Array Municipalities should act  Nikki Weber, Sechelt's Good Citizen of the Year, receives her plaque from Sechelt and District Chamber  of Commerce President Kay Bailey at last Saturday's Good Citizen's Banquet. For report on the  festivities see Page 15. ���Ken Collins photo  At Gibsons Counci  Cottage industry debated  by Joel Johnstone  An incomplete, nonfunctioning bylaw still had  enough intent within-one of its  sections to deny a Gibsons  woman a license to operate a  business in her home.  Because a clause in proposed  Zoning Amendment Bylaw  555-5 would not allow 'home  occupation' businesses to offer  personal services or the retail of  goods not manufactured on the  premises, Gibsons Council  refused to grant the license and  have imposed a moratorium  upon all applications contravening the byiaw's section affecting  cottage industries.  Existing Bylaw 350 did not  require business license applications to be brought before council, but Building Inspector  Ralph Jones presented it for  consideration due to the fact the  new by-law would not allow it.  Town Administrator Lorraine Goddard said it was  within council's powers to deny  the license and impose the  moratorium put forward as a  motion by Alderman Bob Maxwell.  Maxwell said "I concur with  the intent of Bylaw 555-5," but  with the present application in  mind both he and Alderman  Norm Peterson voiced concerns  about denying the license  because of Bylaw 350.  Home occupation businesses  currently operating would, even  with the inception of 555-5, be  allowed to continue.  Mayor Diane Strom said,  "The planner is trying to bring  about a compromise where cottage industry is not in conflict  with commercial business and  both can still thrive."  Peterson told council the section "may be a little too heavy  on home occupation. There's  quite   a   few   things   that   it  hampers and it might be a little  too discriminating." y  The main thrust of Bylaw  555-5 pWi)^vherf.>tQ^nliibit the. ,  height of structures within the '  town and set vertical height  limitations on developments  such as verandas extending out  from buildings built on slopes.  Planner Rob Buchan stated  in highlights of the bylaw he  submitted: "The potential impact of this relatively short  bylaw should not be  underestimated, and it is  therefore worth reviewing..."  Later, Buchan said there  should be additions to the home  occupation section stating  which personal services are affected because, as it stands now,  it covers everything from  masseurs to beauticians, doctors  to dentists."you name it it covers a wide field.

Though the aid was only  recently announced and the  commision to regulate the  monies has yet to swing into full  operation, this money is what  the hospital hopes will save  them from total depletion of  their working capital - money  used to pay wages and provide  day-to-day services.  ;7 "We haven't heard anything  directly about that ($20 million)  at all," says Ted Wright, administrator for St. Mary's.  "But the day before we did hear  from the Ministry of Health."  p' Minister of Health, Peter  fiueck, St. Mary's Board of  Trustees Chairman Tom Meredith and Wright are expected to  meet November 3 to discuss the  hospital's situation.  : Wright says there is a  possibility MLA Harold Long  may be in attendance.  The meeting, which Wright  says Meredith has been attempting to set up since the Board  announced the closure of eight  beds arid the layoffs of two full-  time and three part-time staff,  will help determine where St.  Mary's financial position will  stand over the winter.  "We're hoping," Wright  says, "that by going to the  Minister of Health we'll be able  to tap into that $20 million."  How much money is made  available to hospitals, like St.  Mary's, will be determined by  the commision and the $20  million is only in place to pro  vide temporary assistance until  the new provincial budget is  released in March.  Until then, and if no substantial money is obtained to sustain  St. Mary's working capital, current bed closures will exist for  the next five months and the  layoffs of four nurses and one  laboratory worker will be  elongated throughout the next  30 to 90 days.  St. Mary's used to have a  large working capital, but this  year, last year, and the previous  year, deficits have demanded  use of those funds to keep the  hospital from borrowing money  to cover its costs.  Transport complaint  Gibsons Alderman Norm Peterson served 'Notice of Motion' at last week's meeting of the Sunshine Coast Regional  District Board. He will be calling for the disbanding and  restructuring of the Transportation Committee which is currently chaired by Area F Director John Shaske.  Peterson cited the lack of information and effective action  around the cancellation of the 10:30 ferry sailing as his major  reasons.  Area  7 A paper received for information at last Thursday's  meeting of the Sunshine Coast  Regional District (SCRD) shows  Area C as having a voting  population of 692 persons,  however Financial Advisor to  the Sechelt Indian Band, Gordon Anderson, told the Coast  News last week that 444 of  those people are living on  Sechelt Indian Band lands.  7* When questioned further,  Anderson said that to his  Knowledge, there has never been  ^polling booth for Area C on  jland lands, nor has the Sechelt  Indian Band Council been approached for permission to install one for this year's election.  Anderson suggested that  should such a request be received, it would be denied. He  pointed out that legislation has  been passed giving the Band  Council jurisdiction over all the  people living on Band land, and  council is currently in the process of establishing the structure  For local elections  in limbo  of an advisory council who  would represent non-Indians  living in the Sechelt Indian  District.  "We have an Indian government," he said, "and that's  who will represent the people on  Band land."  SCRD Director Gordon  Wilson told a reporter, "Our  failure to deal with this issue  leads us to the dangerous point  of playing petty politics at the  expense of our relationship with  the Sechelt Indian people. The  SCRD and the Band are not  communicating well and we  need to open doors and improve  communications."  Wilson, who has declared his  intention of running again for  the director's seat in Area A,  said he discussed the realignment of boundaries last spring  but others on the regional board  wouldn't support him.  "I favour a realignment of  boundaries for Area B and F in  order to encompass those areas  of Area C outside of Band  lands. I believe the Sechelt Indian Band Council is the proper  body to represent those people  living on Band lands," he stated .  firmly.  Several phone calls to both  the Ministry of Municipal Affairs and the Ministry of Intergovernmental Affairs indicated that few people within  those departments were sure of  where jurisdictional authority  for the 444 people living in the:  Sechelt Indian District lies.  Gary. Paget,    from   the;  Municipal Affairs explained to  the   Coast   News   that   those  boundaries   probably   should  have been changed last year  when   Sechelt   expanded   its;  boundaries to include most of;  Area C. However, now the in-;  itiative will have to come from  one   of   the   municipalities:  represented   on   the   SCRD:  board, who may have objections to the voting weight of  Area C.  Nominations trickle in  . Nomination forms are trickling in for ��he Sechelt, Gibsons,  and School Board District 46  elections.  In Sechelt Audrey  Broughton, Nancy MacLarty,  Mike Shanks and Bob Wilson  have shown their intent to run  for three open aldermanic seats.  Alderman Ken Short said he  would not run again and Alderman Ann Langdon has not filed  to dale.  L-   Administrator   Malcolm  ~\ Shanks said there were still two  Mother   nomination- forms' put  which have not been filed.  In Gibsons, contesting the incumbent Mayor Diane Strom's  bid for re-election will be current Alderman Bob Maxwell.  For alderman two papers only have been brought in so far  (at press time).

Shawn Cardinall will be running for the School Board seat  in Gibsons.  Salmon need rain  Fisheries Officer Randy Tancock reports that fish are milling around at the mouths of creeks and rivers on the Sunshine  Coast but are unable to move up to the spawning grounds  due to the unusually low water levels.  Most fish can wait a week or ten days longer and chum can  spawn in the salt water as long as there is some fresh water  filtering through the gravel. But if there is no significant rainfall soon the salmon spawn for this year will be seriously affected.  Tancock also reports that sport fishing is spotty, with a few  chinook beginning to show. Butter clams are still closed on  the whole coast and butter clams, mussels and scallops are  closed in Sechelt Inlet.  Albert and Judith Cook don't have any complaints about the lack of rain this year.

