Array Vi ��V IXJf  _���_���<*.  An unusual glimpse of Gibsons framed, like a Christmas card, through snow-covered trees.  ���Brad Benson photo  Irregularities alleged  Schools recount postponed  Rural Area 2, School District  46, is without newly elected  trustees after an official recount  was postponed on Friday  because of security irregularities.  Bowen Island candidate  Thomas Ferguson had called  for a recount, because of the  closeness of the November 16  vote - 887 for Don Douglas, 859  for Ferguson and 907 for Doris  Fuller - and last Friday was set  by Returning Officer Donald  Pye as the day for the recount.  However on Friday morning  it was discovered that the Davis  Bay ballot box had been left  unlocked overnight. Secretary-  treasurer Roy Mills  told  the  Coast News that it appears Pye  unlocked the box on Thursday  evening to place in it a poll book  from Davis Bay. He had then  failed to relock the box and it  sat in an unlocked room in the  school board offices overnight.  The candidates will be consulting legal counsel and have  agreed that none would comment to the press but refer all  enquiries to Pye. When contacted by the Coast News Pye  concurred with Mills'  assessment of the situation and added  that he will be investigating the  lists to see if any irregularities  had taken place.  "Sometimes   people  try  to  beat the system a little bit," he  said. "You can't catch them all  but we try to. It was a mess at  Davis Bay - I was there five  times that day - the poll clerk  was trying to do her best."  Pye said that he would be  consulting the Union of British  Columbia Municipalities this  week to obtain advice on the  situation and the candidates  would meet again on Friday,  November 29.  Jn the meantime, as reported  elsewhere in this newspaper,  Minister of Education Jack  Heinrich has declared Bowen  Island to be in School District  45 as of July 1, 1986, a situation  which may have some effect on  Ferguson's position.  Bowen Island to leave SD#46  On the morning of Monday,.  November 18, Mr. Jim Carter,  Deputy Minister of Education,  phoned the superintendent of  schools and notified him that  the Minister had made up his  mind and that Bowen Island  would be transferred from  School District 46 to School  District 45 effective July 1,  1986, and that the process  would commence immediately.  Since Bowen Island has a  very high assessment in relationship to the number of students  living there, its removal from  this school district will caus. a  small increase in the tax rate for  1986 and a very, very small  decrease in the tax rate of West  Vancouver.  The projected enrolment at  Bowen Island Community  School for September 1986 is 23  kindergarten and 146 grades  1-7.  School District 46 had taken  the position that whatever was  the preference of the majority  of the Bowen Island community, in terms of which school  district they belong to, would be  the deciding factor and would  be acceptable to the school  board.  It is not at present  known what factors were taken  into account by the minister in  arriving at his decision, other  than the fact that he rejected the  idea of a referendum to be run  in conjunction with the  November elections.  Labonte bows out  Gibsons Mayor Laurent Labonte bade farewell at a council  meeting last Tuesday.  Labonte recalled the many projects of his last term - new  construction, the marina, downtown revitalization - and concluded, "I think we've done very well. Whoever sat around  this table for the last two years can be proud of their work.  Provincial representative under fire  Scantech saga rolls on  Lands, Parks and Housing  (LPH) representative Richard  Webber was at the Sunshine  Coast Regional District (SCRD)  meeting November 21 and came  under fire from members of the  public, the regional board and  the press over the issue of the  granting of a temporary license  of occupation to Scantech at  Wood Bay.  He assured those present that  according to LPH .everything  was done to the letter of the  law, although when questioned  by the Coast News he said that  any other. ��� such application  would -normally take longer  than the four days it did take  from the application to installation of the fish pens.   .  Newly elected Area A director, Gordon Wilson asked  whether the capital investment  which has been made by  Scantech at the site would influence the granting of a permanent licence of occupation.  "We   can   turn   it   down,  although the investment does  y,., ha^e some bearing on the mat-  \    ter," WebbielPsaid. He appealed  '|, xtQ be surprised when it was  : pointed out by Gordon Wilson  ithat Scantech did not have industrial access to the site from  the Department of Highways,  only" residential access.  "Could it be," asked Wilson,  "that the Department of  Highways may have had some  objections to an industrial access at that point because of the  curving nature of the road?"  An application for a permanent lease has now been received but comment is not required  until December 20; the board  was also reminded that LPH  may go ahead and grant the permanent licence regardless of  what the SCRD recommends.  During last week's severe  storm the log boom which had  been installed at the site to protect the pens from the heavy  seas common in the area broke  up, and the pens which are  already at the site are now exposed to the wave action.  There   has   been    much  speculation   that   Scantech's  main interest in the Wood Bay  site is that of a display centre for  their pens, rather than a fulhy  fledged fish farm, and many*  local  aquaculturists. have  exr!  pressed some concern that thie-  controversy   surrounding -they  company's activities may affect y  their businesses and future in-;  vestment opportunities in the :  area, said Wilson.  The board has reserved its:;  decision  on  the matter  until;  Wilson in inaugurated, early Jn _  December, so that he may have  voting rights when the matter  comes to the vote.  Burnside to sue  Outgoing Gibsons alderman and recent mayoralty candidate John Burnside is to seek legal redress for a series of  published articles leading up to and following the recem  municipal elections which he feels were defamatory.  In a statement released on the weekend, Burnside said:  "The outrageous and unjustified assaults on myself which  accompanied my recent candidacy as mayor for the Town of  yGibsons has leftTO^^  from those responsible.  "I have already sought legal counsel and, subject to that  counsel, I intend to take issue with my detractors to the limit  of the law.  "I take this action for two reasons; first, of course, in self-  defence; secondly, I feel that what has become a publishing  tradition on the Sunshine Coast of vilification and character  assassination of elected officials, candidates for office, and  public officials, ongoing for years, must be firmly and finally  opposed."  Grounded near Gospel Rock  Wounded eagle mends  by Brad Benson  A wounded bald eagle, which  was grounded near Gospel  Rock in Gibsons, was rescued  last Monday after it was found  fending off a stray dog.  Wounded in its right wing, the  eagle was unable to fly.  Garry Lockett, who lives  nearby and was walking his own  dog, came upon them while  they were hissing and barking at  each other.  The endangered eagle picked  the right human with whom to  have its first close encounter.  Not many people would brave  the beak and talons of an eagle  with a five foot wing span, but  rescuer Lockett, after first chasing off the stray dog, somehow  . managed to get his coat around  the frantic bird without getting  hurt. He then carried him back  to his pick:up, and got him to  the Gibsons Animal Hospital  with only one short stop to have  their picture taken.  "Mikie", as the young eagle  has since been nicknamed - he is  estimated to be two years old  -couldn't have picked a better  vet to tend him either.  The  animal hospital's veterinarian,  Dr. Joel Bornstein, spent a year  and a half with the Calgary  Zoo, working with many of its  various animals,  reptiles and  birds.  He was also issued a  special permit from the B.C.  Wildlife Federation to take in  and rehabilitate wildlife after he  had cared for a fawn that had  been hit by a car last summer.  The wound in the muscles  under the eagle's right wing has  also affected its ability to grasp  with its right talon. Dr. Bornstein has been unable to determine the cause of the wound.  He said it was possible that it  was a bullet, but that it may also  have been caused naturally.  As of last Friday, Dr. Bornstein reports that the surface of  the wound now appears to be  healing nicely and that its grasp  also seems to be improving.  "Mikie" - named after that  youngster in the TV commercial  that would eat anything - "is  doing just great," said Dr.  Bornstein, who is quite taken  with him. "He's got quite a per-  sonalilty," he said.  "He's very intelligent and  will even talk (squawk) to you  as you pass his cage. Also, he is  so gentle that we now handle  him without gloves and he has  even let me wash off his beak  with my fingers."  Of the raw liver, kidney and  salmon "Mikie" is being serv  ed, he prefers the liver. He also  prefers to be fed by hand. According to Dr. Bornstein, "He's  eating like a horse."  If "Mikie" continues to improve as he has been, he should  be ready to be let loose in about  two weeks. Dr. Bornstein plans  to do it in Brothers Park where  there will be enough room so  that if "Mikie" falters in hisy  return flight to freedom, hey  won't get hung-up in the trees, y  The first thing rescuer Garry; \  Lockett made Dr. Bornstein ^  promise him when he brought;.?  the eagle in, was that he would;?  be on hand when he is set free.;;I  Both Community 10 Television^  and the Coast News have also*^  asked to be on hand to record y  the conclusion of "Mikie's"'  human encounter.  Garry Lockett is shown with the wounded Bald Eagle he rescued  last Monday on Gower Point Road near Gospel Rock. The eagle is  now recovering at the Gibsons Animal Hospital.

At the conclusion of the interview, Gzowski asked the  ambassador what he hoped for from the summit.  "It may sound silly, Peter," said Lewis, "but I hope  they like each other."  The summit has come and gone and whether the two  men like each other or not is not recorded. There seems to  have been a degree of mutual respect achieved, however,  and that is no little matter.  It is simply true, for Reagan and Gorbachev as well as  the rest of us, that we share much more than that which  divides us. By focussing exclusively on our differences we  achieve only a rancorous stalemate.  We must live in hope that from the cautious and inconclusive summit held in Switzerland last week will come  progress towards recognizing our common humanity and  our common fate on Space-ship Earth.  Flowing from the renewed contacts between the superpowers, for instance, we would like to see an end to the  Soviet action in Afghanistan and the American involvement against the people of Nicaragua.  It is time to step back from the awesome brink. A  demonstration of good faith and trust from both sides  would reinforce whatever gains were made last week.  John Burnside  Time to move  Chief Stan Dixon of the Sechelt Indian Band is a busy  man these days - busy and frustrated. This week he flies to  Ottawa agian to meet with the Justice Department, the  corner of the government maze where legislation for Indian self-government has traditionally been stonewalled.  Dixon is doing all he can to ready the Sechelts for what  he calls the "new beginning". It isn't just a change in  bureaucracy, it's the development of a philosophy and the  revival of a culture, it's the Sechelt Indian Band working  together and with the surrounding communities to be a  resource and to have economic independence.  Let us hope that the Federal Government makes every  effort to bring the matter to a speedy conclusion. The  Sechelts deserve to take charge of their own destiny. With  that will come the self-confidence and self-esteem that  make a people strong, that will take the Sechelts into an  exciting and promising future.

