 On restructuring  Gibsons to set  up committee  by Ken Collins  Mayor Diane Strom expressed severe displeasure during the  planning meeting of Gibsons  Council last Tuesday at some of  the comments being generated  by Gibsons' proposed restructuring study.  "It is unfortunate that some  people have been using scare  tactics such as 'Your taxes are  going to triple'. We do not  know if taxes are going to increase or decrease," she said.  Strom's comments were in  reaction to a letter allegedly circulating through Area F claiming the Town of Gibsons was  planning a massive expansion.  "We are not proposing a major  boundary expansion," she  stated. "We are asking only for  a study."  "We haven't even set up the  committee yet," the mayor  said, proceeding to clarify how  that committee would be formed. "Each council member will  be asked to put forth names,"  she said. "It is imperative that  an honest study be done."  Town Planner Rob Buchan  suggested council look not for  unbiased people, but for  reasonable people. "To get people that are unbiased is a difficult bill to fill," he pointed  out.  Mayor Strom suggested the  committee to study restructuring might be established within  the next month.  The retaining wall at Ken's  Lucky Dollar store also came  under discussion. In 1975, the  back of the wall was filled with  dirt. The wall developed cracks  and the dirt was immediately  removed   and   hauled   way.  In 1980 or 1981 Building Inspector Ralph Jones pointed out  the cracks to Ken's Lucky  Dollar management and asked  them to correct the matter.  They argued the wall hadn't  moved and there was no  pressure behind it. Time passed.  Recently, the matter was rais-  Please turn to page 8  For those who attended the outdoor salmon barbecue at Rockwood  Lodge last Friday, there was no shortage of fresh sockeye.

The  UFAWU donated the fish and proceeds went toward the construction of a large commercial fishing vessel for Nicaragua.  ���Ken Collins photo  T  When the Forest Advisory  Committee met last week, there  was an obvious feeling of optimism about the results of the  Kiln Investment Meeting held  : the previous week. That  meeting was a consequence of  the Committee's Kiln Feasibility  Study,  Community ^cPcveloprnent-  Officer Irene Lugsdin told last  week's meeting several people  seem seriously interested in investing.  Chairman Tim Clement asked about the community's  possible reaction if the $580,000  of private sector money required came from foreign investors, but Lugsdin appeared  hopeful the capital could be  raised locally.  "We'll wait a month to see  who's interested," she said.  "Then we'll look for investors  from the rest of the province.  After that, we'll have to go offshore (for money)," she said.  Lugsdin told the meeting that  during a recent trip she and  Economic Development Commission chairman Maurice Egan  made to the B.C. Enterprise  Centre, it was obvious that  there are a lot of foreign investors anxious to put their  money in just such a project.  However, it is hoped the kiln  can be locally financed. The  original reason for pursuing the  idea, Lugsdin pointed out, was  to ensure that small local  sawmill operators had access to  a kiln which would increase the  value of their products and encourage development of a re-  manufacturing industry.  At this stage, local access to  the kiln can still be part of any  agreement, but eventually, if investors don't come forward, the  concept will have to be left to  entrepreneurs to pursue as they  see fit.  Jim Gurney outlined the  Regional District's plans to acquire property in the Hillside  area to develop a Forest Products Industrial Park and tank  farm. He explained that the  province is currently in negotiation with G^mStar vthe owners,  and is 6ffering'*tfiefn a trade for  land to be used for gravel extraction, near the Sechelt Indian  Band's extraction site. The  Regional District would then  lease the Hillside land from the  province.  Ray Giza of the Forest Service outined his department's  hopes for the area. These include the location of a public  log dump, and putting a large  portion of the Hillside land into  forest reserve. Fred Gazely of  Canadian Forest Products appeared to like the idea.  "It  At Sargent's Bay  Low tides draw crowd  by Rose Nicholson  Sunday, August 9th saw one  of the lowest tides of the year  and nearly a hundred people  gathered on the beach at Sargent Bay at the invitation of  Joop and Jessie Burgerjon to  explore the fascinating world of  intertidal life.  It was a sparkling day of sun,  water, sand and rocks, as only  the Sunshine Coast can provide.  Burgerjon pulled a dragnet  through the shallow water and  kids and adults alike discovered  starfish, sea anemones, shiners,  sculpin, crabs and all the  myriad inhabitants of the  seashore.  It was a revelation to discover  that eels really are as slippery as  their reputation when several  squealing kids tried to recapture  the one that escaped from the  net. And what a surprise to find  out that it is the male pipefish  that becomes pregnant!  Burgerjon is an executive of  the Sargent Bay Society whose  members are dedicated to the  preservation of the marsh at the  head of the bay as the last virgin  wetland on the Sunshine Coast.  At present the society is trying to block plans of the Sargent Bay Marina Corporation  to gain approval for high density housing at the bay head. Such  a development would destroy  forever the fragile ecological  balance of the area. The society  has instead proposed a park for  the bay and marsh, claiming  that this would increase surrounding land values.  In further action the society  has protested the illegal campground on property owned by  the Sargent Bay Marina Corporation. There are no sanitary  facilities, and residents are wor-  red about pollution. The area is  within the Regional District and  not zoned for commercial camping. In a recent letter from the  SCRD, owners were warned  that camping is in contravention  of regional by-laws.  The situation is being closely  watched by area residents. Sunday's outing brought home to  many people the richness of the  coastal environment and the  vigilance necessary to protect it.  would be nice to put land back  into forest, for a change," he  commented.  A member of the audience,  Vic Walters, strongly,condemned some aspects of the plan,  although he supported the idea  of an industrial park.  First, Walters said, "The  whole idea of a log dump on the  '"peninsula Is just -giving logs to  the Japanese. The log supply  from the Sunshine Coast should  be kept on the Sunshine  Coast."  He questioned where the  wood is going to come from to  keep the kiln operating, and  suggested that Sunshine Coast  sawmills should have "first  refusal" rights on any wood cut  here.  Jim Gurney responded that,  while the committee is attempting to make it more profitable  to keep the logs on the Sunshine  Coast, they don't intend to dictate to anyone.  Walters also chastised the  committee for endorsing the  gravel extraction operation "at  the back door of Sechelt". Admitting that he himself has been  involved in the gravel extraction  business, Walters said that if he  Please turn to page 18  A familiar face when it comes to helping others, Ken Dalgleish was  an active participant in the outdoor salmon barbecue and the  Writers' Festival. ���Ken Coffins photo  On hall location  Seniors to hear  mayor's proposal  by Larry Grafton  Children and adults alike were fascinated by the proliferation of  life in the tidal pools created during last weekend's exceptionally  low tide. ���Rose Nicholson photo  The purpose of an extraordinary meeting or our organization is to allow the entire  membership to vote on a matter  that is extremely vital, not only  now, but particularly in the  future.  Such a meeting has been set  for September 17 at 1:30 pm in  our hall.  Each member will be advised  by letter, either posted or hand-  delivered, stating the purpose of  the meeting. These letters were  prepared and addressed by a  group of volunteers at the hall  last week and will be sent out  prior to September 1.  Most of our members are  aware that our Mayor has indicated a desire for our new activity centre to be located on  Block 7, west of the Shop Easy  Mall. He asked to speak at our  June meeting, but his request  was too late to arrange an extraordinary meeting of our  members and so was switched  over to September.  It will be necessary for our  Mayor to present a one-shot  concrete proposal to this  meeting, stating the concessions  he and the council are prepared  to make in order to sway  members to an affirmative  vote, which he has indicated he  would like to accomplish.  Members must bear in mind,  when considering the Mayor's  proposal, that plans are complete, with minor adjustments,  for a two-storey building on our  present property, with level entry to both floors, because of  the contour of our land.  A change of location to Block  7 would naturally entail a  change of plans to single level,  since Block 7 is flat. This would  require an additional 7,000  square feet of property, to compensate for the present second  floor in our 14,000 square foot  planned building. In the opinion of the building committee,  we should not consider a multilevel building without level access to each floor.  Once the Mayor has  presented his proposal, the  membership will vote by secret  ballot and the outcome of this  straight-majority vote will settle  the matter once and for all,:  without further negotiation on:  our part. 7  The attendance of all;  members at this meeting is imperative so you may exercise-  your franchise, and so there will;  be no finger-pointing in the:  future, regardless of the out-:  come of the vote. Please mark:  your calendars!  CONTROVERSY  Our branch is fortunate to be ;  situated in the residential heart  of the lower Sunshine Coast.  We foresaw, about seven years  ago, the need for an all-purpose  facility in the area, not to match  that of New York or San Francisco, but a facility serving the  purpose of a smaller community.  It won't be fancy and there  will probably be many shortcomings from a theatre or concert point-of-view, but it will  serve the community faithfully  until such time as the area grows  up a little more ��� and probably  beyond the time when north  and south are debating the loca-;  tion for a more suitable facility  for the arts.  !  V-  f-  ''_  "kjf* U WTii1/ I tin kg; s5f9fb  h Coast News, August 17,1987  ->* :  Uncivilized  Last week we editorialised that it might be time we  learnt here in B.C. that the economic way ahead does not  lie with government mega-projects. The events of this past  week demand some further comment.  The decision of the provincial government to reduce the  welfare rates to save four million dollars is an example of  the mean-mindedness prevalent in matters which relate to  people, whether it is welfare costs, health care costs, or  education costs.  That the same governing party, while throwing the province into turmoil and fury over its restraints in these  areas, is throwing hundreds of millions of dollars away on  overruns on the Coquihalla and the expensive and unnecessary and unsaleable coal in the north east is nothing  short of scandalous.  The ruling party complains about financial difficulties  when it comes to people and their services but spends like  drunken sailors on their pet projects which only feed the  boom and bust cycles that plague the west.  The victimization of the poor and the unfortunate  among us is less than civilized.  Restructuring II  We give the subject of restructuring, meaning the possible expansion of Gibsons boundaries, a workout elsewhere  on this editorial page this week but there is another restructuring about which there should be no debate.  It is now 14 months since the majority of those  voting, a pitiful small number admittedly, but the majority  of those voting, decided to opt out of the Sunshine Coast  Regional District (SCRD) and into the district municipality  of Sechelt. For 14 months Director Jack Marsden has  represented no one while continuing to accept a stipend as  a regional director.  Marsden must run for election this November and there  is already talk of others contesting the phantom area's  seat.  Surely with the term coming to an end the regional  board in all responsibility should be ready to recognize the  fact that there is no Area C any more and reduce the  number of elected officials by one.  We challenge any or all of the regional directors or any  of their supporters to justify the present set-up.  Let the composition of the board reflect the realities that  changed in June of 1986. If Director Marsden wants to  represent the people of Davis Bay and Tuwanek as he once  did let him seek a seat on the council of the district  municipality. That's where the people are voting.  And does the determination of the SCRD to retain the  Davis Bay foreshore not seem to be 'anti-democratic', in  Director McGillivray's words. The people who live in  Davis Bay have now no vote with which to affect what  happens to their foreshore.  They have been in effect disenfranchised by the self-  styled democrats at the SCRD.  PPi"-*  ^���M^totmVm 1110$ ot the COAST NEWS  VSmSM  I  5 YEARS AGO  In a letter to the Sunshine Coast Regional District by  J.B. Duns, B.C. Commercial District for Shell Canada  Limited, Shell has indicated its willingness to relocate  its bulk petroleum storage facilities now located in Gibsons in 1983, provided that adequate docking facilities  can be arranged.  10 YEARS AGO  Tickets are selling briskly for the first ever Dogfish  Derby, to be held in Gibsons on Saturday, August 20,  1977. The novel idea has apparently caught the fancy of  local people in this, its inaugural run.  20 YEARS AGO  Sunshine Coast RCMP are now operating under the  new section 203 of the Motor Vehicle Act which involves  voluntary breath test when drinking-driving is  suspected.  Police have received specific instructions on implementing this law including the correct use of the  voluntary breath test when.requested by the driver to  determine the driver's alcohol level.  30 YEARS AGO  Saturday's 'worst storm in memory' left thousands of  dollars damage in its wake when it rolled up West Howe  Sound starting fires and crippling communications as it  went.  Two houses within 100 yards of each other on the  waterfront in the bay at Gibsons were struck by lightning.  The B.C. Electric Company's powerline between  Cheekeye and Powell River was knocked out for 15  minutes, leaving the entire Peninsula without electricity.  40 YEARS AGO  Preliminary figures for June, 1947, show 31 strikes  and lockouts in existence during the month, involving  17,201 of workers with a time loss of 166,370 man-days,  as compared with 43 strikes in May 1947, with 34,013  workers involved and a time loss of 365,424 man-days.  In June, 1946, there were 36 strikes involving 70,600.  workers, with a time loss of 933,876 man-days.  The Sunshine  m%  Published by   GLASSFORD PRESS LTD.

