Array LEGISLATIVE LIBRARY  Parliament Buildings  VICTORIA, B.C.  V8V 1X4  85.4  >;���   Evaluations  of last  week's  : "Aquaculture Development in  : B.C." seminar rate it as 'very  ; successful', and from all sides  sponsors   have   been   congratulated on running such a  -^veil-organized event. Credit for  -this   must   go   to   Economic  Development   Commissioner  Oddvin Vedo and his assistant  .Fred   Sverre   of  Entech   Environmental Consultants Ltd.  Attendance at Wednesday's  fiill-day lecture sessions reached  177, considerably higher than  the 35 participants initially anticipated. A 'hands up' count  during one session indicated the  crowd was composed of 10  federal government representatives, 13 provincial representatives, nine people in the service field (providing feed,  equipment, etc.), 19 consultants  from firms which help set up  aquaculture operations, one  veterinarian/pathologist, 11  bankers or people representing  investment interests, eight current fish farmers, and over 60  would-be fish farmers.  Government representatives  spoke of what their various  departments   are   doing   to  enhance and facilitate the  development of an infrastructure to support the fledgling  aquaculture industry. In the  opening speech of the seminar,  Ann Levi-Lloyd, an advisor of  the Science Council of Canada,  indicated that fisheries minister  John Fraser had recently stated  that a high priority should be  accorded to aquaculture and a  policy should be in place for  this.  Levi-Lloyd further noted the  profits, new wealth and employment the industry has created in  other countries, and indicated  increased exports of seafood  products, jobs, support services  and industries, enhanced stocks  and supplements to the commercial fishery as resulting from  aquaculture. "Canada's  resource base is more than adequate to support an aquaculture  industry of immense growth,"  she said.  She urged caution, too,  against proceeding without  developing all aspects which are  essential to successful  aquaculture operations. Needed  are suitable sites, seed stocks,  feed stocks, technology,  biological and business expertise, marketing systems and  financing.  "I hope we emerge from this  seminar with the realization that  we must not proceed too quickly, with naive enthusiasm, so  that we end up with a rash of  failures," she said.  Representatives from  aquaculture operations in Norway, Sweden, Scotland, United  States and Canada gave presentations in the areas of production, production cost and financing, site and equipment  specifics, marketing and future  developments in the industry.  One of the keynote addresses  was from Paddy Secretan,  Managing Director of  Aquaculture Insurance Service  Ltd. of England.  Mr. Secretan injected a sombre note of realism into the proceedings with his emphasis on  the many high risk factors in the  industry, and the major stock  losses which can result from  disease, bad feed, or poor  hydrological . conditions.  "Aquaculture can be disastrous  *Mthout many conditions being  .right," he said, and warned that  Jfish farmers were often blinded  to* these facts by the emotion involved in being a trail-blazer on  ajnew frontier.  M"Most operations are based  on too optimistic projections  and too little capital," he  observed. He did, however,  recognize the "tremendous  potential if you play your cards  right," and gave a team analogy  of   the   way   governments,  bankers, veterinarians, scientists  and fish farmers must work  together to make the industry  successful.

Trustee Stephen tried to  ascertain just how much the taxpayers were being committed  to, "I don't want to be asked to  sign a blank cheque," he explained.  Trustee Hodgins, expressing  his diffidence in taking part in  the discussion as the Bowen  Island candidate is also involved, nevertheless felt "we should  be careful in rushing to assume  financial responsibilities. A  piece of me says we should be  involved and a piece says we  don't know it all".  The discussion went back and  forth between Trustee Frizzell's  insistence of the urgency of the  need for everyone to know the  board supported the candidates  and   Trustees   Stephen's   and  Action needed now to save forests  Foresters face future  Led by a former Chief  Forester of B.C., Bill Young, of  the Canadian Forestry Association of B.C. has come storming  out of the starting gate this fall  with a new high profile, public  advocacy program designed to  rescue the imperilled forests of  British Columbia.  Bill Young took early retirement from the position of Chief  Forester for B.C. in June of  1984.  "I'd intended to catch up on  the house painting and  weeding," Young told the  Coast News,in an interview last  week, "but I was approached  about taking part in the new  policy of the forestry association and I felt it just had to be  done."  ; Young was on the Sunshine  Coast last week along with the  (Coast Regional Manager of the  forestry association, Dave  Campbell, who works out of  1200 West Pender Street, to attend a meeting of the Howe  Sound directors including the  District Manager for the Sechelt  Forest District, Barry Custance.  * 'We're not going to make it  in forest management in this  province without the support of  the   public,"   said   Young..  I'There   can  be  no   support*  without a knowledgeable public  and we can't get the public  knowledgeable without the support of the media."  v The president of the forestry  association stressed that the emphasis in the association's approach was on a non-aligned  appeal featuring great width bf  support.  "I feel very comfortable with  this hat," said Young. "We are  beholder- to no one except the  forest itself and committed to its  wise use."  , Young told the Coast News  that at the present levels of  forest management there will be  a reduction of timber harvest in  this province by as much as one-  third in a generation.  "It's not that the sky is falling," said Young. "We have  several decades to make sure it  doesn't happen if we act now."  Young pointed out that in  such countries as Sweden and in  the south-eastern United States  a period had been experienced  where over-harvesting had  drastically cut into timber production. "We can avoid it here,  if we act now," said Young.  Young called for a partnership of the federal and provincial governments to fight to save  the forests.  "The problem is that with  forests there is ho obvious gain  for money spent for 60 to 70  years, apart from the immediate  employment created," said  Young. "But our competitors  are taking the long view and we  must learn to do likewise."  The first step, said Young,  must be for an agreement between the provincial and federal  governments   to   spend   $300  million on forest renewal over  the next five years.  From his visit to the Sunshine  Coast, the Canadian Forest  Association president went next  day to Vancouver Island where  he took the mayors of several  municipalities on field trips to  show them the techniques which  could bring back the forests of  the province if the money to  support them is spent now.  Island mayors are to travel to  Ottawa to support the call of  the forestry association.  "Our forests are not inexhaustible. They're not even  renewable without our help.  Long-term investments must be  made and must be made now,"  said Bill Young.  School cuts fake effect  School district #46 will have  2.7 fewer teaching positions  than it currently has when the  January-term begins.  Superintendent of Schools  John Denley and Assistant  Superintendent John Nicholson  could not be reached for comment, but Secretary-Treasurer  Roy Mills told the Coast News  that all the positions have expired through attrition, with  two retirements, the expiry of  several temporary appointments  and a maternity leave. No one  who has a position was laid off.  Loss of the positions has  meant a shift in staff  assignments and several  transfers. Roberts Creek  elementary has lost a teacher to  Cedar Grove to fill a maternity  leave position, and this left  Roberts Creek staff spending  their non-instructiondal day last  Friday figuring out how to shift  children into different classes in  the new year and the best way to  adjust teaching assignments.  Newly appointed Elphinstone  principal Dave Stigant noted the  retirement of the full-time art  teacher, but said he has not yet  been told if the school is losing  the position. "The art program  is still in place," he said. "I expect there will be a decrease in  staff, but I don't know if it will  be a full position. Staff  assignments will likely have to  be readjusted."  At Chatelech, a .6 learning  assistance teacher is retiring,  and principal June Maynard  said she doesn't know how  much or where the position will  be lost.  Hodgins' concern that a decision should not be made in such  an emotionally charged atmosphere* that the issue having  been discussed at length and  payment agreed to in principle,  the matter should be tabled to  the next meeting for a decision.  The outcome, however, after  two amendments failed to get a  seconder rwasvarwegreement tom -  pay properly receipted costs incurred in bringing the appeal  for a judicial recount before the  court not to exceed $2,000, but  that such costs should not include the personal counsel for  the candidates at the hearing.  The date for the judicial recount has been set for Tuesday,  December 4.  V.  Fire safety course  The Elphinstone Electors' Association is hosting a meeting,  sponsored by Canadian Forest Products, on December 12 at  Cedar Grove elementary school on the subject of fire prevention and fire safety.  The main emphasis is to be on safety within the home.  "Every home should have a smoke detector, a fire extinguisher and an escape plan to be used in case of fire," said  president, Mrs. Joan Mahlman at the Gibsons council  meeting, November 20.  Feature of the evening will be a one and a half hour slide  show on fire escape, and various sensor devices and fire extinguishers will be on display. There will also be a raffle, with  a smoke detector as first prize, a fire extinguisher for second,  and a tin of creosote remover for third. The meeting starts at  8 p.m. and everyone is welcome.  Stigant chosen  The board of school trustees is pleased to announce that it  has confirmed Mr. David Stigant as principal of Elphinstone  secondary school.  There were 31 applications for the position and candidates  interviewed by the board were of the highest calibre.  It is the opinion of the board that Mr. Stigant is already offering leadership in the positive growth of Elphinstone secondary school.  Guess who came to town last week! Santa arrived at Sunnycrest  Mall by firetruck, and in no time was listening to Christmas wishes  and figuring out who's been good. -f��� Burnside phcso Coast News, Decembers, 1984  *-���   _  f  The call from the Canadian Foresters Association of  B.C. for wise management of our diminished forests now  is welcome indeed. In their president, Bill Young, they  have the man who until June of this year was the Chief  Forester for the province of British Columbia and when  such a man says that we must act without delay if we are to  protect the priceless heritage of B.C. forests it behooves us  to listen.  Recent action on silvaculture has been postponed  because of characteristic pettiness between Victoria and  Ottawa. The time for such petulance is past.  We note that when Bill Young went to Vancouver  Island last week he made instant converts out of the  municipal leaders with whom he spoke. It is to be hoped  that the Sunshine Coast, with as much at stake, will be  equally swift to ally themselves with the apolitical foresters  in this important matter.  A cold fish  Health Minister James Nielsen is certainly on the job  guarding the provincial coffers. Last Wednesday, in  response to a query about the government's hesitancy in  granting $2 million in aid to starving Ethiopians, he told  us: "It's not an obligatory program on our part...We get  literally thousands of requests from people. We establish  our own schedule and timetable." Perhaps, one wonders,  he is waiting for more people to die, perhaps the wheels of  the bureaucratic machine do not yet haye enough grist for  the mill.  One may also wonder if this omnipotent attitude extends to the minister's own department where cutbacks  have raised serious questions about the state of health care  in the province. Unfortunately people who fall ill or have  accidents or have nothing to eat are not always able to wait  until those wheels grind on.  A minister of health might show a little more compassion for his fellow human beings. One does wonder if the  ��� care of our health should be in the hands of such a cold  fish.  by Dianne Evans  5 YEARS AGO  Don Hadden, a Sechelt realtor, rescues five men  stranded on Bertha Rock when their boat hit a log, began  to sink ahd had to be abandoned.

