 -- - ��� e  v  Hospital said underfunded  Legislative Library  Parliament Buildings  Victoria, B.C. V8V 1X4  88.8  by Joel J��  St. Mary's Hospital will be  stripping the sheets off of eight  beds in an attempt to save  money, say hospital ad-  minstrators.  The closures will be in effect  for five months because "it  would be immoral to let our  operating capital go into the  red," says Board of Trustees  Chairman Tom Meredith.  "It's been four years since the  crunch came and we are at the  point where we are operating  close in a deficit situation."  Only into their second  quarter of a yearly budget ending March 31,1988, St. Mary's  has released a statement declaring it is underfunded by comparison to other hospitals of its  size and at the end of August  has incurred a deficit of  $59,000.  Working capital, that which  directly maintains hospital  operations and patient care,  stands at $44,000. The press  release states that by "the  Ministry of Health's own stan-  . -r- ~~ ...no auis snould  have a working capital of in excess of $200,000."  Meredith blames St. Mary's  cost woes on high demand placed on the hospital by the  Coast's high influx of tourists  over the summer season but  says 'at the moment our expenses are down somewhat'  because tourist season is over.  Hospital Administrator Ted  Wright says demand for beds  during the fall period is not as  high as the summer an4 winter  seasons.  This action will affect people  waiting for elective surgery with  a previous one month waiting  period being bumped to a possible two month delay and,  Meredith says, other economies  will follow suit in an attempt to  curtail costs not affecting the  quality of patient care.  They hope to keep staff at  optimum levels comparable to  the economic situation they're  in by eliminating enrolment  costs to training programs for  staff, ferry and overnight costs  involved in such programs, and  try to make up the difference  with inhouse training of staff.  "High standards will be  maintained," Meredith says,  but, "If a staff member feels  strongly (about attending a  training program) they will have  to apply to the Board of  Trustees" for coverage of costs  incurred.  The Board of Trustees 'will  not be attending functions  unless absolutely necessary.'  As to how far the economies  will go depends on how things  go over the next few weeks.  Staff layoffs do not appear immediate and Meredith says,  "This is an administration problem being looked into."  Wright believes, "Bed  closures will save on drugs and  medical supplies," and money  saved there may affect the other  economies being considered,  such as casual labour.  "In about four weeks we'll  know about casual labour."  The hospital is dealing with  floating capital costs when it  comes to certain items like  drugs, Meredith says. "Some  expenses are uncontrollable,"  and with most drug supplies  coming from the United States,  "the hospital can't budget on  things like drugs. Our costs are  high and our income is low."  The Board of Trustees,  through its press release,  believes St. Mary's is underfunded up to $20 per patient per  day by comparison with  hospitals of similar size and that  there are serious inequities in  the current funding formula.  The 'inequities' are not being  recognized by senior officials of  the Ministry of Health or the  Treasury Board even though St.  Mary's is undergoing a current  $5.5 million expansion from 71  beds to 121 beds and the  hospital will be getting an expanded operating budget to  match that expansion.  Funding for the construction  comes under a different budget  and is separate from operating  capital, says Wright, and the  system used now is a cost reimbursement system where yearly  budgets  are broken  up  into  quarterly periods and, in the  past, expenses exceeding any  specific quarter would be paid  by the government.  "This year we've been told  there is no more money for  hospital expenses," exceeding  that allowed in the yearly  budgets.  One expense St. Mary's has  had to endure is a $14,300  backlog on payments at the end  of August by the Workers'  Compensation Board (WCB)  on accounts concerning outpatients and costs they built up  during their stay at St. Mary's  which are supposed to be  covered by WCB. This is the  end result of a current dispute  between the WCB and the provincial government says Wright.  Acute care, Wright says, will  not suffer greatly because for  some reason there are beds  available in the long-term bed  units which will allow the  hospital to maintain a fair ratio  of beds available for emergency  patient demand.  At present, of the 71 beds the  hospital maintains close to 90  percent are being used. Forty-r  nine are acute care beds and 22  are long-term care.  "However," Meredith says,  "the bed closures may not last  the full five month duration  because if things do improve,  we certainly will open beds if we  have the money."  With the press release action,  which was released prior to informing the Ministry of Health  about the bed closures,  Meredith says, "I have no idea  what we can expect from this,"  in the way of garnishing more  money from the government to  keep the hospital running into'%.  deficit worse than the one at  present, and, as Board Chairman "I've go to do everything I  can think of.  Previously, the Board claims  St. Mary's has a history of 'exemplary efficient operation and-  financial management."        ��� 7;  Whatever   end   the   press,  release   entails,   Wright   says,  "We've got to try it."  The Sunshine  Published on the Sunshine Coast        25* per copy on news stands      October 5,1987  Fish dying in dry creekbed  Drought affects Gray  by Joel Johnstone  Fish were dying in a stretch of  Gray Creek because of a lack of  water partially due to the lack  of rain so far this fall.  One hundred meters  upstream from where Highway  101 crosses the-streami thete7is'���*  water but much of it was being  diverted inta a. storage pond by  Aquarius Seafarms Ltd.  Alerted Sunday morning by  Tuwanek resident Hugh McCourt, Wildlife Conservation  Officer Jamie Stephen went to  survey the scene. There he  found fish crowded into what  small pools remained and  several dead in and about the  rocks in the immediate area.  Most of the dead fish samples  taken, however, were trout and  a species known as scultin.  Stephen feared those remaining in the shallow pools would  On hunting trip  use up all the oxygen in a short  span of time and said it was  likely birds would take their toll  as well once they get wind of  what was happening.  He immediately went to  Aquarius where, he says,' 'They  showed,, nothing; but ^full ^co-  '������' ^' oration 'Snd^ jme- ihtafe^ias  been closed off. They've been  ���v first class."  Aquarius Vice-president of  Operations Yvonne Kraft says  they were not using the water  being drawn from the creek, adding that "scultin are fish that  can go without water for a long  time. They're sort of a pest in  the creek" and, though there  were some dead trout "there's  not really a loss of fish."  Stephen says eighty percent  of the fish he saw were scultin  but still "I think this is a very  significant and serious loss."  There is no way for him to  judge how many juvenile trout  were really effected by the  drainage, noting adult steelhead  and cutthroat trout, won't be  moving up the stream for at  least another month.  Taking water from the.creek  is legal^ Stephen says, arid he  believes tbiit^Wa^ confiritiihg*^  presstime) that Aquarius has a '  permit to draw ten cubic feet  per second from the creek from  October 1 to July 31.  Looking at the amount of  water being drawn from the  stream, he says "They're not  taking anything near what  they're permit would allow  them because there's just not  enough water."  "But," McCourt says, "they  are taking 70 to 80 percent of  what's there."  And Stephen agrees.  The creek wasn't dry Friday  afternoon "though it did seem a  bit low," says Faye McCourt,  who periodically walks her dog  to the creek and upstream.  September 30, Faye and some  friends visiting from Ontario  walked from the highway  upstream and didn't notice  anything peculiar about the  i ,��4evel ofiwater in the creek, They,?  did, however, notice the  Aquarius pond level was low  and was not taking any  noticable   amounts   of   water  Thursday, the McCourts and  Wayne Galbraith, another resident of Tuwanek, say some sort  of excavation took place around  the pond.  Galbraith says "Friday night  I drove over the bridge and  noticed the creek was extremely  low for this time of year."  Now water is once again  moving the 1000 or so meters  from the intake pond to the  Sechelt Inlet.  Clarence Joe Jr. dies suddenly  by John Burnside  A fall hunting trip to Thor-  manby Island was something  that Clarence Joe Jr. and his  elder brother Gilbert had done  many times together over the  course of their lives.  "That island fed us many  times in the lean years," Gilbert  Joe told the Coast News last  week.  It was just one day before  Clarence Jr.'s 50th birthday on  October 2nd when he and  Gilbert, Gilbert's son-in-law  Bob Robson and Gilbert's  grandson John Robson set out  in an outboard for the island,  leaving Sechelt breakwater just  after 7 am. It was to be Clarence  Jr.'s last hunting trip.  "We thought we might jig for  some cod," said Gilbert, "pick  a few apples from the wild orchard over there, and maybe get  ourselves a deer if we saw one.  "It    was    a    beautiful  morning," remembered Gilbert. "The fish were jumping all  over and seals were poking their  heads out of the water watching  us go by.  "We got near the island just  about an hour after leaving and  saw a deer on the bluff right  away. My brother told us to  turn the boat around and he  tried a couple of shots from the  boat but the wave action made  him miss. 'Take me ashore,' he  said, and about 40 feet from  shore he rested on a ledge of  rock and shot the deer. We all  hollered with glee and then he  shot a second deer. He crossed a  kind of gully after that and on  the far side shot a third deer.  "My son and grandson went  to help him with the deer. When  they got up to him he complained about his heart. They  hollered to me and I told them  he had his medication in his  pocket."  The medication failed to  revive the stricken hunter as did  prolonged mouth to mouth  resuscitation attempts. Gilbert  Joe and his grandson stayed  with Clarence still trying to  revive him while Bob Robson  went off to the Merry Island  lighthouse to radio for  assistance.  A hydrofoil was in the vicinity and arrived within an hour  but it was too late to help  Clarence Joe Jr.  Clarence had had heart trouble for several years. He was  recently a member of the  Sechelt Indian Band Council  and was to the end active in  Band affairs.  He is survived by his wife  Diane, son Robert, and  daughters Geraldine, Gloria,  Jackie and April.  B.C.

