 I.BGr.LATIVELIB,-_4RY  Parllf.msnf Bull ������: ji  \l\GTOlnlk, ���.������'.  "8V 1X4  8iU  amok!  Over 30 people registered for Capilano College's four session "Introduction to Fish Farming" course, and addressing the group on its  final evening last Friday was Peter Crook of Peter Crook (Scotland)  Ltd. Mr. Crook specializes in designing complete net cage packages  for fish farms, and when he addresses this week's "Aquaculture  Development in B.C." seminar for bankers and investors he will also  discuss site selection and fish farm engineering, and will show computer models of Scottish installations. -Fran Burnside pholo  In S.D. #46  Budget outlook bleak  When Peter McNea and wife  Debbie arrived home from a  party early last Saturday morning, they were horrified to find  two large dogs attacking their  250 pound pig.  "I tried to scare them off, but  I had to throw a 2x4 into the  pen before they'd get out. The  pig's ears were bleedfng, and today I notice he has an injured  back leg. We went back in the  house after we looked after the  boar, and minutes later the dogs  came back! I went out there  with the shot-gun but they took  off," said McNea in an interview with the Coast News.  This morning it was  discovered that the couple's  four breeding geese were dead;  two were found in the goose run  and the third in the driveway  adjacent to the house where the  culprit dog lives. The fourth has  not yet been found. They had  apparently been dragged  around, tormented and then  killed.  "Our neighbour's milking  goat was killed the other night  and his dog was badly chewed  up. He has three small children,  and we have two. A couple of  them walk to the bus stop every  morning, and we are both worried about their safety. If a dog  will attack a 250 pound pig, a  schoolkid wouldn't be too much  of a problem for him," said  McNea. "I'm definitely in  favour of dog control and  prepared to pay for it."  The police have been notified  and the McNeas are hoping  something will be done to rectify what they call "a frightening situation".  School District #46 has finally  received its budget from the  provincial government for the  ' term January 1  to June 30,  1985, and while the situation  ' looks  exceedingly grim  it  is  ��� nothing compared to what the  board will face the following  school year.  "We're  $150,000  short  in  : funding for the first six months  .of 1985 compared to the first six  .months of 1984," school board  ,. secretary-treasurer   Roy   Mills  told the Coast News. "And we  will get $400,000 less for the  'period July 1, 1985 to June 30,  : 1986 than we received January 1  to December 31, 1984."  , MIlieM $150,000 ^drtfati iri  funding results from not having  an $8,000 surplus to carry over  as the board did from 1983 to  1984, and from reduced funding  from the ministry.  The government has  developed a 'phase-in prograrh^  to get district costs down to a  formula amount within three  years. Last year (1984) the  government calculated the formula, compared it with the  budget of the 1983 year, and  paid two-thirds of the difference, a total of $344,000.  This year's (1985) six month  formula is compared to last  year's reduced budget and the  difference is split, with the  government providing funds for  only half the difference,  $150,000 less than last year. In  the 1985/86 year, the government will provide only the for  mula amount, some $400,000  less than the district received in  the 1984 calendar year.  Mills noted that there is a  fund of $147,000 which is raised  locally for capital costs, which is  over and above the fiscal  framework formula. In 1984 the  government allowed districts to  transfer these funds from  capital to operating costs, and  School District #46 put a new  roof on the resource centre*  spent $20,000 replacing school  equipment, and supplied computers throughout the district's  schools to the amount of  $72,000.  For the 1985 year, "the way I  read what's been sent to us, this  money can be spent 'at the  discretion of the board,' with  no restraints on us," said Mills.  "That ought to take some of the  Roberts Creek elementary student council president Jodie Eldred  and vice-president Sean Puchalski accept Timmy's Christmas  Telethon for Crippled Children Award on behalf of the school  from Joe Benner, secretary-treasurer of the Roberts Creek Lions  Club while principal Vern Wishlove looks on. The school has won  numerous awards in the past for fundraising; they have raised  $2,050 for crippled children in B.C. "Your support in these difficult  financial  times  is  very  much  appreciated,"  said  Mr.  WishlOVe. ���Diahne Evans photo  In principle only  Wharf gets support  The main discussions at  Sechelt council's meeting last  week centred on the wharf and  seawall proposed for Trail Bay.  Council has received another  proposal for a seawall along  Trail Bay, this one to be built of  2.5 feet by 2.5 feet by 5 feet  blocks of concrete weighing  4,400 pounds each. "That's  about the size of the big stones  that keep washing down the  beach, isn't it?" quipped Alderman Ken Short.  Although Doug Roy of Roy  Engineering had suggested to  Mayor Joyce Kolibas that council get down in writing the  engineering discussions, funds  spent and planning it has done  so far, in order to have  something definite* to present  when inquiring about funding,  council has tabled the seawall  matter pending further information on the proposal for a  government wharf.  Council indicated 'conditional' support for the wharf  proposal Which, in conjunction  with a proposed $7 million  World Showcase of Mariculture  to run concurrently with Expo  '86, is being promoted by  Richard Tomkies of the Sunshine Coast Tourist Association. The showcase would have  displays centred in the Sechelt  Indian Band Community Hall  and one of six hetpens selling 'U  Catch-em' salmon suspended  from the proposed wharf, at  which would dock cruise ships  bringing visitors to the  showcase.  "These proposals would  totally change the character of  our village,'' stated outgoing  alderman Harvey Bist. "This is  a vision, but it's so big it scares  me. Any such development  should go td public hearing or  even referendum."  "We have to look at a wharf  as an amenity for the village  itself as well as a way to increase  traffic* for local business  people," commented Alderman  Ken Short. "What about the  average taxpayer who doesn't  own a business? If we get a  wharf, there should also be a  boat ramp."  Council agreed a wharf could  have beneficial long-term spinoffs for the village, and could  bring a needed economic injection into the area. But members  were adamant that the village  could not be responsible for a  lot of its costs. The management and maintenance of the  wharf are still question marks  for them, even though such a  facility would be built by the  Small Craft Harbours Branch,  with design and much of the  construction expense accruing  to the federal government.  Council had been asked to  endorse both the mariculture  showcase and wharf proposals  "based on a lot of 'ifs'," said  Alderman Short.  Having discussed the concerns which they felt crucial to  such endorsement, and  recognizing that approval in  principal committed them to  nothing specific, they gave approval in principal to the concept, as outlined to date, of a  - mariculture showcase and the  placing of a government wharf  in Trail Bay subject to the inclusion of a boat ramp, provision  of ample parking, improvements to Wharf Road,  and the village council being a  party'to, member of and approving any decisions and  developments affecting the  village.  sting out of the cuts for the first  six months."  Mills noted that with last  year's reduced budget "we cut  things, not people. We had a  phase-in grant of $344,000  M which we don't have this year,  and our $8,000 surplus was applied to staffing, so we didn't  have to cut as much as we do  this year. But as things start to  deteriorate more will have to be  spent on building maintenance;  then the pressure will come on  people." XX  There will have to be discussions with both teachers and  CUPE workers on what to do,  MMillssaid. "The decisions facing us at the beginning of this  M^Sar *afe, more awkward than  terrible," he predicted,  "The  really agonizing decisions are  those \V<*i'll be facing next July."  Beavers  baffle  brains  The case of the Sechelt  beavers is temporarily in  abeyance, and although the  village council would like the  beasties removed immediately,  it seems the critters have a few  days of grace.  Village works superintendent  George Fawkes has torn down  the beaver dam six times in the  last few weeks, and concerned  over such a blockage in one of  their drainage ditches, council  has officially requested conservation officer Jamie Stephen to  live trap the animals and  remove them to some other  location.  But it's not quite that easy,  Stephen told the Coast News.  He would not risk setting either  a live or a killing trap in the  Sechelt Marsh for fear that a  Please turn to page 20  School board  vote unresolved  A recount last week failed to  resolve the electoral entanglement between Mary Belle  Bulmer of Roberts Creek and  Pat Tinham of Bowen Island  for the position of school  trustee for Area B of School  District #46. \  When the ballcfts were  counted last week Tinham had a  nine-vote lead oyer Bulmer,  689-677. The recount uncovered  a tallying error made on Bowen  Island which seemed to give the  victory to Bulmgrv^  The agent for Tinham,  however, who was present with  the candidate at the recount in  sisted that 46 of the counted  ballots were improperly marked  and should be rejected.  The agent is the secretary for  Socred MLA John Reynolds  and his representative on Bowen  Island.  Conflicting reports were  received about the results of the  recount and whether or not  returning officer Joan Rigby  cast a deciding ballot for the  Bowen Island candidate, and  candidate Bulmer has asked for  a judicial recount. Her appeal  will be jheard on Monday,  November 26, and if it is successful the judicial recount must  be held within eight days.  Vedo to address  Gibsons Chamber  The Gibsons Chamber of Commerce general meeting will  have Oddvin Vedo, Economic Development Commissioner  as invited speaker.  A fish farming film will be shown. Anne Langdon, coordinator of the Sunshine Coast Tourist Assocation, SCTA,  will also speak about the plans for the new organization.  The meeting will be held at the Marine Room at 7:30 p.m.  on Tuesday, December 4. Free coffee will be served.  Everyone is welcome.  Fish seminar needs  bigger venue  This week's seminar on "Aquaculture Development in  B.C." for bankers and investors has had such over-whelming  response that the location of Wednesday's day sessions have  been changed to the Sechelt Indian Band Community Hall.  For the seminar's complete and revised program, please turn  to page 13 of this newspaper.  Registration is still open for the Wednesday session only.  Anyone interested should be at the band's community hall at  8 a.m. Wednesday morning; fee is $125. For further information contact Oddvin Vedo as soon as possible at 885-2261.  Herring for Elves  The United Fishermen & Allied Workers Union will be  holding Christmas Herring Sales at various locations on the  Coast.  " The sale, with proceeds going to the local Elves Club will  most likely take place during the first week of December.  Watch Cable 10 for exact dates and locations.  Mayors Joyce Kolibas of Sechelt and Larry Labonte of Gibsons and the Reverend Alex Reid were among  those who gathered at a wine and cheese party at the Sunshine Coast Achievement Centre last week to  mark the association's 25th anniversary. -JohuBomaJdephoto Coast News, November 26,1984  ~��- _   , <��7S'j,XXj:^1 ���*%$  There are several disquieting aspects to the protracted  struggle for a seat on the school board between Bowen  Island's Pat Tinham and Mary Belle Bulmer from Roberts  Creek, not the least of which is that Ms Bulmer is to be required apparently to find the cost of a judicial recount out  of her own pocket.  It turns out that there was a counting error made on  Bowen Island and Ms Bulmer did in fact have more  original votes than Ms Tinham. This being the case it is not  immediately clear why it should be Bulmer who pays for a  recount.  Then, too, we are told that Ms Tinham was prepared,  after the recount locally, to concede the election but was  not allowed to do so by her 'agent'. Said agent insisted on  a definition of spoiled ballots so narrow that 46 were  thrown out after the recount and the position reversed  again. The fact that the 'agent' has extremely close ties  with Socred MLA John Reynolds certainly does nothing  to make one feel easier about the matter.  The role of returning officer Joan Rigby seems shrouded in some mystery, too. Ms Bulmer contends Rigby cast a  deciding ballot for Tinham; Rigby denied the action to at  least one reporter. Whether or not she cast the deciding  ballot, it would appear that the returning officer was  somewhat intimidated by the 'agent' for Tinham after the  recount had taken place, allowing the agent to throw out  ballots that everyone else found no fault with.  This strange little episode is an indicator that we must  take more care with the techniques of democratic action.  Regional Director Brett McGillivray was just one voice last  week calling into question the state of the voter lists.  Beyond that, it would appear that positions on local  boards and councils are going to be the battleground in the  future for the kind of confrontational, polarized  behaviour that we find at the provincial level and that  seems from this vantage point surely to be regretted.  Walking clanger  These dark winter nights are dangerous for the  pedestrian walking along the sides of our narrow roads. It  is very difficult for a driver on, for example, a rainy night  when blinded by oncoming headlights to see the foot  traveller at the side of the road, often walking with head  down against the elements and with his back to oncoming  traffic.  Make sure that you can see and can be seen, should be  the motto of the walker after dark. Too many make sure  of neither and tragedy lies waiting to pounce.  5 YEARS AGO  Benny LePage lobbies at Gibsons council for a  teenager recreation centre, supported by a petition signed by 134 teenagers and 220 adults.