We have now heard in the  past two weeks from two of the  most vocal opponents of the  Restructuring Study for which  Gibsons has received a provincial grant. The third, Area F  Director John Shaske, has  directed his efforts to the pro-,  duction and distribution of a  letter delivered to residencies  within Area F.  Perhaps it would be of  assistance if we put events into  historic sequence so that reader^  less impassioned and committed f  than the regional board directors may form some idea of  what is happening and has happened heretofore.  Early in 1986, the council of  the Town of Gibsons formed an  Economic Strategy Committee.  The suggestion originated, if my  recollection serves me well, with  then acting chairman of the  Economic Development Commission, Barry Wilbee. Gibsons  was applauded by the Sunshine  Coast Regional District (SCRD)  for acting on Wilbee's suggestion.  Appointed to the Economic  Strategy Committee for Gibsons were: Ken Fiedler, Tucker  Forsyth, Keith Frampton, Phil  Grafton, Blaine Hagedorn,  Sheila Kitson, Fred Mason, Art  McGinnis, Rich Mennie, Larry  Penonzek, and Kevin Ryan.  Rob Buchan, town planner of  Gibsons, was appointed advisor  and co-ordinator of the committee.  During its deliberations, the  committee met with the following political figures MLA  Harold Long, Mayor Bud  Koch, Mayor Diane Strom,  SCRD Chairman Gurney,  Alderman Bob Maxwell and administrators Lorraine Goddard  of Gibsons and Martin Thomas  of the Partners in Enterprise  program.  Business  and com  munity leaders participating in  interviews and discussions included Peter Bentley of Canfor,  Captain Tom Whelan and John  Yates of the B.C. Ferry Corporation, Trevor Goddard, Jon  McRae, and D'arcy Burk.  After a process of review and  interview the Economic  Strategy Report was issued in  March of this year. We quote  from the Preamble to that  report:  "In all of our efforts to address our mandate, the term  (and reality) Trading Area'  dominated our discussion.  However, the limitations imposed by the directive of council...  were in conflict with logic. It  was soon evident that a meaningful Economic Strategy  should encompass the established community and transcend  the artificial boundaries which  appear, and could well be proven, obsolete to their original  intent.  "The economic trading area  of Greater Gibsons has been  defined as including all of  regional areas E and F as well as  the town, from the sea to the  Provincial Forest Reserve.  "Therefore, it is our first and  foremost (emphasis in the  report) recommendation that an  objective study be initiated to  report on the benefits and costs  of aligning Gibsons actual 'artificial' boundaries with those  economic."  At least this should make  clear that the recommendation  to restructure Gibsons is not a  plot hatched by Gibsons politicians, but comes from a committee set up with the SCRD's  blessing.  Chairman Jim Gurney is at  some pains to differentiate between the interests of business  people, quite naturally  represented by membership on  the economic committee, and  the interests of rural residents  and this is the essential appeal  that Gurney uses to get elected  in   Area   E.   It   is   certainly  arguable that a prosperous Gibsons would benefit the quality  of life on the Sunshine Coast  and that Gurney's distinction is  disruptive and the root cause of  the endless hostility and bickering that marks our local politics.  It is also true that between  elections Gurney sees himself as  the great champion of economic  development. Only at election  time in Area E does he become  the defender of rural peace and  low taxes.  That SCRD directors are encouraging petitions to be passed  and signatures sought before a  study is done is irresponsible  and possibly illegal. Not too  long ago in the matter of boundary revision the SCRD was  told by Victoria that it should  hold its counsel in these matters  as being between the taxpayers  and the municipality.  Taxpayers will vote against  increases in taxes but a question  not likely to be posed by  Gurney, McGillivray (What is  Roberts Creek doing in this  dispute?), Shaske et al is  whether the Coast would not be  better served without the third  level of government which the  SCRD represents. They have  tried to ignore the fact that they  lost Area C in the last restructuring but could not continue  the masquerade that nothing  has changed or will change  should   another   restructuring  take place.  McGillivray was at some  pains to explain why a process  leading to a vote was 'antidemocratic' but so help me it  translates to me into something  as simple as 'we can't have a  vote because our side might  lose'.  Am I overstating when I say  that such an attitude towards  elections is one McGillivray  shares with such champions of  democracy as Ferdinand de  Marcos, to name but one? It is  the 'power at all costs' school of  political thought.  I don't know whether I'm in  favour of restructuring or not.  I'd like to hear the pros and  cons, however.  Let's not forget the fact that  we are legendary for our quarrelsome and uncooperative  ways here on this Coast. Scarcely a week goes by without one  or other of the local government  figures writing or telephoning  Victoria complaining about the  others. We will not get away  from this constant and pointless  friction until something is  changed around here.  If the SCRD can only justify  its expensive existence by setting  the residents of the Sunshine  Coast at each other's throats  perhaps it is time we restructured it out of existence. All of  us might in fact end up better  off.  For  Services  Rendered  Our wharf shed needs repainting  but the government does nothing.  Not so the gulls.  Regularly, without fail  they line the ridge, squat  and lo! the whitewash is renewed.  They should send their bill to Ottawa.  Hubert Evans  from Whittlings  Coast Lines  Harmonic convergence locally?  by Nancy MacLarty  Those who know about these  things say we should all be different today because the earth  has just entered its sixth cycle!  Yesterday, August 16, 1987  marked the 'harmonic convergence' of the energy from the  sun and the energy from the  earth and we all should feel an  awakening of new consciousness about ourselves and our  environment.  Apparently, the human race  has been evolving towards a  more female influence over the  past 75 years and this convergence of energy is the 'grain  of sand that tipped the scales'.  Some harrassed males may  think it is more like the 'straw  that broke the camel's back'.  But it has been prophesied  by, among others, the Hopi Indians, the Mayans and the Book  of Revelations that during this  sixth cycle warriors will stop  warring and polluters will stop  polluting. I wonder if governments and industry have heard  about this. If not, they should  certainly be made aware of the  convergence so that they may  begin to take steps to conform  with the people.  We'll know if it really is a  harmonic convergence if the  District of Sechelt rejects out of  hand the proposal by Chevron  to build a gas tank farm on the  east side of Porpoise Bay. I'm  sure if council all chanted  together yesterday morning at  five that any thoughts they may  have had of allowing hundreds  of thousands of gallons of fuel  to be barged up Sechelt inlet  and through the Skookumchuk  will seem as monstrous to them  as it does to most other sane  people.  The sixth cycle also means the  return of the Mayans. I do hope  that parliament takes this into  consideration as they hammer  out the new immigration bill. If  a herd of Mayans landed on  Long Beach it would be difficult, if not impossible, to send  them back to Atlantis or  wherever to wait until they have  been properly processed.  However, if the Mayans did bring along their gold...who  knows?  On another note, the Writer's  Festival seems to be another  success for the Forge and the  District of Sechelt. I was asked  to be a greeter for several of the\  arriving authors. I balked a bit  when I read my instructions  however.  The forge asked me to take  care of 'any problems' that the  speakers might have. I called  my forge contact and asked  what 'any problems' might entail. Not having finished my  'Dr. Ruth' course, I felt I might  not qualify for the job. This was  clarified for me as 'any problems within reason' and so I  took on the task without  qualms, and it has been an enjoyable experience.  And on a final note, I'll be on  holidays starting the 17th, so  Coast Lines will not appear for  the next three issues. The good  Lord willing (the Lord being in  this case the Editor of Coast  News) I'll be back with you  after Labour Day. Try to hold  on till then! Coast News, August 17,1987  Editor:  May I take this opportunity  to add some facts to your  August 10 editorial on the  perspective of the Gibsons  Economic Strategy Committee  with respect to restructure of the  Town of Gibsons.  Firstly, some corrections to  your editorial: in fact three  Committee members live within  the Town boundaries, two in  Area F, four in Area E, one in  Roberts Creek and one in  Sechelt.  All of the Committee  members who live outside of the  town boundaries have business  interests in the town.  The committee members  were selected by the town to  represent the economic interests  of the community, not the  perspective of residents on  restructure.  Some committee members  are associated with land  development interests in and  outside of the. present town  boundaries.  There is nothing improper  with all of this, but to propose  that these people represent the  same perspective on restructuring as a typical resident of Area  E or F is not fair to the  residents, or even the committee  members themselves.  As for the Town Planner and  the Mayor representing the  perspective of Area E and F  residents, is there hot the  possibility of a slight conflict of  interest?  The fact you fail to consider  is that over 2,000 residents and  electors in Areas D, E and F  signed a petition "opposing the  expansion of the Town of Gibsons into Areas E and F".  Even if you disregard the  points I raise here and compare  that with the 11 Economic  Strategy Committee members,  the ratio is still 200 to one opposing restructure.  Curious, isn't it, how the  perspective changes when one  looks through the right end of  the telescope?  James Gurney  Director, Area E  Egomania epidemic  Editor:  About a year ago, I was appointed a 'member at large' of  the Economic Development  Commission (EDC). Despite  time constraints owing to my  personal business commitments, I have given freely of my  time and efforts whenever  possible, similar to other  volunteers of the many community organizations, committees, boards, etc.  The Sunshine Coast has gained a reputation for disharmony  and mistrust between the  various interest groups. I used  to rationalize that as being common to all growing communities, however, I now  believe we are experiencing a  serious epidemic of egomania.  This epidemic is being fuelled  by irresponsible and uninformed reporting such as the trash  that has become routine with  the Press under the heading of  Coast Pilot.  To my knowledge, the author, McDowell, has never attended a meeting of the EDC,  but considers himself an expert.  Other members of both local  newspapers attend meetings  regularly.  That in itself should provide  some indication of his credibility, yet he persists in discrediting  individuals who have no axe to  grind and are simply trying to  provide a service to the community.  That is not to say that the  EDC is not affected by  egomania or certain members  who place political ambitions  before their mandate to serve  fairly. These individuals are  found in every organization.  I have nothing to gain by  coming to the defence of the  Chairman of the EDC, and the  Community Development Officer, but in all fairness their  dedication and efforts must be  put into perspective, particular.-*  ly because of the constant  negativism and persecution  towards them and the EDC  which is becoming synonymous  with the Press. The public is invited to attend the monthly  meetings of the EDC and form  their own opinions on a much  more informed basis.  The EDC does not make a  policy of advertizing its accomplishments. Economic  development requires a broad  base followed by continuous,  gradual growth and is rarely  dynamic.  Things are happening and  anyone without blinders can see  a general upswing in business  activity. Let's not wipe out advances by supporting and emphasizing the negative.  It's time we worked together  for a common cause even if it  means that certain ego-infected  individuals in public life should  step down and make way for  others who can get along.  Art Giroux  West Sechelt  Workshop fee  Editor:  While wandering through  Lower Gibsons this past week,  my attention was caught by a  poster announcing a workshop  to be held in August. The purpose of which was to celebrate  an extraordinary influx of  'God-conciousness' into our  planet.  I am always eager to expand  my spiritual horizons and read  the notice with growing interest  until I came to the words 'fee  $30', and only a potluck dinner!  Now I realize that there is a  pervasive trend in the 'New  Age' movement to equate  spirituality with material prosperity, but it is a little  disheartening to think that  because I am in a low-income  group and cannot afford to  spend $30 for this workshop,  the beneficient cosmic rays will  pass me by.  It is unfortunate that an occurrence which would possibly  benefit all of humankind should  be exploited as a commercial  enterprise.  Laurel Sukkau  Pleased sponsor  Editor:  Our company was pleasd to  sponsor a draw for a trip for  two to the Sunshine Coast at the  recently held Vancouver International Beer Festival. The  weekend trip is to include a  guided tour of the Sunshine  Coast Brewery as well as a taste  of Orca Lager.

