However, with the boats at the  wharf at present neatly organized,  into, three different areas, arid with  the appointment of Dan Crosby as  the new wharfinger, many of the  organizational problems may be  ended.  Dan   attended   Elphinstone  Secondary and in his 14 years.oh  the water, has worked on commercial fishrx>ats arid tugboats, run the  water tan'.-forja year; and worked  as a beachcomber. For the last five  years he has run three of his own  boats in his work as a log salvager.  He is 31 years old and he arid his  wife Janet have two children, Gina  and Jason. -���'/���X:::-X-'-'  ;< Dan's 'responsibilities; as- wharf-v  ingerincludecblie^ohofmborage^  ''fe^��?CTf^  mck>ring areas for the three types  of boats' which use me wharf���  fishboats, commercial boats, Mn-  cluding tugboats and log salvagers,  and pleasure boats,* pumping out  and refloating of any boat which  sinks at the wharf, and reporting  any needed repairs to the federal  agency in charge of the floats;  The difficulties of administering  the wharf area have been increased  by the fact that two federal government departments are involved.

However,  "other signs cannot be erected until  the debate between Gibsons council and Transport Canada over the  terms of the lease, is resolved.

Health cuts hit schools  by Fran Burnside  Sunshine Coast school children  will be feeling the results of. provincial cuts not only in the education  budget, but in the health budget as  ���well.     .  Dr. Jim Lugsdiri, Medical  Health Officer and director of the  Coast-Garibaldi Health Unit, says  the unit's school programmes are  suffering most as a result of  government policy which is effecting budget cuts by not replacing  staff members who leave. ���: '������".  One and a half ; nurses are  presently away on maternity leave,  leaving 1.5 nurses to handle the  many areas for which the unit is  responsible as opposed to the three  which our 15,000 population requires.  As a result, routine visits to  schools have been suspended, as  well as many hearing, vision, and  developmental screening sessions.  Nurses no longer have time to  teach health education classes or to  help teachers with materials, and  there will be no follow-up of school  health referrals except in the cases  of suspected child abuse or neglect,  pregnancy, of referred hearing or  vision problems.        ;^  Minor communicable diseases  like scabies will have to be referred  directly to the family physician  through the parent, and problems  like head lice will have to be dealt  with by pjarent volunteer groups.  School entry immunization  -basic completion and reinforcing  doses will still be done for  students in kindergarten and grade  one, and grade five students will  receive rubella immunization,  r "If things were operating oxo-  perly, we would be doing counselling on nutrition and birth control'  in the schools," said Dr. Lugsdin.  The dental division of the health-  unit, which operates out of Powell  River, has also been badly hit by  restraint, and now employs only  one hygienist, and no dental assistant. She teaches toothbrushing  and flossing to students in  kindergarten and grades one,  three, arid five, and does dental inspections and screenings, making  referrals to parents and dentists.  She may do a seniors' inspection  programme-if there is time;  "The dental programme is an  excellent one, and we need more-  teams;1' said Dr. Lugsdin. "They  should be working with old people  and in places like intermediate care  homes, too."  A speech therapist works in Gibsons in a special arrangement with  the school board, devoting 75 per  cent of her time to school students  and the balance to pre-schoolers  and adults referred by the health  unit. The same arrangement could  be working in Sechelt; where all the  required equipment is in Chatelech  School, but the speech therapist  who left last September has never  been replaced.  "It's particularly sad to have  that equipment going unused when  SCRD tussles  over  we know the best results from  speech therapy occur when .treatment is started early, preferably in  the pre-school years," said  Lugsdin.  The unit physiotherapist is  another position which remains  unfilled since a recent retirement.  "We need one and a half nurses  and a dental assistant right away,"  Dr. Lugsdin told the Coast News.  "And we'd like our physiotherapist back, too. Then we'd  be sitting pretty good.''  The Continuous Home Care and  the Long Term Care programmes  are adequately staffed at present,  and these and some of the other  functions of the health unit will be  outlined next week.  Report to School Board  Children are  different now  by Maryanne West  An assessment of the changes in  school children .was made by Colleen Elson, principal of Cedar  Grove Elementary, speaking to the  school trustees last week.  Referring to the provincial  government's desire to put schools  back to 1976 budget levels, Elson,  who has been teaching for almost  30 years; found herself wishing one  could return to the children of  earlier years, too.  Today's children are quite different from those of a decade ago.  Many of them come from families  coping with economic problems  and are children under stress.  Schools reflect society, its changing morality and values. Today's  children aire aware of their individual rights, like to think that  they can dp what they want, when  they want and ignore what they do  not like.  To these emotional problems are  added lower manual and functional skills. Children who spend  many hours watching television do  riot: have good communication  skills, lack manual dexterity, expect to be entertained and tune out  if" not regularly stimulated.  Children who are not read to have  low levels of memory retention.  "We can't go back to 1976,"  said Elson. "We need curriculum  changes to meet the needs "of today's child and more money for  early childhood education."  Mrs. Pat Story, music teacher at  Cedar Grove, spoke of the brighter  side of the picture-���"lots of good  kids, good parents arid good things  being done at the school."  Music in one form or another  appeals to all children; it helps their,  social and motor skills, memory,  self-discipline and gives many  children a sense of achievement  they may find hard to come by in  other studies.  Mrs. Story's report prompted  trustee Stephen to remark, "Music  should be considered an academic  course in schools."  Cedar Grove's need for a larger  gymnasium was presented to the  school board in a brief by Mrs.  Lorna Snazell, president of the  parent/teacher committee.   .  The inadequate size of the gym  puts further stress on staff,  children and parents. Fire Marshall  regulations do not allow for more  than 167 people to be in the gym at  one time, but the School Act requires the whole school, now 219  students plus staff, to assemble at  least for Victoria and Remem^-  brance Days, so school functions  have to be held in shifts.  Cedar Grove has a reputation  for staging musicals involving as  many of the childi^^possible, j M ;;M  and these productionize to^be^;^..:  staged for several rught|; sd that^att*^^  the parents and others^^lr^t^^"  enjoy them may be ^l(5^id^^.\v>^-?,>  The government,^ hdwejfe^^f^^><  tends that there is room avaiteb^f*?'v  at Gibsons Elementary and someXy\i  students should be transferred, so;^"  will therefore not authorize funds'  for the gym extension.

