Array Spok  Legislative Library  Parliament Buildings  Victoria, B.C. V8V 1X4  88.8  like canal eithe  vj joei Johnstone  Mike Evans has never seen a  gravel crushing operation and  he doesn't want to see one in  Sechelt.  So much so, he presented  Sechelt Council with a list of  200 responses he received from  his newspaper advertisement  petitioning against the Sechelt  Indian Band's gravel extraction  plans in what he calls the "middle of Sechelt."  Evans, who lives in West  Sechelt, says the operation  would have "a horrific  impact" and be "a horrific  eyesore" which is going to  drastically alter what Sechelt  looks like.  The proposed extraction  operation by Construction Aggregates, owned by Genstar,  calls for the mining of gravel  from 150 ares of SIB land with  topsoil removed and then  replaced in the wake of the  operation to leave the land open  for development by the band.  A gravel crushing plant  would be located somewhere in  the vicinity of a quarter to half-  mile south by east of St.  Mary's Hospital, which sits on  land previously held by the  band who donated it for the  location of the hospital.  In his presentation to council, Evans said the gravel operation would drastically affect his  and others lifestyles in the area  due to noise, dust, and the  aesthetically unpleasing prospect of having a 900 to 1000  foot conveyor belt extending  out into Trail Bay for the purpose of loading gravel onto  barges.  Mayor Bud Koch says it isn't  likely the Village of Sechelt can  put a stop to the Band's plans,  because "We would have to  come up with an alternative in  the form of compensation to  alter such plans."  The band, he says has completed all the preliminary  studies and processed their  plans through all the proper  channels they require in order  to go ahead.  Koch says he is against any:  . gravel extraction in the immediate Sechelt area, but in a  previous council meeting he  and some aldermen have said if  there is going to be a barge  loading   facility   they   would  - rather see the conveyor extended out into Porpoise Bay rather  than Trail Bay.  Though somewhat resigned  to the prospect of extraction on  ".' the Sechelt Band land, he does  think something can be done  about the possibility 6f Construction Aggregates expanding  - its operations into an additional 250 acres of land owned  by Canadian Forest Products  Ltd. and Crown land.  "If it comes onto Crown  7 land we can deal with it."  He says that council has  written to 10 provincial cabinet  ministers and the premier asking them to reconsider plans to  trade the Hillside land for land  in the Port Mellon area owned  by Genstar.  The SCRD would like to set  up a Forest Product Industrial  Park and tank farm at the Port  Mellon site. Genstar would  benefit from the trade by being  able to expand its 160-acre  operation on the Band land to  the acquired, adjacent land.  The deal, Koch says, has  "been put on hold" so the province can find out what they're  getting in return for the gravel.  As alternatives go, Koch says  there should be a study into the  feasibility of constructing an  estimated $28 million canal  from Sechelt Inlet to Trail Bay.  This, if it became a reality,  could alter the conveyor plans  by making it economically  sound for Construction Aggregates to extend it out into  Porpoise Bay.  "It would open up a complete new vista for the Sunshine  Coast there's no doubt about  it," because of the recreational  and commercial boost it would  give both the Inlet and Sechelt.  Koch said earlier in council that  $40,000 or $50,000 would be  needed to do such a study.  Evans, however, says "Unfortunately I'm against that  Please turn to page 6  The Sunshine  -���.ft*���***'"'*-.

