 '-��|'-~V  -*   -*-  ~~i. "t    rt  v sv IXJf  _*<..<*.  It and the SCRD  Democracy at the local level  ' seems alive and well this year as  the 1985 elections for local  government approach. Election  date is November 16 and as the  nominating deadline was reached last week thirteen local  citizens declared their intention  -to seek office in Gibsons,  Sechelt, and the Sunshine Coast  Regional District.  Two local politicians will be  returned by acclamation:  Mayor Joyce Kolibas has been  returned for another term in  Sechelt without opposition and  the representative of regional  Area E, Jim Gurney, has  likewise been affirmed by acclamation.  > Three candidates will contest  , the mayoralty of Gibsons, a  : position to be vacated this year  by   retiring   Mayor   Larry  Labonte. They are Alderman  John Burnside, former deputy-  mayor Diane Strom, and Benoit  LePage.  Burnside is coming to the end  of his first two years on Gibsons  Council; Strom served on council from 1980-83, stepping down  in 1983 to contest the mayoralty; LePage was aldermanic candidate in 1980.  Two Gibsons aldermanic  seats also fell vacant this year  and candidates are Jerry Dixon,  Alderman Bob Maxwell, and  John Reynolds.  Alderman Maxwell won a by-  election in August of this year.  Dixon served on council a few  years back and Reynolds was a  candidate last year and in the recent by-election.    .  Two Sechelt aldermanic seats  are to be filled. Contesting them  are Jim Hopkins, Anne  Langdon, and Alderman Anne  Pressley. Alderman Pressley is  seeking a second term as a  Sechelt Alderman; Hopkins was  a candidate in 1984; and Anne  Elected unopposed  Langdon is seeking public office  for the first time.  There are two elections in the  regional district: Gordon  Wilson challenges incumbent  Director Ian Vaughan in  Regional Area A, the Pender  Harbour district; and Alternate  Director Jack Marsden contests  the seat left vacant by Director  Jon McRae with Len Van Egmond in Area C, Davis Bay and  environs.  Advance polling is possible  for those who will be away on  November 16. In Gibsons, the  advance poll will be held on the  council chambers on Friday,  November 8, between 8 a.m.  and 5 p.m. Regular polling will  take place in the Marine Room  beneath the library from 8 a.m.  to 8 p.m. on November 16:" y  In Sechelt, the advance poll  will  be held on  Wednesday,  November 13, in the village of--  fice from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.; - - y  Regional advance polls-will  be announced in next week's:  paper. ���y :'i:  Regional Board Chairman Jim Gurney and Sechelt Mayor Joyce  Kolibas have been elected by acclamation.. ���Dianne Evans photo  Candidates meeting  There will be an all candidates meeting for those running in  the Gibsons election. The meeting will be held at the Gibsons  Legion Hall, it will be on Wednesday, November 6, starting  at 7:30 p.m.  To serve Coast  Freighter calls  Gibsons home  Originally built in England as a munitions carrier during World  War II, the G.B. Church is now home berthed in Gibsons harbour  and will soon be working again as a B.C.  skipper Mike Walters, (see story)  coastal freighter under  ���Brad Benson photo  The G.B.Church, which has  been temporarily moored at the  Gibsons government wharf,  represents one of the community's newest business ventures,  thanks to the entrepreneurial  foresight of the vessel's new  owners, Mike Walters and Lan-  ny Aitken.  Though the ship will soon be  moving from the wharf, probably to a mooring buoy in the  harbour, Gibsons is now the  vessel's home port, said  Walters, a resident of the Sunshine Coast.  . Walters had been negotiating  been tied, up in foreclosure proceedings sihbe 1981. He is planning to use the G.B. Vhurch as  a coastal freighter, primarily  hauling cedar shake blocks  from as far north as Rivers Inlet  and Bella Coola to the shake  mills concentrated near Haney  on the Fraser River.  All engines are now running  and the gear is ready. The first:  trip will take place in two weeks,  when a load of shake blocks will  be picked up at Fredrick Arm  and taken to Haney. Walters  expects the ship to be working  seriously by the first of the yeai?  and by next summer. If all goes  well, they will be running two  crews on a two week on, two?  week off rotation.  He   expects   to   compete;  favourably  with the  conven-;  tional method of transporting  shake blocks by barge because  - the G.B.  Church can sail in;  cannot. "Your, normal south  easterly storm is not going to  bother us," Walters said.  Built as a munitions carrier at  England's Gole Shipyards in  1943, the ship is flat bottomed,  drawing only eight or nine feet  of water when fully loaded. By  Please turn to page 18  ��� i  ���  ;y  Three campa  JOHN BURNSIDE  When Mayor Laurent  Labonte decided to step down  at the end of his current term, I  decided to let my name stand  for the position because I felt it  crucial to continue to keep the  Town of Gibsons moving in the  sound and constructive direction of the past two years.  : Let's take just a moment to  review some of the accomplishments of those past  two years.  - The jewel of municipal  achievement undoubtedly has  been the much praised  Downtown Revitalization.  Previous councils had kept this  program hanging fire for three  years because of an inability to  agree on methods of financing.  ; Today, the benefits of the  vyork are apparent to all. The  program evaluator for the provincial government said he had  never seen anything so fantastic  for the modest amount spent  and indeed the work done has  drawn praise from all parts of  the coast.  ', Gibsons residents, and  Others, will remember the years  that went by when we couldn't  eyen get the public washrooms  in Pioneer Park open.  ; Secondly, the past two coun  cils of which I have been a  member have begun to come to  grips with the long-neglected  paving of Gibsons roads.  Previous councils have exercised  false economy on public works.  The backlog of work needing  done will not be soon cleared  away, but with steady application and making careful use of  the monies available we can  continue the obvious progress  of the past two years, always  while keeping taxes near the  current acceptable levels.  Another area in immediate  need of attention is the area of  water supply. In my campaign  literature two years ago I  pointed to Gibsons' future  development around the top of  the town. Co-operation with the  regional board to minimize  costs was a must, I said then.  This May an engineering  report from Dayton & Knight,  which I requested, indicated a  saving to taxpayers in the town  and regional district of almost  $1 million over the next ten  years if co-operation takes place  now. Discussions and negotiations to that end have already  begun. The proposed cooperation does not jeopardise  the town's equity in its water  system.  1986 will also see the expansion of the sewer system. Borrowing approval is already in  place and the work requires only the correct timing to begin.  We must not minimize the  difficulties. Failure of previous  councils to provide a working  capital reserve means that,  again, we must spend every  dollar where it will do the most  good. My experience of the past  several years, meeting a payroll  in a labour intensive industry  during a recession, has I believe  made me the most qualified  candidate for Gibsons' Mayor.  be Mayor of Gibsons  BEN LEPAGE  Ben Lepage is running for the  Mayoral seat in Gibsons  because he is dissatisfied with  the way things are run in the  town. Lepage told the Coast  News that he feels the town is  being run "like a dictatorship"  and that has given him the incentive to campaign for office.  "Only the elite get things in  this town," Lepage said. "The  Mayor and Council only listen  to big business, not the little  guy. An example of that would  be what happened to George's  hotel, back in '79. They  wouldn't let him build it  because it would obstruct the  view". (The project to which  Lepage refers is a hotel proposed by George Giannakos in the  lower town.)  "It's a proven fact that for  every one business established,  two go under," Lepage continued. "The reason they go  under is because Council and  big business don't care. The  multi-nationals run this country."  Lepage feels that Council acts  without proper consultation  with business and cited the recent sign bylaw as an example  of this. "They wanted to push  that bylaw through three  readings all at once. To me,  that's dictatorship. They've lost  contact with business," he said.  Lepage said that, if he were  elected, he would design youth  projects with direct control by  youth. "No adult control," he  said. There would be a youth  centre, a youth magazine and  none of it would use government funding, giving youth the  opportunity to operate as a  business and not take handouts, Lepage explained.  Business is a major concern  for Lepage.  "I'd like to see old business  get the same breaks as new  business," he said. "The tax exemptions for new business are  good but they should apply to  old businesses too. That will encourage job creation."  Lepage objects strongly to the  tactics the federal and provincial governments have been using to create jobs.  "Everyone wants the government to introduce job creation,  but they (the governments)  don't care about jobs," Lepage  continued. "I think we should  use the government's own MacDonald Commission report  where it says that the poverty  line is $14,000 a year. That  shows that there are poor people in Canada. Council should  lobby to increase welfare rates,  Unemployment Insurance  payments and pensions. That  will force the government's  hand. When they see they have  to pay all that money out, then  they'll go for job creation.  "It all goes back to Ottawa,'  he concluded.  DIANE STROM  Diane Strom is running for  the office of Mayor in the Town  of Gibsons. Speaking with the  Coast News, Strom said that she  felt her experience as alderman  and deputy mayor would stand  her in good stead.  "I have the confidence that I  can do a job that will represent  all the residents of the town,"  she said. "And I have had  organizational experience with  the Sea Cavalcade committee,  lately with the financial end of  it."  Strom, who served on Council from 1980 to 1983 has several  major objectives.  "Council has to be very  careful. Taxes dictate what you  can or cannot do. I would like  to keep those taxes down,"  Strom said. "One of my most  pressing concerns is the sewer  system. The plant is running at  capacity now. The problems  have been known about for  some years. It's time to deal  with it."  Strom sees the major jobs  -roads, sewers and water - as  important issues. During her  previous term such projects  were included in a five-year  plan, she said, but now costs are  no longer borne by the government to the same degree.  "It used to be 75 per cent  from the government, but now  that's decreased to 25 per cent  of finished costs. There would  probably have to be an increase  in taxes to cover those costs, but  we would have to look to the-  user   and   have   a   user-pay J  system. We would have to look"  very closely at what has to be"  borrowed," Strom continued.   *  Strom said that Council had  talked with the regional board  when she was in office previously with a view to renting space in  the Gibsons reservoir to the  district, but the regional district  had other priorities and the plan  bogged down, Strom explained.  Water is still of major concern,;  and she supports co-operation;  between the two governments. -  "We have to be productive  and utilize business to its best  potential," she said. "That's  not a one-man job, but with incentives it can be done. I don't  know what those incentives  would be, but we could put our  heads together to find out. We  have to try to sell our town and  encourage business to come  here."  Relations between the upper  and lower towns should be  stronger according to Strom.  "When I was on Council we  had almost gotten rid of this  (dissension between the upper  and lower town) but I think it  can be worked out to enhance  both parts of the town," she  said. "The Marina has done  wonders for the town, it's  brought life to the whole town,  and the sea-walk is an asset as  well, but we have to do things  for the upper town too."  Married, with three children,  Strom has lived in the Gibsons  area since 1951.  "Gibsons has a personality;  it's a town that grows on you,"  Strom mused. "You're always  drawn back. It's a neat place,  and the people are great." Coast News, November 4,1985  "4    _������  -   :*  .... **"  Election time  All candidates meetings are an important part of the  election process. It is in this forum that the candidates  come face to face with the electorate, who may then be  better able to make the decision of which person is best for  the job.  All too often these meetings are badly attended, not only by the voters, but sometimes by the candidates  themselves.  As voters we should demand that those who seek to  govern meet us, answer our questions, show us how they  react if 'put on the spot'.  And as voters we should endeavour to turn out to ask  the questions, we should mull over all that we know of  each candidate's position, and we should do our best to  find out in what direction we might expect to travel after  election day.  Without full participation the democratic process fails  to work successfully. Our representatives are our responsibility, if we are dissatisfied with our present elected officials we should do our best to elect someone better suited  for the job.  If we are happy, then let the incumbent know by turning  out and renewing his or her mandate.  Whatever choice is yours, it's hard to make an intelligent decision without information, and it's impossible  to make your voice heard if you fail to speak.

