 iW  Legislative Library  Parliament Buildings  Victoria, BC  V8V 1X4  Published on the Sunshine Coast      25�� per copy on news stands     August 25,1986      Volume 40       Issue 34  Tree-girdling  Non-chemical  control works  Summer was fun for these kids and they celebrated at a get together  last week when the West Howe Sound Recreation Commission's  Summer Fun program wound up for the season.  Pass identical resolutions  More please!!  y-f-Ray Smith photo  Mynicjpalities want out of EtIG  It is clear! from the legislative  actions of both municipal councils recently that the municipalities are not enamoured of  the economic development activity presently taking place  under the aegis of the Sunshine *  Coast - Regional District  (SCRD).  On August 15 at a special  council meeting Sechelt voted to  withdraw from the economic  development^ function of the  SCRD, with only Alderman  Joyce Kolibas in opposition. On  August 19, Gibsons Council  voted unanimously to opt out of  the function.  The wording of the resolutions in both cases is virtually  identical and was apparently  prepared by Clerk-Administrator Lorraine Goddard of  the Town of Gibsons and cites  the lack of an Economic  Development Commissioner as  the reason for the action taken.  Former chairman of the  regional EDC, Barry Wilbee, !  points out that the appointment  of an Economic Development  Commissioner is not central to  By-law 228 and in fact is only  mentioned once in the by-law in  clause 4.2 where it says,..."if  such an officer by appointed."  Wilbee notes that both councils received representations  from former Economic Development Commissioner Vedo  recently.  : "The municipalities are  understandably frustrated by ���'  the fact that the previous commissioner neglected municipal  concerns because of his obsession with regional activities,  notably fish farming," says  Wilbee. "It is ironic that they  are venting their frustrations on  the commission which was  equally frustrated by Vedo's  l&ckof action on the-municipal  fronts;"  The most recent letter from  Vedo to councils was dated  August 7, just one day after the  Sechelt Council had originally  voted to stay in the economic  development function until the  end of 1986 with Alderman  Anne Langdon in opposition.  On August 7, when a joint  meeting of the two councils was  held Langdon presented to the  collected councils copies of a  letter from Vedo urging them to  accept his Economic Development Corporation as the path of  economic development.  Both councils deny that this  letter played a central role in  their thinking, though the  Sechelt Council shortly thereafter reversed its previous position.  Neither council could explain  why a copy of the correspondence was not provided to the       s  Sunshine Coast News though it  was quoted in a front page story  in another newspaper.  When presenting the Goddard resolution to the Gibsons  Council Alderman Bob Max-  , well/s^d he found th^ EDC to,  bV inward looking and ineffectual.  "There are lots of good  facilitators, there,'' Maxwell  told Gibsons Council, "but  what is needed is risk capital."  Former chairman Barry  Wilbee points out that the Provincial Manual on Economic  Development on page 66, cautions councils that research is  clear that 80 per .cent of new  development is generated from  within the community, hence  the new emphasis of the regional commission.  "As for risk capital," say's  Wilbee, "the commission has  done the groundwork for a  Community Futures grant from  the Federal Government, but  such grants will require that the  whole region provide a united  front. If there are political difficulties let's sort them out. but  vye can't afford to plUnge'f|a j.-wi1  y years ' ba,ckwaVds',' iiftcNfc1 -c^i  parochialism. - "^  1 Wilbee points out that a  Community Futures prototype  in Nanaimo with locally managed risk capital has a 97 per cent  success rate in businesses helped  with a cost per job created of  $600 compared to $10^000 in  federally-managed job creation  schemes.  Wilbee also notes that the  Vedo proposal, originally presented to the EDC last November, is a hybrid proposal  wherein Vedo asks the job  description of a business-funded  economic commission with freedom from political supervision  but wants local governments to  provide the funding.   ;  "It was pointed out at the  ' time that public funding would  require public accountability,"  Wilbee remembers,  "but the  point has not seemed to register  ' '-Mr. Vedo yet."  Results from an experiment  in manual control of red alder  in the Stillwater area Of Powell  River show that it has been an  outstanding success and last  Saturday Michael Conway-  Brown took a party of local  politicians for an inspection  tour of the site.  Area A Director Gordon Wilson attended oh behalf of the  regional board. Macmillan  Bloedel, who has funded the experiment, also has test areas in  Roberts Creek for which results  will be forthcoming in the Spring pf. 1987.  MLA Don Lockstead, MP  Ray Skelly and members of the  Powell River Regional District  also attended the inspection.  "It's  very impressive.   The  alder kill is estimated at 98 per  -cent,"  \yilson later told the  Coast New__.:  . "Rob "Tysdal from Mac and  Bio was also there and pointed  out that they are starting to look  at alternatives, as the fact that  they have funded, this experiment shovv^biitjthey still think  ;the hack -arjcL. squirt -(using  chemical herbicides) is more  cost-effective. '.':^.^-;-.-���,  "And the fact tfot they did  not allow Conway-Brown to bid  on other clearing projects  shows a direct commitment;.by  MacBlo to the use of herbicides.  '��� 'You know, a cost benefitN'  analysis on an economic ledger  will measure the hourly labour  costs, the cost of equipment, the  effectiveness per hectare, but it  doesn't measure the immediate  \  measure the effect on the ecosystem.  "It's too bad that people concerned about the environment  are not heeded. But the problem  is that there's a multi-billion  dollar industry out there with an  effective lobby group and it has  the ear of senior government.  We are starting to do to the  forest what has happened in  agriculture - creating a chemical  dependency. There are even ���  genetic seed types now that will  only respond to certain  chemical fertilizers and must  have a chemically created environment in which to grow."  Wilson is concerned on a  global level too.  "There is more than one  document of research that has  shown there are limits to growth  and that if we continue to use  chemicals the way we do and  damage the ecosystem we may  become extinct."  Conway-Brown has now patented his girdling tools, used to  cut the bark in a ring around the'  trunks of the trees, and the tools  will be manufactured in Powell  River. .  "This is an example of real  jobs being created. 'And the  method clearly works. Hack  and squirt is almost never 98 per  cent effective - as this (manually  cleared) site is.  ^ "This is clearly an alternative^  aiid now it's a question of ft-  tituqCM. n the part of the forest  companies and the political will  to change It." *   ",  For our Visitors  Entertainment.

The original error was occasioned by regional board staff  and sorted out afterwards primarily through Mayor Bud  Koch's office.  From the original $36,000 quoted the charges went down  to $9000 and subsequently to zero.  Terry Fox Run  "Terry Fox Run Day" has been proclaimed as September  14 in Gibsons. At last Tuesday's council meeting Acting  Mayor Jack Marshall made the proclamation which gives  community support for "the example and goals'of this extraordinary young man."  "Turn on and Live"  The use of automobile headlights during the daylight hours  has been shown to give improved visibility and therefore  reduce automobile accidents.  The awareness of the benefits of headlights during the  daylight is to be promoted and Gibsons Acting Mayor Jack  Marshall last Tuesday proclaimed the weekend of August 30  to September 1 as "Turn-on and Live" weekend in Gibsons.  Michael Conway-Brown, centre, is strongly committed to manual as opposed to chemical clearing of unwanted vegetation in the forests and last weekend conducted an inspection of the site of a highly successful experiment in the Stillwater area; the test was funded by Macmillan Bloedel. ���Ray Smith photo  "Let's talk politics" Mackenzie riding MLA Don Lockstead suggested and Liberal candidate Gordon  Wilson, who was representing the SCRD at an inspection of a manual alder clearing experiment, was  glad to Oblige. -Ray Smith photo Coast News, August 25,1986  Alderman Langctonl  should resign  We must suggest that in her delivery of an economic  proposal from Oddvin Vedo to a joint meeting of Gibsons  and Sechelt Councils, Alderman Anne Langdon was in  direct and unequivocal conflict of interest.  If the municipal councils had accepted Vedo's proposal,  Langdon herself as his close business associate is likely to  have drawn lasting personal employment benefits.  Before the fatherly aldermen rush to be gallant and protective, be it noted that, although she has not been known  to attend a single economic development commission  meeting since the establishment bf the function either as  reporter, a manager, or an alderman, Alderman Langdon  has been consistently in the forefront of a move to have  Sechelt drop out.  Couple this with her involvement with a counterproposal from which she could benefit and her behaviour  is entirely inappropriate and her resignation justified.  Mayor Koch told his council they would be watched  very closely. It was a wise warning that Alderman  Langdon ignored.  A varying  we will go  In the practice that time cannot honour of rewarding the  politically faithful, the provincial government has made an  appointment of breathtaking appropriateness.  In its appointment of Len Van Egmond to the Board of  Variance the government has hit on the man who may well  be the champion of variance on the Sunshine Coast.  Seaside Village, Binnacle Street, Homesite Creek, Len  takes a back seat to few when it comes to variance.  Now, if he can just persuade district municipality appointee Dennis Shuttleworth that the third man should be  Henry Hall the Sunshine Coast could lead the province in  variance.  At last! We can have a 'We're No. 1" button of our  own.  5 YEARS AGO  Clarence Joe Senior welcomed guests to a traditional  salmon barbecue at the home of Clarence Joe Junior  and his wife, Diane. A cake for the occasion was  decorated with the Secheit word "Kluhn-uha-ahk"  which Mr. Joe translated as "welcome".  Four Gibsons girls were selected as All-Stars out of  100 young B.C. volleyball players at a recent volleyball  training camp/held at Williams Lake from August 9 to  12...chosen were: Tracy Skytte, 12; fcuth Madoc-Jones,  14; Jennifer Rhodes, 13; Leah itenhett, 12. y.:i  "���-.���'.'',   ��� 10 YEARS AGO    -   y/.,-  '��� Census Canada has counted the population of Gibsons and the results are finally in. A letter from R.A.  Wallace, Assistant Chief Statistician, Census Field, has  been received in the office of Mayor Larry Laborite of  Gibsons.  The census information is given as follows: "Population for 1971; 1934. Current population figures for 1976;  1971".  These figures represent an increase of only 37 residents over the five year span. Aldermen whom the  Coast News was able to reach by press time were unanimous in their expressions of skepticism.  20 YEARS AGO  A five cent commemorative postage stamp will be  issued on September 8 by the Canada Post Office to  mark convening in Ottawa of the 12th General Conference of the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association, Postmaster-General Jean-Pierre Cote announces.  The stamp features, in the overall design, an unusual  view of the historic Parliamentary Library in Ottawa, to  symbolize the working of parliamentary government.  30 YEARS AGO  Irate citizens ranged Gibsons area Tuesday from  morn till night. They were irate because the registration  place in the United Church basement closed 24.hours  before its advertised time. Many were left without having registered for the September 19 vote. Commissioner  Mylroie said he had been approached by some people  who were quite angry at the unannounced closing  down. They d.emanded their right to register according  to the information published by the Registrar of Voters.  40 YEARS AGO  While  Infantile Paralysis  is causing  wide-spread  alarm in other parts of the continent, there have been no  recent new cases in B.C. and only three in the province  since the beginning of the year.  However/the provincial board of health warns parents to keep in mind these points:  - Good sanitation is the best means of prevention  known at present. '  - Flies may carry the disease. Keep them out of the  house.   .  - Garbage brings flies. Dispose of it promptly.  - Proper sewage disposal is essential.  - Avoid swimming in polluted water.  - Avoid over-exertion and fatigue.  - Pay strict attention to personal hygiene.

