 Great weather and record crowds made the 41st annual Pender  Harbour May Day one of the best ever, giving a great start to the  reign of 1987 May Queen Erin Duncan and her lovely entourage.  ���Fran Burnside photo  Joan Clarkson and her students  Locals shine in ceramics contest  It was the Vancouver Island  Ceramic Association's annual  competition in Sydney May 8, 9  and 10, but in the words of the  Master of Ceremonies, "I'd like  to thank everyone for coming to  the Joan Clarkson Awards  "Show."  Joan Clarkson of Halfmoon  Ceramics and 49 of her students  took home a total of 142 trophies, awards and ribbons in  competition against ceramists  from Vancouver Island, Washington, Oregon, Idaho and  Alberta.  Joan herself earned, the official title of 'Master of  Ceramics', now ranking as one  of the best in the world, and  won two of the highest awards  in ceramics: the 'Best of Professionals' trophy and the 'Judges'  Award'.  This is the second time that  Joan hair- Won;^- -Judges'  Award, the first being in 1983,  her first year as a ceramist. This  award could only be made because  the  nine  judges  were  unanimous in their estimation  that Joan's original music box  was unique and met all of the  required criteria, inlcuding that  it "be of a calibre that it can ef-  ��������  fectively be called 'One of the  Best in the World". It is  because she has two Top Show  awards that Joan can now be  ranked a Master.  All of Joari*s students did exceptionally well in the competition, including the 16 residents  of Shorncliffe where Joan volunteers time to teach every second week, all of whom won  awards.  Award winners in the competition are listed alphabetically  on page 17.  Coast represented on  Cap College Board  For the first time, the Sunshine Coast has representation on  the Capilano College Board of Trustees.  Minister of Education Tony Brummett has announced the  appointment of Harvey Bist of Sechelt to sit on the board,  which has been expanded from six to nine to include additional representatives from Whistler and North Vancouver as  well as the Sunshine Coast.  Bist, Supervisor at the Ministry of Social Services and  Housing, applied to sit on the board two years ago when it  had a vacancy, and feels that Sunshine Coast representation  is long overdue.  School Board charged  with indoctrination  by Ken Collins  Joan Clarkson of Halfmoon Ceramics proudly holds the Judges'  Award, "The Golden Hand', which she won for her original hand-  made music box, judged ''One of the Best in the World" at the  Vancouver Island Ceramics Association's annual competition.  Joan also won the 'Peggy' Award, left, the highest award for professional creativity. ���Fran Burnside photo  Aquaculturists at  Sechelt Chamber  The next dinner meeting of the Sechelt and District  Chamber of Commerce will be held at Casa Martinez on  Tuesday, May 26.  A panel of Aquaculturists will discuss and answer questions on the local aquaculture industry. Social hour at 6:30,  dinner at 7:30. Cost will be $14.  Everyone is welcome and reservations can be made by calling the chamber office.  Carol L. Oslie has written a  letter to the school board requesting they rescind the motion for one minute of silence in  honour of workers disabled, injured or killed on the job. The  motion had been passed  unanimously.  "I object to board support of  the proposal because this  scheme has no bearing on the  education or welfare of our  children and is simply another  political assault by organized  labour. The potential to subject  children to, in this case subtle,  indoctrination into union mentality in their schools is just too  great," she said in her letter.  On the same subject of indoctrination, Mr. Tony Brummet  has directed school boards to  circulate a letter to all students  which has offended some  trustees locally. The letter  assures all students that examinations and graduation  ceremonies will not be jeopardized this year because of work-  to-rule actions.  "I have been asked by some  school students, deprived of  extra-curricular activities at  school, why they are being  punished in this way," is the  controversial part.  He continues, "This appears  to be the choice of the same  teachers who have voluntarily  provided such services in the  past. They have done so because  of a professional interest in  enriching the learning experiences of their pupils, and I  expect most of them still feel  that way. No one has the right  to tell teachers they can't continue to volunteer their services  to provide extra-curricular activities such as coaching, club  sponsorship, music and drama  events."  Trustee Mewhort commented  that it "could spark lively  debate," and Trustee Edmonds  argued they "should not censor  material."  The board voted to send a  copy of the minister's letter to  each school and the local  papers.  Picture seen negative  Revitalization snags  met in Sechelt  The plans to have downtown  Sechelt classified as a "designated area" for revitalization  has run into some snags. At the  last regular meeting of Sechelt  Council on May 6, Revitalization Committee Chairman Bill  Bailey asked council to draft the  necessary by-law to go to public  hearing. At that time Mayor  Bud Koch expressed some reservations about having the by-law  drafted before all affected property owners had been contacted.  At last week's committee  meeting he took an even firmer  stand. "There is going to be no  by-law until I have proof that  all the property owners have  been contacted," he told Alderman Mike Shanks, who represents council on the revitalization committee.  Koch told the meeting that  the problem lay with the properties on Wharf Street. Because  Highway 101 runs through  there, it is illegal to have cars  backing out of parking spaces  onto the highway itself. If a  sidewalk is installed on Wharf  Street, that would eliminate  angle parking since cars would  then be backing onto the  highway.  Providing alternate parking  further away would kill some of  the small businesses, Koch said,  since people tend to walk as little as possible to get where  they're going.  He told council that he had  done some rough drawings of  an alternate design which would  see the continuation of the  layout which is in front of the  new mini-mall, a property  which Koch owns.  In an interview with the  Coast News, the mayor pointed  out the design would mean all  changes would take place on  private property, costing property owners approximately  $800 to $1000 per lot frontage  and would cost the taxpayers  nothing. It would also mean, he  said, that only four parking  spaces would be lost on Wharf  Street.  In an attempt to clarify the  situation, the Coast News contacted several tenants and property owners. While all the tenant businesses were aware of  the revitalization plans, some  property owners had not been  contacted, and it is the owners  who vote on whether or not  they want the revitalization project to take place. A 50 per cent  vote can kUl the required bylaw.  When asked to comment on  the situation Alderman Mike  Shanks said, "The picture is  pretty negative right now."  One,or possibly two, grey whales have been cruising the waters of  the Sunshine Coast for several days recently. This whale watcher  was one of many who enjoyed seeing the peaceful giants. Grey  whale sightings were not uncommon a few years ago.  ���John Burnside photo  Effective this week  Loss of wharf parking  will hurt community  "We have to go up to Gibsons Building Supplies a dozen  times a day," stated fisherman  Wayne Smith of the Fauna //in  response to the question, "How  will the ban on wharf parking  affect you?"  He and his partner, Ian Cor-  rance, are busy trying to get  their boat ready for the fishing  season. If they cannot do it efficiently here, they will take it  elsewhere, and with it goes their  business.  A commercial boat owner  pointed out that at present there  are approximately 40 commercial boats berthing at the  government dock. Boat repair  and upkeep is measured in the  thousands of dollars. Multiplied  by 40 it starts to add up. Add to  that the money the crews bring  in to town and what is spent on  provisioning and we are looking  at a serious slice of the Gibsons'  economy.  Mr. Smith expressed the  belief that even if fishermen  stayed, Lower Gibsons merchants would still suffer. People  normally going to the wharf  would be plugging the spaces  generally used by customers.  Dick Richardson from the  towboat Stormer stated, "If  they're going to put everybody  out of business, they're going  about it the right way." Coast News, May 18,1987  _<&>*���_��*��� >f* JJ3tr* ' /<*��*/-.  ^iii��iiii��pct��p����aa������n��Ma��ai��M��)��ipMiMMatM^i��>��i������>M����L����  Revitalization  We hope that Sechelt is not about to lose out on its opportunity to participate in the revitalization program  because of a misunderstanding about who should be canvassed about participation.  The Gibsons experience has been that the revitalization  program is a very good program indeed and if the District  Municipality of Sechelt decides not to participate because  of a misunderstanding or because they feel, flush with recent and temporary provincial grants, they do not need  low-cost loans to upgrade their town, it is the perception  here that the loss will be considerable.  Park questions  A plan to increase the recreational use of Cliff Gilker  Park is to be discussed Wednesday night in Roberts Creek  at the Community Association meeting. It calls for  baseball fields and a soccer pitch and undoubtedly has  merit  What is not easy to understand is the neglect of this park  by the regional district. Recently some regional board  employees were in there strengthening a lower bridge,  which seemed like one of the more secure in the park,  whilst a bridge in the top half continues to dangle over the  creek. Whilst they were at it the workmen removed stairs  rather than replacing steps, necessitating in one case a  scramble up a steep bank that will not be comfortable for  senior citizens.  Here are some facts to consider in pondering the neglect  of Cliff Gilker Park: Regional Board Chairman Jim  Gurney, presently trumpeting the joys of Soames Hill as  the Stanley Park of tomorrow - never mind that for older  people the steepness of the park is an effective bar to its enjoyment - has said that he feels there should be a 27-hole  golf course in Roberts Creek; the Works Superintendent is  an avid golfer who thinks the park should be ceded to the  golf club; no other SCRD park has been so consistently  neglected...  Director McGillivray might be asked why he has been so  indifferent about the Creek's main piece of flat parkland  which allows access to all ages.  Need we point out the rate at which trees are disappearing from Roberts Creek at the present time. In a dozen  years will visitors and residents have any forest to visit?  ��^Mfcmm mtoiiMcomr mm  5 YEARS AGO  At Tuesday's school board meeting at Chatelech  Secondary School in Sechelt about 45 parents and  teachers heard from the board how $242,320 was to be  cut from the board's original budget.  RCMP remind residents that any objects found on  local beaches which might be from the naval testing  ground in Georgia Strait should be reported immediately to police.  Meals on Wheels has now completed its first year of  operation in Gibsons and is a real success. The time  has come to explore the possibility of expanding the  operation into Sechelt.  10 YEARS AGO  Gibsons Council learns that the new reservoir will be  completed by the end of June.  Ten year old Ida Henderson of Port Mellon thought it  was her turn to go fishing with her dad. Her brothers had  had lots of turns. Ida went and on the first fishing trip  hooked into a 35 pound salmon which her father landed  for her after it had towed their 14 and a half foot boat  around in circles for more than two hours.  20 YEARS AGO  Work has started beyond Hopkins Landing by Black  Bail Ferries on a new ferry slip to serve the Sunshine  Coast.  YMCA Camp Elphinstone celebrates its 50th anniversary this season.  30 YEARS AGO  Gibsons Landing has acquired a new road. The extension of Fletcher Road now meets the Sechelt highway  immediately below St. Vincent's Church.  Real Estate in Sechelt sees a four room house, fully  furnished, with a view on 14 acres selling for $3000.  40 YEARS AGO  Pre-schoolers in Pender Harbour now have a school  all their own. A nursery school is held in the club house  each week with 16 children in attendence. It is hoped  that more mothers will become interested and send  their youngsters.  Gibsons Village Council went on record as completely approving work of the Kinsmen Club in offering to  provide swings for children in the municipal playground.  Mr. and Mrs. P.W. Case have sold their general store  in Roberts Creek to Mr. and Mrs. J. Blott. The new  owners will take over at once. Roberts Creek will be  sorry to lose Mr. and Mrs. Case and Queenie, and we extend a hearty welcome to the newcomers.  The Sunshine  "\  Publisher & Managing Editor Co-Publisher  John Burnside M.M.

