The Regional  Board wants municipal support  in applying for an additional  vehicle so the service can be  enhanced.  Alderman Bob Maxwell was  concerned as to whether there  were any abuses to the system at  present. "The administrators  say there is no abuse," reported  Alderman Norm Peterson.  "Even though one or two  people might be "abusing,, the  service is very, very needed,"  commented Mayor Diane  Strom.  -Peterson will be trying to  come up with a cost breakdown  to aid council in making a decision.  Council approved spending  $300   on   a   course   for   the  Aquatic   Supervisor   entitled  'Administrative   Skills   for  On Coast kiln  Recreational Programming' .  Although entirely in favour of  staff training, Alderman Maxwell expressed concern that  council might lose its investment  if an employee was given a better job offer elsewhere  "It is an unwritten, and  sometimes written, law that an  employee is almost obligated to  serve one more year. If they  leave early they must refund the  monies."  It was decided to include the  Sea Cavalcade water sports are made to seem like easy play by the  skilled participants but accidents can happen as was illustrated at  Armours Beach this year.

Clerk-administrator Lorraine  Goddard will also be upgrading  her skills this August. She will  be attending the University of  Washington for. the final one-  7 week program/of a three-part  professional development  course jointly sponsored by the  university and the International  Institute of Municipal Clerks.  * Also at the meeting, Mayor  .,&..- Strom. andw cquncil gave ap-  ff^proVa-lor lofmtr' resist, Miss  Valerie Kettle, to use Gibsons as  the name of the community she  represents in the Miss Nrth  America Beauty Pageant, to be  held in Vancouver, August 15 to  20. It was stated that she was  chosen as a contestant through  a talent contest which she won,  which also awarded her a part in  a move to be made in Hollywood.  Potential investors gather  The Economic Development  Commission (EDC) is looking  for investors interested in putting up a total of $520,000  toward a kiln for the Sunshine  Coast.  At the Kiln Investors Information meeting organized by  the EDC last Thursday, approximately 30 people attending the  meeting were given a financial  breakdown on the costs of the  building and operating of a dry  kiln.  Peter Nield, author of the  kiln feasibility study done by  Carroll Hatch International, explained that the only way in  which a dry kiln would be  financially feasible on the Sunshine Coast would be if it was  located adjacent to and managed by a major sawmill such as  Bayside Sawmills.  Doug Unwin of Unwin &  Associates, a management consultant firm, provided a financial breakdown of costs and  profits for a five year period,  which indicated a total initial investment required of $832,000.  Low interest government  loans would be available for  $237,000, he suggested, with a  further $75,000 being available  from Canada Futures money.  The other $520,000 would have  to be raised from private investors.  . Bayside Sawmills representative Dale Tsuruda was a  member of the panel. He indicated his company is very interested in the dry kiln, which  would fit in well with their expansion plans.  Tsuruda outlined his company's   success   story   in  cultivating a Japanese market  which, he said, is now demanding more of their products  than they can produce. Not only would the kiln, itself, be of  benefit to local operations by  increasing the value of their  products, he said, but Bayside is  interested in providing access to  their markets.  Bayside located on the Sunshine Coast in 1979 and started  with 10 people on the payroll.  Since then they have expanded  to a total staff of 50 people,  which includes their buying and  trading department. There is  literally no competition in B.C.,  Tsuruda stated. The only competition is Japanese mills.  The Japanese demand perfection in their products, and  Bayside has provided that, he  claimed. They now operate two  full shifts and have built a  planer mill on the site.  The establishment of a dry  kiln here would open up even  more markets in Japan, and  there is no doubt that Bayside is  seriously considering a major  investment in the project.  Vic Walters, who has considerable experience in the  forest industry, also addressed  the meeting, stating that he  knew people who were interested in developing a state of the  art sawmill on the Coast a/id in  the development of a dry kiln.  He also said that three million  logs per mdnth could be guaranteed to the Sunshine Coast at  competitive prices.  Sunshine Coast Regional  District XSCRD) Chairman Jim  Gurney outlined the regional  district's pursuit of a Forest  Products Industrial Park, adjacent to a proposed tank farm in  the Hillside area. He said the  provincial government is currently negotiating to purchase a  parcel of land which could be  leased for those purposes.  EDC Chairman Maurice  Egan expressed satisfaction at  the tenor of the meeting.  "There is now more detailed  Noise by-  relief sou  by Ken Collins  Jackson Brothers Logging  has asked Sechelt Municipal  Council for a relaxation of the  noise bylaw so they can operate  an early shift during the hot  weather.  Their petition at the Wednesday August 5 meeting came  about after a resident of  Tillicum Bay complained to the  Bylaw Enforcement Officer.  The complaint was that Jackson  Brothers were starting work  prior to the 7 am time permitted  by the bylaw.  Jackson Brothers stated they  were on voluntary early shift  because of dry forest conditions  and that to comply with the  bylaw they would have to  shorten the work day but still  pay the men for a full shift.  That, they said, would not be  economically feasible.  In their petition, Jackson  Brothers stated: "It is unfortunate that the early shift coincides with the highest tenancy  planning to be done regarding,  the size, location, operational  features of the kiln, financing  arrangements and the screening  of potential developers and investors," he added.  The EDC will be hosting a  follow-up meeting with investors later in August. In the  meantime, interested parties can  contact the EDC at 885-2261.  aw  ght  rate in the adjacent subdivision,  but our only alternative to an  early morning start is a complete shutdown, with the loss of  65 to 70 jobs held by permanent  residents of the Sunshine  Coast." Please turn to page 13  Last month the Lieutenant  Governor of B.C. signed the  Sechelt Indian Government  District Enabling Act, the second of three government acts  which will see the Sechelt Band  become a self-governing entity.  The first, the Sechelt Indian  Band Self-Government Act,  was passed by the Federal  Government in 1986.  In commenting on the provincial bill when it was introduced to the legislative  assembly in April, leader of the  NDP, Ray Skelly said, "What  this act does is not so much  create self-government for the  Sechelt Indiai} Band, because  essentially they come under the  laws of the province and under  the laws of Canada, and the  legislation fairly carefully states  that, as allow the Sechelt Indian  Band to free themselves from  some of the constraints of the  Indian Act which prevented and  impeded the kind of economic  and social development they  wanted to see taking place in  their area, on their lands, lands  which they held under reserve  status up to this point."  Now amendments to both the  federal and provincial legislation are being brought to the  Band membership for ratification which will lead to the  final stage of negotiations. On  August 26, the Sechelt Indian  Band will be voting on these  amendments.  A workshop going into detail  about the implications of each  amendment will be held on  August 17.  Girl Guides stop  a forest fire  Fast action on the part of  some visiting Girl Guides  prevented a serious forest fire at  Camp Olave in Wilson Creek  last Saturday, August 1. The  girls and leaders from Penticton  and North Vancouver sinelled  smoke and then spotted sparks  from the woods early in the  evening.  Mary Huntington, Guider in  charge.of the camp, alerted  caretaker Pat Parker, who called in the alarm. Firefighters  from Sechelt and Roberts Creek  responded, and spon had the  blaze under control, although  they poured water into the  punky soil in the area for the  rest of the night.  The fire might have destroyed  the camp if it had gone unnoticed for even a half hour longer.  The girls and leaders were  evacuated from the Lions Area  campsite, which borders on the  fire location, and spent the  night under the flagpoles by the  beach, returning the next day to  continue their week's camp.  Banners proudly proclaiming the upcoming Festival of the Written  Arts, August 14 to 16, now adorn Sechelt's streets. ���Ken Collins photo  Fifth Written Arts Festival  promises continued excellence  by John Burnside  "Folks, we have ourselves an  institution here," wrote Peter  Trower while covering last  year's Festival of the Written  Arts, and a perusal of the lineup of writers and events for this  year's Fifth Annual Festival indicates that Trower is in no  danger of being proven wrong  in 1987.  Writers such as international  columnist Allan Fotheringham,  controversial poetic dramatist  George Ryga, internationally  renowned   playwright   Tom  Cone headline a two-day line-up  of personalities and events  which will test the endurance  and delight the sensibilities of  the most devoted literary affi-  cianado.  Besides the three names, there  are writers of fantasy and  finance; writers about the  development of a terrorist and  charming upcoast summers;  writers of mystery stories and  filmscripts - all outlining the  challenges and rewards of their  particular craft.  Nor are the writers all; there  will be a two day craft fair  featuring the work of the  talented artisans and artists of  the Coast; panel discussions on  the future of Canadian writing  and publishing in light of free  trade discussions; Great Detective Sunday Lunch, and outdoor salmon barbecue, and  other attractions.  If you haven't already made  your plans, do so without delay.  For most of these attractions  last-minute ticket buying will be  too late.