Vaughan, graduates from the  RCMP Academy in Regina, a  full-fledged Mountie. I may be  . forgiven if I mark the occasion  with a few personal  reminiscences which I hope will  stay on the tasteful side of  nostalgia.  That  first  time --in  August":  19761 only lasted till November  before I quit. ..I.-just* couldn't  thole the managemeht^t||j|;_of_,  my publishing predecessor -nof|; -  let  me  hasten  to add,  Freer*  Cruice who had relinquished the  paper a few months before.  By the begining of January,  Manuane and I and two others  had scraped up enough cash to  buy the paper and become business people.  Our inexperience was woeful.  None of us had ever run a  business before, none of us except briefly me had ever worked  on a newspaper before. Only  sublime ignorance could have  allowed us to plunge into what  was known as 'the most competitive newspaper market in  Canada' with three newspapers  battling on territory which held  at most 15,000 people.  Before three weeks were up  we had lost one of our major  accounts, whipped away to a  rival newspaper. We didn't even  know the game was played like  that.  We buckled to the business of  survival, however, with a will.  We made Manuane, with absolutely no business experience,  the bookkeeper because she was  tidy. She took to it like a champion arid for the more than nine  years she was here she was a  bulwark of humour, intelligence  and dependability.  The rest of lis were all on the  production crew. With inadequate machinery and inadequate^ space - we shared the  building in those days with Sunco Printing - we regularly worked 20 hour shifts on our Sunday  production days.  A typesetter who came from  the city joked to her friends in  Vancouver about her nine to  five job - nine on Sunday morning till five on Monday morning.  Nor did the pressure soon  ease. One of our two competitors had no sooner called it  quits when the economic recession hit in full force and our  survival skills, well honed by  this time, again called into play.  Towards the middle of the  decade we ' acquired decent  machinery, more space and  gradually polished our act till  production day was a manageable 10 hours.  Somewhere about this time  Manuane announced that she  was going to be a Mountie. We  looked at her as though she  were just slightly more eccentric  than usual. "Manuane," we  said, "you are a woman, ahem,  nearing 30 with two children.  How are you going to be a  Mountie?"  She had a bad back too, injured in a traffic accident but  she willed herself back to full  health and has just withstood  the gruelling Mountie training  in fine style. All of the other  obstacles she dealt with in the  same way. She just worked at  whatever the obstacle seemed to  be until she had the better of it.  In the nine years that Manuane and I were partners we  travelled a hard road together. I  could not have asked for a better companion, nor a more loyal  friend. I will think of her proudly on my birthday, as I will the  many other fine people present  and past who have journeyed  with us.  CONSTABLE M.M. VAUGHAN  Writers' Festival  A joyous test of stamina  by Peter Trower  I've seen hectic weekends  before but the fouth Suncoast  Writers' Festival (August 15 to  17) was so event-crammed that  the echoes and images are still  spinning around in my brain.  Now that things have subsided  to a mild uproar again, I will  endeavour to give you something approximating a blow by  blow report. ,  Friday, August 16. It hardly  seems possible that a year ha_  passed since we last gathered at  Greenecourt in Sechelt, to  celebrate the chancy craft of  word-slinging. I keep expecting  to see Al Purdy or Leon Rooke  but they were last year's guests.;  This is a whole new ball game  with a whole new team of  visiting scribes in the figurative  dugout.  Due to circumstances beyond  our control, Yvonne, her  daughter, Teresa and myself are  unable to make it out to the  Festival before noon. Fortunately, the initial event, Helen  Chesnut, the gardening columnist, has been covered by  another reporter. We arrive in  plenty of time for the second  speaker, travel writer and  broadcaster, Alec Burden.  Burden holds forth in a tent  outside the main hall. (The use  of the tent is an innovation over  previous years. Every second  event is held here and the device  works well except when passing  Tyee aircraft drown out the  speakers.   The   use   of   a  microphone would go a long  way towards solving this problem at future get-togethers.)  Alec Burden, a dark-haired,  congenial man in his 50's, proves to be a delightful raconteur.  He is also a professional actor  and this stage experience shows  in his easy, relaxed manner.  Burden drifted into journalism  and the theatre after a 20 year  stint in the RCAF. "I wasn't a  good enough pilot to take up  commercial flying," he jokes.  Burden began his career in  travel broadcasting with a five  minute spot on the CBC's afternoon show, hosted by Patrick  Monroe. After a couple of years  here, he moved to the CKO network and was given his own  program. Burden does five two-  and-a-half minute spots a day  and is heard all across Canada.  To fill these spots requires a lot  of continent-hopping and  Burden, as a result, lives a  rather peripatetic existence.  "I'm always coming home to  find cartons of solid milk in the  fridge," he observes.  But Burden wouldn't have it  any other way. He is a man who  truly loves his work, although  he admits there are certain  hazards. "You really have to  watch your step in Australia.  Practically every snake and  spider there is poisonous."  Burden, however, prefers not  to dwell on the negative aspects  of the countries he visits. "I try  to keep the shows upbeat," he  says.  Burden certainly keeps his  talk upbeat. He sprinkles it with  amusing travel anecdotes and  the two hour stint passes quickly. After fielding a number of  questions from the audience, he  closes to appreciative applause.  During the intermission,  Yvonne, Terry and I have coffee with Burden. We discuss  writing in general and he and  Yvonne compare notes on  various countries they have  visited.  Next on the Festival's agenda  is a high-voltage poet, Paulette  Jiles. Her book of poems  Celestial Navigation, cleaned  house in the literary awards  department, a couple of years  back and, for once, the accolades were justified. Jiles is a  genuinely good writer - a poetic  force to be reckoned with. I  have seen her read before and  been suitably impressed. I am  looking forward to repeating  the experience.  Paulette Jiles does not disappoint me or the, rest of the audience. She is a slim woman in  her early forties with a slightly-  reticent air about her, but once  she mounts the stage, she takes  immediate charge. Jiles is a  story-teller and much of her  work walks the thin line between poetry and prose. Tom  Wayman does essentially, the  same sort of thing but, too  often, his work strays deep into  the prosaic, losing the poetic  element altogether. Jiles never  does this. Just when she seems  to be lapsing into mundane  rhetoric,   she   leaps   suddenly  back into pure poetry, slamming you right in the cortex with a  fistful of glittering imagery.  Oddly enough, Paulette reads  none of the poems from the  highly praised Celestial Naviga-  PAULETTE JILES  Please (urn to page 21 Coast News, August 25,1986  Summer Play Parade says  you  Editor:  Gibsons    Summer   Play  Parade is over now and Gibsons  United Church Hall no longer  .rings of hammers,  saws and  trucks as sets and seating were  alternately being put up and  '���torn down.- Home for some 30  _;; of us for the past 25 days, it was  jjwith  mixed   feelings  that  we,  flocked the doors and took our  jj' bone tired, sweaty bodies home,  ^ relieved that it was over but  | generally   confident   that   the  i festival was a success and that  there should be another next  jsummer.  y We had some great au-  ^diences, many of whom came  Tagain and again.

Gwen Robertson  . Producer  Editor:  Living on the Sunshine Coast  for almost 20 years has left me  with many good memories.  One of my most pleasant  recollections is of the Labour  Day celebrations on the Sechelt  Indian Band Reserve about 15  years ago. The Band and the  Port Mellon Union with the cooperation of other unions put  on a salmon barbecue to mark  the event. It was always a  memorable day.  Men, women, children,  millworkers, band members,  loggers, teachers, fishermen  -they all came out to sit in the  grass in the end of the summer  sun.   Children   played   while  adults drank beer, relaxed and  ate the tasty salmon.  There were no speeches, but  it seems to me, looking back,  there was a powerful but quiet  spirit of camaraderie that  blossomed on that day between  the workers of this community.  After a few years the event sadly  faded away. Maybe sometimes  that spirit will blossom again on :  another Labour Day.

