 Early in 1988  More elk come  to Coast  by Rose Nicholson  Amazingly no-one was injured when the largest tree within range  blew down in the middle of the night, crushing the hallway and collapsing the roof and floor of Gail Sangster's half of this duplex  owned by Roberts Creek resident Walter Sturdy. The tree landed  directly in-between her daughter Jessica's room and Kerry Baker's  East Egmont worst hit  son Darryl's room, where both were sleeping. The Sangsters and  the Bakers were very pleased with the prompt action by the Roberts  Creek Volunteer Fire Department who responded to the call within  minutes of the mishap. Both families are how looking for new  homes. ���Joel Johnstone photo  Storm batters the Coast  There will be another elk  transplant on the Sunshine  Coast early in 1988. Conservation Officer Jamie Stephen  reports that Western Pulp Ltd.,  owners of the mill at Wood-  fibre, have agreed to be the  sponsors of the project.  Walt Manion of Western  Pulp said that the plan is to bring 18 or 19 Roosevelt Elk from  Vancouver Island. The project  will be under the direction of  Stephen and wildlife biologist  Bob Forbes of the Ministry of  Fish and Wildlife.  There have been two other  elk transplants on the coast.  One was in 1938 and the most  recent was in February of this  year. The animals that were  brought over this spring are doing very well. There was only  one loss in the herd of seven.  The one fatality was a cow that  died of transit shock. Two  calves were born thisseason, so  the herd is up to eight and thriving.  "This is excellent", said  Stephen, "wild animals do not  always travel that well."  Stephen, speaking of another  aspect of the project, expressed  great concern over the disappearance of the instructional  sign about the elk. The large  sign, located near Ruby Lake,  gave a history of the project and  alerted motorists and hunters to  the presence of the animals. It  also warned, hunters of the  possibility of mistaking an immature elk for a large deer.  Stephen said that there is no  money available to replace the  sign. It wasprovided by funding  from the Habitat Conservation  Fund. This fund is financed by  the provincial government by  way of a surcharge on hunting  and fishing licences, so, in effect  it was paid for by fishermen and  hunters.  Stephen also pointed out that  it is an offence under the  Wildlife Act to remove or deface such signs.  There may be a reward of up  to $2000 for information  leading to the conviction of the  persons responsible for the  removal of the sign. This  reward is provided by a private  group, the B.Ci Wildlife  Federation, which is an  amalgamation of the Rod and  Gun Clubs of the province.  Stephen stressed that any information he receives will be  held in confidence.  He also expressed appreciation to the local Department of  Highways and John Williams  for the erection of four metal  "Elk Hunting Prohibited" signs  on logging roads in the Pender  Harbour area.  by Teri Dawe  Winds and wavesbatteredthe  - 'Coast last -week '...as-' two successive storms wreaked havoc  upon power lines. While the  Gibsons to Port Mellon area  was least affected with only occassional spots of disrupted service, Keats Island, Gambier  Island and the east Egmont area  went without power for several  days. The first reports came in  from the islands early on Monday, but power wasn't restored  until Thursday.  In Roberts Creek, a falling  tree went through the roof of a  duplex and in Wilson Creek  another flattened two cars.  Throughout the entire area  lesser damage was done.  In Pender Harbour, a nearly  completed storage and office  building collapsed, crushing six  or more golf carts. Most stores  and gas stations closed during  the power outages and the reactions of the owners varied considerably.  ; Jack Bathgate, of Bathgate's  Store in Egmont commented,  "When you've been here this  long, you don't get excited  about power failures. I can  remember when we used to  plow the roads in the winter.  Someone came by with a  generator so we could keep the  ice cream from melting."  ���: Rob Metcalfe, manager of  IGA in Madeira Park, was annoyed about the interruption of  service.- He told the Coast  News, "This is the second time  trees have, knocked out- the  power line because of logging  too close to.the road. I stand to:  ' lose" $1^,000 .worth of frozen-  food and I blame the forest service for this."  Dairyland trucks picked up  the milk products from IGA  and fortunately power was  restored just in time to save his  frozen products.  In Wilson Creek, Laurel and  Russel Costyk had both their  cars crushed by large trees,  creating a chain of events that  toppled poles out to the  highway.  "It was quite dangerous,"  said Russel Costyk. "We;  wanted to get out of there, so  .we; phoned the'RCMP tC&H"  them the power lines were down  in the black of night. We reached a detachment off the Coast  and they didn't respond, even  though the danger was obvious.  Having your phone call  transferred automatically off  the Coast at night seems a very  poor idea."  B.C. Hydro District Manager  Wayne Turner told the Coast  News that he had brought in  crews from Burnaby and Surrey  as well as using extra personnel  '' from the Sunshine Coast itself,  .;, hg^;still power was not fully  K^eltBred 40i; some part$}' of. the-  Coasthmtil Thursday night.  Environment Canada's  Climate Services clocked the  wind speed at Merry Island on-  Monday at up to 80 km per  hour. However Superintendent  Earl Cpatta explained that this  was a sustained wind force for  one minute or more. Probable  gusts could be as much as 50  percent stronger, which would  have been 120 km winds in  various places.  Concessions on wharf  by Joel Johnstone  Regular wharf users may be  winning a few concessions from  the recent clamp-down on  regulations at the Gibsons  wharf.  Alderman Gerry Dixon,  chairman of the wharf committee struck last week, told Gibsons Council the committee  "had a couple of meetings and  have had a lot of cooperation  from fishermen and tugboat  operators. We have wharf  manager, Larry Reardon, applying for some additional  parking on the wharf."  Reardon is applying to Canadian Coast Guard Regional  Manager Dave Barratt, for per  mission to allow eight day-  parking spaces on the wharfhead over the winter months.  Come spring, the additional  spaces would be discontinued.  Dixon said "It looks like it  should be acceptable to Barratt  and the Coast. Guard," but  noted there would still be no  parking allowed in the evenings  past nine.  "It won't solve the situation  but it will go a long way to  alleviate it," Dixon said.  Vernon presents  Centennial Chorals  cert this^eiair, arid yes,' Lyn Vernon has feturh^lS^ie coast  just in time to be its guest musical director and conductor.  The versatile group 'Emerald' will also be performing at  this concert, and if you have never heard them, you are in for  a treat. Rumour has it that they will soon be making a recording. The piano accompanist will be Heather Lydall, a  newcomer to the Coast.  As musical tastes vary, so the singers have varied their program. Even the most highbrow will get a chuckle out of  'Jingle Bells through the Ages', as well as enlightenment from  Bach's dramatically poignant Christmas chorales.  This year, the concert will be held on Saturday, December  19 at 8 pm at St. Hilda's United Church in Sechelt (this new  church has excellent accoustics) to enable more people to attend. Consequently, entry is by donation and tickets cannot  be presold.  This exceptionally diverse concert promises to be full of  good surprises just in tune for Christmas.  Counterattack  Drivers are reminded that the Christmas Counterattack  road checks will begin this week. Police will be setting up  road blocks around the Sunshine Coast. So if you're going to  celebrate the holiday season, don't drive if you've been drinking.  Health inspectors  Formal recognition was given to the appointments of  Coast-Garibaldi Health Unit Inspectors for the Sunshine  Coast at Gibsons Council last Tuesday.  Chief Public Health Inspector Barry A. Willoughby, local  Public Health Inspector James E. Brooks and Relief Public  Health Inspector Robert D. Weston will continue to serve as  the three unit members for the Sunshine Coast.  The Coast-Garibaldi Health Unit serves from' Pemberton  to Powell River.  Regionalization  v An open meeting on regionalization will be held at Greenecourt on Thursday, December 17 beginning at 9 am. Minister  pf State Elwood Veitch and parliamentary secretaries John  Jansen and Norm Jacobsen will be accompanied by Regional  Liaison officer, Sven Buemann, Regional Development Officer, David Richardson, and Ministerial Assistant Chris  MacNaughton as they meet with members of the public who  have questions or concerns about the new decentralization  program.  All submissions must be handed into the Sechelt government agents office in written form by December 10.  Pioneer Park was filled with the Christmas spirit last Friday when  the Gibsons  Landing Merchants  brought  Santa Claus in  to  ^SlTT  turn on the lights as the Roberts Creek Elementary School Choir  sang carols to an appreciative crowd of children and parents.  ���Joel Johnstone photo  #3&fc&��&  *$%p  W'VF: 2. Coast News, December 7,1987  to 'fee seized  The summit meeting between Gorbachev and Reagan  coming up could well be a turning point in the history of  mankind.  It is of crucial importance, however, that an agreement  to eliminate some of the fearsome nuclear weaponry that  jeopardizes all life on the planet be not only signed next  week, but speedily implemented thereafter.  We are aware of the voices being raised against the treaty in Washington, but it is important for the West to  realize that Gorbachev also has his critics. If the opportunity is not seized to move back from the nuclear brink  with this most flexible of Soviet leaders he could be  discredited and the opportunity lost.  The fact that both super powers have grave economic  difficulties is probably the chief reason for the agreement.  The sooner this treaty is implemented the sooner both  countries can begin to move away from crippling military  expenditures. Here is an opportunity which must be seized.  Stevens adds  insult to injury  That Sinclair Stevens is not alone in Canadian public life  in having apparently no grasp of what constitutes conflict  of interest may be a sad truth.  But the fact of the matter is that, once accused, he opted  for a very expensive inquiry outside of an investigation by  his peers in the House of Commons. It is also a fact that  his legal expenses have been picked up by the taxpayer.  It is adding insult to injury for Mr. Stevens to heap  scorn on the results of the form of inquiry that he chose  and which has cost the taxpayer hundreds of thousands of  dollars. The moral bankruptcy of this nation needs little  further illustration.  Are our ferries  the problem?  When our representatives have to go to Vancouver to  discuss our economic plans under the so-called decentralization scheme, we can understand it. There are, after  all, some 2,000,000 people in the Lower Mainland and,  with some 16,000, we are a small bump on a very large log.  That a meeting to discuss Sechelt gravel extraction is  also to be held in the nearby metropolis is another matter,  however. Do you think the representatives of the provincial government find our ferry system expensive and inconvenient?  5 YEARS AGO  The official dedication of a $7.6 million effluent outfall diffuser at Port Mellon was the culmination of a $12  million upgrading program to bring the effluent systems  into tune with the Waste Management Branch Regulations. The milestone project was completed under difficult technical and economic conditions, but Canfor  President Bill Hughes pointed out, "We have an obligation to protect the environment and we will continue to  fulfill the obligation.  10 YEARS AGO  Transcendental Meditation is on the verge of a major  breakthrough. The growing popularity of TM is seen this  week at Lord Jim's Lodge which will become the headquarters of an upcoming seminar on the subject.  15 YEARS AGO  For the first time in five years the SCRD board has  avoided an election. Three seats were open in areas B,  D and F, but in each case the nominee won the seat by  acclamation.  20 YEARS AGO  Money with which to construct the long awaited  bypass from the Langdale Ferry Terminal to the Sunshine Coast Highway behind Gibsons will be in this  year's provincial government budget. It is expected that  work on the bypass will begin early next spring.  25 YEARS AGO  Running a ragged two and a half mile course in  15:48:2, Jim Malyea, 16, of Gibsons, won the Sechelt  Legion Branch No. 140 Cross Country Run at Hackett  Park.  30 YEARS AGO  The question of a liquor outlet in or close to Sechelt  has been taken up by a member of the Board of Trade.  The question was tabled for further discussion.  35 YEARS AGO  Equipped with borrowed hip waders, Tony Gargrave,  MLA for Mackenzie riding, travelled from Port Mellon to  Gibsons over Port Mellon roadway on Monday morning  this week. Accompanying him on the one and three  quarter hour trip was Norman Christie, general foreman  for Maxwell Construction.  40 YEARS AGO  The Sechelt Board of Trade has telegraphed the provincial  Ministry of  Public Works,  requesting  an  immediate survey on a coastal road from Halfmoon Bay to.  the Sechelt-Pender Highway.

