 Crew���!*1;'  M  Y  I  LEGISLATIVE LIBRARY 84.2 !  Parliament Buildings /  Victoria, B.C. /  V8V 1X4 ;  ���*-i*.,..,- ,-f^t.j.  Compromise possible  Pulp talks improve  Hopeful sounds seem to be coming from the bargaining table.for  the first time since the lockout pf  pulp workers by the Pulp and  Paper Industrial Relations Bureau  (PP1RB).  "Fairly postive" was the way  Canadian Paperworkers* Union  Local 1119 (Port Mellon) president  Steve Holland described talks held  Saturday afternoon, at which CPU  president Art Gruntman recapped  negotiations from day one.  "It was our turn to talk,"  Holland told the Coast News,  "and we recognized that both sides  have proven we can be tough, but  we're not getting an agreement."  It was the first time the necessity  for compromise by both sides was  actually spoken out loud.  Industry's chief negotiator Dick  Lester thanked the unions for their  presentation, for the first time.  PPRIB negotiators confirmed  their final position. They will not  negotiate any further on money  matters, nor will they negotiate on  length of contract.  "They are tied to their position  of three years," said Holland,  "and they won't negotiate on  anything that will cost more  money."  The joint caucus of the CPU and  the Pulp and Paper Woodworkers  of Canada (PPWC) hope some  movement can be started by  negotiations on non-money items  like seniority, recall rights,  preferential hiring, retraining and  contracting out.  The two sides agreed to "call a,  truce" to negotiating through the  media.  "We'll be providing no more  entertainment for the media," said  Holland.  He confirmed that Local 1119  negotiators will be returning to the  coast this Tuesday, February 28, in  time for the CPU general membership meeting at 7:30 p.m. in the  Gibsons Legion hali.

At Gibsons Council  Sewer and unemployment  by George Cooper  The question period for visitors  at the Gibsons council meeting last  Tuesday, February 21, touched on  three quite different, issues.  One property owner who  believes his boundary will be adjacent to the addition to the sewage  treatment plant, said, "You are  moving the plant away from one  set of houses, which is good for the  owners and giving my property the  nuisance of noise and smell.".  Council did point out that- the  ��� treatment plant is not moving from  Stewart Road, but that the additional pond or tank will be further  away from Stewart, up Charman  Creek. There was some uncertainty  as to the location of the boundaries  of the questioner's property.  "The   engineers   are  onjy   in-.  terested in the mechanics of the  plant and its location, and not in  .the effects oh people nearby," said  the questioner.  ''Well, they certainly have to consider gravity,"  said the mayor, "but. we will certainly have another look at the site  with the engineers." The sewage  plant is most offensive when over- '  worked, and it is hoped the addi-.  tional   tank   will   alleviate -this  nuisance, the council pointed out.  While  in or on  the topic of  sewage,   information   was   given  council of the letting of the contract for the first phase of construction of sewers for the bluff or  Georgia Heights, work to start by  April 15. The owners of the two  houses recently built below Skyline  will be much relieved to learn that  the sewer is coming and they can  officially occupy their new homes  very soon.  Another question from the  visitors' chairs concerned the outdated By-law 128 dated 1957 which  outlines council procedures. ''You  are meeting illegally," said the  questioner, "since you now meet  the first and third Tuesdays where  the governing by-law says every  other, Tuesday, and your time of  meeting has been changed but not  by by-law." "The by-law is under  : review and will be up-dated," said  council.  ��� Another visitor spoke at length  on.the provincial budget's ignoring  unemployment. No motion on the  matter was brought to council, but  Alderman Neilson indicated that  he would be bringing the subject  up at the next council meeting.  Bay Road between Prowse and  . Dougal   will. become part of the.  ��� marina parking lot and will be closed to through traffic, by a by-law  given    thr'ee    readings   at    the  ��� February 21 meeting.  What was-  the  Brakstad  residence  and  the  house next to it will disappear in  the next few weeks as the shore ���  development of the marina gets  underway. Minimal bids have been  received for a shed and one house  in this area^ but at least such bids  .will, reduce or eliminate some of the  wrecking   costs ' involved.   The  model of the new marina ashore  and on the water can be seen any  council meeting night to give those  inquiring a reminder of what the  place will look like.  ; Concern   that   barge   landing  facilities are going to be slow to  come in the form of the new launching ramp while the former launching ramp is now ruined by the  dredging was voiced in a letter  from Tangent Enterprises a company owned by Fred Mason and  John   Reynolds   which   provides  barge  service   between   Gibsons,  Gambier and Keats. Low summer  tides will hamper sport boat launching   too,   they   said,   while  everyone awaits the new ramp.  Where sewer frontage tax will remain unchanged this year, council  is raising water frontage tax to 30  cents a foot from the former 20  cents.  A public hearing will be held on  the matter of re-zoning agricultural  land in the village of more than one  hectare to allow a second, mobile-  type home to be set up.' This  change is being made in response  to a landowner's request for accommodation for a hired farmhand.  A letter from residents of Davis  Road supporting council in its opposition to the highways ministry's  plan to extend Sunnycrest to the  south of Highway 101, shows their  concern regarding noise.  Wedding bells will soon ring for Sechelt Indian Band Chief  Stanley Earl Joe and teacher Lori Velma Paull.

Neilson gave notice ai the last',  council meeting that he would be  bringing recommendations on the  matter to the next meeting on  March 6, to which the public is invited.  In conversation with the Coast  News, Neilson said he is "working  on a criticism of the provincial  budget," and he wants to be able  to "propose something constructive locally in terms of jobs."  ' "We need to let the provincial  government know the crisis we're  in here on the coast," he added.  Neilson,. a member of the  Economic Development Society,  invites anyone with ideas for actively dealing with unemployment  to contact him at 886-3936.  s>*l  ** "lift <t << *���",  jsr  v.*.  ~_r**  . _5c-��-  ' jr  i  :.'.;.'.y  Local girl, Barbara Williams, whose acting career started back iii;  1971 with the Driftwood Players, has hit the big time with al  vengeance.