The past few years in this province have seen real  hardship visited on major segments of society by a  government which professed to be lean and mean as it  steered B.C. back to economic health. That the same  government was spending money in excessive amounts,  virtually squandering it, on pet projects thought to present them in a progressive light to electors is a sad commentary on our wisdom and understanding.  We are not new in this province to the giant  monuments to sitting politicians which have been  revealed to be expensive follies in the fullness of time. It  is not enough that these extravagances become the stuff  of political debate. It has to be recognized that  economic well-being does not follow these flashy mega-  initiatives and a more prudent and constructive way  ahead must become the goal of both parties likely to  have a chance at governing.  Surely the time has come to learn from past errors.  A good program  A very successful government program, by contrast  with the above, is the inexpensive funding for community revitalization. A recent trip through several interior  B.C. communities revealed that almost all show some  signs of recent revitalization in their downtown cores.  Not only does it look good, but it has an influence  beyond the dollars spent as merchants seek to bring  their stores to visual life to match the work being done  by the municipality.  We applaud the revitalization plans for Sechelt's core  area and hope the property owners are encouraged by  the changes brought to Gibsons under revitalization and  seek to emulate or surpass it.  Restructuring  It may put the question of Gibsons' restructuring in  something approaching perspective if we remember that  10 of the 11-person committee which recommended it  were residents of the adjacent areas, that the mayor of  Gibsons is a resident of Area E, and a much maligned  town planner is a resident of Area F.  There is a trading area which surrounds Gibsons and  the questions of whether the municipality boundaries  should more closely match the trading area deserves  reasonable consideration: The status quo is neither  sacrosanct nor necessarily in the best interests of the  Sunshine Coast.  5 YEARS AGO  The Sunshine Coast Regional District has successfully negotiated with Royal Terraces for the lease  of 7010 square feet of office space, and will, if all goes  as planned, be moving its operation on October 1,-1982  to this newly constructed, prestige office/condominium  complex.  The provincial government demands that a quarter of  a million dollars be cut from the 1982 school board  budget.  The board of trustees of St. Mary's Hospital announces that the design for its phase two expansion  has been approved by the Ministry of Health.  10 YEARS AGO  Following a district-wide analysis by the board of the  level of service rendered by our district superintendent,  Mr. John Denley, it is a pleasure to report that the  overall quality of his service has been rated excellent.  The public's view of our school system, moreover, has  improved markedly in the last two years, due in no small  measure to Mr. Denley's interaction with and availabili-.  ty to the community. v  20 YEARS AGO  The big swim from Nanaimo to Sechelt is set to take  place Sunday and will, if weather conditions permit,  start shortly after dawn. This swim, an approximate  twenty miles, was attempted last year by Evelyn  Creelman of Victoria, who was lifted from the water two  miles from the finish at Sechelt.  30 YEARS AGO  The much talked about weather for July 1957 can  hardly go unnoticed, since July was the dullest and wettest ever recorded in Gibsons, with rainfall totalling 3.24  inches against a normal of 2 inches.  Pender Harbour Aquatic Club is putting the finishing  touches on preparations for the 10th annual Pender  Harbour Regatta which goes August 17th.  40 YEARS AGO  Residents.have reason to celebrate in the opening of  their large new wharf, sponsored by the Gibsons and  District Board of Trade.  The use of Russian as one of the major tongut-. in  world commercial practice is forcast by a recommendation made to students by the Department of Commerce  at UBC in the 1947-48 calendar.

This isn't exactly 'light reading'  but then we wouldn't want you  to be TOO relaxed, would we?  I recommend reading on this  subject for a number of reasons, but primarily because I  believe we dare not leave decisions affecting our fate to politicians who are probably too busy  to study the issues thoroughly,  nor should we rely on security  'experts' who may be institutionally blinded. While these are  complex issues, they are readily  understandable given some  study and reflection.  You might want to clip this  for later reference. Many of the  books should be available  through your "public library.**  You might care to request  others.  This week I include books  from 1982 and 1983. Next  week, books from 1984 to 1986.

Beyond The Cold War, by E.P.  Thompson (1982). A series of  articles and speeches by the  dean of the British peace movement seeking to reunite the opposing rhetorics of 'peace' and  'freedom' and to make both a  reality. Also see Thompson's  Protest and Survive (1979) and  The Heavy Dancers (1985).  Stop Nuclear War: A Handbook, by David Barash and  Judith Lipton (1982). A good  book for peaceniks, since it  reinforces arguments against  nuclear arms while giving ways  to promote peace.  Waging Peace, by Kennan  (1982).

Deeply  affecting, graphic, personalized  account of nuclear war, in comic book format.  Arms Race, by Michael  Sheehan (1983).

A  former Lockheed engineer, who  worked on five generations of  US nuclear missiles, outlines the  evidence of first strike preparations.  The Nuclear Casebook, eds.  Stephenson and Hearn (1983).

It is not wit, or powder on the face,  Or Wednesday matinees, or misses ^ clothing,  Or intellect, or grace.  Twelve has its tribal customs. But thirteen  Is neither boys in battered cars nor dolls,  Not Sara Crewe, or movie magazine,  Or pennants on the walls.  Thirteen keeps diaries and tropical fish  (A month at most); scorns jumpropes in the spring;  Could not, would fortune grant it, name its wish;  Wants nothing, everything;  Has secrets from itself, friends it despises;  Admits none to the terrors that it feels;  Owns half a hundred masks but no disguises;  And walks upon it heels.  Thirteen s anomalous - not that, not this:  Not folded bud, or wave that laps a shore,  Or moth proverbial from the chrysalis.  Is the one age defeats the metaphor.  Is not a town, like childhood, strongly walled  But easily surrounded; is no city.  Nor, quitted once, can it be quite recalled -  Not even with pity. ���...._.-^- ��  * Phyllis McGinley  Tale of a sea-going granny  Putting England behind us  by Shirley Hall  We departed Poole just  before dawn. The crossing to  Cherbourg would take about 14  hours. There had been heavy  weather so we had waited for a  day. However, as is often the  case with these two senior  citizens, we were too cautious.  The channel was like a millpond  and we had to motor much of  the way. There was enough traffic to make a good watch essential but it was a pretty dull and  anti-climactic trip.  We did manage to arrive upstream from the harbour entrance. When you have a four  or five knot current and a six  knot boat and you arrive  downstream, you have a problem.  Cherbourg is an interesting  port. There are two harbours,  one naval and one commercial.  Outside the harbours is a  triangular-shaped bay.  It is naturally protected except to the north. Here, there is  a famour breakwater, built during the reign of Louis XVI. It is  over two miles long, 650 feet  wide at the base, and 30 feet at  the summit. The entrances are  on either end of this structure,  with islands beyond the entrances. The scene is spectacular.  We had to clear customs and  immigration. When one goes into a foreign port, the procedure  is to fly the 'Q' (yellow) flag and  wait for clearance before going  ashore. At Cherbourg, nobody  bothered, possibly because we  fly a British flag. The casual atmosphere amazed me. It was  not my previous experience with  French officialdom. We wondered if it was the easing of  restrictions between two common market countries, or if it  was because there were so many  yachts coming and going that all  they could do was spot check. I  presume that, with the recent  terrorist incidents, this port is  no longer so relaxed.  The sun was shining'and it  was a glorious late-June evening. We were thrilled to explore  the first of dozens of French  cities and towns we were to visit  with Mouli in the weeks ahead.  We had no thought of cooking  aboard that night, not with  French cafes nearby.  Following a practice that was  to stand us in good stead many  times, we found a simple place  on a back street that appeared  to be-patronized by ordinary  working people. They had a set  meal^at a modest price and it  was ,.delicious. The appetizer  was pate and the waitress  brought three different crockery  dishes from which we were to  help ourselves. With a basket of  fresh bread and a jug of red  wine, it was so good we'd little  room left for the rest of our  meal.  This was the first of many  memorable experiences in  France and the beginning of an  admiration for the country and  the people that was to grow.  Next day we located the ten  nis courts. As we travelled  through the country, we discovered that every French town,  even quite small ones, had excellent, well-kept sports  facilities. These were not free  and we always paid about four  or five dollars to play. We had  paid in England, too.  The advantages of this system  were obvious. The courts were  in good condition and, able to  reserve ahead, we didn't wait to  play. But, it seemed to us, that  by charging for facilities like  tennis courts, an elitist system  was maintained. One never saw  poor kids fooling around on the  courts. Can you imagine the  outcry if Sechelt, for example,  put locks on the courts and  charged for their use?  Sunshine and tennis tempted  us, but we had a long journey  ahead and our goal was to reach  the 'Med' by October. If we did  not want to rush through the  French countryside, we had to  move on.   .  To be continued...

