"There's lots  of misinformation floating  around."  Two major changes took place  in July. Sunshme Coast Community Services Society (SCCSS) director Jim McDowell placed Harfield  in charge of the volunteer-run service. After discussions with  Unemployed Action Centre (UAQ  co-ordinator Priscilla Brown, Harfield and McDowell moved the  food distribution outlet from St.  Bartholomew's Church Hall to the  UAC.  "We had sound reasons for both  changes," says McDowell. "Community Services administers the  food bank and we thought it had  drifted away from its original purpose. So we asked Kasandra to  take over."  Shifting to the UAC was Harfield 's idea. "It makes sense to link  services for the unemployed," she  says. "Most Action Centres in  B.C. combine several activities  with food distribution."  A Food Bank shopper trades a "New Reality" coupon for goods.  ���Jim McDowell photo  Brown agreed to share some  space above the old fire hall. The  B.C. Federation of Labor and the  federal government fund the UAC.  The food bank pays part of the  utilities and phone bills.  McDowell, Harfield, and Brown  all agree that the food bank is not  intended to provide free food  regularly to welfare recipients.  "It's an emergency service to tide  people over who are struggling to  make ends meet," says Harfield.  "It's meant to serve mainly  unemployed workers."  To emphasize this purpose both  food banks (Sechelt and Gibsons)  require recipients to show proof of  need with a UIC receipt or a  welfare receipt.  In Gibsons, recipients are interviewed to determine their actual  needs. "We discuss each person's  budget with them," says Harfield.  "If they have more than $25 per  person each week left after tallying  all other expenses, then they don't  qualify for emergency food.  Harfield wants to reach those in  serious need who may feel reluctant to use the food bank. "People  don't need to blame themselves for  being out of work," she says.  Those who don't qualify are urged to seek additional counselling  through the UAC. People who  face emergencies between distribution days can phone the Action  Centre for food.  Harfield's "New Reality"  coupons are intended to add comic  relief and increase personal choice.  "We've eliminated dehumanizing  lineups for a bag of handouts by  making people responsible for their  own choices," says Harfield. "The  coupons let you shop for what you  need within our limits."  McDowell claims contributions  by mail have picked up. "We're  getting reports from both towns  that donors are impressed by our  new operations," he says.  All food bank funding comes  from donations, used to purchase  food at cut-rate prices, transport it  as cheaply as possible, and cover  basic management costs. As a  volunteer, Harfield receives an  honorarium of $250 per month for  her administrative expenses.  SCCSS handles all the bookkeeping.

On behalf of her husband and  herself, she had appealed against  "the permit at a well-attended hearing in Sechelt on August 14. The interview with Griffith follows.  Did the decision to dismiss your  appeal surprise you?  "Oh, no. Several people around  here have made appeals. They all  told us, 'You have 100 per cent  chance of losing. But go ahead  anyway.' I admit, when our case  was so good and the Appeal Board  so genial, I sort of hoped things  might be different this time, but  no, I wasn't surprised."  The Appeal Board has a reputation  "for upholding pesticide use permits. Why is this?  "I couldn't say...maybe Dow  ^Chemicals, who make this Esteron  (2,4-D), and Monsanto and others  have a big voice with the government. Add that to the short-sighted  'cheapo' provincial outlook these  days. The answer may be  somewhere there."  What made you think your case  was good?  "In this type of hearing, the real  issues take a back seat to details.  Our most important examples for  arguments were two streams. We  proved the water ran higher than  ankle-deep, three days after the  foresty had classed it 'totally dry'  -fit for spraying. 2,4-D remains active one to four weeks in the soil."  What did the Appeal Board say  about the streams?  In its comments the board notes  that the two streams...are not  much more than storm ditches."  Why did you and your husband  lodge an appeal although you were  fairly sure it would be dismissed?  "Various reasons. We see that  hillside every day; we didn't want  to let it be poisoned without lifting .  a finger.  "Then again, the foresty, hydro  and other outfits are slower to  choose chemicals next time, when  they know they'll have an appeal to  fight.  "It gives people more knowledge  too. They've seen the appeal process in action. They know what's  what about 2,4-D, if they didn't  before. We learned a lot: and I've  been impressed by the helpfulness  and honesty of our local Sechelt  foresty people.  "The big, concerned crowd at  the appeal last week got the  message through to foresty and  everyone else. I've never been more  delighted than when I saw that  crowd. Right there it made it .worthwhile."  Can you appeal against the board's  decision?  "I'guess so, but it takes time and  money. We'll likely go back to  concentrating on the worst  polluter, nuclear war. I mean  what's the use of saving a hill from  2,4-D if it gets the fallout from  Comox or Nanoose? So right now  I'm helping with the election. It's  all tied in with protecting the  hillside."  Sometimes an extra sailing  Summer ferry overloads  %  "As far as I know, every  weekend this summer when we  'haven't put on an extra sailing  .there have been anywhere from  five to 49 cars left behind at  Langdale on Sunday night," terminal agent Barry Lynn told the  Coast News test week. "To my  knowledge we've made an extra  run six times since the end of May  because the overloads were so  great."  )    The  (Coast   News  approached  Lynn tp try to summarize the ferry  traffic situation oyer the summer  fWryv officials'in Victoria for the  figures.  ''Decisions on whether tp run an  extra sailing come frpm there," he  said, explaining that he did not  know at what point an extra sailing  was given the go-ahead. Each Sunday the terminal agent phones Victoria to report how many cars are  left after the 8:25 p.m. sailing  departs, and Lynn only knows that  49 cars in the parking lot did not  warrant another run but 80 did.  The most that were ever waiting  after the 8:25 p.m. sailing were  173.  In Lynn's opinion the ferry traffic, patterns this summer have been  the same as.last year. Then, there,  were usually..ov&lqaas on the 6:30.  p.m. and 8:25 p.m. sailings/and  the 'leftovers' would be taken care  of by the 10:30 p.m. run. Much the  same has been happening this year,  Wr*rtf!  with the exception that the 10:30  p.m. 'extra' sailing is most often  not there.  Lynn also pointed out that the  regular Sunshine Coast ferry, the  rebuilt Queen of Alberni, has been  replaced each summer Sunday by  the Queen of Coquitlam, which  carries an extra 68 vehicles over the  capacity of the Alberni.  "If we had been using the Alberni on Sundays," Lynn said, "the  overloads would have been more  than one extra sailing could nan-  ' "In Lynn's personal bpraipnM'ir  ferry traffic increases next year in  any amount whatsoever, a 10:30  p.m.   regular  sailing  will   be  a  necessity.