Coast News wins  The Sunshine Coast News has been awarded first place in  the 1987 B.C. and Yukon Community Newspaper Association competition for Best Advertising Design.  Competition judge Vice-President David Stanger of Baker  Lovick praised a campaign prepared by Advertising Manager  Fran Burnside for Blackberries of Sechelt for preparing  advertisements which 'would create a positive image for the  client while communicating specific sale offerings to the  public'.  Also winning honourable mention in this year's competition was Coast News columnist Peter Trower for the account  of a train wreck on the Kettle Valley Line in the 1920's.  Trower was competing in the Historical Writing Award  category.  Harbour Publishing of  Madeira Park has three books  shortlisted for awards in four  categories in this year's B.C.  Book Prizes. Harbour and a  Vancouver publisher, Douglas  & Mclntyre, are tied for the  most nominations, with five  each.  Topping the list, with three  nominations, is the beautiful  Nature Diary of a Quiet  Pedestrian by Philip Croft, a  charming, lovingly-illustrated  chronicle of a pensioner's daily  walks along the beach and  through the forest of West Vancouver. The book is a beautiful  tribute to the plants, animals,  and seasons of the West Coast.  Fittingly, it is nominated for the  Bill Duthie Bookseller's Choice  Award, which honours publishing excellence. It is also a finalist  in two other categories: the  Roderick Haig-Brown Regional  History Prize for the best book  about B.C., and the Hubert  Evans Non-Fiction Prize.  Nature Diary is in competition for the Haig-Brown prize  with another Harbour publica-.  tion, Alan Twigg's Vancouver  and its Writers. This book is a  guided tour of 100 literary landmarks in Greater Vancouver,  with biographical and bibliographical comments on well  over 100 writers and books  from the city's past and present7  A third Harbour book, Tom  Wayman's The Face of Jack  Munro, is shortlisted for the  B.C. Poetry Prize. In his  poems, Wayman chronicles and  comments on B.C. life and  politics of the past few years;  centering on the Solidarity  movement of- 1983, and the  aftermath of the Kelowna accord.  Last year Harbour's  bestseller Keepers of the Light  won the Roderick Haig-Brown  prize, and publisher Howard  White is hoping to repeat that  success when the awards are  handed out at a banquet in Vancouver's Pan Pacific Hotel on  October 30. .|j  Books from Harbour;  Publishing are available in local'  bookstores. Coast News, Octobers, 1987  ��� V  &  O-  j.*  >'  'v  .V-* i  *v  Euphoria may  he premature  There will be, no doubt, in many quarters a feeling of  euphoria accompanying the successful completion of the  free trade talks with the United States and time may in fact  prove that we have been enriched by the last-minute  heroics of the Canadian negotiators. There are some  vestigial notes of concern that it might be useful to sound,  : however.  Much has been made, for example, about the fact that  ' tough-talking Simon Reisman brought the Americans to  their negotiating senses - or knees depending on your state  of euphoria - by withdrawing from the talks 10 days before  the deadline. It will be portrayed as brilliant, tough  negotiating on the part of our representatives, and perhaps  it was.  What is disturbing, however, is that it was an American  deadline that we were scurrying to meet. If what is being or  has been decided is to govern the trading relationships of  Ncrth America for many years would it not have been better to proceed slowly to make sure that all of the details  and ramifications, or as many as possible, had been given  full and fair consideration.  Making decisions in exhausting bargaining sessions at  the 11th hour may be the stuff of which heroism is made  but with such all-encompassing decisions involved it would  appear prudent that avoidable heroism ought to be avoided.  There is, of course, the political side issue of a federal  government desperately in need of a feather in its political  cap. It is just such a need when married to haste that gives  one cause for concern.  There is, too, the disturbing realization that the United  States is now the world's greatest debtor nation, an unenviable- status it has attained just over two years after it  became a debtor nation for the first time in its history.  The free trade agreement may mean great things for the  Canadian future, but there are those who would argue that  Canada should be diversifying its trading patterns around  the world, not piling still more of its eggs in the American  basket. We may have been rushed into something that in  future we will find cause to regret.    .  Bicycle safety  teaching needed  It may be timely to issue a plea for some training in bicycle safety on the Sunshine Coast.  Can we be alone in being horrified recently as young  cyclists weaved in front of oncoming vehicles, proceeded  down narrow roads together on opposite sides of the road,  approached oncoming highway traffic after dark riding on  the shoulder within two or three feet of highway traffic to  which they were, entirely invisible.,.....,.....;,,...T.%.. ...,. .,,���..;.

Residents are still protesting the SCRD Board's decision to lease 7010 square feet of space at the Royal Terraces in Sechelt.  UBC counsellor Jim Jamieson says that Elphinstone  graduates once again outperformed their peers from  across B.C. at the University of British Columbia.  10 YEARS AGO  At least 11 people in three different households in the  Davis Bay area report seeing unidentified flying objects  hovering over the Trail Islands in Trail Bay.  The regional board hears conflicting views about the  use of motor boats on Ruby Lake.  Ralph, the pet deer which belonged to the Danroths on  King Road, can be seen in his new career in show  business on the Grizzly Adams television series.  20 YEARS AGO  This week's display of the Sunshine Coast harvest includes a 17 ounce apple; a pear weighing one and a half  pounds; a 100 pound squash; and a 15 and a half pound  cabbage.  30 YEARS AGO  The first plane to land at the Gibsons-Sechelt  Municipal Airport is a Fleet Canuck belonging to  Westview logging operator Ray Brett who was at the controls. The landing and subsequent take off were accomplished smoothly despite the nature of the runway.  40 YEARS AGO  A reader writes: "The recent meeting of the Board of  Trade in Sechelt is a fair sample of how not to get things  done. The general idea prevalent at the meeting seemed  to be scoffing and jeering at government servants and  their efforts.  The Sunshine  Published by   GLASSFORD PRESS LTD.

SUBSCRIPTION RATES  Canada: 1 year $35; 6 months $20; Foreign; 1 year $40   When Nikki Weber was named Sechelt's Good Citizen of the  Year last week by the Sechelt  and District Chamber of Commerce smiles of approval lit up  faces all over the Sunshine  Coast. Even the most generous  of them, however, was a pale  shadow of the smile that  habitually graces the features of  the lady herself.  Nikki Weber assures us that  she has only been on the Sunshine Coast for seven years but  it is hard to remember what the  place was like without her. Her  ' ^"'smilef' her' butstaiiding abilities  y.. .^as-'jui-: entertainer, and the bub-m-  bling enthusiasm and generosity,  with which she shares her gifts'  both as performer and teacher  have made her one of the best-  loved figures on the Coast.  Nikki was born in Curacao in  the Dutch West Indies where  her father was a magistrate. She  left there at the age of 10 to  return to Holland for the sake  of the education of herself, her  sister and her brother. Her  father remained in the Caribbean. Their return to Holland  was just a few years before the  outbreak of the Second World  War.  #��  "We learned how to appreciate food during the Nazi  occupation of Holland,"  remembers Nikki. "We found it  wherever we could, including  from garbage cans."  It is not a time that Nikki  remembers with fondness.  "I have seen so much hatred  come from politics, families  divided and hatred  everywhere."  With her father still in the  Caribbean, Nikki, her mother  and siblings were given preference and were on the first boat  that left Holland after .the war.  "After another' shbrt' Wayin  the Antilles, the family moved  to New York where Nikki was a  passenger hostess on a Dutch  airline.  "It was an exciting time, she  remembers. "My job was exciting and I was planning on attending the Juliard School of  Music."  Then came a phone call from  a Canadian she had met in  Holland, 'a dashing devil', and  Nikki wound" up married and  living in Burnaby instead of attending the Juliard School of  Music in New York.  "We lived in many places:  Burnaby, Deep Cove, New  York again, Edmonton," says  Nikki, "but absolutely nothing  beats the Sunshine Coast."  Nikki has been the presiding  genius   over   many   musical  groups since her arrival on the  Coast.   The  69'ers,   a  group  associated with Senior Citizen's  Branch 69 in Sechelt; the much-  loved Halfmoon Hams, which  delighted many audiences during the life of the group - 'there  were eight members, only Connie Wilson wasn't from Halfmoon Bay'; the Mini-Mob, a  group of children, 13 in number  and ranging in age from seven  to 12; The GeeGee's, a quartet  of entertainers, two in their 30's  and two close to the 60's - 'the  name comes from generation  gap'.  At the present time Nikki has  the Semi-Tones and the Rolling  Tones in action. The first-  named is a group of nine girls in  their teens and the Rolling  Tones is a group of semi-  classical singers with soprano,  alto, tenor and bass sections.  "We need a few more men  right now," says Nikki.  Since 1984 Nikki's music  store, Strings and Things, in  Sechelt has been a much-loved  feature of Coast life.  Nikki has three sons and  three grandchildren with whom  she keeps in constant touch.  One son is the Deputy Minister  of Justice for the Saskatchewan  government and another is a  teacher and administrator at  Douglas College.  Of her Good Citizen Award,  Nikki says, "I am very  honoured by this recognition.  Just last year I got the  Volunteer of the Year Award.  What I do is what I've been doing all my. life."  The love affair between Nikki  Weber and the Sunshine Coast  is mutual.  "The Sunshine Coast' has  been immensely warm and good  to me," says Nikki. "I'm  honoured and grateful for the  assistance and support. The  people seem very special to me,  delightful and warm."  And you to us, Nikki Weber,  and you to us. The staff of the  Coast News joins me in offering  our warmest congratulations.  Peace notes  Dangerous defence  by Alan Wilson  The peace issues course which  I am helping to teach at  Malaspina College in Nanaimo  is subtitled 'Changing Our  Ways of Thinking' for the very  good reasons that if humanity  does not change, then sooner or  later we're bound to end in a  nuclear holocaust.  Not all change is desirable,  however, take the move away  from the theory of nuclear  deterrence for example. For all  its MADness, Mutual Assured  Destruction was simple to  understand.  Deterrence should theoretically have been stable at quite  low levels, with perhaps a few  dozen intercontinental ballistic  missiles and bombers. Two  hundred warheads are still sufficient to destroy either side.  There were problems with  deterrence, of course. One was  the discomfort of living with the  knowledge that your enemy  could destroy you and the fear  that they might be crazy enough  to try it. That fear, and the lure  of vast profits to be made by the  weapons makers who promote  fear, led to an expansion of the  nuclear arsenal way beyond  what was necessary. We now  have some 50,000 warheads,  and more every day.  Was the theory of deterrence  faulty, or did the strategists just  have to keep busy to justify  employment? Whatever the  cause, deterrence has been  quietly edged out of the way by  nuclear war-fighting doctrines.  Unfortunately this is one of  those cases where change isn't  an improvement.  Why did this happen? Probably because of fear. The big  worry over the years was always  that one side might depart from  the idea of deterrence and start  to develop a defence against  nuclear weapons. If either side  developed a credible missile  defence, it would have effectively 'disarmed' the other.  The one without a defence  would have been in a very  vulnerable position. He (always  a 'he') would no longer have  had any way of deterring his opponent. For this reason, the  superpowers concluded an anti-  ballistic missile (ABM) treaty 15  years ago which restricted both  ^nations in this field.  Unfortunately the lure of a  missile defence captured the  mind (?) of Ronald Reagan who  in 1983 launched the Strategic  Defence Initative research program. Naturally the Soviets  were worried and wanted the  program halted. Many in the  US Congress have similar fears  and are now resisting the attempt by the Reagan administration to 're-interpret' the  ABM treaty to allow limited  Star Wars deployment. But it  may be too late.  Should we be concerned  about SDI? After all, most independent scientists tell us that  such a system could never work  perfectly anyway. But the fear is  that such a shield, even an imperfect one, would give any attacker a tremendous advantage.  It would take away the  assurance of mutual destruction. It would make a first-  strike possible and perhaps even  tempting.  What are the components of  a first-strike? 1) accurate  weapons capable of destroying  most of your opponent's  weapons before they are launched, and 2) a defensive system to  shield against the few surviving  warheads coming your way.  These are the capabilities  which the US has been acquiring over the last few years. Of  course, from the Soviet perspective, this is very threatening.  And it is inevitable that they will  respond, just as they have at  almost every stage in the history  of the arms race, by building  more weapons so they can be  assured of overpowering any  such shield.  Whatever you think of the  Soviets, you have to recognize  that they are part of the world  community and are going to do  whatever they have to do to ensure their survival, just as the  US will. Both sides have historically built vast weaponry in the  name of national security and  they're not suddenly going to  stop unless they both agree to  do so.  So while deterrence was  perilous, the world we live in  now is worse. We're in a  strategic limbo, half-way between the MADness of deterrence and the insanity of Star  Wars.  This is where we in Canada  suddenly find ourselves with an  incredible opportunity. Located  between the superpowers, our  territory is crucial to the US  plans for missile defence. Were  we to not participate, we could  serve as a buffer zone providing  increased security to both sides.  We could operate surveillance  systems, like the North Warning  System, independently, providing information to both  sides.  Unfortunately we're doing  exactly the opposite. Through  NORAD, the North American  Aerospace Defence agreement,  we already host a surveillance  system which feeds information  only to the US and we already  provide facilities which are of  use ONLY for a nuclear attack  on the Soviet Union.  Worse yet, we will almost certainly end up with ABM  defences in our north. Why?  Because during an earlier  renewal of the NORAD agreement, the clause prohibiting  ABM development was quietly  dropped, and the Mulroney  government resisted re-instating  the clause in the most recent  renewal last year.  These ominous developments  are to be continued and extended according to the  government's white paper on  defence. For all our good intentions, Canada is helping to  prepare for the holocaust.  If we keep operating on the  idea of military strength to provide security, if we keep trying  to deny our ultimate vulnerability, and don't begin to seek  global security, then we will  probably end up by destroying  ourselves. This is why the white  paper is an unacceptable and  dangerous document. .-.._..-^--jij:.<.--.., ��;_��� ^-ij.--.' -��������'-*   �����-  �������� �� *-���  Coast News, October 5,1987  &  Editor:  In anticipation of Fire  Prevention Week, I have been  asked by my department to seek  a bit of publicity in an attempt  to increase public awareness  and involvement in the fire  prevention effort.  Communities on the Sunshine Coast are well served by  their local fire departments, but  many people are not aware that  we are all volunteers. This requires that we devote most of  our time and efforts to fire suppression and training, and  leaves little time for fire prevention activities. We are forced to  rely heavily on the concern and  common sense of the public to  keep fire losses to a minimum.  It is a well known fact that  the vast majority of fires are a  result of the 'human factor'  whether it be ignorance of  potential hazards or just plain  carelessness. Every time I hear  the panic stricken voice of a  caller on the fire phone, I can't  help thinking that mere moments ago, this person was probably just like most of us in the  belief that 'it will never happen  to me'. Unfortunately, unless  we keep fire prevention ever  present in our minds, it can happen to any of us.  There is much that the public  can do to reduce the tragedy  and financial losses caused by  fire. For example, statistics have  proven that smoke alarms save  lives and property, yet many  people still don't take advantage  of this highly effective safety  device that can be purchased for  less than the price of a case of  beer!  One recent customer of ours  suffered major damage to his  home, damage which could  easily have been prevented by a  smoke alarm. Oh, he had one  alright. It was still in its  package in a closet. They don't  work very well that way.  Every building occupied by  people should have a fire escape  plan, especially residential  buildings. I wonder how many  of your readers would know exactly what to do if they awoke  in the middle of the night to a  house full of blinding, lung  searing smoke. Do their  children know what to do?  We are proud of the job we  do as Volunteer Fire Fighters,  but we are the last resort. We  cannot perform miracles. We  cannot undo the damage caused  by ignorance or carelessness.  We cannot erase the horrendous  economic losses, the heartache  of losing one's home and possessions, or the anguish caused  by the loss of loved ones. We,  can only share briefly in the  agony and try our best to perform a miracle next time.  I've been around long enough  to know that most people won't  bother to read this letter once  they realize that it is only about  fire prevention. But if I have  stirred the slightest concern in  the minds of anyone out there, I  urge them to get involved in the  fire prevention effort. Drop in  on your local fire department  on their practice night, ask for  their advice, and get to know a  local firefighter. There is probably one in your neighbourhood.  C.J. Caldwell  S.V.F.D.  Beachcombers leave  Editor:  "The Beachcombers" have  successfully completed our sixteenth season of shooting. This  translates to 1500 filming days  for 300 episodes or a total of  150 hours of programming.  This year we did everything  from sinking boats, blowing up  barges and to rescuing elephants. None of which would  have been possible without the  support and co-operation of the  town and people of Gibsons  and the Sunshine Coast.  On behalf of the cast and  crew, we would like to extend  our sincere thanks to everyone  who has helped and supported  us this season, especially those  who were inconvenienced by the  traffic delays and everyone who  went the 'second mile' to help  us find unusual props and locations.  We were made to feel wel  come and very much part of the  community. We hope that  everyone will benefit from the  exposure the show has created  as much as we have by shooting  on the Sunshine Coast.  We look forward to seeing  our old friends and making new  ones when the seventeenth  season begins next spring.  Shows shot this season will  begin airing at 7:30 pm, Sunday, October 4 oh the CBC network.  Once again, many thanks to  all.

