 '''���''��� : - ��� ':''L:^'^-^^^^^^^9^^^M^^^^&LIK::-  Hormones tested  The last cabin on the Tetrahedron Ski Club's cabin and trail project  was set up last week on Mount Steele. This cabin is located about  4000 feet up and is the one of four that have been put in place along  the Tannis Lake Trail system. ���Brad Benson photo  Foreshore Advisory Task Force  Takes project proposal to Sechelt  The vote was unanimous at  last week's meeting of the  Foreshore Advisory Task Force  to "approve the revised July 8  proposal for the Sechelt Inlet  Coastal Strategy Pilot Project  by Catherine Berris and  Associates subject to consultation with and approval by the  District Municipality of  Sechelt." The decision came  after extensive discussion about  the proposal itself and consultation with other concerned  government bodies.  Chairman Gordon Wilson  explained to the task force that,  while the Sechelt Indian District  was being kept informed about  discussions relating to the  foreshore on the Sunshine  Coast, outstanding land claims  by the band make it impossible  for them to participate on the  Foreshore Task Force without  appearing to weaken their  claims.  However, regarding the  District Municipality, he stated,  "Participation by Sechelt is  essential, and I will be actively  pursuing that in the next few  weeks." In fact, Wilson met  with mayor Bud Koch that same  afternoon and arranged to  make a presentation to Sechelt  Council on August 12, when  council members will have the  opportunity to discuss and  question the Berris proposal.  In a conversation with the  Coast News last week, Koch  said that a decision would be  made that night on the extent, if  any, of Sechelt's participation  in the study.  In the revised proposal, Berris will take the information  gathered in the Coastal  Resource Identification Study  (CRIS), in which she assisted  the Ministry of Forests and  Lands, combine it with information which she will gather on  existing upland use, analyze the  data, and reproduce it on easily  understood maps which will  enable planners to identify varying degrees of user conflict. She  will also support possible  strategies and point out areas  that need more study.  Newly appointed Task Force  member, Diana Davidson,  questioned the accuracy of the  resulting data base. She pointed  out that there had been no input  to CRIS from residents of  Tuwanek or Sandy Hook, and  Berris confirmed that the only  input from Sechelt had been  from Planner Rob Buchan.  "My concern," said Davidson, "would be that if you get  graphs and maps based on an  inaccurate data base, you will  never get them based on an accurate base." She suggested using the seed money available for  the project to update CRIS.  Gordon Wilson expressed  surprise that these groups had  not been consulted and suggested that Sechelt might be  willing to play the role of coordinating this data.  "Sechelt Council is in a state  of intense creativity in developing their view of the Inlet," said  Davidson, and urged the task  force to take this vision and that  of the residents into consideration.  Task Force members agreed,  but emphasized that this phase  of the project is just a start.  Regarding the awarding of  the contract, Wilson pointed  out that it is Sunshine Coast  Regional District (SCRD) policy  that any contracts of $15,000 or  greater go to public tender.  However, he suggested the task  force send a formal request to  the SCRD that thev waive this  ^policy in this case only;  The reasons for the request  were threefold, he explained:  1) Nobody on SCRD planning staff has the expertise to do  what is planned;  2) Planning staff would be  unable to do the work within  the time frame required; and  3) Because of their previous  involvement with CRIS, Berris  and Associates already have intimate knowledge of the data.  : Before the issue was debated,  SCRD Chairman Jim Gurney,  who was at the meeting as a  spectator, rose and stated that  such a request was not  necessary.  Sechelt referendum soon  Referendum day is drawing  near and Sechelt's Downtown  Revitalization Committee is op-  tomistic that the Specified Area  by-law drafted by council will  receive 'approval in principal'  from area property owners.  Passing of the by-law will  enable the communtiy to borrow funds from the province for  further development and refinement of the conceptual designs  for Cowrie and Wharf Streets.  Funds will also be made  available for construction of the  Revitalization Scheme when  design is complete.  The positive effects of  revitalization have touched  communities throughout B.C.  including Sechelt's neighbour,  Lower Gibsons. In Langley,  Duncan and North Vancouver's  Edgemont Village, the benefits  of revitalization included increases in sales in their first  years of 10 percent, 15 percent  and 20 percent respectively. In  addition, all retail store vacancies were eliminated in these  downtowns, thus realizing a  marked increase in the value of  all properties both in the  specified areas and in the communities at large.  Following approval, the  municipality will be looking to  merchants, tenants and property owners to help 'fine-tune' the  design^  Bill Bailey, chairman of  Sechelt's Downtown Revitalization Committee, feels "confi  dent that, with community input following by-law approval,  revitalization of the village will  make all of Sechelt proud."  Conceptual drawings of the  proposed revitalization will be  on display at Marshal Wells until August 10.  Casino robbed  The theft of $20,000 worth of chips from the casino above  Gramma's Pub last Friday, resulted in a large loss of revenue  for the Sea Cavalcade.  Chris Danroth, owner of Gramma's, told the Coast News  that the casino was being run entirely by volunteers and all  profit was to be donated to help underwrite the costs of the  festival. Although $600 to $700 was raised on Friday, that is  only a small percentage of what was anticipated for Saturday  night's receipts.  With the chips stolen, the.casino was kept closed on Saturday night.  Parade prizes  Commercial Float: 1st, Cedars Pub; 2nd, Henry's Bakery;  3rd,Slipper Company.

