The board has long sought to acquire the property as a public park  and it is again available. A previous"  opportunity to acquire, it was  frustrated by the slowness of approval from Victoria earlier this  summer. M.  Accordingly, they whisked Mhe  minister   up   over   the   Sunshine  (Toast by helicoptjej. just before the...  ��� ^'opening, of \t'h"e;1r|^na^^'?i^m^''  mediately   gave   the   project   his  blessing.  "Your SCRD is on the right  track," said Ritchie and announced 'approval in principle' for the  project.  Please turn to page 11  Over 15 years of dreams, hopes,  '     plans and struggles culminated last  Saturday in as perfect an official  ���;    opening for the Gibsons Marina as  one could wish for.  With the sun beaming down on  the kind of brilliant, warm fall day  the Sunshine Coast is famous for,  doubling the natural beauty of the  /marina's setting, hundreds of  residents and guests strolled among  kiosks offering a selection of the  area's finest crafts and artifacts,  bobbed to the live music of local  musicians, relaxed in the newly  landscaped park areas, admired the  facilities provided for marina  users, and generally enjoyed the  hospitality of local marina prin-  ,. cipals Jon McRae and Art McGin-  X nis.  Celebrations had begun with a  .   wine and cheese party on Thursday  '"evening, and many had sailed in  Mind   were   enjoying   the    free  :    moorage provided.  Adding appropriate weight and  ; . dignity to the occasion  was the  f  genial   presence   of   minister   of.  M"municipal affairs Bill Ritchie, who  .   left no doubt in anyone's mind that  .he was thoroughly enjoying being  in the area and that he was most  impressed with the new marina in  particular and the Sunshine Coast  in general.  As master of ceremonies for the  Occasion, Jon McRae gave a brief  history of the marina's development and then called for three ribbons to be cut. Miss Gibsons, Debbie Middleton, cut the first ribbon  on behalf of the federal government, which provided $600,000 for  tjredging and breakwater costs.  :>M Ajjer an entertaining speech in  ^?Whj"$ he also announced 'approval  in principle' for the acquisition of  Cooper's Green as a regional  district park, Honourable Mr. Ritchie noted that the colour of his  ribbon was red, and it always gave  him great pleasure to cut through  red tape. With those words he snipped through the ribbon representing the provincial government's  contribution to the project of  $400,000.  Describing himself as "a very  happy man today", Gibsons  mayor, Larry Labonte cut through  the municipal ribbon representing  the town of Gibsons' contribution  of $350,000 worth of land for the  marina site.  McRae then made presentations  to Ritchie and members of Gibsons  council, and introduced the other  principals in Gibsons Marina Hotel  Incorporated, president, Arnie  Armstrong of Vancouver and  director, Frank O'Sullivan of Edmonton. The private company  financed $1.2 million of the total  $2.5 million project.  The idea of the marina in Gibsons harbour dates back at least to  the mid-1960's, when Captain  W.Y. Higgs first took soundings of  the bay to determine'how much  dredging would have to be done  and consulted on the matter with  various colleagues in Vancouver.  Then in 1968, Gibsons council  under mayor Fred Feeney had a  conceptual drawing done of Gibsons harbour, showing a causeway  leading to a man-made island on  which were several large hotels  with parking areas, from which  were hung the fingers and floats of  the marina. The council was willing  to undertake the project, but could  not manage the financing required.  The drawing now hangs in the new  marina's administration building.  In 1977 the idea of a marina  was rejuvenated by Jon McRae  when he became president of the  Gibsons and district chamber of  commerce. In 1979, after he had  been elected to the regional board,  he travelled to Ottawa with other  local officials, including then-  mayor Lorraine Goddard, to lobby  for federal support for the project.  One of the questions asked by  federal officials, who had been ig-,  noring the project, was how many  months of the year the bay was free  of ice.  Finally in 1981, a referendum  was held and the citizens of Gibsons gave their council the go-  ahead to enter into an agreement  with Gibsons Marina Hotel Incorporated for the construction of the  marina. The town had been acquiring waterfront property for some  years with a view to the eventual  development of a marina, and the  value of its land contribution was  enough to ensure that no other  public municipal funds would have  to be allotted to the project. In  fact, the referendum question had  assured residents that the marina  would not cost the town one cent,  as all of its construction, operation  and administration would be  undertaken by GMHI.  It was the 1983 announcement  by the Honourable Grace McCarthy that the marina had been  awarded a $400,000 provincial  grant that finally set the actual  wheels in motion. Dredging of the  bay and construction of the  breakwater began, and while red  tape delays were not non-existent,  within months the marina took  shape to become the beautiful  facility of which the town of Gibsons and the GMHI can be  justi fiably jxpud.  The Honourable Bill Ritchie, looks on as Gibsons mayor Larry  Labonte cuts the final ribbon in the opening ceremonies of the  long-awaited and often controversial Gibsons Marina.  ���J. Mueslis Foster photo  Same as last winter  Seven ferry sailings  For the first time in three years  the winter ferry schedule proposed  for the Sunshine Coast's Langdale-  Horseshoe Bay run does not cut  back the number of sailings from  what there were the previous  wjnter.  ! If the ferry corporation's board  of directors approves the proposed  schedule, the Sunshine Coast will  have seven sailings each way beginning Tuesday, October 9. At a  meeting last Tuesday with Jim  Price of Powell River, the Sunshine  Coast representative on the ferry  board, regional board directors expressed themselves as being quite  pleased with the proposed schedule  while making several suggestions  for minor changes which would  better accommodate the needs of  local residents.  , The schedule originally proposed is as follows:  LEAVE LEAVE  HORSESHOE BAY        LANGDALE  0730 0625  1000 0900  1320 1230  1530 1430  1730 1630  1925 1830  2115 2020  Transportation committee chairman John Shaske recommended  that the proposed first sailing from  Langdale at 6:25 a.m. be advanced  to 6:15 a.m., arriving at Horseshoe  Bay at 6:55 a.m., thus accommodating both those passengers  who wish to make connection with  the 7 a.m. boat for Nanaimo and  those who wish to catch the 7:03  a.m. bus into Vancouver.  This scheduling would provide  the only direct connection with  Nanaimo each day. By notifying  the chief steward of one's desire to  make connection with the  Nanaimo boat, the steward could  radio the Nanaimo boat and arrange for it to wait and for the  vehicle to board the boat directly  atfd pay the purser without driving  out and going through the toll  booth.  ;Shaske also noted that if most  traffic on the 6:15 a.m. sailing used  the upper deck and unloaded off  the new ramp, it would avoid the  traffic   congestion   which   would  result from off-loading Langdale  traffic crossing through on-loading  Nanaimo traffic.  To stay within an eight hour  shift, the proposed 12:30 p.m. sailing from Langdale and the return  1:20 p.m. (1320) sailing from  Horseshoe Bay would be advanced  to 12:20 p.m. and 1:10 p.m. (1310)  respectively. Other afternoon sailings would be at the same time as  in the current schedule.  The proposed schedule calls for  a 9 a.m. sailing out of Langdale instead of one presently at 8:30 a.m.  Price explained that this would give  traffic coming off the Saltery Bay-  Earl Cove ferry a safer driving time  to make connection with the ferry  to Vancouver.  Of the proposal in general, Priced noted, "Gaps are reduced, the  schedule is more evened out, and  it's a far safer situation for  everyone concerned."  Price was commended for this  energetic representation of Sunshine Coast needs to the ferry  board.  Regional directors also apprised  Price of specific local traffic concerns relating to ferry traffic and  the ferry terminal, and solicited his  support in helping to remedy them.  Referring to the untenable situation of four lanes of ferry traffic  having to merge into one in order  to enter Highway 101 at the end of  the ferry terminal lot, "It's now  time to fix that bottleneck," stated  Gibsons alderman John Burnside.  Pointing out the irony of such a  traffic jam potentially confronting  the thousands of people who will  come to the Sunshine Coast while  visiting Expo '86, a transportation  exhibition, and referring to the  hairpin turn route around Gibsons  which necessitates the main street  being a truck route, "It's an embarrassment to the municipality  and the province," he continued,  requesting that Price use whatever  influence he had to forward the  building of a Gibsons by-pass.  "We need to fix that situation if  we're going to encourage and  develop tourism on a year-round  basis," responded Price,  "Transportation is the key to  our area," emphasized Gibsons  alderman Ron Neilson.  