Array Back from Ottawa  come  Sechelt Mayor Joyce Kolibas welcomed the first in-patients to Western Moorbad Resort last week.  Mrs. Marie Wunder"'ch, left, and Mr. & Mrs. Hubert Herder, right are staying at the Driftwood Inn  while receiving two-week treatments. Seated on the mayor's left is prqpietress Anne Metzner. X XX'  ���Fran BanuMc photo;  Five fishermen from the Sunshine Coast are back home this  week after a visit to Ottawa as part  of a 120-man lobby of West Coast  fishermen who journeyed to the  ,<��� nation's capital to lobby for immediate funds for the protection of  the  West  Coast  salmon  fishing  resource.  Russell Cameron, Clay Young,  *��� ind Ray Phillips of the.UFAWU,  ! King   Griffith   of   the   Pacific'  J fTrpller's Association, and iridepen-  lydent   fisheman   John   Malcolm  >v represented the Sunshine Coast on  iJhe trip. . ,' v  X;. -A report back from the lobbyists  ���'will-'be presented . at a public  meeting in the Senior Citizens' Hall  in Sechelt on Wednesday,  February 15, at 7:00 p.m.  John Malcolm told the Coast  News that the trip to Ottawa had  been 'worthwhile iri some senses'.  "It's so far away," said  Malcolm. ."Back there they know  nothing about B.C. We made the  politicians a little more aware that  we are out here. Specifically we  made them aware of the need for  enhancement and protection of the  salmon habitat. They were  unaware that it is being consistent-  jyeroded."  - Malcolm said that both the Conservatives and the NDP parties  were helpful to the fishermen.  "The NDP men were impressive, I must say, in helping  make our cause known. The Conservatives were a little more  cautious because in all likelihood  they are going to form the next  government but some of them  stuck their necks out for us too."  Malcolm said the delegation of  fishermen tried to explain to the  Liberal members of parliament  they spoke to that they were not  seeking a 'bail-out'.  "We made the point that the  whole country will get a good  return for its investment in the  B.C. salmon industry," said  Malcolm.  A spokesman for the commercial fishermen also specifically  wanted to make plain-their appreciation of the financial and  written support of the Sunshine  Coast Regional District, which  body contributed the cost of sending one of the fishermen to Ottawa.  "These fellows take a lot pf  stick," said the spokesman, "and  they should be given full credit for  their community-mindedness in  this case.  Wo discuss lockout  Union meetings set  Restoration of Rockwood Lodge and completion of the structure on the left will provide accommodation for at least 20 in-patients taking treatments at Western Moorbad. The unique structure, designed^  and being built by George Skea Contracting, features private rooms around a covered central courtyard housing a swimming pool and "winter garden". Completion is scheduled for April 1.  At Sechelt health spa  ���Fraa Buraiide pkolo  In-patients arrive  On February 10, one year to the  day of their arrival in Canada from  (Germany, Fred Metzner and his  wife Anne welcomed their first inpatients to their unique Western  Moorbad m Sechelt.  M None of the three patients have  ever had a 'mudbath' before, but  all were born in East Germany,  moving to Canada in the 50's, and  are familiar with the treatments.  \ Mrs. Marie Wunderlich of Penticton read an advertisement about'  this moorbad, and is undergoing a  two-week   preventive   treatment.  She hopes to get relief from back  and shoulder pains, which nothing  else has helped.  Mr. & Mrs. Hubert Herder Pf  Vancouver are undergoing specific  treatments. Mr. Herder had, a  kidney operation in May, 1983,  and Mrs..Herder suffers arthritis in  her arms and shoulders. "Pills  . don't help'', they both said.  The;'. two-week treatments; include a minimum of six rhoorbads  and five medical baths, plus  medication, all under the supervision of local doctors.  "The full success of the baths  comes over the two months follow  ing the curei" said Metzner, who  noted in his address to assembled  guests that in Europe, mudbaths  are referred to as' The White ��� Industry" .because they cause no  noise pr pollution, only health.  Mayor Joyce Kolibas and Vice-  President of the Sechelt & District  Chamber of Commerce, Vic  Walters, also welcomed the guests  and praised Metzner for his contribution in making Sechelt a  "destination" for visitors.  Toasts were drunk with a Canadian champagne appropriately titled "Kurhauser" - which means, in  German, "Spa House".  SCRD money matters  MThe SCRD has received an  assessment from the Coast  Garibaldi Health Unit for fees for  service for 1984.  X This new charge "is the result of  a^change in revenue collection...  and stems from two major  factors," states a letter from Dr.  James Lugsdin, secretary of the  Health Board.  : The letter continues, "The first  is that the present system of collecting fees from the three school  districts alone is not sufficient to  pay for increased expenses.  X^Secondly, the new Health Act,  Section 51, states that all corporate  members of the board should share  the Health Board expenses."  Director Ian Vaughan immediately responded to this latest  expense being passed on to local  governments by moving that "we  not approve this assessment and  write a letter to the Minister of  Health saying we are not going to  pay for provincial government services".  ; Gibsons alderman, John Burn-  jidfei moved to table the motion  and invite Dr. Lugsdin to appear  Before the board and explain the  assessment.  ; The board also heard that of all  those whose properties were severely damaged during November  floods, the SCRD may be the only  body to qualify for provincial  government compensation.  Director Brett McGillivray  reported that information received  to date indicates there will be a  $10,000 deductible on damage to a  principal residence, a further $2000  deductible on essential contents,  and an additional $1000 deductible  on debris.    ;  None of the damaged properties  qualifies for compensation under  these stringent conditions except  the SCRD, which lost the water intake system in Chapman Creek.  McGillivray reported that the  board might be eligible for $6000 in  compensation to rebuild the temporarily repaired, water works  under a 75-25 per cent sharing  scheme with the provincial government.  Director Vaughan moved that  "Any money given to the SCRD  for water, works compensation be  put in a special fund and given to  'extreme hardship' victims of the  floods".  Other directors called his sugges-.  tion "laudable", but moved to  table the motion until they learned  the legality of such an action, and  whether they would still receive the  money if it wasn't spent on water  works.  The board also moved to. hire  Sean Reid for six months as a  research assistant to work on community plans, at a monthly salary  of $1600.  Planner Jim Johnstone  presented the board with a work  programme which Reid would  follow, and against which the  board could judge progress.  Softools budget ready  The School Board held a special  meeting last Tuesday to prepare the  finai draft of the 1984 budget for  its formal acceptance at the  meeting tomorrow at Roberts  Creek Elementary.  Owing to several oustanding  discrepancies between District  figures and Ministry assessments it  was, as has happened before, an  "if, but and maybe" situation.  Trustees decided to re-adjust the  budget tp a level consistent with the  amount they believe is owing to  this district and to use the extra  monies to return the salary budget  to its November level. This was the  last section tp be cutback and  would have resulted in reductions  in staff and/or working hours.  egotiatprs   for   theM various  s; of: the:;' ���Oaxia��a^^japexr  ^M|.;y^X��^54������iU:���Pfl^'^eet in^ucus in  *'"'"'Vmeawfa������'��� today   toM^eirmine  tjieir 'ne&itni$ein the$$eiit lock-  put iniuat^ by the Pulphand Paper  Industrial/Relations Bureau.