"Hello, Jake," I said. "How  have been and what's this  nonsense about people accusing  you of being dead!"  "Given the frequency of your  visits of late, it would appear  that it's a fat lot you care about  how I've been," said Jake,  answering my first question  first. Before I could interject  with apologies and sheepish explanations, the oldtimer went  irascibly on.  "Look," he said, "I didn't  ask for the publicity in the fil^  place. I realized, however, when  you took to writing up our con-  versations in the paper, at least  as much as you had the guts' to  report, it was only because your .  brains were drying up and you  needed all the help you could  get. It's a common predicament  in this country."  "True enough, Jake, but  what's all this got to do with  you being dead?"  "People have been phoning  me up and enquiring after my  health, some of them I haven't  heard from in years and who  would never dare to phone  unless they thought I was incapacitated.  "People stop me in the supermarket and express surprise at  seeing me. That .fellow Bert just  about fell on my neck when I  went into the bar for a ginger  ale the other day. Mind you,"  and here he chuckled, "I hadn't  been there five minutes before  he was slamming his fist on the  bar calling me names.  "All of this because you've  taken it into your head to  discard me. What's the matter,  are you getting afraid to print  anything controversial?"  "Not really," I started to say  but the oldtimer's snort of derision cut me off before I got any  further.  "Anyway, it's high time  somebody said something  pointed about the pathos of this  country."  "Go for it, Jake," I said and  settled back.  "You're being far too wishy-  washy on this free-trade issue.  What's going on here is a  travesty. Brian Baloney is trying  to give the country away and the  only thing liable to save us is  that the Americans may be too  stupid to take it.  ,"Don't forget the Tories  scooped the idea from the Mac-  donald report commissioned by  {he Liberals. Baloney was supposed to be passionately against  it until Macdonald's $800 a day  report came out. It's like they  didn't know what to do with the  country so they decided to give  it away.  "These guys stayed up all  night to meet an arbitrary and  artificial American deadline at  the beginning of October.  Meanwhile, they were just supposed to be writing it up. Now  they're staying up all night  negotiating again to meet  another American deadline.  The only thing that may save us  is the stupidity of the American  Congress.  "Then there is our provincial  scene. People are dying for lack  of hospital beds while the  government spends hundreds of  extra millions on a toll highway  nobody asked for built through  the worst snowfall mountains  on the continent in the dead of  winter.  "A fraction of the Coquihalla overrun would have  kept our hospitals functioning  and our teachers happy. Now  Bill Blundermouth is going to  sell off half our assets for yet  another quick fix solution and  you and others like you are too  mealy-mouthed to murmur a  genteel protest. You know what  our premier's motto should  be?"  "Tell me, Jake."  "Ready, fire, aim," said  Jake. "Listen, I've got better  things to do than spend my time  stiffening the backbone and  opening the eyes of the  pusillanimous media. You  know what I tell them in the  super-market when they're  suprised to see me alive and  well?"  "I tell 'em it's not me that's  dead. The whole damn country  has kicked the bucket. Jut appetites  walking   around   with  mush for brains.  "When was the last time  anybody in this country voted  for something instead of against  something? That's because you  have to have your thinking  equipment at least partially in  gear to vote for anything.  "I used to think there was  hope for you. I'm beginning to  doubt it. Drop by sometime if  there's a flicker of living intelligence left in you.  Goodbye."  "I'll try to do that, Jake," I  started to say, but he was gone.  On Growing Old  Be mth me, Beauty, for the fire is dying;  My dog and I are old, too old for roving.  Man, whose young passion sets the spindrift flying,  Is soon too lame to march, too cold for loving.  I take the book and gather to the fire,  Turning old yellow leaves; minute by minute  The clock ticks to my heart. A withered wire,  Moves a thin ghost of music in the spinet.  I cannot sail your seas, I cannot wander  Your cornland, nor your hill-land, nor your valleys  Ever again, nor share the battle yonder  Where the young knight the broken squadron rallies.  Only stay quiet while my mind remembers  The beauty of fire from the beauty of embers.  Beauty, have pity! for the strong have power,  The rich their wealth, the beautiful their grace,  Summer of man its sunlight and its flower.  Spring-time of man all April in a face.  Only, as in the jostling in the Strand,  Where the mob thrusts or loiters or is loud,  The beggar with the saucer in his hand  Asks only a penny from the passing crowdd,  So, from this glittering world with all its fashion,  Its fire, and play of men, its stir, its march,  Let me have wisdom, Beauty, wisdom and passion,  Bread to the soul, rain when the summers parch.  Give me but these, and though the darkness close  Even the night will blossom as the rose.  John Masefield  Maryanne's Viewpoint  Privatization no answer for alcohol  by Maryanne West  Some more thoughts about  privatization. I'm not, I hope,  and ideologue, shut into a  theory regardless of the changes  in society. Which means that  I'm not either pro or ante  privatization, per se. There are,  I believe, services which the  government should provide and  services which can be contracted  out.  But liquor stores are not one  of these! I think you can argue  that the distribution of alcoholic  beverages never should have  been government controlled,  but with our changing attitudes  toward alcohol, I don't think  this is the time to make such  changes. And also, of course,  because 'if it ain't broke, don't  fix it'!  If anyone is going to make a  profit from the sale of booze  then it better be the government, because it's government  to whom we're going to turn to  deal with the social problems inherent in the misuse of the drug.  It is as a drug, not a harmless  commodity, that society has  come to recognize alcohol. And  that its consumption causes  widespread problems in society;  most obviously in the home, in  the workplace and on the  highways. In all these cases the  taxpayer eventually carries the  burden. Take for example the  recent increase in ICBC insurance rates. True not all accidents are related to alcohol,  but as many as 40 percent.  If we turn liquor stores over  to the private sector, the tax will  still go to the government, but  the operator is going to want to  make a profit so the basic markup will presumably go to him  and will presumably increase  over time.  There has been pressure on  the government, I imagine, to  privatize liquor outlets because  people hope to get a wider  choice and variety of product. I  suspect that this too is one of  those illusions that we've come  to adopt in this private versus  public debate. But in both situations what will find a place on  the shelves is what will sell. The  private sector surely will be less  likely to bring in items for  which there is small demand as  there isn't any profit in what sits  on the shelf! As it is now, the  best selections will still be found  in the outlets in the cities rather  than in small communities.  So, you say, government  shouldn't be in business in the  first place. I'll buy that argument, with the proviso that  booze isn't just another commodity and for the aforementioned reasons. But let's be consistent in this argument; if  government   shouldn't   be   in  business, then premiers and  other ministers shouldn't be  swanning off at taxpayers' expense, all over the world  allegedly to drum up business.  This should be left to the private  sector. They have all the tax  breaks and other incentives to  enable them to do this.  Also governments shouldn't  use public funds to bail out  businesses which either through  bad management or because of  changes in the market, threaten  to go belly up. If you believe in  free-enterprise and the  sovereignty of the market place  then bankruptcy is a natural  part of the system.  But I'm straying from the liquor store issue - in a nutshell I  think we have to be able to say  to the government - you make a  profit from selling this stuff,  you put that money back into  the services to the victims of its  mis-use. Coast News, December 7,1987  3.   -  Editor:  Our arrogant Mr. Vander  Zalm is seriously out of control.  The confrontation he deliberately set out to create with  Bills 19 and 20 has been outdone considerably by his  massive plans for privatization,  against the better advice of  some in his party. Vander Zalm  was always a man incapable of  listening.  As the Fraser Institute's  dream come true, they were  likely the only ones who weren't  shocked when our fearless  leader boldly announced that  even the public school system  could be up for grabs in his new  ground-breaking plans. Actually there is no ground here - a  century ago there was no public  school system or a myriad of  services all governments have  gradually provided to citizens in  the modern world.  The folks in the rest of  Canada, who think of B.C.  with its politics affected  somehow by mountain fever  and proximity to California,  must be really shaking their  heads over this latest right-wing  fringe at work in polarizing  B.C.  If this is some sort of attack  on the BCGEU, Mr. Vander  Zalm should have his head read.  The BCGEU must be the most  moderate of all unions in  Canada, quietly acquiescing  again and again to tiny wage increases, far behind the cost of  living increases. Indeed there  are a great many loyal Socred  supporters amongst BCGEU  members.  As one of the lowest paid  provincial civil services in the  country, it is no wonder that the  very moderate Mr. Shields runs  around in bewildered confusion  over this unwarranted declaration of war. His latest response  is very typical of the BCGEU;  no strident call to protest and  oppose all those lost jobs, but a  a*  ���:-:/���  *e  ISfHERE  Dated supplies  in stock at  txotech  OFFICE ELECTRONICS  h  Wharf Rd., Sechelt  885-3735  A  valiant announcement to try  and buy them when they are put  up to tender. Mr. Vander Zalm  obviously doesn't know a good  thing when he sees it.  But there is something even  more serious than fringe policies  and   unwarranted   attacks   at  work   here.   Our   premier's  special brand of tunnel vision is  leading him dangerously away  from the democratic process;  legislation   that   will   change  forever the economic face of  B.C. is being planned without  so much as one public input  meeting and with a real attempt  to quash  any debate in the  legislature. While the BCGEU  will likely go on accepting any  old thing the government hands  out - the rest of B.C. will certainly not. Democracy must not  be circumvented, even in B.C.  If Vander Zalm turns out to  be the 'one-term wonder' that  many now suspect, just what  ruination   will   be   left   to  Moderate Mike? Will he have to  start buying back the essential  services, so gaily abandoned by  our one-termer? At what cost?  At what cost law suits against a  government that chose to shirk  its duty to public well-being and  safety?  This little fling of B.C.'s with  style and the right-wing fringe  might turn out to be extremely  costly. And will we learn'  anything from it?  Ron Neilson  Positive  Editor:  What a joy it was to read  such a positive report on the incorporation of peace studies into our school's curriculum.  (Coast News, November 30)  I feel strongly that it is local  movements like this that help  create a suitable climate for  movement at other levels, for:  example the prospective pact  between the USSR and the USA  to eliminate their medium range  missiles from Europe. This pact  could be the first step towards  nuclear disarmament and3 a  cause for hope in an increasingly threatened world.   ���  The Sunshine Coast Peace  Committee invites all its  members, supporters and  anyone wishing to celebrate  these and other achievements to  share a Christmas potluck supper in the Community Use  Room at Roberts Creek school,  on Sunday, December 13 from  5 until 9 pm  Alison Lindsay  More letters  on page 22  Inqtia  Home Appliances  fo*  )iiances ^z^\^^4^  CooV  Prices are  LOWER THAN  REGULAR WHOLESALE!