Housing Management for an expansion of the  Greenecourt Housing Complex.  The service club has been  managing the current facility  for about eight years* but Mike  Shanks, Lions president, says  more units have been needed for  a long time.  At present there is an average  waiting list of 30 to 40 people.  Most of the units in the present  complex are bachelor suites.  The proposed expansion would  contain 24 one-bedroom units.  Money for the expansion was  applied for at the end of June,  and a letter received 10 days ago  approved the plans on the condition that the working drawings meet Housing Management's specifications.  Working drawings are now  being prepared by the Coast Architectural Group and should be  ready by November. Cost of the  project is anticipated to be in  the range of $500,000 to  $750,000. Construction would  be completed by next summer.  Coast News, August 17,1987  Roberts    Creek  Firefighters tee off  by Jeanie Parker, 885-2163  The Roberts Creek Volunteer  Firefighters and friends  thoroughly enjoyed their annual  round of golf on August 9. The  tournament has become a tradition especially enjoyed by the  non-players who always vow  they'll get out more often afterward.  There were some good shots  and some bad, some moments  of exhilaration and some of abject humiliation (we won't talk  about the lady who took an accidental dip in one of the water  hazards!).  The course was great, the  weather magnificent, and the  rabbits, sandpipers and geese  added to the entertainment.  The group returned to the  Fire Hall afterward for a  potluck luncheon and prizes.  There were some protests when  "the lone twosome," tournament organizers Lenny. Gould  and Pam Knowles, were  declared the overall winners,  but many people received  recognition for their efforts and  achievements.  Many thanks to Lenny and  Ken Eidet and their assistants  for organizing the tournament  this year, and to the members of  the Sunshine Coast Golf and  Country Club, especially Mary  Horn, for their hospitality and  tolerance. If the VFD's high  spirits can be endured, they'll be  back again next year!  RAINBOW PRESCHOOL  Rainbow Preschool is now  taking names for registration.  The school year starts in October. Phone Judy Oldham at  885-3183 to sign your kids up.  GUIDE CAMP  The 1st Roberts Creek Guide  Company enjoyed a week of  sun (mostly), sand, swimming  and fresh air at Camp Olave in  Wilson Creek last week.  Besides their activities on the  beach and in the woods, they  hosted a tea for members of the  Adult Day Care one afternoon,  planted a fir tree to commemorate their stay at camp,  and are suspected of festooning  the caretaker's house with ribbon! Other than that, they were  model campers!  The Roberts Creek girls' stay  at Camp Olave coincided with  an Area Camp of nearly 100  Girl Guides from all over B.C.  and several Girl Scouts from  Washington State. Tara Mat-  suzaki and Colleen Duncan  from Gibsons were selected to  attend as representatives of this  area.  SCOTTISH VISITOR  Margaret Lindsay is enjoying  a visit with her daughter Alison  Lindsay, son-in-law John  Bolton and grandsons Luke, 9,  and Jethro, 2. Margaret, who  celebrated her 72nd birthday  here August 10 with a ride with  all the Boltons on the Royal  Hudson steam train to  Squamish,   hails   now   from  Braintree, Essex, in England,  but was born and brought up in  Fife, Scotland. This is her .second visit to the Sunshine  Coast, which she finds  beautiful, her first stay at the  Bolton home on Beach Avenue  being in 1984.  Margaret finds it a little  harder to get in the water now  than in '84, but still enjoys a  swim in the clear sea waters  here. She will be staying until  October 2.  STORIES POPULAR  The Roberts Creek Community Library's story hour is  enjoying great popularity. Between 15 and 20 pre-schoolers  gather on Wednesday mornings  to be entertained with readings  from books or, on occasion,  original story creations.  The story hour is from 11 to  noon every Wednesday, either  outside in the park or in the  spacious new addition to the  library. They just started this  summer but plan to continue all  year round.  And speaking of the library's  new additon, there will be an  Open House for the grand  opening on September 1. Watch  for more details.  LEGION MUSIC  Larry Bransen will be back at  the Roberts Creek Legion at the  end of the month, August 28  and 29. The older folk will appreciate his easy-listening style,  so do come out. Members and  guests are welcome.  Pender People 'ri  Places  Lees mark their 50th  by Joan Wilson  Fifty years ago, a handsome  young fisherman walked down  the aisle with the local  schoolmarm.  Frank and Clara Lee are still  happily married, and their family is celebrating this very special  anniversary with a dinner on  Saturday August 28 at the Community Hall.  "Open House" starts at 4,  with dinner at 6. All friends and  neighbours of the Lees are cordially invited to share in the  celebrations.  Frank arrived in the Harbour  as a young boy, grew up and  joined the fishing fleet, working  hard until his retirement in  1973. Clara came to teach at Irvine's Landing from her home  at Nanoose Bay, later teaching  at Madeira Park Elementary for  14 years and at Pender Harbour  Secondary for one year, retiring  in 1972.  BOUQUETS  A very special bouquet of  thanks to Gail, Tara and Steve  Rolston for a job done quietly  and very well. Gail noticed that  the gardens around the Info  Centre needed some attention,  so on one of her rare days off  from work at the Rolston's  business, she and the kids took  their garden tools and did the  job. Thank you from everyone  who passes by the Info Centre!  OOPS!!  When the Regional Board  puts up a sign to mark the new  park at the old forestry site, I  hope they learn from my mis  take,   and  spell   "Markle  S.  Myers Regional Park" correctly.  DON'T FORGET  Boogie to the music of Knight  Shift on Saturday August 22 at  the Lioness Dance. Tickets are  $10 at the Oak Tree, John  Henry's, PetroCan, Kenmar  and Gilligan's Pub in Sechelt.  Door prize is a huge Texas  mickey.  Davis Bay News ��* Views  Pioneer Picnic  by Jean Robinson, 885-2954  Come join your neighbours  at 2 pm on August 30, at  Whitaker Park for the fourth  annual Pioneer Picnic.  Starts off with a children's  parade of decorated bicycles,  tricycles and wagons. There will  be a prize in each category for  the best decoration. Ages two to  12 can participate.  At 2:30 we leave to visit the  Chapman Creek Fish Hatchery,  races for all ages follow plus a  horseshoe competition.  Corn on the cob, as usual,  fresh from the Fraser Valley will  be selling for one ticket, ice  cream one ticket, and pop two  tickets. Tickets are three for $1.  Bring some cold cuts and a  salad for the potluck supper.  Don't forget cutlery and paper  plates. Buns, butter and  napkins will be provided. Tea  and coffee for a donation. This  goes rain or shine.  BROOKMAN DERBY  What a day! Children from  six to 12 fished off the Davis  Bay wharf in this annual event.  Starting off with a pie eating  contest won by Shawn Ambrose  first, and Kevin Shorthouse second.  The results of the fishing derby are: largest fish, Roy  Sutherland, Cody and Curtis  Munson tied for second; biggest  shiner, Brad Heywood; largest  flounder, Quentin Lair and  Sven Burt; largest crab, Tiffany  Liddle; the most shiners were  caught by Jason Hirose and  Cheryl and Natalie Heywood.  Thanks to the merchants of  Davis Bay for sponsoring this  derby, to Chevron for the use of  the wharf and special thanks to  the Sechelt Rod and Gun Club  for the trophy. Extra special  thanks to the volunteers who  helped all day.  Public  Gibsons  Hours;  Tuesday  Wednesday 1f\:30-8pntl  ^ed- 10am 1  Fresh B.C.

