.,  would come out of the pockets of  commercial fishermen.      ��� .  The meeting chairman, president  Garry Russell of Local 21 of the  UFAWU, told the . assembled  fishermen that phase one of the  Salmon Enhancement Program  had been completed and there was  now to be a pause to evaluate it.  Instead Russell called for the immediate commitment of $200  ���million for small stream enhancement for the .West Coast fishery.  ; "We could double existing"  stocks," said Russell. "What we  don't need," he said, "are more  concrete monuments." He pointed ..  to the fact that the hatchery fish  often ate the wild stock because  they were larger at the time of  release.    V  "The enhancement of the fish  ^te*;!^ of- cqm-  ! mercialft fishermen is^a'-i;colossal t  hoax," said Russell. '  Both Russell and Hewison urged  fishermen in attendance to participate in sending a 100-man  delegation to Ottawa in early  February' to lobby 'every senator  and member of parliament on the  Hill'. "We're going to have to conduct a mass-education campaign  with those fellows," said Russell.  MP Ray Skelly agreed that the  proposed lobby was extremely important and said that i:he NDP  would place its 21 offices and .their  staffs at the service. of the  fishermen February 5-9. He  pointed out that a recent lobby by  Ontario farmers had in fact been  successful in achieving the legislation that they sought.  "Coastal communities already  suffering are going to be hit twice  as hard if proposed legislation goes  through." the MP pointed to the  lack of Liberal members of parliament in Western Canada. "Right  how if the Liberals took all of the  "West Coast> fishing boats and burned them in Burrard Inlet, they  wouldn't lose a single seat because-  they don't have any." j;  "We can't afford to lose mqns  jobs," said Skelly. "The livelihood  of the fishermen and the coastal  communities they live in depend on  the lobby. We must make this efj'  .;fort now."  Chief Stan Joe of the Sechelt faf  dian Band regretted that the Band  could not send delegates to the lobby in Ottawa. because they were,  lobbying in Toronto on the same  dates for seif-goyernment. "We  $iye,you our blessing," said CJiief  ,>?Joe:: ���? W&necd;; fish; ij^S^iSf ;i  right' there with you and; we&pjajjj;  pur .own way, but for our other  . commitments."  Conservative candidate Miki  Hicks described Wmself ;as th^  West Cqast fishing advisor to Conservative spokesman John Fraser;  He pointed out that the most recent statistics available saw the US  fishing fleet catching 99 million  salmon, the Japanese 62 million;  and Canadian fishermen just 23  million on the West Coast. .  "Fisheries are not managing the  industry on the West Coast.  Restructuring is needed an4  fishermen must assume the role of  guardians of the resource." '''  Both Skelly and Hicks urged  protection for the vanishing  habitat of the West. Coast salmon.  Skelly said that legislation would  be necessary to protect the habitat;  particularly in light of industrial  developments planned for the West  Coast. "We have a $500 million in;  dustry here which can renew itself  every single year if properly;  managed," said Skelly. "You can't  eat coal or oil."  ��' ��� ���  7,  Pool pioneer honoured  Forty friends and associates-at-  ��� tended a smorgasbord dinner at the  ' Jolly Roger Inn last Friday to pay  ! tribute   to   Shirley   Vader,   the  ' woman who is credited with turning the dream of a pool in Pender  ;Harbour into a reality.  ,   Marg   Gooldrup   and    Robbi  Peters told warm and humourous  -stories of the many hurdles Shirley  Meapt while accomplishing her am-  jbitious goal,' then Shirley added a  -few. of her own while unwrapping a  ^beautiful,  silver   tea   service,  -presented to her by the Pender  *;Harbour Aquatic'Society.  1<   The following is the address of  vRobbi Peters, who has taken over  Trdm Shirley as Aquatic Director.  "���   Ladies and gentlemen:'  Tonight we ��� are honouring a  member of our community. A very  'special person whq has given more  than herfair share of committment  to.-a dream - a dream that has  benefitted our community and  brought a great deal of pleasure  and recreation to people of all  ages; a dream that many people  never thought would materialize.  ;... That dream is now a live reality.  It has become a part of our lives.  The Pender Harbour Aquatic Cen-  ���tre.'  '   I'm going to run through a bit of  early history, as a few of you may  Shirley Vader was fittingly honoured last week for her role in accomplishing the Pender Harbour swimming pool.    -Fran Burner photo  not have been involved or even in  Pender Harbour in" 1975.  Seven years ago the PHAC was  as far away from existence as me  winning the 649 Super Loto (and I  didn't buy a.ticket)'  It was the year our high school  burned down,, and during the process, of planning' and rebuilding  much talk was devoted to future  fire protection, and the amount of  water readily available.  Regional Director Peter  Hoemberg and school boart trustee  Peter Precesky were both in avid  agreement that the school should  have'joint use funds and become a  community school. So local input  was requested.  It was Peter Precesky's suggestion that a water storage; tank  which would protect the new  school building in case of fire could  also provide an excellent swimming  pool for the community. That idea  like 'Topsy', just grew.  Shirley ignited and developed  the idea,'and with enthusiasm and  persuasive skills gathered people  with similar spirit to help her complete that dream. Within.a week of  that first meeting she had  estimates, figures and costs of  similar facilities including capital  costs and operating expenses.  For the first time in Pender Harbour people ' wanted the same  thing!  The referendum drew one of the ���  largest voter, turnouts ever - 72 per  cent   in  favour of building and  maintaining a recreation facility.  This was the first victory! It set  the pace. It also gave everyone connected with the project a shot in  the arm.  Hospital on hold  The board of directors of St. Mary's Hospital has advised the  Sunshine Coast Regional District that there will be a two-year  moratorium On the proposed Extended Care Unit and Services Expansion. ��� -  Working plans for the new wing have been approved, but a request by hospital administrator Nick Vucurevich to tender the project was refused approval by the provincial government,  A letter from Minister of Health James Nielsen, advised "that a  two-year moratorium is in effect (for all hospitals), preventing our  requesting new major construction approvals".  Hospital directors will travel to Victoria in the spring to discuss  the matter further with Nielsen.  "We must findways arid means down the road to get that expansion," said Vucurevich.  No snow removal  Following up on last week's reports in the Coast News, the  SCRD passed a motion by director Ian Vaughan that a letter be  sent to the Department of Highways protesting inadequate snow  removal in the Pender Harbour area.  Director Vaughan mentioned specifically the dangerous inaccessibility of routes leading to and from the fire and ambulance stations, while highways were kept black. He requested that the  Department of Highways make its policy on snow removal known.  Music festival  The Sunshine Coast Music Festival will be held this year in April.  We are pleased to be including Speech Arts in the festival again.'  Betty Keller will be adjudicator.

