 ���i^Pi.m< A__" *���**", ***5 #W*<jga2  Last Tuesday evening saw the planting of a lodge-pole pine tree for  an arboretum at Hackett Park in Sechelt and the presentation of  the Fred Dietrich Memorial Trophy to the Sechelt Junior Forest  Wardens for being the best B.C. Club for 1985-86. This was the  third annual planting ceremony for the Sechelt Junior Forest  Lottery funds granted  Wardens Club and was attended by many Forest related guests  along with Mayor Bud Koch who planted this year's tree. Inset:  Jack Scrivner, Chief Warden for B.C. and Bert Gayle, Vice-  President, Canadian Forest Products Limited present the trophy to  Sechelt's Junior Forest Wardens. ���Kent Sheridan photo  Ski Club's cake gets icing  The icing on the cake at the  highly, successful Qpenv House,  held by Tetrahedron Ski CIud at  the airport on Saturday was the  announcement that the group  has received a $20,000 Lottery  Fund grant to assist with the  construction of cross-country  skiing and hiking trails and four  log cabins in the Tannis Lake  area of the Sunshine Coast.  "That's just what we need to  get us over the top," exclaimed  an obviously delighted project  coordinator George Smith.  To add icing to the icing,  Sechelt Mayor Bud Koch, in  praising the project and what it  wilj^.d^  announced that ''if interim fi-  niancing is required until your  grant   comes   through,   the  municipality of Sechelt will act  as a bridge financer."  A federal grant totalling  $152,621 has already been  received via the Job Development Program, allowing the hiring of eight workers, including  Smith, and professional log  builder Paul Anslow, under  whose tutelage four log cabins  have been constructed.  Currently situated at the air  port, these will soon be  dismantled and moved to-:'four,  different sites in the back country around Batchelor Lake,  Lower McNair Lake and Edwards Lake, where they will be  reassembled and roofed. The  trail system will then be constructed, with the end of October the goal for completion.  In a press release issued about  the awarding of the Lottery  Fund grant, MLA Harold Long  stated, "This is an outstanding  project. Local support and contributions have been phenomenal." Gifts of logs, services,  Vic Bonaguro had lots of young helpers to draw winners in Tetrahedron Ski Club's raffle held at their  Open House at the airport last Saturday. Winners were: Three Cords of Wood: Clancy McDougal; One  Cord of Fir each: Mike Lister and David Pinkney; One Cord Mixed Wood: Ron and Dot Spencer. Huge  bundles of kindling were won by Keith Besgrove, Bill Lennon, W. Watt, Andrea Dube, Linda Klausen  and Ron and Dot Spencer. ���Fran Bumside photo  Coast kiln closer  A kiln to add value to wood  exported from the Sunshine  Coast and a Forestry Industrial  Park both seem likely acquisitions on the Sunshine Coast, the  Coast News learned last week at  a Forestry Committee meeting  of the Economic Development  Commission.  Ray Gazeley, Senior Forester  for Canadian Forest Products,  told the committee that the  meetings he was holding with  various mills on the Coast  showed an enthusiasm for participating in the kiln project  which was generally seen as being an economically attractive  and viable proposal.  Representatives of the  Forestry Commitee will have a  meeting with officials of the  Ministry of Forests in Victoria  on May 25 to pursue its objectives.  Regional Director Peggy  Connor reported that the Airport Committee, on which she  sits, had accepted advice from  the Forestry Committee that a  forest consultant be hired to  evaluate the timber which  should be harvested in the  development of the airport.  and cash donations from the  community have totalled close  ' tO $50;000. ���     ���, ���i'-:-v-'.7:^-  Ministry of Parks representative Mel Turner has been  quoted as saying, "You have  put the Sunshine Coast five  years ahead with this project.  Of all the areas in the lower  mainland, this is the best crosscountry ski area we've got."  The trails will provide year-  round recreation, opening up  some of the finest plateau, lake  and alpine areas in the province.  Construction  millions  leaving  Coast  Millions of dollars are being  lost to the local economy  because of provincial bonding  requirements on contracting  work which virtually exclude  small but competent local contractors bidding for government  work.  In an appearance before the  Economic Development Commission (EDC), last week, Bill  Merrick of Suncoast Electric  brought the matter to the  EDC's attention.  "Bonding requirements make  it impossible for small contractors to get the work," Merrick  told the EDC. "Our taxes pay  for it but the money goes  straight off the Sunshine  Coast."  Merrick pointed to such big  ticket items as the expansion of  St. Mary's Hospital, Capilano  College's new building, the  Shorncliffe Extended Care  Facility, and the Gibsons  Sewage Treatment Plant as examples of government funded  projects from which local contractors were excluded.  Members of the EDC expressed their concern and sympathy with Merrick's case and  undertook to consider the problem immediately. One suggestion was that an association of  small contractors might be  formed which could have  enough financial clout to meet  bonding reqirements.  Films go elsewhere  Coast missing  filming boat  Paul Murphy of Sunshine  Coast Productions has pointed  out to the regional Economic  Development Commission  (EDC) that the Sunshine Coast  is missing out on the lucrative  activity in the province of B.C.  involved in the making of  feature films.  Backing up his letter with a  personal appearance at the  meeting held in the Pebbles  Restaurant on Friday, May 8,  Murphy pointed out that the  filming of the thriller Suspect  which was set entirely in Sechelt  is being planned for Vancouver  and Denrnan Island.  "Film making is a small clean  industry which leaves millions  of dollars behind and then is  In Sechelt  gone," Murphy reminded the  EDC, "and we are missing the ;  boat."  Journalist Al Price who was;  present, told the meeting that he  understood that union difficulties were behind the decision not to film in Sechelt, but  Murphy reiterated his view that  the problem was that the Sunshine Coast had just not been  active enough in marketing  itself.  EDC Chairman Maurice  Egan assisgned Community  Development Officer Irene  Lugsdin to work with Murphy  to raise the awarness of the film  industry about the Sunshine  Coast's filmic possibilities  without delay.  Koch queries  revitalization  Chairman of the Sechelt  Revitalization Committee, Bill  Bailey, addressed Sechelt Council at last Wednesday's meeting  and requested that the municipal district proceed with drawing up a by-law which would see  the downtown core become a  designated revitalization area.  This area would include Inlet  Avenue from Teredo Street to  Dolphin Street, Dolphin Street  from Inlet to Wharf, and  Cowrie Street from Trail  Avehueio Wharf.   ���*-���     -     . ;  The cost of improvements  made in the designated area will  be $141,700 to the municipal  district, $116,700 to property  owners and $41,600 to the  Ministry of Municipal Affairs.  The ministry offers a special  low interest loan for these kinds  of projects, where repayment is  spread over 10 years with the  first two years being interest  free. Bailey told council that the  actual cost to a single lot property owner would be 95 cents  per day.  Additional grants are also  available to property owners in  the designated area for facade  improvements and for promotion of the   downtown area.  Mayor Bud Koch told Bailey  that while he accepted the fact  that the revitalization committee had worked hard on the project and know what they are doing, he would have felt more  "comfortable" if all the property owners and tenants had been  approached before drafting the  by-law. :7  Bailey assured him, "We've  gotten to most of the people involved.  We believe we have  : dohe-everything we can to contact everyone, possible."  Once the by-law is drafted, it  will generate a petition which is  circulated to all registered property owners. A 50 per cent  negative vote by the owners  would defeat the by-law, Administrator Malcolm Shanks explained to the meeting.  The information package  which accompanied Bailey's address, contained the fact that  "throughout B.C., successful  revitalization programs have led  to an average increase iin  business of 10 to 25 per cent."  It was accompanied by conceptual drawings showing trees and  picnic tables on a new spruced  up Cowrie Street.  The Coast had its own version of Old Faithful for several days last  week as Garry Popp flushed the new SCRD waterline through  Roberts Creek several times each hour. Resident hook-ups should  be completed within the next few weeks. ���Fran Bumside photo  .:/(  ) Coast News, May 11,1987  Dangerous  tendency  Contrary to the belief in some quarters, editorial writers  do not necessarily enjoy levelling charges at local government figures, especially when the editorial writer in question has some experience in the exhausting and demanding  field of local government where the work is hard and  challenging and the rewards are' few.  Nonetheless, there does seem to be a dangerous  slackness in the awareness of some of our elected officials  as to what constitutes conflict of interest and, though  abuses may be accidental and innocent at first, if the  tendency is not corrected real abuse is inevitable.  A case in point involved this week's reversal of policy by  Gibsons Council on foreshore leases. It appears from the  report carried on Page Seven that Alderman Peterson participated vigorously for the granting of foreshore leases,  though he abstained in the voting. He would have been  better advised to say nothing and the mayor, had she been  on her toes would have so advised him.  It begins to appear as though Gibsons Council has  begun to vote in a block or as a flock, with only Alderman  Maxwell continuing to hew to an independent line. That is  a serious weakening of council.  We note that another reversal being contemplated involves the town's parking by-law. Again there is some indication that an alderman is lobbying on council for his  own interest. It is a very dangerous tendency.  A buoyant Spring  There is a heaven-sent buoyancy in the air in this most  beautiful of rememberd Springtimes.  The summer like weather, if we had summer weather  with all of the flowering trees in bloom, is a big part of the  story, but there is also the fact that the province of British  Columbia is beginning to pull itself out of the economic  doldrums.  From one end of the Sunshine Coast to the other people  are telling themselves and each other that things are looking up.  Only our governments can burst this glorious bubble.  Save us from their hyperactivity.  ���'''.  '-',' - /-'' "/''-ill  \  5 YEARS AGO  The newly-appointed Economic Development Commissioner for the Sunshine Coast, Oddvin Vedo, comes  to this area after three and a half years in the same position in the Bulkley-Nechako Regional District.  British Columbia New Democrat Ray Skelly last week  condemned the recent B.C. government announcement  of health care cutbacks resulting in the closing down of  1200 beds and laying off 3000 employees to cover a $100  million financing shortage.  The needs of a growing area and modified regulations  by the organization responsible for fire fighting certification may mean a costly upgrading of the fire  fighting facilities in the West Howe Sound Fire Protection District in the immediate future.  10 YEARS AGO  Following a check-up of operations it has been deemed necessary to relinquish the Gibsons representative  on the airport commission. Lack of meetings and inadequate financial reports are cited.  Egmont School, now housing only eight students, will  be closed at the end of this term. The decision was  made at a recent school board meeting. Pupils will attend Madeira Park schools.  20 YEARS AGO  "Suspense is mounting again and it has reached the  $25 door prize plateau which means that Bingo is again  the mecca of long shot specialists."  "It was sunny and warm without a breath of wind, the  April afternoon Garden Bay Lodge burned to the  ground." Three days before the Pender Harbour Board  of Trade had held its first meeting to sound out public  opinion about the formation of a Volunteer Fire Department. Few attended.  30 YEARS AGO  Requiem mass for Chief Gaspard John of the Sechelt  Indians was celebrated recently. Chief John, who had  been chief for 30 years, died at the age of 73.  Proposed closing of the waters from Siwash Rock to  Salmon Rock to commercial fishermen is protested by  Gibsons fishermen on the grounds that such a closure  would cause them to have to go futher north.  40 YEARS AGO  Two local young men are taking a whirl at recreation.  A new pool room has been installed over the new Standard Oil garage in Sechelt.  Addressing constituents here, B.M. Maclntyre, MLA,  held out little hope for early construction of a hospital  close to Gibsons. He pointed out there was just a  "Chinaman's Chance" of the government changing its  mind on this important matter.  fi  The Sunshine  j  Publisher & Managing Editor Co-Publisher  John Burnside M.M.

