 J-*j..-ii--i.-V*-0*Ii-   ^Ifw*^-!  legislativeLibrary  Parliament Buildings  Victoria, B.C.  1X4  8&4  li-Mx  ** I  Miss Audrey Jost, past-president, was awarded an Honourary  Life Membership in the Sechelt Intermediate Care Society by  president Harris Cole at the society's annual general meeting last  week. Previous Honourary Life Members who also received certificates were Mrs. Gilbert Lee and Mrs. Elsie Elcheson.  ���Fr��n Burnside pholo  The Sechelt Intermediate. Gare-  Society's sixth annual general  meeting brought forth facts and  information about its facility,  Shorncliffe Intermediate Care  Home, of which all members can  be justly proud.  Chief among these was Chairman Harris Cole's report that,  "We have come to the conclusion  of the first period of operations./  with a surplus and, with the excep- ,  tion of two departments, the facility is under budget."  Cole continued, "This is a  remarkable achievement when one  considers the current restraint program Victoria has in effect and the  cutbacks experienced in-all phases  of the operation of the facility."  The accountant's report showed X  ah end of 1983 surplus of $43,016. X  Much praise was given to the v,  previous boards of directors for  their wisdom and vision .in the  planning of Shorncliffe and in their,  selection of Mr. Howard Webster  as administrator of the care home,  whose efforts were invaluable dur- X  nfg the construction of the building  a? well as efficient in handling its  budget.  IA member of the inventory com-  tfuttee responsible for furnishing  Shorncliffe, Vice-president John  |ewis noted that, as a result of  (Consultations of the committee  |wth the firm of Beyer-Brown, who  Mfsrere chosen to provide the inventory, the firm had submitted to  furniture manufacturers a whole  pew line of furniture design for use  fa similar facilities.  *V Lewis also noted that the  building committee had determin-  ved several deficiencies in the construction of the building, and that  all but one had been corrected to  date. Some modifications had also  been requested by the staff and  board, and the work is presently in  progress under tender to the local  firm of Brian Hazlett Construction.  ; /tin December the board approved the purchase of a computer for  Shorncliffe, with the result that the  facility;is now self-sufficient. It still  maintains a policy of sharing software with the Sunshine Coast  Regional District, whose computer  was originally made available to  the society for setting up the accounting and payroll systems.  Administrator Webster's report  stated, "Thanks to the success of  our fall fund-raising drive, donations for the year exceeded  $42,000. While $35,000 was spent  on software, the society's very  favourable surplus position allowed us to finance most of these softwares from general operating  surplus. As a result, we were able  to retain a significant portion of  these donations for future expenditure."  Webster, as well as the board,  had high praise for the staff of  Shorncliffe.  "Part of this surplus was due to  changes and streamlining of  departmental services, and through  the co-operation of the staff in  minimizing relief and doing their  share to keep expenditure down to  the necessities only" he said. "The  staff is to be congratulated for  this."  Webster referred to the Shorncliffe Auxiliary as "a very needed  and valued part of Shorncliffe."  During 1983 the Sechelt Intermediate Care Society's board of  directors was increased from six to  nine, as it was found the number of  committees necessary to ensure ah  efficient and harmonious liason  between board and administration  in the many areas of responsibility  was too great for six volunteers.  Elected to three-year terms by  acclamation at the annual general  meeting were Peggy Connor,  Morgan Thompson, and Erie  Rudland.  The 1984 board of directors for  the Sechelt Intermediate Care  Society is as follows: president,  Harris Cole; vice-president,  Morgan Thompson; treasurer,  Walter Nichols; directors, John  Lewis, Peggy Connor, Ken Wells,  Ellen Bragg, Jack McLeod, Eric  Rudland; and appointee of the  Ministry of Health, Verity Purdy.  SCRD reversal  on again  Sechelt Mayor Joyce Kolibas chats with the national leader of the NDP, Ed Broadbent, at the close of  Timber Days last Monday. He had attended the B.C. party leadership convention in Vancouver and  ferried to the Sunshine Coast for a visit with MP Ray Skelly and ML A Don Lockstead. He was also interviewed at the Cable 10 studio and by the Coast News. -S.KdyKmersonpl.olo  Takes in Timber Days  HDP leader visits  by John Burnside  A surprise visitor to Sechelt's  very successful Timber Days event  last week was the Honourable Ed  Broadbent, federal leader of the  New Democratic Party. Broadbent  visited the event in company of  federal MP Ray Skelly and provincial ML A Don Lockstead.  X During his visit to the Sunshine  Coast the federal leader was interviewed for Community Channel 10  by local high school teacher Renee  Fountain and found time for a  short conversation with the Coast  News. The interview with the community TV channel will be screened this week.  M In his conversation with the  Coast News, the NDP leader  acknowledged that things had  looked somewhat rough for the  NDP in recent months.  "Our polls indicated, however,"  said Broadbent, "that things never  were as bad as the Gallup poll was  indicating for our party. It must be  borne in mind that much of our  strength is in various regions. Polling; of areas of strength indicated to  us-that our support was holding up  no" matter what the Gallup was finding."  Broadbent said that he was confident that his party would hold  onto the seats it presently held and,  with the recent resurgence of the  Liberals making three party races  in many ridings, he claimed that  the NDP was in a strong position  to make considerable gains in the  approaching federal election.  When asked about the present  political climate in the province of  British Columbia, the, NDP leader  was forthright in his observations.  "It used to be," he said, "that  the rest of the country looked to  B.C. the way Americans look to  California, as a glimpse of the  future. Today, former Conservative member of parliament and  president of the National Human  Rights Committee, Gordon  Fairweather, is on record as saying  the recent human right legislation  brought in by the provincial  government is the worst in the  country.  ' 'The amount of suffering which  has been brought to the people of  this province is tragic and the worst  of it is it is entirely unnecessary."  / "  Broadbent pointed out that  Premier Pawley had bsen elected in  Manitoba two years ago on basically the same platform on which the  NDP had run in this province last  year.  "Today, under the program  Pawley has brought forward with  its emphasis on job creation to  combat employment, Manitoba  has the lowest unemployment rate  in Canada and B.C. is close to having the worst."  Before coming to the Coast,  Broadbent had been in attendance  at the leadership convention held in  Vancouver last week. He expressed  himself confident in that the NDP  provincially had chosen the right  man in Bob Skelly for the problems besetting the province.  Solar eclipse  The partial eclipse of .the sun, May 30, will be the most  dangerous type of eclipse to watch precisely because it will be a partial one. When the sun is not completely covered, invisible infra-red  rays from the exposed part can damage the eyes and even cause  blindness.  The only safe way to watch the eclipse is to see it on television.  This is especially important for children at home or at school.  The danger arises when looking at the sun directly, something no  one does on a normal, sunny day.  But during an eclipse some people can't resist taking a chance.  After the eclipse of May 7, 1970, 145 cases of eye injury were  reported in the United States among people who watched the sun  either directly or through inadequate filters.  The eclipse will begin and end at. roughly the following time:  Pacific Daylight Time - 8:30 a.m. to 9:45 a.m.  The. Sunshine Coast Regional  '. District has completed its pirouette  in the matter of a proposed fish  hatchery on;Chapman Creek, and  is once, again prepared tp make  zoning;-accommodations to allow  the hatchery the use of land reserved for. parks purposes along the  : creeky'.which is the district's main  domestic water supply.  After discussions with Mr. Jim  McCracken of the Water Rights  Branch of the Ministry of Environment, regional directors have been  assured that the district has a  "e on all available water on  weds' have precedence overfall.)  ftit&re water applications on the  creeS.  The proposed hatchery's use of  water wouldL;hot affect how much  water the district must release from  its reserves into the creek in low  water periods, as that is regulated  by the minimal flows necessary to  maintain the natural fish stocks in  the creek, and would remain the  same as present.  According to McCracken,  whose signature appears on all  water licences, all concerns raised  by regional district engineers  Dayton and Knight would be addressed and notated on the proposed hatchery's water licence. This  would include absolving the district  of any liability for damages which  might be incurred by the hatchery  should the district need to do construction or make repairs to its intakes in the creek, providing notice  is given of when the work "will be  done.  "It's not ironclad," stated a  rdieved-sounding regional board  chairman Jim Gurney, "but we  can secure our position on Chapman Creek, take lots of precautions to safeguard it and make our  interests 99 per cent safe."  Directors also had to deakwith  the matter of re-zoning, as the  crown land in question is currently  Public Institutional, which does  not allow a hatchery use,'and is  also Under Reserve for the Enjoyment of the Public (UREP), a park  reserve.  A moratorium exists on current  zoning By-law 96, so directors felt  the best plan would be to incorporate necessary re-zoning into  proposed By-law 264, inform the  Ministry of Lands, Parks and  Housing of their approval of a hatchery on the site, and let the hatchery operators, Thomas and Linda May, apply for a Special Use  Permit from the ministry in the interim. .,  Directors moved to assign a  Rural 1 (RUl) zoning to "the  smallest site area possible" which  would accommodate the  hatchery's needs, seeking to retain  as much of the five acre area as  possible as a public park reserve.  An RUl zone is the most restrictive zone which is compatible with  a fish hatchery, and in proposed  By-law 264 it allows agriculture,  garden nursery, kennel and riding  stable use. One of May's proposals  to the regional district is that he  landscape and upgrade the area to  promote its use as apark, which fits  in with a 'garden nursery' use.  The regional board will ask May  to concur with a Development Per-  'mit Plan, which will outline standards and restrictions of develop  ment on the property, and also  wants his operation situated where  it affects.the linear park as little as  possible.  Tom May told the Coast News  that Lands, Parks and Housing requires the regional board's approval before issuing any permits,  and .once that is received and his  approvals are issued he will begin  work on the site immediately.  The first work done will be road  construction into the site, then  pipelines and water supply will go  in.' May wants to set up a tank or  trough with at least a few fish in  it���the numbers will depend on  what fisheries requests them to  do���"so that we can monitor the  site through the summer with fish  oh it."  r  Annual luncheon  All members of the public are invited to enjoy the annual lun-  Bfieo^hdsfMby*!^  . iliary, to be held this thiirsdayi Jji^^ a.m. to 2 p.m. in  the Sechelt Indian Band Hall. A wide range Of delicious homemade  dishes will be offered "cafeteria style", and a new feature this year  is a salad bar.  Musical treat  Of special note this week is the presentation of scenes from the  Sunshine Coast's own Lloyd Burritt's work Altar of the Sun by the  students of Argyle Secondary School where he teaches.  Altar of the Sun is a musical study of the life of St. Francis of  Assissi and the students will be seen in selections from the work  under Mr. Burritt's direction at 2 p.m. Sunday, June 3, at the  United Church Hall in Gibsons.  Plane crash  A single-engine Beachcraft plane on route from Vancouver to  Powell River crashed into the mountainside near Pender Harbour  Secondary School, above the Pender hydro station, sometime  after 2 a.m. Saturday morning, killing both occupants aboard.  Dead are 46-year old Dennis McKinnon and Joy Llacuna, 42,  both residents of Powell River.  Comox Search and Rescue was alerted by the plane's homing  device, which was activated by the crash, and search and rescue  ground crews moved in after the crash site on the side of Mount  Helliwell had been pinpointed by helicopter.  Cause of the crash is unknown, but it is thought that rain conditions existed in the area at the time.  Ministry of Transport officials are presently on the scene of the  accident, and the matter is still under investigation.  Ernie Fossett was cheered on by Sue Shepherd and a crowd of hap-;  py celebrants as he cut the cake at the Roberts Creek Community  Hall's 50th Birthday Party. -f���Burmw*photo 2.  Coast News, May 28,1984   ii��iiimim>  ��i  &fc  A needless mess  Any sports fan knows Big Al Davison of CKNW. He is a  sportscaster who specializes in invective and abuse. On the  hockey broadcasts if the team isn't playing well he heaps abuse  on them. If they are playing well he heaps abuse on the referees.  Last year, Big Al's penchant for abuse cost his station its  long-standing relationship with the B.C. Lions.  It isn't our policy to comment on the teapot tempests whipped  sup by our competitor up the road. Suffice to say that in its news  editor, as in its publisher, it specializes in manufactured sensationalism and abuse and invective apparently for their own  sakes.  Last week the intrepid news editor decided to take exception  to remarks Davison made on air during his Sea Watch program,  relatively innocuous remarks about fish and chips.  This week Big Al, in response, unloaded on the entire Sunshine Coast from his vantage point at the most popular radio  station on the Lower Mainland. He heaped scorn on the area,  on its people, and on the services we provide for our visitors. '  We note, sardonically, that our own self-styled promotional  genius, one Richard Tomkies who 'does not make mistakes',  has just named the publisher of the paper which landed us in this  needless mess to be a director of the newly-formed Tourist  Association. We're off to a great start.  A vote of thanks  It is with real pleasure that we congratulate the good people  who collectively have made the Shorncliffe Intermediate Care  Facility the outstanding success that it has proven to be.  In the mail this week there is a horror story from Nanaimo  about just such a facility which has been recently privatized with  a decline in the standard of care which is nothing short of shocking.  Locally we have proved that we can provide a quality service  for the respected seniors amongst us without need of 'the profit  motive'. The community owes a vote of thanks to all those who  provide in both Sechelt and Gibsons the care for our elderly  which is their due.  5 YEARS AGO  In a special ceremony at  the home of Clarence Joe,  manager of the Sechelt Indian   Band, two Sunshine  Coast      infants     were  honoured with traditional Indian names. Infant Nadine,  daughter of Frank and Shelly Hoehne was given the Indian name, Lam-Haat. The  original   Lam-Haat   was   a  highly-respected - lady-chief  and a lady of considerable  wealth.  The second infant to be  ^so^Jrojn^-^d;���^ajs   QuinnM  ^"Nicholson, first-born of Ed  and Isla. the Indian name  given to Quinn was Chas-  . ken, the name of the great  golden thunderbird at the  top of the Indian totem pole.  10 YEARS AGO  Gibsons   Council   has  " decided  to  approach  the  RCMP over disorder in the  village, the chief complaint  was the condition of Pioneer  Park which contains graves  of some of Gibsons earliest  pioneers.  A Cliff Connor fishing trip  with five passengers lost  their boat but managed to  save their fish when the  vessel hit a log and sank in  deep water, a week ago last  Saturday.  Gibsons       Peninsula  Cleaners  plant  on  Gower  Point road was gutted by a  fire which burned furiously  Saturday afternoon. Origin  of the fire appears to have  been in the boiler room and  it spread so rapidly there  was   barely   time   to   get  patrons' dry cleaning out.  15 YEARS AGO  Ardis   Crowston   will  celebrate   her   twenty-first  birthday this week with the  first display of her paintings  at the Sunshine Coast Arts  Council Gallery in Sechelt.  Mrs. W.A.C. Bennett will  have a busy schedule when  she visits the Sunshine  Coast for a tea at Sechelt  and a coffee party at Pender  Harbour. She will have in her  party, Mrs. W.B. Black, Mrs.  F. Richter, Mrs. L.R. Peterson, Mrs. C.M. Shelford and  Mrs. Ray Williston.  20 YEARS AGO  Sechelt municipal council  had decided to have an  engineering firm survey the  village for a sewer and water  system possibilities.  Harvey P. Hubbs, president of'St.: Mary's Hospital  society has announced with  regret the resignation of Mr.  XMliariiX Ft MWgah^es ad^  ministrator of St. Mary's  . Hospital.  25 YEARS AGO  A wave in heavy seas  which swept over the back  of a small open boat Saturday, resulted in the craft.  overturning off Roberts  Creek, throwing three people into the water.  First prize in the elementary division of the Canadian Forestry Association's  annual school poster contest went to a 10-year old  pupil of Roberts Creek  school, John Warn.  30 YEARS AGO  The Roberts Creek PTA  members were entertained  by Cynthia Hillier with a  resume of Dr. Neetby's  scathing criticism of  modern education, "So Little for the Mind". Some lively discussion followed. Mrs.  Blake reported on the  scholarship fund and $50  was voted to be sent to the  secretary thus fulfilling  Roberts Creek obligation to  pay its share of the $250.  35 YEARS AGO  Only 35 per cent of eligible voters cast their ballots  in the recent plebiscite on  $605,000 worth of school  construction. Results are  awaited from Egmont and  Britain River to determine  whether the programme will  go ahead or not.  The Sunshine  ������'.:.    CO-MJBUSHEHS  John Burnside M.M.