C< WATER  FR '  Heed their plea  When the 100-man delegation of West Coast fishermen go  to Ottawa on February 5 to lobby the federal legislators the  hopes and support of the rest of us should go with them. The  threat to'.the future, oftheWest! Coast fishery is hot only a  threat to a hardy and historic way of life, it is also a threat to  the economic life of the suffering West Coast communities in  which the fishermen and their families live  The charge made by the fishbrnien that the federal department of fisheries is substituting regulation of the fishers for  adequate management of the fishing resource seems to us to  have some considerable validity. Rejgulation of international  fish-taking on the high seas and management of the habitat for  salmon, must be part of any meaningful attempt to protect the  resource.  Regulation of the international fishing fleets involves protracted and difficultjiegotiations at the international level but  protectionof habita^if rometto^ within  Canadian control and must be addressed without delay. It is  difficult tbdisagree with Gary Russell, president of Local 21 of  the UFAWU, when he calls for the immediate expenditure of  $200 miltiott on j wild habitat enhancement. It is equally difficult to disagree with MP Ray Skelly when he points the finger  at the provincial government and its close relationship with the  forest industries as a major detriment to immediate action on  the creeks of the West^ Coast "which have historically produced  salmon in abundance.  ,-  It should also be noted that prominent scientific spokesmen,  notably^ DavidI Suzuki^ have expressed fears that the millions  being spent on hatchery fish may be building a genetic time  bomb and that such hatchery programs in Oregon have been a  disastrous failure.  The time for action is now and the commercial fishermen  are not only fighting for their livelihoods when they go to Ottawa. They are also fighting for the resource itself and for the  economic life of their communities.  They go to try to educate eastern Canadians on a vital West  Coast subject. May immediate success attend their efforts. If  the, legislators in Ottawa fail to heed their plea the West Coast  of Canada will suffer a grievous blow.  That donation  Let us consider what at first glance seems a trivial matter,  that of the Gibsons council donating a small sum of money to  help the volunteers on their way to Nicaragua. Not the paltry  sum of $100 that sticks in the crop of many citizens, but the  implication that goes with it that the community endorses the  volunteers through its council. Many do not feel this way at  all, and resent that a council vote of two to one presumes to  declare the community in favour of anything.  It is noted that this motion to donate had no prior consideration by aldermen, the volunteers being in a hurry and  there was money anyway in the budget to give away. Council  might well develop policy for the sake of its good reputation,  at least, to bring no motion to table without prior consideration by aldermen���and mayor.  What is required now is to rescind the motion and for  aldermen to contribute to this cause in person, as many of us  have already done.  *.���"���'" ���- George Copper  SYEARS AGO  RCMP were on the alert  throughout the Sunshine Coast  for escaped convicted murderer  Sean McCord.

Yet, within a  few years after the first train arrived at the Coast in 1886, the  company could sum up its services with the words "Span the  World". Before time signals, CPU clocks represented standard  time across the nation, and citizens looked on the railroad watch  as an instrument of unfailing accuracy. With only a tiny population, Canada could boast the greatest transportation system on  earth. "Empress" ships brought silk from 'the Orient to Vancouver,, and all other rail traffic gave way to the crack CPR trains  that carried the precious cargo to New York. To fulfill the .terms  of its charter, the CP built the Esquimau and Nanaimo Railway,  and linked it to the mainland by means of "Princess" ships. By  early in the twentieth century, Canadian Pacific ships were not  only giving service to main British Columbia ports, but were also  making calls south into Puget Sound and north to Alaska. When  radio had come into popular use, each of Kelly's nightly broadcasts sent his best widhes to passengers and crew of the good ship  "Maquinna", the West Coast's symbol of indestructibility. A  hundred years after surveys for its first lengths of rail began, the  Canadian Pacific continues as remarkable, a phenomenon as it  was when it was built with "prunes and snoose and overalls".

Maryanne's  Viewpoint  Luxury retreat helps thinking?  by Maryanne West  Earlier this month the School  Board agreed, with one dissenting  voice, to hold a retreat at the International Plaza Hotel in North Vancouver, as has I believe been done  in previous years. ;  The maverick Trustee was Jamie ���  Stephen who argued that the  retreat should be held ofuhe Sun- i  shine Coast", not only so that the ,  money could be spent in the, com- ���  munity, but so that savings could  be made by'Trustees being able to ,  reVurft^bme^^fi^f^^^       ��>  over nine million dollars in taxpayers' money; it is the employer  of approximately 400 people; the  educational overseer of currently  2838 ' children; and the  community's manager, of,'.real  estate holdings" and 'equipment  valued in the millions:, .' -*.

But I don't buy the  argument that it is essential to go  off to*North Vancouver just to ensure privacy and an objective  perspective. Surely the spouses of  our elected members are also  responsible people who would ensure that Trustees were not disturbed except -in cases of exceptional  need? And in such cases they'd be  contacted in North Vancouver too.  I doubt thai owners of local  establishments who pay local taxes  will be overjoyed to learn that  Trustees pan be lured away so' easily. But what really concerns me is  the mindset which believes or can  be brainwashed into believing, that  in order to think clearly and objectively, one'must meet in congenial  surroundings with a support  system of good wining and dining  laid on.  *4rif htsVsomething, all;1c#^6f:  Government seem to have made a  habit in recent more affluent times.'  Perhaps they always have; perhaps  it's copied from big business which  likes to wine and dine its clients on  expense accounts.' I know it has  become a regular practice, but that  doesn't make it right.  Surely it is this sort of government spending which the general  public wishes to see curtailed in!  these times of restraint.  1 doubt, the taxpayer would object were it demonstrable they were  getting their money's worth, but]  I'm not persuaded that the  amenities of the International!  Plaza will produce clearer heads,;  more lucid and constructive;  thought, than could be achieved in;  the School Board office or a school*  staff room. It has been my ex4  perience that if the discussion isj  vital and exhilarating, one just*  doesn't notice either time or|  ,; physical surroundings. It is only!  when the discussion lags that one*  becomes conscious of stiffness*  from a hard chair or the fact thau  one is hungry. J  If it can be proven that comfort  produces higher thought processes^  why aren't we providing armchairs  and lounges for the students in  school? I  Conservative voices raised  American policy causes alarm  by Ivan Tenlchoff  January 21, a Reuters dispatch  from, Washington stated that  Ronald Reagan was considering a  pre-emptive strike against possible  kamikaze air raids on the US fleet  off Lebanon. This was confirmed  on Sunday by no less an authority  than secretary of state Schultz.  Nothing could better point out  the absurdity of the US position in  Lebanon. The US troops went in  as 'peace keepers'. The 'peace  keepers' are.now considering protecting themselves from possible  attack by attacking first  themselves. Thes military presence  of the US, far from helping bring  about peace, is increasing the tension and is adding a new dimension; the possibility of big-power  confrontation.  Just who are' they thinking of  striking? An Islamic terrorist  organization, the Islamic Jahad,  claimed responsibility for the truck  bombing which killed many  marines, but none of the terrorist  organizations seem to have air  bases or airplanes. The threat  seems to be aimed at Syria, though  the ideology of the Iranians would  be closer to that of the Islamic  Jahad. Syria has Russian SAM  missiles and Russian advisors so we  may soon have a situation where  Americans are bombing Russians  and Russians are shooting down  American planes.  A look at the last two issues of  Scientific American may help explain why any high tension.situa-  tion is far more dangerous at this  time than at the time of the Cuban  missile crisis. The December 1983  issue raises the question, "are the  US nuclear weapons intended  primarily to prevent a war with the  USSR or to fight one?.'.." and con-,  cludes.that the Reagan administration has shifted "the emphasis of  US policy from the former purpose  to the latter."  The January 1984 issue discusses  the  increasing  instability  in   the  nuclear balance, the trend towards  a launch on warning policy. There  is a discussion of the effect of high-  level nuclear blast on the control of  missiles, times involved, finally,  - mathematical models of missile  control systems were fed into computers for analysis, and the best  game plan for a nuclear war turns  out to be a pre-emptive strike.  "Whatever the declared  national-security policy might be in  a peacetime, the incentives appear  to impose on responsible military  commanders in both the US and  the USSR potentially overwhelming pressures for outright preemption under intense crisis circumstances when the prospect of  an unavoidable war would be facing them...  "The weapons systems that most  exacerbate the problem are not  those with advance accuracy whose  offensive capabilities are  analytically best understood but  rather those that affect the timing  and co-ordination of strategic  operations. The American Pershing II intermediate-range missile  in Europe, for instance,  significantly reduces the reaction  time available to the Russian command system."  The Pershing I! in Germany  need only six to seven minutes.to  be exploded over Moscow. According, to the article, approximately  two minutes are required to detect  the firing; further, during the first  three minutes of flight, the answering missiles would be more  vulnerable in the air than in silos  underground. So a launch on warning strategy now gives the Russians about two minutes to decide^  (The Russians and Americans'  might do well to put spies in Bill  Bennett's office, for according to -  the Sunday Sun, January 22, he  will have at least 30 days notice to  move into his bunker in Nanaimo.)  The Sun, December 19, had an  article which gives some insight into Reagan's thinking or lack of it.  "President   Reagan   has  Been  musing about the end of the world,  a biblical Armageddon, but said in  an interview he wouldn't give up  even if the end were near.  "There have been times in the  past when we thought the end of  the world was coming, but never  anything like this." In the next  paragraph he worries whether, his  bullet-proof vest will make people  think he's getting fat.

