Late ferry denied
Ferry traffic
still heavy
Canada Day saw heavy traffic on the B.C. Ferries and extra
sailings were once again
necessary to carry all those
wishing to travel.
CKVU, Vancouver, had
planned a trip to the Sunshine
Coast to view the situation for
themselves, with a view to running a news story on the problems of ferry service.
However, because a return trip
within the time contraints of a
busy schedule seemed impossible, the trip was cancelled.
According to a member of
the news team, B.C. Ferries was
contacted by CKVU but the
corporation failed to advise that
it is possible to ensure a place on
the boat; the operator of a com
mercial vehicle may reserve a
space on the ferry by calling the
terminal ahead of time, and
then being at the terminal one
half hour prior to sailing. This
ensures the commercial vehicle
a space on the boat.
It has also come to the attention of the Coast News that a
short memo was circulated to
the land crew at Langdale on
Canada Day, instructing the
crew to refrain from talking to
reporters should questions be
asked.
To date, a late sailing on Sundays or the Monday evenings of
long weekends has been refused, although such sailings have
been necessary on each weekend
this season.
Report on SCRD
supports planner
"It was nice to see our planner's (Rob Buchan) advice confirmed by a former minister of
municipal affairs," said Alderman John Burnside, at the July
2 Gibsons council meeting.
Burnside was commenting on
the recent report by Dan Campbell on the Sunshine Coast
Regional District (SCRD) in
which the observation was made
by Campbell that proposed
municipal boundary extensions
are the business of the
municipality and taxpayers involved, and that the regional
board should 'hold their
counsel and the provisions of
the Municipal Act run their
course\" ^ position taken by
Buchan early in 1984.
In his report to council from
the SCRD Burnside also
pointed out that there had beten
weaknesses noted in the
budgetary controls over
building inspection and planning.
"In May there were only
seven houses started," said
Burnside, "and there are three
building inspectors." Campbell's
report notes that the building inspection departments costs are
'only 44 per cent offset by
revenue', and recommends a
review of budgetary allocations.
The planning department
budget has increased by 303 per
cent over 1979's budget, according to the report with a per
capita outlay of $20.41 for the
residents of electoral areas.
Canada Day was hot and sunny in Gibsons and there was a large
crowd on hand to watch the dedication ceremonies for the new
Chamber of Commerce Tourist Information Booth in Pioneer
Park. The ceremonies were conducted by the Reverend Alex Reid,
Three month trial period
and Mayors Laurente Labonte of Gibsons and Joyce Kolibas of
Sechelt and Alderman and Mrs. John Burnside were among the
dignitaries present. Chairman of the Chamber of Commerce,
Sheila Kitson, emceed the proceedings. —Dianne Evans photo
Coast recycling reaffirmed
by Val Silver
The recycling committee met
last week to consider the concerns raised in the community
over instituting recycling pickup. Those concerns were not so
much against recycling as
against the proposed curbside
program. The primary concern
was loss of weekly garbage pickup,    y'.;'.;
Recognizing those concerns
as well as the support for the
program we considered alternatives.
Based on the experience of
.: other communities we reaffirmed curbside pick-up as the only
way to get the participation and
- volume required to make recycl-
V ing a success in this community.
The    question    remains
^yhether. tlie^ ^ajorj^^^^
Sign compromise
stiil sought
"Signs are an effective and
economical alternative to more
expensive advertising mediums,"
Cindy Buis, owner of Show
Piece Frames stated in a letter to
Gibsons council. "Without a
doubt, the permanent removal
of my sign will result in the
demise of Show Piece Frames."
Many other businesses
echoed her concerns this week
after Gibsons council decided to
enforce the the sign by-law
which prohibits sandwich board
and other non-conforming signs
until a new, more flexible bylaw can be drafted. The merchants feel confused and angry,
unable to understand the
reasoning behind council's decision.
"Gibsons council is making a
mountain out of a molehill,"
Sheila Kitson, owner of Truffles
candy store said in an interview
last Thursday. "If you look
around, you see other areas using sandwich boards...Granville
Market is an example...It's a
super pedestrian area there!"
Vivian   Chamberlin   from
Hunter Gallery agrees. "When
people walk along, they can see
them (sandwich boards)
...They're not going to fall over
them!"
Gibsons council, however,
disagrees. Another municipality
was sued for millions of dollars
due to injury resulting from an
unenforced by-law. Should the
by-law be rescinded, Gibsons
would risk an onslaught of
garish non-conforming signs,
some of them potentially
dangerous.
Rob Buchan, town planner,
feels that Gibsons is in bad need
of sprucing itself up for the
tourist season and to rescind the
by-law now would be counterproductive. He has placed the
sign controversy as his first
priority and hopes to reach a
satisfactory compromise within
the month.
But still, the merchants want
their signs up.
"It helps business," George
Combas from Pronto's Restaurant says quietly. "Without
business, the town will die..."
community is in support of
curbside pick-up. In order to
make an informed choice we
need more concrete information, especially specific costs
and revenues. To obtain those
figures we propose a trial period
followed by a poll in which
several alternatives, along with
their costs; or savings, can be
presented to the community.
.;. The following, recommendation is being made to trie
regional board. "That a pilot
recycling program begin on
September 8 with one week in
two of recycling pick-up in
place of garbage pick-up;
"That the regional board call
tenders in December on the
pick-up and dump maintenance
contracts on the basis of the information gathered in
September, October and
November.
"That tender be called on the
basis of: a) Recycling pick-up
in addition to regular pick-up;
b) Garbage pick-up service only; c) Recycling pick-up in place
of garbage pick-up on a one in
two week basis d) Recycling
pick-up in place of garbage
pick-up on a one in four week
basis.
"That an opinion poll be
conducted in January on the
basis of the tender prices.
"That the result be binding.
"That contracts be let on the
basis of the results of the opinion poll starting April 1,
1986."
If the regional board accepts
these recommendations recycling pick-up will continue until
the new contract is let.
We stayed with alternate
;, .week -pick-up,becausfe the,trial;
period is short. We do not expect everyone will participate in
recycling every other week but
there will be less chance of people missing recycling week
altogether
The final decision will be left
to the community. The recycling committee is doing
everything possible to make it
an informed decision.
Are we serious about recycling or aren't we? Do we care
enough about our environment
to venture into new ways of
managing our waste?
Many of us do but, many,
rightly, would also like to know
the costs and savings involved.
The January questionnaire
results indicate a willingness to
accept some initial costs to find
out whether we can better serve
our environment and save
money as well.
Sechelt pleased
by merchants' efforts
B.C. Tel's plan to close their Gibsons office took effect on Tuesday, July 2, and led to picketing of the premises by the TWU. A
meeting is planned to discuss the situation this week. See story

