 Fish farms get support of governments  LECilSL<Vf">o��    U(_.ftfV^4.  VSV |Xif  e&j  _^<J1  ���*;������>.���  by Brad Benson  Last week's conference on  aquaculture proved that B.C.'s  aquaculture industry, though  still in a fledgling state when  compared to the rest of the  world, is finally coming of age.  The conference, titled the Second Annual Sunshine Coast  International Aquaculture Conference, was held in Sechelt's  Legion Hall. It ran concurrently  with Western Canada's first  aquaculture trade show, which  was held in the Sechelt Indian  Band Hall.  It was attended by 360  registered delegates, fifty of  them from foreign countries,  and included representatives  from every level of government  involved, plus bankers, investors, equipment manufacturers, suppliers, technical consultants, and fish and oyster  farmers. Also in attendance  were local, provincial and national media.  Sponsored by the Sunshine  Coast Aquaculture Association,  the conference opened Tuesday  evening with speeches from the  two most important local  organizers, Sid Heal, president  of the association and Oddvin  Vedo, Economic Development  Commmissioner, who is the  man most singularly responsible  for the recent growth of  aquaculture in B.C.  Delegates were welcomed by  Richard Tomkies, President of  the  Sunshine   Coast   Tourism  Association,   Sechelt    Mayor  "Joyce   Kolibas   and   Regional  Board Director,  Brett  McGillivray.  Dr. MacEachern of the  Ministry of Agriculture and  Food then spoke, first congratulating Sid Heal and Oddvin Vedo on their work and  then offering the delegates an  official, greeting from the  government of B.C.  Thursday's sessions were split i  between the Legion Hall and the;  Bella Beach Motel, and also ran-  from 8 in the morning until late '  at night. y  On Friday, the last day of the  conference, the Malibu Princess  took the delegates on a tour of  local fish farms in Agamemnon  Channel and Hotham Sound,  y,  The conference, which received praise from the delegates,  was the direct result of the  burgeoning of the B.C. aquaculture industry over the past  two years. According to figures  released at the conference, there  were only ten salmon farms in  operation in 1984. Thirty more  went into operation in 1985.  There are another forty-one  aquaculture foreshore leases approved to date, and thirty-two  are currently at the review stage.  The most important issue of  the conference was the change  in the support for aquaculture  that has come about from both  the provincial and federal  governments.  In the past, the industry was  not   considered   important  enough by government to  receive very much in the way of  support services. That has now  changed drastically.  Tom May, President of  Cockburn Sea Farms attributes  the sudden change in the growth  of aquaculture to a change in attitude on the part of the government, "Before, they were considered our adversary, now they  are helping us."  As a result of the provincial  government's awakening to the  potential of aquaculture, it was  agreed this year that the  Ministry of Agriculture and  Food would assume the lead  role for co-ordinating  aquaculture development with  the eight other provincial  ministries involved.  Vedo to co-ordinate  Province grants  for Expo fish  $150,000  show  Delegates to the second annual Sunshine Coast International Aquaculture Conference disembark at  Davis Bay Pier after concluding the successful three-day event with a boat tour of local fish farms.  Co-operative effort -���-*��.  Coast to get promotion  The Sunshine Coast will  receive plenty of publicity during 1986 thanks to grants from  the SCRD as well as from both  municipalities. Three separate  approaches to advertising  received attention at last week's  Gibsons Council meeting and at  the SCRD finance meeting.  The Gibsons and District  Chamber of Commerce, the  Sechelt Chamber, the Sunshine  Coast Tourism Association and  the Pender Harbour Motel and  Hotel Owners' Association have  joined together to take out full  colour, full-page advertising for  the entire area in a 400,000 copy  booklet to be distributed in 1986  by the South Western B.C.  Tourism. Association  (SWBCTA).  The promotion will cost  $6,000 or less than two cents a  copy and will be displayed at the  B.C. Pavilion at Expo as well as  at all ports of entry in the province.  "We've never seen a broader  based approach," said Director  John Burnside in support of the  request for funds. "They are  really tying the package  together."  The Gibsons Chamber also  has the opportunity, he explained, to put the Sunshine Coast  on the map as one of the five  tourist    destination   areas  designated by the SWBCTA.  "Sunshine Circle Route"  bring   tourists  along  the  The  will  length of the coast in both directions, from Vancouver and  from Powell River and then onto Vancouver Island.  If the Chamber can raise  $3,000 the provincial government will match that amount to  give the $6,000 needed to participate in the promotion.  Secheit Council has already promised $500, and at last week's  council meeting it was agreed  that Gibsons would contribute  $1,000, said Burnside, provided  the SCRD would match the  municipalities' $1,500 with a  similar grant.  The SCRD Finance Committee voted to grant the request  and the Sunshine Coast is on its  way as a major destination in  southwestern B.C.  The Chamber of Commerce  also needs a further $3,000,  Burnside said, to keep the successful Pioneer Park tourist  booth open eight hours a day,  seven days a week until May  when it is possible to obtain  government funding for summer work programs.  The booth handled in excess  of 5,000 enquires this past summer, not just for Gibsons, but  for the entire Sunshine Coast.  Gibsons Council has decided to  contribute $1,500 towards this  function, and the SCRD quickly  followed suit with another  $1,500.  A $150,000 grant has been  awarded to the Sunshine Coast  Tourism Association, announced B.C. Agriculture Minister,  Harvey Schroeder at last week's  Aquaculture Conference held in  Sechelt.  The grant is to be used to  mount Aqua-West '86, a program designed to bring Expo  visitors to the Sunshine Coast  next summer and at the same  time promote the aquaculture  industry. It will be staged on the  Sunshine Coast and will  culminate with next year's third  annual Sunghine Coast International Aquaculture Conference,  ^scheduled for September 3 to 7.  y In a press release from the  Tourism Association, the  minister is quoted as saying, "I  had no difficulty getting the  proposal through cabinet. The  government sees aquaculture as  an industry which will help  diversify our economy. We  hope Aqua-West '86 will trigger  development province wide."  The grant will come in two  payments: $50,000 immediately  to fund planning and $100,000  in early 1986 to defray expenses.  Pivotal to awarding the grant  was a decision by the Sunshine  Coast Regional Board and the  its Economic Development  Commission to assign at least 50  per cent of Commissioner Od-  vin Vedo's time to co-ordinate  the project over the next three  months. The Tourism Association will reimburse the regional  district for Vedo's time and expenses.  "We needed a top-rate coordinator," the minister said,  adding "Oddvin is our man."  The proposal to mount  Aqua-West '86 was originated  two years ago by Tourism  Association President Richard  Tomkies and Economic  Development Commissioner  Oddvin Vedo.  An original request to the  department of fisheries and  oceans to release millions of  coho salmon into BC's waters  for anglers during Expo was  turned down.  Preliminary plans for Aqua:  -West '86 calls Ifpr the use of a  cruise ship to accommodate  them. It will board the delegates  at B.C. Place after the Food  Pacific Fair wraps up there and  sail for the Sunshine Coast.  In an interview with the  Coast News, Oddvin Vedo, explained that plans are underway  to stage trade fair displays of  different fish farm set-ups from  around the world in both Gibsons and Sechelt. They will iriy;  elude U-Catch-em pens run by-:  the Tourism Association whicte  will double as extra moorage?  space for boating visitors.       y)  The Gibsons site includes thc5  area between the government^  wharf and Armours Beach. The}  Sechelt site will be placed in;  Trail Bay.  The Tourism Association  reports that support for the project is expected from fisheries  and oceans, other government'  agencies, and the aquaculture  industry..As.many as 45 jobs'  may be created in the communiy  ���ty.  A project of this magnitude  requires a tremendous amount  of co-ordination and cooperation from government and  industry. As Commissioner  Vedo commented, "This is the  concept we have today. It might  change when we get down to  reality."  Area F meeting  On Monday, October 28 at 7:30 p.m. there will be a  meeting for all residents in Area F, held at the Langdale  Library. The main item at the meeting will be a slide presentation by the regional district planners giving an interesting and  comprehensive overview of the settlement plan.

