Vern Elliott photo  Late ferry proposal  Triangle run suggested  Following a meeting with  Bowen Island residents j Bill  McKinnon recommended to the  Ferry Task Force last week that  they join the Bowen group in  pressuring the provincial  government to run a late evening ferry from Horseshoe Bay  to Bowen and Langdale.  The combined population, he  suggested, could support a  triangle run, for the late evening  only, which would make it  financially feasible.  McKinnon told the Task  Force the residents of Bowen  Island are attempting to set up a  meeting with their MLA, John  Reynolds, and would like the  Coast group to be a part of it.  He also suggested that data  be collected on the amount of  government money that has  been invested in tourism and  economic development on the  Sunshine Coast, money which is  essentially wasted if a proper  transportation system is not in  place.  The B.C. Transit System was  also a subject of interest to Mr.  McKinnon's analytical, .mind.  He presented the task force with  a breakdown of small community transit systems in B.C.  and quoted Rita Johnston,  minister responsible for B.C.  Transit, as writing that the Sunshine Coast is on B.C. Transit's  priority list for 1987-88 funding.  There are two studies already  in existence, he pointed out,  which could be updated to  reflect current needs.  Area A director Gordon  Wilson pointed out that, even  without any updating, the plan  formulated on the basis of the  studies was that by now there  would be two regular bus routes  in place, as well as a third bus  providing pick-up service.  Jim Gurney was also familiar  . with the studies and commented, "I think the provincial  government has acted in bad  faith, because it was on the  basis of a study done by*fi.C7  Transit itself, indicating that  .plan, that the regional district  got involved in the program."  Wilson brought up the fact  that Grace McCarthy is scheduled to visit the Sunshine Coast in  September, and urged the Task  Force: "Let's get her aside and  explain that what we need here  is an adequate transit system."  The Task Force agreed to set  up an ad hoc committee to update the information from the  studies and compile an information package to give to McCarthy when she is here.  Dust and noise charged  Fish plant fuss  The reluctance of operators  at the Egmont Fish Plant to do  anything about the noise and  dust disturbing their neighbours  could result in stiffer restrictive  covenants being attached to all  future rezoning by-laws for  similar projects.  . At last week's meeting of the  ^Regional District's Planning  Committee, Jim Gurney told  'directors he has received  numerous complaints from  residents in the area and has  gone up to take a look at the  situation himself.  What he saw prompted him  to write a strongly-worded letter  to the plant operators, accusing  them of "acting in bad faith"  and demonstrating "indifference to agreements made  during the rezoning public hearings".  Although there was nothing  specific put into the restrictive  covenants which is contravened  by the noise and dust problem,  Gurney said the developers had  made a strong moral commitment to cooperate with their  neighbours.  Area A director Gordon  Wilson agreed with Gurney's  assessment of the seriousness of  the problem. "The dust created  by trucks going in and out of  the plant is more than a discomfort," he said, "it completely  coats the houses."  Gurney is asking the company to oil the roads to the  plant in order to reduce the  dust. He wants the company  also to address the complaints  made by residents about excessive noise. There may be action the Regional District can  take under its noise by-law, he  suggested.  In the future, Gurney said,  the  Regional   District   should  make sure covenants are attached to rezoning by-laws which  ensure that all the roads in the  area will be paved.  However, residents near the  Egmont Fish Plant may have to  take civil action to have their  present problem solved.  Leave it to the mayor  Fair representation  at Sechelt Council  by Ken Collins  Mark Battersby petitioned  Sechelt Council last Wednesday  evening to give a letter of support to Tuwanek residents in  their fight to prevent Jackson  Brothers Logging from assuming a waterlot lease just north of  Tuwanek.  Jackson Brothers have purchased 80 acres from another  logging company and want to  assume the accompanying lease  so they can bag-boom and tow  the logs to be sorted from the  north side of the bay to the  south side.  The Tuwanek residents feel  they are encircled and now live  in the middle of a logging camp.  Jackson Brothers were not at  the meeting and Mayor Bud  Koch would have liked to have  seen them there to present an  opposing view. "Was Jackson's  notified so they could speak  tonight?" Koch asked.  Battersby had been a late ad-  diton to the agenda but now the  procedure has been changed so  the Thursday noon before the  Wednesday council meeting will  be the cut-off date. All concerned parties are then to be contacted by Municipal Hall so  they may give input and  everything will be democratic.  Alderman Ken Short questioned how municipal staff  would determine who was concerned. "Certain problems will  be of interest to several  groups," he countered. "It  could soon turn into a public  hearing."  "Try it, and leave it to the  discretion of the chair,"  asserted the mayor. The rest of  council was silent.  Koch writes premier  ehelt upset over  ravel proposal  by Ken Collins  Sechelt Mayor Bud Koch has  protested to B.C. Premier Bill  Vander Zalm that a proposed  gravel extraction project would  desecrate Trail Bay and ruin the  town of Sechelt.  In a letter dated August 17,  he also has asked the premier to  phone him, as the matter is  urgent.  "I will be at your disposal until this grave situation is dealt  with," Koch wrote to Vander  Zalm.  "Please be advised that we  have an alternative that would  take the gravel in another direction and would not desecrate  one of the most beautiful  natural bays in British Columbia," Mayor Koch wrote.  In a telephone interview with  the Coast News, Koch said that  the alternative he referred to is  the installation of a conveyor  system to run the gravel back to  the existing Porpoise Bay extraction site and then by barge  through Sechelt Inlet as is  presently done.  "The Indian Band gravel we  have no problem with, in that  there's only 100 acres there. It  wouldn't take very long to extract it."  He added: "I'm not saying  the Indian Band should not do  what they are doing. That's not  for us to decide. But putting  another 1,500 acres to it would  make it a 30-year operation."  The other 1,500 acres contain  gravel that Construction Aggregates is planning to extract as  a joint venture with the Sechelt  Band. The Band would supply  loading facilities in Trail Bay  and Construction Aggregates  would do the extraction from  both Crown and Indian District  sites.  The agreements have already  been signed.  Band spokesman Chief Tom  Paul described the development. The entire excavation site  would be surrounded by trees,  he said, and would not be visible from either Porpoise Bay or  Trail Bay.  The gravel would go through  a tunnel under the highway and  into a state-of-the-art muffled  conveyor system.  Chief Paul and Band Council  members recently visited a  similar system in Victoria.  "Standing beside it we couldn't  hear any noise," said Chief  Paul.  Resident angry  Water concern in Gibsons  The Town of Gibsons has  issued a report stating: "When  a report of high coliform counts  in our water was received by our  Superintendent he immediately  sought the source of the contamination. It was found that  the automatic chlorinator had  ceased to function properly,  and arrangements have been  made for replacement of a  defective bearing."  The report, dated August 18,  goes on to say the main source  of the contamination was  Chaster Creek, with some from  Inge Creek as well. The report  ends:    'We have stopped the  flow from both creeks into our  reservoirs and are depending  solely upon our wells.'  Mrs Gail Fredericksen of  Davis Road is still boiling her  water, however. She said she  has been complaining about the  taste of her water for several  weeks and couldn't get satisfaction from the municipal employees, so she brought it to the  attention of the health department. High coliform counts  were then discovered.  "We haven't been drinking  water since mid-June," said  Mrs. Fredericksen.  The reason they still don't  trust the water, she said, is that  the Town is unable or unwilling  to flush out the lines properly.  One town employee told her  the town government was broke  and did not have any money.  The Coast News contacted  Alderman Bob Maxwell, who  Mrs. Fredericksen said she first  approached with the problem.  Maxwell said everything was  under control, the chlorinator  was repaired and being manually monitored, and the Town is  financially solvent.  "Coliform is not an extreme  health hazard," he stated.  Bracewell blames sewage  Marsh blamed for odour  Alderman Ken Short doesn't  like the condition of Sechelt  Marsh. "I find this place  disgusting," he told Sechelt  Council last Wednesday,  "Sechelt Marsh should be called Sechelt Swamp!"  "The water level has dropped three feet," he continued,  saying that this has created a  mud bank that smells, "The  water is always black. There is  debris floating caused by  beavers. The decision of council to keep the beavers has  created a mud hole. And there  is no garbage can." Short also  said the beavers had caused the  water to back up to the sewer  treatment property.  The marsh is doing exactly  what it is supposed to do says  Vince Bracewell of the Sechelt  Marsh Protective Society. "It  is supposed to be a natural  place, not a park. We try to  maintain it as wild as possible.  It was purchased as a wildlife  preserve and is owned by the  Nature Trust of B.C."  "The beavers have created  two biotic zones," Bracewell  explained, "We now have a  salt marsh below and a fresh  water pond above. This is making a better enrivonment for  the ducks and everything else."  "What about the new  culvert?" the Coast News asked.  "We've reverted to the same  situation we had 30 or 40 years  ago where more salt water is  coming in at the will of the  tides so it floods in there at a  higher level than it used to and  then recedes until we have a  low tide," explained Bracewell.  "What about the odour?"  asked the Coast News.  "The problem is the sewage  plant," claims Bracewell,  "They have a drying bed in  there which they operate in  summer. They turn big fans on  and open louvers that open  right on to the marsh."  The Marsh Society will be  meeting with Aldermen Short  and Herder this week to attempt some kind of meeting of  mind.  On their initiative  Pender to join SCRD water  The South Pender Harbour  Waterworks District (SPHWD)  is considering becoming part of  the regional water system.  And Sunshine Coast Regional District (SCRD) chairman  Jim Gurney wants it clear in  everybody's mind that the initiative is coming from them,  not the SCRD.  At a meeting of the Public  Utilities Committee last week, a  letter was received from David  Maw, chairman of the board of  trustees for SPHWD, containing 20 questions which he wants  answered before the trustees  consider a referendum on the  issue.  Area A director Gordon  Wilson has met with the trustees  several times and discussed the  possibility of integrating the two  systems. In his letter, Maw  states: "Mr Wilson suggested a  survey by the SCRD costing  some $8,000 which in the opinion of some taxpayers was unnecessary as two engineering  reports are already available  covering the SPHWD system.  "However, the Trustees are  anxious to obtain a firm outline  of the requirements for amalgamation in order that a more  enlightened decision can be considered, and request that the  necessary engineering study be  instituted by the SCRD as soon  as possible."  Area E director Jim Gurney  pointed out that the answers to  the 20 questions included in  Maw's letter would be in the  study, and the letter was referred to Public Works Supervisor  Gordon Dixon.  Traffic fatality  Gibsons RCMP have released the name of a 22 year old  man killed in a two-car accident Saturday, August 15 on  Highway 101.  Lance Darren Toth died from injuries sustained in the accident, in which a vehicle travelling east on the highway crossed  the centre line and struck an oncoming vehicle.  Toth was an occupant in the east-bound vehicle.  No to revitalization  Property owners in Sechelt narrowly turned down the proposal of the revitalization committee last week.  Mayor Bud Koch asserts that he tried to tell the revitalization committee that they were going about their business  wrong and the committee feels the mayor was far from a  disinterested party in the matter.  "The mayor lobbied actively against our proposal, probably because it would affect his display space on Wharf  Avenue," one member of the committee told the Coast  News. "  1       i   , ��f rV  .. 1    U^_ _   _��______&-$!___  mEMMM^ Coast News, August 24,1937  7     ;  r  Gravel effraction  It may be of some community service if we answer the  question posed by lawyer Diane Davidson of Tuwanek in  her letter to the editor this week. How could a major  gravel extraction operation be planned in the Sechelt area  this week without Sechelt Council being aware of it?  Mayor Bud Koch will tell anyone who listens that this is  an attempt by regional board chairman Jim Gurney to  'kneecap' Sechelt. Not so, Mr. Koch.  The genesis of the present gravel proposal goes back to  1985. Then Economic Development Commissioner Oddvin Vedo was charged with the responsibility of finding an  oil tank farm to take the oil tanks out of residential areas  on the Coast. The proposed land swap of the Genstar property at Hillside for the gravel on crown land adjacent to  Indian land came out of Vedo's efforts.  All of this was discussed at the Economic Development  Commission in 1985, including meetings with the Indian  Band. Sechelt's unawareness stems from the fact that their  delegate to the Economic Development Commission-  could not be persuaded to attend any meetings during  that entire year.  In return for this information would Ms Davidson care  to explain her failure to take cognizance of the fact that  this is an Indian Band matter in her letter, and does she  have any suggestion as to how the drastic problems of  unemployment and poverty which have been chronically  the lot of our native people can be solved if they are to be  denied this initiative?  One-man band  The furore over gravel extraction diverts attention from  other matters pertaining to Sechelt. Perhaps it would be  equally a public service if we offered a few observations on  other matters lest they be entirely overlooked.  One of the disturbing features of Sechelt political life is  the increasing tendency of the mayor to do his one-man-  band act. He knows better than the revitalization committee how revitalization should proceed; he knows better  than the senior citizens where their new hall should be, to  name just two examples. ��  Backed up by a compliant and apparently entirely  pliable council, the mayor dances in fascinating doublespeak from issue to issue leaving all gasping in his wake  not entirely sure of what it was he said or where his enthusiasm and energy will take him next.  For example, we have difficulty reconciling a mayor  who opposes revitalization of Wharf Avenue because  sidewalks will be punitive to existing businesses and in the  next breath is proposing a canal along the same street.  The fact that the canal would have to include some Indian land and that the mayor is doing his best to torpedo  the gravel extraction plans of the Indian Band at the same  time as he is proposing a canal does not fill one with confidence about the depth of his reflection nor the quality of  his judgement.  Apologies  Space limitations caused us to cut short several columnists, leave out several pictures and several timely let-  teers including three or more on the use of Cooper's  Green by recreational vehicles. Our apologies.  ���At*m 111* filet of Its* OOMT NEWS  5 YEARS AGO  Sechelt Council blasts SCRD on office space and over-  staffing. Mayor Bud Koch expresses strong disapproval  at the board's decision to pay $60,000 per year on office  space and Alderman Ken Short says, "I feel strongly that  the SCRD is over-staffed."  Gibsons Council introduces bylaw to prohibit the use  of any gun, rifle, pistol, fowling piece, shotgun, air or  pellet gun, sling-shot, or bow and arrows within village  boundaries.  10 YEARS AGO  A new feature along the Sunshine Coast Highway  these days is the sunshine kilometre markers. At present  the markers mark off every even numbered kilometre  from Langdale the entire length of the Sunshine Coast  and are designed to make it easier for tourist and local  people alike to locate the various hospitality units along  the Coast.  20 YEARS AGO  Gibsons and Sechelt are to be linked by air with a daily  express air passenger and freight service to Vancouver.  30 YEARS AGO  Building permits totalling $5,700 in value were granted  by Gibsons Village Commission Tuesday night.  The  largest was for a $4,000 one storey laundry  building 32x45 feet on property near the firehall.  40 YEARS AGO  Gibsons - this village has had the biggest day of its existence on Saturday, August 16.