Meeting to protest
B.C. Tel cuts
There will be a town meeting at the Legion Hall in Gibsons,
on July 9, starting at 7:30 p.m. to protest the closing down of
services in the area by B.C. Tel.
The Gibsons and District Chamber of Commerce has
agreed to chair the meeting, which will represent church
groups, labour, businessmen and the community at large.
It is sponsored by the Telephone Workers Union, Sunshine
Coast Joint Council of Labour Unions, Solidarity Coalition
and the Unemployment Action Centre.
Restructuring
A drop-in coffee meeting will be held by the Restructuring
Committee at the Trail Bay Mall in Sechelt on Friday, July
12, from 3 to 7 p.m.
Lifesaving week
Gibsons council, at the request of the Royal Life Saving
Society of Canada, passed a motion to proclaim July 14 to 20
Royal Life Saving Week.
"In a province where aquatic recreational and professional
pursuits abound," Doreen Drysdale, president of the RLSSC
stated in a letter to council, "it is important to draw the
public's attention to the need for rescue training."
Residents are encouraged to participate in any aquatic or
recreational activities planned during this week.
village streets on a Saturday.
That afternoon of entertainment was very well done."
Forman was referring to the
Canada Day weekend which,
the mayor and council agreed,
had been a most successful one
for Sechelt and its merchants.
Alderman Graham Craig
echoed Forman's sentiments,
adding that it made for "a very
gay occasion to see people enjoying themselves."
"It's certainly a move in the
right direction," said Forman,
"and it's good to see that kind
of co-operation between the two
groups (Sechelt Street Merchants' Association and the
Trail Bay Mall Association)."
In a less positive tone, the
meeting turned to the problem
of the Sechelt arena which has
been forced to curtail its roller-
skating program.
"It is extremely disappointing
that it is necessary to suspend
operations at the arena," said
Craig. "With the advent of the
summer weather attendance is
off.
"Last Thursday there was no
attendance, only seven on Friday and four on Saturday. But I
must say that Vicky (Speck,
arena manager) did the best she
could." Coast News, July 8,1985  ���  Should there he  an independent  inquiry  It is now more than two months since it first became  clear to the public that things might not be as they should  within School District No. 46.  During those months, charges involving more than 30  children of varying ages have been brought against two  former employees of the district. Those matters now rest,  as they should, within the province of the law.  Whether the allegations are founded or not the fact that  they were made should have been reported to the RCMP  and the Ministry of Human Resources immediately. A  policy requiring such procedure is clearly written in  ministry of education circulars numbers 11 and 175.  It is apparent that this and other reporting procedures  were not followed in School District No. 46.  There are serious questions which must be asked and  answered, without delay.  If the school board finds that its internal politics and  present relationships with district personnel serve as a hindrance to a fair, impartial and thorough inquiry, then an  external inquiry should be called for as quickly as possible.  We must remind ourselves that the raison d'etre for the  existence of School District No. 46, indeed for the entire  education system, is our children.  It is the children who deserve the answers, it is the  children who will be betrayed unless the task at hand is  faced with a firm resolve not to be swayed from the search  for the truth.  Dianne Evans  ...from the  5 YEARS AGO  According to Pender Harbour resident Bill White, 200  subscribers to the South Pender Harbour Waterworks  system have signed a petition demanding that the capital  charge for newly developed lots entering the system be  doubled immediately from the present $1000 to "at least  $2000".  The long awaited Environment and Land Use Committee's 'Howe Sound Overview Study' was released on  June .27, announced environment minister Stephen  Rogers.  10 YEARS AGO  Sunshine Coast Regional Board members have given  formal support to the school board's choice of Lot 12 as  the site.of,anew Sechelt junior secondary.  After fiveVears of work, Ran and Ev Vernon announced  ^that theypipnniebrook Lodge is once again ready to  receive guests. The stately old lodge has been modernized, but .with care to preserve the characteristic atmosphere of this venerable structure.  15 YEARS AGO  Gibsons new fire truck received a workout from some  of the firemen on a recent Sunday afternoon. Six years  ago council set up a capital reserve fund for the purchase  of a new fire truck. The new unit is a 1970 Ford with fire-  fighting apparatus made and installed by Pierre Thibault  in Quebec.  Mr. and Mrs. Howard Cleveland of West Vancouver  spent a cold night when their craft ran aground on rocks  off Worlecombe Island. They were rescued from the  rocks the next morning by the Great Northern 8, outbound from Gibsons, and taken to Lions Gate Hospital  for treatment.  20 YEARS AGO  To commemorate the twentieth anniversary of the  Coast News, directors of the company publishing the  Coast News in Gibsons announce an expansion program  involving a new building, new equipment and improvements, involving expenditure at this time of $15,000.  A note of warning has been issued that unless vandals  stop despoiling the ground occupied by the toilets at the  Gibsons municipal beach they will be closed.  A water system will be a reality soon for Sechelt. As of  June 23 it was reported that connection fees have been  received for 108 property owners to date.  25 YEARS AGO  The traffic problem, ferry delays, and their effect on  real estate sales in the area were the subject of comment  by Vancouver Sun editorials and Gibsons council this  week. Highways minister Phil Gaglardi said he was  powerless to do anything about the problems.  30 YEARS AGO  A $1,250,000 black liquor recovery furnace is being installed at the Port Mellon mill of Canadian Forest Products. Work is now underway on the foundation of the  building to house the furnace.  35 YEARS AGO  Construction may start early this fall on a new six inch  spiral weld water pipe for the village of Gibsons. According to Water Commissioner Wally Graham, replacing the  old Cannery, four inch wooden pipe which has previously  been used by the community will cost $7000.

