 i/iOfaftifl. ��>.C .  J1} M *V IX*  SL-i*.  by Peter Trower  My brain is still a bit jangled  from the events that took place  in Sechelt on the weekend of  August 16. Let us say that the  Writers' Festival, in its third  year, definitely came of age.  Here are some personal impressions of events both  scheduled and otherwise, that  occurred over those hectic three  days:  Friday August 16. Yvonne  and I drive to Porpoise Bay to  meet my longtime friend and  poetic mentor, Al Purdy. He  deplanes on schedule around 1  p.m., accompanied by another  white-maned writer named  Leon Rooke whom I don't  know, but soon will. Purdy,  who has grown a distinguished  moustache since 1 last saw him,  seems in rare form. He gets  squared away at his hotel and  we head for Gibsons to hash  over old times and new. That  evening, we reconnoitre at  Greene Court where Purdy is  scheduled to read.  1 introduce the old maestro to  a large expectant audience and  he   proceeds   to   demonstrate  what   modern   poetry   is   all  about. Purdy is totally at home  on a stage. He towers over the  podium   like   a  great   grandfather  lion,   declaiming  gems  from his vast repertoire in a  loud laconic voice. He reads old  classics like Lament For The  Dorsets.and new work like Piling Blood from his latest collection. Much of Purdy's output is  extremely funny. No exception  is a double-entendre piece about  frigate birds on the Galapagos  Islands that elicits appreciative  roars from the crowd. Purdy  concludes the generous offering  by answering questions  from  the audience and reading a couple more requests.  The final event of the day is a  wine-tasting session that  Yvonne and I had planned to  attend. But Purdy's traditional  want after a reading is to beetle  for the nearest bar and talk  poetry with a group of fellow  practitioners. Since there are  several other poets in attendance, including Barry McKin-  nen, David Phillips and Steve  Noyes, editor of Prism International, we elect to do this. John  Burnside, no stranger to poets  and poetry, comes along and we  have a spirited session.  Saturday August 17. Leon  Rooke, novelist and short story  writer is doing his thing at 10:30  a.m. Yvonne and I head back to  Sechelt to catch his performance. I know, little about  Rooke beyond the fact that tie  wrote a unique book called  Shakespeare's Dog but Yvonne  has heard him read on the  Gzowski show and assures me  that 1 will be impressed.  "Impressed"  is hardly  the.  word for it. When Rooke launches into his astonishing act, I  am well and truly blown away as  are all  present,  including At-  Purdy. Leon Rooke is a writer  of enormous power and im- ;1  agination but he has the added y  edge of being a world-class performer. Evidently, he majored ,  in drama during his college days  and it certainly shows.  Rooke launches a flat-out  assault on the audience from  almost the first word. He lifts  the phrases from the page, .invests them with glittering life .  and literally hurls them at the  crowd. Rooke begins with a  moving piece about a distraught ,  V  girl fleeing through the countryside from her mother's  death-bed. As the piece unfolds,  the character of the mother  emerges through the girl's disjointed thoughts.  The second  selection  from  Rooke's   best-known   work  |   Shakespeare's Dog, is a genuine  | stunner   that   almost   beggars  ���  description. It deals with the  I disappearance and death of the  T young dog's mother as seen  ';' through canine eyes and is unaccountably strange and moving.  ; At�� least one woman in the au-  y diehce is in tears by the time  v Rpoke is finished;  y The third and longest piece is  a total change of pace. Rooke  y takes us for a trip to a disco  y with   an   aging  swinger   who  \ wants desperately to be hip. It is  fa   humorous   tour-de-force,  y highlighted   by   snatches   of  If popular   songs   fronf  several  y eras, that Rooke delivers very  y effectively.  The piece  is^ not  ^ without a few dark undertones,  .4 chiefly in the character of an  obnoxious redneck, the bon vi-  ���._ vant  encounters on  his  tipsy  ramble. Another minor master-  -'' piece.  Rooke ends his amazing  stand with another excerpt from  Shakespeare's Dog that  dramatizes a verbal assault on  the Bard by his wife, Ann  Hathaway. The barrage of  stinging, funny invective is  flawlessly delivered.  At some point during  Rooke's classic performance,  Purdy remarks that: "You  sound like a whole orchestra up  there!" It is no word of a lie.  Following the readings, Rooke  parries questions for awhile and  exits to thunderous and well  deserved applause.  The next item on the agenda  is a panel discussion on "Why  B.C. writers are starving."  Since this a virtually the story of  my life, I definitely plan to attend. But I get into a fascinating  discussion with Rooke, Purdy  and several other writers at an  outside table and can't tear  myself away. Thus, I miss this  segment of the program. Had I  been there I would certainly  have laid much of the blame on  the blatantly anti-intellectual  bias of a certain government in  Victoria. Even right-wing  Alberta,   recently   allotted  $800,000 worth of lottery income to the Arts while Bennett  and his cronies pour everything  into the sinking fund called EXPO. But I wasn't there and  anyhow, I digress.  Jim Taylor, the sports writer  is speaking next and, having  become a born-again jock a few  years back, I attend this talk  with Yvonne. It proves very  worthwhile. If Taylor ever gets  tired of cranking out sports columns, he could probably find  work as a stand-up comic. He is  a very witty man with a Bob-  Hope-style delivery.  Taylor freely admits that he is  no jock himself but he certainly  knows the business of profes- -  sional athletics backwards. He  reels off funny anecdotes about  the sometimes-boneheaded  heroes of hockey rink and football field, including the time he  was almost punched-out by a  mountainous fullback for some  disparaging remark. Taylor alsc  has some funny yarns about his  literary collaboration with  Wayne* Gretzky's father. It is  another rewarding session of a  totally different sort'. .  Please turn to page 12  Against B.C. Hydro's use of Round up  Pesticide appeal heard  in marathon session  by Dianne Evans  Brainstorming is what these people were doing last Thursday, trying to come up with ideas about how we  can develop business opportunities and make our communities and local events attractive and known to  those who will visit Expo '86 next year. All coast residents are invited to become involved - there are areas  to suit all kinds of interests, and time is of the essense. Next meeting of the EspOasis Committee is Tuesday, (tomorrow) August 27, 7 p.m. in the SCRD board room. ���Fran Burnside photo  Co-operation stressed  Expoasis plans underway  by Fran Burnside  "I hope we can all see fit to  pull together to create prosperity for the Sunshine Coast,  regardless of race, religion or  politics," concluded Captain  Vic Walker in his opening  remarks to the crowd of 60 attending last Thursday's ExpOasis meeting at the Bella  Beach Motel. "Our success  depends on our effort and  organization."  Noting that the ExpOasis  committee is motivated by a  concern with improving the  local economy, and viewing  tourism as an alternative to the  traditional economic supports  of forestry, mining and Fishing,  Walker suggested, "There will  be one hell of a lot of people  drifting around Vancouver  looking for something to do  (during Expo). Let's bring them  to the Sunshine Coast."  These phrases hardly sounded new emanating from the ExpOasis committee, but their  delivery certainly was. A soft-  spoken, unassuming, warm and  open man, newly appointed  committee chairman Walker  seemed to be issuing a friendly  invitation to everyone to bring  their friends and let's see if we  can make something out of this  opportunity.  Walker's approach is  definitely that of a team player  and it seems apparent that he  likes to work "with" people.  All ideas and suggestions are  welcome and as the crowd  broke into "brainstorming"  sessions assistant Carol Oslie  assured everyone, "Don't  worry if your idea sounds crazy  or irrational, just toss it in. It  can  be changed  or dropped  later, and it may give someone  else an idea, too."  Walker is aware that time is  becoming of the essence in  organizing for Expo, he said in  conversation with the Coast  News, but he doesn't feel the  group should make any important decisions for another three  or four weeks, during which  time the various sub-committees  will continue to "brain-storm"  and formulate ideas and plans.  With a different person being  asked to act as spokesperson for  each group at each meeting, he  feels the groups will have a  chance to learn the capabilities  of their various members, and  will then be in a much better  position to elect a chairperson  for that committee, someone  who will keep the group functioning and motivated when the  various sub-committees head  out on their own to accomplish  the plans they will be formulating. *  Walker asked everyone to try  and think of other people who  could be personally invited to  join the various subcommittees.  "We have to spend time encouraging various segments of  people in our community to  volunteer to help achieve our  objectives," he said. Walker  hopes to end up with committees composed of nine official  members responsible for making decisions, with other people  helping to carry out the work  necessary.  The sub-committees include  accommodation, Coast  enhancement, special events,  outdoor recreation, business initiatives, fund-raising, publicity  and promotion, hospitality,  cultural events and calendar of  events. People living north of  Sechelt are especailly invited to  join the groups, as only four  from that area were present at  the last meeting and equal  representation from the three  major geographic areas is being  sought.  All Coast citizens who would  like in some way, large or small,  to become involved with making plans for how this area will  become an "ExpOasis" are invited to attend the next meeting,  Tuesday, August 27 (tomorrow)  at 7 p.m. in the SCRD boardroom, main floor of the Royal  Terraces, Wharf Road and  Teredo Street, Sechelt.