Planner Jim Johnstone reported  to the board last week that the  overriding consensus of all present  was that local officials should be  the ones to determine the details  and specifics of by-laws, not  ministers or staff of the provincial  government. As a result of the  meeting, the following recommendations will be passed onto the provincial government: (1) "Cash in  lieu" of the presently required five  per cent land dedication for park  purposes should be accepted when  sub-division creates four or more  lots. (2) The board of variance  often exceeds the authority given to  it, and has very little power under  the new act anyway, so should be  done away with. (Some representatives present felt it should be retained out of respect for "common  law" tradition.) (3) The many  matters , under one new docu-  ment���rezoning, sub-division,���should be retained as  separate   legal    documents.  (4) Laws and by-laws should not  be allowed to be overthrown based  on minor legal technicalities. The  'intent' of the law should prevail.  (5) Temporary permits should not  be allowed, as they tend to become  permanent. Matters should be properly dealt with in the first instance. (6) Public employees  should be protected. Approving  officers should not be liable for  minor technicalities and oversights  of which they were not made  aware. (7) The powers of ministers  to overrule land-use decisions  made by locally elected representatives should be curtailed.  pur membership in the next five  years due to technology and  modernization,", said Holland.  "We need wording in our contract  which will protect senior members  and provide them with retraining."  On the issue Pf working more  statutory holidays, the local president stress^ "Some things just  aren't for sale."  Holland feels local-resentment is  growing over the "unnecessary"  lock-out, and union negotiators  could take the position that they  won't resume bargaining until the  mills start up again.  "We maintained control and  kept production at high, even  record levels throughout nine months of negotiation," said Holland,  "then they fly off the handle over a  matter of timing. If we had wanted  a strike we could have taken the  mills down months ago."  Union negotiators found out  through the media that the industry's position is that mills won't  start up again until an agreement is  signed.  Zxx^  After keeping petitioners and members of the publice waiting for'  one hour and ten minutes while they had a closed meeting with  staff, Sunshine Coast Regional District directors emerged with a  compromise wage proposal which will see a flat rate increase of  $850 per annum go to all SCRD members except department heads.  The increase is an average equivalent of 2.2 per cent, and is effective January 1.  Ferry ramp this year  The B.C. Ferry Corporation has invited tenders for the construction of an upper level loading ramp at the ferry terminal at  Langdale. .  Tenders are being sought in order to determine the cost of the  ramp, hoped to be "somewhere between $2'/i and $4 million," according to Ferry Board Finance Committee Chairman Ken Sorko.  The corporation has not budgeted for the ramp, but "we can  borrow", Sorko told the Coast News, adding that the ramp is  deemed necessary for the efficient operation of the Queen of Coquitlam.  Cadets meeting  A very well attended and informative meeting was held at  Roberts Creek Legion Hall, on January 22, when Lt. R. Young,  Director of Cadets from Victoria, explained the training that is  available to Cadets and then answered questions from the floor.  Further information and applications may be received by contacting 886-7825.  Redrooffs meeting  Members of the public who are interested in the latest status of  Redrooffs Trail are invited to be in the public gallery at a meeting  between SCRD directors and representatives of the Ombudsman's  office, scheduled for next Thursday, February 16 at 6:30 p.m.  It is suggested that those wishing to attend confirm the meeting  time by calling the SCRD office at 885-2261.  Health forum  Members of the public are invited to a forum on Monday,  February 13, to hear Dr. Jim Lugsdin explain the mandate and  workings of the Public Health Unit.  Sponsored by the Sechelt Elementary School Parent Advisory  Group, the forum will provide an opportunity to raise questions  and concerns about recent cutbacks in public health services.  The meeting begins at 7:30 p.m. in Sechelt Elementary.  Gates hired  for job creation  Judy Gates has again been hired  as co-ordinator of Job Creation for  the Sunshine Coast Economic  Development Commission.  As such, Gates will assist groups  in developing proposals and completing applications for the various  grant and employment assistance  programmes now available.  One of the first programmes she  will be involved with is "Summer  Canada Works", which makes  money available to any employer  minimum of three summer jobs for  students. Deadline for applications  is February 24.  Gates' position becomes effective February 13, and has been  funded for 26 weeks under the  Canada Works programme. She  can be contacted at the Regional  Board office, 885-2261.  Anyone wishing assistance with  programme proposals before that  time should contact Irene Lugsdin  at the Canada Employment Cen-  ;>V 2  Coast News, February 13,1984  Congratulatiofis  Last week we found occasion to be critical of Economic  Development Commissioner Oddvin Vedo for his, it seemed to  us, over hasty support of the proposal to export bulk water  from Freil Falls in Hotham Sound.  It is doubly pleasurable, therefore, this week to be able to  offer a deserved accolade to Vedo on the occasion of the opening of Western Moorbad Resorts new health spa at Rockwood  Lodge. The health spa will bring year-round visitors to Sechelt  and is exactly the kind of development hoped for for the area.  Congratulations, also, to Fred and Anne Metzner^on the  opening of the handsome new facility, to George Skea Construction for the fine work being done in the grounds, and to  the Sechelt and District Chamber of Commerce whose  foresight, under then and present president Bud Koch, in saving the grand old building is now being so splendidly rewarded.  We owe all concerned congratulations for this most  welcome development in the midst of these difficult times.  White Elephant  Space did not permit the inclusion in this week's paper of a  report from the legislature from MLA Don Lockstead which  spells out the cutbacks in both price and quantities on coal to  be shipped to Japan from the northeast coalfields.  When the losses sustained in that development are considered in conjunction with the fact that 400 miners have been  laid off in the southeast coalfields near Fernie for lack of  markets, and with reports from Fernie of rich coal deposits lying untapped beside an existing railroad, it can be realized that  the ambitious and costly northeast development may well prove to be a gigantic w,hite elephant.  As the letter from the School Board on page three makes  plain, the social costs of the ambitious gamble will be being  measured perhaps to the end of the century.  Must grading  wait?  Mayor Joyce Kolibas is not the only one asking how long one  of the main streets of Sechelt will be left in such abysmal condition following the installation of sewer pipes to service St.  Mary's Hospital and Sechelt Indian Band lands.  It is understood and accepted that expedience demands all  paving done at the same time, when all work is completed, so  that the "batch plant" for asphalt only has to be fired up once.  But surely the contractor is expected to level out the hills and  gullies of gravel which presently make Dolphin Street and  Highway 101 an obstacle course, and which threaten to cause,  ^accidents by virtue of drivers trying to avoid them. Must we wait'  for the paving for the grading to be done?  5 YEARS AGO  Regional Board directors  sought and received the  resignation of director  Charles Lee as the chairman  of the Regional Board  Finance Committee.  Approval in principle was  given to Sechelt council for  a tourist and recreation  complex at the head of Porpoise Bay.  10 YEARS AGO  An eight year struggle to  get a through back lane between Teredo and Cowrie  streets from Wharf to Trail  Avenue has materialized for  Sechelt council. The costs  will be $22,000 to be amortized over a 20-year period.  The upper Howe Sound  area is still closed to commercial and sports fishing  for shell fish, ground fish  and crabs. The 1970 ban is  still in effect because of  above > normal mercury  levels.  15 YEARS AGO  Candles decorated the  Masonic Hall on February 6  when members celebrated  the 20th anniversary of the  Mt. Elphinstone Chapter of  the Order of the Eastern  Star.  20 YEARS AGO  Ray V. Delong of Gibsons  was elected president of the  Sunshine   Coast   Athletic  Club.  The Roberts Creek  Recreation Association is  offering the community hall  for the variety show, Fandango.  25 YEARS AGO  Port Mellon residents will  be talking to each other in a  different  manner Wednesday. That's when a modern  automatic      telephone  system, the dial telephone,  springs into operation.  30 YEARS AGO  Three   dogs   trained   in  cougar    hunting    were  brought in from Abbotsford  by the game warden in an effort to rid the community of  a cougar and her kittens.  35 YEARS AGO  Mt. Elphinstone Chapter  of the Order of the Eastern  Star   was   instituted   with  more than 70 members from  other chapters present.