This picture was taken aboard the Chack ",L~*  Photo courtesy Mr. & Mrs. Charles Merrick  Musings  John Burnside  The bubble of concern over  the teaching of creationism in  local schools had a short life this  outing. It was proposed at one  school board meeting, debated  in the newspaper, then died at  the next board meeting for lack  of a seconder for Trustee Pat  Muryn's motion.  It would be a mistake to  believe that it will not be heard  from again, however.  The fact is that there is a rising tide of fundamentalist  religion sweeping the world,  from the fervid followers of  Ayatollah Khomenei in the middle east to the televised fervour  of fundamentalist churches  primarily in the United States. It  may be true to say that the tide  of religious certainties of  various persuasions has not  been as high since the middle  ages.  Why this should be is an interesting speculation. For  myself I tend to the belief that  the great unspoken fear of  nuclear extinction and the ap-  Teaching creation  parent inability of mankind to  devise a system of co-existence  which sees the world's population adequately fed and cared  for while a minority lives in  relative lavishness has turned  the attention of the poor  towards solutions of other than  man's devisings.  Be that as it may, the purpose  of this musing is to offer one  man's view of the story of creation as offered in the Judaic-  Christian or Genesis myth that  most of us were brought up  with.  In 1960 I was teaching a  grade six class, my first class, in  an elementary school on the  west end of Montreal Island.  It's a funny thing but where the  names of the hundreds of  students I taught in a 15 year  career have virtually faded from  my ken, I can remember the  names of many of that first  grade six class.  It was a little girl named  Diane Ekins who brought the  book to school. It was called  Beginnings. Religious instruction was part of the curriculum  in Quebec elementary schools at  the time. One half hour a week  was required in that subject  matter though the details were  left largely to the individual  teacher.  Beginnings began with the  afore-mentioned version of  Creation from the book of  Genesis. It continued with the  story of the creation of the  world from the point of view of  African Hottentots, North  American Indians, North  American Eskimos, the Maoris  of New Zealand, Hindus, Buddhists, African pygmies, etc.,  etc.  The book made no statement  about any of the legends and  myths except the implicit statement made by placing them side  by side in the context of the  book. That implicit statement  was that all were of equal value;  that in each case a so-called  primitive people had confronted  the majesty and the mystery of  the fact of creation and within  the context of their lives and  awareness had grappled to offer  an explanation.  I am aware that to suggest, as  I do; that the place for the story  of the legend of Genesis has its  place beside other attempts to  explain the unexplainable will  win me no friends among the  committed who seek to achieve  a wider forum and a systematic  presentation of their particular  view. But such is my suggestion.  The place for the teaching of  the legend of creation is in a  poetry class or a literature class.  It is a moving testimony of  man's sense of wonder. As such  it has its parallel legend in all of  the cultures of the world.  The attempt to dress up what  is by some conceived to be the  one the only truth in the garb of  a pseudo-science should be opposed and opposed vigorously.  It is to the school board's credit  that they stood firm against the  introduction of a subjective  faith masquerading as objective  truth.  Maryanne's    viewpoint  Imaginative blueprint for peace  by Maryanne West  Earlier this year the Christian  Science Monitor asked readers  to write an essay from the point  of view of someone living in the  year 2010 telling how a lasting  peace had been achieved. It was  an interesting approach to searching for ideas which might get  us out of our present impasse.  Of the printed essays one  struck me as constructive, providing a blueprint which has  practical possibilities and which  didn't depend upon an initial  disaster to wake us up. 1  It is written by Thomas  Fehsenfeld and takes the form  of a television interview with a  Dr. John McConnell, the man  who initiated the McConnell  network which was instrumental in reorganizing the way  governments react to each  other.  With the summer giving us  time to think, this may be a  good time to quote from this  It begins with an assessment  of the world in 2010 by the interviewer for the MacroNet  Education Network (MN).  "There has been a great  transformation in international  relations during the past 25  years. During most of the twentieth century nations looked  upon war as a terrible but  necessary part of international  relations. War and threats of  war were their final resort when  diplomacy had broken down.  "In the short span of 25 years  this view has almost disappeared. Military budgets  worldwide have dropped to  one-tenth their twentieth century levels, (figures adjusted for  deflation). The incidence of war  has dropped to .25 wars per  year from 1.5 per year.  "Another measure of this  change is that wars have become  less deadly. The last war to  claim 100,000 victims was the  Iran/Iraq war of the 1980's.  Most  wars  today are settled  quickly with the loss of less than  1000 lives.  "To help us understand this  great change welcome Dr. John  McConnell who played an important part in the changes that  helped establish our 'peace  system'. Could you explain how  the McConnell network was  established?"  McConnell: "First I have to  disagree with your statement  that what we have how is a  'peace system'. We have as  many conflicts as ever between  nations - it might be more accurate to say we have a 'conflict  management system'. Peace is  not something that humanity  naturally seeks."  MN: "It would seem that  everyone seeks peace, statesmen  are continually talking about  it."  McConnell: "Of course they  talk about it, but peace has very  little to do with life which is full  of conflict. Nations seek  prestige,   wealth,   power   and  security. They look for peace  only when the wolf is at the  door and usually find the wolf is  not very interested in peace."  MN: "Isn't this just a semantic quibble?"  McConnell: "No. Peace is a  transitory condition. Continual  peace is neither possible nor  desirable because it is through  conflict that ideals are tested  and either reaffirmed or changed.  "Conflict management on  the other hand is a very realistic  goal. It allows conflicts to  develop and find resolution but  directs them away from  violence.  "Our goal with the McConnell network was to find  strategies that wouldd allow for  conflicts of national interests,  but keep them from erupting into violence. In certain instances  we found that conflicts had to  be encouraged in the short run  to keep them from festering into  total conflicts."  Tyner Talk  One man's view of restructuring  by James H. Tyner ?  I see there are groups wishing  to restructure certain: segments; y  of the district. Restructuring  seems to mean the creation of  enlarged municipal areas within  the district���meaning by that  more government.  Furthermore I see that it is  going to be much cheaper���we  are going to get more government at less cost. Perhaps this  may be true for the first few  years before the provincial  government withdraws its  grants of assistance including  road construction maintenance.  But in the long run���more  government for less money?  My! My! Oh well, I suppose we  need a little comic relief in these  stressful times.  We do hear how great it is going to be when we get control of  our own destiny for then we will  be truly free and independent.  How this is to be done by adding more government escapes ;  me - for more government br-    i  ings more laws, more regulations and an ever expanding  bureaucracy. It seems to me the  individual's freedom shrinks as  government grows.  In the beginning, before the  establishment and intrusion of  local government, we had  greater freedom - the government was far away and too busy  to bother with us. We were left  to our own devices, permitted to  make our own decisions and  were not bothered with laws  regulating our activities.  Although we did not have bylaws controlling us and we  could do very much as we pleased, and still the sky did not fall  nor did the seas rise and engulf  us.  In general, the people governed themselves, they respected  the rights of others and did not  infringe upon their neighbours.  They were tolerant of others,  they policed themselves, they  did not construct business  establishments   in   ridiculous  places and did not live in unsafe  houses.  If a man could not afford an  expensive house, he built one he  could afford with neither comment nor criticism from his  neighbours. Tolerance was the  key word - we had a great  measure of freedom.  When the regional district  was imposed upon us without a  vote, much of this freedom and  independence was lost. With  restructuring still more of it will  go and tolerance will disappear.  Nevertheless there are those  who wish to proceed with  restructuring. What motivates  these people is not  known���perhaps some of them  just want to be mayor.  There is no question that  local government has greater exposure to pressure groups who  may be seeking jobs, contracts  or special consideration. Furthermore there is the possibility  of hostilities arising because of  special advantage to one segment of the restructured area.  By restructuring we do not  gain command of our destiny  but give up our right of individual decision. More government does not bring independence and the idea that we  will gain freedom by the  establishment of local government is illusory. With restructuring a handful of people rule  -the rest of us pay taxes.  Even the right of the mayor  and council to rule is severely  restricted for all matters of any  importance approval of the provincial government must first be  obtained.  It may be true that, with the  growth of an area, it will be  necessary to intensify the  regulation of the community  but it is a time that should not  be anticipated or hurried for it is  a day of sadness when one must  give up much independence of  movement.  One should look carefully at  this thing and decide whether  the time for restructuring has  yet arrived. Coast News, July 8,1985  Creek says Highways inconsiderate  Editors Note: A copy of this letter was received for publication.  Copies have also been sent to  the Minister of Highways and  Tucker Forsyth of the local  branch of the department.  Tom Tasaka  Department of Highways  Burnaby, B.C.  Dear Sir:  - I would like to make it  known to you that the Hall  Committee of the Roberts  Creek Community Association  has had a small festival for the  past five years on the same site  each year.  .',:." The community is advised of  the date and general activities of  this festival in the local  newspaper for approximately  three months before its happening.  The reason I'm writing you  this letter is because the local  division of the highways department has planned to replace a  small bridge (in the immediate  area of our festival) with a  Bailey bridge.  The bridge pieces have been  stacked along the side of the  road leading to a round-about  just beside the beach.  Traditionally we have had  tables and stalls with food and  crafts, childrens' face painting,  a dunk tank and a variety of  other activities in the precise  area where this equipment is  stacked. The department of  highways are not planning to  start construction until after July 20, the day of our celebration.  The problem as I see it is that  Roberts Creek is small community but a definite majority  of the community is involved in  the celebrations. Therefore to us  it is seen as very inconsiderate  and a display of very bad manners.  I understand that to  something as large as the  department of highways it is a  relatively insignificant item but  to several hundred of the 'local'  residents���the folk who pass by  here daily or weekly���it is very  significant.  As a powerful group, which  you are, it would be appropriate  for your behaviour to be an example to others, rather than bringing up the rear.  We, the lowly taxpayers  would, I'm sure, like to hear of  your plans for our communities  possibly a minimum of two  weeks prior to their enactment.  Lest you forget, we foot your  bills and the least you might do  is show a basic consideration  for the small communities that  are your raison d'etre..  We   are   now   faced   with  creatively rethinking the lay-out  of our celebration, but this will  not be an easy task as there is  little other convenient space.  It is not apparent to us why  the department of highways  needs to store its hardware in  this particular spot when there is  a perfectly adequate alternative  in the immediate vicinity which  would eliminate our problem.  Nor is it apparent to us why  the department, in all its  wisdom, has chosen the summer  which is the busiest time of the  year to do its bridge replacement.  We use our Roberts Creek  Daze as the major means of  raising funds to maintain our  Community Hall; it is also a  focus for the community and its  children.  We certainly hope some  positive action will be forthcoming in this matter.  Debbie Osier  Co-ordinator  Robert Creek Daze  B.C. Tel states its case  Editor:  I am writing to clarify for  your readers what has happened  to date with the B.C. Tel service  mart in Gibsons, and what present plans are for the area.  The Gibsons service mart, introduced last summer, was a  first in the province. Our aim  was to provide phone mart type  services on a scaled down version to communities not large  enough to support a full phone  mart.  Our experience during the  trial period has been that the  amount of business done in our  service mart is not sufficient to  keep it open on a staffed basis.  We now plan to close the service  mart and replace it with two  alternate points of contact���one  in Gibsons and one in Sechelt.  Similar service���place of  phone orders, drop off and pick  up of telephone equipment will  be available at our projected  service agencies, which will be  associated with local businesses.  We are working toward having both new service agencies  open as soon as feasible.  (The two B.C. Tel employees  who have staffed the Gibsons  service mart on a part time basis  have been offered employment  in North Vancouver after the  June 30 closure of the Gibsons  service mart.)  The result for Gib-  sons/Sechelt area telephone  customers will be more convenient and more cost effective  contact.  Perry Hedman  District Customer Service  Manager  B.C. Telephone Company  Traffic viewpoints differ  Editor:  In response to the letter entitled "No problem" in the July 1,  1985 edition of the Coast News,  I would like to note the following: firstly, Mr. Prentis notes  that his children "receive a  lesson in flying, propelled by the  toe of my boot", if they're  caught playing on the highway.  Our oldest daughter is also  disciplined for playing on the  road, but there is quite a difference between three and 13,  the age of Mr. Prentis'  youngest.  Secondly, Mr. Prentis states  he would like to shake the hands  of the drivers who killed the  dogs. He says one of the dogs  was a nuisance, but I wonder if  he would also consider it a community service if someone hit a  child he considered a nuisance.  Also, I ask him, would he like  to shake the hand of the drivers  who hit two of his children?  In regards to the speed limit,  all my wife and I are asking,  along with our landlord and  some other concerned individuals, is that the speed limit  be reduced to 50 kilometres per  hour from the McNair Creek  bridge to the Port Mellon mill, a  stretch of approximately one  half mile.  Most importantly, I would  like to extend my deepest thanks  to the management of the Port  Mellon mill for the notice on  their billboard, and to the great  many people who have taken  note. Your concern and cooperation have definitely been  noticed and are greatly appreciated.  Dan Lane  Port Mellon  Goeson gives thanks  Trower's rebuttal  Editor's Note: A copy of the  following was received for  publication.  Ed Kisling  Regional Director  MacKenzie Riding  B.C. Social Credit Party  Dear Mr. Kisling:  My, my, aren't we touchy? I  was rather amused by your  over-reaction to my Expo piece  "Trundling into the future". I  suggest you read the article  again in its entirety. There are  two very different schools of  thought on Expo and I was fair  enough  to quote both of them.  The statistics you trot out are  all very impressive and I have  no reason to question them. I  have no doubt that the exposition will engender a large  number   of   temporary  jobs,  creating an illusory economic  upswing in 1986. The fact remains that the province is in a  seriously depressed state and no  amount of multi-million-dollar  mumbo-jumbo is going to turn  that around. Expo is, at best, a  stopgap solution; a highly-  expensive piece of misdirection  from the very real problems that  beset British Columbia.  You say that much of Expo's  funding comes from lottery  revenues. Might not some of  this money be utilized more  realistically on more enduring  projects such as new hospital  wings? After all, when the exposition has run its course, Vancouver will be left with nothing  but a jungle of empty  pavillions.  Peter Trower  Gibsons, B.C.  Editor:  My   thoughts   for   today.