Interest in the sport is coming from the most unexpected  quarters.  ���Joel Johnstone photo  Mayor makes move  The Sunshine Coast  Regional Board, with;the exception of Gibsons representative Alderman Norm Peterson, feels its economic future is  closer aligned with Vancouver  Island than the Lower  Mainland Vancouver area. The  Board took this position at last  Thursday's Regional Board  meeting when a copy of a letter  from Powell River was received  protesting to Premier Bill  Vander Zalm the new structuring of Development Regions.  "I have already expressed to  my MLA Harold Long, the fact  that the Sechelt Peninsula  should be immediately put into  Development Region No. 1,"  states Powell River Mayor Col-  it Palmer ih>his letter. "There  is no rationale for putting it into Region No. 2." The Sunshine .Coast has been included  with the Lower Mainland and  Powell River with Vancouver  Island.  "We share mutual concerns  on Highway 101, the ferry  system, forestry, aquaculture,  and tourism," Mayor Palmer  explains.  Director Gordon Wilson was  adamant in his support, "We  have got to support this letter.  We have built our allegiances  and alliances socially and  economically toward Vancouver Island for the last five  years."  "We must stress our unity,"  added Director Brett  McGillivray, "We share the  Georgia Strait."  From SCRD  Regional Board Chairman:  Jim Gurney was straight and to  the point. "My concern is not  that we won't be noticed but  that we might." He said, "We  may be the recipient of industries and businesses on the  coast that we may not want."  Alderman Norm Peterson's  opposition was simply stated.  "We are doing an Industrial  Park down there," he said.'  "We are not going to attract  business from Vancouver  Island."  by Ken Collins  Council meetings to be televised  Using her powers as Mayor,  Diane Strom sprung live television coverage of council  meetings on the aldermen last  Tuesday, calling for them to  reconsider their decision ��� or  indecision ��� last January  where the motion was made  and never voted on because a  seconder couldn't be found.  Since at that time, the motion was tabled, Strom had  then reminded aldermen she  could raise the motion at any  time in the future.  When Strom brought the  motion forward the discomfort  on the part of Dixon and  Alderman Norm Peterson was  evident, with Alderman Lilian  Kunstler nervously glancing  about the gallery. Alderman  Bob Maxwell seemed impassive  but appeared to enjoy the prospect of a vote.  Trying to convince the shy,  Strom noted "even small communities televise ��� their council  meetings," and that this  coverage would only be once a  month.  "Election or not it's important to reach as many people as  possible," Strom said.  Coast Cable's Channel 11  Program Manager Steve Sleep  says, "I think it's great. We've  been trying to get access from  them for some time now."  Last January, Sleep proposed to council that meetings  would be broadcast live in their  entirety and an edited version  would be saved for news broad-  exists  At that time, he says, Strom  had approved of the idea in  principle but "I didn't get  anything official back and I  wasn't allowed to attend the  meeting" and "didn't get a  written   reply   from   Gibsons  because they were still working  on it."  A similar request to Sechelt  Council received a reply from  Alderman Malcolm Shanks on  behalf of council saying the  District of Sechelt would not  allow council broadcasts  because of space requirements  limiting the gallery to public attendance.  Shanks stated if more space  were available Sechelt Council  would reconsider.  "If all goes well," Sleep  says, "we'll have to see what  Sechelt thinks of Gibsons  coverage. They'll either jump  at it or say 'thank god we voted  that down."  In the meantime, in Gibsons,  Sleep says Channel 11 will have  to wait for official notice that  coverage is approved before  they go ahead and lay down  sublines from their studio in  Elphinstone School to the  council chambers. Another  part of the process would be to  arrange with council access to  the chambers in advance of  meetings to allow them to set  up lights and cameras and  prepare their equipment.  If it does happen, "Good for  council," he says, because "I  feel that if you are going to be  in politics you're going to have  the aspect of television."  The vote in Gibsons did,  however, show that the prospect  of being on television was one  any ordinary person would be  somewhat cautious of as Maxwell put forward the motion  and a seconder, Alderman  Kunstler, had to be urged by  Mayor Strom because it was  clear Peterson and Dixon were  not going to.  It was a two-two tie and  Strom, being the deciding vote  in any tie, carried the motion.  "I've got to get my good  clothes now," Dixon said.  Fires of old were rekindled  briefly at last Thursday's  Regional Board Meeting when  the District of Sechelt requested the SCRD to hold a  referendum in Areas "A",  "B", and "D" asking electors  if they would be in favour of  contributing to the Arena  Deficit.  Director Brett McGillivray  stated his Area Planning Commission would not be holding a  referendum for the arena. "My  APC were not very kind  because they have long  memories." He stated in his  oratory, "They are upset by the  procedures by which this arena  came about. They remember  the need for a coast wide facility. Then they get an arena  somewhere in the tullies in  Sechelt and a pool in Gibsons.  Now there are rumours of a  sports centre. They have no intention of carrying on a  referendum for the area."  Director Gordon Wilson  stated he had to take it back to  his APC but voiced disapproval that Sechelt had opted  out of Parks, Planning,,and  earlier in the same meeting, the  EDC.  In that letter, Sechelt Administrator Malcolm Shanks  informed the SCRD that  Sechelt, with the approval of  the Deputy Minister of  Municipal Affairs, would be  opting out of the EDC for 1988  but would be pleased to cooperate with their consultants.  Director Wilson moved a motion to allow Sechelt to do what  they were going to do and  pointed out that in his mind a  violation of protocol had occurred. "I find it interesting  that an Administrator is addressing the Board," he stated.  Skateboard centre sought  Don't play on the road.  A common term many of us  probably heard during childhood. But with the advent of  the skateboard and its current  popularity it is likely it is being  heard quite often, if not more.  "I have children who  skateboard all over town for  one thing," Rieta Hanson says,  and she wants them to have  someplace to go where fun isn't  so much a game of chance.  She thinks she has a solution  and she stepped forward at Gibsons Council last Tuesday and  asked  "If council  would set -  aside a piece of ground for a  skateboard bowl?  "If there was a place set aside  we would begin fundraising,"  but the idea is at such a  preliminary stage she is not sure  what the costs might be.  She told council North Vancouver has a skateboard bowl  which was built at a relatively  low cost "with basic insurance  and there have been no claims  yet."  Most everyone appeared in  favour, but Mayor Diane Strom  pointed out that because of problems other towns and cities,  have had in the past "We must  look at insurance before approval of this."  Alderman Gerry Dixon said  "The largest concern is the  liability factor" and recommended Hanson come to the  Recreation Committee the  following evening.  Hanson did,  and says she  received a pretty favourable  response.  "They're going to look into  the liability," and they want a  proposal in writing.  As for materials and labour,  Hanson hopes to approach local  merchants for donations  because "there's not a lot of  materials." The labour would  also be voluntary if all goes  well.  But first she needs approval  for the plan she says developed  "for my children and a lot of  my friends children."  SCRD organizes  Director Brett McGillivray made a motion at Thursday's  SCRD meeting to have an 'organizational meeting'. He moved it should be a closed meeting so he could discuss a 'whole  host of things'.  His proposal generated neither opposition or discussion  and the Board quickly set aside the day of October 24 for  whatever they will do. They will be starting at 9 am at an undisclosed location.  New Arts Community Co-ordinator Carole Rubin will undertake  the task by marketing and promoting local artists and art organizations on the Sunshine Coast. ���Joel Johnstone Dhoto  ���^^ffV"-^^!^ ���  TTT**"' ���  Wr~��'  Ja.  7  A*  1      /  t     i  /< 2.  Coast News, October 12,1987  (  Optimism  difficult  The sweeping so-called decentralization proposals which  have been announced by Premier Vander Zalm are predictably getting a mixed reaction on the Sunshine Coast.  By and large, the municipalities are in favour of change  because they feel, more than likely, that the new alignment  will get them out from under the blanket of control which  they have come to regard as inevitable from the Sunshine  Coast Regional District.  The SCRD, on the other hand, can see their primacy  slipping away and most of the ruling clique regret any  change to the status quo which may affect their  supremacy. The chairman, Jim Gurney, as was pointed  out not too long ago, tends to favour economic development during his tenure and oppose it during his election  campaigns and his stated fear that the wrong kind of  development may result can be dismissed as his usual preelection appreciation of rural values.  There are three aspects which give some cause for concern, it seems to us.  First, despite Gurney's stated fears, it is more than likely  that the Sunshine Coast will tend to get lost in the shuffle  of the giant district including the Fraser Valley to which it  has been assigned.  Secondly, the fact is that the only area in the province  with which we have something in common is the northern  half of the Sunshine Coast as Mayor Palmer of Powell  River correctly points out. The association with Vancouver  Island, despite Director Gordon Wilson's fervour, has  never worked because it is an artificial connection. The last  five years and some years before that have been largely  spent by Sunshine Coast representatives lamenting the fact  that the Association of Vancouver Island Municipalities  ignored their existence.  Director Brett McGillivray asserts that we have Georgia  Strait in common, but that observation deserves to be  given as much weight as most of McGillivray's earnest offerings.  So, we have been cut off from the northern half of the  Sunshine Coast, separated into the Fraser Valley. What  else do we have to worry about?  The premier's plan, as outlined last week, calls for two  'separate regional working groups'. One group will 'concentrate and focus on economic development'...'whilst the  other will target its activities on government services'.  We quote: "In turn these two regional groups will be  backed up and supported by government resource teams  that will help in their work and also undertake specific  assignments in the regions."  Later on: "And to keep projects and information flowing on time and on track, we will be appointing Regional  Development Officers in both the Minister of State's office  and his region."  In these appointments may lie cause for more concern.  There are those whose track record would preclude them  from holding responsible office locally but whose political  credentials may well see them appointed to crucial posi- ,  tions by the outside body.  In a nutshell, there will be lack of control over  developments; these will take place in a context which  separates us from our natural association with Powell  River and could see us getting lost in the shuffle. If we are  not lost in the shuffle we may find ourselves being presided  over by those who could not win office on the Sunshine  Coast by any other means than political patronage.  It is difficult in the circumstances to be optimistic.  .from th* files of the COAST NEW8  5 YEARS AGO  The pride and excitement of Canada's gold medal  wins at the Commonwealth Games in Brisbane,  Australia was felt very close to home.  Chris Rinke of Port Coquitlam won a gold medal in  the 82 kilogram class in Wrestling.

Ferry and Marine workers today met in mass  meetings throughout the province, and have decided virtually unanimously that they will not return to work until  a collective agreement is reached.  20 YEARS AGO  As the Bratford report to the Sunshine Coast  Regional District suggests, the discharge of 160  vehicles from the proposed new ferry, the Sunshine  Coast Queen, could be beyond the ability of the present  road system to accommodate.  30 YEARS AGO  This year Canada Savings Bonds will return 3% per  cent for the first two years and A3A per cent on the remaining eleven coupons. This works out to an average  yield at maturity of 4.46 per cent.  40 YEARS AGO  Pulp Queen at Port Mellon Labour'Day celebrations  was Miss M. Stevens. She was crowned by retiring ���  queen Miss E.