The  original committee formed in 1948 to draw up the plans for the  fireball comprised Eric Inglis, Cliff Leach, Dick Fitchett, Ben  Knight, and W. Skellet. It was during the winter of 19-48-49 that  disputes about a site for the hall arose; it was originally planned to  be located adjacent to the old phone office, but in February 1949  the council allocated $1500 for the new hall to be built next to the  pump house on the understanding that part of the hall would be used as a storage area for the waterworks department. The first fire  chief was Eric Inglis, followed by Cliff Leach and then Wilf Gray.  The first alarm was installed in 1950 on the roof of the Shell gas station and came from the defunct Granthams Brigade. The present  upper storey of the old fireball was added to the lower storey in  1970 and incorporated the tower at the rear of the building. One of  the features of the fire department was the social club, the Smokey  Stover Club, which was formed in December 1950 primarily to provide entertainment for the firemen after their practices, although it  also sponsored the local little league and men's league baseball  teams and numerous charity functions. Now used by the  Unemployment Action Centre, the site of the old fire hall has been  recommended by Gibsons Council for a performing arts pavilion  which will incorporate as much of the old building as possible as  well as enhancing Holland Park with a roof garden, terraces and  amphitheatre.  Dianne       Evans  Visitors from Nicaragua  by Dianne Evans  There were several  Nicaraguan visitors to the Sunshine Coast this past week,  associated with the band Igni  Tawanka which played at a  highly successful fund-raising  dance in the Roberts Creek  Community Hall on Friday  night.   ,. ���      ^  Flute and saxaphone player  and lead singer Alvaro  Montenegro spoke to the Coast  News the following morning as  the band prepared to leave for  another stop on their current  tour of Canada.  "The Tools for Peace campaign is at its height now," he  said, "and the main purpose of  our visit is to help with the promotion of the campaign and to  give people direct contact with  Nicaragua."  Montenegro went on to talk  about conditions in Nicaragua  at the present time.  "All the transformations that  the revolution has brought  about in health, education,  food subsidies have had a deep  impact on the way of being in  our country," he said. "What  poses a threat to the U.S.  government is the fact that a  country with a population of  three and a half million has  dared to work out its independent and sovereign destiny.  "I guess they feel afraid that  we are setting an example for  other countries to try to change  too, and that's why they are  waging prolonged military  pressure against Nicaragua,"  Montenegro explained.  "This is forcing us to use  more and more of our national  income on defence Also before  this the U.S. was our major  trading partner and many of  our imports came from that  country.. We were geared to  , trade,.with the,U.S. Now that  has stopped. Most of our canned goods came from the U.S.  and the embargo has stopped  that," he siad.  "The Contras have been  avoiding military installations  and hitting our crops, food coops and farmers' houses,"  Montenegro continued. "This  has affected our food supplies.  Also they have been hitting the  coffee harvest. Coffee is our  main source of income and now  we have had to arm our  harvesters.  "We have had to organize  what little we have through  defence committees. This is to  avoid speculation and to make  sure we all get what we need.  We are trying hard not to affect  each household's economy," he  said.  "Because of these things we  have been forced to accept  donations from the Eastern bloc  because they have the best  solidarity with us now, but our  main source of trade now is  with Western Europe, for food  and technology. But that is difficult too. Western Europe is  small in terms of technology.  For expample, we get an Italian  tractor but we can't use French  parts for it. We are trying to  deal with that and to survive the  embargo," he explained.  "Right now our main attitude is to resist. Nicaragua  must survive. The war is getting  worse and the situation is getting very hard. We need international solidarity *to help us to  resist the Contras. They have  been defeated militarily but now  they hit civilians," Montenegro  said.  "We are determined to  survive  ����  Those who wish to contribute  to the Tools for Peace campaign  which will send boat loads of  food and supplies to Nicaragua  in the new year, may send cheques, payable to the Central  American Support Committee,  at Box 161, Gibsons BC VON  1V0.  From the Conservation Officer  A Memory  Skipping flat pebbles over the dark pond-  One of yours flipped nine times before, it sank-  We watched the ripples spread* round after round,  Until the circles broke against the bank.  We played until the sun set, and the dank  Mist, heavy with the spicy smell of fern,  Rose from the reeds and warned us to return.  Of lives that intersect, then go their way,  At last to lose themselves alone against  The shores of silence, our brief hours of play  Seem now the symbol: the bright memory fenced  With deep, oblivious forest, and condensed  Into one flash, one fragmentary scene  That skips the surface of the years between.  You had a decade left that afternoon  Before you were to die in the first war;  But deep within me, like a sealed cocoon,  The memory clung, for fifty years and more.  To open for one sudden flight and soar  Into this moment lost in time beyond  Two small boys skipping pebbles over the pond.  Robert Hillyer  Look to your licences  by Jamie Stephen  Conservation Officer  Imagine you're fishing.  Winter springs have moved into  Quarry Bay. You're in a tin  boat. It's mid-November.  Or, perhaps you're hunting  up Mount Richardson, searching for an elusive four point.  It's so cold, you're almost convulsing; but you're having fun.  Your nose continues to drip and  smudges the crumpled copy of  the regulations you got when  you picked up your license. I  mean licenses. Lots of them.  Just like the smudged regulations you're trying to fathom.  No matter, your mind  doesn't dwell on long law, I  mean on law long - that stuffs  hard to figure at the best of  times. Let alone when you're  cold and concentrating on the  tip of your rod or the telltale  crack of a twig..sssh!..listen,  there it is again!..maybe the  four point?!  But these days, to obey the  rules you have to understand  them. Perhaps those twigs were  crunched by a Conservation Officer with a whole bunch of  points to make. He's probably  going to check your licenses.  That's right, all of them. Say...  since we're on such an invigorating subject, and since you probably aren't even in a tin boat  or up Mount Richardson right  now, how about settling back  and letting me try to explain a  couple of the most commonly  misunderstood, and broken,  fish and wildlife regulations.  If you hunt, have a look at a  deer license or tag as it's commonly called, and if you fish,  check your steelhead or chinook  licence. What they all have in  common are instructions  printed on the license on how  you are legally required to  record your bag.  You see, each of these  licenses is valid for a specified  number of animals, for example, a stamped deer license is  valid for two deer, while a  chinook 'catch card' is valid in  the   gulf   for   twenty   spring  salmon. This is generally known  as your annual bag limit, which,  except for special areas, you are  not permitted to exceed. When  you do kill a chinook or a  steelhead or a big game animal,  the law compels you to record  that kill on your license IMMEDIATELY! Meaning at  once; directly; without delay;  Depending upon the license,  you record your kill by either  writing the date and place of the  kill on an appropriate line of the  license, or you cut or tear out  the calendar dates, sex and  place which may be printed  around the perimeter of your  license.  The key word - here comes  the crunch (sssh..there it is  again!) - IMMEDIATELY, is  there to prevent the license from  being used a second or subsequent time by a greedy hunter  or fisherman - the oldest trick in  the book. If you could sneak a  nice fat deer past the Game  Wardens, and stash it at home  without cancelling or recording  it on your license, you might use  the license again for another  deer, since on the surface your  annual bag limit would not appear to have been reduced. Undoubtedly, the majority of  hunters or fishermen who do  not cancel or record their catch  immediately and properly are  careless and/or forgetful, and  have no intent to circumvent the  law.  But you know, it's really  tough to distinguish you folk  from those who have a well  rehearsed explanation and a  silver tongue should an officer  happen along unexpectedly and  inconveniently. And to give you  an idea of the scope of the problem, that dilemma was imposed on me six times in one day  around Gambier a few weeks  ago.  In the next week or so I'll try  and try to explain a few of the  other most commonly mis  understood fish and wildlife  regulations, but until then  then...watch that rod tip and  listen..d'you hear that crunch?! !-'��..

Heinrich  Minister of Education  Parliament Buildings  Victoria, BC  Dear Mr. Heinrich:  Re:   Gibsons   Election    for  Trustee  I would like to express my  frustration concerning the present situation that I find myself  in. Because of circumstances  beyond my control, I have been  excluded from the democratic  process that has just been exercised.  Recently our Secretary-  Treasurer Mr. R. Mills reported  to myself and other members of  the board that you were considering appointing me to the  position of school trustee  representing the Town of Gib  sons. I recognize that according  to Section 27(2) of the School  Act that you have that authority. I am also aware of successful  appointments that have been  carried out in the past. Myself  and my fellow board members  wish to state unequivocally that  we believe the democratic process should be carried out.  I believe that the people of  the Town of Gibsons deserve to  have a choice on who will represent them and make decisions  relating to their children's  education. I would urge you to  consider the present political  and economic climate in which  we find ourselves. Therefore I  am requesting that you initiate  the process for a democratic  election for the Trustee to represent the Town of Gbisons. This  will ensure the electoral rights of  this community.  Mrs. Janice Edmonds  Voter disappointed  Editor:  ;'" I am beginning to consider  jthe Sunshine Coast my home,  having lived here for five years,  Drop off your  COAST NEWS  CLASSIFIEDS  at  Peninsula Market  in Davis Bay  until noon Saturday  "A Frlandly Piopls Placo"  and am especially attached to  the town of Gibsons.  Last week,I voted for the first  time in a municipal election,  feeling that it was a crucial one  at this point in our town's  development.  I was consequently disappointed when the majority of  electors chose to disregard a  candidate whose vision and  foresight is so vitally linked to  the progress our community has  made in the past few years.