He challenged Fisheries  Minister, Pierre De Bane, to deny  the reports.  "if these reports cannot be  denied," Skelly said, "it is impossible to imagine how the frustration  of British Columbia fishermen will  manifest itself."  He noted that within the past  two years, West-Coast fishermen  have blocked Johnstone Strait and  have occupied fisheries offices to  show their anger at not being consulted by the federal government.  "Who knows what will happen  if fishermen suddenly discover that  their livelihoods have been plucked  away from them by the power of  the fisheries department to expropriate their boats?"  He said one of the sburces of the  expropriation rumour is the committee appointed by the fisheries  minister to come up with alternatives to the Pearse Report, a  controversial group of proposals to  reduce the size of the West Coast  fleet.  "This committee represents a  broad cross-section of the industry  and was formed specifically to pro  vide an avenue for consultation1*,"  Skelly said. "Now themembers of  that committee realize they are being ignored. Bureaucrats in Ottawa  are making recommendations  -perhaps toexpropriate - and going  directly to the minister."  He asked De Bane to table position papers on the status of the'*  fishing   industry   and   planned;;  changes' now before the Cabinet^  -  "This is one positive measure-  the government can make to help-  salmon net fishermen who have I  suffered economically in the past";  few years without significantly'  decreasing government revenue^"X  Skelly said. �� \  The federal sales tax is refufi-'  dable to fishermen who fish outside territorial waters (34)0  kilometers) but the refund does npt  apply to salmon net fishermen and  others who, by fisheries regulations, are not permitted to fish outside territorial waters. %  "This discrimination does npt  help the generally unhappy situation in the B.C. commercial fishirigv'  industry," Skelly said in a letter toC  Finance Minister Marc Lalonde.  He noted the nine per cent tax  which is applied to the manufacturers' selling price is scheduled to  rise to 10 per cent on October if  "There is sufficient time to prevent that increase and to make the -  tax refundable for all commercial  fishermen   in   the   forthcoming:  federal budget," Skelly said.  The liveliest debate of the first  regional board meeting of 1984  .centred on a motion by Gibsons  representative, John Burnside, that  a motion passed at the last meeting  be rescinded.    ������-:-;.-"  The motion 4 under question  recommended Mhiat the regional  district staff be granted a perceri-  tage wageiricrease that was average  of the percentage increases granted  to die staffs of'-'the Village xif  Sechelt arid the Town of Gibsons.  Burnside argued'that it was a  'dereliction of duty' for the board  not to have control, over its staff  salaries and for the amount of  wage increases to depend on what  happens elsewhere^  He subsequently called the  original motion, made by Area D  director, Brett McGillivray, "a little piece of political trickery; a  swifty that was slipped through by  quick-witted manipulation."  McGillivray had made the motion  after directors had already voted  not to grant a three per cent wage  increase to SCRD staff  Area C director, Jon McRae,  pointed out that the wage structures between Gibsons and Sechelt  are vastly different, with one of the  municipalities in a 'catch-up' situation, so ihat its staff should logically get a larger increase. ' 'The  average of their increases is not addressing our situation", argued  McRae. "It's like dealing with it by  flipping a coin." Burnside noted  that the top Sechelt salary was  about half the top SCRD salary,  and that the same percentage increase applied to each, resulted in  significantly different amounts.  Directors Vaughan, McGillivray, and Shaske were against  rescinding the motion, with  Vaughan accusing other directors  of "getting cold feet and being  afraid to do their job" as soon as it  looked like an increase in wages  would result, and McGillivray prd-  Please turn to page 4  ���r  4 ' K                       *-��"},&  ���  *                                           I                   /V"     '                                      '    -              'V-     'f��  MX\%~i  B^^'r '.   *������ " ��� 1  Iwj x   ~~  "*                   , -> ' X '4"     -JUhW <*  UB ^Hmm\\\\\w\\lfe^33^a\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\  K. >m.^^e\mlm%^em^mm%%lem%mm  i����  ������!:  V*fe'i-v-'-; ���'<���"."'':*��� ������:>'';^C-- XX:t X ���������: X i ':^Xr '*0'':%  Work on the Indian Band regional  tensive ditching required, Dolphin  district sewer connection proceeded we!! iast week.

IV  u  h  , i,  -  ge audi a  corrupt senate  What a farce is the Canadian Senate and with what consummate cynicism; does our lofty leader, Prime Minister Trudeau  play the farcical game.  The surest indication that Trudeau does.indeed intend to  resign this spring came last week when the enigmatic Trudeau  tipped his hand by appointing a handful of friends and failed  Liberal candidates to Canada's second legislative chamber.  There was a lady who nearly beat David Crbmbic in a federal  election back in 1980; there was a journalist from Quebec who  had at some time in the undisclosed past been a federal Liberal  candidate. Oh yes, and there was the head of one of Toronto's  largest advertising agencies already rolling,in government  money. These and a couple of others have been appointed  senators. That's $75,000 a year for life the last time we looked.  A farce it is, and a lorig-playing farce at that. What is amazing  is the lack of any moral outrage on the part of the citizenry. It is .  the norm in Canada to hand over fistfuls of the people's money  to one's friends-and associates;. The second most important  legislative chamber in this country is nothing; more nor less than  a green pasture for old political hacks to frolic in for services  rendered. .  What is needed, surely, in a country'as large and regional as  Canada is a geographic representation along the lines of the  American Senate. Representatives of the provinces by population could meet arid scan government business from the view- ;  point of the regions of the country.  But no, the once-hailed would-be reformer.looks like he's going to ride off into the sunset of his personal retirement as one  who was as active in the corruption that is the Canadian Senate  as any of his predecessors. And the rest of us apparently think it  is quite alright. This country is acquiring all of-the amoral attitudes of a legitimate banana republic, which is probably what  we are.  Sign of the times  The B.C. Department of Highways wrote a letter to the  SCRD last week turning down a request that signs be posted  declaring the Sunshine Coast a 'nuclear free zone*. It's not too  surprising that they did so. The Department of Highways  bureaucracy has never been accused of being either flexible or  progressive.  What is surprising, perhaps, is the reason given. They don't  want to put up nuclear free zone signs because that would imply that those areas that didn't have signs were not nuclear free  zones. Wonderful thinking, that.  Meanwhile a friend, a man with three small children, tells  me of hearing of a study done which indicated that 90 per cent  of all school children expect to die violently in a nuclear war.  This is the state we have reached after having spent billions  and billions of dollars on weapons supposedly in pursuit of  security.  Two perhaps unrelated items, but they point up how puny  still is our response to the nuclear disaster and how widespread  is the fear that it engenders. Is nothing to be done about this  monstrosity? If we can't even agree to put up a couple of  highway "signs expressing, however indirectly^ our, concerns,  what,can we do?

Huge"  stone anchors found at Los Angeles would seem to confirm the texts  of ancient Chinese documents which say that Oriental explorers  rounded the Pacific rim thousands of years ago. Native Indians often  sailed their large canoes^ and some of their points off land were given  names that would remind their sailors of changmg wind conditions.  While journeys across the continent may have contributed to territorial claims by far-away nations, final possession was determined  at sea. Vessels that sailed across and into every ocean of the globe  carried traders here in search of furs. During the nineteenth century,  steam began to replace sail. Yet the Hudson's Bay Company's SS  Beaver rounded Cape Horn wider sail, and a succession of British  Navy craft arrived here fitted with both steam and sail.