The children received Canadian flags, Canada pins,  balloons and colouring books  printed by the federal government in honour of International  Youth Year 1985 and Canada  Day.

Honourable Eric Neilson  Minister of Defense  Ottawa, Ontario  It has come to our attention  that U.S. submarines travelling  through the Gulf of Georgia  may soon be carrying Tomahawks, a sophisticated sea-  launched Cruise Missile. That  the Canadian government can  allow nuclear weapons-carrying  vessels into our waters, while  ostensibly pursuing the path of  a neutral, non-nuclear power  seems rather hypocritical. We  are in full agreement with the  proposals of the Nanoose Conversion Campaign.

Tel  referred to its family as their  flesh and blood  employees���service representatives, operators, linemen, etc.  Now we find that B.C. Tel considers service booths, phone  booths, etc. as "members of the  service family" with which  (whom?) they appear to be  replacing two very informative,  pleasant, long time employees,  and residents of the Coast. The  timing of the B.C. Tel ad in  local newspapers seems to imply  this.  So much for good "corporate  citizens".  We object to jobs being lost  on the Coast and we will be at  the telephone workers meeting  on Tuesday night to protest this  action. We hope you will be  there too!

Seventy-six dollars prize money was graciously  donated to the Sunshine Coast Navy League.       ���Leif Petersen photo  George    in    Gibsons  Canada's birthday  by George Cooper, 886-8520  Gibsons modestly celebrated  Canada's birthday July 1 with a  fitting ceremony at Pioneer  Park.  In his address of dedication  of the new information booth at  the park, Reverend Alex Reid  very ably pointed out that the  dedication was really an  acknowledgement of the community efforts of our pioneers,  some of whom were buried  there in the park, and to the  volunteers, the garden club,  who have made the park a place  of joyous colour. Thank you,  Alex, for drawing all of us there  into joining with you in this  dedication.  The Sechelt Legion pipe band  added a dash of colour and a  happy note with those stirring  familiar tunes. Now if they had  had a full parade of Navy  League, Sea Cadets, Scouts and  Guides, and representatives  from the Legion, for example,  to lead along Marine Drive,  Canada Day would indeed have  come alive in Gibsons.  That is all we need really���a  simply ceremony with some  words from our mayor, and a  parade. Then at Sea Cavalcade  time, which hard-working committees have kept going over the  years, we can have fun at sports  and socials and fireworks, and  enjoy the carnival spirit.  Well the flag went up and the  flag came down to the dismay  of some of the assembled  citizens. Let us explain that the  cadet and the end of the flag  rope didn't meet comfortably.  Later the flag was hoisted again  to fly for the day���Canada  Day.  COMMENDATIONS  In last week's reporting of  athletic successes by students of  Roberts Creek school some  commendations were omitted.  "Parents worked hard to  raise funds," says Jack Tiernan,  coach, "and most of our expenses were covered by this  means and by my own contributions." He added, "We did use  some of the generous donation  that the Elphinstone Recreation  Association gave the school, but  1 do want the efforts of the  parents acknowledged, too."  Roberts Creek sets a brilliant  example of community spirit in  so many ways, their printed  history Remembering Roberts  Creek 1819 - 1955, for example,  and so many other projects.  So we're glad, a little late, to  acknowledge the assistance of  parents in getting the young  athletes to all those track meets  this past spring.  Daze update  July 20 is the big day for  Roberts Creek Daze, although  July 19 will see the game we've  all been waiting for between the  Roberts Creek Volunteer Fire  Department and the Roberts  Creek Legion Ladies.  Organization is now complete  for most events although contestants are still needed for the  lip synch contest; call Dorothy  at 885-5033 to register.  We can always use volunteers  to help out with ticket sales and  kids' games as well as being on  hand to pitch in wherever the  help is needed as the day goes  by.  During the day on Saturday  there will be a baseball tournament at the elementary school:  between games there will be  bike races for the kids, with  categories, six to eight years,  nine to 10, and 10 to 12 years.  Call Peter McNea at 886-3994  or turn up on the day at the  school grounds.  Tickets are going fast for the  Mr. Roberts Creek ��� Contest  Saturday night, when seven of  our finest citizens will vie for the  honours as Mr. Roberts Creek  1985.

Roberts    Creek  Firemen answer call to duty  by Jeanie Parker, 886-3973  ." The Roberts Creek Volunteer  Fire Department responded to  two calls on Sunday, June 30.  At one o'clock in the morning a  fire in some logs on Lockyer  Road was quickly extinguished  and the firemen were soon back  in their beds.  That   evening   a   little   girl  reported   a   house   fire   but  .'couldn't tell them where she lived. Her name was unfamiliar to  .#ny of the firemen and the  ;phone number she gave could  not be traced. Everybody was  concerned and a concerted effort was made to track down  the fire but eventually it had to  be written off as a stupid prank.  CARPENTER BACK  Bob Carpenter will be perfor  ming at the Roberts Creek  Legion this Saturday, July 13.  He hasn't been at the Legion in  some time so all his fans are  urged to come out. Members  and guests only.

A sale of duplicate  books and discards will be held  in   conjunction   with   Roberts  Creek Daze.

The Slow Cycle races had  to be put on another day, but  Andy reports a good turnout.  The Lioness Club fed pancakes  to about 500 hungry people over  the three days. The Shriners'  "Cheer Garden" seemed well  attended, too.  It was a long portage at  Canoe Pass for the three canoe  teams entered, but the fellows  really put their all into the race.  First place went to Bill Har  bord and Jaka Fraser, with the  second place team of Martin  Anderson and Dave Christian  close behind.  Third place canoe with Ernie  Phillips and Marty Mahovlich  received a big cheering  welcome. These two intrepid  competitors had never canoed  before, but kept going to the  end.  The Scow Race: well, that  was a different kind of boat  race. Three teams entered,  Tillicum, Garden Bay firemen  and the Pender Harbour  Aquatic Centre.

