 Firemen urge  g_-v.  by Brad Benson  Gibsons Volunteer Fire Department responded rapidly on Saturday afternoon to a forest fire at the.end  of Fitchett Road in Gibsons. Here a pitchy log, still smouldering, is thoroughly doused. The fire was contained before it spread on what is a residential street adjacent to the Gibsons Ready Mix plant.  ���Dianne Evans photo  The five weeks' of hot, dry  weather the Sunshine Coast has  been experiencing is posing a  serious threat of forest fires.  Unless there is rain, Greg  Hemphill, the Sechelt Forest  District's resource officer - protection, predicts their fire  danger classification will move  this week from its "high" (at  press time) to "extreme."  TThese classifications are based yony a combination of  temperature, winds, duration  andjrainfall.  Pnder the "high" fire danger  classification, fire prevention  regulations require industrial  operations such as logging and  road construction to work on an  "early shift," which means they  must be out of the forest by 1  p.m. At the highest classification level, "extreme", all industrial operations in the forest  must shut down completely.  This year's fire hazard has  been aggravated by an abnormally hot and dry five week  period following after an abnormally dry winter. The last  measurable rainfall on the  coast, according to forest service figures occurred on June 13  and 14 with traces on.June 29  and 30.  Not only is there a threat to  the forests, but to private property as well.  The five fire protection  districts on the Sunshine Coast,  which are responsible for protecting private property (the  forest service is responsible for  protecting crown land) have a  total closure on all burning, according to Mel Buckmaster,  Gibsons Fire Chief. Even in  normal conditions, burning permits are required between the  months of April and October.  The town of Gibsons just experienced such a severe shortage  of water in its reservoirs that it  would have had trouble fighting  a major fire such as at a shopping mall.  Lorraine Goddard, clerk-  treasurer of Gibsons reported  that last Friday the problem had  been fixed and that by this '  Monday, the water level should  be sufficient to fight any fire.  The water reservoir level,  which was already dropping  because of heavy residential use  in an attempt to keep lawns and  gardens green, shrank to alarming levels when one of the  pumps from the town's two  wells that supply the reservoir  broke down in early July.  Notices forbidding the use of  sprinklers and hoses were hand-  delivered to all residences. The  problem was aggravated further  when difficulties were experienced with the replacement  pump.  During the crisis, a third well,  which had been dug last year,  was hooked into the system so  , that now three wells are pumping into the reservoir.  The Sechelt forest district has  experienced eight forest fires  this summer with the last occurring at Treat Creek in Jervis Inlet on July 16. This fire was  caused by a lightning strike.   ���  Of the other seven forest  fires, Hemphill reported that  two were caused by burning  buildings, one by a campfire,  one by an escaped slash burn,  and two are suspected of being  caused by careless cigarette  smokers.  As a fire prevention measure,  campfires were banned by the  forest service on July 11. In an  effort to clarify a common  misunderstanding, Hemphill  stressed that such a ban includes  all campfires, even those set on  the beach below the high water  mark.  To prevent forest fires  created by arson, a $5000  reward is offered for informa-  Please turn to page 22  Scantech in Wood Bay  Deputy Minister grants permit  Residents of Wood Bay, near  Middle Point, were astounded  on Sunday morning, July 14,* to  see a large fish pen put in place  on the foreshore of the Sturloff  property.        y  Mac Richardsoif', whose pm- '  periy is adjacent but one to the-  site of the fish farm which is,  owned by Scantech Resources,  expressed his indignation in a  conversation with the Coast  News.  According to Richardson,  Scantech's application for a  foreshore lease went to Richard  Webber of Lands, Parks and  Housing in Burnaby, who then  received a telephone call from  Deputy Minister of Lands,  Parks and Housing, Tom Lee,  directing Webber to grant the  permit immediately.  This was done, according to  Richardson, because Scantech  said they had fish which would  die unless they were moved.  They were brought from the  May hatchery on Nelson Island.  The fish, 175,000 of them according to Clark Hamilton of  Scantech, are to be raised to go  into U-Catch-'em pens for Expo  86.  Scantech has not had any  ^^^rftgeTnent^ %;ytfteylocal  newspapers advising of their application for a permit to operate  a fish farm in this area, nor  have their notices appeared in  the B.C. Gazette. Such applications, especially where they may  be controversial or disputed by  surrounding residents, usually  come before the Sunshine Coast  Regional District Board for  their comments. This has not  happened.  "There was no Crown referral," said regional planner, Jim  Johnstone, "They said they  were short of time and had to  move the fish from another site,  so a temporary permit was  granted."  According to Richardson,  Hamilton of Scantech told him  that the company was "there  for a long time," and that the  company intended to bring in  several more pens.  The property where the pens  are situated is on the border of  Areas A and B, and Area A  Director -Ian '^ VAughan*' shares  Richardson's concerns about  the lack of due process followed  by Scantech.  "This is granting of a permit  by edict," he said in a conversation with the Coast News.  "Everyone else has to go  through environmental studies,  has to show their financial  statements, put ads in the  papers and the B.C. Gazette, go  through the proper channels."  Richardson said he will write  to Bob Gilmour, of Lands,  Parks and Housing to try to  register   his   complaints   and  those of the some 300 people he  has approached during the last  week.  "Of all those people, not one  has said they wouldn't sign a  petition if I brought it around to  ���protest this^?> Richardson .said.  '   '    ' " ' 'a'-'*-  "I didn't sleep last night, all  night there was a boat banging  against one of the pens. I suppose they could take care of  that, but if they bring in another  16 pens, like they say they will,  it's going to be awfully noisy.  "They are metal, and have to  make noise with the wave action. The property (Sturloff's)  extends right around into Wood  Bay, so I don't know why they  can't move somewhere where  they won't be a nuisance to the  neighbours."  Mayor Larry Labonte of Gibsons was among the 54 people who arrived in Gibsons on the Beachcomber Tours yacht Radiant, last  Thursday. (See story on page 12). ���Dianne Evans photo  Municipality gives more control  Ritchie favours restructuring  While the provincial Minister  of Municipal Affairs Bill Ritchie was in Sechelt last week to  sign the Partners in Enterprise  agreement, he was questioned  about several aspects of the proposed Sechelt boundary expansion which has been under study  this year and which is currently  the subject of informal public  meetings.  The minister clearly stated  that he is in favour of a  municipal structure of government over the regional structure  as it currently stands.  He stressed that the "at  large" system of electing  representatives which municipal  structures allow is more  democratic than the "ward"  system of the regional boards.  lUnder the "at large system",  the representatives on the governing body are responsible to the  whole constituency whereas in  the "ward system" the representatives are responsible only  to those constituents in their  particular area.  This means that decisions affecting a particular area may be  made contrary to the wishes of  the people in that area and  against the vote of the area's  representative.  In addition, more local control of government accrues to  municipalities in the areas of  roads and zoning.  Ritchie   explained   that  regional boards were brought  into existence to provide a vehicle for unorganized areas to  have some form of local  government. However, Ritchie  stated that his ministry, in cooperation with the union of  B.C. municipalities is currently  studying changes that will affect  regional boards, particularly in  the areas of planning and taxation.  Ritchie was questioned about  current plans for changes in the  policing cost formula that re  quires a municipality, once it  exceeds a population of 5000 to  begin assuming these costs  directly. .  This is an important issue in  the proposed Sechelt  municipality since the estimated  population of the proposed area  is 4800.  Ritchie stated that though he  could not comment publicly at  this time, the issue is currently  under study. "It is something  we have to take a look at."  Under the current system of  paying    for   policing   costs,  municipalities under 5000 and  regional districts do not pay  their share directly.  These issues are among many  that the residents of West  Sechelt, Porpoise Bay-  Tuwanek, Selma Park,  Davis  Bay and Wilson Creek will be  considering as the question of  whether or not they wish to join  in the proposed new Sechelt  municipality continues through  the process of public hearing  and the possibility of a public  referendum.  Angry businessman  protests taxes  "I feel that I want to  dynamite the whole top floor,"  said Bill Copping to the Sunshine Coast Regional District  (SCRD) board at a public  utilities committee meeting July  18.  On the top floor of his  building Copping has seven offices and two washrooms; his  water and sewer taxes have increased from $102 in July, 1980,  to nearly $2000 in 1985.  Trail Bay Mall pays $3888,  the Sechelt Insurance Agencies  pay $288, and Capilano College, $225, according to a list  released at the meeting; in Gibsons,  Copping said,   Gibsons  Building Supplies pay only $48  per year for water.  "To draw comparisons with  Gibsons is like comparing apples and oranges," said Chairman Jim Gurney, "what our  rate schedule didn't do is  recognize situations where you  have cubbyhole offices. They  are all treated as separate  residences."  Gurney proposed that the bylaw be amended to better interpret what premises are, and to  differentiate separate tenants  from multi-use office space. He  also proposed that property  owners who would be affected  by the amendment be notified in  writing and receive a refund for  the years in which over-charges  were made. The payment date  for 1985 taxes would be extended until October 31.  Director Jon McRae, chairman of the PUC, asked where  the costs incurred by this would  come from.  "Do you want to pass these  costs onto the residents?" he  asked. "Whose taxes are you  going to raise?"  Gurney responded by saying  that the amount involved was  not great, because few properties were affected, and that a  very modest increase in 1986  would help offset whatever  deficit would be incurred.  Provincial minister of municipal affairs Bill Ritchie was on the  Coast last week to sign the Partners in Enterprise agreements with  both Sechelt Mayor Joyce Kolibas and Gibsons Mayor Larry  Labonte. The agreements allow for funding assistance to the  Regional Economic Development Commission and require tax incentives for new industry. ���Leif Pederson photo  -^������^���������^--���������-���-^--���-���'���������-������������-������������"������^^  Consultants to  meet public  The team of consultants, engaged by the Sunshine Coast  School Board, will be conducting interviews on July 25, 26  and 27.

