'������ -t-ranBumside photo  Two reports from the Sunshine  Coast Economic Development  Commission occupied Gibsons  town council at their September 18  meeting. The reports were made by  Alderman John Burnside on behalf  of Alderman Ron Neilson who had  been unable to attend the full  meeting of the Economic Development Commission held the day  before.  Alderman Burnside reported  that the two main areas of discussion at the ECD meeting concerned  the relationship between the Ex-  pOasis/Tourist Association Committee and the ECD and the future  of the Economic Development  Commissioner's office.  Earlier this year the Ex-  pOasis/Tourist Committee had  been assured that there was money  in the Economic Development  Commission budget to hire a coordinator for their purposes. To  date, the committee has not  prepared a budget for the Commission's consideration and some of  the funds set aside are now being  used for other purposes, including  preparation of an economic  development strategy crucial to the  existence of the Commission itself.  Alderman Burnside reported  that after a lengthy discussion it  was decided mat tnfcDC chairman,  :Russell Crum, would write to the  iExpOasis/Tourist Association  ���committee stressing that no public  funds can be released without a  ���detailed budgeting plan.  The future of the Economic  Development Commission is coming into question, Alderman Burnside reminded council, because  starting next spring the Economic  Development Commissioner's office must be 100 per cent funded  locally.  Relevant to this decision, said  Alderman Burnside, was a report  from the new chairman of the Sunshine Coast Employment Development Society (SCEDS) that funding was confidently anticipated  from the federal government next  month, according to SCEDS chairman Barry Wilbee, which would  enable preparation of an economic  strategy study.  "Certainly, the members of the  Economic Development Commission feel the office of the  Economic Development Commissioner should continue," Burnside  told council. "They feel that the  groundwork has been laid for some  worthwhile progress in planning  for economic development on the  Sunshine Coast."  The 1984 convention of the  MUnion of British Columbia  Municipalities held in Vancouver  last weekend took as its theme  COMMUNITY and anyone in attendance expecting fireworks or  government bashing must have  been disappointed.

"It is the  process as it now exists which is  causing the problems," said Skelly.  "We cannot come together in this  province as long as all of the power  is in effect concentrated in the  hands of one man, the premier."  Skelly said that an NDP government under his leadership would  move to involve more of the public  and the legislature in the decisionmaking process and would return  decision-making powers to the  local governments which have been  increasingly centralized in the past  few years.  previous-conventions  attended.  jiad-  Correction  Some wrong impressions were left as a result of errors in the  cutline under the picture involving donations made by the Royal  Canadian Legion, Branch #140 Sechelt, in last week's paper.

M     _  From the ridge above the school  one can see the magnificent snow-  covered ranges whose peaks rise to  more than 6,000 metres along India's northern border with Tibet.  Looking below one sees the Doon  Valley, .through which run the  Ganges River. The nearest city is  Dehra Dim, 37 kilometres down  the mountain. It is 85 miles "by  crow" to China.  Woodstock is an English  'medium' school offering elementary and a broad range of high  school classes, even some college  level courses, to a school population of 450, averaging one-third  from North America, one-third  . from the Indian sub-continent and  one-third from other countries  around the world. Built in 1854  and now co-educational, it was  originally predominantly a' girls'  school. Even today girls receive no  Higher than a grade nine education  in the neighbouring countries of  Saudi Arabia and Nepal.

''pur family has always travelled a  lot," said Leslie, "and we'd like  Lars to develop an international  outlook and a tolerance of other  people."  LARS GUIGNARD  Lars' entertaining and jam-  packed letters home indicate that  he is already developing a keen  sense of observation and an appreciation for his new environs. He  was initiated into this new community by arriving on July 24 in a  monsoon rain which completely  drenched his backpack of belongings on top of the bus. The humidity was so high "it's like living inside a cloud", he wrote, and noted  that he sometimes looks put on  giant cumulus clouds at eye level.  The altitude seems not to bother  Lars, who sprints the 150 metres up  the mountainside from the dorms  to the classrooms each day. He  rises early, at 4 or 5 a.m., runs for  an hour most mornings, and is  already representing his school in  cross-country meets. (He finished  first among students and eighth  overall in his first run, the 1984  April Fools' Day Run from Gibsons to Sechelt.) He has already  done some trekking (backpacking)  trips into the mountains nearby,  and will take part in a five-week  "Winter Tour" trek around the  entire sub-continent during the  winter break. The school year runs  from late July until the third week  in June with a six-week break between the two semesters.  A student in grade 10, Lars is  studying an academic program including biology, chemistry, English,  French, math, physical education  and health, Indian history and Hindi, which he switched tp from a  piano class. Students have eight  40-minute periods during the day,  and there is a class in each subject  each day.

Chrismas lights up  by Fran Burnside  Carl Chrismas was literally  blasted out of bed last Friday,  night when lightning and its accompanying thunderbolt slammed  into his 20-foot travel trailer in  Porpoise Estates, blowing the plug  through which his electricity was  connected clear out of the trailer's  exterior wall, and frying the wires  in telphone and electrical lines.  Carl had been listening to continuously rumbling thunder when  the bolt struck, throwing him a  foot into the air. At the same time  the intense concussion of the blast  -"It felt like an explosion inside my  head" - gave him an instant and  pounding headache. He thought  the tree beside him might have  been struck, and hunkered lower  into his sleeping bag, waiting for  the tree to come crashing through  the roof;  It didn't, but. several heavy water  soaked two by 12 planks outside  went dancing around, spraying a  sheet of mud against the wall of the  trailer as the bolt found a way out  through a metal downspout and,  blowing it apart, slammed into the  planks beside it and disappeared.  Inside there was no need to guess  what the burning smell of sulphur  was.  "That's fire and brimstone,"  Carl chuckled and shook his head,  but he couldn't figure out exactly  where the odour came from, that  permeated the whole trailer.  Needless to say, the power was  out; in the light of morning Carl  learned why.  The cord -running to a  neighbour's house for power  -which is what Carl believes the  lightning struck - was blown out of  his trailer, its wires and the insides  of the plug melted together. All the  breakers in the house were thrown.  The concussion of the strike even  blew out the pilot lights of his propane stove, fridge and heater.  The telephone sitting 18 inches  from Carl's head was fried. It's  cord had been against a metal window frame, and all the insulation  along an eight inch section was  completely burnt off, with wires in  both   the  cord  and  the  phone  melted together. The phone jack  was burnt all the way through  Through the throbbing of his  headache a sobering thought occurred to Carl. If the wires of the  telephone 18 inches away had;  melted, what might have happened  to the delicate workings of his  pacemaker? He is to keep away  from spark plugs and things electrical which might throw off its  rhythm.  Though the adrenalin was pumping, Carl searched for this pulse,-,  found the beat and - relief! There it  was, thumping away at the required 70 beats per minute. Apparently through all the electricity  raging about him, Carl's  pacemaker had emerged unscathed.  Carl, a long-time logger and  woodsman, has suffered a goodly  share of the wounds and accidents  such occupations inflict. He's seen  lightning hit before, but never  quite so close to home. One  assumes he can now sit back and  relax, trusting in the old adage,  "Lightning never strikes the same  place twice."