George Gibson, who had supervised construction projects along  the waterfront prior to incorporation, had already claimed a preemption inside the western entrance to Howe Sound. Now, in  1892, citizens who are prominent in trade and commerce have  chartered,Captain Mooney's steamer "Burt" to call on George  and Charlotte Gibson. They have spent some hours at the Gibson  home, and they are seen hete with their families on the deck and  cabin of the little vessel. They are our first tourists. The precedent  set by this excursion is to profoundly affect the pulse of life along  the Sunshine Coast throughout the years ahead. Photo courtesy  Cecil F.

I  even read the other day that Barrett had his eye on the national  leadership of the NDP. What in  God's name has he done to deserve  it?"

"That's.been true.4)retty. much  for; the past eight years and has got  him exactly nowhere along with the  party he has been leading," said  Jake.  "Well, Barrett supporters would  be quick to point out, Jake, that he  raised the NDP from 32 per cent of  the popular vote in .1972 to 45 per  cent in 1982. They'd point out that  , Js a record unmatched by any NDP  , .politician in Canada."  "And I'd be just as quick to  point out to them the calibre of the  opposition he'd been running  against. I mean Bill Bennett must  be about the least attractive politician in Canada. He looks dishonest  and he can't talk. He's about 100  years out of date in'his thinking  and is surrounded by the least appetizing looking bunch of yoyos in  power in the western world. To  score only 45 per cent against such  . a collection of political thugs  should be properly regarded as the  most complete of electoral  failures."  "Well, I'm not sure I don't  agree with you, Jake, but you  know how it is. People are always  looking for the one strong man  who will lead them out of the  wilderness. Barrett is regarded in  many quarters as a kind of NDP  Moses, I guess. As Trudeau was  for the Liberals, Mulroney is for  the Conservatives and now, I  guess, it's John Turner who's go  ing to be the magic man for the  Liberals."  "It's all part of perversion of  democracy," said Jake. "Canada  went wild over Trudeau 16 years  ago and where did it lead us. All we  got was more of the same old  Liberal con game which has presided over this country becoming a  powerless satellite of the.United  States.-IfMhe right, -fp. choose our  leaders is determined by who  makes the best.speeches, cracks the  best jokes, or is the grooviest, it's a  sad outlook. Barrett should be left  to sell himself on commercial radio  for his old friend Jimmy Pattison.  He has nothing of substance to offer this country.  "People," said Jake, refilling  bur glasses, "have got to learn that  it is the policy offered which  should determine the choice of  government. They've got to accept  the fact that implicit in the business  of democracy is a little thinking on  the part of the voters. And we've  got to get rid of this sickening sentimentality which makes us feel  better if we heap praise on such, as  Barrett as they're making their way  out the door.  "It turns my stomach when I  watch Barrett playing his littlejboy  modest act in the face of mi  and imdeseryed accplades,,'  never was.a man who had a,b|'tef  .opportunity;to 49i��sometfi|p^por-.  thwhile with his political 'c^^f^id:  .all he has left us with is._iljI _ennett  and the Fraser Institute. If I'd been  at the convention I'd have been  throwing eggs at the SOB."   ,  "1 dare say, Jake, but he's gone  now. You can relax a little."  "Keep your eye on him. If he  does end up in Ottawa he'll do untold harm there before he's done,"  snorted Jake, not in the least  mollified.  , I was content to leave it at that,  enjoying, the chickadees and the  wine. So, too, for the moment  seemed Jake.  On Hearing a  Symphony of Beethoven  Sweet sounds, oh, beautiful music, dp not cease!  Reject me not into the world again.

