Array LEGISLATIVE LIBRARY  Parliament Buildings  VICTORIA, B.C.  V8V 1X4  8SA  Special Honoured Band Elder Mrs. Mary Jane Jackson and Chief  Stanley Dixon stand behind the Commemorative Plaque and in  .front of three figures carved by Francis (Frankie) Moody Dixon  which were unveiled in the grounds of the band's community hall at  :-a ceremony Sunday, September 30. The "Father Figure" in the  centre, carrying a Talking Stick, signifies the authority of the leader  of the family or clan and the band's desire to govern itself. The  International success!  "Mother Figure" on the right represents the Indian Culture. The  "Young Warrior Figure" oh the left reminds Indians that they  must fight hard within themselves to regain integrity, revive their  culture and remember their heritage, or they will become as faceless  as these carvings. The Commemorative Plaque gives a history of  the Sechelt people and a pledge f|r the future.  ;,; ���Fran Burnside pholo  Local musician  by Gwen Robertson, 886-3780  ' r - The caption in the Vancouver  Sun  of September 24,  front  hits high note with win at  British Competition". The caption refers to Jon Kimura  Parker who had just won the  Leeds International Pianoforte  Competition and who, ih his exuberance over winning, had  kissed the Duchess of Kent,  patron of the event, on both  cheeks. Parker had just made  musjcal history be becoming the  first Canadian to win the  21-year old competition.  XX Probably the proudest lady in  Gibsons today is Jessie Morrison, who was Jon Kimura  Parker's first piano teacher  from age four years to nine  when he graduated with grade  nine at the Toronto Conservatory of Music. Jessie proudly  showed me his photo on a franv  Symphony Orchestra concert on  which Jon had written "for  Jessie with Love, to the lady  who began my love affairs with  music", July 1984. Jon's father  is re-taping all of his music and  will be giving the tapes to Jessie  for safe-keeping.  Jessie Morrison is still  teaching music in Gibsons: her  youngest pupil is aged two years  and three months and her oldest  is aged 84. Jessie has told me  that she likes to begin teaching  when a child is around three and  she has" a very unique method of  teaching young people to identify notes with colour.  Jessie has translated music to  colour - or colour to music!  Those of us who have been  privileged to have b$en guests in>  her fiome-havle^-ama_��d aiui  excited by a painting of "The  Lord's Prayer" which Jessie has  painted by colour identification  of each note.  The painting is beautiful, for  Jessie is also an accomplished  artist, but when she traces the  matching colour to the notes of  the accompanying music, one is  struck with awe. Black is, 6f  course, dead of sound and white,  is the melding of all colour (or  notes). The key of "C" is red  and each colour or note flows  from it. Seeing, and hearing is  truly an experience. Thirty-six  music   teachers   from   British  k. Coli|mbia tried to find fault  M wiffi' the   concept   but   none  co'uld. The patent is, of course,  Jessie Morrison advises that  Jon Kimura Parker trained at  the Juilliard School of Music  and that he won the Gina  Bachauer Memorial Competition twice. He will be performing in Chicago, New York,  Philadelphia, Toronto, London, Hong Kong, Leipzig, New  Zealand, Israel, South Africa,  South America and in Vancouver. He has won more than  200 local, national and international competitions. Many of  Jessie's former pupils have  achieved recognition but none  to equal that of young Jon  Kimura Parker.  St. Mary's feels the pinch  Tough times face our hospital  The annual general meeting  of St. Mary's Hospital Society  recorded another highly successful year of operation for the  facility, but the financial picture  for the future indicates that difficult times lie ahead.  : The report of chairman of the  board Mr. Guy Lewall noted  that total patient days had increased at St. Mary's by approximately 1,000 oyer the  previous year. According to  chief of staff Dr. Rand  Rudland, there has been a  decrease in the number of  newborns, in-patients and acute  stays, and a large increase in  long-term care days and outpatient services. There has been  athree per cent decrease in both  physiotherapy and emergency  visits. Surgical in-patient services have reduced by 11 per  cent, while a seven per cent increase in day surgery has been  noted. .  Mr. Lewall reported that suffer standards for accreditation  by introduction of a formal  quality assurance program  resulted in a consultant being  brought into the hospital for a  short time to assess St. Mary's  situation. Mr. Lewall was pleas-  ed'to report that a very large  percentage of the program is  already in place at St. Mary's  and a formal plan has been  prepared to complete the remainder of the requirements  well before the next accreditation survey is due in 1986.  Mr.' Stuart Mitton of the  Building, Expansion and Properties Committee reported very  little progress on the building  program for the new extended  care unit. Final plans have been  sitting in Victoria for months  awaiting approval for the calling of tenders, but the capital  expenditure freeze imposed by  the provincial government is  still in effect and there is no indication it wil be lifted until  1985 at the very earliest.  The Building Committee will,  however, "continue to  lobby...the govement...to keep  our needs constantly before  them to be sure we are not overlooked when funds to become  available for hospital expansion."  During the past year a new  roof was put on the main  hospital building and the  nurses' residence, and the exterior walls of the hospital were  steam cleaned. The grounds  have been maintained to their  "usual high standards".  The six branches of St.  Mary's Hospital Auxiliary  volunteered in excess of 44,685  hours during the last year, with  a membership of 374 and 28  juniors.  Increased sales were recorded  in the hospital gift shop. The  Thrift Shop continues to be the  auxiliary's greatest source of income, with bazaars, merry-go-  round bridge, luncheons, raffles, catering, boutiques and  Christmas greetings contributing also.  In addition to hundreds of  hours of volunteer service in the  various departments of the  hospital, the auxiliary contributed $55,000 towards  hospital equipment, plus many  extras such as a desk, tables for  the extended care unit, a corn  popper, ice cream maker, communion cloth, croup tent,  laprobes, bursaries, a spoon fpr  the New Year's baby, a camera  and sheep skins.  The report of treasurer Tom  Meredith was in healthy black  ink, recording a surplus of  $42,007 as of the end of the  fiscal year, March 31, 1984.  This amount was less than one  per cent of total revenue. All  controls instituted during the  last two years to cope with fiscal  restraint are still in effect, and  administrator Nick Vucurevich  and business manager Wayne  Robinson were congratulated  for their "excellent stewardship  and attention to all the affairs  of the hospital" while avoiding  any diminishment in patient  care.  The current financial year  does not look so healthy,  however, and Vucurevich subsequently told the Coast News he  is anticipating a "large deficit of  $80,000 to $90,000" for the  period April 1, 1984 to March  31, 1985.  He is not particularly worried  about this, however, as the  deficit this year can be covered  by the $42,000 surplus from the  1983/84 fiscal year, and by an  additional surplus brought forward from the year before that.  A deficit of $43,000 had been  projected for the current year,  based on cuts in government  funding  Other      factors      have  significantly and unexpectedly  increased the projected deficit.  