Array fft-v.  ��� �����:?x-r-.��*.�����.,->.'rri>����'*4>'::*SS'.*"l34  Diesel spill  causes alarm  by Brad Benson  "It wasn't that big of a deal.  Everything that went down was  recovered," said Chevron Commission Agent, Vern Maedel,  whose * diesel storage tank at  Davis Bay overflowed while being, filled from a tanker barge  last Thursday morning.  The incident was observed by  at least two of the neighbours in  the populous Davis Bay community, which has developed  around ihe storage tanks over  the years. ���  .':. One of the neighbours, Ron  Lwowski said, "I could see the  stuff coming out of the top of  the tank." By the time he got  there, another neighbour had  already run over to the office to  warn Maedel of the overflow.  Both neighbours estifnate the  overflow was occurring for 15  to 20 minutes.  Maedel would not answer  questions regarding the cause of  the accident, the quantity of  fuel that overflowed, or the  nature of safety devices present  to prevent such an overflow. All  questions were referred to  Chevron's Vancouver office  which, at the time of investigating the story, was closed  for the weekend.  The safety issue of fuel  storage tanks centred in  populated areas of the Sunshine  Coast has been a matter of contention for years.  Shell Oil's storage tanks sit in  the heart of lower Gibsons,  behind Molly's Reach and on  Wharf Road in Sechelt. Esso's  storage tanks are in Hopkins  Landing between .two major ���  highways and With residences  close by, and IGC Liquid Gas'  propane storage tanks are at the  creek mouth in Roberts Creek.  Over the years, proposals  have been made to establish a  tartk farm away from populated  areas that would house all the  oil and gas companies' storage  tanks on the Sunshine Coast.  Proposals have included both  Sechelt Indian Baed Land and  the Construction Aggregate's,  site near Port Mellon. v  Negotiations have been  underway for over two years for  the Construction Aggregate's  site, according to Oddvin Vedo,  regional Economic Development Commissioner, whose office is dealing on behalf of the  regional board.  Though not able to comment  in detail on the negotiations, he  did say that they included possible trade-offs for provincial  mineral royalties at other site  locations, which in turn involves,  the provincial government in  the process. He also added that  the Port Mellon site is not the  only one being investigated.  The Davis Bay storage tanks  currently have approximately 13  years remaining On their  foreshore lease, which is controlled by the .provincial  ministry Of lands, parks and  housing. This lease was  renegotiated two years ago and  involved the participation of  Jon McRae, regional board  director for the area.  Chevron's original request  for a 30 years lease renewal was  negotiated down to 15 and instead of the closed off "catwalk", a pier which could be used by the public was agreed to.  According to McRae, the agreement also includes a clause  stating that Chevron will give  every consideration to moving  to a tank farm once one has  been established on the Coast.  : RbhLwdwskTTwhBsgHbnTfeis  across the street from the Davis  Bay storage tanks, would like to  see them leave. Aside from the  critical danger they pose to the  community in case of a serious  accident, he objects to the smell  and the noise of the operation.  Sea Cavalcade's traditional fireworks display drew hundreds of  spectators to the Gibsons harbour area last Friday night. This  Scantech explains  year's event has seen exceptionally balmy weather.  ���Brad Benson photo  Company acts to save fish  "We had 110,000 fish dying  in Cockburn Bay, and if we  hadn't moved them we would  have lost them," said Clark  Hamilton, one of the directors  of Scantech Resources Lihiited,  in a conversation with the Coast  News last week. ?   Hamilton was referring,to a  story'Hjaft'wedcVc^^  . where it was reported that a  licence of occupation had been  issued without the usual processing procedure to enable  Scantech to move these fish to a  site near Wood Bay in Middle-  point.  "It was not our intention to  upset anyone," Hamilton continued, "but we have been  negotiating for some seven to  eight months. This is a joint  venture with a Norwegian company, Undertun S/A, and these  things take time to finalize.  "We tried to tie it iip before  ^ ^hisi buttlie w^ter got too wattti.  up there (on Nelson Island) anil  we had to move the fish," he  explained.  "I must say that the government responded very quickly,  and I can't say enough to express our appreciation,"  Hamilton said.  The site which has access to  the highway will contain living  quarters, and eventually be set  up as a model farm, according  to Hamilton.  "It will be a training centre  where we will teach different  methods of farming, teach  Norwegian technology," Hamilton said. At the moment one  heavy duty pen is in place, and  Hamilton said that there would  be 10 or perhaps 16 in place  when the project is completed.  "We are proceeding  cautiously," he added, "this is a  substantial investment. What  we do depends on how things go  up there."  Tom May, who owns the hatchery at Cockburn Bay on  Nelson Island where the fish  were raised, said that Scantech  had ordered the fish 10 months  ago,, on September 27,, 1984.  :^f^irV^^ise^:^'irn'6reK-ihan'. one  million fish for many farmers  this year," May explained in  conversation with the Coast  News, "and unfortunately  many of the other farmers who  are just starting out had trouble  getting their site ready in time to  take delivery so we had to hold  a lot more fish than we normally would."  As the water warms up the  risk factor gets higher, May  said, stating that usually fish are  moved when the water is at 16  degrees centigrade, but that the  Scantech fish were moved at 22  degrees centigrade.  Both Hamilton and May said  that the fish were not Expo fish,  meaning that they would not be  for use in U-Catch-'Em pens.  Manager of land administration, lands, parks and housing,  Bob Gilmour, in a conversation  with the Coast News, confirmed  that the licence of occupation  had indeed been granted on instructions from the assistant  deputy minister Tom Lee.  The licence of occupation for  the site at which the pens appeared On Sunday, July 14,  1985 was applied for by Clark  Hamilton on July 10, 1985s-  Such a licence normally takes  about four months to process.  The licence which is for about  two hectares of water, has a one.  year tenure after which it  will be reviewed and a permanent lease issued or not as the  ministry sees fit. When asked if  a substantial investment on the  part of the lessor would influence the department's decision, Gilmour said that it  would.  "If they can be shown to  growing salmon there, then .we  would probably grant the  lease," he said. Asked why the  licence of occupation had been  granted so quickly, Gilmour  confirmed that representations  had been made directly to the  ministry, saying that the fish  would die were action not taken  immediately.  Extreme danger  Forest closed down  Members of the Restructuring Committee were present to discuss the pros and cons of the proposed new  Sechelt municipality with residents at the village hall last Saturday. After this series of informal one-on-  Qrie meetings, the committee will get together to decide what steps to take next. The process may result in  a public referendum on the issue. ���Brad Benson photo  SCRD supports  constructive approach  ��� 'We on the Coast have spent  many years growing out of our  petty adolescent distrust of the  |$Mhions ��f others, and to see a  leftpr of this nature published in  of our newspapers casts a  ._. over all our efforts to act as  $��dpmmunity, and particularly  $$&} efforts to develop our com-  flj&hity through our new Com-  ffififiity Development Officer.'  ��y^rea A Director Ian  |fatighan's memo to the Sunshine Coast Regional District  (SCRD) board was in response  to a letter signed by Richard  Tomkies in his role as president  of the Sunshine Coast Tourism  Association (SCTA).  ��� >  . vThe letter,- which appeared in  last week's issue of a local  publication, castigates the  economic strategy produced by  the Solidarity Coalition and the  Joint Labour Council, calling  the��plan a 'classic example of  the'inane leading the needy -  and all the unwary to  perdition'.  The SCRD board, in a  unanimous vote, supported  Vaughan's memo and the motions contained therein, the first  of which calls for the SCRD  board to write to the SCTA,  asking if the opinion expressed  over their name is the opinion  of the Association.  The second motion calls for  the SCRD to clearly indicate  that it in no way supports the  opinion expressed in the letter,  and that the writer of the letter  has no direct connection with  the board, the Economic  Development Commissioner or  the Commissioner.  "Whether one agrees or  disagrees with the report is not  important," said Director John  Burnside, "what is important is  that the report was intended to  be constructive,- and to pour  contempt on an honest attempt  at finding answers is deplorable.  "The SCRD favours a more  constructive approach, and  that's what we are looking for."  Review suspended  The consultants to the Sunshine Coast School District No.  46 have decided to seek additional legal advice before proceeding with their review. It is hoped the situation will be  clarified within a week. The team will return to the Coast on  Tuesday, July 30.  To make an appointment please call the school board at  886-8811, or the B.C. School Trustees' Association at  734-2721.  After six weeks without rain,  the Sunshine Coast has been  assigned the Forest Service's  'Extreme' fire danger classification.  In addition to the requirement that all industrial operations in the forest shut down  completely, the rare measure of  a Full Forest Closure was  declared on July 23, according  to Greg Hemphill, Sechelt  Forest District resource officer-  protection.  This means that all travel and  recreation in the forests are forbidden, including activities such  as hiking, camping, hunting,  fishing, berry picking, timber  cruising, prospecting and  surveying.  The area's two Provincial  campsites are open however,  but are subject to the coast wide  camp fire ban imposed July 11.  Eight minor forest fires have  occurred on the coast this  season with the last at Treat  Creek in Jervis Inlet on July 16.  Though no fires have been  reported for two weeks, the  Forest Service is preparing for  the worst. "We have put extra  effort into prevention and  preparedness" said Hemphill.  "Ground and air patrols are out  every day."  The Forest Service has all its  staff and trained individuals  from the forest industry on  stand-by.   In   addition,   there  have been meetings with the  area's Provincial Emergency  Program (PEP) Coordinator,  Art McPhee, to clarify  measures that would be necessary in case of a major fire.  Forest fires may be reported  by dialing the operator and asking for Zenith-5555, or, to save  time, by calling the Sechelt  Forest District's twenty-four  number directly at 885-5174.  Miss Gibsons, and Sea Cavalcade Queen for 1985 Miss Sunnycrest  Mall, Cindy Skytte, is crowned here by last year's Queen Debbie  Middleton, in the opening ceremonies at Gibsons wharf on Friday  evening. ���Dianne Evans photo Coast News, July 29,1985  Room for debate  The SCRD is to be commended for its stand against  divisive and destructive criticism recently levelled against  the Economic Strategy developed by the Joint Labour  Council and the Solidarity Coalition.  While all the members of the board do not agree with all  the recommendations made in the strategy, nonetheless  they recognise it as an honest and well-researched attempt  at finding answers to the problems which presently beset  our community.  In times of trouble it is important that we stand  together. If we are a democracy, then we must realise that  there is room for disagreement, debate, even argument.  But it should be undertaken with respect for the other's  point of view. Sarcastic rhetoric only serves to irritate and  alienate; a more useful approach would be a constructive  analysis of the strategy- and alternate ideas.  The SCRD board, for all its failings, is trying more than  ever before to truly represent the people who elect it. Cooperation and consultation will bring our community  together and the board's support for just such an approach is gratifying.  Tank farm  needed  A diesel spill at the Davis Bay tanks this past week,  reported elsewhere in these pages, serves to remind us of  the urgency surrounding the search for a tank farm site.  Although the spill was not serious and was successfully  contained, the possibility of a more dangerous accident remains. Since the days when the various oil and gas tanks  on the Sunshine Coast were erected the population has  grown, and frequently most densely in the areas near such  facilities.  Let's put a major effort into finding a new location in a  safer place, and let's do it now.  Dianne Evans  ...from the file�� of the ~  I  5 YEARS AGO  Historic Rockwood Lodge is now the property of the  Sechelt Chamber of Commerce. Homer Glass, president  of the chamber, and Bud Koch, chairman of the  Rockwood Lodge committee, put their signatures on the  final papers in the offices of Eastwood and Co., Friday  afternoon.  Angela Hilstad, Miss Cactus Flower, is crowned Miss  Sea Cavalcade for 1980. Sharing in her victory is second  princess Sherri Young.  10 YEARS AGO  "We are victims of price consipiracy because of our  geographic isolation and if anyone can1 show us ...differently I invite them to do so," said Gibsons president  Joe Kampman, chairman of a newly organized cdnsurner  group. Kampman said his group was specifically con-,  cerned with the cost of gas and groceries.  15 YEARS AGO  The school board starts to move from the B.C. Tel  Block back to the Lang Block.  The regional board's 1,000,000 gallon water reservoir is  about ready for use.  20 YEARS AGO  Robert Lamont recommends that ratepayers meet to  oppose the 75 per cent increase in the water rate recommended by Gibsons council.  Lloyd Burritt, son of Ed and Peggy Burritt of Gower  Point, wins a scholarship to attend Berkshire Music  Festival in Massachusetts.  25 YEARS AGO  With Roberts Creek pound law now in effect, control of  roaming cows becomes mandatory.  I.H.R. Jeffery, school superintendent, advises the  board that a school will soon be necessary in West  Sechelt.  30 YEARS AGO  Canadian Forest Products starts a $25,000 paving job  for thoroughfares in the mill area.  Captain W.A. Kent is postmaster for the new Madeira  Park post office.  35 YEARS AGO  Local fruitgrowers expect to get 20 cents per pound at  the cannery for their strawberries.  Sechelt will get a memorial cenotaph to commemorate  the fallen in two wars.  Cannery superintendent Fred Holland reports 1200  cases of strawberry jam have been shipped to Vancouver.  40 YEARS AGO  Cougars have been killing the sheep of Ed Myers in  Pender Harbour. Seventeen were killed in two nights last  week. The cougars are believed to be a mother and her  kittens.  Two Roberts Creek youths, Ken Green, 18, and Kenneth West, 14, are still reported missing after leaving  their homes in a small boat on July 19.  A new species of seaweed along the coast is regarded  as an act of wartime sabotage by the Japanese boat  owners and commercial fishermen.  The Sunshine  CO-PUBLISHERS  John Burnside M.M.

