 By acclamation  Wilson becomes  Liberal leader  Gordon Wilson became the  new leader of the Provincial  Liberal Party last week when  nominations closed on Friday,  with his bid for the leadership  unchallenged. His new position  will be ratified at the Liberal  convention October 30 and 31  in Richmond.  Wilson told the Coast News  that his first order of business  would be to appoint a caucus to  advise him on issues of paramount importance. These include: labour, small business  development, education, health  and social services, energy, environment and regional development.  Although there are no seats  held by the Liberal Party in the  current legislative assembly,  Wilson said there are six ridings  in the province where there is  strong Liberal support, and he  plans to spend a lot of energy  securing these ridings for the  next election.  Wilson is a relative newcomer  to the political scene, first running and winning the office of  regional director in 1985. Immediately after that he announced that he would stand  for election under the Liberal  banner in the provincial race.  Although he came in third  after Harold Long and veteran  NDP candidate Dock  Lockstead in 1986, Wilson is  optimistic about his chances  next time around.  "It is my intention, at the  moment, to seek election in this  riding again. I hope in the next  few years to earn the trust and  support of the people in this  area," he said.  Gibsons favours  Vancouver tie  The Prime Minister of Papua New Guinea, the Right Honourable  Paias Wingti, along with other Papua New Guinea dignitaries enjoy the hospitality of the Sechelt Indian Band.

He was accompanied by the Honourable  Yaungtine Koromba, premier  of Southern Highlands Provincial Government, and several  staff and cabinet ministers.  There were 11 Papua New  Guinea representatives in all as  well as Daniel George, First  Secretary, Canadian High  Commission to PNG and  Australia, and Brian R. Gates,  Liaison Officer for the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting.  It all began on the Grouse  Mountain Skyride. Prime  Minister Wingti stated he would  like to visit some Native Indians. Dan George and Brian  Gates said they would arrange it  and Wingti cancelled the work  meetings for the afternoon.  Papau New Guinea did not  achieve independence until  September 16, 1975 and now,  like Canada, has a Constitutional Monarchy with a Governor General, a National  Legislature, and is divided into  provinces. Until then, its history  was also similar with perhaps  one significant difference.  Although it was occupied for  periods of time by foreigners, it  was never heavily settled by  them. Consequently, when the  country achieved independence,  the indigenous people of that  country gained state power.  Back at Sechelt, the RCMP  received a phone call asking if  Prime Minister Wingti could  meet with the Band. Carl Dixon, a member both of the Band  and the RCMP, was sent to find  the chief. A few hours later  history was made. Never before  in the memories of the Sechelts  had a Head of State ever visited  them.  When Prime Minister Wingti  first saw Carl Dixon in his  RCMP uniform he asked Chief  Paul, "Do you have your own  police force?" This was the start  of a long session held in the  Band Council Chambers. "Do  you still have a tribal system?  Do you still practise the old  ways? What kind of a constitution do you have?" were some  of the questions. Copies of the  Band Constitution, Bill C-93,  and the Indian Act were given  out to illustrate the degree of  progress made toward independence.  Outside the Band Office the  drivers and uniformed RCMP  waited patiently. Overbuilt men  in tight suits with awkward  bulges, wearing earphones and  talking into their lapels  wandered in and out. These  security men with their  hawk-like, darting eyes continually scanning the perimeter  were an indication that  something of significance was  happening.  The discussions would have  gone on longer, but the last  ferry, to Horseshoe Bay was  departing at 8:30. Before leaving the Band Lands, Carl Dixon  led the seven car cavalcade on a  tour. As they passed Chief  Paul's father's house, the chief  said to the prime minister,  "There's our native people  smoking and barbecuing  salmon."  Wingti was out of the car in a  minute and striding across the  yard toward the fire. His entourage and security fanned out  behind him. Several large  salmon were staked out in the  traditional style for cooking and  on a table nearby was a large  plastic tub filled with salmon  ready for the smokehouse.  Next door live Doreen and  Ross Dixon. Ross came over  with a large jar of smoked  salmon which he presented to  the visiting prime minister.  After opening and tasting it,  Wingti called everyone over to  sample   the   coastal   delicacy.  Please turn to page 4  Responding to the Sunshine  Coast Regional District Board's  call for the Sunshine Coast to be  moved into Region One, Gibsons Mayor Diane Strom said,  "I was a little shocked there was  not a meeting with the three  bodies before a decision was  made."  Alderman Bob Maxwell said,  "Our lifeline is right across the  bay," and Alderman Norm  Peterson saw Region Two, linking the Sunshine Coast with  Greater..,Vancouver and the  Tower Mainland, as not being a  bad proposition.  Peterson said the regional  board fears industry brought to  this area as a result of being in  Region Two may not be the industry we want. But he personally feels that there are  millions being spent which the  Long to  link with  MLA Harold Long is attempting to persuade the premier to  include the Sunshine Coast in  Region One, with Vancouver  Island and Powell River, he told  the Coast News last week. His  efforts are being supported by  the Minister of State for that  region, Stan Hagen.  Hagen attended the ribbon  cutting ceremony of the new  Capilano College Campus in  Sechelt on Friday, and told the  assembled guests that he, too,  has been discussing this issue  with Premier Vander Zalm.  The   premier's   recent   an-  Coast has no control over.  "We may not want them but  they're coming anyway."  As for Powell River, he says,  "I didn't see them helping the  Sunshine Coast with development benefits. They are a commercially industrial town area,"  and because he feels the Coast  isn't geared so much towards  big industry, "I think we'll get  more from Region Two."  Alderman Lilian Kunstler  said she would prefer to stay in  Region Two as well, but Alder-  marTGerry Dixon was'the only  one who came out in favour of  the SCRD's desire to move  regions.  Dixon sums up the disagreement over placements in regions  throughout the province as, "A  problem that's going to happen  in all eight areas."  push for  Island  nouncement of Development  Regions has the Sunshine Coast  included in Region Two with  the Lower Mainland and Fraser  Valley. The Sunshine Coast  Regional District was quick to  protest that division, as did  Powell River Mayor Colin  Palmer.  However Sechelt's mayor,  Bud Koch told the Coast News,  "The Regional Board must be  careful not to speak for the  municipalities." Both he and  Gibsons Mayor Diane Strom  are happy to be included in  Region Two.  Gibsons chooses  Cut-cost breakwater study  by Joel Johnstone  Looking for research at  bargain prices the Town of Gibsons Planning Committee has  opted for a limited version of a  breakwater study.  Following a recommendation  by Trevor Peach, vice-president  of Taylor Peach and Associates,  Planner Rob Buchan presented  the committee with an offer of a  scaled down version of the  study which initially was quoted  at $10,000.  ��� The letter from Peach states:  "In order to get things moving,  it might be more appropriate to  undertake a somewhat more  limited study than that which I  outlined to you."  : Buchan said it may be just as  well to go for the whole study  because of the potential of a 60  percent refund available from  the provincial government's  economic development funds.  : Alderman Norm Peterson  urged the committee to proceed  "with the $6500 study.  The committee agreed, with  Mayor Diane Strom saying that  with so many types of breakwaters available, the study, at  $6500, would help them move  their decision-making process  forward.  Peach also called for a part of  the study to be undertaken during the month of November,  "in order to be able to include  actual visual observation of  wave effects during the month  when the most severe storms  normally occur."  Buchan then went on to promote approval of another  study.  "We've been advocating for  some years a study of economic  floor space...store space...whether we have a lack of of floor  space."  The committee seemed to  rebuff the idea even though  Buchan urged, "This is one  which could really tell us  something."  The idea would be to promote the study to the Economic  Development Commission using Alderman Bob Maxwell as  the messenger, but Maxwell  said, "I rather hesitate to go to  the commission with this. With  Sechelt opting out, we might be  accused of being somewhat  parochial."  Mayor Diane Strom thought  the study could be of use to the  Town. "We used to have a lot  of space downtown not being  used. We don't have that now  but we do uptown."  Buchan persisted, noting that  independant floor space studies  conducted by businesses on  their own behalf were not  available to the Town and, "a  study like this could have  tremendous value in-house,"  and "would be a benefit to the  economic health of the whole  area."  Peterson backed that up by  saying, "A study done two  years ago would be totally  useless today."