M\  Let's hope that this time; while  the trustees must necessarily; focus  on: the young, theMest of us will  stop and take a long hard look at  ourselves ���nd whatwe are. dbihg to  ��� our kids... ". mm;.MM^  I remember the last time the problem of teenage drinking:-was  brought forcibly to our attention.  A new, young reporter with'the  Peninsula Times, either alerted by  what she'd seen covering pur weekly court procedures, or by concerned parents, wrote a feature story  about alcohol abuse among high-  school students.    ���  It was perhaps overly dramatic,  her intention to shake us out of our  comfortable. complacency-, that: all  was well in the Shangri4a! beside  thesea. '���''sV .': ,-X-XX.'':':.  The reaction was certainly more  than she had expected. There was  little if any concern that we had  some kids who were in need of help  and understanding, instead the  roof fell in on the paper. Pages of  letters ' from angry -.parents,  teachers, and students complaining  bitterly that their reputations and  that of their school had been  besmirched.  Ten years down the road we're  perhaps more aware of the fallout  from society's new-found emancipation and that we can no longer  sweep our problems under the rug  pretending they don't exist.  We understand a lot more about  the psychology bf addiction, not  only to alcohol, nicotine and illegal  drugs but to such ordinary, everyday substances as sugar of coffee.  Few of us escape the pressures of  becoming' a slave to a habit of  some sort and while it makes us  more tolerant, as it should, it  shouldn't blind us to the consequences of our actions.  It's not enough to declaim our  personal right to go to hell in a  handcart if we so wish. That's only  possible if you live on a desert  island, alone. Otherwise everyone's  life and lifestyle has an effect on  the community in which he or she  lives. One either makes stepping  stones or stumbling blocks.  A neighbour commented recently (only half seriously because he  knows it's impractical) that only  those whose lifestyle hasn't contributed to their illness should  benefit from medicare. That might  put most of us in jeopardy. But it is  a fact that the problems inherent in  paying for any comprehensive  health service are compounded by  the fact that most of us contribute  to our health /problems by overeating, eating the wrong food;  smoking, over-indulging in alcohol  or just not taking enough exercise.  Perhaps the way we are meant to  be "our brother's keeper" is to set  our own house in order and provide the best role model we can?  This school district has already  embarked on programs which  allow children to discuss and  avaluate problems of living in today's world, encouraging the  strength of spirit and character  which will not fall victim to  dependence on a crutch or  chemical stimulant.  The school board's -poljcy  manual lays great emphasis on  strengthening every child's concept  of self-worth, starting from the  first day he or she enters school,  but the school can't do this alone.  We have a widespread human problem which will challenge the ingenuity, creativity and caring of  each community to help itself. It's  good "to know the school trustees  care and are concerned. !

"�����- Qn the morning of 14 May, I  ^was approached on the bridge of  ��jsthe'v Queen of Coquitlam by Mr.  fee Suveges. He insisted on talking to  3|me privately, and was anxious that  sg we should not be observed. He in-  tf formed me that he had opened,  Hentered, and searched the back of a  van on the car deck, and believed it  to be carrying dangerous cargo. He  insisted that he wished to remain  anonymous, since the van was  owned by a competitor in the  freight business. Presumably his  anonymity no longer concerns  him.  I thanked Mr. Suveges for his information, and told him the matter  would be dealt with. At no time  was it stated or implied by me that  the carriage of empty gas bottles  was legal, except under certain  specific circumstances. I passed the  details to our Operations Department at Horseshoe Bay, taking  care to proteckthe identity of Mr.  Anonymous, but describing the  circumstances. Arrangements were  made to have the van searched on  its return trip through Horseshoe  Bay.  Early next morning I was treated  tp another visit from Mr. Suveges  who barged onto the bridge and  demanded to know if his competitor had been charged. I was/  unable to advise him on this but  pointed out that prosecution was  not automatic. He then became  upset and abusive, and I informed  that if he was unhappy with our  handling of the matter, then he  should go to the RCMP and lay  charges himself. Understandably  this suggestion did not fill him with...  enthusiasm.  Mr. Suveges then left the bridge  with the parting declaration that he  intended to obtain some dynamite,  and transport it on the ferry as  soon as he was able.  Concerned   ferry   travelers   in  general, and Mr. Clint Suveges in  ,   particular, may be assured that the  .'������ ���.���ferry corporation will deal promptly with any contraventions of the  i |flangerous goods regulations which  ^J|ome to our attention. This may  ^^Mjnclude prosecution under the rele-  ^$Myant sections of the Canada Shipping Act.  'fM For anyone with an axe to grind,  *or a bunch of frustrations to  relieve, the ferry corporation  presents an easy and usually benign  target. It would be unwise,  however, for anyone to assume  that its individual employees can be  regarded in the same light.  I.M. Mackinnon, Master  M.V.

I  believe you also know me and my  family. However, I have decided to  answer your letter to the editor  publicly.  In last week's paper I read what  I believe to be your second letter  vehemently opposing the "pro-  lifers" stand. You prefer to call  your stand "pro-abortion". I  prefer to call it "anti-life".  Please, do not infer that to give  life to an unplanned child means  probable abuse. That is so far off  base that I can't ignore it. Check  those facts at our local department  of human resources office. They  will tell you the reasons for abuse  are many and complex.  Most parents who have had a  "surprise" baby soon learn to look  ;* forward lovingly to that birth.  * "Too often in the initial shock of  discovering an unplanned pregnancy, a doctor or a naive, but well-  meaning "friend" is only too quick  to recommend an abortion. The  mother usually gets little or no information on what will happen to  'her   or   to   her   growing   child  ' (foetus). So in her emotional state  -she accepts the advice.  M    An abortion is not a pleasant experience. Ask the nurses or doctors  ; who are on that list in the ad you  ' refer to. They will tell you the  ;;-; truth. Most often the experience  2 weighs in the back of the woman's  T mind for the rest of her life.  :": " You1 will' notice in most material  ^ from Planned Parenthood or any  'other   "anti-life"   group,   only  -clinical and impersonal words are  " used in reference to the baby and  few   if  any   pictures   are   used.  e Therefore, people too often tend to  forget it is indeed not a flower, or  - an animal, or an appendix, but a  human being which is developing  in the uterus.  I   thank   God   daily   for   our  children. I also thank God that the  -; natural   mothers   of   our   two  ^adopted children did not believe in  ^abortion!  If you honestly want the facts on  this cancer in our society called  abortion, please contact Pro-Life  or Birthright and get them straight.  Then form your opinion.  We are familiar with the horrors  of Hitler's extermination of the  6,000,000 Jews, mentally ill,  retarded, elderly and many other  "unnecessary" and helpless people  in German Europe during the '40s.  During that time, some tried to  speak out, but were labelled "sensationalists" and were also ignored. Today the holocaust is  renewed.  Already since abortion has been  legalized, too many infants have  been "exterminated" in hospitals  across our country. Between 1970  and 1982 according to Statistics  Canada, 658,405 livs have been lost  through abortion���66,319 in 1982  alone. (In the lasi 84 years in all the  wars in which Canada has fought,  99,449 Canadian soldiers lost their  lives.)  Many here too, have been brainwashed into a Hitler-type mentality. These babies are not wanted,  they will be an inconvenience, they  are not perfectly healthy, they are  jMjri the way, get rid of them.  . ���   Many will not try to look at the  facts as they really are.  I would like to thank and commend this newspaper for printing  the ad you mention. They showed  an open mindedness, responsibility  and courage that many newspapers  have lacked.  I am proud to be counted  amongst the "sensationalists" you  mention who helped sponsor the  ad.  Elaine Middleton  Research suggested  Editor:  I would like to comment on a  few points in Jeff Mulcaster's letter  in last week's paper.  I believe he is correct is saying  that most abortions are performed  within 12 weeks, but many are  done much later.  This doesn't justify the crime, in  fact there is no real limit to when  an unborn child can be aborted.  There is no substantial difference, in appearance, between an  unborn child at 12 weeks and at 19  weeks. I would like to point out  that all the body systems are present at eight weeks and are functioning at 11 weeks.  The pro-life ad was referred to  as "sensationalism" and "as blatant psychological abuse". As you  are probably aware, many  organizations do use scare tactics,  but we merely tried to portray the  beauty of human life. The ad was  meant to be tasteful, not tasteless,  and as Christians we should be doing our best to protect the precious  lives of these human beings.

Editor,  ' Linda Hallidayj founder of-Sexual Abuse Victims Anonymous,  recently conducted a series of  workshops on the Sunshine Coast.  Mrs. Halliday, herself a victim of  sexual abuse, is internationally  respected by experts who deal with  both offenders and victims. During  her two-day visit to the Sunshine  Coast she conducted a workshop  with staff at the Ministry of  Human Resources, another  workshop that was open to all interested professionals and a public  forum. She also spent time with  staff at the Wilson Creek Family  Centre and with members of both  local RCMP detachments. She  made time for individual interviews  with people who had concerns and,  literally, worked day and night.  She is a dedicated individual who,  irii;a few short" days, -provided' immeasurable help to our community  'with respect to coming to grips  with the problems of sexual abuse.  Mrs. Halliday's visit to the Sunshine Coast was made possible with  the help of the Sunshine Coast  Teachers* Association, the Wilson  Creek Family Centre, and the Gibsons United Church. We extend  our appreciation to all organizations that helped with this most  worthwhile event. I, personally,  would also like to thank Mr. Tim  Frizzell and Tony Rowley, local  Crown Counsel and, as well, both  detachments of the local RCMP  who actively participated in the  workshops.

Paul Gallagher  Principal  Pain Medication  Last time I mentioned that any chronic pain should be checked  by a doctor. Now we will look at the most commonly used pain  relievers. .  ASA - This common product relieves pain, fever and at high  doses, inflammation due to arthritis. To determine if this drug is  right for you, you and your pharmacist must weigh the benefit  with the risks associated with taking this drug.  The most commonly known problem is stomach irritation that  may even lead to bleeding stomachs.  Less known but still potentially dangerous effects are:  1) Interference with blood clotting in persons with a history of  coagulation defects. 2) Drug interactions with blood thinning  drugs, antidiabetic drugs, some drugs used to treat gout and in  combination with other drugs used to treat arthritis. 3) It may  lengthen the duration of pregnancy and clotting time^at birth  therefore check with your doctor if you are pregnant. 4) AS~ produces allergic reaction to certain types of asthmatics ranging  from rashes and swelling to life threatening asthmatic attacks.

Their philosophy which opposes  unions, social services, public  education, medicare, minimum  wage, etc. and their pervasive influence in this province is unacceptable to us.