See story on page 18  m  "We'll use 'Let's Talk About  Schools' (LTAS) as a springboard," said Minister of  Education Jack Heinrich at a  meeting in Davis Bay elementary last Tuesday, "I was  prepared to stick my neck out to  get that report and there is  evidence that we acknowledge  what has been said."  Heinrich was on the Sunshine  Coast to meet with School  District No. 46 (SD46) trustees  and senior staff and to hear  from the public, teachers and  delegations representing both  sides of the Bowen Island  dispute.  The trustees had prepared a  list of 18 questions for the  minister, dealing with among  other things, Bowen Island,  school bus funding, curriculum,  autonomy for the board,  kindergarten teachers,  philosophy, travel expenses for  children and capital needs for  building programs.  "Interesting things will come  out in the spring," said  Heinrich, although when pressed for more detailed plans he  explained that the government  is presently working on the  budget, and that spring would  be the earliest any concrete information would be forthcom  ing. He would not elaborate on  the ministry's philosophy  towards education except to say  it was fairly put on page 13 of  the LTAS summary booklet.  Again and again Heinrich  returned to the LTAS report  and what effect it would have  on the new School Act. The  move towards a new act is two-  pronged, he said. "There's the  policy thrust and we're moving  on that now. Then there's the  legislative thrust. We will want a  consensus review on the School  Act.  "We're on a green chain,"  continued Heinrich," and I'm  not going to let it stop. Governments are great for thinking and  regurgitating and not getting  things done - that's not my  style. We have to get a consensus and I want a wide cross-  section of people involved."  Heinrich said that the  Ministry of Education, the B.C.  School Trustees Association  (BCSTA) and the B.C.  Teachers' Federation (BCTF)  would not be the sole authors of  the report. School District  Secretary Roy Mills asked  whether the BCSTA was not  representative of the public, being mostly elected officials, but  Heinrich said that he wanted the  public involved.  The trustees' demands and  observations were noted, and  Heinrich said that the trustees  should "leave it with me and see  what happens."

They gave aquaculture here its credibility. These foreign  investors must be appreciated for what they have done to  help get B.C.'s industry off and running.  However it is time to begin questioning further foreign  investments. Do we want to see Canada's newest industry  dominated by foreign control in the years to come?  Some of our largest foreign investments have been coming from Norway, a world leader in aquaculture and a  country that allows no foreign investment itself.  That country also has several other regulations that  should be considered. It limits each fish farm to 8,000  cubic meters. We already have fish farms larger than that.  It also restricts ownership so that an individual or corporation can not own a majority interest in more than one fish  farm.  Should we not be considering Norway's wisdom in these  matters?  Brad Benson  Ironic note  It is ironic that Sechelt Council is sending a letter to  Economic Development Commissioner Oddvin Vedo expressing appreciation for his work and regret at his  resignation.  Sechelt Council has been particularly uninformed of the  work of the EDC, mainly because its current representative on the commission, Alderman Bill Forman, has not  attended a meeting for months. Vedo himself has called  Sechelt's lack of attendance at commission meetings "an  embarrassment."  One of the things which Vedo feels strongly about is the  necessity for more municipal representation on the commission, from business as well as government sectors.  Sechelt Council should begin to take seriously its  responsibility and opportunity for economic development  within its jurisdictions. The least it can do is assign to the  task a representative who will attend the relevant meetings  and find out what is going on.  Fran Burnside  ...from the filet of Hi* COAST liiWS  5 YEARS AGO  The chairman of the Sunshine Coast Regional Board,  David Hunter, predicts "absolute chaos" on Highway  101 between the Langdale ferry terminal and Gibsons  when jumbo-class ferries start service.  As a result of the special meeting with Larry Sorken  of the Provincial Lands Branch last Wednesday, Joe  Harrison, chairman of the regional board's Water Lot  Lease Committee,, is requesting input from the local  public to be used to establish "guidelines and  priorities" governing the granting of water lot leases on  the Sunshine Coast.  10 YEARS AGO  A fire in the early hours of Thursday morning this  week totally destroyed the Wilson Creek shake mill. The  fire, which caused an estimated $70,000 damage to the  building, began in the storage area at the front of the  mill. Sechelt RCMP are investigating and the possibility  of arson has not been ruled out.  15 YEARS AGO  One thousand, three hundred and forty visitors to the  Sunshine Coast were welcomed at the Tourist Booth at  the Sunnycrest Mall, open for its first season. The booth  was open for 530 hours between June 19 and September  2 and by far the greatest number of visitors were from  points within the province.  20 YEARS AGO  One hundred persons attended the Sunshine Coast  Indian Tribal banquet, ending a day-long conference  which   attracted   representatives   from   the   Gulf   of  Georgia area and Squamish-Capilano bands.  25 YEARS AGO  Approval was received from the B.C. Hospital Insurance Service to conduct a plebiscite to authorize the  formation of a Hospital Improvement District. The formation of this district, which would co-incide generally  with School District 46, will provide the means for raising the community's share of funds necessary to build a  new hospital.  30 YEARS AGO  A second ferry was announced for the Horseshoe Bay  - Gibsons Black Ball Ferries run this week. The steam  vehicle and passenger ferry Scotian will join the MV  Bainbridge, now serving the route, as soon as it completes its journey from Halifax to the B.C. coast via the  Panama Canal.  35 YEARS AGO  Bonfire parties are scheduled to be held at Pender  Harbour, Halfmoon Bay, Sechelt, Roberts Creek and  Gibsons as part of the Kiwanis Shellout program over  Hallowe'en this year.  40 YEARS AGO  Two thirty-passenger ferries are expected to be in  operation serving the Howe Sound in the near future. It  has been announced that the eastern terminus of the  ferry service will be Fishermen's Cove in West Vancouver owing to the poor facilities at Horseshoe Bay.

Even in 1886 when giant trees were the order of  the day, "The Big Tree" was a real curiosity, and the members of  the community delighted in posing for their pictures in front of the  butt cut and the stump. These photos were then reproduced as  postcards and sent as souvenirs to the folks 'back home'. The Big  Tree, as often happens with the giants of the forest, had a modest  core of butt or root rot, and therefore the contractor decided to  burn the butt cut as well as the stump, and in early April 1886 both  were packed with saltpetre and later set on fire. It was probably  Dianne Evans  rain that put out the fire before the job was complete, but it left the  town with another curiosity - the hollow log. This promotion shot,  taken, by Harry T.

