Directors divided  The cyclists led off, followed by runners, walkers, one boy on crutches and a girl with her arm in a sling.  Over 100 people took part in Sunday's Terry Fox Run in Gibsons, some with pledge cards which will  raise over $300 each for the Canadian Cancer Society. ���Fran Burnside photo  Gibsons - SCRD  Co-operation urged  on wafer and waste  Waste management and  water were topics of discussion  at the September 12 Sunshine  Coast Regional District (SCRD)  board meeting. Director John  Burnside, representing the  Town of Gibsons, presented a  recently received Dayton and  Knight report on Gibsons'  water system and future cooperative work between the  SCRD and the town.  Engineers for both the SCRD  and Gibsons have pointed out  that if work is co-operatively  undertaken on an extension to  the Gibsons reservoir and a 10  inch line is taken along Henry  Road that a considerable sum of  money will be saved for the tax  payers. Burnside suggested that  preliminary negotiations be instituted, and also informed the  board that Gibsons has already  budgeted for work in that area.  Burnside went on to say that,  after reading extensively in the  newly completed West Howe  Sound Settlement Plan technical studies and other engineering reports dating from some 11  years previously, he was concerned at the present status of  the sewer and waste management in Area F.  The earliest report, a study  done by Dayton and Knight in  1974, draws attention to the environmental problem intrinsic in  the unsuitability of the soil in  the area for septic tanks or  package treatment plants.  "All these reports consistently recommend that in the long  run waste management should  be directed towards the Gibsons  treatment plant," Burnside  said. "The report in September  1978 points to problems with  sewage disposal in Hopkins and  Granthams; it says we should  build a line to the treatment  plants. These reports have never  been acted upon and the  seepage into the chuck is not  getting any better."  "I just don't want to run the  risk of playing politics with the  environment of the Sunshine  Coast," said Burnside,. "The  engineers couldn't be clearer  that the commonsense way to  go is towards Gibsons.  "Gibsons is authorised to  double the capacity of the  sewage treatment plant," Burnside said, "and we invite the cooperation of and meaningful  discussions with the SCRD."  Burnside also said that the  Waste Management Committee  of which he is a member along  with Alderman Graham Craig  of Sechelt and Chairman of the  SCRD, Jim Gurney, has yet to  meet although it has been in existence for some seven months.  Answering these charges  Gurney said that the reason the  committee has not met is  because the engineers' report  was being awaited.  "1 might point out also that  in 1980 it was the province that  said there would be no expansion of sewers outside municipalities. In other words, if we  wanted to expand Area F had to  incorporate."  Interviewed by the Coast  News, while helping to build  bleachers at Brothers Park on a  sunny Sunday morning, Gurney  expanded on his ideas about  waste management.  ���"I can see Granthams, for ex  ample, hooking into the Gibsons sewage treatment plant,"  Gurney continued. "That  makes sense. But I'm told by  Gordon Dixon (works  superintendent for the SCRD)  that the effluent quality at the  Langdale subdivision sewage  treatment plant is extremely  high; you could actually drink  it.  "And Area F has the highest  amount of ALR land in the  regional district," he added. "A  lot of that land is close to  Langdale; what I'm thinking is  that perhaps in the future the  treament plant that is already  there could be expanded to  serve Langdale and surrounding  area. The ALR land is very  suitable for tree farming, and  what better way to water it than  with water from the treatment  plant?"  Beach pollution  alarms Area E  The report of a posting of  "Contaminated for Swimming" at Chaster Creek at Bonniebrook Point caused considerable consternation at last  Wednesday's Elpinstone Electors' Association meeting, but  Chief Medical Health Officer  Jim Lugsdin feels there is minor  cause for concern.  "The creek has been tested as  mildly, not severely con-  laminated, but we're concerned  enough to post it and we don't  want children swimming in it,"  he said.  Health inspectors have not  yet been able to determine the  cause of the contamination, and  have traced it up the creek  beyond Coastal Tires.  "There are a number of  possible sources," said Lugsdin,  noting that the testing shows  contamination by fecal matter  of warm-blooded animals. "It  could be wildlife using the creek :  as a "dropping" place, or a  home with animals, ducks or  geese." Several homes along the  area already tested do not seem  to be a specific factor, nor has  work being done to upgrade the  sewer system of the Sunshine  Coast Trailer Park been  recognized as a cause.  Lugsdin noted that he would  be much more concerned if the  creek were a source of drinking  water, but for now all the health  office can do is continue testing  and post the creek.  "We do a beach sampling  program every summer,"  Lugsdin explained. "We test  those areas used by a number of  swimmers and public beaches.  The beach at Bonniebrook is  not contaminated, only the  creek. One of our staff saw  children playing in the creek  and decided to sample it, too."  The health office has been  testing to the provincial  choliform count standard of  200 'bugs' per 100 cc's of water.  With heavier rains now  beginning, the choliform count  will be diluted, and the stream  will probably cease to test as  contaminated, said Lugsdin.  More tests will be done in the  spring.  "But by then the situation  could have changed totally," he  added.  All of the other beach areas  sampled along the Sunshine  Coast gave acceptable readings.  "This is the only posting there  has been on the Sunshine Coast  in the last three years," concluded Lugsdin, noting that the  water shortage this summer ob-  viouslv affected the situation.  SCRD debates  economic report  . It was a stormy discussion at  the Sunshine Coast Regional  District (SCRD) board meeting  on September 12, when Director  Ian Vaughan made a motion to  receive the Solidarity and Trade  Unions Economic Strategy for  the Sunshine Coast. His motion  did not in any way endorse the  report and did point out clearly  that the SCRD had in no way  commissioned the report.  "I am very appreciative of  the time and effort put into it,"  Vaughan said, addressing his  motion, "this (the motion) has  to be done to clear the air with  the lunatic fringe which seems  to think that we are adopting  the report as our own, and did  in some way commission it to be  done.  "I believe it should be there  as a reference," he continued,  "it is one of many we've received; it's not the only answer, but  if we combine all the reports  we'll get a comprehensive  view."  Vaughan's motion aroused  some strong feelings both pro  and con, as did Director Brett  McGillivray's move to have the  board accept the report in principle.  McGillivray said that "I have  no trouble accepting the report  in principle because I think the  Sunshine Coast had better be  willing to co-operate with all  aspects of job creation."  Director Jon McRae said that  he found a great deal of trouble  with the report because of its  political nature.  ...."Every political party could  form a strategy," McRae said,  "this is a strongly worded  political report, anti the present  government...some of it is very  good, but most of it is  unachievable. It's a definite  political statement. I wouldn't  want the board to adopt any  political ideas."  Director John Burnside said  that he thought 'receiving' the  report was a 'kind of shelving of  it' and Director John Shaske  said that accepting the report in  principle as McGillivray had  suggested did not mean that the  board accepted all the details ot  it but only the concepts contained therein.  As the discussions moved  along it became clear that both  Vaughan and McRae saw the  report more as a political statement than as an economic document.  "I have difficulty with the intent of the strategy," Vaughan  said, "I can't see anyone accepting a political paper that's aiming at the next election....All the  solutions in here are political in  nature. I just want to make it  available to all by having it  received, but not endorsed."  "This is socialism," said  McRae, "certain aspects of it  blend in with our views here but  I don't want to endorse it, it's  not this board's position."  Hans Penner, who was present to represent the Solidarity  Coalition, asked and was  granted leave to speak.  "The people who wrote this  report came from many political parties," he said. "All of  us agree that, the main problem  is unemployment. In this report  we studied the problem, identified its causes, and proposed  solutions. Some of those solutions are already working  elsewhere, as on Vancouver;  Island, where the Vancouver  Island mayors are involved in'a*  silviculture program."  "It's an act of cowardice not  to support this document in  some ways," said Burnside,  "it's not just this document that  tells us what's wrong. The Mac-  Donald report tells us that we,  whether the government or  private industry, have treated  our forests as though we've  been   mining   an   ore. body,.  After much argument  Vaughan's motion was reduced  to say that the board received  the report, and that it had not  commissioned the report in any  way. This motion was carried:  McGillivray then made a motion that the board support in  principle the concept of job  creation as written in the report.  At the vote, three directors,  Vaughan, McRae and Anne  Pressley of Sechelt, voted  against the motion, Director  Peggy Connor missed the vote  because she was still mulling it  over, and Directors Shaske,  McGillivray and Burnside voted  for the motion. Connor said  later that she supported the motion. l  Chairman of the board, Jim  Gurney, broke the tie by voting  in favour of the motion. "The  creation of jobs is such an important problem that I have no  reluctance to be seen talking to  any political party," he said.  Laughs and good spirits marked the Beachcombers 'Farewell till Spring '86' wine and cheese party,  hosted by the Gibsons and District Chamber of Commerce last Thursday night. Sampling the goodies  prepared by Margaret Kitson are, from left to right Chamber President Sheila Kitson, Manager Verna  Sim, Director and local business man Rich Mennie, Beachcomber star, Bruno Gerussi, local business  owner Ken Goddard and Beachcombers' 'Sara Jim', Charlene Aleck. ���Pat Tripp photo  Chamber marks most  successful summer  More than fifty people turned  out to the Gibsons and district  Chamber of Commerce's wine  and cheese party to salute the  finish of the Beachcomber's  television crew's shooting  season.  Merchants and members of  council mingled with the television people on what was, by all  reports, one of the friendliest  and most congenial evenings of  what has been for the Chamber  of Commerce a summer of  dynamic growth and considerable achievement.  "When I started working for  the chamber in January we had  just 39 members," said  chamber manager Verna Sim.  "This week the number of  members should reach 112."  Sim has worked closely with  Chamber President Sheila Kit-  son throughout the successful  membership drive.  The success of the Gibsons  Chamber in 1985 is to be  measured in ways additional to  increased membership, however.  Sim gives credit to the new  Gibsons marina and the convenient and attractive location of  the tourist's information booth  in Pioneer Park to the fact that  in July and August more than  5,000 requests for information  were handled at the Gibsons office.  "There's no two ways about  it," said Sim, "the new tourist  booth has made a tremendous  difference. People are stopping  for information right in the  middle of town and while they  are stopped they are walking  around town."  The increased tourism  facilitated by the marina is also  noted by Sim.  "I started going to work at 8  a.m. so that I could get  something done," said the  chamber manager, "and as  soon as I opened the door there  were people in there, most of  them coming from the marina."  Sim said that the new tourist  booth and the marina had made  Gibsons more than ever the  gateway to the Sunshine Coast.  According to the Chamber  manager, last week's successful  salute to the Beachcombers  marks the beginning of a more  active role for the chamber  within the community.  Coming up is what one  Chamber spokesman described  as a 'scintillating' dinner at Pro:  nto's Restaurant on Tuesday,  September 24, 7:30 p.m.  All local business people and  members of the public are invited to hear guest speakers Vic  Walker, chairman of the ExpOasis Committee, and Val  Robertson, publisher, bring us  up to date on their activities.  "Take advantage," says the  chamber spokesman, "of this  opportunity to meet with fellow  business people in a relaxed and  friendly atmosphere."  For information about the  dinner meeting or almost  anything else on the Sunshine  Coast, just call Chamber  Manager Verna Sim at 886-2325  or 886-3839. You can confirm  your intention to attend the dinner while chatting with Verna. 2.  Coast News, September 16,1985  i  I  for New Zealand  Three cheers for tiny New Zealand. No other government in the world has taken a braver, less equivocal stand  against the costly insanity of nuclear arms. To compare the  forthright statement of position that the New Zealand  government has taken with the hedging and equivocation  of Canadian governments since the day of John Diefen-  baker is to be embarassed by the timidity and lack of clarity of thought of our federal leadership whether Liberal or  Conservative.  In its earlier refusal to allow American nuclear ships to  dock in its harbour, New Zealand set a standard for commitment to the policies of peace which has been matched  nowhere in the world.  We are, after all, talking about a tiny isolated country  heavily dependent on world trade, a good portion of which  is with the United States of America.  More recently, with its dogged opposition to French atmospheric testing in the South Pacific it is again setting a  much needed standard for non-belligerent international  straight talking.  In a world in which the proliferation of the monstrous  weapons of mass destruction is as of a gathering darkness,  the New Zealanders and their intrepid government have  surely lit one small candle of hope and honesty. We say,  well done! Would that we had such a government.  Congratulations  The wedding of Dawn Hope and Peter Fulton on Saturday aboard a yacht in Vancouver Harbour enabled us to  delight in the glories of the Vancouver setting from a  perspective all to infrequently enjoyed.  The happy occasion which gave rise to the opportunity  -she is the daughter of Brad and June Hope of Tidal Rush  Marine Farms - may also be an appropriate opportunity to  pay tribute to this most successful of local fish farming  stories.  The Hopes have, in the past eight years taken their  dream of being fish farmers to the point where they are  now heading a company about to be traded on the international market from Hong Kong to London. They have  done so with integrity and without offending any of their  neighbours.  We salute them on the happy occasion of their  daughter's wedding.  John Burnside  from Uw ��!����� of the COAST NEWS  5 YEARS AGO  Regional Director Joe Harrison and Alternate Director Homer Glass have been appointed co-chairmen of a  committee to look into problems caused by an upsurge  in the numbers of people applying for foreshore leases  in the SCRD.  In the past week three sheep and two goats have  been killed by bears in the vicinity of Gibsons. As a  result of this, the conservation officer found it necessary to trap and destroy the two bears responsible.  10 YEARS AGO  Sechelt School District announced that it would be  hiring up to five new teachers because of unexpectedly  high enrolments in local schools.  The Sunshine Coast received an $18,000 oil-spill containment package including tools, 500 feet of flotation  booms for containing spills, a land port-a-tank for containing land spills and a combustible gas detector.  15 YEARS AGO  A non-refundable 50 cent charge above the 50 cent  pupil locker fee at Elphinstone School this year put into  effect by Principal T.G. Eliwood, has been suspended  while its validity is looked into.  20 YEARS AGO  The Sunshine Coast Tourist Association complained  of rowdyism in the Pender Harbour area and stated that  fines for offenders were not sufficiently heavy to constitute a deterrent.  The Gibsons Ratepayers Association was revived at a  meeting in the United Church Hall last week. Twenty-  four persons attended and elected Earle Dawe chairman.  30 YEARS AGO  No Coast News was published this week owing to the  absence of a linotype operator.