The vessel was built in 1984 at Allied Shipyards in  North Vancouver and is of a welded steel hull with an aluminum  superstructure design. The ship is powered by twin 3408 Caterpillar  engines that develop approximately 365 brake-horsepower each,  giving the vessel a service speed of 10 knots depending on load. The  Tsekoa II is equipped with a Hyab 360 degree crane which is  located on her stern deck and is capable of lifting between two and  five tonnes. The ship has a crew of seven and is responsible for the  maintenance and repair of the numerous wharfs, floats, docks and  facilities on the West Coast that come under the responsibility of  federal agencies such as Transport Canada or Small Crafts and  Harbours. The ship remains at sea on a 21 day basis and can be  found, on assignment, in the Prince Rupert area, the West Coast of  Vancouver Island and throughout the inner passages along the  B.C. Coast.  ���Kent Sheridan photo  Maryanne's Viewpoint  New scenarios need new solutions  by Maryanne West  While it ill becomes any of  us, (most particularly one born  with a silver spoon in his  mouth), to downgrade others  less fortunate than ourselves,  methinks Stephen Rogers' view  that "there is no unemployment  amongst the skilled and  educated people in England"  that it's only "poor white  trash" who can't find work, is  just not true.  To write the unemployed off  as "poor white trash", which  may be the description given to  him by Maggie's officials in  London, doesn't solve anything, as Britain is finding out  the hard way. Are we, too, going to see regular violence if not  full scale riots in our major  cities, as England now- experiences? .   ..,  What bothers me most,* fy  think, is that our politicians  seem to have no understanding  of the obvious, that we are currently caught up in a revolution  which will be as far reaching in  its impact as was the industrial  revolution of the 18th Century.  They show no signs of coping  with the problem of what we are  going to do for the sections of  society for whom there are no  jobs.  What are we going to do for  the young for whom the future  Peace notes  looks bleak and uninviting and  for those in their middle years  with skills and experience no  one needs?  Maggie's bureaucrats undoubtedly have re-informed  Rogers' opinion that something  called privatization is the  panacea for all our ills. If only it  were that simple.  Surely the new scenarios  which our technology is  creating, need new and creative  solutions as well as leaders with  open minds and an understanding of those with backgrounds  different from their own?  What we patently do not  need at this time are ideologues  of either the political right or  left, whose narrow vision is  blinkered by the prejudices of  another age.  The attitude of Rogers and  Forestry Minister Parker j who  "wants nothing to do with...  socialists or communists", are  those which create the circumstances in which ideological  fanatics are born and thrive.  Men and women of good  will, who refuse to label people,  who understand that if humanity and this planet are to survive,  we must quickly learn tolerance  and find ways to live together  within nature's system for self-  renewal, must work harder to  increase their influence.  It becomes more and more  obvious that our politicians are  unable, because of their built-in  prejudices or an unwillingness  to rock the political boat, to do  anything really constructive.  It may be impossible, given  the political climate to institute  the sort of far reaching changes  we need at the national or pro-:.  vincial level. It is certainly easier;  and most probably essential for;  each of us to begin where we are  in our own communities.  The Gipsy Girl  "Come, try your skill, kind gentlemen,  A penny for three tries!''  Some threw and lost, some threw and won  A ten-a-penny prize.  She was a tawny gipsy girl,  A girl of twenty years,  I liked her for the lumps of gold  That jingled from her ears;  I liked the flaring yellow scarf  Bound loose about her throat,  I liked her showy purple gown  And flashy velvet coat.  A man came up, too loose of tongue,  And said no good to her;  She did not blush as Saxons do,  Or turn upon the cur;  She fawned and whined, "Sweet gentleman  A penny for three tries!''  ���But, oh, the den of wild things in  The darkness of her eyes!  Ralph Hodgson  Canadian purchase of nuclear submarines  by Alan Wilson  The recent announcement  that the government will consider purchasing a fleet of 10  nuclear submarines to patrol the  arctic is an interesting commentary on the effect of the Peace  Movement. On the one hand  Joe Clark has at last begun to  talk of the 'threat' to Canada  posed by American incursions  in our arctic, not just by the  Soviets. This reflects a growing  public acceptance of the need to  maintain vigilance with regard  to both superpower neighbours.  On the other hand, it is  nothing short of lunacy to think  that Canada will be any better  off by an expenditure of (at the  very least) $5 billion dollars for  vessels to monitor traffic in the  arctic. And obviously the government has totally discounted  warnings about the hazards of  nuclear submarines, despite our  best efforts.  The government has rather  cleverly manipulated what we  have been saying so as to justify  exactly what we have been warning against. Our concerns  about foreign vessels in our  waters have been warped into  an issue of nationalism. What  the government fails to acknowledge is that the Peace Movement has been criticising  militarism, period. Militarism  by Canada is no solution.  There also remain unanswered questions such as what  will these subs be used for?  What can possibly justify $5  billion?  The other night on the Journal a spokesperson for the Centre for Arms Control and Disarmament asked: "What are we  going to do if we find a foreign  submarine up there?''  The reply from the military  was basically that if those  foreigners know that WE know  that they're there, they'll think  twice about entering our waters.  Oh great. $5 billion just to  say: "Hey you, we know you're  there."  Surely that's not worth the  money. No. When faced with a  foreign vessel the real issue will  be whether we should do  anything about it. Should we  tell it to go away? Should we  threaten it? And with what?  Will we arm our subs with  torpedoes, rockets, missiles,  depth bombs? And will any of  these be nuclear? In short, is  Canada going to become a  'naval power', even perhaps a  nuclear power?  I hardly need to remark that  this is precisely the sort of thinking (or lack of it) that led the  dinosaurs into extinction - more  armour, less brains.  It has been said that our subs  would not carry nuclear  weapons, but even conventional  weapons used against a nuclear  powered, nuclear equipped  vessel will have nuclear consequences, strewing radioactive  material through our waters.  