 LEGISLATIVE LIBRARY  Parliament Buildings  VICTORIA, B.C.  V8V 1X4  85.4  Cap College not affected  SCRD buys building  Volunteers will soon be calling on homes and businesses as the 1985 B.C. Heart Fund canvass gets underway with a goal of $3.6 million dollars. As Mayor Labonte raises the Heart Flag, canvass coordinators  Mrs. Verla Hobson, and Mrs. Elizabeth Johnston look on. -Dianne Evans photo  June 14 deadline  Jobs plan underway  . Thanks to the receipt of a  LEAD (Local Employment  Assistance and Development)  grant in the amount of $50,385,  a committee is currently at work  developing a long-term economic and employment strategy  for the Sunshine Coast and a  specific proposal designed to  create jobs within a year.  A successful joint application  to Employment and Immigration Canada for LEAD funding ,  by the Sunshine Coast Employment Development Society  (SCEDS), the Economic  Development Commission  (EDC) and the Sunshine Coast  Regional District (SCRD) has  resulted in the formation of the  Economic/Employment Strategy Committee, whose work for  a period of six months is based  on the fulfillment of three major objectives: 1. to complete a  five-year economic/employment development strategy for  the Sunshine Coast, including a  short-term action plan for  1985-86 implementation; 2. to  examine four or five promising  job sectors to determine each  sector's potential to create permanent employment, and to  identify the sector with the  highest employment potential;  3. to complete a feasibility study  on a recommended enterprise  project within the most promising sector and to develop a  specific proposal to be submit- '  ted to LEAD for project funding.  In a press conference held last  week, project leader Bonnie  Pyplacz explained how the project will proceed in accomplishing its goals by its June  14 deadline, and stressed that  public participation will be  crucial to the committee exploring long-term employment  strategies which will best reflect  the types of employment local  residents desire.  Working with project advisor  Maurice Egan, economic consultant John Struthers and his  research assistant John  Reynolds begin this week to interview groups and individuals  inyolved in the areas of  business, human resources,  community interest, government and politics and to hear  their views and recommendations.  General community involvement will be invited in March  when a number of open house  information sessions and  forums which will debate the  pros and cons of various  possibilities will be held.  By the end of April a five-  year Economic Employment  Strategy will be completed, and  the most promising sector will  be singled out. The committee  will determine one possible  enterprise within that sector,  and will spend May and the first  two weeks of June completing a  feasibility  study  on  the  sug  gested project and preparing a  specific proposal which will be  submitted for further LEAD  funding.  Job creation is the objective  of the committee: employment  development rather than  economic development, noted  Pyplacz. "We would -be  satisfied with a break-even  enterprise if it created a number  of long-term jobs," she said.  Sunshine Coast Regional  District chairman Jim Gurney  has announced that the SCRD  has entered into an agreement  with R.B.R. Investments to purchase the Capilano College  building and property to provide accommodation for the  regional district office.  The purchase price for the  6000 square foot free span steel  construction building on 1.7  acres of land is $360,000 -  $100,000 less than it would cost  to purchase the board's present  7000 square foot premises.  The board tentatively  assumes ownership on March 1,  1985, but Capilano College will  continue to occupy the premises  until September, 1986. The current triple net lease with Cap  College provides revenue, in excess of expenses, of $12,000 per  year.  According to Gurney's press  release, "The purchase price  and renovations will be financed by a combination of using  the $180,000 presently held in  the regional district's Building  Reserve Fund . and Municipal  Finance Authority borrowing.  The amount to be borrowed will  not exceed $250,000."  Initial financing will involve  the "payment of $163,000 from  the regional district's Building  Reserve Fund, and the assumption of the existing one year  term mortgage for $197,000".  A down payment of $36,000 (10  per cent) has already been  made.  The press release continues,  "The regional district has taken  this action to reduce the cost of  providing office accommodation. This action will produce a  reduction of at least $23,500 per  year based on a 10 year term for  the amount borrowed.  Ultimately the saving to the taxpayer will be approximately  $70,000 per year which is the  combination of lease fees and  taxes on the present offices."  The board has been assured  that this move will not adversely  affect the presence of Cap College in the community, and will  work with the college to ensure  a minimum of disruption to  both operations when the time  for the actual move comes.  "I'm confident we have made-  the best choice," said Gurney,  who rioted that the board has  been investigating options for  the last year. The motion to  purchase received unanimous  support from those directors  present at a special meeting last  Monday, Gurney said.  During February  Talks scheduled  on B. C. schools  Towards district municipality  Sechelt growth studied  A preliminary meeting was  held on Wednesday, January 30  in Sechelt between members of  the restructuring committee and  representatives from the  ministry of municipal affairs.  Both Area Planning Committees from areas B and C have  approached the village of  Sechelt with a view to joining  the village to create a district  muncipality if a plebiscite  should show that the people  want such a move to take place.  Last week's meeting was a factfinding one, where appropriate  moves were discussed and information exchanged. The ministry  of municipal affairs will present  their preliminary report by  April 1 according to Tom  Moore who sat with the committee to advise and listen.  It was agreed that it is of  prime importance to gauge  public opinion; a public meeting  will be held and some kind of  opinion poll, possibly by  telephone, which provides a  greater response than other  methods. A plebiscite will then  be held if the poll shows sufficient interest, and if an over-all  vote of 50 per cent plus one is  received in favour of the incorporation the minister will then  consider the application and act  as he sees fit.  Mr. Moore s* essed the importance of keeping interest up,  both from the public and from  the ministry; if there is a public  hearing it is important that the  plebiscite follow closely.  The pros and cons of restructuring will have to be laid before  the public before a decision can  be reached. The advantages of  obtaining district municipality  status are many; by-laws need  not be registered, the borrowing  formula is more generous, new  committees may be formed,  and, because a district  municipality represents more  people it has more impact in the  political arena. An important  benefit is the strong powers  such a municipality has for  dealing with problems such as  drainage.  Even though taxation considerations and funding are  powerful incentives for incorporation, they are not always  the only reasons; other issues  are often more important, such  as the desire to have long-term  control over the direction the  development of the area will  take.  Until the ministry of  municipal affairs completes its  preliminary report the restructuring committee will be listening to the public's voice, and  doing what it can to provide the  information necessary to make  an informed decision on this important move.  ."' Members of the committee  include Area B Director, Peggy  Connor, Area C Director, Jon  McRae, Andrew' Steele, Bud  Koch, Frank Gibson, Jack  Marsden, Mayor Joyce Kolibas,  Alderman Anne Pressley, with  village clerk Malcolm Shanks  attending.  