Federation of Labour and asked that IWA president Jack Munroe be  removed from his position in the federation.  In a night letter sent Friday, the CPU claimed that Munroe is not  abiding by the federation's own policy on picketing, and has advocated violence on the picket lines by suggesting it might be impossible to avoid "scuffles".  Nurses donate  Local nurses Bev Godkin and Gayle Montgomery appeared on  television, channels 6 and 8 at noontime last Sunday, February 26,  presenting a cheque for $6,397.18 to the Variety Club Telethon on  behalf of the second floor nurses of St. Mary's Hospital.  Over the last year the nurses have held raffles, car washes, bake  sales, "shooter" sales and dances to raise this money to help crippled children, and well exceeded their goal of $5,000. Coast News, February 27,1984  Let's hear it  The point has been made by many other commentators but  bears repeating: the budget brought down by the B.C. government is notable chiefly for its refusal to acknowledge that there  is a problem with unemployment in this province. Finance  Minister Hugh Curtis did not use the word once during his  budget presentation, yet in many parts of B.C., including the  Sunshine Coast, unemployment has reached crisis proportions.  There may still be some diehards who believe that in its  obsession with its budgetary deficit the Socred government is  taking us along the path to a bright new future. That conviction is not shared here.  If there was one thing that we thought we had learned from  the Great Depression of the 1930s it was the supreme importance to our economy of consumers with money to spend.  R.B. Bennett, Calvin Coolidge, Herbert Hoover, et al, were  men who were determined to balance their budgets whatever  the cost. They ended up taking more and more money out of  the pockets of the consumer until the circle of recession  deepened and became the nose-dive of depression.  This is not to suggest that a full replay of the 1930s is on its  way but it is sure evidence for the student of economic history  that the government esconced in Victoria is doing nothing but  making things worse: This rich province is lagging behind virtually every other province in the country in terms of economic  recovery." The forests are being suicidally neglected because of  the provincial government's refusal to match reforestation  money with the federal government.  After years of cutting social services and throwing more and  more people onto unemployment and welfare, the Socreds'  donation of almost half a billion dollars to the B.C. Railway  seems like a joke in the worst possible taste. Forget the labels  of left and right. If anyone out there can make a rational case  for what Bennett's boys are doing we'd like to hear it.  Henry's visit  The visit of Henry Kissinger to Vancouver provoked a  demonstration and a wave of savage criticism of the Vancouver city council for voicing their opposition to the visit.  There may be a case to be made for the rights of free speech  and free assembly, but that Kissinger is a man with an evil  record is beyond question.  This is the man who orchestrated the mass Christmas-time  bombing of non-aligned Cambodia at the same time as he was  being nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize; this is the man  who orchestrated the overthrow of a democratically-elected  government in Chile with the assassination of the president  thrown in for good measure.  There is a chilling amoral quality to Kissinger which led one  prominent Canadian politician to describe him as 'evil incarnate' on national radio recently. If you are wondering why  such a man provokes violent passions we suggest you do some  research on the smooth Mr. Kissinger.  5 YEARS AGO  , Sunday, March 4, 1979  will mark the occasion of 50  years as an incorporated  municipality for the Village  of Gibsons.

So, too, late  nineteenth century immigrants found that, despite the seemingly  untouched condition of the wilderness into which they moved, someone had been there before them. James Cook, except for a landing at Nootka, kept well off shores unfamiliar to him. Later,  though, working from this.! central harbour, Eliza, Narvaez,  Galiano, and other seamen explored and charted sections of the  rainforest coast. George Vancouver dared not move his ships until  he and his crews had explored ahead in small boats. But, despite  every precaution, both the "Discovery" and the "Chatham"  were pushed against submerged reefs in open northern waters.  With care, succeeding mariners could thread their way through  coastal channels by means of Vancouver's charts, by using sounding lines, by memorizing" natural navigation guides, and,  generally, by mooring their craft at night. Only after more detailed charts were produced from naval surveys carried on by George  Richards and his crews of the "Hecate" and the "Plumper"  beginning in the late 1850s, however, was regular travel along the  North Pacific .coast made tolerably safe., Fish canneries, mills,  logging camps, mines, and the communities that grew around  them could not have evolved without charts of the water and  surveys.ofthe land.

Events since then-have indicated  to my satisfaction, at-least,.that the  present' government has little  understanding of, or respeqt for  democratic traditions. That there is  a great danger here I do.not doubt.  I told the- young man in the  parking lot that we would soon be  dividing along lines of those who  supported- the democratic system  and those who would subvert it.  I was reminded of the conversation by a piece I read in the pamphlet "Peace News" being produced locally. It quoted the Tri-Lateral  Commission, that shadowy group  of super-industrialists who meet in  regular enclave to arrange the  economic affairs of the world to  their satisfaction, as being of the  opinion that there was 'the danger  of an excess of democracy' in the  world.

It means: that'without  blood being shed a government can  be changed when its behaviour in  power is no longer satisfactory to  the bulk of its citizens.;  The modern world Ms painfully  replete ��� with examples of the. opposite;   most ���'���. recently   of   death"  ��� squads  in  Central America .and ���  Argentina where people can  be  taken  in  the  night .because  the.  government' does not: approve of  their views, and be tortured and  killed.