The way  forward  Columnist Marjorie Nichols of the Vancouver Sun was struck  by the atmosphere of peace and tranquillity at the Union ol  British Columbia Municipalities convention held in Vancouver  last week. She concluded it was because all of the municipal  leaders present with the exception of Vancouver were Socreds  and therefore tongue-tied when it came to criticism of the provincial government, which apparently is one of the main exercises when local elected officials gather.  It seemed to one observer contemplating his first such conve-  tion that such was not the case. The convention probably  reflected roughly the same proportion of its. members supporting the government as voted it into power, just over 50 per cent.  It seemed that the seriousness of the economic times were  foremost on the minds of the gathering. A questionnaire  distributed to delegates at the start of the convention revealed a  preoccupation with the economy and the high rates of  joblessness in communities throughout B.C.  Perhaps the elected representatives of British Columbia, at  least at the municipal and regional level, realize that in such  times as now face us picking a fight out of the traditional reflex  attitudes which have made politics in B.C. infamous throughout  the country is completely inappropriate.  Certainly the theme of the conference COMMUNITY indicated a felt need for some pulling together rather than any  squaring off. This is a good sign.  It is unlikely that any change coming will be immediately ap- -  parent. It would seem that the provincial government is as  obsessed with secrecy and applied power as ever and we can only  hope that the obsession does npt lead us into any more of the  confrontation that we saw last year. If the rest of the province  begins to clamour for less secrecy and more co-operation this  poll-conscious government may traipse along after popular opinion.  We share the conviction enunciated at the UBCM convention  by Opposition Leader Bob Skelly that the path forward lies in  less centralized control. If the Socreds continue to try to bully us  in directions of their devising solely, confrontation will come. If  they open up the business of governing for the input of the opposition and other elected leaders in the province they can yet be  the focal point of the kind of movement of consensus that the  problems that beset us seem to demand!  5 YEARS AGO  Indignant mothers in Port  Mellon held their children out  of school in protest against  the service provided by jocal  schoofowiAlleg^  sible behavior pr?Jhkpart ot;..  the school bus driver led to  the action.

Thoughts on Papal visit  Our need for heroes  by Michael Burns  Well he's gone; the somewhat  portly, tall and imposing personage  who is Korol Wojtyla, better  known as Pope John Paul II,  primate of Poland and head of the  Roman Catholic Church; an individual whose presence'among u's  has elicited a response from individuals which has been surpising  in its intensity and magnitude.  His departure left some-with a  feeling of relief that this  foolishness and fuss were finally  over and that normalcy would now  return to their lives. Others  however, were struck with a sense  of personal loss that this beloved  figurehead who had deigned to be  part of Canada for a few days was  no longer here.  It is difficult then to evaluate  fairly an individual whose very  presence can be perceived from  such opposed viewpoints. It is important however to examine some  aspects of what occurred.  The events surrounding the  papal visit were carried out in the  best traditions of medieval splendor with all the pomp, ceremony,  colorful and luxurious attire befitting an earthly king. The glitter, of  pageantry and the tinsel of artificial and temporarily created  .regalia were constant backdrops to  the pope's appearances.  Is this the proper setting for a  man purported to be a spiritual  leader? If it is, what does that say  about his followers?  As an individual John Paul II  has been courageous and determined in his attempts to guide a  . revitalized Christianity based on  traditional and basic beliefs. He  has continued to tread the delicate  path between spiritual leader and  political force, first and foremost  over PolandMand then indirectly  with other world events, Presenting  himself as a spiritual leader who  transcends racial, geographical and  theological boundaries, he holds  firm paradoxically to ultra traditional pronouncements on issues of  abortion, birth control, celibacy of  priests, and the role of women in  the church, while making  enlightened statements on questions of peace, armaments, social  justice and human dignity.  The dichotomy of his character  is paralleled even further by the  position of the papacy and the  church itself which attempts to offer paths to spiritual awakenings  and strengthenings while encumbered with temporal trappings  making it the richest and most  politically powerful Christian  church.  One can argue that it is intrinsic  to the very nature of humanity that  it endows its deities and churches  with what is considered most  valuable from a materialistic point  of view. Consider the great  cathedrals of the Middle  Ages���arising in gold gilded splendor to tower majestically over the  poverty of the surrounding peasantry.  ; But is that not truly a second  rate and immature way of showing  love and concern? Shouldn't that  approach be avoided in all human  undertakings, especially those attempting . to lead to spiritual  growth?  .1 find, it difficult to take seriously  the spiritual callings of a man'arid a  church which allows itself to be entrapped by worldly goods and  political and bureaucratic  machinations.  What made me most uneasy  about the papal visit was the ease  with which the public itself became '  involved with "popeamania". It is  true that the media in its customary  mindless ahd frenetic passion for  upstaging created a circus atmosphere rivaled only by the carnival barkers of our free enterprise,  mentality who took every crass opportunity to cash in.  Tyner talk  But more serious and worrisome  was the need demonstrated by the  throngs caught up in this  phenomenon to hero worship, to  place their faith in someone other  than themselves, and to believe  that in the personage of John Paul  II undue homage and reverence  were necessary.  Despite his many good  characteristics he is but a man; a  man whose stature has been hyped  and ballooned out of proportion  by a media looking for an event, by  political leaders seeking ways to  amuse and distract their constituents and most frighteningly, by  the childlike acquiescence of a  population which prefers to seek  wisdom and safety in the pronouncements and judgements of  others rather than in their own lives  and minds.  rite politicians  by James H. Tyner  In the recent election campaign  we had promises, lots of promises.  Whatever was asked, that was promised. Jobs, increased social'pro-  gams, equality of women,  aboriginal rights, etc. All were promised. Why they even promised  not to reduce the deficit.  We heard little or nothing about  the sorry state of the economy,  acid rain, our failing resources, loss  of jobs through automation, our  shrinking industrial base and our  growing national debt.  Although these matters are  urgent the politicians seemed little  concerned.  : It was interesting to see their performance on the deficit and the national debt. They said the deficit  would not be reduced at this time,  yet it would seem to me, that if  prompt and decisive action is not  taken to reduce the deficit, the national debt will become so huge  ' that it will be impossible to service  without further debasement of the  dollar, bringing with it erosion of  savings, increased strikes and  lockouts.  The politicians should be aware  that the country cannot be financed in this way and that only by increased productivity can the country hope to prosper. The politicians  should provide a climate that will  encourage the economy to produce  at full capacity and in this way they  will be able to satisfactorily finance  the cost of government, social and  cultural    programs,    grants,  patronage and the national debt.  Not only should they bring the  ; economy  to   capacity   but   they  should encourage it to expand.  Our manufacturing industry has  declined in recent years. During the  post war years the politicians seemed satisfied with the exploitation of,  Vthe natural resources and appeared  little concerned with the departure  of our manufacturers to more  hospitable countries. Now new  manufacturing plants must be encouraged by providing a better industrial climate. ,  They must know that our  natural resources will have to be  revitalized and that this will require  great effort, considerable expenditure and rigid control.  They also must know that if the  country is to meet its obligations  and fulfill expectations, the people  displaced by automation must be  employed in productive work.  The immense task of revitalizing  the natural resources, increasing  the industrial base and removing  sources of pollution will create so  much work that there should be little unemployment.  react  manners  by Maryanne West  ' ';'  A new group of participants are  settling into Katimavik House in  Gibsons, from hometowns as tar  away as Amherst, Nova Scotia and  as close as Vernon* B.C..One  hopes that when they leave at the  end of November it will be with  warm feelings generated by the appreciation of their host community  and those for whom they,have  .  worked. "?  This hasn't, unfortunately,  always been the case with the���other  Katimavik groups, not, let me  hasten to say because individuals  haven't been friendly, nor because  the schools haven't been appreciative of the work of the  Katimavik volunteers, but rather  because of the lack of formal  recognition by the city fathers.;  The group which was here during the summer, who toiled daily in  Pioneer Park, who volunteered in  schools, in the museum and for the  chamber of commerce, went home  angry and hurt because, no  representative of their four sponsors, the people for whom, they  worked, came to their good-bye  party. No-one came to say,  "Thank you, we* appreciate the  work you've done and we'll think  of you all as we enjoy the new look  of our park and museum."  Yes, it was a busy weekend with  the Sea Cavalcade but that really  isn't an excuse for such a lack of  basic good manners.  Sure, there isn't much money to  spare these days, but shouldn't the  organizations for whom these  young people work be giving them  a farewell party in the first place,  'never mind not showing up when  the kids have to throw their own  party? If we can afford $1,200 for  pins for the Cavalcade Queen to  give to her fellow participants in  the Miss PNE Contest, surely the  least we could do for these visitors  who have worked for us would be a  potluck supper before they leave.  It's done by other communities  smaller than ours.  We're not off to a very good  start either, with this present  group.