Coast News, October 19,1987  r  A sadness  For those of us of British ancestry who have long supported the concept of the Commonwealth of Nations as an  inter-racial, international and co-operative attempt to bring harmony to a portion of the world's embattled  peoples, last week's Commonwealth Conference in Vancouver was saddening indeed.  Not only was the arrogantly intractable British delegation led by the lady who glories in the title of the Iron  Maiden out of step with the entire fellowship of nations,  but the Maggie Thatcher-led Britons launched a campaign  which sought to discredit the host country which was surely more in keeping with the hothouse rivalries of party  politics than a meeting of equal heads of state.  The South African government is the only government  in the world which has institutionalized racism. Enlightened self-interest alone, if appeals to natural justice are ineffective, should be enough to lead to united opposition to  it by the whites in an increasingly coloured world.  An irony  An intriguing spin-off to the Commonwealth Conference was the visit to Sechelt to meet a Canadian Indian  Band of the Prime Minister of Papua New Guinea and his  entourage.  The visit underlines the global importance attributed to  the rights of aboriginal peoples around the world, an importance which those of us who live side by side with  Canada's original inhabitants seem largely unaware of  still.  And is it not ironic that the Prime Minister of Papua  New Guinea should go out of of his way to meet the  Sechelts when the mayor of the neighbouring municipality  has yet to walk over to discuss the gravel extraction matter? .  When are we going to learn that writing letters to Victoria about our problems is not the answer. We should be  writing with united front about our solutions.  SCRD finagling  It was reported enthusiastically and elsewhere last week  that the SCRD had switched to a weighted voting system,  the move hailed as a step towards justice.  The fact is the SCRD has had a weighted voting system  all along, the only change is to attribute to Sechelt District  Municipality the number of votes it should have gained  with restructuring 16 months ago.  We note also that Area C is attributed 692 residents and  one vote. This number includes the Indian population  though it would appear that they are destined to be a  municipality in their own right and have said they will not  participate in inter-governmental matters until their independence pursuit is complete.  Their inclusion to justify the existence of an essentially  non-existent regional district is typical of the deviousness  which marks so much of regional district activity.  It is noted Director Gordon Wilson intends to run again  for the regional board. Perhaps he can refrain from  bashing the provincial government long enough to take  note of the absurdities on the body to which he is already  elected.  5 YEARS AGO  Sechelt Indian Band lost longtime leader Clarence  Joe. Clarence's was a long and active life. He had been  a respected logger, stevedor, and fisherman, and was  instrumental in establishing the Indian fishermen's  Assistance Programme.  A larger than life image of George Gibson presided  over the successful beginning of the Centennial '86  Society meeting.  On the centennial of George Gibson's founding of  this community, May 24, 1886, the society intends to  hand over to Gibsons council the keys to "a recreational  facility addition to Gibsons Aquatic Centre."  10 YEARS AGO  Regional board director Metzler was critical of  regional board staff Wednesday, over the issue of a letter sent to the BC Land Commission. Director Metzler's  criticism centred around the fact that the board's staff  had not recommended the exclusion from the  Agricultural Land Reserve of Creekside Estates.  20 YEARS AGO  The latest reports of wolves being spotted in the area  comes from Ernie Burnett. While hunting Sunday afternoon between Langdale and Port Mellon, Ernie saw a  big wolf on a skyline rock. Mr. Burnett says he was  disappointed he had a gun instead of a camera.  30 YEARS AGO  A permit for an $8000 two storey building to be used  as a sales and service building for Smitty's Boat Rentals was granted by Gibsons Village Commission Tuesday night.  40 YEARS AGO  Teen Town held its first dance of the season in  Sechelt United School on October 10. The largest dance  yet to besponsored by the Sechelt Teen Town boasted  over sixty teenagers present.  The Sunshine  Published by GLASSFORD PRESS LTD.

Is the sky really a  deeper blue with everything etched so bright and clear against  it? Is it the knowledge that even  this year there must be gathering storms out in the Pacific  waiting to break through, which  heightens our awareness?  Our house is tucked down  among trees, sheltered from the  east by a rise of tall firs, so morning doesn't come with a  dramatic fanfare, 'here comes  the sun' as, clearing the North  Shore mountains it spills golden  light across the waters of Howe  Sound. ' .;'..  Instead, daylight tiptoes on  tabby feet, silvery light slowly  vanquishing the shadows and  it's about an hour after sunrise  before the treetops on the west  reflect the glow and warmth of  another sunny day to the still  waiting garden, a garden  already alive with migrating  robins feeding on the rowan  berries. Juncos are back, black  cowls, brown habits, waiting  with impatient voices for me to  bring their breakfast oats.  An eagle is back too, stark  black and white against the blue  sky as he surveys the beach  from a familiar vantage point.  Along the beach winter residents return and migrants stop  over briefly. Loons sit deep in  the water again and hell divers  bob to the surface like corks,  two pairs of Harlequin ducks  nestle together on a rock near  the waters edge and a merganser  family, hard to tell which is  mother now, work their way  along the shallows.  One morning a pair of oyster  catchers, foraging among the  seaweed covered rocks, are joined briefly by a flock of Aleutian  sandpipers.  Returning from the beach it's  tempting to sit on the deck  soaking up those last hours of  warm sunshine, but there is too  much to do in the garden and  those autumn chores go so  much better with sunshine  which is not too hot and blue  skies to encourage frequent  times to 'stand and stare'. So  much beauty to absorb, the -  work proceeds slowly.  The cutleaf birch, thirty feet  of straight white trunk stands  like a shimmering yellow fountain against a backdrop of dark  fir, flurries of tiny golden leaves  flutter to the ground as the  breeze passes by.  The breeze, helped by a pair  of squirrels persuades the horse  chestnuts to drop, spilling their  varnished shiny nuts from  prickly green cases.  A flock of evening grosbeaks  works the wild cherries over for  any remaining fruit among the  golden leaves.  An aerobatic and noisy performance is staged by four  Steller's jays feasting on acorns,  a kaleidoscope of brilliant colours, blue and black birds  among the gold, russet and  green leaves.  The sea shimmers in the mid  day sun like crinkled foil while  the sumac glows scarlet beside  the ivy covered stump, where  the yellow-green flowers attract  a buzzing host of wasps, bees,  and flies.  Then, a whisper at first, but  gradually impinging on one's  consciousness comes that soft  murmuring from the sky and  one's memory gives a leap as the  sound registers, geese. You  crane your neck, searching the  blue, and then there they are  right overhead, a loose straggling line of Canadas, talking to  themselves as they keep that  steady wingbeat, homing in  towards the Fraser estuary to  rest and feed. It's a Sight which  never fails to thrill and to set  one's blood racing.  We may not see the sunrise  over the mountains, but by this  time of year we can enjoy the  fiery red and orange, delicate  pink, gold, azure and sometimes green of the sunset, the  brilliance of the sky reflected in  the calm waters of Georgia  Strait.  Long shafts of light penetrate'.  the trees along the western:  boundary of the garden, '���  spotlighting a clump of golden \  rod, the new bark on the ar-;  butus or the last blooms of;  marigolds. The trunks of the :  first are bathed in a red light ;  and wonderful things happen as ',  the blue woodsmoke from the '���  wood stove lit for the evening ���  drifts down through the trees in- \  termingling with the sunbeams. ���  Spring and Fall:  To a Young Child  Margaret, are you grieving  Over Goldengrove unleaving?  Leaves, like the things of man, you  Wish your fresh thoughts care for, can you?  Ah! as the heart grows older  It will come to such sights colder  By and by, nor spare a sigh  Though worlds of wan wood leaf meal lie;  And yet you will weep and know why.  Now no matter, child, the name:  Sorrow's springs are the same.  Nor mouth had, no nor mind, expressed  What heart heard of, ghost guessed:  It is the blight man was born for,  It is Margaret you mourn for.  Gerard Manley Hopkins  From Another Perspective  What led to arms agreement?  by Peter Prongos  The recent agreement in principle between the United States  and the Soviet Union to eliminate   all   Intermediate-range  Nuclear Forces (INF) is a potentially significant step towards  real arms control and disarmament. The importance of the  INF treaty goes beyond the actual numbers of weapons to be  destroyed (about 3 per cent of  the world's nuclear weapons).  Its true value lies in the hope '  that it may be a first step toward  substantial cuts in the nuclear  arsenals.  Previous treaties (Salt I and  Salt II for example), merely set  ceilings on how many and what  kinds of new nuclear systems  would be built by Washington  and Moscow. Now, for the first  time, the US and the USSR  have agreed to actually get rid  of some weapons.  In addition, there now seems  to be momentum and good will  building up on both sides to  make serious deep cuts in their  bloated nuclear stockpiles.  There are hints that a 50 per  cent reduction in nuclear arms  will be discussed at the next  Gorbachev-Reagan summit.  Moreover, the trust engendered  by this pact should help superpower relations in general,  which   should   lower  tensions  and reduce the risk of a crisis  that might set off the final  holocaust.  Very few people would have  predicted such an arms control  treaty in the early years of this  decade. The Soviet Union was  still governed by neo-Stalinists  who showed little imagination  when it came to arms control.  In the US, the election of  Ronald Reagan, with his anti-  Soviet obsession and his committment to escalating the arms  race (to the tune of over $1.5  trillion dollars in five years!),  offered little hope.  What happened? Well, the  new Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev,   who   proved   to   be  pragmatic,   intelligent,   and  energetic, needs arms control to  reduce the risk of war and to  ease the drain on   economy.  While we still have Reagan in  the saddle, he has changed his  tune. This is partly because US .  military spending has already  succeeded in enriching the war  industries,   and   because   his  ridiculous 'Star Wars' program  would continue this corporate  welfare to the tune of perhaps  another trillion dollars. (That's  why he refuses to compromise  on Star Wars even in order to  get a big reduction in the very  Soviet missiles that it is supposed to shoot down).  The other factor, at least of  equal importance, has been the  international peace movement.  The weight of public opinion in  North America and Europe for  an end to the insanity of the  nuclear arms race was the key  political consideration which  has forced Reagan to agree to  the INF treaty. In a recent interview, noted US policy analyst  Professor Noam Chomsky  stated that, in his opinion, the  peace movement's contribution  was "essential" in creating the  atmosphere in which the superpowers could reach an agreement.  Yet, one looks in vain at the  coverage in the mainstream  media for an acknowledgement  that popular pressure played a  significant role in this historic  development. The leaders get  the praise, even when one of  them (Reagan) did all he could  for six years to avoid any agreement. (Indeed, the US violated  the Salt II treaty and will break  Salt I if it goes ahead with Star  Wars).  By denying to people the  knowledge that popular movements can succeed, the media  tend to reinforce passivity and  apathy.  Here in Canada, during the  debate over the Charter of  Rights, it was a given that  women and men would get  equal protection under the law.  The only question was how tb7  best guarantee women's right��7  in the Constitution. This woulcj-:  not have been the case ifj;  Canada did not enjoy a strong^  and vigorous women's move��;!  ment. Anti-pollution laws, fojc;;  instance, are another monu>:j  ment to public demands, as i|;<  the park now planned in thC;  Queen Charlotte Islands.