' Thank you for your July 23,  '���> 1987 letter with enclosed  ] newspaper clipping quoting Mr.  : Gurney.  ��� As solicited, our comments  i follow:  ! 1) By our basic criteria no  ;, 'cheap' material is incorporated  *��� in the Gibsons treatment plant.  rThe problems recently ex-  jperienced at the plant centre  ^around the fact that not enough  < material (more precisely facilities and components) was incorporated in the recent program,  ^mainly as a result of provincial  constraints.  2) In fact, the Town sewage  treatment plant is of a type and  composition well above average  for a sewage treatment system  for a comparable community  and one which can be turned into a truly first class operation by  the orderly addition of desirable  additional components as funds  become available.  3) While unsolicited, our  comments as to the Town water  system would also include the  advice that the asbestos cement  type of pipe used in the 1950's  and 1960's was the best type of  pipe available at the time.  In conclusion we would  suspect Mr. Gurney's remarks  most likely have been misconstrued.  Agris Berzins, P. Eng.  Dayton & Knight Ltd.  Summer of issues  Editor:  The last long holiday  weekend celebrating BC Day  was not a holiday for many people. For my sister and me it was  an ordeal. Our brother, Bill, his  wife, children and grandchildren live in Edmonton  where the series of tornadoes  struck. We finally broke  through to them. Everybody  was safe but other poor people  were not so fortunate, and I  .grieve for them.  Also on that memorable  weekend Bishop Remi De Roo  of Victoria was interviewed on  the weekly Food Show at 8:30  am. He spoke out against  hunger in Canada. "Sufficient  food," he said, "is a human  right. It is fundamentally immoral," he said, "for a country  such as ours, a breadbasket of  the world, to have hungry people. Food has become a commodity of the market place instead of a necessity of life.  .   "It is scandalous," he said,  "that people with money can  fill their stomachs and the poor  ���jmust .fill themselves with the  ferumb's   that   fall   from  their  Ijtables."  An on-going problem had  already been noticed in Edmonton: the plight of numbers of  young people in the province,  some as young as 14 years, who  are homeless and starving with  no alternative but prostitution.  Other watch-dogs are on duty,  across our wide land. A man in  Yellowknife tells of the pollution of the North. There are invisible things which the Royal  Prince and Princess will not  have seen while paddling down  the Thelon River; nuclear and  industrial pollution, and the  passage of US low-flying planes  being permitted to hold their  war games over our North.  Thomas Berger reports from  Fort Good Hope that the US  government intends to drill for  oil in our Canadian North. This  will frighten and disrupt the  movements of caribou herds  and other game upon which the  Dene people depend for food.  So far, this has certainly been  an eventful summer for  thoughtful Canadians to ponder  upon the vital issues of social  justice for all citizens and the  protection of our environment.  ��� ��� Isabel Ralph  Whether Canada?  .���Editor:  '���;   "To be a Canadian citizen  ! means never having to envy any  !other country."  % So stated a commissioner of  [the Yukon on Canada Day. My  ;wife and I have just returned  :from a three week trip to nor-  :thern B.C. and the Yukon. I  want to visit the rest of Canada.  1 am a senior citizen and a landed immigrant. Do I want to  become a citizen? Yes, I do.  ;   For   a  year   I   have   been  pondering how Canada works.  I see a nation involved in continual struggle with sovereignty,  individuals,   small   groups,  unions, businesses, government  and political parties.  Judging  from what Canada is today, it  works. It is tomorrow that worries me.  There should be a No Armaments Party (NAP). The  quickest way to lose national  sovereignty is to play the armament game. A future of armaments will destroy us all. Our  neighbour to the south is a nation mobilized for war. The national debt soars, vitality drains  away. Public health is in chaos.  At the top a military cabal confounds government.  Every person and community  should oppose armaments.  Here, the US naval barge on  Hotham Sound should go. Nuclear submarines for Canada  should be ridiculed from the  public forum.  I am thinking of little Costa  Rica in Central America. Many  years ago they abolished their  army. They have survived and  they are a powerful moral force.  What might Canada do from  the respected position she now  holds?

Roberts Creek Daze is an annual fund raising event involving dozens of volunteers who do  their best to keep the Roberts  Creek Community Hall alive.  We would like to give thanks  to all those volunteers who  made 1987 a year to remember.  For their great musical contribution at the Mr. Roberts  Creek Contest, a big thank you  to David Morgan, Ken Dalgleish and Kevin Shepherd.  To the Master and Mistress  of Ceremonies, Alan Young  and Dianne Evans, a job well  done.

To all those who came to the  family dance on Saturday evening, a big thank you for your  generous donations. These  enable 'Used Guys' to constantly upgrade their equipment  which they provide, free of  charge' to a wide variety of  community events.

Coast News, August 10,1987  BgliilHiilWI  Lots of visitors  Peggy Connor presented a commemorative plaque to the Halfmoon Bay Volunteer Fire Department in honour of 'ten years of  excellent service and building of a progressive volunteer fire department' from the SCRD at their tenth anniversary banquet. Former  fire chief Dave Reid and current fire chief Greg Phelps accepted on  behalf of the fire department.   by Shirley Hall, 883-1154  There are a lot of visitors enjoying our community this summer. I have never seen the parking lot at the Skookumchuck  Provincial Park as full as it was  today, and there are so many  visitors' cars around the village  that we even have parking problems. Next thing we know, someone will be suggesting  meters.  LION'S FEAST  The combination of visitors and  locals at the Lions Club seafood  dinner resulted in a long line-up.  I suppose that word got around  after the dinner in June, for  there was a tremendous turnout. Those of us who got there  Halfmoon Bay Happenings  Fire department marks 10th  by Ruth Forrester, 885-2418  The Halfmoon Bay  Volunteer Fire Department  played host to well over 100  people last weekend, its tenth  anniversary.  It was a whole weekend of  fabulous food and celebration,  starting on Friday evening with  a wine and cheese party at the  firehall.  On Saturday night, Cooper's  Green Hall was packed for a  beautiful dinner which had been  prepared by the firemen's  wives. The huge birthday cake  had been artfully decorated by  Joan Clarkson and was complete with the fire hall logo.  Master of ceremonies Dave  Reid extended a warm welcome  to all and made special mention  of several of the original  members who were there. Those  honoured were Ken Clarkson,  Bob Forrester, Roy Hill,  Clarence French, Gerry Berthelet and Bernie Ackerman.  On behalf of the SCRD, area  representative Peggy Connor  presented a plaque commemorating the occasion and  expressed thanks from all of us  for the dedication and efficiency  of our local fire department.  Fourteen  door  prizes  were*;  donated by several contributors,  including the B & J Store, Sunshine GM, South Coast Ford,  the Golden City Restaurant,  B.F. Goodrich and Gibsons  Building Supplies.  After Saturday night's party  was over, several of the firemen  stayed up all night at the Green  to carry out quite a project ���  the barbecuing of a huge pig!  They had an amazing set-up  of a big water wheel by the  barbecue pit, and the poor old  pig was duly trussed up above  the red-hot fire. By noon on  Sunday it was cooked to perfection and for the rest;of the day  there was as much good food as  anyone could possibly eat.  The weather too was perfect  and it was good to see so many  people, both local and visitors,  enjoying the park and the  beach. The firemen and their  wives proved to be charming  and gracious hosts who made  everyone feel so welcome.  It is quite interesting to think  back on 10 years ago when  mention of a fire department  was first made. There were  quite a few folks who declared  they had lived here for years  and never needed a fire department, and so couldn't see the  need for it. Fortunately, common sense won out and it is evident by the number of fires  which have been taken care of  that we would be in a sorry state  without them.  In the past week they have  been called out three times for  very nasty brush forest fires in  the Redrooffs area, one of  which was big enough to need  the help of water bombers.  These fires were not caused  by lightning; they were clearly  started by someone.  AT THE HALL  Shuffleboard teams are now  being formed for the fall season  at Welcome Beach Community  Hall and there is a need for one  more couple and some spares.  If you would like to join this  fun group, call either Mildred  Chuckrey at 885-5249 or Barbara Grimsey at 885-9860. Do it  now to make sure you will be on  a team.  Don't forget that Saturday  August 22 is the date for the  Welcome Beach Barbecue.

ROAD FIXED  And speaking of complaining: sometimes it pays off.  North Lake residents have been  unhappy about the clouds of  dust from the road. This road  bears not only local traffic but  also all the traffic going up to  the forestry campground at  Klein Lake.  Well, the forestry department  decided to do something about  the situation. They came  around with brochures explaining the substance that would be  used, the chemical magnesium  chloride. It was a very informative pamphlet and I, for one,  appreciated getting it. Then, a  few days later, after giving  anyone who wished to object  time to do so, they sprayed the  road. What a difference!  RETURN TO WORK  The most important news  item is that the men have gone  back to work at the gravel pit  after being locked out since  December. I wasn't there when  the lockout occurred, but I  understand it was due to a poor  market, and not because of  wage demands by the union.  Whatever the reason, I bet  they're glad to get back to their  jobs.  ANNOUNCEMENTS  The Lioness' bingo is this  Wednesday, August 12, at 7:30.  Come out and meet your  neighbours.

