 Legislative Library  Parliament Buildings  Victoria, B.C. V8V 1X4  by Joel Johnstone  You won't see another Sunshine Coast Aquaculture International Conference next year,  so you'd better take in this years  exhibits if your interests are in  fishfarming and ocean products.  "This will be the last of the  annual conferences held on the  Sunshine Coast," says Syd  Heal, president of the Sunshine  Coast Aquaculture Association  (SCAA).  Next year the conference,  which attracts delegates from all  over the world, will be held at  the Vancouver Trade Centre in  hopes it will become the largest  convention of its kind in North  America.  But the conference will return  in 1989.  "It's going to be an alternate  yearly event," Heal says,  because it will allow conven-  tioners to attend another trade  show held in Aquanor, Norway, which runs in the odd  year.  This won't take anything  away from the region though,  Heal says. "It still ineans a lot  of benefits for the Sunshine  Coast because delegates will  want to tour one of the largest  aquaculture areas during  Aquaculture International '88.  At  this  time it's  the  largest  aquaculture area of its kind in  the regional sense.  "The industry as we know it  is changing, with part of that  change being a big brother/little  brother relationship with Vancouver in handling the conference.  "We can't compete with the  likes of the Pan Pacific Hotel  (for facilities), so we're better  off working with them...supporting each other.  "This is very much a world  event, covering all aspects of  aquaculture."  So much so, it has Conference Co-ordinator and  SCAA Managing Secretary  Dora Glover practically living in  the Sechelt Arena preparing for  the rush.  "We have 90 exhibitors and  we're hoping for 400  delegates," she says. "Delegates  are fish farmers, shell and finfish farmers, interested parties  and government officials.  Anybody who's interested in the  aquaculture industry."  Technological, medical, and  feed displays will constitute the  majority of the exhibits which  are varied enough, Glover says,  "just wandering around you'll  be ready to open your own fish  farm. You'll get all the  knowledge."  The Conference hatches  Tuesday,   September   8,   with  delegates registering between 12  noon and six pm. In the evening, a "seafood extravaganza"  dinner buffet co-hosted by the  Honourable John L. Savage,  Minister of British Columbia  Agriculture and Fisheries, will  feature the culinary services and  ice-art sculptures of Bella Beach  Caterers.  Wednesday, the conference  will be officially opened with a  welcoming address from Sechelt  Mayor Bud Koch followed by  the first of several seminars  dealing with the aquaculture industry.  Each seminar, a half-hour to  an hour and a half long, will  consist of a presentation by a  guest speaker later to be discussr  ed by a three-member panel  overseen by a moderator. The  subjects consist of: the  marketing and processing of  finfish and shellfish, environmental concerns, insurance/investment and law,  hatcheries and smolts, shellfish  farming, phytoplankton, and  finfish health and nutrition.  The goal behind the trade  show isn't just the exhange of  knowledge and ideas. It is, in  effect, a gathering place for  both delegates and exhibitors to  forge new alliances and make  sales. This, in part, is the reason  the exhibition will be open to  Please turn to page 8  The Sunshine  Published on the Sunshine Coast        25' per copy on news stands September 7,1987    Volume 41     Issue 36  [dedicated to his people and the sports he loved, late Ted Dixon remains in the hearts of all who knew and  loved him.

The change in procedure involves petitioners having to be listed on the agenda  prior to Thursday noon the  week before the council meeting  in order to be heard. Koch  previously stated he wanted to  allow a forum for opposing  views. He stated in this way  council could hear both sides of  the story at once.  "How would the opposing  speaker be aware?" asked  Alderman Ken Short.  "The agenda is supplied Friday noon," replied Koch,  "People read the agenda."  "Is the agenda being publish  ed in the papers?" persisted  Short.  "Yes!" stated Koch emphatically.  "No!" cried out both Coast  News and Press reporters in  unison, "Not unless you pay for  it."  Mayor Koch tried again to  explain his position. "I don't  understand what's so hard to  understand about it," he said,  "If a party with an opposing  view is in the audience, they can  stand up and speak."  "That's what I think we have  been doing all along," commented Alderman Ann  Langdon.  "There is no audience participation in council meetings  unless they are invited," interjected Short.  After a few more minutes of  similar dialogue Mayor Koch  closed discussion and the council voted in favour of amending  the procedure.  Fatal Injury  An unidentified man perished over the long weekend when  the motorcycle he was riding went out of control, flinging  him to the pavement and sending the bike careening up Rat  Portage Hill where it struck another vehicle travelling  downhill towards it  No one quite sure  Whither Area C?  by Ken Collins  The Sunshine Coast Regional  District (SCRD) appears to be  opposed to restructuring of any  kind if responses from both it  and the Department of Municipal Affairs are any indication.  The recent acquisition of most  of Area C by Sechelt leaves  Director Jack Marsden with few  people to represent. According  to the 1981 census there were  2609 persons in Area C.  Malcolm Shanks, Sechelt Administrator, estimated 2600 persons were absorbed from that  area last year when Sechelt  restructured.  When asked how many people currently lived in Area C,  ths��office of the Regional Board  produced a photocopy of the  1981 census figures showing  that if Sechelt is correct in their  estimate, there are at least nine  persons still residing in Area C.  "We have not heard anything  different from Municipal Affairs," said the Regional Board  office. In their mind, Director  Marsden still represented 2609  persons and has a vote of three  in the weighted voting system of  the Regional District. Both  Sechelt and Gibsons have only  two votes each. In the words of  Sechelt Alderman Ann  Langdon, "We might as well  not attend."  When Gary Paget, Acting  Director of Organizational  Policy in Municipal Affairs was  contacted, he said, "Normally  we would address this right  after the boundary change."  "There is an election coming  up and Area C has lost vast  numbers of people," he was  told.  "I don't think we would step  in and do anything at this  point," Paget replied.  "What if there are only 15  people in the area?" he was asked.  "If they are really  concerned," he said, speaking  of the Regional Board, "they  should write to us."  Larry Jardine, Secretary-  Treasurer of the Regional  District, was then contacted.  The Indian Band and residents  of the Indian Band lands are  Jack Marsden's constituents,"  he said.  "Do the Indians know that?"  he was asked.  "Of course," he replied, "the  Indian Band has been offered  polling boxes and returning officers. They have chosen not to  exercise their franchise."  "What if it turns out he  doesn't represent them," Jardine was asked.  "Then," he said, "you are  left with an area that has a  bunch of ground."  An appointment was then  made with Chief Tom Paul and  the dilemma of Director  Marsden was presented to him.  Chief Paul smiled and said  quietly, "No-one represents the  Sechelt Band except the Chief  and the Councillors."  When Director Marsden was  contacted last Friday evening he  stated that he was just in the  process of figuring out who he  represented and so far he had  come up with approximately  200 people, most of whom were  non-members living on Band  land. "But I don't just represent  Area C," he was quick to point  out, "I represent the entire Sunshine Coast."  Target seniors  Realtors survey Coast's  space requirements  by Joel Johnstone  How much space do you  need?  Well, if you are a senior  citizen or thinking of retirement, there are close to 80 people up and down the Sunshine  Coast who want to know the  answer to this and various other  questions.  Don Siemens, president of  the Sunshine Coast Real Estate  Association, says, "someone  has to do the^research. Someone  has to find out what seniors are  looking for in housing and we  appear to be the logical group."  So, he and the other members  of the association were prompted to sacrifice a little full-page  space in the Sunshine Coast  Realtor this month and fill it  with an ad/questionnaire aimed  at a group of potential buyers,  constituting 25 to 30 per cent of  the market on the coast.  Ken Wells, chairman of the  committee in charge of the  survey, says "there have been a  lot of inquiries directed at  members as to what type of  housing facilities are available  for seniors apart from existing  low income facilities. Actual  housing for seniors has been  neglected and that's what really  spearheaded the market  survey...none of us knew the  answers."  The  first-time-ever research  venture   by   the   association,  Siemens says, is "to cover the  entire spectrum. We want to  find out whether the- requirements are for low income  housing for seniors, individual  housing for seniors, or town-  house-type housing for seniors.  Do they require facilities  beyond just basic housing?"  We're trying to cover a very  broad base. People are asking  us questions and we're trying to  find direction. We also see the  other side where we have people  coming here for a place to live  .and their needs are not being  fulfilled."  Siemens says, hopefully, this  survey will provide both realtors  and developers in the area with  the direction to meet those  needs.  The Sunshine Coast Realtor  contained almost all of the properties listed on the Sunshine  Coast, and is distributed  throughout realty offices in the  area. Responses to the survey  may be mailed or handed in to  any realty office.