I,   for   one,   will   be  'seriously affected  by such  a  move.  -.^ Please, if you can find it in  your hearts to understand that  not everyone who benefits from  the Food Bank squanders the  pittance left over  from. their  Welfare,      Pension,      or  Unemployment cheques in the  . pursuit of an alcoholic oblivion,  ! let   the   Food   Bank   remain  available to those of us who depend upon it for the few decent  meals we get each month.  -   There are some 150 people  'who  receive  a small bag of  groceries containing the basic  ingredients for a healthy soup  or stew, and a few 'treats', (for  instance, two or three apples, an  orange or two and perhaps even  a few hot dogs or a roll of toilet  paper).

K.W.Moore  Unit 12 Leader  CMRA  No substitute  for midwife  Editor:  I have received some comments regarding my recent letter  on Private Duty Labour Nursing: it appears that many people  perceive me to be backing down  from my stand to legalize midwifery in B.C. This is not the  case. My husband and I are still  ���very much in favour of it as it  would   mean   that   midwives  ���^ would have to receive proper  straining and licensing as well as  y afford controls and protection  for both them and the consumer.  |||'v Midwifery   is   of  course  a  vlpeparate issue from home birth,  ll^nd I included the fee for it only  _&  ^gtp show how comparatively lit-  H_le private duty nursing costs  .*��"'  .__  $_,  &��  ' Jh ��� ���  '���<_���������  I have taken action on the  tissue of Private Duty Labour  Nursing as something that can  be done for women having  babies NOW, or at least very  soon, and with relatively little  fuss. It will be years before mid-  wives are able to practise as  main-stream birth attendants in.  B.C., and until then, this is  something that can be done for  the child-bearing women of my  generation.  I work to improve maternity  care in whatever way I can.  When a woman cares about the  birth of her child, the baby and  herself, she seeks out the best  care she can find at the time.  Private Duty Labour Nursing  would give her another option  for the present, midwifery will  be an option for my. daughter's  generation.  Deborah A.

Whatever the course of action chosen, a vote of thanks  and a great deal of recognition  is due Maria for the many hours  she has unselfishly spent in the  past and will likely put in the  future on behalf the area's  needy.  Thank God there are people  like Maria and her helpers, (not  the least of whom is her husband), or people like me would  often go on with a little less  hope, a little less faith, a little  less health and not much to anticipate from month to month  aside from another struggle to  "keep it together" till next cheque.

NEWS SLOW  Apologies to those searching  for last week's column. Even  waiting until the last minute for  a late break in the news, there  was nothing to write about.  Things should pick up when  school starts. That's next Tuesday!  Sechelts  to hold  last vote  The Sechelts' last referendum  under the Indian Act will be  held on September 20, from .8  a.m. to 8 p.m., at the Sechelt  Indian Band Community Hall,  Chief Stan Dixon told the Coast  News last week.  The referendum, in which all  Band members 18 years and  over are eligible to vote, is to  give approval to the Constitution which is attached to the  Sechelts' self-government legislation, Bill C-93.  "Everything within the Constitution has been ratified (by  Ottawa) including the financial  agreement," Dixon said. "It's  cost us $24,871 to get our lump  transfer payment. That's not  much to pay to get out from  under the Act."  The $24,871 sum represents a  discount which will come off  the lump sum payment, and is  the amount of interest which the  Treasury Board calculated the  government will lose by handing  the money over to the Sechelts  on April 15 each year instead of  in 10 installments throughout  the year.  There will be a general  meeting of the Sechelt Indian  Band on Monday, September 8  at 7 p.m. in the Sechelt Indian  Band Hall. This follows a meeting, on September 4, with the  Provincial representatives in  Vancouver.  After the referendum Royal  Proclamation is the last step  before the Sechelts step away,  finally, from the Indian Act.  "Then we'll have a potlatch,  and celebrate," Dixon . said.  "Let's face it - the only thing  that can stop us now is the  Sechelts themselves."  Kempf  to give  by-law  support  The regional district planning  committee will write to the new  Minister of Lands and Forests  Jack Kempf (formerly of  Lands, Parks and Housing)  thanking him for the support he  has promised for the "aquaculture" Wl amendment to Bylaw 264 which is presently  before the Ministry of Municipal Affairs.  At a recent meeting Kempf  told the board that he would  give support for the application  and the planning committee, at  last Thursday's meeting, agreed  that a letter should be written  asking giving thanks and asking  that his intentions be put in writing. Board members were pleased with the meeting.  "Face to face is when the  common sense really comes  out," Director Jim Gurney remarked.

The dock  S and marinas are bustling and, it  j seems, almost every day there  <$ are dozens of walkers heading  $for the Skookumchuck. Certainly the parking lot is often  | full. Maybe part of the attraction is Brian! He looks very  ^.handsome in his uniform.  I HAPPY BIRTHDAY  *C.   We had an important birth-  f day in  Egmont this month:  ��� Lloyd Carter celebrated his  *75th. Congratulations, Lloyd.  fit's nice to see a senior citizen  t looking fit and happy.  ��� HELLOS AND GOODBYES  f    There are new residents at  J Earl's Cove: John and Cheryl  ��� Fritz and son, Shawn. John is  J Gloria and Roly's oldest. They  *run    the     Fritz     Family  ��� Restaurant.  | It's too bad that as one family arrives another should be  �� leaving. The many friends they  'nave made in Egmont will be  sorry to say goodbye to Randy,  Jed, Amy and Shea at the end  of the month when they leave  for the island.  VISITORS  We had interesting visitors  overnight, Marilyn and Don  from Vancouver. Interesting  not only because they arrived on  a tandem bicycle, but also  because, unlike almost all  couples who ride tandem, they -  ride with Marilyn in front and  Don behind as the 'stroker'.  This is because Don is legally  blind so Marilyn is the eyes for  the pair when they cycle.  Despite Don's visual impairment he does all the mechanical  work on their tandem and on  the little trailer they tow behind  with their, gear.  He built their first tandem  from scratch. He is a graduate  mechanical engineer and-holds  down a job with B.C. Hydro  which, I'm told, is the same as a  sighted person's. And he's had  his visual impairment since  birth. One would hesitate to say  'handicap'.  Don and Marilyn had cycled  all the way from Gibsons the  day they visited, and they were  hot and exhausted when they  arrived.  However,  a dip in  North  rage for Kraft  A Norb Kraft aquaculture-  related project at Egmont which  promised to be controversial is  instead going ahead without any  zoning problems, Area A Director Gordon Wilson told the  regional district planning committee at last Thursday's  meeting.  "There seems to be a tempest  raging but there really isn't  one," he explained. "The  original plan went to the Area  Planning Commission (APC)  who opposed it. At that time he  wanted an 12 zone and the  foreshore area involved was  very large.  "Now he doesn't want an 12  zone (there will be no icing  plant), the dock facility has  changed and the foreshore  amount has been reduced. The  APC now has no opposition  because what Kraft is doing  there is not inconsistent with R3  zoning, which the land has."  Wilson also told the committee that former Area A director  Ian Vaughan, had done a great  deal of work to remap the foreshore for Kraft in order to provide more accurate information.  Acordingly the committee  recommended that a letter be  written to Vaughan thanking  him for his contribution. A letter will also be sent to the  Ministry of Lands and Forests  (formerly Lands, Parks and  Housing) to explain that there is  no issue which creates a problem in the Kraft-Aquarius  development.

Their  itinerary included riding to Port  McNeil, taking the ferry to  Prince Rupert, riding to prince  George, then taking the train  back to Vancouver.  Their tandem was pretty  heavily loaded with camping  gear and clothes for all  weathers. It's hard under such  circumstances to ride in a  straight line up the steeper  grades and cyclists greatly appreciate it when motorists give  them lots of room when passing.  THRIFT NEWS  One last item: Ann says the  thrift store has enough bags for  now but could use donations to  the book shelf.

It is once again .'DoUarlA-  Bag' days for the thrift- store  -which is open daily until /the  end of August.  The new owner of Lot 65 in  the Lagoon Road area of Pender Harbour has, according to  Area A Director Gordon  Wilson, "caused great controversy" but a compromise  looks possible he_ told the  Thursday regional planning  committee meeting.  A community wharf which  had been built at the end of  public access which runs between Blocks 64 and 65 has long  been used by local residents.  The present problems arose  when Block 65 was sold, and  along with it, the foreshore  lease.  "Even though he didn't own  the float, although he thought  he did, he demolished it..land  built a bigger one which far exceeds his foreshore lease and  has encroached on neighbouring leases," Wilson explained.  The new wharf has also blocked  access to Block 64, cutting off  the ways which are used by  those residents to bring in their  fishing boat for the winter months.  Although neighbours explained the situation, the new  owner apparently did not take  the information to heart and  has continued to develop the  site which will be used for RV's.  The Area A Area Planning  Commission has taken a long  look at the problem and has  decided that they would recommend that the present foreshore  lease of Block 65 be slightly  enlarged but the size of the new  float be reduced and the access  to Block 64 be replaced.  "Of course," Wilson added,  "there's another wrinkle. Now  everyone wants a public wharf  and they want the public right  of way to be cleared."  "This, for sure, will come  back; we won't lose track of this  one," Director Brett McGillivray remarked.

