'The company has been struggling with this problem for over  two years, Dennis Munson told  the meeting, but so far things  have only gotten worse. The  mill has enough logs left for two  weeks of operation and after  that the 23 employees may be  laid off.    .  Suncoast Cedar is asking the  government's permission to buy  logs directly from the crown, a  practice allowed in the interior'  of the province. However, this  provision in government regulations had been used only once  oh the Coast, in Prince Rupert.  The provincial government  takes the position that coastal  mills can buy direct from the  Vancouver market, Munson'  said. But the cost of buying  through the logging companies  is prohibitive to the small mill  owner. ���'���������������_   yy . .  Several committee members  agreed that Suncoast's problem  was not an isolated one. A motion was passed that the committee send a recommendation  to the Department of Forests  and Lands that any future increase in timber rights on the  Sunshine Coast should be  allocated to local businesses.  Additionally, it was decided  to approach the provincial  government with recommended  changes to the Small Business  Program. It. was felt .that with  the, new government, reviewing���>,  policies and procedures in all  dbpartmehtsi tlie time wais ideal  for influencing changes in the  program which would make it  more applicable to small sawmill operations on the Sunshine  Coast.

While most of them asserted  that they had no objections to  aquaculture per se, the message  was repeated several times that  too many questions regarding  environmental impact are not  being answered. '  Carol Rubin, presenting a  brief from the Sunshine Coast  Environmental Protection Project (SCEPP) told the meeting  that "although Scotland and  Finland have published the  results of their experiences with  research data on all aspects of  the industry relating to the  avoidance of negative environmental impact, our government  has not seen fit to avail  themselves of this knowledge,  citing budget crises and  prohibitive translation costs."  One of the six recommendations made by SCEPP was that  pertinent studies be obtained y  and translated.

She urged the commission to think and  act as "citizens of the 21st century." She compared the  aquaculture industry to the industrial revolution of the 19th  century when "the people who  built the factories that created  acid rain could not imagine the  effects   of  their   smokestacks  when their industries first  began."  Whiter suggestions of specific  solutions to environmental problems varied throughout the  day, the message to the inquiry  was consistent, "We need more  information." -  Bill Prbcppation, Secretary-  Treasure^ Fish;  enrieh 1 -"Md- Alli^ W8rke__s?  Union (UFAWU) blasted the  Gillespie inquiry into finfish  aquaculture.  Procopation told the chairman David Gillespie that the  UFAWU had been informed  that they were not entitled to bring in technical people on their  behalf.  "Companies, in the guise of  technical experts have been putting forth their points of view  and promoting their vested in  terests. The ordinary person:  should have the same rights,"'  he protested.  His   challenge   came   after  several presentations by com-  parties who supply the aqua-,  ci^turjeuuiustry. ;  Diana: Hu; from Aqua Pharmaceuticals, had earlier led the  commission through half an  ^ %6ur'ci^f^cfulations, -disproving  a comparison made in a"  UFAWU paper between quan-,  tities of fish feces produced by a  farm and human waste from a  town.  Procopation ended by saying,  "You've already heard enough  today to give you the impression  that the only recommendation  that you can make is that the  government go through the process of a proper inquiry."  Santa Claus made the first of his appearances on the Sunshine  Coast last week. Here, Rebecca Boudreau of Roberts Creek lets her  Christmas wishes be known at Sunnycrest Mall in Gibsons.  ���'Ray Smith photo  Victoria,  urges water  rate change  Some commercial users of the  district water system will soon  by paying lower rates, but Sunshine Coast Regional District  chairman Jim Gurney isn't  totally happy with the new rate  system that is making it possible.  The Regional Board, last  Thursday, moved into committee of the whole in order to  discuss a restructuring of water  and sewer rates.  The changes are a result of  complaints made to the district  and to the Inspector of  Municipalities, Hector  Topham, about inequities between the rates charged for commercial users and residential  users. In the future, commercial  users will have the option of installing a metered connection  rather than paying a flat rate.  But Gurney says that before  this change, the district was  charging for a service, where  now they will be charging for  consumption. The resulting loss  of revenue could be made up by  increasing residential rates, a  suggestion made by Hector  Topham, but Gurney is  adamently against it. "In 1985  we promised home owners that  there would be no increase in  water and sewer rates for 10  years and we're going to stick to  that," he insisted.  The Public Utilities Committee will be studying the rate  changes and discussing them  with some of the more vocal  commercial users before they  take effect.  Musician Airline Collins entertained at the recent Arts Council Christmas Crafts Fair.      ���Ray Smith photo  Provision of school library  books controversial  Even the seemingly innocuous act of parents providing reference books for a  school library can have far  reaching political and  philosophical implications,  school trustees discovered at last  Tuesday's meeting. Extensive  debate ensued when the board  dealt with a letter from Marg  Gooldrup, chairperson of the  Pender Harbour Parents  Group.  The group is planning a fund  raising   campaign   to   solicit  donations from large  businesses. Each book purchased with a donation would then  be inscribed on the fly leaf "this  book has been kindly donated  by...". The project was inspired  by a report done by the Ministry  of Education's Accreditation  Committee . which found the  library to be poorly equipped  and staffed.  Trustee Dave Mewhort expressed reservations about the  project. "It seems to me that  the concept of public education  means that quality education is  available to all children. I think  we should be able to provide the  books for that library."  But trustee Doris Fuller  maintained that the donation of  books to school libraries was a  common practice which should  be welcomed.  The board voted to accept the  Parents Group's proposal but  to refer the issue of donations to  the policy committee for further  discussion.  ._.  i  ' i  1% -n  U  i 2.  Coast News, December 1,1986  Democracy  re-awakes  There were signs before the recent uproar over the  American sale of arms to Iran and the developing crisis in  the White House that the democratic instinct was beginning to stir again into life in the United States of America.  Despite the aborted grandstand play of the Reykajvik  summit - could the President have been dicing with the  hopes and fears that surround the nuclear menace just to  gain Republican advantage in the mid-term elections?  -Reagan's vigorous championing of Republican candidates  did not succeed in preventing control of Congress sliding  back to the Democrats. ..,-'_..._.,_ _  The failure of the summit and the defeat at the polls  represented the first setback of the Reagan presidency. It  was just a harbinger bf the growing scandal over the arming of Iran and the utilization of the money earned to supply the Contras in Nicaragua against congressional will.  Reagan is not the first president to grow impatient with  the political system of checks and balances built into the  American Constitution, impatient in fact with American  democracy.  A gung-ho President whose strong leadership has  satisfied Americans for six years is at odds with a fear that  in Nicaragua the United States was in danger of re-  enacting the tragic folly of Vietnam.  That he should, or his minions, pursue his aggressive  policies in Central America against the express wishes of  Congress aiid rby means of secret arms deals with  Ayatollah Khomenei who just a few years ago was being  represented by the President as evil incarnate, appears to  be top much for the American people to swallow.  As for his disclaimer of ignorance, Democratic senator  John Glenn j himself a bona fide American, hero put it  succinctly: "If the President knew what was happening, it  was a criminal act. If he didn't know what his staff was up  to, he wasn't doing his job."  The re-awakening of the critical spirit of democracy in  the world's most powerful nation is very welcome. With  mankind living on the edge of self-annihilation, a President as unquestioned as Reagan has been by the American  people and as poorly informed about the world in which  he wields enormous power is a frightening figure.  That he may now be seen lifesize and human by the  American people is the best thing to come out of this  tawdry exercise in Machiavellian politics.  Objection  . Alright we editorialized last week about the fact that inflamed indignation would serve no good purpose on either  side of the fish farming debate, but really.  One reads that the experience of Scottish fish farmers  has not been made available because of the 'costs of  translation'. Need I point out that there are Scotsmen  quite comfortable in their use of the English language and  some of them have no dout written reports on  aquaculture?      ~ -    - -  ,, 5 YEARS AGO  ' Sechelt.Band Councillor Ted Dixon died in a car accident, two weeks after presenting his band's brief to the  , Federal Human Rights Commission asking for freedom  from the Indian Act for the Sechelt people.  10 YEARS AGO  Coast Chilcotin MP Jack Pearsall sent out enquiries  to the local press last week asking their co-operation in  getting public feedback on the possibilities of locating  a new maximum security prison in this area.  20 YEARS AGO  B.C.

