 !-���?  4*  Mayor Diane Strom shared in her election victory last weekend with husband Dan at the Omega Pizza,  Steak and Lobster House where family, friends, and supporters gathered to await news of her win returning her to a second term in office. ���Joel Johnsione photo  Election '87  Strom re-elected  ' Diane "Strom* wilf Iiotd' her title as Mayor of Gibsons for the  next three years.  The incumbent stood off the  challenge of Alderman Bob  Maxwell, receiving 413 votes to  his 205, defeating him more  confidently than the last time  the two faced each other in the  polls. In 1980, Strom edged out  Maxwell by 40 votes to take a  seat on council as an alderman.  Alderman Gerry Dixon sue-  fully retained his seat on council  with 418 votes to his credit.  John Reynolds has finally  succeeded in a bid for a seat on  council, drawing 357 votes. It  was Reynolds' third attempt to  gain a seat on Gibsons Council.  Newcomers, Laara Dalen  and Gladys Sluis, ran close to  each other with 209 and 191  votes, respectively.  Of the 1624 eligible voters 650  voted constituting a 40.2 percent turnout of overall eligible  voters.  In Gibsons  ' c_arty'ih the ballot counting at  Sechelt Municipal Hall it was  evident that Shanks, Wilson,  and MacLarty would be the  elected aldermen for the coming  three year term.  With an approximate 30 percent voter turnout, the final  results were Shanks 760, Wilson  681, MacLartv 521, Broughton  383, and Young 281.  Sechelt and West Sechelt  polls individually reflected the  final outcome but the Davis Bay  poll showed Wilson to be a  favourite over Shanks.  Both Shanks and Wilson  were in Sechelt Municipal Hall  during the counting and when  the totals were tallied, Shanks  received a kiss from his spouse  while Wilson exhuberantly  bounced out the door saying  something about dinner and a  bottle of wine.  Former Sechelt Chief Stan  Dixon has taken the Area C seat  on the regional board in/a  sweeping victory over incumbent Jack Marsden. When the  ballots were counted on Saturday night, Dixon came in with  108 votes to Marsden's 10, with  only 18 percent of eligible voters  casting ballots.  Also on the regional district  ballot was the referendum for  animal control, which was approved by a yes vote of 563 to  262.  In school board elections for  two trustee seats, incumbent  Doris Fuller lost her bid to  represent Area 2 , falling into  third place behind Lynn Chapman and Pat Stuart.  It was a clear win, with Chapman bringing in 427 votes,  Stuart with 400 votes, and  Fuller 335 votes. Bill Wescott of  Gambier Island came in last  with 263 votes.  Dock repairs soon?  by Joel Johnstone  Repairs to a collapsed  breakwater at Gibsons wharf  may soon be underway, NDP  MP Ray Skelly told the Coast  News recently.  Skelly says he has been  assured by Minister of Fisheries  and Oceans Tom Siddon the  money is available 'so it looks  like it's in the works'.  But when work will commence remains up in the air.  "It could be just prior to, or  just after, the New Year," Skelly said, but could not say exactly when.  "I sure as hell hope it's  before the Squamish wind, not,  after."  Last week, Skelly and opposition members met with Fisheries  officials to voice their concerns  over proposed privatization of  some wharfs and floats. The  Federal Government is looking  at the feasibility of setting up  Harbour Commissions made up  of local government and interested parties to operate and  maintain small craft harbours.  The   commissions,   he   says,  would be responsible for minor  repairs and operation with major repairs left to Fisheries and  Oceans.  Skelly's concern is the tax  burden and potential for increased charges to users of the  wharves to pay for shifts in  fiscal responsibilities from a  federal agency to a locally run  commission.  Last week, Canadian Coast  Guard Regional Manager Dave  Barratt mentioned the possibili  ty that Small Craft Harbours  Branch of Fisheries and Oceans  is considering the privatization  of its recreational floats attached to government wharves.  Meanwhile, Skelly is off to El  Salvador this week with an international escort for two  Salvadorean opposition leaders  hoping to ensure their safe  return after four years in exile.  It is an unofficial escort, not  sanctioned by the Canadian  government.  Accidents  Election night in the Gibsons area saw two serious car accidents. In one, a hydro pole was severed on the highway east  of town, causing the fire department to be later called because  of arcing electricity.  In the second accident a car pulling out of Andy's  Restaurant was broadsided by another vehicle. Two persons  are believed to have been injured, one seriously enough to require surgery.  Police say alcohol was involved and they are investigating  the exact cause.  Privatization  A public information meeting and panel discussion on the  Privatization of Public Services will be held at the Gibsons  Legion on Wednesday, November 25 at 7:30. Everyone is  welcome  In Sechelt  Views exchanged on  gravel extraction  by Ken Collins  "I think we had better wait  and listen," says Sechelt Alder-  manic candidate Nancy MacLarty about the Sechelt Indian  " Band gravel extraction project.  This comment came after a  Community Cable Television all  candidates meeting last Tuesday  ..evening when Regional District  Area C candidate Stan Dixon  was asked if he would like to  respond to widespread opposition and criticism of the Band's  plans to extract gravel. Dixon, a  former Chief of the Sechelts,  was persuasive. In a subsequent  interview with the Coast News,  Dixon reiterated his views.  "It took us 20 years to get out  from under the Indian Act and  on our first initiative people are  complaining," said Dixon,  "and it always seems to be the  same two or three people."  According to Dixon, the  strongest critics of the project  have never even asked the Band  what they were doing. "The  Sechelt Indian Band Office is  open to anyone and all they  have to do is to ask us what we  are doing," he said.  Dixon sees the gravel project  as the start of economic  development for the Sunshine  Coast. "The gravel pit is the  catalyst to make things spin,"  he said. "When people go from  100 percent welfare to employment, the first thing they do is  go out and buy a car.  "And where are the stores?"  . he asked, "They certainly aren't  on Indian land."  As far as employment was  concerned, he said, "We are not  going to employ only Band  members. There are many skills  needed that our people aren't  trained for."  To illustrate the magnitude of  the project he pointed out that  Construction Aggregates was  putting up 10 million dollars.  "We've done our  homework," he said. "It's been  Intimidation alleged  Wharfinger resigns  done right all along and it's be*.  ing done right now." '���������'*  Sechelt Mayor Bud Koch was,  asked for his comment and;  although he stated he had nof  seen the telecast he was certain  of his views. He stated he  believed there would still be  'noise pollution, esthetic pollu?  tion, and dust pollution'.       ;>  "When you put 1000 feet qi  conveyor out 100 feet above thd  water it is not like- seeing ajp(  eagle soar," he said. "Even ifj  you load barges with wet gravely  that wet slurry will slop all over,  and then dry and blow,  around." :*  But MacLarty thinks people  should consider the facts:  carefully before jumping to any  conclusions! "I'm prepared nq��  to be paranoid about thjS  thing," she said. "There's toCfe  many stories going around. Wfj��  had better wait and listen.      ��;  "You know," she added as*C  final note, "that breakwater  could go hand in hand with a  nice marina in Trail Bay."  by Joel Johnstone  Threats and intimidation arising from an ongoing parking  problem at the Gibsons Government Wharf has caused the  Canadian Coast Guard (CCG)  Harbours and Ports Depart-  j~���ient to make a few threats of  its own.  Regional Manager Dave Bar-.  ratt and Area Manager Terry  Berscheid, along with wharf  manager Larry Reardon, met  with Mayor Diane Strom,  RCMP Corporal Milt Wil-  helms, Kerry Eldred of Gramma's Pub, and Clay Young and  Garry Russell of the United  Fishermans and Allied Workers  Union (UFAWU) on November  17, to discuss what action could  be taken other than having the  CCG shut the wharf down to all  traffic.  Over the last five months  parking at the wharf has been  an experiment, outside the  regulations, governing most  wharves, which Berscheid says,  "worked good until July and  it's just escalated since then.  The trial is a failure because of  no support from 99 percent of  people using it. We're losing  our wharf manager because of  health... there fore we have no  choice but to barricade the  wharf."  This can be avoided, Barratt  told the meeting, if something  in the way of enforcement of  parking regulations can be,  assured and Reardon receive^  more cooperation from the  community and people using  the wharf. '"���  Reardon tendered his resignation at the end of October  because his "bluff has been called" by a minority of people  down at the wharf who know he  cannot have their vehicles towed  even though the regulations say  he can. He says tow truck  drivers in the town refuse to tow  the vehicles because of threats  they'd received during previous  attempts this summer.  Please turn to page 12  In Davis Bay  Cuylits questions zoning  by Ken Collins  Mayor Bud Koch pleasantly  surprised a full gallery of spectators at the conclusion of last  Wednesday's Sechelt Council  meeting when he opened the  floor for questions.  "Anybody?" he asked,  "Does anybody have any questions?"  This turn of events came after  Mr. E.A. Cuylits of Davis Bay  expressed his dissatisfaction  with the adjournment of the  Public Hearing on Zoning Bylaw 25. He believed a further  meeting would be held while the  mayor and council obviously  felt differently.  "There are 5000 people in the  community," explained Koch  as he proceeded to illustrate the  magnitude as well as the need  for the zoning by-law. He said it  could be expensive if they didn't  have something in place and  that nothing was cast in stone.  "We do have the capabilities  to change," he said, "The  language is the intent."  Cuylits was concerned about  the possibility of hotels popping  up in Davis Bay.  "This area is far too young to  support a hotel," rebutted  Koch, "but, you can't have a  closed community. We want to  have a look at everything."  One unidentified lady took  the floor and chastised council  on their failure to modify the  sidewalk curbs to accomodate  wheelchairs.  "The handicapped live in fear  when they have to go down the  road," she said, "What did  Rick Hanson go around the  world for?"  She also pointed out the shortage of handicapped parking.  "Thank you. We will attend  to it," promised Koch.  Retiring Alderman Ken Short  took the opportunity to thank  the spectators for coming out  and participating.  Mr. E.A. Cuylits of Davis Bay voiced concern to Sechelt Municipal  Council last Wednesday that Zoning By-law 25 should have had  more public debate. ���Ken Collins photo  Fatality  William August, age 34, of the Sechelt Indian Band, was  killed while crossing Highway 101 in Davis Bay about 4:30  pm last Friday.  August was struck by a car. The driver was a woman from  the Gibsons area.  _____fi_s   _ .  ^ _rj_.____._____a_n Coast News, November 23,1987  /*"  The departure of Alderman Joyce Kolibas from the  board of the regional district must be regarded as a considerable loss for the voices of sanity and goodwill.  In spite of the schoolyard bickering of Mayor Bud Koch  and Chairman Jim Gurney, Kolibas consistently tried to  improve communications and co-operation between the  two governing bodies, only to be thwarted by a brick wall  constructed of Koch's antagonism toward the SCRD and  its chairman.  Jim Gurney has withdrawn from the position of SCRD  chairman where he and Koch inevitably locked horns.  If Mayor Koch will now direct more of his energy into  working for Sechelt and less into frustrating the regional  district board, the Sunshine Coast might get out of the  pages of Victoria's joke book and take its place as a lobbying force to be reckoned with.  Koch will now appoint someone else to represent Sechelt  on the regional board. If he chooses someone who accurately reflects his own attitude, all co-operative effort  will be effectively blocked. If he chooses to appoint  another person who is naive enough to believe that personal differences can be put aside for the betterment of the  community, that person will run into the same frustrating  obstacles that Mrs. Kolibas was forced to face.  The ball is now in Koch's court. Whomever he appoints  to the regional district board, the calm, experienced voice  of sanity that was Joyce Kolibas will be missed.  Congratulations,  Jim Gurney  We applaud without hesitation Jim Gurney's decision  not to allow himself to be considered for the role of chairman for the Sunshine Coast Regional Board in the coming  year.  Gurney, we feel, hits the nail right on the head when he  observes that the politics on the Coast have become too  personalized and therefore counterproductive. His own acceptance of a lower profile role will give the re-constituted  regional board an opportunity to address its agenda with  the overburden of past disputes minimized.  We congratulate Gurney on this decision. His astuteness  and experience are still available to the board and a considerable contribution can still be expected from him.  5 YEARS AGO  Canada's anonymous champion, Dave Steen, visited  the Sunshine Coast last weekend. Steen received the  gold medal in the decathalon event at the recent Commonwealth Games.  The Village of Sechelt has been given 160 acres of  Crown Land by the provincial government for a community park. It is located within the village boundaries at the  west end of Harbour Way and Ripple Way and is worth  approximately $320,000.  Volunteer Firemen answered what may be their last  call to the Sechelt Fire Hall as they rushed to Choquer &  Sons in East Porpoise Bay to find an engine fire had been  extinguished. Firemen will be working out of the new hall  at Trail Avenue beginning this week.  10 YEARS AGO  Ken's Lucky Dollar owner Bill Edney was lavish in his  praise of the Gibsons Volunteer Firemen after a fire  started in his warehouse behind the produce counter.  "Another few minutes and the whole thing might have  gone up," said Edney.  15 YEARS AGO  Elphinstone Secondary Senior Boys Basketball team  wins the First Annual Princeton Invitational Basketball  Tourney.  20 YEARS AGO  Fred Feeney has announced he will seek election as  Chairman of the Gibsons Council with present Chairman  Wes Hodgson seeking re-election. It is reported Gerry  Dixon may seek election as councillor and Jim Drum-  mond will seek re-election.  25 YEARS AGO  Canadian Forest Products, Howe Sound Pulp Division,  will hold open house to mark the completion of the over  $15,000,000 expansion program undertaken at the Port  Mellon mill in recent months.  30 YEARS AGO  Three new hydro-electric generating stations will be officially added to the B.C. Electric system. The three stations, totalling 260,000 horsepower, are the Cheakamus,  Clowhom and LaJoie generating stations.  35 YEARS AGO  James Sinclair, Minister of Fisheries, announces the  early construction of the Sakinaw Dam.  40 YEARS AGO  Beverly Burley, daughter of Mr. & Mrs. Norman Burley  of Sechelt, is crowned Queen of the Fall Ball at UBC.