Gale of the  little Church of His Presence on  Redrooffs will bless the new fire  truck which was recently  delivered to the Halfmoon Bay  Fire Department. At the time of  writing I am unable to say exactly at what time this will happen, but any of the fellows from  the fire department will be able  to tell you.  SHORNCLIFFE HELPER  Irene Duff of Redrooffs is a  lady who is well-known to  Shorncliffe residents for the  many ways in which she helps  and gives of her volunteer time.  Some years ago Irene used to  work in Raymond's Beauty  Salons in Vancouver and still retains; fnehdsKip with' Mr. Raymond Hennessey who has a  summer residence on the Coast.  It was through this friendship  that Mr. Raymond very kindly  gave a stand-up hair dryer for  the use of Shorncliffe residents,  which is no doubt a much appreciated item. Gestures such as  this are greatly valued.  It should be fun at Shorncliffe next Thursday, August  28. This is the day of the monthly birthday party and entertainment will be provided by a  very special guest. The lady is a  singer who hails from Campbell  River by the name of Ruby  Bowes. Ruby is a very young 76  who still possesses a great voice  and who spends much of her  time entertaining seniors.

Pat, a former member of the  Aim Hi staff before moving to  Gibsons, is at present the supervisor of the Sunshine Achievement Centre on Industrial Way  in Gibsons.  "The group travelled in an  Aim Hi van, and the five clients  concerned raised the money for  the expenses of the trip by projects such as garage sales," said  Pat.  The group, which included  four staff members of Aim Hi,  toured Molly's Reach and also  watched a filming session. They  enjoyed the provincial park on  Porpoise Bay, Secret Beach off  Gower Point Road, and took a  walking tour of lower Gibsons.  "The highlight of their visit,"  said Pat, "was the panoramic  view of the coast from the ferry.  And for those of the group who  have spent a good many of their  years at the former Trahquille  institution, getting to see the  world a little was a new exhilarating experience for them."  BPWC CORRECTION  A correction in names in an  item in last week's news corner  concerning the Business and  Professional Women's Club.  The first Vice President  replacing Dodie Marshall, and  now President, is Audrey  Broughtori of Airport Road.  Audrey is also president of  the Elphinstone Aero Club, and  is a partner in the Supershape,  hair, skin and tanning centre in  Sechelt.  My   apologies   to   Muriel  Haynes   and   to   Audrey  Broughton for the error in last  week's report.  SQUID REPORT  Reports, from the fishing  vessels Ocean Pearl and  Laporsche, say that the brand  new fishing venture for squid is  well underway with some of the  four to five jpound creatures  already harvested.  The market for squid holds  some  uncertainty  owning   to  .RipaH's import quotas; aiid 'If  well-established   Argentine-  fishery.  The squid are processed on  board from skinning to cleaning  and to freezing. So far no  market to speak of for this  delicacy in North America - just  bait.  Gibsons  pavement  to be  studied  A short stretch of Cochrane  Road, between Franklin Road  and Atlees Beach will soon be  paved, Clerk-administrator  Lorraine Goddard told Gibsons  Council at last Tuesday's  meeting, pointing out at the  same time that the budget does  not specify which roads are to  be paved with the moneys set  aside for that purpose.  There is at present no priority  list for the paving of Gibsons'  roads and the new Works Superintendent Bob Marchand has  approached Council for approval to have an analysis done  of the pavement in the Town.  in a conversation with the  Coast News last week Marchand said that Council had approved the expenditure of  $10,000 to have Dayton and  Knight, engineers, complete  such an analysis which will then  enable him to establish a list of  priorities.  The analysis will give Marchand exact surface and base  conditions and also the costs involved in any necessary repairs.  The report will be ready by the  end of October, Marchand said,  and he is hopeful that work may  be able to commence on further  paving after that.  COMPUTER  DISKS  $1.79  ea.

Coast News, August 25,1986  __���  i;  Marshall Billy, right, fell asleep in his trailer with the propane stove alight last week and almost lost his  life except for the remarkable nose of Star, whose barking brought Barbara Fox, left, and Melba Akre,  ��� centre, to the rescue. Star is on the left and his mate, Morgana, on the right. See story this page.  Tragedy averted  Star comes to the fescue  . ^  v'  fi  ll  ���M  it'  <:  It was 2:30 on the morning of  August 20 when Star, the  $12,000 German shepherd owned by Barb Fox of Star Security,  started to bark frantically from  the car in which he was keeping  watch at Melba Akre's home,  just two doois down from the  Cedars Trailer Park which she  owns and manages.  Melba and Barb, inside the  house having a late night cup of  coffee after three tours of patrol  around the trailer park, at first  thought that the dog was barking at a cougar or perhaps a  bear, they told the Coast News  last week, but investigation  showed no sign of animal in-  \truders.  . Still the dog continued to  .bark, and strain at his leash.  Barb let him out of the car and  he dragged her off in the direction of the trailer park. It wasn't  until the three of them reached  the back of the park that the  women started to smell. the  smoke.  And it was from the trailer at  the back end of the park that  the smoke was coming.  "I banged and banged on the  door," Melba remembered. But  inside the trailer Marshall Billy  lay on the couch while thick  smoke filled his home. He had  fallen asleep while cooking his  supper and the pot and pan  were almost white hot by the  time Star and the two women  made their way inside.  Fortunately, they were able to  pull Billy from the trailer and  turn out the propane, but there  was considerable smoke damage  to the trailer and it wasn't until'  later the following day that  Barb recovered from the effects  of the smoke.  This is the third time that Star  has saved a life. On two other  occasions he wakened occupants in burning homes so that  they were able to escape the fire.  ''He's a wonderful dog. He's  trained for the detection of fire  and he can also do life-saving in  the water," Barb told the Coast  News. "His mate, Morgana,  (who was in Melba's house the  night of the fire) is trained to  detect drugs.  "There's no doubt Marshall  is lucky to be alive. That smoke  was really thick.  The trailer ;  could've gone up at any minute.'  We got there just in time/'? - -'\/  .-_%���;. ���  :_��'-.  ._;.��.-y>;qs;...

PIONEER PICNIC  The third annual Pioneer Picnic of the Davis Bay/Wilson  Creek area was well attended on  August 17. It was a family day  which began with a decorated  bicycle, tricycle parade. The  children did an excellent job of  fancying up their vehicles and  all earned prizes of some kind.  Thanks to the Chapman  Creek Fish Hatchery and Mrs.  May Senior, the carloads of picnickers who attended at the hatchery, came back very impressed. Mrs. May Sr. was most  gracious in conducting the tour.  The children had races before  the soccer game which involved  everyone from grandad to  grandson.  The afternoon was topped  off with a scrumptious pot-luck  supper. Evelyn Bushell played a  few tunes on the piano while we  cleaned up.  Thanks to Evelyn for that interlude, and many thanks to Bill  and Sue LeNeve who worked so  hard all day. Thanks also to  Hilda Costerton for her input  and flyer distribution, Lauralee  Solli for her help and of course,  to Turner Berry for his big smile  and support, and Jim Brown  for looking after the races.

Phone fun  There were complaints about  confusing the public earlier this  year when former Economic  Development Commissioner  Oddvin Vedo set up a private  Economic Development Corporation using the same phone  number, 885-4101, that he had  had when employed by the  SCRD Economic Development  Commission.  The possibility of confusion  was increased in the current  issue of the Sunshine Coast  telephone book when a listing  appears in the blue government  section under Economic  Development.  The number given, 885-4101,  is that of Aqua West, also listed  on page 37 of the white pages.  By the end of the week objections raised had apparently  caused B.C. Telephone to  withdraw the number from serviced Aqua West Manager Anne  Langdon could not be reached  for her comments on this  development.  active  50TH ANNIVERSARY  On August 16, Dr. Ron and  Alice Foubister of Edmonton  gave Alida and David Foubister  of Davis Bay a 50th Wedding  Anniversary reception in the Indian Band Hall in Sechelt.

Camp Sunrise, at Langdale, was the scene of  a music camp last week and 103 children from across the province  attended. See story this page. ���Ray Smith photo  Camp Sunrise  Summer camps  attract lS0C3^"  . For many Sunshine Coast  residents Camp Sunrise is a collection of small green cabins by  the water at Langdale, visible  while one awaits ferry departure, but this Salvation Army  camp has been in Langdale for  62 years and this past summer  1500 children have passed  through its gates for summer  camp.  The new Camp Director,  Captain Stan Folkins is enthusiastic about Camp Sunrise  and the work which is accomplished there.  "This has been an outstanding summer of fun and fellowship," he told the Coast  News last week. "We have been  able to share the love of God  with the kids and after all, pur  goal is to minister to their  physical, emotional and spiritual needs."  This past week saw 103 children from all over the southern  area of B.C. attend a music  camp. Of these, 33 had attended  last year but the rest were at  Camp Sunrise for the first time  and for most of them it was  their introduction to the world  of music-making.  The Director of camp activities, Bruce Ivany, who works  as a counsellor within the public  school system, sees specialty  camps such as this as a good opportunity for children to enjoy  themselves but with a focus.  "Many of them have never  been involved in anything like  this before," he told the Coast  News. "Not only do they enjoy  the camp experience and have  fun with each other - they do  crafts, go fishing and swimming, we even had a laughing  contest the other night - but  they develop self-esteem as they  learn new things.  "We want them to enjoy music, but our other emphasis is on  enjoying   the   Christian   ex  perience. We present funny little  skits each day, acting out making choices and decisions.  That's.very important and we  have to make those things relevant to the kids."  There are vocal and band  classes as well as theory lessons  each day, but the classes are  kept to a 45 minute length and  interspersed with physical activities and other programs,  Ivany explained.  At the end bf the week the  children presented, a musical in  the new Chapel, an airy, window encircled round building  with splendid acoustics and able.  to hold almost 200 people. On  the following day the children  returned to Vancouver where  they presented their musical, for  which they made all the sets as  well as performing all the  music, at a large Salvation Army church.  Camp Sunrise is open, not  only to members of the Salvation Army, but also to those  whom the Army's programs are  designed to help, like the handicapped and disadvantaged.  As well, the camp is open to  members of the Girl Guides and  Boy Scout movement.  During the summer Camp  Sunrise holds week camps, but  at other times of year-is open  for retreats and weekend  camps.  Capt. Folkins would like to  see the community be more involved in the camp and welcomes visitors.  "We had 200 people down  here for a Sunday School picnic  earlier in the summer and you  know, lots of those people had  never been here before. They  were really surprised at the  facility we have here and how  large it is. We'd like to change  that, and make Camp Sunrise  well known on the Sunshine  Coast."  _r  I-VU  Man-in-Motion  The Kinsmen Club of Gibsons and District is to be contacted by Gibsons Council and asked to organize and  spearhead the "Man-in-Motion" campaign in Gibsons.