Musings  John Burnside  What a mess we have got  ourselves into in the West Coast  fishery. The 'too many boats, too  few fish' syndrome has compounded itself. Skyrocketing fuel prices,  widely scattered openings, and  disappointing returns for their  catch are forcing many of the har  "**"*  familiar with its every twist and  turn. He took me for a walk along  the creek during my visit. Never  have I seen a section of coastal  forest so teeming with life. In a  half hour walk we must have seen a  dozen and a half bald eagles,  thousands of seabirds, and salmon  d|^ndei^^i^f ^ ^s^|iii^th,|bVks of  pretty close to the wall, "the future  looks bleak and most fishermen  ���know it.������'..-���/'        ��� <'"'':'X. :'[T  Nor does there seem to be any  great enthusiasm for the apparently imminent government buy-back  programme. Most of the money, it  is felt, will go from- the federal  government to the banks who hold  the fisherman's mortgages, leaving  them without livelihood and the effect on the fishing fleet will not  solve the problem of dwindling  stocks of fish.  One suggestion that  I heard  recently seemed to me to have  some merit and I pass it along for  whatever it may seem to be worth.  The   suggestion   is   that,   the  fishermen keep their boats arid get  the money the government is going  to spend anyway. In return for the  money, the, fishermen who took  the option would be assigned a  small creek on the coast to work on  as a* personal salmon'enhancement  program. After five years or so, if  the programme proved successful  and the returns should be evident  in more abundant salmon catches  by those still fishing, those who  wanted a change of activity or just  hankered to get back out on the sea  could be rotated with fishermen  who had been fishing and were  ready for a change.  I think the reason I find the idea  intriguing is the visit I paid a couple  of years ago to an old-timer at  Saltery Bay, just on the other side  of me ferry ride from Earl's Cove.  He was a retired logger living on a  mile-long creek that forked  halfway to the sea. ��� V-  In his retirement: he took to ���  walking the creek and became  the creek. It was October and  spawning time. ��� \ . . . ��  VI ;"vVhen I movedohtbthe creek I  was lilcky if I saw a couple of hundred salmon in this creek. One day  I noticed where an otter had been  digging in the gravel so I dug there  too and found a ball of little tiny  hatched salmon clinging together  jUst about at the water line in the  gravel. But the creek bed had  changed and the main current was  far beyond them and they were just  going to die there or feed the otter.  So I messed about with the creek  and redirected the water over the  gravel. 75 per cent of salmon mortality takes place, they reckon, in  fresh water before they ever get out  to sea. The National Film Board  made a film about it. They called it  The Man Who Digs for Fish."  He told me that discovery and  just generally keeping an eye on the  creek had seen the salmon increase  in the creek every year.  "What you are looking at right  now," he said, "is the smallest of  three runs this year. By the time it's  over I expect there will be 20,000  salmon who have spawned and  died here."  He pointed to where, a bear had  been dining on the other side of the  creek. "They keep to that side and  I keep to this. There's no shortage  offish."  No shortage of fish! Just one old  man on a small creek and what an  incredible living bounty he had  helped to restore. Think what a  few thousand capable men, each  on a small salmon creek, might  achieve in-a half dozen years. Do  you think Ottawa would be interested?  In case you haven't heard yet,  there were actually two winners in  Saturday's 6/49 lottery. There was  that guy in Ontario who won 14  million, and there was me; I won a  dollar. I hadn't realized right away  that I was a winner, but my mother  pointed out to me that if I didn't  ���-. play I couldn't lose. So I didn't  -play.and lo and behold, I won a  ^'buckirv;.;.:- o-:,^\-;^:���'���-���"������<���} ���  '\    Seen from this point of view, I  how realize that over the years I've  been a big winner. Just a couple of  weeks ago I won $50 by not betting  on the Sea Hawks. It was the big  game against the Raiders and I had  : a chance to bet with a guy who had  the Raiders by seven. I didn't bet  : and as a result, by Sunday afternoon I was a big 50'dollarwinner.  I have a chance to lay down  another $50 on the Raiders this  Sunday. A high roller I know is  taking   Washington > by   1&   It  sounds like a decent bet, but I  think I'll play it safe and just win  the$50;   ��� /::'"���':><'      '  Over the years, I've won  thousands of dollars by not betting. In fact, my compulsive non-  gambling shpuld: have made me a  rich man by now. My first big win  was in grade four. I: had the  Yankees over, the Dodgers in six  games. The school bully threatened  to beat me up if I didn't bet, but  despite the threat, I refused and  won 50 cents. The Dodgers won.  Not betting is like a disease.  Once I had that first taste of non-  betting fever, I went nuts. 1 didn't  bet on the Grey Cup that year; I  demurred on the Stanley Cup; and  I won a buck when I refused to bet  that it wouldn't show by  Christmas!  By the time I was in high school I  was really hooked. I won on a  series of wagers that first year of  high school. I won when I asked a  girl to dance with me at my first  sock hop - she told me to take a  hike; she only danced with boys in  grade 10 and up. I won again by  not betting how long it would take  to get to my Grandma's house On .  the bus. It was one big win after  another. - ^  I continued my winning" ways-all  through school; just lucky I guess.  But I hayen't always been the bigs  winner. Once in England,! feBoff^  the wagon.^I bet about a hundmd1 "  dollars on a sure thing at an off-""  track betting shop.     " W^[  I had what 1 was assured -fljp*  special insider information on "ah  Irish thoroughbred who was a 33  to one shot. My insider was an old  Irishman I'd met in a pub. He  assured me that he knew horses  because he had been a trainer in  Waterfprd. 'X^'^:'  My Irish friend said it was the  chance of a lifetime. I could make  $3000 and hve like a king. There's  something about old Irishmen that  ypu've got to trust, I went straight  to the book maker and plunked  down my hundred. That afternoon  I went back to the shop to listen to  the race on the radio. Not only did  my pony lose, it came dead last. In  fact I don't think it's crossed the  finish line yet - and that was over  20 years ago.  After that one brief but  disastrous flirtation with high  stakes gambling, I fell back into  my old habit of non-betting and  since then I've done all right. If I  keep on with it, I'll be a rich man  someday.  ��� ��� ��� ���  This is my last column for the  Coast News. I've been writing in  this newspaper since January 1977,  when my friend and colleague  John Burnside gave me the  wonderful opportunity to become  a regular contributor. Now it's  time to try something new.  I would like to thank all the people who have said nice things about  my writing over the years. I'm  especially grateful to John and Ma- '  nuane who not only gave me this  chance, but were encouraging and  supportive throughout my seven  years with the paper.  Thanks, and so long.  s got the stuff?  by Judith Wilson  ..-:; It was Tom Wolfe who described the f��st American astronauts as  KhavihgV(the right stuff.  In~atpresidential election year,  ' Americans are trying to find a candidate with "the right stuff to  carry their dreams into the White  House. In the movie version of  Tom Wolfe's book, the right stuff  and the dream stuff were embodied, but not in the same man.  Chuck Yeager, played by  PuHtzer-wmning playwright, Sam  Shepard, was America's favourite  archetype - the brave loner who  pursues his dream almost unto  death, the western hero who  singlehanded shoots down the  Villain.  :-���. Yeager was the maverick pilot  who pursued "the sky demon" in  his solitary efforts to break the  sound barrier. He had "the right  stuff.  John Glenn,.although supposed  to have the right stuff, only irritated viewers with his rah rah  boosterism and too-good-to-be-  true enthusiasm.  It is the Reverend Jesse Jackson  who may combine both Yeager's  brand of right stuff and the dream  stuff of America.  He has set the early tone of the  campaign with his. inspired rescue  of pilot Robert Goodman from the  hands of the enemy.  A black man wearing the white  Suit and stetson of the hero and-  galloping on the white horse of a  daring mission .into America's  heart is an interesting variation on  the USA's basicfrontier myth.  Jackson managed lo upstage the  man seen as most likely^ at present,  to win the Democratic nomination.  What was billed as a major policy  pronouncement by Walter Mandate received scant coverage as  reporters arid photographers flocked to cover Jackson's coup in gaining Goodman's release.  Sunday's no-holds-barred national TV debate featuring all the  candidates for the Democratic  nomination may make clearer how  much of the right stuff and the  dream stuff Jackson possesses.  Certainly he would seem to face little threat from the wooden  possessor of torn Wolfe's right  stuff.