When the project is completed in September  1967, it will almost double the power available for  residential and industrial expansion on the Sunshine  Coast.'-   ���  30 YEARS AGO  When Sechelt's new municipal hair was opened at an  official ceremony on Saturday afternoon, four genera-':',  tions were spanned when Julie Steele, great grandaughter of T.J. Cook, JP; one of the original owners of  land comprising the present village, cut the ribbon symbolizing the opening of the hall.  A painting, probably one of the first ever painted of  the Sechelt area, was presented to the Sechelt Village  Commission by Geoffery Whitaker, great grandson of  the painter who in 1902 depicted the spot on which  stood the first post office.  40 YEARS AGO  James Sinclair, MP for this riding, will visit the  district next week, addressing meetings at Gibsons  Landing and Sechelt.

Bar talk  \  Jake had phoned the office to  say that he would be at the Mall  with'a pile of groceries and his  usual helpful neighbour was1 on  holiday. Could I give him a ride  home? &  I'd been thinking aboutthe  old timer with some guilt. -The  comings and goings of my days  had been so hectic, or seemed  so, that it had been weeks since  I had seen him. I dropped What  I was doing and headed out for  the meeting place.  Of course, as,old imbibers  though both reformed, we  repaired to the tavern for a glass  of something and a bit -of  leisurely conversation now that  the;opportumtyhad-app����tt?d. .  Bert the. bartender, actually  seemed quite pleased to see us  both, though he went; to isdme  pains to conceal thetfict_X ���   .  "It's the dynamic duo iii person," he said. "Arid how are  Batman and Robin today?"  "Mind your tongue, young  man," said Jake. "I'll have  some ginger ale and my friend  here, I believe, is ah orange  juice man."  "Correct,'' I said,    y  "If you guys are setting a  fashion I'm going to be out of  business," said Bert.  "There isn't much danger of,  that," snorted Jake.  "I see you've been reading  the papers," said I, seeing both  papers on the counter .where  Bert stood guard over the cash  register.  "You know that's the problem here on the Coast," said  Bert. "We've got a right wing  paper and a left wing paper.  What we need is a paper like the  old Peninsula Times, middle of  the Xpad;.'y'vy ������'������'������.,  "Bert," I..Said; "youtare as  predictable as the approaching  Christmas season. Do you ever  have an original thought."  Bert bristled as I knew he  would.  "Do you deny what I'm saying?" he challenged.  "Bert the difference between  the Coast's two papers is not  primarily one of politics, despite  the conventional wisdom mat  you espouse and repeat with  such shallow certainty."  "Who are you calling shallow?" demanded Bert;  "I didn't call you shallow,  Bert. Just what you said is  shallow. I actually believe that  you are an! intelligent' fellow  Whb'just doesn't bother to investigate his own convictions  and consequently ends up talking .rubbish much of the time."  ''I don't have to serve you,  you know," said Bert.  "And you don't have to talk  to us either," said Jake. "When  we need the sympathetic ear of a  bartender we'll be sure to let  you know:'' ���      /  ; "I see you!ve kept your bite  longer than you've kept your  teeth," said Bert.  ' 'Gums are more appropriate  to deal with the pap that you  serve up as conversation,"  shorted Jake.  Bert turned his attention back  tome.  "Alright, if the difference  isn't in the politics, where is it?"  "In this paper,'' I said, laying  a finger on one of them, "when  something is said you know  who's saying it. Right or wrong,  foolish or wise, you know where  it is coming from. In this  paper," pointing to the other,  "you have to wonder who got  to them last."  "That's your opinion and  you're not going to pretend to  be unbiased are you?"  "Certainly I'm biased. You  asked for my opinion and you  got it. Opinion is always biased,  by definition. I get tired of people repeating the kind of intellectual pap that you just dished up however."  "Listen, Bert," said Jake.  "Why don't you forget about  being obnoxious to your cus  tomers and tell us who's going jj  to win the Grey Cup instead." :  It seemed that Bert had ii  enough confrontation for the!  day's conversation. He filled up jj  Jake's ginger ale and my orange j<  juice and let us know why he  thought -that Hamilton would y  take the Eskimos in Grey Cup \  '86. Both Jake and I were hap- \  py to disagree, of course. \  Cynara  Last night, ah, yesternight, bettiikt her lips and mine  There fell thy shadow,- Cymarai'thybreath was shed  Upon my soul between the kisses and the wine;     ^-.y'.-.^  And I was desolate and sick of an old passion,  Yea, I was desolate and bowed my head: ���;        y 4y|^  I have been faithful to thee, Cynara! in my fashion.