FIREMEN BUSY  The Roberts Creek Volunteer  Firefighters have been busy lately. Besides the Hallowe'en fireworks, helping with the Weals'  Christmas lights display, and  their annual bingo, they've been  called out to car accidents,  downed hydro lines, and even a  few fires.  The call to a fire at Allan  Crean Crane's on Beach  Avenue the morning of  November 29 came too late. A  shed was destroyed and along  with it most of Allan's collection of antique records and  books.  Disaster struck again late  Monday night in the hurricane  force winds. Many trees had  come down on power lines that  evening but one 30 inch wide  bruiser fell right on top of the  duplex at the corner of Stephens  and Lower Road. The occupants narrowly missed injury  or death and the volunteer  firefighters worked nearly two  hours helping clean up and  cover the roof with tarps.  So if some people think the  fire department is just a social  club they should see them in action. Most volunteer firemen  take their responsibilities  seriously and their contribution  to the community cannot be  taken lightly.  Cut from Grade A Beef - Bone-In  CHUCK BLADE  ROAST    ��,3.06 ��,.

Both  Sechelt and Gibsons detachments have each assigned one  plainclothes officer to focus entirely on drug investigations. In  just four weeks, the two, working in conjunction with uniformed officers, have seized  $8100 worth of narcotics, reporters were told at a press conference last week. The drugs  seized included mostly cocaine,  some marijuana and some psil-  ocybin mushrooms.  Doug Robinson of the Sechelt detachment and Rick Sach  of Gibsons, are the two officers  assigned to deal exclusively with  the problem, but Sergeant Edward Hill emphasized that this-  is not because drugs are a bigger  problem here than anywhere  else, and Sach and Robinson  agreed.  The reason for the press conference, Hill explained, was for  the public to become aware that  their concerns are being acted  on and to encourage people to  start reporting any illegal drug  dealings that they may know  about. Anonymous reports can  always be made to CRIME-  STOPPERS, and Robinson and  Sach hope that people will contact them with any information  they feel could be helpful in  clamping down on drug dealers,  especially those who sell to kids.  They will also be participating in public awareness programs and are slated to talk to  the students at Chatelech in  mid-January.  Brian Butcher, principal at  Chatelech, has been a moving  force behind drug and alcohol  abuse prevention and awareness  both in the school and the community. He applauded the  RCMP for their response to the  public's concern,  community says  longer tolerate drug and alcohol  abuse', there's going to be a  problem."  He also agrees that the problem here is no worse than  anywhere else. In an interview  with the Coast News, he ex^  plained that media reports on a  recent study done by the  Ministry of Education were incorrect in saying this area's  youth showed a higher rate than  average of marijuana use. The  study, he explained, was done in  Powell River, not here.  While police are focusing on  drug dealers, several options  have been opened up in the last  year for users who want to get  off. The Mental Health Unit brings in a special counsellor from  Vancouver twice a week and  Chatelech has introduced a peer  counselling program.  "The exciting thing," said  Butcher, "is that we have kids  coming to us for help. It's  because we've given them permission to talk about it."  Lung fund  gets aid  British Columbia Lung  Association Christmas Seal  chairperson for the Sunshine  Coast area, Patricia Murphy,  reports that with eight weeks to  the campaign's end, contributions have already reached  1.5972. By January 31, it is expected that the Sunshine Coast  Christmas Seal Campaign goal  of $8070 will be realized.  Money raised through the  British Columbia Lung Association's Christmas Seal Campaign  is used to fund vital lung disease  research and health education  programs.

Frank came to Gibsons when  he was barely two years old, his  father having bought land here.  "My parents had emigrated  from Belgium to the States,"  Frank said, "and then to Clark  City in Quebec where my father  was an ironworker in the construction of a pulp mill. It was  there that I was born in 1907."  The family then came west  and on the train trip were persuaded to stop in Vancouver  rather j than their original  destination of Seattle.  "But my father was not  satisfied with the kind of work  he fo\jnd in Vancouver and  when an advertisement of land  for s^le in Gibson's Landing  caught his eye he decided to  buy. The odd thing is that he  saw the advertisement on the  upturned page of a newspaper  that had been discarded on the  street.  "My parents bought that  land; 52 acres on what is now  Cemetery Road, and worked  hard to make a farm there.  Then in May, 1921, they moved  to land on which the Executive  Apartments and the Legion are  now situated.  "So 1 have seen Gibsons and  the neighbouring areas grow  over the past 78 years. I kept a  record of that development and  eventually published it as The  West Howe Sound Story,  1886-1976."  Frank Wyngaert is a man of  keen memory with a flair for  detail that gives his book a vital  character.  Frank opened his F.J.  Wyngaert General Store in  Lower Gibsons in March, 1931,  and soon bought the building  and added to its size. In 1935  further extensive renovation  gave the unfinished ice cream  parlour in the basement more  complete furnishings and adequate equipment..  Besides groceries his store  stocked all kinds of items such  as sacked coal, cement, hay and  feed; in fact, any item that  'might realize an extra dollar'.  In 1933 a Model A van fitted  with shelves that were fitted  with staple items made the  rounds of the district. Orders  were taken, as well, and  delivered later in the week. A  travelling store to ease the weary  trudging up and down the trails  of the district.

Family and friends came  from Chilliwack, Surrey, and  from Willowbunch, Saskatchewan, and many from the  Sunshine Coast to wish Frank  well. It was about this time last  year that Frank and Jean  celebrated their 50th wedding  anniversary. Many happy  returns, Frank.  NEWSLETTER  Langdale Elementary's latest  newsletter announced their  Christmas concert to be held  December 17, a Thursday, at 7  pm. A bake and craft sale  follows the performance.  In the colouring contest that  was part of the RCMP-spon-  sored safety week in the school  in November the following  pupils were awarded bicycle  safety equipment: Nathan Atchison, Grade 1; Jeanette  Kangas, Grade 2.  .IUNKMAIL  An item in a Victoria  newspaper tells how to confound distributors of junk mail.