M  The answer for, us is '.that''we.  must believe what honest scientists,  doctors and environmentalists have  been telling us for. years; that the  by-products of atomic fiss,ibn are  so numerous, diverse and  cumulative, that human and  animal tolerance of them is zero.  One   of   the   most   honoured  witnesses of this" fact is ,pr. John,  Gofman,   nuclear   chemist   and  M.D.' and' original discoverer of  how1 to  isolate  plutonium   frorri  uranium..Another witness is Dr.  Rosalie Bertell, a member.of the '  Order of Grey Nuns, who is a-  scientist and authority on radiation  and  health.  The  list  of .expert  .  witnesses   is   growing   and   the  evidence accruing.  Perhaps the most unusual is a  young woman, Darlene Keju-  Johnson, a public health graduate  of the University of Hawaii and a  native of one of the . Marshall  Islands which lay downwind from  Bikini,, the site of U.S. nuclear  testing. A delegate to the World  Council of Churches las summer,  she chilled her audience with a  documented report of-uncommon  ilness and death'now become common there. She told of 'jellyfish'  babies. "The baby is born...and it  breathes, and moves up and down,  ���but it is not shaped like a human  being. It looks like a bag of jelly."  Dr. Rosalie Bertell says that  World War 3 has already started;  many of its casualties are now dying and we should recognize this.  Don't you think it is time we  turned a strong spotlight on that  skeleton in our cupboard?  Isabel Ralph  Neilson clarifies  Editor.  I would like to correct a news  item on page 16 of January 2, 1984  in your paper concerning remarks I  made at the December 20 Gibsons  council meeting.--  ������  I am opposed to the way the  position of clerk-treasurer was fill-'  ed and so stated a* the council  meeting. One of the concerns I had  because of .the filling of the job by  the then mayor, was whether counT  cil would receive all the facts  relating to the financial blunders of  the past. 'As far as by-law 310 was  concerned, I stated that I was  satisfied that Mrs. Goddard had  given council all the pertinent information.  Other than that, my concerns  surrounding the hiring of Mrs.  Goddard still exist.  Ron Neilson, alderman  Baby welcomed  On behalf of our son Michael,  the 1984 New * Year's baby, we  would like to express our sincere  gratitude to the, doctors of St.  Mary's Hospital for the infant car  seat. We agree wholeheartedly that  infant and child safety in the car is  extremely important and that not;  enough parents are aware of the  dangers to the children. We would  like to see more programs andMar-  ticles concerning car safety for  children so that parents can get the  facts.  We would also like to thank the  hospital auxiliary for the 'Diaper  Cake* and the Play Pen store in  Sechelt for the $25 gift certificate,  the wonderful little monkey and  the baby book.  Dr. John Farrer and the nurses  from the maternity ward were absolutely wonderful to my son and  myself. There is no way I can ever  thank them enough!  The citizens of the Sunshine  Coast have welcomed Michael into  the community with such warmth  and love it has been overwhelming.  He is hot. only special to us but to  so many other people as well. We  only hope he is always surrounded  by such kind and loving people.  With many thanks,-and have a  Happy, new Year!  Dave and Debbie Johnson  Ed. Note: A copy of the following  letter was.received for publication.  Honourable   W.R.   Bennett,  /Premier...... [},.',  Province of British Columbia  Parliament Buildings  Victoria, b:c.  V8B 1X4  Re: Ferry Fares and Proposed Cutbacks.  As an organization, we can not  permit the recent fare increases and  proposed sailing reductions to proceed without comment. It appears  that each time pur highway system  incurs a.deficit, the.burden of  replenishing those funds is levelled  at those people/mostaffected. The  balance/of the Province's highway  system collects no revenue from its  Users other than by various taxes  collected by the Province from all  its; residents ; and visitors. The  fairness of this is hard to see.  It is also veryrdifficult to adjust  to living on /the Sunshine Coast  when we never-know from one year  to the next what ferry service to expect. We hear about traffic lineups  'and   parking   problems  in   Vancouver yet those people who might  wish to make room by moving here.  are put off by the uncertainty in  the ferry system.  None of us are too blind to see  that fiscal restraint is most important at this time. We appreciate  that the Ferry Corporation can not.  continue to run at a deficit that has  to be paid' from other revenues.  However, as we support the total  highway system through taxation,  perhaps our highway system  should also be supported ,by the  total population. These matters are  not going to be resolved easily and.  certainly will not be resolved to  everyone's satisfaction. We. would  however appreciate having input  into the final decision.  Your consideration to have a  general meeting on the Sunshine  Coast to discuss alternatives, at  which we might be present, would  be appreciated.       .   -  P.R.

Two of the radios are How with  members of the Gibsons Wildlife  Club, who assist with search and  rescue operations, add he offered  two to Area A director Ian  Vaughan* to take to Mhe northern  end of the Sechelt Peninsula. " I  McPhee was hopeful that there  might soon be a repeater station  behind Nanaimo on .Vancouver  Island to assist with overcoming  broadcasting difficulties experienced due to the terrain of the Sun-'  shine Coast.  The regional district has also  received a proposal for the compilation of an emergency hand^  book for this area for the price of  $7000. The SCRD moved to spend*  up to $10,000 on the preparation  of a 'Disaster Plan* following last  year's disaster exercise and the  flooding at, Roberts Creek in.  November.  The proposal, submitted by  Roberta L. Bagshaw of North  Vancouver, a masters in geography  candidate at Simon Fraser University, notes that "the goal of an  emergency handbook Is to define  the emergency response in such a  manner that the ambiguities of extreme events^ire decreased and the  potential fof flexibility is maintained." A handbook is "a reflection  of the specific needs of the region,  father than a rigid plan," and  allows those who hold responsibility for emergency response to identify their special tasks in advance of  an actual event and, thereby be  more prepared to respond. ���  ��� Bagshaw's plan is the only one  received by the SCRD so far, and  director Vaughan was hesitant to  accept it without looking at others.  "If we take the-first person who  walks through the door, how do we  know we're getting our money's  worth?" he asked. "We have a  policy of tendering and we never  follow it."  After further clarification by  Mr. McPhee as to the purpose and  requirements of a handbook, it  was decided to advertise for and  send letters to colleges seeking consultants to. draw up an emergency  handbook for the Sunshine Coast,  proposals fdr such handbooks to  be received no later than April 15,  1984.

Director for area E, and regional  board chairman Jim Gurney,  reported to the meeting on the cur-  dent Joan* Mahlman was the apparent lack of interest and public  apathy towards the association as  demonstrated by small turnouts to  recent meetings. Mrs. Mahlman  qffered the opinion that when  there are no hot public issues affecting the residents of area E, then  interest in the association's  business seems to decline. She urged members to. bring their  neighbours to meetings in the  future and recommended a  membership drive be a top priority  in 1984.  Meetings are held the second  Wednesday .of every raont  "If (Nuclear Free Zone) signs as  proposed were permitted for the  Sunshine Coast there'is an implication that other areas without*  similar signs are not 'Nuclear  Free". ' i  Such is the logic used in a letter  from Mr. H.R. Hunter of the  Ministry of Transportation and  Highways denying the Sunshine  Coast Regional District'permission  to erect 'Nuclear Free Zone' signs  on the Sunshine Coast.  * ''���  According,to Hunter, the only  signs he can give permission for are  those announcing the entry into a  regional district, which are already-'  in place. ��� r\  Realizing the futility of pursuing-,  that avenue further, Area C direcj^  tor, Jon McRae, moved-Mhat th��r?  board attempt to locate suitable/  pieces of private property and ar&*  range with, the owners to haye^ the  signs "erected there.  of the establishment, and providing they do not obstruct a  motorist's vision or1 in any way  pose a safety hazard. ���  ' A permit is needed to erect a sign  at the side of a right-of-way, and  according to a local highways  spokesman, such permission is  usually granted to service clubs,  church groups, and hotels/motels  that have been approved by the  Tourist Association.  The Department of Highways  has no control over signs erected in  municipalities or on Indian  reserves.     " '  With tongue in cheek, Area A  director Ian Vaughan suggested  that perhaps the SCRD could take  out six foot Square foreshore leases  beside the ferry terminals and have  floats with the signs on them there.

SWEET BUSINESS  The honey-producing enterprise  of the McKinnon family of  Veterans Road takes them to  Dawson Creek in the summer and  back home with honey to sell and  bees to winter in Gibsons. Their  . label Peace River Honey, the Parr-  mwik Apiary has been about for  three years now, the strange name  being made of their first name initials. Alfalfa and rapeseed on their  own quarter section and surrounding farms provide the source of  honey.  Another honey producer from  Bow Island, Alberta, has set up  temporary shop at School and Fletcher. Hazards in beekeeping? "In  Peace River," said the McKinnons,  "bears; but an electric fence keeps  them out." "In Bow Island it's  skunks and the only way is poison-5  Med eggs under each hive." |  BLRN!S NIGHT     / ?