Gibsons  gets a  gravel  plant  -Michael Burns pholo  by Dana Sheehan  The town of Gibsons now has a  gravel screening plant. Mr. Ron  Webber, superintendent of works,  Ralph Jones, building inspector,  and alderman Jack Marshall have  all inspected the plant, and the  decision to make the $4,000 purchase was reached Friday.  The plant, located in the works  yard on Henry Road, consists of a  drum, hopper, and a conveyor  belt. Gibsons will now be able to  maintain its roads and parks in a  much more cost-efficient manner.  The plant will screen gravel for  road base material, will provide  topsoil for our parks and will provide the base for the laying of  water and sewer lines.  "The 2,000 yards of soil already  stockpiled on the site will alone  make up the cost of the plant,"  stated Ron Webber.  Books for Jobless  The Unemployment Action Centre in Gibsons has started a  "Swap a Book Club". Unemployed people may bring in a book  and swap it for another one. Please make sure books are in complete reading condition.  We are also in need of donations of books to help build our  library. If you would like to help us in this matter, bring your books  to the Unemployment Action Centre located at the old firehall, between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. Monday through Friday.  For more information call the UAC at 886-2425.  Works project  The Summer Canada Works Project has now ended. The project  workers would like to thank the community for all the co-operation  we received. For any residents, boat owners or business people who  would still like their valuables engraved, an engraver may be borrowed from the Gibsons RCMP at no charge.  Watch children  Local RCMP detachments wish to advise motorists that extra  care should be applied to driving safety with the start of the school  year.  Children are usually very excited at the beginning of the school  year and may not always pay attention while they are walking on  the roadsides and when they are crossing roads at intersections and  crosswalks.  Regulations regarding school buses will be strictly enforced by  our local detachments. Remember that all motorists are required to  stop when the red lights of a school bus are flashing. 2.  Coast News, Septembers, 1984  Storm signals  The federal election campaign notwithstanding, this has been  a summer to savour, a summer to help one forget one's troubles.  Oldtimers will tell you with satisfaction that this is the way summer used to be. It has been a summer in which the wounds of  our divided province have been able, to some extent, to heal  themselves.  Unhappily, with the first hint of autumn in the evening air  there comes also small reminders that all is still not well in  British Columbia. The storm signals, for those alert enough to  notice, are coming from that storm centre of the province, Victoria. .      M..-_... ,.. '       ���  Simmering away all summer but less and less noticed as the  news media has focussed more and more on the federal election  has been the unresolved tension at the Expo site over the use of  non-union labour. Recently the provincial cabinet took direct  action in declaring Expo an economic development site. There  are, of course, those who will applaud, but to the "trade union  movement it is another in a long line of government interventions which have prevented a resolution of the dispute. Every  time^an agreement has seemed in sight, say the trade unionists,  the government has stepped in and changed the ground rules.  Also simmering away all summer, has been the Vancouver  bus strike which has been allowed to drag on for months now.  On this front, Premier Bennett observed recently that an Ontario provincial government move to head off a bus strike had  led to little in the way of protest in that province and perhaps  that meant that the public was against public servants having the  right to strike.  This is both an ominous and mischievious remark by Mr.  Bennett. It leads one to believe that he is still embarked on his  holy war against trade unionism, to contemplate the possibility  that the bus strike has been allowed to drag on in the hopes that  an irate public would demand the end of public servants' right  to strike.  It would appear that the premier of the province is still not  primarily concerned with helping to create a constructive atmosphere in which British Columbians can put their economic  house in order. He seems still bent on his radical right wing  policies which have done so much to divide and inflame the province. Those who applaud his actions may, with the rest of us,  look back at the tranquil summer of 1984 with much nostalgia  from a future viewpoint much less comforting.  5 YEARS AGO  An inconclusive vote is  ��� held on the voluntary liquidation of the 62-year old  Elphinstone Co-op in Gib-  sons.

Peterson  What the media is showing us  Violence as a solution  Gibsons Landing, about 1912. A portion of the original George  Gibson building on the site of the present Molly's Reach appears to  the left of the public wharf, which had been in place for a decade.  F.W.

Winn and son Harry have just acquired the store and house,  by Gordon Wilson  If ever there was a case for some  public scrutiny of the role of the  media in developing the social conscience of a given population, it  was this last election campaign. I  don't recall a campaign where  there has been so much media time  devoted to the prediction of the  outcome by constant reference"-to -  various polls, and so little time  given to the candidates' comments  on the specific issues.  True the media was, in large  part,  responsible for the image  making of such politicians as Kennedy, Trudeau, and even to an extent Reagan, but I thinklyou w^  cohere that those past caihpaigriS;| ������  d^-npt,have a&jeffactive '*&&%&*  presentation 'asi-that'? irsed \fyxM&  Conservatives to present a.;PpUsh- ..  ed,  well-groomed,  always ,^m,M  smiling, figure of Brian Mulroney.  The point here is not to cry foul,  for that type of media packaging  was available to all contesting parties if they had so chosen. I wish,  rather, to make a comment on the  degree to which an <>verwhelming  number of people in this country  have come to depend on the media  as the single source of information, .  social comment, entertainment, .  and intellectual inquiry.  As a person who is both actively  involved in the arts and a social  scientist, I have for some time been  pondering.the evident shift toward  conservatism in Western societies,  and have tried to descern the extent  to which to media has played a key  role. Iri doing so, some rather alarming social trends have started to  emerge.  My principle interest, beyond  my involvement in academia, lies  with the performing arts, mostly  theatre. As such, I am not a great  fan of television and have been  very selective when choosing films  that I will see. Recently, in my  quest for some insight into the  social trend alluded to, I have  started to take a greater interest in  both television and film, and have  found much of what is currently  offered and very popular, quite  disturbing.  Most of the popular programs  have their origins in the U.S.,  which in itself is not bad; the  Americans have years of proven  ability, and provide a technically  good product. It's the ideological  Message that concerns me.  ���rTjhis summer, for: example,' I, ���' ���  %\0 m'Hions w*of   other   Nor^i;-  Americans took my children to see  .the  latest  Spielberg smash hit,  Gremlins. Here is a film that is  technically brilliant. The special effects,   lighting,   and   studio   set  design   were   very   effective  throughout the show. But the overt  use of violence had to be disturbing,   particularly   as   this   was  marketed as a film suitable for  children.  But beyond that, the constant  subliminal message of danger from  without, the idea of the external  threat, is, in my view, cause for  some concern. Substitute the  Gremlin with a Russian, Cuban, or  Nicaraguan, and the ideological  framework in which the picture is  set takes on a very different form.  If you think this is far fetched, I  suggest that you go to see Red  Dawn. It is in essence the same  film. Again we see the external  threat, only in this case it is based  on the absurd premise that  somehow   Russian,   Cuban   and  Nicaraguan troops have managed a  land and air attack on the continental United States, and the  defence of the country, as with  Gremlins, falls to the youth. In the  case of Red Dawn, the future of  the country rests with a group of  high school students who take up  arms against the mindless, savage  invaders who show only too clearly  that the people of those three countries are grotesquely violent, and  should be despised.  If these were only two isolated  films, the counter argument that  these   harmless   adventure   films  might hold some credence. "After  all"   commented   an   associate,  "when ^ou were a kid you watched  cowboys shoot up savage indians,  and  you;^turned  but- alright."  ���"erhaps so, but how many years  have the native people of this country and the U.S. had to struggle  against social stereotyping, and an  attitude   pervasive   amoung   the  white majority that denies them  fundamental rights in our society?  And these are not isolated cases.  Look at the most influential form  of media, television. Of the most  popular shows, an overwhelming  majority are based on violent solution to social injustice. The A  Team solves the problems of its  clients with automatic rifles, explosive  devices,   helicopter  gun-  ships, and whatever else is needed,  although to give credit where it is  due, the magic of film provides,  bloody confrontation without any  blood. No one is killed on A Team.  What is in store for us this fall?  More of the same. Pilots of potential fall shows that have been aired  provide a new array of American  spy teams, out to battle the Reds; a  series called Wings of Glory replays  the Cuban missile crisis, and reaffirms in our mind that war is never  far away. But fear not, the next  hour on the tube will show us a  super invincible helicopter, put into the service of the C.I.A., that  will succeed against all odds;  America will remain supreme.  There are those among my colleagues who suggest that mine is an  over-reaction to harmless  Hollywood thrills. It is those comments that concern me most of all.  There has, over the last decade,  been extensive social research into  the effect and impact of the media  on the population. It has been  clearly shown that the attitudes  people hold toward everything,  from the laundry detergent they  buy, to the person they vote for is  directly affected by the media. It  has also been shown that often the  rationale for their selection is missing.  People are often unaware of the  impact that the media does have,  and will deny any influence at all.  Yet Robert Young, when performing as "Dr. Marcus Welby, M.D."  received on the average between 20  and 30 thousand letters a month  asking for medical advice.  Hospitals in the United States  treated several hundreds of people  for severe shock when the producers of "MASH" dispensed  with Henry Blake by killing him in  an air crach, and college students  in B.C. plan their course timetable  so that they can watch "All My  Children".  The extent to which the social  manipulation is taking hold in  Canada is best illustrated by the  growing number of American films  and television programs that are  Please turn to page 15  What did you learn in school today?  Educating for today's world  by Michael Burns  It's that time of year again when  parents and children are bustling  about preparing tor another school  year and in the midst of all the  physical preparations it might be  good to "back off" somewhat and  think about what happens in our  schools.  The schooling process in a state  funded system has as primary objective the production of individuals who can integrate  themselves easily into that society.  This is accomplished by teaching  the skills necessary for physical survival and by inculcating values  which are generally held to be important.  When viewed in that light our  public schools are doing reasonably  well and teaching our children basic  skills as well as giving them a  perception of themselves and their  relationship to the world which fits  the homogenized concept of what a  twentieth century adult should be.  The tragedy of public education  however stems from the fact that it  is based on premises depending on  a world view which is no longer applicable to the realities of present  day events and which can in no  way supply the tools needed to  understand those realities.  Since the 1950's the western  world has experienced a radical  challenge to its basic traditions and  institutions resulting in the creation  of a world which is very different  to that of just one generation ago.  So much change has occurred in so  short a space of time that Alvin  Toffler said in his book "Future  Shock". "As we hurtle into tomor-  ��� row, millons of ordinary men and  women will face emotion-packed  options so unfamiliar, so untested,  that past experience will offer little  clue to wisdom."  The social and global problems  arising from the arms race, from  the misuse of resources, from the  growing corporate centralization  of power and wealth, and from the  contamination of our air, water  and food are such that we can no  longer hope to confront them with  attitudes which seemed valid in  earlier times.  What worked before is  guaranteed to fail now.  If you think these global concerns "out there" have no bearing  on your personal life, think again.  What happened to the North  American cost of living when  petroleum prices skyrocketed?  What do you think would happen  to our monetary system and to our  lifestyle if an international banking  failure occured? Why is cancer fast  becoming the most prevalent  disease of modern society?  Examine these and many other  questions carefully and you will see  that there is a direct relation between the quality of yours and my  life and the global concerns we so  often wish to ignore.  It is extremely short sighted then  for our public schools to foster approaches to learning and living  which although relevant in the  past,   can   have  no  bearing  to  today's world. I would go further  and say it is detrimental to the  emotional and mental health of individuals and seriously hampers  their ability to effect positive social  change.  The problem then lies not in the  fact that our schools are lacking  when examined from the viewpoint  of quantitative criteria: they are  generally successful in teaching  basic literacy and computative  skills, and they more or less have  enough material resources and all  the physical nitty-gritty essential to  an education system.  Rather they are seriously deficient in the qualitative influence  they have in helping to shape individuals with a strong sense of  faith in themselves and belief in  their capability to fashion a sane  and healthy life.  In other words, schools should  not be encouraging standardization  through rigid curricula and examination control; they should not  be guilty of procedures which  dehumanize by using principles of  behavior and control based on archaic and repressive hierarchical  systems of authority; nor should  they attempt to destroy the initiative and joy of learning and living that children have.  Schools should encourage  creativity and the ability to examine problems in novel ways;  they should operate on democratic  principles which view all participants in the educational process  - students, parents, teachers and  administrators, as equals; and they  ���should encourage autonomous  behavior on the part of their  students.  This is not intended as a criticism  of those who work in our schools  although as direct participants in  the learning process they must, just  like the parents who allow it to  happen, bear some of the respon-  siblity. The thrust necessary to  change the learning process to the  extent that it must, will not come  from professional educators who,  caught up as they are in the present  system, are perhaps too close to the  problem.       .      ���  The thrust must come from  parents unhappy with what is happening to their children, who  decide to involve themselves direct^  ly with their children's education.  A growing number of parents  across North Americai aire: suc^  cessfully and happily keeping_their'  children at home believing more in  their innate abilities to educate  their children than in those of a  system they perceive as-sterile and  harmful:  Others prefer to involve  themselves more fully in the day to  day school life and working for  change that way.  Until these influences have  enough impact to cause meaningful change in our education  system, our children will continue  to mature into estranged adults  who perceive the world as alien and  hostile - devoid of meaning and  joy.

