 I      LEGISLATIVE LIBRARY  Parliament Buildings  VICTORIA, B.C.  V8V 1X4  MiA  8th Annual Fool's Day Run  "SMhta*      ��  "Hi  \  W*      1  Left to right, third-place finisher Barry Janyk, winner Glen Chilton of Winnipeg; first lady Ricki Ferguson,  and runner-up Steve Miles all had something to smile about despite the rain after the running of the 8th Annual April Fool's Day Run, Gibsons to Sechelt, last Sunday. -John Bums** photo  March went out like the proverbial lion last Sunday but the  cold, gusting wind and. fierce  cold showers did not dampen  the spirits of the 49 participants  in the 8th Annual April Fool's  Day Run.  This year the Coast News  Challenge Cup was won by a  contestant from Winnipeg.  Glen Chilton was visiting family  in Sechelt and led from beginning to end despite a determined  challenge by last year's winner,  Steve Miles of Sechelt.  There was some satisfaction  left for Steve, however, in that  the Winnipeg runner was six  seconds off the record pace that  won the event last year.  ; Most runners are content to  keep their own pace in the April  Fool's Day Run and the cheers  for the last runner in, Elaine  Gant, this year, are just as  sincere and just as heartwarming as the cheers which  greet the winner.  Make no mistake, however,  for the boys up front and one or  two in the pack the competitive  fires burn strongly. Offered a  choice of water or an orange at  the Roberts Creek comfort station, Miles declined either with  a terse: "I want him", and  gestured at the runner just  ahead.  As the runners and friends  waited for the field to come in  at the Sechelt Cenotaph, Irene  Lugsdin told Dr. Stan Lubin:  "It felt good to pass you."  Irene was the winner of the  first Master Lady Award, given  to the first lady finisher over 35.  Irene has'just joined that group.  Ricki Ferguson was first lady  finisher. Barry Janyk of West  Sechelt was the third-place  finisher.  Other finishers of note were  David Mah, aged 12, who  finished strongly for the second  straight year. The oldest runner  was Arne Tveit-Pettersen, 54^  and Lyn Christian was the first  participant over 40 to finish.   ���  Below are the finishers, with  their times of completion:       ^  1.

Due in part to salmon  closures in the Johnson Straits  and the efforts of local wildlife  groups, Sunshine Coast streams  will contain increased wild  salmon stocks next year.  "We now have 28,000 coho  and about 50,000 chum salmon  incubating in Wilson Creek,"  said community advisor Grant  McBain from the department of  fisheries. Of this batch about  500 adult fish from each of the  two species can be expected to  return to their nursery creek  said McBain, pointing out that  the 90 per cent survival rate  from egg to fry due to incubation is much higher than  nature's 10 per cent.  The return of about 5000  salmon to streams like Roberts  Creek (more than twice recent  averages) is probably due to  fishing restrictions in Johnston  Straits, the large migratory  channel where the various  species merge on their  homeward journey to spawn.  Enhancement sites already  established will benefit accordingly, and this year the  Oullette Creek site has 114,000  chum and 22,000 coho in incubation.  Volunteers from various  wildlife groups, including the  Gibsons Wildlife Club, the  Sechelt Rod and Gun Club, and  Pender Harbour Wildlife Society and the Thornborough Channel Enhancement Society, par  ticipate in the process of water  testing, incubation box location, milking, feeding and eventual distribution of the young  fish back into their natural environment.  The clubs get certain allotments from the department of  fisheries and oceans, to cover  the cost of materials, plumbing  incubation boxes, feed and  spawning bed materials.  Government grants will probably remain the same this year  said McBain.  As part of Wednesday's  meeting, club members viewed  an .informational; video j; on,  salmon, ~ hosted by David  Suzuki. The video indicated the  enormous change in salmon  population due to overfishing  and ecological management.  The video showed examples  of clearcut forests creating  silting and cluttering stream  beds, and dams and bridges  preventing salmon migration  upstream.  The quantum leap in the  capacity of modern fishboats to  catch huge quantities of fish,  however, is still the largest  threat to the salmon resources.  Meanwhile, local groups are  continuing to search out new  streams suitable for incubation  programs, acquiring the  knowledge necessary to increase  the potential stream yield.  Volunteers   grapple   with  ongoing problems of finding  suitable water supply, with the  right temperature and flow rate  necessary to maintain appropriate hatching and feeding  schedules.  Along with the natural  growth of the aquaculture industry on the Sunshine coast,  small stream enhancement of  salmon stocks continues due to  the willingness of a few  dedicated volunteers.  Hovercraft  needs  The Open House at the Pender Harbour Golf Course on March 23  was good reason to smile. Darryl Lewis, contractor, John  Willcock, chairman of the Management committee and project  manager, Jack MacFarlane, finance chairman, and Bill Lawrenuk,  president of the Golf Course Society, enjoy the sun on the deck of  the clubhouse. Over 200 people attended the Open House.  ���Juan Wilson photo  Pender open house  Even a power outage could  not dampen enthusiasm at the  Open House of the Pender Harbour Golf Course last week.  Over 200 people, including 35  new members, enjoyed tours of  the course, refreshments in the  clubhouse, and the auction of  the cups and flags.  Winner of the draw was  Wayne Spring, who promptly  donated the $500 prize back to  the club. Orville Larson was the  successful bidder at $500.  John Willcock and his team  made the beautiful tee markers,  which were also auctioned off.  Some of the guests at the  Open House were Mr. and Mrs.  Ian Fraser of the British Columbia Pro Golf Association, and  Les Howard of the British Columbia Golf Association.  Members of the Sunshine  Coast Regional Board also attended.  Work on the course has been  financed by various government  grants. Steve Boyd, supervisor  of the project, reports that the  work is ahead of schedule and  under budget: welcome news in  our economic times.  In an interview with the Coast  News, Seaspeed president Jim  Yates said he is still hopeful that  a hovermarine service from  Gibsons to Vancouver will be  implemented some time this  summer.  "Initially the business isn't  here," said Yates. "It's going  to take months to develop sufficient regular traffic." Seaspeed  anticipates supporting the  business over the initial starting  up period with selected package  tours, charters, Expo specials  and day trips.  "We would like to base a  vessel here in Gibsons," said  Yates. With no big terminals required, low moorage rates and  onboard ticketing, operating  costs can be kept to a minimum.  There will also be a choice of  three different routes to and  from Vancouver; choice will be  dependent on weather conditions.  To start up operation the  company would require in the  neighbourhood of $100,000 to  $150,000 independent of buying  one or all of the three boats and  settling existing company debts,  said Yates.  "We are having conversations with the EDC, as to how  we can be working together,"  said Yates. "We think the service is a practical idea, it fits into the development of the  coast," he added.  Economic Development  Commissioner Oddvin Vedo in  conversation with the Coast  News suggested that the Sunshine Coast realtors should get  together, buy the boats, and run  the service themselves.  "This is what they did in  Hong Kong," said Vedo, pointing out that a group of Hong  Kong developers now operate a  service from that city, using the  same vessels considered for the  Gibsons-Vancouver run.  "The realtors will benefit  most from the service," said  Vedo, who also stressed the fact  that a hovermarine link will  mean the Sunshine Coast will  become a literal extension of  Vancouver.  In reference to Seaspeed's  projected $7 one way rate (with  percentage discount fares for  commuters) Vedo pointed out  .that it costs that much to run a  big car from say Langley or  other outlying communities into  Vancouver.  As Oddvin Vedo says, "These shears are for cutting through government red tape.* From left, Syd Heal of  the Sunshine Coast Aquaculture Association; Richard Tomkies, SCTA; Vic Chambers, Chamber of Commerce; Sechelt mayor Joyce Kolibas; SCRD director Jon McRae and Economic Development Commissioner Oddvin Vedo participate in the ribbon cutting ceremony launching Norb and Yvonne Kraft's floating  salmon farm. Kraft Marifarms will be moving the barge to Hotham Sound in two weeks to begin salmon farming. CBC's "The Journal" was on hand to film the occasion which will be aired sometime in the next three  Weeks. -Ne��iDe Conway photo  At SCRD  Procedure questioned  by Neville Conway  At the Sunshine Coast  Regional District's regular  meeting held last week, two  matters of procedure were questioned by Area A Director Ian  Vaughan and Gibsons Director  John Burnside.  Due to a last minute scheduling of a finance committee of  the whole meeting on Tuesday,  March 26, both directors were  unable to attend a final reading  of the SCRD's 1985 budget.  Director Burnside did not  receive word of the meeting,  and due to other committments  Director Vaughan sent Alternate Bill Lawrenuk to represent  Area A.  Director Vaughan said he  may have to vote against the  budget because he felt that it  had been circulated too late for  directors to peruse the document and question SCRD staff  members on specific budgetary  items.  Director Burnside referring to  the March 31 deadline for  budget submission said, "To  call a meeting five days before  the deadline is pretty late in the  day to make recommendations.  Here it is the 28th of March and  a couple of us are seeing the  budget for the first time".  Chairman Gurney commented "There seems to have  been a lack of interest on the  part of some directors".  Following some discussion  the board agreed to Director  Shaske's suggestion that following the regular meeting the  board break into a finance committee of the whole, and go oyer  budget changes made during  Tuesday's meeting.  The salient changes were  subsequently read to the committee at the end of the evenings  proceedings.  In business arising from the  minutes of the regional board's  March   14   meeting,   Gibsons  Director Burnside pointed out  that there was no record in the  minutes of Area E Director  Gurney's declaration to the effect that he would not be resigning his position as chairman of  the board.  Said Burnside, "Minutes  should reflect what happened,     and this seems to be a fairly  significant ommission."  Secretary treasurer, Larry  Jardine, indicated that there  had been no actual motion tabled in conjunction with the  declaration. No resolution was  passed concerning policy on  matters of this nature.  Sechelt office opens  Effective Thursday, April 4, the Sunshine Coast News will  have an office at The Book Store, 5693 Cowrie Street,  Sechelt; telephone 885-3930.  Numbers assigned  The village, of Sechelt has almost completed the assigning  of street numbers within the municipality, using the Doug  Roy system.  Said Village Administrator, Malcolm Shanks in a conversation with the Coast News, "There were a few minor problems, but nothing that couldn't be easily worked out."  Recycling response  Out of 610 responses from Coast residents asked if they  would support a recycling program, 503 said yes and 107 said  no.  Two hundred and three people preferred a pickup one  week out of four, 193 chose a bi-weekly pickup, 67 wanted  pickup one week in three.  Dog question  raises sparks  In reference to an article on  dog control printed in last  week's Coast News, SCRD  chairman Jim Gurney asked  that Director John Burnside, in  his capacity as editor of the  paper, tender an apology for incorrect information printed in  the article.  The article in question cited  the chairman as having 'found a  dog a home in Sandy Hook,  and sent it out  in a taxi...'.  Gurney, in a two page brief to  the board pointed out that it  was not he in fact who had called the taxi.  "This is just intellectual Tid-  dleywinks," said Burnside indicating that in his capacity as  publisher of the newspaper he is  not responsible for the proofing  of all copy printed.  Burnside agreed, however, to  print Gurney's brief in the next  issue of the Coast News. (See  page 3). Coast News, April 3,1985  r  Jobs aiict money  As our federal government seems on the verge of  deciding to join in President Reagan's 'Star Wars' because  of the jobs it might create, we should strive for some clarity of thinking on the subject of government spending.  There are those among us who believe that governments  should spend their way out of difficulties; there are those  who believe that everything a government spends is of nec-  cessity equally wasteful. Both of these are extreme positions.  We must realize that it is important on what our governments spend their money.  Provincially, there are those who have no complaints as  our provincial government gives hundreds of millions of  dollars to B.C. Rail or millions to bail out an Alberta bank  but shriek that we are being bankrupted if we suggest increasing the welfare rates. Yet any money spent on welfare  circulates in our communities as railway credits and bank  bail-outs most assuredly do not.  Nationally, as one speaker at a seminar sponsored by  Solidarity Coalition pointed out last week, making jobs  through military spending is a very expensive and ultimately inefficient way of creating jobs. For a fraction of the  cost of our military spending we could reforest much of  Canada, restock our oceans with fish, all of which could  renew themselves and provide jobs for generations.  If our prime minister is using job creation as an excuse  for going along with the true insanity of the American  defence machine he is either much less clever than we had  thought or he thinks we are none too swift.  from the file* of the COAST NEWS  5 YEARS AGO  Adrian Belshaw' won the April Fool's Day Run for the  second time in its three year history. All but three of the  31 starters finished the run. Arne Pettersen, Gibsons  Chamber of Commerce president, was winner of the  Golden Oldy ribbon.  Local log salvagers denounced White Paper #8 containing proposed changes in log salvage regulations.  The beachcombers, including a contingent from the  Fraser River area, challenge the legal right of the  ministry of forests to hold meetings and regulate  regulations affecting a business carried out exclusively  at sea or on the foreshore.  The old pool hall on Marine Drive goes under the  wrecking ball.  10 YEARS AGO  A single vehicle accident claims the life of former  Sechelt Indian Band Chief Henry Paul.  The school board is to examine eight possible sites  for the proposed new Sechelt secondary school.  The idea for a Sunshine Coast Cultural Centre is starting to roll.  15 YEARS AGO  Port Mellon Local 297 of the IBPS and PMW has protested to the provincial government in the strongest  possible terms about the totally inadequate and inconvenient scheduling of ferries in this area.  The minimum wage in the province of B.C. has been  raised to $1.50 per hour.  Residents of Gower Point voted overwhelmingly not  to oppose the Gibsons sewer system because the  system calls for the installation of a sewage treatment  plant.  20 YEARS AGO  B.C. Hydro customers will save more than $7 million  annually as a result of electric rate reductions announced on behalf of B.C. Hydro. Customers have saved more  than 150 million because of rate decreases instituted by  B.C. Hydro since it came into existence three years ago.  25 YEARS AGO  Action to get the Recreation Committee moving has  failed so far. The normally quiet little backwater of Gunboat Bay in Pender Harbour saw an unusual flurry of activity recently as a result of the coincidence of chimney  fires and a fleet of fire-fighters manned by the wideawake volunteer fire department.  In a letter to the editor, Mrs. Jen Monrufet suggests  that he raise his voice to seek a ban on the testing of  nuclear weapons.  30 YEARS AGO  St. Mary's Hospital, Pender Harbour, has instituted a  drive to raise $20,000.  Kiwanis plans to erect a public library building are  laid before the Gibsons Public Library Assocation.  An increase of 38 per cent is reported in school enrolment, from 807 pupils in 1950 to 1,112 in 1954.  35 YEARS AGO  It may not be long before a swimming pool is constructed at Pender Harbour. S. Anderson, chairman of  the committee reported that plans are nearly complete.  Letters to the editor object to the suggestion that  Pender Harbour students attend high school in Gibsons.  Jackson Bros. Logging have offered Gibsons five  acres of land to be used as a memorial park.  The Sunshine  CO-PUBLISHERS  John Burnside M.M.