RRIFs  VERSUS  ANNUITIES:  Now the difference is even larger!  Registered Retirement Income Funds have always offered greater control and flexibility than an annuity -plus  the potential for capital growth.  But as a result of the most recent budget, the difference in favour of an Industrial Group of Funds RRIF  is now even greater.  You still choose the investments...you stiM direct any  estate planning...and you will still have the right to  transfer at any time. But now you will be able to take as  much income as you like each year (beyond the  specified annual minimum from as many plans as you -  like)...and you won't have to wait until the year after  your purchase to start receiving payments.  So, once again, the choice is simple. What would you  rather have: control, flexibility and potential growth? Or  an annuity?

"We've ija(j gjjj ggjjg ^ ^  last week," says fire department  spokesman Steve Sleep, "and  four of them came in the last 48  hours."  ; This past weekend the alarm  just wouldn't stop. It went off  three times Saturday and one of  those was a call to put out a fire  which had been put out the day  before.  "The ground is really, really  dry. The little bit of rain we're  getting isn't even penetrating  the ground.  ��� "That fire was deeper than  we thought. It was actually bur  ning underground. It's like peat  moss underneath and it's almost  impossible to stop. When we  left the area before we thought  we had put it out."  Sleep says all of these fires  were man-made, mostly due to  people assuming the rain which  had fallen would make it safe to  burn stubble, dead brush, and  garbage compiled over the last  few months while burning bans  were in effect.  "We had no calls in  August," he says.  Now that summer is over, it's  a different story.  "One guy tried to burn  because he thought his permit  would expire at the end of  September, burned and thought  it was out."  In actuality, permits expire  on October 30 and after that  you don't need a permit because  the rain season has set in for the  duration of the winter.  The Gibsons Volunteer Fire  Department covers the area  from the YMCA Camp to  Cemetery Road and all points in  between.  Though not sure what other  fire departments are doing  about the dry weather, Sleep advises people to use common  sense at all times when attempting to burn materials of any  kind.  "This ban is just a  reminder," he says.  Guess Where  ���W��T��Wf��m��W*WWW��W��WW����  TT  The usual prize of $5 will be awarded to the first correct entry  drawn which locates the above.

He says to the eight to eighteen  year olds, some in uniform,  some not. For many it is their  first night here with the cadets  at the United Church in Gibsons.  "I'm not here to tell you not  to take it. The truth is some of  you probably will."  A few speak up and say they  might try it if and when the time  comes.  And that's a decision, Jackson says, they will have to make  all on their own, but warns  "you can't make a decision if  you don't know the facts."  That's the reason Cadet  Commanders asked Jackson to  speak to these youth about  drugs, how they come into a  person's life and what they can  do to a person both physically  and mentally.  From softcore marijuana and  hashish to cocaine, pep's and  heroin, Jackson lists only some  of the vast substances hidden in  the circles of peer groups  teenagers will associate with as  they grow up.  But other drugs are already  here and openly accepted by  society, like tobacco, coffee,  and alcohol, and these have to  be viewed with some caution as  well.  "Tobacco. There's a bad  drug." Jackson says. "Everyone takes it even though they  know it kills them.  "You have to ask yourself  cam I going to start smoking  just because someone offers me  a cigarette?' "  The same goes for alcohol.  "Drunk driving is a big killer".  When the time comes for  many of them to make their  own decision "your parents  aren't going to be there. You  have to ask yourself 'why try it  in the first place? To feel good?  Peer pressure?' "  "You are sober right now.  You have to think about it.  Look at who the burnouts are,"  On that note, Jackson offers  Health and Welfare Canada's  Stay Real and Facts About  Drugs, a .few of a series 6f pam- ?  phlets published for parents by  the government to inform people about some realities of the  unreal world of drugs.  They are literally grappled  for, but who is to say these  booklets alone will determine  whether or not some of the  cadets here will try drugs in the  future.  Jackson likens it to learning  by watching those around you  and choosing then to make the  same mistakes or not.  "If you want to ruin your life  go ahead and try these things."  Yet the effects of drugs are  probably foreign to these  cadets, and as with most  teenagers, therein lies the temptation to experiment, which  can lead to a process Jackson  has seen in the past.  "Start out with cigarettes,  then beer, then pot, then harder  substances like coke, pep, and  heroin," and, though adding it  doesn't happen to all, it could  be a catalyst to an addiction of  some form or another.  "I'll be here for about five  years or more" on the front  lines of the Sunshine Coast  where drugs and alcohol show  their worst sides, Jackson says.  That is the hard truth of being a  law enforcement officer.  "I don't ever want to see you  in an accident." he says, looking about with the calm reserve  of knowing the message may be  there but ultimately it is up to  each and every one of them to  make up their own minds.  12 SPEED TOURING BIKE  CLEA ROUT  HOCKEY SKATES  Micron Mega 10-90 Pro Line Reg. ��275  s.i.��199*"  Micron Mega 10-90-2    Boys Reg. ��165  s.i. * 135"  Micron Flex-Plus Boys    ��4   Adult    69  U08 Reg. $289.95   Sale  Routier    Reg. $229.95  Sal�� $1 8998  15%OFF  Mens, Ladies & Childrens  SKI JACKETS  Kx 20% OFF  ^K.^����    ..����. ^    -~.w       -  - TABLE [A\k  �� BcniirE TO CLEAR \PX       U 'Wk^ Brooks & Bill Rodgers  rHECK OUR rEDXdCat SAVINGS      \\W       foul weather  CH FOR GREAT 5MV" V^V JOGGING SUITS  W:-:��Wi^W&-  sunnycrest Mail, J  "*  ^ Prices effective:  Gibsons Mon., Oct. 5  .�����, ..   ~        . �� ~ ^ *o Sun., Oct. 11  100% Locally Owned & Operated  OPEN SUNDAYS  11 am - 5 pm  Fresh Wnole - Utility Grade  ROASTING 1    1Q  CHICKEN ��2 ez     I - HI  Frozen - Utility Grade  YOUNG 1   AQ  GOOSE    ��,3.29 ,<,.