The money was not given  by the RCMP but as a result of the  generosity of members of the  public who donated $1400 at an  annual hockey game organised by  the RCMP. The other half of the  money collected by the RCMP was  forwarded to another charity.  Many break-and-entries were  reported this week. On the 19th,  the Government Liquor Store in  Sechelt was broken into and a  quantity of beer and wine was  stolen. Thieves gained entry into  the store by smashing the front  window.  On the 20th, thieves entered the  Sechelt Auto Clinic premises and  sole two outboard motors valued  at $2100. A window was broken to  gain entry into the building.  On the same day, police received  report of an entry into a trailer  located in the Wilson Creek.area.  A quantity of meat was taken from  a freezer.  On the 22nd, Coast Video was  broken into and a VHF recorder  and some cassettes were stolen.  Also on the 22nd, the Second  Look Boutique was broken into  and $15 worth of cash was taken.  The report of a disturbance was  received by police from the Garden  Bay Hotel in the early morning  hours of the 19th. As a result of  police attendance, three youths  were arrested for being intoxicated  and held in cells overnight. They  were released the next day. No  charges were laid.  On the 20th, tires and wheels  were reported stolen from a vehicle  parked at the waterfront reserve.  A chainsaw valued at $180 was  reported stolen from a Sutherland  Road residence in Sechelt on the  21st.  A tire and wheel have been  found in the Madeira Park area.  They can be claimed at the Sechelt  detachment. Please quote file  number 84/1414 when claiming.  Vancouver man Ernie Stern  reported the loss of a red and black  Zodiac and a 25 HP Yamaha outboard motor from the beach area  in West Sechelt. If found please  notify the RCMP. Please quote file  number 84/1547.  Sechelt RCMP have finished  their first campaign1 period of the  B.C. Provincial Safety Program  which ran from April 20 to May  21.  There were a total of 35 hours of  roadblocks run during this period,  with approximately 1550 vehicles  passing through being checked.  Twelve persons were charged with  impaired driving and 18 others  were given 24 roadside suspensions.  Total provincial traffic charges  totalled 389 with 57 of those being  seat belt charges.  During this same period there  were two injury accidents in the  Sechelt area and 18 property  damage collisions.  The second campaign period will  be held from August 19 to  September 16, and will be very  similar to the first. Motorists can  be sure that with the upcoming  -holiday season approaching, that  Sechelt detachment will be maintaining the current level of enforcement to keep our highways safe for  all that use them.  & Sunshine Coast residents Ginny Derby, left, and Marilyn  |^ Giesbrecht, right, attended a recent workshop in Vancouver on  $* creating employment opportunities for severely mentally han-  *$ dicapped people, conducted by consultant Lee Valenta, center, of  & Seattle, Washington.

This is an open letter to p^nts  of ail young people everywh||e. I  am writing in response to so^of  the questions you ask me da||. I  am not one police officer, Mt I  represent every officer in every city  and town in Canada. '       \  You may only know me as,the  cop who gave you a ticket last 2uih-  mer, but I am also the guy wlib  lives down the street from yOti. I  am a parent of three children 4n'd I  share with you the same hope, ambition and dreams that you have  for your children. I am faced wife  the same problems you have. I  share with you those moments of  agony and ecstasy. I share with you  feelings of shame, guilt and disappointment when my boy or girl gets  into trouble.  The scene is a long stretch of  highway, with a sharp curve at one  end. It has been raining and the  roads were slick. A car travelling in  excess of 80 mph missed the curve  and plowed into an embankment  where it then became airborne and  struck a tree. At .this point, two of  the three young persons were hurled from the vehicle, one into the  tree, the other onto the roadway  where the car landed on him, snuffing out his life, like a discarded  cigarette on the asphalt. He is killed instantly, and he is the lucky  one.  The girl thrown into the tree has  her neck broken and although she  was voted queen of the senior  prom, and most likely to succeed,  she will now spend the next 60  years of her life in a wheelchair.  Unable to do anything else, she  will live and relive that terrible moment over again many times. When  I arrive, the car has come to rest on  its top, the broken wheels have  stopped   spinning.   Smoke1' and  stream pour out of the engine ripped from its mounting by a terrible  force. An eerie calm has settled  over  the  scene  and  it  appears  deserted except for the one lone  traveller who called it in. He is sick  to his stomach and leaning against  his car for support. The driver is  conscious but in shock and unable  to free himself from under the bent  twisted steering column. His face  will be forever scarred by deep cuts  from   broken  glass  and  jagged  metal. Those cuts will heal, but the  ones inside cannot be touched by  the skilled surgeon's scalpel. The  third passenger has almost stopped  bleeding,, the seat and his clothing..  are covered in blood from an artery  cut in his arm by the broken bone  end that protrudes from this  forearm just below the elbow. His  breath comes in gasps as he tries  desperately to suck air past his  blood-filled airway. He is unable to  speak, and his eyes, blue and fixed  on me pleadingly, are the only  communication that he is terrified  and wants my help. I feel a pang of  guilt and recognize him as the boy I  let off with a warning the other  night for an open container of  alcohol in his car. Maybe if I had  cited him then, he wouldn't be here  now. Who knows? I don't.  He died soundlessly in my arms,  his pale blue eyes staring vacantly  as if trying to see into the future he  will never have. I remember watching him play basketball and  wonder what will happen to the  scholarship he will never use. Dully, my mind focusses on a loud  screaming and I identify it as the'  girl who was thrown from the vehicle. I race to her with a blanket but  -am afraid to move her. Her head is  tilted at an exaggerated angle. She  seems unaware of my presence  there and whimpers for her mother  like a little child. In the distance, I  hear the mournful wail of the ambulance winding its way through  the rainy night. I am filled with incredible grief at the waste of so  valuable a resource - our youth.  I am sick with anger and frustration with parents and leaders who  think that a little bit of alcohol  won't hurt anything. I am filled  with contempt for people who propose lowering the drinking age  because they will get booze  anyway, so why not make it legal. I  am frustrated with laws, court rulings, and other legal manoeuvring  that restrict my ability to do my job  in preventing this kind of tragedy.  The ambulance begins the job of  scraping up and removing the dead  and injured. I stand by watching as  hot tears mingle with rain and drip  off my cheeks. , I would give  anything to know who furnished  those young people with that  booze. As I clear the scene, I will  spend several hours on reports and  several months trying to erase from  my memory the details of that  night. I will not be alone. The  driver will recover and spend a  lifetime trying to forget. I know  that eventually the memory of this  fatal acccident will be diluted and  mixed with other similar accidents  I will be called upon to cover.  . . .Yes, Iianrangryand^ick at heart  with trying to do my job and being  Trustee presses  for drug policy  Trustee Muryn, who made it  clear last November that her concern was drug and alcohol abuse  among students, continued her''  campaign to enlarge and widen the  scope of programmes already in  schools which encourage children  to discuss arid evaluate problems of  everyday life.  She hopes they will become an  accepted essential in the curriculum  from kindergarten to grade 12 as a  way of helping children set standards for themselves and cope with  peer pressure, media pressure and  the many ways we come to be controlled by often unnoticed forces in  our society.  As   a   result,   Superintendent  Denley has arranged for in-depth  reports to the board at the next  meeting (June 12 at Egmont) by  those teachers and counsellors who  are already experienced.  Rather than immediate support  for Trustee Muryn's wish to ask  the Union Board of Health to try  to get a treatment centre for  alcohol and drug abuse for the  Coast, the board asked that they  investigate the incidence of teenage  drug and alcohol abuse in this area,  assuring them of the school  board's support and concern, but  wishing to know exactly what the  situation is before deciding how  best that support should be given.  Planner reports on  community plan progress  Regional planner Judy Skogstad  brought area E residents up to date  on the current status of their area  settlement plan at a recent meeting  of the Elphinstone Electors'  Association.  Skogstad noted that studies on  population saturation points, soil  slippage and slopes, and water and  sewage needs have been completed,  and now under study are community services, including those  available in nearby Gibsons, and  residential areas.  After these technical studies and  the terrain analysis are completed,  the planner will study the original  draft plan to determine how the  terrain capability and suitability  for development fit in with  residents' expressed wishes for the  direction of development of their  area.  In response to a concern that  certain areas were becoming  waterlogged, which had previously  always been dry, Skogstad suggested that while individual sub-  divisons had dealt with their own  particular drainage needs, there  was no co-ordinated, overall  drainage plan for the whole area.  Skogstad expressed the optimistic hope that integration of the  various studies might be completed  by July.  tagged the bad guy. I pray to God  that I might never have to face  another parent in the middle of the  night and say your son, Bill, or  your daughter, Susan, has just  been killed in a car accident.  You ask me why did this happen? It happened because a young  person, stoned out of his mind  thought he could handle two tons  of hurtling death at 80 mph. It  happened because an adult trying  to be a "good guy" bought for or  sold to some minor, a case of beer.  It happened because you as parents  weren't concerned enough about  your child to know where he was  and what he was doing; and you  were unconcerned about minors  and alcohol abuse and would  rather blame me for harassing  them when I was only trying to prevent this kind of tragedy. It happened because, as people say, you  believe this sort of thing only happens to someone else.        .,..,-  For your sake, I hope it doesn't  . happen to you, but if you continue  to regard alcohol abuse as part of  growing up, then please keep'your  porch light on because some cold  rainy night, you will find,.me at  your doorstep, eyes downcast, staring at my feet, with a message of  death for you.

