Decision this week?  \  Verdict on theatre  site stifli awaited  by Brad Benson  v; " , After years of discussion and  a'few false starts* the possibility  of building a live theatre on the  Sunshine Coast may finally be  in the works.  ^ At Gibsons' regular council  y~ meeting on November 19, amo-  ytion  put  forth by Alderman  y Norm Peterson and unanimously ly approved by other council  j f firjemberspresent has now paved  J.the way for the Eileen Glassford  :#Arts  Foundation  (EGAF)  to  .'���ybegin ai^itectural plans and  ifuhdrdsing to build a 300 seat  y theatre and arts pavilion on the  'old fire hall site in Holland  ;   |Park.    y,  ^ y  In her presentation to coun-  yyeil, EGAF treasurer Ruby Buick  ������' ysaid their plans call for completion of the structure by early  /summer so that theatre activity  yarid  artist  displays could be  available for the tourist season.  Mayor Labonte wished the  ' EGAF luck, but warned that  Nhe town would not be able to  carry the project if financial difficulties occurred.  The council's motion gave  the EGAF one year to raise  funds for the project.  However,"the motion contained an omission in that it  failed to designate the site and  specify the negotiation of a lease  with the EGAF. This omission  was dealt with by council  members in a meeting of a  Committee of the Whole on  November 21, where it was  unanimously moved that the  following revised motion be  submitted to the next regular  ���J meeting   of   council   for   ap-  Must Nave been too cold for the reindeer to make it this year, since Santa Claus came into Gibsons last  Saturday on a bright shiny fire truck.

The Centennial '86 Committee called its annual meeting for  last Tuesday, but because of  heavy snows, not enough people  showed up to make an executive  quorum.  Acting Chairman Ray Chamberlin briefly reviewed the year  for the small group that was  there.  The committee had applied  twice to the provincial government for an Expo 86 pavilion  but Chamberlin said none of the  buildings will be awarded to  areas outside the Greater Vancouver Regional District.  The committee intends,  however, to apply for a grant  from the Expo 86 Legacy Fund,  which will make $30 million  available to communities across  B.C.  Phase one of the upper town  project would be recreational  additions at the north end of the  winter club site. A bowling alley  has been proposed, as veil as  squash and racquet ball  facilities, and meeting rooms.  Alternate uses were discussed  Tuesday, replacing the bowling  alley with indoor tennis courts.  There was a warning that raquet  ball is dying off in Vancouver.  Costs for phase one are  estimated at $881,000 but  changes in use could reduce  costs.  Later phases would see the  construction of a 266 seat theatre and assembly and banquet  hall.  The entire project is priced at  about $3.6 million.  The committee had planned  to hold a lottery, but the idea,  said Chamberlin, "was shot  down in flames by Victoria,"  who told the committee it  couldn't sell tickets off the Sunshine Coast.  The project, Chamberlin con  cluded, is in abeyance until the  economic outlook of the province improves.  The   committee's   assets  presently total some $10,000.  Another meeting has been  scheduled for December 7 at the  Marine Room below the Gibsons public library. It will start  at 3 p.m.  Expo Legacy aid sought  Sechelt makes foreshore plans  Foreshore improvements will  comprise the Village of Sechelt's  application to the provincial Expo 86 Legacy Fund.  The waterfront package  would cost $487,500, with  $17,500 as local contribution.  The project would consist of  the following:  building a concrete boat  launch at the foot of Shorncliffe, suitable for small car-  rydown boats;  widening Shorncliffe to 66  feet from Teredo down to the  facility;  a sidewalk down the east side  of Shorncliffe;  a cul de sac above the boat  ramp, enabling vehicles to turn  around;  a sidewalk through the  Snickett and to the west end of  Boulevard;  creating a parking lot on  village-owned land at the foot  of Wharf Road;  a larger boat ramp* big  enough for trailer-hauled  vessels, below Wharf Road;  a retaining wall from, at  least, the Driftwood Inn to the  west end of Boulevard;  ornamental street lighting  along the entire waterfront  sidewalk.  The provincial government  has not indicated when it would  announce grant allocations.  Village staff has affixed to the  application January to May,  1986 as a tentative period for  work on the project.  Liberal candidate  Gordon Wilson was elected Sunday as the B.C. Liberal  candidate for Mackenzie Riding. Coverage of the annual  general meeting will appear next week in the Coast News.  f  &  ��� i*  )l  X  LTttEHAO^.^rUW1  the Town of Gibsons and the  Eileen Glassford Arts Foundation for the old firehall site  together with sufficient land to  accommodate the construction  of a proposed performing arts  pavilion, the terms and conditions of which lease must be  subject to the approval of council;  "And that said agreement in  principle will expire at the end  of December 1986 if the foundation has not by that time provided the town with satisfactory  evidence of financial ability to  proceed with construction and  operation of the pavilion on  that site."

Doris Fuller received 910 in the  count, held at the school board  offices last Friday, Don  Douglas, 885 and Tom Ferguson polled 857. Incumbent  Douglas will serve another  term, and the new trustee for  the area will be Doris Fuller.  Meantime in the Town of  Gibsons there is still no firm  word yet on whether there will  be an election for trustee. Incumbent, Chairman Janice Edmonds, is to remain in office,  under Section 24(4) of the  School Act, until the matter of a  Gibsons^ejegtiorji|^n|i|j^d^ac-;^  cording' to a Mem&tm^h y  from Seeretary-Tfeasurer���' Roy  Mills, dated November 26.  Because   Edmonds   is   the  chairman of the board the ques:  tion of the election of a new  chairman has also arisen. Mills  has sought advice from Frank  Bartunek of the Ministry of  Education and he has indicated  that the board should appoint  an interim chairman just for the  inaugural December 10 meet:  ing, or that Edmonds could ret  main as chairman until the elec*  tion matter is resolved.  The Deputy Minister of  Education Jim Carter is sending  a memorandum to the Minister  of Municipal Affairs, according  to the same release from Mills;;  saying that the education  ministry believes that there  should be an election,in th^.-  wtOAyniand .action .from thei  Minister of Municipal Affairs-  who is responsible for issuing  r the warrant necessary for the  election, should occur speedily.  It is on the top floor of the three storey boiler at Canfor's Port  Mellon mill that the damage from a recent explosion is most visible,  and where it is the most extensive. The explosion blew apart the  casing which contains asbestos so the entire boiler has been encased  in plastic to enable workers to continue on the job outside the  boiler. Those who are working inside the boiler wear respiratory  masks and special disposable coveralls and must shower upon leav  ing the boiler to avoid contamination of the outside air.  &  ���Neil Sandy-photo  Sponsored by Global  ED/MED Supplies (Canada)  Inc.

