Array rtl-.- i  : I  Legislative Library  Parliament Buildings  Victoria, B.C.  V8V 1X4  85.4  Streamings value queried  by Fran Burnside  ^Paying close attention at last week's public forum on proposed new graduation requirements were (left to  . iright) Pender Harbour secondary principal Martin Wilson, Chatelech principal June Maynard,  JElphinstone principal Barry Boulton, and president of the Sunshine Coast Teachers' Association and  l|echelt elementary principal Brian Butcher. , -F^nBumsidephito  The   minister   of   education's  discussion paper on graduation requirements   came   in   for   stiff  criticism at a public forum attended by over 60 people at Chatelech  school last Tuesday.  ,   Chaired by Superintendent pf  Schools John Denley, the forum  saw presentations, questions and  concerns, raised by school trustees,  teachers, parents and a panel of  four school principals, fielded by  |lr. Bruce Naylor, one of eight  Representatives of the ministry of  "education  currently  touring  the  province to get public feedback on  itfie   proposed   changes   in   curriculum   and   graduation   requirements.  M Naylor stressed at the start that  he wanted input on "what we  should look at again", and that  "changes are possible, and may  even be desirable" in the White  Paper which proposes that  students decide upon entering  grade 11 which of three streams of  courses they will follow: Arts and  Science, leading to university en-  ' trance; Applied Arts and Science,  leading to direct job entry and  post-secondary vocational programmes;' Career Preparation, offering advance placement in career  programmes and direct entry into  the work force.  Other changes include, all  students being required to complete at least one mathematics and  one science course in their senior  years; physical education becoming  an ^elective; the necessity to com  plete at least four '12' level courses  with grade 11 pre-requisites;  language offerings expanded to include Chinese (Mandarin) and  Japanese; number of passed classes  required for graduation raised  from 12 to 13 out of a minimum of  14.  There was general concern that,  once a student had committed  himself.to one "stream" of classes,  he would not be able to switch later  if he failed a class pr changed his  mind. The discussion paper suggests that "by selecting their  courses carefully", students taking  Applied Arts and Science or Career  Preparation majors "will be able  to qualify for university  admission". However, principals  pointed out that their timetables  Please turn to page 16  On boundary question  E still edgy  leading the Beaters in the Timber Days Parade was one funny looking lady who posed with her (?) fopt  ;on a Beater tongue. We see the chainsaw and the co-pilot, but where's the-Beater Buddy?  . ' ' ���Sandy Kmerson pholo  Rankin slams Socreds  Long-time Vancouver alderman  Harry Rankin was on the Sunshine  MToast recently, a guest of the  iSolidarity Coalition in the second  ���of their continuing series of informational Seminars.  'X Rankin's topic was the effect of  .provincial legislation on local  government but during the course  of the day at Elphinstone secondary school the self-described  radical took a broad swing at many  df the policies of the present provincial government and the  political situation in B.C. generally.  Rankin spoke for about an hour  during the morning session before  participating in the lively question  and answer session with approximately 60 people in attendance.  Rankin plunged right into the  subject of new provincial legislation.  "What is this so-called new  philosophy we are hearing about,"  he demanded. "There is nothing  new in it. Capitalism is always in  trouble. The propaganda is updated and re-enacted.  "Since the 1920's we've been  hearing the same arguments. Times  are tough. We've priced ourselves  out of the markets, etc. Every  government finds its justification.  Today, Fraser Institute provides  the ideology for a government of  car dealers and high school  dropouts,"-said Rankin.  The irrepressible Rankin who  failed to get elected in 10 tries in  Vancouver polling before fianlly  winning a seat oh city council  where he has lead the polls for  years, was as critical of the official  opposition in B.C. as he was of the  government.  "The problem is that the working class in this country has not  formed a clear idea of socialism.  Reward offered  A reward of $100 is being offered by the board of directors of St.  Mary's Hospital for information leading to the apprehension and  arrest of the person or persons responsible for the theft of letters  from the "St. Mary's Hospital" sign at the entrance to the hospital.  The blue letters, made of aluminum, will cost between $55 and  $60 each to replace, to a total of between $600 and $700.  AU information will be received in strictest confidence, and may  be given to hospital administrator Nick Vucurevich at 885-2224, or  to RCMP Staff Sargeant Doug Burke at 885-2226.'  Food Bank news  Fifty-two boxes and bags were handed out at the Gibsons Food  Bank last distribution day, helping a total of 259 people. A special  thanks to Vern Oulton for donating six boxes of meat.  Next distribution day is Wednesday, May 23 at 1 p.m. Please  remember to throw your Super-Valu tapes in the Food Bank bin.  Even a little bit helps.  Highways meeting  Officials from the Department of Highways attended a meeting  Wednesday with Gibsons council to discuss the subject of a major   5  grid network and access roads in Gibsons. . I  Town planner, Rob Buchan, said that further discussion will en-   I  sue until an agreement is reached. J  Social democracy is the humaniza- ���  tion of capitalism - which can't be/;  done." ,        X y.  In, reference to the events of last ..  fall, Rankin said that at that time !''  the Solidarity Coalition was well  on its way to an effective challenge  of the present government's 'policy  of pauperizing the people' before it  was sold out by IWA leader Jack  Munro. The NDP was' not seen as  rallying the forces'.  "The NDP tried to move right  to fit the mood of the people, but it  was not the mood of the people  that had moved right but the  prevailing establishment propaganda that was to the right," said  Rankin.  Rankin said that the Vancouver  Council and other local governments are facing an ever rising  number of pleas for aid as the cuts  effected by the provincial government take effect.  "As the provincial government  makes its cuts it forces more and  more of the problems onto the  micipalities.   I've   seen   family  ople and young people lined up  in a crummy alley at the Food  Bank. Welfare Workers are now  referring\people to the Food Bank  -'Sorry we can't give you any  money. Go to the Food Bank'",  charged Rankin.  "The wrong people are being  restrained. This government is  redistributing wealth with a  vengeance. To say, as they do, that  we have no money is an unadorned  lie," said Rankin. "They found  $417 million for B.C. Rail to pay  off debts so they could borrow  more to ship subsidized coal to  Japan. That money is stolen from  the municipalities, from the health  service, and from the schools of  this province and goes straight into  the pockets of the government's  friends." \  Rankin addressed himself, in  response to a question from the  floor, to the question of cuts in  Legal Aid.  "Before the changes Legal Aid  was paying lawyers in B.C. a very  low fee - less than half of that paid  in Ontario. Now it has been further  gutted. How do the inarticulate  and the poor voice their protest?  This is another Socred cut at civil  liberties," charged Rankin who  heads a large law firm in Vancouver as well as his high-profile  work on the city council.  .   The touchy topic of the expain.  Asion of Gibsons' boundaries was  Mhe main subject of; discussion at a  recent meeting of the Elphinstone  '  [Electors' 'Association.  "I  In   attendance^were   Gibsons.  Mayor  Larry  Labonte,  Gibsons  .'aldermen Ron jsjeilson and John  ���Burnside,  Gibsons  planner  Rob  -Buchan,   SCRD   planners   Jim  {Johnstone and' Judy Skagstad and  Marea E director Jim Gurney, along  ..���with 40 members of the association.   XX X-X:X.-   '���'���-. :XX:'',  ���:'   Joint recommendations by plan-  .^ners Buchan and Johnstone were  j intended v^>  produce  a rational  M^olutionM   to    the:    historic  MM'piecem&Jtj" and "illogical" pattern of boundary extension around  I the tp$hi of Gibsons, through the  %submfssion   of   more   definitive  .   .^.guidjiipes fpr: board and council  M* ���% , Ini the past, while Gibsdris'did  ndt/solicit boundary extension, it  welcomed any applications for inclusion in the municipality, which  has resulted in extremely ragged  and irregular boundaries with no  planning basis. It has also caused  resentment in area E due to Gibsons encroaching on its territory.  Although it was stressed by both  Mayor   Labonte   and   planner  Buchan .that, based on the number  of vacant, undeveloped lots in Gibsons, the town has no need or even  desire to expand, it was the consensus of the two plannersthat there is  "a need to re-align town boundaries in a more rational manner,  preferably following established  road allowances as opposed to property lines".  The planners' report went on to  state, "Some form of rational realignment, at this point in time  wqluld facilitate completion of the  official community plan of Gibr  sons and of the official settlement  plans for the 'Elphinstone' and  'West Howe Sound' areas." It is  difficult to make such plans when  the boundaries keep changing.  The   re-alignment   suggested  basically has the western boundary  of Gibsons follow Mahan Rpad  ���.nar"J>i;,|ffci^  HighwaylOl,: with the exception'of  afurther jog to the west just before  reaching the highway, and the northern boundary becoming an extension o'f Reed Road, eastward to  the Chekwelp Indian Reserve.  The. recommendation is that,  should the proposed boundary  change receive the approval of 60  per cent of the property owners affected and come into effect, no  further requests for extension  would be considered until the ex--  piry of the five-year life of the of-  ficial community and official settlement plans.  The other option would be to do  nothing and to freeze the town  boundaries as they are.  Area E residents questioned why  they would want to give up proper-,  ty and subsequently a portion of  their tax base, expecially in view of.  the regional board's-new 10-year,  water plan and the debt which the '  area must service for it. \.  Director Gurney noted that the  -  recommendations have hot dealt  . with financial considerations, only  with   the   problems : inhereritM i" '���  psecemenal expansionandi'.thfcir?  ritation"? which  such, ��� applicationsM  cause.' He concurred with one resi-. ;���  . dent's observation that, aside from  i^ c<?n.troi,.l��od &ue$-va��c*&t }p.& ���  lothe other services, the main fhjijg^  those "are '�� residents who joined  Gibsons would' get would be a  doubling of their local taxes.  Questioned also was the application of the ''straight line -  boundary" theory in' some areas, *  while considering previous applications for inclusion in Gibsons and  creating new jogs in the boundary  in others.  Stay at '82 level  Unionists seek action  by Fran Burnside  The joint caucus of the Canadian Paperworkers' Union (CPU)  and the Pulp and Paper Woodworkers of Canada (PPWC) will  meet in Vancouver this Tuesday,  May 22, to consider their position  at the impasse in the pulp industry  dispute and to decide a course of  action for the near future.  As a result of the" provincial  government's Bill 18, pulp mills  were reopened and workers  legislated back to work under the  provisions of their previous collective agreement. The government  asked that the two parties reopen  negotiations and come to a settlement, or it would legislate one.  And no job action was allowed.  But industry has made its "final,  final offer", the unions have rejected it by an 88 per cent vote  province-wide (96 per cent at Port  Mellon), and management has said  no further negotiations wilt take  place.  "The mills are running normally, so why would they want to  resume negotiations?" asked CPU  Local 1119 president Steve  Holland. "They've got what they  want now���a cheap (1982) agreement, and the unions' right to  negotiate taken away by legislation. We can't apply any pressure  on the companies without breaking  the law."  Under the terms of Bill 18, the  government is to legislate a settlement if the two parties can't arrive  at one, but it now seems reluctant  to do so.  "We're left without a settlement, and who cares?" asked  Holland. "Not the companies,  because the mills are running. Not  the government, because the  economy is no longer being affected."  "When will we receive benefits  negotiated before Bill 18? Or when  will the government impose its  agreement? Are we to continue  producing pulp without one, and  with no means to negotiate to an  end position?" he continued.  "I suggest the mills will stay  manned, and the workers will continue to collect their 1982 wages,"  stated Holland, "but there will be  very low pulp production after July  1."  Oh a futher philosophical note,  Holland concluded, "The new  reality provides the reduction of  workers' rights, the end of free col- ���_  lective bargaining and a govern--  ment without the fortitude to.  follow through with its own legisla-.  tion.  " It is one thing to have your ship��  blown out of the water during a��  battle,  but  must  they leave  us  swimming   with   a   bunch   of  sharks?" ;  The world famous, Woo Woo, the clown, zig-zagged along the  street in Madeira Park during the May Day Parade last Saturday  flapping his big feet and tongue to the children's delight.  ���Sand) Kmerwm pholo Coast News, May 21,1984  Observers of the international.scene were treated to a rare  spectacle this week. Two international leaders posing for official  statements at the outset of an official visit saying publicly  diametrically opposite things.  Usually they don't do that. Usually they patch things oyer in  double talk and usually that is at the end of a visit. Usually at the  start of these formal diplomatic dances the leaders do little but  ��� utter verbal curtsies at each other.  But when the president of Mexico visited Ronald Reagan in  Washington last week they both made clear their different views  on the tortured situation in Central America.  The president of Mexico made what has become a ciistomary  plea for letting the people of the region sort the matter out  themselves, for the cessation of the shipment of military hardware and the recourse to political and economic solutionis to  political and economic problems.  Reagan made what for him is an entirely predictable statement. The Russkies were up to their tricks in America's  backyard and by God we'd have to stand tall and stand up to  them and it was, by implication, too bad the people themselves  as represented by the leader of the largest country in the area  didn't understand that.  The fact of the matter is that if the history of mankind is to  continue much further then such as the American president with  values firmly rooted in a pre-nucleai world will have to leave the  world stage. ���     <  A healing task  It is essentially a healing task that awaits Bob Skelly as leader of  the NDP. He seems well placed to heal quickly whatever rifts exist in the NDP.  Whether he can be as effective later in healing this troubled  province remains to be seen. We wish him well.  5 YEARS AGO  The Canadian Paper-  workers' Union in B.C. will  sit down with the Pulp and  Paper Industrial Relations  Bureau to hammer out a  new contract.