Keller  *  Minister leaves many disappointed  : i by Dianne Evans  One good thing that could be  said about Minister of Education, Jack Heinrich's visit to the  Sunshine Coast last week was  that it was made at all. Those  expecting something concrete  were disappointed, and although the minister exuded  charm and bonhomie, I was left  with the feeling that he'd said a  lot of things I didn't quite catch.  It isn't often we get the  chance to hear one of the Victoria nabobs speechify in person  and it's an experience that  shouldn't be missed. I take a lot  of notes at a lot of meetings, but  I left this meeting with pages of  haphazard phrases, and when I  came to culling the meat from  them it didn't amount to much.  There'll be, as always, a Spring budget. The three year  restraint program, designed,  said the minister, to equitably  distribute funds between all  school districts, will end, according to the sunset provision.  There'll be a committee struck  to   examine   the   Let's   Talk  /���About Schools report and then  the minister will gather a consensus of opinion and draw up a  new School Act.  So far there's no indication  from the minister just what he  thinks should go into the new  act; there's no indication that  any of the LTAS report recommendations will be acted upon.  It is true that there wasn't  much talk about teachers'  salaries or their job security  although there was a hint that  certification would be tightened  up.  One could reasonably be  forgiven for wondering if this  isn't a clever ploy to create an illusory atmosphere of harmony  before election time, (despite  the minister's emphatic denial  that there would not be one in  the Spring). If I were a teacher  I'd certainly be on edge,  wondering what's in store,  "after the Act".  1 must admit that I didn't go  to the meeting expecting more  than I came away with,  although I was a little surprised  at the minister's highly defen  sive posture on class size and  " transportation.'  Class size, he said, has proponents on both the small and  the large sides and he's not so  sure that small is better.  Superintendent Denley neatly  pointed out that the school they  were sitting in was 10 students  over the ministry's own guidelines and, when pressed by the  minister, said that according to  the School District's own guidelines, it was 20 students over.  The same attitude was apparent in the transportation  question. Lack of transportation funds means that many  students have to walk to school  beside busy highways and in  areas where bears and cougars  are frequently sighted; if Bowen  Island joins the West Vancouver School District one  parent said the grade sevens  would have to be bussed off-  island, and she thought it a pity  bussing had to start so young.  The minister thought that  was piffle. Why, when he was a  lad, he went 32 miles every day  on the bus and it didn't do him  any harm! And as for getting  help with costs of transportation on the ferries for field trips,  well, we should be glad we don't  live in the north where a trip to  Vancouver is really expensive.  And sexual abuse? Well, it  wasn't the place or the time to  talk about it and it would suffice to say that public awareness  was alleviating the problem etc.  etc.  I would guess that all the people in the room, and there were  quite a number, had serious,  legitimate concerns about  education and all the things that  go with it like bus safety and  field trip costs and leaky  washrooms and chilly portables, not to mention standards  of instruction and the security  of children within the classroom, but if they were looking  to the minister to. reassure in  ways not only political, then I'll  warrant most were disappointed.  And that's a shame.  M aryanne's    viewpoint  Machinery has not solved farm problems  by Maryanne West  Does it sometimes seem that  the "forrader we go the  behinder we get"?  Was wondering about this as  I read of the farming crisis in  North America and of farm  families who own acres of productive land but who are going  hungry because they don't have  enough ready cash to go to the  supermarket to buy food.  Doesn't make sense does it?  The subject interests me  because my farming days in the  forties were during the transition period when the new  technology was just taking over  in England and tractors were  replacing horses. Because it was  war time and steel was required  for tanks rather than plough  shares, new implements were  hard to come by, and for a  while many old horse drawn implements were converted to  tractor use. but inevitably the  tractor needed a whole raft of  new equipment.  Because of war time needs the  practices of traditional farming  changed too. On dairy farms it  had been the custom to keep  just one field to grow winter  feed, oats, turnips and  mangolds and all the manure  was hauled out and spread on  this field which was often called  "Plough ground". Grass grew  naturally and some fields were  left for hay in the summer and  other used for daily cropping by  the cows.  With war time shortages  everyone had to diversify and  the government told each  farmer how many acres of  grassland he had to plough up  to grow grain, wheat oats or  barley depending on the productivity of the soil. This needed artificial fertilizers and also  started the process of treating  grass as a crop and regularly re-  seeding.  The feeling in the air was that  the new technology of mechanization, which was then the new  wave, would usher in a whole  new era of well-being, not only  for the farmer who would be  able to produce so much more,  but for everyone because food  would be so much cheaper.  We all know that hasn't happened, so what went wrong?  For the machinery to be used  effectively the pressure has been  for larger and larger acreages.  Machines are so expensive that  not only have farmers been  forced to take out loans to buy  them but a poor season can.spell  disaster because they've also  been forced to specialize, and  the banks require regular  payments regardless of harvest  conditions.  I don't know what has happened in England where small  mixed farms of a hundred acres  were common. Such a farm  supported a herd of some thirty  dairy cattle, a flock of chickens,  a few pigs and would probably  have a few acres of orchard and  maybe grow some acres of other  cash crops such as potatoes.  Although food was rationed  during the war with only small  amounts of meat, sugar, butter,  cheese and fats, unbelievably  small amounts by today's standards, but we never went  hungry. There was a large  garden, bees, rabbits, chickens,  at least one pig per year, and of  course eggs and milk to supplement the rations.  As well as the farm family the  land supported two other full  time workers and several others  part time at hay time and  harvest. Even small holders,  people who lived on as little as  three to five acres fed their  families well.  I don't see us going back to  small family farms, not unless  we're forced by some natural or  economic disaster of large proportions, but the trend towards  agri-business with even larger  units doesn't look to me as a  panacea.  When dealing with any  natural commodity, plant or  animal we can have no better  manual than nature herself and  natural evolution seems to have  favoured diversification rather  than specialization. Specialization leaves plants and animals  prey to disease and pests, and  those creatures which need  specialized, habitats who are  picky about what they can eat,  are more likely to become extinct than creatures which have  a wider tolerance or are more  flexible. There must be a lesson  there for us to learn.  Post script to last week's column - CBC address is Box 8478,  Ottawa, Ontario K1G 3J5. I  ������MIWWBICTlaiBWMMIWWIIIWWWBHW^^  Coast News, October 21,1985  �����Hilarity cliarges i_i_srepre$ei_tati��ii  ��� Editor:  In the letter to the editor "It  is Happening" (The Press, October 15, 1985), Arthur McGinnis refers to the People's  Economic Strategy For the Sunshine Coast.  He says "This is the plan that  denies tourism and aquaculture  in our future. It discredits the  abilities of small business,  which is the backbone of our  community."  As one of the authors of this  strategy, I can say that this is a  completely false and misleading  statement.  There is not a single negative  reference to tourism in the  strategy. What the strategy does  say regarding visitors is this:  "The priority of strategic in-  ��� itiatives must be the quality of  ������life of the residents of the Suri-  ��� shine Coast and not of the  visitors. Visitors will be attracted because they want to  share in the unique features and  ' quality of life we have establish-  ' ed for ourselves, not for some  unspecified external  population."  Regarding salmon aquaculture we quote from the  Science Council of British Columbia, which has thoroughly  studied the biological, economic  and employment prospects of  salmon farming. Its report on  salmon farming concludes  "that there is a need for further  research and developement in  SKOOKUM JACK  WORK TRUCKS  to bring in the firewood  1977 DODGE 3A TON  ONLY 37,000 MILES  automatic, power steering,  power brakes, radio  SUPER SKOOKUM $1950  1970 FORD 4X4  with 1974 Power Train  FREEWHEELING HUBS  A MOUNTAIN CLIMBER  for only ��1750  1969 GMC Vz TON  307 economy V8 with 3 spd.  transmission, new brakes,  muffler, generator, great body  SUPER SKOOKUM  THIS WEEK $950  Skookum Auto  SALES SERVICE  885-7512   Dealer 7381      885-7008  the areas of disease control/prevention and reduction  of feed costs," and goes on to  say that "aquaculture operations will never be major  employers."  On small business our report  says that "small locally controlled businesses are also frequently the victims of dependence on either external decisions and strategies of big  business or the public sector  spending restraint programs of  senior levels of governments."  When corporations and  senior governments lay off hundreds of people they, in effect,  eliminate customers for small  local businesses. The record of  small business failure in the last  couple of years is the/  undeniable proof.  Our report says jt like it is and  provides a strategy to begin to  resolve the economic crisis we  are in.  The question remains "Why  are Art McGinnis and a few  others so intent on misinform  ing people about the contents of  our strategy?"  The answer has to be that  they do not want people to consider alternatives to the present  disastrous policies pursued by  big business and senior governments.  We hope that many more  people will read and judge our  strategy for themselves.

To date the society is proud  of its achievements in the con  struction of the golf course. The  society is also proud of its policy  of co-operation with all the  agencies involved: The Forest  Service, Fisheries, Water  Management and the SCRD.  In the past few months many  unfounded allegations have  been made by negative factions  within the community. The innuendoes expressd are totally  unfounded and serve but one  purpose. That is to destroy this  community project which has  provided employment and will  complement the tourist attractions of the upper  Sunshine  Coast area.  The directors and the  membership of the Pender Harbour Golf Club Society will  continue to co-operate with the  Sunshine Coast Regional Board  and other agencies to provide a  beneficial facility which will  enhance the recreational potential of the Sunshine Coast. If required, the society would be  pleased to supply the regional  board with information to  satisfy any questions which may  arise.  S.J. Walker  President  Dissenter charges pollution  Editor:  Would you believe a "Recycled Garbage Dump"? ���not just  a few piddling bottles and  newspapers, but a whole goddamned dump! Well, courtesy  of the Pender Harbour Golf  Club Society and the Sunshine  Coast Regional Board (well  represented by Area Director  Ian Vaughan and Alternate  Director Bill Lawrenuk on the  Society Board), we have one  here���in spectacular living colour!  This tribute to the Genius of  Man was conceived earlier this  year when excavations revealed  this long-buried treasure, no  doubt part of the infrastructure  of some long-forgotten logging  camp.  It must have been a tough  decision at the time. "Do we  cover it up and leave it alone or  share it with mankind in some  truly unforgettable way?"  So, aided and abetted by  fisheries and oceans (remember,  the people who brought us  tratinted tuna) and the provincial  ministry of environment, they  chose the latter!  This state-of-the-art result is  now called putting green  number eight and tee-off  number seven, surrounding two  enchanting brown pools���not  blue, anyone one can do  blue���but iron oxide brown!  But what of the leachate percolating from these pools, fed  by   an   underground   spring.  Well, by a fortuitous coincidence there happens to be a  salmon spawning creek nearby  (1985 fisheries count 5,200  spawners) which is now receiving this perpetual flow.  It is claimed by those responsible that this Campbell's soup  and Pacific milk can effluent  (which is spreading an iron oxide bacteria bloom downstream)  is naturally occurring and nontoxic to fish!  The spawning chum salmon  are at this time moving up the  creek in abundance���I leave the  matter of toxicity up to you and  them!  Lyle P. Forbes  Madeira Park  Planning for the future asked  Editor:  I appreciate the editor contacting the works superintendent  of Gibsons regarding the operation of the municipal sewage  system.  I'd hardly expect the superintendent to commit Hari Kari  by divulging the effect their  sewer outfall has on the local  waters and beaches. His comments were well chosen and  guarded.  Is he claiming that there is no  bypass valve and that they have  never dumped raw sewage  through their outfall, which at  700 feet, puts it in a position to  allow its discharge to back flow  through Shoal Channel with the  tide onto our beaches? What  about the times when the system  has been overloaded or when a  user has dumped a noncompati-  ble substance down the drain.  Are we being told that these  conditions never existed?  The Ministry of Environment  has guidelines and controls but  they do include the use of  bypass valves. That is why the  ministry will not allow treatment plant outfall into Howe  Sound.  According to the Greenpeace  Foundation, there is no comparison between the use of septic tanks and municipal treatment plants. Their findings are  that a private septic tank is a  controlled environment producing non toxic and clear effluent  whereas the municipal treatment plant produces a highly  toxic waste when treated or raw  sewage when bypassed.  As for the editor's comment  referring to a so called study  report on Area F about the type  of soil for septic tank use, "it  may not be the best", but no  way is it the worst. Let us not  forget that we are paying  government employees to do  perc. tests on the land so that  building permits can be obtained and there are new structures  going on in Area F; so much for  that report which never did  clearly indicate the real culprit.  As for the heading on my  previous letter, "In Praise Of  Septic Tanks". I'm not trying  to be narrow minded about the  issue, it's just that I hate to be  conned. There are proper  methods and systems to handle  the sewage problems, such as in  The Computer Age Cookbook Series  and Recipe Management System  ��� THE COMPUTERIZED COOKBOOK:  The recipes supplied with MICRO  COOKBOOK were carefully researched  to provide tasty, interesting dishes from-  ingredients commonly found in the  home.