Slash fires  are all out-  by Joel Johnstone  The fires are out until spring.  At least controlled ones, in the  Gibsons and Sechelt areas are.  Prescribed slash burning  above Langdale had some  residents out on their front  lawns believing the controlled  burn to be an actual forest fire.  But Reynold Schmidt, Duty Officer for BC Forests and Lands,  says the eight hectare burn was  a planned one.  "Now we're completed with  the burns", he says, which are  part of regular fire hazard control carried out in the wake of  lumber operations and make  way for reforestation, so that  new trees can be established.  "We won't have to use any  brush clearing agents", because  burning removes the chemical  alternative, he says, noting that  the helicopter supported crews  save silviculture reforestation  programs nearly 50 percent of  the time it takes to establish new  trees in logged areas.  It's also better than letting  dead slash lie as a potential fire  hazard.  "This way we have a crew on  hand to control it."

The  highway skirts some and passes  others between the houses and  the grain elevator. Most just  have their name signs posted.  But Yellowgrass has several  signs, one of which says  'Population 500'. There was  another sign saying something  about speed which I didn't see.  The only one of its kind on the  highway.  Yes, Yellowgrass has a police  department of its very own, and  its single member caught up to  me north of the town and very  politely, and slowly, wrote up a  voluntary fine to be mailed to  the province. No reduction for  seniors.  Yes the fine has been remitted  out of loyalty to the old home  province. Although I appreciate  the exasperation in Yellowgrass,  I marvel at the expense they  have gone to to make .a point.

Helen Granbery, before experiencing a stroke, was a  world-famous fashion designer  and interior decorator. She was  top designer at Bloomingdales  in New York for a number of  years. Since having a stroke, she  has, through tremendous  courage and determination,  made a remarkable recovery  and, since coming to live in Gibsons, has been putting on a  yearly show at Hunter Gallery  during October, which is Stroke  Month.  Helen's gift for line and colour is manifested beautifully in  her lovely vests, jackets and  gowns worn gracefully by Judy  Ryland, Carol Caldwell, Brenda  Manton, Barbara Yates, Loret-  ta Macklin, Nancy Clarke,  Peggy Campbell, Julie Skippon,  Angela Middleton, Nicole  Caldwell, Kelly Robertson,  Nicole (Nick) Nolet, and Jenny  Robertson. Candy Caldwell,  who after assisting so much during rehearsals, was too ill to appear.  Since Helen Granbery uses  recycled materials obtained  from thrift stores, we thought it  only fitting to have our younger  models wear clothes from Nifty  Thrifty's which supports Gibsons Food Bank. We do, therefore, want to give a big 'Thank  You' to Orla Jorgenson,  Melanie Sluis, Danielle Robert  son, Virginia Detwiller, Brittany  Robertson, Robin Gileo and little Brittany Sluis.  I would like to thank Helen  Granbery, very sincerely, for  permitting us to display her  creations and hope we might be  given another opportunity, perhaps next year. Helen's creations are on display at the  Hunter Gallery - in the windows  and in the showroom at the  rear.  We would also like to thank  the Sunnycrest Mall Association  for giving us the space for the  Fashion Show; Elise Rudland of  the Stroke Club for her  assistance and pertinent information; Silks and Lace and  staff for all their assistance,  from accessories, use of change  rooms, advice to models, etc.;  The Canadian Imperial Bank of  Commerce for the use of their  corral (or dividers) to keep  separated the audience and the  models on the runway; and  Green Scene for the generous  use of their lovely floral arrangements.  We also wish to thank Joyce  Ripper, Carmen Jorgenson and  Kathy Love for helping behind  the scenes (those costume  changes), John Manton for  making our signs and posters as  well as much toting and carrying all manner of heavy articles  and boxes, and Pat Dupont for  the use and operations of his invaluable sound system and  other good deeds too numerous  to mention.  Last but not least, mention  must be made of Petra Detwiller, who molded a motley  crew into 'a really great shew'.  Thank you one and all.  ^faiuty *do#tn4>  Inquiries invited by persons interested in  Profitable Part Time  Honey Production Business  on the Sunshine Coast.

VON 3A0  W&B^&imSWI^^^S  Coast News, October 5,1987  ->.  7.  by George Cooper, 886-8520  October has been declared  Crime Stoppers month in  Canada. This is the organization that provides citizens with  the means to report anonymously to the police any information of a crime they may  know about.  Phone 886-TIPS can become  the motto of alert citizens who  help keep the peace. Fear and  apathy were once considered the  two factors that prevented  citizens from co-operating with  the police, and to combat this  and keep or even regain public  confidence in them, the police  forces throughout North  America have encouraged the  Crime Stoppers organization.  A detective in Albequerque,  New Mexico, thought of the  idea in the mid-1970's to help  rid his city of its notorious  reputation of the highest per  capita crime rate in the country.  He convinced his department  that anonymity and even a cash  award would get people to  phone in with information.  Rewards in cash are available  for information that leads to an  arrest and prosecution, or for  the recovery of stolen property,  or the seizure of narcotics.  Callers are given a code  number to ensure their  anonymity and any reward is  handed out privately in cash by  one of the citizen directors of  the local Crime Stoppers. At no  time is the informant's identity  known to the police.  And how is the Crime Stoppers program funded? There are  no grants from province or Ottawa. Each community supports the organization by donations from interested private  citizens, businesses, clubs, professional associations and civic  groups. The administration of  Crime Stoppers is done by  volunteers with the assistance of  an RCMP officer. There is  now, by the way, a full slate of  directors for Crime Stoppers on  the Sunshine Coast.  Brochures and videos for information on Crime Stoppers  will be on display October 17 at  the Fall Fair to be held in the  Sechelt Elementary gym.  COLLEGE OF TEACHERS  The election of 15 zonal  members of the first council of  the College of Teachers has  been announced. If you once  held a valid teaching certificate  and haven't taught for some  time, you can see about getting  on that voters' list by telephoning 1-800-663-9161. Have all  relevant information ready.  BIRD WATCH  Fall brings birds unseen all  summer to the small bird sanctuary in the bottom half of the  lot.  A raucous Stellar's jay, for  instance, throwing dead leaves  from the eavestrough in his  search for seeds. And a small  flock of band-tailed pigeons  tramping heavily on the  dogwood branches as they eat  and scatter the bright red seeds,  the first suniving crop in the  several years of the fungus infestation of the dogwood trees.  OPEN HOUSE  James Davidson, principal of  Langdale Elementary, says the  school is holding an Open  House this Wednesday evening,  October 7. Each classroom will  have curriculum materials on  display and the year's plan for  each grade will be available to  parents.  BOOBY PRIZE  At the end of this summer the  old fellows' golf schedule finished off with the awarding of  prizes. The prizes, of course, go  only to the deserving.

POTTERY. BLOWN GLASS, CARDS. POSTERS AND CUSTOM FRAMING  those with sand trickling out of  the bags beneath their eyes win  prizes.  Now my good friend Casper,  which is not his real name you  understand, received a plaque,  quite an ornate one, for most  frequently over the season of  having the worst score of the  day. The booby prize in fact.  He had walked many times to  the scoring table after the morning's play to receive his package  of tees. All to the friendly jeers  of his fellow seniors.  And on that final day as he  crept back to his seat with the  plaque that marked his shame,  he growled, "You guys are only  jealous."  The next day I was astonished  'to come upon Caspar in the  Sechelt Mall with a crowd  gathered about him as he  pointed out the features of his  prize plaque.  When the crowd dispersed to  get back to school for the afternoon classes, I asked why he so  brazenly boasted of his low  standing.  "Those kids understand  about getting low scores,"  Casper said, "But more important, this trophy is the first  recognition I've ever had at the  club, and I'm a charter  member. Never have I been on a  prize list. Hole-in-oners get all  kinds of acclaim and just for  mere luck. Consistency like  mine has at last been recognized.  "And," he went on, "that  recognition at long last has really built up my self-esteem."  Casper has shown me there's  a chance for all of us sometime,  somewhere. But I'll never know,  if he was serious or just giving  vent to a wry sense of humour.

BRIDGE  Twenty ladies took part in the  Merry-go-round bridge party  sponsored by the St. Mary's  Hospital Auxiliary, Sechelt  Branch at St. Hilda's Hall on  September 24.  First   prize   winners   were  frothy Bayles and her guest  from California, Yvonne Owls.  Second winners were Margaret  Gemmel and Jean Coyle.  There was also a special prize  for Lola Campbell and Nollie  Vetterii.  The Roberts Creek bridge  schedules are a little late due to  holidayers but should be ready  by the end of this week.  AUXILIARY MEETING  The Sechelt Branch of St.  Mary's Hospital will be meeting  at St. Hilda's Church Hall on  Thursday, October 8 at 1:30  pm.

Plans are well underway for  the forthcoming fashion show  on November 14 at the Sechelt  Indian Band Community Hall.