The division has expanded its  services to include almost every  type of heavy industrial equipment. In 1984 (the last year for  which figures are available),  RivQuip's earnings were a  whopping $90 million, approximately half of RivTow's total  revenues for that period. Much  of this astonishing growth is  directly attributable to the company's acquisition, in 1983, of  the dealership for the entire line  of Komatsu products.  Lucille Johnstone explains:  "Komatsu, of course, is the  Japanese manufacturer on the  world scene, who are putting  out quality tractors and other  products to compete with Caterpillar. They have the full house  line representation of products  from around the world and actually, have a broader product  line than Caterpillar. The goals  of Komatsu - and therefore, of  ourselves as dealers, are to build  our share of market. That is not  to say that we are looking to  take on 100 per cent of Caterpillar's market but we do feel  that there is room for our quality products, as well. We are of  the opinion that Komatsu has  built a good name and are very  much in stride on their  technology. Therefore, we feel  that we can get a share of the  market. Our goal is to capture  25 per cent."  The advent of Komatsu as a  serious competitor on the Western Canadian heavy-equipment  scene, engendered a fair bit of  sensational publicity. "Caterpillar vs Komatsu", thundered  a headline on the business page  of the Vancouver Sun for October .19, 1985. "Finning, Riv-  tow go Head-to-Head in  Boisterous Battle of Equipment  Giants." It conjured up visions  of a veritable industrial  apocalypse - a world war three  of the heavy equipment marketplace with jiapanese. and  American machines l^keds|iv  clanking mortal -combat. yj&  photograph of Lucille'.vJc_hn__l  stQ$g posed prophetically qn:the  deck of a huge Komatsu tractor;  did much to further the illusion  of bellicosity and impending  mayhem.  Neither Lucille Johnstone at  RivTow nor her counterpart,  V.K. Sood, president of Finning  Tractor Limited, the long-time  distributors of Caterpillar products in Western Canada, was  particularly pleased by this  somewhat melodramatic view  of the situation. Nonetheless,  the fact that both companies are  competing for the same_ market,  remains a very real thing.  Finning president, V.K.  Sood, evinces remarkable calm  over Komatsu's incursion into  what, for decades, has been his  company's most exclusive turf.  He points out that Finning's  reputation is based on more  than mere sales figures. "What  do we do? Offer a complete  financial service - leasing, sales,  back-up, used equipment and  parts, and in the past three  years, complete remariufactur-  ing facilities."  The jury is out on this one  but there is no doubt that  Komatsu and its RivQuip distributors have entered the field to  stay.  On August 1, 1985, Lucille  Johnstone reached the giddy  pinnacle of her remarkable  business career. Longtime RivTow president Cecil Cosulich  became chairman of the company's board and she assumed  his duties. "I felt a sense of excitement and challenge," she  admits, "but also a terrific sense  of the responsibility. I had  almost 1600 employees relying  on my decisions now."  One might think that with all  this on her plate, Lucille Johnstone would have little time for  other duties or ambitions. On  the contrary. She has other corporate responsibilities, that include directorships of B.C.  Resources, Hiram Walker  Resources, B.C. Place and Expo 86.  She has community responsibilities too which include a  directorship of the B;C. Forest  Foundation and the chairmanship of the SARA Society,  which helps teen age and adult  victims of sexual assault.  As if all this were not enough,  Lucille also has writing ambitions. An article by her- appeared in a recent issue of Equity magazine and she plans to do  a book about her experiences in  the tug boat business. '*_fhfcre  were so many great characters,"  she says.  Lucille Johnstone is a pretty  great character herself.

Your guide to  the finest in  area dining  I  "Mommy, I'm hungry."  There are times like these after a long hot day, when I  wish that the little hand tugging on my pant leg was instead  resting on my shoulder and saying, "No problem Mom,  I'll fix my own dinner."  That, however, won't happen for at least 10 years and  she's hungry now so it's off to that seldom visited quiet  new restaurant at the Sunnycrest Mall called Willie's. Why  not, I hadn't tried it before, neither had the kid.  We opted off the salad route preferring instead some  deep fried zucchini. This was a very wise choice since the  zucchini was apparently very fresh and the coating was  light, delicately spiced and served with a heaping portion  of sour cream.  We opted off of the salad route preferring instead some  deep fried zucchini. This was a very wise choice since the  zucchini was apparently very fresh and the coating was  light, delicately spiced and served with a heaping portion  of sour cream.  For our main course I decided on a hamburger platter  and girlie chose the prawns and chips. I was delighted  when the waitress suggested a half order for her which is  available on all courses for kids under 12.  The burger arrived steaming hot, the bun wasn't soaked  with grease which I hate, and the mushrooms were fresh.  The burger may have been left just a little too long though  as it was a bit chewy. The prawns and chips were, by all indications of the 'yummy dos' emanating from my  daughter, very tasty. I liked the pom frits too which came  out perfectly. Not over nor underdone.  Typical of the whole day, we had more things to do and  unfortunately did not have the time to test the desserts.  Next time for sure.  I would recommend that the next time you find yourself  with little energy for your own cooking, try Willie's for a  change. The uncluttered simplicity of the restaurant and  the friendly service are sure to please you and your pocket-  book.  DRIVE IN- TAKE OUT  Chicken Shack - Cowrie St., Sechelt  -885-7414.

Camp-  Gardening notes  by Marguerite  August is the best time to  clean up the soft fruit.  Strawberry runners should be  removed as they appear unless  wanted for a fresh bed next year  by pegging them down directly  into the soil.  For the strawberry lover with  a small garden, or even no  garden, a barrel is the answer.  Make alternating holes a foot  apart, fill with soil and compost  and plant through holes in the  side. To get water down to the  bottom, drill a few large holes  at one end of a length of plastic  drainpipe and place in centre  before filling, when watering,  fill up pipe too. Roll out the  barrel and get growing.  Old fruited canes of raspberries should be cut down to soil  level and removed, also poor  and new growth. The remaining  canes are tied in, and thinned if  too plentiful. Black currants are  pruned either to the ground or  to a well placed new shoot.  We shall be judging the  children's largest sunflower on  Labour Day at 2 p.m. in  Pioneer Park. If a relative or  neighbour has one ask them if  you may enter it, no entry fee,  for kids only. Participants are  eligible for free ice cream  courtesy of Truffles. See you  there! Good Luck.

This time it was  Stroke Play with 16 men taking  part. The low gross was won by  Randy Legge with a score of 40.  Three men tied for low net with  3? score of 35. They were John,  Willcock, Bruce Forbes and  Dave Dougan. Randy won three  balls and the others won two  each. None hardy souls also  played with the Mixed Scramble  in the afternoon!  The club held their second  Mixed Fun Tourney with 43  golfers taking part and 12 coming afterwards as supper guests.  This was also on Saturday,  August 16.  The golfers went out in fours  (all as a team), with each golfer  playing their own ball, choosing  the best stroke, all playing again  from the best ball, etc., etc.  Because one only counted the  best ball after each golfer  played, it enabled each team to  have a very low score.  There were two teams that  tied for par for the nine holes  (35) and they putted off for the  winning team.  The winning team was: Bob  and Lyn LeFroy, Carl Rietze  and Elsie Colling.  The second winning team was  Pete Waycott, Evelyn Tapio,  Ernie and Ron Holloway, all  winning three balls each.  Runners-up were Randy and  Heather Legge, Pat Mitchell  and Bob Richardson with a  total of 36. The other, scores  were very close: 38, 40, 41, 42  and 43. Randy's team won two  balls each and all of the others  won one ball.  Supper that night consisted of  hamburgers, fries, salad,  dessert, etc., with a special  thanks to Jack Dumma for  cooking the hamburgers. Fun  was had by all! Someone was  heard to say before he started  that he had three duds on his  team. I wonder who that was  IX.!__>_;  Ladies' Day, Thursday,  August 21 had 19 ladies turning  out. It was the third day of our  2 of 4 Net Tourney and the  game was a flag event with the  best drive off the green following  reaching  par score  (35).