Local newspapers/  where they existed, often could not reproduce photographs, and  magazines offered mainly hand-drawn illustrations. By the  1860's, large metal or hardwood cameras had begun to appear at  Pacific Northwest population centers. Professional  photographers had set up studios, and some had travelled to etch  permanent records of aboriginal and immigrant life on to their  glass or metal plates. But the general public saw or knew little of  these ponderous instruments. When, however, roll film because  available, about 1890, for box or folding bellows  cameras���almost   invariably   the   Eastman   Kodak   in   those  days���amateur "shutter-bugs" took to the fascinating device. At  a community gathering or a group outing, someone might be expected to arrive with a camera. Since film was slow, only static  scenes could be caught. In addition to some random shots, the  photographer, at some point in the day, might ask the entire  assembly to pose. A single word would freeze an entire field into  immobility. All eyes faced the "birdie". Having one's picture  taken was for real. Here was a slice of life, showing work or play  stopped at a glance forever. Prints could be consiged to an album,'  which could be looked through on many an occasion during years;  to come. Irvine's Landing, about 1920. Photo courtesy Gilbert  Lee collection. L.R. Peterson  Musings  John Burnside  I hadn't planned it that way,.but  early in the morning of Wednesday, February 8,1 woke up and got  immediately out of bed. The clpck  on the wall above the stove said ;  2:45 a.m. ���  I realized that it was a quarter to  eleven in Scotland and at that very  moment a funeral party would be  leaving the village of Mauchline in  Ayrshire,'enfoute for a cemetery  on-theM;^i^Wi^t*'dMiner of the*  Glasgow-'Moor1 in' ^ri did^ village  called Muirkirk.

There is a bleak beauty in the  . unfenced moorland and the driver  must  be wary of the semi-wild  black-faced   sheep ��� which   are  everywhere.  The road is a back road now but  it was the main road to Edinburgh  when Robert Burns left Mauchline  to make his literary name 200 years  ago. \ ':'-.  I put on the kettle for a cup of  tea and began to think and chain- '  smoke. The lady, in the casket  would have approved of the cup of  tea and vehemently disapproved of  the chainsmoking. "Smoke," she  used to say, "you can burst into  flames for all I care."  But care she did. Hers was a  lifetime of caring and there was  nothing abstract about her caring. :  The circumstances of her life were  difficult from the beginning. She  was born in a coal-mining village  called Glenbuck in 1906. The harsh  realities of coal-mining had made  hers a one-parent family in the  days long before welfare and child  support payments. Her mother fed  her four children by taking in the  laundry of her neighbours. We are  lite casket  talking here of the clothes of coal  miners scrubbed daily by hand on a  scrub board. The lady in the casket  was still very, young  when-she  M began to help her mother in the ar-  duous business of staying alive.  ���;The   luxury   of   education   was  M denied her after elementary school,  i though she was throughout her life  a reader when the brief, oases of  time made it possible. She was  also, having been denied, a passionate believer in education and  v^ged"*; with** rnixe^'success',  her  children to their schooling.  The plot to which her casket was  bound had been long picked out. It  M was'beside her husband, more than  30 years dead. She was a woman "of  fiercely-.,independent spirit who  needed rip liberation movement to  help her assert herself, but of her  husband she said simply: "I gave  , my man -breakfast in bed for '28  years and .1 would do. it for another  28 if I had the same man back  again."  When she was in her early thirties and the mother of three the  roof of the coalmine caved in and  crushed her husband. He was to  live, against the doctor's predictions, for another 12 years but  from that day on she, like her  mother before her, was the main  breadwinner in the family. She  struggled to keep her youngest son  in school while cleaning offices at  six in the morning, houses other  than her impeccable, own during  the day, and the local school after  the teachers and the students had  gone home.  In addition to the children she  bore she also reared grandchildren,  being involved in the business of  child-rearing non-stop from 1924  to 1966. In a lifetime of unremitting hardship > and inescapable  poverty she walked with a fierce  and unassailable pride and dignity  and at the time of her death had  long been one of the most  respected in the villages of. South  Ayrshire where she was known.  Despite the crushing workload  which was her lot she was ever the  first to visit the hospital, taking the  news and small gifts to neighbours,  friends,and relatives therein. Nor  did she confine herself to one bedside. Wherever there was anyone  vyho on any given visiting day did  not have visitors there she would be  giving from her inexhaustible store  of kindliness.'  The road from Sbrn runs into  the centre of Muirkirk and then the  funeral procession Would, turn left  on the Strathaven Road whichjruns  across trfe?moor north to Glasgow.  The cemetery is orf the outskirts of  the village on the left. It is a place  where many that bear one of her  names .are buried. Across the way  from her plot is the mass grave of  17 who died in a gas explosion in  the same mine that crushed her  [ husband, the names of the deceas  ed are listed there. Three of them "���  were   cousinsv and ' one.' was   a S  i  ���������'������'���:     it  brother-in-law.  The chainsmoking and the tea-  drinking go on until 4:30 a.m.  when the funeral procession minus  the casket would be heading back  through Sorn to the home of her  daughter for^jthe traditional steak-  pie funeral feast. At that hour a"19  year old, hearing the teapot  sounds, comesjdownstairs to join  his father in the living room of a  house in Roberts Creek and to hear  some stories of the grandmother he  had never met.  For the lady in the casket was my.  mother; Mary Belle Dalziel Burnside, 1906-1984. May she! rest in  peace.       .-''...