Long John Baldry  The story of Long John  Baldry gives ample evidence  that here is a man who can  recognize and give encouragement to the talent of others. The  names of those who have found  their start in the music business  with Long John and gone on to  become super stars in their own  right reads,like 'Who's Who' of  the top ranks of the greats.  Those who were fortunate  enough to catch Long John's  act at Elphie's Cabaret last  Thursday saw ample evidence  that the knack of recognizing  and nurturing the talent of  others is undiminished by. the  years. Quite simply, the talent  of those appearing with the,,,  fabled blues artist at Elphie's  last week was awesome.  First to catch the ear was  Bruce Coulter of Montreal on  the blues harmonica. Everything that you ever wanted blues  harmonica to be and then some  more, that's what Coulter gave.  It was apparent from his first  solo runs that here was a special  talent and Long John Baldry  made it clear that he thought so  too, giving the Montreal native  the first of several introductions  and appreciations within five  minutes of the opening of the  first set.  Then there was Papa John  King from Thornhill, Ontario  on the blues guitar.  "How can someone so young  and with such a blonde baby  face be called Papa John  King?" Fran wondered near the  beginning of the first set.  Before the set was finished I  leaned over during a break and  suggested that maybe his name  had more to do with his ability  than his years because if the  guitar can be played better in a  blues context by anyone I'd  have to hear it to believe it.  Then there was Kathi  McDonald, the perfect counterpoint to Long John, tiny and  ebullient, and vocally extraordinarily dynamic, she knocked  the crowd over with her offerings.  "That lady can wail," said  Long John by way of tribute,  and Jon Van Arsdell came by  and made comparison with the  all-out pourings of Janis  Joplin and surely the similarity  had occurred to others.  And what of the man  himself. Long John Baldry was  deceptively low-key, he growled  a few tributes to the masters of  the blues in his first set with the  exquisite understatement of a  man who knew he had nothing  to prove in the next five  minutes; he gracefully :ahd  generously acknowledged  several times the talents of those  working with him; he occasionally charmed the crowd  with anecdotes and occasionally  clowned; and above all he  presided. He presided over the  gathering with assured  benevolence, his gaunt and  lived-in frame stamping as  authentic and enduring the  blues stylings and energies of  the others. Wasted and wonderful, his presence assured us that  the requisite dues had been paid  on behalf of the group.  If the first set was wonderful,  the second was the stuff that  raises goosebumps. The same  exquisite ingredients with the  spiritual spices more generously  added. The longest anecdote of  the night introduced the classic  Don't Lay No Boojie Woojie  on the King of Rock and Roll  with Baldry recounting a tale of  street arrest for playing his  guitar in the early days outside  of theatres, including effective  mimicry of the arresting officer  and the next morning's judge..  Thus set in context, the song  was given a truly rousing rendition by all four. They immediately topped that high  point by charging through with  energy and abandon I Got My  Mojo Working, But Not With  You, and brought the set to a  close to tumultuous applause.  Ah yes, there was an encore.  Long John shambled sheepishly  out in the face of the applause  and, standing for the first time,  joined forces with Kathi  McDonald and the sidemen in a  moving and powerfully beautiful rendition of I've Got That  Loving Feeling and brought the  house down again.  This was a group that knew  what they were going to do  when they stepped on stage: the  program set, the instruments in  tune. Long John Baldry and  friends gave us a memorable  evening on the Sunshine Coast.  May they come back soon.  My long two-pointed ladder's sticking through a tree  Toward heaven still,  And there's a barrel that Ididn't fill  Beside it, and there may be two or three  Apples I didn 't pick upon some bough.  But I am done with apple-picking now.  Essence of winter sleep is on the night,  The scent of apples: I am drowsing off  I cannot rub the strangeness from my sight  I got from looking through a pane of glass  I skimmed this morning from the drinking trough  And held against the world of hoary grass.  Ft melted, and I let it fall and break.  But I was well  Upon my way to Sleep before it fell,  And I could tell  What form my dreaming was about to take.  Magnified apples appear and disappear  Stem end and blossom end,  And every fleck of russet showing clear.  My instep arch not only keeps the ache,  It keeps the pressure of a ladder-round.  I feel the ladder sway as the boughs bend.  And I keep hearing from the cellar bin  The rumbling sound  Of load on load of apples coming in.  For I have had too much  Of apple-picking; I am overtired  Of the great harvest I myself desired.  There were ten thousand thousand fruit to touch,  Cherish in hand, lift down, and not let fall.  For all  That struck the earth,  No matter if not bruised or spiked with stubble,  Went surely to the cider-apple heap  As of no worth.  One can see what will trouble  This sleep of mine, whatever sleep it is.  Were he not gone,  The woodchuck could say whether it's like his  Long sleep, as I describe its coming on,  Or just some human sleep.

Mention  a spelling bee for fun and  everyone looks at you as if you  were crazy.  However, that is just what  St. John, New Brunswick did  last year, and their community  spelling bee was a great success.  I heard about it on CBC  Radio's "Morningside" and  thought, hey, maybe that's  something we could do on  community television.  I ran the idea up the flagpole  for the Toastmasters, they  seemed to me to be the natural  group to enjoy something like  this, having an interest in  words. They thought it would  be   fun  and   volunteered  to  organise the games. They have  enthusiastically drawn up rules  and they're all set to go, with  lists of words in closed  envelopes, so that there is no  chance of words being tailored  to any particular team, and  have members ready to take  their turn as wordmaster,  timer, scorer etc.  They've not chosen those  obscure words which relate to  specific disciplines and which  you and I might not have a clue  how to spell, but the ordinary  everyday words with which all  of us are familiar, even if we  may make mistakes sometimes.  I slipped up in a trial game by  missing the double "r" in embarrass.  All they need now is the  teams. They are looking for  teams of two and there are  three categories: - twelve years  and under which will include  Elementary schools and youth  groups; 13-18 yrs, High  Schools and older youth  groups, and adults over 18  years.  What contributed to the success in St. John was that  everyone got into the act, and  put up a team, the Service  clubs, the doctors, dentists, the  churches, newspapers, radio  stations, the merchants.  Challenges went out from the  Esso garage to the Shell, from  the Aldermen to the School  trustees etc. Of course you  don't have to belong to a  recognisable group to get on a  team, anyone can play.  All you have to do is get  together with a friend,  neighbour or relative and  dream up a snappy name for  your team, it only needs two  people.  Community Television will  pre-tape the contests and run a  half hour each week, when it  comes to the play-offs by  which time everyone will be  pros and confident, we will  have a whole evening so  everyone can enjoy the excitement, live.  We are working on prizes for  each category.  To enter all you have to do is  write your team's name and  participants with a telephone  number where you can be  reached and mail it to  Toastmaster's Spelling Bee,  Box 652, Sechelt, B.C. VON  3AO and you'll be notified of  time and place of the first  round and who you'll play  against.  Never mind how well you  think you can spell, you'll probably surprise yourself.  Come and join us and have  fun. Coast News, October 12,1987  Editor,  "L'avion" - suspension from  iron bars with hands and legs  tied behind the back;  "Le Perroquet" (The parrot)  -same as above, with hands and  legs tied in front;  'Black   slave"  a   heated  skewer inserted in the victim's  anus;  (Pet names torturers from  various countries have given to  their methods and treatments.)  Yes, the very idea of those  "pet names" is shocking, and  so is the brutal physical reality  behind them: every day, in one  third of the world's countries,  men, women and even children  are terrorized, maimed and  killed by official torturers. You  don't have to be a criminal to  be a torture victim. In many  places, it's enough to have a  different skin colour, a different religion, or to have  dared to express your political  belief.  And when the torture is  over, it's still not over. Those  who survive may be haunted all  their lives by pain, disability,  nightmares, anxiety and an  aching sense of humiliation.  Last year, I read Amnesty  International's "Torture File"  newsletter at a particularly  vulnerable point. I had just  seen the disturbing Argentinian  film "The Official Story". The  visual and written images of  horror came together for me at  the height of the glittering holiday season in New York; that  gruesome dissonance jolted me  into writing a column about  Amnesty's work against torture.  I wasn't a member then, buti  it seems appropriate to share it  now with others who have not  yet made a commitment to!  Amnesty.  And finally, having expressed my outrage in that column, I  put a stop to years of vague  good intentions, sat down, and  sent a cheque to Amnesty so I  could become a member.  Of course, I'd always been a  supporter and admirer of  .Amnesty .International. Al is  universally respected: no one  can accuse it of bias,-because it  is rigorously independent of  any government, political party, religion or ideology. We  members come from all  political and religious points of  view. What we share is a commitment to human rights and a  determination to end torture.  With painstaking impartiality, Amnesty tracks down and  investigates cases of prisoners  of conscience anywhere in the  world. The "disappeared", the  silenced, those who are  hopelessly imprisoned,  sometimes for years, without  charges or trial���if they have  not used or counselled  violence, Amnesty International is their watchdog and  their advocate.  Left or right, governments  tremble when Amnesty issues  its country-by-country reports  of unjust imprisonment and  torture. They know that  Amnesty will shed light on  prison cells they would prefer  to keep dark; they know that  political pressure will instantly  follow, so high is Amnesty's  credibility with the media and  the public.  Now that I'm a member (and  Council member) of Amnesty  International, and get regular  mailings, I'm even prouder of  our work. I can see, step by  step, how Amnesty International dedicates itself to accuracy and truth. We send  medical teams around the  world to examine prisoners.  We dispatch legal representatives to assist men and  women on trial. We collect  photographic evidence of torture and abuse. We examine,  for credibility, every eyewitness report we receive. We  work for fair and early trials  for all political prisoners. We  steadfastly oppose the death  penalty and all cruel, inhuman  or degrading treatment of  prisoners everywhere.  I know that your mail, like  mine, is filled with desperate  pleas like this one, for a whole  rainbow of important causes.  And I know how conscientious  people struggle to choose the  worthiest - no one has  unlimited funds to give away.  Amnesty International, I  would argue, is among the  most urgently deserving of  your support. The problem is  brutally immediate; Amnesty's  principles crystal-clear; its  methods honorable and  scrupulous; its results  dramatic.  Won't you please become  part of the solution? Join me  today in supporting the vital  work of Amnesty International. Your donation of $25,  $50, $100, or whatever you  wish to send, will mean new  hope for some lonely, terrified  prisoner.  Thank you very much for  your active support.  Michele Landsberg  P.S. The ugliness and horror  won't go away while we delay  taking action; human rights  violations around the world are  increasing at a frightening rate.  Hospital  footnote  Editor,  An unhappy footnote to  your report on St. Mary's  Hospital bed closures is that  two full-time and three part-  time employees will have to be  laid off. In addition, the  hospital will use fewer hours of  casual and relief staffing until  the funding problem is corrected.  We expect these and other  cost saving measures being  taken by doctors, employees  and the board will bring the  hospital back to a break-even  course as soon as possible.