ENTERTAINMENT  The repeating of one  evening's program from this  year's Summer Play Parade this  past November 13 and 14 was a  splendid treat, especially for any  who had not been able to attend  in the summer.  English as  second  language  This is the second year at  Davis   Bay   School   for   two  children from Thailand, eleven  year old Nawin and seven and a  half year old Rungthiwa. The  youngsters did not speak any  English when they arrived in  1986, but a slide presentation tp  the   School   Board   by   their  teacher   Mrs.    Pat   Rossiter,  J  showed.them p^ticipating hapjs^.  pily iri*^'' variety of' curricular^  and extra-curricular activities. ^'  Asked how one deals with  teaching children English, when  you don't know their language,  Rossiter said "It's a little like  teaching babies. You speak to  them slowly and clearly, with  lots of repetition. They learn a  lot from the other children. It's  almost like osmosis."  The happy faces of the children shown in the slides attested  to the success of the venture.  Also at last Tuesday's  meeting, new Trustees Carol  Adams and Shawn Cardinall  were welcomed to the board.  r  oK*V *"*  MIDNITE MARKET * OlfTLANO  Groceries ��� Chinese Foods ��� Coffee ��� Hot Dogs ��� Ice Cream  Toys ��� Gifts ��� Novelties ��� Wicker ��� Videos  *  'lot* *v "     SpeccM  (while stock lasts)  99  e        ���.    ���       ���      ���    **J    *>mW  ......10  ...

Rd., Gibsons (across from Nick's Shell) 886-2455  The array of monologues in  Talking With...deftly revealed  the inner secret feelings of each  of the characters seemingly confiding in a trusted and  understanding listener.  The 11 actresses were so well  ensconced in the characters they  portrayed, so earnest in their  delivery, so in command of  stage business, that they simply  enthralled their audience.  Do consider presenting this  program some time again, dear  ladies, for there must be a few  hundred people about who  haven't attended yet. 'Deliver',  by the way, in the previous  paragraph is in no way a  reference to the monologue,  Dragons.  By using two sets of risers,  courtesy of Elphinstone Secondary, this troupe made a  satisfactory auditorium out of  the Arts Centre. Along with a  raised stage, jet black backdrop,  and strong spotlights, the play  had simple but adequate house  arrangements. Full marks there,  but some credit lost for lack of  printed programs the first night.  That did save paper though.  To all the actresses a hearty  note of appreciation for a stirring evening's entertainment,  and of course for the complementary music provided by  Ken Dalgleish.  The actresses deserve to be  named and in order of appearance they were... Arline  Collins, Nest Lewis, Karen  Bruce, Inge Dahn, Alexa Chap-  pell, Sandie McGinnis, Ronnie  Dunn, Judith Scott, Alice  Albrecht, Colleen Elson,  Dianne Evans.

A SCOTTISH TRIP  Allan and Fiona West of  Welcome Beach, together with  their son Brad have recently  returned from a most enjoyable  holiday in Britain. The purpose  of the visit was to help Fiona's  aunt celebrate her 90th birthday. And celebrate she did! Apparently the aged aunt had just  returned from a holiday in Italy  and gathered together with a  group of friends in her home  town of Glasgow for the birthday party and had a great time.  She still lives in a house in  Maryhill where she has always  lived, which, incidentally, is the  same district in which yours truly first saw the light of day.

ISSSIIiHliiSSffli^Si  Last ticket ca  by Larry Grafton  This will be the last call for  tickets to the Sechelt Seniors'  Christmas dinner on December  10 in the Sechelt Legion, there  are less than 20 left. This year it  is my understanding that each  table will be served with sufficient food to whet the appetite  of the individuals at that particular table.  In the past years the  smorgasbord type of service  proved unsatisfactory for our  group. Also, this year, ticket  sales have been limited which  will eliminate the excess  crowding that took place last  year.  If you'd like a ticket to sit  down with your friends and  fellow members, phone either  Joan Timms at 885-9249 or  Olive Marshall at 885-9904 for  tickets or further information.  After the meal, the 69ers will be  rendering a few selections under  - the able baton of Nikki Weber  and accompanist Connie  Wilson.  FUND RAISING  Perhaps one of the most  frustrating aspects of trying to  provide a new activity centre for  our members, and the community at large, is the nasty  business of raising the necessary  funds to accomplish our goal.  Prior to approaching our own  membership and the business  community in our area, the  building committee, with the  sanction of one of our general  meetings, was authorized to  engage a consultant for the purpose intended.  Last week the first material  was in our hands for signature  and is now well on its way. Further research is being done in a  variety of fields by our consultant which, hopefully, will help  us attain our goal.  The committee wishes to  thank those of our members  who have voluntarily come forward with substantial ' cash  donations in the last couple of  months. For those of you to  whom it applies, our branch  now has a tax number, so your  receipt will be applicable for income tax purposes. Unfortunately, when our fund raising  drive was. on to purchase our  building, we did not have the  necessary tax number. This has  now been rectified.  BAZAAR  Although I personally was  unable to attend the bazaar on  November 28, it proved to be  another great success, from  reports I have heard. If you are  the holder of ticket number  843475 you are the winner of a  grocery hamper. You should  phone 885-9249 to arrange pickup.  Winner of the panda bear  raffle was Cic Harrison. Other  raffle winners were: Bill Butler,  foot bath; Diane Mullins,  pillow cases; and Cathy Mills,  table runner and napkins.  All told there were three  grocery hampers and four cakes  raffled during the progressive  afternoon. Special thanks of the  branch is tendered to the kind  donors of all raffle items which  includes multiple donations of  canned goods for the hampers.  Special thanks, also, to the hard  working committee who made  the afternoon a resounding success, and to those of you whose  talent supplied the many articles  that are so necessary to that success.  Each year the Thursday morning (10 am) craft group scratch  their collective heads for new  ideas, as soon as the Christmas  Bazaar is over, which will apply  to the Easter Tea and Sale. If  you are aware of an item that  can be utilized by the committee  for the spring sale, they will be  very pleased to hear from you.

The younger children, each  with a tiny violin, played a  variety of musical games, while  the older students tackled more  complicated pieces.  Wise explained that the  highly successful Suzuki  method starts children at a very  early age and teaches them first  to play by ear rather than by  reading music.  An essential ingredient of the  method is the involvement of  parents. By attending classes  with their children, parents are  then able to help with practicing  at home.

Nonresident membership is available  for a $5 fee plus a refundable  $20 deposit. /  Several library volunteers/are  moving away from Pender Harbour or will be on extehded  winter holidays, so the library is  finding itself short staffed.

Every way a person  turned was a challenge.  That's okay, I'll sit by the  fireplace and eat popcorn, but  the popcorn is now made in the  microwave. Didn't you know,  you just pop bag and corn in the  jmicro and in a flash the bag and  < corn pop together.  Monday morning my complaint was those little paper cafe  creamers are not tearing open  properly so you have to use a  clean fork to poke a hole in  them hoping it won't squirt.  Tuesday morning I could  have killed for a cup of coffee  and not even worried about a  silly creamer. Give Ruby Lake  Restaurant a six-star rating,  they made coffee oh a Coleman  stove and must have carried  buckets of water from the lake.  How I have changed. A few  years ago I went into the lake all  year round through sun, rain  and snow, by Thursday last  week I drove 50 miles for a hot  shower (after picking my  cleanest dirty socks out of the  laundry).

Included in his  presentation was how to set up  public library policy, and shared  responsibilities with trustees and  librarians.  There were a few questionnaires to help the group take a  good look at how their library  board is working.  Sixteen persons were present  at the talk in the Marine Room  in Gibsons. This included  librarians and board members  from Sechelt and Gibsons  libraries, and librarians from  the reading centres in Pender  Harbour, Roberts Creek and  Wilson Creek. The training session was very well received and  will go a long way to help the  running of the libraries in the  "area-.     -  Pam and Peter Feichtnerjpyo-  vided a grand lunch.

Jan Kennedy, Director of  Resident Care, thanked the  volunteers for making the place  more like home. Coming from  an acute care hospital, Jan loves  the homey difference the aux^  iliary makes.  Peggy Cotgrave will replace  Nadine Scudamore as chairman  of the visiting committee.  The volunteers have put in  2633 hours in the facility and  many more on outside work.