The experimental use of hormones in fish farming on the  Sunshine Coast raised some  questions at last week's meeting  of the Foreshore Advisory Task  Force. Chairman Gordon Wilson told members that he had  received information that approximately five research  licences have been issued under  the Department of Fisheries and  Ocean (DFO) for this area.  According to the information  he had received, Wilson said a  procedure of dipping fish into a  hormonal solution was being  used, and fish feed treated with  another hormone was later  given to the fish. He questioned  what guidelines were established  for the disposal of waste water  containing the hormone solution, and if the fish were being  marketed for human consumption without indicative labelling.  The Coast News contacted  Igor Solar, a salmonid reproduction biologist with the  Fisheries Research Branch of  Fisheries and Oceans, who  stated that there are, in fact, 17  private hatcheries on the Sunshine Coast which are testing  sex control compounds and  techniques under the supervision of his department. In the  Sechelt Inlet only two licences  have been issued, one to  Aquarius Seafarms and one to  Sechelt United Hatchery.  Solar said the DFO supervises  these pilot studies, and provides  workshops, studies and visitations to those employees handling the experimental fish.  Procedures which are recommended to the companies include the wearing of gloves,  masks and coveralls for  operators who are handling the  compounds.  Treatment water, about 60 tq  200 litres of hatching water con-  7|i?tfMP��; hormones j > should Jje.  disposed of by draining into the  ground   where   it   can   be  (thoroughly   filtered   before  reaching any ground water.  When asked whether or not  the DFO was testing water surr  rounding the experiment sites to  determine that there was no  contamination, Solar replied  that no such testing had been  done so far, but if residents  were concerned he would have  test samples taken, "to put people's minds at ease." 7-  Solar is certain there is no  fear of pollution or contamination as long as recommended  procedures are followed, and  maintained that the quantities  of methyltestosterone and estradiol 17B which are used, are so  minute that "once diluted in the  tank, the concentrations are so  low they are non-detectable."7  So far, he said, no fish from  the experimental batches are of  marketable size. When they are,  the company has signed a contract which states, "The company shall not sell, assign or encumber any salmonids at any  stage of their development  without the prior written approval of Her Majesty."  However, there is little concern if they are marketed, he  said. Test samples done on hormone treated fish and untreated  fish at the time of normal  marketing shows the experimental fish have hormone levels 300  times lower than those in other  fish. This, he explained, is  because fish are generally  marketed at the time they are  normally going into maturation, and are therefore loaded  with hormones.  Fish which have received 'sex  control' treatment are infertile  and therefore don't develop the  normal hormone levels. Hatchl-  ings are the only fish treated  with estrogen, he said, and by  the time any of the experimental  fish go into sea water, they have  not had any hormone treatment  for several weeks and sometimes months.  Master of Ceremonies, Bruno Gerussi escorts this year's winner of  the Golden Girl Award, Norah (Noni) Hill to the stage. The award  was presented by Pat Tripp from the Coast News who sponsored  the event. Letters nominating Noni for the title spoke glowingly of  her long years of volunteer work for many community organizations. ���Ken Collins photo Coast News, August 3,1987  gets results  The political apathy of residents of the Sunshine Coast  that was glaringly apparent in the last municipal elections  is being replaced by intelligent, well-organized political action and the results are already becoming apparent. The  Ratepayers Association of Tuwanek has recently effected a  major change in the final draft of the Sechelt Official  Community Plan which makes it compatible with their vision for the Sechelt Inlet.  The picture of a recreational paradise vastly superior to  Whistler, drawing in millions of tourist dollars while locals  luxuriate in what they've built, seems to have inspired  Sechelt Council. Much of the credit for their shift of focus  from aquaculture, gravel extraction and the forest industry  must be given to Mark Battersby and Diana Davidson.  These two members of the Ratepayers Association  presented a well choreographed, thoroughly researched,  analysis of the problems in and potential of the Sechelt Inlet which no responsible governing body could ignore.  At that point they could have congratulated themselves  with a job well done and retired into local obscurity. Instead, the association requested representation on the  Foreshore Advisory Task Force and last week Diana  Davidson was appointed to that position.  If this attitude of concerned involvement is contagious,  next November's elections could see the Sunshine Coast  operating as a well-functioning democracy where the  elected officials accurately reflected the people's attitudes  and desires.  Sea Cavalcade  great success  Sea Cavalcade organizers and people living in this area  are to be congratulated on a roaring success last weekend.  The time, effort and creative genius that was evident in the  floats and costumes in Saturday's parade made it one of  the best ever.  It was great to see four families get together and enter  the 'Save the Seagulls' float. One member of the team,  Robert Woods told us that he hopes to see more families  participating next year, just for the fun of it.  It is this kind of enthusiastic entertainment which  residents and tourists love, which doesn't need to be  studied, and requires no government funding, that brings  more and more people to the Sunshine Coast.  Who would have thought that economic development  could be so much fun?  5 YEARS AGO  The Village of Gibsons is putting itself on the map by  developing a reputation as a forerunner in the field of  Micro-Computer Programming for use by municipal  governments.  The Sunshine Coast Arts Centre in Sechelt is  celebrating its third birthday, August 6.  Gibsons Council decides to shelve proposed  Gibson's Marina in view of the current economic state  of the country.  10 YEARS AGO  A group of about ten highschoo! students are  presently at work restoring Seaview Cemetery sponsored by a Canada Manpower programme.  At a Gibsons Harbour Business Association meeting,  Richard Parker informed the meeting that an application to turn the old Inglis residence into a  neighbourhood pub had been turned down.  Colleen Jurucz is named Sea Cavalcade Queen for  1977.  20 YEARS AGO  Hopkins Landing holds its annual sports day with the  entire community taking part. The dock was gaily  decorated with pennants and the populace under sunny  skies enjoys the thril! of fishing derby and swimming  races.  30 YEARS AGO  The accident record at Canadian Forest Products,  Port Mellon, is not too good with a total of six accidents  in the first six months. Possible solutions are discussed  at a safety meeting in the cafeteria.  Four hundred people attended a meeting of the West  Sechelt Jalopy Club last Saturday. Many exciting and  diversified races were held including a powder puff.  40 YEARS AGO  Experts blew in the safe of the Union Estates store in  Sechelt last Sunday and escaped with $6,000. The theft  was discovered by store manager E.S. Clayton.  Approximately $100,000 will be invested in a new mill  on Porpoise Bay by B.C. Fir Company Ltd., Sechelt division.

Coast Lines  Nancy's secret longings  by Nancy MacLarty  Each time we check out our  groceries at the supermarket we  are surrounded by temptation.  For those with kids, it's gum  and candy bars. For grown-ups,  it's reading material. You can,  while you wait, browse through  glossy magazines on gourmet  food, little Dell books on  horoscopes or dieting or, the  biggest temptation of all,  newspapers like the National  Enquirer. Headlines promise us  the inside story on everything  from the Royal Family to the  Hell's Angels. Pictures of Oliver  North and Liz Taylor promise  us juicy tidbits on inner pages  and the table of contents teases:  us with items on how we can  become guaranteed millionaires  in just six months. *   CSi>a  It's < hard to pass these by, ���.  After all, when a headline'  reads..."98 Year old nun has  twins!!!" who wouldn't be interested in reading further? But  I resist the temptation, partly  because I'd be embarrassed to  have people think I would spend  my money or time on such bla-  tent exploitation and partly  because I know that when I get  it home I'll probably find the 98  year old nun was just babysitting her great-grand nieces who  happen to be twins. But still...  the temptation persists.  That's where Mrs. Cubbison  comes in. I found her on the  shelf at Shop Easy in Sechelt the  other day. She makes, among  other things, 'Mrs. Cubbison's  Onion and Garlic Croutons'. It  Bills 19 & 20  was a toss up between her and  Brownberrie's products, but  when I saw what was on the  back of Mrs. C's package, I immediately decided on her.  There, complete with picture,  was   'The   Mrs.   Cubbison's  Story'. Who could resist? Once  home, I could hardly wait until  I got my groceries unpacked to  get the lowdown on Mrs. C.  Well,   like  the  National   Enquirer, it was a disappointment.  All I found out was that Mrs.  Cubbison had pioneered several  'popular' products in the early  1900's. Her most notable success, according to the carton,  was her 'Melba Toasted Dressing and Corn Bread Stuffin".  Appetizing but not intriguing.  However, it did give me an idea.  1 am in the midst of writing to  ''several national companies to  ... suggest that they begin to carry.,  "'National   Enquirer'    type  headlines and stories on the  packaging.  That way, people  could without embarrassment  or   guilt,   buy   the   product  because they need it...but still  have the fun of getting the  lowdown on people like Jim  and Tammy or Charles and Di.  I'm explaining in my proposal that this would be a sure  , fire method of upping their  sales. After all, if you had a  choice   between   a   box   of  detergent that just told how  clean it would make your wash  and a similar product with the  headline '107 year old woman  sued for bigamy by teen husband*, which one would you  buy?  debate contin  Imagine milk cartons with exposes on Dolly Parton or  breakfast cereal boxes that tell  you what really happened to  Ronal Reagan's nose!