Beginning with three vessels,  the Leonora, the Senator, ahd the Skidegate, the fleet increased in  size until as many as a dozen ships at one time carried the familiar  red and black funnels. Answering the needs of a coast growing in  population and industry, the Union sent for the Cutch, the Comox,  the Capilano, and the Camosun. Settlers and tourists travelling the  lower coast depended on such ships as the Lady Alexandra, the Lady  Evelyn, the Lady Cecilia, ahd the Lady Cynthia to take them to their  destinations. Farther up, the Cassiar, Cardena, .Chelohsin,  Cheakamus, Catala, and the Venture regulated life at logging and  fishing communities by their visits. In the process, they made possible the growth of new areas of settlement. When changing  technologies forced the Union Steamships to cease operations, the  coast which had depended on it for its*very lifeblood began to wither  away.  Gibsons Landing, 1923.

Musings  John Burnside  The Coast News is losing a  dear friend and the Sunshine  Coast will be the poorer this  week when Joan Huestis Foster  moves from among us to take  up a new station in West Vancouver.  Joan's name will be familiar  to readers of the Coast News for  her breezy, well-informed and  often controversial reviews of  the works of our local artists.  Her penchant for pennames will  have disguised the fact from  many that for several years she  contributed to the paper the column entitled Carefree Gardening under the name of Sandy  Loam.  Prior to her association with  us readers may recall some of  her work, for the Peninsula  Times under the name, of, Marr  cia Poultice. M.2  Before moving to the Sunshine Coast from Victoria six  years ago Joan also was the  Bridgewater-Lillooet News correspondent at the legislature  press gallery in Victoria where,  as the first.woman to crack the  all male scene, she wrote for the  legendary Ma Murray under the  name of Brenda Moscowitz.  She was a personal friend of  Ma Murray's whorn she affectionately called Margaret and  when Ma's daughter wrote a  book about the newspapering  Murrays it was Joan's painting  of the indomitable Ma,  characteristically holding court  at her kitchen table complete  with HP sauce bottle, which  formed the cover of the book.  * The full portrait- hung in the  foyer of the theatre when Eric  Nicol's play based on Ma's life  played on Granville Island a  couple of years ago.  While she was here Joan kept  revealing facets of herself effortlessly, witness the magnificent mural of Victoria types  which appeared suddenly on the  walls of the Heron Cafe just  recently.  In private she was a source of  support and encouragement for  several younger women in  rough passages in their lives.  Her  tea and  sympathy were  cooooooopoooooooooooooix��oooooooopooocoooooc*<^^  Farewell, friend  never served with saccharine  and she could most assuredly be  blunt, but her wit and wisdom  and the warmth of her heart  were treasured by those privileged to know her well.  Through the last five years of.  her stay among .us I was  privileged to number myself  among her friends and a cup of  tea and a visit with Joan was  always good for refreshing the  perspectives of the moment. I  took tea with her in her charming cottage in Roberts Creek  and later in the lovely little  house that she tastefully  redecorated on Glassford Road  in Gibsons.  As a sample of Joan's quality  as a community citizen there is  the story of how when she first  arrived on .Glassford Road,  which she loved, she glumly  contemplated the blackberry  bushes which grew in profusion  on the other side of the road  from her window. They were an  offence to her aesthetic eye and  she decided to see what could be  done about the situation.  She contacted the municipal  workers and said that if they  would remove the blackberries  she would undertake to take  responsibility for the upkeep of ���  the portion of the boulevard  which confronted her house.  They did immediately respond  and for two years Joan paid a   W^~-���T~  "�����*��  young lad of the area to keep  the grass trim and the area tidy.  Is there something here we  could emulate perhaps?  Though she has gone, she has  not gone far and we can expect  to see her inimitable presence  among us again from time to  time and, of course, to visit her.  in her new artistic snuggery. She  confesses that the six years on  the Sunshine Coast are among  her most treasured years. She  goes, as an artist, to be nearer to  her market.  I, for one, will miss her and  would wish for her the success  and recognition that her formidable array of talents  deserve. Goodbye, Joan, and  good luck.  Nostalgia  I miss certain long stretches of  fog shrouded California sand-  fondled and salt kissed, by trembling  foani cloaked fingers. Miss being part of  her quiet grey damp beach mornings.  Long to mingle with soft bubbles on the  crests of waves on hot summer afternoons.  I can still smell the piers that jut into  the Pacific from the edge bf her.  Many oak lined canyons  laced with red clay trails  wound to golden hilltops overlooking  orange groves and sagebrush.  I stood hushed in the midst of a spicy  eucalyptus covered hillside  with nostrils quivering as the  rattling swish of the long silver leaves  reached deep into my mind.  Children gathered at' the edge of a  grassy flower speckled field  that is gone forever.  With feet bare and chins dripping  " pomegranate juice they flew a  tail-wagging rainbow of kites  higher and higher into a blue spring sky.  Laughing and touching and sharing  young luminous dreams full of hope.  Renee Brown  Maryanne's    viewpoint  Broadcasting battles lie ahead  by Maryanne West  The CRTC's deadline for  comments on the technological  findings of the October meeting  in Victoria of all the parties concerned with CKVU's application for VHF 10 comes up this  week. On Thursday, or before if  we're ready, the packages containing your letters, petitions  and a brief from the Suncoast  Television Society will be hand  delivered to CKVU and the  CRTC office in Vancouver, all  copied and correctly organized.  The brief has expanded on  the three solutions to our problem which was stated on the  petitions: that we feel strongly  that we should not have to pay  for the upheaval to the systems  which CKVU's proposed  transmitter on Saltspring will  cause the cable companies. We  have no quarrel with CKVU's  desire to increase their equity,  but not at our expense.  We do not buy their argument that this is one of the risks  one takes in the market place.  On the contrary, we think the  job of the regulating agency is  exactly to keep order in the  market place and look after the  public interest. It seems to us it  needs a classical Shakespearean  judgement���CKVU is entitled  to their pound of flesh, but if  they take it they may not spill a  drop of blood.  Alternatively, perhaps the  CRTC can persuade CKVU to  locate their transmitter on  another site, but they must include a rebroadcast transmitter  for Island and Sunshine Coast  residents who do not have cable  service and would not want to  lose their off-air CKVU signal.  The third solution bf course is  to leave things as they are for  another 5 years or so, by which  time  broadcasting technology  and viewing habits may have  changed dramatically. CKVU  stated they think micro-waving  is old-fashioned and that we're  all going into satellite reception,  so in five years the whole issue  may have taken care of itself.  We had the opportunity to  discuss the problems with MP  Ray Skelly and he will consult  with the other MP's who represent the areas affected with a  view to some joint action in support of their constituents. He  will also find out from the  justice department whether in  their opinion we can make a  legal case for damages should  CKVU get a green light for their  Saltspring Island transmitter  with no strings attached and we  are left to pay the cost of redesigning our system.  CKVU has until December 13  to comment on our ideas and  after that the CRTC has pro-��  mised its decision. I would im  agine that will come sometime ;  in early January. Both parties <  have the right to appeal to the ���  privy council if they don't like ;  the outcome. Traditionally the :  cabinet hasn't wanted to in- ;  terfere with the decisions of '  their appointed commissioners, ;'  but now it may be different.  When the dust has settled on ;  this one it looks as if those who .;  value Canadian public broadcasting, that Canadian com- :  promise between the real thing ;  and the commercial variety that  we call the CBC, will have to go ,  to bat for that institution. There -i  is no doubt the CBC is a top- ;  heavy bureaucracy held to ran- -.  som by its unions and changes .  need to be made, but it looks as '  though the government is open- ;  ing the door to the CBC's many \  enemies, so their friends and *��  supporters will need to come *  out of the woodwork, stand up  and be counted. Coast News, November 26,1984;  Editor:  The surgeon who performed  a "heart transplant" on Baby  Fae by cynically experimenting  /with a heart totally alien to  human organisms (just out ofv  curiosity) has received much  publicity designed to stimulate  public acceptance of such  outlandish, ghoulish practices  by medical men. His TV appearances, bolstered by media  fanfare, have taken on such an  air of self-importance whereas  he should have been hung in the  public square by an indignant  mob. Such activities have  already led to excesses studiously obscured by media noises.  The medical profession is being elevated to undeserved  heights...and for what purpose?  This group is gradually attaining a degree of influence enjoyed by clerics of old at the  height of Papal Power that  resulted in the medieval inquisitions where even an absence  from church was considered a  crime.  Modern medicine has attained authority to decide your  fitness for a position; school  children subjected to drugs  under some fictitious  "allergies" or "abnormal  behavior" with or without  parental   consent;   an   ever-  increasing list of ominous  sounding ailments diagnosed by  unquestioned "experts"; involuntary mass medication  through your water supply, etc.  Under cover of public�� ' "���-  tance, immoderate experin  tation on human "guinea pigs"  trapped in a hospital goes on  with an impunity assured by  their cultivated image. Misplaced public confidence may well  lead to court orders for all those  considered "expendable" to  sacrifice their lives to supply  "spare parts" for those who  could afford it���don't laugh!  All this and more to come is  raking in billions of dollars to  the medical profession and drug  companies each year.  These are times that demand  your serious thinking and involvement!  Joseph Sparacino  Gibsons, B.C.  Personal observations: Your  "Comment" of November 12,  "Tories Take Wrong Road",  could have been predicted with  certainty long before elections.  The commentary, by James H.  Tyner, "Cold War Must Be  Stopped", deserves everyone's  approval and congratulations  on your wise choice.  Safe means of protection available  Editor:  Re: Coast News, November 19,  1984, front page: Pesticide issue  under discussion.  Please may I call the Sunshine Coasters' attention to  Harrowsmith magazine, October/November 1984 issue,  specifically page 63.  In "Soapy Solutions" an article on research into soap in insect control, written by Jennifer  Bennet. Halifax City ground  sprayed their elm leaf sawflies  with a soap solution made by  Safer Agro Chem. of B.C.  There were no (reference: Coast  News article) "sublethal  effects" to anyone other than  the insects although a soap sodden bug eaten by a bird may  have caused a tummy bubble.  Hazy memory here, but  wasn't 2,4-D the thalidomide  for bird and fish life in the Dark  Ages when we had absolute  trust in the Chemistry Set's  wisdom? "Sublethal" is a chilling, pate sucre of a term for  genetic distortion, paralysis on  down to plain, ordinary not  feeling good. As for the remark  that side effects from Roundup, or any other pesticide on a  salmon run of 5,000 would  cause less concern let the person  who make that remark examine  his experiences more thoroughly, please.  This pattern of thinking led  to the loss of a major B.C.  salmon spawning river in the  60's. Gradually, salmon  matured at sea, returned to the  contaminated river bed: these  left eggs which did not hatch into fry. By 1975 a small number  of salmon were hatching there.  Is it time to re-run the serialized  form of "Silent Spring", the  colour shots of distorted fish  and allow ourselves to be  reminded of what can happen  again? (Life magazine photos.)  By choosing Round-up and  ignoring the results of various  companies' insect control liquid  soaps, the field tests on these,  we may provide a Klondike for  this area's economists, writers,  photographers and children's  verse writers as well. An update  on a children's poem:  "Johnny Crow did dig and  sow. He made a little garden"  -author unknown. He sprayed  the Round-up all about, killed  the plankton! Pardon.  Shirley Pearson  Support sought for crippled children  Editor:  In response to a letter on  behalf of the local Lions Clubs  on the Sunshine Coast and in  particular a letter from the B.C.  Lions Society for Crippled  Children, who annually sponsor  Timmy's Christmas Telethon,  the local governments of the  Sunshine Coast have proclaimed the week of November 26 to  December 2 as being "Timmy's  Week".  The purpose in obtaining this  support is to give greater emphasis and publicity to the many  fund raising projects of the  society and Lions Clubs  throughout British Columbia  who will be trying to raise funds  during this week for the eighth  annual Timmy's Christmas  Telethon taking place on  December 1 at the Queen  Elizabeth Theatre in Vancouver.  Local Lions Clubs on the  Sunshine Coast as well as the  newly chartered Lioness Club in  Pender Harbour, will be spon  soring various fund raising projects and canvassing campaigns  in their respective communities  in order to make this Timmy's  Christmas Telethon a success.  All clubs will be placing collection tins in local commercial  establishments. In Pender Harbour the Lions/Lionesses are  having an afghan raffle and a  fund raising dance on December  1. Contact local members for  details.  We urge all members of the  various communities on the  Sunshine Coast to lend their  support to this most worthwhile  cause by contributing to Timmy's Christmas Telethon either  directly or through the fund  raising schemes of local Lions  Clubs as described above. Let's  make this a Sunshine Coast area  project and make the eighth annual Timmy's Christmas  Telethon a sucess.  We, the Lions Clubs of the  Sunshine   Coast,   namely  the  Gibsons Lions Club, the  Roberts Creek Lions Club, the  Sunshine Coast Lions Club and  the Pender Harbour Lions and  Lioness Club would like at this  time to thank the town of Gibsons, the village of Sechelt and  the Sunshine Coast Regional  District for lending their support in proclaiming November  26 to December 2, 1984 as  "Timmy's Week."  Zone Chairman,  Zone 19-A6 Lions Clubs  Management idiocy charged  Editor:  The solution to the ferry traffic problem at Langdale terminal is very simple. Change the  present two lanes that lead to  the ferry and Port Mellon to  one lane (the concrete barriers  around the parking lot etc. may  have to be moved back a few  feet) then with a little paint two  lanes could be marked in; the  outside lane to North Road, the  mside laneto Gibsons. A simple  ���'solution w an initajing problem  that would do until the bypass  road is built."  However, be prepared to live  with the present situation as this  area has an NDP member of  parliament and due to the  childish vindictiveness of the  present rulers nothing will be  done. The more inconvenient  the service, the less use, conse  quently the more reason to cut  sailings and crew which results  in more inconvenience, etc. etc.  Any government that builds  ferries for local use, then sells  said ferries to a finance company and then leases said ferries  back at three times the cost is  one step from idiocy anyway, so  we can't expect too much in the  common sense column.

