By the. end-jsO^ January,, 18 v  ���yyydat:- old ;Se^b^?Tomasi will ���"  have left the Coast for a career  in the Canadian Armed Forces;  on January 22 he leaves to commence basic training.  Tomasi has been in the 2963  Sunshine Coast Army Cadet  fcorps for seven years and this  past summer became the first,  and to date only, cadet on the  Coast to gain his Parachutist  wings.  The parachutist course,  which is six weeks long, is one  of the few offered by the Canadian Armed Forces which is  ��� available to cadets. In order to  qualify Tomasi had to complete  a nation-wide Level Four test;  he came in sixth out of more  than 50 participants.  Training began in Valcartier,  Quebec, with intense physical  training, including 300-400  push-ups daily as well as 10-12  miles of running each day. After completion of this initial  course, Tomasi went to the  Canadian Airborne Centre at  CFB, Edmonton.  Instructors for the course are  from the Regular Force, Airborne Regiment. This part of  the course covers aircraft drill,  equipment rigging, entering and  exiting the aircraft, flight pro-  qedure and landings. Physical  training includes five mile runs  on a daily basis.  The next stage of training is  the jump stage. Tomasi had to  complete five jumps, including  one night jump; his sixth and  final jump was from 2,000 feet.  Of the 60 people who attended the course, only 37 graduated  of which Tomasi was one. He  considers himself very fortunate  to have been able to get the  training he did.  "This is the best parachutist  training in the world," he explained in a conversation with  the Coast News. "Since the new  parachutes have been used there  have been no accidents. In fact,  the last fatality was in 1953, I  believe. The. courses are small  and there are plenty of instructors to give one to one  training."  ; 'it was his years in the Cadet  Corps that developed Tomasi's  interest in an army career.  "It's challenging and diversified," he said. "You're always  doing different things and as  well, there are lots of educational opportunities.  "The infantry is the most  diversified and you can get to  use your initiative and leader  ship^ skills,/ l;Tomasi:cpntinj^ed.  ��� ^-The 'C^adian:"^mec( ;EprcesV  are not interventionist but are a  peacekeeping force and the emphasis is more on that role than  on being involved in conflicts."  The training received by local  cadets also emphasises community service and developing  skills such as search and rescue.  A group of the Cadet Corps  were participants in the recent  , jsearcjh jipp younj^enj0�� May,  commng^dense^puSMand -in the  region of Brookman Park.'  Tomasi spoke highly of his  Commanding Officer, Captain  Bob Sommerfield.  "He has trained us, not as  Rambos, but to respect people  and to treat them accordingly,"  Tomasi said. "Being in the  Cadet Corps gives us something  we never had before."  Immunization  clinics  Special Measles Immunization clinics are being held by  Coast-Garibaldi Health Unit for unimmunized individuals  from ages one to 19 inclusive.  The Gibsons Measles Immunization clinic is from 3 to 4:30  p.m. on Wednesday, January 8 at the Health Unit, 1538  South Fletcher Road, Gibsons.  The Sechelt Measles Immunization clinic is from 3 to 4:30  p.m. on Friday, January 10 at the Mental Health Centre, corner of Inlet and Teredo, Sechelt.  Please phone 886-8131 for an appointment.  Madeira Park clinic will be held Tuesday, January 14, 1:15  to 3:30 p.m. at the Pender Harbour Health Centre. Phone  883-2764 for an appointment.  Consent of a parent/guardian is necessary. Parents may  either accompany their child to the clinic, or sign their consent at the Health Unit prior to the clinic.  All-candidates  The Sunshine Coast Teachers' Association and the Gibsons  Elementary Parents' Auxiliary are co-sponsoring an all-  candidates meeting at the Gibsons Elementary School on  Wednesday, January 8 at 7:30 p.m. in the library.  There are three candiates running for the position of Gibsons School Trustee in the election which will be held on  Saturday, January 11.  Suit filed  A writ of summons and a statement of claim was filed in  the B.C. Supreme Court, Vancouver Registry, on December  12 by plaintiff John Bumside, suing Proctor Publications  Ltd.; Richard Proctor, publisher; Mark Rogers, editor;  Charles Lee, a.k.a. Carlo di Messina; and Joseph Sparacino.  The suit alleges defamation of character in respect to letters  published in The Press prior to and immediately after the recent Gibsons municipal election.  Peace meeting  The Sunshine Coast Peace Committee will hold its monthly  meeting on January 13 at Roberts Creek .Elementary School,  7:30 p.m.  A doctor from Physicians for Social Responsibility will be  the guest speaker.  The group will also discuss the Nanoose Bay Agreement  and will be arranging for people to attend the public hearings  there on January 19 and 20.  Board  GUY CHARLES  Guy Charles is contesting the  Gibsons seat in the upcoming  School Board elections because  he has seen deficiencies in the  system as it exists, and would  like to do something to help  make things better. ,  "The children we are educating how are going to be running the country in the next 10  to 30 years," he said, "and the  quality of their education is the  bottom line."  The direction being taken by  the present provincial premier  towards high technology in industry means that the education  system will have to be improv  ed, Charles said.  Programs in high tech fields  such as transportation, communications, computer science,  even aquaculture and agriculture, will have to be developed, according to Charles,  who would also like to see gifted  children or those with learning  disabilities receive more attention.  Fine Arts programs should  also be developed, especially in  the direction of the media, and  the issues of peace should be a  part of the school curriculum,  Charles believes;  A return to local autonomy is  something Charles feels is imperative.  "We must at least have autonomy over our budget," he  said. "If the roof is leaking in  Roberts Creek or Cedar Grove  we must be able to shuffle what  money there is around. If we  shuffle money under the existing fiscal framework we can  lose in the following year.  "I also firmly believe in an  open door policy," Charles  continued. "This is not a  defence department, it's the  school board, for goodness*  sake. We must have more openness."  The question of abuse in the  schools is of concern to Charles  who wants to see the present  situation brought to a satisfac  tory conclusion. He believes  that an independent board pf  inquiry should -sit once again t<?  investigate the train of alleged  events wit^hm the district.      >,,_  "The board has to take actionon this,*' he said. "In fact,  there seems to be far too much  talk and too little action sometimes.''; ���':'��� ���' :[\_  Charles points to problems  within the district that are, to  him, outrageous. For example,  the Grades 1 and 2 at Roberts  Creek Elementary raised money  all through the year by selling  muffinsarid thelike in order to  buy a carpet for their classroom  which is slightly apart from the  rest of the school and considerably colder.  "Raising money for field  trips is one thing, but this is like  expecting your six" year old to  earn money to pay for his own  furniture or food," he said.  Charles, who lives in Roberts  Creek and works for B.C. Ferries, is married with one son and  a step-daughter. He is 38 years  old and has lived on the Sunshine Coast for 10 years.  He is optimistic about the  future of the school board.  "This district's school board  has proven itself in the past and  can again if given back its  autonomy and the right individuals as trustees,". Charles  concluded.  #*!*���!  JANICE EDMONDS  Incumbent Janice Edmonds  is again contesting a seat on the  school board as representative  for the Town of Gibsons.  In conversation with the  Coast News Edmonds spoke of  her aspirations and goals for the  next two years.  "My goals are to help each  individual within the school  system reach their fullest potential, to focus on the individual  and their skills, to help the  students to be as well-rounded  as possible, to have better self-  esteem and sense of self  worth," Edmonds said.  "I would really like us to  have more of the children's  work available for the public to  see, as has been happenning in  the Mall (Sunnycrest) lately,''  she continued.  albums and" scrap bwks with  poetry, short stories, art work  by the children in places like  doctors' waiting rooms so that  people can see what is being  done in the schools - and change  the work regularly," Edmonds  said.  "The emphasis has to be  more on the positive, we have to  start building, and we can do  nothing but improve if we do  so."  Funding is a continuing problem, but Edmonds is hopeful  that a statement made by  Minister of Education, Jack  Heihrich during the Christmas  break, that school boards would  soon have taxing authority will  result in the board obtaining  more local autonomy, a situation Edmonds sees as a positive  move.  "We are the ones elected to  represent the people, and control should be as close to home  as possible. That way we are  more responsible and accountable," Edmonds explained.  "It is important too to let the  people know we are available,  and where and when we can be  , contacted," she continued.  On the question of a board of  inquiry into last year's allegations of sexual abuse by school  ��� w>rf, ^district _, personnel, Edmonds  t'(",;^said' fhatT she is very"HKiScR'Th lJ  favour of the review board,  suspended late last year, resuming its inquiry, as soon as the  matter has been processed  through the judicial system.  Although.the decision to do  so will be made by the board as  a whole, Edmonds said she feels,  it is important that all the lingering questions the public may  have, be answered.  Serving on the Provincial  Education Committee has been  a rewarding experience for Edmonds top. She has been sitting  on the South Coast-Branch as  School District 46 representative  on the three-board committee.  "It has been very helpful  talking to other. board members, to learn their problems  and their solutions too," she explained. "You can't re-invent  the wheel, but you can see how  other people tackle problems we  have in common.  "All we can do is try to go  forward," she added.  Edmonds is married with twp^  children both attending Elphinstone Secondary School.  BENOIT LE PAGE  Benoit LePage is hoping for a  seat on the school board as Gibsons' representative. The following is an exerpt from a brief  presented to the Coast News for  publication.  "Ever since the first cave man  clobbered a mammoth with a  club instead of trying to strangle  it with his hands, man has been  using a scientific approach to  better his human condition - to  remove himself from a position  of utter ignorance, fear, and im-  potency, to one of tolerable  civilization.  "Throughout the centuries  there were men who took first  steps down new roads armed  with nothing but their own visions. Their goals towards indentions, discoveries and new  ways of thinking were their purpose in life. The great creators  of long ago stood alone on the  unexplored frontier.  "The great creators kept on  fighting for what they believed  in, despite society's rejection,  suffering with every breath,  paying with their hearts and  souls.  "The history of the human  race proves that every great achievement comes from some  source of independent way of  thinking, including the very  horror of destruction of human  life.  "If scientific approach challenges the validity of education,  then we must challenge the  validity of scientific approach.  "In 1873 Benjamin Disraeli  told Parliament that "a university should be a place of light,  of' liberty and of learning."  Upon that premise, England,  Canada and most of the Commonwealth countries supported  their universities with large  private endowments, vast sums  of public money, an unprecedented measure of goodwill and  a higher degree of independence  and liberty than had ever been  accorded   an   institution   that  depended upon others for its ex-'  istence.  "But in the past decade we  find that the natural knowledge  is being set aside for only the  few selected classes of people,  the elite of the elite. With large  budget cuts the average person  is losing the right to gain  knowledge, the right to an  education.  "The great loss is not suffered by the taxpayers whose :  money is being wasted on other ���  Socred projects like Expo 86. -  The real losers are the students  who, under the guise of receiving an education, are led to  believe that a frenzied kind of'  activism is a suitable substitute  for learning.  "Great neglect has undermin-'  ed the reputation of the education system in this province. By  providing little or no funding  for educational budgets the top ;  grade teachers and professors  move elsewhere to teach, while  we the people of this province  get the rejects._  "No matter-the outcome of  this election to select a school '  trustee for the Town of Gib- '  sons,   everyone   will   be   the  poorer in the result." lfra-iiy,"Yr.~Tr'Tipr  W&*  ygnwM ngnww*  irvtrjrri-wi ��m  i ��� i    hii   i ���  Coast News, January 6,1986  8  Wrong pockets  The people of British Columbia are right to be confused  about the Socred's way of doing business. A visitor from  afar could easily be forgiven the assumption that most of  those who live in this province are either entrepreneurs or  doing very nicely, thank you.  That would have to be the conclusion were that visitor  to examine legislation enacted in Victoria.  Let's take a look at Bill 73 - that's the Equity Investment  Plan Act and it took effect on January 1,1986. What it offers is $100 million to the people of B.C. to invest in the  stockmarket.  Of course, there are stipulations - each person gets  $2500 or 25 per cent of the total value of the shares purchased, whichever is the lesser. And there may be restrictions imposed on the companies selling the shares which  will prevent that money being spent outside the province.  This is from the same government that is now making  loud and theatening noises about cutting down on welfare  fraud, the same government that is keeping thousands of  its people in poverty, the same government that has cut  back spending on social programs so much so that the  road back to even a basic, decent living for all, seems insurmountable.  It's comforting to know there's all that money out there  to throw around - it's unfortunate that so little of it is going into the pockets of those who are in need.  No inquiry  On January 18 in Nanaimo a public inquiry opens into  the renewal of a Canada-United States agreement for  underwater weapons testing at Nanoose Bay. The present  agreement expires in April.  Unfortunately the inquiry is to be held at the expense,  not of the federal government, but with the assistance of a  grant from the Canadian Institute for International Peace  and Security.  The^overnment has seen fit to ignore numerous petitions from its citizens, and a private member's motion  made by Jim Manley (NDP-Cowichan-Malahat-The  Islands) which calls for a full public inquiry into the present agreement which allows joint use of the Nanoose Bay  weapons range some 100 kilometres north of Victoria.  That's just across the Strait from the Sunshine Coast.  Is this to be yet another high-handed move by the  government? Is this the way the voice of the people is  heard in Ottawa?  It is little wonder that apathy abounds when no amount  of political or private action seems to make one iota of a  difference.  5 YEARS AGO  the provincial government has indicated further sup-  .-.,,. pori;;.f.or.>the.-j^ui\shinie'.CQa8t.<Begional; District in its attempttoestablish standards and guidelines to ^^g^^  the granting of foreshore leases and licences of occupation.

