 LEGISLATIVE LIBRARY  Parliament Buildings  VICTORIA, B.C.  V8V 1X4  85.4  SCRD meeting  Ian Buchanan, Pipe Major of the Sechelt Legion led the parade of teams competing in the Legion Zone  Playdowns at the Gibsons Winter Club,. January 12 and 13. Mayor Laurente Labonte of Gibsons was on  hand to send the first stone down the ice. Teams from Powell River, Sechelt and Gibsons competed.  . ���Dianne Evans photo  Among the items up for  discussion at the January 10  Sunshine Coast Regional  District (SCRD) board meeting,  were tax rates, a new street light  in area B and the latest news  from the B.C. Ferry Corporation.  Secretary-treasurer Larry Jar-  dine presented a report on tax  rate limits, in. which it was  shown that the SCRD falls well  below the provincial limits on  taxation while still providing  enough to fund all its functions.  For example, under the ministry  ofcmunicipal affairs guidelines,  $27,871 could be raised for  street lighting, but the SCRD  has raised only $21,000, provisionally. The overall limit for all  general application functions is  now $1 per $1,000 as opposed  to three mills, and for two mills  functions the rate is now 50  cents per $1,000. The SCRD  could legimately raise approx  imately $964,000 for all general  purpose functions, an increase  in the upper limit from the;  previous three mill limitation of  about $450,000.  The Area B Ratepayers'  Association has asked that a  light be installed at the corner of  Highway 101 and Seaview lane.  The girls' camp residents use the  corner as a place to flag down  the bus, as do many other local  residents, and their feeling is  that a light would add to the  safety of the corner.  It was decided to ask the  RCMP to examine the intersection and report if safety will indeed be enhanced by the addition of a street light.  Transportation Committee  chairman, Director John  Shaske reported on the January  5 meeting with representatives  of the B.C. Ferry Corporation,  at which a core schedule was  agreed upon for implementa  tion in the -near future.  However, members of the  board were not pleased with the  overall picture of our present  ferry service.  "We are still not satisfied  with the ferry service," said  Alternate Director Ron Neilson,  "the schedule fits the ferry corporation restraints but it is not  satisfactory."  The new schedule gives room  to insert extra sailings in the  summer months, and will see  departures from Langdale at  6:20 a.m., 8:30 a.m. and 12:25  p.m., with departures from  Horseshoe Bay at 7:30 a.m.,  9:30 a.m. and 1:15 p.m. The  afternoon schedule will remain  the same.  It was agreed by the board  that seven sailings a day are just  not adequate and it was decided  to send a letter to that effect to  the corporation.  School board meets  CUPE president presents brief  Sargeant's Bay is one of the Coast's fine beaches, marred by an accumulation of debris. -B.J Benson photo  Debris collection  hits snag  Manley Fischer of Drizzle  Enterprises appeared before the  Sunshine Coast Regional  District Board meeting, January  10, to ask for their support in  his effort to obtain funds from  Canada Works.  Mr. Fischer has applied to  Canada Works for a grant to  employ 21 people for one year  in cleaning up the shoreline  from Mission Point to  Sargeant's Bay and in Sechelt  Inlet. Drizzle Enterprises did the  last major clean-up on Sechelt  Inlet and removed 25,000 tons  of wood from the waters including salvage logs.  The latest application has  bogged down; Mr. Fischer  received the impression that  there was money available for  the Sechelt area, but the Vancouver office of Canada Works  has now indicated that only top  priority projects will receive  funding.  "We want to make this a  priority project," said Mr.  Fischer in a conversation with  the Coast News. "So many people are unemployed; our last  project put a lot of dollars into  the community. It's a worthwhile thing to put some  money into the town (of  Sechelt)," he continued.  "There's talk about building  a breakwater or a wall at  Sechelt," he said, "but before  that happens they'll have to  clean up the shoreline. It's good  for the tourists too, to have  clean beaches."  Unskilled young people are  among those employed by the  project; the last clean-up crew  included a parolee, and three  students, according to Mr.  Fischer, and he already has a  long waiting list for the new  project. Said Director Brett  McGillivray, "Twenty-one people sounds fantastic when there  are so many out of work."  "Not only does the clean-up  make the shore-line more attractive," continued Mr.  Fischer, but "it makes the  waters safer too. A lot of people  have been endangered by deadheads and floating debris."  The board members agreed  to send a letter to Canada  Works in support of Mr.  Fischer's application.  The first regular school board  meeting of 1985 received a personal brief from CUPE president, Linda Olsen accusing  Secretary Mills of breach of  faith in connection with the  board's decision that supervisory aides can no longer be afforded, and the consequent  layoffs of 12 people. Because  the brief had not been formally  ratified by union membership it  was, after some discussion, accepted as an expression of personal concern. ,  A meeting has been arranged  for January 16 between the  board and MLAs Don Lockstead and John Reynolds to  discuss the current-budget problems and their effect upon the  quality of education in this  district.  The Provincial Schools  Review 'Committee has  responded to the criticism of  those who attended the meeting  last month to launch the  dialogue on the School Act. The  time frame has been extended to  March 15 and public meetings  will be arranged during  February. School districts will  receive grants of $500 plus 20  cents per pupil (approximately  $1,050). The board hopes to be  able to hire some temporary  help to organize these meetings.  The arbitration board to  which teacher's salary requests  are submitted has handed down  an award of three per cent,  although they agreed that based  on the information provided the  school board had proven their  inability to pay. Final budget  figures are not yet in, so the  three per cent was awarded on  the assumption that the board  may perhaps eventually be in a  position to pay such an increase. In more normal times  the teacher's request for four  per cent would have been considered reasonable.  The settlement will now be  forwarded to Commissioner  Peck and he may be in a position to grapple with the issue of  ability to pay.  Minister of Education  Heinrich plans to meet with all  school boards in. the province  during January if he can. It isn't  yet known when he will come to  .Gibsons but he has requested a  private meeting with trustees  and staff and will meet the press  afterwards.    .  Trustee Buhner and maybe  two parents will attend a  workshop of the Metro Parent,  Teacher Trustee Conference  Planning   Cohimittee   on  January 19.  Trustees discussed at length  the report from Safety Committee chairman Muryn regarding  transportation of children for  intra-mural events and trips on  the peninsula, and whether such  trips should be ruled out  altogether if buses cannot be afforded or whether volunteer  drivers can be properly approved. It was decided to turn the  report over to the superintendent for discussion with the  principals.  A letter of congratulations to  Andrea Rayment of Chatelech  for being selected to attend the  1985 Forum for Young Canadians was authorized.  Note: Linda, Olsen, president  of the local CUPE organization, in a conversation with the  Coast News advised that a  union meeting was held on  January 12 at which a brief  presented to the school board  was overwhelmingly endorsed:  There were, no dissenters to the  vote.  \ irp'.1fa>ijfyJt?'-'?\-tQr\  The day after "Cold Turkey"  day will see the start of a new  smoking policy at.St. Mary's  Hospital. On January 17 smoking will be eliminated in the  general waiting area and the  outpatient area; the policy will  apply to patients, staff and  visitors.  New smoking lounges have  been completed on the first and  second floors for those who  wish to smoke and these will be  the only "smoking areas" in the  hospital aside from the staff  cafeteria.  Said Hospital Administrator,  Nick Vucurevich, "This is a big  step forward and we expect a lot  of controversy. We are concerned about young people smoking," he continued, "they are  smoking more while adults are  smoking less.  "We are treating a lot of individuals with problems directly  related to smoking. This new  policy will deal with the problem of second hand smoke,"  he went on. "The non-smoker's  public cry is getting loud and  clear."  The hospital will not directly  act in asking patients not to  smoke at all,���"That's in the  doctor-patient relationship, a  personal thing,"���but Mr.  Vucurevich sees the new restric  tions as an encouragement to  those who wish to quit. Cigarettes are not sold in the hospital  and have not been for some  time.  This major move by the  Board of Trustees, medical and  hospital administrative staffs  comes after a lengthy period of  deliberation, and the public is  asked for their support and  understanding of these new  regulations. "No smoking"  signs will be posted throughout  the areas affected and it is  hoped by the Board that patients, visitors and staff will cooperate.  SCEPP appeal fails  The recent appeal against  herbicide spraying at Brittain  River brought by the Sunshine  Coast Environmental Protection Project (SCEPP) has been  denied by the Pesticide Appeal  Board, according to spokesperson Carole Rubin.  "We're disappointed, though  not thoroughly surprised," said  Ms Rubin in a conversation  with the Coast News. "The  reason given was that Round-up  has not yet been proven to be  harmful to the environment,  and that further testing would  take too long."  No mention was made in the  denial of the various recommendations made by SCEPP should  the herbicide be used, such as  wider buffer zones and the  monitoring of spraying.  SCEPP members will be  meeting on January 14 to  discuss the denial and to plan  future action.  "It's as if the Board has no  interest in what the public  thinks or wants," said Ms  Rubin, "but we're not finished  yet."  Read aloud to infants  The Sunshine Coast  Teachers' Association has announced that they will be  presenting the parents of each  new baby born in St. Mary's  Hospital during 1985, a copy of  The Read Aloud Handbook by  Jim Trelease.  "This follows up the series of ���  articles on reading aloud printed  in the Coast News", said Brian  Butcher, president of the  Teachers' Association. "It is  our way of stressing how impor-  Peace meeting  The Sunshine Peace Committee will hold a meeting on  Monday, January 14 at 7:30 p.m. at the Roberts Creek  elementary school. New members are welcome as are all those  interested in learning more about the peace issue.  Cold Turkey Day  Wednesday, January 16 is Cold Turkey Day, when those  who smoke are encouraged to take the plunge and quit the  filthy weed. There will be displays at both the Sunnycrest and  Trail Bay Malls, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. where information  will be available.  tant it is for parents to read to  their children and, in a practical  way, providing a guide to do  it."  Trelease's book suggests ways  in which good reading habits  can be developed and gives an  excellent list of appropriate  books to use.  Several studies about reading  indicate that children whose  parents read to them have a  greater desire to read, do better  in reading in school and develop  more positive attitudes toward  reading than those children who  are not read to.  Permission has been received  from St. Mary's Hospital to include the book in their gift  package to new parents. "It  would have been very difficult  to distribute these books  without their help." said Butcher.  Brian Butcher of the Sunshine Coast Teachers' Association presents  Hospital Administrator, Nick Vucurevich with a copy of "The Read  Aloud Handbook" by .Fim Trelease, a copy of which is to be given to  the parents of each baby born at St Mary's in 1985. Coast News, January 14,1985  c  The economies o�� war  One of the most disturbing events of the past week was a  conference of defence associations held in Ottawa at which  Minister of Defence Robert Coates delivered a 28-page address. In it he likened himself to US Defence Secretary  Caspar Weinberger, who, four years ago, found he had to  rebuild the armed forces after a long period of decline.  In the USA, increased military spending gave the  economy a boost it sorely needed, but it brought with it the  largest deficit ever and sent interest rates soaring to new  heights.  A healthy industrial base and increased military spending is the combination Coates sees as saving Canada from  the present recession. On the heels of this announcement,  weapons sellers flocked to Ottawa, looking for their piece  of the $9 billion pie Coates is offering.  This enormous spending may surprise Canadians who  have been living with the idea of a bare cupboard in the  treasury department. Even Coates felt obliged to say, "I  think Canadians will be shocked bv what is required to put  defence back where it should be."  Shocking it is and Canadians should worry. Most of  that $9 billion will be leaving the country since Canada  does not produce much of the sophisticated equipment  Coates says we need. We will be left with an armed forces  in spiffy new uniforms with plenty of the latest weapons  and an economy tied to an expensive non-productive industry that may save the economy in the short run but  which will do nothing to lower the deficit or interest rates.  Worse than that, our credibility as a nation seeking  peace will be called into question and we well be riding on  the Reagan coat-tails more than ever. If there is $9 billion  to spend, let us use it to put Canadians back to work producing goods and services that will improve the quality of  their lives.  5 YEARS AGO  The Kiwanis 36-bed intermediate care building  got officially underway when contractor James  Rowledge and Kiwanis Village Society president  Danny Wheeler signed the contract that should see  the building,ready for occupany by autumn 1980.  First 1980 baby born at St. Mary's Hospital was a  third son for Lynn and John Macdonald of Gibsons.  He tipped the scales at 7 pounds thirteen ounces  (3550 grams) and was born on January 10 at 5:24  a.m.  10 YEARS AGO  Davis W. Fyles writes to the Coast News on behalf  of the Hopkins Landing Waterworks District taking  exception to a description of the Hopkins Waterworks as hopelessly- inadequate in last week's  story about the expansion of Gibsons's village  boundaries. "The Hopkins water system is probably in better condition both presently and potentially than the Gibsons system," says Fyles.  Last ^week's snowfall and treacherous ^driving  conditions have been blamed for at least two accidents.