Looking to the immediate problems, several suggestions were  made concerning defining more  precisely the point at which  vehicles leaving the ferry terminal  should merge; having trucks pull  over to allow car traffic to leave the  terminal first; having a few  machines in the terminal lot so  waiting passengers can at least get a  hot drink; and exploring "assured  loading" for business people who  have to go into Vancouver regularly-  Please turn to page 13  Regional board Parks Committee chairman Ian Vaughan and board chairman Jim Gurney took  municipal affairs minister Bill Ritchie on a flight up the Coast to visit Cooper's Green last Saturday, and  as a result Ritchie has given "approval in principle" for the board to acquire the green as a regional  district park, subject to suitable financing being arranged. -j��Rr Meou�� Phom  Old wall discovered  Sechelt studies seawall bids  An old seawall along Trail Bay,  stretching from in front of the Parthenon to the site of the old  government wharf and dating back  perhaps 60 years, was reported to  Sechelt's Planning Committee last  week by planning technician Al  Hartman. Hartman said the concrete wall was well back from the  impact of logs, not too deep and  mostly covered by shale but, "I  was shocked, I couldn't believe it,  it's in very good condition."  The committee was meeting to  discuss three of the proposals  received for studies for a new  seawall, but Hartman suggested  that building a concrete wall was  not much different than putting in  the foundation of a house, and the  job could be done locally with the  help of an engineer.  "I'm convinced it's well within  local capacity to handle that job,"  said Hartman. "For the price we'll  pay for a report and survey you  could put in quite a few feet of  concrete seawall."  Council members seemed to feel,  however, that they have to go  along with what experts in building  seawalls say. "This is a major project," commented Alderman Ken  Short. "We can't go out and willy-  nilly experiment"  the scope o^the initial studies  proposed and the prices quoted by  the three firms vary widely. The  most expensive proposal came  from Crippen Consultants Ltd. of  Vancouver, who would do the  survey work required, prepare a  final design and do the contract  preparation necessary for $8,800.  A proposal by the local firm of  Roy Engineering Ltd. gave more  detail regarding the information  which would be provided. Surveys,  analysis of the preferrable type of  construction, preliminary designs,  'plans for phasing of construction,  a comprehensive plan for guiding  the development of the Trail Bay  seawall, feasibility of a boat launching ramp, final designs and  preparation of construction contracts would cost $6,000.  Consulting engineers Ker  Priestman and Associates offered  to do site surveys, determine the  feasibility of various design  possibilities and types of construction, draw up a preliminary design  and estimate construction costs for  $3,800. A further study of the  feasibility of a small craft marina  in the area would cost $2,500.  , Although all council members  expressed a preference for hiring  locally, it was felt that a project of  this magnitude required the highest  degree of expertise in the design  phase. Should they hire a Vancouver engineer, they felt sure local  contractors would be used.  Several councillors commented  that the Ker Priestman firm  specialized in seawall construction,  had a proven reputation, and they  would thus choose it at this point,  although Mayor Joyce Kolibas felt  "they are too rich for our blood".  "It sounds like they are the ones  who would most meet our needs  for a survey and suggestions for  how the seawall should be built, its  design and type of construction,"  planning committee chairman  Harvey Bist told the Coast News.  Council members will now request meetings with the three  engineering firms for more information on their proposals and a  clearer explanation of "exactly  what we'll get for our money"  before deciding which firm will be  hired to design a seawall.  r  Flu shots this week  Vaccinations for influenza will be given next week, on Monday,  October 1 at 11 a.m. in Gibsons Health Unit and on Wednesday,  October 3 at 11 a.m. in Sechelt Mental Health Centre.  Free moorage  While complimentary berthage was available at Gibsons Marina  during its opening celebrations last weekend, one lucky person will  enjoy the privilege year round.  Minister of municipal affairs Bill Ritchie drew the name of Bill  McGibbon of Vancouver as lucky winner in the Marina's Grand  Opening Draw. McGibbon now has free berthage at the marina for  one year. 2. Coast News, October 1,1984  V-.-  trl  f.  r  ���tood lueR to all  There was a gentleman in attendance at the official opening of  the Gibsons Marina last week who was a critic of the project.  His views echoed those that appeared in a letter to the editor of  this paper last week, though he was not the same gentleman.  There always have been critics of the marina proposal. The  referendun which was held a few years ago saw 65 per cent of  . those voting in favour of the project. It holds therefore that 35  per cent voted against.  The letter to the newspaper and the gentleman at the official  opening gave evidence that some of the original third of those  voting who opposed the project have not changed their views.  Such disparity of viewpoint is neither unusual nor undesirable  . in a community. It should stimulate discussion. But surely the  time for such discussion is when the project is in the planning  stage and when council is being elected, not when the completion of the project is being celebrated.  Consider the fact that the criticisms being launched by the  gentleman who was at the opening ceremony were governed  neither by the requirements of print nor by strict sobriety.  At one point we had in effect a harangue being directed at the  minister of municipal affairs, a visitor to our community who  had no personal hand in the matter of the marina project except  that he good-naturedly accepted an invitation to come and visit  a place he had not before seen. It was, quite simply, regardless  of the merits of the marina project, an exercise in the crassest of  bad manners.  It points to the futility of mindless hostility. The problems  that beset the people of the Sunshine Coast, as in the rest of the  province, are serious enough for such automatic hostility to be  banished from our provincial repertoire.  The marina project is a fait accompli. No one knows for sure  that it will be a successful project nor whether in the long run it  will benefit Gibsons. Time will tell. In the meantime we have  more urgent places to direct our energies than into a meaningless  wrangle that no one can win.  Surely we can all join unanimously in the wish that things will  go well for the marina, those who put the project together and  the town of Gibsons.  5 YEARS AGO  A Twin Otter float plane  belonging to West Coast Air,  on route from Vancouver to  Powell River, crashed into  the trees on the east side of  Porpoise Bay early last Sunday afternoon, killing the  pilot and sending the co-pilot  and three,: passengers to  hospital.��� fn Vancouver, with  the remaining 11 passengers '������  being admitted to St. Mary's  Hospital in Sechet. An eye  witness indicated that the.  plane banked to land, and  seemed to continue in the  banked position right into  the trees. With jet fuel gurgling from the plane, Sechelt  volunteer firemen did a commendable job of covering the  crash site with foam to prevent a fire.  A request of the Sunshine  Coast Golf and Country Club  that 45 acres of Cliff Gilker  Park be leased to them for  the completion of an 18-hole  golf course was turned down  by the regional board. Director Harry Almond pointed out  that the terms of the lease of  the park did not allow the  board to give up a portion of  it.  10 YEARS AGO  Mrs. Anne Pressley of  Sechelt is named as the new  secretary-treasurer of the  Sunshine Coast Regional  Board to replace E. Willmott  who resigned September 23.  Development goals for the  Sunshine Coast as outlined  by the Sunshine Coast  Regional District include: the  sight of and access to the  natural surroundings; a  peaceful, rural atmosphere; a  friendly, personally oriented  community; a clean environment.  15 YEARS AGO  Letters to the Editor of the  Coast News object to the  proposed nuclear blast in the  Aleutian   Islands   fearing  radiation fallout and earthquakes as a possible result.^  Civil defence coordinator  Wes Hodgson advises Sunshine Coast residents to stay  indoors in the event of an  earthquake.  20 YEARS AGO  School   board   secretary  Ann Burns resigns after 20  years service on; the local  M'bpard.        : x'x-'      * ;���":.  Gibsons Mand Area  Chamber of Commerce express themselves as being  well satisfied with the ferry  service now that two modern  ferries service this area. A  minor dissatisfaction is ex:  pressed because there are  now no hostesses on the  local ferry route.  25 YEARS AGO  A $60,000 Foodland Store  will open in Gibsons on  Thursday, October 3. Ken  Watson is the proprietor.  Dr. Swan and Dr. Stonier,  Garden Bay, have announced that Dr. Eric Paetkau will  be joining them in general  practice. Dr. Paetkau is a  graduate of the University of  Saskatchewan.  30 YEARS AGO  An unauthorized strike of  cafeteria workers over  wages, vacation and overtime led to a brief interruption in ferry service by the  M V Balnbridge.  The Reverend H.U. Oswald  and Reverend H.J. Bevan,  both of Gibsons, officiated at  the opening of the Port  Mellon Community Church.  35 YEARS AGO  Sechelt Board of Trade  studies the incorporation of  Sechelt and the location of a  liquor outlet on the Sunshine  Coast.  Effective this week the  Coast News will open a new  office in Gibsons Electric.  The Sechelt office will be  closed but messages can be  left at the Union Store.

