 May the wonder ahd magic of Christmas which lights these children's eyes fill your hearts with love and  peace the whole year through. Christmas Greetings and Best Wishes from the staff of the Coast News.  First in Canada  Sechelts set for self rule  by Fran Burnside  In an historic move destined  . tOM;tn^#^h*:r^^  BandTithei"first self-governingIndian band in all of Canada,  Minister of Indian and Northern. Affairs David Crombie  has appointed members to the  12-man Sechelt Self-  Government Transition Team.  The Transition Team's mandate is to develop ways to accommodate the implementation  of the Sechelt Indian Band Constitution, under which the Band  will then function instead of  under the Indian Act. The team  is not working on 'if the transition from Indian Act legislation  to Band constitution can occur,  but on 'how', and is responsible  for identifying and overcoming  problem areas and making or  recommending any changes  necessary to accommodate the  transition.  The triggering mechanism  which will formally begin the  process of transition is enabling  legislation entitled "The Sechelt  Indian Band Self-Government  Act", a four-page introduction  to the House of Commons by  Crombie in mid-January.  ..This act, which applies only  to the Sechelt Band, provides  that when the minister is  satisfied that "the Band administration has the ability to  plan, implement and monitor  the delivery of the programs  and services available to the  Band; an effective structure and  system of Band administration  services, including financial  planning and monitoring, has  been in operation for at least  two years; the Band, from a  review of its annual audits,  maintains apceptable finahcial  practices; and the Band has exercised properly every power  mat na^ bwr^ it  under trie Indian Act;" and  when both the minister and a  majority of the electors of the  Band have approved the Sechelt  Indian Band Constitution, "the  Governor in Council may by  order declare that the Band  Constitution has the force of  law and the Indian Act ceases to  apply to the Band."  The Sechelt Band is already  meeting and even exceeding all  of these criteria. It is presently  the only band in Canada with  the maximum rights of management and control of lands  allowed under the Indian Act. It  has held these rights since 1974,  and has been controlling all its  own finances since 1967.  David Crombie has declared  himself committed to Sechelt  Indian Band Self-Government,  having recognized that the  Sechelts are ready to move forward and have a workable  model of self-government ready  to implement. No other band  will be affected by the Sechelt  self-government proposal.  Once enabling legislation is  passed and the Sechelt Indian  Band Constitution has been  recognized, the transition team  will identify which sections of  the constitution can come into  effect immediately, and by  Order of Council the minister  will name the date whereby  those elections become the law  of the Band. As the transition  team satisfactorily resolves pro  blem areas, additional Orders in  Council will name dates on  ];whicb^3^btt^��i*^n&.^^ the.  constitution will come" into effect.  Band spokesmen anticipate  that those sections of the band  constitution which will come; into effect immediately 'upon  passage of the Self-Government  Act will include those -which  establish the Band as a jegal entity, define the electoral and administration process for the  chief and council; define the  terms of Band membership;  establish financial procedures  relating to the Band's Own  revenues and capital, set out the  Band's budgetary process.  Members of the Transition  Team are Davie Crombie; John  Tait, Assistant Deputy Minister,  Justice Department; B.J.  Veinot, Assistant Deputy  Minister, Finance, Indian and  Northern Affairs Canada (INAC); Owen A. Anderson,  Director General, B.C., INAC;  Fred Walchli, Senior  Negotiator, Native Claims, INAC; Dave Sparks, Assistant  Negotiator, Native Claims, INAC; Sechelt Indian Band Chief  Stanley E.J. DLxon and Councillors Clarence M. Joe,  Benedict Pierre and Lloyd Jeffries; Band solicitor Graham  Allen and Band financial advisor Gordon J. Anderson.  The team's first meeting has  been set for this Tuesday,  December 18, in Vancouver,  where Band representatives will  meet with Owen Anderson,  Dave Sparks and Fred Walchli  to work out a full team agenda  for further proceedings.

Financial savings likely  SCRD pushes recycling  School's budget their concern  Parents throng meeting  - Despite the weather a throng  of parents from Roberts Creek,  Davis Bay and some from  Sechelt came to the school  board meeting at Elphinstone,  Tuesday to express their concern about pending staff  changes which will cause disruptions in the school in January,  the middle of the school year.  Roberts Creek Parents' Auxiliary brief was presented by  Marian Jolicoeur and Susan  These representing Davis Bay  parents, brought petitions with  over 100 signatures.  During the discussion it  became evident that the changes  had not yet been decided upon  by the board, but were the  recommendation    of   the  Management Committee and  that trustees were not well  enough briefed to deal with the  issue.  Resulting from pressure from  parents the board agreed to seek  a meeting with Mr. Heinrich but  there was no indication as to  how the immediate problem, to  replace the kindergarten teacher  at Cedar Grove who is taking  maternity leave, with a teacher  already working in the district  because there isn't money to  hire a replacement, will be solved.  The large audience witnessed  the election Of school board officers for the coming year. As  voting for both chairman and  vice-chairman ended in a draw,  straws were drawn between  Janice Edmonds and Tim  Frizzel for chairman, Edmonds  being the winner, and between  Don Fairweather and Jamie  Stephen for vice-chairman,  Stephen drawing the long straw.  The education program  delighted everyone, music by  the  Elphinstone  band  Because of the length of the  education program discussion  of budget problems was cut  short and there is still confusion  as to just what options are open  to the board. Next board  meeting will be Tuesday,  December 18, 7 p.m. in the  board office.  One of the, most interesting  items for discussion at the Sunshine Coast Regional District  board meeting, December 13  was a proposal to incorporate  recycling into the present garbage collection system.  The idea, originally introduced by Area D Director Brett  McGillivray, is not only very innovative, but provides an opportunity for the community,  with minimal effort, to help cut  the presently high cost of garbage collection and disposal.  The SCRD spends about  $300,000 every year to dispose  of garbage, much of which  could be collected and recycled,  thereby bringing in funds. The  current proposal calls for the  distribution of containers to  each household; these are not  expensive, and there is a chance  that a corporate sponsor may be  found for this expenditure.  Every fourth week, instead of  collecting regular garbage, the  collectors will pick up only  recyclable articles; i.e. papers,  glass and metal.  These items will be taken to  depots in Sechelt and Gibsons,  already established, where they  will be sold, with the revenue  going to the SCRD. There will  be initial costs, borne by the  SCRD, the garbage collectors  and by the recycling depots, but  it is hoped that satisfactory contracts and arrangements will be  made.  Because the two depots and  the collection and disposal  systems are already in place  there will be virtually no increase in local bureaucracy;  what will be happening is the  facilitation of what is already in  place.  The Recycling Council of  Please turn to page 7  r  Pay early for profit  Paying your taxes ahead of time can be profitable; the  clerk-treasurer of the town of Gibsons, Lorraine Goddard  has released a report which shows the town paid nine per cent  on pre-paid taxes in 1984 and at the council meeting, Tuesday, December 4 it was decided to continue the practice in  1985.  The town must borrow money to cover its operating expenses, at a current rate of 12 per cent. It is therefore very  beneficial to the town for taxes to be paid early in the year  because it then has to borrow less. Since the current interest  earned on a True Savings Account at the Bank of Montreal is  seven and one half per cent it is also beneficial to the early  taxpayers.