"One log we loaded was 11 feet through," said  photographer and logger, Harold Swanson. "The wind had broken the top off the tree and let in the  moisture.

Tyner  It will soon be time for the  annual general meeting of the  Pender Harbour and District  Health Centre Society. This  meeting is usually held  sometime in October when there;  will be the election of officers1  and consideration of various \  . reports including the financial;  statements. 't  The clinic operated by the*  society is needed in Pender Har-<  bour and should have its ser-;  vices improved and extended.  To accomplish this the guidance  and support of the people of  Pender Harbour is necessary.  They should be sure to attend  the meeting but before doing so,  see to it that their membership  in the society is in good standing.  I have found the service provided by the clinic exceptionally  good. I have been impressed  with the kind, personal attention of the nurses and the advice  of the doctors. I have not  received better attention  anywhere. The availability of  'the staff and the personal attention given at the clinic is  something not easily found.  With their help my health has  much improved.  We must ask ourselves  whether we wish to become an  independent community or  merely part of the greater  Sechelt with no local services.  To neglect our clinic leads in  that direction. The clinic is a  vital part of the community and  deserves our attention. The people of the auxiliary have  recognized the importance of  the clinic and work hard and  diligently in its support. The efforts of these people are to be  commended and they should  command our respect for they  have provided the much needed  funding for the purchase of  equipment and other essentials  for the clinic.  The Board of Trustees undoubtedly has a number of problems, however, if it wishes to  have our sympathetic  understanding as well as our  guidance and assistance, it  should send but periodic  bulletins giving the status of  present programs as well as  plans for the future. Its failure  to do this has resulted in uninformed opinion and lack of  support.  We know that the board has  had a difficult time keeping  doctors, still, for the most part,  it has secured the services of  doctors who have given us good  medical attention. The judgement of the board in the difficult task of selecting a doctor  has usually been sound. The  fact that the doctors come and  go is one of the conditions to be  faced in the operation of the  clinic and is no reason for  despair.  The reasons expressed or implied by the doctors, when leav  ing, should be carefully analyzed and possible solutions to the  problem found.  If it is any comfort to the  board it is understood that  many clinics have the same difficulty with medical staff moving on. The board should persist  in its efforts in always seeking  the services of a good, qualified  doctor, supporting him while he  is;,here, while at the same time  recognizing that' he may mpve-  on after a time.  ���-There are a number of areas  in the operation of the clinic  that require our attention.  - Originally it was the intention  that the clinic would offer a  wide range of health services including a dentist and physiotherapist.  To the best of my knowledge  all dentists on the Peninsula  have their offices on the second  floor of buildings without  elevators. This makes access  almost impossible for those of  us who find it difficult to climb  stairs. The need for a dentist  with offices on the ground floor  is a matter of urgency for all of  us in that condition. The clinic  is ideally situated to provide for  these people as it has space for a  dentist on the ground floor with  equipment provided by the auxiliary.  Why, under these circumstances, the trustees have  not been able to obtain the services of a dentist is not easily  understood. It would seem to  me that if the situation was  clearly explained and a reasonable proposal offered there  are dentists who would be  prepared to attend on a regular  if periodic basis. Of course it  would have to be understood  that the patients would be  available at specified times. It  has been my experience that  dentists are reasonable people  and are quite aware that there  are many of us who just cannot  climb stairs.  There is a need for a  physiotherapist in the community as there are many peo  ple, like myself, with aches and  pains that require professional  attention. The auxiliary has  provided the necessary equipment and from time to time  there has been a physiotherapist  available in the district, yet, for  some reason, no action seems to  have been taken. If no other  avenue is open, perhaps some  arrangement could be made to  have the physiotherapist at the  hospital make an occasional  visit to the clinic. I expect the  government would be interested  in assisting in this.  As these matters are important to the clinic and the community, greater energy should  be expended in the effort to obtain these services.  There is the question of an  x-ray unit for the clinc. Years  ago, before the building was  constructed, the government insisted that a lead lined room be  provided for x-ray. It is  understood that, after some  delay, the government sent one  to the clinic where it lay without  being installed. It is further  understood that the government, becoming weary of the  procrastination, reclaimed the  equipment and sent it elsewhere. I have heard the excuse  that there was no radiologist  available. This would not have  prevented its installation and  once it was installed the government could have been requested  to assist in obtaining the services  of a radiologist. In this connection I know that, at one time,  there were very favourable  discussions under way with the  radiologist at Powell River.  Although there are, perhaps,  a number of areas of management deserving some criticism  still nothing can be gained by so  doing, however to lose the services of the clinic would be a  major set-back to the growth  and well being of the community. The problems facing the  clinic are not insurmountable  and can be intelligently resolved  with the application of some  concentration and energy.