That  is why I have attended many  Remembrance Day ceremonies.  I like the Scottish bagpipe and  Sechelt has a superb kilty band.  I attended the Royal Canadian  Legion's ceremony in 1983 but  missed 1984.  Last Monday was no different except in that the day was  very cold. I came warmly bundled but I saw around me open-  toed shoes, skirts and nylon  stockings and, of course, the  kilties with bare knees. I sensed  that, because of the cold, the  ritual was conducted rather perfunctorily and in jig time. Padre  John Paetkau's prayer sounded  as though spoken through chattering teeth; and the Commanding Officer yelped his orders at  staccato speed to the shivering  striplings in the Sea Cadets and  Cub Scouts.  The sequence of events was  very much as usual except that  the short-haired white dog,  which had in 1983 gone up and  saluted the wreaths in his own  fashion, was missing. While  departing after the ceremony, I  saw what I believe was the same .  dog tethered to a signpost on  Cowrie Street.  What bothers me is that the  Royal Canadian Legion,  Branch 140, is not keeping  abreast of rapidly changing  military issues. I appears to be  frozen in the era of World War  1. The organizers seem unaware  of the existence of other  veterans groups in Canada and  abroad which are headed by  prestigious leaders such as the  following:  Admiral Robert Falls (Ret.),  former top Nato official and  now director of Canadian Centre on Arms Control. Rear Admiral   Eugene   Carroll,   U.S.  Navey (Ret.) director of Centre  for   Defence   Information,  Washington.   Admiral   Noel  Gayler,   U.S.   Navy   (Ret.)  member of National Security  Agency. C.G. Gifford, (Distinguished Flying Cross), national  chariman   of   Veterans   for  Multilateral Nuclear Disarmament. Colonel Norman Hoye,  member of Veterans for Mulit-  national Nuclear Disarmament.  General   Nino   Pasti,   former  Deputy Supreme Commander  of the Allied Forces in Europe.  Brigadier   Harbottle,   former  United  Nations   Commander,  who,   when  questioned  at  a  disarmament meeting in Victoria as to our chances of surviving a nuclear attack, replied,  "We will all be fried, like the  breakfast bacon."  It is astonishing that the  legionaires of Branch 140 seem  oblivious of the warnings these  other veteran groups are making. They continue to obey the  classic formula like mesmerized  automatons. Isn't it time to update their military bias? Is there  no place in a memorial service  for an appeal to end war?

If every place in the U.S.A.  and Canada felt as she does we  would not be able to hear such  wonderful songs as "New York,  New York" and all the songs we  all enjoy. The American people  know the benefit of having people sing about their country and  I say "Let's start writing about  OUR   wonderful   country".  Sechelt may be a small village  but if even one person is made  to feel proud of their village or  one person enjoys dancing to a  song about their home town, I  say you are wrong about my  song being a "waste of  money".  I wish to thank Mayor  Kolibas and Sechelt Council for  purchasing my song and also to  thank Mr. John Hynds, Mrs.  Jessie Morrison, Steve Hubert  and   Nikki   Weber   for   their  wonderful support.  I believe that if a record could  be put out,, all tourists, and  especially at Expo, could take  home a souvenir that would  keep Sechelt in their hearts  Muriel Rheaume  ffaA Market  .#��  ____  Entertaining This  Holiday Season?

In  other medias at other times  editors have decided that one  cause or another is not  newsworthy and would deny  coverage in their columns.  However, this has not been-the  case on the Sunshine Coast, and  I sincerely appreciate the oppof-  tunities that have been  available, past and present, to  support a just cause. This is an  excellent example of the true  meaning of "Freedom of the  Press". Thank you very much.  Scantech Resources Limited  erred when they purchased their  five acres at Earl's Cove. First  of all they should have checked  that it was properly zoned for  the use that they wanted. Then  they should have checked to  find out if a fish processing  plant would be welcome in the  residential area, and, the purchase should have been subject  to it's useability.  In bylaw No. 96.95 the Sunshine Coast directors, and planners describe aquaculture as:  A. Means growing or  harvesting fish, shellfish,  molluscs, crustanceans and  marine algae; and  B. Includes the cleaning,  storage, shucking, drying,  packaging, cooking, canning  and smoking of fish, shellfish,  molluscs, crustaceans and  marine algae; and  C. Excludes processing not  included in this definition and  rendering of fish, shellfish,  molluscs, crustaceans and  marine algae.

In this chilly weather, wouldn't  it be a nice change to put on  Hawaiian garb, forget the  temperature outdoors and  dance to a live band, the Third  Degree? We hula off at 9 p.m.,  November 30, for $10 each.  WINDOW  It took Ernie Wood three  months to complete the stained  glass window for the St. John's  United Church in Davis Bay.  From a design by Molly Reid,  this is a true mosaic of over 200  individual pieces. He also did  the design and work in the circular window over the door.  Ernie took up silversmithing  at first, as a hobby he could  conveniently work at in an  apartment. Then stained glass  caught his eye and a course with  Harry Smith convinced him this  was his medium.  > Ernie's home reflects his love  of creating stained glass objects.  From the large and colourful  Tiffany light shades to the  original reed, tree and duck  design around the front door.  Actually the ducks are from a  pattern, the rest is Ernie's  design. In fact, Bullwinkle's  sells some of Ernie's ducks etc.  done up as hangings to put in  windows.  Ernie has adapted some existing equipment to his special  needs, creating in one instance a  unique apparatus to hold the  lamp shades at all angles. This  makes it much easier to work in  those intricate pieces of glass.  Ernie and wife, Betty, have  found the lamps and a window  useful gifts for their children.  Ernie has also donated a "hummer" and fuschia pictures to  Shorncliffe, and other donations to the Masons, etc., for  raffle prizes. The local bridge  club also benefits from Ernie's  generosity as he usually donates  a small dish as a prize each year.  Born on the Sunshine Coast,  Ernie's work often reflects the  colours and freedom of design  of our "close to nature"  habitat. He works at the glass  only as time and inclination permit,, a true hobby.  He is working on polygon  forms at the moment and has  come up with some interesting  and useful planters so far.  Thanks for my planter, Ernie.  Sechelt Seniors  by Robert Foxall  While 75 may seem like a  goodly attendance at a montjily  meeting which was held in our  hall on November 21, many of  the executive asked me to express their disappointment at  the light turnout.  We now have 773 paid up  members and many felt that 10  percent was not exactly a good  turnout even considering the  weather was not the kindest.  To the many newcomers, I  would make the point that we  are not slave drivers but would  like a little help once in awhile if  all the. things we are planning  are to be done in the next two or  three years.  Come to some of our many  functions and let us know which  activity you would like to be  engaged in and we will put you  to work at something you  would like to do from time to  time.  President Larry advised us  that incorporation was now  finished and a taxation number  was now available.  While we are not getting very  rapid action from governmental  sources in our requests for aid  with our building fund, the  fund continues to grow, thanks  to the efforts of members, but  we still have a long way to go.  Don't worry about the cold  weather. The hall will be warm.  It was reported that a new  burner had been installed in the  furnace, so the hall will be  warm as long as our credit is  good with the oil supplier.  Talking of oil. We are adding  something new to our activities  -oil painting. It was announced  that lessons in painting with oils  would commence January 8.  Samples of works executed by  some members were on display  and I must say were very impressive. Len Herder is in  charge and can be phoned for  details of equipment required.  There is no dance in Dec-  tW.-1117.t1.S11  ember but do not forget the  New Years Eve Dance for which  the orchestra is already practising.  Adele DeLange advised us  that the 1986 convention would  be held at Osoyoos May 12 to  May 14. If you have any resolutions get them to Adele at an  early date.  December 4 is the date of the  bus trip to Lansdowne Mall.  Phone Alice for reservations.  Departure time is 7:30 a.m.  Don't forget there is  something doing practically  every day of the week at our  hall. Even if it is something you  are not too fussy about you will  get a friendly greeting and a  chance to be neighbourly with  someone looking for comradeship. We do have a lot of  fun. Come and make someone  happy.  I almost forgot to tell you.  There will be a concert on both  days we are having Christmas  dinners. Our own Sixty-Niners  will be the main attraction. You  know how good they are. You  be sure you have your reservation in.  MERRY CHRISTMAS.  Lions raising funds  The Sunshine Coast Lions  Club and Imperial Esso gas stations in Sechelt and Gibsons are  again co-operating to support  the annual Christmas Telethon.  On Sunday, December 2, the  local Lions will be pumping gas,  the sales of which will be match  ed dollar for dollar by Imperial  Esso and the proceeds going to  the Telethon.  The Lions would appreciate  the support of local residents.  Here is the chance to fill the  tank and help out a very needy  cause at the same time.  Propane  facility  propos  Gibsons Council allowed application last week for a propane bottle filling facility on the  north side of Highway 101, second house east of North Road.  But Mayor Laurent Labonte  stressed that a public hearing  will be held before zoning  changes can be made to allow  the facility there.  Trevor Wood, who owns  three adjoining lots on Highway  101, told council that the outlet  would supply recreational  vehicles and boats as well as  provide a. plumbing and heating  service for propane users.  Wood was speaking for his  son Richard, who would run the  business and is currently  I.C.G.'s designated propane  service man on the coast.  The business would operate  out of an addition to Wood's  house and, if successful, would  . expand onto one or both of the  two adjacent lots.  At an earlier meeting, council  had questioned placing a propane outlet in the largely  residential area.  Wood assured them the  facility would be approved and  in full harmony with provincial  regulations of the Gas Safety  Branch.  He said a Chevron station at  First Avenue and Clarke Drive  in Vancouver, which dispenses  propane, is located in a high-  density population area.  The hilltop location would be  ideal, he said, to promote propane use on the coast.  Chamber  looks for  assistance  GARAGE SALE  Support your high school  grad class and your Chamber of  Commerce.