Less than a month later, Hiroshima was bombed and on  August 9 Nagasaki fell to the new and deadly weapon.  For 40 years since we have pursued the path that the explosion opened up to us and today we stand on the brink  of a catastrophe none of us in those more innocent times  would have imagined possible.  Our technology has advanced in leaps and bounds,  always accelerating in its progress. At the close of the  Nineteenth Century it was not generally believed that man  could fly; today we explore the far reaches of the solar  system, we seriously work towards a permanent colony in  space, settlements on the moon, science fiction becomes  reality.  Today it is possible, with a neutron bomb, to destroy all  the living creatures within a city without laying waste the  real estate. Today it is possible for us to destroy the planet  Earth many times over within minutes. Today 500,000,000  people in this world are suffering from hunger and  malnutrition.  There are no easy solutions; there is no quick-fix  answer. Although in some ways we are powerless to intervene and in others we can make changes, there is one  thing that remains the same, no matter what our political  colour, no matter what we see the solution to be.  That is, that we are fellow travellers on the spaceship  Earth; we are hurtling through space on the only home we  have; this is our only earthly chance. We, have to look  about us and see what we have to lose.  And that's what we have to save. When we see pictures  of our planet making its glorious passage through the infinity of space, we have to realize that without cooperation, without love and kindness, without compassion, and without recognizing the humanity that lives in  each one of us, we don't have a future.  If we don't care, and act on that, we'll lose it all.  Dianne Evans  from the file* of the COAST NEWS  5 YEARS AGO  At their planning committee meeting last Friday, Gibsons council gave approval-in-principle to development  of the 48-unit Ritz Motel at the corner of Gower Point  Road and Dougal Road.  Carl Chrismas acted as master of ceremonies at the  official opening of the new fishing lodge at Clowholm  Falls.  Over 150 Madeira Park residents turned out to ask their  water board to raise its charges to developers Sunday,  but most of them went home unsatisfied.  10 YEARS AGO  Regional Director Peter Hoemberg moves that the  regional board spend $50,000 for the acquisition of  Coopers' Green.  In what is believed to be the first venture of its type in  the province, the regional board, the village of Sechelt  and the Indian Band are meeting to initiate the development of a community plan for the Sechelt vicinity.  15 YEARS AGO  Bird Construction Company has low tender for the  construction of St. Mary's Hospital with a bid of  $599,044.  20 YEARS AGO  Tenders on five local projects on schools were $52,000  higher than school board expectations.  Gibsons water rate has been increased from $8.50 to  $15 per quarter.  25 YEARS AGO  Sechelt Lockers advertises spare riblets at 15 cents a  pound; Grade A round steak is advertised for sale at 69  cents a pound.  30 YEARS AGO  Seven tugs had trouble with log booms when high  winds descended on the area.  A local taxi driver, charged by provincial police with  bootlegging, was fined $300 and $17.20 costs.  30 YEARS AGO  First reading by Gibsons council outlined a $7,000  water main replacement program.  .Mary Drew and Molly Kennett open a bake shop in Gibsons to be known as the Cake Basket.  40 YEARS AGO  The sudden death of Doctor Keith Wray-Johnson came  as a shock to all who knew him, The doctor died in his office in Vancouver at the age of 38 of a heart attack. He  had been in charge of St. Mary's Hospital in Garden Bay.  Summer visitors out for a walk near Hopkins Landing  on Friday, July 6, reported a cow mired to its neck in a  bog. The boys who went to rescue it couldn't find it and  presumed it had sunk out of sight. The same visitors out  walking on Sunday, July 8, saw the same cow in the same  bog and finally rescued it.  This photograph was taken from the parapet on the roof-top of  the Standard Building on the corner of Pender and Howe Streets  shortly after Pier B.C. was completed in 1931. The sailing ship being manoeuvered in the harbour is the Pamir which plied in  regular trade between the B.C. coast ports and the Antipodes. I  remember once when I was on leave from my navy frigate HMCS  Royalmount refitting in Cape Breton Island shortly after VE day I  took a job unloading sacks of glue which we trucked from Pamir  to a box factory near the B.C. Sugar plant. It was the summer of  1945 and I had 45 days leave while our ship was being readied for  the Pacific War. Shortly after I went back to my ship the Japanese  surrendered. We "spliced the mainbrace" with an extra tot of  rum and eventually in October made our way home to our loved  ones. The white Empress at Pier B is one of the four that plied the  passenger trade to the Orient, namely the Empress of Asia, Empress of Russia, Empress of Canada and Empress of Japan (which  was renamed Empress of Ireland after the outbreak of hostilities  with Japan). Aorangi is berthed at Pier C and was engaged in  passenger service to the Antipodes along with her sister ship the  Niagara. In Maori language "Aorangi" means "cloud piercer".  This picture came from even an older place, namely the Vancouver Port Meteorological Office which was first opened by the  Shearman Brothers in 1905 and kept the official records for Vancouver City till 1937 when Vancouver Airport became the official  site. T.S.H. Shearman was an astronomer by profession. When  he died in 1914 his brother Eustace B. Shearman took over  weather observer duties. When he retired in 1947 former Commander Bromley took over and in 1950 when he retired, I was appointed to the position. Aorangi was one of my 'selected weather  ships* as was Waitomo, Waikawa, Wairuna, Waitemata,  Waihemo, all of Union Steamships in New Zealand and Canadian  Australasian Lines. During the Korean peace keeping mission  CPR's Maplecove and Mapledett were also weather reporting  ships for my office. In the 1950's the Port Meteorological Office  was located in the Winch Building (after Ernie Winch) at the bottom right of the picture and now part of Liberal "Jimmy  Sinclair" Square.  Caption by Richard F. Kennett  Dianne Evans  Political - but why not?  by Dianne Evans  Women from North  America, attending the United  Nations' world conference  marking the end of the Decade  for Women, in Nairobi, Kenya,  were admonished by President  Ronald Reagan to keep from  politicising the conference by indulging in propaganda and  arguing issues such as peace and  disarmament.  It is hard to imagine a more  powerful and political issue  than women's rights and the  struggle to attain them. The  United Nations reported in  1980, that women, representing  50 per cent of the world's  population, perform nearly  two-thirds of the work, receive  one-tenth of the world income  and own less than one per cent  of world property.  These figures are alarming,  and point out the imbalance of  power that exists all over the  world. And this does not reflect  the fact that it is the women  who bear the children, and do  most of the child-rearing.  Half the world's population  surely has the right to discuss  matters of peace and the arms  race; women and their children  are the ones who suffer most  from the astronomically high  expenditures on weapons which  leaves too little for other purposes.  There are numerous examples  which vividly illustrate this  point. Dr. Howard H. Hiatt,  Dean of the Harvard University  School of Public Health, in an  address to a conference held at  UBC in 1984, by Physicians for  Social   Responsibility,   quoted  some disturbing figures.  Eleven million babies die  before their first birthday; half  the world's population does not  have safe drinking water and  most sickness and death in the  Third World is directly attributable to contaminated  water.  An estimated two-thirds of all  couples in the Third World lack  ready access to family planning  services. Less than 10 per cent  of the Third World's children  are immunized against six common , childhood diseases for  which vaccines exist and five  million children die of those  diseases each year. In Kenya,  the average woman has eight  children, and does all the field  work to produce all the food.  And the problems exist not  only in the Third World. In the  same address Dr. Hiatt reported  that the infant mortality rate in  the population served by health  clinics in poverty-area, inner city districts had increased by 46  per cent. Infant and maternal  health funds had been decreased  by 40 per cent. This amounted  to a $600,000 cut in the Boston  area to which Dr. Hiatt was  referring.  A Bl bomber, of which the  United States has 34, costs, on a  prorated basis, $240 million,  more than enough to provide  decent infant and maternal care  across all of North America. It  is interesting to note that the  nuclear powers are down on the  list of infant mortality rates; in  1983, France was tenth, the  United Kingdom, thirteenth,  the  US,  fourteenth,. and the  USSR, twenty-eighth, whereas  non-nuclear powers such as  Finland, Japan, and Sweden  had the lowest rates.  Were these issues not to concern women it would be surprising. To know that, as in 1983,  $663 billion were spent on  military expenditures globally  when there are half a billion  people in the world suffering  from hunger and malnutrition is  to know that there is something  very wrong with the way we  view our fellow human beings,  and priorities which we deem to  be the most important.  It is political, that's true, but  why should we apologise for  that? Women are not in positions of power in the world,  with a few notable exceptions.  In many countries they are held  in contempt, viewed as second  class  citizens,  as  chattels  of  men; in our own country  women are frequently paid less  than men and do many of the  most menial tasks.  There are those who rail  against these inequities with strident voices, it is true, but we  need to hear about the issues.  Men and women are not the  same, and I bless many of the  differences, but we are all  human beings and we should all  come into the world with the  equal opportunity to achieve  our life's dreams.  Women one day must achieve  control over their ability to  reproduce, over their rights to  be viewed as human beings,  equally as valuable as men.  When women can walk beside  men and not several paces  behind, then all of us, men and  women, will have reached a better place.  i  t  SC-S-SB-B-CC  Dawn  uvumun;\  Maryanne's    viewpoint  _  Ecstatic bird songs pound  the hollow vastness of the sky  with metallic clinkings���  heating color up into it  at a far edge,���beating it, beating it  with rising triumphant ardor,���  stirring it into warmth,  quickening in it a spreading change-  bursting wildly against if as  dividing the horizon, a heavy sun  lifts himself���is lifted���  bit by bit above the edge  of things,���runs free at last  out into the open���/ lumbering  glorified in Jul! release upward���  songs cease.  *  asE-sssc  William Carlos Williams     M  Imaginative blueprint for peace  by Maryanne West  The Sunshine  CO-PUBLISHERS  John Burnside M.M.