Two local companies were handed down fines totalling $145,000 in court at Sechelt for allowing a  deleterious substance to enter water frequented by fish.  The Ministry of Health has approved major renovations to the dietary department of St. Mary's Hospital,  Sechelt.  10 YEARS AGO  MLA Don Lockstead said some of the key issues for  this area in the December 11 election announced by  Premier Barrett last week will be problems-dealing with-  the environment, transportation and communication  and the growth of the Sunshine Coast area. ..  The Sunshine Coast Queen was recalled to her berth  shortly after the 1:30 p.m. sailing from Langdale last  Tuesday after an anonymous phone call stated that a  bomb was aboard. Passengers were evacuated and a  thorough search of the ship was made, but no bomb  was found.  15 YEARS AGO  Regional Board directors decided to write to the  highway department seeking clarification of road  names on the Sunshine Coast. Dangerous confusion  has arisen at times, particularly in the case of firemen  being misdirected as a result of the duplication of road  names.  20 YEARS AGO  The Sunshine Coast Arts Council was formed at a  Sunday afternoon meeting at the school board office in  Gibsons. In a statement of purpose Mr. Klyne Headley  explained that the council has been formed for the purpose of co-ordinating, improving, and deleloping the  cultural activities of the Sunshine Coast-  25 YEARS AGO  B.C.

STORY OF A TREE - Part V - By the end of April 1886 all the  giant trees had been logged off Vancouver's CPR townsite (the area  bounded by False Creek, Burrard Street, Burrard Inlet and  Gastown), and all through May and early June, the air was heavy  with smoke as the smaller trees and the slash were burned to make  way for roads and buildings. Then on Sunday, June 13, one of the  fires got out of control and by mid-afternoon, the city of Vancouver had been burned to the ground. The young photographer  Harry Devine saved most of his photographic equipment with the  help of his father, and at 7 o'clock the following morning, he was  out taking pictures of the devastatipn and the rebuilding process  that began almost immediately. Occupied with recording this during the next months, he took no more pictures of the Big Tree at  Georgia and Granville until late fall when he caught these two  young bucks standing within the burned-out butt cut. The butt, of  course, had not been damaged by the fire of June 13 because that  fire had not spread this far west; the butt and the stump had been  hollowed out by a fire deliberately set in April. In the meantime the  remaining sections of the tree had been skidded down to the inlet,  the ground had been totally cleared of debris and building had  commenced on the adjoining lots. The log lay due north and south,  thus placing it at an angle across Georgia Street about the middle of  the block between Granville and Seymour, and Ihe two young men  are looking toward False Creek and Kitsilano. Just to the left of  their line of vision and out of the camera's range, stand the foundations to the Hotel Vancouver on the southwest corner of Georgia  and Granville. The building in the left background is located on  Granville halfway between Georgia and Dunsmuir, and the gable  points to Granville.  ���photo courtesy Belly C. Keller  Musings  John Burnside  There is a remarkable serenity  to the view from the'24th floor  of a West End high rise.  Last week, Fran and I ducked  awax Trom^qur:; responsibilities  for ,a few-days to refresh  ourselves for the trials ahead.  An old friend has an apartment  on the 24th floor of such a high  rise and so it came to be that on  the first day of our stay I was  alone in the apartment with  Fran shopping and our host at  work.  Our host is a bibliophile of  some note and I wandered in a  happy daze among more books  than I will probably have time  to read if I live a. full hundred  years.  In the stillness of a soft, gray  fall day with the green of  Stanley Park nearby being the  only colour in the landscape and  the freighters waiting patiently  in the mist of English Bay, just  to be around so many books  was soothing.  In the evening the three of us  went out to see George Bernard  A city visit  Shaw's Arms and the Man one  night, a wonderful play and well  enough done .though the male  actors seemed at best only adequate to the demands qf.the  More satisfying was our second theatre outing: we took in  Edward Albee's Who's Afraid  of Virginia Wolfe at the Queen  Elizabeth Playhouse. Our  friend, who is completely at  home in English, French and  German, and who yearly travels  the continent on cultural safaris  pronounced himself delighted  with the play, with which he was  unfamiliar, and most impressed  with the internationally high  calibre of the performances  given.  It is a most moving and  challenging theatrical evening  and for those who are so inclined it should not be missed.  The third evening of our stay  we took in The Gods Must Be  Crazy which is in its second year  at the Fine Arts Cinema on  Georgia. This Afrikaaner film is  a gentle and joyous jewel of a  film. From opening to close it is  an absolute delight. Put it on  your list of films most certainly  not to be missed.   ,_,..,,..  I walked along the seawalk  from English Bay to well past  the Teahouse and then angled  my way back through Stanley  Park, through a gray-green  cathedral hush in which the soft  rain seemed like a benison.  My only regret was that I had  no nuts for the squirrels, no  crumbs for the birds.  What  an  absolute treasure  and a joy Stanley Park is! What  foresight which protected it for  the city! A couple of hours  along the seawalk and through  the park and I saw no one who  did not seem to be in a state of  late fal|Jbliss.  I have travelled farther from  home and been less refreshed;  three days in the city not too  often seems to be just about  right. One returns to the coast  thankful that the city is there  but glad to live here on the Sunshine Coast. Truly the best of  both worlds. f  I Never Saw a Moor  / never saw a moor,  I never saw the sea;  Yet know I how the heather looks,  And what a wave must be.  I never spoke with God,  Nor visited in Heaven;        "*_���  Yet certain am I of the spot  As if the chart were given.  **��>^s>^  Dianne Evans  y?  Emily Dickinson  When help is needed  When someone you love is  diagnosed as having cancer, the  world changes forever.  I know that when I heard my  mother quietly weeping, one  night a long time ago, and when  I asked her what was wrong and  she made me feel the lump she'd  found, my heart went cold with  fear.  It's the fear that makes it difficult. Cancer has become an  almost universal symbol for  evil; we see it eating away  relentlessly while we are  powerless to stop it or even to  know how it begins.  Or so it seems. That  thousands of people so diagnosed live, after treatment, long  productive lives free of the  disease, that research uncovers  more of cancer's mysteries  every month, are considerations  not part of the devestating grip  that fear has on our rationality.  My mother went to the doctor the next day, and yes, she  did have cancer. She endured a  radical mastectomy, and it took  months for her to recover. I was  21 years old, working, chafing  at being back home after three  years on my own.  None of it was easy. I didn't  know how to approach my  mother; 1 didn't know whether  to be sympathetic or to be  cheerful, I didn't know how to  come to grips with the guilt I  felt at being angry. Every day I  went to the hospital, and then to  .the convalescent home, and I  spent every night thinking of the  hideous scars the operation had  left behind.  And then, when my mother  came home, how did I deal with  her ill humour, her pain, how  did I help my mother deal with  it?  Fortunately, after the first  month at home things improved. To this day I am grateful  that we had the opportunity to  become friends, to overcome  the animosities of my teenaged  years.  We learned to laugh together,  and it truly seemed that my  mother was recovering. She was  active and cheerful, more  carefree than I had known her  since my father died nine years  before.  So it was all the more shocking when my aunt invited me to  her house a few months later to  tell me that it would all be over  in three months. They hadn't  caught "it" in time and "it"  was galloping in its inexorable  way throughout my mother's  body.  I didn't know what to do  then, either. My aunt had her  own battles to fight in dealing  with my.mother's fate. I seemed  to be alone, more alone than  ever before and indeed, than  ever since.  It was a strange week, that  first one. As it happened, I had  three weeks off from my job, so  my mother and I spent the time  together for the most part.  Neither one of us talked about it  until the second week when time  started to fly.  Three months! My mother's  clock was speeding up; she took  to her bed in the second week,  and she and I kept a vigil,  through night after day, after  night again. I tried to persuade  her to eat a little, I prepared  anything she wanted, I lay in my  bed at night and listened to her  breathe, or weep.  And then, the third week  began, and with it the end. 1  rode with my mother in the ambulance to the hospital at the  beginning of the week; the doctor had given her morphine and  we both knew that it wouldn't  be three months. In fact, it  wasn't even three weeks.  I watched her fade away, and  I couldn't stop it and I didn't  know what to do. At the end of  it, I wished that she would finally die, so that I didn't have to  see it any more. And soon, I got  my wish.  By then I'd done my grieving,  my anger was gone, 1 felt numb.  But now, as I write I weep too,  because it was such a lonely  time, and because there wasn't  really anyone who could  reassure me or tell me that I was  doing fine.  There wasn't anyone to tell  my mother that everything  would be alright, that I would  survive and live on, that  everything she'd taught me  would stand me in good stead,  when she was gone. ".  It's a hard time indeed, but  with support and help it can be  easier; there can be some com-;  fort. :  Here on the Sunshine Coast  there is a fledgling support  group for those who suffer  from cancer and for their-  friends and families. The group^  is informal, and it is invaluable/  Here you can come and talk^  about your fear, bring all the'  guilt and resentment and angec  out into the light of day. You.  (can share feelings with others;  who understand because they've;  been there too.  To know you're not alone,;  that life doesn't end with a grim;  diagnosis, that there is hope and';;  the chance to fight back, these^  can be sources of great comfort:-  So if you or someone you.  love has cancer, or if you want  to share your experiences with  the group, come to the Sunshine;  Coast Regional District office at;  1:30 p.m. today. The group is*  meeting, informally, in the;  board room. If you want more;;  information call Sybil MacGin:���-  nis at 885-2842.  It's so much easier if you  don't have to do it alone. \l  |lw��|iwi.J|P^  Coast News, November 4,1985  Gibsons Centennial '86 Society  Editor's note: A copy of the  following letter has been received for publication.  Hon. Wm. Ritchie  Minister of Municipal Affairs  Victoria, BC V8V 1X4  Dear Sir:  I am writing to request that  you call for a moratorium on  the sale or lease of waterfront  property for the expressed or intended purpose of aquaculture  or its related activities until such  time  as  the  Sunshine  Coast  Regional District and all concerned parties have drawn up  plans to decide the issue of  where such activities should  take place.  At present there is some question and a great deal of controversy regarding this issue on  the Sunshine Coast. Aquaculture has taken off like a  runaway horse and it is time someone took hold of the reins.  Local realtors have jumped  on   the   bandwagon  and  are  listing many pieces of waterfront property some as small as  half an acre, as "potential fish  farm" or "zoned for  aquaculture".  Fish farms are appearing  overnight in areas traditionally  considered to be residential ot;  recreational. Unless some policy  in this regard is set down, the  entire Sunshine Coast, if not ail  other coastal areas as well,  could be inundated with fish  farms,   packing   plants   and  loading, unloading and distribution facilities.  Aquaculture may well turn  out to be a godsend to this area,  but it could just as well be  another instance of "gold  fever". Until such time as a very  clear-cut policy has been  established, I feel a moratorium  as suggested above is the only  solution. A response to this request would be appreciated.  Catherine A. Gros  Earls Cove Ratepayers  meeting  Tues., Nov. 26, 7:30 p.m  Marine Room, Gibsons  Cordial invitation to al! interested  Vaughan challenged on education views  I* Editor:  ; The Sunshine Coast Teachers  :. wish to publicly thank the Gibsons Town Council, Sechelt  ; .Village Council, and the Sun-  yshine Coast Regional District  ;Tor their motions in support of  ^"Support Public Education  L]Week".  ^ In so stating, I would like to  v-publicly challenge SCRD Director  Ian  Vaughan's dissenting  statement that "private education is doing a better job." If  Mr. Vaughan had looked beyond his prejudices he would  have discovered that it is not  possible to directly compare the  systems. Private education  serves students with a specific  financial or religious dedication,  usually from a specific segment  of society. Public schools must  serve a population comprising a  huge spectrum of needs and  values. Class sizes in private  schools are typically half those  of public schools.  Mr. Vaughan may also have  discovered that despite these  handicaps, the top three  achievers in British Columbia  on the provincial scholarship  examinations were students in  the public education system!  Whether or not such comparisons are valid, our appeal  was to Support Public Education, an essential element of our  free democratic society, and I  reiterate our gratitude to those  who proclaimed their support.