One is a reduction in the  technical fee paid by Medical  Services Plan of B.C. for ultrasound examinations by $14.50  per examination. This is expected to result in a total  decrease in revenue to the  hospital of approximately  $20,000.  Members of St. Mary's board  of trustees are: chairman, Guy  Lewall; vice-chairman, Mrs.  Jane Sorko; treasurer, Tom  Meredith and directors Al  Wagner, William Roxborough,  Mrs. Isobel Gooldrup, Pat  Murphy, Stuart Mitton, Mrs.  Charlotte Raines, Graham  Craig, Mrs. Judy Malnarick,  Stan Anderson, Don Macklam,  Mrs. Helen Home and newly  elected Harry Cargo, who  replaces retiring Don Stuart.  At Gibsons Council  It's business  as usual  by Dianne Evans  After the excitement of the  Gibsons Marina weekend, it  was business as usual at the Gibsons town council meeting last  Tuesday night.  First on the agenda was  Mayor Laurent Labonte's proclamation of Eye Appeal Weeks  in the town of Gibsons, from  October 1 to 13. The CNIB has  requested, and been granted,  permission to conduct an appeal  for funds in this area; these  funds are to aid the blind and  visually impaired.  In answer to a letter received  from Mr. Ray Boothroyd of the  Twilight Theatre, the council  again reiterated its position, one  supported by the SCRD, on the  proposed - south extension of  Sunnycrest Road. Both bodies  are opposed to such a proposal  and the department of highways  has been approached to amend  the street network plan.  New procedural regulations  concerning the municipality's  dealings with the agricultural  land commission were welcomed by council: where the lands  concerned lie within the  municipal boundaries, the  council will now be able to deal  directly with the commission,  instead of going through the  SCRD. It was felt that the  ALC's position is softening  slightly, especially insofar as  there is little prime agricultural  land within the municipal boundaries.  Alderman Bill Edney suggested a proposal be made to  allow, two, acre lots for ....self-.  sufficiency cultivation in the  area to make what land there is  more productive. Mayor  Laurent Labonte indicated that  a report on this matter would be  forthcoming. The town planner, Alderman Buchan, mentioned that lately there have  been an increasing number of  inquiries for commercial  greenhouses.  Of interest to local telephone  subscribers was the report from  Alderman Neilson that the  UBCM, at their recent conven-;  tion, has passed a resolution op-;  posing the de-regulation of  telephone services in the pro-;  vince. The unfortunate results  of de-regulation in the U.S.A.;  and the resulting increases in  costs to the consumer, parM  ticularly in rural areas, has led  to this decision. This is good  news is light of the October  CRTC hearings.  Alderman Marshall reported  that a successful well has been  drilled and tested. The new  sewer plant is operating at 100  per cent, efficiency, although  there have been some gear problems, now overcome. Local  motorists will be pleased to hear  that Payne Road has been partially paved as have some of the  roads near Avalon.  Mrs. Lenor Inglis has been  appointed Returning Officer for  1984. It was pointed out by  Alderman John Burnside that  the town staff, who acted as  returning officers in the last  election, were reluctant to do  so, and most certainly did not  do so for their own financial advantage.  There is a full agenda for the  Planning Committee meeting  October 10, including a visit  from Mr. Doug Roy, who���wiU  present an up-date on the street  numbering project, and some  discussion on its implementation in the town of Gibsons.  Assessments slip  in Secheit  News from the B.C. Assessment Authority that total 1985  property assessments in the  village of Sechelt are down by  $2.4 million from last year was  not welcomed by Sechelt council.  Village clerk Malcolm Shanks  informed the Coast News that  the 1984 tax rates applied to the  1984 total assessment of  $58,641,100 raised revenue for  the village in the amount of  $228,000.  This is only the village's portion of taxes raised. Revenue  also went to the school board,  hospital board, regional board,  assessment authority, fire  department and municipal  finance authority.  Assessed values for 1985 are  down 4.09 per cent to  $56,240,650. If the 1984 tax rate  is applied, a corresponding 4.09  per cent decrease in tax revenues  would mean 19,300 less in the  village's coffers in 1985.  Recent   calculations   by  finance   committee   chairman:  Ann Pressley estimated that, if:  both revenues and non-capital*  expenditures remained the sanie:  in 1985 as in 1984, the village:  would   have   only   $17,000:  available   for   capital   public:  works projects. The decrease in:  revenue by $9,300 would leave:  less than $8,000 available for:  such purposes, and less than  that   if  maintenance   expenditures increase.  Clerk Shanks has not yet had  time to ascertain if the assessment decrease has been "across  the board", the same percentage applicable to both commercial and residential properties  alike. The tax rate for commercial properties is approximately  two and one half times that of  residential properties.  r  Bazaar for seniors  Aldersprings Centre, formerly the Adult Day Care Centre,  is holding a bazaar and bake sale in the United Church Hall  in Gibsons from 2 to 4 p.m., October 13.  Katimavik invites  The new group of Katimavikers, located on 1555 Sargent  Road, Gibsons would like to invite Gibsons residents to their  Open House to be held on October 14 between 2 and 4 p.m.  If you want to know what Katimavik is all about, please  come. A light snack will be served.  Area F meeting  All residents of area F are invited to a meeting of the APC  (Advisory Planning Commission) on Monday, October 15,7  p.m. in Langdale school.  On the agenda will be matters of general interest to area F  residents, including ferries and sewers. Coast News, October 8,1984  f  Socred Report  How is our provincial government doing these days.  Visitations from the Pope and the Queen and the federal  election have combined to keep our provincial leaders off  the front pages of late. You have to look elsewhere to find  news of their doings.  On the front business page of the Vancouver Sun, for  example, last Saturday we learned that the Chinese consulate had given a dinner for government and business  representatives of British Columbia. The business community turned out in force, the NDP came, everyone who  was invited - but not one member of our provincial cabinet  turned up though all had been invited. Do you remember  the much-ballyhooed trip of Premier Bennett to China not  so long ago. The importance of good relations with the  emerging giant was much stressed.  Then there's the labour front: Labour Minister McClelland is going around the province soon to hear opinions about B.C.'s labour troubles. He might be better to  invite representatives of labour to Victoria to discuss the  problems. His junket around the province could be interpreted as an attempt to justify the harsh anti-labour actions the Socreds are still rumoured to be contemplating. It  is to be feared that confrontation is still the chosen Socred  path.  5 YEARS AGO  Coast News carries a front-page picture of the tugboat  Squamish Chief, beached at Davis Bay. The next tide  refloated the tug.  Opposition transportation critic, Don Lockstead, asks  for ferry inquiry into the safety and efficiency of the B.C.  Ferry Corporation because of government stonewalling.  Youngest falter at Wellwood's Clpwhom Camp, 23-year  old Rick Jacobson, is killed by 'widow-maker'. An on-the-  spot investigation concluded that there had been no  mistake made by Rick in the accident.