Sechelt Seniors  ���Ken Collins photo  Tax comments interesting  by Larry Grafton  In the August issue of the  Elder Statesman, a Vancouver  publication, for those of you  who do not subscribe, Vancouver tax consultant Mike  Grenby makes a few comments  that can well be stored in some  safe place, preferably the brain,  regarding the concessions made  to a cross section of seniors in  the low, medium and high income brackets.  Quoting from his column, he  says "Tax reform means you  should put aside any income tax  you save as a result of the new  rules, to pay for higher sales  taxes in the future". He goes  on to say "As with most federal  budgets, this year's took a 'save  now, pay later' approach". He  warns seniors who are the exception to the rule to be  prepared when tax time comes  around for the inevitable surprise.  He indicated a single person  65 or over, with a $10,000 income, will pay no tax and a couple with total income under  $15,000 typically will pay no tax  either.   He indicates when the  new federal sales tax is applied  everything you buy could well  cost more.  Be prepared!  OUR PICNIC  For those of you who missed  last week's column, this is just a  last minute reminder that the  annual picnic will be held  August 13 in Porpoise Bay  Park.

PRESIDENT'S CHAIR  At our executive meeting on  August 4, due to the resignation  of our 1987 elected president,  Gerry Chailler, in conjunction  with Section 5(b) of our constitution, Mike Timms, our  elected first vice-president, will  take over the balance of the  1987 tenure as acting president.  Mike is doing a fine job for the  Branch. All members wish him  well.  PNETRIP  May Widman (885-5200) has  indicated she is in the process of  arranging a trip to the PNE.  The date, however, is still not  settled, pending information on  which day will be Seniors' Day.  For those of you who wish to  take  advantage  of this  trip,  please phone May to make your  reservation.  THOUGHT FOR TODAY  If nobody cared what happened  to you  And nobody helped you along  If everyone just looked after  himself  And everything went to the  strong  If nobody cared just a little for  you  And nobody thought about me  If all stood alone in the battle of  life  What a dull old world this  would be.  Life is made sweet by the  friends that we meet  And things that in common  we share  We want to live not because of  ourselves  But because of the people who  care.  It's living and doing for  somebody else  On what life's splendor depends  A nd the joy of this life when  you sum it all up ,  Is found in the making of  friends.  Pender People 'n'  Places  Fisheries office stays  by Joan Wilson  Thanks to letters from many  Harbour residents and  fishermen, the relocation of the  Fisheries and Oceans staff in  Pender Harbour to new offices  in Sechelt has been cancelled. .  Jack Heidema showed me a  letter he received from P. S.  Chamut, director of Fisheries  and Oceans' Pacific Region office in Vancouver. Mr. Chamut  wrote, in part: "As a consequence of your letter, and many  others like it, I have reviewed  the proposed relocation and I  share your view that such a  move would be ill-advised. The  majority of the Department's  clients are located in and  around the Pender Harbour  area, and they will not be well  served if the office and staff  were transferred . . .".  We're pleased the office has  been left here, along with Sue  Hahn, Randy Tancock, Grant  McBain and Irene Boyd.  Thanks to everyone who took  the time to write letters to our  government officials. It really  can make a difference.

ANOTHER SAVE  Fast action by a visiting sailor  and quick thinking on the part  of our fire phone ladies kept an  early morning fire in Madeira  Park Estates from doing serious  damage on July 30.  An Australian boater moored  at Madeira Park government  dock spotted the blaze, which  started from a barbecue left too  close to a house, and called  883-2345. He wasn't quite sure  where he was, but our gals soon  figured out exactly where the  fire was, and the men were out  very quickly with the trucks.  I understand that several  firemen suffered from smoke  inhalation during their action.  This underscores how dangerous the work of our volunteer  firefighters really is!  Please be extra careful with  any open fires or barbecues during this lovely hot weather. Burning of trash or slash should be  avoided for the present, the  rains will come soon enough!  --tit rm mi ��� i" -~ *-* -*^��-^^-- ~ ��� * ��� ��� ���-  Quote of the Week  The Baha'i faith regards the current  world confusion and calamitous  conditions in human affairs as a  natural phase in an organic process  leading ultimately and irresisibly to  the unification of the human race in  a single social order whose boundaries are those of the planet.

She was president of the  Sechelt Intermediate Care  Society and on the board of the  Sunshine Coast Golf and Country Club.  It speaks well for Audrey to  know she was the first woman  to be admitted by examination  to the Institute of Chartered Accountants of B.C., and was the  first woman to be a Fellow of  the Institute.  Reverend June Maffin, in her  remembrance of Audrey, spoke  of gathering to pay tribute to  her life and summed up Audrey  as we all remember her. She was  assisted in the officiating by  Reverend John Godkin.  Alice Horsman sang "Ode to  Joy", accompanied by Joan  Scales.  Audrey   leaves   a   sister,  Dorothy Frisby and her family,  David, Claire, Laurie and Ann  Frisby,   and   their   children,  Patricia, Alan, John, Sara and  Ian.  NEW LIBRARY BOOKS  New books will be on display  at  the  library this  Thursday  August 13 from 10:30 am to 4  pm. They were purchased from  a donation by the Vancouver  Foundation, the money to be  used exclusively for children's  books.  Drop in and have a  look.   ^^  Sunshine Coast  PEST CONTROL LTD  .

Uncertainty brings anxious  questions. Will my drive soar  crisp and clean down centre  fairway, well clear of those infernal woods? Will my approach shot run nimbly to the  flagstick? And each first putt  drop into the cup? Will each  shot be greeted with commendation from the other players or  will there be that devastating  stony silence?  This tension is seldom eased  until Number 19 hole, unless  some unusual event occurs.  And one did, last Thursday  morning, August 6, when a tee-  shot on Number 3 fairway sent  the ball rising gracefully aloft in  the general direction of the sand  trap. The direction of the ball  changed in its first great bounce  to the green, and then on it went  briskly for 20 feet or more to  fall directly into the cup.  A hole-in-one! Ten astonished witnesses shouting joyfully.  o All spirits were uplifted then  i[ and later. The stony silences  g. bothered noone the remainder  ^  of the round.  S      Thankyou, Ray Phillips, for  ���f that true shot���and may you  3  soon cash in on your lottery  '   tickets!  GREAT LUCK  Still on the theme of good  luck, we report a 29-hand in  crib.  Kathy McPeake, who is just  learning the game, was dealt the  Jack of Clubs ^nd three fives.  The five of clubs was turned up.  ' 'I had no idea what the hand  signified," she said, "until it  came time to count."  Jim Munro, who was  teaching her the game of crib,  said,"I've been playing crib for  40 years and have yet to be dealt  that top-scoring hand."  FISHING DERBY  Despite the lack of prior announcement, the kids' fishing  derby at the Gibsons dock was  attended by 50 or more on the  Sea Cavalcade Sunday.  The Gibsons Wildlife Club  plans to continue this annual  event which will now be called  the Fred Holland Kids Fishing  Derby.  Some of this year's winners:  Mike Larsen, a rod and reel for  the biggest fish; Kevin  Penonzek, a fish-weighing scale  for the most fish caught by a  boy (22 of them); and Andrea  Larsen, a weighing scale for the  most caught by a girl (11 of  them). Any name get missed?  Do let us know.  Gary Berdahl, president of  the Wildlife Club, says the rebuilding of the outdoor range to  meet the safety standards required is now under way.  Volunteers for work parties are  needed. New members are  welcome.  JARVIS REUNION  A family reunion held last  holiday weekend in Roberts  Creek brought 92 people  together from Edmonton,  Calgary, Lethbridge, Dawson  Creek, the Okanagan and the  Lower Mainland.  "This was a gathering of my  family, the Jarvises," said Joan  Quarry. "And for the first time,  this many of us have been all  together since we were children  in Hudson Bay Junction,  Saskatchewan, where our father  had a general store."  The family gathered at Barry  Quarry's place on Lynwood  Crescent off Lockyer and spent  a couple of pleasant days renewing acquaintances and, for  many cousins, meeting for the  first time.  Members of the Quarry family attending: Bill and wife Mary  (Lamb) and family, and Trevor,  all of Dawson Creek; Brad of  Victoria; sister Denise Lee of  Sechelt; and dad Pat Quarry of  Keremeos.  The youngest family member  in attendance was a one-month-  old baby boy, and one of the  most senior, Joan's sister  Mildred of West Vancouver,  who received the well wishes of  everyone for her recent 70th birthday.  ELPHI REUNION  Elphinstone's   graduation  class of 1967 held their reunion  the weekend of August 1 and 2.  l^��7-<7  886-2425 .. XoeS^Frri. J0-*.  "Our first reunion," said  Merrilee Mulligan, one of the  organizers, "and for some it  was the first time in 20 years to  meet others of the class again.  There were many happy  recollections and a very friendly  air about the whole weekend.  Noone wanted to say  goodbye."  Among the grads' recollections was the feeling of desolation when fire almost destroyed  Elphinstone some six years after  their graduating. Least fond  memory of many was the daily  bus rides of over 30 miles.  Others said their fondest  memories were of teachers  Mary Hercus and Les Petersen.  Still others remembered lunches  at the chip stand, the noon-hour  mixers, Mrs. Day's fun discussions, being awarded 'the Silver  E', Fridays at dismissal, and as  one said, "Too many to mention."  Members and spouses of the  teaching staff who attended  were the Potters, Yablonskis,  Rankins, Archers, Smethursts,  Foxalls and Turners. Stan  Truman came from Victoria  and Jean Fallows and Cloe Day  sent greetings.  Two grads travelled from  Ontario, one from Alberta, and  others from distant B.C. points.  As well, there are '67 grads who  live on the Sunshine Coast.  Master of Cermonies was  Mike Skellett; dinner speakers  were Alice Tickner (nee Potts),  Norman Blain, and W.S. 'Syd'  Potter, principal in 1967.  The organizers wish to thank  especially the Shop Easy for the  cake in black and gold,  decorated with the Elphinstone  cougar and the Centennial symbol; and the Super Valu for coffee and doughnuts; and the  other merchants for door  prizes.