I  Subscription Rates:  Canada: 1 year $30; 6 months $18; Foreign: 1 year $35  This week we will wind up  Thomas Fehsenfeld's "peace"  scenario written from the vantage point of the year 2010. His  hypothesis that by trying to  make agreements with a government we don't like or trust, we  are working backwards and are  bound to fail, is so obvious it's  easy to overlook. I also liked his  pragmatic approach, that  human nature being what it is,  peace is probably unattainable  ���and therefore he recommends  conflict management, using  areas of common interest upon  which to build trust.  How the McConnell network  got governments interested in its  ideas also offers useful suggestions for those interested in  change and getting ideas accepted.  The interview with the  Macronet Educational network  continues:-  McConnell:   "We   decided  early in our endeavour that it  was not enough to think up new  deas   and   make   logical  irguments for them. There was  i wise old politician who joined  our group, he continually asked  of each idea, 'Who has the  power to implement this? How  could they be motivated to do  so?' It was fine to argue about  what should be, but if no one  could find an answer to  George's question the ideas was  dropped.  MN: "Did he come up with  the idea of 'a program, a constituency, a coalition'?"  McConnell: "Yes. After we  had answered his questions  about who had the power to implement the ideas, we asked  what groups in society would  benefit by its implementation  and what groups could influence the policy maker. We  then searched for a way to  create a coalition between them  to get the job done. We had to  carry it one step further and ask  which groups would be opposed  to such a change and how their  opposition could be dealt  with."  MN: "Especially the armed  forces and their suppliers?"  McConnell: "Yes indeed, in a  pluralistic society such as ours,  you   cannot   simply   advocate  ideas which will put many hundreds of thousands out of a job.  New missions had to be found  for them.  "When you said that military  budgets have dropped one tenth  their twentieth century level,  you were technically correct,  ^but we still have a very large army. They are now performing  non-military missions. The  ecological disasters Of the late  1980's were the main motivation in this change. The  reforestation of the Sahara by  the American Army was one of  its finest hours.  "Today the American services are widely respected and  welcomed around the world for  their contributions to preserving  the ecosystems and aid in the  construction of transportation  and communications systems.  Their scientific work on the seas  and in space is providing us with  greater understanding of the  world."  MN: "How could a simple  computer network gain so much  influence?"  McConnell: "Numbers. We  simply recruited and recruited.  At one time we had almost  20,000 active members. This in  itself was a powerful forum of  new ideas. Equally important  were the many groups which used the network. It also spawned  many businesses. The conflict  management industry did not  exist 25 years ago. Now there  are many conflict management  data bases, expert systems programs, consulting programs,  conflict resolution centres. They  deal with anything from family  disputes to labour/management  problems to international relations."  MN: "Where does the conflict management movement go  from here?"  McConnell: "There is a  growing awareness that we must  move beyond conflict management. The techniques are now  so widely known and people are  becoming better managers of  their own conflicts. The most  progressive companies are  developing approaches to emphasize the constructive uses of  conflict. Once the connection  between conflict and violence is  broken it can be a very creative  experience." Coast News. Julv 22.1985  araty &pp&  Editor:  I am writing on behalf of the  Sunshine Coast Solidarity  Coalition regarding the closure  : of the Gibsons Service Mart.  We are opposed to the decision  of B.C. Telephone Company to  close this facility.  With this closure, our com-  rriunity loses two jobs. We also  lose the personal service provided by Barb Chiasson and Marie  ;Synnot. These two people are  Ijiot being allowed to continue  :tfieir work here. We are now  ^forced,to pay a fee or charge  ; just to pay our telephone bill.  We find that regardless of the  needs and wishes of the community, as expressed in two  "Town Hall Meetings", B.C.  Telephone Company has carried on with its policy of centralization and forced transfer  of employees.  Our community is almost  completely dependent on work  for large outside interests, like  forest companies, crown corporations and foreign-owned  monopolies like B.C. Telephone  Company. It is unacceptable to  us that these companies con  tinue to make decisions with  complete indifference to the effect their decisions have on  workers and our community.  We intend to continue to support the TWU in its efforts to  keep the service mart and the  two  jobs   in   Gibsons.-     We  believe it is time that the well-  being of workers and their communities take precedence over  the maximization of profits by  corporations.  Hans Penner  Sunshine Coast  Solidarity Coalition  Firemen give good response  Editor:  I am writing to advise of a recent experience involving a  house fire at my home. On July  6 I called upon the services of  the Roberts Creek Volunteer  Fire Department at my home in  Roberts Creek and was amazed  with the promptness of their  response and pleased with the  effectiveness of their efforts.  Within a matter of minutes the  truck was on the scene of the  fire.  It is my opinion that the fire  department is "volunteer" in  name only as the actions of the  fire volunteers and their Chief  indicated a "high degree of professionalism"  in every  sense.  I was very impressed with the  professionalism displayed, not  only by Chief Mulligan in his  giving of firm directives to his  staff, but also with the teamwork response by them.  Class re-union warmly greeted  Editor:  "Emily Fraser said it well in  her letter to you last week expressing her reaction to "coming home to Gibsons" for the 10  year reunion of the Elphinstone  class of 1975.

Anyone who wants more  details particularly those who  may be affected should phone  for all of us who were there  when she thanked the organizers of that reunion. It was a  great event!  Greeting my students of 10  years ago was a pleasant experience. They brought back  memories of the rich years I  spent teaching at Elphie and the  hundreds of students in my class  during those years.  Emily wrote, "I left with  many warm feelings about the  town of Gibsons and the people  with whom I grew up." What  she wrote made me feel glad  that I still live here and get a  chance to greet them when they  come home again - and can oc-  cassionally say hello to those  that never left.  Frank Fuller  Gibsons  Roverlander club  me at 883-9958.  Joe Harrison  RR.tfl Garden Bav  Editor:  The Roverlanders of British  Columbia, a newly-formed  group of Land Rover owners in  the province dedicated to self-  ,help between members, begs  space in your columns to help  publicize its program.  It may not generally be  known that, circa 1973, British  Leyland stopped export to  North America of its unique 'go  anywhere' Land Rover. The  resultant drying-up of parts and  service placed the owners of the  mark on their own resources  towards keeping their wheels  rolling.  We feel reasonably certain  that a few at.least, Land Rovers  are extant in your section of the  province the owners of which  could stand to benefit from our  program..  Our chief function is that of  an information exchange via a  periodic newsletter providing  sources of parts, sales & exchange, do-it-yourself  maintenance, etc., all designed  to keep the wheels turning  wherever they may be in B.C.  We cordially invite interested  readers of your newspaper to  enquire further by letter to this  address.  Rene H.

Like other taxpayers, I occasionally complain about the  "ever-increasing" tax costs.  Before doing so again, however,  I will pause and reflect upon the  value of the services such as  those provided by the Roberts  Creek Volunteer Fire Department.