The fiesta will include Mexican  food and two bands in an atmosphere of south of the border  festivity.  The evening is divided into  two segments so that there is  entertainment for everyone  from children to senior citizens.  "Los Tropicales" a homegrown  band, will entertain with the exciting rhythms of sunny  southern Roberts Creek...and a  complete Mexican meal is  available for the small price of  $3. Children are welcome to this  portion of the evening, with no  entrance fee.  Then at 9:00 the rug will be  rolled back and "Marvin and  the Marvels" will play for a  dance.  Marvin  Hiebert  sings  and plays a mean guitar in one  of the smoothest blues styles,  guaranteed to set the hall floor  to bouncing.  Tickets can be purchased at  the NDP Bookstore and Radio  Shack in Gibsons, at the  Seaview Market in Roberts  Creek, and in Sechelt at both  book stores.  The response to the "Tools  for Peace" campaign has been  wonderful. Communities across  Canada have all reported much  larger loads of goods than had  been anticipated. This comes at  a very important time when our  new federal government has not  registered an official statement  about Central America.  It is hoped that a resounding  support of Nicaragua across  Canada on the local level will  urge our leaders to stand apart  from the military aggressions  that are being promoted by the  United States administration.

Centennial 986  An architect's model and tentative interior plans for the  Centennial '86 Society's proposed recreation complex were  on display at the society's annual general meeting last week.  The few in attendance heard  Vernon  architect  Rick Thorburn describe the evolution of  the complex to include, at this  point in time, a central corridor  connecting an expanded Gibsons Winter Club and present  Gibsons swimming pool with  two racquet ball and two squash  courts, a six lane bowling alley,  a 409 seat  banquet/assembly  hall with full kitchen facilities, a  club room and a 266 seat raked  theatre with green room and  workshop. If pursued as a total  package and using not present  depressed values but predicted  1986  costs,   Thorburn  put  a  'realistic' dollar value on the  61,935 square foot gross area  unfurnished complex of $3,588  million.  With a central corridor construction, however, the society  would be able to pursue any  part of the complex separately,  without having to build it all at  once. Costs quoted for different  sections were as follows: Winter  Club expansion, two additional  sheets of ice and increased lobby area, including refurbishing  of the existing area - $644,000;  bowling lanes, racquet ball and  squash   courts   (funding   for  which   could   be   available  through the Recreation Commission,  suggested Thorburn)  "-$881,000; administration areas,  meeting rooms and parking area  - $155,000; theatre, including  workshop, vestibule and green  room   -   $810,000;   assembly/  banquet hall, including kitchen  -$855,000; circulation and service areas - $240,000.  Plans for the use of space  within the proposed complex  are still not fixed. The bowling  alley was suggested when plans  for a weight room were dropped  so as not to compete with local  private businesses, and has not  received much support, although the rationale is that the  present bowling alley is for sale  and would become residential  property if sold.  When it was noted that the '  banquet and theatre facilities  would also compete with existing local businesses, building  committee chairman Ray  Chamberlin commented that,  "No matter what you do, it  seems that you can't help but  hurt somebody."  Thorburn gave details of his  vision of each area, including  type of construction materials  and reasons for the varied roof  elevations.   He   has   planned  common washrooms within the.  'sports' and 'cultural' sections,  and one administration area for  the whole complex, ��� which he  suggested could be run by the  person presently running the  swimming pool. .Given one  employee presently at the  Winter Club and five at the-  pool, "If the whole complex  couldn't operate with six  employees, there's something  wrong," he said.  The proposal raised conflicting views from two people.  One man felt "there's very little  in it for kids", and suggested an  expanded pool with diving area  should be part,of the proposal,  even   though   pools   are   not  money-makers; or there should  be a skating rink. But a woman  who disagreed said, "Kids have  lots of things to do; in fact I  wish mine would drop a few.  Adults only have bars to go to."  During the evening elections  were held, and the society's executive and board of directors  were returned by acclamation,  with those not present to be  ratified   at   the   next   general  meeting.   Returning  chairman  Ted Hansen noted that "we're  not looking at the $3 million  figure, but at $880,000 for the  sports area and $810,000 for the  theatre...Pender Harbour just  got   $350,000   for  their   golf  course,  and  had  to  put  up  $60,000. That much might be  within our range."  After the balance of $3,000 is  paid for current architectural  fees, the society's assets will  stand at $10,804.25.  "What we need," said  Hansen, "is high profile people  who can go out and sell this idea  to the community. We have  been waiting for this proposal  so we have something concrete  to promote. We badly need a  community centre, and our  dream of such a facility has  become a distinct possibility."  drop-off  The Elves Club is having a  donation drop "off depot at the  Holy Family Church Hall,  Sechelt, on Saturday, December  8.

Pender  People    n    Places  Busy days ahead  by Jane McOuat, 883-9342  December I promises to be a  busy day in the Harbour. At 11  a.m. the Clinic Auxiliary opens  its annual Christmas Crafts  Faire with lots of beautiful  handmade Christmas gifts.  I remember from last year  that two women from Egmont  crocheted the most beautiful  starched snowflakes and I used  them as a little sign that  Christmas was near. Also, there  were toy makers from Roberts  Creek and on and on I could  go���but definitely do not miss  it.  Later in the day the Pender  Harbour Lions are sponsoring a  community dance. It will be in  aid of their very worthy  Timmy's Christmas Telethon  project. (You know, the same  reason all the tins are in the  stores.)  The dance will .;> be held  December 1,9 p.m. in the Com-  ..;.��� munity Hall and,liy% music will  b^''-"'s<ii[lppHed'"'by';'Kthe-': Sunshine  Ramblers. There'll be raffles  galore and dance tickets at  $5.50 will be on sale at the  following businesses: Taylor's  Store, The Hayestack, Centre  Hardware and R & M Auto  Parts. Also, boxes for your  donations will be placed at these  same locations one.week prior  to this event.  SUPPORT THE LOCALS  "* A short note here folks. Right  now every business in this Harbour is getting badgered with requests for donations for various  events. Well, that's the way  business goes and,' of course,  most of them cheerfully donate  some item or reduce the price to  cost.  The thing is, if you enjoy going out to some of these  "do's", checking your ticket  stub to see if you won a prize,  then return the favour and shop  here in the Harbour first.  If you see a price on an appliance in Vancouver or even in  Sechelt���phone home and see if  a local merchant wants to meet  your price. ���  You might be pleasantly surprised. 1 know positively that  Harbour Video has that policy  and I'm sure there are many  others.  SOME GOOD SCOTCH  Speaking of video, I asked  that a movie called "Local  Hero" be brought in so 1 could  watch it with friends. As it is  here now, take advantage of  seeing one of the best movies  I've seen in a while. Many times  throughout it, I was moved by  the similarities between Pender  Harbour and the little Scottish  harbour it is set in. Also, it  made me ache just a bit to leave  this beauty even for a while.  For those more politically inclined there are some strong  lessons in human nature and the  placement of value on "items"  of land. The movie is delightful.  About as delightful as the 42  year old Scotch they nipped into.  THANK YOU  Les Beharrell, on behalf of  the Legion, would like to thank  the public of Pender Harbour  and District for their kind and  generous support of this  Legion's Poppy Drive.  The money will be used to  help those that need help.

So many people  came through the doors that I  cannot believe anybody on the  Sunshine Coast missed the  bazaar. Instead of talking about  the past we'll try to bring you  up to date about the future but  there's one thing I must say* the  bazaar brought in enough  returns to ensure that we will be  able to buy a lot of nails to put  together the lumber we hope to  be purchasing very shortly.  But every function we have  staged in the past few months  has shown that we require more  room if we are to function as we  would like to and supply the  functions we, as seniors, require  to keep us ingood health and  good spirits. There are a lot of  us around. The last count I had  showed 591 members.  As a result of the bazaar I am  informed that the lot we will be .  putting our new building on is  now paid for and we are ready  to go ahead as soon as the go-  ahead comes from Ottawa.  ". We are now moving into the!  big time. November 30 and  December 1 we are putting on  Reno Nites with everyone  welcome both nights. It's for  the new hall.     \  And here is something for  members andj friends.  December 8 at 7:30 p.m., $3  each, Hawaiian Nights. It will  be fun.  Our Christmas dinner will  take place on December 13 or  12 according:to the number of  applications from members. We  are anticipating a record turnout. These dinners will take  place at 12 noon.  IMC still  needs aid  The Unemployment Action  Centre wishes to thank everyone  who has requested and donated  articles through our "Don't  Dump - Donate Program".  Some articles that are still  needed are: five dressers, large  heavy bottom pots, pots and  pans, dishes, utensils, two kitchen tables and chairs, one double bed, three couches, one gate  leg table and a van or truck for  making pick ups and deliveries.  If you have any of these  items, we'd sure like to hear  from you.