There  were several dignitaries present that day, including Colonel George  Pawlin from Seattle, president of Puget Sound Navigation, Captain Alec Peabody, president of the Canadian arm of the company,  and Mrs. Don Clarke, a former Miss Langdale for whose family  the site of the ferry terminal was named. The Smok\ya carried  about 150 cars and it took about an hour and five minutes to make  the trip. It was a steam-powered boat and had been towed from the  east coast of Canada, through the Panama Canal. Fares in those  days were pne dollar each way for a passenger and three dollars  each way for a car. ���photo courtesy Reg Godfrey  A rebutta  Well, well, well, the ever-  harmonious Mr. Kurt. Hoehne  is appalled. (See letters to the  editor, Page Three)  Mr. Hoehne is appalled by  last week's column which dealt  with the fact that Gibsons had  lost its opportunity to maximize  the benefits which could have  accrued to the Partners in  Enterprise program. That is a  fact, Mr. Hoehne, and justifiable occasion for criticism.  I think it might be agreed,  Mr. Hoehne, that I am no  stranger to vicious and unwarranted'attacks and the column  in question was not one of  those. Be assured, Mr. Hoehne,  that I will continue to address  myself to/political issues as opposed to personalities.  When the council starts to try  to make a name for itself by  cutting costs, Mr. Hoehne, I get  alarmed, remembering, what has  happened in the past. The  following is the compilation pf .���.  ^a^fjgvp^^  should be of interest and con-  -  cern to Gibsons taxpayers.  We must bear in mind that  while the new council and its  mayor has only been in office  for less than two months the  mayor does come with a previous political record which is  grounds for fair comment.  When I took my seat on Gibsons Council in the fall of 1983 I  discovered that the preceding  council, of which Mayor Strom  was then Deputy Mayor, had  succeeded in running the town  into a deficit financial position,  which former alderman Hoehne  will know is against the law.  The trouble had started when a  cost-conscious council had  decided they could dispense  i with the annual external audit  \ of. books for a savings of about  $4000 per year.  The deficit was occasioned by  a borrowing by-law which did  not go to Municipal Finance at  a rate of 12 per cent but was  forgotten about and left in a  local bank during the high interest years. The result was an  unnecessary expenditure by the  town of some $160,000 in .unnecessary interest payments.  The Town of Gibsons in  1981-83 spent more in these unnecessary interest payments,  Mr. Hoehne, than it did on the  repair and upkeep of its roads.  This financial debacle occasioned the departure of the  town's administrator and saw  the mayor who had presided  over the whole situation rewarded with the town's top job, with  the assistance pf Mrs. Strom.  My studies of the situation  further revealed that in the years  1981-83 the Town of Gibsons  spent $711,000 on recreation,  ^Mrs. Strom chairman, and.only  W0;000 m its roads - -tifanF  yardstick a recipe for municipal  disaster.  If at this point, Mr. Hoehne,  you are still unpersuaded about  the need for vigilance in our  reviewing of the town's affairs,  may I refer you to the 1982  budget which will reveal an expenditure of $155,000 for  'parks development', said park  being the Brakstad property in  lower Gibsons, destined to  become a corner of the marina  parking lot.  Am I riot correct, Mr.  Hoehne, in my recollection that  the referendum passed by Gibsons voters a few years back  promised that no taxpayers'  money would be spent on the  Gibsons marina? Again, Mrs.  Strom was the chairman of the  parks and recreation committee  at the time of this expenditure  and again more money was  spent on that property than was  spent in three years on Gibsons  roads.  These are facts, Mr. Hoehne,  and I suggest to you that they  must cause us some concern. I  do not conduct personal vendettas in the pages of this  newspaper, Mr. Hoehne, but I  do pay taxes and I do know the  squandering of taxpayers'  money that Mrs. Strom supervised from 1981-83.  We could discuss the many  thousands of dollars the town  sank into dry wells above the  works yard during the same  period rather than approaching  the regional board about cooperation on water - but that  might be overkill.  Quite apart from Mrs.  Strom's record in office, Mr.  Hoehne, I must say I find your  concern for the democratic process unconvincing. It is my considered opinion that the Gib-  "sons Electors' Association; "of  which you were a leading light,  while claiming to be an objective community group in  August of 1985 held an all-  candidates meeting for a Gibsons by-election which appeared  clearly to be rigged in favour of  your chosen candidate, Mr.  Hoehne. That is a subversion of  the democratic process.  Finally, Mr. Hoehne, you  yourself have been quoted by a  former elected offical of these  parts as observing, immediately  after the November election,  that while Gibsons 'had elected  as mayor a known incompetent  at least we got rid of that leftist  Burnside'.  Let it be said, Mr. Hoehne,  that no one ever tried harder  than myself to keep politics in  the larger sense out of the job of  conducting the Town of Gibsons' business, but while the  fuzzy liberal left was writing  well-meaning little essays, even  in the pages of the Coast News,  about the need to keep politics  out of the town's affairs such as  yourself were organizing and  working to ensure that your  kind of candidate was elected  regardless of competence or  political record. '.  If the performance of your  candidates came anywhere close  to your hunger for control there  would be no quarrel but, as we  have seen above, your chosen  candidates frequently fall short  in the performance area. ������In  fact, your brand of unimaginative, close-minded conservatism has controlled Gibsons  for many years and the record is  one of almost unrelieved  failure, of which 1983  represents just a recent peak>  You may not be able to distinguish, Mr.^Hoehne, a discus-  : "sioh of issues from abusive pet-  sonal attacks. Your actions during the recent election campaign  indicate that this is so. I assure  you, however, that I can. I have  had good reason to learn.     -y  There will be no abusive personal attacks in the pages of this  newspaper,  Mr.  Hoehne, but  the issues and actions of council  will be scrutinized. The political  history of 1981-83 makes us insist that no such foul-ups will go  unreported in the future.     -*2  Let   me   assure   you,   Mr!  Hoehne, while I have no further  aspirations towards political o��  fice in Gibsons the newspaper  must continue to function as the  voice of the loyal opposition on  behalf of Gibsons' taxpayers.^  My only regret is that we ha^e  not been more vigilant in the  past. We erred on the side of  kindness. *2  The heart of a child  by Elizabeth Tansey  I am thinking .about the  minds arid hearts of), children.  --To a DjMt^the mind is for  thought and the heart for feeling. To adoeto%pfv psychiatry  such as Carl Gustav = Jung  thought is the speech of the conscious mind and feeling is the  speech of the unconscious.  In my long years ,as an  elementary school teacher I  taught about a thousand  children, most, of them in a  large school in the lower  mainland. I learned a lot about  the heart of a child and the influence of the family upon it.  The majority of our children  had loving families and went  away to lead productive lives.  Some of our children, sadly,  came from troubled families  and on their behalf the School  Board employed a child psychiatrist. It is especially the boys  in those families I am thinking  of today. The trouble makers in  these cases were the fathers who  appeared, for some buried  reason of their own, to hate  their sons.  I remember one case the  psychiatrist was able, to solve.  There was a boy of 14, rather  tall and clumsy, whom the other  boys on the playground  persecuted and he would cry.  His indomitable younger sister  in my grade four class had to  keep watch on him and drive his  tormentors away. His mother  said the boy was still grieving  for the death of his father, killed in an accident the previous  year. The psychiatrist  discovered the opposite was  true. The boy hated his father  who had treated him brutally  and was secretly glad when he  died. But in shame he buried  this feeling deep in his heart.  With our psychiatrist's help this  lad regained his self-possession  and was no longer the butt of all  the boys on the playground.  Not all the cases ended so fortunately. One man, whose little  girl was in my class, loved his  daughter beyond reason. He  would not even permit me to detain her after school to finish  her work. But his little boy in  grade three would hide behind  his teacher at the sound of his  father's voice in the hall. He  was like a little hunted animal.  The teachers, the social  workers, the psychiatrist, toiled  over this case endlessly.  Another situation I observed  was of short duration and  calamitous effect. It involved  another boy of 14. His huge  bully of a father burst into the  administrator's office waving  his son's report card and  bellowing that the boy be strapped to make him work. And if  he brought home another report  card like that he would '-get the  can beat off him". In a short  while that family moved to a  neighbouring school district.  Soon this boy appeared on the  outside of our school fence  looking in. The teacher on  playground duty told him he  must go to the other school  now. In a day or so a boy with a  gun began firing at the cars  passing along the main thoroughfare. Then he went up a  side street of residences and  knocked on a stranger's door. A  middle-aged man opened it and  the boy shot him dead. After  that he gave himself up to the  police. He was pur former  pupil.;  The most pitiful one of all  was a little boy of seven whom  nobody wanted. It was a  woman this time, aggressive and  violent, who abused him. Her  husband had decamped leaving  her with two sons to support.  She worked diligently to make a  home and a living for them. For  relaxation she entertained a succession of transient lovers all  noticieably younger than  herself. The snag came when a  young man appeared with his  own little boy. This man in turn  walked off but left his son  behind.  Here was a case for the  authorities to find the legal  guardian of this child. While  they searched, the boy was treated like a stray dog. His primary  teacher had several times noticed bruises on his arms, face and  neck and when one day she took  off his little shirt she found hjsj  whole torso covered with raw;  welts. When questioned fi$  could not remember who had  beaten him. In all my life I hav^f  never seen a more pitiful littler  creature. About then I retired^  and I do not know what haprr  pened to that little boy. ;^  Dr. R.D.