Merrick, is pictured here  in the "Castle" which was built by Harry Roberts, and which still  stands in Roberts Creek today. The organ, seen here in 1917, was  brought to Roberts Creek in 1910 before the Roberts Creek wharf  was built; it came by steamer and then had to be brought ashore in a  rowboat. In 1977 the organ was still in the "Castle" and in good  working condition. Harry Robert's wife, Birdie,, was educated in  Europe and was an accomplished musician.  Photo courtesy of Mr. & Mrs. C. Merrick, Roberts Creek  Tyner Talk  Centralization a danger  by James H. Tyner  In the boom times, before the  Great Depression, business  enterprises expanded by  establishing many branch plants  and other outlets. Elaborate  systems of centralized control  were devised and branch  managers devoted their time to  preparing numerous detailed  reports for head office._The  branch manager became a  report preparer who depended  upon head office for all  management decisions. The  Czar in head office had absolute  control - all reports were analyzed in head office - all management decisions were made in  head office.     ...... ...  Although the branch manager was in the best position to  understand the competition, the  local economic conditions and  the people of his community, he  could make no decisions independent of head office.  Usually his opinion was neither  sought nor wanted with the  result that local management  skills were lost. An office boy  made the most desirable branch  manager.  With the arrival of the Great  Depression there was no effective local management to meet  changing conditions - head office could not cope and many  large enterprises failed.  The error was recognized - it  was a mistake to centralize control - if branches were to succeed local initiative would have  to be encouraged.  This was a lesson taught by  the Great Depression.  From watching the behaviour  of Canada Post and various  government departments I  would say that the lesson has  been forgotten.  Before automation the postal  service was the pride of Canada.  With no machines to interfere  or get in the way the system  worked efficiently. A letter  mailed in Vancouver would be  properly delivered three days  later in Charlottetown. In Vancouver letters mailed in the morning would be delivered in the  afternoon. A letter was never  lost in the mail.  Then came automation.  The first thing done with  machines was to create bottle  necks. This was accomplished  by establishing a number of  distribution centres through  which the mail must flow. Now  deliveries can take several weeks  or the mail may never be  delivered. One postal official  was quoted as having said with  considerable pride that over 95  per cent of mail received was  delivered. What happened to  the rest was not explained.  ��� One comes to the conclusion  that the machines are being used  to centralize power and not to  facilitate the distribution of  mail.  An instance of the use of the  computer for centralization of  power can be seen in the sale  and distribution of Canada Savings Bonds.  It is my understanding that,  before the bureaucracy discovered the computer, orders for  savings bonds were taken by  financial institutions acting as  agents for the government and  as agents prepared and issued  the bonds. This system was both  fast and efficient - the purchaser  did not have to wait, the control  was local and any error could be  quickly corrected.  With this method the  bureaucracy had to trust others,  surely an intolerable situation.  They were able to change all this  with the use of the computer.  Instead of completing the transaction locally all orders were  sent to Ottawa and months  went by before the bonds were  ready for delivery. In the months of waiting neither the agents  nor the purchasers knew when  delivery would be made.  The lesson of the Great  Depression has been forgotten.  The machines are being used to  centralize the power and so  fulfill the Czarist ambitions of  the bureaucracy.  The computer is being used  for centralization of power outside the government as well.  This is particularly apparent in  the banks and other financial  institutions where all vital information is being centralized.  The computer can be used to  greater advantage in the decentralization of power. The computer, with its wealth of detailed  information, can encourage  local initiative by assisting  management in making enlightened decisions.  Unrequited  Love  "/ love the sea." she tells me.  Well and good, dear lady,  but let me caution you  the sea will not reciprocate.  During my years here  within sight of this house  the following have drowned:  1 setter  4 towboat men  3 heedless boys  3 youthful canoeists  3 fishermen  1 toddler  1 bride-to-have-been  As indicated by the foregoing  the sea is not selective.  It does not play favorites.  Unlike Jehovah it has no chosen people.  Hubert Evans  Maryanne's    viewpoint  The scales of self-respect  by Maryanne West  A gentleman phoned after the  airing of the discussion on International Youth Year with his  concern that schools are not  teaching young people to articulate properly.  I sympathize with his frustration in having to listen to  repetitive "you knows" and  similar non-sequiturs which  have no bearing on the topic  which seem to be becoming  embedded in the language, but  it's not just a fault of kids or  those with limited education.  One just has to listen to even  professional guests on radio or  television. I counted 11 "you  knows" in a three minute interview on MacNeil/Lehrer last  night by an art critic for the  New York Times!  Those who grew up speaking  the "King's English" have our  eyes and ears constantly assailed  by the evolution of the  language. Advertisers play  havoc with traditional spelling  and the mass media ride  roughshod over the rules of  grammar and syntax.  Pity the poor teacher of  English as the rules and definitions change with the kaleidoscopic qualities of a rock video.  Nouns become verbs all over the  scene and there's open season  on adverbs and adjectives.  We have to remember, too,  that language, its inflections,  rhythms and nuances is  something a child begins to  learn at birth and is established  long before he/she comes-to  school. What is right for you is  the way your parents speak,  their intonation and accent; the  rhythms of their speech, "you  knows" and all, are those which  sound correct to your ears and  you'll resent, understandably,  anyone who tries to tell you  your family doesn't speak correctly.  Teachers have to be sensitive  to  the  fact  that  speech and ,  language are very emotionally  charged and directly tied in to a  child's feelings of self-worth.  However hard the schools  work to teach children  "correct" grammar it's still to a  great extent an academic exercise, with little to do with the  "real" world of home, community and the mass media.  Even the CBC has given up  any pre-occupation with correct  English and its hosts are as happily colloquial as the rest of us.  In watching Community TV  one has always to remember  you have the privilege of being a  part of the learning process, and  learning goes on at a number of  levels not only by those on  camera but also by those who  watch. Watching oneself may  be the first time one becomes  critically aware of a mannerism  or how addicted we've become  to a particular phrase.  It's not only on camera that  we make mistakes and this week  we really fouled things up  technically, our apologies to all  concerned.  It has been suggested that it  isn't fair to the students for  them   to  learn   "live"   where  mistakes cannot be corrected,;  but they know they can only  learn to interact with the com-;  munity by doing it and that the:  risk of falling flat on their faces:  is one which they have to take.:  Since the inception of this  course there has been a quota- ���  tion taped to the control room:  wall, it reads:- "Failures are on-:  ly good things which did not:  happen, they have no weight in  the scales of self respect".  One's attitude to failure and  willingness to take risks is an ���  important area of development .'  and one which schools generally :  are not geared to handle well :  because it is such a personal :  matter. I have great admiration :  for the courage and willingness ;  with which teenagers accept ;  challenges which many adults  choose to avoid.  Please keep your comments  coming; feedback is critical to :  our growth and improvement. -.