The Sunshine Coast School  District is scheduling meetings  for members of the community  to discuss the public school  system in British Columbia. The  meetings have been prompted  by the Ministry of Education's  release of a discussion paper  "Let's Talk About Schools", as  a beginning of a process to  determine the future direction  and emphasis of provincial  schooling. Ultimately this is intended as a means of guiding  the revision to existing legislation. The current school act was  written in 1958.  All pupils in the schools have  taken home a pamphlet from  the ministry describing the provincial review and the topics of  discussion. These pamphlets  went home on Friday, February  1.  TJje ..schools will be holding Va  meetings during the month of"  February at which any member  of the public may attend, in  order to gain information and  share opinions regarding  elementary or secondary education in B.C.  The district school review  committee, composed of Janice  Edmonds, John Denley and  Brian Beecham, will also be  holding four public forums  throughout the district following the school meetings. At the  public forums individuals or  groups may make presentations  or present briefs in response to  the ''Let's Talk About Schools"  discussion paper.  Public forums are scheduled  for: Wednesday, February 13,  7:30 p.m. at Pender Harbour  secondary school; Wednesday,  February 20, 7 p.m. at Sechelt  elementary school; Wednesday,  February 27, 7 p.m. at Elphin-  stone secondary school; Wednesday, March 6, 7 p.m. at  Bowen Island community  school.  Individuals or groups wishing  to present a brief at one of the  district meetings should register  . jhejnJintent ���and obtain further,  information by contacting  David Short at 886-8184.  Copies of the discussion  paper and the response document will be available at all  meetings, your local school,  school board office, and may  also be obtained by contacting  David Short.  Till Expo paid for  Sunshine Coast displays drew considerable attention on opening day (last Saturday) at the Vancouver Boat  Show, and the chief attraction was the aquarium housing several newly baptised B.C. Salmon Sharks.  ���Fran Bumsidc photo  No hospital expansion for BC  Area A Director Ian  Vaughan had some bad news  for the Sunshine Coast Regional  District board on January 24  when he reported on a meeting  with Minister of Health, Anderson on expansion at St. Mary's  Hospital.  "There will be no more  money for hospital expansions  until the provincial government  has finished paying for Expo  '86." explained Director  Vaughan.  "We were told to lump all the  small building proposals into  one large proposal," he continued, "so that it would have a  better chance of being done.  Now, we've been told, if we're'  very good we may get the whole  thing by 1989 or if we're really  good, we'll get it bit by bit,  maybe in a year or two."  In other news from the  SCRD meeting, directors received a delegation from Mr. Bob  Ellis concerning a park dedication, and went on to discuss the  latest moves from the department of highways on the question of access to the Pender  Harbour golf course.  Mr. Ellis has a long and  frustrating story going back 17  years when he originally bought  his property in West Sechelt. He  found, after the purchase, that  the house he had bought was  ten feet over the property line,  at which time he started subdivision proceedings. Seventeen  years later Mr. Ellis is faced  with a situation where his application for subdivision will be  denied unless he gives a portion  of his property for park dedication. This is not feasible because  of .the layout of the property  although Mr. Ellis has expressed his willingness to contribute  towards a centrally located park  at a future date.  Chairman, Jim Gurney was  sympathetic; "An incredible  situation!" he exclaimed, and  went on, "This is the worst  possible situation that could  befall anyone trying to subdivide. We will waive this park  dedication but will investigate  another spot for the park.  Under the present circumstances, park dedications  from the lots laid out as they are  would result in a number of  postage stamp-sized parks, unsuitable for public use. Mr. Ellis  was satisfied with this decision,  and again expressed his willingness to co-operate in future  park dedications in the centre of  the development site.  Alternate Director Lawrenuk  was on hand to present the  latest information from  highways in the continuing problem of an access road for the  Pender Harbour golf course.  The negotiations with the  department have been going on  for more than a year and to date  there have been no satisfactory  arrangements made. "The road  is so substandard," said  Lawrenuk, "and nothing has  been done to make it safer."  The problem is that the  department of highways has insisted on 224 metres of sight  distance on each side of the access road, and the golf course  society road has 196 ms. north,  and 184 ms. south, well above  the average sight distances on  the road between Silver Sands  and Earl's Cove. Clearing has  been done on both sides of the  road and the road has been inspected on several occasions.  Highways raises the problem  of speed limits; at present the  limit at the golf course is 80  kmh; were it lowered to 60 kmh  the sight distances would be  lower and those that presently  exist would be satisfactory.  However the department has  refused to move the speed  limits, even though it is only 350  ms. under question. Chairman  Gurney is to make representation to the department of  highways to help resolve this  impasse, which sees the prevention of the development of this  community facility by the  refusal of the highways department to move the sign. Coast News, February 4,1985  g sweetly  Last week in New Delhi the leaders of India, Mexico,  Sweden, Argentina, Greece and Tanzania signed a declaration calling for a halt to the production, testing, and  deployment of new nuclear weapons and the militarization  of outer space.  The six leaders claimed to represent five countries and  six important non-nuclear nations. During the conference  President Raul Alfonsin of Argentina declared that the  people of the world had lost "Their right to life. We never  renounced it, but almost without realizing it we have seen  it snatched away by the superpowers' arms race."  Of interest to Canada, perhaps, are some remarks made  by President Miguel de la Madrid at a breakfast press conference after the signing of the declaration. He was asked  if he was aware of the risks he was taking by signing the  New Delhi declaration 'because the superpowers dislike  being told what to do by other countries'.  Madrid said that life itself was a risk and that the fundamental sense of foreign policy is to promote and defend  national independence. "An autonomous foreign policy is  one of the clearest demonstrations of the sovereignty of a  country."  Now it would seem from this point of view, somewhat  wistfully, that it would be a marvellous thing if the prime  minister of Canada could with as much dignity as the  president of Mexico affirm this country's right to an independent world view from the giant neighbour that both  countries share.  Canada's increasingly embarassing failure to speak any  note of its own without fear of American disapproval is  part and parcel of the differences between the neighbours  to the north and south of the United States.  Mexico insists on retaining long term control of its land  and its industry. In the shadow of the world's most powerful nation Mexico, though faced with economic difficulty,  insists with pride and dignity on its right to freedom of  thought and expression.  On the other hand Canada is now and has been since the  first world war, simply up for grabs. Outside capital is invited in virtually without condition and Canadians seem,  only to crave that enough crumbs will be spilled from the  international feasting on their resources to keep their  stoves in winter fuel.  A Canadian journalist noted recently that when Prime  Minister Mulroney was a boy soprano he always was asked  to sing for the president of the Iron Ore Company when  that Chicago-based gentleman visited Baie Comeau.  Could it be that little has changed except the deepening of  the Mulroney voice? Maybe if we just sing sweetly enough  those rich folks to the south will be nice to us.