The%orking man,  whatever dreams he may have had of monstrous labour-saving  machines, went about his daily tasks with hand implements. Now at  logging, now at fishing, now at mining, the worker made his way to  wherever a job was to be found. To a single man, the bunkhouse was  home. To a married man, it was a place in which he must spend months  each year away from his family. Pay was poor, even to sustain a life  without the least of amenities. Camp conditions provided endless topics  for conversation during chance meetings with former fellow workers  between jobs. "Good times" meant steady toil, and "holidays" were  only enforced intermissions between stints of hard manual toil In the  days before Workmen's Compensation and Medicare, injury and  hospitalization became financial as well as personal disasters. The  recuperating worker did not, though, admit to poverty. He was simply  "broke". He would have to "tighten his belt" until he could work  again.  Wilson Creek, 1930's.

Peterson  ^&^mSWSMBXS^SS  Life after birth  Last week we ran a particularly harrowing letter from  the Pro-Life group detailing an  ultra-sonic description of an  abortion of a 10-week fetus.  Without medical testimony to  the contrary we must accept the  facts given therein as accurate  and try to find a rational,  responsible, and moral position  on the question of abortion.  What the letter we received  last week made plain was that  what was at question here was  the taking of a very  recognizable human life. That  fact was brought vividly home.  There are perhaps unexplored  implications, however, for any  group which decides to label  itself pro-life, as opposed to  anti-abortion.  If the chosen designation is to  be pro-life then a much larger  issue is raised than the well-  being of the unborn child alone.  Surely the pro-life forces must  go on and say that they are concerned about the well-being of  the child after birth. Are we to  regard as sacred the unborn  child then allow the born child  to live in suffering and deprivation? Can we justify that  mulnutrition is such a factor in  the lives of our poorest citizens  that their children suffer brain  damage therefrom?  If we are going to take a position against abortion then don't  we have the obligation to ensure  that no mother and child in our  society lives in hardship and  want? Isn't the root cause of  many abortions economic? Will  the pro-life forces raise their  voices with equal passion  against the squandering of our  resources on killing weapons?  Remember that what the world  spends on armaments in a week  could feed and educate every  child in the world for a year.  Remember that when you see  the picture of children starving  in Ethiopia. Will the pro-life  forces add their voices to the  growing clamour of voices  against the obscenity of  weapons/spending?  If we are going to take a position against abortion, is it not  appropriate to apply some  preventive medicine. Could we  not cut the numbers of unwanted pregnancies drastically  if we gave our young people in  puberty some education in the  matter of pro-creation and the  avoidance of unwanted  pregnancies.  And again we come to the  question of armaments. We live  in a world poised on the brink  of nuclear destruction. The  destruction of all life forms on  this planet is just five or six  minutes away at any given moment and could come purely by  technical error, a computer  breakdown. Should such a thing  occur all babies born and unborn would die and all hope of  future babies would die with  them. It would be the abortion  of a planet and of many species  including ours. The suffering so  graphically detailed of the unborn little girl in last week's letter would be repeated billions of  times over. Any organization  which decides to call itself pro-  life should not be specialized in  its focus against one of the  world's ills. To be passionately  pro-life may mean to be anti-  abortion. I rather think it does.  But it means much, much more  besides.  It means educating our young  people rationally so that the incidence of unwanted pregnancies declines; it means striving  for a society in which no mother  and child will suffer want,  which means spending money  on them and it means channelling that money away from the  obscene absurdity of the arms  race, at the same time raising  passionate voices against the  threat of nuclear weapons.  Unfortunately, those who  describe themselves as pro-life  have little to say about endemic  poverty and the suffering that  causes children; they are  generally opposed to sex education because it conflicts with  ��� their religious or moral positions; the writer of last week's  letter also had a paragraph,  which was cut because it was  already a long letter, in which  she praised fulsomely President  Ronald Reagan as a man who  would take a pro-life position  although he is determinedly  steering weapons spending into  the trillions - apparently the  writer is unable to make the  connection between human suffering in the world and the  waste of money on weaponry;  those who describe themselves  as pro-life frequently are among  those who clamour for the  return of the death penalty,  though there is no evidence it is  a deterrent to murder; those  who term themselves pro-life  raise no voice against nuclear  madness, in fact rather seem to  await Armageddon with some  eagerness because they will be  saved. I'm not sure how you  logically reconcile the passionate sympathy for the unborn child with the calm acceptance of the fact that the vast  majority of mankind will roast  eternally in the pits of the  damned - where did all that caring compassion go. Some self-  styled pro-lifers manage the  reconciliation.  Last week's letter may have  persuaded me that abortion on  demand is wrong. However, until those who describe  themselves as pro-life take a  much broader pro-life position  than the one they have so far  evinced, they will continue to  lack credibility.  James H. Tyner  Political economies -  a 19th century answer  by James H. Tyner  The political economists seem  little concerned when they  forecast 10 per cent unemployment for the remainder of the  century and yet it means 10 per  cent of the workforce on  welfare - 10 per cent of the  workforce without hope condemned to near starvation.  The opinion of the political  economists is typical 19th century thinking based upon the  Economy of Scarcity and is  shared by the politicians and  their bankers. The most recent  recession brought on by high interest rates and manipulation of  the money supply is the result of  19th century thinking. These  methods are used to control inflation. The politicians and their  bankers seem to know of no  other way. A very strange thing  in a country so bountiful and  with the ability to produce far  beyond its needs.  In the 19th century it was said  the the clergy was the most ignorant class in society - now, in  the late 20th century, it must  step down for the politicians  and their bankers for they have  yet to enter the 20th century.  By controlling the money  supply and raising interest rates  the politicians and their bankers  saved the country from inflation but in so doing wrecked the  economy - throwing thousands  out of work, bankrupting  farmers and other basic producers, closing industrial plants  and destroying the entire  economies of some countries. In  many industries productivity  has been reduced to a fraction  of capacity, new industries cannot get started and governments  have added to the disarray by  reducing their activities. They  have reduced effective demand  by bringing poverty and loss of  hope. High interest rates have  the world in thraldom. The  politicians can see no way out  -and yet there is no good reason  for this.  Great  changes  have  taken  place in the 20th century particularly since the second world  war. Our productive capacity  has increased many times, our  health services have improved  and our cultural needs advanced.  The greatest advances have  taken place in Japan. With the  wise use of automation involving the use of computers and  robots there has been a tremendous increase in productivity  with advances in many fields  surpassing anything yet seen.  The advanced use of ceramics  should be of great interest to the  western world particularly in the  construction of houses and in  the manufacture of automobile  Spring Tonic  Christmas is over, long weeks of winter lie ahead.  Then in January the seed man s  summer catalogue arrives���  luscious lettuce, tomatoes, corn in living colour,  persuasive paragraphs of succulent superlatives.  My spirit soars, digestive juices flow,  Blessings on this little book and on its sender!  Thanks to them what need have 1  of sulphur and molasses?  Hubert Evans  engines. It is understood that a  house made of ceramics is  cheaper, easier to build and  superior to one made of wood.  The successful manufacture of  an engine made of ceramics has  profound significance for the  metal producers.  If we are to prosper we must  increase our productivity, adopt  all proven advances in the productive process and continue  with research and development.  Only by improving and expanding our productivity can we  bring prosperity and security to  the country.  The politicians and their  bankers with their 19th century  thinking are holding us back.  Improved methods must be  found and the politicians must  adopt them.  The advances of the 20th century have outstripped the  political thinking of the 19th  century.  Instead of looking to the  political economists for answers  the politicians might be better  advised to consider the scientists  with a knowledge of cybernetics  who would understand the  distribution and control of  wealth to the various sectors of  society just as they understand  the distribution and control of  energy in scientific matters.  The productive force and not  the money supply should determine the state of the economy.