The meeting, which went on  for eleven hours, was chaired by  William Godolphin, whose  backgound is in clinical  chemistry and pathology; the  other members of the board  were Graham Kenyon, an environmental engineer with  Cominco and  Dr.  Patterson,  Michael Conway-Brown,  who has been involved in public  interest research for some eight  yeiars, gave evidence about the  alternate methods available to  clear unwanted vegetation. He  brought clearing saws, which  are widely used in Sweden  where herbicides are not permit-  an   organic chemist involved in  environmental control,  ted in the forests, girdling tools,  machetes and chain girdlers.

Hayward, who is a right of way  maintenance technician.  The appellants pointed out  that Roundup, whose active ingredient is glyphosate, has not  been completely tested, especially as to its effect on salmon in  the smolt stage, of growth, nor  has adequate testing been done  on the surfactant, the ingredient  in which the glyphosate is carried.

B.C. Hydro countered these  allegations by saying that the  methods they propose to use  were not likely to result in  glyphosate being absorbed into  the water systems. They do not  intend to do any aerial spraying,  Dut instead will use the injection  method whereby small capsules  containing Roundup are shot  into the tree trunk, the wipe-on  method, whereby a tree is slashed   and   a   mixture   of   the  Please turn to page 19  In Gibsons this summer  Pumps pose water problem  Sechelt makes plans  for Expo parking  Sechelt Council, during last  week's meeting considered a  new by-law that would, during  the period of Expo 86, provide  for the parking of one occupied  recreational vehicle on residential property within the village.  In other business, council announced that a representative  from the ministry of municipal  affairs will be in Sechelt on  Wednesday, August 28, at 9:30  a.m. to meet with council and  members of the Sechelt  Chamber of Commerce to  discuss what can be done to institute a downtown revitalization program for Sechelt.  Difficulties with water supply  in Gibsons this summer were  due to mechanical difficulties  with pumping equipment rather  than shortage of water, according to Town of Gibsons Works  Superintendent Ron Webber.  Webber told the Coast News  last week that Well No. 2 went  out of commission on July 7  due to pump failure. A rental  pump was installed the next day  but proved to be non-operative.  A second rental pump was installed late that same day and  re-filled the reservoirs by the  weekend of July 14.  Unfortunately this pump,  too, failed on July 18 at a time  when the Works Superintendent  estimated that demand was at  least four or five times higher  than normal demand.  The problem with Well No. 2  has since been recitified and a  third will is scheduled to come  into the system at the end of this  month.  Works Superintendent Webber said that the extremely high  demand for water was occasioned by the record dry spell and  record high temperatures, aggravated by an unusually high  number of tourists which Webber estimates boosted the  population to two or three times  its normal level.  Another contributing factor,  according to the Works  Superintendent, was the inability of the SCRD to provide Gibsons with the same amount of  water being used in the SCRD's  North Road system.  "In fact," said Webber, "the  SCRD was not able to provide  Gibsons with any water until  just recently and even now cannot provide anywhere near the  amount they are using."  Webber said that the sprinkling restrictions will stay in effect  until he is sure that the start-up  of Well No. 3 is without complications.  He mentioned that the drying  up of Chaster Creek meant that  water had to be pumped up  from the wells in the first  pressure zone, a practice usually  required only for a day or two  at a time between rainfalls.

Coast News, August 26,1985  ���5��"  Wrong direction  Last week a pesticide appeal board convened in Sechelt  to hear the strenuous objections of Pender Harbour  residents to B.C. Hydro's intention to use the herbicide  Roundup on the right of way in the Sakinaw and Ruby  Lakes area.  All of us who use electricity and pay what are substantial rates for the privilege, should be concerned at Hydro's  stubborn refusal to listen to its customers' concerns and  then to show its respect for their objections by pursuing a  less risky course of action.  Evidence heard indicated that even toxicologists  disagree about the safety of Roundup; the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has issued strict directives  on parts allowable per million in drinking water and  wildlife habitats. There have been invalid reports issued by  manufacturer, Monsanto's own research lab.  When there is doubt about the effects of a chemical on  human inhabitants and wild life, why does B.C. Hydro  persist in its pursuit of the lowest common denominator?  When there are viable alternatives available, such as are  used in Sweden where herbicides are not permitted in  forest management, why must B.C. Hydro, supported  financially by the taxpayers, expose those same taxpayers  to an uncertain chemical which may not only physically affect them immediately but may also enter the gene pool  and affect generations to come?  We have only to look at DDT, dioxin, PCB's and  thalidomide for examples of "safe" chemicals whose use  has proved to be tragic to millions of people and animals.  It's time to tell B.C. Hydro, and the other companies  who contemplate the large scale use of doubtful chemicals,  that we don't want to be guinea pigs. It's bad enough that  human beings have had to die or become victims of  hideous disease through the use of chemicals in the environment.  But why, why must we continue on the same course  when it's so obvious that it's leading in the wrong direction?

There was always more than one meat, soup, and at least  four vegetables. The crew would just walk off if the grub was no good. We earned good money back  then, close to $5 an hour, three meals a day and board.

I cannot remember its equal  though the summer of my ninth  year, 1947, is remembered as a  summer of remarkable beauty,  a thing even more rare in  Scotland than it is here .on the  Sunshine Coast.  It must, of course, end soon.  The cool evenings remind us as  do the lengthening shadows that  fall is coming, that these long  sunfilled days must come to an  end. Be that as it may and even  if the summer days come to anv  abrupt halt this week this will be  a summer against which future  summers will be measured.  September will plunge us  back into the workaday world,  no doubt. We will drag our attention reluctantly back from  the beaches and the barbecues  and refocus on the affairs of  our troubled world.  It is hard to believe that much  has improved while we have  been cavorting in the sunshine.  Though one has tried to  avoid noticing, the great cat and  mouse game between the  Americans and the Russians  seems to be going on, if  anything with ever more menacing overtones. The Russians, it  is said, are using a magic  mutagenic powder to trace the  movements of Western  diplomats. The Americans keep  firing their space shuttle aloft,  letting satellites go, repairing  satellites. Nobody ever tells us  what the satellites do and it may  be that the militarization of  space is already well underway.  In other international news,  South Africa seems finally to be  a boil on the point of bursting  and the moral dilemma for the  nations of the west is becoming  more sharply etched. To trade  or not to trade that is the question. Whether by doing business  with a nation which treats 80  per cent of its people as being  sub-human is to sustain that  gross anomaly or by taking up  sanctions against apartheid we  can by so opposing end it.  The nations of the third  world crouch under a burden of  acquired debt with the bankers  of the International Monetary  Fund insisting that the suffering  poor must suffer more in the  name of the international  monetary system.  Such a  "* summer  The killing and torturing in  the Middle East and in the nations of Central America goes  on. There seems to be no path  by which diplomacy can end the  bloodshed.  Generally, the world continues to arm itself at an  estimated cost of $1 million per  minute, as though the way to  peace could thus be found.  In Canada, our prime  minister tells us that things are  improving, and we are inclined  to hope that he is right because  the alternative is untenable in  these sunlit days.  Provincially, a strange quiet  has fallen. The battles of the recent past are fading from our  memories. Only the destruction  of poor abandoned Ocean Falls  still serves to remind us that we  are governed by people whose  imagination and thrust for progress goes no further than False  Creek. The province languishes  yet between the well-known  rock and a hard place though  the summer sun has somewhat  soothed   us   from   the   more  urgent of our concerns.  Locally, the honeymoon with  fish-farming seems to be over.  The sudden appearance of a  full-blown fish farm at Wood  Bay without benefit of public  discussion has alarmed Coast  residents and left our elected officials with the somewhat  uneasy feeling that they have  been somehow outmanoeuvred  and left irrelevant. What will  come of this the winter will tell  us.  The teachers of the province  prepare to go back to work and  the furore over education may  be waiting to be reborn.  Faced as ever with problems  apparently beyond man's solving, we must give fervent thanks  for this glorious season and that  we were spared to enjoy it.  It is, we are reminded, still a  surpassingly beautiful world  and we are here to enjoy it.  'And the elements so mixed in it  that nature can stand up before  the world and say this was a  summer. When comes such  another?'