Any amount of  schooling was better than none. If working at farming, fishing, or logging kept the young student away from school for all but a few weeks of  the year, what was learned during those few weeks was so much the  more significant Reading, writing, and arithmetic were realities at the  turn of the century; they were implements just as important to the operation of farm, business, or trade as were tools or goods. The working  class of the early 1900's often unabashedly looked to the middle class for  its values. Parents knew that the son's only opportunity would probably  lie in the labour market, but they strove to give him skills that could be  used if a chance for something better were to come along. The daughter  would in all probability marry a labourer; but, if at all possible, she was;  given lessons in art or music, refinements that would make her feel less  out of place among members of a class above her birth. The products of  these frontier homes and schools comported themselves rather well by  and large, in later years, sometimes scarcely discernible among a less,  "deprived" citizenry.  Stranby, Northern Vancouver Island, 1914. Teacher Dolly Bragg with  children of the Lock wood and Shuttleworth families. Caption by L.R.  Peterson  Musings  The cat came back  John Burnside  We were walking down the  boardwalk in Puerto Vallarta  last week when the conversation  turned to cats.  "Did I ever tell you about the  most remarkable cat I ever owned?" I asked.  "I'd have about a fifty-fifty  ' chance of guessing, wouldn't  I?" said Fran, assuming that I  was about to wax eloquent  about the two very fine cats we  presently own.  "Not so," said I, and proceeded to describe for her the  cat I called Fidele Catstro to the  delight of my children years ago  when they were small in Fernie,  B.C.  "Fidele wandered into our  house in September of 1968. We  didn't want a cat and didn't encourage her but she was very  beautiful and hung around, catching grasshoppers to sustain  herself, I remember, which really impressed me for she wasn't  much more than six or seven  weeks old."  "What was she like?" I could  tell that Fran wasn't vitally interested so I restricted any further rhapsodizing to a simple  description.  "She was a beautiful white,  fluffy Persian cat with an incredible striped raccoon tail.  There were two little dark  marks just between her ears.  She was the most magical cat I  ever saw," and there we left it.  Fidele had persevered, winning over my three children then  aged about five, four and two,  and so it was when we moved  from Fernie to Gibsons in June  of 1969 Fidele came with us with  a litter of kittens in the back of  our red and white Rambler station wagon.  For reasons too tedious to  dwell on, the independent cat  decided to leave the residence  on Franklin Road in Gibsons  which first gave us shelter on  the Sunshine Coast and for two  years the whereabouts of the  spectacularly marked cat, or  whether she lived or not, was a  mystery.  My then six-year old son  Stuart came in one day and said  he had seen her. I was skeptical  but investigation proved him  right; the unmistakable cat was  queen of the Lepage residence  on Burns Road. She gazed at us  aloofly from the Lepage window sill and that was that for  Fidele Catstro.  On the day of our return  from Mexico last week I went  home for the first time in 23  days, about 11:30 in the morning after a stop-over at the,  Coast News. I pushed open the  back door and stared in  disbelief at the cat that stretched  and hopped down from the  window ledge where it had been  sunning itself. It was a cat I had  not seen in more than a dozen  years, the self-same cat which  had come with me from Fernie  almost 16 years ago  - Fidele Catstro - but how did  she come to be in my kitchen in  Roberts Creek at the end of  January 1985?  We pieced it together swiftly.  My friend and co-worker  Dianne Evans was house-sitting  for us while we were away and  had brought with her, her cat  which she had found living  wild, two thirds of the way up  Sechelt Inlet, 10 years ago. She  had persuaded the cat to give  people another try and it had  been her inseparable companion  ever since.  Apparently the Lepages had  taken the cat, a superb mouser,  up to a logging camp on the in  let and an accident with diesel ;  fuel had frightened her into tak- ���  ing to the wild. ��  I know there will be no dearth ���  of skeptics but I believe without -  shadow of a doubt that the cat -  knew me as surely as I knew '.  her. I phoned my daugher, the ".  mother of my grandtwins, in :  Colorado with the news of the :  magical second re-appearance ;  of Fidele Catstro long after we ���  could have believed her alive. It ;  was as though we had all been ;  transported magically back- \  wards to the time of their '-  childhood. v  Fidele Catstro had done it ;?���;  again. \z  More than ever she was the^  most remarkable cat I'd ever-^  known. ':  Pied Beauty  Glory be ro God for dappled things���  For skies of couple-color as a brindled cow;  For rose-moles all in stipple upon trout that swim;  Freshfirecoal chestnut-falls; finches' wings;  Landscape plotted and pieced���  fold, fallow, and plow;  And all trades, their gear and tackle and trim.  All things counter, original,-spare, strange;  Whatever is fickle, freckled (who knows how?)  With swift, slow; sweet, sour; adazzle, dim;  He fathers forth whose beauty is past change:  Praise him.  Gerald Manley Hopkins  Mary anne' s    viewpoint  A questionable timetable  by Maryanne West  I'm not sure whether the forthcoming forums to be held in  Pender Harbour, Sechelt and  Gibsons to discuss the School  Act and how it should be  brought up to date, are focusing  only on administration and  organization or whether it is an  opportunity to include a wider  look at education itself.  I don't think you can  separate the two. Surely how we  understand education and how  it meets the needs, not only of  the children, but of the whole  community will determine how  the Act itself takes shape.  It would seem an opportune  time to initiate such a discussion, but I'm a little surprised at  the government's timetable,  unless of course they've already  made up their minds and this is  just a public relations exercise.  Let's hope not.  Perhaps when they receive  public input they'll realize it's  not a simple cut and dried issue,  but one which may become an  ongoing discussion.  A Gallop poll taken in the  U.S. in 1982 found that there  was agreement from every major group questioned that  "America's strength in the  future will depend more upon  developing the finest educational system in the world than  on developing the best industrial  system or the strongest military  force" and the former education secretary T.H. Bell is  quoted "Education is so special  that it ranks in priority  alongside and possibly ahead of  the Department of Defense".  That in my opinion doesn't  mean that we just have to pump  more money into the present  system, a system which evolved  for a world and society which  has changed and is changing so  dramatically that the system is  showing signs of an inability to  cope with all the demands put  upon it. Perhaps we should instead be thinking about a whole  range of new approaches.  The stable world of secure  employment for almost  everyone with opportunities for  advancement in one's chosen  field, has almost disappeared  and is rapidly being replaced by  a world in which nothing is  predictable. It becomes hard to  plan ahead and there are few  jobs available, particularly in  what used to be called smoke  stack industries. Old industrial  plants cannot compete and new  ones are automated needing only half the workforce. Advancement in any discipline may be  summarily terminated by new  technology.  So it will seem that the basis  for any educational system will  have to be flexibility with as  wide a spectrum of opportunities for acquiring skills and  following up interests as possible.  It's difficult to get a handle  on what ideas the government  has, but if education is to meet  the needs of the widely diversified communities in B.C. it  will have to be based on local  autonomy and decision making.  A few thoughts off the top of  my head: we might develop the  Community School concept to  include a continuing 12-month  program, not only for children  but for the use of the whole  community. Job sharing and  part time jobs will become the  norm unless we are to have vast  numbers of unemployed, so it  may be more practical to offer a  wide choice of learning opportunities at a community education centre where adults and  children are free to come and  go.  It sounds a little chaotic if  you're still thinking in terms of  rows of desks and kids all learning the same thing at the same  time, but that isn't really the  most effective way of learning  nor of teaching.  Obviously strange ideas such  as this will need more thought  than can be given at these public  meetings, but education will  have to be an ongoing discussion and with the opportunity to  try out different approaches.  We can't afford to let education  plod along still trying to serve  an industrial age which has long  gone. Coast News, February 4,1985  3.  Editor:  I would like to take this op-  ,   portunity to publicly respond to  Mr. Caldwell's statements as  j reported in your paper.  s I find it astonishing that a  ;> parent can be blithely recom-  | mending that we return to con-  �� ditions- extant at the end of the  < 1800's, as we approach the end  > of the 1900's. We can obviously  ;>cut education costs ad absur-  Cdam; perhaps we should pur-  ; chase an Expo pavilion, put all  v the students of the Coast in it,  j; provide a teacher for every 30  I; students,   and   presto!   cheap  > public education.  > The issue must surely be what  ; quality of public (for all the  ; public) education system do we  ; want in our civilization. It is  'strange that our society has insisted that teachers and other  ^educators attend university for  �� several years, receive specialized  ^training, and devote their full  'energies to the business, art and  ^science of education. When  ; these trained and experienced  ��� people begin to make suggestions concerning education,  Ithey are immediately reviled  land accused of being militant,  ;self-centred, child haters.  ��� When parents, trustees,  superintendents and teachers all  start saying the same thing, then  perhaps, just perhaps, there is  something to be concerned  about, especially as the vast majority are decent law abiding  citizens, the majority of whom  voted for, this government.  The pay issue raised by Mr.  Caldwell must also be carefully  examined. Teachers are facing  their fourth year of no pay  raise, resulting in a 20 per cent  reduction in their purchasing  power. No other employee  group has done this; every other  group working for the government have received pay raises!  Because one works in the service  of public education, must we be  the only ones to make continued  economic sacrifices to support  it, sacrifices above and beyond  those made by any other group  in the province?  The teachers are not seeking a  3 per cent pay raise this year.  They have been awarded a 3 per  cent pay raise for the 6 months  from January to June, by final  and binding arbitration. This  award was made by the  Honourable E.D. Fulton, the  government appointed arbitrator for this district. He was  bound by law to give paramount consideration to this  school board's ability to pay,  and to the reality of restraint.  After this, he awarded a 3 per  cent raise.  Moreover, arbitrators for 61  school districts, also awarded  similar raises for the teachers, a  tremendously powerful statement that teachers have had  their wages unfairly restricted  compared to all other  employees in B.C.,' and that  they  should   receive  a   small  recompense to begin to redress  this imbalance.  Having visited the Expo '86  site on a field trip, as encouraged to by the government circular  sent to every school in this  district, it is apparent that this  exposition will indeed be a  cultural marvel, a triumph of  the B.C. Spirit! However, I  could not help but look at the  gigantic model displayed in the  pavilion, and see my legitimate  pay raise, see closed hospital  beds, see the crowded and increasingly dirty classrooms, and  begin again to wonder at our  society's priorities.  The Roman Emperors had  their games while millions were  slaves; we have Expo '86, but  do not be surprised if some of  us object to slavery.  Bert Slater  Discrimination in pensions  Ike BwtW!