Your last three paragraphs  state that the SPCA brought a  stray dog to the SCRD offices  the week before last. Horse  Hockey. I brought the pup into  those offices after two days of  run-around from the SPCA.  You see they informed me that  they were strictly a phone service, all volunteers, and there  was no pick-up service for dogs,  cats, etc. here on the Coast.  Please read on.  The pup wandered into our  yard and my son told me about  the pup. Well after phoning the  Press, your office, the vet's, the  SCRD offices, even B.C. Tel  directory (who, by the way,  have no listing for the SPCA on  the Coast) I finally got the  number. I phoned, no answer.  First thing the next morning I  phoned the SPCA. They told  me there was no pick-up service  on the Coast, fine, where would  we take the pup then.  They  didn't know, but would find out  and phone me back. (They  didn't even know where we  could take her!)  While they.are doing this I  phoned the RCMP to see if  anyone reported a lost pup, also  I phoned the vet offices, no dice  and no return phone call as well  as no answer when I phoned  back.  Needless to say I was a little  more than choked. I phoned the  cab service and told them to  charge the SPCA. We figured it  was over and done with...that  was until I read your article.  The SPCA and SCRD are just  trying to save face by looking  like the good guys helping this  poor little puppy.  We do need a control service  over here very badly and with  summer coming it's going to get  worse! Even more so if this  bureacratic horse crap keeps  flying around!  Alana Gow & Tim Orpen  Editor:  The March 25 edition of the  Coast News carried a front page  news item on dog control. This  item contains a statement attributed to John Burnside which  reads: "The chairman found a  dog a home in Sandy Hook and  sent it out in a taxi, for which  the taxi company wishes to  charge the SPCA."  The following is an account  of the incident in question. At  approximately 10:30 a.m.  Thursday, March 14, 1985 a  lady brought a German  Shepherd pup into the office.

In total, received by the  District School Review Committee were: 39 response  documents, one letter in  envelope (unopened), two  cards, 30 briefs received at the  forums, and three sets of notes  taken at school/community  meetings. All of these materials  were sent to the Provincial  School Review Committee, and  we have had acknowledgement  of their receipt.  This may not fully reflect the  response from the district, as I  know that many people sent in  their comments directly to the  Provincial Committee.  Copies of all the briefs  presented to the District Committee have been kept on file by  the school board, and are  available for perusal at the  District Resource Centre.  The District Schools Review  Committee was impressed with  the high level of considered  thought that was put in by participants in the review, particularly in light of the short  time allowed and the complexity  of the questions.

Standard Equipment  When you purchase a Skoda GLS 5-speed,  you're buying a car with over 45 standard  features, that you'll never have to pay a cent  extra for. Features like a 4-wheel independent  suspension, a front air dam, a rear deck  spoiler, velour upholstery, power assisted  brakes, light-touch rack and pinion steering,  rear and side window defrosters, and  Waxoyl's amazing anti-corrosion treatment  that's guaranteed for five years!  Of course, these are just a few of our  features but we're sure you get the picture.  When you purchase a Skoda GLS 5-speed,  there will be no unpleasant surprises, because  other car's "little extras" are included in our  price.  Parts & Service  Parts for the Skoda GLS 5-speed or the  Skoda Rapid sports coupe can be found at  any of our dealers across the country. No  matter which Skoda you drive, you're backed  by a coast-to-coast service network of  professionals, who are ready to service your  car.  But if you're the type who prefers to do  his own repairs, you'll be pleased to know  that all Skodas are surprisingly simple to  service. So simple in fact, that Skoda  provides you with a booklet which explains  maintenance and a tool kit to help you do it.  Safety  The Skoda GLS 5-speed, and all other  Skoda cars were designed with safety in  mind. Our engineers have placed the gasoline  tank ahead of the rear axle for added  protection in the event of a rear end  collision, but if you're in a frontal collision,  isn't it reassuring to know you're well  protected?  Experience  Skoda engineers have worked long and  hard to create such a safe, practical and  economical car. In fact, the Skoda car  company has over 90 years experience in  the transportation business.  World Champion  And all that experience has really paid off  for Skoda and their owners. Skoda has won  the British "A" division championship for  the last ten years, as well as the overall  European manufacturers' road racing  championship, making it one of the most  successful rally cars in the world.  We hope we've been able to answer all  your questions, but in case you still have a  few, please fill out the coupon below, and  we'll send you our brochure.