"We will  blaze new trails," vowed the Premier.  Nonetheless, the premier's supporters on one radio  discussion of privatization leant heavily on what had been  done by way of privatization in Britain and France to  justify what the Premier had in mind.  This vision of himself and his government as fearless  trail blazers daring to go where other, less heroic governments only contemplate and tremble is obviously an image  which is dear to the Premier's heart.  It is equally obvious that voices are being raised which  were stilled heretofore to give the premier the benefit of  the doubt. They are expressing concern that what we are  getting by way of government in B.C. these days is exactly  the seat-of-the-pants improvisation without consultation  that critics of Premier Vander Zalm feared when he sought  to lead the province. Some of these voices come from  within his own party.  It is not the premier's proposals on privatization alone  which cause concern. The proposed decentralization, so-  called, of government is causing downright alarm in some  quarters. It is difficult to quarrel with Mike Harcourt's  assessment that a political figure is being given power over  local elected officials with the right to overturn their decisions where the friends of the governing party can be  helped.  It may prove to be that the genius of the premier is such  that great good will come to the province which the most  of us are too lacking in vision and courage to understand  at the present time. It may also prove to be that a relatively ���  unsophisticated man with delusions of grandeur is taking a  dangerously ideological approach to the delicate and complex business of making the economic system work.  Unfortunately it must be said that at this point the latter  seems to be the more likely. The people of B.C. may soon  rue the day they chose image over substance in the last provincial election.  Taking stock  Throughout the media coverage of the dramatic events  on the stock market last week there ran a common theme.  All commentators were taken completely by surprise by  the events.  They debated whether this would mean a recession was  or was not around the corner. When, one wondered, was  there ever a recession that did not equally take our  economic gurus equally by surprise.  And in these days of the most strident right expressions  of faith and in the forces of the free market, why is it that  governments and their spokesmen and their financial institutions must step forward with soothing words and  financial measures designed to stop the bleeding when  events such as those that took place last week occur.  It is not fashionable at the present time to believe that  the best economic path is that which has a judicious mixture of private and public enterprise, at least not in ruling  circles in Canada, Britain and the United States. Ine  evidence of the last week suggests, however, that the  economic future of Western economies will have more  pragmatism and less extreme right win ideology than is  fashionable at the moment.  5 YEARS AGO  About 200 coast residents and 70 vehicles disrupted  ferry service for the 11:50 am sailing at Langdale in a protest meant to call attention to the curtailment of ferry service to the Sunshine Coast.  When the ferry arrived, vehicles and passengers were  allowed to disembark, but no traffic boarded for the  return sailing. Travellers had to wait until the next sailing  at 3 pm.  Sgt. Wayne F. Bohn of the Gibsons RCMPdetachment  was recently the recipient of a medal honouring 20 years  of a clean personal record with the RCMP.  10 YEARS AGO  Local boat builder wants to construct the Black Eyes II  right here in Gibsons to challenge Bluenose II.  20 YEARS AGO  The Coppings, representing Volkswagen on the Sunshine Coast, report many new features in the 1968  models!  30 YEARS AGO  A desire to organize some form of Board of Trade encompassing Powell River, Pender Harbour, Sechelt and  Gibsons was expressed at a smorgasbord in Madeira  Park attended by 250 people.  A giant fireworks display on the Sechelt Wharf will be  organized by the Kinsmen, rain or shine.  40 YEARS AGO  A PTA meeting in Sechelt stresses the need for a hall  in the community.

The letters you will find  on Page 3 of this week's Coast  News.  I would like to preamble a  few comments on the SCRD by  noting the relevance of all local  governments may be debatable  if and when the provincial  government puts its so-called  decentralization into place.  I have a feeling that the next .  few 'years could be verf *���''  frustrating for those locally  elected if the proposed changes  are implemented. The debates  and disputes between  municipalities and the SCRD on  the Sunshine Coast may soon be  of no significance whatsoever as  the real decision-making shifts  elsewhere.  To put my remarks in  something approaching context,  may I remind that I have been  an observer of the SCRD for 11  years. I can remember half a  dozen different chairmen;  Harry Almond of Roberts  Creek, Area D; Ed Nicholson  of Area B; Dave Hunter of  Area F; Brian Stelck, Sechelt  Alderman; and Lorraine Goddard, Mayor of Gibsons.  There were disputes and  debates and sometimes heated  disagreements under all  previous chairmen. What there  was not was a permanent voting  split which saw virtually all  rural directors in constant majority   in   opposition   to   the  municipalities. Only under the  present chairman has that  unhealthy situation taken place.  I say again, those were  regional boards in more active  times than these which got  through their workload without  afternoon meetings and without  the alleged necessity of dining  regularly on the taxpayer.  One thing that is different  about the SCRD from the  municipalities and which must  be understood is the method  whereby the Chairman is  chosen. In the municipalities the  Mayors are chosen by a vote ex-  _ ercised by the public at large..  ; On the SCRD the Chairman is a  director chosen by other directors.  The result is that the present  chairman has been elected again  and again with the tacit  understanding that his supporters in the annual vote of  directors will be given the committees that they wish to chair;  McGillivray gets Planning and  Shaske gets Transportation, for  example.  This rigidness of structure  was not a factor in previous  regional boards. Nor does it, in  my view, work for the benefit of  the Coast.  I can remember, for example,  a few years back when the top  brass of the B.C. Ferry Corporation came to hear our concerns. As Chairman of the  Transportation Committee,  Director Shaske took umbrage  at the fact that the visitors  would not be available for an  evening meeting and scheduled  the afternoon meeting into his  tiny storage room among the  packing cases. It was an act of  unspeakable discourtesy.  Shaske is still the Chairman  of the Transportation Committee because that is his reward  for loyal support of Gurney for  chairman. Whether such a  spokesman will ever get a decent  hearing from the B.C. Ferry  Corporation is for the reader to  judge.  It may be that this group of  directors, clinging to power and  privilege like a latter-day  Chateau Clique in early Quebec  or the Family Compact in early  Ontario, will continue to be successful in so clinging for some  years to come. I doubt that the  best interests of the Sunshine  Coast will be served and by best  interests I include a preservation  of the charm which brought us  all here and which need not be  incompatible with the growth  In Time of  which is surely inevitable.  To the letters: Shaske's argument seems to boil down to  Teed me, you need me', and:  those who agree may indeed be:  in the majority but I am  assuredly not among them.  Gurney, of course has a legal'  loophole to squirm out of, he is'  a   clever   man.    But   the.'  straightforward   way   would:  have been to assign the weighted,  votes which were Sechelt's due;  sixteen   months   ago   and  recognize that Area C was no;  more. The one vote dredged up;  for the area through the Gurney  loophole will for a couple more  years give the rural directors the  voting  edge to  maintain  the*,  political status quo. :*;  Whether   the   status   quo,  politically, is in our best long-  term interests is the point at  issue.  4The Breaking of Nations9  i  Cf NL Y a man harrowing clods  in a slow silent walk  With an old horse that stumbles and  Half asleep as they stalk.