Gruntman visits  All CPU Local 1119 members, both past and present, are  invited to a special regular meeting on Tuesday, December 18  at 7:30 p.m. in Gibsons Legion Hall, to honour retired  members and to hear an address by Art Gruntman, newly  elected first vice-president of the B.C. Federation of Labour.  Social hour to follow. Coast News, December 17,1984  Peace on Earth  December 10 is International Human Rights Day and it  is celebrated throughout the world to remind us of the  ideals enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human  Rights.  The Declaration, written in 1948 by John Humphrey, a  Canadian now with McGill University, proclaims among  other things, that all human beings .are born free and equal  in dignity and rights and that no one should be subjected  to arbitrary arrest and detention, torture or slavery.  It also enshrines the rights of all to social and cultural  security, to education, to the opportunity to earn a living,  to rest and leisure. It is a document that has become a  customary law of nations although many of the signatories  have blemished records and in fact, routinely violate these  lofty ideals.  On December 10 in a Vancouver hotel, 300 businessmen  attended a one-day symposium to learn how to attract  Pentagon contracts. For the most part these contracts  would be for the huts and bolts of the world's most efficient military machine; high-tech components, batteries, the myriad little bits ad pieces that make the  missiles fly and the tanks roll.  In this season of goodwill and love might we not look to  more productive forms of investment that will allow us to  grow in security and will lay to rest the spectre of war  which looms so large in these troubled times. To develop  our economy on an armaments base is folly; already the  world spends $600 million a day on arms and what has it  brought us? - Inflation, unemployment, a widening gap  between the rich and the poor, and a generation of  children whose dreams are uneasy, and whose future glows  not with rosy optimism, but with the radiance of nuclear  death.  Let us make our stand for peace in this world at home;  send the war-mongers packing, invest in our own country,  and help thse who need it most. Perhaps we could then  look towards happier times and a peace on earth would  have some meaning.  by Dianne Evans  5 YEARS AGO  In a letter to the editor John Duffie is "puzzled by the  word 'welfare'. It means something evil when it allows a  widow to feed her children, but when it amounts to a  billion dollars and is paid to Chrysler Motors, it's apparently good for all of us."

The tree shattered the roof over a  room wherein 14 year old Howie White and six year old  Donnie were sleeping, covering the youngsters with  debris.  Land has been purchased in Sechelt for a RCMP "headquarters.  30 YEARS AGO  During heavy rains this week the Port Mellon Highway  was almost destroyed.

Eighty year old, crippled  John Craigson crawled more than 80 yards on his hands  and knees to rescue two small grandchildren trapped inside a blazing home. Flames were rapidly engulfing the  house by the time Mr. Craigson reached it but despite the  leaping flames and his condition he was able to drag the  two youngsters to safety. He was severely scorched in  the rescue.  The Sunshine  CO-PUBUSHEHS ADVERTISING  John Burnside M.M. Vaughan-    J.

Gestures of goodwill in the direction of those  whom for one reason or  another one has stepped on the  wrong side of in the past few  weeks.  First: Mrs. Gail Taylor of  Bowen Island and her candidate  for school board, Pat Tinham.  Mrs. Taylor speaks most ably  for herself on the letters to- the  editor page, page three. We did,  -in. ^.;la$tMMw^-k!^��f  ackriowlrfge "1thev errors 5'tl  Mrs. Taylor alludes to anddii  apologize to her for the consternation caused. There is nbthing  left to do, haying expressed  sincere regret, but to wish Mrs.  Taylor, Ms Tinham, and Returning Officer Joan Rigby the  merriest of Christmases  unclouded by editorial error.  Then, to Mr. Douglas Reid  of West Sechelt who wrote to  disagree with a column I wrote a  couple of-weeks ago about the  gaffes being committed within  range of tape recorders by Conservative and Socred politicians.  Apologies, first, Mr. Reid, for  hanging up on you. I am not  usually discourteous but there  are days which are just too hectic for philosophic badinage on  the telephone and you happened  to phone during the worst of  one of them.  As for the subject of your  call: I would say first that an  editorialist or columnist is not  expected to balance his opinions  with criticism of one party to  equal criticism of another. In  news reporting balance is most  assuredly to be sought, but in  Goodwiil to ali  opinion pieces all you have to be  is opinionated. I would suggest,  also Mr. Reid, that the best  comment made about Sven  Robinson was made by the elder  statesman of the Conservative  party Dalton Camp who, on his  regular appearance on the  Gzowski show Tuesday a couple of weeks ago, referred to  Sven as an 'over achiever',  which I take to mean perhaps  just a little too anxious to make  a name for himself and With  which I would concur. That  ,^sj��c^iu^��rr��r-as, his you ,would  fa" 'i^ua&J>^f^lthe disastrous  economic policies being pursued  by the Bennett government I  can only marvel at.  Incidentally, Mr. Reid, do  not imagine that the apology  means there was no truth to  Robinson's allegations. I  understand him to apoligize for  the method, not the matter. In  fact, on the same radio show  referred to above Dalton Camp,  confidante to three Conservative prime ministers, casually  mentioned that there was CIA  activity in Canada 20 years ago  during the debate on the  Bomarc nuclear arms delivery  system which John Diefenbaker  did not want in Canada. That's  Dalton Camp, Mr. Reid, saying  that the CIA was working  undercover 20 years ago to influence Canadian politics.  When the whole story is written  I wonder if it will be you or  Sven Robinson who looks the  more naive.  Be all that as it may, 1 do  apologize for any discourtesy  and wish you and yours the  happiest of holiday season.  Superintendent John Denley  phoned to point out that the  Deputy Minister of Education  makes $66,000 per annum plus  15 per cent in deferred earnings  which is not $20,000 less than  Denley makes as I said last  week. I am content to observe  that the head of the provincial  system is paid on a par with the  superintendent of a small school  district and I believe that that is  out of line.  I have no personal quarrel  with the superintendent of our .  schools, though I am sure that  sometimes he must so. rj^cejy^,  iti I believe that this entire continent is suffering from  manageritis, top heavy with  high salaried employees. The  best example locally is the  superintendent of schools  because he is our highest paid  public servant - but there is  nothing personal in the matter  and I wish Mr. Denley and his  family the most cordial of  Christmases and the rest of the  school board staff as well.  This does not prevent me  from pointing to the anomaly  that in the school board budget  under educational administration only Denley and Nicholson  and their staffs are computed.  In  every  other  consideration  school principals are referred to;  as administrators and my comments about school administration costs include principals and  their administrative helpers. t;  believe, as Christ said, by their-  deeds so shall you know them.  If someones does  not  make'  his/her living in the classroom  teaching he or she is not a  teacher. If the school budget'  listed   administrators   as   ad-'  ministrators it would give us all'  - including school board staff-a  truer picture. It might add as  much as half a million dollars to  the listed costs of administration.  And so to all a Merry-  Christmas. My Christmas wish;  is that in this age of computers'  we should all better learn to'  utilize the thinking equipment;  that we were born with. If you :  have not challenged one of your  own favourite positions intellec-!  tually in 1984, try it in 1985. A  little up-to-date programming is ]  recommended for the computer <  you came equipped with.  May the message of the"  Prince of Peace get more than;  lip service this Christmastime. '  The world hath need of it.