Remember, we would have to  be prepared to use our weapons  and would have to convince our  adversaries of this. In short, we  would have to be willing to fire  on a foreign vessel and perhaps  initiate a nuclear war. And for  what? For some abstraction  called 'sovereignty'? For  'security'?  But again, the government  has been clever. It would seem  that Defence Minister Beatty  has been listening to our concerns. So that when US officials  recently raised concerns about  the idea of Canadian subs, he  replied (in the guise of a good  nationalist): "...our defence  policy will be written in Canada  to serve Candian needs, and it  won't be written in  Washington."  Beatty apparently told the  NY Times in an interview that  nuclear subs may be the only  way Canada can defend our  surrounding oceans. But just  how do you defend an ocean?  How can we defend anything  in the nuclear age? And against  whom? When are we going to  come to grips with the fact that  the evil enemy has been trying  vigourously now for a couple of  years to strike arms deals, to  limit weapons, to stop nuclear  testing, to reverse the anus race,  ultimately to eliminate nuclear  weapons. And we in the West  have done precious little to  match these initiaties. You  don't have to be pro-Soviet to  recognize the unprecedented opportunity which has been  presented over and over by Gorbachev.  Our government does not  seem terribly interested in  reducing tensions. Rather it  seems to want to get into the big  league and into the deep seas,  just as England seems bound  vainly to try to regain some of  its former naval stature, bankrupting the nation to buy a fleet  of new Trident submarines,  with France too talking of a  submarine fleet. And thus the  world bristles with ever more  weapons. What an irony when  our 'enemy' is apparently making efforts to de-escalate.  When are we going to  recognize the hard cold facts,  that the increase of weaponry  does not bring security, or  sovereignty, or strength, but  merely fans the flames of envy,  distrust, and potential destruction, while weakening our social  structures through increasing  unemployment, false illusions^  and decreased spending to meet  the needs of an increasingly  desperate humanity?  If the 'enemy' wants to  bargain, shouldn't we try to  bargain? But no, that's too simple. That's no way to build up  national strength!  As for sovereignty, I have to  ask, when did this government  suddenly start worrying about  sovereignty!? This particular  government has been overseeing  a massive sell-off of Canadian  companies and resources to  foreign owners. At least in this  Canada is First in the  World...we have the highest  level of foreign ownership of  any country. Doesn't it make  you proud?!  And now we will spend  massively (no doubt to buy  these subs from a foreign country) to guard that empty  sovereign shell of a country.  Not only are these sub7  marines NOT needed, but in  fact we could accomplish the  same thing in other ways, with  listening devices, for example,  with ice-breakers (as arctic explorer, surveyor, and former  Canadian navy captain Tom  Pullen has suggested). Robert  Aldridge, when he spoke at the  People's Enquiry, similarly suggested much cheaper alternative  detection methods. But then,  big budgets and big war toys  make for big men. After all, we  want the Canadian navy to be  able to swagger with the best of  them, don't we. Coast News, May 18,1987  Trent's vi��w����iiii  Editor:  Re: your article on complaints to Town Council by Mr.  Dickson and Jean Crego.  I resent that my daughter is  put in the category of being a  thug or hooligan because she attends beach parties. I don't  totally approve of the beach  parties myself, but when asked  why do most of the young people hang out on the beach I get  the reply that there is nothing  else to do.  Checking, I find out that this  i�� very true, the theatre plays the  sjame movie both Friday and  Saturday nights and if it is  restricted (19 and over) they  can't get in. The swimming pool  closes at 9 pm, so after that  what is there?  Too bad that some of these  concerned citizens didn't get  together to see if a hall could be  used for teen dances or other activities on the week-ends to get  the kids off the beaches.  Most of the young people I  know hold down part time jobs,  do okay in school and are on  the most part quite responsible.  If these concerned citizens see  defecation, urination and fornication happening, I wonder  how close they are to be able to  see all this in the dark?  I know that the drinking,  especially when vehicles are involved and the vandalism are of  major concern. It concerns me  too, but why judge and punish  all the young people by a few  that abuse alcohol and do the  vandalism. As for the statement  that they fear that their houses  will be torched, I find it quite  ridiculous.  If this is a democratic society  as Mr. Dickson states, then  didn't he fight for the right of  all people young and old (within  the law) to go where they  please?  As I stated before until there  is an alternative place for the  young people of the community, there will probably be partying on the beaches.  Pam Lumsden  Appreciation  Editor:  In reference to the Nature  Walk advertisement in the May  4 edition of your paper, I would  like to thank John Hind-Smith  for giving people the opportunity to enjoy the beautiful scenery of the Sunshine Coast.  I'm sure a lot of people  would love to see the Spring  wildflowers, and experience  nature at its finest, but they  don't know where to look. It's  great that John is willing to take  the time to show them. Even a  fee of $2.50 isn't bad considering that the participants can go  back any time without charge,  once they know where to look.  T. Caldwell  Staff appointment  Editor's Note: A copy of the  following letter was received for  publication.  The Mayor  District of Sechelt  "Project Manager Hired"  -Overstaffing - Empire Building  I refer to the article in the  Press of Tuesday, May 12, page  27 under the heading "Project  Manager hired".  f also refer to your letter of  September 19, 1986, in which  you replied to me that the  following restructuring, one office person and maximum three  outside public works employees, will be hired and that these  staff have now been hired and  their cost is covered by  "budget".  It is with dismay that I now  find that additional positions  have been created without  budget covering and in contradiction  of your  assurance  that no further staff will be  hired.  If you, as mayor, are incapable to cope with the tasks  entrusted to you then the obvious step to be taken is to  resign and let someone else  become the leader of our community, who is not burdened  down with too many lucrative  private projects.  Obviously you cannot have  your cake and eat it, for .exam-.:  pie, you cannot indulge in well  paying private enterprise and  bask in the glory of being mayor  of our District of Sechelt, if you  must choose where to set yc~~  priorities re time and effort.  Please let me know whether  the cost of this new appointment will be met out of your  remuneration as mayor. Thanking you in advance for your  prompt reply.

