Gibsons Council says that  ways to try and make present  noise by-laws more enforceable  will be dealt with at Gibsons  Planning Meeting on December  "As it-stands the current bylaw can't be enforced by  police," says Alderman Norm  1 Peterson.   Residents   have   to  make a formal complaint before  anything can be done. Then the  matter is settled as a civil action  , by a court of law.  "We could possibly look over  the by-law and see if,there's any  weak points in there that we can  cover easier," suggested Peterson.  Georgia Beach near Gibsons  Bluff was cited as an area where  beach parties sometimes get out  of hand. "We've been meeting  with police to see if they can get  more patrols to help keep down  the noise."  In Gibsons  .      i.r j.i-rfffHii,    i i   iimi'IMULi-VW''I.mhJ.

Take the case of  Allan Baker who lives on his  boat, beached in Gibsons harbour.      \  "I (don't think you have the  right to tell me to get off the  beach!" said an angry Baker  addressing Gibsons; Council  November 18.  "The understanding'.;.ofV.me  arid boat livers in Gibsons is  that the harbour master has the  say. You told me that if I came _  to the meeting and needed a  week to repair my boat.I would  ; be given it."  Mayor Diane Strom tried to  shed some light on the matter.  "We're the people put here to  make everybody in the community feel welcome," Strom  said.  A letter hand delivered io  Baker November 13 per: Gibsons Municipal Council informed Baker that his boat was  within a waterlot lease held for  recreational purposes and that  he was in trespass. The letter  went on to say that Baker's boat  must be removed from the  waterlot immediately and that  . failure to comply would force  the municipality to impound the  boat, at his expense.  Baker went into Gibsons  municipal offices and told  clerk-administrator, Lorraine  Goddard that repairs would  take about a week. Goddard  said that if Baker could provide  a definite period of time needed  to fix the boat, that would probably be okay.  Ken   Collins,   speaking   on  Baker's behalf said that the  foreshore lease is for the protec-  ttion of all residents.  I   "if you, ��� Mr_ Collins had a  boat broken down you'd have  itime to fix it," said Strom.  Collins said that council is  walking on egg shells and that a  person's civil rights should not  be- violated."We've had a  number of complaints from  people who live around here,"  continued Strom, "it's nothing  against Baker. But when a  vessel sits for well over a month  it's council's way of informing  Baker to make repairs on his  boat."  Baker told council that the  only people who complained  were those who didn't want the  boat right in front of their  house.  Mrs. Agnes Myers, who's  house overlooks Baker's boat  said that the boat had been  there since summer and she was  concerned about a possible  health hazard. "Apart from sitting in our front yard I just  think it's unsanitary as heck!"  "We were concerned that  high tides could endanger  Baker," continued Strom! In  reply to a letter read to council  by Collins pointing out that  people all over the world watch  the Beachcombers television  series in which the Town of  Gibsons rescues people from  one   calamity   after   another  In Sechelt  Strom said "You might have a  character like this in a series  but, my god, you don't have to  live like that!"  Baker insists that the Town  of Gibsons does not have any  water rights where his boat is.  "As I understand it, they do  and they don't," said harbour  master,^ Harry Smith, "but it's  still a public harbour and he has  a right to be there for a certain  period of time."  Smith is sympathetic to the  idea of what it would be like if,  there were a dozen people living  on the beach, but his understanding is that Baker is trying to get  money to fix the boat. "I don't  know why they have to put the  pressure'ofi him."  Goddard said that there's a  letter in a vault from Lands,  Parks and Housing in Victoria  that says Gibsons has a waterlot  lease andftheineforeJtW  sibility t^sblye^the problem.  Gibsons Council still wants to  know how long its going to take  Baker to make repairs on his  boat. Baker says he doesn't  know how long it's going to  take Baker to make repairs on  his boat;: Baker says he doesn't  quested to see Baker.  "I just want to find out what  the problems are. I'm going to  have a talk with him," said Dixon. '   ������--.

Anne  Langdon pointed out that  although council had decided  some time ago that they would  spend a day together without  telephones and interruptions,  time had passed with no date  being set.  Langdon suggested that the  group should fly to Nanaimo,  spend the day and night there,  and return the next morning.  Alderman   Ken   Short   said  that while he agreed that it was  important that council get the  time together, he was "not into  going off the Coast. This is taxpayers' money we're  spending." ^  Alderman Langdon informed  council that she had received the  offer of a free flight, however  Short maintained "I just feel a  little uneasy about the cost of  these things and I'd have to  voice some objectons to jaunting off for an overnight trip off  the Coast."    ,  When Alderman Graham  Craig voiced agreement,  Langdon insisted "On behalf of  the three people on council who  work I'd like to point out that  unless you go away you don't  gel away."  It was agreed that Alderman  Langdon would look into the  matter further and set a date  early   in   Januarv'  Sechelt   Municipal "District  will be sharing a building inspector with  Gibsons  for the  time being, council decided at  ; last    week's   meeting.

However, Jones is actually on  vacation- for   the   month   of  December and during that time  both municipalities will need to  hire the services of the Regional  District's inspector.  Alderman Mike Shanks expressed some reservations at the  arrangement, saying that he'd  had complaints from contractors about the delays in inspections. Some, he told council,  had ended up taking pictures of  work done for proof, and proceeded with the next stages of  work.  He admitted, however, that  the complaints may have been  about situations which occurred  some   time   ago   and    was  ter of appreciation frontst,ne  Sandy Hook Porperty .Owjjrjfcrs'  Association last week, hf^the-  letter, John Johnson ihamc'cd  council tor the donation.:! of  flowers from a. surplus ihe  village had this summer which  were planted in the vicinity of  the public launching ramp'and  cared for by associatibn  members. $v-  Alderman Herder presented  another letter to council com-,  plimenting the work of the road  crews and asked that it be filed.

Public hearing waived  Sechelt Council voted to  waive the public hearing process  at Wednesday's meeting and  give first reading to a re-zoning;  application by Halfmoon Bay  Developments. Administrator  Malcolm Shanks informed  council that this was possible  because the re-zoning was compatible with the official Community Plan for Sechelt.  The re-zoning will affect four  lots iri the area of Inlet Avenue  and Trail Avenue, permitting  the building of townhouses  where  previously  only  single  family dwellings were allowed.  This area was recommended  as a medium or high density  housing area in the Community  Plan.  Sechelt Municipal Council  has voted to set aside $630 from  the parks budget for grants to  the Figure Skating Club and the  Elphinstone Wrecks Hockey  Club.  On the recommendation of  the Finance Committee, council  will be making grants of $330 to  the skating club and $300 to the  hockey club.  Well-known local authors Betty Keller and Peter Trower held book-signing sessions last week in Sechelt  and Gibsons. Trower's latest book of poems The SUding-Back Hills, and Keller's On the Shady Side are  on sale locally as ideal Coast Christmas gifts. ���Ray Smith photo Coast News, November 24,1986  fi  I  Aquaculture  re-evaluation  That there will be aquaculture on the Sunshine Coast,  and in B.C.'s future, is a certainty, and if this inquiry is  successful, though its time is short, maybe the negative  aspects can be minimised and the undoubted possible  benefits realised.  The noisest and most assertive voices raised in the early  days were the voices of those who will not or cannot  understand that to trample over other people in your haste  to make a fortune is to ensure bitter conflict and an enduring residue of ill will.  On the other side are the voices of those already trampled on, driven to excess by the obvious callousness of some  early developments and the insensitivity of the provincial  government in its haste to be associated with a glamourous  new industry after a recession and on the eve of an elec-  ';���. .tion. -���  Rampant and dishonest greed and injured rage will  neither of them take us forward. It is time for the voice of  enlightened moderation to be heard - and listened to.  Sechelt retreat  We side with those Sechelt alderman who feel that to  take the taxpayers' money and spend it in Nanaimo so that  the council members can talk to each other is a pretentious  waste. The suggestion comes from a source which has  specialized in such pretension and such waste.  The last local body that travelled afar to have their  meetings were the administrators of School District 46 led  by former Superintendent John Denley. Their safaris,  complete with hospitality suites at taxpayers' expense in  North Vancouver whichwe objected to at the time, cannot  now in retrospect not be said to have assured the smooth  running of their resporisibility.  Neither will spending the dollars of the Sechelt taxpayers  in Nanaimo do anything whatsoever for the district  " municipality of Sechelt.  An apology  The poem which we ran in our Armistice Day issue has  been strenuously objected to by the executive of Gibsons  Legion Branch 109 as highly inappropriate.  Taste and judgement in these matters is a highly individual thing.  Suffice to say that the poem was written by a local lady  who is herself a veteran of the Second World War, as is  her husband, and both are long-time members of the  Royal Canadian Legion.  It was assuredly not the intention of the writer, nor of  the editor who chose to use the poem, to do disrespect to  the memory of the fallen. 7  ., ..We, apologized the sensibilities of some were offended.  5 YEARS AGO  In an extremely narrow win, incumbent Mayor Lorraine Goddard,won the mayoralty election in Gibsons  with only four more votes than her opponent, Alderman  Larry Trainor.  The long simmering controversy of Cooper's Green  seemed to come to a conclusion last week when the  regional board overturned the recommendation of Area  B director Peggy Connor that the issue be tabled and  voted to re-zone the balance of the property to commercial.