And I am dumb to tell the crooked rose  My youth is bent by the same wintry fever.  The force that drives the water through the rocks  Drives my red blood; that dries the mouthing streams  Turns mine to wax.  And I am dumb to mouth unto my veins  How at the mountain spring the same mouth,sucks.  The hand that whirls the water in the pool  Stirs the quicksand; that ropes the blowing wind  Hauls my shroud sail.  And I am dumb to tell the hanging man  How of my clay is made the hangman's lime. '  The lips of time leech to the fountain head;  Love drips and gathers, but the fallen blood  Shall calm her sores.

It is true that the fallout  would be so thick that if you were  left alive "and not blinded^ you  would not see the sun for weeks.

Finally, 1 would just like to ask  Mr. Bennett and Co., what about  the rest of us? While our leaders  might find the children expendable  we, at least, want our kids to live  and flourish.

I have been given to understand  that several complaints were received about the grammatical errors  contained in this column. After  reading the January 16 edition, I  have   to   agree.    However,    if  newspapers ceased to publish  because of poor grammar; I doubt  if there would be many to read.  As a minority, it's a Catch 22  situation for French-speaking people in this province. When you  don't get to practise speaking and  writing correctly, you don't improve. Be that as it may, the person  responsible for writing these articles has been changed and'  hopefully the quality will improve.  Once again, congratulations.

_-. ,"by Peggy Connor 885-9347;
The meeting for grade 11 and 12
students and parents/gtiard"ans
held at Chatelech on Monday,
January 23 was indeed informative.
Some of the news was disappointing especially for those planning post-secondary education;
universities have many cutbacks,
the cost has gone up; all in all
students are going to have to work
harder to achieve their .goals.  r\
Principal June Maynard toldjt
like it is; she also explained about
the government exams the Grade
12's will be writing this year ihat
will.be 50 per cent of their score
and 50 per cent of their school
grades will make up their total?
Len Marchand, the school
counsellor, spoke on other choices
open to students, suggesting thjjy
select a program to make them versatile so they will be ready to go into something else if they can't enter
the field they most_ desire.

One outstanding complaint that
cropped up at the Marina information meeting, January 23 -the toll
to launch small boats. "Not
moral*', said one, "to take away
what we've had for years". And
from another, "Why not take
some of that lottery money and put
in a free launching ramp at
Headlands?" (Applause)

Halfmoon Bay Happenings  Recreation election coming  ���I  s  3  %  by Ruth Forrester 885-2418  RECREATlbN PLANS  ,-/; The Halfmoon Bay Recreation  Commission will be holding its  Annual General Meeting on Monday evening of February 13. Time  is 7:30 p.m. and the place is the'  Welcome Beach Community Hall. '  Election of officers will take place  and it is hoped that a vice-  chairman will step forward.  t  The vacancy will be caused by  the fact that hard-working Pauline  Clark is likely to be leaving the  area. She will be missed by this  group. It would be good to see a*  large turn-out for this meeting to  indicate that there is lots of support  and new ideas for activities for the  coming season.  It is always refreshing to attend a  meeting which is packed with enthusiastic arid positive people. This  was the case at a meeting last week  of the Tetrahedron Ski Club. It  showed what. widespread interest  there is-in the possibility of some  ski facilities in this area, and if this  meeting was any indication of  future prospects it looksgood.  It was of particular interest to us  because for so many years my husband and I were involved in the ski  business and some twenty-five  years ago were part of just such a  group of enthusiasts who had a  dream arid who saw that dream  become a reality.  I  I  lit spite of requests to Gibsons council to have them removed,  these rocks still block Frank Braithwaite's access to the waterfront on which he pays taxes. The rocks were dumped to prevent  further erosion of the roadway, built over the sewer pipe on what  he contends is his property. He and several neighbours in the bay  area are taking legal action to determine who actually owns the  waterfront and the sewer roadway. -judithwiison photo  rience  A  Call us today to book your party and receive an extra  special hostess gift    We'll supply pur gourmet coffee  and other treats. .

Here it is,  t folks; Shop Locally! I realize that  ��you can't change people, they only  ^change themselves, but here's an  �� overview of the situation as I see it.  ��   Many, many people from the  �� Harbour  drive  all  the  way  to  ��� Sechelt to shop and they say its  ^cheaper. I don't believe this and ,  gwhen I have challenged them on  \ this point (with comparative ads for  instance), the actual reason turns  out that there's just so much more  /to do, see, and eat in Sechelt. I'm  t in full agreement. However, I think  ���What in order to avoid what is hap-  j-periing right now (the pharmacy  closing),, everyone has almost a,  community responsibility to shop  locally. Times are difficult and the  'merchants need all the help they  can get or else prices will be higher  $ and selection reduced.  ,_*_   .If more people shop here, then *  .cjnore clerks, stockers, sales and ac-  r " counting'positions come open, and  fWtherefore fewer working folks have  t ,to drive to Sechelt everyday to  serve Pender folks busy shopping'  d^wri there! Merchants up here  VIH bend over "just about,*"'double t  7 |o (meet   you   with   competitive .  ' prices. If you want an iron, you  can probably get one cheapest in  ���"���"Vancouver, but the next 'time you  _ need some convenience item from  the hardware store or  appliances  section of the plumbing and electrical store, will they be there?  Think seriously about that.  I feel that the pharmacy was vital  to our area; sure the prices were a  bit high, but then they were not  part of a chain where so much of  the profit goes tot he anonymous  owner. When you shopped here,  you directly supported Marg and  Shelley, who in turn also supported  the rest of the local merchants. To  be sure Marg is looking forward to  the rest. She might surprise a lot of  people with her real age and-she  could have collected a pension a  while ago if that's a hint. Nevertheless, she kept hoping someone  would buy the business, who  would if the profits only looked  Jio-hum due to a population who  found it "convenient" to shop in  Sechelt. Now, as of March 1, there  will be no one to get up in the middle of the'night or after hours (as  happened many times) to fill a  prescription for someone in pain or  for a wee baby. It certainly won't  be "convenient" now for us if and  when we need it.  When I go to Sechelt I love to  look around; I buy a yogurt that I  cannot get here, an interesting loaf  of bread*sometimes, and if they  have something exotic in the fruit  or vegetable department, 1 might  try it. I like to eat lunch at Pierrot  fqrPebbles"Ff f have enough money,  (haven't' been there for a while!),  and look at the^clothing and kit-  chert stores and�� maybe , the  jewellery too, but that's it, I buy at  home.