Thomas Hardy  nods  Coast's original masked revellers  A defence of raccoons  by James H. Tyner  Lately the raccoons have  been getting a bad press.  Various people have accused  them of doing many things - all  bad. The raccoons have been  accused of molesting ducks and  fowl, tearing holes in roofs,  undermining foundations, stealing fruit, disrupting gardens,  upsetting garbage cans and  generally raising hell.  The accusers seem to know  little of raccoons, perhaps even  as little as the dictionaries. The  Concise Oxford Dictionary  describes the raccoon as a  greyish-brown furry bushy-  tailed sharp snouted North  American nocturnal carnivore  while the Chambers Twentieth  Century Dictionary states that  the raccoon is a genus of the  bear family of North America  -valuable for its fur.  These descriptions leave us  unprepared for the small grey  animal of perhaps 20 to 25  pounds with a black mask  about the eyes on a white-grey  face - the black extending down  to a sharp little black nose, the  white-grey forehead marked by  three vertical black stripes giv  ing it a worried look, the little  round ears rimmed with white  and the bushy grey-yellow tail  ringed with bands of black.  Usually when seen the raccoon  is standing on its hind legs begging for food holding up its most  remarkable human-like hands.  A more attractive animal would  be hard to find.  The raccoon is a variety of  bear and is not strictly a carnivore. Like other bears and  like man it has a widely varied  diet consisting primarily of protein and carbohydrates. It finds  much of its food by digging in  the earth for grubs, snails and  worms, finding slugs, turning  over rocks for insects, tearing at  rotting logs and wood for wood  worms, looking for fruit and  certain vegetation and roaming  along the shores of lakes and  streams for whatever it may  find.  With the encroachment of  man upon its territory the  resourceful raccoon has adapted itself to mans' environment.  The complaints against it are  caused by this adaption. It must  live and if it can manage this by  stealing apples don't be surprised. The man who complained  about the raccoon digging a  hole in his roof should be  grateful as the raccoon would  probably not do this unless the  shingles were rotten for its  natural instinct is to tear at rotten wood in its quest for food.  Although we. have had raccoons about our place for  some time our first closer  understanding developed with  the appearance one day of a  female with seven young ones.  She was in poor and emaciated  condition and was obviously  having difficulty providing for  her family. They eagerly  devoured the dog food we gave  them and looked for more.  They stayed with us and were  fed regularly. The mother  would sometimes hold my hand  in both hers as though in appreciation.  The family spent their days  on the lawn or in the garden and  their nights in the big cedar tree  at the front of our house. It was  most interesting to watch the  mother teaching her young to  turn over rocks, dig in the earth  and tear apart rotting wood to  search for food. When I was  digging the garden they would  follow closely breaking up the  turned sod. When we were away  they would climb to the roof of  the house and sit in a row on its  peak and watch for our return.  One day the family left us to  explore the neighbourhood, the  next morning there were six very  frightened young raccoons huddled on the lawn - one of them  wounded in the hind leg - the  mother and one of the young  missing.  For a few days they were very  nervous. However they soon  recovered and spent much of  the summer frolicking and playing on the lawn during the day  and spending their nights in the  cedar.  We learned that the raccoon  is a nocturnal animal only by  necessity. We also learned that  they growl, bark and use a twittering sound to communicate.  They play many games some of  them requiring concentration,  co-ordination, good communication and sound judgement.  Such a game was where two  raccoons face each other at a  distance of about 40 feet then;  with heads down, race towards  each other at full speed (so fast  that they are.little more than a  Please turn to page 20; mmmt msmmmammmmmtmnm  mmnmnmrmimim*** wimmi  Coast News, October 26,1987  F  JEditor:  �� There has been much written  ��bout the Sunshine Coast  Regional District (SCRD) directors having dinner at the taxpayers' expense.  jj For my part, being responsible for two businesses, I am not  |ble to attend all day time  sheetings. As well, not being in  the office on a regular basis,  one loses touch with day to day  happenings. By meeting over  dinner I find I can get caught up  on a lot of background infor-  rnation before board or committee meetings, allowing for  more intelligent debate rather  than basic questions. Since my  normal day of work does not  ��jnd until six pm or later, there is  fio other time to get this  Background information.  5 The next point is that no one  |hould work more than twelve  pours a day without a hot meal,  jfet, if I was to go home, which  $5 my personal preference, I  toould have to drive over 25  miles plus eat in just over one  lour, not a very good way to  clear your mind and prepare for  the evening.  Director Wilson states as a  director he actually makes 50  cents per hour. When I add up  all the extras I spend money on,  lose days of pay plus pay someone else to take my place, 50  cents an hour is good. The only  reason for doing this service is  to help develop the community I  live in.  If our board is to continue to  be one of the only truly diversified boards (young and rising  to retired) giving true representation, we must continue to  reimburse all elected people for  all expenses.  The following quote is from  an editorial in the Coast News,  November 3, 1986, entitled  'Apathy Rampant'. "It may be  that everyone is well-satisfied; it  may be that holding public office can be so unpleasant that  no one wants to do it. Whatever  the case it is a troubling  phenomenon."  New legislation coming down  from the provincial government  now recognizes that directors  have not been reimbursed for all  expenses incurred in conducting  municipal business and that this  is one of the many factors that  discouraged people from running as candidates. Hopefully  this is a step forward to improving participation in our  democratic society.  John Shaske  Director, Area 'F'  Gurney amused  Editor:  . I would note with amusement  your petty attempt to discredit  your competitor with respect to  reporting on Regional District  voting strengths. I say 'would' if  it were not for your blatant and  inaccurate attempt to mislead  ypur readers with your efforts,  dpce more, to vilify the  Regional District.  j As a matter of fact, it is the  Minister of Municipal Affairs  ajid only the Minister who  determines the populations of  electoral areas and it is the  N|inister who has determined  that the pppulatipn living on  Sechelt Indian Band lands is applied to Electoral Area C. The  Regional District has no, I  repeat no, say in the matter  whatsoever.  Your attempt to label the  Regional District as devious in  this regard is one more example  of the biased and misleading  editorial and reporting policy of  your paper.  One must ask if there is so little to criticize the Regional  District for that you must continue to falsify and misrepresent  in order to promote your  discriminative point of view?

In  '���: a slide presentation, Donaldson  '���: carefully explained each pro-  ���z cess.  :7     When asked to state exactly  ;������ what   the   experiments   were  designed  to prove,  he stated  .; three   specific   goals:   to   test  '.; whether the fish are adversely  '���:'��� impacted by the treatments, or  '���;:'��� if they develop normally; to test  7 the   length   of   time   after  ��� treatments before no residue ex-  : ists in the fish; and to prove that  there is no adverse impact on  the environment.  Diana Davidson, representing  the   Tuwanek   Ratepayers  Association, stated her concern  for the people who are working  :: with these, 'potentially socially  .'��� awkward   drugs.'   She   asked  >. what tests were done before and  -: after using the drugs to monitor  7' their effects on workers.  Doctor Donaldson said that  while none were being done, no  one in his lab had suffered any  effects. However, he said, "If  the farms want their people  medically checked out before  and after each use, they can do  that."  His department provides  training workshops in the safe  handling of the hormones, and  he said that they recommend  that females don't administer  the androgen spray used on  feed. "Males should do that  just as a precaution," he explained.  But Davidson criticized the  lack of testing, pointing out that  many of the workers on fish  farms are young people who  may not be properly educated in  the potential hazards of these  drugs, which can be absorbed  through the skin.  She checked him sharply,  when Donaldson began to  discuss   different   scientific  philosophies, saying, "I would  be much happier if you functioned as a scientist and left the  ethical questions, which you are  not trained to handle, alone. I  want scientific facts."  Chairman Gordon Wilson  questioned Donaldson about  marketing the hormone treated  fish. There is a section in the  agreement signed by companies  doing the experiments which  states: "The company shall not  seal, assign or encumber any  salmonids at any stage of their  development without the prior  written approval of Her Majesty."  But the salmon will be  marketed, Donaldson told the  task force, probably this winter,  approximately one and a half  years after their last hormone  treatment. There will be no  special indication, he said, on  the labels to indicate that the  fish have been treated with hormone.  No bickering on  regional membership  Gordon Wilson expressed  concern Thursday night at the  meeting of the Sunshine Coast  Regional Board, that "I'm  afraid we're going to take the  kind of in-fighting and bicker-  Hidden Comfort Panties  buy 2 pair, get 1 pair freei  Wonderbra & Warners  Selected Styles On Sale  Daisyfresh - 25 ^ off  Teddy's - Camis   . 3Q% off  on purchase of newest Wonderbra styles  g>ilk& 8c %ntt  Sunnycrest Mall, Gibsons  886-3100  ing that we have around in the  Economic Development Commission into the arena of the  provincial government to the  great disservice of the people we  were elected to represent."  His comments were made  during the discussion of a letter  the SCRD was planning to send  to the premier asking that the  Sunshine Coast be included in  Region One with Powell River  rather than Region Two with  the Lower Mainland. That position is opposite to the stand  taken by the municipalities of  Gibsons and Sechelt who are  content to stay in Region Two.  "What I get from the politicians is that they don't want to  deal with us at all," he said.  "I believe that an offer will  be made for us to choose, and I  think our position should be  united." Wilson suggested that  a public debate be held where  politicians and members of the  public aired their views, followed by a, meeting of the two  mayors and the SCRD chairman where a consensus should  be reached.  The municipal representatives  both agreed that such a plan  was in everyone's best interest.  Sechelt Alderman Joyce  Kolibas admitted, "We felt that  to split up like this was going to  make us look ridiculous in Victoria."  It was agreed that Chairman  Jim Gurney would try to talk  with the mayors and agree on  procedures for the public  meeting, with a suggested date  of November 5.

Sunnycrest Mall, Gibsons  Gifts & Gems lip  886-2023    by Marguerite  If your spring flowering bulbs  did not give you the large  blooms you expected this year,  chances are they need to be  divided and now is the time to  do it. Separate the clumps and  replant the new, smaller sections.  Old raspberry canes should  be cut out now to prevent their  harbouring disease over the  winter.  Madonna lilies should be  planted right away, and there's  still time for bulbs including  narcissus, owing to our Indian  summer weather. A little  bonemeal scattered over a well  watered, prepared bed is ideal.  Conifers, yews, and all  broad-leaved evergreens should  be planted before the end of the  month. It's a good idea to check  and clean the lawn mower  before putting it away for the  winter. Also, drain the garden  hose if you're finished with it  before frosts crack it.  The spring bedding plants  should be planted as soon as  possible where they are to  flower. These include wallflowers, forget-me-nots,  polyanthus and double daises.  October is a suitable time to  prepare the sites where shrubs  are to be planted next month.  Dig out a hole two spades deep  and at least four feet wide.  Have the bottom forked up and  well rotted organic matter mixed with it.  The top soil is then replaced  adding compost, manure and  leaf mold.  Pioneer Park has been well  prepared for the spring bulbs by  Gibsons Garden Club volunteers. A point of interest, the  bright green bushes, which are  an annual, have been left so that  we can all enjoy their change of  colour before dying. The are  called 'Kochi', Mexican fire  bush, or summer cypress.

