 Legislative Library  Parliament Buildings  Victoria, B.C. V8V 1X4  88.8  Published on the Sunshine Coast  25* per copy on news stands    September 14,1987   Volume 41    Issue 37  amammmM  Credit cards involved  Travel scam on Coast  by Joel Johnstone  The Honourable John L. Savage, Syd Heal, and his Worship Mayor Bud Koch enjoying themselves at  the opening banquet of the 4th Annual Sunshine Coast International Aquaculture Conference and Trade  Show; ���Ken CoUins photo  Fishfarmers gather  A scam just isn't a scam until  someone becomes a victim to it.  Given that, there are  numerous mail and telephone  con games operating in North  America thriving on the era of  the cashless sale. It's so easy...  just tell them your credit card  number and trust them to do  the accounting while you enjoy  the leisures of never leaving  home.  In the case of some free trips  and travel accomodations never  leaving home sometimes  becomes the reality.  Recently, . in the United  States, travel scams have reached such proportions the Federal  Trade Commission (FTC) there  has filed charges against three  travel companies. But actions  against similar operations have  proven to be difficult to put  together because they move  from state to state or operate in  Canada while based in the  United States.  According to the August,  1987, Issue (Vol. 22, No. 1) of  the Canadian Travel Courier,  FTC charges state the agencies  have sold 'millions of dollars of  Vacation Passport contracts  through the use of misleading  and deceptive sales pitches.'  They charge that the defendants  'obtained customer's credit card-  numbers under false pretenses  and billed consumer's accounts  without their authorization.'  The scams are far-reaching.  They operate all over the continent and some suspect they may  even be reaching unsuspecting  r nfoi'''V ' ii"  Conferences scores another success  by Ken Collins  The champagne flowed freely  as Sam Bowman of Moore-  Clark, manufacturers of fish  feed, warmly toasted the opening of the fourth annual Sunshine Coast International  Aquaculture Conference and  Trade Show at the Sechelt  Arena last Tuesday evening.  Two long rows of tables  presented a gourmet feast for  some 325 fishfarmers, bureaucrats and salesmen. "Believe me  we have enough food," announced maitre de Atti, "in fact  we have enough food for  seconds."  "I had to truck an entire  restaurant in from Vancouver,"  said Wharf manager Gerhard  Felgenhauer, "The chef, Paul  Clayson, has been up since early  morning preparing food." And  it was not only seafood.  Felgenhauer said he had requests for meats. "Some of the  fishfarmers have eaten so much  fish they get tired of it," he  said.  Aquaculture Association  President Syd Heal, in his  welcoming address, ensured  that all were aware of the contribution made by Conference  Co-ordinator Dora Glover. In  spite of the extravagant show of  opulence, she explained to the  Coast News the need for careful  control over seating. Local press  were cautioned against consuming food. Sechelt Alderman  Ann Langdon was present only  as a representative of Master  Marine. There was no room for  Sechelt aldermen. Mayor Bud  Koch, even though he did not  speak at the banquet, was invited as was Regional District  Chairman Jim Gurney. Lynne  Triffon, a reporter from the  Surrey publication Country Life  was invited. There were no signs  of provincial or national media.  When all invitees were fully  filled and jovial, the  Honourable John L. Savage,  B.C. Minister of Agriculture  and Fisheries, gave the opening  address.  "We are committed to do  whatever we can to help this industry," said Savage. He ex  plained that the recent  moratorium, now lifted, was  only to make sure what they  were doing was right. "By the  year 2000, aquaculture has the  potential of surpassing the commercial sector," he said.  He said that it was  Norwegian expertise that gave  us the help we needed. "We can  be thankful for that," he stated,  "I believe we can see 3000 to  4500 jobs created." He also said  he could see summer commercial fishermen being involved in  fishfarming during the winter.  He mentioned the self sufficiency of aquaculture. "Agriculture is highly subsidized," he  said, "I do not see that in  aquaculture."  He  expressed pride in our  water. "We have water as good  as anywhere in the world,"  Savage said, "There is plenty of  it coming off the mountains."  He sees the development of  the industry dependent upon  good brood stock. "We believe  we will have disease free eggs in  a few years."  Commercial fishermen were  Please turn to page 10  Wilson tries to curtail  SCRD dining expenses  An attempt by Area A Director Gordon Wilson to curtail  dining expenses incurred by  regional directors was defeated  at last Thursday's regional  board meeting when only  municipal representatives Peterson and Kolibas supported his  motion.  "No one will argue but that  you have to eat," Wilson told  the regional board in presenting  his motion, "but the taxpayers  should not have to pay for your  food and definitely not your liquor."  Wilson's motion attempted  to have travel and food expenses curtailed except for off  the Coast and to have off the  Coast expenses paid for receipts  instead of the $75 per diem  presently allowed.  Wilson made note of the fact  that he personally had consistently refrained from charging expenses.  The Area A director made  public the fact that so far in  1987 directors have charged  $9,900 on travel and $4,800 on  dining expenses.  There was static silence  throughout the boardroom  after Wilson made his motion.  "It will cost the taxpayers  more," Chairman Jim Gurney  suggested with some appearance  of nervousness. Gurney maintained that if he were to itemize  his off the Coast expenses the  bills would amount to more  than $75 per day..  Director Brett McGillivray of  Area D spoke clearly in favour  of defeating Wilson's motion  and objected to what he perceived as 'implication of abuse'.  "All those bills reflect is the  . amount of time spent at the  Regional   Board,"   asserted  McGillivray.  Directors Shaske, McGillivray, Gurney, Marsden and  Connor voted to defeat  Wilson's motion.  In other business, Director  Marsden reacted angrily when  Wilson asked for an enumeration of Area C, Marsden's area,  which has been all but taken up  in the District Municipality of  Sechelt.  "I'm investigating this matter  myself," Marsden told the  Board but the Board decided to  write to Victoria to ask for an  official enumeration.  Shortly after that Alderman  Norm Peterson of Gibsons was  mildly chastised by Chairman  Jim Gurney when he inquired  about the possibility of a street  light at the corner of Reed and  Chamberlin Roads.  "That motion should come  from Director Shaske. It's his  area," ruled Gurney.  Director Shaske, Chairman  of the Finance Committee,  wasn't sure if the expense could  be justified.  "How much would a light  cost?" inquired Alderman  Peterson.  "About $100 a year," said  Shaske, adding that he would  need evidence that a light was  really needed before he could  make such a motion.  Gilker Park timber  to pad budget  Although the fiscal year is only half gone, the Parks budget  of the Sunshine Coast Regional District is already gone, but  that doesn't concern Area E Director Jim Gurnery.  While the financial statements released at last week's  meeting of the Finance Committee indicated a fairly standard  balance with some departments being slightly over-budget  and others slightly under, the Parks budget was conspicuous  in the fact that 106 percent of it has already been spent.  Gurney pointed out that there was some income still to be  received from the sale of logs taken out of Cliff Gilker Park,  but Administrator Larry Jardine warned that even with that  additional money, Parks will probably end the year with a  $20,000 deficit  people here on the Sunshine  Coast.  Bill Lennon of Gibsons  Travel Agency Ltd.; believes at  least one lady here fell prey to  the 'free trip' offer she got in  the mail.  "I had a client who called to  get some information, Sunday,  who mentioned she'd won free  accomodation at the destination  she was travelling to," and  because he had seen a recent  NBC program outlining the  dangers of giving someone else  your credit card number, Lennon asked her if she had. She  told him she had, so he told her,  "If I were you I would check  this out right away."  The lady, whose name remains unknown, said she would  call her bank.  The nature of her potential  misfortune has been partially  shared by others here interested  enough to check out their free  prize.  Nikki Weber of Sechelt says,  "I got this card in the mail telling me I had won free accomodation, six days and five  nights in Disneyland or five  days and four nights in Mexico,  and that for further information please phone (the given  number) at the time listed on the  card. The card said I had to pay  in advance and I would be reimbursed for the accomodation.  "Just to be sure I phoned  earlier than the card said and  asked them 'What's the catch?  They said 'there is no catch  madam, you pay your own way  down and back and you get six  days and five nights in a  hotel'."  Weber says they told her then  the deal was for two people and .  the more she talked to them the  better the deal sounded but "I.  refused to give my credit card  number because I'd heard of  something like this before."  She says they told her to take -  her time, "So I decided that I ���  would."  Since then, Weber says she ;  has spoken to two people who;^  have received the same cards in;:  the mail - one in Sechelt and one:7  in Halfmoon Bay. -L  "One thing I'm really con-;7  cerned about," Lennon says,;;  "is people living on the Sun- ���  shine Coast who get calls like :  this thinking valid agencies here.;  are similar to these travel;  wholesalers. 7;  "Travel agencies don't call::  (or mail you a card) and give*  you a free trip and ask for your 7  credit card number. It's booked ���  through the travel agency of.7  your choice and you are billed-  directly. We're legal travel agen-';  cies and we don't want people ;  to get nervous about dealing :  with travel agencies."  In the case of the lady who '  called, Lennon says her bank  would get in touch with the  bank issuing the charge to the  card and tell them they are not  paying, leaving it to that bank  to deal with the person trying to  debit the card's account.  RCMP Constable Derek  Crawford (Gibsons) says, "In  this type of operation you're  looking at big business type of  crime. We have a commercial,  crimes unit to deal with major  business frauds," and, "This a  new field the RCMP have been  getting into in the last 15.  years...computer crimes,  business fraud, and so on.  "At   the   very   least,";.  Crawford  says,   "inform  the:  load police office as to what's.:  happening.   Maybe   it   is   an  isolated thing but they shouldn't  feel that way. You never know.  what can be useful. One phone  call may be that little bit extra  which   may   tell   the   police  something."  Helicopter found  During the afternoon of September 6, the fishing vessel  Terry & Gail pulled a helicopter up from approximately 300  metres of water in Jervis Inlet at the mouth of Vanguard Bay.  The Bell Jet Ranger helicopter had crashed several years  ago due to a power loss. The pilot had managed to climb out  unharmed and was rescued by a passing boat.  Miracles can happen and last weekend Jehovah's Witnesses  demonstrated how a unified community can build upon their faith  by adding to it a new hall in three days. ���Joel Johnstone photo  / ������ 2.  Coast News, September 14,1987  wiaWTs ofiH�� bov  /���  ,  On anonymity  It is not our policy to refer to letters addressed to a different publication but the recent rant from 'V.N. Egan' is  an exception in that in addition to slandering the Coast's  peace groups on the subject of the Tools for Peace aid to  Nicaragua, V.N. Egan, commenting on a picture in the  Coast News, wrote elsewhere because he asserted we  would not print his letter.  Our editorial department could remember receiving no  letter from V.N. Egan and were puzzled as to how such an  assertion could be made. We failed to find any trace of a  V.N. Egan in the Gibsons phone book going back to 1984.  No V.N. Egan appears on the voters' list for the  Municipality of Gibsons. The Gibsons Post Office has no  record of any V.N. Egan.  We phoned our opposition. They told us they'd checked  the phone book too and failed to find a V.N. Egan but  decided to run the letter anyway. They also told us they  had run a picture of the same salmon barbecue which occasioned the bile of the mythical Mr. Egan but were not  subjected to the same abuse.  This business of abuse being anonymously written and  published is potentially a very serious matter and vigilance  must be exercised if every malcontent is not going to be  free to abuse his neighbours under the cloak of anonymity.  We made this point to our opposition and they apparently  intend to tighten up their procedures.  This is by no means the first time anonymous material  has been published. We see such non-existent groups as the  Sunshine Coast Elector's Association and non-existent  concerned citizen's groups taking out advertisements at  election time. We recently had a self-styled Silent Majority  advertise on behalf of provincial legislation.  To his credit, Alderman Mike Shanks has spoken out  against the practice of anonymity in advertising, perceiving  it to be a real threat to fair dealing and honest debate.  As for V.N. Egan, we are not going to speculate as to  his true identity but we suspect that the readers thought he  had gone to China. If there is a V.N. Egan we will be  pleased to run his picture in the paper next week.  Slick move  We wonder now the good people of Roberts Creek will  react to the news that the trees cut down in Cliff Gilker  Park have been sold and the money is to go to balance the  Sunshine Coast Regional Board Parks budget overspent in  other areas.  Let's see: the West Howe Sound Recreation Commission gets approximately $25,000 from Roberts Creek  towards the Gibsons Swimming Pool. It gives back  $10,000 for the cost of logging the park, then takes tens of  thousands of dollars from the sale of timber to balance  their spending elsewhere.  Director McGillivray, when next you shake hands with  Chairman Jim Gurney we suggest that you count your  fingers afterwards.  ...from the files of the COAST HEWS  5 YEARS AGO  For the second time this year, ferry service to the Sunshine Coast is threatened with major cuts.  The Village of Gibsons is being sued for $55,000 as the  result of an accident in April in the harbour when an aircraft, belonging to Tyee Airways struck an unmarked  breakwater which was under construction and not visible  at high tide. The aircraft sank but was later recovered.  Sechelt  District  Chamber of Commerce writes to  Minister of Municipal Affairs, Jack Heinrich, accusing  the SCRD Board as being irresponsible.  10 YEARS AGO  Charles Lee heads a deputation called CARE (Citizens  Against the Rape of the Environment). The deputation attended a Sechelt Council meeting to challenge the lease  of one and one-half acres of land at Wilson Creek to the  Aero Club. On behalf of CARE, Lee contended that low-  flying aircraft are a public nuisance and before a lease  agreement was signed, a stipulation should be included  to prevent planes from flying under the regulation height.  CARE demands the resignation of Alderman Frank  Leitner of Sechelt Council and demands that Sechelt  Council demand Leitner's resignation or the group will  take the matter up with the Department of Municipal Affairs.  20 YEARS AGO  Work on the building of a new administration facility  for the school board has been delayed pending discussions with the regional board about a building to be used  jointly.  Frank Fuller takes on the job of Adult Education Director for School District #46.  30 YEARS AGO  Miss A.G. Jervic and Miss M. Mclntyre of Madeira Park  got a surprise while fishing in Bargain Harbour. They  hooked onto what they thought was an unusually large  octopus. After half-an-hour they brought up an eight foot  octopus to the surface, they cut their line and left the  area.  40 YEARS AGO  Pender Aquatic Club holds a very successful regatta.  Gulf Lines Ltd. announces an improved service for Gibsons. There will be two sailings north bound from Vancouver and two sailings southbound from Gibsons.