BUSINESS AND  PROFESSIONAL WOMEN  Interesting reports were heard  at the November 19 meeting of  the Sunshine Coast Business  and Professional Women's  Club held at the fine Pebbles  Restaurant.  Dodie Marshall said the lun-  Please turn to page 17  - In Memoriam -  MARY ANNAND WALKER 1900- 1985  Mary Walker was born Mary Sellars in 1900, Fergus  Scotland. She arrived in Canada in 1908 to Virden,  Manitoba. After completing collegiate she went to Winnipeg  to secretarial school, then to work at Eatons.  Mary married Robert W. Simpson in 1920. From this marriage there were four children Vera, Peggy, Connie and Bob.  Mary, or Mum, was very active in the Legion in Virden.  The big move to the west came in 1934 when the family moved to Vancouver.  She became involved with Carleton PTA, was a Sunday  school teacher and C.G.I.T. leader at Collingwood United  Church.  With a great eye for fashion Mary worked in several dress  shops before opening her own, The Rose Dress Shop in New  Westminster, 1946.  Along with her partner Harry Walker they had many prize  winning decorated cars participating in every New  Westminster May Day besides entering in other festivities  held throughout the province and south of the border. They  were well known and looked for each year.  The New Westminster Business and Professional Women's  Club held a great interest for her and the club applauded her  efforts in 1963 by voting her their Woman of the Year for  New Westminster, and honouring her again as they chose her  as their most hardworking member to be their representative  to have lunch and meet with Queen Elizabeth at the City  Hall.  She served as president and in other offices as well as a  director for the lower mainland.  She was instrumental in helping the Sunshine Coast  Business and Professional Women's Club start up. Mary  sponsored many fashion shows for her club and other  charities. Married in 1957, her partner Harry passed away in  1959.  She had her home built in Welcome Beach in 1961 and  retired there in 1965.  ,   Mary was active on the board of Greene Court Society and  was in charge of admitting for many years.  She served as a member and Volunteer for the Sechelt  Hospital Auxiliary to St. Mary's Hospital.  In the early sixties she took flying lessons and loved the experience. Just last year she thrilled to a ride on a motorcycle,  her spirit of trying new things not dimmed with age.  It was not the things Mum did that won her many friends it  was her sweet, gracious ever-loving self, with a fine sense of  humour and great understanding.  The after funeral gathering was at the home of Mrs. Ada  Dawe and a graveside service will be held in New  Westminster.

Connor  were shocked to learn of the  sudden death of her mother,  Mrs. Mary Walker, on Thursday. Mary had a gentle passing  at her home on Welcome Beach  at the age of 85.  It was in 1959 that the property was purchased, and in  1965 Mary took up permanent  residence after the sale of her  Rose Dress Shop in New  Westminster. She was a longtime and highly respected  member of the Business and  Professional Women's Club  and gave much of her "time and  energy on the Board of Directors of Greene Court.  Three daughters and one son  survive as well as nine grandchildren. Funeral service was on  Saturday, November 23 at the  Devlin Funeral Home followed  by a gathering of many friends  at the Ada Dawe residence.  Members of the Sechelt  Branch of St. Mary's Hospital  along with Car-Lynn Catering  graciously provided luncheon, a  gesture much appreciated by the  family.  On behalf of the many of us  who knew Mary Walker, I  would like to express our  deepest sympathy to all the  family.  A HAPPIER NOTE  Nikki Weber is a very excited  lady right now. Just this week  she received a phone call from a  TV station in Holland inviting  her to appear on a This is Your  Life program. In the war years  Nikki had a singing quartette  which became well know, and  during the following years one  of the members continued  entertaining as a pianist and  night club owner.  She is the one being honoured  on this program and we can well  imagine her delight when one of  the surprises will be the appearance of her long lost friend  Nikki.  It is rather a pity that Nikki  has such a tight schedule of  local appearances as she will only be able to go for a couple of  days, from December 9; to  December 11. But we all -wish  her well on the trip and know  that she will add much to the  TV show in Holland. f  RECREATION SOCIETY  The Halfmoon Bay Recreation Society had to postpone  last week's meeting and it is  now planned for Thursday,  November 28, 7:30 p.m. at  Melanie's. For information call  her at 885-5784.  CHRISTMAS ACTIVITIES  Things are all set for  Welcome Beach Community  Association's festive season.

Take a note of those dates and  of the reasonable ticket prices  which are $12 for the Friday  Christmas dinner, $14 for the  Saturday night and $10 for New  Years Eve.  IN A GIVING MOOD?  At this time of year most of  us are in a cgiving? frame of  mind so it would seem like a  good time to remind you of a  special fund which has been set  up for a fine lad who lives on  Redrooffs Road.  Most of you know young  Erin Kelly who is now 16 years  of age, is confined to a wheel  chair and is a very courageous  fellow. His greatest need is for a  vehicle which is equipped for a  wheelchair and we realize that it  will take some years to collect  the kind of money required for  such a project.  But Erin already has his driving license which is in itself a  great accomplishment. Between  us all we could help make this  young fellow's dream come true  if we would drop by at the  Royal Bank in Sechelt and give  a donation towards this fund.

The  original amount of $400 for the  lease was reduced to $100,  thanks largely to the efforts of  Bill Chinnick.  The association can now continue its efforts to restructure  and revitalize the wharf for the  community of Granthams Landing. The wharf has been long  used by the community for  swimming, boat landings and  fishing. It will now be possible  to continue this usage after  some upgrading.

Hwy 101. Gibsons  186-7112  Craft Faire is on Dec. 1st  by Jeanie Parker, 886-3973  No, the date for the Roberts  Creek Craft Faire has not been  changed. There was a mistake in  last week's column. The faire is  this Sunday, December 1, not  December 7, from 10 a.m. to 4  p.m. at the Roberts Creek Community Hall.  All the tables have been  booked for nearly a month so  there should be lots of goodies.  There's pottery, jewellery,  needlepoint with a demonstration, the Sunshine Coast  Almanac, lots of doll clothes,  homemade chocolates, rugs,  wreaths, ceramics, and much  much more.  Chris Luster will be serving  homemade fettucini and clam  sauce so plan on coming for  lunch. There's a 50 cents admission charge and a door prize.  The faire is sponsored by the  Roberts Creek Hall Committee.  BEER AND WINE  The Homemade Beer and  Wine Contest is also this  weekend: Saturday at the  Roberts Creek Legion. Stella  Mutch is even more organized  this year so it promises to be  bigger and better than ever.  There are six categories of  competition: red wine from  concentrate, white wine from  concentrate, blackberry wine,  wine from other fruits and  ' vegetables, liqueurs, and beer.  ' There's also a label contest and  one for the most unusual container.  The judging starts at 3 p.m.  so bring your bottle of wine or  three bottles of beer to the  legion by then. If you don't  have anything to enter you can  stuT come and watch. There'll  be a light supper available for  those who want to make an  evening of it. No minors.  NO ASSOCIATION  MEETING  The Roberts Creek Community Association meeting last  week was cancelled because of  the snow. Since there are no  pressing issues to discuss, the  next meeting won't be until the  New Year.  There are a few things to be  thinking about however. There  will likely be a referendum on  dog control sometime in February. The main proposal is for  regular patrol below the  highway once a week and  emergency call-out anywhere in  the Creek. Areas E and F will  also be included.  Serious thought should be  given to the role of Cliff Gilker  Park. The golf course would  like to expand into this area and  if people want it preserved as a  natural forest, the bridges  repaired, and a soccer or soft-  ball field put in, they'll have to  do something about it. Write to  the regional board with your  comments to show you care.  The ladies of the Hall Committee would like some advice  on the purchase and installation  of acoustic tile for the ceiling of  the Community Hall BEFORE  they do it, not after. If you have  any expertise or ideas for doing  it economically please phone  Diana Zornes at 886-2087 or  Chris Luster at 885-5206;  Diana says she's had a lot of  phone   calls   about   the   hew  lighted sign on the highway.  Apparently it partly conforms  to the highways laws and zoning  by-laws but there's a lack of  policy. If you find it offensive  or dangerous you should write  to the regional board and the  Department of Highways.  TEEN CLUB  The Tuesday Night Teen  Club starts meeting tomorrow,  November 26, at the Roberts  Creek Legion. Roberts Creek  teens are invited to come for  games, music, dancing, or  whatever, starting at 6:30 p.m.  Good parent supervision has  been arranged.  FIREMEN'S BINGO  The Roberts Creek Volunteer  Fire Department's big annual  bingo is Saturday, December 7,  at the Roberts Creek Community Hall. The grand prize is  $1000. Tickets are $5 for three  cards, $1 for extra cards.  CHRISTMAS DANCE  The Roberts Creek Legion is  holding a Christmas dance with  Slim and The Pickups on Saturday, December 14. The Ladies  Auxiliary is raffling a hamper  and grocery vouchers. Tickets  are available at Seaview Market  and the legion, and will be  drawn the night of the dance.  Ladies   Auxiliary   members  are reminded to pay their dues  before the end of December.  APOLOGY  I consider the telephone an  intrusion: a pleasant one if the  caller is a friend, a necessary  one if it's somebody with an  item for this column. But  nothing ruins a day faster than a  crank call from a belligerent  reader who just wants to rant  and rave about a typographical  mistake.  I received several phone calls  about the error on the date for  the craft faire last week. Most  people were pleasant and  understanding but Gordie  Spencer evidently took the faux  pas personally.  I'm sorry, Mr. Spencer, if my  mistake inconvenienced you or  anyone else but I can't believe it  was as drastic as you said. I  write this column as a service to  the community, to let people  know what's going on arid giv  ing free publicity to events such  as the craft faire of which you  are a participant.  Sometimes I'm in a hurry,  having other things to do;  sometimes I just don't feel like  doing it for a deadline. I do try  to do a good job but I am  human and I do make mistakes.  Mr. Spencer made a big fuss  and said an apology was not  enough to make up for my  carelessness. He said that he  wouldn't be able to believe the  newspapers again. Since he probably won't be reading this, I  won't bother to apologize to  him but I will thank Chris  Luster and the Hall Committee  and all the other readers who  were confused by my booboo  but were certainly more  understanding.  .*., **> 4>  ir...* . >.... ... __n_,_a_J_> __.

