 LEGISLATIVE LIBRARY  Parliament Buildings  VICTORIA, B.C.  V8V 1X4  jt   m/a ��7��/    .Lf a  n/.\_s  r  85.4  a   *_�����*_��� aw  ed  by John Burnside  "Our main job is to give you  an opportunity to express your  views," Schools Superintendent  John Denley told approximately  50 people in Pender Harbour  high school last Wednesday  night as the first of four forums  to discuss education was held in  this school district.  Denley explained that all of  the briefs from parents  throughout the province had to  be in the hands of the Provincial  Schools Committee by March  15. The Provincial Schools  Committee must have all briefs  considered before their submission to the government on June  1.  Three briefs were presented at  the meeting held on February  13: Joan Wilson presented a  brief on behalf of the Parents  Committee of Madeira Park  elementary school, president  Brian Butcher presented a brief  on behalf of the Sunshine Coast  Teachers' Association; and Iris  Griffiths of Egmont presented  an individual brief because the  Pender Harbour high school  parents' group had had no time  to consider the brief.  Joan Wilson told the meeting  that there were two main currents in the Madeira Park  parents' brief: "There is  frustration and disappointment  with the brevity of the time  period allowed for these discussions," said Wilson. "The questions concerning schools are too  complex to be answered in one  week or 25 lines, whatever  comes first. We resent this  diversion of our time. As  parents, our concern with  schools is not episodic."  The second of Wilson's  points was 'a clear affirmation  of a public tax-sponsored  system of education'.  "We oppose the emphasis of  the provincial government lately  towards an emphasis on private  schools. We believe that the  quality and integrity of otir  public school system is-the  foundation of democracy."  Wilson urged individual  response to the question of  schools despite the drawback of  the time constraints.  Brian Butcher, speaking on  behalf of the Sunshine Coast  Teachers' Assocation slamrn^  the confrontational tactics-tofc-  the minister of education who7  had 'emasculated school boards  and incensed teachers  throughout the province'. ~    v  Butcher, pointing to the fact  that the minister of education hr  Ontario had recently called for  funding flexibility and increased  local autonomy for schools,  told the meeting that those in  command in B.C. had created  anxiety levels among educators  fpr 'questionable motives'.  '"Just how does the minister  of education have the gall to say  that boards who disagree with  him are abusing the public trust.  That's like the premier telling  us that all who disagree with  him were 'bad British Columbians'," charged Butcher.  Butcher cited a string of  statistics which indicated that  spending on schools in British  Columbia was lower than  . anywhere else in Canada.  \ "We need a review of the  Schools Act," said Butcher,  "but this hopelessly "flawed process is. not it. The sense of  aimlessness in education in this  province tends to promote confusion and- a sense of  hopelessness. What we need is  evolution, not revolution."  Iris Griffiths said that the  current good- relations between  parents and' schools would suffer if the government kept up its  recent policy of surprise announcements concerning  schools.  ��� "These attacks and revisions  are throwing all'involved off  balance," said Griffith. "A  constructive approach would  have given us much more time.  The Schools Act may, in fact,  be already rewritten.''  Griffith expressed herself as  confident that our schools could  respond to the challenges facing  us if local control is allowed and  enough funds are available.  "I don't want my tax dollars  going to schools which have the  right to exclude certain  students," said Griffith and  contended that this district had  a history of innovative education.  "Victoria should give back  the tax base they grabbed from  us. If any school child behaved  like the government we would  say that child was deficient in  social responsibility," said Griffith. .  ���..-  The Egmont resident's brief  concluded with a moving appeal  for education for peace: "We  should be teaching for peace.  We should be teaching our  students how people live. Those  are the topics which we should  be emphasizing, literally for  dear life."  The "Let's Talk About  Schools" forums continue this  week at Chatelech high school  in Sechelt, 7 p.m. Wednesday.  The Sunshine  Published on the Sunshine Coast      25* per copy on news stands     February18,1985      Volume 39      Issue 7  No, it's not a scene from the Beachcombers. Those are real guns and  real policemen. Arrested for questioning in Gibsons Sunday morning  were two young men. The arrests were in connection with the  shooting the day before of a 20-year old man. At press time the man  was described as being in critical condition after surgery in a Vancouver hospital. The shooting took place at 1:34 p.m., Saturday.  Police investigation is continuing.  ���Fred Duncan photo  Budget over Victoria's guidelines  Trustees ask teacher raise  The school board meeting at  Chatelech last week approved a  final draft of the budget with a  couple of alterations.  Figures prepared by  .secretary-treasurer Mills were  divided into four columns for  ihe operating budget; cost  allowable under the fiscal  framework, cost at zero increase in salaries, cost for 1.75  ner cent increase and cost for  the 3 per cent increase awarded  to teachers by the arbitration  board.  Trustee Frizzel opened the  discussion with a motion to increase the budget by IVi per  cent over 1984 in line with the  raise given to MLAs. Both  trustees Stephen and  Fairweather thought the provincial government irresponsible  and that IVi per cent was too  much for anyone at this time.  The motion was defeated 5-2.  Trustees, however, agreed to  base their 1985 budget on a 3  per cent increase putting the  onus on the minister to insist on  further cutbacks. Concern was  expressed that in allowing for a  possible 20 per cent cutback in  secretarial staff that CUPE was  taking the brunt of lay-offs and  it was decided to put the  amount which would be saved  back into the budget.  Trustee Stephen, outspoken  in his condemnation of the provincial government, had his motion to reduce trustees'  honoraria by 20 per cent approved by a vote of four to  three. "Asking everyone else  to take cuts is hypocritical, I'm  outraged by the government,"  Stephen said, "I don't do it for  the money but a 20 per cent  reduction can symbolize that  we're all in it together." The  move was criticized by the  presidents of both CUPE and  the Teachers' Association as  playing into the hands of the  government.  The final operating budget  total of $6,045,300 is $222,900  or   3.7   per   cent   above   the  amount   allowed   by   the  minister's fiscal framework.  The board felt unable at this  time to respond officially to the  government's "Let's Talk  About Schools" and tabled the  issue until March, a decision  which was criticized by STA  president Brian Butcher, who  felt the board should participate  Boommen switch  to fish farming  Half the crew laid off by  Crown Forest at their Goliath  Bay booming ground will be  able to participate in a retraining program, according to  Area A Director Ian Vaughan,  who was speaking at the Sunshine Coast Regional District  meeting on February 14.  "Goliath Bay uses booming  unlike any other in the world,"  said Director Vaughan, so when  you're laid off, and that's all  you've done, it's pretty hard to  get another job."  The   re-training   program,  which has come about through  action by Director Vaughan,  supported by Don Lockstead,  MLA and Ray Skelly, MP, will  teach the boom-men the skills  required to build floats and  tanks for fish farmers. The  boom-men have skills on the  water and are ideally suited to  such employment.  "The scheme wili come to  fruit in a couple of weeks," said  Vaughan, "and already one  farm has said they'll take four  workers, and another one will  take three?'  in the procedures set up by the  government for public input.  Chatelech English teacher  George Matthews reported on  the progress of a five year plan  begun three years ago to  upgrade students ability to write  essays and thus perform well in  government exams. Student  council president Julie Crucil  reported on council activities  and Mrs. Dale Burns, president  of -Chatelech- Parents' Auxiliary, expressed concern for the  quality of student's education  faced by continued cutbacks, of  the loss of the Learning  Assistance teacher and the lack  of a qualified librarian.  Pender wants  cemetery open  A group of more than 40  residents was represented at the  Sunshine Coast Regional  District meeting February 14 by  Al Lloyd, Doris Edwardson,  and Tim Frizzell who made a  presentation to the board asking  its approval to re-open the  Kleindale cemetery.  It is the intention of the group  to form a society to administer  and maintain the cemetery  which lies on two acres of land  on .Highway 101. A letter requesting support from various  local organizations has been  sent puj^  received from  eluding the local chapter of the  United Fishermen and Allied  Workers Union, the Royal  Canadian Legion, Branch #112,  the Pender Harbour Hospital  Auxiliary, the Pender Harbour  Community Club, the Masonic  Club and several churches.  The    Francis   Peninsula  ���cemetery has been 60 per cent  filled and the only alternative is  the Gibsons cemetery, which  lies more than an hour's drive to  the south.  Mr. Patterson, registrar of  cemeteries, of the ministry of  consumer and corporate affairs  is enthusiastic about the proposal, according to Frizzell who  went on to ask if the SCRD  would permit the society to put  people to work in the cemetery  on a volunteer basis.  We've got about 250 working  hours committed,?' said  Frizzell, "We want to. clean out  the brush in the cemetery and  starts wqfk ion': mairiteriance.'*  ;': The^cem^gj^lia^^  to deteriorate somewhat and the  society wishes to put it in proper  . order. . ���'������ ":'" '"';'���';���''.