It should  have been given to spouses over  age 60 as well.  I realize this increase was due  to legislation of the previous  Liberal government, but certainly your government should  have been able to see the unfairness of that type of legislation, and done it the right way,  by giving it to all those over age  60 as well. Spouses under age 60  can in most cases, usually work,  but spouses over age 60 are  often not able to work due to  age discrimination or health  problems.  A case in point is my wife  Ruby, who is 74 years of age,  and never worked out of our  home, in order to be eligible for  the CPP. However, she has  worked very hard for 58 years  taking care of her spouse,  children, and home - why this  discrimination of justice??  Housewives should be entitled to pay into the CPP as well,  so that when they are forced to  retire, they too can have a decent, normal standard of living.

In 1976 this cheque was-$31.81, and it is now  down to $18.81. It is certainly a  misnomer to call this GAIN  when it is nothing but a LOSS.  I want a detailed explanation  from you why this has been  allowed to happen, especially  during these years of inflation.  The prices for rent, groceries  and ICBC car insurance, are  still going up, not down. The  people of this province* have  been discriminated against just  grossly, so that Premier Bennett  can have his "Expo '86".  Why are we not allowed the  $50 increase as the single pensioners? If you feel it is too late  to change the legislation now,  why do you not allow us some  -relief with rents? For instance,  if I have to pay $400 per month  for a two bedroom apartment,  as we do here, your ministry  could allow us a 50 per cent rental allowance. There is not  enough subsidized low rental  housing in Castlegar for pensioners, so we have to pay high  rents too.  When the Right Honourable  Brian Mulroney was in Nelson,  B.C., on August 24, 1984,  speaking at Lakeside Park, he  stated that if he was elected, he  would see to it that every pensioner in Canada would receive  a special Christmas bonus. We  have not as yet received it, -  which Christmas did he mean??  R.C. Rhodes  Castlegar, B.C.  Coverage lacking  Editor:  I was quite disappointed with  the coverage given by the local  papers concerning the most recent educational meeting of the  school board.  Though the different papers  highlighted different parent  briefs concerning the cutbacks  in monies available for schools,  Ties to  home  Editor:  Enclosed my cheque in the  amount of $32 which I presume  will continue my subscription  for another year as I see it is  now due.  I am pleased to say the Coast  News is my tie to my home  town as well as my old school  friends who still flourish on the  Sunshine Coast.  Who would have guessed in  the early 30's that Wally Peterson would become mayor or  that his kid brother Norm (I  think we nicknamed him Win-  no) would later follow as an  alderman or that elder brother  Les would be a good high  school teacher and historian.  On a sadder, note the passing  of Dora Benn, widow of Teddy  Benn along with his great horse  "Sandy" who could pull any  old car from a ditch, or clear  land of stumps with ease at the  sweep arm of old Andy  Wilander's homemade stump  puller.  The Coast News itself warrants praise from the day it  started in the old building on  the waterfront which used to be  Coles Meat Market. From its  infancy it has been a warm and  left of centre paper in policy so,  just once in awhile, to satisfy a  lifelong Liberal, why not a more  middle of the road editorial  once in awhile?  Twenty-five years ago, Vancouver's largest newspaper said  in a little fill-in paragraph on  the editorial page "The official  marriage of the Liberal Party of  Canada and the CCF has been  going on since 1957". Humour  me.  Dick Kennett  Port Moody, B.C.  neither paper offered significant  commentary on what I believe  was an important part of the  meeting���the educational  report of the management committee.  For almost an hour, members  of; the. West Sechelt staff  presented to the school board  and the audience, a brief look at  the "stuff" of education in our  school. Our report discussed  aspects of our testing program,  our research skills program and  our approach to learning  assistance. In each of these  reports, my staff pointed out  factors which we see as unique  to our school and yet consistent  with district and provincial curriculum and policy.  This .report was based on  what we are doing for the  education of students in West  Sechelt���not what we can't do,  not what we won't do and not  what we believe children will  miss, due to restraint. We were  reporting on things that we see  as important to children today  in our school and the things that  we, as professionals, do to improve our knowledge of the curriculum and our teaching  methodology.  My feeling after reading your  reports was that news is what  may be perceived to be exciting  and/or controversial. As I said,  though your papers took som-  what different slants to two very  brief presentations in a five  minute segment of the agenda,  it was clear to me that your  reporters have ascribed to the  viewpoint of the provincial  press���that the politics of  education is more newsworthly  than education itself.  Robert Cotter  Principal  West Sechelt elementary school  Editors Note: Mr. Cotter apparently feels the role of the  newspaper is to report faithfully  on public relation exercises  which redound to his credit.

The same point was made in  the skits put on by the volunteer  firemen in the gym afterward.  How will you get out of your  bedroom if the door is blocked  by fire? The window, of course,  but those who sleep in rooms  without windows had  something to discuss with their  parents.  Chief Mulligan said the  presentation went well but the  success of the project to increase  fire safety awareness can only  be measured by how much information the kids took in and  told their parents.

The final  draw, May 19, offers 16 prizes:  $1,000, five $50 'Expoasis Fun  Certificates and 10 top-brand  fishing rods and reels. Odds on  winning a lottery prize: 18 to 1.  The derby takes place May 18  and 19 with 28 prizes for  fishermen and the 'armchair'  numbered partners, ranging  from $5,000 to $100.  "It's a great idea" commented Glover. "For $10, you  get 5 chances to win 217 lottery  prizes plus a chance at the big  derby money, whether you fish  or not!"  The Salmon Shark idea,  launched at the Aquaculture  Conference last November, is  designed to offer sports  fishermen an alternative to  salmon���which could be severely restricted in future���and  allow our tourism fishing industry to continue thriving.

Gibsons 886-7359  CD Coast News, Februarys 1985  -In Memoriam-  Norman Hough  Norman Hough, a resident of  the Gibsons district from 1948  to 1970, died in Vernon October  12 last.  When Norman and Alice  Hough retired in 1970 from  their dairy farm on Pratt Road,  they moved to Vernon and led  almost as busy a life as they had  in Gibsons.  "He was usually up at 5 a.m.  and often went away for a walk  about the city before  breakfast," his daughter,  Doreen, says.  He came to know the  farmland between Vernon and  Chase as he often travelled with  the veterinarian, Dr. Clapp, as  his volunteer assistant. In earlier  years in Gibsons, Norman  Hough had been the unofficial  vet - he had a special skill in  handling animals.  Besides making leather  bridles in this spare time, he  revived his skill in italic handwriting to give his grandson  Harold in Falkland, lessons in  the art. And he encouraged and  assisted granddaughter Heidi in  showing her sheep at the PNE  and other fairs.  Born at Wilmcote, Stratford-  on-Avon, England, in 1906,  Norman emigrated to a Saskatchewan farm in 1927. In 1931  he moved to Birtle, Manitoba,  where he built up a substantial  WHEN BEING  YOUR BEST  MEANS  LOOKING  YOUR BEST  ...WE'RE  HERE TO  HELP.

The family sold  this ranch in 1948 when they  came to the Sechelt Peninsula at  first to visit but soon to stay.  It was in Birtle that Norman  and Alice, a schoolteacher, met  and married, and where their  children were born. Mel, now a  beef producer in Falkland and  Doreen, Mrs. K. Stewart, of  Chaster Road.  Norman's job at a sawmill on  Porpoise Bay ended in injury  after only a few months, and he  and his wife turned to fanning  again with the purchase of the  oldKullander place - a 10 acre  parcel on Pratt Road. Over the  years the 10 acres expanded to  80 and became the large dairy  farm so many of us vividly  remember.  When he retired in 1970 the  dairy operation was closed, and  the land sold to Montreal Trust  for subdividing into hobby  farms. Quality Farm and  Garden Supply now uses the  former dairy barn and the milk  room. The former Hough family home is still in use.  "Mel and I delivered milk  before school as far away as  Hopkins Landing," Doreen  says, "but in later years  customers called at the diary for  their milk. We always had a  waiting list of customers."  Doreen adds, "The hard part of  dairying was to find the 60 to 70  tons of hay the herd needed  each year. We had to find it all  locally, too."  Norman Hough served on the  school board for 10 years during the time Anne Burns served  as secretary-treasurer. "He was  always proud of the certificate  of service to the school board  that the other members  presented to him." In those  years he often took Hunter's  Water Taxi to meetings on  Gambier or Bowen, and flew in  small planes to places like Vancouver Bay school.  Norman and Alice Hough  found Vernon a most suitable  place for their retirement - the  amenities of a small city, and  farms and farmers to talk to  almost within walking distance,  and two lovely grandchildren  only a short drive away.  In his years in Gibsons, Norman was a member of Mt.  Elphinstone Chapter of the  Masonic Order, and of Miriam  Lodge in Vernon. He was also a  member of Job's Daughters. He  was a life member of the Trail  Riders Club and was long  associated with the 4-H Calf  Club.  "I don't think he had ever  been a hospital patient in his life  until this last brief illness," says  Doreen.  Many of us fondly remember  the Hough Dairy and the  friendly, practical man who ran  it.

Everyone is welcome, the  show is suitable for teenagers, it  is not supporting or knocking  pornography but pointing out  the difference in the way it is  presented.  There will be a discussion  period after, with coffee served. Sounds like an interesting  evening, about a 40 minute  show.