She had been in ;  contact with someone con- -  nected with the SPCA and was  apparently told that if she  would keep the dog until a  home could be found for it, the  SPCA would reimburse her for  the cost of feeding it. They lady  indicated, that she could no  longer cope with the dog and  was seeking assistance.  The staff was at a loss as to  who to contact and asked my  assistance. I tried to call Dr.  Perry, who is associated with  the SPCA and got no answer.   :  After   some   consideration   I  decided   to   contact   Mrs.   ;  Chamberlin, one of my consti-   ;���  tuents, who is active with the  SPCA. She told me that the   :  SPCA did not have a shelter but   '.  that some of the members took   ���  in stray and abandoned animals  until homes could be found for   ���  them. She then undertook to   ;  find such a home for the dog in   ���  question and call me back.  Mrs. Chamberlin called me   ;  back some 20 to 30 minutes   ���  later and gave me directions and  the name of a person in Sandy  Hook who would take the dog.  I passed that information to the   '���  lady in the office. The lady in   ���  the office told me that she had   ���'<  imposed upon a friend to bring  her to the office and did not feel   '.  that she could ask her friend to   '.  drive to Sandy Hook, but that   ;  she would have her husband   ;  take the dog to Sandy Hook   ���;  when he got off work.  There was no action or sug- ;  gestion on my part that a taxi ;  should be hired. Apparently a ���  taxi was hired. I offer as ;  evidence a memo from the ���  regional district receptionist >  concerning a conversation she >  had with Dr. Perry the follow- >  ing morning. This memo clearly {.  indicates that the lady who ���',  brought the dog into the office ���;  had hired the taxi to take the ;  dog to Sandy Hook.  The extent of my involvement   ;  in this matter was restricted to  assisting a lady in distress and   :  helping to prevent cruelty to an  animal.  J. Gurney, Chairman  Protest  Star Wars  Editor;  An old recollection pops out  at me from my remote school  days: a test question, "Who  dragged whom, in what manner, and how many times  around the walls of what?".  We had been exposed to a  smattering of Homer's Iliad and  knew the grisly answer. It was  Achilles, champion of the  Greeks, who discourteously  dragged the dead body of Hector, champion of the Trojans,  behind his chariot around the  walls of Troy. The hoax of the  wooden horse accomplished the  final downfall and sacking of  Troy and engendered the maxim, "Fear the Greeks when they  come bearing gifts".  Does a war 3000 years ago  have any relevance today? I  think so. The tools for killing  are different now but the  underlying motives and manners are the same: greed, deceit  and demagogy.  Peter Gzowski, in his morning program, recently interviewed Noam Chomsky, a distinguished and respected American  author and teacher, concerning  the Cold War. Chomsky  described the manipulative art  of controlling public opinion by  magnifying the opponent's  mistakes and atrocities while ignoring the mistakes and  atrocities of allies. Ongoing  confrontations all over the  globe are necessary, he said, "to  justify the big military budget".  When none are available, "they  make them up; some are simply  concocted: confrontations with  the Great Satan, heroic postur-  ings".  It is not difficult to recognize  who is dragging whom in our  country. It is the military who  are dragging us, the Canadian  people, not around the walls of  an ancient citadel, but wildly  around the crumbly rim of an  active volcano.  There are, they tell us, 60  days for Ottawa to ponder the  U.S. request for our contribution to Star Wars research (with  a price tag equally astronomical). Let us join to flood the  prime minister's office with letters of protest against this  research. The address is House  of Commons, Ottawa, Ontario,  K1A 0A6.

Electric, until they moved up to Gibsons in  1946.' Ed had been a visitor here  since 1929.  Ed and Molly opened up  Midway Groceries that year,  and ran the business until 1968  or 1969. They also built and  opened up Gibsons Lanes in  1960 which is still operational.

Greg Phelps  FIRE CHIEF  Halfmoon Bay Fire Department  by George Cooper, 886-8520  Ian Mackenzie reports that  son, Ardan, is out of intensive  care at Vancouver General after  the skiing accident that left him  unconscious in the snow for  nearly 12 hours.  "I have the greatest admiration for my wife's knowing  something was very wrong  when he didn't arrive home  after the last ferry. She knew  Ardan would want to be home  because he was to work the next  day at Hyak Marina."  "She persisted in calling the  other boys," Ian said, "until  she was sure he hadn't returned  to this side, and then she convinced the police that he must  still be on the slopes  somewhere.  "And she only then, when  she knew the search and rescue  team was out on the mountain,  that she sat down and allowed  the tears to come."  Ardan remained unconscious  four days in hospital from internal bruising of the brain and a  small blood clot. "Fortunately,  no bones were broken," said  Ian.  Did Ardan, refuse juice and  ask for ice cream when he  regained consciousness? "Oh, I  haven't heard that story," said  Ian, "but I do know that was  one of the first things he had to  eat."  Ian says he and Agathe do  appreciate the sympathy expressed by so many people.  "There were three congregations in Gibsons who  rememberd Ardan in prayer."  WORKSHOPS  On Friday, March 22,  workshops in how to develop  individual programs for the  handicapped were conducted by  Wayne Avery of North Vancouver.  Members of the Sunshine  Coast Association for the Handicapped found the proceedings  very practical and now feel the  Association can be of service to  those community members who  are handicapped and unable to  compete in the everyday work  world.  Mr. Avery, who is an adult  counsellor in the North Shore  Association for the Handicapped, discussed in detail the steps  to be taken in making a program plan for an individual who  is handicapped.  Open Air  Market  The Coast can soon look forward to doing some weekly  shopping at an old fashioned  market place.  The Open Air Market, at the  Omega parking lot, will be commencing Saturday, May 4 and  will be open every following  Saturday, 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., for  merchants, buyers and those  just wanting to join in with the  community spirit.  Among the items being sold  will be weavings, children's  clothing, dried flowers, pottery,  knitted items, carving, baked  goods, tortillas, flower boxes  and bedding out plants, music,  reflexology, jewellery, vegetables, cut flowers, crafts,  sculpture, painted clothing and  more. We could use more people selling food items that one  could use regularly, i.e.,  granola, yoghurt, breads,  homemade cheeses, etc.  For those interested in the  selling end of the market are expected to pay $5 for their  season's pass and pick up information explaining more about  the market.  They can do this Saturday,  April 6, 10:30 a.m. at the  Unemployment Action Centre  in Gibsons.  The season's pass in no way  commits persons to using the  market every Saturday; it simply means that they will have the  availability of the space when  they choose to use it. For those  who simply can't register then,  payment can be sent to Ja-  queline Brown, Box 1455, Gibsons. For more information call  Deborah at 886-9251.  WANTED  Used Furniture  and What Have You  We buy Beer Bottles  886-2812  First, he said, the handicapped person must be part of the  discussion of objectives in his  plan. Then the plan must be  quite specific, for example, program objectives that state Mr. X  will learn to communicate using  sign language are too general,  and instead need to be practical  in stating, for example, that Mr.  X will learn four specific signs  using one particular method.  Members felt the workshops  provided the definite methods  to bring various agencies and  persons together to determine  what is useful for a handicapped person and to maintain a  record for all to refer to.  GRADUATES  Lizette Berdahl, a 1953  graduate of Elphinstone and  winner of the Gordon Booth  Memorial Bursary, is a student  this year at Cap College in  North Vancouver. She is doing  the one-year course in architectural drafting and computer  aided drafting.  When she completes this  course she will be qualified to  begin work as a junior draftsman. If there are no openings  in the architecture firms, Lizette  will look to taking courses in  design or in some phase of computer work.  Her sister Lee is busy, too, at  Cap College doing a year's  course in the Alternate Career  Program in food preparation.  Lee particularly enjoys the practical part of her course where  she works in various restaurants  in the city.  Kathy Baba, a 1983 Elphinstone graduate, is at present  working' in Toronto and hopes  to enrol in that city's School of  Fine Arts this fall.  Last year Kathy did the Fine  Arts course at Capilano College  with a B+ average. This past  fall she did some modelling for  the ladies' wear store where she  is employed, and fills in her  spare time with a course or two  in nigh school.  While she was employed last  summer as travel hostess for  B.C. Ferries, Kathy continued  in her hobby of decorating  T-shirts, advancing from the  silk screen process she had used  the year before to the air brush.  And she found a ready market  for her work.  Kathy likes the opportunities  Toronto offers those in the fine  arts field, but she is somewhat  appalled by Ontario weather,  her mother says, and adds,  "She hasn't spent a summer  there yet."  yi     DIET CENTER.  \ THE  1    WEIGHT-LOSS  PROFESSIONALS!  ,iS?

SHOW BIZ  We on the Sunshine Coast  are most fortunate in that we  have two local newspapers who  give excellent coverage and encouragement to local entertainment activities. This realization  came when we recently attended  an absolutely marvellous performance of the Desert Song at  the Centennial Theatre in North  Van and found that there had  been absolutely no reviews or  pictures in any of the papers  there. It was a presentation by  the North Shore Light Opera  Society who should be highly  commended for this production.  Of particular interest was the  fact that the lead role of Margot  was beautifully performed by  someone who has become quite  well known in our parts where  she has sung in several Nikki  Weber shows and won the Gibsons Sea Cavalcade talent show  a couple of years ago.  Arline Collins will shortly be  taking up permanent residence  at Granthams Landing and you  will have a chance to get to  know her. There must be many  people involved in such a production as the Desert Song, but  worthy of special mention must  be Jeff Harris for his set design  and decoration and his wife  Joan who was artistic director.  The costumes, which were exquisite, were the work of Carol  Ahern together with a crew of  fine craftspeople.  The Halfmoon Hams show  was well received by their  faithful fans on both Friday and  Saturday nights last week. The  69er's were great, as was special  guest Ronnie Dunn. For those  of you who missed the show  you will have an opportunity to  see a repeat performance on the  night of April 26 when proceeds  will to to the Cystic Fibrosis  Foundation. Tickets are now  available for this show at the  Halfmoon Bay Store and both  book shops in Sechelt. Usual  price of $4, which will go to a  good cause.