Befor<|  you  balk-at  that   figurevvSook  around at over 50 per cent of our  adults and you'll have your answer  in 'more thari'one drink per day'J  people. How can the kids have any  perspective on what is or isn't  abuse? It is thereMhat this groupok  folks want to begin helping; They'  ^are not necessarily a group of strict  vhon drinkers but they are people^  who care enough to spend sometime, (a) talking honestly about  drinking,  (b) trying  to  have. ;a|  responsible   attitude   towards}-*  alcohol, and (c) trying to help stop|  the waste of human productivity^  and needless deaths attributed to,  alcohol. ��  One outcome of the meeting hSS  that a workshop be conducted tentatively for" January 27 (evening)  and January 28 (all day), for details &  phone Ron Cole.

For this  reason, I ask that more people give  and/or participate as .marchers.  The Kinsmen Rehabilitation Foundation, unlike the individual, cannot get by with less as this means a  direct cut in services to the people  who rely on them. . ,.>)W  I appeal to you people in our  yjaxea.^give what you can. If you  'caf)M> give money, maybe you can  gi^e us.some of your time. We are  particularly short of marchers in  the'Davis Bay-Selma Park area, the  Village of Sechelt and the'West  Sechelt areas'. We have in fact, only  two or three marchers' for these  areas. I would also like to see  volunteers for the Redrooffs-  Halfmoon Bay areas as well as the  Pender Harbour-Madeira Park  area.  In closing, I appeal to those of  you who feel you cannot give, to  remember the adage; "1 once complained because I had no shoes until I saw a man who had no feet".  Re-think your attitude, there are a  lot of men, women and children in  our Province who have lost -a lot  more than their feet, they need you  more than ever.

Alcohol Syndrome" graphically brought home another in-  lididus   4spect   of! '*bemon  ���V        ���Fran Byrmide photo  Djrink"y  Almost 50 people attended last  Saturday's lecture/discussion session of Foetal Alcohol Syndrome  presented by Dr. David Smith,  .' Pediatrician and Director of Van-  i couver Children's Hospital.   '  ' X Sponsored by the local branch of  Foster Pairents Association, Dr.  Smith's presentation was as, entertaining as it was informative, and  ?/clearly elucidated the many problems and symptoms inherited by  children born of drinking mothers.  The connection between alcohol  use and the birth of small, poorly  formed babies has been suspected  for years, even centuries, but it is  really only since 1973 that common  r.. physical .features and abnormalities  have been recognized and identified as the result of alcohol consumption by a mother during pregnancy. These recognizable charac-  ���teristics are referred to as Foetal  Alcohol Syndrome.  '/;���'��� .'M.E>rI Smith's many slides showed  the various manifestations of the  syndrome; small babies with small  heads (small brains), mid-face ap-  normalities .including small eyes,  droopy eyelids, crossed eyes, short  upturned noses, long fiat section  between hose and lips, thin lips, big  ears, and birth marks.  These babies never have the  usual baby fat, often have abnormal chests and rib cages, and  become small, thin children often  with bones fused in their spines.  When X-rayed, the bones in the  fingers show abnormal tapering at  the ends in 75 per cent of the cases.  These babies have fewer body and'  brain cells than normal, and often  suffer various organ disfunctions.  "These kids start life with less  than a full deck," said Dr. Smith.  "Fortunately it's a one-generation  syndrome.  Just how directly a mother's  drinking affects her unborn child  was graphically illustrated in Dr.  Smith's first slide, showing a foetus  tipping back a bottle and consuming alcohol at the same rate as its  mother. The alcohol level in the  baby's blood/quickly becomes the  very same as/the mother's - if she is  .08 so is baby; if she is quite drunk,  she is not alone.  But the undeveloped baby's  system cannot clear the alcohol as  fast as mother's can, so alcohol remains at a high level in its blood  even longer than -it does in the  mother's.  One thing that is becoming  abundantly clear is that there is no  time during pregnancy when it is  safe to drink. Studies with mice  have shown alcohol to cause facial  abnormalities when consumed at  the stage in pregnancy equivalent  to three weeks in a woman, so early  that many women do not even  realize they are pregnant.  THE SORE THROAT SEASON  During this time of year chances are  you'll awaken with a sore throat soon.  A DOCTOR SHOULD BE CONSULTEDIF:  -Pain interferes with swallowing.     X  -There Is pus on the back of the throat or tonsils.  -You also have a skin rash. ���  -The sore throat has lasted more than 2 days. *  -You have had rheumatic fever or kidney disease. 8  -A child with a sore throat has fever, headache, vomiting, �����  stomach pain or swollen glands. s��  TO RELIEVE SORENESS:  -Gargle every few hours with a teaspoon of salt in warm water.  -Take aspirin or acetaminophen.  -Drink plenty of fluids, especially warm ones. S  -Suck hard candies (Halls; Hacks, or Vlcks). Saliva created by  sucking the candy actually soothes the throat.  -Get plenty of rest.

But he is  a man driven by a dream-and he  sticks assiduously to his task. Day  after day, he toils away unaided  like some lonely Noah. Gradually,  the cumbersome vessel of his fancies begins to take shape and, as  contemporary photographs attest,  it does indeed resemble an eccentric Ark. It is cast on the grand  scale���82 feet long by 29 feet  wide. The superstructure consists  of a large cabin, 56 feet by 16 and  a 50 foot mast. "I planned it long  before Kon Tiki," Bird declares  with some pride.  When he is not engrossed in his  raft building, Jack Bird makes the  acquaintance of the other squatters  who  comprise  the   rag-tag  community.. There  is  a  motley  fanatic   known   only   as   "The  Preacher" 'X who   dispenses   unwanted religibus tracts.vfrom door  to   door   arid .paints   scriptural  verses on stones along the railway  track.   Bird   considers   him   a  monumental pest but cannot resist  engaging him in occasional heated ,.  ���arguments. Although an agnostic,  his omnivorous reading, habits include- a thorbugh knowledge of  the Bible and/he enjoys refuting  some  of  the. zealot's  wild-eyed  and frequently inaccurate claims.  Most   of   Jack " Bird's ' close  neighbours are less flamboyant.  They are mainly down-on-their-  luck, ex-servicemen like himself.  There'. is   la.ntern-jawed    Earl  :  Soristelie, a burly man who.does  diving   jobs,  around   Vancouver,  harbour. There 'is another  character called Old Pete who had  once been a blacksmith and offers  photographs of himself in "his  brawny prime. There is Fred  Buckley, a sort of entrepreneur  among the squatters, who owns  several cabins and sold Bird his  present abpde. And there is ill-  fated Ernie whom Bird does not  identify by a last name.       J  "Ernie was a cook for Northern  Construction Company who had  come home for a bit.of a holiday.  He arrived around'2:30 one rilorn-  ing too drunk to think and sat  down on a box of groceries He had i  . with him, right in the. middle of  the railway track and lessthan five  minutes walk from his waterfront  home. ��� ,.  My house was near the track  down there and I heard the piercing, strident shriek of a 90 foot-  dayliner as it came tearing along.  Poor Ernie \vas hit so hard that he  was scattered all over the place.  The newspapers reported that he  had been tossed 30 feet; .Thirty  feet? I picked up"piecesof the man  70 feet��frormthe point;of; impact!  He was so thoroughly cut tip that :  he had to be wrapped like a mum-  . my and cremated. M  For Ernie's funeral, the undertaker charged exactly the amount  ���  * of rnbney  found  on. the dead.;  man's body���about $450. Standing there in front, of the funeral  parlor on East Hastings Street, the  brother,' with tears and quavering  voice kept repeating: 'The poorest  funeral I've ever attended! The   ���  ' poorest funeral I've ever-attended!' �����.*..' -M-";    ',: ,-:' '."  To be continued.  At the Arts Centre  Myth and symbol  featured in show  by Belinda Macleod  'Cannibal Birds' at the Arte Centre.  'Pnina Granirer's exhibition at  the Arts Centre in Sechelt consists  of two sets of narrative paintings.'  In the ���Cannibal Birds' set there  is no particular sequence but allthe  ' works centre around one particular  idea - the search for self-awarene|s  as expressed through the symbol am  the forest (the world as a cajj|��  through nwhich  the/self wander^  amongst the maze of trees); anjp  the dramatic Indian myth of tn&  Cannibal Bird. This mythical bird  is a creature who lives at the end of  the world, devouring human beings  and is used by the artist to symbolize our ��� b^h devils o? fears,"  doubts, and temptations. M  The other paintings consist of  twelve works - the 'Trials of Eve'  ' suite, a story told from a feminine  point of viewt Initially triggered,by  a viewing of-Judy Chicago's film  on the making of her work 'The  Dinner Party' (a homage to  brilliant women), the artist was led  fo examine the state of women in  society as based on religious and  mythological attitudes.  Tluis* -Serious themes are expressed with a charming lightness  of touch and expert, control of  medium. ThVmanyMyariatioiis<of"  techniqueV'the soft, restrained!colour and the decorate /designing  are i given strength and originality  by the 'artist's conscious use of  them as further symbols.  The exhibition is on until  January 29.  The Arts Centre is at Trail and  Medusa, Sechelt, and is open  Wednesday to Saturday from 11 to  4,; Sundays from 1 to 4.