It was still dark  and John was approaching his  location so that we, the crew,  could shoot the ferries passing  each other at 7:50 a.m.  The sound man suddenly  sneaked on his tape recorder  For peace  Editor:  "Musings" column before  Christmas, about the 100th  monkey and the nuclear problem, was good. Editorial  January 7, on accidental  nuclear disaster, also good. And  the letter from Hec Rutherford  in the same paper should be  reprinted not just here but in  every paper in Canada.  We who cry for nuclear disarmament don't all call for total  disarmament. We could keep  our conventional arms for protection (or admittedly for aggression too) but dispose of all  nuclear arms.  Nuclear destruction is contagious. Blasts don't just hit  their target, they spread fallout  all over the world.  We already have a epidemic  of cancer from present poisons  in world use; how much worse  would it be with radioactive  fallout everywhere?

Hagan Beggs  Vancouver  I look forward to the coming  discussion on future directions  for education. Perhaps we can  develop a new consensus in  British Columbia that will further ensure the continuance of  quality service to the school  children of our province.  Jack Heinrich  Minister of Education  Sample letter to all principals in  School District No. 46.  Another year in education is  about to pass. Despite the ongoing debate oyer finance, school  administrators such as yourself,  and the teachers and other staff  who work with you, are doing  an outstanding job for the  school children of British Columbia.  I have travelled to a number  of districts throughout the province and have taken time to  visit the schools and listen to  staff and students. I have been  impressed by the diligence,  devotion and good humour that  have been displayed at every  level. Troubles have been put in  their proper context while you  have continued to deliver effective educational services.  Recent public anxiety and  debate over budgets and an atmosphere of frustration have  made the task difficult. I hope  these concerns can be addressed  as a part of the public discussion of education and look forward to your guidance with interest. It is a historic process  which deserves our most  energetic participation.  My best wishes go out to you,  to your staff and to the young  people in your school. Undoubtedly your students have a  much higher appreciation for  your efforts that I can express in  a few words. We must provide  them our unwavering commitment and complete support.  Jack Heinrich  Minister of Education  Editor:  Nineteen Hundred arid  Eighty Five - a very good  welcome to you. Here you are  crisp and smart.  This year's bridges are strong  I'm sure. They span many  chasms which are dark and  deep.  Touching gently the- chords  of memory as each hew year tiptoes into our lives:  Time - the essence of all our  hopes and dreams.  A short bridge between a tear  and a smile. A pressure zone to  be borne and then a pleasant interlude to be enjoyed. Calm  after the storm wherever we  gather our scattered courage.  The first 50 years are the  most difficult, or maybe by that  time we have learned to live one  day at a time.  May we all have many lilac  trimmed days. Somewhere a  sheltered shore. Sheltered from  the    winds    of   adversity.  3.  "Somewhere, beautiful Isle* of  Somewhere".  Try one more yean_*with  thankfulness in our hearts. Try  one more new chapter to add to  the others. 'p.  The season's changes to *be  enjoyed as each one emerges to  push the other into the  background. -  And still here we are scaling  the rugged inclines, that m&ny  dreams may be spun.  The pebbly path of life. The  emerging from the dark  shadows into the bright light; of  Hope. Walking hand in hand  with Faith. ^  Lifting our sights above the  dreariness to find the shining'vision of Charity. To remember  always to dislike the sin but  never the sinner.

Avenue phoned to tell me about  i his sighting of a "sea monster".  ". It was that foggy Thursday a  , couple of weeks ago so he  : figures the beast couldn't have  ; been far offshore.  ;-    He said at first he thought it  was a man standing up in a  :; rowboat but a closer look with  ��� his binoculars proved otherwise.  He thought it had to be about  ] fourteen feet long with a  ; dinosaur-like head about six  ' feet above the water.  . Apparently there have been  ^numerous other reports of such  ��a creature in the waters of  "British Columbia, many times  tin the Straits of Georgia, so  ���I sightings are certainly not pooh-poohed by authorities.

SCHOOL PLANS  Roberts Creek elementary  principal Verne Wishlove  reports that budget cuts are  making things harder but the  school is still planning activities  to make things interesting.  There's a kids' talent night  planned for January, a school-  wide skating party coming in  February, and an expanded student   studies   program   being  organized for the early spring.  MEETING CHANGED  January's Community  Association meeting has been  cancelled so that people can attend the Parent Auxiliary  meeting this Wednesday,  January 16. The special topic is  child abuse, so try'to get out for  it. The meeting starts at 7:30 at  the school. The next Community Association meeting will be  the   third   Wednesday   in  February.  GETTING OUT  Feeling cooped up? Get out  to the Roberts Creek Legion for  bingo or crib. There's bingo  from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday  afternoons and a crib tournament Thursdays at 8 p.m. Don't  let the word "tournament"  throw you, it's just a social  evening.  George    in    Gibsons  Heart monitor for Gibsons  by George Cooper  Treat  Your  "Yacht"  to a  Reberih  in '85  GIBSONS  marina  886-8686  The heart monitor machine  for use in Gibsons Medical  Clinic has been a project of the  Kinsmen Club during the past  year.  The cost of the machine has  almost been fully subscribed, a  Kinsmen spokesman states, but  $1,500 is still to be raised.  "The public has been  responding generously," he  said, "and the latest contribution of $591 has come from the  Weals of Oldershaw Road.  Visitors to their outdoor  Christmas decoration display  filled the collection box to raise  this amount."  The heart monitor machine, a  portable model of the same type  as one at St. Mary's, has two  purposes; the first, to monitor  irregularities, and the second to  provide the electric shock in a  case of stoppage. Because the  first hour of attack is critical,  uks machine can save lives that  would otherwise be in jeopardy  while going to St. Mary's from  Gibsons.  To help with this last $1,500  needed, you may leave cash  donations at the Gibsons  Medical Clinic or Maxwell's  Pharmacy; or you can mail  your donation to the Kinsmen  Club, Box 22, Gibsons.  TRIP TO CHINA  Recently returned from a trip  to mainland China, Bea Rankin  says that she found it most  rewarding.  "For one thing," Bea says,  "the scenery is so very different  from our own, and of course  the architecture has aspects  peculiar to China.  "But the people," she added,  "were the centre of interest on  our tour of the country."  Bea found the people most  friendly towards the tourist, and  very happy in peaceful times,  the civil war now being history.  "I saw no sign of poverty  anywhere on our tour," Bea  said.   "The incentive bonuses  that have been added to the  socialist   organization   in   the  state have done wonders in the  way of individual initiative.  When the production quota for  any one commune is reached,  the individual has time and opportunity to rent land for his  own use, or produce handcrafts  for sale."  Bea went on to say that the  country appears to be in the  midst of an industrial revolution  of some sort - a new way of life  and employment. But there is  still a great deal of hand work.^ ^  Bea noted that western style f k  apartment buildings are being  built in numbers with indoor  plumbing, to replace the older  row housing and outdoor privy.  Air pollution from coal  smoke is a problem which will  be lessened in time as hydroelectric power is developed.  "Only by visiting the country," Bea says, "does a  westerner realize how vast a territory it is. From lush .seaside to  desert; from brisk temperate to  tropical; from wheat and corn  growing regions to the southern  rice paddies."  Bea says the penalties for a  couple having a second child are  strictly enforced; i.e., 10 per  cent cut in income, and no  medical or school costs subsidized. "A couple that has  twins is also penalized for having more than one child," says  Bea.  One scenic sight, the stone  forest  of  Guilin,   an  eroded  limestone   formation,   atid  "another at Kunming are indeed  unique to China.  "The whole countryside and  all city streets are litter-free, a  pleasant change for the western  tourist."  Partly for tidiness but chiefly  for fertilizer, the dray horses on  city streets are outfitted with  canvas catchers under their  tails. (Vancouver council might  take note of this as they gingerly  grant a permit for horse-drawn  buggies in Gastown and  Chinatown.).  Egmont    News  Trustee at school  DON'T WAIT  ANY LONGER!

