  Coast News, December 16,1985'  #��>  Season's greetings  As we move towards the twenty-first century we move  further and further away from the traditions of our past  and, in the great welter of change that accompanies our  progress, somehow, we are the losers.  When Mary and Joseph took that long journey to  Bethlehem almost 2000 years ago times were troubled,  they were poor as were most of the people living under the  rulership of Herod. Their survival and the happy birth of  Jesus represents a triumph over what might have been insurmountable odds,  Today, Christmas for many is a battle against the  pocket book and a thickening waistline, but for millions it  is a time of want and need.  There are great moments of true charity - gifts with a  meaning beyond price. We think of organizations like the  Elves Club, of those who work in distant lands to help the  starving and the sick. These are the things that carry the  spirit of Christmas - but it is a sad comment on our world  today that so many have so great a need.  If the spirit of Christmas were to move us every day of  the year, perhaps wecould recapture some of the peace we  have lost along the way.  -A warm and loving Christmas, one and all.  A tragedy  Words really cannot do justice to the shock of horror  and disbelief which encompassed the entire Sunshine  Coast when the word of little Jenny May's terrible death  swept through our community last Saturday.  That one so young, so sweet, so pretty could be so terribly fated. What kind of person could the perpetrator be?  What is our society coming to when such sickness stalks  among us.  The hearts of all the people on the Sunshine Coast go  out to the grieving and bereaved parents.

Harold spoke glowingly of  him and the friendship the two  men had enjoyed for many  years. I put the picture aside for  several months and it was by  chance that I finally decided to  begin research for the cut-line to  go beneath it a couple of weeks  before Christmas.  It couldn't have been a more  fortunate choice of timing. 1  called Jamie Dixon, one of  Johnny's children, to ask him  for some details of his father's  life. At first it seemed that we  may have to leave the photo until the new year because it was  shortly after Christmas, 1981,  that Johnny passed away and  the memories might be painful.  But Jamie talked to his  mother, Mrs. Mary Madelaine  Dixon, and she said that she'd  be happy to see the photo in the  newspaper and to read about a  man who was, as it turned out,  something of a legend.  Born in 1918, Johnny spent  his first ten years at Hunae-  Chin, at the top of Jervis Inlet -  the name itself means 'as far as  you can go', and then began his  life as a logger.  It was steam logging when  Johnny first took to the side-  hills and he worked for 25 to 35  cents a day. He started out at  Tsoh-Nye or Deserted Bay splitting wood for the stoker; he  worked hard and it wasn't too  many years before he was rigging trees. Johnny eventually  became the number one head  loader on the Inlet and there are  a lot of loggers around today  who learned their skills from  Johnny Joe.  He worked for Eric Gustaf-  son for years and the two men  became close friends. Arno and  Clarence Gustafson were logging in those days too, and Dave  Norden, and Jack the cook.  Johnny stayed with the Gustaf-  sons until the camp finally pulled out of Jervis Inlet.  Johnny was well-liked by the  loggers and he came to know a  good number of them. It was  the days of the Union Steam  ships and Johnny travelled extensively up the coast. He knew  everyone and he was the kind of  man that people were glad to see  and sorry when he went on his  way.  Proud of his heritage,  Johnny used his knowledge of  local edibles to tease his coworkers. Deserted Bay was  abundant in shell fish - oysters,  clams and crabs - and Johnny  would bring these delicacies up  to the landing where he cooked  them over the fire at lunch time.  All the rest of the men had  sandwiches and cookies and the  tantalizing smells were more  than they could bear. Johnny,  who'd eaten his fill of sea-food  was only to glad to trade and it  became a bit of a ritual.  It was June 20, 1938, when  Mary and Johnny married and  to this day Mrs. Dixon calls  them "forty three and a halt  wonderful years." Mary and  Johnny had 15 children during  those years and looked after 11  more. It was common to seat  almost 30 people for a meal - including grandparents and  friends. Today there are 22  grandchildren and one great  grandchild from that fruitful  union.  Children were important to  Johnny and he'd always been  around lots of them - his family  had been fourteen in number -  and it was his love for the young  ones that led to his role as Santa  on the Sechelt Indian Band  reserve.  It was a job he filled for thirty  years. Jamie reminisced about  those days.  "He played his part well and  he'd tease the Elders as well as  the little ones. The kids always  had to have a story to tell him or  a song to sing before he'd give  them a gift. He even teased his  mother, unmercifully, and people would be in tears from  laughter at the end of the evening.  "He got all the Christmas  trees for the reserve too. You  know, he was a man who seemed to brighten up the room, no  matter where he was.  "During the thirties when  times were tough, if he were  eating in a restaurant, he would  often send his own dinner over  to someone he thought was  hungry and had no money, and  when he and my mother were in  Wenatchee picking apples he  gave a family with a new baby  all my brother's baby clothes,  the cot, everything."  Fishing was also a great love  of. Johnny's; he made a dug-out  canoe for salmon fishing, using  hand-lines and Jamie  ��� remembers going out with him  many times. "There were more  fish in those days," he mused.  Later Johnny had his own  gas boat, and he always made  sure that everyone on the  reserve had enough fish to eat.  He also had a trap line at  Deserted Bay and he hunted for  venison as well, sharing his kill  with those in need. His last  boat, a gill-netter, was named  the Kstrellita for his youngest  daughter, Loretta.  The whole family spent many  happy years at Tsoh-Nye,  fishing, swimming, hunting.  "We always had wild animals  for pets," Jamie remembered.  "They didn't live in cages or  anything, but they'd always  come around and visit us. There  were owls and grouse, deer and  bears. My father was a great  swimmer and one time when he  was seining, some dolphins got  caught in the nets. They were  trying to jump over the edge of  the nets which were corked, but  they couldn't get out and the  'nets were cutting their noses and  making them bleed.  "Dad jumped into the water  and lowered the edges of the  nets so that the dolphins could,  swim out. When he swam out  of the net the dolphins swam  ; around him and they played  together for a long time before  they swam away."  Johnny Joe was a rare man  -one who had time for all those  around him. Life for him was  full and joyful and his passing  in 1981, just after Christmas,  has left a gap that is impossible  to fill.  "If he was here today I know  he'd want to wish everyone a  Merry Christmas. He'd want  everyone to have a good time  but a safe one," said Jamie.  "He was a very caring man."  emorieg  of       .'(  ��� ��  Christmas  by Maryanne West  Christmas!    I've   always^  thought the preparations for the;  big day are just as much furfc  perhaps more fun, than the day>\  itself. Especially when there are? j  small   children   in   the  home*.*  eagerly crossing off the dayj*  and   wondering   aloud   about  those   oddly-shaped   parceR  which   are   stashed   away   ia  closets all over the house. Thl  more people there are to hel|  with the preparations the more  fun it is.  Now that the children arj��  grown and spending Christma*,  in their own homes or far away  places, it's natural that wherk  rolling out the cookie dough  one's mind goes back to those'  years when there were excited,  young helpers around the table,;  even a boxer who loved to sit ons  a chair to watch, (even without,  drooling!)   and   from   th&  kaleidoscope of memories one  Christmas   from   the   1950'$,-  stands out as the best we evet  had. y  A couple of days before*  Christmas I found myselt  answering the phone and saying,  to Mother Superior at the:  residential school in Sechelt that-  yes, of course we'd be delighted'  to have three little girls whose  parents hadn't been able to gefc  over from Vancouver Island to;  take them home for the;  holidays.  Only after I'd put down the  phone did I begin to think ol  how I was going to cope witfr  three extra children. We had,  enough beds and we could boiH  row extra blankets, a couple of  dollars at the dime store woujd  take care of the extra stocking^  but with the budget already  stretched to the limit how would  we get toys for three more  children and match the dolls  which our girls had asked for  and were already packed and  hidden away.  The problem solved itself in  the way such things do in small  caring   communities.   Our  children and their friends went  through   their  own toys and  books for those in good condition and I went to look at dolls  at the five and 10 cents store in  Bal's Block to ask if I could  make a deal on three dolls or  pay for them later. Hearing of  my reasons for wanting three  more dolls they said at once  they could do better than that  and   if   I'd   come   back   on  Christmas Eve they'd have the  dolls as a gift for the children.  What  a culture shock  for  those  three  little girls whose  almost only contact with non-  Native people up to that time  had  been the  Sisters  at the  school, to be dropped into a  strange family full of excitement  about its own Christmas traditions. They must.have thought  us quite mad and I remember  Doris who was about 10 years  old looking at the chimney from  outside and shaking her head.  "No  one,"   she  said   firmly,  "could possibly get down that  chimney."  For all their skepticism and  they obviously thought these  stories of a fat man, and a sled  full of toys pulled by reindeer  was a poor joke at best, it was  difficult to get them to sleep on  Christmas Eve despite a busy  evening decorating the tree and  singing carols.  Not until they were safely  asleep could Frank and I begin  the task of filling stockings and  sorting the toys into six piles for  wrapping, so that each child  had new toys and books and  their share of second hand ones.  It was the early hours of the  morning before we had finished  and tiptoed around with the  stockings for each bed.  Even after the early morning  excitement of opening their  stockings, they were still reluctant, when it came to opening  the presents under the tree, to  believe that any were really for  them, and again a week later  when it was time to return to  school it was necessary to  reassure them that the gifts were  theirs to keep.  In retrospect I'm impressed  with their tolerance of strange  surroundings and customs and  of how quickly they adjusted  and made themselves a part of  the family. Almost 30 years  later we remember them with  love and how much more they  gave to us than we were able to  give to them. Merchants appreciate letter 'writer  Editor:  'fln response to M. Farley's  'Shop at Home'" letter, I'm sure  P;speak on behalf of all small  businesses on the coast in offering a heartfelt thank you for  his/her support and understanding.  2 He/she is correct in saying we  do care about our customers,  usually at least 10 and up to 16  hours a day, to the tune of  several thousand borrowed  dollars, and a few thousand  more in interest. I must also  mention such side benefits as  nervous tics, neck-on-wire  riightmare syndrome, chronic  aind obnoxious and.  unreasonable cheerfulness and a  brand new one, small business  rash.  The foregoing, some funny  stuff from a (closet) 3 a.m.  aspiring humourist, hopefully  illustrates the fact that we do  dare about our customers, - why  else would we do it?!! It's not  cL  really the money, many of us  have become non-profit community services in the past three  years or so!  Most of us do it because we  love the challenge, the stimulation, and most of all, the people. If it wasn't for the people,  most of whom we know by  name, it would be a real grind.  As a matter of fact, if no people  came there would be no  business, which I think was the  point M. Farley was after.  The point I would like to  make is that without your support, the business community  would not have survived, but  for the most part it has -because  of your support.  So, on your way into Vancouver next time, stop in town  so we can at least say a collective thank you and Merry  Christmas!  Pssst..  the trip..  .you may save yourself  D.