His seventieth birthday was  still a couple of weeks away and  when step-daughter, Carol  Skytte, invited him to her house  for the evening he went quite  unsuspecting of anything  unusual.  About  30  guests  however,  family,   relatives,   and   close  friends,  gave him  the warm  welcome to the golden age.  ELECTORS' ASSOCIATION  The Gibsons Electors' Association is holding its first general  meeting Thursday, August 1, at  7:30 p.m. in the Marine Room  below the library.  .':;. "If you are on the list of  "voters,"   says   a   spokesman,  "please come to this meeting  for an information report on  town business, and other matters concerning the town, and  the coming by-election."  LOOKING BACK  Since the Coast News report  of Edward "Ted" Bennett's  visit to Gibsons.from his home  in Southampton, England,  some more anecdotes have  come to hand.  Les Peterson and Ted compared photos of Gibsons in the  1920's to find what had happened to landmarks that Ted knew  in his brief stay in 1924 iri Gibsons.  "He found the dock and  ramp familiar," said Les,  "although, of course, he  remembered the W.W. Winn  store at the head of the ramp  where Gramma's Pub now  stands.  "We noted a photo taken at  the time by W. Ribelin of Grantham's Landing showed 'candy,  ice cream, tobacco' lettered on  the side of the building to catch  the eye of the visiting boater,  and at the other" end of the wall  'Post Office and Telegraph',  Peterson said.  "We remembered that  By field's   Greenhouses   were  located where our present post  office building stands," he continued, "and Ted remembered  climbing the trail, now School  Road, on his way to school during the few months he lived in  Gibsons."  Ted's family had lived briefly  here, his great aunt was Emma  Fletcher, before their settling on  Sonora Island near Campbell  River.  "My father worked with  horses," Ted told Les, "and he  often told of his days on a  delivery route in his hometown  in England. The horse got to  know the route so well that my  father scarcely had to tell him  when to stop and start. Along  the route my father always stop  ped for a pint at the pub, and  when, one day, my father's  supervisor rode along to inspect  the route, no amount of flailing  or strong language could prevent that horse turning into the  pub."  While in Gibsons on this recent visit, Ted visited Robin and  Wendy Allen, of Marine Drive.  By coincidence the taxi driver  ���taking Ted Bennett from his  home in Southampton to catch  a plane for Canada said, "Off  to Canada are you? I have a  daughter in Gibsons Landing  out in British Columbia. Are  you going that way."  It's still a small enough  world.  Happy 100th  Clarice Clarkson  Mrs. Clarice Clarkson a 60  year resident of Pratt Road in  Gibsons, celebrates her one  hundredth birthday on July 24.  Born in Walsall, Staffordshire, England, Mrs. Clarkson  trained as a milliner in Birmingham apprenticing for 12  months for no pay but one shilling a week pocket money.  After her apprenticeship she  worked with her widowed  mother, a dressmaker, who  specialized in completely outfitting wedding parties.  When she was 25, Mrs.  Clarkson travelled with a  girlfriend to New York, then  continued on to Rocky Mountain House, Alberta, where she  met her husband, Bob.  After World War I they came  to B.C. to look around and  after travelling to lots of places  on Vancouver Island, visited an  area on the mainland advertised  as a soldliers' settlement, where  they fell in love with an eight  acre parcel on a country lane  called Pratt Road.  The Clarksons kept eight  Toggenberg goats which provided milk for butter, devon cream  and three cheeses which annually won prizes for Mrs. Clarkson  at the Farmers' Institute fair.  Mrs. Clarkson is sure it is the  goat's milk which has built up  her strength and contributed to.  her longevity. Mrs. Clarkson  lives in the same house on Pratt  Road today, attended by a  homemaker daily.  This wonderful lady's  humour, spirit and health are  blessings which many of us  would wish to share. Happy one  hundredth birthday Clarice  Clarkson!

WILSON CREEK LIBRARY  The Wilson Creek Library is  still in operation Fridays and  Saturday afternoons, thanks to  some fine people who contribute their time and  knowledge to serving the area of  Kolibas /  Lugsdin  meet  Mayor Joyce Kolibas, in her  report to Sechelt council last  week regarding her meeting  with Irene Lugsdin, the newly  appointed community development officer, said that she likes  Lugsdin's idea of getting the  various communities on the  Sunshine Coast to work  together. "I told her I would attend meetings (in support of  this)."  Alderman Pressley reported  that, as a part of Expo's promotional efforts, a mailing has  gone out to 35,000 aircraft  owners in the Pacific Northwest  listing facilities available in the  lower mainland, including the  Gibsons-Sechelt airport.  Concern was expressed about  the lack of transportation  facilities at the airport should  the Coast suddenly experience a  large number of these visitors.  Alderman Craig suggested a car  rental service might possibly be  set up by local business and that  Coast Taxi could station a car  close by.  Both Alderman Craig and  Alderman Short complimented  the work of the Challenge 85  summer students hired by the  village to work on Kinnikinnick  Park.  "We're very impressed with  how they are working," said  Short. The crew has been taken  out of Kinnikinnick Park and  assigned chores around the  village because of the current  fire hazard.

Now that the summer  holidays are well underway you  sometimes find that the young  folks are getting a bit bored and  complain about having "nothing  to do!".  In this case you should find  out more about the Summer  Arts Carousel in Sechelt which  runs from July 29 right through  to August 16 from the Shadow  Baux Gallery on Cowrie Street.  There are programs for children  from three years of age right  through to teens and adults.  Some very highly qualified  teachers will be here for painting and drawing, children can  create a mask from clay and  paper mache and learn how to  develop a character from the  mask.  Young people interested in  acting will enjoy a drama program, there will be creative  movement, music and song,  and there is a program of im-  provisational dance for teens  and adults.  For those of you who like  working with clay there is a  hands on participation of  students making their own  pieces which will be fired later.  There is something for absolutely everyone and if you would  like further information and  details call 885-7606.

WRITERS' FESTIVAL  Tickets are beginning to  move for the Festival of the  Written Arts in Sechelt on  August 16, 17 and 18. Among  the scheduled speakers are such  well known personalities as  Peter Gzowski of CBC's Morn-  ingside radio show, the famous  Money's Mushroom Man,  James Barber, children's  novelist Joan Clark, to name  but three of the many speakers  scheduled.

In  Gibsons you can pick them up  at the Hunter Gallery.,  COMPLAINT WEEK  This has been a week when  yours truly has been at the  receiving end of the phone  listening to and promising to  pass along several complaints  from Halfmoon Bay residents.  One caller was completely  frustrated over the lack of action in the long promised cleanup of the bay by Mac & Bio.  He descrdibed the situation as  "disgusting", the smell  unbearable, particularly with  the low tides and warm weather.  Another caller wants attention paid to the fact that a fish  farm suddenly appeared in the  Woods Bay area, while someone  else wondered what good a picnic park at Coopers' Green is  without any picnic tables.  LOOKING FOR A BIKE  If any of you good readers  happen to have an exercise bike  lying around unused would you  please give me a call in the evenings. Therapy for my leg injury  calls for such an item and I  would appreciate either borrowing one for the next few months  or buying a used one if the price  is right. \.a*  * "TT '1 T���?'*"? ���7"' "  68BSOf��S MDIM .

W$3^i&0$^:  m&&^W^00  Talent  Contest  Six years ago when Dan  Tohill created what is now an  annual Sea Calvalcade event,  the Great Sunshine Coast  Talent Contest, he did so  because, "I play music at home,  but I had no opportunity to play  in public.  "I was a closet musician. So I  came up with the idea of  presenting a forum for those  like me to perform in public."  This year's event, scheduled  . for this Friday, July 26, at 8  p.m. on the Gibsons government wharf, should prove to be  as entertaining for both audience and performers as past  years' events have been.  Performers are asked to be  on the wharf at 7 p.m. to sign  up. Registration fee is $2 andi  each act will be limited to five  minutes. Only the first 20 performers to sign up will get their  chance to enjoy the traditionally  enthusiastic audience.  First, second and third place  winners, which will be chosen  by the audience themselves, will  win prize money of $125, $75  and $50. The winner will also  walk away with the coveted  CBC Beachcomber Trophy. But  only for a year - it must be  brought back and passed on to  the next year's winner.  A stage, sound system and  lighting will be provided. Each  performer must have their own  accompanist. ;  A special event that will again  be presented this year is the  "Worst Singers Contest". This  will give absolutely everybody a  chance to participate. The prize  for this popular torture is a  lasagna dinner at the Omega  Restaurant.  This year Dan Tohill is going  to be asking the audience to  donate "the change in your  pockets" to help defray the  costs of the event. The $200  received from the Sea  Cavalcade Committee is not  enough to cover advertising,  prize money and miscellaneous  expenses. \  Tohill would like to thank  those people behind the scenes  who have helped over the years  to make the event a success.  When asked if he was going  to come out of the closet again  , this year and perform in the  Great Sunshine Coast Talent  contest, Dan Tohill, who was  Mr. Roberts Creek in 1982 said,  "You are not going to get away  without me playing my accordion."  Chamber  says  'Thanks'  The Gibsons Chamber of  Commerce would like to thank  everybody who supported and  helped out with the July 1  "Salute to Youth" Canada Day  celebrations.  Special mention is given to  Murray Wilson for the job of  co-ordinating, George Cooper  for looking after the Trivia  Contest, Reverend Alex Reid  for his part in the dedication of  the new tourist centre, Fred  Mason, John Reynolds and  Johnny Smith for the fireworks  display and Fleetline Industries  for transporting the fireworks.  The chamber also extends a  special thank you to everybody  who donated both time and  energy as well as those who contributed materially in the construction of the centre.  A special plaque naming all  the individuals who contributed  is in the process of being  engraved and will be mounted  on the wall inside the centre.  According to chamber  manager, Verna Sim, interest in  the centre is fantastic, with the  number of tourists coming  through each day breaking all  previous records.  Membership in the Gibsons  Chamber of Commerce has  been growing steadily and now  stands at 74.  Latest to join were the  Beachcombers, Beachcomber  Tours Ltd., R. Harding & Son  Ltd., the Sunshine Coast Trailer  Park, Pebbles Realty Ltd., and  Wahoo Enterprises Ltd.  The chamber's goal of 101  members must be met by  August 15 in order to qualify  for a government grant.  Those who have been considering joining are urged to do  so now by contacting Verna  Sim, chamber manager at  886-2325.  > 10.