I realize that I  could gp %on and on and -never  change some peoples' minds, but if  you care about where you live and  , the other people near you, who  don't have either time or money tO'  go to Sechelt, then just try shopping at home a bit more. Sure, may  be it takes a bit more effort, but it  takes even more effort when the  stores just aren't around any more.  Enough said...  There's a new Community Club  executive.

COMMUNITY NEWS  Last week I was invited to attend  the installationof officers of the  Pender Harbour Clinic Auxiliary. I  went and was most impressed,  although the ladies kept apologizing for not being as organized as  they thought it should have been.  Isabelle Ralph was acting secretary  as Marilyn Stone couldn't be there.  Kay Birch is the retiring president,  Ruth Kobus was installed as' president in a nice candlelightirig  ceremony carried out by Mrs.  Olsen. Rose Mueller was installed  as treasurer and other officers were  Iris Griffith, Vi Tyner, Mrs.  Cawsey, Mrs. Rankin, and Nei  Willington.  These ladies are community  workers interested and involved in  community service and happenings. I got a lump in my throat  when they kindly remembered Jean  Rousseau and was pleased to hear  them discussing being involved in  other community meetings,  although they are in need of more  volunteers to work at the Bargain  Barn.  Thank you ladies for inviting  me: The night was dark, cold and  freezing but I had good feelings all  the way home and promised myself  I would volunteer some time as  soon as I have wheels again.

West Sechelt school  - The ^ Sunshine v Coast ,Regional  District has given its approvalfor  School .District "No. 46 to construct a' "Community Use" addition to West Sechelt Elementary-  School, -  The addition would comprise a  general' purpose room,, kitchen,  storage room and necessary access, to a total of 118.56 -square  metres.  The capital cost of the addition,  to be borne by the regional  district, is estimated at $90,606,  plus fees and contingencies. The  project was approved by the  SCRD in 1983 and included in its  budget then, but costs have risen  since that time and an adiitionai  sum of approximately $10,000 has  been included in the 1984 budget  to cover the balance of the current  estimated total.  The firm of architects chosen by  the school board to design the addition is Killick Metz, the same  Vancouver firm that designed  West Sechelt Elementary School.  The appearance, and quality of  t  .*<���  ��� construction is to be consistent  _ with the original building.  Working- drawings and cost  estimates have been approved by  the school board and by the  Ministry of Education at the  technical level, and must also be  approved by the SCRD before  final submission to the ministry.  While approying Draft Addendum No. 7, which briefly outlines  details of the addition, Gibsons  ��� alderman John Burnside rioted  that the school board always; uses  the same firm of architects to  . design its buildings, and suggested  that more consideration be given  to hiring or at least requesting  .submissions from local architects,  Mo try-and keep some ; of this  money in the community.    .;;  Sechelt Mayor Joyce Kolibas  approved the idea of a community  use room, but felt plans including  a full kitchen with full apph'arices  were, top elaborate, and top, much  J money was being spent on''the' Addition. Hers was the only vote  contrary to approving the draft  for the addition.  r  JURIED PROVINCIAL  EXHIBinpN  The Assembly of B.C.

In 1959, he manages to  land a fairly steady spell of work,  laying floors at the new B.C. Electric (soon to become the B.C.  Hydro) building. His sayings from  this job enable him to enter a partnership with two fishermen as a  dogfish buyer. "We lived in a tent  pitched on the deck of a 62-foot  scow", Jack Bird remembers.

Sr  by Dee Cee  i did not expect, nor did I  receive, what couid be described as *  a hero's welcome when I returned  from that first trip to, Japan. There  were no bands playing at dockside  and the atmosphere at home was  even frostier than when 1 had left.  Things were not going well out at  the restaurant on Kingsway so I  only stayed around long enough to  arrange for its sale and then, shortly after the New Year, went looking for another ship and the opportunity to get away from all the  arguments and discord that marred  the domestic scene.  I -soon   found   the  means  of :  escape but, as it later turned out,  my choice was not altogether a"  happy: one.   The   S.S.    Lake  Kamloops   (Western   Canada  Steamships) was oyer on the North ���  Shore taking on a full cargo :of  creosote ties destined for Calcutta,  India and had I an inkling of what  was to follow I would have jumped I  ship before she even left the dock.  It wasn't too bad at the commencement of the voyage while we: ,  still were in the cooler climes, but.;  as we sailed southward and long  before we reached the Malacca  Straits, and Singapore, conditions  on board became almost intolerable. Not only were all the  holds jam-packed with ties but  every available space topside ,was  carrying the same in the form of  deck cargo. After a while the *  fumes and stench from .these  creosote-soaked timbers not only  travelled throughout the length and  breadth of theship, but permeated  everything in it and the closer we  got to the Equator the worse it  became. Out clothing reeked of it  and even the food we were cooking  and serving had a noticeable 'tarry'  taste, so it was to be expected that  the crew were not long in complaining, but there was nothing we.  could do about it. Our cabins were  stifling and so was the galley and  there was little relief out on deck as  these damned pitch-soaked ties  were everywhere.  Whether.it   was   due   to   the  creosote or -the increasingly high ���  temperatures or the combination  of both, I don't know, but to add  to my own personal misery I  developed a severe case of prickly-  heat; a skin eruption caused by inflammation of the sweat glands.  After, leaving Singapore behind  and entering the Bay of Bengal it  became steadily worse and eventually, due no doubt to the continuous scratching to relieve the  maddening itch, fended up by getting blood poisoning in my right  leg. It started around my ankles  and before a few days elapsed it  had spread upwards arid I was-in  serious trouble. We carried no doctor aboard but we did: have a  medicine chest and a chief mate  with sufficient knowledge of first  aid to administer the penicillin. I  hayen't a clue as to how many  million units he. shot into me, but  in saving my leg it has made me.  allergic4o that drug forever.  Well, we finally arrived at  Calcutta but our miseries were far  from being over. The dock's were  crowded with vessels of all shapes,  sizes and ��� nationalities and there  was no .berth available, so we had  to drop anchor out in the Hooghly'  River (one of the many mouths of  the Ganges). There we stayed for  almost two weeks. I have never  been able to determine which was  worse, the fumes from the ties or  the malodorous smells arising from  the muddy waters and, when the  wind was in the right direction,  wafting from the shore. I still  remember, distinctly one particular  early morning when we were returning to our ship after a night of  revelry ashore. We were in one of  the native bumbo'ats and I was feeling more than a little queasy due to  the amount I had drank during the  evening. Sitting in the prow, 1 happened to glance overboard and the  first sight was the sodden, bloated,  dead body of one of India's sacred  cows moving sluggishly in.the current on its slow passage to the sea.  This was soon followed by another  corpse, that of an old, emaciated  lady with her long, grey hair spread  out over.her naked body like a  shroud.