Dear Mr. Long:  I am writing to you on behalf  of the seven registered massage  therapists and our over 2000  patients who live in your  riding. These patients are sent  to us by physicians for conditions ranging from multiple  sclerosis and arthritis to back  pain and whiplash.  The honourable Peter  Dueck, Minister of Health, has  stated that he is considering  removing massage therapy  from medical services plan  coverage. This would, have a  serious effect on the health care  system of the Sunshine Coast.  We want to know what your  position is in this matter.  Massage therapy is one of  the least expensive medical  treatments covered by MSP. It  represents less than one tenth  of one per cent of the medical  budget or about one dollar per  year per BC resident. Replacing  massage with other treatments  would increase health care  costs. For instance, a typical  hospitaJl bed rest treatment for  severe back pain costs $3000  while massage therapy for the  same condition costs in the  $100 range.  The Massage Therapists'  Association understands that  rising health care costs are a  problem. We strongly suggest a  broadly based public inquiry to  study and deal with this problem.  If you have any questions on  this urgent matter, please don't  hesitate to contact me.  As our MLA, I am hoping  that you will support keeping  massage   therapy   on   the  medical plan.  I request a reply in writing.  Peter Behr  Registered Massage Therapist  President, M.T.A.

Wingti was full of questions.  "Do you "elect your chief?" he  was heard to ask one of the  children.  A seagull flew by. "Do you  eat those?" he asked Chief  Paul.  "I believe some of the old  people used to," the chief  replied, "but not anymore."  Next were the totem poles  outside the Community Hall  and then over to the new housing being built on Porpoise Bay.  Jamie Dixon happened to be  there working on his house so  everyone stopped to take a look  at how houses were built in  Canada. One of the aspects the  visiting dignitaries found  fascinating was insulation.  "There are no seasons over  there," the prime minister told  Chief Paul, "just one hot one.  all year round." In Papua New  Guinea temperatures in the  lowlands average between 75  and 82 degrees Fahrenheit (24 to  28 Celsius) and in the highlands  68 degrees Fahrenheit (20  degrees Celsius).  The sun had now set over  Porpoise Bay and a chill was  setting in. The last ferry would  be leaving soon and the security  people were getting restless.  Goodbyes were said and the  sleek limosine with the official  pennant, reserved only for a  Head of State, glided through  the gates of the Sechelt Indian  Band.

Now, Jane Murray helps  Laura Wray down the hallway  to her afternoon tea during one  of her three times a week visits.  "It's Aunt Laura to everyone," Murray says of the  gentle-moving, elderly woman  who quite surprisingly has a  sharp twinkle in her eyes.  "Been like that for years and  years," Aunt Laura says of her  petname.  But as to how old she is "they  say I'm 92."  It's hard for her to hear  unless words are spoken very  loudly. Jane Murray has the experience with Aunt Laura. It  shows. Very clearly she  understands what it takes to  make herself understood.  She is the first respite worker  Aunt Laura has had. She is also  the first the Sunshine Coast  Home Support Society has.  Murray says Aunt Laura "is  unable to live alone anymore.  Right now she's waiting for an  opening at Shorncliffe. Until  then she can't live alone."  But she's facing a 12 to 14  month wait.  "They figure a year before  there's an opening. That's how  long the waiting list is."  Until then, Murray will be  there Monday, Wednesday, and  Friday "being a companion to  someone not well enough or too  old to take care of themselves."  Her job is to provide relief to  families   who   have   someone  such as Aunt Laura to take care  of because "it's kind of hard on  the family. It's not  supervising...but being there.  "A regular homemaker  comes in Monday and Thursday  to change the bedding, bath her,  and clean the house," she explains.  Homemakers are another  aspect of services provided to  the elderly convalescing in  homes outside caring institutions like Shorncliffe  "A respite worker is more a  companion role."  Because she and the Home  Support Society believe the need  for such relief exists, the Respite  Worker Program came to the  Coast.  "Officially," Murray says,  "the program started October  first but out of necessity I  started in the middle of  September," because Aunt  Laura is living with family who  need time for themselves to  work, or shop, or do things they  wouldn't otherwise get the  chance to do if they were charged with the responsibilities of  giving fulltime care.  "Other parts of the province  have respite workers in Home  Support Programs and, like  Meals on Wheels and Adult  Day Care, we all go under the  umbrella of the Home Support  Society."  Right now Murray is the sole  respite worker, but "there's not  great demand because the program isn't quite on its feet yet.  I'm sure Home Support Week  will certainly help attract people"  Co-ordinated Knit Wear  For that  CUSTOM  DESIGN LOOK  /ABBEY  / WINDOW  'COVERINGS  Mini Blinds  Hundreds of  fashion-rich  colours to  choose from  40%  Custom Drapery & Bedspread Fabric^  Pre-Packaged  HALLOWE'EN  GOODIES  Caring and companionship for Aunt Laura is now Jane Murray's  job as a respite worker for the Sunshine Coast Home Support  Society. ���Joel Johnstone photo  25 or 50  Individual  Treats  ��<gSO/  Bag  DON'T DELAY PLACE  YOUR XMAS CANDY  ORDERS  SOON!