Conservatives should be in the forefront  of the battle to defend our  democratic traditions, not leading  the attack on them.  The glimpses we have of our  federal house reveals to us elected  representatives for whom it is the  norm to behave like adolescent  boys when the teacher is out of the  room. Their exchanges consist of  series of smart-alecky retorts and  obfuscations which can lead only  to the loss of respect for the institu-  bvjoan Robb  ,j Tjpday as; we fortify ourselves  against trie lingering February chill,  and encourage ourselves with signs  of spring, two or pur friends are  picking cotton for free in the  sweltering tropical heat of  Nicaragua.  More intense though, than the  sun, will be the experience for them  of being among a people whose  daily reality ��� that of a desperate  struggle for life itself ��� is virtually  inconceivable to us-on the Sunshine Coast, even in our times of  hardship.  Ken's and Donna's departure  has generated a healthy discussion  of events in Central America; and  of bur connection to themi Having  had the good fortune to be part of  a study tour to Nicaragua a year  and a half ago, and having been  very involved in Central American  support work, I believe that the  North American public generally  has a very hazy and distorted view  of our neighbours not so very far  away.  February 13 ends this year's Ten  Days for World Development, a  nationwide   joint   development  education    program    of   the  Anglican,   Catholic,    Lutheran,  Presbyterian, and United Churches  of Canada. Their theme again this  year  was  "Models  of  Development, with a Focus on  Central  America". Their reason, stated last  year and reiterated this, was  "because the people of Central  America have so suffered under  the forces of underdevelopment  as to epitomize the plight of all  Third World people. They have  experienced   colonialism   and  neo-colonialism.       Their  resources have been extracted to  make  others   wealthy.   Their  land has not been available to  them lo feed themselves. They  have never been allowed to accumulate the surplus necessary  to   provide   themselves    appropriate education and  adequate medical care. Their hopes  are. always being ground between the stones of East and  West. Christians among them  who espouse the cause of the  poor asre being persecuted for  their faith. Education and ac-  ' tion with a Central American  focus are education and action  for a Third World people who  particularly need our solidarity  at this juncture of history.'JmvM  M i::Last/ weekend,; in \ Vancouver a?  part of trie Ten bays program, I attended a conference called "Central America: A Time for Action".  Also present were some 140 people  from more than twenty church and  support organizations in-B.C. The  keynote  speaker   was   Mrs.   Pat  Hines, an American Maryknoll lay  missionary working in Nicaragua.  There are volumes.of compelling  documentation available (I would  be      happy      to      provide  bibliographies), but I would like  here to focus on eight common  mistaken theses about Nicaragua:  1. Often heard: "Central America  is the arena of an East-West struggle."   -     ���   "     '      '  Fact: The peoples of C.A. have experienced extreme poverty and exploitation for decades at the hands  of dictator after dictator. Their  struggle grows out of their depriva- '  tion and even the RAND Corporation has advised the U.S. State.  Department and Defense Department that "the conditions for rural  insurgency cannot _ be readily  created by even determined bands  of...guerillas", "Hunger is not a  conflict between East and West."  2. Often heard: "Nicaragua,  threatens the national. .security of  the United States."  Fact: Nicaragua is an impoverished  country. 80 times smaller than the  U.S. and has 90 times fewer pep- .  pie. To suggest that it poses a  military threat tp-the United States  MsMaughableM  3. Often heard: "A-civil war is  underway in Nicaragua."  Fact: Popular support for the'San- :  dinista revolution, isoverwhelming  .��� for the obvious reasons that  Somoza was ampngsfMhe- most  brutal dictators; in human history,  and that this government is for the  first time in decades truly attempting to* meet basic needs such as  tion of democracy on the part of  the electorate.  . We are accustomed to being lied  to. We expect it. We are accustomed to the. blatant, practice of  patronage and handouts from the  public purse. We expect that, top.  The practice of democracy is being daily discredited by the practitioners. Meanwhile against it dark  forces are beginning to be at work  who see it only as a barrier against  their infinite privilege and their  freedom to loot and plunder  without regard to human cost.

Those fighting the Sandinistas are the former National  Guards of Somoza who tortured  the population��� a force set up,  organized, trained, equipped, and  directed from 1927 until the present by the U.S. (Franklin D.  Roosevelt said, "Somoza may be a  son-of-a-bitch, but he's our son-  of-a-bitch.")  4. Often heard: "Nicaragua is a  pawn of the Soviets and Cubans."  Fact: The total dependence upon  the U.S. during the last half-  century of Somoza rule is fresh in  the minds of the people; they are  extremely jealous ' of their new  Nicaraguan independence and are  non-aligned. Although she is suffering economic blockading,  Nicaragua's trade with Western  Europe and the U.S. at present  doubles that with all of the socialist  countries combined. Cuba and the  USSR have provided material and  technical assistance, but the U.S.  has refused to do so, and has influenced Canada to give so little  that private citizens last raised  more than three times the amount  of government aid to Nicaragua,  the U.S. may in fact be forcing  Nicaragua into the Soviet bloc.  5. Often heard: "There is a  totalitarian dictatorship in  Nicaragua."  Fact: Nicaragua's form of government    may   arguably   be   more  democratic  tnan  our  own,   par- ���  ticularly when literacy and educational levels are considered. The  Council  pf State,  the legislative  body, is comprised of 7 political,  parties,    5   private   enterprise  organizations, and representatives  of all mass organizations including  7 labour organizations, churches,  women's, and youth organizations.'..  The series of reforms carried out in  the past 4'/2 years ��� the literacy  campaign,   massive   health   pro-;  grams, and judicial reform, have  all been democratic actions with  wide public participation and sup-.,  port. National elections are to be*  held in 1985 and a draft electoral,  act is now being debated in the;  Council of State.  6.

In my capacity as Chairman of  the Board of Trustees of St.  Mary's Hospital 1 feel compelled to  respond to the letter signed 'Attending Physicians' which appeared in  your February 20 issue.  - Firstly, let it be clearly  understood that the Board of  Trustees is fully aware that smoking in the hospital is a contentious  issue, but be assured that the  ���Board is attempting to address the  problem on an ongoing basis.  Secondly, the Board is composed  of lay people and no attempt is  made to debate the statistics  presented by the group of ^Attending Physicians' as to the effect of  smoking on both smokers and  non-smokers. The facts would appear to speak for themselves.  However, before judging this  situation, the genera! public should  be aware of the following points:  1) There is no federal or provincial statute which.prohibits smoking in hospitals.. 2) St. Mary's  Hospital cannot impose a complete  smoking ban on a unilateral basis.  3) St. Mary's does ban smoking in  certain designated areas and addw  tional non-smoking areas are being  considered on an ongoing basis. As  an example, smoking is no longer  carried out in the Nurses' Day  Lounge and it is to the credit of the  personnel concerned that this was a  voluntary action. 4) The hospital  exists to provide service to all  citizens and so long as attending  Skookum  Mark Guignard says...the  SKOOKUM FITNESS SENSATION  IS ON...more and more people are buying  SkookumMars and trucks, you'll notice them  wearing The Fitness Workout Sweat Shirt.