Rose breeders are retracing  the steps that led to roses as we  know them today, in an attempt  to capture the beauty of the  old-fashioned roses with the advantages of modern hybrids.  It would seem that Gallica  roses originating as far back as  1000 BC became fashionable in  France in the 18th century,  where the superb shape and colour of the blooms made them a  great favourite. These were  followed by others, like the  Alba, Damask and Moss roses,  increasing the range of flower  shapes, colour and perfume.  But they all had one disadvantage ��� they flowered only  once a year, and then for a short  time.  Then from China'came the  famous China rose. The flowers  were small, and they were not  entirely hardy to our climate,  but they had the great merit of  perpetual flowering.  There was a period of intense  excitement, when the rose  breeders attempted to incorporate the perpetual flowering  characteristics into the older  varieties. But inevitably the concentrated breeding programme  affected the shape of the  blooms. Gone were the old-  fashioned cabbage shapes and  the charm of the single flowers,  to be replaced by the more  pointed, sparser-petalled forms  of our modern hybrid teas.  Now, aware of the return of  interest in the older varieties,  rose growers have a breeding  programme that retracts the  steps of those old breeders,  travelling down the same path  but in the opposite direction. It  takes seven or eight years, and  thousands of man-hours, to  produce maybe four, five or six  new varieties���-but in the end it  pays off.  Most Chrysanthemum  plants, except spray type, are  disbudded to obtain larger  blooms: disbudding is nipping  off the side shoots.  We hope your camera is handy to take those garden photos  of portions of the garden these  sunny days. There's still time  left. The contest closes  September 12.

It is sponsored by the West  Howe Sound Recreation Advisory Committee with  assistance from the Town of  Gibsons and Challenge '87. But  Ms. Koponen does not want  some of the behind-the-scenes  people to go unnoticed.  "It wouldn't have happened'  at all this year without the help'  of Lorraine Goddard," she  said. Even though the camp was  Koponen's brainchild, she  worked last year with only one  other person and with no funding for a salary.  This year she has funding for  herself as well as counsellors.  "I have time to do a much  better job," Ms. Koponen said,  referring to the -setting up and  organizing of activities. "We  don't babysit here, we; have  structured activities."  Koponen is also appreciative  of support from local  businesses. Food stores contribute drinks and the Alibi  Wahoo volunteers its van  regularly.  Harmony  Hall  by Gladys Coates  Nothing happening at Harmony Hall, but that doesn't  mean that our seniors are not  busy. , Brothers Park was the  scene for some very lively ball  games until the past few weeks.  We had as many as 24 eager  players during May and June.  The age range was between  60 and 85, and the performance  was quite creditable. Cecil,  Jack, Joe and Bernie made the  fielders work, and some of the  ladies had power at the bat.  Where are you all now? There  are still people anxious to play,  and we will be there on Wednesday at 10 am.  I am sure all enjoyed the  marvellous Sea Cavalcade,  which started off with a really  great parade. Gibsons is looking  beautiful this summer, with the  display of flowers and hanging  baskets. This has to be one of  the beauty spots of the world.  After touring through parts of  Washington, Idaho, Montana,  Alberta, Wyoming and the interior of B.C., home at Gibsons  was beyond compare.  Congratulations to Noni Hill,  the Sea Cavalcade Golden Girl,  and to Jennifer Earwaker, the  Queen for '87.  Best wishes for improved  health go to Isabelle Barry, who  has had a session with surgery.  Also to Don Myton; hope you  have a speedy recovery.  To all who are not enjoying  good health, our hopes and  prayers are with you.  We meet again in Harmony  Hall Tuesday September 1 at  1:30. See you there!  Teens get  Cavalcade  consideration  by Ken Collins  Gibsons Mayor Diane Strom  is pleased with the results of Sea  Cavalcade but she registered  some concern over the lack of  activities for older teenagers.  "They should be able to have  a dance," she said, pointing out  that Chris Danroth allowed a  number of youths to use the  underground parking lot at  Gramma's for an impromptu  dance hall. "All they had was a  ghetto blaster," Strom said.  Sharon Craig, co-operator of  Chorizo Kitchen, which is part  of the Gramma's complex, also  noted the need for youth activities, but is not entirely sure  the town was not close to a  disturbance Saturday night  when about 30 youths congregated in front of and across  the street from her establishment, under the watchful eye of  the police.  "I had to go out and pick up  several beer bottles," she said,  adding that people, including  youths, expected the blowing up  of the Sea Cavalcade boat  signaled the start of an exuberant celebration.

NEST LEWIS  iie^ 10.  r  Coast News, August 10,1987  by Arline Collins  Choir director Roger Demagnee puts the Paris Boys Choir through  their paces at the Twilight Theatre in Gibsons last Tuesday evening.  These boys have performed almost nightly on their rigorous tour  and were well received locally. ���Ken Collins photo  Boys' choir delights  ecuting their thirtieth performance of this program in one  month.  Just August 2, they had performed in Santa Cruz, California. The fatigue most certainly  had effect on the quality of their  presentations. Some pieces  displayed tuning flaws and concentration errors such as entry  mistakes and sliding into notes.  When one thinks of boys'  choirs, one needs only to mention the Vienna Boys' Choir or  the many choirs of England and  Wales or, for that matter, Vancouver's own Boys' Choir, to:  remember the purity of sound,  the floating non-vibrato, and  airless techniques developed by  those conductors.  The Paris Boys' Choir displayed a totally different approach in the manufacture of  their sound. Singing with 'full  rounded' voice, escaping breath  was intermingled with their total  sound. The effect was to make a  30 voice choir sound multitudinous in fortissimo (very loud)  passages and to make the  pianissimo (very soft) passages  totally and wonderfully blended  like a 'fluffy white cloud  floating.'  After intermission, the boys  doffed their blazers for coloured T-shirts and white slacks  and took us on a European tour  of classical secular (non-sacred)  music, again starting from the  early 1500's and moving  through to the 1980's with a  French folk-song medley called  the Jardin De France.  The Mayor of Paris sent  them out to be emissaries of  good-will and bring musical  pleasure to all who hear them.  They definitely fulfilled this  role. We had a very entertaining  'Bringing music and good  will to many destinations' was  the slogan printed on the Paris  Boys' Choir information booklet. I counted about 33 people  on stage ranging in ages from  nine years old to approximately  24 years, not including Roger  De Magnee, the choir director.  He was born in 1924 and  studied with renowned composers such as Darius Milhaud  and Francis Poulenc.  The first half of[Jhe. performance was dedicated; to sacred  choral works beginriing with  16th Century, Monteverdi's  Cantate Domino and progressing through ten pieces to 20th  Century, Darius Milhaud's  Babylone.  By intermission one could not  help but observe the incredible  stamina exhibited by these performers. What stamina! The  boys were standing smartly in  their crested blazers doing their  best to withhold yawns while ex-  Roberts Creek  Sft LEGION ST  H@gS     "The Little Legion"  Aug. 14- 15  GOOD TIMES  Aug. 28 - 29  LARRY BRANSEN  DINNERS BY MAMIE  $3.00  Every Friday, 5-7 pm  Members & Guests Welcome  BINGO EVERY THURS  At R.C.