Carol has served very effectively as my alternate on the  SCRD for the past three years  so I know she will do a great job  as your trustee.  And a happy birthday yesterday, Carol!  Koch gives  explanation  ; - 5^2 by Ken Collins.;..  :AHast week's Sechelt Council meeting Mayor Bud Koch  gave a clear reason for Sechelt  withdrawing from some of the  Regional District functions such  as planning and economic  development.  "We believe offshore ads are  premature," stated Koch. "We  believe the enhancement of  local areas is more important."  Koch also gave an indication  of the monies saved by not participating. "We are saving  $100,000 of the taxpayers'  money," he said. "That is 20  percent of our budget."  Also discussed was an apparent gap in communication  between Sechelt Council and the  Regional Board. It involved the  contribution of the Regional  District to the arena expenses  and it was Alderman Craig who  brought the subject up.  "Some time ago we asked the  Regional District if they would  contribute," said Craig. "Have  we had a reply?"  "Only what we read in the  newspaper," answered Mayor  Koch.  "If we send a formal letter,  aren't we entitled to a return?"  wondered-Craig.. ....   I. . .  Margaret Gemmell, volunteer co-ordinator for the Shorncliffe  Auxiliary presented Administrator Howard Webster with a $1000  cheque last Monday. The money will go into a fund for a new, bus  for Shorncliffe. ���Ken Collins photo  Vou'fe  <!(-��� Come And Select  Your Favourite  DRESSES  to size 16  BOYS'DRESS PANTS  I sizes 4-16  DRESS SHIRTS  sizes 12 mo-16  EARRINGS  pierced, clip-on  & nylon  all at  Trail Bay Centre,  Sechelt  885-5255  ^S's,  ^�����w  W*       'zvoorC  Mrmi  L^axxum  - the world's  1st autofocus  interchangeable  lense camera ���  LENSES BY MINOLTA  28 wide angle  *169"  35-70 zoom  ��219"  28-85 zoom  *369"  100-200 zoom  *199*9  70-210 zoom  '299"  75-300 zoom  $649"  2nd set  of prints  Va prices  MAXXUM BODIES  Complete With 50m 1.7  Standard Lense  5000 \ *4299a  7000 \ * 49998  9000 \      *72998  <40  "kSf  -\  MINOLTA BINOCULARS  co'  3A  99  *35  75  ,**  *o,  0/77  ��������  DUAL LENSE  AUTOFOCUS  FREEDOM DL  ��� A completely automatic 35 mm camera,  with your choice of standard/telephoto  lense at a very affordable price.  99  229  AF-TELE  Minolta's top of the line dual lense 35 mm  auto focus offering complete automatic  operation plus a self timer and backlight  compensation.

The new system for managing commercial clam harvest on  oyster tenures was jointly announced last week by B.C.  Agriculture and Fisheries  Minister John Savage and  Federal Minister of Fisheries  and Oceans, Tom Siddon.  "This will be a workable and effective system to manage clam  harvesting on oyster leases. It  seeks to prevent the damage to  oyster beds and the consequent  monetary loss that is presently  taking place," Siddon said.  The new plan stipulates  designated areas of the oyster  tenures where clam harvesting  can^take'^place^and at which  specific "times it can occur.  Oyster tenures are identified by  standard red coloured concrete  markers placed oh the boundaries in the intertidal area.  Harvesting clams in closed  areas will result in fines of up to  $5,000. The new plan takes effect immediately.  Oyster tenures will be closed  to recreational clam digging at  all times. The Ministers indicated that they would investigate the feasibility of  establishing a number of recreational clam reserves in oyster  farm areas.  ine Gifts With Your Choice Of  EXQUISITE CHOCOLATES, CREAMY FUDGE,  SPECIALTY NUTS, DELICIOUS  PEANUT BRITTLE  ��� Decorator Tins  ��� Wicker Sleighs  ��� Santa Cubes  ��� Christmas Mugs  ��� Snow Ceese Bags  I-N-D-U-L-G-E  Davis Bay News &��� Views  /adi  (Leather  (iVWlLLETS h Renwick  '  Bobbie's Shoes ~  All HANDBAGS  20% off  ISOTONER Slippers  All Men's SLIPPERS  10��/c  o off  885-9838  by Jean Robinson, 885-2954  The Western Weight Controllers had many winners for  their recent flea market draw.

From Harbour Publishing  by Rose Nicholson  Nothing you have every read  will quite prepare you for Anne  Cameron's latest book, Stubby  Amberchuk and the Holy Grail  (Harbour Publishing, 1987).  You may be tempted at first to  think of Kinsella and Timothy  Findley, transplanted to a B.C.  logging camp. But that's only  the beginning.  Cameron's scope is awesome.  She covers everything from the  mind destroying life in an inlet  float camp to a talking dragon  who knows about magic.  The characters are some of  the most colourful since Bret  Harte.  There's a millionaire senior  citizen who made her money  playing poker and who saw God  when she looked at the sun, but  went blind in the process.  - There's a tough but gentle  'Bohunk' logger, whose size and  strength have fitted him for  working in the woods and  nothing more.  There's Megan, who, born  and brought up in a gyppo  camp and determined to make a  better life for herself, becomes a  lady wrestler.  Then   there's  Stubby,   who  Christmas  boughs  by Ken Collins  Christmas has struck again  and among the unbreakable  traditions of turkey, mistletoe,  and the exchanging of gifts is included the Christmas tree.  Already, normally vacant corner lots all over North America  are being transformed into  places where, late into the night,  warmly bundled salespeople will  come out of a warm, temporarily placed trailer and usher you  down the rows of trees until you  find that special one just for  you.  It used to be that the only  way to get a tree was to tromp  through the bush and cut it  down yourself, and for many,  especially in rural areas such as  the Sunshine Coast, it is still the  preferred method.  The Forest Service, however,  would prefer that,a permit be  obtained before doing so. Their  ���reasoning is not that there is a  shortage of trees or that you  might be doing a logging company out of some profits, but  that they don't want you  stumbling into a nicely cared for  tree farm.  The added bonus from obtaining a permit to cut a tree  (for which there is no charge) is  that they will advise you where  the best places are to select a  tree. There is nothing worse  than spending two hours slugging futilely through the bush only to discover that the only  suitable trees are 40 feet in the  air because that's the only place  the sun ever hits.  Vancouver yuppies such as  William Stanley are in desperate  search for the tree so perfect  that it needs no decorations except perhaps a single garland or  a lone ornament on the top.  Their idea of perfect is a little  different than that of old  mother nature. What they are  striving for is a tree that has  been continuously pruned  throughout its growth so that  there are no blank spaces between the branches.  Somewhere between the city  yuppie that serves perrier with  glacier ice and the country logger that stirs his coffee with his  thumb is the average Canadian.  They are the ones who will at  the last minute dash out to the  tree lot or purchase from the  Boy Scouts.  The final selection will cost  from $15 to $40 and will be  nicely pointed and bushy. It will  be pine, fir or spruce but not  hemlock (hemlock tends to start  shedding needles within a few  days) and when it finally un-  thaws from its rigor mortis will  be not quite as thick as originally imagined, but, after the usual  family feuds that accompany  decorating the tree will look  even more beautiful than last  year.  Drop off your  COAST NEWS  CLASSIFIEDS  at  SEAVIEW MARKET  in Roberts Creek  until noon Saturday  "A Friendly People Place"  sees life with astonishing clarity.  A childhood spent shuffling  between a 'genteel' mother, a  logger father and finally a  millionaire benefactor, makes  her develop a philosophy that is  pragmatic, to say the least. Yes,  Stubby does actually look for  and expect to find the Holy  Grail. After she explains why,  you're tempted to believe that it  just might exist, after all.  And not to forget the dragon,  who may or may not be a pet  poodle. She delivers a  philosophic treatise on the  history of the world that  sometimes makes more sense  than the official lines.  Cameron the feminist is only  occasionally bitter. Most of the  time she seems to have come to  a place where she can understand the inequities, if not accept  them.  The language is genuine B.C.  Coast logging, complete with all  the picturesque, loggers' profanity. This may make you cringe if you're squeamish, but  more likely will make you explode into delighted laughter.  Cameron juggles all these  unlikely elements with  astonishing dexterity. The result  is impossible to define or  .categorize. But one thing is certain, this is one book that will  not blend imperceptibly into all  the family sagas, thrillers and  fantasies.  Stubby Amberchuk and the  Holy Grail will stand clear and  fresh in your mind for a long  time, and you may find yourself  going back to it many times to  ponder the thought-provoking  ideas that turn up in the most  unexpected places.