W.S. Merwin  Parents must support trustees  by Maryanne West  Why the school board lost its  collective wits last week when  confronted with questions from  the public for which answers  were available and left itself  looking inept and foolish, I do  not know.  I can testify to it being not an  unusual phenomenon for individuals to go completely  blank, but Tuesday night the  darkness seemed to envelop the  wholttgroup.  School trustees and administration have been coping  with fiscal restraint and inadequate funding for almost three  years. Extra meetings have  become routine even during the  summer and have been open to  the public - the information has  been available. The reason the  impact hasn't been felt in  dramatic terms in the classroom  until this time is because of the  board's determination that  everything possible would be  cut first; and that this was a  district which offered its  students a wide choice of  enrichment programs over and  above the basics.  If you think back there used  to be money for inter-school  games, for class excursions, for  swimming   lessons,   even   for  retreats for trustees, etc. There  was the widely acclaimed Native  Environmental  Studies course  at Tsoh-Nye which has gone.  We used to have large inventories, of educational supplies  because it is cheaper to buy in  bulk, these no longer exist. This  district'used to have an excellent  maintenance   policy   for   the  upkeep of its buildings, grounds  and equipment, believing that  keeping   everything   in   good  repair was good fiscal management in the long run. School  upkeep, including janitorial service has been cut back to the  point   where  sooner  or  later  restraint will catch up with us.  In 1983 the board submitted a  "needs" budget to Victoria, including in it monies that  Secretary Mills felt we were entitled to and which were* under  review. It wasn't given the time  of day. Courtenay Burns' plan,  if Victoria will agree might  allow enough funds to put off  the crunch until September, but  Vancouver's idea of running a  deficit only means that next  year will just be twice as bad. If  Victoria allows the board to  borrow money, it's borrowed  against next year's budget and  has to be paid back then.  It's fairly obvious that in the  eyes of politicians and  bureaucrats, school boards are  there to do as they're told, implement government policy and  most importantly to fend off  flak from the community. As  long as we confine ourselves to  periodic delegations (depending  upon whose toes are currently  feeling the pinch) to give the  school board hell, we play  directly into Victoria's hands  and the status quo will remain.  What needs to happen in this  district - as in every other - is for  the community to get behind the  school board to fight Victoria.  The board has repeatedly asked  for support from the community, as well as asking to meet the  current minister. If the minister  agrees to meet our trustees this  time, it's up to us to see that  they have the necessary support.  Not just   for  Roberts Creek,  we'll have to give up our  parochial attitudes and like the  school trustees, we'll only have  any credibility if we go to bat  for the children of the district as  a whole.  We would be wise to do our  homework, to take Trustee  Stephen's advice and decide collectively just what our "needs"  are (as distinct from what we'd  like), so that we can make a  solid, responsible case for our  district, supported by letters,  thousands of names on petitions, by other local government bodies and community  organizations.  We are  fortunate,  all our  schools have a core of devoted,  concerned   parents   already ,  organized, who should perhaps  meet with the board to make,:  sure they understand the current  position and then make plans to ���  support   the  trustees.   They'll  need all the support we can give  them. Oh, and if they resign, as  they   have   considered   doing  when things got  tough,  that  wouldn't help; Victoria would  just appoint someone else to im- *  plement their policy. I. 1   III        I  Agent says Mev��� piece  '  J X  ^Editor:  I Re: , Editdrial Comment,  ^November 26, 1984, "Election  [Oddity".  \ It was with shock and anger  'that I read your editorial com-  fment in the November 26 edition of your paper regarding the  ;recent election for school  ^trustee. Not being a resident of  ���the Sunshine Coast, or a  subscriber to your paper, 1 was  unaware of your comments un-  Itil a copy was sent to me this  Iweek by a concerned Sunshine  ICdast resident. That person has  Jmy gratitude; you have my dis-  Jdain and rebuke.  ��� I have been a resident of  {Bowen Island for 21 years and  {have three children currently in  jour public school system. I have  'been actively involved in school  district matters through the  Bowen Island elementary  school, the Bowen Island Community school association and  She Sunshine Coast School  IBoard since 1972, and am  (presently involved with the  |West Vancouver secondary high  "school parent group and the  ;West Vancouver parent association. As a point of clarification  for you and your readers,  although Bowen Island is part  Of the Sunshine Coast School  District, Our high school  Students are educated in the  West Vancouver School  District. As a parent, I am actively involved in both districts.  Bowen Island takes part in the  election of trustees to the Sunshine Coast School Board, but  we are unable to take part in the  elective process for trustees in  West Vancouver as we are not  officially a part of that district.  There is no opportunity for our  community to be involved in the  setting of educational policies  for our students beyond grades  6/7.  For the past 10 years, I have  been active in our community  affairs and have served as a successful candidate to both the  Islands Trust and the Bowen  Island advisory planning commission, and I have also served  as a scrutineer and an agent for  other candidates, and as a poll  clerk for the GVRDfreturning  officer. Because of njy involvement in both educational and  community affairs, and my personal support for Patricia  Tinham in her candidacy for  school trustee, I became an ac- ���  tive participant in this past election as Mrs. Tinham's agent.  I deeply resent and flatly reject the insinuations and slurs  contained in your November 26  editorial. I am not disputing  your 'opinion' and your right to  hold any opinion you choose, I  am disputing the "facts" as you  presented them in your 'comment'. As there were only five,  people present during the recount at the board office if appears your sources of information were very limited as you  received no information from  the returning officer, from  Patricia Tinham, Bowen Island  Candidate, nor from myself,  Mrs. Tinham's agent. Your  source of information was not  only very limited but very biased and skewed. I find your summary of the election results and  recount to be confusing, jumbled and basically incoherent. I  know Mrs. Tinham and I certainly never intended this election to degenerate into an exercise in dark insinuations,  therefore, I wish to recount the  steps in this process in an attempt to set the record straight.  At the local recount held in  the Sunshine Coast Board office  on November 20, there, were  five persons present: Mrs. J.