An editiorial pays tribute to Harpo Marx, the silent one  of the Marx brothers, who recently died.  Local communities are trying to decide what centennial  project or projects they will undertake.  25 YEARS AGO  The first helicopter to be seen locally landed at Porpoise  Bay recently and two Boy Scouts were able to direct it to a  gas station, getting a ride in the process. They were Dean   -  Robiliiard and Doug Wakefield.  Village clerk Robert Burns says that the areas around  Gibsons are being held up in their development by a lack  of water supply.  In a letter to the editor David Rees bemoans the billions  of dollars wasted on armaments.  30 YEARS AGO  Mr. and Mrs. George Frith were guests of the Blackball  employees recently in a ceremony to mark the end of Mr.  Frith's tenure as local traffic manager of Blackball Ferries.  Mr. and Mrs. Jack Mayne of Sechelt have returned home  after a six month holiday which saw them coyer 23,000  miles and 20 countries through the Panama Canal to  Europe.

On the one hand, the newly-arrived individual or family without wealth who sought to build a home in a  remote spot resorted to the expediency of the aboriginal split-cedar  posts, planks, and shakes, with their accompanying limitations of  design. Even prospective cities began with wooden buildings, their  lumber sawn rather than split. As time went by, while rural communities remained basically of wood, civic planners, trained in  British, European, or Eastern Seaboard schools, turned to the use of  stone, cement, and brick. Their buildings reflected both the derived  styles and the dictates of the materials used in their construction.  Grecian, Romanesque, Gothic, and Baroque sprang up cheek by  jowl. Churches, hotels, schools, banks, and government edifices  seemed to have been transported, piece by piece, from far way in  space and time. In some localities, wood and stone stood side by  side, awaiting the destiny that would befall the plots of earth on  which they stood. Vancouver. Albertype postcard, Courtesy Ross  Gibsons collection. L.R. Peterson.  Musings  John Burnside  "I suppose you're pleased  with Mulroney's choice of ambassador to the United Nations," said Jake. We were  playing a late afternoon game  of chess in the cabin and the  wind from across Georgia  Strait was blowing the October  rain in squalls against the window.  "Pleased and surprised," I  answered.  "What's behind it? I read in  Sunday's Province where  Charles Lynch reckons  Mulroney is clearing the decks  with non-partisan appointments  so he can get comfortably on  with Tory patronage appointments. What do you think of  that?  "Well, Jake, I know that  Lynch is the Canadian true-blue  Tory columnist and all that but  sometimes I think- these  newspaper fellows get sp  cynically smart that they mejift  themselves coming around the  other side. I prefer to take the  straightforward view that  Mulroney is genuinely interested  in world peace and the United  Nations and selected what he  felt was the best man available  to give Canada a moderate but  forceful presence there. That's  undoubtedly too simple an approach for Charles Lynch.  Maybe it's time he retired. He's  starting to . see Machiavellian  plots in his morning  cornflakes."  "You think it's a good appointment, then?"  "No doubt about it," I  replied. "I've been listening to  Stephen Lewis on the Peter  Gzowski show every Tuesday  morning for a long time.  You've heard the show. He  represents the NDP, Dalton  Camp is there for the Conver-  satives, and Eric Kierans is the  ; maverick Liberal. All three are  pretty impressive men, committed to their views, articulate in  expressing   them   but   not   a  Our man at the UN  prisoner of them either. I think  it's a good appointment, certainly. It does Mulroney  credit."  "I've heard it said that you  seem to be turning into  something of a Tory yourself  lately," said Jake. "Check!"  I turned my full attention to  the chess board for a moment.  Jake was a sly player who didn't  seem to be doing too much for a  while but was capable of springing for the jugular after having  lulled his opponent into a false  sense of security. The present  confrontation seemed more like  a foray than an all-out assault. I  moved my king out of danger  and went back to the conversation.  "No, I don't think there's  ,. much danger of my turning  jT^ryj.butrmust say I'ye alvyays  .felt: more comfortable with  Conservatives in Canada than I  have with Liberals. There's a  kind of queasy hypocrisy about  the Canadian Liberals. They are  right-wing when it suits them,  left-wing when they think it's  popular."  "Sounds like smart politics to  me" said Jake.  "It is, if the only yardstick is  holding power, but it certainly  hasn't done much for Canada  in the half century or so that the  Liberals have dominated the national scene. It also tends to  leave you with a cynical electorate. I like the straighforward-  ness of the Conservative-NDP  confrontation. There is a  possibility of principled debate,  and that seems to me what  democracy is all about."  "I agree that the Liberals in  this country try to be friend to  all, like a public lavatory," said  Jake, "but some people think  that the political climate in  British Columbia is as rabid as  it is because we don't have a  strong middle of the road  party."  "What's got into you, Jake.  Are you turning into a closet  Liberal?"  "I'm just asking questions,"  said Jake. "If there's a decent  answer let's hear it."  As he spoke he made a seemingly innocuous move with his  queen. She was just advanced  one square from the back rank  but a warning bell sounded  somewhere for me. Jake never  moved his queen unless he saw  an opportunity to win the game.  I studied the situation but could  detect no immediate danger.  "One of the things that I like  about the election of Mulroney  is that Canadians in British Columbia may realize the difference between a bona fide  democratic Conservative  government and the opportunistic bunch of antidemocratic jackals that preside  jn the name of government in  This provice."  "Intemperate language,"  murmured Jake, and moved a  knight towards the centre of the  board.  "Accurate description," I  retorted, "and who are you to  accuse me of intemperate  language? I was listening to  Elizabeth Gray interviewing  Lewis on the "As It Happens  Show" the day the appointment  was announced. She asked him  how he had heard. He said he  had had a couple of conversations with the prime minister, a  conversation with external affairs minister Joe Clarke, but  that he had been first approached by Premier Bill Davis of Ontario. Grey wanted to know  why the premier had been involved and Lewis said that  someone had to be the intermediary, that he knew Davis  well and was fond of him. Now  just think of that, Jake. Here's  a former Opposition NDP  leader in Ontario admitting that  he is fond of the Conservative  premier. Can you imagine that  happening in B.C.?"  "You reckon that politicians  should be buddy-buddy, then,"  said Jake, and moved a second  knight into the middle of the  board. The position was getting  complex and starting to worry  me some but the old fox had me  going in the conversation, too.  "The essence of democratic  government is civilized disagreement," I said. "It is not  necessary to hate and despise  your opponent to disagree with  him. I think that's something  that Brian Mulroney understands and something that Bill  Bennett and his cohorts cannot  afford to understand." -  "Why that?" demanded  Jake. m  "Because their appeal to the.  electorate is based not on reason  but on fear. They tell the people  of the province . that -terrible  things will befall if thesy donllt  vote Social Credit. Take away  the imaginary bogey man df  Socialism and the Socreds don't  have a reason why anybody  should   vote   for   them.   Bill  Vander Zalm is a perfect example. For the next five weeks he's  going to try to red scare his way  into the mayoralty chair in Vancouver. It's typical of right wing  behaviour in this province but it  is not intelligent conservatism, j  think Mulroney is an intelligent  conservative and, as you said  sometime ago, it is possible that  he could prove to be a great  prime minister." ;  "I did say that, didn't !,��'  said Jake. "You're a good student. Checkmate." ;  He was right again. I studied  the position briefly then  acknowledged the win.  "You got me going with your  questions, Jake. 1 don't know if  that qualifies as fair play," *I  complained. i  "Another game?" said Jake;.  "Let me lick my wounds for  a while, Jake," I said and  helped myself to another cup of  tea.  Maryanne's viewpoint  Memories of Thanksgiving  by Maryanne West  Thanksgiving, and my  thoughts go back to a harvest  festival in the old Gothic church  in the village of Eyam in the  English Pennines where I spent  my childhood.  We lived 12 miles from the  nearest Quaker meeting;  distances seemed more formidable in those days, but my  mother made sure Sundays were  properly observed and sent me  to church in the care of two  tiny, old, Dickensian ladies.    .  I'm glad she did. I learnt the  traditional hymns and sang with  enthusiasm as the organ  reverberated between the stone  pillars of the nave and soared  among the roof beams high  overhead. The lovely rhythms  and cadences of the prayers,  responses and collects were  stored away in memory to be  called Upon like familiar friends  whenever in later life I found  myself taking part in an  Anglican service.  Harvest festival was probably  my favourite celebration in the  church   calendar  because  the  church was decorated so  beautifully for the occasion.  Masses of yellow and bronze  chrysanthemums, red and purple Michaelmas daisies beside  the altar rail and everywhere  rainbow hued dahlias.  There would be sheaves of  what the English call corn but  which would be fat ears of  wheat, feathery oats or barley  with long whiskery arms stacked each side of the chancel steps  and in front of them enormous  green cabbages, bunches of  orange carrots, scrubbed and  shining, crimson beets, the biggest turnips and pale yellow  vegetable marrows too heavy  for me to lift. Potatoes too,  spilling brown and smooth from  new sacks, the last runner beans  and creamy parsnips from the  cottage gardens, the outlying  farms, and from the hall and  the big houses of the mill  owners.  Apples and pears, rosy,  green, yellow-streaked or russet  were arranged on the win-  dowsills, set deep in the thick  stone walls, with jars of jam,  bottled fruit, loaves of freshly  baked bread and baskets of  brown eggs.  Was it always sunny or do I  just remember the days the  sun's rays slanted through the  stained glass throwing patches  of colour on the gray stone  pillars and walls, moving imperceptibly to high-light the  garlands of red Virgina Creeper  leaves woven around the pulpit  or bunches of scarlet rosehips,  crimson haws, dark velvet  brown bullrushes gathered with  meadow-sweet and purple  loosestrife from the hedgerows  and streams and tucked into  corners, or the lepers' squint?  What is a lepers' squint? In the  middle ages when leprosy was  riot uncommon and those suffering from the disease were  shunned, many churches made  a slit in the outside wall, very  like the slits from which archers  defended ancient castles, only  these were so that the lepers  could hear and take part in the  service without coming into the  church and thus in contact with  the congregation.  We sang the hymns sung by  generations before us of seed  time and ploughing, "All is  safely gathered in, ere the winter  storms begin" of things important to our daily lives.