Another benefit is the sharing  of your accomplishments with  others,  and   to  this  end  the  Sechelt Garden Club is sponsoring a garden contest. It is open  to the residents of the District  Municipality of Sechelt and to  Garden     Club     members  wherever they live.  Judging will begin this Sunday, August 23. Deadline for  entries is Tuesday, August 18.  Make your entry simply by  phoning Vivian Cooksley,  885-7646, Enid Lofthouse,  885-9084, or Eric Huskins,  885-3309.  Besides the satisfaction of being chosen best gardener, you  will be in line for prizes.  The plus for all gardeners  could be the critique offered by  the judges as to how they made  their choice.  The Sechelt Garden Club  holds its meetings the first  Wednesday of each month at  St.. Hilda's Church Hall. New  members are welcome and what  a great way it is to find the  answers to your garden^ pro  ^_t$$  blems  and  learn  about  new  varieties of old favourites.  THRIFT SHOP OPEN  The St. Mary's Hospital  Auxiliary's Thrift Shop has  opened its doors for another  day each week, due to so much  stock that the ladies find an extra day helpful in "moving it".  Now the shop is open Tuesday through Saturday, 10 am to  3 pm. This takes more  volunteers but the Auxiliary  members are taking on the extra  day as part of their volunteer  work.  The Thrift Shop, next to the  Chicken Shack on Cowrie Street  in Sechelt, is an interesting place  to stop and see what unusual  items they have on their shelves,  pick up a book or two, and  maybe even fit yourself out in a  whole new wardrobe.  ST. MARY'S HOSPITAL  Talk about moving mountains! The amount of soil being  removed at St. Mary's Hospital  is certainly changing the look of  the area around the back of the  hospital. A lot of this is being  stockpiled while the base of the  building is under construction,  and that is quickly rising out of  the ground.  The great need for extended  care beds will be aided by the  hospital addition.  Halfmoon Bay Happenings  Clan McPhalen  by Ruth Forrester, 885-2418  Some 45 members of the  McPhalen clan gathered at  Duck Rock Beach recently to  celebrate the 90th birthday of  Hugh C. McPhalen.  Hugh was born at Canmore,  Alberta, the son of a locomotive  engineer. At the age of 12, he  moved with his family to Vancouver. During the first world  war, he joined the artillery and  was drafted to France. His  father, who was 50 years of age  and blind in one eye, was also  serving in France, having volunteered for service with the  railroad troops.  Both Hugh and his father  were awarded the Military  Medal, Hugh for carrying  dispatches through enemy territory and his dad for pulling a  munitions train out, under  heavy fire.  Home in Vancouver at the  end of the war, Hugh worked  with the Powell River Company  for 41 years, retiring in 1963 as  machine room superintendent.  He spent the next two years in  Chile helping organize a  newsprint mill and training  Chileans to operate it.  Hugh has one son, three  daughters, 13 grandchildren  and 16 great-grandchildren. His  beloved wife Agnes died in  1984, just three weeks after the  celebration of their 64th wedding anniversary.  Hugh now spends most of his  time working in his beautiful  garden situated on quite a steep  slope, which would prove a  challenge to a much younger  man. Happy 90th Birthday,  Hugh, from all your friends and  neighbours in Halfmoon Bay.  TIDAL EXPLORATION  Last Sunday morning's low-  tide exploration organized by  the Sargeant Bay Society turned  out to be a very popular outing,  attended by more than 100 people.  The many children who took  part were fascinated by the  strange and wonderful creatures  caught in the net and transported to glass aquariums for  the little ones to view and enjoy.  Please turn to page 13  Economic Development  Commission (EDC) chairman  Maurice Egan will be talking to  people from the Sunshine Coast  Employment Development  Society and the Small Business  Centre about the possibility of  sharing premises.  At last Friday's meeting of  the EDC, Egan discussed the  possibility of perceived problems relating to the EDC's  location in the Sunshine Coast  Regional District's (SCRD) offices.  There had been some suggestion, Egan explained, that the  SCRD might have undue influence on the Commission as a-  result of sharing space.  Although that's not true, he  said, it might ease those concerns if the EDC relocated.  There   are   some   obvious  disadvantages to this option,'  one of them being a necessary  increase  in  budget,   he  said.  Both Gibsons and Sechelt were  highly critical of the EDC  budget this year.  At present the SCRD provides office space and  secretarial services to the EDC,  as well as sharing equipment.  This discussion was preceded by  an agreement to have the SCRD  purchase a Fax machine and the  EDC purchase the accompanying modem. The dispersal of  such shared equipment would  have to be worked out if the  EDC moves into offices of their  own.  Bruce Mosely, finance chairman of the commission, suggested that if Canada Futures  establishes an office here, it  might be appropriate to bring  all the groups involved in  economic development under  one roof.  The commission agreed to  allow Egan to discuss the options with appropriate people.  Roberts Creek Community Association  Wed. Sept. 16, 1987 at 8 pm  J.N.