The result  is that premiums will go up  for about 1,500 claim-free  private passenger vehicles,  and down for about  1,400,000. Motorists who  have had a chargeable claim  in the past year will pay more.  (5) RATE GROUPS  Adjustments to most vehicle  groups in 1986 will reflect  lower market values as  vehicles age. With few exceptions, this will reduce  premiums for Own Damage  coverage. The exceptions  will be luxury vehicles  costing in excess of $30,000.  Premiums for owners of  private passenger vehicles  in this category will increase  according to the value of  the vehicle.  1600,000 premiums will be reduced up to S25  ' 390,000 will be reduced by $26 to $50  300,000 will be reduced by $51 to $100  62,000 will be reduced by more than S100  1,500 premiums for luxury cars will be increased up to $25  and a small number will be increased by $100 to $300  MAXIMUM  DISCOUNT 40%  The claim-rated discount for  four or more years of claim-  free driving will increase  from 35% to 40%.   ���".  WEEKLY  PAYMENT INCREASE  The weekly "No-Fault" payments for disability or death  will increase from S115 to  $130 for accidents on or  after January 1,1986.  ��CANCELLATION  REFUNDS  A full pro rata share of the  premium less a fixed fee of  $20 will be refunded when  a policy is cancelled.This  process returns a greater  proportion of the unused  premium than the previous  system.  ��COLLISION/  COMPREHENSIVE  SPLIT  The Collision/Comprehensive package has been split  to make these coverages  available separately. This  presents more options for the  motorist.

WINNERS  Thank you to all the people  who bought Elves raffle tickets.  Remember the raffle that was  $500, or a side of beef. Don  Holland of Gibsons was the  lucky winner.  Here are the winners from the  Clinic Craft Faire which President Ruth Kobus reports was  most successful. Cathy McQuit-  tie won an elephant; M.  Langham won a doll, J.  Johnson won the transformers  robot which I heard people  wishing to win and I don't even  know what it is; a hand-made  quilt was won by L. Nichols; a  pillow by L. Jones; J^urieT  Stiglets also won a beautiful  doll. v  Lioness Club raffle winners  are: the first prize of $100 went  to   Shirley   Dumma;   second  prize,   the   Christmas   food  hamper went to J.

Craft Faire a hit  by Joan Wilson, 883-9606  Everyone in the Harbour was  at the Clinic Auxiliary Craft  Faire on November, 16. Coordinator Ruth Kobus rented  out 28 tables to crafts people  with everything from Christmas  ornaments to custom license  plate holders, cookies to hot  sausage rolls.  Jock Gibson of Garden Bay  assisted with the draws later in  the day. Catherine McQuitty  won the white elephant by local  ceramic artist Pauline Babcock,  Monie Langham the crocheted  doll, and Jean Johnson the  Transformers robot. Muriel  Stiglitz took home the big doll,  while Lily Jones won the  crocheted cushion and Linda  Nichols the afghan. In the  Lioness raffle, Shirley Dumma  walked away with $100, and J.  Summers won a lovely hamper.  No one guessed the name of  Vi Tyner's little dog, but a winner was chosen by number.  IS THERE A DOCTOR  IN THE HARBOUR?  Yes, yes, yes! Contrary to  persistent, rumours, there is  ALWAYS a doctor at the  Pender Harbour Clinic. Dr.  Kerr will leave at the end of  November, but Dr. David  Moore from Fernie will fill in  until our new physician arrives  April 1. .  Dr. Peter Smith is coming  from Ashcroft with his wife,  Dr. Ruth Mcllrath, and their  small child. Dr. Mcllrath is expecting an addition to the family, but will undoubtedly keep  her hand in medicine, too.  Let's welcome them when  they arrive, and help them build  up the kind of practice that will  keep them here in the Harbour.

Coast News, November 25,1985  _rn  , �� It  ^ y*  ^������".-���-  **y;.  :3  IS  DAN WEBBER 1888 - 1985  In all his 97 years Dan Wells lived every day with keen enjoyment. Work for him was never a tedious routine, rather a  satisfying challenge to his patience, his industry.  A man of moderation he readily saw the humour in the little ironies of life and he most appreciated any circumstance  where he could smile at his own expense.  Had Dan watched his own memorial service and heard, in  the hush of the chapel, one of his family quite clearly correct  the clergyman who had twice said Dan's name wrong, I'm  sure Dan would have smiled. And perhaps he did. I'd like to  think so, and remember him as the direct but gentle man who  could smile at his own discomfiture.  In his youth Dan was a farmer-rancher in Saskatchewan,  then for many years the owner of a delicatessen business in  Vancouver, and last and most inportant a long retirement in  Roberts Creek when he built a house and developed his property.  In the early 1900's Dan had come from London, England,  to join his brother on a homestead in the mixed farming  region of Meadow Lake beyond North Battleford. There he  learned to ride, to handle livestock, and to become the practical vet for the farm community.  "The forty miles by team to town for supplies and mail  was an overnight journey," Dan said once.  "Places to sleep were scarce, and the proprietors expected  two farmers to share a bed even though strangers." Dan went  on, "Once the other fellow tried to scare me away by saying  he was lousy, but I said I was too, and had been for years and  besides, I'd picked up fleas big as bumble bees on a trip to  Alberta. Eventually he left the bed to me."  Another time Dan said, "We always needed more hay for  the long winters. Once when we went on horseback with our  neighbours to look for wild hay to cut, we came across a  stranger who offered to guide us to a whole valley of grass,  for a dollar each.  From a hilltop he showed us a great stretch of tall grass rippling in the breeze, and then rode away as fast as his horse  could go. No wonder he left - the lovely grass was growing in  a swamp."  Dan and Kay had married and lived in Vancouver for  many years where they were both in the delicatessen business.  They owned stores on Granville near the Orpheum and in the  Grand Union Market on Hastings. Dan had learned the trade  from his brother-in-law, Arthur Pepper, in Edmonton before  he came to Vancouver about 1925.  While he was in Alberta Dan^said he found he was no  rodeo rider. He folowed a suggestion and entered the Calgary  stampede.  "The man cinching up the belly band at the chute said to  me, 'You've picked a mean one, Slim,? and I next  remembered a hospital bed and a bag of ice on my head."  In 1957 Dan and Kay Wells came to Roberts Creek to their  three and a half acres on Beach Road which they had bought  in 1948. Between them they built their house and cleared a  beach front site.  The garden, open to the sun, flourished with the help of  wheelbarrow loads of seaweed labouriously pushed up the  slope (it must be close to a one in four gradient) from the  beach.  "I wheeled my last load of firewood up that path from the  beach when I was 89," Dan said, "and found it a little difficult. Got some youngsters to do it for me but they found it  tough going."  For many a day to come, recollections of Dan WellsT will  cheer all of us who knew him. J' _  George    in    Gibsons  Search for roots  proves interesting  by George Cooper, 886-8520  Gwen Nimmo has just  returned home to Gibsons from  a month's travel in Britain with  daughter Bobbi and granddaughter Jeneane.  "We visited places where  family roots began," said  Gwen, "with Jeneane driving  our rental car very expertly  throughout the visit."  "We got used to cars overtaking on the. right, and that  happened continuously. When  we went 60 miles per hour we  were the slow ones. The roundabouts? Oh, we did whirl  around the circle two or three  times on several occasions looking for the right exit, but most  were really no trouble."  Gwen said they visited  Paisley, her husband's birthplace, and Nottingham where  her mother's family had lived.  "Although we did not know  of any family members in either  of those two places," said  Gwen, "we did discover  through our hostess at a bed  and breakfast establishment in  Spinnemore of a Nimmo Brewery nearby at Castle Eden. The  brewery had been in operation  for more than a century. And  our hostess went to the trouble  to arrange a visit for us."  "The brewery is now part of  the Whitbread chain, but some  of the staff dug out some of the  knick-knacks that breweries  give to pubs to advertise their  ales and beer. These were  mementos of the days when it  was the Nimmo brewery. I carried all the way home a rubber  doormat with 'Nimmo's Ale'  lettered on it."  Of course the great interest  for Gwen and Bobbi was the  fact that the founder of the  brewery was a family ancestor.  "That's Grandfather," Bobbi said when the staff at the  brewery showed her a  photograph of the founder.  "The family resemblance was  clearly there," said Gwen.  Before   their   return   to  Canada,   Gwen   and   family  visited Dr. Petzold who is on  sabbatical in Bath, England.  DISABLED AND EXPu  The Sunshine Association for  the Handicapped has been appointed to handle the purchase  of Expo tickets for the disabled  in this area.  The tickets are at the same  reduced price that seniors paid  this fall except that they are  available to the handicapped  until January 6 at this reduced  rate.  Call Jack White at 886-2935  for details.  Disabled persons who will require attendants can be provided with complimentary tickets  for the attendants at no cost  Locals seek right to form  labour council  The local labour organization  headed by Linda Olsen of the  Canadian Union of Public  Employees has applied to the  Canadian Labour Congress  (CLC) for a charter to form a  labour council with the right to  collect dues from union  members on the Sunshine  Coast.  CLC business representative,  Dick Larson, attended last  Monday's labour council  meeting, and Olsen told the  Coast News that "things look  pretty good" for the organization's chances of receiving the  charter  "It may take from 30 to 60  days," Olsen said, "but I don't  foresee too many problems, or  too many changes in the way  the organization will be run. We  will have a per capita, (approximately 20 cents a month from  each union member) which will  give us some funds to do things  with."  The present labour council is  comprised of members from all  the local unions on the Sunshne  Coast, but it has no official  means of obtaining funds, nor  does it have official status in the  CLC.