Taylor, agent. All present  agreed before the ballot boxes  were opened on the basis for accepting and objecting to ballots.  It was clearly established and  agreed to by the returning officer, the two candidates and  both agents that all ballots  marked with an X as required  by the municipal act must be accepted. It was also agreed by ali  present that any ballots not so  clearly marked as in the  municipal act would be questioned and placed separately on  the table.  The ballot boxes were opened  and the returning officer held  up each ballot for the candidates and agents to see. The  candidates and their agents then  had the opportunity to accept or  question a ballot. Once all seven  ballot boxes were opened, the  accepted ballots were tallied for  each candidate, the tally was  662 votes for Mrs. Bulmer and  662 votes for Mrs. Tinham. The  questioned ballots remained in a  pile in the centre of the table. It  was then agreed by all that any  ballots marked with an X now  on the table that had been questioned by either candidate  would be accepted if the intent  of the ballot was clear to all. It  was' also agreed that ballots  marked with a tick would be rejected (as the municipal act requires an X). The returning officer rejected an erased ballot,  and both candidates and agents  agreed that the erased ballot  was to be rejected. The ballots  remaining on the table were  counted. The results were - 48  total ballots. Of the 24 ballots  for Mrs. Tinham that had been  objected to by Mrs. Bulmer, 20  ballots were accepted and added  to Mrs. Tinham's count - now  682; of the 24 ballots for Mrs.  Bulmer that had been objected  to by Mrs. Tinham, 20 ballots  were accepted and added to her  total - now 682.  The ballots rejected were four  ticked ballots for Mrs. Tinham,  three ticked ballots plus one  erased ballot for Mrs. Bulmer.  Once again we had a tie - equal  number of votes for each candidate.  The municipal act requires  the returning officer in the  "event that there is an equal  number of votes for each candidate, to declare the election  for one candidate". Mrs. Rigby  declared the election to Mrs.  Tinham.  The most disturbing aspect of  your editorial is your insinuation that the Social Credit Party  and in particular John  Reynolds, MLA, influenced the  outcome of the recount through  Mrs. Tinham's agent. Your  statement is a total fabrication  and in my opinion is dangerously misleading and clearly meant  to reflect on Mrs. Tinham.  I have received legal advice  that your editorial comments  are actionable through the  courts. I do not intend at this  time to pursue this avenue,  revenge is not my motive. Now  that you have the benefit of  Mrs.  Tinham's,  Mrs.   Rigby's  and my comments, I expect you  tOJproceed in a fair and unbiased manner. At the very least I  demand a printed apology to  myself, to Mrs. Tinham and  Mrs. Rigby. Perhaps your next  editorial should deal with the  issue of getting your facts  before going to press.  . ,;;��� My greatest regret is your approach to this issue is your unfair treatment of Mrs. Tinham  and by extension of Bowen  Island. Our ties to the Sunshine  Coast were never natural nor  easy. This episode will do  nothing to improve our relationship. After 12 years of involvement in educational matters with the Sunshine Coast  School Board 1 have never been  more discouraged or felt more  alienated and isolated than I do  at the present time. With budget  restraint affecting our district  and with education in B.C.  under tremendous stress and  strain, this is the least appropriate time to turn on  ourselves and destroy whatever  semblance of co-operation we  were operating under.

LEGION ELECTIONS  Fortunately the Roberts  Creek Legion was able to field a  full slate of officers for its annual elections last Wednesday  although all the positions were  filled by acclamation as there  certainly weren't any extra people to contest the positions.  Returning for his fourth term  as president is Tommy Des  Lauriers. John Bottomley is  first vice-president and Phil  Sheridan is second vice-  president. Dave Richardson, is  moving to treasurer's position  and Pat Parker will take on the  job of secretary.  Executive officers are Chuck  Barnes, Marlene Longman,  Don Van Kleek, and Sharon  Kraus. Accepting appointments  were Jim Whittles as Padre and  service officer and Bill Richardson as membership chairman.  The new officers will assume  their duties January 1 and will  be installed at the general  meeting January 9.

In West Vancouver, for example, there is an 85 - 90 per cent  participation, although the  SCRD proposal is far simpler  and less costly. Although  suspended for 1984, there is also  a yearly provincial government  diversion grant of $10,000  which has been available for  those communities which divert  a certain amount of garbage on  a regular basis.  One of the people interested  in this proposal is Bob Bowles,  owner of the Sechelt Bottle  Depot. He has been working in  the field of recycling for several  years, and sees the process as  the logical way "for garbage  disposal to go in the future. As  land fills become scarce, and  there is a growing concern  about environmental issues,  recycling gives communities an  opportunity to save space and  make garbage pay.  "It's a way to keep money  circulating in the community;  instead of letting your bottles  for example, sit and gather  dust, or end up at the dump,  recycle and you have a dollar in  your pocket. This week," he  said, "a lot of people have  brought in recyclables and gone  off tp the stores to spend the  money on stocking stuffers. In a  broader sense," he went on,  "the community can turn garbage into dollars to spend on  other projects."

For your safety and that of other  motorists, these signs are  authorized by law.  Durihgthe next few weeks, random  checks will be. carried out by the  RCMP in probiem driving areas,  more particularly the Hope-  Princeton, the Squamish Highway to  Whistler, the Fraser Canyon, but  including other sections of road on  Vancouver Island and the rest of the  province subject to snow conditions.  The operation will be in conjunction  with the Attorney General's  "CounterAttack" programme and  other police traffic checks. Drivers  of vehicles not properly equipped  may be turned back or charged.  The Ministry of Transportation and  Highways is doing its best to clear  snow and maintain our roads in  winter to make them safe. Before  driving into snow areas, make sure  you have good winter tires and  are carrying chains to make your  vehicle safe.  Be on the lookout for snow clearing  and sanding equipment sometimes  operating in conditions of limited  visibility.

