 IEC\ IS t-AY'O c    L'.foP.fcftv-\ .  i/iOf&ftifl.  6-C .  V SV Ixif  g/*.u.  j Last week's school board  ���meeting had to be held over to  .Thursday night when Tuesday's  ! meeting was  adjourned at 9  p.m. because a parent shouted  idown the chair. The RCMP  were called to restore order but  ; by'that time the parent had left.  The meeting began on a for-  ;rnal note with the swearing in of  Trustee David Mewhort elected  -to fill the vacancy left by former  .Trustee Jamie Stephen.  An overflow crowd of  parents and other interested  people filled the boardroom to  listen to and take part in the  promised discussion on whether  to direct a committee of the  board to "develop a policy  which would allow the teaching  of the origins of life with a  balanced treatment of evolution  and creation".  Several briefs were presented  and   rules   relaxed   to   allow  Board statement  >��� The school board of School  !^District No. 46 is very aware  2that anxiety in the community  : related to child abuse is currently heightened by reported local  ;iases.  ;y The board considers any  "child abuse to be a most serious  matter. The board wishes to  assure all concerned that it is  addressing the known local  cases of abuse in a judicious  manner and to the best of its  ability.  The nature of abuse cases is  such that the board finds itself  dealing with very personal and  confidential information and  each trustee is duty bound to  respect the rules of confidentiality.  It is therefore most difficult  to reassure enquirers that the  board is actively addressing this  problem when it is not in a position to supply any reassuring  details.  Recent studies suggest that  one in every four girls and one  in every seven boys will be subject to abuse before the age of  18 years. These are alarming  statistics to society.  The board is therefore giving  serious attention to the subject,  and is in the process of setting  targets for the fall that will  begin to address this major  social problem.  anyone who wished to speak to  the subject. Comments were  eloquent and thoughtfully  prepared and although obviously many held strong feelings  which they were not about to  change, the discussion was  orderly with everyone willing to  listen. The matter however  came to an abrupt conclusion  when there was no .seconder for  Trustee Muryn's motion.  The school board had  prepared a written response to  the questions posed by parents  at the June 6 forum on sexual  abuse and accepted at this  meeting the synopsis of that  meeting prepared by the parents  and presented by Debbie  Mealia.  The two reports differed only  in one respect, that of the  board's continuing trust in the  advice of their legal advisors.  In brief the school board has  undertaken to: 1. Update its  policy relating to complaints  about sexual abuse in the school  community. This policy should  be ready after the summer and  parents will be notified and kept  fully informed.  2. In future, records will be  required to be kept by principals  of any complaint. The log book  should include: a) names of persons involved; b) name of per  son reporting; c) to whom it was  first reported; d) any action that  .was taken; e) all non-teaching  staff, teaching staff, volunteers  ': and  parent  auxiliaries  to  be  ���made aware of this procedure  \ and follow it.  ���Chairman  Edmonds  added  :that   she   personally   would  ^recommend the board receive a  'full report on log book entries  .every three months on a confidential basis.  3. All staff will be expected to  -participate   in   a   workshop  |related to the proper procedures  yand to alert them to recognize  "indicators of abuse.  .4. Board policy is currently  Under review with the aim of  ^Improving communications and  yavpiding problems in the future.  y,y5.; Trustees plan to improve  communication    with    the  iRCMP, MHR and other agen-  ycies in order to.be themselves  ^better informed.  ;\  6. Funds will be forthcoming  ;yfrom the government to cover  .professional help for the victims, and the board has been  'authorized to draw on these  .funds to provide services  although the government has  ;hot yet decided how the district  vWill be reimbursed. This is an  accounting procedure which  makes   funds   available   in  emergencies without waiting for  everything to go through the  proper channels.  7. All three ministries, health,  education and human resources  are working together to provide  help for those who need it. An  advertisement for a special  counsellor has been issued.  Later Ron McBride, representing the Sunshine Coast  Labour Council made further  recommendations on behalf of  its members, as follows: a) child  abuse must be clearly defined,  with no grey areas of behaviour;  b) all employees must be given,  opportunity for workshops.  Employee education is a must.  They must be aware of the signs  and symptoms; c) administration must check references more.  carefully and we mustn't pass  on a bad egg to others; d) the  school board must have a policy  of accountability; e) decisions  must be made more quickly, someone must be responsible, and  any employee found guilty must  be suspended or dismissed.  In other business a resolution  was approved as required by the  ministry for capital expenditures for the year 1985-86 in  the total amount of $40,000.  This amount covers $18,600 for  minor renovations, $18,600 for  minor roofing repairs and $3240  for grade 10 science equipment. \  More charges  The Sechelt RCMP has announced that charges of a sexual nature were laid against a  former Chatelech secondary  school counsellor, Leonard  Marchand, 46, on June 28.  The charges come at the end  of a lengthy investigation by the  RCMP into alleged sexual abuse  and include three counts of indecent assault and four counts  of sexual assault.  According to a report in the  Saturday edition of "The Sun",  Marchand had been suspended  by the School Board of District  No. 46 at a long in-camera  meeting on Thursday night,  after receiving a report from the  superintendent of schools, John  Denley.  Marchand had been suspended earlier in the year, but had  been re-instated without censure, after which he tendered his  resignation, effective June 30.  He has been on sick leave since  that time.

Gibsons still grappling  with sign difficulty  ���Brad Benson photo  "I don't know where we  stand yet," said Mayor Larry  Labonte at the June 24 committee of whole meeting in Gibsons; "the solution is not an  easy one and it seems to be  political."  t The solution being sought is  one to the thorny problem of  signs in lower Gibsons and there  Was much discussion at the  meeting. Planner Rob Buchan  said that the staff is drawing up  . a new by-law to replace the old,  which has been the cause of the  difficulty.  "The existing by-law is inade  quate." Buchan said, "On June  13 we sent a gently worded letter  to the owners of several signs at  the five corners, asking for their  co-operation in removing the  signs. There has been no feedback as yet, but the issue was  highlighted last weekend when a  new, even larger sign appeared  at the corner."  Alderman Norm Peterson expressed his concern that the  staff have a complete list of all  the non-conforming signs  before action is taken.  "We can't just take down  sandwich board signs," Peterson said, and Alderman John  Burnside agreed.  "We can't enforce the by-law  selectively," he said, "and the  application of the law shouldn't  have a political bias.  "I'm not happy about the bylaw," continued Burnside,  "and I don't know why we have  a punitive by-law, but we have  to obey the law."  Despite Alderman Peterson's  call for a moratorium until  more information is obtained  the Council agreed, "reluctantly", to enforce the by-law and  continue working on finding a  more equitable solution to the  problem.  "The step that's missed,  ^���M^^^^Mp5 i^onomic  ^development ^s-that6^mv^lving,!,  the whole community. If you  leave out key groups, suspicion  arises, they feel excluded.  That's the first stumbling block  and it dooms a lot of projects to  failure."  Irene Lugsdin, appointed by  the Sunshine Coast Regional  District (SCRD) to a newly  created position as Community  Development Officer, was  speaking in a conversation with  the Coast News the day after  her appointment.  In this position Lugsdin 'will  promote rational, social and  economic planning and  development which will reflect  the Sunshine Coast community.  She will do this by consulting  with the local governments,  agencies, community groups  and individuals'.  Lugsdin comes to this position from a career which has increasingly focussed on helping  people to realize their potential  in the labour force and in the  community.  The career began in the purchasing department at Canadian Forest Products. It was  there that Lugsdin began to see  that the informal structures  within the company revealed  more about the workings of the  company from day to day than  did the more formal structures.  "It was in the charity or the  profit clubs that I found out  more about the workers,"  Lugsdin explained. "I realized  that people aren't always just  their position; I saw that the  mail clerk wasn't just a mail  clerk but had his own special  talents. You have to give people  a chance to perform at their best  level.  "It was at Canfor that I  learned much of my organizational and leadership skills,"  she continued, "and one of the  strongest influences in my  career was that of Ron  Longstaff, who is still an executive officer with the company, (vice-president).  "He taught me a great deal.  He never took credit for  something he didn't do, and he  wasn't afraid to surround  himself with good people to  help him achieve goals. He was  really a critical influence in my  life," Lugsdin said.  Lugsdin had climbed to the  position of office manager  when she married her husband,  Dr. James Lugsdin. She left  Canfor at that time to accom  pany him to Dawson Creek.  "That   was-  an   important  move," she said, "moving up  nq^thmto a rural community. It :  wasi springmg-iritp^r^ and territory I'd never been in before.  "Going back a bit, I've been  a sincere feminist since I was  about 12 years old, and it was in  Dawson Creek that I found a  role in helping other women see  that being a woman is not  necessarily a handicap.  "The public health nurse,  Molly Hennie, saw that I could  be something of a role model  for women re-entering the work  force, and I developed and  taught a course for Continuing  Education, teaching women  how to do just that," Lugsdin  continued.  "The course was successful  and was repeated; in the meantime I took a course myself in  community lay counselling. I  found that it complemented  what I was doing, and I ended  up teaching both courses. I was  around in the community all the  time, visiting businesses to arrange practicums and so on. It  was a great way to learn about.  :-: :the��ornmunity^ : -.  It was then that Lugsdin took  a position as employment  counsellor with the Canada  Employment Centre, primarily  working with women clients and  clients with special needs.  In little more than a year  Lugsdin was manager, with a  staff of 50, delivering service to  Fort St. John and Fort Nelson,  and most of the Peace River  area. She was beginning to settle  into enjoying her new position  when her husband was transferred to the Sunshine Coast.  "1 took a job at the 10th  Avenue Employment Centre, as  assistant manager, but I ended  up with one foot in Vancouver  and one foot on the Sunshine  Coast. It was too difficult to  cope with that, so I took a five  year leave of absence," she said.

"Some anomalies have appeared in the data," he said.  In the meantime a subcommittee was formed last  week at an in-camera meeting of  the restructuring committee; the  new committee will be responsible for arranging times and  dates of up-coming public  meetings where more information will be made available and  debate will be possible on this  issue. Coast News, July 1,1985  Improvements  needed  Local government, for all its shortcomings, is the most  accessible forum we have to voice our opinions and to see  that the community develops as we would like it to.  The first step in the process is to exercise our right to  vote; in the recent school board election only 10 per cent of  those eligible to vote came out to the polls, and this is the  rule, not the exception, in this and in other local elections.  Once the officials are in place, whether they be aldermen, regional directors or school trustees, they are our  representatives, and are there to carry out our wishes as  best they can. But again, unless we exercise our right to  free speech, those officials are unable to fulfill their mandate.  An example of this is the school board. Until budget  cut-backs forced parents out to protest against what were  seen as draconian measures of restraint, it was a rare night  when more than a handful of interested folk were in the  audience at any school board meeting.  Now, of course, the troubles besetting our school  district bring the people out in droves, as it proper. But it is  well to remember that during all those years of meetings,  policy was being decided, business was being conducted  that affects the children of this district.  It is not enough to come out when the going is rough;  our representatives need to see that they are supported in  their position, and they need to hear what the public has to  say.  The school board has been under seige; now that the end  of the present problems seems to be in sight it would be a  fitting time for a few basic reforms. It is imperative that a  good system of recording the business of the board be put  into place. At the two municipal chambers and in the  board room of the SCRD a tape recorder tapes the  business of each meeting.  Full and detailed minutes are circulated regularly so that  officials and members of the public are able to keep up to  date with what has-occurred.  The system contains some reasonable checks and  balances, a bit more of a guarantee that the democratic  process is in place. The school board would benefit by  following such a system in the conduct of its business.  Although in camera meetings are necessary for the  discussion of sensitive and private matters, it must never  be forgotten that, ultimately, all officials must be accountable to the people who elected them, and must be seen to  be so.