Coast News, October 8,1984  travellers get ��ver-f_Igi_t ctea:  :     Editor:  The Transportation Committee for the last two years has  '������ been working towards improv-  "���> ing the transportation system on  ", and off the Coast.  '     Regarding the ferries, a basic  ; understanding has been reached  with the B.C. Ferry Corporation. They desire an increase in  'traffic before more sailings will  * be added, and feel the spring  ; and fall times are the seasons to  ^encourage traffic. A 'think  vtank' session has been set up  ' near the end of October to come  * up with new ideas. In the mean-  ' time, for the first time in three  years the winter schedule will  ' have the same number of sail-  * ings as the previous winter  ' (seven). The exact times will be  .announced as soon as they are  , available.  The bad news is they will not  ( be .running a late sailing this  winter again. However, a deal  : has been made with the Sandman Inns (110 Howe Street and  .180 W. Georgia Street - Vancouver locations - phone  number 112-800-663-6900) to  allow people, that show a book  of passenger or vehicle tickets  from the Sunshine Coast plus a  driver's licence or other ID with  their address, to stay at the Inns  for $37 per night. The room has  two double beds and up to four  .people may stay in this room.  This is for the first night only  and subject to availability.  Reservations will be accepted  and there is free parking, pools  and full dining facilities  available. This offer is good ef- ���  ' fective October 1, 1984 through  Mo April 30, 1985. -  should be approximately the  same (except during price wars).  Vancouver dealers pay less shipping costs but have an Urban  Transit Tax. Walt's Automotive  in Gibsons ��� has responded  already by lowering his full service price to 50.6 cents per litre.  The stairway to the  Horseshoe Bay Flag Stop is still  proceeding.   The   engineering  A hockey night watching the  Canucks is also being arranged  now.  Regarding the price of gas,  the higher price of gas on the  Sunshine Coast has always been  a complaint of tourists and  residents alike. The Sunshine  Coast Regional Board wrote to  oil companies about the higher  price and found the price of gas  drawings are being completed  and there is a slim chance that  the stairs may be completed in  time for the ski season at  Whistler.

Personal tragedies,  emotional strain, loss of human  dignity, family breakdown and  suicide are continuing to take  their toll. As members of this  society, and of this community,  we have a responsibility to  understand what is happening  to those around us and to  ourselves; to find relief for the  suffering and affect changes in  the causes.  In 1983 the Episcopal Commission for Social Affairs,  Canadian Conference of  Catholic Bishops released their  analysis "Ethical Reflections on  the Economic Crisis". Since  that time, the Bishops' Report,  as it has become known, has  received either the highest acclaim or the most vitriolic condemnation. The Pope, on his  recent Canadian tour, referred  to the report as a most important document.  What does the Bishops'  Report have to say? What questions does it raise? What solutions does it suggest?