There have been a great many  yachts coming and going at the  marinas and the government  wharf. I noticed Vera, our  amiable dockmaster, making  many trips back and forth from  home, always with a cheerful  smile and "Hello" for  everyone.  Another area that has been  exceptionally busy this past  week is the Skookumchuck Provincial Park. There have been  unusually good tides for rapids-  watching and, on Sunday, there  were so many visitors' cars that  there was single-lane traffic at  the parking lot.  The park is a great attraction  to visitors on the north end of  the peninsula, and, now that the  size of the park has been increased with the inclusion of  Brown Lake, I wonder if the  Parks Branch has any plans for  creating camping facilities.  That there is a demand for  camping places there seems little  doubt. I'm told the private  campground nearby is usually  filled by repeat customers since  it has a reputation for being  both clean and quiet.  The tourists who prefer to  stay at government campsites  Looking back at News  by George Cooper, 886-8520  Fred and Dorothy Cruice  were married in Winnipeg on  August 11, 1928, and went the  same day to Regina where Fred  was appointed telegraph editor  of the Leader Post.  Fred and Dorothy took over  the Coast News in 1954 from  the Nutters and put out their  first paper on September 3.  Dorothy remembers still working at 4 am getting that issue  ready. "But we never had to do  that again," Dorothy told us.  TEENAGE ACTIVITIES  The following anonymous  letter was received by the Coast  News. It may sound like similar  complaints heard recently on  the nothing-to-do theme or  'give us a skateboard layout.'  This letter appeared in the  Coast News 31 years ago  (February 2, 1956) when Fred  Cruice was editor and publisher, and Do Wortman, advertising manager.  "Dear Editor: We, the  teenagers of the peninsula are  asking for help to put our ideas  over. To put it short, there is  simply nothing for us to do.  The grownups seem to take  no interest m us. However, they  have plenty to say when we  hang around, smoke, and drive  around in cars. Could you tell  us what we are supposed to  spend our money and time on  other than these things?  If we had a rec centre or  roller rink or something like this  we'd be satisfied. Something to  do and make good clean fun.  We are asking adults for help as  we cannot do these things alone.  The Teenagers."  Fred prefaced a lengthy  editorial with this letter.  "Reveals the inertia so  prevalent among the young people of today," he wrote in part.  "They want someone to prime  the pump for them. Surely  there's a spark plug among  them or are they all dead on  their feet."  The next week, February 9,  1956, the Coast News ran, on  the front page, a number of letters in reply from parents and  teenagers.  "From Sunday to Thursday  they could stay home and do  their homework," said a  parent. "And on Fridays and  Saturdays there are movies, and  there's badminton, Teen Town.  Ever thought of going to church  or teaching a Sunday school  class?"  Another parent, "Teenagers  act up at dances and would probably smoke on the way there  and back if they did have a  rink."  A  teenager  wrote  that  he  You are invited to join is for 'AFTERNOON TEA' featuring scones,  homemade jam and whipped cream.

The Sechelt Rod and Gun  Club's secretary, William  Rankin, wrote that the club had  offered to form a junior club  and needed teen help to build  the junior facilities. But no one  showed up.  A mother wrote, "Some are  out to all hours...show no  respect...let them do something  for others."  Chuck Tomkins, the sports  editor of the Coast News at the  time said,'"For once I agree  with the editor. When I was a  teen, we organized our own ball  clubs, and found all kinds of  facilities for us to use. Do they  lack initiative nowadays?"  Those were the reactions then  to the complaint of nothing to  do. Let's see, those teenagers of  1956 would now be the 45 to 50  year olds, perhaps the parents  of our complaining teenagers of  today.  BLACKBERRIES  "You said that you had  blackberries right at your  door," my Aunt Anastie said,  "but I only see a mess of  chewed-up stems."

Couldn't they wait  until we'd gathered in the bounty of nature?"  "We could try our old patch  at Gower Point," I suggested.  "Not on your life," said Aunt  Anastie and I silently concurred. The Gower Point berries  grew on a steep bank and the  other year Aunt Anastie had  reached too far for that last  berry and had tumbled out of  sight, but definitely not out of  hearing.  A tow truck passing by was  called on to run a line down to  her and out she came tattered  and steaming angry at losing her  full bucket of blackberries. She  still believes I phoned for the  tow instead of crawling down to  rescue her myself.  "I think," she added, "that  I'll go to the town meeting and  raise a stink about this destruction."  I murmured about her not  being a taxpayer here, and  besides the council was having  enough trouble already with  stinks and smells.  She would have gone anyway  if a neighbour down the street  hadn't invited us to pick the  blackberries on her spare lot,  which made aunt too busy to attend council meetings.

Coast News, August 17,1987  A lady with a-lure, Chris Kavanagh'of Gibsons landed this 27 and a  half pound spring salmon while jigging with a lure from the Alibi  Wahoo off Trail Islands. Chris had boated a 22 pounder two days  earlier, mooching with live herring in the more traditional salmon  fishing style.  Gardening notes  by Marguerite  With your garden now filled  with summer flowers, it's easy  just to relax and enjoy it. But I  think back to winter: didn't you  sometimes wish you had more  colour then?  Heathers are wonderful for  this. They love our acid soil,  and can fill borders with colour  all year, giving a bonus of  bright foliage.  A visit to the garden centres  will help with your selection.  Most lilies are planted in the  fall, but Madonna lilies are best  set now. They need a sunny  spot, so your best plan is to  plant them in clumps between  low-growing shrubs. They will  grow to about four to five feet  tall. They love moisture, so the  ground should be well dug, with  some well rooted manure or  Drop off your  COAST NEWS  CLASSIFIEDS  at  Sp��avl*w Market  Roberts Creek  "A Frlsndly P*opl* Plao*"  compost. Set the bulbs six inches apart, and just barely cover  with '/_ inch of soil. Mark the  planting so you won't dig it up  by mistake later on.  Crops which have finished  should be cleared out, and the  ground manured or not, depending on the rotation.  Where broccoli, spring cabbage, savoy, onion and early  summer lettuce are grown,  manure helps.

In a letter to the committee,  Heritage Society chairman Fred  Inglis asked that five steps be  taken:  1. That "First Camp", the  dam, the tramway and the trail  up to it, including 100 metres in  all directions, be declared a  heritage park.  2. That a signed hiking trail  be constructed.  3. That a billboard be erected  next to Elphinstone Cemetery  showing the full extent of the  shingle bolt operation and the  routes it followed.  4. That funding be found to  help the Elphinstone Cemetery  organization maintain the  pioneer cemetery and restore it  to its original condition.  5. That portions of the tramway and flume be rebuilt.  Inglis pointed out ��� and  SCRD chairman Jim Gurney  agreed ��� that funding for the  project will be a major problem.  Gurney suggested the first  crucial step was for the SCRD  to secure tenure on the land,  possibly by having it designated  a heritage site.  The Parks Committee agreed  to try to identify ways of raising ;  money to develop and maintain  the site.  In his letter, Inglis outlined  the historical significance of the  area. The Stoltz Shingle Bolt  Co., at about the 1,600-foot  level on lylount Elphinstone,  was for many years the centre of  industry in the Gibsons area.  In 1903, the Battle Drew Co.  moved a steam-powered  sawmill up to this site, where  for many years it sawed dimensional lumber. As was the way  in those days, an immense  flume, using water from what is  now known as Chaster Creek,  was employed to carry the  lumber from the sawmill site to  Gibsons Bay. The flume was  lost in the great forest fire of  1906.  Around 1919 Stoltz Shingle"  Bolt constructed a camp on thes*,*  site which came to be known as:t ���  "First Camp". It included a  foreman's   office,   cookhouse,  cook's   'dwelling,      two  bunkhouses,   stables   and   a  Gibsons  Council  Continued from page 1  ed again by the Town of Gibsons so Ken's Lucky Dollar installed five anchors in the wall  that are rated to hold 5,000  pounds each. They are also willing to cut off the top portion of  the wall at a cost of about  $3,000.  That is not enough for Works  Superintendent Bob Marchand.  He wants the wall certified  either safe or unsafe by a professional engineer. The problem  :is that without drawings no one !  tcan say, one way or the other.  And there are no drawings,  so the composition of the wall is  unknown.  Ken's Lucky Dollar says it  wants to satisfy the town but  wants a letter specifying what is  required. A suggestion of  abutments by Alderman Bob  Maxwell is being considered.  Realtors Ken Crosby and Jim  Munro were on hand to represent the interests of Fred Lee,  owner of the Harbour Cafe  building. Lee owns lots 20, 21  and 22 behind the building,  which are subject to a restrictive  covenant that specifies they be  used for parking.  Lee offered to purchase two  parking spaces in the public lot  if the covenant could be lifted.  The committee recommended  that the offer be accepted but .  that the covenant remain on one  of the lots, and that it be  developed into parking.  The committee also recommended that a business licence  be denied for an arcade in  Seaview Place. The vote was  split, two against and two in  favour, with the mayor casting  the deciding vote.  Commenting on the decision,  applicant Don Adams said: "I  would have preferred if the opposing aldermen had taken a  look at the premises."  "I was up there today,"  replied Mayor Strom.  The reason for opposition  was concern about elderly  residents nearby. "It is a  residential area," said Alderman Norm Peterson. "I think  the quality of life will  diminish."  I  blacksmith's shop.  A new flume was built,  beginning at the dam site, dropping northeast along the south  slope of Mount Elphinstone to  cross Gibsons Creek just below  the , waterfall, to Langdale  Creek and down it to the sea  where the ferry terminal now  stands.  To supply building materials  for all this, a cable railway was  built from near the Elphinstone  Cemetery to First Camp, where  the stationary engine which  powered it was located.  Inglis explained the Heritage  Society hoped that by preserving and renovating sites such as  this, "we will all derive a greater  sense of our common heritage  and a greater appreciation for  the life and work of our  forbears."