For the record  A couple of weeks back I was  picking my way through the  logging debris which blocked up  to five different paths in Cliff  Gilker Park for most of the  summer.  Picking his way through from  the other side came a gentleman  with one of the prettiest little  Shetland collies I'd ever seen. I  was accompanied, as usual by  my border collie, Meg, and the  gentleman and I had a long chat  about dogs before I found I was  talking to the newest Sunshine  Coast Regional District (SCRD)  employee, Steve Alexander of  the Parks Branch.  Two days later I was in the  park again and found that Mr; ���,.=,  Alexander, who was as appalled���' '^  as I at the condition the park  was in, had been as good as his  word and had the trails cleared.  The logging has been taking  place because the Roberts Creek  Community Association wants  to build a baseball field and got  permission to proceed with the  requisite clearing from SCRD  director Brett McGillivray at a  meeting last June.  I understand that ardent environmentalist McGillivray was  off doing homage to South  Moresby this summer with logging debris left all over the trails  of Cliff Gilker Park. Typical.  Some interesting things happened in connection with that  last meeting of the Community  Association. I asked why Cliff  Gilker Park was the most  neglected park on the Coast  while hundreds of thousands of  dollars were being spent in every  other area. The chairman told  me we weren't there to talk  about that though I'd been invited to come and discuss my  community concerns.  I wrote nothing about it, having had my say, and was interested to discover that Coast  News reporter Jeanie Parker,  herself a ballplayer, excised all  mention of me from her report.  The next day I was stopped in  Roberts Creek and it was  demanded of me why I was opposed to a baseball field.  I know that such use of the  park is in keeping with the  Community Plan and replied  that I had never once said or  written anything opposed to the  baseball field.  I pointed out that the year  previously I had mentioned at  an association meeting that one  problem that should be addressed sooner rather than later was  the dangerous turn-off from the  highway into the park. This  year we have a super turn-off  lane at Roberts Creek Road  where the road is straight and I  wondered why the money was  not spent at the park entrance.  I say again in print what I  have said privately. When  Harry Almond was regional  director, Roberts Creek was  first in line for SCRD services:  first to have an Official Community Plan and the beneficiary of the first two years of  the Joint Use of School funds  with which to build the Glen  Kraus hall.  Why is it that the park in  Roberts Creek is the last to get  attention? Why is it that, apart  from the recent efforts of the  newly arrived Mr. Alexander,  SCRD efforts have made access  more difficult not less.  I know of no occasion when  permission to cut trees in Cliff  Gilker Park has been sought of  Director McGillivray when he  hasn't complied.  McGillivray was elected with  the main plan of bringing  recycling to the Coast. When  that battle was being fought he  was out of the country and the  initiative failed. Apart from  that he seems content to preside  over the SCRD planning  department as though he were  endlessly conducting an  academic seminar.  Incidentally the funds for the  latest outbust of logging came  from the West Howe Sound  Recreation Commission dominated by Areas E and F. For  people who just want to be left  alone in rural peace, the  representatives of Areas E and  F cut a wide swathe.  Flight of the Roller Coaster  Once more around should do it, the man confided...  and sure enough, when the roller-coaster reached the peak  of the giant curve above me, screech of its wheels  almost drowned out by the shriller cries of the riders,  instead of the dip and plunge with its landslide of screams,  it rose in the air like a movieland magic carpet,  some wonderful bird,  and without fuss or fanfare swooped slowly across  the amusement park,  over Spook's Castle, ice-cream booths, shooting-gallery.  And losing no height  made the last yards above the beach, where the cucumber-  cool  brakeman in the last seat saluted  a lady about to change from her bathing-suit.  Then, as many witnesses reported, headed leisurely  out over the water,  disappearing all too soon behind a low-flying flight of clouds.  Raymond Souster  ^  _��<  Lugsdin leaving Sunshine Coast  by Penny Fuller  When Irene Lugsdin was  hired for the position of Community Development Officer in  the summer of 1985, she was  full of optimism about the  potential for the Sunshine  Coast.  In an interview with the  Coast News at that time, she  said, "There are a lot of people  with good energy, great ideas,  and they start off strongly but  they don't know how to work  together as a group. I see my  job, and that of the committee I  will form, as doing a lot of  listening, filtering the input, acting as peace-maker sometimes,  or as a complaint bureau, helping the communications between different groups.  Now, two years later, she has  given notice to the Sunshine  Coast Regional District (SCRD)  that she will be leaving in mid-  September to take a job with  Canada Futures.  While Lugsdin has had to  handle   unexpected   obstacles  and personal attacks in attempting to accomplish her objectives, during the two brief years  of work in this area she has accomplished much.  Working against the odds,  she managed to bring both  municipalities back into the  Economic Development Commission, which resulted in acquisition of Partners in Enterprise funding.  She was instrumental in  organizing the Forest Advisory  Committee, with members from  various industry groups, economic development groups and  concerned citizens, where concerns could be discussed and investigated by everyone involved.  This committee commissioned  the recently released Dry Kiln  Feasibility Study which may  result in the construction of a  kiln in the Hillside area.  When the local tourism  association collapsed, Lugsdin  worked diligently with local  operators to organize a new  coordinating   body   with   a  marketing arm, Travel Sunshine  Coast, bringing in Partners in  Tourism money from the provincial coffers and putting a  local representative, Brian  Rubin, on the executive of the  Southwestern B.C. Tourist  Association.  The feasibility of a Small  Business Centre was investigated, on Lugsdin's recommendation, and one was opened  this summer and is successfully  operating out of Capilano College.  Perhaps her most impressive  accomplishment in economic  development was the acquisition, last winter, of Canada  Futures designation for the Sunshine Coast. When the administrating committee is selected  by the federal government, the  Canada Futures program will  provide an infusion of money  into the Sunshine Coast for  economic development projects.  Lugsdin told the Coast News  last week that she will be spen  ding the next few weeks tieing  up loose ends to ensure a  smooth transition period when  she leaves.  In a statement to regional  board directors last week,  SCRD chairman Jim Gurney  wrote: "I am looking- to the  Economic Development Commission to continue with the  projects under way, with the  assistance of experienced people  on a fee-for-service basis. These  experienced project leaders will  ensure the successful implementation and/or completion of  EDC's key economic development projects.  "I will be recommending to  the SCRD board that her postposition not be filled immediately, and that the function  be reviewed by a neutral, credible and experienced economic  development evaluator. The  evaluator will recommend a  future direction and outline for  the delivery of the regional  economic development function." Coast News, August 24,1987  Editor:  I have a home in a small  residential area on the Sechelt  Inlet. I am writing to oppose the  trade of government land near  Sechelt to Genstar for a private  gravel extraction operation.  A gravel operation is not appropriate to the long-range  development and best use of the  Sechelt area.  Sechelt currently relies heavily for a significant part of its income and tax base on recreational uses, including a large  summer population who maintain homes here, and a large  retirement population, plus  tourists. Open-pit gravel extraction is inimical to those major  uses and users of the area.  Many people in the Sechelt  area, including the Sechelt town  council, have a vision for  Sechelt and the Sechelt Inlet's  eventual development, as a major recreational/tourist area  comparable to Whistler, Banff  and Harrison.  A major gravel port in Trail  Bay conflicts with the development of Block 7 proposed by  the Sechelt council, which  development has been widely  publicized.  I assure you the Sechelt council was not aware of the proposed land trade and has not been  properly or fully consulted.  I say this knowing that there  is a claim that the Sechelt  representative on the Economic  Development Council should  have been aware that this proposal was in the works.  Irrespective of the accuracy  or not of the claim, it is my view  that such a major undertaking  requires extensive public hearings.  It is no longer appropriate to  develop British Columbia on a  gold rush basis. It is particularly  inappropriate  to permit  such  development in a municipality.  The Sechelt municipality has involved the work of many people  over many years to develop it as  the satisfactory place it currently is.  Putting a major open pit extraction operation in its midst  does not accord with any of the  many indicators that exist as to  the direction Sechelt citizens  want to go.  Further, gravel extraction  operations which are essentially  open pit mining should not be  put in areas where there is  potential for recreational,  tourism and retirement uses.  Open pit use precludes other  uses.  Sechelt is on a flat former  marsh located between the  Georgia Strait and Sechelt Inlet.  There is no environmental,  tourism, recreational or general-  use need for the removal of the  hills that back onto Sechelt.  Their use is more appropriately  reserved for recreational/tourism and future housing uses.  May I stress that in any use of  land that may impact on other  present or potential uses, there  should be widely publicized  hearings, and efforts made to  get the people who might have  an opinion on the subject.  Those hearings should be both  passive, in the sense that there  are notices published and people come to them, and active, in  the sense that effort should be  made to ensure that present and  potential future users or users'  groups are contacted to input.  It is my view that there  should never be a situation such  as exists now where even the  municipal council is taken by  surprise and by a use which  would impact forever on all  users. Sincerely,  Diana M. Davidson  Park questions  Editor:  Reading in last week's Coast  News that the Golf Club plans  an expansion "on 56 acres proposed for that purpose" and  which "includes the back portion of Cliff Gilker Park"  makes one feel like Rip van  Winkle. Just what deals have  been made in the back rooms  over the summer?  As I understand it, Gliff  Gilker Park, even though it is  situated within the boundaries  of Roberts Creek, does not  belong exclusively to the  Roberts Creek Community  Association, but to all the people of the Sunshine Coast, and  is administered on their behalf  by the Regional Board.  So, where and when and by  whom was the decision made to  allow all those trees to be cut?  When was public input and  discussion invited?  We have lost some beautiful  firs and cedars which are  presumably valuable ��� what is  this money earmarked for?  AFTERNOON TEA  is now being served at the  CORNER STONE  TEA HOUSE  in Lower Gibsons at the  'Old Doc Inglis House',  School Road & Hwy 101,  Sat. & Sun., 1-5 pm  Reservations preferred but  not necessary 886-9261  Where, when and by whom  was the decision made to cede  the back portion of the Park to  the Golf Club?  Did I miss some well publicized public meeting to discuss  this issue?  How many more special interest groups are lined up  waiting their turn to exploit  Cliff Gilker or another of our  Parks?  I'm not at this time discussing  the pros and cons of either decision, I'm asking about the basic  democratic process and how it is  interpreted by the Regional  Board, or whether the Directors  have decided to dispense with  public participation.