' Pat Murphy, area representative, gave a comprehensive rundown on affairs of the area and  noted that there is not much going  on due to the recession. He  pointed out, however, that this is  the leading area of growth on the  Peninsula.  [ Mention was made of the new  community hall which will be built  at West Sechelt school for the sum  of around $90,000.  , Murphy also spoke of the water  supply for the area and pointed  out that Trout Lake is frequently  used as a back-up system for the  Halfmoon Bay area. It was suggested from the floor that Trout-  Lake should either be used for  swimming and skating,' etc.,' or'  should be kept solely for water  supply. If the lake is for recreation  purposes,   an   alternative   water  source could be used for drinking  and household water supply, it  seems that signs were going to be  posted prohibiting swimming in  the Jake, but the Department of  Health would not allow this.  Somewhere along the way  something will have to be done  about this situation.  Another matter discussed was  the closure of the public accesses  to the Sargents Bay area. Seems  that dnce again members of the  public are being���denied their right  to beach access. The same old  story goes on year after year and  the public sits back quietly and  permits this. When will they ever  learn that they have rights?  One raises one's hands in  despair when the question of the  Redrooffs Trail is brought up and  a member of the Board of the  Ratepayers Association makes the  remark that "nobody ever used  the trail anyway". Mr. Murphy  has agreed to look into the matter  of beach accesses on the  Redrooffs Road and I hope he has  some fuCk with this venture.

His ideas sounded  feasible but it would take some  time for it to be put into effect.  In the meantime, one of the  best ways of directing people to  your home is by remembering the  number of the fire hydrant nearest  to you. It is of the utmost importance that you memorize this  number.  The next speaker, Art McPhee  of the Provincial Emergency Programme,   also   reminded   his  listeners of an important number  for everyone to remember -that of,-,  the ambulance. He was shocked to' '  note that nobody in the hall was '  able to give this number which is  885-5191. >  Towards the close of the  meeting the Chairman asked for  opinions regarding splitting up the  Area B Ratepayers Association into sections. It was stated from the  floor that it would make a lot of  sense to have a branch which  represented the Halfmoon Bay  area as distinct from the West  Sechelt area, as they each have  different needs. This is being considered. "  BLOOD DONOR CLINIC  Tuesday, February 28, is' the  date of the next blood-donor  clinic. , o  PARENTS, MEETING' , -- rr��  ' There will be an evening to get  acquainted with the new teacher at  Halfmoon Bay School on January  19, at 7:30 p.m. Teacher Maureen  Moorby is most impressed with  the group of little ones in her care  and they seem to all have hit it off  just fine.  SINGER AT BAY  'Hear tell that singer/song  writer, Glen Yarborough was in  Halfmoon Bay the other day and  has taken quite a fancy to the  place. In fact he could well  become a new neighbour  somewhere along the way. He is at  present living on Vancouver  Island and is doing commercials  out of Vancouver. Would be nice  to have Glen in the  neighbourhood - might even consider having him audition for the  Halfmoon Hams!

They finished second in the tournament. .Geo** Maturo photo  Eagle girls second  Chatelech senior girls basketball  team played well in a tournament  hosted by the Eagles on Friday and  Saturday.  Chatelech finished second in the  four-team tourney behind a very  strong Seycove Panthers squad  from North Vancouver. Lord  Tweedsmuir finished third and Ab-  botsford Christian School was  fourth.  Guard Jennifer Wetmore was  named to the all-star team for the  second week in a row. Eagles coach  Lawrence Stoochnbff was particularly pleased by the strong play  of Keily Jardine, the excellent  Chatelech play-maker and re-  bounder. Also mentioned were the  strong play of. Diana Polok and  Heidi Brongers.     M  The Eagle girls will travel to  Powell River this coming weekend  to play in a tournament hosted by  Max Cameron. :  Cougars win big  "Tfre Elphinstone Cougars senior  boys basketball team, stung by its  first ever loss to Chatelech Tuesday, came back the next two nights  with strong performances against  Cariboo Hill and St. Georges.  On Wednesday at Elphinstone,  all star guard Joel MacKown, who  missed the Chatelech match due to  illness, sparked the Cougars with'  25 points in a 73-52 trouncing of:  Cariboo" Hill. Dick Lansdell aJsp  scored 25 points for the winners.  On Thursday against St.  Georges in Vancouver,  Elphinstone played another strong  game, dumping the exclusive  private school 72-54.

"The historic occasion was  Tuesday night in the Elphinstone  gym. In front of more than 100  spectators, the Eagles surprised the  Cougars 53-45.  It was not a classic game. The  first three periods were dull and  not particularly well played. In fact  both teams were unable to score  for almost six minutes of the opening quarter..  The big Elphinstone squad,  missing its superb play-maker, Joel  MacKown, managed to maintain a  lead'throughout the first three  quarters of play and was well in the  lead 38-33 at the three quarter pole.  In the fourth quarter however, a  very tight, disciplined, Eagles  defense forced numerous Elphi  turnovers^ and the well-coached  Chatelech team banged in 20  points to Elphinstone'S seven.  Leading scorers for the Eagles  were  George Webb and  Panos  Grames, but the real credit for the  win should go to a very hard-nosed  defense, particularly from David  Foxall, Dominic Brooks and Paul  Darby, who came off the bench to  hang all over the big Elphi forwards. Elphi star, Dick Lansdell,  who sat out much of the game, was  unable to get untracked because of  the aggressive Cougar defenders.  Many of the Chatelech players  have been trying to win against  Elphinstone since grade eight and  this victory was a big moment for  them. The Eagles however have  been creeping up on the Cougars  over the past couple of months. In  the first of their three games so far  this year, Elphinstone crushed the  Eagles by more than 20 points, but  in a December rematch at  Chatelech, "the Sechelt team came  within seconds of nipping Elphi..  On Tuesday hovvever, the coor--  dinatod team play of Chatelech  overcame the long-running jinx.  Elphinstone will be looking, for,  revenge at the end of January when  they travel to Chatelech for a night  game. Anyone interested in observing this exciting rivalry is invited to  come and watch what is almost certain to be one of the most entertaining games of the year.  .  Chatelech edged in tourney  S'.: *:.���:���  The Chatelech Eagles senior  boys basketball team, still looking  for their first tournament victory,  fell short again on the weekend losing 65^60 to host team Lord  Tweedsmuir in the final of a tournament in the Lower Mainland.  Getting off to a good start in the  two-day tourney, Chatelech  thumped Pemberton 68-50 on Friday night. In the final however, the  Eagles came up against a fired-up  Tweedsmuir team that refused to  collapse under the pressure of the  Chatelech defense. .The  Tweedsmuir coach conceded after  the game that this was "far and  away" the best game his team has  played all year.  The Eagles George Webb, who  tallied J. 8 points in each of the two  games, was named most valuable  player   in  the  tournament  and  guard Dave McLeod was named to  the all-star team.      m  ' MMM:mm  f  Chatelech travels to St^eprges;  in Vancouver on Tuesday; the next  . home game is Thursday, January  26 at 8 p.m. against Max Cameron  of Powell River.