Lawrence  Maryanne's Viewpoint  Human considerations still manifest  by Maryanne West  ��� Even those who do hot know  him personally must have been  warmed, their spirits lifted, by last  week's ceremony which saw the  President and Chancellor of Simon  Fraser, University and. author  Margaret Laurence from her home  in Ontario gather at Roberts Creek  to honour Hubert E)yans.  It wasn't only the honour to a  local resident ���. which engendered  these good feelings, but also, since  it i? physically impossible for  Hubert to attend the convocation  at which the recipients of degrees  ���are honoured, the university in effect came to him. M  Large organizations do not  always retain the flexibility to react  to   situations   which   require   a  X  change in pattern from the  established norm, so we felt enormously , cheered tp know that  Simon Fraser has the ability to  adapt to individual human needs.  On the one hand it is perhaps  self understood that this is the way  caring, intelligent human beings  behave, but we are so overwhelmed  these days with negative news that  it is easy to forget...  Newspapers and the electronic  media are so pre-occupied with  doom and gloom, murder and  mayhem wherever it is to be found,  that it is easy to get a totally jaundiced view of the world and  humanity. It stands to reason that  if all you read and hear is stories of  man's inhumanity to man, deceit,  greed and violence it colours the  way you understand and react to  your environment and the people  you meet adding to your level of  paranoia, cynicism or insensitivity.  We may be less vulnerable than urban residents because we know our  neighbours and have stronger feelings of community, but we are at  the mercy of the sarnie factors.  It becames imperative that all  forms of media make more effort  to improve the balance of their  reporting, showing us a truer and  more realistic picture of bur world.  The Vancouver Sun can be complimented on its "Bright Spots"  space in which letters from people  recounting good experiences are  highlighted. We know, despite all  appearances to the contrary that  humanity isn't going to hell in a  hardcart, but it sure is re-assuring  to read these accounts of people's  care and concern for strangers,     h  I must pass on a delightful story!  I heard on the radio, it seems a new;  craze is sweeping Holland, called;  Herman   Doughball.    It   works)  something like a chain letter, you1^-  receive a small ball of spurdougbT^t:  from a friend or neighbour withI'-inM Xp  structions to mix it with sugar arid  ^  butter and keep it in the fridge for M'^  a few days until it increases in size>$��;  Then   you   add   cinnamon   andM��M  raisins and make yourself;^ loaf> ^  keeping back enough starter for'JH  another, loaf and enough to giveri?  Herman away to someone else.  .  (  Sounds like a. fun idea and a neat '',  way to get to know those new people across the street, or to extend  the hand of friendship to someone  you don't know.

Your,   Ministry   officials  'have  :: telephoned School .Boards to give  them  far less  momentous news  than that in the past few months,,  and it is our firm view that that  practice/should have been followed  on this occasion:  '.���"���;.  ���     Turning from the medium to the  message, this Board has further  ' major concerns which it feels obliged to bring to your attention. First  of all, we must make it clear that  we have consistently accepted the  need for restraint in all levels-of  government, including education.  We have also adopted a position  ��� that we neither support nor condone' the breach of contract by the.  teachers, nor indeed the parallel  withdrawal   of  services   by   our  CUPE   employees.   Having   said  that, the Board takes serious issue .  with   the; vacillation, which   has  taken place on the .topic on the  return   or   withholding   of  unds  asociated   with   non-expenditures  during the strike. ;  :���  It was immediately apparent to  this Board and its staff that the  retention of all of the unspent  funds by Mhe various School  Districts would bring with it serious  inequalities..We could see several  problems which would require skill  and sensitivity on the part of the  Ministry in their resolution if further wide inequalities in educational funding were to.be avoided.  The use of the word "further" is  deliberate by the way.  However, you announced that,  if acceptable plans were received  to balance the instructional year  for the students, the intention was  to return the withheld funds to the  individual School Districts.  This  Board, and doubtless all the others  who were struck, then spent a lot  of time, at both trustee and staff  level, evaluating various options  ahd, in our particular case, decided  to withhold three non-instructional  days from the teachers, which  would accomplish your requirements..;  Later, we heard through the  media that the government had  changed its mind and would not be  returning the funds to any School  District. From a written press  release, the reason given was the inequalities which would result in the  various School District from such  an action. Through the media we  also understand that you "knew in  advance that all Board proposals  would be unacceptable", and, if  . that is true, then you were cynically  putting this and other Boards  through an empty charade.  The Board can only view that  decision, in that context as casting-  serious   doubts   on   Ministerial  credibility and/or the quality of  staff advice to the Minister. We felt _  you should now how we feel.  On the topic of credibility, we  must also', note that Ministry  statements have referred to the  withholding of grants relating to  the teachers' salaries on the three  days of the strike, whereas what  the Ministry has done is nothing of  the kind. The Ministry has  withheld a sum of money  calculated simplistically and,  therefore, innacurately, which purports to establish the savings  achieved by the non-payment of  teachers on the strike days. Had  you been withholding grants, you  would, of course; have withheld  ratios varying from 60 to 95 per  cent of that calculation, but in fact  the Ministry has Withheld 100 per  cent and cannot under any circumstance claim to be merely  withholding grants related to unexpended salaries of teachers. What  the Ministry has done is to arbitrarily reduce their sharing ratio  in School District budgets. If your  T press release is accurate re the  ; withholding of grants associated  ��� with teachers' salaries* you need to  return money to each of the School  Districts based upon an accurate  calculation of the funds saved and  taking into account the sharing  ratio between the District and the  Province. If the intention is to'keep  the sum already withheld, which'  we concede your statutory authori-  .   ty to do, then veracity requires a  modification to your press release..  ���  Any partnership between School  Boars and the Ministry is dependent for success upon mutual trust  and respect. Reversal of your im-:  plied promise to School Districts  that strike savings would be returned to those Boards, providing your ���  requirements were met, cause us to  question   the   integrity   of   the  Minister of Education. We would  appreciate a reply.  Yours truly  Warren McKibbin  Chairman  Board of School Trustees  School District 46  Sunshine Coast  Hazard  ��� Ed. note:  This is a copy of a letter sent to  Gibsons council.  Gibsons Council  I am concerned about the steep  edge of dredging in front of my  home in Gibsons Bay. It is a great.  danger to children, and until  recently it was a fairly safe place  for them to play. Some children  come to the beach alone, their  parents may be unaware ,of the  sudden drop-off.  I Find it essential to have signs  twarning the general public of the  immediate danger to everyone,  especially since there has been a  very recent change to the beach.