East Porpoise  Bay, above, is a regular hive of industry as supplies and equipment  are shipped from there up Sechelt Inlet. ���John Bumside photo  Whither aquaculture?  There has been, perhaps,  more mud and stones than clear  water run under the bridge of  local public discussion on the  subject of aquaculture in the  past few years.  The sudden, unheralded appearance of a full-blown fish  farm in front of residential lots  in Wood Bay'last summer put  an end to a period when almost  everyone was welcoming and  supportive of the new industry.  The present moratorium and  upcoming public' hearings are  indication enough* that things  have begun to gq, a'w(ry.in the  glamorous new industry.on4fie  s ,Wesy��oa��t of .Canada. ,.,,,,  ;'"   it. may;be m_ae_.y toreittaRale a ,  which have been off&j^f^ore  in this paper and isomer appropriate public |cfr)pis^. y  The hysteri^l^ghlywing  would have us^believe that the  regional board as the local body  most closely inyblyecl is peopled  with knit-progressive cretins  who are trying to strangle this'  great hope of a prosperous  tomorrow; ���'���'������  In fact, the politicians on the  regional board, being as human  as anyone else and perhaps  more so being politicians and  alert to the whims of popular  opinion, have erred on the side  of reckless and generous support bf the industry. Politicians,  whether in Victoria or Sechelt,  are anxious to be associated  with an exciting success story  and never more so than after the  bleak years of the recession  which so recently held us in its  grip.  I cannot forget the self-  satisfaction   with   which   the  Peace notes  board members accepted Planner Geoff Powers' suggestion  that the new planning by-law  should have a Wl zone in which  all aquaculture activity would  be permitted. They believed at  that time that settled and exposed parts of the coast would be  free from activity and that the  business of fish farms would be  conducted in secluded coves far  from view and. that they, as  politicians; would be seen to be  in the vanguard of progress.  Improved fish pens which  could withstand the battering of  open water and the Wood Bay  appearance changed all that.  Then, led by new boy Gor-  dqn-Wilspn, the SCRD reversed,  positions and tried to zone fish  farms out of existence in the Wl  zone but Victoria was still enthralled and getting zoning bylaws changed that Victoria  doesn't approve of is a near impossibility. Meanwhile the gold  rush mentality held sway as people rushed to make their fortunes in this piscatorial Klondike of ours.  There are in my view, consistently held, two simple solutions to the question of  aquaculture vs. residences and  tourism.  First, there is the question of  due process. Victoria has a  long-standing[policy of consulting those who will be affected by any significant  changes. That policy was circumvented by the fact, in the  Wood Bay experience, that one  former regional board employee  knew months in advance about  the proposed Scantech operation and withheld the information from his employers because  he didn't believe in regulation,  in fact had sold the Sunshine  Coast and B.C. waters generally  to overseas investors as an  unregulated haven. A planner  who was consulted by Victoria  contented himself with surveying the Wl zoning map which  allowed aquaculture and didn't  inform his directors.  In the subsequent Wood Bay  hullabaloo Victoria was apparently persuaded that the  regional board was unnecessarily hostile to the new industry.  The Wilson-led about face on  Wl zoningconyin^d^h^that  this was.so:., .y., ;;-STT"-._"-.:���.--.'v  Tlie loss of confidence of the  sehiot govepijnent in what had  been traditionally seen as due  process was coupled with a  failure to learn from those areas  where fish farming has been extensively practised over time.  In arguing against zoning  solutions, again and again in  public meetings and in this  paper I pointed out that what  was crucial was a question of  scale.  Norway has found that  modest-sized fish farms were  the most profitable. The most  labour intensive, and the most  environmentaly undamaging.  Instead of playing around with  zoning by-laws, and arguing  with Victoria about that, the  locally elected officials should  have been, and should still be,  pressing for a consideration of  the Norwegian experience and  asking for limits on the size of  fish farms.  Of course, there will be the  predictable screams of outrage  from those who see their interest,  which  is making vast  amounts of money quickly, being frustrated by such govern- ���  ment regulation. But the alienation of the entire foreshore and:  the progressive destruction of';  the environment is now seen as  a real possibility without regulation and such screamers should:  be brought to heel without  delay.  We have been told again and  again at every step of the way  since the beginning by prominent local aquaculturists that if  they did not get immediate apv.  proval for their every whim the/  new industry woud be mortally'  wounded? This should 'surely  now. be recognized Jbr what it  has alwas been "-^Self-serving  clap-trap.  The argument, then, is that  we don't need involved new  zoning by-laws whether to approve or disapprove of  aquaculture. We need consultation and due process between  different levels of government,  a recognition of the.fact they  have been played off against  each other by would-be instant  millionaires, and we need to  give serious consideration to the  question of scale, both in terms  of what the environment can  withstand and what nieghbours  can accept. :      . "  As a postscript, let's dismiss  the oily assurances of the big  boys of the industry that if the  environment suffers they will be  the first to notice. Maybe so,  but they'll be off somewhere  else with their millions leaving a  despoiled environment behind  them for the rest of us to deal  with.  The need for Canadian Sovereignty  by Alan Wilson  J  The consensus emerging from  the True North Strong and  Free? Inquiry in Edmonton was  of the need to redefine Canadian sovereignty by shifting  away from involvement in an  integrated continental defence  with the US.  Former Canadian Ambassador to the Soviet Union,  Geoffrey Pearson said that our  top priority must be to prevent  nuclear war. He argued that if  US plans for SDI (Strategic  Defense Initiative) were indeed  holding up an arms agreement  with the Soviet Union, then the  Canadian government should  oppose the project without  reservation. He made the same  point about cruise missile  testing in Canada.  Even Brigadier General Don  Macnamara agreed that "the  real enemy to Canada today is  the potential for nuclear war.  There is no one country at the  present time that is the enemy".  Unfortunately, due to our  close ties to the US, Canadian  foreign policy tends to mirror  theirs, even when it may not  always be in our best interests to  do so.  Bob Penner, Co-ordinator of  the Canadian Peace Alliance,  argued that the Canadian  government should support the  Soviet moratorium on nuclear  testing and push the US hard on  this issue. "We aren't doing  enough," he said. And he added that "Canadian disarmament policy can be summed up  in three words: lack of  courage."  Penner urged a non-aligned  status for this country, a position that defence expert  Gwynne Dyer later advocated  strongly.  Dyer described the position  of Finland as .a non-aligned  neighbour of the Soviet Union,  and argued that Canada should  consider a similar role with  respect to the United States.  Although some concerns were  : raised about the economic effects of this move, with the US  having the potential to strangle  Canadian business, Bob Penner  pointed put that "If Nicaragua  .and New Zealand can do it,  jCanada can do it."  .' In sharp contrast to this position, Ralph Lysyshyn of the  Department of External Affairs, advised the continuance  of good relations with the US.  He argued that working within  our alliances enables us tp have  some moderating influence on  US actions. It gives Canada a  voice, however weak, in the  councils of power, he said.  But retired Canadian Major  General Leonard Johnson questioned this stance. He pointed  to the lack of results and cited  frequent votes by the Canadian  government in the UN against a  comprehensive test ban and  against other disarmament  measures.  Questioned on this, and the  Canadian support for the US  position at the Iceland summit,  Lysyshyn explained that the  government feels there is no  sense "bashing our head against  a brick wall" of US intransigence. It is better, he said,  for Canada to retain 'credibility' with the US and a place at  the negotiating table.  But William Arkin, of the Institute of Policy Studies in  Washington DC, disagreed saying that our influence on the US  has been 'little or none'.  At the same time, Arkin  stressed that Canada's strong  resistance to SDI is essential.  We must be clear, he said, that  ."SDI is a dangerous offensive  move."  He also warned of the "constant deception about Canada's  involvement in SDI" and the  development of a highly in-  tegrated continental aerospace  defence plan under NORAD.  "Canadian territory will be used  for SDI whether the Canadian  government likes it or not.''  Executive Director of the  Canadian Centre for Arms  Control and Disarmament,  John Lamb, agred that SDI and  particularly the cruise missile  deployments, are part of the  "dangerous Western policies  pushing Moscow into expansion."  George Ignatieff, Chancellor  of the University of Toronto  and former UN negotiator,  reiterated the demand that  Canada have strong independent defence policy. He emphatically stated that, "We  must not abdicate our  sovereignty to the US. We have  to stand on Canadian vital interests."  Citing an occasion when the  US command had actually put  the Canadian military on alert  . against the wishes of Canadian  leaders, Ignatieff argued that  "NORAD has to be placed  under responsible political control. Either NORAD comes  under the NATO council...or  we leave NORAD!"

For each one  per cent of popular vote, Social  Credit elected one MLA for a  total of 47. For each two per  cent of the popular vote, the  NDP elected one MLA for a  total of 22. At that rate the  NDP would need 70 per cent of  the vote in British Columbia to  elect 35 members and become  government. Some hard-line  Social Crediters might say that's  good.  I am not one to cry over spilled milk. What I am writing  about today is the fact that  Social Credit gave some areas of  B.C. - and in those areas only to  Social Credit voters - a loaded  vote.  This is reflected in the  number of votes cast in the  'new' two member Social Credit  seats. An argument cannot be  sustained either on geography  Planning a  Christmas Party?

What I challenge you to do  today is to appoint (with the  support of the Loyal Opposition) an unbiased and reputable  Electoral Boundaries Commission charged with the duty of  drawing the boundaries of  single member seats for B.C.  and properly enumerating  voters.  Five per cent difference in the  popular vote gave you a majority of 25 seats!  In most civilized activities  that is called cheating or stacking the deck. ,  When speaking about  parliamentary democracy for  British Columbia in March of  this year, you, Mr. VanderZalm, told the Kamloops  Chamber of Commerce, "It is  totally antiquated...it is really a  bit of a farce. Most elections  mean another dictator for three  or four years."  The people of B.C. want to  preserve the basic democratic  institutions of the province. I  urge you to give democracy  back to B.C., early in your  mandate.  Jim Fulton.iMP  Skeena  Harvest Fair thanks  "FAMILY CAR YOU'LL LOVE!"