I was also concerned that a product not beating the  name of Its maker would be of Inferior quality. I even wrote  a Shop Talk on the subject expressing my negative views in  connection with No Name brands.  Now, after testing sdme of the products myself, and seeing how weU accepted they are in general, Ihave to accept  the fact that I was wrong and, therefore do niy bit to  publicize the fact that the No Name (yellow labelled) products are good and are somewhat cheaper.

Where a choice of brands is offered, 1  see people quite frequently checking through them all until  they find the one that is least expensive.  - In years past,' when in attendance at Consumer Cooperative meetings', I have heard the argument that less  brands of the same thing would lessen the cost of doing  business in ever so many ways,���less inventory, less stocking, less shelf space, etc., etc. Ideally, less cost of doing  business, then the item should cost less to the consumer. We  have always tried to offer a wide choice in all products. At  "any rate, we are steadily adding more and more No Name  brand items. If this means having to cut out some other  brands, then we may have to do it.  You can save with No Name and House brand (private  label) products.  *^"i&l  &JT��t,  ."WiB^asL.  **e,  *V*:  ���?Vc  U '&  \r���  5*5  Shop with confidence.  Our prices are very competitive.

The word  generic in"drugs denotes a drug name not protected by a  ;trade/aame.^.:v;i;.::;:';;::^-'.;--'..  I talked with John Shaske of Howe Sound Pharmacy abut  this matterand he advises me that there is a substantial saying in buying generic drugs. An example he gave me was the,  generic name of acetominophen. This is put out by Tylenol,  .he says, at $4.19 for 100 grams, and by Frost under the  name of Exdol at the same retail price. Acetominophen,  plainly bottled is sold for $2.99.  There are many ways in which one can save to fill other  needs.

Way,  ^       North Vancouver, B.C., V7J 3H5  wmtmtmmammmaam  Slams -education minister  "- -7=  by Maryanne West  The Minister of Education  first offered the School Board the  money saved by the teachers' strike  if .the; Board came up with an acceptable way to make up the three  lost school days. Needing the  money and caught between a rock  and a hard place, the Board reluctantly complied with the Minister.  His deadline and requirements  were met by abolishing the  teachers' Professional Development- days.  The Minister having since reneged and kept the money, the Board  has received a letter from Brian  Butcher, president of the Sechelt  Teachers Association, asking the  Board to set aside three, non-  instructional days to be used by the  teaching staff for professional  development.  Recalling the extra meetings, .the  deliberations over various options,  the time expended by" trustees and  staff, Trustee Jamie Stephen expressed himself "incensed by the  Minister's  attitude".   He  added  that his,  "faith and confidence  have been severely shaken".  Trustee Stephen said he is in  favour of re-establishing Pro-D  days, "as the teachers have assured  us they will'make sure the students  will cover the curriculum" and  gave notice that he would make a  motion to rescind the December  decision at the next meeting.  The official letter from the  Minister was also received at this  meeting and on Trustee Stephen's  suggestion that it would be  "morally wrong to foil over and  accept the letter without  comment" the Board agreed to  send a strong letter expressing their  disapproval of the Minister's tactics and their lack of confidence in  , him, with copies to other school  boards:  Other School Board Business  The work experience course for  grade 11 arid 12 students was approved as a pilot project for the  current semester.  The accreditation schedule for  Elphinstone Secondary had been  extended to May and the Ministry  Coast Gardener  of Education asked to select the six  member visiting team.  Letters to the Ministry of Health  from parents and the School Board  have had results. Dr. Lugsdiri  fromthe Health Unit reported that  a vacancy in the nursing staff will  be fi!led_ so that service to the  schools can continue. -  ���MB 01  Fire in  Considerable damage was caused in Langdale last week to a house  occupied by Leif and Kim Bryhn  and their nine month old son, on  the Chutter property in Langdale.  . The fire apparently originated in  the area of a chimney to which  both an electric stove and a wood  heater were attached.: The age of  the house and the unusual roof  construction . caused some problems for the firemen.  The kitchen was destroyed and,  the rest of the house suffered  smoke and heat damage.

Every .four . years, re-pptting  should be done: This can be. very  tricky, because of the thorn's pre  sent on most.cacti. Wear thick  gloves; a handy tool to use is a pair  of canning-jar tongs which may be  used to gently grasp the cactus  when moving it to its new pot. .  Clay pots are excellent, because  they are porous and provide the  good drainage cacti prefer. The soil  used must drain exceptionally well,  half potting soil and half sand is a  good mix; with the addition of  some 'vermiculite, about one  quarter of the total volume. Add a  spoonful or two of ground-  limestone and another of bone  meal. Use a stick to tamp the soil  down around the cactus.

"We ask for year-end reports,  costs of runs, all kinds of financial  information, and we gent  nothing," said Shaske.  "We don't know what's going  ���on and we "can't find out.

Despite losing by 20 points in  Tuesday's game against Max  Cameron, the Chatelech Eagles  may be playing their best basketball of the season, according to  coach;Bob Corbett. In Tuesday's  game at Chatelech, ^senior boy's  basketball Eagles were able to hold  the powerful Max Cameron 'AA'  team to a slim one point lead at the  half^  Earlier in the season Max had  beaten the Eagles by 55 points but  in two subsequent * games, that  margin has been narrowing steadily. Coach Corbett attributes his  team's improved play to a more  aggressive defense and a steady improvement in outside shooting.  While the game was supposed to  be a warm-up for a scheduled rematch this Tuesday against  Elphinstone, that game was subsequently postponed because of exam week at Elphie. The game has  been re-scheduled for next Tuesday  February 7, at 7:30 p.m. at  Chatelech.

Then  after Shirley logically explained  how well it was going to work, they  thought about it.

You may have thought the opening of the pool would be the end of  a four-year-long project.. It was  just the start.  Shirley's organizing mind went  to work - training staff, setting up  programs and generally running a  small business with a budget of  around $45,000 per year.  Three .years ago the Pender Harbour Aquatic Society was formed,  composed of members of Area A.  with an active interest in the pool.  Since that time a superb fitness  room and sauna have been added,  making the pool a first-class facility.  Shirley took on the job as  Aquatic Director - supposedly  part-time only, but Shirley never  worked at anything part-time - it's  100 per cent or nothing.  , She never asks or expects from  employees moire than she herself is  willing to give. Believe me it's  sometime hard to keep up with her  energy. >  Now after seven years of total  commitment to the Pender Harbour Aquatic Gentre, Shirley is untying the apron strings so that she  can get on with her own life.  Ladies and gentlemen, I offer  you a toast to the many talents and  indomitable spirit of Shirley Vader.