We have no quarrel with the  travel expenses. $9,900 seems a  little high but it is an elongated  area and several directors have  considerable driving to do to get  to meetings and their expenses  so incurred are legitimate expenses.  The $4,800 spend in eight  months of 1987 on dining~out is7  a different matter in my opinion. When one remembers that  the municipal representatives,  schooled in more rigorous  economic practice, do not participate in the regular meals paid  for by taxpayers and that Director Wilson, to his credit, has  always bought his own dinner,  that means that five directors  are totalling $120 each per  month on subsidized dining.  Let's examine Director Brett  McGillivray's defence of the  practice:  "There is an implication that  there is some abuse to this,"  says McGillivray thoughtfully.  "All those bills reflect is the  amount of time spent at the  Regional Board."  If there was a trophy given  for fatuous earnestness McGillivray would win it every time.  Last Thursday, for example,  the directors met at three and  sauntered through a light Parks  Committee agenda.  At four,  Directors McGillivray and  Wilson arrived off the afternoon ferry from North Vancouver and the board obligingly  went over the material missed  for the two latecomers.  And so to the dinner at which  time Director John Shaske joined the party. Shaske never  makes it to afternoon meetings  but he always makes it in time  for the free meal. So much for  McGillivray's 'time spent at the  Regional Board'.  Now, God help me, I have  been contemplating the doings  of the local Regional Board for  more years than any sitting  director has been on it. I can  ; remember, in busier times than  these, when there was only one  administrator, only two planners, and when the directors  could get through their business  at evening sessions which obviated the necessity of dining  out at public expense on a  regular basis.  It is my contention that afternoon meetings are not necessary  on a regular basis. The Parks  Committee agenda could have  been gone through in a half  hour before the regular meeting  last week and our hard-working  directors could still have been in  Gilligan's before 10 pm.  The thing that started the  afternoon meetings was when  perennial Planning Chairman  Brett McGillivray instituted  what he has termed 'The Chairman's Briefing' at which time  the directors mull over the same  matters scheduled to be discuss  ed at a Planning Committee  meeting later that night. See  comment on fatuous earnestness above.  The directors got so fond of  their nice little dinners out that  they have them now on the flimsiest of committee pretexts, apparently.  It is my contention that there  is not only the implication of  abuse in Director Wilson's  defeated motion. What Wilson  has perceived and refrained  from participating in is an unquestioned abuse.  What must be remembered is  that power corrupts even good  and intelligent men and that the  clique of sitting directors who  always perform the same function year after year and always  vote in bloc has been so corrupted.  Ultimately it is the community that determines the standards  which will govern those in  public life and it is the voters  who will decide whether or not  this regular dining is or is not an  abuse and not Chairman Jim  Gurney or Director Brett  McGillivray.  In the past two years I have  made the suggestion to two sitting directors, Director Connor  and Director Wilson, that it  would be more appropriate if  the regional directors tightened  their belts and donated their  dining budget to the Food  Bank.  I still think it is a good idea.  Sonnet 3��  When to the sessions of sweet silent thought  I summon up remembrance of things past,  I sigh the lack of many a thing I sought,  And wish old woes new wail my dear time's waste.  Then can I drown an eye, unused to flow,  For precious friends hid in death's dateless night,  And weep afresh love's long-since cancelled woe,  And moan the expense of many a vanished sight.  Then can J grieve at grievances foregone,  And heavily from woe to woe tell o'er  The sad account of fore-bemoaned moan,  Which I new pay as if not paid before.  But if the while J think on thee, dear friend,  All losses are restored, and sorrows end.  William Shakespeare  Our faltering politicians  by James H. Tyner  Canada needs competent,  decisive leadership to meet  changing conditions. It does not  need the wavering government  it now has or the faltering politicians eager to replace it at the  next election.  When the Mulroney Government came to power it was going to change and reform many  things. The deficit was to be  reduced and soon eliminated by  reducing government spending,  the unemployment insurance  system and other social programs were to be reformed and  the crown corporations sold by  a harder, leaner government.  What did we get? A bigger,  softer more expensive government with little courage.  We see the Minister of  Fisheries and Oceans in answer  to a request from fishermen to  control the seal population  decline as such a step would be  politically unacceptable.  We see the Minister of  Employment deciding he  couldn't reform the unemployment insurance system because  no one could agree on what  should be done.  We see the Minister of  Finance not only failing to  materially reduce the deficit but  increasing taxation to cover rising government spending.  We see waffling on reform of  universal welfare schemes and  hesitation on privatization of  crown corporations.  In opposition we see the  Liberal Party split on policy and  uncertain about its leader. We  see the Liberal caucus supporting one course of action and  their leader another. Their performance on Cruise Missile  testing, the free trade talks,  privatization and the Meech  Lake Accord is anything but  reassuring.  The NDP is no better.  Over the years the NDP has  moved from socialism to practical politics basing its policy on  popular beliefs.  It has been reported that the  leader considers that with the  party leading in the popularity  polls it is time for a major  review of economic policies.  It looks like all the politicians  are prepared to soften policies  and belief to gain power.  The electorate have nowhere  to turn.  Although many of the electorate seem to have a good  understanding of the changing  times the politicians do not.  Many of us know that a  serious problem facing Canada  and the world is the disastrous  consequences of unabsorbed  carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. The excessive carbon  dioxide is primarily a product of  man's industrial activity and is  beyond the capability of the atmosphere to control. This carbon dioxide allows incoming  radiation from the sun but  blocks its escape into space. As  a result normal patterns of  precipitation are interrupted  and diminished, the effect being  to bring desert-like conditions  to many parts of the world.  The politicians seem unaware  of the situation.  Then there is acid rain causing great damage to many parts  of the country. Of course the  politicians have recognized this  problem and have approached  the US president who has put  the matter aside for further  study. Otherwise little has been  done or accomplished.  Problems created by the  movement of people from the  countryside to the cities and  those arising from the continuing advance of technology are  little understood. They are probably the basic causes underlying most of our economic difficulties. The politicians seem  little aware that technology has  made the old concepts obsolete  and with its continuing advance  in all sectors will make work a  social responsibility rather than  a personal necessity.  At the present time the  politicians wrestle with distribution - rushing first into inflationary measures then fleeing to  austerity - little realizing that  such matters of procedure can  be determined with accuracy  and precision by using the new  science of cybernetics.  Their present day answer is to  turn the whole thing over to the  private sector.  Finally there is the continuing  problem of finance which the  politicans continue to mismanage. The high annual  deficits and the support of high  interest rates are dangerous  policies pushing domestic and  foreign debt beyond management. The federal deficits, have  dominated the domestic financial markets and this coupled  with high interest rates used in  defending the dollar has encouraged offshore borrowing  by provinces, municipalities and  business.  Now foreign debt is so high .  (about $200 billion) that it  works directly against the policy  of a strong stable dollar. It now  takes over 20 percent of  Canada's export market to service the foreign debt.  The politicians should know  that continuing debt financing  and foreign borrowing leads to  flight of capital, devaluation,  inflation and ultimately external  interference in domestic affairs.  It is too bad the politicians  csn't do their job and stop worrying about the next election. Coast News, September 14,1987  Editor:  I find it most inappropriate  that Janine Kokelj, president of  the local branch of the Save the  Children Fund, should use her  appeal letter for this cause to  make sly digs about people who  are concerned ('complain')  about problems here in Canada.  The message is one I've heard  before: Because we live in a free  country that allows dissent we  are supposed to be so grateful  that we decline to voice dissent.  Because hunger, tainted water,  etc. are more of a problem in  Africa than here, we are supposed to be quiet about it when  such things do happen here. Do  I detect a hint of logical fallacy?  Poverty and homelessness exist in Canada. Are we supposed  to ignore these problems until  they are as severe as they are in  Third World nations? Those of  us who 'complain' do so  because, in a democracy, it is a  responsibility, not a privilege, to  speak out against injustice.  In the US poverty and  homelessness are epidemic, as  money is poured into their  government's war machine.  Here, our government schemes  such as Bill 19, which threaten  the working person's ability to  earn a living wage, and the proposed Free Trade agreement  -with the US agressively demanding that we lower our standards to theirs in order to provide a 'level playing field' - are  going to erode Canadian standards of living, and widen the  gap between rich and poor.  Poor   agricultural   practices  here in North America threaten  to turn our farm lands into a  Sahara and threaten us with  future famines. Are we spoiled  whiners if we ask that  something be done about these  things before we too have the  problems that the Third World  has?  While it is true what Ms  Kokelj says about many people  taking for granted the resources  we have here in Canada, those  of us who 'complain' do so  precisely because we do not take  these things for granted, but  realize that they can easily be  squandered or taken from us if  we do not exercise our democratic responsibility to demand  that our leaders be accountable.  Fighting poverty and injustice  in the Third World and fighting  the same things at home are not  mutually exclusive causes.  There are poor in Canada, not  all of whom are unemployed or  on welfare. A single mother, for  example, working at a poorly  paying job cannot afford urban  rent, undersubsidized childcare,  and job-related expenses without cutting corners somewhere.  One of the commonest expenses  the poor cut back on is their  food budget. To comment that  'the only malnutrition in this  country is probably caused by  too much pop and candy' is a  gratuitous insult to those who  are finding it a struggle to feed  themselves and their children  and is certainly a comment unworthy of someone in Ms  Kokelj's position.  Anne Miles  Wilson praised  Editor,  It seems of late the actions of  Gordon Wilson, endihg most  recently with the mess at  Coopers Green, has been the  subject of criticism in the local  media and amongst the  residents.  I first of all would like to say  I supported Gordon Wilson in  the last provincial election.  Unless something drastic happens I will always, support a person willing to take a thoughtful  stand on sensitive issues. I also  support Mr. Wilson as Area 'A'  Director on the Regional Board.  While I do not agree with  those whose mission in life  seems to be the Regional  Board's destruction, I would  find it a frightening place if he  were not there speaking up.  Considering the number of  meetings attended, decisions  made, discussions and opinions  expressed, it would be amazing  if he didn't put a size 14 shoe in  his mouth occasionally and  chew on it for a while.  Mr. Wilson does two things  politicians and elected officials  in this Province seem incapable  of doing. He can think, and  more importantly, he can think  for himself.  But let's step back for a mo  ment and reflect on Gordon  Wilson in a wider context.  Besides being a family man, he  has a full-time job as a professor at Capilano College in  North Vancouver. On top of  that he is the Liberal candidate  for Coast Chilcotin, an extremely diverse geographic area,  and not just a candidate for two  weeks before the election.  He is now also running for  the Provincial Liberal leadership. ;.Thinking about all this  leads me to the conclusion that  overall he does an excellent  'part time' job as a Regional  Board member.  Maybe Mr. Wilson shouldn't  make comment on Area *B',  then again, someone should be  looking out for our interest lest  we sit back and enjoy the summer. Other more silent and less  thoughtful members of the  Board may well be better off  staying at home and watching  the garden grow.