Dylan Thomas  J  change  by Dianne Evans  The term, genetic engineering,  conjours up spectres of a slightly Frankensteinian nature and  many scientists are very much  aware that the potential for  disaster is great without the  most stringent controls, but it is  being used in efforts to aid both  the commercial fishery and the  aquaculture industry.  Seafood is one of the  cheapest sources of protein in  the world today, and it is  significant that the major producers of aquacultured fish are  Japan, China and India, countries with large populations and  shortages of food.  Doctor George Hunter, who  is now the federal aquaculture  co-ordinator, along with Doctor  E. M. Donaldson of the West  Vancouver Lab have been  pioneers in the fields of salmon  growth control, alteration of sex  and manipulation of  chromosome sets.  One of the major advantages  of this work is the way in which  declining salmon stocks can be  rebuilt. For example, in the  Canadian Journal of Fisheries  and Aquatic Sciences, Volume  39, Number 1, 1982, the  methods used whereby an all  female population can be produced are explained.  With a very small dose of androgen a female salmon will  change into phenotypic males,  having "female" milt, that is,  sperm with XX chromosomes.  Males usually contain X and Y  chromosomes. Once the female  has changed it is possible to use  the ''female'' milt to fertilize untreated females which will produce 100 per cent female offspring.  It is also possible to cause  females to change by the use of  ultra violet light which destroys  chromosomes in sperm. Although the sperm is able to fertilize normal eggs the embryos  thus produce contain only half  the normal number of chromosomes. The embryos would die  but if temperature or pressure  changes are exerted on the eggs,  the chromosomes double, pro-  ducting females whose total  genetic material comes only  from their mothers.  The advantages of this are  obvious; it would dramatically  increase the brood stock, and  would prevent the occurrence of  the 'jack' salmon, or sexually  precocious male salmon which  is too small to be of great value  to the commercial fishery.  Female fish do not mature early  as do some males.  Other experiments and  research have produced ways of  sterilizing members of the male  salmon population. Treatment  with methyltestosterone will  produce sterile salmon which  may then be released into the  wild where the salmon will grow  to a greater than normal size  and not return to the spawning  ground.  This sterilization is seen as  useful where a particular hatchery has too great a return  rate, and it is also advantageous  for the commercial and sports  Fishery, where the greater the  size the higher the price per  pound.  The ultra-violet light technique holds the promise of further  genetic engineering to produce  salmon which are bred for certain characteristics, such as  rapid growth, disease resistance  and tolerance of very cold  temperatures. These techniques  would be of great benefit to  aquaculturists who presently  have a long waiting period between the egg and the harvested  salmon. A faster growing fish  would produce a return on investment much earlier.  Research is being conducted  both in Canada and in the  United States, but much more is  needed. As the conclusion in the  Canadian Journal of Fisheries  and Aquatic Sciences says,  treatment with hormones  should be subject to regulatory  restraints and other techniques  which have been developed are  still in need of further study.  The system of life beneath the  oceans is one that is still largely  unknown; many scientists urge  caution in any manipulation of  that system. The effects of  genetically changed fish, of  changing the balance between  the sexes of fish and so on are  areas where we do not as yet  have firm, clear answers. Coast News, August 26,1985  Lv  V  <:���  Layoffs hit hard with tittle warning  Editor:  The layoff of 98 Canfor  employees could not have come  at a worse time for the Sunshine  Coast. Economically, we have  been one of the hardest hit areas  in Canada in the current recession and can ill afford the loss  of $3.5 million in direct wages  and the spinoff of jobs loss in  the service sector. Layoffs of  this scale cannot help but affect  the community, from the  businesses losing customers to  the schools losing students as  families move away.  Yet Canfor gave little warning of the extent of these  layoffs, either to its employees  or the community. Only one  week before, CPU president,  Steve Holland is quoted in the  Coast News as saying that the  layoffs would affect about 32  jobs with 10 going through attrition. This is a far cry from the  real figure of 98. Surely a good  corporate citizen would try to  lessen the impact of its decisions  on the employees and community that depend on it.  When there is little or no  discussion of corporate direction with local elected officials,  the decisions of an absentee  landlord with no real interest in  the community can make long  term municipal and regional  planning nearly impossible.  In recent weeks there has  been a great deal of publicity,  pro and con, of the Sunshine  Coast Solidarity/Joint Council  of Local Unions Economic  Plan. In view of the Port  Mellon situation, some of the  suggestions that it makes are  worth considering.  Closer co-operation between  major employers and the community would ensure that our  elected officials are at least  aware of long range corporate  plans affecting the community.  Ideally, co-operation and good  corporate citizenship might convince major employers to ease  the impact of layoffs on small  communities by deferring them,  using attrition or using early  retirement. More interaction  could unify company and com  munity into a powerful lobby  group. Aggressive lobbying by  local government and Canfor  may have secured funding for  expansion into producing fine  paper, not far-fetched considering the federal government's  $150 million, 10 year interest  free loan to save Domtar's  Windsor Quebec paper mill.  With some serious long-term  planning and reinvestment in  the industry during boom  periods, employees replaced by  automation might simply be being retrained.  Similarly, a job loss review  board might be able to force  employers to justify layoffs, in  light of profits and dividends to  shareholders verses loss of  revenue and jobs to the community. The threat of and end  to (or the offer of) tax conses-  sions or special utility rates  could be a strong motivation to  reinvest excess profits in diversification and upgrading.  In the last few weeks we have  seen the community rally  behind two B.C. Tel employees;  community meetings were held  and there was considerable  discussion about the impact of  technology, automation, centralization and good corporate  citizenship on small communities such as our own.  Representatives from B.C.  Tel. attended to explain and  justify their actions in closing  the Phone Mart. Ninety-eight  layoffs at Port Mellon will have  a far greater impact on our  community than the two from  B.C. Tel. I believe that Canfor  owes this community the same  consideration as B.C. Tel.  The questions asked at the  last public meeting still are  unanswered and become even  more relevant. A brief phone interview and report in the local  paper is simply not adequate for  a major decision of this kind. A  public meeting may not be able  to prevent the present layoff but  it might at least give us advance  warning of the nextrduhd.

Ferries' costs queried  Editor:  I have just returned to Colorado from a one month stay in  B.C. My six friends and I were  travelling in three cars heading  for Gibsons. I was in the second  car when we reached the Ferry  toll booth. Having no idea of  how much the ferry would cost,  I held out a five dollar bill.  "How many?" she asked.  "Three," I answered. "$27."  "No, three people, not three  cars!"  Luckily, through the seven of  us, we managed to scrape up the  $73 to get us across the bay.  From what I've learned of  Play Parade success  Editor:  Gibsons' first Summer Play  Parade has successfully concluded. The response to this experiment in repertory theatre  was extremely gratifying and we  believe that we accomplished  our objective of providing summertime entertainment for both  residents and tourists.  On several evenings, we had  to turn away customers because  of full houses - an indication  that a permanent theatre-home  would be well patronized. That,  of course, is our ultimate objective - to establish a permanent  "home" for theatrical productions in our town.  Those who attended the Summer Play Parade received programs that listed many, many  names and organizations under  the heading, "Acknowledgements". I hope that people took  the time to look through this  list, and to appreciate the contributions of time, energy, skills  and possessions that helped to  get our project off the ground.  To these donors, and to the  many people who supported us  by their attendance, we say  "Thank you."  Colleen Elson  Producer  Summer Play Parade  Gratitude  Editor:  This is to express our thanks  for your support of our Open  House and related publicity efforts. We appreciate your  coverage of our special events  and the space you have donated  to our multiple press releases.  April Struthers  Capilano College  B.C. Ferry, they recently  bought larger ferries (which  weren't needed), and sold them  to some company so that they  could rent them back! Not only  that, the ferries are filled to just  40 per cent capacity. The ferries  were rescheduled so that there  are now fewer runs. The last  ferry leaves for Gibsons at 9:30  at night! Left with the bill for  this expensive and unexplain-  able blunder are the residents of  B.C. who have no other choice  but to take the ferry!  Someone told me the larger,  more expensive ferries were supposed to help tourism. Being a  tourist I can truly say that it  does just the opposite. I cancelled a trip to Victoria having no  way to raise the outrageous  fare. This is not helping  tourism.  I am fortunate, for I only had  to endure B.C. Ferries for a  month. I feel sorry for the  citizens of B.C. who are forced  to live with such a mess-up.  There was a banner hanging  somewhere in Vancouver that I  saw. It said, "B.C. Transit.