DULY BEANS  1 .Green beans, about the size of your middle finger, topped  and tailed.  2 .Blanch for two minutes, drain and cool immediately.  3 .Place in jars with one small red chili  pepper, one clove garlic, one head dill.  California Grown  tomatoes  lb.  4 .Boil equal parts cider vinegar and  water, together with one tablespoon  coarse salt per cup of liquid and one  head of dill to every three cups of liquid.  Boil five minutes.  5 .Drain the hot liquid. Pour over beans. Seal jars.  6 .Keep one month before eating.  PICKLED ONIONS  Buy silver skin onions, as many as you think you can eat. Give them  a quick rinse in cold water, then pop them into a brine made of one  part coarse salt to eight parts cold water. Put a weight on them to  ensure they're fully in the water.  After twelve hours remove from brine and pop them out of their  skins. This is a mindless task so sit in front of the telly! Pop them  into a fresh batch of wine and leave 36 hours.  Then make up a batch of spiced vinegar.  1 quart malt or white vinegar  1 cinnamon stick  1 teaspoon whole cloves  1 teaspoon mace  1 teaspoon whole allspice  1 teaspoon peppercorns  Bring to the boil in a covered saucepan. Place in a large non-metallic  bowl, cover and steep for two hours or longer. Strain and use as re- \  quired. The vinegar has a stronger taste if you use malt vinegar. It:  can be used in beets, red cabbage, cauliflour or other vegetables.  NEST LEWIS  item bv (teiife Coast News, August 17,1987  Allan Fotheringham stayed late into the evening signing books for  fans after his presentation at the Writers' Festival Saturday.  ���Ken Collins photo  Pages From A Life-Log  Raftcamp  by Peter Trower  I thanked the girl profusely.  She had definitely saved me  from a potentially unpleasant  situation. The party was very  much over. As soon as the coast  was clear, I hightailed back to .  the Nimpkish Hotel and the  safety of my rented room. For  the rest of our shore leave in  Alert Bay, I hung out with Big  Danny and the others and kept;  a low profile.  It was late Monday afternoon***"  before we arrived back at the  raftcamp. Eddie Carrington  (who had been away on one of  his interminable trips when we  left) was waiting on the dock.  He was obviously not too hap-  V-V-'-  py. "Jesus H. Christ!" he burst  out self-righteously,"I thought  you guys would have been back  yesterday. We gotta get that  boom finished!"  "Ah, don't go getting your  shorts in a knot," said Big Dan  reasonably. "The boys and me  needed a break. Christ knows,  you take enough of them!"  Eddie didn't have much  ground to stand on there. He  looked mad enough to spit  railroad spikes but he turned on  his heel and stalked peevishly  away. There was not much said  at supper that night. Mildred  wore a reproving look and even  old Harry, normally garrulous,  had little talk in him.  Next morning things were  back to more-or-less normal.  We panted up the side-hill with  lingering hangovers and started  making money again.  The year wound down towards winter. The mornings  were sometimes frosty and bitter now but it was cedar country  and easy to light fires. I got  mine blazing before the starting  whistle each morning and  hunkered down beside it to  relay the various hoots and  howls that Big Dan and Paddy  hurled in my direction.  Back at camp, relations between Eddie Carrington and Big  Danny   were   growing   progressively more strained. A couple of times, we heard them  arguing in the boar's nest of a  house they shared. Eddie was  : complaining   about   low   log  ; counts and Danny was yelling  "right back that, if he wanted  more logs, he'd better, by the  Lord Jesus!, pitch in and help  instead of tom-catting around  the  country in his goddamn  speedboat.  Our sympathies were all with  Big Dan. He'd been patient as  hell up to this point. Granted  Eddie was the money partner  but he had been abusing the fact  beyond any excuse. In the four  months I'd worked there, he  had been away almost half the  time on one spurious errand or  another.  On a cold night in late  November, with snow clouds  hanging ominously overhead,  things finally hit the fan. There  was another noisy altercation  between Big Dan and Eddie,  but this time, it didn't stop'with  words. "All right, if that's what  you want, you little bastard!"  roared Dan and both of them  came storming out of the house.  "By God!" shouted Paddy,  "they're actually going to go at  it!" We headed for the door like  one man.  As fights went, it was pretty  much of a mismatch. Eddie was  about five ten and solidly built  but Danny topped him by  several inches.

According to  many metaphysicians, the world  is being polarized. One writer  (at least), Jose Arguelles, says  the only resolution of polarity is  in harmonization.  It makes sense. Bass and  soprano in harmony create a  beautiful sound. The influx of  energy this past weekend, Arguelles says, will aid in setting  up a field of resonance where  the extremes can be blended in  harmony.  It is interesting that immediately after this time, on  August 18, 19, 20 and 21, two  planets which represent opposite energies will appear to sit  stationary in the sky.  Jupiter represents expansion  of consciousness and Saturn the  restrictions that are put on us by  society and 'reality'. I picture  Jupiter as an eagle soaring and  Saturn as the water around an  island. If you choose to soar  high enough you will realize  that there are no real obstacles,  only spaces that need to be  crossed.  Whenever a planet appears to  stay in the same position in the  sky for a few days (is stationary)  the particular issues attached to  it are emphasized, worldwide.  During the upcoming week, it  will become apparent which  areas of your life need to be adjusted. Saturn has a way of  making you look at things  you'd just as soon ignore.  With Jupiter also being stationary, solutions and alternatives will also be emphasized.  This is true for everyone, but of  course, a few individuals will be  especially affected.  Those of you born around  December 6, 7 and 8; June 5, 6  and 7 of every year; April or  November 1957; December  1927; January and June  through October 1928, will  strongly feel the Saturn influence on your lives. It could  be easy to become bogged down  in all the things holding you  back from what you want to do.  Try to open yourself to the  Jupiter energy, which will suggest new options to you.  This is a time of unusual solutions for all of us.

