 MTnrr  LEGISLATOR LiBRARY"  Parllamonf Buildings  VICTORIA, B,<��  V8V 1X4  esW  s narrow victory  Incumbent MP Ray Skelly of the  HDP held his seat in last week's  election in Comox-Powell River  isut saw his margin of victory sliced  thin by a hard-charging campaign  on behalf of Mike'Hicks of the  Progressive Conservatives.  i Fn the I9S& election Skelly won  by a margin of more than 8,000  'Votes in holding what was deejned  a safe NDP seat. Last week the MP  polled just 841 votes more than the  Conservative candidate.  With 763 per cent of voters  casting their ..ballots, Skelly got  26,963 votes to 26,122 in favour of  Mike Hicks. In percentages, Skelly  got 45.7 per cent of the votes and  Hicks got 43.2 per cent.  The Liberal candidate, Wayne  Nesbit had 5,712 votes and Wayne  White of the Green Party led the  other four candidates with just 491  votes.  The following are the voting  figures for the two major parties  broken down for the local voting  areas of the Sunshine Coast.  For Egmont, Pender Harbour,  Madeira Park and Beaver Island  the NDP had 440 supporters, the  Conservatives 458: for Silver  Sands, Halfmoon Bay, Sargeant  Bay and Wakefield the figures are  336 for the NDP and 425 for the  Progressive Conservatives; for  West Sechelt and Sechelt the NDP  got 384 votes to 457 for the Con  servatives; for Porpoise Bay,  Tillicome, and Selma Park it was  456 for the NDP, 380 for the PC's;  for Davis Bay, Wilson Creek and  west and central Roberts Creek the  NDP had 730 votes to 580 for the  PC's; for east Roberts Creek and  Gibsons Heights it was 872 for the  NDP to 555 for the PC's; for Gibsons Village, Granthams, Hopkins,  Soames, Port Mellon and Gambier  Island the NDP vote totalled 751 to  553 for the PC's.  Throughout the southern Sunshine Coast a total of 3,969 voters  supported Ray Skelly and Mike  Hicks was the preferred choice ol  3,408.  Contest nationwide  Local wins at PNE  by Fran Burnside  The beauty and delights of Cliff Gilker Park will be viewed by pepple around the world, courtesy of  rtThe Beachcombers" who were shooting a segment there last week.

Although there were more entries than ever before this year, and  this was the first year that the competition was nation-wide, with en-  tries coming from as far away as  by Dana Sheehan  Rob Buchan, town planner for  Gibsons, was. firm throughout the  entireMneeting. "*Nt doBi't-waiit-iti  We^hould feview^ *whifS^Jst^aM  with the minister of highways. The  chairman of the regional board and  the mayor of Gibsons signed an  agreement three years ago. To  what extent that is binding, I don't  know, but I raise the question now.  I am raising the question of confrontation!"  The highways department had  drawn up two alternative feeder  routes between North Road and  Pratt Road, and the meeting  September 7, with members of the  SCRD and the town of Gibsons  was called to make a decision on  these new routes.  Three years ago, a major street  network plan was drawn up. A  Sunnycrest-Mahan Road was  designated.  'The future alignment decided  upon by highways at that time  touched upon the Twlight Theatre  property, to Davis Road and  through a vacant lot and a residential lot. Gibsons objected at the  time because of the disruption this  route would cause, but highways  insisted it was just a matter of expropriation.  Two years later, the proposed  Park Place Development was instrumental in. altering the Sunnycrest intersection. Highways  agreed to1- put Mhe highway rightX.  "throiigrl the TSvmgru ffiea^ lot  . and two residential lots. The town  of Gibsons objected to this disruptive change and the department of  highways has come up with two  alternative routes to the  Sunnycrest-Mahan plan.  The alternatives to the Sunnycrest Mahan route ' involve a  Park Road to Gilmour connection.  North of Reed Road in area E this  involves numerous residential lots.  The other alternative would run  southwest through the high school  playing field and through Brothers  Park.  Planner Buchan feels neither option is any good. "Gibsons sees no  need for this N/S connection. In  such a disruptive manner and at  such a cost, I find it very difficult  to support.  Chairman of the regional board,  Jim Gurney, had this to say: "If  highways is using this as a means of  stalling the Gibsons bypass, I think  we should pick a route and go with  it. It may never even be built.  Perhaps the Gilmour Road to Park  Mahan route could be modified so  it does not interfere with the park.  The other alternative interferes  with too much private property."  Gibsons Alderman John Burnside stated that he felt both were  s<?rne^^^  the inteint of highways may be to  lead us back to the original  Sunnycrest-Mahan choice.     ,?M  "It is important that we come to  an agreement as local bodies," said  Burnside. "The regional board and  the town have to agree about this  access, take it to highways and then  push for the bypass. The bypass is  the main transportation issue at  present and. we should not lose  sight of it.".  The decision was unanimous.  Both Gibsons and the regional  board will plan a joint letter to  highways opposing any north-  south feeder route additional to a  Payne-Pratt Road route on the  west side of Gibsons.  Muriel Sully's beautiful crocheted items, including this lovely  afghan, won three awards in the nationwide "Creative Crafts"  competition at the PNE. -i��� Bumsidephoto  New York, Chicago and Toronto,  Sechelt's own Muriel came home  with a first prize ribbon and two  seconds.  This is the first time Muriel ever  entered the PNE compeition. "I  was conned into it," she laughs. A  lady from Richmond for whom  Muriel had made a bady dress asked the PNE to send Muriel the  necessary forms, and when they  didn't arrive she insisted that  Muriel phone the PNE to get them.  "I never would have entred.if I had  known the compeition was nationwide," she says.  In such stiff competition, Muriel  received first prize for a beautiful  white crocheted shawl, second for  a crocheted centrepiece, and second for a crocheted afghan with  cross stitch design. Only the afghan  is still withoMurieljJhe other piece* '  have already been sold.  Muriel was only 10 years old  when her mother taught her how to  knit. Three years later she had  rheumatic fever, and during her  three month convalescence she  leared how to crochet. These days  she does several hours of handiwork every day to keep the stiffness of arthritis from her fingers,  and always has a variety of projects  on the go at once. She particularly  likes making baby thing and working with very fine wood and  threads.  For anyone wishing to see some  of Muriel's fine handiwork, several  of her items are available at B&B  Crafts in Trail Bay Centre, Sechelt.  Sechelt plans  revitalization  Sechelt  former  salutes  mayor  Marina complete  by month's end  The Gibsons marina should be  '"substantially completed" by the  end of September, marina  developer Art McGinnis told the  Coast News last week.  ;3n addition to the 381 berths  available for boat moorage, paving  of the parking area has now been  completed, and landscaping and  the. laying of paving stones in the  park area is proceeding. The administration office is now open  daily, and will eventually be staffed  dujing all daylight hours,  v Although there are the usual day  tiHiay problems to be dealt with,  Low cost housing  heed questioned  "construction is going very well,"  McGinnis said. By the end of  September he expects there will only be 'tune-up* work to be done,  along with continued landscaping.  Considering the approach of the  off-season, McGinnis feels the rate  at which boaters have been contracting space in the new marina  has been quite good. "It would  have been preferable and better to  begin (leasing space) in May," he  said, "but in general, we've had a  tremendously positive response  from the boating public."  by Dana Sheehan  v^'We're being pushed by the  p*e0ple who want to build. There  ,are columns and columns of apartments for rent at $300 a month,  clean and still no takers."  . With this statement, Gibsons  alderman Bill Edney made his  point clear. There is no shortage of  low income housing in Gibsons.  ,Rob Buchan, town planner,  reported that at the last meeting  with CMHC and Rod Prewitt of  Durwest   Construction  regarding  the proposed low income housing  project for Gibsons. Mr. Nickland  of CMHC requested answers to a  number of questions regarding the  feasibility and necessity of such a  project.  At the council meeting  September 4, Mr. Buchan requested direction from council as  to whether to take the necessary  time to research the questions  regarding the low income housing  project, or to put the matter aside.  Council motioned that the matter  should be put aside for the time being.  Sechelt council has decided both  to opt out of the regional planning  function and to proceed with investigating possibilities for a  downtown revitalization program.  In a move similar to one made  recently by the town of Gibsons,  Sechelt council voted to inform the  regional board that it wishes to opt  out of a program of 'municipal  participation in electoral area planning with regional districts', effective January 1, 1985, thereby giving  the required three-month notice.  "We are gaining nothing by continuing to contribute $10,000 per  year for community planning to  the regional district," stated planning committee chairman Harvey  Bist.  Council's discussion centered  around the future possibility of  regional areas B and C wishing to  join the municipality, and it was  felt that, should such occur, both  parties could enter into a cost-  sharing arrangement at that time to  cover the expenses of integrating  community plans and doing the  necessary rezoning.  Council will have to continue to  pay the annual $10,000 fee for  another two years, to allow continuity in programs already  budgeted for while fiscal adjustments are made, and must then  continue to give yearly notice that  it wishes not to be involved. It can  regain its part in the planning programs merely by not giving notice  in the future..  As planning committee chairman, Bist will discuss with  downtown merchants possibilities  for downtown revitalization projects. Noting that six grants are  available for such work, "we  should be working in concert with  downtown   business   people   to  enhance and expand our  downtown business core," he said.  Mayor Kolibas commented that  meetings between council and the  Sechelt and District Chamber of  Commerce "should be an on-going  thing". The two groups have  already met together once, and the  next meeting is scheduled for the  first part of October.  Alderman Bist also informed  council that six proposals regarding  the development of Sechelt's  seawall have been received, and invited each alderman to read the  proposals and think about how the  $5,000 which council has already  allocated for an initial study of the  development of the seawall might  be spent.    Once again the village of Sechelt has lost one of its finer citizens  in the person of Mr. Mervyn Boucher. Even though his term as  mayor of the village was cut short due to illness, he continued to be  a staunch supporter and critic of village council affairs, he was  always willing to lend his expertise to any sitting council.  His position on the library board will have to be filled, and they  will have to look far to find a replacement who would be such a  staunch believer in the public facility as Mr. Boucher has been.  His expert legal knowledge was invaluable to the committee and  it Was due to his unstinting efforts on its behalf, that the present  library association came to be formed.  On this firm base which he established, it will be for future committees and citizens to bring the library to a full accredited status.  We extend condolences to Mardi in her loss.