Too  bad, it was short but covered  many issues and, as usual, the  best stuff can't be printed.  The matter of the parking lot  across from the Community  Hall will be a prolonged affair.  The community association has  agreed to share the $350 taxes  with the Masonic Lodge and  has written to the owners, Standard Oil, to propose taking over  the lease if the company would  agree to a change in zoning with  a restriction that the property  could only be used as a parking  lot.  Thus, although the zoning  would be changed from residential to commercial, the property  could not be used for a service  stationer, other such function.  But a change in zoning would  not only require an agreement  binding on the owners of the  land but public approval to  change the settlement plan and  the zoning by-laws.  It's a long process and hardly  seems worth the trouble except  that parking space will become  very important if a turning lane  is put in at the corner,  eliminating most of the present  space along the road. Regional  Director Brett McGillivray said  taxes would probably be lower  if the lot were rezoned for  public assembly.  On the subject of dog control, Brett said that the people  of Roberts Creek had voted in  favour of dog control in a  referendum but another  referendum would have to be  held to choose the preferred  method as it would mean an increase in taxes. He said the main  suggestion was a "two-tiered  contract" with the Gibsons  dogcatcher to patrol the area  below the highway once a week  and to respond to emergency  calls at any time to anywhere in  the Creek.  The cost of the regular patrol  service would be borne by only  the taxpayers below the  highway but the cost of maintaining the callout service would  be spread out over the whole tax  base. Pound fees and the enforcement of licencing requirements would help defray  expenses but not completely.  The problem does seem to  have abated recently and may  not bother some people at all.  But there are dogs who hang  around the school stealing kids'  lunches, travel in packs killing  chickens and other livestock,  and fight and mess the beach in  the summer. The decision as to  how much dog control we want  will be left to the residents and  taxpayers of Roberts Creek  (who says you don't get a say in  what happens to your taxes?)  The next meeting of the community   association   will   be  Wednesday, November 20.  TABLES BOOKED  Over half the tables for the  Roberts Creek Craft Faire on  Sunday, December 1, have been  booked so phone Chris Luster  at 886-5206 if you're interested.  HALLOWE'EN EARLY  Hallowe'en is being  celebrated early in the Creek  with two dances this Saturday,  October 26.

Mall merchants ask  Council to consider  the top of the town  P  FJ  The Sunnycrest Merchants  Association has registered a  protest with the Gibsons Council over the second phase of the  Downtown Revitalization Program which sees a proposed  $430,000 going into the lower  Gibsons area when there are  needs for revitalization in upper  Gibsons as well.  The council was sympathetic  to the merchants' case, and at  the Wednesday planning committee meeting the matter was  discussed at length.  Planner Rob Buchan said  that he had already spoken with  some of the merchants and  wished to clarify the position of  the town on the matter.  "When the program was  brought in by the provincial  government it was specifically  to rejuvenate the downtown  area. That area had to be  geographically defined on a  map in order for us to get any  funding," Buchan explained.  "It is only in. that area that  funds can legally be spent."  The downtown area is defined as stretching from Armours  Beach to the Ritz Motel and one  block back.  In conversation with the  Coast News Buchan said that,  as far as improvements up the  hill are concerned,.they become  a public works issue, and any to  be undertaken will be included  in the public works budget for  1986.  "It's a highly political issue,"  Buchan said. "Something has  to be done and the matter is one  which council will have to wrestle with."  At the planning meeting  Alderman. John Burnside  pointed out that a major expenditure of some quarter million  dollars will be spent for water-  pipes to improve the water service to the top of the town, a  project in which all taxpayers  will participate. The improved  water service will cause insurance rates to go down and  provide better fire protection.  Buchan agreed with this but  added that it would be desirable  if some moneys could be spent  on rejuvenation above the  ground as well.  "Everyone's seen what's hap-  penned downtown," he added.  "We're in the preliminary  budget stage now so we'll have  to wait and see."  Public Works Superintendent  Ron Webber is on a short vacation and was not available for  comment on what projects he  may have in mind for the uptown area.  on. i_rr\r  _&      I  o^S..

Quoting the Vancouver  f4sland Mayors' Plan, which  calls silviculture "an idea whose  Stime has come", Joint Labour  ^Council spokesman Hans Pender added that 415 jobs would  j&e created it the wood cut under  j-X&K's timber licences here was  ^processed into lumber on the  ^Sunshine Coast.  i Also speaking in favour of  'silviculture was Gilbert Joe of  the Sechelt Indian Band. "My  brothers and I have logged  every mountain around here  since 1947," he said. "I still see  them bare today, just the way  we left them."  "I think we're heading in the  same direction, maybe just taking different paths," responded  SCRD Chairman Jim Gurney.  He referred the resolution to the  Community Development  Committee to be further  developed and "polished" to be  consistent with the powers and  authority of the regional board,  so that body could respond to  it.  In subsequent conversation  with Solidarity Coalition President Doris Fuller, the Coast  News asked about recent accusations that the Peoples'  Economic Strategy, prepared by  Solidarity and the Joint Council  of Local Unions, was "anti-  tourism and anti-aquaculture."  "We have never made a  statement that we're against  tourism or aquaculture," stated  Mrs. Fuller. "Both are  necessary and welcome. But  they don't hire large numbers of  people or pay very high salaries.  We want something that produces long-term jobs, can put  large numbers of people back to  work, and pays wages high  enough that people can spend  and keep the economy of the  community healthy.  "Any industry on the coast is  important," she continued.  "We welcome anything that brings in dollars and hires people.  Tourism and aquaculture are  just not our number one priority, because they won't hire the  numbers of people we see  necessary for a viable economy  on the coast. They won't  replace the cash flow that's being lost from the mill."  SU  peace group  ��T "New Zealand reached it present (Nuclear Free Zone) stance  fby towns and villages declaring  ! themselves Nuclear Free Zones  j until there were 60 per cent who  ; felt the same way. That's how  j one country changed its posi-  ; tion and it seems that the local  ! way is the only way it's been  j possible anywhere," said Direc-  ; tor John Burnside speaking in  \favour of a recommendation to  send an ambassador from the  Sunshine Coast Regional  ^District   (SCRD)   to   an   up-  ���\ coming Canadian Alliance for  j Peace in Toronto.  ;��    The'SCRD Finance Commit-  itee, at a meeting last Thursday,  voted to put aside $200 to send  , the representative, not yet nam-  'i ed. In a referendum held on the  question of nuclear disarmament last year, 80 per cent voted  in favour of the Sunshine Coast  being declared a Nuclear Free  Zone and a sign to that effect  now stands on Highway 101,  close the the Langdale ferry terminal.  Director Joyce Kolibas, while  declaring herself personally in  favour of peace and nuclear  disarmament, voted against the  recommendation, saying that  she felt uneasy about voting to  spend taxpayers' money on the  cause lest other groups also approach the SCRD for funding.  Chairman Jim Gurney defended the decision: "We did have  a referendum, and that's our  mandate; the courts have ruled  that bodies such as ours may  make representation to higher  levels of government on .any  issue, and we are not giving out  grants, but sending art ambassador on our behalf."  "Nothing could be more important," added Director Brett  McGillivray who told the  meeting of a computer survey  carried out at Expo, beneath the  Omnimax Theatre, where only  30 per cent of the children who  answered a question about the  future actually believed that  there was a future for them and  the world.  Director Jon McRae summed  it up: "It's a grass roots situation: if we don't tell the people  at the top, who's going to?"  Continued from page 1  $100,000 or 50 per cent of eligible costs (capital expenditures).  An incentive program for small  manufacturers will make three-  year, interest free loans for up  to $50,000 of eligible costs. The  ministry will also help the industry with marketing support.  The provincial export development corporation will insure  90 per cent of an operation's export receivables. They are also  now providing a credit report  service on potential foreign  customers.  The ministry of agriculture,  under the Agriculture Credit  Act can guarantee 25 per cent of  bank loans to the aquaculture  industry at a rate of one per cent  over prime.  According to Stan Combs, a  Farm Credit Analyst with the  Ministry of Agriculture, the  program has been used in  aquaculture. Since 1979, the  ministry has guaranteed just  over one million dollars in  aquaculture loans. In that time,  the ministry has had to pay out  $278,000 to banks under those  guarantees for loans that have  gone bad.  Combs said that the banks  have become reluctant to use  the program, because the 25 per  cent guarantee figure has not  given them enough protection.  In order to help make the program work for aquaculture, a  meeting with the banks has been  scheduled in order to work out a  compromise.  Both the AIP loans and the  Agricultural Credit Act  guarantees were also criticized  for not providing working  capital funds for feed and  wages, an important consideration because a new fish farm going into business will not  generate revenue from selling its  fish for two to three years.  The provincial government is  . also offering a 30 per cent provincial tax credit for investors  who invest in aquaculture  through the Small Business  Venture Capital Program.  And as was announced last  month, the provincial government, through the Ministry of  Education, has given a $100,000  grant to Capilano and Malaspina^ G011e|es i to establish  Pacific Aquaculture Centres in  Sechelt and Nanaimo.  Finally, the provincial  government has given the Sunshine Coast Tourism Association a $150,000 grant to coordinate Aqua-West '86, an Expo related tourism and  aquaculture promotion for next  summer. See the Aqua-West '86  story elsewhere in this  newspaper.  George Hunter, the aquaculture co-ordinator for the  Department of Fisheries and  Oceans spoke about federal  support.  Though the department has  announced its intention to back  out of the bulk supply of  salmon eggs, they have commit-  9  :  inister says  'wait til Spring'  ���i  ���i  <i  it  i;  <t  H  Continued from page 1  much friction within the tiny  island community, Heinrich  said that he realized the problem was festering.  "I've got petitions this long  from both sides," he said.  "From what I hear today 1  think it's me who's going to  make the decision, but it won't  be until July 1, 1986.", The  dispute concerns Bowen  Island's membership in SD46;  opinion is divided almost fifty-  fifty, with one side favouring  staying in SD46 and the other  favouring joining the West Vancouver School District.  After lunch, teachers and  parents were able to present  briefs to the minister; all echoed  concerns which have been made  clear in the LTAS report - funding is seen as inadequate, the  schools are in dire need of  repair, education is seen as having a low government priority,  cuts in social services are placing  a strain on teachers who are  forced to deal with problems  usually under the auspices of  the ministry of human  resources, teacher morale is lagging, parents are generally  dissatisfied with and worried  about their children's education, the lack of local board  autonomy is seen as a real threat  to the education system, and  government spending on mega-  projects is perceived as a major  reason for lack of education  funding.  Heinrich accepted the briefs  with unflagging good humour,  insisting that education had top  priority with his government  and that things would change as  soon as the budget was brought  down and later when the new  School Act was created. He also  said that B.C. spends more than  any other province on education  taking income standards into  consideration. Heinrich emphatically denied that there  would be a spring election.  "I'm here to hear what the  public is saying," Heinrich said,  "My mission is to resolve some  of these issues."  The members of Gibsons Garden Club were busy again last week,  pulling out the glorious display of marigolds which has made  Pioneer Park such a showpiece all summer, and planting bulbs  which will brighten up the corner next spring. The Garden Club  members have the well-earned gratitude of the whole community  for their dedicated efforts which have made the historic heart of  Gibsons a stunning visual delight for residents and travellers alike.  ���Fran Burnside photo  -TT^C?