Apologies are in order to the  Halfmoon Bay Fire Department  for failing to mention then-  Mother's Day Breakfast, to the  Welcome Beach Community  Association for the fact that the  plant sale did not get promoted  as planned and to others who  were missed out.  These events are now passed  but I can still mention that  goods are needed for the annual  giant garage sale at the fire hall  in early July. Time to start saving goods for that one and to let  you know that the fire fellows  will be pleased to pick up items  if you give Bill Ewan a call at  885-5676.

Dolly  and Vi spotted one heading into  my area at Waugh Lake, pro-  bablv iust to scrub around and  check for garbage. I don't trust  bears any more than cougars.  We, my son Brian and two  grandchildren and I, were  travelling home past Bryants  Hill at Ruby Lake and there  were three cougars hanging  around at Footloose Trails entrance. They were in no hurry to  move on. They look like big cats  prowling. It gave me an uneasy  feeling.  Now the Lions are next. Who  are the Egmont Lions you ask?  Here they are: President, Jack  Williams; Secretary, Ken  Jackson; Treasurer, Gordon  Sheppard; Vice Presidents,  Doug Silvey, Don Marshall and  Dick Birch; Directors, two  years, Gib Baal and Joe Muller;  Directors, one year, Bill Griffith  and Maynard Kaasa; Tail  Twister, Ron Kushner; and  Lion Tamer, Brent Sheppard.

The benefits are already  I !j being realized, one example be-  \ i! ing the playing fields proposed  II! for Cliff Gilker Park.  '<���:.     With all the kids'and adults'  :��� leagues, the Coast is woefully  i j! short of ball fields and Roberts  ;l Creek has only the one at the  ;j; elementary   school.   An   area  i; previously cleared for such a  |: purpose at Cliff Gilker Park is  '; really the only suitable land  available and moneys are available from Lottery funds as well  as the Recreation Commission.  There's room for two ball-  fields with a soccer pitch in the  outfields.   Surveys   are   being  made and plans are going ahead  so now is the time for public input. Come to the Community  Association   meeting   on  Wednesday if you are interested  in what's happening or have  questions.  Also to be discussed are the  recent acquisition of the land at  the mouth of the Creek by the  Regional District, the new left  turn lane at the corner of Hall  Road and the Highway, the new  water main, the addition to the  library and Roberts Creek  Daze.  There's lots happening in the  Creek and this is the last  Association meeting until  September so come out and  show you care about what's going on. Meeting starts at 8 pm in  the Community Hall.  FAIRE FRIDAY  Roberts Creek Elementary's  annual Fun Faire is this Friday,  May 22, from 6 to 8 pm at the  school. There'll be all sorts of  things happening, including  kids' games, a white elephant  sale, plant table, baking, cake  decorating, and a service raffle.  You can sign up to donate  your services for the raffle at  Seaview Market and don't  forget to buy a ticket or five.  The Parents' Auxiliary needs  lots of help so if you can  volunteer some time please  phone Louise Storey at  885-1952. And be sure to come  out on Friday night. Everybody  is welcome.  SALE SUNDAY  The Legion Auxiliary's giant  garage sale is this Sunday, May  24, starting at 11 am at the  branch. There'll be coffee and  doughnuts and a door prize.  Come out and support these  hard-working ladies while you  shop for bargains.  If you still have items to  donate you can drop them off  at the Legion before Sunday or  phone 886-3084, 885-9258,  885-3522 or 885-3326 for  pickup.  VOLUNTEER THANKS  Volunteers play a very large  role on the Coast, providing  many services that would not be  provided by government funding. There were 34 nominees  for Volunteer of the Year this  year and Diana Zornes says she  felt very honoured to be among  so many worthy people.  She'd like to thank all the  people who wrote letters nominating her, especially Dianne  Evans who spear-headed the  campaign. Diana was really  touched by the support she  received and she was tickled to  be named first runner-up.  Speaking of volunteers, a  million thanks from Diana and  the rest of the community to  John Williams for the work he  does on the lawn behind the  Post Office. It looks terrific!  SPRING DANCE  Coming up on May 30 is the  Parents' Auxiliary's Spring  Fling Dance with music by The  Emeralds and a skit by Gordon  Wilson. Tickets are a nominal  $2.50 at Seaview Market so lots  of people should be able to  come out and i support the  parents.  Emergency  plan seminar  by Peggy Connor  The Emergency Response  Plan seminar held on Thursday,  May 14 was as much information on what the plan consists  of, as it was what more needs to  be put into it to make it more  effective.  The theme for this day was  "Starting What We Must  Finish". A good plan must take  all things into consideration  from the first responder, to a  disaster, to who pays for what  and all the loose ends.  It is important to know who  the'players are and that each  knows what the others' positions are. Therefore, it was particularly gratifying that nearly  all agencies were represented.  The seminar was introduced  with the video "Will You Be  Ready?". Art McPhee went  over   the   Sunshine   Coast  FREE USE PERMITS  FOR FIREWOOD  There are  numerous areas open on the Sunshine Coast  for personal use firewood cutting. Permits and maps are  now available at the Sechelt Forest District Office, 1975  Field Road.  Most areas will be broadcast burned during the Spring or  Fall of 1987. Firewood should be removed at your earliest  opportunity.

The threat that emergencies  may arise affecting both of the  municipalities and all the rest of  the regional district, means that  we should be involved in an  overall plan, using all of our  resources and expertise, and in  terms that are mutually understood.  Geoff Power, fresh from an  orientation of PEP in Victoria,  explained the different types of  exercise. Each one will lead to a  more complex one, a run  through of the plan, then a table  top excercise ending with an  assimilation of disaster involving the communities.  Two scenarios were gone  through, each followed by a  debriefing with questions.  A sum up of the seminar and  the program ended with a video  of major exercise in Richmond.  Several important items that  came out of this seminar will be  dealt with at the next meeting of  the PEP executive on Thursday,  May 28 at the Emergency  Operations Centre at the Sunshine Coast Regional District  Board Room in Sechelt at 2 pm.  Sechelt will  celebrate  In spite of some minor setbacks in planning, Sechelt  Celebration Days organizers say  that this year's festival will be  bigger and better than ever.  Don Siemens, who is organizing  the parade, told the Coast News  last week that various events  and everything is starting to fall  into place.  The Sunshine Coast Maritime  History Society has received the  approval of Sechelt Council to  hold a tag day in order to defray  the costs of bringing five small  replicas of 1780's square riggers  in to perform a mock battle  during Celebration Days.  An arts and crafts fair is being organized by the Sunshine  Coast Arts Council to take  place in the empty lot beside the  Raven Cafe on June 27.  Already, several potters,  jewelry makers and people who  work in fabric arts have reserved booth space, and organizers  hope that a lot more local craftspeople will participate.  Anyone wishing more information about participation in  the June 27 parade should contact Don Siemens at 885-2235  and booth space can be reserved  for the crafts fair by calling  Elaine Futterman at 885-2395.  i.vl  Ib.

Chili, cold plate, salads,  sandwiches and homemade  pies. All proceeds go to St.  Mary's Hospital to provide the  extras for the patients and buy  some equipment not on the  general list.  Last, year the six branches  that make up the auxiliary  presented a cheque for $75,000  to St. Mary's Hospital. This  money was raised by events put  on by the six branches and the  participation of the general  public as they supported these  events.