Coast News, July 22,1985  -You can't be too young to enjoy the many thrills of Granthams  Landing.  ���Leif Pedersen photo  Beachcomber Tours  A beautiful trip  "A beautiful trip! The crew  " was excellent, there was a running - commentary   on   what  you're seeing,  the wind and  . weather conditions, sights in the  Sound,   everything,"   Verna  ������ Sim, of the Gibsons and area  chamber   of  commerce,   was  ~ commenting on the first trip by  Beachcomber Tours which arrived in Gibsons on Thursday of  last week.  "If I had relatives coming from  out of town I'd totally recommend they do the tour," she  continued, "or from next  weekend, that ^they take the  : Gibsons Harbour and Howe  Sound Tour which will be starting then."  There were 54 people on  board for the tour, which began  in Vancouver at the Westin  Bayshore Marine. They included Expo representatives, the  Director of the Southwest B.C.  Tourism Association, representatives from Perimeter  Transportation, travel agents,  hotel representatives and  members of the chamber of  commerce, as well as Mayor  and Mrs. Laurente Labonte.  The Beachcomber Tour idea  is the brainchild of local man,  Clint Suveges who is understandably excited about his new  business. The tour, which takes  eight hours, is made aboard the  Radiant and the luxurious yacht  cruises past Stanley park, under  the  Lions  Gate  bridge,  past  Point Atkinson lighthouse, and  on into Howe Sound.  On Thursday the Beachcombers film crew was shooting  in the Keats Island area, so the  passengers had a chance to  watch the proceedings from on  board. The yacht pulled into  Gibsons shortly before lunch,  Molly's Reach, home of the  Beachcombers, was the first  stop on shore.  Lunch, which is included in  the cost of the tour, is served at  the Omega in downtown Gibsons, and after lunch the  passengers have a chance to  shop and wander around the  lower Gibsons area before  heading back to Vancouver.  The cost of the tour is $49 per  adult, $44 for children, Those  under five years are free.  Next weekend the tours of  Gibsons and Howe Sound will  begin. These last for and hour  and a half, and will cost $9 for  adults and $7 for children and  seniors. Again, children under  five are free.  Tickets for the Harbour and  Howe Sound are available at  Richard's Men's Wear in Sunnycrest Mall, at the tourist information booth in Pioneer  Park, or may be reserved by  calling 886-8316.  To reserve or enquire about  the Beachcomber . tour, call  662-7511 or drop in to the  tourist information booth.  CBC at Council  "It appears there's no good  time to film," said Joe Battista  in describing the CBC's efforts  to satisfy the diverse scheduling  needs of Gibsons merchants.  Alderman Peterson countered that, "it's not just the  businessmen, but we've had a  number of individual taxpayers,  complaining."  Complaints include blocking  traffic for prolonged periods,  while ferry traffic is waiting, as  well as filming on busy weekends.  Said Mayor Labonte,  "they've been there for 13  years, so I'm sure there's  something we can do."  The matter was referred to  the planning committee, who  set 10 a.m. Monday for a  meeting to work out a filming  schedule that would be satisfactory to all parties. Sheila Kitson  of the chamber of commerce  will be asked to attend.  In other matters Gibsons  water .supply is still problematic  with the Dougal Park well  operating with a rented pump  and number three well still not  on stream.  It should be solved soon, but  council was concerned enough  to ask Ralph Jones to look into  the cost of purchasing a standby pump.  A taxpayer who was penalized 10 per cent for late payment  of taxes appealed to council to  return his money. The cheque  was in the mail on time, but the  town received it 10 days late.  No postmarked envelope  could be produced, and the  planning committee chose to  keep the money..  There was an error last week  in reporting on the sign by-law.  The old by-law is being enforced until the new one is in place.  Roberts Creek Daze  Saturday night saw the  crowning of the new Mr.  Roberts Creek, this year Larry  Knowles, or "Mr. Flame" as he  called himself for his very funny  performances.  Congratulations too, to all  the other contestants who put  together an entertaining evening  of fun and silliness.  The Hall Committee would  like to thank everyone who  made the evening a success and  to apologize to all those who  wanted to attend but were  unable to do so because of lack  of space. The hall can only hold  so many,  and the fire chief  keeps a strict eye on numbers.  He was one of the judges this  year, so we couldn't get away  with over-crowding anyway.  There were some delicious  chocolate cakes and fruit pies in  the baking contest at Robert  Creek Daze. The winner of the  chocolate cake category was  Mardy, with runner-up, Anne  Mackie.  The winner of the fruit pie  category was Debbie Tate, with  runner-up Donna Shugar.  The chocolate cake winner in  the children's category was  Sarah Tate.  Speech therapy  program cut  Budget cutbacks both in the  school district and the ministry  of health will alter the way the  speech therapy program is administered in this district, but  Superintendent Denley assured  the school board, we will still  have two therapists next year,  one in Sechelt and one in Gibsons. The school district will  supply the buildings, secretarial  assistance and one therapist, the  other will work for the ministry  of health.  This service provides help for  children from - pre-school age  with a wide variety of speech  problems and for adults, mostly  stroke victims and their  families.  As of the end of May the  Sechelt clinic had a waiting list  of 64 while there were 56  registered with the Gibsons  clinic.  Secretary Mills reported there  was just enough money  budgeted to meet the district's  commitment. "It's not a super-  marvellous deaj," he said, "but  a fair trade off."

Four  different plays will be presented over a two and a half week period.  ���Brad Benson photo  Summer Plays  come to Gibsons  In the films of the forties,  Mickey Rooney always seemed  to be saying to Judy Garland,  "I know! Let's put on a  show!", and in the very next  scene, there they would be, - a  cast of hundreds, all with lines  learned, costumes made, lights  in place, staging built and  belting out a song that brought  the show to a happy conclusion.  That's Hollywood!  In Gibsons, several months  ago, Betty Keller said to  members of several local theatre  groups, "Let's put on a show",  and all the same activities concerning lines, costumes, lighting  and staging have taken place,  but at a more frantic pace than  Hollywood would indicate.  Thanks to a lot of work from a  lot of people, the Summer Play  Parade is ready to go.  This is the first attempt at  repertory type theatre in Gib  sons. It starts on Monday, July  29 and offers something for'  everybody. The first play, The  Ladies' Tailor is a repeat performance of the French farce  which played so successfully in  Gibsons several months ago. An  Evening with Pauline is a two-  person play based on the life of  the Indian poet, Pauline  Johnson. It is written and  directed by Betty Keller.  Confusions is a British comedy from Alan Ayckbourn. It  consists of several one-act plays,  all designed to tickle the funny  bone. Finally, Mr. Poe, a one-  man show on the life of Edgar  Allan Poe will star Bill Murdoch.  The plays run to August 15  and will all be presented in the  upper floor of the Elphinstone  Pioneer Museum in lower Gibsons.  f  PENDER HARBOUR  &AREA  COOKBOOK  Favourite recipes by  local cooks using local  fruits, vegetables, seafood  & wild edibles.  $6.95  ^ Cowrie St. Sechelt      THE BOOKSTORE       885-2527J  me  ENDS TUES. 23  WARNING:  May frighten very young  children. .Some coarse language.

