Array Inaccuracies cited  Gerry Berthelet, acting president of Area B Ratepayers, makes a point at last week's SCRD meeting.  Story below. ���Penny Fuller photo  Halfmoon Bay irate  Park use debated  Residents of the Halfmoon  Bay area clashed with directors  at the Regional Board meeting  last Thursday night over the  issue of camping at Coopers  Green.  Last spring the board had  given permission for the Sechelt  Campers Club to park their  recreational vehicles on Coopers  Green for the upcoming Labour  Day weekend.  Gerry Berthelet, acting president of the Area B Ratepayers  Association, addressed the  meeting about the residents'  concerns. He pointed out that  the signs posted at Coopers  Green prohibit overnight camping at any time and said that on  the holiday weekend the park is  full of people wanting to use the  beach and boat ramp. Residents  were afraid access to these  facilities would be blocked and  that it would be impossible to  keep others from camping in the  park if one group was already  doing it.  Area A director Gordon  Wilson responded to Berthelet's  concerns by stating he felt the  board had made a mistake in  granting permission, and that it  owed the residents an apology.  He listed the issues which  needed to be dealt with: the  policy itself which had resulted  in permission being granted, the  fact that chairman Jim Gurney  was a member of the Sechelt  Campers Club and untrue accusations that he had exercised  influence in the granting of permission, and the fact that permitting campers to use the  Green was taking business away  from commercial campgrounds.  Wilson also said he had only  recently become aware that new  pipes had been laid in Coopers  Green and there was concern  that the weight of the RVs  would damage them. He suggested a new policy be hammered out at the next parks  committee meeting but felt it  was too late to rescind permission to the RV campers' club  for this long weekend.  Berthelet disagreed: "I suggest you made a mistake and  you correct it."  He cautioned the board that  people in the area are angry and  that if the campers arrive he had  been told there could be civil  disobedience.  Directors Peggy Connor and  Gordon Wilson reacted angrily.-  "I don't like any group to come  and threaten an elected board,"  Connor stated.  Berthelet explained he wasn't  threatening, he was making  them aware of what he had been  told. But Wilson was not ap  peased and sternly lectured the  audience on responsible government.  Halfmoon Bay resident Ron  Mack rose and said he hoped  the camper's club would withdraw voluntarily, now that they  were aware of people's feelings.  A motion was passed that the  regional district write to the  club, detailing the discussions  that had taken place, instructing  them to keep the boat-launching  ramp and facilities clear, and  leaving the decision to their  discretion.  Cecil Chamberlain, wagon  master of the Sechelt Campers  Club, then rose and pointed out  that his club had followed all  the correct procedures and no  opposition had been raised until  recently.  "Where, at this time," he  asked, "are we to go, where we  can get facilities for 18 vehicles  on Labour Day weekend?"  CRD objects to  coastal report  The provincial government  released the long awaited  Coastal Resource Identification  Study (CRIS) at last week's  meeting of the foreshore task  force and before the day was  out the Sunshine Coast  Regional District (SCRD) had  expressed dissatisfaction with  the report.  The report was in the form of  a glossy brochure subtitled,  Aquaculture Opportunities  Sechelt-Sunshine Coast, and  contains a large map indicating  areas where applications for fish  farms will be processed as  usual, areas where limited  aquaculture opportunities exist,  and those areas where no applications will be considered.  At the SCRD meeting held on  August 27, Director Gordon  Wilson charged that the  brochure did not accurately  reflect the data accumulated by  Catherine Berris and the user  conflicts shown in her. study.  Acting on Wilson's recommendation the SCRD voted to write  to Forest and Lands 'distancing  themselves' from the brochure  and stating their 'dissatisfaction  with the inaccuracies'.  In a related development the  Ministries of Agriculture and  Fisheries and Lands and Forests  issued a joint press release announcing the lifting of the  moratorium on finfish aquaculture in the Sechelt-Sunshine  Coast area' effective August 19.  Lands Minister Dave Parker  said information on finfish  aquaculture opportunities and  application guidelines was  "available from regional land offices of the Ministry of Forests  and Lands, presumably the  CRIS brochure.  Director Gordon Wilson, in  whose area most of the fish  farms are located, is reported to  have told members of the Sunshine Coast Liberal Association  at a recent meeting that 'the  manner in which fish farming  has been allowed to develop in  B.C. may well prove a colossal  mistake affecting the entire  food fish industry'.  Wilson took particular issue  with sex hormone drug testing  on the Coast with what he termed inadequate supervision, and  a lack of 'proper advanced  study or adequate knowledge of  the market place'. He compared  the approach taken to fish farming to that taken in the  development of North East  Coal.  "This blundering approach  to economic growth has become  the hallmark of Social Credit,"  the candidate for the leadership  of the provincial Liberals told  his local supporters.  Community Futures  Committee named  Mary Collins, M.P.  (Capilano), announced Tuesday, on behalf of Employment  and Immigration Minister,  Benoit Bouchard, the formation  of a Community Futures Committee for the Sechelt-Sunshine  Coast of British Columbia. The  Sechelt-Sunshine Coast was  selected for Community Futures  assistance in January 1987.  The committee comprises  representatives from business,  labour, government and community. Its task is to look at opportunities for developing and  diversifying the local economy  and to seek the most appropriate ways to use Community Futures funding.  "I am impressed with the  members selected to form this  committee," Mrs. Collins said.  "These prominent representatives of the local community  share a wide range of interests  and experience that will allow  them to approach their mandate  from a broad perspective."  .;,:, The committee members are: .^  Syd Heal, Sunshine Coast  Aquaculture; Bill Bailey,  Sechelt and District Chamber of  Commerce; Art Giroux, Sunshine Coast Aquaculture; D'arcy Burk, Gibsons and District  Chamber of Commerce; Sheila  Kitson, Small Business Gibsons;  Irene Lugsdin, Sunshine Coast  Regional District; William  McKinnon, Small Business  Halfmoon Bay; Lynda Olsen,  Organized Labour Sunshine  Coast; Elaine Futterman, Sunshine Coast Arts Council; Gayle  Preston, Social Services Gibsons; Barrie Wilbee, Sunshine  Coast Employment Development Society; and Douglas Jardine, Capilano College Sechelt.  Committee Futures, part of  the Canadian Jobs Strategy,  helps communities hard hit by  layoffs or chronic unemployment to identify, develop and  implement measures to expand  employment and help individuals adjust to their  economic environment.  Ferry news  B.C. Ferry Corporation will extend the summer ferry  schedule for the Langdale-Horseshoe Bay and Earls Cove-  Saltery Bay crossings until October 13.  Harold Long, MLA for Mackenzie riding, said he was  "delighted" with the news. Long said negotiations are continuing with the Corporation regarding reinstatement of the  10:30 am sailing from Langdale on a year-round basis.  End of Summer  The Gibsons Summer Fun for Kids and French Twist programs joined together for an end-of-summer  party last week. Ken Collins photo  EDC future still under debate  by Penny Fuller  The future of the Economic  Development Commission  (EDC) was again brought into  question at last week's meeting  of the Sunshine Coast Regional  District.  A joint letter was received  from Mayor Bud Koch of  Sechelt and Gibsons Mayor  Diane Strom which stated:  "Notice was given by the  District of Sechelt and the Town  of Gibsons that 1987 will be our  last year of participation in the  EDC function unless all aspects  of the EDC are structured and  operated in a manner acceptable  to all parties."  The letter went on to say the  two municipalities had met and  agreed that "considerable dissatisfaction remains." It suggested a meeting be held to explore possible changes in the  structure and direction of the  EDC.  Although chairman Jim Gurney had composed a terse reply,  suggesting the public did not  seem to have a problem with the  EDC but agreeing that with the  Canada   Futures   committee  coming on-stream a new structure should be considered,  director Gordon Wilson questioned whether or not the  SCRD should continue participating at all.  Gurney proposed a top-notch  unbiased consultant be hired to  study the function and make recommendations for change. But  Wilson countered: "I don't  think the finest consultant in the  world can address the problem  of the inability of people on this  coast to work together. We'll  end up in the same position  we're in now, having just spent  more money."  Wilson pointed out that the  attitudes of the people involved  from the municipalities and the  SCRD make it impossible to  reach any agreements.  However, Gurney was determined the SCRD remain active  in economic development. "The  decision that faces the board is:  Do we bow to those attitudes,  or do we go ahead and do our  best for the community?"  Gibsons alderman Norm  Peterson  challenged  Gurney's  own attitude. "We're talking  about attitudes here and yet you  always talk about the two municipalities being wrong. But  we're not always wrong,  sometimes you're wrong.  "It all comes down to a lot of  petty political differences between heads of state; to bickering amongst a few people."  Gordon Wilson agreed and  added that everyone on the  councils and the regional board  had to honestly look at where  their own egos had interfered  Please turn to page 7 2.  Coast News, August 31,1987  Unblemished  The move made last week by the Sunshine Coast  Regional District (SCRD) in 'distancing themselves' from  the end product of the Coastal Resource Identification  Study released by the provincial government has to be seen  to be for domestic consumption only.  The fact that the SCRD is already distanced from the  decision making process is mutely testified to by the map  of aquaculture opportunities released which seems to ignore the Wl zoning imposed by the SCRD forbidding fish  farming near residential areas.  In a recent address to the Powell River Regional District  (PRRD) recently, reported in the Powell River News, Area  A Director Gordon Wilson cautioned the PRRD against  losing credibility with Victoria if they expected to be effective in having input into decisions on fish farm applications.  Wilson is reported to have indicated that his own  regional district, that is to say yours, was regarded as being  'emotional' on the issue and to have diminished effectiveness as a result.  It is always instructive to contemplate what politicians  say away from their home turf. We do not recall Wilson  cautioning his fellow directors on the SCRD against an  'emotional' approach. It will be recalled that the SCRD in  its planning by-law of 1985 originally threw the whole of  Wl zoning open to fish farming. Then the Wood Bay fish  farm suddenly appeared and, under Wilson's urging, the  SCRD reversed itself and closed Wl zoning on fish farms.  This wild pendulum swing from fish farming everywhere to fish farming nowhere is the root cause of the  SCRD's lack of credibility and effectiveness on this issue.  To attempt to use zoning, which must be approved by Victoria, as a tool to fight the provincial government was  always a questionable tactic. Perhaps Wilson could have  had a bigger impact if he had spoken locally against an  emotional approach a year and a half ago.  Whatever the case, the evidence is in that this regional  district for all its huffing and puffing is virtually without  influence in this crucial area. Their record on this issue is  unblemished by success.  Two points  A few short comments on the issue of recreational  vehicles on Cooper's Green would seem in order.  Given the long battle to acquire the Green as a day park  for the community, the decision to allow a recreational  group to book it for the use the Sunshine Coast Regional  District had objected to for years must be termed surprising. It may be true that Chairman Jim Gurney being a  member of the recreational club had no bearing on the surprising decision but many will be difficult to persuade.  The possibility of civil disobedience brought a stern lecture from Director Gordon Wilson to the upset residents  of Area B.