Now, don't get  angry because Christmas will inevitably come with all the pomp  and glitter. For members,  however, remember there are  only 54 days until our Fall  Bazaar, and if you have not  already started or completed  your projects to contribute to  this important fund raiser, then  your crafty craft people who  faithfully turn up on each  Thursday at 10 am ��would probably say "please do".  Speaking of fall and winter,  when driving to and from  Sechelt the falling leaves  become more and more prominent, which takes me back to  my early school days when we  learned a poem. I don't know  who wrote it but I'll never  forget it. Here it is:  Oak leaves and maple leaves are  playing in the yard,  Some have ruddy faces, they  run about so hard.  'Tag' says the maple leaf,  'You're it' cried the oak  And   back   and  forth   they  scamper,   these merry little  folk!  So much for school days.  PLANT SALE  Shame on me! Other than a  preliminary reminder that our  members should prepare their  plants for the October 3 sale,  the cogs didn't mesh somewhere  along the line and the final  notice was not sounded. Hopefully the community channel  notice and locally distributed  posters have done the job on  short notice.  HALLOWEEN TEA  If you check your activity  sheets, you should note on your  calendar the Halloween Tea on  October 29 at 1:30 pm. Other  than a reminder at this time,  further explicit details will be  forthcoming at a later date.  FUN NIGHT  Again, checking your activity  sheets, you will note an evening  "Fun Night" listed on Saturday  evenings 'as announced'. Fun  Night was started early last spring when a number of regular  activities were amalgamated on  one night. This did not prove to  be successful because of a  number of factors involved.  However, Fun Night should  seem to be possible with probably only one activity per  night. Let's say dancing, cards,  aggravation, bingo, etc., on  successive nights. It probably  will not happen without a  volunteer chairperson to get it  together. Do I hear a volunteer  and helper saying: "Let's investigate and try it"?  SPAGHETTI DINNER  Although I was out of town  for the spaghetti dinner, I  understand there were over  ninety hungry people who  showed up to enjoy the efforts  of head spaghetti chef, Doug  Third and Olive Marshall and  her hard working committee.  The thanks of Branch 69 are in  order for their efforts, which  contributed just that much  more toward our new hall  building fund.  REMINDER  Again you should consult  your calendar and mark Saturday, November 21. That will be  another memorable night when  good citizen, Nikki Weber  presents her 'Night To Remember' concert. Although that may  seem a long way in the future, a  limited number of tickets will be  printed shortly and will be  available from the usual individuals and outlets. Unfortunately our obsolete hall will  only hold a limited number people.  Judging from past performances, Nikki's concerts have  played to a full house.  There will probably be a  definite announcement in this  column next week regarding  ticket sales for this popular  event.  1 n#s  ENTER OUR DRAW For a size 2-12  Dinosaur Fleece Shirt  In The Design Of Your Choice  I 15%  OFF ALL DINOSAUR ITEMS  except Dragonfly fleece shirts  Stickers ��� Soap ��� Toothbrush holder ��� Erasers ��� Tights  ��� Clothing ��� etc.  Trail Bay Centre,  Sechelt  885-5255  MMM&wWmWeSi  by Nancy MacLarty  I have, as I am sure most of  you have, things that bug me.  Some of these bugs are minor  irritations, others cause major  grumblings and even the odd  four letter word. Each causes  some stress and, since they say  it's better to get things out in the  open and not allow feelings of  anger and frustration to fester  inside of us, I will now for my  health's sake list these bugs.  They are not necessarily in  the order of importance, just as  they come to me. In any case,  I'm sure you will find some you  agree with and others that seem  silly. Nevertheless; herewith;  'The MacLarty Bug List'.  Drivers who pull out from a  side road onto the highway  causing you to brake suddenly  only to turn off to another side  road a few hundred yards later;  drivers who don't signal until  they are turning; drivers who  don't signal.  Price stickers that won't  come off without damaging the  item you've bought for a gift,  like books, records, cassettes,  etc.; price stickers that cover the  'best before' date on food.  Recipes that call for two  grams' of this or that, when I  don't have a gram scale.  People who clear cut complete lots to improve their view  when topping would do as well;  people who leave the trees  they've cut where they drop and  create fire hazards.  Politicians who say one thing  and do another; politicians who  don't do anything; politicians.  Litterers.  Having to rush your, guests  through supper so they can  catch the 8:20 ferry; chain saws  on Sunday; earwigs.  Canada Post; having to pay  for a post box when other people get door to door delivery for  free.  By-laws that are never enforced; the price of gas in  Canada compared to the US;  the price of milk in Canada  compared to the US.  The B.C. Department , of  Forests and Lands; bureaucracy; exploitation of the environment; powdery mildew;  horsetails; septic tanks.  Things that break down one  day after the warranty is up;  'Krazy Krazy' commercials;  junk mail; the price of green  onions.  The noon on Saturday  deadline for this column...  otherwise I could think of lots  more.  ff  THANKS TO ^  THRIFTY'S  Tues-Sat 10-4  \    above Ken's Lucky Dollar  Drop off your  COAST NEWS  CLASSIFIEDS  at  The Coast News  Sechelt  "A Friendly People Place"  [ s /-\  TOURIST AND RECREATION GUIDE  ;    ,.."/���  ' '  ill-  ','    111?  ���yV  ��;  COZY UP WITH A BOOK!  ��� Craft Books ��� Woodworking ��� Cookbooks  ��� '88 Calendars ��� Cards ��� Gift Wrap  TALEWIND BOOKS=  5693 Cowrie Street   Sechelt  885-2527  Browse A Local Art Gallery  see Local Artists!

They're  looking for 1200 word maximum fiction or non-fiction entries from Sunshine Coast  residents, and first prize is $100  and publication in 'The Sun-  coaster' magazine.  LIBRARY VOLUNTEERS  Yes, the library still needs  volunteers, and no, it isn't a  tough commitment. You'll be  required to work a minimum of  two flexible hours a month.  Chairwomen, Blanche Perreca  thanks all the volunteers who  are helping so much in getting  the new facility organized, and  says another work party will be  scheduled at the next meeting.  NEW TITLES  The library recently purchased thirty new books, many of  which are on Native history and  culture. This fascinating area is  a personal interest of mine, and  I recommend that you check  out these excellent new aquisi-  tions.  DONATIONS  About one hundred books  were donated to our newly-  relocated library, and more are  welcome. If you have unwanted  novels or texts gathering dust  and taking space, why not let  the community enjoy them?  The library only requires that  they be in good condition, and  any titles but Reader's Digest  Condensed Books are appreciated.  CALL ME  Finally, if you have any news  that you'd like your community  to know about, give me a call at  883-9302 (weekday afternoons  are best). After the postal strike  ends, you can also drop me a  note at RR 1, in Madeira Park.

Now campers and  vehicles towing boats I know  are going to the marina or  resort, but the cars, vans,  motorcycles and trucks of all  descriptions from pickups to  know what a lumber, cement,  gravel or logging truck looks  like. It's all those other loads of  strange freight.  Our little school is still boarded up. What can I say? Don't  give up, maybe next year.  In the meantime Russell has  his private playground where he  can keep watch on the com-  Congratulations, Nikki  by Ruth Forrester, 885-2418  The happiest Halfmoon Bay  happening to report ithis week is  the goocl news that Nikki Weber  has been chosen 'Citizen of the  Year'.  I know that many of you out  there have been nominating her  for several years and will be  glad that it finally happened. I  can't think of a more worthy  recipient for this honour.  I did notice however, that the  night planned for the dinner is  the same date as the Welcome  Beach Community Harvest dinner and dance. Maybe something will be done about that.  Anyway Nikki - love and  congratulations from all of us in  Halfmoon Bay, especially the  Hams.  SUDDEN DEATH  Many people were wondering  why the hovercraft was in Halfmoon Bay on Thursday. Well it  was on a sad mission from  Thormanby Island where  Clarence Joe of Sechelt had  suddenly collapsed while on a  hunting trip with relatives.  Our sympathies go out to his  family and many friends.  BIKES ANYONE?  The Welcome Beach Play  School is in need of some little  kids' tricycles. For some 15 kids  there are only two bikes. If your  wee one is now too big for his  bike you could maybe pass it on  for the pleasure of others.  If the price is reasonable the  Play School will buy them, or it  would be even better if you  cared to donate.  BROWNIES  If anyone would like to lend a  hand with the Halfmoon Bay  Brownie pack please give Liz  Wright a call at 885-9897. This  is a fun thing to do.  OBSCENITIES?  A wee snippet from a Scottish  newspaper I recently received.  It seems that during the last  election the police received  phone calls with complaints that  obscenities were being shouted  through a loudspeaker driving  through the streets. Investigation found that the speaker was  calling -'Vote Buchati Labour  -Vote Buchan Labour!  Tale of a Sea-Going Granny  Memories of France  by Shirley Hall  MoulVs masts were down and  secured on top of the wheel-  house. Lefty found a piece of  do welling and, lashing it in  place, announced it would serve  as a flagpole. We still could fly  our courtesy French tricolour.  With tires all around our top-  sides and padding on the masthead lights, we were ready for  the Seine's bridges and locks.  We could now moor at Rouen's  Port de Plaisance. It is on an  island between two bridges and  within a few hundred yards of  Rouen's most historic sites.  Here Mouli had a close call. I  was alone on board when some  idiotic young Frenchman who  had come down from Paris,  tried to moot his twelve-meter  yacht in a ten-meter space. He  came down the river towards us  and, since he had absolutely  nowhere that his crew could tie  off his stern, the river's strong  current was  forcing his bow  against us. It took all my  strength to fend him off, all the  time telling him what I thought  of him and his yacht. It is as  well he couldn't understand  English.  The rest is wonderful memories of a beautiful and historic city. We explored the memorial to  Joan of Arc and the chapel  built in honour of the Majd of  Orleans. The flower market is  held at the place she was burned. We walked along the Rue de  la Grosse Horlege. Here, built  into an arch over the road, is a  clock with sunray dials and a  globe above that tells the phases  of the moon. Lefty, who spoke  little or no more French than I  did, in other words practically  none, proved not for the last  time, his resourcefulness and  ability to communicate. He  found some construction  workers and from them learned  where he could buy a secondhand  mallet,   which  he  bore  triumphantly back to the boat.  We'd need it later for driving  stakes into the canal banks.  Most of all we remember  Rouen for Bastille Day, July 14.  We dressed Mouli with her  signal flags, in honour of the  occasion. We'd known in England that we'd be in France for  her national celebration and  bought a set. She looked festive  with her flags flying, even  though her masts were down.  Madame, who was in charge of  the port, beamed with pleasure.  In the evening there was a  huge fireworks display. Margaret and Lefty found themselves  unable to get across the bridge  until after midnight. We felt  concerned about Lefty, who  seemed terribly tired. Later, we  were to learn he was ill.  The present found us removing the flags and bracing ourselves  for  proceeding upriver  and into our first lock.  To be continued...  ilano  ADULT  HIGH SCHOOL  UPGRADING  Miss out on high school?

Do you get those moments, you parents out there when your personal stupendous ignorance boggles your mind? "Well - er  -somewhere in Europe." I tried to sound as though I knew exactly  where that somewhere was but I'd have had a better chance of blind  foldedly pinning a tail on the correct part of the donkey than of pinpointing Bulgaria. I really felt that I couldn't keep up the pretence so  we examined the atlas. How could I possibly not know where Stara  Tagora was all my life. What a wonderful name. I was especially  pleased some days later to find a Bulgarian recipe - seemed like it  was meant to be - perhaps it was written in the Staras!