H�����?lt It�� IS 2if9��}Illl-&Cl  Editor:  To say the least, I am appalled at John Burnside's malicious  and unwarranted attack on the  Gibsons mayor and aldermen in  his "Musings" column in the  Coast News, December 30,  1985.  The mayor and aldermen  were elected to those offices by  the electorate of this community  and were given a clear mandate  to conduct the affairs of the  town to the best of their  abilities.  Such an unwarranted, vicious  attack on them after only five  weeks in office is nothing short  of scandalous, and a direct insult to the intelligence of the  voters of Gibsons. It is obvious  that Mr. Bumside is motivated  by his resounding defeat in his  ill-fated attempt to become the  mayor of Gibsons.  I am most concerned that  such irresponsible blustering by  an individual soundly rejected  by the electorate can create a  most unfavourable climate to  attract new industry or create  jobs in the community. It  represents, blatant misuse of the  media in order to vent a personal vendetta.  As a member of the community who is seriously concerned with creating a harmonious environment to live in,  I would suggest that Mr. Burn-  side find other ways of venting  his emotions and instead try to  become a responsible citizen  who offers constructive  criticism instead of abusive attacks on our elected officials;  K.H. Hoehne  former Gibsons  Alderman  Editor's note: See Musings  Editor:  There are some ������things; I'do  not understand, and some questions I would like to ask, re: the  proposed theatre.  Why cannot the Twilight  Theatre be used? I am sure with  a few alterations it would be  adequate for the number of  people who would attend. Furthermore it is in a more suitable  place.  More tourists coming  through would see it, and attend.  I^a theatre was built in lower  Gibsons, will it not cause a lot  of chaos for any parking anif  for traffic trying to get through?  If money was to be spent,  personally I think it would be  better spent on an extension to  the medical clinic - to allow  anyone who just wanted; or  needed an overnight stay - instead of having to go all the way  to Sechelt. More sick people  need help than people needing^  new theatre.  E.