Presently the daily death rate  of children is in the area of  40,000 per day world wide. One  of the main causes of death is  the ravage of disease.  UNICEF is currently working  on a world wide immunization  program and welcomes any support. As Peter Ustinov,  dedicated humanitarian in the  cause of the world's children,  put it "the cost of immunizing  the children of the world is the  same as the cost of three jet  fighters." He further stated that  "the sophisticated weapons of  today are already killing people  and are not yet exploded even."  I heartfully urge all peace loving people to acknowledge the  plight of the children and support the UNICEF campaign. I  also invite fellow Canadians to  support the peace movement by  bringing pressure to bear on all  levels of governments to divert  defence spending to peaceful  life saving endeavours.  In the true spirit of Christmas  let us have peace on-earth.  James Nuotio  For 'war toys  Editor:  Re: Dianne Evans article on  Children and War Toys,  December 9 issue.  There are small aggressive nations stockpiling nuclear  weapons with less conscience  than Canada.  Why doesn't Dianne Evans  go outside this country and  work over their children?  Canada needs kids who grow  up with family ties who are willing to join the Armed Forces  and be ready to defend their  homeland.  The Armed Forces include intelligent "Brass" who are interested in preventing war.

Speaking at the town  council's planning committee  meeting last week, Rob Buchan  said the logging of Elphinstone  should be monitored closely by  the area's local governments.  "At the moment," he said,  "we are vague on what the  Ministry of Forests is proposing. Their stated intention is to  proceed at an early date with  further plans to log the mountain."  "It looks like a scarred-up  brute right now," Alderman  Jack Marshall said. "They're  not doing much reforestation  up there, are they?"  "We don't know," said  Buchan.  Ken Matthews, an officer of  the B.C. Forest Service in  Sechelt, told the Coast News  that a timber license was sold in  September to Sandy Gibb Logging.  Twenty hectares on the front  face of Elphinstone (facing Gib  sons) at an elevation of 900 to  1000 metres, and including the  headwaters of Langdale Creek,  will be logged out probably starting in the spring, Matthews  said.  He added that the section was  laid out "in the safest way  possible" to prevent problems  downslope.  He said there has been no  logging activity oh that side of  Elphinstone in 15 or 20 years  and that it's been left to naturally regenerate.  The newly leased logging  area, when completed, will be  looked at by the Forest Service  for possible replanting, he said,  but will probably be left to;  regenerate naturally as well.       ;  A section on the other side of  Elphinstone, above Roberts-;  Creek, will also see logging ac- ���  tivity in the future, Matthews,  said, but he was unable to pro-',  vide details.

PUBLIC  NOTICE  The first phase of the new regional house  numbering system, from Langdale to Sechelt,  is nearing completion.  HOUSE NUMBERS ARE NOW AVAILABLE  TO PROPERTY OWNERS IN THE TOWN OF  GIBSONS, and may be obtained at the  Municipal Hall on South Fletcher Road, upon  completion of application.  As the new system will soon be in use by all  emergency services, it is of benefit to all  owners to obtain their new numbers as soon as  possible.  Rob Buchan  MUNICIPAL PLANNER & APPROVING OFFICER  Police urge anyone with information about the abduction and  murder of Genoe May on Friday, December 13 to contact the  RCMP immediately.  Coast horrified  The Sunshine Coast is struck  with anguish and horror as it  mourns the death of three year  old Genoe "Jenny" May.  Jenny's body was discovered  late Saturday morning on the  side road leading into Cliff  Gilker Park above Roberts  Creek.  RCMP spokesmen say foul  play is strongly suspected.  Jenny disappeared from her  Bella Beach Motel room in  Davis Bay Friday morning  around 5:30 a.m.  Local RCMP and more than  100 volunteers conducted an  area-wide search far into Friday  night. The girl's body was  found 11:30 a.m. Saturday by a  ground search team.  The police are appealing to  the public to bring forward any  information which may help  with their investigation.  Investigators from the Sechelt  and Gibsons detachments will  be assisted by three members of  the Vancouver RCMP Serious  Crime Unit, who arrived on the  coast Saturday.  Reward offered  The RCMP has also expressed their appreciation for all the  help they received and feel very fortunate that the community  was able to rally together in their support.  A trust fund has been set up for a reward for information  leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons  who are responsible for the death of three year old Genoe  May, whose body was found last Saturday in Cliff Gilker  Park, after her disappearance from a Davis Bay motel early  Friday morning.  Contributions may be left in accounts at any of the Sunshine Coast Credit Unions or arrangements may be made by  calling Russell Crum at 886-2207.  The Sunshine Coast Aquaculture Association has already  put up $5000 as a reward.  Anyone with information, however insignificant it may  seem to be, please call the RCMP detachment at either  Sechelt, 885-2266 or at Gibsons, 886-2245.  Speaking on behalf of the bereaved family,'Oddvin Vedo  told the Coast News that rthe unstinting efforts rrfo'de by the/1'  more than 100 searchers who combed the area daj?and night,  and the support offered by the RCMP and the Bella Beach  Motel, search headquarters, is deeply appreciated.  Gibsons goes to court  The Town of Gibsons decided last week to take a  Vancouver-based company to  court for failing to purchase a  business licence while soliciting  in town boundaries.

Shiron  solicited local businesses for  advertising on the book cover  but neglected to obtain a $100  business licence or post a $1000  bond, which is required of nonresident businesses in order to  ensure honest dealings.  A registered letter from the  town staff in early November  asking the company to obtain a  licence has not been answered.  Under the by-law Shiron  could be fined from $25 to  $500.  Clerk-treasurer Lorraine  Goddard asked council last  Tuesday if the licence inspector  should be directed to proceed  with prosecution.  Alderman Norm Peterson  warned that there were two  companies soliciting merchants  for vinyl covers and that council  better make sure it has the right  one.  But Goddard assured him  that Shiron was the one.  "Enforcement of the by-law  should be the course," said  Alderman Bob Maxwell.  "Otherwise why have the bylaw?"  Council passed a motion  allowing prosecution.  Goddard said in a conversation that the town's by-law enforcement officer has found  some local business people willing to testify against Shiron,  Trail Bay Centre,  Sechelt  885-3295  NOTICE  GIBSONS READY  MIX  Will be closed Dec. 23rd til'  Jan. 3/86 Inclusive to allow  everyone to enjoy the holiday.  We wish you and  yours a very Happy  Christmas and a  Merry New Year.  Larry Rendleman  & Staff  Cabaret still  under scrutiny  Gibsons Council is not finished with Elphie's Cabaret.  Two weeks ago council was  told by its lawyers that under  the Liquor Act it had no  authority to roll back Elphie's  hours of operation to a 1 a.m.  closing.  Currently Elphie's closes at 2  a.m. and council says it has  received several complaints  from nearby residents about ob-  noxious disturbances of  patrons, often having come  from earlier-closing drinking  places, leaving the cabaret at  closing time.  Last week Alderman Bob  Maxwell said council should  pursue one of the options laid  down by its lawyers: prohibit  after 1 a.m., under the Noise  By-law, the cabaret's entertainment.  "The only way we can  remove the problem," said  Maxwell, "is by taking away the  attraction."  Planner Rob Buchan told  council that Elphie's had  originally been zoned as a 180  seat cocktail lounge which was  intended to be ancillary to a  proposed hotel.  "The presentation to council  was never for a cabaret,"  Buchan said.  Mayor Diane Strom asked  for time to discuss more effective policing will; the RCMP  and to talk with Elphie's'  owner.  "At this point I would not  recommend we move to close  the premises," she said.  Maxwell went on to say that,  contrary to published accounts,  Gibsons RCMP Staff Sergeant  Smith had not initiated the  move to roll back hour-.  Rather, council was acting, in  co-operation with Smith, on  behalf of complaints from people in the area.  "The cabaret has told us," he  added, "that if they did not  have that last hour, their  business would not be viable. So  we have to decide: are we going  to support private enterprize at  the expense of private citizens?"  Volunteers get  no Gibsons aid  The Sunshine Coast Volunteer Action Centre (VAC) will  not be getting a $500 grant from  Gibsons, nor will the Parent-  Tot drop in receive $1,500, Gibsons Council decided last week  in a finance committee meeting.  Both groups had applied for  grants to meet their 1986 budget  requirements.  Alderman Bob Maxwell said  he disputed the VAC's claim to  recruit volunteers for the many  agencies on the coast it lists in a  summary of activities.  "I would say these organizations recruit their own  volunteers. The community is  endowed   with   them;   some  would pay to be volunteers.  This is misrepresentation,"  Maxwell said.  Alderman Gerry Dixon, who  is finance committee chairman,  warned: "Open the door, you'll  be with them for a long time."  Council has set aside $3,000  for miscellaneous grants in its  provisional 1986 budget, which/  Dixon called a "hold-your-'  position budget reflecting the"  difficult times." ?  Traditionally half of the  grant money is spread out evenly between the Sea Cavalcade,  its queen, and the Chamber of  Commerce, leaving $1,500 to be  awarded to groups in the community.