Area A Director Ian  Vaughan moved that the board  approve the idea in principle, to  help the society in any way required and to also* thank the  volunteers who are prepared to  work in upgrading the site.  The motion was unanimously  carried.  Mrs. Christine Johnson, who died peacefully in St Mary's last week,  was the first mayor of Sechelt 1956-1966.

On a sadder note, however, Mayor Kolibas informed council of the recent passing  of Christine Johnson, Sechelt's mayor from its incorporation in 1956 to 1966. -NwBhcoowayphoto Coast News, February 18,1985  ��Ofe^  Time too short  We agree with those presenting briefs on. B.C. schools  last week who found fault with the ridiculous time constraints set for a discussion about schools.  The education system has been under attack by those,  who are responsible for it at a provincial level ever since  Bill Vander Zalm opened fire a couple of years ago. Now  we have this stage-managed opportunity for public input  just a single month before a provincial deadline and less  than three months before a new Schools Act is expected.  That's not enough time for a decent debate to get started  throughout the province, let alone meaningful and  satisfactory conclusions to be reached.  For the past nine years the provincial government has  been shifting more and more of the burdens of school  costs onto the back of the residential taxpayer. Their sudden announcement that the beleagured residential taxpayer  is to.be allowed to shoulder the burden of more taxes for  schools through referenda is a move designed to make our  schools more unpopular than the Socred propaganda has  already succeeded in making them.  On welfare rates  The councils of both Gibsons and Sechelt have taken a  commendable and decent stand in passing a motion on a  resolution calling for a raise in welfare rates. Unfortunately, the Sunshine Coast Regional District saw fit to defeat a  similar motion despite the fact that it would be an opportunity to show support for the more than 1000 local people  who are presently receiving abysmally low assistance from  MHR.  As has been pointed out before, raising welfare rates is  not the answer to the problem, but it will allow the poor  and the unemployed to maintain some self-respect, a small  measure of hope.  Economists, upon whom the governments of the  Western world have relied for so long are finally realizing  that their theoretical models are woefully unrealistic; there  is no perfect marketplace, people do not behave in totally  predictable ways and consequently economic planning has  been inadequate to accommodate the diversities inherent  in any society.  When we speak of the poor we are speaking of human  beings, most of whom are unhappy about their situations  and would like to work, to be productive, to pay their way.  Society has created the problem, and laying blame upon  the victims of economic mismangement will do nothing  but alienate the poor and create a society as sharply divided as that of nineteenth century England.  Dianne Evans  5 YEARS AGO  On the evening of February 13 the Five Spot, a local  prawn boat hit a deadhead off Gibsons and sank within  its own length.  The Sunshine Coast Regional Board decided almost  unanimously against supplying financial support for a  Teen Task Force for the Sunshine Coast.  Valdy played to two packed houses at the Roberts  Creek Hall last week end in what was called the "Last of  the Five Dollar Concerts".  10 YEARS AGO  Principal Don Montgomery wants Elphinstone to go off  the shift system and back to ��� regular hours next  September. Montgomery feels that the projected enroll--  ment of 830 can be accommodated with the aid of four  rooms in the annex and five portable classrooms.  Provincial Theatre consultant Ray Logie said that it is  tragic that the Driftwood Players have not adequate  facilities locally, given the high quality of theatre that  they produce. Logie was on a recent visit to the Sunshine  Coast.  15 YEARS AGO  The school board has been informed by B.C.  Telephone that the space occupied in the B.C. Telephone  building on North Road will be needed by the phone company by January 1, 1971. New premises will have to be  found by then.  20 YEARS AGO  St. Mary's Hospital co-ordinating council has arranged  to hold its first meeting in St. Mary's Hospital in March.  Clearing has started on the site for the new municipal  hall on South Fletcher Road.  25 YEARS AGO  Roberts Creek Credit Union celebrated its 19th anniversary of service to the community.  Gibsons board of trade has asked council to consider  some sort of control over the indiscriminate use of  fireworks in the area.  30 YEARS AGO  The 35 foot cruiser Anita Joyce was destroyed by fire  while anchored at the southeast corner of Keats Island.  Tony Gargrave, CCF legislative member for this area,  stressed the need during house debates for improvement  of Roberts Creek roads.  35 YEARS AGO  School board trustees have decided to urge the roads  department to see that hills are sanded so the school  buses can operate.  Cost of the new firehall for Gibsons is expected to  reach $1,300.  The Sunshine  CO-PUBUSHEBS ADVERTISING  John Burnside M.M. Vaughan      J.

Bill Scoular and his son Allen were two of the local ings of Madeira Park, who was on his honeymoon at the time.  Musings  John Burnside  The rush to condemn the pay  increase granted themselves by  the members of the legislature is  both predictable and understandable. There is, however, a case  to be made for a contemplative  pause whenever a mass mov-  ment gets underway and  perhaps we would benefit from  just such a pause at the present  time before we rush to condemn.  It has been our contention for  the past three years that the so-  called restraint program touted  by the provincial government  has been an unnecessary and a  cruel sham from the beginning.  The provincial government is  not spending less money than it  did in 1982, it is spending more.  Instead of being spent on  schools and hospitals, however,  it is spending money on the  north-east coal project and on  preparation for Expo '86.  The bashing of public servants with which the restraint  program started was the victimization of a group none too  popular in society which caused  the government to seem to be  grappling with economic woes  which had little to do with  public servants. When that  group of scapegoats had been  exhausted as a progaganda  target government attacks were  shifted to school teachers.  The net result of all these  government assaults on the people of the province has been to  increase the polarization within  the province and cause the drying up of consumer spending.  That pay increase  The mini-recovery experienced  in the rest of Canada was led by  consumer spending. In B.C. the  consumer isn't spending. The  scare tactics of the provincial  government have been all too  effective and the fact that B.C.  languishes at the bottom of the  Canadian economic heap is a  result of excessive government  intervention in the lives of the  people of the province.  If we are to criticize the  MLA's for their increase  without considering the question of need, then we are accepting the Socred view of our current dilemma, which seems to  be that if you just make  everybody suffer badly enough  for long enough then  miraculously everything will be  alright again.  The criticism levelled at Bob  Skelly is particularly unfair. It is  true that Skelly got outmanoeuvred by the premier. I  am sure there was no suggestion  of the MLA's raise going to  Commissioner Ed Peck before  Skelly had committed himself to  support it. No doubt a smart  propaganda move by Bill Bennett.  But surely the question that  must finally be addressed is  whether the increase in tax-free  expenses can be justified. Our  own MLA has to cover a vast  coastal riding with numerous  ferry fares and plane rentals required to get him around his  riding. I believe there is a case to  be made for an exploration of  justifiable expenses and a possi  ble increase for those, like  Lockstead, who have vast rural  ridings to cover. Whether urban  MLA's should be treated in the  same way as rural MLA's is a  debatable point.  The point is that a blanket  condemnation of the MLA's  for voting themselves a raise  may be unjustified when their  real expenses are considered. It  is particularly inappropriate to  condemn the members of the  opposition who have been consistent in their view that the  government's draconian  restraint measures were an unnecessary sham which were doing the provincial economy  more harm than good.  I think we should beware of  bandwagons   onto   which-  everyone wants to jump.