Her motto must have  Cbeen, "if it needs doing, I'll get  \xight at it.'" And she has left  ^friends in areas widely scattered  ��over the province, friends who  ���'feel a real sense of loss.  .*   When Pearl Trethewey First  '"met Ada in 1934, it was in the M  !*& T Logging camp far up the  ^wilds of Harrison Lake where  /���this   new   little   mother   was  ^holding her own, long before  ;. the days of high tech air and  Cwater transport. Ada also leaves  ��many friends in the Chilliwack-  �� Rider Lake area.  ;*    Then in 1938 the Farnhams  '"moved to a logging camp up  [.Sechelt   Inlet.   In   1940   they  | bought the property beside the  %ibId' elementary   school   and  ���^started a small dairy where Ada  Hnade    friends   of   all    her  '^customers as well  as all  her  Neighbours.  By this time she  ; had four little girls and was frequently on her own because Bill  kwas still logging,  from  Half-  v$i_oon Bay to Gambier Island,  t- About   1950   .hey  sold  the  \?dairy herd and bought a taxi so  Cthat   Bill   could   work   from  ���*nome. Later they( bought a se-  J;ond taxi and Ada worked with  '���*him. But Bill contracted tiiber-  Jculosis, had to have a large part  * of one lung removed, and spent  ra year or so in a sanitorium.  ^Meanwhile, Ada Went right on  P_he with the show, running taxi,  *4r'<\  raising a garden, canning, sewing, keeping children in school,  producing her own butter and  milk products, and being a good  neighbour.  One lady remembers her  opening her home and heart to  a little" motherless family in the  neighbourhood. Another recalls  that when Grandad Farnham  was all alone and very old and  was going to be put in a  "home", Ada would not hear  of it. He moved right into her  home and was an honoured  member of her family until he  died at the age of 101. Someone  else remembers Ada's work for  the Farmer's Institute.  In 1961 Bill and Ada moved  to Bridge Lake for a stint at  running a resort with cottages  and boat rentals but they had  too many ties to the Coast and  in 1966 left good friends in  Bridge Lake to come back here  to live in the bay area and make  more new friends and a garden.  However, the dry, sunny interior was always a call and in  1978 they moved to Oliver and  made a brand new set of friends  and, as usual, a garden. Just  days before her death, Ada got  out of her sick bed and took the  Hollands out to see her garden.  One sure thing to be said; is  that no matter where Ada went,  and how many new friends she  made (because she always did),  she never forgot the old friends,  and they never forgot her. Ah  yes, Ada, there are dozens of us  who need not ask "for whom  the bell tolls".  Cap College offers  high school courses  Capilano College has an  adult high school upgrading  program which provides a  number of basics for people  wanting to finish high school or  to pick up subjects which they  don't have now.  The program is open now for  daytime or evening classes on .a  full or part-time basis. Students  work at their own speed.  Depending on people's motivation and background, students  coming into the program with  Grade 10 or 11 can complete the  Grade 12 level within about  eight months.  The adult high school program is open to anyone who is  over 17 years of age and has  been out of school for a year. In  practise the program has  students from 18 to 60 years of  age, from a variety of  backgrounds.  The courses give the student  access to other programs in the ���  college (on Inlet Avenue), and  let's them take advantage of services like the library, the  counsellor and study skills instruction - all free of charge. Information is also available on  other course possibilities to aim  for once the basic high school  courses are complete.  John Pass, co-ordinator of  the adult high school program  says "For many students this is  a way in to education...a first  step. Once they have opened the  door, all the other doors are  'easier. -r "'���:  . v '^Stydents not only; pick*;^  academic;; skills, they pick up|,  confidence and a feeling of  accomplishment," says John.  "Often too, in discussions with  counsellors and, instructors  students are able to; get a focus  and a direction they have lacked  before, and they find their  future gradually falls into  place."  The adult basic education  courses are necessary for entry  to other subjects and fields. For  instance, business management  requires strong English and  Math basics and good communication skills. Students can  pick these up at the Sechelt campus before proceeding somewhere else. Some students go on  to another course at the Sechelt  location like the Office Technology program; students have  also gone on to dafting, vocational training or to academic  studies at other colleges. About  600 people on the coast have  gone through the high school  courses since they were first offered by the college.  For as little as $42 for a term  students can get started right  now in one or more subjects.  There are currently openings.  Interested people should call the  Sechelt campus at 885-9310 between 12:30 and 7 p.m. to talk to  an instructor or get more .  general information.

Members and  guests.  The wine and beer competition begins at 3 p.m. on Saturday. There are three categories  for the wine (red, white and  rose) and one category for the  beer. Bring a bottle of each wine  to be judged and three bottles of  beer. r  Incredibly, Stella; doesn't  have enough people to judge the  wines. That's hard to believe in  Roberts Creek! Phone her at  886-7370 to volunteer for this:  very pleasant duty. * ' V A. _���: y  -And starting at; 10 a.m. on  Sunday, a Grey Cujj. brunch of",  pancakes, eggs-, j sausage; and  bacon will be .served for the  modest price of'$2.50.

ELECTION CONGRATS  Congratulations to Brett  McGillivray on his election to a  third term as Area D's Regional  Director. Obviously his record  spoke well for him.  Care Centre  asks for help  Carol Jefferies asked Sechelt  Council at last Wednesday's  meeting to make their support  of the TLC (Tender Loving  Care) Centre more tangible in  the way of a $1000 grant. Jefferies explained to council, that a  one time, start-up grant would  be arriving from the Canadian  Mental Health Association  before December 1, but that  would only be enough to pay  the rent for four months.  The $1000 that the centre was  requesting from Sechelt would  cover the cost of utilities and  phones for that time. "I just  need four months without  financial pressure to find out  and apply for government  grants that are available," she  pleaded.  The TLC Centre, which was  featured in last week's Coast  News, moved into the old  firehall on November 1 and is  operating with volunteer help.  When questioned about other  possible sources of revenue, Jef- .  feries assured council that she  would be approaching Gibsons  Council and various service  clubs in the immediate future.  Council referred the application to the Finance Committee.

Roberts Creekers will no  doubt receive some flak for  voting down dog control when  the rest of the areas wanted it.  We certainly have our share of  dog problems and would like to  see something done about it but  evidently not at the price  quoted.

Before the meeting  started Mrs. Marie Clarke gave  a few words of thanks on behalf  of the residents, which were  greatly appreciated by all present.  After the minutes and various.  committee reports were read,  the most successful results of  the Bazaar were announced. It  was then immediately decided  to have next year's Bazaar at  Sunnycrest Mall again the first  Saturday of November, 1987.  Trudy Holding has volunteered to take over the corsages  for the months of January and  February  from  Celia Media,  who is away much of the time  on business.

Perhaps  one of them manned the ambulance for a fast trip to St.  Mary's, or greeted you with  refreshments at a meeting of the  Wildlife Society.  Pam and John Hedderson  are two quiet, hard-working  people whose capable, reliable  talents have supported a  number of Harbour community  groups for years.  You may know Pam's friendly smile from the Clinic or the  Bank of Montreal, and perhaps  John held the hose that kept  your chimney fire from becoming serious. The Red Balloon  Preschool,   Pender   Harbour  Church   Women,    Harbour  Lights   Orchestra   and   the  Diabetes Association are only a  few of the groups for which  Pam and/or John have worked.  Pam comes from a pioneer  family   in   Wood fibre,   while  John came from Ontario. The  Heddersons  were   the  second  couple married in St. Andrew's  Chruch,    and    their    two  daughters, Lisa and Julie, were  both baptized there.  Al! the work you do in the  Harbour has not gone unnoticed, Pam and John, and we want  you to know that we appreciate  you!  TAXI!  Keep the flyer that arrived in  your mail recently near the  phone, so you'll know the  number to call in case you need  a taxi.  The Harbour has long needed  a local, readily available taxi  sendee, and now Wayne Coleman, in conjunction with  Coast Taxi, has a lovely clean  car right here in Garden Bay.  Twenty-four hour service is  available through  the dispatcher,   so   keep   the   number,  885-3666 handy.  POT-LUCK DINNER  Even flickering lights and  stormy weather couldn't keep  students and their families from  having a great time at the  Pender Harbour Secondary  School's Pot-luck Dinner last  week.  A hungry crowd, including  our new trustee, Al Lloyd, enjoyed a delicious dinner, most  of which was prepared and served by Foods students under the  capable direction of Margaret  MacLaren, Home Economics  teacher.  Thanks   to   Marg   and   the  students for a super evening!  ENROLLMENT  After their participation in  Remembrance Day services, the  Pender Harbour Guides held an  enrollment for eight new  Guides; Jade Christian, Amo-  rena Roberts, Kim Struthers,  Pepi Smith, Kristen Howe,  Kristina Reagh, Amber Nelsen  and Sarah Malcolm.  The girls are off to camp next  weekend at Camp Olave. Wef  weather doesn't stop the Girl  Guides.

Hydro to repeat its  warning to the public of the  hazards of downed power lines.  Anyone seeing a line down  should warn others to stay clear  and call Hydro immediately. No  attempt should be made to  move lines, even if they are  blocking a roadway.  "The public can't tell if the  wire is a high-voltage line or not  and wires that appear dead may  not be," says A.F. Polok, Acting District Manager.  The possibility of a power  line falling on a vehicle is of  special concern and motorists  should be aware of the proper  safety procedure.  "Stay where you are, warn  others to keep away from the  vehicle and have someone call  Hydro or the police," says  Polok. "You'll be safe as long  as you stay in the car, but if you  must get out, leap free of the car  with no part of you touching it  and the ground at the same  time."

You can't meet the changing needs  of a growing community unless you  put down roots among the people you  serve. That's why Credit Unions have  more branches in more communities  in B.C. than any other financial institution. Because we're owned by the  members of the communities we serve,  we're part of the community, and its  concerns are our concerns.  Unlike other financial institutions,  Credit Unions keep their deposit base  working in the community, supporting  local businesses and sponsoring a  wide variety of community programs.  And like our communities, we're growing with pride-today, there are close to  300 branches of 130 Credit Unions,  both large and small, in 150 communities around B.C. Through their  local branches, almost one million  members enjoy the guaranteed security  and full range of competitive personal  services Credit Unions offer.  Pride and purpose.

The   executive   were  elected by the membership on  November 17 at the fourth annual meeting of the auxiliary at  the Sechelt Legion.  [ The installation with the traditional candlelight ceremony  vas performed by regional representative   Sharon   Lawson  from   the   Lower   Mainland  '^'Region.