"We are front end  loaded as far as revenue is concerned; there will be no short-term  gain," explained McRae.  When asked how the $1.2  million would be raised, McRae  replied that the financing would be  done by ownership shares; "it is in  place," he emphasized.  Considerable discussion centered  round the fact that the public boat  launching ramp is virtually un-  useable because of the dredging  and that once the new one is built  as part of the marina, a fee will be  charged for its use. McRae explained that construction of a  "drastically improved" boat ramp  at a cost of $30,000 is the first  priority of the marina project.  "You've taken away what we  once had and now we have to pay  for it,"-said one speaker. Another  added that "morally and possibly  legally you can't take away  something we had".  A suggestion from George Bodt  that the council could take $30,000  out of the lottery grant money and  build a free public boat ramp  brought applause from the crowd. -  McRae explained that "it is not  that simple; it is all part of a plan  approved by the government���but  we can look at it."  The impact of ramp fees on  commercial users such as locally  operated sea trucks, which load off  the ramp on an almost daily basis,  was also discussed. The developers  said   they  could   possibly  make '  special arrangements for such  users.  The marina development is seen  by the developers as the "catalyst"  for the 'destination resort' hotel  which they have planned for the  same area of the bay. The hotel  development is at present postponed because of financing difficulties.  Hans Penner stated that he believed the hotel construction plan was  for "PR purposes only. I thought  it was one agreement; we will be  left with a marina paid for by  public money and operated by  developers."  McRae explained that over  $100,000 has already been spent on  the hotel. "It is very much a reality  when the market place is ready to  accept it," he said.  Local users expressed concern  over priority in allocation of per-  mament moorage space. Council  proposes to have a sign-up week  for taxpayers, to take first choice  but whether they will use a  previous sign-up list. set up a few  years ago is debateable.  The flushing ability of the bay  was questioned by some speakers  who envision it becoming' "a  lovely cesspool" as boaters disposed of raw sewage. McRae assured  them that the new breakwater is  designed to allow maximum 'flush  of the bay. The manna will have  disposal services for holding tanks;  there will be plenty of washrooms  and transient boaters will be strictly  supervised.-  United Church news  On January 25-and 27 congregations of Gibsons and St. John's.  United churches held annual  meetings, when reports on the life,  and work of the churches in 1983  were received and considered. In  his third annual report Rev. Alex  Reid writes: "God has truly blessed  our work; new members have been  received, new. friends made, new  goals accomplished and new 'visions set." He tells of the expansion of. St. John's in Davis Bay  which has "done more than simply  give members additional space for  worship...The new presence has  become a visible sign tb all on the  Sunshine Coast that the church is  here in their midst, alive and well."  He believes that the church in Gibsons reflects the church as a  people-place with full opportunity  to acknowledge 'God.  Mr. Ray Fleming, Chairman of  the Pastoral Charge Official  Board, states that the United  , Church continues to flourish under  the ministry and leadership of Rev.  Alex Reid. This is clearly reflected  in the 1983 statistics which reveal  33 adults joining the church, 20  children baptised, 23 couples married and 24 funerals. Fleming feels  that the Charge's contributions to  Missions, which was 21 per cent  over its budget target,, is another  indication of ministry, outreach,  and concern in the congregations.  During the month of February  the minister���will be absent, on annual vacation and study leave. Services at both St. John's and Gibsons will be. conducted by two  United Church Deaconesses, Jessie  Oliver and Nora Neilson, both of  whom retired in' 1983 and live in  thearea. Miss Oliver takes the first  three Sundays of the month and  Dr. Neilson will be in the pulpits on  February 26. This is an opportunity for the community to become  better acquainted with these two  residents whose experience .in the  ministry of the church stretches  over many years. ���  ."' The World Day.^of Prayer is  slated for Friday; March 2, with  the host churches Calvary Baptist  in Gibsons, and St. John's United  in Davis Bay. This annual  ecumenical gathering of representatives from all churches is.particularly significant in .1984 as people throughout the world unite on  the same day.in prayers for peace  between nations and good-will  among all.  Those .who drive past the new St.  John's are aware of stained glass in  the circular window above the  main entrance.

' -JudHhWIhon photo  Pulp lockout  looms ahead  The Pulp and Paper Industrial  Relations Bureau says it will "be  forced to issue lockout notices" on  January 30 to the Canadian Paper-  workers' Union and the Pulp and  Paper Woodworkers of Canada if  union leaders are not back at the  bargaining table by that date.  A lockout could go into effect 72  hours after notice was given, or  anytime thereafter. Industry claims  it wants a ' settlement, not a  lockout, but unions are dragging  out negotiations in the hope of getting a better deal.  "We will not favour one union  over ^another," said Donald A.  Saunders, chairman of the PPIRB.  ''Wehaye reached agreement with  thi? ".ntemational ;Woodw6rkers;bf  Arnica and we cannot/ and will  ���not, give more favourable terms to  the pulp unions."  Union negotiators have a caucus  " meeting scheduled for February 13,  and so far see no reason to meet  before that time.  "This situation has been going  on for nine months now," president of CPU Local 1119, Steve  Holland told the Coast News. "I  don't see what difference another  two weeks should make."  Holland also commented that  the CPU was "a separate entity  from the IWA, and "what they  might accept isn't necessarily good  for us."  The local president added that  every mill in the province is running at full,capacity, with production levels at record highs.  W-*'  ?&6astN~ews,~3amary 3GJ1984*  13.  by Judith Wilson  - - When your stove stops ^prkihg  v on the day you ha\ef20 jeiuii^,  coming for dinner;��� when ypur  washer stops draining and turns the  bathroom into a lake; wheri;your  freezer motor dies just as ydu.have  filled the freezer with a side j of  beef, who do you call for help?' -  Chances are it will be John Har?  rison, who has been servicing appliances and sellingparts and,appliances in Gibsons since 1973. ;  But don't try and phone him at  his old premises on Pratt Road. He  and his wife Ruth are now  operating their business in a brand  new store on Highway 101, opposite Peninsula Transport, in the  Seamount Industrial Park.  John's roots on the Sunshine  Coast go. back well beyond' 1973. '  ,He was raised in Roberts Creek,  having moved there in 1922, and  after leaving Mt. Elphinstone  school in Roberts Creek, he worked as a logging engineer for 25  years. He made logging history as  the driver of the first steel tower,  known as the Madill Spar, used by  MacMillan Bloedel on the "Vancouver mainland. It was in operation at St.;Vincent's Bay. in the early sixties and had been made by  Jim Madill of-Vancouver Island,  The, tower took the place of the  old spar tree and performed- the  same function of dragging the logs '  by lines into the landing area where  they were loaded on the trucks.  John operated the tower from a  cab at the side. "A vulnerable position in the old days," he recalls  describing a brake line which snapped and put a big dent in the roof  of the cab.  "And we didn't wear hard hats  then, only 'bone dries'," he said.  "They were made out of treated  canvas material and were supposed  to keep out the rain."  Although  both  he  and   Ruth  ml  ��� agreed' it was:'*a ��ob$,ijfe; - very -v  healthy", the time,Jcame,,to stay .  home;/ John: .had . taloen^a: cor- \  respondence coursein retrigeraiiqn  from the Chicago Vocati'ohai~ In- .  stitute in the early 1960s and decided to expand;his knowiedge of this  field by "spending two years learning the servicing.trade at the B.C.  Vocational Training School.  The vocational course didn't  teach him to deal with some of the  rather ancient appliances, such as  belt-driven fridges that he encountered here in the early years, of  business. "You certainly learned a  lot in the field," he explained.  Servicing remains a! complicated  business although for a different  reason these days. "We have to  deal with so many makes and imports, particularly Japanese'," he  explains.,.X< ���':v- X' .;iaXBX- "'''���������::  After operating his business in ���  his own house on Pratt Road for  two years beginning, in 1973, he  moved into the Omega Building jn  Lower Gibsons for a few years, and  then returned to his .original  premises. .:���,... .:;:'....;   -  As the years; went by he; expands v:  ed from his ^original', business of !  selling   parts   and   servicing   ap-  pliarices to"stocking and selling new  appliances such; as fridgesv stoves  and   freezers.