Coast News, October 12,1987  s  by John Burnside  2  P  The Gibsons business community lost one of its most active participants last week when  George Giannakos passed away  after a lengthy illness.  Born in Greece, the son of a  restauranteur, George graduated from school in Sparti and  joined the Greek Air Force as  an air force mechanic. In 1958  ��� he   became   engaged   to   his  ^���childhood sweetheart, Georgia,  a^whom he married the next year  in Montreal.  At the time of the move to  Canada, George's English was  limited to 'No' and 'Thank  you'. The couple's first son,  Tarry, was born in Montreal  where George was working as a  jeweller-watchmaker.  Shortly after Tarry's appearance, George saw greater  opportunities in Toronto and  entered the trucking business  there. Gus, the second son, was  born in Toronto.  The hunger for a setting for  his family which was more like  the Mediterranean was  something George couldn't lose  and a trip to B.C. in 1969 led to  him moving his family and the  trucking business to the West  Coast that same year.  In 1972 he opened the first  !  I  I  I  I  rZ  s  George Giannakos, pictured in Greek costume during a Greek  Night at the Omega last year. ���Kay Smith photo  Omega Restaurant in Killarney  Shopping Centre in Vancouver  and the enterprise proved highly  successful.  George first saw Gibsons during a fishing trip to the Sunshine  Coast and immediately decided  that here was the place he had  been looking for. In 1974 the  Omega in Vancouver was sold  and the family moved to Gibsons.  The opening of the Omega  Restaurant in Gibsons Landing  brought a series of firsts to the  Coast and its location and  quality of its food earned it an  enduring and enthusiastic  clientele. It is still operated by  Mrs. Giannakos and the two  sons.  Besides being one of the key  forces behind the development  of Gibsons Harbour, George  was unfailingly generous in his  support of the young people of  the community.  A tribute read at his  memorial service was written by  Dan Cross and acknowledged  with warmth and admiration  the assistance that George unfailingly provided for the youth  activities of the community.  t*    l*v>l��lQ     R��yal Canadian Legion #109     iffS  (^a^r      & Ladles Auxiliary .OW]  Meetings, Banquets, Weddings...

Coast News, October 12,1987  Imif^f^^PDII  by Gladys Coates  There was a good turnout for  the October meeting on Mon-  day with many new faces, which  ��� we welcome and look forward  to having active participation in  all our activities.  The grounds have taken on a  .. new look with much more park-  : iiig space. Thanks to Dick  Blakeman and Ed Davies for  doing the lines on the main  parking area. The trimming of  the shrubbery is also an improvement. There is still more  work to be done outdoors and  Jim Monroe has lined up  volunteers.  The interior of the hall also  had a facelift with a professional cleaning job, now it is up  : to all of us to keep it that way.  Plans are underway for the  Christmas dinner on Friday,  December 11, and with the help  and cooperation of all able-  bodied members it should be an  enjoyable affair.  A committee is also set up for  the New Year's Eve party.  All signs are go for carpet  bowling each Wednesday at  1:00 pm; ceramics on Thursday  at 1:30 pm; painting classes on  Friday at 10:00 am. There are  also darts after bowling on  Wednesdays; Tai Chai on  Tuesdays at 1:30 pm and each  Friday night at 7:30 pm, whist  and crib, followed by a few  rounds of darts.  The pool table, though little  used is always available. It is a  good table and we would like to  see more use made of it. The  last Friday fun night of each  month is preceeded by a pot  luck dinner. The food is always  delicious, so come and bring  your favourite casserole, desert,  or whatever.  Jean Roberts has arranged a  tour to Bowen Island by bus  and ferry for Monday, October  19 to leave Harmony Hall at  8:00 am and return on the 3:30  pm ferry from Horseshoe Bay.  Public bingo in Harmony  Hall commences on Thursday,  November 5, at 7:15 pm. So  come on down, there is lots of  parking space, a non-smokers  room, good food, good prizes  -and a congenial atmosphere.  November 2 at 1:30 pm is our  annual meeting, at which time a  new president and secretary will  be chosen.  Jim Monroe has served very  well as president over the past  four years in spite of many personal difficulties, and his cheery  and charming personality will  be missed, but he leaves with the  satisfaction of a job well done.  Marj Leslie, our extremely  able and energetic secretary has  also had a long term in office,  but I'm sure Marj will always be  on hand whenever help is needed.  Don't forget to bring your  ticket stubs for the seniors lottery to the next meeting, also  receipts from the SuperValu.  Lucky winners of the door prize  were Ed Connor and Jim  Monroe.  See you all at the November  meeting, and remember new  ideas and suggestions are always  welcome.  Gardening notes  by Marguerite  The cheapest way to fill your  garden with permanent colour  is with herbaceous perennials  and now's the time to plan  them.  Though I say permanent,  most, of course, do die down in  the winter. But they'll appear  each spring to produce a wide  variety of flower, form and  foliage. What's more, those  tiny ones you buy from the  garden centre will increase in  size year after year until they  make large clumps, each with a  mass of flowers.  Prepare the ground well  before planting with some well  rotted manure, garden compost or peat, and, raking in a  dusting of bonemeal plant in  groups of three, five or seven,  keeping buds just below the soil  surface, water well in and  mulch with leaves, grass, hay  etc. later, to protect from very  cold weather.  The Gibsons Garden Club  will hold its meeting on Thursday, October 15 in the Marine  Room, (below the library) at  7:15 sharp. The speaker Mr.  Doug Hosgood of Vancouver,  from the Rose Society, will talk  on the subject of "Rose  culture".  Old and new members and  guests welcome.