Heat the oil and cook the onions at medium heat until soft.  2. Add rice and green pepper and stir for a further three minutes.  Add seasonings.  3. Oil a casserole dish lightly and place rice and tomatoes in alternating layers. Cover and cook at 375��F. for 30 minutes.  4. Beat up eggs and yogurt. Pour over rice and return to oven for 20  minutes or until top is gently browned.  If you wish to put a layer of salami in the dish that's good too. Do it  before pouring the yogurt on though! Even kids who hate onions enjoy this!  NEST LEWIS  ��ei#^ 14.  Coast News, October 5,1987  : Blues legend Long John Baldry entertains on the Coast this week.

(Bunny) Wright, now a successful  novelist and mystery writer. We  return to the tent for this one.  Bunny Wright is yet another  of Jan de Bruyn's former  students and he gives her an  amusing introduction. Bunny, a  personable, well-groomed lady  in her middle years, began  writing at the age. of twelve. She  got her initial education in  Soest, West Germany and later  attended UBC, the University  of Calgary, Carleton University  and the Banff School of Fine  Arts.  Bunny worked as a newspaperwoman for many years and  dabbled at more serious writing  in her spare time. In 1978, her  first novel, Neighbours (MacMillan) won the Search for a  New Alberta Novelist Award.  Subsequent books include The  Favorite (Doubleday 1982);  Among Friends (Doubleday  1984); and Sleep While I Sing.  Bunny has been visiting the  Sunshine Coast for many years  and her 1985 book The Suspect  (Viking Penguin/Doubleday), is  set in Sechelt. A murder  mystery, it subsequently won  the Edgar Allan Poe Best Novel  Award. ("I didn't begin it as a  detective story", Bunny confides, "but that is the way it  turned out.") "r ������  Bunny goes on to read several  excerpts from her works including a couple from her first  book Neighbours, which deals  with a woman's mental disintegration. The second of these is  exceptionally powerful.  The Suspect concerns murder  among the very old and Bunny  reads a couple of strong segments from this book.  She makes several allusions to  her upcoming novel Love in the  Temperate Zone which is set in  Vancouver, but declines to give  away any details of the plot.  All in all, it is another  engrossing couple of hours and  the crowd does not stint in its  show of appreciation.  Terri has to get back to Vancouver and the final event is in  other hands so we say our goodbyes and take our leave of the  festival at this point.  In retrospect, it was one of  the most enjoyable weekends I  have spent in a long while. I do  have one minor quibble regarding Chris Bruyere's important  talk which I think, should have  been slotted later in the day.  Apart from this small carp, I  would deem the whole festival  another unqualified success.  Kudos, as usual, must go to  Betty Keller and all the other  people who dedicated their time  and effort to making the whole  thing possible.

October 5.1987  The Giannakos family is offering a  ^Thanksgiving Special*  I  ���&?>���  h  I'M  by Montague Royal  All actors are, in a sense, the  puppets of writers, bringing to  life the characters that formerly  lived only in books and scripts;  mouthing words that once lay  flat on a printed page. Some actors however, are privileged to  wear both hats, to be as adept at  pounding a typewriter as they  are at treading the boards.  David Niven, Dirk Bogard,  Noel Coward and Shirley  MacLaine are good cases in  point.  I must now add to this list,  the late Jack Hawkins. His  autobiography Anything For A  Quiet Life (Elm Tree Books) is a  marvellously honest and moving document of one man's life  in theatre and films and of his  eventual struggle against insuperable odds.  Jack Hawkins, like Alec  Guiness, Laurence Olivier and  his many other gifted English  contemporaries, was literally  born to act. He started out in  amateur productions when he  was 12 and, by the time he was  13, was cast as the page in  Shaw's original staging of St.  Joan with noted actress, Sybil  Thorndike. In these early years  of his career, Hawkins was part  of a troupe run by three eccentric sisters named the Contis,  who specialized in training and  managing child actors.  Hawkins was mature looking  for his age and, by the time he  was 18, had graduated from  juvenile parts to playing young  leading men. At this point in his  life, he came to the United  States for the first time with a  play called Journey's End.  Hawkins' film career began  when he returned to England.  In 1932, he starred in one of  Alfred Hitchcock's first mystery  epics The Lodger. Shortly after  this, Hawkins met actress  Jessica Tandy, whom he subsequently married. The union  produced one daughter, Susan.  While stardom eluded Jack  Hawkins in the years prior to  World War II, he managed to  work steadily in a series of  forgettable films and continued  his stagework, playing everything   from   Shakespeare   to  farce. When war came, his wife  and   daughter   sailed   for  America, where she had been  offered   an   important   part.  Hawkins stayed in England and  subsequently joined the Navy  where   he   was   assigned   to  Special Services. He spent most  of the war organizing shows in  India and other exotic spots.  Here he met Doreen Lawrence,  the beautiful actress who would  become his second wife.  Hawkins returned to England  after the war and resumed his  career. He made a series of fine  films such as The Fallen Idol  with Ralph Richardson, but it  was not until The Cruel Sea in  1952, that he attained true star  status.  Jack Hawkins went on to  give excellent performances in  such films as Bridge On The  River Kwai and Lawrence of  Arabia. Fate however, had a  cruel trick up - its sleeve.  Hawkins had suffered from  minor throat problems for most  of his life. In the mid-1960's,  the condition suddenly worsened and was diagnosed as cancer.  The only possible treatment was  a laryngectomy. The operation  robbed Jack Hawkins forever  of his normal voice.  It was a horrifying blow, for  anyone, particularly an actor,  but Jack Hawkins bravely  soldiered on. He continued to  act although his voice now had  to be dubbed by other men. In  1973, Hawkins learned of a new  process involving the implant of  an artificial larynx, by which his  voice might be restored. He flew  to New York and had the  operation.  Tragically, the larynx implant  was not a success. Serious complications developed andseveral  months later, Jack Hawkins  died. The book closes with a  moving   post-script   by   the  actor's   wife,   describing   the  heartbreak of his final days.  Anything For A Quiet Life is  a tribute to Jack Hawkins'  writing talent, his rare good  humour and his ultimate  bravery.

Coast News, October 5,1987  Rugby news  Both Gibsons  teams winners  by Jay Pomfret  Rob D'Newf, Gibsons Rugby  Club's new acquirement from  the east coast, went on a scoring  spree last Saturday.  ; The rugged inside centre  brawled his way over the Vancouver Trojan goal line three  times helping Gibsons' 4th Division squad to their first victory  of the year. Also scoring for the  Piggies (back from the sandpit),  was Big John Dippy.  Mike Gibson managed two  converts of the four tries helping rack up the 20-14 final.  Gibsons' 3rd Division side  also met up with the Trojans  preceding the 4th Division  game.  After last week's blow-out  against the Ex Brits, the Blue  Pack locked horns with a much  stronger opposition.  All rucks, sets, and lineouts  appeared even throughout most  of the match so ball possession  in the back 3-line was also split.  Gibsons, however, moved the  ball when opportunities arrived.  The first try of the game was  scored by fullback Dave Rainer.  Rainer slipped into his attacking  3-line adding the extra man  which proved one too many as  he dove for the corner flag.  Half time score was 4-0 after  a missed convert attempt by  Rainer.  The dark blue eastside boys  fought hard but eventually  started to wilt during second  half play. Gibsons' unsung  heroes, Mel Dempster, Brent  Lineker, the Gill and crew  poured the intensity on, pounding away the Trojan attack.  Mid-way through the half  Jamie Gill linked once again  with scrum half John Rainer in  much the same fashion as last  week's score.  This time Rainer carried in  close from the eighth man pick  up pass and then returned to the  driving number 8 who scored  not far from the posts.  Not long after winger Neils  Payne picked up a pass and  hammered in yet another score  to finish the Trojans off 12-0.  Next week it's off to town for  both teams.  Once again the Pigs need  bodies so if anyone would care  to try a half come on out  Tuesdays at Hackett Park in  Sechelt and Thursdays at Elphie  field.  Both practiceSjStart.at 6 pm.

Shirley Dumma was closest to the pin on  hole number three and Jim  Menzies was closest to the pin  on hole number 6. Our heartiest  congratulations to all the winners. Mixed Twilight is every  Monday afternoon starting at 3  pm until further notice.  The Senior Men had a win-  dup and free luncheon using up  the extra money they had on  hand. They even had enough .  money to enable everyone to get  a prize. There was a good turnout with 28 attending including Bill Bell and Pete  Wilson from Pitt Meadows and  from the Sunshine Coast Club;  John Petula, Joe Mellis, Frank  Taber, Bill Gibbons and Gord  Dixon. Great to see all of you.  Joe Mellis was unable to play  due to a hand injury but he very  kindly gave support by doing  some spotting for the men (not  to mention heckling). Joe was  presented with a special ball for  his efforts.  There were some excellent  scores but the best of the lot was  John Willcock who came in  with the lowest gross score of  41! Great going John! The  event of the day was 'Blind  Partners' and first prize went to  the team of Murrell Smith and  Al Wendland who won a shirt  each.  Second prize went to the team  of Bruce Patrick and Wilf  Crowe, who won a golf glove  each and third prize went to the  team of Frank Taber and Al  Solomon who won three balls  each.  Closest to the pin on hole  number three went to Jim Buntain and on hole number six to  Tom Held, who won a pair of  sox each. Everyone else won a  ball. Congratulations to all the  guys!  A lovely luncheon was put on  by Moni Langham with helpers  Lil Abbott and Louise McKay.  Jim Buntain would like all  the senior men to know that he  is continuing Senior Men's play  every Tuesday morning until  further notice and this coming  Tuesday will be a competition  with the Sunshine Coast Seniors  so Jim hopes as many as possible will turn out!

It leaves behind a world of  confusion in the market place.  Instead of being an organized,  sane, scientific changeover, it  developed into a political tug-  of-war, marking little or no  sense. Half of our perceived  world is metric, the other half  stuck in avoir, for example,  neutral...or reverse.  Our merchants are caught in  the middle. They spent millions  on conversions, following the  order of the day: Metric will be  the law. Some older people  resisted, found it difficult to  comprehend, but today's children are growing up with the  new system, finding it better  and easier to understand.  Dual advertising and  weighing add considerably to  the disconcerting disorder in the  business community.  However, and fortunately,  first class electronic scales and  cash registers ease the siutation  somewhat,  being designed to  give reasonable protection to  customers unable to translate  pounds into kilograms and vice  versa on the spur of a moment.  Scales have existed almost as  long as the wheel, many a century. They were probably invented by accident - or necessity-  A   wooden   stick   balanced  across a dried out branch with a  basket suspended from each  end, using stones as counterweight, may have originated the  fact that to this day a 140 pound  person in England weighs 10  'stones'.  The simple balance is a highly  accurate weighing implement.  With a ratio of 1:1 it needs the  exact equivalent at both ends of  the beam to balance it. In low  capacities it does a first class  job. Larger scales use the same  principle, however, levers of  different lengths increase  capacities, at the same time  reducing counterweights to  manageable proportions.  Scale applications are endless  and would fill a book.  But our average consumer  only knows the scales he comes  1665 Seaview  Gibsons  *' D.A.