Your handiwork shows through  the tender care  in creating all living specimen  of the sky, the sea, the forests,  existing in harmony with the  environment that nestles-  them.  Why then, Oh Mother Nature,  have you made me so vastly  different  from those happy creatures of the  wilds?  I vainly parade my superior  intelligence before those  lowly creatures  Yet, I succumb to the minutest  germ.  Against my better judgement,  I'm forever building antagonisms  within myself,  leaving me in a state of constant  turmoil.  Sapping all of my strength,  Rendering me ill-prepared to  meet the ravages of  natural calamities.  I speak of love and brotherhood  - and kill my brother.  I value highly my life,.

I pride myself on the uniqueness  .   of my culture.  But slavishly obey the law of the  jungle from whence I came.  I reach into the deep recesses of  , the mind  to find justification for my every  ���':.���  act of violence.  I am not a common killer, as you  can see -  I am a just man.  I gaze pensively at the havoc  wrought by my blind greed,  as I contemplate a peaceful  paradise in the garden of  Eden.  But wait, I shall.seek individuality  and independence -  These must be my ultimate goals.  Alas, all I have acquired is  insecurity and loneliness...  Skookum  Mark Guignard says.

No.No, you would not dare  assign to me such a task!  Joseph Sparacino  Categories of nuclear power  Editor:  I wish to register my disappointment with anyone referring to a  "Nuclear Free Zone" without being  specific as to what form they mean.  To my way of thinking, there are  three major categories to be considered: 1. Unrestrained nuclear fission (the bomb); 2. Restrained  nuclear fission (nuclear reactors currently in use); 3. Nuclear fusion.  As a'peacenik' from the 60's, I  abhor the thought of using atomic  or any other sort of physical force  to show someone I disagree with  them. >  Nuclear fission reactors are a  valiant attempt at slowing down a  bomb's blast and tapping off  energy for the use of the public.  Unfortunately, it requires a critical  mass of fissionable materials in  close proximity, relying on (fallible) controls to keep it short of exploding - a good idea, but too unsafe:"'    - j-'X::  Nuclear fusion" "the source of  power for the future" say the  scientists. It can't explode, because  it uses less than a critical mass; It  can be made small, so theoretically  it could be used to replace internal,  combustion engines i.e, car  engines. It will be non polluting  and eventually cheap enough to be  feasible etc. etc.  Whether this will come to pass,  or not, may be decided by vote in  the near future. I will be very  disappointed if uninformed people  decided unintentionally to cancel  future research and development  of a power source that may save  the world from energy starvation.  John S. Reynolds  Gibsons  Vote for beliefs  Editor:  I find it difficult in what we call  a democracy to believe what I am  reading and hearing ip regard to  the election: "The PC is going to  win and we have to be on, the winning side"; "We have to vote for the  PC to be represented in Ottawa'!;  "If you vote for the NDP or parties other than the PC, your vote is  wasted".  Baa. Baa. Baa.  The late Eugene Debs, American '  Socialist Party presidential candidate, who was well known and  respected world wide, put.it very  well indeed when he said, "It is  better to vote for what you want  and not get it, than to vote for  what you don't want and get it."