William Carlos Williams  Dedicated to Sheila and Mike marking their 25 year  marriage, and to Dawn and Peter for their wedding day.  by Maryanne West  An economic strategy for the  Sunshine Coast put together by  the Joint Council of Unions and  the Solidarity Coalition earlier  this year has recently come to  my attention.  It is a comprehensive study  worthy of serious consideration  by the community.  The basic premise, is that  small communities like the Sunshine Coast should stop waiting  for the government to come to  their aid, or for that matter for  the next upturn in the boom and  bust economic cycle but should  look to their own resources and  work together to provide economic security for their area. As  is rightly noted, Governments  have to respond to the louder  cries of the cities and the overall  state of world or even provincial  economics is beyond our control.  This is so obviously true and  makes such good sense that we  should be able to start from a  position of consensus.  Now we're not all of us union  members nor for that matter  socialists, and in fact the very  word is an anathema to some;  nor is such prejudice limited to  one facet of the political spectrum.  This, then, is surely where we  have to start, and that includes  all of us, however dear and well  nourished and long held our  particular biases may be. If we  are to get anywhere we have to  consciously discard them.  Unless we are prepared to work  together honestly, regardless of  political stripe there is no future  for the Sunshine Coast.  While everyone's attitude is  important, those who are  elected to public office must be  most aware and conscious of  the fact that such biases are a  luxury we can no longer afford.  After all we didn't elect you to  express your personal ideology  unless it is for the benefit of the  community as a whole. We  elected you to serve the needs of  the whole community, not just a  particular group, and to provide  well thought out and researched  leadership for the benefit of  everyone.  This document is intended as  I read it, not as a blue print to  be adhered to without change  but as a starting point, a basis  for discussion. It provides a  number of ideas and suggestions based on the natural  resources of the area and how  we could go about helping  ourselves. It is straightforward,  practical and almost free of  political excesses. It deserves to  be taken seriously.  Some may think there are  some suggestions of the Cloud 9  variety - such as taking over the  L & K operation or Port Mellon  - but don't use that as an excuse  for a put down.  Many years ago the shcools  had a talented musician to coordinate music teaching in the  District and one of the things I  learned from him is that if you  want to get anywhere Cloud 9 is  the place from which to start.  At brain storming sessions we  were always encouraged to go  for the big ideas, nothing was  too fanciful or too silly to be included.  "Don't start by loading  yourself up with all the difficulties" he would say, "or  you'll never get off the  ground." How many good  ideas have you seen bogged  down for just this reason?  There was appropriate advice  from the German philosopher  Goethe printed on this page a  few weeks ago. It read: "Until  one   is   committed,   there   is  hesitancy, the chance to draw  back,   always   ineffectiveness,  concerning all acts of initiative.  There is one elementary truth,  ;  the ignorance of which  kills  countless  ideas  and  splendid  plans:  that  the moment  one  ,  definitely commits oneself then  ���  providence moves too. All sorts  of things occur to help one that  )  would never otherwise have oc-  '  cured. A whole stream of events  issue from the decision, raising  in one's favour all manner of  unforeseen   incidents   and   ,  meetings and material assistance   ;;  which   no   man   could   have   ���  dreamed would have come his   ;  way. Whatever you can do or   ;  dream   you   can,   begin   it.   ;  Boldness has genius, power and   ���  magic in it. Begin it now."

III|MMII��I��W|IIPIWH.^  Editor:  Claims that the aquaculture  'industry is only capable of providing minimal employment opportunities, frequently quote  figures released by the Science  Council of Canada as being the  definitive word on this subject.  We cannot fault you for  quoting these misleading  figures. In an editor's comment  last week when using Science  Council figures you said that  aquaculture would only produce about 160 jobs throughout  B.C. by 1995. Further that local  Solidarity Coalition in their  published plan for developing  jobs on the Sunshine Coast,  released earlier this year, also  quote this source in an effort to  debunk the potential of  aquaculture.  We do not know how or  from what source Science  Council of Canada arrived at  their conclusions, but perhaps  the following figures will be of  interest to your readers. These  figures are the result of a survey  conducted by us of existing  functioning fish and shellfish  farms operating solely on the  Sunshine Coast or in its immediately adjacent area just  across Jervis Inlet. Most of the  farms concerned are members  of this association.  Full time jobs on fish farms  -112, full time jobs in associated  fields of employment directly  dependent of aquaculture - 10  making a total of 122 jobs.  To this can be added a variety  of additional employment  created for local sawmills,  fabricating shops, and supply  type businesses, upon which it is  impossible to put accurate  figures.  Compare .today's position  with that pertaining about one  year ago, when an estimate at  that time would have produced  about 30 jobs in the farms and  none in associated businesses.  We are not going to make  any claims for as far away as the  end of this century, close as it  actually is, but do expect our  estimate of 122 jobs existing at  present to at least double by the  . end of 1986. Can any other  local industry point to a growth  record that will beat this?  In terms of other positive  developments generated by the  industry it seems fair to point to  the expectations of the Sunshine  Coast Aquaculture Association  in regard to the International  Conference to be held here in  October. Delegate booking is  now heavy and appears likely to  exceed our most optimistic projections and the trade show is  now so heavily booked that we  could not squeeze another  "fish" in.  Not bad going for a group of  dedicated fish farmers who are  more interested in quietly going  about their business, than seeking headlines.  Syd Heal, President  Sunshine Coast Aquaculture  Association  Editor's note: A point made  both well and graciously.  Property owner's rebuttal  Editor: .y    -  Re: Mr. Vince Bracewell's letter, September 9. <  It certainly is nice of Mr.  Bracewell to concede "some  portion not needed by the fish  farms" in the different coves  and beaches that the public has'  used for many years, would still  be left for public use if he was in  charge of zoning.  I doubt however, if many  people would want to swim in  that portion left by Mr. Brace-  well's generosity because of the  waste products dumped in the  water by the millions of penned  fish in the surrounding fish  farms.  Are the limited number of  jobs, most likely the majority of  which will be minimum wage  jobs, produced by fish  farms  A bit  unfair?  Editor:  Re:  Al  Fraser's Ozsome cartoon.  Hey Al, genuinely humourous commentary, but  don'cha think it's a bit unfair?  The lady's just doing her job.  I mean, we all know the real  problem isn't dogs or dogcat-  cher; it's irresponsible dog  owners. They're the ones who  should be scooped up in her net.  ' Besides, if it weren't for dog  control we cyclists would be an  endangered species.  Jeff Mulcaster  HAPPY 25th  Mike & Sheila  the answer for our young people  on the coast? Are these the type  of jobs Mr. Bracewell is willing  to rezohe the whole coast for  and in the process destroy the  natural beauty of the area for  the local residents and tourists  alike?  Having lived and worked on  the Sunshine Coast for the last  ten years and having spent virtually every penny I earn in the  local community in order to  support myself and five other  dependents, I find it rather  peculiar to have someone refer  to me as a "recent resident with  a thriving business and investments in the lower  mainland."  As far as public meetings go,  I have attended many of the  forums put on by the Sunshine  Coast Employment Development Society. I don't recall ever  attending a meeting on the coast  to protest anything except the  recent placing of a fish farm in a  residential area without the  benefit of public input.  Mr. Bracewell's claim that I  am not concerned with the  needs of local businessmen is  absolutely untrue. Last year I  purchased framing lumber for  my new home at a local lumber  yard. I paid seven hundred  dollars above the quoted price  of three Vancouver firms for  the same lumber delivered on  site. I did this because I believe  in supporting the local merchants whenever possible. How  many other people on the coast  including Mr. Bracewell would  have done the same?  As far as Vince wanting to  ramble on my property for ever  because he used to years ago, I  would suggest that if he had  worked hard and saved his  money he could have purchased  my property before me and  done all the rambling he  wanted.  Scantech now has a licence of  occupation for the water covering five acres. They originally  applied for twenty-seven acres  and I assume if they are successful they will keep5 on reap  plying for as many acres as they  can get.  At that point even if I wear  blinkers and stare straight ahead  it will be hard to avoid seeing  the fish farm. For Mr.  Bracewell to say that the fish  farm does not spoil my view only indicates to me that he has  never been here to see the situation as it exists.  I hope that Scantech will provide some jobs just as much as  Mr. Bracewell does, but in an  area where fish farms belong,  not where they spoil other people's life style and cause them  financial harm.  My neighbours and I live in  the area, spend our money in  the area, and pay considerable  taxes towards the area. This  helps to support other people in  the community and is part of  our contribution.  The person that has little contact with the local people and  seems to be causing the most  disruption in the community is  Mr. Carsten Hagen, the president of Scantech Resources.  I believe he lives in the British..  Properties in West Vancouver  and from that wealthy area he  directs the placing of his fish  farms and icing plants into the  residential areas of the Sunshine  Coast. He does this with little or  no regard for the rights and  feelings - of the long term  residents of the area.  I am not against fish farms or  Scantech Resources Ltd., but I  am strongly opposed to fish  farms being located in residential areas. I am also outraged by  the manner in which this company was allowed to locate a  fish farm in a residential area  without any public input whatsoever.  The provincial government  through its Ministry of Lands,  Parks and Housing brought this  entire problem about by their  absolute lack of consultation. I  expect them to rectify this problem by helping this company  to relocate in a more suitable  area.  ���8��/t  Mac Richardson  Halfmoon Bay  o  Continues  ON  ESCORT/LYNX  &  RANGER/BRONCO II  We will not be undersold  Wharf Rd.,  Sechelt  DL 5936  885-3281  ,1  TOP PRIORITY!

The purpose of the zoning  change is so that this parcel of  land can be used as a campground - so it has been claimed  by the applicant.  I was at the Planning meeting  last spring when the applicant  presented his proposal to turn  this land into a campground.  After questioning the applicant about his plans and intended operation it became clear  that his plan was not feasible  for several reasons:  Chamber to chair meeting  Editor:  JRe: Gibsons and District  ���(Chamber of Commerce to  tChair Town Meeting.  ;': Recently B.C.