They have researched  each lot in the municipality,  corrected the old maps, programmed all the information,  and completed the first new  map.  "What we've done," said  Fred Mason, "is bring  everything up to date so that if a  new subdivison is made in 1987,  it can easily be added onto the  existing map, without any problems. This map can be  duplicated at any time, if  necessary, with the information  we've left."  "It was very interesting,"  said John Reynolds. "The Bluff  was subdivided in 1910, and it's  been quite a task to go back and  get the information."  Gibsons Planner Rob Buchan  is delighted. "It's a project I  haven't had time to  undertake," he said, "and to  have two volunteers with the  skills to do it is very gratifiying.  "What it shows too, is that  people in the community have  skills they may not be using  ��� now. There are other projects  where these skills could be  utilized; it's real community  participation."  Another exciting innovation  in the Gibsons planning department is the acceptance of grade  12 student, Bruce Hogan, onto  the planning staff as part of a  work experience course designed by Phil Murray, Elphinstone  drafting teacher.  "Bruce is a very talented  young man," said Mr. Murray  in a conversation with the Coast  News. "He's very serious about  what he's doing, but like so  many students these days he's a  bit apprehensive about the  future. This is a good opportunity for him to get out there  and get things going, get a letter  of reference that will help him  get into architecture school.  And he couldn't be working  with better people."  Part of Bruce's grade 12  course has been the designing of  a home, complying with all the  current local building by-laws  and zoning requirements, so, as  Mr. Murray pointed out; he is  very familiar with Gibsons  regulations and this will stand  him in good stead on his assignment "at the plahnmjg1bffie�� He  will be undertaking the duplication of the new zoning map  prepared by John Reynolds and  Fred Mason.  Parkway  alters  plans  Gibsons Planner Rob Buchan  has completed an updating of  the overall conceptual plan for  an area bounded by Stewart  Road, Charman Greek, Shaw  Road and the Gibsons elementary school. He presented his  master plan to the December 12  Planning Committee meeting.  The plan has been minimally  changed to include the findings  of a recent report by Dayton  and Knight on the Charman  Creek Valley, in which a new  "parkway", south of the creek  with future access to the Gospel  Rock area was recommended.  The present Mitten Realty  subdivision, south of the  elementary school has within it  a road which will eventually  provide another link between  the upper and lower areas of the  town, via the extension of  O'Shea Road, according to  Planner Buchan's report.  The council has accepted this  conceptual plan which will serve  as a guide to future development in ihe area.

At the moment Hackett Park  is the site of distribution, and it  is very inconvenient when it is  cold and wet. This situation has  been a problem since May when  they were obliged to leave their  previous location; the two  freezers owned by the Food  Bank are presently located in a  volunteer's basement.  "We are feeding 90 families a  month," said Mrs. Lwowski,  "from single people to our  largest family of eight. There's  been a big increase in single  mothers with young children,  and also of younger people.  Everyone must show evidence  of need, but some of those who  are not eligible are still certainly  needy.  "Young people, who in happier times may have gone home  to live with their parents can't  do so, because their parents are  in the same boat," said Mrs.  Lwoski.  ; What the Food Bank needs is  a small secure space, perhaps 12  feet by 24 feet in which to store  the freezers and food, and  which could serve as a distribution point. There is no money  with which to pay rent, so the  organization is looking for  some kind person with space to  Channel  spare and the means by which  to donate it.

TWILIGHT THEATRE  Phone 886-2827  ���For your Entertainment���  Mori:, Tues., Wed.  Dec. 17,18, 19  LORNE JONES  Undercover review  by Betty and Perry KeSler  It's not too many years ago  that your friends could tell you  were really "on your uppers" if  they caught you (kinking Canadian wine. Noboby^ but  nobody, ever drank the Canadian stuff if they could afford  anything else. But times have  changed. Canadian wines are  winning prizes at hornet and  abroad, and it's now considered  quite sociaUyiji to serve them at  the most elegant banquet. John  "'Schreiner, the author *M3��._T1ie  World of Canadian Wine says"  the change/ began when this  country's grape growers started  to plant premium grape  varieties and the wineries  developed the technical competence necessary for good wine  making. But it wasn't until the  Canadian consumers' wine  preferences became more  sophisticated that they began to  seek out the new dry table wines  that the wineries had learned  how to produce and the change  was complete.  Most of Schreiner's book is  devoted to short histories of this  country's wineries and to a  description of their products,  but he also includes chapters on  the great champagne label war,  Canadian prohibition laws, and  the history of viticulture in  Canada. But the handiest part  of the book for the would-be  host or hostess with a restricted  budget and no time to run  around sampling a couple of  dozen wines in order to find one  good one is the wine guide at the  back of the book. In  alphabetical   order,   Schreiner  gives a run-down on every wine  produced in Canada today. Of  course, you won't find them ali  in your local store, but if it's in  the store you'll find it listed in  the book. This is a tightly written book with few wasted  words, not the kind you'll take  to bed on a rainy night, but a  reliable companion in the kitchen.  If you like your drinks  somewhat sweeter and you're  willing to expend a little time  and energy to get them, then  you'll find Carmen Patrick's  Making Dquteurs at Home a  good investment. First issued in  1982 and now reprinted, it's a  handy little book that takes the  guesswork out of making 42  different liqueurs and even tells  you how to serve them with  style.  Naturally, with all this drinking, you're going to want a little  something to eat, and we've  found some dandy recipes for  appetizers in  James Barber's  newest collection, Mushrooms  Are Marvellous. The jolly man  you've seen perched on top of  the mushroom in the TV ads  has  included  such  delightful  finger food as mushrooms ar-  rabiata, poor man's escargots  and marinated mushrooms, all  great eating when you have a  glass in hand. There are no  complicated or terribly demanding recipes in this book, and  Barber's breezy style and excellent illustrations will make  you look at the mushrooms in  the produce shop with a new  glint in your eye.  The   World   of   Canadian  At the Twilight  The film 2010 is the brainchild of Arthur C. Clarke, one  of the best known and most admired authors of science fiction  novels and short stories, as well  as science fact literature. He  weds his first hand knowledge  with a fertile imagination to  create stories that bristle on the  edge of reality.  Clarke conceived of the com-X(^  munications satellite in 1945, an'M  idea that the world has since  become dependent upon for  much of its television and  telephonic communication. The  author of more than 50 books,  some 20 million copies of which  have been printed in over 30  languages, Clarke is also a past  chairman of the British Interplanetary Society, a member  of the Academy of Astronautics, the Royal Astronomical Society, and many  other scientific organizations.  In 2010 he picks up where he  left off with 2001 A Space  Odyssey, a much acclaimed  1968 film.  The year is 2010. Among the  moons of Jupiter, an enigmatic  black monolith orbits in silence,  its age, origin, composition and  purpose unkown. All that is  known is that it exists���and it  has claimed astronaut David  Bowman, the commander of  the American spacecraft  Discovery, for itself. For nine  years, it has confounded our  science and religion.  Now, a team of Soviet and  American scientists have united  aboard the Russian spacecraft  Leonov on an expedition to investigate this hautning interloper. Before their epic  journey to Jupiter is over, they  will witness a cosmic miracle,  one which will transform their  perception of man and his  destiny in the universe.