Secretary-treasurer, Larry Jardine, administers the oath of office to two new regional district directors at  the December 12 meeting. On the left, Peggy Connor watches as Jack Marsden signs the papers, and on  the right Jim Gurney looks on as Gordon Wilson is sworn in. ���Dianne Evans photo  At the SCRD  Marsden and Wilson sworn in  Two new regional directors  were inaugurated at the  December 12 Sunshine Coast  Regional District board meeting  and some presentations made to  departing directors.  Jack Marsden was sworn in  as Area C director and Gordon  Wilson as director for Area A.  As well, Alderman Norm  Peterson was welcomed to the  board as the new Gibsons  representative.  After the inaugurations, an  election was held to choose a  new chairman for the board,  and Jim Gurney was the successful candidate, with Peggy  Connor as vice chairman.  Gurney's first duties were the  presentation of a commemorative plaque to outgoing Area  C Director Jon McRae along  with a memento from the board  for his four years of service.  Gurney also added congratulations from the board on the occasion of McRae's recent marriage to Pam Custance and  wished the couple many years of  happiness.  A similar plaque and memento were also to be presented to  outgoing Area A Director Ian  Vaughan but instead will be  forwarded to him as he was not  present at the meeting.  Gurney also spoke warmly of  outgoing Gibsons representative  John Burnside and indicated  that a memento would be given  to him in recognition of his service to the board.  "We would have given him a  plaque too," Gurney said, "but  we felt that that was more appropriate coming from his own  council-. Although Mr. Burnside  and I often did not see eye to  eye there is no question that he  represented his constituents  energetically. He worked very  hard and looked after Gibsons'  interest well."  SCRD moves  Fish farm zone withdrawn  It was standing room only at  the regional district board  meeting, December 12 when a  report on aquaculture zoning  was presented to the board by  the planning department along  with an amendment to By-law  264 which would see aquaculture taken out of Wl zoning  altogether.  The new approach would  allow site specific appeals for  zoning amendments to be made  to the board. The report calls  the amendment a 'short term  approach' and recommends collection of information about  aquaculture zoning and sites.  Addressing the report newly  elected Area A Director Gordon  Wilson said he thought conflict  had arisen surrounding  aquaculture because of misinformation and the speed with  which the industry had  developed. The fact that the  process by which leases are procured is not well known has also  created some problems,  specifically at Wood Bay, where  an aquaculture company,  Scantech, has installed a fish  farm adjacent to residential  property.  "Maybe we haven't discussed  this enough," Wilson said.  "There are questions to be  answered on environmental,  societal and economic issues. I  don't believe enough research  has been done on aquaculture in  Canadian waters."  Wilson has undertaken to  conduct some thorough  research on the matter and will  bring an interim report to the  board within 60 days.  As to site specific problems,  Wilson said that there is no  question that the industry is  rapidly developing and that the  board can do one of two things,  either sit back and react against  it or take the initiative and go to  the industry with assistance in  finding proper locations.  "We can help the industry  develop within the parameters  the people see fit," he said.  "Wood Bay problems came  about largely because of lack of  foresight in the planning component, and we have ended up  with conflict, and high emotions running on both sides.  "The fish farm has the legal  right to be there and the  residents have legitimate problems," Wilson continued, adding that he thought it was unfortunate that the board had  not been able to act quickly to  find a solution.  "The attention that this has  attracted , from . residents and  from the industry has done a  great deal of damage," he said.  The board does not have the  power to make foreshore zoning  but it can recommend to Lands,  Parks and Housing, Wilson  continued, although he said that  the government is perceived as  not listening enough to the people of the area who have turned  to the media as their only  recourse.  The board carried the motion  to adopt the amendment to the  by-law but did question the 60  days time frame Wilson had set  for his preparation of an interim report on aquaculture.  As well the board voted to  recommend against granting a  permanent lease to Scantech at  its Wood Bay site.  "The time lines are  pressing," Wilson stated. "The  Area   Planning   Commission  wants input and they want some  expertise. The industry won't  wait forever. We have to try to  do the responsible thing for  people who are prepared to invest here and we must put an  end to the conflict. We must be  prepared to take action to solve  the problem."  Reaction was mixed to the actions of the board; Scantech  principals were not happy to see  the zoning change which, if  passed through third reading  and final adoption, will make  them legally nonconforming.  There was guarded reaction  from Richard Webber, of lands,  : parks and housing.  "The permanent application  from Scantech is still under  review," he said, adding that  the zoning at Wood Bay is  technically permissible from a  legal point of view. Webber said  that he could not comment on  what effect the bylaw change  will have on aquaculture  although he anticipated a lot of  changes.  "We do pledge the minister's  support for the research program and will work closely with  the regional board in this  regard," Webber said.  Wood Bay and Earls Cove  residents see the amendment as  a small victory although they  are concerned that the minister  of lands, parks and housing,  Tony Brummet, will ignore the  recommendations of the  regional board and grant the  permanent   lease   anyway.

Both municipal representatives, Joyce Kolibas from  Sechelt and Norm Peterson  from Gibsons, voted against the  raise and newly elected Area A  Director Gordon Wilson abstained from the vote.  Under the new bylaw the  chairman of the board will  receive an annual stipend of  $10,000, each regional director  will receive $6,000 and each  municipal representative will  receive $4,000.  As well, chairmen of various  committees will receive an additional $2,000. Alternate directors will receive $150 for each  meeting attended on behalf of  the director, and the sum will be  deducted from the director's stipend. The alternates will receive  $25 for each meeting they attend as an observer.  Although the vote carried,  Wilson made an announcement  that he will put anything above  a three percent increase into the  Pender Harbour bursary fund  rather than accept what he sees  as too large an increase.  Speaking in defence of the increase Area D Director Brett  McGillivray said that he had  tried to minimize exploitation  and had tried to be fair in  recommending changes.  "The workload has increased  drastically," he said. "The truth  of the matter is that the number  of meetings one has to attend  has escalated and nothing has  Changing  patterns  affect  education  Ricki Moss of Continuing  Education made her annual  report to the school board at  last Tuesday's board meeting  and it was clear that the role of  Continuing education in the  '���'" -community is changing.'1  ,J To assess this role and to look  for new directions, an evaluation is being conducted here on  the Sunshine Coast under the  direction of David Short who  has been appointed coordinator.  The evaluation will allow  community input and will examine the types of courses being  offered, the needs of the public  and the way in which the service  is being administered.  Moss said that the continuous  use of school facilities being  booked through her department  is very time consuming and it is  hoped that eventually this will  be handled with the aid of a  computer. However, the move  by continuing education from  Sechelt to the District Resource  Centre has been positive, Moss  said, because it has made people  more aware of the resource centre and what it can offer the  community.  The 18 week aquaculture programme first of its kind in the  world, has been the major project of continuing education in  the past year and has been very  successful.  "The course teaches basic  skills which will help people to  succeed in a new industry,"  Moss explained. "However, we  are conscious of the number of  jobs available so the course  won't run again for a while.  North Island College has taken  the course and our instructors  are now teaching there as well as  in this district. I don't see why  we can't move the course  around the province to where it  is needed."  The types of(courses that people are taking has changed said  Moss and vocational courses are  now the most popular,  "anything to give the edge in  the job market" she added. For  example, two sixty hour courses  have been offered, one in  welding and the other for an  electrical ticket.  The mill shutdown and the  general climate of restraint has  led to a decrease in the numbers  of students, said Moss.  "Whole segments of the  population are moving,  especially those in the 25-45 year  age bracket. The working family is moving out and the older  person is moving in," she continued, adding that the evaluation will be looking at these  decreases and for this reason is  a welcome development.  been done to the stipend for  many years. I anticipate some  flak but we probably won't  have to change these rates for  another five to 10 years."  The new rates are in line with  the provincial norms and are  not salaries as such, but  recompense for time lost from  gainful employment, from the  many hours away from family  and friends and for the expenses  incurred in the execution of  duties.  Kolibas agreed that the  workload had increase enormously.  "But when we are scrambling  for tax dollars I just can't see  this much of an increase," she  said.  Jim Gurney, chairman of the  board, pointed out that a rate of  pay which reasonably compensates directors for the work they  perform should be acceptable.  "The board does much more,  we've taken on many more  jobs," he explained. "We have  proven that we can do the job  and we should be paid at the  same rate as our provincial  counterparts.  "If the end amount is correct,  then the original amount was  way too low," Gurney added.  "Parity and equity are all we  are seeking."  Jack Marsden, newly elected  Area C representative, who has  acted as an alternate director for  the past four years, said that the  jump seemed big to him at first,  and that the only reason he supported it was the fact that the  workload had increased.

Coast News, December 16,1985  Sechelt  Scenario  Auxiliaries have annual meeting  by Peggy Connor, 885-9347  The annual general meeting  of the St. Mary's Hospital Auxiliary, Sechelt branch met at the  Pebbles Restaurant on Monday,  December 9.  Pebbles was closed for the  lunch hour to accommodate the  great turnout of members, providing a most delicious lunch.  The new president of the  group is Peggy Cjallos; Vice-  President, Maries Kanaus; Vice  President-Executive officer,  Maureen Moorby; treasurer,  Lillian Loewen; publicity, Kay  Metcalfe.  The officers were sworn in  with a simple candlelight  ceremony by administrator of  St. Mary's Hospital Nich  Vucurevich.  Reports at the meeting showed that once again this auxiliary  had a very busy year. In-service  hours in the hospital of 4457 Vi  and out-service hours which includes knitting, fund raising,  meetings, administration etc.,  for a grand total of 17,132 Vi  hours.  Junior volunteer hours were  997, a good indication of the interest the young people are taking in the hospital.