There's nothing like  fondling the levers of power to  bring the Conservatives to a  quick climax of delusions of  grandeur and the accompanying  paranoia. The champions of  freedom of information while in  opposition are in danger of  becoming caricatures of bumbling ineptitude in vain pursuit of;  secrecy now/that they are in',  power, i  But what ineptitude! Micnaei  Wilson claims that;; ij;; is~~in-  advertence that led him taMape  a meeting with a' Mahitoban  cabinet minister. Then he goes  and leaves a bunclfof confidential papers lying in the hotel lobby and gets, huffy when journalists, starved for copy, read  them.  The accident-prone Wilson  would have been the butt of Ottawa laughter for weeks but for  the fact that the past master of  the pratfall, that old walking accident himself, who else, Joe  Clark stumbled on stage with  some truly breathtakingly  cretinous incompetence.  It's not that Clark has been  off stage long. The man with  the genius for tying his shoe  laces to the wrong ankles and  trying to walk recently was the  centre of a storm of controversy  when, getting into the spirit of  Conservative secrecy, he forbade members of the department of foreign affairs should  socially interact with journalists. I mean in the outposts  of the world the poor sods have  What dark pass?  nobody else to play poker with.  Joe was just beginning to live  that one down with the help of  Michael Wilson when he got  tangled up with his tape  recorder. Somehow the minister  of external affairs managed to  have sent out to radio stations a  tape or two of his presumably  confidential correspondence  about external affairs. The fact  that the dictation discloses that  Clark doesn't know whether the  Nicaraguans have an ambassador in Canada or not does  nothing to detract from his image, as one of the most peculiarly inept figures ever to aspire to  national leadership.  Despite amazing performances from Wilson and Clark  in the east, the best tape  recorder story, or the worst if  you will, comes right out of our  very own B.C.  That tireless poll-taker and  re-maker of political images  Patrick Kinsella, perhaps  betraying a little human need  for appreciation in addition to  the hundreds of thousands of  dollars he gets paid in this province for misleading the electorate, was moved to explain to  a class of marketing students at  Simon Fraser -University just  what had gone into the successful marketing of both  Premier Bill Bennett and Prime  Minister Brian Mulroney in the  most recent provincial and  federal election. You know  what? Somebody had a tape  recorder.  The tape was played on the  CBC television news by reporter  Wayne Williams. The audio  was fairly clear. No one denied  the speaker was Kinsella ahd  there was no doubt about what  he was saying. Premier Bill Bennett was questioned about some  of the statements and did a  classic performance of his own:  he glared through a mirthless  little smile, bobbed and weaved  like a boxer with lockjaw, and  ended up telling the young  reporter he was 'full of it'  before scurrying away down a  corridor.  Perhaps the really interesting  thing about the B.C. tape  adventure was what happened  next. Next day the Vancouver  Sun ran a story about the tape  as it referred to Brian  Mulroney, though three  quarters of the material seemed  about B.C. provincial politics in  1981. A day later on the front  page there is a report which tells  about how Kinsella manufactured a tough guy image for Bill  Bennett, mostly because he  didn't have much choice.  But to allow the debate to  focus on Bill Bennett's image is  to miss the point, which is what  the image makers are always  trying to get us to do. The real  savage point that can be inferred from the Kinsella confession  is that he may have helped  manufacture an economic  policy for B.C. as well as a  tough guy image for Bennett.  So Bennett is elected to be  tough and to restrain and looks  for advice now about how to do  it. Enter the Fraser Institute  -power vacuums are always filled - and we have the brutal and  misguided economic policies  which have B.C. still in a state  of shock and lagging far behind  the rest of the country in  economic performance.  What I am suggesting is that  Bennett's need for an electable  image was the biggest original  reason for the slashing attack  launched by the Socreds against  the people of B.C. The people  in hospital beds in hospital lobbies, the children beginning to  feel the changes caused by the  educational cutbacks, the handicapped who have lost much  needed help, programs for the  aged - all of the anguish visited  on this province in the last 18  months stem from Bill  Bennett's need for a 'tough guy'  image.  Three separate incidents with  tape recorders in the past week  have given us glimpses of  governments both monumental-  ly inept and corruptly  machiavellian. To what dark  pass has democracy come?  Animals  Maryanne's    viewpoint  / think I could turn and live with animals, they are so  placid and self-contained;  I stand and look at them long and long.  They do not sweat and whine about their condition;  They do not lie awake in the dark and weep for their sins;  They do not make me sick discussing their duty to God;  Not one is dissatisfied���not one is demented with the  mania of owning things;  Not one kneels to another, nor to his kind that lived  thousands of years ago;  Not one is respectable or industrious over the whole earth.  Walt Whitman  November retrospect  by Maryanne West  November: I used to think of  it as a month of unrelieved  gloom, grey, wet and unpleasant. Partly I supposed because  the clock goes back at the end of  October and suddenly it's dark  before six o'clock. It's  November and winter is upon  us and the monsoons begin.  Actually December is often a  wetter month than November  but perhaps knowing that by the  end of December we'll have  passed the solstice and be on  our way back towards the sun  gives December a more cheerful  aspect. And then of course  there's Christmas.  Be that as it may and despite  the rain (this year has been  another wet one, almost 12 inches, well above average) I've  found myself enjoying  November. Maybe it's one of  those advantages of increasing  age that brings things into  sharper fociis or perhaps it's inherent in the time of year, the  quality of light and shadow  when the sun is low in the sky.  It's a particularly nasty day,  rain occasionally mixed with  snow, as I write cosily beside the  woodstove. The leaves now lie  sodden and slippery, but earlier  in the month they cascaded in  yellow profusion down the  beach trail, and in the evening  as we turned from the reflected  light off the sea to make our  way homeward they illuminated  the steps with memories of blue  and gold Indian summer days.  The beach at this time of year  changes, clean swept by high  tides. The trail I've been walking along the logs is re-arranged  almost daily. Logs which I've  looked upon as friends for  months disappear overnight or  are removed half a mile or more  to a new location. High tides accompanied by wind, whip the  crests of the waves and scatter  foam as the sea rushes up the  beach seemingly determined to  catch me flat-footed on a patch  of gravel as I venture along a  log between sallies.  It's exhilarating and fun as  one takes the unaccustomed  way among the debris at the  back of the beach, unsure of  one's footing, scrambling  around stumps and over piles of  jumbled logs dodging the spray  as the waves crash against them.  In contrast some evenings are  still, the only sound the cry of  gulls and the quiet ripple of the  tide, the clouds have rolled in  and the sea is darkening almost  to black. Not a vagrant leaf  stirs, everything is waiting, as it  were, with bated breath for the  coming storm. There is a tense,  heavy feeling to the air, yet at  the same time it is charged with  an expectancy that's almost  electrical. For all the stillness  there is an underlying excitement which is palpable.  A few days later, the storm  has spent itself and I come  home along the beach after  sunset in the gathering dusk.  The air is again still, nothing  moves except the gentle rocking  motion of the sea, but there is:  no pent-up emotion engendered *  by a coming storm. Tonight:  there is a warmth, despite the:  actual temperature, as though,  the encroaching night was en-:  circling everything in a soft:  blanket. I'm reminded of a line:  in an Irish lullaby "and Mary:  wraps around him her mantle of;  blue". The colour is grey but;  the peace, security and the-  oneness of life in all its differing*  manifestations is the same.  Eagles are exciting whenever!  you see them, but never more so:  than on a November morning at:  sunrise, a pair, side by side, high;  on   an   old   fir   warming;  themselves in the first rays of;  the sun which stream along the  beach from a rift in the clouds,  touching the breaking waves of  the steel grey sea with gold and-  spotlighting the stark black and  'white birds and the outline of;  the old tree bright against the:  dark   clouds   behind.   It's:  breathtakingly spectacular and:  such   contrasts   abound   in;  November on the Coast. : Coast News, December 3,1984  Photo   Reprints  Any published photo or your  3s   4- 3"  choice from the contact sheets      _      - q _ ��h  Editor  Congratulations to the SCRD  Ferry Committee for informing  the public that some very  serious thought has been given  to improving the Langdale ferry  terminal. The diagrams published in both local papers illustrate  how very simple and, at practically no cost, it would be to  improve the facilities for all  concerned as demonstrated by  Plan B.  Herewith a list of the many  improvements a change from A  to B would provide: 1) Safety  -by eliminating pedestrians having to cross over loading vehicle  lanes; 2) Existing protected  pedestrian walkway would terminate at vehicle parking area;  3) No interference with on-  loading vehicles at ticket gate to  drop off or pick up passengers;  4) No interference at ticket gate  for purchasers of ticket books  at office; 5) Less than half the  distance to walk from parking  lot and then under cover (see  no. 2). This is a most important  consideration for elderly people  and for everyone in bad  weather; 6) Absolutely no inconvenience to vehicle traffic as  they remain warm and dry at all  times! Also they are closer to  Doomed by ancient idiocy  Editor:  During the whole of man's  history, wars were with him.  However, there were always  survivors, to re-populate the  earth. We now know that we  have reached the point where  the killing is so devilishly proficient that we may well destroy,  ourselves, completely, as well as  the world and its other  creatures.  This seems so incredible that  there are still those who seem  unable to take it in. The fact is,  unless we break away from our  ancient idiocy, we are doomed.  Many of us, who after many  years of sounding the alarm,  were dismayed at the indifference of too many, especially  in high places. We were encouraged to hear a very bright  and brave lady on Jack  Webster's [show] on this critical  matter.  Her name is Dr. Helen  Caldicott, mother of three  children. As I understood her,  she is motivated by a sincere  Christian faith, to believe that  Christ expects not only spiritual  devotion but also devotion to  the physical well being of our  fellows and the preservation of  our habitat. But, it is very late.  My own reading of Holy writ  convinces me that God is able  and willing to guide us. We see  the trusting eyes of beautiful  children and we know what we  have to do. *  ���   .  Let us leave off political  fault-finding and seek out practical action. We are a free peo-  ple, -so we:can speak out. Free  speech is not permitted in Communist Russia. Therefore we  must, somehow, talk to them.  The great majority of Russians want peace - they know  what war means. They were our  comrades in the great wars.  The world trusts Canada. We  like pur American neighbours  but we will not be a party to  some of the foolish things they  are doing.  For instance, we must condemn their 'first strike' statement. We must condemn their  agression toward Nicaragua.  Their nuclear escalation is, insane, just as is Russia's.   .  We should pursue any symbolic gesture, even like declaring  Canada nuclear-free.  At the same time we should  provide reasonable conventional peace-keeping forces.  Our local people have made  several proposals that we could  endorse and not ridicule. In  short Canada is the natural 'go  between' in this blind and  mindless rush to mutual suicide.  But we must let our political  leaders know we expect them to  speak and act for world peace.  Let Canada act independently  as befits a free people with  malice to none.  We have a vision of the  brotherhood of man and the  fatherhood of God. May our  teachers and our preachers, our  writers and ordinary folk look  up and see the world is waiting  for the sunrise.  E.W. Davies  Pemberton thanks  Editor:  On behalf of the residents of  the Pemberton Valley I would  like to express sincere gratitude  to the residents and businesses  of the Greater Vancouver  Regional District, Lower  Mainland and the province of  B.C. for their tremendous support and assistance to the victims of the recent Pemberton  Valley flood.  The overwhelming support  came in the form of donated  food, clothing, furniture, bedding, household items, toys,  financial contributions, donated  equipment and materials, and  volunteer labour.