Upwards of a thousand people attended and many of the  events were sold out before the  festival even started.  Helen Chestnut began the  parade of literary artists when  she gave a talk on the business  end of her gardening column.  She was very reserved, in that  polite quiet way women of  culture and- education  sometimes have and talked of  her deep desire to explore and  study the Hebrew Scriptures,  commonly known as the Old  Testament, _, v ....      ,���..,,.���.,._.,  She Has a very developed  sense of humour that could  have been easily missed because  of her lack of obvious  showmanship. Both of her  parents were writers, and she  married a man with the same  background, yet, almost surprisingly, she stumbled into her  writing career by accident - applying for, and receiving, her  late father's gardening column.  So far, she has no interest in  doing a radio call-in program,  both from lack of time and  from the disinclination to be in  the public's eye.  Alec Burden followed, with  an hilarious yet informative lecture he called The Talking  Typewriter'.  This man was much more  confident orally although he  betrayed his slight nervousness  by continually rubbing his  forearms and, for the first half  of her performance, seldom  changing his facial expression.  He did, however, captivate  his audience right from the first  moment, regaling them with the  humourous story of how he  strived to be -the flaky actor'  and ended up writing the  'scripts, instead. He had no idea  of how to script-write, he ad  mits, but ended up blustering  his way through.  "I said yes and no a lot, nodding wisely..."  From there he went to radio,  doing a talk show on travel (the  main thrust of his entire professional life) and discovered,  much to his chagrin, that the  poetic form of writing (the  shimmering sands danced madly in the moonlight) just doesn't  go over on the radio.  You just can't talk the same  way as you write, thus, you  make the typewriter 'talk' as if  to another person.  Composed, ordinary, Edna  Alford could easily have blended in with the crowd - no one  could have pointed her out as  "that writer..."  She gave an excellent reading  from her book A Sleep Full of  Dreams that left the audience  ^-r;spefl3pifta^_^  over the horror of modern-day  institutions for the aged.  Not a sound could be heard,'  until, unfortunately, she stopped, then, a long, collective  groan; half disappointment,  half thankfulness at being  spared the knowing of an old  woman's fate with the functional, yet merciless 'hoyer'.  What looked to be "yet  another speaker on Indian  aritifacts" turned out to be probably the most interesting and  definitely the most educational  talk of all when Hilary Stewart  took the floor.  A small, thin woman, she  belies her stature by literally  commanding attention.

Dennis Foon, writer and co-  producer   of   Green   Thumb  Theatre began his profoundly  serious talk with a short play  performed   by    Driftwood  Players.  , _ ..It .was^humourpus rendjf ion.  of a young man in a strange-'  country,    where   the   other  children spoke gibberish to him  and played cruel pranks for not,  understanding.  The obvious theme was prejudice and from there Dennis  Foon launched into a one-man  campaign against bigotry,  racism and sexual abuse.  A broken clay pot (the tragic  ending to his play) lay as a poignant reminder at his feet, sym-  Industrial  i  The regional district planning  department is to begin work on  an industrial site inventory for  the entire Sunshine Coast. This  technical document will be in ah  easy to read and simple form  and will be for the use of potential investors looking for suitable sites for industrial development.  At last Thursday's planning  meeting Director Jim Gurney  agreed with the idea which was  .proposed by Director Gordon  Wilson but pointed out that the  project falls within the Economic Development Commission's (EDC) activities and  would be an opportunity for the  EDC and the planning committee to work together.  Wilson, while welcoming  EDC input, was clearly concerned that such an inventory be  nothing more than a planning  document.  "If it becomes a political hot  potato it won't work," Wilson  told the board. "What we need  is statistical information and  hard data."

"They've got nuclear reactors  and they've got adventure  playgrounds to offset them," he  said, smiling, but not joking.  Dennis Foon has personally  interviewed tens of thousands  of children from almost every  background, gleaning from  them their innermost fears, and  their brightest hopes. He  became unsettled by the horrific  situation they found themselves  in, an example being a black  child having a German Shepard  sicked on him by a white adult.  Despite this, he finds that" most  small children still have great  hope for the future arid he portrays this in his plays, J always  showing a' way out of whatever  situation he creates.  He spoke with eloquence,  with humour, and yet with a  direct seriousness that speared  the heart of a well-known,  . much talked about but little  understood subject: sexual  abuse.  His audience was uneasy, yet  attentive, the children riveted to  his every word.  A refreshingly controversial  man, Mr. Foon.  Saturday night was wound up  by a man who needs no introduction: Mr. W.O. Mitchell.  Full of life, Mr. Mitchell is a  very imposing man, every inch  the artist. The crowd spilled out  of the chairs, standing room only, and as he stepped up to the  podium, the audience, cheered.  Mr. Mitchell first expressed  his deep affection and respect  for his early mentor Professor  Salter and claimed with great  seriousness his need to work  with young artists as a way of  paying the man back.  His language was respectfully  salty, the twinkle in his eye a  dead give-away of his intentions, not to mention that he  was overheard in the hallway  teasing Betty Keller that he  wasn't about to keep his  language "completely clean".  W.O. Mitchell read from his  work What I Did On My Summer Vacation, a book that is?  isn't? autobiogaphical, a question he never really answered.  All in all, the Sunshine Coast  owes a great debt to the hard- ���  working members of the Suncoast Writers' Forge for bringing a lot of culture and talent to  our otherwise quiet little towns.

Capilano College is of fering a  new course for authors this fall.  Communications 280 - Marketing Commercial Fiction, that  will show how writers can improve the odds of success.  "This is not a creative writing  course," says instructor-novelist  Crawford Kilian. "It's intended  for people who are already pretty capable writers, but who need  help in technical areas  -everything from manuscript  format and storyboarding a plot  to researching markets and  reading a contract. The emphasis is on commercial writing,  something for which a market  exists."  Communications 280 should  enable students to research  potential markets in Canada  and elsewhere, and to understand the legal and economic  aspects of commercial fiction.  "It's no way to get rich  quick," says Kilian. "The  average first novel in Canada  may earn its author only two or  three thousand dollars - and a  bit more if it becomes an  American paperback. Writers  should understand the  economic facts of life before  committing themselves to a major effort in the field."  By the end of the course  students will have produced  three short stories in a commercial genre (mystery, romance, or  science fiction, for example), or  a sizable portion of a novel.  "Some students may not  write a word," says Kilian.  "They may just bring in a completed manuscript for assessment, edit it, and send it out.  Others may have to start from  scratch."  Almost all work done for the  course will be submitted to  book or magazine publishers,  says Kilian. "Given publishers'  slow reaction times, we probably won't make any sales  before the end of the semester.  Then again, we may."  Kilian, who has taught the  college's highly successful  course ih magazine writing for  several years, is a prolific writer  with six movels published-.*; A  seventh has been sold and is in  progress. He estimates his total  fiction sales at "somewhere  over 300,000 copies."  Communications 280 will be  offered on the college's Lynn-  mour campus on Monday afternoons from early September to  mid-December. Registration is  only with the permission of the  instructor, so applicants should  call Crawford Kilian at  986-1911, local 2585 to arrange  for an interview as soon as  possible. Total course fees are  $103.

Letter to My Son gave Gibsons audiences a glimpse of the  wonderful work of George  Ryga as it told the story of  Lepa, 65 years old, Ukrainian,  and in battle against the  Government of Canada for his  old age pension.  Through the story of this battle the man's life is revealed,  from his days as a child in a  country occupied by foreign  troops, two of whom killed his  Uncle Mikita on the cobbled  streets of his home town, to his  difficult life as an immigrant in  Canada.  The debt which this country  owes the immigrant worker is  clearly illustrated in this work  -"With these hands I built this  country. I made the pensions. I  made your job" Lepa tells Nan-  ���cy Dean, the social worker who  deals with his case.  It was the immigrant worker  who built the railroads, who  worked in the mines, who built  the roads into the north, who  settled and battled the prairies  to raise food.  Lepa, hard as his life has  been, is a poet too. He sees life  as a thing of beauty,, hard and  trying, but magnificent. His god  is not one of soft winds and  gentle birds but one of ice and  steel and fire.  ,The play, a dramatic performance/readings was powerful.  Josyf Stanishevskyj's Lepa captured the man's intensity of  feeling and while he told the  story of his life the terrible and  consuming guilt that he feels for  his treatment of his dead wife  and the alienation of his son,  Stefan, shone through.  Lepa is writing tp Stefan to  tell him why his. mother; died  George Ryga's Letter to My Son featured Josyf Stanishevskyj as  Lepa and Sandy Decker as Nancy Dean in a recent performance at  the Summer Play Parade. ���Fran Burnside photo  m  m  m  Sp  vm  ��__/  I'V-tt  ft*  Opportunity Knocking!

It's a task that Lepa finds difficult to complete, but as a dramatic device it is superb. It is  through this writing that we  learn of Lepa's life, of his battles, catch glimpses of his soul.  Sandy Decker as Nancy Dean  was the perfect foil for Lepa's  crustiness and the voices of Ken  Collins, Pat Baker, Barry  Krangle and Penny Fuller, were  strong and clear.  Gibsons audiences would indeed be fortunate if this play  were to be produced again in a  future season. Ryga's skill and  perceptions truly capture an important but neglected area of  Canadian life in a play that is at  pnce   funny   and   Filled   with  pathOS;   _. ..'���^-���-..