BACK FOR CALLS  Yes, I'm back from holidays  although I think my brain is still  on leave. It was good to get  away and see new sights: I must  return to the Olympic Peninsula  to spend more time; the Oregon  Coast was even more impressive  than usual with the smoke from  the devastating forest fires  enhancing the sunsets.  San Francisco was hot, hot,  hot (102 degrees Fahrenheit!),  but the Napa Valley wineries  were cool and refreshing. We  didn't feel the earthquake in  Los Angeles but we sure heard  about it. We lost a moderate  amount in Reno and were  fascinated by all the volcanic  formations in central Oregon.  The roadsides in Washington  were a sight for sore eyes after  the litter of non-refundable beer  cans in Calfornia and I kicked  myself for not buying a turkey  at 69 cents per pound.  But the Sunshine Coast is still  one of the prettiest places  around and it's good to be back  in time to enjoy our beautiful  fall weather although everybody  seems to have a cold or the flu.

The discovery of dioxins in  the eggs of a heron colony near  Crofton is the most recent local  example of just how useful  birds are for providing a timely  warning of environmental  pollution.  To follow up the discovery of  dioxins in herons, the Canadian  Wildlife Service is planning a  study of colonies in the lower  mainland area and Vancouver  Island. The study would provide information about the  number of young birds each  colony is producing, and the  burden of dioxin they carry, if  any.  At one time there were about  85 heron colonies in the study  area, but because nesting sites  are periodically abandoned and  new ones formed, their exact  number and locations are continually changing.  Consequently the Canadian  Wildlife Service is appealing to  the public for help, and anyone  knowing the whereabouts of a  heron colony that was active  last spring is asked to either  telephone the Canadian Wildlife Service at 946-8546, or to  write: Heron Search, Canadian  Wildlife Service, Box 340,  Delta, B.C. V4K 3Y3, with information on colony size and  location.  AT UP TO  $200 OFF,  -ELECTROLUX-  1987 VACUUMS ARE  DISAPPEARING FAST  doesn't go on  sale very often.

This area may soon be a provincial park. ���Rose Nicholson photo  Long  Provincial park for Sargent Bay  Residents of the Sunshine  Coast are much closer to having  I a provincial park in Sargent Bay  : this week. MLA Harold Long  s visited the area last week, along  , with Sechelt Mayor Bud Koch  and Art Angell, who owns pro-  ' perty in the area.  In an interview with the  .; Coast News Long said he was  ��� actively pursuing the purchase  :of 168 acres, including a long  : stretch of waterfront, to be  ' turned into a park and wildlife  '��� preserve.  Long called it 'a terrific loca  tion' and said he hopes to get  some action on the deal within a  year. "Actually, I'm hoping for  something within a few  months," he admitted, "but  you never know how these  things will go."  This is exactly the kind of  development that the Sargent  Bay Society has been hoping  for. When contacted for his  comments on the proposal,  Society President Joop Burgerjon said, "I am pleasantly surprised that they are pursuing  that idea again."  Several years ago the owner  Egmont News  Fall smorgasbord  by Ann Cook, 883-9253  Yes folks, Donna's just sent  out the good word. Sunday, October 25, 6 pm for the fall  smorgasbord.

Belated birthday greetings to  Flo Williams.  From the Gibsons  planning meeting  Continued from page 1  Maxwell took the suggestion  to the Economic Development  Commission on Thursday, who  appeared to support the proposal. Chairman Maurice Egan  agreed to follow up on it, consulting with Rob Buchan.  In other committee business  the White Tower Medieval  Society was granted permission  to clear the northeast corner of  Lot 5 with machinery lent to  them by the Town as long as  proceeds from any saleable  materials go towards the  development of the park area.  A couple of ponds created  during the construction near  Charman Creek would also help  drainage problems, Buchan  said, because culverts downstream were undersized when  confronted with storm conditions.  The committee also chose to  allow the house numbering  system being utilized for the  Town to now fall under the  auspices of the Regional District  Board because their facilities are  more suited to handle the workload.  Fires banned  Roberts Creek Volunteer Fire Department Chief Denis  Mulligan, has issued a statement that, effective immediately,  absolutely no open fires are permitted anywhere in the  Roberts Creek Fire Protection District, namely all areas north  and south of the highway from Pine Road west to Browning  Road.  Fire conditions are extremely hazardous, and the ban on  burning will not be lifted until after substantial rainfalls.  THE GIBSONS  MEDICAL CLINIC  is pleased to announce the return of  Dr. Robert Burlin  from one year's sabbatical  to resume his general  practice as of  November 2, 1987  of the property, Art Angell,  entered into long negotiations  with the province which eventually fell through. Since that  time there have been several  proposals put forth for developing the area for housing, none  of which got past the planning  stages.  Both the District Municipality of Sechelt and the Sunshine  Coast Regional District are  strongly supportive of the park  proposal. Mayor Bud Koch and  Chairman Jim Gurney will both  be throwing the weight of their  governments behind Long as he  attempts to secure the purchase  of the land.  by Jean Robinson, 885-2954  The general meeting of the  Davis Bay/Wilson Creek Community Association is tonight.

BRIDGE  The first bridge game of the  fall season was a great success.  Six full tables of bridge and a  foursome of regulars playing  cribbage. Really a 'Grand Slam'  for hall capacity.  Friday, October 23, will be  the second bridge of the month.  It starts, as usual, at 1 pm. The  second and fourth Fridays continue through the winter at the  Wilson Creek Hall for bridge.  RAIN DANCE  It is rumoured that Ernie  Wood is praying for rain. Well,  so far that's not been too successful up to the time of writing  this at least.

For one thing it is now named  simply the Commonwealth.  Do you know where the  republics of Kiribati, Nauru,  Vanuatu are? The kingdoms of  Tuvalu or Lesotho?  The others of the 49 countries, if Fiji is still a member,  you will of course know. What  was that about US folk knowing very little about Canada?  Since a declared principle of  the Commonwealth is international peace and order, and a  fairer global society, its  geography and cultures and its  common bond of the English  language, can provide ready-  made material for new peace  studies which our school board  has proposed.  Each small state booth in the  Exposition showed some samples of products our fellow  Commonwealthers are eager to  sell us. And leaflets extolling  their attractions for the Canadian tourist.  The large man from Western  Samoa said, "Take a holiday  with us and you won't want to  go home." "Why Western?"  "The Eastern islands of Samoa  are American," said he, "and  there's quite an American influence in our country."  "In yours, too, eh?"  The man from Malta said  their Maltese language originated in North Africa.  "Everyone speaks it, and  English."  A leaflet extolling the beaches  and crystal waters of Maldives  warns, "Do not attempt to offer alcohol to our nationals."  And, "Nudity is offensive to  our traditions, and please do  not go nude on the beaches or in  the water. On the inhabited?  islands please note the  minimum dress requirements."  There it is, plain and straight,  how to behave in Maldives.  Good for them.  A Commonwealth newsletter  of August this year tells this to  the Small States exhibitors,  "Canada with its high personal ^  incomes and strong economy is.,/  an important importer, investor, and source of tourists,  and for many small countries  still an under-exploited  market."  Here's a catalogue of products to read as fast as you can  to your grandchildren, or  somebody's grandchildren:  "Jams, jellies, preserves and  pepper sauce; dried salted fish,  shark fins, sea cucumbers, and  ambergris; desiccated coconut,  carambola juice; shoes, sandals,  and boots; tapestries, rugs and  woollen teddy bears; mats, hats,  fans and swords from Kiribati;  kava drink, dried bananas, beef  and mutton; pigskin coats,  ginger beer, and golden rums,  Home Support  Society facts  1. The main objective of the  Sunshine Coast Home Suppdrt  Society is to provide programs  that enable persons to live in  their own homes and maintain a  desirable and realistic standard  of independent living.  2. The Home Support Service  began as a volunteer program in  the 1960's and was known as  Homemaker Service. In 1974,  the Homemaker Service joined  the Sunshine Coast Community  Services Society, where it remained until February 1987.  In 1978 the provincial government established the Long  Term Care program, with the  belief that most elderly, ill, and  disabled persons want to stay in  their homes and want to have as  much control over their own  lives as possible. Another important reason for establishing  this program is that it is a decided cost advantage to the taxpayer to maintain persons in  their own homes. In 1978, the  Long Term Care program  assumed responsibility for the  homemaker programs in the  province.  In 1986, the Homemaker Service changed its name to Home  Support Services and home-  makers are now called Home  Support Workers.  On February 1, 1987, the  Sunshine Coast Home Support  Society was established as an independent non-profit organization. Although we are no longer  a part of the Sunshine Coast  Community Services Society,  we are most supportive of each  other. To be continued  falernum, brandy and ouzo.  And IKEA furniture from  Botswana?"  Note:  M.   West,  add  that  'desiccated' to your spelling list.  Note:   ambergris   -   whale  droppings or floatings. Makes  wonderful base for perfumes.  And to turn from the  somewhat exotic perspectives  the Exposition presented us to a  few notes on big sister province,  Ontario.  Announced in the Toronto  airport, "This is the final, final  call for the flight to  Fredericton." Yet no one in the  waiting room responded. Everyone was going to Vancouver.  In Waterford each year a  young lady is selected the  Tobacco Queen. A high school  teacher told me the school hardly gets started the first two  weeks of fall term. "The  students are picking tobacco."  "You have posters of the  dangers of drinking and driving. Any on the hazards of  tobacco use?" "That's a taboo  subject in this school."  "There are no crops to  substitute for tobacco that pay  as well - $1000 an acre," said a  resident.  "How about peanuts?" said  I having just read an account of  experiments in growing them,  them.  "At $100 an acre, that's  peanuts."  Nearby the fields of red  tomatoes, cauliflower, peppers.  And plots of enormous pumpkins. A food basket for the  whole country.  "The tomato growers have to  rush their 15-ton loads to the  processor night and day this  time of the season before the  plant has to switch over to  another vegetable crop. Anxious times."  And 60 percent of Canada's  population lives in this Ontario  region and the regions along the  St. Lawrance in Quebec.  Humourous road directive  signs, too. Instead of 'Merge'  which we pompously use, they  have 'Squeeze left'.  It would be no surprise if a  sign further on said, 'And  squeeze left again, honey'.