These young people are in a very  real sense.representing their home  communities and they will return  to those communities across  Canada with the impressions they  have gained from their stay with  us. They are not asking for, nor  would they want special diplomatic  status; only to be accepted warmly  into the community and treated as  members of the family. We're not  rude and inconsiderate people. We  care for and help each other and  it's customary in Gibsons to make  newcomers welcome and fori  friends* to get together to wish!  godspeed to those leaving for fur-!  ther adventures. j  "I know we pride ourselves on our;  informality and laid back way of!  life, but it doesn't usually run toj  such indifference and one is forced!  to ask, because that's the way it!  must look to the Katimavikers, if-  our unwillingness to exert ourselves  is because they are teenagers. '  These young people do not come  to us empty handed, they bring em  thusiasm, friendliness, the ex!  perience of growing up in othe"  communities, a variety of talents  and ethnic backgrounds, a will*  ingness to learn and try new things  and that special joy in living which*  is the privilege of the young ir|  spirit.

From what I can see we got.a  new marina, with moorage rates  only the rich can afford. We got a  boat launch where we have to pay  every time we use it, and which is  impractical for commercial use.  We had a free boat launch before  at a better location. We got a pay  parking lot on waterfront property  provided by the town. We.lost the  use of a good portion of the beach  because of dredging. We got an  agreement that give the operators  of the marina the. first $200,000 of  ; yearly revenue after which they pay  15 per cent rent or lease to the  town.  We didn't get the hundreds, of  jobs from the building and opera  tion of the hotel. Jon McRae announced cancellation of the hotel  construction only days after the  agreement was signed.  The bottom line is that a couple  of fast talking developers have  gained a nice source of income,  providing moorage for rich people,  most from Vancouver, at the expense of the people of Gibsons and  taxpayers in general.  The former mayor and alderman  who worked out this agreement  should be held responsible.  Hans Penner  Gibsons, B.C.  Company questions regional takeovers  ~ Editor:  ��'!- For the past 12 years Aero Purification Services Ltd. has been sell-  v"ing and servicing sewage treatment  "r'plants on the Sunshine Coast.  ^These treatment plants range in  :;,size from the household unit to the  ^large commercial plant and are  manufactured in North Vancouver  "���by Northern Purification Services  "Ltd. We carry a large inventory of  '''pumps, tools and testing equip-  ^'ment for the service and  "'maintenance of these plants. At  ''present Aero Purification Services  ir'Ltd. is servicing 75 units on the  'coast ranging from the single  -'dwelling unit to the large commer  cial plant.  In 1982 the service of two commercial plants, Lynwood Court  and Creekside, previously maintained by Aero Purification Services Ltd., was taken over by the  Sunshine Coast Regional District.  At this time we submitted a letter  to the SCRD recommending that  the monthly service of these two  plants continue to be contracted to  us for a fee of $1,056 per year for  Lynwood Court and $1,176 per  year for Creekside.  Our records show that total cost  of service and repairs for the treatment plant at Lynwood Court for  the five year period, January 29,  1977 to October 31, 1982, was  $10,094.71. For the Creekside unit  costs for the three year period,  April 5, 1979 to October 31, 1982  were $4,316.38. These costs do not  include B.C. Hydro charges. In  comparison, in only two years, the  SCRD has overspent their budget  by $10,000 and increased sewer  charges for the 41 residents from  $75 to $326 per year, an increase of  over 400 per cent. The cost  economics of Aero's service to the  community are attractive and  definitely as a private business  lower than the SCRD rates.  At the present time there is a  threat from the SCRD to take over  three more commercial plants  presently serviced by Aero. As this  company is our livelihood, any further loss of contracts to the SCRD  not only threatens our business,  but also our means of supporting a  family on the Sunshine Coast.  Mrs. Leigh E.