Present for the  celebrations and leaning against the fence in front were Jack Dunn,  right, arid Richard Reeves who, had lived in Roberts Creek with his  family since November 11,1918, has come home from working in  Vancouver for Queen Victoria's birthday holiday. "Everyone  wanted a community hall," said Mr. Reeves, "so men like A.R.  Reeves, F.W. Downes, Fred Barnes, Mel Raines and W.H. Forrest  got together and built' one/' With their bare hands and mattocks  they cleared the land, then built the hall with hammers and saws,  hand-splitting the shakes for the roof. "It was bigger than any  barn-raising," added Mr. Reeves. "It took months to build that  hall, for it was 1934, the "dirty thirties", and those people had to  eke out a living at the same time. They probably didn't realize what  they were getting into, but once they had started they just kept ori;  until they were finished." Opening day was a warm one, with the  ladies shielding themselves from the sun with umbrellas, and later  that night there was the first of the hall's many dances, one for the  whole family to enjoy - "probably with Chuck Oidershaw playing;  accordion and Teddy Burns on banjo," chuckled Mr. Reeves at the  memory. There were dances most Saturday nights after that, arid**  the community no longer used Elphinstone Bay public school, sit-,  ting on the northeast corner of Lockyer Road and Highway 101, J  for its meeting place. ���*?.  -Helen McCall photo, C.J. Merrick collection, courtesy of L.RM  Peterson.  O)  Musings  John Burnside  A \yeek ago Friday Ray Skelly  passed through the Coast News office and this rural newspaperman  asked him a couple of questions,  about the big world outside the  Sunshine Coast where Canadians  are exercised over selecting political  leaders rather than logos.    ���. ;,  "Well,   who's  going  to  win,  ��� Ray?-" ,.-.������ .......   ,.:i-.-:  "Either Vickers or Bob," said,  Skelly without hesitation.      ..������.,  "Bob who?" V  "Brother Bob." M  "I was thinking of the:  Liberals/' I said; I mean here yvas  our man from, Ottawa.-,;.,      -v,^  '���Qh^ those guys," said Skelly,,-,,  "No doubt about .it at a\l It's'  Turner -all the way, always-has:  been. The rest is just so much,  hype."  "Well, what about the provincial NDP, then?" I asked since j,  that was obviously where his in-,  terest lay. Mine, too for that matter.  "It does look good for Bob,",  said our MP.  "We're in third place right now  and we expect to pick up most of  the votes as people drop off the  ballot. If we can manage to get into ',  second place near the end we'll  take it. We're pretty sure that most  of King's support would come over  to us if it came down to it."  Quite frankly I put it down to,  fraternal loyalty. I thought Ray's  considerable judgement had been  clouded in the matter.  I had tended to dismiss Bob  Skelly's chances, to that point. He  and- Dave Stupich, travelling  separately from the other can- .  didates, had visited the riding early  in the campaign. They both gave  conscientious statements of position but the sparse turnout and the  fact that the campaign hadn't really got started yet left a generally  luke-warm impression of both candidates in my mind.  fhe NOP  i,1  Sp there I was on Sunday,  sneaking away from . production  day at the Coast News and watching the NDP leadership convention live on the CBC TV.  They were announcing the  results of the second vote when i  tuned in. Graham Lea, whom I  long ago tipped as a dark horse  candidate, was first man defeated.  The gallant and impressive  Margaret Birrell had just become  the second candidate out.  The significant thing seemed to  ' be that the Skelly campaign was  ecstatic though at that point they  were,a long way back in third, and  just narrowly ahead of* Dave  Stupich. It seemed that they had  got a much larger portion of the  dispersed Lea vote than they had  anticipated. They were confident  abou} getting the most of the loyal  Birrell vote and were talking about  making their move.  Ray Skelly was interviewed .on  television and basically repeated  the same observations that he had  made in the Coast News office nine  days earlier. He did seem  noticeably more buoyant and confident however.  Stupich went on the next ballot  and his support divided pretty  evenly among the top three. King  did well but Skelly, who'd slipped  into second place with the expected  switch to him of the Margaret Birrell. fans, had enough Vancouver  Island loyalty to retain second  place.  Vickers, however, who at that  point had led on every ballot, and  was increasing his vote total on  every new count, still led by 35  votes.  He increased the lead to 50 votes  on the second last ballot and Bill  King dropped off. At that point  King commanded 30 per cent of  the voting strength and between  the last two ballots the rumoured  ABC movement became a surface  factor for. the. first time. ABC  -Anybpdy But the Cocke machine.  King made public his. intention  to throw, support behind Skelly.  Vickers' greatest handicap was  also his greatest strength. The  organizational skills of Dennis and  Yvonne Cocke were behind him.  This ensured him of a first class  campaign but put him at odds with,,  a general feeling in the party that^  the establishment which had losf,  three consecutive, elections needed/  to be taught their choice was not an*;  automatic one.  When the last announcement  came it was as though the Skellys  had written the script. sm  "   "��� "   - ' . iif  The Sower's  Song  Now hands to seedsheet, bpysl_.