Will   it   help   to  announce  fitness classes will be starting as  soon as Diana gets her bags unpacked and gets us organized?  THRIFT STORE  The Thrift Store is open every  Wednesday. Notice I'm not  calling it a mini thrift store, as  there is just too much in it to fit  the name. It's literally bursting  at the seams. If you have more  time than money come up and  have a look; the coffee pot's  always on.  EGMONT SCENES  You can also check out the  golf course that is already a  pleasure to see when driving  past. I try to imagine it with  acres of nice green grass. A  building is already shaping up  and it is good to see men working.  If it seems a long way to Egmont, stop at Ruby Lake  Restaurant; the staffs always  friendly and the view so relaxing  you will wonder why we rush up  and down the highway.  Remember that the Backeddy  will not be open any Sundays in  January. It's a tough one but  we'll bite the bullet.  A few days ago I had the  pleasure of hearing and then  watching about 10 huge white  geese fly around and then land  on Waugh Lake. They checked  out and chose the quiet end of  the lake, keeping close together  like a flock of chickens in the  middle, never going near the  shore. This morning only two  were left; they did swim around  as if they were in no hurry to  leave, but it must have been  time, so they cruised to the far  end of the lake and took off. It  seemed to take them half the  lake to really get air-born and  by this time they were right in  front of my cabin, travelling  fast. Though they honked all  the time when there were landing they left without a sound. I  wonder why they didn't leave  with the flock. I heard they  circled North Lake but it's still  covered with ice.  RUMOUR DEPARTMENT  Earls Cove Cafe is changing  hands. The Province may give  up trying to bring us the bad  news.

Everyone  was so enthused, that there is  talk of opening on Friday nights  as well. There is still a need for  adult volunteers to come Tuesday evenings whether you have  a child or not. They could also  use board games, some dart  boards and would appreciate  cookies anytime. Phone  Dorothy Franklin at 885-7622 if  you can donate or volunteer.  Pop was kindly donated and  friendly Peter was put in charge  of its sale at a nominal fee. This  way the young people hope to  raise money to enable them all  to participate in some competitive get togethers. Good going gang!  m  TREE BURNING  Once again the pot luck dinner and tree burning at the hall  was a success. There were 40  adults and children there to enjoy a fine dinner. Afterward,  with Evelyn Bushell on the  piano and Reg Dickson on the  guitar, everyone who was not  washing dishes danced and sang  to the fine music.

Presenting the gift is Sharon Webber, a community education  volunteer for the Cancer Society, (see story) -b. j Demon photo  Student volunteer  by B.J. Benson  As a part of a program to involve and educate students  about the realities of cancer and  the help available from the  Canadian Cancer Society,  Karen Cole was appointed by  her Chatelech teacher, C.  Breadner to attend a Society  conference for youth held at  UBC last May.  This experience has lead  Karen, who is now a grade 12  student at Elphinstone Secondary to become a youth health  representative for school activities on the Sunshine Coast  and, under the guidance of  Sharon Webber, a community  volunteer for the Cancer Society  responsible for education, will  establish programs for Sunshine  Coast students. Films,  pamphlets, posters, etc. will be  used to further the understanding of this serious disease.  As a token of the Society's  appreciation of Karen's involvement, a tote bag was presented  to her at Elphinstone last Friday.  Both Sharon and Karen will  be assisting with "Cold Turkey  Day" this Wednesday at booths  set up in both Sunnycrest and  Trail Bay shopping malls."Cold  Turkey Day" is, of course, the  Cancer Society's annual event  designed to help smokers kick  the habit.  Karen Cole intends to continue her work with the Cancer  Society after graduation and  will attend the next conference  for youth to be held in 1987.  Those wishing to join in the  Cancer Society's volunteer  work on the Sunshine Coast  should contact Anne 885-9596.  Halfmoon Bay  Happenings  Back to business  by Ruth Forrester, 8852418  It's not too late to wish our  faithful Halfmoon Bay and  other readers a very happy and  healthy new year and to  ���apologize for hot having done  so earlier. We have just got  back from the Kootenays where  we spent a delightful Christmas  and. New Year skiing in the  mountains and enjoying the  crisp cold sunny days. And I do  mean cold���somewhere around  twenty below most of the time.  So it's back to the balmy days  on. the Sunshine Coast.  It was quite amazing to  discover how many people there  are in the Kimberley/Cran-  brook area who have family  and friends living here and to  whom seasons greetings are extended.  Having just got back there  has not been time to catch up on  the happenings around here but  will get back to the routine now  and will be glad to hear from  you if you have any items you  would care to pass along. Have  heard that the New Year party  at the hall was a real fun night  but that a lot of people decided  to stay home due to weather  conditions.  Also it has been reported that  the Christmas concert given by  the Halfmoon Bay school  children was quite delightful.  Talking of the school���it seems  that the staff at the school are in  the process of doing a survey in  the area to try to find out how  many children there are who  will in the future be attending  the preschool and kindergarden  come next September. If you  have little ones in that age group  it would be appreciated if you  would get in touch with the  school before January 16 to  help out with these statistics.  The future staffing of the  school will depend on these  figures.

THE HALFMOON HAMS  Try to keep Saturday,  January 19 free to make your  way to the Parthenon where  there will be an evening of  entertainment by the Halfmoon  Hams. These are always real  fun nights where you find  yourself getting into the spirit of  the fun and enjoyment that the  Hams send out to their audiences.  It was so great to receive  greetings from some of our fans  and there was one special one  which was much appreciated by  all of us. Will not give the name  of the sender but would like to  pass along her greeting. Quote:  "To you sensational Halfmoon  Bay Hams���a thank you for  your heartwarming entertainment throughout the year. Your  music delights and excites���you  all are tops in our book. You  are bringing much happiness to  many people, have a wonderful  musical New Year". Many  thanks to the nice lady who sent  these greetings and to all of you  who did likewise.

Coast News, January 14,1985  Kay and Frank Zantolas of Roberts Creek don't need "Cold  Turkey" day to convince them that smoking is for the birds.  ���Dianne Evans pboto  Pender People 'n'  Places  Traditionally, January 1 is a  time when people review the  past year and set goals for the  New Year. Increasingly, Canadians pledge to stop smoking  and, in doing so, find  themselves facing the 'Quit  Smoking Blues'.  Statistics Canada's most recent study reports that 37 per  cent of all Canadian smokers  tried to quit in 198.1. With so  many people trying to quit, it's'  not surprising that the 'Quit  Smoking Blues' have reached  epidemic proportions.  The condition is characterized by excessive anxiety,  edginess, irritability, sleeplessness and fear of weight gain.  For all those suffering from the  'Quit Smoking Blues', take  heart. The following words of  encouragement will help give  you the willpower and strength  A new year and a new job  by Joan Wilson, 883-9606  S  1985���a fresh new year, with  renewed hope for a brighter  future. And for me, a new job!  As you see, I am taking over  from Jane McOuat, who produced a super column. I enjoyed reading her Pender Peo-  pple 'n' Places, and plan to con-  t^finue in the same vein - positive,  Subjective and constructive. I  f^Quld like to hear from you,  |$gaj��ticularly clubs and organizations, with news of upcoming  Z events, new babies, special anniversaries, local projects and  items of interest to Pender Harbour. I also plan to do a short  feature on one special "Pender  '$. Person" every month. Any sug-  v< gestions? The best time to reach  *J rije is between 8 and 9 a.m. You  �� could also catch me at the IGA  *��� or;, flag me down as I roar  ** around the Harbour.  ���jji ^or those who have yet to  m meet me, here's a little  ^background. B.C. born, raised  JtjarVd educated, I moved to  ^Render Harbour three and a  "^ half years ago when my hus-  fiband came to Pender Harbour  7>$#>ndary. We bought a house  tjjri; Francis Peninsula and have  ��t\yo children in school. I am  ?Jwoud to be a part of this com-  ^munity, vand; I, Jiave met some  jri&vfolks here. Good things are  ^"m^periing in Pender Harbour,  affd I aim to tell you about  them.  BUCKLE UP!  New Year's babies here and  elsewhere around the province  have been given infant carseats  by the BCMA. Great idea!  EVERY baby needs a carseat:  even a minor fender bender  could cause serious injury to a  little one who isn't strapped in.  Please, buckle up your children,  even for a short trip to the mail  box. They depend on you for  their safety.  SNOW NEWS  December snowfalls caught  many by surprise, and made  driving hazardous. We were en  route to Nanaimo on that terrible Saturday, and drove off the  ferry 35 minutes late into a  veritable blizzard. On the little  ferry to Gabriola Island, we  floated in a swirl of fog and  snow, like the Flying Dutchman. But the skiing was terrific! I hear that many crosscountry skiers were schussing  around the snowy roads on the  Sunshine Coast. Cross-country  skiing is great exercise for all  ages���if you can walk, you can  ski. It's not expensive, you get  to see the countryside, and there  are no lineups. The new golf  course will be an excellent crosscountry ski area when it snows  in the future. I have skied on  several golf courses, and recommend them highly. Even in the  worst weather, we'll have a  community recreation site.  GOLF RAFFLE  Tickets will be available for  the Golf Course Society raffle  at the usual outlets. Two dollars  gives you a chance at prizes of  $500, $150 and $50.  . Work continues on the golf  course, employing local people.  That's the good news. The bad  news is that $250 worth of  lumber was stolen from the site.  HELLO - GOODBYE  The Harbour welcomes back  Bruce Forbes, Wendy Simmons  and daughter Rachel from their  year in Australia. Bruce taught  PE at Scarborough high school  in central Perth, introducing the  Aussie lads to basketball. Wendy took an art course, and  Rachel picked up a delightful  accent.  As they returned, we bade a  sad farewell to Tim and Robyn  Harrington, the Australian couple who exchanged with Bruce  and Wendy. Robyn and Tim  loved their stay in.Canada, and  joined in many activities. Their  address in Perth is 16 Gull  Street, Marmion, Western  Australia 6020.  WILDLIFE SOCIETY  News from the Wildlife  Society: their December 8  Turkey Shoot was a great success, with 154 participants in  nine events. I've never been to a  Turkey Shoot, but I plan to try  one. Executive for 1985 are:  president, Bill Griffith; vice-  president, Art Plunkett;  secretary, Mary Walker;  treasurer, Harold Lennox;  directors, Pam Hedderson,  Dave Maw, Sam Walker, Bill  McNaughton, Lome Smith,  Tom Held and Lil Beharrell.  FITNESS  Did you put on a few pounds  over the holidays? Now is the  time to get back into shape at  the Pender Harbour Aquatic  Centre. Robi and staff have a  good program of fitness sessions for all shapes .and sizes. If  situps don't turn you on, hbw  about a workout on the Global  Gym, or a leisurely swim and  sauna? Call the pool at  883-2612, and do your.body  good.  SCHOOL MEETING  Don Fairweather, the new  school trustee for our area, will  be speaking to the parents at  Madeira Park elementary on  Tuesday, January 22 at 7:30.  Non-parents are welcome.  Come out and support your  school and your school board.  Effective local government  depends on informed local participation.  BRIDGE WORK  If you didn't take a picture of  the little white wooden bridge  over Canoe Pass before  December, it's too late!  Highways crews are busy sawing it up piece by piece. In early  December a temporary bridge  was placed on the south side,  and for a while drivers dodged  cranes, wires and orange-vested  workers. Over Christmas, we  enjoyed the luxury of TWO  bridges, but work has resumed,  and by the end of March, says  Bill Turner of the highways  department, Francis Peninsula  residents will have a modern  concrete bridge to replace the  picturesque but slippery old  one.  Until 1956, Beaver Island was  accessible by water only. The  one-lane bridge built in that  year was replaced by a wider  one in 1972. Long-time  residents with stories and  perhaps pictures of that first  bridge, please give me a call. I'd  ;   -COAST NEWS  CLASSIFIEDS  ��� ..   - ���   n'*' :���."'���*.  IB & j Store  i.n Hall'moon -Bay. ������.  unlil- .rroon S^l.urday..  ���A  FiT��in<Hy  P��<lpt�� PI'rc*>  like to write up a little of this  history  of  the   Harbour   for  newcomers like myself.  VOLLEYBALL  Adult mixed volleyball starts  up on Wednesday, January 15  at the secondary gym, 7:30 to  9:30. Come out for good fun  and exercise.  COLD TURKEY DAY  Another way to do your body  good is to break the cigarette  habit. Cold Turkey Day is  January 16. I've never been a  smoker, so I won't preach,  but...the Canadian Cancer  Society will be happy to give  you all the statistics and information you need to convince  you to quit.  GYMNASTICS  If your five to eight year old  is interested in gymnastics,  Wendy Simmons will be  teaching 10 sessions at the  PHSS gym, Wednesdays starting January 23, from 5:45 to  7:15. Cost is a reasonable $24,  or $30 for two or more���that's  a real bargain. Parents will be  asked to assist for one session to  ensure safety. Call Wendy at  883-9271 for any further information.  to  beat  the   'Quit   Smoking  Blues'.  A package of 20 cigarettes  costs approximately $1.90, and  if you smoked approximately  one pack a day, you would expect to spend $13.30 each week.  Over one year, that amounts to  $691.60 and means you smoked  7,300 cigarettes! This doesn't  take into account tax hikes or  increased consumption on your  part.  The bottom line is that smoking one package of cigarettes a  day for the rest of your life will  cost you at least $700 a year.  Over the course of a 40 or 50  year smoking habit, that  amounts to $28,000 to $35,000  gone up in smoke!  The typical smokers' lament,  "I'd quit smoking tomorrow  but I'm afraid I'll gain weight",  is one of the most often cited  reasons for not quitting. In fact,  studies indicate that among persons who give up smoking, only  33 per cent gain weight while  another third actually lose  weight because they feel better  and exercise more. The remaining third maintain the same  weight.  Increasing physical activity,  keeping healthy, low-calorie  food substitutes nearby and  keeping your hands busy are  just a few of the things you can  do to help control your weight  while you fight the 'Quit Smoking Blues'.  Sometimes the sheer  willpower required to quit/cold  turkey' is not enough to make  you stop smoking. It's not a  sign of weakness to seek help in  coping with the physical  withdrawal symptoms  associated with smoking cessation.  Today, most researchers  agree that physicians must treat  the whole patient, help them  understand and readjust their  social smoking patterns as well  as ease nicotine withdrawal and  curb weight gain.  So, while the 'Quit Smoking  Blues' might seem unbearable at  the start, in time they will pass.  You will be able to look back on  this period with pride that you,  too, were able to defeat one of  the most destructive menaces of  our society���the cigarette.  ii'-'ji  t:v-������������'  -+*-rt3&i&Kmml$ " 1  Waterfront Cottage  1 bedroom with skylight, windows face sunrise and:  sunset.