Each area still has its bran-  fches, the working groups that  fare the mainstay of the auxiliary. All are working for the  ^good of the hospital and the  ^comfort of the patients,  came  from  ��**    Reports  fe| presidents of the branches, for  p* Pender Harbour, Jean Dale;  p| Halfmoon Bay, Mary Mac-  |||donald; Sechelt, Peggy Gallos;  ^Roberts Creek, Olive  !���� Nicholson; Gibsons, Jean  |g|Clark; and Hopkins Landing,  ^Margaret Nielson.  _  |$ This is the first year that the  || Thrift Shop and the Gift Shop  ^joined together for the election  \��of their officers by the whole  ^membership of the Auxiliary.  $&. The choice for the Thrift  was President, Dorothy  Vice-President,   Amy  gShop  jN^Bruce;  Zeron; Treasurer, Allison  Steele; Secretary, Billie  Rodgers; Executive Officer,  Mary Mcdonald.  The Thrift Shop is a big  money raiser for the auxiliary  and entails a great deal of work.  It is only with the help from all  the branches that, it is able to  operate.so effectively.

Vivian Teeporten bowed out  as Volunteer Director as her two  year term was up. Vivian was so  well qualified for this job she  will be missed from this post.  Now the job is to find a  replacement.

Pauline is a lady who pui in a  lot of time in volunteer hours  toward this hospital. The auxiliary appreciated this and made  a presentation gift to her and  Bill.  A recent addition to services  is the Loan cupboard previously  handled by the registered  nurses. It is now an auxiliary.  function headed by Bertie Hull,  with the help of several men  members.  The beautifully laid-out buffet lunch was by the Sechelt  Legion Ladies and much enjoyed by the 123 auxiliary members present.  Each branch contributed two  gifts that were drawn as door  prizes, then a draw from a  brown bag entitled the winner  to the floral arrangements on  the tables, the work of Carmen  Grassie.

Margaret Gemmell, our Volunteer Co-ordinator, reported  that 2225 hours had been worked by the volunteers at Shorncliffe during the past year.  Committee reports were read  i and all agreed that there is a  need for more active volunteers,  especially in hairdressing and  �� one-to-one visiting.

There is a happy hour every  .day,- weekly outings, cooking,  ^.crafts, games and bingo at least  once a week.

The students spoke  of the many 'neat' things he had  done and of how much his  friendship had meant to them.  Emphasis was .placed on the  fact that Erin's school friends  never thought of him as the  fellow in the wheelchair, he was  just one of the gang!  Erin's mother Katherine,  spoke on behalf of the bereaved  family expressing their gratitude  for the loving and caring shown  by his friends and teachers.  She asked them to get over  their grieving soon and to  remember Erin with happiness  as he would have wanted ihem  to do. More importantly, tb get  back with new enthusiasm to  their studies' for graduation.  "Go for it and achieve your  goals," she said. What better  advice could she have given to  these young people.  -" I ast Saturday's -pub night  saw some 30 -members and1  friends 'getting together for a  social evening and a pleasant  evening was enjoyed.  1 Ne.xt affair [s, of course, jlic.

Trustees instructed  Holmes to get the information  at Tuesday's School Board  meeting after Dave Mewhort  brought up an October 14 news  release from Tony Brummet,  Minister of Education.  In the release Brummet announced that' sThe ministry will  provide school districts and independent schools with curriculum materials to implement  or expand child abuse prevention programs in their schools.  A process will be worked out  for providing necessary in-  service training for teachers and  administrators to use the  materials effectively."  Mewhort also talked about  Courtenay's program which involved training all the teachers  in the district, not only those  who would be using the kits, in  order to increase the awareness  level   throughout   the   school  system. All the trustees were enthusiastic about that approach  to the problem that has haunted  the Sunshine Coast school  district for the past two years.

JjKerouac, who single handed-  ly^ (and inadvertently), spearheaded the literary phenomenon  called the Beat Generation  which exploded into the Hippie  liloyement of the latter 60's,  became a hapless victim of his  4 wri notoriety. Much like Dylan  'fhomas and other bibulous  Writers before him, success was  fCerbuac's downfall. He was  (^uite unable to cope with his  own, self-created myth.  { Tom Cl&rk, a published poet  and novelist himself, has written  the most sympathetic and searching account yet of Kerouac's  manic journey along a road of  dreams and reality that led, in  ihe   end,  to estrangement,  disillusionment and death. The  b^ok is entitled simply Jack  Kerouac (Harcourt Brace  |&vanovitch) and Clark, in  !|feping with the unvarnished ti-  jj__, eschews both sentimentality  echelt  and hero-worship to paint a  graphic picture of a highly  talented, dangerously naive  writer who jousted with his own  demons and lost.  Clark divides his book into  five sections: 'Visions in the  Lowell Night', 'A Wild Road',  'Writer', 'Wandering Bhikku'  and 'Fame'. This ground has  been covered many times before  but Clark brings a poet's intuition to Kerouac's stumbling  saga.  The device of separating  Kerouac's life into five stages is  a logical one and it works well.  The first section deals with his  working-class, mill-town chM-  hood, a. dream haunted, generally happy period, marred by  the death of his sickly older  brother, Gerard. Kerouac  would mine these early years for  several of his books, including  the surreal fantasy, Doctor Sax.  The second part covers  Kerouac's earliest writing at^  tempts, his move to New York,  initial contact with such pivotal  friends as Allen Ginsberg,  William Burroughs and most  importantly, the wild Denver  street product, Neal Cassady,.  who lived his life in overdrive  and would provide inspiration  for two of the writer's best  by Larry Grafton  j$lrhis will be my last column  ���*���k"  utnnir  ;ipr to the big fund raiser of  | year, our annual Christmas  zaar on November 29 at 1:30  hall.

Kerouac took his  first cross-country journeys during this period. Eventually, he  wrote and published his first  novel, a conventional work called The Town and the City.  The book made only a minor  stir. Kerouac continued to travel  and write. Gradually, he evolv-.  ed the method of sketch-writ.  ing, he called "spontaneous  prose", which became respectively, On the Road and Visohs  of Cody. This phase of his life is  .^rait;'-''Wlth^:-:uhder.'y;the title  f^'Writer'.^-'y;"'';���:'":i;-r\y <���'.������������.-  The fourth section of the  book, 'Wandering Bhikku',  covers Kerouac's several year  obsession with Buddhism. He  dreamed of a 'rucksack revolution" and hung out with poet  and Chinese scholar, Gary  Snyder. Ths dalliance resulted  in The Dharma Bums and two  books on Buddhism which have  never been published.  'Fame', the final segment,  begins with the long-delayed  publication of On the Road in  1957, that rocketed Kerouac to  instant notoriety. Ironically,  Kerouac found himself quite incapable of dealing with the  turmoil of being a cult figure.  This was compounded by the  fact that his work, while highly  popular with the general reader^  was svaged by the so-called  literary establishment. Each  subsequent book that Kerouac  published was subjected to  critical abuse and inevitably, his  cult status waned also. Always a  heavy drinker, the embittered  writer retreated further into  alcohol and died a forlorn death (  at 47.  In the perverse way of things,  Jack Kerouac today, has received his posthumous due and is  now recognized by most critics  as the. important American  writer he sincerely believed he  was.  Tom Clark fleshes but  Kerouac's legend with much  new data and draws a more  honest picture of the hag-ridden  "King of the Beasts", than any  of his previous biographers.  The book also contains a wealth  of previously unpublished  photographs. It is a must for  anyone interested in modern  literature and one man's troubled journey through its wilder  reaches.

Forest Service was speaking  about the Mount Richardson  and Gray Creek Recreation area  out of Sechelt. He added that it  is to everyone's benefit to -in-  quire about conditions before  ..

He added, "Conserve your  body heat. It is to be hoped you  have a space blanket with you,  or a.big plastic bag to make a  poncho. At least huddle in any  shelter you can find and keep  -dry. You lose heat 200 times as  fast when wet."  Arid Gordie Skertchly gave us  a few more tips. "Take a map  with you when hiking, and a  compass. And take matches and  a candle." '  Not much extra baggage is it?  Oh, and load up with common  sense.       y  Some of the Search and  Rescue team highly recommend  the booklet Wilderness Survival  published by the B.C. Forest  Service, a manual on enjoying  the outdoors and staying alive.  It is a small encyclopedia of  information on survival  psychology, finding direction,  and using signals to name just a  few topics. Take a copy along to  read-while you await .the Rescue  team.  THRIFTY NIFTIES  Gwen Robertson has told us  that a group of volunteers will  open a Thrift Store on  December 2, their aim to aid the  Food Bank.  Their shop will be located  above Ken's Lucky Dollar.  There will be a tea and a fashion  show of "thrifty nifties" on  opening day.  "The store will also provide  some training in merchandising  and record keeping for those  who could do with the encouragement of jobs," said  Gwen.  y. The Thrift Store is looking  for donations of usable items  for its stock. Anything to spare?  GRAD NEWS  Two Elphinstone grads who  have been schoolmates and  friends for 20 years held their  own anniversary get-together  recently.

The important point about the  re-dedication of this cenotaph,  Ross agrees, is that it is not  forgotten and is being  thoughtfully cared for.  MORE ON 'BURMESE'  A postscript to the item in  this corner last week concerning  the RCMP's gift of the mare,  'Burmese', to Queen Elizabeth.  "Just one little error in last  week's item," said Inspector  Dick Smith, returned briefly to  Gibsons to move his family to  Ottawa. "You say the sire was  of equable temperament.  Wrong! That stallion was the  meanest, most uncertain animal  I came across in rriy time with  the ride."  Those weren't quite the inspector's words but they are a  discreet interpretation.  Back to Coast Books  (formerly the NDP Bookstore)  and a peek in the Kelly's book,  The Horses of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. And the  text plainly says 'Burmese's' sire  was even-tempered.  Timber sale  A tender opening on a standing timber sale on five acres of  town property at the top of  Henry Road will be decided at a  Town of Gibsons meeting,  December 2.  "I just want to make sure  that a minimum figure of  $15,000 is what the timber is  ^worth," said Alderman Norm  Peterson. "There should be  some input from the taxpayers  of Gibsons and I want to see if  there's an environmental impact."  . Petersori is seeking the input  of a government scaler to walk  the property.