"Liberalism lives on the Sunshine Coast.'  Dana Lamb  President/Sunshine Coast  Liberal Association  Thieves  Editor:  There are thieves on the  waterways in our area.  I have lost two sets of prawn  and one crab trap; including 500  feet of rope each time, anchors  and bouys. Many times the  traps have been raided and the  contents stolen.  It is very discouraging to lose  time,   energy   and   money   to  thoughtless greedy people.   It  certainly is not sporting.  So if you see a different boat,  including commercial vessels,  pulling up traps, write down  their number and report it to the  authorities. If the boat owner is  innocent he will be glad of the  observance as this unlawful  practice is a very common occurence.  R.F.  Garbage  Editor:  Oh, how we yearn for the  'Good Old Days'. It did my  heart good to see them return in  the form of the sights and smells  of garbage pick-up, every second week, (even better than the  good old days). The dogs having their fun in the cans and  bags because no-one wanted the  garbagethis week, especially the  house-holder, but lucky as she  is, she can keep it for another  week after buying yet another  can or bag in order to keep two  weeks supply, or to sort out her  cans and bottles in between.  The lucky housewife can now  spend her spare moments  washing cans and bottles, cutting cardboard containers in  half to remove metal tops and  training her children to lick the  papers to see which have glue. I  thought it might be fun to watch  the "garbage men" looking in  each plastic bag to discern if it  contained, bottles, cans or,  eureka, garbage, but alas no,  they just left it all, untouched.  Am I in favour of recycling?  Yes, when and if I want to do it  . I will take it to a depot myself  and jn the meantime look forward to another two weeks of  storing the garbage. Oh, I know  it's just the first week and no  doubt we'll get used to not storing our garbage on the roadside  but, store it we will have to do,  under the sink, behind doors,  on the porch, just like the good  old days.  P.S. Half the pick-must mean  \J? the rates, right? Who  knows, we well might get back  to garbage in the bush, just like  the G.O.D.  G. Fyles  1. He stated that he was aiming  his business towards hikers who  would come here to tent.  2.There is only space to put in  approximately 60 campsites,  after the Highway Department  purchases the required land for  their connecting routes to the  Bypass Highway, which in-  cidently are going through the  lower section of this property.  Sixty campsites, even if they  were going to be used for trailer  and motorhome use, wouldn't  even pay for the taxes much less  the interest on investment  especially with our short season  and the poor location away  from the beach.  This matter leaves several  questions in my mind:  1. Why not a fully developed  Recreational Vehicle Park  which might pay for itself  -which he definitely stated he  was not planning on?  2. Is it going to be a cheap rent  trailer park ending up as an all  year ghetto for hippy type  trailers, which is inconsistent  with the intended planning for  this area?  3. Is there some other reason  not being divulged regarding  this property, like the intended  purchase of the highway right  of way?  4. Why the persistent attitude  on this matter by the applicant  when the proposed plan submitted does't present itself as a  sound investment?  I am a strong proponent of  Recreational Vehicie Parks  because I am a user of them and  I firmly believe they will help  the economy here on the Sunshine Coast. However the applicant has stated to a previous  meeting that such is not his intention.  On the night of this public  hearing meeting I'll be attending  the Hospital Society meeting, so  by this letter I am asking that  the persons attending the public  hearing not approve the change  of the zoning until a more  sound reason be presented.  Bert Norman  Editor:  As I walked the beach, I was  struck with a pioneering spirit I  hoped to share as I saw the summer slip by not unnoticed.  Though no advocate myself,  the Amish, the simple life, brings body and soul together in a  kind of harmony known no  other way. In September, a  coastal harvest month, a certain  unity is noted among small  communities such as ours.  Yesterday I canned pickles,  picked blackberries; today the  fishermen haul in their catch.  Fall is on the way, and the  preparation is gratifying. There  seems a link with generations  gone by, where creatures large  and small join in one common  pursuit, that of gathering food  for storage. That of saying  goodbye to the summer...  K.

The Sunshine Coast En-  ivironmental Protection Project  has decided to withdraw its  notice of appeals for four  joutstanding B.C. Forest Service  jpesticide permits.  ;yThe Environmental Appeal  Board only overturns a permit  bn certain grounds such as  (domestic water intake situated  ���i0 metres from the application  kite; insufficient public notification regarding a permit etc. The  above mentioned four permits  Stall within these guide-lines.  j| As a public forum, the hearing process has been a valuable  fucational tool in the past, but  proceed with these appeals,  on that basis only would, it is  felt, constitute a misuse of community and B.C. taxpayer  funds.  i| In reviewing the possible  giounds for appeal, however, a  number of serious errors were  discovered on one of the above  Mentioned permit applications,  fhe parties involved have been  Notified, and the B.C. Forest  Service has agreed to make all  necessary corrections and post  them in their Sechelt office.  It will be SCEPP's policy in  future to police all permits for  this district, and to appeal those  with merit. Scepp will also remain available to anyone concerned about pesticide use in  their area.  SCEPP has taken part in the  formation of the British Columbia Coalition for Alternatives to  Pesticides, a province-wide  representation of labour, legal,  and environmental groups.  Through this venue Scepp hopes  to concentrate on areas of law  reform in regards to pesticide  use and misuses from the standards of pesticide registration to  amendments in the appeal  system, to forming province-  wide public "right to know"  bylaws, etc.  Scepp members are very excited about the formation of the  coalition, as it gives the public a  much stronger voice in attempting to determine how pesticides  will be used in Canada.  SCEPP's contact numbers  are 885-3618 or 885-2858.  UALITY MEATS  A  Canada Grade ** Beef ��� Boneless g%     ffe ������  top sirloin steaks *90.37 ,b.

Here the Langdale students are pictured with Principle George Allan keeping a  watchful eye.  ���Dianne Evans photo  Council reaffirms  support for theatre  "A nicely constructed theatre  would   certainly   add   to   the  downtown revitalization," was  the consensus of opinion at last  Wednesday's Gibsons planning  committee   meeting,   when  Director of the Eileen Glassford  Arts    Foundation,    Colleen  -Elson,   appeared   before   the  n committee to seek a reaffirma-  " tion of the council's support for  a theatre project.  The recent success of tne  Summer Play Parade has shown  that theatre could survive in  Gibsons and in fact, do well. On  several nights people were turned away from the door, and the  series of plays realised financial  success.  ��� The previous Gibsons council, in July 1984, had given its  support of the downtown  theatre, and it was the pleasure  of the planning committee to reaffirm that support.  The lower Gibsons location is  ideal, said Mrs. Elson, because  of its proximity to the waterfront and tourists arriving on  boat, and the aesthetics of the  site.  The theatre, which would  seat from 150-300 people,  would be funded through provincial and federal funding,  presently being explored by a  member of the foundation, and  private donations. Beachcombers star and Gibsons resident, Bruno Gerussi, has said  that he will give his support in  such fund-raising events.  The site is not yet confirmed,  although the site of the old Fire  Hall is a possibility as is the  lower corner of a 40 acre block  of municipal land near Dougal  Park.  Alderman John Burnside,  who excused himself from  discussion because of his interest in the Arts Foundation,  did however say that the  Unemployment Action Centre  which is located in the old Fire  Hall, would be welcome to use  the new facility, although he  hoped the need  for such an  organization may be passed' by  the time the theatre is built.  Chairman of the planning  committee, Alderman Bob  Maxwell pointed out that the  theatre located where the old  Fire Hall now stands would  "lend itself nicely to a roof  garden," and also suggested the  possibility of constructing the  theatre on the government  wharf, were it permissible.

Mark Guignard appeared before the Gibsons planning committee on Wednesday  last to plead his case for the  rezoning necessary for building  a commercial establishment adjacent to the present Shell gas  station in upper Gibsons.  "This, will, strengthen small  business in Gibsons," said  Guignard, pointing to the story  on small business development  in Gibsons published in the last  issue of the Coast News. His  company intends to open a full  new car dealership, which will  also sell used cars, and offer  mechanical and body shop service as well as supply hard-to-  get parts.  "This will beautify the area  and it will contribute to the  declining tax base," Guignard  continued. "We'll be bringing  about $1 million to the community each year."  Planner Rob Buchan was en  thusiastic. "This is an added  service for the town of  Gibsons," Buchan said, "and it  will create some jobs. My only  note of caution is based on a  previous denial and the fact that  we have only limited industrial  zoning. Any change in zoning  erodes that stock.  ^"And to encourage Mr.  Guignard is in conflict with a  previously denied application,  (to Shell proprietor Ian Harding  who wishes to open a convenience store at his gas station),"  Buchan continued.  Alderman John Burnside  recommended that the planner  process the application and inform the previous applicant that  his is being reviewed.  "This is a positive and important development," Burnside  said "I certainly, and with enthusiasm can support Mr.  Guignard's proposal and look  to rectifying what would have  been an injustice to the former  applicant."

GIBSONS  Green  Grocers  now  located in the  Cedar  Plaza  ��� Fresh Fruits  and Vegetables  ��� Specialty Food Items  ��� Cheese,  ...and  much  more!  as�� 81  "Let's aim high," said Alderman John Burnside at the Gibsons planning committee  meeting last Wednesday morning addressing the downtown  revitalization shopping list  Planner Rob Buchan presented  for consideration.  Several items on the list are  carried over from Phase I of the  downtown revitalization program and the remainder are part  of new development, and include the completion of the  seawalk, the development of  parking areas, better municipal  signage, lighting, landscaped  areas and other upgrading of  the downtown core.  The second phase of  revitalization may have to go to  referendum, because the town  has used up its short term borrowing capacity and will have to  undertake any new loans on a  long term basis, said Clerk-  treasurer Lorraine Goddard.  The project costs are shared  with Victoria.  "We should be content to let  the people decide," Burnside  continued, "but let's not be  skimping in our minds. There  has never been a better time for  acceptance from Victoria or  from the people of the town  than now. The tremondous success of Phase I has prepared the  state of mind of the Victoria  government, and also of the  people, who can see what a difference it has made to our  town."  As was illustrated by Phase I,  making a shopping list does not  mean that every item will  become a reality but the1 list is a  way of incorporating all the  reasonable and practical ideas  that may be used to continue on  this important revitalization  program.

Framed copies of letters of  congratulation were received  from Brian Mulroney, Jean  Sauve, John Turner and  William Bennett, along with a  suitably inscribed plaque from  the sons commemorating 1935  -the wedding, 1960 - the silver  anniversary, and 1985 - the  golden.

Bus Nuts, the northwest chapter of the Family  Motor Coach Association, met  in Wilson Creek last weekend at  the first Sunshine Coast rally  and 20 motor coaches arrived,  sporting the very latest in motor  coach technology and comfort.  There are some 67,000  members, with 50,000 of those  active in the United States and  Canada. Last July's international rally in Puyallup,  Washington, brought 2,500  coaches together.  "There's a couple of million  dollars worth of motor coach  out there," Ted said, pointing  to the grassy fields of the camp  site, "One of them, the Blue  Bird Wander Lodge, is worth  $400,000! It's got electric  drapes, even, and a computer  called Herman that won't let the  bus drive away until everything  is A-OK."  Ted hopes that his seven acre  campground will be able to host  more rallies like this weekend's  in the future.  "Our magazine, Family  Motor Coaching, lists all the  members of the association and  the numbers of their coaches, so  you know each other before you  ever meet," he explained. "We  want to put an article on the  Sunshine Coast in the  magazine, to put us on the  map."  Members from California,  Washington, Oregon, Alaska,  Alberta, Montana, Idaho and  B.C. joined together at this rally  and Ted thinks it could become  an annual event.  "Tourism, that's the way to  go," he said.