Referring to only last year's  statistics,   134 swimmers were  involved, two paying jobs  creating $4626.72 in wages, and  $5463.10 paid out in pool rental  time, totalling $10,089.82.  Realizing the vital impact an  elected council has in governing  our daily lives, for example in  over-seeing our municipal  facilities, it is now time for us all  to no longer be silent and ask  the needed questions!  Can a five year established  swim club have its regular hours  just taken away?  Must competitive swimmers  be forced to travel to Vancouver  to join a club, bearing tremendous additional costs?  Can a town afford not to  renew a rental contract?  As a candidate for office,  what are your views and future  plans in creating healthy activities for our youth to enjoy?  As voters lining up at the polls  soon, what are your views?  Thank you.

'886-7112  _*  H  Hallowe'en brings safety to mind  Editor:  Another   Hallowe'en   night  has come and gone and so far  any  our  we haven't heard of  catastrophes involving  children.  Accidents could have happened however, because the  local merchants in our town do  not seem to be aware of the  dangers of selling fireworks to  children.  Selling to those under the age  of 16 is a violation and I know  from personal experience that  this does happen as "a Gibsons  merchant" sold one to my 10  year old. We are fortunate that  my son had the foresight to tell  us about it and not to try and set  it off himself.  During our night out on  Hallowe'en we saw many  adolescents throwing fireworks  at the younger children who  were very frightened.  The best way to ensure our  children's safety is for parents  to accompany their children on  Hallowe'en, but many of the  older children don't appreciate  their parents tagging along.  Therefore the responsibility of  restriction must lie with the  merchants who sell them.  It's unfortunate that there is  so much fear on what is supposed to be an evening of fun.

However, you neglected to  indicate that Mrs. Connor was  selected by and representing the  Sechelt and District Chamber of  Commerce. The Good Citizen  banquet is our premier event of  the year and we think credit  should be given where it is due  as many people worked hard to  bring the program to fruition.  The Sechelt and District  Chamber of Commerce is 38  years old and therefore one of  the oldest continuously run  organizations on the coast.  Mrs. Connor's banquet  marked the thirteenth annual  Good Citizen award that started  with the late Norm Burley in  1970. It jumped a few years to  1974 with the joint award to  Jack Mayne and the late  Margaret Lamb and has been  an annual event ever since.  It's good to get these things  right.  Richard T.