Jean and Bert Sherlock were in the  Trail Bay Mall last week to sell tickets: first prize is a one-of-a-kind wool rug, made by Mrs. Sherlock, second prize is an AM-FM clock radio, and third prize is an appliqued cushion.  ���Diaiine Evans photo  Sechelt    Scenario  Books for young needed  by Peggy Connor, 885-9347  BOOKS FOR LITTLE  PEOPLE NEEDED  The St. Mary's Hospital  Auxiliary, Sunshine Coast,  Sechelt Branch were responsible  for 20,814 volunteer hours for  1984, this was 3,000 over 1983.  As a result of these hours the  Branch contributed $4,000 to  the auxiliary for St.' Mary's  Hospital.  Needed at the hospital are  picture books for very young  children; they may be left at the  information desk at the  hospital.  Members are reminded their  dues are due and payable before  January 31; they may be paid at  Uncle Mick's Shoe Store; Betty  McKay is a member and does  her part by accepting dues and  this is much appreciated by the  members.  There is a great need  for  volunteer help especially with  physiotherapy; this consists of  bringing      patients,      by  wheelchair, down to the therapy  room, and a few other odd jobs  that allows more time for the  physiotherapists to do the actual  therapy.  iv^The extended care^unit also ���  needs help in the ECU lounge  and taking patients on outings.  The hooked rug, at present  near completion, will be raffled  off; at the annual spring public  luncheon to be held on Thursday, May 30 at the Sechelt Indian Band Hall.  BUSINESS AND  PROFESSIONAL WOMEN  The January meeting, Tuesday, January 15 will be at Pebbles Restaurant, in the Driftwood Inn starting at 6:30 p.m.  The Sunshine Coast Business  and Professional Women are  happy to have new members or  enquiring visitors at their  meetings; call 885-9320 if you  wish to attend.  This month's guest speaker is  Bruce Richmond, who will be  talking on accounting.  REPRESENTATION ON  RATEPAYERS'  West Sechelt now has a  representative on the Area "B"  Ratepayers'. At a meeting of  the Ratepayers' Board last week  Paul Toynbee filled a vacancy  on the board left by Peggy Connor, who is now Director for  Area"B".  The Toynbees have the corner store at Northwest Bay and  Mason   Roads,   a  convenient  spot for other West Sechelt  residents to stop in and take out  their membership in the  Ratepayers'.  The next public meeting of  the organization will be held in  the West Sechelt school, tentative date is February 19.  CLOWNS POSTPONED  The January 19, children's  program "The Showroom  Dummys" has been postponed  until February, so watch for the  new date.  SHORNCLIFFE  AUXILIARY MEETING  The regular meeting of the  Shorncliffe Auxiliary is Tuesday, January 15, at 1:30 p.m. at  the Friendship room of Bethel  Baptist Church. An increase in  membership is needed as there  are not enough people to  operate a viable auxiliary.  To alleviate this situation the  group will hold a membership  drive in the Trail Bay Mall in  Sechelt on January 17, 18, and  19. Here is your opportunity to  ask where and what help is  needed. The volunteer director,  Margaret Gimmell, would be  very happy if you were to phone  her at 885-2677, then she could  tell the various areas where  volunteers are needed.  They are needed for one to  one visiting, as pianists and  organists, to help with crafts  (not necessary to be a craftsper-  son) mostly doing crotcheting  and knitting, and for outings.  Winter Olympics are on the  go at Shorncliffe with bowling,  shuffleboard, cribbage and  checkers; winner will receive a  plaque.  January 7, Mary Pellat's  Scandinavian films were well  received. January 8, Neil Parker  from the Baptist Church gave  the service. The same day the  art classes with Roberta McKib-  bin and Kathleen Poole started  up again.  Monday the music therapist  from Abbotsford comes up.  The Anglican Church holds  the service for this Tuesday.  Wednesday the people who  live at Shorncliffe will visit with  the folks at Adult Day Care in  Greenecourt returning the visit  paid by Day Care to Shorncliffe  recently.  At Harmony Hall  by Gladys Coates  Our January meeting was  opened by Jim Munro with  about 70 members in attendance. Remember folks, it is  time to renew your membership  for '85. ^  Dr. Johnson, area representative from head office of  OAPO, was guest speaker. He  had some helpful suggestions  regarding the annual convention which is to be held in  Courtenay in June. Also the  possible use of grants from New  Horizons. One course available  is leadership training, aifjd  perhaps we can get further information if there is anyone interested. He also stressed thev  importance of exercise for\  seniors, and hoped that more \  members would take advantage  of the exercise classes conducted  by Lily Degnan^whp is a  qualified instructor. ~These;  classes are held on Mondays at  10:30 a.m. and Fridays at 1:30  p.m.  After a short speech, Dr.  Johnson inducted the officers  into their term of office.