Thomas Carlyle  \  *  'i  o  '  Maryanne's viewpoint  ��Jm  Let's define  The concern of Sechelt elementary school to involve the community at large in the evaluation  and planning of education has  brought into focus something we  often overlook: that in any given  context words may mean different  things to different people.  The school is a very friendly and  open place * where parents and  visitors are always welcome, so it  may have come as a surprise both  to principal and staff when a possible area of .misunderstanding appeared before them. One of the  comments from parents at an  earlier meeting had concerned  "discipline" and "respect" and  the staff reaction was one of im- /  mediate concern because they  didn't know just what the word  "discipline" meant to those un- "  named parents.  I can remember when there were s  more than 40 children in elercen- .'  tary classes, (often split grades) sit- ;  ting in rows at desks which were ���'  nailed to the floor. Once class was ,  in session no child spoke or got out  of their desk without recognition  of their raised hand and permission  from the teacher.  They copies endless exercises  laboriously from the blackboard  and, as there were few reference  books available, had to rely on  texts, most of which were out of  date, prepared in the east or the  U.S. Children, both boys and girls  who didn't conform to the strict  discipline were sent to the principal  and often strapped.  I'm sure that parents do not  want to go back to those days when  education was seen as an assembly  line process of filling empty heads  with a required amount of basic  knowledge.    '    '    -   '  Today's educators and child  psychologists look upon children  as individuals, each with his/her  aptitudes, character and talents,  and their job is to provide encouragement and an environment  in which these talents can reach  their potential.  What may appear to a casual  visitor to a classroom as activity  verging on chaos, with several different     things     going     on  simultaneously, is possible only  because the children have achieved  some measure of self-discipline,  tolerance and consideration for  others. The teacher will gradually  give them more freedom as they  prove their ability to handle it and  take responsibility rather than just  responding like robots.  So you say, there are lots of people around who have successful  careers and lead satisfactory lives  who went through those strict and  in many ways educationally limited  classrooms. That is of course true,  my own children are, among them,  but I doubt that arguing the pros  and cons will prove anything.  What seems to me irrefutable is  that the world is a very different  place for today's children. -  Yesterday's children lived for the  most part in a relatively secure  world, one of traditionally shared  values. No war clouds of annihilation were on the horizon and grew  up with some assurance of work in  forestry, fishing, a variety of trades  and professions with new opportunities opening up everywhere.  Today's child may at a very early'.;  age become aware of the anxieties;'  and insecurities of our society and;  be already troubled and hurting'1  before he is of school age. We,  know that the, anxieties of our!,  world accompany our children to'  school.