I have forgot much, Cynara! gone with the wind,  Flung roses, roses riotously with the throng,  Dancing, to put thy pale, lost lilies out of mind;  But J was desolate and sick of an old passion,  Yea, all the time, because the dance was long:  I have been faithful to thee, Cynara! in my fashion.  I cried for madder music and for stronger wine,  But when the feast is finished and the lamps expire,  Then falls thy shadow, Cynara! the night is thine;  And I am desolate and sick of an old passion,  Yea, hungry for the lips of my desire:  I have been faithful to thee, Cynara! in my fashion.  Ernest Dowson  r'l-Sr,-_  Egmont News  Anne takes a trip to the city  by Ann Cook  Remember me telling you of  a trip to the city and losing my  little car on the ferry. Well, I  have done it again, no not lost  my car but gone to the city.  I decided instead of getting all  city-hyped up and hitting the  freeway at 90 after departing  from the ferry I would take it  easy and be Mrs. Cool, so I  took the old Marine Drive route  and enjoyed all the curves,  made me feel at home.  Then I hit Stanley Park  causeway, which says 60  kilometres but I had to really  barrel along or get rear ended or  finger waved off the road. Soon  I was doing 80 with the best of  them.  Boy if Constable Mueller,  who gave me a speeding ticket  at Selma Park could see me  now. In fact, there are so many  speeders in Stanley Park he  would think he'd died and gone  to speeding ticket heaven.  Oh to Georgia and we get  sensible again. Everyone seems  to know where they are going so  I'll just play it cool and make a  casual left, then a casual right,  then another left, I keep going  the right way on one-way streets  but can't get going the right way  to get into the parking lot.  Suddenly there's the parking  lot entrance within 15 feet of  me, there's a sign, a red circle  with a white line through it.  Constable Mueller flashes in my  mind's eye as I drive right in.  I can be cool as I have a  pocket full of quarters for that  grey machine that takes your  money and gives you a ticket,  but where's the machine?  Maybe at the other end as I  did enter the wrong way. Nope,  it's not there. Back to the other  end. Stand there looking un-  cool.  There's a big orange box with  numbers and slots to take coins  but no handle, no buttons, no  way to get a receipt. A sign up  high says to do this and do that  but I can't read as it's too far  for my bifocals and too close  for the other part of my glasses.  Maybe without my glasses? I  stand there like Mrs. Cool  pretending to polish my glasses  and I can't see anything. I slip  them back on and there's a  young girl shoving a rolled-up  dollar bill into the coin slot and  . then some coins and sails away.  So, Mrs. Cool keeps backing  up pretending she's waiting for  someone until the sign comes into focus. So that's it! Back to  litde car. It's in 39. Back to  orange box, pop lots of quarters  in slot 39 and cooly" saunter  down the street.  On to a shopping mall to buy  some cookies to fill the cookie  jars that I gave my grandchildren. That's easy,  everybody likes chocolate chip  and there's a cookie store. I  should have known if, like the  jewelery store, there's no price  tag you can't afford it. There is  a small print price sign that my  bifocals can't focus on.  The young lady looks at me. I  guess when you take in that  kind of money you don't have  to talk.  I cooly say I'll two dozen  chocolate chip please. I thought  her eyes widened but maybe she  was looking at the young fellow  next to me in a $700 full length  suede coat. She put a little  plastic bag over her hand and  started filling a little white bag  with cookies (it was a little bag  that would be comfortable with  two or four cookies in it). She  filled it to overflowing and then  said I only have a dozen and  maybe two or three more." I'm  getting the message but I'll act  cool. I said well I really wanted  two dozen. J  A girl in one of those $100  sweaters lines up with a $1 bill  for her purchase and looks im|  patient. Mrs. Cool says well the  dozen will have to do and peels  off bills like my purse is full of  them. |  As I cooly walk away I hear  Mr. Suede Coat say two  chocolate chip please. I'll bet  Cashmere Sweater bought one  cookie.  I walked away looking cool  but 1 sort of hid the little bag of  cookies in case I got mugged in  the parking lot. So I won't tell  you how I plunked $2 down to a  surprised theatre cashier and  asked for one ticket and sailed  into see the current hit movie;  How did I know admission had  doubled and tripled since I last  went to a movie.  1  . ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^1^^^f^^^^^^^^pS^^^^^^^^^^pc^^^_S^^_^l^^^  Coast News, December 1,1986  I _  QUALITY  OWNED  9 5  "\  Damage to foresfrore ecosystems feared  Editor's note: A copy of this letter to the B.C. Finfish Aquaculture Inquiry was received for  publication.  Dear Sir:  Apart from being a retired  senior resident of the Sunshine  Coast, I have no financial interest in the aquaculture  business.  I have two complaints to  make about the way this industry is being regulated. The  first concerns the way in which  fish farmers are applying for  and apparently being granted  leases up and down the Coast.  In some cases the same company applies for a number of  leases.  Would it be possible to implement some regulation that  stated that leases had to be held  by the lessee for a period of at  least five years and that during  that period a certain amount of  work per year would have to be  proven, as is done in mining  leases and homesteading?  This might help to deter the  entrepreneur from making a  mint of money by leasing or  selling the leases to another party.  The second suggestion is in  regard to the waste which drops  through the bottom of the fish  pens onto the ocean floor. The  amounts are quite considerable  simply by virture of the  numbers of fish. There is quite a  lot of wasted food that is  thrown into the pens and if not  consumed will drop through the  bottom and be wasted. Add to  this the waste excrement from  the fish and you are talking  about quite a considerable pile  of material.  Iwas at a meeting here on the  Coast attended by the fish  farmers and all kinds of experts  and when asked about this the  solution was to move the pen to  a new location and repeat the  process. It makes one wonder  what kind of people these are.  With all the fancy technology  we have today would it not be  possible to collect this excrement or waste before it reaches  the sea bottom and process it in  to fertilizer or something of that  sort and thereby clean up the  environment and at the same  time convert this waste into  money for the fish fanner.  Just because you can't see the  damage that this material is doing to a delicate ecosystem is no  reason to just brush it onto one  side and when one sees the proliferation of this industry on the  coast, it is a pretty scary situation.

Cowrie St.. Sechelt 885-2612  Editor:  We hear much about the  necessity of attracting industry  to Gibsons in order to encourage economic growth. Our  quiet, scenic locale is considered  ideal for the retirement sector,  but those who possess the  money to retire here do not  necessarily spend their money  here.  Being a single mother on income assistance, I cannot afford Vancouver shopping trips;  my entire cheque is spent in this  community supporting local  businesses and landlords. Perhaps those of us on a limited income are playing a more behe-  ficient role in the economy than  is generally appreciated.  As well, our children go  through the school system,  employing teachers; they buy  clothes, candies, toys, food, and  are our future source of  business and leadership. Why  not recognize the valuable contribution that we, single welfare  mothers, are making in putting  our children's well-being ahead  of a career!  In addition, we are eager to  eventually become financially  independent, when our children  grow older and need us less. We  are a resource of ingenuity,  energy and practical skills, lack  ing only a supportive environment.  There can be no finer place  than Gibsons to raise a child,  and with the already exising inducement of cheaper rents,  there would be little difficulty in  attracting more of us here to the  town's inevitable enrichment.

In his report to Gibsons  Council on November 18,  Buchan said:  "Following my experience  with the Gibsons Strategy Committee, my study of the issue  and the alternatives, and the  presentation made at the October 21st meeting of council by  the Economic Development  Commission and the Community Development Association  Committee, there is no longer  any doubt in my mind that the  economic development of our  area is another (house-  numbering being an example  previously cited by Buchan) example for regional rather than  municipal administration. I do  not believe the alternatives are  viable.  "The present regional structure, therefore, if properly administered (emphasis Buchan's)  and with the wishes of the  member municipalities being  addressed, is to be preferred  over any further fragmentation  of administration...  ' 'This recommendation  should not be considered in any  way prejudicial to the imminent  Gibsons Strategy Plan; I am  sure that the EDC would  welcome the input of municipal  strategies, .with their stated  priorities.  "In any event, while remaining an active contributing  member municipality with the  EDC function of the SCRD, the  Town may still individually pursue with its own forces its own  identified priorities as 'special  projects' for which special funding is. available directly to the  Town under.the 'Partners-in-  Enterprise'. program - in which  the Town is also a member  municipality."     /  Community Development ?.��  Officer for- the regional.y  economic development comrnis- ^  sion, Irene Lugsdin, said that  she welcomed Buchan's y  remarks, y  "His views dovetail exactly  with my own view of economic  development for the Sunshine  Coast," said Lugsdin, "and I  look forward to working cooperatively with Town of Gibsons as fully as possible."  Labour  opposes  deregulation  of transport  The deregulation of the  transportation industry could be  disastrous for the Sunshine  Coast, directors were told at last  week's meeting of the Sunshine  Coast Regional District  (SCRD).  Lynda Olsen, president of the  Sunshine Coast Labour Council, presented a brief outlining  the group's concerns about proposed federal legislation which  would: eliminate government  controls over.fares, schedules  and routes in the transportation  industry.  Olsen told the meeting that  "the deregulation and privatization initiatives of the current  federal government cannot be  separated from that government's headlong rush into the  so-called 'Free Trade Agreement' with the US." Explaining  that present regulations require  transport companies to maintain service on less profitable  routes, such as the Sunshine  Coast, in order to keep their  licences to operate, and force  operators to conform to government safety standards, the  council predicted "a dramatic  increase in accidents" and increased costs for shipping goods  to the Coast.  The Labour Council asked  the SCRD to support their call  for a halt to deregulation until a  full public debate has been held.  The board referred the matter  to the transportation committee.  j. _____���_._���_.___._._._._��� _._,���_*_��� _ .<j  ;  Quote of the Week?