Eddie danced  around like a boxer and threw a  couple of ineffectual body punches. Then Danny grabbed him  arid they wrestled about on the  slimy; planks. Suddenly,- amazingly, Dan lifted Eddie up as  though he weighed nothing, carried his struggling partner to the  edge of the float and pitched  him bodily into the freezing  saltchuck.  T thought of the way Eddie  had laughed at me during my  frequent dunkings on the  A-frame arid-1 can't say I felt  sorry for him at all.  Eddie hauled himself out  coughing and spluttering, with  no fight left in him. "That's  it!" he gasped. "We're finished! I'm tearing up the goddamn  contract!"  "Go right ahead," said Big  Danny. "I've had it up to here  with you and your bullshit  anyhow!"  That was it for the fighting. It  was also the end for the logging  at: Carrington's that year. Big  Danny spent the night in one of  the bunkhouses. The following  day, Eddie shut the camp down  and old Harry, looking  crestfallen, paid us off.  All at once, we were  unemployed and heading for  Minstrel Island with our gear,  to wait for the Union Boat.  That night, the lot of us, Big  Danny included, celebrated our  freedom in the single hotel's  tiny pub. One more camp was  behind us for better or worse.  At the time, I had no idea  that I was witnessing the dying  days of an era. But the following year, the government imposed a timber-quota system that  favoured the big companies and  made gyppo logging an impractical proposition. One by one,  the raftcamps closed up shop  and the gypsy loggers moved  on.  Twenty-five years later, I had  the opportunity to revisit those  old stomping grounds of my  youth. The once busy waterways around Minstrel Island  were virtually deserted. As we  cruised up Tribune Channel,' I  tried to spot the place where  Carrington's camp had been.  But there was only a patch of  brilliant green alders to mark  the hill where Big Danny Le  Clair once railed arid'lprofaned  against the uncaring sky.  20  ihu  o\��J>  TRAVIS  Coming Aug 28th & 29111  SKA-BOOM  ...'til 10 pm  Male Waiters  OPEN: 8 pm - 2 am g| 6 nights a week  Co**"* Sept. 3  RANDY FISKE  Elvis impersonator  r_��e ot     , <_ hottest *** S\\*e  Advance tickets  AVAILABLE NOW  .ROO  p\us  "fpJVotS  QOl^  aMCaVIPIET  fte  tnert"  n\\eW  tAon.  $at  *W  spe  c\a__  ^"tbere  Yov*  5^a*      aPP*eC*  @ e e e & ��� & @ # _> ���>#>���#  e ��� # .9 e # ��� ���> # e> e e> c* e e # e #  Your guide to  the finest in  area dining  DINING GUIDE  JGibsons Landing]  A listing of  restaurants  and pubs  Tonal o(  the Cwwl  JggL    Roberts Creek  fm legion sr  aO_6t_,     "The Little Legion"  Aug. 28 - 29  LARRY BRANSEN  DINNERS BY MAMIE  $3.00  Every Friday, 5-7 pm  Members & Guests Welcome  BINGO EVERY THURS  At R.C. Community Hall  7:15  Everyone Welcome  The sun was just setting over the horizon as we pulled  into the parking space behind the Garden Bay Hotel. Late  dinners always find me ravenous and I was looking forward to sampling their fresh fish. Luckily, we had reservations, or we would have been out of luck.  The Garden Bay Restaurant is one of those wonderful  places that doesn't try to offer you a selection of  everything from Chinese food to pizza. It offers a  reasonable number of alternatives, each of them a culinary  work of art.  I was torn between, the Oysters Rockefeller and the  Prawns Basil to start with, one of those great situations  where you can't lose. When the five plump prawns were  placed before me, swimming in a cream sauce aromatic  with basil and garlic, I was delighted. My partner expressed similar pleasure with his large portion of Caesar Salad.  The entree selection was more difficult. The fresh fish  selections included Red Snapper baked in garlic butter and  Salmon Wellington. There were various combinations of  seafood and chicken or beef. We settled on New York  Oscar (seafood and hollandaise atop New York steak) and  Lemon Linguini, the pasta special for the day, with an  agreement to trade bites.  Enough can't be said for the quality of the meal brought  before us. The steak was prime, grade A, cooked to absolute perfection. The crab and shrimp on top were fresh  and sweet, blended with the creamy sauce. Each mouthful  was savoured to its fullest.  The Lemon Linguini turned out to be fresh pasta  covered with shrimp and crab delicately spread in a cream  sauce. Seafood at its best.  The generous servings filled up every corner, so we sat  quietly sipping wine and watching a muskrat making an  evening tour of the bay until we were ready for dessert.  The pecan pie looked tempting, but so did the frozen  Grand Marnier mousse. We ordered both, again with a  trade agreement. They were the final perfect touch to a  fabulous meal.  Next time, we plan to make a day of it and sail down to  Garden Bay for dinner. It will have to be soon though, the  restaurant closes around mid-September, and there are  several meals I plan to sample before then.

Last Friday noon in Sechelt  was to be the deadline for  negative votes on revitalization.  At approximately 2 pm, the  Sechelt Municipal Office was  asked for the results but there  was no one there who could respond.  Town clerk Malcolm Shanks  was the official vote counter but  was on holidays. His assistant  had left for the day and when  contacted at her home stated  she would not be saying  anything until she reported to  council at their Wednesday  meeting, but perhaps if the  mayor was contacted at his  business office he would give a  statement.  The mayor was gone from his  office for the day but would be  in the following morning at 8  am. At 9 am the next morning  his office said he would not be  in that day.

This Initiative is being undertaken to coordinate, support and facilitate growth in  Western Canada.  The foundation of the Initiative will be the  establishment of a new economic development  agency located in Western Canada. The agency  will be headquartered in Edmonton with offices  in Vancouver, Saskatoon and Winnipeg.  WHY WE NEED THE WESTERN  DIVERSIFICATION OFFICE  The role of the new office will be to address  the challenge of broadening and diversifying  the western economy.  Clearly, our dependence on the cyclical and  volatile world commodity markets in non  renewable resources, agriculture, forestry and  fisheries leave us vulnerable.  The new agency will work to build on our natural  strengths and develop emerging technologies.  We will use them to create new opportunities  that will expand and stabilize our economy,  create new jobs and inject new capital and  investment into our communities.  A 1.2 BILLION DOLLAR WESTERN  DIVERSIFICATION FUND TO HELP  STRENGTHEN THE WESTERN  ECONOMY  The Initiative funded by a substantial new  capital endowment will put real teeth into  Western development.  Equally important, it means greater access and  input into government by Westerners.  The Western Development Initiative is about a  new spirit of partnership and equal participation  that will build a better future for all of us.  To find out more please call the following  number.  Western Diversification Office  Vancouver  (604) 666-6256 14.  Coast News, August 17,1987  Author Anne Cameron (left) brought a cutting wit to bear on the issue of Canadian Culture and Free  Trade last weekend at the Writers' Festival. ���John Burnside photo  Panel discusses free trade  It was slated as a lunch panel  discussion on the topic "Are  Canada's Writers Worth Protecting?", but all panel  members appeared to be in  agreement with each other.  Judy Wilson, representing the  NDP after MP Ray Skelly was  called back to the House, Gordon Wilson, Liberal and  Howard White, of Harbour  Publishing, all spoke on the  issue of the Free Trade Talks  with solemn words of warning  about selling Canada's culture  down the river.  Writer Anne Cameron pushed the point home even further  with facetious humour and  outrageous comments.  "They've got our fish, our  trees, why not artists and  writers?" she quipped.  "Writers are only a part of it  all."  All four panelists referred to  Premier Vander Zalm's pride in  the fact that he doesn't read,  topping each other with stories  of the premier's indifference to  the literary arts.  On a more serious note, each  speaker presented some important facts to the audience, all of  them firmly convinced that  Canadian culture is on the table  in the Free Trade discussions.  The problem of Canada being a vast geographic area with  a small population base was a  major concern should protective measures be removed and  the content of television, radio  and movies be left to the  marketplace to determine,  where the American public  would dominate.  Publisher Howard White told  the audience, "What the  Americans want is CTV, CBC,  Southam, Macleans, and McClelland and Stewart - they  want the so-called cultural industries and the 10 billion dollar  market they command. These  industries employ 300,000  Canadians, many of whom  would become redundant if the  Canadian product was replaced  with an imported American  one."  Conspicuous by absence was  a representative from the Conservative  party.  ��� APPLIANCE SERVICES ���  EXCAVATING  ��� GEN.

The purpose for which the disposition is required is the quarrying of sand and gravel.  Comments concerning this application may be made to the office of the Senior Land Officer, #210 - 4240 Manor Street,  Burnaby, B.C. V5G 1B2 (File No. 2403277).  ������������2*-_,-..  |t 2o. oo��  J: Editor:  The time is now. Because of  an invitation by Irene Lugsdin  to attend a meeting of the  Forest Advisory Committee in  the SCRD offices August 12, I  decided to attend.  During the meeting, the main  theme of the discussions centred  around the Hillside Industrial  Complex. Much was said about  the possibility of establishing  the dry kiln unit there, also a  dry land log sort and petroleum  tank farm. (I would like to  make comment about these  items at a later date.)  But how all this was going to  take place was based on a program that has been silently going on behind the scene and is  the reason for my letter.  What has been proceeding  very quietly with the full concurrence of the Regional Board  is an application to trade the  Hillside property, owned by  Construction Aggregates &  Associates, for the massive area  of gravel in the general location  of I.R. n 2, and Selma Park.  Unless very strong resistance  is put up by the citizens of  Sechelt we can wind up with a  huge gravel extraction plant  within a quarter mile of our new  hospital and a Trail Bay loading  dock that could operate night or  day.

Rowdies  rile Ritz  Editor:  This is an open letter to the  people who are organizing  baseball and rugby tournaments.  It is 4:33 am Sunday morning  while I write this and I've just  called the police.  I am a motel operator, and it  was against my better judgement to take reservations for  some of your out-of-town  players, but I told my wife  "let's just see what happens,  maybe the last time we just had  a bad bunch."  But with the yelling and  screaming, car horns blowing  and tires peeling out of the  driveway the past four hours,  we have drawn the conclusion  that young people really do not  think about others as they do  their own thing, no matter what  time of day or night it is.  This is one motel operator  who will never again rent to  baseball or rugby people. Their  little bit of money doesn't really  amount to a hill of beans when  it comes to peace of mind while  you're lying in bed trying to get  to sleep at 4:30 in the morning,  or trying to appease your other  guests who are quiet family people.  May I suggest you rent the  arena at the top of the hill in  Sechelt. At least there they can  be with their own kind, and they  can howl at the moon.

I am  involved with gravel extraction  and some may say this is a conflict of interest, but it is not!  My interest has always been  in Sechelt, perhaps one of the  best places to live anywhere.  I would like to remark to my  Indian friends that I realize you  may be anticipating some  revenue from your gravel lands,  but let me say to you this  revenue will not anywhere near  compensate you for lands in the  very near future as development  grows around your beautiful  Selma Park view property.  A massive long term gravel  operation behind you would  hinder the economic viability of  lease income for many years.  Please have a second look at  processing what gravel you have  in your back section, through a  conveyor to a larger operation  at the plant that already exists  away from the downtown area.  A canal is a very distinct  possibility, that could flush out  stagnant Porpoise Bay waters as  well. Even without a canal it is  viable to move your gravel  through the Skookumchuck.  The big cement companies can  easily pay the extra towing cost,  as the price of gravel in the concrete mix is a very small percentage of the total.  The time is now: soon this  unacceptable development  could take place in our community. Thank you for listening.  Victor R.