The sidewinder utilizes a propeller shaft  that is capable of rotating 360 degrees, which gives the craft exceptional manueverability. Camp-run or mixed specie bundled log  tows from as far north as Bute Inlet, are brought to Langdale by  tug boat. The sidewinder breaks down the mixed specie bundles,  sorts the logs according to specie and stows them inside the  'pockets'. The logs are scaled and taken to the bundling machine  where 40 to 60 logs of the same specie are wire tied into bundles.  The bundles are stowed into 66 foot by 66 foot sections with, on  average, six sections forming a boom. The sectioned log booms are  coupled together with chains and towed, by tug, to Terminal's  sawmill at Mitchell Island on the Fraser River.    ���Kent Sheridan photo  Maryanne's Viewpoint  Dog owners must be responsible  by Maryanne West  Legislation which will make  dog owners legally responsible  for the actions of their pets is  long overdue.  Let's face it, our dogs,  however lovable, do have some  bad habits, which, if not controlled can make them a  nuisance to the neighbours and  the community at large.  When we first moved to  Gower in the 50's the  neighbours looked with  understandable apprehension at  our large exuberant boxer. One  of them found an appropriates:  occasion to warn us that if'we  let him roam the countryside  and romp all over people's  gardens, someone would shoot  him.  While I don't agree with such  vigilante actions I can well  understand the impulse. I've felt  murderously inclined towards  my own when they cavort  across the garden, carelessly  trampling and uprooting those  precious, tender young plants;  and towards dogs trespassing on  my property when I'm trying to  train a puppy to stay home  within his boundaries.  Legislation which would  make it a chargeable offence for  dogs to create a nuisance by  Peace notes  barking continually or roaming  at large as well as making unprovoked attacks on people or  other animals would go a long  way to solving our dog problem  and save us a lot of tax money.  A couple of appearances in  court to account for your pet's  behaviour would quickly bring  dog owners to an understanding  of their responsibilities.  While the large breeds are  currently getting bad press the  law should apply to all dogs.  Large dogs are not necessarily  more agressive than small ones.  There was some talk of  allowing a witness to a dog fight  shoot the aggressor, but let's  not over-react to the recent incidents involving pit bulls, and  leave the responsibility for  shooting an animal to the  police.  A dog fight is a frightening  situation but, despite the terrifying noise, it's generally mostly  "sound and fury, signifying  nothing" more than a territorial  spat.  Few animals fight to the  death with their own species,  but anyone unlucky enough to  have a dog with killer tendencies  would be well advised to have it  put down. A country environment is likely to provide it with  more, not less, opportunity to  get into trouble.  The myth dies hard that it's  alright to let your dog run free  in the country. They not only  chase anything that moves but  as anyone who has two dogs  knows even two constitute a  pack and then even the best  bred and domesticated revert to  their primal instincts.  Vancouver  Poem  "Vancouver is an un-Canadian city,"  Betty had said, although probably  thinking about something quite different,  and I, thinking about something different,  had agreed ��� a conversation of no  importance except that afterwards  it came to us that it must have been the reason  the cabbie who 'd driven us in from the airport  practically spat in our faces when we paid him:  he was an East Indian, and people  who looked vaguely like us  must have hurt him so badly that  he could mistake himself for  a mountain range or the Pacific Ocean.  A Id en Nowlan  For Elizabeth Brewster  Growing up with the bomb  J  by Alan Wilson  I was 10 years old when the  world was brought to the brink  of nuclear war by the Cuban  Missile Crisis. I remember vividly the nightmarish image of  the flash that I fully expected  would end everything. I remember the air-raid drills in school,  with kids taught to shelter under  their desks. I remember talk of  evacuation plans.  Needless to say, the resolution of the crisis was a tremendous relief. But while the fear  diminished, it never actually  went away. I was left with the  sense that the world was mortal  and that another crisis could  flare up at any time. The  overhanging threat of nuclear  war had become a fact of life.  Much has been written about  the extent to which the nuclear  threat, and especially the Cuban  Missile Crisis, created a state of  hopelessness in the baby-boom  generation, leading to escapism,  cultism, drug taking, flaunting  of authority, and abandonment  of serious career planning, even  to suicide.  It would probably be wrong  to pin all the blame for this  behaviour on nuclear weapons,  yet, on the basis of many conversations with my cohorts, I  can attest to the fact that many  of us definitely felt the imminence of nuclear war. This  fear strongly coloured our attitude to school, the family to  work and career, to govern  ment} in short, to society as a  whole.'  Why bother to work or plan  if we were just going to be  blown up? Why think ahead  when perhaps only a few years  remained in which to enjoy life?  When parents and teachers  spoke of discipline, patience,  hard work, and serious study, it  was just a bad joke.  I'm quite sure that this was  one reason that many of us  engaged in activities which  weren't particularly 'edifying'.  Why study, why work, why  save, why even care? And  perhaps most importantly, why  have kids? Many delayed having children until the biological  clock began to toll.  Now, over 20 years later,  there has been a resurgence of  concern about the nuclear  threat. One reason for this may  be that those of us who finally  decided to risk having children  have now found our concerns  sharply focused on their future.  Our parents too, having at last  been gifted with the long-  awaited young ones, are similarly realizing the horror that is  posed to fall on these young  lives.  After all, it is our children  who inspire us, who renew us  with all their enthusiasm, their  irrepressible energy, their  demands, their questions, their  excitement for life. It is the caring and urgent wish for the best  for them that motivates so  much of what we do. And quite  probably this has motivated the  new outrage of the 80's as the  realization has spread that the  nuclear threat hasn't lessened  over the past 20 years, but indeed has silently multiplied to  the point that we live with  50,000 warheads and hair-  trigger launching policies.  Are we to despair again? Are  we to avoid the terror by  escapism? Not now. Not now  that we have irrevocably cast  our lot with life. Not now that  we have launched our own offspring into the world. We have  no choice but to work to ensure  their future. It's as cut and dried  as that. We must assert in the  strongest possible terms, by action if necessary, that our  children have a right to life.  And that right must be extended  to all children everywhere.  Modern parents and grandparents obviously have a strong  motivation to work for Peace.  But what about today's teenagers? How do they respond to  the nuclear threat? Are they as  despairing and apathetic as we  were? Are they as escapist and  devil-may-care as years ago?  Are they ridden by nightmares?  Many researchers are now  turning up evidence which clearly shows that the fear of nuclear  war is one of the leading apprehensions afflicting young  people. Many students say they  believe nuclear war will occur in  their lifetime.  It is understandable that  parents and teachers have shied  away from this difficult area.  We have tried to protect our  children from this terrifying  knowledge. Well, it turns out  that they know about it anyway.  And what's worse, because of  our silence, they are suffering  from what may be an unnecessary hopelessness. This explains why recent research  shows that students gain considerable psychological benefit  by an open discussion of the  nuclear threat.  Helping students acknowledge their fears, and helping  them explore possible ways in  which they can affect the  future, seems to restore their  sense of hope and purpose.  Although the value of Peace  Education, as it has come to be  called, is not yet widely appreciated, at least the taboo of  silence is finally beginning to  fade. An example of this is the  province-wide Peace Education  curriculum in Quebec which has  spawned a new breed of hopeful  activism among the students of  that province.  This in turn has spawned the  cross-country tour by four  Montreal high school students,  part of a group called SAGE  (Students Against Global Extermination). They have already  visited some 150 Canadian high  schools since September to  discuss the nuclear threat and  they report an overwhelmingly  positive reception from both  students and teachers. Coast News, May 11,1987  Editor:  I am writing this letter to ask  your readers to do a favour for  myself and themselves.  I lived in Pender Harbour for  a number of years, and am now  residing in another small tourist  and fishing community called  Port Dover which is located in  southern Ontario on Lake Erie.  Though the similarities are  many, the differences are great.  The residents here, for many  years, have turned the other  cheek towards pollution and its  offenders. The beach I live on is  now practically unusable.  This is due to the old car  frames buried in the sand, the  drainage pipes (exposed for all  to see) coming from the lake-  shore cottages, and a variety of  other garbage ranging from old  washers to everyday household  garbage.  Many of the year round  residents don't use the beaches  or swim in the water, and yet  they expect their number one  business (tourism) to return year  after year, and do what they  themselves won't.  When I ask the people of  Port Dover what they think of  the pollution, their attitude is  that it is acceptable and there is  little or nothing they can do  about it.  This problem didn't happen  overnight, it took many years to  develop and will take many  years to change. But first, it  needs the strength and voices of  its people.  The favour is this. That the  people of the Sunshine Coast  speak out against this serious  problem (pollution) be it your  neighbour or the government.  Now! While they still can and  help keep the Coast as beautiful  as it is today, for many, many  years to come.  Steven Adamson  Port Dover, Ontario  For free ferries  Editor's note: a copy of the  following was received for  pubiication.  The Honourable Cliff Michael  Minister of Transportation  Parliament Buildings  Victoria, BC  Dear Sir:  Thanks for the answer to my  letter of March 17. In it you  state that the. subsidy level on  the Langdale/Horseshoe Bay  run is 34 per cent, re: the interior (farefree) ferries. You  write that "I passed your question along to our financial staff.  This information is extremely  complicated as there are the  connecting highway links  associated with the interior fer  ries  For   simplicity   we   should  compare apples with apples, or  in this case percentages. This is  of course 34 per cent on our  ferry and 100 per cent on the interior ferries.  But you still refuse to entertain the core question, and I  pose it once more: by what  reasoning do you justify the  long hours of service on all the  interior ferries free of charge,  while ours are restricted to two  eight hour shifts?  Again I would like to point  out that our ferry is an absolute  necessity while the interior ones  are at best a convenience to  their patrons.  Again eagerly awaiting your  reply (at least you do answer,  unlike our MLA).  Joe P. Kiene  Curtain conies down  Editor:  With Anton Kuerti's magnificent finale for Countryside  Concerts still ringing in many  ears, this seems a good time to  give a few bouquets.  We would like to thank the  local press for great work with  the paid advertising and for  their editorial coverage of this  significant series of musical  events.  Thanks also to the volunteers  at the Hunter Gallery and Arts  Centre and to curators Joan  Marshall, Donna Shugar and  :��� Kathryn Campbell for their help  with ticket sales.  We thank Pam and Ray  Boothroyd of the Twilight  Theatre for more 'behind the  scenes' work than anyone is  aware of.  The concerts could not have  been presented without the  sponsorship of the cultural services branch of the Ministry of  Tourism. We thank them and  Shop Easy, Sechelt, our good  corporate citizen whose sponsorship made an extra concert  available to subscribers at no  extra cost.  So many individuals helped  with moving chairs for performers, showing patrons to  their seats, making posters and  numerous other chores that it  would take too much space to  name them, but their help is appreciated.  Last but not least, we thank  the audiences who have made  the 1986/87 series the best ever.  And we are delighted to announce that Shop Easy will  sponsor the exciting  1987/88  series7 now being finalized.  Details will be announced in the  July or August calendar sent to  all Arts Council members, and  members will have priority  booking privileges.  If you are not a member,  drop into the Hunter Gallery,  Gibsons or the Arts Centre in  Sechelt to join.  Allan Crean-Crane  Music Coordinator  Sunshine Coast Arts Council  Support  Editor:  We are enclosing our voluntary subscription ($25) as a  token of our appreciation of the  excellent reporting being so consistently carried out by the  Coast News.  Congratulations particularly  on this week's issue which brings to our attention so many  pertinent issues affecting the  Sunshine Coast.  Vincent & Mary Shannon  Criticism  Editor:  I feel that there is far too  much advertising in your paper.  On most of the pages there are  more ads than articles. If I were  you, I would look into this problem. Although I appreciate  this paper, it looks more like a  flyer than a paper.