V- "I want to see that the dollars  f^hat are available for functions  ltl>f the municipality are spent in  'ftthe best possible interests of the  2|Fown of Gibsons," he told the  l^poast News last week.  '$*'< Dixon served two terms as  Ealderman in the years when the  &Mte of the present sewage treat-  j^ment plant was being  Negotiated, and was instrumental in obtaining the 80 acres of  ;$jfnd where the plant now sits.  !^5ewage is a major concern for  ^ixon.  >;* "We've got to solve the  'jpewage problem," he said.  )%��rhe system is overtaxed as it  ?>i�� There are streets in the  l^nunicipality where people find  ini, hard to live because of the  ^srnell. Something must be  likme."  *K Another of Dixon's concerns  $�� the plight of small business,  $ahd he would like to see the  ���jtSwn take a more active role in  ���^^encouraging business development.  IfX;"The town should do more  to promote small enterprises,  give tax breaks and other incentives, like waiving sewer connection fees, for example," he explained. "As it is, there's so little happening that we are losing  all our young people. We have  to encourage business to create  jobs."  Revitalization has been good  for the town, says Dixon, and  he hopes that a similar program  may be forthcoming for the upper town, although such a project would be more difficult to  organize because of the large  amount of privately owned  shopping space.  Dixon's primary concern is  where the tax dollars are being  spent, and he looks forward to  having a good long look at the  budget figures.  "I'd like to see the money  spent where it's needed most,"  he said. "Let's face it, there  seem to be a lot of employees  for a town this size, but of  course I'd have to peruse the  figures carefully."  The previous lack of cooperation between the town and  the regional district is a situation  deplored by Dixon, and he  welcomes recent meetings between the two bodies to work  out a compromise on the water  supply situation.  "I'd like to see that kind of  co-operation continue. It's been  lacking for years and it has to  change," he said. "We have to  work together."  Owner of J's Unisex in the  Sunnycrest Mall, Dixon has lived in the area for 25 years and  feels that his long term commitment to the town and his  familiarity with the community  will be a strength in the office of  alderman.  ROBERT MAXWELL  Incumbent alderman, Robert  Maxwell, is seeking re-election  to Gibsons Council in the upcoming election. In conversation with the Coast News, Maxwell expressed his support of recent moves towards cooperation between the regional  district and the town, especially  in the refurbishing of the  Henry/Reed reservoir and  water mains into the town.  "I have had full input into  the water proposal and would  certainly pursue neighbourly cooperation, but in no way will I  support the relinquishment of  any property equity to the  regional district," he said.  "This interchange of water  supply is not only desirable but  it is also necessary, and I feel it  can be accomplished quite easily  within the scope of our combined financial resources," Maxwell continued, "remembering,  of course, that no debt is better  even than low debt."  Industrial development is an  important concern for Maxwell  who heartily endorses the concept of aii industrial development director for Sechelt and  Gibsons, considered by present  Council as a possible alternative to the present Economic  Development Commission.  Maxwell is concerned that  Gibsons residents and local investors will reap the benefits of  any such development. As well,  Maxwell fully supports the industrial tax holiday incentive  for new industries locating in  the town under the Partners In  Enterprise program. The present Gibsons Council has  declared a 100 per cent tax  break for such business over a  five year period.  "Revitalization has to be  looked at with an eye on the upper town as any aspect of the  town that goes into decadence is  our responsibility; we have to  see revitalization equally  shared," Maxwell said. "The  upper town can be assured that  if there's anything in the budget  that is covered by Phase II of  revitalization those funds will be  re-allocated to the upper town.  The provincial government  guidelines allow only for  revitalization funds to be used  in the designated revitalization  area."  Tourism receives Maxwell's  support too, as long as the  quality of life of those who live  here is preserved. He sees the  development of the area as a  retirement centre as a good  twelve-month industry, providing a solid financial tax base.  Maxwell would like to see a  review of all enforcement  bylaws take place during his  next term of office.  "I've been out talking to the  people," Maxwell concluded.  "This is the level of government  the people can communicate  with."  JOHN REYNOLDS  John Reynolds is running for  the position of alderman on  Gibsons Council in the upcoming election. He spoke to  the Coast News last week and  expressed his support of the  public works projects being  undertaken in the town.  "Public works must continue  to the same calibre as they have  been," he said. "An example is  South Fletcher Road, where the  work has been well done not only functionally but aesthetically  too. I welcome the sidewalks to  be constructed from Five Corners to North Road, and have  to commend the town for the  way the work has been undertaken.  The prospect of co-operation  between the regional district and  the town is also welcomed by  Reynolds.  "I'm very pleased to hear  that the regional district and  Gibsons are working together,  not just on the water system but  on house numbering too. The  town has hired a local company  (Tangent Enterprises) to work  with the regional district to find  a mutually acceptable way of  designating house numbers in  side the town so that it matches  the regional district system,"  Reynolds said.  Reynolds hails revitalization  as an important step for Gibsons but sees that the upper  town has needs as well. "I live  in 'middle' Gibsons," he said,  "so I have interests in both upper and lower Gibsons, and in  tying the two together. Year-  round transportation between  the two levels of the town is a  must."  Lower town draws to tourism  are important and in that  respect Reynolds likes the idea  of a theatre at the old Fire Hall  site, provided the design ties in  with the proposed town houses  across the street. Co-ordinated  planning plays an important  role in the development of Gibsons and Reynolds would like to  see that Gibsons reap more  benefits from economic and  employment planning.  "I feel that the town now has  an excellent Chamber of Commerce, we have a Community  Development Officer on call  one day a week (Irene Lugsdin)  and the town should be working  with both of them to encourage  the promotion of the town outside the area, to work with  businesses to encourage their  growth.  "This is the last opportunity  the voters have to elect someone  appropriate for 1986," Reynolds concluded. "There'll be  more people than ever before on  the coast; things will be bigger  and better but we have to be  prepared. Let's put that campground into Brothers Park in  time for '86; let's get things  ready."  Three Sechelt aldermanic candidates  ^Sechelt  JIM HOPKINS  .r..H     resident,    Jim  ^Hopkins, has decided to contest  ���<��|ie of Sechelt's two aldermanic  $eats in the up-coming elections.  'Me sees the coming years as  ^Bftes filled with major decisions  $or the village and feels that his  .^experience as a businessman  ^frould assist him in the office.  .^'"I've been in business most  *��f my life; I used to have 300  :3|mployees working for me, so  3��m familiar with manage-  ^nt," he told the Coast News  ^Jast week.  ���SKlOne of the most pressing con-  ;y!<?rns for Sechelt is the proposal  JEpr restructuring the municipali-  ���jvl Hopkins feels that more in-  $cirmation is needed.  %y"I will have to study restructuring very carefully. The electors must be given more detailed  ^formation, the people must be  jpfquainted with the facts before  $hey can make an intelligent  ^ecision," he said.  ���^-'Public works are also an important concern; clean-up is  *|ery much needed in the village,  l^cording to Hopkins.  ^"1   am   100   per   cent   for  evitalization in the downtown  !��3;ea. We have to fix the pro  blems of drainage and ditches  too," he added, saying that his  business interests in the past had  left him "not unacquainted  with public works."  Knowing what the people  want is of vital concern to  Hopkins. He sees the future of  the village with "some heavy  and controversial clouds blowing over it," and he intends to-  make it his business to "find  out what the people want and  then to try to fulfil their  desires."  Tourism will be a major part  of the town's future as Hopkins  sees it and he feels that  storekeepers would like Sechelt  to be more accessible to the  public from both the ocean side  as well as from the Inlet. As well  as tourism, Hopkins sees the  growing retired population as a  major factor in economic  growth.  "Many retirees want to  gravitate to areas close to stores,  and they need facilities; they  want peace and quiet,"  Hopkins explained. "However,  our community must also take  light industrial expansion into  consideration. We must expand  our industrial base, and thereby  expand the tax base."  The other major change  looming on the horizon for  Sechelt is the up-coming self  government for the Sechelt Indian Band. Hopkins looks forward to being able to work with  the Band in co-operation.  Hopkins, who has lived with  his wife in Sechelt for the past  eleven years, has a daughter in  her final year at Simon Fraser  University and another  daughter who is the editor of a  Prince Rupert newspaper.  ANNE LANGDON  Anne Langdon is seeking  election to Sechelt Council in  the up-coming elections.  Manager of the Sunshine Coast  Tourism Association and past  editor of a local newspaper,  Langdon feels that the village  could become one of the most  beautiful communities on the  west coast, for present and  future residents, and tourists  alike.  Langdon feels that change is  inevitable in order to deal with  the present effects of the depression on local economy, and sees  that everyone's unselfish cooperation is needed to allow  that change to happen in the  way most satisfactory to the  most people.  The need for expansion and  improvement is evident,  Langdon feels, and if they do  not take place the village will  shrink, services will be lost,  taxes left unpaid, and the  decline already taking place will  continue. Langdon feels that  this can be turned around.  Tourism is one of the ways to  do this.  "lam stubborn enough to  want,to stay on the coast and  TOWN OF GIBSONS  NOTICE OF POLL  Public Notice is given to the electors of the Municipality that a poll is necessary at the election now pending, and that the persons nominated as candidates at the election, for whom  votes will be received are:  Name  Office  Term      Address  Occupation  BURNSIDE, John Mayor  LEPAGE, Benoit Joseph Mayor  STROM, Diane M.

There are immediate needs in  the village, more sidewalks in  areas well-travelled by the base  population - the seniors, and  . planned and intensive revilaliza-  * tion of the main core, including  a wharf ^and jDoat -launching  -^facility.   3   *';-'r-       "l  'As    for    restructuring,  -Langdon feels that more facts  are needed before any intelligent  decisions can be made.  "There must be a way to  phase it in," she said, "there are  advantages. For example, the  people in Davis Bay use Sechelt  facilities but have no control  over what does or doesn't happen. Of concern is what happens to the tax base, however, if  the population expands  "I am also very excited about  working in another capacity  with our very progressive  Sechelt Indian Band," Langdon  stated. "This means a new  future for the Band who will  become our neighbouring  municipality. I feel the Band  will go ahead very rapidly;  they've been planning for years,  and if they get into large  developments it will certainly  affect us."  Co-operation and conciliation are key: "I sincerely feel  together we can improve our  economy and the village of  Sechelt," Langdon concluded,  "When I worked with the  newspaper I was able to take an  objective stand on many issues  affecting the village and the  regional board. Now, I think it  is the time for me to sit at the  table. I am not afraid to speak  out for better government."  Elphie's  Fall  Supper  The Elphinstone Fall Supper  is nearly upon us. The supper  will be held in the Elphinstone  cafeteria Tuesday, November  12 from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. Admission will be five dollars per  person.  This "fall supper" is sponsored by the Industrial Education, Art, Music and Home  Economics departments. Proceeds from the evening will be  used to fund activities in these  departments at Elphinstone.