The Community Hall was brightly decorated  by the Play School mothers with  some help from elementary  school students.  The fishing families of the  Harbour combined to produce-  and prepare a wonderful variety  of seafood, squid and salmon,  sea cucumber and shrimp, cod,  oysters, and you name it. The  tables fairly groaned under their  burden of goodies, from a  magnificent 52 pound baked  Spring Salmon to helping plates  Paint additive effects feared  Although the United  Fishermen and Allied Workers  Union (UFAWU) had already  presented a brief to the Gillespie  Commission on aquaculture, a  supplementary brief was submitted at the public meeting in  Sechelt last .week. The supplement dealt with the use of  Tributyl-tin (TBT) as an additive to paints used on fish  farms.  Geoff Meggs, speaking for  the UFAWU, told the commission that TBT, which is used to  stop the growth of algae and  barnacles on pen nets, has been  termed "one of the most toxic  substances known to man" by  several scientists, and that "it  can be toxic to marine life in  levels as low as five parts per  trillion."  Although the impact of TBT  on oyster populations is  acknowledged, Meggs said that  aquaculture suppliers in Vancouver, Campbell River and  Sechelt offer anti-fouling paint  containing TBT, name brand  Flexguard, for use on nets.  But Ken Lund, who manages  a farm for Aquarius Seafarms  Ltd., told chairman David  Gillespie that his farm uses the  Flexguard nets and have had no  trouble with them.  Steve Marsh, presenting a  brief for the Aquaculture  Resource Centre, said that while  he would recommend that fish  farmers avoid using paint con-  Public Works      Travaux publics  Canada Canada  INVITATION TO TENDER  SEALED TENDERS for the projects or services listed  below, addressed to the Chief, Contract Policy and Administration, Pacific Region, Department of Public Works,  Canada, 1166 Alberni Street, Vancouver, BC V6E 3W5 will  be received until the specific closing time and date.

Accompanying the UFAWU  brief was a copy of a recent  American government study  which detected TBT in farmed  fish offered for retail sale. This  is the first time, Meggs told the  meeting, that TBT has been  found in the human food chain.  The brief concluded by  recommending a complete halt  on the use of TBT paint in the  aquaculture industry and immediate allocation of funds to  determine what impact its use  has had on shellfish.

There  was plenty for seconds and even  thirds for those not worried  about waist lines, and the food  was so good that everyone went  back for more.. The food was  prepared by local ladies and  gentlemen who each prepared  their favourite recipe, the food  was set out by the high school  cheer leaders under the supervision of Shirley Vader.  Overall organizing was  capably handled by Jane Reid  and Nancy Brown helped by  Marj Campbell, and our cheer  leaders policed the tables, taking away mountains of prawn  shells and dispensing coffee.  There was a sell-out crowd  with all the fishing families well  represented along with their  friends who were lucky enough  to get tickets. The bar was manned by the gallant gentlemen of  the Volunteer Fire Brigades,  under the capable supervision  of Bill Hunsche and they were  . kept very busy, smoked salmon  gives you quite a thirst.  This being the twentieth consecutive Fisherman's Homecoming Ball it was marked by a  presentation to Ed Lowe who  got the idea in 1967 and then  put it on almost single handed,  and then has taken part and  been Master of Ceremonies in  every one since. Ed was given a  warm and well deserved round  of applause upon the presentation.  While we were digesting all  that fine food and sneaking just  one more prawn, Ed Lowe and  Jane Reid ran the draw for the  many prizes donated by local  businesses and by firms connected with the fishing industry.  Henry Hunt did a great job in  soliciting prizes from our local  firms.  Then the Bright Nites Orchestra provided us with toe  tapping music which soon had  the floor full of happy dancers.  When the orchestra wanted to  quit at 1 a.m. they were persuaded by the merry crowd, and  being outnumbered they did  play until 2 a.m.  The whole evening was well  summed up by a couple from  the US who said they could not  remember when they last had so *  much fun.

We affectionately  called him "the old smoothie".  Ron was very active in the  Roberts Creek Legion and  worked hard to make it the asset  enjoyed by so many in the com-  :munity. Few people would be  dedicated enough to dig out the  basement by hand to make the  pool rppm the way he did a few  years ago.  He also worked on the golf  course when it was being built, a  feat; hard to imagine for those  of lis who only know the finished product of beautiful rolling  lawn. He. was a hard worker  a lot of fun. That's how I  knew him and will remember  him.  Roberts Creek Legion  will  hold a memorial service to Ron  Oram at 2:30 p.m. Monday at  the Legion Hall.

Names like the Dorseys, Glen  Miller, Artie Shaw, Benny  Goodman, and even Wayne  King, the Waltz King, are just a  few of those whose music still  can charm the younger as well  as the older folic.  The Harbour Lights Orchestra is led by Les Fowler of  Madeira Park, and the musicians come from many areas of  the Sunshine Coast. All the big  band sound is there, trumpets,  trombones, saxophones, and all  the rest that produce that  mellow, romantic tone.  The band has organized and  supports financially a music  school in Pender Harbour. The  members provide instruction in  correct methods, tapes to guide  home practise, books, and  stands for the weekly sessions in  a building, once a Forestry  warehouse and offices, and now  owned by the Regional District.  Seventeen children and two  adults are at present enrolled in  the music school, and a few  teens have a session of their own  with the amplifiers on.  "The Harbour Lights Orchestra was very generous in its  support of your Centennial  dance last May if said Sheila,  "a dance that was a fund-raiser  for the swimming pool. They're  a very community-minded  group, those musicians."  MISCELLANEOUS  Langdale Elementary pupils  were much impressed with the  practical lessons taught in the  "Get Out Alive" program that  visiting firemen gave.  And they were delighted by  the lively and charming stories  of Wive^Tal^f Melaiiifc -Ray,  and Nan Gregbiry.

Sometime back in the mid-  seventies, I was visiting the late  Hubert Evans at his seaside  Roberts Creek home. Hubert,  one of Canada's most respected  writers, was then in his late 80's,  physically frail and with his  eyesight nearly gone. But the infirmities of age had not dimmed  his great spirit. Amazingly,  Hubert was at work on a new  novel (the justly acclaimed O  Time In Your Flight) and was  also producing poetry for the  first time in his long life. When  he was up to it, Hubert welcomed visitors and delighted to talk  about writers and writing.  On this particular occasion,  the talk drifted around to story  ideas. Hubert remarked that  there was one piece he had  always wanted to write but had  never gotten around to doing. It  involved a spectacular train  crash on the old Kettle Valley  Line in the late 20's or early 30's  (Hubert wasn't sure of the  precise year). He suggested that  I research the incident and write  the story myself;  I had never written a railroad  story before (mainly because I  know very little about trains)  but the long ago accident that  Hubert had cited, sparked my  imagination. One aspect of the  event that particularly struck me  was the fact that a group _of  hapless hoboes riding die top of  the train, were also carried to  their doom. I resolved to track  the facts of the matter down,  mull them over and try to craft  them into a decent yarn.  I enlisted Yvonne's help and  we did a bit of preliminary  research. It proved quite fiiiit-*  less. There was no record of any.  such train wreck on the Kettle.  Valley Line during the period  Hubert had alluded to. Hubert  Evans   was   a   scrupulously  honest man and! was certainhe.  wouldn't have given me a bum  steer. We detenimned%> se|||fi|  further.