They  were friendly enough and it was  a refreshing change from the  constant company of loggers.  Most of the Alert Bay Natives  worked on the fishing-grounds  in preference to the woods. I  guess they had more sense.  Towards closing time, the  fishermen asked me the inevitable favour. I was well  aware of the law but they seemed like good enough guys and I  decided to take the gamble.  They left first. After a decent  interval, I bought the case of  beer they'd given me the money  for and met them outside. They  thanked me with wide smiles.  "You come down to the boat  with us," one of them urged.  "We're having a big party."  By this point, I was beyond  caution. I fumbled my way with  them down a murky ramp and  along a slippery float to where a  large seiner was moored. There  were several other young Indians aboard, some of them  girls. A good deal of beer had  been consumed already. A  jubilant mood prevailed and my  presence was accepted without  question.  The party began to get noisy  and   somewhat   out-of-hand.  There was much singing, cursing and laughing. One of the  girls took a shine to me and sat  on my knee. No one seemed to  care. "You be nice to that guy,  he do us a big fayour," chuckles  one of my bar companions.  Then one of his friends burst  in with a look of alarm on his  face. "Hey, we got to get rid of  this booze! The cops are coming!"  There was an immediate flurry of activity. Portholes were  opened and bottles hit the chuck  with faint splashes. Beer cases  were shoved under bunks and  into the bilge. There was the  rough efficiency of long practice  about it all.  I just sat there, jolted sober  by the utter impossibility of my  position, cursing myself for a  damn fool. I'd heard of guys  getting six months in the pokey  for supplying to Indians.  The friendly Native girl  realizes my predicament. "You  better hide on the bunk under  the blankets," she said. "We  say you're sick."  I felt sick. I did as she said  and lay there trying not to  breathe.  Two cops clumped aboard  and poked around a bit.  "Who's in that bunk?" asked  one of them to my horror.  "That my sister," said the  girl innocently. "She not feeling  too good."  "I don't wonder," the cop  commented sarcastically, but  thankfully, he didn't investigate.  The Indians had covered their  tracks well and the officers  found nothing but a couple of  empty bottles.  "Well, you got away with it  this time," the other cop admitted, "but if we catch who's buying' you people booze, we'll  have his ass!"  Then, to my infinite relief,  they left.  To be continued1,!.

All the new books will  be on display this Thursday.  -Penny Fuller photo  Rhythms of Life  On August 11, an exciting exhibition guest curated by Mick  Henry opens at the Arts Centre  in Sechelt. Known in past years  by many long time residents as a  potter, Mick has been collecting  bridge images for the last 13  years.  The summer film series continues with Claude Jutra's stunning portrayal of an emotionally disturbed boy, based on Anne  Cameron's book, Dreamspeaker.  The boy escapes an institution and flees into the forests of  Vancouver Island where he is  befriended by an Indian  'shaman', ably played by  George Clutesi, who with ancient rites attempts to help the  boy control his terrors.  The film is a poignant glimpse into the dark side of society's  inability to deal with some of  the more serious forms of  adolescent pain.  On the same program is  Wrestling, one of Jutra's first  films.  Arts Centre, Friday, August  14, 8 pm.

Astrologically  there are some interesting  aspects on those two days,  which have been referred to as  'a window in time'.  The Sun, Mercury, Venus  and Mars will all be sitting  within a few degrees of each  other in the sign of Leo, which  rules the heart. They form one  corner of a triangle, with the  other two corners formed by the  location of Jupiter and Uranus.  In astrology, the formation  7 of a triangle indicates the flow-  : ing of great creative energy between the planets involved. In  this particular triangle in the  sky, the energy flow indicated  includes Sun (heart), Mercury  (head or intellect), Mars  (masculine   energy),   Venus  .. (female  energy),   Uranus  (individuality,   revolution   and  '��� freedom),   and   Jupiter   (phil-  " osophical ideals).  On top of this triangle, is  ��� another, composed of Neptune  (spirituality), Pluto (death and  .rebirth), and the Moon (emo-  _ tions and intuitions). The end  ; result of all those aspects is that  ' a huge six-pointed star is formed across the heavens by the  angles of those planets.  According to the Mayan calendar,   this   two   day   period   .  marks the entrance to a five  year   period   of   purification  which   in   turn   prepares   the  world for the last brief stage of  reality as we now know it, en-  7;ding on December 21, 2012.  The Hopi religion also specifically points to August 16 and  17, 1987 as a major transition  -stage into what is called 'the  :Fifth World'.  However, this has gone far  beyond a few isolated native  groups. All over the world on  these days, thousands of people  will be gathering together in  festivals, conferences, and  prayer meetings, the belief being  that it is essential during these  two days to act as human 'receivers' for the harmonic  energies that will be directed  towards the earth. s  Specifically, between 5 am  and 6 am (our time) on August  16, people will be meditating  and praying, opening them-  , selves in love and trust to that  universal plan.  This is a very special place we  live in, and perhaps it is time  that we try some of that 'power  of positive thinking' (or feeling)  on the good old earth. Surely  anyone who lives here can find  an hour's worth of things to be  grateful for and to love.  I believe it will make a difference if on August 16, between 5 and 6 am, you sit in  prayer or meditation, or simply  reflecting on all that you love  about the earth and humankind, trusting higher powers to  heal all wounds.  : The following prayer, or invocation, has been translated  into many languages and will be  Hours  '"esday  Gibsons  Pub*c Library  Wed  "esday  jWday  Saturday  STORYTj  1ME  1:30.4Pm  U '  :00-  Wed.

Poached salmon in wine sauce, red snapper in tomato-dill  sauce, seafood bisque with a touch of Pernod, steamed mussels  in the chef's own special white wine sauce. We even had a choice  of King Clip. What is King Clip you ask? We asked and found  out that it is a bass-like fish imported from Australia. What  would we do? We were so hungry our stomach's were turning  flip flops with expectant appeasement just reading the menu.  We could see the picnic tables around the barbeque pit and  just a bit further on the wharf bobbed with several boats safely  tied up. Yes, one day we would treat ourselves to a little  decadence by sailing into Lord Jim's, tie up at the wharf and  walk up the path for a delicious dinner. Of course, it would be a  good idea to make reservations if you wanted a window view  table.  Here it comes now. Our appetizers. My Caesar salad is  monstrous. It's a good thing I didn't order the very tempting  clam chowder with the millions of baby clams and the special  cream, but if I had, I would have had a meal right there for a  very reasonable price. I didn't even want to taste the flavourful  escargots in mushroom caps that my partner in gluttony had  ordered. He did have time to tell me that they were delicious.  Now came two huge plates with our steaming hot entrees. The  lamb with a dijon mustard sauce and mint on the side was a dish  I just had to taste. It was juicy and succulent. How could I be so  ordinary and order a chicken breast stuffed with black forest  ham and cheddar cheese covered in white wine sauce?  I took my first bite and savoured the flavour. You bet. It was  a wonderful choice. I finished every last morsel and scooped up  what I could of the sauce that was remaining.  A very interesting, pleasing touch to our tastebuds was that  the baby potatoes had fresh mint sprinkled on them. A great  idea which I look forward to tasting again when we return to  Lord Jim's.  After our Strawberries-Grand Marnier topped with luscious  real whipped cream and the fresh fruit crepe we were ushered up  the steps to the lounge where two very talented musicians entertained us with guitar synthesizers. What a pleasant way to drink  my coffee!  Thank you Lord Jim's for an especially fine night of dining  pleasure. Next time you see me, I'll have just tied up old Wild  Oranges (we even name our boat after food) and saunter into  your hands for another gourmet dining adventure.

But that's exactly what has been achieved with a  $100,000 Industrial Growth Fund Systematic Withdrawal  Plan since December of 1967.  This example is based on a one-time investment of  $100,000, and a withdrawal each month of $750 (to total  $171,000).    .  The $809,739 left is a result of the magic of compounding - and the superior management of Mackenzie Financial Corporation which has helped Industrial Growth Fund  grow by a total of more than 2500% over that period (an  average annual compound return of more than 18%).  Of course you choose the amount you want to invest  -and withdraw (income is electronically and automatically  credited as capital gains - so you pay no tax for up to  $100,000 over your lifetime.

Ilingham competes  n Regina  by Ken Collins  Jeanine Ellingham and her  thoroughbred gelding Whirling  Dervish will be competing at the  Western Canada Games in  Regina this month.  This Lockyer Road equestrian was one of four individuals chosen to represent  B.C. in the event competitions  on Aug. 13, 14 and 15.  An "event" is a test of endurance and versatility of both  horse and rider working as a  team. "It is not an area of  riding you can buy," says Mrs.  Ellingham. She works about  two hours a day with Whirling  Dervish, regardless of weather.  The Event begins with the  almost sedate Dressage, where  the rider puts the horse through  a series of exercises demonstrating the horse's natural  movements a well as its obedience to the rider.  Then there is the endurance  phase, starting with a two-mile  course that must be trotted or  cantered within a predicted  time. It is a warm-up for the  steeple-chase, where the horse  must jump through four to six  foot hedges at high speed. Then  there is another predicted-time  course and a vet check before  the cross-country.  This is a course that is  carefully walked the day before.  It also has jumps and the  quickest route is often the  hardest side of the fence so  strategy must . be carefully  calculated.  But it's not over yet. There is  still another day ahead. This  comprises of more jumping only this time it is in a stadium.  How will she do? "I have an  advantage," she says, explaining that our local geography of  hills lends itself well to endurance training. But win, lose,  or draw, just being there is quite  an accomplishment.  Pender Golf news  by Pat Mitchell  The highlight for our week  was the Ruth & Einar Norman  Tournament for the novice lady  golfer!