Coast News, August 26,1985  Vic Walker, who has recently been appointed Chairman of the ExpOasis Committee is shown here  hosting another favourite pastime, the Sunshine Toastmaster Club. This informal meeting was held at  the Walkers' home. Regular weekly meetings will start up the first Wednesday in September at 6:30 p.m.  in the Gibsons Marine Room. ���Brad Benson photo  The controversy which has  been raging in Gibsons over the  question of signs has not yet  abated. At a committee meeting  on August 21 it was decided that  the new sign by-law, to which  the council had hoped to give  three readings at the Tuesday  night meeting, would be sent  back to Gibsons Planner Rob  Buchan for more work.  "The chamber of commerce  met," said Alderman Norm  Peterson, "and they are unhappy that it disallows third party  signs. They want third party  signs allowed somehow.  "The sign at the Marina,  which advertises the services  and goods available in Gibsons  would be construed as being illegal," he continued.  Letters have been received  from Sheila Kitson, president of  the   Gibsons   and   District  Chamber of Commerce and  Cindy Buis, Showpiece Frames,  in which last week's reports that  the new sign by-law "gives relief  to merchants" were disputed.  Kitson's letter reads in part  "Merchants do not feel that  Mr. Buchan has met and  discussed this issue with them  enough that they are at ease.  Most of them have no idea what  the present stand is....No one  has seen the rough draft of these  by-laws in circulation...it would  seem advisable to discuss it  openly with those involved.  Mayor Larry Labonte summed up the situation by saying  that "It doesn't matter what we  do, someone will fight it."  George    in    Gibsons  Metcalfes celebrate 50 years  George Cooper, 886-8520  Their fiftieth wedding anniversary was celebrated by  Olive and Percy "Chum" Metcalfe of Knight Road in a  special gathering in their home  on August 5.  Daughters Josephine Moore  of Ottawa and Monica Hautala,  Gibsons, were the hosts to more  than 50 guests who came to  wish Olive and Percy a happy  anniversary.  Letters of congratulation  were received from the  governor-general, the prime  minister, our member of parliament, and from Ed Broadbent.  Many letters were received from  friends in Canada and Britain,  and telephone calls from Lincolnshire from old-time friends,  Mr. and Mrs. Brooks, and Mrs.  Dorothy Mumby.  Among their immediate  family besides their daughters  and son, the Metcalfes welcomed to their anniversary party  three grandchildren and three  great grandchildren.  Married in Derbyshire in  1935 the Metcalfe's came to  Canada in 1953 and lived in  turn in Manitoba, Northwest  Territories, and B.C.  Percy's work as an operating  engineer has taken them to a  mine in Snow Lake, Manitoba,  to the Greater Winnipeg Water  District at the Lake of the  Woods, and to Hay River,  "Where we put in their first  piped water system to replace  the door to door delivery by  water tank."  In B.C. Percy and Olive lived  in West Vancouver when he was  employed with the Greater Vancouver Water District, and then  with the B.C. Ferry Corporation as a ship's engineer. They  have for some years now made  their home on the Sunshine  Coast.  1970 GRAD REUNION  Elphinstone grads of 1970  plan an informal reunion  gathering on the Labour Day  weekend at the Porpoise Bay  provincial park.  "Bring your own  refreshments on Saturday,  August 31," says a spokesman,  "and let us enjoy some recollections.  "We invite families to come  along, too, and we hope many  of our teachers of 1970 will join  us as well."  For other information call  Denise Lee (Quarry) at  885-2961.  STUDENTS GO FROM  BUS TO SCHOOL  Near the end of this week  both Griff Francis and Wayne  Sim end their summer project as  the operators of the Gibsons  Bus service and head out to college.  Griff is enrolled in the two-  year course in photography in  Langara College. "The course  allows me some time to decide  whether I'll specialize in studio  photography or in journalism,"  he said.  Wayne is going to the University of Victoria for a degree  course in physical education. "I  don't have to decide immediately  between  phys  ed   in  the  schools or in community recreation," said Wayne, "but I think  I prefer the latter."  When they were asked how  their first summer doing the  Gibsons Bus service had turned  out for them, both Wayne and  Griff said they hadn't made any  money for themselves but, "We  learned a lot about what a service job demands like being  punctual���no Hawaiian time  allowed."  "It was a challenge they met  very well, indeed," said Verna  Sim, Wayne's mother, "and I  hope the town generally in one  way or another, will assist this  project to continue, especially in  the summer.  "They moved well over a  thousand people," she added,  "among them seniors, young  folk, commuters, and boater  people to and from the  marina."  Don McClymont of the Meat  Market in the Cedars Plaza  said, "We saw a lot more people in our store this summer,  people who don't drive cars,  who got here by the bus."  The men with the carrier  license and the van, Terry Giannakos and Ed Hauka, said,  "We are certainly continuing  the bus run although probably  at a reduced schedule in the  winter months."

It has threatened the lives of Peter and Annie,  the friendly geese in the area,  raised by John and Susan These  and their family.  The phone number is  885-3897 in case you find the  geese. The bands are off the  geese now. They were seen last  Wednesday and it is hoped they  will migrate with the rest.  Incidentally, the male cougar  was six feet six inches from nose  to tail.  PICNIC SUCCESS  The second annual pioneer  picnic was exactly what it was  supposed to be, a neighbourly,  family get-together. From the  kids races, expertly planned and  managed by Jim Brown with  help from Reg Dickson, to the  concert after dinner performed  by Evelyn Bushell and Reg  Dickson.  The aroma of hot buttered  corn finally broke up a wild  melee that was loosely labelled a  soccer game. Sue LeNeve, our  gal in the kitchen, had gone up  the Fraser valley for the tastiest,  most tender corn ever.  Muriel Fenwick, Ernie Wood  and Phil Makow did a great job  of judging the pies. There sure  seemed to be something fishy  going on when Reg Dickson  won first prize and Jim Brown  came second with remarkably  similar apple pie. Lauralee Solli  got third with a delicious looking peach pie. All the pies back  for dessert. Nice people!  Turner Berrv introduced  Pastor de Vos, who led us in a  prayer of dedication and officially naming the park,  Whitaker Park, after its don-  nor, Ron Whitaker. Then Ron's  son, Jack Whitaker, gave a  short talk on the beginnings of  the Community Hall and park.  Finally, it was time to eat all  the great variety a pot luck dinner presents.  Randy Meketich played the  accordion for us during dinner.  This young man plays very well  and we thank him for his music.  Our congenial president,  Turner Berry, was his usual  helpful self and saw to it that  the Whitaker Park sign was  delivered, among other of his  good works.  I will take this opportunity to  thank my committee of Hilda  Costerton, Sue and Bill LeNeve,  and Lauralee Solli for dedicated  assistance. Also thanks to Jim  Brown for his ideas and enthusiasm. Thanks to Evelyn  Bushnell, Reg Dickson and  Randy Meketich, the music  makers.  The children sure appreciated  the balloons from Kal Tire and  the Community Association appreciates the Palm Dairy donation of ice cream. Thanks to  Stewart Hercus for the loan of  the skipping ropes and to Judy  LeNeve for selling tickets. There  was another Judy who helped  shuck corn and baked fabulous  cinnamon buns for the dinner.  Don't know her name but we  sure needed her help. Thanks  also to J. Clements of Gray  Beverage Company for the  generous donation of pop.  Dawn Cuthbertson won the  sports   bag   donated   by   W.  Wong, Wometco Enterprises.

For one, as a result of fierce  lobbying at the Volunteer  Firefighter's Convention in  Salmon Arm in July, the Sunshine Coast won the bid to host  the Convention in Gibsons next  year. This is a big undertaking  for the Gibsons and Roberts  Creek Fire Departments and  should draw a big crowd in Expo year.  Several people have asked  who won the Mr. Roberts Creek  Contest although his picture did  appear in the paper at the time.  The popular winner was Larry  Knowles, a.k.a. "Bongo",  a.k.a. "Pepy", a.k.a. "Le  Flame".  And awarded tthe title of  "Creekers of the Year" were  Larry and Mary Braun of  Seaview Market for all they do  for the community: selling raffle and dance tickets, taking  messages, passing on information, supplying goods and  materials, and a myriad of other  services.  Mention should be made of  recent good works by former  "Creekers of the Year". Chuck  Barnes was down regularly  mowing the grass behind the  Post Office until the hot  weather gave him a reprieve and  Ernie Fossett arranged for the  parking lot in front of the Community Hall to be extended.  Thanks to both.  SOME OPENINGS  The Rainbow Preschool still  has a few openings for three and  four year-olds starting in October.