It is unfor-  late that you and your many coi-  l|agues could not join us this year;  "laps next year.  ���With reference to your message,  were particularly interested in  ir belief that "it is of vital im-  "rtance   that   we   continue  tb>.,make our  views  known  toy  dMiers". Also of interest is the mo  tion introduced by your government which "urges al! world  "governments 'to increase their efforts to end the nuclear arms race  and to reduce and finally eliminate  all nuclear weaponry".  As you may or may not be  aware, the Sunshine Coast Peace  Committee has attempted to  achieve both of the above goals,  only to be thwarted by your  ministry of transportation and  highways. A brief -summary of  events is attached..       M  In light of your stand on nuclear  disarmament and the peace movement as so clearly stated in your  address to the Peace Walk Rally,  we are confident that you understand the significance of the symbolic gesture of declaring one's  area a nuclear free zone and will  grant us the right to make the one  token gesture that we, as citizens,  can make to the rest of the  world���a sigh at each of the two  ferry terminals that designates this  area a nuclear free zone and makes  our position On the nuclear  madness clear���that we will not  take part in itv  It has been a year now since the  regional board unanimously  declared the Sunshine Coast a  Nuclear Free.

'.There was a van from Secheit  that was transporting oxygen and  acetylene bottles in a laid-down  {Position covered up with a blanket.  These are considered dangerous  cargo and are strictly forbidden on  the ferry.  ^ Secondly, when transported they  i^ust be in an upright position.  When I became aware of this I  decided to See the captain. Captain  Ian McKinnon didn't seem in-  not allowed as they were just as  dangerous full or empty we got into an argument.  I was intimidated about my age,  then he said it was the RCMP's  problem not his. If this was the  case, I suggested, then the RCMP  should be on the ferry full time. I  was then asked to leave the  wheelhouse.       ,  Sitting in my truck waiting for  the ferry to dock I watched a man  throw a cigarette out his window. I  thought of potential bombs that  terested but said he would,Ipok into it.  .  The next morning on the 6:25  ferry I went to see what had happened! I was greeted rudely by the  captain and when I asked him what  had happened he . replied:  "Nothing at all has been done."  Merchants thanked  Editor, M\   ..

Debbie Sneddon  vM-mM: Co-ordinator  School to be lost  _ditor:  I The parents are stunned.  | To eliminate the salary of one  tfacher our school is being closed  at the end of this school year. Our  small children will be bussed over  4|) km over-mountainous roads to  school each day. The entire com-  ifunity will suffer.  I The "Save Our School Committee" has met with the school  board, our MLA and had cor-  rgspopdence with the minister of  education to try to prevent this  cision. Even now we cannot give  the struggle. It is obvious that  cannot "make enough noise"  :ally. It is time to join with  Ihers in the province who are fac-  |g similar problems.  I Have   the   education   budget  strictions in your school district  [-ought about cut backs that are  threatening your child's welfare?  Are local school closures taking  your children many miles to find  "local" education? Will the loss of  such schools take away the very  heart of your community? Will the  coming years of' restraint bring  more school closures? Is a local  school something that someone  can take away, or is it yours to  keep and protect as a Canadian!  What can we do to reverse these  devastating decisions?  We need to hear from anyone  who suffers similar cuts, from  anyone who shares our concern for  the future of education in our province. Is it time now for the SOS to  become a provincial organization?  Please contact:  E'.E.  Beckert, >  Secretary, Save Our School Com- i  mittee, Box 94, Avola, B.C.

J Sue welcomed 16 members to  the meeting, plus Cathy Baxter,  head nurse and Carol Bishop, activity co-6rdinator. Also, we were  py to 'welcome .two new  embers, Margaret Berry and  Isabelle Richardson.  Items already made for our  bazaar in early November were on  display, including a selection pf  Cabbage Patch dolls' clothes.  Plans are underway to make many  more outfits for these dolls.  ' The various committees made  their reports, and then Qirol  Bishop told us of the preparations  for the resident's bazaar which will  bji'held on June 16. She asked for  volunteers to assist in running this-'  bazaar.  . Then Cathy Baxter made a request that the auxiliary consider  the purchase of a large-size  ecologizer for the lounge. It was  voted that the auxiliary purchase  one as soon as. possible.  Plans were discussed for the \  Berry Tea to be held later in the  summer. It was decided to have the  final meeting for the season as- a  dinner, meeting at the Gypsy  restaurant. This must be paid fpr in  advance, and interested members  whp were not present at the  meeting can contact Judy at Goddard's store. The dinner meeting,  will start at 6:30 p.m. for a 7 p.m.  dinner.

M ,We trust that you will give our.  S "concern your immediate attention  Mand that the year-old resolution  will be enacted and the Sunshine  M Coast will indeed be a nuclear free  X zone before the month of May is  .out.  Carol McGillivray, for:  Sunshine Coast Peace Committee  I feel it is pretty irresponsible of  the ferry corporation to let incidents like that happen and to  simply ignore them, especially  when people's lives are in danger.  We pay outrageous prices and  get a ridiculous schedule. At least  they could make the damn ferry  safe. I guess you have to get hit  walking down a road before they  build a sidewalk.  Clint Suveges  Editor:  I must strongly object to the Pro  Life Society's ad which appeared in  last week's paper. Actually, it's not  the ad so much as the photo. It  showed a very ..human-looking  fetus of 19 weeks;  .Considering most abortions are  performed within 12 weeks of conception this can only be viewed, at  its best, as sensationalism and at its  worst, as blatant psychological  abuse. Not a very Christian thing  to do, is it?  I could have accompanied this  letter with a photograph of the corpse of a battered child, but at least  I've got some taste.

Although the morale of the people  of this province is at an all time  low, I see no reason for our  ; government to further corrupt our  society;  It has been brought to my atteri-  : tion by the Nelson Daily News article of Friday, November 25,-1083,  that the B.C. government have  decided they cannot afford to reforest in this province, and due to  all the haggling the Socreds have  done with the federal government,  the $52 million allocated to B.C.  may now go to better organized  groups, such as ��� high-tech in-!  dustriijs or other federal ministries.  Ncfw the people in the forest industry will lose many jobs for  decades to come.  I also feel that taking away $50  per month from the handicapped  persons of this province is most demeaning.  Closing the office of the Human  Rights and the Rentalsman is also a  very grave affront to the citizens of  the province.

The occasion was Mother's Day  and the event was the first annual  Roberts Creek Firemen's Open.  Nine foursomes of firefighters  and their spouses teed off in the  light morning drizzle and despite  some severe handicaps they all survived the water hazards, sandtraps  and their partner's bad tempers.  (Kay Goodwin had warned of  Alex's sharp tongue but it was his  sharp plus-fours that got  everybody's attention.)  Merrilee Mulligan managed to  surmount all of Andy Dube's advice and Pam Knowles discovered  you really don't need to drag all  those clubs around, one will do.  The only real casualty of the day  was Bruce Puchalski's golfball.  Apparently he's got a mean slice  and chopped the top off the ball.  Despite the fact that most bf ���  group were real duffers, everybody,  enjoyed the ") tournament  thoroughly and several decided  they'd like to go out again.