And justifiably so, because  scales have never been more accurate and 'honest'. Powered  by electronics, they sense the  weight on the platform, pricing  it simultaneously, provided the  right price per pound or  kilogram has been punched by  the operator. The scale is a computer and depends upon  humans to be programmed.  Know your prices per  kilogram or per pound. They  must show on the scale display  before it can handle random  weight pricing. Some scales being 'pushbutton convertible'  may confuse operator and  customer alike. Kilogram price  could be charged per pound and  vice versa. The latter favouring  the customer by about 20 percent of course.  Know your prices, especially  for random weight commodities. "What you weigh is what  you pay."  Gone are the days when the  sales clerk threw an extra piece  of chocolate or a deli slice on  the scale, just to make you feel  good. Today's scales immediately add the cost of those  goodies to the total.  All modern scales have a tare  button. It lets the operator  subtract the weight of a container before the content is  weighed.  If 100 grams of first class coffee cost $2 and the insulated bag  weighs 10 grams, you pay 20  cents for the bag if it is not tared  "A New  Hon. William Vander Zalm, Premier.  British Gofamtnd  Highlights of the Premier's  Commitment to British Columbians  "in the months ahead, as restructuring starts to  work, there's going to be a new government presence  in every corner of our province. Not to duplicate, not  to dominate, not to dictate, but to work with local  leaders to better serve our people and our regions."  "No initiative is more important to retaining and  improving our quality of life in British Columbia  than the re-structuring of government...and the  re-definition of its role. Only then can we begin to  sharpen the focus on our future... and to shape the  kind of British Columbia we want for ourselves  and our families?9  "To be effective... to get the job done... our communities and regions need more than increased  freedom and autonomy... they need tools and  resources?*  "There will be increased regional and community  involvement in identifying problems... in developing  solutions...and in making decisions?9  "Government will become a catalyst that sparks  creativity, drive and energy... and opens up  economic opportunities for people in all corners  of the province?9  "This new drive to take government to the people  ... will not be confined to only economic issues...  important though they are. We intend to apply the  same principles to health care, education, social  services, agriculture, environment, the justice  system, highways and consumer services?9  "People should not have to come to government...  government has to go the people?9  In a speech to the Annual Meeting of the Union of B.C. Municipalities  on September 24th, Premier Vander Zalm outlined his new vision for  British Columbia. A vision that recognizes the special value of groups  and individuals in all regions of the province... their energy and ideas,  their hopes and aspirations for the future.  Utilizing this rich human resource calls for a greater regional  involvement in decision-making...less centralized control, with more  freedom and authority at the local level. This is a cornerstone of the  Premier's vision.  In the months ahead, British Columbians will begin to play a larger  role in setting priorities within their own regions. They'll be aided by  a plan of action that will help turn vision into positive reality... a reality  that will mean increased economic activity and new opportunities  for participation throughout British Columbia.  The plan for regional participation  D We will establish eight development regions in British Columbia, each  consisting of a grouping of regional districts.

They will work with local government and private sector bodies.  ��� We will re-deploy government resources freed up under our re-structuring  program into these regions so that personnel can work directly with the private  sector in new participation initiatives.  ��� We will allocate a sum of $1 million to each of these eight regions to assist in  start-up and ongoing operational development activities.  D We will develop and implement specific, targetted incentives tailored to the  unique requirements of the individual regions. *  The Provincial Government has already taken steps to put this new  approach into effect...and there will be close consultation with local  groups on ways to gain maximum benefit from regional development.

According to law customers  can insist to have packaging  tared off their purchases.  However the average wrappings  weigh only three to five grams  and do not register on a scale  with five gram increments.  Little tubs, heavy bags and  baskets are a different story.  The scale and cash register at  a supermarket checkout work  ���hand in hand'. The register is  programmed to retain the price  of every single article in the  store. Prices for items sold by  weight are computed and displayed on the cash register.  Automatic pricing scales in  the meat market make it possible to buy food according to  size, or up to the amount affordable. A printed ticket shows  price per pound or kilogram,  actual weight and price, tells  when the item was packaged,  plus a neat UPC symbol on a  nicely wrapped product.  A UPC symbol is the group  of black lines of different  thicknesses found on every  package carried by a store. It  represents the Universal Product Code. Store computers all  over the world can read the code  and tell a piece of Swiss cheese  from a pound of liverwurst in  any country or language. The  eye reading the code is under the  counter below the star shaped  opening. The cashier has to  'show' the item code to the  scanner before the cash register  can recognize the item and price  it.  In most countries scales are  closely supervised by a government agency. Periodic inspections insure accuracy and legality of the instrument. In Canada  it is the responsibility of the  Department of Consumer and  Corporate Affairs, Weights and  Measures.  Trained inspectors check that  tolerances are within the law. A  scale failing to meet government  specs is ticketed, making the  owner responsible for getting it  repaired and adjusted.  A government department  actually protecting the peoples  interest. There are not many of  them.  An inspected scale has a  dated sticker on it. Look for it  and check it out next time you  shop.  By the way, all electronic  scales have a built in motion  detector. The platform has to be  absolutely still before a weight  or price is displayed. No thumb  or finger is steady enough to  override the device.  In another 10 years the old  fashioned dial scales will have  disappeared, remaining just a  memory in grandma's  reminiscences. There is no  mechanical wear and tear in an  electronic scale.  Apart from the rare circuit  board failure it should last  forever, protecting our shopping dollar.  Progress in weighing has  made money for merchant and  customer.

Editor:  I have read with amazement  Mr. Buvyer's letter with respect  to animal control in your  September 28 edition. It is hard  to comprehend how Mr. Buvyer  could be so misinformed on this  matter. As animal control is a  very important matter to many  people, please permit me to offer some facts on the matter.  It has always been the  board's stated intention that  animal control will only be implemented after public consent  by referendum. The board has  no intention whatsoever to  unilaterally impose animal control.  The proposal which will be  presented to the public for their  assent on November 21, 1987 is  the product of considerable  deliberation by members of the  public and representatives of all  three local governments. It offers the most efficient and effective means of animal control for  the rural areas that could be  identified.  The companion bylaw does  provide for the collection, confinement and destruction of  dangerous or vicious dogs in accordance with provincial  statutes.  The bylaw emphasizes re-  sponsiblity for animals by  owners through minimal $5  license fees but with higher fines  for animals running at large or  causing nuisance.  The bylaw provides for ticketing of owners who permit  their animals to run at large or  cause disturbance by barking.  The proposal provides a  minimum of random patrols  and emphasizes collection of  problem animals.  As for Mr. Buvyer's statement that animal control constitutes empire building, it is  hard to imagine a less attractive  way to build an empire. The  forthcoming proposal involved  no regional district facilities or  staff. It, instead, utilizes and  enhances the Town of Gibsons  facilities and staff. If that is empire building then it must at  least be conceded that it is so-  f<iMmmm  ' ^pT^^.^ud.wfl^flBflkl wmama%,mammm\mamir~matemY?mm- >M^/||tt jik�� itftflW^^j��s��^%Mg*&��S  warn ������ lmmzmW'to'''^\nw%^MfMkw~W'*&*^? &&!&&��"%'&  Diesel Engine Rebuilding  Industrial Parts  HWy101�� AAA    AA.IA  Madeira Park 883-261 6  ANGLICAN CATHOLIC  CHURCH OF CANADA  ST.

The board will be presenting  to the voters for their assent on  November 21, what it believes  to be the most efficient and effective means of providing  animal control in the rural  areas.

The issues in the Canada Post  - CUPW dispute are important  ones. They involve the fundamentals of social and economic  policy in Canada. Should Canadians have unionized jobs that  pay the modest but acceptable  wages of $13 per hour, or  should they be privatized into  non-union jobs which pay $5 or  $6 per hour?  However the use of strikebreakers is an issue which  transcends the content of the  next collective agreement. This  is the second strike in a row in  which the federal government  has spent enormous sums of  money and made careful preparations to defeat a legal strike  using strikebreakers.  Strikebreaking is immoral, it  provokes violence, and it exacerbates labour disputes. The  federal government is sending a  very dangerous message to the  employers of the country by the  use of strikebreakers in this  dispute. The strikebreaking at  Canada Post must be repudiated and the federal government and Canada Post prevailed upon to stop this ugly practice.  All labour codes in Canada  outlaw professional strikebreaking. Surely it is an inconsistency  that Canada Post or some other  employer can engage in legal  strikebreaking. The buses,  helicopters, private police and  security all amount to a planned, professional attempt to  break a strike and a union.  Fred Wilson  Chair, CPC Labour Committee  Peace films  Editor:  I am writing to invite the  public to the Peace Committee  film night on Monday, October  5 at 7:30 pm in the Roberts  Creek Elementary, School  library.  There will be two short films  shown, A Writer in the Nuclear  Age, a conversation with the  late Canadian writer and peace  activist, Margaret Laurence,  and Nuclear Addiction, which  features Dr. Rosalie Bertell, a  nun .and prominent researcher  . on the effects of low level; radiation. Both these women have a  powerful and important message for anyone concerned with  peace.  There will be a short discussion period and refreshments  following the films, after which  the . regular Peace Committee  meeting will begin. Anyone interested in staying for the  meeting is most welcome.  I am also writing to encourage people to support the  October 'Vote for Peace' pledge  card drive. This is part of the  national Canadian Peace Pledge  Campaign sponsored by peace  groups across Canada and  facilitated by the Canadian  Peace Alliance.  By gathering massive  numbers of peace voter pledges  from coast to coast the 'Vote  for Peace' drive will work to  opose the Cold War rhetoric of  Society  grateful  Editor:  May we express through your  paper the gratitude of the Canadian Cancer Society, BC and  Yukon Division to the people of  the Sunshine Coast. So many  contributed to the success of the  1987 edition of Camp Good-  times that it would be impossible to name them all!  The camp exists for children  with a history of cancer. The  staff, volunteers, and all the  children appreciated the generous support of both residents  and businesses from Gibsons,  Roberts Creek, Wilson Creek  and Sechelt.  Thank you all for helping to  make this camp better than  ever. We look forward to next  year, when even more youngsters will be able to enjoy Camp  Goodtimes.  Lois Youngson  Camp Goodtimes Director  the Defense White Paper and  alert voters to the urgent need  for a strong Canadian policy for  world peace.  The Peace Committee needs  the help of local residents and  groups to make our participation in this campaign a success.