We  had heard so little from Mr.  Long during the Great Bill 19  Debate that I was beginning to  wonder if the muzzle Vander  Zalm slapped on his followers  during the election was still in  effect.  No one knows when we will  get another chance to glimpse  what goes on inside the head of  our new representative, so I  would like to make the most of  this chance by taking a close  look at what he said.  LONG: Howard White���used this newspaper to utter  numerous half-truths, unsubstantiated statements, innuendo and biased observations.  Comment: Long never substantiated any of these charges  himself, and by bringing up  communism in his finishing  kick he shows he knows what  he's talking about when it  comes to innuendo.  LONG: Mr. White said that  introduction of the 1973 Labour  Code by the NDP meant "even-  handed legislation had come  about, resulting in a sharp drop  in man-hours lost due to  strikes...but where is your  substantiating data?  Comment: In the four years  prior to the Labour Code,  average losses due to work stop  pages were 3.16 million man  days per year. In the four years  after its introduction, losses  dropped 60 percent to 1.85  million man hours. Source:  Department of Labour.  Bill 19 is in many ways a  rerun of the Mediation Commission Act of 1968, which  governed industrial relations  prior to the Labour Code. Jim  Matkin, now B.C.'s chief  management spokesman, wrote  in 1975, "The Mediation Commission acted like a labour  court and as a result political  confrontation increased and the  incidence of strikes increased  also."  The effect of anti-union  government intervention was  tested again, when after four  years of peace under the Labour  Code, the Bennett government  began a new round of confrontational policies such as the  Essential Services Act and the  Compensation Stabilization  Act.  Confrontation this time  around caused workday losses  to soar to an average of 6.2  million man hours over the next  seven years, an increase of 335  percent.  But somehow Harold Long  and his party have looked at this  experience and concluded that  since some of their confronta-  tionist medicine made us sick,  7 more will cure us.  LONG: Mr. White goes on to  say that following the 1973  code, the B.C. average wage  went down in comparison to the  national average, union membership went down, and the  non-union sector grew. But I  must point out that these things  occurred, as he admitted, after  the 1973 code was passed.  Comment: Apparently our  new MLA is not too good at  following a line of reasoning. I  mentioned these facts only to  refute his claim that Bills 19 and  20 were necessary because, as he  told the Powell River News,  June 1, "the unions became too  powerful. We are bringing  things back to the centre."  If unions were really too  powerful, you'd think this  would show up in high wage settlements and union growth, but  B.C. wage increases since 1982  were 37 percent below the national average and the unionized sector shrunk by 13.8 percent. Source: Department of  Labour.  The truth is, B.C.'s  workforce and its organizations  are already in retreat on all  fronts, but Long and his boss  seem to want to turn the retreat  into a rout.  LONG: Since the 1973 NDP  legislation was enacted this province has been wracked by  several general strikes along  with lengthy job actions in virtually every sector of the  economy.  Comment: By far the worst  of the disputes Long refers to,  like the solidarity walkouts of  1983 (there have only been two  general strikes, the first in 1918  and the second caused by Bill  19), were in direct response to  confrontationist actions by his  own government.  LONG: When the (Labour  Code) was first introduced by'  the NDP, it became the focal;  point of a heated attack by;  many British Columbians.  Comment: So it did, but?  comparing that dispute to this*  one is comparing a flea to an  elephant. There was no generaj*  strike, no boycott, and the^  Socred opposition voted unani~  mously for it in the House.  LONG: Times change, as has"  the world we live in, and:  changes to the code were re-'  quired in recognition of this.  Comment: Yessir, but do the  amusement-park operators and:  small-town car sharks of the"  Socred cabinet know how the'1  world changes?  According to reports in the-  June 22 San Francisco Ex-';  aminer, the most significant;  economic change of the pastV  decade has been that neo-7  conservative governments like  B.C.'s have created a greater-  gap between rich and poor than  at any time since 1929.  Because the rich do not spend :'  their   money   on   consumer  goods, this has bled vitality out;  of the North American economy to the point that Wall  Street is rife with speculation ���'.  another 1929-style stock market i  crash is imminent. i  Changes, like Bill 19, which i  hobble workers fighting for'  their   share   of  the   nation's"  Please turn to page 14 i ������  f''"iT-lfflrfnT^''-'^fffftlffi  Coast News, August 3,1987  3.  Editor:  >  I rarely write letters to the  editor   to   clarify   'mistakes',  however,    I   feel   that   it   is  Necessary   to   write   when   an  editor seems determined to bend  the truth, as has occurred in the  Coast News with respect to the  restructuring question. Since I  have not been correctly quoted  let me state what 1 consider to  be  anti-democratic about  the  restructuring process.  { The first problem is the name  'Restructuring Study'. This is  misleading. Normally, a study is  4 two stage process: 1) Stage 1  -the terms of reference are set,  there is an investigation, and  there is a summary of the findings; and,  ���' 2) Stage 2 - there is debate by  those politicians involved in  Stage 1 as to the benefits and  costs to the community, which  leads to a vote by the politicians  to determine if it will go to  public referendum. However, in  a 'Restructuring Study', a  referendum is an inherent part  of the study from the outset.  Some may say, so what. I  would suggest that if we know  this is to happen, then it is imperative that we question who  will set the terms of reference  and how the referendum will be  conducted.  Let me express my concerns  for each: The terms of reference  - Several questions need to be  made clear. Who is on the  Restructuring Committee?  What interests do they represent? What is the basis upon  which this committee draws the  boundaries of the restructured  a&a?  rThe 'melting-pot' referendum  - % believe that the method of  voting is anti-democratic  because it does not distinguish  between regions and their right  to be restructured or not. This  may best be explained by the  following scenario.  Let us say that the Restructuring Committee decides that  the new boundary of Gibsons  should include Electoral Area F  (ie from Gibsons east to Port  Mellon). The referendum result  would make no distinction between the 2500 population of  Gibsons and the 1700 of Area  F.  In other words, all 1700 of  Area F could vote 'no' to being  included, but be outvoted by the  2500 of Gibsons. I do not  believe this to be fair, in fact, I  believe it is anti-democratic.  My argument, as I stated at  the Regional Board and at a  meeting in Langdale, is not with  Gibsons, but with the provincial  Government who encourages  this unfair process to occur -and  they have good reason. The  larger an incorporated area  becomes, in terms of population, the more the Provincial  Government shifts the tax  burden - highways and policing  are the major costs to be  transferred to the municipality.  Is it any wonder the Provincial  Government is so willing to  hand over $5000 for a 'Restructuring Study'/  In summary, I am concerned  about a restructuring study that  results in an anti-democratic  referendum. It seems to me that  an objective assessment on the  benefits and costs of any  restructuring cannot occur until  there is a fair and equitable process in place.  Brett McGillivray  Berris not bias  ^ditor:  .'* In response to recent articles,  letters and editorials in your  paper regarding my potential involvement with the Sechelt Inlet  Coastal Strategy project, I  would like to clarify several  points.  .1. I am not a member of the  Roreshore Advisory Committee. I have attended recent  rfteetings at the invitation of the  cpmmittee specifically to present and discuss ideas related to  aj strategy for Sechelt Inlet.  ��� The committee list which indicated 'information' next to  my name really meant (although  it- did not say specifically) that I  attended meetings to provide information, not that I am an 'information member' of the committee.  ; 2. I do not have biases about  the future of the Sunshine  Coast. I am truly objective, and  a�� a planner my role is to allow  for appropriate development  which is guided to minimize  negative environmental impacts.  It is interesting to me that apparently both pro-development  and environmental interests  have claimed that I am biased  towards the opposite range of  concerns.  3. Taxpayers are not being  charged a second time for any  information. The proposal put  forth to the Foreshore Advisory  Committee is to analyze and.use  Cystic fibrosis  raffle soon  the information generated in the  CRIS study.  Also,   that   data   was   not  generated by my firm, it was,  produced by the 25 agency and,  interest    groups   which    par*;  ticipated in the CJR.IS study.   ���?;.  4. My firm is always pleased to  competitively bid on projects,"  and our fee structure is the same  whether a project is competitive  or not.  I believe the reasons we were  contacted for this project directly are that: we have experience  and familiarity working on the  Sunshine Coast, we recently  assisted in the CRIS study for  this area, and we are the only  planning consulting firm, as far  as I know, with the same computer mapping system as the  Sunshine Coast Regional  District (SCRD), meaning that  everything we do on the computer is instantly available for  use by the SCRD.  My firm maintains very high  professional and ethical standards. Should there be any suggestion in the future of conflict  of interest or inappropriate  behaviour, I would very much  like to be contacted directly.  I wish the Foreshore Advisory Committee every success  with its ambitious project and  will certainly contribute my utmost should they choose to involve me.  Catherine Berris  Editor:  Once again the campaign to  raise funds for Cystic Fibrosis is  turning out to be very successful.  On behalf of the foundation  and the children I would like to  say thank you to the Coast  News and all their columnists  for their publicity, and to those  who have sent contributions. A  thank you to all those who supported and contributed to Nikki  Weber's Teens '87 concert and  the coin collection containers.  Our raffle, to be drawn in  August, is receiving a lot of support as well and thank you for  that too. Watch for the publication of the winners names.  Researchers are on the brink  of a major break-through and  with this kind of support  hopefully a control or better still  a cure can't be too far down the  road.  Again, to all, many, many  thanks.

MERCURY Coast News, August 3,1987  Annual August picnic  by Larry Grafton  OUR PICNIC  It's not too early to check  ". your calendars and make your  _; plans to attend the Seniors'  7 Branch 69 picnic at Porpoise  - Bay Provincial Park on August  r 13th. Last year we had a good  �� turn-out and a good day was en-  C   joyed by all. This year hopefully  we will exceed last year's total.  Please note:  7   1. You will be contacted by the  :   phoning committee with regard  > to pot-luck food supply.  .   2. You should bring your own  1  dishes and cutlery.  I   3. Coffee will be supplied.  ;  4. The committee requests that  ; you arrive at the park by 11:30  ;  or sooner in order that food will  .'���; be set out for a 12 noon meal.  > 5. For those of you who may  > care to have a passenger from  7 the hall to the park, please  :< check at the hall on your way  y out.  7 6. The last car will leave the hall  > at 11:15 am.  y 7. In the event that you are not  \ contacted by the phoning com-  '���i mittee, please bring some food  '*; of your choice.  I 8. If you choose to bring your  ���* own lawn chairs they have pro-  l ven to be very useful at past pic-  *. nics.  * 9.