In Gibsons  Resident's tale of water troubles  by Gail Fredricksen  Water is a service for which I  am indeed taxed! On detecting a  definite deterioration to the  water I contacted the Superintendent of Public Works for  the Town of Gibsons, Mr. Marchand, to find out when last our  water line was flushed out.  There was no record. On inquiring as to whether or not the  Davis Road line was 'looped', I  discovered that it is served by a  single dead-end line to either  side of the block long street.  Totally dissatisfied with the  lack of immediate concern by  the towns' employee, I contacted the Health Department  and asked Mr. Brooks if it was  possible to have a water sample  taken. He mentioned that he  tested the water at the source  and at the swimming pool onli"  regular basis, but would accommodate me on my request.  The test came back with a  fecal count of T and a total  coliform count of '6' (87.06.24)  prompting another immediate  test. I suggested that this sample  be taken at the residence next  door as it was on the end of the  line and they, too, had detected  a noted change in the water.  This water sample had a fecal  count of '3' and a total coliform  count of '19'. There was a problem! In just two weeks  (87.07.08) the count had tripled!  I contacted Mr. Marchand  advising him that I now had two  water samples taken and that I  wanted the water line flushed  out! Reluctantly a works crew  set about trying to locate the  original water line. (Verbal  assistance was totally ignored as  the neighbours volunteered to  dig up their shrubbery in order  to ensure that the valve was pro  perly installed at the end of the  line). The result was that a  flush-out valve of fashion was  installed some 11 to 19 feet  short of the end of the line  which supplies water to those  houses on the north side of  Davis Road only.  Another week passed and I  again contacted Mr. Marchand  to ask when the project would  be completed. I was told that it  was. I questioned the location  of the 'flush-out' valve. He said  that the water situation was not  just my problem but that of the  community, that I was the only  one complaining.  I then contacted Mr. Maxwell, local alderman, to see  what he could do about having  the job properly finished. (The  ��� 'dug-out' between the two  residential driveways has now  ""'"been capped l arid the ground  since replaced and seeded).  There is some question in the  minds of many whether or not  the valve installed is in fact a  proper 'flush-out' valve. And, if  the location is not serving only a  few of the residents rather than  those who fought to have it installed.  Mrs. Goddard, Town Administrator, has since told me  that our system is now on the  well rather than on the former  source creeks which normally  serve our zone. That is fine for  today! But, that does not  remedy the situation. Come the  rains we will again be on the  original source of creeks, which  in my view, is not properly  monitored or it would not have  taken three to four weeks of my  persistent hounding to discover  that there was a problem that  had to be addressed without my  having to solicit the assistance  of the Department of Health.  To Mr. Brooks, may I tender  my thanks.  It is public knowledge that  the Town of Gibsons has a very  old, degenerate water system.  Surely a long term plan could be  introduced to replace a few lines  per year without added cost to  the taxpayer. How many residents actually know the source  of their water supply? There are  three zones in the Town of Gibsons. Not all of them are only  well supplied.  Having been personally involved with a community water  system prior to being transferred to Gibsons, I am familiar  with the sort of matter that  adheres to the interiors of water  pipes fed by creeks and streams  in particular. The lines have to  be flushed out, regularly!  I may be labelled as an 'angry  resident' but I can assure you  that the situation which I have  just been through, and will still  be facing, is unnecessary. This  should be addressed by those  bodies representing the interests  of the taxpayers of the Town of  Gibsons.

Nuclear Times, great articles  and lots of information from  the United States. Coast News, August 31,1987  Editor:  Oh no! here we go again . . .  Who could have imagined  that Vic Walters, developer,  promoter, businessman, would,  after a lifetime of bustle and  hustle, re-emerge as an apparent  adherent of the Greenpeace  view of things? We hope he has  not got too dizzy from the  rapidity of the spin!  It's certainly an ironic  predicament for our Sechelt Indian People who have sat by  silently over the decades while  predatory folk like Mr. Walters  have ravaged and desecrated  our aboriginal lands for the  benefit of their own pockets.  Now we are to be stopped from  our own development by  Walters-led agitation ... ?!  Can this be the very same Vic  Walters who came to "our  boardroom on September 11,  1986, to ask if he could participate in this development, if  he could move out his own  gravel through the intended  conveyor system, who stressed  to us the benefits of joint venturing and cooperativeness?  Is this the same man whose  business associates were here as  recently as May this year asking  ". . . if we could utilize the  facility for our Sechelt plant,  paying a toll, of course, for the  tonnage over the load-out?"  In truth, this appears to us to  be a classic case of sour-grapes  ��� "if I can't play, nobody's  going to play." It does Mr.  Walters no credit; it is a  despicable affront to our people.  Mayor Koch's bizarre outburst has, fortunately, been admirably dealt with in the Coast  News editorial of August 24. Of  course, every level of government affected has known about  the project all along. Mayor  Koch's letter to the Premier is  merely illustrative of his own  reluctance to check the facts  and deal with us on the respectful basis of a neighbouring  government. We are confident  that Mr. Vander Zalm will not  be swayed by this type of inappropriate approach.  While we are on the subject,  let us also mention the mean-  spirited remarks of Ms. Diana  Davidson. This is the mentality  that, more than anything else,  pains Indian people. Her entire  argument against the gravel  development fails to make a  single mention of Indian involvement: we apparently do  not exist, in Ms. Davidson's  jaundiced perception.  What would she seriously  propose for us? That we live on  welfare? That we tell our young  people to leave the community  because there are no jobs? That  we end our participation in the  world economy?  Can people like Ms. Davidson ever look out from their  own narrow-mindedness and  visualize the needs of others, the  needs of people different from  themselves?  Let us end with a definitive  statement: the gravel project is  going to go ahead because our  people want it. We support it  fully, and we will fight to see it  proceed fully.  If the Vic Walters, Bud Koch  and Diana Davidson fraternity  wish to try and stop us, that is  their prerogative. But the  Sechelt Indian Band will prevail  and we shall move forward yet  again.  Chief Thomas Paul  Councillor Lloyd Jeffries  Councillor Lenora Joe  Councillor Warren Paull  Councillor Benedict Pierre  Sechelt Indian Band  Revitalization  in Sechelt  Editor:  The question of whether or  not downtown Sechelt is a can-  ' didate for revitalization has now  . been answered.  By injecting an element of  ''. fear into the affected property  owners, based on a "perceived"  . legal problem with the conceptual drawings as presented to  ; those owners, the project has  ; died.  The "perceived" legal problem could have been simply  and quickly dealt with, in my  opinion,   thus  resulting  in  a  ��� possible affirmative vote on this  specific issue.  My concern as a member of  the Downtown Revitalization  Committee is that "due  process" was not at all observed. In fact, quite the reverse.  Could it be that those who were  actively soliciting the negative  votes had some ulterior  motives? I can only assume this  to be the case, and only time  will tell if those assumptions are  correct.  The sad and unfortunate part  about this whole revitalization  question has got to be the fact  that the chairman, Bill Bailey,  AQUILA AIR.  New service ��� only TO minutes  lo Vancouver International Airport  3 TIMES DAILY from Sechelt Airport  RESERVATIONS: 885-971 1  or call your Travel Agent  has worked tirelessly for the last  two years on this project, only  to have it sabotaged at the  eleventh hour in its initial phase.  This is a sad reflection on the  spirit of co-operation when  your own committee members,  for whatever motives, legitimate  or otherwise, can have such influence. Is it any wonder that  volunteer committee membership is so difficult to obtain,  when this sort of subversive action is taking place?  Out of all this comes the indication that chairman Bill  Bailey is still willing to work  with his committee and the  Sechelt Council in order to give  Revitalization a second chance.  If the regulatory authorities  permit this taking place almost  immediately then the "perceived" legal problems with the  conceptual drawings can be addressed, with details to be worked out with the committee and  property owners in step 2 of  phase 1 of Sechelt Downtown  Revitalization. With such input  at this stage the detailed and  final product of the revitalization will be the result of the consensus of property owners.  Revitalization deserves a second look, with "due process"  being observed throughout the  entire proceedings.  M.J.C.