Diabetic care  St. Mary's Hospital is beginning a new service for diabetics,  and anyone interested in taking  part should contact their doctor  for a referral.  "Diabetic Day Care" is being  established to provide support,  information, testing and consultation for people of any age  with any kind of diabetes.  It involves a full day (7:30  a.m. to 3:15 p.m.) once a month  spent in the board room ot tne  hospital, where there will be  meals and snacks provided.  Blood and urine testing will also  be done, medication supervised  and films, guest speakers and  consultations offered.  Diabetics are encouraged to  bring a friend or family member  with them lor the day,  preferably someone involved  with their diet and care.  Organizing the service over  the past year have been  registered nurse Jeannette Mc  Bain, dietician Michelle Chapman and Doctor David Yaxley.  "If a person is diabetic and  interested in learning more  about his situation, all he has to  do is contact his doctor for a  referral," said Ms McBain.  "Then the hospital will contact  him and send a follow-up letter  outlining the details and format  of the day, what to bring, etc."  It has been estimated that  there are as many as 500  diabetics on the Sunshine  Coast. "Every individual has  his own needs," added Ms McBain. "Any diabetic is welcome  to come to this group, even it ne  doesn't have a specific problem.  We are essentially a support  group."  The first Diabetic Day Care  session is planned for Thursday,  September 26, with a maximum  of eight participants, so those  interested should contact their  doctor as soon as possible.  Superhost course  '    Everyone   who   deals   with  ��� visitors to the Sunshine Coast  lean likely benefit from the  ! Superhost course. Superhost  Ihelps owners and staff of  .'tourism or other business to  j establish a high level of service,  [which helps create more business and return customers.  \ This short course helps a  'business operation to look and  * feel more professional. It gives  ^concrete steps to aid in communicating with customers, in  solving complaints, and dealing  iwith problems before they  jbecome major. Group discussion in the course with other  ���businesses generates more ideas  and an information exchange so  that there is local input and ex  perience to build on.  Skills gained in the six hour  Superhost seminar can give  potential employees an edge in  job hunting. These same skills  which are useful in the business  world, can also be applied in  more personal situations which  may require listening, clarification and clear communication.  Join other businesses and  employees on Monday, September 23, 4 to 10 p.m. at the  Sechelt Campus of Capilano  College. Pre-registration is required at 885-9210. The fee is  $10. Please call the Campus  after 2:30 Monday to Friday to  register to learn to become a  Superhost.  by Ruth Forrester, 885-2418  About 100 people dropped by  ��� |     last Sunday to join in the picnic  a.    at Cooper's Green. The former  s     store building was opened for  E     inspection and Peggy Connor  a     answered many quesitons put to  |     her about the park's usage. You  ^     do have an opportunity to state  your views on the future of the  park by filling in the questionnaires   in   both   local   papers.  Your ideas are what will count  in the final planning.  Representatives from local  organizations were available to  inform the public as to the  many local activities available in  our area. The Halfmoon Bay  Recreation Association, the  Ratepayers' Association, the  Welcome Beach Community  Association, the playschool and  the baby sitting co-op were all  on hand to pass on information.  The Halfmoon Bay volunteer  fire department were there with  all their equipment and a  demonstration was given of the  use of fire extinguishers. This  was most informative, and a  warning was given to those of  you who have old extinguishers  that you must give it an occasional shake up or it might well  be useless to you in a time of  emergency. The fellows at the  fire hall will be happy to check  yours out.  Winners in the blackberry  contest were - Lenore Rudland  for the pie, Marion Wing the  cordial and Marion Terrilon for  the jelly. The Blackberry  Festival was a good theme and  might well be used again for  another such function next  year.  RECREATION  The Recreation Association  will be holding their monthly  meeting at the hall in Cooper's  Green next Thursday,  September 19, at 7:30 p.m. New  members will be made most  welcome.

A GOOD LADY PASSES  Blanche McCrady made  many friends during her years  of residence on Redrooffs  Road, all of whom will be saddened to learn of her passing on  Wednesday, September 11 at  Lions Gate Hospital. For the  past two years Blanche was a  resident of Lynn Valley Lodge.  She was predeceased by her husband Ralph and is survived by  two sons Frank and Grant and  four grandchildren.  For several years Blanche was  a very active and willing  member of the Welcome Beach  Community Association to  whom she donated much time  and energy. One of her  pleasures in life was the  beautiful garden which she  tended so lovingly at her  Redrooffs home.  A memorial service was held  at the Boal Chapel in North  Vancouver on Saturday. In lieu  of flowers a request has been  made for donations to the B.C.  Branch Kidney Foundation, 353  West 7th Avenue, Vancouver,  V5Y 1NQ.

"Have you any idea how  many pamper diapers a three  month old baby goes through in  a week?"  "We have to deal with dogs,  bears, racoons, crows, and rats  at our garbage."  "We did not vote for nor give  permission for by-weekly garbage pickup and will not have it  forced upon us."  "I have no intention of going  out and buying special yellow  bags for papers."

Do the  recycling pickup every other  Monday or any other day of the  week but Wednesday.  When citizens get used tp a >  procedure which has been  satisfactory for years they do  not take kindly to change,  especially when it does not  benefit them in any way. And  more especially when they are  paying for a service which-is  suddenly removed. j  I am quite sure that both the  regional district office and the  recycling depot were even more  inundated with phone c4Ils  from irate citizens than I w��s,  and hope that they will pay attention to the people's wishes. ]~-< ���  r    ���    f- r ( '   T ��" -~ -~ ?  -r -���'������:���-  10.  Coast News, September 16,1985  Community development officer Irene Lugsdin was guest speaker  at last week's Area E meeting. ���Fran Burnside photo  George    in    Gibsons  Cyclist happy  working at home  by George Cooper, 886-8520  Stu Nichols, former member  of our national junior cycling  team, now works with his  parents in their shop, The  Country Pumpkin, at Martin  and Highway 101.  "I do my main woodwork in  a workshop in Roberts Creek,"  said Stu, "and I leave the  finishing work to do at the  Country Pumpkin to avoid any  dust problem for the store.  "I build cedar chests and  jewelry boxes, carve ladles and  spoons," said Stu, "and make  rocking horses big and small,  toy-size.  "Our store theme is the old-  fashioned, an appeal to nostalgia. Ceramic crocks from the  Medalta company in southern  Alberta, sheepskins, from Down  Under, wrought iron forged in  B.C., and a few spinning wheels  are our main stock items," Stu  said.  He did say their supply of  wooden casks was cut off when  Sweeney's Cooperage in Vancouver was expropriated to Expo. "That was the last of the  real coopers in Canada," said  Stu.  No Canadian sheepskins?  "No. The Australian and New  Zealand ones are washable and  seem to be a more suitable wool  for mats or seat covers expecial-  ly in wheel chairs."  Anyone motoring to Vancouver can recall the shop on  Georgia adjacent to Stanley  Park where the mannequin in  her fleece bikini stands outside  summer and winter. "We don't  stock those," said Stu.  "The local maple and alder is  good to work with," said Stu  "but I have to get the dressed  lumber in Vancouver."  And what about your cycling?  "A few years ago I undertook very serious training," said  Stu, "but after the junior national team when I went to  Europe as an amateur, I found  the competitiveness so intense,  almost bloodthirsty, that I was  turned off. There was the  hazard too of getting into taking drugs to prolong endurance  in those long road races."  He added, "Our junior team  ranked in the top ten internationally in that year, and put us  all in strong contention for berths in the Olympic team.  "Now I cycle for recreation  and to keep fit. Competing at  the provincial level suits me fine  now."  HARMONY HALL  From the September meeting  in Harmony Hall come the  following starting dates for the  Seniors' fall activities:  Choir, September 17 at 7:30  p.m.. Carpet bowling October 2  at 1 p.m. and note that the $15  fee to cover the whole year is to  be paid that day, and players .  assigned to teams. Painting  classes - call Olive Manton,  886-2853, or Hazel Coxall. Fun  Night, October 4. Tours - none  until November.  Also for seniors, a speaker  from Consumer Services of  Canada to deal with problems  seniors may encounter. For example, misunderstood home  repair contracts. This will be the  only meeting of the Consumer  Services on the Sunshine Coast.  This is it] Sechelt on October 2  at 1:30 - the Seniors' Hall adjacent to the medical clinic.  One more seniors notice. Expo group season passes can still  be applied for at the reduced  rate until September 24. Gibsons and district seniors call  George Cooper. All this is made  possible through the kindness of  the Sechelt seniors.  COUGAR SIGHTED  "When I first saw it on our  driveway, I thought my imagination was running away  with me and so I kept walking  on. Then I got a broadside view  of the animal."  Mrs. Agatha Mackenzie of  Gower Point Road in Gibsons,  was telling about the cougar she  encountered about three weeks  ago as she returned home on  foot from shopping.  "It glided across the roadway  in front of me, a frightening  sight, and big."  Mrs. Mackenzie said the sight  of the cougar gave her a scare  that took her a couple of days to  recover from.  "I wish I had reported the  cougar right away to the police  or the conservation officer. It  wasn't until I thought of the  school children who use the  woodland paths that I did  phone. Of course they told me  the cougar was likely miles away  by that time."  COAST COVERAGE  So officials in Gibsons feel  left out of tourist promotion of  the scenic ferry and road tours  in our neighbourhood.  Let them find some comfort  then in coverage in the August,  1985 Sunset magazine published  in California.  Under the title "Island hopping by ferry in the Northwest - 5  adventures", adventure No. 4  gives a tourist guide to the Sunshine Coast in painstaking  detail. Accurate too.  For example, "This superb  sampler (Sunshine Coast) of  coastal B.C. offers non stop  recreational diversion - fishing,  boating, hiking, camping,  beachcombing, swimming...a  coast heralded for its fair  weather."  And "(from Langdale) 3  miles to the village of Gibsons  (museum, marina, nearby hiking trails, lodging)...to Sechelt  (galleries, shops, nearby hiking  trails, seaplane sightseeing)  ...Pender Harbour, a collection  of marinas, hamlets, and  villages with miles of sheltered  coast favoured by power  boaters, canoeists, fishermen,  and seaplane pilots."  Beyond Earl's Cove "some  of the best scenery of the  loop...forested mountains  plunging into the sea, snow-  tipped crags rearing in the  distance, bald eagles wheeling  overhead."  The tourist is urged to turn  off the highway to see the  Skookumchuk by way of Egmont.  Even Powell River and  Nanaimo are mentioned - but  barely.  And all this with no solicitation from us. Practise saying  'cheese' everyone, and move  over.