BAZAAR  There's no time like these  hazy, lazy days to start thinking  , about making articles for our  big fall bazaar in November.  For those of you ladies who knit  \. and crochet I'm sure'Ellen Berg  ; can arrange the wool supply.  At past bazaars wejtave had  a very scant supply of wooden  articles for our sale which proves one thing - 'our men should  start now in their workshops to  make articles for the sale.'  Maybe this year our wood  carvers will come forth, and  with the expertise being shown  by our oil painters, possibly a  painting or two will be supplied.  John and Patty Miller will  have a display of liquid leaded  glass.  Our annual bazaar is one of  our biggest fund raisers. This  year and next, with our new activity centre now in the final  building plan stage, and construction start-up at least in  sight, our association will have  ready use for additional funds  generated. Let's make our 1987  bazaar the biggest ever!  NEW BUILDING  While on the subject of our  new building it was interesting  to note in the local press that an  overflow crowd attended the  'Wagon Caravan Show'. A  comment was made to the effect  rations  that a 300 seat facility could be  filled here on the Sunshine  Coast.  At all concerts in our present  hall we have had to limit ticket  sales, but when the new hall is  completed, it is understood that  the fire marshall's office has  authorized seating for 315 people. To have such a facility in  Sechelt, available to all branches of arts and theatre, will be  a real boon not onlv to Sechelt  itself, but to the whole of the  Sunshine Coast.

Louise Munro wielded the  champagne to christen Wind-  walker for Ian and Lynne  Munro. Ian's dad, Harry  Munro helped with the final  preparations of Windwalker,  and has now tuned up his  fishing rod for his retirement,  which officially began this  weekend. Congratulations to all  the Munro family!  INFO CENTRE  Jack Heidema reports visitors  from B.C., other provinces, the  US and several European countries at the Pender Harbour Info Centre. Hot off the press is a  new brochure '87 Summer Fun  Things to Do on the Sunshine  Coast', with ideas covering Port  Mellon to Lund.  Some of the ideas from the  Pender Harbour area include  picking your own veggies at  Roosendal Farm, checking out  our beautiful lakes, paddle  boating at Ruby Lake, testing  your golf skills on our challenging nine hole course, and, of  course, reading the local  newspapers!  FORE!  Harbour residents who didn't  know a putter from a hole in the  ground are now golfing enthusiasts on our new course,  which is busy every day, rain or  shine.  Even if you don't golf, read  the reports in the sports section  and see how your friends and  neighbours are doing. There  always seems to be lots going on  at the Clubhouse. The Pro Shop  is open with lots of accessories  and sports clothes, too.  BLESS THIS HOUSE  Dave and Cathy Gibson, with  children Shannon, David and  John, have moved into their  new home overlooking Garden  Bay Lake.  John and Marie Malcolm's  new addition to their waterfront  home has lots of room for  Stuart, Steven and Alison, as  well as more space for Marie's  quilting! Building seems to be  going on all over the Harbour,  either new construction or  general renovation.  NEWS?  If you have some news for  me, please call me at 883-9606.  Between 8 and 10 in the morning is best, or in the evening. I  really am home more during the  summer months, and I need to  know what's happening in  Garden Bay, Irvine's Landing  and Kleindale! I rely on my  readers to keep me informed.  BBQ for Nicaragua  This year's Festival of the  Written Arts salmon barbecue  will take place between 4 and 7  pm on Friday, August 14 and  Saturday, August .15 on the  grounds of Rockwood Lodge in  Sechelt.  Getting enough salmon to  feed the hundreds of people expected at the barbecue was quite  a chore but the UFAWU,  through the kind intervention of  Jim Sinclair of The Fisherman  newspaper, has promised fresh  fish, which will be arriving in  Sechelt on the Thursday before.  Local members of the Tools  for Peace committee and the  Sunshine Coast Peace Committee will be manning the  barbecue, making the salads,  ^cooldjrig up the fresh corn on the  cob,   and   making   sure  that  everything runs smoothly.  All the proceeds, after expenses, will then go to the fund  set up by the UFAWU to build  a large commercial fish boat for  Nicaragua. The boat building is  virtually completed, but now  the fund raising to purchase  engines for the vessel is underway and this event should be of  assistance.  As with all volunteer functions, more hands are needed so  if you would like to give a few  hours of your time to help with  the barbecue, if you have  garden-fresh produce you'd like  to donate for the salads, please  call Dianne at 886-2469 or Betty  _at 885-3589. .__....,-   _   P.O.

Gibsons Mayor Diane Strom, Regional District Chairman Jim  Gurney, and Acting Mayor for Sechelt Joyce Kolibas took the opportunity to present the Arts Council  with $15,000 from the Partners in Enterprise funding, which will be used to hire a co-ordinator for all  arts and cultural events on the Sunshine Coast.  ���Penny Fuller photo  Hendrickson lease approved  by Penny Fuller  Although Gibsons Council  voted to recommend approval  of a foreshore lease application  by Walt and Inez Hendrickson  at a special meeting on May 21,  the controversy around the approval continues to plague  council. At the last council  meeting, Joe Hunt again challenged council's rationale in  making the decision.  The problem arose earlier this  year when council received a letter from Larry Sorken of the  Ministry of Forests and Lands,  instructing them to either approve the foreshore lease which  would make Hendrickson's  wharf legal, or arrange to have  the structure removed.  The wharf had been in place,  illegally, for years, and after  much debate council amended  their policy of 'no foreshore  leases' to include: 'except in  recognition and regularization  of existing structures which predate the municipality's recreational foreshore lease'.  Alderman   Bob   Maxwell  -strongly opposed the amend-  r"  886-2425    Tues.-Fri., 10-4  ment, pointing out that the property had recently been listed  for sale, including the water  lease, and that the inclusion of a  foreshore lease with the upland  property vastly increased the  sale value.  He also stated that it was unfair that the Hendricksons had  enjoyed the use of the foreshore  for all those years without paying taxes on it.  Hunt, who is a neighbour of  the Hendricksons, also spoke at  the earlier meetings, claiming  that the wharf was not used for  private moorage and that the  Hendricksons charged people to  moor their boats, making it a  commercial venture.  However, Inez Hendrickson  maintained that any fees charged were only to help with the  upkeep of the wharf. She also  pointed out that her husband is  in a wheelchair and without the  wharf would be unable to have  access to his boat.  Council eventually voted to  recommend approval of a 10  year lease.  At lastweek's meeting, Hunt  repeated his position that council had the authority to approve  a one year tenure, subject to  review, or even approval only as  long as the Hendricksons own  the upland.  In this, he is supported by a  pamphlet   put   out   the   the  ��*>  c \>  .\J^V       In the beauty & elegance  ���     of fine, custom crafted jewelry  COME IN MONDAY, AUG. 1 1  for: All Jewelry Repairs  ��� Remakes - rings, earrings  ��� Remounts - precious & semi precious stones  European jewelry designer and goldsmith, Mr. Kurt  Stoiber. will be here all day Monday, Aug. 11 to  discuss your personal needs in gold jewelry design.

The brochure  outlines the new provincial  government policy on 'using the  foreshore for private moorage',  and clearly states 'the maximum  term for a licence is 10 years.'  While it is perfectly legal to  transfer or assign a lease to someone else, it can only be done  'with permission, of the  ministry'. However, Gibsons  Council put no restrictions on  their recommendation.  In a heated debate with  Mayor Diane Strom, Hunt rejected the mayor's claim that  removal of the structure would  have cost taxpayers money.  "The Town of Gibsons had  nothing to do with installing the  structure," he stated, "They  should not be required to  remove it, the Hendricksons  should. And the taxpayers  shouldn't have, to pay for it, in  my opinion."  Hunt concluded by saying,  "If Gibsons is going to approve  this kind of operation, then I  give up on the majority of Gibsons Council."       .(..'������������  .....Although..it was pointed out ;f������;**  that the matter is settled, Mayorf**  Strom agreed to godown to  Hunt's property the following  and see for herself.