And everyone had a  great time, too.  Highlights of the event were  the haunted house, video arcade, "The Wizard of Oz" by  the grade eight class, and the infamous dunk tank. I heard that  Larry Curtiss particularly enjoyed his pitches. The event was  a super way to bring the long  term to a close.  One problem: not enough of  that delicious pizza!  GOLF COURSE OPENING  Despite the rotten weather and  the power outages (8 hours in  some places, including our  house) the opening of the  Pender Harbour Golf Course  was very successful.  The clubhouse was packed  while I was there, and apparently was absolutely bursting later  on. All the Pathfinder memberships were sold.  Steve Boyd gave us the grand  tour in Sam Walker's four  wheel drive���the only way to  travel on the access roads. I was  amazed at the amount of work  that had been done. Steve gave  us a really good overview of the  course.  I'm not a golfer (yet) but I  did picture the fourth hole  covered with 18 inches of  powdery snow next  winter���ideal cross country ski  terrain!  CONGRATULATIONS!       ;.

SCRD nixes raise  A recommendation from the  town of Gibsons to have the  SCRD endorse an application to  Human Resources for welfare  rate increases has been voted  down by the regional board.  "We as the SCRD should not  be involved in this," said Area  A Director Vaughan. "It's not  within our mandate; we know  Human Resources is going to  ignore the motion anyway and  we'd   only   be   looking   for  brownie points in the local  newspapers. This to me is  hypocrisy." ���'  Gibsons Director Burnside  called for some expression of  compassion and understanding  from the board, pointing out  that 'it has been proven that  money that goes into the hands  of welfare recipients goes back  immediately into the community'.

Coast News, April 3,1985  by Joan Rigby  St. Mary's Hospital Auxilary  (Sunshine Coast) is not resting  on its laurels. Putting behind  them their $70,000 donation,  plus the tMhing bed and new  tables for fc.Ai.wded Care, the  executive council met Tuesday,  March 26 to plan, promote,  support, work and give.  Six hundred and forty hours  were worked in the Thrift Shop  and 117'/2 hours in the Gift  Shop, plus hours given to hair-  dressing, library cart, flower  care and the support work in  physio and Extended Care.  Our director of volunteers,  Mrs. Vivian Tepoorten,  reported five hew in-service  volunteers had been oriented  for physio, ECU and library.  Mrs. Tepoorten will be the guest  speaker at the Roberts Creek  branch meeting, April 15, at 11  a.m. She recently attended the  Conference of the Western  Association of Directors of  Volunteers in " Victoria, and  found it interesting and an excellent source and review of  business practices as pertaining  to her position as our director  of volunteers.  Mrs. Tepoorten is a busy  lady. She and Mrs. Pauline  Lamb, executive council correspondence secretary,  chaperoned two of our junior  volunteers, Stacy Kirkbride and  Sherri Jennens, to the Candy  Stripers' conference in  Kamloops. Mrs. Lamb made  "trade favours" for the girls to  share with Candy Stripers and  Cadets (boys!) from other  hospitals.  The girls and chaperones  came home enthusiastic about  all the possibilities for service at  our own St. Mary's Hospital.  The board of trustees is  hosting an Appreciation Tea for  auxiliary members on Sunday,  June 2 at 1:30 p.m. Auxiliary  members work because they are  convinced it is worthwhile, but  is is a lovely bonus when we  realize others appreciate our efforts.  Another delightful event is to  be celebrated during Volunteer  Week - a Volunteer Proclamation Tea on Wednesday, April  17 at 4:30 to 6 p.m. at the  Senior Citizens' Hall, Sechelt.  It's a potluck dessert affair - we  take ourselves and a special  dessert and join in the fun of  meeting and mingling with  members of other volunteer  groups. There will be special  guest speakers and prizes, and  awards will be given for Long  Term Service, and for a  category called "Blood, Sweat  and Tears".  Our nominee for the Service  Award is Mrs. Lil Flummerfelt  who was our first chairman of  council, president of her own  Roberts Creek branch, chairman of the Thrift Shop, and is  still working in the Thrift Shop  and knitting for the Gift Shop..  Our nominee for the other  category is Mary Macdonald,  who was our director of  volunteers for so long she  deserves a pension, but this is  the best we can offer her.  Whenever there was no one else,  to fill a job there was Mary  Macdonald.  All members of the auxiliary  wishing to attend this Proclamation Tea should register  with their branches before April  10, or contact Betty Laidlaw,  our auxiliary president.

We could eat red jello night after night,  followed by, what kind of bargains were these - two jars  of marinated artichoke hearts! These can't just sit here,  we must use them," and he opened up a jar of stuffed  olives. He had, of course, by-passed the packages of  spaghetti, tuna fish and canned beans, but in the interests of thrift I reached in and brought out a package of  cocoa powder and made chocolate cake. "Is it a birthday?" said Small wondering! Then I made a fairly thrifty  supper which met with their approval. I wonder if I'm  now justified in opening one of my jars of marinated artichoke hearts!

As you will remember, after  an evening of discussion at  Cedar Grove on March 12 going  through the budget figures item  by item, the school trustees,  under pressure from the parents  and teachers decided to submit  a budget based on 1984 expenditures plus 1.75 per cent to  cover the possible approval of a  salary increase for teachers by  Commissioner Peck.  To no one's surprise the  response from the minister was  prompt and brisk:- "I hereby  direct that the amount of the  budget for School District No.  46 for the fiscal year 1985/86 be  $10,038,965.  "I further direct the Board of  . School Trustees of your district  to amend the budget previously  submitted to me so as to conform to the amount of the  budget established for the fiscal  year 1985/86.  "I request a copy of the  amended budget no later than  seven days prior to April 20,  1985."  According to Secretary Mills,  the district will now have to find  an extra $469,505.  A couple of days later a second letter from the minister requested all relevant information  with regards to options considered by the board when making the "needs" budget, as well  as reports and studies on the impact of various options, notes  and minutes made at meetings  of the board, to be forwarded,  "by return post".  Whether this is a political  manoeuvre or a genuine effort  to understand the educational  needs of the district and  whether our concerns are valid  remains to be seen.  The latest move however is  not optimistic, a message from  the ministry that we must subtract another $8,488, something  to do with a shortfall in federal  funding. That will bring the  shortfall to $477,993.  Sechelt Teachers' Association  president Brian Butcher expressed his concern that the  board should remain firm in its  determination to fight for adequate levels of funding.  "If you really feel the budget  was a good one, surely you're  not just going to cave in?" he  commented.  Stay tuned till the next  meeting on April 9 at Sechelt  elementary school.  Capilano  cutbacks  opposed  Area D Director Brett  McGillivray, speaking to the  SCRD on recent cutbacks at  Capilano College, asked that  the regional district send a letter  to education minister Heinrich  opposing any further cutbacks  to the college's program.  Referring to the "specific  beating that the college is suffering" McGillivray who also  teaches at the college said, "We  seem to have been singled out  for another million dollar cut in  1985/86."  "It's very nice to be able to  take courses," said Area A  representative Ian Vaughan,  "but what good does it do, I  really question education for  education's sake," he added.  Area C Director Peggy Connor in a stand for the practical  value of a Cap College education, cited the example of a  family member who was taking  courses in a necessary attempt  to further her career.  Director McGillivray stressed  that the college was "taking on  the teaching of pragmatic  courses". McGillivray mentioned courses in small engine repair  and aquaculture as examples of  this type of education.  Chairman Jim Gurney suggested that a letter to the  minister specifically include  mention of the existing ^^fits  that Capilano College provides  to the community. A motion to  this effect was passed by the  board and Gurney offered to  assist in the preparation of this  letter.