It is my hope that the general  public will appreciate the Board is  faced with a Catch 22 situation,  but that under the circumstances  the expenditure of funds to close in  the proposed smoking areas is  justifiable for reasons as set out  above.  G.J. Lewall  Chairman of the Board  St. Mary's Hospital  Down with smoking  Editor,  As an individual who suffers  from asthma and finds it aggravated by smoke, 1 would support the public statement made in  the February 20 edition of your  newspaper by the attending physicians of St. Mary\s Hospital in  Sechelt. I am in complete agreement with their proposal that taxpayer money not be spent on providing isolated, smoking areas at  the hospital. Indeed no smoking  should be allowed anywhere in any  hospital.  Perhaps the civic leaders of our  town, village and regional district ',  should follow the lead, of the  municipality of West Vancouver in  declaring that no smoking be  allowed in any public area on. the  Peninsula.  A, Muir  Doctors praised  Editor  Three rousing cheers for the doc- .  tors in St. Mary's hospital.  I wrote a letter to the Board last  month as a volunteer worker in the  ECU station that I found it  obscene that there should be smoking anywhere in that beautiful  hospital.  I do not allow smoking in rhy  home, and have not lost any  friends - even smoking friends  -over the years.  Let's all get behind such  dedicated doctors and let St.  Mary's lead the way for others on  this life-saving crusade..  Jean Clarke  Danger in bay  IMJitor  My sister and I live in the Bay  area and we are very concerned  about the sudden drop and depth  of the ocean in the. Bay, just a lew  feel out from the. houses along the  waterfront, since the dredging for  the marina. One of the men  estimated the depth at nine feci.  We are all concerned clown here  as we have grandchildren and  many other visitors in the .summer.  As it is now. it would be too  dangerous for children- lo play on  the beach.  Perhaps the depth could be  graduated. 1 expect lhe sudden  drop is to accommodate, pleasure  craft, such as sailboats etc., as they  turn in the Bay.  Now that the beach has disappeared, i,1c beautiful mallard  ducks and geese will have no place  to forage. But I suppose that's progress!  We grew up on the waterfront,  so we know the dangers. \Ve are  not just two old hysterical women  complaining. All the neighbours  are concerned.  I hope you don't become so busy  with your new job, that you can't  spend as much time with the Coast  News.    It's   excellent.  Marie Scott  Mr. Stuart Hodgson  BC Ferry Corporation .  Dear Mr. Hodgson:  The efficient loading of the  Queen of Coquitlam in Langdale  depends on more than the building  of a double-decked loading ramp.  While it is true that loading  vehicles onto the ferry will be much  more efficient, off-loading will remain at the same slow pace.  Anyone who... has experienced  heavy traffic knows that the bottle  neck is at the end of the parking  lot, where the two exit lanes.merge  to the one lane west on highway  101.  In order for the proposed double  ramp to be fully utilized, money  must be spent by the highways  department to. make either a new  two-lane highway (the Gibsons  bypass) or another lane west from  the. parking lot to the road split at  Hopkins Landing.

On page five you displayed a  photograph of one of the exhibits  from the Gibsons Fair. This event,  along with a similar one in Sechelt  two weeks earlier, was sponsored  and organized by the Interagency  Liaison Committee, not the Sunshine Coast Community Services  Society.  The Interagency Liaison Committee   is   composed   of   broad  representation   from   not   only  member   agencies   of   Sunshine  Coast   Community  Services,   but  also   a   wide   variety   of   other  community-based and government  social service agencies operating on  the Sunshine Coast.

Joan Cowderoy  Chairperson  Interagency Liaison  Committee.  Editor,  I thank you sincerely for the  good coverage of the two recent  meetings of the Sechelt and District  Association for Retarded Children  at the Achievement Centre. I  would like to clarify a few things  from the February 20 issue of the  Coast News, if I may.  In reference to the opening  paragraph and a later one, the  newly elected executive have hot  brought in any changes. We were  not yet four weeks old at the  meeting of February 16. The complaints of the membership, had  they cared to take a good look at  them, were related to decisions  made by last year's executive. The  record of the meeting reveals that  the member who vocalized on  "autocratic manner" and "muzzling" rose and spoke nine separate  times. The past-president who  claims for himself active membership, had not attended a meeting  for eight months and neglected t6  say he had resigned. The correspondence he makes reference to  was not constitutionally presented  and was therefore not legitimate  for that meeting. What really is his  purpose?. '.  This community needs to bp  aware of the Achievement Center  as an important resource filling a  special need in this place, and that  with yet untapped potential.        *  Support it. develop it, don't let it  and the handicapped it was intend"-  ed to serve become objects of con1-  tention.

Because of the way the house was  .entered, and because our dog  would probably scare off someone  trying to get in, we knew absolutely  m whoever did it was someone we  knew and had been in our house  before.

The service this year was written by the women of Sweden and is  based on the story of the  Samaritan woman at the well.  The service is at 2 p.m. and there  will be tea afterward at St. Aidan's  Hall. AH are welcome.  POSTS IN  Hurrah for John Williams and  his crew! They put in a back-  breaking weekend replacing the  cedar posts around the park behind  the post office. It's a project the  community association has been  talking about for a couple of years.  Thanks folks.  PIANO APPRECIATED  I forgot to mention in last  week's column what a nice dinner  the ladies auxiliary of the Roberts  Creek Legion put on for the vets  and seniors in the community on  February 12. This is an annual  event much appreciated by the  guests and this year's social hour  with Kay Zantolas on the piano  Halfmoon Bay  was especially enjoyed.  KIDS BOOGIE TOO  The students of Roberts Creek  Elementary had a very successful  Valentine's Dance on February 17.  The kids had a really good time  and the parents were impressed  with how well it was organized.  Well done Colleen De Graff and  cohorts!  KATIMAVIK ACTIVE  The Katimavik group staying at  Camp Douglas this winter has left,  but there's another group on the  Coast and last week they were canvassing for the Heart Fund. As an  ex-canvasser, that's what I call  community service.  NEWSWORTHY NAMES  It's always fun to see somebody  local mentioned in the outside  media. Rae Ellingham's tips were  mentioned in Nicole Parton's column a few months ago and the  other night Mariette Hartley (the  actress in the camera commercial  with James Garner) was telling  Johnny Carson about her  childhood in Connecticut and how  heartbroken she was when another  girl stole the boy she liked...Hank  Schachte!  Jane McOuat 883-9342  RAINBOW'S END  I saw my first rainbow of 1984  last week, and a beauty it was! This  week I'll find out how well a rainbow shows up on black and white  film. It's hard to say just where the  rainbow really ended, but one  good guess might be at Roosendal  Farm where the, Roosen's first  cucumbers are now for sale. Eat  healthy and hearty, this means that  tomatos can't be too far behind!  SWAP MEET/CRAFT FAIRE  The Swap Meet & Craft Faire  will be held this Saturday, March  3, 10 a;m. at the Madeira Park  Community Hall. For tables call  Ron, 883-9171 or Hans, 883-2573.  TEENAGE ALCOHOL ABUSE  On Monday night at 7:30 p.m.,  February 27, the Pender Harbour  Community Response to Teenage  Alcohol Abuse will meet again at  Madeira Park Community Hall.  Ron Cole'tells me that there have  been' some small attitudinal  changes towards alcohol in some of  the kids since the talking has been  started.  I believe it's possible that if more  parents showed up, their caring  would begin to filter through to the  kids. Most children learn by example, not by lectures, no matter how  hard one tries.  SUPPORT YOUR HALL  You might notice that each of  the above events is taking place at  the community hall in Madeira  Park. The hall gets used for  everything and at some point in the  year by virtually everyone.  Remember Hallowe'en night, Happy Days, May Day, dances,  Brownies, etc, and don't forget  weddings and funerals.  Each year one of the major  fund-raising events is the Spring  Bazaar & Tea and this year it will  be held May 5. If you can knit,  sew, bake, grow or make anything  that other people would like to  buy, see Muriel Cameron for  materials. She's at 883-2609.

