 A    mother    from    MADD  {Mothers Against Drunk Drivers)  spoke to students of Pender Har-  Cbour secondary school and later  : .addressed a general  meeting  at  "Madeira Park Community Hall in  Mcompany with RCMP Constable  Terry Olfert on Friday, June 8.  vHVIrs. Sally Gribble told the two  assemblies   that   she   became   a  ��� member of MADD shortly after  ;-'her 21-year old son Fred was killed  by a drunken motorist.  ��   Mrs. Gribble said the 36-yeaf old  idriver of the car that struck and  killed   Fred   Gribble   had   been  ��� -previously convicted of leaving the  : -scene of an accident and a few  ���years later of refusing a  - ^breathalyzer test. After the acci-  Mdent which killed Fred Gribble, the  driver received 30 days correction  . and a nine-month licence suspen-  I sion.  : ��� Mrs. Gribble's point was that  '.such a sentence was totally inade-  > quate given the driver's previous  ^record and that.an innocent person  had been killed.  . -   "It is my view," said Mrs. Grib-  ��� ble, "that such a sentence has  : neither a deterrent value for other  ���drinking drivers nor does it have a  -; rehabilitative value for the driver  involved."  ������."i    have   personally   had.,  -enough,'" went on Mrs. Gribble,.''  '.'of the bleeding heart attitude~'for  M the .drunken driver who is 'sorry'.  Sorry is no longer good enough.  ���These drivers'will go out and drive  .under; the influence again. We  must.;stand up; for the victims and  stop being terrorized by the drink-  ,  ing driver/?   m  ; ��� m In -addition   to   the   various  loopholes in the" laws dealing with  drunken drivers and the seemingly  soft--sentencing  they  have .been  receiving; there, are, serious problems; with Underage drinking.. In  fact, this is where most adult drinking problems begin. . - M  ��� Constable Terry Olfert pointed  out;that.iriVthe Pender Harbour  area there has. been s problem-for  police in getting ;a search warrant if  M they siis0ect illegal underage drink-  ;Mirig: toMfteMin   progress.; Now,  Mltovv^jrV'Jthere is a-justice of the  rkjawijving inthe area and a war-  Mrahtmay be signed, in minutes. ;  .Mrs. Grjbbie: pointed out that  ���while the police.may help by apprehending juvenile drinkers there  is not a single juvenile treatment  centre for drug and, alcohol abuse  in the province; Neighbouring provinces   or Alberta'.and   Saskatchewan    and M the   state   of  Washington all have such centres.  "The-drinking driver killers of  the'futureare. to be found among  > .those; .apprehended and unguided  ,  teenagers:yet our province does  nothing," said Mrs. Gribble.  MADD is currently putting great  effort into questioning the government and health Services about  their rehabilitation provisions.  When asked if she had anything  specific she'd like to say to the.  newspaper public, Mrs. Gribble  said gravely:  "You must really try to imagine  that it could happen either to you  or to a loved one. Either you or a  loved one could be the victim of a  drunk driver or you might hit someone yourself while driving after  drinking. If you love and care, now  is the time to get involved. Enough-  is enough."       , ;  MADD is a rapidly growing-  organization with 20 chapters and  5,000 members in B.C. alone and}  there are growing chapters , aH  across Canada. The goals of  . MADD are to reduce the numbers  of deaths and injuries caused by  drunk drivers and to offer support  and services to the victims of drunk  .drivers.

"general" government, BCC. Assessment Authority and public health  showed increased expenditure.  Those;, areas showing marked increases are protective services,  recreation arid cultural services and  fiscal services.  Clerk-treasurer Lorraine Goddard and finance chairman Bill  Edney told the Coast News the increase in expenditures for protective services ($76,490 over 1983)  was due mainly to the construction  of the new firehall, which was approved last year by public referendum. The total West Howe Sound  Fire Protection District budget for  1984 is $98,080.  Recreational and cultural expenditures of $401,721 for 1984 are up  prep^ationfp  tiqir of a^'bubbfe* to-^located"ipi  the park. In this budget are also included the expenses*ofthe aquatic  centre ($182,914>, all juries  maintenance, the mu&unv arid  library, and recreation programs'.  Gibsons residents do not,  however, pay the full amount for  fire protection and recreational services. These expenses are shared by  residents of areas E and F, who are  members of the West Howe Sound  Fire Protection District, and the  West Howe Sound Recreation  Commission.  Fiscal services costs have more  than doubled,, due to interest  charges and re-financing  necessitated by errors made by the  previous administration.