Coast News, September 14,1987  Small Business Centre  by Joel Johnstone  His cell is well-lit. The'tidy  desk and shelves give the impression this is the day off of a  man used to having other people lay their cards on the table.  He, on the other hand, even  dressed casually, carries an air  of shrewd ability, confident in  his expertise. The lines creasing  his brow are made of hard  thought, weathered by experience, and when he gives his  attention it is complete, even as  he gazes out the window to the  subject at hand.  "Last November," he says,  "I got a phone call from the  Regional District Board's  Economic Development Commission (EDC) asking if I would  do a feasibility and implementation study here on the Sunshine  Coast. So I went around to  small business centres around  the province, wrote the feasibility study, and I recommended  there should be a small business  development centre on the Sunshine Coast.  "I presented my report in  early February and I understand  the EDC decided to go ahead  and voted some money for it."  Now, Bob Mason is the Small  Business Centre. He is the only  full time employee working to  make the project a success by  helping others to become successful.  The centre was created, EDC  Director Maurice Egan says,  "Because people interested in  starting a business need a lot of  help. Small business people like  many other people in our society are reluctant to go to someone else for help. Yet those  who do benefit from it greatly.  "As much as possible we  want to help people to avoid  spending a lot of money starting  a business where there is no support for it. You can't have a  laundry shop where others are  already struggling to survive.  We want to get people started  on the right foot and determine  if it is viable."  Egan says, "It is not unique  to this area for small business to  fail for a variety of reasons."  The Small Business Centre,  Bob Mason wants small businesses to succeed.   ���Joel Johnstone photo  capilano  cxalege  COLLEGE  MALL  DISPLAY  Watch for the Capilano College Mall  Display on Saturday, September 19,  1987.

"We're very proud of it. It's  something that's started very  slow because you have to gain  the trust and confidentiality of  people. Bob Mason is very  capable and qualified.  Mason is a professional  engineer who, after completing  over 10 years in industry 'at a  rather senior level', was vice-  president of a major Canadian  chemical company.  "I struck out on my own for  about four years. During that  time, when there wasn't much  in the way of capital expansion,  I went into education. I joined  the British Columbia Institute  of Technology (BCIT) where  for a number of years I headed  up the chemical sciences area  and then became dean of the  engineering division."  He found the experience  helpful when he was loaned by  BCIT to a Canadian development agency involved in education in Zambia, Africa.  "I went back to Africa a couple of times...to Nigeria. I went  there to source the background  of students studying in Canada.  To discover their needs. Then I  went to Kenya with four other  Canadians and toured 16 of  their Harembe Colleges, meaning self-help colleges, and out of  that came an aid program to  Kenya and those particular colleges.  "At the end of that tour I  ended up in Ottawa on loan to a  Federal Ministry Task Force  aimed specifically at initial  development, where I stayed for  two years. And from there I  consulted some and worked  with the Federal Business  Development Corporation programs as a counsellor assisting  small business with development.  "So what I'm doing here is  similar to what I was doing  before. It's carried on."  Mason would really like to  see this project work and so far  it has.  "Setting ��� up a small  business," he says, "is an initiative for a lot of young people  compared to the traditional  employment available... to set  up their own small business and  establish their own business.  "No one has started a  business yet through the Small  Business Centre, yet there are  one or two out there pulling  together good business plans. I  know of one who could successfully open a business but  there's a few months yet there  because the time is not right for  it yet."  He probably wouldn't agree  his office is a cell, but Mason is  actually one of many cells making up the framework of  Capilano College, where his office is located. It is a public service nucleus for the community  surrounding it.  Capilano College is one of  the co-sponsors of the Sunshine  Coast Small Business Centre,  along with the EDC, and,  Mason says the college staff  "has been tremendous. They  have gone out of their way to  try to make this a success."  Their help in secretarial,  phone, and mail services allows  Mason to deal with the real purpose of the Centre, which he  says is to assist, to offer advice,  to counsel existing small  businesses when they recognize  they have a problem and to aid  entreprenuers 'in jumping  through all the hoops they have  to' in order to get their business  underway.  The Sunshine Coast Small  Business Centre is open between  12:30 and 4:30 pm, two afternoons a week.  The program, Egan says, will  be reviewed at the beginning of  the new year. "It depends on  how the EDC feels about the  continuing success. of such a  centre and if there is a need for  it.  "If it works it'll be a good  thing."  i��i  OB  TO/^OtH UPDJO^  Sept. 11  6 mo.  1yr.  2yr.  3 yr.  4yr.  5yr.  1st  10.25  10.50  11.00  11.25  11.50  11.75  2nd  11.00  11.50  12.00  13.00  V.R.M.  10.00  Professional Real Estate Service  Stan and Diane Anderson  (Off.) 885-3211 (Res.) 885-2385 Vancouver Toll Free: 684-8016  Anderson Realty Ltd., Sechelt  Pender Harbour & District  Health Centre Society  ANNUAL CENERAL  MEETING  Sunday, October 4, 2 pm  in the Pender Harbour &  District Health Centre  FALL  Exercise Wear  rom CHICO'S  SPECIAL: CanCan Exercise Tights  s4oo  rHlPfY-q Casual  LillLU iJ Wear  v.