V';' f.:X:. 1XX' ''. ;���'":':'.';'  "We.had bepn kicking the idea  of a hew buildihg around for a  while and whenrthe opportunity  arose we decided to gamble," John  said. The gamble has seen them  move into a new building which he  and Ruth were able to design to.  suit the;rieeiis of i|hKbusi^^si.rThe:r  building will be;expahdeij later to  include offices upstairs.  Although they ''have never, seen  business this slow' '.their optimism  in   moving   into,  new   premises,  reflects their faith in their business,  in   their   customers   arid   in   the  ecohpmlc%rn:arouhd they expect  to see soon pri.the Coast.  /"Tijeycpncedethat "wewouldn't  .hav^}l'made.-jt if we had just  started'"'1' arid praise their many  long-time customers who continue  to make ''theirs" a growing  business. .'���.'"-..  .One of the innovations John is  introducing is a micro fiche viewing machine which has a screen like  a TV. "If we haven't got the cross-  reference number for. a model, we  just' look up.the model on the film  'and find the part number. Once we  get all the microfilm cards from all  .the companies it will speed up our  service considerably;/We; can also  keep in stock the mpre:talled fob  items."  !  . 'IXXXXXX-'--' ' '  To celebrate their new opening,  John and Ruth are offering special  introductory prices on all major In-  glis appliances as well} as ^a free  draw for a-$50 bill, which was won  by Sandra Davies.and free coffee,  and doughnuts. The range of appliances they offer include stoves,  fridges; washers 'arid ���dryers*  microwaves, dis'h washers and  ; fre^zersvThe store will also become  . .a/.>Varrahty depot for Maytag ap-.  piiarices":"'���'.'-: r  Chances are if you have a problem with an appliance it will be  John you'll phone for parts, and  for advice.

Ruth explains it quite simply,  "We are happy in our work arid we  like our customers."   .  IWA to sign  new  Local members of the International Woodworkers -;bf America  .voted last week; 6614 per cent in  favour of the proposed contract,  said Ed Gill, second vice-president  of IWA Local 1-71. The total  ballot for the province was; 68 per  cent jri.favour of acceptance.';  The package includes a-fpiiV per  cent wage increase, effective June  15, 1984, and raised" to four arid  'one half per cent June 15, 1985.  The Billings Letter will be reinstated, which protects workers  against being replaced by nonunion contractors. Retired IWA  workers will benefit from a 20 per  cent increase in the pension plan.  Ed Gill, a member pf the IWA  for 38 years; said, ''I'm quite happy about the pension plan���partly  because I'm going to retire next  month."

The  pool's cash float was stolen. The  theft was reported on the 21st.  Police are still investigating.  The wharfinger's shack on the  Gibsons Government wharf was  broken into on the 23rd; a quantity  -of marine flares was taken. Police  believe that those were the flares  used' by some suspects in connection with a complaint received  from the Kiwanis Village area on  the same day. Prowlers were seen  setting flares off in the North Road  area in the early morning hours of,  the 23rd and a flare left in a mail  box did cause some damage.  A break and entry was reported  from South Fletcher Road on the ���  25th. Entry into a private residence  was gained through a window.  Nothing was taken from the house  as it appears that the suspects were  scared off.  On the 26th, a vehicle parked on  the Government Wharf in Gibsons  ���15. >T  I  i  1  was broken into and $350 worth of  cassette tapes were stolen: Entry into the vehicle was gained by forcing  a window open.

I  I  %  Firemen have a  Last year was an unusually busy  9ne for the volunteers who man the  Gibsons Fire Department.-Recently  released figures show that for the  year 1983, there were 374 calls  received by the department. Of  these 84 were for actual fires, 87  were wrong numbers, and 102 were  for information. Aid calls totalled  15; these calls involve use.of the  department's Rescue and Survival  unit to deal with such emergencies  as cardiac arrest or extraction of  occupants from cars damaged in  accidents.  As well the department received  26 test calls, seven false alarms, 14  wrong -district calls, four  miscellaneous, and 35 no answers.  Their average for fire calls was one  call every 4.34 days or; seven calls  per month.  This average was increased considerably in January. ,By the end of  the third week of January, the  department had attended nine calls  including a major house fire, a rash  of chimney fires and what turned  out to be a false alarm in Gibsons  harbour when the dredge working  there did a routine burn-off of  gasses, resulting in a spectacular 30  ft high plume of flame.  The firemen are working hard  finishing off the new fire hall on  North Rd. and are slowly getting  moved in. The new fire truck,  which was damaged in a recent accident, ���is'.at Anderson's Engineering in Langley being repaired and it  will be back in a month...;.'.  The fire department would like  to draw the public's attention to  new amendments to the National,  Fire Code concerning smoke detec-'  tors. The change requires that at  least one smoke alarm be installed  in each existing dwelling unit. They  must be located between each  sleeping area and the remainder of  the dwelling unit.  The National Research Council  of Canada states that "the code  change recognizes the proven performance of smoke alarms in  reducing loss of life in fire.  Statistical evidence indicates that  the risk of such loss is halved in  homes equipped with smoke  alarms;    .