The reasons for this  are obscure but certainly, the  relative ease (until recently) of  obtaining Canada Council  Grants, has a good deal to do  with it. While the council has  much to its credit, it has also  been instrumental in upsetting  the process of natural literary  selection, creating an enormous  pool of merely adequate and  even bad poets. This has  resulted in a continuing glut of  merely adequate and even bad  books that clutter the shelves of  those bookstores that still deign  to carry them.  Above this huge rabble of  poets who occupy the various  levels of the middle-ground (I  must   number  myself among  them), stand the true giants of  the genre, the major poets, the  writers whose talents are such  that they probably would have  achieved  this  stature in  any  country, in any age. Exactly  which poets belong in this exalted category is open to argument, there are a good many  borderline  cases,   but  certain  names are indisputable: Earle  Briney, Dorothy Livesay, John  Newlove,    Milton   Acorn,  Leonard Cohen, Margaret At-  wood, to cite just a few. Among  this elite group, the name of Al  Purdy ranks very high indeed.  Purdy  is  a  unique  figure  among major Canadian poets.  A tall, rawboned man of United  Empire Loyalist stock, he was  born  in  Wooler,  Ontario in  1918. School did not intrigue  him and he dropped out in  grade   nine   to   commence   a  knockabout   existence.   Purdy  first saw the West Coast when  he rode the rods to B.C. at 17.  A voracious and omnivorous  reader, Purdy began to write  poems at an early age. Like  most self-taught poets, be began  at the simplistic bottom and  worked his way up. Bliss Carman was an early hero.  During World War Two,  Purdy joined the Air Force. It  was hot a distinguished career!  In 19-44, while still in the RCAF,  he published, at his own expense, his first book, The Enchanted Echo. As far as literary  debuts go, it was not an  auspicious one.. The tripping,  Carmanesque meters and clich-  ed themes, showed little promise. (In later years, Purdy attempted to hunt down all copies  of this fledgeling effort and  destroy them. But a few still exist like naive precursors of the  fine work to come).  During the next 11 years,  Purdy lived in and around Vancouver, working at various  jobs. He served five years at the  old Advance Mattress Factory,  the subject of some fine, later  poems. He also married his  wife, Eurithe, who still shares  his life. Poems continued to  preoccupy him. Purdy published some of them in such places  as the Canadian Poetry  Magazine. His style was still  stiff but it was definitely evolving.  And presently the red leaves  were brushing my side/Falling  and falling under the red  stain/Flooded the world. But I  remembered apple blossoms/  Acorns and chestnuts. I  remembered the rain.

Lang, at the  time, was considered a much  more promising poet than Purdy by many people. Together,  they often visited the bibulous  writer, Malcolm Lowry, at his  Hollarton retreat. When Lowry  recalled these visits in letters it  was obvious that he considered  Lang the better poet. He could  not have been more wrong.  Lang, today, is a dedicated  businessman who has totally  turned his back on poetry and  the arts in general.  Purdy's second volume of  verse did not appear till 1955.  Entitled Pressed On Sand, it  was part of the Ryerson chap-  book-series. Sand was a marked  improvement on The Enchanted Echo. While Purdy was  still largely adhering to rhyme  and meter, he was obviously  finding his true voice. The manner is much more natural and  there are many indications of  the poet to come.

TEL &  A member of Telecom Canada McGillivrays on the move  Coast News, July 22,1985  by Brett McGillivray  We were in a poster shop  yesterday and we purchased a  few posters and a Chinese map  of  the  world.   Notice  that  I  didn't say a map of the world in  Chinese. The stress on the  former is made to get across the  concept of China being the centre of the world, whereas most  maps in North America have  North and South America as  the centre and Asia off to the  far side.  Now this concept of the centre is an interesting one because  in North America one frequently refers to ancestry - Scots,  Irish, Italian, etc. - which, of  course, means all of us were immigrants at one time or another.  Even the Indian and the Inuit  have a history of migration. But  not the Chinese. They come  from China, and always have.  Chinese mythology has China  as the centre of the world. It  may be a correct view.  Since you enjoy stories, as I  do Burnside, let me relate to  you the one I heard of the journalist travelling through a rather  remote area near Xian in the  mid 1970's. The western journalist's interpreter informed  him that he may be the first  westerner to ever visit this  village. The village elder was  asked to verify if this were so.  Now here is a man who looked well into his 90's, stooped  over, no teeth left, wrinkled,  but eyes that were full of  knowledge. The westerner and  the old man stood looking at  each other for an exceedingly  long time - but this was not a  silence that was awkward or  embarrassing, rather one of  reading each other's thoughts.  Finally, the old mairnodsiris  head and says through the interpreter,    "Yes   there   were  JOPPE'S MESSAGE:  For experienced antique  restoration and repair,  contact me today.

The old man shakes his  head.  "Was it the Russian advisers  during the 30's?" Again, the  old man shakes his head.  "Was it the British after the  turn of the century?" The old  man still shook his head.  At this point the journalist is  unable to recall any period of  history where westerners may  have visited this part of China.  Finally the village elder says:  "It was two European traders  during the middle of the Quin  Dynasty." The interpreter then  adds1, "and that means around  1800".  You see, the history of each  village has been passed on in the  oral tradition so that the total  history of the village is part of  the old man's experience - as if  he were there nearly 300 years  ago.  It's a great story of stability,  and again the concept of being  the centre in an unchanging way  of life. Quite a contrast to the  lifestyle and mobility of North  Americans.  I must close and get this off  to you - impressions of China,  plus a few stories.  Meegan has fully recovered  from whatever she had. Carol  and Jake appear to have colds  at the moment, but these are  minor problems.  Hopefully, all goes well on  the Sunshine Coast, we do think  about home often.- Keep  pushing the recycling!

A living legend in the world  of Rhythm and Blues, accompanied by one of the most successful female vocalists in  popular music, appearing right  here on our, er..stage?  Yes, be there br be square!  Baldry, born in England in  1941, rose through the ranks of  young Englishmen who were  absorbing American rural blues  and regurgitating mesmerizing  rock and roll to take his place in  music history.  Eric Clapton proudly admits  to taking up the guitar after  watching Baldry perform at a  neighbourhood community centre in 1959.  Rod Stewart was sitting in a  dark railway station playing a  harmonica to keep warm one  midnight when Baldry discovered him in 1964.  Reginald Dwight was pianfet  at a favourite haunt of Baldry's'  when asked to join the star's1  hew'"band   in    f9667' When*  Dwight left the group two years;  later he took one name fronji4  saxophonist   Elton   Dean  and  one from Long John and the  rest is rock and roll history.  Stories like these go on and  on, for Long John Baldry is the  central figure of the English  Blues scene.  His second tour of the United  States and Canada in 1971 included Carnegie Hall.  In 1978 he worked very hard  putting together a documentary  for radio called "The History of  British Rock", which was syndicated across North America.  Baldry became a permanent  resident of Canada in 1980, and  did a solo performance at the  gala opening of Toronto's Cafe  on the Park.  His co-star, Kathi McDonald, has a similar history of star-  studded associations.  Since being discovered by Ike  Turner one night at San Francisco's Fillmore West (when he  heard her, sitting on the floor in  front of the stage, singing along  with Tina and asked her to join  the band). Kathi has worked  with Joe Cocker's Mad Dogs &  Englishmen show, Leon  Russell's Shelter People, Elton  John, the Rolling Stones and  many others.  But, with Baldry, she has  found her.match professionally.  They had a hit with "You've  L,o'st That Loving Feeling" in  1979 and continue, to develop  their dynamic relationship on  stage and recordings now.  With accompaniment from  two fine Vancouver musicians,  this should truly prove to be a  memorable event at the West  Sechelt pub.  Dates are July 25, 26 and 27;  tickets are $7.

It all happens on August 1, 2  and 3, at the Roberts Creek  Hall, set in cabaret style, with a  9 p.m. start. Tickets are only $5  per person per night, or $12 for  a tournament pass.  Special prizes will be awarded  during the tournament, some  even to members of the audience who show outstanding  support for their team.

Pender People 'n' Places  SFU Summer Institute  by Joan Wilson, 883-9606  School is out for the kids, but  class is in session for the 41  adults enrolled in Simon  Fraser's Summer Institute for  Environmental Education,  housed again in Pender Harbour secondary.  Staff at this third year of the  program include Doctor Milton  McClaren, marine biologist  from SFU, and Doctor Bob  Samples from the University of  Colorado, Other resource people who have been invited to  share their skills are Brian Her-  rin from West Vancouver,  recently honoured as "Outstanding Elementary Science  Teacher" in B.C., and Sechelt's  own Jamie Dixon, who led their  expedition to Chatterbox Falls  and Deserted Bay, site of the  former Native Environmental  Studies program.  Jamie took the group to see  the pictographs and gave them  the native history of the area.  Coming up next is Harvie  Walker, who will lead urban  studies in Sechelt and Gibsons.  The Summer Institute is a  credit course from Simon Fraser  and students may be teachers,  either practising or in training,  recreational workers, people involved in forestry or fisheries,  or those interested in improving  their outdoor education skills.  The course involves theory as  well as field studies, out trips  and individual projects. Some  former students are Mike Metcalfe of West Sechelt elementary, who taught at Madeira  Park a few years ago, and the  Coast News' own Jane  McOuat, now a full time student at SFU.  Sheila Luetzen, principal at  Bowen Island community  school, is an official staff  member. "Pender Harbour is  ideal for this kind of a program.  The variety and beauty of the  area provide every kind of experience we need."  How has the Harbour  responded to the Summer Institute? "Great!" replies Ms  Luetzen. "People are friendly  and very helpful. When we arrived, we found a "Welcome"  sign at John Henry's. Students  bring business to the Harbour,  buying their food and supplies  locally. We've been more than  satisfied." Harbour people obviously know how to put out the  welcome mat to visitors, many  of whom will return for  holidays in the future.  Students at the institute have  served the harbour in return.  Recently, a group of canoeists  : spotted a fire on a small island  in   Sakinaw   Lake.   Using   a  : bucket brigade under the direction of one student who is. an  ���experienced fire fighter,  they  put out the blaze, which otherwise would have swept the entire   island.   Other   students  helped with the Triathlon on July 13, as spotters for the swim  section or manning the various  checkpoints along the route.  Pender Harbour is glad to  host the Summer Institute again  this year. We hope that we'll see  you back again in 1986!  EXPO TRIP  After the success of the Granville Island trip, Jack Heidema  has put together a day trip to  the Expo 86 Dome, with its two  theatres and many displays. The  bus leaves Madeira Park at 7  a.m. on July 31, returning on  the 3:30 ferry. Cost is $12 for  seniors, $14 for others. Call  Jack now at 883-9973 to reserve  your seat.