As Mother's Day is celebrated on May 10 I have the  privilege of asking you to share  with me a way of honouring  and remembering our mothers.  As a youngster and on into  my own mother and grand-  motherhood I wore the  customary red carnation signifying my mother was still alive.  Now that she is gone I still like  to remember her in a practical  way...by restoring someone to  sight who is blind.  Do you realize what a chain  reaction is set off when sight is  restored?  There is a truism which says:  Give man a fish and he can eat  for a day, but teach him how to  fish and he can feed his family.  In a similar fashion as $25  gift can restore eyesight to a  cataract blind person, enabling  that person to work and thus be  able to feed and support a family. There are many people in the  developing countries who are  curably blind. Can we in  Canada comprehend 40 million  blind people, almost twice our  population, half of which are  curable if funds were available.  It's hard to imagine that many  blind people but we can do  something about it.  For a $25 (tax deductible)  donation to the Canadian charity Operation Eyesight Universal, will pay for sight restoring  cataract surgery, drugs,  hospitalization, special glasses  and follow-up care for the patient.  A patient identification card  signed by the attending surgeon  will be sent to you, or if you  choose to your mother, giving  the name, sex, age and town or  village of the one restored to  sight.  Why don't you plan on  honouring your mother or her  memory in this way?  Send to Operation Eyesight  Universal, Box 123, Station M,  Calgary, Alberta T2P 2H6.  Gertrude Roberts  Guatemala Indians massacred  Editor:  I am shocked by a recent  revelation of a hot war which  has been burning under the surface of a cold war for many  years. It is in Guatemala, a  country of five million Spanish-  speaking, Roman Catholic citizens. Despite an outward  pretence of democracy, it is a  military dictatorship of surpassing brutality.  Sixty per cent of the total  population are of the ancient  tribe of Maya Indians regarded  by the dictators as vermin which  should be systematically exterminated. Death squads zealously keep this project in motion.  All Catholic priests who have  spoken out on behalf of basic  human rights have already been  killed.  In 1950, when Guatemala  was a genuine democratic  republic, Jacobo Arbenz  became president. Land reform  was high on his agenda. This  meant the redistribution of idle  portions of the great haciendas  belonging to the landed gentry,  but it also threatened the  holdings of powerful transnational giants who had invested in the riph farm lands of  Guatemala. For this indiscretion, the CIA quickly ousted  Jacobo Arbenz from his native  land. (It has not escaped  scrutiny that the United Fruit  Company has connections with  the Dulles family. While John  Foster Dulles was Secretary of  State, his brother was Director  of the CIA.) The current president of Guatemala is Venicio  Cerezo, subservient to the army  generals.  The giant investors have also  invested in the plentiful supply  of labour for their fruit farms  and coffee plantations, labour  available at starvation wages.  This promotes another sector of  the population for placement on  the death lists; trade union  organizers.   They   are   conve  niently   stigmatized   as   communists.  With the death lists growing  longer, the urge to seek refuge  in other countries is growing  stronger. It isn't easy. Since the  army coup in 1954, the death  squads have murdered 100,000  citizens; 38,000 have disappeared with no trace; 200,000  have escaped from the country.  For the whole story of  Guatemala's woe, I recommend  an article entitled Escape to  Canada by a Canadian investigative journalist, Ronald  Wright. Look for it in the May  issue of Saturday Night. Read it  and be enlightened.  Isabel Ralph  Rural Post Offices essential  Editor's Note: A copy of the  following letter was received for  publication.  Open letter to the Honourable  Prime Minister Mulroney and  the Honourable Minister Andre  We received your large, colourful (blue) and expensive  paper entitled The Mail. Did  everyone in Canada get one? If  so, you spent an awful lot of  our money saying nothing. You  and your public relations people  should be ashamed. Everyone  likes pictures but the photographs in it have no meaning or  application.  The Mail, your paper, is  repetitious, vacuous, and demeaning to the intelligence of  rural people. Have you read  your two articles on the front  page? We can not and will not  be tranquilized by this soft soap  jargon.  Petitions to preserve rural  post offices are being circulated  and 11,000 signatures have been  sent to Ottawa. By next week  there will be more, many more,  as people in Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba are also  collecting petition signatures. It  is far harder, as you know, to  collect that many signatures in  small communities than it is in  larger towns and cities.  Save money where it should  be saved and increase and improve the services that are profitable. Your present actions  have inflamed the countryside.  Older people, in particular, are  extremely threatened and upset  by your strangling the country  this way.  It is an old humane custom to  allow someone who has treated  you badly a reasonable escape  route. The route that is clearly  required and accessible to you,  and which, incidentally, would  be politically astute, is to reverse  your policy and to insure the  continued existence of rural  post offices as they exist today  and thus contribute to the well-  being of the rural communities  in Canada.  If you wish to retain the support and the respect of rural  Canadians this  is  your only  alternative.  Have you the courage and the  wisdom?