PLANT SALE  The Welcome Beach Corn-  Please turn to page 10  Absences despite columnist  by Ruth Forrester, 885-2418  ONLY SOMETIMES  Sometimes there's a Half-  moon Bay column and  sometimes there's no such item  to be found. It's not that yours  truly doesn't sit down faithfully  by the old typewriting machine  and pour forth words of  wisdom and essential local announcements. This task is performed without fail except for  holidays, but occasionally some  wee gremlin decides to get into  the act around the news office  and for some unknown reason  it seems to choose the old Half-  moon Bay section on which to  play tricks by making said column completely disappear from  the face of the earth. Oh well  - we'll keep on trying and extend apologies to those who  should  have  been  mentioned  last week, like the hospital auxiliary meeting for Monday and  the Writers' Forge Reno night  which is by now a thing of the  past. With that off my chest I  will proceed with current affairs.  WELCOME BEACH  COMMUNITY  By now most of you will have  received your report of activities  of the Welcome Beach Community Association with announcements of coming events.  But for those of you who were  missed here is a rundown of  what you can look forward to in  the next few months.  First of all, be sure to keep  Saturday, February 16 in mind  for the Valentine dinner and  dance at the hall. There will be  live music by Paul Hansen at  the organ and a very delicious  family type dinner will be serv-  NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING  Pursuant to Section 720 of the Municipalise! a.EufcLlicHearing  will be held to consider the following bylaw of UxeTowntT3f^  Gibsons: ^"\  "Town off Gibsons Zoning Bylaw No. 500, 1985"  It is the intent of Bylaw No. 500 to replace the current Zoning  Bylaw No. 350 for the Town of Gibsons.

To regulate the size, shape and siting of  buildings and structures within each zone.

R. Buchan  MUNICIPAL PLANNER & APPROVING OFFICER  ed. Admission is a mere $5 per  person for those who help out  with the dinner and the charge  will be higher for those unable  to contribute.

Give Eileen Greaves a  call at 885-3926 or Marion Ter-  rilon at 885-5270 for reservations and information. The support of all members and friends  will be essential to make this the  usual successful and happy  social event.

The date is also set for the annual plant sale at the hall and  this will be April 6, so get cracking on setting out your garden  or house plants as soon as possible.  Word is that the Monday  afternoon carpet bowling sessions may be in danger of having to be cancelled unless there  are a few more people to join in  these fun afternoons. Where  else can you have a couple of  hours of good fun and friendly  competition for only two bits!'  One o'clock on Mondays is the  time and it would save the day if  a few more of you would turn  out.  HEART FUND  A reminder that some help is  still needed for the fund raising  campaign for the local branch  of the Canadian Heart Foundation. Fay Hansen is the lady to  call if you are willing to lend a  hand. The number is 885-3575.  THANKS  The Beavers and Brownies of  Halfmoon Bay would like to express their appreciation for the  great response to their bottle  drive - it was the best yet and the  kids all say a big thank you.  Talking of the kids - those  who attend the Halfmoon Bay  school are sure lucky to have  such an imaginative staff who  go out of their way to make  school an interesting as well as  fun school to attend. On  February 8 they will be  celebrating their hundredth  school day of the term. Each  child has to bring a hundred objects of their choosing to school,  and all day long they will be  working with hundredths and  multiples of same. Fun as well  as educational.

Film at  Arts Centre  The 1983 film Heart like a  Wheel is a stirring film around  the real-life figure of Shirley  Muldowney,  a top American  racing car driver who managed  to crack this most exclusive of  male-dominated   sports   and  achieve   championship   status.  Shirley    Muldowney    is    a  working-class    hero.    She  represents the American longing  for daring, danger and escape,  the belief that we can become  'someone'. Fast-paced, action-  packed, and shot through with  songs from two decades, Heart  Like a Wheel is pure adrenalin.  Arts   Centre,   Wednesday,  February 6 at 8 p.m. Adults  $3.50.

PHSSGRADSATSFU  Congratulations to former  Pender Harbour student Susan  Wilkinson. She qualified for the  President's High School Entrance Scholarship from Simon  Fraser University at the end of  grade 12 last June, and, having  successfully completed her first  semester, has formally received  the award. Susan follows two  other PHSS grads at Simon  Fraser: Barb Szabados, now in  her third year, and Riccoh Tal-  ento, in his fourth year. Riccoh  distinguished himself  academically and received  several major awards. We can  be proud that of the six recent  grads who went on to university, five are still working hard  and earning good grades. More  proof of the good things done  by Pender people!

You can help deserving local  students by contributing to the  Pender Harbour and Egmont  Bursary Fund. Thanks to the  hard work of Marlene  Hillhouse, the fund now has an  income tax number so that your  contribution is tax-deductible.  Call Marlene, Shelly Kattler or  Iris Griffith for details.  EDUCATION FORUM  The Parents' Committee of  Madeira Park elementary will  hpld a general meeting on  Wednesday, February 6 at 7:30,  to view a special videotape from  the ministry of education,  "Let's Talk About Schools",  and to complete an inventory of  school services. All parents and  interested people are urged to  attend, particularly parents of  pre-school children.  POILUCK SUPPER  By popular demand, parents  and students of Pender Harbour secondary will hold a  "Gym, Swim and Supper" on  Wednesday, February 13. The  fun starts with games in the gym  at 4, a swim from 5 to 6, with a  potluck supper at 6.  Last fall's event was great  fun, especially for. those of us  who hadn't played volleyball  for a long, long time! Parents of  secondary students, please note  that report cards were issued on  Friday. If you didn't receive  one, start making enquiries.  LET1 STALK  ABOUT SCHOOLS  Immediately following the  potluck supper at Pender Harbour secondary, a public forum  on schools, their goals, funding  and future, will be held for  EVERYONE concerned about  education. Mr. John Denley  and a special committee will  hear your opinions. This is the  first of four such public  meetings in our school district,  paid for directly by the ministry  of education. Parents, be on the  lookout for a special pamphlet  that your children will be bringing home. Other interested people could pick up relevant  literature at either school office  during school hours.  Let's show the rest of the  Sunshine Coast how to turn out  and state our opinions on this  vital issue, Wednesday,  February 13, at 7:30.  BRIDGE HISTORY  Thanks to everyone who has  given me information on the  Canoe Pass bridge and life in  the Harbour before it was built.  I am working on it, and hope to  have a story next week. The  trouble is, there is so much happening in Pender Harbour that I  never get a chance to fit it in.  Don't dump, donate  program helps locals  The Unemployment Action  Centre's Don't Dump-Donate  service has been a great help to  many residents on the coast. We  appreciate your concern and  generosity with donations to  date. The demand for furnishings is exceeding the supply.  So we urge you to check your  garage or basement for articles  that are just gathering dust.  Some of these needs are: 5  couches; 4 kitchen tables &  chairs; 1 double bed; 2 dressers;  pots & pans; dishes; cutlery;  towels; blankets; electrical appliances. We can use just about  anything but these items are  most pressing. A truck is also  needed for delivering and pick  ups. If you can donate one or  are willing to accept small monthly payments or, can trade for  whatever we have here, call Ron  at 886-2425.  Donations of wood are needed to build shelves in order to  enhance our clothing exchange  area. These materials need not  be in perfect condition.  by Ann Cook, 883-9167  COMMUNITY NEWS  Here it is Febeairy,  Febrooary or Febooary,  however you say it I call it the  Heart Month. That makes me  think of Annabelle Antilla  883-2633; she's the lady who is  looking for canvassers in this  area for the B.C. Heart Foundation. Be a heart fund  volunteer - someday YOUR  heart may thank you. There  must be someone in Egmont,  Earls Cove or Ruby Lake who  will volunteer to canvass this  area.  MIXED POOL  Mixed pool anyone? Be at the  Backeddy Wednesday evening 8  p.m. The pool table hasn't been  as busy as last winter, so there  can't be any pool sharks  around; that should add to a  fun evening.  FIRST AID  Dear Linda Curtiss, we  haven't forgotten you and your  concern for our area regarding  first aid. We are working on it,  on Egmont time! For Egmont  folks who were not at that  meeting we are looking for Egmont residents interested in taking the industrial first aid  course.  A few have shown an interest  but of course money and  transportation are holding them  back. If that's your reason,  come to the school and let's talk  about it; remember where  there's a will there's a way.  SCHOOL  I told you I would remind  you to come to the school  Wednesday, February 6 at 3:30;  both John and Don will be there  for the school society meeting.  Notice that first name business;  that's just how well we are getting to know John Denley and  Don Fairweather.  The school society meetings  aren't just for the parents of the  school children, they are for  everyone concerned, grandparents, school taxpayers,  aunts, uncles and the couple  down the road. Come and get  the facts and have your say.  Don and John are easy to talk  to and easy to listen to and  understand.  School business is  everybody's business. Help our  children get the best education  possible as one day they will be  the Dons and Johns���the people we must trust.  HEALTH  Health is also everybody's  business. My way of thinking is  that if I am not well and healthy  somebody is going to have to  help me to take care of myself,  and I like to be independent.  For a start, think about taking  care of your heart. That means  exercise; walking is the best exercise for any age. Another  BEST is a fitness class and we  have one happening right here  in the community hall every  Monday and Thursday at 7  p.m. Do your heart and heart  throb a favour, get in shape; she  doesn't like your spare tire any  better than her own. Don't  worry about anyone showing  you up, as Diana encourages us  to go at our own pace so there's  no competition.  BITS AND PIECES  Thanks to all the people who  have saved postage stamps.  Every little bit helps to fight  cancer.  Reminder, Egmont clinic day  is the second Tuesday of each  month. That's the twelfth of  this Heart month.  The Backeddy, Fritz Family  Restaurant in Earls Cove, Ruby  Lake Restaurant, Gulf Service  Station, Harbour Video or B &  J Store in Halfmoon Bay are  the places to buy a ticket for $1. _���.  That will give you one of three '  chances to win a $150 shopping  spree at IGA in Madeira Park  put on by Pender Harbour  Lioness Club.  Shine up your dancing shoes;  there's going to be an Egmont  wedding party, as soon as we  can confirm we have a bride  and groom to attend.