The two days were an excellent start to what will indubitably be a very Merry  Christmas.  You may ask, why two days?  Therein lies the answer to why  we are working towards a new  and larger hall. We were 70  guests at the Wednesday dinner  and 101 on Thursday. We could  not possibly have accommodated that total in one sit- X  ting.        ,.-,���;>  There were two outstanding  happenings during the second  day which I must mention. The  first was the outstanding rendition by Patty Miller of "If I  Loved You" and the other was  the return of our beloved Connie Wilson to accompany the  Sixty-Niners.  I want to close by apologizing  for my errors of omission and  to wish all my" readers and all  seniors a very Merry Christmas  and a most Happy New Year.

It's something nice to look  forward <o in the spring-time. -!>��,,.**��..* ph���n,  Gibsons deals  With full agenda  very detailed and extensive,  several options are offered for  the construction of the seawalk  proposed along the Gibsons  waterfront. Planning committee  chairman Alderman Ron  Neilson, who was unable to attend the meeting, did forward  his suggestions as to the standard of construction to be  followed.  Alderman Neilson's suggestion is for crushed limestone  with timber edging (railway  . ties), with electric conduits  buried for future street lighting,  lt will be known in the next  week or so if a Canada Works  grant has been obtained for the  work, and the amount of the  grant will determine how much  of the seawalk can be completed  at this time.  The report also indicated that  large rip-rap is no longer required as protection for the  foreshore interceptor since the  building of the breakwater, and  offers several suggestions for  improvement. Work will begin  on this and other downtown  revitalization projects early in  the new year.  The council was unfortunately unable to grant a home occupation/business licence to L.  Sweder and Jacquelin Brown  * who had wanted to retail their  homemade clothing from their  home which is on the old  '"'' Westhorrie Garage site: Because"  the landlord has had the property rezoned to commercial/hotel  it is impossible for the town to  grant such a licence although  the council was very sympathetic to Mr. Sweder's plea.  The projected business is just  the kind of undertaking suitable  to the downtown area near the  marina, and the zoning is the  only obstacle. However, it was  pointed out to Mr. Sweder that  it would be possible for he and  Ms Brown to manufacture the  clothing at their residence and  then to retail it from a  neighbour's property or some  other suitable outlet.  There were several items of  interest on the agenda at the  December 12 Gibsons Planning  Committee meeting, including a  [review of the Centennial  '86  ��� project,   a   proposed   list   of  i federal projects for the coming  ! five   years,   the   Dayton   and  I Knight    foreshore   interceptor  i protection report, and an ap-  | plication for a home occupa-  | tion/business licence.  J    Gibsons Planner Rob Buchan  ; calls the design for the Centen-  ' nial '86 complex proposed for  !��� the area adjacent to the Gibsons  I pool and winter club "pleasing"  < although   he   expressed   some  s concerns   about   traffic   flow.  ? There are two exits, one onto  ��the highway and one possible  I exit onto Davis Road.  ]    "This   is  worrisome,"   said  ( Planner Buchan. "the area has  | been subdivided and it is un-  i suitable to have heavy traffic  } flow through such an area. It  ; should   be   closed   to   such  | traffic." Planner Buchan went  j on to suggest that a possible exit  I onto Mahan  Road would be  l more suitable but would have to  '> be approved by the department  \ of highways.  ; In response to a letter receiv-  { ed from Ray Skelly, MP, dated  j November 6, Planner Buchan  ! has suggested several projects  ; which would be eligible for  ' federal, aid, and ^yhich: vyill be  ' forwarded "To* the "MP. These  ��� projects include upgrading the  |Gibsons/Sechelt airport; a  ��breakwate- at Armour's Beach;  | the upgrading of the sewer  v treatment plant, the storm  Jdrainage system, retention  j: ponds, etc., the water system ���  ?and reservoirs; the stationing of  , a 'rescue vessel' in Gibsons; and  ! various park developments including a campground for  ; recreational vehicles at the  ?south end of Brothers Park.  The foreshore interceptor  : protection report prepared by  ; Dayton and Knight has been  .received by the planning com-  ?mittee.

The  course runs five days a week  Ifrom January 7 to April 26.  ? This office technology program offers all the skills  jnecessary for work in today's  jmodern office. Special emphasis is placed on developing  proficiency in the use of elec-  ���tronic equipment. The student  jwill work with sophisticated  ���word processing, data process-  ting and multi-plan spreadsheet  ���software.  In today's demanding job  market, employees must have a  wide range of skills. The College will teach you bookkeeping, payroll, and record keeping  skills to prepare you for this  market.  Registration for the office  technology program is limited,  and only a few seats are  available. A meeting is being  held at the Sechelt campus in  December to discuss information about the course.

Phone 886-2120  #1  s is bus  Gibsons Food Bank coordinator Kasandra Harfield  appreciates citizen support for  her organization, but she finds  it uncomfortable to ask for contributions. "We need them,"  she admits; "but the provincial  government should be fulfilling  this need."  She claims jobs and adequate  benefits are the real'need. Her  information shows one in six  persons on the Sunshine Coast  is reliant on human recources in  some form or other.  The Unemployment Action  Centre (UAC) provides space  for the Gibsons Food Bank.  Priscilla Brown, coordinator of  the UAC says, "people are  generous,, but 1 want them to  ask themselves, why so many  are dependent on the stop-gap  measure of the Food Bank?"  In addition to running the  Food Bank, Harfield is actively  involved with groups attempting to pressure the provincial  government to end the necessity  for emergency food.  She gratefully acknowledges  the contributions of people who  keep the Food Bank operating;  clerks at Super Valu, the  Hospital Employees' Union,  ��� ��� ���  Elves near  Hamper  CUPE, the ferry workers,  .Henry's Bakery and Variety  Foods.  Other groups like the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce employees are contributing to the Food Bank  rather than exchanging gifts  among themselves. The  Thanksgiving hamper donated  by the Gibsons elementary  students shows the depth of  thoughtfulness in the community.  "This generosity," Harfield  says, "bring homes the contradiction between community  giving and the provincial  government's tight-fisted indifference."  Harfield invites food donations at the UAC above the old  firehall. Cash contributions can  be sent to Community Services,  Box 1065, Sechelt.