Rain doesn't spoil picnic  by Larry Grafton  The last time we had an in-  f r door picnic, prior to this year's  i: gathering,  was in  1981   as I  ^recall, during Elizabeth Derby's  presidency. Old Mother Nature  has been kind to us over the  years but why she chose August  13 to rain this year, after more  weeks  of  fine weather  than  usual, we'll never know!  In any case, the hall was  prepared for action by a few  dedicated volunteers early that  morning and by 11:30 am it was  necessary to prepare additional  tables to take care of the crowd.  There was a good variety of  food available, all supplied by  our members, and plenty for  "seconds". After the wreckage  was cleared away, Bill Scott  called for bingo, and a goodly  number of members enjoyed  that.  Charlie Stephens did a fine  job organizing the occasion for  a sunny day. Unfortunately, the  indoor picnic eliminated  horseshoes and cribbage ��� an  aggravation which only pointed  out the need for our proposed  larger building to take care of  more than one activity at a time.  Thanks are due to all committee members for the smooth  manner in which the gathering  was conducted ��� despite the  rain!  GRAVEL PLANT  The cards were turned faceup last week and Trail Bay is  again faced with a proposed  gravel extraction plant, with  resultant desecration of the  natural beauty of the area.  Should anyone care to see  what a gravel plant looks like ���  and what an area looks like  after extraction of gravel ���  then drive over to East Porpoise  Bay and see for yourselves.  It was in 1966 that Construction Aggregates were intent on  extracting gravel from the Indian lands, and they went so far  as to establish a beach-head on  the point at Selma Park.  A concerted effort by an  angry group of land-owners in  the general area at that time  may or may not have been instrumental in stopping the  operation, but in any case it was  discontinued.  Since Porpoise Bay is already  a commercial area, Vic Walters  has the right idea when he says,  "Take it out through Porpoise  Bay." More expensive for the  company, but more practical  for the environment.  The power of the pen apparently did the job in 1966, and it  will certainly help again. Let's  keep Trail Bay as it is!  PNETRIP  The trip to the PNE has been  confirmed for Wednesday,  September 2. May Widman  (885-5200) advises that the bus  will leave the Royal Bank at  7:20 am. At present there are  openings for 10 or 15 more  seniors.  Roberts    Greek  Library Open House  by Jeanie Parker, 885-2163  The volunteers of Roberts  Creek Community Library are  holding an Open House at the  library on Tuesday, September  1. All members of the community are invited to come and  see the greatly improved facility  which has resulted from the recent expansion.  The library is now a bright  and pleasant place where  children and adults can enjoy  browsing or reading at their  leisure. An ever expanding  number of new books is  available and suggestions from  all members for new titles and  authors are welcome.  It is hoped the Open House  will bring out all the library's  members, past and present, as  well as all those who are curious  about or interested in the library  The Gibsons Medical Clinic  is pleased to announce  the return of  DR. ROBERT M. LEHMAN  from a one year sabbatical,  to resume his General Practice  as of August 17, 1987.