Early bird  starts at 7:30 p.m. and regular  bingo at 8 p.m. Bring a friend.  SCHOOL STARTS  Even though we've had  weeks of hot weather it still  seems too soon for the kids to  be going back to school. Oh  well, now the adults will have  the beach to themselves.  School starts next Tuesday,  September 3, and it's only half a  day for the kids. The teachers  have the afternoon to recover  from the trauma. The school  office will be open this week for  registration and other preparations.  STEVE'S VERSATILITY  Steve Hubert's solo performance at the Roberts Creek  Legion on August 17 demonstrated why he's so popular with  all age groups.

The proposal, submitted by  Sunshine Coast Salmon and  Seafood Centre Ltd. will require the netting off of approximately one quarter mile of  shore line two miles northwest  of the Porpoise Bay government  wharf. The net will be set 200  feet from picnic sites on shore.  Trails connecting the sites will  be cut along the foreshore  esplanade, which belongs to the  village.  The proposal asked the  village to support the concept in  principal, to support the company's application for a short  term foreshore lease and to permit the cutting of access trails  through the village's esplanade.  Though council expressed  concern over its ability to control the foreshore lease over the  long term (foreshore leases are  issued by the ministry of lands,  parks and housing), it passed a  motion giving agreement in  principal, pending written approval of the ministry of environment and the department  of fisheries. At that time council  will consider granting a one year  access over the esplanade.  The project is owned by Rex  O'Brien of Royal Reach  Seafood Western Inc., which  purchased the fish packing  business of Tyee Bait two years  ago. Henry Hall of Sechelt is acting as an consultant to the project.  Royal Reach Seafood  Western is currently constructing a new plant on Wharf Road  in Sechelt where space for the  headquarters of the Salmon and  Seafood Centre will be located.  Termed a sport fishing ac-  quaculture farm in which people can enjoy the out of doors  and catch salmon or cod in a  natural setting, the venture is  estimated to employ four people, including a biologist to  answer visitor's questions. No  parking will be allowed on the  site. Instead, visitors will be  bused in from the Salmon Centre.  The company will also set up  a charter service using local  charter boats for those who  want to go after wild salmon.

ANNIVERSARY  CELEBRATION  The lovely garden and home  of Andrew and Allison Steele at  Brooke's Cove was the scene of  a happy gathering of family and  old friends to help celebrate the  Steele's  fortieth  wedding  an  niversary. The couple had been  married in England and  Allison's sister who had been  her bridesmaid was happily able  to attend.  Two married sons with their  children were there too, but a  third son was holidaying  abroad. A special touch which  was much appreciated and admired was the beautifully  decorated cake which was a  creation of the very artistic  Sylvia Blackwell of the Shop  Easy bakery. Our congratulations to Andrew and Allison  -may they have another forty  years of happiness.

Bray to be  United Church guest  The Sunshine Coast's United  Church minister, Reverend Alex  Reid, will be taking his annual  vacation in September and in  his absence the guest minister  for the five Sundays will be  Reverend R.W. Bray of Clear-  brook, B.C..  Mr. Bray is no stranger to  these parts as he and his wife,  Betty, have spent a portion of  every summer on the waterfront  near Mission Point. This year  they will be living for the entire  month at Gibsons, (886-9643),  and he will be conducting  United  Church  services  each  Sunday morning at Davis Bay  and at Gibsons.  While the Reverend Wes  Bray retired four years ago after  a ministry of forty years - in  Manitoba, North Vancouver,  Chilliwack and White Rock - he  continues to be on call for work  in the Courts of the Church and  has always been a happy choice  as a guest preacher throughout  British Columbia.

The reaction by council was enthusiastic. ���Brad Benson photo  Sechelt    Scenario  tt  Pauline" delights  by Peggy Connor, 885-9347  "PAULINE"  What a delightful evening of  theatre. Last Sunday 1 took in  the theatre-piece An Evening  with Pauline written and  directed by Betty Keller, performed by Fran and John Burnside at Greenecourt Hall in  Sechelt, August 18.  "It is not exactly a play, and  not exactly a recital. It is instead, a theatre-piece, framing  selections from Pauline's prose  and poetry in vignettes from her  career, with the main emphasis  on the men in her life and how  she made use of them to further  her own goals." That is the very  apt explanation in the program.  Fran is Pauline, never swaying from her character. When  she recites My Paddle one can  almost see her in a canoe just by  her body movements. The play  moves along through the life of  Pauline smoothly changing  from different times and situations.  John Burnside is the men in  her life and portrays each one  from the first manager Frank  Yeigh who starts her on her  career as recitalist with her own  poems. Then he was musical  hall performer with the striped  jacket and staw hat, the shy  gentlman she became engaged  'to, finally her last partner who  takes her across Canada, over  to London and down to the  United States. John disappeared and became each one of  these men.  Between the two of them they  did justice to Betty Keller's  book. When intermission came  I thought for a moment it was  the end and felt such a sense of  loss, but they carried on and  when it came to the end it was  complete and timely.  If there is a chance to see this  show, do so, and if it is to be  shown in this neighbourhood  again I'll tout it loud and long.  WRITERS' FORGE  All events were well attended  at the Festival of the Written  Arts and nothing would  guarantee the return of well  known speakers and the acceptance of others better than the  response from the public.  It was an exciting weekend in  Sechelt thanks to the Writers'  Forge Group and their friends  and supporters, the word of  their success will travel through  the  literary  world  and  bring  more and more to take part in  their festivals.  B AND P PICNIC  Saturday, August 17 was the  Sunshine Coast Business and  Professional Women's Club's  annual picnic held at Porpoise  Bay campsite. Visiting club  members from the Lower  Mainland, Coquitlam, Nor-  thshore, Surrey, Vancouver,  Victoria, Richmond and from a  newly formed New Westminster  club which is picking up where  the old one ended.  Many came especially to pay  homage to a retiring club  member Adele deLonge who  served as regional director, B.C.  president and a member of the  National Federation of Business  and Professional Women. A  strong worker and supporter for  the local club.  Adele is well known in  Sechelt having served as alder-  woman on the Sechelt Council,  as library worker in the Sechelt  library, the Sechelt Seniors, the  Greenecourt Senior Citizens'  housing and good friend to  many.  Mayor Joyce Kolibas brought  greetings from the village of  Sechelt and Director Peggy  Connor, Vice Chairman of the  Sunshine Coast Regional  District Board saluted the  members and visitors.  Gwen Robinson, president  and her fellow members put on  an   excellent   picnic   lunch.  The visiting ladies had time to  visit Sechelt and enjoyed the  festive   air   provided   by   the  Writers' Forge.

The radio  is believed to have been stolen  between June 15 and August 14  from his boat while moored at  Smitty's Marina.  On August 16, Maureen  Emerson reported the theft of  $350, believed to have been  stolen from her purse while she  was at Elphie's Cabaret. Police  would appreciate the assistance  of anyone who might have information regarding this theft.  A Pratt Road resident  reported the theft of four  prawn traps and 500 feet of line  on August 18. The equipment,  valued at $250 was stolen from  the Shoal Channel area.  Two separate thefts of gas  cans were reported to police on  August 22 from Keats Island.

Museum aims for  excellence  bv Tam Johnson  Your regional museum is  now one of the notable  museums in British Columbia.  The new executive is anxious to  take it from the notable class to  the exceptional class, especially  for Expo '86.  Unfortunately our acting  curator, Marilyn Tentchoff,  who has done so much for the  Museum in the past several  years, entirely on a voluntary  basis, will be conducting  mariculture courses until next  June.  In order to keep the museum  open a few days a week to accommodate visiting school  classes and others, as well as to  continue work on the various  displays, we would like to ask  for volunteers from both  members     and    potential  members.  We would particularly like  people who are interested in art  work similar to water colour  murals; also for people who  remember the use and setting of  the very large number of  pioneer artifacts that have been  donated by local citizens.  In addition to monitoring the  museum during open periods  we would like the participation  of interested people who would  like to contribute to the authenticity and aesthetic quality of  museum displays.  If you are interested please  contact the museum at 886-8232  from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and give  us your name, address, phone  number, and preferred day or  days of the week that you will  be available from 2 to 4 p.m.  We are looking forward to  meeting you.

Coast News, August 26,1985  WM&\^&^S&^MS^MB  At the Twilight  [ Mythology, magic and  animation combine to bring a  slightly menacing, always exciting movie from the Disney  studios, starting this week on  Wednesday, August 28 at 8  ��.m.  i The Black Cauldron has been  in the planning stages for the  ast 10 years and it has taken  ive years to do the animation;  ijt has been developed from a  series of five Newbery award-  vdnning children's books by  Lloyd Alexander, published in  the 1960's.  ;' The tales are based on Welsh  legends and tell the exploits of  taran, an assistant pig-keeper  who wants to become a hero.  . Aided by motley crew composed of his mentor Dallben, a  princess, Hen Wen, a pig who  can see into the future and a  furry creature by the name of  Gurgi, Taran battles evil, and  comes eventually to realize that  being a hero is not always what  life is about.  Rated PG, it is not for  children under five, although  some have enjoyed it; it may be  frightening to a small child.  Following The Black  Cauldron's run which ends at 7  p.m., Saturday August 31,  beginning on the same day at 9  p.m. comes Mel Gibson in  another Mad Max movie. This  time he stars with the dynamic  Tina Turner in Beyond  Thunderdome, an adventure  story set in a bleak future which  we saw vividly depicted in Road  Warrior and Mad Max.  The movie carries a warning  of some violence and coarse  language, and runs until  September 3.