Recently at the  Western Canada Games in  Regina she and three other  members of the B.C. team  brought in the first place gold  medal in the three day event  competitions.  "It was a tough  competition," Ellingham said,  "We were neck to neck with the  points all the way so every point  counted. We never knew until  the last rider went who won."  The B.C  horses excelled at  the water jumps. "The other  provinces were absolutely amazed," said an exhuberant Ellingham, "We all just went  tickity-boom through this very  elaborate water obstacle and  they were wiping out, getting  refusals, their horses were absolutely horrified."  Her answer to a girl from  Manitoba who asked if we have  water obstacles here to practice  with was, "Yeah, we have  winter!"  Where is Jeanine Ellingham  off to next? To compete in the  B.C. Championships being held  in Courtenay the weekend of  September 26. Coast News, September 7,1987  ITEM: Teachers forced to photocopy  Remarkable  irony  One of the ironies of the current brouhaha in Sechelt  over the gravel extraction proposal is that Alderman Joyce  Kolibas, ever gracious and ever conscientious, has been  blamed for the fact that Sechelt Council knew nothing of  the matter.  Meanwhile the alderman who has been telling Sechelt  Council for two years that attendance at the EDC was a  waste of time and whose associate played a large part in  engineering the gravel extraction plan sails serenely along  unaffected by the furore.  As recently as last week Alderman Ann Langdon was .  still telling the Sechelt Council in private meeting that at-  , tending EDC meetings was a waste of time despite the fact  that the Community Futures initiative came out of the  commission's efforts and despite the fact that the gravel  extraction was discussed there to the extent that information could be pried out of Oddvin Vedo.  The manager of the Salmon Shark Lottery and Aqua  West was made Chairman of the Ways and Means Com- .  mittee by Mayor Koch.. Does he have a sense of humour  we have not suspected? And now Alderman Langdon  queens it as Deputy Mayor whilst Alderman Kolibas takes  the heat. It is remarkable.  Sympathy, Bob  It is difficult not to feel sympathy with Alderman Bob  Maxwell of Gibsons. He was named Chairman of the  Public Works Committee halfway through the current  year. It is the equivalent of being named captain of the  Titanic after it hit the iceberg.  Without a shadow of doubt, Maxwell is the most competent Public Works Chairman ever to be appointed to the  post in Gibsons but he gets the job after all the available  money has been spent on the sewer plant without fixing the  problem of odour and inherits 10 years of neglect on the  town's roads and pipe system.  Is it only coincidence that Maxwell is, or was, most likely to be Mayor Strom's rival for the mayoralty chair this  fall?  ���,tmm Hie !M#* of tlte CSOpAST HIWS  5 YEARS AGO  A programme to provide work for unemployed skilled  forestry workers who are on UIC was discussed by  Sechelt Council. The council will apply for a grant to  develop 160 acres of District Lot 1472, north of the  arena as a park area.  The proposed Porpoise Bay Crown Foreshore Plan  will now go ahead with the first step in the planning process to be preparation of a work programme outlining  existing issues and problems. A committee, whose  main aim is to protect the environment of the bay, has  already been formed to develop the plan.  Ian Vaughan, Area A director for the Sunshine Coast  Regional District has told the Coast News that he will  reluctantly serve as chairman of the newly formed staff  analysis committee, appointed by board chairman Jim  Gurney.  10 YEARS AGO  Local born Carl Dixon of Sechelt was sworn in as the  50th  native member of the RCMP in Canada at a  ceremony at the Sechelt Band Office last week.  Proprietress of the Dogwood Cafe in Gibsons, Beth  Hawken, spotted young Jane Latham struggling in the  water near the government wharf last week. A moment  later the entire clientele of the cafe had rushed to the  rescue. Jane was pulled from the water by Barry  Lavender.  20 YEARS AGO  Directors of the Sunshine Coast Regional District  turned down a request that Bowen Island be included in  the regional district. The decision was made in a  meeting of the board at regional offices in Davis Bay.  30 YEARS AGO  Fifty-five residents of Roberts Creek responded to a  call by the Improvement Society to attend an emergency meeting at the legion hall to decide what action  could and should be taken regarding the dumping of  garbage, sewage, and rubbish off the Roberts Creek  wharf.  Sky watchers at Roberts Creek saw two planes brush  wingtips resulting in one falling into the water near the  wharf. The dunked pilot, Captain W.F. Waddington flying a B.C. Airlines Cessna 180, was only in the water 10  minutes before he was rescued by the crew of the yacht  Balihai.  40 YEARS AGO  The Coast News, now published in Halfmoon Bay,  has opened a branch office in Gibsons. In charge will be  Gibsons correspondent Les Peterson.  Liberal MP James Sinclair predicts that Prime  Minister MacKenzie King will retire next spring. According to Sinclair the most likely successor is Finance  Minister Douglas Abbot.  The Sunshine  Published by   GLASSFORD PRESS LTD.

SUBSCRIPTION RATES  Canada: 1 year $35; 6 months $20; Foreign; 1 year $40  Two local issues  Let me begin by reminding  the reader that I have been an  active supporter of the regional  Economic Development Commission (EDC) since its inception. I am at present time still  facing a libel suit incurred white  coming to its defence; I appeared before the B.C. Press  Council earlier this year to defend myself against charges of  irresponsible journalism incurred while representing the EDC;  and I served for a time as acting  chairman during the transition  period between the Vedo years  and the Lugsdin period.  With that background laid  out, I now say it is time we  forgot about the EDC. There  have been some solid achievements in the last year: Community Futures is a coup which  will enrich the economy of the  Coast for years to come if properly managed; the achievement  of a Small Business Centre is being greeted with overwhelming  acceptance; and the possibility  of a drying kiln and a forest industrial park are among the  very real achievements of the  commission under the leadership of Maurice Egan and Irene  Lugsdin.  But the departure of Ms  Lugsdin is as good a time as any  to put the initiative behind us,  not as failed but as unlikely to  bear more fruit.  I say this in light of the most  recent letter from the mayors of  the two municipalities which  professes to find fault with the  structure in'favour of a 'corporation' type approach. The  mayors' letter ignores or is  unaware of the fact that Community Futures is a risk capital  type corporation.  I believe the whole thing  should be set aside because we  have in our wisdom elected to  political leadership, two by acclamation, individuals who  detest and distrust each other,  all of them with some justification.  Alderman Norm Peterson  had it right: the problem on the  Coast is largely one of bickering  between 'heads of state'. We are  incapable of working in cooperation; we apparently do not  have the maturity for the excer-  cise.  Let's drop the pretense that  we are trying to do so and let the  politicians go back to playing  with the 'bigness of their littleness' in their own political  playpens.  ' We carry a letter "from Allan  Crean Crane which incredibly  comes all the way from his  sister's home in England to continue his one-man campaign  against the Gibsons Landing  Theatre Project (GLTP). A few  words about this.  First, I resigned from the  board of directors of the GLTP  in June in large part because I  found my job difficult to do if I  was beholden to local elected  officials in any way. Weekly we  have evidence that not all in my  profession feel this way, but  that is how I felt.  That said, let it also be said,  as Alderman Bob Maxwell  pointed out at a recent meeting  of the EDC which was discussing yet another letter from  Allan Crean Crane, the Project  is really nobody's business except that of the Town of Gibsons and the directors of the  Project. It is remarkable how  no one wants to pay taxes in  Gibsons yet everyone wants to  tell the town what to do.  Secondly, when Gordon  Wilson and the Suncoast  Players were trying to build a  theatre in Sechelt no one said  them nay, everyone wished  them well in their efforts. Why  is this courtesy denied the Gibsons Project? A major project is  undertaking enough without the  necessity of defending oneself  from constant sniping attacks.  Thirdly, it is not generally  known that Crane was himself  one of the founding directors of  the Gibsons Landing Theatre  Project. He parted company  with the organization a few  years back under circumstances  which at best can be described  as inglorious for himself.  Given the opportunity briefly  last fall to write editorials for  The Press he began his first with  these words, "Who are these  people of the Eileen Glassford  Arts Foundation?" He had  known and worked closely with  several of the then directors for  almost 20 years.  I am not going to speculate  what Crane's motives are but I  agree again with Bob Maxwell  that this mean-spirited and  pompous campaign can surely  have little to do with economics.  What are his economic credentials to be placed against the  lifelong success story of Rai  Purdy, for example?  We will not again run a letter  from Crane on this subject. We  feel he has had his say. It is  none of his business. It is a matter for the Town of Gibsons and  the Gibsons Landing Theatre  Project.  As a former director, I wish  them well with all my heart as  they try to scale their financial  mountain. It is still one of the  most imaginative and exciting  proposals on the Coast's agenda.  ��4  i  pity this busy monster,  manunkind  pit this busy monster, manunkind,  not.