The magnanimous assistance  that was given to the Pemberton  Valley residents will long be  remembered.  Shirley Henry, Mayor  Village of Pemberton  Love Thy  Neighbour  Editor-  Why do people insist on saying that capital punishment is a  deterrent to murder? No where  has this been pro'veri.  In NormanStewart's letter in  the November 26 issue of the  Coast News, he quotes the Ten  Commandments as a way to  regulate modern society. One of  the commandments is "Thou  Shalt Not Kill". To me this  means everyone.  He also quotes the Bible to  further his arguments, but both  quotes are taken from the Old  Testament where "An Eye for  An Eye", etc. was the message.  The New Testament's message  is that we should "Love Thy  Neighbour as Thyself" - hardly  an endorsement of capital  punishment.  , Dale Burns  Wilson Creek  Highway  Safety  Editor:  . As the days grow shorter  there is more chance of children  being on the roads at dusk. On  two late afternoons I have encountered four incidents of  cycles and a motorbike without  rear lights or reflectors or  without lights at all.  When you are passing oncoming car headlights it is often  impossible to see a cyclist in  dark clothes and without even a  reflector visible.  One instance was of two  under 10 boys on one bike in  downtown Gibsons. They had  nothing to give notice of their  presence. The street lighting  there helps but I doubt they got  home with benefit of street  lamps all the way.  The kids think they aire just  taking chances of getting ticked  off but parents know the greater  hazard is getting hit. It's cheap  insurance to check on bike  lights and reflectors.  Jack Warn  Gratitude  Editor:  Our sincere thanks go out to  the individuals, groups and  businesses who generously contributed to the "Relief Fund"  set up for Ross Lane and his  surviving children.