Hear them sing at the Bethel  Baptist Church in the non-  denominational   evening   on  CLIP & MAIL TO ANTHONY BRUMMET  IS THIS JUSTICE?  On July 14, 1985 at 7 a.m. on a Sunday morning, a fish farm was installed at Wood Bay near  Secret Cove, adjacent to waterfront homes. This fish farm was placed there by Scantech  Resources, a company that has obtained a temporary permit of occupation (1 year) for the.  foreshore. This permit was issued to them on direct instructions from a deputy minister, Mr. Tom  Lee of the Ministry of Lands Parks arid Housing.  Normally a company would have to a'pply^fbr a permanent1 lease of the foreshore. Under this  procedure, Scantech Resources would have been required by the Land Act to post the property  and advertise their intentions to place a fish farm on the foreshore at this location. If this procedure had been followed, the residents in the area would have been aware of Scantech's intentions and would have had their opportunity to protest or not.  However, under a temporary license of occupation none of the above regulations apply, there  is no posting of the property, and no advertising required. Using this system a fish farm can be installed without forewarning to the area residents.  Mr. Bob Gilmour, David Butler and Richard Webber of Lands Parks and Housing have all been  quoted in the press, stating that if Scantech now invests large sums of money in developing the  site this will influence their decision in regards to the permanent lease. This appears to be a  gross twisting of the intent of the Land Act which is the law of the land. Using this procedure, any  company with enough money can buy itself a permanent lease for acres of foreshore with no  regard whatsoever to the rights and lifestyles of other residents who may have substantial investments in their properties.  At the beginning of this controversy, representatives of Lands Parks and Housing for this area  informed the Wood Bay residents and their regional board director that forty (40) letters of opposition to a permit application of this kind would likely cause them to deny the permit. The  residents of Wood Bay and their supporters have made dozens of phone calls and sent hundreds  of letters to Lands Parks and Housing, opposing this fish farm.  After five months of protest, Mr. Butler and Mr. Webber, the representatives for Lands Parks  and Housing for this area, have now informed the residents that if they do not accept this.fish  farm and icing plant in their area, a political decision will be made. In other words Mr. Brummet,  the Minister of Lands Parks and Housing, will decide where he wili place fish -farms on this coast.  The rights and investments of other people mean nothing.  The Ministry of Lands Parks and Housing is threatening to do this even though;  1 . The regional board has admitted that the zoning of the land for fish farms immediately adjacent to residential properties is a mistake that-they made under By-law 264 in March  1985. This they are attempting to correct.  2. The Ministry of Lands Parks and Housing may have acted too hastily in granting the temporary license of occupation to Scantech under controversial circumstances based on an  alleged threat of dying fish.  3 . Scantech has admitted at a meeting with the residents of Wood Bay that:  a. They have not yet purchased the property.  b. They fully realized that any investment they made in the property was made on the  basis of only a temporary permit, and was money invested at risk.  4 . There are miles of foreshore in the area where Scantech could locate and create the same  number of jobs and not damage other people's lifestyles and financial investments. This is  what all the other fish farmers have done, and have bothered no one.  WHY DOES THIS COMPANY WARRANT A POLITICAL  DECISION BY THE MINISTER OF LANDS PARKS AND  HOUSING?  Many areas of the Sunshine Coast were zoned for fish farms by. mistake under By-law 264 on  March 28, 1985. Fish farms, which are an ugly industrial use of the foreshore, and icing plants  which may smell for miles can now be located in these areas, affecting all residents both upland  and waterfront.  ALL CONCERNED RESIDENTS SHOULD WRITE OR MAIL THIS  ADVERTISEMENT TO:  Mr. Anthony Brummet,  Minister of Lands Parks and Housing.  Parliament Building,  Victoria, BC  V8V 1X4  Request that Scantech Resources be removed from Wood Bay and that a moratorium be placed on the granting of these leases for fish farms in the Sunshine Coast Regional District until proper zoning is in place and studies are made of the overall impact of this industry on the area.

Pam Custance  and Jon McRae decided to  become engaged when they  thought, "if we feel committed  why not just tie the knot?"  This is how they found  themselves on the ice of Nita  Lake in a world of whiteness,  Pam in her (her words) ghastly  pink ski suit and Jon in his ski  suit.  Joan Hinds, the marriage  commissioner for Whistler joined them in the cold, Mr. Hinds  was there as a witness and best  man for Jon was Gavin Yee  from the Longhorn Bar.  Pam is the daughter of Mr.  and Mrs. Barrie Custance of  West Sechelt and Jon is the  former area director for area C.  The honeymoon was spent at  Whistler where Pam was busy  learning to ski and now is busy  teaching Jon how to become a  horseman as she is an accomplished horsewoman, Jon's  expertise being a skier.  The date was November 26,  Tuesday.   Congratulations   to  - the happy couple.  s OLEKORGEN  ^ -Ole Kofgen^asva TtirfgTfme  y resident, good worker and a  very fine gentleman. The last  position he held before he  retired was as janitor of the  Sechelt Elementary School, so  he will be remembered by the  children of the school.  Ole passed away this last  week but he will be thought of  by many friends, his wife Joan  and the two boys they raised as  their own, with fond memories.  SPECIAL THANKS  The turnout of people to help  with the search for the small girl  lost Friday, December 13, was  an indication of a very  thoughtful community, rising  quickly to assist. Sad that the  ending was far from joyful.  The Bella Beach Motel provided hot soup and coffee to the  searchers as well as serving as a  centre. Fred Gasely and his  Search and Rescue group were  out in full force as were many  citizens who came forward to  offer their services. Cable 10  was quick to alert people of the  girl's absence. ���  The RCMP were very respon-  sible, providing divers,  helicopters and searchers.

It was necessary to  hold two sittings (which is why  we are planning larger accomodations.)  I wish that someone would  point out to the powers that  having an organization with  over 500 members who are all  pensioners in our midst is tantamount to having a thriving industry in the community.  We are not looking for handouts but a little sympathetic  support so that we can bring our  planning to fruition.  Once we know that we have  ���backing werwJlL.jnake t.he new,,  building pay its way. There is an  outstanding amount of business  experience in our ranks. That's  my lecture until the New Year.  Our thanks go to the Car  Lynn Catering for a most excellent preparation of the two  separate meals. I will not repeat  the menu but will say it was  traditional Christmas fare, very  well cooked and 'joy of joys'  the plates were hot and so was  the food. The service was excellent and we were not kept  waiting. Congratulations to Car  Lynn Caterers.  Both days we had a full turnout of 69'ers who sang many  traditional and well beloved  carols and songs. We wholeheartedly expressed our thanks  for the support shown to the  branch by the Shop-Easy in our  monthly draw. Many thanks  Shqp-Easy.  If I were to try to express  thanks to all the good people  who 'have helped as members  and supporters, the local papers  would have to run special editions Just to list our good  friends, and 1 would be in dutch  because 1 left someone out. So  Pm playing it safe and saying  thanks to everyone.  Members are reminded that  we have a monthly meeting on  December-< 19^ and-JSyQ-a- are  reminded of the New Years Eve  Dance. Tell your friends and get  your tickets in time. It's sure to  be a sell-out.  Elsie Elchison who has done  such a good job vof catering is  leaving the district but we have  a very welcome volunteer in the  person of Olive Marshall.  Welcome Olive. You will get  lots of support from the ladies.  Thanks go also * to all the  members who decorated the hall  and tables so fittingly.  Merry Christmas to all.

To all of you who take the  time to read this column  faithfully - and I know you are  out there - my thanks and appreciation, and may you all  I. have a happy healthy Christmas  with those you love.  To those of you who are sick  or lonely - may you get well  soon, and may you "find that  Z- there are people who' care and  who will help make this very  emotional time of year a special  one for you.  To those of you who may  have lost a dear one during this  past year - may you find comfort in memories of happy times  and Christmases spent with that  dear one.  To all the little children  whose eyes are aglow with  anticipation of Santa's visit,  which seems to take so long  when one is small - may all their  dreams come true on Christmas  morning.  To Rose and Diane in the  Book Store who make it a  delight for me to come to work  each day in their store for the  Coast News - special good  wishes from me to you.  A happy fire-free Christmas  season to all the fellows in the  volunteer fire department, and  their families. Thank you for  making us feel safer in our  homes, just knowing you are  there if we need you.  Lastly 1 send good wishes to a  special young friend, Erin Kelly.  May all the folks in Halfmoon  Bay help make your dream  come true by putting a few  dollars into the Royal Bank in  Sechelt to help you to buy a  vehicle which will accomodate  your wheelchair. No matter  how long it takes, we will try to  get you your dream.  A special thank you to the  Welcohie' Beach Community  Association, who, as a gesture  of appreciation of Katherine  and myself singing a few songs  at their Christmas dinner, kindly gave a donation toward's  Erin's fund.

Because the past chairrnkn, Janice Edmonds, will be running in a January by-election, an interim chairman was needed  for the meeting. However, It was decided by the board, that,  rather than waiting until the by-election results, a permanent  chairman would be elected and Don Douglas was the successful nominee, with Mary pelle Bulmer being chosen Vice-  chairman.  1  Cat found  Last Friday night, about cne mile south of Cliff Gilker  Park a black and white un-neatered male cat was found injured beside the road.