Ken Collins photo  Roberts    Cre&k  Big meeting upcoming  by Jeanie Parker, 885-2163  Make a note on your calendar: the next Community  Association meeting is  September 16. Up for discussion will be the controversial  ball-fields in Cliff Gilker Park  and the negotiations between  the regional district and the golf  course.  " As noted earlier in this column, nothing will be decided  regarding the golf club's proposed expansion without a  public vote. And the regional  board's meetings are open to  the public, so anybody who is  interested can attend.  Also on. the agenda for the  Community Association meeting is a motion for the sale of  part of the piece of land behind  the Post Office. Neighbouring  property owner Philip Locke  would like to acquire the acre or  so of flat land at the bottom of  the hill from the Community  Association.  The association executive had  recommended the request be  ^denied- because it was felt the  J land might prove to be valuable  : to the community in the future.  i Many years ago, there was a  j playground   there   and   con  sideration is being given to putting in another one.  But the matter must go to a  vote of the general membership,  and there must be a sufficient  proportion of the membership  present, to conduct the vote.  Therefore, all eligible voters  (those who have been members  of the Community Association  for one full year) are requested  to attend the meeting, at the  Community Hall on September  16 at 8.pm.  LIBRARY OPENING  Everyone is cordially invited  to the grand opening of the new  addition to the Roberts Creek  Community Librairy tomorrow,  September 1. Coffee and cake  will be served from 1 to 4 pm,  and members and non-members  alike can have a look at the  vastly-expanded facilities.  BOYS BURNED  Some local youths have been  indulging in a dangerous past-  time this summer: playing with  gasoline and fire. Two Roberts  Creek boys have been seriously  burned.

GUIDES GIVE REFUGE  A man and woman in a  Zodiac sought refuge on the  beach of the Girl Guide Camp  last week.  They were heading to Halfmoon Bay, but it was getting  dark and their boat was partly  filled with water.  They spent the night on shore  drying out their gear and left the  next afternoon to continue their  trip up the Coast. They said  next time they would read up on  boating, tides and coastal  navigation before setting off  from Vancouver for a week on  the ocean.  FALSE ALARM  The Roberts Creek volunteer  firemen and their guests were  enjoying their annual barbecue  at the country estate of Peter  and Janette Gordon when what  should they notice but smoke  pouring out of the workshop  behind the house.  Peter ran to rescue his golf  clubs, only to realize the billows  of smoke were the vanilla*,  scented product of a smoke?  simulator!  COMMANDER VISITS  The first fall meeting of the  Roberts Creek Legion ladies  auxiliary is Monday, September  14. Auxiliary zone commander  Pat Schindel will be there to  meet with the members.  HOMEMADE CONTEST  Home canners might like to  put aside a jar for the contest at  the Volunteer Action Centre's  annual Harvest Faire, at Sechelt  Elementary on October 17.  There are categories for jams,  jellies, marmalades, chutneys,  relishes, pickles, canned fruit  and vegetables, wine, beer and  fresh produce, including the  most unusual veggie.  Lodge use  input sought  How can Rockwood Lodge  be most useful to the various  community groups on the Sunshine Coast?  The Rockwood Lodge Society is looking for information  concerning space needs, from  community groups who wish to  use the Lodge for recreational  or cultural activities, for learning, for workshops, seminars,  get-togethers, or similar events  that enhance the lifestyle on the  Coast.  There is a wide variety of  spaces available in the lodge,  which is going to be renovated  to make it more useful to the  community. There are rooms  for large and small meetings,  spaces that would be perfect for  music or drama rehearsals,  areas that could be boardrooms  or offices, spaces that could be  developed for art or craft  workshops ��� and even food  service facilities.  The non-profit society needs  to know how your group's  space needs could be met, using  Rockwood Lodge.

Ken Collins photo  Sechelts make  the final vote  Last week the Sechelt Indian  Band voted to approve all. eight  of the final amendments to the  Band Constitution.  They became law by a  declaration by the Governor-  General in Council. Most of the  amendments were housekeeping  ones, relating to issues such as  voting procedures and meetings. However, two of them  were felt by band representatives to be of general interest.  The first one has to do with  who should be considered a  band member. The original text  used the wording "and legitimate" which was thought to  be both misleading and ambiguous. The revised text now  reads, "A person is entitled to  be entered on the Band List as a  member of the Sechelt Indian  Band if he or she is the natural  child of a member of the Sechelt  Indian Band, unless the parents  of that child are a non-Indian  and a widowed Sechelt Band  Member who has no Indian  blood. Where a member of  another Indian Band is legally  adopted by a Sechelt Band  Member that member of the  other Indian Band shall be entitled to Sechelt Band membership."  The other amendment had to  do with powers the council requires to make the laws  necessary for good government.  These powers are over matters  such as zoning and land use,  public order, and taxation.  The next step will be negotiations with the province and  Chief Tom Paul says he sees no  reason for them not to go  smoothly.  Cap College  moves in  Capilano College in Sechelt  will be moving into its new  quarters on Thursday and Friday, September 3 and 4.  The new building is not far  from the present campus space,  on Inlet Avenue.  The college office will be closed during the move and will reopen September 8. While landscaping and paving are not  complete, the college will be  open for general inquiries and  registrations in the midst of putting finishing touches on the  construction.  The new building was designed by local architect Kevin Ryan  as the permanent home of Capilano College on the Sunshine  Coast. Replacing leased facilities, and only slightly larger  than the original space, the new  building  was designed to be  more flexible and multifunctional. In this way, the  diverse and changing educational and community needs can  be better met in the new  building.  The same courses and services advertised in the Fall Term  Brochure recently released  through the mail will be offered  at the new campus. These include counselling, a library,  learning assistance, the  Aquaculture Resource Centre  and the newly opened Small  Business Centre, providing  counselling for those in, or  thinking of starting, a small  business.  Please watch for the Open  House at the new campus, happening sometime in October.  For course information call  885-9310 from 12:30 to 7 pm.  Education minister Tony  Brummet wants school boards  to release names and addresses  of teachers employed by them,  and the Sunshine Coast School  District has said "No."  According to Brummet, the  BCTF has such a list and it gives  them unfair advantage when it  comes to organizing teachers  against the new Bill 20.  "It is the government's belief  that the decisions (teachers)  made should be. based on accurate, unbiased information as  provided by a variety of  sources," he states in an August  5 letter to the Sunshine Coast  School Board.  He notes that school boards  have lists of home addresses of  teachers and argues these lists  should be made available to any  person or group with a legitimate reason for wishing to  contact teachers concerning  their options under Bill 20. If  the lists are not made available,  Brummet says, he will find a  way to contact teachers anyway.  "I realize," he writes, "that  this may represent a significant  departure from the. procedures  which your district and the  Ministry have followed in the  past but our teachers are faced  with an important decision and  it is imperative that we assist the  process of open discussion."  "I find that absolutely  repulsive!" commented School  Trustee Doris Fuller, and the  board voted to continue the  practice of not releasing information of a personal nature to  anyone.  Town of Gibsons  The Town of Gibsons is inviting proposals for the preparation of  the text for an investment-oriented brochure to promote  Economic Development. The text is to be written using a guideline  prepared by the Ministry of Municipal Affairs from information  already compiled in the "Gibsons Economic Development  Strategy Plan."  Details of previous writing and/or marketing experience and  samples of writing, should be included with'the proposal which  should be submitted by September 15,1987, to:  Clerk-Administrator  Town of Gibsons  P.O.

In your garden  you've got the biggest squash  since Columbus hit North  America and your wine has a  bouquet that would make an  angel sing.  Now, what are you going to  do with all these culinary taste  delights?  You could put aside your best  example of jam, jelly, chutney,  relish, pickles, canned fruit or  vegetables, marmalade, beer,  wine or fresh produce, and bring it to the Volunteer Harvest  Fair Tall Fare' contest to be  held on Saturday, October 17 at  the Sechelt Elementary School  gym.  There, panels of judges,  selected for their fine palates  and impartial judgement, will  taste your wares and choose the  best among them;  At the same time you can  look at the dozens of displays of  volunteer groups from all over  the Sunshine Coast, hear some  good music, buy a balloon, sit  down for a muffin and coffee  or have a tasty lunch.  There'll be door prizes and  clowns, face painting, and  you'll probably see old friends  and learn about all the volunteer activity in the community.