Kiwanis mark 30 years
community service
■V(

"Our whole purpose is to
help the community get some
building project done or some
service for the community performed."
One of the Sunshine Coast
Kiwanis club's founding
members, Ozzie Hincks went on
to say, "We'd pool our labour
and skills to get a building up, a
building like Gibsons' first-
library in the mid-1950's, and
then turn round and think up
some money-making scheme to
pay for the materials."
Ozzie Hincks and Keith
Wright are the only two original
members of Kiwanis still resident on the Coast who will help
mark the thirtieth anniversary
of the club at a dinner this
month.
The Gibsons Kiwanis Village
Care Centre/which opened in
November 1980, is the latest
community project initiated by
the club. Extensions to the Centre and the adjoining Kiwanis
Senior Citizens' apartments are
possible projects for some later
time''""'Avheh ~"the 'eolmtiry's
economy improves.
The anniversary brings a
recollection of former members
and club projects in past years.
One well remembered is Bill
Haley, secretary from 1963 to
'73—the Kiwanis seniors' apartments are called Haley' Hall in
his honour—who had a quaint
style of recording minutes.
"Our president spoke regarding
the new name tags and every
member should wear same at
our meetings."
The library building that the
club constructed about 15 years
before was acquired by the club
when the library collection was
moved to new quarters in the
village hall. For a few years the
building was a clubhouse and
was eventually sold for scrap
after serving as offices for the
contractor in the construction
of the Care Centre.
One building erected by the
club at Georgia Beach as a convenience to family picnickers
was maliciously damaged
beyond use within days of its
opening and has stood derelict
since.
The Kiwanis club has long
been a sponsor of the Boy
Scouts and Cubs, assisting not
only with money donations but
helping,them to raise their own
funds.    ;';\";!
Ozzie Hincks has spent many
a fall weekend in the Scouts' annual bottle drive and with the
sale of Christmas trees, and
Keith Wright, many a winter
evening at the Kiwanis bingo.
The Calf Club, Connie Mack
baseball, the Gibsons elementary school patrol when it was
manned by the pupils, queen
candidates in the various summer festivals, the Czechoslovak-
ian Children's choir, and the
first two years of the Music and
Drama Festival have been projects, over the years. A bursary
for a vocational student after
secondary school has been
available since the mid-1960's.
Small cheques, were always
presented to victims of house
fires along with a message of
sympathy delivered personally
by a club member.
The Kiwanis boat raffle
almost became a legend of summer festivities in Gibsons,
lasting as it did from 1960 to
1974. And each draw was made
at a pancake supper or a salmon
barbecue, with perhaps a show
by the Betty McHardy dancers.
"It has been fun," said Keith
Wright, "even to the hours and
hours spent picking rocks and
roots in Brothers Park in the   .-
district's,. 1958 .centennial pro-   n;,,
ject.       ■ ,■ • ■    • -: gn'fi
And Ozzie Hincks added,
"The fellowship among
members has always been congenial."
And so say all of us.

CURRENT STATUS OF FLUORIDE SUPPLEMENTS
Generally, it has been recommended that fluoride tablets and
drops be administered to children right from birth until the
permanent dentition has fully erupted at about 12 years of age. Recently, some
studies have shown that giving children these fluoride supplements during the
first six months of life can cause some minor enamel mottling (fluorosis) on'the
upper permanent incisors which begin to erupt at about the age of seven.
Although this research is not accepted by all dental institutions, I would suggest
that no fluoride be administered for the first six months of life. After that time,
fluoride drops or tablets can be very beneficial in non-fluoridated areas. The
following dosages'are recommended:

0-6 months

spokesman, "the residents can
have pleasant outings in comfort."
.Hans Grossmann, administrator of the centre, who
came here from Pearson
hospital in Vancouver, says
public interest in the needs of
the residents appears from
many quarters.
Besides the intense work of
the auxiliary with its fund-
raising bazaars, tuck shop, and
berry tea, and its attention to
those extra services that bring
cheer to the residents, there are
a number of groups, Hans tells
us, that help out with the care of
the elderly. m
Handsome   cash   donations
have     come     from     the
Elphinstone Recreation club in
Roberts   Creek,   and   from
Branch 109, Canadian Legion
in Gibsons. Branch 109 also is
host to a Christmas party for
the residents of the centre and
the senior citizens' apartments.
School groups, Brownies and
Job's Daughters come to visit
and entertain. Members of an
Elphinstone   secondary  group
come, each to be a "buddy" to
a resident to talk with them,
read to them, write letters, play
cards or checkers, go for walks
just as the elder person wishes.
Volunteers come Fridays to
call  Bingo games.  A church
group comes once a month to
hold service in the lounge. The
Harmony Hall singers, and the
,*69ers   bring   the   songs   of
yesteryear.
"There are many others,"
says Hans, "who have helped.
The nursing supervisor, Cathy
Baxter RN, and I see how these
volunteers brighten the days for
the resident seniors."
He added, "I would like to
point out that we are indebted
to the volunteer fire department
for their care and concern in
drawing up emergency exit
plans for the centre.
And the ladies of the auxiliary say their group has room
for more willing workers.

PhcrmaMve Price Coast News, November 26,1984  The newly elected executive of St. Mary's Hospital Auxiliary, left to right, Jean Prest, Alison Steele,  Carol Rigby, Dorothy Bruce, Joan Rigby and Pauline Lamb. Mrs. Betty Laidlaw, the new president, was  unfortunately ill with the'flu and unable to attend the induction ceremony. -dim��� eym* photo  Executive elected  Hospital auxiliary meets  St. Mary's Hospital Auxiliary  held its annual meeting  November 19 and a new executive was elected. Reports  were received from the various  branches and committees, as  well as from the Thrift Store  and Gift Shop.  The various auxiliaries and  their committees perform many  functions at St. Mary's hospital,  including working in extended  care and physiotherapy, as well  as doing hairdressing for the patients, providing reading  materials, taking care of the  plants and flowers, organizing  fund-raising events, working in  the thrift store and gift shop.  There are also 21 junior  volunteers, including 2 boys,  who have so far this year put in  almost 1500 volunteer hours  working mainly with extended  care patients, but also in  physiotherapy.  Mrs. Janice Farris, reporting  on the work in physiotherapy,  expressed some concern at the  dwindling number of  volunteers. "Our services will  be severely curtailed if no one  comes forward. Right now our  volunteers are working from 10  a.m. till 3 p.m. every week day.  Ideally we need two workers  each day."  Among the items provided by  the auxiliaries, who will raise  $50,000 this year, are many life-  saving instruments and  machines, such as a fetal heart  detector, a cardiac defibrillator  unit, an infusion controller for  chemotheraphy, a non-invasive  vital signs monitor, and $10,000  worth of miscellaneous instruments for surgery, examination and treatment.  It was suggested that signs be ,  put up at the thrift store, the gift  shop and at other strategic  spots, detailing the ways in  which the money raised by the"  auxiliaries is put to use. Indeed,  without the contribution of  money and hours given so  generously by the auxiliary  members, the hospital would  suffer dearly, as would all those  who are forced to spend any  time in its care.  The new executive is president, Betty Laidlaw (Sechelt);  first vice-president, Alison  Steele (Halfmoon Bay); second  vice-president, Jean Prest  (Pender Harbour); recording  secretary, Carol Rigby (Gibsons); corresponding secretary,  Pauline Lamb (Roberts Creek);  treasurer, Dorothy Bruce  (Roberts Creek); publicity, Joan  Rigby (Gibsons).  Speaking to the meeting  Peggy Connor, past publicity  officer, praised Mrs. Laidlaw,  who was unfortunately ill and  unable to attend, "Bettv has  done a wonderful job on theM  past council. It really shows that  if you just step out and try, you  can do much better than  perhaps you think you can."  Sechelt    Scenario  Fashion raises  services funds  by Peggy Connor, 885-9347  COMMUNITY SERVICES  FASHION SHOW  Proceeds from the Winter  Fashion Fest on Saturday,  December 1 at the Sechelt Indian Band Community Hall will  go to help the Sunshine Coast  Community Services Society.

SNO TIRE SPECIAL  piD  At Gibsons Council  Variety of issues  Gibsons council met on  November 20 to discuss several  issues, including the upcoming  boat show in Vancouver, the  latest on a coast-wide communications system, and an  aqua-culture training project.  To begin the meeting Mayor  Laurent Labonte declared the  week of November 26 to  December 2 to be Timmy Week  1984 in the town of Gibsons.  Following the proclamation,  Anne Langdon, manager of the  Sunshine Coast Tourist  Association (SCTA) made a  presentation to council on the  boat show; to be held in Vancouver February 2 to 10.  The SCTA has reserved four  booths for the Sunshine Coast,  at a cost' of $550 each, and it  was to request financial help  and support that Ms Langdon  appeared before council.  The lowly dogfish recently  renamed the 'salmon shark', is  to be one of the stars of the  show. Federal fisheries are supportive of moves to make the  'salmon shark' popular as a  sport fish, and to this end there  will be a fish-tank at the boat  show with a captive shark, as  well as a young man from the  world cooking festival who will  give demonstrations on how to  cook the fish rather than waste  it.  The matter was referred to  committee which decided at a  November 21 meetings to give  $200 towards the Sunshine  Coast display. j  A letter from 'Arthur  McPhee, area co-ordiriator for  the Sunshine Coast Emergency  Program brought some disappointing news; the provincial  government' has neglected to  sign the necessary memorandum of understanding with the  federal government which  would make funds from the  Joint Emergency Planning Program (JEPP) available for use  on the Sunshine Coast. What  this means to the community is  that a coast-wide communications system will be further  delayed.  "We were more or less counting on getting funding to do  this," said Alderman Ron  Neilson. "I feel a political protest should be made." He is also  meeting with local fire chiefs to  discuss the problem.  A letter was received by council from Valerie Silver, acting  project supervisor of the Sunshine Coast Economic Development   Society   (SCEDS)   re  questing support of council for  the newly developed aquaculture training project, which  will teach a variety of skills and  give hands-on experience to  those who plan to work in the  field of aquaculture.  The department of employment and immigration has been  approached by SCEDS for  funding from the First Chance  Funds, whereby youths aged  17-21, not yet in the work force,  receive training and on the job  experience.  Council agreed to the request  and a letter of support has been  forwarded to SCEDS.  Easthope dies  by Ona McGeough  Percy Williams Easthope  died recently in California aged  99 years.  Percy was born August 14,  1885 in Wolverhampton, Staffordshire, England. He came to  Canada at the age of four with  his family and they settled in the  New Westminster area. The  family consisted of six boys and  three girls.  His vvife" Mary Elizabeth  Easthope passed away in 1976.  Percy is survived by his  brother Arthur, who is 100  years old, a son Vincent and a  stepdaughter Ona, nieces and  nephews.  He attended Glad Tidings  Temple since 1955 and was a  great Bible scholar and Christian.  He was part of "Easthope  Brothers Marine Engines"  located on Georgia Street, in  Vancouver, who developed and  manufactured engines and the  business is still being operated  by a member of the family.  He was always very happy  and outgoing.  The Easthope family was also  responsible for the invention of  the safety-pin and the ballbearing, first used iri^he bicycle.  B.F.