Kifiseitien need your donations  ,i Editor:  \-   Your local Kinsmen Club has  '.t undertaken an enormous task to  raise funds and purchase a "Car-  , diac Defibrillator Monitor" (heart  monitor) for our local medical  .clinic. This unit is a more compact  ".model but comparable in efficiency'  to the one used by our medical  (iStaff in the emergency department  ,!of St. Mary's Hospital.  ., Because of the distance from the  ,,hospital and the need to provide  ^immediate and life saving care  vfrom electrocution and acute  , cardiac-respiratory emergencies,  .the Kinsmen Club has adopted this  project as a major service project  for the Kin year 1984-85. In addition to our on-going service committments to the community - in  and around Gibsons, the Kinsmen  Club needs to raise in excess of  $9,000 to purchase this vital piece  of equipment.  The club has and will be conducting service projects during the  coming year to meet our obligations. With two successful food  concessions at Brothers Park during the summer, we have raised our  first $1,500. Our next project is our  Kin-Vegas Night, October 19 and  we sincerely hope the citizens of  Gibsons and district will support  this and other projects, as they  have supported the Kinsmen Club  of Gibsons for the past 35-plus  years.  Those wishing to make direct  donations may do so by sending  their cheques to the club at Box 22,  : Gibsons.

George in Gibsons  Beautiful wedding  by George Cooper  DOUBLE RING CEREMONY  On Saturday, September 1, in  the marine setting of the Hopkins  Landing promenade, wedding  vows were exchanged by Nadene  Louise Smethurst and Roland Im-  hof.  Friends and relatives gathered  beneath the venerable Dogwood to  witness the double ring ceremony.  The bride, dressed in the long  white satin gown that her mother  had worn at her own wedding, carried a bouquet of pink roses and  white stephanotis. She was  escorted by her father, David  Smethurst, a science teacher at  Elphinstone, and attended by her  maid of honour, Cathy Cooke,  and her flower girls, Lisa and Tina  Wright.  Nadene, who did all her schooling here in Langdale elementary  and Elphinstone secondary, has,  since her graduation in 1980 been  employed by the Bank of Com  merce in North Vancouver. The  groom is employed by Highland  Helicopters of Vancouver. Following their wedding trip, a sailing  cruise in local waters, the couple  ! will take up residence in North  Vancouver.  The wedding reception was held  in the garden of Dr. Janet Webb  who proposed a delightful toast to  the bride. The ceremony was performed by marriage commissioner,  Dawn Devlin, and the music was  provided by organist, Nancy  Miller.  David and Joyce Smethurst wish  to express their thanks to all the  friends who assisted at the wedding  by echoing the words of the best  man, Bob Goodman, "Such warm  friendly people here���just wonderful."

A memorial service was held in  St. Bartholomew's Church in Gib-  : sons on Saturday, July 14 at 1  ; p.m., with Reverend Godkin of-  ; ficiating. Cremation was at Ball's  Chapel, North Vancouver.  Mrs. Barnes was born May 31,  1891, in Northhampton England.  'She imigrated to Canada with her  ' mother, father, three sisters and  one brother, arriving in Saskatoon,  Saskatchewan in 1907, where she  met and married Arthur Barnes in  1909.  The couple moved out to Vancouver in 1911, lived in Port Alberni and then Princeton before settl  ing in Gibsons in 1918. There Mrs.  Barnes lived for the past <56 years,  62 of those residing at 1765  Highway 101. At 89 years young  she sold the family home and moved into the Kiwanis Care Home as  one of its first occupants.  Mrs. Barnes and her husband  had a family of seven girls and one  son. They had the pleasure of  celebrating their fiftieth anniversary together with their family in  april, 1959.  Granny was predeceased by her  husband on May 25,1962, and also  by six of her daughters. She is survived by one son, Robert, of Lone  Butte B.C.; a daughter, Hilda De  Lunhur of Williams Lake, B.C.; a  grandson, John Barnes of Victoria,  who she raised as a son from the  age of two; and also by nine grandchildren, 16 great grandchildren  and four great-great grandchildren.  Mrs. Barnes was a member of  the Royal Canadian Legion Auxiliary Branch 109 of Gibsons for 36  years, and was presented a life  membership pin in 1965.  ' Though she suffered many heartaches she remained cheerful. Her  door was always open to family  and many friends. She loved to  cook, bake, knit and sew and loved  a game of cards.  Granny Barnes will be sadly  missed and fondly remembered by  the many who knew and loved her.

While I respect alderman  Edney's opinion and, usually,  agree with him, I must disagree  with any claim that there is ample,  affordable, suitable housing in  Gibsons for families with low incomes.  Gibsons Housing Co-operative,  of which I am secretary, established guidelines in line with those of  CMHC and prepared a report on  the housing situation in Gibsons  last spring and submitted it to  CMHC's Mr. Nickland.  In our report on the existing  housing situation at that time, we  used the Coast News classified  advertising, March/April, as a base  and researched each advertisement  ignoring those which were obviously unsuitable/such as those that  refused children, had only one  bedroom, were expensive (over  $375 per month), and were  noticeably substandard. Terence  Neill, president, Reverend Alex  Reid, vice-president, Diane Strom,  treasurer and myself spent many  hours investigating.  Terry Neill and myself checked  and double-checked each dwelling  that was not rented previously, or  immediately after publishing, and  found that there was only one  dwelling that was available, affordable, and suitable for family  housing and even that one had  changed hands so frequently that  we investigated and found that  previous tenants were obliged to  leave because it was too cold.  We were strongly tempted to bring along a camera and give a  visual display of uninhabitable  dwellings along the waterfront and  elsewhere, but felt that it would be  too demeaning for the present  tenants.  In the September 17 Coast  News, there were 51 advertisements  under classified ads "26. For  Rent". Not all of these "For  Rent" pertain to housing.  Therefore, I invite readers to place  an X through those not pertaining  to housing - eight; as well as those  refusing children - 10; winter only  -two; one bedroom -10; over $400  per month - three.  You will find that there are 18  dwellings that are in the affordable  bracket. Whether or not they are  available or suitable requires further investigation. It looks pretty  good���if we were foolish enough  to assume that all 18 places were  sitting there empty, with no "For  Sale" sign out front; are not poorly  converted basements with no  privacy; or are hot located on the  edge of a highway with no fence to  protect > small children from  danger.  As there is always a turnover in  rental housing, I would be very  much surprised if any suitable, affordable, dwelling remained empty  for even one month. Certainly, Bill  Edney's did not, and little has  changed since spring. There are  few housing starts, very little  restructuring of ancient houses and  there have been fires.  Alderman Edney received a copy  of our report, which included the  45-plus substandard houses in Gibsons. I would ask alderman Edney  what he would do if these 45 dwellings were condemned, as they  should be? Does he think that Gib  sons could provide affordable,  suitable, housing for these present  tenants?  If I seem to be very steamed  about this matter, I can only say  that I find it unfortunate that,  because of a statememt made by a  leading member of this community, needy families might be deprived of suitable, affordable housing.  * Drop off your ^  COAST NEWS  CLASSIFIEDS  at  Adv��ntur�� Electronics  in Gibsons  until noon Saturday  ^        "A Frlandly Paopla ��fac��"       >  Quality, used lumber, bricks, windows, lights, plumbing, etc.  ff�� & B USEiD BUGLDIftSG IMAT03BAL.S  11947 Tannery Rd, Surrey  MdNOAV-SATURDAV .-.>'   see-*311  We also buy used building materials  NOTICE  Town of Gibsons  1984-1985  List off Electors  COURT OF REVISION  -tow*  Take notice that the local Court of Revision wil!  sit, to revise and correct the 1983 -1984 List of  Electors for the Town of Gibsons, at the Municipal  Hall, 1490 South Fletcher Road, Gibsons, B.C., at  9:00 a.m. on Monday, October 1,1984, and shall  continue to sit, if required, from day to day until  the list has been corrected and revised.