We invite all members of the  community to join us for a fine  dinner and a fun evening.  Tickets are available at  Elphinstone School. (886-2204)  ANNE PRESSLEY  Incumbent alderman, Anne  Pressley, is again running for a  seat on the Sechelt Council. Her  long experience in municipal affairs and a thorough knowledge  of the village would stand her in  good stead, she told the Coast  News last week.  "As Chairman of the Finance  Committee for the past two  years I can report that the affairs of the village are in good  order," Pressley said. During  her term as alderman, major  projects have been undertaken  in the village and have been paid  for from reserve without the  raising of taxes.  The take-over and upgrading  of the arena, the installation of  proper drainage in the Inlet and  Teredo Streets area, the expansion of the library building, the  purchase of waterfront property  for future use, additional  sidewalks and some road construction are among the projects  completed during that time.  Pressley does add a word of  caution however; since there are  no reserves left, it will be up to  future councils to "balance the  need to do with the ability to  pay."  Downtown revitalization, in  its germaine stages at the present time, looks promising, said  Pressley, but she sees one of the  major keys to development as  being a sea entrance to the  village:"I'm all for that", she  said, adding that she hoped  there would be a true spirit of  co-operation between all interested parties.  Kinnikinick Park is another  project which was begun during  Pressley's term and she would  like to see Council continue to  develop the site to provide much  needed sports facilities for the  area's young people. She attributes the success to date of  the project to Alderman Ken  Short's hard work, and would  like to tie the park and the sea  entrance together in some way;  she has stated that this is a project to which she would be committed if elected.  Restructuring, one of  Sechelt's major concerns, finds  favour with Pressley. The long  term benefits gained by the  larger Sechelt trading area  becoming one political entit.v  would outweigh any small short  term gains or losses in the pre-  present tax structure, Pressley  believes.  The other important event in  Sechelt's near future is self  government for the Sechelt Indian Band and Pressley is watching the process with interest.  "I certainly wish them well in  their hopes and plans for the  future," Pressley said. "I think  it's tremendous and the potential benefits for the whole area  are just great."  Pressley expects 1986 to be an  exciting and challenging year  for the Sunshine Coast.  "It would be an honour to  represent the people of the  Village of Sechelt during that  year and the next," she concluded.  //  We are competitive../'  Shop and Compare!

CHAMBER DINNER  The thirty-eighth celebration  tor the Sechelt Chamber of  Commerce held at Sechelt  Legion's Jack Mayne  Auditorium on Saturday, October 26 was a very fine salute  to the Citizen of the Year. Seeing as how I was the lucky recipient I can speak with personal  knowledge of the event.  A beautiful scroll, the work  of Elizabeth R. Low, was  presented by the Chamber president Dick Proctor. Toast to the  Queen was made by Jack  Mayne, a Good Citizen of  another year. Neil Campbell  was master of ceremonies, a job  he did well. Toast to the  Chamber was made by Sechelt  Mayor Joyce Kolibas who also  had some very nice words to say  about the Citizen of the Year,  taking time from her own anniversary celebration to spend  some time at the banquet.  Marie Hoffar was busy getting and keeping everything in  order. Presentations were made  from St. Mary's Hospital  Employees Union by Dorothy  Goeson and Lil Peters, and  from the Sechelt Garden Club  by Jack McLeod. Mary Connor  said a grace contributed by Ada  Dawe.  I would like to thank the  Sechelt Chamber of Commerce  for the evening and for choos-  v  ing me as the Citizen of this  year. I am also very grateful for  all   the   cards   and   verbal"  messages I have received; %fp  kind of the organizations afid-  friends.  Out of town guests were my,  sister and spouse, Ralph aner"  Connie Smart, nieces Gloria  Connor, Helen Bird arid friend  Georgina Stevenson. y  The roast beef dinner was  catered by the Sechelt Legion  ladies and the Lions Club manned the bar.  Music for dancing was supplied by Stephen Hubert arid  Common Knowledge, which included Ken Gustafson, Steve  Warner and W. Duffy.

Knowing how precious  favourite dolls are, the Arts  Centre assures anyone willing to  lend a doll that they will take  the greatest of care with them. '  Concert delights seniors  by Robert Foxall  It was Robbie Burns who  wrote "The best laid plans of  mice and men oft gang agley".  The aptness of this was proven  to me this evening, the evening  of October 26, when the Halfmoon Bay Hams and . the  Sechelt 69ers gave a concert at  the Seniors' Hall.  I made my plans to go and  quite early showed up at the hall  with my notebook in my hot little hand, and made copious  notes of what turned out to be a  most excellent performance.  Then the gremlins showed up  and ruined my whole performance. The deadline came and I  had not written my story for the  Minister for Intergovernmental Relations, Garde Gardom, was in  Sechelt last week to meet with the Sechelt Indian Band, along with  Attorney General Brian Smith and Minister of Municipal Affairs,  Bill Ritchie. Here Chief Stan Dixon presents Gardom with a framed photograph to commemorate the occasion. The B.C. government has pledged legislation complementary to the federal legislation to be presented to the house later this month by David Crombie, Federal Minister for Indian Affairs. ���Dianne Evans photo  TRADE IN YOUR  IBM SELECTRIC  AND RECEIVE  s 1000 OFF  THENEW  OLIVETTI ETV 240  VIDEOTYPEWRITER  The Olivetti ETV 240 is the typewriter of today and tomorrow.

The applause almost lifted  the roof.  Katharine Kelly made a big  contribution to the evening's  success with Me and My  Sweetheart and encored with  I'm a Big Girl Now.  I'm a little mixed up now  which leads me to suggest that  when we get the -new hall, arrangements be made to give the  reporters printed programs. It  will save us from embarrassing  errors. Bad acoustics can also  lead to embarrassing errors.  George Carpenter favoured  us with September Song. We  also enjoyed from other artists  such favourites as Carmen  Miranda's Boom-Boom Girl,  Calypso, Island in the Sun,  South of the Border and Mar-  ciana.  They were followed by a rock  group who might better be left  nameless but they added to the  evening's enjoyment.  I am not going to attempt to  name the 69ers. They are well-  known to most of my readers  but they brought the evening to  a happy close with such well  known numbers such as Yellow  Bird, Diamonds are a Girl's  Best Friend, Blow Ye Winds  Heigh-Ho, and We Ain't Got  Dames.  We had a switch when the  Hams marched onto the floor  chanting When the Hams Come  Marching In on that Hallelliua  Day.  Connie Wilson was herself as  a very accomplished accompanist .  Here's a message for all  dancers. There will be an  Hawaiian dance on November  16 at the Seniors' Hall. Tickeis  $3 at the door. Refreshments  provided at the intermission.

Coast News, November 4,1985  Wilson challenges  incumbent Vaughan  IAN VAUGHAN  , Incumbent Area A director,  Ian Vaughan, is again running  for a seat on the regional district  board. At this time his major  concerns are zoning for Area A,  and the role of regional directors within their mandate.  ! "Area A needs a new bylaw  and it needs it now," Vaughan  told the Coast News last week.  ���'When you have pigeonhole  zoning as we do now, you end  tip with conflicts. You end up  looking for a place with the  right zoning instead of looking  fof/the right spot."  y'yaughan said that Chris  Woodward, deputy minister of  municipal affairs, has said that  if Bill 62 (an addition to the  municipal act) goes through, the  ministry would be prepared to  accept a request from Area A  asking for a community plan as  soon as possible.  "We have a rough draft of a  community plan for Egmont  and Earls Cove," he said, "and  we must have a community plan  before a new bylaw. The people  have to say what they want  before the bylaw.  "To do it right is very expensive and politically dangerous,  but we have to do what the people want," Vaughan stated.  Vaughan is concerned about  what he sees as a 'subtle misrepresentation of the appropriate role of local government'. At the regional level, he  stated, there are a very restricted  number of items that the provincial government has  delegated to elected representatives, and the province has the  final say even on these. The  regional board is just that, a  board, acting as an agent of the  provincial government in certain delegated areas.  As a regional director,  Vaughan said that he had tried  to stay within his mandate, adding that "I get really excited  when we (the board) go outside  our mandate."  "I have tried to be Fiscally  responsible but this has been  nearly impossible," he continued. "The board continually  debates and then spends tax  money on things like nuclear  free signs and peace conferences. Although I support  many of these things, this is not  within our mandate."  Saying that he cannot support illegal spending of taxpayers' money, Vaughan added  that he is dedicated to  upholding the* law.  "If we don't have law and  order, we have nothing,"  Vaughan stated. "I feel the  issue comes down to one of  responsible representation or  blatant political flag waving."  i^li9^^6^ii^K^M#;  GORDON WILSON  "'^Middle Point resident, Gordon Wilson, is contesting the  Area A director's seat on the  Regional board. Wilson told the  Coast News last week that he  Iklieves people have a responsibility to become involved and  that the choice was whether to  stay home and complain, or get  out and do something.  ^Although Wilson sees zoning  "Ss a concern, he sees, the problems inherent in the present  zoning bylaw as symptoms of  the real issue.  '.< "The real issue is representation." Wilson explained. "I'm  not sure that opting out of the  nyiaw   (no.    264)    was   bad,  because Area A is so different  -trom the rest of the Sunshine  .^jOast. But you can't expect any  ;|"edhomic progress  unless  the  .'eitmmunity as a whole is ready  >i0 identify what and where they  '"vyant that to take place."  ���iy Wilson's major objectives are  |hree-foid   although   he   has  hiany other concerns. Firstly, he  *y.'ould,   if   elected,    try   to  |ie$tablish the present APC as a  fgriore   legitimate   body,   with  regular meetings, and with wide  representation.  "If people feel they have a  voice that's heard, then that's  the first step in participation,"  Wilson said. "Unless people  have the opportunity to be formally heard they become  alienated and that leads to a  fractured community.  / Secondly, Wilson recognises  that Area A has some, of the  oldest families on the coast with  a long history of tenure in the  region, holding clearly defined  ideas and attitudes.  "Newcomers have a new vision of what's going to happen,  and that adds a new  dimension," Wilson said, "but  is is important that the people  who come in do it with respect  for the old timers, and a respect  for their history."  Thirdly, Area A tends to be  thought of as "the end of the  Peninsula", with nothing much  more than bush and wilderness  north of Sechelt, Wilson said.  "We need to increase  awareness of the major municipality to our north, that is,  Powell River, and we should  look towards more co-operation  with them," Wilson continued.  Other issues such as community care facilities for the  retired population of Area A,  and better accessibility to services are concerns, as is  aquaculture.  "I am not opposed to aquaculture, but it is important to  see how to encourage that activity within the limits that we  set," Wilson stated. "We need  to address these issues, we need  to hear dissenting points of  view.  if  ���is  I  8.6%  PER  ANNUM  ONE YEAR TERM DEPOSIT  ��� interest paid on maturity  ��� Minimum s100000  one year locked in  ��� Limited time offer  PENDER HARBOUR  CREDIT UNION  P.O.