JIM AND KAY MARSHALL  The Marshalls came to Gibsons  after Jim left war service in the  navy to start a plumbing business  with his brother, Jack.

If you have one to sell or  donate the school number is  883-2225.  Wouldn't it be a gas to own 24  chickens! You have a chance to.  Ask Iris Griffith or Ann Cook for  the 'how'. The 'why' is to add to  the Pender Harbour and Egmont  Bursary fund for students' futures.  GENERAL  In and out of St. Mary's are Stan  Silvey and Elvida McClelland.

Bob stressed the fact that spray-:  ing and pruning should be done  now! Neglect of this advice or to  prune much too lightly will result  in a sharp reduction in the quality  of any fruit the tree or bush would  produce.  Those who might feel that the  job of spraying and pruning is  somewhat foreign to them would,  be well advised to call in a profes-,  sional gardener who has the skill  and equipment to do this work.  The Sunshine Coast has a good  number of well qualified  gardeners/landscapers listed in the  yellow pages.  The Garden Club strives to have  at its meetings a well-qualified  speaker on some.aspect of gardening. Our club has a good number  of just such persons, and,there are  on this coast many others who are  specialists in one field or other.  Such persons have provided us  with some very fine meetings.

For those of you  who have not yet taken advantage  of the pool, swirlpool, sauna,  weight room and fitness, opportunities, here's another chance.  Fitness is offered for all levels in-.  eluding those who've had strokes  and pre and post natal mothers all  the way up to the advanced fitness  class.  That class certainly had John  Seabrook of Egmont snorting and  sweating last week. It was a delight  to have him take part and I think  that men really help balance the  class out. Adult classes will run  again and also water babies. This  class just helps mums or dads introduce their little one to the water  in a pleasant and fun way. Once a  child likes the water, it really  doesn't matter if they get good or  bad teachers���they'll always like it.  I think the same might be said of  education. If a child finds out how  exciting learning and discovery is in  the first couple of years then it's in  them. That's why the primary  grades especially need top notch  teachers. Anyway, drop in or  phone the pool and see what they  have to offer you.

CHIMNEYS  Ken Cole has taken over the  chimney cleaning duties for Har  bour Chimney but there has been a  mix-up >vith the: telephone tape  that tells you what an old number  has been changed to. For that  reason and to prevent any more  chimney fires let me.say that the  new number is 883-1112.  As our last fire call was a  chimney fire it might do.well to  check for soot deposits now. When  the weather warms up we tend to  damp our stoves down lower and  that's usually when the creosote  builds up.  CANADA WORKS  near tneres a strong possibility of a  Coast Lottery being formed.

One was the  site of our new golf course just past  Lions Park. 1 really agreed with  Val Tomkies' efforts to try and  have Hydro help us out with a  community project in return for  leaving our beautiful area with  what I consider to be an eyesore.  Pender was where it happened, yet  this community received few  benefits from their stay here. Just  gas, repairs and rentals. There  might still be time. The other project was at Gib and Sophie's at  Ruby Lake Resort where they are  clearing brush for a better area  near all the motel units which are  presently being renovated. When I  think of more progress I think of  A.C. Building Supplies' new addition for their plumbing and electrical section.. Why, one might ask,  are all these places going at it now  when things have seemed so doom  and gloom in this Harbour. I'll tell  you why, because the first basis for  economics and commerce is this;  "Nothing happens until somebody  sells something". Shopping and  tourism have to be more inviting  right here in ourown Harbour and  then of course we don't want to  miss the Expo 86 boat. There are  some skeptics who think that boat  won't come to the coast. Well,  think again and while you're at it  ask yourself what you have to offer  "just in case" the boat arrives.

But that's just part of  the story. Summer employment is  also the best way to get the kind  of experience that makes it easier  to eventually find a full-time job.  Employers who hire students  help to develop skills that will  benefit them in the future.  The Government of Canada  will assist sponsors of Summer  Canada Works projects with a.contribution towards student wages  and job-related overhead costs.  YOU CAN HELP TO CREATE  JOBSFORSTUDENTS  THROUGH SUMMER  CANADA WORKS PROJECTS  Summer Canada Works projects  provide productive employment  for local students. Projects should  employ at least three local students and should produce goods  or services to benefit the community. All jobs must be full-time  and must last between six and 18,  consecutive weeks during the  summer.  ARE YOU ELIGIBLE  FOR FUNDING?  Community and volunteer groups,  professional and technical associations, most local governments  and private sector employers are  eligible for Summer Canada  Works funding.

They had a-wonderful holiday and were surprised one  day while walking along a street in  La Paz to hear a voice call out "Hi  Sechelt". It turned out to be Mr.  and  Mrs-  J��hn Csiky of West  fielt. Small word, isn't it!  fsij THOSE SINGERS:  <Qur local musical lady Nikki  'eber has .recently been approached by many folks who enjoy singing and would love to become in-   ���  i  I,  volved with the Halfmoon Hams.  It's a shame that Nikki isn't able to  spread herself out a bit more she  she already has her hands full with  the groups she already has hard at  work. Trouble is that as far as the  Hams are concerned Nikki can only handle the present number  because of mikes and sound equipment. Maybe one day some of the  present group willdrop out and  may be replaced, but that's not too  likely as it is enjoyed so much by  all.  * But you can always join in the  fun by attending the next show  some time in the spring;,  A NICE USELESS BRIDGE:  There has been a great deal of  consternation in the  neighbourhood about the fact that  the bridge on the Redrooffs Trail  has just had a beauty treatment in  the way of a nice paint job carried  out by the highways department.  People wonder why, when the  only ones who can use it, are the  small group who had the trail cut  off from public use.