Increasing ferry traffic appears to be a major considera-.  tion at this time. Is there a better  way to start than by making  things easier and more pleasant  for everyone to use the ferries?  This constructive, peaceful  survey should provide the B.C.  Ferry Corp. with the best community input it has ever received  and without confrontation!  Surely it must place a high  priority on this type of constructive criticism and start initiating some plans to improve  the people service. We should  be proud of our ferry system.

No, you won't see a turkey,  not one with feathers anyway,  and no you won't have to shoot  unless you want to. But you can  watch the fellas that do enjoy a  few hours of target shooting,  These seem to be mostly local  men with a most interesting collection pf guns. The targets they  shoot and try to hit are those  Turkey Pies that have been  floating around for awhile, you  buy a slice of the pie which is  the target, then hope someone  hits the slice you have bought  because that's what makes you  a winner.  I went last year and took a  five-year old friend. We both  thoroughly enjoyed ourselves as  the Pender Harbour Wildlife  Society goes all out for this day.  It was chilly but they had a good  fire burning, and for a small  sum there was tea, coffee and  lots of goodies.  Put gumboots on the kids  and drive or hike up. It's a short  walk and maybe see and hear  your slice win you a couple of  drumsticks for Christmas.  Weather permitting, I'll be  there, that means if there isn't  any snow. I can drive in the  rain, but snow forget it. I'd  rather stay home, switch on the  Christmas lights and enjoy.  NOT SO WELL LIST  Vi Berntzen is on the "not so  well" list at this time.

President Ruth  Kobus and her executive wish to  thank all the knitters, hand craft  workers and volunteers for their  time and help in '84.

The  Bargain Barn will be open until  Saturday, December 8. Last day  for the clinic showcase is  December 15. No matter which  way you are travelling the clinic  is not out of your way. You just  may find that Christmas gift in  their showcase.  SHOPPING HINTS  The Thrift Store is open every  Wednesday until December 19.

Good grief! Sometimes  things slip up the way we don't  want them to and that happened two weeks ago when an item  about our hospital auxiliary  luncheon went under the knife  at production time.  The most important item in  that article though was an announcement from Lou Farreli  that donations were being accepted for the "In Lieu of  Christmas Cards" campaign.  For any folks in the community who are not familiar  with this project let me explain.  Instead  of buying  so  many  Christmas cards and sending  . them locally, the mone^jyou  " might have spent is sentpofthe  ' hospital   auxiliary   (Bok   105,  Madeira Park) and after the  cut-off date which is December  12,  a  list  of all  donors  is  published in the paper.  This way more money goes to  the hospital, the donors still get  to say Merry Christmas and  everybody's happier for having  helped. Remember that address  and don't delay as there's only >  about a week to go;; Hurry! \  POOL CLOSES  The Pender Harbour Aquatic  Centre will be closed as of Monday, December 10. It will reopen December 27 through 31  on a Christmas schedule.  Registration for the winter  programs which will begin  January 5 will be on January 3  ahd 4 from 9 to 4 at the pool.

Ted Sundquist is doing much  better again though he'll be a  little while yet. Ted, if someone  takes this to you in that hospital  I hope you'll feel how much we  are caring for your speedy  recovery. Christmas is coming  and there's fun to be had.  The Fishermen's.Homecoming was a downrigging success.  Making it just for the fishermen  and their close friends was a  great idea as the affair was  beginning to lose its relevancy.

The roads have been  great for a few nights now.  We've got a good build-up of  salt but a lot of folks complained that they couldn't travel the  highway last Thursday at supper time ahd had to slither into  Madeira Park and leave their  cars.  Every time I say something  about this it sounds like I'm  bellyaching, but after being informed last year that the  highway and ferry traffic is  priority I way to myself, "Well,  it's not hard to guess when the  traffic will hit Halfmoon Bay,  then run a truck in front of it."  I know how this will sound  but geez I just can't help it, it  seems so logical. When it comes  to safety I'll get caustic anytime.  Other than that they're doing  fine at their job and dealing  with cutbacks at the same time.  Cottage  FOR RENT  1 bedroom with skylight, windows face sunrise and  sunset.