It is  Count Leo Tolstoy. I first heard  of him from my mother who  regarded him as a very great  man.  Tolstoy was a member of the  hereditary aristocracy of Tzarist  Russia. In his youth he served as  an artillery officer defending  Sevastopol in the Crimean War  and soon recognized the  courage of the poor young peasant soldiers conscripted into  the army. From this experience  he wrote the great book War  and Peace portraying the  stupidity and wastefulness of  war, and later, wrote Anna  Karenina.  Since then I have read them  both and noticed the sympathy  he expressed not only for poor  people but also for animals.  Like many young intellectuals  there, he began to recognize  that their country, still feudal in  nature, was anacronistic compared with the developing nations of the west.  He foresaw that democracy  was the coming order of  government and that every class  of society should take part. To  achieve this all people, including  serfs and peasants must be  taught to read and form opinions. Since there were no proper schools for them in Russia  at that time, and being fluent in  English, he came to England to  study their methods. .  He discovered an abominable  system of educating the poor,  conducted by incompetent people and consisting of facts  chanted in chorus and administered by plenty of  beatings. He did, however,  search out one little germ of  truth: a Practising School in  Chelsea conducted by the  Church, where young student  teachers learned their ' trade  while practising it. As we do it  now.  Returning to Russia, Tolstoy  set up a school in his own house  where he held classes for the  peasant children of his own  estate and lead them in a skillful  way to discuss with him various  topics from their own points of  view, making sure that, not  teaching but learning was taking  place.  He expanded his message to  include village schools and promoted his ideas in a monthly  magazine he published. This  angered the big landowners of  the area who felt he was inciting  discontent among their serfs.  They organized a police raid  upon his house, which was carried out in his absence, ransacking all the rooms, smashing into  his writing desk, scattering his  files and scaring the women.  They were hunting for his printing press which wasn't there.  Tolstoy appealed to the  Minister of Public Instruction  who, with reservations, supported him and the harassment  ended. He continued to conduct  the school in his own home and  his own children coming of age,  swelled the attendance to thirty-  five.  Always a compasssionate  man, Tolstoy took up the cause  of the Doukhobors who, on  June 29,1885, burned on a bonfire the guns they were issued  when the men received their  callup for routine military service in the Tzar's militia. Even  in their exile to arid land in  Georgia, they were beaten and  abused by Cossack horsemen.  Tolstoy helped raise the  money for their emigration to  Canada in 1899. A huge portrait  of him was hung in their  assembly hall at Brilliant (near  Castlegar) where I taught in one  of their community schools. I  liked the Doukhobors and being  a farmer's daughter, I fitted  well into their farming rhythms.  Apparently Tolstoy, who  died in 1910, before the communist revolution in 1917, is  honoured in the USSR. Last  month two ceremonies were  held in Canada, one in Verigin,  Saskatchewan, and one at the  Doukhobor museum near  Castlegar. At each place a  statue of Tolstoy was unveiled  and Ilya Tolstoy, his great-  grandson, spoke. And a  Doukhobor choir sang peace  songs in those voices I knew and  enjoyed so much.  I wonder what Tolstoy, the  perceptive teacher, if alive today, would think of Bill 20. mmmmmtmm   ,;.,,,*������*  Coast News, September 7,1987  p^��u*pptta��u>uin>MuaBataiiM)  Editor:  Last week your paper carried  a letter from the Sechelt Indian  Band Council on the subject of  the proposed Sechelt gravel  mine.  In it they attacked and insulted the three persons who  have dared to criticize the Band  Council's proposal in print. The  council did not, however, defend what they are proposing to  do to the Sechelt waterfront.  In their letter they criticize  Mr. Walter's gravel mine operation; "predatory folk like Mr.  Walters have ravaged and desecrated our aboriginal lands for  the benefits of their own  pockets." But it is okay for the  council to ravage and desecrate  their people's land for the  benefit of their own pockets?  Approximately 1500 acres  (100 Indian-owned) behind  Selma Park will be mined and  the gravel conveyed past St.  Mary's Hospital, through the  Indian Reserve and along a trestle that will extend 720 feet into  Trail Bay. At its outermost end  this trestle will be 130 feet high.  The dust, noise, pollution and  unsightliness will continue 24  hours per day.  In exchange for ruining the  land and waters their ancestors  have bequeathed them, the Indian Band will receive a small  royalty. The bulk of the profits  will of course go to Construction Aggregates, the company  underwriting this project. A  gravel operation requires very  few employees, it could be exaggerating to say that as many as  six Indians will be employed by  this operation.  And while a few jobs might  be gained, a far greater number  from the tourist industry would  be lost, not to mention the people who would choose not to  move into a gravel mining area  and the people who will move  away because of it.  Perhaps instead of creating a  strip-mined wasteland the Band  could consider developing their  Selma Park land into attractive  residential property for lease  and for housing for their own  people. With its lovely southwestern exposure and postcard  view, surely leases could generate more income than gravel  royalties.  Not all the Sechelt Indians  want this gravel operation running through their land and spoiling their waterfront, many have  expressed their unhappiness  with the Band Council's actions  in this matter.  Before it is too late, I urge the  Sechelt Indian Band Council to  reconsider, and all concerned  people to speak out.  The only way to stop this  gravel operation is to tell the  Minister of Forests and Lands  that you do not want him to  give the lease of public land in  Selma Park to Construction  Aggregates.

Their letter just puts in print  what anybody could read between the lines all these past  weeks in the local papers.  It points out that, there are,  among us  all out there,  in  dividuals and groups of people,  who espouse 'free enterprise',  but only when they are the ones  doing it! The old saying, 'do as  I say, not as I do!' fits very well  in this scenario.  I think the Sechelt Indian  Band, in this situation, just invented a better 'mouse trap',  and more power to them!  Again, what a great letter!  R.W. Copping  Sechelt, B.C.  Anger justified  Editor:  Yes, Halfmoon Bay is irate  -and justifiably so.  When the Regional Board acquired Coopers Green for a  park it was decided that it  should be a day-use park, with  no overnight camping allowed.  This was a wise decision  because the Green does not have  adequate facilities for use as a  campsite. The fact that the  whole of the Green is at tidal  level offers serious problems of  sewage disposal and any undue  strain on the septic system  would, in the course of time,  result in the contamination of  the nearby beaches.  The Regional Board acted  most irresponsibly when it  broke its own rules and granted  permission for 18 recreation  vehicles to camp on the Green  over the Labour Day weekend.  We should be grateful that  the Area B Ratepayer's Association acted in a more responsible  manner and protested the decision. We surely need this  organization so let's get behind  them and give them our support.  Mary Tinkley Shannon  More from Crane  Editor:  I was interested to read  Madeira Park resident Jim  Tyner's letter (Coast News,  August 10) supporting the idea  of locating a theatre in Gibsons.  As I have said from the outset,  if independent surveys show this  is the opinion of the majority of  Sunshine Coast residents, I will  throw my whole-hearted support behind the idea.  The wishes of residents as a  whole as to whether or not a  theatre should be built at all and  if so where and under what cir  cumstances could be the only  valid reasons for planning to  build one. The proximity to  Vancouver of any part of the  Sunshine Coast is dependent on  the ferry service.