It was on stilts at the bottom end to give enough height  for the bolts to drop into the cribs which took them down to Vancouver. One of the agreements between Harry Roberts and the  McNair Shingle Company who built the flume, was that, in allowing the company to build the flume over the Roberts' property, the  company would in turn fill in the stilt area with rocks to create a  breakwater. This never did happen although Harry Roberts very  much wanted a breakwater to protect the mouth of the creek so  that logs could be held there and boats would not be damaged. The  flume crossed over the Lower Road which, at that time, was some  seven to eight feet lower than it is today. In this picture it is possible  to see the wharf in the background.

Closer to home, the husband  of Governor General Jeanne  Sauve, has resigned as director  and vice-chairman of the Canadian - South African Society  which is a group almost entirely  financed by the Johannesburg  based South Africa Foundation.  The society opposes federal  trade.; sanctions* and 'also.  ��������� ���/-���������*��� .��� ���:.. .-������.������..   ... -yy  Canada's condemnation of  South Africa's state of  emergency, declared a week  ago.  Recently the Human Sciences  Research Council (HSRC), a  government funded and  Afrikaner-dominated institution, produced a report of its investigation into inter-group  relations.  The report, not surprisingly,  finds that segregation, which  has isolated and divided the  peoples of South Africa, is  responsible for that country's  turmoil. The report stresses the  importance of all groups being  participants in the democratic  process of government.  Most of the major newspapers in South Africa support  the report and recognize that  the recommendations it makes  are the only way that a lasting  and meaningful solution can be  found, but there are still those  who fear for the future.  .Black leaders are afraid to  talk to the government, whites  are afraid of black domination;  upheaval and change are  sources of fear as they are in  every country, and still, 24  million blacks do not have the  vote.  The report, a searing criticism  of apartheid, will be studied by  the Botha government. Those  who wish to see South Africa at  peace will be hoping that the  government doesn't shelve it  along with the other numerous  critical reports it has received.  It is to be hoped that the  Canadian government continues to support the move  towards democratic representation for all the people of South  Africa. It's an important issue;  it wasn't so long ago that blacks  in the United States had no  vote, nor our own native Indians, who still don't have the  right to hold title to their own  lands.  This is a time of sacrifice and  stress in South Africa; let us  hope that the solution will not  exact too great a price.  Restructuring supported  by Graham Craig  I am indebted to you for  publishing in your July 8 issue  an article by James H. Tyner, of  Madeira Park, on the restructuring proposal that has been  placed before the taxpayers and  residents of Sechelt Village and  parts of the adjacent Areas B  and C.  The article contained so  many unwarranted statements  presented as facts that it forced  me, for the first time, to examine my own thinking on a  topic that I was tending to shove  into the background for later.  And I came to the conclusion  that I was most emphatically in  favour of restructuring, or the  amalgamation of the affected  areas into one district  municipality.  ;- I have little confidence in, or  admiration for, the Sunshine  Coast Regional District. First, I  much dislike the "Area" system  of electing SCRD board  members - to me this is a ward  system which promotes the  parochialism that has inhibited  co-operative community growth  in this area for so many years  The area system of voting  dictates that I shall, as an elector, have a say in the election of  only one of the six elected board  members, and that only one will  be answerable to me if I have a  problem involving the SCRD.  Worst of all, to me, is the  restriction of being unable to  speak my voice in the election of  the board's leader - the chairman - who is appointed by the  elected area respresentatives  from among themselves.  In contrast, consider the  voting procedure in Sechelt and  Gibsons. There,' every voter  considers the qualifications of  each nominated candidate and  makes his selection according to  the number of vacancies being  contested.  And in a mayoral election  year, chooses one of the  mayoral candidates as well. The  voter thus exercises the optimum possible effect on the  makeup of the controlling council for his municipality; he may  at any time contact any member  of his council for information  'or assistance, and all members  of the council are responsible to  the electorate at large.  No voter is put off being  referred to his area representative; all councillors deal with  him directly and immediately.  Secondly, I am appalled  When I realize how the SCRD  staff has expanded - ballooned  - over the 14 years in which I  have observed the operation of  i our regional district. In 1971 the  SCRD offices occupied the top  ! floor of the commercial  building at Davis Bay, and the  total staff consisted of approximately seven.  Today those offices are  located in wastefully roomy accomodation at an annual cost to  the taxpayers which is, in a  word, excessive. The number of  staff has now risen to approximately 26 - a more than threefold increase in 14 years!  To be fair about it, the SCRD  has greater responsibility now  than it had then - notably for  the sewer system contained entirely within Sechelt plus some  scattered "development" sewer  systems.  The point to remember is that  during that same period the  number of taxpayer/residents  has increased in nowhere near  the same proportion. I would  guess that in that time the  population served by the SCRD  has increased by no more than  25 to 30 per cent. Some departments, notably the planning and  building inspection services, appear to be overstaffed.  Mr.Tyner's article reflects his  concern with two principal worries attributable to restructuring: the imposition of "more  government" (the words appear  at least six times in his article);  and in his assumption that still  more personal freedoms will be  sacrificed if the voters in the  areas affected opt for restructuring.  His alarm over "more  government" is not understood:  if restructuring is approved the  residents of the areas concerned  will control and be controlled  by only one local government,  as they are now.  Mr. Tyner, jvho to the best of  my knowledge' is neither resident nor taxpayer in any of the  areas affected by the proposal,  will continue to be affected only  by the regional district. This being so, where's the beef?  As to the further loss of our  freedoms, the same reasoning  applies: the resident/taxpayer in  the areas concerned will have  neither more nor less freedoms  than they have now. What they  WILL have is a greater and infinitely more effective control  of the municipal government  that directly concerns them.  I am utterly convinced that  the ward system governing elections inserts many evils into  operation of the regional  district, including factionalism  and voter segregation, a  diminished sense of overall accountability displayed by the  board members, and a loose  control over administrative staff  which leads to the empire  building so characteristic of civil  servant staffs in many forms of  government.  Indeed, according to press  reports, the only voice that is  heard demanding accountability  is that of the Sechelt appointee  to the board, who is neither resident nor taxpayer within the  district! We have indeed lost  freedoms - restructuring will  enable us to recover a few of  them!  There has been much talk  and anxious concern over the  estimated first-year budget for  the proposed new municipality,  and especially over how much  property taxes would go up or  down.  This red herring should not  distract the voter, who should  realize that there will be no  earth-shaking or dramatic  change in either the character of  the community or its basic  economy, nor in its annual rate  of population increase.  Industry is not going to find  conditions vastly improved with  the advent of the new  municipality; the area will continue to attract tourists and people heading for retirement living; commercial enterprises and  services will continue to prosper  according to the amount of cash  flowing, just as it is now.  Nobody is going to go over the  hill to the poorhouse.  The overall costs of maintaining and gradually improving the  amenities of life in the affected  area will remain the same no  matter what form of government deals with them - costs are  costs, and they will neither exp-  pand nor contract simply due to  a change in the FORM of the  administering government.  What WILL happen is that  the affected residents/taxpayers  will maintain a firm control of  their employees, be they elected  or employed. They don't have it  now!  