SECHELT LEGION BINGO  A fine way to support the  Sechelt  Legion that provides  funds for so many groups, such  as little league and other sports,  Guides, Brownies, Scouts, etc.,  is to attend their Wednesday  night bingo that starts at 7:30  pm in the Sechelt Legion Hall,  Branch 140.  Parents and children all are  welcome. Surplus games, winner take all is one of the extra  games they play. While supporting organizations you also have  the opportunity to win.  by Larry Grafton  With membership approaching the 600 mark we're  not doing too badly, but we  need those delinquent memberships in order to maintain that  level attained in 1986.  Membership is due and  payable on January 1 each year  and a phone call to Kay McKen-  zie at 885-3184 or Gerry  Chailler at 886-3728 will  simplify payment procedure.  PLANT SALE  The annual spring plant sale  of the branch held on May 2  was a complete success. A great  variety of house plants, ground  cover, shrubs, vegetables, etc.,  etc. were brought in on the Friday night and Saturday morning which enabled those attending to have a fair selection to  choose from.  For those of you who missed  this one, the fall plant sale will  take place in our hall. You  should mark your calendar for  October 3 now so that you will  not miss it. The tables were  cleared by 1:30 pm and the few  plants left were taken to the  Thrift Shop.  CARDS  A potluck lunch at noon was  a little different feature of the  wind-up of cribbage and whist  for the year. When the  wreckage of lunch was cleared  away the card games proceeded  with Bert Sherlock coming out  with high score in cribbage and  Dorothy Husby and Madge Bell  sharing   honours   at   whist.  Bert, of course, got the high  and guess who got the booby  prize? Just my luck.  GENERAL MEETING  On Thursday, May 21, our  Tender awarded  The contract for the construction of the Sechelt campus  of Capilano College was awarded May 11.  The successful bidder was  Ole's Construction Inc., of  North Vancouver. There were  two other bids, one from the  Lower Mainland and one from  the Sunshine Coast, and it was a  close competition.  The contract for construction  of the single storey building was  worth $320,000. Approximately  45 per cent of the value of the  contract will be open to local  tradespeople.  The college looks forward to  moving into the facility in early  September, with substantial  completion on or before August  31.  general meeting will be called to  order at 1:30 pm. The delegates  to the Provincial Convention  will have returned and a report  will be forthcoming. Plan on  leaving the weeds to grow in the  garden that afternoon, and attend the meeting.  Quite probably there will only  be one more general meeting  prior to summer break although  it has been intimated that the  "first Tuesday of the month"  executive meeting will'continue  through the summer to look  after eventualities that may crop  up.

You can call Elva Dinn at  (85-2361 for detailed informa-  ion of the disease and of the  ;upport the foundation pro-  ides.  "We are all volunteer  nembers," says Elva, "and our  >nly office is in Toronto. At  present we do not canvass the  immunity for donations, but  ve do have collection boxes in  :ome of our stores."  There will be a Teen '87  Variety Show on May 22 in  jreenecourt Hall under the  iirection of Nikki Weber, the  xoceeds of which will be given  :o the Cystic Fibrosis Founda-  ion.  Nikki and the teen performers have been working  lard to prepare a sparkling  show. Dancing, skits, songs,  $ome lip sync numbers will  nake this a "sizzling" variety  >how.  Jennifer Copping will be a  guest performer in the show.  Jennifer, you will remember,  performed in last year's honour  light of the Sunshine Coast  Dance Festival. Jennifer now  Ives in New Westminster.  Another honours night performer last year, Bonnie  Stewart, will present a tap  lumber. Karen Boothroyd will  have two groups of her students  in this show. Accompanist is  Ken Dalgieish, a well-known  musician of the Sunshine Coast.  This production is only one  of Nikki Weber's many musical  enterprises; among the groups  she directs and trains are the  Mini-Mob, ages 7 to 12, the  69ers, ages SO to 86, the Rolling  Tones, The GG's (generation  gap), the Semi-Tones, up to 16  years, and Strings and Things.  Nikki didn't say what she did  with any spare time she might  have.  "Our Master of Ceremonies  for the evening, Chris Upsdell,  has been researching cystic  fibrosis articles and pamphlets  so that he'll know what it is the  variety show is supporting and  be able to tell the audience."  A show for any age. Try for  tickets at Marlee's in Gibsons.  PROMOTION  Sergeant Bessant of the Gibsons detachment RCMP will  transfer with a promotion to  Staff-Sergeant to the Prince  George detachment some time  in mid-summer.  Sandy Michayluk, clerk-  typist in the Gibsons RCMP is  leaving the Sunshine Coast to  reside in the Fraser Valley. Her  replacement will be Jan Hill of  Sidney.  THERE IS SUCH A PLACE  The Suspect, the novel by  Ms. LR Wright of Vancouver is  her first suspense one of the  several she has written. This one  is set "in a sleepy town on the  Sunshine Coast" and features a  "warm-hearted town librarian"  (surely just as far as books are  concerned) and a "zealous  staff-sergeant".  There is such a place, the  back cover blurb states, as the  Sunshine Coast .and towns and  villages are called by the names  used in the book. All the rest is  fiction.  Copies should be available  again this week in the Book  Store. "The book has become  very popular again," the  manager of the Book Store  says, "and it is very hard to pry  any number of copies out of the  Vancouver wholesalers."  And will someone unearth  the reasons for a movie company to go elsewhere to shoot  the story this summer?

ELPHIE GRADS  Elphinstone grad of '86,  Leanne Middleton has just  finished her first year of B. Ed  (Elementary) program at the  University of Victoria. Leanne*  was awarded the Roberts Creek  New Horizons bursary last year.  She has just finished her prac-  ticum in a grade 3-4 class at  Kidston Elementary, Vernon,  and is now in Sidney for the  summer to work for Jim' and :  Gwenda (Havies) Waterhouse  in their recreational vehicle, rental business.  Karl Messner chose to return  to Elphinstone to take more  classes in the Communications  program; for example, directing  and producing television shows.  He also had work experience  with Coast Cable during the  school year.  Nurses  in sex ed  Public health nurses on the  Sunshine Coast want^an active  role in the development and implementation of sex education  programs within the school  system.  At the annual meeting of the  Registered Nurses Association  of B.C., the Sunshine Coast  delegation, consisting of Sherry  Kelly, Heather Myhill-Jones  and Bev Miller, put forth a  resolution that the board of  directors "lobby Preventive Services of the B.C. Ministry of  Health to ensure nursing time is  available as needed to help  develop and teach age appropriate health education programs."  The motion was passed with  a large majority in favour.  The background information  presented with the resolution  stated that public health nurses  are well suited to the role of  teaching sex education. They  already have access to the  schools, are familiar with  parents, faculty and students,  and have had a teaching component in their educational  background.

A new unbrella society incorporating Gibsons Food Bank  and Nifty Thrifty's now celebrates its registration under the  name of Gibsons Community  Self-Help Association.  The new society also celebrates the receipt of a federal  government grant of $52,000,  enabling the hiring of three  Unemployment Insurance recipients, one manager and covering some operating costs.  Nifty Thrifty's provides a  location and manpower for the  operation of Gibsons Food  Bank. The income from sales of  the abundant donations of  clothing and other goods goes  toward providing the $600  worth of groceries required  monthly, plus rent and equipment.  Donations of money and  food are most appreciated by  the hardworking volunteers.  They are encouraged by the  heartwanning response of the  community and hope that support will continue to grow.  The volunteers and employees keep busy sorting for clean,  absorbent rags to sell; cutting  strips of material, for making  braided and other rugs; picking  apart woolen sweaters for re-  knitting; cutting out zippers and  buttons for sale and are now  branching out into the remaking of outmoded garments  into high fashion designs.  In short, they are living up  the title Gibsons Community  Self-Help Association.  To assist with this worthwhile  project, you may send your cheque or money order in care of  Gibsons Food Bank, Box 598,  Gibsons, or drop it in to Nifty  Thrifty's and you will receive a  tax-deductible receipt with  sincere thanks.  Watch for their give-away  box in Sunnycrest Mall where  you may also make your donation.