Although the many who had broken with the past and had crossed  an ocean to reach their destinations may have accepted the decisions  they had made, they could not always wipe the slate of memory  clean. The homeland, beyond reach, was not beyond recall. If com*-  munications could not be maintained, the heart could hardly be  blamed, during long and lonely hours in wilderness cabins, for occasionally recrossing the seas to its birthplace. For those who travelled  light, and where the assembling of materials for writing letters proved cumbersome, every stop along rail and steam routes had their  racks of postcards. All of these convenient message bearers reserved  space on the reverse side for expression of a few of the senders'  thoughts of remembrance. Some conveyed this sentiment on the face  of the printed card itself. Until succeeding generations felt a  diminishing need for such contact, these bits of cardboard carried all  that could be sent by relative or friend over oceans to those beyond  the breach.

Peterson  Musings  John Burnside  "You know," said Jake, "there  might just be hope for this weary  old world after all."  It didn't seem like a weary old  world to me just at that moment. In  the glory of a September morning  Jake and I were sitting comfortably  in his rowboat on a placid sea just  off the Sunshine Coast watching a  silver morning turn to gold and  dangling lines in search of the  elusive salmon.  Now/ I'm no fisherman. Some  forays after trout in Scotland, and  British Columbia - usually unsuccessful; some very successful fishing.  for Arctic, grayling in the Wn,dra.;  river, just north,of Dawson Cii^io}-  the Yukon, where you could ca|||!  fish quite easily for as long as ..you*M  could withstand the ravages of some  of the most ferocious black flies and  mosquitoes on the face of the earth;  and one highly successful rock cod  expedition in Porpoise Bay constitute the sum total of my piscatory  experience. But there I was at Jake's  invitation, wondering why on earth  I'd never done this before.  "I'm glad to hear you say it,  Jake. What leads you to this  hopeful conclusion."  Jake checked his line before he  answered.  "Surprisingly enough, the first  thing is Ronald Reagan."  "Surprising indeed," said I.  "It's not that long ago when  Reagan's public speeches were making reference to the Soviet Union as  the 'evil empire'. The only man  making speeches as inflammatory  and bigoted as Reagan was the  Ayatollah Khomenie who was referring to the United States as 'The  Great Satan'. Now suddenly, with  an election coming on Reagan has  discovered that there are no crucial  areas of dispute between the USSR  and the USA and at the United Nations he has called for renewed and  continuing dialogue to ensure world  peace."  "You think the upcoming election has caused the change?"  "No doubt about it," said Jake,  "that and the growing popularity of  the international peace movement.  If an unabashed and military hawk,  which is what Reagan has been since ���  A glimmer of hope  he came into office, now thinks it is  politic to be seen as a seeker after  peace you can be sure it's because  that's what the Republican sampling of public opinion is telling him  must be done."  There was some action on Jake's  line and he bent his attention to it  for an instance.  "A dog fish," he announced,  and soon had reeled in one of the  ugly little sharks with the emerald  green eyes, disengaged it and re-  baited his line.  "Still on the international  scene," said Jake, "there's the new  European interest in Central  JjiyEperica, ...If may be that the allies of  ��� the USA can keep them from getting . tangled up in one of their  foreign policy myths like a beginning fisherman with his line."  I grinned, having had already  that morning just such an experience and having been rescued  from what seemed a hopeless  predicament by my mentor.  "I heard it again on the CBC the  other night," said Jake. "There was  a former CIA intelligence officer  who had been serving in Central  America. He was laying waste to the  claims that Nicaragua was supplying  the rebels in El Salvador. He said in  the three years that the United  States has been trying to prove that  Nicaragua is fronting rebellion and  supplying the rebels with armaments they have come up with absolutely no evidence that it's happening at all. Yet the whole  American policy in Central America  is based on that single non-fact.  They've been flying over Nicaragua,  illegally I might add, and patrolling  the borders for three years without  coming up with a single sign of arms  shipment."  "It is incredible," I agreed.  "They will not question their  preconceptions."  "It's the old never-let-the-facts-  interfere-with-a-good-opinion approach," said Jake. "They have  been misinformed consistently in  foreign affairs since the end of the  Second World War, largely, I  suspect, because if you want to advance in the intelligence system you  tell Washington what it expects to  hear."  "Anyway with the Central  American countries themselves calling for ,a peaceful solution and now  with the Europeans taking an interest, maybe we can save the  Americans from themselves, not to  mention the poor beleagured  Nicaraguans."  "Well it's nice to hear you so  hopeful, Jake," said I, "but what  makes you think that Reagan won't  reverse himself after he's won a second term?"  "That is, of course, always a  possibility," said Jake, "but one  glimmer of hope on such a morning  as this is enough to keep me going  for a while and should be for you  too."  Things started to happen to the  rod and reel that I'd almost forgotten I was holding.  "Jake," I said.  "Don't panic, man," said Jake.  "That's what we are here for."  For a while our world shrunk to a  single rod and line and somewhere  out of sight a very active fish. It was  good to be alive.  The Deadheads  for Yvonne  Like broken bones  of huge forgotten creatures  the salvaged deadheads lie in bleaching heaps  among the carapaces the rusting corpses  of old machines  above the slime the tide grass  to rest again  on the land that once reared them tall  in this bay of twin creeks scrubbed memories.  Thirty years of booming have beaten this place  into a shabby echo  of what existed before -  the lost precincts  of my Norwegian aunt -  her hospitable home  full of baking singsong accents and laughter.  Yesterday phantoms this bludgeoned cove  like an exposed photograph -  What was flickers dimly against the alders ���  The fool boy I lost here the girl you were  run yet through an ache of time  from the creepy throat of a rock-cricket cave -  play hearts in the sputtering light  of naptha lamps by the vanished sawmill - ���  gasp as a seal breaks water  by our rowboat's bow like a drowned man 's head.  Sad in the uttemess of change  we search in vain for random traces  but where my aunt's house stood is only a cat-road -  the rowboat's a fish place under the log booms -  even the sawmill's piling are gone  and the dreams lie scattered forlornly  among the deadheads like dinosaur bones.  Peter Trower  September 20, 1984  Maryanne's vievvpdint  Education cuts are stupid  by Maryanne West  Life, it seems to me, progresses  in cycles with a circular motion,  while the corporate actions of people generally seem to swing wildly  back and forth like a demented  pendulum.  Why is it, I wonder, that our  governments and other corporate  bodies never seem to catch up with  or be ready for change, and thus  find themselves reacting to it,  rather than balanced to ride the  crest of the wave or prepared to  meet the trough which inevitably  follows?  In education for example we  seem to be repeating a 1950's swing  to put all the emphasis on science  with everything else expendable.  You'll remember that the Russians  scared the pants off the Americans  in the early 50's by getting the first  satellite into space. In the ensuing  panic governments pressured  educators to abandon their belief  in the importance of educating the  whole child to push science from  kindergarten onwards. The fallout  from Sputnik was felt in  classrooms across North America.  I'm not putting down science or  scientists. Both are obviously  essential to our civilization and to  progress, but I believe it is important that scientists too are whole  people who have been widely  educated in the humanities and  philosophy as well as science. We  do not need people who know  more and more about less and less  and lose touch with reality.  The new electronic technology  will be little different from other  inventions which we use daily and  take for granted; it will not be  necessary to understand the inner  workings to use it. How many of  us who drive cars, use the  telephone or watch TV could explain how they work?  However important science is,  there still will be relatively few of  us who will become scientists and it  doesn't make sense to me to put  Simon Fraser University, just one  recent example, in the position  where they have to cut out  languages, arts and cut back on  sports to fund a new science program.  The new world of technology  looks as though it will offer few  unskilled jobs and even the skilled  ones may have to be shared so that  more people can have the opportunity to contribute to society. In  such a world, how to interact with  other people, how to make the best  use of leisure time, how to express  and enhance our humanity in a  machine controlled world, how to  organize society so that wealth and  resources are shared and used for  the benefit of the community at  large will be some of the important  things which education will have to  address.  In a world where there won't be  jobs for everyone and where those  who do have traditional jobs can  look forward to far more leisure  time, the arts, sports, music,  drama, etc. are going to be impor*  tant skills for everyone. These skills  can also provide jobs for the new  leisured classes.  At a time when it is daily mor*:  obvious that we need whole}  balanced, stable people as never  before, people with a wide vista of  interests and skills, it seems  unbelievably stupid that governments cut back-on education costs  and focus grants only in specific  narrow channels.  A correction to last week's column. No criticism was intended of  Debbie Middleton or the councils  donation to the Sea Cavalcade.  The cost of the pins given as gifts  to the other contestants for the  PNE Queen was I understand not  $1,200 but nearer $120. A misplaced decimal point can make a big  difference. ~&t^     >','^,,i>V1   **'<*��"'*sag-**  Coast News, October 1,1984  ^^fammmmstoitm  '<   -*    jf  elanstes ��os_it of irsew  "Editor:  tRe: Affordable Housing  On page four of the September  24, 1984 issue of the Coast News  your regular contributor Gwen  [Robertson takes issue with a view-  | point which I expressed in respect  iof a specific proposal put before  jthe Gibsons council. I note her in-  Merest in a Co-operation Housing  Society which I believe is a good  idea and I am in full support.  The proposal before council was  brought forward by a local architect and an out-of-town  developer. It was the second or  third time the proposal had been  discussed including a trip to Vancouver to interview CMHC's Mr.  .^Nickland by our mayor and Alder-  "man Ron Nielson.  The low-rental development  largely comes about by way of  lowered CMHC interest costs and  the incorporation of a non-profit  society. When we first heard of the  plan it seemed almost too good to  believe. All we had to do was pass  " a motion of support stressing the  - heed for this type of low cost rental  ".development in Gibsons, and it  - would happen.  "������    Upon closer questioning it was  L; ascertained that the town would  y.have to advance "start up" costs to  . create a company, appoint directors, and the town would initially  borrow (or guarantee) the funds  tfii?  for this low rental housing project.  To put the whole thing in context  my outburst re "columns and columns of housing for rent" came as  a result of the following thoughts:  1. The idea was being pushed  not by the needy or any other civic  group, but by those who could  profit from it. 2. We were being  asked to advance and guarantee  municipal funds, which as was  discussed and ascertained would  reduce our borrowing power for  other very necessary municipal services. 3. We misunderstood that we  would have to provide staff to  undertake a detailed "study of  need" to present to CMHC. 4. We  had at a previous committee  meeting discussed at length the  needed completion of the long-  awaited Community Plan by year  end and were told that to do so  would require the planner to be  relieved of many of the regular  duties for some considerable time.  Now, in the light of this, I suggested that the matter be set aside  with remarks to the effect that  there was no shortage of rentals.  "The newspapers carry columns  and columns of houses for rent," I  said. I cannot of course vouch for  their suitability.  Rents are coming down and I  believe they will come down some  more before there is an upswing in  the economy. The most expensive  rents are for newer homes which  the owners have had to abandon.  Real estate dealers are now busy  listing and renting homes as more  homes come on the market for  rent.  The landlords who can't rent  will be forced to reduce their asking price, and those who are trying  to rent unsuitable premises will  have to upgrade to compete.  I find it hard to support the principle of using federal, provincial or  municipal tax dollars to support  "low interest" housing for any one  group of people and not make it  available for everyone.  I have long held the view that we  could do much in turning our  economy around if we had seven,  eight or even nine per cent mortgage  money available through senior  government guarantees for all housing, with rent control applicable  where such money was used for  apartment dwellings or rental  houses.  Just think what that would mean  to the lumber industry, the construction trades, the real estate  market, the home furnishings  trade, etc., etc. The spin-off and  economic benefits would be so far  reaching as to turn the "subsidy"  into a net reduction in government  costs and deficits.  If we need new and creative approaches, surely this is a major  one.  This is a personal viewpoint  which I hold and I may be the only  one on council who holds that  view. Surely I am entitled to that  without being personally castigated  for having the courage to express  it.  We all need a break from high  interest costs. All things will  become more affordable when interest costs are substantially lessened.