In the next few months persons in the affected areas should  read up on the subject, should  attend and participate in public  meetings, should discuss the  proposal whenever possible,  should ask questions and get  answers.  In particular they should read  the Moore Commission report  and the Campbell report dealing  with the effectiyness of the Sunshine Coast Regional District.  And above all, they should  maintain an open, analytical  mind, calmly judging statements by reason and fact and  unswayed by wild allegations  and provocative, insidious suggestions that cannot be  justified.  Since this may be the last opportunity for us to put our  governmental house in order,  this is a time for clear, unhurried thought unaffected by  demagoguery.  Some of your readers will  recognize me as being presently  an alderman for the village of  Sechelt. This letter is an expression of my opinions on restructuring only as a resident/taxpayer of West Sechelt and has  no connection with my alder-  manic duties.  As to my motives, I hasten to  assure Mr. Tyner that I have no  desire whatsoever to become  mayor of the new municipality.  I intend that my present term of  public office will be my last. mmmmm��~9���w���wuaim  Coast News, July 29,1985  m,__ _m~. >-*--. ��  -&'';#$% ty, 7  *?:*��'.~'~*sis '^~^/^<^<'ty$feTfr~/i^V' - '- ' *���z;6 JWlj^wiFy' y ?";--^;-v-~/%#  _______  tutil-'im  'fiat mh��ut ��its? detsioeratie j&s?��e��ss?  . Editors note: A copy of this letter was received for publication.  Mr Bob Gilmour,  . Manager of Land  Aciministration,  Ministry of Lands,  Parks & Housing.  Dear Sir:  As owners and residents of  waterfront homes on the Sunshine Coast, we are very concerned about a fish farm that  has been planted right in full  view of a residential area at  Middlepoint, just past Wood  Bay.  We understand that this was  done without any of the regular  required procedures, no word to  the regional board, no notices  published in the local papers  and no notification or chance to  protest by the homeowners  directly affected - or postings at  the property.  We understand that an assis-  Insults on Cooper's Green  Editor:  This letter may be of interest  to your readers in the hopes that  steps may be taken to prevent  any re-occurence of the rude,  ugly and irresponsible behaviour by one of your local  residents living directly adjacent  to Coopers Green, which, I  understand, recently became  municipal property.  This Peninsula is one of our  . favorite   holiday   destinations  visited by my family for the past  10 years.  Recently, while my camper  was parked on the roadway at  the green, and my wife and I  were fishing, my two boys, aged  .9 and 11, were approached by a  woman using extremely foul  language, telling them to get the  motor home moved as it was on  private property.  I found it very distrubing that  anyone would use four letter  words to my children. When I  confronted this person I was informed in equally abusive  language that I was on private  property and that the ramp  belonged to her mother.  As well as the verbal abuse,  my small hibachi barbecue was  knocked over, spilling the hot  coals on the beach.  While we were having supper  a local RCMP officer arrived,  asked where the bonfire was  and the kids using drugs and  drinking alchohol.  At this time I realised how  ridiculous this whole situation  had become and that perhaps a  letter to the appropriate sources  Fuller supported  Editor:  As employment has taken me  away from the Gibsons area  and I am no longer accessible to  the people who elected me, I felt  the best thing to do was resign  my position as alderman for the  town of Gibsons.  I have enjoyed the opportunity to serve and as my family  continues to reside here, I'm  sure I will have opportunities to  serve the community in future.  I believe that every candidate  running for the vacancy has  something to offer the community and I wish them well.  However,   one  of  the  cand  idates, Frank Fuller, supports  very closely the views that I hold  on the issues involving our community.  Frank's position on community planning for the benefit  of the residents, his support for  the working people of the area,  his long history of involvement  in the community, and his active participation in the committees working for a lasting peace  in the world, would make his  election on council an asset for  Gibsons. I urge your support of  Frank Fuller on August 10.  Ron Neilson  Gibsons  For the record  Editor:  The Sea Cavalcade supplement, which appeared with the  July 23 issue of the Press, had  neither the blessings of, nor any  financial support from, the Gibsons & District Chamber of  Commerce.  This letter is for publication,  as we wish to be certain that our  members, prospective members,  and the general public, be accurately informed.  Since the Coast News, in a  spirit of co-operation, cancelled  plans to publish a special supplement,' at the request of the  Sea Cavalcade Committee, it is  unlikely that we would have endorsed any other publication.  Thank you for allowing us to  clear this up.  Verna Sim, Manager,  Sheila Kitson, President,  Gibsons & District  Chamber of Commerce.  Minimal delays  Editor:  This letter is in response to all  the complaints that have been  aired lately against the  'Beachcombers' filming interruptions.  I have never been delayed  more than two minutes at any  time. It appears to me, that the  filming crews keep traffic interruptions to a minimum.  I suggest that the benefit of  tourist interest, and the money  that the show attracts to the  community, far outweigh any  inconveniences that are experienced by local residents and  shopkeepers.  It seems that some locals, on  one hand, are doing everything  in their power to block a move  by B.C.

Bruce Smith  Gibsons  Corrections made  Editor:  Re:  The photograph in your  paper of July 22.  I would like to make a few  corrections.  It states, the Standard  Building is at the corner of  Pender and Howe. The Standard Building is on the corner  of Hastings and Richards. The  Hall Building stands on the corner of Howe and Pender.  The CPR would never have  changed the name of the Empress of Japan to Ireland, as she  was in collision with another  ship in the St. Lawrence with a  terrible loss of life.  The Winch Building was  never owned by Ernie Winch. It  was built by R.V. Winch, a very  wealthy cannery operator at the  time.  The vessel he refers to as one  of the Empress's I doubt; it has  a black hull, and it looks as if  there are only two funnels.  Ther only time the hulls of  the Empress of Asia and Russia  were black was at the end of the  first war.  I came back from overseas on  the former Empress of Japan  and if I remember right she was  the Canada. The first Empress  of Canada had been torpedoed  early in the war off South  Africa.  W.G. Dolmage  Halfmoon Bay  Freedom of speech  Editor:  It was not until I read your  article of July 8 regarding creationism, that I fully realized the  extent of freedom of speech we  have in this country. To date, I  have yet to read so blatant an  attack on our Christian  heritage, on which this country  was founded.  As a former student and  future resident'of your community, I am appalled to hear  of the lack of support given Pat  Muryn by the school board.  With moral decadence and  ethical compromise now so evi  dent, it is time to turn from  man's derision to God's provision.  Creation is not a myth or  legend, Mr Burnside.  To equate a living, risen  Saviour with the dead bones of  false gods, is blasphemy.  II Corinthians 1:18 states,  "For the preaching of the cross  is to them that perish,  foolishness, but unto us that are  saved it is the power of God."  "The fool has said in his heart,  'there is no God'." Psalm 14:1.  Wise men still seek Him.  Alanah Van Schetsen  would be in order.  I would also like to point out  that, regardless of what happened to us, we will continue to be  great fans of your beautiful area  but sincerely hope that other  tourists will not be subjected to  similar encounters.

SIGNS IN SECHELT  From Sechelt village comes  the information that merchants  there can get permits for sandwich board advertisements on  the sidewalks on condition, for  one thing, that they take out  liability insurance.  "The sandwich boards add a  little summery addition to  Sechelt village," said an  observer.  STREET CAR STORY  Les Peterson tells this anecdote of the old street car days in  Vancouver. The visitor from  Southampton who recently  came to see some places of his  childhood said that an aunt had  given him a wallet she had  found that came out of the  family's Vancouver days.  Tucked away in an unused  corner of the wallet was a  child's paper ticket for the B.C.  Electric Railway in 1926.  "Those tickets were four for  25 cents. Despite the agitation  the public never did get the price  down to a nickel," said Les.  "Some enterprising youths,  however, found the ticket could  be split to show two printed  faces. Then the user hoped the  half-ticket landed print side up  in the box to deceive the eagle-  eyed conductor."  Thursday, August 1  7 p.m.  1.