These are difficult times for Canada and the new prime  minister will be confronted with difficulties as great as any that  have troubled the country in the past.  One of the gifts that Mr. Mulroney brings to his job is the  understanding for the need for civility in matters political. It  seems that he will bring a healing touch to those areas of interaction with the provinces which, while always difficult, have  been exacerbated to the point of impossibility by the arrogance  of the Trudeau-led Liberals.  All Canadians will welcome a return to civility and reconciliation. The problems that face us are real enough without the atmosphere of bitterness and hostility that has grown among us.  If we have reservations here about the next four years under  the Mulroney grovernment they are concerned with the areas of  foreign policy and, above all, the economy. It is the Conservative position that our relationship with the United States must  be improved, which means taking public positions on all foreign  policy matters which please the wayward giant to the south of  us, and that the doors must be thrown open once more without  let or hindrance to American investment.  It is difficult to. understand how this will lead to the dawning  of a new economic day for Canada. The country is already by  far the most foreign-owned of any developed economy and  there is nothing in recent record to indicate that being a branch  plant economy for the multi-nationals is the way to Canadian  prosperity.  Be that as it may, Mulroney is confronted with awesome  challenges and we wish him well. If the unlikely assertion is true  that the Irish have more luck, our Prime Minister is going to  need all that he can get.  Tories dose  Locally the margin cf victory for incumbent MP Ray Skelly  of the NDP is one of the surprises of the B.C. scene. Tory gains  in B.C. were limited to seats marginally held in 1980. Where  NDP incumbents had large leads, as in New Westminster, Burnaby and Kamloops, the margin of victory increased.  Only Skelly's riding, ours, saw a safe seat slip drastically in  the margin of victory. .  Local Conservatives must be commended for the vigorous  and determined campaign that they waged on behalf of the man  of their choice. Their hopes for capturing the seat in the next  election must now be justifiably high, depending, of course, on  how well the new government performs.  5 YEARS AGO  Representatives from  Hydro, the Environment and  Land Use Committee and the  Cheekeye-Dunsmuir Coalition met in Sechelt to  discuss possible routes and  substation locations. No firm  decision was reached.  A community referendum  is slated for the people of  Roberts Creek who will be  asked to approve the financing of a $350,000 community  centre. Once electoral approval is received, application for a provincial grant of  one third to one half the total  cost will be made.

During  the formative years of a settlement, official local government did not  exist. Over and above the earning of l,fes necessities, the prime need  was the shaping of a community out of an increasing number of  homes and small businesses. Almost as the first homes were being  built, some sort of organization emerged. A school and a church  would be needed. For a time at least, the school would serve as a  public meeting place. A community association would come into being. Perhaps a Development League. Perhaps a branch of the  Farmers' Institute. Perhaps a Women's Institute. Through meetings  of formal or informal groups, social needs of the settlement were  discussed, to be met later to the extent they could be met by human  endeavour. At such meetings, authority was not delegated, but decisions were reached through a consensus of all adult citizens willing  and able to attend. Although certain "born leaders" made their  presence felt, no one considered himself or herself a mere follower.  The solid lines of most pioneer settlements developed from the locations of schools, churches, and, most indicative of co-operative effort, community halls. Sointula, about 1920. Photo courtesy A.B.