She  said the public turnout at the recent appeal by Iris Griffith, from  Egmont, was most impressive and  they are raising money to go to as  many more hearings as possible in  the hope that it will have some effect.  One of the problems is that they  can only apply to have a spraying  permit withdrawn after it has been  issued. They are supporting the  Environmental Law Society's attempt to have the procedure changed so that the application for a permit can be appealed.

Pender People 'n' Places  ���Jane McOuat pholo  Community plans activities  ]:    by Jane McOuat, 883-9342  I \ Now that all the kids are back in  '. school and the ensuing flurry of ac-  ; tivity that accompanies that opera-  . tion has died down, it's time again  ��� Tor the community to plan its fall  ��� and   winter  activities.   It   seems  ��� that's exactly what's been going  'on.  Last Sunday was the Terry Fox  ' Participation Event and next year  ���there'll be even more folks par-  ��� 'ticipating. A very special commen-  ��� dation should go to Darlene Lajlar  who worked so hard to put the day  ', together. It's people who give just  : a bit more who help make "a bit  more" happen.  ; GOLF COURSE  "   The same could be said for all  ��� ;the folks planning and working on  ', the new golf course. They just keep  pushing and trying and in the end  -we will see more grants and even  more   progress   taking   place.  "Already I can actually see a fairway.  To give the project a boost and  let the community see the progress  first hand there will be a Burning  Party on Saturday, September 29  (Happy Birthday Dad!). This will  be weather permitting, bring your  neighbours and a lunch and spend  the day.  FIREMEN'S BALL  Still on the topic of fire. It's  coming time for the annual  Fireman's Ball. Saturday, October  13, is the date and fire hour will  begin at 6:30 p.m. Tickets for the  delicious baron of beef dinner are  $12.50 and Pegasus will provide  the dancing music.  FITNESS PROGRAMS  If the Aquatic Centre doesn't  have a fitness program with the  right time slot for you, it's possible  that Continuing Ed does. Fitness  and body toning for all ages and  sizes takes place at the Madeira  Park elementary school gym Tuesday and Thursdays from 7 to 8  p.m. This is a casual class and for  more information call 885-4626.

I'm sure  many folks wondered exactly what  Nancy was pounding the streets so  diligently for. She wanted to enter  a marathon (26 miles). Two  weekends ago Nancy participated  in the Royal Victoria Marathon.  Out of 632 runners of every age  group Nancy placed 355th. Her  time was three hours 53 minutes  and 41 seconds. Look on the sports  page for details but Nancy deserve  congratulations and certainly has  my admiration for such a feat.  If your athletic prowess doesn't  extend quite that far then you  might enjoy knowing that you can  take the whole family for a canoe  or  paddleboat  ride  up  on  the  lagoon at Ruby Lake. Then after  you've worked off a little energy in  the setting sun head in and have  dinner.  I never have a problem Figuring  out a nice way to eat and stay  healthy at the same time. Lots of  people think I like to exercise.  They've got it wrong. I like to eat  and I like to dance, therefore, I exercise so I can do both.  SINGERS  The Pender Community Choir is  looking for new members  meet Thursday evenings at 7:30  p.m. in the basement of St. Andrews Church. Also, they'd like  ideas for some new types of music.  VANDALISM  I wish that those responsible for  breaking windows and general vandalism around Madeira Park had  something they actually would  rather do than break windows.  How can you ever run out of things  to do up here?  If all else fails you could push  weights instead of throwing rocks.  BIRTHDAYS  Oh yes, besides my Dad (mush  mush) it was a big birthday for Liz  Beadle and Terri Drummell. Two  Reserving and industrious women.  by Ann Cook, 883-9167  First day of fall arrived loud and  wet, thunder, lightning, wind and  rain last night. I was sure by morning the float would have broken up  and blown away. This morning the  sun is shining. The only sign of so  much weather is the rowboat near  sunk from filling with rain water  and the rain barrell filling nicely  and getting ready for business.  Now summer's over, the summer visitors are gone, and the axe  handle is broken.  FISHERFOLK  More women seem to go north  with the commercial fishermen  each year. I don't think it's for the  money becuase I don't see any of  the fishermen spending money like  drunken sailors. I know I'm going  to be asked, "What women?".  Recognize these: Betty, Elvida,  Julie, Iris, Gaye, Kay, Lynn, Debbie, Maureen and Elaine? Maybe  some of them just went for moral  support but I'll bet there are very  few commercial fishermen who  would refuse moral support that  bakes cookies to boot.  THRIFT STORE  The Thrift Store is upstairs in  the community hall once again.  Thank you Darryl Jeffries who  seems to show up willing and able  whenever we need muscle work  done. Store hours are Wednesday,  Saturday and Sunday, noon to 3  p.m. If you haven't done your spring cleaning do it now. The Thrift  Store needs donations to start  anew upstairs.

Pat Murphy,  area "B" director and Doug Roy  will, speak on events they have  recently been'concerned with.  There is a proposed constitution  change; "Resolved that item lof  the constitution he changed to  read; - The name of the Association is Area "B" Ratepayers Halfmoon Bay Association."  The reason for the proposed  change is that through the years  there has been minimal participation from West Sechelt at the one  annual general meeting each year.  This will free West Sechelt to form  their own association. The merits  of one encompassing unit as opposed to two in one area is cause  for thought.  At present all registered property  owners in area "B" are eligible for  membership on payment of an annual fee of $2 plus $1 for spouse.  This may be paid prior to the  meeting on October 5. The hall will  be open at 7 p.m. for this purpose.  Further information may be hacT  by calling the secretary, Carol  Kozij 885-9276.

You will hear the Hams, the  Sixty-Niners, the children's groups  of the Mini Mob and the quartette  known as the G.G.'s.