Cemetery to close  Gibsons council has moved to  take whatever steps are necessary  to officially close Pioneer Park  Cemetery.  The cemetery, located in the  raised dias section of the small  park currently being renovated  across   from   the   head   of  the  government wharf, bears the  graves of 10 of the pioneers of the  area,, including George Gibsons  and his wife Charlotte; George,  Mary Ann, Rosie, William and  John Glassford; Emma and  Kathleen Winegarden, and most  recently buried there, Charles  Winegarden.  Sechelt Village Council heard  that the Sechelt Senior Citizens'  Association wants to build a larger  hall on Trail Avenue, north of the  Arts Centre.  At the May 6 council meeting,  Len Herder, representing the  seniors' executive, requested that a  parcel of land be rezoned for  public assembly use. The lot is only  a stone's throw from other public  assembly zoned land, the Arts Centre. M'\'-  The Senior Citizens' organization had previously approached the  present land owner, Len .Van Eg-  mond, about purchasing a 100 by  240 foot lot and he was agreeable  to selling the parcel for a very  reasonable sum of $60,000.  This money is being raised  amongst the seniors themselves.  Some are prepared to donate  generous portions individually, informed Mr. Herder.  Mir, Van Egmond submitted the  formal request for rezoning on the .  condition that the seniors buy the  land,and Mr. Herder presented it  to cduncil- on his behalf. Mr.  Herder said there was a Senior  Citizens' organization meeting  scheduled the following day to  ratify the land purchase.  The hall, which Mr. Herder called the "seniors play pen", would  house a general assembly hall,  games rooms complete with pool  table, and committee rooms,  possibly spread over 10,000 square  feet, on two floors.  "The property lends itself to a .  building that size with a parking lot  on either side, accommodating  each floor" said Herder. As a side  benefit, he said the vacant daytime  parking space could catch the Arts  Centre overflow of cars, which has  created parking problems in the  area. He reminded everyone how  the present hall has been used for  community disasters and the future  hall would also be offered for this  purpose.  When Mr. Herder did some  preliminary probing about federal  government funding, "the government official didn't bat an eye at  the request for a quarter of a  million dollars".  As a last part of his pitch to  council, Mr. Herder said that an  assembly hall this size, in a prime  retirement setting like Sechelt,  would attract more residents. Their  spending dollars would benefit'  local businesses and further secure;  area employment.  He noted that when seniors are  kept active and alert, they are less  prone to illness or becoming  hospitalized in long-term care  facilities. The federal financial  burden would be greatly reduced.;  Council voted unanimously to  proceed with the first stage and  hold a public rezoning hearing in a  few weeks time. Alderman Ken  Short will research all the details  Herbicide meeting  Thanks to some good organizing energy in our community the  next meeting of the Pender and District Wildlife Society will be a  "Herbicide Informational Meeting".  In attendance will be representatives from B.C. Hydro,  Forestry, Fisheries (Nanaimo), a biologist and Michael Conway-  Brown, an alternate methods authority.  Which herbicides are currently being used jn the area, how and  where they are being applied and why they are being used are  some of the questions which will hopefully be answered.  If you care to understand more fully each side of this vital issue  then be at the Madeira Park Elementary School at 7 p.m. on  Tuesday, June 19. If the crowd overflows they'll move the  meeting accordingly.  Air service  Tyee Airways Ltd. is pleased to announce that, in consequence  of the new air policy as announced by Lloyd Axworthy, there is a  strong possibility that in the near future the demand that exists will  justify Tyee offering the people of the peninsula a wheel service to  Vancouver Airport to enable interlining with other airlines.  However, it is to be considered that the existence of an application by another carrier may jeopardize the viability of Tyee offering  this service. Therefore, it does not appear possible to initiate the  service until that matter is determined.  Tax deadline  The last date for payment of Sechelt taxes is on or before July 3,  1984. After this date, 10 per cent interest will be levied, increasing  the tax bills considerably.  Alderman Ann Pressley reminds people that this date is a month  earlier than previous years and people may get caught paying a  penalty by just not being aware.  ���?v-  i>l! 2.

The long dance of the Liberal leadership campaign comes to  as much of a climax as it can muster this week and if one thing  can be said with surety it would be that the Liberal Party, and by  extension the Canadian people, have learned little politically in  the last half century.'  Perhaps it isn't quite accurate to say that the Liberal Party  has learned nothing. They retain their shrewd manipulative  ability to cling to power and if clinging to power is to be the sole  yardstick for measuring political expertise then it is true that the  Liberals are political experts.  As this point it looks as though it will be John Turner who  becomes leader next weekend and thereby the next prime  minister of Canada. It has been suggested that in fact the backing of the party establishment has virtaully guaranteed Turner  his place in Canadian history.  His nearest rival, the rumpled and charming Jean Chretien,  has served his party well in a variety of portfolios and would ap-  . pear to have the stronger grip on the affections of the Canadian  people. But the polls say Turner is more likely to beat Brian  Mulroney and the polls are God to today's policiticans.  Apparently, politicians don't even know what they think until  they have consulted what Dr. Gallup has to say. The leadership  faculty is apparently located somewhere near the tail of the body  politic and as the tail wags so does the head point.  What is missing in John Turner, what was missing in Pierre  Trudeau, in Lester Pearson, in Louis St. Laurent, and in  Mackenzie King is a refreshing and challenging vision of this  country.  Fifty years of Liberal leadship has known only how to cling to  power. No clear idea of what should be done with that power  has surfaced in half a century and it is in this sense that the  Liberals have learned nothing.  And they are again staging a comeback, apparently, in the  minds of the Canadain people. Fifty years of squandering our  heritage whilst our politicians in back rooms scheme to ensure  that no one else will get close to the levers of power now promises nothing but more of the same.  Given the record of dashed hopes and squandered resources  and opportunities that is Canada's since Mackenzie King first  maneuvered into the top political job, the prospect of a revived  and unrepentant Liberal leadership is infinitely depressing.  .The Sunshine  CO-PUBLISHERS  John Burnside M.M.

Loggers who arrived here from either European or eastern North American forests found quite different  conditions. Trees were too large for traditional saws, both in the woods and at the mills. Stream beds  were usually too steep and rocky to allow log runs. Winds that sprang up without warning created waves  that would destroy eastern style bag-booms. Each new condition called for its own response. Fallers  -climbed above swelled butts on steel-tipped springboards, holes for which were chopped into the tree-  trunks with specially designed double-bitted axes. Enormously long falling and bucking saws and huge  mill head-saws were devised. Iron and boiler works created monstrous spools, powered by steam engines,  to be mounted on gigantic sleds, their runners fashioned from whole logs. High-riggers learned to top  I giant Douglas firs to act as spar-trees, to which, by means of huge bull-blocks, donkeys pulled and piled  logs from all around it. FiumeS, skidroads, and railways were built to carry logs and shingle-bolts for  miles to salt water. Swifters were pulled across boom logs to hold them in place.