As well, Bob has gleaned every  "jbit of information he could from  "fhe talk of the old seamen he has  hiet, seamen from the days of sailing ships who remembered how  ���'ships were rigged and built and  Repaired. All in all Bob has built up  t^an encyclopedic knowledge of sailing ships and their gear.  ���?   There's an intense pride in Bob  ^���Wilson that demands work ably  $done. In fact he looks for perfection in all he does. There's a deep-seated love of ships and from this  Springs his pursuit of the almost  lost trade of ship rigger.  ��  "His interest began when he was  ijfa teenager," his mother and dad  |say, "and the one who sparked  what  interest  was  Earl  Bingley,  ^himself a Grand Banks fisherman  gin the days of sailing ships."  ��3   The article by Sean Russell in  b Wilson and his boat Mor-  fmn* Maid under sail.  lv  X  Sailing gives a glimpse or two of  Bob Wilson at work with serving  mallet and marlinspike parcelling a  wire, and serving it marlin to make  a round splice. "I've given up  power tools," Bob is quoted. "No  feel for the wood with them."  Bob says he gets kidded about  turning the calendar back and  working in the last century, "But,"  he says, "shaping a spar with a  draw knife is slower all right, yet  it's a thorough method to ensure  perfect work." And the hardwoods���yew, ash, oak, and lignum  vitae���seem to respond better to  hand tools, Bob believes.  Bob built a 15-foot day sailer in  Gibsons when he was in his late  teens. Later after some years working on tugboats along the coast,  Bob acquired a ferro-cement hull  built for him by Jack Gooldrup in  Pender Harbour. This is his  32-foot cutter Mornin' Maid, now  home to him and companion  Estaire Blackburn, a sailmaker,  and their headquarters while on a  job of rigging a vessel. From two  older men, a Glasgow shipwright  and an Atlantic fisherman, Bob  learned the techniques of the gaff  rigging that the Mornin' Maid carries.  Between jobs Bob has time to  cruise and keep his skills as a skipper and sailor honed to a keen  edge. There's another man of ships  in the family too, in brother David  who skippers a ferry and charter  service out of Toronto.  Asked about the destination of  the 12 copies of Staling, Dad and  Mom Wilson, justly proud, say,  "For cousins and aunts and uncles.  We want to be sure they know  about our Bob."  Boat  exams  The Canadian Marine Rescue  Auxiliary (CMRC) is primarily a  search and rescue organization  providing volunteer resources to  assist the Canadian Coast Guard  with the saving of lives at sea.  In an effort to help reduce the  need for search and rescue, auxiliary members also conduct  courtesy small vessel examinations.  These courtesy examinations are  designed to help the boat owner  "prepare his vessel for emergencies  and when^gogmpleted,.ensureithe  owner that his oPat ^complies with  the small vessel regulations.     ^ ;  Interested boaters should contact the Canadian Marine Rescue  Auxiliary in Vancouver at  736-5055, or the Coast Guard  Anniversary notes  by George Cooper  f-.   j* "You know, when they played *I  jjiove You Truly' and the4Anniversary -Waltz' I was really touched  ||nd I had to brush away a tear or  |wo. I'd sung those songs and  |>thers like them for other folks'  ijveddings and celebrations and  how I was hearing them just for me  |nd Dick."  | Eva Oliver was happily recollecting their 50th wedding anniversary  gathering at Harmony Hall on  Saturday, May 19 when the Har-  Sjnony singers accompanied by  ifeteve White presented her  favourites of the songs popular a  jigeneration ago.  *Jr"When the group sang 'Baby  pice''both Dick and I were happily  reminded of the evening we first  fast and that song was just out and  flie hit of the dance program that  $ght."  J- Dick and Eva Oliver retired to  Gibsons in 1969 from years of  operating bowling alleys on Vancouver Island. Dick had worked in  the Victoria shipyards in the war  years as well, and upon retiring to  Qibsons he went working as a  jSnitor in Gibsons Elementary for  a few years more. In his spare time  Dick helped with kids baseball.  Eva's family have lived in Gibsons for many years. Her brother  Ed Connor operated the bowling  alley here until his retirement. Her  parents lived here in the district in  the 1920's and 30's.  When younger members of  Eva's family began arrangements  for the anniversary, they included  writing to the premier, the prime  minister, and the governor-general  to request cards of congratulation.  But Eva could not find the marriage certificate. "It's not  something you frame and hang on  the wall," she said. But her soon-  to-be grandson-in-law, a lawyer,  solved that problem by writing for  official duplicates to the Seattle  registry where Eva and Dick were  married in 1934.  "We'll put those congratulations up on the bulletin in Harmony Hall when they arrive," says  Eva, "along with some of the  splendid photos we got from the  Coast News." The Olivers say  thank you to everyone who helped  with the gathering in Harmony  Hall, "And I'd recommend Klaus  Catering to anyone," Eva added.  Part-time teaching  urged by BCSTA  1  I One of the resolutions passed at  &e recent B.C.

The need exists to attract and  maintain, in the public schools, enthusiastic and dedicated newly-  graduated professionals who, faced with little or no opportunity for  employment, will turn to other occupations. This in turn could produce an acute teacher shortage in  future years.  BE IT RESOLVED  That school boards encourage  part-time teaching in order to offer  appointments to recent graduates  and other teachers without positions.

As expected, they drew  some of the older crowd but the  younger patrons were also appreciative.  The group's repertoire covered the  whole gamut from rock 'n roll to  calypso, but it was all familiar and  most people were singing along if  only under their breath. A few of  the old smoothies put on a nice  show on the dance floor and there  were even a couple of volunteers to  do the bird dance (would you  believe Frank Zantolas for one?).  It wasn't a large crowd but  everybody there thoroughly enjoyed the evening and asked that  "The GGs" come back. You bet.  Watch this column for the next  date.

On stage during the official  opening was Gibsons' Mayor  Laurent Labonte and his wife, who  joined in a silent word of non-  denominatioiial respect "for  whatever faith people had". This  Ilvas noteworthy because the Gib-  Sons mayor has been absent from  {Timber Days in years past, and an  ppen attitude about religious affiliation is most certainly unusual  n this Christian dominated socie-  y.  At the conclusion of the three-  nay affair, Mayor Kolibas greeted  national NDP leader Ed Broad-  pent, who stopped by briefly with  $is good wishes.

If you are a qualified member,  you will have received in the mail a  call to an Extra-ordinary General  Meeting, to be held in the Senior  Citizens' Hall on Thursday, June 7  at 1:30 p.m., to discuss and ratify  (by secret ballot) the purchase of a  piece of property due north of the  Arts Centre.  This meeting will give you an opportunity to ask the many questions which will spring to mind,  and members of the committee  should have the answers and be  able to reveal their thoughts as to  future possibilities.  If for some reason you have not  received a copy of the call and wish  further information, you may  telephone one of the following  numbers: 885-2403, 885-2878,  885-2182.

I phoned him and got much the  same story. He is not current in  some of his information (who  owns which hotel, where food is  now consistently good, etc.); in  short, he opened his mouth and  flapped.  However, what he first said on  the radio was not half as damaging  as what he has said since being egged (root word: ego) on by an interviewer interested in sensational  reporting. Why are we being subjected to this?  The first time on the radio, Al  said that one fish place served the  only passable fish and chips on the  Coast. Big deal! We can weather  that and let it go by, but the storm  created by irresponsible "There  must be a story in this!" reporting  has just pushed it all into big time  stupidity and ego-maintenance sessions. Yuck!  Direct your anger where it  belongs���at sensationalism by both  the interviewer and the interviewee.  There now has been damage done.  Thank you both very much.  Handicapped  seek support  by Joan Cowderoy, Coordinator  Having recently embarked upon  the long journey of re-organization  and expansion; the local association serving handicapped people  on the Sunshine Coast is looking  for assistance from as wide a variety of interested parties as possible.  In years past, care for the handicapped rested primarily with the  family. Energies of family members were often taxed to the limit,  where burnout was common and  handicapped adults had minimal  involvement with the community  at large.  More recently a few additional  supports have been provided  through government services.  However, it is becoming clearer  each day that, if handicapped  adults are to become active contributing community members, we,  the community, need to give them  and their families our  wholehearted support.  Now is your chance to discover  how you can help. Committees  have been established to work on  program development in vocational training and life skills, work  contracts,   fund   raising,   public  education, policy development,  family supports, housing and other  needed areas. The association also  plans to hold a weekend session in  mid June to review its philosophy,  goals and objectives. AU interested  community members will be invited to share in the process.  If you have a particular skill or  interest in any area outlined above,  your help is urgently needed. Get  involved to actively support these]  important members of our com?  munity. M'  Other groups needing volunteer  help are: Meals on Wheels - a  driver for Fridays in Sechelt; Gibsons pool - an aquatics assistant to  work with a handicapped adult  male; Unemployment Action Centre - advocates to handle cases  where clients are having difficulty  with Unemployment Insurance or  Social Assistance claims; Adult  Day Care - a fourth for bridge once  a week and a companion for a  client with Alzheimer's disease;  Human Resources - someone to  assist a mother with speech therapy  for her child who is deaf.  If you want to help with any of  the above, contact the Volunteer  Action Centre at 885-5881 to  register.

EUROPEAN ADVENTURE  Hazel Ellis of Redrooffs recently  returned from a two-month visit  overseas. Together.with her sister  from Vancouver, Hazel visited  with her niece and husband at  Kirkness which is on the most northern part of Norway. There was  24 hours of daylight which made it  confusing as to when to go to bed.  The trip was most interesting  and enjoyable as their hosts are  producers of documentary films,  one of which was entered in the  film festival at Oberhausen and  which won the Grand Jury International Award.

There were three salient points they  felt important:  l)That the Government was attempting to do too much too fast,  without enough understanding.  "The Minister is trying to put  a new process for the future into  place, but the future needs haven't  yet been evaluated" said  Superintendet Denley.  2)Small secondary schools like  ours will be at a disadvantage if required to carry eight electives.  3)Small school districts will not  be able to offer career preparation  programmes without significant  financial aid.  A committee was asked to  organize the letter in accordance  with the spirit of the discussion and  also to write to support the  BCSTA's call for a Royal Commission to study education in this province.  ing their busy itinerary.  When asked to name her  favourite place visited on the trip,  Hazel replied that they were all  favourite.

(Next  to provincial park.)  x-tm  t^M0&^%*&{x \xxx<m^mm^mmmm  mm  Residents of the Middlepoint  area are in "no man's land" when  it comes to fire protection, area B  regional director Pat Murphy  stated in response to a letter from  Mr. John Hedderson received at  the board's last meeting.  Murphy pointed out that, for insurance purposes, neither the Halfmoon Bay nor the Pender Harbour  Volunteer Fire Departments can go  further than a five-mile radius  from their respective firehalls. (If  they do, residential insurance rates  go up.) This leaves an area of approximately 2.9 miles between the  two fire protection districts  without fire protection.  Regional board chairman Jim  Gurney noted that there is also a  problem with water supply in that  area.  Hedderson had written to the  board asking for guidance in  establishing fire protection for  Middlepoint, but with the restrictions on the existing fire departments and the prohibitive cost of  establishing a satellite station, the  board could only move to write to  Hedderson, answering his questions and explaining "how  hopeless the situation is".  Hedderson has scheduled z  public information meeting at the  Madeira Park Firehall on Saturday, June 2, at 7:30 to discuss the  matter.