I reiterated firmly,  "Saint Andrew's day will be here in a rnatter of seconds, then  it'll be Hogmanay and in January it's Bums' birthday. Perhaps  you could have it back in February."

Wash two or three leeks, two carrots, a small turnip and a  medium size head of cabbage. Chop and mix all together in a  basin. You now have a raw red, white and green salad. When  the mutton has been at the boil for an hour take the barley and  peas* which you remember, are already soaked and empty  them into the pot, then add the pile of chopped leeks, carrots,  turnip and cabbage. Give them a stir with a wooden spoon.  You are now well on the way. The soup must now boil for  another hour.

Take also a  carrot and grate it into a mush. Keep it ready on another dish.  At the end of the hour which had elapsed since the vegetables  were added, add the parsley and the grated carrot and stir  gently. In 15 minutes the soup will be ready.  Scotch Broth when properly made should be firm, yet not  too thick to stir with ease. When you dip down into it and take  out a spoonful you should find a representative selection of all  its ingredients in the spoon. There should be barley, peas,  cubes of carrot, turnip, pieces of leek and cabbage and a hint  of parsley. If not, the soup has been unfairly mixed and you  must try again until the symphony is perfect!!  Happy Saint Andrew's Day to all.

Time passes according to one's age,���if  you are a youngster, the big event approaches ever so slowly, for mummies and daddies time passes more quickly.  With this in mind, there is no time like the present to get  started on your Christmas plans and shopping.  One can safely predict that, in these times of continuing  economic caution, the wise merchant will not be carrying an  excessive inventory. The wise consumer, therefore will shop  early for best selection and more relaxed shopping. Where  very specific items are in mind it would be wise to place  orders now. This would apply particularly to clubs and  employers who tend to make bulk purchases of single items,  like turkeys, boxed chocolates, biscuits, candy canes. Mandarin oranges, etc., etc.  Speaking for ourselves, we would welcome early orders  from our patrons to enable us to better judge requirements,  and thereby give better service. We will give special discounts on bulk purchases not otherwise "on special", and  give special attention to such orders.  We commend the work of the voluntary food banks and  that of the voluntary group of workers for the needy at  Christmas each year, the "Elves Club". We can fully appreciate that the efforts of these groups will be especially  needed at this time. Let us resolve to spend a bit less on  ourselves, and donate some cash or food items to these  worthwhile organizations.  We will accept orders for, and provide free delivery of  case lots of items of your choice, or as appear to be needed  by either the local food bank or the Elves Club.  We urge you to plan now, and order early.  Gift certificates, in any denomination, are available and  recommended to meet the recipient's need.      S&kf  REAL WIN  ,|i/;%:  / vi  K.L.D.

He noted that the library  society is currently saving to  paint the exterior of the building  early next year, and said he had  offered the help of the village  works superintendent in refurbishing and mounting a sign on  the south wall of the building.  Craig commented on the  library's increasing circulation  and its directors' concern with  the increasing workload falling  on volunteers. Of the 41 library  associations in B.C., only the  Gibsons, Sechelt and Saltspring  Island libraries do not have any  paid help.  "Increasingly we're coming  to the end of the time when we  can rely on volunteers to run  our library," said Craig. "It  needs at least part-time paid  assistants. And it's inevitable^,  that council will be asked for increased grants." .,; >"  Alderman Craig suggested  that perhaps Gibsons and  Sechelt could share the services  of a- full-time professional  librarian.  ti^jjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjj^^jib^  YiiY\y{.'u&&u&j&iii2!����ilii&a&��������&  /4  JQibtombe&m Branch *109  i M  ii   \mammaamaam    i       r       Friday & Saturday  Knight  Shift  In, the Lounge  We wish to thank the community, businesses and  Legion members for their wonderful support to our  Remembrance Day Poppy Campaign and service  this year.  lt is sincerely appreciated.

Und&reaver-revww.  by Betty and Perry Kerry  Buying a book of short  stories has one advantage over  buying a novel: if the plot of  story number one doesn't appeal to you, you're free to move  on to number two or number  three, and you haven't wasted  the cash you invested on the  book. New:West Coast Fiction  published by Pulp Press contains 13 stories by west coast  writers and we fully enjoyed ten  of them. A pretty good invest  ment, this book.  One of our favourites was  Paul Yee's "Prairie Widow",  the story of a Chinese-Canadian  widow alone in a prairie town, a  deceptively simple examination  of the workings of day-to-day  racial prejudice in Canada.  In Helen Potrebenkos' "The  Nature of Social Constraints",  the reading follows the  outspoken heroine as she  tries���ahd fails���to find a mate  through the newspaper  'Per-  At the Arts Gerrtre  Noted writer  visits Centre  In   1969,   Timothy   Findley  published The Butterfly Plague,  a novel that Rex Reed called one  of the best books ever written  about Hollywood. Presuming  the author to be an American,  the Toronto distributors forwarded all of his fan mail to his  New York publishers, who in  turn re-addressed it to Findley,  who had lived in the Toronto  vicinity since 1930. Despite his  success abroad, Timothy  Findley seemed unable to gather  even hometown recognition.  Then, in 1977, Findley  vaulted into the limelight with  the publication of his third  novel, The Wars, a masterpiece  of style, for which he received  the Governor General's award.  There are now five novels to  Timothy Findley's credit, and  he is recognized as one of the  very best contemporary Canadian authors. On December 3,  at 8 p.m., Findley will read  from his latest novel at the Arts  Centre. It promises to be an exciting event. Tickets are $2 and  are available at usual locations.  A comedy film  Peter Greenaway's 1983 film,  The  Draughtsman's   Contract  has been described as a Restoration comedy, a Jacobean conceit and a formalist tease. A rising young artist (Anthony Hig-  gins) is hired to teticler 12 drawings of the estate of Mrs:  .Herbert, in exchange for her  sexual favours.  The film is a beautifully written fantasia of conceits about  perspective and the relationship  between the artist, his art, and  the world. It is also a victimization fantasy; the draughtsman,  a lover of landscape, is attacked  and destroyed by those who  love property.  Greenaway sees a movie as a  set of theorems to be  demonstrated by tableaux and  he manages this with consummate elegance and wit.  This is the last film in this  series. The new series will commence in January.  This film will be shown at the  Arts Centre, Wednesday,  November 28 at 8 p.m. Adults  $3.50, seniors and students  $2.50.

This, combined with their  varied subject matter of portraits,    figures,   landscapes,  flowers and fantasy make for a  very lively and diverse show.  This exhibition finishes on  December 2 and is the last show  at the Arts Centre for this year.  The 1985 exhibitions start on  January 9 with Masks and  Artifacts from Papua, New  Guinea.

The personals  are the last resort for this  woman who has "done all sorts  of things, both to avoid attention from men she thought were  dangerous and to attract attention from men she thought were  not;" but most of this zany  batch seem to be a threat to  themselves alone.  Two stories are from the  child's point of view. In Patricia  Robertson's "Counting"; a  nine year old tells of her father's  decision to take his family to  Canada to start a new life.  Brenda Riches catches the  marvellous inconsistencies and  half understood concepts of a  four year old in her story "The  Babysitter".  In his short biography at the  back of the book, Lion Rdoke  explains that his contribution���"Paintings, Water-  colours, Hand-Painted Flowers,  All You Can Carry, 25c"���was  the writerly outcome of having  no house roof for four very  rainy months while renovations  were going on. In his story the  ��� man and woman dissolve like  watercolours in the rain, a fate  most west coasters can empathize with.  Only a couple of the stories in  this collection are selfconsciously arty, and we commend the editors who chose this  collection for avoiding that pitfall. But we both felt that including three stories that delve  into the depths of female  depression was overdoing it a  bit.  On the whole, however, we  think the editors have placed a  varied feast before the reader,  and we've made mental note to  look for more writing by the  stars of New;West Coast Fiction.

However, after disembarking  from the dilapidated bus that  had brought us there, we were  both amazed at the modern  look of the city with its wide  streets and avenues all laid out  in neat patterns and most of  them converging onto park-like  squares that were lined with  trees and beautiful bushes  ablaze with colour. There were  numerous statues and fountains  and well-tended lawns with  stone benches for the weary to  rest upon or contemplate the  passing scene.  Our pressing need at the time  was' to get away from all these  chattering and apparently happy people, so we hailed a cab  and, in sign language, directed  the driver to take us to a hotel  where hopefully we could get  some sleep and recover from the  previous night's- excesses. He  seemed to understand but, after  a short journey of a few blocks,  he pulled up in front of a dingy  looking building with crumbling  plaster and peeling paint and  motioned for us to get out.  There were some slatternly  looking women sitting on the  porch and others upstairs leaning out of the windows. It was  only too obvious that he had  mistaken our directions and  brought us to a brothel and a  particularly squalid one at that.  Angrily we refused to get out  and I lit into him, waving my  arms and making motions that  we wanted something a lot more  classy than this dump he had  brought us to.  With a shrug of his shoulders  and a disappointed look on his  face, once again we took off  and this time, after quite a long  journey, when we came to a halt  ���Jwe had arrived at a real classy  hotel on the scale of the Hotel  Vancouver. I think it was called  the Prado Hotel and although  actually we-���didn-H -need -  anything quite so; pretentious,:  by this time we were so exhausted and our nerves so badly  frayed, we paid him off and  entered the imposing edifice.  I am not going into a long  description of the opulent surroundings in which we found  ourselves, but the foyer alone  was something to see with its  potted palms, glittering  chandeliers and velvet plush  seats - the whole bit. Also it  must be remembered that we  hadn't a single piece of luggage  nor did we look too prepossessing after that horrendous bus  ride. However, the very attractive young lady at the desk gave  us a dazzling smile that was  enhanced when we signed the  register and added S.S. Lake  Sicamous, Vancouver, Canada  to our signatures.  A bell-boy was on hand to  take us up to our room and  what a room it was - it was  almost a suite. It was beautifully  furnished with twin beds and a  bathroom with a sunken bath in  green tile. After we, had tipped  the boy, we managed to convey  to him that not only did we not  want to be disturbed but we  wanted some Aspirins for our  aching heads and in no time at  all he returned with them.  We each took a hot bath to  remove some of the grime we  had collected on that filthy bus  then tumbled gratefully into our  beds. I imagine by this time it  would be around 2 p.m., and  we slept right through until 7  p.m. Mercifully our headaches  were gone and we were now in  shape to commence the  evening's activities.  Ringing for room service, the  same boy came up but on our  ordering "pisco" with a beer  for a chaser he shook his head  disapprovingly and made it obvious that this was no drink for  gentlemen; he would bring us  something more refined, which  turned out to be a bottle of  Chilean brandy and excellent  stuff it was. Now after a few  drinks we felt famished so we  went down to the dining-room  and what i consider to be one of  the finest meals I have ever  eaten, appetizers, soup, steak  and dessert. They were all  fabulous. Now for some action  on the female front!  We had approached our bellboy on this subject but he made  it-clearthat the hotel would not ��  permit any shenanigans of this:  kind, nor did they tolerate prostitutes on their premises, so  that was out. He did, however,  give us the address of another  hotel where these ladies of the  evening congregated so, grabbing a cab, we lit out for there.  I am unfortunately unable to  to.give you an account of all  that subsequently went on during the evening as I am certain  the Editor of this paper  wouldn't print it. Let us say "a  good time was had by all" and  leave it at that.  Anyway, we made it back to  our hotel in the early hours of  the morning and, leaving a  wake-up call at the desk for  10:30 a.m., once again we  tumbled into bed. On arising,  neither of us were hungry but  we did have a crusty roll and  coffee sent up and we each put a  generous slug of brandy into  our coffee to fortify us for the  return bus journey.  Now comes the amazing part  of this whole story. When we  descended into the foyer and  went up to the desk to settle our  bill a new girl, equally as  beautiful as the one we had seen  on the previous day, was on duty. Although she spoke only the .  odd word of English she  managed to convey to us that  there was no bill - it was all  taken care of! This we couldn't  comprehend so she ended up by  fetching either the manager or  one of his assistants who was  equally as adamant that there  was no bill - it had been all fixed  up.  At the time we were completely in a daze over this - staying at such a posh hotel, enjoying room service and a scrumptious dinner and no charge. It  was unbelievable, but later pn  when we had time to sort things  out we heard that the Chilean  newspapers had played up the  story pf Canada's generosity in  their wheat giving and this was  this particular hotel's way of  saying thank you to two Canadians.  Before leaving we did manage  to press a 500 peso note into the  hand of the bell-boy who had  served us so well but at the rate  of exchange that was only a trifle over $10. To this day I still  fondly recall that visit to Santiago ;-i Even c the rigours > of the v>  bus trip there and back failed to  obliterate the surprising reception we were given and never in  my sailing days has it been  repeated or equalled.  Suncoast Players thoroughly captivated their young audience last Saturday with iheir zany improvisations of tried-and-true fairy tales and untried-and-untrue creations on the spot. -fmh Bumd* photo  Sechelt Garden Club  The annual meeting of the  club was held on November 7 at  which time the chairman of the  Nominating Committee  presented a slate of officers for  the coming year. Details are as  follows: honorary president,  Mr. Frank Read; president,  Barry Willoughby; vice-  president, Paul Roth; treasurer,  Andrew Steele; recording  secretary, Bernice Devlin;  general secretary, Lou Wilson.  Directors are Holmes Gardener,  Joan Scales, and Allison Steele.  Joan Scales will also be our new.  bulletin editor.  Ian. Johnson has put out the  bulletin for a long time and he  (and Mrs. Johnson) have done a  magnjfieent job. To them, our  thanks and gratitude are extended. ;M"  The club has a policy to keep  our rneetings geared to garden  topick but at this month's  meeting we deviated somewhat  by having Ted Peters tell us,  mainly by slides, about his exchange year in Britain and  Europe.  This exchange idea is so  meritorious that we should encourage it as a part of employ-  merit. Teachers are a group that  use it more than most others.  But to get back to the Peters'  family and their rewarding time  overseas. They did take slides of  some splendid gardens, but the  real thrust of the. "show and  tell" revealed that Mr. and Mrs.  and family used their weekends  and holiday times to the greatest  extent. They Came home  refreshed and rewarded and are  how sharing that experience  with us.  Mr. Peters is a probation officer, and his place here was filled by a person from the court  system in England.  The Christmas patty will be  held on Friday, December 14 in  the Seniors Hall. Space will be  provided for donations to the  food bank.  Cap College seeks  instruments  The Capilano College Music  Therapy program is once again  asking for donations of used  musical instruments, in any  condition, for use in music  therapy practicums.       '  This is the second instrument  drive held by the program,  which last year received over 70  instruments, including organs,  guitars, violins, recorders, mandolins, accordians, drumsets,  autoharps, and ohe-of-a-kind  instruments. These are now in  use with hospitalized people of  all ages in the Lower Mainland.  With   student   practicums  coming up, the program is once  again asking people to check in  their   basements,   cupboards,  . and attics for musical instruments that aren't being used, and donate them to the program. -They can be dropped off  at the college, or students will  come to pick them up (m the  Vancouver area).