Coast News, November 25,1985  Part of an exhibition of dolls currently showing at the Arts Centre  in Sechelt shows the wide variety of the collection.  ���Dianne Evans photo  Art exhibit  The exhibition at the Arts  Centre, Sechelt, of marionettes  and sculptures by Barbara  Creig, paintings by Kirn LaFave  and a great variety of dolls from  local collections has been  organised especially to appeal to  children as well as adults.  The exhibition will be on until  December 8, and opening hours  at the Arts Centre (located at  Trail and Medusa Streets) are  11-4 Wednesday to Saturday  and 1-4 on Sundays.  The paintings by Kim LaFave  are the original illustrations to a  delightful children's book The  Mare's Egg. For most people  the originals are too expensive,  but   the   book   would   be   a  ^wonderful   Christmas   present  for a child or for anyone who  ���^collects    well    illustrated  ;? Children's books.  ���}y   The dpjbs are all sitting there  ; \vaiting fo Be admired. Some of  'them   are   vey   old.   Thea  :' Leucine's hand puppets (a little  battered by now) come from  Germany and have been used by  a succession of children for a  hundred years. Many of the  dolls have been loved by three  generations of a family.  There are some brand new  dolls, too, expensive collector  dolls or ones bought on recent  travels. Among the most interesting are two Hopi Indian  dolls representing Kachinas  which serve as messengers from  the creator.  Barbara Creig's marionettes  are exceptional. Beautifully  made and dressed, they are also  full of character. Creig is an artist who has always been  fascinated by the theatre, having her own puppet theatre at  one point in her career.  Her sculptures are scenes and  arrangements of objects full of  symbolism reflecting general  philosophic ideas or, personal  " problems. They are complicated  but can be appreciated in many  ways, with viewers supplying  their own interpretations.  ��~  Peninsula  Motor Inn  Hwy 101, Roberts Creek  presents nightly entertainment  Appearing Wed. to Sat.

The 1981 German film,  Marianne and Juliane, directed  by Margarethe Von Trotta, is  the final offering this-fall from  Pacific Cinematheque.  Marianne and Juliane is a  perceptive, sensitive and  ultimately stunning film.  It's the story of two sisters  who were close in childhood.  One of them was the father's  favourite, the younger one,  Marianne, and Juliane, the  elder was the naughty girl, a  radical. When the film starts  they have been separated for a  number of years.  Marianne, the younger sister,  has become a terrorist and  Juliane is an ardent ferninist, a  writer living with her lover in a  lifestyle her sister condemns as  bourgeois. When Marianne is  arrested after a bombing, only a  relative, Juliane can visit her in  prison. It's the revelations of  these visits and a sudden death  that provides the film's perceptive view of the childhood ties  that bind, no matter what kind  of people we become when we  grow up.  It's a beautiful film with  many universal truths. The two  women and their relationship  are going to remain in your  heart and memory.

Music both live and taped will  fill the hall - and Santa Claus  himself is scheduled to stop by  and see how things are going.  Face painting by Kirstin Malloy  will delight kids of any age. No  doubt the Gourmet Booth will  tempt us all.  Among the craftspeople to be  present are weavers Jacqueline  Brown and Lyn Johnson, selling their handwoven wraps,  *vests, hats and scarves. Stained  glass artist Jane Degnan will be  there as well as jeweler Lindy  LeBlanc. Several potters will be  selling their pots, in addition to  woodworkers, fabric artists,  and toymakers.

It hearkens back to such long  gone programs as Lights Out,  featuring walks on the weird  side by such masters of the  genre as Jorge Luis Borges,  Stephen King and Arthur C.  Clarke, plus a host of lesser  known names. Yvonne and I  listened to the show and liked it.  She decided to slant her first  radio script towards this  market.  Vanishing Point uses a lot of  adaptations and Yvonne elected  to follow this route. She wanted  to concentrate on the technique  (sound, music, timing) of radio  scripting and not have to worry  about plot and characterization.  For the next few weeks, she and  I ploughed through several  dozen anthologies of the supernatural, in search of suitable  material. We are both long time  fans of the genre so it was a  pleasant-enough chore. Several  ideas were proposed and discarded. Finally Yvonne unearthed a strange little yarn called  Hie Language of Flowers and  decided to go with this.  Flowers, by Australian  writer, Hugh Atkinson is as offbeat an item as you could with  for. I would be unfair to completely divulge the plot. It involves a prematurely retired  bank clerk called Henry Herman who, to his wife's considerable discomfiture, falls in  love with an orchid called "the  Vanda".  In adapting the story for  radio, Yvonne was faced with  some thorny problems. There  was very little dialogue in the  original work and she was obliged to create voices for most of  the characters. Fortunately, the  writing of believable dialogue is  one of Yvonne's strongest suits.  She crossed this hurdle with no  great difficulty.  There was another dilemma,  however. There are two orchids  in the story who function as  characters and flowers (outside  of Walt Disney cartoons) are  not exactly gregarious. Trying  to convey their actions in a non-  visual medium was no easy task.  Yvonne was able to suggest  most of this through the  dialogue and the use of sound  effects. She submitted the  finished, script to Don Kowa-  lchuk, West Coast Producer of  Vanishing Point.  Kowalchuk was very taken  with The Language of Flowers  (although he allowed there were  technical problems that would  have to be overcome). But  Vanishing Point is not a  regional show and the final  decision did not lie with him.  He shipped it up the chain of  CBC command to Sandra  Rabinovitch, the program's executive producer, in Toronto.  The wheels of the CBC grind  slowly. Yvonne waited for a  couple of months. Finally, word  came wafting back from Central Control. Sandra Rabinovitch also liked the Flowers  script but wanted a rewrite. Her  main objection seemed to lie  with the character of Henry  Herman's wife whom she  perceived as being portrayed in  too bitchy a fashion. (This very  "bitchiness" was an integral  plot element in the original story  but there appeared to be  Women's Lib. considerations.)  Sandra R. was also concerned  that the ending as it stood,  might not convey precisely what  was happening. Rewrites are  pretty much a CBC ritual.  Yvonne went back to the drawing board.  She toned down the acerbic  nature of the wife and adjusted  the other dialogue accordingly.  Clarifying the ending presented,  a more difficult problem.  Yvonne wrestled with it for  several days. Eventually she was  obliged to introduce a narrator  to clarify the odd events that  befall Henry Herman. She shipped the revamped script back to  Don Kowalchuk.  Kowalchuk thought the new  version solved all the problems.  He sent it on to Sandra R., who  concurred. The whole matter  appeared to be in the bag and  Yvonne was given a contract.  Then Sandra R.'s boss decided to look over the scripts on  hand. He saw a copy of Flowers  and pencilled in a whole succession of minor dialogue changes.  Back it came for further  retouching.  Yvonne toiled through yet  another draft. Finally, everyone  seemed satisfied. The Language  of Flowers was given the go-  ahead and a production date  was set for late October, 1985.  The labyrinthine complex of  studies and technical units that  comprise the CBC's West Coast  production facility, occupies  three huge, subterranean floors  at the corner of Georgia and  Hamilton Streets. Its long,  echoing, neon-lit corridors present a confusing maze to the  uninitiated. Both Yvonne and I  have walked these high-tech  catacombs oh a few previous  occasions but we still have  directional problems. On the  day of the rehearsal, we pick up  our passes and enter the electronic under-world.  Producer, Don Kowalchuk, a  dapper, grey-haired man in his  forties, meets us at the elevator  and guides us past a confusion  of doors, to the right studio.  It is like a conference room with  a table and chairs in the centre,  a few chairs scattered around  the perimeters and not much  else. The actors begin to arrive  and Kowalchuk introduces  Yvonne and myself. We are surprised by the size of the cast.  There are several very small  roles we had forgotten about  and (with one exception where  an actor is doubling as a  policeman and a mail clerk)  they have all been individually  cast.  The lead role of Henry Herman has been given to Bill  Reiter, a comic actor of great  talent, probably best known for  his inspired skits on the late,  lamented Doctor Bundolo  Show. 1 have long admired  Reiter's mad sense of humour  but this is the first time we have  actually met. We discuss the  Bundolo Show. Reiter, a big,  bearded man with glasses,  smiles wryly. "That was the  best time of my life," he says.  It is time to get down to'  work. The actors seat themselves around the table and  Kowalchuk hands out copies of  the script. He retires to a chair  at the end of the room and asks  for a run through. The cast  clears its collective throat and  they plunge in. As Yvonne and I  listen in fascination, the ^ctbrs  bring her lines to life. ' 1-yv  Only Bill Reiter (who* as.the  orchid-obsessed husband, carries: the bulk of the dialogue)  has even seen the script before.  The rest of them come to it cold  but they do a creditable job of  delineating the various characters. Roger Norman, an English  actor, we have met before in  Gibsons, brings just the right  amount of hurrumph and  bluster to the role of an English  colonel who gives Herman the  orchid. South African actress,  Marian Eisman, makes Herman's distraught wife, an  understandable human being  and the other actors handle  their smaller roles with alacrity.  Naturally, there are many rough  edges but it is surprisingly good  for an initial reading.  to be continued  Casting call  Driftwood II will be casting for a series of plays to be  presented during the Christmas and New Year season.