I notice he included such  titles as Reagan, God and the  Bomb and Turning the Tide:  Militant   Evangelists   on   the  Road to Nuclear War - books  which document and at times  sensationalize    the    well-  publicized unholy alliance between certain brands of Christian   fundamentalism   and  political militarism. May I be  allowed to suggest some alternative   reading   for   a   more  balanced perspective rooted in  the authority of Scripture and  Christian principles of justice,  mercy and peace?  Perspectives on Peacemaking: Biblical Options in the  Nuclear Age edited by John A.  Bernbaum (1984).  Contains the addresses given  by 16 respected evangelical  leaders at a 1983 conference on  'The Church and Peacemaking  in the Nuclear Age.' Perspectives vary from a modified  'peace with strength' position to  Senator Mark Hatfield's strongly worded protest against what  he calls the sinful irresponsibility of the arms race.  Who are the Peacemakers?  The Christian Case for Nuclear  Deterrence by Jerram Barrs  (1983).  Perhaps the sanest and most  carefully-reasoned argument in  favour of the position that  pacifism is Utopian and leads to  oppression and injustice. Barrs  offers a defense of military  strength as the best deterrent to  war in the light of biblical views  of justice, mercy and the  restraint of human depravity.  Christ and Violence by Ron  Sider (1979).  From an opposing perspective, Sider offers a comprehensive discussion of the effects of  nuclear war, Christian positions  on war and non-violence, and  ways to work for peace through  non-military means of national  defense.  The Call to Conversion:  Recovering the Gospel for  These Times by Jim Wallis  (1981).  In analyzing the meaning of  Christian conversion, Wallis  discusses the threat of nuclear  war and the Christian calling to  be peacemakers.  Involvement: Being a  Responsible Christian in a Non-  Christian World, Volume 1, by  John Stott (1985).  Contains a chapter on 'The  Nuclear Threat', arguing for  relative (or nuclear) pacifism,  since by large-scale destruction  of human life, nuclear war  would violate the principles of  the 'just war' theory.  War: Four Christian Views  edited by Robert G. Clouse  (1981).  Four well-known Christian  writers present their different  views on the subject of war and  offer criticisms of the other  three. The four views are: non-  resistance, Christian pacifism,  the Just War and the crusade or  preventitive war.  There are other works which  might be mentioned, all concerned to work out biblical principals of peace and justice.  Although differing in the application of these principles to  concrete strategies of  peacemaking in our fallen and  imperfect world, all would  agree that the only ultimately  real hope for peace lies in personal and national transformation of character, based on the  reconciling and atoning work of  Christ as Prince of Peace.  I hope the local peace movement would be open to considering these perspectives.  J. Cameron Fraser  Paster, Grace Reformed  Presbyterian Church  Sechelt  B.Sc. Hon.

Dr. Sam Simpson is pleased to announce  the opening of an office in Gibsons. He  will be available for appointments each  Thurs., 12 noon to 6 pm  Editor:  When I hear people complain  about unpure water, the price of  food, and our standard of living  in this country, I think of how  easily we Canadians take for  granted the great resources we  do have.  Canada possesses one quarter  of the world's fresh water supply, produces far more grain  among other food stuffs, than  we can consume, yet has the  lowest population per area in  the world.  Along with inheriting one of  the highest standards of living in  the world, we also have the opportunity to participate in the  decision making process of how  our resources are managed.  Meanwhile millions of people  continue to die of preventable  disease or starvation as a result  of crop failures, misguided  agricultural policies and  political unrest.  In sub-Saharan Africa, it is  estimated that almost every  child will have suffered severe  malnutrition by the age of five  which often leads to mental  retardation for a lifetime. What  may be called poverty in  Canada can be looked upon as  wealth to a majority of the  world's population. The only  malnutrition in this country is  probably caused by too much  pop and candy, not lack of  nutritious food.  Save the Children Fund of  BC actively participates in a  variety of projects in seventeen  countries where need is found to  be greatest. Wherever possible,  aid and instruction are provided  so local people can gain the  skills required to maintain self-  sufficiency.  In England volunteers raised  money by what they called a  pound exchange. They lost  pounds and donated pounds to  Save the Children Fund.  Now on the Sunshine Coast  you have the opportunity to  join, the September 'Health-a-  thon'. Simply choose your  favourite diet and exercise  regime and pick up a pledge  card at the Coast News, Webber  Photo, the Landing General  Store, Landing Hair Design,��or  the Knit Wit at the mall.

Employment discrimination  t&  Editor:  If one is female and a single  parent, one may anticipate rejection by male employers or  male course registrars - recent  experience indicates it is the  norm for the Sunshine Coast.  When one aquaculture applicant is advised that she has passed entrance examinations but is  turned down because it was not  felt that she could handle the  practicum (she has high  scholastic standards) due to her  home responsibilities; and  another was turned down from  a job application for the same  reason, and both women have  taken courses and held responsible positions while their children  were well taken care of, we must  call it discrimination.  Who has not heard the saying, 'If you want a job well  done, ask a busy woman...'?

Strangely enough, this huge  multi-national gravel mining  conglomerate has its eye on  1500 acres of property in the  heart of Sechelt. The company  wants this 1500 acres for its  gravel operation.  So, it seems that the SCRD is  willing to trade the heart of  Sechelt for a dump site near  Port Mellon.  Some trade! What a deal for  Sechelt! What do you think  Mayor Bud Koch?

Sue Shepherd and  Ann Bakewell cannot do it by  themselves: that would mean  only five Brownies would be  able to join.  That would be a real shame  because the girls enjoy it so  much and the leaders have fun  too. The leaders don't have to  know anything about the  Guiding movement, they just  have to enjoy working with girls  aged six to nine, or nine to 12.  And they don't have to be the  mothers of the girls in the  group.  The groups meet once a week  for about two hours. The  meeting times are negotiable.  But registration is September 16  and they need a few people to  commit themselves, two for the  Brownies and one for the  Guides.  Please   don't   let   the   kids  down. Phone Sue Shepherd at  885-2972 if you can help.  HOSPITAL MEETING  The first meeting of the.

Zone Commander Pat Schindel will be  there that evening so all  members are requested to attend. The meeting will start as  soon after 7:30 as possible.  ASSOCIATION MEETING  Next   week's   Community  Association meeting is bound to  be a lively one. On the agenda  are the ballfields at Cliff Gilker  Park, the golf club's proposed  expansion, and the decision  whether to sell part of the property behind the post office.  A vote on the sale or possible  trade of association assets must  have the participation of most  of the voting members (those  who have been members for a  year).  Please attend the meeting  next Wednesday, September 16  at 8 pm at the Community Hall.  WEEKEND MUSIC  Slim and the Pickups will be  at the Roberts Creek Legion this  weekend, September 11 and 12.  Members   and   guests   are  welcome.  GUIDES SAVE DOG  A group of visiting Girl  Guides took pity on one of the  many dogs wandering the roads  of Roberts Creek and saved it  from.an afternoon of boredom  and loneliness.  The big black pooch seemed  friendly so they let it follow  them back to Camp Olave so  the caretaker's wife could take it  back home to its owner.  The dog found its own way  back when it spotted the broom  wielded by the lady on the bicycle.  Three month old Dan Evans' eyes were filled September 1 when the  Roberts Creek Community Library opened its new wing.  ���Joel Johnstone photo  Davis Bay News ��* Views  Note meeting date  by Jean Robinson, 885-2954  OOPS!