And the Roberts Creek  Volunteer Fire Department's  Hallowe'en fireworks display is  supposed to be bigger and better  than ever: if they can set them  off at all. Chief Mulligan says  the dry weather is a real problem, especially if there's a wind  that night.  The pyrotechnic display is  tentatively set for 7:15 Saturday  night at the golf course.

LIBRARY SERVICES  The Roberts Creek Community Library will be open  every Tuesday evening from 6  to 8 pm starting November 3.  With the newly acquired space  there is room for a desk and  table so that students and others  wishing to use reference and  reading materials may do so in  the library without having to  carry them home. It will also  provide another evening so that  people who work during the day  can have better access to the  library both for taking out and  returning their books.  Many new children's books  have been added to the library's  shelves recently. The bright pictures and creative stories are a  real joy! A new group of adult  books are also being processed  and will be filling up the new  book section.  The library also carries a  selection of large print books.  These are a real help for many  with visual problems.  Be sure to ask the volunteers  at the desk if you need any help  when using the library. They are  there for you and are happy to  give any assistance they can.

The department recently  acquired the equipment truck  they've been contemplating for  some time.  Your taxes will not go up  because of it.

Gibsons Coast News, October 26,1987  7.  iSiiiii^HI^Biijffliii��  et of unmellowed muse  by George Cooper, 886-8520  Last October 3 at the Arts  Centre in Sechelt Helen  Potrebenko gave readings from  her two volumes of poems  Walking Slow (1985) and Life,  Love and Unions (1987).  "My book may sell only 80  copies or so each," she said,  "and I reach more people by  these readings around the province."  Certainly we are not a poetry  buying public but we  gladly  hear what these poets are at  pains to tell us. Helen  Potrebenko has something to  tell us about injustices in our  society and she does this with  humour, a humour always  sharp and often grim.  Helen Potrebenko has been a  farm child, a taxi driver, a  typist. She sees injustices  through the eyes of the oppressed. Oppressed by an economic  and social system that has  destroyed our farm population,  that denies women their rights,  The Old Gibsons Elementary School known as the School District  46 Resource Centre is one of two buildings designated by Town  Council to be Heritage Sites. ���Joel Johnstone photo  PORTRAITS  Opening Special  June Boe Photo Gallery  449 Marine Drive  886-7955  that is unfair to races other than  white, that is unfair to the  young.  In her novel Taxi (1975)  Helen Potrebenko presents  these same themes in stark  dramatic form. Her protagonist, a woman taxi driver in Vancouver, observes a society showing its seamy side. The taxi  driver has only a gloomy, often  despairing, view of that society  of both the poor and better off.  The novel is set in the times  of the Vietnam war, hippies, the  War Measures act, and protest  marches for causes great and  small. And it seems, the driver  thinks, the US dream is turning  to shreds and its people leaning  not towards revolution but to  fascism.  When a fare says to the taxi  driver, "We need to open our  parks for mining," she replies  by quoting Steinbeck's question, "How come progress  looks like destruction?"  A native Indian says to the  taxi driver, "Sure hard to make  a living when you're not a white  man."  And a few other gleanings  from Taxi: When a woman fare  says she's glad the NDP had  won because then Gaglardi was  out and all his nationality are  crooks, the taxi driver wonders  whether 'NDP supporters were  on the average more degenerate  than their opposition...not  much of a contest there. At least  the woman paid the fare.'  And when she takes an  American citizen and his wife  on a sight-seeing tour of the city, he tells the taxi driver, "I  read about foreign domination  of your economy in your local  papers. Why don't you throw  out the British as we did." She  corrects him concerning who's  dominating Canada now.  Thought is distilled in the two  volumes of verse, the better to  convey the needle sharp satire.  Here are a couple of samples.  In her 'Cheap Labour', about  the   exploitation   of   women,  Potrebenko says,  "...always been expected  that women would do.  men's work ���\l  so long as they do all the  women's work as well."

The piece was  beautifully done, as Eileen built  realistic images and kept the  story moving to a powerful ending.  The second speaker was  teenager Nick Novak who did a  six minute talk about herself  called 'Sadly the Porcelain  Doll'.  Faye Lewis, her evaluator,  felt that the strong points were  her poise and amazing ability  with words and the clarity of  her voice.  Table Toppers was conducted  by George Cavalier. This is  where a topic is tossed at a person and on the spur of the moment a two minute talk is given.  It's amazing what people came  up with.

Davis Bay News i�� Views  Zoning changes  !  by Jean Robinson, 885-2954  As reported in this column in  an earlier issue, there are going  to be some changes made in the  Commercial Zoning numbers.  What was once CI, 2, or 3  before, now has a different  meaning. While the Davis Bay  area along the highway is marked red for commercial from the  Peninsula Market to the Casa  Martinez, it also contains some  three different commercial  meanings.  If you are interested in learning about this before the information meeting on October 31,  you may speak with Bill LeNeve  and Ed Cuylits at the Wilson  Creek Hall on October 27. They  will be there from three to four  pm and again from seven to  eight pm on that Tuesday.  This is merely information  and must not be considered  directional in any way.

The meeting between the  SCRD, District of Sechelt  representatives, Davis  Bay/Wilson Creek Association  representatives, and Tucker  Forsyth of the Ministry of  Highways was to determine  who would develop the Davis  Bay Park and foreshore.  Though four members of the  public were present, at the time  the Coast News was asked to  leave because Forsyth did not  wish to speak for the Ministry  to the public through the  newspaper.  It was indicated those present  were invited guests.  Director Jim Gurney said he  regretted the request but it was  important to have Forsyth present.  Committee Chairman Jack  Marsden later told the Coast  News it was resolved the Davis  Bay Park and foreshore would  be developed jointly by the  SCRD and the District of  Sechelt as a regional park.  .

Hallowe'en means fireworks,  hot dogs, sparklers, fun and  games, costumes and bon fires.  Fire did I say! That's a scary  word in this dry weather, so  unless we have a downpour of  rain our usual big bon fire will  have to be replaced with what?  More games? More food? We  can have both! Anyone who  wishes, bring along some  cookies or cake or munchies of  some sort.  Do you know a game that  would be fun? Bring it along.  Edna has volunteered to man  the kitchen, Dolly will man the  hot dog line, Bathgates have  ordered the fireworks and the  young folk are going to  decorate the hall.  Saturday evening in costume!

RATEPAYERS GO AHEAD  A new executive for the Area  B Ratepayers Association was  established at last Sunday's annual general meeting. There was  lots of interest in the organization, all, of whom .voted a  special vote of thanks to Gerry  Berthelet who has held it  together for so long without too  much input from members.  Some 18 new members signed  up at the meeting. There will be  more news on this later after the  executive get together.  HALL USAGE  There was a fairly good  representation at the meeting on  Thursday night at the SCRD office when the matter of usage of  Coopers Green Hall was discussed. No policy was actually  set as the purpose of the  meeting was to receive input  from residents. Some good suggestions were made and will be  considered when the time comes  to actually put the policies in  Writing.  GET WELL WISH  All our good wishes for a  speedy recovery go out to a very  special gentlemen who had to be  admitted to St. Mary's Hospital  while on a visit from Calgary.  He is Dave Rintoul who is the  father of Connie Hobbs of  Redrooffs. We hope he is well  enough to go home soon.  TOM WHITE DIES  Our sympathies go out at this  time to Gladys White on the loss  of her dear husband Tom. The  Whites had lived in the Halfmoon Bay area for some eight  years before moving to Sechelt.  Prior to his retirement Tom was  on the advertising executive of  MacMillan-Bloedel.  Tom came to Canada from  the Isle of Wight when he was  15 years old. He and Gladys  were married for almost 40  years and there are four sons  and two daughters as well as 10  grandchildren. Tom and Gladys  made many good friends in the  area who will be saddened at his  passing. A memorial service was  held at St. Hilda's Church.  WATCH YOUR SPEED  I have been asked to bring to  the attention of drivers on  Redrooffs Road that the speed  limitis 50 km all the way. There  have been some near misses,  particularly in the early morning  when children are on the road  Middlepoint  bush fire  Both Halfmoon Bay and  Pender Harbour Volunteer Fire  Departments responded to a  bush fire at the residence of  Gordon and Liz Wilson in Middlepoint on October 27.  Through the co-operative efforts of both departments the  fire was quickly brought under  control although Middlepoint is  outside of the fire protection  areas of both departments.  It will be recalled that in April  of this year Regional Board  Representative Wilson was  quoted as saying that both Halfmoon Bay and Pender Harbour  Fire Departments had refused  to attend a structure fire in the  Middlepoint area.  At the time, Halfmoon Bay  Chief Greg Phelps stated that  Halfmoon Bay Fire Department  would attend a fire outside its  own district if manpower were  available and there was no  danger of compromising fire  protection in Halfmoon Bay.  on the way to school and drivers  are hurrying to work. You can't  stop quickly enough in an  emergency if you are doing 80,  so watch it!