PHARMASAVE  SUNNYCREST  &1BSONS, B.O.  by George Cooper, 886-8520  NANCY LESLIE, Ph.D.  Marjorie Leslie, who is retired  from her work in Gibsons post office, has just received word that her  daughter, Nancy, has completed  her studies in Applied.Linguistics  at . the University of London  (England) and now has a PhD  degree.  : Many in Gibsons will remember  Nancy from her school days here.  When she finished grade nine in  Elphinstone, Nancy took grades 10  and 11 in Briererest, a Bible In-  situte in Saskatchewan. She. returned to B.C. for a degree in Education (P.Ed) in Vancouver at UBC.  Answering an ad offering student exchange studies in Japan,  Nancy was accepted and became as  a result not only a linguist but a  world traveller. She travelled east,  for instance, to get to Japan and  while in Turkey, on her way, met  her futqre husband, Nuri Yildiz,  whom she married a few years  later. On her travels Nancy has  crossed Siberia by rail, and visited  most of the European countries  and the Mid-East. She reported her  travels in the Coast News under the  editorship of Fred Cruice.  In her two years at Keio University in Tokyo, Nancy became  fluent in Japanese, and since then  has mastered Turkish and some  Chinese. When she embarked on a  M.Ed programme at UBC, she  chose English as a second language  and reading instruction. This led  quite naturally to a teaching post at  Langara College in reading instruc-  .'. tion';:-.While there, her duties extended into the administrative; particularly ih personnel work. Now  with her Ph.D Nancy is looking  further afield for other opportunities in the academic world. Chit may be further travel-���she has  New Zealand, Australia, and  China still to visit.  Marj Leslie hopes that she can  attend the degree -awarding ���  ceremony in London when  Princess Anne will'.-. officiate as  chancellor. That is if Nancy takes  the time to attend.

The Benefit Dance was a great  success and the generosity of-all  those who contributed at the door  and those who contributed to the  running of the dance must not go  unmentioned.  A big thanks to the community  club for donating the hall, to Norm  Jones and the Benefit Band, to  Oak Tree Market who were so  generous, to Taylor's Store for all  the mixer, the IGA for lots of help  and even a spirited donation from  Peninsula Transport (I'll use 'em!)  Last but not least says Wilma  Thompson (who must also be  thanked) is thank you to Garden  Bay Firehall who cleaned up after  the dance. (Of course the few -who  did it and Sirnone deserve all the  thanks!)  To anyone who was not mentioned, you know who you are and  you should give yourself a pat.

Another frontal  system moving into the B.C. coast  will bring more showers. That's the  weather report from a newspaper'  dated February 14. My neighbours  from the city come to their cabin  on most long weekends, on Friday  I play the good neighbour role and  keep a fire going in their air tight  heater so their cabin will be cozy  when they arrive. While tending  their fire I, browse through all the  old newspapers. I automatically  read the weather report first. It's  right on.  I didn't realize how much I missed newspapers until the cabin was  getting too warm and I'd browsed  through a month's news.  Ethel Merman died. I thought  too bad, Broadway will never be  the same. Maybe Broadway  "isn't" anymore.  Wolf hunter Paul Watson says  he lost a battle but the war has just  begun.  The Red Cross needs $5.9  million for the Expo '86 project.  Princess Diana is holding her  own. She continues to prefer liking  people especially children, while  married into a. family of animal  .lovers, especially dogs and horses.  A Vietnam veteran armed, with  night vision capabilities on rifles  plus sensors to detect any movement 300 metres away plans on  hunting and killing a SaSquatch,  preferably American but a Canadian Sasquatch will do.  That's the news from out there.  Locally it's a disappointing day.  Today is Madeira Park May Day  Parade and it's raining and blowing. There are white caps on the  lake. That's more than a breeze out  there.  BEARS  Egmont has a bear or bears  visiting. One left a calling card in  the school yard, snuffled around a  couple of houses maybe checking  for pet food or garbage left out.  They are not people shy but do remind your children that bears are  still wild animals and if they meet  up with one they should hot foot it  the other way.  ECCENTRIC ROBIN  Robins seem to like people, for  all the thousands of beautiful trees  a robin has built a nest on the top  of a metal ladder leaning on a tree!  There's no over-head shelter like  the eaves of a building. It's close to  the cabin on a trail used every day.  There's a cat named Mousetrap  that lives there. I hope he can't  climb metal ladders.  TEA AND THRIFT  Karlene had another successful  tea last week. It's nice to see  women grid children getting  together. Kristina. and Marie our  two young ladies in Egmont waited  on the tables and Joseph manned  the kitchen, cooking and washing  dishes. Joseph, I think you have  found your "calling".  There's still a lot of work to be  done now the Thrift Store has been  moved downstairs: sorting;  folding; cutting rags; setting up  racks to hang clothes. Volunteer  help is always welcome. Donations  of clothes hangers is top of the list.  Any donations for the Thrift  Store can be dropped of f at the hall  door as everyday someone checks  and puts donations inside.  BIRTHDAY & ADVICE  Happy Birthday to Brenda Martin. This is Brenda's year to buckle  up and drive. Brenda's mother lived with us in North Van when she  was a teenager and learned to  drive. Our advice to her when she  was allowed the family car for the  first time was "don't drive the road  to Horseshoe Bay". That was the  old road with many sharp turns.  Guess where she went. So no advice Brenda, just good luck!  Good Grantham's water  by Bert Norman  Halfmoon Bay Happenings  * The immersion pump-has been  operating in the new pump house  at Grantham's for nearly a year  without problems.  Within a few months a whole  new system of signalling will be installed, which will monitor the  operation ,  The water supply is plentiful.  ,>Ve have no restrictions on sprinkl-M^  ing and are very fortunate to have****5  water that tests 100 per cent pure   .  with no additives such as chlorine,  f  Along with the plentiful supply  of good water the citizens of Granthams Landing have the benefit of  good fire protection. We are accessible from three directions,  there are no deadend streets, the  fire department has the use of six  inch fire hydrants for a greater part  of the area, plus a 25,000 gallon in-  ground resevoir, a backup tank of  10,000 gallons plus 7,000 gallons in  the new pump house tank.:,,.-.  School's future in doubt  by Ruth Forrester, 885-2318  PARENTS MEET  The Halfmoon-'Bay school was  packed with parents on Monday  evening for a meeting with school  board trustees. Mr. John  Nicholson.wasthe main speaker,  j The topic was the future of the  school and the effect of the cut  back of vfitiids available for addi-  j|tions to the school building. At the  jM present tirne the grade three pupils  |^ ar�� ^ten|UhgM*Vest Sechelt school  ^ which his the facilities to ac-  comodat||them, and the parents  fer to have their children  *,lcept wl&iin the Halfmoon Bay  ;M': "��� ���        A'i">   ' ' ���������;.'-  ?v:^rea.  -M ���������-.���     ., -    .  fe;.; The proposal was made that a  lv portable building could be located  ~Mby the school and another full time  p teacher added to the present staff  feof  $ would  ir '  one full and one. part time  teacher. Mr Nicholson will take  this proposal to the board as the  preference of the parents.  .  An alternative to this proposal  would be to keep the kindergarten  and grade one pupils at the present  facility with the present staff. Mr.  Nicholson was most sympathetic  with the concerns of the parents  present but pointed out that all he  could promise was that he would  take their proposals to the board  for their consideration.  A spokesman for the parents requested that they be informed  before the school year-end as to the  outcome of this meeting in order  that their children will know what  is in store when school starts up in  the fall.  HOSPITAL TOUR        '  The kindergarten children made  a visit to St. Mary's Hospital last  week and were treated to a most interesting tour of the hospital. It  was ���a. fascinatingMjvCnt for; the  children who were even allowed to  administer injections on a teddy  bear.  They are looking forward to  another interesting tour - this time  it will be to Shop Easy in Trail Bay  Centre where.they will be shown  what goes on behind the scenes in  the meat, bakery and other departments.  COUNTRY FAIR  Things are really looking good  the the Country Fair of Halfmoon  Bay on July 21 at Connor Park. I  made mention last week of some of  the groups who will be attending to  entertain you.  In keeping with the Robin Hood  , theme you will enjoy watching the  ancient art of jousting. In my ignorance of such matters I took it  for granted that such a group  would have to be imported from  the mainland.. Not so! We have  such a group right here in our own  backyard who will put oh as good a  show as anyone from the big city.  They are known as the White  Tower Medieval Society located in  Gibsons. I gather that they will  have to transport horses and armour and all the weapons required  for such a performance and don't  quite know how they go about it.  But you can bet your life that we  will all be looking forward to this  attraction as most of us have only  seen such spectacles in the movies.  ' If you are like myself and did  not know of this group from Gibsons you will now be able to look  forward to seeing them in action at  Connor Park.