Europe. ������"'." m  !;. Cadet Corporal David Foxall  X applied for and was accepted at  "; Camp Borden, Ontario to attend  J the scuba diving course. This  * course includes vigorous physical  '.'training while at the military  '.school.  ��� He not only proved he was  ',; capable, but placed first in a class  ' of 60 with the highest marks in the  diving course. Not only did he  achieve a high standard, but he was  voted unanimously the Best Cadet  in Camp Borden.  The commanding officer of the  Sunshine Coast Army Cadets,  Captain Bob Summerfield told the  ; Coast News that there was a total  of 400 cadets in Camp Borden,  from all over Canada, attending  various courses. And, for one  cadet from our area to be selected  as the best overall cadet is quite an .  achievement.  ' the reward for best cadet is a  trip to Europe. This cadet will be  sent to Germany in early 1985, for  eight to 10 weeks. During bis trip,  he will visit France, Holland,  Belgium and the UK. Well done  Corporal foxall.  The second cadet to receive  recognition is Cadet Corporal  Mark McDermid. He was selected  from the Sechelt Army Corps to attend a cadet leader course at Camp  Vernon. Once again, this young  cadet proved to be one of. the best  by placing third out of a total of  2800 cadets from western Canada..  His achievement was not for one  phase of training, but overall. This  included competitive shooting,  first aid, field craft, survival, drill,  and map and compass. Other  segments included dress and  deportment,. attitude, sports and  leadership.  To receive high marks for any  one of the above, requires hours of  study and practice. But to have  high marks in all is outstanding.  This.cadet also won a trip to  Europe in early 1985. There is a  possibility that he and Corporal  Foxall will travel together. Again  well done Corporal McDermid.  A third cadet to rate high" acclaim was one of our junior female  cadets, Cadet Pilling (F), who attended a two week course* in Camp  Vernon.  A total of 20 cadets from this  area were sent to various locations  during the summer, to better  themselves in the cadet organization. It is well appreciated by the  officers of the corps to see the enthusiasm that our youth can put  out. Once again congratulations!  There is a recruiting drive the  weekend of September 8 at both  shopping centres, Shop-Easy in  Sechelt and Super-Valu in Gibsons, between the hours of 1 and 4  In the past the corps lacked fully  qualified instructors to run the  various courses that the corps was .  required to knpw. They now have  instructors qualified to teach  rapelling, first aid, search and  rescue procedures, map and compass reading, watermanship, com-  M petitive shooting, and survival in  the field.  One of the big assets to an  organization like this, is that there  is no cost to the parents. The  monies  used  are raised  by the  .;. cadets  and  donations  from  the  sponsor.  So, if you are between the ages  of 13 and 19, male or female, and  ������ seek something a little different  than the norm, the members of this .  corps will only be too glad to  answer your questions.  Firemen from all over B.C. came  to Gibsons last week to take pari? in  the first ever B.C. Firefighters'  Salmon Derby, and they enjoyed it  so much ihey want it to be an annual event. $  Sponsored   by   theM Gibsons  Volunteer "Fire Department with  the assistance of the Cedars Piip,^  the derby attracted 70 entries from^  such varied areas as Lac La Hache,  Pemberton,  Lantzville on  Vancouver   Island,   Elkford . in   the  Kootenays,   Oliver/ Vancouver,'  NeW Westminster and Richmond.  Numerous others indicated they  would have liked to come but had  already taken holidays or made  holiday plans before they knew the  derby had been organized.  Gibsons fire "chief Mel  Buckmaster described the derby as a  summer equivalent to the" B.C.  Firefighters' curling bonspiel which  brings together firemen from all;  over the province in February each  year. "And we thought if we could  . bring people here to go fishing, they  would come back again," added  Buckmaster. The firemen and their  families stayed in motels, and  camped both at Bonniebrook and at  Brothers Park through special permission from Gibsons council.  Besides fishing on both Saturday  and Sunday, they enjoyed a  hospitality night, barbecue and pancake breakfast.      ,  First prize in the derby went to a  man on his first salt water fishing  trip for his first salmon catch.  Murray Berry of Vernon hooked  an 11 pound two ounce Spring that  took ah hour to land, and in addition to his fish took home a five hp  outboard motor for his .efforts,  plus a trophy donated by the  Cedars Pub. His name will go on  the large perpetual trophy, also  donated by the Cedars, which will...  be permanently on' display at the  Gibsons Firehall. The Cedars provided individual trophies for the  three largest salmon caught.  In other catch categories, the  biggest Coho was an eight pound 14  ouncer reeled in by Ron Jacobson  of Richmond, and the biggest  Dogfish, weighing 12 pounds eight  ounces, was caught by Bob Leek of  New Westminster. The most  unusual catch was an eight pound  two ounce Skate by Vancouverite  Bill Firth.  Winners got to choose their prizes M  from among fishing rods, tents/M  packboards,   lamps,   fire   extinguishers (of course!), ice boxes  and T-shirts, all generously donated  by local merchants. "We had a \er/f.%*>  good response from both local mer-    M  chants and marinas," commented  Buckmaster. "'.'.'  Plans are already underway for  next year's derby, and one of the  few changes planned so far is a  change of date. "We might hold  the derby earlier next year," said  Buckmaster, "so there will be more  big Springs available!"

A good idea  but not true. . -    '  The Gibsons Sea Cavalcade  Association is a group of people  who put on a summer festival just  for the fun of it. The more people  involved, the more fun and the better the Sea Cavalcade. Anyone can  join, for a dollar ($1), some ideas,  some energy and a good sense of  humour.  Ask me, or Ken Crosby or Diane  Strom or Rob Liddicoat and let us  know your interest.  At a meeting on Wednesday  evening, a theme for next year was  selected. Did everyone see the winning Bank of Commerce  "Clowns"? The 1985 theme will be  "Sea Sports". We still want lots  and lots of clowns so, if clowns are  your preference for parade or  business, you are still in the money.  Sea Cavalcade 1985, will be on a  weekend before B.C. Day when  the tides are suitable for sea sports.  The real Sea Sport will sport a  beard and be prepared to enter early in the new year in the beard  growing contest. -  rn..nhi ;n ��h_ qp'" Thp��p vpoairs in a Sechelt earden looked just too  appetizing tO be passed Up. -IviHehael Bums photo'  Canada #1 B.C.  uanaaa n ��.-. ___ fi AA  turnips 1 k9 .0*1 *. .Z9  ��� ��� ��� ���  Hawaiian  papaya  B.C.  zucchini  squash  B.C.

Well darn it, I guess fall is really  on its way in. The wind has been  blowing out of the northwest and  though it. brings us clear skies, it's  really chilly in the house at night  and in the mornings. One good  thing about the weather is how  easy it has been to pick blackberries. Someone showed me a  supreme stash of them that are so  pick that you hardly, even get  roughed up for the sake of winter  delicacies. My hands are blue and a  bit prickled but I consider it a small  price to pay for blackberry syrup  on pancakes in January.  CONTROLLED BURN  I was fortunate enough to be  able to view the controlled burn  site (near Malaspina substation)  last week when they set the area  . ablaze. Even on a warm summer  day the fire was completely controlled except for one minor  breakout. They light the blaze  from the middle outwards, thereby  creating a need for oxygen in the  centre.. The fire stays absolutely  contained, burns into the middle  and then goes out. Now the area  will be made ready for planting.  BAMBOO REQUEST  Elsie Mangles phoned the other  day with what is certainly an  unusual request. The Panda bears  in the Regina animal park are running out of bamboo. As bamboo is  pretty well all that they eat, this is  quite a serious problem. If you  have the long pointed leafed variety and you would be willing to cut  some please give Elsie a' call at  883-9136 after Thursday a.m.  The whole thing sounds so odd  but it is important enought that it is  flown out of the airport quite  directly. They are actually having  the same problems in China, where  they have begun bamboo plantations just to prevent the Giant Panda from becoming extinct.  VISITING CELEBRITIES  Each year a fair number of  celebrities .arrive in Pender Harbour and this year was no different. Mike Reno, of Loverboy,  cruised up in his beautiful boat  "Almost Paradise". Let's just say  their style of having fun is a bit different than that usually had at the  Garden Bay Pub. The next night at  the Backeddy Pub was a bit  quieter.'  By the way, apparently it's  rumour time again, and this time 1  heard that someone had been stabbed near the Backeddy in Egmont.  I phoned. Joe and asked apd he  assured me (through gritted teeth)  that the story was completely untrue. The ambulance was helping a  woman who had.slipped on her  Roberts Creek  boat and that's all. Who starts  these lies and don't they realise  how needlessly damaging they, can  be? 'Nuff said.  . AQUATIC NEWS  Good News! The Pender Harbour  Aquatic Centre will, open for its"  seasonal Saturday free swim on  September 15. ,  Robi Peters has written a very  comprehensive report on the new  fall schedule for the pool.