Gillnetters on  the reserve give their catches at this time of year to any band family  who wants them and Earl and Rena Dixon and the Joe's: Wayne,  Sylvia, Lanie, and Samantha, prepared 125 goodsized fish this year  under the supervision of Benny Joe. ���Joel Johnstone photo  Petition opposes  gravel extraction  Continued from page 1  too. To me it's just as bad as  gravel extraction." He said he  cannot accept the idea of what  he believes would be an  80-foot-wide canal running  through downtown Sechelt.  In council, Evans said he  wasn't really going to be one to  provide an alternative.  "What I would ask council  to do is take a look at these  plans. We need someone to go  to bat for us, represent us,  because we've had enough of  Call Us  Maybe We Can Help  Actio*  it**" "^  886-2425    Tues.-Fri., 10-4  letter writing to the editor."  Alderman Ken Short stood  by his previous stand that  council should sit down and  talk to the Band about this  issue.  Koch also stood by his  previous statement that the  public would have its say and  its day in court.  Evans says he doesn't hold  anything against anybody and  that his action is only because  "I was raised in Sechelt. I have  a real love for the area and for  the town."  But in council chambers  before leaving Evans also said  he doesn't mind what other  people do "As long as what  they do doesn't affect my  lifestyle..."  The Sechelt Indian Band has  requested their commentary on  the issue not be for publication  as the agreement has been signed and it is now in the hands of  Construction Aggregates, who  has only to acquire a mining  permit in order to begin operations.  The semi-annual meeting of  the Sunshine Coast Regional  Council of the Senior Citizens  Association of B.C. was held in  our hall on October 7. Olive  Marshall and her several  helpers were on hand early to  prepare an excellent "soup and  sandwich" lunch. The delegation from Powell River arrived  shortly after 11 am and the  Pender Harbour representatives shortly thereafter.  An informal discussion took  place over coffee prior to  lunch. The meeting was called  to order by chairperson Adele  deLange shortly after 1 pm to  discuss the business of the  Council's 1060 members.  The St. John's Ambulance  Healthy Aging Program was  discussed at length. This is a  program of Seniors helping  Seniors. It would entail a group  of at least ten seniors who are  interested in achieving optimal  health or ''state of wellness".  They would choose four to  eight topics of health to explore  under a volunteer instructor  who would quite probably be a  retired nurse, druggist,  physiotherapist, etc. and would  recruit and develop the program.  Possibly one of our  members, who is a retired professional, would care to investigate this program, and  develop it for our local branch.  Our provincial president,  Evelyn Olson, reported on her  attendance in Sydney, Nova  Scotia at the National Pensioners and Senior Citizens  Federation. You will recall  from past columns that the National Body is our representation to Government at the  Federal level on behalf of  Seniors nationwide.  The First Seniors Resource  Society was discussed. This  centralized body was formed  recently to gather research  items of interest and of benefit  to Seniors. There is a possibility that the Society will organize  a conference in the near future  which will entail participation  by such organizations as the  Old Age Pensioners Organization, The Council of Senior  Citizens Organization, The  Senior Citizens Association of  B.C. and possibly the Canadian Legion. Such a conference  would probably take place on  the Lower Mainland and  should provide the Society with  plenty of material for their purposes, should they go ahead  with plans for the conference.  EXECUTIVE MEETING  At the branch executive  meeting last Tuesday your  committee went through our  revised constitution. This was  discussed prior to "going to  Province of British Columbia  ROYAL COMMISSION ON  ELECTORAL BOUNDARIES  Order in Council No. 690  The Lieutenant Governor-ln-Council has amended the mandate of the Commissioner. Part of the  amendment provides that the Commissioner is to recommend the appropriate number of single  member electoral districts for the Legislative Assembly.  In order to assist the Commissioner in carrying out his mandate, public input is necessary. To  assist the public hearing process, the Commissioner intends to make a preliminary ruling as a  guide prior to commencing public hearings as to the appropriate number of single member  electoral districts for the Legislative Assembly.  The preliminary ruling will not be final. No decision on a recommendation as to the appropriate  number of single member electoral districts for the Legislative Assembly will be made until public  hearings have been held throughout the Province and the interim report is published by the  Commissioner.  In order to assist the Commissioner in making the preliminary ruling,-written submissions are  invited and are requested to be submitted to the office of the Commissioner by November 16,1987.  Forward written briefs to:  The Honourable Judge Thomas K. Fisher  Commissioner  580 ��� 625 Howe Street  VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA  V6C 2T6  Public hearings will be held in Victoria, British Columbia on November 23 and 24,1987, solely on  the issue of the appropriate number of single member electoral districts for the Legislative  Assembly. These hearings will commence at 10:00 a.m. at the Chateau Victoria Hotel, Parrot Room,  740 Burdett Avenue, Victoria, B.C. Any persons wishing to make an oral submission are asked to  give advance notice to the Commission office at 660-4169.  A schedule of public hearings to be held in locations throughout the Province will be advertised  after the preliminary ruling has been made. At these public hearings the Commissioner will hear  submissions on all aspects of the mandate including the appropriate number of single member  electoral districts and the boundaries for all electoral districts in the Province.  All enquiries should be directed to Mr. Terry Julian, Chief Administration Officer, at 580 ��� 625  Howe Street, Vancouver, B.C., V6C 2T6. Telephone: 660-4169.  press". Most changes and addendum^ were necessitated  because of government requirements during our successful efforts late last year in  securing our tax-free number.  Primarily the constitution wording is only the major change.  Members   will   be   advised  when copies are available.  BUILDING PLANS  Your building committee requests as many members as  possible to attend a viewing of  our completed drawings for the  new centre on Thursday, October 15 from 9:30 am to 12  noon. This is an exceptionally  important viewing since any accepted changes that any  member suggests will be very  expensive after plans go to  tender.  The building committee and  building project committee will  be on hand at this viewing to  answer your questions. This is*  a very important matter that  concerns all members. Please  attend.  HALLOWE'EN TEA  There will be a Hallowe'en  Tea in our hall open to the  public on October 29 from 2  pm to 4 pm. Tea, sandwiches  and goodies will be served. Admittance will be $2 per person.  SENIORS TRIP  May Widman is planning a  bus tour for out members to  the Sun Yat Sen Classical  Chinese Garden and Buddhist  Temple. The bus will leave  Sechelt to catch the 12:25 pm  ferry on October 21 and return  will be on the 7:25 pm boat out  of Horseshoe Bay.

Gibsons |��l||||g<^^  Coast News, October 12,1987  History shows fire  by George Cooper, 886-8520  ' Were you ready for "Fire  Drill" last Friday evening?  Was I the exception in having a  smoke alarm still in a box  awaiting installation?  Well all that was remedied  last Friday when the sirens  loudly reminded me to get at it  including throwing the chain  escape ladder from an upper  bedroom window, and also  checking the fire extinguisher.  And you?  Our Volunteer Fire Department has handled some  disastrous fires in the Gibsons  area over the years.  ��� Barry Stewart in his record  of the Gibsons and District  Volunteer Fire Department,  written for their twenty-fifth  anniversary and printed in the  Coast News in 1962, tells of  this fire.  "In February, 1955, Gibsons' worst fire to that time occurred when the Fairway service station was demolished.  Both the Sechelt and Port  Mellon brigades were called to  assist."  Frank Wyngaert's The West  Howe Sound Story adds to this  account. "Ed Fiedler's building  contained his service station and  garage and a beauty parlour  operated by his wife, Ivy and  living quarters above for his  family. In addition to two fire  trucks from Gibsons, units  from Port Mellon and Sechelt  were called in by Constable  Morrison of the RCMP. The  structure was re-built devoid of  the upstairs living quarters and  the beauty parlour."  The same year in November,  the fire brigade was embarrassed when a fire in their hard-  earned hall caused damages of  $1500 to the building and  $1000 to their equipment. A  faulty battery charger was the  cause of the fire. "Through the  concerted efforts of the men  the hall was soon repaired."  "At 12:30 am on July 29,  1958," Stewart's story tells us,  "the alarm called the firemen  to the worst fire in the history  of Gibsons (to that time). A  telephone operator in her office  on the highway above (at what  is now the junction with  Seaview Road) heard the  crackling of a fire and then saw  Services are important  When Hersey Sewell picks  up dinner at.