If was becoming apparent that the provincial government was going to seek re-election, despite a truly abysmal  record in office, by trying to make the original inhabitants  of this province the villains of the piece. It is consistent  with their previous election strategies which have seen  them actively sowing fear and distrust as a means of acquiring power.  This may be a sign that the divide and rule tactics of the  Socreds may no longer be effective. If so, it bodes well for  the future harmony of this province.  Without harmony, prosperity will be beyond us.  Loyalty limit  It is manifest nonsense for Director McGillivray to offer  the view that Bill Lawrenuk is wrong about a foul-up in  the SCRD planning department because he hasn't been to  all the meetings to discuss Scantech and the foreshore zoning.  The error came before the farm, Director McGillivray.  It is obviously a planning error which left the foreshore  wide open. Loyalty to staff should stop this side of  dishonesty.  fromth* mm of the COAST NEWS  ?N  "*    '  ~*t*  5 YEARS AGO  The regional board received the set of proposed  guidelines for Water Leases and Licences of Occupation drawn up by Water Lease Committee Chairman Joe  Harrison and Area B Alternate Director Homer Glass.  A near capacity crowd of almost 200 filled a small  auditorium at the West Vancouver Recreation Centre,  Wednesday night, to attend the first general meeting of  the Save Howe Sound Society and to unanimously pass  two resolutions aimed at the preservation of the Sound  for recreational use by future generations.  November 1980 was a wet one - the 1975 record of  27.79 cms. was surpassed by 4.3 mms. The daytime  temperatures were generally mild, reaching 10 degrees  C. on November 28, although the first below zero overnight temperatures were reached on the weekend.  10 YEARS AGO  Under the editorial heading of "A Nature Lesson"  Adolph Schmidt, United States Ambassador to Canada,  is quoted as follows: "I hope it will not be taken amiss if  I remind you that my country was also blessed with  areas of great beauty and an abundance of natural  resources. But in our eagerness...to make a fast dollar  while the getting was good we have in many ways been  profligate in our misuse of these irreplaceable  resources, I hope you.r magnificent land of .British .Columbia by^f6Vwa?d';planh]ng,\comp>(B^ehsive and adequate zoning and its rigid enforcement can profit from  some of our mistakes."  Residents of the Sunshine Coast were awakened in  their beds early Sunday morning when two earth  tremors shook the area.  15 YEARS AGO  Sechelt   Indian   Band,   at   a   meeting   last   week,  unanimously approved the leasing of 72 acres of land  for the construction of an $11,000,000 gravel plant.

Incorporation papers have been received by the Sunshine Coast Golf and Country Club, according to  secretary Mrs. Wilma Morrison.  25 YEARS AGO  Building of the proposed elementary" school at  Langdale has become an urgent problem according to  members of the school board. Urgency is evidenced by  the fact that a class in Gibsons Elementary School is  presently being held in the Anglican Parish Hall across  the road.  30 YEARS AGO  An experiment is underway at Gibsons Public Library  where on Saturday mornings stories are read to younger  children. Forty-four children attended the most recent  session. '���'-���������  A recent meeting of representatives of Canada, the  United States and! Japan to discuss salmon stocks  reveajed that all three countries were aware of the need  to avoid over exploitation.  35 YEARS AGO  Liberal MP James Sinclair offers to have federal  advertising dropped from the Coast News. The suggestion, made in a letter written by Sinclair to reply to a  critical editorial, draws a stinging editorial reply from  the publisher of the paper.  40 YEARS AGO  Seventy-five people from all parts of the Sunshine  Coast met in Roberts Creek to discuss what could be  done about local road conditions.

The Howe Sounders, pictured here in 1938 at the Women's Institute Hall which is now the School District 46 maintenance  building, was one such band.

The Women's Institute Hall was built in 1930-31 with Fred Fisher as foreman; Jack  Inglis worked on the building as a carpenter's helper.  Dianne  Evans  Problems of world hunger abound  by Dianne Evans  Calcutta is a city that's hard  to define. The British were there  in the early days of the East India Company, and they built  their churches and barracks,  their mansions and vice-regal  palaces, their offices and  trading centres in the English  tradition. She's like a dowager  Empress wearing tattered  clothes, grimly bearing up  under the strain of being one.of  the world's largest and poorest  cities. !      ' .     '   ,  There is so much of it - it's a  city where birth and life and"  death make their appearances  on life's stage without any introduction and with no fancy  props.  I stayed six months in Calcutta, through the almost  unbearably humid days of April  and May, through months of  monsoons when the streets  flooded instantly and the  cockroaches invaded every corner of the house, and then in the  winter months when a drop in  the temperature to 70��  Fahrenheit at night would leave  dozens dead in the doorways  from hypothermia.  And all through those months I grappled with what it  meant to live in the city, what it  meant to be a westerner in a  place that was full of all the  things we shield ourselves from  in the clean and prosperous  cities of the west.  It was the children and the  poor, the beggars and the sick,  the thousands of people trying  desperately hard to make a living, to raise their children, to  survive, that made the most  vivid impressions on me.  I lived near the New Market,  at the Salvation Army, which all  the poorer travellers from  around the world had made  their headquarters. A short  walk down Madge Lane took  me from the seedy respectability  of the Sally Anne to a Hogar-  thian world of tradesmen, beggars, hawkers, touts and shoppers.  There one can buy almost  anything and haggle the price  down to something acceptable;  there is no end to the noise and  the smells, it is dizzying to walk  through, but although it assails  the senses, it's exciting and I  could never get enough of it.  It was walking through the  market and the streets around it  that I met Abdullah Din. He  followed me around for a few  days, begging a few pice, asking  if he could carry my packages. I  never did have anything to carry  because I had so little money to  spend, but then, that was  relative. To Abdullah I was  from another world where people didn't have to beg to live,  where poverty meant not having  as much money as everyone  else. In his world poverty meant  having nothing at all.  Abdullah and I became  friends. I bought him an apple  and a pint of milk each day at  the dairy, and I found him some  new clothes. I tried to get him  some sandals but he couldn't  abide the feel of them on his  feet. Abdullah lived in the doorway of a shop near the market.  Abdullah was 10 years old.  An Indian friend interpreted  for us and I learned a little of  his history. Abdullah's family -  he was one of 10 children - lived  in the country to the south of  Calcutta, Times were hard,  there was simply not enough to  eat, and it became a question of  leave, or die.  ���   It was through Abdullah that -.  1 came to know some of the  poorest   of   my   neighbours.  There   were   whole   families  whose days were spent on the  street, and who slept in doorways or under a tree on the  sidewalk. They ate barley flour  mixed with water from the corner pump, and once in a while  one would disappear, carried  away in a white shroud to the  ghat where the fires would end  once and for all a life of want,  of hunger and pain.  It wasn't easy living in such a  place. I still don't know how to  think about it. I felt guilt at having so much more, although by  our standards I was poor. I  hated the constant wheedling  for baksheesh, but 1 hated  myself more  for  not  having  enough to give to make a difference.  There are no easy answers to  the problems of world hunger,  and now that hunger is moving  closer to home, we should take  the time to think long and hard  on what it means to live with  nothing, to die because you  don't have enough to eat.  At this time of year, more  than at any other, it is to be  hoped that we can reach into  our hearts to give, to remember  that if we let someone go  hungry because we refuse to  help, we haven't learned any  lessons at all from Christmas.