Mel decided to step down as  'chief,   knowing   that   he   has  trained his senior officers to fill  the position well. During his  ���five years of service he ac-  * complished  many  major  im-  ->.provements for the residents of  the Gibsons area.  ���'-���; The West Howe Sound Fire  ���*���'- Protection District was formed,  -/providing fire protection to  v.-many areas outside the boundaries of the town.  ,-������<.<.. The referendum to build a  new Fire Hall and purchase a  Class A pumper truck involved  many committees and meetings  with all levels of government in  which Mel was deeply involved.  Mel has served his community 24 hours a day for five years,  leaving his work and family at  any time of day or night, and in  many cases, risking his own life.  We are sure that all local  residents will join with us in offering Mel Buckmaster our  sincere thanks.  We must also thank Willie  Buckmaster who has devoted all  her time to answering the Fire  Phone or being within distance  of that one long ring.  James Johnson  Gibsons Volunteer  Fire Department  Editor:  It is well known that there is a  high level of unemployment in  Canada, particularly in B.C.  and on the Sunshine Coast.  Polls show that most Canadians consider unemployment  to be the most serious problem  facing us today.  Now that the unemployment  crisis is on everyone's mind we  find that every scheme to make  a fast buck is promoted as the  answer to unemployment.  If there is the possibility of  public opposition to a development or industry the job pro-,  ducing aspects are emphasized  and sometimes wildly exaggerated. For example we were  asked to support Star Wars  because of the jobs it would  produce and we are told that the  parks and last remaining stands  of original forest might have to  be logged for the same reason.  Here on the Sunshine Coast  the promoters of fish farming  are telling us that we have a  choice of supporting fish farming or suffer continued economic decline. (Richard  Tomkies, The Press, December  10, 1985.)  Reports adopted by the  regional district clearly show  that the forest industry is the  foundation of our local economy and that the forests  should be the focus of our  economic activity.  Threatening us with continued and increasing unemployment if we don't support  fish farming is nothing but an  attempt to stifle any criticism  and public debate, on what is  happening to our foreshore.  Let's not allow ourselves to  be held up for ransom. Let's  protect our foreshore and work  on implementing an economic  strategy based on the real needs  and resources of our community.  Hans Penner  Sunshine Coast  Solidarity Coalition  Editor:  An important school trustee  election is about to take place in  Gibsons. As most electors are  aware there has been a great  deal of discussion about the  need for an independent inquiry  into recent concerns over child  abuse.