Well, our chances of a nifty  Nuclear war beat fifty-fifty -  So pick up your phone and pen  - and BE CONSISTENT!  Iris Griffith  George    in    Gibsons  The Japanese internment  by George Cooper  The Japanese-Canadians who  have long looked for redress for  the harsh treatment given them  by our federal government between 1942 and 1949, may soon  see this matter resolved in  parliament.  Many of us hope there will be  an official statement of profound regret for the errors made  in those years by the government.  Twenty-two thousand Canadian citizens of B.C. were,  without fair hearing in our  cherished system of law, removed from their homes, their work  places and many from their  families; all without trial or  hearing of any kind then or in  the 43 years since.  Some Canadians in wartime  military barracks in 1942 in Britain were appalled upon hearing  the news of this enforced  evacuation���it was almost a  copy of tactics used by the dictatorship with which the country was then at war.  There was alarm, of course,  and fear on our west coast after  Pearl Harbour in December  1941. Years of festering resentment in B.C. towards Japanese-  Canadians came to a head, and  they were herded out of the  coastal areas and their property  left to be practically given away  at public sales.  These fishermen and market  gardeners and small-  shopkeepers "who might take  over the province" were interned in camps well inland or sent  to other provinces to work in  the fields. Prior to this time  government regulations prevented the employment of any  Japanese-Canadian in Crown  timber leases, in mines, or in  public works.  But even after VJ Day many  bans remained; no franchise for  British subjects of Asiatic race,  for instance, until March 1,  1949. (Veterans of WW I had  been given the federal franchise  in 1931, and provincial in 1944.)  Travel to the west coast was forbidden them until March 31,  1949; and the war was over in  1945!  Japanese-Canadians were  banned from service in the armed forces in WW II until Britain  asked to recruit an interpreter  late in the war to serve in  southeast Asia, and this was  done secretly. It was found at  this time that many Japanese-  Canadians did not speak Japanese; English was their only  language.  After  the   war   politicians,  aware of the animosity towards  Japanese-Canadians in B.C.,  spoke against them even as late  as 1948. In November, 1948,  alderman Halford Wilson, for  example, opposed the civic vote  for them in Vancouver. He is  quoted, "It will be an open invitation to the government to  lift the ban on Japanese living  on the coast." He went on,  "The Japanese will flock back  and we will have the same type  of unfair competition and  economic problems we had  before."  He wasn't finished. "They  are now being assimilated  thrdughout the country and the  longer we can keep restrictions  in force the better to accomplish  that goal."  Alderman Laura Jamieson  said, "I'm sorry to hear you say  this."  MPs. from B.C. were just as  opposed. Thomas Reid,  Liberal, New Westminster, said  in March, 1948, "Grouping the  Japanese in one province is a  dastardly mistake. If they return  to B.C. they would flood into  fishing and logging. Delay this  as long as possible."  He went on, "I warn the people of Ontario, if they allow the  Japanese to concentrate in large  groups in Niagara or Essex  county, they would one day  remember the warnings of the  people of B.C." General  George Pearkes spoke in the  same vein. (Conservative,  Nanaimo).  Opposed to these views were  the strong voices of Angus  Mclnnis of the CCF, David  Croll of the Liberals, and in  B.C. Harold Winch a CCF  member of the legislature.  When the Japanese-Canadian  veterans of WW I sought to reactivate their Branch 9 charter  in the Canadian Legion, a  charter they had voluntarily surrounded during the war, they  found both support and opposition to their request. Some  Legion members thought giving  them their charter again would  bring them back to the coast.  Others stoutly defended the request, "They are veterans like  us; they proved their loyalty,  and besides they are born  citizens." The Japanese-  Canadians did not pursue their  request.  A Vancouver Sun editorial in  1948 may have voiced the view  that more and more B.C.er's  were taking: "Let us end this  discrimination.' These are our  fellow citizens."  Have we had a strong enough  innoculation in these events to  avoid the infection of intolerance in time to come?

We question the cost of  this 'saving'.  ' We would like to know why  the Press, and the press in  general, have not asked if there  are any cuts made or proposed  for the administration staff.  Why aren't more parents and  the community demanding cuts  be made at that level? Talk is  made about 'trimming the fat  from the budget'. In this sense  'fat' is seen as those whose  removal will have the least effect. Which cuts would least affect the students; cuts to  teachers and support staff, or  cuts to an administrative  bureaucracy? Is it not a conflict  of interest for administrators to  recommend to the board where  cuts should be made?

Our campaign to raise funds  startest in earnest in the summer  of '84 and within seven months  we have raised and collected in  excess of $8000 which has  enabled us to purchase this unit  and its essential accessories. The  community's response to our  two baseball tournament food  concessions, our Kin Vegas  Night, Shopperama, Kinettes  Monte Carlo Night and Albert  and Mary Weal's Christmas  light display has been most  gratifying.  In addition to our fund raising   projects,   we   received  numerous cash donations - we  would like to publicly recognize  two groups: the Gibsons OAP  and the Elphinstone Recreation  Group for their contributions.  To those individuals who gave  what they could afford; please  accept this letter as our thanks  for considering the welfare of  your friends, neighbours and  loved ones.  We would also like to salute  our local medical staff - who  first made us aware of this need  in the commuinity and cooperated fully to help us achieve  our objective.  To the the editor of the Coast  News and its photographers and  reporters a Kin thank you for  keeping the community informed of our efforts.

Dear Reader:  Images of Port Morien:  Gowrie School, dances in the  Orange Hall, telephone party  lines, the old stores, the Hobo,  coasting down Peter's Hill, Billy  Murphy and Johnny Murrant  orchestras, the old row and the  Watford shipwreck.  Former residents and friends  who have any images of Port  Morien are invited to relive their  memories during a reunion being held this year from August 2  to 5. This gathering will  especially honour our community's senior citizens who  naturally store the most  memories.  If you are interested in the  Port Morien reunion and would  like to help ensure its success,  please tell former residents of  Port Morien, now residing in  your area, about this big gathering. To remember past days:  chatting with a neighbour in  front of Mary Williams' store  Double  Editor: StCUnR.  It was my good fortune to  have witnessed a "double  skunk" in crib. In the last hand  Marv Iverson dealt, Roger  Desrossier counted first, eight  points, six points to go. After  hands of two and three, Willie  Buhner made a late charge, 10  points to get into hole 59. Bruce  Redman coolly delivered a final  blow for a ' 'double skunk".  Congratulations Roger and  Bruce.

Her singing always  grips her audience in admiring  appreciation.  The concert February 11 in  the Gibsons elementary gym  with the Canada West Chamber  Orchestra to accompany her  was a treat many missed.  We can hope she will favour  us again when she returns from  time to time to the Sunshine  Coast.  BLACK RABBIT  Some background of the golf  course black rabbit that our  editor spoke of in so heartwarming a way in his Musings.  You will recollect our editor  tiptoed through the woods like a  deer to observe the black rabbit.  (Playing a deer called on all his  considerable performing skill.)  Two female rabbits, a black  and a gray, once lived as pets on  an unnamed Gibsons street.  About three years ago.  ��� When the black one burrowed time after time out of her pen  and stripped bark from prized  shrubs in the neighbour's yard,  the owner took them to Gilker  Park and turned the two loose.  The grey one, said the  neighbour, was quite unassertive and promptly gave herself  up to the first earful of people  to picnic in the park. Soon an  ad in the paper announced a  "found" gray rabbit. No one  on the unnamed street responded.  But the black one established  herself near No.'s two and 10  tees, graciously permitting  golfers to pass by. There she has  lived her convent life since, the  fairway her pasture, the golfers  her admiring friends. And she  has outwitted eagles, dogs, and  would-be deer in all that time.  SALMON SHARK  Vince Braceweli tells of the  interest the salmon shark  display stirred up among the  folk attending the boat show in  Vancouver.  The supply of smoked  dogfish ahh...salmon shark,  was devoured by visitors in the  first two days of the show,  Vince says. The leaflets of  recipes for dog...salmon shark  that he and others had prepared  (remember Chak-Chak?) were  eagerly picked up.  One salmon shark in their  display tank learned that if it  poked its head above surface someone in the passing crowd  would pet it. Vince did not confide if the creature were specially trained. Good show all  around.  Area    C    Soundings  Heart collection  by Jean Robinson 885-2954  Remember, the B.C. Heart  Foundation has canvassers out  this week until February 28 in  fact.

Clark  Renney gave a resume of the  Re-structuring Committee  meeting and will have more to  report in April when the study is  Finished. Shirley Bower of  Chamberlin Gardens in Gibsons  gave a friendly, knowledgeable'  talk on when to prune and what  precautions to take against bug  infestation now. Ask her about  the abundantly producing and  fairly new Tayberry. Sounded  like everyone should grow this  winner. Shirley also gave  everyone a gift. Thanks Shirley.  March 11 is the annual  general meeting for the  DB/WCCA. The nominating  committee has been chosen and  election of officers will take  place. Wayne Leatherdale of  the Gibsons RCMP will be there  after the meeting to give a talk  and film on Crime Stoppers. He  By'law bogs down  "Let us know what's holding  up our by-law," is the message  the Sunshine Coast Regional  District wants to send to the  Minister of Municipal Affairs,  Bill Ritchie, and it was decided  to do so at the SCRD meeting,  February 14.  Chairman Jim Gurney  pointed out that the by-law has  become bogged down in Victoria, and there is some question as to whether it has reached  the minister's desk as yet.  "There's a danger some  enterprises might fail here on  the Coast," said Gurney, "and  it's due to this delay."  By-law 264 is a very comprehensive zoning by-law which  has been in Victoria since the  beginning of November, when  ministry of municipal affairs  staff had indicated to the SCRD  that passage of the by-law  would probably be fairly  speedy. This has not proved to  be the case, and many people  are suffering because of it.  A UTOPLA N NO TICE  Sunshine Coast Insurance  Agencies Ltd.