He  demonstrates instruments from  his exotic collection of more  than 130.  For each performance, Randy selects 20 to 30, perhaps a six  foot tall mouth organ from the  hill tribes of Thailand, or end  blown tubes longer than a man  from the Australian outback,  ancient rattles from the Canadian Arctic, 'singing' wine  glasses from Victorian England.  Some are rare antiques, others,  inventions of our computer age.  Choosing his performance instruments not only for their unique appearances, but also for  their dymanic sound quality,  ' Randy carries the audience  through a full range of musical  discovery.  Performance is at the Arts  Centre in Sechelt, Saturday,  December 6 at 8 p.m. Admission is $5, children $2.50.  Tickets are available at the  Hunter Gallery in Gibsons,  Seaview Market in Roberts  Creek, and the Bookstore and  the Arts Centre in Sechelt.  files? It was a real puzzler.  When construction began on  the Coquihalla Highway along  the old rail route, I was reminded again of the story. Then a  book called McCulloch's  Wonder was published and the  mists cleared at last.  McCulloch's Wonder is the  history of the Kettle Valley  Railroad. Written by former  CPR engineer and dedicated  train buff, Barrie Sanford, it  tells the story of the Line that  was pushed against all odds  through some incredibly difficult terrain. While much of  the book is given over to the  convoluted political machinations that preceded the actual  construction of the line in 1915,  one lively chapter is devoted to  the men who ran the trains. This  chapter also contains a brief but  graphic account of the accident  (worst in the Line's annals) that  had eluded me for so many  years.  I had always mistakenly  assumed that the calamity had  occurred either during or just  before, the Depression. It had  actually taken place some years  before that - on Labour Day,  September 5, ,1926, to be exact.  Sanford V account also clarified  the business of the hoboes  riding the top of the cars. In  reality (and much more poignantly) they were schoolboys,  returning from a summer of  fruit picking in the interior.  Now I had the whole business  pinpointed at last, I determined  to thoroughly research what has  become known as 'The Jessica  Wreck' and do my own in-  depth version of the story. Accordingly, I hit the microfilm at  the Vancouver Public Library.  This time, I struck pay-dirt right  away. The accident had made  the front pages of both the Sun  and the Province. Oddly the  Sun confined itself to this initial  report. The Province, however,  had several follow-up pieces, in-  cluding names and photographs  . off three of the missing boys.  ,������y These newspaper pieces; con-  l^ltiai^ed a number of ,f��Qts ithat  % Barrie Sanford had n��$Ie_A0_ fo  mention. I seemed to have hiy  fopt in the door at last.  '(While at the Library, I also  unearthed a narrative poem  called The Coquihalla Wreck,  written.by a Summerland resident in 1932. The poem was accurate enough as it went but,  essentially, it just scratched the  surface and was marred by windy bombast to boot.)  Working from the newspaper  articles and Sanford's account  of the wreck, I hacked out a  preliminary draft. It fell short in  several areas. There were too  many unanswered questions. I  needed more data, particularly  the inquest reports.

If life were a football game,  Sagittarians would be the best  running backs in the league.  You can't even catch them, let  alone tackle them.

Explorers and ground breakers, you lead the rest of us into  new frontiers. But your impulsiveness can lead to both  your success and your downfall.  If you get a good business idea  you can take off with it and  make it a reality while other,  more mundane types, are still  trying to set up a feasibility  study.  On the other hand, the phrase  "married in haste, repented at  leisure" was coined for  Sagittarians. You have a real  knack of getting involved in  relationships (not necessarily  marriage) that make you unhappy.  Often the issues arise around  restrictions. You don't have a  lot of patience with details like  schedules, finishing one thing  before you start another, other  people's demands.  Unfortunately, a grounded  Sagittarian is a miserable person. Some compromise has to  be found between your need to  maker  Centre  feel personal freedom and your  partner's needs for consideration. ';.;,'. y.;...  Those issues will be corning  up a lot iri the next year - individual freedorri versus societal  responsibilities. The best words  of advice I can give you come  from Polonius, in Shakespeare's  Hamlet, who was talking to his  Sagittarian type 'son. "This  above all: to thine ownself be  true, and it must follow, as the  night the day, thou canst not  then be false to any man."  Gillian    Lowndes    was  dedicated to excellence and innovation in dance. She worked  as a volunteer to support all the  arts disciplines as a member of  /the Arts Council's Board of  -Directors  until  her  death  in  ,1981.  Sculptor Jim Krieger of  Roberts Creek was presented  with the award given in her  name at the November 27 Arts  Council's   Directors   meeting.  .;.. This cash award is presented an-  , nually to a local artist who is  committed to excellence in any  _, area of the arts.  > Through the generosity of the  :Lowndes family, our local artists like Jim Krieger are en-  . couraged to persevere in their  chosen field. Jiiri Krieger works .  almost full time at his art. He  began working in stone before  y he moved to the Sunshine Coast  ���in 1979. His works in recent  ������'.. years   have   been   mainly   in  y metal.   He has  his  own arc  welding   equipment   at   his  studio.  '���.;>��� While mythical and archetypal forms find expression  in Jim's onyx and marble im-  ��� ages his metal sculptures are  more daring and whimsical.  "The public finds the metal  work a little harder to unders  tand," says Krieger. "They  don't have the same visual  vocabulary or the artistic tradition to fall back on that they  have in the case of stone  sculpture."  Krieger looks forward tb being able to create really large  pieces.  "The pieces I'm doing now  are almost maquettes," he says.  Although Jim has sold a  nuriiber of pieces in the past  year, he feels that sculpture will  . never,'catch on' in B.C. until  the governments implement a  policy   such   as   exists   in  , Washington State where one per  cent of building costs are assigned to custom art works, according to Krieger.  Jim Krieger sells his work  mainly through interior  designers and landscape architects. He has exhibited in a  number of Vancouver, Victoria  and Washtington State shows as  well as at the Arts Centre in  Sechelt.  Jim   says,   "The   Lowndes  award couldn't have come at a  better time for me. It can be  j very discouraging working as a  full time artist." .

(���ar-.  ^m%K__^;%m_-%^^  Fourteen years ago George and Georgia Giannakos  established the Omega Restaurant in Gibsons Landing.  This family business, now operated by son Tarry, is  known both on and off the Coast for good food and pleasant surroundings.  My wife and I with grandaughter and an old family  friend as guests chose to celebrate two birthdays last week  at the Omega. After a few minutes to exchange news of  mutual interest we turned our attention to the menu.  When the waitress asked if we would like appetizers I  did not hesitate to order Kalamari. The others were too involved in chosing from the list of entrees.  My wife decided to order the barbecued chicken with  'Omega' potatoes and would share a small piece of our  grandaughter's combination pizza which was on special  for the month of November, large for the price of  medium.  Our friend who is a meat and potato fan from a long  way back chose the New York steak with potato, the  special of the day, with the clam chowder as soup or salad  option. ���  While all this was going on I focused my attention on  the seafood section and finally decided to order the trout.  Shortly after my Kalamari with Tzatziki arrived; a large  platter of tasty Greek style squid with a tangy dipping  sauce.  It was a festive occasion and Chef Steve turned out  delicious food to suit the various tastes of our little party.  The pizza was more than our teenager could eat, my wife  declared the chicken tender and delicious. Our friend enjoyed his medium rare steak and my trout was just right.  The Giannakos family support their community. Why  don't you drop in to the Omega for a friendly visit and  treat yourself to a great meal at the same time?  ^_Bf  Average meal prices quoted  do not include liquor  MC - Mastercard V - Visa AE - American Express  NIGHT ON THE TOWN  Bonniebrook Lodge- Gower Point,  .one  block  right  from  the corner of  Chaster   and   Gower   Point   Roads.