A CALL FOR HELP  This is an appeal for any of  you ladies who may be able to  give a couple of hours of your  time to help out a good cause.  At Shorncliffe Intermediate  Care facility there is a little gift  shop which has proved to be a  great boon to the residents.  There is however a shortage  of people to man it during the  summer months as most of the  regular volunteers are either on  holiday or have a houseful of  company. Hours are from 10 till  noon on Monday, Wednesday  and Friday.  Even if you could manage  two days a month you would be  as welcome as the flowers in  May if you gave Irene Duff a  call at 885-5930.  A HAPPY TOURIST  Our household was graced  last week by the presence of a  very charming young girl from  South Carolina whose holiday  was made complete by a really  nice gesture. She was on the  beach hunting for pretty shells  to take home when someone  gave her a real beauty, obviously this gift will be treasured  forever.  reliable source that the firemen  cheated! Is it true, or just a  vicious rumour? Come,  firemen, vindicate your honour!  Actually, from the finish, it  looked like great fun for  everyone. The Aquatic Centre  had the prettiest scow and by  far the best looking team.  The Lioness raffle was won  by Moni Langham, and second  prize by Leah O'Neill of Sechelt  who I'm told, is Dot Silvey's  daughter. Congratulations,  ladies!  It's never too early to plan for  next year's Happy Days. Proposed events include a shorter  canoe race as well as the long  one, so some of us smaller competitors can enter. Ladies, get  your paddles out for next July  1, and we'll have a great time.  LIONESS CLUB  The Lioness Club would like  to thank Pender Harbour merchants for their support. The  ladies raised a staggering $87  Sechelt mining  exploration starts  The board of directors of  Candol Developments Ltd. has  announced that an eight hole  drill program of approximately  2800 feet has been completed at  their Sechelt limestone-dolomite  property, according to a news  release issued by Rudolph  Riepe, director and vice-  president of the company.  The company is encouraged  by visual inspection and assay  returns which confirm Wright  Engineers' opinion that  "systematic geological exploration is warranted to assess the  technical and economic  possibilities of bringing the prospective project into a commercial operation".  Geological work done by  Wright Engineers Ltd. and  others have indicated large  reserves of high quality white  calcite for industrial fillers and  dolomite for magnesium metal.  Mr. Marvin A. Mitchell, P.  Eng., has been retained by Candol Developments to direct an  exploration program which is  designed to upgrade some of the  tonnage to a 'measured'  category. The indicated and inferred reserves are 27 million  tonnes of limestone and 117  million tonnes of dolomite.  Exploration is expected to  commence immediately and to  continue throughout the rest of  1985.  per member in their short life,  and returned much of it to the  community. Some of their other  donations went to the CNIB,  Diabetes Canada, and the  Hospital Auxiliary. The ladies  also sent a handicapped child to  summer camp and gave books  to the elementary school library.  Thank you ladies for your  work in our community. We  can all support the Lioness Club  by purchasing Lucky Leo Lottery tickets from them starting.  July 1. Watch for the gals in  green and white!  WELCOME TO THE  HARBOUR  Pender Harbour has several  new residents. Candice, wee  daughter of Donna and Brett  Clay, and Kathryn, the  daughter of Tim and Donna  Shapcotte, made their debuts  into Harbour society in the past  month, and both are a delight to  their parents and big brothers.  Mrs. Lilian Mark has moved  to Pender Harbour to join her  son and daughter-in-law Murray and Mavis. The entire Mark  clan has now taken up residence  on Rondeview Road. To all  three ladies, a warm Harbour  welcome!  GREAT WEATHER  Isn't this hot, dry weather  great? Visitors stay longer when  the sun shines, the beach is so  close, and boating couldn't be  better.  Our gardens dry out, so we  use the sprinkler more and  more. Stop right there!  As much as I love my  garden;, I have let my lawn go  rather brown so that I don't use  too much of our valuable water  supply. Please obey the sprinkling restrictions, and try to be  wise in the use of water. If you  had a fire, and there was no  water to put it out, you'd be  very glad that the people in  Pender Harbour had taken care  with the water.  Coming Soon To The Sunshine Coast...

Gibsons Harbour is more than  ever one of the interesting places to spend time.     ���Diane Evans photo  Shuttle bus service  starts up in Gibsons  Thanks to George Giannokos  and the Student Venture Loan  program, Wayne Sim and Grif  Francis are in business,  operating a shuttle bus service  between the ferry terminal, and  upper and lower Gibsons, including the marina and Pratt  Road.  The students, who will be  returning to their studies in the  fall, are meeting every ferry arrival, and also making runs to  the terminal for departures, including the early morning ferry.  The fares range from 75 cents to  $1.25.  "I want to see the community  make use of this service," said  Giannakos in a conversation  with the Coast News,  "these  kids are working for themselves. I got them the permit for  the service, and they are using  our van, but the money they  make is theirs for their studies."  When Wayne and Grif go  back to school in September the  service will continue although  on a less frequent schedule; next  year they will have priority in  being hired to run the service  throughout the summer months, according to Giannakos.  The schedule which appears  in this issue of the Coast News,  is subject to public input; if you  feel another run would make a  difference please let either one  of the drivers know, or call  886-2325.  Local student is  tt  shining success"  Twenty year old Clinton  Mahlman of Gibsons is one of  the British Columbia Institute  of Technology's (BCIT) most  shining success stories to emerge  out of this year's crop of  graduating students. Not only  did he receive one of the highest  cash awards at the School of  Management Graduating  Award ceremony on June 13,  but has also landed a plum job  with his benefactor, London  Drugs.  After participating in the  London Drugs Evaluation and  Training program during the  last semester of BCIT's two-  year Administrative Management program, Clinton was  selected from 25 students to  receive a new $1500 award  created by London Drugs to  recognize scholastic and personal achievement by a student  in the program. He was also offered a permanent position with  the company as sales supervisor  in the Pacific Centre branch.  The award was the single largest  one presented at the ceremony  and is meant to reflect the value  placed on the recipient by London Drugs.  Clinton, whose family has  lived in Gibsons for about 50  years, has always been an  achiever.   He  graduated  from  Elphinstone secondary school  with the Ex-Elphi Award for  Top Aggregate Student and  numerous other honours. In his  first year at BCIT he was  awarded the Shell Canada  Management Potential Award  and the Institute of Chartered  Secretaries and Administrators  Scholarship.  Clinton's father, Clifford  Mahlman, has been active in the  community for many years. He  has been Gibsons's volunteer  trainer fireman for 30 years,  was active in establishing the  ambulance service and is Loss  Prevention Supervisor for the  Canfor Pulp and Paper Mill.  Mother, Joan, is also active  in many organizations on the  coast, including the Ratepayers'  Association and the March of  Dimes.  Older sister, Melanie, also a  gradute of the BCIT Administrative Management program, now works for the Institute of Computer Systems  Co-ordinator.  Grandmother, Olive Graham,  now 85 years old, is a long  time resident of Gibsons, setting here nearly 50 years ago  with husband Wally and settling up the local hardware,  barbershop and other stores.  Sechelt taxes  slow to come in  Approximately 75 per cent of  current taxes have been collected, according to Sechelt  clerk Malcolm Shanks in a  report made at the July 3  Sechelt council meeting.  Still to be collected are  $254,000, a little better than  1984. said Shanks.  Of the 1984 arrears, only 25  per cent have been collected,  leaving $127,000 still outstanding. Delinquent taxes fare the  worst, with a seven per cent collection rate, leaving $73,000 uncollected. Total of taxes owning  is $454,000.  Shanks said that a term  deposit has been taken out for  30 days, using taxes already  paid; this, on redemption, will  give the village sufficient funds  to pay the various agencies for  whom the village collects taxes.  "Is there any merit in allowing people to pay twice a year,  say in June and December?"  queried Alderman Ken Short,  who, along with the rest of  council were concerned that the  village would have to borrow  money to undertake public  works programs.  Shanks said that it was possible to do that, as well as paying  taxes in monthly instalments  throughout the year, in order to  avoid the hardship of finding a  large sum at tax time.

Coast News, July 8,1985  n���*mmm*mmm*������,  \\WmM^M^^��^I^_W^M  by Peter Trower  Things were not always rosy  for Barbara in Toronto.  Sometimes there were long  periods between acting gigs. For  a time, she was reduced to doing  calligraphy for restaurant  menus. Fortunately, at this low  ebb, Barbara ran into her old  friend, John Gray, again. He  cast her as the female lead in the  touring company of his new  musical, Rock and Roil. This  brought Barbara briefly back to  Vancouver.  In 1982, Barbara landed her  first starring role in an independent Film - Teli Me That You  Love Me, directed by Tzipi  Torpe. Her co-star was Nick  Mancuso, another Canadian actor of great skills, whose career  is also booming. The picture  was made on location in Israel  and Barbara remembers the  months she spent there as: "the  happiest of my life". She cites  Tell Me That You Love Me, as:  "a low-key but pretty nice little  Canada Day celebrations at Dougal Park included live music and  this upbeat version of Red Riding Hood. ���Leif Petersen photo  Undercover review  Great gardening book  by Betty and Perry Keller  It is one of the peculiarities of  Canadian publishing that 90 per  cent of the current year's books  are released in the period between the middle of August and  the first week of December to  cash in on the "Christmas  market".  On the other hand, it is a  peculiarity of Canadian  bookselling that a book's shelf-  life is deemed to be three months, that is, it is assumed that  the buying public will have lost  interest in any book three months after it is released.  Therefore, most booksellers  routinely return unsold books  (except American best-selling  trashy novels!) to their  publishers three months after  the arrival.  These two little quirks of the  Canadian industry create what  we have dubbed the  "Reviewer's Dilemma". Obviously, no reviewer can tell his  readers about every book that  appears on the market in the  pre-Christmas crush or even by  early March when the three  month period is up for the last  of them. So a lot of good books  are reviewed long after they  have disappeared from the  bookstores.  What to do about this situation?  You as readers can get copies  of those vanished books by  simply asking your bookstore to  order a copy for you. Don't accept that old line about it being  no longer in print; in almost  every case of a book released  within the past three years, there  will be hundreds of copies  languishing in some publisher's  warehouse just waiting for your  call. Any good bookseller will  be glad to order one for you.  We as reviewers can persevere  after that magic three month  deadline so you won't miss out  on any of the good ones, and we  can tell you about the new  books as fast as they arrive on  our desks. Which brings us to  the good news at hand - this  week the mails have brought us  a nice big pile of new releases  that we're anxious to share with  .you.  The first of them is a new  gardening book, Weeds and  Seeds: A Gardener's Companion by Peter Weis. With all the  gardening books available  already, why raise hosannas at  the release of another one?  Well, this one is written by a  Salt Spring Islander who provides his local paper with a  regular gardening column, and  this man believes there's a place  for weeds in every vegetable  garden! Now, we've always had  weeds growing amid our veggies  but they're there as a result of  laziness not design.  Peter Weis allows weeds to  grow amid the peas and carrots,  keeping them sheared to a two-  inch mat that acts as a living  mulch, and he swears that he  gets better results than with bare  ground. In fact he insists that  this ground cover provides a  haven for "armies of little black  tireless hunting spiders" that  even save his carrots from wire-  worm infestation!  How nice to have found  justification at long last for our  brand of lazy gardening!  Weis's book is arranged by  the month, dealing with the  gardening chores that must be  attended to as the season unfolds, but it also has an index at  the back of the book (with a  separate section for flowers and  vegetables), so that you can find  information as you require it.  We found many useful tips  for gardening in our very special  climate - tips that we plan to use  in the next few months - and it  was nice to learn them from  such an articulate and humorous gardener/writer. Hopefully  Weeds and Seeds is the beginn-  ng of a series by Weis.