Editor:  The night of May 23, 1979,  he said, "We will build the party hopefully, slightly left of centre".  In defeat, those were the  words of Pierre Elliott Trudeau.  Love him or hate him, he was  back in power in less than one  year.  Today, the left of centre has  widened with a vengeance as  witness the recent national  Liberal Convention where 60  per cent of the delegates were  "first timers" who handed endorsement to Turner's leadership and in exchange saddled  him with left wing resolutions  on NATO and the CRUISE as  the price for glory.  ProvinciaUy these past few  years certain elements of the  teaching profession not able to  hold sway in the NDP have set  their sights on usurping what is  left of the Liberal Party in  British Columbia.  One such leadership hopeful  wants to lead the party to the  "radical centre" which he  defined as "radical in its approach to problem solving as  opposed to criticizing".  Murmurs from the backrooms   suggest   "radical   ap  proaches" lead to "radical consequences" which is hardly  what the greatest of all prime  ministers had in mind.

There has been much hand-  wringing and many crocodile  tears shed by the government  and some school boards about  "the disruption of educational  services and the illegality of the  one day study session".  Teachers and public education have been under continuous attack by the Social  Credit government for years  now. There has been cutback  after cutback until now B.C.  has some of the lowest per  capita funding for public education in Canada. Subsidies to big  business are more important to  them than good education for  young people.  Teachers, through the B.C.  Teachers' Federation (BCTF),  have defended themselves and  consistently spoken up for  quality public education.  Bill 20 destroys the BCTF  and is designed to stop teachers  from being effective defenders  of education for our children.  It is a very valuable learning  experience for students to see  their educators take a stand for  democratic rights. If more people had been willing to stand up  to unjust laws there wouldn't  have been a Mussollini or a  Hitler.  Let's hope the teachers action  is an indication that the people  of B.C. will not allow their  rights to be trampled on with  Bills 19 and 20.  The teachers deserve our congratulations!