International  hockey  tournament  Local resident John Johnson  (age 72) attended a senior men's  hockey tournament in Santa  Rosa, California during the  week of July 20-26. There were  48 teams in age groups of 40,  45, 50, 55, 60 and 65.  The tournament was organized and to a great extent subsidized by Charles 'Sparky'  Schulz, the creator of 'Charlie  Brown' and 'Snoopy".  Some 750 hockey players  were involved, coming from all  over North America (Canada,  Alaska, USA) and Japan.  It is Schulz's arena, and the  rink itself has an attractive inside decor compared to our  Canadian ones. Mr. Schulz gave  every player a special jacket, a  coffee mug duly inscribed, and  held barbecues (free) which included all the players, wives  and/or girlfriends.  John Johnson played for  'Burbank Skates' who won a  bronze for having lost two and  won two games. He scored two  goals and had three assists.  Scores were 4-3 and 7-2 for  the team and 2-0 and 3-0  against.  This is the fourth year John  has participated since 1979, and  he found the whole affair very  exciting. As a matter of interest  to 'older' men, there were some  80 participants over 65 years of  age. Seniors, please note!  WANTED  Used Furniture  and What Have You  We buy Beer Bottles  886-2812  lb.

A white-sided dolphin is  rather unusual in these parts,  particularly on its own and  coming so close to shore. It appeared however to be in perfect  health.  For those of you who are interested in what happens below  the ocean surface there is a  golden opportunity to find out.  There will be a particularly low  tide on the morning of Sunday,  August 9 and Joop Burgerjon,  who is an expert on aquatic life,  plans to pull a fine mesh  dragnet along the beach to see  what denizens of the deep can  be collected.  Whatever comes up will be a  surprise to we surface dwellers.  This promises to be a most interesting outing and everyone is  welcome to attend the low tide  exploration.  Meet at 10:30 am at the  Burgerjon house on Redrooffs  Road just before the Fawn  Road junction,  coming  from  Sechelt, or you can meet on the  beach below. Very low tides are  of   particular   interest   to  children, so bring the kids along  too.

PRIZE APPRECIATED  Chuck and Peggy Ayers of  Redrooffs were the lucky winners of dinner for two with wine  at the Jolly Roger Inn. This was  Chuck's prize in the wine making contest at the Country Fair.  They reported an excellent  meal, fine service, good wine,  and, in all, a most enjoyable  evening where they were made  feel welcome. So, thanks from  the Country Fair to the Jolly  Roger for this fine prize which  they donated.

Sponsored by Palmer/Pletsch  Associates, the intensive four  day workshop focused on the  machine which is revolutionizing home sewing.  The serger (or overlock  machine) stitches, trims and  overcasts in one step at almost  twice the speed of a conventional sewing machine.  Sue will use her new  knowledge to teach serger  classes locally.  Palmer/Pletsch Associates is  a group of fashion sewing professionals who publish books as  well as designing patterns and  sponsoring sewing seminars.  There are a number of these  books in our library.

I  can't remember a previous year  when there have been ripe berries in July but I went out a couple of evenings ago and picked a  small pailfull.  A couple of weeks ago my  husband and I were walking  along our road and noting how  prolific the berries were. When  he said there were at least ten  different kinds, I said he was exaggerating, so we started counting. Besides the bush blackberries were salmon berries, thimble berries, black raspberries,  Oregon grape, salal, trail  blackberries, huckleberries and  red elderberries. The bears  should fare better this year.  GREETINGS  And now August is here it's  time to bring greetings to many:  Happy birthday to Jason  Haines from Seastar Fish Farm,  now two years old, and Lacee  Goyette, also two. Happy  fourth to Cleo. Legge and sixth  to Lacee's cousin Kathleen, and  Daniel White and to Bryce Hig-  gins.  Other August birthdays include Donna Berntzen, Warne  Clay, Randy Noble, Wanda  Jeffries, Lloyd Carter, Nick  Wallace, Trudy Muller, Iris  Sayers, Brian Campo, Tom  Silvey, Samantha Adamson,  Norma Martin, Jackie Laloge,  Diane Jeffries, and Greg's  sister, Toni.  HAPPY ANNIVERSARY  And anniversary greetings go  to Leah and Al O'Neill and also  to Gene and Vi Berntzen on  their 49th!  CHANGES TO WEEKS REQUIRED  FOR  UNEMPLOYMENT INSURANCE  The unemployment rate in some parts of British Columbia has dropped to 11.5%.  This will affect some people for Unemployment Insurance benefits according to  Employment and Immigration Canada.  This recent change will affect only claimants who reside in two of the six  economic regions in B.C. and Yukon Territory. The two economic regions, are:  - Metro Vancouver and the Lower Fraser Valley including the Regional  Districts of Fraser-Cheam, Dewdney-Alouette Central Fraser Valley,  Sunshine Coast, and Powell River.  -Victoria-Vancouver Island consisting of the. Regional Districts of  Capital,  Cowichan  Valley,  Nanaimo,  Albemi-Clayoquot,  Comox-  Strathcona, and Mount Waddington.  The change, which became effective on Monday, July 20th means that claimants  who have received benefits in their last qualifying period may require additional  weeks of work in order to qualify for benefits on a new subsequent claim.  The qualifying period starts when the worker's last claim started, or up to 52 weeks  ago, whichever period is shorter.  When the unemployment rate drops to 11.5% such claimants, or "repeaters", may  have to work for up to 16 weeks in order to qualify for benefits. For example a  repeater who claimed benefits for 14 weeks is now required to work another 14  weeks to qualify again. Likewise repeaters who claimed 12 weeks are now required  to work 12 weeks for a new claim.  It is important to note, however, that the change does not affect the claims of  seasonal fishermen and that in other regions there is no change in the requirements to qualify for Ul benefits.

Give yourself a chance to  prove that you have achieved  that look that you wish for your  garden.  FRANK READ  Frank Read along with his  wife Nancy, Janet Allen and  Dave Hayward were the founding members of the Sechelt  Garden Club in 1966. Frank  was the first president and  honourary president after that.  Gardening was Frank's hobby and he shared his knowledge  willingly and in such a friendly,  manner that is not chance that  the Sechelt Garden Club progressed as it has.  Frank and Nancy were married in 1937, at that time they  moved to Roberts Creek where  Nancy's father, Fred Paquette  gave them the farm up Lockyer  Road in Roberts Creek.  He served in the Army Artillery and after World War II  worked for a while in the  shipyards in Vancouver.  Frank worked on the first  lines bringing power to the Sunshine Coast by old Columbia  Power, then for B.C. Power  Commission, B.C. Electric, and  finally B.C. Hydro Power  Authority, retiring in 1970.  The family have all stayed on  the Coast, Nancy and Frank in  West Sechelt, daughter Ann and  George Page in Sechelt, another  daughter Susan Chenier in Gibsons and son Stephen and Jean  in Roberts Creek, plus several  grandchildren.  Frank will definitely be missed by his many friends and  especially   relatives   and   gardeners.  SECHELT LIBRARY  A display of the new  children's books at the Sechelt  Library will be on view August  13, Thursday from 10:30 am to  4  pm.   Everyone,   whether  a  member of the library or not is  invited to come and look at the  new books.  A good time to think about  joining and taking advantage of  the other books available.  A large grant of money was  made to the Library Services  Branch for the province with  the stipulation that the money  be used for children's Books.  The allotment was made according to the size of each library  and Sechelt's donation came to  $1000.  Sechelt Library is on Trail  Avenue next to the Shell Station  and is open Tuesday from 10:30  am to 1 pm and on Thursday  and Saturday, 10:30 am to 4  pm.  EARTH MOVING  That is what is happening at  St. Mary's Hospital as the earth  is being moved to make space  for   the   new   extended   care-  building.  Not earth shaking to others  but thanks to physiotherapist  David Kennedy I have now  graduated to using a cane after  nearly six weeks on crutches. It  is good to have two feet.on the  ground. "   .  Traditionally the month for  holidays and merry making,  August, is in fact, one of the  quieter months of the  gardener's year. The production  of new growth has slowed  down, and the process of ripening and maturing is evident.-  One can relax a little and the  ornamental garden can be left  to itself to a large extent, merely  removing deadheads, replacing  supports, and spraying for  mildew. This is a fungus  disease, characterized by a white  ���powdery coating on leaves,  stems, and buds, and at this  time can be a great nuisance on  ornamentals, particularly if the  soil is dry, or the garden stuffy.  A sulpher dusting solution  will restrain its increase. Watch  for it also on apples, roses, and  hedge plants.  Onions will be maturing and  the tops should be bent down to  dry if they are not already doing  it of their own accord.  Herbs can be gathered and  dried this month and stored for  winter use.  Strawberry runners should be  removed as they appear unless  wanted for a fresh bed next  year. Pegging them down  directly into the soil, if it is done  early, seems to produce as good  a plant as the pot grown kind.  The limanthes seed, which is  better known as 'poached eggs'  will be getting brown now, and  can be planted in the garden. Or  try some in a pot. They will  bloom in the spring and give  you some colour with their  yellow and white fluted flowers,  also with your bulbs, when we  need it most after winter.  There's still time for the  garden photo contest. Don't be  shy. There are some lovely  gardens on this Sunshine Coast,  and still some sunny days, so get  out your camera. You don't  have to be an expert. Send to  Gibsons Garden Club, Box 461,  Gibsons. Watch those sunflowers kids, judging after  Labour Day.