This problem, could be easily  solved should there be one or two,  folks within the area.who would be  -willing to be Cub leaders. An appeal is out for someone to respond  to this need, maybe the dad of one  of the Beavers would be good  enough to get involved. Training  would be willingly given to anyone  interested and a call to either David  Stoker at 885-2368 or Bill Cocking  at 885-2669 will be gratefully  received.  PARENTS MEETING  There will be a meeting bf the  parents of children attending Halfmoon Bay School on the afternnori  of Wednesday, February 29 at 2:30  at the school. -Among topics for  discussion will be the transporta-  tion situation for the field trip to  the Vancouver Planetarium and  the feasibility of. a school year  book.

ARGHH MATEY  Someone we'll probably see  more of around the community  from now on is Ray Lee. That's  Captain Ray Lee when he commands the largest of the Crown  Zellerbach tug fleet the Hecate  Crown up and down our coast.  Ray has been with C.Z. tugs for 33  years and this spring (well it's  almost Spring!) said "Enough."  You're right Ray. It's time to turn  the garden soil, go sailing and  travelling, play flute and still be off  every Saturday to help the kids in  the band. Enjoy yourself Ray, you  deserve it!

''Brown Bag Luncheon Meeting" of all Sunshine Coast auxiliaries to St. Mary's Hospital, held  ikst Wednesday at Sechelt Legion. -Fran Bumsidephoto  Secheit Scenario  annual meeting  ;'���;    Peggy Connor 885-9347  ^President of the B.C. Associated  hospital Auxiliaries Mrs. Merilyn  Pearson was the guest speaker at  ttfe volunteers' annual, meeting on  Wednesday, February 22 at the  Sechelt Legion Hall.  ';Mrs. Pearson commended the  iuxiliary for its superior effort in  Services to the hospital and the  money raised.  -'The speaker likened an auxiliary  to an automobile; if one single part  is not working, the whole thing will  rjpt go. All auxiliary parts are needed to accomplish its goals.  Communication and education  aid in making us aware of our part  in the whole health'scene.  Leaders are needed who are fired  with knowledge and enthusiasm,  -   Mrs. Pearson said. Money spent  on education today will return tenfold. It was an inspiring talk.  ' Volunteer director Mary Mac-  donald had an excellent lineup of  speakers from St. Mary's Hospital  for the close to 100 present.  I Administrator Nick Vucurevich  -told of the problems of adding the  new extended care building, of the  lack of money, not only for the  cost   bf   the   building   but    for  operating costs which will increase  by 2Vi to 3 million dollars. These  costs represent the big stumbling  block with ihe government.  Director of nursing, Wendy  Hunt, gave a rundown on the  disaster exercise.  \ Dariehe Parikratz is the in-service education co-ordinator, a 20  hour per week position. She brings  in education programs to the  hospital staff, provides on the job  training, has speakers come keeping the staff up to date. A lot of  teaching programs are on film for  video presentation.  Michele Chapman, dietitian  - clearly defined her contribution to  the hospital. Doctors order the  diets, patients' likes and dislikes  are: taken into consideration. She  does counselling of patients to  (blliow diets as out-patients.  ^Chairman offst. Mary's  hospital. Society^ Board, Guy  Lewall, emphasized the importance  of the auxiliary to the hospital.  ^Dr. Rand Rutland, Chief of  Staff, brought the appreciation of  tjtc doctors to the volunteers for  tj^eir help.  ^Lillian Peters, activity aide  escorted two of the patients from  extended care to the meeting, Mrs.  Eftima Ward and Mrs. May Thatcher.  ^Dorothy Goeson represented the  n��n-medical staff of the hospital  Whose co-operation along with the  rist of the staff of St. Mary's tell  tfi�� volunteers how much they are  appreciated.  >The Thrift Shop's fashion show  by Carmen Grassie was a howl, as  well as a good look at the really  fa|hionable items available at the  shop.

It is very easily done - all you  have to do is be at the Sechelt  Legion hall on Tuesday, February  28 some time between the hours  and 2 and 8 p.m. There you will  meet lots of your friends or meet  new ones - everyone is very friendly. Expertly done, in no time at all  you have provided a jar of the life-  saving fluid.  MARSH SOCIETY  GUEST SPEAKER  Speaking on Black Oyster Catchers will be professor of marine  biology, Dr. Brian Hartwick of  Simon Fraser University, at the  Sechelt Marsh Protective Society  meeting, held this month at the  Sunshine Coast Arts Centre on  Trail Avenue, Friday, March 2,  7:30 p.m.  While we see quite a few around  here, the Black Oyster Catcher is  getting to be a rare bird. Should be  interesting to hear more about this  coastal bird's habitat.

The February dinner meeting  was held at the Sechelt Inn with 20  members present, four new  members installed. A candlelight  ceremony was held to celebrate International Week.  Dodie Marshall was the guest  speaker. Accounts manager for the  Gibsons branch of the Bank of  Montreal and a member of the  club, Dodie's subject was "Is  . :redit in your best interest?" This  informative subject was followed  by a good discussion period.  Plans are under way for their  third annual fashion show to be  held on April 2. Get your tickets  early. The fashion show is held  each year to raise funds for the  bursary awarded each year to  young women to assist in higher  education.