"We are very interested in  participating in whatever way  we can," said Mayor Larry  Labonte at the July 24 Gibsons  Planning Committee meeting at  which Community Development Officer, Irene Lugsdin,  appeared to address the council.  -���-��� "A community development  . cannot take place in isolation,"  Lugsdin said, adding that she  would be.assembling a very  comprehensive information  library to be used as a resource  by the community.  Alderman Norm Peterson  pointed out that the Partners in  Enterprise agreement recently  signed with the provincial  government emphasizes the  private sector involvement, and  Alderman John Burnside expressed his dissatisfaction with  the amount of time spent by the  Economic Development Com  missioner on the more southerly  end of the Sunshine Coast.  In particular the absence of a  concerted effort towards a tank  farm was noted.  "At the present time it's  worse than before," said the  mayor, "nowadays there is no  one on the wharf when the  tanker comes in, and., gasoline  tanks are still in dangerous  places."  Lugsdin went on to say that a  lot of projects designed for the  tourist have not been coordinated with,each other.  "I'll be attending planning  meetings regularly to facilitate  these energies coming together  with a minimum of confusion,"  she said.  "Let's try to use our own  skills to create the kind of  dynamic economy that we  need," Burnside added.

Among those present were  her sister Dorothy' Denham, a  neice Barbara Hutchinson and a  neice-in-law Dorothy Bancroft,  both from Rocky Mountain  House, Alberta, and former  Gibsons resident Stan Truman  who now lives in Victoria.  Mayor and Mrs. Labonte  brought official good wishes as  did regional board chairman  Jim. Gurney, who presented  Mrs. Clarkson with a bouquet.  Reverend John Paetkau gave  the toast to the guest of honour  and Muriel Haynes read letters  from Lieutenant Governor  Rogers,    Prime    Minister  Mulroney, Premier Bennett,  Leader of the Opposition John  Turner, Leader of the NDP Ed  Broadbent, MP Ray Skelly and  MLA Don Lockstead and from  Gibsons council.  A telegram from the Queen  had been received earlier.  Fitting such a special occasion there were three birthday  cakes, the cherry cake requested  by Mrs. Clarkson and cakes  from her present and former  home-makers, most of whom  were present.  The youngest guest, 9-month  old Lara Matiation, won't  remember the occasion, but  there is little doubt that her  6-year old sister Genevieve will;  it's not every day one attends a  party for someone who has lived for 100 years, especially one  as delightful and charming as  Clarice.  Guides honoured  Three young ladies from Gibsons were among 33 Pathfinders  from Lions Area, Girl Guides  of Canada, who received their  Canada Cord on June 23 in a  beautiful ceremony at St. Francis in the Wood Church, West  Vancouver.  Debbie William, Patsy  Sheldon and Pam Clack, now  proudly wear the red and white  cord, which marks the completion of several years of work.  The Canada ��� Cord is the  highest award that a Pathfinder  may earn, and involves over 150  different challenges in the  home, community, outdoor,  world and camping pathway, as  well as many hours of service to  their community.  Their parents, Guiders and  friends can be justly proud of  them.  Guest speaker at the  ceremony was Miss Mary  Pellatt of Sechelt, whose  association with the Girl Guides  goes back to the early days. Her  aunt, Lady Pellatt, of Toronto,  was the first Chief Commissioner for Canada, and Mary  was a Guide at one of the first  national events, a camp held in  Victoria in 1927.  Mary is still active in the Panther Division Trefoil Guild. She  has shared her photographs and  memories of those early days  with the Pathfinders and Guides  here on the Sunshine Coast.  Granthams wharf  gets new board  The Granthams Landing  Wharf Association met on  Thursday last to elect a new executive and to discuss the potential for rejuvenating their  wharf.  "There are many options - we  want your input, your ideas,"  said chairman Dana Sheehan in  her opening remarks to the 30  residents assembled at" Granthams Hall.  The wharf, long a favoured  swimming and diving facility  for local children as well as  v eekend visitors, is almost  t nuseable. The heavy log floats  .re in storage and need repair;  he wharf h is "chain, wire  rope, nails sir .king out - it's unsafe", according to one resident.  Much discussion took place  as to priorities but most agreec  that "a wharf is necessary''.  The lease, a subject of negotij-  tions for some months has new  been settled.  Bill Chinnick, retiring president of the Association handed  over the operation of the wnarf  to the new board which consists  of Dana Sheehan, Ken Michael,  Sandy Wrightman, and Debbie  Wilson.  A membership meeting is  scheduled for Thursday, August  1, and anyone with ideas,  energy or money to contribute is  encouraged to attend.  #  N.B. Members will be pleased  to learn that the floats were put  in place on Sunday.  Salvagers upset  "Cutti ig firewood on the  beach is ine as long as the good  logs arc not touched," said Rod  Mallin'on, of the Gulf Log  Salva-^ Co-operative Association /hen talking to the Coast  Nev . last week.  ' rhere  is  a procedure  to  fc ow," Mallinson explained,  s: ying that there were com-  r-iaints being made by salvagers  ; about   residents   cutting   high  .grade timber on local beaches  for use as firewood.  The procedure involves call  ing an inspector, located at Gulf  Log Salvage in Port Mellon at  884-5311. If that number is impossible to reach then a call to  684-8561 will produce results,  said Mallinson.  The inspector, who travels  almost daily past most of the  beaches from Port Mellon to  Sechelt, will then visit the site  and examine the lot to see  whether it is salvageable or not.  Those who ignore the procedure and are apprehended  cutting such logs are liable to  prosecution, Mallinson added.

First of the Season - Okanagan  peaches  lb.  kg  1.04  Australian  mandarin oranges  lb. b Coast News, July 29,1985  FRANK FULLER  "The main priority is the  question of employment," said  Frank Fuller in an interview  with the Coast News, after announcing his candidacy in the  upcoming Gibsons election.  "I've lived here for a long  time, and know the community  very well," Fuller continued,  "and I want to do all I can to  get people back to work."  Fuller sees the two main  causes of loss of jobs in the Gibsons area to be the deep cuts in  public spending by the provincial government, and the forest  crisis which has come about  through the production strategies of the major forest companies.  "Those who log our hills control our destiny," he continued.  "Even a small council should  see that and seek to take advantage of it."  The move to automation,  particularly in. the forest industry, means that there are  fewer jobs, Fuller said, and he  does not believe that high tech is  a panacea to cure economic ills.  Gibsons "national charisma"  is seen by Fuller as a definite  asset.  "We have the Beachcombers,  but I don't think we are utilizing  it enough," he said. "The move  to set up a permanent theatre in  Gibsons is positive; we need  even more revitalization to attract the tourist and to make life  better for those who live here.  And above all, people have to  . work.  "Councils in the past have  looked inward too much. Gibsons really is the 'pearl of the  whole Coast' and we should  emphasize that."  External pressures are a major influence, Fuller went on to  say, and he believes that the  council, along with the other  elected representatives on the  Coast should take action to influence and bring pressure to  bear on those who have the  power to change policies which  are harmful to our community.  Particularly Fuller sees that  council can urge the regional  board to initiate major employment programs; for example, a  forest survival strategy similar  to that developed by the Vancouver Island mayors.  He also sees that council must  pressure the provincial government to bring about the ferry  by-pass road, and to add an extension to St. Mary's Hospital  in the near future.     ?  Please turn to page 10  JOHN REYNOLDS  "I'm very concerrned about  the per capita debt load of the  town," said John Reynolds,  speaking to the Coast News  after announcing his candidacy  in the Gibsons aldermanic race.  "A high percentage of our  taxes goes towards debt servicing," he continued, "and I  think we should spend less until  our loans are paid off. We have  to be careful about how we  manage our debts."  Reynolds, who ran in the last  Gibsons election, went on to say  that he has been learning a lot  about the town since then.  "I try to catch every council  meeting in person, or have an  alternate there to take notes,"  he said. "I think I could have  appropriate input; I feel I'd bring a fresh approach to the  council."  Reynolds sees the Downtown  Revitalization Plan as a positive  move by the town to improve its  image.  "The marina and the  Beachcombers are good attractions," Reynolds said, "it's  necessary to promote the town,  to make it look good, to raise its  image.  "We've made a good start,  but we have to keep it going."  Reynolds, who has been  under contract to the Sunshine  Coast Employment Development Society to supervise the  recently held aquaculture  course, has a basic background  in formatting, especially for the  new Gibsons Community Plan.  As well, he and his partner,  Fred Mason, volunteered their  expertise and time to complete  the new Gibsons zoning maps  for the municipality.  "This really taught me a lot  about the town," he said. "Pm  a strong believer in volunteer  services. A lot of people in the  town would be willing to  volunteer their expertise if they  had direction."  Something Reynolds sees as a  potential problem for the town  is the division between upper  and lower Gibsons.  "The division is  unfortunate," he said, "it  doesn't have to be there. There  are geographic differences, but  they can be worked on. It would  increase the value of the whole  town if it could show itself to be  an integrated unit.  "Transportation between the  two levels is the first priority,"  Reynolds  continued.   "Maybe  cable cars would be a good way  Please turn to page 10  BOB MAXWELL  "I am a firm believer in  orderly planning," said Bob  Maxwell in an interview with  the Coast News, shortly after  announcing his candidacy in the  upcoming Gibsons election.  "Planning is my baby, that's  where my background is,"  Maxwell continued, "and I do  have a diploma in municipal administration."  Maxwell sees restraint as applying to all.  "We must look at our  expenditures in relation to income. The town does have control over income," he said. "As  well, I'm worried about the  small businessman especially in  lower Gibsons. We need more  input in this regard; 1 am very  concerned about their problems."  The large number of retired  people in the community, 27 per  cent, are a concern to Maxwell  as well.  "A committee she aid be  established to look intc housing  and the retirement industry," he  explained. "It is one of our major industries.'I woul J not want  to see lots of seniors' homes but  more active retirees, living independently.  "Many retirees spend their  active years here   but leave ;a.<  they grow older Those peopl  should be given a lot of our sur -  port and help.'' '���  The congestion in the lower  area of Gibsons concerns Maxwell who sees a shortcoming in  the concentration of activities  around the retail industry.    "'  "I would like to see some  small industry located here," he  said, "but that depends on the  expertise of local labour and on  marketing."  The lack of serious development in the lower areas of the  Sunshine Coast is also of concern to Maxwell.  "There has been so much emphasis on mariculture," he said,  "but what about down here?  There has to be some more  orderly development in this  area.  "The character of the lower  village is what attracted me herein the first place, some eight  years ago," Maxwell explained.  "It's a sort of fishing village im-/  age, and very attractive. It at-',  tracts tourist trade, and we need,  more service industries in the  lower town to cope with that."  Maxwell    was    born    in  Calgary, and received his educa-.  tion in B.C. and Alberta. He  Please turn to page 1.0; Coast News, July 29,1985  7.  WS&iWli��M^W^MMMM:  by Peggy Connor  The Department of Fisheries and Oceans was an active participant  in this year's Sea Cavalcade festivities. The DFO is an important  part of our community up and down the Sunshine Coast; their interesting and informative displays made the public more aware of  the valuable work of the department. ���Dianne Evans photo  Help makes  Fair a success  by Peggy Connor  The Country Fair of Halfmoon Bay started off this year  with a car rally on the Friday  night, July 19.  In charge and doing magnificent jobs were Midge Nanson  and Liz Wright. Fifteen participants enjoyed the event.  It was deemed too hot  weatherwise to run the three  and a half mile race but three  brave souls did take part.  Halfmoon Bay Recreation  started off the afternoon with  their wheeled parade then chairman Peggy Connor declared the  fair open and everyone was  ready for business and fun.  Halfmoon Bay Recreation  carried on with races for the  kids; their chairman, Steve  Feenstra, who was also in  charge of the run, put some  adults through an exciting egg  toss where more than one person had egg on their faces, legs,  arms, etc.  Halfmoon Bay school headed  by Janet Amberg provided fun  games for children, and helium  balloons.  The famous Smile Contest  measurer this year was a very  active committee member,  Carol Kozij, who took the  width of 27 smiles.  Alma Gladstone and Peggy  Ayer had good response from  the fast knitters in the knitting  contest. Alison Steele aided by  Faye Hansen was ready with the  baking contest for judge Lenore  Rudland.  Another new addition to this  year's fair was the new logo  designed by Ann Tarnowski put  onto T-shirts; good sales were  recorded but there are still some  left especially in the children's  sizes.  The Beer Garden was a  popular spot in under the trees,  about the coolest area at Connor Park. Al West and Chuck  Ayer served the bubbly and  Fiona West and helpers sold  tickets. Bunty Pinkerton was  busy selling the raffle tickets  that do help the committee to  raise funds for the park.  Welcome Beach Community  Association provided the ever  popular bingo games, under  direction of their president Wilf  Vorley.  Booths were built this year by  Andrew Steele and Warren  James, using a modular design  that is expandable; helping with  the design was Ronald Seal.  These added a more carnival  aspect to the fair and also provided a place to hang some  shelter for the sellers.  Import this year was the  clown, Muddles Collins, ,who  thrilled the children and  delighted them as he gave out  the free ice cream courtesy of  Dairyland.  A foretaste of next year's  competition was the display  booth   of   local   crafts,   with  treasurer Barbara James roasting in the hot sun doing her job  as banker and answering questions regarding proceedings.  Stephen Hubert, singer, contributed his talent as his part in  this community effort and really delighted the crowd, singing  his own compositions.  Appreciation of the committee is extended to all those who  helped make this another great  day in Halfmoon Bay, especially to B.C. Hydro for putting up  the banner, Sunshine Coast  Disposal for providing, gratis, a  garbage container, Sechelt  village for the loan of their  public announcement system,  the news media of all kinds that  gave us good coverage; also to  the donations received from  committee members and  Carolyn Catering, Woodward's  store via Fin Anthony, Cornel  Sawmill, Frank Jorgensen,"  Ronnie's Headquarters, and  Milore Nursery.  This was a real fun day with  lots of help from the community. The committee is comprised  of promotion manager Carol  Kozij, secretary Diane.Foley,  treasurer Barbara James, Andrew and Alison Steele, Fiona  West, Bunty Pinkerton, George  Nelson, Midge Nanson and  chairman Peggy Connor.