Points about teaching staff  ^OHM^  The B.C. Ferry Corp.  has proposed a 6:25 a.m. departure  from Langdale.  On the questionaire three weeks ago people showed a  desire for a 6:15 a.m. departure to:  1. Get over the Lions Gate Bridge before the 7:15 a.m. rush hour.  2. Connect with the 7:03 a.m. bus to Vancouver.  3. To have this ferry connect with the 7:00 a.m. sailing to Nanaimo.  // this issue is important to you please indicate the frequency of  anticipated usage of the 6:15 a.m. sailing and reasons why.      _  Because of the urgency of this matter all responses  must be received by Thursday, October 4, 1 p.m.  Please send or hand deliver to  JODQOIIOQOl  Editor:  We are always pleased to be able  to welcome new teachers to our  school   district   and   we   were  '���' delighted to see the coverage you  "i gave to the induction of the new  5 teachers.  ������     However,   there   were   a   few  misconceptions  that   arose   as  a  - result of that coverage and that  wasn't anyones fault. The impression was that if there were 13 new  teachers coming to the district then  either   (a)   the   Sunshine   Coast  Teachers' Association was kidding  "���about restraint since there were all  ''these new teachers being hired, or,  r(b) restraint and cutbacks in education were over and all was well  i^-again.     .  Neither is the truth, Those 13  | teachers fill _" liftle^lesif tharf^elght'  !   positions (7.925 to be precise) and  many of those are in special subject  areas such as Native Studies,  French, Special Education and  Business Education. Twelve  teachers are away on leave of  absence and seven teachers have  either resigned or retired from the  district. Some of our teachers have  temporary appointments on a year  to year basis and some of these  people have been rehired.  The net result is a loss of about  four teaching positions across the  district.  No, cutbacks in education are  still with us. In some schools  through the luck of the draw in  their enrolments class sizes are  good but in others class sizes are  larger than ever.  We have been accused in the  past of whirling/ about cutbacks  and protecting our jobs when hun  dreds of others are out of work,  but it has always been our duty to  speak out responsibly if we feel that  the education of your children, our  students, is being adversely affected  and we will continue to do that.  Thank you for your coverage  about our new staff members. We  are delighted to welcome them to  the district.  Brian Butcher, President  Sunshine Coast Teachers' Assoc.

Some of these services include  work with blind children and their  families, special Low Vision Clinics  and services for people whose vision is failing, and important  employment counselling which  helped 178 blind and visually impaired people find jobs in 1983.  One other widely used program  in our community is the Talking  Book Program with 1350 readers in  British Columbia and the Yukon  Territory. Earlier in the year a  special mail campaign "Thirsty  Ears are Waiting" was conducted  in some parts of British Columbia  to help pay for this service.  In the past four years CNIB has  worked hard to reduce costs. This  includes staff reductions from 117  to 88, providing only one salary increase during this period, and  eliminating the less vital programs.  By redefining jobs, and greater involvement of volunteers, the important services have not been affected. As a matter of fact, services  in the rural areas have actually  been increased.  We need your help. We value  your continued support in the past  and hope that this year's campaign  for funds will be just as successful  as last year.

The classes are open to men,  women and children pf all ages,  shapes and sizes, and will now be  held on Monday evenings from 7  to 8 p.m., and Wednesday mornings from 10 to 11 a.m.  The Gibsons Garden Club held  its first meeting of the season on  Thursday, September 20 in the  Marine Room.  The evening was spent discussing  what was accomplished last year,  and what the plans are for the  1984-85 season. The new executive  was also introduced: Stu Metcalfe,  president; Peg Campbell, past-  president; Bill Mclnnes, secretary;  Dory Anne Robertson, treasurer;  and Bernice Chamberlin, recording  secretary.  Past-president Peg Campell  spoke about the planting done by  the garden club in Pioneer Park,  and mentioned that members have  received favourable comments  from local residents and visitors  alike. She also noted that the club  float in the Sea Cavalcade parade  took second prize.  Secretary Bill Mclnnes then read  correspondence received since the  last meeting in June, including a.  letter from Gibsons council thanking the club for work done in  Pioneer Park.  Plans were then discussed for the  upcoming year. There will be  garden tours, two plant sales, and  visits from many guest speakers,  COAST NEWS  CLASSIFIEDS  at    -  B & J Store  ' m Halfmoon Bay  untilnoon Saturday  ���A Frlehdly People PIbci  END OF SUMMER SALE  30 - 50%  OFF MOST  HANDWOVEN  GARMENTS  By JACQUILINE BROWN  SAT.

If interested bring a utility knife (Jack  Knife) and a piece of wood and we  will have an instructor available.  �� That is all the information I have  at the moment but come along and  see what it is all about. All our  other activities will continue as  outlined last week.  Members are reminded that if  they are buying Seniors' Lottery  tickets they should turn them in  through Branch 69. That way, the  branch will get credit which will  help our building fund.  Another way to help, the fund is  to take a look at the spices Jean  Sherlock has prepared and buy  them when you need supplies. This  is one of Jean's ways of supporting  the building fund.  I am sure that many of our  members must have handicrafts  they can turn to good puipose for  the benefit of the building fund.  Let's hope we get the go-ahead  from Ottawa before many more  days go by. ..<  Denley  visiting  Superintendent John Denley has  left for a three-week exchange  organized by the North American-  United Kingdom Educational Administrators, a U.S. organization.