Each  member took great pride in  belonging to their canoe clubs.  They saw themselves as  representing the Sechelt people  in a traditional sport which  demanded excellence, not only  as individuals, but also as a  group.  A canoe puller was expected  to train at least six months out  of the year. Many of the  members would dedicate themselves to canoeing and would  train throughout the year, getting up at the break of dawn  when they would do their running to strengthen wind and  stamina.  Abstinence from smoking  and alcohol was also demanded.  If a puller was caught smoking  or consuming alcohol they were  Tale of a  going granny  by Shirley Hall  From Cowes to Poole. This  was a five or six hour run  westward between the island  and the south coast. We sailed  past the Needles, infamous jagged fingers of rock jutting up  from the water off the Isle of  Wight.  The fickle channel weather  changed and we found ourselves  running against the wind. The  opposing tide gave us breakers  that crashed over the bow and  in through the windows. In a  very short time Bill discovered  which of his fixes on Mouli's  leaky windows had not taken.  But we found that Mouli is a  'dry' boat, a very desirable  quality. That is to say she has  no leaky seams or deck.  Arriving at Poole, we came  alongside the quay and there  were many hands to take our  lines. Poole is a historic port  and the quay forms a breakwater and promenade with an  old customs house and other  ancient buildings alongside.  There is both an inner and  outer harbour, both extremely  busy, the latter known as Hole's  Bay. A bridge had to open to  allow the traffic in or out;  Unlike the system to which we  were accustomed of opening the  bridge at least every half hour,  at Poole the openings were three  hours apart.  We sat out on deck and watched the marine traffic building  up to an incredible volume, with  yachts struggling to maintain  their position in line until the  bridge opened. When it did,  there was a parade of downstream traffic that lasted 15  minutes or more, followed by  the upstream boats. In the  meantime, motorists waited for  the bridge to close. It did not  seem a very sensible system to  me.  Lying at Poole we became  convinced that every Englishman who possibly can owns a  yacht. We were completely unfamiliar with the practice of rafting up. On the east coast of the  States it's not done and if you  arrive at a marina that's full it's  your tough luck.  In England rafting up is common. Perhaps I should explain  that this term describes the  practice whereby the first boat  ties up alongside the quay and  boats arriving later tie up  alongside other boats.  At Poole, since it is a  yachting centre, the boats were  frequently rafted five deep. We  talked to people who said that  on bank holiday weekends the  yachts would stretch out to the  edge of the channel.

In  order to get back on the canoe  team an individual had to train  hard and prove that he was  capable of sticking to the strict  discipline required.  Today many of the canoe  clubs around the Lower Mainland, Fraser Valley, Vancouver  Island and Washington still live  by these conditions.  It's a strict, disciplined life  but many young mature people  do it. The ones that break the  training hurt the team and  themselves. Anyone out of  shape becomes a burden to the  rest of the canoe club who have  to carry that person for four  miles. .    , .  But there's no room for a hitchhiker on a canoe.

It  is also a record of the initiative  shown in the earlier days to acquire equipment and to develop  the organization of a fire  department.  From a handcart and reel of  hose in the 1930's, to a four  cylinder pump from the ARP of  the World War II years, to the  beginnings in 1946 of what has  become the present department,  the volunteers have provided  protection and a host of other  services to the community, all at  no charge to taxpayers.  There have never been wages  and in those early years much of  the equipment was paid for by  funds raised with the help of the  Ratepayers Association who  held such events, for instance,  as the annual Firemen's Ball.  The   first   firehall,   still   an  historic mark in Lower Gibsons, was completed for use in  1951. A truck chassis, a 'mere  skeleton' was built into the first  fire truck the same year. All this  by volunteer labour.  "We worked evenings and  Sundays," says John Wilson,  honourary member of the fire  department after 25 years of  service, "to get that hall finished. We had to muck out the dirt  with a scoop and block and  tackle because Alf Ritchey's  D-8 Cat got mired in the mud  on the site from the nine springs  in the hill behind. Eric Inglis'  truck pulled the scoop full of  mud across the road for dumping. Many a rubber boot was  . lost by those of use handling the  scoop."  In the early years "the fire  department was the only  organization people could turn  to for help in emergencies both  great and small.

All this was taken in stride  along with still other activities.  To mention a few there was a  fire prevention and safety training in schools and elsewhere;.^  Halloween patrols to prevent  damage back in the days of  wandering bike gangs; the annual water sports at Armour's  Beach; the War of the Hoses;  the Firefighters Salmon Derby. ;  The only reward for these  volunteers, it seems, is the  satisfaction of working together  for a very worthy and practical  purpose. There are, on the side,  pleasant social occasions of annual dinners and the Smokey  Stover Club which began in  1950.  Melanie Mahlman, Miss Gibsons Fire Department and  Cavalcade Queen in 1978, in a  laudatory essay written that  year, said of the firefighters,  "They are truly a volunteer service, demanding no reward,  putting in much more time than  their training and maintenance  duties require...The public owes  these men a great deal."  ERROR  In last week's Coast News the  phrase '25 year reunion' in the  note under the photo of the fire  department personnel of 1968 is  an error.  The fire department under  Chief Eric Inglis began in 1946, -������  and even before that there was  a form of fire protection in the  mid 1930's and during World  War II years.  A plaque in the firehall lists  these honourary members: John  Wilson 1948-74; A.R. Bob  Wilson 1948-78; Murray Crosby  1963-83; Bill Scott 1953-74.  Cliff Mahlman has no intention  of seeing his name on that plaque just yet. "I'm still an active  firefighter," he said, "the reunion was not a retirement dinner for me."  CARAVAN STAGE  Some folk have expressed  their dissatisfaction with the  Caravan Stage show The Good  Baby. "No entertainment kids  could understand," said one,  and "No entertainment at all,"  said another.  Since this company only does  shows with strong social  themes, we could well have been  informed of this prior to their  arrival.  One wonders how their  Hands Up, the life and times of  our B.C. train robber, Bill  Miner, would have appealed to  us.  This was not entertainment as  we expect it to be with rounded  plot and character development  but it was strong stuff competently done.  The cause of our disgruntle-  ment lies with the local im-  pressarios.  by Ken Collins  Gibsons has been made world  famous by the Beachcombers  and one of the oldest authentic  beachcombers on the Coast,  John Moore has retired his ship  Golden Hair.  The boat was launched in  1964 and was built by John with  the help of a welder. She proudly carried in one of the oldest  log salvage numbers on the  Coast, LS 26.  John, however, was beachcombing long before that, along  with his brother George. They  started in the late forties and used to ply the waters of Burrard  Inlet when there were some 42  sawmills between the first and  second narrows. At that time  John's home base was Mosquito Creek but he used to roam  the Coast from time to time and  knows it like the back of his  hand.  Nowadays John can still be  found sitting by Molly's Reach  or down at the Government  Wharf. He likes to keep an eye  on things and has been credited  with stopping more than one  boat from sinking.  Tourists often approach him  and ask him where they can find  the Beachcombers. He is always  accomodating and points out  where they .can find Bruno  Gerussi and where Relic's shack  is, but for those who have the  time to sit and chat, he is full of  authentic adventures of the real  beachcombers that braved the  waters of the Coast.