The Peanut and Pup players  sponsored by Bumper to  Bumper, Big Mac's and Legion  140, are again emphasizing their  skating skills. An interesting  comment came out of the recent  hockey school for the UBC instructors on the proficient  skating ability of these Peanuts  and Pups. Credit was given to  their skating program of last  winter.  The referee's clinic and  followup evaluation is now  finished. A large number of  people achieved their Level I  and Level II reffing certificates.  New players are still signing  up for minor hockey. Any boys  and girls still interested should  do so before the end of  November.  Strikes & Spares  o.  by Bud Mulcaster  K*  K  V  K  \��  v*  A slow week for 300 games.

Bill is a skip in the Super  League in Haney and had Lee  Smith with him as third, Bob  Mengering'as second ahd Foster  Huet as lead. They defeated the  Thomson rink from Powell  River in the "A" final, with the  Ron Baba rink placing third in  the "A" and the Ken Skytte  rink fourth,  The "B" event was won by a  junior team from Burnaby. The  Willock rink travelled to Gibsons to check out the ice for the  upcoming Junior Boys Zone  playdowns in January; they will  be very tough competition. Second in the "B" was the Leppre  rink from Vancouver.  Two local teams fought for  the "C" event with the Roger  Hocknell rink beating out Larry  Penonzek's rink for the trophy.  Mai Habkirk's rink from the  North Shore Winter Club  defeated Norm Cartwright's  Delta rink for the "D" event.  We would like to take this  opportunity to thank the sponsors of these events: Cedars  Plaza for the "A", Cedars Inn  for the "B", Smitty's" Marina  for the "C" and Kits Cameras  for the "D". Your continued  support is most appreciated.  Also a big thank you to all the  ladies who helped in the kitchen  and behind the bar.  A reminder that the Ladies  Club Spiel is December 8 so get  your name up now to avoid  cancellation!  by Ruth Forrester, 885-2418  One of the most interesting  Halfmoon Bay happenings for  these past few weeks has been  watching the salmon trying to  head up the creek from the bay  to their spawning place.  The poor things are having a  really tough time getting up  there since the route was changed by some work done by  highways and only the very  strong stand a small chance of  making it. It's really a very sad  sight and somehow there are so  many more this year trying to  make it.  It would appear to a mere lay  person like myself- that  something should be done to  make it possible for these  creatures to be able to follow  their natural instincts without  man made hazards being placed  in their way.  A NARROW ESCAPE  John and May Parsons of  Redrooffs were lucky to escape  with their lives in a dramatic accident last week down in  Arizona. A gas line in their  camper bus exploded and John  received third degree burns on  this arms and legs while May  escaped with minor burns.  Their beautiful bus was totally  destroyed. John in is hospital in  Tuscon and word is that he will  be OK.  Some of our local snowbirds  may be heading down that way  in the near future and may wish  to visit with John and May so I  will pass on May's present address. Or if you feel you would  like to send some good wishes  their way the address is c/o  Justin Waterworld, Joaquin,  Tuscon, Arizona, 85746.  The Parsons had renovated a  Greyhound bus and had put  many hours of labour in to  create a really delightful winter  home, only to see it destroyed.  The same thing happened to  their home a few years ago  when it was totally gutted by  fire. Our thoughts are with  them and good wishes for a  speedy recovery go out to John'.  CELEBRATE CHRISTMAS  There will.be lots of opportunities for Halfmoon Bay folks  to get into the spirit of  Christmas at Welcome Beach  Hall. First of all you are cordially invited to join in an evening with Nikki Weber and the  kids of the Mini Mob when they  have an evening of fun and  singing on Friday, December 7  starting at around 7 p.m. You  can join, the kids in some carol  singing and enjoy a really happy  evening. ,  Then the next night,  December 8, is the Welcome  Beach annual Christmas dinner  where you-can dine, sing but a  few carols then dance the night  away.

The  pupils of Halfmoon Bay school  are busy practising for their  Christmas party for family and  friends, to be held in the hall pn  the evening of December 20.  You are all welcome to join in  on that evening too.  Egmont    News  Life in slow lane  by Ann Cook, 883-9167  Life in the slow lane seems to  be the news for this last week of  November. Everywhere I go I  meet friends who have just been  laid off their jobs or will be  before Christmas. Even the  Rock Cod have laid the  fishermen off, without notice or  offering UIC benefits.  Maybe we are just laying low  for a short spell before we get  into frantic Christmas shopping  and our plans for the Happy  Holiday. By the flyers in the  mailbox they are trying to hype  us up to TAKE ADVANTAGE  of their specials.  BITS AND PIECES  Good to see the tennis court  being used every day, not only  after school but at 8:30 a.m.  when some of the children arrive early to play. Bet if the  court had a light it would be in  use on Friday and Saturday  evenings. Next on the list is a  winter works grant. It's just  happening, I'll keep you posted.  Next.time you see me, stop  me, and tell me you would like  to join the Egmont Community  Club and I'll sign you up and  tell you all the good things you  can do for. our community. We  need a soccer coach, craft instructors, a fitness honcho,  volunteer drivers, and, more  children. Any volunteers?  TIMMY'S WEEK  November 26 to December 2  has been declared "Timmy's  Week". The Pender Harbour  Lions Club is putting on a dance  this Saturday, December 1 for  Timmy's Christmas Telethon,  music by "The Sunshine  Ramblers".  The Lions also have an  afghan raffle happening.

The tone of the meeting was  very upbeat and accentuated a  positive approach rather than  the critical attitude so easy to  fall: into when discussing the  youth of the community.  There was a discussion of  some of the limitations of living  in a semi-rural community,  especially the problem of  transportation to Gibsons and  Sechelt for swimming, movies,  skating and\ after-school activities. The possibility of compiling a list of people willing to  drive occasionally was brought  up but nobody volunteered to  organize such a scheme.  The mini-bus is a partial  answer but it stops running too  early in the day. Brett  McGillivray said the regional  board is trying to get a second  bus and pepple should write to  the Urban Transport Authority  stating the need for more service.  Joan Cowderoy emphasized  the teenager's need for opportunities to contribute to society.  The Youth Volunteer Program  has kids working in the Kiwanis  home, the hospital, and day  care centres to give them some  experience to prepare them for  the working world.  The success of the Tuesday  night Teen Club at the legion  led to a discussion of other ac-  Drop off your  COAST NEWS  Books A Stuff  Sechen  until noon Saturday  tivities that could be organized  for the kids, especially if they  v could be run by the kids  themselves. Sports, dances,  theatre, movies,, and skating  parties were some^of the suggestions and it was mentioned that  the Community Hall and the  Joint Use Facility at the school  are both available for such  things. It was agreed that  weekend nights and Sunday  afternoons were the times the  kids need something to do.  A committee was struck to  look into the matter to find out  what the kids themselves would  like and would be willing to help  set up. There was a lot of enthusiasm for the plans among  the people who attended the  meeting and it's to be hoped  that other people will join in to  help when asked.  FIESTA NIGHT  . It's Fiesta Night with "Los  Tropicales" this Friday,  November 30, at the Roberts  Creek Community Hall. Mexican food will be served and  children are allowed until 9  p.m. when the dance with  "Marvin and the Marvels"  starts.  Tickets for the dance are $5  each and are available at the  usual outlets, including Seaview  Market. Proceeds go to  Nicaragua for the Tools for  Peace project.  BINGO SATURDAY  This is your last chance to  buy your ticket for the Roberts  Creek volunteer fire department's annual bingo. The grand  prize is $1000 and tickets are $5  each. The bingo starts at 8 p.m.  at the Community Hall this  Saturday, December 1, but  doors open at 6 p.m.  LEGION BURSARY  The Legion does a lot of  things for the community that  people don't know about. One  example is the scholarships and  bursaries provided to local  students.  The Roberts Creek Legion  gives awards of $250 to two  Elphinstone graduates every  year and is sending a student to  the Terry Fox Camp in Ottawa  in March. They also sponsored  Marion Passmore for a bursary  of $1000. In accepting the  award on behalf of his daughter  at the Legion's last general  meeting, Mr. Passmore expressed appreciation for this nice  contribution.  POOL WINNER  Gord Ross was the lucky winner in the Grey Cup pool at the  legion. Better luck next time to  the rest of you.  ASTRONOMERS  Don van Kleek, grade seven  teacher at Roberts Creek  elementary, is setting up an  astronomy program to take  place around December 10. He  is looking for any amateur (or  professional) astronomers out  there who'd like to give an hour  or two of their time at the  school. Call 885-9229 Monday  to Friday if you're able to help  out.  BEER AND WINE RESULTS  The results of the annual beer  and wine tasting competition  held November 24 at the  Roberts Creek Legion are as  follows: Light Beer - 1st, Steve  Sleep; 2nd, Dawn and Stella;  3rd, Don and Nell Holland.