We were sitting in his  cabin over a cup of coffee watching  the first of the fall rains batter  against his window, there Was a  grey restless sea outside and what  birds were in view werevblown by  the wind past our line of sight or,  occasionally, flapping methodically  against the wind in search, perhaps,  *^4?fjust such a haven as we were en-  ^M%uigM    :x X  ��� x "You  know,"  said  Jake,  "it  : could be 'worse. I know I said that  the  Canadian  lemmings,   having  tired of the Liberal cliff, were about  to throw themselves over a Conservative cliff and they have; But I  have a feeling it could be worse."  "Explain, please."  "I  still  believe that  the  Progressive Conservatives are about as  unlovely a collection! of opportunistic appetites as you could wish  to find in political life. And I've  heard all of the comparisons being  made between this Tory victory and  the Diefenbaker debacle in 1958,  but there is a difference this time  around."  "Which is?"  Jake was in no mood to be hurried. He took the time to knock the  dotde from his pipe and to replenish  our coffee cups, then he stuck a  piece of alder into the old wood  stove.  "I've seen the day when we  wouldn't have burnt this stuff," he  said gesturing at the alder logs in the  firebox, "but we're running out of  the better wood or are/sending it  whole to the Japanese."  "The difference between the  Diefenbaker sweep and the  Mulroney blue tide, Jake."  "Don't get your shorts in a knot,  young fellow," said Jake and settled himself comfortably in the rocking chair and started to refill his  pipe before he answered. *  "The principal difference lies in  those two men," he said finally.  "When   Diefenbaker   won   his  Jake on Mulroney  200-odd seats in 1958 he'd been  prime minister for nine months with  a minority government. What  Mulroney did on September 4 took  Diefenbaker two cracks. First he  won a minority, then on the second  -go round he swept Quebec and had  his massive majority. It was built on  the same degree of exasperation and  frustration with the Liberals that  fueled Mulroney's drive this time.  ^ tThen, as now, the Liberals had been  '^so long in power that the only thing  that equalled their arrogance was  their exhaustion and ineptitude."  "But thedifference, Jake, what's  .,���   the difference?."  "You'll do yourself an injury if  ���you don't get your shorts unknotted," said Jake. "There's no rush.  We've got at least four years to contemplate Brian Mulroney in action  and to identify what makes him different from John Diefenbaker."  I said nothing and waited. I  should have known better than try  to rush him.  "When Diefenbaker because  ;���' prime minister he had never  organized anything larger than a  one-lawyer office. The man was a  life-long maverick, a criminal  lawyer whose greatest career successes were built on the adversary  system of the courts. When problems arose in his caucus he did  what he'd done all his life, he attacked. Add to that the fact that  nothing in his background had  prepared him to deal with Quebec  and that the Quiet Revolution in  that province sneaked up on him  halfway through his term and you  have the recipe for the debacle that  followed the Diefenbaker sweep.  "Mulroney, on the other hand,  has built his career on negotiation.  He is a conciliator and from all accounts a good one. He's also  X Quebecois and doesn't have the major blind spot that did Diefenbaker  in. It is possible that he could grow  into a great prime minister. He cerT  tainly has the opportunity that he's  wanted all his adult life."  "I must say you surprise me,  Jake."  "Well, it won't do you any harm  necessarily to have your preconceptions jolted some. Whether by me  or Brian Mulroney;" said Jake.  "Mind, now, I'm not predicting  it's going to happen," said Jake.  "The facts remain that Mulroney  has inherited an economic mess the  like of which Canadians did not  dream was possible w^en.^De^fjpii;  baker came"'to power and that the  caucus he leads contains an, enormously high proportion of. back-  stabbling, self-impaling dinosaurs.  "Still, I've been looking at  Mulroney with some interest. It is  just possible that he will grow with  the job. It is just possible he will  provide the kind of leadership that  Canada needs. If he, does, he will  become in the next four years a dif-  ^  ferent, deeper man then the one  who came to power. But I think'  the possibility exists and that gives  us more reason to hope than we've,  had for years." .  ''"'  "How does he differ from  Trudeau. We swept him into power,  too, remember."  "Another maverick. Another  one-man band," said Jake, "more  like Diefenbaker than anyone imagined. Trudeau had never  bothered io get 'along with anyone  in his life.' .���"  ' "It is just possible that Mulroney  can make a start to having this  sprawling mass of quarrelling  regions begin to feel like one coun.  try again. Anyway, that's enough of  that. How about a game of cribbage  and a glass of wine?"  "You're on Jake," I said, and  for a while we turned to other mat.  ters.  -<3��i^5S^<��>  Come Travel With Me  (from Song of the Open Road)  Listen!

Walt Whitman  Dedicated to Pat and Brad on the occasion of their wedding.  A new educational approach  Our young need challenges  by Michael Burns  Aruni was tired; tired,. hungry  and nearing the point of exhaustion. His skin, stretched tightly  over his gaunt frame, exposed all  too visibly the healing welts of deep  wounds received from his fall in  the Suma gorge. His eyes, bloodshot from the glaring sun peered  out over the dry scrubland.  There it was rising majestically,  the tall reddish pillar of sandstone  just a short day's walk from his  village. His parched, cracked lips  smiled and with heart beating expectantly, pride and elation soothed the hurt and hunger.  He pictured his arrival in the  village; the elders would be  gathered to greet and receive him,  his family, relatives and friends  would all be there accepting him  into their midst no longer a child  but a full fledged adult member of  the community.  So ended Aruni's initiation into  manhood and responsible social  participation:    a   six    month  walkabout, a test pitting individual  against the elements where heat,  drought   and   hunger   competed  against skill, cunning and stamina.  It may seem there exists no connection   between   the   Australian  ;   Aborigine passage from youth to  maturity and those customs practised by our own culture, but Dr.  Maurice Gibbons, a professor of  education at Simon Fraser University has for the past 15 years been  developing   an   educational   approach called "Walkabout" based  not    so    much    on    similar  characteristics but using rather the  underlying motivations and prin-  '   ciples which make the walkabout  successful.  "In the early 1970's a number of  . commissions   expressed   concern  , about the failure of high schools to  i prepare adolescents for the transi  tion to adulthood. I felt the concern was valid and began a study of  the transitional tasks set by various  peoples for their young and I  wondered what would be an equally appropriate challenge to make  the transition to adulthood in our  more sophisticated technological  society."  Dr. Gibbons concluded that it  was necessary to teach our young  to challenge themselves, to set the  most ambitious tasks they could  devise by designing their own  challenges, negotiating their plans  with parents and teachers, pursuing their tasks and then  demonstrating their accomplishments to the school and  community.  It became clear jo Dr. Gibbons  that the role of teacher would have  to alter dramatically and shift from  presenter of content tp coach of  student performance. As such the  teacher would inform, train, guide,  counsel and inspire; students in  ways that would help them become  excellent at what they decided to  do. ���    .    *.  "The emphasis changes," Dr.  Gibbons said, "from a teacher  oriented to a self-directed approach on the part of the student.  In effect we are saying, 'You have  a major responsibility for what you  learn here. We will show you how  and give you all the training, practice and support that we can - but  learning is your job now and for  the rest of your life'."    .  Using that .appraoch it becomes  obvious that students are not merely being taught to take control of  their learning in order to take control of their lives, they are also being taught to take control of their  lives in order to learn.