TIMBER DAYS MEETING  At the meeting held in the  Sechelt municipal hall on Wednesday, February 22, it was decided to  call the May event in Sechelt  "Sechelt Sunshine Days", and the  theme suggested was leisure days.  There was not a big turnout;  Mayor Joyce Kolibas, Alderman  Ken Short; Dorothy (joeson who  was last year's chairman, Neil  Campbell from the Chamber of  Commerce, Ron Protocky and  Mike Myers from the Lions, and  Frank Young representing the  Canadian Legion.  What is needed is a chairman.  Dorothy cannot do it this year but  is willing to assist in an advisory  capacity. This is an interesting and  challenging job for someone to put  their energy and talent to work on.  . Needed also is a secretary - lots  of letters need typing, a May  Queen chairman, parade mar-  shalls, the support of all organizations and the community, people  to run events and to come out to  the next meeting with new ideas.  Suggestions and ideas may be  left at the village office.  The next meeting will again be at  the municipal office Wednesday,  February 29, 7:30 p.m. Everyone is  welcome, and organizations are  asked to send representatives.  Egmont News  Weather  wonders  by Ann Cook, 883-9167  LOTS OF WEATHER  Lots of weather to report in Egmont. It's snowing; it's raining; the.  sun is shining; look quick and see  the blue sky through the fog. Then  there was that beautiful full  moon���until it was hidden by rain  clouds. One morning last week the  sun rays were strong enough for  sunbathing, but a short distance  away there was ice on the puddles.  "THEY" ARE BACK  Winter is definitely over, I  know, because "they" are back.  They arrive in cars, vans, trucks,  hauling boats, motorhomes,  motorcycles, and the for sure sign  "hitchhikers". I saw two of them,  with yellow backpacks. Only the  footwear changes with the season  or migration. These were either  Nikes or Addidas, as there aren't  any Pumas around any more.  ; If you would like to identify one  but aren't quite sure, stand quietly  at the intersection in downtown  Egmont. As they are passing they  will roll down a window and ask,  "Where's Egmont?". They are  always in a rush to get to Egmont.

The local Sunshine Branch of  BPW participated in the special  tribute at their monthly dinner  meeting by lighting candles which  symbolized the ambitions and  endeavours of dedicated women in  many lands.  Today there are national federations in 37 countries and associate  clubs in 31 countries.  The international federation is a  dynamic and powerful organization of world importance. It enjoys  consultive status with the United  Nations Economic and Social  Council. It also has consultive  status with the United Nations  Educational, Scientific and  Cultural Organization, and the  board of the United. Nations  Children's Fund. It works closely  with the commission on human  rights and the International  Labour Organization.  The Canadian Federation of  Business & Professional Women's  Club has made submissions to the  various federal government departments, ministers and special committees on the resolutions approved at the 1982 convention;  presented a brief to a special committee on better pensions for Canadians; brief on benefits for part-  time workers.  The Sunshine Coast Business &  Professional Women's Club will be  holding its third annual fashion  show to raise money for its bursary  fund. Last year we were able to  award two bursaries - one to a  graduating student and one to an  adult student going back to college.  We ask the continued support of  the community to enable us to  again award two bursaries.

The wives and families of the workers suffer untold misery  and frequent loss of property through work stoppage. The  service community of every type of profession and business  suffers likewise.  For much too long we have had with us an adversary  system that has by now developed skilled proponents of each  side's doctrine, who being in a class by themselves, leave the  people who have the most to lose 'out in the cold'  We must have a change in the attitudes of both labour and  management of these large work forces.

The article goes on to explain that the advisory council  negotiates year round to a set schedule - April 1 for wages,  August I for general contract provisions, December 1 for  benefits. In this way, they say, major problems don't fester  until the next agreement.  Their pension plan Is self-managed in the form of RRSP's.  The company deposits 60 cents for each regular worked by  each miner into individual RRSP's.  The no strike, no lock-out agreement guarantees the conv  pany's ability to deliver the goods as contracted for.  Where there is a protracted stalemate there is fault on both  sides. You and I are involved whether we like it or not. I say  that to maintain a decent standard of living, we must learn to  work together.

' -j,h����i��� �������*��, ph���to  Gangsterquesf  by Peler Trower  Although we are moving further  inland now, the terrain remains indistinguishable from northern  Washington. Between briefly  glimpsed towns - Puyallup, Cen-  trali^jChehalis - this is still conifer  country;- c^vpted- to farming and  logging. FinaMy^we arrive at a  place called Castle Rock and here a  few ... differences are apparent  -chiefly the presence of enormous  ash heaps from the Mount St.  Helens eruption, two years earlier.  We decide to take a look at the  devastation and make . a brief  eastern detour.  When that dyspeptic volcano  finally blew its top  this unlucky country  had a reluctant preview  of World War Three  hut it was God who pushed the  button.  They say the sky  was black with dust that day  a scalding collossal flatulence  broke from the bowels of the earth  and mud flowed  down the Toutle River.  Whole forests  fell down like jackstraws  and stubborn Harry Truman  -went-tit join his famous namesake  hammered into oblivion  along with the lake he loved.  Now, two years later, the land  still reels from the memory  uncleared ash heaps bear witness  to that apocalyptic moment.  Beside the Toutle River  twelve feet of hard-packed silt  furnish a buried house -  Opportunistic vendors  reap the profits of disaster  with t-shirts posters ash sculptures  Gaudy billboards  proclaim this to be  the "Volcano Capital of America"  And the mountain  called St. Helens  hides innocently  behind a cloud blanket  never to be taken for granted  again.  Tooling on down the Number 5  Interstate, we arrive at the Columbia River and the Washington/  Oregon border. Here, the other  and smaller Vancouver, once a  legendary fort, crouches glurrily at  the very bottom of the State.  Across the river, Portland sprawls  hugely. !t is sluicing down rain as  we cross the bridge and pick our  way through Portland's tangle of  streets, guiding ourselves by that  cryptic Number 5. We wend our  way to the outskirts and plunge into Oregon proper.  We are now in the general  bailiwick of famed writer Ken  Kesey, author of One Flew Over  the Cuckoo's Nest and Sometimes  a Great Notion. Yvonne and I are  both fans of his work and we  briefly consider paying him a visit.  Then 1 remember reading that he  doesn't particularly appreciate  unannounced visitors so we decide  against it.  We forge on through pretty  country, still dominated by conifers. Yvonne, an ardent northwest  history buff, reflects that Hudsons  Bay and Northwest Company fur  traders were the first white men to  penetrate this land. It is a provocative thought and I try to imagine the country as it must have  been then' - wild, mysterious,  Indian-haunted - long before  _Gr_ers and'LaWs'.