We  all know that pesticides such as  DDT which have been banned  in North America for years  now, are still being peddled to  the Third World countries.  Then there was the well  publicized case of the Nestle's  Company trying to sell infant  feeding formula in Africa, a  country where clean water isn't  always readily available, and  mounting a campaign to persuade mothers to buy their product rather than breastfeeding  their babies. World opinion has  brought that despicable practice  to an end one hopes.  Recently I read of yet  another, perhaps more despicable scam, if there are levels to  how low one can drop in order  to make a commercial profit.  The International Organiza  tion of Consumer Unions report  that two drug companies, one in  Switzerland and one in America  are continuing to sell the drugs,  pizotifen and cypoheptadine to  countries where hunger is still a  major problem. The drugs are  claimed to be appetite stimulants, the last thing one would  have thought such people needed - food might be more help.  The advertisements in a  newspaper in Pakistan read  "For the growing child who is  under-weight". In the countries  where the Swiss company sells  pizotifen as an appetite  stimulant it claims there are  significant weight gains for nine  patients out of ten.  The sale of these drugs have a  market value of $100 million  plus per year to the western  drug companies though when  they sell the same drug in  developed countries it is for the  treatment of migraine and the  appetite stimulant and weight  gain are down played as "just  minor side effects".  In the U.S. the drug has not  been promoted as an appetite  stimulant since 1971 when the  Food and Drug Administration  declared there wasn't enough  information to support the  claim.  What a hypocritical bunch we  are - on the one hand we give  ourselves brownie points for  our generosity in giving money  for famine relief and on the  other we allow government and  big business to exploit these  Third World people and use  their countries as dumping  grounds for wastes and other  chemicals we wouldn't want in  our own back yard.  Seems to me that in our  justifiable fear of a nuclear  holocaust we are overlooking  the basic root of all our pro  blems; the flaw in human nature  which   may   bring   the   great :���  adventure of the human race to ���  an untimely end - it's written in  one small word - GREED,  i also found a postscript to-'  the coiumn I wrote about farm-;  ing a few weeks ago in a letter'  from   someone   in    Kent    in';  England    describing    the'  neighbouring   farm   in    1938,  when it employed a dozen full-  time workers and many others\  at different times of the year.'  Wheat and barley were grown,  there were plum and apple orchards, a strawberry field, 300?  sheep and a shepherd, a milking *  herd, a bull and a decorativell  population   of   chickens   and.'  geese. Today it employs two  men and an unknown number-  of giant machines, breeds cattle  and grows endless acres of grass  for silage; every field is barb-  wired and the gates locked.

Woods  Arrests disturbing  Editor:  The arrest of our Haida  fellow citizens was extremely  disturbing to me.  Everyone knows that these  fine people have owned and lived on the Charlotte Islands for  many thousands of years. We  are proud of them.  The white man has violently  taken lands from the natives in  the past, are we trying to continue that, by using different  methods?  We just have no right to give  cutting licences on Lyell Island  until   the   Haidas   have   been  negotiated with. It is essential  that jobs be created. It is also  essential that aboriginal rights  be acknowledged, and addressed.  Of course it is not easy, but if  faced with integrity and humanity we can come out of it with  mutual respect and lasting economic well-being for all of us  -Canadian citizens of whatever  background.  We urge our provincial and  federal governments to solve  this vexatious problem fairly, to  all concerned.  E.W.

People not in the know simply think all you have to do is  advertise and open the door and  people come a-running. The  peninsula is rather a small place,  with only so many bingo players  to go around. There is a bingo  every night of the week but  Saturday, and in their own little  way these contribute to the well  being of the community, with  regard to sports, recreation and  hospital.  So with more than one bingo  running that night, nobody  makes any money.  I am sorry I feel so strongly  about this but all these little  bingos will still be here when  Expo is gone and forgotten.  We still have to live in the  community. So why not try and  get along without stepping on  one another's toes.

Gunter  knows  Editor:  For some time now your  paper has given much space for  a glowing coverage on  Nicaragua. There is also a  group on the coast which quite  actively promotes the aims of  this country and even solicits  funds in support of the revolution.  I have accumulated sufficient  evidence to state without hesitation that Nicaragua is a Marxist  Leninist country with total  alignment with Moscow and  that the reports that have come  to us through your paper are no  more than disinformation. I  make no judgement on the intent of any of the authors of  such reports but I would like to  offer to anybody who would  like to find out more about the  true state of Nicaragua to get in  touch with me.  v. How do I know that my  sources of information are true  and their's are not or at least  only partially true? If we want  to come closer to the truth an  examination of first principles  about man and our condition is  an absolute must. Then if we  examine the stated principles of  Marxism and how these are being implemented then it  becomes quite possible to decide  in which sources one can place  one's trust.

On Tuesday night (November  26) another car with five occupants left the road and plunged into the deep ravine at the S  hill on Gower Point Road. This  totals around a dozen in the  twenty years I have lived here.  I share the opinion of many  others that the time is long overdue when the department of  highways and/or the RCMP  should take measures to.rectify  trie conditions how existing at  that spot.  This could be done in a simple, inexpensive manner too involved for me to describe in this  letter.

For those who  don't know what that means, it  is the art of beer and wine making, and the quality of the entries in Saturday's contest clearly show that there are manv  who have mastered the art.  ^    There were several different  r types.of beer entered, but it was  in the wine categories that there  was a large variety. From grapes  to   blackberries,   rhubarb,  blueberry,   peach,   apricot,  parsley and raisin, celery and  raisin, pear and even parsnip,  the   wines   were  all   dutifully  tasted and judged according to  their clarity,  bouquet,  colour  and taste.  Winner of the beer contest,  ���and acclaimed by all who tasted  his brew, was Sechelt resident,  former alderman, Ken Short,  who also took first prize in the  white wine category. Second  place went to Michael Belisle  and third to Peter Quinn.  The overall winner of the  wine contest was Yvonne  Morgan, who, with husband  Bob, made a spectacular  raspberry wine, as well as beer  and several other wines.  Sonja Gilham took first prize  in the variety category with a  peach wine, and the Mutch/Russell partnership took  first in the blackberry category.  The McGillivrays came in second in blackberries and Sue  Sleep took third place.  Runners up in the white wine  category won by Ken Short,  were Pat Parker and Gary Kent.

WEST COAST EXPLORERS  . A new club is in its infancy in  Sechelt, serving all people on  the coast. This is the West Coast  Explorers Club: membership  costs $3 per person or $5 a couple. This entitles one to enjoy  outingr, off the coast at a group  rate plus companionship of  fourteen others, with someone  else doing the driving.  Terry Hansen is the brainchild of this new venture. Terry  worked as shift supervisor for  Dome Glass which recently closed its doors leaving its  employees out of a job. Having  relatives here, his mother Mrs.  Kurt Kukelka of West Sechelt,  Terry, after visiting here, decided this was the place for him.  The club welcomes members,  and of course a slate of directors and officers will be needed.  In the meantime Terry is sponsoring events to get the show on  the road.  Already he has made good  contacts    with    theatres,  museums, the planetarium etc.,  where he has been able to get  half price admission on group  rates.  There will be theaire, cultural  and shopping events. Coming  up in January, a two day stay at  the Empress Hotel in Victoria at  a most reasonable cost.  This week on Thursday,  December 3 it is a trip to UBC  Museum of Anthropology; the  Fats Waller musical show  "Ain't Misbehavin" is on  Wednesday, December 4.  This trip, you leave from  Sechelt at 11:15, shop at Granville street market, then from  5:30 to 7:30 is the theatre performance, over in lots of time to  catch the last ferry home.  Thursday, December 5 is a,  Shop-A-Thon visiting the Lans-  downe shopping area.  Phone Terry at 885-7407.  JOHN BURNSIDE  John Burnside as Gibsons'  Representative on the SCRD  was doing a fine job of promoting greater unity between all  factions of the Sunshine Coast.  He, I am sure, will continue to  do this and it is hoped that he  will try for public office at the  next available opportunity.  Sechelt Seniors  by Robert Foxall  I am not going to write at any  length this weekend, but I do  want to apologize for the boner  I made last week when I said  that our tax number had been  received. Someone led me down  the garden path, and caused me  to make the statement. I took  my source to be reliable but it  proved not to be so. I shall want  sworn statements, next time.  My main reason for writing is  to remind the membership of  the Christmas dinners to be held  at our hall, December 11 and 12  at noon.  The 49ers will be in attendance.  Besides the Christmas dinners  we have our regular December  meeting on December 19. We  will hope for a good turnout at  that meeting.  All activities are going ahead  as usual.  I am considering a complaint  to Mother Nature for unnecessary hardship in the  weather we are being dealt out:  I came to the Sunshine Coast to  get away from that kind of  treatment.  Once again I want to wish my  readers a very MERRY  CHRISTMAS.