Congratulations to Marge and to Jessie  too.  Ruth Norman arranged for  all the ladies to have champagne  and orange juice. Ruth  presented the cup to Evelyn and  had made a lovely flower arrangement for the runner-up. It  was a perfect day for golf and  everyone had a great time. It  took place on August 6 (Ladies  Day).  The same day five members  took part in another Pin  Round. The results of the Pin  Rounds will be made known at  our Fall Luncheon in October.

Rock climbing park  The Federation of Mountain  Clubs of BC, a non-profit  organization, is trying to permanently protect Canada's  most popular rock climbing  area, the Smoke Bluffs at  Squamish, B.C. by creating a  new park reserve. As part of  this plan, the FMCBC has purchased 8 acres of land at the  Smoke Bluffs, and is now trying  to raise the $100,000 needed to  complete this new park project.  A new fundraising venture is  underway in which two free ten  day cruises in the South  Moresby area of the  Queen  Charlottes are offered as first  prize. This prize also includes  two airline tickets, Vancouver-  Queen Charlotte City return.  There are many other prizes,  including a day of rock climbing  with Canada's number one  climber, Peter Croft.  Only 2,000 tickets will be  sold.  Public support for this campaign can create Canada's first  rock climbing park.  For more information call the  Federation of Mountain Clubs,  687-3333.

Sechelt and noise by-law  Continued from page 1  Council has complied with a  relaxation of the bylaw but as  Alderman Craig stated, "Given  the responsibility we have to the  residents, we expect the company to utilize this privilege as  little as practical."  "The company, I'm sure, will  practice restraint," said Mayor  Bud Koch. He further indicated  he would keep a personal eye on  the situation.  It was Alderman Len Herder  who wanted to ensure all alternatives had been explored. "Is  there such things as chain saws  being operated at early hours?"  Graduate  he asked Jackson Brothers  representatives. When answered  in the affirmative he further  questioned, "Could you not  have an area back in the bush  where trimming could be  done?"  That would be difficult  because of the way logs are scaled and upgraded for export, explained representatives. Herder  then arranged for an on site inspection this week so he can  have a first hand look.  Also dealt with at council was  the third and final reading of  the Sechelt Official Community  Plan By-law 22 and the appoint  ment of Alderman Ann Langdon as Acting Mayor for  August and September.

Hiliegonda Liberta Van  Swieten of Gibsons has successfully completed the  Graduate Nurse refresher program offered by the Open Learning Institute.  After being away from the  field of nursing for some time,  Ms. Van Swieten recentiy enrolled in the OLI program which  allowed her to study at home  and a clinical agency in the  region.  The full-time program was  designed to prepare nurses like  Ms. Van Swieten to re-enter  nursing employment with confidence and to provide the skills  to keep pace with ongoing  . changes in nursing.  Her studies began with a  month-long prerequisite review  followed by new course material  based on a self-care model of  mursing practice. She completed her home-study lessons  with the help of a nursing tutor  available via toll-free telephone.  Two months of clinical experience augmented the home  study periods and a final exam  rounded out the program.  SEA CAVALCADE '87  LOTTERY PRIZES  GRAND PRIZE WINNFR?

Almost entirely self-  educated, his talent and ambition were such that they enabled  him to transcend his improvident beginnings and become a  literary giant. Hardy had  achieved fame as a novelist by  the time he was 35 but all his  greatest accomplishments lay  ahead of him. It is this most-  fruitful period of his career that  poet/critic Robert Bittings has  chosen to examine in his superb  study, Thomas Hardy's Later  Years (Atlantic Monthly Press).  The book opens in 1877 and ���  follows Thomas Hardy through  the final 50 years of his long,  productive and oddly-tormented life. The first two decades of  this period would see the pro  duction and publication of such  watershed novels as Tess of the  D'Ubervilles; Far From the  Madding Crawd; The Wood-  landers and Jude the Obscure.  All these books drew heavily on  scenes and characters drawn  from Hardy's meagre beginnings.  Hardy's past was both the  wellspring of his material and,  as his social position rose, an increasing embarrassment to him.  This love/hate relationship with  his peasant roots gave rise to  dichotomous feelings that affected all areas of his life.  Thomas Hardy's marriage to  his first wife, Emma, began as  an idyllic love-match that  gradually deteriorated as the  years went by.  Emma aspired to be a writer  herself, and was not without a  certain talent, but she was fated  to live in her famous husband's  shadow. As they grew older,  Hardy began to pay romantic  attention to a series of much-  I  i  25% off  >.v.v CLOTHING  Including Socks  TRAIL BAY SPORTS  Trail Ave v&CoWrfe  SECHELT. 885-2512  I- OPEN SUNDAYS 10 4    FRIDAYS   TIL $ PM  younger women writers, straining the marriage to its limits.  Literary critics were a pet  hatred of Hardy's throughout  .his career. Since7.spme of his  novels were savaged unmercifully, these feelings were not  entirely unjustified.  When what was to be his  final novel, Jude the Obscure,  received a particularly brutal  lambasting, largely on grounds  of 'obscenity' which would  seem ludicrous today, Hardy  threw up his hands. He turned  his back on prose altogether and  vowed to devote the rest of his  life to poetry.  Hardy kept his word and  entered the 20th Century as a  full-time poet. It was a move  unprecedented in literature.  Hardy had certainly written  some poetry over the years but  it had never been his major  creative outlet. Now, however,  he turned the full force'of his  talent to this more demanding  craft and, amazingly, went on  to produce some of the finest  poems in the English language.  Although Hardy and his  wife, Emma stayed together until her death in 1912, they were  virtually estranged in her final  years. By this time, Hardy was  seriously enamoured of his  long-time protegee, Florence  Dugdale, an aspirant writer, 30  years his junior.  Although he suffered great  remorse after Emma's death  and wrote some of his finest  poems in her memory, the  writer duly married Florence  after a decent interval had  elapsed. She remained with  Hardy until his own death in  1926 at the age of 87.  Hardy continued to produce  poems of high calibre and  metrical ingenuity until his very  last days. A few years before his  death, he made one last foray  into prose in the form of an  autobiography. Unfortunately,  still sensitive about his threadbare childhood, Hardy attempted to rewrite some parts of his  life, making the book little more  than a literary curiosity.

August 10,1987  by Sue Winters  John Denver highlighted the Stein Valley Alpine Festival held last  long weekend.     ���Sue Winters photo  Back from three glorious  days of mountains, good clean  water, and air filled with the  energy of 1500 people ��� people  who were dedicated to purifying  and preserving Mother Earth  for a sustainable future for all.  The agenda included many  Indian leaders from the Hopis  to the Haidas, bringing their  own cultures' blessings and  rituals to the site to enhance our  awareness of the all-  encompassing depletion and  rape of the earth, by loggers and  by all of us.  We spoke together; many of  the audience lending their voices  to the scheduled speakers. None  was more important than  another, as individuals from  Guatemala, New Zealand,  U.S.A., Germany and many  other countries voiced similar  concerns and empathy for the  plight of the wilderness, the  globe and human rights.  For some, it was a political  arena;  for others, a reprieve  from the city; but for all it was a  rejoining man to man, and man  to the Source, the Creator.  This became the real  message, the real link. For in  nature, the flow of creation  connected us all to Itself. The  trees spoke to us and we became  aware of the 10 years it would  take for the meadow to grow  back after we had walked on it.  And we realized how little it  takes to destroy such a fragile  piece of the environment, and  indeed how much we do to promote the daily destruction of  the planet by our over-  consumerism.  Those of us that came only a  little concerned for our planet  and our fellow humankind left  embracing a new attitude and a  new commitment to limit our  consumption, to work towards  bioregionalism, and to do  whatever it takes to preserve the  old growth forests, be more self  sufficient, and act in a manner  truly in tune, not oblivious, to  the environment.