The place was Greentree  Village Community Centre in  Burnaby and making the knot  secure was Mr. J. Embree,  Justice of the Peace.  The bride was stunning in her  white dress with black accents  with a swirling skirt from a  dropped waist. The groom wore  a white jacket and black pants.  Touches of blush pink in Peter's  tie, the candles and flowers gave  that just right added colour.  Wendy is the daughter of  Ivan and Katherine Hunt of  Burnaby, Peter's family is in  England.  Standing up for Wendy was  her sister Melanie Perkins from  Parkdale and best man was her  husband Wayne Perkins.  Those present thrilled to the  singing of Whispering Hope by  Signe Murgatroyd accompanied  by Ken Dalgleish, as well as  several other numbers.  Absent friends were toasted  so even if someone wasn't there,  they were not forgotten.  Wendy declared she had such  incredible help from fellow  workers and friends. Lillo  Buchhorn, personnel head at St.  Mary's Hospital and an avid  gardener, supplied many bouquets from her own garden.  Michelle Chapman, dietitian,  organized the delicious food.  Linda Simeon was a fantastic  help and John recorded the  whole afternoon on video and  making sure all angles were  covered, Andy Buhler had his  video camera too.  A special treat from the  daughter of Wendy's cousin,  Shanna Brozer, who performed  in full regalia, a very traditional  sword dance. She has been a  winner in many competitions  and it was a thrill for the company.  Guests   were   there   from  Parkdale,  Oregon,  Utah, the  Okanagan,   Victoria  and   the  Sunshine Coast.

Will all those men who have  started a project, please raise  your   right   hand!   We   need  many.  LOTTERY TICKETS  For those of you who still  have Seniors Lottery Tickets to  send in, please make your cheque out to 'Sechelt Seniors  Branch 69' and bring to our  hall. In this manner, the Branch  sends one cheque to Seniors  Lottery prior to the Early Bird  draw, and for this service the  Lottery is saved a lot of bookkeeping and our Branch benefits by one-third of the total  dollar value collected.  RAFFLES  The Branch is indebted to  Jean Sherlock and Dorothy  Bracewell for oganizing two  separate raffles, to be drawn at  our Bazaar on November 28.  Both have good prizes and proceeds, of course, go to the  building fund.  Where   possible,   members  and non-members alike are requested to participate for this  worthy cause.  MAINTENANCE  When the need arises, the  answer is provided!  Last week Ed and Margo  Matthews, Ted Farewell, Lola  Caldwell and Betty Calli teamed  up to bring daylight out of  darkness. They cleaned the windows of the entire hall, they're  small, and no easy task. Voluntary participation is much appreciated by the Branch.  The next step to be taken is  inside the hall.

LOCAL GIRL WEDS  Garnet Kiselback, formerly  of Halfmoon Bay, was a  beautiful bride when she exchanged vows with Ronn  Wilson, son of Mr. and Mrs.  Edward Wilson of North Vancouver on Saturday, October 3.  The ceremony was at St.  John's Anglican Church in  North Vancouver with reception at the Jaycee Hall. Maid of  Honour was Mary Connor, and  Bridesmaid was Lisa Urselscu,  while Amanda was the pretty  little flower girl. The bride was  led to the altar by her father,  Erwin Kiselback.  Also present were Garnet's  brothers Andy, Tom and Ron.  Andy and Tom are European  chefs, and it was Andy, pastry  chef, who created the beautiful  wedding cake with several layers  of strawberry pantacrie topped  with slivered white chocolate  and decorated with fresh roses.

NEST LEWIS  Iteiri by itfe^ Coast News, October 19,1987   IPPIII lil.l)liniMPMaMMM��iaillli<l<Mllttil��-"r"1''"''- <       '"  ~  An exhibit of new oil paintings by Gibsons artist Eve Smart is on  display at the Hunter Gallery until October 26.      ���Ken Collins photo  Pages From A Life-Log  Ghost Town Circuit  by Peter Trower  WUd, sad, often-brutal times,  men against mountains, mad  with gold and the fantasy of  what it brings. A shambling  land, haunted by lost prosperity  and old greed. Scattered  through it now, the ghost towns  dream of the vibrancy they once  knew before time shot out their  lights and passed them by.  They lurk up lonesome valleys; slouch in hapless dereliction beside uncaring  highways. They have been gutted, looted and badly used. But  there is a shabby grandeur to  them. Once they stood proud  when the mines were booming  and whisky flowed like water in  the saloons. Now they stand  forlorn, ragged echoes of a  roaring heyday, few men living  can even remember.  On a mild Friday in mid  May, Yvonne and I pack our  bags and set out for the ghost-  town country. The ostensible  purpose of the trip is to visit  Yvonne's daughter, Sandi, who  is teaching school in Nelson but  we are also hunting material for  a proposed anthology, themed  around 'lost' things. The West  Kootenays with their many  relics of the silver mining boom  years, seem a logical area to  start rummaging.  The initial part of the journey  is pretty familiar turf to both of  us from many previous jaunts.  We make good time through the  spring-green Fraser Valley,  catch a quick breakfast at Hope  and commence the tortuous  haul over the Manning Pass.  The colossal disaster-site of the  Hope-Princeton slide is healing  over now with tenacious patches  of new vegetation, but it still remains a daunting testament to  the fury of unleashed Nature.  Soon we are winding down  the last precipitous hill, past  signs of vigorous new mining  activity that has virtually  scalped a nearby mountain, into  Princeton, a definitely unpretty  town, despite its beautiful setting. We pause here briefly to  pick up a few cartons of fruit  juice and forge on.  About a mile past Princeton  we run into what looks like at  first glance, the scene of a major accident. There are cars,  cops and people virtually blocking the highway. As we draw  closer, we realize what all the  commotion is about. We have  run into the Man in Motion,  Rick Hansen and his entire entourage. It seems only fitting to  stop and take a look.  The wheelchair athlete is not  in motion or even in slight. He is  closeted in his trailer having  lunch. The crowd waits expectantly. We contribute a few  bucks to the kitty and wait with  them. Finally, the door opens  and the gallant Hansen swings  out into his waiting chair. He's  a pleasant looking guy with a  boyish smile. A television crew  clusters around him for yet  another interview. Poor Hansen  must be just about interviewed  to death but he responds cheerfully to the questions. He looks  very small and vulnerable sitting  there but he is all heart. It is impossible not to be impressed by  his courage.  We depart the Rick Hansen  road-show and tool on into the  dry country. At Hedley, with its  always-impressive old pithead  buildings still clinging limpetlike to the mountain, we decide  to stop and take a closer look at  the town itself. I had always  thought Hedley was a semi  ghost town, inhabited by hippies and old-age pensioners, but  as we drive through the streets,  there are definite signs of prosperity. The reason for this  becomes apparent when we talk  to an old-timer and learn that  the mine has been re-opened.  Most of the able-bodied townspeople now have steady jobs.  With the infusion of money,  once moribund Hedley has  taken a new lease on life.  Luring  Hollywood  Producers and directors  from Hollywood to Montreal  will soon be learning about the  Sunshine Coast from ads in industry magazines and a promotional package called 'Shoot  For Magic on the Sunshine  Coast.'  The advertising push was  developed by Paul Murphy,  under contract to the  Economic Development Commission (EDC), to lure the film  industry to this part of the  world. Murphy presented his  plans to the EDC last week and  says he hopes to have the promotion package ready to go by  the end of November.  Apart from a beautiful, eyecatching photograph, the  package will contain information on everything from scenic  possibilities and local talent to  ferry and plane schedules, boat  charters, and courier services.