Peterson  " roads  tree,  Musings  John Burnside  Last month my son Stuart went  to work as a placer gold miner on  Bonanza Creek not far from where  the Klondike Gold Rush started.  This month my longtime friends  Art and Margie Fry celebrated 50  years of marriage. These two circumstances were all the justification I needed to fly north to the  Klondike where, at this time of  year, even on a cloudy day they get  more sunshine in one day than we  web-footed denizens of the rainforest enjoyed in the whole month  of May.  Not only the sunshine made it a  delightful change, for the Klondike  seems in the midst of a mini-boom.  The price of gold is more than 10  times higher than it was in the  1960's when I taught there and the  old town of Dawson City hksrmore  new buildings and more people  hammering and painting and  generally sprucing up than I have  ever seen there.   :  All in all there is an air of cheerful bustle and optimism abroad in  the old goldfields which makes a  resident of our benighted province  truly envious.  Someone said to me early in my ���  visit that he guessed I saw a lot of  changes and I answered that was  true but that it was equally true '  that there was much that never  changed. For me the true glory of  the Klondike lay in the hills around  Dawson and at no time is this more  true than in early June with  everything in full triumphant life,  the poplars and the silver birches  again in full leaf and whispering in  the still, sweet air and the great  river carving its way north and west  through timeless hills.  I was sitting in the Snakepit one  morning, better known as the  Westminster Hotel when Henry  Henry pointed to my camera. His  parents, Joe and Martha Henry,  are aged now but still live most of  the year in the bountiful wilderness  outside of Dawson, far from the  gold and the people who pursue it.  Henry told me of some things he  had seen in the bush for which a  camera would have been a godsend.  ��� He talked of seeing a wolverine  catch and kill a caribou after a long  chase which left both animals exhausted;   he   told  of  seeing  a  Klondike visit  wolverine with its young - a most  rare sighting; he was close by when  two grizzlies met and fought; he  watched a moose give birth on the  banks of the McQuesten River;  another moose he watched herding  its young neck-deep in water.for  the first time in its life.  Another man at the table told of  introducing someone to Henry  who wanted to meet an Indian and  the confusion which arose from the  double-barrelled name.  "One time," said Henry, "the  police stopped me and asked my  name. I said it was Henry.  "'What's your surname?'  demanded the policeman.  "'Henry', I said.  '"What's your first name?'  "'Henry'.  "So he took me and put me in  jail. Next, morning the judge asked  me what I was in court for. I told  him it was because of my name. He  got kind of mad at me and told me  to explain. So I told him and he  told me to get out of there.  "But that constable, he didn't  like me after that," and Henry  Henry chuckled at the memory.  Stuart, my son, was bom in"  Dawson City and as an out-  doorsman is thrilled at the  grandeur and the scope of the untamed country.  Of the people he has met there  he could only shake his head.  "What the people of Boulder,  Colorado, try to be these people  are," he said, and I knew what he  meant.  For honest to God off the wall  eccentricity .there can surely be few  places on the face of the earth that  match Dawson City for per capita  colourful character?, That, too,  hasn't changed since I was last  there. It was good to visit.  Neither Out Far  Nor In Deep  The people along the sand  All turn and look one way.  They turn their back on the land.

He became a close friend of the1  captain,   learned   Japanese   and  while in port was entertained byJ  Japanese friends. " "���'  Many years later, after having-'  been a prisoner for several years iris  a Japanese POW camp in In-';  donesia, Van der Post met Captairt--  Mori again. He describes their-  memorable reunion: ; "-M  "I found him (Mori) for the mo-:  ment fallen on hard times materially. He now had to make his living >  oh land, where, after the long years"  at sea he was like the albatross oh  the deck described in Baudelaire's:  great poem.

Robert Frost Coast News, June 11,1984  iiGatlonalcftaiBgges seen ctetrlataemta:  r  Editor's Note: A copy of the  following letter was received for  publication.  Mr; Jack Heinrich , .  Mikister of Education  Parliament. Buildings  Victoria, B.C.  D*e_r Mr. Heinrich:  ^h&nk you for your ������ letter of  Nf&rch 19/84 which only serves  hdwever to reinforce my fears that  my'daughters' education and that  of most other B.C. children will  suffer with the introduction of pro-.  vhfdal examinations.  c I^believe you are sincere in your  attempts to improve our educa  tional system. The difficulty arises  in the definition of the term  "quality" as it applies to education  and learning.  Standardized curricula and standardized testing satisfy primarily  the bureaucratic and managerial  aspect of an educational system:  control over matter taught, control  over standards, control over  methodology etc. These factors  may be important from an administrative viewpoint but have little to do with real learning.  My years of experience as a  teacher in a highly controlled  educational system - Quebec in the  60's - gave me first hand evidence  of the type and extent of abuses  arising from such a system. Exams  and marks took on ah importance  which was harmful to the spirit and  mentality bf students and teachers.  Students "learned" for exams,  teachers "taught" for exams,  students with better memories for  facts and factual concepts were  said to be smarter etc.  Since the learning atmosphere  was highly structured it left very little scope for student or teacher initiative and produced individuals  who could not think for themselves  and  who were unaware of the  Reagan's Star Wars folly  Editor,  tihi our current political weather,  backed with nuclear thunderheads,  President Reagan has introduced  u%ftp. a new dimension of terror:  Project High Frontier or "Star  Wars". He has said, "I call upon  thet'scientific community who gave  uaijiuclear weapons to turn their  great talents to the cause of  mankind and world peace."  ���Nine distinguished scientists, all  impecaably qualified in the nuclear  field, and especially Carl Sagan, a  veteran space traveller, have  studied the proposal with all its in- .  tricate ramifications and have now  published their opinion. "Star  Wars?' will not be so easy as it  sounds.  fJIihe project, they explain, would  employ laser beams because they  travel at the speed of light. These  prodigies occur in several forms,  each: .possessing its own peculiar  strength and- special weakness.  Achieving instant aim at swiftly  moving targets would be only one  ofVthemany indigestible problems.  -Each computerized "battle station!.', .up there would require a  syfctem of mirrors made of flawless  optical glass to direct the rays of  the isun upon the lasers. Thousands :<  of/such battle stations would be  needed and the cost merely of lof-<  ting the computer hardware into  position would be astronomical.  Computer business has a branch  called software (not to be confused  with cushions and bed quilts); this  is the skilled designing and writing  of programmes for the computers  which would control the astral  equipment from down here on  earth: a hideously costly essential  Mr. Reagan's advisers have absent-  mindedly overlooked.  The organization of this kind of  missile defense would be infinitely  complex; complex designs breed  complex problems. An insoluble  dilemma would be how, within the  physical conditions of the nuclear  arms race, to conduct the normal  procedures of testing to eliminate  the "bugs".  Also to be pondered are the disquieting affects this plan will have  on Nato partners who cannot be  protected by it.  A consensus among the scientists  is that the project is "a defense of  stupifying complexity and  precarious reliability based on untried technologies and provocative  doctrines."... "It is difficult tp imagine a more hazardous confrontation. Deterrence should be weakened and crisis instability increased.  The entire arms control process  would be swept away.