The children are  returning to school. Summer,  our wonderful summer, will  soon be over.  Egmont's scholars have to  travel to Madeira Park again  this year. There aren't enough  children to justify re-opening  the school. Maybe next year.  There are a number of little  ones coming along.  One good thing about the end  of summer is that it brings the  return of our fishing families.  It's a pleasure to welcome thenv  home.  Doris reports that the Thrift  Store is now open, on Wedne&  days only. The Lioness' Bingo is  almost certainly over for the  winter.  There was some talk of the  possibility of having it once per  month, but the license is expired  and it sounds as if it won't be  renewed. I've never been a  bingo devotee but it was kind of  fun going out a couple of evenings a month and meeting my  neighbours.  The proceeds from the evenings went to help the Transition  House, the women's shelter in  Sechelt.  We've had a skunk pass by  our little cabin, a raccoon eating  freshwater clams at the  lakeshore, cougars calling to  each other early in the morning,  and a bear in the blackberry  patch just down the road.  The jays are scolding from  the cedars and the squirrels are  quarreling over the seeds.  The sun is hot in the afternoons and the lake is 'smoking'  each morning. Summer may be  almost over, but it looks as if  we'll be snaring a glorious  autumn with them all.

Coast News, September 7,1987  si  Valerie Kettle displays the charm and grace which helped her win a Miss North America (Canada) title as  she signs autographs for admirers in the Omega Restaurant in Gibsons last week. ���Ken Collins photo  George    in    Gibsons  Last Tuesday saw the Town  of Gibsons proudly wining and  dining a Miss North America  (Canada) contest winner Valerie  Kettle. Miss Kettle, accompanied by her mother Rose,  relaxed into the warm comfort  of the Omega Restaurant for a  health feast of lasagne and  nostalgic memories of when she  was a little girl in Gibsons.  "She knew from the time she  was six years old that she  wanted to be a-dancer," her  mother said; At six and a half  she started lessons and then  reached a point when the commuting to Vancouver got to be  too much so they moved. "She  gave up a lot of birthday parties  and other things," said Rose  Kettle.  But she must have had some  fun. They laughed about  Valerie stealing apples and outdoing her brothers. "I could  climb trees better than any of  them," Valerie boasted.  And then there were the performances. Mom told of the  endless making of costumes,  gluing of sequins and dying of  shoes. And how Dad would  always send a single red rose  backstage with the note 'break a  leg'.  Modelling agencies from  across Canada and the USA  were recently invited to hold in-  house competitions to select a  7.  contestant to travel to Vancouver to compete in a Miss  North America pageant. One of  the persons chosen was Valerie  who then competed against 12  other women for Miss North  America (Canada). She won  and is now off to the Orient t<j  compete in yet another contest*  r���"  MORTGAGE UPDATE  =f|  Sept. 4  6 mo.  1 yr.  2yr.  3yr.  4 yr.  5yr.  1st  10.00  10.25  10.75  11.00  11.25  11.50  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 (Rat.) 885-2385 Vancouver Toll Free: 684-8016  Anderson Realty Ltd., Sechelt  'Yet still we hear his melody'  by George Cooper, 886-8520  A bench beside the pathway  along Hopkins Landing water-(  front stands, a memorial to the!  man who first placed a like  bench there for the passerby to  rest on. 7  Carved on the bench by his  son Jim is the inscription 'Eric  Thomson, 1889-1978. The piper  plays no more yet still we hear  his melody.'  Eric Thomson, known by  hundreds of folk in Gibsons and  the adjacent communities as the  man to turn to for legal work  retired to Hopkins Landing  with his wife Mary in 1950.  They had been summer  residents there since 1928.  Although he had closed his  law office in Vancouver that  year, he continued as a practising lawyer here until a few years  before his death. At that time he  was the oldest practising lawyer  in the province.  He did say once, "On my  first walk into Gibsons in 1951,  I found people along the way  had already heard of my arrival  and were on the look-out fori  legal advice. I picked up $35 in1  business that day."  ERIC THOMSON  Eric Thomson was born in  Calgary. His father, a Hudson's  Bay man, moved his family to  Victoria before 1900. Eric was  sent to Edinburgh for what  nowadays is called secondary  school, and for his university  degree in arts.  Studying law at Osgoode Hall  in Toronto was followed by his  articling with a law firm in  Vancouver. Then World War I  intervened.  Overseas in 1917 Eric married  Mary Veitch, his fiancee of  seven years before he was sent  to France. In France he served  as a private, a wagon team  driver in the supply line. "I  carefully avoided any nomination for commissioned rank,"  he has said.  From 1921 to 1950 Eric  travelled daily from home in  North Vancouver to his office  on Pender Street in Vancouver,  always by streetcar and ferry. In  all his life Eric Thomson found  no need to own an automobile.  Eric and Mary Thomson raised three children. There's Inga  Fenwick of Port Mellon, Jim of  West Vancouver, and William  of North Vancouver.  To get to Gibsons from  Hopkins Eric could choose to  walk or row his boat that 'ran  like a salmon' or walk the trail.  His boat, a double ender,  smooth strip-planked, was built  by his son William, a copy of  one owned by Roy Malyea.  Rowing was much better  because there was no one to  waylay him for business, and he  could whistle his pipe tunes to  keep in practise.  Piping was a morning ritual  with Eric for 30 years, at least  with the chanter only for the  sake of his neighbours. Up at  six, a cup of tea, and out to play  the beloved tunes.  He had medals for rifle  shooting. He played rugby until  he was nearly 40, and he rowed  his boat until he didn't have the  strength to put it in the water.  But we remember a kindly  man, a man with a sharp sense  of humour, and a readiness to  listen and to help without concern for fee.

Glover says this year the  event should run more smoothly  than the previous. "Last year  we were not that organized and  ran into a few problems, so this  year we addressed it, obtained  some security, and now we feel  we can do it and not have many  problems."  The problems arise mostly  over the environmental issues  surrounding aquaculture.  "As we try to explain to people, the fish farmer is just as  concerned as the general public  over environmental concerns  because if the environment is  damaged then it's going to affect the fish. To have healthy  fish you have to have a healthy  environment."  Heal agrees, saying "disease  is an aspect of fishfarming.  When a fish gets a disease at sea  no-one knows about it. But  when one dies at a farm it  causes a lot of concern because  the whole farm could be affected. In every sense of the  word, it is a farm crop."  He says it all comes down to  the animal husbandry of raising  a healthy, edible'product and  that begins with good farm  management, particularly in the  choice of the sites for  establishing the farm.  If the site chosen by the  farmer is a bad site then no-one  benefits from it and this just  adds to "a lot of misconceptions in the minds of the public  about the environmental effects  of fishfarming. The disease is  already there because there are  lots of diseased fish in the sea."  The farm needs deep water,  says Heal, to disperse the feces  sedimentation (droppings)  deposited by the species being  farmed. While calm water in  cozy inlets may make for a  scenic setting to choose as a  farm site, it isn't very practical  healthwise for the fish or the environment.  "The growth is happening  now," Heal says. "Eventually,  it'll be a coastwide industry"  possibly exceeding some secondary industries in B.C., with the/  main thrust towards deep water  sites like those north of Court-  nay and Campbell River .Powell  River to Prince Rupert, and on  this side of the coast "we're  already the largest in manufac  turing and processing fanned  fish."  The growth which is taking  place is one reason the provincial government is beginning to  play a more active role in the industry as well. Their presence at  the convention undertakes most  of the environmental aspects of  the seminars.  is proud to be a supplier to the Aquaculture Industry, and warmly welcomes all those attending  this year's conference and trade show.  Francis Peninsula Place  Pender Harbour  Open Sundays 10-4  883-9551  Halfmoon Bay Happenings  Pompous rampage  by Ruth Forrester, 885-2418  Reference must be made in  this column of the scurrilous  remarks aimed at a group of  Halfmoon Bay citizens. They  felt strongly enough on an issue  to go to a Sunshine Coast  Regional District meeting with a  protest.  If you have read the editorial  page in the other local  newspaper you will see the need  to tell it as it really happened.  The group comprised mostly  senior, family type long-term  residents. They came to support  their spokesman on the matter  of campers having been granted  permission to camp on Coopers  Green over the Labour Day  weekend.  There was nothing ugly about  the presentation. The so-called  ugliness emerged when Director  Wilson responded to a warning  of word having been received of  possible protests or demonstrations.  Mr. Wilson's pompous rampage on responsible government  and civil disobedience brought  gasps of disbelief from this  group. Some of them were twice  his age and had striven for  responsible government all their  lives.  The reason for their presence  was to demand responsible  government from a Board,  who, in this instance, admitted  their mistake. It was stated  several times by Board members  that it had been published in the  papers that such permission had  been granted. Not so!