Here Ripley discovers a survivor, a small girl called Newt  who, through great courage and  ingenuity, has escaped the fate  pf her parents and the other colonists. Newt awakens Ripley's  maternal instincts and she takes  the little orphan under her wing.  ������v;,The-alieris continue to harrass  the group and more Marines are  killed. It is finally decidedUto  evacuate the planet and1 nuke  the site from orbit. But an alien  gets aboard the space shuttle  and kills the pilot. In the subsequent crash, the shuttle is destroyed, leaving the diminished  party stranded on the deadly  surface of Acheron.  Ripley and the others barricade themselves in one of the  buildings and try to figure a way  out of their hellish predicament.  There is a second shuttle on the  mother ship that can be activated by a radio signal and  brought down on remote control. Unfortunately, i&^ com .^  munications room is located in  a different pdrt of the complex  with a horde of ravening aliens  in between. The android Marine  agrees to crawl through a conduit to the transmitter and attempt to bring, down the shuttle.  He sets out on the dangerous  mission.  Meanwhile, a particularly  tenacious alien finds its way into  the barricaded building, seizes  Newt and carries her off to the  nest. Ripley, is shattered, but initially she writes the girl off for  lost. Then she remembers Newt  telling her that the aliens do not  impregnate their victims immediately. Perhaps there is still  a chance.  The android makes it through  to the transmitter without inci-  eggs as she goes. With the  furious mother alien in hot pursuit, Ripley and Newt make it to  the elevator and head thankfully back to the surface. But there  is no sign of the shuttle and a second elevator is coming up. The  alien has obviously learned how  to work the buttons.  Just as the second elevator  reaches the top the shuttle appears, piloted by the android.  As Ripley and Newt leap  aboard, the maddened alien  comes storming from the elevator. The shuttle leaps  skyward and heads for the orbiting spaceship.  The shuttle docks and the  thankful survivors emerge. Only Newt, Ripley, the android  and one wounded Marine are  left of the original expedition.  At last they can relax - or so  they think. They have not  reckoned with the vengeful tenacity of the mother alien. Clinging to the outside of the shuttle,  the monster has ridden up with  them.  Ripley is caught off guard  and without her weapons.  Thinking quickly, she activates  a robot-like loading machine,  designed to multiply the  strength of a human many  times. Operating this machine,  Ripley is able to actually engage  the powerful alien in hand-to-  tentacle combat. In the ensuing  struggle, the android is torn in  two by the raging monster.  Eventually, monster and  machine topple into the space-  lock pit. The alien lands on the  bottom, breaking Ripley's fall.  Ripley struggles free, climbs out  of the pit and triggers the lock  mechanism, jettisoning both the  machine and the alien. (Almost  my only quibble with an otherwise excellent picture is the. use  of this similar device'from the  first film.)  i^ifr any event, the menace of  dent and the second shuttle is   _ .r, ���. _,  , ������..��� ,   brought down.

And so I and my equally overworked co-worker did. The Casa Martinez Restaurant in Davis  Bay is a place I had to try and it's reputation for fine  cuisine prompted me to go in that direction.  We were seated in a cozy alcove warmed by an enormous fireplace and the Amicable waiter, to our surprise  and delight, found some toys to occupy our kids.  Choosing from the Casa Martinez's varied and tempting  menu was not an easy task. The appetizers offered an interesting selection but at last we decided on Stuffed Fresh  Mushroom Caps and my friend chose the. Caesar Salad.  For our main dish the war was on between who would  order what. Specifically the Gambas a la Plancha (prawns).,  sounded excellent but I relented since I was undecided between that and the Poulet Valencia.  The service was unhurried which we both appreciated  after a hectic and chaotic day. The appetizers arrived and  what a delight they were. The mushrooms were stuffed  with baby shrimp and covered.in a delicious sauce. The  Caesar salad received a similar rating.  Then on to the main course. The Gambas a la Plancha  had the most impressive amount of prawns on the plate.  It's flavour was equally impressive! The Poulet Valencia  was a taste delight, two tender chicken breast fillets, surrounded in red and green pepper strips, olives, artichokes  and mushrooms. Both meals were served with fresh broccoli, cauliflower and potatoes.  We then pampered ourselves with the luxury of dessert.  The kids without hesitation chose the vanilla and orange  sherbert ice cream, while I chose the white chocolate  mousse pie, and my friend chose the creme caramel flan  with a tangy orange licquer topping; Everything was  superb.  Tlie good graces of the waiter made the night. I would  say that the Casa Martinez goes highly recommended for  those with gourmet tastes.

Coast News, November 24,1988  soccer underway on Coas  The Sunshine Coast Youth  Soccer Club started its season  on September 27. There are  ihree age divisions this year, six  and seven year olds, eight and  nine year olds, and 10 and 11  year olds. We tried for a 12 and  13 year old age group but didn't  have enough players sign up. To  make up an age group you need  at least three teams and each  team should have 15 players.  All the age divisions have had  at least tour games each. The  league only keeps records of  wins, losses and ties with the  eight and nine, and 10 and 11  year olds. The six and seven  year olds play mini soccer and  arc non-competitive.  This year we have four  students (three in Grade 7 and  one in Grade. 8) refereeing the  eight and nine year old division  in Sechelt. These kids need sup  port from not only the coaches  but the spectators also. So, in  the interest of the game, and in  setting an example for the  players, don't yell at the referee.  Each week 1 will try to put a  rule of the game in this column.  Goal Kick. When the ball is  last touched by the attacking  team before it goes over the goal  line (excluding the goal line between the goal posts) it results in  a goal kick for the defending  team. The ball has to be kicked  directly into play beyond the  penalty area (18 yard line) from  a point within the half of the  goal area nearest to where it  crossed the goal by anyone until  it crosses the 18 yard line. If the  ball doesn't make it out of the  18 yard line or it is touched by  someone else in the 18 yard line  then the goal kick is retaken. If  the kicker touches the ball outside the   18  yard  line  before  WL  4 1  anyone else touches it then an  indirect free kick is taken by the  attacking team.

Having lived with a Hawaiian  friend for some time I was picking up an entirely new way of  understanding the guitar from  his unschooled approach to  music. He played music like I  had never heard before.  A day came when I heard  Ramblin' Jack Elliot was hanging but on the island, somewhere   in    Lahaina   (Maui).  Although I had never heard of  this guy, someone told me he  was considered by many to be  'the son of Woody Guthrie and  the father of Bob Dylan', which  sounded interesting. Anyway,  he was supposed to be a legendary guitarist in the folk music  world.  It happened.that my friend  f had. pile *6f- his" ialbums,,, called-  Young Bringham, and I spent  .that whole evening listening to  Jhat album in a Hawaiian state  -of mind.  The next morning I set out  from our country home to hunt  this guy down on the other side  of the island. Some of the excitement of seeking out hot  players like I did back in the sixties had stuck.  It was later that evening in  front of the only nightclub in  Lahaina (The Maui Belle) that I  spotted the character and set  myself up in a spot where he  would have to walk past me to  get in the door.  When he approached I stopped him and introduced myself  as a local musician.  He asked me if I knew of  someplace good to eat and that  was my cue. I invited him over  to my girlfriend's house a few  blocks away, and she made up a  great meal while we talked  about music and got into a  Hawaiian state of mind, relaxing with my guitar.  A friend dropped by who  owned a beautiful sailboat, and  he and Jack took off talking  about ships, which, as it turned  out, was the musician's  favourite subject. He proved  quite knowlegable about the  history of sailing ships, and I  iturned on my tape recorder  While settling back to play some  relaxing Hawaiian style guitar  as the boys rambled on into the  night with their tales.  Jack was on the island for a  week, having just come off a  Japanese concert tour with the  Cat Stevens show.  In the course of that week, we  set up two club engagements  which we shared the billing for,  and had other sessions at  friends' houses wherein we  swapped licks (guitar styles) and  stories.  And Jack had some stories.  Meetings with Leadbelly, Bobby Dylan and Kristoffersen (he  told me Kris wrote Me and Bobby McGee about Dylan, and  taught me the song), Woody  Guthrie and many others  known and unknown who had a  place in his history. He was really into documenting his life at  this time and one of us usually  had our tape recorder going  during these sessions. I still have  three old tapes from that week  in 1973, which I listen to occasionally.  Jack commented tongue-in-  cheek to me one night that he  "only .knew five*chordis^and/"  just played 'em over and over  again in different order. If  you've ever heard Ramblin'  Jack Elliot play the guitar you  realize what a joke that really is.  This guy is a master finger-  picker and plays more notes in  one bar that I ever knew were  there. His playing is absolutely  amazing and he rambles along  singing and telling long stories  about horses and drunks while  the music takes on endlessly different textures behind it all.  He commented once that a  guy he knew named Billy Faire  played more music than a symphony orchestra on his five-  string banjo, and I would say  that about Jack's guitar playing. He also has an uncanny  ability to pick up on a situation  and make up lyrics to his guitar  playing about what is going on  around him.  Hence - 'Ramblin' Jack'.  He changed my perspective  on guitar considerably that  week, opening up the world of  'folk' music to me. Elliot taught  me such songs as Don't Think  Twice, It's Alright and Tennessee Stud, which were finger-  picking masterpieces. I was really glad I went to the effort to  hunt him down.  When I played him some of  the music my Hawaiian friend  and I had been working on, he  put down his guitar and said (I  have this on tape): "Man...you  play music like I've never  HEARD before...".