SIIAIIAIIN  CHRISTMAS  SHOPPING  PARTY  SUNNYCREST MALL GIBSONS, 886-9413  Kiwanis Centre marks  its fifth anniversary  by George Cooper, 886-8520  The Sunshine Coast Kiwanis  Club members served a birthday  cake and coffee last November  23 to the residents of the care  home and guests, in honour of  the fifth anniversary of the start  of this service in Gibsons.  Bill Lang, president of the  Kiwanis Club, and Don Grant,  chairman of the Sunshine Coast  Care Home Society, both  brought messages of good  wishes to the residents and to  the staff.  Guest of Honour, His Worship Mayor Laurent Labonte,  brought greetings from the  Town of Gibsons to those now  resident in the care home, many  of whom are longtime acquaintances of his.  President Bill Lang expressed  the appreciation the club has for  the care home administrator,  Hans Grossmann, and Kathy  Baxter, the care coordinator.  GRANT PLAQUE  When Mayor Laurent  Labonte officially unveiled the  bronze plaque at the new  marina the other week to commemorate a benefactor, Commander Kenneth Grant, RCN,  the youngsters of the Navy  League paraded for the .  ceremony.  The Navy League had special  reason to^ attend because their  corps is * named after Commander Grant.  "All but one of our members  attended," said Lera Cleland,  lieutenant in command of the  corps, "along with our officers,  Lieutenants Pam Gregorchuk,  Sue Chenier, and Eric McDermott. Our other lieutenant, Pat  Camposano, was unable to attend."  "Our family was touched by  the quiet attention of the  youngsters at the ceremony,"  said Mary Gregory, a sister of  Commander Grant's, "and they  stood still despite the biting  wind that day."  Mrs. Gregory provided the  refreshments, hot dogs and  pop, for a party at Lieuentant  Cleland's home after the  parade.  "The youngsters - they're 10  to 13 years of age - are intensely  interested in their training pr^  gram,' 'said Lera Cleland,' 'aftd*  of course are proud to be nam- v  ed for a navy man, whov had  such an outstanding career."

"We like the town," said  Jane, "and we look forward to  being a part of the  community."  The Grants have four  children - Debbie the oldest,  and Joyce, now in Elphinstone  Secondary, and the boys Jamie  and Keith in Gibsons Elementary.

HEROES OF  THE GRIDIRON  Three young men of Pender  Harbour played their first  season of football with the Sunshine Coast Sea Lions this fall.  Ryan Boyd, Paul MacDonald  and Richard Wilson trained  hard and played hard with the  team, spending much of their  time on the road to practices  and games in Sechelt, Gibsons  or various parks on the lower  mainland.  At the Sea Lions banquet in  Davis Bay last Thursday, the  boys ended the season with  videos of the games, fun  awards, and trophies. Richard  Wilson was named "Receiver of  the Year".  Irene Boyd roasted coach  Gary Groenke before presenting  gifts from the Harbour families.  Irene put together a beautiful  souvenir book for Gary and our  boys, with all the clippings from  trie newspaper, jokes, photos,  and reminiscences of our trips  to the games.  We're proud of Ryan,  Richard and Paul, and hope  that they will continue next  season.  READY, AIM, FIRE!  December 7 is the date for the  Pender Harbour Wildlife Society Turkey Shoot.

Hydro is advising the  public to avoid electrical safety  hazards during the Christmas  season.  Ornamental lights on Christmas trees can be a serious fire  hazard unless reasonable  precautions are taken, warns  Erich J. Hensch, District  Manager, Sechelt.  He singled out artificial  metallic trees as being of special  concern. "These trees are good  conductors of electricity and  should not be decorated with  Christmas lights under any circumstances because of the electrical hazard," says Hensch.  He points out that people  should not assume an artificial  tree is safe from fire. Some of  the popular reusable plastic  trees are flammable. Enquire  about this point before buying.  When selecting ay natural  Christmas tree, buy a pine or  Douglas fir in preference to  spruce. Both will hold their  needles longer and present less  of a fire hazard. Try to find a  tree that has been freshly cut.  Before decorating, check out  the tree lights.  "Each string of lights, new or  old, should be examined for  broken or cracked sockets,  frayed or bare wires or loose  connections. Discard damaged  sets or repair them," says  Hensch.  When preparing a natural  tree and stand, saw an inch or  two off the tree's butt using a  diagonal cut. This exposes a  larger surface to moisture than  a straight cut.  Stand the tree in water. A  commercial holder or a pail filled with sand and water can be  used. The water should be  replenished regularly. Some  trees will absorb about a half a  litre a day. Trees should be kept  away from heating vents or  radiators.  "And to be on the safe side,  turn off lights when you retire  for the night, or any time the  tree is left unattended," says  Hensch.  . He advises anyone putting  lights up outdoors to take these  safety measures:   > ��� *' r  Use only outdoor lights approved by the Canadian Standards Association.  Use an approved outdoor extension cord with a three-  pronged plug.  Check that the lights work  before they are put up.  Avoid handling wires with  wet hands or while standing on  wet ground.  Check for any frayed wiring.  MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!  OES meeting  by Mrs. Gowen  The Mount Elphinstone  Chapter No. 65 of the Order of  the Eastern Star (OES) held an  official visit of the Worthy  Grand Matron Mrs. Ruth Cole  and Worthy Grand Patron  Graham Tench of the Grand  Jurisdiction of British Columbia and Yukon Order of the  Eastern Star. Early afternoon  the officers and members met  for a school of instruction  under the charge of Grand Lecturer Roberta Moffat, Past  Grand Matron. It was a most  informative and rewarding  afternoon as the Chapter Officers exemplified their work.  The officers and members enjoyed a roast beef dinner  together and enjoyed talking to  honoured guests before the  meeting.  The Worthy Mrs. Dorothy  Aherman and Worthy Patron  Jack Cook extended a warm  and gracious welcome to Worthy Matron Ruth Cole and  Worthy Grand Patron Graham  Tench. Accompanying them  were Vi Merrick, Grand Chapter committee member; Roberta  Moffat, Past Grand Matron  and Grand Lecturer; Roberta  Millin, Grand Conductress;  June Rajola, Grand Chaplain.  Past Grand Patrons were Bob  Williscroft and Lew Millin and  18 visitors and Grand Representative Matron Kay Franshe were  presented.  During the meeting the Worthy Grand Matron gave an inspiring address and complimented the officers on their  work.  Mrs. Joyce Kerpan presented  the Worthy Grand Matron with  a cheque from Mount Elphinstone Chapter No. 65 for cancer  research and dressing. Mrs.  Laurie Bryson P.M. gave a cheque to Worthy Grand Matron  for her favourite project.  The Worthy Matron used the  Worthy Grand Matron's gavel  and block in the shape of a pentagon and her Bible placed on  the altar after which the Worthy  Matron and Worthy Patron  signed the members' book, the  members sang a song to the  tune of The Old Spinning  Wheel in the parlour. A very  pleasant hour was spent  downstairs, the tables were  decorated with wild pink roses  and bachelor buttons and a  small spinning wheel was at the  head table.  Printing plant plans  Two lots on the corner of  Field Road and Highway 101 in  Wilson Creek are to be rezoned  to permit the building of a printing plant. At the November 21  SCRD planning committee  meeting it was decided that the  rezoning should go to first and  second reading as soon as possible; public input will be allowed  at a public hearing which will  take place after that time.  Chairman of the board, Jim  Gurney said that the proposed  zoning makes planning sense.  "Let's accept a little bit less  than what we might ideally  want, rather than lose the  chance of the industry," he added, saying that the public  would have the chance to comment at a public hearing.  The company anticipates  having 14 full-time employees in  the first "year, 18 full-time and  six part-time employees in the  second year and 21 full-time  and six part-time employees in  the third year.