Canada  Sr����S  :*%*��  JF  ��X  ��-*jP,<$*i<  as*  #f**\* ��������� Coast News, May 11,1987  ease stand reversed  In spite of a firm stand taken  by Gibsons Council over the  past few years against the granting of foreshore leases in Gibsons Harbour, two such leases  were given the go ahead at last  week's council meeting. The  decision was prompted by a letter from the Ministry of Forests  and Lands which asked the  town to either give their approval for the leases or arrange  to have the wharves, which have  been built on them, removed.  John Hanson of Pebbles  Realty spoke to council about  one of the leases. He outlined  the documented history of the  upland property that is currently owned by Mr. Wallner, and  the water lease in front of the  property which had a log float  on it as early as 1970.  Throughout the years the  float was removed and a wharf  put in its place. The change was  approved both by the Town of  Gibsons and the Navigational  Waters Protection Branch.  However, a foreshore lease was  never applied for.  Alderman Norm Peterson  told council that he had handled  the property at that time and the  understanding had been that no  such lease was required.  Alderman Bob Maxwell  spoke against the motion to approve the granting of the  Wallner foreshore lease and  another which has a similar  history, pointing out that the  property owners had enjoyed  the benefits of the foreshore for  about 15 years without paying  the taxes collected on foreshore  leases.  Now that the upland properties were for sale, he said, the  property value would be greatly  increased if the foreshore leases  were attached.  Alderman Peterson, however, maintained that town  councils had given their approval of the structures in the  past, had not at any time asked  that they be removed, and that  the present council had been  made aware of their existence  by Planner Rob Buchan after a  survey of foreshore leases last  year.  The motion for approval  passed with Maxwell opposed  and Peterson abstaining.

It takes very little prompting  for her to recall some of her  past activities, from schooling  in France and life in Northern  Ontario in the first years of this  century, to helping Doctor Fred  Inglis here in the first medical  practice.  Many a grandmother now  can remember her as the strict  choir leader of their youth, and  many a grandfather has had  their Legion medals straightened by her during the eight years  she was Sergeant At Arms.  She was also awarded the  Meritorius Service Award.  It is wonderful to sit and  listen to these stories that seem  so far removed from 1987.

Rd. , Gibsons Landing       886-8229  Gibsons leads in funds challenge  by George Cooper, 886-8520  The fund raising challenge  issued by Powell River to  neighbouring municipalities on  the circle tour route was  belatedly accepted by Gibsons.  And, at last count, Lilian  Kunstler tell us, Gibsons was  leading in collection of money  per capita for the Rick Hansen  Spinal Research fund.  By the time the challenge  period ends on May 23, Gibsons  can still have more projects to  add to the Rick Hansen fund.  Elphinstone students plan  one, a wheelathon, for this  Saturday, May 16, to take place  in the vicinity of the helicopter  pad at the Sunnycrest Mall  parking lot between 10 am and  2 pm.  The wheelathon, a relay race  in wheelchairs, will be a fun  contest to attract spectators as  well as competing teams. It is  hoped athletic groups, perhaps  the firemen and the RCMP and  others will join in this fun event.  There will be concessions to  add to the enjoyment of the carnival theme. And Andy's  Restaurant is donating a percentage of every pizza sold that  day.  The relay contestants will  wheel for pledges. Get going.  More information from Phill  at 886-2151 or from Lilian at  886-9058.  ' You can also make donations  to the Rick Hansen fund at one  of these places in Gibsons: the  Bank of Montreal, the Royal  Bank, Sunshine Coast Credit  Union, and Town Hall.  NAVY LEAGUE  The Navy League provides a  year-round program for boys  and girls, ages 10 to 13. Lieutenant Lira Cleland of Gibsons,  the commanding officer, says  that training courses are sup-  re_ijf5a  plied by the Department of  Defence but that funding is left  to the local groups.  "Our local corps are supported by service organizations  like the Legion for instance,"  she says, "and by our own projects."  This past year 15 youngsters  have met Tuesdays in the  United Church hall to learn how  to tie knots, navigation, first  aid, and drill. Several times a  season outdoor sessions in  wilderness survival are held.  In the summer, the corps  takes to the salt chuck for sailing and boating. The corps' two  flying juniors provide the training in rowing and performing  coxswain duties, and a sailboat  owned by one of the corps' officers provides day trips after  there has been thorough dry  land training.  During winter training,  there's a field trip every other  month like the one recently to  the Vancouver Maritime  Museum to see the Mary Rose  exhibits.  The corps have just been "on  board" at the old Davis Bay  school, courtesy of the Seaforth  cadets, which means they were  hosts to members of two visiting  corps, one from Vancouver and  the other from North Vancouver.  Lieutenants Lira Cleland,  Pam Gregorchuk, and Pat  Camposano donate their energy  and time to this community service.  The annual inspection will be  held June 7 in Gibsons.  WILDLIFE CLUB  The Gibsons Wildlife Club  will sell tickets in a province-  wide raffle this May 14, 15 and  16 (Thursday to Saturday). The  raffle proceeds will be used in  conservation and education in  the defence of the environment.  Prizes lead off with a four  wheel drive Jeep, followed by  15 other attractive ones like in-  flatables and fishing tackle.  Stop by and find out about the  club's programmes.

Put them in the cold frame  and increase the ventilation  gradually.  Make sure the ground around  newly planted trees and shrubs  is well soaked and never dries  out completely.  Sow runner beans, main crop  carrots, spinach and beetroot  for winter storage, continue  sowing salad crops. Spray roses  with a systemic fungicide  against black spot and mildew.  Don't wait until you see damage, do it regularly through the  summer while the air is still.  Early morning is best. You  can save soapy water to spray  too, which keeps some pests  away, but not when the sun is  hot.  The larvae of the flies which  attack onion, carrot and cabbage seedlings should be warded  off with calomel dust on the soil  around the plants, or trapped  with baits of carrots and potato  on skewers or sticks. Keep the  rows of carrots heeled up so  that only the tips can be seen, it  also seems to fool the flies.  Pioneer Park will soon be  planted with its summer plants,  we hope you enjoy it.

It is  estimated that one in every 20  persons carries the gene for  cystic fibrosis which affects the  body's exocrine glands, causing  respiratory and digestive problems.  At present, cystic fibrosis is  incurable, but treatment has improved greatly through  research. The Canadian Cystic  Fibrosis Foundation asks for  your help in May to fund further research, support patients  and their families, and to promote awareness of cystic  fibrosis.

From all over North  America; students take courses  at the Sechelt campus of  Capilano College.  After the success of last  year's program, the 1987  courses filled up rapidly with  students registering through  Elderhostel's central office.  There are no spaces open to day  students, but there are spaces  for those local people acting as  hosts.  Because the Sechelt campus  has no residences, students are  billeted with local families.  Families get an allowance to  help cover food costs, and are  invited to take part in a course,  and afternoon and evening ac-  tivites.  Elderhostel students tend to  be active, curious and enthusiastic students. Coming  from other parts of North  America, they are interested in  our Sunshine Coast lifestyle.  They bring a lifetime of experience to share and actively  appreciate being taken into people's homes as part of the  Elderhostel program in our  community.  Last year's hosts found that  meeting and getting to know  Elderhostellers could be fun and  stimulating. The college still  needs hosts for this year, for the  two week long periods, May 31  to June 5, and June 7 to 13.  If you would like to join us  for the Elderhostel experience,  please call the Sechelt campus at  885-9310. General information  on Elderhostel in other areas is  also available at Capilano College.  VACMAN  VACUUMS  eci*1  Dolphin Mini Mall, Sechelt  A    -        ��� �� �� *Sale Ends Saturday, May 16th*  ,*'j$     "V,  -     'St*'.,!*  Machine*  Parts & Supplies For Most Makes  885-3963  by Larry Grafton  It would seem by the adverse  remarks being circulated via the  local press that a couple of individuals who do not even  belong to the branch, are intent  on moving our proposed new  hall from our own property to  Block 7, which is the property  west of the Shop Easy. We are  aware of course, that our  mayor, who incidentally is a  member, would also like to see  us re-locate.  This controversy, which is  not instigated by our building  committee, has caused considerable concern among our  members, and even a question  of whether secret negotiations  are in progress. To our  members please be advised, this  is not so.  Our branch has struggled for  over six years on this project  and our building committee has  attended and engineered  countless meetings on behalf of  our fellow members. Prior to  the purchase of our property,  we went through two or even  three proposals which entailed  various degrees of outside participation and joint tenancy.  The public at large should be  advised that our branch never,  at any time, intended to build a  community hall. Our reason for  this has always been that we  must, at our own stage of life,  control our own destiny because  nobody else will do it for us.  It is also interesting to note  on page 10 of the Press of May  5,1987, with regard to this matter, under the heading "Sechelt  Council Approves Cornmittee  Plan", the following quotation,  "Council has already approached the Sechelt Seniors group  about locating its new activity  centre in Block 7."  At our May executive  meeting on Tuesday morning,  May 5, to date, there was no  written proposal from Sechelt  Council. This type of inaccurate  reporting is a concern to our  members, and only tends to  confirm instead of clarify the  issue.  The branch has committed  itself to raising considerable  funds for architectural,  engineering, and consulting fees  which apply to the present property. Revised planning would  entail additional architectural  costs. In addition to this, ac  quisition of the property has not  been definitely accomplished,  which fact would create a delay  in start of our construction.  In conclusion, our members  should be advised that there are  absolutely no negotiations in  progress at the present time  regardless of press reports, with  regard to a switch, and should  such negotiations take place the  membership will be informed in  advance at both our executive  and general meetings.  Should such a thing occur  there will be an extra ordinary  meeting of all members with  two weeks prior notification of  such meeting to ratify or reject  such a move.