LEGION MUSIC  For an end-of-the-summer  evening, out, drop in at the  Roberts Creek Legion this  weekend. Larry Bransen will be  entertaining there Friday and  Saturday nights. Members and  guests are both welcome.  The Legion is already making  plans for the Octoberfest  celebrations to be held October  16 and 17. There'll be music,  comedy and dancing both  nights, and a Bavarian feast on  the Saturday night, for $10 per  person. Start practicing your  polka!  GUIDES SAVE BOAT  The staff at Camp Olave  were surprised to see a cabin  cruiser coming into the swimming area around noon last Sunday. They were even more astounded when the train ferry  turned around and started to  head in also!  The pleasure boat came right  into shore and put out a  rowboat to get three of its  passengers to the beach. The  yacht had been taking in water  since leaving Gibsons.  Local members of the coast  guard responded to the distress  call with two Zodiacs, a  sailboat, a beachcomber's  power boat, a log salvage boat  for towing the disabled craft,  and an Irish Setter(!).  They were most efficient in  pumping out the boat. The activity drew quite a crowd of  Brownies and Guides to the  waterfront and, as the craft  pulled away, all on shore applauded ��� especially for the  dog.  BROWNIES CAMP  It was the Brownies' turn to  go to camp last weekend. Fifteen girls from Roberts Creek  went to Camp Olave for a two-  night stay, with days filled with  activities.  Davis Bay  News & Views  Pioneer  Picnic  by Jean Robinson, 885-2954  PIONEER PICNIC  It is countdown to the good  old fashioned Fourth Annual  Pioneer Picnic. It starts at 2 pm,  August 30, at the Davis  Bay/Wilson Creek Community  Hall and Whitaker Park, where  Laurel meets Davis Bay Road in  Davis Bay.  There will be a kiddies'  parade of decorated bicycles,  tricycles and wagons. This starts  at 2 pm and there will be a prize  in each category. Ages 3 to 12  can participate.  There will be at least one  horseshoe pitch ready for a  game or two.  At 2:30 pm we will be leaving  for the Chapman Creek Fish  Hatchery.  Later there will be foot races  for ages 2 to 82.  Pot Luck Dinner starts at 5  pm. Bring cutlery, plates, and a  salad and cold cuts. Starting at  3:30 pm, there will be hot corn  on the cob, ice cream and pop  for sale. Tickets are three for  $1.