Editor:  A friend living in Gibsons  sent me a copy of your issue of  July 20, 1987. In doing so, he  drew my attention to an article  on Bills 19 and 20 by Socred  MLA Harold Long. In that article, I am quoted as follows:  '"Sickened and ashamed' by  the proposed legislation said  CUPE official Jack Phillips  (Vancouver Sun, October 3,  1973 news story)".  Your readers will recall that  my position was in line with that  of the trade union movement as  a whole, as shown by your  quotations.  It is not my intention to intervene in the debate between  Harold Long and Howard  White, because I am retired.  However, I would like to set the  matter straight in terms of the  relationship between the B.C.  trade union movement and the  NDP, with specific reference to  the B.C. Federation of Labour  in 1973.  On November 16, 1973, I  wrote as follows in the Pacific  Tribune: "In the opinion of this  writer, the position of most top  leaders in the Federation and its  affiliates can be summed up as  follows: We will continue our  connection with the NDP, but  we will not accept the Labour  Code in its present form any  more than we accepted the  Mediation Services Act (Bill 33)  under the Socreds.  Further, we reserve the right  to be critical on any issue where  there is a serious discrepancy  between Federation policy and  the policy of the government.  That was the policy which  united the Convention". This  was in reference to the  November convention of the  B.C. Federation of Labour.  It should further be recalled  that the provincial convention  of the NDP held in the same  month was also critical of the  government on this score.  In balance, the NDP labour  legislation was much less than;  what was legitimately expected  from an NDP government enjoying wide support from working people. Bills 19 and 20,  enacted by the Vander Zalm  government, in the face of  adverse public opinion exten  ding far beyond the trade union  movement, is much more  drastic in terms of coercive  power that can be used against  free trade unionism.  I stand where I stood in 1973.  Organized labour must always  advance its own program as  adopted in convention, irrespective of the government in  power. This does not mean that  labour can afford to be  disinterested as to which party  forms the government. It does  mean that no government - even  supported by organized labour  -can still be given a blank cheque.  In closing, I wish the trade  union movement all the best in  its current opposition to a very  bad piece of labour legislation.  Jack Phillips  Province's responsibility on foreshore  Editor's Note: A copy of the  following letter was received for  publication:  The Premier  The Honorable  William Vander Zalm  Parliament Buildings  Victoria, B.C.  I am writing to express my  concerns about the apparent  reluctance of your government  to aid in the funding of required  and essential foreshore studies.  Enclosed you will find an article  from our Coast News newspaper which indicates that your  government will not participate  in funding of an important  foreshore study requested by  the Foreshore Task Force.  This study is crucial not only  to protect the environment of  the Sechelt Inlet but also to see  that the inlet is preserved for a  multitude of other uses which  uncontrolled aquacultural development would have serious  detrimental effects on.  Tories absence  is questioned  The refusal of the provincial  government to aid in the financing of this study is completely  contrary to my interpretation of  the results of the Gillespie Inquiry into Aquaculture. Does  your government intend to continue to develop the aquaculture  industry under your past policy  which was basically left to  monitor itself? This may lead to  disastrous environmental damage and or organized confrontation between other foreshore  users and the aquaculture industry.  Does your government not  consider other uses of the  foreshore such as residential  and recreational use, tourism,  sports fishing, wilderness  retreats, commercial fishing,  yachting, logging, and scuba  diving to be of any pleasure,  sport or dollar value?  The foreshore of the Sunshine Coast is a common resource that belongs to all the  people of BC, as does all other  Editor's Note: The following  letter wasr received for publication.  The Prime Minister  Parliament Buildings  Ottawa, Ontario  Dear Mr. Mulroney  Is the Conservative Party  afraid to talk to West Coast  writers about the impact of free  trade on their livelihoods?  That's the message that the  Festival of the Written Arts is  getting from West Coast Conservatives, and we want you to  tell us that this isn't true by  making sure that the Conservative viewpoint is presented to  writers at 'The Saturday  (August 15) Lunch Panel  Discussion and Exchange of  Ideas' at the Fifth Annual  Festival of the Written Arts.  The West Coast's writers will  be represented on the panel by  the controversial novelist and  short story writer Anne  Cameron and by poet/publisher  Howard White of Harbour  Publishing. The NDP will be  represented by Ray Skelly, MP  for Comox-Powell River, and  the Liberal, point of view will be  delivered by Gordon Wilson,  president of the Comox-Powell  River Liberal Association, and  the front-running candidate for  the leadership of the B.C.  Liberals.  But to our surprise and consternation, we have been rebuffed by the office of Mary Collins  and by the office of Pat Carney!  This Festival is unique in  Western Canada because it brings together hundreds of  readers and writers to talk  about the latest books, to  understand how they came to be  made, and to discuss the issues  that affect writers and writing.  And what issue could be more  important in 1987, with a free  trade treaty in the works, than  that treaty's impact on writing  and publishing in this country?  Reassure us that the Conservative Party is not afraid to talk  to writers about this issue. Send  a Conservative representative to  the Festival of the Written Arts.  Betty C.

I therefore respectfully suggest to you, Mr.  Premier, that it is the responsibility of the provincial government to fund the studies that are  necessary to obtain the scientific  data required for orderly development of our public foreshore  for the benefit of all people.  Please use your position as  Premier to intervene in this matter and arrange for at least matching funding to undertake this  important study. Make this  study a precedent setting example of local government and  provincial ministries working  together towards orderly  development of British Columbia's valuable foreshore assets.  The conscientious development of the foreshore is a provincial as well as a local responsibility. The financial burden of  this task should not be borne  solely by local coastal taxpayers.  M.

Coast News, August 10,1987  Aquaculture conference  Agriculture and Fisheries  Minister John Savage will be  eaciing a British Columbia in-  Just ry/government mission to  Aqua Nor '87, a major aqua-  .ulture trade show in Tron-  dheim, Norway, Aug. 13-18.  He said last week the purpose  cf the mission, which is supported by the Ministry of  Economic Development, is to  promote the province as a  stable, primary aquaculture  centre with proven growth  potential.  exhibition will also provide both  government and industry representatives with the opportunity  to learn new methods and  technology which will help advance the growth and development of BC aquaculture.  "It is important to spread the  message abroad that the BC industry, while relatively young, is  growing rapidly and has world-  class operations, suppliers and  services," he said.  "The visit will also help BC  manufacturers   develop   co  operative arrangements with international aquaculture organizations."  Grace McCarthy, Minister of  Economic Development said the  mission to Aqua Nor conforms  closely with her Ministry's  strategy "to encourage the  development of equipment  manufacturing capability in the  aquaculture sector."  Government and private sector representatives will be manning a provincial booth at the  trade show which is expected to  attract 30,000 visitors from 20  countries.  Aqua Nor is the main industry event for the world's  aquaculture sector and Savage  will be speaking to leading industry representatives outlining  the current status of the BC  aquaculture industry and promoting its technology and  equipment.  "Last year, our government  launched an inquiry of the BC  aquaculture industry by David  Gillespie,"   the  minister  said.  "Most of the 52 recommendations from that inquiry have  now been implemented, strengthening the industry and  assisting in its orderly development."  Representatives of the BC  Salmon Farmers' Association  will also be attending Aqua Nor  helping their members acquire  the assistance needed for expansion and marketing efforts.  Canadian banking representatives will meet with their  Norwegian counterparts and  tour industry operations both to  gain a greater awareness of the  industry's potential and explore  ways of expanding their participation, as lenders, in BC  aquaculture. ^  The Vancouver Trade and  Convention Centre will also be  promoting "Aquaculture International, Congress and Exposition," an international world  aquaculture event to take place  in Vancouver, September 6 to 9,  1988.  Volunteers still needed  The Sunshine Coast Home  Support Society is preparing to  launch a new program, called  'Respite Service' and is looking  for 'Respite Workers'.  What is a respite worker? A  respite worker, states administrator Martha Scales, is a  person who may provide relief  to family members from the  constant care of a relative, may  provide temporary relief to  working parents for emergency  child care, or may provide companionship for an isolated or  lonely person.  What qualifications does a  person need in order to be a  respite worker? "I believe,"  says Martha, "that a person's  qualities and life experiences are  more important than qualifications. We are looking for persons who are mature, confident,  good listeners, and know how  to care for themselves as well as  for others. They must be flexible, be able to work with very  minimal supervision, and maintain a high level of confidentiality."  How long might a respite  worker stay in a person's home?  The assignments are usually between two and eight hours in  length. Longer periods are  possible depending upon the  needs of the client and the  availability of the worker.  If people want to apply or  want to know more, what can  they do? Persons wanting to be  respite workers can phone  885-5144 or can come to the office to complete an application.  The office is at 202- - 5710  Teredo Square in Sechelt.  VOLUNTEER DRIVERS  Volunteer Drivers, a service  offered through Community  Services, can make all the dif  ference. Volunteer drivers pick  up clients and take them to their  destinations, whether it be on  the Sunshine Coast or in Vancouver. Mileage and basic expenses are covered.  If you  would like to participate in this  service please call the Volunteer  Action Centre at 885-5881 or  drop into the office, upstairs at  The Dock in Sechelt.