Safe ferry  by Penny Fuller  The election of a new MLA  and the appointment of a new  Minsiter of Municipal Affairs  and Transit may give the Sunshine Coast Regional Board a  new chance at having a 10:30  a.m. ferry sailing reinstated.  Area F director John Shaske  told the Regional Board at the  meeting on Thursday that he intends to pursue the issue with  Harold Long and asked the  board and board members to  start writing letters requesting  the additional sailing.  Shaske had just received a letter from the past minister  responsible for the Ferry Corporation, Rita Johnston, in  which she rejected his request  for the 10:30 a.m. sailing. As  reasons, Johnston cited the additional cost of approximately  $800 per day in fuel costs.  But Mr. Shaske told the  board that the ferry sits idle,  burning fuel and fully staffed at  that time and he believes the ad-  di tonal cost would be more in  the area of $600 per day, a cost  which would be covered by the  additional traffic.  It was agreed that a letter  would .be sent from the  Regional District and each pf  the board members as individuals to new MLA Harold  Long and Cliff Michaels, new  Minister of Transport, urging  them to reconsider the issue.  Shaske also urged the public to  write to their MLA demanding  that the 10:30 sailing be  reinstated.  & Company  Barristers  & Solicitors  General  Legal Practice  For motor vehicle and accident  claims call Brenda Brown  Sixteenth Floor  Sunlife Plaza  1100 Melville Street  Vancouver, B.C.  683-6631  There is no charge  for our first meeting;  please call us collect.

The existence of Canada is  based upon its natural resources  and its population, but it is far  from coincidental that the  drastic increases in the cost of  living over the past few years  has been accompanied by an  equally drastic increase in corporate profits.

Which means I'm making  3.96 cents per litre or 18.05  cents per gallon on regular leaded gas, w.hile unleaded makes  me a profit of 4.18 cents per  litre or 19.6 cents per gallon.  I'm making one cent a gallon  more than what I was 25 years  ago.  Now we get down to the brass  tacks. This section is a long and  boring one, so you may want to  grab a cup of coffee to keep  your shattered nerves together.  The best way to explain is by  saying that the Canadian  Federal Government feels that  the oil and gas users pay for the  privilege of driving their vehicles  from point A to point B. In  theory, the user pay principle  may make sense, but in practice  it is unfair and foolish.  Example: Freight Tax.  The fuel barge first caters its  services to the east coast pf Vancouver Island, then makes a pit ;  stop in Powell River and  various other stops along the  Sunshine Coast before it finally  gets to Hopkins Landing.  The service stations on the  east coast of the Island and  Powell River pay 20 tb 30 per  cent of the freight tax allotted,  while we here in Gibsons pay  the remaining 70 to 80 per cent.  Now I ask you, "Is that fair?"  In order for the average person to understand the  philosophy of corporate rip-  offs, we must use the so-called  energy crisis years of the early  1970's as the example. It was  Complaint  The Department of  Consumer Affairs  940 Blanchard Street  Victoria, BC  Dear Sir: y  I wish to call your attention  to the price of gasoline On the :{  Sunshine Coast. It is approx- y  imately 26 cents per gallon more |,.  kthqn in^anc<_ ii^  transit tax is included;_Go,Ea^tK? $$  West, North or South and^oii  s  will find the price p�� gasoline  generally equal to, or less than,  the Vancouver price.  We are in a geographical '".  position that offers a perfect  set-up for the big oil companies  or their minions to collect 26  cents mOre per gallon than is  equitable. The only way in  which we can get cheaper gas is  to bring it in on the ferry. There  is a danger, here, a rear end collision could wipe out a ferry and  many of its passengers.  We do hope that you will  look into this.  .  Harry Gregory  Disgusted  Editor:  I wish to add my concern and  disgust to the reply that has  been received to the letter re Gas ..  Prices on the Sunshine Coast. It  seems to me that we have a  monopoly set up by the gas stations here.  This is a very serious state of  affairs. I expected a lot different  from Petro Canada when they  opened their station but it is the  same old story, everybody holds  the same price.  I travel to Vancouver regularly and there is a spread of three  to four cents per litre compared  to our prices here, and this is for  full service! i    ���  Donald P.

We are grateful to those  who made pledges and helped  boost our total amount collected.  One special thank you and  that is to the young man visiting  here from Australia who came  as   a   spectator   but   gamely  entered to help make up a team.  Faye Hansen   ,  Chairman  Heart Curl-A-Thon  during these troubled years that  the Canadian Federal Government began taking action to  control the oil and gas industry,  Petro Canada so that Canadians would be the real owners  of these resources.  The same reasoning may be  extended to control in. the same  way of the mining, forests and  food processing industries. The  cost of paper, building materials  and housing skyrockets each  year because of the rush to sell  these products to the highest  bidder in foreign markets experiencing shortages. The Canadian Consumer can either go  without or pay the ransom.  So we have the Canadian  consumer heavily subsidizing  these corporations with scores  of direct grants plus all the corporate tax rip-offs now being  forced to pay artificially inflated;,  prices for everything from toilet  paper to building products if  you get them.  This sudden surge ih world  commodity prices and the resultant windfall gains make imperative the effective use of corporate tax policy to direct  economic activity, provide  governments with revenues,  fairly distribute Canada's  natural wealth and control the  multi-national corporations.  Surely, it must be clear to the  most pedantic free-footing  capitalist that something in the  present system has gone  cockeyed.  One final foot note: in 1973,  our energy shortage years, Shell  reported a net profit of $112  million dollars while Imperial  Oil reported a measly $228  million. So if our ex-mayor or  anyone else thinks that the service station owners are getting  rich quick or ripping off the  public, I think that it's about  time you faced the many  realities of our capitalist system,  next time Lome, get your facts  straight before you condemn  the little guy on the letter of  democracy.

Who Qualifies?  You'll automatically receive an advance payment of $300 per  child if you meet the following conditions:  ��� Your net family income in 1985 was $15,000 or less,  ��� You have a dependent child or children who will be under 18 years  of age on December 31,1986,  ��� You received a child tax credit this year for that child or those  children.  Why is the government doing this?   The advance payment, a part of the child tax credit, is designed  to assist over 750,000 low-income families with children. Among  other things, it will reduce the pressure on these families to discount  their child tax credit cheque.   What about the rest of my credit?       To receive the rest of your 1986 child tax credit simply fill out the  child tax credit form on your 1986 income tax return. The maximum  credit per child is $454.00, up from $384.00 in 1985.  And if I don't qualify for the advance payment?  If you received Family Allowance for a child or children this year,  you may still be eligible for a maximum or partial credit. To find out,  simply fill out the Child Tax Credit form on your 1986 income tax return.  For more information    See the insert in your'November Family Allowance cheque or  contact your nearest district taxation office.

["It's your life," says Saturn.  ���' "Be miserable if you want to."  ; Those of you who haven't  ! married or who didn't wait until  you were 29 to divorce, will find  yourselves less content with the  'swinging singles' life. You may  start noticing that your interactions with the opposite sex are  shallow. Women may start talk-  Thinking of Christmas?

It is not uncommon for  the wildest party-goes to suddenly settle down and start  ordering Pampers by the case-  lot during this time.  The second Saturn return brings up issues very much like the  first. Again you may be examining your relationships. You see  yourself approaching retirement  and think of all the things you  haven't done, all the places you  haven't seen. You may feel  abandoned by your children  who won't be spending Christmas with you. You may think  about death a lot and start an  itemized list of unfulfilled  dreams.  Your reaction could be to  quit your job, leave your  spouse, buy a red sports car or  join some obscure religious sect.  Or you could decide to stop  building up an inheritance for  your grandchildren and use  your hard-earned money to bring some romance and excitement back into your marriage.  You could run off to New  Zealand for Christmas, take  night classes or start writing that  novel you've had running  around in your head for 58  years.  The challenge of a Saturn  Return is to look at the limitations in your life and adapt your  fantasies around them. Don't  discard the dreams.  If you've always dreamed of  being a movie star but you're  still slinging hash at the local  truck stop, you may want to  start a stringent savings program that will enable you to  move somewhere for special  training. Or you may have to  resign yourself to being a late  bloomer on the Hollywood,  scene and direct your energies in  the meantime to working with  the local amateur group and  raising your children.  If you realize that, in spite of  all your hard work, you probably won't retire with a million  in your savings, maybe it would  be worthwhile to invest some of  that money into a holiday now,  when,you need it.

A meeting has been called on December 2 at the Driftwood  Inn to discuss plans and new ideas from the public. All are  welcome. Coffeee and refreshments will be served.  On October 23, 1986 the  Canadian Radio-Television and  Telecommunications Commission (CRTQ authorized Coast  Cable Vision Limited to increase their monthly service  rates for cable subscribers from  Halfmoon Bay to Langdale, by  a total of $2 per month.  The CRTC authorization  allows Coast Cable Vision to increase its rates from $10.50 to  $11.70 per month immediately,  and to add a further increase of  80 cents (bringing the total rate  to $12150 per month) once  Coast Cable's microwave  system is licensed and operational.  The microwave system,  which has been under construction since early this spring, will  import television signals  originating in Seattle and  Tacoma from Vancouver via  Bowen Island. The microwave  system is being established at an  approximate cost of $350,000  including the relocation of  Coast Cable Vision's receiving  site at Sechelt.  Microwave delivery of Seattle  stations KOMO-TV-4, KING-  TV-5, KIRO-TV-7, KCTS-TV-9  and Tacoma Station KSTW-  TV-11, will mean improved  quality and reliability for Sunshine Coast viewers of these stations. The microwave system  also allows for the importation  of other signals, such as KCPQ-  TV-13 Tacoma and a selection  of10.15 FM radio stations from  Vancouver.  Coast Cable Vision has also  announced that soon after the  completion arid implementation  of the microwave system, CBC  French language television programing will be introduced on  the cable dial. It will be  necessary, due to the number of  channels carried on the Sechelt  and Gibsons cable system, for  some cable subscribers to acquire a cable converter to enjoy  the full selection of programming to be made available.  The  last  increase in  cable  rates on the Sechelt Peninsula  was authorized by the CRTC on  October 18, 1984 and implemented by Coast Gable Vision on December 1, 1984.  ^fc^.__f_^-.p^yK��ft_^  GIFT ITEMS    TOWELS  BATHROOM ACCESSORIES  ��� Kitchen & Bathroom Cabinets  ��� Bathtubs ��� Ceramic Tiles ��� Sinks  ��� Jetted Whirlpool Tubs  ��� Counter Tops ��� Hood Fans ��� Toilets  Come view our new showroom  SUNSHINE KITGH ENS  KERN'S PLAZA Hwy 101, Gibsons  (lower level, off School Rd.)  886-9411  -.#$_^._S8_^_tfS8*_$BS^^  HOURS  Open Daily 9:30 - 9  Sun. & Hoi. 12-5  our Grand Opening was  a HUGE SUCCESS  Quintessence Beautyrest ':-Vj  Mattress & Box Spring-J.