Their last visit to Janey was  11 years ago when she lived in  Vancouver, and they are absolutely thrilled with the Sunshine Coast. Janey is sure her  cousin will return to England  with binocular marks on his  eyes, he spends so much time  watching the action on the  water.  No wonder. From Janey's  place the view is looking over  Georgia Strait and the Trail  Islands, with Vancouver Island  intthe background and all the  vessels travelling north and  south passing in front.  Tugs pulling their booms of  logs, sailboats, pleasure craft,  the big cruise ships heading for  Alaska ��� and the chance that a  pod of whales might be seen.  Then on top of all that, to have  sunny warm days for days on  end. The Coast is putting on a  good show for our visitors.  Meeting the latest member of  Janey's family ��� her daughter  Barbara and Barbara's husband ,  Peter live up the road with a  new baby, Janey's fifth grandchild ��� was another pleasure  for the Bustards.  "BUNNY" WRIGHT  The Festival of the Written  Arts was an outstanding success, from all reports. The only  event I personally can attest to  was Event XI on Sunday, August 16, held in the very attractive  tent at Greenecourt in Sechelt.  The introduction was by Jan  de Bruyn, retired professor of  English (UBC) and founding  editor of Prism International.  The star of the program was  L.R. (Bunny) Wright, who read  from her books and talked  about writing a mystery.  What a delightful lady! She  addressed the gathering in a  very natural, genuine way, as if  she was amongst friends. With  good reason I am sure everyone  there had read at least one of  her books and especially The  Suspect with its story taking  place in Sechelt. It won her the  Edgar Allan Poe best novel  award.  John Wright has been involved with the Beachcombers as a  film director, a vocation Bunny  has found makes him a fine  critic of her work.  The Sunshine Coast Festival  of the Written Arts Society and  all its workers, from coordinator producer Betty Keller to  all those who worked so well to  make this the huge success it  was, are to be commended.  Such satisfaction they must  feel, as their efforts resulted in  such a great production.  *  1/2 PRICE  Jackets  Short Sleeve Shirts  Dress Pants  ���1/3 TO 1/2 OFf  OFF  Selected Tops f\  & Pants For nA  Back To School^  Great Summer Wear  Bargains At  60% off  *_-  Jeans  Long Sleeve Sport Shirts  FLEECE TOPS - 1/3 OFF  OTSEE IN-STOllS  WWMMMs ��IiEA&Alf��B  h��>J  fc^m4  ALLTSALES FINAL ON SALES MERCHANDISE  Visa & Mastercard Accepted  Jtaya^ liiliii;<^WiK��i^iffi  ham ever entert  1 by George Copper, 886-8520  ;    An aging Puck tossed shop-  ! worn jokes and scornful opi-  ���jiions to a tent-full of Sunshine  .^Coasters upon a recent Satur-  7day evening at the Festival of  ! the Written Arts in Sechelt.  ��  This puerility was a sauce  . for the disparaging view of  ! government that Allan Fother-  jingham   of   Southam's   and  ;Macleans' dished out to us, the  lopen-mouthed audience.  I    We have read it before and  .Uiked or disliked what he has  |said. "But that's no concern  $o him," said a nearby uncomfortable chairperson, "as long  ��as we all read his stuff."  fr  And  his jokes (he's used  ethose before,"  said another  chair   nearby."),   the   circumlocutions of his Dr. Foth,  $the derisive epithets such as  &Brian Baloney and so on, the  *,puns (Iranamok,  a splendid  d?one) are just what titillate us.  >_���*: Oh, but hasn't he got us pegged. The man is cunning. He  knows we will admire his brash-  ness.   He   speaks   what   we  ^thought we thought about our  ���^politicians.   He  makes  them  '^scapegoats for all our venom.  V;v   Thus his words are widely  ^distributed to exotic journals  ,7)ike the Hong Kong Post and  'Ahe Chilliwack Progress.  P      "You know, that Fother-  #ingham or Fearleth Fothwick  t'^as you so childishly call him,  .*;could be a great help to me  /> picking blackberries," said my  7" Aunt Anastie. Aunt Anastie  v  reads him every week but  could not attend his tent  meeting because the dish-  shaped chairs just would not  ^accommodate her.  "Yes, indeed," she continued, "he would be picking  off the thorns and leave me to  get the berries unscratched."  Aunt Anastie missed a fine  show. The Froth is a performer, a speaker, despite his  disclaimer (you recollect the  seventh husband of Jaw-jaw  Gabor?). His impish half-grin,  his rotund face, his bright  waxworks complexion gave an  added dimension to his turn of  thought. Put an elf's cap with  tassel or bell on the man's  head there's as pretty a Santa's  helper as parliament could find  for its Christmas party.  Fotheringham denied being  a writer, too. "I'm a journalist, a recorder." Did  anyone believe that?  The next afternoon another  speaker had a message, too.  But he was so serious and sombre that his plea to save live  theatre did not stir up the  response he sought. Rather,  the point was missed, it seems,  by his audience which voiced  querulous concern over ticket  prices and what theatre's purpose is.  Fotheringham will keep me  for one, reading his page in  Maclean's though only some of  them will appeal to me. The one  that decries, for example, the  mayhem and life-ruining incidents in junior hockey, and  other pages that reveal the  wastefulness in government  spending. He may even move  me, or us, to try to do  something to correct these  foolish doings.

"Seventeen sailors, aged  six to 46, received their certificates of competency last  Friday afternoon in a  ceremony at Armour's  Beach," said Fleet Captain  Dave Smethurst.  The instructor, Ian  MacKenzie of Vancouver, and  his assistant supplied a half  dozen Olympic class dinghies  (13 foot Lasers) to use in the  course. He has already given  courses this summer in  Kelowna, Summerland, Hudson's Hope, and White Rock,  and goes from here to Powell  River.  The Gibsons Yachting club  is very grateful to Art McGinnis of the Gibsons Marina for  his generosity in providing a  substitute chaser boat when  the instructor's own boat  broke down.  HOPKINS CELEBRATION  Hopkins Landing, eighty  years old this year, celebrated  the anniversary in a huge  barbecue-picnic the weekend  before last.  Organized by Joyce  Smethurst and Nancy Brodie  and assisted by a host of  helpers, the 180 or more guests  enjoyed salads, baked  potatoes, beef sliced from two  monstrous roasts each a full  hindquarter, and a bountiful  supply of desserts.  "As the news of the  barbecue flashed around, requests for tickets came from  the many folk who have ever  lived here or spent their summers in the community," said  a spokesman. "We will use the  proceeds to repair our community swim float, and to  repair winter damage to our  promenade."  Hopkins Landing is very  proud of this community-  owned walkway or promenade  and grateful to those who had  the foresight to include it in  the original subdivision. This  heritage now is controlled by  the Hopkins Landing Water  Improvement District.  Halfmoon  Bay  Happenings  by Ruth Forrester, 885-2418  COLLET7TE AIRLIFT  People have been wondering  what was going on with the  helicopter making so many trips  over Halfmoon Bay last week.  Apparently the household  goods of Mr & Mrs Collette  were being moved by helicopter  from Merry Island Lighthouse  to the government dock at Halfmoon Bay.  From there, the goods were  transferred to a U-Haul truck,  to be moved to Hedley where  the Collettes are taking up  residence upon retirement from  the lighthouse. Our good wishes  go with the Collettes.  VIP'S VISIT  Mayor Gordon Campbell of  Vancouver, his wife and family  were noticed enjoying a vacation at Damp Bay on Redrooffs. Hope they managed to  catch a salmon pr two while  they were there.  Another visitor on Friday  was Premier Bill Vander Zalm.  Don't know why he was in the  vicinity or with whom he met.  If you have spotted any VIPs,  or have some visiting with you,  be sure to let Luella know!  COUGAR SIGHTED  Joyce Kolibas and her husband were surprised to come  across a cougar while walking  on the beach in West Sechelt.  The animal was not a bit wary  and continued about its business. Best keep your eye on  your wee ones should they be  playing around that area.  LOCAL WEDDING  There was a very picturesque  wedding last weekend at the little church on Redrooffs, when  Don Pye performed the marriage ceremony for Wendy Hall  and Danny Lang.  Wendy is the daughter of the  Halls of Cooper Road in Welcome Woods. Many friends  from the Lower Mainland, Ontario and Calgary joined to wish  the happy young couple well.  The reception followed at  Welcome Beach Community  Hall.  886^2^25;   Tues>-f=ri���lQ^  A collection of old photos  taken in Hopkins as far back  as 1907 was assembled for  display by Jim and Ian Thomson. Eric Thomson, the dad  and granddad of these two,  was long a resident of  Hopkins, and well known as  the lawyer who would expertly  see to the conveyancing of  property in the district. In the  early years, Eric Thomson  found it easier to row to Gibsons than to take the trail.  And he continued to walk or  row for the many years that he  lived in Hopkins Landing.  The organizers wish to  thank the proprietors of the  Cedars Pub for roasting the  haunches of beef for the  barbecue.  Coast News, August 24,1987  7.

Penny Fuller photo  At Gibsons Council  Gibsons scrambles for loopholes  "Arcade games have violent  type situations which hype up  rebellious kids," said Alderman Norm Peterson at the  Tuesday, August 18 Gibsons  Council meeting in an attempt  to have Alan Carlow denied a  business license for just such an  establishment in the Sea-View  Plaza.  At the previous weeks planning meeting, it had been recommended that the license be  denied. Mayor Strom and  Aldermen Peterson and Maxwell   were   for   denial   while  Aldermen Kunstler and Dixon  took the position that they  could not prejudge and that  since the area was zoned for  business, the license should be  granted. In order to legally  deny the license, one alderman  would have to change their  mind.  But the surprise Qame when  Alderman Bob Maxwell  withdrew his support from  Peterson. "I must recognize  public opinion," he said after  he heard the results of a poll  done by the Town. Planner  SHARE OUR EXCITEMENT!