It stood just west of the road  leading to the present wharf. It was built before he had his saw mill  and later on a lean-to was added on the left side, which formed a  new covered entrance as well as storage for the grain, hay and feed.  The building also contained the first post office; until then Tom  Roberts had been the post master, operating out of his house down  in the bay. The sign, "STORE" was in prominent letters on the  front of the building so that passing fishermen would know that the  store was there and come in to buy supplies. The residents would  come down the skid roads from the hills once every week or two for  mail and supplies. The present Roberts Creek Road (Hall Road) is  angled to the west as it is because of the lay of the land; the east side  of the road is very rocky and it was impossible to build a skid road  in that direction. The first store was roughy eight feet by 12 feet,  though the lean-to added some extra space when it was built. It was  in the lean-to that Harry Roberts had his beam scale, used to weigh  feed and grain. Many of the early youngsters born in the area were  first weighed on the scale since it was the only one around. A second store was built a few years later and it was somewhat larger.  There was no electricity or refrigeration; most things kept fairly  well except the butter. It came in 50 pound wooden boxes with  beautifully dove-tailed corners and lined with paraffin; local  residents were always anxious to lay their hands on the empties for  household use. To keep the butter cold a large hole was dug behind  the waterwheel which stood close to the site of the lowest bridge  over Roberts Creek. It was lined with wood and the boxes were  stored there. Mr. Charles Merrick recalls that, as a young lad helping out in Harry's store, he would be despatched up the creek to  fetch a pound of butter when it was needed.

It was obvious  the oldtimer had his dander up.  I had wandered into the local  country store in search of a cup  of coffee and a sports page.  Jake was seated on one of'the  stools glaring at the latest edition of the big city newspaper.  "To whom do I refer?"  snorted Jake. "To Rampant  Ronald, who else?"  "Do you perchance mean the  president of all of the Untied  States?"  "Has your brain turned completely to mush," snarled Jake.  "Look at this will you, and see  if you can forget about grown  men playing boy's sports for at  least a portion of one morning  in your mis-spent life."  He gestured towards a mighty  ���headline which proclaimed  FREEDOM FOILED all the  way across the top of the  tabloid page.  But I wasn't quite ready to let  his gibe at my sports page addiction pass unchallenged. It was,;  after all, a day off.  "Jake, I've told you the  sports pages are the last "bastion  Jake on terrorism  of heroic writing. I read them  for the wordsmithery."  "Horsefeathers," snapped  Jake. "Consider what this clod  has done now. With the  hostages just about on board  the plane to freedom the leader  of the free world calls their captives thugs, murderers and barbarians. Then he promises  retribution and'we're back at  square one beginning the  negotiations all over again."  "It does seem a little ill-  advised," I sighed, knowing  that my escape into the world of  sports fantasy was to be  somewhat postponed.  "Ill-advised? It's insane,"  snarled Jake. "When the  Ayatollah Khomenei calls the  U.S. the 'Great Satan' it is seen  as evidence that he is a deranged  and possible senile fanatic.  When Reagan calls the USSR  an 'evil empire' it is straight talk  from a god-fearing man. The  double standard habitually applied is an evidence of a serious  psychological diorder.  "Why are 39 American  hostages front-page news when  700 Lebanese Moslems held by  Israel aren't considered  newsworthy."  "Surely,    Jake,"    I   said  carefully, "you are not here uttering a defence of terrorism?"  "Don't be any more of a twit  than you can help. Of course  I'm not defending terrorists.  I'm just insisting that the same  yardstick be used to identify terrorists the world over.  "Seizing hostages, blowing  up planes, and shooting ambassadors is terrorism true  enough. But what are we going  to call the mining of Nicaraguan  harbours? What about the supplying of arms to counter-  government insurgent forces in  Nicaragua and government  forces in El Salvador?  "The United States is subsidizing slaughter in the Middle  East and in Central America.  When they do it they give it a  fancy name. The El Salvador  death squads are still going  strong but they claim to be anti-  Communist so they are freedom  fighters, no matter what  atrocities they commit.  "The United States is selling  arms to all of the crazed factions in Lebanon getting rich in  the process, and then declaiming righteously about thugs and  murderers when they get their  tail caught in the madness they  are both fomenting and sup  plying arms to."  "Careful, Jake. I'm not sure  you should be denouncing  violence in quite these violent  terms." ' ['  Jake grinned suddenly. "You  could be right. But it gets my  goat when someone as jingoistic  and bellicose as Reagan gets  righteous when other people  feel they have as much righi ���s  he does to inflict their views by  violence."  "The problems of the world  are not solvable by violence,"  said Jake, more calmly, "and  yet we have this geriatric fraud  pretending he's a tough guy.'for  the delectation of yahoos and  with the future of mankind in  the crucible. It's enough to cur-  ,dle frozen milk.  "God, it would be great to  live in a country less servile and  mindless than this." Jake shook  his head and looked briefly out  the window. '  "But don't let me disturb  your soporific haze. Read your  damn sports page and ignore  the insanity of so-called world  leaders for as long as you can;"  and he slapped down the money  for his coffee and his paper and  went off down the road.  Maryanne's    viewpoint  Steiner schools making inroads  by Maryanne West  Rudolf Steiner schools have  been quietly plugging along  since the beginning of the century, spreading out from  western Europe to the rest of  the world. It seems no accident  that there is now renewed interest in his educational  philosophy and it looks as  though the Waldorf School  Movement may well be an  answer to many parents' and  teachers' concerns about education for the twenty-first century.  Rudolf Steiner was one of the  nineteenth century educational  reformers in western Europe  who responded to the needs of  children when education  became more or less universal;  he followed such people as  Pestalozzi, Froebel, the father  of kindergartens and Dr. Marie  Montessori all of whom were  interested in how children learn  and in tailoring methods to take  advantage of the child's natural  interests, curiosity and power of  observation.  Rudolf Steiner, a student of  anthroposophy, the study of  mankind, developed a philosophy of education which involves the whole child, body,  mind and spirit.  Learning and the curriculum  of a Waldorf school are geared  to the physical and the  psychological stages of growth;  emphasis is on learning through  creating rather than straightforward book learning.  All through their school life,  but particularly in the junior  school, much time is spent on  cultural activities, art, crafts,  music, eurythmics, drama,  story-telling; not to educate the  child to be a musician or an artist but to give him/her as great  an opportunity as possible to  experience the arts so that  he/she can enrich his/her own  life and the lives of others.  Steiner believes that the  mastery of manual skills  stimulates the mind and the intellect and so boys and girls  learn to knit, crochet, sew and  work with clay, wood and  paint, etc. at an early age.  Reading, mathematics and  intellectual studies are added  gradually as the children find a  need for them, at least two second languages are taught from  kindergarten.  Steiner's methods are a  deliberate attempt to get away  from the "industrialized  school" in which economics  and training children for a particular job are the bottom line  and where the importance of the  teacher is shared with textbooks, ��� films, computer work  kits and a variety of teaching  aids.  Students at a Waldorf senior  school will have access to these  aids, but the teacher's relationship to the children is all  important, so much so that  he/she stays with and continues  to develop with the same group  for the first eight years, with  specialist teachers added for  specific skills as needed. Rather  than learning from textbooks  each child compiles his/her own  books as he/she acquires  knowledge.  Steiner wanted education to  be the art of learning, a continuing process in which everyone  took part, rather than a series of  assignments to be completed  and then forgotten. He believed, and Waldorf students demonstrate, that, given a love of  learning, the desire for excellence and a well-rounded personality, children can quickly  pick up the necessary skills for  any specific job when the need  arises.  At a time when it becomes  more difficult to know what the  world will be like and how to  prepare children for the next  decade it makes sense to give  them as wide and secure' a  cultural basis as possible, to give  them roots. If they haven't been  put off learning but have ac-  quired an understanding of "the  world and human nature in all  its complexities and interrelationships then -they have  wings and can achieve their  potential in any field.  Steiner wrote, "One should  not ask, 'What does a person  need to know and to be able to  do for the existing social order?'  but rather 'What gifts does! a  person possess and how may  these be developed in him?'  Then it will be possible to bring  to the social order ever new  forces from each succeeding  generation.  "Then this social order will  always be alive with that which  each fully developed individual  brings with him into life, rather  than that each succeeding  generation is made to conform"-  to the existing social organic  tion."