This comment in our opinion  calls into question the integrity  of everyone who signed that  petition because some clearly  stated that they were in favour  of a neighbourhood pub concept - not the Martinezes. It also  calls into question the integrity  of those people who conducted  the poll.  Whatever Mr. Marsden may  think of us is one thing but to  malign the pollsters and the  people who signed the petition  is without merit.  Jose Martinez  ment of an independent inquiry.  A strong, clear statement of  similar support from a successful Gibsons candidate  would be welcomed by those  who wish to proceed. i;  Of course, that candidate is-a  matter of voter selection.

Honourable mention went to  Cam Murray of Kamloops and  the prize for contestant coming  from the furthest point went to  Sauli Kieski who came from  Finland.  Most unusual costume prize  of a $25 gift certificate from  Peninsula Market went to Karel  Sass and Gordon Gemmell of  Burnaby who had attended the  swim last year and decided to  return because the English Bay  swim has become "too crazy".  Swansons Sand and Gravel  donated several loads of sand  for tiie beach. This was spread  by Vern's Backhoe Service,  under the direction of Lawrence  Campbell, Secret Cove. Youth  doing community work service  hours were brought in to spread  sand and clean the beach. Tom  Owen, Wilson Creek Campground, put in the float and  flags for the swimmers. John  Williams, Ministry of Highways, designed and painted the  special sign which graced the entrance   for   swimmers.  Mayor of Sechelt, Joyce  Kolibas was on hand to distribute Sechelt pins to all prize  winners and a "mystery" piper  turned up to entertain the large  crowds.  The Search and Rescue team,  the ambulance crew and the  RCMP also graciously provided  back-up support.  It is hoped that the swim will  attract participants who are not  necessarily long distance swimmers, said organizer Anne  Langdon.

The United Church ushered  1986 to the Sunshine Coast by  inviting a number of guest  preachers to occupy the pulpits  at Davis Bay and Gibsons for  the month of January. On  January 5 Reverend J. Willox  Duncan of West Vancouver and  Keats Island spoke on the need  to put God in our yesterdays,  todays and tomorrows.  At a time when tragedy and  terror have been daily concerns  this   message   was   most   ap-  invites  rs this  propriate at the start of a new  year.  The guest minister for  January 12 and 19 will be  Reverend H.P. Collins, a  retired United Church minister  who lives in Burnaby. Most of  Mr. Collins' ministry has been  in British Columbia, as a pastor  in Haney and Vancouver. In the  mid 70's he was appointed Personnel Officer for the British  Columbia Conference and later  occupied a similar role on the  guest  month  *   DIET  CENTER  886-DIET  885-2522  Lions TV bingo  Gibsons Lions are conducting  their TV bingo once again, with  a first prize offered of $100.

Jean Mainll  RETURNING OFFICER  staff of the General Council in  Toronto. Peter Collins is well  known in Scouting circles where  his interest, influence and  leadership have long been  recognized.  Mrs. Jessie Gairns recently  submitted her resignation as  organist of St. John's United  Church. For the past ten years  she has endeared herself to this  congregation and it was difficult  to feel that the church could  survive without her skill  The organist of the Gibsons  United Church was invited to  play at St. John's and Ken  Dalgleish was welcomed by the  congregation. Each Sunday his  musical ability is being recognized and appreciated.  At a reception in September  the United Church said its  farewell to May and Dudley  Taylor after they had sold their  beautiful home in Selma Park  and taken an apartment in West  Vancouver. Dudley Taylor served on the Official Board and its  Committees and in late 1982  was named Chairman of the  Building Committee for the addition to St. John's.  On Easter Sunday, April 3,  1983, the building was ready to  welcome close to 200 worshippers to its first service. May  Taylor left her stamp on the  well planned kitchen and its  contents which the ladies of St.  John's so much enjoy. West  Vancouver is not far away but  the Taylors are sorely missed in  the United Church here.