It was typical of the man that  the selections he chose to read  on the occasion of his appearance in Sechelt were warm,  witty and wise and entirely  without the shadow of his own  illness.  It was typical, also, of this  spiritual giant from a small  Albertan town that a portion of  his reading went to delineate the  problems of the less fortunate  portion of mankind that inhabits what we have become  comfortable referring to as the  Third World.  It was perhaps typical, tody;'.���;  that George Ryga, who may L  have been the most important  writer working in Canada in the  past 25 years and not without  possibility in this century, was  not accorded the spotlight position in this rural festival of and  for writers. Instead, the  headline attraction was Alan  Fotheringham, a wise-cracking  chronicler of the doings of the  powerful and the famous, a  man that literary historians will  assuredly judge unworthy of the  task of carrying George Ryga's  typewriter ribbons.  In all truth the Canadian  literary establishment was  always uneasy with George  Ryga and, because of that  uneasiness, treated him  abominably.  Ryga rocketed to prominence  with his passionately compassionate play The Ecstasy of Rita  Joe which was so overwhelmingly successful that for a brief  season Ryga was a Canadian  literary lion.  His next play of note Captives of a Faceless Drummer  dealt with the FLQ crisis in  Quebec and Ryga's was not the  safe and predictable view of the  Canadian establishment. In  common with other Canadians  of thoughtful vision he was  deeply troubled by the War  Measures Act enacted by  Prime Minister Trudeau which  took away fundamental human  rights from a nation to  counteract the activities of a  handful of terrorists.  His treatment of the subject  earned him the ire of the literary  establishment and no major  performances of his work took  place until, in the summer of  1986, in desperate need of a major Canadian play to showcase  for the visitors to Expo '36, the  Vancouver Playhouse begged to  be allowed to stage Ryga's searching dramatic analysis of  medical ethics,  Paracelsus.  It  was a last-minute stop-gap after  another Canadian writer had  failed to meet an obligation.  For a brief season, it was  limousine service and an apartment in Vancouver for the quiet  man from the Okanagan. But  the production was hurried and  unworthy of the stature of its  subject and the drama critics  savaged the writer.  I predict that this is a play  that will yet be staged to overwhelming critical acceptance. In  Ryga's lifetime, however, it  received just this one hasty, botched production and was  savagely damned.  The summer of 1985 saw  Fran and I visit the Rygas in  Summerland. I was at the time  hoping to be about to direct one  GEORGE RYGA  of his plays and wangled an invitation to visit, along with  Peter Trower, whose work  Ryga admired.  We found a small enclave of  houses in Summerland which  seemed plugged into a stream of  unending hospitality. In our  brief time with Ryga and his  blind wife Norma we saw many  young people come through to  be fed spiritually and bodily and  housed briefly by the  playwright.  The main house had been  built especially to facilitate Nor-  ma's work. She had gone blind  some years before, and we were  in her presence for almost an  hour before I was sure that pur  hostess couldn't see.  The warmth of and grace of  our welcome stays with me. I  found a quiet and powerful intelligence in the writer, I found  conviction of gentle power.  Here was a man who had looked full in the face of human folly and was yet a humanist, who  knew well of the misery and the  stupidity and the greed of our  species, and yet was gently adamant in his hope.  One afternoon we went out  to Ryga's favourite Greek  restaurant and were joined by  other literary notables of the  area. The high regard in which  the playwright was held by  those who knew him and the  tender caring he constantly  showed his wife when she was  away from her familiar surroundings, spoke volumes for  the man's intrinsic worth.  He was full of hopes and projects, alive with things to do as  yet undone. He left us poetry,  novels, and drama of sensitive  power and decency. The report  of his untimely death at age 55  last week, saddened thousands  of his acquaintances and impoverished the Canadian  literary scene more than it  knows.  Maryanne's Viewpoint  Mixed feelings for provincial bird  by Maryanne West  So the Steller's Jay is our  choice for B.C.'s official bird. I  wonder what that says about  us?! It's certainly a good choice  in one way. It's a spectacular  bird with jaunty black crest,  black body, and those startling-  ly blue wings, rump and tail;  easily recognizable and impossible to confuse with any other  B.C. bird. It may look  somewhat dowdy and bedraggled in the rain, but there can be  few sights more rewarding than  a flight of Steller's Jays against  a backdrop of snow covered  firs, or in Indian summer  among the golden maple leaves.  I can remember as though it  were yesterday seeing my first  Steller's Jay in Port Mellon  soon after we arrived in Canada  in 1951, that electric blue took  one's breath away. England's  azure blue kingfisher might be  comparable in its breathtaking  beauty, maybe even more  rememberable because to catch  a glimpse of one may be a once  in a lifetime thrill, but this exotic Western Canadian bird is a  backyard winter visitor.  It must have been something  to do with that first Steller's Jay  when I went to Vancouver on a  shopping spree to buy clothes  for myself I came home without  the new dress but with  Taverner's Birds of Canada.  But that's as far as it goes!  They're undoubtedly bright and  intelligent and oh, so persistent  -but they're a positive nuisance  at the bird feeders. Last year  was a good one for jays and a  friend had no less than eight  regularly visiting her feeders  and successfully frightening  away all the smaller birds. How  can you feed four pairs of jays  when one can empty my sunflower seed silo in a single day?  They have insatiable ap-  petities and the habit of squirrelling away anything they don't  happen to fancy at the moment.  Put briefly, their manners are  appalling.  In my experience the only  bird able to ignore the determination of Steller's Jays at the  feeder is the Flicker, who just  keeps its head down slurping up  oats which adhere to its sticky  tongue.  Did you go to pick your apples last month, left on the trees  because summer didn't seem to  be over? Chances are, that if  you ignored those triumphant  squawks which announced the  return to the garden of the  Steller's Jay, most of the best  fruit was nothing more than a  rosy shell hanging from the  branch, all the flesh neatly  pecked out.  The robber was most likely a  Steller's Jay, (crows usually  manage to knock the apples off)  and they also go off with  filberts and other nuts before  they are properly ripe.  As they are omnivorous, they  eat some grubs and insects but  probably not enough to balance  the damage they do to crops,  grain, fruit and nuts, to say  nothing of their liking for eggs  and baby song birds in the spr  ing, birds which are wholly  beneficial, feeding on those insects and aphids which infest  our gardens.  Mentioning song birds brings  to mind another minus for the  jay, it's noisy and raucous, and  has an irritating habit of  screeching at you as you go  about your legitimate business.  It does however redeem itself  somewhat in the spring when it  croons to its mate.  Maybe we are too easily impressed by window dressing, the  flashy, eye catching appearance,  or maybe we admire the brash,  pushy entrepreneur, the charming rogue who's robbing us  blind and we are willing to  overtook those not so nice  habits? Maybe we just  shouldn't look for any social  meaning in our choice of the  Steller's Jay!  But official status or not, I  shall continue to keep them on  my persona-non-grata list, with  crows and starlings.  I'll feed them only in really  bad weather. Coast News, November 23,1987  Editor:  I would like to urge you and  your readers, whether they are  for or against privatization, to  write their MLA to stop this war  before it gets too far along.  Privatization may be the biggest political step this province  will make this century. Please  let's learn the pros and cons and  let our leaders know how we  feel and let the world know we  can handle political happenings  like this without declaring war  amongst ourselves.  John Hedderson  Thanks  Editor:  I would like to thank all those  who gave up a Sunday afternoon to both give and get information on proposed By-law  304. As members of a community we have an obligation to  be aware of what is going on.  To this end we elect regional  directors in the hope that they  will keep us informed and represent our views to the SCRD and  other government agencies.  A problem arises however  when those we expect to champion the causes of the public  become too involved in their  own causes. Jim Gurney,  Regional Director of Area E,  keeps telling us we are misinformed and don't understand  what he and other members of  the SCRD are trying to do.  A good deal of the blame  must rest on Mr. Gurney's  shoulders for not making sure  that we, as his constituents, are  kept fully appraised of the activities and plans of the SCRD.  If this means better advertising  of up-coming public hearings or  additional public hearings, Mr.  Gurney and the other regional  directors have an obligation to  us to hold those meetings and  place those advertisements.  Once again, thank you to all  those who gave up their own  time to make sure information  was given out arid understood  by those on the receiving end.  Sara Brown  Voting  Editor:  As I write this letter, the day  before our Municipal election, I  obviously have no way of  knowing whether I will be successful in my bid for a seat on  Sechelt Council. However, I  would like to take this opportunity to thank those who have  supported me during the campaign and to give a pat on the  back to those who took the time  to vote on Saturday, whether it  was for me or not.  All over the world people are  fighting for the opportunity to  live in a democracy and to vote  for candidates of their choice.  In Canada, so many of us take  that right for granted and fail to  appreciate that freedom of  choice.  To those of you who did not  exercise your franchise because  you forgot, or just didn't have  the time, I would ask that you  remember the old adage 'you  get the government you vote  for' especially when you complain or express dissatisfaction  with your newly elected  representatives. You were given  the chance to express your views  at the polls but just didn't care  enough to take the time.  Remember some people are  dying for the right that you so  blithely threw away. Especially  remember that when the polls,  open once again next year. It's  what democracy is all about.