The licensee will  provide all the equipment required, will pay $100 per month  to the arena for rent and will  make the service available  whenever the arena is open for  ice use until the end of the arena  season.  "This should be helpful to  skaters," commented arena  committee chairman Graham  Craig, who noted that the service may be expanded to include  the sale of such things as hockey  stick tape.  Negotiations are underway  for the organization of mid-size  hockey tournaments in January  and February. Up to eight  teams would travel from Vancouver and the lower mainland  to the Sunshine Coast, and  Alderman Craig noted that, in  addition to revenue from ice  rentals and snack bar sales at  the arena, the arrival in Sechelt  of some 144 hockey players and  their friends would be a boost to  local motel and restaurant  operations.  Note: The arena will be closed from December 23 to  January 3. "It's not practical to  keep it open during the  holidays, " commented Alderman Craig, who added that in  all likelihood there would be  scheduled a free public skate.

We all wish Amy a speedy  recovery. Twenty-four members  were present, as well as Hans  Grossman, and we were pleased  to welcome two new members,  Shirley Nygren and Celia Meda,  We were all glad to learn that  our bazaar had been a great success and it has given us a good  start on our funds towards the  mini-bus. Several donations to  this fund were gratefully received. The prize winners at the  bazaar were: 1st Prize, Barry  Stein; 2nd and 3rd Prizes, Debbie Saunders.  It was decided that we would  have an annual bazaar every  November, and this would be  one of our main fund raising  events of the year.  Our next meeting will be a  dinner meeting at Pronto's  Restaurant on Wednesday,  December 12. Happy Hour at  6:30 and dinner at 7 o'clock.  We were all sad to learn that  Marg Perry is moving from the  area. She has been a wonderful  helper in so many ways over the  years, not the least being that of  filling the position of treasurer.  We were most fortunate to have  Judy Holding volunteer to fill  her position. We all wish Marg  happiness in her new home.  We will be assisting to  decorate the Care Centre on  Thursday, December 13 at 7  p.m., and all members are  welcome to give the Home a  festive atmosphere.

What a-  great idea for a recession raddled community!  Many of the lovely dresses,  jackets, hand-knit sweaters and  leather purses are ones we could  not or would not have afforded  had we gazed wistfully at them  in their original elegant setting  at Park Royal or Pacific Centre.  Good wool, cotton, silk and  leather are priced out of sight  and when you add design and  manufacture you're running  nicely into the hundreds which  is just out of my league plus tax.  When buying an expensive outfit the tax always seems to be  the final blow. Second-time-  around fashions are tax free.  With reasonable prices and  no tax one can afford to take  the odd risky flyer with  something slightly outrageous in  either colour or design. Someone else has taken the  original risk and yours is discounted, greatly discounted.  After all fashion is supposed to  be both fun and exciting. Facing  a wet and miserable winter it's  great sometimes not to feel you  must be practical. At less than  one quarter the original price  you can afford that neon raincoat or purple cape because you  don't have to wear it all the  time.  Shopping in thrift shops is no  longer considered declasse.  Now it is considered to be lively  and clever, as well as smart  business. Purses and shoes,  gloves, scarves and jewellery,  coats, dresses and children's  outfits, all can be yours at prices  you'll love. With the kids just  think of blue-jeans alone and  their soaring prices.  For    children's    clothes,  purses, raincoats and the odd  appliance St. Mary's Hospital  Thrift Store in Sechelt is splendid, as it is for some unexpected  absolutely  marvellous  fashion  goodies.     Everything     is  generously   donated   by   the  hospital auxiliary.and friends,  .with the money g$ing toa good  j cause. Everyone b^effts'/*^-**^-  ���    The Cat's Whiskers in lower  Gibsons is d��place which the  wise shopper will case weekly.  Their prices are incredibly low  and they support the spay clinic  in an attempt to arrest the  animal population explosion. I  have discovered some great  hand-knit sweaters there.  Across Marine Drive the  Tussie-Mussie is marvellous for  farout, slightly madcap creative  silks and prints.  In Sechelt again, just before  the blinking light; set back in a  mobile home is the Second  Look Boutique which is so  beautifully arranged that, unless  told, you would never imagine it  to be anything but a lovely first  rate shop. Which, of course it  is, but it also is both secondhand and new.  Loretta Copping and Kay  Kwasnycia have great flair for  setting up display arrangements;  They drape gorgeous scarves  with stunning jewellery across a  gossamer hand-knit sweater jn  the slightly open drawer of an  antique breakfront. Their  fashion sense is flawless and  their collective memory long. It  is both flattering and rather  charming to be called about an  item which they really feel you  would like and to discover that  they are usually right.  Don't go into Second Look  looking tacky. They want us to  look better dressed and will accept no excuses. (Well I'm on  my way home now), "Doesn't  matter...tuck that other pant leg  into your boot, both out or both  in." They scour the lower  mainland for wonderful clothes  and they are both very helpful.  It really is my favourite shopping spot much as I hate to give  away any secrets.  So do yourself a favour and  make a regular run around the  "worn again" fashion centres,  have yourself a fling and pick  up something you would  NEVER buy at first time prices.

Naturally, B.C. New  Democrats are encouraged by  the strong showing in both  ridings and by the addition of  two talented MLAs to our  caucus.  Okanagan North has broken  a 32-year string of Social Credit  representation. They have  elected a young capable New  Democrat MLA, Lyle Mac-  William.  Mr. MacWilliam will be an  effective voice for the central interior region of the province.  This area has been referred to as  the heart of Social Credit country, because of the number of  Socred members returned over  the years.  Unfortunately, a certain  complacency may have  developed in Social Credit.  Many observers have felt that  Social Credit has taken the  region for granted.  Local issues were an important part of the by-election in  Okanagan North. But there is  also a message of province-wide  significance.  People are concerned about  the poor and negative performance of the B.C. economy and  by'the actions of a government  which has contributed to the  severity of the downturn.  ^ This is something that affects  everybody in the province, in  every region and every age  group.  The Vancouver East riding,  on the other hand, has tended to  vote NDP over the years. It is  interesting, however, to note  that Social Credit ran third in  the riding at 16 per cent of the  popular vote.  While there is no surprise in  the outcome, surely the:  magnitude of the defeat must  cause Social Credit to rethink its  policy and program.  There is some evidence that  the government is rethinking  basic policies. It has failed to  call the legislature in session for  the past six months. The house  will not likely sit until next year  sometime.  Hopefully, the message of the  by-elections will be understood  by government and the government will pursue a more  moderate line in the new year.

Depot - Holy Family Church  Hall, Saturday, December 8.  ��� MISC SERVICES ���  >GRD discusses  The Sunshine Coast Regional  District board meeting on  November 22 considered a full  agenda with much of the emphasis on the future of the  Economic Development Commission.  A delegation was on hand  from the EDC, comprising  Russell Crum, Irene Lugsdin,  and Don Hoops to present to  the board proposals for 1985.  Two main issues are to be considered; firstly, whether the  function of the EDC is to continue as of April 30, 1985, fully  supported by the SCRD and the  two municipalities, and secondly, is the proposed budget acceptable?  The EDC seems to be a very  large expenditure, and one  question which arises is whether  it will have to be supported by  local funding forever. Russell  Crum, chairman of the EDC,  addressed this, "I see SCEDS  (Sunshine Coast Employment  Development Society) moving  more to local corporation  status, modelled after  Nanaimo. As such it would  receive grants, and start taking  over costs. This will cost the  tax-payer less and less."  Director Ian Vaughan raised  the point that there are approximately 1,000 persons unemployed on the Sunshine  Coast, and that the amount of  money being asked for by the  EDC is considerably less than  the amounts being spent on  unemployment insurance  benefits and welfare, and will  hopefully bring jobs to this  community.  Mayor Joyce Kolibas said  Sechelt supported the EDC but,  "I don't know yet where the  money is going to come from,"  she said.  Director   John   Burnside  presented the Gibsons view,  "Gibsons feels much as Sechelt  does. The function has just cut  its teeth, it should come to  maturity this year. I feel it  deserves council's support."  Aside from the financial considerations which must be faced  by all local governments, there  is also the question of the direction to be taken by the EDC in  1985.  "Before we agree to the  budget there must be more  discussion about the direction  policy will take. I might then  feel more comfortable about the  increases I see from the 1983  figures," said Director Brett  McGillivray. "There's been a  lack of communication between  the EDC and SCRD which I  would like to see remedied," he  went on.  It was agreed that the EDC  creates a base of support to the  people of the community, and  there has been considerable progress in the 2Vi years since its  inception. The recent LEAD  grant has given hopes that an  economic strategy will be worked out.  Irene Lugsdin expressed the  hope that there will be a five  year plan in place by the end of  1985 with one year screened and  ready to go in the very near  future.  "I think this will make us  more accountable to you  (SCRD) and to the public," she  said.  The board will make a decision by the end of November.