The purposes of By-law 264 are:  1. To divide Electoral Areas B, C, D, E and F into  separate zones;  2. To regulate the use of land, buildings and structures, including the surface of water, within  each zone; and  3. To regulate the size, shape and siting of  buildings and structures within each zone.  NOTE: By-law 264 is resubmitted tp Public Hearing due to a number of changes made to  the by-law as a result of submissions  received at the last Public Hearing and  through the provincial referral system. The  most important of a number of changes  made are the number of dwellings permitted in the residential zones and a reduction  in the area proposed for water zoning.  The Public Hearing will be held at 7:00 p.m. on  Monday, October 22, 1984 at the Roberts Creek  Community Hall located near the corner of Roberts  Creek Road and Highway 101. All persons who  deem their interest in property to be affected by the  proposed by-law shall be afforded an opportunity  to be heard on matters contained therein.  The above is a synopsis of By-law 264 and is not  deemed to be an interpretation of the by-law. The  by-law may be inspected at the Regional District  office, located in the Royal Terraces building at the  foot of Wharf Street, Sechelt, B.C., during office  hours - namely Monday to Wednesday from 8:00  a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and Thursday and Friday from 8:00  a.m. to 6:00 p.m.  Mr. L Jardine  Secretary-Treasurer  Sunshine Coast Regional District  P.O.

It has  taken a lot of guts and hard  work to create a new marina we  can all be proud of.  Last week-end, the Gypsy  Restaurant had one of the best  week-ends of the summer.  Other Gibsons restaurants also  did well, as a result of the large  number of visitors that attended  the opening. We believe this is  just the beginning. The marina  is sure to attract hundreds of  boaters every week-end,  especially in the summer.  This is the shot in the arm  that Gibsons has needed for  years. The boating and tourist  trade is sure to grow tremendously. Permanent boats, many  of them from Vancouver, will  bring sales of groceries, gas and  other supplies to Gibsons. Local  residents will also benefit from  the moorage, a relief from the  over-crowded conditions at the  government wharf.  I know I am not alone in feeling optimism in the future of  Gibsons, because of the new  marina. We wish Art McGinnis  every success in this daring new  venture, to the benefit of us all.  Roland Fleischer,  Gypsy Restaurant  Art McGinnis says  "Thank You"  Editor:  I am writing to thank those  who attended our opening and  to invite those who were unable  to come to visit in the future.  It has been our endeavour to  make the marina and the park  areas a showpiece for the community's enjoyment and judging from the response, we have  achieved this goal.  I would also at this time like  to thank those who live nearby  for their patience with the construction noises and activity - it  will not be long before construction is complete and we will all  be able to quietly enjoy.  I would like to take this opportunity to extend an invitation to local community clubs to  use the park and parking  facilities for public related functions which might be fitting, insofar as they do not conflict  with marina operation and ,  patrons.  On the recent' 'Penner'' letter  to you, I can comment that it is  easier to be a critic than a  creator.

Thanks to energetic  volunteers and generous donation of space by. St. Hilda's,  costs are kept low. But toys,  books, dolls, dress-up  costumes, and art supplies are  needed. Donations are welcomed at the Community Services  office above The Dock in  Sechelt.  For more information or to  volunteer, call Kay, 885-3523.

Even though you had one last year another  one should be taken this year. Each year the virus is slightly different from  the previous years virus and a different serum must be given.  The group of people that are most likely to develop complications due to the  flu should have this shot. The group includes diabetics, the elderly and people with respiratory problems.  People who come in contact with a lot of other people are a group that have  a greater chance of contracting the virus arid therefore should have a flu shot  as well.

COMMUNITY GESTURE  Long ago, there was an  organization called the Area  "A" Property Owners Association which is now no longer active. It was decided by their  directors to turn the ac-  cumulated money over to the  Pender Harbour and District  Wildlife Club (via the Lions  Club) for use in the Salmonid  Enhancement program which  the club operates up in Lions  Park. At the last Lions meeting  ^a cheque for $837.11 was  presented to those involved by  Irene Boyd and Lloyd Davis.  What a good thing to do for the  community!  THANKSGIVING  Thanksgiving weekend ' is  over. Please take note that the  ferries have a new schedule and  don't get fooled. I hope  everyone had a moment to  reflect on all the things there are  to be thankful for: especially  ourselves and those we love. ,,-,  by Ann Cook, 883,9167  COUGAR COUNTRY  Yes, we live in cougar country. I'm always hearing of  cougar sightings but with the  foolish way my mind works I  think if I don't think about  them, pretend they are not  there, they will go away. Not  so! Awhile back I could name  the locals that had seen them���I  say them because there is a pair  or mother and cub travelling  together. Now I can name the  few people who have not seen a  cougar on Egmont Road- at  North Lake, Waugh Lake,  Skookumchuck trail, or right  downtown Egmont.  I had an early morning phone  call to let me know they have  been seen near "the logs" on  Waugh Lake. The last few  sightings are the same: the  cougars are in no hurry and do  not appear afraid of vehicles or  people. One of the pair was  casually rubbing its face with a  paw in no hurry to move on.  The neighbours have a nice  plump deer that can be seen  nearly every morning or evening  munching grass in their yard.  Why haven't one of these wild,  hungry cougars munched the  deer? Maybe, like people, if a  cougar doesn't run and get exercise and an appetite it doesn't  need a big deer for dinner but is  happy with one of those eight  million fat racoons that inhabit  the area.  Maybe it's the year of the  cougar. Last year it was racoons, they are just a nuisance.  ' Before that it was skunks���they  are a damn nuisance. The  beaver? No problem, I just get  curious about how many there  really are in Waugh Lake. Now  it's cougars. I wish one would  scare the hell out of me so I  could be a bit more wary of  them. Better to be safe than  sorry. Let's keep our children  and pets close to us until the  cougars move on or some other  animal (like man) cuts down  their population.

Pulp and Paper Reports: Changes to meet challenges  At a crossroads  ^  \  \  \.  Like many resource industries, the  * forest products industry is being  rocked by changes and challenges - challenges which hold promise for the future.  For the more than 300,000 men and  women, their families and friends in  some 300 forest industry communities  from coast to coast changes have come  quickly.  Every phase of the industry is being  re-examined with an eye to cutting costs,  to improving productivity, to achieving  higher quality. Today, forest workers and  all Canadians recognize the global nature  of pulp and paper competition. They  acknowledge the competitive drive of  citizens of other countries. To meet this  competition Canadian producers are  focusing on technological improvements  and forest renewal. They are increasing  quality and improving productivity and  responding to new growth opportunities.  In response to the new competitive  environment, forest industry employees  are seeking to establish a new measure  of excellence. Technological improvements alone will not do the job. Excellence comes from people who put the  process together and make it work.

Give thanks for good health,  good neighbours and friends  and remember we aren't poor  we just don't have much  money.

The many  friends of Agnes McPhalen wOl  be sorry to hear Of her recent  passing. Hugh and Agnes have1  been summer residents Of  Redrooffs for some 30 years.  Agnes was involved in many  local community activities and  was for several years an active  member of the Area B  Ratepayers Association. She  was a life member of her  hospital auxiliary and of the  IODE. Her spirit and courage  while battling with illness was  an inspiration to all who knew  her.  Had Agnes survived for a few  more weeks she and husband  Hugh would have been  celebrating their sixty-fourth  wedding anniversary. One of  their three daughters is Mrs. Pat  Mitton of Sechelt and one son  resides in Ottawa.  Our thoughts go out to the  family at this time of grief. A  memorial service was held last  Friday in St. Andrew's Wesley  church in Vancouver.  "Get well soon" messages go  out to two nice ladies who have  been under the weather. May  Alice Halford and Rhona Clark  be fine again soon.