The Halfmoon Bay  volunteer firemen answered the  call but the blaze was so rapid!  that they were unable to save  the building. Fortunately no  one was injured.  The fire department recently  elected their new slate of officers. Fire chief is Greg Phelps;  Ken Clarkson is deputy chief;  tanker captain, Tony Petula;  pumper captain, Ron Marshall,  training officer, Jerry Gruner  and secretary-treasurer, Kelly  Foley. Good to know that our  fire department is running well  and in good hands.  MEETINGS  Don't forget to make a point  :of attending the meeting at  .Halfmoon Bay school this  Wednesday at 7 p.m. for the  ,"Let*s Talk Schools" discussion. This has become even  ���more important since the recent  -announcement of the possibility  -of your taxes being increased to  :meet the heeds of the school  budgets. Should be of interest  Ito all area residents and not just  ;the parents. On the same night  ���the Area B Ratepayers Assoca-  ;tion meets at West Sechelt  ���school. with one of their main  -topics being the possibility of  ���the joining together of this area  '.with Sechelt. Also some important matters to be talked about  Ihere and while it will not be  possible to attend both these  meetings, you should try to take  in one of diem. A reminder too  that the Halfmoon Bay Recreation Assocation will have their  annual general meeting on  Tuesday, February 26 at 7:30 at  the Steve Seenstra residence.  POETRY SESSION  Peter Trower was in attendance last week at the Suncoast  Writers' Forge meeting where  he read from some of his works  and discussed the writing of  poetry with the members.  ��� Peter answered many questions and explained the different  types of poetry and why it is not  always necessary to have rhyme  in verse. Modern poetry, or free  verse has become equally acceptable.  Those present enjoyed an ex-  cercise in writing dramatic prose. Next meeting of the Forge  will be on the usual second  Wednesday of the month.  REMEMBER  There are only a few days left  now in which you can pick up  tickets  for the show at the  seniors   hall   on   Saturday,  February 23 at 8 p.m. Show is  produced by Nikki Weber and  is of a SEMI-classical theme.  This will be all local talent and  don't   let   the   semi-classical  theme scare you - it will not be a  "heavy" show as most of the  vocal renditions will be from  well  known musicals  in the  popular vein. Tickets are $4  each and can be purchased from  Nikki at her new music store  behind the Parthenon, or Books  & Stuff in the mall or from any  member of the seniors' association. Proceeds go to the new  seniors hall.

A  lady with a good deal of experience in the health care field  and while a new member to the  auxiliary she has a long association with Sechelt.  Vivian takes over from Mrs.  Mary Macdonald who has held  the post for many years doing  an admirable job of getting and  keeping volunteers busy in the  hospital.  The annual volunteer meeting  has been organized by Vivan. It  is to be held on Wednesday,  February 20, starting at 11 a.m.  to 2 p.m. at the Sechelt Legion  .

This is known as the  Brown Bay Meeting as each one  brings their own lunch with coffee and tea provided.  While many people work as  volunteers in St. Mary's  Hospital they don't always get  to know each other, this  meeting gives that opportunity  to meet others and perhaps exchange ideas of what they do.  Guest speaker Neil Parker,  from the Bethel Baptist Church  will talk on hospital visiting.  Chairman of St. Mary's  Hospital Society Guy Lewall  and hospital administrator Nick  Vucerevich will also speak and  other senior staff members will  be present.  If you are interested in being  a volunteer this is a good time to  find out what does go on when  you offer yourself as a  volunteer. Volunteers are one of  the most important assets any  organization can have; a fact  well   known   and   high   appreciated by governing bodies.  SECHELT BRANCH  St. Mary's Hospital Auxiliary  Sechelt Branch, met on Valentine's Day and discussion was  on the forthcoming volunteer  meeting. Vivian Tepoorten is a  member of this branch and was  hailed as the new volunteer  director. Mary Macdonald  while not at the meeting was  well applauded for her years of  work as volunteer director.  This branch meeting had 26  members present with 109 on  the roster plus five new  members added this day.  Volunteer hours for January including in-service and out-  service were 1733.  Doris Gower brought in the  beautiful rug, the work of  several members, and all  declared it to be a thing of beauty. Tickets go on sale in the  Trail Bay Mall shortly. The raf  fle and draw will take place at  the May 30 luncheon.  Craft sessions have commenced, phone Peggy Gallo at  885-2985 if you are interested.  A convenor is needed for the  luncheon; come on it's not that  hard a job. Next meeting  speaker will be Marlene Lemkey  on disabled children Thursday,  March 14.  DANCE MARCH 9  The St. Mary's Hospital  Employee Union plan on dancing to the music of the Sunshine  Coast Ramblers on Saturday,  March 9, social hour 6:30 p.m.  and buffet at 7:30 p.m. The  dress is casual or western, the  price is $10 per head.  The Hospital Union donate  monies raised to good causes.  This one they will pass on to the  Variety Club Telethon.

More than 100 helium balloons, each one carrying a message written  by the students as part of a writing exercise, flew off into the afternoon sunshine at Davis Bay elementary school on Valentine's Day.  ���Dianne Evans photo  Sechelt Seniors  by Robert Foxall  President Larry has asked me  to extend congratulations to the  Telephone Committee for the  excellent job done on the evening of February 9.  Remember the night a week  ago that was so rough and dirty.  The committee decided that the  smart and human thing was to  postpone the dance for a week  and have the dance and party  on the sixteenth. I hope you all  got to it and that you all had a  grand time.  While it seemed as though we  did not have much to do you  will think differently before the  week is out. Larry informs me  that a new schedule of events  has been drawn up and is now  available at the hall if you have  not yet received yours.  A bus load of '69ers is going  to the Seton Villa February 20.  I'll have to get someone else to  tell us about the trip because I  had one of my absent-minded  spells and forgot to get a ticket.  Carving classes are being well  attended and it is suggested that  you should take the opportunity  to attend these classes on Thursday mornings and enjoy the  sociability that is enjoyed by the  members attending. You don't  have to carve but you may find  yourself drafted to make a few  cups of coffee. In the intervals  between you may find yourself  making some very enjoyable  friendships. Show up. You may  reap some great dividends.  Keep yourselves in good  shape. One of these days the  dam is going to burst and we  will be so busy with the new  building that we won't be able  to do our chores but we will  have to because we must keep  Branch #69 in a very healthy  and thrifty condition.

Thanks to all the  parents for their enthusiasm  and support.  SWEETHEART DINNER  Friday night the Pentecostal  church held a "Sweetheart Dinner" for couples in the community. Nearly 50 people attended the pot-luck affair at  Lions Hall. "Pot-luck" was not  a fitting description of the  marvellous buffet and desserts.  I think that we have some terrific cooks in Pender Harbour.  We were treated to two songs by  Linda Mavin, Lynda Harper  and Louise Berg. Louise is on  crutches with a twisted ankle,  but she sings like a nightingale.  WATCH YOUR STEP!  All this ice and snow can be  hazardous to your health! -  Louise Berg's ankle makes  three: first Doreen Lee in  December, then Lily Jones, who  is in St. Mary's, and now  Louise. Be sure to shovel your  steps and sidewalks, and take  care getting in and out of your  car.  PHSS NEWS  The pot-luck supper on  Wednesday, February 13 was  another Harbour feast, with all  kinds of casseroles and desserts.  Where were all the volleyball  players? The swim was very  popular, and gave everyone a  healthy appetite. Thanks to all ,  the parents who brought food,  and a special thanks to Mrs.  Laurel Whatley, the home  economics teacher, for organizing the dinner, and Dave Gibson for the activities. Immediately following the dinner  was the public forum "Let's  Talk about Schools". Fifty-five  <. people met to air their views.  Pender Harbour can be proud  of the turnout and the quality of  the presentations.  BARGAIN BARN  The Bargain Barn is open  every Thursday and Saturday  from 1 to 3:30 p.m. They are  again taking beer bottles. This  week there is a special on jeans,  come in and check out the  bargains. The Bargain Barn  needs younger blood to help  with its work. Without some  new volunteers, the Barn may  have to close. If you can give  three hours once a month, call  Ruth Kobus, 883-9603 or  Muriel Cameron, 883-2609.  DON'T FORGET  John Defoe will show slides  of hikes on the Sunshine Coast  at the Pender Harbour Wildlife  meeting on Tuesday February  19 at 7:30 p.m.  Lions Casino Night will be at  the Community Hall, Saturday,  February 23, 7 p.m.  Egmont    News  by Ann Cook, 883-9167  COMMUNITY NEWS  The bad news is that we did  not get "The Grant". There are  a lot of people in Egmont out of  work so we applied for a grant  hoping to get jobs to tide some  of them over the winter months  without having to apply for  welfare. Such a disappointment. What to do?  I am encouraging them to >  lean on MHR at this time; that  is what MHR is there for; but  no one likes to be on welfare. I  want to get mad and shake  somebody up. Then my  thoughts get ugly.  I read somewhere, but  maybe, the figure was a ���  misprint, "$56 million is to be  spent on new summer and  winter uniforms for the armed  forces of Canada"; thousands  more to paint the ferries a pretty  colour for '86. Our grant is a  drop in the bucket compared to  that kind of money. Getting  mad and ugly will just help me  get ulcers or cancer or whatever  comes of bad feelings.  GOOD FEELINGS  Good   feelings,   is   helping  eight   Egmont   residents   find  ways and means to take the Industrial First Aid Course that  Linda Curtiss encourages for  Egmont. Money is number one;  transportation is number two.  Two vehicles have been offered.  Now  the biggy,  money;   the  course fee is $275 per person.  Any ideas or suggestions are  more than welcome. If all eight  can take the course, when we  need help until the ambulance  crew arrive, surely one or two  will be at home. Then, no one  will feel guilty if they take the  course and have to go out to a  logging camp to work, or away  fishing or even on a holiday.  Chances of getting a job are better if you have 1FA. If through  this some of the eight get work,  they will come back to spend  their money in Egmont.  We took Saturday night off  to have an old fashioned Egmont wedding party.  REMINDER  The annual Egmont Community Club meeting is Tuesday, February 19, 7:30 p.m., at  our community hall of course.  It is our hall and we should use  it more. Let's have a good turnout for the meeting and make  plans for this year. More wedding parties mean more children  and we need children in Egmont.  RAFFLE WINNERS  And the good news.