Sechelt Seniors  by Robert Foxall  1 must apoplogize for missing  the deadline last week and failing to give the members a very  important message regarding  our annual picnic. Let's blame  the heat. I was trying to stay in  the shade.  Here it is, to confirm the information that may have been  given to you by the Telephone  committee.  The annual summer picnic of  Branch #69 will be held August  15 at Porpoise Bay campsite  starting at 11 a.m. If you require transportation be at our  Hall by 10:30 a.m. Bring your  goodies, also your own plates,  cups and cutlery. We trust we  will see you all there.  In the unlikely event of rain  we can have our picnic in the  hall. That happened once  before within this writer's  memory. (We had a jolly good  time).  If further information is required call Charlie Stephens a'  885-2381.  At the regular monthly  meeting authorization to purchase a new coffee urn vas  given. It probably will be  christened at the picnic. Wiile  there was no definite rews  about grants it was decided to  dispose of the timber on (ha lot,  clean it up and erect a sign indicating it was where the new  Seniors' Hall would be erected.  It was reported that Branch  #69 was now the largest group  in the province. We must be doing something right.  I gather that all enjoyed the  trip to Mission and the latest  news from our travel chairman  indicates that there will be a bus  going to Expo in September.  More about that when the date  is decided.  In the meantime stay on the  shady side of the street and keep  cool.  Truckload Sale  Gibsons 886-8141  GIBSONS  Sechelt 885-7121  BUILDING SUPPLIES!

Victoria  meeting  hopes  A meeting called in Victoria  on July 2 by the ministry of  agriculture and involving  representatives from the  ministries of industry and small  business, tourism and international trade was attended by  Economic Development Commissioner Oddvin Vedo arid  Sunshine Coast Tourism  Association president Richard  Tomkies.  The pu-pose of the meeting-  was to discuss a proposal to  stage a world aquaculture  showcase on the Sunshine Coast  during Expo 86, and Tomkies  was enthusiastic about the outcome.  "I think we've finally got  through to them what it is we  are proposing," he reported in a  conversation with the Coast  News.  The showcase proposal was  originated by the Tourism  Association as an Expo-related  economic/employment development project with significant  tourism benefits for the community.  It involves an international  aqua-trade show designed to  dramatically expand aquaculture investment on the B.C.  coast and to establish the Sunshine Coast as the centre of the  new industry.  Included is provision for  250,000 farm reared coho  salmon in a number of  U-Catch-'em pens for a planned  1000 visitors a day to catch during Expo 86.  As a result of the meeting a  recommendation has been submitted to the economic development committee of cabinet endorsing the proposal and calling  for funds to be allocated and a  person appointed to pull the  showcase together, according to  Tomkies.  A new element to come out  of the meeting was a suggestion  from Jim Fralic of the  agriculture ministry. In an effort to impprove market acceptance of farm-raised fish products he feels the showcase  should include opportunities for  visitors to eat the fish they  catch, and other products.  Several corporate sponsors  have expressed interest in the  showcase, subject to a degree of  government involvement in the  management of the project. It is  hoped that funding will be forthcoming from such sponsors;  the showcase will generate  revenue to repay all interim  funds and is predicted to yield  considerable profit, said  Tomkies.  ���V1.ha-i.-vi l i li*. - .in I'syra  Quote of the Week "  1 "Prejudice, whether religious, racial, f  , patriotic, or political are destructive '  t to the foundations of human ���  ' development."  *     -Baha'u'llah.  _  %L_M<t.11.m.-iL^_nvi^  by Ruth Forrester 885-2418  WINNERS ALL  There were lots of winners at  the Halfmoon Bay Country  Fair last Saturday, where  everyone enjoyed a most pleasant, if a bit hot, afternoon of  fun and games.  The  opening  event,   which  was the Friday night car rally,  ended in a tie between the crew  of Ian McConnell, Jay Turner,  and Jay Van Diessen, and that  of Mary and Margaret Connor.  The kids' fishing derby on  Saturday morning was a great  success with some 45 children  competing. Trophy for the biggest fish went to Jesse Satow of  Welcome    Woods;    Cody  MacLeod won a rod and reel  for the lightest fish. These were  in   the   three   to   six   years  category.  The seven to 12 year old winners were Johnnie Reid from  West Germany, with the biggest  fish, and David Watson of  Kelowna, with the lightest.  The most unusual catch was a  rusty oil drum lid, and Sandy  Inglis of North Vancouver got  first prize for this, while James  Kirby of Deep Cove got the  largest crab. A special thank  you goes out to George and  Maxine, of the Halfmoon Bay  store, who organized this event  and donated all the refreshments and prizes.  Barry Evans of Gibsons, was  the winner of the three and a  half mile race, and Sharyl  Mathew of Halfmoon Bay,  took the ladies' trophy.  In the baking contest, Fiona  West had the winning chocolate  cake, with second place winner  Diane Foley. Alice Halford won  the white cake contest, and  Maxine McNeil made the winning pie.  Volley ball winners were the  Carol Kozij team, and the biggest smile winner, was Jim  Brown in the adult section and  Logan Taylor in the children's  section.  Fastest knitter was Mary  Watson with runner up Maria  Mahar.  Raffle winners were: Ken  Bennet, Mel Schaler, Dilys  Anderson,_ Carol Kozij,. M.  Johnston, Marg Nygard, Dr.  -<?Rpd English* Mary Ewan, Connie Smart, Jim Blair, Anne Mc-  Colland Val Ladner.  Also to be commended, is the  hard working committee who  put the whole fair together, and  make such a success each year.  Elva Dinn of Redrooffs who  is the organizer of fund raising  for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation , held a special raffle at the  fair, and the prize winners were  Jodi Riddell, Nicole Burnett,  and Julie Hyatt. Over a thousand dollars have been raised in  this area recently for the Foundation, and Elva wishes to pass  along her grateful thanks to all  who gave their support.  A very busy and popular lady  at the Fair was Eva Lyons who  sat for hours in the blazing heat  to read teacups for the Hospital  Auxiliary. Next year's Halfmoon Bay Country Fair will  probably be a two day affair,  and will be held at Cooper's  Green, now that it is our own  park. This will be a very  popular decision, recently made  by the Fair committee, and will  allow for the addition of swimming events and fun for the little ones who visit the fair.  Connor Park will still serve  its function for field games and  other activities and we are making headway in the area, when  we find ourselves with a couDle  of places which can be shared,  and enjoyed by all.  We have yet another winner  in the Halfmoon Bay area in the  person of Ron Mack of Redrooffs, who won second prize in  the Wakefield Inn fishing derby  last week. Ron was in a boat  skippered by Peter Wallace  when he won a Little Chief  Smoker. Well done, Ron!