' ���Penny Fuller photo  Pages From A Life-Log  Raftcamp  by Peter Trower  t There was no more or less to  cio at Carrington's in our off  hours, than at any other small  isolated camp. The place was  made up of three rafts cabled  together. The large central float  carried the bulk of the camp  buildings: cookhouse, bunk-  houses, washrooms and  workshops. At either end were  two houses on separate floats.  ." One was occupied by old  Harry and Mildred. Big Dan  and Eddie Carrington, both  recently divorced, shared a ramshackle cottage at the opposite  end.  Apart from human beings,  the rafts were inhabited by a  morose Irish setter belonging to  old Harry; four mongrel cats to  keep the rats at bay and a lone  rabbit with delusions of cat-  hood, who scuttled about with  them like a confused country  cousin.  Electricity for the complex  was provided by an ancient  gasoline generator that often  broke down, forcing us to fall  back on naptha lamps.  There were occasional minor  diversions. Once Big Danny's  father, Mitty Le Clair showed  up with his disreputable  storeboat, its interior literally  crammed with cheapjack merchandise - second hand books,  chocolate bars, fly-swatters,  plastic ornaments, children's  toys, tacky items of clothing.  Mitty was a toothless cackling  old reprobate with a broad  French Canadian accent and a  persuasive manner. Danny  seemed faintly embarrassed to  see his wandering parent.  Boredom made us easy marks  for old Mitty's enthusiastic sales  pitch. He talked me into buying  a'$10 sports shirt. It looked to  be of reasonable quality but the  first time I tried to wash it, the  thing shrank to the size of a  hand towel.  Danny happened to be there  when I made this discovery, a  week or so later. "Never trust  camp drummers - especially my  old man!" he laughed.  Occasionally, in the evening,  Danny ran us over to the larger  floatcamp, a few miles away,  where they showed movies twice  a week. We watched grainy old  Jimmy Stewart and Humphrey  Bogart films with breaks between each reel. It reminded me  of boyhood Saturday matinees  in the pulpmill town where I  grew up.  We were working six days a  week. The rest of the time we  wrote letters, washed clothes,  played cards, listened to the  crackly radio, told lies to each  other, ate, slept and stared at  the walls.  The crew began to grow  restless. There was much complaining and arguing over trivial  matters. There was talk of quitting. An air of obscure tension  began to pervade the camp.  Big Danny sensed the discontent and knew the cure for it.  "By God," he said, one drizzling Friday in early October, "I  figure we've earned ourselves a  break, boys. Think I'll shut her  down for a few days. We'll take  a run to Alert Bay. Check out  the hooch and the klootches.  Whattaya say?" .  There were no dissenters.  Alert Bay on Cormorant  Island, was about a three hour  run from Carrington's camp in  Tribune Channel. It sported a  couple of beer parlours, a few  stores and cafes, numerous  bootleggers and a hospital. The  place had grown up around an  existing Indian Reserve with  fishing its chief industry and  boozing its main form of recreation.  The laws of that time permitted Indians to drink in the bars  but forbade them to take liquor  home. A couple of Provincial  Police were stationed in the  village to enforce, among other  things, this discriminatory  regulation.  I hit the Nimpkish Hotel with  the rest of the crew. It was a  typical upcoast pub of the early  50's with no fancy frills, geared  for no-nonsense drinking and  the probability of mayhem. The  waiter was an old burned-out  logger who greeted Big Dan  familiarly and started the  rounds coming at a swift clip.  Soon none of us was feeling any  pain.  I hung in with the rest of  them for an hour or so but the  conversation was just like the  continuation of a bunkhouse  bull-session. Most of the talk  was about logging and no one  had much new to say. I realized  after a bit that was getting very  bored with the same old voices  and faces and decided to strike  out on my own.

If the  analysis of planetary movement  indicates that you are, have  been, or soon will be, going  through a difficult time, it helps  to be aware of how long it will  be at an intense pitch and what  you're supposed to be working  on while it happens.  That's only part of  astrology's use. Another essential function is to let you know  when things are going to go in  your favour so you can take optimum advantage of that time.  When Jupiter passes over the  same position that a planet was  in when you were born, the part  of yourself and your life  represented by that planet will  have the best chance for positive  expansion and growth. For example, on July 18 Jupiter moved to 28 degrees Aries and it will  be loafing around that part of  the sky (within a couple of  degrees), until September 21.  That's an abnormally long  time. As a matter of fact, for  many people who had planets at  that position when they were  born, this could be one of the  luckiest times of their lives. So  pay attention.  Anyone born on April 18, 19  or 20 of any year has it sitting  on their Sun positions. It's a  wonderful time for you to look  into possibilities for a new job  or a new kind of life. The only  cautionary note I would add is  that you all have strong Aries  Workplace  awareness  contest  As a direct result of making  counselling services available to  its employees General Motors  reported an 82 percent drop in  job-related accidents and a 49  percent drop in lost hours  among employees.  "Including employee well-  being in planning is just sound  business practice," according to  Virginia Langdon of the Canadian Mental Health Association, B.C. Division. "Large and  small business managers and  government offices in British  Columbia have demonstrated  their agreement with this belief  by initiating practices which  create a positive workplace  climate.  "We are currently seeking  nominations for Canadian  Mental Health Association's  annual Workplace Awareness  Awards Program from corporations and organizations that actively promote the well-being of  their employees."  Langdon says, "Nominations  should come from people who  feel good about the place where  they work. Organizations don't  have to be perfect - we're looking for initiatives that deserve  recognition. Do managers and  employees share pride in their  workplace? Do people feel free  to contribute ideas and to help  design the implementation of  changes? Is there as much concern for the health and safety of  the work surroundings as the  benefit package?  "We're also looking for initiatives which create employment opportunities for persons  with special needs including persons with managed mental illness."  The deadline for nomination  is September 15, 1987. For information about the Workplace  Awareness Awards Program, or  to request a nomination  brochure, please phone  873-1633 or write to:  Canadian Mental Health  Association, B.C.

Jupiter can exaggerate  that, to either your benefit or  detriment.  Try during this time to relinquish some of your control to  higher powers and take advantage of what is offered to you,  rather than demanding that'  things work the way you think  they should.  Those of you born between  the middle of April, 1934 and  the beginning of May,1935 will  also find some good things happening to you. It's a good time  to buy lottery tickets, but  remember, you can't all win.  Many of you will be blessed  with unexpected opportunities  for personal growth. All of you  will have something in the  nature of a happy surprise coming your way.  A special note to those of you  born close to November 1,  1934. For the last few years  you've had Pluto sitting on your  Sun, Venus and Jupiter positions. It can't have been easy,  but now is the time to reevaluate, pick up the pieces and  move forward in life. Things are  going to be looking up.  Finally there are those of you  who will be experiencing  Jupiter's return to its position  when you were born. This happens about every 12 years and is  considered an extremely lucky  time. However, never before or  again in your life will it be  stronger than this month. Make  the most of these energies.  This group includes people  born: December 8, 1928 to  January 13, 1929; May 26, 1928  to June 9, 1928; May 8, 1940 to  May 20, 1940; April 21, 1952 to  May 3, 1952; April 4, 1964 to  April 16, 1964; and, March 18,  1976 to March 30, 1976.  To you I suggest making  yourself available to opportunity. Each of you will have a  chance to expand your world in  a way that will greatly benefit  your life, maybe even several  opportunities. Don't throw  away this chance.  * # ��� e # e e m  Thirty-six new banners will  grace the streets of Sechelt this  year for the fifth annual Festival  of the Written Arts, August 14,  15 and 16, and their production  has been a local effort from  start to finish.