Sometimes we seem to live on  nothing but Toad in the Hole or Macaroni &. Cheese for months and then I break off in a completely different direction  and we live on exotica like Fondu Bourguignonne and  Ratatouille. After a while my conservative family complain.  "Can't we have some food you haven't messed about with?"  they plead. I usually appease them with roast beef���so that I  can mess about with some obscure Chinese dish with the left  overs!

One of the services we saw publicize^ in The Sun  was a grocery phone order and delivery service. This, of  course, was not being offered by the established self-serve  supermarkets but by a franchised operation, with delivery  costs added.  I remember years ago most food stores, including large  ones, particularly the department stores that carried  groceries, would take phone orders and deliver. Gradually  the Cash and Carry trend eliminated these services as being  too costly. The food market of today prefers customers to  shop personally. In this way they shop the store where they  get to choose from a broad selection of foodstuffs, including  a continuous stream of new items.  t y  WOODEN SALAD BOWL  These ever popular woven wood  bowls make great fruit or salad  bowls. Regular price $1.99.  SPECIAL  PURCHASE  PRICE  $1.09  There is a need, however, to serve people who for various  reasons either can't or don't want-to go out. We know this by  the kind of calls we get from time to time.  The Homemakers of Human Resources and the Sunshine  Coast Community Services with their volunteers provide ex  cellent service to the extended care patients and many others  needing transportation and help. We see them in the store  almost daily,���but I have a feeling that there are a lot of people, not in these categories, or even simply indisposed, who  might like to have the benefit of a phone order service and  delivery.  Our business is slightly ahead of last year, and the year  before, but costs keep escalating, particularly those over  which we have no control.  So do let us hear from you. If there is any way in which we  can extend services to be mutually beneficial we want to do  so. A phone call would be nice, but if you are serious a letter  would be even better.  P.S. Please do not remove grocery carts from our premises  unless you undertake to return them promptly. The ocean  claims too many. We fished three out again yesterday. Usually it's a total loss, and they don't come cheap. We ask the  support of our customers on this major problem.  "REAL WIN"  K.L.D.

Balloon in a one-act play performed by Sun-  coast Players last week in Roberts Creek.  -John Bumrfdt photo  Gibsons Library booming  by George Cooper  Reports given to the Gibsons  Public Library Assocation at  the annual meeting January 28  showed circulation increasing  about 5000 each year since  1982, the reference section  abuilding, and the juvenile section thriving both in its circulation and story-time sessions.  Book borrowings in 1984  were around 28,000, Bernadette  Buhrkall the librarian last year,  reported. The magazine racks  contain such publications as the  National and Canadian Geographies, Consumer Reports,  Stereo Review, The Beaver, and  Equinox. Some of these are  donated and others subscribed  to out of library funds. Attendance at the story-time reaches  as high as 22 a session in the  juvenile section librarian, Gail  Reimer reported.  In its reference section the  library stocks copies of all current provincial regulations and  acts. As well there are books on  biography, music, animals and  birds, and sets of encyclopedia.  Last year the board saw that  the service was making far too  heavy a demand on its loyal  volunteers. The voluminous  task of selecting, ordering at the  best prices, and cataloguing required some paid clerical  assistance. Gibsons council has  agreed in this view and in the  1985 provisional budget has  granted $5000 to the Library  Association to provide 15 to 20  hours weekly for a clerk.  Volunteers, as they have been  doing the years past, will continue in much needed service at  the circulation desk, and of  course, the librarian will remain  a volunteer service. Pam  Feichtner, temporarily librarian  again after serving in 1983, says  the position is still very much a  volunteer one and she would  Tuesday     T"^r~���-  lb"** 1.30.4^  not consider it to be anything  else.  Pam pointed out the valuable  assistance that the provincial  Library Services Branch provides community libraries, in  the way of training in librarian-  ship, a consulative service as  near as the telephone, and  special loans of large print  books, and books in other  languages. Our main service is  still our circulation of fiction  and other recreational reading,  Pam said.  Grants in 1984 were $7005  from the Provincial Library  Services Branch, $1850 from  Gibsons, and $1800 from the  regional district. Other income:  memberhips, $1250; fines and  donations $734.05; book sales,"  an average of $300 for the two  sales in 1984 and sales in  previous years.  If you have a mind to donate  money to the library, you can  now get a receipt for an income  tax deduction from them. A  worthy service to support.  Steve White said the book  sales were a kind of rummage  sale and brought in a little cash  and, more important, new  members. Books sold are those ���  that no one is borrowing and  are culled for the sale to make  way for popular tides.  Members new to the board  this year are Chuck Ashby, Bob  Nygren, and Vera Giesbrecht.  They replace members retiring,  Olive Manton, Ted Henniker,  and Diane Strom. Continuing  on the board are Fred Dowdie,  who was chairman in 1984, Bill  Sneddon Sr., Stu Metcalf, Jean  Mainil, Steve White, and Ken  Barton. Norm Peterson, for  seven years chairman of the  Library Association in Gibsons,  is the Gibsons council representative to the library this year.

CHAMPIONSHIP DOG  SHOW JUDGE H  Bill Walkey of West Sechelt is  now qualified to judge working  dogs of seventeen breeds. Bill  received the results of his exams  back in record time of two  weeks, which is an indication of  how well he did, must have  crossed all his t's etc. as this is  one of the exams where 100 per  cent is needed to pass.  The requirements a person  needs just to get this far are  amazing. There are many prerequisites. One has to have bred  dogs and shown them for 10  years and of course Bill has  been very successful with his  Bull Mastiffs, is Western Director of the Bull Mastiff Club,  and is also associated editor of a  prominent dog magazine.  Following right on the heels  of receiving his judging papers  he has been invited to judge an  important B.C. Dog show in the  fall.  Congratulations   Bill,   and  good luck as you pursue qualifying for the next step up.

At least that  was true in days gone by! But  today's successful writers are  providing guidebooks for those  who would follow in their  footsteps, and your reviewers  have been taking a look at three  of them.  Richard Rohmer, author of  the best-sellers Ultimatum, Exoneration, Balls! and How to  Write a Best Seller, which he  confidently predicts will be a  best seller, too! It is a step-by-  step guidebook on how to proceed from the germination of  the idea for a book to the etiquette for autographing the  final product.  He warns writers to steer  clear of "literary" projects if  they want to produce bestsellers���in Canada, this means a  book with hardback sales in the  10,000 copies bracket���because  although a literary book "frequently sends the critics into  orgasms of unfettered flowery  praise for the author's enormous capabilities,...critics don't  buy books and the people in the  market-place are pretty pernickety when it comes to putting  down hard cash for literary  lollipops". He adds that "many  of the greatest books ever written did not sell at all until long  after their authors were  dead"���which may comfort  one's heirs but hardly puts food  on the table of the author.  Rohmer advises caution in  "the excessive use of street  language, explicit and coarse sex  scenes, and excessive violence",  because the reader should not  be "repulsed or insulted". The  key to the amount to be used,  says Rohmer, is the readership  that the author is aiming at, as  well as the author's own good  taste���or lack of it.  Rohmer's book is written in  the aggressive, super-confident  style that he used to good advantage in his earlier works.  Whether his approach to  writing will work for others remains to be seen, but it's a good  book for stirring up the latent  creative cells.  The Armchair Guide to  Murder and Detection by David  Peat is a much more specialized  "how-to" book: it provides the  would-be detective story writer  with all the procedural information he ever wanted to know but  never had the courage to walk  into a police station to ask.  Peat, a Canadian, gathered  information from Canadian,  American and British police  sources, and since the book has  only been on the market a few  months, most of the data is current.  So for the writer who wants  to know how to give a neutron  Channel  Ten  Wednesday & Thursday  February 6 & 7  7:00 p.m.  Coastal Review  This week we present a wide  variety of topics:  1.