There are very good  > ^reasons for the choice to make  ^recycling an integral part of gar-  ybage pick-up; for having curb-  yside pick-up and the every-  "y other-week schedule. Those  decisions were arrived at in  meetings where the advantages  and disadvantages were discussed at length. Now many people  are identifying the disadvantages as if they have just been  realized. What a waste of time,  energy and money. The  meetings, the phone calls, information gathering, several people worked hard on the recycling proposal.  We found in our discussions  some questions could not be  answered without a trial run.  We can estimate the percent  participation based on other  communities but we can't know  for sure until we try it. From the  participation rate we can arrive  at tonnage recycled and a good  schedule to meet the demand.  We took into account the concerns over smelly two week old  garbage. That is one reason why  we did not start in the summer.  The purpose of the trial  period is to work out the problems in the system. A little inconvenience   in   exchange   for  future savings, a cleaner environment, and conserved  resources. With a little inventiveness we can use the  recyclables right here: a new  process uses glass cullet for sand  blasting, paper can be puiped  and processed into blocks for  burning, metals can be melted  down for any number of uses,  and plastics can be shipped and  pressed into sheets. There is a  lot more job potential in recycling than in garbage disposal.  We all pay for weekly garbage pick-up. Some people feel  they are losing half the service  they pay for. I put out one can  of garbage per month. I thought  I was pretty unique. Lately I  have found that nearly everyone  who recycles puts out one can  per month. We are only getting  one quarter of the service we  pay for. Why should we have to  deliver our own recyclables  when we are paying for a  collection service which is set up  Trower slammed by Socred  Editor:  ; ��� . Your paper of June 17, 1985  ;had   an   article   from    Peter  . Trower called "Trundling into  "the future". I must take exception to his statement,  "Expo  -rhust be viewed as a piece of  high-handed   extravagance   on  ��� the  part   of  an   irresponsible  government, financed at the expense of education, social services and the ever expanding  ranks of the poor."  ,    Mr. Trower should take the  'time to check his facts before he  runs off at the pen! Expo 86 is  not   financed   out   of general  revenues; it is financed by Expo  649,   corporate   endorsement  charges and by gate revenue.  This fantastic fair will be a vehicle to the education of all those  who visit it. It provides  thousands of jobs at a time  when jobs are needed, it will  provide 17,000 further jobs for.  our youth in 1986 and it will  help to keep the people off  welfare and UIC. Mr. Trower  should also be aware that a further 700 to 800 million dollars  worth of private enterprise investment already being spent in  projects in the Vancouver area,  is directly attributable to Expo  being held.  Mr. Trower should talk to all  those labourers, union and non  union, who are getting a pay  cheque every two weeks and ask  them if Expo 86 should not be!  Mr. Trower, 1 can only surmise that it's because Premier  Bennett and the Social Credit  government had the vision to  have Expo 86 is the reason for  your "anti-Expo" snide  remarks.  Perhaps if you did your  homework in the past you  wouldn't have to be "Trundling  into the future".  Ed Kisling  Regional Director  MacKenzie Riding  B.C. Social Credit Party  Socreds rush to sell water  Editor:  The Socred government  didn't even wait for the recommendations of the Pearse Inquiry on Federal Water Policy,  due to come down in July,  before rushing through its secret  order-in-council on March 28  authorizing the bulk export of  .water from B.C. to the U.S.  ������The Pearse Commission  report, after holding public  hearings stated: "The overwhelming majority (at the hearings) rejected consideration of  export out of hand, or added  No  problem  Editor:  In response to the concerned  parents who wrote to the Coast  , News expressing fears for their  children  on  the  Port  Mellon  Highway.  As a father of four children, I  am surprised that neither my  wife or I were invited to join  this elite group of concerned  parents. As a concerned parent,  if I catch my children playing on  the highway, they receive a  lesson in flying, propelled by the  toe of my boot.  :. Why the police should receive  complaints of speeding when a  dog is killed is beyond me.  It is too bad the "speeding"  hit and run drivers who hit these  dogs wouldn't own up to the  fact, so I could shake their  hand.  They have done this community a great service. I  couldn't leave my back door  open because a 28 inch, 78  pound dog would come in and  tear the kitchen garbage apart.  -As far as the 60 kilometre  speed limit on the Port Mellon  Highway is concerned, it should  be 80 kilometres per hour like  the rest of the province's  highways.  .Twisty, curvey Highway 101  to Pender is 80 kilometres with  speed cautionaries.  Most of North Road is 70  kilometres, and that area is  populated. ! do not know of  any other comparable stretch of  highway in this province that  has a 60 kilometre per hour  speed limit from beginning to  end. *C . PrentK  ��� ! ��� I'm' Mellon  conditions so restrictive as to  make its approval unlikely for  many years."  The Socred cabinet order-in-  council represents a complete  reversal of former Canadian  and provincial policy on water  exports and is a gross betrayal  of the province's interests. It  adopts water exports in principle, sets out a fee schedule for  bulk export of water, and is a  major step towards the large  scale export of water to the U.S.  It should be recalled that in  1981 Premier Bill Bennett told a  San Francisco audience of  businessmen that B.C.'s fresh  water resources were not for  sale. "Come and see me in 20  years," he told them. Bennett  has now moved that deadline up  to five years and his government  has now opened the floodgates  for water exports to the U.S.  Victoria should be flooded  with protests demanding no export of B.C,,water to the U.S.  They should demand that the  order-in-council be rescinded  and that no licence be granted  to Coast Mountain Aquasource  Ltd., or any other firm for the  purpose of exporting water  from B.C.  Maurice Rush, B.C. Leader  Communist Party of Canada  Vancouver, B.C.  to do it? Let's even the score a  little. With a little tolerance we  can all get the kind of service  that meets our needs.  I have beeen contacted by the  Recycling Council of B.C. and  Bowen Island for information  on our recycling system. They  are impressed. As one questionnaire comment stated, "Congratulations to those on the  regional board with such  foresight." What we are doing  here could be a model for other  communities. Let's not stamp  out a good idea before it has  had a chance to prove itself. I  know of many innovative, intelligent people in this community with some great ideas.  Now I know why they are silent.  Valerie J. Silver  Teenage  drinking  Editor:  Almost two months ago I  sent in a letter to this paper expressing my concern about  teenage drinking, in particular  relating to Tiffy Reid's untimely  death.  Now it has come to my attention that there is an agency in  North Vancouver called the  Alternatives Program who  would be willing to send a drug  and alcohol counsellor to this  area on a regular basis if they  can get sufficient extra funding  from the ministry of health.  This counsellor would deal with  teenagers referred from our  high schools and also adults  referred from our various social  services.  To this end, the Alternatives  Program would like a show of  support from our community in  the form of letters, requesting a  counsellor. I urge any of you  who are concerned about the  drinking and drug problems  here on the Coast to send a letter of support to: Ms Linda  Barrett, Executive Director of  Alternatives, 440 Hendry  Avenue, YMCA Building,  North Vancouver, B.C. V7L  4C5.  Ms Barrett will be meeting  with various MLAs in Vancouver on July 17, 1985 so letters must be in before that date.  If you need any more information call me at 886-3958.  Jan Mennie  Gibsons  ate ferry  Editor:  Ho boy! There is achance for  a late' ferry on Sunday nights.  What a neat concession to the  visitors to the Coast! But what  about the residents who are  drawn to the mainland to  savour the sights, scenes, sins  and sales, most of which seem  to occur at hours, or on days,  inconvenient for the present  9:15 p.m. last boat. How many  people do not come to the Coast  because they have to return on  the 8:20 p.m.? What are the ferries for if not to service both  groups?  v It will be interesting to see  what happens next year when  the hype and pressures seek to  loosen whatever change we have  left into the maw of Expo.

"Roberts Creek elementary is  especially appreciative of grants  from them," says Verne  Wishlove, the school principal.  "First to mention," says  Verne, "is the slide for our  Adventure Playground which  Ernie's group paid for. And  next is another $1000 which  they gave us for travel expenses.  And without that," Verne added, "we would not have been  able to send our athletes to  Powell River, and then, for  some who qualified, to Richmond where some medals were  won."  Verne says, "We were able,  too, to send our senior girls'  relay team to the recent Harry  Jerome track meet where they  took first place against some  pretty stiff competition. Jack  Tiernan is justly proud of the  team's showing there."  "At our major awards  assembly June 27," Verne added, "we were happy to pay  tribute to the Elphinstone  Recreation group for their  generous help."  The Kiwanis Care Home and  St. Mary's Hospital bbthreceiy-  ed generous grants; sa grant to  the Kinsmen heart monitor fund  helped put that project over the  top; a sizeable bursary, the Ron  McSavaney memorial, is given  to Elphinstone secondary.  The Robert Creek post office  and library renovations were  very generously helped along by  a $1000 donation from the  group, and the community is  most appreciative.  Grants were made to the  Elves Club, the Arts Council,  the music festival, the Roberts  Creek Fire Department, the  Rainbow Pre-school and to  about a dozen sports clubs like  hockey, swim, soccer, volleyball, baseball, boxing and football.  TRAVELLING NOTES  Some notes on travelling in  our B.C. southern interior: gas,  unleaded, 42 cents a litre in  Clearwater, 46 cents in Boston  Bar, and 55 cents in North Van  in a two-day period. Finally  figured out how the Hell's Gate  tram works, but not while staring out en route.

SECHELT  BOTTLE DEPOT  GRADUATION THOUGHTS  My friend Norman attended  the high school closing exercises  here and in Sechelt while he was  making one of his frequent  visits to the Sunshine Coast.  "Always enjoy the spectacle  the ceremonies provide us older  types," says Norman, and adds,  "The students always appear so  collected and self-assured, and,  I would add, unassuming.  "Well, at 18, they have the  vote, are considered adult by  the courts, but have to wait a  year before they may enter bars  and taverns. And I remember,"  says Norman, "if the occasion  calls for the service, the country  can round up the 17-year olds to  join the armed forces.  "Well, 1 guess the young folk  will have to take that matter up  among themselves to find a  resolution for it."  by Gwen Robertson  Good news and bad news in  our "Roast" Report.  It was bad news for those  who had adjusted their  timetables in order to attend the  Bruno Gerussi Roast but it is  good news for all those who  ' would otherwise have missed it.  The Bruno Gerussi Roast has  been postponed until September  and I have been advised that  there will be more notice given  so that none should miss it. It  was most unfortunate that two  of the "roasters" would have  been unable to participate but,  with more time for planning, we  should be able to have more  roasters which would, of  course, lead to more fun. So,  put your "Roast" money in a  piggybank and we will see you  in September.  SUMMER SCHOOL FOR  SENIORS  For those seniors who would  enjoy learning while they enjoy  a holiday, there are three  specials at Shuswap, they might  wish to attend.

President of the Student  Council Kirsten Kuck introduced the guest speaker George  Matthews: the students pick the  speaker and their choice was excellent.  George is the English teacher.

One hundred and  fifty turned up and not one of  them fell or was pushed into  the pool. The Morrises had the  co-operation of 10 other  parents who all agreed they  were all a great group of  young people.  Thursday was report card  day and I know one student  who was eager to see hers, and  with good cause; it was one of  her best.  1 personally would like to  thank Bob Corbett for not only teaching algebra but making  sure the students understood it  as well. Thanks to Mrs. Carolyn Kirkland who encouraged  Margaret along from shorthand  and typing to the subject she  really took to, accounting. Mrs.  Audrey Van Alstyne deserves  thanks for making learning to  cook a pleasure. I appreciated  George Matthews drawing her  out in English, Mr. Fox must  have made some impression on  Yier in history, not her favourite  subject, as her improved marks  indicate he did.  Good luck and best wishes  for the future class of '85.  LIP-SYNC CONTEST  The first Saturday of each  month there will be a lip sync  contest at the Parthenon open  to all.

AREA "B"  RATEPAYERS' MEETING  The ratepayers will hold a  meeting for the Area "B"  members on Tuesday, July 9, at  7:30 p.m. at the Welcome  Beach Community Hall on  Redrooffs Road in Halfmoon  Bay.  Gordon Dixon, Works  Superintendent for Sunshine  Coast Regional District will be  on hand to talk on the waterworks system. Water is the rnain  topic but the meeting is a  general one and other topics will  be open for discussion.  It was gratifying to see the cooperation from the water users;  with everyone obeying the water  regulations regarding sprinkling  there is enough water for  everyone.