This locally initiated project  is intended to help rebuild the  Volunteer  recognition  course  One of the most important  aspects of running any kind of  volunteer organization is knowing your volunteers and how  best you can show them your  appreciation.  This sounds simple, but all  too often volunteers feel exploited or unappreciated and it  doesn't take long before they  start saying 'no' to requests for  help.  Colleen Goodrich is giving a  course in Volunteer Recognition  this November through Continuing Education.  Those who wish to take the  course should register as soon as  possible by calling 886-8841. It  takes place on November 14,  from noon to 3 at Chatelech  Secondary and costs $7.50 plus  $3 for materials, and fees  should be paid by October 31.

The fry  will spend the next two and a  half years in Rainy River before  migrating out to sea, where they  will spend another two years  before returning to spawn.  Only 1% of the fry released  will return to spawn, due to in-  stream and ocean predation on  steelhead by man and nature.  The subsequent 120 returning  adults, should provide a  substantial   boost   to   current  steelhead populations. Last  years's float counts of the Rainy  river was 50 adults.

Weather, plus road and vehicle conditions, are  factors in about 20% of accidents in B.C.  But the other 80%? They're caused by people:  bv human action and human condition.  Accidents in 1986 resulted in a recbrd-breaking  539,000 Autoplan claims. About one every' 60 seconds.  In 1987, we're breaking that record.

We're working to reduce the number of accidents  through traffic safety education. And by promoting  the use of safety belts.  As co-sponsors, with the Ministry of Attorney-  General, of the CounterAttack Against Drinking Driving,  we're striving to cut the number of alcohol-related  accidents and deaths in B.C.  ICBC also works with school children and educators, the police, safety councils and civic governments  on continuing "grass roots" traffic safety programs.  At ICBC, we're doing what we can. But the real  solution lies with the individual motorist.   And what can you do?  Obey the rules. We all know them. Stick to the  speed limit. Use your turn signals. Don't run yellow (and  especially red) lights. Come to a complete stop at stop  signs. Don't drink and drive. These are the "human  actions" that prevent accidents. In any weather.

The sketches  of her children. A boat once,  owned. Artwork by her  daughter.  And the portrait she had  taken to hang on the wall at  Gibsons Town Hall alongside  the other mayors.  "I never think of my job as  1 mayor as anything other than  another person trying to make  things better for the community," says the incumbent as  another election approaches. "I  only want to see the town and  area develop without losing our  ideals and without basically  changing the structure of our  community."  She admits she doesn't really  have a prepared platform for  the upcoming election because  of a conscious decision to remain an earthy person.  "Though I would certainly  like to be re-elected I will be reelected because people feel I've  represented them in a manner  which they want or expect."  Anything posing a threat or  potential benefit to the town is  her priority.  The immediate issues which  come to mind are the damaged  condition of the government  wharf, economic development,  and restructuring the area in a  well thought out and well talked  about manner.

She is patient in making up  her mind about the SCRD and  Gibson's involvement in the  Economic Development Commission, choosing to wait for  the results of a study undertaken by a consulting firm  whose recommendations would  be a determining factor.  Bringing Port Mellon into the  same provincial tax situation as  Gibsons and Areas E and E-jn  order to create more tax uniformity in existing and potential  services would benefit the whole  area, she says.  At present, Strom says Port  Mellon pays only regional and  recreational tax to the area with  the remainder going to the provincial government and this  area is not seeing it come back  in the form of grants or funding.  She has a strong belief in the  democratic system, noting that  she thinks public hearings are  great because of the input  directly from the people she  feels she is obligated to represent.  M axwe 11  has time  by Joel Johnstone  In a quiet, orderly, well-kept  home just under 'the bluff,'  Bob Maxwell sits in the comfort  of his retirement home contemplating his mayoralty candidacy.  "I don't think people will  vote for me because I'm a greatgrandfather or because of my  technical background," he says.  But 26 months of two accumulative terms as an alderman has given him the feeling ���  he's "attained a degree of  respect." ���%  The   former   engineering;  technologist   believes   his  analytical   and   investigative  nature would help him serve'  well as.mayor of Gibsons.  He's owned property here for  20 years, moving here 10 years7  ago to develop and live.  It's his home and he says, if  elected, he would endeavor to  keep government costs down  but be realistic at the same time.  "We do have to raise money  and spend it to the same degree  people put on the services."  Along with that he considers  giving administrators more  powers but, simultaneously,  making them more responsible  for their actions through performance reviews.  A committee or commision  to work more closely with police  in the community and an intent  to back up bylaws with enforcement or strike them from the  books is only part of the array  of issues which could be considered a platform if platforms,  as a formality, were to be implemented in this election.  For youth, Maxwell sees a  need for young people to have  recreational facilities, such as a  skateboard bowl, to benefit  their energitic activities at an  early age. But he also believes  those coming out of those  youthful years should be self-  motivated and shouldn't expect  the society they are beginning to  pay their way into to provide  them with something to do.  Being unemcurnbered by  another job, he feels this will  allow him the availability to  fulfill many duties both officially and personally to the public.

What I don't  like is after. Not just the strewn candy wrappers and the peanut shells  but as the days go by - the soggy pumpkin. So this year's Hallowe'en  plea is 'Save your Pumpkin'. Save it for some better fate, such as  eating. For those who have only ever eaten canned pumpkin pie pulp  -this bears no resemblance to the delicate flavour of the real thing.  To pulp your pumpkin - Cut it into sections. Place it in a steamer with  about an inch of water under it and steam for about 25 minutes. Cool  slightly. Cut off rind and shove through a strainer. This is not arduous.  I pulped a medium size pumpkin to Joni Mitchel singing 'Unchained  Melody' - no hardship! You can leave your pulp for a few hours then  drain off any excess liquid. Then:  PUMPKIN LOAF  IV2 cups flour  2 teaspoons baking powder  1 teaspoon baking soda  pinch salt  1 cup sugar  1 cup pumpkin pulp  2 teaspoons cinnamon  2 eggs  V2 cup oil  V2 cup currants  1. Sift dry ingredients, including sugar, into a bowl.  2. Beat eggs, add oil, beat until frothy, add pumpkin and beat again.  3. Add all dry ingredients gradually, mixing constantly, until well  blended. Add currants.  4. Turn into a greased and floured loaf pan. Bake at 375��F for 45  minutes. The recipe doubles and freezes successfully.  Try cooking a stew in your (whole) pumpkin - just your-regular stew  mixture in a hollowed out pumpkin, replace the 'lid' and cook for half  an hour longer than usual but otherwise following your normal stew  recipe. Delicious!  Happy Hallowe'en!  NEST LEWIS  ieiftt t>y Itetti; W6 d$m^ 14.