In a subsequent telephone interview with Sea-View Plaza  owner Don Adam, he stated  that there were no problems  with the arcade operating, in  fact he said the young people  enhanced the premises. "One  young man is. sweeping the  parking lot right now in order  to earn some money to play  some games," he said. Adam  was erroneously identified last  week by this reporter as the  license applicant as well as an's'  was added to his name.  Gramma's Marina Pub also  sent council frantically searching for loopholes in their  bylaws last Tuesday. Owner  Chris Danroth wants to add on  to his premises so he had  engineers draw up the required  plans as per bylaw requirements and received .approval in principal from the  Building Inspector and Town  Planner. Because the addition  would modify the traditional  view of the 'Beachcomber's  corner', Planner Rob Buchan  brought it forward to Council  as information only.  "It has far greater impact  than I had anticipated," said  Mayor Diane Strom. The.  previous week Building Inspec-"  tor Ralph Jones had been instructed to take photos and to  draw in the planned addition to  attempt to ascertain if any view  was lost.  "This five corners is the  focal point of Gibsons," said  Alderman Maxwell.  "Personally, I think it would  improve it," said Alderman  Dixon, "It might give some incentive to other buildings on  that side of the street the condition of which is deplorable."  Building Inspector Ralph  Jones pointed out that there  was not actually a building permit applied for and that all the  drawings were not yet in.  Owner Chris Danroth differed. He thought he had applied for a permit. "All the  drawings are in. All have been  completed and handed in," he  said.  The question of adequate  parking was raised. "There are  12 spaces in the parking  garage," said Planner Buchan,  "It has more than enough."  "There are 75 seats. It needs  15 spaces under the bylaw,"  said Clerk-Administrator Goddard.  "There are a total of 22  spaces there," said Danroth,  "The requirement is only 17."  Then came discussion on  how height could be interpreted  in respect to the bylaws. Gramma's Pub is built on a steep  slope and has several levels.  Copper  cable thefts  During the last few months a  culprit or culprits have been  responsible for the theft of  some copper cable from Port  Mellon pulp mill.  About 50 to 60 feet of  SVi-inch cable was stolen, and  since it weighs between 20 and  30 pounds per foot, it probably  took several persons or a fork  lift to remove it from the site.  It is believed that the thieves  will attempt to melt the copper  down, or have already done so,  to sell to scrap yards.  The cable was part of an expensive operation for a possible  future expansion of the mill's  power site.  If you know anything about  the theft, call Crirhestoppers at  886-TIPS. You may be eligible  for a cash reward and anonymity is guaranteed.  "I questioned average height  over a month ago," said Maxwell.  "This application is over a  year old," interjected Danroth.  Planner Rob Buchan again  explained that the only reason  for introducing the matter was  for information only and the  Council went on to new  business.

John Burnside photo  Pender Harbour  Music Society  by Ann Barker  To some it is a dream come  true. To others, a wonder of  achievement.  But to all of us it is a  marvellous addition to a  beautiful place to live, meaning  that we'll be able to experience  live music, music in the making,  music for our children to learn,  to be a part of, and to listen to,  and music for us adults to learn,  to be a part of, and to listen to.  We can all help to make our  new music society something to  be proud of and to be an active  thriving organization. It can only enrich an already good life in  Pender Harbour.  The Pender Harbour Music  Society has come to be through  the work of a few dedicated  people who realize the musical  potential in the area. Fortunately the building needed for such  an enterprise is available in the  largest of the old forestry  buildings at the head of the  government dock at Madeira  Park. It becomes part of the  new arts complex in the recently  named Markle S. Myers Regional Park, with the art  gallery, the library, and the  Serendipity Playschool.  The aims of the Pender Harbour Music Society are to administer the building for the use  of the School of Music, the  Harbour Lights Dance Band,  the Community Choir, and the  Junior Choir. Besides this, the  society will take memberships,  hold meetings with entertainment, bring artists and generally  foster musical education and activity in the area.  A commercial harmony  course through Capilano College is the first endeavour for  this year sponsored by the  School of Music. Held one  night a week, it is a university  credit course.  The band program, already  in place, will be expanded and  there will be an early childhood  music program based on the  Kodaly-Orff method for three  to six year olds.  A study session is already in  progress on Thursday nights to  learn the rudiments of music  theory. Beginning August 26th,  probably, there will be a beginner's session covering all aspects  of music theory more slowly.  The Pender Harbour Music  Society is currently being  registered with the Societies Act  and can accept membership  dues from anyone wishing to  enhance or promote musical  education. Annual family  membership is $15 and an individual membership is $10.  Nostalgic  evening  of Elvis  It was only a year ago that  Randy 'Elvis' Friskie took the  giant step from unknown singer  to the top cabaret act in  Western Canada when he managed to get a one week engagement at Expo'86. His tribute to  Elvis received - such an overwhelming response, that Expo  officials booked him until the  end of the fair.  Since then the bookings have  been keeping Friskie playing to  packed houses all over BC. Sunshine Coast residents will have  the opportunity to enjoy a  nostalgic evening listening to  songs that Elvis made popular  throughout his career, next  Thursday when Randy Friskie  appears for one night at  Elphie's Cabaret in Gibsons.

V7J 3HS.  by Peter Trower  It's that time again. Writers,  both amateur and professional,  and those who just like books,  converge on Sechelt's Greenecourt Centre for the fifth consecutive year. The Festival of  the Written Arts has become an  eagerly anticipated event for  both locals and visitors alike, a  chance to meet old friends,  make new ones, listen to many  experts discourse on their  various areas of expertise and  generally have a rewarding  weekend..  Yvonne and I head out early  on Friday, picking up her  daughter, Terri, along the way.  We are anxious to catch the first  speaker, Beth Hill, whose areas  of historical interest parallel our  own. Sechelt is festive with banners and signs proclaiming the  gathering of the scribes. At  Greenecourt, where a huge tent  has been erected, there is  already a sizable crowd. The  main hall is packed with people.  There are many familiar faces.  We take our seats and settle  down to listen to Beth Hill.  Beth is introduced by local  actress, Sandie McGinnis. She  proves to be a mature lady of  great charm and vivacity with a  relaxed speaking manner. She  informs us modestly that this is  the first time she has actually  been paid to speak.  Beth begins by telling us  something   about   her   back-  estiva  ground. Originally from Ontario, her first years in BC were  spent working as a librarian and  raising a family. Twenty-five  years ago, she, her husband,  Ray and their two children,  moved to the Gulf Islands. Here  she developed a great interest in  coastal prehistory. This led to a  year at Cambridge University, a  Certificate in Prehistoric Archeology, numerous trips up the  BC coast with her husband in  search of rock carvings and  eventually, a book: Indian  Petroglyphs of the Pacific Northwest. Beth illustrates her  petroglyph expeditions with a  series of slides of various sites,  spiced with amusing commentary. She points out the odd  similarity between these carvings and those found along the  coast of Russia.  Beth goes on to describe the  genesis of her subsequent  books: The Remarkable Worid  of Frances Barkley, Upcoast  Summers and Sappers. (The  research for the first title required a trip to England in  search of Frances Barkley's  descendants). She employs the  same slide/talk technique to illustrate these latter projects.  The whole presentation is very  entertaining  Afterwards, we get a chance  to chat with Beth. I give her a  copy of a review of Sappers,  written by my friend, Montague  Royal, which she hasn't seen.

Fri. & Sat.,  Aug. 28 & 29  Members & Guests Welcome  Raffle  Used Guys will do a benefit dance for the Gibsons Landing Theatre Project this Saturday at Roberts  Creek Community Hall.  Diane Evans photo  Used Guys band  Once upon a time, guitarist  and singer Richard Price started  a band for his and his cohorts'  musical expression.  The band, short a guitarist  J for a New Year's gig, commissioned David Morgan through  whose leadership "Used Guys"  went from the kitchen to the  basement!  Over time, with the addition  of percussionist John Paulin,  saxophonist Ross Barrett,  vocalist Bob Zornes and bassist  Kevin Shepherd, the present incarnation of "Used Guys" was  formed.  Used Guys play an impressive  array of music from psychedelic  hard rock to mellow Caribbean  rhythms, as well as a few  distinctive originals.  But the band is really at home  when the mix of Bob's faithful  renditions of late 60's acid-rock  lyric, Ross' sax and David's  lead guitar entwine over John,  Kevin and Richard's insistent  backing, joining in controlled  psychedelic fervour.  Who are those Used Guys?  They are: Richard Price,  band originator, a self-taught  guitarist hailing from Manitoba  who has played many clubs in  several musical contexts. A man  keen on traditional forms, from  folk to Texas blues, he's a student of styles. This is especially  evident on his burning slide  solos.     .,...,.,..  The bass boom of Used Guys  is Kevin Shepherd, who serves  double duty as the band's  "techno-organizer". Born in  London, England, Kevin has  played guitar and piano since  the age of 10, took up double  bass in high school, then on to  electric bass. Acting as the glue  between the percussive and  melodic elements, Kevin's style  is solid, with a fat tone.  Bob Zorne's job is nailing  down the lyrical end of things.  Originally from Seattle, Bob  has sung since his choir days.  His control over many styles of  lyric is evident in his refreshing  soulful delivery. Bob says: "Being on stage singing is next best  to singin' in a 1955 Chev Del-  Ray."  Used Guys' lead guitar job is  done by David Morgan. Also a  Seattle native, David has played  trumpet and guitar since he was  nine. Since high school he has  mixed studying jazz and playing  in touring pop bands in the U.S.  and Canada. He studied composition and arranging in Seattle, as well as teaching there,  making him a natural for  musical director.  He says: "Used Guys is made  up of such disparate elements.  It's more like mixing than directing."  The energetic percussion side  of their sound is produced by  John Paulin. A musician virtually all his life, John plays  guitar, bass and all manner of  percussion. He has toured and  played in many bands, including a stint as a jazz-rock  bassist for two years and a  recording project. More than  just a drummer, he oversees the  rhythm drive "shots" for each  tune. He has mesmerized many  rooms during his solo on San-  tana's Ko-Bop-Bop with his  variations and stylistic punch.