Being very active in the dog  >*'scene", both on the Peninsula  -;*and many other areas, I am very  >disturbed by the abundance of lit-  yters being bred by uninformed  ���^'backyard" breeders. I receive  '.-phone calls from, and am ap-  Mproachcd in person by persons  ^wishing to know this or that about  ^breeding their dog. The ignorance  ^people show is shocking. While  ���jrio'mc are well-intentioned, most  'give little regard to the real reason  -for breeding purebred dogs���to  breed better examples of the particular breed!  . ���  The present  temperament   problems in breeds such as the Ger-  Mnan    Shepherd    and    Golden  Retriever   could   be   directly   attributed   to   persons    who    are  \breeding   animals    with    suspect  temperament   (with   apologies   to  , .jiome, there are good examples of  the aforementioned breeds).  You  don't    get    tomatoes    from  watermelons! If there are Haws in a  dog's  behaviour  and   you   breed  that   clog,  you  can  expect   those  ���Jlaws to be inherited by the offspring.  Some of the reasons people state  for breeding the bitch are: ���  ��v 1 .'"To make some money" - not  always admitted but most often a  prime motive. Anyone who properly raises a litter through weaning, inoculations and feeding and  tallies the cost in time and monev  will realize the profits are minimal.  Many puppy-rearing decisions based on economics seriously affect  the puppies.  2. "We've heard she should have  one litter" - there is no biological  or physiological reason for a bitch  to be bred or raise a litter. Indeed  there is the potential for whelping  complications, etc. Ideally a bitch  should be spayed at about six months of age and before her first  season.  3. "She's a really nice dog - we'll  have no trouble getting rid of her  puppies" - an unknowledgeable  owner is a poor judge of the bitch's  qualities. If there are so many people looking for puppies, why are  there so many unwanted dogs in  pounds and running at large?  There are other refutable  motives but these are the most  common.  My pet axiom for breeding dogs  is - "You breed your best to your  best, and cull the rest." It sounds  callous but has merits and options.  Breeders of show dogs are overwhelmingly trying to breed better  dogs. You have successes and  failures in the breedings. The  failures can be failures in conformation to the breed standard. In  many cases, these animals are  totally suitable as pets and are sold  as such at a reasonable price with a  non-breeding   contract   applying.  Puppies with serious faults are culled.  I encourage owners to give long  and careful consideration before  deciding to breed their dog. It's  true in the dog sport "If you're not  part of the solution - you're part of  the problem!"  One final warning to the prospective puppy buyers. Carefully  examine the puppy and parents.  Everything your puppy becomes is  enormously influenced by its  genetic inheritances. Your $100  bargain loses its appeal when it  becomes either a temperamental or  conformational cripple.  Gordon Pollock  Editor:  I wish to thank you most sincerely for paying for half of the advertisement of my exhibition at the  Hunter Gallery for cancer  research. I realize that times are  very bad so sales have been  somewhat slow, still I do feel eventually these pictures will sell, and  that the proceeds will go to cancer  research as I stated.  I gave an exhibition in Ontario  before I left six years ago. We  made $1,100 for cancer research  and I have the letters to prove it!  How times have changed!  Hazel Coxall  Staff layoffs explained  Editor:  Further to Mrs. Lynda Olsen's  letter in last week's issue, I would  like to clarify what I read as an implication, and to provide some additional information re the staff  layoffs mentioned by Mrs. Olsen.  The perceived implication is that  the school trustees are unaware of  the short-term staff layoffs. That is  not correct, they were kept fully informed of the options and the  negotiations with the union in this  regard.  In the matter of additional information, the public should be aware  that the three per cent time off  without pay was an agreement between the board and the union. As  Mrs. Olsen points out, the reduction in provincial funding in 1984  faced the school board with inescapable staff reductions. In the  case of teachers, there will be fewer  teachers from September than we  had on June 30. In the case of  CUPE, it was mutually agreed between the board and the union that  rather than have any individual  lose his/her job completely it  would be preferable that every  union member work three per cent  fewer   hours   and,   accordingly,  Where are the jobs?  Editors Note: The following was  received for publication.  ' Open letter to Premier Bennett  Mr. Premier:  On July 7,1983 you announced  that your, government was going to  lead' the 'province through a period  of "restraint, recovery and  reality."  ' You also said that your restraint  program would create the kind of  economic climate needed to attract  investment which in turn would  create jobs for British Columbians.  . Your minister of finance, Hugh  Curtis, was very explicit when he  said, "The ultimate benefit of the  government's restraint program  will be a healthy and sustainable  economic recovery."  We have now seen and experienced the terrible price that  your restraint policies have extracted from our society.  We have not yet seen the "sustainable economic recovery" or the  jobs created by restraint.  It is a matter of fact that we are  now worse off than ever. Mr.  Premier, your restraint program is  not working.  According to the most recent  economic forecasts, our province  will be the last in Canada to experience an economic recovery.  Your government's restraint program has been identified as one of  the main causes, and has driven investment away from B.C. rather  than attracting it.  1. Restraint has increased the  number of unemployed in B.C. to  oyer 220^000. Our unemployment  ralle iri B.C. is the highest in the  country, 'outside of Newfoundland. 2. Capital investment  in B.C. has dropped from 14.3  billion in 1981 to 11.9 billion in  1984. 3. The growth of B.C.'s  gross provincial product has  declined from 1.5 per cent in 1983  to .7 per cent this year. 4. Restraint  has not reduced our taxes. The  money that you claimed would be  saved by cancelling government  services and . firing public  employees has not been passed on  to the taxpayers. Instead, you have  raised our taxes.  It is obvious to most British Columbians that your restraint programs have failed to produce a  single job, and the money saved as  a result of the cuts in government  services has not gone towards job  creation programs.  Mr. Premier, the issue is simple  and straightforward: WHERE  ARE THE JOBS THAT HAVE  BEEN        CREATED BY  RESTRAINT?  From the 450,000 members of  Operation Solidarity, on behalf  of the 220,000 unemployed  workers of B.C.  Late ferry wanted  Editor:  The Papal visit on September 18  is a very historical day.  The Sechelt Indian Band will be  sending a bus load of Elders to attend the special event at B.C.  Place. But, due to the inconvenience of the ferry schedule, these  Elders may have to spend a night in  Vancouver. As everyone knows,  the cost of hotels is very expensive  these days, and these Elders could  not afford the unnecessary cost.  Hopefully, Mr. Editor, by prin  ting this letter and with the support  of other interested groups or persons attending this event, the B.C.  Ferry Corporation will consider  putting on an additional late ferry  to accommodate the people on this  very special day.  Chief Stanley Earl Joe Dixon  Sechelt Indian Band  EDITOR'S NOTE: B.C. Ferry  Corporation informed the Coast  News that the September 18, 9:15  ferry from Langdale would depart  when full or at 9:45 p.m. at the  latest.  *3��fifc;  -W  ���imp  W&&**��  *x  11:1  ���HJIJ,  - JMBHMWWBHMII hi  \  -     WStaMI  J  f            i  Private Sale.

It was left to the individual  CUPE member and his/her individual supervisor to agree on the  schedule by which the three per  cent less time would be taken off.  The thought was that by providing  that degree of flexibility it should  be possible for the employee to  take off the time when it would be  valuable to him/her and at a time  when it would have minimum impact on the efficiency of the school  district's operation. I believe that  the employees and their supervisors  will be able tp work out a schedule  which minunizes the impact, but,  despite everybody's best efforts,  there will doubtless be some effect  on services^;  Current indications are that the  funding level for education in this  school district in 1985 will be about  two per cent less than it was in  1984, so regrettably we are not  through with cuts. The board will  continue to make every effort to  make those cuts in a manner which  has minimum impact on the  students and minimum impact on  the staff.  R.