Place compensated local BMX pedal bike racers  to some degree for the sorry state  of the actual track as they competed in the Cycle Canada show  last weekend. The track was set out  on-fJ^e^nCTete floor /of the  stadium with only two very small  jdmpsjtp test; riders'; skills. The  slippery surface caused many spills  and injuries until riders discovered  that hair spray on the bike tires  gave improved grip.  Another compensation was the  chance to witness the outstanding  trick-riding of the top US riders,  R.Lk Osborn and Mike Buff,  although their show was disappointingly short.  .' Fourteen riders from the Coast  competed   against   the   Lower  Mainland and Washington riders  and gained invaluable, experience  against some top-notch bikers.  On Saturday afternoon the most  successful of the local riders were  ! Sam Peterson, who ivon the main  race for 13 year old beginners,  Graham Paul who was first in the  eight year old beginners class and  Brendan Mattel who was third in  the main for nine year beginners.  Other riders who reached the  main-in their class were Mark Bu-  jan, Doug Edwards, Joel  Charlebois, Chris Wilson and  Lance Gregorchuk. To get into the  main the riders must place each  time in their three motos or run-off  races.  Results of the rest of the  weekend racing will appear next  week.

Stanley Jpe, will be one of up to 94  delegates in Vancouver for three  days this week to attend the  'Pacific Planning Symposium'.  Hosted by Dr. Owen Anderson,  Director General of the B.C..  Region of the Department of Indian Affairs, the symposium has  invited one member from each  tribal group in the province to the  symposium to discuss- issues of  economic development^educatioh,  training, management and Indian  self-government'  Chief Joe sees the symposium as  an opportunity to win. "a strong,  resolution supporting all initiatives -  recommended   in   the   Penner  Report"    on    Indian    self-  government, which is currently being  considered. by  cabinet  and-  which will go before the.House of  Commons in March. :      X '"-X'-".  The. Sechelt Band is seeking the  passage of "enabling legislation"  - which would allow it to be governed by the conditions of the Sechelt   ���  Indian Band Act rather than by the  Indian 'Act. The four main areas  over which it wishes to assume  responsibility   are;   control   over  membership; title to reserve lands;  payment of income tax; and local  government. ���  In a recent letter to Chief Joe, .  Minister of Indian Affairs,. John  C. Muriro, states, "I appreciate  your   continuing   interest   in  developing your proposals oh Indian self-government with Mine. I  can assure ^you that the Sechelt  .  Band's   proposals   will   receive,  priority consideration as we move  into a new relationship between the  federal  government   and   Indian -  peoples. More specifically, I can  assure you that your proposals and  objectives are in line with the options for Indian self-government'  that I have been developing in ton-  cert with Indian leaders at the national level."  Thus encouraged, Joe is seeking  open support for the Penner  Report recommendations from all  political parties and from all Indian  .groups. '��� M  ' ,..'������; ��� .':;'. :���.��������� ':   Mmm-m*  In his remarks to the Pacific.mx  Symposium,  pre-releases; .to  theX~  .Coast.'-NtrnX, Joe ^sta**-?*:"���','''PrXXS?

' 'The native people of this country have a opportunity through the  recommendations of the Penner  Commission to move forward  now."      '���'"������;. '; 'MV 'X;' .  Joe continues in his address,  "fhereis no future for the Sechelt  people if new legislation is not introduced in this session of parliament. (We seek)not the final solution which will take place through  the constitutional process, but an  interim step to enable those who  wish to develop a new arrangement  with the federal government  through individual negotiation and  agreement to do so....        M  "Those bands or tribal, groups  who wish to make changes under  the current structure and within the  Indian Act should be encouraged  .to do so. We support you.   -  "Those who wish to wait for the  . ultimate solution through constitutional process - we support you. ^  "We, and others who wish to.  move now through the introduc-'  tion of interim legislation, ask onljj,  that you support us." j,  Band members will be going to  Toronto in February to attend the-  Special Assembly of First Nations,^  being held in response to the sub-,  committee report on Indian,self-*;  government, and will be in Ottawa^  to lobby for enabling lagislation^  when the Penner Report comes*  before the house in March.       ���- J  How safe is our meat?  * by Gwen Robertson 886-3780  GOVT MEAT INSPECTION  How safe-can we be in our consumption of meat now that regular  government inspection of meat is  no longer." -  As much as we bitch and complain about taxes and the high cost  of civil servants, there is one aspect  of government that we take for  granted - that is our regulatory service. We did enjoy, iti Canada, excellent food and drug inspection  and control to the limit of available  information.: Our standards have  always been high. The Registrar  General's' office is accessible to  every consumer with even a hint of  mishandling, contamination or  whatever. Complaints are usually  investigated and dealt with immediately.  Regular meat inspection / has  been conducted at the source as-  well as handling, processing and  packaging in order to meet  Canada's high standards. This has  all been changed. Since last April  there has been a gradual erosion  and meat is now spot checked -  perhaps once a week - and the  'Canada Approved* stamp is now  being .used by the meat, processor.  This heretofore, 'seal, of approval'  which was kept under lock and key  by government inspectors, may  now be applied by employees of  the company that the government  is supposed to be inspecting.  Can we believe that high standards will be maintained by companies and their employees who rely on profit for their existence?  Should we do something abqutit?  Let me know what you think by  calling the above number or by  dropping a line to the Coast News.

Police have a composite  drawing of the suspect in the  Todd's Clothing Store robbery last  December 12. He is described as a  white male, 30 years, 5*10", 165  lbs, with black hair, full beard and  a moustache. He was wearing a  dark blue toque with a blue ball on  top, blue three quarter length plaid  ' jacket and blue jeans. Any person  having information regarding this  offence is requested to contact the  Gibsons RCMP.  "  7��/^v^  A theft was reported on the 9th  from the Marine Crescent area;  two red metal car ramps were  stolen from a garage. On the same  day, police received a report of  willful damage from Highway 101  near Wyngaert Road. Two of the  tires of a parked pickup truck were  punctured, maybe with a nail.  A local adult male was apprehended by police as he drove  off the ferry at Langdale at 7:30  a.m. and charged with impaired  driving. His condition was  reported to police by authorities on  the ferry.  Finally, Art McKay pleaded  guilty to a charge of injuring an  animal and was fined $350. The  charge was laid on McKay following an incident last November8in  which McKay attacked a chained  dog with a chainsaw. The dog had  to be destroyed as a result of injuries received by McKay.  SECHELT RMCP  There were several thefts this  week; someone attempted to steal a  canoe on the 8th, causing in the attempt $100 worth of damage to the  car it was mounted on. The car was  parked on Wakefield Road at the  ��� time;''-.-.���'������  On the same day, there were two  reports of theft from the East Porpoise Bay Road area; a truck, a  welder and some booster cables  were; stolen from a residence and  some gas was stolen from the Cho-  quier and Sons welding lot. Two  juveniles were apprehended in connection with these thefts and were  held for questioning. The truck,  the welder and booster cables were  recovered by police and the youths  are believed to be responsible for  that theft. Police have determined  that the' gas was stolen by the  youths.  A CB radio was reported stolen  on the 10th from Wildwood Road  in Halfmoon Bay. The radio was  worth $100. On the 11th, an 8'  Sabot Bram sailboat valued at $300  was reported stolen trorn the  Redrooffs Road area; the/: boat;  mahogany: in colour, could have  been taken in the last two months.  Also on the 1 lth, an aluminium extension ladder, left on the side of  the road near the arena by the  owner; was stolen, m  Three break and entries were  reported this Week; a Fisher VCR  and three movies were stolen on  the 7th from a NorWest Bay Rqad  residence; another NorWest Bay  Road residence was reported on  the 12th to have been entered  sometime last December. Nothing  was stolen from, that residence but  it appears that some-food was consumed, mm'M'-'MM m?. ���,...,-:. .  On the 13th, a trailer at the  Chatelech Secondary School housing the Alternate School was  broken into and some money was  taken.".  On the 12th, police received a .  report that a prowler had been seen  in the NorWest Bay Road area on  Mason Road;  Vandalism was reported ont he  11th from the Fisheries Department in Madeira Park. Vandals cut  a line on the side of the department's boat and disconnected the  automatic pump. The boat would  have sunk if it hadn't been seen sitting low in the. water the next morning. About $400 worth of damage  was done to the boat by sea water.  Two incidents which may or may  not be related were reported to  police on the 8th. A man wjas  travelling northbound on Highway  101 near Hill Road in West Sechelt  when the windshield of his car suddenly exploded. The man neither  saw nor heard anyone although he  told police, he was certain a bullet  was responsible for the damage to  his windshield. Police patrolled the  area but saw no one. That incident  occurred at 4 p.m. Earlier that day,  police received a complaint from  the same area that shots were being  fired. Investigation of the complaint by police was also fruitless.  Finally, Sechelt RCMP have a  lifejacket, a 12/12 Lumberman,  found on Redrooffs Road on the  9th. Inside the jacket is written the  name B.