Early-rising boommen and loggers know about Vera's.breakfasts  at the Come Home Gafe as well as  fishermen. She starts serving them  up at 5:30 a.m.' and keeps doing it  till the cafe closes in the afternoon  -for those whose need for sustenance has fjerhaps been whetted in  less out of doors activities.  My companion and I had neither  a hard day's work ahead of us nor a  hard night's cavorting behind us  when we went down to" the Come  Home Cafe last week early to fortify ourselves for whatever'life was  going to offer us that day. It's just  that every once in a while you have  to measure yourself against the  ultimate.  In a somewhat daring mood I  decided to measure myself against  the fanner's breakfast, the top of  the line. It comes with three fried  eggs, bacon, ham, sausage, fresh  mushrooms and toast and coffee.  "We don't count the bacon strips,"  is the Come Home Cafe's boast and  in .all truth the platter that was  shortly placed before me was buried  under a mound of bacon strips and  much, much else.  My partner was characteristically  somewhat more cautious and chose  a cheese and mushroom omelette.  Despite her caution, however, she  found herself confronted by a very  substantial breakfast indeed.  If, like us, yours is not a daily  round which demands major fuel  intakes the Come Home Cafe has  much to offer. Bacon and. eggs,  omelettes, French toast, pancakes;  all Come in a variety of presentations and in generous abundance.  Specialties of the house include  Coastin' Toast - which includes a  tangy mushroom and spinach sauce  over melted cheese - and a Special  Western sandwich which incorporates eggs, ham, cheese,  mushroom and onions.  For those who just want to nibble  in the morning, there is, for example, an attractive side order of hash  brown potatoes /and delectable  mushrooms which .isi provided/ for  less than $2. y  y     y^  There is espresso, capuchino, and  cafe au lait to choose from as well as.  a wide selection of teas and herbal  teas and smoothies.: v.       '''^'s^"'.ir'i  For lunch there is rib-sticking,;  soup and healthy and tasty sand^  wiches.

For IS years Sylvia has been  decorating cakes for special occasions always corning up with  the most appropriate designs.  The Tuwanek Ratepayers'  Association has engaged legal  counsel and has had a report  prepared, by Patrick .Teti and  Associates to evaluate the em-  pacts which could result from  the logging of, the steep slopes  behind Tuwanek on District Lot /  3259. '  Ken Kerpan appeared with  the report at the November 21  Sunshine Coast Regional  District (SCRD) planning committee meeting, at which the  Togging compnay, Sunfor's request for a booming ground site  also arose as did a water lease  application from Chales  MacKenzie for an oyster farm  in an adjoining bay.  Patrick Teti, in his report  clearly states-that "In my opinion there is a high probability  that logging activities upslope  from the residential lots could  initiate undesirable slope activity, such as the rolling of individual boulders. The probability of larger magnitude  slope failures would also be increased by logging. All geologic  hazards would be greatly reduced by not logging slopes steeper  than 25 degrees or slopes within  100 metres of residential lots."  The board was reluctant to  pass comment on Sunfor's application   for   the   booming  ground site which lies at the top  end of the lot. It has been indicated that only a relatively  small number of logs will be  taken from Lot 3259 to the pro-  / posed booming ground calling  into question the need for the  facility, and SCRD Planner Jim  Johnstone said that he believed  that the dump would be used in  future years when further logging would be undertaken in the  area.  Planning committee chairman Director Brett McGillivray  referred to a meeting held in  September where 60 Tuwanek  residents gathered, on a Sunday  ntorning, to express their disapproval of any such development  in their area.  "It is clear that recreational  activities are paramount to this  area," McGillivray said. "The  residents have made a great effort and gone to considerable  expense to support their  claims."  The oyster farm application;  was rejected by the SCRD as;  well, because a marine park ex-;  tends into the bay where the;  farm was proposed and the re-j  maining areas are prime for;  parkland and beaches, more in1  keeping with the nature of;  Tuwanek. :;  Lands, Parks and Housing's*  Dave Butler, who is handling;  the. applications, was at the;  SCRD meeting, and agreed to;  hold off on any action on Sun-j  for's application until the  SCRD is satisfied that all the in-|  formation is gathered, and!

A Roberts Creek man was  charged with impaired driving  and refusal to provide a breath  sample on November 16. The  man was apprehended on Joe  Road near Highway 101 after  he exhibited erratic driving  behaviour.  Possible witnesses to the  following incidents of hit and  run are being sought by police.  On November 15, a red Ford  pickup parked in the lot located  behind the Ken Devries building  and adjacent to Wyngaert  Road, was struck by an unknown vehicle causing damages  in excess of $400. The incident  is believed to have occured between 5:30 p.m. on November  14 and 11:50 p.m. on November  15.  The other incident took place .  at any time between 6 a.m. and  2 p.m. on November 19 and  took place in the parking lot of  the Sunnycrest Mall. The vehicle hit is described as a brown  1979 Ford Grenada.  Please contact the Gibsons  RCMP is you have any information.  Information is also being  sought regarding vandalism  done to the grassy area of the  Cedar Grove Elementary  School by an unknown vehicle  on November 17 at 8:15 p.m.  On November 15, willful  damage was reported from  Granthams Landing when one  of the tires belonging to a 1985  Ford Mustang was slashed by  vandals.  SECHELT RCMP  The theft of $1000 worth of  gas was reported on November  19 by the D&D Gulf Station.  Police are still investigating.  Prawn traps valued at $180  were reported stolen from the  Trail Island area on November  19.  Twenty-nine year old Sechelt  man Marvin Craigan sustained  injuries to the head on  November 19 when the truck he  was working under shifted and  fell off it's blocks. Craigan's  head was pinned between the  truck and the pavement.  Craigan was taken to St. Mary's  Hospital for treatment.  Editor:  Re: Solidarity Supports  Wood Bay Residents  I find this letter a little confusing, to say the least. Their  concern over large portions of  the foreshore being handed over  to 'strictly profit oriented  private interest' is stated, then  'A healthy foreshore is essential  in the lifecycle of wild salmon  on which thousands of B.C.  fishermen depend'. The last I  heard our fishermen do not give  all their earnings to charity -they  too are 'profit oriented'.  They ask a lot of pointed  questions, but give no answers.  Then they ask the regional  board, on the basis of the questions, to support the Wood Bay  residents, and take a strong  stand on any public foreshore  use for private profit. If my  memory serves me correctly,  this is the same group who  recently gave a directive to the  regional board in order to get  more work locally. Where do  they expect this work to come  from?

They lose a lot of the time, and  when they do there is no UIC or  any other government program  to assist them. They just pick up  what is left and start again.  Personally, I would like to see  the regional board sit down and  see what assistance they can give  these venturesome people. If  things have been done incorrectly, it has not been the  businessmen who are to blame,  nor is it the residents. It has  been our governing bodies, and  it is time this snafu was cor-  rectedn We NEED this forward  looking idea in our community,  and all the stumbling blocks  that have been put forward by  everyone on the Sunshine Coast  can only make them feel like  throwing up. their hands in  disgust at a small-minded, opinionated, self-serving community that we are presenting to  them. '.\  Karen AdamsOn  Madeira Park  Vaughan expresses concern  Editor:  In the two years that I sat  next to Director Burnside on the  regional board, we had a hard  time agreeing on the time of  day, and afmost always -disagreed on major issues in spite  of this, I feel very strongly that  John Burnside and I had one  thing in common that was not  shared by anyone else at the  table.  This was a strong belief in the  principles of democracy, a com  mitment to represent all constituents fairly, whether or not  they voted for us, and would  not be pressured into supporting a very vocal small minority  of the population when we  could see clearly the interests of  the majority would suffer. We  further refused to trample on  the rights of any minority group  or individual no matter how  loudly the community demanded it.  The telling'proof of this is the  election results. I was clearly the  right-wing candidate in a traditionally right-wing area, and  John Burnside was clearly the  left-wing candidate in a left-  wing area. The fact that we werfe  both turned out by a substantia?  margin clearly shows that the  people of the Sunshine Coast  would rather have puppets than  representatives, and are clearly  setting out to dismantle our  democratic system. j  Ian A. Vaughaiii  Reynolds urges involvement  Editor:  Congratulations to Diane  Strom, Jerry Dixon and Bob  Maxwell for their elections in  Gibsons on November 16.  Congratulations also to the  Gibsons and District Chamber  of Commerce, the Gibsons  Electors' Association, and the  other unnamed factions that  were instrumental in getting  such a large voter turn-out.  I wish to thank the voters  who showed the courage and  wisdom to vote for a relative  unknown such as myself. I am  very pleased with the number of  votes I received even though my  campaign budget was very low  and (I am told) I have an unorthodox approach to campaigning.  The disappointment I feel for  losing my third attempt at serving our town as alderman is  equally balanced by the relief  from the necessry time dedication and possible revenue loss  attended by this position.  "p To the voters that have made  their decision forthe representation they wish for the upcoming  two years, these are a few of the  issues that our council will have  to deal with:  Large per capita debt load;  Expo 86 and the attendant  tourism increase;  The lack of a town lease for  the Government wharf;  The upcoming lease renewal  , for the Department of Fisheries  floats;  The decreased moorage income from the harbour;  An inadequate sewer system  that will cost a great deal of tax  payer money to upgrade for a  long time as the necessary loans  are repaid;  Downtown revitalization that  will be a further debt load to the  taxpayers;  Necessary public works  upgrades that have been ignored  by past councils in order to keep  taxes artificially low;  A method of enforcing the  house numbering system;  Implementation of the official community plan;  Refurbishment of the town's  water storage system;  Economic/employment  issues.  Now for you voters that feel  you have completed your task  by voting in the people you  wanted on council, you have  your choice of sitting back and  assuming that the people you  elected will represent you in ''a  manner you will be satisfied  with, and accept the results of  ed by first becoming informed  -not just by reading the paper ojr  listening to the radio after ttije  fact, but by attending tl\e  meetings where these decisiorfc  are made (ratified?). >  Although I intend to continue  to attend these meetings on  behalf of myself and/or tffc  Gibsons Electors' Association  and Chamber of Commerce,  my views will be tempered b'y  my background and personality. I would hope therefore, that  representatives of the Electors'  Association and Chamber of  Commerce as well as membeft  of the public show a greater interest in the operations of oiip  town -;;  John S. Reynolds  Wilson dedicated  Editor:  I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of you  who demonstrated your trust in  me to handle the affairs of our  area over the next two years.  The numbers of you that turned  out clearly signal that a change  of approach at the board level is  desired. I will work hard to  make that change a positive one  for all of us in Area A, while  trying to bridge the gap that has  grown between ourselves and  our neighbours to the south.  The road that lies ahead is  not paved with easy solutions,  but you have my commitment  to an honest effort on your  behalf. It is difficult to kno$  what the future holds, but '-1  believe that if we start dowfi  that road armed with reasorl  and respect for the rights of in|  dividuals, there can be no limrf  to our progress. It is my pe$  sonal view that a day is dawning  that will see those that care uhtf<jj  toward a common goal; a s'ocie=j  ty where individuals mayylivfe-  with dignity, and words like in|  dustry, employment, and enq  vironment are uttered as a vi-j  sion toward a future, rathe)}  than by voices of despair. $  Once again thank you for  your trust. ,'d  Gordon Wilson!  ��� MISC SERVICES ���  MERIT CABINETS  The best for less  Save up to 30%  on your MERIT CABINETS  until November 30th  p.R.