The telephone  operator was Mrs. Ethel  Bryant, who still lives nearby  on Highway 101.  The Bal block, named for  the owner a Mr. Balentine of  Hopkins Landing, housed the  original Marine Men's Wear, a  dentist's office and a cinema on  the upper floor and was  situated on the site of the present shops just below the Coast  News building.  "Firemen fought three hours  to confine a blaze that  threatened to wipe out the entire village. At one stage there  were seven fire trucks on the  scene. The major fire was not  put out until 7:30 am and mopping up operations took  another twelve hours. Damage  estimate was $200,000."  A fund started by the Coast  News and largely assisted by a  donation from the Women's  Association of the United  Church assisted firemen to pay  for their own clothing damaged  as they fought the fire.  An aerial photo of the  smoldering remains of the Bal  block showed in the  foreground a large house,  formerly the Hague residence.  Ironically, this residence,  valued at $15,000, burned to  the ground a year later.  Then on June 30,1973, there  occurred the greatest loss by  fire yet to strike the community.  The Elphinstone Secondary  school fire destroyed all but the  commerce-science and industrial arts wings, and left  students from Sechelt and Gibsons to a few years of classes in  portables.  Fire chief at the time, Dick  Ranniger was quoted then,  "The building was engulfed in  flames by the tme the alarm  was sounded."  He added, "A new school  should be of brick on one floor  and have a sprinkler system."  We trust the foregoing rids  us of our ho-hum attitude to  fire drills in our own residences  and also leads us to proclaim,  "Thanks be for our Volunteer  Firemen." .  mmmmmmm  HHQilYCi^��^ UPDATE  Oct 9  6 mo.  1yr.  2 yr.  3yr.  4yr.  5 yr.  1st  9.75  10.75  11.25  11.50  11.75  12.00  2nd  11.50  12.00  12.50  13.50  V.R.M.  10.00  Professional Real Estate Service  Stan and Diane Anderson  (OH.) 8B5-3211 (Res.) 885-2385 Vancouver Toll Free: 684-8016  Anderson Realty Ltd., Sechelt  ...we do it right!  8%  MUFFLER & WORKMANSHIP  GUARANTEED FOR AS LONG AS  ; YOU OWN YOUR CAR  YOUR COMMERCIAL  VEHICLE INSPECTION STATION  HOW IN GIBSONS  AT  SUNCOAST  MOTORS  :^<��  886-8213  1117 Hwy. 101, Gibsons (near Pratt Rd.)

HEALTH CENTRE  ELECTIONS  The Pender Harbour and  District Health Centre Society  re-elected president Jack Cook,  vice president Fred Reyburh,  and treasurer Dick Jones at the  annual general meeting on October 4.  Norm Cattermole of Egmont  was elected for a three-year  term as member of the board.  The Health Centre, built in  1976, is administered by the  Health Centre Society. Society  membership is open to all  Pender Harbour residents, and  entitles one to participate in  decision-making and elections,  and elegibility for a position on  the board.  The provincial government  provides funds for basic  operating costs, but all other  expenses are met by the community, through the society.  BARGAIN BARN  The Bargain Barn needs  volunteers, and is having difficulty finding staff for two  days a week (Thursday and  Saturday, 1 to 3 pm).  Volunteers are required to  commit only three hours a  month, and proceeds from  sales at the Barn buy equipment for the Pender Harbour  Health Centre and meet  operating expenses not covered  by government funding.  Work-at-home   volunteers"  are also needed to cut rags, and  materials can be picked up at  the Bargain Barn.  If you can help this worthy  cause, call Muriel Cameron at  883-2609.  Until   further   notice   the  Bargain  Barn  cannot  accept  any more clothing donations,  due to over-stocking.  HARBOUR WRITERS  Suncoast Writers' Forge  contest rules available at the  library and Centre Hardware  are being picked up, so we have  some local interest in the contest.  CULTURAL CENTRE  CEREMONY  The official ribbon-cutting  and grand opening ceremony  of the yet-unofficially-named  Old Ranger Station Cultural  Centre took place on Saturday,  October 3.  The efforts of the community and volunteers in the  development of this centre have  been documented before, so I  won't repeat them. I would like  instead to share with you may  "Favorite Comments of the  Day."  Gordon Wilson: "...the centre could also benefit Egmont  and the growing metropolis of  Middle Point."  Les Fowler, as the cut ribbon  fell to the ground: "That takes  care of the red tape and the  orange tape."  BINGO  Thursday night, 7 pm at the  Community Hall.

"Harvest Time" was the  theme for the mini show as  members displayed the last  flowers and; vegetables from  their gardens. Mary  Willoughby judged all entries  to be worthy of points.  In the Garden competition  the judges had decided on two  classes, small and large. Winners of the large garden were:  first - Annalise Richter, second  - Jim Brown, third - Jon and  Robyn Davies. For the small  gardens: first - Bill and Beulah  Lawson, second - Phyllis and  Ken Kimber, and third - Joan  Climo. While there was not a  category for public gardens  Shorncliffe was given an  "Honorable Mention".  Guest speaker was past president Barry Willoughby, winner  of many awards at Dahlia  shows this summer, showed off  some of the flowers that had  taken awards, beautiful  blossoms.  Barry's main topic was putting the garden to bed, how to  store glads, dahlia tubers,  begonias and trim fushcias.  If you haven't got your spring bulbs planted by now you  are way behind.

Andy's Restaurant  is the first local business to buy a seat in the new theatre.  ���Joel Johnstone photo  'Close facsimile'  Following a letter from lawyer David Hart, an application  for subidivision bearing the signature of a Mrs. Ryan was rejected at the SCRD meeting Thursday evening. According to  Hart, Mrs. Ryan had no knowledge of the application nor did  she give approval for Kevin Ryan to act as her agent. In the  words of Director Gordon Wilson, the signature on the application was a 'close facsimile' of that of Mrs. Ryan.  ,  Custom Drapery & Bedspread Fabrics  ���NOOtHER-ft^l^  luff se  by Joel Johnstone  Bluff residents may not have  to pay for the installation of  sewage lines to their properties.  That's not to say they are going to get sewage lines at all this  year if their latest petition to  Gibsons Council proves to be a  valid one.  "I believe this petition is 50  percent of the property value of  housing in that area," Administrator Lorraine Goddard  told council, and that is what it  takes to deny the Town the right  to install sewage lines to the  Bluff at a cost to the residents in  the area.  The 18 signature petition  representing 11 lots on the Bluff  states: "We as taxpayers, are  entitled to the same treatment as  all the other residents of the  Town of Gibsons who were  provided with sewer service at  no cost to the individual  homeowners; we therefore  strenously object to being subjected to a special levy to provide sewer systems in this area."  Alderman Bob Maxwell  agrees, saying, "They should be  entitled to sewage just as any  other taxpayer."  Goddard, however, says, "It  is too expensive to service the  Bluff. If we are going to extend  to the Bluff they are going to  have to pay for it.  "We just can't get enough  money."  Which appears to be fine by  the petitioners who signed the  statement, because it also says  they have already spent extensive amounts on septic tank  systems and if the town can't afford to pay for sewage service  lines to them then forget it.  "The only persons who  would benefit," the petition  states, "from the proposed self-  financing scheme are those  owners of building lots not approved for septic systems and  we refuse to assist in financing a  sewer system that would  dramatically increase the value  of those lots, while the value of  our properties would remain the  same."  Goddard points out that  residents of the Bluff "have not  been paying sewer tax for 15  years."  The issue was moved to the  Planning Committee.  By-law with bite  Gibsons noise bylaw bit back  on the side of Alderman Bob  Maxwell recently.  Awakened around one  o'clock in the morning by a  stereo playing in a parking lot  adjacent to his home, Maxwell  phoned the RCMP who pressed charges against a man under  the recently amended bylaw.  This successful prosecution  against disturbances at irregular hours in a residential  district is one of few and "I  just wanted to bring to people's  attention they can do  something about it."  Maxwell told council the  judge presiding over the case  commended the Town of Gibsons for its bylaw and told the  Coast News the "rather nice  young man caught in the cirf  cumstances" had a $150 fine  imposed on him.  Before it was amended the  previous bylaw stipulated fines  from $50 to $1000 could be imposed on successfully prosecuted   noisemakers.   Now  Old Car Club  by Joel Johnstone  Get your old car out of the  garage. Ed Laidlaw of Sechelt  wants you to go touring.  "It's just to form an old car  club", he says, but if enough  people show interest he's willing  to go as far as forming a chapter  of the Vintage Car Club of  Canada (VCCC) on the Sunshine Coast.  "I think the magic number is  six or eight people necessary to  get in with the VCCC" and with  that comes annual dues, a ,,.  magazine subscription, and an  opportunity to mingle with  others who share the same penchant for 'old cars'.  The cars don't necessarily  have to be antique or vintage  model vehicles. Laidlaw himself  has, not one, but two 1953 Pon-  tiacs, one in immaculate condition and another waiting for an  engine and a paint job. He says  anyone with a sixties, fifties, or  earlier car could join.  "If they would give me a call  and let me know a convenient  time for them to go to a meeting  I'd try to set something up.  "There's lots of uses for an  old car club. You can use them  in parades or weddings. Plus  you can go to all these tours the  old car clubs put on, like the  May tour put on by the VCCC.  "Powell River goes and quite  often put on their own and you  can go to these tours as a convoy."  This is the best way to travel,  he says, because if you have a  breakdown or "if you can't fix  something, someone in the con-.  voy is going to know."  It's also a great way to find  spare parts which might otherwise take a great deal of time to  track down.  The idea is to form and run  for about six months or a  season then apply to the VCCC  because if interest fails then the  club hasn't gone through any  trouble or expense acquiring the  VCCC charter unnecessarily.  Until then, Ed will just keep  polishing his car and waiting for  calls from interested parties. He  can be reached at 885-9405.  fines from $100 to $2000 may  be imposed.  The parking lot near Maxwell's house was "not intended  for partying in the middle of  the night," he says, and "indeed our bylaw does have  teeth."