CREATIVE DE BRUYNS  Walking into the de Bruyn  home makes one's head spin.  Birds and strange coast Indian  like figures gaze down. All creations of Jan's nimble fingers.  Lifelike birds, carved into  natural positions and habitat,  with natural colouring, seem  ready to fly. The "talking  sticks" masks and panels look  so authentically native Indian  that one could be fooled. Jan  hastens to say he never sells his  work and while a very few are  copies; most are products of his  imagination.  He uses alder to carve the  masks. ,It carves like butter  when green and he works quick-  ly before it dries. Once dry it  becomes very hard. '  Jan has aa impressive array  of chisels butuiis favourite and  most frequently used tool is a  utility knife. I was shown a  beautiful bedroom suite made  by Jan because W couldn't find  furniture to fi\ a particular  bedroom. y  '     "   j  On every bed �� an example  of Betty de Bruyn-s quilting expertise.

Coast News, December 16,1985  Primary grade students at Gibsons Elementary School were  delighted with a visit by the RCMP's famous "Safety Bear" last  Wednesday. Kept well in hand by Constable Derek Crawford of the  Gibsons RCMP Detachment, "Safety Bear" came to find out what  the children had been learning in school about safety. He was pleased with what he heard and didn't hesitate about showing it. "Safety  Bear" also visited the other Elementary Schools in the Gibsons  Area. ~ ���Brad Benson photo  George  in  Gibsons  Views of peace  by George Cooper, .886-8520  The   exhibition   of   posters  presented  by  the  Society  of  Graphic Designers of Canada,  B.C. Chapter at Robson Square  this month warns us all too  vividly - war will now end it all.  Along   with   the   Shoshin  Society, a group of Japanese  and U.S. designers, the Canadian designers hope to see the  posters   shown   world-wide,  perhaps   even   in   China  and  Russia.  The posters are all the more  telling by being sparse of detail.  In one the sea wave's foam  turns into doves; in another the  caption says 'Fresh mushrooms  kill' and the illustration, the  mushroom bloom of an exploded bomb.  Many of the posters remind  us of Hiroshima; for example, a  dart board, the darts atomic  missiles.  Another,  a cherubic  face, cheeks puffed,  blowing  mightily   to   extinguish   the  candles of the cake, the anniversary of August 6. The candles  are smoking missiles ready to  launch.  And  still  another,  a  large   black   fountain   pen,  twisted and leaking ink, cap-  tionetiVi^The^iiexf time*; no one ''���  _ to sign the peace treaty.' .......  Most touching of all, the  poster that showed two  kindergarten pupils sitting side  by side, a Japanese and a European in the U.S. - comfortable  friends. The note accompanying  said in part, 'They haven't  found out yet why they should  hate each other.'  And then at the end of the exhibition hall, still last week quite  volubly under [construction by  the Italian workman, a nativity  scene or presepio, the largest  ever built outside of Italy.  These two exhibitions, likely  brought together quite by  chance, both bespeak peace.  The viewer goes away with  much to reflect upon, where do  war or peace take shape - in our  own minds, in our own  neighbourhoods?  ELECTIONS  Elections were held last Tuesday in Branch 109, Canadian  Legion, and the more than 100  members present returned the  following to office.  President for 1986 is Gladys  Sluis, the first woman to be  elected head of the branch. Vice  presidents are Dan Dawe, first,  and Bill Laing, second vice  president.  Secretary again is Larry  Boyd, and the five members of  the executive are Roy Harris,  Brian Lymer, Brian Swanson,  Frank Campbell, and John Pr-  ingle.  Gladys says she has selected  the following, their names to  come before the next general  meeting for approval, for appointed office: sergeant-at-  arms, Don Mcintosh who is  recently settled in Hopkins and  who has been a longtime legion  member in Richmond.  Service officer is Joan  Quarry, and chairman Doug  Dickson of Shoal Lookout.  Continuing as padre is  Reverend Alex Reid.  CATTLE WOES  News of highland cattle arriving in the Gibsons district  brought recollections of Cloe  Day's adventures with her  highland cattle which she kept  when she lived on Gower Point  Road near Kelly Road some  years ago.  When Cloe recounted those  experiences, she ended by saying they were hilarious. Cloe  has kept other animals in past  years, notably Jenny, a donkey  or burro from California and  later Don Jose, from  Washington state.  "Jenny was 14 when I got  her," said Cloe, "and she had a  hard time adjusting to her new  life. She had been born and  worked in the dark of a salt  mine for all those years. She  wasn't used to the sunlight, you  see."  "We got a highland bull and  two heifers," said Cloe, "and I  also got a cross-bred highland  and Devon at the same time."  "We thought this sturdy  breed would live on brush, their  , hardiness proof against our wet  winters. And that was quite  right but we soon found  something j not., so suitable in  these cattle.  "Fences meantJ" nothing to  these animals," Cloe continued.  "They went over them like birds  on the wing."  "We sought advice from  Norman Hough who had the  dairy farm then, on Pratt Road.  And he suggested a metal eye-  shield to hang from their horns.  He said, you see, that the cattle .  could easily see the grass to  graze, but could not see the ���  fence when they looked up."  "Well that didn't work. The  metal shield was tossed back  like a kid tossing hair out of his .  eyes, and over the fence they  went."  Cloe said they would find out  when someone telephoned to  say the cattle were in their  gardens. "Usually late in the  evening," said Cloe. Next Norman suggested a hobble by tying  one foreleg to a halter.-No effect. Phone calls came asking if  Cloe owned a longhorned  cattle-beast with three legs.  Then Cloe and her son, Ches,  tried their own idea. They anchored the cows to large concrete blocks. Phone calls came  almost immediately, "Do you  own a three-legged cow with a  metal shield over its eyes, and  dragging a great cement block.  It's in our cabbage patch."  "That's when we filled the  freezer with fresh beef." And  the crossbred? "She was easy to  manage, but when dogs ragged  her calf to death, we just gave  up on cattle," said Cloe.  "I hope this story doesn't  discourage the present owner of  highland cattle. Maybe ours  were just different."  Listening to her donkeys  braying like lost souls in perdition, and in concert with a  neighbouring peacock, stridently challenging the rising sun,  was pleasant music, I would  think, after her trials with the  highland cattle.

Saute gently for seven to ten minutes, then remove bacon, onion and  mushroom and drain.  2 .Toss the chicken pieces in the seasoned flour and fry in the butter  and oil until the chicken has turned golden.  3 . Return bacon, onions and mushrooms to chicken. Add salt, pepper,  garlic, thyme, bay leaves and parsley. Cover casserole and cook in  350��F oven for 45 minutes  or until tender.  4 . Remove all the chicken, etcetera  onto a warm plate and pop back  in oven.  5 .Place dutch oven on high heat. Warm the brandy, and ignite. Let it  burn (fun, eh!) for a couple of minutes, then pour in the red wine.  Add the sugar and boil rapidly until you get half the original amount.  6 . Blend the flour and butter and blend into the wine mixture. Stir until  thickened. ^   "'  7 .Return everything in playback to casserole, simmer 15 minutes.  Serve, garnished, with parsley sprigs.

The film, High  Stakes, will be released to theatres next year. (See story)  ���Brad Benson photo  After a couple of hours, John  Kelly went over to the jail and  bailed his friend out, much (it  may be reasonably conjectured)  .   to the relief of the police.  "They showed up at the cast  party as though nothing had  happened," Burnside recalls,  "the playwright and the man  who had disrupted his play,  drunk as lords and thick as  thieves."  The following day, Fogarty  was levied a stiff fine for his  misdemeanours.  This was not the end of the  matter. The Veterinary Association of B.C. got wind of the incident and Fogarty was summoned to Victoria to appear  before the Ethics Committee.  He arrived at the hearing, neatly  dressed and dead sobefwith^his  Irish eloquence in high gear?"  Fogarty's licence was on the line  and he knew it. He pulled out  all the stops.  "You see, your honours,"  ^Fogarty confided to the board,  ^ "I-have this friend who's a  \writer aiid you kndwswhat terrible drinkers writers are. He was  having   this   play   done   in  Courtenay and I went along to  keep him company. Well, the  man was drinking the whole  time and I drank a little meself  -more than I'm accustomed to.  The liquor went to me head and  I must confess I did behave  rather badly."  Fogarty went on in this vein  at some length, generally making himself out to be the innocent victim of unfortunate circumstances.  When he was finished, the  Chairman of the Ethics Board  fixed the wayward vet with a  quizzical look. "Doctor Fogarty," he inquired, "are you sure  you are telling us the truth?"  "Why your honour,"  declared Fogarty with a expression of disbelief, "I'm not here  to tell the truth, I'm here to defend meself."  The upshot of it all was that  Fogarty survived the inquisition, was given a token reprimand and returned to Powell  River with his licence intact.  Fogarty must have pulled in  his horns a bit after this close  shave. I heard no reports on  him for some time.  In the latter '70's, I began to  experiment with orchestrated  poetry. I was working with two  local musicians, pianist Ken  1 DalgHesh and guitar player,  Mike TJtmn.^ We had put  together a progfam and were  anxious to try it out on a live audience. Soon our chance came. I  picked up a reading at the  Malaspina College Extension in  Powell River. This seemed as  good an opportunity as any to  put our routine to the acid test.  On the appointed day, we headed upcoast.  In addition to Mike, Ken and  myself, our small entourage included my friend, the Scots  writer Angus Mauchlin and his  lady, Florence Perreault. We  had no idea how the thing was  going to go and it was good to  have a couple of friendly  rooters in our corner.  To be continued  Movie shot in Gibsons  by Brad Benson  High Stakes, a five million  dollar film, being shot with an  all Canadian cast and crew and  Peninsula  Motor Inn  Hwy 101, Roberts Creek  presents  nightly entertainment  Appearing  Wed. to Sat., Dec. 18-21  MISTER  SISTERS  Ladies Band  GET YOUR_^   Phone for details  financed with Canadian money,  has recently used locations on  the Sunshine Coast to film the  movie's final sequences.  For four days in November,  over half of the 80 people working on the film were set up at the  Poppel residence in Langdale.  The house was being used to  represent a luxury estate in the  story, owned by the son of a  Nazi war criminal.'' -  The cast and crew were back  again for two days last week at  Shoal Lookout on the Gibsons  Bluff. This location represented  the grounds of the "estate"  where the "son" kept a collection of German World War II  memorabilia.'  Overlooking Salmon. Rock  and Georgia Straight were life-  sized mock-ups of a German  tank, fighter plane, howitzer  and a zeppelin. Crowded onto  the narrow roadway were production trucks, wardrobe and  catering vans, dozens of personal vehicles and a large crane  used to hoist the zeppelin into  the air with invisible wire cables.  Crew members from past  seasons' Danger Bay and The  Beachcombers series were forking on the film, including ^  Frederick in the job of prodf  tion manager. yy       ?g  High Stakes is a story about a  klutzy young man - played by:;V  David Foley, a stand-up comic  from Toronto in his f first film  -who works as a gofer in his uncle's TV station. The uncle is  played by Jackson Davies, who  is well known from his portrayal of Constable Constable  in CBC's The Beachcombers.  The young man aspires to the  career of his idol, the station's  hard hitting investigative  reporter, played by Vancouver's  Jack Webster. The plot of the  comedy/mystery picks up steam  when the reporter is discovered  missing and the young man  stumbles across a clue that leads  him into the biggest story ever  to hit Vancouver.  The female lead is played by  Toronto's Iberia-Weiss^fahd  Vancouver's^Winston Rekert  plays the film's bad guy. Director is Larry Kent.  High Stakes is one of three  -five million dollar films which  have been put together for filming this fall by Canadian producer, Peter Simpson. This film  and one of the others, Bullies,  ��� will be released to theatres next  year. The third production,  Mania, is a four part movie that  will be released on pay TV.