This time It's a why about gardening���strawberries In particular. I mean, I have pampered my strawberries to the  hilt���but do I get any���no! Something else always gets there  before I do and it's not even the kids. I started by making  them a lovely raised bed in a sunny spot. I tucked straw  -. under the babies so that they'd be protected from slugs and  have something dry to flourish on. Then I hung strings in a  complex network overhead and dangled aluminium foil  strips over them to frighten the birds. When my friendly  garden robin showed me that didn't work, I purchased an expensive sheet of vinyl netting and tucked it over and around  the ripening lovelies. I burnt every tent caterpillar in sight, I  put saucers of beer down for the slugs, and still something  with sharp jaws gets there before me! I am now thinking of  setting up an all night vigil���and it's such a luscious crop! If  you're getting better luck than I am, try the following.

When they are left outdoors, on, or  near the street, on the ramp, or on the wharf, night  time vandals, (fun-loving adolescents) either ride  around in, and wreck our carts, or throw them overboard Into the ocean.  Last year we found It necessary to buy 25 carts to  replace lost and broken ones, at a cost of almost  $2,000. It seems that in one year, we are back to the  point where we need another 25 carts. A considerable  number have been retrieved as wrecks out of the  ocean and some are still there.  "REAL WIN"  K.L.D. Winner  #197  Emma Butcher  Gibsons  $50 Grocery DtawWiWer  When people use OUI carts to wheel their groceries  home, they are, In effect, removing from our premises  an asset which we cannot use until It Is returned.  Many people who walk to shop, have purchased  their own grocery carts at a cost far less than a commercial grocery cart.  Many people have also been most kind and concerned, and have phoned when they saw a stray cart In  some blind alley. We frequently drive for blocks  around town to locate and return bur carts. This is an  extra cost and should not be necessary.  Henceforth, we must Insist that NO carts be removed  from our premises without permission, and on permission, if granted, said carts are to be returned promptly.  iGIBSOiVSl  IIISII!

Fourteen artists from the Sunshine Coast had  works accepted, ami two of them  Christel Fuoss for her sculpture,  and Eve Smart for her painting,  received honourable mention.  Congratulations!  CRTC  gets mail  Your letters and petitions have  been sent to both the CRTC and  CKVU with a brief submitted by  the Suncoast Television Society  asking for time to make a presentation at the hearing.  The hearing will take place in  Victoria in the week of June 18. If  enough people are able to go we  could perhaps hire a bus, but the  best way to participate and let the  commission know your views is to  put them on videotape.  This can be done through the cooperation of Coast 10 Community  TV, whiclj wjll hpld taping^essions M  on May 31 at the Coast Cablevision  Office in Sechelt at 8 p.iitt and at  the Coast 10 studio at Elphinstone  School on June 1 at 5 p.m.  Come and have your say, and  bring the children too. We'd like a  representative cross-section of the  community to present to the hearing.  A one-woman show by the well-  known local artist Trudy Small will  make up the new exhibition at the  Sunshine Coast Arts Centre in  Sechelt. Open to the public as of  Wednesday, may 30, there will be a  reception on the following Saturday, June 2 from 1-4 p.m. to meet  the artist.  Trudy Small is a serious, committed artist who nevertheless considers art is both fun and therapy.  Throughout her many years as an  artist, she has continually experimented with different media,  techniques and ideas. This exhibition, consisting of some of her  most recent work, will show paintings, collages and crafts, many of  them with a bird motif, many of  them using materials picked up  from bazaars and many of them  funky.

The court-  try is still semi-desert for the most  part, broken by patches of meagre  grassland where, meagre cattle  graze. The road stretches ahead of  us, dwindling into dun infinity.  The land is sparsely peopled and  there are long stretches between  towns. Strangely, the weather remains mild. We have experienced  no real heat since the inland valleys  of California.  The mesas have largely petered  out now and the land stretches unbroken to the horizon. We bore on  through these rather boring vistas  for several hours. At length we pull  into the town of Tucumcari on the  Texas border. The odd name of  this place once inspired the lyrics of  an obscure popular song that  neither of us can clearly recall. - ~  We stop ,pff at'a Safeway for  crackers, cheese and cans of fruit  juice. Tucumcari is the limit of our  eastern push for the moment.  From this point, we head north.  The protective clouds have  broken at last and we begin to appreciate how hot this country is  normally capable of getting. "Air  conditioner time," says Yvonne,  flicking a switch and we trundle off  into Texas in the sweltering southwestern sun.  We cut across the narrow, topmost corner of northern Texas.  This is grain and cow country, dotted with red barns and water-tanks.  Cattle bask bovinely in the afternoon heat. A dry wind blows insistently from the west, broad-  siding the car with gusty fists.  In seemingly no time, we are  across Texas and entering the even-  narrower Oklahoma panhandle.  The identical terrain is devoted to .  identical purposes - wheat and  cows - cows and wheat. We pass  through one odd little wooded area  but for the most part, the land is  treeless.  The panhandle is soon behind us  and we enter Kansas. We pass .  through several rundown-looking  farm communities and reach the  town of Minneola. "The Dalton  Gang Hid out Here," proclaims a  sign. ''Visit Our Outlaw's  Museum". Hell, we'd like to but .  Minneola is small potatoes compared to where we are heading.  Yvonne turns north again.  Night blows like smoke  across the patternedflat land  gold fires the horizon  the sun falls over the edge  of Kansas.  Time slows to an odd crawl  at the outskirts of Dodge City  it moves away from us like  a mirage  the car creeps through  remember ing shadows.  Here in a trail-town sprung from  an Army camp  in the turmoil of another century  the Old West paused for a moment  to count her rabble sort out her  heroes.  These are the precincts of legend  Wyatt Earp rode through this  same dusk  Bat Masterson tested his gunhand  here  Doc Holliday coughed from bottle  to bottle.  Here were the archetypes forged  in the dust of a harsher reality  not guessing their ghosts would  march forth  to fuel a million sagebrush  fantasies.  But what of the town today?  Vainly I try to envision it  as we inch through endless minutes  across the time-warped plain.  After eternity...Dodge  it flaunts its modernity at us  brighter with neon than prairie  moonlight  a city like any city.  But it has its peculiarities  we know where we are by the  names  Earp Burgers Masterson  Laundromats -  they do right by their gunslingers  here.  And they've tossed up a-shrinefor  their phantoms  a carboard street with a  Longbranch Saloon  where they only serve soda pop  and thirsty Doc Holliday scowls  from his photograph.

Mid-week problems with  relatives and/or. neighbours not  settled until weekend. Romance  and pleasurable pastimes favoured  Sunday and Monday. Be cautious  in discussions and not start trouble  by careless remark.  TAURUS (April 19-May 19)  Don't rock the boat even the  slightest this week as trends show  you might lose heavily. Be especially co-operative and charming even  if it kills you. Next week, you'll be  glad you did, when trends become  favourable for business and relationships.  GEMINI (May 20-June 19)  Early week tensions between  your personal expression and someone blocking them riled you.  Peculiar events affect those close to  you mid-week leaving you  somewhat confused, by weekend.  Best to secure your financial  holdings and refuse to meet legal  matter until next week. Stick to  one project until done or you'll feel  your efforts are wasted.  CANCER (June 20-July 21)  Busy ] week is punctuated. by  social activity. Mid-week, new  moon shows personal matters  recently neglected come back to  haunt you. Friends respond to  your warmth and may surprise you  with a small gift.  LEO ��July 22-Aug. 22)  Week starts with boost from  wo"?K-mate. Mid-week new moon  warns that you limit your social activities selectively to most produc- /  tive ones. Unexpected changes may  trigger an impulsive tongue. Bite it  from .-speaking   or   you'll/be  alienated by others.  VIRGO (Aug. 23.Sept.21)  - ���Discussions - abduf" academics  meet   opposition   by   local  authorities   early  week.   Professional reputation is challenged by  spontaneous event in community  mid-week. Tensions in home and  work dissolve by applying charm  and sense of humour. Spend evening solo at weekend to energize for  week ahead.  LIBRA (Sept. 22-Oct. 22)  Early week work fluctuations  best handled with wise decisions. A  legal matter peaks mid-week which  may alter vacation plans. Distant  news not good causing some disappointments in plans. Watch spen- ,  ding at weekend.  by Sandra Emerson  SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 22)  This week brings glad tidings  about a partner's income, and you  get a tax rebate, more than you  figured. Hold off spending or  making a money decision until next  week when you are clearer on fine  points. Fluctuations in professional  areas grates your temper.  SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 20)  This week's early concerns about  dispute or legal matter may cause  you to feel more restless than  usual. Relationships are testy and  health matters need attention.  Good news at weekend favours  socializing.  CAPRICORN (Dec. 21-Jan. 20)  Disputes with loved ones begin  this week marking changes in  plans. A job or health related matter clouds mid-week as well as a  legal matter. Weekend favours  romantic duo.  AQUARIUS (Jan. 21-Feb. 18)  Children and sweethearts seem  to irritate you early this week spilling over at work. Accent the  humour in your situation to avoid  being offensive. A long term group  endeavour may end if you don't  reach an understanding.  PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)  Home matters are touchy and  anything could trigger a" nasty  result early in week. Antagonistic  neighbours are plotting disruption  and will use any excuse to pounce.  Don't become victim, seek  alliances.