This is the time that's full  of perpetual scurrying and if you haven't made your Christmas cake  and pudding and mincemeat yet then it's time you scurried too! This is  the time too, that one should make one's gingerbread if one didn't  get round to it in the summer time!  The following recipe contains sufficient dough to make two to three  gingerbread houses, depending on the size of mansion, and enough  left over to make gingerbread people to hang from your tree.  GINGERBREAD DOUGH  1.99  1.69  1.25  .89  Bologna  1 cup shortening  1 cup sugar  1 cup molasses  2 tablespoons vinegar  Vz teaspoon salt  1 tablespoon ground ginger  1 teaspoon cinnamon  1 teaspoon ground cloves  IV2 teaspoons baking soda  5 cups flour  1 egg  Cream shortening and sugar. Beat in egg and molasses and vinegar.  Sift all dry ingredients together and beat and knead them in gradually.  Cover and leave overnight.  Next day throw some of the dough on a baking sheet - don't worry if  the dough appears crumbly. Roll or squish the dough out to cover the  baking sheet - about 3/8" thick. Cut out the shapes you need and  carefully remove the rest of the dough.  Bake each cookie sheet in the centre of the oven at 350��F for 8  minutes. Place the pieces on a cooling rack and when quite cold place  in an air tight container for at least a week.  When you are ready to "build" your house, cement the pieces  together with icing made from icing sugar and egg white - and get someone with a steady hand to help you.  After the edifice has become a whole - and take it slowly - you know  how builders are! - then you can decorate it. Go mad! M&M paths; liquorice fence posts and wood piles; miniature marshmallow piles of  snow; jelly candy holly wreaths in red and green on the front door - it's  up to you.

His assistant  producer is also on hand to keep  track of takes and generally  monitor the proceedings.  Bill Reiter shows up early and  we talk more about his comedic  heyday with the Bundolo Show.  His manic sense of humour has  been largely channeled into  commercials now. Reiter does a  lot of them, both for radio and  television. He confides that he is  actually the beer-guzzling sas-  quatch on the Kokanee ads.  Reiter complements this activity-  with straight radio acting jobs  on shows such as this one, and  some film work. He nostea a  costume party this past  weekend, dressed as an unlikely  Scotch laird and shows us a picture of himself, corpulent and  owl-eyed in kilts. "I was surrounded by curious married  women all night," Reiter jokes.  The rest of the actors arrive  and Kowalchuk starts to get  things organized. First he sits  down with the cast behind the  performing area and they  discuss the story and the  characters. Periodically, he consults with Yvonne on minor  points of dialogue. The word  "glasshouse" occurs many  times in the script. It is decided  to make it "greenhouse" and  avoid any confusion with  military jails.  The bull-session over,  Kowalchuk, Yvonne and myself  1*   _  Sat.,  Dec. 7th  Roberts Creek Community Hall  *5���� admission includes 3 cards - additional cards *1���� ea.  adjourn to the glass-walled  recording booth. The curtained  performing space directly in  front of the booth has several  hanging mikes in the centre with  painted footprints on the floor  around them, like the footprints  at an old time dance studio,  showing the actors where to  stand. The sound-effects man  (to my vague disappointment),  works his tricks unseen in a  back room.  Kowalchuk calls for another  preliminary runthrough, this  time with sound effects. There  is an immediate problem with a  simulated office door, opening  and closing. The first attempt  sounds like a screen door; the  second, more like a window.  Finally, the effects man achieves  a suitable approximation.  "Doors are always a problem,"  Kowalchuk comments.  Reiter and Kowalchuk have  worked together on many  previous projects and have a  good light-hearted rapport.  There is a good deal of joshing  back and forth between takes.  Bill Reiter is a very funny man  and some of his ad-libbed  asides break us all up. But he is  also a professional actor here to  do a job and when he assumes  the character of Henry Herman,  he is strictly business.  The runthrough is completed  and the actual taping begins.  Kowalchuk has divided the  script into various scenes and  sections. They deal with them  one at a time, mostly in sequence.  There are three interchanges  between Reiter and Roger Norman, as the veddy British Colonel. They play off each other  well and Norman's accent is  perfect but he tends to overpro-  ject at times and it jars against  Reiter's low-key manner of  delivery. Kowalchuk gets Norman to tone it down a bit.  Kowalchuk is obviously a  perfectionist. He runs them  through some sequences as  many as eleven times.  After a couple of hours,  Kowalchuck calls a break.  Smoking is not permitted in the  studio. Yvonne and I adjourn to  a nearby green room. The walls  are covered with glossy photos  of various CBC stalwarts in  their salad days. I am amazed to  spot much younger versions of  Beachcomber stalwarts, Rae  Brown and Joe Austin. Rae is  slim, blonde and comely; Joe,  thirtyish and debonair with  black hair and a dashing  moustache. In this room, they  celebrate their youth forever.  We return to the studio and  the taping resumes. A couple of  the actors who only have a few  lines in the early scenes, have  already left. The action has  boiled down to the growing  estrangement between Henry  Herman and his wife, over his  obsession with the orchid. Their  disintegrating relationship is a  ������&,  Tuesday  ' hursday  Saturday  J;f "4 p.m.  Inn'4?���  1:30- 4  key element of the story. Reiter  and Marion Eisman build into it  believably. Through numerous  takes, they dig deeper into the  characters.  The taping continues into the  late afternoon with a break for  lunch. Several key scenes  amount to soliloquies by Reiter  as he communes with the orchids in his greenhouse and  makes entries in a journal.  Reiter has totally psyched  himself into the role by this  time. He is fascinating to watch  as he waters the non-existent  flowers with fussy, pantomime  motions and scratches in the  pages of an imaginary diary.  Kowalchuk is delighted. "He's  really doing it now," he  chuckles.  I have no intention of revealing the final plot twist. Suffice  to say that Henry Herman dies  ��� under decidedly peculiar circumstances.  The last scene involves two  police officers who are investigating the death. The actors  who essay these brief roles have  come in late. Their approach to  the greenhouse is signalled by  footsteps crunching on a gravel  path, an effect the sound man  achieves quite unmysteriously,  by actually walking in a box of  gravel. The two actors go  through their paces until  Kowalchuk is satisfied. He  declares it a wrap.  The actors' job is over. It  now remains for Kowalchuk to  select the best takes, add music  and narration and mix it all into  a finished package.  Yvonne and I take our leave.  We have followed her script  through from first genesis to  final taping. The prognosis  looks good. The show airs  December 2 at 11 p.m. on FM.  Why not give it a listen?