Human folly of today was often  larger   issues   and   the   inter-  relatedness of subject matter.  This is what I fear will happen to  my daughters and to the other  children in our public schools. As  controls become more unified and  testing widespread, schooling will  become rigidified and only a  parody of learning will occur.  Your belief that what is happening to our educational system "will  prepare our students for the  demands of the future" seems  especially inapplicable in the face  of the reality of the 20th century.  The problems we are presently facing as a society - and which we will  .continue to facejn the future, are  complex and of a naturewhich require approaches which are  creative and imaginative.  : Our educational systems should  stress these characteristics and increase the opportunities for their  practice.

Ritchie's letter states, "I wish to  advise council that once the  necessary loan authorization bylaw is approved as well as working  drawings, I will be pleased to sign  the loan agreement."  An application for $200,000 in  funding was given approval in'  principle in October, 1982, by then  minister Jack Heinrich, but the;  project lost momentum and .proceeded no further until the spring  of 1984, when it was revived by  Vene Parnell, vice-president of the  Gibsons and District*Chamber of  Commerce.   . ���  In consultation with Parnell arid  designer 'Neville Conway," town  planner Rob Buchan drew up a  "bare bones" plan to improve and  renovate the historic downtown  harbour area of Gibsons, at an  estimated cost Of $ 130,000.  Having received approval of  $200,000, however, Gibsons council has decided it should accept the  full amount, as this would allow a  more complete project to be carried out, and repayment terms are  very favourable. No payments at  all are made for the first two years,  then interest rates accrue beginning  at under two per cent, and gradually increase. The town can determine the length of amortization of  the loan, and over 20 years the rate  would average six per cent.  At last week's committee  meeting, councillors felt their decision to proceed with the downtown  ���revitalization project should be  ratified by. Gibsons residents in a  public referendum, as a renewed  harbour area\w>"uld beexpected to.  attract more tourists and bring increased business to the whole  town, so the whole town would  share iii playing for it.  Council rnembers are scheduled  to meet this Wednesday, June 13,  with Mr. ShutesM coordinator of  the highly successful.Chemainus  Downtown Revitalization Program, arid Mr. Thomas ofMhe provincial government, who helped  the Chemainus project along, to  discuss the best ways to proceed  with and finance such a project.  Decisions regarding the best repayment plan for Gibsons will be  made after that meeting.  Council ��� considers the current  renovation of Pioneer Park to be  part of the revitalization project,  but because free labour was  available through Katimavik  members, decided to proceed with  this part of the project in advance  under a $23,000 allocation in its  current budget.  Bubble prepared  for Brother's Park  I   Work is proceeding in Brother's  I Park in preparing the site where the  'town of Gibsons' newly purchased  ^'bubble" will be erected.  ���M^The 6,300 square foot air sup--  'port structure (it is held up by air  ��from a fan) will be'used for indoor  , recreational activities like fitness  ���classes,   volleyball,   badminton,  >craft fairs, and activities for teens  Hike dances and roller skating.  e*r, Preparation of the site includes  ���Couring a concrete slab for its floor  and installing plumbing, wiring,  septic field and washrooms, which  are expected to be ready by July 1.  ' Gibsons- council members have  approved a slight relocation of the  bubble's site to a more  southwesterly location than  originally planned, closer to Park  Road. If land use regulations  allow, the town would like to  develop a rough tenting area  behind the bubble, providing only  basic necessities like water and  outhouses.  Hall  by Gladys Coates  * The final meeting before sum-  frier recess was opened with Jim  Munro in the chair.  " Jim introduced Gloria Lifton  from the Homemakers Service,  who, with slides demonstrated ho\v  the service can be used by seniors,  and explained how to obtain this  Service. The homemakers are of inestimable value in providing service  to many oldsters who would otherwise be institutionalized, and the  service provides part-time work for  some 55 women in the community.

FREIL FALLS  Have you even seen Freil Lake  Falls. They are beautiful. It can be  seen fifoni' the ferry travelling between Earl's. Cove and Saltry Bay.  In the near future that may be the  only view we will have of it if Colin  Beach and Aquasources Ltd. has  their way.  I know, I know, they say the  water is just going into the ocean  and they just want to put a little  hose into the falls and catch a little  bit of the water and put in in a little  tanker and sell it to Mexico. Give  them an inch and they'll take a  mile.  Within a few years there will be  so many tankers going to and from  Freil Falls they will have to have  their own ocean freeway and we  will be left waiting at the cloverleaf  for the light to turn green.  Well, we can always take a  newspaper along to read while we  are waiting, and read Colin Beach  is vacationing in his very own con-  do in Mexico.

Pain Relievers (Cont.)  e  Acetaminophen (Tylenol�� ) is comparable to ASA for relief in j  headache and muscle pain and fever. Advantages over ASA are less j  stomach irritation and no effect on clotting. It is safe to use during '  pregnancy in therapeutic doses. In addition people who are allergic to  ASA may use acetaminophen. Asthmatics are more prone to ASA 5  allergies and they should also take acetaminophen instead of ASA.   *  However acetaminophen has serious drawbacks. Compared with =  ASA it is toxic in very low doses. Its toxic effects are minimal therefore  the necessity for medical aid may not be apparent.  ASA is also very toxic, however, high quantities are required for a  toxic reaction and signs of an overdose are very apparent in most  cases (ringing in the ears, sweating, nausea, vomiting, hallucinations).  If any overdose is suspected consult your doctor or pharmacist immediately.  ���j/^x.