The foundation will annually  award monetary prizes and certificates for excellence in acting,  directing and/or playwriting.  Recipients will be chosen from  working professionals by experts from recognized theatres  and/or institutions in Alberta  and British Columbia.  Mr. Risk was founder and  chief director of The Everyman  Theatre, which toured plays  throughout Alberta and British  Columbia during the late forties  and the fifties. At this time,  there were no professional  theatres in these areas.  The Everyman Company  consisted of young people with  whom Mr. Risk had worked at  the Banff School of Fine Arts,  University of British Columbia  and the University of Alberta.  During his long theatre career  he also headed the Drama Sections of U.B.C. and Alberta's  University Extension Departments.

And not  enough people are showing up.  Maureen Corbin, secretary  for the Sunshine Coast Employment Development Society, says  the newest project for siliculture  is suffering from a lack of enthusiasm from applicants. The  need more people to apply for  the 11 positions available or  they won't have a selection to  choose from.  The program pays people  $270 a week to train in basic  forestry, and orientation.  Courses include survival first  aid, fire suppression, slash burning, hand and power tool  operation, brushing and  weeding, juvenile spacing, herbicide application and tree planting.  It is aimed at providing work  for those on social assistance  and long-term unemployed but  anyone interested can apply.  The Work is carried out on  crown land in and around the  Sechelt Provincial Forest  District and applications are  taken at the Canada Manpower  office on Cowrie Street in  Sechelt.  Coast News, September 14,1987  A momentous meeting  : by Jeanie Parker, 885-2163  This Wednesday's meeting of  the Roberts Creek Community  Association should not be missed. There are several hot topics  to be discussed and you should  be there to judge for yourself  the merits of the situation.  Regional Director Brett  McGillivray will be on hand to  explain the work on the ball-  fields at Cliff Gilker Park, the  golf club's proposal fdr expansion, and other items pertaining  to the interests of Roberts  Creekers.  And up for a vote by those  who have been members of the  Community Association for at  least one full year is the question  of whether to sell a piece of the  land behind the post office. The  Association owns the park and  down the hill there and  neighbouring property owner  Philip Locke would like to acquire the flatland below to add  to his own lot.  The Association's Executive  is reluctant to sell the land  because it might prove valuable  to the community at some time  in the future. It used to be a  playground   and   might   serve  some similiar use.  A land swap is one possibility  if Mr. Lock could manage to  acquire some other land that  would be useful to the community. But there must be a  vote and by a sizable majority  of the membership.  So all members eligible to  vote are urged to attend  Wednesday, September 16 at 8  pm at the Community Hall.  And those who haven't done so  are urged to join the Community Association: you never know  when you might want to register  your opinion.

They  were married Septenfber' 26,  1927 in Vancouver, a year after  they had met at a logging camp  on Theodosia Arm, north of  Lund, where Ray worked and  where Ruby had come to visit  her sister.  "I remember on our wedding  day," said Ray, "the minister  said he would have to hurry the  ceremony along because he had  a funeral to do the same afternoon."  "Our children started their  schooling in logging camps up  and down the Coast," said  Ruby, "with me as their teacher  supervising their correspondence courses. I did my  baking and laundry on the  weekends."  In 1936 the family came to  Wilson Creek to live. "A work  bee put our house up on a Sun  day and we moved in the next  day in the evening."  In 1953 Ray started a garbage  collection business in the Gibsons district and then in 1955 he  and Ruby began the first daily  mail delivery in the district.  "Thirty-two point eight miles  it was," said Ray, "and we did  this route for five years and two  months."  "Around Christmas we  delivered parcels on Sundays on  our own time," added Ruby,  "just to get them out of our  way. Everyone ordered so much  by mail then."  Following Ray's employment  at Hillside Sand and Gravel until it closed in 1965, the couple  moved to the West Kootenays  where Ray worked as a steam  engineer on the Duncan and Arrow (Keenleyside) dams.  When he retired, Ray built a  house in Edgewood on Arrow  Lake where they lived from  1970 to 1980. Ray and Ruby  now live in Castlegar.  The Rhodes had six children,  three of whom live in the Gibsons area. They are sons Edwin  and Terry and daughter Beryl  Williams.  "We have 17 grandchildren  and nine great-grandchildren,"  said Ray and Ruby.  The Rhodes came to Gibsons  last week to visit, and on Sunday, September 6, they were  honoured guests at a gathering  of family and friends in the  Kinsmen Hall in Gibsons.  ��  VALUES  M  "t&tt      WOOD      'furnaces  The "Extras"  are Standard.

To  my way of thinking there is  nothing wrong with utilizing a  natural resource, providing the  environment does not suffer,  and in the case of strip mining  or gravel operations, it certainly  should be stipulated by govern-  mentthat the desecrated area be  returned to its natural state or as  close to it as possible.  My line of thought and, of  course, the line of thought of  each property owner between  the Wakefield Inn and Davis  Bay, should be to not only protest verbally about the proposed  outlet for gravel in Trail Bay,  but to get your pen and paper  out and write today to:  Mr. Jack Hall, Regional Director, Lands and Housing, Lower  Mainland Regional Operation,  210-4240 Manor Street, Burnaby, B.C. Y5G 1B2  As the natural beauty of the  Porpoise Bay waterfront is  already burdened with industrial outlets of many kinds,  :and certainly if gravel must  come out of the Selma Park and  Sechelt area, it should be  definitely stipulated by our  government that it be moved  through that area. To anticipate  a monstrous dock in Trail Bay  extending out hundreds of meters, and gravel being loaded  and transported at all hours of  the night and day, is nothing  short of a nightmare for the entire Sechelt area. To anticipate  tugs docking barges at all and  any hour of night or day with  resultant sewage from these  vessels, and oil pollution that invariably must result from the  necessary lubrication that will  try to silence the monster, one  can see that beaches in the Davis  Marsden  gavelled  by Ken Collins  Director Jack Marsden was  ruled out of order at last week's  Sunshine Coast Regional  District meeting when he attempted to express his concern  about the advisability of funding further foreshore studies of  Sechelt Inlet.  Marsden had risen to make  his motion but it was apparent  from the snickering that came  from his fellow directors that  they did not share his concern.  "I remember a time," said  Marsden, "when another man  with a little moustache waved a  piece of paper in the air with  promises of peace and we ended  up in a long war."  Marsden's reference was apparently to Director Wilson  who had waved the brochure  published by the Provincial  Government on fish farming  opportunities. Previous to the  arrival of the brochure Wilson  had been a staunch defender of  the study which produced it.  "Half of the members of the  Foreshore Task Force are civil  servants," said Marsden, "and  they cannot speak their own  minds."  At this point Chairman  Gurney gavelled Marsden down  and with a smile suggested that  he put his motion into writing.  Director Marsden sat down.

APPOINTMENTS 885-2818  Cowrie & Inlet, Sechelt  Bay/Sechelt area will no longer  present a respectable magnet to  draw tourists to enjoy our  shores.  Stan Dixon has a letter in the  Press of Tuesday, September 8  headed "A Prayer for  Success", setting out the proposed goals and attainments of  his people. He starts out by saying. "There are many people in  this country carefully watching  us, the Sechelt Indian Band, to  take notice of our progress to  local autonomy", and he is certainly more than right. Let's  have some responsible thinking  on this matter, and if gravel  must move, let it move through  Porpoise Bay.  Our seniors, as one of the  largest associations in the area,  should lead the field by sending  their views to the above given  address.  EXECUTIVE MEETING  A special executive meeting  was held in our hall on September 8 to clarify for our  members the finer points of our  special meeting scheduled for  September 17.  1. There, will be NO MEMBERSHIPS AVAILABLE at the  door on September 17. You  must join prior to the meeting  to be eligible to vote. Phone  Kay MacKenzie at 885-3184 for  membership.  2. Have your 1987 Blue Membership Card ready when entering please.  3. The regular general meeting  will not follow the extraordinary meeting.  4. The vote will require a two-  thirds majority of those paid-up  members present, for or  against, to pass.  5. Should the two-thirds majority not be attained by either,  then the vote is 'dead' and we  revert back to our original situation whereby we carry on with  our planning on the Trail  Avenue property. There will be  no further controversy and the  matter will be permanently closed.  6. Of prime importance to all  members of our branch is the  maintenance of our individual  identify.

Butcher spoke glowingly of  the advantages to the students  in being able to attend the conference. "This is an international conference with delegates  from across North America, "he  said. There will be many important speakers, including the  Premier of Saskatchewan.  Butcher went on to say that  there would be no cost to the  Board, as students would be  met in Edmonton and driven to  Lloydminster and billeted by  people of the town. The only  cost to the students, airfare  from Vancouver to Edmonton,  is being met by the Student  Council.