CHATELECH TAKES OVER  COURTROOM  The Sechelt courtroom was  crowded to hear the case of drug.  possession levied against Tom  Brogue. Marijuana and cocaine  had been found in his bathroom by  ��� Constable Hampstead. The constable was led there by one David .  Benning.who had been caught in  the mall with an ounce of the weed.  . This was not for real, but an re-  enactment of a court case by the  law class students from Chatelech  secondary school in Sechelt.  Entertainment, value rated as  "A" as did the performance of the  students. Teacher Mike Smeaton  filmed the event for further  classroom discussion. Thanks.were  ,. extended;}tp Crbwn Prosecutor  l2!^bny^RQ^ley,; lawyer, ^boiig-  Fairweather and Bill Grandagej  who took such an interest and  assisted with procedure.  Presiding judge was Anne  Fisher, crown prosecutor counsel  were Susan Perry and Andrea Rayment; for the defense the lawyers  were Dinos Grames and Jay Seigo.  Court clerk was Philip Nelson and  ��� bailiff was Dave McLeod.  The part of the accused, Tom  Brogue was played by Ted Kozij.  Witness David Benning was in  reality Calvin Martin, Wally  Brogue was played by Chris  Slatekual, Sandra Volsky was Lori  Brock. The constable was played  by Sergio Tomasi.  Then, of course, there were 12 of  their peers who made up the jury;  Judy Morin, Shelly Poole,  Margaret Connor, Kelly Bull, Liz  Schulberg, Panos Grames, Theresa  Ladner, Alex Henry, Michelle  Grognet, Teresa Matthaus, Cynthia Watson and a volunteer from  Sechelt elementary.  This was not a prepared script.  Each participant, as in a regular  trial, knew the pertinent facts but  . didn't know the responses from  each other. This resulted in some  hilarious moments, especially with  the expressions on the faces of the  students Mas some unexpected  responses were heard from the  judge or the witnesses.  The jury found Brogue not guilty-   :x  BUSINESS AND  PROFESSIONAL WOMEN  The third Tuesday, February 21,  the dinner meeting for the.

Our fire  department is constantly being called out to fight chimney  fires, or fires of a more serious nature caused by an  overheated chimney.  All too many people are not protecting themselves from  these hazards. They should have their chimneys cleaned out  frequently (once or twice a year) or regularly use a soot  eliminator.  Wood causes a creosote build up which will not only af-  feet the draft efficiency, but when it catches fire can cause  "HEALWIN"  Catelli ^  lasagna   -^5oo gm.95  Ocean Spray \>wi��^.k*^  cranberry ^W  sauce    .. ..398mi 1.29  ���*' '������'���''��� ���"��������� .  r" u ���  Baggies  sandwich  bags ioo-sl.49  Hershey Ti ��(�����''"*''  chocolate  ChipS .350 gm 1.69  Bicks - Polski or Garlic  dill  pickles....nun 2.09  far reaching damage to the chimney itself, and/or set fire to  the house.  Gil causes a different kind of soot, long stringy stuff  which adversely affects combustion and causes increased  fuel costs, but it can be explosive and/or cause chimney  fires as well.  This article is prompted by a visit from Walter Deros of  Action Furnace Service, Sechelt. As a furnace serviceman,  he tells me he has been called out numerous times to tend to  furnace problems which are nothing more than a soot build  up, ��� particularly in the combustion pots.  He became interested in various types of chemical soot  removers. As a result, after a period of testing he has  become associated with a company known as Nu Klecn  Resource Ltd. He is the distributor for B.C. and has appointed us as one of his agents.  Shop with confidence.  Our prices are very competitive.  We will not be undersold  on these advertised items.

With his library, at least, safe  from the evictors, Bird gives  thought to the matter of maintaining some sort of roof over his head.  "As I waited for the end," he  recollects, "I began building a  makeshift cabin on an abandoned  float that was moored near my  place. There was a crab man who  owned a giil-netter just round the  point. I hoped to have him tow me  to some isolated spot on the North  Shore where I could tie up."  As Jack Bird was finishing off  this jerry-built shelter, a reporter  comes along the beach, carrying a  recorder. "I'm getting comments  from you people who are getting  burned out,'.' he announces cheerfully. "Do you have anything to  say?"  Jack Bird was under such tension by this time, he has no clear  recollection of how he responded.  "I think I told him-that I was  fighting for my very existence," he  says.  Time has almost run out for the  doomed colony. Jack Bird is ready  to retreat to the North Shore on his  hastily-assembled getaway raft. He  walks around the point to enlist the  crab man's help. But Bird's plans  are rudely dashed. When he finds  out there is to be no money in it for  him, the mercenary crab man flatly  Arts Centre concert  refuses to make the tow.  Jack Bird is now reduced to utter  desperation. The burning of the  colony is due to take place that  Sunday. Bird can only think of one  way to preserve his remaining  possessions. He carries them up into the thick brush behind the colony and makes a hopeless bivouac  in the second-growth woods. Here  he will hide for five days in a state  of utter despair, subsisting primarily on a diet of salmonberries.    -  Below his hiding place, the  burning-out takes place as scheduled. The Harbour Authorities begin  at the eastern end of the shack  community and begin sjfctematical-  ly razing it: to the grounds The  flames ilick hungrily from cabin to  cabin, reducing them to black  heaps of ashes and charred pilings.  Jack Bird's humble home goes up  in smoke with the rest, as does the  waterlogged raft pfvliis Robinson  Crusoe dreamsvM The [. Burnaby  squatters' colony is rib; more. It i&v  an event of little historical moment  except to the displaced foreshore  dwellers themselves.  Gradually Jack Bird gets over  the shock of it all and begins to put  the pieces of his life back together.  For a time he works for the  aforementioned Herbert Emerson  Wilson as a barker in a crime  museum. Eventually, he teams up  with a carpenter and his wife and  moves permanently to Texada  Island, Work is more plentiful  here. Bird retrieves his books and  establishes'a new home base. It is a  happier and more stable life than  he. once, knew on the Burnaby  foreshore.  Thus, Jack Bird, the man who  would be Crusoe, Mias found his  : island. HeMe he lives with his vast  library, his spuvenirs, his sea paintings and his memories. It is not  perhaps, exactly what he .had in  mind when he built his illVfated raft  but life, at the best of times, is a  business of compromises.