Like all  Fellini, La Strada can be a stirring experiencce whether or not  you can accept or discern its  message.  Admission is $3.50/$3 at the  door.

Entitled Notes From  the Century Before, it is essentially a journal of Hoagland's  travels through the remote  wilderness settlements of a land  whose legends and lifeways  were already in the mid 1970's  Tailing prey to the en~  croachments of civilization. A  lesser writer might have produced a mere superficial travelogue.  Fortunately, Hoagland is a  literary craftsman of great  talent and perception. He immerses himself totally in his  subject and the book throbs  with life and a singing sense of  the past.  j To convey the charm and  trower of Hoagland's writing, it  -Is necessary to quote a typical  passage of vibrant description:  ^ "A brown stain of silt  .^spreads out in front of the  ^nouth of the river, curds of  j^foam everywhere which are  jgsquaw soap'. Like yesterday,  ^here's the wild Eden sense-  droops of birds dashing. In its  ^spring flood, the river slides like  ��a river of mud. We angle from  ^island to island to catch the  tshort stretches of slack water  ;^and pound like a busy smithy in  order to make five mph. Snags  stick out of the river like the  heads of seals, the islands taper  like arrows and look hot, but  ashore a forest of cool Sitka  Spruce rises two thousand or  three thousand feet with snow  going up from there. Side  valleys split away into Y's,  blocked by mountains. A few  spooky cabins appear. Horsetail  falls hang from the cliffs. Every  curve reveals bigger mountains.  We pass Shakes glacier, in a  scoop valley with a huge land-  form at the back like a buffalo's  head. The occasional eagle sits  quietly at the top of a cotton-  wood tree. Like seeing one's  first lion at the zoo, he's already  a neighbourly sight, except one  is surprised when he just sits  and doesn't perform. His head  is a startling lineny white."  The book abounds with  graceful little prose poems of  this sort.  But Hoagland's primary interest is in people. He interviewed many old time miners, prospectors and trappers and  through their eyes, he transported us back to earlier times  when the land was really untamed. Some of their stories are truly remarkable. Most of them  were very old men when  Hoagland encountered them  but he managed to engage their  trust and elicit their best yarns.  The author paints word pictures  of his confidantes that bring  Rhythms of Life  Scorpios emerge  ;into light of day  by. Penny Fuller  ,;    Deep, dark places frighten  .���:*most of us. You never know  pf:*:��what might be lurking there.  -::*!jThe 'Dark Mother', the pits of  ��*Hell, the dark of the moon, are  i^all phrases and images that send  ��ia shiver up our spines, unless  !��you were bora between October  j��24th and November 3rd.  *& The Sun, the essence of life, is  Sin Scorpio at that time and people born under that sun are  ^���notorious for going 'where  itjjangels fear to tread', whether  ^���you're referring to the depths of  ��the soul or a situation.  s�� Scorpios hate anyone else to  gpave secrets, although they have  ^plenty;of their own. They need  ^to know exactly what's going  Kbn. But it's not an intellectual  ^uriousity as one might find  with a Gemini, for instance.  In the less evolved individual,  ^it can be closely akin to pure  ^paranoia. If they don't know  ^���something, they may be con-  I'yinced that it is going to work  ^against them.  r��   In the more spiritual type of  ^Scorpio.it is demonstrated in an  Tfawe inspiring courage where the  ^individual is prepared to explore  7;every   aspect   of   themselves  7and/or what is happening, in  border  to transform  whatever  mess   they   might   find   into  Something of great beauty.  ���j< Pluto, the planet of death  ��and rebirth, of transformation,  Pjrules Scorpio. It is possibly due  yjx> their ability to so thoroughly  Shelve into their own psyches,  j#iat Scorpios may be almost  totally different people at different times of their lives. This  ,t;s especially true of those who  ��^re living in the present age.  \ In   November   1983,   Pluto  gloved into Scorpio. Since then  rlt has been moving over the Sun  positions of those born from  Ibctober     24th     through  i|fovember 3rd. While those of  $ou with a birthday during that  |ime may be feeling as if you've  Ipeen on vacation in the 'pits of  jHelP, it's time now to emerge  Into the light of day.  fr The problem is that you can  'get  lost   down   there,   and   I  strongly urge you to overcome  your   own   strong   need   for  |ecrecy and let someone help  $ou out. It could be some kind  of therapist, a trustworthy  friend or your spouse, but start  talking and sharing some of  those internal twists and turns  with someone.  If you were born between  November 4th and 8th, the next  two years will see you going  through major changes. Don't  be afraid to open up to those  who love you. Noone can take  away your power to control  your own life. Sharing can  make it easier.  them immediately to life. One  such is Alec McPhee of Telegraph Creek:  "Alec McPhee is a shorter,  more ebullient man. He has  blue eyes, yellow-silver hair and  a red toothless mouth. He  scrunches over his crossed knees  like a boy, sniffs a breath in  through his nose, and stares  boldly out the window to see  who's going to be coming past  next. When he speaks he shakes  his head and his whole body  shivers delightedly, because  everything that he finds to say  amazes and amuses him. He  was the town's gravedigger; he  was the carpenter and electrician; he was the powderman on  the public works crew whose  job was clearing the river of  snags. So he's a fortunate man,  he says, never to have blown  himself up or to have caught a  fever from a corpse...never having married, he has an uncared-  for, jumpy air that brings him  cookies and stews from the  widow next door and the nurse  down the street. He's an ir-  resistably blithe man, an urchinlike man..."  Characters like Alec, unforgettably etched, shuffle from  the pages of Hoagland's book  in a grizzled parade, stoic, vital,  humourous, one-of-a-kind men  who have called this sprawling  country home for most of their  lives. They speak of it intimately, lovingly, as a man speaks of  a special woman. They know its  mountains, forests and rivers  like the backs of their veined  and callused hands. Most of  them will die here.  Notes From the Century  Before is a haunting, delightful,  evocative book that almost  defies classification. For sheer  picturesque charm, it ranks with>  William Least Heat Moon's  classic of the American Road,  Blue Highways.

Table settings and service leave  nothing to be desired and the feeling of welcome extended,  especially to local diners, starts the evening off with a pleasant  glow.  But even more special is the food! Every Friday evening  there is a seafood buffet and salad bar with such variety that  it is hard to know where to begin. The best way is to take a little sample of each item, then go back and try those which you  did not manage the first time around. You can spend a whole  evening sampling a little bit of this and a little bit of that.  The salad bar alone is enough to satisfy my pallet as there  are 20 items there alone, including crispy greens, poached sea  trout which is set in the fridge to cool, then skinned and  decorated in an aspic. There is crab and tomato aspic, pickled  herring, raw oysters, water chestnuts... One needs to pause  and enjoy a glass of the house wine.  Now we head to the hot items and start off with a delicious  Manhattan seafood chowder which contains clams, crab,  scallops, halibut, shrimp, prawns, sole, cod and snapper.  The calamari, which is squid deep fried in batter is exquisite as is the Kariaki stir-fry with scallops and prawns.  Try the filet of sole Florentine, the Seafood Nuberg (a thick  chowder), the paupiettes of salmon in which the filet has been  rolled with spinach, poached, sliced and served with a Dijon  caper sauce. There are battered deep fried prawns and filet of  snapper in a Cardinal (tomato) sauce.  Dessert on this particular Friday was delicious apple strudel  served with coffee. The buffet varies each Friday but is  always superb.  The cost for all this? Hard to believe, but it's only $9.95.