WRITERS POST MORTEM  The Suncoast Writers' Forge  group held their first meeting since  the Festival of the Written Arts last  August. Reports were given by the  members of the organizaing committee. Betty Keller read the many  letters of appreciation from the  speakers who attended and all were  ecstatic in their praise of the success of the whole affair.  Thank to a very hard working  group of members the festival was  an outstanding success which attracted people from near and far  who enjoyed the hospitality extended to them. It would be nice to  be able to report that the festival  was just as outstanding financially,  but the membership will-be striving  hard to catch up with the bills  which must be paid for such an  ambitious event.

Don't even consider planting one.  Fruit trees have this awful habit of over-producing. When  one has embarrassed one's neighbours and friends with  one's largesse, one is still faced with boxes of whatever  wretched fruit is in season. At this time of the year it happens to be pears. I can't seem to walk through the yard  without the tree tossing one at my feet or having a crow  drop one on my head. Over the years I've collected a couple  of recipes���here's a selection.  Pear Jam  6 cups prepared pears  4 cups sugar  I lemon  Chop the pears coarsely. Place in a bowl with the sugar.  Cover and leave at room temperature for 24 hours.  Boil the mixture rapidly for 30 minutes, stirring frequently  then add the grated lemon rind.  *}���>, ���^40<���R.  Continue boiling and stirring for another 25 minutes then  add the lemon juice. Boil for another 5 minutes or until the  jam has reached setting point. Unripe pears take a shorter  time than ripe pears but I like to use a mixutre of ripe and  unripe. When setting point has been reached pour into hot  jars and seal.  Ginger Pears  Peel,.core and slice the pears thinly. To every  2 cups of pears add  Vz cup off sugar  2 thin slices off ginger root  Juice off Vz lemon  let stand overnight.  Place the mixture in a saucepan and heat to boiling point.  Boil the pears until they turn an amber colour���between 5 to  10 minutes depending on how ripe they are. Stir while this is  happening but try not to break the pears up. Remoye from  heat and allow to cool. Serve really cold.  Pear Chutney  4 cups chopped pears  1 cup chopped onion  1 hot red pepper, finely chopped - optional  V* cup dark brown sugar  1 cup water  1 V_ teaspoon ground ginger  V_ teaspoon ground cinnamon  V* teaspoon cayenne  1 tablespoon salt  4 cups vinegar  1 cup corn syrup  Simmer all the vegetables in the water for 20 minutes.  Add everything else and simmer for a couple of hours. Stirring occasionally until you get a thick consistency. Pour into  hot jars and seal. Keep for at least 3 months before eating.

SHCP TALK Time for Change  CommllNITY was the theme for the 1984 (81st) UBCM  Convention that' we attended these past few ' days, - The  theme was presented very skillfully by Mr. John Scherer, an  expert psychologist whose profession it is in industry or as a  marriage counsellor to bring about a motivation for change.  The UBCM president, Mayor Audrey Moore of Castlegar,  in her opening address set aside her prepared presidential  report to address us on the state of affairs in British Columbia today, both in terms of the economic and human relationships.  A questionnaire, entitled "Your Initial Impressions" posed questions in five major areas, which made one pause to  reflect on the state of things, causes and attitudes, and our  own willingness to personally explore new approaches to  resolving some of our economic problems and conflicts.  The lengthy workshop under the direction of Mr. Scherer  was one of those kinds of experiences that motivated us to  change, but because of its breadth of example and experience is difficult to tell about.  The breakthrough for change, so urgently needed in all  sectors of our society today is difficult to achieve, it seems,  because our goals and objectives are so diversive. So to  start with we need to set a common goal or objective in our  community and throughout the province that we can all  unite behind.  What is it, or what should it be was the question we were  asked? Being implored to set down the first thought that  came to mind, I set down these words. "Work cooperatively for the common good, avoiding constant confrontation." You might have different words to express the  same goal.  We have certain concepts of each other, or the organization we belong to, based on experience and encounter.  These concepts become so deep-seated as to make it vir  tually impossible to bring about change without daring to  explore new approaches.  The speaker reminded us that we are all descendants of  people who came from the old world, who dared to explore,  because they wanted change. We tend to be cozy in our own  little-world, blaming others for everything that happens to  us.  We all have personal goals, the question is, can we not  achieve our personal goals with the greatest ease if we  unite behind a common goal that is for the betterment of ail  mankind starting in our own family, in our community, in  our province, in our country and finally in the world.  The recent visit of His Holiness Pope John Paul II who exhorted us to love and respect one another and the entire  human race could well be the catalyst for change in  ourselves and in our community. _      _.��� _  by BUI Edney  "REALWIN"  K.LD.

The story of a mural
by Joan Huestis Foster   .
Marylou Crerar is a noted and
widely exhibited artist who divides
her time between Edmonton and
Victoria. For more years than we
care to remember she and I enjoyed many a- frenzied painting
safari carting along kids, dogs and
At one time we mentioned how
well we got on together before a
slightly pompous psychiatrist
overhearing us, made the comment, "But you're so different,
you could never work on the same
painting. No two painters can ever
work on the same painting...". As
she blundered on in the same view
Marylou and I had an immediate
thought. The absolute wa^ out, the
gauntlet was down and La Crerar
and I stopped to pick up a board
on the way home. The idea sprang
at us while stopped at an intersection and we decided to give each
other space by getting a largish
board. Four feet by eight. About
three months, three more boards
and $400 worth of paint later we
were touching up the last board of
continuous painting when another
thought struck: "Where will this
thing hang? Who's going to store
the damned thing?" so we packed
up and went our separate ways.
Colin Graham of the Victoria
Art Gallery was so enamoured of
the mural that he kept trouping out
with city fathers arid MacPherson
Playhouse people and anyone else
he could think to bring. It was
sold, it was not sold, with a great
deal of aggravating hemming and
hawing. Crerar went off to Edmonton and I moved here to the
Coast. The painting was relegated
to storage in Vancouver to be
liberated this summer after seven
years. Those interested may view
and perhaps enjoy seeing the street
of Victoria as a backdrop for Kate
Fisher's fine French food at the
Heron Restaurant in Gibsons.
At the Arts Centre
Talented artistic family
"Relative Art" the three-person
exhibition at the Arts Centre,
Sechelt, comprising work by Chris
Pratt, Nena Braathen and Michael
Pratt is entering its last week, as
the show finishes on Sunday,
September 30.
The main similarity between
these three artists who are closely
related (mother, daughter and son)
is the fact that they show a strong
romantic streak in their work. That
said, they are also three artists with
very different styles and rhythms.
"Relative Art" is the exhibition of Chris Pratt (left), son Michael
and daughter Nena Braathen, currently on display at the Arts Centre in Sechelt. -rrinBumride pholo
Nena Braathen's etchings are a
curious mixture of movement and
stillness, of flatness and limitless
depth. Her landscapes, which are
more symbols of the B.C. scene
than actual places, have a
brooding, melancholy, dreamlike
atmosphere which is emphasized
by her cool, sombre colour.
Michael Pratt shows oil paintings which range from a broad but
realistic representation of sea and
landscape to mystical abstracts
based on an emotional response to
nature. Like such artists as Lawren
Harris, he is fascinated by the
swirling rhythms of sea, mountains
and sky, abstracting these rhythms
to waves of colour in some of his
latest works.
Chris Pratt works on a smaller
scale, sometimes just in ink, ta^t
mostly with ink and acrylic. The
hot, vivid colours of Mexico
delight her and many of the works
are, decorative interpretations in
billiant colours of remembered
scenes in Mexico.