At that time all it consisted  of was one solitary unpaved, dry  and dusty street that, running  parallel to the seashore, had been  hacked through the dense jungle  and was fringed on both sides by  small shops whose.proprietors were  for the most part- Chinese. These  people seemed to be fully occupied  during the daylight hours in chasing the monkeys away from the  few goods they had on display.  According to the story totd me  later, Dungun owed its existence to  the fact that some time during the  war years two American soldiers,  one a G.I. and the other ah officer  who happened to be a geologist,  had stumbled on a mountain that  was literally speaking pure iron  ore. At the conclusion of  hostilities, they had returned to  Malaysia and, with financial backing from the States and permission  .from the local sultan, had not only  staked put all the area surrounding  the deposit but were now busily  engaged in getting it down to the  sea by means of a hastily built and  still primitive railroad track.  The harbour being very shallow,  we had to drop anchor about half a  mile offshore and the ore was  brought out to us in lighters. It was  all manual labour and, once again,  it was noticeable that most of the  workers were Chinese with a  sprinkling of Indian coolies. As far  as I could determine there were ho  Malayans involved and, in view of  the intense heat and humid conditions prevailing, I cannot say I  blame them for their refusal to take  part in what was possibly, to them,  another of the white man's crazy  'get rich in a hurry' schemes:  As I have said before, we were  anchored of fshore and so could get  an occasional breeze, but still the  heat was stifling and we were drenched iri perspiration all the time.  There was no relief after nightfall,  in fact I think it got worse if  anything. The only means of getting ashore was by taking one of  the lifeboats from the ship and going iri an organized party with an  officer in charge.  To add to the inconvenience,  most of the Malaysian area at that  time was far from peaceful. Communist guerillas were extremely active and the British authorities had  their hands full trying to suppress  them. There was a curfew from  dark to dawn. Everybody had to be  off the streets as the guerillas made  sporadic raids out of the jungle and  killed indiscriminately anyone they  saw. Also once we were ashore  there was a sad lack of variety in  the liquid refreshments available.  All the Chinese shopkeepers had to  offer was Holland's gin (John de  Kuyper) and Norwegian bock beer.  The former was horrible tasting  stuff and the latter was lukewarm,  but being seamen and used to our  , grog, we swallowed our prejudices  along with the booze and, due no  doubt to the heat, got thoroughly  plastered in short order.  I recall one night when, having  missed the boat on which I was  supposed to return to our ship and  being well aware of the curfew law,  I took refuge in a bawdy house of  sorts that was run by an ancient  Chinaman. The charge for all night  was one carton of American  cigarettes which cost us on the ship  about 90 cents. My sojourn in this  establishment was rudely interrupted when it was raided by a  military patrol. Aided by my  Malaysian girlfriend for the night,  I managed to escape through a side  door and, after stumbling around  in the pitch blackness, ended up on  a sandy beach and there I spent the  night'.  On awakening at daylight with a  throbbing headache and one of the  most monumental hangovers I  have ever experienced, I suddenly  became aware that there was certainly something funny going on  out on the water. The village of  Dungun was situated on a small  river that emptied into the sea at  about the spot where I was lying:  What fascinated me was the fact  that, while most of the debris  seemed to be moving in a seaward  direction, certain larger pieces  resembling logs were reversing the  process and proceeding up river.  At first I thought I must be having  a mild case of the D.T.'s but as my  vision cleared I realized that this  We are  how  M v����^^S^^"iAi!W5^L*? ���������  - served from 6:30-11 a.m.-  NEW HOURS  - closed Mondays  ;Sun. & Weekdays    6:30 a.m. -9:00 p,m.  ^  Fri. & Saturday    6:30 a.m. -10:00 p.m  sx*- * +*^~v*r~,'\ <,*���"*$������"?

Washington reminds iis again that  children are dying needlessly on  B.C. highways.  B.C. Minister of Transportation  and Highways, Alex Fraser, is now  on record as saying mandatory  seatbelts in B.C. buses is a future  possibility.  However, Mr. Fraser is neglecting another life-saving gap whose  solution is as close as the pen on his  desk.  As it stands, B.C.'s seatbelt law  demands that anyone over the age  of six be buckled up. But the very  young - those who cannot make  this life-saving decision for  themselves - are not protected by  law.  We all share in the grief for  Adam Kerr, whose young life was  lost on Mt. Washington. Yet, in  1982, 897 children under six years  of age were killed or seriously injured in B.C. traffic accidents - 17  killed, 880 injured. We know that  infant and child restraints, when  properly used, can reduce fatalities  by 90 per cent and disabling injuries by 65 to 70 per cent.  The highways minister has  publicly agreed that seatbelts save  lives. Yet, the piece of paper that  would prevent this ongoing annual  carnage has been sitting on his desk  and, despite the urgent pleas of  various agencies, he has thus far  refused to sign it.  The BCMA has once again written Mr. Fraser, urging him to act.  And once again, we ask all B.C.  citizens to insist their government  provide laws that protect all lives,  especially those of our children.  Norman E. Hamilton, M.D.  Chairman  Emergency Medical  Services Committee  Narcolepsy charged  Editor  Does the Coast News believe  that its duty is to support unions  and non-development, no matter  what the issue may be?  Your lead editorial mentions the  lock-out of pulp workers that will  cost the province ten million  dollars a day. Not long ago you  were supporting the BCGEU and  Solidarity in their bid to cripple the  province. Are the figures in on how  much that fiasco cost?  Oddvin Vedo and his attempt to  ship water to the US are the butt of  your second editorial joke! The environmental kinks may not have  been worked out yet, hi- which  case, don't sell the water. My belief  is that if we can get the space shuttle 'there and back' then we can get  the water to the US and some jobs  for the Coast, without darnaging  the oyster beds.  .Your editorial policy is; symp  tomatic of the narcolepsy which  has infected many individuals on  the Coast.  Wm. Lucas  Ed. note:  Should we have slammed the  unions because they were locked  out? The Solidarity Coalition was a  political protest against some of  the most dangerously antidemocratic legislation brought forward in a Western country. Can  Mr. Lucas differentiate between  politics and economics?  The point in objecting to the  water export is that it creates no  jobs here. It is not development - it  is exploitation. We are in support  of the real development  represented by Mariculture,' the  best hope of a viable economic  future here on the coast. Mr. Lucas  is unconvincing in his portrayal of  the wide-awake man.  f"*"^iS$Sl'     V V->ftv.>l*:y-..'v3 Sty  Editor X--"r/X:'X-[XX:    '$  Recent media coverage'regarding B;C.