She has lived  other places, but came back to  the Harbour to settle down for a  while.  Whenever there is work to be  done, this lady is right there,  never in the spotlight, but quietly carrying on. Whatever the  job, she can do it���or she'll  learn.  She is a charter member of  the Lioness Club, active in the  hospital auxiliary and the  Garden Bay HELP Club.  She produces an incredible  number of handicraft items,  many of which find their way to  the Elves, community club  bazaar or other good causes.  Her bread is really good, too.  As my secretary for the Girl  Guides, she is always quick to  do any jobs that need doing,  always with a smile and a cheerful word. Nena Whittaker,  don't blush: it's all true!  For all the good things that  you do, and for the super person you are, we salute you,  Nena!  LEGION BBQ  It's too hot to cook, and we  all need a break from the kitchen.

New zones proposed  "The by-law is deficient and  we should deal with it," said  Area A Director Ian Vaughan,  addressing the Sunshine Coast  Regional District (SCRD) board  on July 25.  To achieve this, Vaughan  proposes three new zones to be  added onto Bylaw 264 and also  Bylaw 96 within Area A, to  specifically deal with  aquaculture.  "Hopefully these zones will  clarify land use for surrounding  properties too," said Vaughan  who cited two recent problems  arising out of conflicting land  use, where a company involved  in the aquaculture industry had  sc: up operations on land adjacent to residentially zoned land.  The zones would be as  iollows:  1. Basic farm, no bulk feed  handling facil'ties, no hatchery  or land bas'-d facilities other  than storage and residential.  2. Basic   farm,   labs,   bulk  feed storage, processing plant  for own use, on marine facility,  land use residential.  3. Basic farm with land based hatchery, bulk feed handling  and storage, processing for own  use, labs, storage and residential, may include direct sales to  public.  The inclusion of an Industrial  zone specifically for processing  and feed-handling for hire or  contract is also recommended.  Were these zones to be fitted  into Bylaw 96 the R-3 problem  could be solved, according to  Vaiighan's proposal, by  disallowing aquaculture in the  A-4, R-3 and R-4 zones.  The board has instructed  SCRD staff to draw up the bylaw.  Birthday  The Sunshine Coast Arts  Centre celebrates its sixth birthday on Saturday, August 3 with  its annual birthday cocktail party.

Waterworks meet  by Jo Benjafield  There was a very large turnout on Monday, July 22, when  the Garden Bay Waterworks  District held an extraordinary  general meeting at the Garden  Bay Firehall to discuss undertaking major improvements to  the water system. The meeting  was called to try and solve the  problems of some residents who  have poor pressure and sometimes no water.  The chairman, Mr. Doug  Fielding, opened the meeting by  briefly describing the history  and growth of the district,  which had over the years taken  in the School Bay Waterworks  District, the Whittaker system  and the Pender Lakes area,  resulting in having to cope with  running a system comprised of  four different entities of varying  ages designed by different  engineers.  The trustees had consulted  Web Engineering Ltd. with a  view to presenting several alternatives to the property owners.  These options ranged from one  costing approximately $70,000  to the major one estimated at  $244,500, which would give  good pressure, assured supply  and optimum fire protection to  the whole district.  One hundred and four property  owners   were  present  or;-  represented  by  written  proxy  and they voted 76 in favour of '  the major project, 16 for the  secondary development  estimated at $178,000, nine for  the third development, one to  leave the matter to the trustees'  discretion, and two to hand the  system over to the Sunshine  Coast Regional District.  Various methods of financing  the different options were  presented by treasurer Jo Benjafield. Even with increased  rates to cover the cost of the  major development, the amount  paid annually by users in the  Garden Bay Waterworks  District would still be very close  to that paid by regional district  users.  Votes of thanks were moved  to the trustees and the secretary-  treasurer for all they had done  for the district in the past.  Astronomy  show  Mr. Bill Burnyeat from  Southam Observatory will be  presenting a free evening program at Porpoise Bay Provincial Park on Thursday, August  1 at 9 p.m.  Following the slide show at  the amphitheatre, the public is  invited to join in the viewing of  the night sky.

Frank Fuller  Continued from page 6  "We have to do planning for  the senior population too,"  Fuller continued. "The senior  population is growing - it's 27  per cent now - and we'll need  more low-cost, community  owned and operated housing as  well as recreational facilities for  the older people.  "Another good resource in  Gibsons is the museum," he  said, "with help it can sponsor  all kinds of programs, even to  collect an oral history of this  area - not just the place but  peoples'  lives. There's a rich  history hidden in this cbmmuni-  ty.  "We have to have imagination to take advantage of the  things we have."  Fuller is retired and has had  much experience in education,  labour organization, and in the  workforce. As well, he has been  active in the peace movement  since its inception shortly after  the end of World War II.  He has lived on the Sunshine  Coast for 18 years with his wife,  Doris, and has four children,  two of whom graduated from  Elphinstone.  John Reynolds  Continued from page 6  to go - School Road is going to  have to be torn up anyway for  repairs. Expo 86 is a transportation fair, and this would be a  good place to start.  "This could change the look  of the town," he said, pointing  out that retirees would find it  more attractive with a good  transportation system.  Planning and preparation are  major considerations for  Reynolds;   "We   have   to   be  ready when building starts to increase."  A member of the Medieval  Society, Reynolds is also a  delegate to the West Howe  Sound Recreation Commission  and a member of the Gibsons  Volunteer Fire Department. He  has recently married and has lived in Gibsons for more than  four years. He is self employed,,  being half owner of Tangen*  Enterprises, and owner of A-l  Divers Limited  Bob Maxwell  Continued from page 6  has held various advancing  positions in Canadian Westing-  house, eventually becoming  district manager for southern  Alberta.  He has won much recognition in his technological field including the chairmanship of  Technical and Standards Committee of the Canadian Electrical Association to help in  troduce the idea of energy conservation into our home life.  A member of the Gibsons  Electors' Association, Maxwell  explained that the association  does no nominating and does  not make any policy statements.  Through his membership of the  association he has been able to  read all the minutes and warrants of recent council business,  a valuable source of information for him in his candidacy.

Coast News, July 29,1985  "Straights II" a screenprint by Stuart McKenzie is one of the works  by local artists in the Coast Summer Show at the Arts Centre,  Sechelt, until August 13. ���Brad Benson photo  At the Arts Centre  Summer show  The Coast Summer Show at  the Arts Centre, Sechelt shows  paintings, prints and sculptures  by some of the many fine artists  living on the Sunshine Coast.  Jim Krieger and Axel Stenzel  represent the sculptors with Axel showing a splendid goose  made out of scrap metal and  Jim Krieger two of his very interesting abstract steel  sculptures.  There is also a display of nine  of Muriel Parfitt's ceramic  sculptures. All except one of  these pieces are handbuilt in  porcelain clay, burnished by  hand and sawdust fired. Their  elegant, simple shapes and  restrained colour - blacks and  greys, terra-cotta and off  whites, make for a superb combination. It is easy to see why  Muriel Parfitt has won many  awards for her work.  Among the many prints on  view are some small abstract  collographs by Peter Braune,  some delightful landscapes by  Greta Guzek, Joan Warn and  Cindy Buis and three, hitherto  unseen, linocuts by that always  exciting artist, Maurice Spira.  Specially featured amongst  the prints is a small exhibition  of Stuart McKenzie's screen-  prints showing three from his  "Billiards" series and several  from his last exhibition - a good  opportunity to see these again  as they are well worth a second,  third and fourth look.  The paintings range in style  from the gentle watercolours of  Don Hopkins and Andy Towert  to the richly textured abstract of  Trudy Small and the confident  splash of colour by David  Burns.  Further contrast can be  found in the "Old Master" -  like still life by David Burggraf  and Pat Chamberlin's swirling  abstract of "Herring Egg on Eel  Grass".  Susan Wolpert is represented  by one of her impeccably  designed and Executed paper  cutouts, this one'of a stormy  autumn day, and Marilyn  Rutledge by two of her charming coloured pencil drawings,  these ones being of boats.  There is also a special display  of exciting ceramic jewellery by  Mary Glenn Hodgson and  Muriel Parfitt and some more  traditional and delicate pieces in  gold, silver and precious stones  by Linda LeBlanc. Four hand  painted silk scarves in blues and  greens by Jo Forrest complete  this display.  This exhibition continues at  the Arts Centre until August 13.  Opening hours at the Arts Centre until August 31 are Monday  to Saturday 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.,  Sundays 1 to 4 p.m.  $! <|�� A__ ����   W   TBt   _?_7%mm_m.