On her return from Israel,  Barbara decided to holiday in  Los Angeles for a week or two.  It was a fortuituous decision. At  a party, Barbara was introduced  to an agent who urged her to  test for the lead in Thief of  Hearts, a major Paramount  production. "I didn't figure I  had a prayer," says Barbara,  "but the guy seemed sincere so I  took the test."  It proved to be Cinderella-  time. There were 300 actresses  vying for the part, some of them  established names. But against  all likelihood, Barbara won the  role.  Thief of Hearts stars Barbara  as Mickey Davis, an interior  designer, who is seduced from a  lacklustre marriage to live out  her fantasies with a street-wise  burglar, played by the impressive new actor, Stephen  Bauer. While Thief Of Hearts is  flawed by a script that lacks  credibility and depth, it is certainly not a bad picture and  received generally kind reviews.  The cast is fine and Barbara is  outstanding as the confused  heroine.  "The movie really opened  doors for me," Barbara says.  The major door it opened is a  prime role in Richard Pryor's  Winemaker  to visit  by Ruth Forrester  A treat is in store for all who  love good wine and would like  to know more about the making  of a good wine.  John Schreiner is a man who  really knows his subject, so  don't miss this very special  event at the Festival of the Written Arts in August.  John Schreiner, author of  The World of Canadian Wine  (1984) will be at Greene Court  in Sechelt on Friday evening  August 16 to share an evening  of wine tasting and talk of what  Canadian wineries have to offer  the discriminating palate.

Barbara is particularly enthused about this  latest project, now in its last  weeks of shooting.  "It's a great part. I play  Richard's honky wife back in  the sixties. I'm the lady who  gets him to quit doing straight  stand-up comedy and switch to  the outrageous, off-the-wall  racial stuff. I also turn him on  to drugs so I'm a pretty influential person in his life. We break  up eventually over the racial  thing."  Barbara is keeping some  distinguished company these  days. Recently, at the Director s  Guild Awards, she had dmner  with David Lean and his wife.  Barbara was extremely taken by  the esteemed director of  Lawrence of Arabia, Doctor  Zhivago and A Passage To India. "He's extremely nice - a  real gentleman. He reminds me  a lot of my maternal grandfather." ,    ,,   A  Barbara also met and talked  with Hollywood veteran.  Frank Capra, at the same affair. She was almost equally impressed.

Getting in  bed involved climbing up a narrow iron ladder about three  metres which gets you to the  ceiling of the train where the  light bulb and loud speaker  assault you occasionally during  the night and at 6 a.m. There is  no question that this was the  most uncomfortable night I  have spent ever.  Jake and I shared one while  Meegan and Carol shared the  other. I kept wondering if ac  commodation in a concentration camp would be better. It  was unbearably hot, the bed  would have been skinny for  one, much less two (and  besides, I'm not skinny), and on  top of that there are 250 million  smokers in China, a good portion of which-seemed to be on  this train; so we were inundated  with second hand smoke.  Carol was actually having an  ever rougher time because  Meegan's temperature, which  had subsided somewhat during  the day, was back up to 103  degrees and she kept having to  "run" to the toilet.  I'm not really complaining  about this scene,  in fact, in  retrospect, it is somewhat  humourous (although not at the  time). Life on the train should  at least be mentioned briefly.  The hard seat section was total  chaos. Many farmers have loaded all kinds of goodies on,  which lie in the corridors, there  are only seats for about 50 per  cent of those in each car, and  many of these people are on the  train for 24 hours or more.  In our car there was a duck  tied up under one of the sinks.  It was gone by morning and  Jake is convinced someone got  hungry in the night.  And I must mention spitting.  I know why they say  "hacking"! Everywhere in  China you hear the deep chested  hack and then they let it fly.  Somehow (at least to me) it conjured up an image of an old  man who smoked most of his  life; however, when it comes  from the rather attractive  woman decked out in shirt,  nylons and blouse sitting next to  you on the lower bunk, (this  becomes the seating during the  day) the image is somewhat  changed. Apparently there is a  campaign to curb this behavior.  Its success would be as likely as  getting kids to eat spinach in  North America.  Being a geographer I could  not keep away from looking at  the landscape outside the train  window. Perhaps impossible to  fully describe the mosaic of activity, field patterns, limestone  mountains, and colours. From  the Guilin area and for the next  24 hours on the train we travelled ever upward (eventually to  1800 metres) in what is known  as Karst topography. The slight  acidity of rainwater washing  these limestone hills for hundreds of thousands of years has  created spectacular ranges of  sawtooth mountains. As it came  to sunset it was very similar to  the classic Margraff prints of  the Sunshine Coast. Only here  the never ending rows of mountains jut up into the twilight and  it is difficult to tell if some are  simply an illusion while others  are not.  And the soil is fertile. It is  predominantly a rice growing  area, so one sees the various  stages of planting; from the  water buffalo up to their chests  in mud with the farmer at the  same stage with a wooden plow  behind, to women bent over all  day placing each seedling in its  exact row, to rice which is nearly ready to harvest. It is an  amazingly peaceful scene. Kids  have their part to play also as  they tend the chickens, ducks,  and eventually lead the buffalo  back home in the evening. It is a  tough existence that sees the  farmers in bed in their stone  houses with slate roofs when  night falls and out on the fields  at first light. Nothing seems to  have changed for hundreds, if  not thousands, of years. They  are farming the same way today  as they did in the past - and it  works!

Gibsons  886-7112  Liberals hold  Lang Bay workshop  by Joan Wall  This lovely young lady was a delightful part of Pender's Happy  Days last week. ���Joan Wilson photo  On June 8, local members of  the B.C. Liberal Party attended  a workshop at the Lang Bay  Hall, Powell River, along with  members from Powell River.  They were there to discuss  "grass roots" policy recommendations to be passed along  to Michael Sharp, chairman of  policy and research.  Fall Fair planned  To remain active and responsive on the Coast, community  groups need constant exposure  and new recruits with energy  and fresh ideas. Here is a  chance for your group to accomplish both and have a good  time, too.  The Volunteer Action Centre  is organizing a Volunteer  Harvest Fair on the Saturday  following Thanksgiving, October 19 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.  at the Sechelt Indian Band  Community hall.  The purpose of the fair is  twofold. First, it will provide  your group with a unique opportunity to enlist new recruits.  Second, it's another chance to  tell the public about what you  do and, if you wish, raise funds  at the same time.  Here's what we're planning  for the day - balloons, clowns,  live entertainment, door prizes,  refreshments and a contest  where all kinds of homemade  preserves, jams, jellies, wines  and other "fall fare" will be  judged.  Your group is invited to join  in the festivities. Set up an  original, informative, colourful  display about your work. Bring  along raffle tickets, crafts or  other items you want to sell.  Please limit edible items to baked goods or preserves. VAC will  be operating a food concession  throughout the day from the  kitchen.  Table fees are $8/table for a  straight display; $15/table if  goods are to be sold. This  money will go to cover costs for  hall rental, advertising, entertainment, etc. Tables are three  feet  by eight  feet and  your  group can have approximately  50 square feet of floor space  altogether.  This fall we encourage you to  join in heightening community  spirit on the Coast. The more,  the merrier; the bigger, the better. We've given lots of notice,  so you'll have plenty of time to  get ready.  If you or your group want to  participate, please call 885-5881  and a registration form will be  sent to you.  The resource speakers were  Mr. Collin Palmer, mayor of  Powell River, who gave the  gathering some food for  thought when he spoke of  "Future Prospects for the  Coast".  The second speaker was Mr.  Keith Sharp, products manager  for MacMillan Bloedel. His  depiction of the problems facing the forestry industry in B.C.  was graphic, well-documented  and prompted spirited discussion.  After a break for lunch, the  participants divided into two  groups; one discussed regional  economic concerns, the other  discussed the forest industry.  A discussion of the B.C.  fishing industry was tabled to a  future workshop, as the  members felt that the problems  in that area merited a workshop  of similar length. At that time,  briefs presented by the Pacific  Trollers' Assocation will be  studied.