An amended third reading  was given to the West Howe  Sound Official Community  Plan By-law 304 at last Thursday's meeting of the regional  board. The amendment 'simply  clarifies the meaning' Chairman  Jim Gurney told the meeting.  Having consulted with lawyers,  he assured the board that a second public hearing would not  be required to incorporate the  amendment.  The amendment addresses  some of the concerns that were  raised at a public information  meeting, held last week, about  park dedication along Gibson  Creek.  The by-law will now read,  "For that part of Gibson Creek  located in the Agricultural Land  Reserve (ALR) and designated  'Future Public Use or Recreation Use or Both', these uses  shall not be encouraged or pursued until such time as an exclusion, at the application of  respective property owners,  from the ALR occurs, and the  properties are re-zoned for non-  agricultural purposes."  Area F residents were clearly  divided during the information  meeting held at Granthams Hall  where Geoff Powers and Judy  Skogstadt of the SCRD Planning Department tried to explain  the necessity of having a zoning  plan designating future land  uses well in advance of development.  The three sides taken, could  be interpreted to be: no plan,  accept this plan because it's better than no plan, and clearer information is needed before accepting any plan.  Patricia Cook and Sarah  Brown, who live alongside Gibson Creek, see a park-use land  designation running the length  of the creek's ALR area as being a way for the regional  district to inhibit what they may  wish to do with their land under  its current ALR zoning.  Powers explained that the  section of the plan which concerned them was not controlling  or annexing property for the  purposes of installing a park,  but a clause aimed at landowners who apply to subdivide  or develop their land outside the  zoning plan existing in ALR.  When the application is  granted, the landowner would  have ''to give five percent of  their land to park area instead  of giving five percent payment  to the government for developing or subdividing more than  four parcels of land."  What Brown objects to is the  restricions placed upon her land  by designating a piece of it to be  used as park space in the future.  "I see the plan giving the  regional district discretionary  measures," she said, because  under the current ALR she  works with a building inspector  to determine the safety of pro-  Area F representative Gary Gray was part of a regional district information panel answering questions from an audience of over forty people at Granthams Hall on November 15.   ���Joel Johnstone photo  tf  THANK YOU to the following people and  organizations for making the Charlotte Diamond  concert a great success.

The clause  within By-law 304 would mean  her developments would have to  be cleared through the SCRD, a  political body.  The five percent land act is  what worried Patricia Cook.  Thirty percent of her land is adjacent to the creek and she can't  understand how five percent of  land can constitute a strip of  park space running through her  property when she reads into  the by-law that the park would  require 15 metres of right of  way on either side of the creek's  high water line. "That would  take up more than five percent  of mine and other people's  lands along the creek."  At present, Gibson Creek is  in the ALR which restricts subdivisions and/or non-farm uses  without a direct application by  the regional district to the provincial government. As far as  some creek people are concerned the land is zoned already and  protected from commercial  development.  Eric Cardinall of Area F  agreed with Powers that there  should be a concrete development plan within the West  Howe Sound Official Community Plan for the whole area.  But Cook and Brown believe  the plan has not been presented  in a clear manner to the people  it affects.  Though Powers and Skog-  stad were on hand for that very  purpose, the inability of ordinary people to digest the  legalese of the document, and  the impact it would have on  them personally, led to confrontational speaking in circles,  clearly frustating everyone present.  Appointed area representatives Tony Laver and Gary  Gray, who chaired the meeting,  said they would take the concerns they had heard to the  regional directors they represent.  He recommended that they  allow passage of the by-law and  then correct matters on an individual basis, instead of attempting to block passage of a  plan for the whole area, because  of a few specifics which can be  worked out.  In the meantime, residents  have also brought their concerns to the attention of  Department of Municipal Affairs Development Services  Planner B.Jawanda, who will  be coming November 26 to see  the creek area and talk to  residents along the strip.  Museum  meeting  The Elphinstone Pioneer  Museum Society held its 22nd  annual general meeting  November 17, 1987.  Thomas Johnson, President  was returned to the position by  acclamation. Nora Hill was  voted in as Vice-President, and  Jennifer Hopkins as Secretary,  Joan Graham was elected  Treasurer and Robert Woods as  Membership Director.  The direction of the museum  in the past year was discussed  and Frank Wyngaert reminisced  about the early years of the  museum. All members marvelled on how far along the  museum has progressed.