VON 2W0  STATISTICS FROM THE  OPEN SHELF  British Columbia Library  Trustees Association newsletter  is called The Open Door. The  September issue held some interesting statistics: The biggest  collection per head of population served? Well, Kemano topped the list of top ten (provincial average is two books) with  33 books; Roberts Creek was  sixth with nine books and  Sechelt public library was eighth  with eight books.  The keenest readers in 1984  (provincial average is 10 books),  saw Moyie come in tops with 29  books and Sechelt at third with  19 books!  When it came to local tax  support, which board managed  to get the most local tax support? (Average for the province  $15.76 per capita) Vancouver  led the list with $29.12 and the  rest were cities. We didn't come  in that list at all.  Sechelt Council began its  meeting last week with a moment of silence in memory of  former alderman Norm Burley.  "He was a very community-  minded person, and he will be  missed," said Mayor Joyce  Kolibas.  Council then went on to  discuss its downtown revitalization programme, consider a request from the Sunshine Coast  Peace Committee, issue two  proclamations, and express  amazement at the scope of the  aquaculture conference being  held in its town.  "I didn't realize the  magnitude of the thing," commented Mayor Kolibas who had  attended opening ceremonies  the previous night. "There were  over 300 people, from all over  the world. I felt badly that we  hadn't done more, like having a  'Welcome' sign over the street  like there was for the Writers'  Forge.  "It was just terrific," she  continued. "I talked to as many  of the delegates as I could, but I  felt someone should have been  there from council who knew  more about it than I did. I gave  out some of our Sechelt pins,  but I was overcome by the  number of people."  Alderman Bill Forman noted  that significant investments  from Scotland and Norway,  some of them as much as $5  million, were being made in  coastal fish farms.  REVITALIZATION  START-UP  Good news for Sechelt Council came in an announcement  from Minister of Municipal Affairs Bill Ritchie that "My staff  have been instructed to prepare  the $5,000 start up grant to  enable you to undertake a concept plan for the revitalization  of your downtown."  Prior to forwarding the  funds, the ministry needs to  know "1) How the funds will be  spent; and 2) The name of the  consulting firm you are considering hiring." The letter advised contacting ministry staff  for advice prior to hiring a consultant, and when he did so,  Village Clerk Malcolm Shanks  was given the names of three  firms which were recommend  ed, as "the ministry has found  that the consultant's initial concepts play a major role in the  success or failure of a project."  Mayor Kolibas expressed  concern whether the village had  to hire one of the firms recommended by the government, as  the letter had seemed to indicate  only that there were concepts  which had to be considered.  Alderman Forman thought it  would be "good to get someone  from outside our village" who  could take a "fresh look" at the.  place and offer some "new  ideas". Alderman Ken Short  observed that, "Local people  don't want to be automatically  excluded" from being considered for the project just  because they are local, and  council concurred.  Alderman Forman was  selected as Sechelt's representative on a Downtown Revitalization Committee which will  also include members of the  Sechelt and District Chamber of  Commerce and the Sechelt  Downtown Merchants'  Association.  Designated at the Downtown  Revitalization area is Hwy 101  from the Indian Band Road to  Wharf Road, along Wharf to  the Cenotaph; along Cowrie to  Trail Avenue; and Inlet Avenue  from Teredo to Dolphin.  PEACE COMMITTEE  REQUEST  A petition from Lynn Chapman of the Sunshine Coast  Peace Committee requested  $150 "or any assistance council  could give" to help send one  delegate and two observers to  the founding convention of  Canada's first national peace  movement, the Canadian  Alliance for Peace, to be held in  Toronto, November 8 to 11.  "We feel strongly that the  Sunshine Coast should be well  represented in this important  and vitally necessary  endeavour," Chapman's  presentation stated, "...we are  seeking your financial, as well  as moral, support."  Ms Chapman suggested that  the purpose and objective of the  alliance would be to lobby  governments and co-ordinate  peace efforts across Canada,  especially to ensure that "cross-  Canada communication is  possible in the peace  movement."  We're dealing with taxpayers'  money here," responded Alderman Ken Short. "You may be  representing some, but some  may not be that interested in  your group. We have to represent the majority of opinions."  Dealing with peace issues "is,  not   the   place   of  municipal  government,  Forman.  The matter was referred  the finance committee.       .  PROCLAMATIONS  Proclamations were issiK  declaring the week beginnir  October 20 "Businel  Womens's Week", and t|  week of October 21 to 26 j  "Support Public Educatk  Week".

They are asking for $1  donations for fireworks from  families in the area. Just send  your money to the school or  phone Joan Graham, 885-3436  to arrange a pick up.  Susan These, president of the  PAG, asks everyone to save  their Shop Easy and Super Valu  receipts. Turn these in to the  school and for every $5,000 of  receipts, a $20 food voucher is  issued. This will be used to help  pay for the turkey dinner given  for the children before the  holidays.  The PAG is also selling raffle  tickets, three for $1, to be  drawn at the Hawaiian Hustle  dance, November 30. The prize  is a Texas Mickey or $100 cash.  Stewart Hercus, principal of  the school, says the greenhouse  on the grounds, which was vandalized some time ago, is being  rebuilt now. Also the 36 page  year book, covering the 84/85  school year will be available  soon for about $9.95.  School photos will be taken  on October 22 so wear your best  smile that day.

Eight of  us made the trip from Sechelt,  whilst five came down from  Powell River and there were six  members from Madeira Park.  The ladies from Madeira  Park refreshed us shortly after  our arrival with a very tasty luncheon. The delegates represented from Sechelt 769  members, from Powell River  380 and from Madeira Park 40,  which is a lot of people interested in the well-being of  their fellows.