Tuesday, Wednesday and  Sunday, from 2 p.m. until 5  p.m., members of the foundation will have a display and  brochures in the vestibule of the  Harbour Cafe and the Landing  General Store on Gower Point  Road. On Thursday, Friday  and Saturday from 2 p.m. until  7 p.m., the display will be  mounted in Sunnycrest Mall.  In an effort to get a-concrete  indication of community support,   the   foundation   is   re-  erwa  questing a donation of $1 from  every person who would like the  project to succeed. The sum of  these small contributions can be  quoted as concrete evidence of  the strength of community support in the foundation's applications for funding from  various government and private  agencies.  The foundation is also seeking pledges of funds, labour,  materials and equipment for the  project, with a goal of raising  $100,000 on the Sunshine  Coast. As a registered nonprofit society, it can issue tax-  deductible receipts for any contributions made.  Please support this effort to  provide a performing arts  pavilion for the benefit and  pleasure   of   Sunshine); Coast-j  residents and visitors. Drop by  and find out more about the  Eileen Glassford Arts Foundation's proposal, and contribute  your support to this most worthwhile community project.

There you'll find a menu that offers you just the kind of  sustenance you want and at a price you can easily afford.  There's nothing quite as satisfying as leaving the table well-  fed and with a pocketbook that's still intact.  The evening I went to the Pen, as it is affectionately called,  I opted for a deluxe burger -it had been a trying day and cold  too - and my companion who had toiled even more  strenuously than I, chose the cheese burger.  We were both delightfully surprised. Patties thick and meaty, fresh buns, and French fries made with the skins still on,  thick spicy gravy and plenty of it, made our mouths water,  and we attacked them with relish. For the two of us, the bill  was a very modest $6, not including the cold beer to wash it  down.  ��� i  l#  Also on the menu are  mushroom and bacon burgers,  chili and toast, Kaiser buns with  an excellent cold cut and cheese  selection, bacon and tomato  sandwiches, and freshly made  soup of the day, chicken  vegetable and rice at $2 the  bowl.  One of the highlights of the  Pen menu is the 99 cent  breakfast on until 11 each day.  This bargain, and indeed it is,  comprises two eggs, bacon, ham  or sausage and hashbrowns.  Regular breakfast at other times  can be had for less than $3.  For  a  small  but   delicious  menu at 1960's prices, try  the Pen Hotel - you won't be  disappointed.

Coast News, December 16,1985  I  J*  f  f  ���>  $:  I  I  I  In Fraser Valley  Lee DeMarne lands one in Siver Gloves action  Boxers have  mixed results  Two of the three Sunshine  Coast boxers entered in the 1985  B.C. Silver Gloves Boxing  Tournament last weekend in  Vancouver came home champions.  In the 85 pound class, Lee  DeMarni won a split decision  over Queensborough's Rene  Saville.  Mark Jaeger once again  dominated Astoria's Teddy  James to capture the 165 pound  crown.  In the 139 pound class  Queensborough's Troy Taylor  out fought, out thought and  surprised the coast's Tony Duffy with blending pitter patter  combinations. It wasn't until  the third round that the  Duffy finally caught up with the  awkward south paw but not  enough to have the judges alter  their decision.  Although Duffy has easily  out pointed Taylor on two other  occassions the Quensborough  team must be credited for an exceptionally effective fight plan.  Taylor obviously prepared for  the bout far more seriously than  this Sunshine Coaster.  �����  *p*.

Elphinstone had earlier been  eliminated from the championship round after losing to  Smithers, Mount Sentinel from  Slocan, and the host school Holy Cross. However, victories  against St. Patrick from Vancouver and Robron from  Campbell River sent Elphi into  the consolation round.  Victories over Fulton from  the Cariboo and Ballenas from  Parkside put Elphi's girls into  the consolation final against Bible Fellowship.  The match, a best of three affair, took an hour and a half to  play. In the first game Elphi lost  15-12 and rallied to win the second, 15-13. In the final game  Elphi trailed 14-10 but came  back on Sheila Reynold's strong  serving and a crucial game winning block by Shannon Bulmer  to win 16-14. The match  featured strong efforts from the  two hitters, Mara Parnell and  Jennifer Earwaker and excellent  team play.  Mara Parnell was selected to  the second all star team.  Elphi's record of five matches  won to four lost gave the team  seventh place out of twelve  teams from across the province.  Over the past 10 years teams  from Elphinstone have featured  prominently in girls' Single A  volleyball.  During that period they have  finished first twice, second  twice, third once, fourth twice  and seventh once. Only twice  have they failed to qualify for  the Provincials.  In this tournament College  Heights from Prince George  upset D.P. Todd, also of Prince  George, to win the gold medal  and Golden upset Smithers for  the bronze.

It appears at this time that all  the teams will finish their seven  games before Christmas.  At this date two teams are  tied for the lead. The team of  Stan Patterson and Joe Mellis  have completed their seven  games and have chalked up a  total of nine points.  And the team of Boris Meda  and Howie Larsen also have  nine points but they have one  more game to play.  Whatever team wins the first  half they should prepare to face  the "A and B" team (Alec and  Bill) in the final playoff because  we intend to win the second  half!  The clubhouse will be closed  during the holidays the following dates. December 24, 25 and  26 for Christmas and December  31 and January 1 for New  Years.  Another reminder of a most  important club date; the annual  general meeting and election of  officers and directors will take  place on Thursday, January 23  at 7:30 p.m. Back up your  board of directors and overflow  the lounge.  As this will be the last golf  column until the New Year I  would like to wish everyone a  very Merry Christmas and a  Happy and Prosperous Good  Golfing 1986.

Is it because it is too expensive, or too time consuming, or  possibly too rough? There are  many parents who discourage  ~ their boys from ever getting  started in hockey, despite it being our national sport.