Coast News, April 3,1985  Vg  a����piMa����alirillirilTlltrra  ilf$ttiX&MiWM^i&&  mean�� ar\  on display  by Keith Wallace  What is landscape? Artistic  expression of the landscape,  which in British Columbia was  first influenced by the British  school during the 19th century  colonialism, began to change in  the 1920's with Emily Carr who  overturned the documentative  and picturesque portrayal into a  search of the spirit that is  distinct to the west coast and to  the forces of nature. Since then,  the landscape evolved through  1950's abstract expressionism,  1960's formalism, and on to  1970's conceptualism, installations, and site specific works,  whereby the tradtional notion  of the landscape was completely  shattered.  From April 3 to April 20 the  Sunshine Coast Arts Centre in  Sechelt is presenting the work of  six Vancouver aftists'~who exhibit some recent developments  in dealing with the landscape.  This selection by no means  represents a dramatic  resurgence or new movement of  landscape artists, yet it is  notable that landscape imagery  is seriously being explored, and  with some new points of view.  The curious thing about this  work is that most of it is not  necessarily detectable as local  scenery, instead these artists  turn towards the human relationship with nature and it is  through landscape that we can  learn something about ouselves.  Nomi Kaplan's series of  photographs documents a collection of a fallen plums shaped  into a figurative form and  photographed to reveal the  changes from decomposition  and regeneration over a year indicating that we are a part of  nature's cycle.  Mina Torino's paintings of  stumps also suggest the processes of nature���the stumps  are dead objects, but the energy  behind the paint application  hints that decay creates other  forms of life, that death is but  an inevitable continuance of the  ; giving.  ^ Robert Linsley and Derek  Root paint dramatic imaginary  visions of moiiritajns, cliffs, and  chasms that set the scene for  contemplation and introspection. Linsley's painting style is  quite tight, with mystical images  implying man's insignificance to  nature, whiie Root's work is  more abstract, moody, and uses  a rich surface quality to hold the  viewers attention, to draw them  in.  Larry Osland, who portrays  actual locations, finds their  bucolic beauty should be  recorded not only for its own  sake, but also because it is some  of the last rural real estate on  Lulu Island and is threatened by  encroaching suburbia but a mile  away......        "Philippe Raphanel also looks  to the changing of the landscape  by humans. Though not  necessarily a condemnation of  logging as such, his renditions  of logs, cut and being hauled  away gives them some sympathetic dignity.  This exhibition should provide interest to an area like the  Sunshine Coast which is surrounded by the landscape.     v .  Bergman  magical  In the minds of most  filmgoers, Bergman movies  have become synonymous with  serious cinema. The 1983 film  Fanny and Alexander heralds  the arrival of a new Bergman  Fanny and Alexander, like  other Bergman films, has its  roots in his childhood. The film  is about two children growing  up in a theatrical family around  the turn of the century. When  the children's father dies, their  mother marries the town  bishop. He and his relatives  turn out to be monsters who  create a nightmare for the  children and their mother.  Order is restored in a violent  and magical climax conjured up  by the young Alexander.  The film is at the Arts Centre  Wednesday, April 3, at 8 p.m.;  adults $3.50, students and  seniors $2.50.

Annie McDannald of Gibsons marked her retirement from 31 years of ferry service at the Gypsy
Restaurant in Gibsons last week with a surprise party thrown by her co-workers on B watch and some
others who had worked with her over the years. Mrs. McDannald started working for the Black Bail Ferries, working mainly on the M. V. Bainbridge on May 15, 1954. Her colleagues presented her with a
beautiful Alexandrite birthstone ring. Daughters Janet Nickerson of Powell River and Melody Henry of
Gibsons were present for the happy occasion. -johnBumswephoio

The Vancouver Trojans fell  prey to Gibsons' third division  in the first game, 19-0, giving  the locals a possible first or second place finish in the VRU.  Arch rival Meralomas may  have clinched first place if they  won against UBC Totems on  Saturday. If they lost it would  leave top notch to Gibsons.  Scoring came late in the first  half for the first 15's when the  three line overlapped Trojan's  winger. Fullback Chris Tynan  was the extra back, knifing his  way in. Captain Dave "Raincoat" Rainer coverted easily.  Rainer also added an 18-yard  penalty giving Gibsons a 9-0 advantage at the half.  Early in the second half action winger Freeman Smith was  set up beautifully by an inside  back for the second try. We  drove in untouched, dropping  the ball perfectly between the  posts, making Rainer's second  convert a breeze.  And to finish off the shutout  a high up and under kick was  placed by scrum half Dave  Rainer and pursued swiftly by  Rainer beating the Trojan  fullback and pouncing on the  rolling ball for the try. Final  score was 19-0.  Third division will likely meet  Trojans in the semi finals in two  weeks.  Fifteen to seven was the score  for the Gibsons' up and coming  fourth division side. It was their  first win of the second half and  a decisive win at that. Rowers'  old side seemed somewhat surprised at the hometown spirit.  Scoring opened with a kicked  rolling ball in the Red end zone  with winger Tracy Joe finding it  first. Mike Gibsons converted.  Winger Brian Lymer scored  second, beating his man to the  outside and once again,  "Surefoot" Gibsons converted.  Mike Gibsons also scored Gibsons' final, a 30 yard field goal.  The Piggies may or may not  play in the finals but keep  posted for more information.  Good rugby!

Have an enjoyable summer  and we hope to see you again  next year!  by Dianne Evans  One of the most delicious  vegetables, and the most expensive on the produce shelf, is the  asparagus. Some people are intimidated by the idea of growing asparagus but with careful  preparation and cultivation, a  good crop may be produced.  The most important' thing is  to prepare the soil well, and  most growers seem to recommend the trench method for  planting. The bed where the  asparagus is to remain should  be well-drained, in full sun, and  with pH 6-7. The soil should be  light, deep, loose, free of rocks  which make the spears grow  crookedly, and preferably, free  of weeds, especially those such  as quack grass and other perennial pests.  Asparagus must be well fed,  so cultivate the soil deeply adding phosphorus and potash at  a rate of about 5-10 pounds per  100 square feet. Dig a trench  about 12 inches wide and deep.  Fill the bottom four inches with  compost, well-rotted manure or  some good fine top soil mixed  with dried manure. Firm this  down, and flatten. Take the  roots (these may be purchased  one, two or three years old from  a reputable nursery; two year  old roots should produce a  small crop the year after planting) and spread them fan-like  upon the soil, about 18 inches  apart. Cover them with an inch  or two of good garden soil and  firm it down.  As the stalks grow, pull in the  soil from beside the trench until  it is filled in. Asparagus may be  started from seed, but you will  not get a crop for three years  from the time of germination.  Choose a rust-resistant variety,  such as Martha Washington.  A high soil-moisture content  is necessary for good production, so a thick mulch is important at all times. This will also  keep down the weeds and  eliminate most cultivation  which can disturb the roots. It  should be four to six inches  deep, and preferably chopped  or shredded. Mushroom manure is ideal, and grass clippings  also do very well as do pea  pods. Whatever mulch used, it  should be neutral pH and have  a high nitrogen content.  After the harvest, which  should take place when the  spears are from four to eight inches high, before the tips begin  to open, protect the soil from  drying out with either a light  mulch of straw or allow small  annual weeds to remain. In the  winter add about three inches of  well-rotted manure. Do not cut  the tops down; they store food  for the spring shoots to use. In  the spring they can easily be  crushed and left to disintegrate  on the soil.  If you keep a good mulch on  the bed, the asparagus will not  need watering unless it is  unusually dry. When  harvesting, simply break the  stems where they will; if you  have to cut the stem it will be  too tough to eat anyway. Only  pick the large, thick stalks; let  the thin ones grow. They are  thin because their food supply  needs replenishing through the  tops. After the harvest a side  dressing of fertilizer should be  used; three parts greensand or  some other potash source, one  part dried blood, one part bone  meal, at a rate of about three  pounds to a 100 foot row.

Socred  purchasing  by Don Lockstead  The Socred government has  announced virtually the same  government purchasing policy  at least three times in the last  eight years.  Recently the premier and the  finance minister have re-  announced virtually the same  purchasing policy unveiled in  1977 and again in 1982. The  idea is a simple one���harness  the purchasing power of  government to create and maintain jobs in B.C.  Purchasing policy appears to  be something the Socreds trot  out at least one between elections to give false hope to B.C.  suppliers. If past experience is  any guide, they then go out and  shop beyond B.C.'s borders for  the cheapest goods available,  regardless of the effect on B.C.  firms and their effect on B.C.  firms and employees.  Several important B.C.  government contracts have gone  to firms outside B.C. since the  purchasing policy was first announced. The other day in the  the premier, "Why should the  B.C.    business   community  believe you now?".  Mr. Stupich cited several  specific cases to back his concern: 1. The ALRT project has  used reinforcing steel for concrete (re-bar) from Alberta and  U.S. suppliers, despite the existence of local suppliers. 2. Re-  bar for the Mclnnes overpass  managed by the B.C. Development Corporation and its subsidiaries, was also purchased  from the U.S., Alberta and  Korea. 3. Feranti-Packard Ltd.  used to supply transformers to  B.C. Hydro. Hydro has now  transferred its source of supply  to eastern Canada, throwing 35  employees out of work.