This  is, without a doubt, one of the most beautiful spots on earth.  It was in May of 1970 that my family and I first came to the  Sunshine Coast. As I have said, "Why hadn't anyone told me  of this place before?"  To be self-supporting, a community needs industry to provide jobs and to afford the infra-structure of all the various  services and supplies necessary for the needs of people. I can  think of no better, no cleaner industry than tourism.  I cam state emphatically that in ail the years we have been  in business we have never earned a profit in the winter months.

The lively commentary, written and moderated by Bonnie  Paetkau of Cactus Flower, kept  everyone laughing while they sipped wine and nibbled delicacies.  "The audience really felt  delighted she referred to all'these  local places that we knew,"  remarked Debbie Clipperton, PTA  member. The audience was advised  to attend a luncheon meeting at  Pebbles wearing this, dance at the  Jolly Roger wearing that:  One watcher exclaimed .she  didn't know you- could get such  nice clothes in Sechelt. Another  said she saw how a few fashionable  accessories can update an old  ���.dress.

These outfits were then  written into a script that was punctuated by a numberof jokes.  Among the models were three  very young children and three men,  teachers. Ron Bunting and Mike  Metcalfe, and the oVvner of the  Wakefield Inn, Rick Radymski.  Katy Radymski, four, was very  natural on stage, wearing a blue  tartan skirt and vest with matching  blouse and bag. Alone, she waltzed  down the runway smoothly, turned  and posed and then after her return  walk* just before she left the stage,  she turned and posed again. The  100 pairs of eyes watching her  beamed their delight at her,  because she did all this without  coaching.  The crowd burst into laughter  when three-year old Christopher  Clipperton unexpectedly tipped his  red baseball hat at everyone.  Prizes were donated by the  Wharf Restaurant, Jolly Roger,  Ann-Lynn Flowers, Sechelt Collision, Headquarters, Milore  Nursery and Ava Care Facials.

As we drive back to ��� the  village, we ask questions^ of the  tow-truck man about the Canyon.  He tells us that a suicide note was  found in one of the hotel rooms  this very morning. Apparently, the  helicopter I had seen was not carrying sightseers it vyas searching for a  possible jumper. 1 think of those  yawning gulfs and shudder. Still, if  a man was bound to put an end to  himself, he could hardly choose a  more-spectacular, setting.  "Six people have gone over  . already this year," the driver adds  matter-of-factly. "Mostly it's accidental though - young wiseguys  showing off for their girlfriends  and clowing around too close to  the edgel A couple of them were  lucky and landed on ledges."  There is a watchtower at the  eastern mouth of the Canyon from  which the Painted. Desert can  reportedly be viewed. We have lost  too much time over the breakdown  however to take this circuitous  route and opt for a quicker egress  back across the plateau. After a  few miles, we begin heading  downhill again, out of the high  country. Passing through the fair-  sized city of Flagstaff, we head out  across another long stretch of dusty flatland. , Unlike the desolate  Mojave however, this area is spot-  tily populated with small, dry  towns every few miles and threadbare, marginal farms. Adobe  pueblos are frequently to be seen  now, some of -them gutted and  abandoned. By late afternoon, we  enter the fringes of mesa country  -great, windtorn tablelands that  thrust upwards from the waterless  plains.  The shadows begin to lengthen  across eastern Arizona and Yvonne  guns the Aspen through the last  miles of the state. We ���hope to  reach GaUup, NewMfylexico by  nightfall. Near the boirder, we pass  through a large Indian Reserve  advertising taxless; gas; arid cigarettes. Then we are oyer the New  Mexico line and galloping towards  Gallup. M  Great flashes of light explode  beyond the city as we make our approach. I think of the U.S. Army  testing deadly new weapons in the'  desert. But it proves to be only a  dry thunderstorm.   ;  Gallup is the largest city we have  hit since'Los Angeles. It is'our  refuge for the. night after a long,  eventful day. We find lodgings and  then have supper at sj. Mexican cafe  where the salsa is hot enough to  raise blisters on the tongues of unsuspecting gringoes.'j  September 17, 1982. Today  Yvonne wants to try to make it  through to Dodge City, Kansas.  This will be another slightly  frivolous side trip but the famous  old cowtown is along our general  route. It is over 600 miles from  Gallup however, the longest single-  day run we have attempted yet.  Once more we leave at. crack of  dawn. '  We are in red mesa country now  great, ruddy butt��s castle the  flatland. After about 100 miles, we  stop off. for breakfast at a  Stuckey's Cafe, a cut-rate chain  connected with various gas stations. The food is edible but it is  served on plastic plates with plastic  knives and forks and margarine instead of butter. No self-respecting  trucker would be ("aught dead  parking his rig outside such a cheap  establishment. Yvonne and 1  resolve to bypass such places in the  future.  For week of May 21-28.  ARIES (March 20-April 18)  A recent new cycle for social interactions with those nearby  becomes more active. It's a busy  time for correspondence and short  trips.

Your health suffers  when you over consume now,  moderation is the key. ,  LEO (July 22-Aug. 22)  Monday's argumentative trends  between home and business matters are best handled by spending  the day away from both, perhaps  fishing in a remote area. Harmony  flows the rest of the week. Use the  lucky trends to promote your  status and business ideas.  VIRGO (Aug. 22-Sept. 21)  Your public status shines during  this new cycle and an absent friend  returns. Your spouse finds you irresistible this week.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 21-Feb. 18)  During this cycle your  playfulness and creative outlets are  highlighted but so are losses  through gambling mid-week.