Those of us  who read it did not protest  because we were certain that the  Board who had set.the no camping rules would not contradict  this policy, no matter who the  applicant.  We were perhaps naive in  believing in responsible local  government. Those of us who  fought for years to obtain  Coopers Green as a day picnic  park treasure and care for it.  We are happy to share it with  the many groups who come  from near and far to enjoy it.  Is it anarchy to strive to  preserve this?  Many have friends in the RV  group who. have become the victims of this unfortunate controversy through no fault of  their own. They know that they,  as individuals are not resented  by the good people of Halfmoon Bay.  They were wise to understand  and make other arrangements.  Good on them!

Louis and Pauline Benner,  Joe's parents, came here in 1954  followed by Joe and Arvella  from Maple Ridge. Joe's  business was Benner's Furniture  and Arvella worked in the post  office for many years.  A very active community  member Joe was charter president of the Kinsmen, charter  president of the Lions Club and  involved in the forming of the  Pender Harbour, Gibsons and  Roberts Creek Lions. He was  past president of the Sechelt  Chamber of Commerce, the  originator of Timber Days, and  sponsor of the first Timber Boy.  Joe was active in the Catholic  Church groups and served as  local president of both Federal  and Provincial Liberal Parties,  himself running as a candidate  for the leadership of the local  riding.  Joe and Arvella are looking  forward to Summerland where  it will be a five minute walk and  they could be in an orchard and  five minutes another way either  uptown or downtown.  Joe, of course, will not be  idle. He plans on working with  the tourist groups in Summerland.  Best of luck, and with  relatives still in the area there is  a guarantee the Benners will be  back to visit.

Short  Pis  * This came about after an inquiry to Social Services and  Housing (SS&H) in November,  1986, by the DB/WCCA, asking how they could best give up  sponsorship of the Family  Center.  The DB/WCCA felt that the  purpose of a Community Association could best be fulfilled  if the extra work involved in  sponsoring the Family Center  were dropped, especially as so  few choose to be involved.  The government responded  on February 9, 1987, stating at  that time their intention to close  the Family Center. Further requests for extension of sponsorship by Mike Stockdale, of  SS&H, until June 30 and again  until August 31, 1987 were  agreed to.  The question remained as to  who actually owned the house,  contents and outbuilding. The  house had been built by volunteer labour using a government  grant in 1975/76. A letter  received by the DB/WCCA on  Friday, August 28, from Mike  Stockdale, states the house,  contents and outbuilding does,  in fact, belong in its entirety, to  the DB/WCCA.  What happens with the house  now will be up to the  DB/WCCA membership.  WOOD  FURNACES  The Furnace  that thinks!

Recovery was quick and the vessel was  floating and running within a few days. ��� Xen Collins photo  Letters to the Editor   J  Minister's ferry views  Editor's Note: A copy of the  following letter was received for  publication.  Mr. J. P. Kiene  R.R. #1, Davis Bay Road  Sechelt, B.C.  Dear Mr. Kiene:  Thank you for your letter of  May 6, 1987 and my apologies  for the delay in replying to your  questions.  With regard to (the government's) costs for an automobile  to cross the Kootenay and Arrow Lakes, I can advise you as  follows: Kootenay Lake -$10.39  per auto per trip; Upper Arrow  Lake - $11.73 per auto per trip.  In 1972 Premier W.A.C.  Bennett removed all tolls on  bridges, tunnels and fresh water  ferries. His stated purpose was  to assist and ensure the  economic and population  growth of our province.  The interior ferries of the  province are an extension of the  present highway system. Unlike  the Sechelt Peninsula,' many of  the communities connected by  these ferries do not have access  to   hospitals   and   emergency  care. The ferries make that important fast and more direct  link to essential services.  Thank you for your interest.  Yours truly,  Cliff Michael  Minister of Transportation  Correspondent unsatisfied  Editor's Note: A copy of the  following letter was received for  publication.  The Honorable Cliff Michael  Minister of Transportation  Parliament Buildings  C Victoria, B.C.  % Dear Sir:  *    Thank you for answering my  ^letter of May 6, 1987. Your  apologies for the late reply accepted, as you must have been  - very busy the last few weeks  with all your problems on the  v Coquihalla.  Thanks also for the information re the cost to the taxpayer  of the interior lake ferries  ($10.39 - $11.73) for each car-  crossing.  We   all   remember   that  W.A.C. Bennett eliminated all  tolls on what you call the 'fresh  water' ferries in 1972. You  would be well advised to look  back to those years. He  (W.A.C. Bennett) gave us a  ferry service that consisted of  hourly sailings from 5:30 am  until after midnight. Despite the  fact that we pay (and may I remind you that we never complained about that) 76 per cent  of the cost, our schedule was  severely cut back while the toll  free 'fresh water' ferries still  have a twenty hour or better service, each day, year round.  As the reason for this, you  write, and I quote, "Unlike the  Sechelt Peninsula, many communities connected by these fer-  NEEDED A  886-2488  FOR THE  SELF-HELP GROUP  Proceeds aid Food Bank  THRIFTY'S  Tues-Sat 10-4 above Ken's Lucky Dollar  ./���  riles do not have access to  hospitals and emergency care."  Can you tell us, which communities depend on the Albion  ferry for access to a hospital or  doctor? Are there any hospitals  on Hornby, Denman, Lasqueti,  Texada, Gambier or Gabriola  Islands? '....ia.s.  Unfortunately for you, it is  not possible to justify political  decision with rational, especially  economic, reasoning. As V.  Palmer in the Vancouver Sun  (August 17, 1987) put it, "The  broad area served by its (Coquihalla highway) three phases  includes about a dozen seats in  the provincial legislature. The  Socreds won every one of them  in the last election, which begs  the question: Why are we on the  Sunshine Coast, so masochistic  as to elect a Socred?  Perhaps we should take note  of the recent court decision re  welfare rate discrimination on  the basis of age. Discrimination  on the basis of salinity of water?  Joe P. Kiene  P.S.

Equipment    886-7686  Editor:  On August 10, 1987, you  printed an article entitled  "Volunteers Still Needed". The  first part of the article announced that the Sunshine Coast  Home Support Society  (SCHSS) will be launching a  respite service and is recruiting  respite workers. The second  part of the article referred to the  need for volunteer drivers by  the Sunshine Coast Community  Services Society (SCCSS).  First, respite workers are not  volunteers, they will be paid an  hourly wage. Second, it is important to note that the SCHSS  and the SCCSS are two separate  and different societies, albeit  very supportive of each other.  Persons wishing to be respite  workers, or to learn more about  the program are invited to  phone the SCHSS at 885-5144.  Thank you for informing  your readers of these two corrections.