September 10,1984  George in Gibsons  @ Blarney stogie  by George Cooper  "Not another castle," is often  uttered by the flagging Canadian  tourist as his tour bus grinds by  under the threatening portcullis.  Castles are drafty, ominous places,  it's true and one or two will fill the  needs'of the tourist.  Yet each one is different in a  detail or two.  The Blarney Castle, for instance,  has given its name to sly flattery,  humbug, and made a fortune for  its owners from the long lines of  tourists along the parapet and  down the spiral stone stairs.  And they're all waiting to kiss  the Blarney Stone, pan of a stone  window frame about six feet below  the top of the wall. Visions of  hanging by your heels over the outside of the wall are indeed unnerving. But the operation is  simple���done from a ledge a foot  below below the parapet walkway,  and aided by attendants who lower  one down and up like a dry run for  a baptism. The photographer will  provide proof that you have the  blarney���for a fee. Of course for  9p in the souvenir shop one can get  a certificate of proof on which you  enter your name.   ..  A simple way to gain eloquence,  and cheap too.  Only in one castle, and that one  in Amberly, Hants, has the castle  privy been preserved intact adjacent to the lord's chamber. A black  slate seat with two appropriately  shaped apertures that hung over  the 60-foot drop of castle wall was  the high class convenience of the  11-1200's. One had a' piercing  uneasy feeling imagining an enemy  archer slipping up to the foot of  the wall and letting fly the long  shafted arrow straight up the wall  towards the lord of the castle  mooning above.  It does take the viewing of a few  castles to get the idea it's better to  see them rather than live in them.  Tired of Travelling?

John Mervyn Boucher served a  short but very active term as mayor  of Sechelt, from November 1979 to  June 1980. His resignation was due  to ill health, but his help to the  village community did not end until September 7, 1984 when he lost  his long battle with cancer. Elected  president of the Sechelt  Ratepayer's Association in 1979,  his popularity there led to his  mayoralty seat. He was first chairman of the Sechelt Public Library  Association, giving that organization a great boost both with his  legal experience and his farsightedness.  MERVYN BOUCHER  Merv resigned from the library  board in August saying he felt the  library was in good hands which  Gibsons first with phone mart  Gibsons has been selected as the  site (if the first B.C. Tel Service  Mart as pan of a field trial extending phone mart-type services to  smaller communities.  Phone Marts have proven successful over the past decade in  larger centres in serving customers'  service and repair needs, says  district customer service manager  Perry Hedman. Now the concept  of a local service point is being extended to small communities, with  the first Service Mart located in the  B.C. Tel building on North Road,  off Highway 101, in Gibsons.  The Service Mart will provide  Sunshine Coast residents with free  bill payment, order placement, and  equipment pick-up and return services.  The Service Mart will be open  Monday to Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5  p.m. during a six-month trial.  Employees Barbara Chiasson and  Marie Synnot will each work three  days a week at the Service Mart  providing local assistance to  customers. Rental telephone equipment   will   be   on   display,   and  customers will be able to purchase  extension cords and long distance  gift certificates.  Provided their equipment can be  unplugged from the wall outlet, all  residential and single-line business  customers may use the Service  Mart for repair contacts. If their  rented set cannot be fixed on the  spot,  a  replacement  set  will  be  issued.  Single-line residential subscribers  will be able to order rental  telephone equipment for pick-up at  the mart. Where no premise visit  by B.C. Tel staff is required, this  will result in a saving to the  customer   in   some   cases.  was so typical of him, always uplifting in his support of people and  projects. He was chairman of the  Board of Variance until the end.  Merv Boucher was born on a  farm near Emo, Ontario, moving  with this family to Vancouver at  age 12. Graduating with honours  from John Oliver High School at  the age of 16, he joined the  superintendent's office of the  CPR, then in 1939 moved to Edmonton, Alberta as manager for  Canada Roof Products.  When war broke out he was  hired by the U.S. engineering  department as superintendent of  transportation with headquarters  in Whitehorse.  He served in the navy during  World War II, and after his  discharge he entered UBC and obtained his law degree. Articling  with D.F. McNeil, in Quesnei he  opened his own office in 1950 at  the corner of Knight Road and  Kingsway where he practised until  transferring his practice to his staff  in 1978 and moving to Sechelt.  Merv and his wife Mardi purchased the Opeongo Lodge on the  corner of Highway 101 and Shorncliffe Avenue changing the name to  Edgecombe Estates, making a very  gracious home with beautiful  gardens for the two of them.  ��� A sportsman, he played most  sports and was a member of the  Capilano Golf and Country Club  at death. Very active in the musical  field, he was a former member of  the Edmonton Civic Opera Society  and the Belasco Players. He sang in  a male quartet over stations CJCA  and CFRN.  He was former chairman of the  Building Committee and member  of the Oakridge Baptist Church.  Survived by Mardi his loving  wife of 35 years exactly, as he died  on their wedding anniversary; a  sister Olive Baker of Parksville; a  sister Phyllis Fleming of Seattle;  and a brother Stuart of Delta.

Our deepest sympathy goes  out to his wife Ena and family.  Art was a long-time resident of  Halfmoon Bay and was known for  his willingness to always lend a  hand when needed. He was a  Grand Monarch in the Lions Club.  It was Art who quietly financed  the first ambulance in Halfmoon  Bay in the days when the hospital  was located in Garden Bay.  Funeral service will be at the Devlin  Funeral Home on Monday,  September 10 at 11 a.m.  The family have requested no  flowers and donations may be sent  to St. Mary's Hospital specifically  for the repair of the Hoyer lift or  purchase of a new one.  This would be a most suitable  memorial for a man who helped  others so much in his life time and  who will be remembered by all who  knew him as a good man.

To judge our show on the 15th  we have invited Mrs. Mildred Wells  of the B.C. Council of Garden  dubs.

"We won one game on the  last ball, and another on the last six  balls. It was quite a team effort!"

As education receives cutbacks and B.C. Rail receives additional monies I would question  sincerely where to direct one's  anger. Is it at the local administration? I think probably not.  I was in a type of split class during grades four and five. It was not  the worst situation ever, but in  some subjects I was ready to go  faster and couldn't. We did a lot of  work on our own while the teacher  went and worked with the other  half and although it was good to  work on my own I would listen to  what the teacher was telling the  Hey Dad,  look at this  great book I got!  Uh-Not  just now!  I get so  frustrated not  being able to  read to him.  Well dear,  I told you  about the ABLE  program!  Oh ya!  That private &  confidential  tutoring class!  The number's  88S-351S,  why don't  you call them?  other half. The teacher called that  "dilly-dallying" but my attention  is always forcused on other people  rather than books or workMf I'm  given the opportunity.  So much for split classes and I  hope our government soon realizes  that children's minds are the future  decision makers. If they don't have  the tops in education they may not  be capable of the precise yet  creative thinking that will be needed to take us out of these troubled  waters.  ELECTION GARBAGE  While I'm on government and  such, I. am already tired of seeing  all the political signs. People take  them off their yards well enough,  after all it's their yard they can do  as they wish, but if you put one on  a tree on the highway, do everyone  a favour and clean up now. I feel  an intense dislike for any Party  that doesn't look after its own garbage.  GOLF COURSE  To those of you who have taken  wood from the golf course and not  yet paid, please remit your $10 per  load donation to Box 96, Madeira  Park. Also, due to government  regulations the taking of any  hemlock, fir or cedar can result in  legal charges. They are simply not  allowed to sell or give it away. So  stick to alder and maple, do it on  weekends only and pay up as  you're already getting a good deal!  EATING OUT  The restaurant at Garden Bay  Hotel will stay open each evening  for all of September. Roger and  Elizabeth will take their well earned rest and a whole new crew with  a lot of familiar faces will take  over. Drop in to see them and  you'll find out who they are. They  seem to be excited about their Sunday Smorgasbord. I think that in  fairness to each other, the local  restaurants that stay open for the  winter should stagger their  smorgasbords, that way we'll all  benefit and so will they. Otherwise,  someone gets squeezed out and  we'll lose. How about it? A  smorgasbord Friday, Saturday and  Sunday night, you choose your  restaurant or do all three? It's a  suggestion for survival.  ART SUPPORT  All the staff from the Shadow  Baux Gallery and the Bookstore in  the Garden Bay Hotel would like  to thank Pender Harbour patrons  for their support and friendliness  throughout the summer. They really enjoyed their season up here and  I know Diane Nicholson felt like  she'd been on a working holiday.