Coast News, February 18,1985  by Gladys Coates  Another enjoyable meeting at  our hall with 67 members in attendance. Our president, Jim  Monroe brings his own  charisma to our meetings, and  makes everyone feel free to express their opinions.  In spite of the snow, activities  at the hall have been well supported. The Friday night crowd  was less than usual, as some  people couldn't get out to the  main road. Wednesday carpet  bowling was cancelled because  the Bill Johnsons and Chum  and Olive Metcalf, who are in  charge in the absence of Ed and  Molly Connor, were unable to  get out. They are doing a bang-  up job, however, and we appreciate them.  Delegates were chosen for the  OAPO convention to be held in  Courtenay in June.  A petition to the ferry corporation is being readied for the  March meeting. We are unhappy about several things at the  Langdale terminal, and feel we  should make our protests  known.  Through the efforts of the  bingo committee, and the support from the bingo players, our  organization was happy to to  able to donate $500 to the heart  machine which is being purchased by the Kinsmen Club for the  use of the people of Gibsons.  An excellent financial report  was given by Rhena White,  showing a healthy state of  finances.  This month's trip saw a bus  load of seniors off to Vancouver to the B.C. Sugar  Refinery and a visit to  Guildford Shopping Mall in  Surrey. March 12 the group will  be off to the Planetarium and  Maritime Museum. If interested  contact Win Stevens, 886-8056.  Jessie Morrison is filling in as  painting instructor, and would  like all painters or would-be  painters to drop in on Friday  mornings at 9:30. These are  held in the annex of the hall,  where it is always warm and  comfortable.  The Harmony Hall singers,  under the leadership of Peggy  Campbell, are singing for the  residents of Shorncliffe and  Kiwanis Village this month.  The ceramics class, held on  Thursdays at 1:30 p.m. is  desperately in need of more participants. Bernice Chamberlin is  instructing - there is room in the  annex for more creative people.  Potluck dinner in January  was delicious, and on February  22 at 6 p.m. we will gather again  for potluck, followed by whist  and cribbage.  It's all for fun, so come on  out some of you new members,  and would-be members. It's a  very enjoyable evening.  One of our long-time  members, Dick Oliver,  celebrated this eighty-eighth birthday in January with a dinner  party put on by wife Eva. Your  reporter was pleased to be invited and spent a very enjoyable  evening.  Next general monthly  meeting is March 4 at 1:30 p.m.  Come join us, all are welcome.  To help the membership convenor get all the names in order,  please pay your dues, which are  $3 per person, per year, before  the end of March.  Anyone interested in a bus  tirp to Reno? Polly Chamberlin  is taking bookings for March  22. Phone 885-9976 for details.  Can spring be far away.

Lights  needed  Residents of Seaview Lane in  the West Sechelt area will find it  easier to locate the entrance to  the laneway after dark once the  new street lighting is in place. A  light was approved by the Sunshine Coast Regional District  board at the February 14  meeting, after a delegation  presented their concerns and a  report from the RCMP pointed  out some of the present dangers  in the area.  The board also agreed that a  request from the trustees of  Granthams Landing Improvement District for another light  on Elphinstone Avenue should  receive consideration, and the  possibility is being investigated.

We had already  eaten all the mysterious - usually unlabeled - leftovers  and I was beginning to think we'd be living permanently on chicken soup when my frozen fingertips alighted  on a strange brown parcel labelled Granville Market  Chorizos.  Saved by sloppy housekeeping yet again! I  zoomed to my Spanish cookbook and found a super  hearty looking dish called Huevos a la Flamenca. My  version alas was not what you'd call authentic due to  the fact that we didn't have many of the ingredients  -but here is the substitute version which "they" seemed to eat up exceedingly quickly - even if' 'small'' looked at the eggs floating on top and muttered, "Totally  gross"!  Huevos not quite a la Flamenca  % cup drained canned tomatoes  1/8 cup olive oil  Vt cup finely chopped onions  1 tablespoon garlic, finely chopped  1 green pepper, finely chopped  1 chorizo sausages - or any other spicey sausage,  such as Italian  1 tablespoon parsley, finely chopped  1 bay leaf V* teaspoon pepper  1 teaspoon salt V3 cup water  1. In a skillet, heat the oil until slightly hazy. Add the  onions, garlic and green pepper. Stir for 5 minutes  or until vegetables are soft.  2. Cut the sausage into 'A inch rounds and add to  onion mixture. Add remaining ingredients and bring  to a boil. Cook until most of the liquid has  evaporated and mixture is quite thick - 15 to 20  minutes. Set aside.  Now for the next step:���  1 teaspoon olive oil  6 eggs  72 cup cooked hot frozen peas  6 cooked hot broccoli spears - fresh or frozen  3 tablespoons dry white wine  1. Brush the inside of a casserole dish with the oil.  2. Pour in the sausage mixture, spreading it evenly.  3. Arrange the peas and broccoli artistically in sections  on top of the sausage mixture.  4. Break the eggs on top of the mixture. Sprinkle with  wine. Bake at 400�� F for 20 minutes and serve immediately.  Hasta la vista.