"Pitcairn Island". "I had to enter
the younger age classification of
painters aged 70 to 75 since there is

Lionel. Lionel went on to say that
in the recent four years he has
entered paintings at the PNE he
has been awarded a third and three
As with all his marine paintings,
Lionel draws on his vivid memory
for the details of ships and scenes.
"I first saw Pitcairn in 1915," he
says, "when I sailed for the New
Zealand Shipping Company, and
again in 1922 when the "SS
Kiakoura" took a cargo of
potatoes to the island."  ,
"Landing cargo there was not
easy, since there was no anchorage
and the cargo had to be transferred

Beginning the evening and interspersed throughout the program  were the sensitive and evocative  dance interpretations of 14-year  old Rachel Poirier. With a  beautifully expressive and emotional face adding to the message  of her movements, Rachel had this  reviewer choking back tears well  before the end of her first number,  "Memories".  Rachel's versatility ran the  gamut of movement from soft and  flowing to angular and mechanical,  as witnessed in her final dance of  the evening, and it was an unexpected and much appreciated  delight to see such a talented and  lovely young lady perform.  Gordon Wilson brought  naturalist/conservationist Ernest  Thompson Seton back to life with  a convincing rendition of excerpts  from the two person show "Seton  versus Seton", he recently  presented at the Festival of the  Written Arts with Judith Wilson.  Gordon convincingly portrayed  both the logical and scientific  nature and the passionate determination of the man who loved all  of nature and wanted to both  record and preserve it for posterity.  Making her writing and directing  debut was Suncoast member  Shelley Nowazek, whose vignette  "A Sawbuck and a Fin" was  engagingly performed by sister  Sandie Decker and Patrick  Thompson. With dialogue coming  unexpectedly in rhyming couplets,  the lightness and humour of the  piece was immediately apparent,  and the cast did an admirable job  of the difficult task of keeping the  rhythm of the dialogue as natural  as possible. Delays in stage setting  and some slowness in pace were  barely noticeable.  A last minute addition to the  program was the comic antics of  David Karmazyn and Chris Car-  row, who broke the audience up  with their "on the make" and  "mugging" skits. It's great to have  a Karmazynian presence back on  Suncoast Players are to be congratulated on their first evening1 of  the season. We must only wait until mid-October for their next of-  local stages after David and  brother Alan spent a highly successful summer performing in  Barkerville. One local man who  had seen their Barkerville show was  heard to comment that the drive all  that way would have been worth it  just for the show alone.  The final presentation of the  evening was an excerpt from a  work in progress that has all the  makings of a one-man tour de  force for actor Bill Murdoch.  "Dying Echoes of E.A. Poe",  written by Doug Bankson in collaboration ith director Kiko Gonzalez and Vancouver's Murdoch,  has Murdoch personifying not only  Poe but thinker August Dupin,  American poets James Russell  Lowell, Oliver Wendell Holmes  and Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, and painter Roderick (of  the house of) Usher - and that's  just in the 45-minute excerpt to  which Saturday's audience was  treated. The full-length play will  open in Richmond in October.  Murdoch showed an amazing  control and versatility in the  smooth transitions he made from  one character to the other, giving  each a life of his own with changes  in voice, accent, stance and posture  and personality. The intensity of  this portrayal of the crazed and inspired Usher was truly riveting,  and contrasted beautifully with the  quiet agony of Poe struggling in  the throes of creating inspiration  and the almost casual genius of  Dupin.

We have been unable to  make ice and until the weather cooperates all plans are on hold.  At the general meeting on  September 19, Larry Boyd announced that league registration is  down. There are openings on Tuesday Night Mixed, Thursday Night  Men's and Ladies' as well as Friday  Evening Mixed. Please sign up if  you are thinking about joining so  that Larry can make up the  drawsheets - we are running out of  time.  Ladies, are you interested in  learning to curl but are sceptical of  competitive   leagues?   Then   the  Monday Afternoon Ladies'  League is just the place to start..  Curling is on Monday afternoon  from 12:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. with  babysitting provided for anyone  with preschoolers. You can contact -  Edna Husby at 886-2454 to  register.  Junior curling will start the week  after regular league curlingbegins.  The Juniors will have a full season  ahead of them as they will be  hosting the Junior Zone  Playdowns in January. New  sweaters have been ordered for  them and exchange matches are  planned between lower mainland  clubs.  We would like to encourage all  high school students to come out  and give it a try - you just might  like it!  Hockey registration  Hockey registration last weekend got off with a big bang. Initial  registration kept pace with last year  and if the pattern continues from  previous years with late registrants  we should have as many as ever.  In order to complete the required planning for an early October start of the hockey season it  would be appreciated if all boys  and girls interested could register as  soon as possible. Please phone  either Naomi at 885-3665 or Kitty  at 885-2620.  Likewise the hockey school  registration should be completed as  soon as possible. The price will be  the same as last year and as before*  will be excellent value for the  money. The dates are October 6, 7  and 8.  New and interesting plans are  underway. In particular the  Midgets may be able to play on a  regular basis with one of the men's  fun leagues. Also plans are underway for the Bantam teams to be incorporated in a regualr schedule  with Powell River. Expenses would  be kept to a minimum, in that the  teams would be delivered and picked up at the ferry terminals and  would be billetted in the two communities.  These are some of the Sunshine Coast's future synchronized swimmers, and they've already begun practices at Pender Harbour pool  under instructor Jane McOuat. ���i*nc mcouk photo  '&*  An estimated 350 elementary and high school students took part in Elphinstone's Terry Fox Run last Friday, running, walking, bicycling and even roller skating to raise money for cancer research.-FranBumsidephoto  Strikes and Spares  ournament resuits  by Ernie Hume  Last Thursday the senior men  played the first day of the two day  Eclectic Tournament.