RECREATION  HALLOWE'EN  The Halfmoon Bay Recreation Society held a most successful and enjoyable costume  dance at Welcome Beach Hall  last Saturday. Dave Lamb took  first prize dressed as a sleazy  guy and Myrtle the witch - identity unknown - got the ladies'  prize.  And on the subject of  Hallowe'en. Once again our  great fire department volunteers  put on a super evening of  fireworks and Hallowe'en party  at the fire hall on Hallowe'en  night. Despite the foul weather  there was a good crowd on hand  to watch the fireworks light up  and brighten the skies on such a  dull dreary evening.  1.1  Egmont    News  October is a good month  by Ann Cook, 883-9167  Good-bye October - my  j favourite month with cooler  ; weather, and the beautiful  ! autumn leaves, especially maple  j and sumac.  I October was a good month.  ; Hallowe'en celebration in Eg-  I mont was a rainy success. Over  ! 60 Hallowe'eners turned out,  ; many in costume; Joe the  | Bartender   was  the  judge  of  children's costumes so I think  ��� everybody won. The kids got to  drag their bags of goodies with  tnem and eat any amount of  sweets their tummies could  take.  If you didn't fancy cake with  your coffee there was hot soup,  sandwiches and smoked  salmon. Then a big bonfire and  fireworks enjoyed by everyone,  (except the dogs.)  Thanks to everyone who pitched in to make it a fun evening.  NOVEMBER NEWS  AND REMINDERS  The Elves Club raffle will be  drawn on November 11, that's  next Monday. So buy a ticket  for one dollar and if you don't  win $500 you will have helped  make Christmas a bit merrier  for some local children. That  money all goes back into the  community for Christmas  hampers.  Saturday, November 16 is the  "biggie" Pender Harbour  Clinic Auxiliary Christmas  Craft Faire.

"The people have the essentials of food and water but remain in great part homeless,"  Anna told Janet.  "People are helping people,"  Anna said, "churches have  organized some relief programs,  and the Mexican Red Cross  works valiantly to aid the  homeless. Many are quite  discouraged, however, when  they see the mammoth task of  re-building not only homes and  work places but their very lives.  Two Canadian agencies that  will direct contributions for immediate use in earthquake relief  in Mexico are the Red Cross  and the Salvation Army.  The Salvation Army has three  canteens in operation in Mexico  City and has a shipment of canned goods and clothing already  on the way out of Vancouver.  Addresses in Vancouver, The  Canadian  Red  Cross Society,  4750 Oak Street,   Vancouver,  BC V6H 2N9, and The Salvation Army, Suite 611, 198 West  Hastings Street, Vancouver, BC  V6B 1H2.  Each agency asks that 'For  Mexican Earthquake Relief be  written on the donation cheque  or money order.  POPPY FUND DRIVE  Larry Boyd, secretary of Gibsons Legion Branch 109, is just  drawing breath after he and his  committee have organized this  year's Poppy Fund Drive.  "Besides providing funds to  aid war veterans who are unable  to meet some emergency need  or other," says Larry, "the  Poppy Drive does remind the  people of the community of  Remembrance Day on  November 11."  Larry added that although  the Legion's main purpose is to  see to the welfare of Canada's  veterans, there are local projects  in community work that every  branch undertakes.  "Since this is the Legion's  Sixtieth Anniversary, our  branch has joined others across  Canada in providing red tulip  bulbs for planting in public  places."  "Our branch was happy to  join with the Garden Club this  fall to prepare for a massive  display of the red Darwin tulips  in Pioneer Park next spring. We  thank them for their expert  work," said Al Pajak, president  of the Gibsons Legion.  Al said that the Branch has  planted tulip bulbs at the  veteran's section in Seaview  Cemetery, and plans to refurbish the cenotaph there.  Adam McBride has a  Remembrance Day announcement for veterans. "I'll be at the  Roberts Creek Legion in the  afternoon of November 11 to  play the songs of yesteryear."  ADJUSTING TO BLINDNESS  In an interview published October 24 in the West Ender, a  Vancouver weekly newspaper, a  former resident of Gibsons tells  of adjusting to blindness which  overtook her eight years ago.  Joe and Lee Macey lived on  Shoal Look-out facing Howe  Sound and Gambier Island  when he was employed by the  Port Mellon mill. When Joe  Macey retired, they moved to  Vancouver's West End.  "Losing 90 per cent of my vision completely changed my  way of life," Lee Macey is  quoted in the interview, "but  the CNIB first showed me how  to regain my confidence, and  then gave me training in  organizing my household and in  getting around my part of the  city,"  School trustees  The Sechelt Elementary Parents' Group, and Gibsons  Elementary Parents Group will be co-sponsoring with the  Sunshine Coast Teachers' Association, all candidates  meetings for school trustee elections as follows: Sechelt  Elementary School, Tuesday, November 5 at 7:30 p.m.; Gibsons Elementary School, Wednesday, November 13 at 7:30  p.m.  Oops!  Apologies to Assistant Secretary Treasurer Mike Phelan.  Last week we ran an item which said Mike had been elected  president of the Municipal Offenders Association at a recent  convention in Port Hardy.  It should have read, of course, that Mike had been elected  President of the Municipal Officials Association. Sorry,  Mike.

Western Weight Controllers Branch 47 is starting up again for Fall in West Sechelt.  Lose weight sensibly, call 885-5547 (Wendy)  Suncoast Fighter Stroke Group. Stroke victims, join our group for therapy  by Peter Trower  Most of the gliders are  already assembled and waiting  behind the launching ramp like  a phalanx of butterflies. They  come in many hues from plain  white to rainbow coloured. One  pilot from Birmingham, England is sponsored by Planter's  Peanuts and carries their logo  on his wings. He has won recent  meets in Austria and Australia.  Yvonne dubs him "Mr.  Peanut".  We join a group of onlookers  on a rock bluff to the right of  the launching ramp. The entire  meet is being videotaped by  CBUT and technicians with  cameras and directional mikes  search for the best vantage  point. A few tardy pilots straggle up on the chair lift, carrying  their dismantled gliders in canvas tubes like elongated bed  rolls. They unpack their wings,  reassemble them and line up  with the rest. "Where the hell's  Randy Rigg?" shouts someone.  "He's late!"  Eventually, the elusive Randy  Rigg makes his appearance to  joshing comments. All systems  are "go".  Two non-competing pilots  called "wind dummies" take  off first. They simply run down  the short, green ramp and leap  off into space. The air catches  their wings and they loft out  over the buildings of the Grouse  Mountain complex towards the  remote city, 4,000 odd feet  below and many more beyond.  It is too early in the day for  much thermal activity (the  mountain rocks radiate their  best heat in late afternoon) but  the air is deemed buoyant  enough to start the contest. The  pilots launch two at a time and  compete against each other. The  object of this particular exercise  is to make accurate passes over  two painted dots on the rocks  near the brink of the mountain.  (These dots are known inexplicably as "pylons" but is is  less confusing to ignore this  fact.) When their passes are  completed to the ground judges'  satisfaction, the competing  pilots race for the landing field  at Cleveland Park. Point scoring is based on the accuracy of  the passes, the proximity of the  landing to the centre of a bull's  eye painted on the field and the  total time consumed.  Two by two, the intrepid  birdmen position themselves on  the ramp and hurl off into infinity, 30 seconds apart.  Yvonne and 1 learn a new term  called "vortexing". It is possible for the lead pilot to catch his  opponent in the disturbed air of  his wake, causing the other  glider to lose altitude. As we  watch, this very phenomenon  occurs. "Vortex the shit out of  him, Jim!" some friend of the  lead pilot shouts as his opponent flounders and sinks. As I  observed   earlier,   these   guys  have their own language.  They are not all guys,  however. Four ladies are also  competing, one of them, a  mother with five kids. The  youngest of her offspring is only two months old. The mind  boggles. I feel more cowardly  than ever.  To ensure fairness and  because they fly slightly lighter  gliders, the ladies compete  against each other. But they are  equally as adept in the air as  their male counterparts.  Finally all the competitors are  launched and floating around  the mountain like a flock of  many coloured moths. It is time  to quit the peak. I have noticed  by now, that the chair lift has a  disconcerting habit of stopping  every so often. Hopefully, this  will not happen on the return  ride. Of course it does. Yvonne  and I are stranded in motionless  limbo for about a minute.  "Keerist!" I moan. The old  acrophobia is really getting a  workout today.  Yvonne and I have lunch at  the Grouse Nest and the food  helps to settle my queasy  stomach. Then we wander  around the snowless cut of the  ski run for a while, enjoying the  bird's eye view of Vancouver  and waiting for the next launch.  We discover that there is private  road connecting Grouse with  the world below. "I think I'll  walk out on that," I say to  Yvonne, only half in jest.  But realities must be faced.  Soon the pilots are back on the  peak again, ready for another  tilt with eternity. It is time to  head down below and watch  them land.  Yvonne assures me that the  first part of the return journey  on the Sky Lift is the worst. The  gondolas appear to literally  charge from the docking shed  and plunge madly past the first  pylon, right over the edge of the  earth. After this, they throw on  the brakes and proceed at a  saner pace to the bottom.  We grab the back seat again.  The car fills rapidly with people.  I sit in queasy anticipation of  that first stomach turning  plunge. Then a lady sits down  beside us who is obviously as  nervous as I am. She is from  New Zealand and starts telling  us about a sky ride there that  sounds considerably worse than  this one. It employs four person  plexiglass gondolas shaped like  bubbles, with a clear view in all  directions including down. I  thank God for small mercies.  Somehow, ther presence of a  fellow acrophobic sets me at  ease. Misery, indeed, loves company. After the initial,  nauseating rush, it isn't too bad.  The lady and I chat animatedly  (and somewhat desperately) all  the way down.  To be continued  Detachment and will also be  distributed by the schools.