Mr. and Mrs. Maragos of  Langdale had their sons, Costa  and Andy, home for the  Christmas holiday. Both Costa  and Andy live in Windsor, Ontario, where Andy attends the  University of Windsor, and  Costa is the host of CBC's Morning Watch a radio program  that serves southwestern Ontario.  Following his studies in  junior college in B.C. Andy  enrolled in commerce in Windsor to major in finance. "That  will open up a wide, field of  choices," says "Andy,  "stockbroking, for instance.  But I'd be quite happy to come  back to Gibsons."  Cdsta joined CBC in Windsor in 1984 for the early morning radio program of interviews  and news. The show is increasing markedly in its number of  listeners according to newspaper  reports from that city.  When Costa was asked by the  . Windsor Star for his fondest  memory of Christmas fare, he  said, "I'm Greek and I  remember one national dish my  mother makes better than any  Greek restaurant I know. And  that's baklava."  Costa went on to say that he  looked forward to visiting Gibsons, and that he had promised  some friends in Windsor to bring some baklava to them on his  return. And his mother made  good his promise for him,  working a good part of Boxing  Day to do it.  A LOCAL SUCCESS  Lloyd Burritt, whose parents  live in Gower Point, has just  been commissioned to compose  a score for the official opening  ceremonies of the Canada  Pavilion near the end of April.  The composition will be performed by the Canadian Youth  Choir and the Vancouver Symphony. Included in the composition are parts for two synthesizers, a means of expression  that Lloyd has been an exponent of since his college days.  John Washburn will conduct  on this occasion resplendent  with the presence of Prince  Charles and Princess Diana  among other visiting dignitaries.  Lloyd graduated from  Elphinstone in 1958, and then  attended UBC where he took a  master's degree in music, majoring in electronic music. At  present he is drama instructor in  Argyle Secondary in North  Vancouver. Among the many  musicals he has produced with  the co-operation of staff  members was this past  December's Carousel, that had  full houses at every performance. ,  To some the synthesizer is not  yet an acceptable part of publicly performed music, but some  of Lloyd Burritt's compositions  have shown that it best expresses the mood; for example  in his Assassinations.  Lloyd's father, Ed Burritt,  says that Lloyd expects to find  his text for this new commiss-  sion  in  Marshall  McLuhan's  writings.  HOME FOR THE  HOLIDAYS  Kerry Mahlmari visited her  parents Mr. and Mrs. Cliff  Mahlman of Pratt Road in the  school vacation this past week.  Kerry is librarian and instructor in French in the Yalemount  Secondary School. And should  you not know, Valemount is on  Highway; 5 not far from its  junction with the Yellowhead.  "I thoroughly enjoy my work  and I love the area for its open  park-like setting," said Kerry,  and added; "It's not unusual to  see a moose strolling through  my yard in the wintertime."  "My house is near the Starrat  bird sanctuary sb I have lots of  open space in my neighbourhood."  Kerry said that she travelled  by train now that the route has  been re-activated and found  train travel a relaxed way to go  especially in the uncertain  weather this time of year.  Donard Mackenzie home to  visit his parents for the holiday,  is in fourth year Fine Arts  (Drama) in the University of  Victoria.  Donard and some of his  fellow students have staged a  play in Victoria, and they hope  to tour with it this spring; Gibsons is on their list of proposed  places to visit.  The play, by Canadian  author Davis Freeman, is entitled Creeps and its theme is the  problems faced by those with  cerebral palsy.  "I first learned to appreciate  the .difficulties the handicapped  face, not only physical but lack  of understanding by other people, when I worked in the Lions  Club summer camps in Saanich  and Kelowna this past year,"  said Donard, "and when this  play came to my attention I felt  we could do it with some real  understanding."  ERROR  About that $25 offer of a  donation to .a registered charity.  Of the several persons who were  good enough to telephone about  it, none came up with the error  that prompted the offer to be  made.  Somewhat unnerving is to  discover the likelihood of still  other errors in that news corner  of December 16.  Someone pointed out, for instance, that presepio is not in  the dictionary. It isn't. Apparently it is Italian and should  have been printed in italics, but  let me class that an oversight  rather than error.  A or an before a vowel?  Fowler states a eulogy or a unit  is acceptable and sb the news  corner's a European is all right.  And sea wave's foam is the right  possessive since the poster  showed only one wave.  Next week's news will  disclose the grammatical error  provided I can still find it  myself. Thank-you to you who  phoned about it.

Coast News, January 6,1986  Forge looking  for contributors  A typical backstage scene just before any theatrical production is the crowding for mirror space as actors  apply their face make-up. These anxious performers were preparing for last Saturday night's final production of Moby Dick staged at Sechelt's Greene Court. ���Brad Benson photo  Pages from a  Life-Log  Stumbling after Tom Waits  by Peter Trower  I  *>:���:���:  IS:.  tl  I guess I began to stumble  after Tom Waits, the moment I  ; first heard and saw him perform  '���;. :on PBS's Soundstage show.  y- With his strange, narrow, dis-  p solute elf's face, scarecrow  suite, hungloose slouch and an-  |:i cieht newsboy cap, Waits looked like a hip drunk who'd just  wandered in off the street and  started doing his act. Waits  sounds like Louis Armstrong  coming off a three week bender.  You either love him or hate  him.  But the most significant thing  about Tom Waits is neither his  scruffy appearance nor his  raspy voice - it is the words he  sings. For Waits is a true poet  with literary roots whose  "books" are his albums.  Waits is also a fine musician  and composer but. it was his  words and outrageous imagery  that most impressed me. A few  rusty wheels started turning in  ^my head. Maybe this was the  r,best way to present poetry. God  jf knows,   Leonard   Cohen   had  told me as much at a blurry parity, years earlier. I made no &t-  % tempt to follow Cohen's advice  ^'at the time since I was not particularly   impressed   by   his  funereal approach to orchestrated   poetry.   Tom   Waits,  however, was a whole different  ball game. His funky, blues-  based  approach  knocked me  out. Almost without thinking  about it, I began to drift in this  general direction.  For many years, I had been  trying to sing the blues with  various musicians at innumerable beery get-togethers. I  had also written a few song  lyrics for friends around the  Sunshine Coast like Dave  Virello and Rocky Zantolas. I  kept, these activities quite  separate from the writing and  reading of ' 'serious" poetry.  After encountering the work of  Tom Waits however, I began to  see a lot of exciting possibilities.  Perhaps I could combine the  two forms in a similar manner.  The first time I tried this,  came about quite inadvertently.  In 1974, video man Andrew  Krumins, then living in the area,  organized a concert in Davis  Bay with the idea of getting a  number of local artists on tape.  He conscripted a group of local  musicians and asked me to read  a few poems. It didn't sound  like the right audience for  poetry but I told Andrew I'd  give it a shot.  Apprehension began to  plague me as the day of the concert rolled around. I had always  read in quiet halls or dassrooms  before. This was a vastly different proposition.  My paranoia went into high  gear when I got to Davis Bay  that afternoon. There were a lot  of people. It wasn't exactly  Woodstock but there must have  been a couple of hundred music  fans milling around the band  stand where Rick Scott, Ken  Dalgliesh and other local musicians were laying down some  very solid sounds. The music  was great; the crowd enthusiastic - but the setting seemed  totally wrong for reading  poetry. These people were out  to boogie. What if they hooted  me off the stage? I decided to  chicken out. But before I could  corner. Andrew Krumins, he  was announcing me. There was  no escape.  I had worked myself into a  real lather by this time. I  blundered reluctantly onto the  stage but my knees were shaking  so badly, I had to ask for a  chair. Nervously, I read, a few  poems. The crowd responded  politely but after the music, it  was obviously an anti-climax.  Ken Dalgliesh, noodling away  at the piano behind me, sensed  my discomfiture. "Sing," he  whispered, launching into a  twelve bar blues.  It-seemed as good an idea as  any. So I did what I had never  done-before apart from drunken jam sessions - I put the  poetry aside and sang a couple  of standard blues. I'm no great  singer but I can carry a tune and  I'm loud. Also, I had the element of surprise on my side.  The lukewarm crowd responded  enthusiastically. It was the  beginning of an interesting  association for Dalgliesh and  myself.