Rob Liddicoat has agreed to  take over this exciting and demanding position. Rob has been  assured that the programmes that  were in place last year will be  handled by the same people who  did such a superlative job last year.  Sure hope that this is so!  Rob will be calling a meeting in  the near future. I will be there to  give support to the new coordinator and hope to meet most  of those who are interested in supporting another exciting festival for  the town of Gibsons.  Although I will not be coordinating Sea Cavalcade for  health reasons, I will retain the  position of president and with the  other directors Diane Strom  -secretary, Ken Crosby - treasurer,  and George Giannakos, will do  what directors should do and that  is raise money.  The money that is raised for Sea  Cavalcade will be disbursed to the  various committees for their expenses. Each committee keeps a  running account of all of its expenses and submits a report. These  reports are then compiled by the  directors and, as required by law,  submitted to the provincial government in Victoria.  I wish to thank all of my friends  who gave so much of their time  effort and did such a good job, and  also wish to thank all of my newfound friends, with whom I might  never have become acquainted  were it not for Sea Cavalcade., who  also did such a great job.  To all the service clubs, such as  the GVFD, Kinsmen and Kinettes,  Fish and Wildlife, Lions, local  Chambers of Commerce, Gibsons  Legion, who year after year are the  backbone of the festival, I must  pay special tribute.  There are certain individuals  who year after year put their own  USED  TYPEWRITERS  The School District has for sale a number of  typewriters, mostly manual, but there are  borne electrics.

I am completing four years on council and this has been the  most challenging of all. Challenging in a sense, that in difficult economic times we are faced with numerous and urgent  needs. This town is desperately in need of improved  municipal roads, increased water supply, increased sewage  disposal facilities, and a general face-lifting.  The catching up we are faced with now is the result of too  many years, as a village, with a fixed tax base of 29 mills.  School Road upgrading with curbs and sidewalks at an  estimated cost exceeding $500,000 has been on the five  year capital budget for more than five years. Anyone can see  and name the areas, where if there were money to do it, improvements could be made.  Our municipal staff and management team are working  well with council and doing a good Job of holding the line  cost wise; always considering how to get the job done for  less. \  IftlliSOXSl  IF1SHI .

As individuals we have  differing needs and so not all of us may be satisfied with the  list of priorities established in this year's budget.  A large item in the budget is the Aquatic Centre and Culture  and Recreation. These frequently come under attack  especially by those who don't use these facilities. They are  for the good and health of the youth of our community as  well as the elderly, especially the swimming pool. It must  also be remembered that the aquatic and recreational budget  is offset quite substantially by contributions from areas E and  F as well as user fees.  It is the wish of all at town hall that satisfactory answers be  provided to any and all who have a query. There is a time for  questions from the public at each council meeting. It is better  (but not necessary) if the questions are put in writing  beforehand so that the information is readily available.

We have no idea which one is  which, and by the time we have  even thought about it much, we  have overshot the, first and are  crossing the bridge into Missouri.  To further confuse matters, the  freeway system suddenly becomes  a spaghetti tangle like the one in  L.A., splitting off into a dozen  bewildering arteries. Even if this  should prove to be the right side,  we don't have the ghost of a clue  which exit to take.  In addition to these things, it is  rush hour and we are hemmed in  by wild traffic on every hand. "I  think we'd better just keep going,"  says Yvonne, realistically.  We wind our way above that  warren of buildings and streets and  before-we know it, are shooting  out of the far side of double-  headed Kansas City like a squeezed  orange pip. "12 Street and Vine's  probably in the middle of some  black ghetto anyhow," I comment,  feeling both cowardly relief and  vague regret. "We might have ended up in a hassle."  September 19, 1982. Another  day. Another state. Neither  Yvonne nor I knows much about  Missouri beyond a few cliched  facts. We recall that it is famous  for mules, skeptics, waltzes and being the birthplace of both Mark  Twain and Harry Truman. We  make our customary, early start  and head out into it.  We are leaving the Old West  behind us. This is still farming  country but of a different sort. It is  much lusher and more heavily  wooded.  Soon we are crossing the actual  Wide Missouri of legend and song.  "Oh, Shenandoah, I love your  daughter," we sing bemusedly.  On we scurry, eating up the  miles. The country we are passing  through now is apparently tie northern fringe of the Ozarks but the  farms are neat and well-kept and  there are no hillbillies in evidence.  We pass Ozarkville, a collection of  false-fronted stores that resembles  recreated Front Street in Dodge  Gty but appears to have no basis in  historical fact. I wonder what sort  of folk heroes they celebrate here  -the Hatfieids and the McCoys?  Li'lAbner?  The freeway stretches out ahead  of us like a black snake, dwindling  and vanishing over remote hills.  Yvonne and I observe a  phenomenon we have noticed  before on these long stretches.  Stunned with high ways  where distant perspectives  of blacktop  mirage into mirrors  through which great semis plunge  actually casting reflections  in the illusory looking glass  that always melts into shining air  long before we reach it.  Stunned with highways  strung like tightwires  between horizons  leaping legendary rivers...  We cross another, narrower  branch of the Missouri and scurry  on towards the Mississippi which  forms part of the border between  Missouri and Illinois. Here sits the  historic city of St. Louis, flush  against the state line but not spilling confusingly over it as Kansas  City does. Just before the city, a  large, enticing sign advises that  Mark Twain's hometown of Hannibal lies just 100 miles upriver. I  think nostalgically of Huck Finn  and Tom Sawyer but it is too  lengthy a detour and we are already  behind schedule.  To be continued  Telescope  .