These students include  Jean Bilous, Roberta Sim,  Denise Foxall and Lisa McCourt.  The most recent event was the  Hallowe'en   dance,    held   at  Chatelech October 29. The  costumes were really good and  the dance was a complete success. The student council has  ideas for a Christmas dance too.

Also this year  the school is going to try to start  up a ski club again as it has in  previous years.  For those people at Chatelech  who don't bring their own  lunch, the home economics  room has a delicious lunch program going. The food is really  good and is nutritious as well.  On Monday they have 'make  your own sandwiches'. On  Wednesday it's chili dogs,  cheese dogs or soup. Then on  Thursday they serve minestrone  soup or chili and a bun. These  are all only $1.00 each.  The student council is right  now writing thank-you notes to  the parents who helped with the  Hallowe'en dance.  Undercover reviews  Architectural history  by Betty and  Perry Keller  .,- Samuel Maclure: Architect  by Janet Bingham, Horsdal and  Schubart Publishing.  Here's a book for those who  like their history in tangible  form.  Samuel Maclure, who is  described by the renowned architect Arthur Erickson as "the  most gifted of early British Columbia architects", specialized  in the design of those huge,  comfortable family homes that  used to characterize  Vancouver's West End and  Shaughnessy districts. He was  responsible for the construction  of "Gabriola" (built in 1905) at  1523 Davie Street in Vancouver  (it's now The Mansion Restaurant), Brock House (1911) at  3875 Point Grey Road, and the  forty-room "Hatley Park" in  Victoria (built in 1910 and now  used as Royal Roads Military  College).  Besides giving brief histories  of Maclure's more important  buildings, author Janet Bingham, in crisp, well-edited prose,  tells the story of Maclure's  pioneer family and the part they  played in the founding of the  brickworks at Clayburn in the  Fraser Valley and of The World  newspaper in Vancouver.  Although we would have  preferred larger and more frequent illustrations - we plead  9___X  !--_  _l.l-_T__3_PO|  Quote of the Week  The gift ot God to this enlightened age is the knowledge of the  oneness of mankind and of the  fundamental oneness of religion.  Baha'i writings  guilty to a fondness for picture  books - the photos in this book  illustrate the text exceptionally  well, and the details in most of  them - despite their age - are  very sharp.  Bingham has completed her  study of this pioneer architect  with a series of appendices  which list all known examples  of Maclure's work in the lower  mainland, besides a few as far  away as Toronto. So next time  you feel like taking your visiting  relatives on  a tour of Van  couver's (or New Westminster's  or Victoria's) posher homes,  here's the right guide book tp  take along with you. t  *'�� ��� ii ivi 111 i#^,~Fi#n'sy*.

The  Pender Harbour Hotel is not  the Ritz, and isn't prepossessing from the exterior, but  once you come inside to the  Sea Galley Restaurant, you  soon forget the outside  world. From the top of a  ridge overlooking all of  Pender Harbour, the Sea  Galley offers a spectacular  view, even on a grey evening.  The lights below twinkle, and  you can see a few boats  hastening home.  The menu is attractively  hand printed in calligraphy,  and offers a limited but  satisfactory range of choices.  The soups were limited to  French onion at $3.25, which  was piping hot, cheesy and  quite spicy, the way I prefer  it. Appetizers included  Escargot, Chicken Dippers,  and Deep Fried Mushrooms,  all priced between $2 and $4.  Seafood is the specialty,  and the Sea Galley offers  Grilled Salmon Steak, Fillet  of Sole, and Curried Shrimp.  1 had Prawns sauteed in  butter and garlic, and, according to the menu, flambeed  in cognac. Though I didn't  get to see the flambe, the  prawns were piquant and  tender; the portion was certainly generous. Cauliflower  with cheese sauce isn't my  favourite vegetable, but it  was well-cooked, still a little  crisp.  My companion chose a  New York Steak at $8.95,  not feeling up to a larger  Sirloin. Other meat entrees  included Chicken Cordon  Bleu and a veal dish. The  steak was cooked to his taste,  with just enough seasoning.  Dinner came with a small  salad, baked potato, a  vegetable, and toasted garlic  bread. The plates were hot,  an important point which is  too frequently overlooked.  The coffee came quickly,  and was quite good, not too  strong. I have an aversion to  those little plastic milk containers which always seem to  squirt, so I was pleased to  have an ample jug of cream.  Dessert was limited to fresh  apple pie and ice cream,  which was excellent and a  bargain at $2.  It's difficult for a small  restaurant with a low turnover to keep a wide choice  of wines and spirits. The Sea  Galley doesn't try to compete  with the gourmet establishments, or the pseudo-  gourmets who serve Baby  Duck in an ice bucket for  $20. You can relax and order  a beer with your steak if you  wish, or choose from a small  wine list.  The restaurant itself was  quiet, clean, uncluttered and,  above all, unpretentious.  Donna served us quickly and  capably, with a lovely smile.  Because we were dining early, we were the only patrons  until mid-way through our  meal. The bill was under $40,  including drinks.  In the summer, with the  spectacular view, the Sea  Galley is a perfect spot for a  leisurely meal; in November,  we were glad to be inside  looking out at the lights.

Coast News, November 4,1985  Prop forward Brent Lineker demonstrates the straight arm approach off a peeling maul during rugby action last Saturday.  ���Jay Pomfret photo  Gibsons loses  a close one  by Jay Pomfret  A regulation rugby game in  the Vancouver Rugby Union  has two 35 minute halves. Last  Saturday, Gibsons First 15  outplayed Vancouver's Ex  Britannia in set scrums, lineouts  and backfield play but the loose  rucking and mauling went to the  Green Pack.  Of the 70 minutes of action,  Gibsons deservedly won at least  60 minutes but were slapped in  the face for the remaining 10.  Scoring opened midway  throughout the first half when  scrum half Dave Macleod,  under heavy pressure deep in  Britannia territory, wisely pop-  kicked a short 10 yard up-and-  under.  The kick was short and high  enough for Macleod to catch on  his own, blanketed by Brits as  he fell into the end zone for the  try. Dave Rainer converted to  end the half, with the score at  6-3 after the Brits kicked a  penalty field goal.  Gibsons continued to contain  the Brits throughout most of the  second half with Freeman Smith  once again smoking his opposition with a 25 yard solo score;  Rainer shot wide on the conversion attempt.  At this point in the game the  Gibsons side showed overconfident. Ex Brits suddenly  opened up a beautiful second  phase scoring drive from a very  talented winger who faked inside and then bulleted to the  outside, leaving Gibsons' backs  behind.  The score was converted and  with the earlier field goal the  East Side boys went home with  a 12-10 victory over the  hometown Blues.  The Thirds are still contending in the top four teams of  their division so a rematch in  the second half of the season  should tell a story.  Next week the Thirds are off  to Braemar Park to meet the  Red Lions.  Golf pace slows  by Alec Warner  The pace of golfing activity  has slowed a little with the approach of the "mild" and  "dustless" fall and winter Sunshine Coast weather! However,  except for an occasional extra  damp day or (heavens forbid)  two or more inches of snow, the  course remains open seven days  a week.  The Winter Tournament  starts on November 9, so there  is still a few days left to sign up.  CORRECTION  An error appeared in  last week's advertisement for THE WEIGHT  ROOM.