You will no doubt have received a letter appealing for  support of the Sunshine Coast Community Services Society  and a diagram showing how the budget of $989,900 is  spent.  Firstly, I share the conviction with many others in our community that "charity begins at home", and that we need to  become more self-reliant in looking after those in need in our  own community.  The society, which was formed in 1974 has become a  strong very well organized service organization. It has a 2 1  member volunteer board and invites members and supporters  to its semi-annual general meeting to be held September |8  at 7:30 p.m. at the Davis Bay elementary school.

As I said, I believe in the privjtization of social services.  Through this society, and its paid and volunteers workers we  can control the variety and quality of needed services.  Here's how you can .help! They wish to establish an ongoing annual membership subscription program to pay for  the local share of these services, so that we can have our own  input.

Coast News, September 10,1984  iain reading si  As summer turns to autumn,  people's thoughts turn to fall projects and pursuits. Many people  look to educational institutions in  this endeavour, whether it be  university or college classes, night,  classes through continuing education or children going to school.  Others would also like to pursue  educational avenues, however,  they do not wish to participate in a  classroom setting. Some of these  people will take correspondence  classes, yet others who have poor  reading and writing skills will  believe that there are no programs  for them. It is for this last group of  people that the Adult Basic  Literacy Education (ABLE) program was developed by Continuing  Education of School District #46.  There are many reasons why  people who lack reading and  writing skills do not wish to participate in a classroom setting. For  some, classes dp.not promote learning. Others feel self-conscious  about their reading and writing  skills. Others cannot attend classes  due to a variety of constraints such  as transportation, family, time and  health. These people would prefer  to be tutored in the privacy of their  own homes, the tutor's home or a  neutral location. The ABLE program is a home based program.  Trained volunteer tutors work on a  one-to-one basis with a student to  help   them  improve  their  basic,  reading and writing skills.  As summer turns-to fall, many  individuals who lack basic reading  and writing skills do not think-  about educational pursuits! They  may wish to improve these skills,  yet they believe they cannot learn.  They have been taught they are  "stupid". They avoid any written  materials. They believe they are the  only adults who cannot, read.  About 20 per cent of Canadian  adults are considered to be functionally illiterate. These people are  not "stupid". Many of them excel  in many areas of their lives.  For one reason or another these  people did not learn to read and  write as children or they only learned to read or write poorly. The  ABLE program gives them another  chance to learn these skills. Since  these people cannot read our  posters or this article, we rely on  you to tell them about our program.  Do you read articles, letters or  other materials to someone who  can't read themselves? Do you fill  out forms, write letters or notes for  someone who can't dp it  themselves? If so, please tell them  about our program. Help them by  letting them help themselves.  For more information call  Angela Minten at 885-3512 or  885-4630.  At the Arts Centre  A family affair  by Belinda Maeleod  ��� "Relative Art", the new exhibition opening on Wednesday,  September 12 at the Arts Centre,  Sechelt, shows landscape paintings  and prints by a talented family of  artisfs, Chris Pratt, Michael Pratt  and Nena Braathen.  ' Chris Pratt, mother of Michael  and Nena, has a varied  background of studies, covering a  range of media, in Vancouver and  Mexico. Nena also studied in Vancouver and Mexico and specializes  m.etching and lithography/while  Michael has studied on his own,  learning much from his mother,  sister and friends.  Naturally there are many  similarities in background and  bonds of sympathy for each  other's work, nevertheless they remain three very individual and different artists, coming together as a  family to exhibit with, for the time  being, a unifying wish to express  themselves through the depiction  of landscape.  An opportunity to meet the artists at a reception for them will be  held from 7 lo 9 p.m. on Friday,  September 14 at the Arts Centre.  A Family Affair  Licensed  Marine Or., Gibsons.

(Maclean's, Canada),  "...a young artist, who may well  become one of our premier  cellists." (New York Times),  "...the virtuosity that she has  developed is the next best thing to  sheer magic." (The Montreal  Gazette).  These are a sampling of the stunning reviews this outstanding  young artist has received  throughout Europe and America.

It is difficult for children to become  physically sturdy and agile without  vigorous movement. And it is difficult for a child to be emotionally  responsive if the non-verbal part of  their development is limited.  Dance is an opportunity for  children to, explore their own ways  of moving and to develop other  ways of moving. Dance provides  the medium for creating, interpreting, imitating and expressing  ideas, feelings, understanding, and  knowledge of the everyday world.  Leslie Manning EUett will be  starting creative dance classes for  children on Saturdays, beginning  September 15 at the Twilight  Theatre. She has recently moved to  Gibsons from Vancouver where  she performed and taught modern  dance with the Paula Ross Dance  Company from 1973 to 1983.  in her classes, familiar actions  and fundamental locomotor  movements are emphasized: running, leaping; collasping, balancing  and spinning. These activities are  structured through a number of  rhythmic, speech, drama, and  music sequences, later incorporating movement aspects of  poetry and music, stories, images  of the environment, as well as  stories about childrens' own experiences.