John Shaske  Director, Area F  Colours  Editor:  At the risk of sounding like a  real old-timer, which I'm not  (43 isn't old, is it?), I'd like to  see the Provincial Parks people  get the colours right on their  mural showing Union Steamship's beloved Lady Cecilia,  across from the Roberts Creek  Campground.  Union's funnel colours were  red with a black stripe at the  top, not buff, as the campground tableau shows it.  Buff and black were the funnel colours on the Canadian  Pacific Princess ships, nice  steamers, but they never served  this area, going instead to  Nanaimo, Victoria and Seattle.  It was Union's smaller, cosier  steamships that served Howe  Sound and Sechelt Peninsula  faithfully for many, many  decades, so let's at least get their  colours right: red and black! -  Stephen M.

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 this 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  JBufnsides, Joseyf Stanishevskyj  and myself undertook, has  been recounted before. I won't  go into it again beyond saying  Jhat George and his wife, Nor-  maK 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  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 inorms 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 for an actor/folk  singer friend of George's. 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 bra  vura performance that generates an explosion of enthusiastic  clapping. Later, George and I  talk. I urge him to get One For  The Road into print. It contains  some of his best work and  merits a wide audience.  To be continued...  Come Sail With Us  Boys & Girls aged 10 to 12 yrs.

Burrell   has   responded   to  what  he  calls the  'spirit of: 7  Berlin', an 'eroticism and ear^;7  thiness' he's found there.

E��>  by Montague Royal  William Least Heat Moon is  not the sort of name you run into every day. It is the Indian  name of William Trogdon, a  Missouri'born Sioux of mixed  blood. His book Blue Highways  (Fawcett/Crest), is not the sort  of book you run into every day  either. It is a one-of-a-kind tour  de force - a fascinating journey  through some forgotten pockets  of America, that Jack Kerouac  never dreamed existed.  In the late 1970's, Moon is  teaching English at a small college in Columbus, Missouri. He  has a wife, a small house and a  reasonably-structured existence.  One day, it all falls apart on  him. First he loses his job at the  college, due to low enrollment.  Then his wife leaves him.  Another man might hit the bottle under such circumstances.  Moon chooses a different route  - a literal one. He hits the road.  Stocking the small Ford van he  has christened 'Ghost Dancing',  with a few essential supplies,  Moon sets out alone to explore  the United States.  Moon's plan is to describe a  sort of ragged parabola around  the country, sticking primarily  to the perimeters. Many people  have travelled this general route  before but they usually followed  the main roads. Moon's intent  is to seek put the secondary or  'blue' highways (the colour by  which they are designated on  old maps). It proves to be an inspired decision.  Roughly, Moon's route takes  him first to the East Coast; then  Southwest to New Mexico. He  angles up from here to  Washington, swings East again  across the Northern States to  the Atlantic Seaboard, turns  South to New Jersey, then West  once more and home. Not a  particularly remarkable feat on  the face of it. What renders it  remarkable is the stops Moon  makes along the way and the  people he meets there.  One of Moon's chief assets is  his easygoing gregariousness.  He has the ability to strike up  conversations with complete  strangers and get them to put  any natural reticence on hold.  They tell him some amazing  things and much of the book's  charm lies in these off-the-cuff  dialogues.  But the book is no mere grab-  bag of oral history for Moon is  also a very good writer  -humourous, astute, perceptive  -with an eclectic mind, full of  arcane knowlege. His prose  sings along like the wheels of his  hard-working van, bright with  insights and unexpected facts,  weaving a work-spell that ties  the whole structure together.  Sechelt Seniors  It is difficult to precis a book  that touches so many bases and  impinges on the minds of so  many people. Moon trundles so  far off the beaten track at times,  you wonder if he is ever going to  get back on course. He makes  brief landfall in such  wonderfully-named places as:  Nameless, Tennessee; Dime  Box, Texas and Liberty Bond,  Washington - mere micro-dots  on the map but each yielding at  least one memorable character.  Here is Moon's reaction to an  obscure corner of Nevada:  "Rain fell as I moved toward  the valley, but on a ridge road  between deep volcanic canyons,  the showers stopped and a rainbow arched the highway canyon  to canyon. The slopes were  strewn with shattered 'thunder  eggs' ejected from Lassen, a  volcano last violently active only 60 years before. I took a road  not marked on my map toward  Manton. Nowhere was the way  straight but the land it traversed  looked like the illustration  from a children's book - a  whimsy of rocky shapes, a fancy of spongy bushes, a figment  of trees. Two loping deer could  have been unicorns, and the  . fisherman under a bridge, a  troll. The only reality was that  someone owned the land. At  three hundred yard intervals,  alternating signs hung from  barbed wire: No Trespassing.  Private Property."  But mere excerpts fail to con  vey the unaccountable feelings  that Blue Highways, in its en-  tirity, manages to evoke. It is a  great deal more than the sum of  its parts.

We will be CLOSED for holidays  from Sept. 13 to Oct, 15  Catch us this week for dinner  (f!  ,r��e*e  >d F����Und Frietld% At^oSp,,~'  ���s  This Week's Special  Hydro Information  ��� ��� ��� ���  by Larry Grafton  Primarily for the information  of our branch members, I have  personally been mailed two  news releases, from the Ministry  of Energy, Mines and Petroleum Resources, in reply to a recent letter by myself to the  Ministry through the Association of Vancouver Island  Municipalities.  The initial release dated May  22, 1987 indicates approval of  the program by the B.C.  Utilities Commission, although  Hydro wiU be applying to the  Commission early this month  for implementation on  November 1, 1987.  In order to qualify a  customer will be required to  have a separate meter for the interruptible electricity used in  water and space heating, with  the stipulation that your old  home heating system must be  maintained in working condition, in case power is interrupted.  B.C. Hydro is offering 8.5  percent financing over a four  year period to install equipment  for this conversion, up to $2500  for residential customers with a  commitment from Hydro that  they will maintain the cheap  rate until 1991, to enable  customers to pay for conversions with their savings.  The original news release  disallowed wood, natural gas,  piped-in propane or firm electricity as back-up energy  sources, but a subsequent news  release by the same Ministry on  July 10, 1987, however, allows  'certain types' of wood-fuelled  back-up systems.  For further details they suggest   that   you   contact   your  district Hydro office.  FANTASY  This little anonymous poem  left me chuckling. It was  published in the recent copy of  the Seniors Review and titled:  Membership Dues  I fell asleep the other night  And while I had my snooze  I dreamed each member stepped  right up  And promptly paid his dues.  But when I found 'twas just  a dream  I nearly threw a fit,  It's up to you to make it true  Suggestion....Please remit.  SPAGHETTI DINNER  A spaghetti dinner has been  scheduled in our hall on the  evening of September 19, with a  limit of 120 tickets to be sold.  Unfortunately for this event we  are faced with very short notice,  so please spread the word.  Bring your friends, relatives  and sweethearts for a famous  Seniors' Spaghetti feed at $5 per  person. You will not be hungry  when you leave, judging by past  similar gatherings.  EXECUTIVE MEETING  A very good turnout in our  hall on September 1 had plenty  to discuss. A great deal of time  was spent on preparation for  the vote at the extraordinary  meeting   in   our   hall   on  September 17 at 1:30 pm. Again  - a reminder to have your blue  1987 Membership Card ready  when entering the hall, to speed  up and facilitate the distribution  of ballots.  Remember - if you do not attend and vote, you have nobody  but yourself to blame if the outcome of the vote does not meet  your fancy. See you there!