The plot involves  fun-loving kids, computers, unsuspecting adults, and a girl  with the kind of beauty that  boys can usually only dream of.  Kelly LeBrock, who stars as  the girl the two computer whiz  kids dream up, has lovely lips  and a zany sense of humour and  says her role is that of a kind of  'sexy Mary Poppins, in control  of all situations'.  Also starring in this movie are  Anthony Michael Hall, Ilan  Mitchell-Smith and Bill Paxton.  Next Saturday, Summer Rental comes to the Twilight for a  four night run.

Tetrault's paintings and  prints (linocuts and woodcuts)  expressing his reactions to the  Northwest coast are very different. Larger, and using acrylic  and oil rather than watercolour,  they are both more decorative  and mystical. He is particularly  fascinated with the mask as used by the Northwest Indian, and  he Ukes to put them on painted,  dancing figures, or eeerily  floating in space or looming  through the forest. The Northwest to Tetrault is a thin layer  of technical order over many  ancient layers of mystery and  magic as represented by the Indian culture.

He moved from town  to town, legally registering at  each place he went but skipping  out before the call came.  Hodgson was finally apprehended by the FBI in Palm  Springs and charged with  "Failure to Report a Change of  Address   Within   Ten   Days".  When his case came up, the  charges were mysteriously dropped but he was still ordered to  report within the same time  period. It was at this point that  Hodgson, like thousands of war  protesters before him, decided  to seek sanctuary in Canada. He  crossed the border at Bell-  ingham in 1967 and came  directly to the Sunshine Coast  where he has lived ever since. It  is here that the story of Chalice  Mining properly begins.  Steve Hodgson (who long  ago became a Canadian citizen),  took to his new home instantly.  B.C. was definitely his kind of  country. For one thing, it was a  geologist's dream. But first, a  living had to be made. "I did  almost any kind of work to survive in those first years,"  Hodgson remembers.  Hodgson indeed, followed a  pretty diverse variety, of occupations during his early days on  the Sunshine Coast. He groomed horses for a local breeder;  worked as a carpenter on pop  star Joni Mitchell's house at  Middlepoint; worked on a  survey crew; wrote a fishing column for the local paper; made  custom jewelry and played flute  and saxophone in several homegrown rock bands. But most  importantly, he revived his interest in rocks and began prospecting in his spare time.  Hodgson soon discovered  that his studies in geology had  not prepared him for field  work. He had to learn the  business from the ground up  and also familiarize himself  with the new high-tech electronic methods that w'ere now  being used. When Hodgson had  honed his skills sufficiently, he  began taking prospecting trips,  grubstaked by various mining  companies. These jaunts took,  him with his pan and tools up  lonely streams in remote, likely  corners all over B.C.  Back on the peninsula,  Hodgson began to sniff around  his own backyard. His attention  became focussed on the Egmont  area where certain amounts of  gold, silver and copper had been  found in the past. Hodgson dug  out the records and studied  these early attempts.  A tunnel was reportedly  driven along the shoreline near  Earl's Cove, by an R. Dunsford  Jr. in 1913. It is not recorded  that he found much of note.  Some exploratory work was  done in 1937, on the Cambrian  Chieftain property, several  kilometers further west. In  1952, long-time local resident  Ernie Silvey staked a claim on  the foreshore between Earl's  Cove and Egmont, where  sulfide veins indicated the  presence of minerals. Silvey  later sold the option to Abacom  Explorations Ltd. of Calgary.  They actually did some excavating near the high-tide level  and in 1965, 106 tons of  auriferous material were shipped by barge to Tacoma,  Washington. Smelting produced 34 ounces of gold; 45 ounces  of silver and 170 pounds of copper. Despite this encouraging  yield, the project was then  abandoned, due to low gold  prices and lack of capital.  Hodgson and two fellow prospectors, John LaRue and Kim  Sweet, decided to investigate the  area around Egmont. They  commenced their explorations  in 1979, starting at the old  Abacom pits.  An early incident around the  pits nearly led to the undoing of  LaRue and himself, Hodgson  remembers, "We got a fishboat  to run us to the site and went  ashore by canoe. There were  lots of promising-looking rocks  lying around and we loaded the  canoe and our bush-jacket  pockets with them. When it  came time to leave, we climbed  in the damn thing and realized  we were way overloaded. There  were only about two inches of  freeboard left. I started thinking  what would happen if we went  in the chuck with all that ballast  on us, - we'd go right to the bottom! We emptied our pockets  over the side in a hurry."  From the quality of the ore  samples they extracted from the  pits, Hodgson and his partners  became convinced that they had;  hit on something. Analysis  revealed the presence of  tellurides, an exotic combination of gold and other rare  metals, seldom found in B.C.  and indicative of very high-  quality ore. But how extensive  were the deposits?  Writers' Contest  Entries are now being accepted in the 10th annual  'Cecilia Lamont Literary  Award' (sponsored by the  White Rock & Surrey Writers'  Club).

Poetry entries will be  retained with authors' consent  for future publications issued by  the club.  Presentation of awards will  be in January, 1986.  Hodgson and company  studied air photos of the area  and raised enough money for a  ground survey. The results were  encouraging. They showed  many northeasterly trend-lines  of quartz-sulfite veins and vein  systems; the partners were able  to check these by car from existing roads. They tound one  rich outcropping right beside  the highway. For years, the  locals had been hauling away  mineral-laden quartz to build  rock walls, oblivious to its  potential value.  More money was scraped up  and some preliminary instrument work with Magometers,  V.L.F. and Induced Polariza-  Otiiligk Oheatre  tion equipment was done. These  surveys revealed several large  potential ore bodies and encouraged the partners to stake a  20 unit (a unit is 500 metres by  500 metres) claim around the  Abacom pits. It became Chalice  I.

This virtually untouched  watershed is slated to be logged.  Logging the Stein is an expensive proposition that will have  to be heavily subsidized by B.C.  taxpayers and'that may, in fact,  never make money.  Because the Stein is a sacred  valley to the Indians of the  southern interior, it was the  Lillooet Tribal Council who arranged this event both to  celebrate the Stein and to protest the proposed B.C. Forest  Products logging scheme.  We set off from Lillooet late  Friday afternoon. What was  billed as a "relatively easy three-  hour hike, suitable for  children" seemed, to us novice  mountaineers, to be a major expedition! As the sky darkened,  we crawled up the summit on  hands and knees beneath pelting  rain and the unaccustomed  burdens of tent, sleeping bags,  etc.  Anticipating a gentle descent  to camp, we were totally  unaware of the treacherous rock  slide yet to be negotiated in the  rapidly failing light. Precious  moments were lost in scanning  the vast alpine landscape for  diminutive trail markers.  However, we did eventually  stumble into the camp, to be  greeted by the vanguard of  about a dozen people, huddled  around a fire in the gloom and  drizzle.  These first impressions of the  site were drastically altered the  following sunny afternoon, as a  continuous stream of hikers  (among them a blind man, a  young fellow on crutches, and  parents backpacking babies and  toddlers) swelled the camp of  400.  Everyone naturally gravitated  to the blazing bonfires in the  chilly alpine evenings to exchange music, experiences,  ideas and philosophies. All day  Sunday a great variety of  speakers, both native and white,  outlined the nature of the struggle, not only for the Stein  Valley, but for Meares Island,  South Moresby, and the  Stikine���all threatened by clear-  cut logging schemes.  We were impressed by the  scope of environmental  organizations in this province.  However, we gained greater insights   about   the   province's  general state of ecological  enlightenment from personal  contacts.  There was a willingness to  publicize this endeavour by letter writing, selling buttons, participating in a picket line, protest camps, etc. On other levels  there were divergent opinions as  to the best strategy, but unity  was the basic motivation of the  various groups. We overheard  scattered criticisms of the cost  involved for the Lillooet Tribal  Council, Some felt the money  would have been better spent in  legal action.  In our opinion, however, the  environmental effort gained a  concrete advantage in exposing  such a large group to a  wilderness experience. Once  away from the distractions of  civilization, there is realisation  that our consciousness extends  to the mountains, trees and sky,  as well as to the man-made trappings of our society.  On the final day of the  festival we were awed by a  disembodied chanting and the  voice of a drum, which rebounded off the peaks and summoned into the alpine  meadowland a powerful spirit  which bound us into communion with each other and the  mountain ^wilderness.  In allowing the destruction  of our forests and parks by mining and clear cut logging we are  depriving, not only ourselves,  but the generations to come of a  chance to know the wilderness  and the opportunity to renew  the spirit by seeing the world as  it used to be.

Your guide to  the finest in  area dining  I  w  I  A listing of  restaurants  and pubs  The trees outside the  Parthenon Restaurant on  the waterfront on Trail  Bay in Sechelt are of considerable girth. It is a  reminder that the  restaurant's lovely site has  been home to an ocean-  side restaurant for a very  long time.  Long time residents will  remember when the  restaurant was called The  Calypso and the movie  house was nearby.  We arrived late the  other evening, about 8:30,  after the sun had set  across Trail Bay, but it  had been a trying day and  we were ready to be  soothed and fed and we  were not disappointed.  The Parthenon menu  offers a generous selection  of seafood dishes but my  companion and I were  definitely in a red meat  frame of mind and she  speedily settled for the  souvlaki with Greek salad  and I opted for the cordon bleu veal. We ordered  a bottle of one of two  house red wines, a fine  mellow Hungarian wine  rejoicing in the name  Szekszardi (pronounced  sez-ardi).  I had a warming bowl  of excellent chicken  vegetable soup as an appetizer while my companion wrestled with the  choice of clams, scallops,  shrimp, and escargots  before settling for the  sauteed scallops to which  she addressed herself with  evident delight.  The service was unob-  CHINESE CUISINE  Golden City - Wharf Rd., Sechelt  -885-2511. Open 11:30 -9:30 Wed-Mon.  100 seats. V., M.C. Western and  Chinese cuisine served.