As a statistician I know  that if there is one chance in a  million of something happening  eventually it will happen. With  a 50 per cent chance I know it is  going to happen. The time is  short; our need is urgent."  The speaker was economist  Emil Bjornson at the most recent seminar organized by the  Solidarity Coalition on the subject: War Production - The  Answer To Unemployment?  Bjornson called for bi-lateral  disarmament to begin without  delay.  "It is not a half dozen people  in Geneva who will decide the  issue of war and peace. The  pressure of all of us will decide.  People, must force their  spokesmen toward peace," said  Bjornson.  Referring to the recent debate  on Canadian participation in  the so-called Star Wars plans of  American president Ronald  Reagan, Bjornson told the  seminar:  "Prime Minister Mulroney is  not enthusiastic about Canadian participation in Star Wars  -but he says if it's going to  create 15,000 jobs 'we'll have to  look at it'."  Earlier in the meeting Trade  Unionist for Peace, Duncan  Shields, had estimated that  15,000 jobs could be created in  reforestation and small stream  salmon enhancement at a cost  of only 514 per cent annually of  the Canadian arms budget.  Economist Bjornson charged  that arms manufacture was the  cause of the inflation which had  been bedevilling our economy in  recent years and had led to the  present harsh climate of  unemployment.  "We are told that inflation is  caused by too much money  chasing too few goods," said  Bjornson, "that is a basic law  of economics. The economy  basically is a volume of goods  and services which produces an  equal volume of money (wages  and profit). The armaments in  dustry produces $1 billion annually in wages and profits but  no corresponding usable goods  and services. Hence we have too  much money chasing too few  goods and thus does military  spending produce inflation."  Bjornson distributed charts  dating back to the American  Revolutionary War which show  a complete correlation between  rates of inflation and high  military spending.  Bjornson pointed to the fact  that two key members of President Reagan's cabinet,  Secretary of State George  Schultz and Secretary of  Defence Caspar Weinberger,  were both picked from Bechtel  Steel, a company well rewarded  in the past by armaments contracts.  "We are having the decisions  on military spending being  made by those who stand to  profit by these decisions," said  Bjornson.  "This month, for the first  time," said Bjornson, "the  United States of America is a  net debtor." He explained that  the present seemingly robust  American economy was sustained by money flooding into the  country to take advantage of  . high American interest rates  and an over-valued dollar.  "In Germany interest rates  are at 6 per cent. In America  they are 12 per cent. It is no  wonder German investors are  transferring their funds into the  American dollar.  "Essentially, the Americans  are spending enormous sums of  money on armaments and importing more and more of the  goods that their people require,  hence the negative trade  balance. In 1984 the U.S. imported $150 billion more than it  sold to the rest of the world,"  said Bjornson.  The economist predicted that  the stresses attendant on the  American economy would lead  to a major devaluation in less  than 18 months.  "There is no future in nuclear  spending   and,    as   Duncan  They went for salmon shark but, alas, caught only salmon.  , ���Art McGInnes photo  Nothing but salmon  When it comes to landing  salmon sharks for our Tourism  Association's ExpOasis Salmon  Shark promotion, Murphy's  Law prevails: "If anything can  go wrong, it will!"  "We planned to have live  salmon sharks in our aquarium  at Sunnycrest Mall last  weekend, and we aim to have  them at Trail Bay next week.  But everyone caught salmon by  mistake!" said Association  Treasurer Art McGinnis, who is  organizing ' the salmon shark  promotion.

V8W2Z7  Province of British Columbia  Ministry of Agriculture and Food  association members, had contacted various commercial  fishermen, participants in recent  derbies and more than a few individual sports fishermen, asking them to hang onto any  salmon sharks they catch.  Behind the request: detailed  arrangements for holding  sharks in netpens; transporting  them in refrigerated live-tanks  and displaying them in a giant  aquarium to boost sales of the  Salmon Shark Lottery/Derby  ticket books; $20,000 in prizes  to be won, whether you fish or  not, with proceeds going to improve the Coast's tourism industry. What happens? Not a  salmon shark to be seen -  everyone lands salmon by  mistake!  "We have to get some  salmon sharks," added McGinnis. "Tell your readers we need  them dead or alive, most of all  alive. If dead, keep them cold;  we need them fresh for smoking."  The Tourism Association has  scheduled to display live salmon  sharks at the Sunshine Coast  booth in the Sportsman's Show  in B.C. Place, April 8 to 12, in  the Richmond Centre Mall during the week of April 22 and on  the Queen of Alberni during the  week prior to the Salmon Shark  Derby, scheduled for the long  May 18/19 weekend.  The display drew 50,000 people at the Vancouver Boat Show  last February.

If you catch  a salmon by mistake? We  should all be so lucky  Shields told us earlier, a fraction  of the money spent on armaments could provide us with  an instant increase in the  number of people employed  and if they were employed in  reforestation and salmon  enhancement, for example, that  would lead to still more jobs in  years to come."

This fact is borne out by the  year that followed my leaving  Kemano where I had almost  worked myself into an early  grave, catering to those hard-  rock miners who were putting  up some kind of world's record  as far as tunnelling was concerned.  I do remember vaguely the  dreary rounds of doctors' offices on Granville Street and  along Broadway where these  learned followers of Hippocrates pondered over what  was wrong with me and, for a  fat fee, recommended this or  that treatment to assist me in  regaining my health. To be  truthful, none of their nostrums  or panaceas worked and it was  only after a long, protracted  drunk and the ensuing weeks I  spent away from the house out  on East Hastings Street that I  began to feel well enough to  make an effort to find work.  I recall a brief voyage on one  of the small Standard Oil  tankers that ply the West Coast.  I only made one trip as I  became involved in a heated  argument with the pompous little squirt of a captain, who apparently was under the delusion  that he was in command of the  SS. Queen Elizabeth I. The frequent stops at such Godforsaken places as Alert Bay,  Namu and Bella Coola failed to  impress me, in fact they got on  my nerves. So when the ship  returned to Vancouver my  duffle-bag was already packed  and I was glad to get ashore.  My next venture on the SS.  Prince George wasn't much better, although of longer duration. I had hired on as 3rd cook,  due to the seniority system of  both railroad and steamship  companies. I had understood  that I was to be the fish and  sauce cook, and while I thought  I knew all about cooking a fish,  1 was a little dubious about the  sauce business as, frankly,  many of them I had never even  heard of let alone attempted  their preparation.  Fortunately for me, the head  chef Harry J. was not only proficient in all aspects of his trade  but more than willing to share  his knowledge and help me  along during the first few difficult days. The sous-chef was  something else altogether and  our relations were far from cordial.  As far as I can remember, I  made three trips to Alaska and  rather enjoyed them except for  one fact and that was the complete lack of fresh air obtainable  while on board. Although the  galley, buried deep in the  bowels of the ship, had ample  ventilation in the way of electric  fans, etc., we were crowded in,  four to a cabin and, being below  the  waterline,  there were no  Hartleys  auto  body  Monday - Friday 8 - 5  Saturday 10 - Noon  - recommended by South Coast Ford -  885-9877  Home Phone 885-5085  *  i.C.B.C.

The crew, apart  from the necessary deckhands,  were forbidden on the upper  decks - they were reserved strictly for the passengers. So after  coming off shift and having a  shower there was simply no  place to go except return to the  stuffy cabin and while away the  hours reading or sleeping.  I recall very little of the  Alaskan ports we visited.  Although it must have been a  thrilling experience for the  passengers, many of whom probably had never been on a ship  before, I found little attraction  in Sitka, Juneau or Anchorage.  However, I remember rather  vividly a Sunday in Ketchikan.  It was, as far as I know, the only place in Alaska that had a  legally operated red-light  district. The area involved was  known as Creek Street and one  had to cross a bridge over a  small stream to get there, hence  the name.  I had wrangled my way into  one of the clubs that were open  on Sundays and, after a lot of  animated conversation and  many drinks, it was decided by  my companion (an officer on an  American ship docked near  ours) that a visit to one of the  "cat-houses" would be in  order. It was only a matter of a  few blocks to negotiate but he  felt we should "arrive in style^T  as he put it, so we took a taxi.  About all I can remember  after so many years was that we  staggered in and out of at least a  half a dozen places before we  settled on one where all the girls  claimed to be either Spanish or  Indian princesses.  I left my friend there in care  of the Madam as he had passed  out cold and I just made it back  to the SS. Prince George before  she sailed. It had been an interesting afternoon and at least,  if only for a brief period, I had  enjoyed a little fresh air!  Police  Continued from page 14  while attempting to pass the  truck. Babin was driving a  motorcycle.  Another motor vehicle accident involving a motorcycle was  reported on March 27. Thirty-  three year old Gilles Lehoux of  Gibsons was taken to St. Mary's  Hospital for treatment of head  injuries as a result of the accident.  SECHELT RCMP  Several break and entries  were reported last week.  On March 21, a residence on  Arbutus Drive was entered. A  window was broken in order to  gain entry.