When I attended, I' learned  Why.   'X .-:'���'���'. XXX. ���':.'.  This show kept the audience  either laughing,* clapping or singing  along - or all three at" once. 'Their  musical theme captured the essence  ofMheMirty 30's, warring 40's and  booming 50's.  Most of the aicts were coached  previously by Niki Webber, who  moderated and also took part in  some scenes.  In a very funny one woman act,  Ronnie Dunn entered the stage  with help due to an apparent elder-.  ly fragility, and ended dancing a  leggy chorus girl number. During  her dialogue about the war years,  I she used her cane in a very casual  I way and wedged one leg over the  ] Other   inducing   very! spirited  j laughter.  \ I j Another   outburst   rippled  trough the audience when she said  the woman's land army kept their  backs to the land. Every pair of  elderly eyes twinkled knowingly,  and when Tasked for an explanation from an elderly woman�� she  shushed me and said I didn't need,  to' know about things like that,  with eyes aglow.   .  Three  young'. women, 'Debbie  Middleton, Brigitte Marteddu and.  Karen   Boothroyd  danced,   sang  and tumbled athletically across the  stage before dashing off to a wed-  . dingireception.  The Sixty Niners choir were very  impressive as they all swooned in  harmony to some very peppy old  songs.  ���But it was the Halfmoon Hams  that highlighted the show with orte,'  surprise appearance.after another.v  The most spectacular, was the win- -  dow cleaning number, with each  dressed in coveralls and adorned by  an over-sized snozzle and glasses.  Pipe Major Alec Buchanan, of  the Sechelt Legion Pipe Band, will  have a dream come true on Saturday, June 16, when the Sechelt  Junior Pipe Band plays its first  engagement for the cadets at the  Sechelt elementary school.  For years Alec has dreamed of  forming a junior pipe band. He has  encouraged youngsters to join the  band both as drummers and  pipers. He has given aspyring  pipers incentive tp keep on practising by allowing them to participate  in parades- playing the "goose",  which is the bagpipes without the  drones. From there he has advanced them to the highland bagpipes,  first with one drone, then two and  finally the full set of three.  The Sechelt Legion should be  very proud of Pipe Major Alec  Buchanan arid all the members of  the Sechelt Legion Pipe Band.  Each member has spent a lot of  time teaching and encouraging the  -junior members.  The junior pipe band consists of:  pipers, Danny Bist, Craig  Buchanan, Dehise Foxall and Seru  Molidegei; drummers,' Janine  Gardner, Andrea Bist, Christie  Beecham and Stiofan Clack.  Sechelt makes Arts grant  Sechelt Village Council voted to  grant the Sunshine Coast Arts  Council a $500 donation at last  week's meeting. Arts director  Sheila Page requested a direct cash  donation rather than just paying  their water bill. .  "Our funds are matched by the  B.C; Cultural Fund, contingent on  what we raise locally*' said Page.  She explained that last year's $250  dollar donation from the Sechelt  Village was matched, but the hundred dollar water bill which was  part of the village's generosity was  not.

Mr. Don Lockstead  MLS - Mackenzie  Parliament Buildings  Victoria, B.C.  V8V1X4  Dear Mr. Lockstead:  I acknowledge your telex of May  23, 1984 in which you demand on  behalf of the Sunshine Coast  Regional Board that the Sunshine  Coast Peace Committee be permitted to erect "Nuclear Free Zone"  signs on highway rights-of-way.  It is your suggestion that the  signs already erected in contravention of this ministry's signing  policy, were arbitrarily removed  under the personal direction of the  regional manager. However, I wish  to assure you that the removal of  these signs was directed by myself  as minister. The regional district  has absolutely no authority for  signing rights-of-way and the committee involved was notified in a  proper manner that signs that did  not pertain to the driving task were  illegal and that permits would not  be given for their erection. It would  now appear that the regional  district is prepared to ��� assume  authority that it does not have, and  I would suggest that you advise  them that signs will not be allowed  on highway rights-of-way unless  approved under permit issued by  this ministry.  I thank you for taking the time  to write, however, I trust jhat you  will understand that there is a  policy in place that must be enforced.  Alex V. Fraser, Minister  Ireson to be missed  Editor's Note: The following was  received by this office for publication.  School District No. 46   .  Administration Office  1490 South Fletcher Road  Gibsons, B.C.  Attention Mr. Nicholson  Dear Sir:  On behalf of the parents involved in the band program at Gibsons  elementary school, I would like to  express my regret that Mr. Ireson is  leaving the district to go to a full-  time teaching position in Cran-  brook.  He is leaving because both he  and his wife were promised full-  time teaching positions when they  came here, and that has not  materialized. During the three  years he has been here, his music  program time has decreased from  .9 to .8 to .7 at present.  It really is a shame that someone  with Mr. Ireson's talents could not  be offered something more attractive and more in line with his  abilities than working part-time in  the library. He came to our  parents' group with a plan to include a band program in the other  schools as part of his job. It is unfortunate that something could not  be worked out.  I am very sorry to see Mr. Ireson  leave, and he is to be congratulated  on doing a terrific job while he has  been here. Surely you are aware of"  this, though, as the band put on an  excellent performance for the  school board in May.  Susan Paul  Protest register ed  Editor's note: A copy of the  following letter was received by this  office for publication.  Mr. Ted Smith    _      ;  General Manager  CKNW Broadcasting Station  Dear Mr. Smith:  I have just heard Mr. Al  Davison's tirade against our community and wish to lodge a strong  protest and feel that a retraction  should be forthcoming.  His "editorial" came across just  as "bush" as he claims we are!!  Among his comments he mentioned that "there is nothing hereM<J  M^bring, tourists baick?> He cjairrjfc'  that there is no consistency in the  dining establishments on the  Coast. I would like to assure Mr.  Davison that this is a totally erroneous statement. I'd be most  pleased to supply Mr. Davison with  a list of dining establishments that  meet and MAINTAIN the quality  standards of Vancouver's finest. I  would, also, be pleased to provide  - a list of excellent motel and hotel  accomodations.  Tourists often return as potential  residents and we in business here,  are anxious to build our community base. Our area certainly doesn't  need adverse publicity that is irrational and uncalled for - particularly when it comes from a respected  radio station, such as your own.  After  hearing   Mr.   Davison's  VrolEcalf^^  ; j|mit^;M&>fc-l"^  business from an area which he  claims offers so little.   ,      ���  I would appreciate your attention to this protest.  John B. Peat  Mitten'Realty Ltd.  Sechelt, B.C.  Track record intact  Editor:  The track record of your regular  correspondent, Mr. Suveges, remains intact.  His recollection of phone conversations can be relied upon about  as much as his recollection of  events, and of course I have not  "been spoken to about it" by  anyone. I have, however, received  the valid criticism that I should  have called the RCMP, and I leave  it to Mr. Suveges to ponder on who  would   have been  charged  with  what. ^  Since Clint has chosen to make a  career out of printing my name in  the paper every week, I wonder if  he might perhaps take the trouble  to spell it correctly.  As his namesake in the movies  might say, "Go ahead ---, make  my day".  I.M. Mackinnon  (Years  and places of residence  . available on request)  Pre-school grateful  Editor  The 1983-84 executive, teachers,  parents and children of the Jack  and Jill Pre-school would like to  thank those wonderful residents  and businesses of the Sunshine  Coast who have been very supportive of us in so many ways this  year.  The Pre-school membership  would like to give our thanks to  both our teachers, Lori Thibault  and Sylvia Hewgill for their enthusiasm and great times they have  shown both the children and the  parents during this school year.  As our enrollment is down for  the 1984-85 Pre-school year, we are  concerned that the community  isn't aware of the wonderful opportunity for both children and  parent in a Pre-school situation.