Continued from page 1'  department and the second  floor has been housing the  Unemployment Action Centre.  In addition to a 300 seat  theatre that will include a  gallery for displays of visual  arts,* the . project's estimated  $500,000 construction budget  will also provide a workshop,  . dressing room, and green room.  f The stage will be fully equipped  I with a basement and an over-  !. head "fly" for curtains and  \ stage backdrops.  ! The pavilion will operate on  j its own revenues generated from  rentals of the theatre for  {-theatrical, dance, music, and  jj; literary presentations as well as  I rentals from conferences and  �� meetings. Revenues will also be  | generated from special exhibits.  It is projected that two full  time and numerous occasional  jobs will be generated.  The EGAF, which is the  organization behind the proposal and which will be responsible for its fund raising, construction and operation, was  founded in 1979 for the express  purpose of building a theatre on  the Sunshine Coast.  It was named in memory of a  much loved school teacher of  thirty years who also had a deep  love for the theatre. Its first project was to dismantle a small  theatre constructed by U.B.C.  architecture students in West  Vancouver and reassemble it on  Gibsons municipal land where  the school board offices now  stand. Hundreds of hours of  Minister  School  The Minister of Education's  decision to move Bowen Island  into School District 45, West  Vancouver, received critical  comment at last week's School  Board meeting.  "We as a board have said  that we would support the decision of the people of Bowen  Island," Trustee Mary Belle  Bulmer said, "and we should be  protesting to indicate that the  manner in which this decision  has been made has not reflected  the wishes of the people. It  hasn't been a democratic process."  Trustee Eton Douglas agreed.  "The Minister has made his  decision without consultation.  The people should have had an  opportunity to have a plebiscite,  but they've never had that. The  community has split during the  long wait," Douglas said.  It is several years since the  question of Bowen Island's  place in School District 46 came  under question, and during that  time there have been numerous  attempts to get the matter settled, without success. The school  board could have held a referendum at the recent November 16  election, said Secretary-  Treasurer Roy Mills, but it was  FORST  Pottery  OPEN Wed.-Sat. 9-5 p.m.  Handcrafted by  PAT FORST  Gibsons  Chamberl  FORST POTTERY  Christmas Gifts,  gift registry service  at my studio  just off North Road  CHAMBERLIN RD.  GIBSONS  886-2543  Ferry  angers  Board  not considered because the  minister had indicated on his recent visit to the. Sunshine Coast  that he himself would make the  necessary decision and board  members assumed that he  would follow a democratic process in doing so.  Mills pointed out that the  minister has not expressed any  interest in a plebiscite, and in  any case it would not be binding  on him. Some trustees were  sceptical about the minister's  response to their proposed letter  of protest.  "He'll come back with the  400 letters he's received and  point to them as 'public involvement' ", Douglas said. "But all  the people have not had their  opportunity to express feelings  on which district they want to  belong to."  During question period at the  end of the board meeting, newly  elected trustee Doris Fuller addressed the board.  "During the last election, all  three candidates ran on a platform supporting a referendum  in Bowen Island," she said. "I  am disappointed that the board  is not even more incensed at the  (minister's) .high-handejl; mariner in which the decision was  made. At the Bowen Island all  candidates meeting it was said  that a referendum would heal  the wounds.  "I would like to see the board  go to Bowen Island and find out  how the people feel about it,"  Fuller added. "Would they like  a referendum? If they say yes,  then let's have one."  Tourism  meeting  The annual general meeting  of the Sunshine Coast Tourism  Association will be held Friday,  December 13 at 7 p.m. at the  regional board boardroom. The  association was formed last year  to co-ordinate and promote  tourism as a viable economic industry for the coast.  The meeting will deal with  nominations for directorships,  revision of the constitution and  a full report of the  organization's activities during  1985.  THIS CHRISTMAS...

The EGAF then began fund  raising efforts to build a theatre  of its own. These efforts were  shelved when the Shawnigan  Lake International School of  Music announced plans to build  a $16 million campus on the  Sunshine Coast which was to include a 700 seat theatre. These  plans did not come about for  financial reasons.  The latest efforts to build a  theatre occured when the  Centennial '86 Society decided  to include a 266 seat theatre in  its proposed community recreation complex to celebrate the-  Town of Gibsons' 100th anniversary in 1986. However,  funding for the project was not  available.  The public will soon have a  chance to study the proposed  theatre and arts pavilion if the  EGAF's plans to set up a  display booth during the week  Of December 16 can be coordinated with merchants in  lower Gibsons and the Sunnycrest Mall.  Fundraising has already been  underway. Over $900 was raised  last month with the  foundation's Hallowe'en dance,  and an upcoming Driftwood  Players performance during  Christmas week will donate all  their profits to the building  fund.  A broad base of public support will be sought; both in  terms of contribution of money  and, in the same spirit as the  original fire hall was built, contributions of vounteer labour  and materials.

Coast News, December 2,1985  -'*__X___^_^__^__  The snow makes it difficult to get out onto the golf course for a few  holes before lunch, but it's great for tobogganing as these  youngsters can attest. ���Dianne Evans pholo  Several alternatives  SCRD preparing  garbage tenders  The regional board is preparing to call for tenders for garbage and recycling pick-up and  disposal announced planning  committee chairman Director  Brett McGillivray at the  November 21 Sunshine Coast  Regional District (SCRD)  public utilities committee  meeting.  There are eight alternatives  for pick-up alone, taking into  account all the possible com-,  binations of pick-up, e.g. garbage pick-up three weeks in  four, and recycling pick up one.  week in four, and they will be  called early in December.  "These tenders assume that  Sechelt and Gibsons will be in  the program," McGillivray  commented to the board.  "When we come to a decision  we will have to question the  whole region and address their  inclusion at that time."  Chairman of the board, Jim  Gurney, said that the board  wanted the municipalities to go  through the opinion poll with  the SCRD to see how the people  feel, and both he and McGillivray said that it is important  for the board to get feedback  from all the people on this question.  There was some confusion  about the permit currently held  by the SCRD, which, claims  alternate director for Area E  Dick Derby, specifies that the  dump must be oeprated five  days a week. However Gurney  said that perhaps it was a good  case to put before the Pollution  Control Branch for amendment, because during recycling  weeks less time is required, and  it would be possible, according  to data so far collected to  operate only three days a week.  Director Jon McRae continued to voice his dissatisfaction with the concept of curb-  side pick-up, and, as he has  remarked in the past, he  wondered whether having containers at the Sechelt and Gibsons Malls would not be a better  alternative.  Gurney pointed out that Area  C broke the record so far for  recycling participation during  the latest recycling week, and =  indicated that both depots  recorded a quadrupling of  recyclables since the program  began, indicating that people  participate more when they do  not have to visit a depot.  "I am happy with the  figures," Gurney continued.  "So far we have only half the  participation we'll ultimately get  - and it will double again when  the municipalities enter the program.  "The most important thing is  the change in attitude. When  you start to recycle you become  'more aware of the waste you  create. That's what recycling is  all about," he continued.  "The impact on the environment is the bottom line. Every  time you take the short and easy  route you get problems,"  Gurney added.  The Greater Vancouver  Regional District (GVRD)  recently held a seminar on  recycling in which the SCRD  participated. McGillivray, who  attended, said that the GVRD  "couldn't believe the participation rate" that has been achieved in just a few short weeks.  "We asked the people, now  we're giving it a trial, then we'll  ask again," McGillivray said.  "Going to the public, that's the  key."  On the Rocks  by Judy Frampton  Our ninth annual Men's  Bonspiel was held last weekend  and was a huge success. Thirty-  two rinks competed, 20 from  out of town, one as far away as  Seattle. The curling was very exciting to watch with the Gordie  McAinich rink of Blair Olson,  Russ Hickey and Barrie Brown  from Langley taking the "A"  event over our local team of  Larry Penonzek, Glen Fisher,  Gary Flumerfelt and Peter  Emerson.  The "B" event was captured  by the Brian White rink of Irvin  Sellers, Vic Scott and Warwick  Harivel from the North Shore  Rec Center beating out the Ron  Buckhorn rink from Richmond.  The "C" event was won by  Stacey  CoOmber,   Mike Ash-  worth, Cory Coomber and  Wayne Andrews from Powell  River defeating Gordon Reed,  another Powell River team.  Bud Will's Delta team of  Laurie Miclash, Lawrie Gow  and Bun Freeman took the "D"  event over our local Howie  Larsen foursome.  A special thanks goes to Jan  Penonzek for organizing the  dinner Saturday night and the  kitchen all weekend. Thanks  Jan! Also a thank you to all the  volunteers who helped behind  the bar and in the kitchen.  Thanks as well to Syd Basey for  his time last weekend helping in  the concession and changing the  name plates for each draw. And  a big thank you to Larry  Penonzek and Howie Larsen  for organizing the draw and see  ing   that   everything   ran   as  smoothly as possible.  Putting on a bonspiel of this  caliber requires a lot of  volunteer effort and with two  more open bonspiels coming up  in the new year we would like to  see some more help in all areas.