We made a late reservation and were shown to a window table overlooking the subtle lighting of night-time  Gibsons Harbour upon our arrival.  Lunch had eluded me as it so often does and my appetite was sharp. My wife, too, confessed herself ready for  great things and great things there were to choose from.  The back page of the Omega menu has as fine a selection of tasty pizza possibilities as one could wish and we  have often sampled them, but this was definitely no night  for pizza.  As an introduction I ordered Scallops Saute from the  Starter suggestions on the menu, and followed it up with a  tasty bowl of vegetable soup on my way to the top of the  menu offering, a generous combination serving of steak  and lobster with vegetables and the incomparable Potato  Omega.  My wife has a special fondness for Greek Souvlaki  under the Pastas and Specialties menu section. Knowing  the generosity of the portions from previous visits she  passed on the Starters and the soup.  We were happy to settle for a half litre of the house red  wine with which to clear our palate from time to time.  The dinner was a delight and at the conclusion of our  leisurely dining we found that, to our disappointment, we  could not find room for the marvellous Omega desserts.  It was a warm and satisfying interlude in our busy week,  and one that we plan to repeat before too long.  Bonniebrook Lodge- Enjoy relaxed  and intimate dining in this historic seaside  lodge.

Coast News, August 3,1987  S&Gpif^G  r  Local Shito-ryu karate clubs gave a spectacular demonstration of  splitting boards at Dougal Park during Gibsons Sea Cavalcade.  ���Ken Collins photo  Shito-ryu  bv Ken Collins  Every Tuesday evening at St.  Aidan's Parish Hall in Roberts  Creek the air is split with the  primeval sound of karate yells.  It is the local Karate Club and  on that night the Parish Hall  has become a dojo, a kind of  sacred place where shoes are  removed before entering and  the showing of respect becomes  very important.  Everyone has a sensei, or  master, which translated from  Japanese nieans 'one who is  born before you'. The local  sensei is James McCarthy and  his sensei is in Vancouver. The  style of karate practiced is  Shito-ryu which is one of the  four major styles of traditional  Japanese karate in the world.  "Everyone joins for different  reasons," explains James as he  describes the process people go  through   as   they   experience  karate. There is a spiritual side  of the sport that is not talked  about. Instead it evolves out of  the discipline needed to develop  the physical side of karate.  A demonstration of the easy  speed at which energies can be  focused is given when Michelle  Hall asks one of her fellow club  members to accost her from  behind. Her attacker is about  one third again her size.  He grapples her from behind  in a bear hug and lifts her off  her feet with her arms pinned to  her sides. Two seconds pass and  she appears helpless. In the  third second she is facing her attacker and in the fourth is standing over him. He would have  had more chance hanging on to  a greased football.  There are no age or size  limitations for this sport and the  club welcomes individuals to  drop in and watch or try out a  class.  Tennis tournament  Open to everyone  August 21 to 23 are the dates  for the Annual Sea Cavalcade  Tennis Tournament in Gibsons  Landing.   Ladies'  singles  arid  doubles,   men's   singles   and  ; doubles and mixed events will  all be held on the courts of both  ; Brothers   and   Dougal   Parks,  j with the latter being the centre  ' for scheduling.  Players of all levels are  '��� welcome with the theory of  ! descending probability, assuring  ; all entrants of at least three mat-  ; ches, in singles play and two in  ; other events.  Tennis is a game with a wide  Fastball  range of skills among the  players, but it is a life-time game  and not just for the high level  performers. (Navratilova may  still be injured and unable to  enter!)  The tournament this year will  try to accomodate all who enjoy  a mite of competition and still  give the best on the Coast a shot  at the major titles.  Entries and information may  be made at B & D Sports in  Sunnycrest Mall in Gibsons  (886-4635) or Eric Cardinall at  886-7449.  Old boys win playoffs  In the fourth final game of  ;the playoffs, Ken Bland drove  ;in Brian Evans in the first inn-  iing to give Elphi a 1-0 lead.  Peter Rigby led off the second  inning with a double and scored  on Freeman Reynolds' two run  ,homer to make the score 3-0.  ! Elphi rounded out 12 hits in  all, to win 7-2.  I Alex Skytte pitched the win.  He had only one problem inning. Weldwood got four of their  seven hits in the bottom of the  sixth to score twice.  Rick Kinne had a pinch hit  single to drive in the runs.  Freeman Reynolds 2-2, Peter  Rigby 3-3 and Ken Bland 3-4  paced the Elphi attack.  Weldwood and Elphi are  both going to participate in the  Wildwind Invititational Tournament at Hackett Park on  August 8 and 9.  1 \  USED BUILDING SUPPLIES   I  Quality, used lumber, bricks, windows, lights, plumbing, etc.     I  P A B USED BUILDING MATERIALS        I  11947 Tannery Rd., Surrey I  MONDAY-SATURDAY BSa-1311     J  We also buy used building materials           _/  TIDE TABLES  A  Wed.

Last week's winner)  was Michelle Rivers, RR 1, Hotel Lake Road,  Garden Bay, who correctly identified the kangaroo  sign on Coleman's garage.  White responds  Continued from page 2  wealth and make the rich even richer, are the precise  opposite of the remedy our times now require.  LONG: The NDP appointed Ed Peck as the Chief   ;  Administrative Officer of the Labour Relations   ;  Board (LRB)...the same Ed Peck who is now being  branded as 'all powerful'.  Comment: This is an extraordinarily childish  argument. What makes the IRC chairman too,  powerful is the law he administers, not the personality of the individual. In any case, Paul Weiler was  head of the LRB, not Ed Peck.  LONG: If Ken Georgetti is a moderate as Mr.  White says, he should be willing to see if the legislation works before calling a general strike (and)  threatening to cause 'a chaotic province'...if the  government doesn't kow-tow to labour's demands.  Comment: As Georgetti says, "Why should we  give something we know is going to hurt us a  chance?" When Captain Kidd is making you walk  the plank and you're begging for mercy, it's not really fair to say you're trying to get him to 'kow-tow' to  your 'demands'. Long's choice of words shows a lot  of anti-union prejudice for a self-described 'union  man'.  But what are we to make of the fact Long doesn't  recognize B.C. Federation of Labour head Ken  Georgetti as a moderate? Georgetti has been under  steady fire from inside labour for not being more  militant about Bill 19.  If real militants like Frank Kennedy and Jess Suc-  camore were in charge, the general strike might still  be on. Such an opinion makes one think that not only has Long slept through the Bill 19 debates, he  hasn't ready any newspapers either.  LONG: The spirit of free enterprise and the proud  traditions of the labour movement can strike a proper balance, so that we can all move forward  together.  Comment: That is a good description of the pro-  ; cess Bill 19 and 20 disrupted. As Georgetti said on  June 26, "Last January the B.C. Federation, the  B.C. Business Council, and the Board of Trade sat  down and put together the Pacific Institute for Industrial Policy. For the first time in decades, labour  and business were working together...Now, because  of a handful of ignorant and spiteful politicians,  labour and business will pick up the clubs and start  beating on each other again."  Conclusion: Considering debate over Bills 19 and  20 was the main concern of the session Long just sat  through, his command of the facts and issues involved is not very reassuring, and the vindictiveness of  his tone is most surprising. One hopes he will put on  a better face when making his case for the riding.  AUTOMOTIVE  '87 F-250 4x4's $269./mo. 48  months. TP: $12,912. 1-800-  663-6933. PL 8196.

Sea going granny  Residents at the end of Arbutus Drive in Davis Bay watched anxiously last Monday, as fire flared up in an area being cleared for  further development. ���Penny Fuller photo  Continued from page 7  tide running. There's a great  juggling of lines to allow the inner boat to slip out and much  sorting out of lines and making  fast. The procedure was fascinating to watch.  Since Poole is also a seaside  resort it was full of holiday  crowds. There were lovely shops  selling the famous Poole pottery  and momentoes of Thomas  Hardy's Dorset. Poole is just 24  miles from Dorchester by road,  where Hardy made his home.  And the largest of the islands in  Poole's harbour in Brownsea, is  a bird sanctuary, where the Boy  Scout movement sprang from  an experimental camp in 1907.  Poole could have held us for  days but it was time to leave  England. We had to clear  customs and immigration. In  order to obtain a refund of the  many pounds we'd spent on  VAT we had to arrange to.have  a customs officer come aboard  and sign all our VAT forms.  What a pleasant and obliging  man he was, rearranging his  schedule so he could come  aboard at the best time for us.  We'd already an admiration for  England and the English in  general and for their sailing  fraternity in particular. How  fortunate that our last encounter was with that amiable  official. It left us with a strong  desire to return.  Wonderful memories behind  us, just before dawn we  departed for France.