That investment is creating jobs now. Already more than 6,000 working  days in the Vancouver Forest Region have resulted in 2,500 hectares  surveyed; seedlings planted on 1,000 hectares; 300 hectares prepared for  planting; and weeding of nearly 1,000 hectares.  Throughout British Columbia, the federal-provincial forestry agreement  means jobs now, and a healthy productive future for a real growth industry.  �� Hon. Tom Waterland  Minister of Forests  I*  Hon. Gerald Merrithew,  Minister of State, (Forestry) ������MBliniumi  Coast News, December 16,1985  Sunshine Coast school children are becoming more and more aware of the peace issue and this week  many colourful and telling posters were on display in (he Sunnycrest Mall with the theme of Peace on  Earth for all. ���Dianne Evans photo  Bush Blether  A limit's a limit  by Jamie Stephen  Conservation Officer  Last week I wrote that failing  to 'record, punch or mark' a  license IMMEDIATELY after  killing a chinook, steelhead or  big game animal was perhaps  the most common fishing or  hunting offence. But a close second is a violation which has a  fair bit to do with parties - of  the hunting or fishing kind! To  illustrate, let me explain what a  family picking oysters has in  common with a bunch of guys  on a hunting trip.  We start with mum and dad  and newborn Googles on the  beach at low tide; Googles'  gourmet folks know a person's  daily bag limit is 15 oysters (or  500 ml if the oysters are shucked), so while Googles grins from  his cuddle seat, mum and dad  deftly drop 45 of these seashore  treats into a gunny sack.  Although Googles could not  possibly pick a single oyster - at  least not without letting his  soother drop, his parents felt  justified in transferring their  child's 'right' to 15 oysters, to  themselves. Tsk, tsk.  While this is going, on,  around the corner in Quarry  Bay, the winter springs are still  hitting. So well in fact, that in  one tin boat, a particularly skilled fisherman has already got his  limit, and wouldn't you know it  - a wave of benevolence comes  over him. He notices the fellows  in the next boat aren't doing too  well, so just before they head in,  he hollers, "Say fellas, you  wanta coupla fish-.Tm doing  pretty well anyway?"  But he doesn't bother to  mark his catch card for the fish  he gave away, rationalizing that  he is just transferring the 'right'  of the other fisherman to four  springs a day, to himself as self-  appointed benefactor of all  unlucky anglers. In the meantime, he continues to fish...for  the big ones!  And by golly, just by coincidence, around the next bay,  and inland a bit, there's a party  of deer hunters in hot pursuit on  a fresh trail. 'Cept for one, an  he's only hot 'cause he bust his  leg t'other day an screwed up  his deer hunt good! So 'broken  leg' minds the boat, confident  that one of his buddies will get  his deer for him - after all, he's  got a deer tag and hence the  'right' to one fat ol'blacktail.  Folks,   by   now   red   lights  should be flashing, stop flags  waving and alarm bells ringing  in most of your minds. It's a  mistaken perception that when  you  plunk  down  your  eight  dollars for a deer license, you're  buying entitlement to a deer.  YOu're   not.    All   you're  guaranteed is the right to test  your skill in hunting and killing  a deer, subject to conditions  which   dictate   the  area   and  season in which you may make  your attempt, and the type of  equipment permitted - as well as  the age and sex of the animal.  There  is  no  unconditional  'right' implied or expressed that  your skill will be up to the  challenge - and it has to be your  skill. Not your buddies'. Your  authority to pick 15 oysters is  yours   alone;   similarly,   your  authority   to   try   and   catch  chinook salmon is simply not  transferable; ditto for big game  - 'party hunting' -' the practice  in some jurisdictions, of sharing  licenses amongst a hunting party, thereby permitting any one  individual in the party to shoot  a number of game animals up to  the   maximum   number   of  licenses held in total by that par  ty - is simply against the law in  B.C.  In fact many of our bag and  season limits - setting the ceiling  on maximum harvest levels - are  based on known success ratios  from previous years' experience.  We know that only a certain  percentage of those who buy  licenses will actually catch a  steelhead or shoot a mountain  goat. But all our management  efforts will soon go awry if  everyone, through the skill and  knowledge of an excellent  fisherman or hunter friend, fills  all of our bag limits for us.  "...an if y'don't like them  oysters, why...there's a soother  on the beach!!"  Bursary Society meets  Early December saw the annual meeting of the Sunshine  Coast Bursary and Loan Society  which administers funds provid:  ed by commnity organizations  and individuals which are used  to assist post-secondary  students from our high schools  to seek further education.  1985 saw $14,846 provided  for awards to students entering  or continuing with post-  secondary education and a further $2000 was provided as  loans. Previous loans of $935  were repaid.  Elections saw Pearl McKenzie as President; Bill Cross as  Vice-President; Bill Forst as  Secretary and Bea Rankin continues as Treasurer. Directors  include   Charlotte   Jackson,  Lenore Inglis, George Cooper,  Gladys Ritchie, Ken Northrup,  Grace Bonin, Hannah Ratzburg  and Moira Richter.  Most of these directors represent donors and the suggestion  was made that membeship  should include family members  of those students who have  benefited from the efforts of the  society.  The nominal membership of  $1 annually for individuals and  $2 for organizations helps  defray administrative expense  and attendance at only one  meeting per year is required.  The input of the community  would be valuable and much  appreciated. Contact can be  made through high school offices or any of the above directors.  Recycling told  to clean up  Peninsula Recycling was called a deplorable mess by the  Gibsons planner last week and  council, which has received two  letters of complaint about -the  depot, agreed.  A letter has been sent to the  owner requesting that he clean  up the property, which is on  Venture Way beside the Department of Highways building.  Under the Unsightly Premises  By-law, if the owner fails to  comply after 30 days, a work  crew from the town can be sent  in lo do the job at his expense.  Owner Bob Christopher says  council is "absolutely correct."  processed through Peninsula.  "But we started cleaning up  about three weeks ago and  we're damned near finished. It's  cleaning up quite nicely," he  said.  Tutors needed  The Adult Basic Literacy  Education (ABLE) program  assists adults with basic reading  and writing skills. We provide  students with trained volunteer  tutors who will work on a one-  to-one basis.  Since a good student-tutor  relationship is essential in  creating a successful learning  situation, we need a variety of  tutors. At present, we have a  real shortage of men tutoring  with the program. Since some  male students indicate a definite  preference for a male tutor, we  hope to change this situation.  ABLE will offer a tutor training workshop in the near future.  After training, tutors are asked  to make a commitment to work  with a student once a week for a  minimum of six months.  If you are a man interested in  a rewarding volunteer experience, please contact ABLE  soon!

The dinner served by legion  members, was conducted according to Mess Dinner procedures  of the Seaforth Highlanders of  Canada.  The head table was piped in  by Pipe Sergeant John Webb  and consisted of Mayor Joyce  Kolibas of Sechelt, Doreen  Pehichyn president of Branch  140, the Cadet Corps sponsor,  Captain Bob Sommerfield CD  Commanding Officer, Captain  Ron Biggs CD Cadet Liaison  Officer, Lieutenant Peter  Thomas Seaforth Highlanders  of Canada representative, Mrs.  Gladys Ritchie of Branch 140  Ladies Auxiliary, Captain Dane  Lowe Commanding Officer  2812 White Rock Seaforth  Cadets,   Major  Bob  Keene a  former Seaforth officer of  Madeira Park Legion Branch  112, Stan Johnson representing  the Sechelt Indian Band and a  World War II vet, and Cadet  Sergeant Major Sergio Tomasi.  This was Sergeant Major  Tomasi's final dinner as he  leaves to join the Royal Canadian Regiment as a parachutist  in January. He is the only cadet  from the Sunshine Coast who  has qualified for paratroop  wings. He was presented with a  wrist watch by the Commanding Officer at this time.  The President of Mess Committee (PMC) was Cadet  Sergeant Theresa Campbell who  did an excellent job of controlling the dinner.  Cadet Kirkman proposed the  toast to the Queen after which  Pipe Sergeant John Webb piped  a few tunes followed by Piper  Gordon Ross who proposed the  Seaforth Regimental Toast in  Gaelic and then in English.  The Toast to the Regiment  was proposed by Cadet  Sergeant Jim Wishbone and  replied to by Lieutenant  Thomas.  Captain Ron Biggs CD,  Cadet Liason Officer, presented  the corps with a photo album of  photos taken of their first  parade as Seaforth Cadets during the Change in Affiliation  Parade held in Sechelt,  December 7.  Mayor Joyce Kolibas spoke  to the cadets complimenting  them on their behaviour and  discipline and telling them they  were a. credit to the Seaforth  Highlanders. It was a perfect  touch to an excellent evening.  The dinner was a success and  all cadets are looking forward  to more mess dinners in the  future.

In Zoom  Away the intrepid cat is off to  the arctic seas to locate his missing Uncle Roy. After a difficult  journey with his friend Maria he  discovers Uncle Roy's ship - appropriately named the Catship  -locked into the ice, but Uncle  Roy and his crew are safe, and  Zoom begins planning a return  trip to rescue the ship when the  ice melts.

Sharon, Lois and Bram have  turned out a book of Mother  Goose nursery rhymes and  songs complete with music with  easy-to-play arrangements for  piano and guitar.

Jan Andrew's Very Last First  Time is going to be a bit of a  problem for parents, if not for  their children. It tells the story  of an Inuit girl who goes mussel  collecting alone for the first  time - by walking on the bottom  of the sea. Ian Wallace's  beautiful icy pictures help to explain much about this centuries-  old practice that the story does  not explain, but parents should  be prepared for a barrage of  questions if they give this one  for a Christmas present. An  educational gift if there ever was  one -for parents too.  We weren't too excited by  Betty Waterton's The Dog Who  Stopped the War, a novelized  version of the movie by the  same name. Some of our halfhearted response is the fault of  the pictures - a collection of  stills from the movie, but we  ���. y^afa^found the story itself unsatisfac  tory: the death and burial of the  beloved dog who *'stops the  war" are glossed over in the last  three pages and the kids go marching on.

The Community Club sponsored an essay contest on the  topic "What would you show a  visitor to Pender Harbour?"  with a cash, prize of $20 for the  best submission in each grade.  The essays were graded by the  English teachers, who had a difficult time chooseing the best.  Paula Wellings in Grade 9  looked back to 1891, when the  first tourist excursions sailed  from Vancouver to Pender Harbour for only $1.50. She  presented the Harbour as "A  place to escape to".  Darren Vickers won for  Grade 10, covering the many  maritime attractions: Princess  Louisa, Skookumchuck Rapids  and the outlying islands of  Nelson and Thornby.  In Grade 11, Vicki Wilkinson  also focussed on the lakes and  salt water activities available  here.  Chris Garbers, the Grade 8  winner, highlighted a single spot  - Brightside Resort, with its  campground, warm lake waters  and abundant animal life. He-  outlined the years of hard work  by the Falconbridge family,  who created the resort from a  wilderness.  Grade 12's top essay came  from Karen Meyer, who wrote  of the bountiful harvest from  the waiers of Pender Harbour.  She ended with a lyrical description of a Harbour sunset:  "On a summer day, Pender  Harbour's expanses of ocean  mesmerize the viewer with its  simplistic beauty and power.  This is only paralleled by the  magnificent sunset on the  horizon. Like a fiery ball, the  sun's rays extend and are  reflected by the water to herald  the end of the day. Pender Harbour is truly an exciting vacation spot for those who admire  the beauty of nature."  The future of Pender HarT  bour lies in tourism. These  young writers have presented a  vivid picture of the natural  beauty and variety which will  continue to draw visitors from  all over the world.