It was a  \   beautifully crafted handgun, the  i   blued   steel   barrel   intricately  !   engraved; the polished walnut  1  stock inlaid with silver wire car-  ������������' touches.       '���-'.._  ;      Laid out on the table before  ;.:��� me were a number of other  ;  priceless historical artifacts: the  ;': companion weapon to the one I-  ' was holding; a pair of smaller  !': double-barrelled duelling pieces  i: with   embossed   silver   butts,  ^reportedly carried by the Prince  ���!. at Culloden in 1745; a locket  --���/containing   cuttings   of   the  . 1 Youfif^Pretender's   hair;   an  .'��� original   miniature  of   Mary,  " Queen of Scots;  three  other*  miniatures, two of James HI  and one of Prince Charles; a  r length of the Ribbon of the  i Garter, once worn by the Prince  r during his.- ill-fated campaign  and a L6uis XV oblong gold  snuff-box, ornately chased with  jgrbups of animals in treed landscapes.  * As I gripped the antique  [flintlock in that very contemporary setting, I could almost  | see the bloody field of Culloden  I where Bonnie Prince Charlie's  ^exhausted rag-tag troops were  ��� ruthlessly massacred by the  ^Duke of Cumberland's well-  strained army, ending forever  the Young Pretender's vain attempt to reclaim the British  i Throne, in the name of his exiled father, James III. I could  almost smell the musket smoke,  hear the clash of swords and the  agonized cries of mortally  wounded Clansmen, dying  hopelessly in an ill-starred  cause. The room bristled with  history.  But how did these invaluable  Jacobite artifacts end up in Victoria, B.C. in 1987? It is a  fascinating story.  The clue to much of the puzzle is embodied in the elegant  gold snuff-box. David Edgar's  remote ancestor, James Edgar,  was, for over 40 years, private  secretary to James III, during  the King-without-a-throne's  long exile in Paris and Rome.  James Edgar, the younger son  of a poor Scottish laird, was  scrupulously loyal to his master  and the Stuart cause.  This loyalty was put to its  most stringent test by British  Prime Minister, Sir Robert  Walpole, in the years following  the abortive Jacobite rebellion  of 1715. Walpole,  suspecting  that another Jacobite insurrection was in the making, instructed his agents to approach  James Edgar and offer him a  handsome sum to betray his  master's plans.  The indignant secretary flatly  refused. Walpole's spies made  several subsequent attempts to  corrupt Edgar, upping the ante  on each occasion. His answer  was always the same.  Finally, Walpole wrote  directly to the secretary, informing him that 10,000 pounds had  been deposited tefhis credit at  the Bank of Venice. The  unshakeable Edgar simply  ���withdrew the money and  presentedJt to his master. He  then wrote^Walpole a letter of  thanks, advisTrig>him that he  had passed it on to James III  "to whom it rightfully  belongs".  . Walpole reported the incident..  %C*parliament, declaring'  vehemently .that "You can  never trust an Edgar J'^The exiled 'King' (officially known as  the Chevalier St. George), certainly had no complaints in this  -regard. As.a,token of gratitude^  he presented James Edgar with  the gold snuff-box.  James Edgar was not the only  member of his family to be intimately involved with the  Jacobite conspiracy. His cousin,  John Edgar of Rathwell, acted  as diplomatic courier for the  King and his supporters, travelling back and forth between  Scotland and Rome.  John Edgar, as befitted his  risky calling, was an expert and  deadly swordsman. This facility  stood him in good stead when  he was ambushed by three of Sir  Robert Walpole's agents, near  Rouen in France.  The quick-thinking courier  wasted no time in small talk  with his adversaries. He whipped off his long tartan cloak,  threw it over their heads and ran  them through, one after the  other. Wiping off his sword, he  re-sheathed it and continued  about his business.  One of the would-be assassins  survived and reported the incident to the English ambassador  in Paris. A charge of murder  was laid against John Edgar and  when he rode that way again, he  was arrested.  The resultant trial was a farcical affair. When it was shown  that John Edgar had committed  his 'murders' while under attack  by three professional swordsmen, he was easily acquitted.  The dauntless courier survived  numerous other attacks of this  sort and, years later, died  peacefully in Paris, in bed.  To be continued  Booking in  by Montague Royal  The exotic branch of  literature that falls under the  general designation of fantasy  has been around, in one form or  another, for a long time.  Science Fiction is a relatively recent offshoot, but the parent  genre is very old. Fantasy deals  with subject matter that is outside the range of day-to-day  human experience. It encompasses everything from gothic  romances to classic ghost stories  and adult fairy tales. Some element of the supernatural is  generally present. When magic  occurs, it is not of the stage  variety. In fantasy, the supernormal becomes the norm.  In The Fantasy Book  (Thames and Hudson), writer  Franz Rottensteiner has made  an intelligent and comprehensive study of.the idiom.  The inventor of the gothic  novel was the eccentric son of  famous 18th century politician,  Sir   Robert  Walpole.   Horace  Walpole  had   no  interest  in  politics. He was an antiqarian,  obsessed   with   the   days   of  chivalry, and lived in the replica  of a medieval castle. Walpole's  trailbreaking novel The Castle  of Ortranto, was based on a  dream he had while ensconced  in these archaic surroundings. It  concerns a villainous prince called Manfred and his attempts to  cheat the true heir to the castle  out of his birthright. The book  contains all the elements that  would become staples of the  gothic   genre   -   a   beautiful  heroine in dire peril; a gloomy  castle, full of secret rooms and  passages and plenty of supernatural manifestations.  When  he initially published the book  in    1764   Walpole,   fearing '  ridicule, claimed to haver.fdutid  the manuscript in^ujrrotd trunk.  But   it   was .enthusiastically,  received   and   he   admitted  authorship in the second edition;  .:���'���'   The   success   of   Ortranto,  kicked off a trend toward imaginative   fiction   that   would  reach its peak in the 1800's and,  continues, in various fonfi^-rp  _���. this day. Much of it was aJrid'is  unmitigated ^ trash   with!   few/ >  redeeming   qualities,   but   thgv  field has also pi?6auced many  stories and novels of:" Tasting  worth.     Mary    Shelley's  Frankenstein was undoubtedly  the most important book of this  early period. The story of a man  who created a monster is too  well-known to be reprised, but  it remains a unique achievement,   a   horror   story   with  philosophical overtones.  The 19th century and the Victorian period in particular, produced some of the best fantasy  ever written: Edgar Allan Poe's  claustrophobic   death-obsessed  horror tales; She and the other  African romances of H. Rider  Haggard; the ghost stories of  Mr.      James,     Algernon  Blackwood and J. Sheridan Le  Fanu (whose vampire tale Car-  milla,   would   inspire;   Bram  Stoker to write his classic horror  novel Dracula); Robert Louis  Stevenson's chiller about the  ultimate split personality, Dr.  Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. The list is  extensive   and   Rottensteiner  misses  few of the important  names. He even includes Lewis  Carroll, whose Alice books,  while primarily aimed at  children, contain many  subtleties that adults can appreciate.  An equally exhaustive series  of chapters traces the development of fantasy writing in the  20th century. The author ranges  widely frm the convoluted imaginings of Franz Kafka to the  out and out cosmic horror of  HP Lovecraft. He cites the importance of JRR Tolkien,  whose massive saga of Middle  Earth, The Lord of the Rings,  sold millions of copies in the  1960's and remains a classic. He  acknowledges the importance of  the pulp magazine Weird Tales,  which provided an early forum  for Lovecraft, Robert E.  Howard and the young Ray  Bradbury. He lauds the unique  writer and illustrator, Mervyn  Peake, who created the utterly  odd world of Titus Groan and  South American writers Gabriel  Garcia Marques and Jorge Luis  Berges.  The Fantasy Book is lavishly  illustrated with drawings, many  of them in color/and paintings  and contains a comprehensive  bibliography  Gibsons Legion  Branch 109  GENERAL MEETING _  For Election Of Officers ^     \K  Tuesday, December 8, 8:00 pm        \ t  Come Out All Members And Vote  December 11 & 12  CHUCK & BOB  ^JW^    Members & Guests Welcome  Santa says  shop locally  Roberts Creek L EG IO N  BOB CARPENTER  and  KEN DALGLEISH  Saturday, December 12  General Meeting  WED.

So you have  (| a lunar return once a month,  *' usually a pretty good day,  | Your solar return each year  close   to,   but   not  ���} occurs  * necessarily on, your birthday.  A chart done at that time gives  you a pretty good idea of the  tone for the upcoming year.  Mercury and Venus take  jji about, a year, give or take a  ^months', and Mars checks into  home base about every two  jj years. These each have an ef-  jfect, but it's a brief, passing  j thing that sets the mood for a  jiday or a weekend, not much  ' more.  The slower moving planets,  phowever, have much more im-  gpact. Jupiter takes about 12  % years to complete a cycle, and  Jits return is often an  ^auspicious time for an individual.  Saturn    returns   every    29  gyears, and appears to have the.  ��most ;noticable  effect;   Even  |the angles it forms to its loca-  ftion at your birth as it moves  jthrough    the    sky     have  {significance in describing the  Icycles in a person's life.  '*.   I'm not forgetting Uranus. ,  pt returns once every 84 years  tor so. But not everyone makes  Jit that  far. ,  I Saturn returns tend to be a  jfome when significant changes  !��jare made in lifestyles: single  jjpeople get married, or married  ijpeople divorce; careers may  lljstart or end, or simply change  ^direction. It's a time for  jjmaturing and self-evaluation.  Some people glide through  t with no problems. They're  eady for change, unafraid of  ew responsibilities. Others  ���!feel torn apart, jailed, or  [frustrated. Those who are facing a Saturn return now will  ;probably go through more turmoil than most, especially in  $he next few months.  4 Anyone who is having their  |9th birthday in 1988 will be  Effected, as well as those born  etween February and June  958 and February 1959, and  uly and October 1959.

Saturn returning to its place  in your chart will probably  cause a lot of introspection  and self-analysis as you look  at your life and where you are  in comparison to where you'd  like to be.

At this time  you must change, but you can:<'<������������  control how and in what ways.  If there are aspects of your life  that need changing and you  dig in your heels, determined  not to budge, things will happen to you that compel you to  move. It's much easier if you  do it voluntarily.  A special word of caution to  those born between November  23 and December 25 in 1929 or  1958, this will also be hitting  your Sun, your sense of self. It  is especially important for you  to let go of old patterns and  lifestyles that are inhibiting  your growth as a person. You  may even want to seek out  some kind of therapy or support group during this time.  Doit!  While change can often be  upsetting, it can also bring us  to a new way of being that is  much happier and more fulfilling.