In a letter to council received  at last week's council meeting,  accepting his position on the  :ommittee, Regional Director  Jim Gurney made references to  the effect that the committee  may not have true autonomy  with regards to its directives, or  be expected to bear responsibility for the results of the study, if  it cannot have input towards  which a consultant prepares the  study.  Gurney stated in his letter,  "It would seem to me that one  of the most important tasks for  the committee would be to set  the direction and agenda for  this study. I submit that the  committee can hardly be expected to accept responsibility  for the accuracy and validity of  the study without that authority. Likewise the committee  should not be expected to accept  the neutrality of a study from a  consultant that it has not had  some responsibility for selecting."  Alderman Norm Peterson interpreted the letter's intent as  "it seems as if they want to pick  their own."  Committee Chairman Jane  Sorko disagreed with Gurney.  To the Citizens of Gibsons  I'd like to thank all those who gave me such  tremendous support during my successful campaign for re-election as Mayor. ! will honour the  pledges to which I have committed myself on  behalf of the community. I know that council  will act as a team to resolve our problems, bearing in mind the constraints which exist. With  goodwill and hard work I am sure we shall succeed.  Thank You  Diane Strom  <S*******S> <5^4fc^2> <X^4**��J> ��-^4***f> i  In an interview with the Coast  News she stated "it was council  as a body who went out and  hammered down the grant  money and then put together a  committee structure. I personally believe council is quite within  their rights to choose what consultant they want to work  with."  Peterson said Gurney may  "not want the public to think  we're hiring a consultant who is  pro-restructuring.''  The firm wrote the preliminary study for Sechelt prior to  its incorporation as a district,  has prepared reports for South  Cowichan, Woss, the Langford  Electoral Area, the Village of  Keremeos, Sointula, and is  working on a report for Ganges.  They have estimated their costs  for the Gibsons study to be  $8400.  Gurney told the Coast News  that he is not confident of the  chosen firm because of results  he perceived during their work  for Sechelt and would rather see  council direct the firm to do a  smaller study first rather than  have a full blown report.  "I just don't have any confidence in former ministerial  staff", whom he said, he  "doesn't perceive as being unbiased."  In an interview Tom Moore  maintained "That doesn't make  me pro anything. As a matter of  fact, we work on the facts not  Please turn to page 25  At last week's meeting of the  Public Utilities Committee of  the Sunshine Coast Regional  District Agris Berzins of Dayton  and Knight Engineering presented a preliminary report on  the regional water system. This  follows a year of weekly testing  of water quality.  Berzins told the committee  that in testing for turbidity, they  had found that 70 percent of the  time the water meets the standards recommended by Health  and Welfare Canada. However,  the number of particles in the  water increased with rain and  runoff.  Regarding water colour, Berzins said that although discolouration is esthetically  displeasing, it presents no health  hazard, and is caused by colour  in the ground around water  reservoirs.  However, both the turbidity  and colour could be improved if  the district proceeds with the  consultant's recommendation  to increase water storage capacity for the system.  The report states that the existing storage at Chapman Lake  of 150 million gallons had been  used to capacity during the late  summers of both 1986 and  1987. They recommended that  water reserves be increased by  using Edward's Lake to store a  further 190 million gallons and  increasing the amount stored in  Chapman Lake.  By incorporating a second,  larger reservoir, the committee  was told, capacity could be raised to six million gallons per day  and as a bonus, the water would  also be much clearer, having  had added settling time.

The meeting led off with a  short social hour accompanied  with an ample serving of coffee  and strawberry shortcake with  lots of whipped cream,  prepared and served by the  ladies of the Mth Sunshine  Coast Baden Powell Guild.  A snappy business meeting  was chaired by the District  President Bob Kinley, receiving  excellent reports from each of  the Scout groups of the Coast  including Gibsons, Sechelt,  West Sechelt, Halfmoon Bay  and.Pender Harbour. Reports  of Council Committees were  read and future events announced.  Again this year the Scout  family held a Hikathon in April  and donated $860 of the proceeds to purchase needed equipment for St. Mary's Hospital  for the benefit of the whole  community.  Thanks were expressed to  both our local papers and to  others for their continued support.  At the election of officers and  members of council for 1987-88  the following were elected:  Past President, Walter Dennis; President, Bob Kinley;  Secretary, Stephanie Ryan;  Treasurer, Andrew Hopkinson;  Members, Bob Adams, Victor  Bonaguro, Tom Collins, Jorgen  Christiansen, Ken Easterbrook,  Wayne Lowrey, Bill McKee,  Olivia Seal and Cliff Stone. Len  Mitchell was appointed  Auditor.  A highlight of the meeting  was the presentation of a letter  from the Chief Scout of  Canada, Governor-General  Jeanne Sauve of the award to  Olivia Seal, of the Bar to the  Silver Acorn, for her continued  'Especially Distinguished Service' to Scouting over more  than 55 years in many  capacities.  Followed by awards for loyal  and faithful service of a 10 Year  Medal to Victor Bonaguro and  of 5 year pins to Bev Dall, Linda Curtiss, Larry Curtiss,  Walter Dennis, Bill McKee and  Stephanie Ryan.  A fine talk and slide presentation was given by Past Regional  Commissioner Jim Stout about  a hiking trip taken by Scouts  along the old Hudson Bay Trail  from Hope to Tulameen, near  Princeton, which was much enjoyed.  by George Cooper, 886-8520  Returning to the Sunshine*  Coast after last residing here in  1962-68 is Arthur Willis who  will serve as interim pastor of  Calvary Baptist on Park Road.  During his previous stay here  Arthur Willis was custodian and  dean of camping on Keats  Island. "Really I was the camp  caretaker," Mr. Willis explained, "and I also served as pastor  of Calvary Baptist in Gibsons  and Bethel in Sechelt."  Arthur Willis served after  that in two parishes on Prince  Edward Island, first at North  River near Charlottetown and  then at East Point.  In 1976 he retired to the West  Coast, "from one side of the  country to the other" to be near  his children, and has since been  busy filling in as pastor of churches on Vancouver Island and  one in Calgary. "Gibsons is my  10th interim post since my  retirement in 1976."  Arthur remembers the moving of the former United  Church building from its site in  the present Pioneer Park to the  church site on Park Road back  in the 60's. "We discovered the  building was in three parts constructed at different times, but  the movers got it to the new site  on Park Road intact. Quite a  wondrous event for the quiet  village of the time.^'  Arthur Willis grew up in'  England. "Preached my first  sermon when I was 16." Where  was that? "At Speakers Corner  in Hyde Park. By the way, this  year is the 60th anniversary of  that event."  During World War II he was  chaplain in a mission in  Freetown, Sierra Leone from  1942 to 1944, a mission that  cared for shipwrecked sailors.  "Ten thousand merchant seamen passed through our mission  in 23 months. We helped to  clothe and feed them and give  what spiritual comfort we  could."  In 1944 he and his family  came to Winnipeg and Portage  la Prairie, and then in the 1950's  to Vernon and Vancouver  Island. "I'm still a member of  the church in Port Alberni.'^ ���'  Arthur Willis says that the  only time he attended a  theology school was a brief session as a teacher. "I can use the  letters QBE after my name,  Qualified By Experience." And  he added, "A merchant seaman  would say I came up the 'hause  pipe', that is up through the  ratings.  "The first church I served in  was one of the oldest nonconformist churches in Britain.

Margaret Humm of Marlee's  Laclies Fashions presented a  fantastic array of fashions,  Morgan Thompson's Morgan's  Men's Wear fashions went well  with her selections.  The hairdressers at Super-  shape did marvellous hairstyles,  donating their time as did the  make-up ladies Nell Jaeger and  Joy' Smith. Hairdresser Wendy  Warman was backstage touch  ing up make-up and hair during  the show.  Mistress of Ceremonies was  Nikki  Weber of Strings and  Things.  The entertainment was  hilarious as well as enjoyable  with skits, singers and dancers.  The auxiliary members served  refreshments looking very  smart, dressed in black skirts,  white blouses with red bows.  The many men who came forth  to assist the ladies, moving furniture, etc., made the work that  much lighter.  It was gratifying to see the list  of providers of door prizes and  other groups and people who  helped.  A lot of work but a lot of fun  too, and the contribution of  close to $1200 to the hospital  will aid in the comfort of the patients at St. Mary's Hospital.  The committee was headed by  Vivien Tepoorten and Betty  Laidlaw generated a lot of  energy and enthusiasm which  evidently results in a lot of help.

Our  new slate of officers for 1988  has been elected and will be installed at our December General  Meeting. Our bazaar will be  history by the end of this week.  Our semi-classical concert has  come and gone! Our Christmas  dinner is just over two weeks  away!  Our branch, as you can see,  has been a very active group this  fall, and will continue to be until year end.  To elaborate a little more fully on the above, our elected  slate of officers for 1988 will be  as follows:  President, Mike Timms; First  Vice-President, John Miller; Second Vice-President, Rita  Stansfield; Secretary, Betty  Calli; Treasurer, John Johnson;  Directors, Beth Niddery, Bernie  Ackerman, Mickey Cornwell,  Tillie White and Ted Farewell.  There are still tickets  available for the Branch  Christmas Dinner at the Sechelt  Legion on December 10. Past  dinners have proven to be a very  popular get-together. If you  have planned on attending, this  little reminder may save you a  disappointment should the  allotted tickets have been  previously sold. Remember!  The number of tickets is  limited. They are available by  phoning either Olive Marshall  at 885-9904 or Joan Timms at  885-9249 for your reservation.  CHRISTMAS BAZAAR  Preparation is now well in  hand for this popular fall fund  raiser. As mentioned in last  week's column, our committees  are still in need of mystery  packages and, of course, cann  ed goods for the hampers that  have always been a very  necessary part of our bazaars.  This year there is a very good  selection of items available. Our  dedicated Thursday morning  craft group has been busy pricing during the last couple of sessions.  For those of our members  who have items to bring in, it  would certainly simplify the  duties of these people if you  would simply put a price on  each item you are donating.  With the knowledge of the  amount of work and material  that has gone into your donation, you are in a much better  position to do the pricing.  SATURDAY BRIDGE  Due to the bazaar, our Saturday, November 28 session has  been cancelled. Next bridge will  be held on the second Saturday  in December, the 12th.  BULLETIN  Some advertising signs have  been posted for our November  28 Christmas Bazaar with an  opening time of 1 pm. Please  note - starting time will be 1:30  pm. Repeat 1:30 pm.