BUSINESS AND  PROFESSIONAL WOMEN  The dinner meeting for the  Sunshine Coast Business and  Professional Women's Club  was in the form of a Mexican  fiesta held at the home of Aleta  Giroux on Wakefield Road.  Conchita Harding whose  fashions were a great hit at the  B & P's fashion show, was the  Mexican chef for the occasion,  the fare was excellent with enchiladas, spicy sauces, beans  and burritos, etc.  Swimming was enjoyed -by  the early arrivers. President  Gwen Robinson had a fine  group working with Conchita,  Marguerite' Powys-Libbe,  Florence Tait, Aleta Giroux and  others pitching in.  Everyone had a swat at the  Pinata until it finally released  the treasures of candy within.

Principal of Pender Harbour secondary, Martyn  Wilson, presented the cheque for money rasied by the students at  the Spring Fair. ���Joan Wilson photo  Egmont    News  Old reliables  by Ann Cook, 883-9167  Boy, did 1 booboo last week.  I not only slapped both my  hands but gave myself a swat on  the head for good measure.  Bathgate's Store, right in  downtown Egmont generously  donated pop and ice cream for  the kids ori Egmont Day, plus a  super fishing rod for the winner  of the fishing derby, and  bonehead me completely forgot  to mention it.  My apologies to Bob and  Jack Bathgate; if it happens  again I'll let you swat me.  It all boils down to taking  reliable people for granted.  Every year the Bathgates  generously give, without being  asked, to make Egmont Day,  Hallowe'en, and any other local  special occasion a success.  Thank you Bathgate brothers,.  Jack and Bob. We do appreciate  you.  Being so reliable maybe spoils  us, like children taking parents  for granted.  John Seabrook is another  reliable; every year he puts up  the Christmas tree, no ifs, and  or buts; then last year he was  away. I remember thinking,  "maybe we'll have to buy an artificial tree".  THIS AND THAT  Bad luck, Vi Berntzen broke  her wrist. Good luck, Vi won an  Egmont T-shirt. School's out,  everybody's happyeeeee! The  tennis court and swimming hole  are both getting a good  workout.  ROAD SAFETY  Drivers please take care  especially between downtown  Egmont and "The Logs" at  Waugh Lake where children  and their dogs are walking.  Thanks to the logging truck  driver who gives a beepbeep to  warn them that he can't stop on  a dime if some kids are foolishly  sunning on the road.  Parents, remind your  children to always walk on the  left side of the road. If we all  co-operate we should have a  safe and happy summer holiday.  HERE AND THERE  Lela Griffith with her sister,  Dr. Kay Beamish, left a bit early  from grand-daughter Elaine  Griffith's graduation.  Why? To fly across to Vancouver Island and attend her  grandson,   Alan   Hegglund's,  graduation the same evening.  THRIFT STORE  The Egmont Mini Thrift  store in the community hall has  moved downstairs for the summer once again. Needed are  clothing, footwear, books, odds  and ends for a white elephant  table, kitchen wear and  especially plants. Plants were a  favourite last summer.  Pender  clinic  There may be a deer break at  Area A Auxiliary's meeting on  June 24, but it's not  guaranteed.  Last meeting was held, as  usual, at Pender Harbour  Health Centre at 7:30; but  business halted while members  watched a deer through the full-  length clinic windows.  If the deer reappears at the  June 24 meeting, it is eligible to  join, according to auxiliary  spokespeople. All you need is  an interest in some aspect of the  clinic, and the deer seems interested in cutting the grass.  The June meeting is the last  before September. It will be a  short one, after which the  members will adjourn to the  Bargain Barn to help future  models choose costumes for a  Fun Fashion Show on June 30.  The thrift store is open  almost every day. A for sure  day is Wednesday when reliable  Doris is there with the coffee  pot on.  THE BIG CAT  Word from east Egmont is  that the Big Cat passed their  way taking a family's pet cat  and Ron's best friend, his little  dog, that wasn't one to stray far  from the beaten path.  PENDER PERSON  OF THE MONTH  This month I have a pair of  Harbourites who have, in the  past months, given a great deal  of time and energy to a task that  often tried their patience and  made them wonder why they  ever got into the job.  Two young men decided to  organize and coach a hard ball  team for boys. They arranged a  bottle drive which brought in  money for uniforms, persuaded  local businesses to sponsor the  team, and worked every week at  two games and two practices.  Our team was well supported  by parents, who drove to away  games, cheering the boys on in  victory and defeat, but it was  the coaches who argued with the  umpires, rounded up equipment  and generally kept the team in  line.  Our team didn't win the  championship, but they did improve from a gang of kids with  mitts to a real team, working  hard and playing together. So  this month, please join with me  in a big "thank you" to Darren  Reid and Alan Pollock, Pender  Persons for June.  HAPPY ANNIVERSARY  July 3 marks the fiftieth wedding anniversary for Eric and  Emmie Brooks of Francis  Peninsula,. The.   Brooks   were  married in Vancouver, and for  many years climbed every  mountain they could find. Eric  is still very active, and recently  travelled to Tibet to climb part  way up Mt. Everest. Congratulations, Eric and Emmie,  and our very best wishes for the  coming years too.  GRANVILLE ISLAND  BUS TRIP  Jack Heidema reports that  the June 20 bus trip to Granville  Island was a great success.  Forty-three people rode with  Larry Curtiss (who donated his  driving). En route, the gang was  entertained with music by Andy, Bill and Jack, and held a  contest to guess the mileage  from the Harbour to Granville  Island.  Winners were Betty Raeburn,  with the correct guess of 48  miles, and Betty and Irv Lestor  from Garden Bay. Prizes were  gift certificates from the  Hayestack. Jack is looking  ahead to a trip to the Expo site  in July, a trip to Gastown and a  Christmas Shopper in the fall.  ELEMENTARY  SCHOOL NEWS  For the third year in a row,  thanks in good part this year to  Gwen Struthers, Nancy Purssell  and Mrs. Talento's grade one  class, Madeira Park elementary  has won an ICBC award of  $350 for their safety awareness  program. Very few schools win  twice;   three   times   is   quite  remarkable! Congratulations!  Awards day at the elementary  school was an occasion for  parental pride, as students from  grades one to seven received  awards for citizenship,  academic achievement and  athletics. A special award for  the Harbour Seals Swim Club,  the Peggy Crowther trophy, was  presented   to  Brian   Lee  and  Kirsten Vader.  GOOD LUCK  Wayne Coleman has just  opened up a new business,  Garden Bay Automotive, and  I'd like to wish him the best of  luck in his endeavor. Garden  Bay residents will appreciate the  convenience of Wayne's shop,  which is located right in Garden  Bay at Sinclair Bay Road and  Hotel Lake Road.  PHSS AWARDS DAY  Thursday morning, parents,  teachers and students gathered  at Pender Harbour secondary  for the presentation of awards  and scholarships.  Many students received  recognition for academic and  athletic achievement, citizenship, and excellence in specific  subjects.  Some of the more notable  winners were Shelly Brown,  who was presented with the  Michael Klein award by Al  Lloyd, and Michael Phillips,  who   walked   off   with   an  armload of awards in all areas,  including the Senior Academic  award, the Science Council  book prize, and the Senior Male  Athlete. ;.  Joint winners of the Michael  Phillips Memorial Award (named after the late uncle of the  aforementioned Michael  Phillips) for school spirit were  Loretta Ross and MicheHe  Cochet.  John Griffith won the French  prize for the second year in a  row, while Jennifer Jones took  the Junior Academic' award,  and Diana Bryant won the  Prescesky Fine Arts trophy,  which was established by  Florence and Peter Prescesky.  The graduating class of 1985  have shown their maturity  through their excellent behavior  over the grad weekend. Congratulations to these 15 young  men and women, who will be  entering the work force or seeking post-secondary training at  various institutions.  DON'T FORGET  Tennis lessons start very  soon, so sign up for the class of  your choice at Centre Hardware.  COAST   NEW?

Oi  ,n the Sunshine Coast corporations like  'B.C. Tel are closing down service centers  and attempting to transfer those jobs and  paycheques to Vancouver. The employees  affected do not want to uproot their families  and leave the Sunshine Coast and with 35%  unemployment our community desperately  needs the wages and taxes from those jobs.  The B.C. Tel Phone Center is just the tip of  the iceberg. Our local economy cannot withstand the loss of income caused by boardroom  executives who neither know nor care about  our communities.  Ordinary citizens representing church  groups, labour, businessmen and the community in general have recently held economic  conferences and town meetings on the Sunshine Coast to try and deal with this corporate  strategy. One thing is clear. We must take  control of our economic destiny and make our  local economy more secure.  The corporations have already attacked  communities like Nelson, Cranbrook, Terrace,  Vernon and Fernie and now they're after us.  We must fight back!