Tickets for the rattle  ' can be purchased ahead of tintein  the mall during October.  As the auxiliary's special project  is the purchase of a mini-bus, all  proceeds will go towards this worthwhile goal.  Carol Bishop, the activity coordinator, sent a report. She stated  First Aid courses are being offered  by Canfor, and are rapidly being  filled up. Also the residents require  volunteers to assist in swimming  with the residents on a one to one  basis. Volunteers are needed to  assist in taking the residents out to  lunch.

We all agreed and the  minutes of their latest meeting were  read to us all. All members of the  auxiliary are invited to a  Hallowe'en party at the home, in  costume, on Hallowe'en afternoon.

And then in walked a person. He stood silently outside our  circle of writhing bodies seeming to have no intention of participating. Then he broke through the circle and marched  straight up to our leader. He muttered at her and she screamed in anguish. We stopped. "Don't stop," she screamed even  louder. And then came her incredible command: "When the  music stops jog around the block."  What power did this man have that he could make her say  such things. Ever obedient we did what we were told. When  we got back, gasping and collapsing she told us. The man  belonged to Hydro and was about to do a surprise high wire  act. Seems Hydro send their men in plain clothes these days  -just to frighten the public a little more! After that I needed a  little consolation.

Without doubt, it has been a difficult and distressful year  for a large number of people. We are concerned about the  economy, the lack of jobs for our young people Just coming  out on the labour market, and even more concerned for those  who are approaching middle or senior age who after many  years of dedication to a single occupation suddenly find  themselves at the end of the line.  There are many other kinds of human suffering that have  occurred In this past year: family breakdown, serious bodily  Injury or illness, loss of loved ones, loss of homes and  possessions. These and a wide variety of personal and  grievous losses may have occurred to some of us In the past  year.  And should we not remember that the person we meet with  a smile on their face, with shoulders set back, walking tall  and strong, may be suffering Invisibly to the same extent as  those who wear their hearts on their sleeves.  And we should realize too. there are those who are living  in absolute security and comfort who will not even realize  that they have anything to be thankful for!  What then is there to be thankful for? Let's face it we are a  threatened society. In almost every walk of life there are  those whose life styles, whose traditional beliefs, whose personal security and well-being are threatened. In today's international conflict we can legitmately feel that our very existence is threatened. What then is there to be thankful for?  I can only speak, In answer, for myself.  I am thankful that I was born when and where I was, even  though I have, at times, wished it were otherwise.  I am thankful for a rigorous experience of the 1930.'s,  which has made me mentally equipped to handle stress and  reversals. Every type of modern scientific experiment points  to patterns of behavior based on.experience.    ,  My experience was of what we are going through now. I  feel sorry indeed, for those who cannot adjust to happiness  with the basic necessities of Ilfe,and make-do, If that is what  their financial situation dictates. I was taught that "a half of a  loaf Is better than none". This is something that needs serious  consideration by those who go for broke in the belief that  "all or nothing" is the best way to go.  I am thankful for the good health which I possess at my  time In life. It .is Cod's gift to one who has had self-  confidence, who has been active physically and mentally,  and with a modern and youthful outlook.  On the eve of writing this article, 1 have become engaged  to Mary who has been my loving companion this past year  and who has encouraged me to believe in myself when I was  in the throes of a marriage breakup. For this comfort and relationship, I am truly thankful.  1 am thankful for my family of whom'each is different and  each in his or her own way has contributed to my growth,  strength, and well being.  I am thankful for each and every member of our store staff,  for their earnest efforts and loyalty, I could never turn my  back on them for they deserve my loyalty too.  And finally I am just thankful for being alive and in good  health. I believe that given the strength of will and the right  direction, that most anything is possible, for me and you.  Let us take stock of the reasons we have left to give thanks  and do so in a positive manner. That in Itself may help to bring about change in us for the better of all.

Jim  Byrnes and his extremely hard hitting band literally knocked the  socks off most everyone in the hall.  Anyone who has ever listened to  "George Thoroughgood and The  Destroyers" could have identified  with this incredible boogie band. A  driving rhythm beat pushed by a  professional drummer, bassman  and backed up by an organist as  good   at   improvisational   jazzy,  blues as Jim Byrnes himself made  for one of the most complete music  nights of my life. These guys were  truly "Men at Work".  Bruce Forsythe worried and fretted all evening. Of course when  you're the hired sound man you  want to get it just right.

Affiliated with the Vancouver group, who receive their inspiration from Dr. Jerry Jam-  polsky. This core group will, meet  with people who need assistance.  Perhaps they are suffering from  depression, or a chronic or terminal disease. Attitudinal healing  is the process of letting go of painful, fearful attitudes. The support  group shares unconditional and  non-judgemental love. We also remind each other we are here on  earth to teach only love and to  learn from one another. Whatever  is shared, we listen to the problem,  but we see beyond it, to the perfection of God and the light within  each of us.  Evans Hermon is the instructor  and/or leader in the above cpurses.  She is a registered nurse, has worked at St. Mary's Hospital and on  home nursing and is currently  working out of her home as nurse-  therapist. She feels it's really important to have people look at their  lifestyle and to start taking responsibility for their health. Her further  studies include: yoga and meditation, psychotherapeutic healing,  reflexology and reiki.  Evans is a member of a group  who hope to have a Well-Being  Centre operating full time on the  Sunshine Coast.

This 1954 film is the classic  Hitchcock film, and his personal  favourite. It is a film about  voyeurism. James Stewart is confined to a wheelchair by a broken  leg, and spends his time spying on  his neighbours. His observations  lead him to believe that one of  them (Raymond Burr) has  murdered his wife. Stewart's society girlfriend Grace Kelly, and her  no-nonsense nurse Thelma Ritter  make a wonderful trio.  This film will be shown at the  Arts Centre, Wednesday, October  3 at 8 p.m. Adults $3.50.

It is two years since the Sunshine  coast took part in gathering a cargo  of peace for this small struggling  nation in Central America. Our  area donated farming and garden  tools, school supplies, hospital  equipment, sewing materials, office gear, carpentry and electrical  supplies and a multitude of  miscellaneous useful objects. A  great truckload! Our Coast's  residents also gave generously of  energies and money donations,  especially at a compelling musical  performance by Yolocamba Ita, a  Central American band.  In late November a freighter will  again sail for Nicaragua with this  year's Canadian cargo, labelled  Tools for Peace. The need for tools  of all sorts still exist for this small  coumr^r3using,itse|f with faith.and  its shoestrings out of poverty and  illiteracy into a self-governing nation in spite of harassment and  military intervention from the U.S.  Most of us on the Sunshine  Coast know of the Cotton Brigade  workers, Ken Dalgleish and Donna  Shugar, who travelled from here  last winter to join teams of people  from Canada, the U.S.A. and  Europe to show support and sympathy by helping to bring in the  country's harvest. They saw toys  from the Tools for Peace cargos  being used in a day care centre  where they worked in Nicaragua.  They talked with people who showed warm appreciation for the help  which had come from B.C.  People frequently ask, "If I give  aid, how can I be assured that it  reaches those who really need it?"  Our local Central American Support Committee, CASC, cares  about this, has ascertained that  Canadian representatives have accompanied cargos. One of these,  Denny Durocher, of Port Alberni's  CASC group was here in May as  translator for Mercedes Osorio,  visiting representative of the  Federation of Hospital Workers  from Nicaragua. Denny Durocher  accompanied the last Boat Project,  supervising the transfer of the shipment from the port, Cortina, to  Managua and the portions of.the  cargo to the local area.  Many of you joined in the efforts of the Sunshine Coast CASC  in the last Boat-Launching. Many  more are now familiar with the  needs we hope to meet since you  heard Donna and Ken report on  the Cotton Brigade. Some of you  tell us that you want to help.  Thursday, October 4 at St. Bartholomew's Hall at 7:30 is your  night to come and join us in getting  the 1984 Boat launched. We will  have a slide show relating the  history of the project and we will  pinpoint areas where your special  interests can lead to greatest help.  Please come and help us gather  Tools for Peace.

Gibsons triumphed 25-0  in the game which was highlighted  by a strong effort from every  member of the team.  Of particular note was Brent  Lineker who did an excellent job of  maintaining control of the scrum  as its captain. Jim (Wee Pee) Peers  playing his first game of the season  as Number 8, was regularly in a  position to support both the forwards and the backs and this was  of great assistance in maintaining  an open and free-flowing game.  Dave Rainer was the team captain for this game and played at  stand-off. His choice of alternatives in the back field and excellent support by Freeman Smith  and Brian Lymer made for an exciting and attractive game.  A review of scheduling problems  with respect to games for the remainder of the season has brought  some changes to the previously  submitted game schedule. Following is a revised schedule for the  convenience of fans.