SUNDAY SEPT.   1   - Open  for  Darts, Pool & Horseshoes  for Legion members and their families  by Peter Trower  Continued from page 1  There is a two-hour gap between Jim Taylor's humorous  talk and the star turn of the  weekend - the advent of Peter  Gzowski. Yvonne and I go  looking for Purdy who has  wandered off. We check Gilligan's Pub. Purdy is not there  but several other Festivalites  are. We talk with Rick An-  tonsen, general manager of  Douglas & Mclntyre; Ross  Westergard, membership chairman of the B.C. Federation of  Writers; Trevor Caralan, poet  and former editor of  WestWorld, and others. The  town is crawling with writers.  Eventually, we slip away, grab  some supper at a cut-rate  restaurant and head off to catch  the great Gzowski.  This event has been so heavily  pre-sold, the Writer's Forge has  been obliged to reschedule it at  the Sechelt Elementary School  gym. We arrive there early but  the large hall is already half full.  Eventually, almost every chair is  taken. Local writer, Edith Iglauer, who has known Gzowski  since his tenure as editor of  Macleans in the 1960's, gives  him a witty introduction.  Gzowski, rumpled, bearded  and congenial, mounts the  stage. He is becoming in his  middle years, more like a great,  friendly bear all the time.  Gzowski, as he is quick to recount, had a rough time getting  here at all. His plane was  delayed for three hours at the  Toronto airport, due to a computer breakdown. But he has  muddled through to Sechelt at  the eleventh hour, much to  everyone's relief. Gzowski,  definitely one of the most relaxed characters this side of Perry  Como, has not allowed thei  delays to erode his sense of  humour.  Gzowski   launches   into   a  long,   rambling   and   totally  delightful monologue about a  great   many  things.   He  tells  humorous tales about his early  days as a journalist. He talks  about his first radio career as  host of This Country In The  Morning.   He   describes   the  traumas of doing live television  for three years on 90 Minutes *  Live,   and   how   the   image  makers tried to turn him into a  poor man's Johnny Carson. He  reflects  on  his  years  in  the  wilderness, following the demise  of his television show, when he  did a newspaper column and  wrote several books. And he  celebrates his triumphant return  to radio on Morningside - a  move that revitalized his career,  garnered   him   several   awards  and made him the most popular  broadcaster in Canada.  There is a laid-back, boyish  enthusiasm about Peter  Gzowski's approach to life, that  communicates as well in person  as it does on radio. He comes  across as a genuinely nice guy -a  very human being indeed. The  crowd loves him and Peter  Gzowski loves them right back.  He holds the stage for almost  two hours and there is seldom a  dull moment.  The Gzowski show ends to  heavy applause and we all troop  back to Green Court where  there is a wine and cheese party.  Sunday August 18. Last day  and an early start. Don  Williams, producer of The  Beachcombers, is giving a symposium on script writing at 9:30  and we don't want to miss it.  Don Williams is another tall  easygoing type with a relaxed,  straightforward manner. I have  known him vaguely for some  years. He is outlining exactly  what  it  takes  to  produce  a  saleable   script    for   The  Beachcombers. It is, Williams  warns, by no means as simple as  it looks. It is no longer a closed  shop, however. When Williams  took over the series, one of his  first moves was to break up the  "stable" of writers who had  hogged   most   of   the   script-  writing work for years. It has  resulted in much fresh input and  a more realistic approach to the  whole concept.  Williams confesses that his  pet obsession is with beginnings  and endings, particularly the  latter. He has seldom produced  a show with an ending that  totally satisfied him. Once  Williams did receive a script  with what he deemed a perfect  ending. The problem was that  the rest of it was seriously flawed. Williams assigned a couple  of other writers to work with  the author - to no avail. They  were unable to resolve the difficulties. Finally, in desperation,  Williams took  a crack  at it  himself. He couldn't make it  work either and reluctantly  abandoned the whole idea. "It  is still the best ending I've ever  seen," he says wryly.  The scripts Williams buys for  each year's 20 episode season  divide into three categories. Ten  are action/adventure; 5 are  melodramas and 5 are comedies. He cites the last group as  being by far, the hardest to  write.  Undoubtedly the most offbeat and controversial script  Williams ever produced during  his tenure was How Long Does  A Butterfly Live? by my old  friend, Bob Hunter. I was in  touch with Hunter at the time  he wrote this one and he is still  amazed that Williams, ever  bought it. Butterfly violates all  the rules. It deals with guilt and  death - hardly the usual light-  hearted Beachcomber fare.  "Every one thought I was  crazy," Williams admits, " but  I took a gamble and the show  went over very well."  Many people, in the audience  are scribbling in scratch pads.  They all want a piece of the  CBC action. Maybe no one in  the place will ever succeed in  selling a script to Williams but a  good number of them are obviously going to try. And  Williams has certainly laid out  the ground rules plain and simple.  Don Williams ends his  highly-informative talk by running a typical Beachcombers  episode. It is a "soft" segment,  longer on plot and characterization than jet-boat action, and  deals with a phoney psychic and  her partner who bilk the scheming but gullible Relic.  The last speaker of the  Festival is cooking writer,  James Barber, more commonly  known in recent years as "The  Mushroom Man". I have a  peripheral acquaintance with  Barber from the Vancouver  magazine circuit and we exchange pleasantries.  Barber, familiar to most of  the audience from his television  appearances, is a rumpled,  ebullient man with a puckish  sense of humour. He acquits  himself well at the podium, trotting out amusing anecdotes like  the skilled raconteur he is.  Barber was a successful businessman until a serious accident  hospitalized him for a year and  prodded him into journalism.  Appropriately enough, James  Barber's talk segues directly into a buffet lunch, prepared by  the tireless ladies of the Writer's  Forge. The food is delicious  and, in deference to Barber, is  themed mostly around  mushrooms.  Following the meal, Yvonne  and myself are conscripted to  judge the haiku and limerick  contests, a task we performed  the previous year. There are  some witty entries but we finally  weed out three in each category.  I am in the process of reading  the winners on the stage when  James Barber, on the way to  catch a plane suddenly rushes  up and gives me a peck on the  cheek. Barber, a demonstrative  man, is known for this sort of  thing. I assure the crowd that  we are just friends.  Shortly after this, Yvonne  and I take our leave. I don't  want to meet any more writers  for at least a day or two.  Literary overkill.  Now, in retrospect, I would  like to personally thank Betty  Keller and the Writers' Forge  for making the whole thing  possible. May the tradition continue. It was a wonderful wordy  weekend.  t��-<L^m.��^<ii*'Li--i'-^^'L^rCTr  Quote of the Week  Thai which the Lord hath ordained as  the sovereign remedy and mightiest instrument for the healing of all the world is  Ihe union of all its peoples in one universal cause, one common Faith.