Concert a sample  of fine artistry  MusicajXersatilityofJean-Pierre  Leblano'and Claude Giguere was  enjoyed 'by an appreciative audience at the Sunshine Coast Arts  Centre, Saturday.  Travel Through Time and  Space, the concert theme, was  enriched by a progression of  cultural and historical styles and a  fitting range of musical instruments.  Primitive mantca^sounds_of. the  bamboo flute, drums^arid harp,  and subtle progressio^tp recorder  and tambourine compcJsiijons of  the 14th Century maintain^ the  musical flow from the beginning-.  There followed Bach; Viva'di and  Teleman compositions of the; 18th  Century and finally ah excellent  Villa Lo Bos composition adapted  for the guitar and violin.  ',��� Both Leblanc and Giguere are  from the province of Quebec and  moved to B.C. five and three years  ago respectively. Leblanc, a resident of Roberts Creek, masters  both guitar and flute. He studied  music at the University of Montreal and now teaches and per  forms in the Vancouver area.  Giguere, a violinist, studies and  teaches music at the Vancouver  Academy of Music.  Hopefully, the fine artistry of  both men will continue to be enjoyed on the Sunshine Coast.  Signs at  Trout Lake  Regional board directors will  again be requesting the Department of Highways to erect a sign at  <Trout Lake.  ."The lake is a supplementary  drinking water reservoir and,' while  the health department does not feel  it is necessary to prohibit swimming in the lake.the SCRD wants  users to be aware of its status.  'Highways will be requested to  erect a sign stating "No overnight  camping".  The regional board hopes to add  a sign indicating "This is a water,  reservoir. Please do not pollute".'  by Joan Huestis Foster  Even with 'painter sensibility'  . and 'theoretical dissections'of the  fundamental elements' or any  preconceived 'conceptualismY I  hope I still recognize a rollicking  art show when I see one. The current exhibition of four Vancouver  artists at the Sunshine Coast Art  Centre is just that.  The maxi-showMs as far away  from 'tidy prints for tidy homes' as  you can get.  The paintings are  huge, garish and filled with all sorts v  of applied exuberance,    m      .  I found the works to be wildly,  colourful, sloppy, loud; pretentious, energetic, brash', uncontrqll- .  ed, sometimes apocryphal,; undisciplined, fiercely messy,  sometimes awful and occasionally  charming; which is a lot of reaction  to any exhibit. It would be impossible for anyone to just stroll by  these works without reacting.  I find Allyson Clay to be most in  control of her composition and  brush stroke and therefore, to my  eye, her statement is the most  coherent. With some discipline in  colour and form, her impact is  more direct in both 'Summertime'  and 'Mad'.  It is rarely more than garish to  employ all the colours of the spectrum in one composition but Vicky  Marshall does and almost gets  away with it in 'Fish Market' and  'Wedding'. But her 'Sunday Football' is totally awful. It is a dis  jointed triple composition in which  unrestricted brush strokes lead tlie  eye flying off the unframed canvas  where their function is to lead. The  three distinctly separate uncoordinated compositions within  the'painting do not integrate at all.  The viewer must force his eye to  flick and dart and this contriving is  not worth the effort.'  ..; All four Vancouver painters  Over-use heavy blacks. I would  suspect therrt to be good friends,  perhaps paint along side each other  with discussion or all have been influenced by. the same teacher.  Their, weaknesses are similar and  they lack the same disciplines  . (several ^differing colours all  squished into the same brushstroke  used to be called 'muddy', however  times and disciplines change).  Few of us require a three-page  explanation of this or any other  group of paintings. Visual expression is the nature and reality of art.  If this does not happen, no amount  of esoteric verbiage will help.  This exhibition does not take  itself too seriously and it does portray some humour.and humanity  (as well as the Sunshine Coast's  first ever male nude) so why not  take a jaunt along the Coast to the  Sunshine Coast Art Centre across  from Hackett Park in Sechelt at  Trail and Medusa Streets.

H-oihs  by Dee Cee  Although I am reasonably certain that it was not included in the.  curriculum, I first heard of the  Yoshiwara district when I was still  a schoolboy. I seem to recall that  some of the older and more*  precocious boys were having, a  discussion on the relative merits of ���  various famous red light regions in  different parts of the world and  this area in Tokyo, Japan, was  rnentioned, along with 'the streets  ; of glasshouses' in Rio de Janeiro  and the infamous Grant Street in  Bombay, where the young prostitutes were kept, in cages. Where  they had gleaned all this  knowledge, God only knows, but  being at the age of puberty, I listened fascinated to the lurid accounts  they gave of just what went on in  these brothels, and not only did I  make a mental note of it all but, I  promised myself that, once free  from the restraints of school and  parental control, I would lose no  time in including these places in my  itinerary.  It took a few years but now here  I was in Showa, Japan, about 30  minutes' train ride from Tokyo  and the opportunity had arrived. I  don't think there could have been  anyone more dedicated and enthusiastic in getting started on this  interesting research.  My knowledge of Japanese  history being almost negligible, I  have no idea of when or how the  Yoshiwara district came into existence, but in the year 1949 when I  paid il a visit, its area covered  almost three square miles and I  learned from a fairly reliable  source that there were over 3000  girls to pick and choose from.  After crossing Asakusa Pafk it  takes a few minutes to reach the  Omon or entrance gate which, in  turn, leads to six main streets branching out in all directions. There  are what are called 'guide houses'  dotted along the way and these are  there for the benefit of newcomers  to the area - where directions can  be obtained as to which house or  houses one should visit, according  to one's personal preferences and  how much one is willing to pay for  the services provided. There are  three types of houses, first, second,  and third class and, seeing that.

It is unfortunate in some  respects thai the Coast News is,  after all, a family newspaper so I  am restricted in describing all the  events that transpired during that  marvellous night, but at least I  have the memories so I will let it go  at that.  On later trips to Japan I found  to my sorrow that the Yoshiwara  had been closed. With the  American occupation in force and  in their zeal to introduce the  dubious benefits of western  democracy to the Japanese,  General Douglas MacArthur had  ordained that women be given the  franchise. They lost no time in exercising that right and the brothels  were forced to close. This leads me  to the observation that, far from  solving the. problems of prostitu- -,-  tion, all-it did was to scatter the  practitioners of this ancient profes- M  sion and if anything made it more  difficult to control them. '���������%.,���������  The same situation prevails right  at this moment in Vancouver, B.C.