Elphie Rec is as close to a Roberts  Creek team as we've got in the  men's fastball league so it was  good to see them get into the  finals.

They tied the fifth game last  Thursday so they plan again,  tonight (Tuesday). The game is at  6:30 at Brothers Park, the last I  heard. Good luck guys.  ENTERTAINMENT  It may be "Hard Times" but  people still showed they can have a  good time at the dance at the  Roberts Creek Legion August 25.  The music of "Used Guys" drew a  motley crew dressed in rags and  gunny sacks but the place was jumping until the end of the last set.  "The G.G.'s" also drew a lively  crowd last Friday. They play a lot  of old favourites that you can't  keep from singing or clapping  along with.

The recommendations come in a  Church and International Affairs  committee report which says the  church is morally bound to side  with those who hope for an international order of peace and justice.  The report says there are two competing views of international relations today: that international affairs are motivated by the law of  the jungle or society.  Those on the side of society, the  report says, are under an obligation to "enter the international  arena with the 'common good' of  the citizens of all nations in mind,  as well as the best interests of our  citizens".  The report says that as a middle  power, Canada has a role to play  that goes beyond "mere observation of the world scene but stops  short of actual control over some  of the key forces that reinforce the  jungle".  p.m. This is the date of .the first  meeting and registration.

Chamber past president and  chairman of the Education Committee, Peter Bandi, told the Coast  News that, "This is an information  fair designed to answer questions  and deal with potential problems  which might come up if a person is  considering purchasing a computer. There's no point buying a  computer that is going to be 90 per  cent sufficient for your needs."  To be held Monday, September  10 from 1 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. in the  Conference Room at the Driftwood Inn, the fair will feature the  lines of three local exhibitors: Pro-  tech Office Supplies, Computer  House and Pacifica Pharmacy. On  display will be hardware by Olivetti, Corona, Kaypro, Grid [used by  President   Reagan),   Canadian-  made Arrow, O/S Microtech and  Coleco Adam, as well as several  different types of software with the  main emphasis on business application. Experts from the various  companies will give brief talks  throughout the,day and will be  available to demonstrate their products, discuss specific needs and  answer questions.  Bandi also hopes that those with  computers whose programs do not  completely meet their, business  needs will be able to find out how  to adapt those programs so that  they do.  "The most important thing is to  know what you need from a system  before you buy one," said Bandi.  "Each business has specific needs  and applications, and there are pitfalls and potential problems to be  recognized if one is to avoid costly  errors." .      t ��� W$m  Often people can do more with WM  their computers than they know iHi!!  about, too.

"I kept looking out at it for  more than an hour," said one resident, "but went on with my  housework. Then when I looked  again there wasn't a trace of it on  the water. Only a few wisps of the  black smoke still gave a hint of  what happened." , 'M  The 19-foot cabin cruiser  belonged to Bill and Ella Grant of  Hopkins Landing. "Fortunately,"  said Bill, "no one was injured in  the accident. Two mechanics, from  the Boat Centre of Horseshoe Bay,  who were taking the boat from my  place to Horseshoe, got nothing  more than a cold dunking when  they found the fire was out of control."  The two had their own boat  nearby prepared to tow the Grant  boat. But when the motor stalled in  the vicinity of Hutt Island and they  tried to re-start it, fire broke out.  "That's the same spot it had  stalled with me some time before,"  said Bill.  DUCK DANGER  Those who enjoy observing the  ducks and the two white geese in  Gibsons harbour have been  wondering these days if one small  duckling will survive the hazards of  shoreline life.  The duckling is still very small,  swimming and waddling after his  mother of nondescript species quite  /uncertain whether the predators.  that snatched away the other eight  of the brood will attack him too.  The mother duck had made her  nest under the ornamental shrubbery of a be^ch-frorit home, laid 13  eggs' a^d after almost 28 days hatched ^he niriei ducklings.  Within days, if not hours, the  brood was. down to three.  Neighbourhood dogs, cats, and  crows were the destroyers.  "I saw a crow snatch one up,"  said a beach-front resident, "drop  it several times like, it was a mussel  shell, and then tear strips from it  while it was still squawking.  Pitiful."  A savage scenario, on our quiet  harbour shoreline.

They were friendly,  casually dressed in shorts, T-shirts,  etc. They danced with the local  girls and chatted with whoever asked for an autograph.  -1 was a teenage Frank Sinatra  fan in the 40's, so when talking to  this group I tried not to let them  know that I had not even heard of  them until they arrived at the  Backeddy.

Some will be bold and outgoing, while others will be shy and  withdrawn.  I can well;remember my first day at school. As a country  farm boy and being drjven to town to go to school with al!  those strange kids,���I was scared. In fact, Iwas so scared,  that recess saw me disappear into a nearby roadside culvert,  'where I'hid until schoolwas out. Then i would start to walk  ^toward home and was met by my grandfather coming into  town with horse and buggy to take me home. Needless to say  ^EALWIN"  K.L.D. Winner  #210  Julfie Kirkiand  Granthams  Landing  $50 Grocery Draw Winner  school authorities and Grandpa soon got together over this  daily game playi  And, because I was a shy, country boy; I got lots of attention from the class; bullies. This experience caused me to lose  all confidence in myself and interest in school. My grades  were poor, which went on until grade 8. By this time we had  moved to the city, after Grandma died, and if anything, matters grew worse, until trie new term after Christmas.  A new principal was assigned to our school. His name was  Mr. Hamilton, and although the names of most of my  teachers now escapes me, his never will.  Although J was practically last in my class standing, he  sought me out, discovered my problem and with encourage-  k3BSO-iTsl  HFBSHl  market]  ment and some after school help, got me pn track.  By Easter break, as a result of test papers, I stood 15th (out  of 35 that is) in my class. By June, I was near the top in class  standing. This man made a life-long Impression on me in just  a few months, for he was no longer my teacher as I went on  to high school, after passing my government exams.  Someone once said, "If the pupil hasn't learned the teacher  hasn't taught." This may be a bit harsh, and certainly not  always true, but theirs can be both a challenging and rewarding experience.  To all the new beginners in whatever grade, and teachers,  too���may you all have a great beginning and a happy ending.

The shows'"'ends on  September 9. -  >/'������'.  Her exhibition, rightfully, has  been received ��;with great enthusiasm and admired for the unique quality and skill of her coloured pencil drawings, particularly  in her latest works which give us  the dense, cluttered world of the city with its neon lights, people - real  and reflected, cars, and wet streets.  It is. a fragmented, lonely,  sometimes ominous world despite  the glowing lights and sensuous  colour.  A vision of an uneasy  fairylands  Other works in the show look inward rather than outward for their  expression. Some record emotional  journeys, others, a turning point or  the memory "of a friend. All are  worth a second, third and fourth  look and are open to many interpretations.  An opportunity to join in a  discussion of this fine exhibition  with the artist present will take place  at the Arts Centre on Thursday,  September 6, starting at 7i30 p.m.  Please note the following  changes in hours at the Arts Centre.