The garden as mandala. The  garden as a language which  'assists man's comprehension of  his origins'.  Glenn has translated this  language for us, categorized  and channelled universal myths  of birth, life and death as they  are symbolized in gardens  around the world. And the leap  to seeing these same symbols in  Channel  Ten  Wednesday, October 10  Thursday, October 11  7:00 p.m.  Coast Ten television, a  volunteer network, presents our  third show in this new series titled "Coast Currents".

Glenn calls it 'subliminal  nostalgia'���the subconscious  desire to retrieve Paradise  through the creation of gardens.  In his text, he quotes Francis  Bacon: 'Nature cannot be commanded except by being  obeyed.'* By interweaving text  and visual imagery, further  embellished by an evening slide-  talk show, Glenn reveals how  people all over the world and  through centuries have used  garden symbols, ritual, and  myth to retrieve Paradise.  There are aspects of this work  that would not please the ardent  photo technofreak���primarily a  soft, almost out of focus, irritating in the slides, but giving  the Cibachromes a dreamy, intangible quality, appropriately  just a little out of reach. The  colours are rich and sumptuous���subtly varying shades of  green, the odd highlight of red  or pink or yellow. No reliance  on cheap pizazz. No orange  sunsets here.

At the present time many  people do launch boats at the  mouth of the creek as well as at  the picnic site. Director Jon  McRae said the Flume Road site  was unsuitable for a permanent  ramp because of lack of wave  protection and the very rocky  foreshore.  Director Brett McGillivray  pointed out that the Roberts  Creek   Settlement   Plan,   so  painstakingly worked out, had  decided on the Flume road site  for  several reasons:  there  is  Navy League start  Registration for the Navy  League is currently being held,  and all boys and girls from nine  to 13 years are invited to join  this active group.

The group meets every  Wednesday from 6:30 until 8:30  p.m. in Sechelt elementary  school, and new members are  welcome to come this or any  Wednesday and should be accompanied by a parent or guardian, whose signature is  necessary for registration.

A number of changes will result from this conversion.  Change #1 ��� Push button phones.  If you have a push button (Touch Calling) phone and have not yet arranged  with B.C. Tel for a Touch Calling line, this is a very significant change for you.  You see, Touch Calling service requires special programming in an  electronic exchange. This programming has already been arranged for those  customers who have obtained Touch Calling service from B.C.Tel and who  are now paying monthly charges for their Touch Calling facilities. After the  electronic conversion, calls cannot be made from a Touch Calling telephone  without this special programming in our central office equipment.  To avoid any loss of service and for further details of Touch Calling rates,  please call our Customer Service Office immediately at 112-986-1951 (toll free)  for residential telephones or 112-687-6441 (toll free) for business telephones,  between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Monday to Friday.  Change #2 ��� Seven digit dialling.  Also effective October 20, customers must dial all seven digits of the  telephone number they wish to reach in order to complete a local call.  The new electronic equipment installed will no longer permit completion of  local calls when only five or six digits are dialled.  Change #3 ��� Party line customers.  Also effective October 20, party line customers need to dial only seven digits  when calling another party on their line. The dialling code "18" should no  longer be used.  Changes for the better.  Installation of this highly sophisticated switching equipment is a significant  step towards bringing you more efficient service.  It is planned that by year-end, half the phones in B.C. will be electronically  controlled, and by 1985, three-quarters of all phones will be converted.  This new electronic system serving Gibsons will employ digital technology  which is the state-of-the-art in electronic switching systems.  As you would expect, a conversion such as this is a massive undertaking.  But the benefits, especially over the long run, are equally substantial.  Cost control, and its ultimate effect on the rates you will pay for your phone  service in the future, is the major benefit to telephone customers. For many  reasons (among them maintenance efficiency, space-saving and operational  reliability), electronic switching technology helps us to meet customer needs  efficiently and, at the same time, to hold the line as best we can against the  costs of providing service to you.  & B.C.

Gibsons trounced the  Old BoyS 53-3. ���Jay Pomfret photo  Gibsons  awesome  UBC Old Boys were five men  short of a full 15-man squad  causing a rather embarrassing  53-3 loss to an awesome Gibsons side in rugby action last  weekend. The Gibsons side offered help by giving the Old  Boys five extra players from  their well stocked spare list.  The game did give the home  town hogs a good.practice session, allowing plenty of opportunities to successfully complete  their option plays.  Steve Almond came out on  top in the scoring with an amazing three try hat trick and the  list goes on. Freeman Smith  showed excellent positional play  out on the wing, scoring twice.  Others scoring single tries  ;-were eighth man Weepy Pearce,  outside centre Quinn, stand-off  Dave Rainer, winger Brian  Lymer, winger Raymond Dube  and second half hooker replacement Brian Scarr.  Ken Miles converted three  tries,* and Dave Rainer also converted a single try.  Competition will resume next  weekend when Gibsons returns  to Stanley Park's Brockton  Oval for the first meeting with a  strong sided Vancouver Rowing  Club at 11:30 a.m.  The club would like to thank  all the supporters who came out  to watch last weekend's game.