One is about help being given. The other  is a request for help.  The name of our society is Sunshine Coast Community Services Society. It is commonjy referred to  as Community Services!  Several years ago the need for a Community Service Agency was recognized by representatives of  Hospital, Human Resources, School Board, Health  Unit/Mental Health Association, United Church,  Retarded Children's Association and the S.G.A. Sunshine Coast Regional Council.;    -y;  Community Services was formed and undertook)  to do the social planning for the Coast, rather than?  have decisions made for us by others. As you read;  this paper, you will be impressed by the social,-  educational, transportation and health services we  have been able to encourage and co-ordinate.  ';' We serve well those who are handicapped, elderly, physically and mentally abused, sexually abused,  poor arid in need of friendship and support. For  : these we provide counselling, safe refuge, transportation, specialized care and volunteer support. We  stretch_'-' tax dollars to maximum effect and our work  is preventative, which saves dollars in the long term.  Without Community Services or an organization  like it some services would fold. Several different  societies would form, each competing for volunteer  and financial help.  Community Services is run by a working Board.  People are attracted to this Board not for prestige,  but because of a sincere belief in the value of the services we provide. They receive no remuneration,  not even mileage for the hours of time put in.  Four years ago, calls for service were mounting to  the point where even hard-working volunteers  could not cope. The executive recognized the need  for a paid coordinator, a costly but necessary expense if work was to continue.  At the same time, restraint on government spending put further pressure .on Community Services.  Less money...greater need...Community Services  was well aware that problems untreated do not go  away, but only become worse, ultimately requiring  more time and expertise to solve and, of course,  more money.  . We have over-extended ourselves and provided  more and more services with little or no funding.  The question must be asked. Is helping each other  in an organized and economical way a priority in  our community?  Dollars donated by you and the organizations you  support will be put to the very best use helping,  others right here on the Sunshine Coast. Government provides basic costs in most areas, and client,  fees help. However, we need your dollars to tie it  together. Please help, you will find a form in this  paper. Thank you for past and future support.  jS/JX"*^  m  i  ._v.  I  I  If  & ,  lilt  'I ������!

Meals on Wheels - feeding the elderly  Tea and toast...toast and tea...and a muffin on  Shoppers' Day - that is the diet of many elderly or  disabled persons who live alone or find themselves  unable to cope with buying and cooking nutritious  meals.  But thanks to the dedicated volunteers of the  Meals on Wheels organization, any person who  qualifies can haveya tasty; hot nOonday meal  delivered to their home on Monday, Wednesday or  Friday. The meals are prepared in the immaculate  kitchens of Kiwanis Village Care Home or St. Mary's  Hospital, where the chefs and helpers go all out to  plan and pack the best meals; they know how, %   ....'���  Who qualifies fo^Meals oh Wheels? C^o^io^tdr =  Susan Thornpsori says the guidelines are fairly simple,   y '.-'.... ; y_       .-���������  "Anyone who is convalescing, anyone who is  elderly and not good ^at making meals is eligible,"  explains Siisany "People can call this service  themselves, be referred by a doctor^ health nurse, or  home support worker."  The Department of Veterans' Affairs has recognized the value of this service and will pay for Meals on  Wheels (as well as other support services) to  qualified veterans. If you are a veteran a call to your.  local branch of the Royal Canadian Legion will be:  rewarding.  Volunteer drivers visit six to fifteen stops on their  route. Some drivers have been delivering meals for  almost six years arid have formed strong attachments  with their people. y;  The Meals on Wheels program started with a small  provincial grant to pay for the cost of insulated containers. Like all volunteer organizations, money is  always a problem. For three years Meals on Wheels  has been operating on a grant from New Horizons, a  much appreciated Federal program. Now that is  coming to an end.  The customer pays $3.40 per meal delivered. This  covers the cost of the food and tlie disposable containers. Administrative costs have to be borne by the  Community, helped- by a:small grant from the  Ministry of Health.  Meals on Wheels has flourished under Community Services but because it is so obviously a service  primarily to seniors, it is now merging with Home  Support Services. It will still need public support;  "Local governments, industry, service clubs,  organizations and private donors have all donated in  the past to make Meals on Wheels a really great service," concluded Susan Thompson. "We owe them  our heartfelt thanks. However, we still need help."  Order:Meals .on Wheels by calling 885-5.44.

Our .Minibusis a familiar sight as it trundles  back and forth between Gibsons and Sechelt. It is  also seen in some very out-of-the-way. places.  Transportation Manager/Roy Dick,iexplains why.  "The bus operates on a schedule of four trips a  day Mondays to. Fridays. Some trips are routed along  the highway and. some along Beach Avenue and the  Lower Road in Roberts Creek.  <yln addition; handicappied and disabled persons  who require dpor-to-door service can be picked up  at their homes. We also transport many seniors to  Aldersprings Day Centre in Gibsons On Tuesdays  and Thursdays, and to Sechelt on Wednesdays.  "You may also have seen us on Fridays at St.  Mary'sHospital taking some of the Extended Care  patients for ah outing."  In Mr. Dick's view the service is in desperate heed  of expansion. He has to refuse many requests.  "We cannot run on Saturdays, Sundays or  holidays;" he says, ''and many handicapped people  in wheel chairs wbuId loye to go.to,some events in  the evenings, which we cannot cover."     -  Roy Dick is quick to say how much the present  service is appreciated. It is operated as a Paratransit  Transportation system under a joint funding contract  with B.C. Transit and the Sunshine Coast Regional  District.  The ten-passenger unit is leased from B.C. Transit.  It is designed to carry up to four wheelchairs and  from four to seven passengers beyond the chairs.  Paratransit implies a combined public use and door-  to-door service for disabled and handicapped.  "If you need door-to-door service," suggests Roy  Dick, "just call us at 885-5881 and give us your  name, address and the nature of your disability. We  will keep your name on file."  "Then call us to tell me when you need to be picked up and returned. We will do our best to accommodate you." He added, "But do let us know as far  ahead as possible."  Schedules.appear on Channel 11 Coast Cablevision  and in  local  papers.  Getting around with Volunteer Drivers  One of the facts of old age and illness is the heed  to keep doctor's appointments. Not everyone has a  car, not everyone lives on the bus route, not  everyone can arrange appointments to match the  bus schedule.  If you live on the Sunshine Coast you probably  know that you can keep your medical appointments  regardless: ��� There are 14 volunteer drivers from  Madeira Park to Gibsons, waiting to help you  of need. Every driver is registered at the Community  Services office in The Dock, to ensure that they have  adequate insurance and a well-maintained vehicle.  These drivers donate their n'nrie'and the use of  their vehicle but are reimbursed for mileage arid out-  of-pocket expense such as ferry fare and parking;  The client is billed for these small costs. Community  Services picks up the administration costs.  In the past year the office has arranged 76 trips  totalling 3860 kilometres on the Coast, and 57 trips  to Vancouver accounting for a further 4940 kilometres. Trips are arranged by phoning the dispatcher at The Dock. The Volunteer Driver program is  one of the least heralded and one of the most commendable under the Community Services umbrella.

": ' f y   '-  Home Support Services - looking forward  to new and exciting challenges  "It's just like a young person growing up and leaving  their family/'yexplains Martha Scales, who, with the  Home Support Committee, administers a service which  has a budget of approximately three-quarters of a million  dollars. ,  ,'  Independence is planned for March 31, 1987. After  that, Home Support Services will be known as the SUNSHINE COAST HOME SUPPORT SOCIETY. It will be independent of SCCSS; both agencies approve of the  move to independence.  In 1978 the provincial government instituted the Long  Term Care program. It enables elderly persons, handicapped individuals and people in ill health to stay  home and remain independent. Evens the taxpayer benefits. The Ministry of Health provides 94 per cent of the  funding. But on the average, one month of care* in a  home is less costly than one week in a. care facility and  less costly than one day in an acute care hospital.  We asked Mrs. Scales just what a home support worker does in a home. "Only the things the person is not  able to do for him/herself, the main goal being that we  encourage independence, not dependence." Home  Support workers are a part of a district team of home  care nurses, social workers and other professionals.  Their duties vary with every client."  "You tune in on all this help by contacting Long Term  Care at 885-5164," explains Martha^ "QhCe^theneed for  service is established, a nurse makes a home visit to  discuss specific needs arid what ha  assign a suitable home support worker."       ;  In response to a question asto.what supervision is provided, Martha assured us there is bngbirig supervision  and. consultation to keep services equal to heeds. The  confidence people have in this remarkable service may  be judges by these statistics.  in the office on the second floqr of The Dock in Sechelt will; be found Marlene Dorah and Jpan Vernon,  field supervisors; Mary Ptichalski, placement supervisor;  Judy Fitzgerald, senior bookkeeper; Judy Eldred, assistant bookkeeper; Kathy Taylor, part-time field supervisor  and Martha Scales herseif. It is a busy office. They handle  up to 100 telephone calls a day.  The Home Support Services Committee, which will  form the nucleus of the board for the new Sunshine  Coast Support Society, at present includes Jim Kirkland,  Jean Lubin, Barbara Estey, Eloise Yaxley, Louise Hume,  Gwen Robertson and Rich Mennie.  What do the persons being helped think of this service? ".^their help;_rriental; and physical, is more than  appreciated..." "My health and general well-being have  improved considerably..." "My husband has  Parkinson's disease, and without this help I could not  manage to keep him home..." "Home Support Service is  an important and vital service in this community and  your entire organization is to be commended..." "To my  mother, who is a stroke victim, this service has proven to  be invaluable..." '  As the Home Support Service leaves the Community  Services Society, it offers public thanks to the parent  organization for guidance, perseverance and its encouragement in the Home Support Service's move  toward independence. It looks forward to continuing to  give good serviceto the coast from Egmont to Port  Mellon. "Together.we will move forward to find out and  servethe needs, each in accordance with our particular  mandate," declares Martha Scales. "The future looks  both challenging and exciting."