In the mean-  ; time,   she   will   continue   her  printmaking   which   is   her  specialty not only in paper but  * in cloth with which she gets  ; some   very   intriguing   three  ��� dimensional effects.  Visiting her shop is like a visit  ' to a small gallery at the moment  '. as she prepares the display for  the Credit Union walls. She is  expecting  a  varied   stock  of  ��� posters which can be bought  ; framed or plain for Christmas  ' gifts for the young.  REMEMBRANCE  The Remembrance Day  photo shown on the editorial  page about three weeks ago of  Legion members in Gibsons in  1933 has jogged the memory of  several folk in the district.  Dick Kennett, now of Port  Moody, wrote to say that one of  , two men for whom we did not  ; have names is Mr. Atlee, Sr.  However, son John says it can't  be his father since the family did  not settle here until 1935.  Someone thought that one of  the two unnamed men might be  Mr. Kelly, Bob's father. But  that family was not living here  at the time either.

LOCAL WEDDING  A very lovely wedding  ceremony was performed at the  Bethel Baptist Church in Sechelt  last Saturday when Sonja  Jorgensen, daughter of Frank  and Lynn Jorgensen of Halfmoon Bay, became Mrs.  Richard Beauvais.  The bride wasvery beautiful  in her 'traditional white lace  gown while her attendants'  gowns of royal blue made a  delightful contrast. Maid of  Honour was Clover Colbeck  and attendants were two of the  bride's sisters Sandy and Sherry  along with Airlie Stockweil and  Cassie Starrs.  Best man was Gary, brother  of the groom whose parents and  family came from Manitoba for  the occasion.  Almost 200 guests attended  the reception at the Indian Band  Hall for a great evening of  celebration which was MC'd by  Morgan Thompson.  A highlight of the evening's  fun was the unexpected arrival  of yet another bride and groom  who turned out to be Wflf  Hansen as the bride and Sherry  Jorgensen as the groom. Their  performance added a lot of fun  to a most delightful occasion.  Our good wishes go out to Sonja and Richard for a life of  health and happiness together.

Gibsons  by Peggy Cosnor, 885-9347  LOVESEAT FOR BABIES  Mrs. Carol Sinclair gave a  demonstration and talk on baby  car seats for the safety of  newborns at the November  meeting of the St. Mary's  Hospital Auxiliary on  November 27.  The reason for the concern is  that Sinclair is working on an  education program with a car  seat goal of 100 per cent use for  babies heading home out of the  hospital and looking for an  organization to look after the  renting of the Loveseats.  Very graphic film was shown  on how car crashes throw  bodies against windshields and  around a car. Decision to take  on this project will be decided at  a future meeting of the governing body of the auxiliary after  due discussion at the branches.  The annual meeting held on  November 19 had 61 present  with the gift of a Roberts Rules  of Order going to the branch  with the most member by  percentage, present. The book,  donated by president Edith Simmons went to the .Roberts Creek  Branch with her own branch,  Port Mellon, a close second.  Edith Simmons has done a  fine job as the first president of  the six auxiliaries forming one  auxiliary. A friendly caring  lady, Edith drew on her past experience with the Salvation Army to help cany on the business  of the auxiliary.  Pauline Lamb, who finishes  her job as lower mainland  regional representative for  BCAHA in May, was voted to  stand for second vice president  of the BCAHA so her nomination will be sent from this auxiliary.  THRIFT SHOP  Closing days for the Thrift  Shop of St. Mary's Hospital  Auxiliary will start after Tuesday, December 18 being the last  day they are open until January  3.  GIFT SHOP  The Gift Shop in St.  Hospital will dose on December  22 until January 3. Lovely items  for babies are for sale, the work  of many local knitters and  crocheters.  MIRABELLE FORRESTER  Mrs. Tom Forrester passed  away on November 27 at St.  Mary's Hospital. Mirabelle was  a lady of great courage who  came to the coast in 1929. With  her husband Tom she spent 30  years oyster fanning in Pender  Harbour. She retired to live in  Sechelt for her last 25 years,  never complaining even though  her last few years die lived with  diminishing eyesight.  The sort of person one is  always glad to have had the  privilege of knowing.  SECHELT GARDEN CLUB  The next meeting of the Sechelt  Garden Club wUl be the first  Wednesday in February, 1985.  Members of the club will enjoy a Christmas dinner at the  Seniors   Hall   on   Friday,  December 7.  THE CORNER CUPBOARD  Congratulations to Paul and  Helen Toynbee on the opening  of their new store. This is the  main thing that was asked for  by the people of West Sechelt  during the first talks on the  Area B Settlement Plan. The  recommendation in the plan  was that this corner was ideally  suited for such a venture and  should be zoned commercial.  Paul started in business in  Sechelt delivering newspapers.  This occupation seems to have  been the start of many successful business careers. May it  carry on for Paul and Helen.

Once again, I wish to stress the importance of ordering  early, particularly all those needs which larger, organized  groups may require.  To employers we make the strong suggestion, particularly  in these times, that a Gift Certificate for a specific amount  of spending power is the most appropriate. It permits the  recipient to purchase those kinds of things which they more  urgently need or desire. It is also a nice way to help out someone you know who is in need of a helping hand to put  something extra on the table this festive season. A Gift Certificate can be made but "anonymously" if so desired, and  mailed to the recipient, or we can take care of it���as you  wish.  House Cleaning  With expected company, it is usual to do some extra  house cleaning. Our professional style rug steam cleaner  has recently been given a major overhaul and is operating  100% efficiently. Make an appointment for our rug cleaner.

A new format has been introduced for these monthly  meetings in order to return to  the original concept of interesting and informative  events. For the month of  December there are two such  evenings planned, the first one  being on Friday, December 7 at  the Book Store on Cowrie at  7:30 when local author Betty  Keller will discuss her latest  book Black Wolf - The life Of  Ernest Thompson Seton.  Gordon Wilson will also be in  attendance to read some of  Seton's animal stories. The  public is cordially invited to attend this evening and  refreshments will be served. The  draw for the literary Christmas  hamper will also take place during the evening. You are also invited to the next Forge meeting  on Wednesday, December 12  where Betty will be giving a  workshop on writing drama  works.  At the January meeting Judy  Gill will be speaking on a subject dear to many hearts - the  writing of romance, novels,  while February's speaker will be  the ever popular poet Peter  Trower.  Excitement   is   starting   to  Craft Fair  The Arts Centre in Sechelt  will hold its annual Christmas  Craft Fair on Friday, December  7 from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. and all  day Saturday; December 8 from  1.0 a.m. to 4 p.m.  Co-ordinated once again by  Joan Marshall, the fair will  have quality local crafts including pottery, hand painted  . silk scarves, jewellery; cards,  candles and many more hand  crafted items perfect for  Christmas presents.  There will be refreshments, a  bake table, and carol singing by  the Centennial Singers at 11  a.n*L and 1 p.m. on Saturday.  mount among members with  the planning of next summer's  Festival of the Written Arts and  such names as Peter Gzowski  and W.O. Mitchell are being  mentioned as possible guest  speakers.  There is still much planning  to be done for this most ambitious festival so the help and  co-operation of all members  will be essential for the success  of this event. The group would  like to welcome, many new  members.  by Betty and Perry Keller  Since our introduction to  fishing three summers ago,  we've listened to our fair share  of fish stories���and told a few  ourselves���but we've found  none as delightful as those told  by Ron Nelson in And When  You go Fishing. A purist has  pointed out that Nelson is that  aristocrat among men, a  dedicated fly fisherman, while  we are but lowly cod jiggers but,  let's face it, a fish story is a fish  story is a fish story!  And When You Go  Fishing���the title comes from  the Johnny Mercer/Hoagy Car-  michael song "Lazy Bones"���is  the perfect introduction to river  and lake fishing- for the person  searching for a pastime that will  take him away from the rat race  from time to time, but not cost  an arm and a leg. With stories  like The Christmas Steelhead  and Winter River Encounter,  Nelson makes it clear that this is  not just.a fair weather pastime,  and there's a good sprinkling of  stories like Spawning Time and  Salmon Are Survivors with their  emphasis on conservation to set  the right philosophy for the  novice fisherman.  We don't suggest you read  this book all in one sitting as  there is a certain sameness in  stories about fish and  fishermen, but taken a story or  two at a time with your bedtime  cocoa, this one hits the spot.  A fish story of another kind  is Smoking Salmon and Trout  by Jack Whelan, a very  thorough guide to the arts of  smoking, pickling and salting  your catch. Whelan's research  has taken him to many countries to learn their secrets of  preserving fish and he has tried  them all himself. His book is  simply packed with information  ranging from how to care for  your fresh catch to the various  On Channel Ten  Wednesday & Thursday  December 5 &. 6 mv  6:00 p*hk ���;...$ \ i*  Part 1: Elphinstp'ne ys  Chatelech.