The six points as set out would  seem in the writer's estimation to  cover a great portion of the concerns of seniors. Perhaps the questionnaire should have included  some question of proposed  political policy in regard to the ser-  ��� vices that are beipg provided by  both the Old Age Pensioners  Association of B.C. and the Senior  Citizens Association of B.C. particularly, at very little federal or  provincial government expense.  Branch 69 of the Senior Citizens  Association of B.C., situated in  Sechelt, B.C., is one of the more  active groups which has not only  bought and paid for, in the last few  years, a hall to provide some of  these recreational facilities for its  members, buti has recently pur  chased a larger site in Sechelt on  which to construct a new hall.  With a membership of "500 plus"  the present facility is definitely inadequate, with the consequence  that we are looking for federal and  provincial funds to build a facility  that will continue to provide services to the expanded membership,  and also to assist in keeping our  seniors active and out of institutions. Such a building will provide  companionship, fellowship and  enhancement of the physical and  mental well being of its membership.  In our humble opinion there  should be grants available federally,  as well as provincially.to assist branches such as ours who have a proven record for trying to improve  their lot.  We hope that all political parties  will support lis in our efforts,   v  /' Len Herder, President  Larry Grafton, Chairman  Branch 69 Building Committee  Garbage* garbage  Editor:  Anyone caught dumping garbage in our property at Gilniour  and Cemetery Roads will positively  be prosecuted at law and pay to'  clean it up, if not shot!  This means you of the stinking  dirty white gutter pipes, building  ;rme$s, old shower curtains, filthy  carpet remnants and so on and on.  A whole truckload of it! And all  would be followers in your filthy  truck tracks! There's a legal dump  in Sechelt. Take your junk up there  next time. It will be a lot easier and  cheaper than going-to court.  Most of the above-mentioned  mess could have been disposed of  legally and simply by having a garbage burner in your yard. It neeUs  a good draft and legally requires a  screen over it to prevent flying hot  ash. Some people use a big old  stove outside. Anything dry that  will burn up fast, not smoulder  stinkingly. --'MM V   " it*  Could   Gibsons   get ^ainqthef  dump? ' M  I am afraid we may go back to  the 1960's style when garbage was  being dumped everywhere, and  now we have so many more people  and a zillion tons more garbage....  Lucy Barnhart  Gibsons  More school cuts  Editor:  I would like to inform the  parents pf School District #46 of  impending support staff layoffs.  Every CUPE member is being told  to take between five and one half  and eight days off without pay in  the next school year. This will affect all areas of our service - offices  (including Continuing^. Education  and the Resource Centre),  libraries, classrooms, buildings and  grounds.  Because this is a board office  decision in response to provincial  government cuts, and thus out of  the hands of the principals, if any  problem arises as a result of these  service cuts we suggest you call the  board office at 886-8811 or your  trustee and ask them to deal with  the matter. It is important that they  be made aware of the impact of  these service cuts so that they may  better understand the implications.  The  principals have been instructed not to replace CUPE staff  with volunteers. We ask that you  respect our place in the workforce.  We also urge you to write the  Honourable   Jack   Heinrich,  Minister of Education, Victoria,  (with a copy to MLA Don  Lockstead) to protect further  education funding cuts.  Lynda Olsen, President  CUPE Local 801  Editor:  Thank you for informing local  residents about ABLE, (Adults  Basic Literacy Education) in your  August 27 edition.  This volunteer tutoring program  is sponsored by the Continuing  Education office of School District  #46, not Capilano College as was  indicated in the article's headline.  Please inform your readers of this.  R.

It has nothing to do with hygiene.  Symptoms include itchy skin mainly in the evenings. The skin  usually has little red lines between the fingers, arms, etc.  Kwellada�� is used to treat scabies. Apply the lotion, after a hot  soapy bath, to the skin and put on clean clothing. After eight to  12 hours wash all areas of application. Usually a single application is enough.  To prevent re-infestation disinfect all clothing, bedding,  upholstery, etc. that the affected person has come in contact  with.  Benzyl Benzoate is also used in the treatment of scabies. The  cream is greasy and must be left on for 24 hours making it an  unpleasant treatment. It is therefore used on children under two  or pregnant women where toxicity must be kept down to a  minimum.  0  >  W  o��  a.  o  Preparations for' the minor  hockey season are moving forward  on several fronts as we move into  September.

Continued from page 1  proving to be highly successful in  this country, and along with them  come the trappings. Our streets are  now frequented by Canadian  youth that are dressed in  camouflage fatigues and T-shirts  with various messages. One young  person I saw recently in Vancouver  wore a T-shirt vyith the inscription  'A Good Red is Dead', presumably  making reference to Red Dawn.  Beyond the obvious concern for  the social health of the population,  this trend potentially threatens the  intellectual strength of our society.  There are few enough avenues for  intellectual debate in our society as  it is, and this trend will not help  overcome that problem. Funding  for films that deal with socially  relevant issues and are of an artistic  nature is almost impossible to get  because such films do not sell.  Television programs that deal with  social issues are becoming less frequent as we see the rise of night  time soaps.  Most  dangerous  of  all,   and  witnessed recently in B.C., televi  sion is becoming the medium for  the introduction of politically contentious legislation, thus disenfranchising the voice of democratically  elected members of the legislature.  Perhaps  the  universe  is   un  folding as it should..jor, is it unfolding as the Six O'clock Evening  News would have us believe?

ASSAULT PART 13  SEXUAL ABUSE  A review, of information  gathered on sexual abuse of  children, especially in cases of incest reveals thai sexual abuse is  symptomatic of family dysfunction  and family breakdown. It generally.  does not occur in emotionally  stable families.  The sexually abusive family-  tends to be insular and isolated,  with few friends br outside relationships. The marital relationship  has been rendered dysfunctional,  either through communications or  sexual problems. No more than  five per cent of child sexual abuse  cases involve physical ijrtjury. In  most cases the child does what the  adult asks. Children are led to  believe that adults. (parents) are  right. Father/daughter relationships tend to be ongoing rather  than episodic. Recidivism is rare  after disclosure.  The following indicators are of  particular   interest   to   teachers,  nurses, pediatricians, gynecologists  and social workers:  ,-r  Physical signs: Venereal diseases  l%ri young children and adolescents,  kevidence of physical, trauma to  genital area, e.g., hickies, "hurting  .down   there",   walking   funny,  ^���bruises around the mouth. Pain  ^around  genitals  or  throat,  e.g.  *)'hurts   when   going   to   the  bathroom", throat ache, trouble  swallowing. Unusual and offensive  odour,   e.g.   vaginal   infection.  Pregnancy, especially if refusal to  give information about the father  and/or a denial of pregnancy by  the girl.  Behavioral: regression involving  dayreaming, retreat to a fantasy  world, infantile behavior, acting  "retarded", learning problems.  Aggression, delinquency, acting-  out behavior and prostitution.  Poor peer relationships and difficulty socialising, preoccupation  with sexual matters, unusual seductive behavior. Neurotic behavior,  phobias, insomnia, nightmares,  complusive behavior, hysterical  behavior, separation anxiety and.  reaction formation, e.g. frequent  hand washing. Unwillingness to  participate in physical activities,  discomfort while sitting, avoidance  of school or an avoidance of home,  frequent absences from school ���  justified by one parent, running  away from home or indirect allusions to problems at home. Finally,  depression, suicide attempts and  alcohol or drug abuse.  There is no treatment formula  for cases of sexual abuse as each  family is unique and must be  assessed on its own merits. There  is, however, a range of possible  therapeutic interventions which  can be used in various combination's depending on the assessment  of needs in each family.  Next week, we will deal with the  social services process of intervention into a case of sexual abuse.  Please write to us on this subject. We need your testimonies to  make these articles more complete.  Letters heed NOT be signed.