He admitted he had made  some mistakes and said he had  now tried to rectify those. He  urged board members to stop  focussing discussion against the  other organizations.  Regarding the EDC, he said:  "We have to have a multilateral  agreement on how to proceed.  Alderman Peterson said Gibsons would find it difficult to  approve study on the EDC. "I  sit here and everyone on this  board shoots down the idea of a  restructuring study because they  say a study doesn't tell you  anything. I don't see how we  could support a study on the  EDC, then."  While it was agreed a meeting  of the three political bodies was  necessary, it wasn't until the end  of the meeting that alternate  director Lynn Chapman suggested a meeting that simply  followed the same patterns as  previous meetings would be  useless, and that perhaps bringing in a consultant who helps  organizations improve communications would be helpful.

Roby Kidd has had more influence on our Canadian culture  .than most of us know, yet he is  ��rio legendary figure. Certainly  ��he gained no national reputation like another one-time resident of Gibsons, J.S.

For 35 years, through his  teaching, his writings, his work  as an administrator, Roby Kidd  always remained steadfast to his  motto that, 'through learning  and co-operation human beings  could attain a world of  understanding,' to quote Peterson. Kidd called this premise his  social gospel.  Roby Kidd's commitment to  adult education "for responsible citizenship" led, by 1961, to  programs undertaken by all  provinces and consequently by  many school boards. UBC set  up a graduate program in the  field in 1957, the first in  Canada, following an initial  credit course taught by Kidd.  During his years as an administrator in the Canadian  Association for Adult Education, in the Ontario Institute for  Studies in Education, and in  other agencies in Canada, Kidd  pressed for the development of  a professional discipline in the  adult education field.  Kidd was among the first to  see the need for programs for  _  FAMILY BULK FOODS &  DELICATESSEN  UNDER THE YELLOW AWNING, Cowrie St., 885-7767  We feature a wide variety of cold meats,  cheese, feta,Calamata olives, and bulk spices.

Groups such as the elderly,  women, single parents, our  native people, can acknowledge  to some degree Roby Kidd's  work for ihe changed public  views of their situations.  After he presided over the second UNESCO world conference on adult education in  1960, Kidd became known  world-wide and so took part in  projects in adult education in  the Caribbean, Alaska, India,  Africa and China. Out of all  this he earnestly hoped to see  the beginnings of a world  brotherhood and universal  justice through continuing  education. His policy was  always to see adult education remain a non-partisan social  movement tempered by a professional outlook.  In another week's review of  Kidd's life and career, his ' Gibsons Experience ', by Les Peterson, will be dealt with in some  detail. '..    7;  WILDLIFE/,,-,.. v^,7.: , ? ,'V^  With hunting season soon to *   ���  open, the three wildlife clubs of ..'���  the Sunshine Coast intend toset  up patrols to protect the small  band   of  elk   in   our   region  against poachers and unthinking hunters.  The B.C. Wildlife Federation  welcomes the announcement of  higher fines for hunting offenses, penalties that will certainly help discourage poaching.  The BCWF feels the penalties  could have been even sterner.  "We advocate that judges be  permitted to order fines commensurate to the rarity, worth  and replacement cost of  illegally-killed wildlife."  Although none of the legally-  hunted species is at present endangered, the BCWF deplores  wanton and ignorant hunting  practices, and it offers cash  awards up to $2,000 to encourage citizens to report illegal  hunting activity.

Daffy & Kermit's performance on their initial debut August 25th was so  entertaining and so obviously enjoyed by ferry traffic coming up the hill  as well as local traffic, that Alan Carlow, the proprietor of Jeans & Things  and Arcadia Games located in Sea-View Place Plaza, immediately  decided he would use the zany pair as his contribution to the community at large and its various visitors in the promotion of goodwill for  and in the area.

Capilano College In Sachalt, in  Mmmm, m&m% 12;30 to  Quality, used lumber, bricks, windows, lights, plumbing, etc  by Larry Grafton  Our extraordinary meeting of  September 17 should draw a full  house of members, judging by  the   reaction  that   is   current'  around town.  Members should remember a  couple of things which will  speed things up at the door.  First, Kay McKenzie has asked  that you have your 1987  membership card ready when  entering (a blue card). This will  ensure that only members in  good standing will receive a  ballot to vote on this controversial issue.  Membership for 1987 is nearly 200 below the final total for  1986. This may indicate that a  good portion of last year's  members will not be eligible to  vote unless they renew their  membership prior to the  meeting.  It would be preferable to contact Kay McKenzie at 885-3184  as soon as possible if you fall into this category, as Kay will be  very busy September 17. Unfortunately, Gerry Chailler has  been unable to actively solicit  membership this year due to illness, which accounts for a  good portion of, the deficit.  Again, make yourself completely conversant with our present situation so you can compare the two locations and concessions fairly. Any member of  the building project committee  (John Miller, Mike Timms, Bernie Ackerman) or the finance  portion of the committee (Len  Herder, Larry Grafton) will be  glad to indicate our present'  position, plan-wise and financially. To fairly judge, you most  certainly should have this information at your fingertips prior  to the meeting. You should  specifically remember that we  must be a self-contained entity  to govern our own future.  SEPTEMBER START-UP  Ah, September! Our entire  program will be in full swing  before the month is out. The  following are start-up dates;  consult your activity sheets for  length of program.  Sept. 1: executive meeting, 10  am; Sept. 2: 69ers singing practice, 1:30pm; Sept. 3: crafts, 10  am; Sept. 7: carpet bowling in  progress, 1:30 pm; Sept. 8: Aggravation, 1:30 pm; Sept. 9:  seniors' exercises, 11 am-12  noon; Sept. 9: painting, 1-5 pm;  Sept. 10: carpet bowling in progress, 1:30 pm; Sept. 11, 5-pin  bowling, 10:30 am and 1 pm;  Davis Bay  plagued by  foul odour  An overwhelming stench has  been plaguing residents of the  Davis Bay area off and on for  the last month, but so far no  one has been able to track down  the source of the foul odour.  Public Health Inspector Jim  Brooks, told the Coast News  last week that he had tested  water in the area for coliform  counts and nothing extraordinary has shown up.  While the test results, do  nothing to throw a light on the  source of the problem, they do  indicate that it is not related to  human sewage disposal, and  Brooks can reassure people that  the bay is safe for recreational  use.  The smell seems to come  from Chapman Creek and complaints have been received from  people living between Mission  Point Road and the Community  Hall which is near Davis Bay  Elementary School. It seems to  be most pervasive in the early  morning hours, residents  report.  When contacted by the Coast  News Zaheer Manki, of the  Waste Management Branch of  the Ministry of the Environment said that he was not aware  of the problem. However, since  a fish hatchery is located on  Chapman Creek, his department will be sending someone  out to do some testing.  Sept. 11: square dancing, 8 pm;  Sept. 12, bridge, 1 pm; Sept. 15:  cribbage and whist, 1:30 pm;  Sept. 17, extraordinary meeting,  regular meeting to follow, 1:30  pm.

PHARMACARE INFO  I am in receipt of a Phar-  macare information summary  from May Yarrow, our seniors'  counsellor, which is of interest  specifically to those of us in the  "65 and over" category. The  plan specifies a 90-day residency  requirement for new arrivals to  B.C. It does not provide any  out-of-province coverage.  Those with active medical  coverage outside of B.C. are ineligible for B.C. Pharmacare.  Under the plan, seniors pay  75% of dispensing fees. The  government, through the Pharmacare program, pays the drug  cost and 25% of the dispensing  fee. If your dispensing fee expenses exceed $125 per person  during the calendar year, you  will be eligible for reimbursement, which will be made  automatically, for that portion  of your payments exceeding  $125. The summary does not  say when reimbursement will be  paid out.  11947 Tannery Rd., Surrey  IfflONOAV'SATURDAy  We also buy used building materials  WITH FEDERAL AMMUNITIOM  FEDERAL  HI-POWER* 82s  ��� High Velocity, Hard-Hitting 22s  ��� Non-Corrosive Priming  ��� Copper-plated Bullets - Solid or  Hollow Point  SALE Box of 50...$239       10 Boxes Of 50...$22"  FEDERAL  ,9!