That's almost 100 per cent over  budget..  For many residents in the  Gibsons area, that news must  raise some r deep concerns,  especially when you consider  the sad state of existing  highways, both locally and  throughout the province.  There are plenty of repair  projects, such as upgrading  highway 101, which are worthy  of attention from this government. Only a small portion of  that $1 billion would have been  sufficient to get that vital work  completed.  Unfortunately, this government has apparently based its  highways policy on a political  agenda, preferring to throw a  blank cheque at the Coquihalla  rather than making sure highways in all parts of BC are  maintained at a safe and  reasonable level.  Improved transportation  links between the lower  mainland and the Thompson-  Okanagan area are a good idea,  but not if they overshadow  essential projects in the rest of  BC.

Hydro introduces Electric Plus, a  unique, money-saving plan to dramatically  reduce your heating costs with clean, efficient  electric heat.  If you are not on natural gas and have an alternative heating system, you can now purchase  surplus hydroelectric power at substantial  savings, nearly 50% off our normal rate.  During those.times when surplus hydro is not  available (approximately 30 days per year, on  average), you simply switch over to your  back-up system.  Regular customers qualify, too.

For businesses, the  same rate of 2.50 a k.W.h. applies to the first  8,000 k.W.h. a month, reducing to 1.80 for  any additional monthly consumption.  How long will I keep saving?  These rates will stay the same until March 31,  1991. Even then, the cost of surplus hydro will  continue to be substantially lower than our  normal rates-though how much lower will  depend entirely on the actual surplus.  How much does it cost to convert?  The cost of installing electrical heating  systems will vary. We advise you to consult  your local electrical or heating contractor for  an accurate estimate.  ElectricPlus  As an incentive for prospective customers,  B.C. Hydro will finance installations up to  $2500 at a special 8.5% interest rate. This  amount is usually more than adequate for  most conversions.  The loan is repayable for periods up to four  years and payments can be conveniently  included with your Hydro bill.  How do I qualify for Electric Plus?  You wire for a new electrical meter which is  provided by B.C. Hydro. Also, the fuel for  your back-up system must be stored on your  property.

Coast News, August 17,1987  ans presented  by Ken Collins  The Sechelt Council committee meeting last Wednesday  August 12 heard two delegations with petitions.  The first was from Therese  Egan, Kay Little and Janet  Dolman, representing the group  that wants to form the  Rockwood Lodge Society to  manage Rockwood Lodge.  They do not want to form a  society, however, and then be  turned down. "We are looking  for a nod of approval," said  Egan.  They have plans to include  the Handicapped Association in  the complex. "We would  manage and they would sublease," Dolman told council, as  she went down the list of groups  that have indicated willingness  to participate with them.  "The weavers and spinners  are keen to set up a loom on a  permanent basis and conduct  workshops for seniors," was  one of the examples Dolman  gave.  "Have you had any overtures  from any musical groups?"  Alderman Craig wanted to  know. "The Classical Music  Society would like to bring people up from Vancouver to give  lessons," he was told. "What  about dancing? ... ethnic dancing?" he asked. "Drama and  dancing instructors have asked  about yearly space," came the  answer.  Alderman Ken Short was  concerned about the group's  lack of projected revenue. "We  have a $68,000 mortgage that  has to be paid come hell or high  water," he said. Mortgage  payments on the Lodge property are about $1,200 a month.  Mayor Koch expressed the  belief that the concept put forward by the group is along the  lines of council's thinking.  The other petition was by  Gordon Wilson, representing  the Regional District Foreshore  Advisory Task Force. He was  soliciting Sechelt's support in  the Berris Study of Sechelt Inlet.  "I have received a letter from  the Premier saying he is in support of the study," said Wilson.  "Sechelt's involvement is  critical." He said Sechelt might  At the EDC  want to contribute with data on  the Tuwanek area, an area he  said he just realized was sparsely  done.  Wilson also expressed confidence in the future funding of  the second phase of the project.  "The Premier and the Minister  of Municipal Affairs gave clear  indication that if we proceed  with Phase I we will get monies  for Phase II," he stated.  "We're going to have to be  stronger players," Mayor Koch  said. "We see the possibility of  an absolute Utopia." He went  on: "If we were allowed to close  the inlet and control the  predators you could put 50,000  fish in that inlet every year.  "Can we have it closed?" he  queried. "Could you slice a  canal in there? . . . What is it  going to take to liven up the  bay?"  Focusing back to Wilson,  Mayor Koch stated at future  Foreshore meetings there would  be two Sechelt aldermen sitting  in, but also indicated a reluctance to spend money on the  project. "We're a little different  in how we spend money because  we have a different way of getting it," he explained. But, he  continued, "We all have to be  players and we all have to play  together." The mayor did not  rule out entirely the possibility  of Sechelt contributing financially, however. In noting the  drastic cut in cost from the  original Berris proposal, Koch  said he believed in doing things  right even if it cost more.  PIC-A-POP Coupon!

For the last four months,  Murphy has been cultivating  contacts in the industry and  promoting the use of the Sun-  Job proposal  The Sunshine Coast Employment Development Society  (SCEDS) is sponsoring another job development proposal  through CEIC for social assistance recipients.  The 22-week programme will be offered to 11 trainees in  the area of silviculture fieldwork. Components offered will  be: industrial first aid, tree planting, juvenile spacing, power  saw maintenance and handling, site preparation, plus other  related skills.  If you are on social assistance and are interested in participating, please contact your social assistance worker.  Final approval is pending, but due to the success rate of the  last programme in providing job-related skills training,  SCEDS is sure this programme will be approved.  Traffic fatality  The second fatal traffic accident in the space of three weeks  on the Sunshine Coast occurred last Saturday in Roberts  Creek. Both vehicles involved in the two-car collision at the  corner of Neilson Road and Highway 101 belonged to local  residents.

A limited, visual portfolio  which Murphy put together has  been put out to the B.C. Film  Commission, four films and  three series. But he expressed  frustration at not having appropriate promotional material  to leave with people.  He outlined some of the steps  the Greater Vancouver Regional  District (GVRD) has taken to  minimize red tape for the film  industry, and told the meeting  the Sunshine Coast is the only  area outside of the Lower  Mainland that is being  marketed along with the GVRD  area.  Murphy has been doing a lot  of the promotion on a volunteer  basis, but he told the EDC that  if they want to pursue the film  industry market, he is going to  need some money for promotional materials, and to cover  expenses.  Before leaving the meeting,  Murphy also suggested another  possible angle. The pool of  technicians is stretched to its  limit, he said, and people are  starting to burn out. He suggested the Sunshine Coast might  be an ideal location for a  technical training program  which would service the film industry.  Committee members were enthusiastic about the idea.  Regional District representative  Jim Gurney pointed out the  financial benefits of having a  lower key, on-going, involvement with the industry.  Gibsons Alderman Bob Maxwell stressed the benefit to  young people, who could remain on the Coast to receive  training in a needed profession.  The Commission voted to  allot Murphy a $10,000 budget  and begin investigation into the  possibility of locating a film  technical training program here.

Vv  , Last week's meeting of the-  Forest Advisory Committeef  received a letter from Lands and^  Forests Minister Dave Parker,,  rejecting their reques| for a tree- {  farm licence for the Sunshine  Coast Regional District.  In it, Parker explained there  is no unallocated timber in the  Sunshine Coast timber supply  area, and said it would be unfair  to existing operators to reapportion the timber supply.  SCRD Chairman Jim Gurney  told the other members of the  committee that, in spite of a  personal meeting with the  minister to explain the purpose  of the application, Mr. Parker  appeared not to fully understand.  In a later interview with the  Coast News, Community  Development Officer Irene  Lugsdin explained the application. She said the Forest Advisory Committee is concerned  that the province's 20-year cutting plan for this area will be adjusted to accommodate increasing pressure by larger logging  companies for more timber.  What is now scheduled to be  removed over 20 years, she said,  might be taken in five years.  The Forest Advisory Committee  wants to ensure that the timber .  supply is taken on a slow,  steady basis. Their intention  was to obtain a tree farm licence  for no other purpose than to en-  Kiln plans  Continued from page 1  had to do it over again, he  would have done it differently.  Pointing to plans of the  Sechelt Indian District for  transporting of gravel to the  Trail Bay waterfront for  loading on barges, he said he  had expected the Regional  District to "lead the protest".  "I can't imagine any worse  tourist deterrent than selling  gravel off the most beautiful  beach on the Sunshine Coast,  right next to the hospital," he  said.  Irene Lugsdin reacted strongly. "We're not supporting it,"  she said. "We're taking advantage of a situation. I've been to  all sorts of meetings, including  the Chamber of Commerce,  and not one person has had the  guts to stand up and speak  against the gravel operation on  the waterfront. But we're not  sanctioning it."  V1  sure that type of management  of> local timber.  In his letter, Parker appeared  to believe the SCRD was interested in going into business  themselves. "It is my feeling  that local governments should  involve themselves in facilitating  economic development," he  wrote, "rather than being  directly involved in entrepreneurial ventures."  The committee agreed to continue exploring ways to  guarantee that the 20-year plan  will be followed.