I look forward to the longer days and  warm weather. It won't be long before people will be out  clearing their garden plots of last year's growth and  debris.  Many people start their gardening indoors. In this way  they produce plants ready to set out when the ground is  warm enough to receive them.  m.  Growing plants indoors is good therapy.Get your seeds  now and go to work. Our new spring seed-rack, fully  stocked, is out on display already for the early bird selections.  Turkeys���We have had a recent announcement that  March is to be Turkey Month. This promotion is, quite  naturally organized by the National Turkey Growers  Association. And why not? I'm all for them!  Gone are the days when you only think of turkey for  the celebration of Thanksgiving, Christmas or Easter. We  can and should enjoy a turkey dinner at least once each  month. The food is delicious, nourishing and inexpensive. Without calculating for some loss of weight for the  carcass, the cost of a young turkey, Gr. A (frozen) is  roughly comparable to medium grade ground beef. It is  half the cost of a prime rib roast.  So why not eat turkey more often?  Announcement  Mary and I wish to announce the arrival of a new addition to our household. He is named "Willie". He is 7  weeks old and very much a baby. He is an Apricot  Miniature Poodle. A shy little fellow, and doesn't whine  or cry at night. He was a Valentine's gift to each other.  On January 29, at the monthly meeting of the executive  council of St. Mary's Hospital  Auxiliary (Sunshine Coast), we,  welcomed as our new president  Mrs. Betty Laidlaw, who receiv-  , ed the gavel as a token of  authority from Mrs. Edith Simmons, our past president, who  takes on her new role as appointed board member to the  board of trustees. New  representatives met with us,  from Pender Harbour, Port  Mellon and Sechelt branches,  and we also welcomed our new  volunteer director, Mrs. Vivian  Tepoorten. We are glad to  realize that Mrs. Mary Mac-  Donald, who has served us so  faithfully and efficiently as  volunteer director, for several  years, will remain on council as  vice-president of the Halfmoon  Bay branch. We are also appreciative of the good job done  by our retiring board member,  Mrs. Charolotte Raines. She  too will remain active among us  as chairman of the local Red  Cross Blood Donor Clinic,  which will take place this year,  April 1, at the Royal Canadian  Legion, Sechelt between the  hours of 3 p.m. and 8 p.m.  Mr. Vucurevich, our administrator, and Miss^Wendy  Hunt, director of nursing,  brought us the 1985 request for  funding assistance for equipment necessary for the care and  comfort of the patients of our  hospital. Our branch presidents  will take the request back to  their branches for . approval,  and hopefully when we next  report to you, we will be able to  tell you the extent to which the  auxiliary will be able to meet  these 1985 needs. Auxiliary  funds come from our various  raffles, bake sales, luncheons,  bazaars, Thrift Shop and Gift  Shop, and we appreciate the  support ' of all Sunshine  Coasters and their visitors.  Bumper to Bumper's gift collection at Christmas provided  six knitted toys for kiddies in  paediatrics and new-born during Christmas week. The auxiliary decorated and  undecorated the hospital for  Christmas���don't know who  enjoyed it more, the volunteers,  the patients or their visitors.  All members of the auxiliary  are reminded of our volunteer  director's annual bag luncheon,  to be held Wednesday,  February 20, 11 a.m. at the  Sechelt hall of the Royal Canadian Legion. Tea and coffee will  be provided. Come and meet  our new volunteer director; hear  what is going on in the other  branches; share with us. We  always have a super time.  St. Mary's Hospital is to  benefit from the proceeds of  pledges taken for goals scored  in the forthcoming hockey  game, February 16, between the  RCMP and the Oldtimers. All  branch members are asked to  take pledges from family,  friends and neighbours, and to  make themselves responsible to  collect the pledges. The maximum amount will be $10.00. A  dollar a goal may be too rich for  your pocket book, but perhaps  50c or 25e could be managed.

Top winner in the draw held  February 10 was Eileen Jorgens,  Sandy Hook. Eileen won $1000  with her participation in the  derby/lottery. Of the 100 tickets  drawn for provincial lottery  ticket prizes 50 were Coast  residents, according to tourism  manager Anne Langdon.  "We were really delighted  with the number of locals winning this time," Langdon said,  "It showed the strong participation by our own people in this  Coast wide promotion."  Salmon shark lottery tickets  are available at all banks and  credit unions on the Coast, and  will be sold at displays in the  malls later.  "We would like to thank the  many volunteers who took time  to man our booth at the show."  Langdon said ���t. .. ���  10.

Francis Ford Coppola's 1983  film Rumble Fish was shot back  to back with The Outsiders,  both films based on novels by  teenage diarist S.E. Hinton.

Rumble Fish advertises itself as a  film about the desperate loss of  innocence that reduces life after  childhood.

Check the decal on your vehicle licence plate: if it is  dated "Feb. '85", it means your Autoplan insurance  and licence renewal are due this month.  And you'll have plenty of company: about one third of  the vehicles on the road in British Columbia carry  insurance and plates that expire in February.  Be sure to read the information in the guide that is  sent to you with your renewal application, it outlines  changes to Autoplan for 1985, and answers some  of the questions most frequently asked about auto  insurance.  Questions like these, for example:  When is my insurance due?  If the date on the decal is "Feb. '85", you must have  new Autoplan insurance before March 1. Your  insurance always expires on the last day of the  month named on the decal, and new coverage must  be in effect on the first of the month following.  Have my premiums been increased?  Probably very little, if at all.  As a province-wide average, 1985 premiums have  risen a maximum of just $25 for more than one  million vehicle owners, an average increase of only  two per cent���well below the current rate of inflation.  In fact, more than half a million B.C. motorists will  enjoy a premium reduction of as much as $100.  What determines how much I pay  for insurance?  The vehicle you drive, your claim record, and the  purpose for which your vehicle is used.  ICBC's Claim-Rated Scale is an equitable rating  system that provides rewards for motorists who are  claim-free and imposes higher premiums on those  who have frequent claims.  In 1984, more than 1.5 million British Columbians  paid premiums at or below the base rate, while about  13,000 paid higher premiums as a result of claims.  How much auto insurance must I carry?  Every licenced vehicle in British Columbia must  have basic Autoplan coverage, which insures the  owner and any other licenced driver who operates  the vehicle with the owner's permission.  Basic coverage provides 'No-Fault' Accident Benefits and $200,000 Third Party Legal Liability, as well  as protection against uninsured or unidentified (hit  and run) motorists. This basic coverage has been  increased to $200,000 to ensure better compensation for those making valid claims against motorists  who have purchased only the minimum coverage.  Can I buy additional coverage?  Yes, as much as $10 million in Extended Third Party  Legal Liability insurance. You may also buy Own  Damage coverage (Collision, Comprehensive, etc.),  or Special Equipment Endorsements for those  valuable items attached to a vehicle but not automatically covered (tape decks, two-way radios,  campers, canopies, customized van interiors, etc.).  Other available Autoplan coverages include "Loss of  Use by Theft", and "Underinsured Motorist Protection", which provides additional compensation if you  are injured in an accident in which the driver at fault  has insufficient insurance to pay the full amount of  your claim. Your Autoplan agent will be pleased to  discuss details of these coverages with you.  How important is my vehicle's  'use' rating?  It's very important. In fact, if your vehicle is improperly rated, or if you use your vehicle for a purpose  that requires a higher premium than that shown on  the Certificate of Insurance, your Autoplan coverage  may be invalid. This means a claim on your Own  Damage coverage (Collision or Comprehensive, for  example) may be denied. You may also be required  to reimburse the Corporation for any Third Party  claims paid on your behalf.  2   Ensuring a  Safer B.C.  ��� INSURANCE  CORPORATION  OF BRITISH COLUMBIA  If I drive my car to and from work,  is that 'business use'?  Only if you also use the car in your work. Using a  vehicle to drive 'to and from work' or 'to and from  school' puts it in a different category from 'business  use' or 'pleasure use'.  Do special groups such as the  handicapped, homemakers, and  charitable organizations get special  considerations when determining  premiums?  Yes, certainly. ICBC makes every effort to accommodate the special needs of these British Columbians, and to ensure that their transportation costs  are kept as low as possible.  If you're in doubt about which rate class applies to  your situation, your Autoplan agent will assist you.  What is a deductible?  It's the amount you pay before insurance coverage  takes over if an accident is judged to be your  responsibility. The deductible amount varies for  different kinds of insurance. To choose the one that's  right for you for collision coverage, for example, you  should decide how much you could afford to pay to  repair your vehicle in the event of an accident. The  higher the deductible you choose, the lower your  premium will be.  Where can I get complete information  on Autoplan coverage?  From your Autoplan insurance agent. Be sure to  allow yourself enough time when renewing to discuss your needs fully so any required adjustments  can be made before your 1985 coverage must be  in place.  And don't forget to pick up your free 1985 Autoplan  Motorist Kit. It's a detailed guide to Autoplan with  information on everything you need to know to complete your insurance program.

While Ms Vernon displayed  obvious dexterity in dealing  with the tentative searchings of  a youthful Handel and the  acoustic eccentricities of a  school gym, the opening  passages appeared more in the  nature of a technical exploration into operatic composition.