Mail your entries to Box 460, Gibsons,  to arrive on Saturday. I^ast week's winner was G.L. Boutillier of  Vancouver, who correctly located the gate on a private drive off  Garden Bay Road.  SCUD public  works stalled  Provincial goverment refusal to  approve any borrowing by-laws  until a study on regional districts is  completed could jeopardize water  supplies both, for St. Mary's  Hospital and for fire protection on  the Sunshine Coast.  ���Part of the water intake on  Chapman Creek was destroyed  during recent heavy floods. The  creek provides the only source of  . water for the hospital, as well as  for many residences, and works  superintendent Gordon Dixon has  proceeded with temporary repairs.  The intake, which dates back to  1929, needs to be completely  replaced. t .  The-publie works-committee is  ��� continuing to seek a site for a water  reservoir in Roberts, Creek, which  is particularly necessary for adequate fire protection in that area.  "We. can't just sit around and  .wait for a year," said director Jim  Gurney./'We've already lost two  . years on our capital works project  waiting for Victoria. We have to'  continue as though we're going to  get the money."  -  Director Vaughan concurred.  "Already there will be a three to  four per cent increase in costs to  our taxpayers -because of the  wait," he added.  The public works committee also  passed a recommendation that five  private citizens experienced in  public works matters be asked to  sit on the committee to bring addi-.  tional knowledge and expertise to  the complex decisions which must  be made. The citizens would" have  the same voting powers on the  committee as the elected representatives.  newborn goats were bom at the Kleindale farm of Darryl and  June Percival where the mystery predator was shot last week.  ���Jane McOuat photo  Continued from page 1  ballast water would be sampled  and analysed for, substances which  could be deleterious-to the local  marine environment of Hotham  Sound prior to any discharges being made. If the proposed ballast  contained any toxic substances it  would be treated by methods  deemed acceptable to. the intergovernmental-agency called the  (water) transplant Committee, the  Marine Resources Branch and the  Department of Fisheries and  Oceans.  There has been no government  objection to the flooding of 55  acres around the lake which would  result from the construction of the  seven foot, six inch dam: Debris  and old logs wouldbe cleaned out  of the lake:  Coast Aquasource Ltd. would  have to pay for forest lost or  damaged in the flood area, mainly  immature second-growth conifers,  estimated on the basis of current  map information to be worth approximately $58,000. Jhere may  be an additional ;fee "determined  for productive forest land lost.  There are no records of any fish  stockings in Freil Lake, or plans  to undertake them. While the  Ministry of the Environment has  no objection in principle Mo the  flooding, officials wish to visit the  area to determine the presence of  cutthroat trout and 'their  dependence on the inlef>outlet  streams for their spawning requirements. There are no records  of any fish being caught in the  lake.     :.'.;.��� \  The Environment Ministry also  feels there would be no conflict  between Beach's proposal and an  inactive trapline in the area, and  "little, if any, impact oh local fur-  bearing populations. There is no  record of any hunting in the area  in files going back to 1977.  A letter from B.C. Hydro has  indicated that there in tio intention to use Freil Fails or its creek  for power generation. While it  may offer a good small hydro site,  its small size and high cost in an  area already served by the power  grid makes it unsuitable for  development.  The Sunshine Coast Economic  Development Commission did not  meet in time to comment on this  proposal for last Thursday's  regional board meeting, but  Economic Development Commissioner Oddvin Vedo gave his personal comments and analysis of its  economic impact.  Direct benefits to the regional  district would be construction  jobs, lake clean-iip jobs, and Mm-j.  proved access to Freil Lake;  especially for fire protection  reasons.  According to Vedo,longer term  employment would be generated  to maintain arid service the ,  facilities, and to assist with docking arid loading of transport ships.  Sea planes, water taxis, tugboats,  coast pilots and other related services ' would be required. ' The  docking facility, available for  public use at all times except "when  a boat'is loading, would provide  safe berthing and fresh water for  pleasure boaters. A safe trail  maintained to the foot of the falls  would itself become a tourist attraction.  .  Vedo noted that, lease improvements would provide a further tax base for the SCRD, and  the water licence tax would accrue  to the province.  "All in all, we can see no  negative economic impact in this  proposal, while there appears to  be substantial positive benefits.'  Vedo further stressed that, to  maximize benefits to this area, we  should ensure that the Sunshine  Coast is prominently presented  and promoted in the marketing  campaign of our water, via brand  name and logo, advertising artwork t slogans and labelling.  A note of humour and irony  was introduced into Mr. Beach's  presentation to the regional board  when Area E alternate director  Dick Derby asked Beach if he had  tested the water in Freil Lake*  "I logged in there in the late  '50s," said Derby, "and two guys  were taken but to the hospital  after drinking from the lake. We  ended up packing our water in  with us."   :  Derby explained that someone  had had a shake claim there 30  years earlier, and cedar bolts lying  on the lake bottorn never  deteriorate arid cause cedar  poisoning.    ���- ��� -  Area A director, Ian Vaughan,-;  also mentioned geodyasis, ~a  dysentry caused by the presence in  the water of beavers, which are  becoming very populous in lakes  in this area. '  Be^ach noted that the water had  undergone four different tests,,  and had been found 'acceptable}  for drinking water without further  treatment It would, however^  undergo an ozonation ���'������'process^  now preferred to fluoridation; bi|t-;  that would be the responsibility q��  trie purchaser. : f";  in response to a question frorhy  regional board chairman... Jim  Gurney, Beach indicated that his!  ��� proposal has met favourable a4-'  ce'ptance from everybody it hajs;  been referred to except the  regional board. r      ���'"?"���  Recognizing that Beach hair!  "left no stone unturned" in deafc  irig with expressed concerns, the;  board will again consider the ad��  visability of his proposal. ; ���     j;  ~^~~~ MOW ���; ���  "THE QUTTER TRUCK*'  5" Continuous Gutters  (Bus.) 885-3711     (Res.) 885-2305  Also:  Vinyl Siding, Aluminum Rails & Soffits  Awnings .& Patio Covers  ACIFIC HOME PRODUCTS LTD.

'XX'' X"  Gibsons alderman ' John Burnside, who had attended the conference, "noted that one of the  thrusts of the delegation would be  to push for the protection of the  salmon habitat and enhancement '  of wild stocks. At the present time  the salmonjd; enhancement pro-"  gramme is on hold for re-  evaluation.' /���!  "I think this board should do  everything it can to help fishermen,  *or we won't have any," stated area  A director Ian Vaughan.  "If the fishing industry goes, a  lot of coastal communities go with  it," added Burnside. There are well  over 100 fishermen's families here  on the Sunshine Coast.  .The SCRD will be holding a  special regular meeting next Thursday in order to deal with this matter before the delegation leaves.  "We intend to confront every  MP and senator on the Hill," said  Russell. "We are upset."  WHICH COUGH SYRUP SHOULD I BUY?  There are two main classes of cough syrup-^expectorants, for  a loose cough and antitussives for a dry, hacking cough.  Expectorants      aroused to relieve coughs that bring up phlegm.,  These products-(eg. Beriylin* , Expectorant�� , Robitussln�� )   <,\ \  stimulate the flow of mucus. The removal of phlegm eases the cough.  Coughs with phlegm should not be supressed with antitussives.  Antitussives are used to supress a dry, hacking cough. They  do not cure a cold but wilfallow you to get a good night's sleep.  These products (eg. Benylin�� or Robitussin�� ) as. well as  others, are also available with a DM syrup as well. Codeine  and DM are equally effective, however DM has the advantage  that it does not cause drowsiness. .���,->.  Remember. If after 2-3 days the symptoms become more intense,  the throat is very painful or you cough up a lot of phlegm,  please consult a doctor.  8  \  A predator which had killed  livestock in the Kleindale area of  Pender Harbour, was shot and killed last week, but no one is quite  sure what it was.  Darryl and- June Percival  operate a farm on Garden Bay'  Road across the road from  Roosendal FarmsV They recently  lost a pregnant goat to a predator.  The kill showed all the sign's of be:  ing a coyote kill and conservation  officer Jamie Stephen set traps in  the area. .        .  When Darryl Percival checked  the.traps some time later he found  nothing caught but a lot of tracks  in the vicinity. He followed the  tracks, found, the animal and shot  it. And that was where the mystery  began. .",���';'./���������-���  The animal was a good-sized,  female canid, weighing about 60  pounds, which is larger than  coyotes normally get, especially  females. It had, however, all the  coyote markings. Besides its size, it  had also hefty paws and conservation officer Stephen speculated  that it might be a female wolf with  some growing still to do. It could  also be a dog-coyote cross or a  dog-wolf cross.'  The skull of the animal has been  kept in hopes of firmly identifying  the type of predator that had attacked the Percival goat.