'  The only error, as far as 1 am  concerned, in the above lines is that  I read them oh the morning of my  40th birthday and they certainlyM  not only upset me prbfo^ridly^but  were, lam sure, largely,responsible  for the events that followed on that  remarkable day. -.--^-  Like--many "veterans, the post- -  war years were far from happj^ 'i  ones for me. I seemed unable to  cope   with   the   transition   from  military to civilian life; and; to add  to my confusion, things were going  badly on the domestic front. I had:  always had a restless.nature and;  now t hat the excitement and urgency of the war years had abated, l.U  found life so damned dull ahdM  uninteresting that MI Msought  any^;  means of escape. It was not long in  coming! "-._;  I obtained my Melease from the  RCAF out at Jericho Beach on  February   8,    1946.   Strangely  enough, in view of my somewhat  erratic  career  in   His   Majesty's  Armed Forces, they (the Brass) did  their utmost to try and persuade  me to sign up for another five  years, but I was having none of iti  All I wanted was io get out of the  "monkey suit" I had worn for the  past five years and away from the  discipline and restraints that the  wearing of it entailed. 1 was sick  and tired of the contradictions and  senselessness  I  had  seen  during s  those war years. I was hoping to '  find some form of sanity in a  civilian job and a quiet life at home  with a wife and possibly,, if things !,  went right, a family. Thai I was  deluding myself I failed to take in- j  to account, but I have to face it J  now that I was as incapable of set- j  fling into some quiet, dull routine [  then as I am today. The leopard  cannot change his spots that easily.  I took the first job that.was ofV  fered With the B.C. Forestry Serj-  vice On one of their survey boats,  the B.C. Forester. It was seasonal  work and I spent a pleasant enough  summer up and down the west  coast of Vancouver.^ Island. It was  not a hard job, in the sense that I  was overworked, as the "boys"  (ten in number) were ashore a great  deal of the time surveying timber,  which left me with only the boss,  Mr. Silburn and the chief engineer  to cook for. Seeing that most of  the chaps were university students,  we were back in the Fraser River  around the end of September in  time for the fall and winter  semester.  I couldn't afford to stay out of  work too long, as we had bought a  house in Vancouver's east side and  there were mortgage payments that  had to be kept up. I cannot recall  all the different jobs I had during  this period but they ranged from  work with the CPR in the dining  cars, to a brief stint at the Nitinat  gold mines out of Port Alberni.

I was back with the  Forest Service on the same vessel  and, with the completion of the  west coast survey, we spent the remainder of the season over on the  Queen Charlotte Islands. The  winter and spring followed a  similar pattern as formerly but this  time!even worked in a short-order  .{restaurant oh Robson Street and I  . hatedievery damned minute of it.  I find it strange that I finally acquiesced,' at, Mary's insistence, to  buying our own restaurant out on  Kingsway in the McKay district.  ���������-...Actually-.it- was far from being  pretentious, as it was a little rundown coffee bar, but I used the  balance of my Service credits getting it fixed up and things went well  for a time. We were not in the. processor making a fortune there but  ' we paid our bills and made living  expenses besides. I can only  presume that Mary was happy  about it all but, on the contrary, I  was miserable and longed to get  away from this dull, prosaic existence.  It was not only the reading of  Robert Service that unsettled me,,  but I realized that here I was 40  years of age and all my bpyhoiod  dreams were so far unfulfilled.  Sure, 1 had seen a little of the world  with a trip to Africa on the  passenger liners, an emigration to  Canada when things got a little out  of hand in Kent, England and,  later, a revisit to England and  Europe during the war years, but  there was so much of the world I  hadn't seen and time was slipping  by so quickly.  I had to do something about it  and do it fast and the opportunity  came out at that pokey little  restaurant on Kingsway. I won't go  into all the ghastly details, but my  wife and I had a terrific argument  over one of the waitresses and it  was all I needed as an excuse to  take* 0f. I yanked off my white  apron, phoned a taxi, stopped  briefly at the liquor store on  'Hastings, near Main, and stormed  into  the  West  Coast  Seamen's  js-Uniori offices oh Water St.  m: There-was a ship, the StS;TTdh-������'  91iaraV heeding a1 c6dkr so I tossed in v  my card and that night at 7 p.m.  we passed under the Lion's Gate  Bridge, heading for Japan.

Send entries to the Coast News, Box 460, Gibsons, in time* to  reach the newspaper office by Saturday of this week. Last week's  winner is D.G. Reid, Highway 101, Sechelt whose thorough  answer deserves to be quoted: "The moose head shown in the picn  ture was hung by my father and mother, Roily and Josie Reid,  over 25 years ago on the property on which my wife and I are now  building a new house. Fortunately (unfortunately?) your  photographer got the picture when she did since I have it oh my  list of 'to do's* to refurbish arid rehang it on another tree closer to  our driveway, where it may not appear so rustic. The location, of  course, is on the Reid property, Highway 101, on the waterfront  side, between Mills and McCpuft Roads.'V  Taking advantage of the $13  commuter rates on our ferry may  not be as simple as some people  think, according to residents who  have been inconvenienced over the  past couple of weeks. M  ; In theory, regular ferry travellers  can purchase a book of five "so-  called" commuter tickets for a  substantial saving <$65 for five car  and driver tickets and $15 for five  passenger tickets). However," as  many disgruntled ferry users have  discovered, the tickets can only be  purchased from the ferry office in  Langdale and Horseshoe Bay; no  tickets are sold in the toll booths.  cause problems  minute rush to catch the Langdale  ferry, she was tbldat the toll booth  that she would have to park her car  and go into the terminal office to  buy her tickets. Not wanting to  miss the too infrequent ferry, she  drove on board assuming -she  would buy her tickets on her way  back.  On returning through Horseshoe  Bay, the same problem occurred.  She was told she would have to pay  the higher $18 rate, then'go into  the.terminal Office for her tickets;  There is no clear explanation as  to why tickets are sold only in the  offices, but travellers -..-.. should  remember to get to the terminal  early if they wish to purchase  tickets.at the,cheaper-rate.    v.,v.