Sechelt Seniors  by Peggy Conaor, 8BS&347  ISLANDS AND  THEIR BIRDS  The first meeting for the fall  season of the Sechelt Protective  Marsh Society will have for  their speaker Dr. James Smith,  associate professor of zoology  at UBC. His topic is Islands and  Their Birds.  The meeting will be held at  the Sunshine Coast Arts Centre  on Friday, October 12, starting  at 7:30 p.m. Everybody is  welcome.  et  A night to remember  9��  by Robert Foxall  I have a huge problem this  week in trying to report our  "Night to Remember" held in  our, hall the evening of  September 29. How does one  pick out one star from a galaxy  of stars. I'm not going to try.  I'm just going to report the program as it occurred and let those  of you who did not attend find  out from those of your friends  who did what an outstanding  show we enjoyed.  And, before I go any further,  I must apologize for the fact  that I cannot read my own notes  properly and may inadvertently  mis-spell or even miss a name.  The trouble was the hall was full  and I was crowded for space.  (Oh, how we need that new  hall.) I depended too much on  my memory, which is showing  signs of wear and tear and my  handwriting is worn threadbare.  We enjoyed many, many  songs that would be considered  passe by our juniors, but which  are dear to the hearts of seniors.  I see titles such as "It's a Fine,  Fine Life", "As Long as He  (She) Needs Me", "Dancing  with Tears in My Eyes",-  "Yours is My Heart", and  "Cheri-Bibi".  We had violin solos including  Schubert's Serenade and  r another number which I cannot  read in my disturbed notes.  Walter James sang two solos in  his usual inimitable sytle. Joan  Bist gave us "Smoke Get In  Your Eyes".  Mary Redman rendered two  piano solos including Brahms  "Hungarian Dance". Katharine  Kelly gave us two solos in Gaelic  which,    of   course,    was  something very different. Signe  Murgatroyd sang "Don't" Cry  for Me Argentina" and  "Carousel".  Alice Horsman gave her  usual excellence with "Aye  Maria" and a Bach number.  And I must mention Virgil, with  "Little   Bo-Peep   Lost ' Her  Sheep''. M-  The finale must be mentioned. This was an Italian street  song from Naughty Marietta by  practically everyone' in the  building. It was a great night  and helped us get a mite nearer  our objective which should include a cubby hole for the  reporter.  The show was so good that  there is a good chance it will be  ' repeated in the not too distant  future. I'll be there to catch up  on what I missed the first time  around. V  ADULT DAY  CARE BAZAAR  The combined efforts of the  Sechelt and Gibsons group who  attend the Adult Day Care Centres will go into a bazaar at the  United Church in Gibsons on  Saturday, October 13, 2 to 4  p.m.  There will be a draw for door  prizes. For sale there will be  wooden toys, knitted goods,  bake table and many other hand  made items. Tea will be served.  Your support will be appreciated.  DINNER FOR DOROTHY  The Chamber of Commerce  for Sechelt and District will hold  their dinner and dance to  honour their Good Citizen of  the Year at the Canadian  Legion Hall in Sechelt on Saturday, October 27.  This year they honour  Dorothy Goeson and tickets are  available at the Sechelt  Chamber of Commerce office,  phone 885-3100.  TRUE OKTOBERFEST  I have heard several reports  of the fantastic Octoberfest  hosted by Ann and Fred Metz-  ner at Moorbad. There have  been raves about ' the food  -traditional sauerkraut, pork  chops, breads, plum cake, etc.;  raves about the cordiality of the  host and, hotess; and raves  about the music played by a  couple of fellows in lederhose  outfits on the drums and accordion from Vancouver, all giving  a true feeling of "gemuet-  lichkeit" (good feeling).  Mary Peters of Sechelt won  first prize in the dirndl contest  Coast News,  with runner-ups from Gibsons,  Halfmoon   Bay,   Sechelt  and  Maple Ridge.  The event was held on Saturday, September 29, at. Moorbad  in Sechelt.  Labour Day weekend was  open house at Moorbad giving  the local people a chance to see  the changes that have been  made to Rockwood Lodge and  October 8,1984 13.  giving an indication of the sort  of treatment they are providing.  More on this next week.  FLEA MARKET  There will be a flea market at  the Sechelt Indian Band Community Hall on Sunday, October 14 starting at 10 a.m. It is  interesting to attend and see  what is for sale; doughnuts and  coffee available.  ��3 BCFERRKES  WINTER 1984/85  Schedule  Effective Tuesday, October 9,1984 to  Wednesday, June 19,1985 inclusive:  VANCOUVER-SECHELT PENINSULA  HORSESHOE BAY-LANGDALE  Lv.

Some signs indicate a  specified speed limit to be  observed by motorists; other  school zone signs give no indication of a speed limit and are  meant as a warning that a  school zone is being entered by  a motorist and that the usual  speed limit of those areas is to  be strictly observed.  Two break and entries were  reported to police last week. On  the September 28, the Village  Store in lower Gibsons was  entered and a quantity of  money and merchandise was  taken. A window was smashed  in order to gain entry.  A report that Ken's Lucky  Dollar store had been broken  into was received on September  29. Vandals smashed a window  and once inside the store caused  a great deal of damage to the  premises.  SECHELT RCMP  Police have been noticing an  increase in prowler complaints.  Most of the time, by the time  police arrive, the prowlers have  left.  Three reports were received  this week, on September 27 and  28 and on October 2, from  Browning Road, Garden Bay  Road and the Sechelt Indian  Reserve.  Three break and entries were  reported. On the September 30,  a residence on the Sechelt  Reserve was entered and some  clothing was stolen.  On October 2, the Beach  Buoy Drive-In was broken into,  for the third time in two weeks.  Again, food was taken.  A residence located on  Panorama Place in Garden Bay  was broken into on October 5.  No further details on the break-  in were available at press time.  Vandalism was reported on  September 29 from the European Motors station. A Datsun  pick-up and a red Honda parked near the garage were damaged.  On September 30, the Timber  Trail Riding Club's club house,  located near Field Road was  destroyed by vandals. The  premises was torn apart, beer  bottles were smashed, all the  windows, window and door  frames were destroyed and a  first aid kit was taken apart. Extensive damage to a sand  covered riding area was caused  by vehicles being driven qver the  field. A beautiful deck built for  spectators of the horse shows  was also destroyed. The vandals, who broke into the club's  area by using their vehicles,  caused an estimated $3,000 in  damages.  Also on September 30, the  phone booth located at the  Roberts Creek Provincial Park  was completely demolished by  vandals.  Reports of willful damage to  mail boxes were received on  September 30 and on the October 1 from the Madeira Park  area and as far as Irvines Landing. Boxes were knocked over  and some were dragged across  the road.  On October 4, a car parked in  the Sunshine GM compound  was vandalised and parts were  stolen,  A 5 HP motor was stolen  from a Gunboat Bay residence  and a $50 pump was stolen  from a boat moored in Egmont  on September 29.  Charges of possession of a  narcotic have been laid against  Christopher Angus of Hotham  Sound in Jervis Inlet following  the confiscation of nine growing  marijuana plants from Angus  by police. Angus is also facing  cultivation charges.  Charges of assault have been  laid against an adult male of no  fixed address following a police  investigation into the beating of  a Sechelt adult female. TTie  woman was taken to hospital  for treatment of a fractured jaw  and will need plastic surgery.  The attack took place on October 1 at 11:00 p.m. in a  residence on Cowrie Street.  Two of the eight flags stolen  from the Bella Beach Motel-  have been recovered at a roadside in Selma Park. Thieves  discarded the flags from Alberta and Saskatchewan.  Transition House  revitalized  New staff and innovative  programs are revitalizing the  Sunshine Coast Transition  House���a safe house for battered women, operated by Sunshine Coast Community Services Society since 1981.  The three-member staff was  revamped completely this  month. The new co-ordinator,  Penny Fuller, administers the  program, trains volunteers, and  directs public education activities about violence against  women and children. Fuller  comes from Fort St. John  where she co-ordinated a  Women's Centre and a Sexual  Assault Centre.  Elia McNutt,  Bay resident,  Andersen from Vancouver have  been hired as counsellors.  McNutt works mainly with  children who come to the house  with their mothers. Andersen  concentrates on helping the  women sort out their lives.  To further assist sexual abuse  victims, Fuller is implementing  the WAVAW {Women Against  Violence Against Women)  Crisis Line. This 24-hour phone  line, 885-2944, located at the  a  Halfmoon  and    Dilys  Transition   House   will   be  covered by trained volunteers.  "WAVAW is not opening an  office here," stresses Fuller.  "We're only making full use of  our existing phone." She says  WAVAW Crisis Lines have  operated throughout North  America for over 15 years.  "Each one has a different emphasis," says Fuller. "Many are  connected to transition houses.  Others deal only with sexual  assault. But they share a commitment to work against all  forms of violence against  women."  Fuller expects Crisis Line  training to start in mid-October  and urges interested applicants  to contact her soon at the  number above.  Transition House workers are  also starting a public education  program out in the community  to help local women prevent  sexual assault. Wife battering  and sexual abuse are two of the  topics that will be stressed. "We  try to support women who have  been victims," says Fuller. "But  we also aim to help prevent this  kind of violence."  (  32.  B.C. &. Yukon  Western Budget Motel, 2679 Hwy  97, North. Best buy in Kelowna.