Coast News, October 19,1987  IPiirTOSriGWi  Fall luncheon  highlights season  by Sam Walker  The ladies highlight this week  by topping off a great season of  golf with a fall luncheon. Blessed with continued fine golfing  weather the girls started their  day with an early round of golf.  After dusting the dew from  the greens Verna Belland came  in with the winning low gross  score and Marge Cumbers won  the low net. Dorothy Fisk won  Tic Tac Toe and Helen Crabb  was closest to the pin.  Following their game the girls  took over the clubhouse which  was tastefully decorated with  fall flower arrangements by  Ruth Norman. The house committee, under the direction of  Mary Walker, with assistance  from Louise McKay, Vera  Love, Irene Crabb and Betty  Reyburn, presented a sumptuous luncheon menu for all to  enjoy.  The business meeting that  followed included the presentation of awards and trophies and  a special gift for the retiring  ladies captain, Helen Crabb.  Elected to executive positions  for the coming year include Lois  Haddon, Ladies^ Captain;  Louise McKay, Vice Captain;  Sylvia Edwards, Secretary; and  Shirley Dumma, Treasurer.  Two mixed scrambles were  held this week with good turnouts of eager beavers enjoying  the dwindling days of good  golfing weather. The winner on  the October 10 outing was the  team of Dutch Haddon, Bob  Richardson and Verna Belland.  On Thanksgiving Day Jim  Menzies and Marge Harbord  took top honours.  Both days were topped off  with great buffet dinners  prepared by the ladies.  For fun and games and a few  laughs come out and join in.  Tee off time has been moved up  to 2:30 pm. Check with the Pro  Shop for the days to be scheduled.  The senior men were out in  strength on October 13 for a  round of 'Blind Partners' and  to add a little spice to our life,  Don Sleep, John Petula and  Paul Smith from the Sunshine  Coast Golf and Country Club  joined in.  George Langham took the  winning low gross score for the  day. Team play saw Murrell  Smith and Eldy Gandy tie with  Al Wendland and Don Sleep for  first place. Bart Dillabough and  Paul Smith were second. The  field bunched up with a three-  way tie for third place which included the teams of Ray Lafave,  John Willcock; Jim Buntain, Al  Solomon; and George Langham, Gordon Hall. Closest to  the pin on number three was  George Langham.  Club members are reminded  that there will be a Hallowe'en  dance on October 30. While  costumes are not mandatory, all  the ghosts, goblins, sheiks and  ballerinas are encouraged to put  their best foot forward to add to  the fun. It is suggested that an  all expense paid trip to Egmont  might be offered as a prize.  And from the 19th hole.  When asked about my golf  game an old duffer like me can  only reply, "The closest I have  come to a hole in one is six."

The exhibit was unveiled at its  new home at the school at the  School Board meeting on October 13.  Lloyd told the Board that  most of the objects had come  from the reserve at Garden Bay  and that the late Chief Dan  Johnson had given him permission to excavate and also helped  to identify the objects.  The collection includes hammers, masks, anchors, a throwing stone, a bailer and several  knives and scrapers.  Members of the Board suggested that it might be possible  to have the collection exhibited  in other school in the district.  TIDE TABLES  Tues.

She thanked  the Board for the increase in  library funding but took the  Board to task on the continued  inadequacies of the water  system at the school.  Secretary Treasurer Roy Mills  outlined the succession of unexpected problems that have been  faced in the attempts to provide  an acceptable water supply. He  felt that they were close to the  solution and Chairperson  Maureen Clayton declared, "By  Christmas, for sure!"  In other School Board news  the Board did not grant a request by Ms Debbie Sawchuk to  use the community use room at  Davis Bay school for after  school supervision of children  of working mothers because the  room is already used by several  other  groups.   Trustee   Doris  Fuller suggested that another  room might be made available  as there seemed to be a need for  the service.  The Board approved the purchase of a new 'cherry picker'  for the use of the maintenance  staff of the district. This apparatus is used for maintenance  work on the overheight ceilings  of all the gyms in the district.  The present cherry picker is not  high enough, resulting in a  dangerous situation for anyone  using it. The new model,  because of increased efficiency,  should pay for itself in a short  time.  The Board continues to  receive letters on the subject of  Peace Curriculum in the  schools. Although in the past,  several of the correspondents  have not been in favour of the  program, the four letters received at this meeting all expressed  approval of the project.  7 Discovering rhythm through play four children showed up for the  , first Rhythmic Motion classes held by Maggi Lindsay at the Wilson  "Creek Cub Scout Hall Saturday Morning.

The excitement and enthusiasm generated by the success of the Early French Immersion program has spawned interest in a Late French Immersion program which allows entry at the Grade 6 level.  The existence of Late Immersion permits the students and  the parents an option and it  allows those now in Grades 3,4  and 5 an opportunity to take  advantage of this federally  funded program to become bilingual Canadians.  An information meeting concerning Late Immersion has  been organized by the local  chapter of Canadian Parents  for French. This meeting will  feature guest speakers from the  North Shore who will share professional knowledge and personal experiences in the program. A teacher with Late Immersion teaching experience will  also answer questions.  Both parents and students are  encouraged to attend this  meeting on November 4 at 7 pm  in the Grade 1 room at Roberts  Creek Elementary School. It  has been noted that when the  student is wholeheartedly involved in the decision to participate in Late Immersion that  the results are exciting!

However, the accumulation of effluent in the  bottom of the bay has forced  the company to apply for permission to raise their trays off  the bottom, a change that  could affect upland use of the  bay, Gordon Wilson told last  week's meeting of the Sunshine  /Coast Regional District Planning Committee.  The referral came to the  committee from the Ministry  of Forests and Lands. "This is  the first time the ministry has  actually followed their stated  policy of referring a renewal  application when it involved a  change of process", Wilson  said.  The  committee  may  have  some trouble deciding on a  recommendation.    Wilson  pointed out that the change will  "directly impact upland use.4;f  On the other hand; the upland ^  use has directly impacted thisSf.��;  man's   ability   to   make 7a ; 7  living."  The committee agreed to  refer the matter to the Foreshore Task Force for their  comments.  The Ombudsman's office is  investigating the granting of  foreshore leases for the purpose  of aquaculture and preparing  recommendations to the provincial government. However,  Area A Director Gordon  Wilson lost his cool at last  week's meeting of the Regional  Board when Jim Gurney suggested that the Regional  District should submit their suggestions.  Wilson pointed out that  they've already sent mountains  of papers to the Minister of  Forests and Lands describing  the problems with the system.  8$SS88m*SSSSS&S��SSSSKSS88^^  TOURIST AND RECREATION GUIDE  ���www-w^'ww'wwwjrmmmmmmmmmmmnmmrmrmmmmmmnmm*^  P    ......       .... ...  v m) < -* ^ - v " .'���. - ��'s ?< ���>->- ?- -zm\  Robert Bull, director of 1401  Holdings, which owns a marina in Secret Cove, has learned  the hard way that it's important to keep on top of zoning  changes. In 1985, zoning in the  Secret Cove area was changed  and no one, including Mr.  Bull, noticed that his property  was no longer zoned for use as  a marina.  The situation came to the attention of the Regional Board  last week, at the planning committee meeting. Bull wrote to  the board that, "We purchased the property in 1980 with the  upland zoned C-5. We were  never informed by the SCRD  that anyone wanted to remove  the zoning."  While planner Jim Johnstone admitted that his department had failed to notify Mr.  Bull about the public hearings  regarding rezoning of the area,  directors agreed that nothing  could be done to remedy the  situation until Mr. Bull applies  for rezoning for his parcel.  7 Once the application is  received, however, it will have  to go through the public hearing process exactly as any other  application.  The sludge from the sewage  treatment   plant   in   Sechelt  could be used to reclaim land  after   gravel    extraction,  Regional    District   Works  Superintendent Gordon Dixon  told the meeting of the board  last week. Although the regional district will be going ahead  with the acquisition of a crown  land   parcel   for   the   future  disposal of the sludge, it is actually  going  to  be  kept  in  reserve   in   case   negotiations  with the Sechelt Indian Band  fall through. The preference,  Dixon said, would be to use the  waste material in land reclamation which would be a benefit  to everybody.  t��  j *i  COZY VP WITH A BOOK!