The Ladies' Tea and Silent  Auction last Saturday, the first  attempt at this kind of fund-  raising by the Society, was successful beyond anyone's expectations, and another is planned  that will include the men.  Auction items were all  donated, some from non-  members, and the bidding ranged from crafty to manic. This  was possibly the only event  where a load of manure from a  politician was appreciated. In  fact, it was auctioned for $50.  The ladies of the Society  prepared a delicious assortment  of quiches, salads and pastries,  and the organizers would like to  thank IGA and the Oak Tree  Market for their donations of  food.  If you're a Music Society  member, you'll receive your  first newsletter, probably this  week. Lynne Munro has produced it by computer to the  print-ready stage and hopes to  continue publishing it quarter-  annually.

Norman felt that the tone of  the service was completely  Canadian - dignified and  unassuming with not too much  of the military aspect, but a  humble and grateful dedication  to the memory of those who  had made the supreme sacrifice.  It made Norman feel proud to  be a Canadian, and so say all of  us.  DOG CONTROL  I hope that you all  remembered to get out and vote  on the matter of dog control.  Recently there has been a lot of  cause for complaint and alarm  with dogs in Redrooffs. One  doesn't blame the dog - it's the  owners who neglect the animal  by not keeping track of where  the dog is wandering, and when  ^ -it" comes to people having to  carry a stick when out for a  walk it's just too much.  I don't know who the owner  is a batch of puppies in  Redrooffs but I, for one, have  had to jam on the brakes to  avoid these pups running loose  on the road.

Young then assured Reardon  "if they're members of our  local, we'll straighten them  out." It's a similar situation  with Gramma's Pub, Kerry  Eldred said. Their patrons are  not all of the problem but are  part of it, parking on the ramp  when their available parking is  taken up by either patrons of  the pub or shoppers in the  downtown area.

Those patrons of Gramma's  Pub and the downtown area  who are also party to parking  on the ramp could, in the near  future, be ticketed and towed,  Berscheid said.  But the town doesn't have a  proper impound lot for towed  vehicles which would mean the  Coast Guard would have to  bear the expense of towing  vehicles to Vancouver.  "We could bring the hammer  down hard one time only and  see if that has an affect."  Corporal Wilhelms supports  "towing a few vehicles away to  get the message across. If it's  only a small minority then let's  get after it and get it  happening."  But before the tow trucks  roll, Barratt wants to meet with  those not complying with the  parking. His department is going to send out invitations to  those they know, asking them to  attend a special meeting,this  week where they can voice their  side of the story.  And the consensus of the:  meeting was that no one really  wants to see the ramp closed to  traffic.  But Harbours and Ports sees  it as a simple solution compared  to trying to investigate and lay  charges against people interfering with Reardon's authority on  the wharf. Under the Federal  Harbours Act, Section 31,  Subsection 2, persons contravening an order by a wharf  manager can be fined up to  $1000. The act also grants him,  the authority to clear the wharf  of any vehicles in contravenance  of regulations.  Currently the Gibsons Wharf  is zoned industrial; allows parking on the deck for loading and  unloading purposes only; or  commercial vehicles directly  related to work ongoing on the  dock or a vessel, and vehicles  left on the ramp are allowed for  temporary wharf related purposes only.

Take a 12" round cake pan, line the  tin, sides and base, with a double layer of waxed paper. Line the  outside of the tin with a double layer of brown paper (as in grocery  bag!). Secure with twine or masking tape. Cut a 12" diameter circle of brown paper and brush lightly with oil. Set aside.  To make the cake:  1. Cream until soft and fluffy 11A cups butter, 1 cup packed brown  sugar.  2. Beat 4 eggs.  3. Sift 2 cups flour, Vi teaspoon salt, 1A teaspoon mixed spice and  Va teaspoon grated nutmeg.  4. Add flour and eggs alternately to butter and sugar.  5. Add 1 cup coarsely chopped blanched almonds.  6. Add soaked currants, etc. and stir in thoroughly.  7. Place carefully and evenly in pan. To ensure an evenly flat surface poke a slight indentation in the top of the cake with the back  of a spoon.  Cover your cake with the oiled circle of brown paper and bake at  325��F. for 1 hour. Turn the heat down to 300��F. and bake for a  further 1 to 11/2 hours until an inserted toothpick comes out  clean. For the last half hour or so of cooking remove the circle of  brown paper, it's there to stop your currants etc. from burning.  9. Let the cake cool in your pan for at least 30 minutes before turning out. When quite cool wrap in foil and keep in a cool place.  If you're having a drink, give your cake one too just make a few  holes in the cake with a large needle or toothpick and pour a few  dregs onto the cake then wrap again. Cakes don't care if it's brandy  or sherry or whatever!  File carefully, you guys!  NEST LEWIS  8  r I tfeiri by Itei^  nr 14.  Coast News, November 23,1987  '\naiiiii  J  Duo Guardabarranco, Nicaragua's best known 'folk' musicians,  will be appearing with Salvador Bustos, another of Nicaragua's  finest singer/songwriters, at the Arts Centre on Thursday,  November 26 at 7:30 pm. This event is sponsored by the Central  American Support Committee and proceeds go to Tools for Peace.  At The Arts Centre  Author visits  by Ken Collins  "I did about 10 years of living in three," author Sandra  Birdsell told an attentive audience of 40 people at the Arts  Centre last Friday evening. She  was explaining that many of her  readers believe her fiction to be  autobiographical and her first,  reading of the evening was a  graphic example of that  phenomenon.  It was a prairie girl falling-in-  love story powerfully written in  the first person and it was obvious that her audience,  whether male or female, was  pulled completely into her  adventures as the barely past  puberty heroine is abandoned  by her equally immature and irresponsible boyfriend. All he  left behind was a shirt which she  is wearing and a rabbit which  she has in a shoebox punched  full of holes.  She shamefully has to make  her own way back to her  parents by bus and as she does  so she relates the anger and grief  that well up when she  remembers the intimate details  of her love. What is so captivating about Birdsell is the  manner in which she is able to  communicate the secret little  things that we all have go  through our heads but never  ever tell anyone. She is 45 now  and says that her memories of  the 50's is not like the movies  depict it.  "They show it through rose-  coloured glasses," she said in an  interview with the Coast News.  Her earlier years were painful.  They were, years of self-  discovery and growth and not  unlike the Greenwich Village  storybook artist story. She left  shool at 15 and briefly returned  at 17 but then married. School  for her in those days was a  blackboard  jungle.  The  only  liberation was escape, and  writing was one of the means.  She would, like many struggling  youth of that era, pour her  heart out in poetry.  Eventually, she did return to  school and now has a position  as Writer in Residence at the  University of Waterloo. "I'm a  respectable middle-aged woman  now," she jokes, but it is improbable that she was ever  anything other than respectable.  What she does appear to have is  a fearless curiosity that won't  stop. One of her still unpublished novels is from the perspective  of a child batterer. "The  publishers wanted it "ffoni the'  victim's point of view," she  said, and quickly added, "but  that would have been too easy."  Her works are available locally and if she ever returns she  should not be missed.  Crafts at  Capilano  Attention all craftspeople!!

Pages From A^ Life-Log  Ghost Town Circuit  by Peter Trower  Our route lies  south now,  down the steep eastern shore of  Lake Slocan. We don't bother  stopping at the town of Silver-  ton,   three  miles  below  New  Denver. Barlee's Bible assures  us that it is almost totally devoid  of clues to its historical origins.  The highway begins to climb.  Finally, we arrive at a giddy  lookout  point.   Someone  has  stolen the plaque but it must be  at least 2,000 feet above Lake  Slocan. The cliff drops away  like   the   world's   edge   to   a  faraway   twinkle   of   water.  Cautious  as  always  of such  heights, I stand a bit back from  the guard rail. The view is aggressively breathtaking.  Lake Slocan stretches away  like stropped silver. You can  almost imagine sternwheelers  plying its length, full of money-  hungry miners. The farther  shore looks just as pristine as it  must have in those days, except  for a couple of lonely white  buildings like flyspecks against  the green. Above them, the  wooded slopes climb, unbroken  by logging scars, to the fierce  beauty of the Valhallas. They  rise gleaming against the slanting phalanxes, flaunting late  snow on their upper reaches. On  this day, from this vantage  point, they look fit for Gods.  We return to the car and  wheel on. Sandi comments that  she wouldn't want to drive this  road at night. We find out why  a few miles later when the  highway narrows suddenly to a  single lane, with the dropoff on  one side, cliffs on the other and  God knows what around the  corner. Fortunately, this stretch  is of fairly brief duration.  The highway starts to des- -���  cend. Soon we are only a hundred feet above lake level and  homing in on the town of  Slocan City, another cradle of  memories. Unlike the other  towns we have visited, Slocan  City boasts a local industry in  the form of a large sawmill. The  town hunkers behind it in the  flat bay-mouth.  Yvonne turns off here and we  drive   through   the   tree-lined  streets. You can smell the past  here  all  right.   Some  of the y  houses are very old.and several^ J^  of  the   commercial   buildings,  have obviously had long and  chequered careers. But there is  nothing that really grabs us  enough to warrant a closer  look. It's getting late and I suppose we're becoming a trifle  powered-out from history, at  least for today.  The rest of the drive is  uneventful. We hit the northbound highway and circle back  into Nelson again, having completed the Ghost Town Circuit.  Soon we are back at Sandi's  place, sipping Fuzzy Navels (a  potent ambrosia of orange juice  and peach schnapps) and  hashing over the memorable  day. Yvonne and I wind down  with a scrabble game in which  she racks up a nearly impossible  294 points on a single play with  the word 'pretzels'.  Now it's Monday. The weather has turned around. A chilly  wind is plucking whitecaps on  the lake and dark,damp looking  clouds are sidling up from the  south. I don't feel especially  ambitious but Sandi wants to  take us to a lookout point called  Pulpit Rock for a really good  bird's eye view of Nelson. It is a  fairly stiff climb but she assures  us the view is well worth it.  When we get a look at the access road, however, we realize  that we are not going to be doing any running. It is a steep,  rutty track, only a four by four  could negotiate. We park the  car at the bottom and start up.  Somehow, we miss the mouth  of the Pulpit Rock Trail. By the  time we ascertain this, we have  gone too far beyond it to turn  back. I can already feel the odd  drop of rain. We pant on up the  rough road to a secondary viewpoint and elect to settle for this.  Nelson, its largest buildings  reduced to toy-railway size from  this lofty perspective, lies flung  across the farther slope in a  gridwork of streets. Despite the  overcast weather, it still looks  like the sort of place you could  quite comfortably call home.  There is a sawmill on the town's  northern fringes but it has apparently not operated for some  years. To the south of Nelson,  another highway meanders off  up a narrow valley. It leads  eventually   to   Creston   and  passes through other old mining  towns such as Ymir, which we  $will not have time to visit on this  '  particular trip.