I just heard on CBC Radio  News that Washington has forced the Honda corporation of  Japan to cancel its plans to  build a factory in Vietnam.  Moreover, the US Congress is  trying to discourage any foreign  investment in the Indochinese  nations of Vietnam, Kampuchea (Cambodia), and Laos.  It is hard to believe the extent  to which the United States is  determined to inflict further  pain on these long-suffering  people.  By way of background, remember that the French seized  control of Indochina in the late  1800's and then exploited its  colonies until World War II,  when the invading Japanese  took over. When the Rising Sun  of Japan set in 1945, the French  tried to re-establish control, setting off a bloody war which  lasted until 1954.  Under the terms of the  Geneva Agreement the French  in Vietnam withdrew to the  southern half of the country,  while the Vietnamese forces  moved north of the 17th  parallel. The plan for a national  election in 1956 was destroyed  by US President Eisenhower,  who admitted that the 'communist' leader, Ho Chi Minh,  would have won 80 percent of  the vote in a free election.  Instead, Washington created  NOTICE OF INTENTION TO APPLY FOR A  DISPOSITION OF CROWN LAND  In Land Recording District of New Westminster and situated  at Piper Point in the Sechelt Inlet.

Cronk  August 28, 1987  ���  IT)  CO  OO  fm  u  I  U  a fiction called 'South .Vietnam'  under the rule of its client, Ngo  Dinh Diem. Diem's harsh, dictatorial regime eventually led to  armed resistance which later  coalesced into the National  Liberation Front (NLF).  The NLF rapidly gained  popular support, but when they  were on the verge of overthrowing the Diem regime, the US  began its full-scale invasion  (1965). Only after this massive  military intervention, did the  government of Ho Chi Minh  ('North Vietnam') send a  significant part of its armed  forces to help their compatriots  in the south. By the time that  the Vietnamese drove out the  US and defeated its client  regime, perhaps two million  people had been killed in the  American war. The other countries of Indochina had also suffered hundreds of thousands of  deaths. On top of this horror,  millions had been wounded, the  ecology of the entire region had  been devastated by the toxic  chemical Agent Orange, and the  land was shattered by the largest  bombing campaign in human  history.  Kampuchea then underwent  the nightmare of the Pol Pot  regime, in which hundreds of  thousands of people were  murdered or died from famine.  Vietnam finally drove Pol Pot  out of power, but then it was attacked by China. (Canada and  the US still recognize the forces  of Pol Pot as the legitimate  government of Kampuchea).  After the US 'lost' Indochina  to the Indochinese, it continued  its war by other means.  Washington imposed a trade  embargo and its promise to provide reparations and reconstruction aid (as it had done with  Germany and Japan after WW  II) was ignored. When questioned why his government refused  to help rebuild, President Carter  replied, "the destruction was  mutual". (I was living in  California during most of the  war, and I assure you that no  cities were bombed by the Viet  namese Air Force, nor did the  NLF occupy San Francisco.)  Vietnam is a proud and independent country, but it has  been forced to pay a terrible  price in human terms to defeat  those who tried to impose their  will; the French, the Japanese,  the US, and recently, China.  Decades of war have left Indochina desperately poor. But if  Washington has its way, these  countries will be condemned to  underdevelopment and misery.  The US does not try to  perpetuate poverty in Vietnam  merely out of spite for losing  the war. Rather, it wants to  'punish' Vietnam to discourage  any other country, from taking a  path independent of US econ-  mic and political interests. No  country in the 'free world' can  be allowed to put the interests  of its own people before those  of the United States.  If, for example, a less-developed country like Guatemala  decides to distribute unused  land 'owned' by the United  Fruit Company to hungry peasant farmers, it sets a bad example which the US cannot  tolerate. (Land reform in  Guatemala was reversed by the  1954 CIA coup). Likewise, the  US is determined to insure that  any country which defies its  edicts (as Vietnam did) will  either be destroyed or so  devastated that no one will be  tempted to even try to seek an  independent path toward  development. The current wars  against Nicaragua and Angola  have exactly this purpose.  That's why, a dozen years  after the last American fled  Saigon, the US will not even let  'free market forces', such as  Honda, do anything which  might spur real development in  Vietnam and improve the lives  of its people.  To deliberately increase the  misery of the Indochinese by denying them the chance to rebuild their countries is an act of  international sadism by which  Washington still hopes to 'win'  the war.  Eve Smart exhibit  at Hunter Gallery  A new exhibition entitled  Local Colour will be presented  by the Hunter Gallery, in Lower  Gibsons. This is the premier exhibition of the season. The  show, by local artist, Eve  Smart, features a collection of  unusual interpretations of local  scenes of the Gibsons area  rendered in oil.  This is Eve Smart's third solo  exhibition. Her works have  been  featured by the Hunter  Gallery previously and have  been seen in numerous exhibitions at the Arts Centre in  Sechelt.  Eve is the former president of  the Sunshine Coast Arts Council and is still very active in the  arts scene on the Coast. This exhibition celebrates her love for  her adopted home.  The show runs from October  5 to October 26.

"   -.  by Ten Dawe  This section of Earls Cove  end of Sunshine Coast Highway  is being re-surfaced by Columbia Bitulithic Ltd. using a  radical new Japanese paving  machine.  Brian Warhust of Columbia  Bitulithic told the Coast News  that this is. the first of its kind  ever used in British Columbia.  The heater scarification  method uses the combination of  three separate machines that  melt, rip up, re-mix, and  replace, all in one process, reusing the original material.  The first two machines using  $1500 of propane a day heat up  the pavement. The 'paving'  machine then rips up approximately two inches of the top ,  layer,  re-mixing in chemicals  Gardening notes  by Marguerite  The bright colours of summer  will be beginning to fade, giving  way to. the mellow hues of fall.  Temperatures are about to  change and the much needed  rain for gardens is a day or two  away.  If you have fruit trees, or  evergreen trees or shrubs, they  are most likely showing signs of  stress, and Brian Minter suggests that you get the hose and  soak the ground well for them  to recover from the drought we  have just had.  HELPFUL REMINDERS  Leave runner bean roots in  the ground for valuable  nitrogen.  New fall lawns can still be  planted until around the 10th of  October. Sweep up or rake  leaves for mulching or compost  heap.  Clean the greenhouse in  preparation for tender plants to  survive. Plant flower annuals  outdoors now while the ground  is still warm, candytuft, clarkia,  phlox, pinks, snapdragons,  stocks and verbena.  Keep summer alive by gently  lifting fibrous-rooted begonias  with a decent sized root ball.  Water the soil well first, pot  them into a container that is  slightly larger than the roots.  Cut back the flowering shoots  and water well. They will start  producing new flowers in a matter of weeks.  Gibsons Garden Club  members are getting ready for  their annual fall plant sale next  week and volunteers will be giving Pioneer Park its spring bulb  planting, along with winter pan-  sies.  Sechelt Garden Club holds its  meeting in St. Hilda's Hall, on  October 7 at 7:30 pm. Mr.  Barry Willoughby will be the  speaker. The subject will be  'Wintering Over'. Old and new  members welcome.  Struthers addresses Business Women  by Donnie Wright  The Gibsons Business and  Professional Women's Club  held their monthly dinner  meeting on Thursday, October  1 at Pronto's Restaurant.

April gave an informal talk on the many programs  available and services provided  by Capilano College which are  of benefit particularly to  women on the Sunshine Coast.  Her talk was followed by a  question and answer period and  discussion which was both interesting and informative.

See story below.  ���Teri Dawe photo  New paving technique  lost through age and re-surfaces  the road.  The Japanese - Tai Sei Rotec  machines require little or no  new asphalt, saving on those  costs as well as the great deal of  trucking that would normally be  involved. It is definitely not a  boom for truckers but may well  be the new wave in highway re- \  surfacing if these machines prove cost effective.  During the business of the  meeting it was decided by the  general membership that Mondays would be better for monthly dinner meetings, therefore  the next meeting will be held on  November 2, and all business  and professional women are invited to attend. New members  are always welcome. Interested  persons can call Club President  Georgina Crosby for further information.  Before the meeting was adjourned it was announced that  the B.C. Regional Meeting will  be held on October 25 at the  Casa Martinez, from 10:30 am  to 3:30 pm when the guest  speaker will be RCMP Constable Sharon Woodburn. It  promises to be most interesting  and anyone wishing to attend  should call Muriel Haynes prior  to October 16.  The meeting adjourned shortly before 10 pm and an enjoyable time was had by all.  ^  by Paddy Wales  Editor's Note: While Paddy and  Keith Wales are motoring to  Newfoundland and back, Paddy is sending back her impressions of towns along the way.  Rocky Mountain House isn't  in the Rockies, but on a rise at  the edge of the prairie with the  mountains pale in the distance.  The Alberta air smells good  here, perfumed by clover and  brilliant golden poplars.  The town (locally called  ��� "Rocky") is named for a fur  trading post first built on the  North Saskatchewan River in  1799. On its' site now stands a  national historic park.  The highways leading into  Rocky are dotted with fast-food  joints and franchises, but  downtown on 50th Street are  Alpine Drugs, the Lux Theatre,  the rather ragged Mountview  Hotel, and Henry's Western  Wear - 'Saddlery, Work Clothes  & Shoe Repair'. A baby-blue  water tower tops the town.  There seems to be more pickups than cars.  This week's editorial in The  Mountaineer is in support of the  courageous efforts of O'Chiese  band Chief Theresa Strawberry  in tackling alcoholism personally and within her community.  A big event here is the raising  of a new Kingdom Hall by the  quick build method. Volunteer  carpenters and builders from  neighbouring communities are  working round the clock,  refreshed with meals cooked in  makeshift kitchens under plastic  roofs. An adjacent field is packed with dozens of RV's. They  plan to finish the new hall in  three days!  Rocky's homes include older  bungalows, newer split levels on  orderly streets, at least five  mobile home parks, and at the  western edge of town overlooking the river and with a view of  the foothills, fancy new homes  with double garages.  \ Oil and gas refineries ai^he^i  biggest employers, but Rocky  also services the farming communities and is a base for hunting and other foothills expeditions.  Over 60 clubs and groups offer programs and many volunteer their time for youth sports.  Said one mother proudly, "Everything's oriented to kids. We  have every sport a kid could imagine. Our hockey teams would  blow you away." I believe her.  Many women come to In&estors  for confidential advice about  how to achieve security and  growth for their money.