Phone Naomi Cousins,  885-3665, get registered, and join  in the fun.  It appears the All Star Team as  agreed upon by the executive is going to take place at; least in the Pee  Wees and possibly in the Bantams  and Atoms as well. The boys will  have open tryouts in all divisions  until the end of October. After that  the teams will be selected and will  play the house teams in the division  above.  The additional costs in belonging to the All Star Team will be approximately $25 a month. This will  cover any extra ice time required  and travelling costs. To keep  travelling costs down the boys will  travel in a small rented van and it is  expected we will be going to an  away game or tournament every  three or four weeks.  At the end of the season there  are always some interesting tournaments to choose from.

John Knight has faithfully maintained our motorized golf carts  through the past few years, saving  the club the necessity of bringing in  professional help: Thank you,  John.  Thanks must also go to our  garden group headed by David  Hunter for the maintenance and  development of the beautiful  flower beds growing in the club  house area.  A special thank you goes to Pat  Vaughan who played havoc with  the weeds which tried to get started  all year.  The very active work parties,  headed by Jim Munro and Roy  Taylor, deserve thanks for major  clean-up projects undertaken. Roy  was also responsible for the sturdy  benches which grace each tee area.  There are undoubtedly a goodly  number of others unmentioned, so  a public thank you to all.  The seniors finished their season  last Thursday with a luncheon enjoyed by 72 senior members.  The winners of the Eclectic  Tournament were Al Dean, with a  low gross score of 36, and George  Grant and Bob Scott with low net  scores of 30.  A special certificate was  presented to Alec Warner, Roy  Taylor and Al Boyes for their  dedicated efforts in trying to shoot  a winning score with a winning  team each Thursday. To each, a  humourous and good natured congratulation.  The Fall Medal Tournament was  won by Ken White with a low net  60. Second low net was carded by  Bill Sutherland with a 61. Low  gross for the day was recorded by  Jim Gilchrist with a 72. Runner-up  low gross was turned in by Brian  Leckie with a 74.  Were your heat bills  high last year?

It is to forest production  what agriculture is to food production.  Through silviculture, Canada's forests  can be made healthier and more productive than ever before to meet the  challenge of rising world demand for  forest products.  The forestry challenge is one of the  most important we face, both as a nation  and as an industry which harvests the  forest crop. Industry, governments and  all Canadians recognize the immense  potential of a well-managed renewable  resource, and its contribution to the  economic and social well-being of  Canada.  Last year, governments and industry  spent $250 million on maintaining and  improving Canada's forests. About 500  million seedlings were grown in  nurseries for the next forest crop - nearly  twice as many as five years ago. More is  needed and more will be invested to meet  the forestry challenge.  Silviculture means not only establishing a new forest, but also tending and  protecting mature stands. In competing  with man for wood, insects, fire, and  disease destroy much useful wood fibre.  Fire protective measures and the judicious use of other silvicultural tools, such  as pesticides, cut these losses.  Today and for future generations of  Canadians, silviculture is the cornerstone  on which to build.

Sechelt council has taken stock  of its financial situation at present,  and the bottom line is that there is  jj* $91,169 available for capital public  & works should council wish to  j-* undertake such expenditures.  '%. Finance committee chairman  jl Ann Pressley reported to council's  t| last meeting that, of the amount  ^ allotted for capital works expen-  i| ditures in the current budget,  ���$ $59,425 has still not been spent.  j| Furthermore, $10,000 still remains  ffi from the reserve of $45,166 which  jg council forwarded from its surplus  If from 1983.  3< In addition to these amounts,  j$ unexpected revenue estimated to be  |Hf,M$21,744. will be received by the  **;..Village by the end of the fiscal year  <(December 31) from interest and  ^penalties on delinquent taxes (ap-  ' proximately $11,544) and from the  ^sale',of logs from Kinnikinnick  Park (approximately $10,200).  Comparing revenues and expenditures, and not including 'onetime only' revenues (such as the  sale of logs) and capital works,  Alderman Pressley noted that if  council brings in the same revenue  next year and its expenditures remain the same, it will have only  $17,000 left for capital works projects. If its revenues remain the  same and expenditures increase by  five per cent, it will have a balanced budget. This excludes consideration of the $50,000 which  council holds in reserve as an  emergency fund.  si _f ��  Council members will now examine the various paving and  drainage projects which it has been  considering, and set them in an  order of priority. These include  finishing the paving of Mermaid  Street, drainage and paving for  Teredo Lane, new pavement for  Reef and Shoal Roads near the  arena, improving drainage at the  marsh, repaying Trident Avenue, a  major drainage project to upgrade  old pipes, and various paving and  sidewalk projects. Its funds will  not cover all of these.  Council did decide at its meeting  to proceed with the widening of  asphalt on Salmon Drive, and the  installation of curbing and a catch  basin to connect with the drainage  system on Surf Circle. A petition  by residents several weeks ago drew  to council's attention the flooding,  washing into yards of gravel, and  break-up of the pavement which  has occurred, and recent rains have  exacerbated the situation.  A m&n of experience  Mansfield on Care Board  h:  Si  Si  Hi  ��� r>\  Si  i>  n"  **.  Si  n,  �����;  t  %  Roy Mansfield of Pender Harbour was appointed to the governing body of Shorncliffe Intermediate Care Home on  September 25. Mansfield was named to the Sechelt Intermediate Care  Society by chairman Harris Cole.  To his new community position  Mansfield brings a wealth of experience and a solid record of  achievement.  His 10 years in the Pender Harbour area include eight years with  the Pender Harbour Lions club; he  is a past president of the Pender  Harbour Legion; he is president of  the Madeira Park Clinic; he is  treasurer of Suncoast Players; he  instituted the Community Council  for Pender Harbour, drawing  representations from all community organizations. As chairman of  the latter group he organizes the  annual community picnic.  Mansfield  started  his  working  career in Vancouver but his work  has taken him to Victoria, Montreal and New York. He spent 20  years in the candy business and as  assistant manager of Canadian Liquorice. He spent a further 20-  years as a claims adjuster, the latter  10 with his own company which  was involved in the construction of  warehouses.  His interests outside of his work  included 20 years with St. John's  Ambulance as a community officer  in Monreal. He was also for 15  years associated with the RCMP  reserve.  Well qualified for any board,  Mansfield will be a major asset for  the Sechelt Intermediate Care  Society.  J-Jartfey's  Ferry meeting  Continued from page 1  It was noted that there is no  longer an area where boats from  Keats and Gambier Islands can tie-  up or pick up or drop . off  passengers. It was also suggested ���  that the Dogwood Princess might  be able to make a stop in Gibsons  on its way to Keats from Langdale  so that tourists could leave their  cars in Horseshoe Bay and travel to  Gibsons all by boat.  "Our next step is definitely to in-  Monday - Friday 8:00 -' 5:<  Saturday 10:00 - Noon  auto  body  crease traffic patterns on-the ferry  by increasing tourism," said Price.  "If we start by thinking positively,  things will change."  Shaske" noted that he is  negotiating with the Sandman Inn  in Vancouver for special rates for  those showing proof that they have  come from the Sunshine Coast. He  is also working on having  Horseshoe Bay become a flag stop  for B.C. Rail.  - recommended by South Coast Ford -  885-9877  Home Phone 885-5085  * I.C.B.C.

Bill Hunche, treasurer of the  board of directors, outlined the effects a year of austerity has had  upon the functioning of the health  clinic. The outcome is that the  clinic must lean financially more  heavily than ever upon the auxiliary if it is to continue medical  services vital to a community which  extends all the way to Egmont.  Residents of area "A" are urged  to consider seriously what their  plight would be if the clinic had to  close its doors. They must decide  to support the clinic and to  dedicate a few hours a month of  their spare time to auxiliary activities.

Chief  among them was whether to let the  school use the smaller community  use room for the special needs program.  Ann Skelcher was added to the  staff of Roberts Creek elementary  this fall but the school has no place  for her to conduct her instructions.  The nurse's room was too crowded  with the school computer and the  occasional sick kid. ' .  The community rooms were not  supposed to be for the school's use  but the committee decided to allow  the room to be used on a temporary basis. The equipment in the  room is to be made completely portable so that it can be moved out if  a community group wishes to use it  and the school board is to be advised that they must find an alternative solution in the near future.  For those unfamiliar with tti��  Roberts Creek Joint Use Facility,  beside the gym, showers, and kitchen upstairs, there are two community   rooms   plus   bathrooms  downstairs. The larger games room  is already well-used by such groups  as   New   Horizons,   the   Cameo  Club, and Brownies. The room in  question    is   across   the   hall,  carpeted,   and   suitable   for   a  meeting   of   10   to   12   people.  Anybody wishing to  rent  either  room may book through Continuing Education.  WEEK'S COURSES  A reminder of the.