Well-known for its lively atmosphere and tasty  pub fare, one is certainly guaranteed an evening to remember.  When my friend enticingly suggested we head out to the  Wakefield for dinner and dancing, little persuasion was needed.  Within minutes we were comfortably seated and gazing at the  violet hues of the sunset from our 'front row seats'.  For heartier folks on warm summer days, the outside veranda  offers fresh air and moderate breezes off the ocean.  Our stomachs reminding us we had skipped lunch, we hastily  turned to the pleasure of refueling. Ahh! What a healthy selection of entrees and appetizers awaited us.  Still feeling the chill of the evening air my partner chose the  French onion soup. She was rewarded with a piping hot bowl of  soup the French would be proud of. Delicately flavoured soup  steamed beneath a generous layer of melted cheese.  Thinking of nutrition, the platter of vegetables and dip caught  my eye. The heaping platter of vegetables arrived, thinly sliced  and artfully arranged, tasting garden fresh, combined with a dill  and sour cream dip that was delightful.  The mushroom burger my friend ordered was definitely the  hit of the evening. An enormous, juicy hamburger pattie topped  with sauteed mushrooms and crisp lettuce, nestled in a fresh  bun, it was all she could manage. But finish it she did, and every  last morsel. Crispy chips rounded off the entree.  Once again I chose the 'finger food'. Mounds of nacho chips  and melted cheddar cheese that were smothered with sour cream  and a mildly spiced tomato sauce.  Our appetites sated, we skipped the tantalizing offer of carrot  cake, blackberry pie, and nanaimo bars. Ne/t time!  The sound of music lured us to the dance floor where a duo  called 'The Shades' entertained the audience with upbeat tunes.  Reluctantly we left, satisfied, and promising ourselves we  would return for another memorable evening at the Wakefield.

Club members were saddened  to learn of the passing of Ian  Richards on September 2. Ian  passed away during the luncheon held at our Sunshine  Coast Golf Club for the Inter-  Club tournament between  Squamish and our seniors. To  add to the shock it was this  tournament and lunch which  Ian had organized.  Ian and his wife Barbara had  recently completed their new  retirement home on the Coast  and his contribution to this  community and our golf club  was just beginning to be felt.  Ian was a pleasure to know and  will be sadly missed by all of us.  The deepest sympathy of all.  members is extended to Barbara  and family.

Now began preparations for  the trip through France. There  are three routes from the  English Channel to the Mediterranean. We chose to go via the  Burgundy Canal, Canal  Burgogne. This would take us  up the Rivers Seine and Yonne,  through Burgundy on the canal  to the Saone, then south on the  Rivers Saone and Rhone to the  'Med'. This, the longest route,  is the most scenic and quiet.  We could not get past Rouen  until our masts were down! We  decided to wait and take them  ���down there. We would have  Margaret and Lefty to help us  and, besides, we were hoping to  enjoy one last day of sailing.  It was necessary to round up  about twenty old tires to use as  fenders in the locks. These  would be secured to the boat's  rails but also lashed together in  case one got loose. It's illegal to  use tires because if one gets  away it can jam a lock gate  (tires don't float), but  yachtsmen use them and the  authorities look the other way  as long as they are secure.  So, while awaiting Marg and  Lefty, I spent some time roaming the port looking for old tires  and rolling them home, no  mean feat on steep ramps.  Out guests arrived from Vancouver, ready for adventure.  Neither had been aboard a  sailboat before so we set off on  a day sail to Honfleur, an ancient and picturesque town near  the mouth of the Seine. It  boasts an unusual church, St.  Catherine's, with two naves  built of wood like upturned  hulls of ships. The explanation  is that when the people of the  parish wanted to build then-  church they kept costs to a  . minimum by using local materials and the skills of their shipbuilding workforce.  It was a beautiful day, and we  were to continue having fine  weather throughout July. The  wind came up on our return  journey to Le Havre and Margaret and Lefty had a taste of  sailing. This was the last time  Mouli would be a sailboat for  three months.  The trip to Rouen had to be  made in one day, since there are  no places to moor, and it had to  be made on the flood, because it  was impossible to proceed up  river on the ebb. This gave us  twelve hours for the journey of  some sixty miles and timing was  crucial. We left the harbour early in the morning and, along  with much commercial shipping, were ready to proceed up  river at the slack. The journey  was uneventful but not uninteresting. There was plenty of  traffic but the river is broad and  well-charted. Although in many  places we were going through  urbanized, industrial areas, in  others the river bank was green  and lovely, with high chalk  banks. Partially submerged pil  ings kept us alert.  We arrived at Basin St. Ger-  maine late afternoon. This was  as far as we could go until our  masts were down and is in the  centre of Rouen's industrial  area. Here are the huge docks  and warehouses accommodating the marine traffic. All goods  have to be transferred to rail,  truck or barge. We were to  share the river with these barges  as we continued up the Seine.

She is already working on a  proposal for a winter program  for six to 12 year olds.  Both Bolduc and Koponen  thought the programs attended  by close to 200 kids were successful but stressed the importance of bilingualism.  In fact, she suggested that  because of the similarities in the  programs, that a single person  be hired next year to oversee  both French Twist and Fun in  the Sun.

Coast News, September 7,1987  Trails still unmarked  by Ken Collins  The Tetrahedron Ski Project  has now completed all the  cabins but project co-ordinator  George Smith cautions people  against using the facilities until  the trails are completely marked  out.  "I'm really quite concerned  about people being lost," he  said during a tour last Friday  specifically designed for the  media.  Access to the area was gained  by utilizing a Jackson Brothers  logging road after first checking  with the company to ensure no  logging was going on. Near the  entrance was the shell of an old  car completely squashed with a  large log sitting on it. It was a  grim reminder of what happens  when a car and a loaded logging  truck find themselves on the  same road.  Eight miles later and approximately 3200 feet above sea level  we left the truck and started the  hike into Bachelor Lake. On the  way Smith explained how the  trails were selected.  "First we went over  topographical maps," he said.  The idea was to map out trails  where the slopes would give the  best contours for skiing. Then it  was a matter of cutting back the  brush and using the debris to fill  in the hollows. The cutting of  trees was kept to minimum and  areas that have been logged off  will be utilized for slopes  wherever practical.  The air was clear and fresh  and still, the silence broken only  by the sounds of our party  trudging through the bush and  an incredible quantity of different types of birds. "There's a  red breasted so-and-so...see that  ...that's a gold crested what ever  it was," said Smith as he carried  on a running commentary of  birds in the area.  When the cabin was reached  8*  OHUCH APPLIANCE  REPAIRS  is pleased to welcome to its staff  MIKE  KOHUCH  with 12 years of training  in the repair of all major  appliances.

"Under  the trapdoor in the floor is  where wood for the stove is to  be stored," Smith explained.  He also pointed out windows in  the loft that functioned as alternate entrances in case of heavy  snows.  "I'd really like to commend  the crew and volunteers," said  Smith, "It's as good as any  cabin system you will find in  B.C." Smith would also like to  Gun Club  under fire  The Sechelt Peninsula Rod  and Gun Club has come under  fire from surrounding residents.  Over 50 individuals have signed  a petition asking Sechelt Mayor  and council to serve the club  with a cease and desist order until it can clean up its act by  either relocating or enclosing  the entire range in a concrete  structure.  Tacked on to the petition was  an unsigned allegation that a  Mrs. Iris Turner had been hit in  the knee by a bullet from a .357  Magnum.  When interviewed by the  Coast News, Mrs. Turner stated  that yes she had been grazed by  a ricocheting bullet but that it  was in the spring and the police  immediately shut down the  range until they were satisfied  that sufficient adjustments were  made to prevent any reoccurrence.  "I was in the front yard at my  next door neighbour's and we  were talking and all of a sudden  I got hit," said Mrs. Turner, "I  didn't fall down but it sure  made my knee buckle."  The complaint lodged within  the petition only speaks of noise  pollution. "The increasing  residential population has a  right to peace and quiet without  disturbance caused by the hobby of a few," the petition states.  Mayor Koch said he would  personally investigate the matter  as well as send a copy of the 7  petition to the Rod and Gun  Club.  give thanks to the many  businesses who have donated  goods and services to the project.  "The project goes to the end  of October," said Smith. By  that time he believes the trails  and furniture will be completed.  ^T  KERN'S  Kern s.