"I Coast News, June 11,1984  is tops  b a b  H and R T-Shirt Junction is a  dream come true for Heather Surmik. This little shop opened June 1  on Cowrie Street right across from  the Big Scoop. The "H" stands for  Heather Sunriik, and the "R" for  Ray Nickerson, the man in her life.  On the best quality Trshirts  around, this business features  custom decals and lettering in eight  styles of type and three sizes. There  are 100 patterns to choose from  and new ones will be added quite  often.  Ms Surmik says that placing  decals over stained shirts /gives  them longer life, particularly for  children.  After five days in business, Ms  Surmik has visions of using local  artistic talent to design special  Sechelt decals on custom designed  shirts.  She's been percolating the idea  of opening a shirt shop for quite  awhile, and within a matter of two  weeks from securing her premises,  she set up with amazing speed.  "I can't believe how fast  everything fell together", she said.  On a personal note, Ms Surmik initially came to the Sunshine Coast  two-and-a-half years ago on a camping trip. She said from those first  moments, she felt as though she  had come home and has since settled down here.  ..and bottoms  [Heather Surmik shows the Sechelt T-shirts she is:  Mime tourist special at her spanking new shop.  featuring as a long  ���Sandy Kmtrson phulo  25*1 A(i 1$ ___ KENXEL$  I"Science Diet" I  Pet Foods  'Coast Vet  Service"  Now available for all breeds  QUALIFIED DOG GROOMER  Also  |Dog &.

Industrial  and  Body Shop Supplies  Sechelt  88S-SI8I  The Bottom Half is a little boutique for pants at "The Dock" on  Cowrie Street in Sechelt. Once  upon a time this store space was a  firelane between two buildings. It  was too narrow for the fire trucks  to pass through and eventually  became a garage.  When Paulette and Duane  Thorsteinson secured the space,  they renovated it completely into a  very nice little shop, using Duane's  skills as a builder, at which he is  self-employed.  Mrs. Thorsteinson raised a family of three, Darin 13, Shelly 15 and  Tammy 17 for the last 19 years,  and she says this is the first time  she has worked outside of her  home in all that time. She finds the  Bottom Half business quite exciting and really enjoys meeting the  people who come in to shop.  The most noticeable feature in  this shop is the very low prices on  all items. "We get pur stock directly from the Pant Factory," advised  the owner, and says "everyday is a  1  sale because our prices are quite  low."  They carry jeans, rugby pants,  baseball shirts and kids combat  clothing. During the summer one  of their daughters may also be  working in the family business.

Oddvin Vedo, Economic Commissioner, was disappointed one  could not be offered in July when  it was most desired by the over 30  people on a waiting list. Instead,  they will be mailed registration  forms in August.  Meanwhile, Mr. Vedo invites all  interested in fish farming who  want information sooner to come  to his office,.because he has films,  books and all sorts of information  to arm people with, or phone him  at 885-2261.

These stories mainly involve  people who were victims of a  beating or an assault, more often  than not getting involved in a  physically violent situation against  their will.  LOCAL ADULT MALE  "I didn't notice these guys. Apparently, they had behaved all  night in the same manner, they had  been consistently looking for a  fight, looking for trouble. They sat  with their chairs out in the way.  They cruised around getting in the  way. They were looking for it.  "I got up to dance with my wife  and knocked this guy's beer by accident. The beer was right at the  edge of the table. I apologized but  that wasn't good enough. I offered  to buy him another beer but that  wasn't good enough either. I offered to buy the whole table a beer,  but no, that wasn't good enough.  "There wasn't anyway to get out  of it, this guy really wanted to fight  and short of running away, which I  wasn't about to do, I had no  choice. I hit him first. You don't  come into a small town and try to  fight the locals. If I'm pushed to  the wall, I'll fight.  "So I hit him first and to my  great surprise, he retaliated. After  that, it was just like an old Wild  West movie. We were all over the  place,  over  the bannister,  over  tables. We were asked to leave. I  would never, never go look for a  fight, but I had no recourse."  LOCAL ADULT MALE  "I was hitchiking on the  highway and some yahoos went by  yelling at me so I gave them the  finger.  "Well, they turned around and  came after me. Two stayed in the  car because they were too drunk to  get out. Three came out, two held  me by the jacket while one of them  beat me up. I was kicked and hit  repeatedly. I got out of my jacket  and ran away. They came after me  so I threw rocks at them. They got  madder.  "Finally, enough traffic stopped, they got nervous and left. I  should have gone to the hospital  but I didn't."  LOCAL ADULT MALE  "I was at a dance and the girl sitting next to me was a friend and  had just broken up with her  boyfriend. Her ex was there and as  the evening went on, he got progressively drunker and morose.  "He was bothering her when she  was dancing with someone else and  she came back to the table. He  followed her and after she sat  down, literally tried to pull her up  right over my neck since I was sitting right in between.  "I make a rule never to interfere  in domestic disputes but she said:  Help me.  "I stood up and said:  Look  June 11,1984 17.  herc.He took a swing at me and  my glasses went flying and I took a  swing at him and knocked him  down.  "Next morning, he came to see  me and apologized. He didn't have  a mark on him, my glasses were  smashed and my hand was broken  and in a cast."  LOCAL ADULT MALE  "This incident really did happen  in a bar one day. This guy was sitting by himself at a table and two  guys came up to him and asked  him to step outside. These guys  were big and there was no doubt as  to their intentions.  "The guy sitting down slowly  looked up to them and then looked  up at the ceiling and said in a quiet  voice: Beam me up Scottie.  "The two big guys burst out  laughing and left him alone."  Many of these fights are over  nothing at all. It's simply fighting  for the sake of fighting; fighting to  prove who is the toughest and the  meanest, pretty childish stuff when  you realize how serious the consequences of injuries Can be.  TV and the movies are constant*-  ly filled with glorified scenes of  fighting, scenes that mislead  viewers into a false notion of what  fighting is all about. The science of  movie-making during fighting sequences involves a minute amount  of physical contact and the dubbing in of sound effects done in a  studio with sound effects experts  smashing wood with blunt in-  ��� struments and hitting large slabs of  meat with skin a lot tougher than  the average human being.