Coast well represented  -Lynn I Jndsay pholo  Health convention report  by Peggy Connor  "The recently opened Eagleridge  Hospital in Port Moody is the last  scheduled health facility to be  built". This was the statement  made by the Honourable Jim  Neilsen, Minister of Health at the  B.C. Health Association Convention banquet Wednesday, May 2,  at the Hotel Vancouver.  This of course means that the lid  is still on and isn't exactly news.  Concurrently with the British  Columbia Health Association convention the British Columbia  Associated Hospital Auxiliaries  were holding their fortieth annual  meeting with the theme "We  Care".  Attending from St. Mary's  Hospital Auxiliary, Sunshine  Coast were Betty Laidlaw, Mary  Macdonald, Carol Rigby and  Peggy Connor, also from this auxiliary was the lower mainland area  representative Pauline Lamb.  One of the Fine speakers for the  convention was lawyer Mr Janice  Dillon who spoke on "Cessation of  Treatment" saying to treat or not  to treat is a decision that should  ^nbt be made in law, then went on  to explain the reasons law became  involved. The reasons were consideration of rapidly expanding  medical technology, fear "bf Iitiga-M  tion by health officials, awareness  of patient rights.  Four workshops were run concurrently: "The Myths and  Realities of Aging", "Is There  Anything I can do to help?", and  two programs on conducting in-  service training, one for a larger  and one for a smaller hospital.  Ms Jean M. Buzan spoke on the  aging myths, calling it the "cage of  age", the stereotyping of people by  age is unjustified said Ms Buzan, as  age isn't really important. "People  feel they must do such and such or  not do somethings just because  they have reached a certain age,  and that is nonsense."  Ms Buzan herself with no formal  education went to university at age  50, taught for a few years and now  she is retired at 65. With the feeling  of never again being accountable to  anyone, she is now working as a  consultant. The phrase she recommends is older people not elderly.  Mrs. Shirley Powell, coordinator living skills programs  headed the workshop that focussed  on grief, loss, anger and listening  skills. Despite the seriousness of  this subject it was handled so well  that those taking it left feeling very  uplifted and better able to deal  with any problems.  A panel discussion and question  period was held with the topic  "The Role of the Auxiliaries in the  Health Care Field". The panel  consisted of a board chairman, an  administrator, a volunteer director,  a patient, an auxiliary president  and a HLRA research assistant  who had many questions fired at  him dealing with labour relations.  The overlaying feeling from all  panelists was that auxiliaries are  prime necessities in the health care  field and while the hospitals could  run without them the patients  would be the losers.  Another speaker. Dr. James P.  :^Schirfti^-s|k>k<BMdfi'v"Stress in the  Hospital: Recognizing and Coping  with It".  When Mrs. Marion Osenton  finished speaking on the need to be  involved in CPR, those present  who had not taken the course were  ready to dash out and enroll.  The final speaker Mrs. Evelyn  Daly spoke on time management  for volunteers, a subject for  everyone.  There was the usual time to meet  and talk with other auxiliary  members from around B.C. where  much information is exchanged.

A brand new sport, Beater Racing, bora last Sunday, was entered  as a Timber Days event. The ra|e  attracted six old trucks which coir^M  peted for trophies and prizes.     C  Carol Southin originated the  idea when her husband Steve  brought home, to her dismay, a  beat up old half-ton truck. Carol's  teasing about beaters, dogs, and  typical junk in back, led to a  Timber Days spoof and pretty  soon everybody wanted to get involved.  Six old beates competed for the  Beastly Beater Award, during the  Timber Days parade judging, it  was won by Jerry Grunek, who  wor a shirt and blond wig and added to his beater a tongue hanging  out under a fish pole holding old  nuts and bolts. (Photo was on last  week's front page.)  During the time elimination  event May 21, the beater pilot, accompanied by his beater buddy, a  dog, was tested for skill and speed  on an obstacle course.  At the starter's gun, the pilot  jumped out and attached jumper  cables to start the truck, raced to  the end of the track and bucked a  16 inch log with a chainsaw, split it  in four pieces, raced to the other  end, changed a tire, circled the  track again and stopped. Pilot then  legged it to the finish line for a one  gallon can of gas, fed it to the  beater and dashed to the finish  line, and stopped as close as possible to the axe handle.  While the six contestants went  through the paces/Steve Southin  kept the crowd laughing with his  cheeky reports, particularly during  the tire changing event.  Capturing the first prize trophy  with a time of 6:43 minutes was  Tony Petula. Second was Jerry  Grunek n 7:49 minutes and third  was Bill fiiggs in 8:02 minutes.  Fourth runner-up, Walter Tripp's  beater buddy Pluto, won first for  the most enthusiastic beater buddy.  He barked and watched enthusiastically with tongue hanging  out during all the eyents.   ;  The other contestants, Chris  Speight and Odie (9:05) and Bill  Levene with is dog (15:42) were  awarded dog food and participation plaques.  Frpth the fairw/ay  Golfers battle weather  by,Ernie Hume  James McCarthy, Black Belt,  shows fighting form.  On Monday, May 21, the Mixed  Twilight group held a 4-person  scramble. The team of Eleanor  Thompson, Wolfgang Reiche,  Elsie Cupit and Ed Dory captured  first low net with an IS'A score.  Second low net was Dawn  Bayford, Bob Knight, Bridgette  Reiche and Lyle Brock shooting a  19'/2.  An extraordinary low putt score  was achieved with the team of Edna Fisher, Bob Emerson, Ellen  Brock and Lex Cowley taking only  8 putts for 9 holes.  Once again ladies day was rained  out. This seems to be a habit on  Tuesdays, but I'm sure it will  change soon.  On Thursday, the senior men  had 60 players on hand to participate in a 4-man team, low gross,  low net event. Bill Gibbons, Jack  Ross and Bob Scott took first low  net with a low 13714 score. Second  low net went to George Grant, Art  hauka, Alex Warner and Torre  Orre, shooting a 138.  The regular number 8 and 17  tees are expected to be in service  early in June! \  There seems to be some com-'  plaints about slow play on the fair-1  ways.

Clean-up week  At the request bf the federal  government, Mayor Joyce Kolibas  has declared June 3 to 9 "Canadian Environment Week". This  week provides a great opportunity  for entire communities to  rediscover their regional parks,  beaches and forests and to reflect  on the importance of a clean and  healthy environment.  Past special events in other  towns celebrating this week, included sports activities, advertisements on shopping bags, lectures, clean-up campaigns and  school activities. Sechelt council  discussed contacting the schools  for their participation.  ���Nevillt Conway photo  Karate flourishes  Gibsons Shito-Ryu Karate Club  opened its doors in Spetember  1981; all members at that time were  classified White Belt, the beginning  classification for karate skills.

The four  guardsmen who have been  "found" after several years are being tried for the murders of the  four nuns and this is proof that the  human rights record is improved.  Those death squads which nobody  seems responsible for and no one  can control continue killing almost  300 people a month in a country  just a bit larger than Vancouver  Island and the hopes are that the  new president will stop the rightw-  ing killings.  The above paragraph is the basic  slant of most media coverage about  El Salvador and I would like to  present evidence that this information is erroneous���a part of the  smoke screen of misinformation  put out to forstall the public learning the reality behind Reagan's  Central American policy.  Al Nair, speaking on the Peter  Gzowski show on CBC told of recent investigations of the  Salvadorean army, security forces,  the National Police and the  Treasury police. In dozens of interviews with high ranking officers  their testimony admitted to the  direct involvement of the CIA in  the collection of information on  dissidents, the filing of this information within various agencies and  the training in.the United States of  ORDEN officers. ORDEN is a  part of the rural paramilitary network which has been considered  the backbone of the death squads.  Jose Alberto Madrano, the head  of the National Intelligence Network, has been on the CIA payroll  since the early '60s according to US  diplomats, he was a guest of the  CIA and travelled with the green  berets in Vietnam where "Rural  Pacification Programme" was being established. This programme  was nicknamed "Operation  Phoenix" and was basically a last  ditch effort to stop the growhing  strength in the hamlets of the Viet  Getting ready to release balloons to say "Hello" from Gibsons is  .;-head clown Joanie Thompson, who organized the "Parade of  f�� Clowns" through Clown Town last Sunday afternoon.  ���Sandy Kmerson photo  Sechelt Garden Club  by Jack McLeod  At the May meeting of the  Sechelt Garden Club we heard  from two of our members, Tarn  Johnson and Barry Willoughby.  Tarn gave the members a talk on  the creation of the substance we  ��� know as soil.  Many, many ages ago, the surface of this planet was rock, very  large and strong rock. Great  pressure from the centre of earth  caused plates of this rock to be  pushed outward, and as a result  some plates were pushed back and  forth on other plates. Thus was  started the formation of soil.  Many other factors added to the  breakdown of the rock such as the  sun, rain, snow, wind, animals,  and of course, humans.  When we look at our own Rocky  Mountains and other great ranges,  it will be realized that only a small  portion of the great mass of rock  has been reduced to soil.  Barry  Willoughby,   our  presi  dent, brought to the meeting a container that held a variety of plants  which combined to make a most  effective show.  The clerk is preparing for the  late summer show and plant sale to  be held in the Sechelt Senior  Citizens' Hall on September 15.  We look forward to seeing you  there!  Murphy  director of  lung ass'n  Mr. R.W. King, president of the  British Columbia Lung Association, has announced the election of  Mrs. Patricia Murphy, of Sechelt,  as a director of the association.  Mrs. Murphy will serve as  Christmas Seal committee chairman for this area during the 1984  Christmas Seal Campaign.  Pottery  Sale  Sat., June 9, 1984  10 a.m. - 4 p.m.  Handcrafted  by  Pat Forst  Cong. In Vietnam, this programme  was headed by Roy Prosterman, a  professor who has witten extensively about methods of circumventing  revolution and basically amounts  to the compiling of information on  all known leaders and sending out  "hit" teams to carry out mass executions. Interesting that there is a  Rural Pacification Programme in  El Salvador and Roy Prosterman is  in charge of the operation.  Nair, in his interview with  Gzowski, told of countless conversations with national intelligence  officers from El Salvador who  openly admit to receiving payment  and training from the CIA. When  D'Abusson went on TV and listed  known communists, most of these  people were missing within the  following weeks. Major Oscar Cer-  rato, a key collaborator of  D'Abusson, said much of the information had come from the  CIA.  Because of D'Abusson's open  connections with the death squads,  the US government didn't want  him to lead the country, so, according to a special article by Jeff  Gerth in the New York Times, the  CIA contributed more than $1.4  million to two political parties in El  Salvador as part of a total of $2.1  million spent on the election. A  Reagan administration official, in  a statement made on May 11 to the  New York Times, siad $960,000  was given to El Salvador's Christian Democratic Party to support  the successful candidacy of President Jose Napoleon Duarte. The  National Conciliation Party also  received $437,000 to help its candidate Francisco Jose Guerrero.  Throughout all of this manipulation of Salvadorean politics, there  is one other side pf a picture we  rarely view. These are the people  the parties and the general population who actively support the coalition of the FDR FMLN. In over  one third of the country, the FDR  has held democratic elections and  actively administers to the heeds of  the people. Those line ups of happy voters we saw on TV were there  because in El Salvador it is against  the law not to vote and everybody  is stamped with indelible ink. They  were there because an identifica-  Sexual abuse of  children traumatic  by Sandy Emerson  The reality of sexual abuse was  flung wide open to a small group  gathered in Sechelts' courthouse  last Monday night by Linda Halli-  day. The self-styled sexual abuse  consultant was invited to lecture by  the Sunshine Coast Teachers'  Association and the Wilson Creek  Family Centre.  A victim of sexual abuse from  three years of age, her father subjected her and three sisters to intercourse and other sexual expressions  until she was IS years old. She  escaped him by marrying and moving away.  Because of her fathers' long  period of seduction, Mrs. Halliday  suffered emotionally for an even  longer period, and now she is convinced the only way to stop sexual  abuse of children is to treat it like  rape.  Ever since the public became  educated about rape, and courses  like Lady Beware have been given  by.the RCMP, women have been  learning assertivness, karate;- judo  and '-street'' combat to project  -themselves^' ' 'xx.-f.--.-^^.  The result is, rape reports have  dropped drastically. People have  been learning how to take care of  themselves.  It's time to teach children that  their body belongs to them, said  Mrs. Halliday, and they must learn  they have a right to stop people  from "touching their private  zones". This is defined as what  their bathing suit covers.  Child sexual abuse can be traced  as the root trauma in almost all  psychopathic killers, such as Clifford Olsen. After a poll of  prisoners in , Ontario, studies  revealed between 60 - 80 per cent of  all prisoners, male and female, had  been childhood victims of sexual  abuse. The statistics for mental patients, drug addicts and alcoholics  show percentages even higher.  What exactly is sexual abuse?  "We define sexual abuse as any  trust relationship between a child  and adult that is broken by intercourse, molesting, fondling or exposure (to adult sex organs)," informed Mrs. Halliday.  The highest percentage of trust  relationships broken are by, (in  order) family friends, natural  fathers, stepfathers, strangers,  uncles, brothers, grandfathers and  babysitters.