Louise Leroux has been  studying voice for four years at  the Victoria Conservatory of  Music where she has sung many  roles in the Opera Workshop.  This past year she was a finalist  in the Victoria Music Festival  Rosebowl Competition.  Carl had his first piano  lessons with Sydney Redman in  Sechelt and from there went on  to obtain a Bachelor of Music  degree from UBC. For the past  r  two years he has been at the  Victoria Conservatory of Music  studying piano with Winifred  Scott Wood.  The program will include  songs by Schubert, Mozart,  Bizet, Dvorak and Barber, as  well as numbers by Gershwin,  Jerome Kern and Leonard  Bernstein.  Admission will be by donation (suggested at $2), although  anyone who wishes to attend  but lacks the means will be  equally welcome. Refreshments  will be served during the intermission. This promises to be a  varied recital by two talented  young artists who will doubtless  enjoy the opportunity to entertain.  Pronto's Steak, Pizza and  Spaghetti House is tucked comfortably behind the Cedars Inn  in the Cedars Plaza across  Highway 101 from Sunnycrest  Mall in Gibsons. Whether for  dinner or lunch, alone or in  large groups, clients of Pronto's  find a charming, pleasantly appointed dining space where the  service is unobtrusive but unfailingly friendly and helpful.  The luncheon menu is among  the most reasonably priced on  the coast with an adequate  selection of luncheon specials.  During a recent visit my companion ordered the lasagna lunch  special and pronounced herself  more than satisfied. I was particularly hungry that day and  availed myself of the opportunity to order from the regular dinner menu. The New York steak  I enjoyed was exquisitely cooked and tastefully presented on a  bed of Pronto's wonderful rice.  More recently we ate a late  dinner at Pronto's after a busy  day. Within moments of being  seated and ordering we were enjoying a savoury and piping hot  bowl of mushroom soup, selected from a choice of appetizers which included  scallops, Greek, Ceasar and  green salads, escargots and  French onion soup.  There is a full and friendly  assortment of beverages on the  wine list. On this occasion we  contented ourselves with a bottle of the house red wine, a very  acceptable and modestly priced  Toscano.  For our main course I went to  the top of the menu for a very  generous portion of sirloin steak  and lobster (for less than $15),  while my companion waxed  lyrical in praise of the special of  the day, a most generous cut of  pork tenderloin which, like my  steak and lobster, was served  with a scrumptious baked  potato and finely cooked carrots.  We finished off a splendid  meal with some exquisite  cheesecake, washed down with  constantly replenished cups of  coffee. Cappuccino and  espresso are available. The  whole enjoyable outing cost us  less than $40.  Pronto's provides a balanced  and varied menu and in many  visits we have found the food to  be of uniform high standard in  both taste and presentation.  Happy family groups can frequently be seen dining out and  children's portions are available  in lasagna, spaghetti and pork  chops. There is a separate dining area for large groups and  again it is possible for quite  large groups to dine generously  without stinting and have one  member pick up the tab without  flinching or mortgaging the old  homestead.  From the thirty varieties of  pizza, (including vegetarian), to  the home-made fettucini and  the barbecue chicken and  souvlaki to the seafood and  meat dishes at the top of the  menu, Pronto's give good value  and fine fare and is a most  friendly place to lunch or dine.

There is something for  everyone here; from the realistic  and humourous drawings of  birds and cats to the semi-  abstracts of rock faces and canyons; from the sentimental affection of a work such as  Winter Mst Unveils to the  dramatic interpretations of  Tolkein's legends as in Bridge  of Khazadum.  Accompanying Kevin  McEvoy's show is a stunning  display of pottery by Robert  Shoizaki. Consisting of  porcelain, stoneware and raku  pieces, and using glazes that  range from rich browns and  reds to pearly pinks with gold  and lustre, Shiozaki's work will  dazzle not only the ordinary  viewer but visiting potters. Incidentally, Shoizaki's work can  usually be seen at the Shadow  Baux Gallery on Cowrie Street  in Sechelt, the Gallery which  represents him on the Coast.  The McEvoy and Shiozaki  exhibition is on until September  8. Also don't forget that Kevin  McEvoy will be giving a free  demonstration of the  lithography process at the Arts  Centre on Wednesday, August  28 at 7 p.m.  Channel Ten  Thursday, August 29  7 p.m.  1.

In an interview with the  Coast News while attending the  Sechelt campus' open house last  Tuesday, Dr. Jardine said the  new centre will be a joint project of Capilano and Malaspina  Colleges and will hopefully be  opened this fall.  The project has just received  a $100,000 grant from the province's $5.8 million fund for  economic renewal.  Dr. Jardine said there will be  no duplication of Continuing  Educations^ very successful ac-  quaculture course, whose purpose is to give hands-on training  and experience to people intending to work on fish farms.  Though the centre's activities  have not been specifically set  yet, Dr. Jardine predicted some  of its services will include  workshops for people contemplating going into aquaculture and basic information  and advice. Aquacultue experts  may possibly be available at the  centre two to three days a week.  Dr. Jardine pointed out that  ��� AUTOMOTIVE ���  NEED TIRES?

He has met with Irene  Lugsdin, -the Community  Development Officer to begin  the process of seeking the advice  of other community groups on  the coast. "We will be contacting them to find out if there is  anything the college can contribute to help," he said.  Dr. Jardine added that they  are interested in using their  resources to help "become a  part of the economic renewal of  the community."  He cited the example of Edmonds Community College in  Edmonds, Washington, where  the concept of "business incubation" was utilized.  The president of the college,  Tom Neilson, took steps to  fight the community's economic  recession by renting a large vacant warehouse and inviting in  people with new business ideas  to set up their operations.  In the first year they paid virtually no rent, but had business  advice and services available on  location. Rents were gradually  increased until by the third year  the businesses were either no  longer in existence or were successful, had "hatched", and  were ready to leave.  It is concepts such as this that  Dr. Jardine is asking the community to consider.  Drinks on Trapper  by Brad Benson  /   have   trapped   up   in   the  Brandywine,  In  the  Cariboo,  panned for  gold;  But now I'm in civilization,  For I am growing old.  Untitled - Trapper Jack Smith  Trapper Jack, adventurer  and poet, wrote this while living  in Gibsons shortly before he  died. He landed in Gibsons by  misadventure, but found he liked it for its closeness to the sea  and the companionship of other  kindred souls at the local pub.  Now too old and sick for further adventures, it was in Gibsons that Trapper chose to live  out his final days.  / have sailed the seas over.  As a sea happy rover;  Now I've come to snug  harbour,  And my sailing is over.  Snug Harbour  Trapper Jack Smith  Born Jack E. Smith in Ontario, he was 62 years old when  he died in St. Mary's Hospital  on July 30, 1984.  Trapper Jack did not go easily. He first went into hospital  almost a year before he finally  TRAPPER JACK  died and those who knew him  thought that first trip was to be  his last. However, in between  his moving back and forth between rooming houses and  Shorncliffe, he was to be in and  out of the hospital many times  during the next year.  Despite his trouble with the  emphysema that racked him  with coughing fits and robbed  him of a decent night's sleep,  Trapper kept up his spirits and  somehow found the energy to  keep coming back to Gramma's  Pub to enjoy his beer and  reminisce with friends.  It was his association with his  friends at Gramma's that led  him to decide, shortly before he  died, to leave them something  fitting to remember him by.  He put his bequest in his will.  That will has now been legally  probated and his wish will be  honoured, but it was so unusual  that the Probate Court Registry  asked to retain a copy for their  "unusual wills file".  "Drinks on Trapper." That's  what he wanted and that's how  it will be.  So, starting about 2 p.m. next  Wednesday, September 4, Chris  Danroth, Manager of  Gramma's Pub in lower Gibsons will begin the ceremony of  serving a drink on Trapper to  everyone in the house.  For his friends, there will be a  special short ceremony just  before the free drinks when Don  Russell, a long time friend of  Trapper's, will commit some of  his ashes to the waters off  Gramma's pier.  Trapper Jack's unusual will is  no more unusal than his life  was. Next week: some of Trapper's background, his love for  his last wife, Nellie and his exploits on his last boat, the Ladv  Germaine.  Cooper's Green volunteers  "There are a lot of people  willing to volunteer hours of  work in the park," said Area B  Director Peggy Connor at the  parks committee meeting at the  Sunshine Coast Regional  District (SCRD) office August  22.  1   The park in question is newly  acquired Cooper's Green and  Planner Jim Johnstone raised  the issue of what direction to  take in its development.  "We need direction from the  board for the designer to  follow," he said and suggested  that an open house on the site  would be one way of gauging  public opinion.  The board agreed that this  was a good idea and also decided that a questionnaire to be  published in the local  newspapers would give park  users from every area an opportunity to express their views.  _k_M_gi_y_i__>| ft_MUt'  Business Directory  ��� MISC SERVICES ���  VANCOUVER-SECHELT PENINSULA  JERVIS INLET  1                           HORSESHOE BAY-LANGDALE               1  EARLS COVE-SALTERY BAY  Lv Horseshoe Bay  Lv Langdale  Lv Earls Cove  Lv Saltery Bay        H  7:30 am *3:30pm  ���9:30          5:30  6:20 am    2:30 pm y �� E2  ���8:30          4:30        | _ ��  6:40 am    4:30 pm  8:20          6:30  10:30          8:30  5:45 am    3:30 pm   H  7:35           5:30 *       ���  9:15          7:30          ���  11:30        *7:25  10:30          6:30        | ��  ��� 12:25 pm 10:20*  11:30  9:30          ���  1:15 pm    9:15  *12:25 pm    8:20        *8  2:30  1:30 |  ?m                     1  ������������MINI-BUS SCHEDULE _M_B  Monday         Tuesday  Wednesday  Thursday  Friday     ���  Leaves Sechelt  8:40 a.m.             8:40 a.m.  8:40 a.m.  8:40 a.m.  8:40 a.m.    ���  for Gibsons  *10:00a.m.         *10:00a.m.  *10:00 a.m.  *10:00 a.m.  10 00 am.     ���  The Dock.