Egmont News  Climbing Red Top  by Shirley Hall, 883-1154  It would be impossible to live  in the Egmont area for long  without becoming aware of Red  Top, a distinctive mountain  above the logging roads on the  east side of Jervis Inlet. It's  peak has for many years been a  goal for climbers and there are  historians who suggest that the--  mountain may have had special  significance for the Indians in  the area.  Last week six local climbers  set out for a hike to the top.  They followed the logging roads  to the start of the alpine  meadows, where two of them  decided to stop and camp. The  others proceeded on up. They  were Ron Fearn and his son  Michael, Greg Howitt and John  Seabrook.  The climbers, with the exception of Michael, had been up  Red Top before, but this time,  because some of the logging  roads were washed out, they got  on the wrong side of the valley,  on the right side of the face  rather than the left. They realiz-  . ed their error but continued up,  following ridges in the alpine  valley and hoping to eventually  find their way across. This they  did, but after seven or eight  hours hard climbing, instead of  the usual three or four. They  kept finding themselves on  ridges that petered out to a narrow ledge with a five hundred  foot drop below.  The top was truly incredible,  with a long, long view of mountains and sea, the Olympics, the  Fraser Valley, Powell River,  and way up Jervis Inlet. There  were lots of signs of cougar and  they saw bears and deer. There  were also bugs, mainly mosquitoes, but they left with the  sun, and when the moon came  out it was wonderful. There  were few alpine flowers but  many small, wild blueberries.  There is also a cairn at the  top, made of rocks heaped by  climbers over the years. Inside it  you can find half a bottle of Tequila, left by Greg. A good  make, I'm told.

First prize went to Carl  Nordli with his sunflower  measuring 17 and a half inches  across the head; second Ivan  Nordli, 17 inches; third was the  MacKenzie children, 16 inches;  and fourth Dana Miller, 14 inches. A special prize went to  Brittany Sluis for the prettiest.  Runners up were Shauneen  Crosby, Chris Honn, Amber  Jalkern, Meianie Sluis, Vickie  Bayes, Crystal Jackson, Jane  Jamacke, and Tracy Hunter.  Chamberlain Gardens, Green  Scene and Quality Farms  donated the prizes and a framed  picture of a sunflower was also  presented to the winner by Miss  Audrey Martin who donated it.  Ice cream was donated by Truffles.   Thank   you   participants  and donors, a very good effort.  September is the first month  of Autumn - and Jack Frost.  With August's lassitude gone,  and a tang of cooler weather in  the air, there's no time better  than now to recall and reflect  our planning and planting and  work in the garden of this year.  No matter how well we have  done, errors must be rectified.  Continue saving seeds from  cherished annuals and perennials, dry well and store in glass  or metal containers, carefully  labelled.  Geraniums will root from  cuttings very easily, making  plants ideal for winterizing in  greenhouse or on window sill.  Cut long non-flowering shoots  from base of plant, remove all  but top leaves and cut off the  top two inches. Remove the  small stipules at the leaf joints  from the tip and the stem. Sink  the two inch tip into sandy compost to just below the leaf joint.  Gramma's parking still an issue  by Ken Collins  Gibsons Planning Committee  has recounted the parking  spaces at Gramma's Pub one  more time and has concluded  that it is now short four parking  spaces. Consequently the town  has tabled the application for a  building permit to construct an  addition to the premises until  Gramma's can either come up  with appropriate parking within  1000 meters of the building or  pays a sum of money into the  town parking fund.  The fact that the Federal  Government, which claims  sovereignty in Canada, has  given Gramma's permission to  utilize crown land beside the  pub is irrelevant to all but  Alderman Dixon. Chris Danroth, owner of Gramma's, has  produced for Gibsons Council a.  letter from Transport Canada  dated July 6, 1979.

But  when it was  all com-  .   pleted, there was room to park  four cars as well as provide ample access to the premises. The  town says these spaces are on  the street and do not count even  though they are on crown land.  In   an    earlier   interview  Danroth stated he had done exactly what the town wanted in  respect to requirements for the  proposed addition and that it  was its height that was objected  to and that parking was merely  an excuse to attempt to stop  him. "I first wanted to build it  on the water side where no one  would even see it," he said,  "but they said it would be over  the height bylaw so I designed it  on the street side so it would  comply."  Danroth is presently in  Europe and unavailable to comment on the town's latest decision.  Conference  Continued from page 1  also mentioned in his speech.  "After we got down to talk,"  he said, "We agreed that both  industries can survive." But he  couldn't   have   talked   to  the  Alaska   Trollers   Association.  According to Don Rugg, Director of Marketing for the B.C.  Ministry   of   Agriculture   and  Fisheries,  the Alaska Trollers  have launched a $750,000 US  campaign against farm salmon.  They look the same but don't  taste the same' is what they say.  "The   quality   of   a   tame  salmon starts with the type of  feed that is given the animal,"  said Rugg, "The quality of wild  salmon starts with  when the  animal is landed.  "But what is a new improved  salmon?" asked Rugg rhetorically, "We do need to have a set  of recognized standards."  And he also let local consumers know what they were in  for. "If the salmon industry is  going to have the longevity we  expect it to, we will have to sell  the best and keep the rest," he  concluded.  And how do we ensure the  best? F.S. Millerd, President of  Great Northern Packing Ltd.  said he used to call farm fish  'whimpy' fish. "The fish is very  soft   because   it   hasn't   been  swimming   around   dodging  predators. Instead," he said, "it  as been lally-gagging around in  the net pens getting fed and  pampered." Because of this, he  pointed out, it is better to ship  live to the processors and let  them   be   slaughtered   gently.  Millard  stated  the  procedure  necessary is to remove the oxygenated water and put in CQ2  water, then the gills are cut and  the fish bleed 45  minutes in  fresh water. Then they are kept  in chilled water for one or two  hours.  And so the conference went.  Four intensive days of experts  promoting methods by which  aquaculture can succeed in the  world surrounded by salesmen  with just the thing to do it with.  Already it may have outgrown Sechelt.

Day two of the festival rolls  round before we know it. We  arrive at Greenecourt around  9:30 in time to catch George  Payerle.  George and I, it might be  said, work the same side of the  street,, both literally and in  terms of what we write about.  We have a muzzy nodding acquaintance from such pubs as  the Lamplighter and the Marble  Arch, and know many of the  same people in business. I had a  chance to talk a bit with George  the previous day. His second  novel, The Unknown Soldier, is  coming out in September from  MacMillan. I am anxious to  hear him do Ijis stuff.  George is a biggish bearded  man of 41, who looks as though  he has been around, and has.  He is introduced by retired  English professor, Jan de  Bruyn, who knows him from  UBC days.  George begins by describing  the genesis of The Unknown  Soldier, which took five years to  write and four more to find a  publisher. Sam, the protagonist,  is an embittered World War II  vet of 59. A composite of many  veterans, George has known  and talked with over the years,  in countless Legions and pubs.  Divorced, a heavy drinker, still  haunted by memories of death  and carnage decades before,  Sam is a man approaching a life  crisis.  The main action of the book  takes place in 1978 Vancouver  and England. Sam, who lives in  Victoria, has come to the  mainland to seek out his  estranged son and his ex-wife.  Trouble dogs his tracks from  the very beginning. On the ferry  ride across, he has an alterca-  The doomed oleric  by Montague Royal  Laws are as fallible as the  men who make them. Miscarriages of justice still occur and  probably always will. But compared to the way things were a  cpuple of hundred years back,  \?e live in a judicial paradise. In  htis absorbing book The  Macaroni Parson (Hutchinson),  author Gerald Howson makes  this fact abundantly clear.  > The subject of Howson's  study, the Rev.William Dodd,  was a somewhat vain but essentially harmless man who became  inadvertently caught in the toils  (?f the unbelievably punitive  legal system as it existed then.  The so-called 'Bloody Code'  was in full force. There were  over 300 capital offenses on the  books and the most trivial of  misdemeanours were punishable by public hanging. Even  children were frequently executed for petty theft.  William Dodd was born in  1729 in Lincolnshire,on the  edge of the Fens, the oldest son  of the Vicar of Bourne. His  father instilled a love of  literature in him at an early age  and he aspired to become a  Writer. With this career in mind,  Dodd, a good student, attended  Cambridge   University   on   a  working scholarship and  published a slim book of verse.  Once his degree was secured, he  moved to London to become an  author.  For several years Dodd scratched out a meagre living as a  hack writer on Grub Street.  Then he met and fell in love  with a girl of 16 named Mary  Perkins. They decided to get  married. This necessitated a  much steadier source of income  than Dodd's writing was bringing in. The answer was simple  enough. Using his father's connections with the Church, Dodd  became ordained as a  clergyman.  Dodd's assumption of the  Cloth did little to temper his  secular interests and a fondness  for extravagant living. Both he  and his wife enjoyed dancing,  good food and drink and fine  clothing. Dodd's dandified  manner of dressing soon earned  him the nickname of the  'Macaroni Parson' (Macaroni  was a cant term for fop).  Despite his flamboyant  tendencies, Dodd became one  of the most popular and successful preachers of his day.  Royalty often attended his sermons. Dodd continued to write  and publish his plays and  poems. He also dabbled in  social   activism   and   founded  Dodd  knew  several charities. Soon,  was a celebrity who  everyone worth knowing.  Please turn to page 13  tion with a young biker, swings  on him and hits a steward by  mistake. Both he and the biker  end up in jail.  In another graphic scene,  Sam has an unpleasant confrontation with an aging shrewish  woman at the Sylvia Hotel. He  has vague plans of picking her  up but they end in an ugly  slanging match. The woman exits in tears and Sam is ejected  for causing a disturbance.  Eventually, Sam ties up with  his son and, together with the  son's fiancee, they go to a Davie  Street jazz club. The girl is  perceptive, seems to understand  Sam and tries to end.the rift between father and son. But  nothing is finally resolved.  George's writing is powerful,  often beautiful and unremittingly honest. It is also very  frank. The often salty language  does not sit well with two ladies  in front of us. They discreetly  take their leave about halfway  through the performance. The  rest of the audience is not so  squeamish and rewards George  with a vigorous ovation.  I want to talk further with  George about his book. After  the reading, he, local film-  developer, Paul Murphy and  myself, repair to Gilligan's Pub.  (Yvonne is not with us, having  taken George and Norma Ryga  to visit retired teacher, Cloe  Day, who knew him years ago,  as a boy in Alberta.)  At the bar, George shows us  a chapter that he refrained from  reading because of the extreme  violence. It is a flashback to  World War II and one of the  most chilling pieces of combat  description I have ever read.  George described the difficulty  he had finding a publisher for  The Unknown Soldier. The  book bounced off nine houses  before MacMillan finally decided to take a flyer on it. The  novel is sure to jolt the literary  market when it hits the stores in  September. 6  John Burnside joins the table.