By School Trustee Muryn  Drug education  seen schools task  by Sandy Emerson  School trustee Pat Muryn sees  education as the immunization for  alcohol and drug abuse. She  presented the school board with a  brief asking they adopt a priority  for prevention education.   ���  She feels a course such as "Making Decisions" should be taught  from grades one to 12, arming the  children with solid skills for dealing  with life in between and after  school years.  Her request was well received by  Sechelt and Gibsons councils  recently and by school board  members who are being cautious  about leaping right in without  looking and thinking before  deciding on such a course. They  are investigating the matter, and  will be consulting teachers familiar  with this type of course, to conclude their findings June 12 at the  Egmont schooL board meeting.  The Gibsons elementary grade  six teachers have been experimen:  ting with the "Making Decisions"  course in their classrooms.  Ken Sakaki states: "I have  covered the first four lessons. We  are currently" examining peer  pressure and discussing techniques  for dealing with it constructively. I  expect students will stop to consider their options when faced with  social situations requiring them to  think for themselves.  "Students are more relaxed and  better able to engage in some  meaningful discussion. It took  them a few lessons to feel comfortable.

Sue Fitchell states: "With this  course, students are given opportunity to think about the different  pressures' of social life before they  may actually have to deal with  them. They are given a logical  system that they may use".  "In my evaluation of the program so far, (presently working on  advertising, lesson three), the  students seem very interested in the  power of the media and its influence on our lives, and are  possibly looking with more  tolerance towards others. This  course gives them opportunity to.  discuss their own feelings about  themselves and others, and what  influences people's personality and  character.".     .  The course, "Making  Decisions", teaches some important factors surrounding the sort of  things that influence people. It  begins with discovery of what sort  of person you aire, explores your  individual needs and wants, and  how TV commercials play on  them. It explains how your friends  pressure you and offers skills for  dealing with people. The different  personal styles of decision making  are explained and skills developed.  This course emphasizes involvement of parents, who are  the primary teachers in a child's  life. It lists these examples for  parents to practice with their  children.  Discussing some of the family's  needs and wants together; viewing  TV commercials together, discussing methods used to promote products; sharing with children examples of times when parents have  felt peer pressure, and relating how  they responded to it; engaging  together in a variety of activities involving service to others; discussing  important decisions that may be  forced by the family or individuals  within the family, using the look,  think, decide method; encouraging  children to use a method such as  look, think and decide in making  decisions; discussing as a family,  attitudes towards certain drue uses:.  encouraging and making possible  the development of hobbies and interests.

Its decision will be based in part  on whether its insurance policy  covers liability against virtually any  eventuality which a person might  suffer on the wharf, and for which  the town might be assessed responsibility.  It will also depend on whether  council can negotiate some repairs  to the wharf with the department  of transport, from whom Mthe  wharf is leased.  "It's a pretty rickety old structure," commented Alderman John  Burnside, "and lease time is a good  time to discuss its condition as  thoroughly as possible with  transport officials. If they are anxious for us to keep the lease, and  they seem to be, we should try to  negotiate some repairs and perhaps  some new ramps."  Council members were in agreement on the matter.  "We should have control of the  wharf as long as it's not a financial  burden as regards liability," added  Alderman Bill Edney.  . Suncoast Agencies' Arne Pet-  tersen told the Coast News the  town "is covered through ICBC  for anything it could be liable for  within its jurisdiction. It has as  broad a coverage as is available."  But Pettersen added, ''There is  no such thing as coverage for  everything," referring to legal expenses incurred by the town in  defending itself if it is sued for'  something for which another body  is responsible. Such, was the case  when a float plane struck Ma  submerged section of the federal  government break water V when it  was under construction. The .tov^n .,  was sued, but had no blame in the  matter, as it was completdyMa  federal government responsibility}  A foggy area of concern is the  use of Gibsons Bay as an airport  for float planes. As Gibsons grants  rio permits or licences, Pettersen  says it has no jurisdiction and  therefore no liability, as air and  water are under federal control.  "If the town has any responsibility whatever," said Pettersen,  "it would have to get coverage  through aviation insurance, which  ICBC doesn't touch.  Such insurance might be tied in  with coverage the town has for the  Gibsons-Sechelt airport on Field  Road, Wilson Creek. The B.C.  Aviation Council has recently  evolved with Lloyd's of London an  insurance package for small airports which costs 30 per cent less  than the town paid last year.  MP Shelly  to hold  Freil Falls  hearings  Comox-Powell River MP Ray  Skelly will hold informal hearings  on the proposal to export water  from Freil Falls on the Sechelt  Peninsula.    ���������-<���'  Skelly said he has written to  federal and provincial agencies  asking that approval of the export  project be put off until it can be examined in detail.  "There are a number of potential resources conflicts involved,"  Skelly "said.