Forty-nine brave  and hardy souls made the jaunt  from Gibsons to Sechelt  through April showers, and not  va single spirit was dampened!  Many thanks to Blane  Hagedorn at Super Valu for  providing oranges and water  glasses along the route.  Lemonade courtesy of Ken's  Lucky Dollar in cups from  Audrey's Coffee Service  awaited runners at the end of  the run, and all these  refreshments were most appreciated.  Much community spirit was  shown in the donation of prizes  for runners. In addition to win- *  ning the Coast News Challenge  Cup, first place finisher Glen  Chilton of Winnipeg (visiting  family in Sechelt) received an  Adidas sports bag courtesy of  Adidas and Trail Bay Sports.  Adidas and Trail Bay Sports  also provided a bag for the  youngest runner, 12-year old  Davis Mah of Gibsons.  TBS teamed up with Nike to  donate a bag to the first woman  finisher, Ricki Ferguson. Nike  also provided start and finish  banners for the run, and Adidas  provided numbers.  Second place finisher Steve  Miles enjoyed a brunch for two,  courtesy of Andy's Restaurant,  third place finisher Barry Janyk  received a complimentary lunch  for two at the Gibsons' new  Harbour Restaurant; and the  winning relay team of Donald  Turene, Sheila Young, Paul  Langevin and Raymond Dube  were presented with a $20 gift  certificate from the Creekhouse  Restaurant in Roberts Creek.  Fittingly, complimentary  passes to fitness classes were  presented to the first Master  finishers (men over 40 and  woman over 35): Lyn Christian  received a three-month pass to  Jacquie Allen's Coast Fitness,  Irene Lugsdin received 12 free  passes to the Gibsons Weight  Room, and a three month pass  to the Weight Room went to  Arne Tveit-Pettersen, the oldest  runner of the day.  Random draws were made  among those taking part in the  run, and Raymond Dube and  Zyg Regulant also received  three month passes to Coast  Fitness classes.  With such community support behind it, the April Fool's  Run seem destined to be an annual Sunshine Coast event for  some time to come. Thank you  sincerely to all who make it  possible.  Fran Burnside  Maverick explains  Editor:  I respect and accept your letter of criticism, which appeared  in the Coast News' "Letter to  the Editor" of March 25,1985.  We have problems from time  to time with our coaches arriving at Horseshoe Bay Ferry Terminal, with insufficient time for  loading, due to downtown traffic and the Lion's Gate Bridge.  This tie-up is mainly caused  from 1985 traffic being handled  through the causeway and onto  a bridge designed to handle the  traffic of 1939.  At this point, I would like to  Thanks, Mr. Rosner  Editor:  Further to the letter I wrote to  you last week, which you  published in the issue of March  25, 1985.  I think it fair to report that I  received a courteous reply and  an apology for the inconvenience caused to the five ladies  who signed the protest. Regarding further problems of  passengers with parcels and/or  baggage, he had three suggestions: 1. that they board the bus  at the bus depot or 2. that they  consign their baggage to the  ferry service.  Regarding these two - it can  be said regarding 1. that it is not  always possible or convenient;  and regarding 2. that the ferry is  not responsible for the property  placed in its care in this way,  and it is moreover inconvenient  and time devouring to go this  route.  But his third suggestion is key  and should be carefully noted  for future reference by all those  to whom it may concern, and, if  faithfully adhered to, should be  much appreciated.  Suggestion 3. (I now quote)  -'Another way is to walk onto  the ferry with your baggage and  walk to the far end of the ship  where the driver'will load your  bags and sell you a ticket. The  driver is usually around the bus  for a few minutes before going  upstairs.'  The italics are mine, to emphasize the important part of  the message. Thank you, Mr.  Rosner!  (Miss) A.M. Martin  Gibsons, B.C.  clarify to you, and our many  favoured patrons, why we do  not accept passengers at the  Horseshoe Bay Ferry Terminal.  1. Due to preferential  loading, (first on, first off),  there would be insufficient time,  for reasons stated above, to  load passengers and baggage  safely.  2. We act as agents for collection of B.C. Ferries' passenger  tolls and are responsible to the  ferries for passengers on our  bus.  It has happened before,  where a passenger has left the  Nanaimo or Bowen Island  Ferry, without purchasing a  ticket for the Sunshine Coast  Ferry, the passenger would  then approach our driver,  wishing to purchase a bus ticket  from Langdale to points on the  Sunshine Coast, thus circumventing the B.C. Ferries checkpoint, at the head of the ramp.  Maverick Coach Lines, being  agents of B.C. Ferries, cannot  allow a mistake of this nature to  happen. Passengers may obtain  tickets from our driver for  points on the Sunshine Coast,  after the ship is underway. An  announcement will be made  abord the ferry, that "tickets  may be obtained from the bus  driver, in the No. 1 lounge".  I trust this has covered ail  bases for you and that you  understand why we have rules  and regulations, that have to be  followed on a regular basis.  F.D.

I trust  you will find space in your excellent paper for the following  letter.  The graph published in the  Coast News, January 7, under  the heading, "One million  Hiroshimas. Do you think we  have enough nuclear  firepower?", clearly indicates  the sheer insanity of the arms  race. Since there is already  enough nuclear power in existence to destroy all life on  earth 50 times in a war of only a  few hours, what possible excuse  can there be for making more?  Certainly not a military excuse.  While Ronald Reagan and the  Pentagon people may not give  us any indication that they have  the very minimal intelligence to  understand this, I think we must  assume that they have. No one  could be quite that stupid.  There just has to be a different  excuse.  When President Eisenhower  retired from office and said,  "there is a powerful milit  B.C. &. Yukon  industrial complex ruling this  country", he confirmed  something that many of us  already knew. The strength of  their lobby in Washington is  frightening.  If the American military  budget was cancelled the  economy of the country would  collapse almost over-night, and  drag down with it, the  economies of most of the other  capitalist countries of the world.  If nothing was put in its place,  that is. Propping up the  economy by military spending is  a terribly dangerous and inefficient method. I can think of  dozens of developments and improvements that could be made  in this country with a very small  part of our military budget, and  I am sure you can too.  The United States is so  obsessed with their irrational  fear of communism that they  are actually promoting its  spread. When I look at countries such as we find in Central  and South America, where the  United States is propping up  rotten dictatorships with  military assistance, insuring that  The growth centra of B.C.'s West  Kootenays, Castlegar, invites inquiries regarding business opportunities.

Since the United States is so  obsessed with fear of the spread  of communism, would it not be  better to offer people a superior  alternative instead of insisting  that they continue to starve?  This could also be done with a  fraction of the present military  budget.  H.C.

Last week's winner was Judy  Sim, Box 351, Sechelt, who correctly located the picnic table down  the trail of Brookman Park, Wilson Creek.  Boundary proposals  seen as positive  "Positive suggestions made  by the last two Gibsons' councils have been largely ignored,"  said Gibsons Director John  Burnside commenting on the  continuing dispute over Gibsons  /Area E boundary revisions.  Paraphrasing a response  from Gibsons council to a recent letter from the Area E Electors' Assocation, Burnside continued, "Throughout all of last  year there has been and still is  extended a proposal that is  more conciliatory and more  positive than anything previously suggested."  Gibsons council has proposed  that any unlikely applications  for   inclusion   in   the   village  would be screened by council  who would also be willing to  submit other applications to  Area E for fair consideration.  "It seems that Area E is content with nothing less than a  boundary freeze," said Burnside. "We would then have two  districts in collusion denying  property owners the right to  even apply."  In reply to the Electors'  Association's indication of support for Area E representative,  Jim Gurney, written in their letter to council, Burnside said,  "Gibsons council does not share  the Electors' Association's faith  in the chairman of the SCRD."  Job hot line  With spring just around the  corner, there are a number of  clean-up and fix-it jobs that  need to be done around your  home or business.  Because of the overwhelming  number of unemployed in the  area, there is an abundance of  skilled labour available. As a  result, the Unemployment Action Centre has initiated a  casual "Job Hot Line", to help  co-ordinate the available jobs  with the required skills. The  skills vary from housekeeping  and child care to carpentry,  firewood cutting, painting,  landscaping, etc.  The unemployed need your  support, so please call us at  886-2425 and let us know what  you need done.

Transit for another bus for  the Sunshine Coast.  Statistics compiled by B.C.  Transit show that 'in 1984, the  Sunshine Coast, (population  17,500), Paratransit system provided 13,248 rides at a rate of  6.6 rides per hour, a 40 per cent  increase over the level experienced in 1983.  As a result the net municipal  share (regional district subsidy)  was 12 per cent below the expected budget'.  B.C. Transit subsidies for  1984 amounted to $46,955,  municipal subsidies came to  $18,967 with fare box recovery  amounting to 15.8 per cent.  SCRD Transportation Committee Chairman John Shaske  told the Coast News that he  feels the Coast can support  another minibus. Shaske feels  that if areas like West Sechelt,  Lower Road in Roberts Creek,  Gower Point Road and Langdale to Gibsons were serviced,  two buses could be utilized to  near capacity. Due to a lack of  time the existing bus cannot  provide adequate service to  these areas.  The SCRD will act on a  recommendation   made   at  Thursday's meeting by Director  Jon McRae to vcheck mileage  figures as well as B.C. Transit's  statistics for two other bus communities, before making application.  Comparable figures from  Quesnel, (population 23,500),  which operates two buses show  similar 1984 figures. Quesnel  logged 13,781 rides in 1984 requiring municipal funding to  the tune of $19,773 and B.C.  Transit subsidies amounting to  $60,340; the farebox recovery  was 14.1 per cent.  As Director Vaughan pointed  out to the board, referring to a  paragraph in the letter from  B.C. Transit, "Due to variations in operating environments  care should be taken when comparing one system to another."  Area C Director Jon McRae  in a call for SCRD support for  the ExpOasis Committee, tabled a motion at Thursday's  board meeting to have the  SCRD write a letter of support  for the committee and an offer  to sell Salmon Shark lottery  tickets at the SCRD front desk.  The motion was carried  despite reservations by some  board members that this would  set a precedent whereby other  oganizations might want to request the same privilege.