Were you ever read to as a  child - by your mother or father,  by a favourite relative or by a  babysitter or even an older brother  or sister? If you were, chances are  it's now among . your - favourite  memories of childhood. Chances  are that the person who read to you  also remembers the experience with  pleasure.  Reading aloud to children is a  practice as old as written history.  The Bible tells how Joshua read  aloud to the "little ones" (Joshua  8:35). In centuries gone by, reading  aloud was a favourite past-time for  those who could read. Today many  parents routinely read aloud to  their children several times a week  to several times a day, at snack  time, quiet time, bedtime or while  waiting in the doctor's office or at  any time. Today, in school, many  teachers include reading aloud as  part of their regular instruction.  Are there good reasons for  reading aloud to children - children  of any age, even those who can  read by themselves?  One psychologist puts it this  way: "In the busy, often  overscheduled lives most parents  and children lead these days,  reading aloud offers an opportunity for special moments of warmth  and closeness, much enhanced by  the undivided attention the child  receives from the parents."  Reading aloud provides entertainment and enjoyment. It exposes children to new experiences,  new ways of using our language  ahd encourages them to read as  they enjoy their time with their  parents. There is also a great deal  of evidence that regular reading  aloud to children aids language  development, achievement in  reading and the development of interest in reading. Research, ��� and  . commen sense, also shows that  parents have a greater influence on  young children than any other factor and their example profoundly  affects the way children react to  books and to reading.  Since being read aloud to is  pleasurable for children, it follows  that reading aloud to them provides them with a positive attitude  to books and to reading. One  researcher explains it this way:  "The most important single factor  in developing your child's desire to  read 'is constant exposure to books"  at home as a natural pleasant part  of-.their daily life. A child who is  having a good time using books  will probably want to continue this  association."  To read aloud to a child is to  provide .him or her with a positive  model of reading and of the use of  books. It. shows the child that it is  okay and comfortable to use  books, that reading is enjoyable  and that reading is of value. Not  only does it prepare the child for  reading but it also creates a "mindset" of anticipation and wanting to  read. In short, it has been shown  that throughout their childhood  and   adolescence,   hearing   good  CLASSIFIEDS  B & J Store  ritil noon Sntiifday  foSoks read aloud by an enthusiastic adult is a crucial  motivating factor in helping your  people become and remain readers.  Studies have shown that children  who learn to read before entering  school as well as those who learn to  read early in school, are usually  children who have been read to at  home on a regular and frequent  basis. The teachers on the Sunshine  Coast encourage you to read to  your children. You'll not only enjoy it but you will be helping your  children as well.

X^  GIBSONS RCMP  Vandalism was reported to  police on September 23 from the  Gibsons elementary school. Rocks  or beer bottles were used to smash  windows. Police are still investigating.  On September 26, Bob Helton  of Gibsons reported the theft of his  12-speed bicycle which he had left  parked in front of Miller's Cabaret  for a short while. When he came  back the $600 bike had been stolen.  Gibsons RCMP have received  several complaints of dogs running  at large within the town of Gibsons  and regional district areas. Should  these dogs be observed running at  large, police will be issuing violation notices to the owners of the  dogs:  According the the Livestock  Protection Act, once the first  report has been issued, the dog's  owner is required to submit to the  RCMP a written explanation of the  circumstances under which his dog  is running at large. Should the same  dog (s) be found running at large  again before December 31 of the  same year, a final yiolation report  will be issued and a $35 fine assessed and in addition, the dog may be  taken into custody and dispatched.  Further, the dog owner may be  prohibited from owning or keeping  any other dog for a period of one  year from the date of the order.  Local RCMP will specifically enforce the Livestock Protection Act  regarding dogs for which repeated  complaints are received. Police  also wish to remind all dog owners  that all dogs must be licensed.  Block  parenting  The Block Parent Program  originated in London, Ontario in  1968. It was started by the Council  of Jewish Women after the murder  of a child. Now, in 1984, there are  95 Block Parent Communities in  B.C. alone. In Canada, there are  850 communities with over one and  a half million Block Parents.  A Block Parent Program consists of several homes in each block  displaying a Block Parent sign.  This signifies to the child that protection and responsible assistance  in an emergency���i.e.: being  alarmed by strangers, accidents,  illness, bullies, vicious animals���is  available at that home displaying  the Block Parent sign.  Previous to this year Constable  W. Leatherdale, our RCMP community liaison, has endeavoured to  introduce the program into the  community.  This year each school will have a  school coordinator to establish the  program in its area. We hope that  by having an active organization in  each school we will make our community a safe one for our children.  Any responsible adult (over the  age of 16 years) may become a  Block Parent providing they are  willing to be screened by the local  RCMP. Any person in the Block  Parent home over the age of 16  years must also be screened by the  RCMP.  This year we would like to  establish at least two Block Parents  on each block. Of particular concern are the routes used daily by  the children walking to school.  Let's all work together this first  year to make our community a safe  one for our children. The slogan of  the   Block   Parent   Program   is,  'Block Parents Care, Do You?"  Anyone wishing more infomra-  tion or interested in becoming a  Block Parent may contact the area  co-ordinator for Gibsons, Mel  Byatt at 886-9150 or the RCMP at  886-2245.  In the Langdale area contact  Mary Bland at 886-7574, and in  Cedar Grove area call Mary Ann  DeVries at 886-7363.  SECHELT RCMP  The rash of break and entries  that has been plaguing Sechelt and  area in the past two weeks is still  continuing.

Attention: Personnel. #40  Our Town  Coast News, October 1,1984  17.  nn  ASSAULT: PART 17  LETTERS  These letters were written by  people in Our Town. People  courageous enough to share with  us their experiences no matter how  painful this may be. We thank you  for coming forward and writing to  us. Without your contributions, we  wouldn't be able to fully complete  our series on sexual abuse. The let-  . ters have been slightly edited for  the purpose of brevity and clarity.  Again, our thanks for caring  enough to write to Our Town.  From a local woman:  "My husband has recently been  imprisoned for sexual abuse of our  eldest daughter. You speak of how  things should be handled best for  all people in authority. This certainly wasn't the case for any of us.  "My husband never denied  anything our daughter said happened between them. They assumed I knew what had happened. I  did not. I don't think they believed  me. My husband was charged and  had asked that the sentencing be  done as soon as possible so that  our daughters and I would not  have to go through any more hurt  and pain. The sentencing was  delayed a number of times and  things were dragged out. As a  result of this, my daughter, who  was in a foster home at the time,  took an overdose of pills and  almost died.  "We never received any  counselling. My daughter did  receive treatment and some  counselling when she was in the  hospital and she is still receiving  counselling. My youngest has been  quite upset by all this. Not having  her father and her sister is hard for  her. My husband is in prison, my  eldest daughter is still in a foster  home and I am now living alone  with my youngest.  "I would like my husband to be  home again with us. I love him very  much and so does my youngest.  My eldest daughter will be on her  own soon. She knows how I feel  about her father and she  understands. My husband is sorry  for what happened to us all and he  is doing all he can to show he has  changed and that he was wrong for  doing what he did. I think he  should have a chance to live with  us all again. I love him and want us  back together. I love my daughters  very much and I want what is best  for us all.  "Thank you for your time. This  has been a very hard thing for us  all. It has also caused conflict  within my family as to the stand I  have taken in this situation and  what has happened to my daughter  also. This is another thing that has  been hard to live with. Many family members and friends have been  very supportive. There are many  different opinions amongst  everyone concerning what I should  do. It's certainly hard to know  what to do. I am not sure I have  made the right choice but I have  made the choice I want. I want my  family together again."  From a local woman:  "I applaud your column on the  sexual abuse of children. As I read  your column, I thought that there  must be hundreds (thousands?) of  people like myself who have a  history of abuse, but will not write  to you. We don't write because we  have to keep The Secret. -  "Keeping The Secret was the  commandment of my childhood.  To expose myself and my family  was unthinkable, unimaginable.  And so, I have lived for 22 years  with The Secret, the 10 years of  sexual abuse and the 12 years since.  "The abuse started when I was  eight. My mother had just remarried after years of being a single  parent. My natural father had  deserted the family years before I  ever knew him. My mind has mercifully blocked out most of those  early years. I don't ever remember  fighting back; I simply submitted.  By the time I was 13 I was so full of  self-loathing that I wanted to die. I  had a nervous breakdown and attempted suicide.  "Even those actions did not bring  the abuse into the open. My family  continued on as before only I was  identified as having a "problem".  My step-father continued to abuse  me. My mother seemed totally  unable to help me, (yes, I had told  her years before).  "Although The Secret  dominated everything else in our  home, it was never spoken of. Day  after day, year after year, we all  pretended we were a normal, happy family. I began to doubt my  memory, perhaps I was crazy. I  struggled against an overwhelming  depression. I coped by avoiding  home whenever I could and when I  couldn't, I went numb. I constructed a fantasy world for myself  and escaped there whenever I  could.  "Why, people will ask, did I  stay? I stayed because I didn't  know how to leave. To approach a  social worker or a teacher meant to  break The Secret. I had so little  self-esteem that I couldn't imagine  living on my own, on the street for  instance, as I understand many victims do.  "I finally did leave, when I  graduated from high school. As I  walked out the door, I told myself  that I would forget what had happened, that I would make a new  life for myself. I managed to keep  The Secret (with a few exceptions)  until I had married and was expecting my first child. Since the birth  of my children (I now have two) it  has become vital to me to deal with  my past, to get it into perspective,  so that 1 can protect my children.  "That abuse is now being  reported and discussed is so important. And that is why I have written to you. So that others who read  this will know, that they too can  break The Secret."  Please write to us at: Our Town,  Box 460, Gibsons, B.C.  Seawall for Gibsons  Plans for the Gibsons seawalk,  which will provide a pedestrian  walkway from the government  wharf to the new boat launch, are  now in the initial stages.  Mr. Dennis Harrington of  Dayton & Knight Engineering  Ltd., met the Gibsons town council  on September 26 to discuss the  future seawalk. The purpose of the  seawalk is twofold: to provide an  esthetically pleasing walkway along  the beachfront, and also to protect  the present sewer line interceptor.  Council-discussion touched on  various points such as the removal  of the present riprap, lighting alternatives for the walkway, surface  material, and concern of the present beach residents regarding boat  access.  According to the Gibsons  Revitalization Plan, $20,000 has  been approved for beach improvements, and $20,000 for the  seawalk. Dayton & Knight will  draw up two or three options for  the seawalk with the present  .budget in mind, and will submit  them to council.