Everyone's life follows a certain predictable pattern. No one  needs an astrologer or a psychologist to tell them that  somewhere around 12 years of  age, some pretty obvious personality changes will take place.  Many of the commonly accepted transition periods of life  are reflected physically. Your  muscles sag a certain amount,  so many grey hairs or so many  inches of receding hairline and  your friends attribute any emotional changes you're going  through to 'mid-life crisis'.  Astrologers can tell you when  they're coming up, not because  it's caused by planetary positions, any more than it rains  because the weatherman said it  would, but because they are  able to interpret cycles. For that  reason they can also see when  you are most likely to go  through changes of a highly personal nature, that may not be  apparent to others!  The angles that Neptune  makes as it circles the sun to its  position when you were born,  indicate major changes in your  life of a spiritual nature.  Because it takes 163.74 years to  complete an orbit, none of us  are likely to /ee a 'Neptune  return'. Most of us, however,  will go through some major  kind of spiritual turmoil around  the age of 41 when it forms a 90  degree angle to its position in  our natal charts.  Those of you who were born  between August 1944 and  January 1948 are into a time of  confusion and self-examination.  You may be questioning your  'God' and wanting some kind  of tangible 'proof in your life  that your faith has been well-  founded.  Look around you. Chances  are that your life reflects exactly  what you've worshipped. What  you have to decide now is if the  results were what you wanted.  Do they make you happy? Content?  Some people, at this stage,  take a look at their lives and  don't like what they see. Probably most people react that  way. Your handling of those  feelings may determine whether  you end this life feeling at peace  with yourself or bitter and unfulfilled.  If you meet this challenge  with a compassion for yourself  and a faith in something, be it  God or your own innate goodness, you can allow yourself to  doubt, re-evaluate arid  reconstruct. This is a slow transit. It will be several years  before the process is completed.  During that time it's important  to connect with some source of  peace. If you don't pray or  meditate, spend time walking in  the woods or listening to  classical music, anything that  takes you away from your own  ego.  The other alternative reaction  is.to haphazardly reject parts of  the life you have and pursue  anything .that keeps you distracted. It can, at its worst,  become like a self-destructive  frenzy that will leave you even  more unhappy at the end of this  transition.  Neptune can also indicate a  lot of self-deception and  escapism. Unfortunately, you.  can never really escape yourself  and in the end, you're still stuck  with the problem.  So give yourself a break,  literally. Take some time, and  don't think. Feel. At this time,  your conscious mind is not your  best resource. You need to  follow your emotions back to  their source, that's where your  strength lies at this time.

I  only hope I have gained enough  insight over the years to tell it  fairly.  On a cold December day in  1957, I disembark from a  crowded plane at the Vancouver  airport after a bumpy flight,  pick up my gear and trudge  towards Christmas. Carols  tinkle from speakers. The grimy  caverns of the aluminum  smelter are 500 miles behind  me. After a year and a half of  northern exile, I am finally  coming home. I have a pocketful of Kitimat money. I have a  suitcase full of presents. I am  well prepared. It is a good feeling.  The sense of naive euphoria  buoys   me   until   I   reach  Horseshoe Bay and board the  ferry for Gibsons. On the boat,  I run into an old girlfriend called Olga. We exchange happy  gossip for a few minutes. Suddenly, Olga turn serious.  "I  don't like to tell you this," she  says, "but you really should do/  something   about   tb.at   Mik/  Marino.  Your mother's b��A  walking around town with h^k  eyes." A 7.  The bottom drops oi#*f my  foolish joy. J  I walk off the fe/y�� M of  growing anger anr a burning  sense  of betray*-  Mike has-  broken his wor^  I first nwr Mike-when we  were both/orking for a shifty  cedar-sha*  contractor  called  Jake   fcoratski,   in  the  Port  Mello/iarea- Shakecutters are  the/scavengers   of  the  BiC.  W/oas. They work abandoned  gging   claims,   bucking   up  snags and windfalls the loggers  have left behind; hand-splitting  them  into  taper  shakes and  bundling them up for sale to the  roofing market.  This market  fluctuates wildly according to  demand but a good shakecutter  can usually scratch out some  sort of marginal living.  Mike was a wiry, balding  man of about 50, with faintly simian features. We worked well  together and struck up a casual  friendship. This bond was  strengthened when we discovered that Horatski was  cheating us oh. our wages. Mike  and I confronted him and, after  mucif arguing, he gave us our  money. Soon after this, we  decided to quit Horatski and go  into business for ourselves.  At this time, my widowed  mother owned 60 acres of scrub  timber, just west of the Port  Mellon pulp mill. She, my  younger   brother   Marty  and  myself, were living in a couple  of old shacks and a stump  house at the bottom of the property.

Both Mike and I  had a fondness for the sauce but  its effect on us was quite different. Booze, to me, was a  recreational vice, something you  indulged in after a hard day's  work, a sort of pleasant  anaesthetic against the trials and  travails of life. I had always  been a happy drunk.  Mike was another matter.  When we first drank together,  he used to tell me about his  background.

Roy Lewis and Jim Kreiger are among the talented sculptors with  work on display at the Arts Centre. ���John Bumside photo  Sculpture show  still at Arts Centre  The latest exhibition, Contemporary Sculpture at the Arts  Centre in Sechelt is proving to  be a show of great interest with  a wide variety of approaches to  the medium. Styles vary from  the more traditional approach  of The Hand by Roy Lewis and  The Sounding by Robert Lan-  nan to a simplification of the  human form in the wood  sculptures of Linda Fox.  In the humourous Dance of  the Canned Keys and Exposed  by A. Petterson, neither the  technique nor the message are  too heavy handed.  This show has a wide range  of mediums and all the pieces  are on the small side. Most of  the work has been done by Vancouver artists with four local  sculptors included: Jim Drieger,  Linda Fox, Roy Lewis and  Christal Fuoss-Moore. The  show runs until June 7.

We were there  for the opening.  Shorelines  The Hunter Gallery is featuring a new exhibition by well-  known local artist, Marilyn  Rutledge. "New work in a new  style" is how the artist describes  her show entitled 'Shorelines'.  Thirty oil paintings plus six  oil sketches represent the local  area in misty and. grey tones,  and reflect the special atmosphere of the Sunshine  Coast.  by Montague Royal  World class humourists are  few and far between, particularly in Canada where too many  writers take themselves far more  seriously than their work warrants. Thus it is more than  refreshing to run across a total  iconoclast like William P.  Kinsella, one of the funniest  and most-original authors, this  country has ever produced.  Kinsella, who drove cab in  Victoria   for   several   years,  names   Ray   Bradbury   and,  Richard Brautigan as literary influences   and   credits   Bill t7  Valgurdson,   the   well-known! ���-,  writer and teacher, with show-  ,  ing him the ropes: "He taught  me how to edit my stories."  Kinsella's first book of short  fiction Dance Me Outside, was  published in the mid '70's and  found an instant audience (it  has since gone into 28 editions).  Dance Me Outside introduced a cast of characters who must  be ranked among the great  literary creations. They are the  raffish and irrespressible Indians of the Hobbema Reserve  with names like Silas Er-  mineskin, Frank Fencepost and  Mad Etta. Their wild, hilarious,  very human exploits, have ib be  read to be believed.  As a white man writing from  the Native point of view, "'  Kinsella was taking a considerable risk. In the wrong  hands, such material could slip  easily into tasteless,- racist  caricature. But Kinsella is too  skillful a writer to commit this  sort of error. He sides totally  with his fictional creations and  the stories (narrated by Silas Er-  mineskin) are told completely  from their point of view. They  study the curious ways of the  white man with good-humoured  tolerance and he generally  winds up on the sticky end of  their various scams and  schemes.  Kinsella continued to record  the picaresque adventures of the  Hobbema Indians in three subsequent books: Scars (1978);  Born Indian (1981), and The  Moccasin Telegraph (1983), all  published by Oberon. Occasionally, he would slip in a  serious story among the comic  pieces but he kept them  predominantly funny and consistently good.  In recent years, Kinsella turned his attention to the novel and  his baseball fantasies: Shoeless  Joe and The Great Iowa  Baseball Conspirary have  garnered rave reviews in the  United States. It looked for  awhile as though he had abon-  doned the unruly inhabitants of  the Hobbema reserve. Thankfully, this was not the case.  Frank Fencepost and Company  are back (and funnier than ever)  in a fifth collection: The  Fencepost Chronicles (Collins).  Kinsella (who admits he gets .  most of his story ideas from offbeat news items) has outdone  himself here. In one yarn, Silas  Ennineskin, Frank Fencepost  and Mad Etta make their way to  England and end up having an  outrageous chat with the Queen  in her bedroom. In another, the  Hobbema Indians organize the  most inept hockey team on  record and win an unlikely  game against the ferocious St.  Edouard Bashers by putting 400  pound Mad Etta in goal. In a  third, the whole made crew  journeys to Vancouver and  winds up in a bizarre .situation  involving nude bathers and  Greenpeacers on Wreck Beach.  The Fencepost Chronicles is  vintage Kinsella, full of wild  comedy and wise* insights. The  book recently won the Stephen  Leacock Award for. Humour,  an honour ^ that, for Bill  Kinsella, is long overdue. He is  a totally unique talent.