He has found western goods like  shampoo very expensive," toilet  paper is priced like a luxury, and of  course one of his top priorities is  airmail paper, "if you run but of  money, that's it!" he says. He has  noted that decent running shoes  are hard to find, but custom-fitted  hand-made leather shoes can be  ready in a week for only 85 rupees.  While exploring the countryside  around the school, Lars has seen  wild parrots, monkeys, palm trees  and mangos - the most common  fruit, and 'observes that "the'  ground is crawling with toads at  night."  At the Landour Bazaar, only  one and one half kilometres from  the school, "everything imaginable  is for sale," with many items  copies of western products. Except, perhaps, for the giant pinkish  orange snake which a woman pulled from' around her neck and  wanted to drape over Lars! At that  point he found a very practical application for his cross-country running.    .  Judging from the thoroughly informative letters which Lars has  sent home - which take two weeks  to arrive, this young man is already  well on his way to becoming an international citizen with a broad  perspective and an outlook appreciative of the intricacies of other  cultures and economies. His sense  of humour and zest for trying new  things will no doubt make his year  in Inda one of the influential and  enjoyable experiences of his life,  and both he and his parents are to  be congratulated for their farsightedness. Such an opportunity  will undoubtedly continue to provide rewards throughout the whole  of his lifetime.  Notice Board  SPONSORED BY:  HAWKEYE REAL ESTATE ltd.  Phone anytime.

Last  Week's ..winner was Fiona West of R.R.#1 Halfmoon Bay, who  located Mrs. Findlay's Camelot sign on Redrooffs Road near the  Welcome Beach Hall.  Area E meets  At its meeting of September 12,  the Elphinstone Electors Association agreed to ask the principal of  Cedar Grove elementary school to  sponsor a competition among  students to find a name for a newly  acquired park.  Lot 906, beside Woodcreek Park  Cemetery, has been viewed as a  possible park site since 1972.  On another matter, some opposition was expressed to the creation of a boat launching area at the  bottom of Camp Road. Residents  bordering the area feared an influx  of vehicles with trailers.'However,  when it was explained that the proposed boat launch was for "car-  top" boats only, the concenred in  dividuals were more receptive to  the idea.  A letter outlining their concerns  is being sent to the regional board.  Discussion also took place on  proposed changes to school bus  seating regulations coming into effect October 1. Recognizing on the  one hand that the stricter seating  regulations (two to a seat) are .intended to add to the safety of  students, the ratepayers nevertheless felt that the increased costs  of transportation would tax an  already overburdened school board  budget.  It is estimated that the number  of buses will have to increase by  one third to meet the new standards.  Members of the Sunshine Coast  Central American Support Committee are meeting this week to  begin the "Tools for Peace Campaign". Formerly called the "Boat  Project," this is a Canada wide effort of people to help with the  reconstruction of Nicaragua and  perhaps more importantly, to show  Nicaraguans as well as the rest of  the world that Canadians support  peaceful programs of aid. Two  years ago the residents of the Sunshine Coast responded to the  "Boat Project" and sent  thousands of dollars worth of very  valuable equipment including an  operating table, school desks,  typewriters, and tools. These were  all shipped on a freighter and  distributed throughout the very  poor country.  Few Canadians are aware that  the Canadian government has, in  the last three years, sent over $40  million in aid to Honduras. This  was justifiable when the country  was considered the "focus" country in Central America and chosen  so as not to spread limited Canadian aid too thinly...but now Honduras has become a staging area  for the United States military and  thousands of U.S. troops are turning that country into a military  power.  Only $5 million in Canadian aid  has gone to Nicaragua. Private  organizations have sent more to  Nicaragua than the government,  and it is this assistance that has  enabled    the Sandinista govern-  Our town  < ASSAULT: PART 15  '. The Law and Sexual Abuse  : of Children  *    Police  investigations  into   the  "sexual abuse of children is guided  by three primary sections of the  Criminal Code of Canada.  Section 146 of the Code deals  with sexual intercourse with  children of 14 years arid under, carrying a maximum penalty of life  imprisonment. There is no defense  to the charge, even if the child consents to the act or if the person  believes the child to be older than  .14 years. An offense is also com  mitted if the child is 14 to 16 years  old, whether the person believes  the child is older or not.  Section 150 of the Code deals  with incest. Incest means sexual intercourse with a blood relative,  whether it be mother, father, son,  daughter, grandmother, grandfather or grandchild. This charge  carries a maximum penalty of 14  years."  Section 153 of the Code deals  with sexual intercourse with a stepchild, foster child or female ward.  This criminal offense carries a  maximum penalty of two years in  A n tiques & Collectibles  Si������ijij|iiHnUm��i  #.t>Ja\..'MMM,  Mark Guignard  A man set down three pieces of luggage before a clerk at the airline  counter.

These are specific offenses  which also include molestation at  any level on male or female  children/victims, as discussed in  previous articles.  Child sexual abuse is a concern  in Our Town and it is very difficult  to make our statistics available for  publication since locally it is severely under-reported. There are  several reasons for this. Too often,  the victim simply doesn't realize  what is happening to him or her.  Or the victim is intimidated by the  perpetrator, threats are made and  guilt can be a great silencer.  Often, the spouse of the offending parent or relative is well aware  that abuse is taking placei The  spouse says nothing and ignores  the problem. Sometimes, the  spouse is a battered spouse who  wouldn't dare report to police that  an offence is being committed  against her own children for fear of  retaliation. Sadly, not interfering  with a spouse's attacks on the  children often means a break for  the battered spouse. It is is no coincidence that the profiles of the  rapist, the wife batterer and of the  sexual abuser offer a striking  resemblance.  Many reasons can be cited to explain why sexual abuse is such an  under-reported crime. It is a  trauma which affects the core of  the family unit -and a time bomb  that shatters the very foundations  of human nature.  . It is everyone's duty to prevent  the sexual abuse of children.  Should you suspect that a child is  being sexually abused, especially in  your own family, report it. The  emotional scars a child is left with  as a result of sexual abuse are not  worth anyone's silence or inaction.  If you are a child being abused,  don't be afraid to come in and talk  to a policeman. Find out if what is  happening to you is sexual abuse or  any kind of abuse. No one has the  right to abuse another person no  matter what the relationship or  situation is. The police are experienced and all their investigations are discreet and confidential  and not all situations result in  charges being laid.  If you are abused, or if you  think you are, do something about  it, find out. Put an end to it.  Next week, a sexual abuse care  worker speaks out.  Please write to us. We need to  hear from you. If you have been  abused or had a member of your  family abused, please write it  down. Your letters need not be  signed. Please write, share your experiences and thoughts on the subject of sexual abuse. Write to: Our  Town, Box 460, Gibsons, B.C.

Polio, a major killer, has in  the last few years been completely  eradicated. These improvements  have carried on even during the attacks from Honduras that the U.S.  has financed and promoted.  This opportunity for direct ac-  . tion in assisting the needy in  Nicaragua can make a difference in  the daily lives of Nicaraguans.