We also carry Sunshine Coast  maps, the hand-painted cloth  roll-up type that is easy to mail  or tuck in a bag. Dorothy Silvey  makes them so we can call them  local handicrafts.  Thank you to all the people  who have been sending donations to our store. Nearly all  proceeds go back into the community to help make Egmont a  better place to live.  The old hall is getting a paint  job this month. I say nearly all  proceeds as we still haven't  figured out how to cut down on  that $1200 a year insurance bill.  ..���&&'%&���&.-.&:���  BITS & PIECES  I saw two crime stoppers.  Remember I said what a crime it  is the way people litter the roads  with paper, bottles, cans, etc.?  Well., there on the highway  were two crime stoppers with  bags picking up cans and bottles. Not only does their area  benefit by looks but a group like  the Guides or Scouts are given  the money-refund containers.  FIRE CARE  Be very careful with any kind  of fire, be it a match, cigarette  butt or those briquettes that  look like they are dead. We  don't need another forest fire.  MONDAY DELIVERY  An Egmont complaint is that  we always get last delivery on  whatever; but it's not the Coast  News these days.  Just try 'phoning a friend  down the road and saying, 'Did  you read in the Coast News this  week?'...and they'll cut you off  with, 'Have you got your Coast  News already?'  With a little delivery vehicle  co-ordination the Coast News is  in our big post office by noon  Monday.  So, if you have a windsurfer  to sell, put it in next week's  classifieds, as there's a buyer on  North Lake watching for your  ad.  HAPPY BIRTHDAY  Happy Birthday Betty Silvey  and Coast News. Next Monday  you can give K.S. the royal  bumps.  BACKEDDY NEWS  Kristi Hately works there,  also Carrie Hillhouse, Brenda  Silvey, and Noreen Marshall.  I'm watching Joe to see what  he does from 6 a.m. to mid-  night.  There will be another Joe at  the Backeddy this weekend to  entertain; not only to sing and  play the guitar, he's a comedian  as well. Sounds good.

Eagles take off  by John Hind-Smith  Early oh the morning of July  17, the two young eagles took  off from their nesting tree for  the first time together. Looking  at this from a human standpoint  this would have been a very exciting moment in their young  lives but I guess for them it was  just another step towards their  independence.  For days the two had sat in  the tree which had been their  home since the day they took  their first look at the world  from a chick's eye view.  Occasionally flapping their  wings and climbing from one  branch to another, they made  plaintive calls in answer to their  parents' admonishment to "get  off your feet" (or bottom as the  case may be) and get into the  element in which they were  designed,to excell.  This morning was different.  Mother or father bird decided  that enough was enough.  She/he dove down at the  nesting tree and scared the  daylights out of their offspring.  First one and then the other  took off and, with apparently  effortless movements, gave a  beautiful example of gliding,  soaring, and a little wing flapping just to keep control.  For 15 or 20 minutes they  demonstrated their new found  skills to proud parents and then,  seconds before coming to rest  back in their old familiar spot,  they let down their undercarriage and with claws extended  made a beautiful two point  landing.  I'm not too sure what human  parents do when their offspring  take their first steps, probably  crack open a bottle of  something, but I'm sure they  could not have been prouder  than my eagle friends, watching  their youngsters perform for the  first time with such skill and  precision.  Lesson number one is now  over and the next thing will be  to teach the young birds how to  fish and be self sufficient. I am  sure mother's apron strings will  be there to hang on to for a little  while but the time will come  when Jack and Jill, Romeo and  Juliet or Samson and Delilah  will break away from ma and pa  and like their human counterparts take off into the world  and find out what life is all  about for themselves.  .-V-limi'.'.TtT^-JI  p  Quote of the Week  "If religious beliefs and opinions are  found contrary to the standards of  science, they are mere superstitions  and imaginations."  ���Baha'u'llah.

B.O.TEL ��  A member off Telecom Canada Coast News, July 22,1985  Young Adam Thomsen learns how to serve with some help from  his instructor Peggy Stacey, who is presently giving lessons in the  Pepsi-Wilson Minor Tennis League.  Tennis tips on serving  How to throw  by Ron Knight  Does your first serve often hit  the net? Likely, you're not using the proper "throwing" motion of your racquet.  Juniors in the Pepsi-Wilson  Minor Tennis League practice  throwing like an outfielder  rather than a pitcher before they  learn to serve. Your serve might  improve if you take a moment  to analyze which baseball throw  it most closely resembles.  Both pitchers and outfielders  stand sideways while throwing.  The windup moves the throwing  hand behind their heads and  they snap their wrists just as the  ball leaves. Similar motions ap-  ���ply to tennis serving. However,  whereas a pitcher throws  straight ahead, an outfielder extends his arm high above his  head, throwing up and out. As  a result, the ball travels with  good height and distance.  Try to copy this outfielder's  throwing motion when you  serve. Toss the ball high, slightly in front and to the outside of  your leading toe. then hit up  and out at the ball with a  straight arm, snapping your  wrist at the moment of impact.  This throwing motion of ydur  racquet will help send the ball  high enough to clear the net,  and yet impart enough spin to  make it drop short of the service  line.  Serving with a pitcher's  throwing motion will have the  opposite effect. By letting the  ball drop too low and hitting  straight ahead with a bent arm,  you will often hit the net.  Tennis week number three in  the Pepsi-Wilson Minor Tennis  League has just finished, with  120 juniors having participated.  Several players earned Tennis  Canada Performance Awards  for excellent skill development.  In Sechelt, Jason Wear-  mouth, Dustin Ross, Shawn  Wagner, Chris McKee and  Robert Donovan.  In Gibsons, Jeff Schneidereit,  Eric Fenzedi, John Snazell, Bill  Wray, Shelley Bodt and Joya  Baba.  In the final rounds of mini-  tournament play in Sechelt  Dustin Ross defeated Robert  Donovan 2-1 while Jason Wear-  mouth beat Andrea Bist 3-0.  In Gibsons, Bill Wray beat  Joya Baba 2 to 1 while Eric  Fenzedi defeated Kyle Sugden  also by a score of 2 to 1.  Golf tournament  brings fun to game  Quit Work! Cancel your  holidays!

They were p4-0 in  the round robin. In the semi  final they overwhelmed Old  Fort from Burnaby 17-4.  The finals pitted Elphi  against Mohawk Oilers,  Mohawks star pitcher Greg Mc-  Callum had two shut out wins  in the round robin and shut out  Clover Inn, from Surrey, in  their semi final game. Elphi  picked up one run in the second  against McCallum and three  more in the third on Ken (Corky) Bland's three run blast over  the left centre field fence. For  Bland it was his fourth homer  and eighth hit of the tourney,  both tops.  This early outburst seemed to  take the starch out of the Oilers.  They could only manage one  run and that in the top of the  seventh.  Elphi's Ken Bland was the  top batter for the tournament, a  .750 average, and all star catcher. Also making the all star  squad were Dennis Hollis (outfield) and Kelly Bodnarak (second base). Hollis and Bodnarak both hit .500 in the tournament.  The men's league would like  to thank their umpires, Leif  Mjanes, Brian Butcher, Dave  Gant, Ken Jdhnson and Gary  Flumerfelt.

Bill Clark of the Telecommunications Workers Union was in Gib-  sons on Monday morning last to plan strategy in the union's battle  to keep the Service Mart open. Here Marie Synnot, Barb Chiasson,  Linda Hiebert and her son join Bill Clark for coffee at the Harbour  Cafe. ���Dianne Evans photo  GIBSONS RCMP  Police received numerous  reports of cougar sightings during this past week. The reports  originate from a triangular area  bordered by Chamberlin Road,  Marine Drive and Langdale.  Attempts have been made to  capture what appears to be a  single animal who has already  killed a house cat.  Police wish to remind the  public that there is a total ban  on beach fires until further  notice.^  As a result of two separate  shooting incidents reported to  police last week, the public is  B.C. Tel goes to Council  "The issue really becomes,  "does B.C. Tel really have the  right to arrange its business as it  sees fit?" said Brian Canfield,  Burrard area manager of B.C.  Tel, when he addressed the July  16 Gibsons council meeting.  He was addressing the council to clarify B.C. Tel's recent  move to close the Service Mart  on North Road, resulting in the  loss of two part-time jobs.  There have been two Town Hall  meetings on the issue, which has  developed into a debate on centralization and its effect on  small communities such as Gibsons and the Sunshine Coast in  general.  "After nine months of operation we found the Service Mart  to be less than viable," Canfield  continued, adding assurances  that the company has no intention of removing any craft positions from the Sunshine Coast.  "We have handled our surpluses (of staff) through attrition, retraining, and relocation,"  he said.  Mayor Larry Labonte expressed his concern over the loss  of jobs. "How are we going to  feed all these people who are  taken out by technology and  other things," he asked, to  which Canfield replied that, "It  is an interesting social problem."  Linda Hiebert, business agent  for the Telecommunication  Workers Union, addressed the i-  meeting in the question and  answer period, and re-iterated  the union's offer to B.C.