DEVLIN  1665 Seaview  Gibsons  Director  Notice of  PUBLIC  HEARING  PROPOSED AMENDMENTS  TO TOWN OF GIBSONS  ZONING BY-LAW NO. 500, 1984  Pursuant to Section 720 of the Municipal Act, a  PUBLIC HEARING will be held in the Municipal  Hall, 1490 South Fletcher Road, Gibsons, B.C. on  THURSDAY DECEMBER 19, 1985 at 7:30 p.m. to  consider By-law No. 500-6 (Zoning Amendment  By-law No. 500-6,1985) and By-law No. 500-8 (Zoning Amendment By-law No. 500-8, 1985). At the  hearing all persons who deem their interest in property affected by the proposed by-law shall be afforded an opportunity to be heard on matters contained in the by-law.  The intent of the by-laws is to amend the present zoning as described below:  1 .That certain parcel or parcels of land in the  Town of Gibsons more particularly known and  legally described as Lot 49 and Lot 50, Blocks  1-4, DL 689, Plan 18134 be rezoned from Light  Industrial Zone 1 (1-1) to Automobile Commercial Zone 3 (C.3).  2 .This by-law may be cited for all purposes as  "Zoning Amendment By-law No. 500-6, 1985".  3 .That an amendment be made to Zoning By-law  No. 500, 1984 in Part 4 of the General Regulations, Sectiom No. 417.  4 .This by-law may be cited for all purposes as  "Zoning Amendment By-law No. 500-8, 1985".  Take notice that the above paragraph is deemed to be a synopsis of the by-law and not deemed  to be an interpretation thereof. A copy of the  amending by-law is available for inspection at the  Gibsons Municipal Office, 1490 South Fletcher  Road, during office hours, namely Monday to  Wednesday 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and Thursday  and Friday 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.  Rob Buchan  MUNICIPAL PLANNER & APPROVING OFFICER  Indian freedom  again  In a meeting with the  Honourable David Crombie on  Sunday, December 8, it became  apparent that the minister will  likely be unable to honour his  commitment to introduce self  government legislation before  the Christmas recess, said  Sechelt Indian Band Chief Stan  Dixon last week.  Although all issues of  substance were agreed upon at a  meeting with justice lawyers,  provincial lawyers and band  representatives on October 25,  the federal justice department  did not complete drafting  legislation until December leaving insufficient time to obtain  necessary cabinet committee approvals.  However, legislative  facilitator, Audrey Doerr has  told Dixon that legislation will  definitely be forthcoming in  January.  Dixon said that in his opinion, the minister's staff whose  job it is to assure the commitments of the minister are  met, has simply not done the  job.  "This, along with the justice  lawyers' incompetence and  meddling in policy matters  rather than legal issues has  made the minister's public com  mitment unachievable," Dixon  told the Coast New.  "Crombie has tried his best,"  Dixon continued, "but I believe  that he has been kept uninformed of what is actually happenn-  ing.  The frustration that Dixon is  feeling is shared by his Councillors, he added.  "Today Warren Paull put it  in a nutshell when he said that  in a just cause there are no  defeats, only bureaucratic  delays." Dixon said. "And Ben  Pierre is feeling very low now  that we won't be getting the  Christmas present they promised us. But, like all the rest of us,  he believes that we have to get  on with our lives despite this setback, and we have to keep our  hopes up.  "After all, we've been  waiting a hundred years for  this, like I've said before, and  another month won't hurt.  "We want to get away from  the Indian Act as soon as possible, and the quicker we do it the  better we'll like it," Dixon continued.  "We want to get on with our  lives so that we can be a  resource and not a liability.  How can this basic justice be  denied us?"  SCTA elections  The Sunshine Coast Tourism  Association (SCTA) held its  first annual general meeting last  Friday, December 13 to elect a  slate of 10 directors for the  coming year, to present reports  from various committees as well  as its first financial statement.  The directors, nominated by  the nominating committee  headed by John Glover, were  elected by acclamation.  They are Richard Tomkies  from Middle Point, Art McGinnis from Sechelt, Vince  Bracewell from Davis Bay,  Brendan O'Keeffe from  Sechelt, Ed Traff from Davis  Bay, Jim Haye from Sechelt,  Jim Malloy from Sechelt, Peter  Benjafield from Pender Harbour, Ruth King from Halfmoon Bay and Cindy Buis from  Gibsons.  Appreciation felt  Editor:  We wish to bring to our community's attention the generous  help and support that Jim and  Loraine Rollerson of Henry's  Bakery have given to Jack and  Jill Playschool. Each child was  provided with enough gingerbread and decorations to create  their own magical houses.  Henry's Bakery has also  made a beautiful gingerbread  village to be raffled by the  playschool. We would like to  give our sincere appreciation for  their support of our community  playschool.  \ '-Jt is through the generous  help of local businesses and individuals such as Jim and  Loraine that allow our  playschool to continue to provide such an excellent educational start for our children.  Merry   Christmas  Jim  and  Loraine.  Jack & Jill Playschool  Pupils and Parents  Help handicapped  Editor:  The Sunshine Association for  the Handicapped has been appointed agent in this area to  handle purchase of tickets to  Expo 86 by disabled persons.  Prices for the disabled are attractive; until January 6, 1986 a  three day ticket costs $13.45, a  season ticket $44.50, and a one  day ticket $18. An added  feature is that disabled persons  who require an attendant can be  provided with free tickets for  the attendant, paralleling  whatever category of tickets  they purchase. For instance, a  person who must use a wheel  chair would certainly qualify,  and whoever looks after him  gets in FREE.  Our association does not  receive any reimbursement for  this, it's just part of our service  to the community.  For more information call the  writer at 886-2935.  Jack White  Unitarian fund  Editor:  For forty years promises have  been made and kept. Each year  since Dr. Lotta Hitschmanova,  C.C., founded the Unitarian  Service Committee (USC),  Canadians have used the agency  as a channel to reach people  who cannot break through the  crippling pattern of poverty  without help. This year the USC  still needs $3 million to keep its  promises and meet urgent requests for help to get clean  water and tools and seeds to  grow  food,  in countries like  Bangladesh,      Botswana,  Lesotho.  Your donations are matched  by the Canadian International  Development Agency (CIDA),  the Provincial Governments of  British Columbia, Alberta,  Saskatchewan, and Manitoba,  and can be sent direct to USC  Canada, at 56 Sparks, Ottawa  KIP 5B1, or through any  branch of the Bank of Montreal.  We need your help.

The complex has been in the  draft stages for over a year and  council asked Ryan for reasons  to grant the extension.  Ryan said the project was inactive until two and a half months ago when, due to requests  and interest in the community,  it was reactivated.  He said the proposal still  hinges on determining the needs  of seniors in the area, assessing  health-care programs and concerns and finding a financial  sponsor .i  There is a potential investor  now, he said, who is looking at  the complex on the basis of individual ownership.  Unlike Shorncliffe, which  provides intermediate care  housing, this one, said Ryan,  would consist of independent  housinu.  "It would be the first of its  kind in B.C., although there are  thousands in North America,"  he said.

Langdale School  comes back  from troubles  The school board education  meeting was held Tuesday,  December 10 at Langdale Elementary, and principal George  Allan took the opportunity to  assure the board and members  of the audience that "it's  business as usual" at the school  after a difficult and trying  period at the end of the last  school year.  "There's still a lingering  question, 'what's it like here?' "  Allan said, adding that the staff  feels as though they are back on  track and moving ahead.  "We have decided to place  our emphasis on learning. We  are working with the 'effective  school program' and we've  already done a great deal in that  direction," he continued.  A gifted student program will  begin in January under the  direction of Jrran. Jpvick and  Allan is confident that the majority of the needs of the  students will be met.  "Everyone has different learning styles," Allan explained.  "People learn and teach in different ways. What we are trying  to develop is a program of in-  Idependent self-directed studies,,  ���a higher level of thinking skills!  for our students that will help  ihem to judge critically and to  solve problems.  "We are focussing on the  long term: ihe child in kindergarten now. we are trying to  see as a tirade 12 student," lie  added. "We want lo help the  children lead happy and fulfilled lives."  Allan said that during a  period of shock and adjustment  following the disclosure last  April of allegations of sexual  abuse against Langdale children  by a former teacher at the  school, many people within the  district had offered great support and help, mentioning Drew  McKee and Mary Belle Bulmer  in particular.  "Those people were there  when they were needed," Allan  said. "They helped the school  staff deal with the problem  which none of us had had experience with before. Drew is  working with the children and  their parents to help them get  over the problems. I have  nothing but respect for him and  Mary Belle."  As well, the entire staff of the  ease go  Gibsons Council decided in  committee last week not to  renew its lease for administrative control of the  government wharf.  Under the current agreement,  which has. been in effect for  about 20 years, the town  manages the wharf according to  the rules and" regulations of  Federal Fisheries and Oceans.  Town administrators pay the  wharfinger's salary and collect  revenues from the floats.  Fisheries and Oceans will take  over the job starting December  31.  "Everything will go on as  usual," Mayor Diane Strom  said.  Aldermen seemed relieved to  let it go.  "It's our highest area of  liability," Alderman Gerry Dixon said.  "It's an awful lot of administration and worry,"  Alderman Bob Maxwell said.  MR.

When Gibsons Council look-i  ed last week at the rezoning application, town planner Rob  Buchan reported that the proposal conforms with the Official Community Plan.  The visual impact of the  building, he said, is difficult to  assess without elevational drawings, which however should be  available at an eventual public  hearing.  A widening of Highway 101  and School Road at the apex of  the triangular-shaped lot would  have to be obtained prior to any  rezoning, Buchan said.  Walter Kern told the Coast.  News that if everything goes according to plans, construction  could begin in June or July and  be finished by November.  Coast News, December 16,1985  'TIS the SEASON to be.

Allan also praised the work  of the maintenance department  who had responded to a leaking  oil tank in record time.  "We found the leak, and  within 12 hours the  maintenance crew had moved  all the shrubs in the field, dug  up the tank, moved the soil,  repaired the tank and put it all  back together again," Allan,  said. "This meant we had heat  in the school again."  Sharon Venachuck of the  parents' group also gave a  report to the board as did Ms  Anne Chow, the kindergarten  teacher who also coordinates  the computer program in the  school.