The biggie for the whole year  is the Arts and Crafts Christmas  sale at 11 a.m. on Saturday,  December 6. That's at the  Madeira Park Community  Hall.  All tables selling crafts have  been taken, plus extras set up in  the spare room. Don't miss it.  The annual general meeting  was also held. Yes, two  meetings in one evening. There  wasn't much time wasted in chit  chat or having to con someone  to volunteer. The old reliables  held their positions: Iris Grif-  .fith, president; Vi Tyner and  Peg Riley filling in for Iris when  she's out fishing the high seas;;  with husband Billy in theirf  seiner, the Tzoonie River.     ,  Then there's treasurer Rose  'Mueller and secretary Marilyn  Stone to keep up the reputation  ,of old reliables.  These few women are the  keepers of ,the paperwork but  there are many more dedicated  workers that are ever there,  some working out front, for example, the Bargain Barn  workers and Showcase workers,  but many work quietly in the  background and in the kitchen.

Chairman, The B.C. Finfish  Aquaculture Inquiry.  Dear Sir:  Thank you for this opportunity to express our opinion  regarding finfish aquaculture in  our foreshore waters.  As citizens of Canada and  residents of B.C. we consider  ourselves joint owners of this  foreshore. During the last couple of years a commercial activity known as fish farming has  .spread like wild fire in some  areas of the B.C. coast, particularly on the Sunshine Coast.  When we/hear the term farming,'."most;'of  us   imagine  a  .diverse range of activity involving tending crops and animals.  The term fish farming is mispleading because what- is taking  ' place   on   our   foreshore   is  basically   the   operation   of  animal feed lots, with the waste  going directly into the foreshore  waters.  We are opposed to this activity. It is without doubt that the  foreshore, the transition area  between land and ocean, plays a  key role in the ecology. It is  .home to a complex community  I of life, including a large variety  of plants,  fish,  seals, otters,  / herons and many other species  J of   birds,   land   and   aquatic  ; animals.  .; The foreshore is a tremen-  ; doiis economic resource in its  ; natural state. Sports fishing at-  ; tracts thousands of local and  '..visiting anglers. The easily ac  cessible public foreshore with its  clean water is the main reason  many people chose the coast for  their permanent or vacation  residence. A shealthy foreshore  is essential also to the life cycle  of the native salmon species.  The B.C. commercial fishery  produced 90,000 tons of fish in  1985 and employed thousands  Fish farming, or the raising  of fish in feeding pens, is a  threat to the public foreshore  and to the natural life in it.  Already, hundreds of hectares'  of public foreshore have been  given away to hold fish feeding  pens. These are owned by  private investors, many of  whom are from other countries.  The fish in the pens are totally  dependent on manufactured  feed. This feed is medicated to  combat the high mortality rate  due to disease. The waste produced by these thousands of  fish goes directly into the surrounding waters. Adequate  studies on the environmental  impact of this waste have not  been done.  John Brookbank, a retired  biologist, said in a conversation  with the Coast News that fish  farm companies do not want to  see full environmental studies  done, and have backed out of  proposed projects if it looked  like they might have to submit  to a study. Brookbank also said  that in Japan Red Tides "just  bloom around the fish pens".  It is very unusual for red tides  to occur in the winter time but  right now we are having a red  tide in Sechelt Inlet. It so hap-  . V;  Let's show concern  ' Editor:  '������������������ Recently, a 13 year old resident of the Coast was in an unfortunate explosion at the  Sechelt dump which left him  with severe burns to the face  ���Jand legs.

Brookbank is  also worried about the impact  of antibiotics and other agents  on the environment and the inevitable destruction of predators like otters, seals and birds  by the fish cultivators. He was  told by B.C. Ministry of Environment biologists that they  were dealing out permits conditionally now and would worry  about environmental effects  later.  We don't think this is good  enough. We would like to see a  clean, healthy and public  foreshore, not just for our sakes  but for the sake of future generations and the natural environment.  We are conviced that fish  farms will do irreparable damage to the natural foreshore.  We ask that at the very least,  this moratorium be extended  until thorough, long-term  studies have been completed on  the   impact   of   existing   fish  farms.

Jaeger will attempt to con-  $��tinue his winning streak this  |�� weekend  wuimng  in   Medicine  Hat,  Alberta.  J?  ���|f   Duffy, who was considerably  1. well tuned  following  a stint  helping Dale Walters prepare  for his recent shot for the Canadian Professional title, managed  to stay on his toes, stick and  move for three rounds to earn  a unanimous decision over  Sacremento's Mike Hodges, age  22. Hodges, the 1985 California  State Champion was the victim  of Duffy's elusive lateral movement and sizzling uppercuts.  Other B.C. victors were Mike  O'Connel, 132 Langley; Manny  Sobrel, 147 Astoria; Russ  Lyons, 165 Nanaimo; Allan  Brown, 125 Nanaimo; and, Ron  Paskb, 156 Vancouver.  Duffy, Jaeger and newcomer  Chris Strom will all see action  on December 6 in Squamish.  Jaeger has accepted a challenge  from Astoria's Wayne Cap-  polleni, while Duffy meets the  miich touted Mike O'Connel.  O'Connel, the 1984 Vancouver Golden Boy, lost a  disputed split decision to Dale  Walters in the pre-Olympic  trials in 1984 and consequently  retired. The 26 year old O'Connel has returned this year to  score three consecutive knock  out victories. This main event  attraction could prove to be one  of Duffy's most difficult contests.  .  iy  .  has arrive  C^5t��giog P  d,  otted  Cyclamen  Mums  Christmas Cactus  POINSETTIASfrom*275  Live Christmas Trees  5 ft. *2995 6 ft. *3495  CUT CHRISTMAS TREES HERE ON THURSDAY  885-2760  OPEN 7 DAYS A WEEK 9:30 - 5  Year  End  CLEARANCE  "SOPHIA" 100% Dupont Nylon        'AA��*L  Sculptured Scotchgard & Ultra-Fresh treated. ^T4  Reg. $21.95 sq.yd.

A throw-in is awarded when  the whole of the ball passes over  a touch line (side line) either on  the ground or in the air. The  throw-in is awarded to a player  of the team opposite to that of  the player who last touched the  ball.  The thrower at the moment  of delivering the ball must face  the field of play and part of  each foot shall be either on the  touch line or on the ground outside the touch line. The thrower  uses both hands and delivers the  ball from behind' and over his  head. The thrower cannot touch  the ball until it has been touched  by another player.  You cannot score a goal  directly from a throw-in and  you cannot be off-side if you  receive the ball directly from a  throw-in. If the thrower plays  the ball after it is thrown in and  before anyone else plays it an  indirect kick is awarded to the  opposing team.  Coaches please note: there  will be a coach's meeting Thursday, December 4. We will be  talking about the tournament at  the end of the season.  8 & 9 YEAR OLDS  WLTP  Shop Easy 4 2 19  Roberts Creek Legion 0 6 11  Elphinstone Recreation       2 3 2 6  Gibsons Building Supplies   6 1 0 12  10 & 11 YEAR OLDS  WL T P  Sechelt Lions 3 2 0 6  Frank Hoehne 4 2 0 8  John Nickerson 5 1 0 10  Gerry Gaudry 14 0 2  Elphinstone Recreation       15 0 2  GIBSONS  LANES  886-2086  TIDE TABLES  JBl\  Wed.