There were a total of 17 teams  in three divisions participating.  There were 11 local teams and  six out-of-town teams, the out-  of-town teams coming from  West Vancouver, Aldergrove,  New Westminster and East Burnaby.  In the Mosquito Division,  Aldergrove took top prize with  the local RCMP as runner-ups  and Elson Glass took third. In  the semi-final game, Stanley  Jones drove in the winning run  for the Mounties. In the final  game, the Aldergrove Dodgers  kept their unbeaten record in  the tournament intact with a resounding 18-6 win over the tired  RCMP gang. Brad Wingfield,  Rodney Hickman and Mike  Lewis led the Mounties hitting  and kept the team in the game  until Aldergrove broke the  game open with three runs in  the third and six runs in the  fourth inning.  The local Yarmola team, tied  the East Burnaby Braves for the  Bronco Trophy, the Yarmolas  were undefeated going into the  final game, but met a "hot"  East Burnaby ball club. Kevin  Wakahara and Jeff Wong led  the Braves in the 23-15 slug fest.  Each had four hits and six  RBIs. John Henderson and  Torin Lee did well in a losing  cause. Henderson and Lee went  4/5 with Lee getting three  doubles and a home run and six  RBIs.  The slug fest saw a total of 43  hits (14 doubles and two home  runs included). The Braves sealed the win with a eight run sixth  inning. Kem's took third spot in  the tourney, losing to the Braves  in the semi-final. The Braves  won a wild 19-18 contest, Ryan  Nikkei drove in the winning run  with a bases loaded single.  Jason Peers and Ron Mahoney  led Kern's, each going 4/4.  Mahoney's hits included three  doubles and Peers indued a  homer un.  The Pony Division was won  by West Vancouver Cardinals.  Entering Monday's play, they  needed two wins to take the  tournament. They did just that  by winning a thrilling 7-6  opener and then hung on to a  win a "hot" 11-9 game against  the New West Pirates. The Flying Tigers took third place, losing 11-1 to West Vancouver on  Sunday in the semi-final.  Trevor Anderson led the Tigers  batting going 2/3 - both  doubles. Don Armstrong pitched a solid game for West Van as  he gave up only one run on  three hits and struck out 11  Tigers.

Baha'is on the Sunshine  Coast join more than 300 other  communities across Canada in  celebrating the first commercial  release by CBS (Canada) True  North Records of the new  Canadian made video "Mona".  The date of release, chosen by  the record company for July 9,  coincides with one of the most  important Baha'i holy days,  which commemorates the  dramatic death in 1850 of one  of the two founders of the  Baha'i faith, known as the Bab.  The subject of the video,  Mona, was a 17-year old Iranian Baha'i high school girl who  was hanged in July 1983, a vic-  It's a little late in the season, but Ebony and her pair of four-day-  old lambs don't seem to mind. ���Dianne Evans photo  An eagle's eye view  Changing of Gibsons  by Richard F. Kennett  In a flowing hand symbolic  of MacLean's Method of  Writing she pens from high in  her spacious and comfortable  aerie. "Right now, I look down  on that new marina in all its  glory; Progress."  Now too, as an old timer she  opines the fact so much history  is being lost with the passing of  the old timers; fact is, we are the  old timers.  I first met Lenora some 50  years ago in the old Gibsons  elementary which is still operational but without the traditional outhouses. Mr. Morton  was the janitor who endlessly  fed cord wood into the heaters it  seemed, besides giving us  lessons in tidiness.  From far and wide we came,  were ably schooled by Jessie  Ades for the youngest, the  marvellous Betty Turnbull for  the mid-grades and W. Lome  Ginther, the speed artist on the  track, for the juniors; he made  mathematics a breeze and  thought nothing of reading to  us serial stories from Redbook  or Cosmopolitan if we were  caught up on our work. He told  us the "W" stood for nothing,  just an initial his parents tacked  on.  Our passion for learning was  to come later as we were thrust  into higher learning in the one  room high school under the  eagle eye of Stan Trueman for  grades nine through 12. It was a  revelation to see four grades  taught to some 35 students. At  least you always knew what you  would be doing in the next  higher grade.  There were the nature hunts  through the local woods, the  dissecting of an octopus in  biology and burning its remains  in the old cord wood length  heater, not to mention Ike  Emerson's daughter Betty with  her one long grown finger-nail  occasionally scraping it down  the slate blackboard midst  grinding and gnashing of teeth.  But as children, Lenora and  the rest of us survived as product and progress of the early  pioneers and settlers.  In a pensive mood, Lenora  probably looks over the bay and  the bluff and wonders how long  the eagle has ventured over the  bay from its domain high atop  an old fir on Keats Island,  repeatedly bothered by crows  and seagulls trying to force it  down on the water or thinks on  when she first srambled over the  bluff to pick Franklin daisies or  ventured to B-B beach which  now is a village park site.  From the progressive side,  she knows she and her husband  were no dummies when they  purchased the remnants of Danny's Diner following a fire and  moved it to its present location,  transforming it to gracious living and scenic splendour from  its ridge vantage point.  Lenora married into a most  prominent Gibsons family but,  in keeping with her faith and  bidding, that shall be left to  some other moment.  Meantime, keep your eagle  eye peeled Lenora...there's  more to come which may bring  a tear to your eye, a smile on  your face or a song in your  heart, though not always pro-  eressive.  ��� MISC SERVICES ���  For Rent  r  By the hour, day, week or month.

Mona was arrested for providing education to Baha'i  children in her community who  were considered "unclean infidels" and no longer allowed to  attend school in Iran. Since its  early beginnings in Persia at the  time of the Bab, the Baha'i  religion was branded a  "heresy" by the Muslim clergy  of the day, because it came after  Muhammed, who is considered  to be the final prophet. They  also fear and resent the faith's  modern teachings of world-  mindedness, equality of men  and women, and especially the  absence of clergy in its administration.  The video, which features  Canadian singer-songwriter  Doug Cameron and such well  known stars as Seals and Croft,  Buffy Saint Marie, country  singer Dan Seals and  Hollywood character actor Alex  Rocco, brings to life the  unusual and moving story of  Mona, the youngest of 10  women  and   girls  who  were  hanged after nine months of  torture in an Iranian prison during which the Muslim clerical  authorities tried to force them  to recant their Baha'i religion  and become Muslims. All  courageously refused to do so,  and when they were hanged,  one by one, in a last effort by  the mullahs to break their wills,  Mona asked to be the last to  pray for the strength of her  companions.  As Baha'is around the world  observe "The Martyrdom of the  Bab", as the holy day is called,  they will be offering special  prayers for the thousands of  Baha'is still homeless or in  prison in Iran and for all 192  Baha'is who have been killed by  the Iranian Muslim clergy during this most recent outbreak of  severe persecution of Iran's  Baha'is, the country's largest  religious minority.  Summer volunteers  Volunteer help is required for  a wide variety of activities happening on the Sunshine Coast  throughout the summer.  Summer programs for  youngsters can use volunteer  assistants in crafts, outings,  games and other fun activities.  The warm weather provides a  special opportunity for Big  Brothers to spend time together  with their younger friends in  unique ways. Why not try it!  Save the Children Fund can  always use people to help make  practical, attractive household  items  for world relief.  How  about  knitting  while  on  the  beach?  Residents in intermediate and  extended care in Gibsons and  Sechelt enjoy the chance to get  out when the weather is sunny  and bright. Volunteers help  make this possible!  If you can offer a few hours  of your time to help out, contact the Volunteer Action Centre at 885-5881. You'll find  every minute of it worthwhile!