At parched Keremeos  where the highway branches  north, we pick up some fresh  veggies at a roadside stand.  Then we are rolling through  Osoyoos with its pseudo-  Spanish decor that seems to  have no historical basis whatsoever, and climbing up from  the sun-baked valley towards  Anarchist Summit.  The country between the  Summit and the Kettle Valley is,  for my money, some of the  most breathtaking in BC,  especially at this time of year.  The rolling, green hills, dotted  with farms and ranches, undulate away in emerald majesty  like the very meadows of heaven. It was almost exactly 20  years ago that I first travelled  through this marvellous area  and it still staggers me with its  beauty.  Down we glide from those  magical vistas into the Kettle  Valley and stop at Rock Creek,  where the Cariboo goldrush got  started almost 140 years ago. At  a road-side cafe, I attempt to  contact my old friends, Ted and  Marge Poole, who first introduced me to this part of the  country. But there is no answer  so we are obliged to take a rain-  check.  At the historic old mining  town of Greenwood, with its  abandoned smelterstack and  turn-of-the-century mainstreet,  harking back to palmier times,  we pull up at the local museum.  We also inquire about the abandoned town of Phoenix, a few  miles north. The girl at the desk  informs us that the place was  totally levelled in the fifties by a  subsequent mining operation.  There is nothing left of once-  thriving Phoenix but an enormous hole in the ground.  Scratching this one off our  list of possibilities, we trundle  on to Grand Forks and the Yale  Hotel>. which specializes in  authentic Doukhobor food.  Yvonne, who has eaten there  before, assures, me that the cabbage rolls are the best she has  ever tasted. She is not exaggerating. We finish our supper  and head north towards the  West Kootenays, country that is  totally new to me.  The road to Nelson wintjs >  over the lofty Monashee Range*���*  through miles of uninhabited  country. Except for the size of  the trees, the terrain is very  similar to parts of the west  coast. It is a long steep climb to  Paulson Summit. We crest it at  last and start to descend.  At the hill's bottom, we pass  the pulpmill town of Castlegar,  sprawling across the floor of a  wide valley. This was originally  another Doukhobor settlement  and boasts a reconstructed Russian village. We make a note to  check this out on our return  journey.  We scoot through the  strangely-named little community of Thrums, past the impressive Kootenay Dam and at  long last, with twilight beginning to dust down on the West  Kootenays, into Nelson itself.  Nelson spills dramatically  across a hillside between tall  mountains, on the west arm of  Kootenay Lake. It is definitely  one of the most attractive towns  I have run across in my travels,  a fascinating blend of the past  and the present. Nelson calls  itself the heritage capital of BC  and the title is more than mere  chamber-of-commerce flack.  The town is a living monument  to the past. It boasts 370-odd  historical buildings, many of  them dating back to before the  turn of the century and most of  them still in active use. Only  Victoria can claim more.  Yvonne and I are anxious to  examine some of these functional relics of the silver boom  but it is getting late and we've  had a long day. She phones her  daughter to announce our arrival. Sandi shows up shortly  and guides us across a mini  Lion's Gate bridge to the house  she is renting in North Nelson.  Here, we unpack.and unwind  from our journey in the resort  like setting, with daylight fleeing  and the lake spread out below  us, a wind-ruffled mirror.  The next day is set aside for  exploring Nelson. After  breakfast, we head back over  the bridge, park the car and embark on foot through streets  that once knew the pounding of  hooves in long-ago horse races.  Sandi, an old Nelson-hand by  now, acts as our tour guide,  pointing out the various  highlights. The old town more  than lives up to our expectations. It is a veritable treasure  trove of false-fronted stores and  elaborate late Victorian architecture. The old Hudson's  Bay Store has been turned into a  pocket mall but contrives to  maintain its unique character.  The City Hall dates back to  1902, an imposing gabled and  towered green-roofed structure  of grey stone that echoes the  Provincial Parliament Buildings. (This is no coincidence,  they were designed by the same  architect, Walter (?) Ratten-  bury). The once decrepit Hume  Hotel, of similar vintage, has  been completely refurbished  and boasts a unique bar called  The Library that has the varnished ambience of an oldtime  saloon. Under the spell of the  past we wander from landmark  to historic landmark.  Nelson today is no longer the  vital mining centre it once was,  but a thriving tourism industry  has kept it relatively prosperous. The town's idyllic setting and the lure of its legend  are important factors in its prosperity. Recently, in common  with many other parts of BC,  picturesque Nelson hs been  'discovered' by Hollywood and  two major productions, Steve  Martin's Roxanne and Bill Forsyth's Housekeeping were filmed here in 1986. There will undoubtedly be more.  Yvonne, Sandi and I spend  most of the day prowling  Nelson's downtown and cruising along the outlying streets  where there are many old and  elegant private homes. We wind  things up with a brief impromptu picnic on a rock bluff at Gyro  Park which overlooks the city  and head back across the  bridge. Tomorrow we get down  to some serious and much wider  ranging exploration into the old  mining country beyond Nelson.  To be continued...

They sang to her and for her;  they recounted their love and  respect for her. It was a  privilege to be there bathing in  so much love and goodwill.  Two of Nikki's three sons  were in attendance which pleased her most because, as she  said: "Above everything else, I  am a mother."  Ruth Forrester told of how  Nikki came among the small  music group in Halfmoon Bay  which had been meeting to  entertain themselves and how  she cajoled, encouraged and inspired them into becoming the  Halfmoon Hams, which group  ; entertained all and sundry up  land down the Coast for several  >years. The Hams were  (represented and sang a brief and  ;loving medley for Nikki.  j A goodly portion of the  'men's group The 69'ers were  !there .and directed a loving  I musicaT tribute to Nikki.  7 One of them,, George  iCavalier, offered a superbly  {professional offering of the  ; Flanders and Swann classic  !

On an evening such as this  with such a personage to be  honoured one would hope that  the music provided for the dancing portion of the celebration  would appropriately be wonderful. And so it was.  It was billed as the Ken  Dalgleish Quintet with Signi  Murgatroyd and those two  names alone were enough to  assure us that all would be well.  The appearance in rare good  form of long-time Dalgleish  associate Mike Dunn on guitar  ensured success. The delighted  interactions between Ken,  Mike, and Signi were as much a  joy to behold as their music was  a joy to the ear.  Jerome Jarvis, the drummer,  Mark Dowding, the saxophonist, and Joel Berinstein,  on the bass, lent impeccable  depth and colour to the music.  This was an eclectic group,  doing as much justice to Patsy  Klein songs as to the Billy Holiday offering; as much at  joyously home with sambas,  reggae, polkas and waltzes as  they were with rock and roll.  In a program of unfailing  delight my personal favourites  were Sigrii's beautiful rendition  of the Billy Holiday number  You don't know what love is  -with just breathtakingly  beautiful accompaniment from  Dalgleish and Dunn and haunting saxophone breaks from  Dowding - and Mike Dunn's  solo spot doing an extremely  up-tempo version of La Bamba  in excellent Spanish.  JSIike told me later that it was  the first time he had sung in  public since leaving the Coast a  dozen years ago and it took this  reprobate back to memorable  musical  evenings in  the Pen  Hotel with Dunn hunched over  his guitar and belting out some  of the raunchiest versions of the  Rolling Stones ever sung.  Signi   Murgatroyd   is   a  wonderful singer of intelligence  and feeling. She twice   paid-  tribute to Nikki Weber for the  role Nikki played in encourag  ing her to perform and her love  and respect for Nikki compounded with .her joy in the  supportive and skillfull back-up  music saw her in the finest form  throughout the evening. Simply  wonderful.  All in all, a night most surely  to remember.  & DINING ROOM  AGAIN  Oct. 30 & 31 - Grey Star  GIBSONS  LEGION  c       Branch #109  Hallowe'en Party  Saturday 9pm - 1am  Members & Guests Welcome  A Howling Good Time For Everyone!  y  Chef Jurg  has returned  from Switzerland  Affordable fine dining  from 5:30 pm Thursday  thru Saturday  West on Gower Point Road  til you reach the Sea  886-2887  Your guide to  the finest in  area dining  DINING GUIDE  A listing of  restaurants  and pubs  (he Cwwt  'Where did you say you had that delicious steak dinner?"  we asked. "The Omega, that's were," was the reply. So off  we went. That's also where I got the juiciest, melt-in-your-  mouth baby back ribs I've ever tasted this side of the Rockies.  Well, the Omega lists Alberta Grade A meat for its steaks  and my partner ordered a nine ounce New York. Our entrees  came to us piping hot, dressed with greens and red vegetables  and a very special 'house' potato presentation with creamy  cheese sauce. "I'll have three plates of those please," I  though, being the potato buff in my house. "What's a  waistline?" Anyway these plated were abundantly heaped  and by the time I had devoured my saucy baby ribs I couldn't  have handled anything else.  Although there was a dessert menu available to tantalize  and lure me into uncontrolled gluttony, I could not allow  myself the pleasure this time. After all, I had had soup...a  very flavourful vegetable soup and endless munches on garlic  bread.  Next time, if I didn't order their highly rated special house  pizza or their weekly special, which this week incidentally was  fresh prawns prepared and displayed with pita bread, normal-'  ly listed on the menu for $14.95, now $12.95, I would order  something from their grand selection of appetizers, haye.the^  soup again or a Greek salad loaded with Feta (most  restaurants in the city are stingy with the Feta, but not the  Omega) and then I could find room for the dessert I missed  this time.