Bubble  decision  put off  The concrete slab at Brothers  Park, originally built to accommodate the bubble owned by  the Town of Gibsons, won't see  any use until next Spring when  council will once again examine  suggestions about its future.  The Jack and Jill Preschool  had wanted to use the slab for  rollerskating this past summer  but council dragged its feet in  making a decision about the  proposal. Jack and Jill had  wanted the town to provide  '< some > rudimentary equipment  and supplies which volunteers  would have managed, involving  an estimated cost' of some  $2000.  However, council decided  that an estimate should be made  on the building of a permanent  structure to cover the slab. This  was presented at last week's  Committee-of-the- Whole  meeting.  To complete the structure,  which includes concrete walls,  roof, electrical equipment and  the completion of washrooms, a  budget of $66,000 would be required, according to a document prepared by Works Superintendent Bob Marchand.  The cost of completing the  construction necessary to erect  the bubble which the town already owns would be approximately $10,000 and Alderman  Norm Peterson made a motion  that the bubble not be sold at  this time and the whole question  of what to do with the slab be  re-examined in the Spring.

The perfect setting for'.--, a  weekend get-together ' with a  group of friends. Unfortunately, it is also the perfect setting  for an increasing number of  diving-related injuries.  The Canadian Red Cross  Society reminds British Columbians that each summer, in B.C.  alone, some 10 individuals can  expect to become para or  quadraplegic as a result of  shallow water diving.  Young men between the ages  of 15 and 25 are the most common victims. Whether they  know the water or not, they  generally do not believe any risk  is involved. Often they resist the  idea that shallow water diving is  dangerous because they have  been doing it for years. But a  diving accident is a snap! The  outcome is devastating and offers little chance .of recovery.  The Red Cross urges British  Columbians to ensure the. safety  of their pools this summer. Provide depth markings and post  warnings against diving in the  shallow end. Make diving safe  and enjoyable. Learn where,  when and how to dive. You  may save yours, or someone  else's heck!  Patricia Marshall-Thompson  Canadian Red Cross  Water Safety Service  SUNSHINE COAST REGIONAL DISTRICT  NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING  Pursuant to Sections 956 and 957 of the Municipal Act a public hearing will he held to consider the following by-laws of the Sunshine Coast Regional District:  1. "Sunshine Coast Regional District Land Use Regulation Amendment By-law No. 96.99,  1986"  2. "Sunshine Coast  Regional  District  Subdivision  Regulation  Amendment  By-law  No.  103.67, 1986"  The proposed amending by-laws concern the use of land and the size of parcels on parts of  the upland of Hardy Island. Hardy Island is approximately 700 hectares in size and is located  northwest of Nelson Island and south of Saltery Bay.  APPROXIMATE LOCATION  OF PROPOSED REZONING  SHADED BELOW  H0t ��*  8����  *-���        *��. _  - 1. It is the intent of By-law 96.99 to provide a definition of aquaculture, to created new Rural  Five (A-5) zone for the purpose of permitting aquaculture and to make the following zoning  designation boundary adjustments on Hardy Island:  a) Parts of District Lots 1486, 1487, 1488 and 1489, Group 1, N.W.D. from Country 4 (A-4)  zone to Rural 5 (A-5) zone;  b) Parts of District Lots 1486, 1487, 1488 and 1489, Group 1, N.W.D. from Country 4 (A-4)  zone to Rural 2 (A-2) zone;  c) Part of District Lot 1488, Group 1, N.W.D. from Country 4 (A-4) zone to Commercial 2  (C-2)zone;' ' .  d) Part pf District Lots 1487 and 1489, Group 1, N.W.D. from Country 4 (A-4) zone to Industrial 1 (1-1) zone; and  e) Part of District Lots 1487 and 1489, Group 1, N.W.D. from Country 4 (A-4) zone to Industrial 2 (I-2) zone.

Editor:  Although it's generally improper for one journalist to  criticise another in print, it's  high time readers of your  newspaper heard from someone  in the trade regarding the irresponsible journalistic practices you have employed during  the past several years.  In this case, I refer to your  long-standing practice of personally reporting on, or editing  stories about, local government  and community meetings while  serving as a member of these  groups. Some recent instances  include your involvement on  Gibsons Council, the Economic  Development Commission, the  community development officer's advisory committee, Gibsons Chamber of Commerce,  and the Tourism Task Force.  Serving as an active member  of these groups while reporting  on their deliberations raises obvious conflicts of interest,  especially when One is an elected  official, as you were for a short  time. But your readers should  also be equally concerned about  your objectivity as a reporter.  How can they count on you to  report accurately and fairly on  such meetings when you have a  vested interest in the deliberations?  For example, on August 18  you wrote an extremely biased  report about the Tourism Task  Force meeting of August 13,  which both of us attended as  members. More than half of  your story focused on a minor  difference of opinion between  you and another committee  member over the selection of a  chairman. Because you failed to  identify yourself as the author  of this article, almost all readers  will assume the story is accurate, balanced, and written by  someone other than you.  When a reporter-editor-  publisher repeatedly used his  newspaper to flog personal  biases, he does a disservice to  both his readers and the journalism profession. When a  reporter quotes himself (as you  did in the above story) without  making it clear that this is the  case, he indulges in outright  propaganda or (in this case)  malicious gossip.  Such irresponsible journalism  wouldn't be tolerated most  places. Our community deserves  more than self-serving misinformation, from those who work  with words.  Jim McDowell  ��� ������  and Burnside makes reply  Editor's Note:  Our community does indeed  deserve more than self-serving  misinformation from those who  work with words, Mr. McDowell.  Some points pur readers may  like to note:  ; ^Though you apparently Aaw  been a journalist, most recently  part-time for the opposition  newspaper locally, you are at  the present time one of a series  of former Press employees  working at Aqua West.  My iong-standing practice of  reporting on or editing stories in  which I am a participant'? You  are misinformed Mr. McDowell.  During my two years as an  elected representative I refrained from all reporting on local  politics, turning that over to the  capable News Editor of the  Coast News, Ms Dianne Evans.  My objectivity and the  meeting of August 18? The  reporting member from the  Coast News, Ms Evans, was on  vacation and I was filling in. I  intended^ to say nothing under  the circumstances but was so  astonished and outraged at the  unexpected attack by the Manager of Aqua West, Alderman  Anne Langdon, on Captain Vic  Walker that I had to say a few  words on his behalf. Were not  the quotes accurate, Mr. McDowell?  One notes the delicacy with  which you refrain from naming  Ms Langdon, your employer,  or mentioning that you yourself  were her nomination for task  force chairman. Is this reticence  of yours self-serving, Mr. McDowell?  For   the   rest:    Gibsons  Thanks  Editor:  I would like to say a most  sincere thank you to the Coast  News for their coverage, and to  all who participated in this  year's campaign in aid of Cystic  Fibrosis. The collection cans,  concert and raffle were all well  received and with, personal-  donations, close to $3000 has  been raised through the efforts  and support of many on the  Sunshine Coast.  . This type of support gives  hope for young children with  Cystic Fibrosis to live to see a  brighter tomorrow.  Elya Dinn, Representative  Cystic Fibrosis Foundation  Sunshine Coast Branch  Chamber of Commerce writes  its own press releases, though  sometimes I report on election  meetings. I did write a press  release about the latest meeting  of the Sunshine Coast Economic Development Commission,  on which body I represent the  Gibsons and District Chamber  of Commerce, last week but  then I missed the meeting and  wrote the. report, as hard-  pressed journalists have done  before me I am sure, from the  published minutes.  Take away all of your emotive language, Mr. McDowell,  the 'outright propaganda',  'malicious gossip', 'vested interest'; . 'irresponsible journalistic practices', etc. What do  we have left? The new boy of  the Aqua West team, and what  a team - what a track record, is  leaping to the defence of the  lady who just gave him a job.  Your letter is, I suggest, a  textbook example of 'self-  serving misinformation from  those who work with words',  Mr. McDowell.  For my part, with three national editorial awards to my  credit ih the past ten years I do  not think I have to apologize to  you for my journalistic contributions to this community.  P.S. By actual measurement,  the report on the exchange between Ms Langdon and myself  at the meeting on August 18,  takes up about 30 per cent of  the news story. See 'more than  half in your offering.