I.was far too busy  .'!n the galley to bother with such  'matters, but it seemed at one  "time that we were destined to remain in San Antonio, Chile  ^forever���they were so slow in  getting the 10,000 tons of seed  ,wheat removed from the ship  ;&nd I grew bored with it all.  I had also become disillusioned with the raucouness of the  ^waterfront cantinas. Not only  Swere they, for the most part,,  ^sordid and dingy but the women  |who frequented them were of  Sthe lowest order in their chosen  [���profession, slovenly, none too  Mclean and sadly lacking in sex  ^appeal.  �� It may have been the ex-  ^perience we had had in the  j"Prado Hotel or it could have  '^been I was getting delusions of  ^grandeur, but I started to look  jjarourid for something better.  ^Eventually I found it in the  VJockey Club which was situated  ;ipn a hill overlooking the har-  'bour. It was a prestigious club  that nightly featured a flamenco  dancer and five-piece orchestra  but it was reserved for the of-  .ficer class and such gentlemen  fas could afford its expensive  kariff.  ��� I happened at the time to own  j a well fitting tailor-made gray  j suit so, donning that and a  [white shirt with contrasting tie,  tone evening I crashed the por-  itals of this establishment ahd  blithely signed the register "Dec  fCce", Chief Engineer, S.S. Star  jfof. India. There may or may not  Inave been a ship of this name  [sailing the Seven Seas but if  &here was it certainly wasn't tied  up in San Antonio! I had no  'difficulty whatsoever in getting  jfaito the place, but it was the girl  :I met in there that led to all the  troubles that were to ensue.  She was one of the waitresses  and I am at a loss to describe  her as she was one of the  loveliest and most sexy looking  women I have ever had the good  fortune to run into. Her name  was Isabel but to most of the  habituees of the Jockey Club  she was known as "The Green  Hornet", on account of ihe  tight-fitting sheath dresses she  wore and her favourite colour  appeared to be green. I could  never fathom how she got into  those dresses. She looked as if  she had been poured into  them���they were so tight and,  needless to say, emphasized all  her considerable charms and  curves to the most advantageous degree.  It took a while before our acquaintance reached the stage  where she condescended to accept as her escort, and I think  the grandiose manner with  which I dispensed my roll of  pesos had a great deal to do  with it, but I used to wait for  her after closing time and then  we spent the remainder of the  night either at her place or making a tour of the better bars,  many of which stayed open all  night.  When some of the regulars at  the club warned me to watch  out for the "Green Hornet's  sting" I paid little or no attention. Their remarks had no  significance for me at the time. I  was too infatuated with this  gorgeous chunk of femininity to  even enquire what they meant.  There came the evening when I  was to find out!  On this particular night at her  place both of us had been doing  quite a bit of imbibing when she  opened her handbag and produced some small folded pieces  of paper containing a white  powder. She then asked if I  would like a snort of coke and  assured me that it would liven  things up considerably. Following her example, I made a small  (Gibsons firemen inspect the ruins of the home of Desmond and  . ftfargaret Ryan of Gower Point Road, which was destroyed by fire  ' JMiiiy last Sunday morning. The alarm was turned in by a neighbour  at 6 a.m.; the Ryans were in England on holiday, due to return  Home that day. -i��� Bum** photo  1st  Fran & John  Manuane  Fred  Steve  Lynn  Anne  Brad  Jane  Neville Pattrip  Pat (Red)     Lise  Zandra (Z)    Dianne  hollow at the back of my thumb  and inhaled the powder. It  made me sneeze but its effects  were almost instantaneous and  in no time at all I reached Olympian heights that I had never experienced with alcohol. I felt  like a god or superman and  nothing seemed impossible. I  was out of this world for the  time being.  I cannot recall everything that  happened from then on but 1  remember we left her apartment  and, even though the hour was  late, went looking for some  razor blades as I was under the  impression '\ badly needed a  shave. Most of the shops were  closed but we found a small  butcher's shop, or rather a  delicatessen, open and in we  went.  I couldn't follow the ensuing  conversation as it was all in  Spanish but, apparently not  without humour the proprietor,  a short, baldish looking man of  about 40, made it clear that he  had no razor blades and suggested I use the large butcher  knife that was lying on the  counter. Instead of appreciating  the joke I became enraged and,  grabbing the knife, started chasing him around the store. Fortunately for him he made it out  a back door and fled into the  night screaming bloody murder.  Frustrated, now I had to vent  my rage on something so I  directed it on the strings of  sausages that were hanging  from the ceiling and, swinging  the huge knife in wide arcs, pro  ceeded to cut them down while  the "Green Hornet" howled  with glee.  When the police arrived we  were both sitting on the floor  amongst the piles of sausages  and laughing like a pair of  maniacs. I made a token of  resistance and was soon overpowered, but they had a tough  time with my ladyfriend as she  scratched, bit and cursed them  all the way to the paddywagon.  I have only a hazy recollection of the rest of the night's  happenings, as we were placed  in separate cells and were still  there when the Chief Officer of  the S.S. Lake Sicamous arrived  around noon to bail the chief  cook out. Gallantly I refused to  go unless they released the  Hornet also, but the police  managed to make the officer  understand that this was impossible. She was a known  character to them and had a  previous record for possessing  and dealing in drugs. As a matter of fact they had found more  cocaine in her purse when she  was searched at the jail.  They wouldn't even let me  say goodbye to her but she will  always remain in my memory,  as will the night I ran amok Jn  the sausage shop in San Antonio.