But the caring Transition House staff don't sit around  -waiting for 'phone calls. They conduct workshops and  make presentations to community groups and schools.  "Our educational program is so important," Janice explains. "Approximately 80 per cent of our residents  come from violent childhoods. Perhaps 60 per cent have  experienced sexual abuse as children."  A weekly support group for women, held at the Mental  Health Centre was attended by 15 women during the  year. Plans for an eight week group dealing with violent  relationships have been made for January, 1987.  The staff has increased its knowledge and developed  professional skills in working with victims of abuse by attending workshops, among them: 'Children in Violent  Homes', 'Child Abuse Identification and Treatment',  Leading Adult Survivor Groups', 'Feminist Counselling  Skills'.  Asked what kind of problems residents have to face,  Janice lists: physical abuse, serious injury, rape by  spouse, emotional abuse, low self-esteem, fear of further  violence, threats to children by spouse, destruction of  property and financial problems.  .        .    ���   ���    ��� ���:.*���"���  The Sunshine'Coast can take pride and comfort in the  work being carried out by.the Transition House staff and  its supporters.  Buckling up baby made easier  On March 1,1985, the Provincial Government made it  mandatory for drivers to buckle up babies and toddlers  as well as adults and children. Car seats for children are  expensive and are quickly outgrown. Sunshine Coast  Community Services met this community need by launching an Infant Car Seat Rental Program.  For an outlay of $45 a parent can rent an approved car  seat for nine months. If the seat is returned in a clean and  undamaged condition, the parent gets a $14 refund.  The seats are designed for a maximum weight of eight  kilos or 20 pounds. Weekly rentals require a deposit of  $40 and cost $5 per week.  From Pender Harbour to Langdale, parents are using  our rental car seats. Some are rented by grandparents or  non-parents expecting infant visitors.  Seats may be rented from the Community Services offices in The Dock. .....���-���  Sunshine Coast  Medical Society  (representing the Doctors of the  Sunshine Coast & St. Mary's Hospital)  We salute the  hard work and  dedication of  Community Services  and its volunteers  The following contributors have helped to make this publication possible  Landing General Store Ltd.

Nigel, r/ghf, keeps the cards in  order in a friendly game of bridge at  Aldersprings.  Special children - a special service  Sometimes a child comes.along who just does not  fit society's idea of how a child should behave.  Parents and teachers together do not seem to be  able to impress on such a child the need for  co-operation and reasonable relationships with  other children and adults.  Enter the child care worker. This highly skilled person goes about creating an atmosphere whereby  changes in behaviours which are causing disruption  at home or in the community can come about by  natural cause and effect.  The child care worker provides one-to-one  counselling and support, helps the child to set goals,  assists the child to develop skills to cope with his/her  own problems.  Gwen Carley, coordinator of our Special Services  to Children program, stresses that the child care  worker does not solve problems, but encourages independent problem solving.  Quite often the child case worker is able to head  off intervention by the law, as young clients begin to  accept the patterns of family and school living so  essential to their getting along in the world.  The child case worker obtains support from the  Social Services and Housing Social Worker, who is  the official case manager. She contracts with the  Special Services to Children co-ordinator. Through  the services of a child care worker in the home or  elsewhere in the community goals are set and met  by every strategy available.  "But do not forget," concluded Gwen Carley,  "the child care Avorker who is closest to. the child is  free to work independently and with .creative initiative to bring about the desired changes. We have  them to thank for the success of their work in helping children with special needs on the Sunshine  Coast."  Rainbows at Camp Douglas  Camp Douglas is a church camp complete with  playing field, a hive of activity as campers come and  go. As the autumn clouds gather and the leaves start  to fly, Camp Douglas becomes the Rainbow  Preschool and the building takes on a different  character.  Rainbow Preschool is a parent cooperative  preschool. For over five years, parents have elected  a volunteer executive committee of six, and undertaken all the tasks that make Rainbow a safe and exciting place for kids to play and learn.  Teacher Kari Ellison is highly regarded and a great  help to the participating parents.  Sharon Wood, the kindergarten teacher at Roberts  Creek, is impressed by the children coming out of  Rainbow Preschool: "They are independent, able to  follow directions, wait their turn in conversation  and most importantly, they are ready and eager to  learn."  Over and above fees, funds come from local  grants. A $1,500 grant was gratefully received from  Elphinstone Recreation Club and $200 from Roberts  Creek Legion.  - "Do we have a wish?" Victoria Dobbyn did not  hesitate. "We love Camp Douglas but a year-round-  location so that we don't have to pack up and store  all we own every summer would be  WONDERFUL."  People working together so well accomplish  wonders, and now that the Rainbow Preschool wish  is public, who knows?  6.

Kara,.  left, observes a lesson in  gravity at the Rainbow  Preschool.  The Food Bank - its fourth year  When a Food Bank was started on the Sunshine  Coast four years ago under the auspices of Community Services, it was viewed as a temporary,  band-aid sort of operation. Surely the need would  soon go away. Instead of folding up, the Food Bank  has grown into a full operation with no signs of closing. The need is too acute and too pressing.  After many moves, the Food Bank is now located  in a trailer directly behind Capilano College.. There  people drop off contributions, and there another  300 people receive food each month that will sustain  them beyond the help they get from government  sources. The door opens every other week  -Wednesdays at 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.  Food Bank co-ordinator Maria Lwowski describes  the typical bag as having in it canned fruit, canned  vegetables/canned soup, potatoes, onions, carrots,  two loaves of bread, a piece of fresh fruit, and some  meat. On alternate Food Bank days, some bulk food  is also included.  How Maria does this is not a miracle. It is thanks to  the generosity of people who have enough to spare  Between December 17 and January 7 there will be  no Food Bank. It is hoped that community support  for the Elves will fill the gap, and that no family will  go hungry over the holiday period.  There are no pledges to count on, no grants from  governments. Shop Easy in the Trail Bay Mall  donates bread and a small discount on food purchased. They also kindly permit the Food Bank  donation boxes in the mall lobby, as does the Super  Valu in the Sunnycrest Mall. Some B.C. government  ferry workers offer support through  salary deductions.  The Food Bank is operated by Maria Lwowski and  others to deal compassionately with our fellow men  and women who find their budgets strained beyond  their means. Please phone 885-5532 if you would  like more information or would like to help.  Aldersprings - a friendly place  This is what you can hear: "I don't know what I'd  do without the centre...it gives me a reason to get  dressed and get going in the morning."  "It's wonderful to come here, it's like a family reunion everytime I come."  "The centre has helped me sort out problems and  given me the courage to keep going."  "Once I get to the centre I always feel better for  going."  "I don't get out much and it's great to see friendly  faces and old friends."  Aldersprings Day Centre is a place for seniors and  any others with health related disabilities. The centre's goal is to help individuals to continue to live in  their own homes as independently as possible for as  long as possible.  The staff at Aldersprings make it a caring and enjoyable place to visit. They provide a delicious hot  mid-day meal, exercise and social programs, some  health care, and friendship. They also try to hold  their own with some expert cribbage players.  Aldersprings is open in Gibsons on Tuesdays and  Thursdays at the Alano Club and Wednesday at  Greenecourt in Sechelt. The Long Term Care assess- *  ment team determines who is eligible for the program. To find our more about the service call Community Services and talk to Cathy Bolton, the Service  Manager.

Talking books can replace print  .-,, TV  What .can an avid reader do when the eyes will no  longer pick up the messages from a printed page? When  one cannot even decipher large print books and television is a meaningless blur?  Barbara Mercer has the answer. Books that talk!  "The Audio Book Service," explains Barbara, "provides reading material that has been" recorded onto  cassette tapes by excellent readers. Of course, users  must be able to supply their own cassette player and be  able to handle the cassettes or have someone to do this  for them. Then a huge library is once again open to  them."  Barbara Mercer, a volunteer working out of her home  under the auspices  of the  SCCSS co-ordinates this  wonderful service on the Sunshine Coast. It has become  a formidable task; and Barbara is looking forward to a  well-earned.retirement from the service. T ^ '  ! '  "Twenty-two persons are using this service now," Barbara tells us. "I distribute between 100 and 150 books  every month." ",+  Approximately 200 volumes are available here at any  .one time, of which 125 are out on loan. Some 30 titles  are changed every mOnth. Barbara invites inquiries.  "We can even obtain special requests provided the borrower will accept a reasonable wait. And we can arrange  a loan player if anyone wants to try out our books. I his  would be for a short time, of course."  Telephone Tree protects the independent  If any characteristic applies to all seniors on the Sunshine Coast it is their rugged independence. Literally  hundreds of elderly people are determined to stay in  their homes and gardens, resisting the efforts of well-  meaning and loving friends and relatives to change their  lifestyles for an easier existence.  On the other hand, statistics show that this group runs  the risk of having falls, strokes and heart attacks. The  Telephone Tree helps their independence by alerting  authorities when they cannot be roused by the phone.  The Telephone Tree is one program that really has saved  lives by dispatching help in time.  The daily phone check is made by friendly volunteers  seven days a week. During the daily phone check, if the  client cannot be reached by phone a contact person is  informed. A quick check is made to ensure.that the person has not been hospitalized or is on vacation. If it is  established that the person is not away, an emergency  plan goes into action.  Cathy Bolton, Adult Day Care manager, asked us to  express her sorrow and that of her colleagues on the  sudden passing of Jerry Winram, one of the Telephone  Tree's most ardent supporters.

The parents have an opportunity  to meet other parents oyer -coffee, to hear speakers,  when available, on topics such as child rearing, social  issues, and family health.