For your entertainment  Casual Brothers  Monday thru Saturday  by Peter Trower  The next few years brought a  number of changes in Purdy's  life. He moved to Ameliasburgh  near Belleville, Ontario, and  built the A-frame where he and  Eurithe still live. He was helped  in this endeavour by fellow poet  and former carpenter, Milton  Acorn. Purdy describes this  sometimes rocky relationship in  his introduction to Acorn's  selected poems, I've Tasted My  Blood.  Purdy and Acorn had much  in common. Both were self-  educated school dropouts. Both  were natural poets of tremendous talent. Both were still  evolving. Beyond doubt, the  friendship was mutually  beneficial. In a literary world  almost exclusively dominated  by academic writers, Purdy and  Acorn were roughshod kindred  souls - two of a kind.  Purdy continued to publish  slim volumes of verse with the  small presses. Emu Remember  appeared in 1956; The Craft So  Long To Lerne in 1959. The  continuing improvement in his  work was obvious. By the time  the latter book was published,  Purdy had all but abandoned  the structures of traditional  form, for a much looser style,  employing the rhythms of  natural speech. The stiffness  was gone.  In 1962, Contact Press  published Purdy's first full-  length collection, Poems For  AH The Annettes. It was obvious that he had learned the  hard craft at last. Purdy's  familiar, sprawling, open-ended  style is displayed here for the  first time. The often surprising  poems crackle with energy,  good humour and humanity.  The book was well-reviewed  and brought Purdy considerable  acclaim, but the big breakthrough was still to come.  Purdy  published  one  more  small press book, The Blur In  Between,   the  following  year.  Then   in   1965,  The  Cariboo  Horses    appeared.    It   was  Purdy's first book with a major  publisher   (McClelland   <&  Stewart), and it did the trick fory  him, blowing away'the ;eritics7l$  and winning him a huge legion^y  of fans. Purdy was subsequently written ap in Time Magazine  and The Cariboo Horses went  on    to   win   the   Governor  General's Award.  The Award was well deserved. Cariboo Horses is vintage  Purdy and contains some of his  best poems. After thirty years  of struggling, here is the poet in  full flight at last.The title poem  is one of Purdy's classics - a  work of great scope - that captures the very essence of man's  long relationship with the horse  in a few sweeping lines. The  poem should be read in its entirety but the following excerpt  suggests the flavour.  Onagers racing through  Hither Asia and/The fast  Quagga screaming in African  highlands/Lost relatives of  these/Whose hooves were  thunder/The ghosts of horses  battering through the  wind/ Whose names were the  wind's common usage/ Whose  life was the sun's.  Purdy Selected M&S-1972.  The rewards of becoming a  poetic top-gun are considerable.  Many doors open that were  formerly closed. Poet-in-  residence posts at various  universities become attainable.  Far-ranging and lucrative  reading-tours are offered. And  Britt on  Francis  A demonstration of painting  in the egg tempera technique by  Britton Francis will be held on  Wednesday, July 31 at the Arts  Centre, Sechelt, starting at 7  p.m.  Britton Francis, an experienced and accomplished practitioner of this technique, will  also explain how to prepare surfaces for painting with egg  tempera.  Egg 'tempera was used as far  back in history as ancient Egyptian times and continues to be a  popular medium with many artists.  Admission to this event is $3.  a iiiuii ^itiai imuiauwitj filial hi iigw  the Canada Council in its  wisdom, is far more likely to  look on monetary requests with  a favourable eye.  While still riding the tide of  success engendered by The  Cariboo Horses, Purdy received  a major Canada Council Grant.  It enabled him to embark on a  adventure he had long wanted  to undertake. A tour of  Canada's High Arctic.  This traipse through the Inuit  out lands resulted in some of  Purdy's most powerful poetry  and a second book with McClelland & Stewart called North  of Summer, that only served to  consolidate his reputation.  North Of Summer contains  some of Purdy's most powerful  evocations. The poems are  wrenchingly honest, describing  almost impossible things. How  for instance, do you put into  poetry a situation where you are  trying to have a "bowel movement in inhospitable wastes,  and the huskies are snapping at j  your buttocks? Purdy somehow  makes poetry of this in an  hilarious piece called: When I  Sat Down To PJay The Piano.  To be continued  Hamburger  Special  LUNCH TIME ONLY  75  while  they last  1  Coming Up  Sat.

Funny, at times hilarious, the  movie, the latest from the  venerable John Houston, is also  filled with dark satire and  moves unromantically towards  a chilling and inexorable conclusion.  Starting Saturday, August 3  at 7 p.m., comes a movie in the  Spielberg style. Explorers, from  the director of Gremlins, Joe  Dante, features kids, computer  effects, creatures cuddly or  bloodcurdling, mixed and served to please a teenage crowd.  Three California teens build a  spaceship and the movie about  the trio provides the plot for the  film. The kids are appealing and  natural, their trip a little  familiar, but the twist is in the  aliens they encounter; no wise  and graceful aliens as in Close  Encounters, but rather bubble  brained TV fanatics.  The movie runs until Tuesday, August 6 and is for general  exhibition although there is occasional coarse language and  swearing.  All-Stars coming  It's official! The team  representing the city of Seattle  in the up-coming theatresports  tournament in Roberts Creek  will be an "all star" team from  that league. A spokesperson  from the Suncoast Players said  that such a development could  only mean one thing. They  mean to take home the  "Screw".  ..When contacted, a person, or  perhaps a thing - (he/it was  green in colour with webbed  feet) claiming to be an official  of the Calgary team indicated  that their game plan wouldn't  change.  "We will stick to our game  plan," it said. "Seattle is good,  but we're hot right now. We are  on an unbeaten streak right  now." When asked about the  current champs from Vancouver City Stage, it's reply was  it  terse,   "ribbet!   ribbet!...  said.  For their part, the current  champs seen confident. A  representative from the Vancouver team said they were  polished and ready. When asked about the mystery team, she  shrugged and said that despite  the rumours that this team was  a special group, trained by the  theatrespjoefcs^ guru Keith  Johnston himself, they'd be  ready. (A group claiming to be  the mystery team have been seen  sculking about in black cloaks  on Sechelt streets after midnight.)  So it looks like there is going  to be a hard fought tournament  this year. It all happens at  Roberts Creek Hall, with a 9  p.m. start on August 1, 2 and 3.  See you all there!  Sports writer  at Festival  by Ruth Forrester  When sports columnist Jim  Taylor appears at the Festival  on Saturday, August 17 he will  talk not only to the ardent  sports fans in the audience. He  will be comparing sports writing  to "other writing!" in "Jocks  are Just People with Muscles"  or "Block that Metaphor!"  At present Jim writes for The  Province, does editorials for  CKWX and makes occasional  TV appearances. He will be  sure to have plenty of  humourous and interesting  anecdotes to relate, and will be  happy to answer your questions.  Tickets for Festival events are  available at both book shops in  Sechelt.  JIM TAYLOR  "Poverty in B.C."  course proposed  A provincial anti-poverty  group has asked education  minister, Jack Heinrich, to introduce a course on "Poverty in  B.C." into the school social  studies curriculum.  "We bel'eve this [course]  would be ideally suited for  study in conjunction with the  Expo curriculum unit," said  Leslie Black, spokesperson for  End Legislated Poverty (ELP),  in a letter to Heinrich.  "It is important.for the social  studies curriculum to include a  balance of views on government  priori Jes," the. letter explains.  The group notes that growing  income disparity has become a  fact of B.C. life and that over  80,000 B.C. children live on income assistance rates that are  about half the poverty line. If  these children attend Expo, the  letter goes on, food may have to  be cut out of the family budget.  ELP has asked to meet with  the government curriculum advisors to discuss the anti-  poverty curriculum further. An  outline of the "Poverty in  B.C." curriculum has been  prepared. ELP plans to work  with educators over the summer  to develop it fully.  by Steve Hubert  Be there or be square, eh?  Those who were square missed out on fine guitar performances by "Papa" John King,  Toronto-based lead instrumentalist for Long John Baldry at  the weekend show in the  Wakefield Inn.  "Papa" John King himself  admits to the excitement of  working with Baldry as well as  with dynamic vocalist, Kathi  McDonald and blues harmonica  specialist "Butch" Colter.  King explains that, in this informal format, he never knows  what the lead vocalists may take  him into next, but the musicians  are all of such high calibre that  the excitement is created in just  such a fashion.  Long John Baldry reflects the  years of rubbing elbows and  eardrums with musical legends  in the blues field.  His guitar style is flawlessly  articulate in the blues format.  The "King of Rock and Roll" is  obviously at home with a  pleading lament such as "Baby,  please don't go".  Kathy McDonald's searing  vocal excursions stripped the attentive audience of its inhibitions to produce a rousing  chorus on songs such as "Heat  Wave" and "Piece of my  Heart", (a former Janis Joplin  speciality).  Colter provided a perfect instrumental counterpoint to the  others' work with his sensible  harmonica expressions - weaving in and out of the musical-  fabric with pleasing solos.  The Sunshine Coast and  Wakefield Inn hospitality has  provided yet another perfect  vacation for some talented and  hard-working people.  "Papa" John and "Butch"  caught their first (three) salmon  ever, courtesy of Gary Radym-  ski and it seems that a splendid  time was had by all.  The show was produced by  the Wakefield Inn in conjunction with Vancouver entrepreneur Gary Taylor.