The first game saw our third  division side lose a close one  4-0. The only score of the game  came off a fast acting second  phase ruck in which the Lomas  scrum presented their backs off  a loose ruck on the Gibsons 10  yard line.  The three line executed a  wing overlap to the outside man  Ron White. Gibsons played  very well throughout the game  keeping constant pressure ^on  the opposition but failed to  score. A tough loss considering  the game was for first place in  the Vancouver league.  Gibsons second side also lost  a hard fought battle. During the  first half, winger Brian Lymer  scored on another outside  overlap play. Prop forward  Mike Gibson provided the convert. Meralomas fought back  with two tries in the second half  and a field goal leaving the  score at an 11-6 advantage.  Both Gibsons sides would  like to thank all the people who  have supported the side lines  during the first half and we look  forward to seeing you again in  the second half  Tri  Guarantees Low Prices for a  Photographic Christmas  YfttHICfl RUTO FOCUS  ��� Easy Load      ��� Compact 35 mm  ��� Auto Flash     ��� Auto Focus  D Slide Lock Lens Cover  109  99  YASHtCflfnF-  LM Compact 35 mm [ J Built-in Flash  H  Fixed Focus F"  Low Light Warning  ��� Includes a case  99  SPECIALLY PRICED FOR CHRISTMAS  "FRAME  YOUR  BEST SHOT'  ENLftftGEfTliNT  MlS^%'  from most  color negs  WW  'Af1��r the SALE it's the  SERVICE that counts'  ^r^V ���'���"--  CRAFT SALE  Saturday  Dec. 8, 1984  at  1155 Cochrane near  Harmony Lane  10 a.m. to 3 p.m.  Unique handmade  Christmas decorations,  needlework, teddy bears,  stained glass, woodwork.

Frank  ; Ketter was chosen the MVP for  ; the Wamimanas, helped in part  ; by his four goal performance in  ; the final.  The Breakers were originally  : slotted in the 'B' Division but  were moved up to the 'A' Division because of a last minute  cancellation of one of the  teams. They managed a respectable 2 win - 2 loss record,  finishing in second place. In the  three game round robin the  Breakers defeated the Port  Moody Co-op 9-1, edged out  Squamish Extra Old Stock 7-6  and lost to Whistler 7-6. In the  game against Extra Old Stock,  the team that won the Suncoast  Cup there last year, Rand  Rudland scored the winning  goal with 10 seconds remaining  on the clock.  The 'A' Division final was  played late Sunday. The  Breakers entered the game  short-handed because of injuries and players' prior com-'  mitments and paid the price by  getting drubbed 11-0 by the high  flying contingent from  Whistler. Sean Van Strepen was  chosen the Breakers' MVP.  Many of the teams participating in this tournament  will be entered in the Suncoast  Cup tournament to be held here  in March.

Coast News, Decembers, 1984  15.  by Dianne Evens  "Who Wants Unions" was  the theme of the November 28  NDP meeting, and a film of  that name, produced by the National Film Board, was the main  feature.      ��� f.    ���  Filmed largely in Greenville,  South Carolina, Montreal and  Nova Scotia, the film examined  both sides of the union question, and graphically showed  the way in which "union-  busting" has taken on a different cast in the 1980's. There  are still incidents of violence, as  in Great Britain for example,  but the main attack now comes  as psychological warfare.  Charles Hughes, one of the  most prominent of the anti-  unionists, and one of the main  protagonists of the film, travels  widely in the United States and  Canada, lecturing to management in companies who wish to  keep the unions out. His persuasive style and reasonable attitude make his message acceptable to many who see the  unions and their demands as being too costly, and too much  trouble to encourage or even  tolerate.  "Give them what they want  before they organize to ask" is  his major message. At first this  sounds thoroughly reasonable,'  and indeed in many cases the  company which does so, pays  higher than union wages and  provides comfortable, safe surroundings for its employees.  However, the subjects of job  security, pension benefits, and  other important factors are conspicuously absent. There is no  job security and no guarantee  that the wages and conditions of  today will be those of tomorrow.  After the film a panel consisting of Ken Michael, Linda  Olsen, and Bill Peterson spoke  to the audience and answered  questions.  Ken Michael of the Ferry  Workers Union, Langdale  Branch, said, "What we want  for ourselves we want for  everyone. In good times, conditions are usually good even if  the labour isn't organized, but  in bad times, conditions  deteriorate and "union-  w busting" begins.  "Out   of   150   local   ferry  workers,   23   regular  and   20  casual employees have recently  been laid off. That's taking a lot  of money out of our community," he went on. He pointed out  that the present Socred government spends large amounts of  money   on   polls,   testing   its  language and the effect that its  slogans have on the population.  Words like "new reality" sound  impressive, but what they really  mean is frequently unrelated to  the words themselves, he said.  Bill Peterson from the CPU,  in speaking to the audience,  quoted Charles Hughes' chilling  phrase,   "techniques   have  changed but not the intent".  The modern union-buster is as  set on breaking the unions as  were the 'robber barons' of the  IWW days. Peterson pointed to  the   legislative   attempts   to  outlaw legitimate union action,  such as Bill 18 which has deprived the CPU of the right to strike  thereby  removing one of its  main bargaining tools.  "The average worker doesn't  , want to be outside the law," he  said. "Legislate so that when he  strikes he is, then he'll be afraid  and won't act."  The inequities against which  the labour movement does battle include not only such issues  as equal pay for women in the  work-place, but the inequity  that gives Knudsen, recently  retired after only eight years of  service with MacMillan-Bloedel  a pension of $450,000 per annum, when in Powell River a  recently retired member of the  CPU who had been with Mac-  Blo for 43 years, receives only  $1,200 per month; said Peterson.  One of the most important  aspects of the labour movement  is its fight for safety in the  work-place. It has taken 20  years to get asbestosis recognized as a work-related disease and  nm  IHIIIIf  more years to reach a point  where those afflicted and their  families may receive a decent  compensation.  "Every month another 1,200  new chemicals are introduced  into the workplace," said Peterson. "The worker is the one  who finds out if they are harmful or not."  Linda Olsen of CUPE spoke  to the audience about her visit  to the B.C. Federation of  Labour conference in Vancouver, and highly commended  leader of the NDP, Ed Broadbent for his stirring speech to  the federation. "It's good to  know he's on our side," she  said.  She also mentioned that there  were three grade seven classes  present at the convention,  something which she found  gratifying. "We need to educate  our children, to let them know  what is happening," she said.  Education of the people both  within and outside the labour  movement was a point stressed  by several of the audience, who  saw that early knowledge and  information will enable people  to know how much the unions  have contributed in past years,  and how much they are still  needed. There are still, as one  member of the audience said,  thousands of people working in  different jobs under awful conditions, and there are still people who don't receive a fair  wage.  In the current bleak financial  climate the question of higher  wages seems almost extravagant  to some, but higher wages bring  in higher taxes; the worker  receives more long-term benefits  and a union contract gives a  working man with a family to  ��� feed and clothe, more security.  A lower wage may save-the  company money, but it  ultimately costs the taxpayer in  lost taxes, and the lower wage  earner, while he may be glad of  the money in the short run, in  the long run has none of the  benefits.  An example quoted at the  meeting was that of the Expo 86  site and the Kerkhoff scandal.  Although the quoted price for  the job was only about.one per  cent less than the union bid,  wages paid on the job are about  one third less, the difference going, hot to save the taxpayers  money on the project, but into  the contractor's pocket. In fact,  the one per cent saving is less  than one quarter of the taxes the  government lost by hiring the  Kerkoff company. The taxpayer  loses twice.  Bruce Puchalski, towards the  end of the meeting, summed up  the current situation, "There's  been a decline in interest in the  unions, partly due to the success  of the union in terms of obtaining better wages and conditions.  But now there's a concerted at- ,  tack on the unions coming from  all over (the government and big  business), he said. "Maybe that  will get the union members up  and at it again."  t  /CvPtfiA>  GARRY COTTER, licensed denturist  has now joined  The Gibsons Denture Clime  New office hours: Mon., Wed., and Fri., 8:30 - 4  For appointment please call 886-2712  GIBSONS DENTURE CLINIC  207 Cedar Plaza, Hwy 101, Gibsons  Christmas Bonus!!