Send your entries to reach the  Coast News, Box 460, Gibsons, this week. Last week's winner was  G. Knowles, Bals Lane, Gibsons, who correctly located the ship's  bell, "Magnolia" at Jack Marshall's residence on Glen Road, Gibsons.  Gibsons council  A Sewerage Assistance Bill  which could provide 75 per cent  of the project cost has been  given first reading by the B.C.  government and Alderman  John Burnside feels council  should delve more deeply into  this.  "We should keep the issue  alive on the chance the bill goes  through," he said in council July 2. As of now, they have  received funding of 25 per cent.  Also in council, Gibsons  firefighters asked for the use of  Brothers Park in summer of  1986 to host a firefighters' conference. It would be family  oriented and could draw 300 to  400 people to the community.  Approval was given.  Approval was not given,  however, to write a letter of  support to the Nanoose Conversion Campaign, a group of  citizens concerned about the  CFMETR base at Nanoose Bay  on Vancouver Island. They feel  there is a strong possibility that  some of the submarines entering  the base are nuclear armed and  wish to press for a public inquiry into the use of this base  with a view to ending the  weapons testing.  Alderman John Burnside  motioned that Gibsons council  support this group but his motion did not get a seconder.  School Board ponders  Chairman of the school  board, Janice Edmonds, announced Friday that Leonard  Marchand failed to appear at a  hearing held Thursday, July 4 at  the school board office, to appeal his suspension by the  board, although he was  represented by his lawyer. An  appeal has not been made.  Edmonds said that new information which had come before  the board had caused a reversal  of its previous decision. Earlier  in the year Marchand had been  suspended, but was re-instated  and then resigned; he has been  on sick leave since that time.  Asked what steps the board  will be taking to ensure that all  those involved in the matter are  fully accountable, Edmonds  said, "We are in the process of  examining the whole picture; we  are looking into everything.  "The opinion that arises  from all the research that has  been done for the Provincial  Emergency Program (PEP)  here on the Sunshine Coast is  that the largest outstanding problem is that of informing the  public."  Art McPhee, district coordinator for the program, was  speaking in a conversation with  the Coast News about what  PEP does and what the future  holds for the program.  Several other groups such as  St. Mary's Hospital, RCMP  and the volunteer fire departments have their own emergency programs McPhee explained.  The Coast Guard, which now  has two branches here on the  Sunshine Coast, conducts the  marine rescue operations  although PEP, with the  assistance of the Gibsons  Wildlife Club conducts all land  search and rescues.  "We also handle oil and  hazardous material spills," explained McPhee. "These are  usually vehicle accidents,  although occasionally a  thoughtless boater will pump  out the bilges and put a lot of oil  into the water.  "We would also handle propane accidents, although . we  hope there won't be one, of  course." he continued. "The  Canfor Mill handles a lot of  chlorine and sulphuric acid, but  it is delivered by barge so there  is no danger of vehicle  mishap."  The Emergency Response  Plan calls for designated elected  officials to make decisions during crises. "They are the  delegated representatives with  authority to act," McPhee said,  "and they are duty bound to  come to the emergency operations centre should an emergency arise."  The Emergency Operations  Centre is at the Sunshine Coast  Regional District (SCRD) office  in Sechelt, with a second choice  at the Works Shop in Chatelech  secondary and a third in the  Municipal Hall in Gibsons.  At the moment the delegated  representatives are Area A  Director Ian Vaughan, Alderman Graham Craig of Sechelt;  GIBSONS & DISTRICT CHAMBER OF COMMERCE  to chair  TOWN MEETING  TUESDAY, JULY 9TH  The Legion Hall, Gibsons  On the Sunshine Coast, corporations like B.C. Tel are closing down  services and attempting to transfer those jobs and paycheques to Vancouver. With 35% unemployment, our community desperately needs  the wages and taxes from those jobs.  The B.C. Tel Centre is just the tip of the iceberg. Our local economy  cannot withstand the loss of income caused by boardroom executives  who neither know nor care about communities.  One thing is clear. We must take control of our economic destiny  and make our local economy more secure.  What steps can we take to better control our economic destiny? We  can get involved.  TUESDAY, JULY 9th at the LEGION HALL IN GIBSONS, the Gibsons  & District Chamber of Commerce has agreed to chair a Town Meeting.  Ordinary citizens representing church groups, labour, businessmen  and the community will try to deal with this corporate strategy.  YOU ARE INVITED TO BE INVOLVED. Everyone is welcome. Tuesday, July 9th at 7:30 p.m. a Town Meeting, the Legion Hall in Gibsons.  Sponsored by:  T. W. U., Sunshine Coast joint Council of Labour Unions,  Solidarity Coalition and the Unemployment Action Centre  and Mayor Laurente Labonte  of Gibsons, who took over the  position when Alderman Ron  Neilson resigned recently.  "The SCRD building is built  to very modern standards and is  very likely to survive something  like an earthquake," explained  McPhee. "There is the  necessary equipment to control  the situation on site as well,  such as a radio transmitter and  receiver."  Jim O'Toole of Airspan is  also involved in PEP planning;  he is aware of the possible requirements that may be made  on his helicopter in an emergency, such as was the case during  the Roberts Creek flood.  "Jim knows the area very  well, and has a radio with which  to keep in touch," said  McPhee.  A recently acquired computer  program has made PEP planning much more efficient, said  McPhee.  "The program is in place to  help us avoid forgetting  things," he explained. "What it  does is replace a long shelf of  books. The computer simplifies; it tell us here are the  resources, the phone numbers,  what is available.  "It won't make decisions, but  will provide us with the best information to make decisions."  The major problem is still  with communications.  "We need more equipment,"  said McPhee, "and we need a  frequency allocation. We are  working on that right now. We  need a repeater so that our eight  handheld radios will be more effective, and we will be able to  talk from one end of the Coast  to the other.  "Pep is not well funded,"  McPhee continued, "although  we have had lots of training in  many aspects of the program.  We need funds for equipment."  McPhee sees the recent appointment of a public information officer, Anne Langdon, as  a step in the right direction.  "The media is sometimes a  part of the problem," McPhee  said. "Pemberton was a good  example, when there were so  many reports on site watching  the floods and using the phones  out of the town that communications were totally tied  up."  The public information officer will control the media by  being the outlet for information, such as casualties, progress  Police  news  GIBSONS RCMP  On June 28, police received a  call from B.C. Ferries reporting  that an adult male in a state of  intoxication was causing a  disturbance at the ferry terminal. The man was arrested  for being drunk in a public  place and held in ceils till sober.  No charges were laid.  Police attendance to a loud  and unruly beach party from  the Secret Beach area on the  evening of June 28 resulted in  seven separate cases of liquor  seizures.  Also, during the same evening, police received a report  from a Roberts Creek resident  that her goat had been attacked  and mangled by three dogs. The  goat was given a shot by the vet  and died shortly after police attended.  On July 2, in response to a  report that a youth had been  seen driving an unlicensed all-  terrain vehicle, police located a  15-year old youth operating a  vehicle on a public road in the  area of Lockyer Road. Charges  under the Motor Vehicle Act  were issued.  The theft of four wheels from  a parked vehicle was reported to  police on July 4. The vehicle  was parked at the Langdale  ferry terminal. Rocks were placed under the vehicle by the  thieves. The tires were valued at  $200. Police are still investigating.  On July 5, a Bosse equalizer  valued at $150 was reported  stolen from a vehicle parked by  the Cedar's Pub.  Police have located a purse  belonging to a Catherine Mary  Williams born in 1952. The  purse can be claimed by quoting  file 85/1876.  f�� IT ��*-M��-��-11!-��������������� i^*-*-*--  <   Quote of the Week  Man must consult on all  matters...consultation giveth  him insight into things and  enableth him to delve into  questions which are  unknown.    -Baha'u'llah.

The Emergency Response  Plan, compiled by Lamorte,  Williams and Associates, is the  first of its type, said McPHee  and it provides much of the information that appears on the  computer disc.  "It was very well done risk  analysis," said McPhee, "it  contains excellent  information."  In the near future a public  education program will be  undertaken by PEP which will  help advise people on what to  do in an emergency situation.  "The most important thing  to have in the house is a battery  powered radio," said McPhee.