It was called At  This Moment, a classic soul  ballad that punched all the right  funky buttons. It was a frankly  sentimental tribute to a lost love  that harked back to the Sixties  and earlier, a timeless tune that  eschewed synthesizers and the  sort of shallow plasticity that  characterizes too much contemporary music. At This Moment  was like a flower in the desert of  yuppie pap - an authentic lament - a real song.  Billy Vera, the singer/composer of At This Moment, had  been waiting in the wings of  popular music for a long time.  Forty-two years old, he cut his  first record in 1961 when he was  17. He was a blue-eyed soul  singer in the mold of the  Righteous Brothers, determined  to sing black music in the way it  was intended to be sung.  Vera (whose real name is  William McCbrd), enjoyed a bit  of minor fame in the Sixties. He  signed a contract with Atlantic  Records in 1968 and had some  minor hits. Then as Vera puts it,  "The era of wimp songwriter/  singers came upon us and there  was no place for me in the  business."  Vera literally disappeared into limbo during the Seventies.  He spent much of the decade in  a state of depression, profoundly discouraged and unable to  write. In 1979, Vera left his  hometown of New York and  moved to Los Angeles. He  plunged back into music and  put together a powerhouse band  called the Beaters. It was a  classic R & B aggregation with  three saxophones and a trumpet  in addition to keyboards,  guitars, fender bass and drums.  They began gigging around the  Los Angeles clubs and soon  became one of the hottest  groups in the area. Billy and the  Beaters performed both original  tunes and raunchy soul standards, with a touch of country  and western for variety. The  combination of hot music and  Vera's impassioned vocals,  made the group a host of fans,  including such luminaries as  Bruce Willis, Angie Dickinson,  Rickie Lee Jones, Jackson  Browne and veteran jazz singer,  Kay Starr.  In 1981, Vera and his band  signed with an obscure Tokyo  label called Alfa and recorded  two albums. But success still  eluded him. The albums went  nowhere and the company  subsequently went bankrupt.  In 1985, Michael Weithorn,  producer/writer for NBC's  Family Ties, was searching for  an original romantic ballad to  use in the show. He heard Vera  singing At This Moment in a  local club and was blown away.  The song was used in three  separate episodes of the show  and rocketed Billy and the  Beaters into the limelight at last.  The long years of obscurity  were over.  Rhino Records, a small Los  Angeles based label,  released  Doomed cleric  Continued from page 12  But the Macaroni Person's  freewheeling lifestyle began to  push him ever deeper into debt.  Eventually he was driven to  forgery and unfortunately was  caught red-handed. Although  Dodd made immediate restitution of the money, he was  charged with the crime anyhow,  i Forgery of course, along with  just about everything else, carried the death penalty.  Dodd .and his wife were taken  into custody and one of the  greatest travesties of justice in  British legal history got underway. Public opinion was almost  totally on the bewildered parson's side. Such eminent men of  letters as Samuel Johnson worked tirelessly to have the charges  quashed. Endless petitions for  mercy were signed and submitted. The general outcry was unprecedented.  Workshops  Two workshops are offered  free of charge both to students  and the general public at the  Sechelt Campus of Capilano  College starting Tuesday,  September 15.  'Relax Your Way To Better  Health' contains tips on how to  deal with stress. Five sessions  10:30 to 12:30 pm, will be the  best part of your week with easy  to learn relaxation techniques.  These techniques can help to  put you on the road to better  health and greater productivity.  Students are asked to wear comfortable clothes and bring a pad  to lie on.  Time Management' is for  people who always feel they  need an extra day in the week,  or are always rushed or feel they  waste time. This workshop will  analyze your present time use,  familiarize you with organizational techniques, and help  develop strategies for long and  short term time management  goal setting. The workshop runs  for five Tuesdays, 9:00 to 10:00  pm.  The instructor, Bev Hill, has  presented many other workshops in these and other topics  as part of the offerings of the  Achievement Resource Centre  at the Sechelt Campus of  Capilano College.  If you wish to take one or  both of these workshops, please  register at 885-9310 between  12:30 and 7:00 pm at the  Capilano College Sechelt Campus.  But the Chief Justice, Lord  Mansfield, was a grim implacable man, totally opposed  to reform of any sort on the  grounds that 'it might weaken  the state'. In the end, all the efforts to save Reverend Dobbs  proved in vain. On June 27,  1777, the resigned parson was  taken to Tyburn Hill and hanged on the public gallows. It is  said he died with quiet bravery;  He was 49 years old.  Oddly enough, William  Dodd, the Macaroni Parson,  did not die in vain. His cruel  fate stirred up a storm of controversy that never subsided. It  led eventually to the repeal of  the 'Bloody Code' for all but  the most serious offenses, and  triggered a process of legal  review and reform that con-  ' tinues to this day.  the best of the old Alfa material  as a new album called Billy Vera  and the Beaters/By Request. It  shot to the top of the national  charts and remained there for  many weeks. I bought the  album and was delighted to find  that it doesn't have a bad track  on it. Like millions of other  people, I became a rabid fan.  Naturally, when Billy and the  Beaters played Vancouver last  Sunday, I was there with bells  on, along with Yvonne and  John and Fran Burnside.  The 86th Street Club on the  old Expo site is an enormous  high-tech cavern of a place with  great air-conditioning and top  notch acoustics. It is already  crowded when Yvonne and I arrive around nine o'clock. The  warm-up band, a pretty good  local group called Detroit, is  hammering out a string of rock  oldies. After a bit of searching,  we luck on a table with a good  frontal view of the stage. John  and Fran show up shortly after.  Detroit finishes its set and the  band exits to good applause. A  veritable army of roadies hits  the stage and spends the better  part, of an hour, moving equipment and checking the mikes  and amps. Finally, the lights  dim. When they go up again,  Billy and the Beaters are firmly  ensconced in their places and set  to wail.  The best way to describe Billy  Vera is nondescript. A slight,  balding, pleasant-faced guy in a  double-breasted suit, he looks  almost out of place among his  long-haired, much-younger  sidemen, as though he has  somehow wandered out onto  the wrong stage. Then the band  blasts into a roaring up-tempo  blues; Billy Vera, guitar slung  across his chest, steps up to the  mike and starts to belt out the  lowdown lyrics and you forget  all about his slightly-square appearance. This guy knows his  business backwards. He's in  total command. The club rocks  alive with drivine sound.  Billy Vera has a remarkably  good voice (a legacy from his  'SL GIBSONS LEGION  Branch *109  Sept. 18th &19th  - Members & Guests Welcome  GENERAL MEETING Sept. isth, 8 P  #^t  West oh Cower Point. Rd. 'til you reaih'the Sea  mother, also a professional  singer) and he uses it like a  weapon. With the Beaters cooking expertly behind him, he  romps through the first  number, obviously enjoying  himself immensely. His enthusiasm is infectious. He has  the crowd in his pocket from the  start.  Vera proceeds to lambaste his  way through a long and high  eclectic set, allowing his crack  musicians plenty of spirited solo  breaks. For saxophone lovers  like Yvonne and myself, it is a  royal treat. The excellent  trumpet player even uses a  mute, evoking the days of swing. It is a welcome change from  wall-to-wall guitars and bogus  glitz.  In addition to his vocal  talents, Billy Vera is an expert  raconteur and he lays down an  amusing patter between  numbers. I am pleased to hear  that he has two more albums  coming out shortly - one of  reissues from the Sixties; the  other, a collection of brand new  tunes on Capitol Records, his  new label.  All too soon, the long exuberant set draws to a close.  Not surprisingly, Vera finishes  up with a fine rendition of his  breakthrough song At This Moment, complete with the spooky  falsetto line at the end. Naturally, the crowd wants more and  Billy and the Beaters return for  the obligatory encore. This time  he introduces his fine backup  group, "The baddest band on  any stand!" Vera closes with his  long soul epic, Here Comes the  Dawn, a truly inspired tear  jerker.  That's it for Billy Vera's first  Vancouver stand. There will undoubtedly be more. We exit the  club in a state of mild euphoria.  We have been thoroughly entertained. Real music lives!  * 0 0 000000 000000 ~ v -���.