It has received  praise from educators, government agencies and fish farmers  alike.  The training of qualified fish  and shell fish farm workers is  vital in fulfilling the employment needs of the expanding  aquaculture industry in B.C. Of  the 29 graduating students from  the first class this spring, all but  a few are now either employed  in the industry, or have gone on  to further their education in the  field.  North Island College had  been asked to create an  aquaculture training program to  retrain people in their area to  qualify for work in the  aquaculture industry. Fish  farmers on Vancouver Island  who had experience with Continuing Education's students asked that the same program be installed there. Funding is being  supplied by a federal MILAP  grant.  This fall's aquaculture training programs at both Continuing Education and North Island  College will be taught on an  alternating basis. While one set  of students is receiving  classroom instruction, the other  will be receiving on-site work  experience.  According to Van Arsdell,  pre-registration for Continuing  Education's fall course is  already over booked.

passed away in New
Westminster. He was 80 years
of age and is survived by his
wife Alice, a daughter Janet and
two grandchildren.
The family took up residence
in the Redrooffs area in the early sixties when Bill retired from
the New Westminster police
force. Both Bill and Alice were
very active in community affairs
and worked very hard with the
Welcome Beach Community
Association where Bill became
well known for his ability to
play host and MC at many
social events at the hall. He was
enjoyed for his clear resonant
voice and when Bill called
numbers at bingo games he
never had to repeat them.
All of us who knew Bill will
remember him fondly as a good
friend and neighbour, always
willing to lend a hand where
needed. Our thoughts go out at
this time to Alice and family,
and may they find some comfort in the knowledge that Bill
was very much loved and
respected in this area.
Funeral service took place at
New Westminster on Saturday.
The library at Welcome

to be limited, so it would be a
good idea to get yours right
away from both book shops,
Strings 'n Things or Sechelt
Carpet Corner. This is a one
time only show and will be
another good one.
A couple of dates to mark on
your calendar for early
November. The Welcome
Beach Community Association
are having a "Pub Night" on
Friday, November 1. This
should be a good old sing-along
evening with Paul Hansen playing the accordion, so there will
be no loud music or racket to
bother any of the neighbours.
Come along and join the fun.
Then on November 16 there will
be a Little Reno fun night.
The Halfmoon Bay Brownie
pack are in need of Brownie
dresses and accessories. If your
little girl has passed the Brownie
stage and still has a uniform she
doesn't use would you please
contact Betty Cocking at
885-2669. Betty now has about
20 Brownies in her pack,
therefore uniforms are much
A few more adults interested
in tap dancing are required in
order to make this course possible. You can get a good
workout along with some dancing fun with this group. Midge
is the one to call at 885-3380 for
further information.
Pender High School news
by Michelle Cochet
This year, due to a lack o(
pre-planned events by the student's council, the staff have arranged a number of activities
which will take place in our
X-blocks if they are not already
t occupied.
For those of you who do not
know, an X-block is a one hour
period after lunch on Thursdays
which can be used for various
student council events, such as
If the council does not book
this block for themselves, the
students will participate in a
variety of different activities,
such as speedball, badminton,
arts and crafts, weight lifting,
and the annual club, to name a
few. These events were chosen
by the students last week.
These activities have gone
over well with the students so
far, and should continue to do
so for the duration of the trial
10 week period.
The first steps are being taken
towards the formation of our
85/86 P.H.S.S. school annual.
Last week, letters were sent out
to all prospective businesses in
the hopes that they will sponsor
a "page, a half a^page, or even a
quarter of a page and bring
down our cost of production.
Any donations would be greatly
appreciated, and they would en
sure  a  good   record  of  this
school year.
So when you receive your letter^ or" if you're" feeling particularly generous, please send
in your contribution to the
school. The cost to sponsor a
page is $35. Thank you.

Welcome CagCoU»ct
Canada World Youth launched its 1986 recruitment campaign with the news that 800
young people will be participating in this year's youth
exchange programmes.
CWY, funded in part by the
Canadian International
Development Agency (CIDA) is
now in its fifteenth consecutive
year for exchanges. Young people between the ages of 17 and
20 years are offered a unique experience in learning about
development and cross cultural
communication both in Canada
and a developing country.
These young Canadians will
be joined by an equal number
of participants from a Third
World country in Asia, Africa
or Latin America. They will
spend seven months living and
working in vastly different
cultures and communities.
Small teams of participants,
each with a Canadian and exchange country group leader,
integrate themselves into communities, first in Canada then
overseas, through volunteer
work in fields such as
agriculture, co-operatives,
social services, small businesses,
recreation and community
All costs during the programme (food, lodging and
transportation) are covered by
Canada World Youth. Even
some pocket money is provided.
Canada World Youth's first
programme starts in May/June
and the second in August/-
September. Deadline for applications for both programmes
is January 15, 1986. Application forms and more information are available at schools,
Manpower Centres, and the
B.C. Regional Canada World

Coast News, October 21,1985  Community Development Officer Irene Lugsdin will now be  available to answer your questions and help with your plans every  Wednesday morning from 9 a.m. until noon at the Gibsons Tourist  Information booth in Pioneer Park - except this Wednesday when  she's attending a conference of the Professional Economists of  B.C., and the first Wednesday of each month when she attends the  Gibsons Planning meeting. ���Fran Burnside photo  George    in    Gibsons  Auxiliary name change  by George Cooper, 886-8520  The Port Mellon branch of  the St. Mary's Hospital Auxiliary has been an active  group since its organization in  1964.  "Next January," says a  spokesman, "we are changing  our name to the Hopkins  branch of the auxiliary, since all  our members, and that includes  Gladys Booth a charter member  from 1964, live in Hopkins,  Langdale or Soames."  "We meet every third  Wednesday at 1:30 p.m. in  Camp Sunrise, that's the Salvation Army camp, next to the  ferry terminal." the spokesman  said, "and we welcome new  members who would like to join  us in this public service. You  can phone Helen Milburn at  886-7768 to inquire or join us at  our meeting."  And take note that the  branch will hold its Christmas  sale of crafts and baking on Friday, November 16 from 10 a.m.  to 6 p.m. Mark this day on your  calendar.  50th ANNIVERSARY  Retired Elphinstone teacher  Stan Bryant and wife Amy  marked their fiftieth wedding  anniversary on August 21 with  friends and family in their West  Sechelt home.  On the afternoon of August  21 the Bryants were at home to  nearby friends and in the evening hosts at dinner in the Wharf  Restaurant to friends who had  travelled from California,  Alberta and from points in B.C.  ���Penticton, Nakusp, and Vancouver Island.  Daughter Christine Baird and  family joined her parents for  their anniversary and son Don,  in England, was able to visit  with  his   parents  when  they  "We've  Sechelt  travelled overseas in September.  In England the Bryants  visited Bournemouth where  they were married in 1935, and  Worbarrow Bay where they  spent their honeymoon  named our home in  "Worbarrow" just to remind  us," said Stan.  The Bryants came to Canada  in 1952 and have lived in  Medicine Hat, Kimberley,  Nakusp, and the Sunshine  Coast. "Although I was  primarily an Industrial Arts  teacher," said Stan. "I've done  most of the general subjects in  maths and science at one time or  another. And in the days of the  large classes, too."  Stan joined Elphie staff in  1965 and retired just after the  end of the first semester in 1970.  "Been busy ever sinceywith  woodwork hobbies���inlay and  clocks���and we both garden."  And Amy added, "We have enjoyed many a winter in Mexico.  OOPS  Due to a severe lack of space  in last week's paper, some  details were omitted from  coverage of the recent wedding  of Denis Hostland and Mickie  Armstrong.  Neglected were the matron of  honour, Mrs. Loretta Macklam  of Gibsons, and the brides  father, Roy Armstrong.  The flower girl was Russet  Turlock and the bridesmaids  were Deanna Armstrong and  Tracy Hostland. The organist  was Ken Dalgleish. The bride's  mother, Sharron Turlock of  Gibsons, as well as friends and  relatives from as far afield as  California and Yellowknife  were among the guests.  After the reception held in the  Gibsons Legion Hall the bride  and groom travelled to Palm  Springs on their honeymoon.  Chamber laments job loss  The Gibsons and District  Chamber of Commerce has  written to Tom Waterland,  Minister of Forestry, protesting  the sale of L&K Lumber  Limited.  In a conversation with the  Coast News chamber manager,  Verna Sim, said that the sale, to  Terminal Sawmills, would see  the wood taken from the Sunshine Coast area to the Fraser  River for milling.  Although the booming will  still take place on the L&K site,  the dry-land sort will not be  operative, at least to begin with,  and the mill will not be used.  "If the mill were operating at  full capacity it would employ  Over 400 people," Sim said.  "This sale takes away that  possibility.  "We have people that need  employment. As a town we feel  that this sort of thing should be  left here. The facilities are there;  we should be turning out a  finished product instead of sending our wood somewhere  else," she continued.  A copy of the chamber's letter was received by Gibsons  Council and it was decided that  a letter would be sent to the  minister, asking him to take a  second look and supporting the  chamber's cry that jobs are  needed here.  Police news of week  On October 15 the body of a  man was recovered from Hotel  Lake by the Sechelt Detachment  of the RCMP. He was identified as Arthur Lee Christian  who has been missing since  August 25. The probable cause  of death as determined by  autopsy was drowning.  The  victim's   parents   have  been advised by the RCMP.  GIBSONS RCMP  The theft of $460 worth of  prawn traps from the Westbay  area of Gambier Island was  reported on October 6. A quan  tity of rope and a large float  marked with the name "Blue  Moon" were also taken.  SECHELT RCMP  Suspects smashed a window  of the Sechelt Liquor Store with  a rock on October 5. No entry  into the store was gained.  Vandalism which took place  during the last weekend in  September was reported from  Chatelech Secondary School  this week.