Some careful plan-  i ning can provide exquisite scents,  l rhany of which are most noticeable  I at night!  t i Many of the flowers with night  * time scents are nondescript during  I; the daylight hours; colours are not  X- 'necessary at night and white  ) flowers show up best at dusk or in  i the moonlight. The tuberose is an  ' old-fashioned flower, whose perfume is much stronger at dusk;  others are Ten-week stocks and  .pinks. These flowers, pretty and  -.tsweet during daylight are even  &f spicier at night, as are carnations.  Bjfhe night-scented stock is a small  ^ordinary flower that comes into its  jiown after dark; its blossoms open  r^&nd a sweet, strong perfume is  ^released. To keep this fragrance in  ?:|flie   garden   plant   successively,  II about every 10 days.  :J" The white nicotiana also keeps  gits sweetness for the evening, and is  ^Very hardy, blooming well in partial shade.  ^j. Another lovely blossom is the  ���"|Hesperis, or Sweet Rocket. It is  learned for the evening star and was  f||aid to be a favourite of Marie Antoinette. It looks pretty during the  qdaylight hours, and has a some- A  tffihal lemony smell, which becomes  |js>eeter' and more like that of the  gs^tock once dusk falls. .-   ���  Some   flowers   have   elusive  $  i fragrances,  ���delightful  hard  to  follow  but  nonetheless.   The  Daphne   Launesla   has   such   a  flower, as does the Witch Hazel.  There are many other night time  flowers, often denoted in their  names by the inclusion of the word  "tristi". This indicates its sad, dull  blossoms of daytime. Gladislus  tristis, a native of South Africa,  grows in swampy areas and is very  fragrant at dark. There is a  pelargonium tristis with dull  flowers that cast a-lovely scent at  night; these are suitable for growing indoors.  Many other flowers lay heaviest  on the air at dusk; honeysuckle,  the popular sweet pea, and several  members of the clematis family  have such blossoms. Clematis  paniculata has a nyaiad creamy  coloured flowers with a strong  vanilla like perfume; the clematis  vitalba has small greenish, white  flowers and smells like sweet  almonds.  Make   sure   you   plant   your  fragrant flowers along pathways  and by the house. If you have a  deck or patio include some night  scented flowers in your planter  boxes;  let   fragrant  vines  climb  around the windows you  leave  open in summer. An hour or two  spent relaxing in a fragrant twlight  is a soothing antidote to the cares  and worries of the daylight hours.

District manager for Coast  Cable, Carl Bobardt, said that to  date there has been a good  response from Sunshine Coast  residents, and said he hopes to get  still more signatures and letters  petitioning against the licence  before the deadline, May 30.  The signals on Channels 9 and  11 are already low, according to  Bobardt, and if the transmitter is  erected it would certainly have an  adverse effect; probably the total  loss of both channels.

Our  Town  parties. They are just great. We are  all pretty careful about glass. If someone breaks a bottle, he gets  booed by the others. We put our  bottles away and leave them there.  If the police come down, they  take our boozeaway and things die  down. But the next day there's  more booze again. It's no big deal.  "The only trouble with a beach  party is that fights can happen  more easily because all kinds of  people get together, people from  outside of Gibsons.  "If I had a chance to change the  ,,. way things have happened to me in  the past, I wouldn't change a  thing. I like to party, it's too much  fun.you get to talk to everybody,  to go from place to place and to  meet people. You're lucky if you  can get two parties in a week. We  don't really party during the  weekdays, only on Thursday, Friday or Saturday night.  "Friends look after each other.  At one time my friends thought I  ; was drinking too much although  booking back I don't think I was.  ?"Fhey told me to take it easy and to  vsettle down. I would do the same  for anyone of my friends if I felt  they were drinking too much."  These comments came from  another young resident of our  town:  "I've got to drink. I need my  booze. My dad is an alcoholic. He  never talks to me. He hasn't  spoken to me in years except to call  me names. I'd like to get away  from home.   >  "I've been drinking since I was  six years old. To get money for  booze, I steal, I do B&Es to get  money to get booze. I don't have  any money because I don't have a  job. There's no work around here.,  "Sometimes I think about killing myself. Yes, I've thought about  it seriously. My life is hell and it  keeps getting worse."  We would appreciate receiving  your comments on the subject of  alcohol abuse or on any of the subjects we have already discussed in  the column Our Town. Please  write, Our Town, Box 460, Gibsons, B.C.  ��� Next week, we will publish an  open letter to parents written by a  policeman on the subject of drinking amongst teenagers. It's a letter  that has been published in many  newspapers across the country but  can never be published too often.  Hospital  delegation  Five representatives from St.  Mary's Hospital joined over 400  delegates from all areas of the province at th B.C. Health Association  Annual Meeting and Conference  held in Vancouver recently (May  2-3).  Those attending from our area  included: Mr. G. Lewall, chairman  of the hospital board; Mrs. J.  Sorko, vice chairman; Mr. G.  Craig, trustee; Mrs. J. Malnarick,  trustee; and Ms H. Home, trustee.  The B.C. Health Association  represents the interests of all public  hospitals and many long term  facilities.  This vital meeting of provincial  delegates dealt with a number of  resolutions of social concern: raising the legal drinking age from 19  to 21 years of age; exemption of  child safety car seats from federal  sales tax; eliminating the sale of  tobacco products on the premises  of health care institutions; standardized provincial telephone system  for ambulance services.  The delegates requested the B.C.  Health Association to urge the provincial and/or federal governments .  to implement these recommendations.  Young People and Alcohol'  Part II  Here are the comments of a  young resident of our town on the  subject of drinking:  "You often hear people say that  there is nothing for young people  to do in this town and that is the  reason why they drink. That's not  true. If you were to open the gym  and make it available to young  people as an alternative to going to  parties and drinking, not many of  them would go to the gym.  "They drink because they want  to. There's no pressure to make  any of us drink. We do it because  we want to, because it's fun to go  to parties. I drink because I want  to. No one is making me drink.  "Many of us work and after the  work is done, we just want to go  out, drink and relax. Society has  allowed drinking into our lives, not  like grass. or other drugs.  "I consider myself quite responsible, quite a party person. My  parents have allowed me to drink  since I was 17. The only advice they  gave me was to take it easy and I  have. I often drive everyone home  and I'm very careful.   :  "Dealing with the police is a  rush, like a game. They are pretty  fair. If they catch you with booze  and you're under age, they just  take it away from you. They don't  hassle you if you're not rude or  don't behave like an asshole.  "Getting booze is a game. Many  try to get if from the liquor store if  they can pass for 19. I did and got  away with it. But 1 did get caught  with alcohol and got charged for  being a minor in possession.  "Sometimes the police give you  a warning, sometimes they take the  booze away, sometimes they  charge you. You have to respect  them and they respect you. I think  the police are very fair.  "The younger kids just drink to  get drunk. They think it's fun but  after a few times, it changes and  they realize that it's not all that  great.  "There are less parties than  before, nowadays, because the parties got too rowdy, caused too-  much damage and there were too  many fights. The damage was  often accidental, caused by people  falling down drunk and breaking  things.  "That's why we prefer beach  S.C.R.D.