UIC information  The Unemployment Action  Centre would like to inform you  of what can happen if you have  received a UIC overpayment.  1. While collecting UIC you  are allowed to make up to 25  per cent of your weekly rate  through outside work without  having it deducted from ypur  cheque. However, you must  declare all earnings.  2. If you have received an  overpayment that you do not  disclose, the Commission can  impose an administrative penalty of up to three times the claimant's weekly benefit rate, i.e.  $100 (weekly rate) times three  (maximum penalty) times four  (number of offences) equals  $1,200 maximum penalty.  3. You can make a voluntary  disclosure if you have received  an overpayment. You will then  have to repay the money in a  reasonable time.  4. If you are still on UIC and  have been advised of an  overypayment, it will be  deducted off your next cheques.  If any further information is  required please contact the Action Centre at 886-2425 or  886-3361.  SCRD reservoir  nears completion  The Roberts Creek Reservoir,  situated at the top of Geddes  Road is near ing completion.  The sides are finished and the  next sunny days should see the  pouring of the roof.  The 250,000 gallon capacity  will greatly improve water service to part of Roberts Creek  near Camp Byng but its main  benefit will be felt by those living in Area E, as far along the  highway as the trailer court,  where the increased water  pressure will not only relieve  domestic water problems but  will greatly facilitate fire protection.  The construction went quite  rapidly, according to District  Works Superintendent Gordon  Dixon in a conversation with  the Coast News. The work was  contracted out to March Construction, who, although an  out-of-town company, used  local workers for the steel work,  clearing and carpentry.. The  clearing was completed by  August 29 and the steel footings  for the first pouring of cement  were inspected on October 5.  The reservoir is part of the  Sunshine Coast Regional  District 10 Year Water Works  improvement program, and was  built at a cost of $300,000 of  which $75,000 was received in  aid from the provincial government.  Mac Bio meeting  The Sunshine Coast Environmental Protection Project  (SCEPP) will be meeting with  MacMillan Bloedel Ltd. in  January or February to discuss  Mac   Bio's   plans   for   forest  management in our area.  Residents with specific concerns they wish to have addressed may call Karen 886-8325,  Gail 885-3469 or Mary  885-3429.  North Road and Highway 101,  making sure students of Gibsons elementary get safely  across the busy streets.  By now, somewhat of a Gibsons institution, 73-year old Mr.  Squires will have been on the  job 10 years this coming  January. He took it up after  retiring from several years of  working "everywhere" on B.C.  Ferries. And that was the work  he did after his first retirement,  at the age of 60, which wrapped  up 27 years as foreman at St.  John General Hospital, St.  John, Newfoundland. Prior to  that he had worked in the iron  mines on Bell Island and in the  outports of Newfoundland,  where his family goes back  generations. It was to be closer  to Mrs. Squires' three children  who live on the Sunshine Coast  that the couple made their  cross-country move here in October, 1971.  Dressed in his yellow  mackinaw and sou'wester on a  gale force rainy November day,  Mr. Squires looks every inch the  hardy Newfoundlander that he  is. And of course west coast  weather is nothing to him.  "There's a lot of rain like this in  Newfoundland," he says, "but  there's sure a lot more snow!"  Thank heavens for his hardy  constitution, for he's out braving the elements every school  day from 8:30 to 9:15 a.m.,  over the lunch hour from 11  a.m. to 1 p.m., and again from  2:30 to 3:30 or 4 p.m.,  "whenever all the children have  gone. I know them all pretty  well by now," he says.  Until her retirment two years  ago, Mrs. Squires worked in the  kitchen of St. Mary's Hospital,  and every morning at five  o'clock Mr. Squires would drive  her to work in time for the early  shift from their home on South  Fletcher Road, then go and pick  her up again later in the day.  "And she was never late once,"  he claims proudly.  Mr. Squires' partner in manning the crosswalk is another  Newfoundlander, his wife's  daughter-in-law Mrs. Rose  Martin, who has held the job  for seven years. "He's sort of a  jolly man," she said of her  familial colleague. "He's very  pleasant to work with, and he  certainly enjoys working with  the kids."  Parents can rest easier that  this dedicated, kindly, jolly  Newfoundlander keeps a protective eye on their children as  they wind their way to school  across our busy highway roads.  Seminar a hit  Continued from page 1  Farms of Nelson Island and  Hotham Sound, welcomed the  realistic warning to potential  fish farmers about the risks.  "Prospective farmers visit  our place, and write down,  things like the price salmon sells  for," she said. "When I start  discussing biology and the  diseases you have to watclvout  for, they stop taking notes."  Reaction to the seminar from  the banking and, investment  community, for whom the  seminar was set up, was generally positive.  One gentleman, who was  representing venture capital; interests from Ontario, said he  didn't really learn anything  about aquaculture he didn't  already know, but he, found at  the seminar contacts he needed  to make and people who could  answer questions for him.  "It's a very risky business,  with potential for both incredible profits and incredible  losses," he said. "We need a  new investment model for this  industry, and to learn how to  assess risks. We have to beware  of naive enthusiasm."  But he noted the interest  shown in aquaculture as  evidenced by the turnout at the  seminar. "This is obviously an  industry whose time has come,"  .  he concluded.  Local banker Ron Howes,  Commercial Loans Manager at  the Bank of Montreal in  Sechelt, found the seminar provided useful information in the  areas of licensing and permit  procedures, trends in consumer  demand and prices in the US  market, and was enlightening  on risk and underwriting involvement.  He found the budget and  financial information was  presented too quickly for on-  '. the-spot     analysis,     and  "anything I'm looking at now  { will have to wait" until he  ^receives printed copies of the  material.  "Our bank is already involved in aquaculture financing and  is receptive to new  applications," he told the Coast  News.  The Roberts Creek Reservoir at the top of Geddes Road is nearing  completion. The cement walls are hidden behind cedar siding which  makes the facility not only serviceable but pleasing to the eye as  well.

RUMMAGE SALE  Thanks to all those who contributed to the rummage sale at  the school. The dollars raised  will be used for teaching aides  that presently are not available  due to government cutbacks.  When a shepherd is called from the hills . . . when such  a loss must be faced, look to your family and friends. They'll  be with you ... gather them close and you'll find consolation  and support among them while you await a time when  peace and joy can return to your heart.  You know us  we're a friend of the family.