Your guide to  the finest in  area dining  DINING GUIDE  A listing of  restaurants  and pubs  Twwfc of  fte Coml  She was working late on a Friday night. It's not unusual. I  took the initiative, made a dinner reservation and arranged to  pick her up at:our Sechelt office at 7:15 pm.  It was earlier than she would have liked but she did want to go  out to dinner and the reservation was made. By such small  stratagems do clever husbands prevail.  Our destination on a blustery night in late November was the  Jolly Roger just 15 minutes up the best part of Highway 101  from Sechelt and well worth the journey.  The Jolly Roger's incomparable view was obscured by the  darkness and storminess of the night but within all was warmth  and relaxed hospitality. The patrons already ensconced were obviously at their most pleasant ease.  We decided we were in a seafood mood and ordered a carafe  of white house wine, the better to make our menu decisions at  our leisure.  I was hungry, lunch having eluded me. I ordered a bowl of  chicken and vegetable soup which, when it came, proved most  heartily satisfying. ;  She ordered the seafood special which tempted me too, but  eventually I gave in to my predilection for halibut.  Doreen, the waitress, appeared unfailingly at just the right  time, was helpful with information about the charming  background music, and the food was excellent.  We enjoyed a Bailey's Irish Cream whilst deciding on dessert.  Isettled for the Coconut Cream Pie. It was simply blissful. She  chose the Creme Caramel and despite protestations of inability  was able to help me out with a taste or two of the cream pie.  Next day in our Sechelt office was left a tape of the music we  had enjoyed the night before, left by the very helpful Doreen,  complete with Season's Greetings.

Scott Lincez, Danny Prentis,  Cyril Kaspar, and Sean Symes,  all aged fifteen, went to Vancouver and played for the Argos  Bantam team.  Lincez won Honourable  Mention for his work on the  defensive line, Linebacker  Symes also won Honourable  Mention, Outside Lineback  Prentiss took the Most Versatile  Player Award and Cyril Kaspar  won Best Defensive Player as  Middle Lineback.  Unanimously, they all want  to continue playing in Vancouver whether there is a Bantam team here or not because  they found the level of play to  be more exacting and professional.  "They played in our program  since 1983," the boys former  coach on the Coast Gary  Groenke said when he heard of  the awards. "That's nice to  hear. Usually the kids from the  Sunshine Coast have a disadvantage with the kids from  North Vancouver."  Groenke said there was a  Bantam team here up until last  year, but the number of players  available this past year didn't  support it.

They are as  follows:  Gary Feschuck team is now  'Shop Easy'; Bob Weston team  is now 'Sechelt Lions'; Nick  Bergnach team is now 'Nick's  Shell'; and Scott Avery team is  now 'Pharmasave'.

For  lany'ln this position, it is impossible to find adequate  ^transportation, so to meet those  Speeds, the Volunteer Drivers  [Program was initiated in the.  |��arly 1980's.  p. The program has operated  finder the umbrella of the Sunshine Coast Community Services Society (SCCSS), but with  irtually no funding available to  ay staff or administrative  ^osts.  k Early this year it was realised  lhat, unless some other arrangements were made, this  Valuable program would have to  be terminated. The Volunteer  Action Centre, also a part of  SCCSS, here stepped in and  decided to try to keep the program going under its wing.  Thanks to the generosity of  the Roberts Creek Legion,  Branch 219, the program can  continue into the new year.  However, the most pressing  immediate need is for new  volunteer drivers. Our small  core of volunteers^ presently put  in many hours a month delivering this service. Several put in  between 200 and 400 hours a  year. With a growing need in  the community, it is clear that  more drivers will have to be  found.  To become a volunteer driver  one must have a valid driver's  licence, up-to-date insurance  coverage and a well-maintained  vehicle. On a volunteer driver  trip, one pays out-of-pocket expenses, which are then reimbursed when a driver's expense  form is submitted. These expenses include mileage, ferry  fares and parking costs.  The Volunteer Drivers Program would like to hear from  anyone interested in being a  volunteer driver. Please call  either Rita or Dianne at  885-5881 or drop into our office, upstairs at The Dock,  Cowrie Street, Sechelt, between  8:30am and noon, or 1 to 4pm,  Monday to Friday.  s��  GIFT BASKETS  OUR  SPECIALTY  ��L=  Minor  Hockey  /  Reference: Point Atkinson  Pacific Standard Time  For Skookumchuk Narrows add 1 hr. 45 min.,  plus 5 min. for each ft. of rise,  and 7 min. for each ft. of fall.

Coast News, December 7,1987   ��f i'V,  Albert Weal is again busy putting up an elaborate Christmas  display of lights and scenery on Oldershaw Road for the enjoyment  of Sunshine Coast residents. The public is invited to tour the fantasy land beginning this Thursday. ���Penny Fuller photo  Joyful tradition  by Penny Fuller  Christmas seems to bring out  the generosity in most people.  Money is dropped into collection kettles, canned goods are  sent off to Christmas hampers.  But some people have such large  hearts that they just have to do  more.  Albert and Mary Weal are  two such people. Every year,  for approximately 15 years, the  Weals have offered a gift of the  spirit to everyone on the Sunshine Coast - a walk through a  Christmas Fantasyland.  The now magnificent light  display on Oldershaw Road  started with a lit-up Santa Claus  and snowman. The next year  saw the surrounding trees  decorated, and it just kept  growing. This year approximately 300 strings of light will  be up.  Back in 1980, Mary became  frustrated with the number of  broken bulbs that come in each  package, so she wrote a letter to  Nicole Parton at the Vancouver  Sun. As a result of the complaint the regional manager for  Noma Lights got in touch with  the Weals. After a few years of  selling them the needed lights at  wholesale, Noma now donates  lights and strings every year.  With the ever increasing  number of displays and the  onset of his 87th birthday,  Albert realized he was going to  need some help. The Roberts  Creek Volunteer Fire Department pitched in and helped to  set things up and will provide  two people each night to help  host the public viewings. More  than 1850 people wandered  through last year.  In these times of rising costs,  the inevitable question comes to  mind, how much does the electricity for all this cost. They  both grin. "Our hydro is  budgeted on a monthly basis,"  says Mary. "I don't want to  know how much it costs."  There is a donation box by  the door and contributions over  the years have gone to a variety  of local charities. Last year $825  was collected for the Roberts  Creek Volunteer Fire Department.  But the nicest part, says  Mary, is the people. Over the  years, people who first came as  lEE  SE  an=  33  PART A OF 26  lo the Peoples  of the Wor/d  A    BAHAl    STATEMENT    ON  Peace  Wll M fiVER SUFFERING and turmoil the years  immediately ahead may hold, however dark the  immediate circumstances, the Baha'icommunity helie%es that humanity can confront this  vipiemc trial with confidence in its ultimate  outcome. Far from signalizing the end of  civilization, the convulsive changes towards  which humanity is being ever more rapidly impelled will serve to release the "potentialities  inherent in the station of man" and reveal "the  full measure of his destiny on earth, the innate  excellence of his reality".  I  The endowments which distinguish the  human race from all other forms of life are  summed up in what is known as the human  spirit: the mind is its essentia) qualify. These endowments have enabled humanity to build civilizations and to prosper materially. But such  accomplishments alone have never satisfied the  human spirit, whose mysterious nature inclines  it towards transcendence, a reaching towards an  invisible realm, towards the ultimate reality, that  unknowable essence of essences called God.  The religions brought to mankind by a succession of spiritual luminaries have been the  primary link between humanity and that  ultimate reality, and have galvanized and refined  mankind's capacity to achieve spiritual success  together with social progress.

"It's a lot of work," she admitted, "and I get tired and  cold, but when you see the people come in, especially the  children, it's all worthwhile."  The display will be open to  the public starting this Thursday  between 6 and 10 pm and will  continue until January 1, 1988.  Cedar Plaza may receive permission to undergo a major  facelift in an attempt to turn the  financial sleeper into a wide  awake money-maker.  Gibsons Planning Committee  will meet this week to study a  proposal by plaza owners,  North West Life Assurance  Corporation of Canada, to re-  zone the lot the plaza occupies  and redevelop the office space  and overall premises into a full  facility motor hotel.  Town Planner Rob Buchan,  in his report to Gibsons Council  December 1, said, "The need  for a change of commercial  direction in Cedar Plaza has  been evident for some time,"  and, "it is interesting to reflect  that the proposed use is a  renaissance of the original motel  land use almost 20 years ago."  Now, General Equities of  Canada Ltd., the firm handling  the property for North West, requires the currant General  the property for North West, requires the current General Commercial Zone 1 to be changed to  a Tourist Commercial Zone 2 to  allow for the conversion.  Fred Jaremchuk, Vice-  President of Operations for  General Equities, told the Coast  News the plans are still at a  relatively general stage of  development waiting for the  zoning change.  Buchan said the zone change  would mean a slight departure  from Gibsons' Official Community Plan, "but I don't consider it as a major change."  .<--  Since being taken over from  private investors nearly six years  ago, Jaremchuk said the  building has not been  generating   enough   income  because there is no office space  demand in Gibsons and it has  taken several years to fill what  space is being used now.  "It really hasn't worked out  for retail users either because  with everything closed in as it is  there is no street exposure. It  doesn't help."  Jaremchuk said a full motor  hotel with swimming pool,  sauna, banquet room, exercise  and recreational facilities would  better serve the town than an office site which is half-empty.  tyw* duftuxnt fa* kt�� a (**$& fad** ��*> faxQtef  "tome.