Cowrie St., Sechelt  OPEN SUNDAYS  885-2818  Mall opening marks  business buoyancy  Another sign of the improving economic health of the Sunshine Coast was evidenced last  Saturday with the official opening of Dolphin Mini-Mall, at  the corner of Wharf Road and  Dolphin Street in Sechelt.  Housing seven new businesses, none of them a duplication  of any other business in Sechelt  except Pronto's II Restaurant,  the mini-mall is a transformation of the former Sunshine GM  building, owned by Sechelt  Mayor Bud Koch. But the  building's history goes back  much farther.  When long-time Sechelt resident Vic Walters arrived on the  Sunshine Coast in 1949, the site  of Dolphin Mini-Mall was a  huge picnic ground and baseball  diamond owned by Union  Steamships. Boatloads of city  dwellers would come to Sechelt  for office picnics and parties,  and Walters remembers roofed  picnic tables and benches 300  feet long on the site.  Union Steamships owned  almost all of the property from  Porpoise Bay to Trail Bay, and  around 1957 they began to sell it  off. Jackson Brothers Logging  soon bought the piece where the  current mini-mall is, and built  the original building as Jackson  Brothers Machine Shop.  In time the building became  Charlie McDermid's Machine  Shop, and subsequently it was  purchased by Butch and Tommy Ono, Sammy McKenzie and  Orvill Moscrip, who expanded  and set up Standard Motors in .  the front of the building, with  Bob Forrester running his  machine shop in the back.  Bud Koch bought the building from Standard Motors in  1977 and established Sunshine  Motors.  Koch estimates the costs of  renovating, equipping and landscaping the new mini-mall at a  quarter of a million dollars,  "and we paid for everything except for a $750 municipal contribution to cover the cost of  half the sidewalk," he told the  Coast News.  He is very proud that  everything was bought locally  and done by local labour, except for the doors and the unique bubble windows in Pronto's  II which were once over the entry ways into Pier 6 at Expo,  and which Koch purchased  from Len Van Egmond.  The other shops in the mini-  mall include Leprachon Dry  Cleaners, The Dream Shop,  Heidi's Janitorial Service,  Teepee Trading, Vacman  Vacuums and the Diving  .Locker.  With the ribbon barely cut to  open the mini-mall, Koch is  already thinking of expansion.  "We have a waiting list for  space," he said. "We're looking  at putting in six more stores  because we have the tenants for  them."

Higgs of Gibsons, B.C. is  pleased to announce the following concerning Mariners' Rest, the only official sea  burial marker in the waters of B.C. that is  sanctioned by government.  As of December, 1986, Mariners' Rest has  come under the Custodianship and Administration of The Canadian Merchant Service Guild, (CMSG).  Captain Higgs, who for the last 15 years  has been the co-ordinator between the provincial government and all concerned,  wishes to inform mariners and their relatives  in the community and across Canada that  arrangements for the holding of services and  the scattering of ashes of those who wish to  be committed to the sea may now be made  by writing to The Secretary, CMSG, 230  West Broadway, Vancouver, BC, V5Y 1P7,  or by telephone at 872-7811. Transportation  and other information will also be available  there.  Mariners' Rest is located four miles north  of Gibsons near Gambier Island in Thorn-  borough Channel, Howe Sound. Previous  to 1979, the waters adjacent to the islet had  been historically and unofficially utilized for  the 'committal of ashes' of mariners and  their relatives so development into the permanent marker in perpetuity that it is today  was most appropriate.  A permanent record of each memorial  service with particulars will be kept at the  offices of The CMSG with copies of the  document sent to The Company of Master  Mariners, The Mission to Seamen, and The  Town Clerk, Town Hall, Gibsons, B.C.  It is expressly requested that no landing  be made on the islet as it is a dedicated site.  Likewise, the natural beauty of the islet must  be maintained.  Captain. Wm. Higgs suggests that this  once only announcement should be clipped  out by all who wish or may have relatives  wishing to avail themselves of the services  supplied by the Canadian Merchant Guild  and ready reference to their address and  telephone number therein.

Her  workmates can just be seen at the bottom of the hill.  Vandalism problem  said Coast-wide  : Vandalism is becoming an increasing problem on the Sunshine Coast. At last week's Gibsons Council meeting aldermen  received a letter from property  owners in the Georgia Beach  area, accompanied by a presentation by Mr. Crego protesting  that the beach is "being overrun  by thugs and hooligans."  Crego told council that he has  lived in that area for 10 years  and considers it "one of the  most desirable places in Gibsons." Recently, however, his  sleep has been continuously  disturbed by drunken parties.  Residents in the area, he said,  are constantly confronted with  "defecation, urination and fornication in public and live in  fear of being assaulted or torched in reprisal for reporting to  police."  Vandals have totally  destroyed the changehouse that  was built at the beach and  Crego demanded that council  take action to stop the abuse of  both the beach facilities and the  local residents. He asked council to close the park from 11 pm  until 8 am each day and suggested that local residents need  not be denied access during  those hours if passes were issued  to them on request.  Speed bumps at both ends of  the road, he said, would act as a  deterent to drag racers and  more regular patrolling by  police would discourage the  vandals and partiers.  Crego also requested that  council impose a stiff penalty  for violation of the hour restrictions and post a notice warning  people of the high fines.  "If action is not taken immediately we intend to initiate  legal action against the Town of  Gibsons," he warned.  Mayor Diane Strom assured  Crego that she would be going  over his concerns and suggestions with Sergeant Bessant of  the Gibsons RCMP.  Sechelt residents are also having their problems with vandalism. People living at  Greenecourt, the seniors' housing complex, have had almost  weekly visits; from vandals for  over a month. Greenecourt  manager Ken McMillan told the  Coast News that flower gardens  had been torn up several times,  car aerials and windshield  wipers broken, and a vase was  stolen through an open window.  Residents have frequently been *  frightened by people knocking  on their doors and then disappearing.  So far, there has been little  that the RCMP can do. By the  time they arrive, the vandals are  gone and the harm has been  done.  Alderman Mike Shanks said  that the Lions Club, which administrates Greenecourt will be  taking action to put a stop to  the malicious mischief. Members of the club will be patrolling the area on a regular basis.  Wharf has manager  The question of the management of Gibsons Wharf has  been resolved with the appointment of long-time Sunshine  Coast resident Larry Reardon  to serve as wharfinger for the  Department of Transport on the  wharf and as harbour manager  for the Department of Fisheries  and Oceans, Small Crafts Harbour Branch on the floats. The  position is co-ordinated under  the Canadian Coast Guard.  A 25 year resident of the  Redrooffs Road area, Reardon  sold real estate for 17 years then  was manager of Porpoise Bay  Wharf for six years, employed  by Small Crafts Harbour  Branch, until the wharf was  taken over by the district municipality. He also served two  years as wharfinger in Richmond and Steveston and last  summer was employed in False  Creek.  On his new duties, Reardon  told the Coast News last week:  "I'd like things to run as  smoothly as they did in Richmond and Steveston.  Everybody I've met has been  just fine so far."  The new wharfinger points  out that the Fire Marshall has  issued instructions that there  will be no parking on the wharf  after May 19.  "Of course, there will be  loading and unloading of  vehicles, that's what the wharf  is here for," says Reardon,  "but the Fire Marshall has put  it off limits to parking after  May 19.  With a professional hockey  background, Reardon has  coached kids and played in  Oldtimers games. He is proudest of his service as the chairman of the Area B Settlement  Plan Committee, he says.  Services Board  needs members  New members are sought for the Sunshine Coast Community Services Society Board, Nominating Committee  'Chairman, Hilary Estergaard, said Thursday.  "We are looking for people who have about 10 hours a  month to give to the board," Hilary said.  The society is the umbrella organization for services such as  the Transition House, Parent-Tot Drop-In, the Mini-bus,  Telephone Tree, and the Food Bank, to name but a few.