Ken Dalgleish was this year's  recipient of the Gillian Lowndes  Award at a reception in the Arts  Centre on November 21. This  1 award, given annually for ex-  I cellence in the arts, was  | presented in previous years to  '<$ artists of various disciplines;  | painting, writing, sculpture and  I theatre. This year's award is a  | first for music.  || Mr. Dalgleish was one of ten  | nominees proposed to the selec-  | tion committee. In their adjudication the committee  yj members were unanimous in  ;ji choosing him as the artist whose  J| talent, innovative growth and  ;j dedication to his art was the  most outstanding. As a per-  ;<j former, composer, teacher,  ;| choir director and accompanist,  ?fKen Dalgleish is well known on  the Sunshine Coast for the  leadership he has shown in his  field.  Gillian Lowndes was a young  dancer and an active arts promoter on the Sunshine Coast.

JO,  V  Where can you go on the Sunshine Coast when you  want to feed a crowd, but don't want to sell your children  into white slavery to do it? Pronto's Restaurant, in Gibsons and in Sechelt, of course.  Things were not looking good Saturday night with the  majority of the staff bleary-eyed and slouching over the  light tables. The situation demanded the gang go out for a  bit of a culinary refresher.  We wanted to make it a quick pizza run but that was not  to be. The restaurant was packed with customers, from a  large birthday celebration to numerous small parties, enjoying the fine fare. So we just sat down and relaxed,  something we needed to do anyway. Despite the numbers,  we were all served our coffee promptly and settled back to  scan the menu. Our intrest was in the pizza but that's not  all Pronto's is famous for. They've a varied menu of  steak, pastas, souvlaki, seafood, and even a children's  menu.  We started our meal by sharing a large Ceasar salad and  a Greek salad. Both were superb. All of the greens were  crispy and fresh. The dressing on the Ceasar salad was  perfect, and the Greek salad was smothered with a  generous supply of feta cheese, the all-around favourite  for us all.  After a satisfying pause, the pizzas were delivered.  Three steaming hot varieties. The Pronto's Special; a  shrimp, green pepper and double cheese; and finally, a  mushroom, pepperoni, black olive and onion combo. We  dug into all three with gusto. The result brought on a  chorus of oohs, ahhs and opinions on which was the best.  After much debate, we all agreed there was no telling. All  were finely spiced and equally satisfying.  After devouring all but two slices we settled back for a  final coffee and gathered our wits for the next three hours  of work we had ahead of us.  We would recommend Pronto's without hesitation to  any of you who are looking for a quiet dinner, or as a large  group. The restaurant is perfectly partitioned to accomodate both situations without interference from either  side. And...the price won't drive you into debt for the rest  of your life! Try it soon.

If you can  ihelp line fields give your name  ;to your son's or daughter's  coach.  i  Did you know that when the  soccer ball is on the sideline or  goal line it is still in play, it goes  out of play when the whole ball  goes out over either the sideline  or the goal line.  Another rule is at the start of  the game or after a goal is  scored when the ball is brought  to the centre line, the defending  team can't go in the ten yard circle until the team taking the  kick-off has put the ball in play  by kicking it. The ball has to  move forward when the first  person touches it. All players  have to be on their own side of  the field until the kick-off has  been taken.  8 & 9 YEAR OLDS  WL T P  Sechelt 1 (G.

Recruiter for the Canadian Armed Forces, Petty Officer 2nd Oass Wes F. Anthony, answers students'  questions at Chatelech High School Friday morning, (see story below). ���Ken Collins photo  Recruiting Centre visit  Students hear pitch  by Ken Collins  1  Last week a team from the  Canadian Armed Forces  Recruiting and Selection Centre  in Vancouver visited Sunshine  Coast high schools.  Their stated purpose was to  let students know what the requirements were should they  eventually choose to enlist. The  main body of their presentation  was a 25 minute video showing  the two sides of the military. It  can be 'rich and fulfilling or a  routine and a struggle' says the  narrator John Peter Walker.  He is shown along with his  buddy Jack enlisting and the  video follows them through  training.  Walker's attitude is good and  he does well but poor Jack has a  bit of a rough time of it until  finally he gets turned  around .Eventually he does and  it looks like he will succeed as  well.  "If you stick with them, the  Armed Forces will stick with  you," is the message.  The incentives are enticing.  Free Medical and dental, early  retirement, equal opportunities  for men and women, paid  university plus a salary in some  cases, and all the toys you ever  wanted to play with: tanks, jet  aircraft, and destroyers! And  fun too (with the right attitude).  The scene of a squad of  soldiers double-timing it down  the paved road could have been  a clip from Private Benjamin.  The video is over and it's  question time. "What can stop  you from being accepted," asks  one youth.  "The use of drugs is not  tolerated by the Armed  Forces," replies the recruiter.  "But we understand that people  make mistakes."  He is saying not to lie to  them. He explains the extent of  the security checks and says that  immediate relatives from communist countries could slow up  security clearances. He lets them  know the Armed Forces only1  want the best.  The session is over and it ends  with a reminder, "If you can't  make it into town we will take  your application over the  phone." They have a toll free  number.  Later in an interview with the  Coast News, the recruiter is asked to comment on the relationship of peace education and  Armed Forces recruiting. He  was straight forward and to the  point. "In the Armed Forces  you are a soldier first and a  tradesman second. If your  government or the Queen calls  on you to do something, you  are expected to comply."  Doris Fuller, one of the  leaders on the Sunshine Coast  for peace education, was asked  to comment. "I don't think it's  appropriate for them to be in  our schools," she stated, "after  all, they are teaching people  how to kill."  "Horsefeathers!" said one  army cadet officer, "It gives  them discipline. It's good for  them and some of them need  it."  Time is rapidly closing in on  the deadline for entries for the  Suncoast Writers' Forge writing  contest.  We would like to receive your  entries well before December 31  in order that they may be judged and ready for publication in  The Suncoaster magazine due to  be published in February.  All that is required is a piece  of unpublished fiction or non-  fiction with a maximum of 1200  words.  The contest is open to all  residents of the Sunshine Coast  and it would be just great if  school students submitted some  entries.  First prize is $100, second  $50, and third $25. You could  be a winner, or failing that you  may have your work published  in our magazine.  Contest rules may be picked  up at both book stores in  Sechelt or at Coast Bookstore in  Gibsons. They are also available  at the Coast News office in  Sechelt. For information you  can call Ruth Forrester at  885-2418 in the evening. This is  also the number to call if you  would like information about  the Suncoast Writers' Forge activities.  At the November meeting  there were more than 20 people  who learned a lot about punctuation from local writer Betty  Keller. It was a most enjoyable  event and our thanks to Betty  for having made it so interesting.  The December meeting will  not be a meeting! It will be a  Christmas party to which all  members are invited. Please bring a friend and enjoy a social  evening.

"I enjoyed being a part of the good things we  were able to do for the community. But the position is not  without costs," he added.  His remarks came as part of  the annual Chairman's Report  where Gurney outlined the accomplishments of the regional  board over the last year. But  after his formal report, he  spoke on a more personal note  about the negative aspects of  the position which accompany  the more pleasant parts.  He talked about the costs to  one's health as well as to  business concerns and a private  life, and announced, "I will not  allow my name to stand for  nomination for Chairman next  year."  He said the government  bodies had become personified.  When people think of local  governments, he said, they  think of Jim Gurney, Bud Koch  and Diane Strom, "and that's  not right."  He concluded by saying that  he looks forward to speaking  for the residents of Area E  unemcumbered by the chairman's role, and added, "Jim  Gurney is not backing off ot  winding down, I'm just serving  in a different way."  The board passed a motion  of appreciation, for Gurney's  service through the past year.  Police news  GIBSONS RCMP  Friday the 13th was not a  lucky day for the driver of a  delivery truck. When the driver  found he was not close enough  to the back door of the RCMP  station, he reversed gears to  move another 10 feet and  scraped over the hood of a  police car. Damage was  minimal but not the embarrassment.  On November 15 following a  break-in of Jamieson Motors at  Highway 101 and Payne Road  two young offenders were apprehended.  In the past week a number of  obscene telephone calls to local  residents have been reported.  The calls have been similar in  content and police urge an immediate report be made to them  of any further calls of this kind.  At 0230 hours, November 15  a lady's purse containing identification was reported stolen at  Elphie's Cabaret.  SECHELT RCMP  Sechelt RCMP are investigating a rash of break-ins in  the Sechelt area, two residential  break-ins and one at the Pender  Harbour Alternate School.