Our innovative Electric Plus plan can cut your  heating costs dramatically, if you now use oil or  propane. Keep your fuel-fired heating system  as a back-up and switch on Electric Plus  for safe, clean, 100% efficient electric heat  Use Electric Plus whenever there is surplus  hydroelectric energy; at other times, simply  switch over to your back-up system, which can  be oil, propane, wood or coal.  Interruptions will be limited to a maximum  of only 120 days between now and March 1991.  Save with our special low rate.  Electric Plus is just 2.5 cents a kilowatt-hour.  That's about half what you would normally pay  for firm electricity. This special rate will stay the  same until March 1991. Even after that, surplus  interruptible hydro will cost substantially less  than firm electricity.  So if you're heating with oil or propane,  Electric Plus can save you up to 50% or more  on fuel, depending on the price of alternative  fuels in your community. You qualify by wiring  for a new electrical meter, which we will  install, and having a back-up system which  uses fuel stored on your property. Electric Plus  is not available to customers now heating  with natural gas.  Enjoy Electric Plus combined with wood.  If you now heat with wood or coal, you can  move up to a dual-fuel system by adding  convenient, efficient Electric Plus. Savings vary  with the cost of your present fuel. Your solid-  fuel system can qualify as a back-up if it is an  authentic heating unit rather than being  primarily decorative, and can heat the same  area of your home as Electric Plus for an  extended time. For details see our pamphlet  "Electric Plus and Wood Heating;' available  from contractors and Hydro offices.  Regular customers also qualify.  Regular customers now using electric heat can  also get the low Electric Plus rate by installing  fuel-fired back-up systems.  Big savings for businesses.  Businesses also save on space, water and  process heating by switching on Electric Plus.  The special 2.5-cent rate applies to the first  8,000 kilowatt-hours a month, reducing to  1.8 cents for additional consumption. We can  help assess savings, and have special financing  for commercial customers.  Convenient low-interest financing.  We will finance residential equipment and  installation costs up to $2,500 at our special  Wk interest rate, on approved credit This  amount is usually more than adequate for home  owners. The loan is conveniently repayable on  Hydro bills over periods up to four years.  Switch now and start saving.  Call your local electrical or heating contractor  for literature and an estimate of the cost of  installing electric heat Or call your nearest  Hydro office for a free, computerized analysis  to show you how much you can save by  switching on Electric Plus.  our innovative heating program  ��BCJHydio  ���������  I  K3  A  D  ���'���)  Hi  in  ft  Switch off high heating bills for oil or propane.

I believe if individual  council members want to, they  can take out individual  memberships," she said, adding  that this particular invitation  could be discussed at the committee level.  Alderman Gerry Dixon, after  Peterson's first motion for  membership was defeated,  made a motion that the letter be  filed but be included in the  discussion of the provisional  budget for next year, and at that  time determine what level of  support the town would give the  society.  The motion was passed and  forwarded to the finance committee.  CHRISTIAN SCIENCE  SOCIETY P.O.

'  "We've closed down office  on the Sunshine Coast. We  don't know for how long,"  Mike Hassard told the Coast  News as he packed up his paperwork at the station's head office  in Squamish.  Hassard received notification  near the middle of November  that he would be laid off at the  end, of the month and now the  local news and information disc  jockey is looking for another  job.  "I'm going to miss the  Coast," he said, noting that  most of his job opportunities lie  in colder climates than the  Wilson Creek job had to offer.  Mountain FM isn't leaving  the coast though. It has recently  applied to the Canadian Radio-  Television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTQ to  boost its Sechelt transmitting  signal (CISE-FM 104.7) from  4.5 to 350 watts and will maintain its transmitter towers in  Pender Harbour (104.7) and  Egmont (107.5). Gibsons is  served by the station's Bowen  Island tower (107.1).  The station will discover  December 7, if its application  has been approved.  Though not being used now,  the Wilson Creek studio will  stay where it is in the event the  Squamish station decides to use  it for summer broadcast purposes.  Mountain FM began broadcasting from the Coast in 1984  out of the Cedar Plaza in Gibsons until it moved its studio to  a portable trailer in Wilson  Creek in July of 1986.

"-  Editor:  Maryanne's article last week  was an admirable expose of an  unjust proposal. I too am ap-  * palled by the irresponsible plans  : of Premier Vander Zalm and  ��� Prime  Minister Mulroney for  '���' privatizing the essential government services in our country. It  is a movement to turn us over  .. like poor bleating sheep to the  wolfish    multinationals   and  greedy racketeers.  Recently, Mr. Tony Blair, a  British Labour Party MP, was  invited to speak to a special conference organized jointly by the  BC Federation of Labour and  '��� the Canadian Labour Congress  , held in Vancouver.  Tony Blair, the Labour Party's privatization critic, said that  in the process, big public  utilities such as British Telecom  and British Gas were turned  over to the private sector as  monopolies. It has meant a  lower quality of services, pay  cuts to public sector workers,  and the replacement of full-time  work by part-time.  "Much of the money raised  from privatization of British  companies," he said, "has gone  for providing tax cuts for the  wealthy." He stressed the point  that the ordinary people of  England are beginning to realize  the extent to which privatization  has damaged their health,  welfare and everything else. He  emphasized the fact that all the  basic services everybody needs  must be under public ownership  and be accountable to the  public.  My son, John, in England  has written me about the tragic  effect of Margaret Thatcher's  parsimony towards one of  England's finest old public  utilities, the London Underground. I used it regularly when  I was there. I remember the  posters advertising it. 'Frost and  snow on the earth abound but it  is warmer underground'. It ran  on several different levels, was  clean, inexpensive, and  although it carried enormous  numbers of passengers daily,  was never over crowded. People  were urged to carry small  children on the escalators, also  small dogs who could have their  little toes caught in the  mechanism.  When I heard of the terrible  fire in the underground station,  I had not feared my son would  be trapped in it. He had told me  he seldom travels on it any more  because the trains are dirty and  unpleasant due to neglect and  lack of funding by the present  government and Mrs.  Thatcher's plan to make public  services 'stand on their own  feet'. He says now it is coming  out that the maintenance staff  at  King's  Cross  Station  had  been cut from sixteen down to  ten, and cleaning staff from  fourteen dawn to two. They  know now that the fire which  took thirty lives started from a  cigarette dropped in accum-  mulated rubbish.  The media has reported that  the Iron Lady paid a visit to the  spot and praised the brave men  who had saved the lives of  others. I am revolted by the  hypocrisy of that woman.  The tragedy has raised a scandal of course and a public inquiry has been appointed to  look into government responsibility in the matter. In my  son's words, "I am, beginning  really to loathe the lot of them.  They have all been coached in  their television manners and all  Mrs. Thatcher's ministers have  the same air of smug, self-  confident sincerity, mixed with  condescension, which they use  for telling us that things are getting better and better, and for  stone-walling any unwelcome or  probing questions."  I remember when the  Honourable W.A.C. Bennett,  the grandfather of the Social  Credit Party in BC, bought up  two privately owned companies  in our province. BC Electric  became BC Hydro and the little  old Black Ball Ferries became  our huge BC Ferries, both much  valued public utilities. Why  must we reverse our history?  I am glad the sensible people  of our coast are combining to  oppose privatization.

Its attraction to tourists was  plainly evident to all located as  it was on prime tourist real  estate in Lower Gibsons. In  turn, it enhanced the area and  served to attract tourist dollars  to our community.  The business replacing the  Hunter Gallery is another story.  Apparently a food store is to  locate in this prime location  despite the presence of a supermarket a few doors away and at  least two convenience stores in  the area.  Another food store can only  attract customers at the expense  of the others in competing for  local dollars. It will not create  new business nor will it serve to  attract tourists. It can only corn-  pound the already tight parking  situation in the area.  Another food store there is a  step backward in the town's attempt to become a more attractive, interesting, and prosperous  tourist centre.  I am surprised that the town  council and the Chamber of  Commerce have not found  some way to influence the  development of Lower Gibsons  to the advantage of all.  Herman B.

This important program  which provides transportation  to and from doctor's appointments, both locally and in Vancouver, has received minimal  funding since its inception some  five years ago. This has led to  the Volunteer Action Centre  taking over the program, in  order to prevent its demise.

It is a time for reflecting over  the closing year and setting new  goals for the year ahead.  1987 was an exciting year and  a time of positive change for  our province. It was a year of  great accomplishment and  achievement. I trust that 1988  will bring continued success.  As your Social Credit MLA  for MacKenzie, I look forward  to hearing your ideas and suggestions. In the past year I have  travelled throughout the riding  and have had the pleasure of  meeting many of you. I look  forward to meeting as many of  you as possible in 1988.  Once again, I would like to  wish you a Joyous Holiday  Season.

Dated December 2, 1987  Dark Cove Marine Ltd.  call 885-3930  Editor:  I recently listened to a.radio  program which addressed .the  problem of private laboratories  which test pap smears. Originally the technicians were paid a  straight, salary. But, the company, looking at the bottom  line, decided that they could get  more productivity, thus higher  profits, by paying the technicians by piece work. So the  more tests they screened the  higher the wages. The workers  cannot afford to spend time on  each test and double checking is  out of the question.  Consequently, the lab is now  being sued by a woman whose  .pap smear came back negative,  > when in effect, it should have  read positive.      -  \ This lab is'in "the United  States but don't kid yourself,  the same kind of service will  soon be available in British Columbia.  Some things can be privatized  but the health and safety of  British Columbians should not  be jeopardized by a profit  motive.  Brenda DeGraag  Thank you, Don  Editor:  I would like to thank Mr.  Don Douglas for his many  faithful dedicated years of service to School District 46 (Sunshine Coast).  Mr. Douglas has been a  stable anchor to many a storm  over the years.  It has been a pleasure to work  with Mr. Douglas as a trustee  and a friend. He was always  honest and fair and there when  he was needed.  Mr. Douglas you shall be  greatly missed by those you  served so well.  May you have many, many  years of happiness iii your new  endeavours.