My cordon bleu veal  was just right and the  baked potato absolutely  wonderful. My companion did register one small  note of disappointment in  that she felt the Greek  salad would have been improved with the use of  both olive oil and lemon,  tasty though it was.  The choosing of dessert  proved beyond me and I  settled for sipping a Pina  Colada while my companion did justice to a  generous slice of luscious  double chocolate cake and  finished off with a cup of  black coffee.  I'm sure on our next  visit we will sample the  seafood, choosing from  seafood platter, salmon,  trout, oyster, lobster and  crab selections. For the  pizza lover there are 25  different varieties to  choose from and some  very tempting pasta dishes  indeed.  Our dinner bill came to  around $50, a reasonable  price for the fare, service,  and setting but the budget  conscious should be  assured that selections  start at $4.95 for fish and  chips an $7.95 for  Salisbury steak. The service and setting remain  the same for the budget  lunch as for the indulgent  dinner and Trail Bay, of  course, is ever a Sechelt  treasure.

Tough days for  local rugby teams  It has been a tough start for  the Gibsons third division rugby  side this year. In their first two  league games they've failed to  score a try and have also failed  to win a game. Not the explosive dynamos of last year  yet?  Capilanos' scrum carried  their team to victory last Saturday, scoring three tries with the  likes of ex-international rep  Tony Scott and a few other  heavies. With the help of a surefooted fullback the wet ball  continuously rolled in favour of  the black and yellow.  Gibsons' third line saw very  little possession and failed to  capitalize whenever it appeared.  What should be mentioned is  that for all the ball the  Capilanos received it rarely  passed their centres so the Gibsons third line held defensively.  Gibsons' scrum met a group  of determined black shirts who  got the job done in their favour.  Final score was Caps 20 and  Gibsons 0.  Campaign  Campaigning for Municipal  Office, a two-day workshop on  marketing techiques for  municipal candidates, was oversubscribed when SFU/Down-  town first offered it last June.  Now this popular course is offered again on Saturday and  Sunday, September 21 and 22,  at the Granville Island Hotel.  It will be useful for candidates for municipal councils,  schools and parks boards, and  for elected officers in organizations. Course materials and lunches are included in the registration fee of $245. For information call SFU/Downtown,  687-2677.  WANTED  Used Furniture  and What Have You  We buy Brer Bottles  886-2812  Fourth division saw a little  light last Saturday, playing  against the Meralomas B. They  lost but the coach was impressed and felt the lads played well.  Gibsons' only scoring came  from the sure foot of fullback  Dave Macleod who managed  three field goals. The Lomas  drove in three tries, converting  twice for their 16 points.  Next weekend is a double  header at Elphie field, starting  at 11:30 a.m. The thirds are  playing University of B.C. and  the fourths take on the  Meralomas A.  Isn't the Sunshine Coast  Regional District (SCRD) cutting into what the Sechelt Bottle Depot  has started, the collection of glass  and newsprint? This is a question  many people have asked at the  depot.  Our answer is no. In fact, we appreciate the groundwork the recycling committee of the SCRD (under  the watchful eye of Sechelt Council)  has done for us.  Another frequently asked question is "Isn't the SCRD spending  dollars on something that has only  a marginal chance of success; how  can that be right?"  Let's put that in perspective, ft  presently costs $435,000 per year  to dispose of the garbage of less  than 15,000 people. Research into  the costs of this regional district  and those of other areas reveal that  we are getting a good deal but it  could be improved.  The cost of the start up program  amounts to a five per cent increase  at first. This will show if we, as a  community, can reduce our  disposal costs by 15 to 20 per cent  in the future, and also employ more  people, not fewer.  One of the complaints most often  voiced is that our service is being  cut in half while the service will  cost more.  The Sechelt Bottle Depot calls it a  crash course in recycling. A  positive approach will make this  program successful or at least,  bearable.  We want your input, so speak up  and let us know how you feel the  service, as it progresses, can be  improved. If you have something  negative to say, give us positive  alternate ways to reduce that  almost half a million dollar bill for  garbage disposal.  And why should we bother?  What's the bother, is our reply to  that. Glass containers fill up your  in-house can faster and that means  you've got to take it out more often.  Newspapers (by the disposal company's experience) are usually put  on top of the roadside can of garbage anyway.  If you have any questions or wish  to discuss this issue with us,  please stop in for coffee and let's  talk about it. We are found opposite  the municipal hall in Sechelt, and  we're open from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.,  Monday to Saturday, or call us at  885-9009.  lOWJT  NOTICE  TOWN OF GIBSONS  LIST OF ELECTORS  Take notice that the local Court of Revision will  sit to revise and correct the List of Electors for the  Town of Gibsons at the Municipal Hall, 1490  South Fletcher Road, Gibsons, B.C. at 10 a.m. October 1, 1985 and shall continue to sit, if required,  from day to day until the list has been corrected  and revised.

Playschool openings  There are still openings for  ��� three and four year olds al Jack  and Jill Playschool, but not for  long if history repeats itself. The  playschool has had full attendance for the last sixteen years.  This impressive longevity is  due partly to the fact that the  little children love the  playschool experience, and  partly to the satisfaction of the  parents who see the results of a  great learning experience. Frequently when a child goes from  Jack and Jill into public  kindergarten he's being followed by a brother or sister going  into,Jack and,Jill.     ..   ...   Playschools receive no  government assistance, so each  year Jack and Jill has a fund-  raising project.  This year will see a repeat of  the great chicken bargain.  Orders are being taken now for  fresh grade A chickens, and a  special bulk order will allow  delivery of the birds on the very  day of their demise. For all you  parents who know what a  bargain these chickens were,  don't be disappointed. Place  vour order now with Brenda  Rand at 886-7501.  Okanagan fruit leather, that  nutritious sweet treat, is also  available from bulk at a real  bargain. Call Helen Robinson  at 886-8787 to place your order.  Do   you   sing?   Do   magic  tricks?

ExpOasis leaders  Continued from page 20  Walker stressed the importance  of both commitment and communication. He asked that if  sub-committee chairmen found  themselves without the time or  energy to be fully involved with  their committees, they should,  resign, and also asked that he be  fully informed of the plans and  workings of every committee.  "I am absolutely determined  that the ExpOasis committee is  going to do what it was set up to  do," he declared. "1 am  dedicated to making it work."  The executive committee carried a motion that Walker  could, at his discretion, replace  any sub-committee chairman  whom he felt was not able to  fulfill his duties, and asked him  to develop a procedural policy  for communications between  the sub-committees themselves  and with the executive.  The various sub-committee  chairmen  briefly  outlined  the  immediate priorities for their  groups, predominantly to learn  what was already planned for  the coming year,and to inform  residents of opportunities  available.

The Volunteer Action  Centre has a wide range of  volunteer opportunities to offer. We'll provide you with a  challenging experience while  your skills and expertise are used in special ways.  Why not try working with  other members of the community on valuable services like activities specially designed for the  handicapped, drop-ins for  parents and tots, reading to  youngsters, driving or meal  delivery for seniors or sheltered  assistance for battered women.  Learn about the services in your  community. Become an advocate for them. By getting involved, you'll broaden your  lifestyle.  If you prefer working one-to-  one, the English as a second  language program can give you  the chance to meet someone  from another culture and help  them adjust to life in Canada.  The program is just getting  underway and tutors are needed  immediately; training and  resource materials will be provided.  Now that school has resumed, elementary schools on the  Coast will be needing class  assistants to work individually  with children who need extra attention.  If you have a typewriter at  home it can be put to good use  by typing for one of our programs in Gibsons a few hours  each month.  Recycling  not easy  "This wasn't going to be a  piece of cake," said Chairman  of the Sunshine Coast Regional  District (SCRD) board, Jim  Gurney at the September 12  meeting.  He was referring to the first  week of recycling on the Coast  and the problems that were encountered.  "All in all, we've done very  well for the first time around,"  he said, "remember, recycling is  an attitude situation."  Both Directors Jon McRae  and Peggy Connor said that  they had received many phone  calls complaining of the lack of  garbage pickup, and saying that  the pickup had been at different, earlier times than usual.  There is to be a meeting on  Monday night at 7:30 p.m. in  the board room at the SCRD  offices in Sechelt to iron out  these and other problems with  the recycling committee and the  disposal contractor.  VAC can direct you to special  opportunities in line with your  interest.

Claude Richmond, Minister Responsible  The 1986  World Exposition  Vancouver  British Columbia, Canada  May 2-October 13,1986 16.  Coast News, September 16,1985  ��' < "This   whole  problem   has  gemmed from a lack of communication; after all, we're not  ��� public relations experts," said  ! Clark   Hamilton,  director  of  Scantech Resources in a conver-  ' sation with the Coast News last  ; week.  .     Scantech has been at the cen-  ! tre of controversy which arose  [ when the company moved a fish  farm   into   a   predominantly  residential area in Wood Bay,  near   Middle   Point,   without  ; warning and without any op-  ' portunity for public input. Since  ' then   the   story   has   crossed  ; Canada,   a   loosely   formed  residents'   committee  to   deal  ' with this and other foreshore  : problems has arisen and the  ��� Sunshine Coast Regional  ; District (SCRD) board has sent  ��� off a strongly worded letter of  I protest to the ministry  ! tinued. "I think it's blown out  ; of all proportion. We are not  \ trying to be unreasonable.  "We  have  been  trying  to  i organize international financing  and that took until the end of  June to finalize," he explained,  when asked why the foreshore  lease had not been applied for  until the fish were in jeopardy  from warm water conditions  and it was necessary for the  ministry to grant a rushed, temporary permit.  "We talked to lands, parks  and housing, but we couldn't  put in a formal application  because all our transactions  were not in order in time. We  could have put the fish on other  farms but our biologist told us  we shouldn't do that because it  would stress the fish too much  to move them more than is absolutely necessary."  As to the financing of the  company, Hamilton said that  there is a 25 per cent share held  by Norwegian investors, 10 per  cent by a Finnish investor, and  that the rest of the shares are  held by either Canadian citizens  or landed immigrants.