They met  January 8 and laid some extensive plans for future actions  outside of what may happen in  regard to our proposed new  building. Members are requested to make note of these  proposed dates on their calendars so that none can say "I  didn't know the date".  The March Tea will be held  March 30 with the doors opening at 1:30 p.m. May 4 will be  the date of our annual plant  sale. That gives us time to get  our seeds ordered and planted  so that we can fill the gardens of  Sechelt with flowers for those  beautiful summer days.  Then, June 15 we will have a  Strawberry Tea (love those rich  red ripe berries). I'll be there.  The fall plant sale will take  place October 5, but this does  not mean the cessation of our  regular activities. They will  carry on as usual until summertime. Exercise classes, carpet  bowling, aerobics, dancing,  5-pin bowling, whist and cribbage afternoons and anything  else we can find to do that will  be to the benefit of our  membership.  I almost missed one important date in the list above. Add  to it August 16 for our annual  picnic. Come and have a good  time.  I cannot give you any news  about our new hall at this time  except to say we have a number  of wonderful letters from many  sectors indicating support for  our endeavours because the  value to be derived will be of inestimable value to all facets of  our community. We thank all  these organizations for their  support.  COMMUNITY INFORMATION FORUM  A-Gorrimunity Information Forum, jointly sponsored by the Department of Veterans Affairs and Pacific  Command of The Royal Canadian Legion, will be held  at 1 p.m. Sunday, January 20th in the Legion Hall,  Wharf Street, Sechelt.  The aim of the forum is to provide information on  benefits available to war veterans and their dependents and to all senior citizens generally.  Information will be provided on veterans legislation, including new legislation which provides  eligibility for pensions for widows who have not  previously been eligible.  With the cooperation of officials of National Health  and Welfare and the Provincial Ministries of Human  Resources and Health, information will also be  provided on Old Age Security Pensions, Guaranteed  income Supplement, Canada Pension Plan, and provincial legislation such as Guaranteed Income for Need,  Shelter Aid for Elderly Renters, Etc.

Hazel Coxall has had to take  a leave of absence from the  painting class due to her husband's illness, and Jessie Morrison kindly offered her services  to fill the gap.  All other activities are going  well. Carpet bowling day,  Wednesday, sees about 48 eager  seniors competing to get those  points on the scoreboard.  Another keen session of darts is  also underway. Each contest  goes for six weeks, and anyone  interested can contact Norm  Lambert for details.  Social afternoon bingo will be  held each Monday of this  month; January 14, 21 and 28  at 1:30 p.m.  The Friday fun nights, which  is the playing of whist and cribbage followed by darts is held  every Friday night at 7:30, and  will continue until the end of  May. Friday, January 25 at 6  p.m. it is potluck dinner, all  members welcome.  January 5 a full bus load of  members went to Ice Capades.  It was a beautiful day, and the  outing was much enjoyed by all.  Next month a trip to the B.C.  Sugar refinery is planned, with  possibly a few hours at the  Guildford Shopping Mall in  Surrey.  A TV program "The Best  Years" to be shown on channel  two for 10 weeks starting  January 16 at 7:30 p.m. was announced, and could prove very  interesting to all seniors, and  others who are trying to improve the quality of life during  these "best years".  Another dinner is planned for  January 22 at 6 p.m. at the  Gypsy Restaurant with Steve  White at the piano leading a  singsong. About 40 people  showed up for the dinner there  in December, so phone Steve if  you plan to attend.  Next meeting in Harmony  Hall is February 4 at 1:30 p.rn.  See you there.!

The  eternal battle for physical fitness has started again and there  we all were once again, purple in the face huffing and puffing  our way through the dreaded "cardio" ordeal. I didn't dare  admit what I'd got on the supper menu for that night. We  started off with the best of intentions:���  1. Slice  chicken  breast  into  thin  strips,   minus  bones  of  course.  2. Wash and dry lettuce, line a salad bowl.  3. Slice the tomato, cucumber and onion thinly and arrange  artistically!  4. Chop olives and mix with chicken. Pile in centre of salad.  5. At serving time mix oil, lemon juice and seasonings and  pour over.

Pour  red wine over and top up with water. Stir and cook at  325�� Ffor 2 hours.  3. Remove from oven. Blend remaining seasoned flour with  goulash liquid. Return to casserole. Cook for a further half  hour.  The third thing on the menu was sinful. So sinful I hardly  dare mention it. I'm certainly not going to help your waistline  increase by giving you the menu - but was it ever good! Promise not to tell and I'll whisper ��� blueberry cheese cake!  I'm trying to pull in my abdominals but I think they keep going away somewhere!  Here's to fitness - and svelteness - and my swim suit!  It was after that I started to slip.

This week's winner is #228 since we started this  popular in-store feature. That's a total of well over $ 1 1,000  worth of groceries that we have given out since the feature  was started.  Put it another way, that's 228 smiles on shoppers' faces  since we started our Real Win Draw. Many have told us that  the $50 worth of food came at a most happy time, for the  economic difficulties currently being endured have touched  many of our customers and their families and they appreciate  anything that eases their burden however briefly.  All of us can understand these feelings and surely, when we  contemplate the terrible pictures from the continent of  Africa, we realize that difficult as these times are for us here  in British Columbia, we are still blessed compared with much  of mankind.  This is not to say that we should be complacent, for bad  times can get worse if remedial action is not taken. Already  the experiences being endured are being likened to those experienced in the 1930s and young people whose  background did not prepare them for such difficult times are  trying to learn how to cope.  At Ken's Lucky Dollar we try to bring to our community a  good selection of nourishing foodstuffs at prices which are  competitive with those to be found elsewhere. We, like our  customers, are practising restraint and endeavouring to  weather difficult times with as much good cheer and skill as  we can muster.  We will go forward into 1985 with hope and determination. We will do everything humanly possible to improve our  own situation; we will waste no time in self-pity, remembering that always there are those much worse off than we are;  we will continue to provide the best service we possibly can  in our chosen field of endeavour; and week after week we  will hold our popular Real Win Grocery Draw, certain that at  least one local household every week will feel that good fortune has smiled on it.  We believe that with good heart and good humour we will  turn this difficult comer together, we of the Sunshine Coast.  Best wishes for 1985 for all our customers.

If you've  jalready sent this one off to  Cousin Rorie, you, might drop  .   him a note to say that while the  ������ illustrations are great, he ought  \  to take the text with a grain of  I salt. While the author is careful  to point out that "no single  book can hope to tell the complete history of Vancouver",  the reader has the right to expect that what the book does tell  is   correct.   Unfortunately,  although Kluckner did consult  with the descendents of some of  the pioneers, he relied too often  on newspaper accounts of "the  way it was", and we all know  ;   Ithat newspapers are not infallible (the present paper excepted,  of course!). As a result, the  ;    biographies of many of his personalities contain glaring errors,  and many of his feature articles  '^reflect the newspaper bias of the  v4jJNme, not historical fact.  |*pKluckner's;wfeter coldurs of  |||$ancouver scen^-^re^exedlent,  $$|pecially those of west end  ^���'apartments  and  houses.  The  photographs are good but the  v ^average west coaster has seen  A./.host of. them before.  (We'd  have been happier to see them  again   if  the ^author   hadn't  removed   the   photographer's  name from the bottomSof each  picture, especially those taken  by our grandfather, Harry T..  Devine in 1886-1890!). X  Much better value for your  money is to be found in Cyril  Belshaw's The Complete Good  Dining Guide to Greater Vancouver Restaurants. This nice fat  paperback gives dining-out  recommendations all the way  from Horseshoe Bay to  Langley, area by area, so that  you don't have to thumb  through the whole book to find  a restaurant near at hand. It  also contains a list of  restaurants where children are  especially welcome, and another  list which organizes restaurants  according to cuisine.  . The author is frankly subjective in the ratings he has allotted  to these eating spots, but his  choices for three stars range  from Bridges with its gourmet  seafood to Max's Delicatessen  on Oak Street. When Belshaw  condemns a restaurant he does  so with style as in his comment  on the food services provided by  the B.C. Ferries: "The only  solution is to bring your own  food aboard until someone gets  the brilliant idea of improving  standards. Certainly, at this  point, the food on B.C. Ferries  is the worst publicity for the  B.C. tourist industry anyone  could have invented."  Vancouver The Way It Was  by Michael Kluckner, Whitecap  Books, $39.95.  The Complete Good Dining  Guide to Greater Vancouver  Restaurants by Cyril Belshaw,  Harbour Publishing, $8.95.  Adult Day Care is one of the  primary support services in  B.C. that enables disabled  adults to remain in the familiar  surroundings of their own  homes. It assists them to maintain their independence and enjoy a more active lifestyle.  Persons eligible under the  Long Term Care Program are  referred to a centre in their  neighbourhood for a mixture of  health, educational, social, and  recreational activities. Staff in  the centres monitor health and  emotional needs and help clients  find additional assistance where  appropriate. Centres also provide relief and support for the  caregiver at home.  Adult Day Care participants  pay a minimal fee for a hot  meal at noon, snacks and  transportation. But, programs  depend to a large extent on  community volunteers for their  variety and success in operation.  Aldersprings, the locally  operated centre, currently is  looking for volunteers to assist  in numerous ways. Drivers with  large cars are needed for monthly outings and driver/visitors  are being sought to take clients  on visits to homes of other  Alderpsrings members. Other  volunteers are needed to play  bridge and give companionship  to a client with Alzheimer's  disease.  Support these members of  our community to achieve a  fuller, more involved lifestyle.  They have much to give in  return. Contact the Volunteer  Action Centre at 885-5881 for  more information.  Next week: more on other  local programs for seniors.