Coast News, Septembers, 1984  CarVs Corner  Carl Chrismas  As an ex-logger who has spent  most of his life in the woods in one  capacity or another, the following  poem has a special meaning. It  comes courtesy Redwood Park in  Surrey, author unknown:  Prayer of the Woods  I am the heal of your hearth on ���  ihc cold winter nights,  the friendly shade screening vqu  from the summer sun, and  my fruits  arc refreshing draughts quenching  . your thirst as you journey on.  I am the beam that holds  your house,  the hoard of your table,  (he bed on which you lie  and the timber that builds  your boat.  I am the handle of your hoe,  the door of your homestead,  the wood of your cradle  and the shell of your coffin.  I am the bread of kindness  and the flower of beauty.  ) e who pass by, listen to  my prayer.  Harm me not!  My life in the woods began at an  early age on the local mountains;  skiing, building log cabins, hiking.  In the mid-thirties I; went to the  Coast logging camps and since that  time, trees have had a strong influence in the shaping of my life.  I have grown to love trees, logs,  and wood, in that order. Over the  years, the woods have put. beans in  my pot, bread on my table, and has  been the source of all good, bad,  and in-between things that have  happened to me during my threescore and 10! '  1 learned about trees from a hard  bitten old logger who tossed curses  skyward to anyone listening for not  growing 150 foot trees in suitable  locations that Would top to 120  foot spars for high-lead settings.  .Ask any forest engineer. Sam  Madill of Nanaimo helped to solve  that problem by inventing a steel  spar mounted on a thrashed out  logging truck.  I also learned that  a log can  develop  characteristics  that   one  'would swear were almost human.  There is an old adage that goes *as'  the twig is bent, so the tree shall  grow'.    That    could   only   have'  originated in the woods but it applies to humans as well as trees. A  bad seed is sown and a tree or a  child will come to maturity creating  problems   and    frustration    for  everyone  they   come   in   contact  with. .  Most.loggers will agree.that they  have.come in contact with such a  log at some time, in their lives and it ,:  begins right at the stump. This par- ;  ticulap tree hung up when the Taller  tipped it from its perch, then had  to drop another into it to lay it on  the ground.  The bucRer's saw jammed in the  cut while turning it into a log; the  chokerman had to fight for a  choker hole; then the damned  thing slipped its choker and went  bouncing down the hill on its own  to scare hell out of the landing  crew.  Because of a churn butt and a  burl on its side it refused.to make a  lay for the next log and rolled off  the load until the loader buried it in  the middle.  Al the. Sanding it rolled across  the'brow log, one end under the  trailer reach, then the, rest of the  load crashed on top of it. Crack���a  broken-reach!  When the whole mess hit the  water it caused the damndest  jackpot for the boom-man before  it could be sorted and stowed in the  boom. That one log had caused  nothing but problems from the  stump to the dump. You old loggers will know what I mean!  So that is what 1 mean'by 'the  characteristic of a log'. By the  same token, one can form an attachment to a log which can be  almost classed as a love affair. One  such log comes to mind. The remains of an old brow log and.skids  where we^ dumped logs into  Robert's Creek in the early 'forties',  when B & K was logging on  Elphinstone, and where I used to  spell Jack Burt on his log.truck on  the occasion when he made a trip  to the city on the Union Steamship.  On a sunny Sunday when ail \vas  ..   quiet on the waterfront and our little family went for a stroll, it was  usually down to the log dump. We  could sit on that old brow log and .  gaze out   to  sea  while the  kids  played in the -water. IriMthe fall we  .could lie across it and watch the  salmon as they prepared for their  spawning ritual.    '  . It has taken more than 40 years'  for the last remains of that old  brow log to slowly crumble into the  creek and drift out to sea. I frequently   visit   the   old   log   and  reminisce   about   the   past    and  wonder if some day both our remains will wash up on the same  beach. That old log was a patriarch  that has been part of my life as we  renewed aquaintahces on my occa-1  sional and very private visits. It had  'character'!  In.tne past couple of years since  1 have been away from the Coast, I  have learned new things about logs  and how they are used in the second oldest profession in the  world���the building of log homes.  A good log builder will size up a  log that is going into the house he is  building. It has to match its companion log below for size and lay,  have no blemishes in exposed  areas, nicely peeled, and all the  other characteristics that go make  up a beautiful log building. It  . has become a science and a skill  ��� developed over many years of pro-  ducing'a quality product. Yet it is a  craft that has been with us since the  beginning of time when the first log  shelter was built....   m  1 am*.stilt learning about wood  . and logs. After a couple of years of  seasoning, the moisture cells. that  are part of the molecular structure  become air cells, the finest insulator nature can produce. That is  why a log building is warm in  winter, cool in summer. Technically, the 'R' factors are very high, a  theory that our ancestors were not  aware of but share With us to this  So I am back on the Sunshine  Coast, still involved with logs, back  to many friends and old haunts,  and especially back to my beloved  ' trees.  *'  ^V  ���A  7   .

Coast News, Septembers, 1984  17.  by Robi Peters  Aquatic Director  During the directors meeting of  the Pender Harbour Aquatic  Society held Monday night at the  pool, a few major decisions were  made.  First, there will be more access  time at the pool for. area A  residents. The pool will be open  one half hour later this session.  Public and adult swim times will go  to 10 p.m. each weekday night and  to 9 p.m. on the weekend. Tuesday  and Friday will be Public Swim all .  night, keeping Adults Only, Monday, Wednesday and Thursday,  8:30 to 10 p.m.  After four years of operation the  pool required some major repair  work this*summer, which has been  ably done by local contractor Bob  Cunningham and his excellent  crew.  New programs this fall will include a synchronized swim class for  girls and boys with a grey or white  /level in Red Cross as prerequisite.  ��� This is to be instructed by our very  Customer  resents  bank's  | attitude  J Editor,  Re: Our David Wilson, manager as  of less than one month at the  Royal Bank, Sechelt, B.C.  Canada  I have been a customer, consumer of the Royal Bank since age  18. I am now somewhat older.  During the past 40 years I am  certain that the accounts of W.S.'  Roxborough and H.B. Rox-  borough have paid for at least a  couple of Golden Windows in our  Royal Bank.  My husband is a retired pilot and  vice-president from CPA���the  .Canadian Pacific Airline. I am an  ex-stewardess of CP Air and a  nurse off and on for 43 years; retaining my registered nurse's certificate in temporary retirement.  .For reasons of our own my hus-  Jband and I obtained a legal separation on July 19, 1984.  Our estate is tied up. I am run-,  ning short of funds.  I go to see my friendly Royal  Bank manager. The assistant is. on  holiday. I wait for four days. I  have, in my name, as collateral, a  1981 Datsun 280ZX, blue book  resale value, $20,000 plus. I explain  my situation, also that I have in my  name, free and clear, two and a  half acres of prime property in  Pender * Harbour. He listens but  does not smile. I ask him for a personal loan of $1,000. He smiles and  turns me down.  I ask to have all my assets moved  to the Royal Bank in West Vancouver.  I go to the Royal Bank, West  Vancouver branch, two days later.  It has not been done. It cost me $3  in long distance phone calls, Royal  Bank prices at Park Royal, to find  this out. I apply to Dale at the  Credit Union, Sechelt, for similar  amount of money. I get turned  down! He does not give me a  Reason but offers to buy my car. I  |iave at this moment opened my account at 4he Bank of Commerce,  Gibsons, and Bank of Montreal,  Gibsons.  My Pender Harbour friends,  some of them loggers and  /ishenrten, are suffering similar  fates���or worse; since their trucks  are being repossessed* depriving  them of a livelihood as well as a  beans to pay their loans.  I,' I have said farewell to the Royal  Bank of. Canada, forever!