I was in the midst of asking  you to balance your editorial  column "Musings" with an article about the ineptitude of the  NDP last week involving the  Sven Robinson foot-inrmouth  faux pas. I noted, before you  smashed the phone down, that  your "Musings" column of  December 3 was disgracefully  anti-Conservative and Socred  and should be followed by a  balancing editorial piece equally  putting down the NDP and  poor Sven Robinson.  Poor Sven! Yes, he has delusions of grandeur and the ac-  compaying paranoia. He sees  CIA spies in every corner and  Student's wish  Editor:  After reading ��� "Musings",  December 10, I feel obliged to  send you a copy of Meegan's  letter to Santa. She is one of  those grade one.students who  may be among the "casualties"  in Bennett's "New Reality" if  the school budget cuts go  through as planned.  She sat down to write her letter to Santa last week. When she  asked me how to spell  "because'? and then "government", I began to wonder what  kind of Santa letter this was.  You can see by the enclosed  copy of her letter what this  Roberts Creek grade one student wants for Christmas. I  hope she is not too disappointed.

It is usually caused when the root surface of a tooth  is exposed by the wearing away of gum tissue due to the  use of a hard toothbrush. The soft root of a tooth is not  covered by hard enamel which acts as an insulator to the  nerve of the tooth.  There are several agents available at pharmacies which  can be very helpful in alleviating sensitivity:  1. Concentrated fluoride rinses (NOT mouthwashes) either  used daily or weekly depending on the concentration���this  acts to build up the root surfaces.  2. "ORAMIN" a remineralizing solution also builds up the  roof surface.  3. "GELSTAN" a paste used on a-toothbrush (has a  fluoride base).  4. At lease two brands of toothpaste are available for dealing with sensitivity���they are of limited value as the success is so varied from one person to another;  All of the above should be used without toothpaste which  is abrasive and wears'away the newly built up layer of tooth  surface. Use water or mouthwash for brushing.  Please note: The Medical Clinic Complex will  be closed Christmas, Boxing and New Year's  Day.

Poor Sven. What incredible  ineptitutde! Imagine his being a  MP for as long as he has and  now knowing the rules of the  game concerning justice and  parliamentary immunity. Since  he apologized, and so did his  boss, Broadbent, I, for one,  hope the two groups he "named" in parliamentary committee  find a way to nail him for his inexcusable behaviour.    J  The accident prone Robinson  is a detriment to the NDP, the  party that, god forbid,  represents us locally in Ottawa  and Victoria.  And as for you, John Burnside, why. couldn't you have  courteously listened to what I  had to say, above, during our  phone conversation.  I feel much safer���and so do  the vast majority of Canadians���with people like  Mulroney, Michael Wilson, Joe  Clark and the Victoria Socreds  running things in these tough  times than I am with people like  you (in journalism) and Robinson (in politics) making your  dubious contributions to the  commonwealth.

Had we stayed  much longer it is doubtful that  any of the original crew would  still have been with us. As it was  we left several behind due, in  large measure I think, to the effects that the steady consumption of "pisco" had had on  their mental and physical  health.  To cite as examples, the  Donkeyman had gone berserk  and had thrown one of the  oilers down the companionway  leading to the engine-room and,  in so doing, had broken one of  his legs. TTie crew, for some  unknown reasons, had ganged  up on my 2nd Cook and given  him such a savage beating in  one of the waterfront cantinas  and, in view of the fact that he  had only one eye to commence  with (the other being sightless as  the result of a hockey accident'  in his youth), he was temporarily blind and unable-to work.  Shortly after this, two of the'  A.B.'s (Able Bodied Seamen)  whp normally were the best of  friends, got into a violent argument back iri the crew's quarters  and it ended up by one of them  stabbling the other in the chest  with his sheath knife. He was  still in hospital, as was the unfortunate oiler with the broken  leg, when we sailed,  The final straw came later  when Dick, the Chief Steward  who had been my companion  on the trip to Santiago, fell  madly in love with a prostitute  he had met there and, changing  from an irrepressible, happy-  go-lucky   individual   without  seemingly a care in the world,  grew so despondent that he tried  to commit suicide by jumping  overboard. Whether all these  unrelated  incidents  could  be  blamed entirely on the "pisco"  % debatable, but there is no  doubt in my mind that it contributed to the increasingly odd  behaviour exhibited by my shipmates   and   I   shared   the  Captain's relief that we were  once more at. sea and, although  short-handed, were soon back  to the old routine.  V We arrived at the-> port of  Iquique in a few days and I  could not help remarking at the  bleakness and air of desolation  that  seemed  to  pervade  the  place, although the dock area  was seething with activity wjtn  ships flying the flags of many  nations   either   loading   or  awaiting their turn to load the  one cargo for which Iquique is  famous. It was and has been for  years one of the few places in  the world that has inexhaustible  deposits of potassium nitrate or  Chilean   nitrate   as   it   is  sometimes called.. This commodity has always been in great  demand, both for its properties ;  as a fertilizer and as an essential  component in the making of  high explosives. This caused me  to wonder why we, a Canadian  sfop, were loading 10,000 tons  of the stuff for delivery to  Egypt, which at the time was at  loggerheads with both Britain  arid France over the Suez Canal.  X. I never solved that question  but I soon found out why the  port of Iquique appeared so  drab and lifeless. It had never  rained there in living memory  and consequently there was no  water supply. It all had to be  transported   there   from   the  island oasis of Pica and in addition, due to the lack of rainfall  and the absence of any suitable  soil that would produce growth,  the  cultivation  of any  such  things as grass or flowers was  only possible by the importation  of earth from other parts of the  mainland or from the islands  off shore. I could never understand why anyone would want  to live in such an arid spot; it  would have driven me up the  wall in no time, but when we  were there the town had a  population of around 30,000.  Who knows, perhaps they had  ah unlimited supply of pisco to  keep them happy or, it could  have been that most of: them  knew nothing of conditions in  other parts of the world and so  were contented with their lot.  One thing I do know is that I  was gla4 when we left there.  Unlike the unloading in San  Antonio which had dragged on  interminably, our full cargo of  nitrate was loaded in just over a  week and once more we were on  our way.  Through the Panama Canal,  a brief night's fling ashore in  Colon on the Atlantic seaboard  and then on to Curacaco, Dutch  West Indies to take on bunkers  for the long haul to Alexandria,  Egypt. When we arrived at  Willemstad we received a cold  welcome. Two sentries with fixed bayonets were positioned at  the.gangway and there was no  shore leave. We were told that  our sister ship, the S.S. Lake  Winnipeg, had preceded us by a  few days and that her crew had  gone on a' rampage in the town  and almost wrecked it.  I hesitate to make any comment here as I certainly was no  lily-white angel in those days,  but I sometimes wonder if the  ships' owners weren't justified  in transferring their ships over  to foreign registry. Canadians,  both in the armed services and  the merchant marine, on the  whole, were an obstreperous lot  and caused plenty of headaches  and, in the case of the latter, it is  not surprising that their  employers were anxious to be  rid of them.  Dancers9  social  The tilphinstone Scottish  Country Dancing club held its  first annual Christmas social  Friday, December 7.  Guests came from Allison  Steele's Roberts Creek group  and from Ellen Marshal's Gibsons Ladies group.