Golf and Country Club  Sneddon is champ  by Alec Warner  The 54 hole Men's Club  Championship, held on July 13,  14, and 21, was not settled until  the final 54th hole. At the completion of the 52nd hole Bill  Sneddon and Roy Scarr were all  tied at 218. On the par three  17th (the 53rd), Bill went ahead  by one when he birdied the hole  over Roy's par.  After a spectacular drive on  the tough last hole, Bill finished  with a par four, to Roy's bogey  five, to take the championship,  with a score of 224 to Roy's  226.  Congratulations to Bill Sneddon Jr. as the new men's club  champion and to runner-up,  Roy Scarr. Bill will represent the  club in the BCGA Tournament  of Champions in September.  The overall low net score or  the tournament was won by  Ron Geraro with a 54 hole net  score of 181. The first flight  winner was Dick Gaines, with  Don Douglas runner-up. Second flight winner-Ken White,  -followed by Chris Jones.  Number one in the third  flight-Andy Gray and Bill  Boragno second.  A four person Scramble was  played during Mixed Twilight  of July 22. First with a net 17  3/8 was the team of Hilda Clancy, Les Cowley, Dawn Bayford,  and Phil Clarke. Second at 18  5/8, Hazel Wright, Wilf  Nestman, Nan McFarlane, and  Bill Clancy.  The team of Lila Chambers,  Alec Warner, Doris Receveur,  and Walt Faulifer, took low  putt honours with only 10 putts.  The special 'Chip-in' winners  were Nan McFarlane, Louise  Dorey, and Dick Thompson.  On July 23, Ladies' Day, the  Eighteeners held the annual  Christmas in July event with  Joyce McMillen acting (suitably  attired) at Mrs.Claus. From all  reports, the many fine gifts truly  made it 'Christmas in July' for  everyone.  On July 18 the Sunshine  Coast Ladies' Third Team  visited the Musqueam Club with  resulting scores of 40'/2 for Sunshine Coast and 31'/i for Musqueam.  The ladies Niners played the  final of the Half and Half Tournament with Eleanor Knight  emerging the winner and Jan  Robertson runner-up. Low putt  honours were shared by Isobel  Draper, Adie Gayton, and  Isobel Cowley.  Men's Twilight golf of July  24 registered the following  results: first low cross of  40-Brian Leckie, second low  cross of 41-Don Douglas. First  low net, Roy Taylor (33), second low net, Gordy Dixon  (33'/2), and third, Barry Reeves  (33 Vz).  Following golf a barbequed  steak dinner was thoroughly enjoyed by all. Next week, July  31, special K.P.'s on three and  eight will be featured.  On Thursday^ July 25, the  Seniors played a best three nets  out of four with the team of  Roy Taylor, Tom Wark,  George Bayford, and Bill  McKinnon tying with the team  of Roy Scarr, Bill Bader, Art  Kilon, and Bill Grant with a low  net 93 each.

Do   your   forehand   and  backhand ground strokes often  hit the net, or land short in your  opponent's court? Juniors in  the Pepsi-Wilson Minor Tenniss  League will tell you that smartt  tennis players hit the ball highj  over   the   net.   This   tactic  decreases their chances of striking the net, and sends the ball  deep into the opposite court.  But hitting high over the net  is just for beginners, isn't it?  Tennis pros try to skim the net,  don't they? The answer to both  questions is no. Most top  players aim their forehand and  backhand ground strokes,  about two racquet lengths  above the net. They keep the  ball from sailing out the back of  the court by hitting with  topspin. In other words, they  make the ball spin forwards, as  it travels through the air.  Topspin is easy to produce.  Start your swing low, at about  knee level. Aim to brush up on  the ball with a vertical racquet  face when it is in front of your  leading foot.  Finish the swing, with your  racquet out in front, and above  head level. This low-to-high,  'up the stairs' motion will make  the ball arc high over the net,  and drop sharply into the court.  Try it. Your consistency will improve tremendously.  Several juniors in the Pepsi-  Wilson Minor Tennis League  played very consistent tennis  last week, earning for  themselves Tennis Canada Per  formance Awards.  In Pender Harbour, Cam  Knight and Ryan Schroeder.  At Sechelt, Cindy Baker and  Hans Vedo.  In Gibsons, Jennie Baxter,  Brian Davies, Geoff Taylor,  Adam Thompsen, and Aaron  Service.  In the final rounds of mini-  tournament play at Pender Harbour, Ryan Schroeder defeated  Cam Knight 2 to 0.  In Sechelt, Sara Yates beat  Cindy Baker 2 to 1, in a very  close fought contest.  At Gibsons, Jennie Baxter  beat Robbie McNea 3 to 0.

The place to begin  perhaps is on some reflections  on China.  After nearly six weeks I think  we were all ready for the Russian experience. Don't get  me wrong, China is a great country to visit, all of it was worth  while, but it can be extremely  frustrating at times. Especially  when one doesn't know how to  read or speak the language. Ac-  tually, it js, more than that, as  we have run into a number of  Westerners, who are fluent in  Chinese, and they too have felt  extremely frustrated.  After one particularly trying  day in Beijing, I began to write  down the things that annoy me,  not only on that day, but also  previous annoyances.  Note: during the cultural  revolution a very important  component was to write self-  criticisms, so my writing of  what was bothering me, I considered self-criticism.  Now, once I had completed  the list that ranged from being  upset that each bus stop seems  two kilometers apartj_and even  *     Pender Harbour Branch St. Mary's Hosp. Aux. Bake Sale. 10 a.m. Sat.

Individually, none of these  things are particularly important, in fact, some are rather  humorous. The point is however, that they tend to be  cumulative. What makes it  worse, is that you end up talking to other Western travellers,  as everyone shares information,  and ultimately the conversation  gets around to one or more  hassles that various individuals  have had to endure.  You laugh about it, but you  empathize also, and some of the  grief rubs off on you. Now, one  has to be careful not to become  Tourists  Continued from page 18  park everywhere and anywhere.  "By-laws are needed to make  it possible for people to allow  campers to park on their property, in parks, maybe at the  airport," said Langdon,  "We can do nothing and be  faced with chaos, or we can  make use of the opportunity.  We can't stop the people from  coming, so we should make the  most of the chance to create  jobs. We want lots of those  visitors to come back, not to go  away thinking badly of us," she  said.  too ethnocentric. The real problem lies in some fundamental  ways of life between East and  West.  In the West we want (demand) order in almost anything  we do. It is precisely the opposite for China. Everything,  from our Western eye operates  on whim or karma,(some call it  josh), and you can have good  and bad karma! This is really  the beauty of China, but as I  mentioned earlier, some days  there seems to be a fair amount  of bad karma happening.  Hopefully the above account  of frustrations does not turn  anyone off China. It really is  what makes China unique.  To be continued  ��� MISC SERVICES ���  Need this space?

Tentchoff announced that  she must leave in order to  devote time to other interests,  but will assist the new executive  over the next year in the transition.  She is recognized for her  work in raising the standards of  the care and cataloguing of  museum artifacts begun by her  predecessor, Gary Kent, and for  enhancing the recognition of the  museum as an important institution for the culture of the  Sunshine Coast.  Her ability to successfully  understand and manage grants  has both aided the operation of  the museum and provided important employment over the  years.  Tourists  coming  "We have what the majority  of people want on their vacations," Anne Langdon,  manager of the Sunshine Coast  Tourism Association (SCTA)  said in an interview with the  Coast News last week, "that's  wilderness, trees, the ocean; in  short, a wilderness experience  not too far removed from  civilization and next year a lot  of people will come here to get  away from the crowds in Vancouver.  The SCTA is experiencing  financial difficulties, said  Langdon, and this echoes  statements made by Richard  Tomkies in an address to the  Economic Development Commission (EDC) late in June.  "It's strictly hand to mouth;  memberships are very slow,  partly because of local business  being hard hit by the economic  times," Langdon explained,  "it's $40 to join and that's  sometimes hard to come up  with. ���      .    , ���  "Another reason memberships are >low is because some  people don't recognise the need  for the SCTA to be promoting  the Coast," she continued.  The SCTA is attempting to  co-operate with other groups  such as the Chambers of Commerce; the Sechelt Chamber has  provided the SCTA with office  space for a nominal rent with  some staff co-operation from  the SCTA, and the Gibsons  Chamber is co-hosting the  Superhost program.  "Ferry traffic is up 15 per.  cent in the last two months, and  twice the number of tourists  who visited in 1982 (481,300)  are expected to visit this year,"  Langdon said, "and next year  there'll be even more.  Langdon sees the major problem as the lack of accommodation on the Coast and the SCTA  is hoping to be able to put  together a Sunshine Coast Bed  and Breadfast registry, provided  funds are available to make that  possible.  "There are not enough camping sites either," Langdon explained, "there are only 180  campsites, and 37 per cent of  the people who come here use  campsites.

The executive, chosen from  eight candidates, consists of  Tam Johnson, who has been  cataloguing an important Salish  artifact collection (together with  Mike Clement); Colleen Elson,  principal of "Cedar Grove  elementary school and a new  member of the museum; Jim  Laird, who is responsible for  the museum's excellent geology  collection; Noni Hill, a long  time resident of Gibsons, and  one of the early members of the  museum society; and Saya  Woods, who has been a  museum volunteer since 1982.  Tentchoff pointed out to the  meeting that, due to this year's  serious cutbacks in grant funding, which are expected to continue, there is a need for more  community volunteers to help  run the museum.  Tentchoff would like to see  the museum set up to qualify  for a provincial Operational  Grant. These grants, though  now frozen and therefore not  available to new applicants, are  expected to again become  available as the economy improves.  Tentchoff estimates this grant  would result in funding of approximately $7-15,000 for the  Elphinstone Pioneer Museum.  To qualify, a full time director, working at least 30 hours  per week, must be hired and the  museum must be open year  round.  1 Gibsons Alderman John  Burnside, who was present at  the meeting, both as a museum  member, and in his capacity as  the member of council responsible for the museum, addressed  the issue of "the town's lack of  funding for the museum.  The town of Gibsons owns  the museum's building and pays  its hydro bills. However, no  ^direct funding has been made  available. Burnside said he felt  the town should assist the  museum with an annual amount  of $5000, which is the same as  the library began receiving this  year.  As a regional museum serving  the whole Sunshine Coast, funding assistance is currently being received from the village of  Sechelt and the regional board;  the SCRD granted the museum  $280 at its July 25 meeting.  Over the years, Tentchoff has  been encouraging the establishment of a museum in Sechelt  and a native museum on the  Sechelt Indian Band lands.