The authors say that these  "tags" were not intended to be  used verbatim as they are merely listed to stimulate the writer's  imagination, but none of them  are copyrighted, so they are free  for the using!

An interesting array of Kevin  McEvoy's prints portrays the  exacting skill of stone  lithography.  W&&S^&IS^^^M  The seven artists from Vancouver which make up the  group show currently at the  Arts Centre, Sechelt were all  selected from the ' large  "Warehouse Exhibition" held  in an' old warehouse in Vancouver last November. There is  no particular unifying theme in  this exhibition, partly because  more than one person chose  who should exhibit and partly  because variety was one of the  criteria of the selectors, so that  local viewers could see a little bit  of some of the different things  being done in the large and increasingly active art scene in  Vancouver.  To be specific, here is a run  down on who and what is in the  show.  Clint Atkinson - had a varied  career (sailor, faller) before studying at the University of Victoria. His huge charcoal drawings which close up look like incoherent scratches and marks,  from a distance become groups  of people leering, grinning,  grimacing. In his "Winter Fun  #2" he gives us the reverse side  of the idealistic holiday ad.  Dennis Walliser, also a social  commentator, gives us a very  appropriate painting for this  particular time of the Meare's  Island crisis with his "That's the  B.C. Spirit", depicting a range  of hills covered with stumps and  a   busy   crew   of   men   and  Concerts planned  Due to the success of the  Countryside Concerts series  completed January 6, two further concerts have been scheduled.  The first, February 11, will  feature Lyn Vernon as soprano  soloist with Bruce Dunn and the  Canada West Chamber Orchestra. The orchestra has 12  professional string players and a  harpsichordist.  The harpsichord will be used  in a stirring piece of music by  Handel which Lyn Vernon will  sing. It will also be used in  Bach's magnificent concerto for  two violins which will feature  the orchestra's first desk  players.  This part of the concert is a  tribute to the three-hundredth  anniversary of the birth of both  Bach and Handel. The orchestra will also play the lovely  Holberg suite by Greig, and a  concerto grosso by Corelli.  This concert will be held in  the gymnasium of Gibsons  elementary school February 11  starting at 8 p.m. Tickets will be  available from the Hunter  Gallery in Gibsons or the Arts  Centre in Sechelt, $10 each.  Details of the other concert,  to be given by classical guitarist  Steven Boswell will be announced later.  machines cutting down the last  tree.  David Ostrem who left Vancouver three months ago to go  to New York, pokes fun affectionately at society sending us  his messages in brilliant colours  from Motown, Cartoonland  and deep in the heart of the fifties-, ..  Paul Howells has always been  interested in wildlife and initially trained as a wildlife officer  but changed his vocation to  study art at the University of  Manitoba*- -His -tjfpfesslonistic*  portrayals of animal subjects  are odes not only to the spirit,  but also to the energy and  mystery of nature.  Sylvia Scott who teaches interdisciplinary arts at the Emily  Carr College of Art and Design  sees the process of art making as  communication, as a way of  understanding the world. Her  collages of fragments of letters  received and sent, of dreams  and small objects which relate  to her experiences at that time,  enforce her statement.  Dianne Radmore is an artist  who uses clay (as in her masks),  natural and man made objects  to create her simple but powerful collages which are like  primitive ikons. Her fascination  for archaeology, anthropology  and primitive art forms shows  in   the   quiet   intensity   she  manages to achieve.  Nancy Boyd works as a  graphic designer, illustrator, architectural renderer but has  spent the last two years concen  trating on painting and is  presently working, on a new  series, again dealing with lost  cultural forms which is the subject of her two pictures in the  exhibition.

Other good scores  Minor hockey  Tremendous support for the  minor hockey executive was exhibited at the January 28  general meeting. Only six people were there at the start of the  meeting which had been promoted for people to express  their complaints and suggestions. The lack of attendance  can only be interpreted as support for the executive for which  they are extremely grateful.  Decisions were made regarding play-offs and the annual  awards night. Fund raising was  prominent in the discussion and  in particular, the upcoming  Bingo night on February 16 at  Roberts Creek, where $2,000 in  prizes will be available. Tickets  may still be purchased from  Marilyn Maclntyre at 886-9827.  Occasionally, people are heard  to make suggestions about  hockey at the arena. In particular, suggestions as to what  part of the anatomy of what executive member can be inserted  into what area. Unfortunately  these people could not make it  to this meeting. Hopefully, they  can come to the annual spring  meeting when elections for new  executive officers will be held.  They will surely be interested in  volunteering for a position.  Through the mist of sorrow, watch for the soft beacons  of friendship to guide you. Your friends, neighbors and  family will support you and help to lead you to comfort and  consolation at the time when you need it most��� We pledge  ourselves to giving you the best assistance possible.

Val Anderson, very aware of  the overwhelming suffering that  has come upon thousands of  B.C. citizens, is committed to  help develop the organization  necessary to have a party with  the will and the means to form  an effective government in  British Columbia.  Startled by the increasing  violence - mental, emotional  and physical that is gripping our  province, he feels the time is  long past for a movement that  works for co-operation and integration. He believes that we  must cease fighting with each  other and instead work together  to overcome the ills of our  society.  He believes that the rural and  urban dwellers must listen  carefully to each other for in the  final analysis each is dependent  on the other. Young and old  must share their common  aspirations for a community  that all can enjoy. Employed  and unemployed must pull  together to create the jobs needed so desperately.  As founding chairman of the  Vancouver Food Bank he  knows that the people of the  community will respond when  challenged.  ' For comments, Val Anderson  may be contacted at 879-3412 or  733-3436.  Medical  hero here  by Reverend Dale D. Peterson  Every Canadian should know  about Dr. Ben Gullison, one of  the great, unsung heroes of this  country. Tom Harper, religion  editor of the Toronto Star, once  described Dr. Gullison as "a  man whose healing work equals  or indeed surpasses that of  Albert Schweitzer and others of  similar renown". At 79, and  still going strong, Dr. Ben  Gullison is the founder and  chief inspiration behind Operation Eyesight Universal. In  recognition of his achievements  and service to the country, Dr.  Gullison was awared the Order  of Canada in 1980.  Since its formation in Calgary  in 1963, Operation Eyesight  Universal, a distinctly Canadian  organization, has been responsible for restoring sight, through  surgery, to over a quarter of a  million babies, children and  adults in 17 developing countries world-wide. More than 1  million people have been saved  from permanent blindness  through the preventive care of  Operation Eyesight's 30 mobile  eye clinics and 40 regular stations or clinics throughout the  Third World.  Operation Eyesight Universal  guarantees that 90 cents out of  every dollar goes directly to this  healing ministry. As an example, a gift of $25 will pay for the  removal of cataracts from both  eyes of a Third World blind person, including food while they  are treated and spectacles  should they need them. Donors  will, in due time, receive a card  naming the person who receives  their sight���specifying their age  and sex, and signed by the  operating surgeon.  Residents of Gibsons and the  surrounding community will  have an opportunity to meet Dr.  Gullison and hear him speak at  a special service to be held at  Calvary Baptist Church, Park  Road, at 7 p.m. on Sunday,  Febuary 10, 1985.  On prisons  Last fall prison chaplain Ted  Cryer visited the Sunshine  Coast and spoke at Bethel Baptist and Gibsons Pentecostal  Church. We will again have the  opportunity to learn from Mr.  Cryer on February 9 when he  returns to present a Saturday  workshop at Bethel.  The workshop is broken  down under the following  headings.  9 to 12: Prison and the  Prisoner, The System, Christians, the Local Church and  Prison Ministry.  12 to 1: Please bring a bag  lunch; coffee and tea will be  provided.  1 to 3: Volunteers, Volunteer  Preparation* Questions and  Answers.  This is no charge for the  workshop and no pre-  registration required. Call  885-3919 for more information.  iiMI^ISEi^lGESS^  rCHAINSAWS  SALES & SERVICE  KELLY'S. LAWN MOWER &  CHAINSAW LTD.