There was hard-hitting rugby action at Elphinstone Field last  Saturday when the Vancouver Trojans trounced the Gibsons  Rugby Club 13 - 6. -HkeHMenP"^  Gibsons swimmer Lothar  Hirschfelder recently competed in  a Masters' Swim meet in Victoria,  and came home, with five ribbons  for his efforts.  The meet attracted the top 12  teams from Alberta and B.C. with  approximately 60 swimmers taking  part. Hirschfelder was the only  participating member of the 'Gibsons Pacemakers', the newly formed swim club for those over 20.  Hirschfelder won first place in  the 25 m. backstroke, second in,the  50 m. backstroke, third in the 25  m. free-style, and third in the 100  m. individual medley.  He also won first place in the  4x50 team medley swimming for  Team Calgary, which was a man  short.  The Pacemakers are looking for  new members interested in competitive swimming. They meet at  the Gibsons Pool every Tuesday  and Thursday from 6 to 7 p.m.,  and anyone interested in more information on the club can call  Sheldon Sipe at the pool, 886-9415.  % Lothar Hirschfelder brought home a raft of ribbons from a recent  '* Masters' Swim Meet in Victoria. -Fran Hurmhuephoto  discussion  X The Sunshine Coast Regional,  ��Board received at Mts regular1  ^meeting last week, a letter from the  ^Village of Sechelt concerning the  ^airport. The letter stated that:  "I"Although the airport serves  ^"businesses and ' residents  ^throughout the entire : Sunshine  |i"Coast area, its costs are borneorily  f:by the taxpayers of Gibsons and  ^Sechelt. At present, the SCRD  Mieithcr contributes to the costs of  Mhe airport operation nor has a  ���voice in its policies and  ^operation."  K  if  <   The letter went on to request  "that the SCRD, 1) "Equally, with  Gibsons and Sechelt, budget a sum  of* $2500 toward theX cost ot  Operating the* airport; and 2)  Nominate a director to serve as the  SCRD's representative on the Ah>  port Management committee."  Recognizing that the provincial  government would not allow the  board tpradopt an airport function  at this, time, the board noted that  suchT a siim woulc' have to come  out of its grants-in-aid budget.  Several directors spoke in favour  of such a contribution and  representation, and the matter was  referred to the Committee of the  Whole to deal with before completion of the 1984 budget.  x_s  ��� L-.-'.'.^'LLlULt^MM^gM^V^^U  J.F.W.

Coast News, February 27,1984  ^^^i^W^^^^MM$i  no  tllphinstonc   senior   students  (grades 11 and 12) were hosts to the  seniors from Chatelech and Pender  Harbour   at    a   very   successful  ,r, Valentine Dance this year. Ii was  ur an  occasion  which everyone en-  ..,. joyed and of which they can be  proud.  3 ��� School dances in recent years  P1;. have earned an unenviable repula-  ,u-. lion; the stories of fights, of  ...j, washrooms left in a ��� disgraceful  ~n state, of kids arriving at the school  '..����� alreadv inebriated losi nothing in  - ��� the idling as they circulated in the  \.y community.  ���Uj      This year il was different. The  dance committee laid out careful  rjr rules ahead of time to ensure that  M; any unruly clement would be iden-  ,;., t i lied before I he dance began. The  i,, rules were adhered lo and strictly  j,,_,, enforced. Dres> requirements-were  -,,/, semi-formal, which meant no jeans  .,-:i or diny joggers, but left plenty ol  leeway for everyone lo feel their  choice was acceptable without go-  inu lo extra expense. The uirls came  /  in I heir prettiest dresses, the boys  if   correct in slacks and sports jackets,  J   making ii a festive and special oc-  K   casion for everyone.  v.       Il was special, loo, in that il is  .the'first time as far as anyone can  remember that the three schools  have had a dance together. It was  an occasion for 220 .students, many  parents and members of the stall  of each school to meet together to  have fun, get to know one another,  and forget the. rivalries of the  basketball court, the generation  gap and anything else which  divides us. ���  How. I wonder, did we allow,  our teenages to be separated from  the community into a son of subculture of their own? I suspect ii  was.a part of the commercial imperative which used the media (and  still does) to divide us into easy  segments for softening up as consumers.  The old timers' among us can  remember the days before television when a dance brought the  whole community together, front  ureal-grandparents to the babies  bundled in shawls. When the little  ones became tired there was always  a comfortable lap lo curl up on and  the encircling arms of some older  member, of (he comma nil y.  laihers look pride in dancing with'  their daughters, sons could be seen  Icadini! mother onto the'floor and  everyone look time out for a whirl  with the young ones. Everyone  knew they belonged and Were a  valued member of the wider com-'  -.'munity in which their immediate  family lived.  .  There's no way we can go back  to those days of innocence, but.we  can perhaps regain for our teens  'that- sense of belonging thai will  hopefully lessen iheir need for crutches like alcohol and other drugs.  It's easy to cherish small children  while I hey are still at ihc dependent  .stage, but we tend lo forget that  teenagers need the-warm and caring 'protection of adults quite as  much as ..toddlersdo. It's a mistake  to judge requirements by height or  age - the taller they gel. the less  support they need.  Growing-up is never easy aii.d today's teenagers, facing ihc uncer-  taincies and challenge of contemporary society, need more than  ever to feel they arc supported by  the adults in their families and the  communitv'.  It seems popular these days to  downgrade schools and teachers,  but we've got sonic good ones, and  a super bunch, of kids. Let's Me-,  joice!  Notice of  OPOSED  TO TOWN  Public Hearing  AWIENDMENTS  OF GIBSONS  NO. 350, 1979  At Roberts Creek School  by Charlie Petersen  f:   fc       This week we have chosen to  3    write   a   story   on   the   famous  3    Creeker dog named Peanuts. For  2   those of you who don't know who  I    Peanuts is, he is-a well-known dog  S   at    Roberts   Creek   Elementary  i   School.   He   has   been   hanging  around  our  school   for at  least  seven years. His owner's name is  Lonen Jones, along with Lonen's  parents who have been living in  their house on Roberts Creek Road  for twenty-five years. The Jones  Shave   owned    Peanuts   since  g sometime in July of 1972.  Peanuts shares his territory with  /their cat, Brut. Peanuts is known  5 as the sandwich sniffer at our  jj school. He turns up at exactly  ! 10:45 to play with the kids'and be  J fed at recess, but when it's 11:00  \it's time to pack it up and go home  a for a nice sleep under the carport.  g Mrs. Jones said that one of the  ft funniest things that Peanuts did  ..was jump in one of fhe decorated  trucks at Roberts Creek Daze and  '. stand up like he was;the king.  So, if you ever see a beige dog  carrying a sandwich or paper bag,  that's Peanuts.  ��� .* '       ���        ��� ���.':  by Kristie Sugden and Jodi Kldred  It's beejv.a busy week at Roberts  Creek Elementary School.