Under happier circumstances,  he might have tended the family  vineyards, inherited the business  eventually and lived a reasonably tranquil life. But World  War One intervened.  Mike lied about his age, joined up at 15 and killed his first  man a year later. He barracked  for a time with a loquacious little ego-maniac called Benito  Mussolini and had long talks  with him. Oddly enough, this  relationship did not benefit him  when Mussolini and his bully  boys seized power and turned  Italy into a dictatorship. Mike,  by this time, had embraced  socialism.  He ran afoul of the Fascists  and was forced to flee Italy  under threat of imprisonment  or death. Mike came to Canada  without English or friends,  worked at various manual jobs  and eked out a frugal existence.  He still fumed with anger over  his exile. "Those bastards, they  steal my birthright!" Mike  would curse bitterly.  Drink sometimes had a  strange and distressing effect on  Mike. As long as he kept his  anger in check or directed on  the past, things went easily  enough. But there were times  when Mike would metamorphose into a belligerent adversary and his rage would focus  on me. The attacks were quite  irrational, based on imagined  insults or untrue allegations that  I wasn't holding up my end of  the job.

It has long been the source of much merriment for my friends  and with that in mind I accepted an invitation to have lunch  there, even though I hadn't seen its interior for at least four  years.  I didn't know what to expect as far as the lunch menu was  concerned but after settling into the cosy sun room at the far  end of the pub, surrounded by plants and situating myself in  the warm sunshine which was streaming in the windows, I was  really amazed at the variety and tempting choices that were of-  fered.The Cedars also has a special drink and a special price  on beer which varies from day to day, but we passed on this  occasion.  At long last we came to some conclusion. We would share a  side order of breaded mushrooms for an appetizer, my friend  ordered the smoked salmon & cream cheese croissant, and I  settled on the breaded chicken strips and fries.   1  We were both amazed at the presentation of the appetizer.  It was much more than we had expected, since the description  on the menu did indicate that this was a side order. What we  were faced with was a fairly large basket of deep fried  mushrooms, steaming hot, served with sour cream garnished  with jslices of green onion. When they finally cooled enough to  try some we were delighted with the delicate spicing and light  flavour we experienced. Between the two of us it was almost a  meal in itself (for two people with small appetites, that is).  The main course was not rushed upon us which I was  grateful for. The croissant was served along with a choice of  soup or salad, my friend chose the salad, and a generous serving of pale golden, crispy French fries, and sprouts. My  chicken was served deep fried with a light and crispy coating,  also with lots of fries and a honey-mustard sauce to dip your  chicken in if you so desired. Trying to finish it all was an impossibility.  I don't think I will wait another four years to have lunch at  the Cedars since the atmosphere is cheery, and the prices are  very reasonable. They serve their brunch menu daily, on  weekends and holidays from 11 to 2 pm. Do stop in. If you are  in a hurry, let the waitress know as the service is very casual  and relaxed.

Olfert  885-4568  Coast News, May 18,1987  Editor:  Both local and Vancouver  papers recently carried another  detennined attempt by the B.C.  Teachers' Federation (BCTF) to  educate the public.  In a quaint ad we learned that  'disrupt' means "to interrupt  the flow or continuity of" and  that Bill 20 disrupts education.  I was glad to learn this new  word as the same day the ads  appeared two of my children  were home from school as the  BCTF had decided to disrupt  their education.  What Bill 20 will actually  disrupt is the BCTF's stranglehold on all the teachers in this  province. The Teaching Profession Act will establish a separate  college of teachers, to regulate  professional matters. The  BCTF will continue to handle  bargaining matters.  The BCTF claims this college  will harass and fire teachers  without due cause. As the governing council of this college  will be made up primarily of  teachers elected to that council  it is difficult to see why they  would turn on members of their  own profession. Nurses, doc  tors, lawyers and other professionals do not find themselves  treated unfairly by their professional organizations.  With annual dues of $10  million, the BCTF wields considerable power. Naturally they  do not want to let any of this  power slip from their grasp, as  it would if a separate college  were established to represent  teachers.  Bill 20 also makes provision  for teachers to join a union  other than the BCTF.  The federation fears that if  membership in their Union is  not mandatory they will lose  many of the teachers who are  tired of having their union dues  spent campaigning for the  NDP, and others who will decline to be part of a union that  champions abortion.  As the BCTF grows increasing militant and political they  will alienate more teachers,  more parents and more of the  general public.  What really needs to be  disrupted is the BCTF's definition of their role in society.  Pam Barnsley  Service better  Editor:  An Open Letter to our Rural  Customers  Many of our customers who  reside in the rural communities  of Canada have been exposed to  a campaign of attention seeking  tactics and misinformation that  has been recently launched  across this country.  This misinformation has  created concern and anxiety  among our customers and many  of our employees, and their  families.  Canada Post will not remove  rural route service from any of  its customers, and let me assure  you that the corporation does  not have any plans to effect  widespread closures of rural offices. That simply is not the  policy.  Canada Post has no intention  of reducing service anywhere in  Canada. In fact, the opposite is  true. The number of postal products outlets will be expande^^  by 50 per cent over the next 10?^'���"���'  years or more.  In the majority of cases,  Canada Post will simply be  changing the method or location of postal services, using the  resources of local private  businesses.  Wherever changes are contemplated, they will arise  because of natural opportunities  such as the resignation, retirement or promotion of a postmaster. In the majority of cases,  when service changes, a community will be given 90 days  consultation so that the views of  residents about service alternatives can be considered.  Parking  Editor:  In your newspaper last week  you noted that the new Gibsons  wharfinger was cancelling all  parking on the government  dock.  Perhaps the Chamber of  Commerce should take a good  look at the detrimental effect  the loss of 40 parking spots will  have on the businesses in the  lower village.  Ian Corrance  Commercial Fisherman  Canada Post's objective will  be to provide "on-site" delivery  service and community identity  will be maintained.  In the vast majority of cases,  the service will be improved or,  at the very least, will be comparable to the existing service.  It is clearly the intention of  Canada Post to provide rural  Canada with a modern and efficient delivery and retail network, providing more outlets  with more convenient extended  hours of operation.  It is our belief that if the  Canadian public is well informed of the corporation's goals  and plans, there will be a greater  level of understanding and cooperation and much less room  for the misinformation and unnecessary fear.  M. Gormick  General Manager  Canada Post  886-7112  709 Hwy 101,.Gibsons  Money  saved  Education Minister Tony  Brummet has instructed school  boards to set aside salary and  other savings resulted from  teacher's job actions.  In a letter dated May 4, he  stated, "Each district will have  in place a trust account for the  Funds for Excellence Program.  I ask you to put into this account the amount set aside as  savings from the teacher's job  actions. Also, I will be providing you with guidelines for  ways in which these special  funds can be used to benefit  pupils in your district."