Now we  were at their Gibsons restaurant and there it was, steaming  sumptuously before our eyes. It covered over half the plate  and the potato with assorted vegetables were left to find  space where they could. Thanks to an ingenious chef they  all fit in and included lots of butter and sour cream so that  our Texas Special looked as good as it tasted.  "I'll have trouble eating all of this meal," I said feebly  to our friendly waitress.  "Oh, don't worry," she said smiling, "We can wrap up  anything left over and you can have a steak sandwich for  lunch tomorrow." With that comforting answer, I embarked on a delicious fulfilling dinner that was a bargain  to boot. For $10.95 I had chosen a winning meal, or  should I say, a winning two meals.  My companion had ordered barbecue chicken and was  also overwhelmed by the size of the serving.  At Pronto's, one can order any of many choices of pizza, but also, appetizers, soups and salads. The 'small'  Greek salad was my kind of large size of small. It had lots  of tomatoes and sweet onions and was heaped high with  feta cheese. The minestrone soup 'of the day' was served  in a 'home' style size of bowl that made those two items a  lovely meal for 'light' eaters.  No wonder I took up my waitress' suggestion and had  her wrap up the remaining 12 ounce sirloin. After the salad  and soup I could only eat four ounces of the delicious entree. My companion too had a portion of chicken to take  home. What is really wonderful is that I will be able to eat  very well tomorrow too. But then, at Pronto's in the  Cedar's Plaza, all their dinners are tasty generous portions  of special offerings.  Lately Pronto's has been advertising their weekly  specials and now that I know how special the special really  is I will be a willing customer on their doorstep so I can  order their next week's piece de resistance.

Competition should be keen as the  regulars go for gold. Results will  be available for next week's  publication.  On September 8 the old boys  opted for a Blind Partners  round. Winners for the day  were Bart Dillabough and  Dutch Hadden in first place  with Bill Jack and Murrell  Smith in second. George Grant,  Eldy Gandy and Bill Gibbon,  Pete Waycott tied for third.  Dutch Hadden was closest to  the pin.  The mixed twilight this week  was a Two Ball Foursome. Tom  Held and Evelyn Tapio took  top honours.  Club members are reminded  that twilight play will soon end  so those wishing to get in on the  fun should turn out for the last  few matches.  The men's day round on  September 5 was a Two Ball  Best Ball event. Randy Legge  and'Pete Waycott took top  spot. Tied for second were the.  teams of Jim Menzies, Terry  Dougan and Jim Buntain, Al  Wendland.  Ladies' Day on September 10  saw the gals take the challenge  of playing Monkey Foursome  with each foursome playirlg one  ball and each player carrying  only one club. The results were  devastating, however, everyone  had a good time. The team of  Helen Crabb, Shirley Dumma  and Catherine McQuitty were  declared the winners.

Board aids  Driftwood  The School Board has  granted a request by Driftwood  Players to waive the rental fee  of $492.00 incurred for their use  of the Gibsons Elementary  School gym for the Summer  Play Parade.  The popular summer drama  event, which gave the Coast  twenty-three days of live  theatre, realised the healthv sum  of $7052.00, but still wound up  in the red to the tune of  $1221.00.  Trustee Doris Fuller, speaking  in favour of the group, said,  "This Board has gone on record  to encourage drama. We are in  effect extending our educational  facilities to give kids the opportunity to see live theatre."  However, in further discussion on the subject, Trustees  Mewhort, Wilson and Lloyd  argued that Board policy was  being compromised. In the past  other groups had been refused  similar requests, and a situation  was foreseen where any group  which was short of funds could  make a similar request, thus  contradicting Board policy that  school facilities be available for  community use, provided that  no costs be incurred by the  School District. "We must reexamine our policy" stated  Wilson.

They scurried away, able  to run on practically nothing,  but not before the climbers  caught a whiff of them. Ron  says they stank pretty bad, but I  think the fellows were probably  pretty whiffy themselves, after  all that climbing in the heat.  It was a wonderful adventure. They felt good about it  and their achievement. ���  There is just one announcement this week. On Wednesday,  September 16, there will be an  Egmont Reunion Tea and Bake  Sale at the community hall. All  Egmont oldtimers but also people new to the area are invited.  Come out for good food and a  good time.  timistic  that  funding will  be  received.  The program, a mixture of  on the job and classroom training, is designed to equip women  who want to return to the job  market with those skills needed  to search for and gain employment in the small business sector. Topics covered in the  course include confidence  building, goal setting, academic  skills, business skills, an introduction to computers and.  job search techniques.  As a first step in applying for  the program, women are asked  to register for and attend a  workshop on Career Planning,  to be held at the Sechelt Campus on Inlet Avenue, on Thursday, September 24 from 10 to 3  pm.  Eighteen women have already  found this program helped them  to develop a plan to return to  the labour market, and equipped them with skills to find and  gain a job or career. Women  who need a transition period to  help them hone skills and gain  confidence should consider the  Re-Entry Program. If the program is funded once again the  students will be eligible to be  paid a training allowance  through CEIC while they complete the program.  Register for the Career Planning Workshop, or get more information on the Women's Job  Re-Entry Program by calling  Capilano College between 12:30  and 7:00 pm at 885-9310.  before you eaBB your roaB  ALLIED  The Careful Movers  If you are buying or selling your home and moving either locally or long  distance, call your local Allied Member first before you contact your real  estate agent to inquire about qualifying to receive CASHBACK.

The Executrix  Cathorine Laing  Box 764,  Gibsons, B.C. VON 1V0     #37  The voyage from St. Vaast la  Hougue to Le Havre took us  along the beaches of Normandy. The chart evokes ghosts of  the invasion. There are 120  marked wrecks, two of them  buoyed as hazards.  It was foggy as we travelled  eastward, cutting across the  huge Baie de la Seine, a distance  of some 50 miles. We did not  properly compensate for the  current and we were lost  somewhere in the fog. About  noon a headland showed up,  the fog thinning under the hot  sun. Nearby were spaced pylons  indicating a harbour. A fierce  current pushed us toward them  and Mouli had trouble maintaining position even under full  power. It was plain we were  miles beyond Le Havre and outside a restricted harbour.  We entered anyway and  awaited the slack, then headed  back along the coast toward Le  Havre. We felt exhausted from  the suspense, lack of sleep, and  long hours of watching. There  was much boating activity. A  young couple aboard a becalmed day sailer hailed us and indicated they wished a tow. We  took their line and continued  on.  The harbour of Le Havre  came into view and the French  couple cast off. Bill pumped the  bilges and noticed oil on the  water. He looked at the oil  level; it looked empty. He put in  more oil. The motor coughed  and stopped in a cloud of  smoke. Now a myriad of craft  milled around us at the harbour  entrance. We hurriedly dropped  anchor.  Then began a bad time. A  day later we realized that there  had been unnecessary panic.  Were we too old and lacking in  physical and mental stamina?  I frantically called for help  and a yacht towed us in. Next  day the mechanic we called,  who spoke a little English, said  the motor stopped because of  too much oil. A little investigation at anchor and we could  have motored in. Bill silently  cleaned up the mess. He was  discouraged but determined.  My sister Margaret and her  husband Lefty were joining us  in a couple of days. Meanwhile,  we explored Le Havre. One of  France's most important ports,  the city suffered terrible damage  in World War II. Three quarters  of the city was levelled and most  of the historic buildings  destroyed.  Because of this damage, it  lacks the charm of some of  Europe's old cities. But near the  harbour there are two interesting structures. There is a  cathedral with a high tower,  eight or 10 stories high, and  apertures with stained glass in  geometric designs. A huge slab  of marble forms the pulpit. The  unusual architecture is startling.  The other structure is a huge  war memorial on which are inscribed the names of hundreds  and hundreds of civilians who.;;.  lost   their   lives  in   the   war;'-j  civilians killed in the bombing,  shot as resistance fighters, or .'  victims of forced-labour camps.  All through France we were to  see these memorials to French   .  civilians.  Mayor not amused  by Ken Collins  Gibsons Mayor Diane Strom  has stated severe displeasure  with the recent retroactive pay  and promotion given Irene  Lugsden by the Regional Board.  "We are paying for a promotion that will benefit this individual off the coast," she said  last week to the rest of council  at their Wednesday planning  meeting, "I feel this is mismanagement."  "What was the reason," asked Alderman Dixon.  "I think Jim (Gurney) saw it  was recognition of a job well  done and it was kind of a going  away present," said Alderman  Norm Peterson, Gibsons representative on the Regional  Board.  "It's a very expensive going  away present," concluded  Mayor Strom.