The question of dog control, a  long-standing and growing problem  on the Sunshine Coast,, was raised,  again at last Thursday's Sunshine  Coast Regional District meeting,  and the lively debate which followed  shows how elusive a satisfactory  solution appears to be.  It was agreed that the responsibli-  ty for dogs at large lies with those  who awn them, and Director John  Burnside put forward a suggestion  that the right to own a dog should:  be withdrawn after perhaps three  apprehensions of the dog by the dog  catcher. Director Ian Vaughan  found some favour in this argument, but saw numerous problems  involving the long distances between  communities and the lack of  facilities in out-lying areas.  A recent letter from Rose Ayres,  secretary of the Sunshine Co^st  SPCA stated the willingness of the  organization to participate in  animal control, preferably "under, a  co-operative        government  umbrella".  As with most <x>n_riunity problems, financing is a complication.  However, the SCSPCA seems confident that costs could be contained,  and that its more than 340  volunteers' could provide after-  hours and weekend services, were a  financial commitment made by  local governments, including the  SCRD and were a shelter, such as  uHe Gibsons pound, made available  t^them.  ������ Director John Burnside, who,  along with Director Jon McRae,  forjns the dog control committee,  saicl * *we must find the means to  offer support and assistance to  those volunteers in the community  who We addressing this problem".  It was decided that the committee would make a report offering  solutions or suggestions before the  next board meeting in two weeks'  time.   \  Restaurant  Introducing Brand New Style  ���  .���SMORGASBORD  12:00 Noon to 3:00 p.m.  (plus SAT. & SUN. 5:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.)  Salads -Appetizers - Entrees -Desserts  (Senior Citizens 20% off)  Open 7 days ! 886-2433  Hwy 101, Gibsons  By-law again  The usual prize of $5 will be awarded to the first entry drawn  which correctly locates the above.

A full gamut of concerns  At the Sunshine Coast Regional  District Planning Committee  meeting held last Thursday night  planner Geoff Power made a  presentation of the latest amendments to zoning by-law 264.  Since the last public hearing in  July, several amendments have  been made, largely due to the recent intervention of the ministries  of land, parks and housing and  fisheries. \  The hard stand taken by the  ministries at recent meetings has  led to compromises on the part of  the SCRD, ^ome of which are not  entirely satisfactory to them.  These and, other amendments  have made another public hearing  necessary. It wjli be held late in October, at a time and place to be announced.        \  SCRD  It was a full agenda at the Sunshine Coast Regional Board  meeting last Thursday night which  included meetings of the Planning  Committee and the Parks Branch.  Among the issues discussed were  vegetation management, an update on street numbering, the proposed fish-processing plant in  Pender Harbour, street lighting in  Sandy Hook, the Chapman Creek  land exchange, the new Ruby Lake  Park, shrub planting in Wilson  Creek, the Pender Harbour pool,  and an an application for re-zoning  in area E was received.  In a letter from B.C. Hydro to  the SCRD it was said vegetation  management supervisor, Adrian V.  Miller, would be available to meet  with members of the SCRD to  "describe the vegetation control  program and precautions which  have been. prescribed for the  transmission line in your area". It  was decided to invite Mr. Miller to  the November planning meeting in  order to let SCRD ideas oh the subject be known.  Doug Roy gave a progress report  on street numbering. The system is  now complete: 95 per cent of the  numbers have been allocated in  Gibsons and Sechelt, and 80 per  cent of them have been assigned  and recorded; some field inspection has been done and 40 per cent  of the numbers have been assigned  in the district; a manual, or record  of practise is 85 per cent complete.  There are consecutive number on  the entire Coast except for Pender  Harbour where the system has  been modified. At an earlier  meeting the directors had agreed to  obtain a second opinion on the implementation of the numbering  system in the new year.  Director Ian Vaughan raised the  question of the proposed fish processing plant in Pender Harbour,  saying it was a good example of a  gray area in the existing zoning bylaw 96 which still applies in area C  only. There are no clear guidelines  to resolve the issue and he is to  make further investigation on the  matter  and  report  in the  near  future.  The Sandy Hook Property  Owners' Association have applied  to the board for a street light at the  junction of East Porpoise Bay  Road and Sandy Hook Road.  After some discussion about board  policy on light installation it was  decided to give the project the go-  ahead, a move which will make the  intersection safer and assist  emergency   vehicle   drivers  Chairman Gurney announced  the board had declined to share  costs involved in a proposed land  exchange between the Crown and  Canadian Forest Projects at Chapman Creek since it is inappropriate  for the board to spend public  money on land which it does not  own. This was in response to the  verbal request from Canadian  Forest Products.  The Ruby Lake Park is well on  its way to completion reported  Director Ian Vaughan. Alternate  director Bill Lawrenuk of area A  has made the following suggestions: that there be no overnight  . camping and that the site be limited  to day use and related parking; that  there be no parking on the east side  of the highway and signs erected to  this effect; that beach access signs  and "slow, pedestrians" signs be  erected. Director Ian Vaughan said  the creation of access and parking  lot can be done largely through the  volunteer work of a local contractor who will keep costs to a bare  minimum. Timber removed from  the site may be sold to help defray  these costs.  Some Pender Harbour residents  have expressed concerns about  pool policy according the Director  Ian Vaughan. He feels a survey  should be conducted amongst local  residents to gauge public opinion  and suggested the best way would  be to draw up a questionnaire in  conjunction with the Pender Harbour Aquatic Society. A further  report will be made.  A delegation representing several.  area E residents put forward a peti  tion to apply, for re-zoning of ALR  lands west of Gibsons. The Land  Commission has expressed a will- -���  ingness to allow such a move  should the SCRD give its support  to the plan which is to permit one  hectare lots in the area.  Chairman Jim Gurney felt more  study was needed and Director  John Shaske suggested senior  government officials, SCRD  members arid area E\ residents get  together at a meeting tlo discuss the  issue. .    \ '  House  Word Processing  Demonstration  Friday, Oct. 5 - 7 to 9 p.m.  WORDSTAR MULTI-MATE  MAGIC WINDOW II  Join us as we demonstrate  some of the many programs  that streamline the writing  and editing process.