Under the changes, offices  and stores which use a common  washroom would have a reduced rate. Dixon proposes that the  first office would pay the  residential rate and each additional office without washroom  facilities would pay 50 per cent  of the residential rate, y  This reduction is aimed at  satisfying some Sechelt  businessmen who had complained last year that they were  overcharged in their flat rates.  Other changes would involve  water meters, which Dixon suggests should be phased out in  the district to reduce capital and  maintenance costs.  in 1985  by Maryanhe West  ���'���jt  ��  i  I don't know -ibout you, but  I'm glad that feven with  satellites, computers and other  high-tech playthings we still  aren't able to control the  weather.

So for all you weather watchers what follows are some of  the highlights of 1985, certainly  one of the less predictable and  thus more interesting years.  While we didn't have a white  Christmas in 1984 there was a  little snow just before and a  good fall before the end of the  year which took us into 1985  with snow on the ground and  two weeks of bright sunny days  and frosty nights, a little rain in  the middle of the month and  back to unusual sunny days, and  frosty nights, not a record dry  January but almost. Only"1.38  inches in January is remarkable  and the driest January since  1962 with less than an inch,  followed two months with over  10 inches each month!  We had more snow in February, but less than average  precipitation and so it went on.  By the end of April we'd had  the same amount of rainfall as  I  in January and February of the  preceeding year.  Then came the long, hot summer and we continued to fall  further behind in the year's  total, and I found myself muttering "look out-in the fall,  we're probably all going to end  up with webbed feet."  But it still didn't come, except  for October which, with a  respectable almost nine inches  made it look as though we'd  catch up yet.  Come November and that big  ridge of high pressure which  kept the weather from the  Pacific at bay bringing in Arctic  air to fill the vacuum; sunny  days, cold nights and that  wonderful crisp dry snow, such  a treat compared to the wet  stuff which is our usual lot.  December followed with an  inversion which effectively held  off storms again and kept rainfall to a minimum. Not the  driest months -1974 was the  driest November with two and a  half inches and 1983 with 2.70  the driest December ���--. 1985's  three and a half inches for both  months puts them in third  place.   ���.....,  We haye'though chalked up  the driest year in the past 25  with only 33.75 inches all told.  This is considerably drier than  1970 the previous holder of the  record with 40.06 inches. The  annual precipitation varies between this year's 33.75 inches to  over 66 inches in 1968, quite a  spread..  The Chamber of Commerce  may be happy to know that the  average rainfall now stands at  51 inches, down from 53!  The more one looks at the  figures for the past 25 years the  less one is tempted to stick one's  neck out and make forecasts.  However, ; November, December and January are consistently  the time we receive most  precipitation, usually about 20  inches.  Of those 20 inches we have  had 7.18 inches, so you can  draw your own conclusions and  only be surprised; if January  doesn't turn out to be wetter  than usual!

Situated on the corner of Cowrie Street and Inlet Avenue, the Village Restaurant always seems to have room to  sit, whether it be in the front sectibnwhich is the least fancy, of in either of the other two dining rooms which are  more secluded. /  The menu is enormous, offering everything from devilled egg sandwiches to steak and lobster tails. As well, there  is an extensive breakfast menu, a favourite in the early  morning hours for those on their way to a hard day's  work.  I opted for a lunch-hour meal when I visited the Village;  thelplace was crowded although it was after the usual  lunch-time and the waitresses were flying from table to  table.  I decided on the fish and chips, although I was tempted  by the large selection of sandwiches, from hot roast beef at  $4.95 to tomato and lett/ice at $2.50.  There is also a full slate of burgers, each containing a  quarter pound of real 'beef. These range in price from  $2.75 for a plain burger to $4.65 for the fanciest.  Fish and chips comes with a salad, and it was unfortunate that it didn't arrive until the meal, which meant my  main course cooled a little while I ate my salad. It was  fresh, although it would have been better had the lettuce  leaves been drained more thoroughly.  However it .was tasty, and the price was right. The bill,  including a glass of chilled tomato juice was $6.70 - not  bad for a1 filling luiich.  There is always a great selection of home-baked desserts  on the menu- apple, blueberry, cherry, raisin, lemon meringue or coconut cream pie, ice creams, muffins, plenty to  tempt the sweet tooth;  The fare is plain and hearty, the prices are reasonable,  and the location is handy if you're in town to shop or out  for a walk and fancy a bite to eat.

Gal, A Groundwood Book  Douglas and Mclrityre  Wild Man of the Woods by  ;;Joan Clark, Penguin  While the world of adults  goes mad with hijackings,  .threats of nuclear disaster, and  the daily inhumanity of man  tpward his fellow man, it's a  : comfort sometimes to turn to  the world of children where fantasy still rules, where it is still  possible for magic to make  everything right. The books we  ] Want to tell you about this week  all have this quality of magic,  v Harbour Publishing has produced two beautiful books of  coast native legends this year:  How the Loon Lost her Voice  and How Raven Freed the  Moon, both by Anne Cameron,  best known for her Daughters  of Copper Woman. Raven and  Loon are small books - each one  only thirty-two pages in length  -but each contains a microcosm  of the culture which initiated it.  Thankfully, Cameron has not  tried to embellish the stories,  choosing instead to express each  one in language that has the  simplicity, of great poetry. Harbour has dressed these volumes  in elegant but durable dark blue  bindings and illustrated them  with the very fine black and  white drawings of Tara Miller.  Fantasy of the traditional  European variety is embodied in  Meghan Collins? The Willow  Maiden. It is the story of a  young farmer who takes shelter  in the Whispering Woods one  Midsummer Night's Eye and  there meets the enchanted  Willow People. He falls in love  with the Willow King's  daughter and - but of course, we  don't have to tell you that they  livehappily ever after, because  any good fantasy always ends  that way! Let us tell you instead  that the illustrations in this one  are appropriately misty and old-  fashioned but also exquisitely  detailed and innovative.  The last book we want to tell  you about combines an adventure story with fantasy. Wild  Man of the Woods by Joan  Clark tells the story of Stephen  who finds courage after he tries  on the terrifying wild man mask  which he finds in a hidden cave.  Parents and kids who attended  the Children's Literary Event at  the Festival of the Written Arts  this summer will remember that  Clark read from this story, and  that even the very youngest were  so enthralled they never uttered  a peep! Clark tells a good scary  story but always manages to  keep the reassuring promise of  reality within the young reader's  grasp. A good book for the  eight to twelve year old who  loves adventure.  ���S  Wees play in Surrey  l^i'While many of us were enjoy  ingChristmas at home, the  Sechelt Peewee Thunderbirds,  coached by Mike Dusenbury  Ken Collins transforms himself into an audience's delight -Cuddles  the Clown.