Writers' Festival a test of stamina  '4  Continued from page 2  tion. She opts instead to draw  from a new work - a long prose-  poem sequence about a man  and a woman who have a  fleeting affair on a train.  Paulette is a strong and  animated reader who often uses  her hands to emphasize a point.  After reading, Paulette talks  about her work and takes questions. She was brought up in the  Ozarks and credits much of her  style to the story-telling traditions of that area. She tells a  highly amusing story about her  own family and the Rashomon-  like manner that a tale can get  twisted in the telling. It is a very  enjoyable session.  I am now confronted with a  problem. John Gray is performing that evening and I very  much want to see him. Unfortunately,   the   Summer   Play  ; Parade and the Writers' Festival  have overlapped and I am  booked to read poetry in Gibsons at the same time. There is  no way around this so we have  to compromise. Yvonne, Terry  and I drive down to,Gibsons  - and I do my thing. Then we  rush back to Sechelt, in time to  catch the tail end of Gray's gig.  This event, because of heavy  .'advance sales, has been moved  "from   Greenecourt   to   the  ' Chatlech School gym. Since I  missed most of Gray's perfor-.  mance, I can't really comment  on it but I am told by those who  were lucky enough to be there,  that he was very good.  I know Gray slightly and I get  a chance to chat with him a bit  at the wine and cheese party  after the show. We discuss  mutual friend, Barb Williams,  the former Gibsons girl who  became a Hollywood movie  star.  Saturday, August 17. This  day is considerably fuller than  the first. Yvonne, Terry and I  hit the road early and manage to  jrnake the first event which  begins at the unearthly hour of  8 a.m.   '���'...  i This is a rather low-key session with; Andrew Scott, the  editor of Western living, whom -  "Yvonne and I know quite well.  Western living is basically a  home and gardens book, ostensibly slanted towards the house  ri_^E^TfS^t beautifully pro-  *.���_.__*��������**������'.__. _���*��      -  JOHN GRAY  duced publication but its contents don't exactly blow me  away. In the past couple of  years howeve Andrew has introduced one very exciting innovation. He is now buying fiction and a limited amount of  poetry. I was fortunate enough  to be. the first poet featured  under his new policy. Western  Living is. the only major Canadian fiction market west of  Saturday Night and Andrew is  certainly to be congratulated for  bringing this about.  ��� The next speaker after Andrew Scott is a short story write  and poet named Edna Alford.  Ms Alford hails from Saskatchewan and she has certainly  learned her trade from some  distinguished word jugglers. She  has studied under the likes of  Jack Hodgins, Robert Kroetsch  and Bill Kinsella. fidria obvious- .  ly paid attention to her mentors.  She writes fluently and well with  a fine ear for dialogue and an  excellent use of imagery. She  too, is a rather low-key communicator but the quality of her  writing shines through.  Edna has worked extensively  in geriatrics and her new book  The Garden of Eloise Loom  deals exclusively with the problems of the very old. This subject is not exactly a barrel of  laughs and I found the first ex.  cerpts she read, a little depressing, albeit very skillfully handled. Edna closed on an upbeat  note however, with a wonderful  piece about two old ladies who  venture away from a retirement  home to attend the Calgary  Stampede. It is an exceptionally  fine little tale, full of colour,  pathos and wry good humour.  Edna Alford is definitely a  writer to watch.  Writer and artist, Hilary  Stewart is next on the list. I have  never heard Ms Stewart speak  before but Yvonne, through her  work with the Vancouver  Museum, knows the lady quite  well and has told me a good  deal about her.  Ms Stewart works before a  long table covered with  simulated Indian artifacts, all of  which are the product of her  own hands. Her talk is primarily based on her bood Cedar and  deals with the many uses to  which the Coat Indians put this  versatile wood. She goes  through the items on the table  one by one, explaining their  various functions. It is a  fascinating journey. I am particularly intrigued by the way  the native artisans burned and  split the planks fof their  longhouses from living trees.  There are few dull moments in  Ms Stewart's lively 'presenta-..  tion. She caps it all off with a  little piece of pure theatre involving a drum and mask.  Playwright and artistic director of Vancouver's Green  Thumb Theatre, Dennis Foon,  closes out the afternoon. Foon  is a children's writer but his  work is far removed from fairy  tales and funny animals. He  tackles real social issues like  racial prejudice and child  molesting. It is strong and  highly relevant stuff. ^ x  MISC SERVICES  / -ELECTROLUX   ��� SALES ��� SERVICE ��� PARTS  on our UPRIGHTS, BUILT-INS, CANNISTERS,  SHAMPOO/POLISHERS  VANCOUVER "RICES AT YOUR DOOR OR OURS  885.

Ably directed by Betty Keller,  the piece points up the bewilderment experienced by new immigrant (Barry Krangle) on his  first day at a Canadian school.  His classmates speak in pure  gibberish, totally confusing  him. The skit is very funny but  it also makes a valid point.  Dennis Foon, then mounts  the podium and outlines his  philosophy and his working  methods. He draws much of her  material from taped interviews  with real kids and writes directly  from their point of view. I  hadn't thought I'd be particularly interested in this segment of the program but I  found myself totally captivated.  Now it is evening" and time  for the de resistance of the  whole Festival - an appearance  by Canada's most esteemed  story-teller, W.O. Mitchell.  This eagerly-awaited event has  also had a large advance sale  and is moved back to the  Chatlech gymnasium.  What can be said about Bill  Mitchell? The man is a yarn-  spinner and raconteur of the  very first water. After an interesting introduction by Jan de  Bruyn, he-takes the stage and  begins to weave his magic. It is  significant that Mitchell both  1 opens and closes his performance with quotations from  Samuel Clemens. He is the  closest thing we have to a Canadian Mark Twain.  Mitchell is in fine, earthy  form tonight. Describing  himself as a "lapsed  Presbyterian", he sprinkles his  talk with mild expletives and  takes frequent pinches from a  snuff box.  Very much in the tradition of  Sam Clemens, Bill Mitchell  mines his own prairie childhood  for much of his material - and  he mines it masterfully. Three  of the four pieces he regales us  with, derive from his own  boyhood. One of them, an  hilarious excerpt from How I  Spent My Summer Holidays,  involves the digging of a tunnel  and the blowing up of an occupied outhouse. It is a priceless  piece of business that has the  crowd roaring.  For his final reading,  however,   Mitchell   abandons  both childhood and the light-  hearted approach to probe a  darker corner of the human  condition. This excruciatingly  moving piece describes the  meeting, in a deserted sauna  bath, between a professor, horribly scarred from an encounter  with a grizzly and a woman who  has lost one breast through a  masectomy. I have heard Mitchell read this before on the  radio but it remains a profoundly touching experience. The old  trouper receives a standing ovation for his sterling performance.

"There are 43 miles of  asphalt and 25 miles of gravel  road in the outlying areas of the  district municipality alone,"  Fraser told council members at  the regular meeting of August  20.  "Eighty per cent of culverts  are now located," said Fraser,  "and the number stands now at  over 500."  The Sechelt Works Foreman  reported, that the neWly-  purchased flailer was proving  an invaluable acquisition and  that the trimming of vegetation  along the roads in the outlying  reaches of the district  municipality was proceeding  steadily.  "Almost 70 miles of road  means almost 140 miles of land  and ditch," Fraser pointed out,  "and when you consider three  passes will be necessary with the  flail  on 'all   roads  then  you  Water rates unacceptable  by John Burnside  .'������ Sechelt businessman Bill  Copping is not impressed with  the adjustments suggested for  his water rates by the Sunshine  Coast Regional District  {SCRD).  ��� Copping, along with Tom  Lamb, also a Sechelt businessman, has been involved in a  four-year dispute with the regional board over what he claims  are excessive charges.  "Look at this," says Copping  and waves bills from the SCRD  at the reporter. As we have  reported before, Copping certainly seems to have a point.  His 1985 tax bill for his South  Coast Ford building on Wharf  Road amounts to $2079. His bill  for the Capilano College building which he also owned in.1985  and which is a comparable  building with more people use,  is $225.   . .  "How can that kind of  discrepancy be justified?"  demands Copping. "Those are  almost identical buildings." ..

No Visa & Mastercard  on these sale items  arriving daily!  COWRIE STREET, SECHELT  director Gordon Wilson Who is  preparing a report on the matter  for the regional board, agrees  with him.  "At this point I feeel that the  solution- is. to grant Messrs.  Lamb and Copping the water  meters they are requesting and  refund the excess tax collected,"  says Wilson. "The situation has  gone on for too long."  The Inspector of Municipalities agrees with Wilson and  Copping. In a letter to the  SCRD dated April 3, H.G.  Topharn supports the request of  Copping and Lamb for water  meters and questions again tlje  sole discretion in the matter accorded by the regional board, to  its Superintendent of Works,  Gordon Dixon. - ;y-   ������'  ; "...I have recently been/advised that Mr. G. Dixon ,i�� considering removing existing  meters. If this course of < action  is pursued it may only exacerbate the problem..." writes  Topham.  Despite the long-standing  nature of the dispute and the  recommendation of the Inspector of Municipalities, the SCRD  still seems reluctant to provide  Copping and Lamb with water  meters for 'policy reasons'.  Copping is in no doubt what  his next step will be.  "If I don't get this thing  sorted out very soon," he says,  "I'm taking legal action and I  will be seeking not only all of  the excess taxes returned to me  but damages for years of harassment by the SCRD."

Fraser expressed his confidence that the dump truck being  purchased from Pacific GMC  would come equipped to take  care of all municipal snow  plowing requirements but pressed the case for the purchase of a  municipal backhoe with another  man to operate it.  "Without a backhoe of our  own," said Fraser, "small jobs  tend to get put off dependent  upon the availability of a  backhoe and then situations  tend to deteriorate and require  more costly repairs."  During committee reports at  the August 20 meeting, Mayor  Koch reported that meetings  with the Town of Gibsons  would take place in the near  future concerning the turn over  of administration of the airport.  Mayor Koch also said that there  was a previously unreported  question of effluent from the  proposed fish processing plant  on the Crucil property on East  Porpoise Bay.  The mayor said he would be  looking into the question of fish  effluent in the bay and that the  matter would get a full discussion at an upcoming public  hearing.  Finance Chairman Graham  Craig reported to council that  he and Acting Secretary-Treasurer Anne Pressley (filling in  for the vacationing Malcolm  Shanks) were preparing a supplementary budget for the municipality for the balance of 1986.  Alderman Craig also noted  that a request had been received  from the Sechelt Library  Association to have the library  declared a district municipal  library _ It was noted this would  require a full-time librarian and  that the population would have  to reach 5000 before that could  happen.  Reporting from the Sunshine  Coast Regional District  (SCRD), Alderman Joyce  Kolibas told the district  municipal council that the  SCRD was to ask its engineering  firm of Dayton and Knight to  do a study on the sewer function. The district municipality  has been informed that the  sewer system, which now lies  completely within the district  municipality will at some date in  the not-too-distant future be  turned over to the town of  Sechelt.  Alderman Anne Langdon  reported briefly from a tourism  task force meeting co-ordinated  by Capilano College which she  attended on August 13 and said  that she was continuing to investigate the availability of Expo assets which might be required by the town.