This change is because  the group is going south to Fort  Warden, Wash, for a weekend  dance workshop, where they dance  night and day to improve their  technique.  The enthusiasm shown by the  members is so keen that the instructor, Don Cadenhead, has offered to'teach technique plus more  dance steps on Wednesdays as well  as the regular Fridays.  The club's annual barbeque was  a great success, with bagpipes  played, outside on the lawn  overlooking the water, where the  pleasure boats stopped to listen to  the sounds of good old Scottish  tunes, which were played by Joan  Bist, Gordie Ross and Daniel Bist  of the Sechelt Legion Pipe Band.  This was interspersed with the odd  bugle call by Harvey Bist, reminiscent of his navy days.  A demonstration dance was put  on by the instructor, Don and two  zealous members, Rosemary Fay  and Steph Biggs, to show what can  be   learned   this   fall.    It   was  beautifully executed.  Everyone had a good time and is  looking forward to the fall session.  For those not familiar with Scottish country dancing, they might be  interested to note that the music  used is not the familiar bagpipe,  but a dance band record consisting  of an accordion, fiddle, base fiddle, snare drum and piano.  Anyone is interested in seeing  what the dance is really like, (at the  beginners level) they may come and  watch and join in if they wish. All  are welcome, just call 886-2366.  Stephanie Biggs  Fraser Institute no charity  Editor  ' CBC Radio recently reported  that Revenue Canada is investigating the tax status of several  leading charities. Their right to  charitable status was being  challenged because of so-called  political activism. Evidently it is  not permissible, under the  Charities Act, to attempt to influence government opinion or to  change government policy. If the  charities mentioned in the CBC  report can be accused of political  interference and of being nonpartisan, certainly the Fraser Institute deserves to be investigated  for the same violations. This B.C.  organization's stated purpose is to  influence all levels of government  with the intention of changing  society as we know it to a system of  laissez-faire capitalism where only  the strong survive. The Social  Credit government's policies in the  past year have been implemented  as a direct result of Fraser Institute  interference.  By definition, charity means the  providing of help to the poor or  needy, or an organization to aid  those in need. It can also mean the  inclination to think well of others,  tolerance or leniency. The Fraser  Institute believes in the abolition of  social services, Medicare, the  minimum wage and unemployment  insurance. It supports the right to  discriminate as a desirable feature  of free societies. In short it is a  most uncharitable organization.  That an organization as morally  bankrupt as the Fraser Institute  can continue to enjoy charitable  status while worthwhile charities  are being harrassed is reprehensible. I urge you to investigate this  matter further.  Ray Skelly, MP  Parliament Buildings  Ottawa, Ont.  Contradiction questioned  EDITOR'S NOTE: The following  open letter was sent to the Sun & a  copy received for publication.  Premier W. R. Bennett  Parliament Buildings  4506 Government St.  ^Victoria. B.C.  3Dear Premier Bennett:  j�� We make use of this unusual  Mway of contacting you  because  .other means have failed.  �� You did not respond to our letter of May 15 nor to that of July  17. We find it disconcerting and insulting to realize that you think so  little of some of your constituents  that you Choose to ignore some of  their concerns.  Your neglect is further  deplorable because our specific  area of concern, the nuclear arms  race, is one which every sincere  politician should be taking every  opportunity to influence.    _ ^  Simply put, our two previoustet-  ters questioned why you on the one  hand would bother to speak words  of encouragement and hope to the  participants of the Vancouver  April 28 Peace Walk, "There has  never been a time in history where  man has stood so close to the edge  of destruction, nor a time where  man's capacity to achieve world  peace been so near at hand.",  while at the same time your  highways   department   does   not  allow the erection of "Nuclear Free  Zone" signs and busies itself tearing down this simple and symbolic  demonstration of people's concern.  We cannot understand this  serious contradiction and are further exasperated by your unwillingness to respond to our appeals.  M.

Elphie Old Boys took a hard-  fought 3-2 victory in the delayed  final game last Tuesday. Alex  Skytte was the wining pitcher, Wee  Pee Peters pitched valiantly for the  losers and also contributed the only  home run of the game.  Elphie who finished third in  league play were the underdogs going into the series. The whole series  was as close as the final game and  provided some great entertainment  for the many fans who came out.  Elphie took a 2-0 lead in the top  of the fourth. Kerry Eldred scored  on Dick Scott's ground ball. Scott  was then driven home on a hit by  Bob Crosby. Ken Mac got one ruii  back in the bottom of the fourth-.  Wee  Pec  Peers scored  on  Rich  Godfray's single.  The score stayed 2-1 until the  sixth when Dick Scott led off with  a double and was sacrificed to third  by Skytte. Ken Johnson followed  with a pinch hit RBI his second  game, winning pinch hit in the  finals.  Ken Mac got one back in the  bottom of the sixth when Wee Pee  hit a lead-off home run to account  for the final run of the game. Al  Braun, Kerry Eldred of Elphi and  Wee Pee Peers and Rich Godfray  of Ken Mac each had two hits in  the game.  Play in the outfield was made  dangerous by someone who took  the wire off the fence but left the  steel posts in the ground. Luckily  no one was injured.  A TIDE   TABLES  1   -A^^fft *  Wed.

The break-in is  believed to have occurred at  anytime since last July 21. Four  hundred dollars worth of lab  equipment and supplies were  stolen.  A break and entry at Smitty's  was reported on the same day.  Three hundred dollars worth of  food stuff and dry goods was taken  by a suspect who was later apprehended by police. Twenty-two  year old Robert Smith of Gibsons  was charged with break, entry and  theft and was sentenced to two  months in jail. A trail of food left  by Smith led police right to Smith's  residence where the remainder of  the goods stolen were found.  Six rods and reels valued at $350  were stolen from a boat belonging  to a Gibsons waterfront residence.  The theft was reported on  September 4.  A vehicle belonging to a Keats  Island resident was vandalized  while parked in Gibsons on Winn  Road since August 31. A vent win  dow was smashed and the car was  rifled. Damages were estimated at  $60.  SECHELT RCMP  Several break and entries were  reported last week.  On the second, an attempt was  made to enter the St. Mary's  Hospital Auxiliary Thrift Shop  during the early morning hours.  Blood was found on the broken  glass and police were able to use it  as evidence to charge Sechelt man  Anthony Baptiste with break and  entry with intent. Shortly after the  attempt, Baptiste had gone to St.  Mary's Hospital emergency room  for treatment of a wound supposedly incurred during a stabbing.  Attending staff at St. Mary's felt  the wound was too jagged to be  caused by a knife and notified  police.  On September 2, two cabins  located at Camp Olave were  broken into. Two fire extinguishers  valued at $35 each were taken. One  extinguisher was discharged in one  of the cabins.  A residence on Rabbit Island  was broken into between August  22 and August 29. A 12' Spr  ingbok, a 8' fibreglass dinghy, an  outboard motor, a radio and  assorted household objects were  taken. Police are still investigating.  On September 6, Sunshine GM  premises were entered and a stereo  equalizer valued at $600 was taken.  The Gulf bulk station was also  entered on September 6, but  nothing was taken.  Theft of gas was reported on  August 31 from the Garden Bay,  Store. A boater came in, filled up  his boat with $20 worth of gas and  left without paying.  On September 6, a boat moored  at the Jolly Roger dock was robbed  of five rods and reels, a depth  sounder and an anchor and line.  Theft was estimated at $1,000.  A Victoria man was charged  with impaired driving following a  report of hit and run received by  police from a Browning Road rest-  dent. The man was quickly apprehended and taken to the detachment for a breathalizer test.  While held by police, *he man  punched several holes in trw wall of  the office and when put into a cell,  proceeded to bash his head against  the bars of the cell. The man had to  be taken to St. Mary's for treatment of head cuts.  Our town  ASSAULT PART 14  SEXUAL ABUSE  The social services process of intervention into a discovered instance of sexual abuse is two-fold.  First, the child must be protected  from further trauma and recurrence must be prevented. Second,  the child and the family must be  protected from the community  response which may further  traumatize.  Depending on the age of the  child, intervention should be direct  or through the parent, usually  through the mother. A decision for  medical examination must be made  if there is suspected physical injury,  venereal disease or pregnancy.  There must be open admission to  the child that, "We believe you,  and you are not to blame" for the  events. Acknowledge the child's  feeling of ambivalence, guilt, fear,  etc., towards father and towards  mother   for  not   protecting  the  child. Return the child to normal  activity as soon as possible, e.g.  school, recreation, etc.  If court process is involved,  there is a need to protect the child  from protential trauma of legal  proceedings by preparing the child  for court and ensuring privacy in  the proceedings, and to accompany  passive, dependent role by presenting medical problems and a picture of poor self-esteem as a  woman, a homemaker or wife. The  mother may have been abused or  molested as a child. Mothers have  to rerlearn new ways of more assertive behavior. The relationship between the daughter and the mother  the   child   at   every   court   ap- " must be repaired and supportive  pearance. The worker must maintain non-judgmental attitudes and  help the child to understand what  happened in simple anatomical sexual terms and help the child to vent  feelings of anger, guilt,  helplessness, pleasure, ambivalence, etc. The child may have  developed a strong affection for  the father. Therefore, the worker  must prepare the child for the  possible loss of the source of such  affection.  Next comes intervention with the  mother. A first reaction is usually  one of denial. Some mothers play a  counselling provided to work  through the mother's conflicts. If  the decision is to separate, it should  be based on a carefully worked out  decision rather than the immediate  highly emotional situation.  Next week, intervention with the  father will be discussed. Also, the  law's role in cases of sexual abuse  of children.