':  NDP ML A Gordon Hanson  (Victoria), has expressed serious  concern that as many as 500,000  eligible voters are not on" the recent provincial enumeration.  Hanson said "the government's own 1985 estimates show  more than 2.1 million people 19  years and older, yet the number  of people on the new voter's list  totals only 1.5 million.  "The total population in  B.C. in 1985 has increased by  approximately 100,000 since  1982," said Hanson, "but the  1985 enumeration list has  15,000 fewer eligible voters in  the province than the 1982  enumeration. The number of  people enumerated in 1982 was  1,575,623, while the number  enumerated in 1985 was  1,560,174.

"The government's excuse  that many people were not at  home during the recent voter-  registration cannot explain the  huge difference between the  eligible population and those  actually on the list," he said.  Hanson stated that the Bennett government is making it  more difficult for people to  vote. "They refused 18 year  olds the right to vote in British  Columbia and they shortened  the registration period after the  writ is dropped from 14 days to  10 days. Their absentee ballot  system is so backwards that it  took a Supreme Court decision  to make them change it," he  said.  Hanson, NDP Provincial  Secretary spokesperson said  that at one time^ community  groups could take enumeration  cards and ensure that all their  members were enumerated.  "The government has taken this  option away,',' he said. "Cer  tainly   this   will   reduce   the  number of people  enumerated."  Hanson concluded by calling  on the Bennett government to  take another look at current  enumeration procedures and to  consider doing a proper  enumeration of all eligible  voters in this province.

There  may be some impact on the  park but nothing can be done  without a public hearing.  "Cliff Gilker Park's integrity  is paramount in our considerations," he added.

The Nanoose Conversion  Campaign (NCQ has asked  Prime Minister Brian Mulroney  if his government would agree  to hold a public inquiry into the  Canada-U.S. agreement under  which the Canadian Forces  Maritime Experimental and  Test Ranges (CFMETR) at  Nanoose Bay, B.C., operates.  The joint use agreement  governing the use of the  weapons testing range is due to  expire in April, and the NCC is  hoping to block renewal of the  agreement or to force its  cancellation.  To support their demand for  a public inquiry, the NCC  gathered several thousand  signatures from Canadians.'; in  all ten provinces. These have  been presented almost daily in  parliament since November 19,  with many MP's from all oyer  Canada presenting signatures  from their own constituents.  As well, MP's from all three  parties debated the same issue in  the house on December 2, when  Jim Manley (Cowichan-Mala-  hat-The Islands) presented a  Private Member's Motion calling for a "public inquiry into  the exact functions and mandate" of the Nanoose agree  ment, before its present expiry  date.  Speaking in favour, of the  motion were Manley; Sheila  Copps, Liberal MP from Hamilton, and Mike Cassidjr, NDP  MP from Ottawa.  Speaking against the motion  were three Conservative MP's:  Ted Schelleriberg (Nanaimo-  Alberni, the riding that includes  Nanoose), Gerry Weiner  (Doliard, Quebec), and Patrick  Crofton ^squimalt-Saanich).  The debate took up all of the  alloted time for the motion, so  there was no vote taken and it is  not expected to come up for  debate again. ;.  The NCC is concerned that  negotiations for renewal of the  . agreement may have already  quietly taken place between Ottawa; arid Washington. Early  last year, Defence Minister Erik  Nielsen indicated that the  negotiations would probably  begin "later in 1985".  Questions from Manley arid  other individuals as to whether  or not the negotiations have  already taken place have so far  not produced any answers from  the government. The NCC has  asked Mulroney to confirm  whether   or  not   negotiations  have begun.   ���  As part of their campaign to  end the agreement, the NCC  has maintained an around the  Clock peace camp near the  military base at Nanoose since  April 1, 1985. They want to see  all weapons systems testing ended in Georgia Strait and the  base eventually converted to  peaceful, non-military purposes.  Work Wanted  Able worker. Almost any job.

I?-i  I)  |S* i  Pi  Ii!  ���: I'M  ll  I  il  in  A large-scale subdivision proposal for the Sargeant Bay area  was presented to the regional  board planning committee in  December.  The proposed layout shows  the foreshore and entire upland  to Northwood Road developed  for residential use.  All lots are one-half acre or  more in size and a number of  cul-de-sacs arid connecting  roads are drawn in.  The bog area, below  Redrooffs Road would be  drained into a lake there, to be  dedicated as park.  A 10 metre wide park dedication along the banks of Colvin  Creek and a park on the beach  below Kenyon Road are also  part of the proposal, making  PcnFosED  -SU&PI Virion  sion  7.8 acres of parkland in total.  Architect Bob Harrison told  the regional board that phase  one of the subdivision would  entail developing lots along  Redrooffs and on Eastwood  north of Fawn Road.  Area E Director Jim Gurney  complimented Harrison on the  layout but said it "might be a  little premature." The area plan  {2,2.0   "J��� t*��aof��  BO  Cjr^iWV   v���.1^    L*-.*ff  will be finished in 1986, he said,  and soil types should be clearer  then.  His concern was over slippage on the waterfront, which  has already affected houses  below Redrooffs and which  may have been caused by clearing the water table on the  upland bench.  But Harrison said he couldn't  see that there would be a problem on the basis of the gradual  slope of the area.  The board decided to let the  application go before the Area  B planning committee in January. In the meantime, district  planners will be asked to look at  the soil types in the area.  ' 'We could have a decision by  our planning meeting in  January," committee chairman  Brett McGillivray told Harrison.