Hydro and the appellants, Joe  Harrison, pictured here with Michael Conway-Brown and other members of his delegation.  ���Dianne Evans photo  Pesticide appeal heard  |3l7  Continued from page 1  chemical wiped onto the cut, or,  where necessary merely wiped  onto the leaves of a standing  tree.  Lyall Forbes, who has been a  resident of the area for some 25  years and has seen it develop into the present community, was  able to indicate on the B.C.  Hydro map several watercourses which had been left out.  "What were your plans if you  didn't know about these watercourses?" Forbes asked.  "These are all spawning creeks,  except Maude which was until  they put a culvert in.  "Any of these things (Roundup e.g.) are always experimentation," he continued. "Every  time you use them it's experimenting with nature."  One of the major documents  used by the appellant was a  report issued by the Sacramento  Water Quality Commission  which made many recommendations including a restriction  on allowable quantities of  glyphosate. Environmental Protection Agency recommendation, as of June 26, 1984 direct  only 500 parts per billion as being acceptable with an interim  130 parts per million being  recommended to protect aquatic Jife._ The EPA alsq;recom5j  mended that more research is  needed.  The closing arguments by  Hydro drew attention to what  was perceived by the lawyers to  be a lack of knowledge of the  appellants.  ' 'They didn't know that there  was no appeal against the 1984  use of Roundup in the area,"  House said in her summation,  "they had incorrct information  about soil bonding, they didn't  know we have an agreement  with Gibb Baal (of the Ruby  Lake Restaurant who allegedly  has said he is satisfied with  Hydro's safety precautions)."  Regional Board Director for  Area A Ian Vaughan had indicated that he would be present  Legal  J  INVITATION  TO TENDER  Water taxi services for  transporting up to 6 men  from Pender Harbour to  Cockburn Bay on Nelson  Island as required from 1  Oct. 85 to 30 Sept. 86.

Therefore the SCRD was  unrepresented a fact which B.C.  Hydro drew attention to on  several occasions.  "This (absence of the Director) is another example of lack  of evidence," House said, "we  must give the appellant little or  no weight, too, in their evidence  concerning the safety of Roundup.  "There are no unreasonable  or adverse effects. We ask, is it  safe? The government law controls the sale of Roundup with  the Pesticide Control Products  Act. The Minister has to give his  approval  of labelling,  which  clearly sets out regulations and  instructions concerning the safe  application of the product."  Harrison called for more  testing, and again cited the  California report. He also raised the question of the formation  of nitrosamines, carcinogenic  substances which may be formed in the soil where red alder  grows, as they produce nitrogen  in the soil, and the glyphosate  breaks down into a nitrogenous  form. Studies in this area are incomplete.  "The board will be flying in  the face of a perceived danger if  it ignores this evidence," Harrison said in concluding his  speech.

French for ladies  "Every letter I get from my  relatives in France now, I have  to look up words in the French-  English dictionary," bemoaned  Yvette Kent in a conversation  with the Coast News last week.  "I thought that if I were doing that, then many of the other  French speaking women here  would be in the same boat,"  Yvette continued.  To help improve that situation, Yvette proposes to form a  club   for   French   speaking  women which will meet perhaps  twice a month and during which  meetings nothing but French  will be spoken.  Capilano College, Sechelt  campus, has offered the group  films and books and has also  made space available for the  members to view the films at the  college.  "We will try to keep French  alive," Yvette said. If you are  interested in joining such a club,  call Yvette Kent at 885-9461.

Coast News, August 26,1985  Germany to pay treatment for war vets  Bath attendant Anne Metzner massages the shoulder of Josef  Solga, who is receiving four weeks of treatment at Western Moor-  bad, courtesy of the West German government. ���Fran Burnside photo  B.C. Tel rejects  latest offer  from TWU  The Telecommunications  Worker's Union (TWU) today  revealed that B.C. Telephone  has rejected out of hand the  union's latest offer for the  union to pay the wages of two  workers to keep B.C. Tel's Mini  Mart open on the Sunshine  Coast.  "We are shocked at the flat  ; rejection by the company of any  compromise," says Linda  Hiebert, business agent with the  TWU.  "Only just over a month ago  B.C. Tel stated that the cost of  the wages of two employees  supposedly prevented them  from keeping the Gibsons Mini  Phone Mart open. The TWU  has now offered to pay all these  costs for one year but the company still refuses to open the  phone marts."  The union states the company  is centralizing its services unnec-  cessarily and deliberately  removing local employment and  personal service from small  communities around B.C. in  prder to benefit a few urban  areas and to increase profit.  "A letter of August 8 submitted to B.C. Tel by the TWU  president Bill Clark states that  the union would pay all the  costs of opening mini-marts in  both Gibsons and Sechelt and  pay for the salaries of the two  employees for one year. The only obligation on the company  would be to provide the two  marts with the standard computer hook-up and maintain the  dental and other benefits of the  ��� employees. Last week B.C. Tel  replied in writing to the union,  flatly rejecting its offer.  "Although telephone customers along the Sunshine Coast  pay millions of dollars of phone  costs to B.C. Tel the company is  tearing out of small communities such as Gibsons the  few services and jobs that it, for  so many years, has provided."  The recent announcement of  layoffs at the Port Mellon pulp  mill and the elimination of  another 98 jobs will be another  deep shock to a community that  is suffering one of the highest  unemployment rates in the province, according to Hiebert.  "The Europeans would be  happy to have such good mud  as we have here," said Anne  Metzner of Western Moorbad  in conversation with the Coast  News last week. "We had to  send samples to West Germany  for analysis and they were very  pleased with the results."  Western Moorbad, situated  in the Rockwood Lodge,  Sechelt, has just received a long-  awaited authorization from the  Social Insurance Department of  the City of Bremen which gives  approval for the Balneo Treatment, equivalent to that  available in West Germany, to  be administered to German Army veterans now resident in  Canada.  The first such patient, Mr.  Josef Solga, began his  treatments on August 17. A  seven year resident of Victoria,  up to now Mr. Solga has had to  go to Germany for his treatments which last for 29 days  and are necessary every three  years.  West German Social Insurance covered the costs only  from the German end of the  plane trip, which meant considerable expense to Mr. Solga  as well as the discomfort of a  long journey.  "We applied for the  authorization some thirteen  months ago," Mrs. Metzner,  who with her husband Fred  operates Moorbad, said "but it  took all that time to check out  whether we comply with West  German standards. Now that  our approval has been given we  are hoping to attract some more  veterans; there are 5,000 such  eligible people in Canada alone,  and we are the only facility able  to offer the treatments either uv  Canada or in the US."  The advantages to Sechelt  will be great, says Mrs. Metzner.  "Mr. Solga's treatment, for  example, will be about $3,500  including all his meals, accommodation and daily  treatments," she said. "If there  are 5,000 eligible such veterans  in Canada then even if only ten  per cent of them need to come  to us, there will be a big influx  of money into the Sunshine  Coast. j'  "We can accommodate only  22 person, so any others will  have to stay in local hotels," she  continued, "and many people  who visit us from afar come  with their families who all have  to stay somewhere, to eat in the  area, and who will shop as people do when they are away from  home."  Mr. Solga hails from Hohen-  limburg, a city near Cologne.  He told the Coast Newtfthat his  children were the first to come  out to Canada, and that he  followed shortly afterwards.  "I met many Canadians at  the end of the war in  Germany," he said, "and they  were very friendly to us regular  soldiers."  Mrs. Metzner explained that,  after the First World War, mud  was sent from Prince Rupert to  Europe for healing, but the idea'  of mud baths did not catch on  in Canada, although, as Mrs.  Metzner pointed out, the West  Coast Indians have been familiar with the healing powers of  local mud for centuries.  Popular for generations in  Europe because of its healing  effects, treatment with peloids  or therapeutic muds is a form  also of preventive medicine.  "We have a one-week anti-  stress program which is like a  retreat," she explained, "there  are five treatments with the mud  bath, also other baths, such as  iodine, sulphur, and C02,  which are very relaxing and  therapeutic. In North America  we are very prone to stress-  related diseases and this is a way  of ridding yourself of that  harmful stress."  A local doctor from the  Sechelt Medical Clinic, works  with the therapist and the patient during the course of  treatments; in cases of the German war veterans, a weekly examination is mandatory.  "Unfortunately our treatments are not yet recognised by  the Canadian medical plans, but  they can be claimed on income  tax," Mrs. Metzner explained.  "Also, we offer a ten per cent  discount for senior citizens and  local residents."