Our young need challenges  ".Continued from page 2  i developing characteristics that will  serve them well in other spheres.  Gibbon's concept uses the usual  12 years of schooling devided into  three blocks. The first four years  are called the incoming block, the  second the developing block and  the third the outgoing block.  Within each of these the student  is exposed to four basic modes of  teaching and learning experiences:  directed, assigned, self-directed  and open. For example in the incoming block and using the  directed mode the teacher would  introduce new areas of study appropriate to the student's level of  interest and maturity.  In the assigned mode the teachei  would begin by presenting choices  among developed activities and  gradually move toward self-  directed activities necessitating  more student planning. Finally, using the open mode, students plan  brief, self-directed acts, using short  contracts that simply state what  they want to do and how they will  doit.  . These four modes are used on an  ongoing basis, perhaps daily in all  12 years of schooling. As the  students mature they increase the  scope and complexity of their involvement becoming more responsible for their own learning  through goal setting, self-  management, self-evaluation and  review���all skills equally appropriate in the years after school.  Over 150 schools, most ot tnem  in the U.S. have adopted all or part  of the Challenge Education concept as developed by Dr. Gibbons.  The key principle for the success of  the concept lies in constructing a  line of positive support for the program.  Self-directed education cannot  exist where curriculum, textbooks  and tests are prescribed. Schools  working with such a concept would  need greater autonomy over their  program and greater control of  financial expenditures. This would,  be balanced by a shift toward  greater participation by parents  and other members of the community both in the workings and  administration of school life.  The concept of Challenge  Education may seem somewhat  like a pipedream requiring too  many changes to be feasible. But  this is not so! Is it not realistic and  practical to create a schooling experience which will truly help our  children find themselves and their  place in the complexities of today's  world?  Dr. Gibbons summarizes nis  beliefs, "Somewhere, for each of  us, there is an unforgettable, inspiring experience or pattern of experiences that open to us the best  that we are or might be. This concept (Challenge Education) is  designed to give students and  teachers wider opportunities to  seek such peak learning even is and  to find them."  32.

Hydro is  reminding everyone concerned of  the dangers.  There have been several incidents this year when cranes and  pumper trucks contacted overhead  lines. As a result operators were injured and hydro customers have  been left without power.  Machinery striking lines is not  the only problem. In one case,  workmen installing a gutter on a  building allowed it to touch an  energized conductor. One of the  men fell, injuring his back as well  as suffering severe burns to his  hand.  "Incidents like this happen when  people neglect accepted safety procedures and Workers' Compensation Board regulations," says  Erich Hensch, District Manager,  Sechelt.  Whenever there is a possibility of  equipment coming within 10 feet  of an overhead conductor,' the  regulations specify that the contractor find out the voltage and the  minimum clearance required and  then maintain that safety margin.  If the clearance cannot be maintained because of work circumstances, Hydro must be  notified before work starts.  "In the event of machinery contacting a power line, the operator  should stay in or on the vehicle,  warn others to keep away and have  somebody call Hydro immediately," says Hensch.

Public Works chairman Graham  Craig has received quotes from  B.A. Blacktop for several paving  jobs throughout the village. To be  considered are the following: paving the north end of Inlet Avenue  up to Capilano College, quoted  cost $9,316. This project would require the acquisition of road  allowances from several private  properties fronting the street; paving a hole and bad spot on Reef  Road, quoted price $1,710 for 171  square yards of paving. Village  labour would be used for excavation and filling the area prior to  paving; paving a section of Trail  Avenue near the access road to the  sewage treatment plant, quoted  cost $3,345. Council commented  on a problem with cross-:ditching in  the area; paving and curbing  Salmon Drive to control a drainage  and run-off problem, quoted price  $1,580. Installation of culverts and  drainage ditching would cost  another $861.  Finance chairman Ann Pressley  suggested council consider these  projects at the September 26  meeting, at which she will present a  complete financial report.  Matters recreational focused on  the arena and Kinikinnick Park.  Arena committee chairman  Graham Craig announced that all  of the interior painting and some  of the exterior painting at the arena  has been completed, and an expert  is expected to examine the new  concrete floor to make recommen  dations on the problem of  discolouration. Ice maker Frank  Ketter will begin making ice  around September 25, and the job  will now take only five days. A  "Free Heat" system will then be  installed.  Arena administration manager  Vicky Speck has agreed to assume  the position year round now that  the arena will be available for summer activities, and a job description for the position has been  prepared and approved by the  arena commmittee. In recognition  of the present uncertain demands  which will be placed upon the job  during the summer months, the  $19,000 salary will be reviewed if  activities at the arena increase.  Alderman Ken Short expressed  his "disappointment, to say the  least," at the lack of community  response to the work bee weekend  held to clean up debris in Kinnikinnick Park. The park has been completely ditched, the centre access  road is in, the playing fields are  basically level but there is "a ton of  wood in little pieces" under the  surface. Machine raking will only  bury the wood on top by bringing  up the bits underneath, so "the  area needs to be hand-picked",  said Short.  A Katimavik group has offered  to  take  several  days  off their  regular projects to help with the  easy but time consuming job, and  Alderman Short will be aji-  proaching various service clubs and  groups to solicit their assistance as  well. He will also be applying to Jhe  Katimavik program to have Kiri"-  nikinnick Park as one of their pro;  jects next year.   ��� MM  Council also recognized that  "the shape of things to come" will  be to have the arena and parks  committee merge to make One  package called "Parks and Recreation". M-  Sechelt stop signs  Sechelt council has given approval for the erection of several  new stop signs at various locations  in the village, and has also decided  to remove a rope barricade across  Trident Avenue.  A recommendation from the  works superintendent suggested  stop signs at the following locations: one at each end of Surf Circle where it joins Trail Avenue; one  on the east side of Ebbtide (the  road to the sewage treatment plant)  at Trail Avenue; one on Gale  Avenue at Lookout.  In further discussion, council  also felt the need for a stop sign on  Lookout at Harbour Way for  southbound traffic.  Having received several complaints about the recently erected  rope across already barricaded Tri  dent Avenue, council decided that  the safety factor was more crucial  than the nuisance factor, and will  have the rope removed.  The rope was put up to prevent  motorcyclists from continuing to  use the road after posts were installed to prevent .vehicular traffic  from using the residential street as  a through road to Porpoise Bay.  However, several pedestrians  have expressed concern over having to go close to bushes when going around the barricade at night,  and project that in winter  pedestrians will be forced to walk  through mud or even snowbanks.  In view of these concerns, council decided to have the rope removed and to erect instead a sign  stating "No vehicular traffic".  Let's  go to the  movies, at  home!  LARGEST  MOVIE  SELECTION!