Subject to be  discussed is the water supply in  the area. Welcome Beach  residents have been experiencing  very low pressure while others  find their water supply so full of  chlorine that they cannot drink  it.  Mr. Gordon Dixon will be  present at the meeting to answer  your questions and this will be a  good opportunity for you to express your dissatisfaction.  SCHOOL AWARDS DAY  Almost every parent attended  the Halfmoon Bay School  awards day on Thursday and  came away with a feeling of joy  and happiness at what their little  ones achieved. Head teacher  Jamie Davidson was just like  the Wizard of Oz, making each  and every child in his school feel  Firemen enjoy night out  very special.  Everyone was given an award  for their own particular accomplishment during the school  year. They were each recognized  for their individual attainments, .  such as improvement,  perseverance, enormous effort  and for just plain hard work.  Jamie made special mention  of his hard working and cooperative staff assistants  Katherine Kelly and Susan  Bolivar. September will see a  new teacher being welcome to  the school. Mary Anne Darney  will take up her duties at that  time and will certainly be an  asset to the area."  Appreciation   was  also  ex  pressed to the parents group  who have been so great and  have given their full support to  so many activities throughout  the school year, especially their  very successful Spring Faire.  But this writer feels that  Jamie Davidson is worthy of  much praise for the job he does  in our little school. He is a very  popular fellow with both  students and parents alike.  Long may he stay with us.  COOPER'S GREEN  In case any of you were misled by an item in another  newspaper stating that there  would be a park dedication at  Cooper's Green this week please  Please turn to page 10  ,     by Jeanie Parker, 886-3973  ��� Members of the Roberts  Creek volunteer fire depart-  : ment, their spouses and guests  J* thoroughly enjoyed their annual  dinner at The Creekhouse  Restaurant    recently.  Special guest for the occasion  was Jim Ewell from the fire  commissioner's office in Vancouver. On a serious note, he  'spoke of the difficulties encountered in providing fire projection for the community and  commended the people he had  dealt with on the Sunshine  Coast.  I The annual party for the  firemen is a well-deserved treat  as they give generously of their  time and service without payment. Chief Mulligan had, on a  previous occasion, expressed his  particular appreciation for all  the time and effort put in by the  Roberts Creek firemen searching for and working on the  truck that was stolen last fall.  By the way, the damage caused  by the vandals in the incident  accounts for any increase in  your taxes for fire protection  this year.  YARD GOODS  The Roberts Creek Ladies'  Auxiliary is looking for items  for their Roberts\ Creek Daze  yard sale on July 20. Branch  and auxiliary members or  anyone else with something to  donate were asked to phone Annie Dempster at 885-3326 or  Pam Lumsden at 885-3522 for  pickup.  MARKET DAY  Saturday morning is usually a  social time in downtown  Roberts Creek between the  store, the post office and the  library. Now there's the open  air market in the park behind  the post office to add to the activity.  Bring goods to sell or come  and look for bargains. The  market runs from 11 a.m. to 1  p.m. every Saturday until the  fall.  FRIENDLY BINGO  Many people aren't aware of  the Thursday night bingo at the  Roberts Creek Legion in the  summer. It's small and friendly  and a good place for beginners  to get initiated into they  mysteries of "crazy T's",  "frame the joker", and  "postage stamps".  Early bird bingo starts at  7:30, Bonanza at 7:45, and  regular bingo at 8 p.m. The  doors are open at 6 p.m. for the  keen ones.  POSTSCRIPT  Forgot to mention a few  items of interest last week for  the Community Association  meeting, one being the postcard  received from Regional Director  Brett McGillivray and his family on their odyssey through  Asia. He said they'd enjoyed  their first month in Japan very  much.  Mention should also be made  of the service performed for the  association by Ray Wilkinson  of Peninsula Septic Tank Service. He cleaned the septic tank  at the Community Hall free of  charge, thank you very much.  STAFF CUTS  At Don Van Kleek's traditional year-end breakfast at  Roberts Creek elementary,  farewells were extended to four  staff members. Jan Gibb's job  as library clerk has been  eliminated. Anne Skelcher,  part-time enrichment teacher,  has been transferred to other  duties. Laurie Swan, grade two  teacher, is transferred to Cedar  Grove kindergarten. And Paul  Kelly, intermediate music  teacher and preparation time  teacher, has not had his temporary appointment renewed.  The school community will miss  these four respected people and  their positions.  HOSPITAL AUXILIARY  Roberts Creek branch of St.  Mary's Hospital held their last  meeting on June 10, 1985 at the  home of Emmy Drohman on  Hall Road.

Langdale gets grant  for playground  The Langdale elementary  playground will be completed in  a week and part of the costs will  be met by a grant from the Sunshine Coast Regional District  (SCRD) under its joint use program.  The decision to allocate $2000  towards the costs of building  the playground was made at the  June 25 SCRD meeting. The  costs amount to approximately  $6000, much of which has been  raised through the efforts of the  community, parents and  children.  The grant will be made, subject to the board's receiving an  accounting of expenditures.  Robert Creek Daze  set to go  Only three more weeks to go,  and events are shaping up well  for this year's Roberts Creek  Daze.

Streetscape needs  historic pictures  Local help is being sought for  the Gibsons Landing Street-  scape project now underway.  Project leader, Ruby Buick,  is asking for old photos and information on the past use of  buildings along Marine Drive  and Gower Point Road, from  Armours Beach to the new  marina.  These historical recollections  will be compared to the  photographically   recorded  buildings as they stand today.  When completed in July, the  project, which has been funded  by the B.C. Heritage Trust, will  be on display at the All Sports  Marine building.  Those who have old photographs or information about the  old Gibsons Landing main  street, please contact Ruby  Buick at 886-8102, or come to  the display table at the All  Sports Marine building.

There are rumours going  around that the boat launching  ramp may be done away with,  but this is not so. There is now a  sign on the green that it is a  public park, but it must also be.  pointed out that this does not  mean public parking. There is a  difference.  And now that the park  belongs to all of us, it is up to  every one of us to see that it is  taken care of and not abused in  any way. It is a beautiful little  park, so let's keep it that way.  A HAPPY HOME  A very special little boy is bringing much happiness to the'  Pinkster home on Truman in  Halfmoon Bay. Little Cory is  almost six months old and  comes all the way from South  Korea.

A warm and loving  welcome from all of us in Halfmoon Bay is extended to Cory.

Those are the days when I do all the right things  and the wrong things happen. For instance, I was shopping with a  list, I wasn't hungry and I still had about 3 hours before supper time  loomed up at me.  One of the things the list said was oyster mushrooms - I had  decided I needed a treat and anyone who reads this column regularly will know I'm a mushroom freak. Of course there wasn't an  oyster mushroom in sight. I was not pleased I can tell you. I was  just about to scream when I spied a plastic package of dried up  something. And there it was - dehydrated oyster mushrooms. I  bought them and then I realized I didn 't. know what to do with them  and not an instruction in sight of course!  If you are ever in this predicament - and it's ever so nice to have  an oyster mushroom around when your steak needs an exotic touch  - this is what you do:-  Method 1: Pour tepid water over mushrooms. Leave for 1 hour  and use as for fresh mushrooms.  Method 2: Cover mushrooms with cold water. Leave at room  temperature overnight if you aren't in a^hurry; 2 to 3 hours if you  haven't so much leisure.  SCALLOPS & MUSHROOMS  1 cup scallops  % cup white wine & water  1 tablespoon chopped onion  1 bay leaf  salt & pepper to taste  1 cup oyster mushrooms  2 green onions chopped  2 tablespoons parsley, chopped  4 tablespoons butter  2 tablespoons flour  4 tablespoons whipping cream  7. cup soft bread crumbs  1. Place scallops in saucepan with wine & water to cover them. Add  onion, bay leaf, salt & pepper. Cover & simmer for 5 minutes.  Drain - DO NOT throw away any liquid.  2. Saute mushrooms in butter with green onions & parsley for 5  minutes.  3. Blend flour with liquid left over from poaching the scallops. Add  to the mushrooms and stir constantly.  4. Stir in cream & scallops. Remove from heat. Place in a baking  dish. Sprinkle with soft bread crumbs & a few knobs of butter &  broil at a low heat until golden. Servejmmediately.  BACON BAKED MUSHROOMS  2 cups - or more - oyster mushrooms  2 tablespoons olive oil or other cooking oil  4 rashes of bacon, chopped  2 green onions, chopped  salt & pepper  2 tablespoons soft bread crumbs     2 tablespoons whipping cream  2 tablespoons butter 1 tablespoon brandy  1. Remove stems from mushrooms. Brush mushrooms with oil &  bake at 400�� F for 5 minutes. Remove from oven.  2. Saute bacon gently for 5 minutes. Add finely chopped stems &  green onions & saute 10 minutes. Add salt, pepper, beaten egg,  cream & brandy. Stir until just set & remove from heat.  3. Place mushrooms upside down on buttered baking sheet. Pile  stuffing on each. Press bread crumbs over each, dab butter on  top & broil gently for 5 minutes until golden. Serve immediately.  Enjoy!

The duo later performed to a large  crowd at the Sechelt Indian Band Hall. ���Fred Duncan photo  Undercover reviews  Authentic Cinderella stories  are rare enough in real life. The  giddy ascent of local actress,  Barbara Williams, is a happy  exception to this un-romantic  fact. Through a combination of  hard work, talent and luck, she  has beaten the odds;  There was little in Barbara's  background to suggest the  direction she would follow. Her  father, Jack, who still works on  the tug-boats, was a boom-man  for many years and the family  spent a lot of time in various  B.C. logging camps. Barbara,  in fact, was born on a tug-boat,  en route to the hospital at  Esperanza on Vancouver  Island.  In 1970.the Williams family  moved to Gibsons on the Sunshine Coast. Here Barbara at-  A book for up the coast  by Betty and Perry Keller  Several weeks ago two  gentlemen heading for Pender  Harbour dropped into a local  bookstore to look for reading  material to take on their fishing  trip. "A book of charts?" we  asked. "No," they said. "A  book on the history of the coast  and islands from here up to  Kingcome Inlet. Something that  will tell us more about the  deserted settlements and Indian  villages up there."  They went away empty-  handed, because anything that  we could recommend was out of  print - even Blanchet's Curve of  Time being temporarily (we  hope!) unavailable. Now along  comes the book they were looking for: Upcoast Summers by  Beth Hill, the story of the  travels of the 26-foot Toketie in  the summers between 1933 and  1941.  The Toketie was skippered by  Francis and Amy Barrow,  amateur anthropologists,  who  <s��ftvifc _/ qftaftfeNsl  We're now OPEN for Breakfast  6:30 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.   $3-95           CHINES.

But Upcoast Summers is  more than just a record of  coastal rock-art, for the Barrows had made friends in  almost every little cove on the  coast and they stopped to buy  fresh produce, help with the  haying, or play crib on their  leisurely journeys, and they  recorded the changing lifestyle  of the fishermen, loggers and  farmers of the area.  As the Barrows' journeys  covered the same territory  several times in the eight years  of travel recorded in the logs,  Hill chose to organize the book  geographically rather than  chronologically. This can result  . in a little confusion at times if  the reader doesn't remember to  keep an eye on the date of the  log entry, but it's an ideal layout  for a book that will be carried  by.. boaters as a reference  manual when they're retracing  the Barrows' trips.  The maps provided are simple but effective in pinpointing  places mentioned by the Barrows, and the reading list at the  back of the book will give  winter fireside reading for those  who are curious to know more  about the area. The index,  however, only lists the names of  settlers; we would have preferred the inclusion of place names  for quicker access to information.  If you already have a copy of  Curve of Time, you'll find that  Upcoast Summers is the perfect  companion volume, but even  adventuring with the Barrows  alone is worth the trip. And if  anyone sees those two  gentlemen heading for Pender  Harbour again, will you tell  them about this book?  Upcoast Summers by Beth  Hill; Horsdal and Schubart,  Ganges, B.C.