Doc Fingers was a pleasure to  behold with his too large for his  glasses head bobbing around  behind his keyboards to the  rhythms of the delightful sep-  cialty numbers he performed.  He draws material from obscure  and esoteric blues musicians  such as "Professor Longhair"  and expresses versatility by including numbers such as Elvis  Costello's "Allison" in his format. It is his obvious perception  of excellence in diverse styles of  music which, to this observer,  makes the man such a commanding entertainer.  Dennis Burke held pace on  the drums, Elmar Spannier  (from Billy Cowsill's band)  negotiated the acoustic "stand-  up" bass, and ex-Harlequin  Lawrie Koyle piloted the electric  guitar.  The man we have to thank  for bringing us the show is blues  harmonica soloist Butch Colter,  who also performed with the  Baldry entourage  There was even a generally  un-heralded appearance, on Friday evening, by veteran Vancouver guitarist Jerry Doucette,  who just seemed to come out of  the walls and burn the frets off  Koyle's guitar, before submerging again.

This acrophobia was firmly established  during my early 20's by several  truly horrifying small plane  flights to various remote logging  camps and a nasty experience  up a spar-tree that I still shudder  to think about. Despite a few  reluctant jet flights, my incapacity to deal with high places  has not appreciably lessened  over the years.  This aversion to lofty,  dangerous situations has led me  to covertly admire those fortunate souls who are not saddled with the same affliction. My  secret heroes include: astronauts, high-wire artists, high-  steel workers, high riggers, stunt  men, hot-air balloonists, flagpole sitters, test pilots and the  guys who wash the windows on  tall buildings. A few years ago,  I was obliged to add a new  group of daredevils to this dizzy  list -those dauntless human  eagles known as hang-glider  pilots.  Hang-gliding may be the  closest man will ever come to  emulating the birds. It evolved  on the Perth River in Australia  about 15 years ago, from large,  man-bearing kites that were  towed behind speedboats.  Presumably, the tow-rope  broke one day and a whole new  sport was born.  The first hang-gliders were  crude, homemade affairs of  cloth and bamboo, not especially reliable in stress situations  and tricky air conditions. As a  result, there were a good many  accidents in the early days of the  sport. Things improved rapidly  however as the hang-gliding  craze spread, first to California  and then, around the world.  Better kites were soon developed, employing space-age  materials and technology and  the strong, safe, high-tech  gliders of today are a far cry  from the first, primitive models.  B.C. quickly became a relative hot-bed of hang-gliding activity, much of it centering  around Grouse Mountain on  the North Shore. Grouse is  renowned among glider pilots,  the world over, for its good  thermals and easy accessibility.  For the past few years, the  World Hang-Gliding Meet has  been held at this location.  Yvonne and I had our first  close-up glimpse of the Grouse  Mountain sky-riders, one summer afternoon in 1983. We  drove up to Cleveland Park and  watched them return to earth  from their giddy activities. They  came swooping in over the  housetops like real-life super  heroes to touch down lightly in  the small field. I was impressed  enough to write a poem:  To be continued  Hang-gliders  over Grouse  Mountain  They are swimming in the wind  a dozen flecks of brilliance  eagling the high blue  vaulting above the mountain scarp  lords of the afternoon  princes of giddy silence  prostrated against infinity  kites that have broken their strings.  They have gathered from many places  to challenge these heights .  to relearn the language of clouds  in the provinces of the hawk  to test their mettle  against the vagrant, currents  to loft from green ramparts  and drift in the towering sky.  One by one  they will circle down from nirvana  swoop in over the field  land like great running birds  They speak a strange new language  alien to the earthbound  They are the children of Icarus  but the sun will not melt their wings.  Peter Trower  Chamber plans photo  for postcard contest  A suggestion has been made  that there are no nice postcards  of Gibsons available for tourists  and why shouldn't the chamber  of commerce have a photo contest and use the winning photc  or photos for a postcard.  We have since had a donation  of money from the Gibsons  Garden Club as a prize. More  details on prizes later.  One suggestion for the contest is pictures of Pioneer Park  with the new tourist centre and  beautiful flowers, possibly with  Molly's Reach in the background.  Rules for the contest are quite  simple. We will pick a panel of  judges. Deadline for entries will  be November 8. Anybody can  enter except for directors, officers or employees of the  chamber and their families, and  the judges and their families.  The chamber will retain the  rights to the photo and  negative. Your entry does not  have to be a picture taken after  the announcement of this contest.

With his help and  expertise we started the  Elphinstone Scottish Country  Dancing Club of the Sunshine  Coast in January 1984.  Since then, we have had three  seasons and are now into our  fourth.   We   have   had   two  workshops with two guest  teachers, who have been impressed with the quality of our  group and have fallen in love  with the area.

I  One of the most reliable  and satisfying eating places  on the Sunshine Coast is the  undeservedly unsung Homestead Restaurant at the junction of Field Road and  Highway 101 in Wilson  Creek.  Last week we planned a  modest evening of dining  and dancing and chose the  Homestead for dinner, just  five minutes from the  Roberts Creek Legion where  Ken Dalgleish and Bob  Carpenter were supplying the  music.  We found ourselves virtually the only customers in  the small but attractive  Homestead dining room.  The clean but unpretentious  decor is beautifuly enhanced  by some of the finest hanging  baskets of plants I can  remember seeing in one  place.  The service was prompt  and of that unforced friendliness which tends to make  for regular and repeat  customers.  The menu offered a pleasing and substantial variety.  The appetizers offered a  choice of deep fried zucchini,  shrimp cocktail, sauteed  scallops and chicken fingers,  all in the $2 - $4.95 price  range. My companion decided to limit herself to a  generous helping from the  first class salad bar and,  while I too helped myself  generously from the complementary salad offerings, I  opted for a bowl of the hearty beef and barley tomato  soup since I was the happy  possessor of a considerable  appetite.  The main courses offered  a variety of meat dinners in  cluding steak and prawns, at  $12.50, chicken cordon bleu  at $12.95; chicken dinner at  $8.50; and veal cutlets for  $9.95.  The seafood selection included trout, a seafood platter, deepfried scallops, fish  and chips. The very attractive special was deep fried  prawns for just $11.50.  I chose the meat special, a  very tender prime rib cut  with one of the most mouthwatering baked potatoes it  has been my pleasure to  meet. At $10.95 it was both  hearty and delightfully tasty  and a bargain.  My companion chose the  veal cutlets, also with a  magnificent baked potato,  and pronounced then very  tender and tasty.  We enjoyed the decent  house red wine, though in  truth the selection was not  extensive.  The dessert list offered  Black Forest cake, butter  tarts, cheesecake, assorted  pies, sundaes, and banana  splits but our depredations  on the salad bar, my bowl of  soup, and the handsome portions of the main courses left  us unable to sample these  delights.  Also on the menu were  seven varieties of hamburgers, reasonably priced,  eleven different sandwich  selections in the $2.75 - $5.95  range and five different  pyrogie selections priced attractively around $9.  Our bill amounted to less  than $30 and we went on to  the dancing well fortified  with the Homestead's hearty  and tasty fare. Try it for '  good eating at reasonable  cost.

He has also been on  the demonstration team used  for teachers qualifying for their  certificates. He has taken  "Highland" dancing , to improve the quality of his dancing  and, by popular demand, is  now teaching it.  Don has many other talents.  Besides being a beautiful  dancer, he is an accomplished  piper and can turn his hand to  anything. This includes sewing  his own "Bonnie-Prince-  Charlie", a Highland jacket;  making a needlepoint sporran;  and hand sewing four of his  kilts.  This fall he has started an intermediate class of Scottish  Country Dancing in Sechelt and  with good results so far.  All this Don Cadenhead has  done with no other reward than  seeing his dancers doing their  best. And their best is what they  are striving to give him.