Coast News, December 1,1986  E^ook corne  by Montague Royal   e   j^nyone who happened to see  thf excellent film Bound For  G|_ry, will have some knowledge of the fascinating  ch|racter whose full name was  j)odrow Wilson Guthrie. The  mbvie was fine and quite accurate as far as it went, but it  only covered a few years in the  |que singer/songwriter's life.  jody Guthrie - A life by Joe  gin (Knopf), tells the whole  Jlandish   (and   untimateiy  gic) story.  lein has obviously done his  Imework in researching the  athrie legend. He employs a  ^se, folksy narrative style that  isfcerfectly suited to the subject  rrjjfttter.  SWoody Guthrie remains a  tcf ally unique figure in the annuls of American music. A  sifall, feisty, prodigious  tafented man, he was born July  If, 1912 in Okemah, Oklahoma. Tragedy dogged his  childhood. His mother developed Huntington's disease and  gradually became insane. His  father, originally affluent, lost  all. his money through political  intrigues and was reduced to  p|uperhood. Woody grew up a  rebellious misfit who hated  sdhool. An inveterate reader, he  largely educated himself.  �� Guthrie married at 20 and  fathered three children but his  njcaverick ways ill-suited him for  a|y sort of steady work. He ek-  e��l out a spotty living sign pain-  tifig and drawing cartoons. He  so learned to play the guitar,  farmed   a   band   and   began  writing songs. When the dust  storms struck Oklahoma,  Guthrie, in company with thousands of other destitute Okies,  hit the boxcar route to California, leaving his wife and  children with her relatives.  For most of the desperate  Okies, California was hardly  the Promised Land they had expected. They were resented,  reviled and exploited. Guthrie  was one of the lucky few. He  teamed up with his cousin, Jack  and landed a job on a small  radio station, performing  cowboy songs and folk ballads.  Guthrie became a left wing  political activist during this  period. He made several attempts to reunite with his family  but his creative ambitions  always intervened. Guthrie's  real career began when he went  to New York and met such  pivotal figures of the early folk  scene as Pete Seeger, Burl Ives,  Cisco Huston, Leadbelly and  the vastly influential compiler  of folk material, Alan Lomax.  He also met Marjorie Mazia  who, after a long courtship,  complicated by the fact that  both were married to other peo-  ; pie, would become his second  wife.  Guthrie made many breakthroughs in New York. He  recorded his first album,  Dustbowl Ballads and, with  Seeger, formed the influential  Almanac Singers, who specialized in work ballads and union  songs. Guthrie also debuted on  national radio and appeared on  Broadway. Constantly, he  wrote songs and even authored  a  book,   Bound  For  Glory.  Ultimately, he and Marjorie  were married and produced  four off-spring, one of whom  would become singer, Arlo  Guthrie.  World War II caused a hiatus  in Guthrie's career. He did two  stints in the Merchant Marine  with Cisco Huston and was inexplicably drafted into the Army in 1945, possibly because of  his leftist leanings.  Guthrie went on to write  more songs and make several  more records but he was never  to attain the sort of mega-fame  that his talents deserved. He  was to remain a cult fugure,  beloved among folk-lorists but  relatively little known to the  public at large. His best songs  such as So Long, It's Been  Good To Know You and This  Land is Your Land were destined to become standards - but  always in versions by other performers. Guthrie himself was  fated to remain obscure.  Guthrie's final years were  clouded with tragedy. His  mother had left him the grim  legacy of Huntington's disease  and it began to gnaw away in  him, gradually robbing him of  his faculties.  Woody Guthrie was confined  to a hospital bed during his last  days. Here he was visited by a  succession of friends, old and  new, including an aspiring  young folk singer named Bob  Dylan. Dylan's early work owes '  much to Guthrie's influence.  This "is a finely-written,  engrossing book, well worth a  perusal.  Is your house losing  energy dollars?  Every year thousands of Canadian homes lose energy dollars  through air leakage, poor insulation and inefficient heating  systems.  That's why most homes  should  have  a thorough  energy  Here are some hints on how to  investigate these major energy  components and improve the energy efficiency of your house.  Air leakage control  Air leakage control is one of  the most cost-effective energy conservation measures available;  homeowners often recover their  costs quickly through lower energy  bills. So begin your energy checkup by searching for air leaks.  The colder and windier the  day, the better. Cold air drafts may  be coming in at major problem areas, such as around doors and win  dows, and less severe leaks can be  easily located by pulling a tissue or '������  smoke pencil along walls and ceil- ���  ing and noting where the tissue or  smoke flutters.  One or more of three different  methods may be required to seal  the leaks.  ��� Caulking should be used to seal ;  fixed joints ��� those that are not ;  intended to move in relation to  each other.  ��� Weatherstripping is used for <  joints that move in relation toy  each other, such as the moving [  parts of windows and doors.  ��� Air-vapour barriers prevent air ;  and vapour from passing from ;  the living space into the building ���  structure and insulation. They.'  are usually installed on the warm 1  side of the insulation and should ..j  be completely sealed. One mate-;!  rial commonly used for air- ���  vapour barriers is 0.15 mm polyethylene sheets.  Insulation ::_  Next, give some thought to insulation. Take note of what areas iri /  your house are insulated, what kind ���  of insulation is installed and to  what depth. If the insulation work  was done by a contractor most of;  this information should be written.;  down, either in the contract or in* >  the contractor's records.   Failing ���  this, you'll have to do some scout-: -  ing to get the facts. ,y  You should ensure that all insulation is in good shape (not wet  or compacted) and that an effective  air-vapour barrier is in place. You  should also determine if your insu- :;  lation is up to current standards.   ;  Specific recommended thermal re- '���-'���  sistance values vary according to'a;  region's climate, but the general-  ranges are as follows: '-���"���l  RSI          'r*-������������'"  walls -   2.8 to 4.5   16 to 2(3'  _1  4-  Finally.  w  Energy efficiency  is a guaranteed  cure for those  chills you get with  your electricity or gas  bill, for those shivers you  feel when you hear about the cost  of heating oil, and for those coughing  fits you seem to develop every  time you see how much you pay  for hot water.  Energy efficiency, in fact,  cures almost every cold-related  ill you and your house  suffer from.  Next time you are  building or renovating a  home, remember, even with  lower energy prices, energy  efficiency is an excellent investment:  Energy efficiency will improve the  comfort of your home, as well  as be financially rewarding.  So don't suffer needlessly  from the effects of the  common cold. Proper  home energy management and good energy  habits will cure it  every time!  It's called energy efficiency.  i*  Energy, Mines and  Resources Canada  Hon. Marcel Masse,  Minister  knergie, Mines et  Ressources Canada  LHon.