Some 35 people braved the  icy roads to attend and hear college personnel, the Community  Development Officer, and staff  from local and regional Canada  Employment and Immigration  Commission (CEIC) offices  discuss economic directions, ex-'  amples of projects, and the application process under the  Canadian Jobs Strategy for  federal funding.  After a welcome by Dr.  Douglas K. Jardine, Acting  Principal, Capilano College,  Irene Lugsdin reviewed current  economic conditions, research  on economic development and  the implementation plans  adopted by the Sunshine Coast  Regional District.  The next conference, on  forestry, scheduled for January  at the Sechelt campus, was  discussed in relation to taking  implementation steps in that  sector.  Panel members (from left to right): Tom Nishimura, CEIC  Counsellor; Alan Smith, College Planner; Betty Anne Merry and  Ralph Stokes from the CEIC Regional Office; and Joan  Cowderoy, Co-ordinator - Volunteer Action Centre.  Tom Nishimura, local CEIC  counsellor, gave an overview of  the six programs which can  generate funding for individuals, groups, businesses or  education.

The Cedars  Pub, across the highway from  the Sunnycrest Mall in Gibsons  is just the spot.  With its west coast wood and  framed mirrors, knick knacks  and brassware, sandblasted  glass and sturdy wooden tables,  the Cedars pub has a cosy atmosphere and the day we went  for lunch the crowds had thinned so we could choose a quiet  corner.  The menu changes daily, and,  while not large, offers a variety  of choices, from soup and sandwich to salads and baron of  beef.  My companion, who had  developed a healthy appetite  after a long morning's work,  went for the pork cutlette, and  what a wise choice! Accompanied by mashed potatoes with  gravy, fresh steamed broccoli,  cantaloupe on the side and baked apples, the cutlette was  generous in size and tender to  taste. After a mouthful my  companion was moved to say  -"I'm definitely going to enjoy  this!" For $4.50 it's a deal  that's hard to beat.  I decided to try the Cedars'  gourmet burger - six ounces of  lean ground beef with 'the  works' - and believe me, it was  more than I could handle. On a  Kaiser bun the burger was pure  beef,   and  indeed  lean,   with  bacon, mushrooms, cheese,  tomatoes, lettuce, and fried  onions. At $3.95 the price was  certainly just right.  Soup of the day was beef,  tomato and vegetable, 95 cents  a largish bowl, or $2.95 for the  soup and a substantial ham  sandwich.  Also on the menu that day  was a choice of Caesar or  garden fresh salad, with.garlic  toast - $3.50 for the large size,  $2.25 the small. A Spanish  omelette with toast at $3.95 and  baron of beef barbecued at  $2.25 alone, or $3 with salad  rounded out the selection.  The Cedars has a small television set as well as a larger  screen, and, with its sports  channel, it's the perfect watering hole for those with an interest in sport. There are dart  boards, a couple of unintrusive  video games and a fooze ball  game for those who like to  entertain themselves. ���  One of the most pleasant  features at the Cedars is the  solarium; with a veritable jungle  of plants, highlighted by a  beautifully crafted brass parrot  hanging on a perch, it's a comfortable place to sit - the  daylight makes it doubly so  -although a little chilly on these  abnormally cold days.  All in all the Cedars can be a  charming spot for lunch - the  food, is excellent, the service  friendly and efficient, and the  price is very moderate.  *4^  C-''/'TYl i     ' v  { / ���'' / 11    I I _  role as facilitator for this funding; in training possibilities;  and outlined the process the college has followed in developing  a successful application for a  job training project in  Squamish.

Points which came out of the  afternoon were that few proposals had been received; that  the programs were shifting emphasis from generating projects  which benefited the community  and kept people working; to  quality training for individuals  with permanent job placements  likely; and that the programs  were targeted at the private sector.  The application process was  explored and proved to be one  of negotiation and refinement  withtthe help of the CEIC staff.  The need, became apparent  for community groups to join  forces on well thought out,  comprehensive applications  concerning those economic sectors which are most suitable for  growth. The need for employers  to know about the funding programs also surfaced. CEIC personnel stressed the need for an  Advisory Council to give input  locally in the applications process.  The suggestion was made that  a clearinghouse was needed to  screen ideas, match projects,  and help work on proposals.  Irene Lugsdin volunteered her  services to provide technical  help, but not to actually write  proposals.  Out of the afternoon sessions  came clarification of funding  guidelines, an appreciation of  the application process.  This conference was a model  for similar forums in North  Vancouver and Squamish,  again to be co-sponsored by  Capilano College and CEIC.  Notes on the conference are  available from April Struthers,  Community Services Assistant,  Capilano College 885-9310.  Guidelines on the CEIC programs are available at the local  CEIC office.

Coast News, December^ 1985  Board recommends forma  to handle chi  The Professional Development committee of School  District 46, headed by Trustee  Dave Mewhort has come up  with a format recommended for  implementation   in   all   the  abuse  schools of the district to inform  and instruct on various aspects  of child abuse.  Speaking at last Tuesday's  school board meeting Mewhort  QUALITY HANDMADE WOODEN PRODUCTS  Wooden rocking horses, butter knives, jewellery boxes, cedar chests,  towel bars, bread boards, walking sticks, bird houses, small cabinets  and more; all in the store warmed by a wood-burning stove.  The Country Pumpkin  Hwy 101 & Martin Rds., Gibsons  said that members of the Cana-  dian Union of Public  Employees, Sunshine Coast  Teachers' Association principals had met on November 4  to iron out wrinkles in the program and had come up with a  format whici' is accceptable to  all.  The information package  could include what happens  when a report of abuse is initiated, the Interministry Child  Abuse Handbook; a Staff  Handbook presently being  prepared by Stephanie Crane,  video presentations and extracts  from provincial law.  A workshop is also to be  organized, perhaps by Drew  McKee, for district personnel,  such as maintenance personnel,  bus drivers etc.  The board agreed to the  recommended format in principle, and made funds available,  to support the initiative up to  $500, which will adequately  cover the expected costs of its  implementation. The board also  instructed the superintendent,  John Denley, to have the information package assembled as  soon as possible.  ��� AUTOMOTIVE e  NEED TIRES?