Send resume to-Box 1736, Merritt,  B.C.  #48  Editor:  I saw a short skit of the Jack  Webster show on the news,  Monday, November 5. He was  hosting a forum who were  discussing the subject of capital  punishment versus the abolition  of the death penalty. If the majority have their way, society  will have nothing further to  look forward to than more  policemen and prison guards  being senselessly murdered,  women raped and beaten,  young children abducted, sexually molested, killed and  dumped at no extra cost to the  perpetrators.  I feel that the former government, in abolishing capital  punishment, has cruelly betrayed society. Instead of  legislating according to a high  moral standard of ethics, they  have let the bleeding hearts in  society have the last say and  now we are in a state of moral  decay with crimes of rape and  murder constantly on the increase.  The criteria by which former  legislators arrive at conclusions  regarding capital punishment is  that it is barbaric and immoral.  Let it be known right here and  now that the highest attainment  of moral standards that will  never be outdated nor diminished in the quest for fairness,  comes from the Bible, God's  word.  The higher echelon of our  society, the law makers, undoubtedly look with much disdain at what God has arrived at  to government, e.g. the Ten  Commandments, so simplistic,  yet so righteous and fair. Our  ^society has fallen so far from  the standard of "do unto others  as you would have others do unto you" that to entertain such a  thought is considered foolishness and passe.  No one in all foregoing years  has ever, nor ever shall come up  with a higher standard than:  "do not steal, do not commit  adultery, do not lust, do not  murder", etc., a simplistic list  of 10 commandments that ironically require over a million laws  to endorce -when relegated to .  modern society.  I hope I have portrayed a  standard of excellence ih my  reference to the commandments, and if so, I would at this  point like to interject that the  same God, the author of the Bible, also stated in Leviticus  24:17 - "and he that killeth any  man shall surely be put to  death". Again, in ; Numbers  35:16, 17, 18, 21, 30, 31 - "the  murderer shall surely be put to  death".  When we ignore God's rules  of life, we subject ourselves to  the moral decadence that is all  around us and is getting out of  hand.  Our prisons are bursting at  the seams, they have become a  refuge for the worst kind of  killers and a school of crime to  the mediocre type of convict.  What chance has the simple  thief got of being rehabilitated  and returned to society after he  has been tutored by such as  Clifford Olsen and a host of  others like him?  Also, on TV recently was.a  discussion about prisons with  penal authorities. Prisons allow  the inmates to watch , porn  movies and read whatever por  nographic books and magazines  they choose with no restrictions  at all. We are not only permitting the murderers to live in luxury in our modern prisons at  $30,000 per inmate per year, but  are supplying the catalyst that  will cause an erotic eruption  that will effect every walk of  society.  When policemen begin to  demonstrate en masse to have  capital punishment reinstated  because they are afraid for their  own safety, then it's time we  reassessed the whole sordid  mess and get back to God's type  of justice.  I think that the gallows and  the electric chair are barbaric  tools of execution and should be  done away with. I suggest an execution take place in the quiet  solitude of a room without fanfare and by lethal injection, the  prisoner being sedated  beforehand.  Are we going to continue to  cater to the foolishness that now  exists or are we going to rise up  against the old Liberal government's folly of the past 16 years  and put a stop to killing?  Norman C. Stewart  Gibsons, B.C.  Craig's correction  Editor:  Re: Your issue of November 19,  1984.  On page 12 of this issue of  your paper, in a brief article  headed "Hockey League in Difficulty" the lead sentence reads  "Increased arena levies  and...are threatening the existence of the four-team  league." ���  This statement is incorrect.  Arena charges for ice rental in  the various categories are unchanged from last year's rates.  The arena management,  which I supervise, is painfully  aware that ice rental rates now  being charged are for all practical purposes as high as the  traffic will bear. The lowering  of these rates is the most immediate of the problems facing  management, and it is hoped  that substantial savings in  Hydro power bills will enable  arena management to pass that  benefit on to the user groups in  1985.  In the meantime I would appreciate your publishing this letter in a forthcoming issue to  correct your unfortunate misstatement.  Graham Craig  Alderman  Baha'is persecuted  Editor:  Manyeh Azizi's husband,  Jalal, was executed with seven  other members of the National  Spiritual Assembly of the  Baha'is of Iran, because of this  religious beliefs.  The Iranian regime to this  date has denied recognition of  the Baha'i faith as a religion  and is undertaking the  systematic persecution and execution of the Baha'is in Iran.  Baha'is are being falsely acc-  cused of spying for Israel,  because of their support of the  Baha'i World Centre in Haifa,  Israel. Yet if a Baha'i recants his  faith, he is allowed to live.  Baha'is are considered to be  heretics because of their beliefs  in the unity of mankind, world  peace,   equality  of men  and  women, universal education,  progress and scientific development and unity of all religion.  Citizens of all countries  should be aware of what is going on in Iran. The Iranian  regime must not be allowed to  carry out these executions in  secret.  The Canadian parliament  was the first legislature to bring  to the attention of the United  Nations the violation of human  rights taking place in Iran.  The Canadian Baha'i community appreciates the efforts  of the Canadian parliament and  United Nations in trying to induce Iran to respect minimal  standards of human decency  and human rights.  Sunshine Coast Bahai's  Michael satisfied  Editor:  Not withstanding the fact  that I was not elected last Saturday, I am very satisfied with the  outcome, and would like to take  this opportunity to outline the  reasons why.  I am proud to have obtained  support from 38 per cent of the  voters and am gratified by the  amount of people who worked  very long and hard supporting  me during the campaign.  There is also quite a lot of  satisfaction in knowing that existing council members are mak  ing progress on some of the  issues that I raised in the campaign.  It was an honour to take part  in this year's aldermanic race,  especially as all the candidates  ran on their own merits without  running down each other.  I will close then by wishing  Messrs. Marshall and Peterson  a successful two years and  thanking those who supported  me, from the bottom of my  heart.

Last week's winner was Joanna McOermid of P.O. Box 5, Sechelt, who correctly located the  pictured deer in the Mosier lawn in Selma Park.  Gibsons support  The major issue at the Gibsons Committee-of-the-Whole  meeting on November 21 was  the Economic Development  Commission (EDC) and its  future on the Sunshine Coast.  Alderman Ron Neilson, Gibsons' representative at the EDC,  presented to the committee the  proposed budget for the coming  year. The provincial funding  which has until now supported  the commission cuts off on May  1, 1985, and if the office is to  continue it will have to be funded locally.  "The figures have increased  over 1984 levels," said Alderman Neilson. "Gibsons pays  9.1 per cent of the total, which  will mean approximately  $11,000 out of a $120,000  budget."  In further discussions, Alderman John Burnside made the  point that the area from  Roberts Creek to Port Mellon  has been somewhat neglected by  the commissioner although it  provides 55 per cent of the EDC  budget. It has been suggested by  Russell Crum, chairman of the  EDC, that were the commissioner to have an office  available in Gibsons one day  each week the situation may improve. The committee found no  problem with this suggestion.  A further criticism of the  function is that until now there  have been no guidelines for the  commissioner to follow, but the  recent LEAD grant of $50,385  to explore job creation in the  community seems likely to  make strategy a priority and  hence provide guidance for the  commissioner.  Alderman Burnside continued, "I would be in favour of  supporting it (EDC) if we can.  On balance we might benefit  from the EDC continuing  through 1985. However, this  would not have been the case  had we not been reassured that  the tank farm is still on the  books.  "I think the incumbent commissioner has achieved a great  deal; he has raised the consciousness of the whole country  concerning fish farming and  been  very successful  at  pro  moting it here," he said.  A lengthy report is currently  being readied to give a rundown  on what has happened in the  last two years, reported Alderman Neilson. "With the planning money available, in 1985  we should be able to evaluate  what has happened."  Because  of the confidence  placed in the members of the  Commission,   Irene/ Lugsdin,  Russell    Crum    and    Barry  Wilbee, and because it was felt  that   two   years   is   not   long  enough to be able to assess what  is frequently long-range planning,   the   Committee-of-the-  Whole decided  to co-operate  with funding for the year, and  then to take a long hard look at  the EDC's achievements.  \The Gibsons/Area E boundary dispute which has been  lingering on for some months  has finally reached a stage  where consultation and negotiation take the place of confrontation:  Several recent meetings,  beginning with the November  14 Elphinstone Electors' Association meeting, and culminating  at the November 22 Sunshine  Coast Regional District Board  meeting have brought the two  sides of the dispute together in a  constructive way. At the first  meeting, the Elphinstone Electors had as their guests regional  director of planning Jim  Johnstone, regional chairman  Jim Gurney, chairman of planning and Area D director Brett  McGillivray, aldermen John  Burnside and Ron Neilson and  Gibsons planner Rob Buchan.  All addressed the audience  and answered the many questions which arose. The main  point to come out of the  meeting was the need for consultation. Director McGillivray  said, "This continual bickering  must stop; we need to cooperate on all levels of management and present a united face  to Victoria. We must come  together on this and I think we  will."  Although Area E director,  Chairman Jim Gurney was still  reluctant to agree with the Gibsons compromise which would  present only two properties for  inclusion into the town, the  general feeling was that cooperation was a priority and a  solution had to be found.  At the November 15 SCRD  Planning Committee meeting  the discussions continued.  Director McGillivray suggested  to the board that there are two  Gurney reports  on SCRD year  Chairman Jim Gurney  presented his 1984 report in  which he cited several substantial accomplishments for the  SCRD, including the acquisition of Coopers Green for a  public park and of land for the  Pender Harbour golf course.  Other parks including Ruby  Lake, and Madeira Park ranger  station have also been acquired.  1985 promises to be a busy  year for the SCRD; settlement  plans will need a great deal of  work, the Sechelt sewer system  financing should be addressed,  waste management will have  priority, and the regional  district will have to look to thlei  problem of office space as their  present lease expires late iri the  year.  The chairman concluded by  saying the he felt 1984 has been  a most positive year for the  board, due to "the determination of both the board and the  staff to serve the community to  the best of pur ability...I must  thank both the board and the  staff for their support.  Electric kettles  are recalled  Owners of Toastess electric  kettles, model number 750,  should check to make sure there  is no water leakage from the  bottom of the unit, according to  Canadian Standards Association.  If any water leakage is evident, owners should immediately stop using the kettles. The  manufacturer requests that the  units be returned either to the  retail outlets where they were  purchased or to the following  address for replacement:  Toastess Inc., 815 Tecumseh  Street, Pointe Claire, Quebec  H9R 4B1.  CSA advises that as a result  of a manufacturing defect,  water can enter the base of the  unit causing the electrical connections to corrode, creating a  shock hazard.  In Sechelt Marsh  Beavers baffle brains  Continued from page 1  child could spring it and be injured. And he knows of only  one other place where there is  sufficient alder and food for the  beavers to survive, and that's on  Thormanby Island in an area  which has just been declared  parkland. He's not sure how the  introduction of a species not indigenous to the island .would be  accepted by the parks board.  Stephen said he will not be  actively dealing with the beaver  situation until his time is less  constrained by the demands of  the hunting season, which ends  in two weeks. He also noted the  irony of moving and protecting  animals as prolific as beavers  when the season which allows  trapping them for their pelts  soon begins.  .Stephen said that he would be  most happy if the Marsh Society  would take on the beavers as a  project, but he understands the  group has decided against purchasing  a live trap,  and  he  would not allow the use of his  trap by them unless it was  supervised 24 hours a day.  "These poor little things  don't have any place in civilization," he said. "They can't coexist in a human community.  We need to take a hard look at  whether we should be preservationists, saving things at all  costs, or conservationists,  enhancing and developing  nature."  specific areas to concentrate on,  the first being the need for a cooperative policy between the  SCRD and the town of Gibsons, and the second being the  consideration of the controversial Block 6, the Mitten/Childs  property adjacent to Gospel  Rock.  Gibsons proposes a two year  time frame for the consideration of. any properties which  may be proposed for entry into  the town, in order to avoid the  piece meal approach that has so  irritated the ministry of  municipal affairs in the past.  Gibsons has also devised a  policy which would provide a  set of criteria for accepting properties.  After a great deal of discussion the Committee of the  Whole (Planning) recommended that the regional board meet  with the town of Gibsons and  the village of Sechelt for general  discussions on the municipal  boundary revision policy.  As for the second area of  consideration, the Block 6 ques  tion, the main problem appeared to be the question of  safety for residents situated  below the property. It was  pointed out by Director John  Burnside that the Gibsons portion of the property where  Gospel Rock is situated is zoned  ,by the town to a two acre  holding zone, whereas the piece  within the regional jurisdiction  is zoned for quarter acre lots, a  much Higher density with possible effects on drainage. It was  agreed however that having the  two adjacent properties under  one jurisdiction would be  desirable. ^  Director Jon McRae joined  the discussion: "The approving  officer (Planner Rob Buchan  for the town of Gibsons) can be  sued for faults in a subdivision  for which he approved the  plans. Lord help him if he signs  something that is no good! I  believe he (Planner Buchan) is  capable of looking after .our  concerns."  It was finally recommended  by Director McRae that the  revision of the town of Gibsons  boundary be accepted by the  board to include the Copping  and Mitten properties if the  ministry of municipal affairs  and the town of Gibsons wish it  so.  Both recommendations were  accepted at the SCRD board  meeting on November 22 much  to the relief of all concerned:  Honours  Congratulations to the  following students who have  been named to the Honour Roll  at Pender Harbour secondary  for the first term of the 1984-85  school year: grade 11, John  Griffith and Mike Phillips;  honourable mention, Karen  Meyer; grade 10, honourable  mention, Vicki Wilkinson;  grade eight, honourable mention, Diane Bryant, Cherie  Cochet, Lisa Haddock, Jennifer  Jones, Jodee Lowings, Kathy  Mills, and Marci Phillips.