They scrubbed staircases, carried coal for the  \fireplaces, cleaned bedrooms,  | emptied chamberpots and per-  'formed a staggering number of  Mother duties. Conditions varied  jjfrom household to household of  ���course but even under the best  ���of circumstances, the Tweenies'  |ot was not an easy one. They  were probably the hardest-  .;done-by of all the servants.  ';Their life was one long round of  -;cheerless drudgery. They were  ���ip'oorly paid and their behaviour  was governed by a series of  strict house rules. Violation of  these rules (one of which, forbade them to have boyfriends or  'followers' as they were called)  could mean instant dismissal  with no references.  While the Tweenies' lot was a  hard one, it did represent a certain security. A young girl turned out on the streets of London  with no credentials was in dire  straits. She generally had only  one direction to turn. Of the  thousands of prostitutes who  plied the London alleys in Victorian times and even later,  almost half of them were  former domestics. They were  known as 'Dolly Mops'.  If the servants of the great  houses were products of a rigid  class structure, they maintained  an equally strict heirarchy  among their own ranks. As fans  of Upstairs; Downstairs will  recall, Hudson the butler was  very much top dog among the  domestics. Even the cook bowed, albeit grudgingly, to his  prissy edicts. This was the  established order of things and  it was rigidly adhered to. In  larger households, the butler  and the footman even ate in  separate quarters. At the bottom of the heap of course, were  the Tweenies, the scullery maids  and the boot boys.  Conditions gradually improved among the serving classes  over the years. Hours were  shortened, wages were raised  and restrictions regarding  behaviour and dress were relaxed. Obsolete jobs such as footman were phased out and the  introduction of modern appliances,   such   as   vacuum  cleaners and washing machines,  lightened, the work load of the  skivvies.

Then World War II  erupted, changing thinking patterns and blowing away many  archaic vestiges of the past.  When the smoke finally cleared  five years later, the old domestic  service system (with a few stubborn exceptions) had gone the  way of the Dodo.  In Not In Front Of The Servants, Frank Dawes has successfully captured a lost lifestyle  that seems much further in the  past than it actually was.

ASSOCIATE DEALER  Sechelt Tire & Battery Sales  MADEIRA MACHINE SHOP  Francis Peninsula Place,  Pender Harbour  883*9551  SI HI 9  raist mmm �� 18  Coast News, October 26,1987  Courageous lady passed  by Maryanne West  Meg (Margaret) Thatcher  who died last week at the age of  95 came to live on Gower Point  Road 30 years ago when she  retired from a nursing career.  She was already showing the  first signs of the debilitating illness which would eventually rob  her, not only of mobility but  also of coherent speech. While  her body may have been frail in  recent years there was nothing  frail about her indomitable  spirit.  It's not difficult to imagine  the frustrations of a mind, still  active and alert, imprisoned  with little means of expression  or communication with others.  Yet, she was always cheerful,  interested in the world outside  her hospital bed and it was easy  to make her smile. She was, and  always will be, an aspiration to  all who knew her.  Meg was a very private person, with a wide spectrum of interests in world affairs, nature,  the arts, books, gardening; she  never seemed to have the need  to talk about herself. Her father  was a Church of England  minister and the family first  came to Canada soon after the  turn of the century to visit  Meg's older brother who was  working on a ranch in Alberta.  While there the Reverend  Thatcher was asked to look  after the Anglican parish in  Golden, B.C. during the  absence of the incumbent. Here  they fell in love with the In-  vermere Valley to which they  returned when Meg was 15 or  16.  Always an independent spirit,  she went away to university in  Edmonton, returning home to  take up a nursing career after  her sister was drowned in a  boating accident.  Brought up in the strict moral  and social constraints of Victorian England, and living in a  rural community where nothing  is hidden from public scrutiny.  it must have been a decision of  great courage and love which  motivated Meg to adopt orphaned twin boys who were in  need of a home.  Later, as the boys reached  their teens, Meg, with her  widowed mother, moved the  family to Vancouver where she  worked at the Willow Chest  Clinic.  Meg's independent spirit and  determination were demonstrated again in her 80's when she  made a trip to New Zealand to  attend the centennial celebrations of Christ Church  Cathedral designed by her ar  chitect grandfather.  Then, 10 years ago, she suffered a stroke and doctors and  family, considering her age felt  she would need constant care  and settled her into a home in  Vancouver. They had however,  reckoned without Meg. She battled back from the effects of the  stroke and with the help of the  Homemakers service was able  to spend another year in her  own home among her treasured  family possessions.  I've always thought that Meg  was an example of importance  of instilling good manners and  courtesy in small children so  that it becomes an unconscious  habit. Meg's Victorian standards must have been laid down  in childhood and they never  deserted her. She never took  herself too seriously and was  always patient  and gracious.  In leaving us she would have  wanted to express her thankfulness and gratitude to all those  who have cared for her with so  much love and devotion at St.  Mary's Hospital and before that  her Homemakers and the staff  and volunteers at the Kiwanis  Home.

Referendum refused  Voters in Area A and B will  not be asked whether or not  they wish to pay taxes to support the Sechelt arena.  Reports from the Advisory  Planning Committee (APC) in  both areas were presented at last  weeks meeting of the Sunshine  Coast Regional District and  both groups advised against  holding a referendum in their  areas.  Now Sechelt citizens will bear  the tax burden of supporting the  arena, says Alderman Joyce  Kolibas.  "We'll just have to run it as  long as we can," she says of the  deficit-run facility."  Alderman Craig voiced a  concern that the public itself  was not allowed to address the  issue.  Has it really been  a whole year?  Canada Savings Bonds go on sale  October 26th.

Editor:  > Thansgiving Day has come  and gone. That great, round  harvest moon which begins the  season in which we celebrate the  bringing home of the harvest, is  now a thin ghost of itself. Many  of us sat down with relatives  and friends and enjoyed the  traditional Thanksgiving dinner, most likely a roast chicken  or turkey. This, sadly, may be  the last festival of that kind we  can celebrate without endangering our health.  A year ago the Sunshine  Coast Peace Committee became  alarmed about the announcement that the process of food irradiation to extend 'shelf life'  would begin in Canada. At that  meeting we wrote protests, and  sfcnt them off to Ottawa,  'lama contributor to Energy  Pjrobe, a powerful critic of the  iiuclear industry. Energy Probe  reminds us that decayed meat  smells bad and we don't eat it.  Such meat can contain botulism, a deadly poison. Irradiation prevents decay but does not  ftill the botulism bacteria.  Jlecause of the danger of accidental botulism contamination, the US government has  banned   the   irradiation   of  poultry.  Tests of animals fed on irradiated food, though still incomplete, show damage to  chromosomes, kidney disease,  abnormal blood cells and  premature death. Cancer-  causing aflatoxins are common  in some irradiated foods. Irradiation also destroys many  important vitamins.  These findings have stimulated so much discussion and  roused so much opposition that  an all-party parliamentary committee spent four months listening to scientists and other experts. Last May the committee ���  unanimously decided that food  irradiation is too suspect. Chairwoman Mary Collins, M.P.,  said, "We do not think the  health of Canadians should be  compromised."  Despite all this, our government has not condemned food  irradiation and there is a well  founded suspicion that Health  and Welfare, our supposed  guardian, will ignore the  parliamentary report and allow  us to be made into human  guinea pigs.

It is our ailing nuclear  industry, which has squandered  billions of our taxpayer's  money already, and now hopes  to delay going bankrupt by peddling poison in our food.  Another traditional festival is  coming in two months. The  chickens, turkeys and geese are  fattening for our Christmas dinners.  Is it possible that the  leaders of our government in  Ottawa can be so stupid as to  believe their own lies about the  safety of irradiated poultry? Or  will they have their own larders  stocked with clean food from  special farms? If so, how can  they be so cynical? I am writing  a letter to our Prime Minister to  remind him of our concerns.