Coast News, November 23,1987  Booking in  by Montague Royal  Anyone who has ever visited  : the Tower of London cannot  '< fail to have been impressed by  I ihc   almost-palpable   air   of  \ brooding gloom that hangs over  ��� those ancient buildings with  ; their raven-haunted bat-  . tlenients. Legend has it that the  ' hoary halls and passageways are  ��� haunted by various entities less  ; substantial than the ravens. On  ! certain overcast days, a visitor,  : caught up in the odd ambience  ; o! the place, can find these tales  ; of ghostly sightings very easy to  I believe. Grim deeds perpetrated  \ here centuries ago, seem to have  \ happened only yesterday. The  ��� Tower hangs suspended in time.  �� Recently I came into posses-  �� sion of a well written, lavishly il-  \ lust rated book that is almost as  '. impressive as a trip to the Tower  ', in person. Written by Chris-  ' lopher Hibbert and produced  ���by the publishing arm of  Newsweek magazine, Tower of  ; ��I ondon traces the story of this  grateful place from its earliest  ^beginnings to the present day.  *Z .although it is always referred  >''Jo in the singular, the Tower of  '"London is actually a whole  '"complex of buildings, all of  .ihem many centuries old. The  HWhite Tower, oldest structure  ':*p\' the 20 that make up the com-  l-plex, was built in the reign of  ��� William   the   Conqueror   and  [ dates back to 1078. The Tower  ��� was originally conceived as a  ; fortress to which the King and  his court could retire, should  London   come  under  attack.  Until  1660, it was used periodically as a royal residence.  ; But the Tower was mainly used  as a place of incarceration for  political prisoners and it is for  this grimmer function that it is  ;best known.  The  Tower's  first  prisoner  was Bishop Rannulf Flambard  ���in 1100. He also became its first  "escapee,  gaining his  freedom  'through a window by means of  a smuggled rope and fleeing to  France. Most of his successors  over the centuries were not so  fortunate.  The Tower was to harbour an  extraordinary number of famous historical figures as unwilling guests, during its long tenure  as a bastille. For the luckier  ones such as Samuel Pepys, the  confinement was a temporary,  if daunting, experience. For too  many others, Anne Bolyn, Guy  Fawkes, Mary, Queen of Scots,  admission to the Tower was an  inevitable prelude to an appointment with the executioner.  Sir Walter Raleigh survived two  lengthy periods of imprisonment, only to be beheaded on  an old charge after an unsuccessful voyage to South  America in search of treasure.  Iri compiling this book,  Christopher Hibbert has  gathered together all the  Tower's better-known legends  and reprised them in lively  fashion. One of the obscurer  items concerns the supernatural  and is the Tower's best authenticated description of a haunting. The story is told by Edmund Lenthal Swifte, a former  keeper of the crown jewels, who  resided in the Tower with his  family from 1814 to 1852.  "...On the night in question  the doors were all closed, heavy  and dark cloth curtains were let  down over the windows, and  the only light was that of two  candles on the table. I sat at the  foot of the table, my son on my  right hand, his mother fronting  the chimney-piece and her sister  on the opposite side. I had offered a glass of water and wine  to my wife when, on putting it  to her lips, she paused and exclaimed, "Good God! What is  that? ���  "I looked up and saw a cylindrical figure like a glass tube,  seemingly about the thickness  of my arm, hovering between  the ceiling and the table, its contents appeared to be a dense  fluid, white and pale azure, like  the gathering of a summer cloud  r  CHRISTIAN SCIENCE  SOCIETY P.O.

This lasted about  two minutes, when it began  slowly to move before my sister-  in-law, then following the  oblong shape of the table,  before my son and myself, it  passed behind my wife and  paused for a moment over her  right shoulder. Instantly she  crouched down and with both  hands covering her shoulder,  shrieked out, "Oh, Christ, it  has seized me!" Even, now,  while writing, I feel the fresh  horror of that moment.

You  don't get much reinforcement  from people around you, and  after the last couple of years,  only a Sagittarian could keep  that sense of 'things are bound  to get better'. It is their gift to  the world and to themselves.  If you were born between  November 24 and December 22  your Sagittarius Sun has had  Saturn moving over its position  in the skies for some part of the  last two years. Saturn can be a  real wet blanket at a party, and  you've probably felt your usual  exuberance for life dampened a  bit.  But you've got something going for you that really can't be  beaten - FAITH. Jupiter, your  ruling planet, bestows generous  portions of faith on your soul,  and if you really listen carefully,  even at the worst times in your  life, you'll hear that voice in the  back of your brain saying, "you  know things will all work out  for the best."  It is not mere coincidence that  Sagittarius is known as a lucky  sign. You really do create your  own reality. That deep-seated  belief, faith if you will, that 'the  gods are in the heavens and all is  well' is reflected in your life.  Things usually do work out for  the best.  That's why a Sagittarian in  despair is a sight to wring any  astrologer's heart. We know  that when you lose that hope,  which is your birthright, you  have lost your ability to create a  positive outcome to the situation.  Every thought you have is  confirmed by the world around  you. If you change your  thoughts, you change your life.  This   isn't   original.   Psycho  logists, metaphysicists, and  'power of positive thinking'  types have said it for a long  time.  If you haven't quite  recovered from Saturn's tromp  over your Sun, start catching  your own thoughts. If they're  negative, cancel them and  replace them with a positive expectation. It will be easy for you,  All of you who were born  before December 12 have seen  the last of that Saturn aspect for  29 years. Those of you born in  the last 10 days of Sagittarius  have another year to go. But  you can control the effects of  this > transit by-, falling ^back-onw.  your faith.  I can never resist a biblical  quote, especially when they're  so appropriate. Remember  Sagittarian, "If ye have faith as  a grain of mustard seed, ye  shall say unto this mountain,  Remove hence to yonder place;  and it shall remove; and nothing  shall be impossible unto you."  (Mark: 4.31). And I know that  you've got more faith than any  little mustard seed.  Kolibas  leaves  Sechelt Alderman Joyce  Kolibas said goodbye last  Thursday to the regional board  where she has represented  Sechelt for the past year. She  told the board that she would  not be returning as Sechelt's  member.  "I had hoped to smooth the  way between the municipality  and the district," she said, "but  I guess I didn't manage to do  that."  The members of the board  gave Kolibas a round of applause and expressed their appreciation for her work and efforts.

From another perspective  Help for Nicaragua  The basics of good garden  soil is a soil that is rich in  humus, friable, and with a well  balanced PH. Have yours tested  by a litmus test if in doubt.  It is very important to note,  that if liming of your soil is  thought necessary, to sweeten  the soil, remember to allow four  to six weeks before manuring,  otherwise your efforts are  wasted, the goodness is lost.  Fall is time to prepare garden  soil for spring outdoor work.  Manure procured now and dug  in will have many months for  rotting and incorporation. The  gardener does not have to worry  in fall about the spring-  demanded well-'rotted'  manure. Fairly coarse, fresh  manure will do just as well.  A good proportion of  manure for the average garden  soil is a wheelbarrow load to  each four square yards. Dig the  soil and leave the turned up surface not smooth and ready but  good   and   rough.   It   helps,  eradicate insect pests that hibernate.  Outdoor chrysanthemums  finished blooming should be cut  back to a few inches, lift root  clumps, trim all green growth,  prune the roots, and place in  wooden boxes approximately 10  centimetres deep. Cover with  mixed soil, clean sand or ver-  miculite two to 3 centimetres  deep, barely covering the root  stock. Do not add moisture until spring^ Plants can survive in  B.C. owing to our mild climate,  but good plants need protection.  Your  Christmas Wish  I Come True  ^ci.  Center  886-DIET  by Peter Prongos  In Mexico's exclusive Zona  Rosa   in   1984,   I   saw   tiny  children begging a few coins  from tourists to help feed their  destitute families. It is a common enough sight in underdeveloped nations, but this was  the first time that I had encountered it. It made me both  sad and angry.  I was on my way to Nicaragua to see for myself what the  1979 revolution meant to the  people there. I knew that the  Sandinistas had led a popular  struggle against the Somoza dictatorship,   which   the   United  States   had   installed   in   the  1930's. The conflict devastated  this small, impoverished country. Before he fled to Miami,  Somoza even ordered his air  force to bomb any factories that  had not already been destroyed  in the fighting.  Over 50,000  people died to oust the tyrant,  100,000  were  wounded,   and  , 40,000 children orphaned. ... ..  But I saw no children begging  in the streets of Managua, or  Grenada, or Masaya, or Leon,  or Corinto.  Instead, I discovered that  Sandinista health programs had  lowered the infant mortality  rate by one third to one half.  The record of the Nicaraguan  government in delivering services to the impoverished majority is unsurpassed in Central  America, including:  Being recognized by the  World Health Organization as a  model country (by eliminating  polio, reducing infant mortality, building 17 new hospitals  and hundreds of health clinics,  etc.).  Unanimously winning a  UNESCO award for reducing  illiteracy from 53 to 11 per cent.  Distributing six million acres  to 88,000 formerly landless  peasants.  The list goes on, but these advances are threatened by the  'contra' war, which has caused  over US $1.5 billion in  damages. Food shortages have  developed and infectious  diseases are increasing (more  2T  ZE  PART 2OF2e  lo the Peoples  of the World  A  BAHAM  statement on  Peace  The Scientific and technological advances  occuring in this unusually blessed century portend a great surge forward in the social evolution of the planet, and indicate the means by  which the practical problems of humanity may  be solved. They provide, indeed, the very  means for the administration of the complex life  of a united world. Yet barriers persist. Doubts,  misconceptions, prejudices, suspicions and  narrow self-interest beset nations and peoples  in their relations one to another.  It is out of a deep sense of spiritual and moral  duty that we ate impelled atihis opportune moment to invite your attention to the penetrating  insights first communicated to the rulers of  mankind more than a century ago by Baha'u:  Uib, Founder of the Baha'f Faith, of which we  are the Trustees.  "The winds of despair," Baha'u'llah wrote,  "arc alas, blowing from every direction, and the  strife that divides and afflicts the human race is  daily increasing. The signs of impending convulsions and chaos can now be discerned, inasmuch as the prevailing order appears to be  lamentably defective." This prophetic judgement has been amply confirmed by the common  experience of humanity. Flaws in the prevailing  order are conspicuous in the inability of  sovereign states organized as United Nations to  exorcize the spectre of war, the threatened collapse of the international economic order, the  spread of anarchy and terrorism, and the intense  suffering which these and other afflictions are  causing to increasing millions. Indeed, so much  have aggression and conflict come to  characterize our social, economic and religious  systems, that many have succumbed to the view  that such behaviour is intrinsic to human nature  and therefore ineracicable.