The minibus is presently being outfitted in Kamloops and  we anticipate delivery in the new  year. Our continued thanks to  the many local contributions  both large and small, and also  for the generous donation by  the Vancouver Foundation,  which has helped to make this  minibus a reality.  Our bazaar was a great sue-.  cess, and despite the difficult  economic times, we realized a  substantial profit. Already  plans are being made for a  Christmas 1986 bazaar, hopefully to be held on November 1,  1986.

Grant dedication  sisters, Mary Gregory and  Audrey Johnson now of the  Sunshine Coast, and Elsie  Matheson of West Vancouver;  by his widow, Gloria, now a  resident of San Miguel Aliende,  Mexico, and by one daughter  Leslie, now Leslie Lewis of  Deep River, Ontario.  The plaque in memory of  Commander Grant is placed  beside the creek on land which  his mother, Greta Grant,  through her friendship with  Larry Labonte, gave as a gift to  the municipality towards the  development of Mr. Labonte's  long-cherished dream of a  future marina.  Because of Commander  Grant's special interest in Canadian youth, his name has been  given to the Navy League Corps  of Gibsons. It seems fitting that  he be remembered here, in this  place where he meant to return,  and where he first learned to  love the sea.  As his "last official duty,"  Mayor Labonte has dedicated a  plaque at the Gibsons marina to  the memory of Commander  Kenneth E. Grant, RCN, who  spent the summers of his  boyhood at the Grant family  camp where the marina is now  situated.  Instead of a hoped for career  as a writer, Kenneth Grant  spent the war years in convoy  escort duty on the Atlantic, rising to the rank of Lieutenant-  Commander. After the war and  a land posting, he returned to  sea as Commander on two Arctic voyages, and then as Commander of the ninth Canadian  Escort Squadron on Nato  manoeuvers. In 1963, involved  as a director of the Sea Cadets  of Canada, he died in a plane  crash. He was buried at sea.  He was survived by his  mother, Geta E. Grant of Gibsons, now deceased; by three  Crimestoppers  . In the early morning hours of  November IS, someone broke  into a local business, Quality  Farm and Garden Supply  Limited, located on Pratt Road,  Gibsons, B.C.  The suspect(s) gained entry  by breaking the window to the  main office reaching inside and  unlocking the front door. Once  inside the following items were  stolen:  1. Eight leather bridals  2. Twenty   nylon   halters,  assorted colours  3. $40 cash  4. One kerosene heater  Total value: $700.  It is also felt that the same  person(s) were responsible for  stealing gas from the large five  ton truck parked near the  premises.  Someone knows something  about this crime and we want to  hear from you. If you have information about this crime or  any other crime call Crimestoppers at 886-TIPS, 886-8477.

SCRD ponders issue  Scantech facing  jc pressure  Public pressure continues to  mount against Scantech  Resources' operations and at  the November 21 Sunshine  Coast Regional District (SCRD)  meeting a delegation from the  Earls Cove Ratepayers'  Association (ECRA) presented  a brief to the board.  The ECRA, represented by  land-owner D.N. LeNobel, emphasized two,points. One is the  historical view of the Earls Cove  area as a residential zone, and  because of that, the unsuitabili-  ty of the construction of a facility to process fish. The second  point is that in May the  residents of the area surrounding the Scantech Earls Cove  property requested that the  SCRD rezone their property  from residential R-3 to residential R-2, and they wish the zoning to proceed.  Legal counsel, engaged by the  ECRA are of the opinion that  by-law 95 is quite clear in its  preclusion of any processing of  fish products, and point to Section 3.6.3, sub-section 2J2 of  the by-law which specifically  prohibits 'incinerating, processing, rendering or canning fish'  in the R-3 zone.  Because of the ambiguities  perceived in the by-law, which  also states that activities related  to the commercial fishing industry be allowed, the ECRA  asks that the board amend the  by-law to "reflect what the area  was originally intended for and  by use still is - a residential  zone". The ECRA believes that  Scantech intends to eventually  manufacture moist fish feed using the offal from its fish cleaning plant, and a taped CBC interview with Scantech director,  Clark Hamilton wherein he  stated this intention, was  played.  "All the people here in this  room tonight are sensible  enough to realize that fish processing facilities in the midst of  a residential neighbourhood  would do nothing but harm to  property values," LeNobel'said.  "The ratepayers of Earls Cove  don't wish this to happen!  Many have paid a premiuih  price to enjoy the peace arid  tranquility of the area."     /  LeNobel went on to tell the  board that he had lived within  one mile of a fish plant  manufacturing fish feed in the  Steveston area, and he assured  the board that "Richmond  stunk in those days."  A letter from Bill Ritchie,  Minister for Municipal Affairs,  was quoted also, indicating that  the minister believes that  "aquaculture developments and  associated processing plants  should be located and arranged  to minimize such negative impacts on existing residential  development as noise and  odour."  The existence of a backeddy  along the shoreline where the  properties in question meet the  water was revealed and the  ECRA quoted a copy of an article from Claggett and Wang,  1974, where the contaminants in  the water from fish cleaning  plants were discussed; the report  says that because of the  'presence of raw protein, fish  oil, air and water, stable emulsions are easily formed, and  persist around the plant outfalls, eventually being deposited  onto beaches, pilings, boats etc.  They are a common source of  complaint, both visually and  from a sanitary standpoint."  Finally the brief brought to  the board's attention a recent  announcement in the George  Cross Stock Exchange newsletter, wherein it was revealed that  Seastar Resource Corporation,  intends to construct a pilot scale  fish feed plant at its North Lake  fish farm near Egmont.  "Wouldn't the board agree,"  asked LeNobel, "that it's not  necessary to have two fish feed  plants in one area?"  The board agreed that the  ratepayers' concerns were  serious, and planning committee chairman Director Brett  McGillivray said that the issue  was larger than the single instance of the Earls Cove problem.  "There's no question that  dealing with this by-law is very  confusing," he said. "The  ratepayers are right to bring up  legal implications. The larger  issue that we must address immediately is the whole issue of  planning in Area A."  Director Jim Gurney agreed  with the ratepayers.  "These people are onto  something," he said. "When  the by-law was drafted there  was no aquaculture. The intent  was to . allow activities  associated with commercial  fishing industry, not to do with  aquaculture." However,  Gurney pointed out that the  SCRD lawyers have the opinion  that Scantech is acting within  the spirit of the by-law,  although this opinion is open to  disagreement as evidenced by  the fact that the ratepayers'  counsel holds an opposite view.  \ Newly elected, (although not  yet inaugurated) director for  Area A, Gordon Wilson, saw  the problem as being part of an  even larger issue.  "The industry has grown so  rapidly that it has exceeded the  bounds that permit it to grow in  an orderly manner, whether  under by-law 264 or by-law  96," he said, pointing out later  that, although some question  exists about the propriety of  Scantech's proposal, the  aquaculture industry itself was  definitely supported by the  board, and every encouragement given to those who wished  to conduct their business within  the SCRD.  The board accepted the  delegation's brief and will continue to monitor the situation.  ingP  ANTIQUES & FINE FURNITURE  Cowrie Street, Sechelt 885-7407  CHRISTMAS SPECIALS  10% OFF  Custom Framing  18 each LOCal  Marine Prints  by William McMurray .

T0%  /  on this day only  Union is looking ahead  Local 111 of the Canadian  Paperworkers Union (CPU)  elected a new executive at last  Wednesday's meeting.  The President is Steve  Holland; First Vice-President,  Terry Duffy; Second Vice-  President, Alex (Sandy) Jack.  The Executive Members are  Angus Matheson, Carl Olsen,  Wayne Greggain, Dave Gant,  Ken Barker, Alan Holt, Bert  ���Verzyl, Gerry Martin, Marvin  Iverson, Graham Webb, Peter-  Power and Gordon Mcllrath.  The Wage Negotiation (1986)  delegates are Steve Holland,  Vern Rottluff and Terry Duffy.  The main employer of CPU  workers, the Canfor Pulp Mill  at Port Mellon has undergone  many changes during the past  year, and layoffs have seen  more than 100 workers out of a  job.  "Things are looking a little  brighter," Steve Holland told  the Coast News. "Canfor is selling a fair amount of pulp  although the price is still low.

It is also felt that  the market will pick up in the  new year, which will mean Canfor may start to break even, or  come close to it."  The CPU and the Pulp and  Paperworkers Union (PPWC)  recently held negotiating  meetings in Vancouver to  discuss next year's contracts,  and it was decided that negotiations with the companies will  start early next year, perhaps in  late January, although the contracts are not up until July 1,  1986 in the case of Port Mellon.  "This was decided in order to  provide some stability in the industry," Holland said. "Our  position too is to bargain directly with the company, and out of  the eye of the media where  much of our negotiating has  taken place in the past."