Send your entries to reach the Coast News, Box  460, Gibsons, this week. Last week's winner was Nicole Paradon,  Box 1192, Sechelt who correctly located the statue of Neptune on  Redrooffs Road, Halfmoon Bay.  Ray Skelly, New Democrat  MP from Comox/Powell River,  recently urged the Conservative  government to permit parliament to study the proposed  Canada-U.S. Salmon Interception Treaty before the Mulroney  cabinet ratifies the agreement.  Skelly alluded to the fact that  for years the two governments  have been attempting to  negotiate and come to some  agreement on salmon interception policy. A previous attempt  to ratify a treaty was squashed  by the U.S. Senate after  pressure was applied from  Alaska.  "Now that a treaty has tentatively been agreed upon," said  Skelly, "the minister of fisheries  should allow Canadian  legislators the opportunity to  study the proposal and its implications."  "The U.S. Senate has still to  ratify the agreement and  through this process Amercian  legislators will have an opportunity for input," stated Skelly.  "In Canada there is the probability," said Skelly, "that  there will be no opportunity for  Canadians to have input or for  legislators to study the treaty  and its ramifications on the industry. The Tory cabinet may  simply ratify the proposal and  that will be the end if it."  Skelly noted that many people involved in the west coast  fishing industry have grave  reservations about the treaty.  These include:  The term for some provisions  is too short.  Any salmon enhancement efforts on major Canadian rivers  may simply allow the U.S. the  opportunity to intercept larger  Canadian resources in the  future.  If the Canadian government  ratifies this treaty it will then  have abandoned the principle of  ownership of anadromous  species and ratified the principle  of U.S. access to Canadian fish.  Canadian sovereignty over  the management of Canadian  fish stocks has been compromised by placing management  jurisdiction in the hands of a  joint Canada U.S. management  board.  The U.S. refuses to recognize  equitable Canadian rights to  salmon in Canada-Alaska trans-  boundary rivers.  The U.S. Senate may refuse  to ratify this treaty or may demand changes which would be  even more detrimental to the  west coast fishing industry.  The authority of the joint  Canada-U.S. management  board over fisheries management programs may seriously  disrupt traditional fisheries in  Canada.  "These concerns are far too  serious to be ignored," stated  Skelly, "the treaty and its implication to the fishing industry  in Canada must be studied by  parliament."  ���Skelly said, "The Mulroney  government in its undignified  haste to' ratify the West Coast  Intercept Treaty is simply providing the prime minister with  something to give away when he  meets with American president,  Ronald Reagan in Quebec City  on March 19, 1985."  Is your car begging  for a second chance?  Bird count excellent for 198S  Fully equipped  for all body and  paint repairs  Our coastal Christmas bird  counts are much dependent on  the weather for success in finding both species and numbers  of birds. This year we had excellent conditions in the morning, but rapidly deteriorating  weather in the afternoon with  light rain and poor visibility.  However, most species are  sighted in the morning, so the  weather probably didn't  significantly affect our totals.  All in all it was an excellent  count with six groups covering  our count circle which stretches  from West Sechelt through  Roberts Creek, Gibsons, and  Langdale to Port Mellon. We  managed to find almost all of  the species one would expect on  the Sunshine Coast in the  winter, with the most surprising  miss being Merlin. Other misses  were both Common Murre and  Pigeon   Guillemot���these   two  Human rights  conference on Friday  There will be a conference on  human rights and the peace of  nations, co-sponsored by the  Canadian Human Rights Foundation and Simon Fraser  University, to take place at the  Hotel Georgia, Vancouver, on  Friday, February 8.

Humphrey,  Faculty of Law, McGill University,   former   director,   UN  secretariat, human rights division and president of the Canadian Human  Rights Foundation, who will speak on the relationship between human rights  and peace; Professor F.Q. Quo,  Department    of   Political  Science, Simon Fraser University, (SFU) addressing the question of breaking down the barriers   to   understanding;   Pro  fessor Charles Bourne, Faculty  of Law, Univeristy of British  Columbia, (UBC) who will talk  on individual rights and the  changing character of international law and new political and  legal structures required to pro-  mote the greater . interdependence of human rights  and peace; Betty Zimmerman,  director of Radio Canada International who will talk on the  role of the information media in  relation to human rights and  peace and Dr. Thomas L.  Perry, Professor of Pharmacology, UBC, and member  of Physicians for Social  Responsibility (B.C. chapter)  who will speak on opportunities  open to Canadians to contribute  to the development of human  rights and peace.  The conference will be structured so as to permit maximum  debate amongst participants.  For more information contact Ms Janice Frye, SFU,  291-4565.  Police news  GIBSONS RCMP  The theft of nine cases of two  litre bottles was reported on  January 25. The bottles were  stolen from a storage compound located on Henry Road.  Theft totalled $45.  On January 30, a Pratt Road  resident reported that approximately 25 to 30 gallons of gas  had been syphoned from his  dump truck. The theft could  have occurred between January  28 and 30.  Five merchandisable trees,  four large cedars and a large fir,  were reported stolen on January  31 by the owner of the trees, Ian  McKenzie.  Vandalism was reported on  January 25 from Elphinstone  secondary school. The school's  janitor advised police that $200  worth of damages were incurred  when vandals smashed a window on the west side of the  school.  Shortly after midnight on  January 25, police apprehended  an adult female resident of Gibsons as a result of a motor vehicle   accident   report   received  from the School Road area. The  woman was charged with impaired driving as a result of  police attendance; she was also  charged with possession of a  narcotic when a quantity of  marijuana was found in her  purse.  An adult male passenger of  the car driven by the woman  was taken to St. Mary's  Hospital for treatment of injuries. The driver of the other  vehicle involved in the accident  was not injured.  The woman was just driving  out of the Legion's parking lot  when she hit the other car.  SECHELT RCMP  It was a quiet week for the  Sechelt area. Two break-ins  were reported to police on  January 28; the Bathgate store  in Egmont was broken into during the night and groceries and a  quantity of cash were taken.  A residence located on  Redrooffs Road was broken into. Coins, personal papers and a  watch were stolen.  Childhood course  The Sechelt campus of  Capilano College is offering  two courses in working with  young children, starting  February 8.  The first course involves  developing new creative ideas  for young children through art.  Using art helps children gain  an expanded appreciation of the  world around them. Participants in this workshop will  explore art as a means of self-  expression and creative growth  for children.  This course starts Friday,  February 8, at 8 p.m. and then  runs all day Saturday, February  9, 9 to 4 p.m.  The second course is running  March 8 and 9. It focuses on  understanding the behaviour of  young children. Practical  methods for dealing with antisocial behaviour will be  presented. Again the course  starts on the Friday night and  continues on Saturday.  Each course costs $55. Pre-  registration is necessary. More  information is available at  885-9310, Monday to Friday  after 12:30 p.m. at Capilano  College.  species for the second year in a  row.  I have looked most days for  Common Murre this winter,  but have seen none, so it was  not surprising to miss it on  count day. No Screech Owls  were seen, though T.G. searched in Porpoise Bay Provincial  Park before dawn. The Red  Breasted Nuthatch was missed,  but this species is very erratic on  the coast in winter. Last year  they were quite common all  winter long, but this year they  appear to be totally absent,,  none having been seen since Oc- {  tober.  Every year we add new  species to our all-time CBC list.  This year we added five:  Peregrine Falcon, Ring-Billed*  Gull, Jaeger species, Pygmy  Owl and Common Redpoll.  That brings the all time total to  111.  The bird of the count was undoubtedly the Jaeger seen by  Doug Brown and John Hind-  Smith in Howe Sound. The  bird, though not identified  specifically, would almost certainly be a Parasitic. It is  relatiyely common along our  coast in the fall when it harasses  migrating Common Terns, but  is almost unknown in B.C.  waters in the winter. It was watched for about two minutes  chasing gulls.  Pygmy Owl was predictable  this year as they have been fairly  common in the preceeding  weeks. Two were seen, both in  Gibsons. Peregrine and Ring-  Billed Gull were both expected  to b.�� seen eventually on count  day in our area. The common  RedPolls were seen in mixed  flocks with Pine Siskins in the  Howe Sound area. Pine Siskins  were extremely hard to find in  the Sechelt to Roberts Creek  area but were abundant around  Howe Sound.  Our record to date: 1979, 69  species, 4530 individuals,  weather rain, snow, wind; 1980,  70 species, 5075 individuals,  weather heavy rain; 1981, 84  species, 7419 individuals,  weather clear, cold; 1982, 67  species, 5725 individuals,  weather rain, strong winds;  1983 92 species, 11,795 individuals, weather clear, cold;  1984, 88 species, 7668 individuals, weather clear a.m.,  rain p.m.  Remember dues are due. $10  family, $7.50 individual, $5  seniors.