Arbitrator, Mr. Peter Butler,  made a binding ruling in favour  of   Pennyfarthing   and   appointed J.C. Kerkhoff & Sons  as the contractor.  We wish to point out that the  project is not a credit union project  but a Pennyfarthing Development  Corporation project. The agreement between Pennyfarthing and  B.C.

Regional District. The  meeting was co-chaired by Russell  Crum, chairman of the Economic  Development Commission, and  Stan Anderson, chairman of the  Expo '86 Committee.  Jennings and Shaw opened the  meeting by showing'the assembled  the film "Expo '86*'. They told the'  meeting that 26 countries are  already signed up for Vancouver's  1986 international transportation  fair, with 40-42 international participants expected when the fair  opens.   ���  "25 acres have already been added to the site to accommodate the  expected demand," said Jennings.  Noting that at the time of the,  meeting there were 816 days left  until the gates of Expo '86 opened,  Jennings said that the bulk of the  15-20 million visitors was expected  to come from the West Coast of  the United States and from across  Canada. The breakdown of visitors r  is expected to be 60 per cent Canadian, 30 per cent from the United  States, and JO per cent from  Europe and Japan.  After the presentation by the Ex- s  po '86 officials, chairman Stan '  Anderson introduced Vince  Bracewell who is the chairman of  the Outdoor Recreation committee. Bracewell briefly sketched the  outdoor attractions available to  visitors of the Sunshine Coast.  Finance committee chairman  Art McGinnis told the meeting that  an application.for a local lottery as  the main source of funds was  underway. Sergeant D. Burke of  Sechelt said there would be no problem with three money lotteries per  j  year, estimating that 50 per cent of  the money raised would be prize .  money, 35 per cent for the nonprofit society to be formed by the  Expo'86 Committee, and 15 per  cent for administration. M  Promotions chairman Richard  Tomkies suggested that the Sunshine Coast should be promoted as  a tranquil rural place in.which to  relax after a day at Expo'86. He  pointed out that Gibsons, for example, was closer in, terms of  travelling time,; utilizing hovercraft  to the harbour front site, than 90  per cent of the places around Vancouver.  ���  Lyn and Bruce Vernon of the  Arts and Hospitality Committee  made several suggestions as to haw  the needs of visitors resting here'  from the rigours of the giant fair  could be accommodated.

Among the bylaws, Number 483  provided for the control and licensing of dogs, superceding the 1976  bylaw. The bylaw was returned to  committee for the reconsidering of  fees for de-sexed canines. The  bylaw decorously defines all canine  pets over six months old as dogs.  Leashes may be no longer than  three metres, and of course, one  end of the leash must be attached,  to the dog and the other to a  human. Dogs may not be parked  within three metres of any travelled  roadway or path - which seems to  put the iron railing at the post office out of bounds. Guide dogs are  exempt from all bylaw regulation.  Three or more dogs may not be  kept by any one owner.  Bylaw No. 487 provides for the  borrowing of up to $410,000 for  fire protection facilities in the West  Howe Sound F.P.D.  The 15 year term of the borrowing means slightly higher annual  payments but over $100,000 less in  interest. Town hall reports, incidentally, that the recent damage  to the new fire truck is covered for  all but $1000 deductible. A bylaw  to increase water rates got first  reading. Domestic rates will be  $5.40 a month, and although the  bylaw includes rates for meters,  there is no likelihood, because of  cost, of meters ever being put in  service for domestic use.  From the mixed salad of correspondence a few selections  follow.  The B.C. Ferry Corporation's  use of 'formidable' and 'excessive'  to describe operational deficits of  nearly $10 million in this region  met with strong protest from alderman Burnside. "There are many  ferries in this province, on the Arrow and Kootenay Lakes, for instance, that cost the traveller no  fare and where there are often  alternate routes by road as well.  ' Yet here where there is no alternate  road route, we pay a high fee and  have restricted service. We should  protest long and loud the excessive  and inequitable tax imposed on us  by way of ferry fares."  Two letters from Small Craft  Harbours Branch disclose that the  Ocean Pearl will have to be berthed  at the new marina since deep-  enough dredging could only be afforded in that area.  "So they dump a new problem  on us", said Mayor Labonte.  . The letter did add that such deep  draft vessels can find moorage in  Steveston. The other letter said  that the dredge could not reach a  two metre depth in certain areas on  the southern boundary of the  marina basin because the bottom is  a "cemented cobble". The letter  suggested that moorage arrangements be organized to make  the marina usable without further  special dredging.  Other correspondence included a  letter from Gibsons Sea Cavalcade  requesting among other requirements the dates 3, 4, 5,  August. The letter was referred to  committee.

The  first change that was made was that  the name of the club would be  changed to the Gibsons Rugby and  Athletic Club and it was decided  that the membership of the club  --4vould,Tbe-thrown-open to other  amateur athletes in the Sunshine  Coast'area, . .    ���' .XXX'  Negotiations   have   now   been  concluded with the town of Gibsons and the Gibsons Rugby and  Athletic Club has arranged to lease  the Armour's Beach Hall to provide clubhouse facilities and as a  base for fund-raising in anticipation of assisting in construction of  a permanent clubhouse, changing  room, and washroom facilities at  Brothers Park at some future date.  Since the Gibsons Rugby Club  was the founding partner in this  new organization it was decided  that the new name should reflect  that   and  the  interest that  the  membership had in expanding our  base   to   include   an   all-round  ahtietic   organization,    it   is  now  hoped  that  other amateur  athletic organizations on the Sunshine Coast will become members  and active participants in the newly  formed organization.  A clubhouse committee has been  formed within the club to arrange  for and organize a plan to allow for  construction of facilities at  Brothers Park. This committee is  made up fo Leif Mjanes, Geoff  Madoc-Jones, Geoff Power, John  Sutherland and Bill Grisenthwaite.  Information regarding the activities of the clubhouse committee  will be forthcoming at regular intervals.  The rugby portion of the club  will begin the second half of their  season with a game against  Tswassen at Tswassen on Saturday, February 4, with the first  home game being on February 11  at 11:30 a.m., Elphinstone School.  At that time the opposition will be  the Capilano Rugby Club. -  [ The Gibsons Rugby and Athletic  Club hope to continue to involve  athletes from the whole Sunshine  Coast area and anyone with questions can contact Bill Grisenthwaite  at 886-7524, Clint Fox, 886-3739,  dr John Sutherland at 885-5426.