Remember that there is a  diminishing return for each additional unit of thermal resistance  added, so it makes sense to concentrate initai efforts where little insulation exists.  The heating system  Now turn your attention to the  , heating system. Is the system in  good shape? Has it recently received major servicing or upgrading? Does it deliver heat to all  parts of the house evenly?  If you answered no to these  questions ��� or if you aren't sure  what the answers are ��� it may be  worthwhile to call in a heating contractor. This person can serve  several functions, from cleaning  the heating system and giving it a  tune-up to recommending upgrading or replacement. In any  case, have the heating system  serviced annually to ensure that it  runs as safely and efficiently as  possible.  When renovating, think energy efficiency  Renovation can do more than  change the physical appearance of  your house - it can improve the  energy efficiency as well. By  working energy efficiency into  your plans, the money you save on  fuel bills will help pay for the renovation work. Better yet, the energy  savings will continue year after  year.  Many energy conservation activities that normally would be extremely difficult or impossible can  be undertaken during renovation.  For example, effective sealing of  the sill plate (a major source of air  leakage) in a finished basement  might involve removing the wall  covering and insulation. This work  can be accomplished more conveniently when you are actually  finishing the basement.  A common reason for doing  renovation work is to make the  home more comfortable. Energy  conservation can help. An energy-  efficient home has fewer drafts and  cold walls and is warmer in winter  and cooler in summer than a poorly  insulated, leaky home.  Energy efficiency can usually  be incorporated into renovation  plans at little extra cost. If you're  hiring a contractor, ask to have  energy improvements worked into  the renovation proposal.  Here are some tips that will  help you build energy efficiency  into all of your home renovation  plans.  To start at the top: if you plan  to turn attic space into an extra  room, you can make it more comfortable by sealing all air leaks, installing generous amounts of insulation and adding an air-vapour  barrier on the warm side of the insulation. If space is at a premium,  board stock insulation covered by  a suitable fire-resistant material  (such as gypsum board) might be  the best solution. Installing windows on the south-facing wall and  skylights in the ceiling can both  brighten the room and provide passive solar heat (be sure the windows and skylights are caulked and  weatherstripped).  If you are working on the ventilation system in an unfinished  attic, check the existing insulation  and air sealing; it may be worthwhile to upgrade both. Vents  should be unobstructed by debris to  improve air flow and help prevent  condensation problems and ice  buildup. If insulation is blocking  the vents, create a clear air passage  by installing baffles. Ensure that  the joints around new vents are  completely sealed and that the  vents are louvred or installed to  keep rain or snow from entering the  attic.  When decorating existing upstairs rooms, consider using oil-  based paint or vinyl wallpaper.  These materials can help prevent  water vapour from passing into the  wall cavity or attic, where it can  decrease the effectiveness of the  insulation.  Double-glazed windows and  insulated doors can significantly  reduce conductive heat loss. Be  sure that all doors and windows,  old or new, are thoroughly caulked  and weatherstripped. CaUlk around  doors and window trim with a  paintable caulking before painting.  If you replace a baseboard, caulk  the joint between the wall and floor  before installing the new material.  Caulking should always be applied  from inside the house.  Fireplaces contribute to the  appearance of a room but they are  inherently inefficient. When making repairs to an existing fireplace,  be sure the damper seals tightly or  consider installing a chimney cap  damper.  Supplementing the combustion air available to a fireplace can  also reduce the amount of heated  air drawn up the chimney. Fresh-  air intake ducts bring combustion  air from the outdoors to the front  LTD.

The ducts should  be equipped with a tight-fitting  damper that can be closed when the  fireplace is not in use.  Glass doors can be an attractive addition to a fireplace and can  help prevent house air from being  lost up the chimney when the fire is  dying down or when the fireplace is  not in use. If you're installing a  new fireplace, ensure it is energy  efficient.  Major kitchen renovations,  such as the addition of new cupboards, also provide an opportunity  for air sealing or insulation work.  If you're adding a south-facing  breakfast nook, consider incorporating energy-efficient windows in  the design for a pleasant'solariumlike' effect that takes advantage of  passive solar heat.  In the bathroom, do as much  caulking and insulation work as  possible (insulate on the cold side  of the water pipes to, prevent freez-...  ing). Many caulking materials are  moisture resistant, making them  ideal for the bathroom. Also, con  sider installing a flow restrictor  showerhead to reduce the amount  of hot water used.  Before finishing the basement  ceiling, tape all joints in the hot air  ducts (you might even consider insulating long runs of duct work).  This will help get more of the heat  from the furnace to its destination.  Caulk all cracks in the exterior masonry walls, install insulation and  add an air-vapour barrier.  Energy efficiency can even be  incorporated into renovation work  on the outside of your house. For  example, if you have gone to the  trouble of excavating to repair  leaky foundation walls, it makes  sense to insulate these walls from  the outside before backfilling. In  any case, make sure the wall is well  dampproofed.  Before re-siding your house,  add insulation from the outside or  use insulating siding. And if you're  adding a pool or buying a new heating system for an existing pool,  consider buying a solar water-  heating system.  Oddvin Vedo, now of Master Mariner of Canada __._..,  himself to the inquiry into fish fanning last week as the 'single individual most responsible for making it all happen'. ���Ray Smith photo  Fish farming pro and con  Local fishermen and fish  farmers alternately presented  conflicting points of view and  facts to the Gillespie inquiry last  Wednesday.  Harry Russell, a commercial  salmon troller for 30 years, told  chairman David Gillespie that  he was "upset that the provincial government has been promoting fish farming while we  still have a viable commercial  fishing industry." This situation  is different, he pointed out,  than in Norway where the  aquaculture industry was  developed as a response to  declining commercial fishing.  He disputed the claim by  aquaculturists that they were  not competing for the same  markets. He quoted dropping  prices for red spring salmon  from $3.75 per pound in 1984 to  $2.35 per pound in 1986.  However, in a presentation  made later in the day, Syd Heal,  president of the Sunshine Coast  Aquaculture Association, maintained that aquaculture is  resulting in an increased market  demand.  "The wholesaler and retailer  of fish appreciates having a 12  month, rather than a seasonal,  supply and this in turn en  courages the shopper to regard  fish as a much more staple part  of diet."  Oddvin Vedo, in his brief on  behalf of Master Marine  fcanada, introduced himself as  "the single most responsible  person for bringing the industry  to B.C." He supported Mr.  Heal's claims and said that  aquaculture also upgrades  prices paid for wild stock as well  as pen-raised fish.  Jim Cameron, a fisherman  from Pender Harbour, spoke  on the issue of fish farms going  into traditional gill net areas,  and warned that a confrontation was inevitable if the situation continued.  Russell Cameron, a third  UFAWU member, spoke of the  threat to the tourist industry as  well as the 70 or more commercial fishermen in the Pender  Harbour area due to "the explosion of salmon farms in the  area".  He asked the commission,  "What's going to happen as  farms go bankrupt leaving unpaid bills? The tourist industry  won't be there anymore. And  don't look to fishermen to help  the local economy. We'll be out  of business by then."  ^j^ft^B��^____ta___^lfc*__&***M_k*____^_tf_____*___*^_ta___---___fl  SUNSHINE ENERGY SERVICES INC.

The Business and Professional Women's Club is for all  working women of various occupations, viewpoints and ages,  and is a non-sectarian and nonpartisan member organization  within the Canadian Federation  of Business and Professional  Women's Clubs. The club promotes the interests of women  and   works   towards   the   im-  1 -,  provement of the status of  women in business, industry  and the professions.  Some of the main purposes  of the local club are to improve  the economic employment and  social conditions of women; to  encourage and assist women to  acquire education and training;  to stimulate interest in Federal,  Provincial and Municipal affairs; and to encourage women  to participate in the business of  government at all levels, "if  they wish".  Club members are involved in  workshops, seminars and  educational programs for advancement in careers, leadership  and self-improvement; through  studies of legislation as it affects  women, and the presentation of  briefs to governments on matters of current concern; studies to  eliminate discrimination against  women in employment, educa  tion and economic welfare; and  participation in monthly club  meetings, annual provincial  conferences, bi-ennial national  conventions and tri-ennial international congresses.  Business and Professional  Women's Clubs are operating in  Vancouver, North Vancouver,  Coquitlam, New Westminster,  Burnaby, Richmond, Surrey,  Sechelt, White Rock, Mission,  Abbotsford and throughout  B.C.  An organizational meeting  will be held in the Marine Room  in Gibsons^ Thursday,  December 4, at 7 p.m. to form a  club in Gibsons.