The chance to have dinner at the  Creekhouse Restaurant was snapped up immediately. My  friend and I arrived filled with eager anticipation. We were  seated at a lovely quiet little table.  As we studied the menu, we tucked into the warm,  crispy French mini-loaf and sipped a very pleasant dry  white wine. Our hostess was very charming and helpful as  we struggled with our choices. The menu is vast and,  varied.  My friend chose the Blinickis au beurre as an appetizer.  When it arrived it was a meal in itself. Piping hot crepes  stuffed with scallops, mushrooms, scallions, sour cream  and baked with herb butter and nestled together in a most  appealing presentation.  I chose the house salad which was a generous combination of garden fresh vegetables, tossed gently in a superb  creamy dressing.  For the main course, we opted to share la bourride  which was a provencal seafood platter with lobster,  prawns, cod and scallops in a spicy, creamy sauce. When it  arrived on our enormous platter we were momentarily  staggered. The dish was most appealing to the eye and it  seemed a shame to spoil the artistic presentation. Finally  we each decided to start at one end of the platter and work  towards the middle.  The lobster and prawns peeked out from their shells.  There was a generous number of scallops, one of my  special favourites. The dish also included scallions, carrots, potatoes, leeks and mushrooms all carefully covered  with a spicy, creamy sauce. It was a wonderful blending of  flavours and textures, really a delightful dish.  Of course, I had to try the dessert. My friend opted for a  steaming serving of Irish coffee whilst I tucked gleefully  into fresh blueberries en glaze over a baked custard served  on a tender, flaky crust. It was exquisite.  We lingered over generous cups of richly brewed coffee.  The atmosphere was most pleasant and we were reluctant  to depart. Finally we went forth into the cool night air  happy and satisfied after a most delightful dining experience.

Other results: first flight winner Pat Vaughan, net 62 (Pat  broke 90 for the first time, with  an 87 gross); second, Aleta  Giroux with a 69; third, Dody  Grant, net 70.  Second flight winner Eleanor  Dann had a net 66; second was  Wilma Sim with 70; third, Jay  Townsend also with 70. Third  flight winner Bev Taber netted  70, second was Leila Comrie  with 72,third was Marg Ar-  buckle, 72.  Final rounds of this three-  day, 54-hole event will be  played Tuesday and Wednesday  of this week. Let's get out and  support the ladies, and see some  excellent golf!  In nine-hole ladies play, Beth  Niddery had low net 32, followed by Kay Matheson with 33  and Lorna Huggins with 3616..  Low putts were recorded by  Adie Gayton with 15, Lee Redman with 16 and Marg Hunter  with 18.  The Sunshine Coast nine-hole  team edged out their Pender  Harbour counterparts 38-34 in a  two-ball best ball event.  The Monday night mixed twilighters played a tic-tac-toe  event which ended in a tie for  first between the teams of Marg  Arbuckle and George Bayford,  Louise Dorais and Jack White.  There was a four-team tie for  second: Lee Redman and Bill  Skelcher, Ev Cooper and Ed  Pinkerton, Barb Relton and  Walt Faulafer, Faye Lewis and  Elsie Cupit. The team of Aileen  Pinkerton, Lila Chambers and  Eleanor Thompson recorded  the fewest putts.  While east is east and west is  west, in senior men's play it was  no surprise that west was best,  as those of us from the right  side of the coast triumphed over  "the others" by a score of 13 to  . 10. It is refreshing to note that-  the losers provided the winners  with a small libation, after  which an excellent repast was  enjoyed by victors and vanquished alike.  In team play, the foursome of  Andy Gray, Logan Wright, Jim  Buntain and George Townsend  were first with 139I/i. In second  place were Fred Dowdie, Vic  Vaughan and Jack Knaus with  140 Vi and third were Ed Pinkerton, Guy Lewail, Art Dorais  and Laurie Evans with 141.  Closest to the pin was Art  Dorais.  Pender Harbour ladies  Golf championships  The Pender Harbour ladies  club championship playoffs  August 13, 14 and 15 saw a  good turnout of keen competitors. Verna Belland came  in with a winning low gross  score for the championship  flight.  Jessie Rietze took low net.  Winners in the first flight were  Blanche Paton, low gross and  Evelyn Tapio low net. Second  flight honours went to Shirley  Dumma and Elsie Colling.  The ladies topped off the  tourney with one of their  special luncheons and Verna  was presented the impressive  ladies club trophy. Congratulations to Verna and all  the ladies who participated.  Following along on the  tournament trail, LaFarge  held their annual tournament  on August 16. The big winners  for the day were Gordy Scott  taking the men's low gross and  to keep it all in the family  Marty Scott took the ladies  trophy. Following a great day  of golf the LaFarge group and  their friends enjoyed a splendid dinner and social gathering.  Twenty-two stalwarts turned out for men's day on  August 15. Winners with low  gross scores were George  Langham, Harry Langham  and Jim Menzies. Low net  George Grout, Bill Lawrenuk  and Terry Dougan.  The mixed twilight on  August 17 was a "two ball"  alternate shot event. When the  results were tallied the team of  Rob Carey, Roy Cumbers and  Randy Legge took first place.  Tied for second were the teams  of Lois Haddon, Murrell  Smith and Dutch Hadden,  Evelyn Tapio.

I am excited to,  report four of the riders placed  well in their divisions.  Caroline Tait, riding Fire  Fox, won the green division.  Caroline, fairly; new at horse  riding, was awarded a summer  horse blanket and a trophy.  Sara Puchalski, the youngest  member of the group, deservedly took first place in the training  division. Sara is a veteran in this  sport and this was quite an  achievement for her. She also  won a horse blanket and  trophy.  Jeanine Ellingham placed  third in the preliminary division, the most advanced division offered at Maple Ridge.  Jeanine's third place qualifies  her to join the Three Day Event  team participating in the 1987  Western Canada Summer  Games. Good luck, Jeanine!  The last rider, who I feel  deserves a special mention, is  Leslie White. She placed 10th  out of 50 in the pre-training  division. Congratulations to all  the riders. We wish you continued success throughout the  eventing season.  I'd like to note that Jeanine  has returned from the Western  Canada Summer Games in  Regina with a team gold. Congrats again Jeanine, for a job  well done!  As a final note, I'd like to invite the residents of our Coast  to an Open House and Barbecue on Sunday, September  13.

Ijptfrectors,  Sunshine   Coast   Regional  I District, Sechelt, B.C.  "Dear Sirs:  It has been brought to the attention of the Area 'B'  Ratepayers Association that the  Regional Board has given permission to a group of people  with trailers to occupy the  Cooper's Green Regional Day  Park for the Labour Day  weekend.  This action of the SCRD to  allow this park to be taken over  by campers is a precedent that  the people of Area 'B' would  not like to see happen.  It is requested that the permission granted to the trailer  group be rescinded so that the  park can be kept for the purpose intended.  G.D. Berthelet  Acting President  Area 'B' Ratepayers  Beach access needed  Editor:  ;rSome waterfront dwellers in  Roberts Creek ��� not many,  jthank God ��� need reminding  |h' at in this Canada of ours the  ^shoreline and beaches are public  property, not private.  <!'. If our government lived up to  its obligation to maintain and  signpost the many overgrown  (to the point of being unknown  to most residents) public  pathways to the beach, it would  help reinforce the fact that  everyone,not just those lucky  enough to have bought water  front long ago, has the right to  be on, and use, our beautiful,  God-given beaches ��� up to and  well past (16 'chains' past, I  believe) the high tide mark.