Once upon a time, of course, she lived in Wales, and when she grew up  she became a Home Economics teacher.

"It would be so nice to have someplace local theatre groups could call  home," she says.  When she's not at home she's often reading to pre-schoolers at Gibsons  Library's Storytime, and has just recently been involved with Cedar Grove  Elementary's production of "Child Power".

Rhythms of Life
Impulsive lovers
starry-eyed
by Penny Fuller
Wistful breezes dance across
\i moonlight frosted waves caress-
K ing the shore as gentle strains of
facile love songs play in the
background. Yes folks, there is
f/.a. nauseating overabundance of
| Harlequin-type romance in the
^•air these days. You may think
; its just part of your regular
> summer romance atmosphere,
7 but a recent meeting between
Venus (planet of guess what)
! and Jupiter (planet of abundance) is causing a tug at the
'. most stony heart strings.
Several of you may believe
that you met your soul-mate last
week and cynic I may be, but I
won't tell you it's not so.
Jupiter is also considered extremely lucky. But somebody
has to keep a baby-toehold on
reality and the reality is that this
auspicious meeting of Venus
and Jupiter took place in Aries,
a sign known for it's impulsiveness.
So enjoy that wonderful feel-
; ing, but don't make any lifelong
; commitments until the golden
haze fades a bit. A cruise to the
south seas can be wonderful,
but that doesn't mean that it's
the right place for you to live.
Even the most settled of the
rest of the population may have
felt a restless kind of longing
seeping into their awareness.
Why can't we all live in
"Dallas" and wake up to
discover that all those miserable
episodes in the last year were
just part of one long nightmare?
What can I say? I hear that
the episodes that followed the
waking up scene weren't all that
hot.
Let yourself feel that longing,
don't freeze it out or block it
off. Wrapped up in that longing
may be forgotten dreams and in
the words of an Arlo Guthrie
tune, "We're made of dreams
and bones." Dreams have led to
great things in history and some
of yours may be worth remembering. It's never too late to
pursue those visions, you may
just have to modify them a bit.
Venus is also the planet of
creative expression and the
boost that Jupiter gave it may
have inspired some great ideas
for books or paintings, or
whatever. Follow-up on those.
Don't let that inspirational jolt
get lost in the filing cabinet.
This transit is brief, by the time
you read this it is already passing away.

f\sVwti%
Vfift U'l
by Peter Trower
My own inerest in the woods
was triggered in the early 40's,
both by Bus' early comic strip
and the service type logging
poetry of Robert E. Swanson. It
was through Swanson's poems
that I first made the acquaintance of Rough House Pete,
Eight Day Wilson and all the
other legendary characters of
those hell-for-leather times. By
the time I hit my first camp in
1949, most of these unregener-
ate timber tramps had either
made the Skidroad their permanent address or forged on to the
camps of the Holy Ghost (in
Swanson's picturesque parlance).
There were still plenty of
hard-boiled hombres around
however and I was destined to
work with many of them during
22 years of camp drifting.
My logging career encompassed another transitional
period of great change in the
woods. The steampots were
almost a thing of the past although I did work one of the
last of them at Gordon Gibson's
old Tahsis camp. The cross-cut
saws (or misery whips) of the
hand fallers were rapidly giving
way to cumbersome, two-man
chainsaws. They were still using
wooden spar-trees and complicated skyline systems but by
the mid 60's these were being
replaced by compact steel-spar
units and grapple-loaders for
stacking the logs on the trucks.
(Trucks were rapidly replacing
the locomotives as a means of
hauling timber to the spill.)
These technological changes
were in full spate by the time I
finally worked my last logging
camp in 1971. Automation was
causing the elimination of. many
traditional woods jobs. Whistle-
punks or signalmen, who had
once relayed the yarding crew's
instructions to the engineer, had
long since fallen prey to electronic belt-whistles. Grapple
loaders had eliminated the need
for loading crews, phasing out
at least four jobs. Grapple
yarders that could be operated
by a single man, had put entire
rigging crews out of work. The
development of lightweight
powersaws had broken up the
old time falling teams. The face
of the logging industry was
drastically altering.
The changes are by no means
over. A few years back, I had
the opportunity to witness a
whole new high-tech wrinkle in
log harvesting.
The small helicopter hovers
over the distant mountain ridge
like a hummingbird. From its
belly, a barely visible steel
mainline drops smoothly
groundward. A waiting rigging
crew slips the loop ends of preset chokers over the dangling
hook. Scooting into the clear,
they give the go-ahead signal.
High above them, the winch
purrs into motion again, pulling
the logs free of the ground.
Abruptly, the chopper starts
its descent. It literally falls down
the side of the mountain, dropping so rapidly that the logs trail
out behind it like the tails of a
kite. In little more than a
minute, it snaps to a midair halt
over the boomstick-enclosed
waters of the sorting pond. The
electric hook releases and the
logs plummet into the Sound,
kicking up a white explosion of
spray. It has barely subsided
before the chopper, stripped of
even the back to its cabin for
maximum lift capacity, is whirring up the mountain again for
another load.
Barring breakdowns, it will
keep up the process all day, putting six times more wood in the
water than would be possible by
older methods.
Helicopter logging has provided one of the few bright
spots in a badly depressed industry over the past few years.
A few far-seeing men postulated
such a method as far back as the
early 30's when the first crude
airfoil craft were being
developed. But it took decades
for technology to catch up with
the dream.
Old time loggers, sweating
their butts off as they rigged up
spartrees and complex cable
systems, used to joke wistfully
of a mythical 'sky hook' that
would eliminate such arduous
labour. (A device by this name
was actually employed for some
years but it involved a donkey
engine that rode a double skyline and the rigging-up problems beggared belief.) The imaginary sky hook was lumped in
their legends along with the
feats of Paul Bunyan. Now that
pleasant myth has become reality. Jerry Rogers wouldn't
believe his eyes.
Jerry Rogers would be amazed by a good many things in the
contemporary woods for the
logging camps of B.C. have
been upgraded a bit since his
(and even my own) day. Recently, I had occasion to observe
this first hand in Weldwood's
Clowholm Falls operation at the
head of postcard-pretty Salmon
Inlet.
The camp, employing about
60 men, hunkers in the valley
entrance between steep, scarred
mountains. It is neatly, laid out
on a cleared area, bordered by
second growth conifers. The
buildings, mostly trailers, glint
in tidy aluminum, ranks. The
majority of them are bunk-
houses, ultra modern units with
one man to a room and all the
basic amenities. The squeaky
clean cookhouse dispenses excellent stick-to-your-ribs fare,
cafeteria style - no salt pork or
green bacon here. There is a
recreation hall with pool tables,
gym equipment, television and a
stereo sound system, not a bad
place to unwind in after a shift
in the woods. The men work 10
day tours, then head to the city
for a little R and R. Wages
average $15.50 per hour, quite a
difference from the $1 per day
the early axemen were paid.
Logging is still no picnic,
there are the job hazards and
the weather to contend with,
but it has certainly cleaned up
its act quite noticeably over the
years.
At the Arts Centre
There will be a change of
pace at the Arts Centre in
Sechelt starting on May 13 with
the opening of the exhibition
Contemporary Sculpture.
It's been a long time since
there has been a show devoted
exclusively to sculpture at the
Arts Centre. This is a medium
that most of us are less familiar
with.
Consisting mostly of small
pieces, this show will emphasize
the whimsical with carved and
cast pieces as well as welded
steel, papier mache and
assemblage. You're in for some
pleasing surprises.
There will be a reception on
Saturday, May 16 from 2 to 4
pm with artists in attendance
who can answer any questions
you may have. The exhibition
continues until June 7.