The  melodic predictability of this  final allegro, combined with the  richness of Handel's arrangement of this stage of the piece  found soloist and orchestra in  glorious and congenial unison  and Ms Vernon was finally able  to exercise the full range of her  talents with more freedom.  1  feel sure that a full orchestra  would   provide   a   more   appropriate backdrop for Ms Vernon's capabilities. It is truly a  delight to listen in to the arcane  world  of professional  opera,  and this audience member, left  hanging, would  have enjoyed  listening to a full program of  Lyn Vernon's singing.  The second half of the program began with the familiar  strains of Bach's "Concerto for '  Two Violins in D Minor" ably  executed by soloists Victor  Costanzi and Mark Koenig, the  warmth and richness of  Koenig's tone provided the  perfect musical foil for Costan-  Profiles  zi's bright clean sound, a rare  combination.  Despite the fact that the final  piece of music by Grieg, "Suite  for Strings Opus 40", was an  experimental composition written in a more traditional style  the essential emotive elements in  Grieg's music can never be  disguised.  The obvious relish with which  Bruce Dunn conducted this  suite and the attention to detail  shown by the 11 strings of the  Canada West Chamber Orchestra indicated an affection  for this graceful work.  It is apparent that a truly professional rendering of the evening's program, especially its  quieter and more delicate  aspects, could only be achieved  in a properly designed acoustic  chamber with appointments  befitting the calibre of art  presented by such as Lyn Vernon, Bruce Dunn and the  Canada West Chamber Orchestra. As ever, the need for a  proper venue for the performing arts on the Sunshine Coast  was painfully obvious^  "New Waves", the exhibition  opening at the Arts Centre,  Sechelt, on Wednesday,  February 20 will show the work  of local printmakers Cindy Buis  and Peter JBraune. A reception  for the artists will be held on  Tuesday-evening, February 19  from 8 to 10 p.m., and the  following Sunday, February 24,  starting at 2 p.m. the artists will  give a demonstration of etching  techniques and paper making at  the Arts Centre. Admission to  this event is free.  Both artists, after graduating  from the Alberta College of Art  won travelling scholarships using them to travel and study in  the East. Peter took this opportunity to print in numerous  printshops in Quebec and Newfoundland, while Cindy travelled and studied in Newfoundland. Cindy also has a  BFA degree in printmaking and  textiles from the Nova Scotia  College of Art and Design.  In her work, which is inspired  by landscape, Cindy concentrates mainly on etching, working traditionally and producing  several editions of one print.  She has exhibited her prints in  solo and group exhibitions  plates, or air brushing the paper  ^across Canada and has given  many workshops in etching and  other methods of printing. She  is also interested in hand-made  paper, enjoying the textures and  chance effects that can be  achieved in this craft. She is, of  course, becoming well known  on the Coast for her delightful  frame and print shop  "Showpiece Frames" in lower  Gibsons and for her many  framing workshops. /  Peter Braune is more experimental in his printing  techniques, partly because of a  fascination with textures, but  chiefly because the particular effects he wishes to create can only be done by unusual methods  such as beating paper or  lithographic plates into road  surfaces   then   printing   these  TV Director  by Peter Trower  -,��-/  Mike returned from the  States in 1960 with a degree in  journalism and "my wife, three  kids and everything we owned  in the back of a station-  wagon". He had been promised  a job back at The Sun but now  there was a recession and the  job was not forthcoming. "I  had to go out and do flack work  for the next five years and hated  every minute of it," he says.  When a chance came up in the  mid-sixties for Mike to get work  in television as a farm commentator, he jumped at it.  The show was CBC's Country Calendar and the budget was  minimal. Mike was forced to  operate as a one-man band for  the next two years, researching,  writing, doing field work and  appearing on camera "which I  couldn't stand". The show  ostensibly had a producer but  he was seldom around and Mike  usually ended up doing this too.  "It was rough," he says, "but I  probably learned the business  faster than I would have in any  other way. It was sink or  swim."  From these crash-course  beginnings, Mike soon evolved  into a seasoned produced/director. "It's no different from  plumbing," he observes, "you  just have to learn how to use the  tools." Mike eventually talked  the 'Corp.' into setting him up  in his own unit to produce  "documentaries that would  have a wider base of interest for  the people of a province that is  only three per cent farmland."  It resulted in several very productive years for Mike, and  some top-notch films.  In the early seventies, Mike  and producer Gordon Babineau  landed a sweetheart assignment  with writer, George Woodcock,  called In the South Seas. It was  a series of nine films and involved eight months of exotic  island-hopping in the South  Pacific. Mike was co-producer  and co-director. The series did  better   on   the   international  market than any previous CBC  program.  But mostly Mike sought subject matter that was closer to  home. His Politics of Power,  dealt with the Fraser River and  its people and won the 1973  Wilderness Award. Tanker-  bomb, a timely study of international oil tanker traffic, particularly down the west coast,  Von the Prix Anik Award1 for  f: be^t'CBC documentary in 1978.  ; Some of his other films include: Dlahee - the Far Land -an  evocative film about the Queen  Charlotte Islands; the Reckon-  ; ing - a post-mortem analysis of  the Columbia River Treaty; The  American Trinity - a bicentennial look at Middle America  (for which, Mike returned to  Virginia); The Shadow and the  Spirit - a probe into the  mythology and origins of West  Coast Indian art and Promised  Land - a searching look at the  Mackenzie Valley and western  Arctic and the.probable effect  of oil development on the  peoples of that area. In 1975,  Mike even managed to squeeze  ���i"^        :^���?-V  in a small film called Between  the Sky and the Splinters, based  on the work of a certain West  Coast logging poet.  Some years back, Mike  returned to the Sunshine Coast  and now lives on a 10 acre  spread in the backlands of  Sechelt. He works as a  freelancer these days, directs the  odd episode of The  Beachcombers and puts the  finishing touches on a long-term  project - a full-length film about  draft-dodgers hiding out on  Elphinstone Mountain during  World War One. Between  times, he cultivates his extensive  apple orchard. "I guess I really  never did get over those farm  broadcasts," he says with a  grin."  Stephen Bos well  at Arts Centre  The classical guitarist,  Stephen Boswell, will give a  recital at the Arts Centre on  Saturday, March 2. Tickets,  which are all $5, may be bought  in advance at the Hunter  Gallery, lower Gibsons (Tuesday to Saturday, 11-5; Sunday,  11-4), or the Arts Centre, Trail  and Medusa, Sechelt (Wednesday to Saturday, 11-4; Sunday,  1 - 4). As there is only room for  90 seats in the Arts Centre, it is  recommended that people buy  their tickets early rather than  waiting to get them at the door.  Stephen Boswell, whose recent solo appearances have included  very successful  major  concert tours of B.C., Alberta,  Idaho and Washington, gave a  much appreciated recital here  last year, when he played a  varied program of classical and  Spanish music.  Recent honours won by  Stephen Boswell include performing a solo recital for the  Guitar '84 Festival in Toronto,  and being selected as the official  Canadian representative to participate in the X Concurso de  MUsica in Vina Del Mar, Chile,  held in November 1983. His  first solo record album, released  in 1982, has received wide acclaim, and contains music from  Canada, Spain and Latin  America.

Last year, eight teams, playing  in two divisions, participated in  the tournament. This year an  entry of 12 teams is expected,  and at least nine of the teams  will be from out-of-town. A  two-division format will be used  again with the Bruise division  competing for the Suncoast Cup  and the Ache division competing for the Canfor Cup.  The competitive close matchups typical of last year's tournament are expected this year as  well. Last year's divisional winners, Squamish Extra Old Stock  and Powell River Gentlemen  will be entered this year along  with several newcomers. The  Orient Express who narrowly  defeated the Breakers last  November at the Lumberjack  Classic in Vancouver will be  here as well as the Whistler  Oldtimers who soundly defeated the Breakers in the 'A' division final at Squamish, also last  November.  Come out and see the  Breakers take their revenge.  Games start Friday at 5:30  p.m., Saturday at 7 a.m., running all day and the playoffs Sunday at 8 a.m. running until 2  p.m. Admission is free.

Because of poor field conditions  at the regular Elphinstone field,  the fourth and third division  games were transferred to a  drier Chatelech field.  The Piggies failed to score  against a first place Vancouver  Scribes side, losing 18-0.  Regrouping from a long lay-off  from the first half league play  perhaps plagued our new fourth  division side.

It is recommended for wide spaces between  teeth and also for under fixed bridge-work.  Floss holders or "wands": originally developed for physically  challenged dental patients who could not floss because of  the dexterity required using the fingers of two hands to  manipulate the floss between the teeth. Great for those who  fee! they are all thumbs.  Toothpaste is NOT a necessity but is great for the fluoride  content and the abrasive does keep the level of stain from  tobacco and beverages down. It also tastes pretty good to  adults but for some children it is too strong so don't push it.  Mary Bland, RDH  THE UNITED CHURCH  OF CANADA  Sunday Worship Services  ST.