After compiling a number of  genograms of the victims' family  history, a startling discovery  revealed that abusers and victims  traced back many generations.

The RCMP and schools are using educational films, books and  packaged teaching aids, accompanied by a set of four dolls, to aid  children to reveal their situations.  Charges are laid against the adult  pervert, with a further consequence  of removing the offending adult  from the home.  In her booklet "The Silent  Scream", Mrs. Halliday writes,  "The mother is neglected in most  cases. She is the main key in the  case. If she is supportive of her  daughter, she needs someone to  talk to about her fears and feelings,  or she will hold them in and eventually turn on her daughter. If she  does stay with her husband, she  becomes a victim of society  because people cannot understand  her turning her back on her  daughter. She is in a no-win situation whichever way she turns.  "If the victim does get to court,  she will often back down because  she cannot take the pressure of being responsible for breaking up the ~  family or putting the offender,  often whom she does love, in jail.  The fact of the case being held in  open court also not only exposes  the offender but also makes the  family a further victim to the community".  A self-help group formed in  Campbell River, called SAVA,  (Sexual Abuse Victims  Anonymous) is concerned with  prevention of future, present or  past sexual abuse. Members are all  victims of sexual abuse who meet  to share experiences, to have a  voice in future methods to be  adopted in the treatment of victims, and to give each other support.  They attempt to give other victims strength and courage to handle the sexual abuse in their lives,  and learn from each other how to  cope with life now. They provide  methods of working out sexual  abuse, problems in one's life, and  have information available to those  who need it.  Mrs. Halliday states, "I compare sexual abuse to a messy closet.  You have to empty that closet onto  the floor, sort through it, throw  out what you don't need and store  everything you do need back in  neat order."

New arrivals to Canada, John  and Edna Revington emigrated to  Sechelt after careful planning.  They decided to leave England five  years ago after they visited friends  in Sechelt, and saw what was here.  They purchased Kitchen Carnival last October, planning to  open the doughnut shop. "It was  already planned out before we  came here," admitted Mr. Revington. "There was no doughnut  house on the Coast. I knew this  place would become vacant so the  idea was to coincide the two  businesses."  "Sunday, May 20, was the first  t_i  tourist directors appointed  The board of directors were appointed to the Sunshine Coast  Tourism Association last week; an  association formed by the  & amalgamation of the Sunshine  $ .

Appointed from the Expoasis  committee are: Richard Proctor,  Sechelt; An McGinnis, Gibsons;  Vince Bracewell, Sechelt and Tarry  Giannakos, Gibsons.  I  %  I  The members appointed from  the Motel and Resort Owners  Association are: Ed Traff, Big  Maple Motel, Sechelt; Brendon  O'Keefe, Driftwood Inn, Sechelt;  Peter Benjafield, Fisherman's  Resort, Pender Harbour and Drew  Watson, Jolly Roger Inn, Secret  Cove.  The objective of the Sunshine  Coast Tourism Association is to  determine the most productive  association between the two groups  to maximize the economic and  employment opportunities deriving  from Expo '86.  The association also intends to  become the foundation for a permanent, incorporated entity on the  Sunshine Coast to promote  tourism beyond 1986.  day open, and we sold 1,400  doughnuts," said Mr. Revington.  We have some very English  features, such as the bone china  cups and tea pots brought in from  England for people to sip one of  the 21 different types of coffee or  47 types of tea."  All doughnuts and croissants are  baked fresh every day, from the  best ingredients available. The  doughnut maker is perched in the  front window.  When asked how the family has  found Sunshine Coast living, Mr.  Revington said, "The people here  don't know what they've got. One  only needs to spend 30 years in  England to realize it."  "My kids, Kevin, 12, and Lee,  11, have learned more since they've  been at Sechelt Elementary, than  they've learned in all their previous  schooling. People say British  education is better���it's a lot of  rubbish. The teachers here show  more interest in them as individuals  than they ever did in England."  The family felt very welcomed  when they received so many cards  and pots of flowers and plants to  mark the opening of the doughnut  shop.  1 SUNSHINE COAST ��  PEST CONTROL & HEALTH SERVICES LTD.

The winner  from two weeks ago, in heavy competition, was Mrs. Sheila  Danroth who correctly located her own front gate on King Road in  regional area E.  ���    ������-���       -        ���%.  The house numbering systerj  designed for the Sunshine Coast b|  engineer Doug Roy has been ap|  proved in principle by the Sunshine  Coast Regional Board, subject to ��  possible modification to suit the  needs of the  Pender  Harbour-  Egmont area.  Roy has been asked to attend a  June 7 meeting of the Area A Advisory Planning Commission  (APQ to further explain his  system, which begins at the  southernmost point of the district,  Gower Point, and proceeds in two  cardinal directions, north and  west.  The design submitted is a four-  digit system, but with continuous  numbering along the highway there  would be five numbers by the time  the road reached Pender Harbour.  Roy says it would be a simple matter to modify the system to retain,  four digits in the Pender Harbour-  Egmont communities, in keeping  with the other areas along the  Coast.  Roy's assignment also includes  allocating blocks of numbers to  'frontage areas within the  municipalities of Gibsons and  Sechelt, arid to that end he has submitted numbered maps to both  councils and is awaiting their approval. It will then be the job of  municipal administrators to assign  specific numbers to individual  buildings within the frontage areas.  Within the regional district,  Roy's mandate was to prepare a.  map folio and manual to provide  instructions and examples of how  to implement his system, of which  the SCRD Planning Committee  has recommended acceptance. It is  expected that summer students will  do the numbering analysis and  assignment of numbers in the  regional district, under Roy's  supervision.  Street numbers currently used in  Gibsons and Sechelt will be replaced by the new system.  "Both numbering systems are  perfectly adequate as far as the  town and village as separate entities  are concerned," said Roy, who  designed the Gibsons system in  1961 and the Sechelt system in  1969. "But the two established-  systems could not be made apM  plicable to the region as a whole." *  It is not known when the assign-;  ment of numbers to individual  buildings will be completed.'       ;-  Steam  Cleaning  Carpets & Upholstery  Call us for  ��� Wallpaper  ��� Window coverings  ��� Floor coverings  Ken Devries & Son  Floorcovering hid.  886-7112  Unions  initiate  pulp talks  Negotiations initiated by the  unions' caucus have resumed  through a mediator in the pulp industry dispute, and Canadian  Paperworkers' Union, Local 1119,  president Steve Holland told the  Coast News that union and  management are down to working  Out the "final few differences".  *' Mediator Clyde Gilmour was  guoted by Holland as saying that,  while neither side has moved yet,  he is not totally disheartened. The  bottom line for the unions is the  issues of pensions and local items  ��t the Harmack mill.  M The unions are asking for $20  per month pension for each year of  service for both new retirees and  for those already on pension. This  would give them parity with the  Settlement given the IWA, and  Would cost the companies another  five cents per hour���less than it  ciosts for IWA workers, according  to Holland, because the mills work  24 hours a day, almost all year.  The current pension rate is $14  per year of service, and the rate has  already been negotiated up to  $18.75.  ..:At Harmack, industry wants to  drop non-money items already  negotiated at local bull sessions.  The union is adamant there will be  no such give backs.  Other issues still under consideration are seniority, cancellation of life insurance at two mills,  and the cancellation of benefits  during the recent lock-out.  '- "Let's get some stability and the  benefits we've already negotiated  to date," said Holland. The unions  nave been without a contract since  July 1, 1983.  y The joint caucus of the CPU and  Jhe Pulp and Paper Woodworkers  pf Canada (PPWQ has now taken  the position that, if there is still no  agreement by June 18, they will  defy Bill 18 which ordered them  back to work and forbids any job  action, and will undertake a three-  day .work stoppage, June 18, 19  and 20. If necessary, they will  recommend another stoppage in  July.  �� There will be an industry-wide  "vote on Tuesday, June 5 for union  Jnembers to vote on their caucus'  decision.