Ken Collins photo  Pender People 'h* Places  August Person  by Joan Wilson, 883-9606  A treat arrived in my mailbox  this week, a note from August's  Pender Person. She never fails  to remind me about the Community Club swap meets and  anything to do with our health  clinic.  Whenever I am feeling unappreciated, a compliment from  her boosts my spirits. The nicest  part is that her messages are  always on the lovely hasti-notes  with her own pen-and-ink sketches of Pender Harbour.  Vi Tyner is one of the quiet  hard workers who give so much  to our community without seeking recognition. I have spotted  her many times tending the  gardens at the Clinic, keeping  them healthy and trim. She  always has a little table at the  Swap Meet with plants and her  beautiful notes, proceeds going  to the Clinic.  Each time you drive by or  walk into the clinic, say a silent  'thank you' to Vi Tyner for all  her hard, on-going, work. We  appreciate all that you do, Vi,  and the thoughtful, caring person you are!  SAILING SAFELY  All during the year, Pender  Harbour is busy with marine  traffic, as power and sail boats  move in arid around our  beautiful waterways. Many a  Harbour youngster has his or  her first boat long before a first  car, and boating will always be  one of the chief attractions of  our area.  But boaters, unlike drivers,  don't have to pass a test or get a  license before setting out on the  high seas. The presence of the  Coast Guard at Garden Bay is  evidence that many boaters get  into trouble, and quite often  because they don't know basic  boating skills and safety practices.  The Canadian Power and  Sail Squadrons work hard to  help boaters enjoy the water  and their craft safely. If you're  interested in a basic boating  course call Andy Hayes at  883-1121 or 883-1112 for information on this fall's offering,  which starts September 15.  WELCOME BACK!  Phyllis and Bill Knutson have  just returned to the Harbour  after a visit to son Martin and  his family in the Yukon. Bill  had a very close call en route,  but is now recuperating at  home.  HARBOUR ARTISTS  The new art gallery in Markle  S. Myers Regional Park has  been a great success over the  summer. If you have your eye  on a special painting by Noreen  Marshall, Wendy Simmonds or  another of our Harbour artists,  better hurry in and buy it before  the gallery closes on September  13.

Coast News, August 31,1987  Cyclists strain for position on the challenging Halfmoon Bay hill.  See story below. ���Ten Dawe photo  70 enter  Bicycle race  biggest ever  by Ten Dawe  There is something intensely  consuming about a bicycle race.  Maybe it's the sheer physical;  exertion involved, maybe the  balance of strategy and luck:  break out of the pack too soon  and you don't have reserves to  sprint for the finish; too late  and you haven't given your  fullest.  The Race Across the Sechelts  on Sunday August 23,  from  Earls Cove to Gibsons, gave  -Coast residents a chance to see  their   biggest and fastest race  yet, with over 70 riders entered.  Last year's racers covered the  distance  in  two  hours,   four  minutes.  This year the competitors smashed the two-hour  mark in a blistering race set by  Rob Isherwood, at one hour, 58  minutes, 12 seconds, with Mike  Fitzmorris   a   split-second  behind.  Isherwood and Fitzmorris  broke away from the pack early  in the race and without the  benefit of draughting in the  large pack that followed they  held the lead right to the finish  in the Bicycle Association of  B.C. sponsored event.' v:  At the Pream checkpoint in  Sechelt, Fitzmorris sprinted  ahead of Isherwood to win that  section. "It was quite exciting  when they came through  Sechelt," Ray Clayton of Trail  Bay Sports told the Coast News  "Speeds of 65 kmh could be  reached during these top  sprints."  This year's 'RATS' race was  run as a co-operative event with  Don Burgess of Downhill Cycle  in Powell River handling the  start at Earls Cove, Ray  Clayton of Trail Bay Sports  handling Sechelt with the aid of  the RCMP, and Weldon Epp of  The Real Bicycle Shop handling  the finish at Gibsons Winter  Club.  Of the 68 riders officially  entered, including 58 licensed  with BABC, a number of local  riders also entered. Rob Fitch of  Sechelt was first in the junior  men's class, with Ron Clumpus,  Dave Anderson, Dave Brackett  and Mike Elliott among other  local riders entered.  "We were very pleased to  have seven women enter this  year," said Weldon Epp of The  Real Bicycle Shop. They included Barb Lang, who raced in the  women's Tour de France earlier  this year.  The overall winners were Rob  Isherwood, who has at the age  of 18 established an impressive  record of wins, and Mike Fitzmorris, second, who traded  places with Rob throughout the  race.  Then came Chris de Karf,  third, Mike Dalsanto, fourth,  Louis Bemhart, fifth (Louis is  classed as a veteran, being over  35) and Leo Matsent, sixth  (classed as a cadet, being under  16).  The race was incident-free  even though some motorists exhibited myopic driving styles.  Many of the riders and friends  stayed overnight on the Coast.  Amazingly enough, some  rode their bikes from Vancouver to Earls Cove, raced to  Gibsons, then rode home - definitely racing on a budget!  A purse of $1000 was split  amongst the winners, including  $600 in top quality equipment  "donated by Fred Deely Cycles  of Vancouver. Pins donated by  the Village of Sechelt were well  received by the riders who as a  whole enjoyed the race.

Q BCFGRRIGS  5361  4:30 pm  6:30  8:30  10:20  over  its peace stand  Sunshine Coast school  trustees started off the school  season at a meeting last Tuesday  August 25 by receiving several  letters criticizing the board for  adopting a peace education curriculum.  Pam Barnsley wrote that on  the one hand the board wants  peace education but on the  other hand it doesn't want to  subject students to religious  propaganda.  'They can recognize propaganda when it doesn't coincide with their own views, but  they fail to recognize their own  views as political propaganda,'  she wrote.  E. Foster of Sechelt asked  that peace issues not even be  discussed, especially in grades  below 11 or 12. "Their young  minds are easily fooled by  simplesounding solutions  presented in a favourable  light," Foster stated. He also  wrote that younger students do  not possess the proper skills to  Police news  GIBSONS RCMP  Two cougar sightings have  been reported during the past  week. One was near Ocean;  Beach Esplanade on August 27,  and the other on a private pro-:  perty on Highway 101 across!  from Woodcreek Park subdivision on August 23.  Two Gibsons youths have  charges pending concerning thej  theft of a motorcycle last April.;  A 24-hour suspension wasj  handed out to a Roberts Creek i  male at 1:50 am on August 25 at |  Highway 101 and Burton Road, i  Another 24-hour suspension;  was handed out to a Gibsons1  male at 2:45 am on August 28.  Three males and one female,  all minors, were charged with  possession of liquor at Pebbles  Beach on August 25 at 3 pm.  The penalty for each: a $50  voluntary fine. A letter advising  of the incident is sent to the  parents of each minor charged.  Ten thousand illegal lottery  tickets were seized from  members of the Roberts Creek  Legion during a police search of  Roberts Creek Community Hall  on August 27. A search warrant  had been issued and the search  was carried out at 4:45 pm.  SECHELT RCMP  Police are investigating the  theft of a 12-foot aluminum  boat with a 6hp engine, from  Redrooffs Road.  Police attended a break and  enter in progress at the Parthenon Restaurant. Two males  were seen leaving the restaurant  and one male juvenile was  subsequently arrested. Police  are still looking for an adult  male suspect. Charges are being  laid and investigation continues.  This is the second time in three  weeks that police have arrested  and charged suspects with  breaking and entering at the  Parthenon, which has been  broken into several times this  summer.  Police have charged an adult  male with theft after he stole a  wallet from the purse of a  woman who picked him up  hitch-hiking near Sechelt. The  man was arrested in Gibsons.  Hormones  harmful?  The Foreshore Task Force  will be inviting Dr. Edward  Donaldson to speak to them at  the next meeting about the hormone testing being done in  some fish hatcheries on the Sunshine Coast.  The Department of Fisheries  (DFO) had sent an information  package to the task force including a copy of their contract  with the hatcheries who are using the experimental drugs.  However, although it is clearly stated in the contract that the  hormonal solution which the  fish are dipped into will be  disposed of on dry land away  from any groundwater source,  chairman Gordon Wilson told  the meeting that he was told by  an eye witness that the solution  is sometimes dumped into adjoining water systems.  The task force passed a recommendation that letters be  sent to all government agencies  connected with the pilot projects using hormones on fish,  stating that the committee does  not want these programs carried  out in hatcheries located near  fish spawning streams.  comprehend and appreciate the  complexities in such issues.  "This is why they are first  taught basic math and reading  skills, before their cognitive  complexity develops and they  are able to tackle trigonometry  and world histories in later  years."  Greg de Montreve wrote, saying he felt the people pushing  for peace education were going  to try to brainwash the kids. "I  question whether there is  anyone on the Sunshine Coast  with the understanding of  history that could prepare a  balanced course of  instruction," he added.  Other business included a letter from health minister Peter  Dueck granting the board's request for the funding of a part-  time psychiatrist to serve the  Sechelt Peninsula for at least six  months.  "This special concession was  made in consideration of the  highly volatile problems  associated with sexual abuse,"  said Dueck.

After a few years of chaotic  gardening one can find mint spreading in one's lawn giving off  delicious smells when mowed, dill and fennel grown in amidst rows of  vegetables - not much effort is required if you need some volunteers.  However, I do make special efforts to grown some herbs - basil and tarragon. It is sheer delight to wander in one's garden and break off a  leaf. Paradise should smell like fresh basil!  , DS GREEN BEAN SALAD  3 cups cooked green beans  Drain well and toss while still warm in a French dressing.