We are pleased to advise that  the results achieved came up  fully to our best expectations  with a paid delegate attendance  of 385 people from as far away  as Germany, Sweden, Finland,  Norway, Britain, the USA,  Chile and Thailand.  Trade exhibitors occupying  over 80 stalls plus additional  with tables wherever they could  be fitted in, came from just  about every field with an involvement in aquaculture with a  large proportion being Canadian companies particularly  from B.C.  Papers presented were of a  very high standard covering a  range of important topics of importance to local salmon and  shellfish farming with additional attention being paid to  abalone farming in California  and eel farming in Sweden.  The Sunshine Coast Aquaculture Association would like  to thank all participants and in  particular those volunteers and  directors who gave so unstin-  tingly of their time together with  Dora Glover our secretary/  manager and her office staff.  Mention should also be made  of the catering department at  the Bella Beach Motel for an exceptional banquet on Tuesday  evening along with such local  businesses as South Coast Ford  who provided a courtesy  limousine service, which added  a touch of class.  All, whether named or un  named, did a superb job without which the project could not  have succeeded.  Next year will see the conference moving to Vancouver as  part of the far larger Aquaculture International '88 event  to be held at the World Trade  Centre facilities adjoining the  Pan Pacific Hotel.  All being well the Sunshine  Coast Aquaculture Association  expects to host the fifth Sunshine Coast Conference here in  Sechelt in 1989.  Syd Heal  OLLOY  B.Sc. Hon. R.M.P.  is pleased to announce  the opening of  MASSAGE THERAPY  CLINIC  #7 Seaview Place, Hwy 101, Gibsons  886-3120  Rowdies bane of hospitality industry  Editor:  After reading the letter from  the Ritz Motel and speaking to  the manager personally, I feel  that I too, should voice my opinion and express my concerns  on the subject.  This" is our first 'summer  season' here in Gibsons, and I  am appalled at the behaviour of  some guests (most of whom  were in the under 25 years of  age bracket). One of our encounters was with some of the  sports participants involved in  the first big baseball tourney,  and others here for family  celebrations of some sort or  another.  Striving to make guests' stays  as pleasant as possible is not going to happen when there are  'rowdies' in the place. I define  'rowdies' as those who, as a  result of over-indulgence pro-  Ethical investments  Editor:  On Tuesday, September 22,  from 7 to 10 pm at Chatelech  Secondary School, a representative of the Canadian Network  for Ethical Investments (CNEI)  will present a seminar about  'Building Community, Ecology  and the New Economics.'  Larry Trunkey is a former investment counsellor who now  works with CNEI. His presentation will be of interest to many  Canadians who are concerned  about the growth of their investment portfolios, but vjfho are  also worried about investing in  companies that support apartheid, manufacture arms or promote the use of nuclear power.  Trunkey will describe how investors can create a powerful  tool for social change when they  make investment decisions based on criteria that acknowledge  community needs and resources, that recognize corporate practices, and that  satisfy personal financial goals.  If you are interested in the  social implications of financial  planning, pre-register for this  seminar at Continuing Education by phoning 886-8841  (883-area residents can call  885-7871, local 27, before 4  pm). There is a $5.00 fee for this  session, please pre-pay before  September 17.  Thank you very much for  your continued support in making your readers aware of special interest events sponsored by  School District 46's Continuing  Education Department.  Ricki Moss, Coordinator  Realtors chicled  Editor:  I read on the inside front  page of the Sunshine Coast  Realtor, "The Realtor Members  of The Sunshine Coast Estate  Association recognize that the  housing needs of seniors and  retired persons are not being addressed". Then they have the  audacity to start prices suggested, single family home  $60-70 thousand dollars;  townhouse $50-60 thousand;  self owned apartment $60-70  thousand. What are the realtors  trying to do on the sunshine  coast, price fix, beginning at  $50,000?  If they are so concerned  about the seniors housing problem, perhaps they should be  addressing the fact that those  seniors who have a problem  with housing, are not in an income bracket to afford $60,000  plus apartments or $50,000 plus  townhouses. Lighten up  realtors, the majority of seniors  are not wealthy, or do you only  want the wealthy living on the  coast?  Philip Grafton  Investment advice  Editor  Money talks...so what's your  money saying? Mostly "goodbye" I guess. But if you have,  or might someday have,  something to invest, here's good  news.  iiton  WOOD  FURNACES  - The Furnace  that thinks!

You know, a person can talk,  work and pray for an end to  bad things like pollution and  war, and at the same time his or  her invested buck is churning  out these same evils.  Mr. Trunkey can help us put  our money where our mouth is.  Register before Sept. 18 with  Continuing Education at  886-8841 and pay $5. That's a  good investment.  Iris Griffith  uAHtER  PUNNING  WORKSHOP  Women wanting career planning or  who are interested In applying tor a  Small Business Assistant's Job Bo-  Entry Program should attend a  workshop:  Thursday, September 24  10* 3 pm  Capilano College, Sechelt  Potential students will explore their  personai suitability for entering the  Job 8e*Entry Program, through a  self-evaluation. Careerplarming will  be available and more information  generally will be provided about Cot-  lege programs.  This workshop Is free. Please  register by casing 88S 9310 between  12:30 and 7:00 pm, Monday to f ridey*  duce loud, obnoxious talking,  and or yelling, along with unruly behaviour. The accompanying possibility is also property  damage.  To be more specific, the first  ball tourney cost us glasses  (broken around the pool area),  damage to a wall as a result of a  fight (monies for repair are still  outstanding), diving from the  roof into the pool (threatened  eviction with repeated monitoring cooled the activity), all causing me to wonder whether these  adults also have to be babysat to  ensure civilized behaviour! A  recent family celebration needed  me to go out at 2:15 am to try  to dull the racket coming from  several of the rooms. The offenders seemed to feel that since  their group had booked out the  place, wasn't that allowed?  They, however, did not have to  field the many complaints from  their fellow guests the next morning as a result of their nocturnal goings-on. Not to mention  that one could have used a  crowbar to try and rouse the  same people at check-out time!  None of the above 'gripes'  even cover the state of the  rooms the maids are then required to clean (granted, they  are being paid to clean), or the  extra time it takes to restore the  rooms to the condition they  were in upon occupancy.  The sad result from all of this  is that the younger age group  that do behave themselves  discreetly, and with responsibility, get tarred with the brush that  the behaviour of their  predecessors put upon them.  But that's another story!  I suppose when all is said and  done, these are the hazards of  being in the service industry, but  it makes it a trial for the family  people that are only looking for  an enjoyable, relaxing time  away from home.

Chamber notes  A busy 1987  keeps on going  by Gail Sangster  During the summer the directors and members of the Sechelt  District Chamber of Commerce  (SDCC) have taken an interest  in the herring fishing in Porpoise Bay, the proposed land  swap and gravel mining in the  Sechelt area and, aquaculture  on the Sunshine Coast.  With summer on its way out,  preparations for Celebration  Days 1988 have once again  begun - the date next year will  be July 2, so prepare in advance  and tell all your friends.  Once again it is time to  honour our Citizen of the Year  -the deadline for nominations  has been extended to September  18.  The Information Booth has  been extremely busy this summer. Thank you to Jennifer,  Paige, Heidi and Michelle for  doing such a great job.  Our inquiries were up 46 percent from last year, with well  over 6000 visitors through the  centre. The hours of the centre  are 9 am to 4:30 pm, Monday to  Friday, all year round, so if you  need an accommodation guide,  a map of areas all over B.C. or  just a ferry schedule, drop in to  see Gail.  The next general meeting and  election of directors for the'  SDCC will be held on Tuesday,  September 29, 12 pm at the  Wharf Restaurant. The price  will be $7.50. Nominations for  directors will be accepted from  the floor.  Membership in the Chamber  of Commerce can be individual,  small business, company or corporation, so if you are new to  the area or have been here a  lifetime - don't forget to join,  it's a great way to get involved.  For more information call Gail  at 885-3100.  Congratulations to the Sunshine   Coast   Aquaculture  Association   for   a   successful ,  convention!  Langdale to be  erased from signs  by Ken Collins  The Department of Highways along with the B.C. Ferry  Corporation are going to erase  Langdale from their signs and  schedules and Area F Regional  Director Shaske thinks it is a  good idea.  "What's a Langdale?" he  asked at the SCRD meeting  Thursday evening. He stated  that for the people coming to  Gibsons or Sechelt, the destination of Langdale was confusing.  Consequently, there will be an  attempt to remove that name  from people's minds.  It is planned, Shaske explained, to erect a lit sign at the place  currently referred to as Langdale that will have 'Sunshine  Coast' in large letters, and  below it Gibsons, Sechelt, and  Powell River.  The ferries will try to follow  suit on their printed schedules.  Shaske moved approval and the  board was in agreement that  Langdale as well as Earls Cove  should no longer be a destination.

At  the secondary level there were  49 fewer students than expected, but, as Superintendent  Art Holmes told the school  board members at the Septem-  New faces  on staff  Some new faces have emerged as School District 46 completed staff changes, for the fall.  Twenty-two   new   teachers  have been appointed, two of  whom are United Kingdom exchange teachers. Vaughan Berry  of  Leigh-on-Sea,   Essex,   and  Paul Duke from Stourport on  Severn,   Worchester,   England  will begin their programs this  year.  Two new French Immersion  teachers, Gabriele Bonneau of  Fort McMurray, Alberta, and  Roger Lagasse, formerly of  School District 15 (Penticton)  join the Elphinstone and Sechelt  Elementary staff, respectively.  Martyn Wilson leaves the  principalship of Pender Harbour Secondary School after six  years to undertake a similar  position at Elphinstone. He will  be replaced at Pender by June  Maynard until the end of this  calendar year. Maynard will  also serve as supervising principal at Madeira Park Elementary School.  Halfmoon Bay Elementary  has hired its first principal, Paul  Fairweather, who was a principal in the Prince Rupert  school district, and Jim  McGowan of School District 75  (Mission) comes to the Sunshine  Coast to become the new vice-  principal at Chatelech Secondary School.  ber 8 meeting, high school  students often miss the first  week of school due to summer  job commitments.  The increased numbers of  elementary students could mean  an additional $100,000 to the  school district from the Ministry  of Education, who contribute  $3471 for each student enrolled.  Assistant Superintendent  Jack Pope jeported that there  were 35 requests for cross boundary transfers, and that these  would be dealt with in the next  few days.  In other school board news,  Trustee Doris Fuller requested  clarification of an earlier motion regarding French Immersion students. It was decided  that French Immersion students  would be admitted to the program at the higher levels only if  they had been attending a  similar program at another  school.  The matter of the school bus  stop at Snodgrass Road has still  not been resolved. In an earlier  discussion with the district,  Mrs. Griffith expressed concern  for the safety of the children  who wait for the bus at the corner of Snodgrass and Highway  101. George Hopkins of the  Sechelt School Bus Company  was strongly opposed to two  previous suggestions, considering them both very unsafe. Still  another alternative has been  suggested and Secretary  Treasurer Roy Mills will report  the results to the board at the  next meeting.  Mr. Mel Campbell presented  a case for the nine children of  the Agamemnon Channel  region, of Jervis Inlet who  presently have no school and no-  teacher. He suggested that it  would be cheaper and more  convenient to have a teacher  travel to the camps and fish  farms, rather than try to  establish a school and thereby  deal with the difficulties of  transporting the children by  water.