Tel  "This has left us a lot less  than happy," said Dale Eichar,  manager of the Sunshine Coast  Credit Union in a conversation  with the Coast News, Saturday.  He was referring to an announcement made by B.C. Tel  that service kiosks would be  located in the credit union offices in both Sechelt and Gibsons.  A news release received from  B.C. indicated that arrangements have been made with  the credit union, who would  also be accepting payment of  telephone bills. Ed Clark of  B.C. Tel, in a conversation with  the Coast News, said that the  announcement had been somewhat "premature" and that, in  fact, no such arrangement has  been made.  "We are still negotiating for  another site," Clark said, "but  we are not able to say any more  at this time."  Eichar explained that only  one discussion had taken place  between the Credit Union and  B.C. Tel, in May, at which time  they were "so far apart on the  matter of compensation that we  wouldn't have moved ahead  anyway.  "And then, when the labour  problems happened we were  more decided than ever not to  have the kiosks. There is only  one other test case in a credit  union in the entire province and  that's in Squamish," Eichar  continued.  "The contact with us was on  the basis that all financial institutions were being approached, not us alone.  "If the credit union suffers at  all because of this publicity,  then the company could well be  subject to litigation," Eichar  added, "It has really upset us."  ��� MISC SERVICES ���  Need this space?

Coast faces  forest fire threat  Continued from page 1  tion leading to the conviction of  anyone deliberately causing a  forest fire. Arson is suspected in  the 14,000 hectare (34,600 acre)  SPEN forest fire near Canal  Flats, B.C.  According to Hemphill, the  B.C. Forest Service has a  sophisticated high-tech lightning  locater system that can detect  possible fires started in B.C. by  lightning.  However, this system does  not detect the possibility of fires  originating from other sources  and the public is still the best  source for reporting forest fires.  The well advertised telephone  number to report forest fires,  ZE-5555, collects reports from  the public throughout B.C. and  refers the information back to  the appropriate regional and  district office.  However, since this system  entails a 20 minute delay in  reaching the Sechelt district office, Hemphill has asked local  residents to phone their office  directly to report a forest fire on  the Coast. That 24-hour  number is 885-5174.  Underwater project  considered for Coast  A proposal to build a giant  floating concrete and glass bubble at a site on the Sunshine  Coast has been put together by  Economic Development Commissioner Oddvin Vedo. Funding from the federal government would be applied for  under a new revenue sharing  program which may shortly be a'  reality.  The sphere, more than 80 feet  in diameter, Would include a  restaurant and other facilities,  and the underwater area would  have large windows so that  marine life could be observed.  "A scuba diving school could  operate in the area," said Vedo,  "and the classes could be watched by those inside the bubble.  There is excellent diving  available here on the Coast, ex-  pecially in the winter months,  and a facility like this would be  invaluable as an off-season attraction."  A similar sphere is being built  in Coffs Harbour, in New  South Wales, Australia, and the  designer, Richard Clasky, has  been on the Sunshine Coast  recently to look at proposed  sites for an Aquaplanet installation.

Ms Crane is a newly  appointed co-ordinator for the  treatment team operating within  School District No. 46.  "Parents are being very open,  and want to do the best for their  kids," Ms Crane said. "They  want to be there for the kids, to  make it easier and to help them  understand."  The treatment team, comprised of Marie Belle Bulmer, Alice  McSweeney and Drew McKee,  has been hard at work providing  therapy and support for children and parents involved in recent sexual abuse allegations in  the district.  In the first* three month  phase, the treatment team will  respond to the needs of the  parents and children, and will  then make recommendations  for a long term plan which will  include prevention and treatment programs, and professional training for those who  must deal with the problems.  Many of these programs will  supplement services already in  place.  "We are also looking at the  wider issues; abuse is something  we need to discuss," Ms Crane  said. "People tend to blame  each other when they don't  understand each other, and  when they feel an inability to  control things outside themselves.  "I think the program will be  very constructive; people want  to improve things, and take a  good look at what's going on.  We have initial funding to meet  specific needs, and the recommendations we make for the  long term will be also be provided for.  "We want to do a good job,  and it doesn't cost more to do it  well," Ms Crane said. "There  has been a definite commitment  to the families."  Workshops will be held<  through the summer months to  provide professional training  and when school starts up in the  fall there will be programs for  teachers within the system.  "In a sense we are all  therapists," Ms Crane continued, "people react in a  hostile way because of fear and  misinformation. We have to  learn to listen, learn how to  communicate with each other.  "It is not up to us to make  judgements," she said, "the  truth is only what you see from  your own perspective. You tell  the truth and then other people  (within the legal system) must  make those judgements.  "Everyone   interprets   what  Jhas happened to them from the  'inside. That's what we have to  deal with, how that makes them  feel.  "How you deal with it is important," Ms Crane explained,  "and it's important that people  realize that you can deal with it.  When you can talk about what  has happened to you it helps  you find a direction. What we  all aim for is to be self-reliant  people, and getting through a  crisis can be a strengthing process.  .. "We have to tell the children  that they are not damaged, that  they are simply themselves.  Maybe this will help the community be compassionate ano  will open things up and let the  light in," she said.  "If we can see ourselves then  we won't be so frightened; you  know, we do have a responsbili-  ty to all children, to make life  safe for them to grow."  Anyone requiring help or information may call Stephanie  Crane at 886-8811.  SCRD approves  by'law changes  Public hearings were held on  July 18 at the Sunshine Coast  Regional District (SCRD) for  amendments to Bylaw 264, all  of which went through without  a hitch.  Amendment 264.1 calls for  the removal of zoning in front  of the Indian Band lands on  Trail Bay. There were several  questions from residents who  expressed concern that future  developments in the area may  harm the surrounding residents.  "We don't zone the water in  front of Gibsons or Sechelt,"  explained Chairman Jim  Gurney, "and even though we  don't have to do this legally, we  feel we have a moral obligation  to do so."  Any applications for use1 Of  the foreshore go through landsi  parks and housing, but the applications come to the SCRD  for commentary, explained  Planner Geoff Power.    T  Amendment 264.2 applies to  Murray's Nursery on Mason  Road in West Sechelt, which is  lawfully non-conforming; zoning was changed from RU3  within the Agricultural Land  Reserve (ALR) to RU1, still  within the ALR, but allowing  for garden nursery operations.  Fiedler's amendment, 264.4,  which affects an area on North  Cemetery Road in Area E  recognizes an existing gravel,  operation, as does amendment  264.6 which refers to Swanson's  operation on Porpoise Bay.  The SCRD board assured  members of the audience that  they will continue to support  aesthetic development of the  foreshore on Trail Bay.  "We would like to see the  aesthetics maintained," said  Director Jon McRae, "we don't  want to block progress, but we  have passed on our comments  about hours of operations,  health, dust and noise  pollution."  He was referring to the  Sechelt Indian Band's plan to  build a pier in front of their  SUMMER  SALE!  All Summer Fashions Are  25��/c  o  to  40% 0ff!

"The SIB is prepared to listen  to the public," said Gurney,  "they will be responsive to the  concerns of the community."  Amendment 264.3, which applies to Jackson Brothers Logging Co. Ltd. was adopted but  with several provisos.  A development permit is to  be issued, under 717 of the  Municipal Act, including sections (a), (c), (f), (j) and (k), as  requested by the Area C Advisory Planning Commission.  Jackson Brothers will be permitted to repair logging equipment, but will have to comply  with the development permit  should any development take  place.  More funds  possible  A motion that the Sunshine  Coast Regional District (SCRD)  board apply for an amendment  to the Letters Patent to permit a  $100,000 spending limit on  funds collected for West Howe  Sound Recreation was passed  by the board at the July 11  meeting.  Chairman Jim Gurney, who  made the motion, proposed that  a referendum be conducted in  Areas E and F to seek the approval of the electorate, since  the limit is $3500 in excess of the  present levels.  "This is to compensate West  Howe Sound for the loss of the  Machinery and Equipment tax  base," explained Gurney. Action was taken in response to a  letter from the town of Gibsons.  In other business, the board  received a letter from Mr. Lyle  Forbes, in which he raises  several serious concerns about  work carried out on the Pender  Harbour Golf course site in the  area of Klein Creek, a salmon  spawning creek.  The board decided to discuss  the matter 'in camera' since it  involved an area where the  SCRD could be held legally  liable.  However, in a note received  by the Coast News from Bill  Lawrenuk of the Pender Harbour Golf society it was pointed  out that the society has worked  'very closely with federal ,  fisheries, and provincial water  mangement'.  ���f  DIET  CENTER  THE LAST  WEIGHT-LOSS  PROGRAM YOU'LL  EVER NEED.