Coast News, August 31,1987  ���KK-l-i-i-i-l-cU-rt-iM-l-^  W^^MBK1^^^^^^!^  Writers' Festival  by Peter Trower  To preface George Ryga's  reading, I must take a little  sidetrack. Like most people, I  first became aware of George  when his smash hit play, The  Ecstasy of Rita Joe, hit the  boards in Vancouver. A withering study of an Indian girl's  downfall on the heartless real  life stage of the Skidroad, the  play enjoyed great success, sold  over 10,000 copies in book form  and is still performed. I knew  several people connected with  the play, including Ann Mor-  tifee and Frank Lewis, but I  didn't get to meet George  himself at that point.  Over the years, I heard  through fellow writers, Pat  Lane and John Kelly, that  George had read my poems and  wanted to meet me. We spoke  on the phone a few times but, as  things transpired, we didn't actually get together until last  year. The story of the trip to  Summerland that Yvonne, the  Burnsides, Josyf Stanishevskyj  and myself undertook, has been  been recounted before. I won't  go into it again beyond saying  that George and his wife, Norma, treated us royally. It is a  great pleasure to renew our  friendship with them in this  neck of the woods.  There is a large crowd for  George's reading in the big tent.  As he will tell us later, he is extremely nervous as he steps up  to the mike, but it certainly  doesn't show. Initial stagefright  frequently precedes a strong  performance and this axiom  certainly applies in George's  case. He gives one hell of a  reading.  One of the highlights of  George's performance is a long  excerpt from his recently  published novel In The Shadow  Of The Vulture. The segment  deals with the life and times of a  woefully incompetent Mexican*; 7'  bandito. It is, by turns, funny,  bawdy and tragic; a colourful  insightful study of a born loser.  George obviously empathizes  with the character and brings  him vividly to life. (Montague  Royal informs me that he will  be reviewing Ryga's novel in the  near future).  The rest of George's presentation consists of a series of  short vignettes under the general  title, One For The Road. The  material, presently unpublished,  was written as a one-man show  for George's friend, actor/folk  singer Dick.  The pieces, often revolving  around a fictional character  called Chester, are extremely  eclectic, ranging from political  satire to dead cats. Some take  the form of legitimate poems,  full of sparkling imagery. It is a  bravura performance that generates an explosion of enthusiastic clapping. Later,  George and I talk. I urge him to  Blf_/a-i_i��i  MOLLY WHITELAW REID  Watercolour & Oil  Beginners & Advanced  INFO 886-8674  II  get One For The Road into  print. It contains some of his  best work and merits a wide audience.  Back at Greenecourt we settle  in to hear fantasy writer, Eileen  Kernaghan discourse on her  particular discipline. I have met  Eileen and her husband at  previous festivals and, as an old  sci-fi and fantasy fan, am anxious to hear how she got into  this particular genre.  Eileen Kernaghan, an affable  attractive lady with glasses, was  a housewife with three children  when she first began trying to  write commercially. She started  out doing straight science fiction and was greatly encouraged  when she made a sale to Galaxy,  one of the top magazines in the  field.  During an illness, Eileen read  Tolkien's Lord of the Rings and  was blown away. She decided to  give sci-fi a rest and concentrate  on a heroic fantasy novel of this  sort. It proved to be a very wise  decision.  Eileen decided to base her tale  in Bronze Age Britain around  the misty period when Stone-  henge was constructed. The  subsequent book Journey to  Apriloth, violated one of the  ground rules of the genre, in  that it contained no true  magical elements. Nonetheless,  after being rejected by Ballan-  tyne, the leading fantasy house,  it was accepted and published  by Ace Books and went on to  win a silver Porgy Award.  Having found her metier,  Eileen plunged full tilt into the  fantasy novel form. Her second  book Songs From the Drowned  Lands, was a prequel to the  first, set several hundred years  earlier and containing plenty of  supernatural goings-on. It was  equally successful and won the  Canadian Science Fiction and  Fantasy Award for 1983-84.  In 1986, Eileen briefly  deserted her! mystical realm to  co-author the third edition of  The Upper Left Hand Comer:  A Writer's Guide For The Northwest. Then she returned to  fantasy and her third novel  Sarsen Witch, set in Bronze Age  India, will appear from Ace in  1988. She is already working on  a fourth book with the marvellous title: Winter On The  Plain Of Ghosts.  Eileen reads a couple of provocative excerpts from her  novels.  Eileen finishes her stint to  pleased applause and returns to  the display stand she is running  with her husband. They have  recently opened a book store in  Burnaby, called Neville Books.

This man has five planets in  Virgo: Sun, Moon, Mercury,  Mars, and Venus. Those are the  faster moving planets, which  astrologers call 'personal  planets', that indicate the individual characteristics in a person's birth chart.  Some of the classic Virgo  traits are obvious in Rick  Hansen, even to those of us  who don't know him personally. Anyone with a Virgo Sun,  born August 24 to September  23, will exhibit some of these  same characteristics to a greater  or lesser degree.  There is a natural striving for  perfection, a drive to do better.  This is often manifested in service to others, Virgo is the sign  of the servant. They often seem  to need meaningful work in  order to feel right with themselves. Being ruled by Mercury,  unless other .aspects in the chart  overshadow this trait, they will  tend to be quick-minded.  Those are all pretty admirable  traits and, handled properly,  result in some pretty impressive  people. But everything seems to  come down to a balancing act,  and that takes practice and experience. During our lifetimes,  we will all go through stages  where we exhibit both the  positive and negative traits of  our birth signs. That's called  growing. The point is not to get  locked into the negative aspects  by defining ourselves as 'that  type of person.'  One of the most subtle balancing acts that Virgos have to do  is handling the service aspect of  their personalities. It's easy to  slip from being 'one who serves'  into a martyr role - YEUCH!  The key is (as always) in being  aware of your own feelings.  If you find yourself giving to  others because they expect it or  need it, or because you think  you should, I can almost guarantee that you will end up tainting the giving with feelings of  resentment. That does a great  wrong to both yourself and the  receiver.  Sometimes, if you are a person who tends to give, you'll  suddenly feel over-burdened by  the needs of others. When this  happens, it is important that  you put on the brakes. Take  some time out, as much as you  need (even if we're talking  years), and give to yourself.  Right away I know some of  you are thinking, "I can't just  stop giving to my children (or  spouse)." WRONG! How  many grown children end up in  therapy talking about how guilty or lousy they always felt  about their parents' martyrdom? Lots.  How many people end up  resenting and distancing  themselves from their partners  who seem to always feel hard  done by?  However uncomfortable it  may feel, you'll be doing  everyone in your life a favour if  you nurture yourself first. Then  the giving you do can be done  freely with no obligations attached. You can serve others  only as much as feels good to  you.  Any other kind of giving is  only a burden placed on others,  and no one appreciates a burden, or the person who hands it  to them.

It is not a banquet for the  squeamish. At one end of the  room, a cow is being butchered  alive and the diners, seated at  rough wooden tables, are avidly  devouring the raw still-warm  flesh. They are all black men  and women, with one startling  exception. He is a 6'4" white  man with flaming red hair and  he is secretly disgusted by the  revolting spectacle. But he dare  not show his true feelings. He is  a guest among these people and,  for his own safety, he must accept their customs, however  abhorrent.  The incongruous member of  this savage group is a Scotsman  named James Bruce. At moments like this, he wishes he  Were back in his native  Highlands. How he came to be  in this barbaric land is the subject of an offbeat book by  historian J.M. Reid, Traveller  Extraordinary (Eyre & Spot-  tiswoode).  ��� James Bruce, first son of the  Laird of Kinnaird, was born in  1730 and educated largely in  England. He spent several years  travelling around Europe as a  wine-trader. But he yearned to  do something significant - to  make his mark. He also craved  romance and adventure. When,  through influential friends in  London, Bruce received the  chance to undertake the Ethiopian expedition, he immediately  accepted. His main task was to  locate the source of the Blue  Nile. It was the age of exploration and such projects were  heartily encouraged and found  ready funding. The undertaking  had the full approval of George  III.  Ethiopia, like most of Africa  at this period, was a shadowy  land of mystery and legend. It  was also relatively inaccessible.  But somewhere in its mountainous reaches, the source of  the Blue Nile is rumoured to lie.  After numerous confrontations  with treacherous sheiks in  neighbouring Arab countries,  Bruce manages to breach the  borders of Ethiopia in 1769.  He finds a wild rocky fragmented land of warring city  states and repellant customs like  the one already described. Some  of the more primitive tribal warriors drape themselves in the entrails of animals like obscene  jewelry and human life is of  very small consequence.  Fortunately for his continued  good health, Bruce manages to  ally himself with a powerful  chief called Ras Michael and his  beautiful wife, Esther. He  spends five ye^s at Michael's  court. Bruce, although not a  qualified physician, has a good  layman's knowledge of medicine and makes himself useful in  this capacity. He also serves for  a time in Ras Michael's army.  Eventually, he even finds his  way to the source of the Blue  Nile.  After a string of bizarre  adventures and several close  brushes with death, Bruce  returns to London.in 1774.