Her initial  ambitions lay in this area. Barbara taught herself to play  guitar and did her first performing in this medium, using her  excellent singing voice to good  advantage.  Barbara, at five feet, six inches and 112 pounds with hazel  eyes and striking features, was  (and certainly remains) an exceptionally attractive girl. But  even in these early times, she  had much more going for her  than her looks. There was a  specialness about Barbara - a  presence. She had (to belabour  a tired word) charisma.  Barbara's acting potential  was first spotted by Gibsons  alderman and newspaper  publisher, John Burnside, then  teaching English at Elphinstone  secondary school. "She played  one of. the witches in Macbeth  as part of a class assignment,"  he recalls, "and she blew me  away."  Burnside, who was also president of the Driftwood Players,  a highly successful drama club,  and an accomplished actor  himself, encouraged Barbara to  join the group. Her first role  was a brief walk-on in Waltz of  the Toreadors. Barbara acquitted herself so well that Burnside  gave her the Elizabeth Taylor  role in Tennesee William's Suddenly Last Summer. She more  than rose to the occasion. The  play was taken to the Provincial  Drama Festival and Barbara  won the Best Actress Award for  1972. She was on her way.  The award carried a bursary  that allowed Barbara to study  drama for a year at Vancouver  City College. Her instructor was  John Gray in his pre-Billy  Bishop days. It was the beginning of a long friendship.  "Barbara was a natural,"  Gray remembers. "Tremendous  talent."  1 '   .    ,  When she completed her  course, Barbara became a  member of the innovative reper-  tory group, Tamahnous  Theatre. She worked with such  highly-talented people as director Larry Lillo,' actor/writer  Steven Miller and actress Susie  Payne. The company's eclectic  (and occasionally, eccentric)  choice of vehicles, gave Barbara  a chance to try her hand at a  wide spectrum of roles. She  played variously: one of  Medea's daughters, an upcoast  fishing-town hussy and a  Chinese peasant revolutionary,  among other diverse roles.  In 1978, Barbara had a lead  role in John Gray's truck driving musical, Eighteen Wheels.  Towards the end of her five-  year stint with Tamahnous, she  essayed an impressive and well-  received one-woman show.  Following her rewarding  period with Tamahnous, Barbara made the inevitable move  to Toronto. Here, she freelanced, dividing her time between  stagework and television plays  for the CBC.

"We  had  a  better  market  overall since the  first of the  year," said Syd Heal of Mitten  'Realty, who is also president of  ; ;the Sunshine Coast Real Estate  Association.  "Land is turning  yover to a limited degree and we  . -are even getting some interest in  ycommercial property."  ..-.' Heal attributes the improve-  -nient in both inquiries and sales  ro the public's increased confidence in the economy as a  "result of last year's change in  '.ihe federal government and to  nhe fact that interest rates on  ! - mortgages have fallen to their  lowest levels in nearly a decade.  V The   experience   of   Norm  ' Peterson of Pebbles Realty in  Gibsons    has   been   similar.  "We've seen a lot more people  coming in  from out of town  who are interested in summer  . homes."   Peterson said prices  have firmed up and there are  not as many bank foreclosure  - sales this year as there have  ��� been.  y.- However, he said, there is still  "a- low demand for developed  I lots. According to Syd Heal, the  ^Sunshine Coast had a chronic  : oVer-supply of developed lots  :#ien the real estate crash hit in  yl981.  "yin Pender Harbour, Jock  iHermon of Pender Harbour  tRfcalty said,  "Things are still  quiet up here, but people who  have been staying away in  droves for the past few years are  now just beginning to come in."  Waterfront properties,  according to both Hermon and  Heal, have been reasonably active throughout the recession.  Mortgage activity at the Bank  of Montreal, Gibsons, confirms  the slight recovery in real estate  activity. Verda Schneider, personal loans officer for the bank,  said that mortgages on housing  resales have been "more active  in the last three months".  The Bank of Montreal's  rates, which closely reflect rates  at other lender institutions are  currently: 10 per cent for a one  year term; 103/4 per cent for two  years; 11 [A per cent for three  years; \l3A per cent for five  years and 12'/2 per cent for  seven years. According to  Schneider, mortgages with  terms longer than five years  have not been available for over  20 years. Flexible prepayment  options and variable rates mortgages are now available where  they weren't just a few years  ago.  Real estate activity on the  Sunshine Coast may be in line  with that reported nationally in  the June 22 edition of the Vancouver Sun. In an article titled  Canadian Home Buyers Set  Records, it was stated, "The  Canadian Real Estate Association said 18,112 existing homes  changed hands in May under  the multiple listing service, up  11.7 per cent from April and  27.3 per cent over May 1984."  Coast News, July 1,1985  13.  Bob Jackson, a participant in the historic 1935 On-To-Ottawa  Trek, together with his son, Larry, finally had an audience with the  prime minister of Canada early last month. The two "trekkers"  described their attempt to seek relief for the unemployed of 1985 at  a Solidarity Coalition meeting at Elphinstone school last week.  ���Brad Benson photo  Ottawa trek recalled  by Brad Benson  Economic Development Commissioner Oddvin Vedo congratulates  Anne Langdon, Manager of the Sunshine Coast Tourism Association on the plaque received by the association for its involvement in  Expo. ���John Burnside photo  Bob Jackson, a 1935 On-To-  Ottawa trekker, who now lives  in Powell River, spoke to a  Solidarity Coalition meeting in  Gibsons last June 27.  In 1935, Jackson and 1200  fellow striking relief camp  workers left Vancouver on the  tops of box cars to present their  demands for "work and wages"  to then prime minister, R.B.  Bennett. However, they never  made it past Regina's Market  Square, where they were attacked by police and RCMP.  He and his unemployed electrician son, Larry Jackson,  spoke to the meeting about their  recent trip to Ottawa to seek  from Prime Minister Brian  Mulroney assurances that there  will be no repetition of the  "hungry thirties" and an official apology for the attack on  striking relief camp workers and  the citizens of Regina committed by the 1935 Bennett government on July 1.  They asked for immediate action to: 1) carry out the promise  to provide jobs through extensive capital works programs; 2)  end the restraint program of  layoffs and cuts of social programs and services; 3) guarantee  at least minimum income to  people unable to find work by.  increasing, welfare rates and  ending attempts. to! reduce UIC  benefits or itsyaVail^bUjty; "and  4) enshrine the rights of free col-  B.C. Tel protest  On Tuesday, July 2, at 8:30  ;the Telecommunications  Workers Union squares off  against B.C. Tel in a protest  against an expected lockout of  two of their workers who have  been directed to report to work  Mn North Vancouver.  The dispute has been brewing  ���for over a year. Most recently, a  '"Town Meeting" was held in  ;the Legion Hall in Gibsons on  June 6 to protest the current  -trend of B.C. Tel towards centralizing work  functions from  "rural    to    urban   locations.  .Specifically,  the meeting was  ���held to protest, the loss of two  part time jobs on the Sunshine  Coast.  The meeting of approximately 40 people was led by TWU  president, Bill Clark. Attending  as an observer from B.C. Tel's  rjianagement was P.W.  Hed-  *man, who spoke for the company during  a question and  Answer period at the end of the  jheeting.  :- The local issue stemmed from  lihe elimination of the part time  positions of an order clerk and a  secretary from the Sechelt office  last year. Negotiations between  the company and the union at  that time resulted in the  esablishment of an experimental  Mini Mart office at the  telephone company's Gibsons  central office on North Road.  Staffed with the two  employees from the Sechelt office, the Mini Mart opened on  July 1, 1984 to sell phones, take  installation orders and hand!.,  telephone bill payments.  This year, the companv  decided to close, the Mini Mart  because the company "found v  was not viable" according u  Hedman. The employees, "whe  had each been working iwc  days per week, have been of  fered three day a week position?  in North Vancouver.  The union claims the company did not give the Mini Man  experiment a proper chance: i  was not located in a high traffic  area, the Mini Mart service wa^  not   advertised   until   mid  September, and it was not givei  listing in the telephone book.  The union further claims tha  the company's offer to transfe-  the employees to part time job  in North Vancouver was no:  completely   sincere;    tha  transfers in these cases are no  always possible because of at  tachments  to  the  local  are;:  through family responsibilities.  Clark is concerned because ht  sees that B.C. Tel's advancin.  technology and centralization o-  work into urban areas is erodin,  the jobs of his members r  many communities throughou  rural British Columbia.  Though he says he does no'  take issue with the advances c  technology, Clark feels that tha  same technology can be used t<  decentralize jobs so that the  can remain in rural areas.  Hedman, in an interview with  the Coast News after the  meeting, said that B.C. Tel may  soon be doing this. He could  not be specific about the loca  tion.  Phone sales, installatio  orders and bill payments for th  Sunshine Coast will be handle 1  in the future by unmanned, fiv ���  foot diameter carousels located  in Sechelt and Gibsons, said  Hedman.  The TWU has asked that  those who wish to question the  transfer of the part time jobs to  North Vancouver can do so by  phoning the B.C. Tel public  relations department at  432-2698 or 432-2679. Those  who wish to join in the protest  are asked to be at the B.C. Tel's  office on North Road, Gibsons  at 8:30 Tuesday morning, July  2.  tPe/fffes  REALTY LTD.

Long term action was requested to build secondary  manufacturing industries to end  the reliance on the export of  natural resources and to expand  the public sector through more  government intervention in the  economy.  Bob Jackson reported that  Prime Minister Mulroney was  agreeable to the Regina  apology, but did not commit to  any action on their list of requests.  Concerning today's unemployment situation, he first  stressed that unemployment is  not the fault of the out of work  person, but that the fault lies  with the system. He mentioned  the traumas that come with  unemployment which can lead  to depression, family break ups  and even suicide.  "Though I have a son who is  unemployed," said Jackson, "1  think every family is touched by  unemployment today.  "In 1985, the call of organized labour is to help support the  unemployed."  In response to a question  from the audience asking how  the unemployed could organize,  . Jackson advised them to go to  their local Unemployment Action Centre.  As of July 1, the salaries of  -staff in B.C.'s Unemployment  SAietiori Centres willbe taken on  by   the   B.C.   Federation   of  Labour.  ; Priscilla Brown, manager of  the Sunshine Coast Unemployment Action Centre announced  during a June 27 Solidarity  meeting that the commitment of  B.C.'s unions toward supporting the province's unemployed  follows a decision made earlier  this year by the new federal  government to halt grant funding for the centres.  The B.C. Federation of  Labour has asked member  unions to contribute toward the  project. However, according to  Brown, there is some question  as to whether the level of contributions will meet staff salary  requirements. Brown has been  advised that the project will be  reviewed at the end of July.