"Katimavik" is a word that is  obviously well known here in  Gibsons. But for those of you  who are not familiar with the  program; it is a non-profit national youth development program funded by our federal  government.  Our group began its nine  month Katimavik program on  August 29 and will continue  through until May 27. Our first  trimest began in Drummond-  ville, Quebec at La Village  Quebecois D'Anton. While  there we lived and worked at a  historical tourist village. The  work ranged from looking after  the animals to making  homemade ketchup and other  perserves. There was also a  large variety of work in between, such as refinishing furniture, winterizing the houses  and shops and doing other  maintenance.  We arrived here in B.C. on  November 28. There are 12 people in our group, three from  Ontario, five from Quebec, two  from B.C., and one each from  Manitoba and Alberta. Some of  us have been placed in  Langdale, Roberts Creek and  Gibsons elementary schools.  One is at Elphinstone secondary, a couple in the museum  and a few are working for the  town of Gibsons.  The town of Gibsons has cer- ���  tainly made us feel welcome and  provided a very nice relaxed atmosphere. There are many lovely places that we have already  found to explore and there are  many more yet to discover, The  pool will certainly be made  good use of also!  All in all, we are glad to be  here and would like to give the  town of Gibsons a big thank  you. We have met many people  already and look forward to  meeting many more.

Members of  the New Democratic Party had  predicted from the start that  once elected the new government would reverse itself on  many if not most of its election  promises. Many Canadians are  now recovering from the shock.  The economic statement  presented by Michael Wilson in  the House of Commons during  the first weeks of the new  government's life reminded  British Columbians of. that  presented by a newly re-elected  Socred government in 1982.  Gone were the promises of  "tens of thousands of new  jobs". Gone were the promises  of compassionate government  which would never entertain  cuts" in social services. Universality of social programs was no  longer a "sacred trust". Gone  were the promises of fair taxation, where the wealthy and the  large corporations would pay  their fair share.  ' Instead Canadians were ask-  e{l to accept a package deal of  cuts in social programs, increased user fees and a number of.  o|He*r| measures intended to  red'ifte the deficit. The, New -  Democratic Party estimates that  the' new government program  could cost Canada as many as  50*000 jobs. British Columbians  know full-well the results of  such a program, as the province's unemployment and  social welfare statistics bear out.  jo justify abandoning their  election promises, the Conservatives claimed that once in office they discovered the "cupboard was bare". Was it  necessary for the Conservatives  tofake office before they realized, the sorry state of the Canadian economy? They must have  been the only ones that didn't  know.  The promise of an open  government has not materialized. Members of the opposition  have watched a wave of  paranoia sweep over the government bureacracy. The. new  government has clamped a lid  of secrecy over the affairs of  state. They refuse to provide information to the House of  Commons. Briefings between a  New Democratic member of  parliament and a public servant  are now attended and scrutinized by a designated member of  the minister's staff. The days of  informal briefings and constructive dialogue are over.  Departmental officials have  also been forbidden from talking to.the press, which has stemmed the flow of information to  the Canadian public, to the  point of creating a government  cloaked in secrecy. This lack of  trust extends to Conservative  members' staff, who have been  instructed not to associate with  the press unless on official  business.  Each day that the Conservatives are in power, they are  acting more and more like the  previous Liberal government.  The charges of ministerial arrogance, once leveled by the  Conservatives in Opposition, is  now being used against them.  Members of the Opposition are  being inconvienced by these new  changes as is the press. However, those who truly will be af-  Drop off your  COAST NEWS  CLASSIFIEDS  at  Books & Stuff  Sechsli  until noon Saturday  "A FrtajncMy PaaopI* Piooo"  fected by the change to a closed  and secretive government will  be Canadians.

Coast News, January 14,1985  13.  !^^^^^M^Mi^fW^^M  by Maryanne West  What are we going to do  about the CBC?  I know there are those who  don't approve of public broadcasting, those who don't care  and maybe even those who just  feel it's a luxury we can no  longer afford, but there are still  some of us who believe the CBC  is, or should be an invaluable  national asset. Not only the  lifeline which holds this  geographically impossible country together but the showcase  for many of our creative talents.  Are we going to meekly stand  by and watch government  emasculate the corporation and  eventually destroy its ability to  enrich the cultural fabric of  Canada?  I realize that it's impossible  for any of us to mount a campaign of hands off the CBC,  let's keep it as it is. We all have  heard, if we haven't witnessed,  tales of extravagance and ex-  .cess, all of which we believe  should be properly investigated.  Those who use public money  have it in trust to use wisely and  for the corporate good, that  goes without saying. But are we  prepared to see parts of the  CBC sold off to the private sector? Does Canada need more  commercial television?  One would have expected  that such a suggestion would be  howled down from here to St.  John's but I've heard barely a  whisper. Maybe the suggestion  isn't taken seriously, and I imagine it's a kite being flown to  test the wind. However, it  would be foolish to presume  that the government might not  quite happily espouse the idea  especially if no-one seems to  care.  We are after all shareholders  of this outfit - it belongs to us.  We should have some input into  decisions the government  makes, even about budget cuts  and   most   certainly   if   any  Student honoured  It is some five years since a  student from the Sunshine  Coast was chosen to attend the  annual Forum for Young Canadians in Ottawa, so congratulations are in order for Andrea  Rayment of Chatelech secondary who has been honoured.  Andrea is one of 40 students  selected from B.C. and was  chosen from 114 applications  received from 70 schools.  The Forum for Young Canadians, a government sponsored  busy week in the nation's  capital brings together some 400  young people from across the  country to participate in mock  cabinet discussions, stage an  inter-provincial conference, visit  with their MP's, watch the  House of Commons, the Senate  and the Supreme Court at  work.  The object of the one week  program is to give students first  hand experience of the workings  of government, its difficulties  and complexity and a better  understanding of Canadians  from coast to coast.  Previous participants in the  Forum from the Sunshine Coast  were Carl Johnston and Kelly  Henry.  THE UNITED CHURCH  OF CANADA  Sunday Worship Services  ST.

What  about all those capital assets  across the country? We have a  great deal of money invested  the CBC, mightn't it be better  to make sure it works for us.  There must be alternatives to  cutting Canadian programming  and putting necessary equipment replacement on hold.  So, what can we do?  We were very successful in  getting our views heard* by the  CRTC recently and the Suncoast Television Society executive is willing to give the  same support we provided for  PBS. We can. write letters to the  prime minister, for forwarding  to the minister of communications, always a good idea to let  the boss know what is going on.  We can copy letters for our MP  and also for the CBC where the  feeling that no-one cares leads  to low morale and in its turn to  sloppy broadcasting.  We could invite Len Lauk,  head of the B.C. Region CBC  for a discussion. We could  make a video-tape expressing  our feelings honestly and  naturally, something which has  proven most effective with the  CRTC.  We can develop a brief expressing the concerns of people  on the Coast. Any or all of these  things would be better than doing nothing.  As with the PBS, Channel 9  issue, we may not win, (that  decision should come any day  now) but this government has  shown itself willing to respond  to public concern and some of  its restraint decisions have  already been rescinded when  people pointed out the shortsightedness of the economies.  Student for  Gibsons  pharmacy  Mr. John Shaske, owner and  manager of Howe Sound Pharmacy in Gibsons, has been appointed clinical instructor for  the University of British Columbia's Faculty of Pharmaceutical  Sciences.      ^ v^  " One of only sever^sc^narried '  in the province, Mr. Shaske will  instruct professional licensed  pharmacists, participating in a  full-time specialized clinical  pharmacy diploma program at  UBC, at his pharmacy in Gibsons. The first student will be in  residence at Howe Sound Pharmacy in March and will be able  to assist John in serving his  clients. Both John and his  students welcome patients'  questions on drug-related concerns.  Literacy  tutor  program  Do you know an adult who  wants to improve their basic  reading and writing skills? Do  you read letters or articles to an  adult? Do you write letters or  fill out forms for an adult? If  you do, you could help these  people by telling them about  ABLE.  ABLE matches adults who  want to improve their basic  reading and writing skills with  trained volunteer tutors. Tutors  work with the student two hours  per week, usually in the  student's home. ABLE is sponsored by Continuing Education,  School District #46 (Sunshine  Coast). The program is geared  to the individual student's  needs. The student's anonymity  is protected at all times.  If you know or suspect an  adult needs help with basic  literacy, you may find it difficult to tell them about our  program. This is a common  reaction. For some reason, people often feel uncomfortable  telling a person about our program. There is no easy answer  to this problem. We urge you to  tell them. If they have very poor  reading skills it is unlikely they  will read this article. Even if  they can read this article they  may not read it because many  adults who have poor reading or  writing skills prefer to avoid  print.  With New Year's resolutions  fresh in our mind, now is a  good time to suggest that this  should be the year for improving their reading and writing  skills.