The newspapers  dub him 'Baron Munchausen'.  Angry   and   disillusioned,  James Bruce retires to his Scottish estate and attends to  business matters. In due course,  he writes and publishes his  memoirs. These too are dismissed as imaginative poppycock,  although the book sells well as a  curiosity. James Bruce dies in  1794, a bitter man.  It was not till many years  after James Bruce's death, that  almost all his stories were  verified and he was granted a  well-earned place among the  great early explorers.  Sunshine Folk Fest  by Ken Dalgleish  Of all the folk-music festivals  I've attended and played for, by  far my favourite is the Powell  River one ... the Sunshine Folk  Festival.  Many local music lovers seem  to agree, because the number of  people from our area who attend the two wonderful days of  music, food and festivities  grows each year.  The festival starts Saturday  September 5 at noon and runs  until Sunday evening. Charge is  $5 per person, $3 students,  children under 12 free.  The line-up this year is most  impressive and includes:  Spirit of the West: a four-  piece Vancouver-based band  who made a name for themselves with their original Celtic  Folk & Roll Sounds. Folk  festivals throughout Canada,  the U.S.A. and even Scotland  have been caught up in the  magic of their sound.  The Martian Embassy JuJu  Orchestra: with an Afro-Pop  sound this band blends guitar,  flute and saxophone with  African percussion instruments  and the kora, a 21-string  African instrument.  Signi Murgatroyd, Michael  Dunn & Ken Dalgleish with  their renditions of tunes ranging  from Patsy Cline to Leon  Russel, with a little original  material thrown in.  John Lyon on guitar and  vocals accompanied by Mary  Bruner, a classical violinist.  They'll treat us to songs from  Duke Ellington to contemporary.  Barb and Sue and the 63  Ramblers, a six-piece band, two  members formerly of Doug and  The Slugs, on hand with dance  music, much of it from the 60's.  Rebel Heart, a five-piece  band with local roots, featuring  original tunes by Jessica Aimes  and lots of foot-tapping contemporary pop.  Bob Carpenter, noted as a  singer/songwriter with his own  special appeal, Bob will be back  to join us after a tour of folk  festivals across Canada.  Jan Reynolds and Arvid  Grants, a flute duo back by  popular demand.  The Crosstown Trio, a  recently formed local band with  lively dance-band sounds.

And though every part of this beauty-blessed Coast has  a claim on our serious aesthetic attention the view from  Gibsons Harbour across to the North Shore Mountains is  in world class for contemplation these sun-drenched days.  And when one tires of the ageless grandeur of the  mountains there is the many varied activities which comprise the life of the busy little harbour.  There it was, one recent afternoon, my companion and I  whiled away some charming time over a light lunch at  Gramma's Pub.  My companion is a long-standing admirer of Gramma's  zucchini strips and wasted no time in ordering them as  soon as we settled ourselves at a table on the outdoor  patio.  "I just love the dip," she said. "It's so wonderfully, ad-  dictively garlicky," she said. "I even like to stick my chips  in it."  To go with the zucchini she ordered a Caesar Salad and  a glass of white wine.  It is rare that she orders before I do, but on this occasion  I did not share her certainties. In the first place, I was  hungry and after contemplating the various burgers on the  menu and wondering if I wanted a basket of Gramma's  generous helping of fish and chips or a steak sandwich or  all of the other sandwiches, not to mention the chicken  strips which I had enjoyed before, I settled on the Shipwreck Burger, which at $6.25 is the top of the menu. It's a  big one and at Gramma's the amount of french fries that  you can expect will delight all who love this time-honoured  delight.  I washed it down with a bottle of imported Mexican  beer, and felt well satisfied.  Gramma's serves breakfasts and finger food and Monday to Thursday, 1:30 to 3:30 pm those on the run can  catch the latest special - one of Dean's Wimpy Burgers for  just 49 cents with the purchase of a beverage worth $2.75.  There is also a Ploughman's Lunch of cold cuts, cheese,  pickles and French bread, daily specials and a variety of  desserts.  And always, whatever your menu choice, there is the  imcomparable view of the mountains and harbour.

The commission, under the  chairmanship of Blane Hage-  dorn, has authorized a number  of major renovations and a  general upgrading of the pool  over the past few weeks; and  pool manager Zeta Gaudet has  an enlarged and exciting  schedule ready for the opening  date.

The involvement of represent  tatives from Areas E and F and  the town of Gibsons on the  Aquatic Commission, and the  welcome co-operation of local  business and industry will help  ensure the successful operation  of the aquatic centre.

He becomes the second golfer to  'hit the big one' at the Pender  , Harbour course.  I hope this week our report  will be complete. You will recall  that last week we were left hang-  . ing in the middle of a sentence  halfway through our club news  so let's try for 18 this time.  The good news is that Sam  Robertson is the winner of the  Pender Harbour Junior Golf  Championship. Saturday and  Sunday, August 22 and 23, saw  the first annual junior club  championship tournament. A  fair number of players competed and some pretty good golf  resulted.  A nine hole qualifying round  was played Saturday, and the 18  hole championship final round  Sunday. Sinclair Bay's Sam  Robertson was the winner, edging out Garden Bay's Josh  Robertson by one stroke.  Todd McGill of Sakinaw  Lake captured third spot. Nine  players competed in the championship flight. They were,  besides the three named: Brian  Lee, Paul McDonald, Tara  O'Coffey, Rick Cotter, Ben  Robertson, and David O'Coffey.  The club treated the players  to lunch and drinks after the  tournament. Everyone had fun  and enjoyed the golf.  The junior program was conducted under the able direction  of Jim Paton, Pete Waycott, Al  Soloman and Dutch Haddon.  The efforts of these gentlemen  are greatly appreciated by the  club and the players.  Our mixed twilight on August  24 was a 'two ball alternate ball'  event. Tom Heed and Elsie Colling were the big winners. Tied  for second were George Grant  Jessie Rietze and John  Willcock-Linda Reid. The  teams of Ross McQuitty-Evelyn  Tapeo and Dutch Haddon-  Sylvia Thur 1 well tied for third.  The 'honest golfers' were Janet  Reid and Lois Haddon.  The   men's   day   stalwarts  played   the   Stableford   point ���  system on August 22. When the  results were tallied, first place  went to Hugh McGurmes with  plus 18, followed by George  Langham, plus 12, Carl Rietze,  plus 10, and Ken Klein, plus 8.  The senior men's event on  August 25 was 'blind partners'.  Twenty-three turned out, including Sunshine Coast Club  members Joe Mellis, Bert Slade,  Frank Tabor and Bill Gibbon.  Two members of the Pitt  Meadows Club, Alf Davies and  Pete Wilson, also joined in on  the fun. Winners for the day  were: first, Eldy Gandy and  Wilf Crowe; second, Murrell  Smith and George Grant; third,  Bill Gibbon; and fourth, Ken  Patterson and Joe Mellis.  Pete Waycott was closest to  the pin. Also on the prize list  were John Smithers, Bruce  Hamilton, Bert Slade and Jim  Buntain.  The ladies day event was an  inch-or-string   contest.    Low  gross winner was Moni  Langham and Jan Watson took  the low net. Following golf,  Lois Haddon gave a short lecture on golf etiquette and ways  to speed up play.  And from the 19th hole . . .  When asked how her golf game  went, the lady replied, "I will  tell you my age and my weight,  but I won't tell you my golf  score!"  Boys & Girls aged 10 to 12 yrs.

"The main objective is to  give Soviet people a better life  under socialism.  "There are more consumer  goods on the market now, but  the quality is not what they  want," Phillips said.

"Will new technology create  unemployment?" he was asked.  Phillips speculated it would  more likely cause people to have  a shorter work day. At present  the average Russian works eight  and a quarter hours a day, five  days a week, he said.  One significant change, he  said, is that efficient factories  will no longer subsidize inefficient ones. Phillips said there is  also   a   trend   developing   of  workers electing their factory  administrators, where before it  was done by the state. But he  said it is too soon to tell if this  will prove to be a better way of  doing things.  Phillips said he saw peaceful  coexistance to be a major concern among the Soviet people.  "The major contradiction in  the world today is socialism versus capitalism," he said, "but  when those bombs start dropping there will be no more  socialism and no more  capitalism.''  mm  WeM on Gower Point Rd.