Undercover reviews  I- Cycling Guide  by Betty and  Perry Keller  ; Bicycling Southwestern  ; British Columbia and the Sun-  ��� shine Coast by Simon Priest  ! with maps by Kimberley Klint;  i Douglas and Mclntyre.  ! ; With this glorious autumn  ! weather upon us, there's still  ! time to get out the old bicycle  i^nd explore the byways of the  lljower mainland and our own  ! beautiful Sunshine Coast, and  It'he pedalling half of this review-  ling team has found a hand  ', guide for this pastime: Bicycling  | Southwestern British Columbia  land the Sunshine Coast. Its first  ! fifty pages are the most in-  ; (cresting because these cover the  ; bicycle routes from Langdale to  ;Lund, but those who would  ]venture beyond these favoured  |shores can pedal their way as  'far as Hope, Mission, Whistler  land Pemberton with the aid of  Ithis book. Il is well bound with  ia sturdy cover and it is printed  Ion extra heavy stock - jusi the  Ikind ol* book to tuck into your  day pack or bike carrier and not  worry about it disintegrating on  your third outing. The maps are  well-drawn  with symbols that  can provide necessary information even in the brief glances  that    busy   traffic   conditions  allow. Hazards are indicated by  a   rating   system    that   gives  specific  mention   to  problems  such as narrow roads; however,  actual traffic conditions where  extra caution should be practiced are not specifically mentioned.  The writer's intention seems  to have been the provision of a  guide to routes that would link  up with one another. This is  great for the ibiker out for a  week's adventure, but often  leaves the day-tripper with the  problem of finding his own  route home or re-tracing the  route he has just pedalled over.  A few more round-trip one-day  routes would have added a  useful dimension to the book,  but on the whole it is the best of  its kind to come on the market  in recent years.  _3L-Ebbi  3-S  Saturday, October 19 was  V-Day for Gibsons third and  fourth division rugby sides.  The opener saw the Piglets  take on the Vancouver Scribes  who are presently in first place  in the VRU fourth division.  In a defensive battle Gibsons  fourths played aggressive rugby  against a team of experienced  players. Scoring first for Gibsons was scrum-half Dave  Macleod from a 25 yard field  goal.  It wasn't until late in the second half that break forward  Bob Corbett fought his way  through three Scribes to score  his first try of the year. Final  score was 7-0. Are the piggies  rolling?  Third division met the  Rowers in an intense second  match. A name that appears  almost weekly in this sports column scored one of the prettiest  tries of the year. Freeman Smith  shot through half the Rowing  Club on his way to a 65 yard  scoring run. A very talented  young rugby player!  It was a three line afternoon  for the Gibsons thirds who provided   excellent   entertainment  for the 100 or so spectators. Inside centre Don Maedel scored  twice for the blue shirts. Heads  up play by skipper Dave Rainer  brought second phase rugby to  an alert Maedel who took advantage of the open field with  the wheels to score.  Rowers came back, scoring  twice and adding a field goal to  end the half tied at 11-11. For  what seemed like an eternity  and was indeed most of the second half, the Lowers and Gibsons remained in the centre of  the field scrumming and rucking. To finally break the ice,  wing forward Rick Godfrey  dove on a rolling ball in the  Reds' end zone, relieving the  tension of the tie.  Not long after centre Maedel  scored the final, eluding the  Rowers' three line with a cut  between the uprights.  This was a great double victory for the hometown club.  Next weekend will draw the  second double header of the  half, when Gibsons entertains  North Shore Capilanos in  fourth division, and Vancouver  Kats in the third division. Kats  beat Gibsons 6-3 earlier in the  Strikes & Spares  Don Slack got rolling last  week with a 301 single and a 948  four game total in the Classic  League and a 311 single and 729  triple in the Gibsons 'A'  League.  In the Tues. Coffee League  Mona Anderson rolled a 337  single and a 689 triple and in the  Phuntastique League Petra  Nelson rolled a 321 single and a  661 triple, Pat Prest a 321 single  and a 727 triple and Jim  Gilchrist a 300 single and a 726  triple.

"Unfortunately this is  all too common an  occurrence," said Gordon  Wilson, the current president of  the society.  The net result of this will be  the dropping of the proposed  play The Clone People, and a  selection of another play that  features more women and less  men. "It really limits what we  can do well," said Wilson, "But  we will be holding another  reading this Friday at 7:30 p.m.  at the Arts Centre in Sechelt, to  see what we can come up with."  As this puts the date for performance back a week, Wilson  suggested that the play that is  done may well have a Christmas  theme.

In an off-Coast game at  Jericho Beach, the third division  side annihilated the UBC Old  Boys 34-0 in a game which saw  veteran prop Brent Lineker  break a seven year dry spell with  a remarkable number two play  in which Lineker blasted  through the middle for the  score.

Coast News, October 21,1985  Savings of nearly $1 million estimated  "A very encouraging situation," was the consensus of opinion after a joint Gibsons  Council and Sunshine Coast  Regional District (SCRD)  meeting held last Wednesday at  the Gibsons Council Chamber  where discussions began on a  joint venture which would see  the Reed and Henry reservoir  upgraded and a 10-inch water  main brought along Highway  101 as far as the Twilight  Theatre.  Dayton and Knight, who are  consulting engineers for both  the Town of Gibsons and the  SCRD, estimate that the savings  of the joint effort to Sunshine  Coast taxpayers over the next  ten yers could amount to over  $900,000.  Agris Berzins, of Dayton and  Knight, consulting engineers for  both the SCRD and Gibsons,  explained that the SCRD is  short of a big reservoir in the  Gibsons Heights area and that  there is also a shortage of  pipeline from the reservoir into  the Gibsons area.  "You are not desperately  short, but you must be able to  look forward to growth," Berzins said. "Gibsons is not short  of reservoir capacity but the  kind it has is not exactly the  type that a modern growing  area needs to supply safe  water."  Berzins said that the reservoir  should be lined and eventually  covered; it was also pointed out  that with the addition of a low  dividing wall the reservoir could  be cleaned without cutting  water supply.  The large pipeline out of the  reservoir is necessary to provide  the people of the area with  domestic water and fire protection. The pipes existing could be  amalgamated into one pipe and  with one reservoir there would  be no waste of funds to either  Gibsons or the SCRD, according to Berzins.  "Build something good for  both entities," Berzins said,  "and both parties would benefit  equally from the ability to protect business, residences and  schools against fire."  The costs entailed in such a  project are high, but Berzins  believes that if they are shared  in a mutually satisfactory way  between the SCRD and the  town, they can be cut and costs  to the tax payer for good water  reduced over the next several  years.  The cost of completion of the  section of 10-inch main from  Gibsons' boundary to the Reed  and Henry reservoir would be  $260,000 and the cost to  upgrade the reservoir would be  $255,000. This does not include  the cover for the reservoir which  will be added at a later date.  In a memorandum from  Dayton and Knight, dated May  15, 1985, cost projections for  the work necessary to upgrade  both the SCRD and Gibsons  water systems show that a joint  venture would reduce capital  costs by $665,000.  Pumping costs would also be  affected by such a joint venture;  in the Dayton and Knight memo  it is shown that these costs  would rise from $20,000 a year  in 1987 to $35,000 a year in  1997. Were there two independent water systems each would  have its own pumping costs, but  a joint project would save the  public approximately $250,000  Recycling  getting  mixed  response  by Val Silver  Over the last three recycling  weeks the recycling committee  has been able to gather information on volumes, participation,  and public response.  The volumes of recyclables  have increased dramatically. In  the second week of recycling the  volume of glass and paper  quadrupled in Area F. In a  recycling week five tons of  paper, 3.5 tons of glass and 1.5  tons of metals were collected.  The public response to recycling has been mixed. Although  the majority of people are in  favour of recycling there are  complaints about the present  program.  The main problems are that  sometimes recyclables are not  being collected and that weekly  garbage pick up is a necessity.  during the same period of time.  Lively and constructive  discussion followed Berzin's initial presentation.  "We realise we have to do  something in the next few  years," Chairman of the SCRD  and Area E Director Jim  Gurney stated. "Cedar Grove  School is our main problem; we  are short there for fire protection, although with the new  pump installed at the Leek  Road pumping station we will  be close to underwriters' capacity.  "I also intend to push for  work on a line along the  highway in the next year, and  strongly," he added.  Gurney went on to suggest  that it may be possible to take  the already budgeted $200,000  set aside for the SCRD Gray  Creek intake in 1987 to pay for  the reservoir work, with Gibsons paying off the balance by a  surcharge of some kind; this,  said Gurney, would keep the  borrowing off-coast to a  minimum and with it the large  interest payments, which are  one of the major costs in any  project where borrowing is required.  The Gray Creek intake is a  project which may be deferred,  according to Berzins, in light of  the extensive work being done  at the present time on the Chapman Creek intake.  The SCRD has already  budgeted for work on pipes and  Gurney pointed to the existing  sewer agreement with the  Sechelt Indian Band based on  purchase of capacity as an example of an agreement which  may be feasible in this instance.  Alderman Norm Peterson  said that he, as a councillor,  would not be prepared to sell  any part of the reservoir, but  that the purchase of capacity of  the reservoir by the SCRD and  of the pipeline by the town of  Gibsons would be acceptable.  Alderman John Burnside was  enthusiastic about the prospect  of being able to share costs with  the SCRD, especially with such  co-operation keeping off-coast  borrowing to a reasonable  minimum, and it was agreed  that the Gibsons Clerk-  treasurer, Lorraine Goddard  and the Secretary-treasurer of  the SCRD, Larry Jardine,  should work together to draw  up an agreement for furthes  discussion.  It is seen as a three year program, at the end of which time  it is hoped that there will be an  upgraded 2.4 million gallon  capacity reservoir and 10-inch  water mains in the Gibsons  Heights and Gibsons area with  increased fire protection and  better quality water for all  residents.