Locally, one can help Tools  for Peace, a grass-roots  organization which has been  providing material aid to nongovernmental groups in Nicaragua since 1981. This year  they are collecting fishing gear,  rubber boots, corrugated roofing, and notebooks, among  other things, to ship to  Nicaragua.   Money  to   make  bulk purchases of these items is  also needed.  Tools for Peace is sponsoring  an evening of Nicaraguan music  on Thursday, November 26,  when Duo Guardabarranco and  Salvador Bustos will be performing at 7:30 at the Arts Centre  in Sechelt. Their hauntingly  beautiful music was a hit at the  1986 Vancouver Folk Music  Festival. (For information,  about the concert and Tools for  Peace, call 886-2843).

Keep your foel-fired heating system  as a back-up and switch on Electric Plus  for safe, clean, 100% efficient electric heat  Use Electric Plus whenever there is surplus  hydroelectric energy; at other times, simply  switch over to your back-up system, which can  be oil, propane, wood or coaL  Interruptions will be limited to a maximum  of only 120 days between now and March 1991.  Save with our special low rate.  Electric Plus is just 2.5 cents a kilowatt-hour.  That's about half what you would normally pay  for firm electricity. This special rate will stay the  same until March 1991. Even after that, surplus  interruptible hydro will cost substantially less  than firm electricity.  So if you're heating with oil or propane,  Electric Plus can save you up to 50% or more  on fuel, depending on the price of alternative  fuels in your community. You qualify by wiring  for a new electrical meter, which we will  install, and having a back-up system which  uses fuel stored on your property. Electric Plus  is not available to customers now heating  with natural gas.  3S  22  Enjoy Electric Plus combined with wood.

Gayle Preston  Nurses worried  Support trustees  Editor:  ' I think we are very fortunate  to have school trustees on the  Sunshine Coast who 'think  globally and act locally' - they  have joined a growing number  of school boards and local  governments dedicated to finding a way out of the crippling  arms race.  In a recent article in the  Nuclear Times of June 1987, it  stated that more than 900 local  governments in the United  States have passed a nuclear  freeze resolution, that New  York City and Milwaukee high  schools now teach peace studies  courses, and that the California  Department of Education has  appropriated money for every  local school district to assess  and   develop   curricula   for  teaching grade school and high  school courses about 'nuclear  age problems'. More than 600  mayors, city council members  and supervisors have formed  'Local Elected Officials for  Social Responsibility' dedicated  to using their offices to reverse  the arms race.  And closer to home, Vancouver spends up to $100,000  each year for a Walk for Peace  and a Peace Festival - and Burnaby and Grand Forks now  have peace curriculums.  We need to give our local  school trustees support and encouragement - "We need only  to turn our imaginations to our  own backyards and dare to  begin".

Shown above are Grace Rutherford, President; Peggy Gallo and Mary Macdonald,  First and Second Vice Presidents respectively; Corresponding Secretary Joan Rigby; Joan High and  (Treasurer Hugh Earle. Missing from the picture is Phyllis Oszust, Recording Secretary.  ���Vivian Tepoorten photo  Directors unanimously support  Union about Privatization  Sechelt is planning on expanding its boundaries again but as  explained by Mayor Bud Koch,  "It is not a land grab." The  land in question is a small area  north of Tuwanek and a narrow  strip above Selma Park. It is the  land containing 29 or so people  that are presently considered  Area C along with the Sechelt  Indian Band.  But after January 1,1988, the  Indian Band should have at  least its own municipal  autonomy and will be formally  taken off the books as a part of  Area C. That will leave a little  over two dozen people being  represented by one director who  is paid more than a municipal  mayor and having an entire vote  on the regional board weighted  voted system, and, "that's not  democratic," says Mayor Koch.

Box 1068,  Vancouver, B.C.  V6C 3E8  A Winning Attitude  Calling the provincial government's privatization plans "The  most significant political move  in B.C. in 50 years," Hans Penner of the B.C. Government  Employees Union (BCGEU)  asked the Sunshine Coast  Regional District (SCRD) to  add their voice to the growing  numbers raised in opposition.  Penner made his appeal at last  week's meeting of the regional  board.  He told the board that at least  50 local employees and their  families are facing the loss of  employment or, at best, an  uncertain future due to the  plans to sell government services  to the private sector. The immediate impact on the Sunshine  Coast will be felt as all the liquor stores in the area are sold  to private interests, and road  and bridge maintenance is turned over to the lowest bidder.  "This highway has been a part  of the community for 50 years.  In some families, two or three  generations have worked on it,"  he stated. He added the warning, "A decision like this wipes  out all the progress for the  Economic development for  years to come."  In addition to being concerned about the immediate local  impact, Penner listed the other  government services slated for  privatization and expressed the  BCGEU's apprehension about  the effect on all British Columbians.  The testing labs for both the  Ministry of Environment and  Parks and the Ministry of  Agriculture and Fisheries,  which regulates aquaculture  operations, are on the shopping  list,  as are the gas, rail and  research and development divisions of B.C. Hydro. And the  Supply Net program which was  presented to businessmen on the  Sunshine Coast just two weeks  ago will also be up for bids. The  program    is   a   computerized  registry of companies who want  to offer their wares to institutions and government agencies.  Penner completed his presentation by asking the SCRD to  "oppose  the   privatization  of  public services and inform the  Provincial Government that the  SCRD board  does  not want  areas such as road maintenance,  liquor distribution, milk testing,  food testing, and environmental  protection turned over to profit-  making companies."  In spite of Chairman Jim  Gurney's cautioning, "I suggest  the board consider very carefully what position it's going to  take. This is not a simple matter." The board's reaction was  quick.  A motion was passed to  waive SCRD policy which  delays discussion of any matter  brought before the board to the  next meeting, and time was alot-  rted"fordiscussion;at the^end- of -  the meeting.  Area A Director Gordon  Wilson put forth a motion,  "That the Sunshine Coast  Regional District write to the  Right Honourable William  Vander Zalm, Premier of  British Columbia, registering  our concern with, and objection  to, the privatization of the  highways and bridge maintenance section, and request that  the premier instruct his staff to  prepare and provide to the  SCRD a detailed cost/benefit  analysis of such a procedure."

However, Wilson said that in  his position as an area director,  the motion addressed the concerns of his constituents.  Throughout the discussion of  the motion, all directors expressed varying degrees of concern about the impact that  privatization will have on the  Sunshine Coast. Gibsons Alderman Norm Peterson reflected  the general uncertainty about  future implications when he  said, "If we get into privatization of highways, the next step  is to lose our local manager and  10 or 12 staff jobs. We'll just  become a part of the North  Vancouver district and lose all  control   over   our   highway;"  t��� Wilsoli'S'motion was" passed''  unanimously.  Consultant  questioned  Continued from page 6  on the emotions. All we do is  put together the technical  data."  Moore worked for the provincial government for 38 years,  20 of which were in the office of  Municipal Affairs, and has held  a deputy minister position.  Mayor Diane Strom maintained Tom Moore is the best  available within the town's  budget.  Peterson and Strom also  stress that the committee is  responsible for the direction  they give themselves in gathering information for the study  and that council will not influence what direction that may  be.  "It's up to the committee to  ask questions and get the information they are looking for,"  Strom said.  Sorko said the committee's  concern is to share the concerns  of the public "because we know  this is a very politically sensitive  issue. There are people violently  for and violently against and  some who haven't got a clear  idea if it's a good idea or a bad  idea." This includes herself and  many of the committee members, she said.  The committee is to look at  the pros and cons of incorporating the Town of Gibsons  with Areas E and F, including  Port Mellon, into a district and  to determine if services would  suffer or gain from such an expanded tax base. It will also  evaluate the material contained  in Tom Moore's preliminary  report to determine if the study  is being done well enough, according to Sorko.  Which firm does the study is  a past issue for now, due to  council's verbal contrat with  Tom Moore.  "Based on the last council  meeting agreement to hire Tom  Moore, I phoned and informed  him," Administrator Lorraine  Goddard told council last Tuesday.  Though she did hold back a  letter of confirmation, council  feels it is bound by that discussion and will retain Tom Moore  for the study.