To my  ^knowledge, no local rugby  ���group (and we are the only BC  ifUgby union-sanctioned team  ���bin the coast) has received your  hospitality.  !r For your information, our  games are held on Saturdays  from September to April. The  teams come up on Saturdays,  we play the game, and we  socialize at our clubhouse.  As for your article, we would  appreciate some specifics to  baick your observations so that  pfe may become less confused.  jiiSports organizations, in  jjjfcheral, are amateur in nature  *J' they rely on community  support. Rugby, particularly so.  Sporting groups do worry about  image and try to police the sanctioned activities of their  members from within.  The Gibsons Rugby & Athletic Club does so with consistency. Furthermore, with the  support of the community, we  have been able to give back to  the community a number of  projects, such as raising money  for Rick Hansen, giving money  to the Sea Cavalcade committee, renovating our clubhouse to  eliminate neighbourhood noise,  painting the outside of the  clubhouse, and in future, we  will be landscaping the area to  enhance property values.  Thus, we are prepared to take  action within the club, should  your specific information warrant it. Should your statements  in the Coast News not be founded in fact, perhaps an apology is  in order.

Grant Gill, President  Gibsons Rugby & Athletic Club  Editor:  For the past two years there  has been much said and written  about developments in the  USSR.  We have become familiar  with the terms Glasnost,  openness and Perestroika  restructuring. We have also seen  peace and disarmament initiatives by the Soviet Union that  have given new life to the Vienna Arms Limitation Talks and  hope to millions for a nuclear  free future.  Jack Phillips was the Moscow  correspondent for the Canadian  and Pacific Tribunes for three  years. He travelled widely  throughout the Soviet Union,  from Chernobyl to Siberia, and  witnessed first hand the social  and economic changes taking  place in the USSR today.  Jack Phillips will be the guest  speaker at a public meeting Friday, August 28, at 7:30 pm in  the Marine Room below the  Gibsons Library.  Everyone is invited to hear  Jack speak on what is going on  in the USSR.  Walter Murray  When your RRSP ends, you  can still shelter your money  from taxes.

Coast News, August 24,1987  11  by Shirley Hall, 883-1154  The Thrift Store, under the  capable management of Doris  Jackson, has been a busy attraction this summer, and I thought  you might like to know  something about its operation.  First of all, you may wonder  why such a small community  can have such a well-stocked  store. One reason is that a  number of residents have  friends and family elsewhere  who save their goods for Eg-  mont's store. Another is that  other thrift stores in the area  pass on to our store goods that  they don't have enough space to  display.  Sometimes space becomes a  premium at Egmont, too. When  that happens, Doris bundles up  clothing, etc., and one of our  residents takes it up to Pemberton for the people there.  Nothing is wasted, or almost  nothing. When clothes come in  that are not in saleable condition, buttons and zippers are  removed and then the clothes go  in bags of rags. The jars of buttons are fun to get and to sort  through.  Besides selling donated items,  goods on consignment are also  stocked. This benefits local  residents who have items to sell  and the Thrift Store gets a small  amount. A small percentage is  #  charged, too, for selling the  delicious baked goods made by  some of the residents. This is a  source of supplementary income in the community but it is  also a service to visitors who can  get some homebaked goodies.  The store is open almost  every day depending on whether  or not Doris has a volunteer for  the day.  If you're in the area, be sure  to drop in. Proceeds from the  Thrift Store go to benefit Egmont community.  ANNOUNCEMENT  Lioness Bingo is this Wednesday, August 26 at 7 pm. Come  out and have some fun.  What's going on in the USSR?

Starting September 27  Pender Harbour  will be served by a new  "state-of-the-arf  electronic .switching  ���system.This will mean  a few service dranges.  New Dial Tone  You will notice a change in the sound  of the dial tone. This is normal.  Push ButtonTelephones  If you have a push button phone and it  is not yet connected to a B.C.Iel touch  calling line, you will experience some  service difficulties.To verify if you have  a touch calling line please check the  rental charge area of your telephone  bill for "Touch Calling Line Charge." If  this charge does not appear on your  bill please call our Customer Service  Office (toU-free) at 1-643-4242 for  residential telephones and 1-643-4141  for business telephones to arrange for  this service between 8:00 a.m. and  4:00 p.m, Monday to Friday.  Party Lines  This new switching system will now  allow our party line customers to call  another' 'party'' on their line by dialing  the seven digit number only. This  eliminates having to dial any other  digits or "code" numbers. Upon  hearing an intermittent tone, please  hang up your receiver, wait a  reasonable length of time, then lift the  receiver and talk.  Answering Machines  Customers who use answering  machines may also be somewhat  affected by this new system. If your  machine is set up for a "fixed message  length,'' you may find that it continues  to record even after your caller has  hung up.There may also be a  recorded message from the telephone  exchange asking you to "hang up." If  this occurs, we suggest that you  either switch your machine to a "voice  activated" mode, or readjust the  recording time on your machine.  Custom Calling  This new system makes available to  you B.C.Tel's Custom Calling features,  including Call Forwarding, Call Alert,  Three-Way Calling and Speed Calling.  For more information and monthly  rates, please contact your local B.C.  Tel office.  Improved Connections  When calling another customer who is  also being served by this new central  office facility, your connection will be  made almost immediately after the  last digit is dialed.  Calls to telephones served by nonelectronic facilities will take a few  seconds longer. You will no longer hear  clicking sounds as you dial. There will  be a "quiet" period for a few seconds  while the call is being processed ���  so don't hang up.. .wait for the call to  be completed.  Disconnection of the line will occur  when either you or the person you've  called hangs up. (Ifyou have extension  phones on your line and you wish to  move to another phone from the one  on which you've answered a call, don't  hang up the first phone until you've  picked up the second.)

Coast News, August 24,1987  by Ken Collins  Sechelt Alderman Len Herder was given a tour of the Jackson  Brothers Logging operation in Tuwanek Friday by General  Manager H.S. (Bobby) Braich in response to concerns raised by  local residents. Ken Collins photo  Sechelt alderman Len Herder  went to see for himself last Friday how Jackson Brothers Logging could clean up their act for  the Tuwanek residents ��� only  to find they were one step ahead  of him.  General manager H.S. (Bobby) Braich had hand-delivered a  letter dated August 6 to some 80  residents in Tuwanek.  "We are committed to being  a good corporate citizen and I  hope we can work together  towards a peaceful  coexistence," the letter states.  Braich said the company made  some concessions and wants to  develop good dialogue with the  community. He has cut down  the booming hours and there  will be no more early shift until  the hot weather season of 1988.  "At that time we will communicate our plans to yourselves," he wrote.  Braich has also offered the  services of the company to process the minutes of the Tuwanek  Ratepayers meetings, and offered the use of the company  photocopier to allow distribution to all members and concerned residents. He includes  Jackson Brothers Logging as a  concerned resident.  SEAT SALE  Toronto/Montreal from *329 Ret.

He was invited as a result of a  complaint brought to the task  force by alternate director Joan  Mahlman, regarding an exceptionally long delay in offloading an emergency vehicle  transporting a person to  hospital in Vancouver.  Yates explained that emergency vehicles and vehicles  transporting handicapped persons are always loaded onto the  ship first, if ferry personnel are  notified at the booth, and are  then parked next to the  elevator.  However, at Horseshoe Bay,  vehicles in front have to be  unloaded first. He suggested  that emergency vehicles should  put on their flashers to remind  the crew directing the unloading  that they need to get off quickly.  Director Wilson, who commutes to North Vancouver,  pointed out that he has seen  handicapped people waiting a  long time to use the ship's  elevator while able-bodied people were using it. He suggested a  sign be posted indicating the  elevator is provided for the use  of handicapped passengers.  Yates agreed that was a good  idea.  Before he left, Yates received  a compliment on the courteous  service provided on the  Horseshoe Bay-Langdale run.  Wilson said he had just completed a tour of Vancouver  Island, travelling on six different ferries, and of all of them  the crew on the local run were  the most courteous. A formal  letter will be sent to B.C. Ferries  mentioning this.  Yates also announced that  the current sailing schedule will  be kept in place until October  13.