Approximately 100 people watched  slide presentations and listened  to Cliff Mahlman, fire training  instructor for the Gibsons and  District Volunteer Fire Department, explain preventive  measures which should be taken  in every home. Firefighters also  Jit fires outdoors and gave people the chance to practise using  various fire extinguishers.  Most causes of house fires  fall into five main categories:  the careless use of smoking  materials; the careless use of  combustible and flammable li-  I  quids and substances; the accumulation and storage of combustible rubbish; the improper  use of electricity and electrical  appliances; the improper use of  fixed and portable heating  equipment.  The prevention of the tragedy  of fire can best be accomplished  by eliminating fire hazards, providing an early warning "fire  detection system and working  out a family escape plan so that  everyone knows how to safely  escape from the home should a  fire break out.  Fire hazards were graphically  illustrated in the slide presentations, showing such situations  as styrofoam cups being used as  ashtrays, gas mowers and  equipment being stored indoors, cardboard boxes and  paint cans being stored near furnaces, extension cords being used in place of permanent wiring,  curtains or clothing hung too  The skippers of the Ross Lane Salmon Charter Benefit  would like to thank all those who made this benefit a success.

Smoke detectors.are deemed  "essential" in all homes {they  are required in new homes) as  most home fires occur between  9 p.m. and 6 a.m., when people  are asleep. They should be placed on or near the ceiling close to  every sleeping area, then at the  head of stairs, in the living-  room and the basement.  Fire extinguishers should be  located along escape paths in  main fire hazard areas like the  kitchen, livingrobm, workshop  and near second floor  bedrooms, and should be  checked once a year. They  should be used when the fire is  small and confined, not  spreading; when the user's back  is towards an exit; when the person is familiar with its use;  when the fire department has  been called.  Escape routes should be  devised using a floor plan of the  home, and escapes should be  practised, especially at night.  Every room should have at least  two exits; the second exit is  often a window, and a chair or  stool   should   be   nearby   so  children or older people can  ciimb up to get out. Windows  and screens should slide open  easily, and everyone should  know how to open them.  Test doors before opening  them. If the door is hot or  smoke is coming in around it,  do not open it. If you must go  through smoke, crawl and keep  low, as smoke rises. Breathe  through a cloth if possible,  preferrably wet, and breathe as  little as possible.  Don't dress or do anything  before getting everyone out of  the house and accounted for at  a pre-determined place. And  once out, stay out! Then call the  fire department. Everyone in  the family should practise calling the fire department and giving the necessary information.  Over 400 smoke alarms have  been sold on the Sunshine Coast  in the last month, and members  of local fire departments are  most willing to advise residents  on the best' location in their  home for these devices. Call  your area fire department and  advise that yours is an information call.  Pull the pin, direct the nozzle at the base of the fire, pull the trigger  and remember that you probably have only eight seconds of spray  from a small fire extinguisher. Gibsons firefighters gave valuable  lessons at last week's fire prevention seminar. -inn Bumsid* Ph,.��.

I I V  S  y    Layout and design person for bi-  season  by Ruth Forrester  The Welcome Beach community hall has been a busy little spot these past couple of  weeks as it has been the scene of  many Christmas activities. Last  Saturday was the night'of the  annual Christmas dinner and  was packed to capacity for a  delicious turkey dinner with all  the trimmings. President Bill  Vorley welcomed everyone and  led the carol singing accom-  . panied on piano by Elsie Julian.  Nikki Weber joined in the fun  with her guitar and then provided taped music for dancing into  the small hours. Everyone  agreed that it was a great evening and are enthusiastic about  getting together again for a New  Year bash where Nikki will  again be in charge of music.  If you are planning to attend  at New Year you could give  Fred Greaves a call at 885-3926,  but do it soon as space is fairly  limited and it would be a shame  to be disappointed. Admission  for the New Year's party is $15  per couple and you bring your  own goodies and refreshments.  If you have house guests over  New Year this is a good place to  take them to meet all your  friends.  Sunday  was  the afternoon  where the children of the area  were treated to a Christmas party thanks to the Halfmoon Bay  Recreation Society who sponsored this annual affair. Barbara James was in charge of  organizing this year and was of  course helped by the mums and  by Margaret Connor and Cynthia Wickwire who helped serve  the   beautiful   goodies.   Dave  Karmazyn  delighted  the little  ones with his clown and magic  act as well as his glorious singing  voice.  Once again,   Elsie  Julian played for carol singing.  Then    on    Monday   the  Welcome Beach carpet bowling  group   got   together   for   a  scrumptious jpotluck supper to  celebrate the Christmas season.  We do indeed^wonder what we  would do without the good old  Welcome Beach Hall and all  those who give of their time and  energy doing volunteer work to  keep things in good shape.  OPEN HOUSE  By now most residents will  have become acquainted with  George and Maxine at the Halfmoon Bay store and post office.  It is indeed a pleasure to drop  by at the store nowadays. You  are always sure of a pleasant  greeting,   the   coffee   pot   is  always at the ready and the feeling of warmth of a small country store is there. Maxine and  George are also enjoying getting  to know their neighbours and to  show   their   appreciation   for  your patronage they have invited their friends and patrons  to open house at the store on  Wednesday, December 26 (Boxing Day) from one until four in  the  afternoon;   a   really   nice  gesture which is certainly appreciated by us all.  If you would like to join in  yet another happy evening don't  forget the Halfmoon Bay  school's Christmas party on  December 20. Everyone will be  welcome to join in the fun.

They proved to be good  citizens, working hard for the  good of the village and hospital.  The Parkers moved from-  Rockwood to the white house  that stood for a long time in the  heart of the village where The  Dock mall is now.  Parker's Hardware, now  MacLeods, was built by them  and both Jim and Phyllis worked in the store.  The next move of the Parkers  was to Seaview Lane in West  Sechelt where Phyllis has been  living with her daughter Mary  and Cecil Gordon since her husband passed away a number of  years ago.  The funeral for Phyllis  Parker, who passed away on  Wednesday morning, December  12 was held in St. Hilda's  Church on Friday, December  14. The service was conducted  by Reverend Paetkau and  Reverend Godkin.  Phyllis was a president and  working member for St. Mary's  Hospital Auxiliary, and a life  member of the Eastern Star.  She was also a kind, friendly  person, a pleasure just to go into the store and talk to, or work  with in organizations.  It was just on Saturday,  December 1 that Phyllis performed her last public duty, she  poured tea at the St. Mary's  Hospital Auxiliary, Sechelt  branch. That is how she will be  remembered by her many  friends, graciously presiding at  a tea table.