Hwy 101. Gibsons  Carsten Hagen as shareholders  the other shareholder  agreements will be drawn up by  October, said Hamilton.  Scantech has received no  government funding.  Residents are afraid that the  farm will expand to fill the entire lease area, which comprises  about four hectares, or some 10  acres.  "We will eventually have  about an acre of pens,"  Hamilton said, "there is a limit  to the number of nets you can  put in so much area. Now we  have four pens and we aim to  have 16.  "On land we are building living accommodation for the  principle who will be working at  the farm, as well as quarters for  the hired help," he continued.  "There will also be feed storage.  We are also changing the metal  decking to wood decking as  soon as possible to deal with the  noise problems.  "We see the whole project as  primarily a model farm, where  we can train people in Scandinavian methods of aquaculture  and exhibit the technology," he  said. "This site is unlike any  other in B.C., because it is in  the open water. It's very deep,  from 40 to 45 feet close to  shore, dropping off to about  150 feet further out. That's  ideal for our purposes.  "We tried to put it in Wood  Bay itself," Hamilton said,  "but the water is only 30 feet in  there but we may get into oyster  cultivation later. As for  shooting predators, we have  predator nets under and over  the pens, and electric fencing  for the otters. We are taking  every precaution.  One of the major advantages  of aquaculture in this site,  Hamilton explained, is that it is  close to the market.  "Norwegians shipped 6,000  tons to the U.S. last year and as  our fish becomes available we  should be able to pick up some  of that. Right now they are paying from $1.50 to $2.00 a kilo  for air freight from Europe and  from here we can send the fish  in ice to California by truck.  They've done all the ground <  work, if you like, it's up to us to  fill in the gaps."  It was full steam ahead on sidewalk construction in Sechelt last week, with work progressing both on  Trail Avenue near the library and on Hwy 101, from Wharf Road to the hospital.  Fran Burnside photo  For SD #46  More computers urged  by Maryanne West  Bob Cotter, principal of West  Sechelt elementary school and  chairman of the school district's  computer committee made a  strong plea to trustees at last  week's meeting to keep to the  timetable for lowering the ration of students per computer in  each school. The aim is to lower  the ratio to 15-1 by 1988.  This district got an early start  in the use of computers and has  considered them important  enough to be funded from  capital funds rather than leaving  them to fund raising projects  and this has made the Sunshine  Coast one of the leading  districts in providing computer  training for students from  kindergarten through grade 12.  There will be an increasing  demand for computers and  word processing as a tool for  general school work, as distinct  from computer science courses  at the secondary level as the  students who have become  familiar with computers in  elementary school reach grade  eight.  The committee, which co:  ordinates computer use in the  district, recommends a com-  r cputer resource teacher for every  ���^ school j a pilot project involving  a network lab at Sechelt elementary, and a liaison group to en  sure smooth progression from  elementary to secondary school  in computer skills.  Questions were asked about  the reliability of cheaper Apple  "clones" - computers which are  compatible with the Apple  system, the facilities for  maintenance and whether there  are enough experienced teachers  in the field. Mr. Cotter explained that the BCTF provides a  training program which can be  arranged for in service instruction.  The,decision as to the deployment of non-shareable capital  funds was tabled to the next  meeting.  September is the month of  truth for the student enrolment  projections from last year, and  the gains at the secondary level  offset the losses in elementary  schools resulting in a total of  2,678 students, one less than  forecast. Kindergartens  registered 252 five year olds, exceeding the June projection by  13. The numbers of students in  each age grouping ranging from  nine grade sevens at Bowen  Island to 52 grade three's at  Sechelt makes the beginning of  the school year busy for administrators working out the  most effective deployment of  available teachers. Assistant  Superintendent Nicholson  reported that all schools were  off to an enthusiastic start.  The board studied the  management committee's  reports on the school bus system  and on the capital expenditures  recommended for the coming  year which must be submitted to  the government for approval.  This includes money for renovations now considered a top  priority having been let go for  several years of restraint.  Bus problems have been compounded by the acquisition of  two new buses of 54-seat capacity to replace the old 72 seaters.  Where last year it was possible  to pick up almost all the secon-  dar students who wanted to  ride, the limited seating on the  new buses means that either  some students must walk or  some extra loops must be funded from the already strained  operational budget.  Crum resigns  Chairman of the Economic Development Commission,  Russell Crum, has given notice of his intention to resign from  his post. He cites his increasing work-load and a possible conflict of interest as reasons for his intended resignation.  *>��^  UP TO  40��/c  LESS  than regular prices  sold at major  department stores.  $  FACTOBV  *  0ISCOUNT *  Pfl/CES  ���r 66  Installation  on all Vortical  Blind orders  ��� Hundreds of designer col*  ours and textures to com-'  element any decor.  * Fa&t Delivery  ��� Bring In your window  measurements or call ua for  ir>$e *shop-at-home' service.  or more information on the Coast Guard  'lowing Policy or .safety precautions, write:  'THINK PREVENTION".

Coast News, September 16,1985  A haven for the troubled  by Dianne Evans  "Power and control, that's  the issue," and that's at the  source of a hidden crime which  affects more than one out of ten  Canadian women every year.  That crime is assault, by husband or boyfriend, and it has  been, until recent times, a crime  that has been successfully kept  under wraps, through fear, and  a reluctance on the part of the  police and the courts to rally to  ilie defence of the battered  woman.  Here on the Sunshine Coast  there is an agency which provides help for women who find  themselves in this situation. The  Transition House, operating  under the auspices of the Sunshine Coast Community Services Society, is funded through  the Ministry of Human Resources, grants, private and community donations. Last year 52  women and 63 children stayed  at the Transition House and  twice that number of calls were  received from women in potentially dangerous relationships or  women who needed advice and  support.  Transition House also offers  support and help to women who  have been sexually assaulted,  helps with information of a  legal, medical and financial  nature and offers counselling.  The staff at Transition House  are friendly and well-qualified  to help; there are child care  workers as well as counsellors  who can advise women on how  they can take their lives and  begin to re-shape them after the  trauma of an abusive relationship.  There is an adventure  playground for the children;  there are comfortable living  areas with lots of toys and  books to read; the day I visited  was blackberry pie day and the  house smelled warm and cosy;  there's a safe and nurturing  feeling about it; people laugh,  and the policy of absolutely no  violent action makes it feel truly  safe for the children who come  to stay. No spanking is allowed,  but it's a rule that is enforced  gently; alternatives are offered,  and there isn't a censuring tone  about it.  The staff, who prefer to remain nameless for reasons of  confidentiality, so important in  a service like this, were glad to  talk about their work, as was  co-ordinator Janice Pentland-  Smith.  "There's a huge misconception that abuse is always  physical. Physical abuse is seen  as abuse, but emotional abuse is  a lot harder to deal with.  Physical bruises will heal but  emotional abuse will affect the  way you feel, perhaps forever,"  explained Janice.  "If a woman were not emotionally abused, she wouldn't  stay after she were physically  abused. Mind you, not all of the  women who use Transition  House are physically abused,  but about 80 per cent have been.  "There is a cycle to abuse;  things go along fairly well, tension builds, a fight follows, then  a beating. This is followed by a  period of remorse, maybe  counselling, and that peace may  last for a while, but then the cycle repeats itself.  "One of the questions most  often asked is why? Why do  you stay in the situation? Well,  a lot of women deny that the  abuse is occurring. If they admit  it, then they'll hate themselves  even more. Some women stay  for the sake of the children,  because they believe they need a  father. Others stay because they  believe that things will get better. But once abuse begins, it  almost never gets better."  One of the major problems  involved in abuse, whether it be  of women or children, is its  repetitive nature. Most abusers  were themselves abused as  children and repeat the  behaviour.  "One man we talked to, someone who had been beating  his children severely, said to me,  'I was hit as a kid, and it didn't  do me any harm!' Of course it  did, why else did he have the  problem, why else were his kids  suffering the abuse?"  "Kids are glad to come here;  for some it's the first time  they've ever lived anywhere  without the threat of violence.  "Sometimes all of us are  overwhelmed with the complexity of it, with the complicated  nature of each situation. It really is a question of power and  control, and until we change  society's attitudes, that of the  one-up, one-down type of rela  tionship, it's hard to see things  changing.  "No one should be abused,  no one should have to stay in an  abusive situation. And the  worse your situation is, the  worse your need for help. At  least 60 per cent of the women  who use Transition House  return, but each time you come  back you're a little bit stronger.  You have to prove to yourself  that you've really tried to make  your relationship work. There  shouldn't be any guilt involved  if you want to go back to try  again."  Transition House also offers  counselling after the relationship is over. That, according to  Janice, is often the hardest time,  and there are programs being  developed for use in high  schools where many of the patterns which lead to abuse in  later years are formed.  The services offered by Transition House are confidential; if  you are suffering physical, emotional or sexual abuse or have  been in such a situation and are  trying make a new life, call  885-2944 at any time of day or  night. There is also a drop-in  group each Wednesday night at  the Mental Health office in  Sechelt, from 6:30-8:30 p.m.  Call 885-2944 for more information.  Bruce Mosley has been nominated to the Economic  Development Commission to replace Irene Lugsdin who has  resigned in order to take on her new position as Community  Development Officer. John Burnside has also been  nominated to replace Ron Neilson of Gibsons as that town's  representative on the Commission.

"We need to let the community be aware of what we're  about and exactly where we're  going," stated Walker.  Number one on Walker's list  of 12 objectives for the executive committee was "Encourage the economic development of the Sunshine Coast taking advantage of the opportunity presented by Expo 86".  followed immediately by  "Motivate the people of the  Sunshine Coast (regardless of  race, creed or political persuasion) to work together to produce prosperity, especially  through tourism."  Increasing participation and  pride in both the public and  private sectors was emphasized, as well as raising the level of  attractiveness and hospitality of  the Sunshine Coast community.  Specified were the development  and promotion of existing  tourist attractions (ie. fishing,  hiking,   parks,   museum,   etc.)  and the development and coordination of special cultural,  athletic and competitive events.  The importance of coordinating and accommodation  available to visitors . was  recognized. And emphasized  was the need to promote and  co-ordinate adequate transportation systems throughout the  Sunshine Coast.  Crucial to assisting all these  endeavours was ihe need for  fund-raising.