Coast News, July 1,1985  KM  Boxers team up  Dale Walters, currently in  Gibsons with an acting part in a  Beachcomber's episode and  who was the first Canadian to  win an Olympic medal in boxing in 52 years, has contracted  the services of Canadian Junior  Boxing Champion Tony Duffy  as a sparring partner for his upcoming professional bouts.  Walters, with an amateur  record of 165 wins and 12 losses  has recently turned professional  with one win so far. On July 13,  he meets Willie Davis of Seattle  (3-1) on the Michael Olajade  (Canadian    Middleweight  Champion) undercard in the  Agrodome.  Tony Duffy's coach, Barry  Krangle, has arranged a series  of sparring sessions with  Walters over the past two years  in preparation for Duffy's major bouts. He sees Duffy's training with a boxer of the calibre  of Walters as a necessity for his  continuing progress in the  Canadian boxing scene.  Krangle says the Sunshine  Coast Boxing Club, which he  coaches, will continue in the fall  if permanent training quarters  become available. He can be  contacted at 886-9484.  Minor baseball  The regular season wound up  this week with a few surprises.  Kern's played their best baseball  of the season to finally overtake  Yarmola and capture first place  in Bronco Division. They won  six of their last eight games including two wins over the Yar-  molas.  Mark Poulsen led Kern's in  their last win, against Pender  Harbour. Not only did he help  his own cause with two hits, but  in pitching struck out 15 Har-  bourites.  The Pender Bunch were up  4-0 at one time, but Clay Munson, Travis Green and Ron  Mahoney led the hitters in a  come from behind 14-8 victory.  Super Valu's two wins vaulted  them into sole position of third,  dropping the Harbourites to  fourth.  In T-Ball action, Saans clinched top spot in the wide-open  race for first with two victories.  Gibsons Brake and Tune tied  valiantly to keep pace but ended  up only one point behind. By  having an early week loss, Elphi  Rec was relagated to third, only  one point ahead of B. Hqbbs.  In an exhibition series last  weekend, the Burnaby-  Lougheed Braves visited the  Coast and left with two victories  over local teams in the Bronco  Division. The first game saw the  Braves down 7-5 in the last inning, but five hits, two costly  Kern's errors and a squeeze  bunt, all scored four runs and  led them to an exciting 9-7 victory.  Jason Peers and Randy  Ginter pitched a good game for  Kern's. Shane Marshall and  Jeff Lightheart pitched excellent  ball    for   the   Braves.    Ron  Regional  week  Part of Expo 86 will be week-  long programs presented in the  B.C. Pavillion by people from  various regions of the province.

K  - The Don Mackay  Golf Committee  Mahoney led all batters going  four for four with two triples  and five RBI's.  In the second game, the  Braves breezed past Ken's 20-3.  Shane Marshall shut-down the  Ken's hitting attack by giving  up only two runs on one hit until the sixth inning when Tony  Smith came in to finish the  game. The Braves were led by  Stew Dill (4/4), Tony Smith  (4/4), Tony also had a home  run and Steve Gelinas (3/3).  After the game, the Braves  headed down to Mr. Barry  Lynn's home for a relaxed swim  before going back to Vancouver. They would like to  thank Linda Hickman and Gary  Trudell for organizing the  games, Mr. Barry Lynn for his  hospitality, George at Pronto's  Restaurant for the pizzas, and  all players and coaches involved  in the games. They are looking  forward to more games and  visits in the future.  Our own playoffs start with  games slated at most parks all  week at 6:15 p.m.  The^ Cedars Inn women's  fastball team made a great effort to take their winning streak  to a perfect 10 games, but fell  very short to a determined Trail  Bay Sports side.  The Auggy Auggies punished  the Cedars with a quick seven  run lead in the first three innings  but as it so often happens in our  local women's league, the tide  suddenly changed.  In the fourth inning, Cedars'  catcher, Maria Christensen,  blasted a solo homerun, sparking a Cedars comeback. Both  pitchers, Cedars' Michelle  Boriey and Marlene Longman  of TBS, faced a barrage of hits  as the final inning chugged to a  12 all tie.  An extra inning was called  and the Auggies smacked three  quick runs to the Cedars' single,  leaving the final score, 15-13 in  TBS' favour.  Placements in the league as of  last week have TBS and the new  Gibsons Ball Hawgs tied for  first, Cedars Inn in second and  Roberts Creek Legion in third.  These four teams appear to be  the sides to beat as the wind-up  tourney approaches.  It promises to be an exciting  finish this year at Hackett Park  on July 6 and 7. In previous  years the finals have often been  one sided but this year's league  closing has shown some very  competitive ball.

See story below. ���Jay Pomfret phbto  Traii Bay takes tourney  *  Trail Bay Sports were the  proud champions in the Ladies'  Softball Tournament sponsored  by Gilligan's Pub at Hackett  Park June 8 and 9. They won  three straight games in the  Round Robin play to meet the  Sunshine All-Stars in the final  game Sunday afternoon.  The All-Stars were a formidable amalgamation of players  from other local teams but TBS  were equal to the challenge. It  was a close game and Sunshine  threatened but TBS hung on to  win 11 to 10.  In the Consolation Round,  two teams from Powell River  battled it out for third and  fourth place. Scott's Plumbing  had been winning but Sunshine  Transport came back in the last  inning to win 14 to 13.  The eight teams were evenly  matched so there were some  very good games throughout the  tournament. It was good to see  the three local teams do well  against teams from Powell  River, Squamish and Vancouver. It demonstrated how  much ladies' softball has  developed in recent years on the  Sunshine Coast.  There's been a lot of action in  the local ladies' league this year.  Gibsons Ball Hawgs, Roberts  Creek Legion and Trail Bay  Sports have been jockeying for  first place since the season  opener and now Cedar's  Inn  has   moved   up   to   challenge  them.  Each team has either five or  six games left to vie for top  spot. The year-end tournament  will be held at Brothers Park July 6 and 7.

"I am in favour of recycling,  but it wasn't until things started  to formulate that the problems  showed themselves," said Area  C Director Jon McRae at the  June 25 Sunshine Coast  Regional District (SCRD)  meeting.  McRae  discussion  of a letter from "Frank Gibson,  chairman of the Area C APC,  in which opposition was expressed to the proposed recycling program, which residents  perceive as cutting their garbage  service in half.  The proposal will have garbage picked up every other week  and recyclables on the alternate  weeks. The letter suggests the  board investigate the 'desirability of having this handled by the  private sector and worked in  conjunction with the already existing recycling centres in the  village'.  At the same meeting McRae  presented a number of petitions  containing some 400 names of  Area C and D residents who are  opposed to the recycling proposal as it presently exists.  "In light of the numbers on  the petition it's clear that people  want weekly garbage pick-up,"  said McRae. "We're looking at  hundreds of names primarily in  Areas C and D. Before we commit ourselves we should sit  down and see if we can accomplish recycling without killing off the garbage pick-up."  Because of Gibsons having  opted out of the program  Gurney presented a revised  budget and asked that the board  accept it and also allow work to  go ahead on the wording of the  brochure which will be sent out  to each household prior to the  start of the program.  After a great deal of discussion it was agreed that the concerns expressed by the residents  whose signatures appear on the  petition would be addressed,  and that further investigations  would be undertaken by the  original recycling committee  which   includes   McRae   and  Shuttle  Wednesday, July 3  Wednesday, July 3  Thursday, July 4  Friday, July 5  FASTBALL SLATE  Bluenosers vs Gilligans at Hackett Park  G.B.S, vs Elpi at Brothers Park  Weldwood vs Bluenosers at Brothers Park  Gilligans vs Bluenosers at Brothers Park  Wayne Sim and Griff Francis  are to start a shuttle service providing transportation from  lower Gibsons (both marinas) to  upper Gibsons (mall).

Lugsdin hired  as co-ordinator  Continued from page 1  centre Lugsdin met Joan  Cowderoy of the Volunteer Action Centre.  "I had been the president of  the South Peace River Com^v  munity Resources Society for "���.  three   years,"    Lugsdin   con- ?���  tinued. "I felt I'd had enough   ���  of organizational work, but I,  told Joan I'd volunteer, that I'd  do anything that was needed.  Joan asked me to join her advisory   committee,   and   that  began my association with the  Community Services Society. I  am a real believer in the services  the society provides."  It was through her work with  Canada Employment Lugsdin  met Oddvin Vedo, the  Economic Development Commissioner, who identified her as  a suitable addition to the  Economic Development Commission (EDC).  "Mapping a strategy had  never been done, because of the  constraints of time and  resources. So, with the help of  Judy Gates and Barry Wilbee,  funds were found to develop the  strategy.  "I think we have to step back  and look at the whole,"  Lugsdin said. "I see the Sunshine Coast as a ribbon community with each geographic  area having its own personality,  although they all have many  things in common. We have to  preserve those differences but  we also have to work in unison.  "We need a strong community, socially, economically and  culturally. What happens often  is that the focus is on what we  don't have in common,  parochial attitudes devlop.  . "There are a lot of people  with good energy, great ideas,  and they start off strongly, but  they don't know how to work  together as a group," continued  Lugsdin. "I see my job and that  of the committee I will form, as  doing a lot of listening, filtering  the input, acting as peace maker  sometimes, or as a complaint,  bureau, helping the communication between different  groups.  "I want to teach people how  to do it themselves, how to put  the pieces together so that when  they do go to the funding agency, whatever it might be,  chances of success are high.  "An accountability system is  important too," Lugsdin continued. "If I refer someone to a  certain agency I want to hear if  the person's needs are not being  met. If results aren't forthcoming I want to be able to fix that.  "I'm optimistic about the  future of the Sunshine Coast. I  think this new position is a sign  of maturity for the community  as a whole. The SCRD is saying  that people are accepting the  responsibility for their own  destinies. "We'll provide the  tools; the people have asked for  support, and here it is.  "We're not talking about  overnight changes," she continued, "but the Alkali Lake Indian Band, who were here for  the conference a couple of  weeks ago, graphically depicted  what people can do for  themselves given the chance and  given the commitment and involvement. In five or 10 years  our community will be much  stronger."  Any individual representing a  particular sector of the community who is interested in joining the advisory committee  should contact Irene Lugsdin at  her office which is at the Sunshine Coast Regional District  office in Sechelt, or call  885-2261.