This Tennis Canada approved programme is designed to  bring high-quality tennis instruction to children and teens on public  park courts in smaller communities. The specific Sunshine  Coast sites this July will be Hackett  Park in Sechelt, Pender Harbour  secondary school, and Egmont  elementary school.  The Pepsi-Cola and Wilson Corporations have sponsored the  minor tennis league since, 1977.  Each year they' provide promotional materials plus tennis rac-  ' quets and balls for each site. In addition, ail participants receive free  Pepsis, Wilson T-shirts, prizes, and  badges to help make their tennis  experiences as enjoyable as possible.  Tennis Canada views the Pepsi-  Wilson Minor Tennis League as  fundamental to its grassroots programming. The league is the base  from which Tennis Canada plans  to develop an increased number of  world-class players to represent our  country internationally. As  children are introduced to the  game in public parks, it is hoped  that many will continue in school  and club programmes, later advancing to provincial  and national  levels of competition.  Participation, enjoyment, and  quality instruction are key elements  ' of the Pepsi-Wilson Minor Tennis  League. Forehand, backhandj  serve, and volley are introduced  and then drilled in games and  friendly competitions. Basic rules,  scoring, and court etiquette are  also discussed. Later, in another  exciting phase, participants have  the opportunity to take part in the  Tennis Canada Performance  Award Scheme. This series of tests  shows how far they have progressed in comparison with other young  players across Canada.  The Pepsi-Wilson Minor Tennis  League is part of a full series of  adult and junior lessons offered by  Ron Knight and Brian Dennehy of  the Sunshine Coast Summer Tennis Programme. Both coaches are  certified tennis instructors who  have previously taught at the YM-  CA as well as in club and school  programmes. Pender Harbour  residents will remember Ron  Knight from last summer's very  successful tennis programme in  that area.  Registration forms for the Pepsi-  Wilson Minor Tennis League and  adult lessons are available in  schools, at Trail Bay Sports ih  Sechelt, and at the Oak Tree  Market in Madeira Park.  Sechelt arena to get  its floor poured  The Sechelt arena, concrete flodr  pouring project is so interesting,  Sechelt alderman Graham Craig  said, he was seriously thinking Of ���  opening the lounge and bar to the '  public and selling tickets to view  the event..Another alderman added that the Cable 10 crew could  film it.  Mr. Craig announced that  preliminary work for pouring the;  approximately $70,000 concrete  floor is expected to begin this-  week, He requested people serving  community service court sentences  do the "bull work of removing the.  present-sand floor".     'a-:\'x��XM  The.remaining project required  special   monitoring   by   profeH  sionals, he said, and would be best I  carried out by them rather than  volunteer labour. Craig added that  the consulting firm would prepare  a concrete formula, chemically  balanced for this location and purpose.  When the concrete was ready for  pouring, all men and equipment  from that company would devote  the day to it, more or less, shutting  down their other jobs for that  time.  Anyone wanting free sand from  the present arena floor can contact  project foreman Frank Ketter at  885-9623.  In about six weeks, the installation of the Fre heater system,  costing $10,130, should complete  the first phase.

Confidential inquiries  to Jim Belts, Quesnei Forest Products, Box 8000, Quesnei, B.C. 16.  Coast News, May 21,1984  Continued from page 1  usually had academic subjects back  to back with non-academic sub-  v jects,  so  in  reality the  "doing  both" option did not exist.  "We should keep the doors of  choice open as long as possible,"  was a commonly expressed feeling.  Much concern arose over the  shortage of math and science  teachers which would be caused  with more students taking those  subjects. Would there be funding  available to retrain existing  teachers to those specialties?  Would a Home Ec teacher have  her Home Ec class dropped and  have to each math or science instead?  "There is a finite number of  teachers to spread thin over all the  courses we have to offer," said  parent and teacher Sheila Page. "It  would be most unfair to send  students to a required course with a  teacher with no special training in  that area."  Pender Harbour principal Martin Wilson noted that it would be  impossible to offer in his small  school all the electives to enable  students to complete the three  "major" areas of study. To meet  the new requirements a number of  current electives would have to be  dropped.  "The ministry should modify  the requirements instead of forcing  schools to drop programmes," he  stated.  "Can the ministry fund Career  Preparation programmes, of which  there are none at Chatelech, as it  takes a qualified journeyman to  teach them?" queried principal  June Maynard.  "The ministry should have as its  goal the bringing together of  resources - teachers and facilities  -to do the best for their common  cause, the child," stated trustee  Brian Hodgins to audience applause.  The discussion paper recognizes  that the new requirements will  result in fewer graduates.  "This paper seems to encourage  the dropping out of those who  aren't 'fitted' to the regular school  system," said Egmont parent Mrs.  Iris Griffith. "If we're making a  decision to chuck a few overboard,  then we'd better make provisions  for them. If we're going to encourage them to stay, we need to  give them a bit more encouragement than Math and Science 11."  Only one person spoke in favour  of the proposed new requirements,  noting that the current graduation  certificate is worthless in identifying for an employer or institution  the level of competency attained by  a student, and a "major" area of  study indicated on a graduation  certificate would assist' in defining  a level of achievement.  "The idea that everyone should  gradulate is ridiculous," he stated.  "Students have to compete in the  real world, and the changes  recognize reality where the present  system doesn't.  "With cuts in funding, fewer  teachers and larger classes, why are  Tomkies  resigns  by Lynn Lindsay  The chairman of the Expoasis  promotion committee, Richard  Tomkies, resigned last week for  reasons which he described as  rather complex.  Tomkies told the Coast News  that he doesn't have time to do the  job.  "It seems to be a trend within  the committee that anybody who  takes a position, expends more  energy defending it," he said.  Referring to his presentation of  the Expoasis logo, designed by  Vancouver graphic artist, Charles  ' Mayr, Tomkies said he had not expected any opposition from the  committee.  "I was asked to produce a logo,  and I did," said Tomkies, "it was a  . professional job."  Local graphic artist, Paul  Herbermann, said he was invited to  the Expo meeting at which Mayr's  logo was presented.  "I could see that most people  weren't too impressed with the  logo, and it seemed the consensus  was that a decision had not been  reached. If I hadn't thought it was  still open I wouldn't have spent  three weeks between meetings  designing an alternate logo  myself," said Herbermann.  Consequently, Herbermann and  three other delegates presented  logos at the last Expo meeting.  Tomkies told the Coast News, it  was the final evidence that the  committee spends twice the time on  counter-productive acitivities.  "We don't have time to go  slow," and he added that past  chairman, Stan Anderson, resigned  for much the same reasons.  The matter of deciding which  logo will be used for Expoasis, will  be left to the board of directors of  the Sunshine Coast Tourist  Associationwho have just recently  amalgamated with the Expo '86  committee.  we trying to hard to keep people in  school if they don't want to be  there?"  In a brief from the Sunshine  Coast Teachers' Association the  following questions were posed:  "In 1982 the Ministry of Education stated that there would be a  new School Act and a mandate for  education. What is that mandate? .  Does one exist? How can a set of .  requirements for graduation from  grade 12 be discussed outside of a  framework of goals and a  philosophy? What values and goals  does this new curriculum (for surely that's what this is) attempt to  build?"  The brief went on to note concerns about the implications for  Native Indian children, who would  be generally streamed away from  the Arts"and Sciences programmes;  universities making entrance requirements more stringent and accepting   Arts   and   Science   cer  tificates only; and asked "Should  all students be expected to make  important career decisions while in  the school system?"  Observing that the discussion  paper outlines a plan close to the  system that existed, in 1972, the  SCTA suggests that a Royal Commission be set up "to determine  carefully, with full ' consultation  from all parties, the direction in  which education should move. Our  technology,   work   places   and.  careers will probably not reflect a  plan or an attitude from 1972. It  will require new ideas, new concepts, new directions, and the.  government must develop a clear  mandate for the future, not the  past.  "More tests, more structure,  more restrictions, harder courses,  tougher graduation requirements  are not necessarily the answer to  the problems faced by the school  system."