Because this commission usually meets only once every two  months, the agenda was very  full, beginning with the Tennis  Club, and going on to various  other questions, including the  rugby club field house, soccer  goal posts, the new bubble at  Brothers Park, chemicals for  the pool, a new recreation consultant and No-Name Park.  Eric Cardinall from the Tennis Club was on hand to re-cap  last year's highly successful project and to request funds for the  next, which is to up-grade some  of the courts within School  District #46. There is interest in  providing a practise court; it  was suggested to do so at  Dougal Park, but it was pointed  out by Mayor Laurent Labonte  that the large number of  neighbouring houses would  make such an idea impractable,  due to the irritating noise.  It was agreed that Brothers  Park would be an excellent substitution. "Eventually," said  Mr. Cardinall, "it is hoped that  thei- will be four adjacent  courts at Brothers Park to  accommodate Inter-club matches."  The commission was most  grateful to Mr. Cardinall and  the Tennis Club for their  valuable contribution to the  maintenance of the existing  courts, including the surfacing  of several. It was agreed to include the club's request in the  1985 budget.  The subject of washrooms at  Brothers Park led to some  spirited discussion involving the  questions of the rugby field  house and the new bubble to be  erected on the site. The commission is debating whether to  share 50/50 with the town of  Gibsons in the costs of erecting  the washrooms at the bubble,  conditional on the agreement  that the sewer line will go as far  as the proposed new rugby club  field house, when it is built in  two  to  three  years.  Soccer goal posts have been  purchased. Even though locally  made, they are a costly item and  Mr. Bill Sluis from area E expressed some concern that they  be well cared for.  Our Town  ASSAULT: PART 17  LETTERS FROM READERS  "I was the oldest of six kids.  My parents were very strong  Jehovah's Witnesses and I was  knocking on doors when I was  six years old. My Dad used to  get drunk and come home and  beat up my Mom and make her  go to bed with him, but after I  started to develop, he used to  get in my bed instead. I guess  Mom knew but she never said  anything; I think she was glad it  wasn't her.  "She left Dad when I was 12,  and he made me his new wife. I  had to do all the cooking and  cleaning as well as be his sex  partner. I've been raising kids  my whole life. I knew if I said  anything Dad would just beat  me up more and I was scared  he'd start going to bed with my  little sisters .so I put1 up with it.  "I didn't do good in school, I  quit in grade 9, but I was real  popular with boys; I guess.they  thought I was an easy lay. I got  pregnant at 15 and I never knew  if that baby was my Dad's or  my boyfriend's. I kept her for a  year but it was really hard and  finally I gave her up for adoption. I hope she got a better  home.  "I got married early to a logger, nice man, hard working  and good to me and our four  kids but he drank a lot. I am  real pretty and I have a good  figure for my age, people say I  look real young, like my teenage  GRAND OPENING  GREAT MUSIC!  SUPER PEOPLE!  DELIGHTFUL DRINKS!

Well, I guess I am  real young because I still feel  like a scared little kid a lot of the  time.  "I work in bars and I like to  drink and have a good time. I  met a man younger than me and  I was really attracted to him. I  split with my husband and we  finally got a divorce and I married my boyfriend.  "He hates it when I get drunk  and when I smashed up my car,  he started beating me up just  like my Dad. People started  getting really embarrassed to  come and see us because they  thought they might see me with  a black eye. But he finally took  a course on People Are Not For  Hitting and he's been better*to  me. We had to borrow money  for that from his Gramma and  so we're more in debt than ever.  He is a spacer in the forest iri*  dustry but out of work right  now. At least he doesn't rape  my girls.  "After I left home, I never  knew if my Dad started raping  my sisters, but I do know that  my next sister had a nervous  breakdown and she never did  tell me nothing about how Dad  treated her. And my littlest  sister got real fat, 230 pounds  on a 5'1" body. I hate my Dad  and I never go see him. My  Mom remarried a pretty nice  guy and I guess she is doing  okay.  "I don't know what can be  done because when you are in  that kind of situation you don't  understand what's happening  and you don't know anybody  you can tell who will believe you  or can help you without your  Mom or you or your sisters getting hurt worse.  "And it's not just raping little  girls, its drinking and beating  women up. I guess I'm doing  that part all over again with my  family and it would have gotten  worse if it hadn't been for that  course my husband took."  Local woman.  If you wish to write to us,  send your letters to: Our Town,  Box 460, Gibsons, B.C. We appreciate your letters very much.  Sexual abuse is a very serious  problem and your letters will  help to make our readers  understand the extent of the  damage inflicted on its victims.  If you want to share your  thoughts, your experiences or  opinions on the subject of our  columns or on the letters received, we urge you to do so. We  need your contributions and we  thank those who have already  written to us.  Mr. Rob Liddicoat presented  some costs of purchasing new  chemical feeders for the town of  Gibsons pool. It was requested  by chairman Jim Gurney that  he further investigate the costs  of gas chlorine as opposed to liquid chlorine for use at the  pool. Even though the initial  outlay may be more, the savings  are a great deal higher per annum, said the chairman, and it  is hoped that the most  ecohomical and safest method  of chlorination at the pool will  be found.  A recreation consultant, Mr.  Mike Powley, has been engaged  by the Commission to make a  study of the Gibsons swimming  pool operation. It is hoped that  a report will be available at the  end of October.  A contest is being held at  Cedar Grove elementary school  to find a good name for the  'No-Name' Park situated between Woodcreek Park and the  cemetery. It was agreed by the  Commission that the prizes  should include three year-long  family passes to the pool.  Another meeting of the commission will be held in  November, principally to wind  up 1984 business and to complete the budget for 1985.