Because of the  tides we could not make the  passage in one day and, in any  case, we wanted to go into one  of France's locked harbours.  I should explain that on the  English and French coasts there  are many of these. Usually they  may be entered only one or two  hours before and after high  tide, that is twice each twenty-  four hours. In some cases, the  harbour is locked only when it is  necessary to accomodate a  deep-draft ship. If the sailor arrives when the harbour is locked, his only recourse is to lean  against the outer wall and wait  for the locks to reopen.  Since these are harbours in an  area of considerable tidal difference, he will almost certainly  find himself high and dry so the  maneuver must be carefully executed.  There are also many unlocked harbours, known as drying-  out harbours.  We chose a fishing port with  a large yacht basin called St.  Vaast la Hougue. As we approached we were met by the  sight of the walled harbour. To  the east of the harbour entrance  a ruined castle and other fortifications jutted high above the  rocks. Later, when the tide ran  out, we saw that there were  many acres of oyster beds to the  west.  We would have to leave St.  Vaast at three in the morning  because of the locks and we  decided to treat ourselves to  dinner the night before. We had  already realized that our attempts to speak and understand  French were pitiful. I should  have spent some time in  Southampton studying instead  of running around on my little  bicycle. That night was the first  of many when I regretted my  idleness.  We had asked our neighbour  to recommend a restaurant,  some place not too expensive. If  we could have read the menu  properly I guess it wouldn't  have been. That night we found  out that the dinners are arranged by price from cheapest to  dearest and, yes, you guessed it,  we ordered the dearest.  It took us a while to realize  what had happened. The appetizer was mixed shellfish and  when the waitress brought us a  platter the size of a table top,  heaped with crab, oysters,  mussels, prawns, clams, and  escargot, along with a delicious  butter sauce, our suspicions  were aroused. It took us an  hour to get through the appetizer. Bill kept insisting it was  the whole meal but I could at  least read a little French and I  knew he was wrong.  Next came a sherbet, then our  entree, beautifully prepared and  served, followed by salad. Then  when the waitress came with the  dessert menu and told us we  could order anything we wanted  our suspicions were confirmed.  We thanked God we had a visa  card, otherwise we might still be  there trying to explain to the  manager. The meal cost a fortune and it was worth every  cent. The only sad part was  we'd ordered the cheapest wine  on the menu.  Staggering aboard after a  meal that took us about four  hours, we had about three hours  for sleep.  #37  Handyman, carpentry and all  home repairs, reasonable rates,  free estimates. 886-2835.     #37  PEERLESS TREE  SERVICE LTD.

"I'm sure that the provincial  government would be horrified  to find out that their encourage-  ;ment of a genuine business,  " aquaculture, is being misused so  that people can come along and  flog a piece of real estate and  make a profit," Diana Davidson told the meeting of the  Foreshore Task Force last week.  Her comments were made during the discussion of the transfer  ' of aquaculture foreshore leases.  The suggestion had been  made that people had acquired  tenure on foreshore parcels for  the supposed purpose of establishing a fish farm, held onto  the lease without doing any further development, and then sold  the lease to larger companies at  a considerable profit. Under the  terms of agreement with the  Ministry of Lands and Forests,  which handles crown land  leases, a lease hold must exhibit  'diligent use' of the property.  Various committee members  expressed concern that many of  these leases had been issued  before the Gillespie Report  which recommended that there  be a rninimum of three km between fish farms, and were  therefore not subject to that  restriction.  Carol Rubin, from the Sunshine Coast Environmental Protection Project, suggested that  with the transfer of leases, there  should be a concern shown for  the change in environmental  conditions since the original  lease was granted. The only way  to address the issue of water  quality around those leases  granted previous to the Gillespie  Inquiry, she stated, was to insist  that they go through some of  the referral processes with  recommendations made from  concerned agencies before any  transfer is approved.

Halfmoon Bay Happenings  Locals outraged  by Ruth Forrester, 885-2418  The main happening in Halfmoon Bay has been the recent  news that the SCRD has given  permission for a group of RV  campers to camp on Coopers  .Green Day Picnic Park over the  Labour Day weekend.  There  , has been much local outrage  and protest at such a precedent;  which is in contradiction of its  designation as a day park and  which would defy all the 'No  Overnight   Camping'   signs  , posted throughout the park.

Bruce Strachan, Minister  PUBLIC NOTICE  regarding  COMMERCIAL RIVER RAFTING  The Boating Restriction Regulations made  pursuant to the Canada Shipping Act have been  amended and now apply to all rivers in British  Columbia.  These regulations state that no person shall  operate a commercial river raft in British Columbia  unless authorized by a permit issued by the Ministry  of Environment and Parks. Operators and companies  who do not possess a valid 1987 operating permit are  required to secure the necessary permits from this  Ministry by September 30, 1987.  Amended River Rafting Standards relating to  equipment requirements and the certification of  guides and trip leaders are now in effect. Copies of  these standards are being sent to all known operators.  AH commercial river rafting operations in British  Columbia are expected to be in full compliance with  these standards immediately.  For information on how to comply with the legal  requirements of this amended legislation, to acquire  application forms for permits and crew certification,  and for copies of the legislation and standards, please  contact:  Safety Officer  Parks and Outdoor Recreation Division.  Ministry of Environment and Parks  3rd Floor, 4000 Seymour Place  Victoria, British Columbia V8V1X5  387-4662  B  Ministry of Agriculture, pointed  out that it is this government's  policy to encourage business  development and government  agencies must reflect that  policy.  However, Diana Davidson,  speaking for the Tuwanek  Ratepayers Association,  challenged Coons' interpretation of that policy. "I'm a free  enterpriser," she said. "In normal business you have the  money and then you get into  ^business. In this situation the  lease becomes an asset with  which to get money. An impecunious individual can come,  then, with an asset out of the  public purse. In a free enterprise  system, there are no gifts from  the public purse. I don't want to  see legitimate businessmen have  to pay off a speculator in order  to get into business."

Last  week's winner was Virginia McAllister, General Delivery, Half-  Moon Bay, who correctly identified the shed on O'Brien Road.  Storm Bay poses  tough question  by Penny Fuller  Colin Thomson, of the Storm  Bay residents association,  brought a lot of questions to the  Foreshore Task Force meeting  last week, but it's going to take  some time to dig up the  answers.  His questions arose from the  installation of a fish farm by  Aquarius Sea Farms on the  mouth of Storm Bay, July 28  this year.  This location, besides being a  well-used recreation area, is  over a clam bed and eliminates a  prawn and long-line area.  Residents also claim it impedes  navigation and cuts off access  to the adjacent beach.  The questions they brought  to the task force were straightforward, mainly, how did this  operation receive approval and  end up on their foreshore, and  why were none of the residents  involved in the consultation  process?  An added twist was brought  to the discussions when task  force member Ken Wing, an  oyster farmer and commercial  fisherman, told the meeting he  had applied for a lease for a  shellfish farm in an adjacent,  but less sensitive, location,  before Aquarius had applied for  their lease. Wing said he had informed fisheries officer Randy  Tancock about the commerical  shellfish beds at the Aquarius  location, but later it was his application which was turned  down.  When contacted, Mr. Tan-  cock was surprised at the information. He told the Coast News  he understood Mr. Wing to be  referring to the location of his  own application. "There's been  a misunderstanding," he said.  "I had no idea there was a commercial bed there. But unless  you have a map with parcel  numbers on it while you're talking, it's hard to be clear about  which site you're talking  about."  Colin Thomson also brought  a copy of a letter which the  Storm Bay residents association  had written to Hank Boas at the  AQUILA AIRi  *..-...  <:(v��irp    only ^minutes  ��� .i.n- international-Airport  M��  '.    ifl1; y  (torn Sechelt Airport  $20  .��,  -f m i).ations 885-9711  ���    H.i' you' Travel Agent  LTands and Forests Ministry. In  it, they outlined the results of  the negotiations they have been  holding with Norbert Kraft,  president of Aquarius Sea  Farms.  According to this letter, Mr.  Kraft wants only one more fish  farm in the Sechelt Inlet and if  another site can be secured, the  Storm Bay operation would be  moved there. Thomson asked if  Lands and Forests would be  willing to co-operate to arrange  the swap, and Hank Boas indicated that alternatives were  being considered.  However, Carole Rubin of  the Sunshine Coast Environment Protection Project asked  if the alternative site would be  subject to regular referral process, and although Boas never  stated outright that it would  not, he did indicate it might not  be necessary.  Chairman Gordon Wilson  asked that the issue be brought  to the next meeting and asked  Mr. Boas to bring all the  documentation relevant to the  granting of the Aquarius application, in order for the task  force to attempt to understand  why the lease was granted in the  first place, and why residents  were not consulted.  Before leaving the meeting,  Boas commented that the purpose of the task force should be  reviewed. He stated he had not  expected it to be a forum for  everyone who had a complaint  about one of the government  ministries involved.

GIBSONS, 888-3294  Residents prefer  slower life-style  Regional district directors  were outraged last week at a  response from Minister of  Transportation and Highways  Cliff Michael.  His letter commented on the  Sunshine Coast's attempts to be  considerd part of the Circle  Route concept with Vancouver  Island. In it Michael stated:  "The sort of road improvement most likely to proceed on  Route 101 would be the Gibsons  Bypass. When completed, that  would alleviate congestion in  the downtown streets by removing through traffic. Minor improvements to the rural alignment would also be of assistance.  "The character of this road is  based on its scenic appeal and  attractiveness for tourism," the  highways minister continued. "I  am told the main safety concern  is created by traffic racing to  catch the Earls Cove ferry.  "Road improvements which  would encourage higher travel  speeds would, in my view, be  contrary to the character of the  Sunshine Coast as a tourism  and retirement area.  "Consequently, by referring  to the route as a 'minor disaster  for the travelling public', I  believe you may not be reflecting the wishes of many residents who prefer a life-style based on a slower pace of life."  Area A director Gordon  Wilson stated he would be bringing the letter to the attention  of the Association of . Vancouver Island Municipalities the  next day. He also suggested a  copy be sent to Powell River,  which will be affected by the  Minister's attitude.  Further, the board agreed to  send a letter to MLA Harold  Long asking him to inform the  minister about the transportation system problems on the  Sunshine Coast.