At the same time they are  building an extended care unit  with federal funds?  Is this new unit going to be  full and if so does St. Mary's  have the funds to pay the staff  to care for a full extended care  unit? Why aren't funds being  used to improve on what they  already have? St. Mary's  definitely needs improving and  there are a lot of people who  will testify to that.  What has this hospital done  to deserve an accreditation? I  would like to know.  My six year old son is one of  the victims of the terrible inadequacies of St. Mary's Hospital.  When I rushed him to this institution with a very badly  broken leg, severed artery etc. (a  shocking mess), he was left until  the next day because there was  no surgeon available on the  Coast.

At stake could be our survival. &'  In the decades ahead the;  quality of the environment must  be the paramount and basic  concern. Accepting the United  States as a senior partner and  the means to future prosperity,  would be disastrous.  At present the United States  are militaristic and totally  dedicated to an unbridled consumer society. Weapons are a  basic industry. Untold tons of  consumer production go into  land fills. Millions of automobiles clog highways and  cities. Hydrocarbons pour into  the air killing forests and warming the planet. Farmlands are  saturated with herbicides and  pesticides, killing people and the  land. Oceans are polluted and  their life decimated. The drive  for more production and short  term profit is a madness affecting the total culture.  Canada must not be a budding microcosm of all this. We  must stop and think!

That way they know what is  going on."  The onus of bylaw enforcement also is a public matter, she  says.  "We have one bylaw officer  who works very hard. Residents  have to be responsible too. She  can't do everything."  And sewage odours are  something "you can't allow the  community to put up with" but  "on the same hand you certainly cannot abandon the system  you have in place.  The combination of being  both   mayor   and   holding  another job doesn't bother her  or, she says, affect her ability to  do either one. She says her*  employers are very flexible,'  recognizing the responsibilities;  and demands made of her as a  public official.  Having lived in the Gibsons  area since leaving Sechelt in:  1950, Strom plans to continue  as she always has: trying to be-  conscientious of her and other's  well-being and maintaining an  objective view of issues  presented to her in her role as;  mayor.  "I do have strong opinions,"  she says, but "I'm not too proud to acknowledge when I've:  made a mistake or a poor judge-'  ment."  Alderman Maxwell  Continued from page 12  Regarding regional district  affairs he says that because of  money invested in economic initiatives he would "like to strike  a good harmonious relationship  with the SCRD without selling  the farm."  Good sound reason which  has worked for him in the past  would work well in the future  when dealing on behalf of Gibsons as both Mayor and the  town representative to the  SCRD, he says.  Public works are a large consideration, beach access identification, and, he says, "a  breakwater would have terrific  impact impact in every way" to  the town's well-being.  He would also like to create a  better climate for retirees "who  are a winter business benefit to  the area and may attract  developers."  He hopes that people con-;  sider him a fair person and;  "that I've annoyed the right"'  people in establishing this-:  fairness." ::  Cottage industry  Continued from page 1  clause is that small home operations are not subject to the added expenses commercial  operators have in competing  with home industries , such as  hair salon services.  Maxwell said that if these  operations are not subject to a  special tax, deferring some  amount of what they do not pay  in tax on commercial lease  space, then "they're not paying  their way.  "What obligation do we have  to businesses that do pay  taxes?" He asked council.  This 'home' section of 555-5  is also somewhat in conflict  with the Economic Development Strategy Plan's emphasis  on   promoting   "cottage   in--:  dustry", but both Strom and;!  Maxwell share a belief such in- ;'  dustry could flourish in par-'  ticular sectors of the economy  and that this bylaw would affect  only that  business which,  in  turn, affects existing commercial businesses.  Buchan says "It's a very  touchy subject where there's a  lot of public involvement.  "Whether this particular  amendment survives is open to  discussion."  There will be a public hearing  on the bylaw before its incep- ;  tion. At present it has only ,  reached the second of three re- ;  quired readings and has been ;  referred back to the planning l  committee.

SECHELT  Toll Free 664-6924  MDL 5792  by Iris Griffith  Do you go commercial  fishing or sports fishing? Then  it may be time to sharpen your  pen instead of your gutting  knife, and write some politicians. It may be up to you to  save your fish.  An agreement signed this  year - but not yet approved by  the Canadian cabinet - turns out  to be important to all people in  sports or commercial fishing.  The agreement is between the  Nishga Indian Council of the  Nass River watershed and the  Claims Negotiator of the  federal government. It gives to  Nishgas, exclusively, a large  share of any fish headed for the  Nass. Here is why it's important:  In B.C. there are Indian lands  bordering just about any stream  you name. Though the Nass is  way up north, if the Nishgas can  carry off their arrangement  there are already some other  bands who expect to get the  same privileges.  Gulf of Georgia fish, for example, are heading for various  rivers in summer and fall. They  could, and probably would, be  claimed by Lower Mainland  and Vancouver Island tribes.  So, for the name 'Nass',  substitute your favourite fishing  river or stream...and you'll get a  picture of the possible future.  Signed in secret, the agreement has never been made  public although it seals the fate  of hundreds of thousands of  salmon on their way to the Nass  to spawn, as well as some herring and halibut.  It affects thousands of commercial and sports fishermen  and their dependent processors  and suppliers. Yet none of these  were represented, or consulted,  or ever told the terms of the  agreement. (Our information is  incomplete and comes from  'leaks').  When the run of Nass salmon  appears off the coast and after  there are enough fish in the river  to spawn - when, in the past,  fishermen have usually been  permitted to work the Nass  estuary - under this agreement,  only Nishgas would be allowed  to., fish. Unless the Nishgas  could catch at least 37 percent -  of the sockeye and 20 to 25 per-?  cent of the other salmon, or/a  total of 120,000, fish, whichever  is greater, no hon-Nishgas could  fish.  In years following a poor run  of salmon, the Nishgas would  get an even higher percentage of  the catch. Critics point out that  this doesn't bar just non-  Indians. A large number of professional fishermen on the Nass  are Indians from other tribes,  and these would be left out too,  despite their own tradition of  fishing the Nass.  Right now it is a crime to sell  salmon which have been caught  up the river, above salt water.  Under the agreement, it would  become legal for Nishgas. Lacking a copy of the document, we  don't know whose job it would  be to make sure that enough  salmon reached the spawning  ground. We do know the wishes  of several other Indian bands,  waiting in the wings to see how  this agreement works out. They  want to be allowed to catch the  migrating fish out of 'their'  several streams, sell their catch,  and also look after the spawning requirements for that  stream.

Phone for Appointment  r  a great track record in caring  for spawners and young fish.  Just the same, many believe the  basic idea is wrong and  dangerous, like letting a  motorist be his own traffic cop  -even a good motorist.  "Who spoke for us?" ask  some of the non-Nishgas whose  lives are affected by the salmon  supply. The answer: no one.  The two parties to the agreement are the Nishga Indian  Council (which looks after the  interests of the Indians) and the  Department of Indian Affairs  (which also looks after the interests of the Indians).  Once the Nishgas, or other  native groups, come to 'own' a  part of any river's fish, their  'ownership' might in future end  up in private hands. There are  private interests who would like  to control various rivers and  creeks for land development,  hydro power and other purposes. These people might find  it easier to deal with a single,  often isolated community than  the whole federal government.  The forerunners of Canada's  government treated the  ancestors of present-day  Nishgas unjustly. The Nass  agreement is meant to compensate for that injustice.  Fishermen say: if the whole of  Canada was at fault, how come  it's the sports and commercial  fisheries that pay the penalty?  Do two wrongs make a right?  If you, too, object to the  Nass decision, write immediately to: Right Honourable Brian  Mulroney, Prime Minister,  House of Commons, Ottawa,  Ontario K1A 0A6.  Postage is free to MP's, so  why not send copies to all or  some of the following (also at  the House of Commons):  Honourable Tom Siddon,  Minister of Fisheries and  Oceans; Gerry St. Germain  MP, National Caucus Leader;  Ted Schellenberg MP, Chairman of the B.C. Caucus; Bill  McKnight MP, Minister of Indian Affairs and Northern  Development; George Henderson MP, Liberal Fisheries  Critic; Honourable John  Fraser, Speaker of the House,  and your own MP.  To Victoria you will need a  stamp, but it would be helpful  to send copies to Honourable  Bili\Vander Zalm, Premier;  Honourable John Savage,  Minister of Agriculture and  Fisheries; and your own MLA,  all at the Parliament Buildings,  Victoria, B.C.