'_';������ M-M'-MM;  The usual morning and evening  fitness classes will be held with two  levels, advanced and moderate. On  Thursday, a co-ed personalized  global gym .instruction and  guidance course will be given for 10  weeks. As this is restricted to 12  persons per class, immediate  registration is required if you want.  to ensure a place. Sally Burhill will  be instructing.  Our aquacizing on Tuesday and  Thursday, 1 to 2 p.m., will be back  by popular demand. This class is  designed for gentle exercising in the  water for people who may have to  restrict their exercise. For example,  problem backs, knees, pre and post  operations and pregnancies.  '  Red Cross, pre-school, RLSS,  water babies and adult lessons are  all on the new fall program which  you will be receiving in the mail.  "Harbour Seals*' will be back in  full swing in October. This is an excellent way for your child to enjoy.  ���competitive swimming at a  reasonable cost and with excellent  instruction.    . -.  - Family passes may be purchased  any time of year rather than just in.  January.  The directors turned down the  idea of having snack machines  dispensing chocolate bars, chips  and candy. 1, as a parent, really appreciate this decision. We are trying to promote a health and fitness  centre.  The area A taxpayers should be  proud of the local trustees of the  PHAC who volunteer their services; expertise and advice in. the  running of the Aquatic Centre.  This society usually has 12  members. They have, as a group,  tried to read the minds of the community to satisfy the needs and requirements of a growing community, at the same time keeping within  a small budget. Sometimes this can  be difficult.     .  I wish to compliment Marg  Goldrup who has stepped down as  a director, for her work on the  committee. Margaret was one of  the original starters of the pool.  She was secretary-treasurer of the  society while the pool was being  built. She will continue to play an  important role as a coach for the  Harbour Seals swim club. The executive will miss her.  ���;,- Gordon Cawley our former  president has stepped down from  his position this year due to job  commitment and his building of a  new house. Gordon's innovative  ideas investigating solar heating for  the pool, plus his promoting and  overseeing the building of the  sauna have been of great importance to our facility. Gordon's interest and enthusiasm will be missed. We hope when he completes his  projects he may find time for the  PHAS again.  We need two new trustees to  complete the board of directors. It  involves about nine meetings a  year. You do need to be an area A  resident. Yes, you do need to have  an interest in the pool and your  community. If we can count on  you, phone Joan Willcock and offer your services, 883-9185.

Coast News, Septembers, 1984  %4 Election ends .-.  by Michael Bums  The all candidates' meeting of  August 29 hosted by the Sunshine  Coast Peace Committee was attended by over 100 persons and  provided pertinent information on  the various candidates' positions  and   views   concerning   issues.  relating to peace and disarmament.  The candidates selected by lottery their seating and speaking  positions.  Michael Hicks of the Progressive  Conservatives stated that during  the campaign he had discovered  "that nuclear war was a real fear  and perceived as a real threat by  the people I spoke to. Especially  since Canada is right between the  U.S. and Russia."  He explained that the PC party  took "second place to none when  working for peace" and if elected  would lead Canada to an active  role in encouraging a balanced and  mutually verifiable arms reduction  between the two superpowers. This  could best be achieved if Canada  manifested a strong and positive  committment to NATO and  therefore a PC government would  increase Canada's frigate fleet and  the number of armed forces personnel.  Hicks pointed out that he was  not in favor of testing the Cruise  missile and would vote against it if  elected.  The second candidate to address  the meeting was Cy Peterson, of  the Communist Party, who said  ' that "If we cannot achieve  peaceful co-existence between all  countries then there would be no  existence."  He offered statistics which  showed that money spent on the  production of arms was inefficient  use of capital, for job creation and  that most jobs created were of  benefit to the Americans.  The exorbitant cost of modern  weaponry was demonstrated by the  fact that the cost of one F-14  would pay for the construction of  nine schools and that the cost of  one Trident submarine would pay  for one year's schooling for 16  million children.  The Communist Party of  Canada would ask for an immediate freeze on the production  of nuclear weapons and would promote a much stronger independent  stance for Canada. It would cut  Canada's military budget in half  and use the money saved to pay for  social services. It would cancel the  Cruise missile and adopt a "no  first use" policy. Peterson also  said, "The Communist Party supports the right of people to self-  determination and would encourage a Canadian role of non-  alignment in cases like Nicaragua  and El Salvador."  Encumbent Ray Skelly, of the  New Democratic Party, stated that  his was the only major party which  had consistently taken a strong  stand for peace and disarmament  and which had voted against the  testing of the Cruise missile.  "The NDP" said Skelly,  "would not only make Canada a  Nuclear Weapons Free Zone but  would extend that to Canadian  armed forces' participation  throughout the world." As such,  Canada would withdraw from  NATO.  He said emphatically that  "Canada should not build components for weapons nor should  we make money from such an  obscene way as the sale of arms."  The NDP would curtail the proliferation of nuclear technology.  Citing as examples countries like  India, Pakistan, Argentina and  Korea, Skelly pointed out that sales  of nuclear reactors to these countries were enabling them to join the  "nuclear club".  He questioned the fact that no  overall study of the role of the armed forces had occurred in 15 years  and said the NDP would attempt  to examine Canada's armed  presence in the light of protecting  Canada's sovereignty, the 200 mile  fishing limit, arctic archipelago and  our possible role as a peace keeping  force:  The fourth speaker was Wayne  White of the Green Party, who  said, "Nuclear war is the gravest  threat facing the world and the interest in peace is creating a rallying  cry slowly bringing sanity to  humanity."  The Green Party would cancel  LUNCH SPECIAL  11:30 a.m.-2 p.m.  S0UP&  SANDWICH  $2.95  SMOKED SALMON  AT FACTORY  PRICES  located in "The Dock", Sechelt!  ' Monday 10 till 2  [Tues. through Friday 10 till 6  ; Saturday 10 till 5   885*7677|  Canada's involvement with the  Cruise missile, would not permit  the building of components usable  in weaponry and would strongly  support a suffocation policy applicable not only to weapons but  also to uranium mining and the  construction of nuclear reactors.  White advocated an immediate  freeze on the building of new  weaponry as the first step towards  disarmament. He also stated that  although his party's position on  NATO was not yet firm, his opinion was that Canada should  withdraw since NATO linked us  too cfoseiy to Reaganomics and?  Third World, corporate exploitation.  He stated that the Green Party  believes that Canada can best play  a role as a facilitator between the  superpowers, and as such would  use the armed forces primarily for  peace keeping operations.  White also sajd, "We have a duty to learn more about both sides  and we should improve the opportunities for Soviet studies and exchanges. The philosophy of security through strength is bankrupt; we  can only achieve security through  , co-operation and understanding;  Wayne Nesbitt of the MLibefal  Party, spoke, next, stating that his  party was one of the leaders of the  peace movement and referring to  past prime ministers, St Laurent,  Pearson and Trudeau as examples:  "It doesn't matter what you may  think of Mr. Trudeau, he laid it on  the line when nobody else would."-  Nesbitt aired his belief that-the  peace issue was important enough  to transcend party politics and that  the recent move by Ottawa to  create a peace research and information centre would help all Canadians to become more aware of the  problems.  He further stated that "Canada  should not support the balance of  terror or US involvement in Central America. The mental state of  President Reagan is damned scaryf  The one consolation is that our  press tells us about him, but what  about the other side? We don't  know what they think."  If elected Nesbitt said he would  work to have his party reconsider  the Cruise'missile testing program  and encourage the movement  towards a mutually verifiable arms  reduction.  The last speaker of the evening  was Al Griffiths of the Confederation of Regions Party, who stated  that "Canada should be a  peacemaker. But Trudeau's efforts  in running around the country was  a big farce. While supposedly seeking peace he was busy promoting  nuclear reactors to create jobs in  Ontario and Quebec. We should  clean up our own back yard first."  His party holds that Canada  should participate more fully in  NATO and that our armed forces  should be capable of protecting us  to ensure we keep the freedoms we  now have.  The first all candidates' meeting  held in this riding was concerned  with peace issues and some of the  candidates pointed out that it was  fitting that their last public appearance should deal with a similar  theme. They also mentioned that  this was the first national political  campaign which gave increased  prominence to questions of peace  and disarmament.  Again no winner this week in the Guess Where.