The Mth Guild  were the hosts at this convention and over 100 members were  in attendance.  It should be explained that  these meetings occur annually  and that each guild takes its  turn at hosting these events.  The ladies from the Mth  Guild put on a delicious supper  of lasagne under the guidance  of Olivia Seal and Enid Godkin.  This was followed by an  audio/visual presentation of the  General Assfembly/87 held in  England.    '  On Sunday, in the Retallack  Chapel situated delightfully in a  secluded place in the woods,  there was a dedication of plaques to the memories of Norman Rudolph and Charles Merrick, followed by a 'Scouts  Own' service conducted by the  Reverend John Godkin. This  was succeeded by a luncheon  and the annual meeting. Dinner  was salmon from our Sunshine  Coast, deliciously barbecued by  about four of the guilders headed by David Blair.  A splendid campfire was held  in the main lounge before the  fireplace. Roy and Shirley Mills  led and each of the Guilds performed a skit and song and  caused much amusement.  A touching moment occurred  at the close of the campfire  when Jim King, who is in his  nineties and nearly blind, stood  up before the group and said  that never, in all his life, had he  felt such an awareness of good  fellowship and love among a  group of people. Jim started  scouting in 1908 and has been  involved ever since.  Special thanks to Olivia and  Ron Seal, and Vivienne and  David   Blair  for  picking  up,  filleting and freezing the fish, to  the West Shore Fish Farm, to  Flo Collins for sharing her  coupon with us and to Helen  Adams for her ingenious table  decorations. At least 30 of our  Guilders made a terrific effort  behind the scenes to make the  Council the great success that it  was!  The Guilds represented were  as follows:  1st - Vancouver, 3rd -Cowichan Valley, 4th - Vancouver,  5th - Vernon, 9th - Burnaby,  13th - North Vancouver, 14th  -Sunshine Coast, 15th Parks-  ville, 17th - Vancouver, 19th  -Fraser Valley, 22nd -Prince  George, 24th - Summerland,  and the 8th Guild from Calgary,  Alberta also attended.  Grade Sevens move  to Pender Secondary  Both teachers and students  are unanimous in their approval  of the transfer of the Grade 7  class from the elementary  school to the high school in  Pender Harbour. At the October 13 meeting of the School  Baord which was held at Pender  Harbour Secondar School Principal   June   Maynard   con  gratulated the Board on its decision to make the move.  Teachers talked of the advantages of having 20 new and enthusiastic bodies in the school  and Superintendent Art Holmes  felt that the move had resulted  in greater achievement for the  students.  ��� APPLIANCE SERVICES ���  Refrigeration & _  Appliance Service  BACK AT PRATT RD. 886-9959  AUTO SERVICES  ��� CONCRETE SERVICES ���  Coast Concrete Pumping  & Foundations  r\  FREE ESTIMATES  John Parton     885-5537  fiUTOPRO  ROWLAND BRAKE  & MUFFLER  LIFETIME GUARANTEE*?^  on Mufflers - Brakes - Shocks - Springs (most vehicles)  I FREE INSPECTIONS      5546 Wharf rS3S ���  '      PENDER HARBOUR COLLISION^  Reet Autobody Repairs & Painting  Auto Glass - Etc.

Letters to the  SPCA needs help  ,-i  Dated September 8, 1987: File Number 2403582  eye HJt-i  ���   ..r .��� HI        I m  Randy Morrison  c  fm  c  ramm  C  C  >���������  fm  3  O  fm  Q  Editor:  Animal Health Week being  October 19 to 25, the Sunshine  Coast Branch of the  B.C.S.P.C.A. would like to bring to the public's attention,  some of the probems the  S.P.C.A. is facing in this area.  One of the main problems is  that the majority of pets do not  wear any identification. This  makes it very difficult for us to  trace the animals back to their  owner when lost. So please, pet  owners, put a collar on your pet  and even a telephone number  and it will make it so much  easier for everyone involved.  We are a very small group of  volunteers and we desperately  need more people to help us if  we are to keep this branch functioning. The cat shelter we have  in Gibsons handled nearly four  hundred cats and kittens this  past year and is kept going by  three members of one family,  two of which are working  parents. They find it increasingly difficult to keep on without  some help from other members  of the public. If anyone reading  this would like to help with  some of the cleaning and feed-;  ing of the cats and kittens, it  would be greatly appreciated.  During Animal Health Week,  the Canadian Veterinary.  Medical Association urges you  to make sure your pets are kept  in good health and are vaccinated regularly. Animal  Health Week is Canada-wide  and is fully supported by your  local S.P.C.A.  S.D.

Members of the Sunshine Coast Maritime Historical Society were  raising funds in Trail Bay Centre last week. ���Ken Collins photo  EDC hears reports  Tourism up  It was a good year for the  tourist industry on the Sunshine  Coast, according to the statistics  presented to the Economic  Development Commission  (EDC) by the Gibsons Chamber  of Commerce last week. Between the months^of May and  October this year, tourist inquiries were almost double what  they were for the same period of  time in 1986, prompting Chairman Maurice Egan to comment, "The $15,000 we invested  in the visitor information ser-  ; vices in Sechelt and Gibsons was  well spent."  Later, at the same meeting,  Brian Rubin reported on the  progress of Travel Sunshine  .Coast, the marketing arm of the  Tourism Task Force. On October 5th the group received a  ; ,$40,000 grant from the federal  .government to run an office and  hire three people to work full  time on implementing the  strategy for promoting the Sunshine Coast in targeted areas.  While Rubin credits some of  the increased business this year  to billboards and bus boards  advertising the Sunshine Coast  in Vancouver, an unexpected  boost came this year from a  travel feature about this area  that was published in the  Calgary Herald and Vancouver  Sun. The article in Calgary prompted six inquiries to Rubin's  own business, the Bonniebrook  Inn, the day after it ran.  Increased representation in  the   Tourist   Association   of  South-Western B.C., he said, is  a good indication that this area  is becoming better known, and  the number of registrants in a  workshop held last weekend by  Capilano College on 'Human  Relations in Tourism' shows  that local businesses are working hard to make this a major  industry on the Sunshine Coast.  Kratzmann  committee  meets  The Kratzmann Committee  continues to be concerned with  the necessity of producing a set  of guidelines so the type of  situation that occcured here involving sexual abuse does not  recur.  The questions are being looked at from several different  angles: the qualities and  characteristics of the district  superintendent, the qualities  and characteristics of teachers,  the procedures to be followed  should sexual abuse be suspected by any school board  employee, the treatment  available to victims and the  guidance available to parents.  The committee members  come from several different  community groups, the School  Board, the Sunshine Coast  Teacher's Association, the  Ministry of Social Services and  Housing and the RCMP.

On October 12 there was a  report of a missing dinghy or  cartop boat, a 10-foot  aluminum Springbok.  On the same day there was a  theft from a locked Honda  Civic, red in colour, of eight  cassette tapes. The car was in  the Sunnycrest Mall parking lot.  The thief pried the window  open on the driver's side  sometime between 2 and 5 pm.  Phone 886-TIPS.  At 3:30 pm, October 12, the  Coast Guard airlifted an injured  hiker from the Rainy River area  near Port Mellon to Vancouver.  A Roberts Creek male was  found to be in satisfactory condition after examination in the  hospital.  A 35mm camera has been  found between Soames and  Granthams. Refer to file  87-2974 at the RCMP station.  At 10:16 on October 14 police  were called to the scene of a  motor vehicle accident at  Glassford and Gower Point  Roads. The driver left the site  after his car had veered off the  road and damaged a fire  hydrant. The vehicle was  located a few hours later by the  police and a 22-year old Gibsons male was charged under  two sections of the Motor Vehicle Act; namely, section 149(a)  driving without due care and attention, and section 62(3) failing  to remain at the scene...  Police release the following  information: "After trying to  get a refund from a US travel  promoter when she changed her  mind about the deal, a Mission,  B.C. resident wrote to the  following address and was  quickly reimbursed:  "Office of the Attorney-  General, Consumer's Protection   Division,    1266   Dexter-  Horton   Building,   Third  Avenue, Seattle 9S104."  SECHELT RCMP  Block Parent Week has been  proclaimed from Monday, October 19 to Sunday, October 25.  Police are investigating a  break and entry at Tri Photo in  Sechelt. The window was  smashed and cameras and  equipment valued at $3500 were  taken.  CAN YOU INVEST  THE OILS SAFELY?  for ideas and advice:  GORDON ROSS  661-2332 Collect  P.O.