Young bowlers raising funds  Our Y.B.C. bowlers will  again be selling the Y.B.C.  chocolate coated almonds as a  fund raiser. The money derived  from this sale goes to youth  bowling here and across  Canada. The money does NOT  go to the Bowling Centre!  We had our annual visit from  Old Orchard Lanes Bowlers in  an eight game singles tournament held last Sunday. As usual  Old Orchard Bowlers took most  of the money. Phyllis Francis  took third spot, Michele  Whiting fifth spot and a high  single and Barb Christie tied for  ninth spot. And that was the  best we could do, but we'll get  even next April when we visit  them.  In league action Pat Prest  rolled a 311 single in the Classic  League and in the Wednesday  Coffee League Dorothy Robinson was tops with a 305 single  and a 785 triple. The only other  300 game by George Caldwell, a  302 single in the Sechelt Golden  Age League.  We held the house round for  the five pin Championship  Tournament in which the eventual provincial winners will  bowl on T.V. Our house winner  was Freeman Reynolds with a  scratch total of 2489 for 10  games and included games of  311-319 and 355. In second  place was last year's winner,  Sue Whiting, with a 10 game  total of 2410 with games of 306  and 338. Freeman will bowl in  the provincial finals to be held  at Lougheed Lanes November  30.  In the Classic League Barb  Christie rolled a 326 single and a  936 four game total and  Freeman Reynolds a 271 single  and a 1006 total.  In the Gibsons A League  Kathy Clark rolled a 319 single  and a 756 total and Eileen  Johnson a 301 single in the  Wednesday Coffee League.

SPARE THAT TREE  A tree is a tree is a tree, but I  do enjoy looking at the huge  tree between North and Waugh  Lakes where the logging is happening. I have even stopped and  taken pictures of this tree, standing there looking so old and  big and handsome.  I questioned one of the loggers and he said it was probably  not a good tree as far as lumber  profit, but it's a good tree to  look at and it took a LONG  time to grow there.  I'll bet there are a lot of other  people who enjoy it and a lot  more who will, now that it's out  in the open and all the trees  around it for acres have been  removed.  If it's really not of much  value dollarwise and no harm to  anyone please, Woodsman,  spare that tree!  WHARF RD.

"I am a big believer in community," Marsden told the  Coast News last week. "And  there are problems on the  regional board. Dan Campbell,  (former minister of municipal  affairs who recently completed  a report on the regional board)  pointed out things that are  wrong, and right as well. I  would like to help with the  changes."  Marsden, who has had many  years of experience in municipal  affairs, with the City of Winnipeg and as a member of the  Residents' Advisory Group for  St. Boniface, has been an active  alternate director for his area.  "I believe that alternates  should be a part of the  process," Marsden said. "There  has to be co-operation between  the director, the alternate and  the APC. The alternate has to  be ready to step in at any time.  "I've probably got more  meetings to my credit than some  of the present directors," he  quipped.  Restructuring, a major concern in Area C, has given  Marsden plenty of food for  thought, he said.  "It has been advocated for  some 10 years now, but I believe  there has never been enough  proper study," Marsden stated. ;  "We don't have enough facts '  and figures to take to the public  and sell the idea. You must be  able to weigh the pros and cons  of it, and personally I feel I  would like to learn more about  it before making a decision."  Marsden sees the fracturing  of the community into many  different groups as detrimental.  "There's the Chamber of Com-  rce, the Economic Development  Commission, the Tourism  Association, the municipalities,  the Community Development  Officer," he said. "I feel we  need more unity."  The approaching self government of the Sechelt Indian Band  means that there should be  more co-operation, both ways,  said Marsden.  "It's interesting that the  Grades six and seven at Sechelt  Elementary now do half a day a  week of Native Studies, and  there is now an Indian teacher  at the school," he said. "We'll  need to develop more of that  when self government comes."  The widespread nature of  Area C poses some problems  for the director, Marsden  pointed out.  "It's hard to get to know all  the people," he explained, "but  that's a task I'm looking forward to, getting to know them  all.  "I feel there is not enough  discussion and compromise and  there's sometimes too much  confrontation," Marsden added, "What we have to be is a  real Sunshine Coast - we have to  tie the communities together."  Better use of the inlet for  tourism, advertising the  regional board so that people  know better what is going on,  getting a full communications  system operating between the  different areas, these are all  issues Marsden would like to see  raised at the board.  "There are a lot of things I'd  like to see done," Marsden concluded, "but it all takes time."  O.A.P.O. #38  Public Bingo  Harmony Hall  Gibsons  Every Thursday  Starting Nov. 7  Early Bird Bonanza  at 7:30 p.m.  All Paper Bingos  LEN VAN EGMOND  Real estate agent and  developer, Len Van Egmond, is  contesting the Area C director's  seat on the regional board in the  up-coming election. Van Egmond told the Coast News last  week that he is running for office because he is becoming increasingly concerned with what  is happening on the regional  board.  "There seems to be a lack of  accountability to the tax payers  in some areas," Van Egmond  said. "For example, with a  $300,000 planning budget, we  don't even have beach improvements at Davis Bay. The  priorities have become twisted.  You have people in Granthams  making decisions about what  happens in Porpoise Bay."  Van Egmond went on to say  that he is very concerned about  the quality of life for his family,  both now and in the future, and  it is this concern that has spurred him to become active in the  decision making process at the  local level.  "As a real estate agent and  developer I understand how real  estate values can be protected  but 1 also know how the values  can be deteriorated," Van Egmond stated.  Although there is much to  do, Van Egmond does not want  to see any unwarranted tax increases. His understanding of  financial planning and the value  of the taxpayers' dollar ensures  that he will try to maximize  return on the tax dollar, he said.  "The regional board hasn't  worked that well for the community,"   Van   Egmond  con  tinued. "It has become very  bureaucratic and very expensive. For example, there has  been a lot of money spent on  community plans, where we  could have called upon the  plans from other areas, and used them as a base. All you need  is already there - have public  meetings to iron out the points  of concern, but you don't need  to spend the amount of money  on them that has been spent."  As a major tax payer in the  area Van Egmond said that he  cannot afford any major tax increases 'for whatever lofty  cause', and promised that he  would be opposed to any such  moves.  Restructuring is a major concern of Area C residents and  Van Egmond said that he would  appreciate having more information on the matter.  "What we have to do is get  all the costs and facts clearly  defined before we're even asked  to make a decision," he said.  The other major event on the  horizon for Area C is the  emergence of a self governing  Sechelt Indian Band.  "We must pay attention to  the effect a strong, well managed municipality is going to have;  that is hot yet understood,"  ,Van Egmond added.  Van Egmond sees his  understanding of the political  process as standing him in good  stead were he to be elected.  "I believe L would be effective in serving the area," Van  Egmond concluded. "I believe I  can make the board a better  board and I think I would be a  positive influence on it,  representing the best interests of  this community, because I share  their interests and concerns."

Tel in the summer.  "I still think B.C. Tel should  participate in this as a joint venture," Clark told the Coast  News. "This is definitely  something the public should  start thinking about.

Tel) owe anything  to the communities they make  their money from?"  Clark believes that the move  away from decentralization and  depersonalization has to start  somewhere and that B.C. Tel  has a golden opportunity to do  so in this community.  "We can't change everything  all at once, that's absurd,"  Clark said, "restructuring  something as large as the multinationals has to start in a small  way."  B.C. Tel closed the Gibsons  Phone Mart after a nine month  trial period because it was losing  money; the two employees were  offered the chance to relocate in  North Vancouver, but failing  their decision to do so, they  were laid off.  "B.C. Tel has been mandated  to provide universal service for  fifty years," Clark explained,  "they own and control the network, they dominate the sale of  large switchboards. When they  complain about losing money br  only breaking even on local  Phone Marts they are not considering the overall picture.  They don't consider the huge  amount of money they make  here on the Sunshine Coast  from long distance phone  calls."  TWU business agent Linda  Hiebert was also at the meeting,  and supports Clark in his assessment of the situation.  Both Hiebert and Clark stress  that the TWU does not want a  Donnybrook with B.C. Tel.  "We want to co-operate with  B.C. Tel," Clark reiterated.  "This whole thing won't work  if there is no co-operation. We  have tried everything but we  haven't been able to make it ���  clear. This is a real struggle for  the Trade Union movement and  the only way to win is for the  people in communities like this  one to say 'Wait a minute', and  take a look."

This  feature will not be used in its  work on the B.C. coast, but the  tanks will be useful to stabilize  the shallow draft vessel in high  seas.  It has a capacity of 537 gross  tons and its hull is made of  double-thick riveted steel.  "Though it looks like hell  now," said Walters, "it will be  repainted when the weather  allows."  Mike Walters will be the  ship's skipper. He has had 12  years experience sailing the B.C.  coast as a tow boat skipper for  North Arm Transport. His  partner, Lanny Aitken will be  handling the administration and  bookkeeping from their office  in Vancouver.  The presence of the ship will  not only add to the romantic  appeal of Gibsons harbour, but  will add an economic benefit to  the area as well. According to  Walters, most of the shop's six  man crew, consisting of a skipper, mate, engineer, cook and  two deck hands, will live on the  Sunshine Coast. In addition,  the ship's provisions will be purchased locally as much as possible.