Mon.-Fri.   8 a.m. - 5 p.m.  Stand or sit facing south. Look up at about a 60�� angle and locate the square of Pegasus. The four stars  that form the square are bright and stand out well against a dark sky. Sweep your binoculars or telescope  towards the area of sky that Halleys now occupies. (See finderchart) Position your observing instrument  slightly above the comet's charted position and begin slowly sweeping with a side to side motion. Work  your way down until you reach the comet.  Sky notes  Tracking Halley's Comet  by Neil Sandy  For viewers in the northern  hemisphere December may be  the best time to see comet  Halley.  Still travelling towards the  sun Halley gets closer to the  western horizon as the month  goes by.  In January its low proximity  to the horizon makes veiwing it  considerably more difficult but  certainly worthwhile as the  comet will appear much  brighter and will hopefully be  sporting a tail.  During February comet  Halley reaches perihelion.  Perihelion means Halley is at  the point in its orbit that is  closest to the sun. Halleys will  be unobservable for the whole  month.  Halley will re-emerge in the  morning sky in March, but will  be so low on the horizon that  seeing it will be difficult at best.  It moves even lower in April,  and won't be seen again until  May. Unfortunately its best  showing will be over and it will  fade rapidly as it moves away  from the sun, not to return  again until the year 2061.  OBSERVING TIPS  Allow your eyes at least 10  minutes of darkness to adapt  before you start looking for the  comet. The darker the sky, the  brighter the comet will appear,  so avoid lit up areas as best you  can.  If you need a light for moving  around or reading your charts  you can paint your flashlight  bulb red or wrap the end with  red cellophane; red light won't  hinder your night vision.  Study the chart well. The  "square" stars are very bright  and the square itself is 17�� wide,  so look for something big. The  other constellations are faint  and require a dark sky to be  seen well.  From our viewpoint the stars  appear to rise in the east and set  in the west. This is actually the  earth's rotation creating an illusion.  If you look out at 7:30 p.m.  the area shown on the finder-  chart will be due south. If you  look several hours later the area  will appear to have moved to  the   southwest   and   slightly  lower.  When using variable power  telescopes and binoculars  always look for the object with  the lowest power possible. High  powers tend to amplify any  unsteadiness, make the field of  view smaller and everything you  look at appears darker and less  clear.  The comet should appear as a  small, round patch of light. A  tail may or may not be visible.  Keep track on a regular basis  and watch for changes in the  comet's brightness, size and tail  length.  For more information, call  Neil Sandy at 886-8356.

You'd probably feel the same  way residents of B.C.'s  Kootenay region and  shareholders in British Columbia Resources Investment Corporation (BCRIC) feel about  the northeast coal project.  Shareholders in BCRIC have  borne the brunt of the government's policy, according to  Westar Mines President Gary  Livingstone. Westar is BCRIC's  coal mining subsidiary for the  former Kaiser operation in  southeastern B.C.  Livingstone says this year  northeast coal has cost his company 400,000 tonnes in  shipments, $28 million in  revenue or about 100 jobs.  The other major producer in  the southeast, Fording Coal,  has also been hit hard. Fording  president Jack Morrish says his  company is willing to live with a  share of the oversupply problem  but feels that northeast coal has  caused the southeast region to  "shoulder the entire problem",  problem".  Northeast coal is a political  development and the Socreds  are using their influence with  the Japanese to buy northeast  coal, at the expense of private  sector producers in the  Kootenays. Local people feel  their tax dollars are being used  to put them out of work and  they don't like it..  In developing northeast coal,  Bill Bennett's government made  a bad business decision, using  taxpayers' money. They spend  hundreds of millions of tax  \. dollars to open two new coal  mines during a time of stagnant  demand for coal, declining  prices, and worker layoffs in the  southeast.  The wisdom of northeast coal  was questioned from the beginning. For example, a study done  in 1980 for the mayors of the  southeast coal, region recommended aginst the project. It  pointed out that there was not a  sufficient market to absorb coal  from both northeast and  southeastern B.C.  Unfortunately the Socreds  did not listen. Bill Bennett went  ahead and spent about $700  Aquaculture zoning  bedevils SCRD  A meeting between the  regional board and; the  Ministry of Lands, Parks and  Housing regional director for  the lower mainland, Mr. Joe  Loyer, is to be arranged by  Minister of Lands, Parks and  Housing, Anthony Brummet,  according to a letter received by  the Sunshine Coast Regional  District (SCRD) board at last  Thursday's meeting.  The meeting is io, deal with  the thorny problem of  aquaculture zoning on the Sunshine Coast, a problem made  more complicated and controversial by the Wood Bay and  Earls Cove Scantech developments.  . In the letter Brummet says  that he takes 'no issue with the  role that the regional district has  played jin ^promoting aquaculture on the Sunshine Coast';  He goes on to congratulate  the board for their initiatives in  developing the industry but says  that he has found no illegalities  in the way in which Scantech  was issued its temporary permit  to install a fish farm at Wood  Bay.  Area A alternate director  William Lawrenuk strenuously  objected to the way in which the  board has handled this problem, and pointed to by-law 264  as the cause of much of the recent controversy. Lawrenuk  also said that he felt the board  did not give enough consideration to the question and that  they must immediately address  the problem.  Planning director Brett  McGillivray, disagreed with  ^Lawrenuk. In a conversation  with the Coast News  McGillivray said that although  Lawrenuk had been conscientious in coming to many board  meetings he had unfortunately  missed many of the planning  committee meetings where  aquaculture zoning and the  Scantech problem had been  thrashed out at great length.  Reviews of the status of  waterfront are presently being  undertaken and the board has  tabled the question until the inauguration of newly elected  Area A Director Gordon  Wilson so that he can participate fully in the matter.  ���������' In further correspondence to  the board, the Area A Area  ? Planning;'���'���"Comriifssidft (APC) *  has ^quested that the planning  develop a settlement plan for  Area A, primarily to avoid further conflicts arising out of the  R-3 zoning presently found in  by-law 96.  The APC asks that any development permits pertaining to  the Scantech Earls Cove proposals be held in abeyance until  the SCRD has clarified the zoning in that area. The APC indicates that it cannot support  any Scantech proposal at Earls  Cove at this time, not only  because of zoning confusion but  because the future ramifications  of the proposed use of the  Scantech property are as yet.  unknown.

Along with a  number of serious financial problems, trie Socred minister Don  Phillips has said the hole on one  of the northeast mines was put  in the wrong place.  In response to pressure from  the Socred government, the  Japanese are buying 100 per  cent of output from the northeast. They're also paying a  price 20 per cent higher than  coal from the southeast.  Meanwhile, southeastern coal  producers have faced three  volume cuts and two price cuts  by the Japanese since 1982.  Over 800 jobs have, been lost in  the region since 1981. This  represents about $24 million in  salaries and wages gone from  the region. As the president of  BCRIC's southeast coal mine  put it, "we're taking it right on  the nose".  It's no way to build a province.  Cote Abmi tjeti/t Cm?