A Gibsons male has been  charged under the Liquor Act  for supplying minors.  On May 13 an adult Gibsons  male was charged under the  Narcotic Control Act with  possession for the purpose of  trafficking.

SECHELT RCMP  Police have received a request  to patrol the Greenecourt area  during the late evening hours to  prevent vandalism to property.

SCRD welcomes  Hall's bait sales  Henry Hall will be expanding  his live bait business to  Cooper's Green this summer.  At the regular meeting of the  Sunshine Coast Regional  District (SCRD) last Thursday,  directors discussed Hall's application for permission to  locate his bait buoy adjacent to  the boat ramp.  Director Brett McGillivray  agreed that it was a good idea as  long as a clear contract was  written up "putting all the rules  in place." However, Director  Connor urged the board to act  quickly in order to allow Mr.  Hall to take advantage of the  beginning of tourist season this  past weekend.  It was decided that a tem  porary permit would be drawn  up immediately, which would  allow Hall to operate for 30  days, provided he made a  deposit of $500 and provided  evidence of liability insurance.  Before the 30 days is up, the  SCRD will have a contract in  place which will define the  length of tenure, times of operation and what payments, if any,  Hall will make to the district.  Hall already had live bait for  sale at the government wharf in  Porpoise Bay. By-law Enforcement Officer Allan MacPherson  told the Coast News last week  that Hall will be building an additional finger onto the wharf  and will have use of the outside  while the public has use of the  inner side of the finger.

Wood Bay still  concerns Wilson  ��� "The operation at Wood Bay  has very large vessels unloading  very large quantities of fish for  processing and packing and I  think we should look at this  situation very quickly," Area A  Director Gordon Wilson told  the meeting of the regional  district board last Thursday.  The board bad been invited by  Wood Bay Salmon Farms to  visit the operation during  harvesting, but directors were  unable to find time for the field  trip during the short span of  time suggested by the company.  Wilson urged the board to  make time as soon as possible,  but Director McGillivray  pointed out that the two issues  were  separate.   He  suggested  7that Wilson pursue the concern  :of fish processing immediately  and the field trip could be  organized later.  '-'��. In an interview with the  Coast News on Saturday,  Wilson said that he had been  unable to reach the people in  charge at Wood Bay, but in  tends to have a meeting this  week. "We have to sit down  with them and outline clearly  what we understand are the  conditions of their foreshore  lease and their current upland  zoning."  Currently the upland zoning  is RU-2, a light industrial  classification which permits the  salmon farm to process its own  fish. However, if the company  is processing on a commercial  basis, the zoning would have to  be 1-2, the highway access permit may have to be reapplied  for to allow for the increase in  industrial traffic, and their  waste disposal permit for blood  water release into the ocean may  need to be reexamined.  "I just don't want another  huge issue to arise," Wilson explained. "It's important that we  get on top of it right away. Is  this a legally nonconforming  salmon farm in a W-l zone, or  is it a fish processing plant with  the fish farm ancillary to its  operation?"  Teachers settle for 31 %  by Ken Collins  Local teachers have completed contract talks with the  Sunshine Coast School Board  that have given them a 3.1 per  cent increase. Both sides have  stated they are not completely  satisfied with the settlement but  it is something they can live  with.  School Trustee Mewhort, as  spokesman for the school board  bargaining team, stated concern  : for the impact on the communi-  : ty from tax increases.  Sunshine Coast Teachers  Association President Bill Forst  ; said teachers would have liked a  ; larger increase but traded it off  for improvements in professional development funding and  staffing that are going to improve education. He said their  settlement appears to be below  the provincial average and they  are among the lowest paid  teachers anyway.  Still to be discussed is the  membership protection package  which has to do with Bill 20  clauses.

I am at Chatelech Secondary School waiting the start of  the Drug and Alcohol Abuse  Workshops.  At 9 am the session opens.  Included in the speakers is Ben  Pierre from the Sechelt Indian  Band. It is the Band who have  covered almost all the costs.  At 9:30, after the opening  speeches I approach the man  given much of the credit for  pulling this thing together along  with Chateletch Principal Brian  Butcher. This man's name is  also Brian Butcher but he can be  recognized by the use of the  middle initial L.  "All drug use is abuse," he  states. He goes on to explain  that drugs make you feel better  than you really do. When you  come down you feel much  worse than before you took  them. Eventually you need to  take drugs just to feel normal.  Well over 400 persons are in  attendance so far, mostly young  people but a noticable number  of adults. There are 26  workshops but it is only possible to attend five sessions. I  would miss 21 experiences. I  decide for the first item on the  list.  Sergeant Simpson of the  RCMP is giving a presentation  in Room 111. Specific drugs are  being displayed and discussed.  "Opiates slow body functions  down. Cocaine speeds body  functions up, too much and  your heart is likely to explode."  He talks about the impurities  and diversity of strength in  street drugs.  "Never taste the stuff in spite  of what you see on television,"  he warns, "Some substances  can absorb through your skin."  Simpson is talking about  world wide drug routes. He is  showing slides of private armies  in the Golden Triangle. He is  saying they are there because of  the drug trade.  The police need more power  in order to be effective in their  job. They are hampered by not  being able to search suspects.  They want the ability to seize  property purchased from the  profits of drug trafficking. They  see things like 13 and 14 year  old prostitutes and 12 year old  heroin addicts. They are  frustrated when they risk their  lives and suspects go free.  I attend a session where a  young looking woman tells of  being a needle freak. She had  been sexually abused by her  father. She was removed to a  foster home where she was  again abused. She developed a  low self-image and began to put  herself in victim situations. She  made a conscious decision to  destroy herself with drugs. She  stopped by making a conscious  choice to live.  In one of the sessions I learn  about enabling. "Enabling is a  destructive  form  of helping.  Any acts that help an alcoholic  continue drinking, prevent the  alcoholic from suffering the  consequences or in any way  make it easier for an alcoholic  to continue drinking are considered enabling behaviours."  In his closing speech at 8 in  the evening Mr. Brian Butcher,  principal of Chatelech, ensured  the participants that the high  school was not a hotbed of drug  and alcohol abuse. He did,  however, express the feeling  that the problems which did exist could be better addressed.  Where do we go from here?  "You can't say - school, fix  it!" Mr. Butcher said. It has to  go out to the community.  "Don't sit back and let someone else do it, be part of it."

Chuck Scott, from  the Diving Locker, approached  council last month, with the  suggestion that the installation  of washroom facilities at the  point could alleviate the problem of divers, who right noy/  either use the bushes or knock  on nearby doors when they need  the use of a bathroom.   ���- ^  At that time, council looked  into the possibility of installing  porta-potties but residents objected to the location. Alderman Mike Shanks then looked  into the possibility of locating  permanent facilities on a nearby  acre of municipal park land, but  at last week's meeting of the  Parks Committee, he told council that several residents are  firmly against that idea, too.  Mayor Bud Koch pointed out  that the parcel under discussion  was designated as a park on the  municipality's map and asked,  "Why are we spending all this  money attracting tourism? You  can't tell people 'Come, but  don't come here'."  Chuck Scott told the Coast  News that his suggestion had  been made for the purpose of  making things pleasanter for  local residents. "People have  been diving off Tuwanek Point  for at least 15 years that I know  of," he said. "They'll keep on  coming there whether or not  there are washrooms."  While Scott is being used in  an advisory capacity, he pointed  out that most of these divers  come from off the peninsula  and many of them don't have  any contact with him.  Alderman Shanks told council that he would try to bring  some recommendations to their  regular meeting this week.