Michael Jay reported that a  door to his boat had been forced open but that nothing had  been stolen; the owner of the  "Whirleywaugh", Mr. Pearl,  reported the theft of a $2,500  marine radio telephone.  On January 8, an attempt to  break into the premises of the  Howe Sound Pharmacy was  foiled when police were alerted.  The suspect was gone when  police arrived and nothing was  taken from the pharmacy.  On: January 15, a Sanyo  Walkman radio valued at $100  was reported stolen from a Datsun pick-up parked on Marine  Crescent. The radio had been  left on the front seat of the  unlocked vehicle.  Several incidents of vandalism were reported on the  iifth; John Kavanagh reported  that $100 worth of damages  were. inflicted on a washroom  located on the second story of  the Cedar Plaza. Truffles  reported that a large rock was  used to smash a window at the  rear ot tne siore and the owner  of a residence located on  Wildwood Road reported that  an iceball was thrown at his  residence, smashing a stain-  glass window valued at $50.  SECHELT RCMP  On January 4, an attempt  was made to break into  Capilano College. Some minor  damage was done to a rear door  in the attempt. On the fifth, entry was gained into the Bethel  Baptist Church through the  front door of the building.  Stereo equipment valued at  $400 was stolen.  On January 6, a Francis  Peninsula Road residence was  broken into and entered.  Nothing was taken.  As a result of a joint operation of the Prince George and  Sechelt Detachments, 30-year  old Sechelt resident Thomas  Herbert Stanway was convicted  of conspiracy to traffic cocaine  last December 14 in Prince  George Provincial Court. Stan-  way is presently serving a 9  months sentence in Prince  George. He was also given two  years' probation. Stanway's arrest took place in Sechelt.  Government approaches to  economic problems differ greatly from country to country and  even among provinces.  Here is British Columbia, our  economic performance remains  poor, while in other areas,  government initiatives have  been able to turn around the  economy to provide rmich-  . needed growth and employment.  In Australia the election of a  progressive labour government  18 months ago has resulted in a  dramatic transformation from  an economy in severe decline, to  the fastest growing economy in  the western world.  In the year between June,  1983 to 1984, economic growth  was over ten per cent, the best  performance in the 25 years for  which quarterly national accounts have been compiled in  that country. During that same  period 230,000 Australians  found employment, compared  with a job loss of 240,000 for  the previous year under the  former government which pursued strategies similar to pur  Socred government.  In addition, the inflation rate  and interest rates fell substantially, profits recovered and  business investment began to  pick up.  The record is impressive, and  the government was able, to  achieve it while lowering personal income taxes, increasing  social security benefits and  assistance to those in need, and  reducing the deficit by more  than $1.2 billion!  When the Australian government introduced its budget last  summer, it credited much of its  economic success to the accord  reached between the government and the trade union movement. Under that agreement,  the labour movement agreed to  restrain wage demands, in exchange for price controls,  maintenance of social programs  and a strong job creation program.  As in Manitoba, the  Australian government has  shown that co-operative  strategies do work to produce  economic recovery. Our province could learn some valuable  lessons from the Australian example.  If you wish more information  on the Australian budget and  economic strategies, please contact my legislative office.  Our  Town  ROAD SAFETY  AWARENESS  A recent letter received from  the Bus Safety Committee of  School District No. 46 by Our  Town, expressed great concern  for the safe transportation of  students to and from school.  Those concerns will be addressed in this column of Our Town,  as well as concerns about road  safety in general.  School is back in session this  winter and many of our  students will be on our town's  roadways at a time when road  conditions are at their worst.  We live in a small community  where pedestrian traffic  becomes heavy at times. More  and more people are walking  and jogging. Keeping this in  mind, it is important that all  pedestrians wear clothing that  can be seen from a distance. At  night wear an article of reflective clothing or use reflective  tape.  Where there is a sidewalk,  you must walk on it. If there is  no sidewalk, you must walk on  the extreme left hand side of the  roadway, facing traffic.  It is also illegal to hitch-hike.  The Motor Vehicle Act states:  "A person shall not be on a  roadway to solicit a ride from  an occupant of a vehicle." The  roadway* is primarily meant for  cars and is not a safe place for  pedestrians.  At night, a pedestrian is hard  to see and with icy conditions, a  vehicle may not be able to stop  in time. Just recently, a young  boy was struck by a car on a  highway. With a little common  sense, we can prevent this from  happening.  Cyclists,   like   pedestrians,  stand   little   chance   against  vehicles.  The basic rules of cycling are  the same as with vehicles. A  cyclist must be near as possible  to the right side of the roadway.  It is unsafe and illegal to ride  side by side on the road and one  hand must be kept at all times  on the handlebars. It is illegal to  ride with more than one person  per bike. A passenger cannot be  carried on the handlebars or on  the bike's carrier. It is  dangerous and it limits control  of the bike. Reflectors should  be worn by the biker and if  night riding is done, the bike  must be equipped with a  headlamp and a red rear reflector.  Should a cyclist be involved  directly or indirectly in an accident on a highway, he must remain or immediately return to  the scene of the accident.  Assistance must be rendered,  name and address must be given  to those involved in the accident. If the accident involves  damages over $2,500, injury or  death, it must be reported to  police immediately.  Next week: vehicles and road  safety.  Computer course  Buying a computer system is  not necessarily a simple  business. Capilano College is  offering a course which provides you with the information  you need in order to make  useful decisions to meet your  own needs.  Basics of Small Computer  Systems is a course for individuals and those owning  small businesses to help determine computer needs, and then  to select a suitable system, and  to implement it.  This ten session course is based on material developed by the  Federal Business Development  Bank. Topics include  understanding how computer  systems work, giving instructions to the computer, shopping  for hardware and programs,  setting up the system, and  upgrading it.  Two sessions of the course  give hands on experience in  operating small systems.  This course is meant for people needing an introduction to  what can be a complex subject.  It proceeds in a step by step  fashion through the basics  everyone should know before  purchasing and using computer  systems.  The course begins Monday,  January 21 at 7 p.m. at the  Sechelt centre. Please pre-  register as the course requires a  minimum number of students  * to run. For more information  call 885-9310, 12:30 to 7 p.m.,  Monday to Friday.  >��r       COAST NEVVS    :    Photo  Reprints  IW  Any published photo or your             3 *    * " 3  choice from the contact sheets    �� * �� jL " aM 16.

Send your entries to reach the Coast  News, Box 460, Gibsons, this week. Last week's prize is unclaimed  and the subject of the picture has since melted.  Barge hostel  Story continues  In last week's Coast News  our story on the first floating  hostel in North America, "Lao  Tsu and the Laughing Spirit"  was inadvertently cut-off in  mid-stream. We would like to  apologize for this omission.  The story tells of the purchase  and reconstruction of a barge to  be used as a co-operative hostel,  and of its unfortunate sinking in  the Fraser River, its retrieval  and further reconstruction. It  continues:  Some power tools have now  been reconditioned, the generator is being overhauled and the  barge is again floating very well,  but insulation, wiring, sub-  flooring and gyproc work all  have to be redone, damaged  windows and doors must be  replaced and the workshop  must be rebuilt. Two chimneys  must be built, as well as kitchen  counters, living quarters,  sundecks and railings. Phase  four, which won't be completed  for another year, includes a  greenhouse and hot-tub, and a  canning machine for fish.  If the Canada Works grant is  received, there will be some  funds for materials. "But we  need to go after capital," said  Yearsley, adding that a mortgage could be offered. In particular, heavy duty anchors will  be needed if permanent  moorage is obtained.  "We're interested in finding  people who like the idea and  want to go with it," Yearsley  said. "They must be interested  and committed to putting in  time or it won't happen."  Despite the setbacks,.  Yearsley's optimism about the  potential and value of the barge  project remains undaunted, as  does his belief in the power of  working co-operatively with  what he calls 'sweat equity'.  "If people want something  lady  gamblers  Who said the Sunshine Coast  is a man's world?  The Kinette Club of Gibsons  wishes to announce its counterattack -on the Kinsmen Reno  Stag Night. We are holding a  Ladies' Monte Carlo Night!  The evening, for ladies only,  will begin with cocktails at 6:30,  dinner at 7 (a little entertainment will be provided by our  local Kinsmen), door prizes,  and a $500 cash elimination  prize, to be followed by an  evening of blackjack, poker and  games of chance. This event will  be held on February 16, 1985 at  the Gibsons Legion Hall - the  cost? - only $20 per ticket.  The proceeds of our night  will be going toward the much  needed Kinsmen heart monitor/  defibrillator fund, to which the  people of the Sunshine Coast  have contributed so generously  in past fund raising events.

"This barge is already  a monument to getting things  done that everyone said were  impossible."

The development of infant  children at risk here on the Sunshine Coast is at present suffering from a lack of a qualified infant development worker. This  community is in the Ministry of  Human Resources (MHR)  Region No. 14, which also includes North and West Vancouver, Squamish and Powell  River. Our area is the only one  in the region without an infant  development worker.  The need for such a worker is  clear; in the period from  January 1983 to June 1984 there  were 28 at risk babies born on  the Coast, and it is safe to  assume that there are other such  children in the community.  What qualifies an infant at  risk? If the child is premature,  has a teenage mother, low bir-  thweight, a birth defect,  unstable parents, if there was a  difficult pregnancy or delivery,  if the mother has had a recent  long illness, recent heart surgery  (or other serious surgery), if the  child has cerebral palsy, mental  retardation, hearing difficulties,  blindness or is hyperactive, the  infant may be at risk and need  the help of an infant development worker.  The Association for the Mentally Handicapped was originally formed by a group of parents  of children with Downe's Syndrome, but it has expanded over  the years to include parents of  children who may not develop  normally.  The present petition asks  parents of at risk children,  grandparents, professionals  working with children, prospective parents and concerned  citizens to sign and state that the  worker is needed to 1) screen  young children who are at risk  for development, 2) help  parents learn about their child's  development needs, 3) help the  parents learn ways to help the  child's progress and 4) help the  parents meet other parents for  family support. A drop-in session will occur weekly where  parents will be able to meet.  Donna Shugar, from the  Sechelt MHR offices, has been  very active in the drive to obtain  funding for this worker. She explained more about the program in a conversation with the .  Coast News.  "The parents must be willing  to participate. The majority of  parents enjoy the visits from the  worker," she said, "and see it  as a non-threatening support  service._  "It has been found in  research that the relationship  between mother and a child at  risk is off kilter," continued Ms  Shugar, "and it is important to  learn how to handle what might  be a difficult child so that the  problem doesn't get worse."  The worker will teach parents  how to stimulate deaf and blind  children, to help them adapt to  their surroundings and to be  able to communicate with those  around them, as well as giving  valuable support to parents who  may feel pressures unlike those  experienced by parents of normal children.  The cost of the program  would be approximately  $49,000 per annum. This would  pay one full-time, highly  qualified worker, one day of  secretarial work, telephone, office supplies and equipment,  mileage (considerable in this  area as most of the work is in  the home), a toy library and  book library for parents, and  continuing up-dating of the  worker's educational qualifications (about $1,000 per annum).  If you have a child, three  years or younger, who may be  at risk, or know such a child,  please call Janice at 885-2770 or  Donna Shugar at 885-7101 for  information.