(confined to barracks) days in  my service career with the  RCAF; the only difference being that there were guards  posted around the barracks to  enforce the commands of the  military hierarchy, while on a  freighter there was nobody  around to keep watch on any  one. They were all ashore  roistering and enjoying  themselves while the opportunity lasted.  There was also another important difference and that was  that it was virtually impossible  to obtain anything of a  spirituous nature while confined  in camp, whereas on a ship,  particularly when she was in  port, it was a fairly easy matter  to get samples of whatever  alcoholic beverages were  available ashore. On this occasion in Torreviega, Spain, I arranged with one of the Spanish  boys to conceal two bottles of  brandy in one of the baskets of  fresh vegetables that were being  brought aboard. Now, literally  speaking, 1 was all set but still a  problem remained.  After their first night's fling  ashore, the crew and especially  my companions in the galley  waxed eloquent on the subject  of the young Spanish senoritas  they  had encountered  in  the  numerous bars they had visited.  According to their versions of  the    feminine   pulchritude  available, they had never seen  its equal and, possibly for my  benefit alone, dwelt at length on  the marvellous mammary endowments of these lovely girls  and,    surprisingly,   all   these  delights   could   be   savoured  simply by the exchange of a  remarkably few pesetas. It was  an amazing thing to hear them  tell it and I simply had to get  ashore to see if it was all true.  Torreviega   having   a   very  shallow harbour, we anchored  about a half mile off shore but  that was no problem as I knew I  could bribe one of the Spanish  boatmen to take me ashore but  it would have to be after dark.  The real difficulty would be getting   back   to   the  ship.   Not  possessing   a   shore   pass    I  couldn't legitimately go through  the   dock   area   where   the  boatmen congregated, so would  have to find some other means.  After a few slugs of the fiery  Spanish brandy I made up my  mind. To hell with it and Cap-  tian Craig. I was going ashore  and anyway if I eilded up in jail,  so what, it wouldn't be the first  time!  Everything went according to  plan except that the Spaniard  who agreed to take me didn't  want pesetas. He demanded a  pound of coffee so I had to raid  the storeroom. I later found out  that good coffee was almost  unobtainable in Spain and fetched an incredible sum on the  black market.  It wasn't very long before I  was seated in one of the can-  tinas and, by God, the boys  were right. There were so many  dark-eyed beauties smouldering  with passion sitting around it  was difficult to make a choice. I  settled for one who spoke a little  English and she informed me  her name was Dolores and she  was 20 years old. I still cannot  fathom why I decided, of all  things, to take her back to the  ship with me. It must have been  the brandy. She agreed to go  and soon we were headed for  the waterfront. As I have explained, I couldn't go to the  dock and rent a boat so we  prowled along the shore until I  found just what I was looking  for - a small skiff with a pair of  oars under the seats.  I don't think we had gone  more than two or three hundred  yards when there was a terrific  outcry from the dock area and  the beams of a searchlight swept  over the dark waters. We were  soon spotted and there were  more shouts in Spanish. I just  ignored it all and kept on rowing until I heard the two sharp  cracks of a high-powered rifle  and something went whizzing  over our heads. That really sent  Dolores into a panic and she  stood up in our flimsy craft and  started screeching like a banshee. When I yelled at her to sit  down and she didn't comply I,  like a fool, stood up and tried to  grab her and, in less time than it  takes to write, the skiff capsized  and both of us landed in the  drink. It turned out that she  couldn't swim a stroke and in  my efforts to aid her she was so  frantic she nearly drowned me.  We were in desperate shape  when help arrived in the form of  a motor launch with two occupants and you will never  guess who they were. One was  Captain Craig and the other  some dignitary from the  Spanish consulate who owned  the launch.  It appeared that our good  captain had been indulging in  his favourite hobby and had  been to Cartagena to take pic-  tues of the beautiful cathedral  there and was now on this way  back to the ship.  They soon fished us out of  the sea and about all I  remember was the captain saying, as he bent over the side of  the launch, "Bless My Soul, if it  isn't the cook!". I often  wonder, good man that he was,  if he hadn't stolen a glance at  my companion. She was sure  worth looking at and, although  such things were unheard of at  the time, she would have walked  away with top honours in any  Wet-T-Shirt Contest. She was  magnificent, but sadly I didn't  have the opportunity to enjoy  her charms. She was returned to  the shore and I back to the S.S.  Lake Sicamous in disgrace. At  least that's the way "Bible Bill"  put it.  *****   *t, **  N  AV***  Past president of the Gibsons Chamber of Commerce Rob Liddicoat, now of the Candy Slioppe, hands over the reins to 1985's  president Sheila Kitson of Truffles The Candy Store. -Ne>iitcCon*ay photo  Kit son is new  chamber president  At a well attended general  meeting of the Gibsons  Chamber of Commerce held  Tuesday in the Gibsons Marine  I*  Revenue Canada  Taxation  Revenue Canada  impot  Income Tax  can we help?

I wish  to thank all the people from  West Sechelt through Gibsons  all the way out to Port Mellon  and everyone in between for  your tremendous support in our  Swim-A-Thon.  I know some areas were hit  fairly hard because we have so  many swimmers and as some  people know now, these swimmers have become very strong  through their hard work in the  pool.  Special thanks to Ernie Fosset  and Gibsons Rec for their donation, thanks to Mr. Hagedorn  from Super Valu for supplying  the swimmers with cookies, and  thanks to Derrick Wong from  Gibsons Esso for his financial  support.  Also a special thanks to  Carolyn Cross and Sandy  Dunlop for co-ordinating the  entire Swim-A-Thon. Many,  many thanks to all our swimmers for getting out there and  getting pledges and finally  swimming   their   hearts   out.

Last week's winner was Jesse  Schmidt, R.R. #4, Reed Road, Gibsons, who correctly located the  drinking fountain at the golf course on Highway 101, Roberts Creek.  Alternate economic  strategy urged  The Sunshine Coast Solidarity Coalition and the Joint  Council of local unions held a  conference on Saturday,  February 16 to initiate the  preparation of an alternative  economic strategy for the Sunshine Coast.  This group will among, other  things, make presentation to the  regional district, economic/  employment strategy committee  as to the focus and priority of  several public forms that should  be held as part of the public input process.  This group will also .make  contributions to the public  forums and develop a comprehensive economic strategy  based on the input it has received from community and labour  organizations that participated  in the conference. The group's  own economic strategy will then  be the focus of a public information campaign arid submis  sions to local and senior levels  of government.  The local solidarity/union  group endorsed, as part of its  economic strategy preparations,  some general principles and objectives for the long term  development of the community,  with the unanimous agreement  that the priority of any  economic strategy for the Sunshine Coast must be the maximum creation of jobs and a  dramatic decrease in the level of  unemployment���both in the  short and the long term. New  economic development must  therefore be labour intensive,  and for the general immediate  benefit of the residents of the  region.  The general conclusion was  that the Sunshine Coast has a  vast store of natural and human  resources that must soon be put  to work before irreparable  damage is done to the community.

LLtLLl  Items of interest at last  Wednesday's Sechelt council  meeting included the possible  donation to the village of the  Anglican Church as a museum,  and the discussion of a plea  from a B.C. coalition of interest  groups to have council endorse  an increase in welfare payments  to the needy.  Mr.   and   Mrs.   Shaw   of  Sechelt indicated in a letter to  council that they were preparing  an offer to the Anglican Church  in Sechelt for the purchase of  the existing main building, on  the understanding that it could  be relocated in the village of  Sechelt    as   a    permanent  historical building and museum.  The  Elphinstone   Historical  Society have expressed an interest in the project and if the  village of Sechelt were to make  available a suitable location for  the building Mr. and Mrs. Shaw :  will consider providing funds to  the society for the purchase,  moving and placement of a permanent    foundation    for   the  structure. The Shaws. have also  arranged   for   a   professional  assessment as to the feasability  of moving the building. Council  will be looking into the means  by which a site can be made  available.  A coalition including the  B.C. Teachers' Federation and  the B.C. Association of Social  Workers asked council in a  carefully worded letter titled  'End Legislated Poverty', if  they would pass a motion endorsing an increase in welfare"  rates to the poverty level and  send a copy of the resolution to  the Human Resources Minister  Grace McCarthy.  "What really constitutes  poverty?", queried Alderman  Forman, "does it mean that  everyone is entitled to a TV set  and steak on Saturday night?"  Council was in agreement as to  the nebulous nature of the term  'Poverty' and Alderman Short  concluded the discussion by  proposing that council word its  own motion to the effect that  Sechelt would endorse an increase in welfare rates since  there had not been an increase  since 1982.

Alderman Short in his committee report to council commented on the lack of concrete  action taken in the area of  public works, citing several  cases of poor drainage and  disintegrating roadways.  "We have to take the responsibility to get these jobs done,"  said Short. "We not making the  progress we should."  Administrator Malcolm  Shanks reminded council that  there was a backlog of some  two dozen projects including  road resurfacing and poor  drainage situations requiring attention. Alderman Craig suggested that these repairs be  lumped together and put out to  tender rather than carry them  out piecemeal. Council has  agreed to compile a short list of  the more pressing jobs with a  view to effecting repairs as soon  as possible.