GIBSONS  LEGION  Branch *109  CAT  Oct. 16th & 17th  Important General Meeting  Tues. Oct. 20th at 8 pm  Members & Guests Welcome  "      I W  always ours  by Penny Fuller  There is a solar eclipse  (where the moon comes between the earth and the sun at  the new moon) or a lunar  eclipse (where the Earth comes  between the Moon and the Sun  when the moon is full) about  twice a year. It may not always  make headlines but trust me, it  does happen.  Eclipses act like astrological  exclamation points, emphasizing the area of life represented  by the house where it occurs in  each individual's chart.  The lunar eclipse that occurred last Tuesday night was exact at 13 degrees Aries. So if  that point on a person's natal  chart falls in the part of their  chart that describes marital  relationships and/or partnerships, issues in that area of life  will be emphasized for the next  six months.  We're not talking 'good' or  'bad' here, those are relative  terms and we each decide for  ourselves which category a  given situation is in. But during  the next couple of weeks each  of us will find that the way we  handle certain aspects of our  lives are brought into question  or challenged.  The point of the exercise is  not to 'cope' and keep on the  same old patterns. The emphasis simply enables us to reevaluate how we're Handling  things, whether we like the  results, and whether we choose  to change it.  If you have a planet in your  chart, or near, the location of  the last eclipse, then the part of  your personality represented by  that planet will be particularly  active during this period of  time. For example, if you were  born on April 4 of any year, or  a day close to that, your use of  ego energies will be an issue.  That's an Aries sun, and you  may  want  to  look  at  how  you're handling your agressive  instincts.   If you  have  been  riding rough-shod over other;;  people,   they   may   start   to, 7  challenge you at this time., IjJ77;'  you've been  charging , aheg,|^  without listening to cautionaryM  warnings, now is likely to? be/5  the time that you see repercussions from this. You may decide  that you would like to choose a  more constructive way to use  your energy.  In May, September and October 1930, and February and  March 1931 Uranus was at or  near 13 degrees Aries. Anyone  born during that time will be  finding that their rebellious  spirit is being stirred. Didn't  think you had one? Well, now  you know. Anything in your  life that is stifling you or thwar  ting your individual expression  will start to really irriate you  now. As always, you have the  choice to do something about it  or not, but you will no longer  be able to ignore it.  Saturn is in that location in a  number of people's charts.  Those born in May or October  1938; January or February  1939; July or August 1967; or  March 1968 are all part of that  group. The restrictions in your  life will likely become quite  conspicuous right now.  Especially those restrictions  which can be traced to parents.  This can be pretty subtle, but  really critical in terms of being  happy in your life. If one of  your parents told you that you  had no money-sense, you may  start running into money problems during the next few months. If a parent managed to  convince you as a child that  you were unlovable, then your  relationships may become a  central issue right now.  It's important that you  refuse to take a fatalistic attitude toward any aspect of  your life. If you find yourself  saying 'That's just the way I  am' or 'That's the way things  always go for me', then realize  that you are allowing those attitudes to form your life experience. It's no different than  people who honestly believe  that planets control their lives.  They will be able to cite  numerous circumstances that  confirm that belief.  The truth is that nothing  controls our lives but our own  ideas about life. We are provided with many opportunities to  examine ourselves and our lives  and find alternative, happier  ways of living, but the choice is  always ours.  Sat.

Coast News, October 12,1987  13.  Payerle's novel a  by Peter Trower  Montague Royal generally  does the book reviews for this  paper but I insisted on doing  this one myself. It is a natural  postscript to last summer's  Writer's Festival.  A  couple  of  weeks back,  Yvonne, Terri and myself attended the launch of George  Payerle's   novel   Unknown  Soldier (MacMillan), at Duthie  Books in Vancouver. It was extremely well attended for such  an event and most of the local  literary   lights   were   there.'  j  Payerle's;; long  delayed  book  ��  had already become a sort of  i  underground legend.  Anyhow, the upshot was that  ;   I finally got my hands on a  >  review copy of the novel. As I  :  suspected from the excerpts I  : had heard George read, Un-  :   known Soldier was well worth  ; the wait. Iri Sam Collister, he  has created one of the most  ��� thoroughly   believable   and  : human protagonists who ever  stormed through the pages of a  Canadian novel.  The 'now' of the book is  1978. Most of the story takes  place in this period although  there are a number of powerful  and judiciously placed flashbacks. A brief prologue shows  Sam Collister as a young  sargeant in 1944 Belgium, knee-  deep in the bloody hell of war.  Then the narrative leaps ahead  to contemporary Victoria. Sam  is now a bitter man of fifty-nine  with a broken marriage and a  recent heart attack behind him,  living in cheap digs, working at  odd jobs, drinking his life away.  The long-ago horrors of Belgium and the death of his best  friend, Hugh, still haunt his  nightmares. In a bar, Sam meets  a woman in her mid-forties  named Lily. She takes him  home with her and for the first  time in years, he feels something  like love.  Shortly after this, Sam learns  that an old Army buddy, Al,  who survived the war unscathed, has been seriously injured in  a Vancouver car accident. He  embarks on an odyssey to the  mainland to see Al and hopefully, get to know his only son,  Hugh, with whom he had had a  strange, uneasy reunion a few  months before. He even plans  to look up his former wife, Dot,  long since remarried, whom he  had deserted twenty years  earlier. Essentially, Sam is searching for himself and some sort  of meaning in his empty life.  But he is hamstrung with confusion and bitterness. On the way  to Tsawwassen, he has a run-in  with a mouthy young biker, hits  a steward by mistake and  spends his first night on the  mainland in jail.  Cowsill rocks  the oldies  It must be admitted that, to  this point, Sam Collister seems  like a messed-up loser of the  most hopeless sort but as the  story progresses, we get to know  him much better. It is a tribute  to George Payerle's exceptional  writing that this transformation  gradually occurs. We see Sam's  very real compassion for his injured friend, Al, the feelings of  pride and  fatherhood  in  his  awkward relationship with his  son,  his  friendship  with  the  son's perceptive girlfriend, Nancy, and his attempt to understand his alienated ex-wife and  her crass, patronizing husband.  We see it also in the brutal  flashbacks to the battlefield, the  unrelenting traumas, indelibly  etched. Payerle brings each incident to life with real-as-sweat  dialogue and brilliant description. His bar scenes are so real,  you can taste the beer. By the  time Sam returns to Victoria,  hoping to see Lily again, we are  rooting for him all the way.  At this point, Payerle's book  takes an unexpected turn. In  Victoria Sam finds that Lily has  gone east for a month. He then  learns that his sister, Charlotte,  long living in England, is dying  of leukemia. Sam borrows  money and flies to London.  The three chapters dealing  with England are among the  most moving and revealing in  the book. Payerle excells  himself in his depiction of London, the English countryside  and the people who make these  places their home. The sudden  shift from Canada to these  historic landscapes, is both exhilarating and effective.  For Sam Collister it proves a  painful but highly cathartic experience. He is familiar with  England from wartime days  when he met his wife, and from  a later trip following his heart  attack. As Sam sits at dying  Charlotte's bedside, he is profoundly moved, and so is the  reader. We learn of their  parents, their childhood around  Vancouver, the closeness they  once shared and now rediscover. We peer deeper into  Sam's soul.  Following Charlotte's tragic  but inevitable death, Sam  * spends some time in Devon with  another old army friend, John  Jameson and his much younger  wife, Elizabeth. Eventually he  flies back to Canada but the  seeds of change have been  planted in him.  The final chapters take place  in Victoria. Here all the loose  ends of Sam's life come together at last. I won't spoil the  ending beyond saying that it is a  reasonably happy and hopeful  one. By this point, you want it  to be.  Unknown Soldier took five  years to write and it shows in  the finely-drawn characters, the  imagistic, carefully-crafted prose. The novel is a singing tour-  de-force all the way. George  Payerle's moment in the sun has  definitely arrived.