Merv now lives in Shorncliffe in Sechelt;,  though he was for many years a Gibsons resident  ���John Burnside photo  Veteran looks  back on 90 years  by John Burnside  Merv Shoebottom's ninetieth  birthday did not go unnoticed.  Thirty-one friends attended a  gathering in his honour at the  home of long-time friend  George Gee in Davis Bay on  Sunday, June 23. They came  from different parts of the Sunshine Coast and the lower  mainland to pay tribute to an  honourable Canadian and his  90 full and active years.  Notable among them were all  of the surviving senior members  of the Inglis family of Gibsons.  The late Helen Shoebottom was  the fourth child of Dr. Fred Inglis of Gibsons.  Born in London, Ontario, in  1895, Merv lived there until  1913 when he entered the labour  force for the first time as an  employee of the Royal Bank of  Canada at a salary of $300 per  year. It was the first stop of a  long and varied career which  could serve as a profile of Canadian and North American  labour history.  In 1914 Merv left the bank  and joined the post office.  In 1916 he volunteered to join  the army and saw active service  overseas with the Canadian  Field Artillery No. 5 Division.  "I was delayed in England  until 1919 after the war," recalls  Merv. "There was a shortage of  troop transportation. In fact  there were three army riots  because of lack of troop  transportation. All the means of  transportation were being used  to take American soldiers  home. It didn't sit too well with  Johnny Canuck just out of the  trenches of France."  Merv went back to work for  the post office after the war and  joined the veterans' union, the  Grand Army of United  Veterans. Under the leadership  of his former sergeant, H. Flin,  Merv joined the Socialist Party  of Canada.  "I was strongly influenced by  former Sergeant Flin," says  Merv, "and by my own experiences in the workplace."  In 1921 Merv left the post office and went to work for the  first time as a lineman. He was  working for the Ontario  Telephone Company but it was  the first stop in a career as a  lineman and electrician which  took him over most of North  America, travelling usually by  freight train'.  Interspersed with his work as  a lineman and electrician, Merv  set chokers in the logging industry in both B.C. and  Washington and, of course,  worked the harvest seasons on  the prairies, the stand-by  employment for many working  men in the twenties and thirties.  In 1922 on the prairies during  harvesting, Merv joined the International Workers of thp  World and did his first stint as  organizer in that role for that;  organization, hallowed In;  labour history. ;**\  From Los Angeles to Nory  them Ontario, Merv followed  the work. One stint in the mid>:  twenties was at a gold mine in;  northern Ontario and Merv'.  recalls without fondness work-,  ing in temperatures of 55!  degrees below Fahrenheit.       -!  "After that job finished 1  went trapping and doing  anything else I could get," says,  Merv laconically of the difficult  period of the late twenties and  early thirites. ;'  In 1935 Merv came to Van-,  couver and went to work foil  Peterson Electric. His pole part-}  ner was George Gee, just dow'rf  to the coast from Princeton^  and there began a friendship!  which has stood the tests of half:  a century. \;  The two worked together hi;  B.C. and Washington until the;  Second World War broke out.I;  "They wouldn't accept me iny  the army so I went to Ontario;;  and worked in the shipyards. Iry  was a way to show my;'  patriotism." y  After the war, Merv returned',  to Gibsons, where he had first  set up home in 1937, after being*;  hospitalized in an accident.      !  "I fell with a pole and got ���  prettly badly smashed up," says:  Merv. '���  Merv's pre-war accident had '  made him unfit for his trade as  a lineman as well as for active  service in World War II and  when he returned to Gibsons he  worked as a painter.  In 1947 he married Helen Inglis, the fourth child of Dr. Fred  Inglis of Gibsons. George Gee  was his best man, as Merv had  been for him some 12 years  earlier.  In addition to his painting,  Dr. Hugh Inglis, his brother-in-  law, recalls Merv as a clever  mechanic and carpenter.  "He built two or three boats  while he was in Gibsons," says  Dr. Inglis. "The last one he and  Helen cruised the coast in."  George Gee looks back on 50  years of friendship with Merv  Shoebottom and says: "I don't  know anyone who ever had a  word to say aginst him. He was  highly principled and extremely  well-read. He never had an :  enemy in the world except the  capitalist system."

Editor's Note: The following  was received from Brett and  Carol McGillivray who are  travelling in China.  ; AVe haven't reached the  Gulag yet, but I thought I might  drop you a line on some of our  impressions and stories in  China.  ��� We entered China via an  overnight ferry from Hong  Kong to Canton (Guangzhou)  which was very pleasant  although we didn't get much  sleep as we ran into a fellow  from Edmonton who had been  travelling for 18 months and he  had to tell us the stories of his  many scars. And believe me  there were both many scars and  many stories - and a few beer  consumed.  ; -Arriving at 7 a.m., we then  had to walk some 40 minutes to  the Chinese Workers' Hostel.  i his first walk in China was an  experience because there are no  sidewalks, no traffic lights, no  marked lanes, three-wheeled  trucks and big old trucks of the  1940's or 50's vintage, and hundreds of bicycles all weaving  their way along the streets. You  are constantly dodging bicycles  which are loaded down with  everything from the whole family to market produce.  The most noticeable aspect is  the horns, bells, and buzzers  that are continually honking,  ringing, and buzzing. One  realizes very quickly the rationale for noise by-laws, and  lines on the road and sidewalks  for that matter. However, what  appears to be total confusion  seems to work out with few, if  any, accidents.  I must tell you about the  Qingping market which was only five minutes walk from where  we were staying. Anything that  moves is for sale. Everything is  butchered on the spot and  nothing appears wasted. It was  like going to a zoo. Plenty of  snakes, owls (ranging from  small to large), badgers, eels,  frogs, cats, etc., even a fat boa  coiled up in a gunny sack, only  partially exposed.  We didn't see any dogs  though, they must have sold  them off earlier. This is definitely not a place to bring a pet. I  might also say it turns one into  seriously considering being a  vegetarian. The cattle, pigs,  ducks and chickens are butchered and hung in the open air  I Love  T ,.___���__��_ _.       _~b . lv .__���  with guts, entrails and blood on  display for sale also. Flies are  complementary.  One hears stories of the difficulties in purchasing train  tickets and in particular trying  to get a "hard sleeper". There  are mainly three classes of train  tickets - hard seat, which it is,  plus being incredibly crowded,  and in fact, you may stand for  the duration; hard sleeper,  which is not really. It is rather  comfortable except for the top  one (there are three levels)  which is both hot and stuffy.  This is the best value though;  soft sleeper - this is first class  material with four bunks in a  compartment and air conditioning, also about as expensive as  flying.  The stories of getting a hard  sleeper are not exaggerated.  After spending two days" in  lineups I was finally "allowed"  to purchase three hard sleepers  (for the four of us). We were  assured that the train would  take us to Kunming directly.  We left at 10:20 p.m. and got  settled in. The two day lineup  seemed worth it, although we  were somewhat concerned  about Meegan who had been  running a temperature around  103 degree Fall day.  Early the next morning I was  practising my charades on one  of our bunk mates in terms of  trying to find out how far we  had gone in the night and where  we were on the map. There  seemd to be a certain urgency in  which he was trying to tell us.  something, and then he called  the conductor. Fairly soon a  crowd was gathering (which  happens everywhere you stop to  The McGillivrays of Roberts Creek are photographed in Japan during their current far eastern odyssey.

They  did get the message across  however that we were well on  our way to Beijing and that we  should have changed trains  some time earlier in the morning.  Now I don't know how many  times or how many train "officials" inspected our tickets  getting on the train and even  during the night, but somehow  things got messed up. We got  off at the next community and  ended up sitting there for eight  hours. We were not exactly  pleased, but we passed the time  wandering around the local  market picking up some stuffed  "pancakes" to eat.  Now, eventually everyone  must use a toilet, and Asian  toilets are simply a hole in the  floor which you squat over. At  this train station it was less than  sanitary with a whole row of  "squatters" with no cubicles  -and rememeber to bring your  own toilet paper. Outside was a  communal tap for washing. A  trip to the toilet necessitates the  washing of one's feet if in  sandles as well as hands. All of  one's senses are bombarded at  these times.    To be continued  DR.

From Dan Campbell  Attorney General Brian  Smith recently announced a new  provincial justice system policy  concerning sexual abuse of  children.  "The new policy emphasizes  a coordinated approach to child  sexual abuse," Mr. Smith said,  "including police, Crown  counsel, corrections, ministry of  human resources, health and  education staff, and other service providers."  "Child sexual abuse is a  serious criminal offence," he  stated, "and will be dealt with  as such by the justice system."  While acknowledging that the  justice system can play only one  part in any overall solution to  the problem, Smith emphasized  that this role is a critical one.  "The involvement of the justice  system gives people the message  that such behavior is unacceptable," he said, "and can provide necessary protection for the  child."  The policy outlines certain  techniques that can be and are  being used to investigate and  prosecute these cases and encourages their consistent use  across the province.  "These cases are difficult and  time-consuming to investigate  and prosecute," said the Attorney General, "and require a  special approach by the justice  system. In addition to meeting  the needs of investigation and  prosecution, such an approach  must meet the special needs of  children who have to cope with  an often intimidating, adult-  oriented system.  "Guidelines have been Issued  to police, Crown counsel and  corrections and court staff to  help them meet these special  demands," Smith said.  Smith also pointed out the  importance of offender treatment, victim treatment and support, and public education in  this area and said that an inter-  ministerial approach to these  issues would be taken.  "It is hoped that this policy  will assist in the successful investigation and prosecution of  these cases, at the same time  reducing the trauma to the child  and to those family members  who are supporting the child."

He was referring to a report  recently received from Dan  Campbell, Chairman of the  regional district survey committee who had reviewed the SCRD  earlier in the year.  "Of the 20 districts thus far  reviewed," Gurney continued,  "this one has made the greatest  efforts in this direction, in particular as regards the water  system and recycling."  Two problem areas appear to  be the level of expense in the  planning and building inspection departments, and the level  of political comfort.  "I am personally in favour of  the expenses involved," Gurney  said, "but we'll follow through  on Campbell's recommendations to review costs. If we  determine there is a need for  further investigation after that  for most cost-cutting, we'll certainly look at it."  Directors Peggy Connor and  Jon McRae will conduct an investigation and report back to  the board.  McRae spoke in favour of the  report generally and agreed with  some of its recommendations  that the board attempt to reach  consensus in private before appearing in public meetings.  "We don't get complaints  from the public on our tax  levels," McRae continued,  referring to Campbell's  criticism of planning and  building inspection costs. "We  are constantly reminded that  our taxes are very low in  regional district areas."  "Our costs reflect the level of  service," Gurney added, and  McRae agreed, pointing out  that settlement and community  plans are important to the  future development of the community.  Director John Burnside said  that he could see some evidence  of the comments made in the  report concerning political comfort.  "Close votes indicate that we  need a fuller consultative and  discussion stage to reach consensus," Burnside said, "Our  water program shows that we  can be very successful at hammering out a good program,  that we can then sell to the  public and put into effect.  "The trouble is that with less  consultation and less time to  reach consensus we run into  firestorms when we try to rush  things. I think Campbell's  observations are very valuable  indeed in this area."  The section of the report  which deals with boundary  issues was of particular interest  to Burnside who represents the  town of Gibsons on the SCRD.  "When the Gibsons com-  'munity plan came out it became  clear that Gibsons has no grandiose schemes to take over parts  of the regional areas," he said.  "The enormous passions over  relatively   minor   adjustments  PEP gets  two more  Sunshine Coast Provincial  Emergency co-ordinator Art  McPhee announced two new  members for the Coast committee last week. McPhee said he  was glad to welcome Nancy  Prucell in a co-ordinating role  for the Ambulance Service.  Prucell has worked long and  hard hours on the disaster plan,  McPhee said, and she will take  over the position vacated by  Eric Bone.  In the role of public information will be Anne Langdon.  McPhee says he feels Langdon  will bring a good deal of  background knowledge of the  "workings of the media" to her  new post - and he sees her playing a strong role in keeping the  public informed of emergency  planning by the committee.  McPhee said communication is  one of the most vital parts of an  emergency plan and the committee is presently working on  several aspects of a Coast wide  emergency radio system.  ^   DRAW     ���  36  Prices  Tickets - only s200  or 3 for s500  EXAMPLES OF PRIZES  3rd Prize  $500 Shopping Spree  (Sunnycrest Merchants)  8th Prize  Trip to Las Vegas for 2  (Super Valu)  15th Prize  Alibi Wahoo Fishing Charter  21st Prize  Deluxe Barbeque  (Gibsons Bldg.