They were boogying.  They were dancing their buns  off.  The reason was Billy Cowsill  who performed Tuesday and  Wednesday at Gramma's Pub.  As Billy says, "We do the  BIG dead ones."  They then proceeded to perform songs by Elvis,  Buddy  Holly, Hank Snow, Merle Haggard   (who   Billy   explained  *wasn't dead but his hair was  ^rapidly dying), Patsy Cline, Roy  lOrbison,   and  -others  -too,  numerous to mention*.  Each rendition was true to  the origional theme and sound  and took those of us old enough  Foster  Parent  Week  Foster parents across Canada  are being honoured during the  first National Foster Parent  Week, October 18 to 24. The  theme for this week is 'Families  Caring and Sharing.'  Foster parents are the backbone of oiirvchild-care system,;  and National Foster Parent  Week provides the opportunity  for us all to express gratitude to  these unsung heroes.  Special events and ceremonies  are being planned throughout  Canada in an effort to honour  the nation's foster parents.  Who are foster parents? They  are everyday ordinary people,  your neighbours perhaps, who  temporarily parent children in  need. The rewards in fostering  are few, but what does encourage and reward foster  parents are the sounds of a child  who has learned to laugh again,  trust again, be a child again!  The B.C. Federation i of  Foster Parents salutes all fbster  parents on the Sunshine Coast.  Congratulations, we are proud  of the example set by our foster  parents. /  To find out more about the  foster parent program, contact  Ministry of Social Services &  Housing, 885-7107 or talk to a  foster parent at 886-8082.  Are you up to the challenge?  to remember them back to Bobby Sox, Duck-tailed haircuts  and memories of hot cars and  hotter infatuations.  Billy, who played acoustic  guitar, and Elmar (who refused  to give a last name) on stand up  bass, thrilled this writer not only  with the quality of their vocals  but by the absence of high-  powered electronics.  With just the power and purity of their instruments and  voices they had more people up  and dancing in Gramma's than  I have ever seen, and that's a  long, long time.  Kudos to  both<.pefformers.  and to Gramma's for bringing  such quality entertainment to  Gibsons.

We started our evenings tastebud adventure with a visit to  the salad bar. A delicious labyrinth of flavours and aromas;  coleslaw, Greek, potato, macaroni, green, shrimp and a  multitude of other salads to choose from. Not knowing which  one to select we tried them all (in minute portions of course).  They all were exquisite and tasted like more, but we had to  restrain ourselves and save room for the entrees.  And room indeed we needed! The plates were enormous  and piled high, just the way my grandma would stack a plate.  My dining companion ordered the prime rib which was  thick, juicy, oh so tender and cooked to perfection,  smothered with large, zesty stir-fried whole fresh mushrooms.  An elegantly dressed baked potato and a healthy supply of  broccoli and cauliflower completed the palatable landscape.  My plate was identical in every way except a rack of dynamo  BBQ ribs adorned the spot of the prime rib.  To our mutual surprise a basket of crispy French garlic  toast miraculously arrived on our table, its sole purpose was  to serve our eager appetites.  No dining escapade is complete  without dessert and I'd have to  honestly say that the Homestead's  Black Forest cake was one of the  very best that I've ever tasted.  The pumpkin pie was just as  delectable, smothered with-���* ?  whipping cream, and the  servings once again were  very healthy.  A return visit to the  Homestead is already  on my calendar.  Maybe I'll see you there.  Bonniebrook Lodge- Enjoy relaxed  and intimate dining in this historic seaside  lodge.

Perhaps  this solidity is due to turn-of-  the-century buildings such as  the three-story red brick Town  Hall or the stately CN station.  The rail lines run through the  centre of town on a branch  from Winnipeg to Churchill,  and multiple grain elevators  dominate the skyline. The  Ukrainian Orthodox church's  golden domes and the Catholic  church's roof crowded with  cupolas and crosses add  character to the townscape.  Each August Dauphin proudly hosts the National Ukrainian  Festival, drawing many visitors.  The Fort Dauphin Museum surrounded by a hedge of marigolds and a frontier fort wall  contains a fascinating collection  of original buildings, an old  Anglican church, blacksmith  shop, store and home, all filled  with artifacts to give you a sense  of pioneer life. A trapper's  cabin, all of eight by ten feet,  contains pelts, snowshoes, and  a chair made of moose antlers.  It is warm here now. Sweet  corn is sold from the back of a  pickup, a native mom pushes  her baby's stroller, a senior  pedals her oversized tricycle  down Main Street. But in the  countryside the last of the grain  is being harvested and in town  the vegetables have been picked  and pickled.  Winters are cold. Some  homes have triple glazed windows. A radio station advertises  a mid-winter getaway vacation,  six weeks in Victoria. The  Yamaha dealership is called  Sleds & Wheels.  The houses are compact.  Typical is a two-storey white  wood frame house with dark  trim on a tree-lined block. In  front is a well kept lawn, and in  back, a big garden.  Dauphin boasts a large community centre with an arena and  curling rink. The Horseshoes  Clubhouse is emblazoned, 'National Champions 1970'. But  the real sports excitement was  the recent ATV mud bog races  organized by the Snowmobile  Drag Racing Club.  In the Dauphin Herald: the  plight of commercial fishermen  laid off since 1986 when Lake  Winnipegosis was closed for a  Davis Bay  News &��� Views  Geese go by  by Jean Robinson, 885-2954  While working in my garden  on Wednesday, October 7, I  was treated to the sight and  sound of hundreds of geese going south.  These skeins of geese were  flying high and in very spread  out flocks. Never-the-less, they  were flying quickly in loose V  formation.  The Reifel Wildlife Refuge  was having thousands of overnight guests that night.  HALLOWEEN PARTY  The Parents Advisory Group  to Davis Bay Elementary School  are having their usual Halloween Party again this year.  Time and dates to be announced  HAIDA BRAVE  The self propelled log barge,  Haida Brave, visited close in to  Davis Bay last week. Because  only part was visible to me from  behind some trees, it looked like  a freighter at first. Quite a sight  in so close.