Bonnie Prince Charlie's tragedy  nu^m4*m &ife  gSSUMMER HOURS"  Starting Friday, May 15  7 am to 7 pm  7 DAYS A WEEK  FEATURING   ^^ ^^  ^Available!        &   *D(*UWl SfUtfaU  1500 Gower Pt.Rd.,  Gibsons Landing  886-2261  Wine & Beer  Licensed  by Montague Royal  When the name Bonnie  Prince Charlie is mentioned, it  conjures up images of a brash,  gallant young man invading  England against hopeless odds;  going down to bloody defeat at  Culloden and being hunted like  a fox across the moors and  among the Scottish islands. Certainly all these events happened  but they tell only a small part of  the Young Pretender's story.  The rest of Charles' life had its  moments too, many of them,  alas, a good deal less than  heroic. Novelist Margaret  Forster (Georgy Girl), turns  historian here and details the  life and times of the no-so-  bonnie prince in The Rash  Adventurer (Seeker &  Warburg).  The man who was to engineer  one of history's goriest fiascos  was born in 1720 to the exiled  Stuart "king", James III and  his wife, Clementina. Charles  and his younger brother, grew  up in Rome, steeped in the  Jacobite tradition and the  legend of their stolen heritage.  James III (generally known as  'Chevalier St. George' in  deference to his lack of any real  kingly status) had staged his  own attempt to regain the  crown in 1715 and gone down in  defeat, but he still nursed  dreams of eventual success.  Charles was to be the instrument of these dreams and was  trained towards this end from  his earliest years.  In 1745, after several months  of preparation in France, the  Young Pretender set out for  Scotland with two ships and a  small company of fellow  Jacobites. He was relying on the  eventual support of the French  King's Army, after he had  rallied the Clans. The Clans  however, were sharply divided  in their feelings about the  Jacobite Cause. Many of them  refused to have any part of the  insurrection. Charles was able  to raise only 5,000 men. Certain  he would be able to swell the  ranks of his rag-tag army with  English Jacobites, Charles,  after a victorious encounter  with British troops at Preston-  pans, decided to march south.  The expected influx of  English supporters was not forthcoming however, By the time  the rebels reached Derby, it  became obvious that they were  bucking impossible odds. A  vastly-superior British force, led  by the Duke of Cumberland,  barred the way to London. It  would be suicide to engage  them. Reluctantly, Charles  Stuart and his Jacobites were  forced to retreat the way they  had come.  The Duke of Cumberland's  army set out in immediate pursuit. Prince Charlie and his exhausted men were cornered at  Culloden and brutally massacred. This ignominious defeat  was followed by savage  reprisals. Charles Stuart managed to escape and, after five  GIBSONS  LEGION  H��^g| Branch #109  Fri., May 15  Sat., May 16  Times  Two  months as a fugitive, eluded the  redcoats and caught a ship back  to France.  Although Charles Stuart was  to live more than 40 years after  his famous and ill-fated attempt  to regain the crown, it was  mostly downhill from this  point. He began a sort of pillar-  to-post existence that took him  back and forth across Europe, a  failed hero whose historic moment had come and gone - a  man without a country, living  on borrowed money and broken  dreams.  Prior to his defeat at  Culloden, the Young Pretender  had followed a self-imposed  vow of celibacy. He now embarked on several rocky  romances, including a long  liason with Clemintina Walkin-  shaw by whom he had an illegitimate daughter, Charlotte.  Women seemed to bring out the  worst in Charles Stuart and he  treated them abominably,  especially the unfortunate  Clemintina who was eventually  compelled to leave him after  years of brutal treatment. Much  of Charles' boorish behaviour  was occasioned by drink, for  which he had developed an inordinate fondness.  Following the death of his  father in 1766, Charles returned  to Rome. Here, in 1772, he  married an obscure princess,  Louise of Stolberg, a woman 32  years his junior. The union was  not a success. Charles treated  his young bride little better than  he had Clemintina and she  eventually left him for a lover of  her own age.  Charles Stuart continued to  drink his way into oblivion.  Ironically, in his final years, he  was nursed by his illegitimate  daughter, Charlotte, whom he  had hitherto ignored. Charles  died in 1778, on the eve of the  French Revolution, a broken  ruin of a man - a prince who  never was.

In the first place there is the location: directly across from the windows of  the dining room, across a cove which is as breathtakingly beautiful as any  comer of this much blessed Coast, are South and North Thormanby  Islands; the Lodge itslef is classily rustic, its building blending in sturdy  unobtrusiveness into the beauty of its surroundings; then there is the service,  old friend Jane McOuat was our waitress and she was her usual cheerful,  helpful, and delightful self, and new friend Linda, the hostess, certainly  made us feel welcome and at home; and, finally above all, there is the food,  courtesy of Chef Geoff Chapman lately head chef, we are told, at La  Brochette and O'Doul's restaurants in Vancouver. Their loss is the Sunshine Coast's gain.  My companion and I arrived for a recent visit to the Lodge at the reserved hour of eight, just in time to begin our experience by sunset. We completed it by candlelight, unobtrusively and appropriately lighted by Linda,  some three hours later. How time flies in the transports of delight.  We dallied shamelessly in such a setting over our choices. Lord Jim's offers as intriguing a selection of old favourites and untried surprises in its  soups and appetizers as one could wish. I sipped a domestic beer while we  discussed our choices, my more adventurous companion enjoyed a three-  olive martini which she pronounced just right.  She chose the Chicken Brochette for her appetizer, it was comprised of  skewered chicken with mushrooms and sweet bell peppers. The chicken, she  announced without qualification, was the most tasty and tender that she  had eaten. I selected the Seafood Bisque, an enduring delight and never better. It came with small-neck and kiwi clams and baby shrimp and the broth  was of a richness and a tang which was simply wonderful.  Again the agony of choice over the main course while my companion sipped the house white wine, Tokai, and found it exactly to her liking.  The main courses are a compact but highly intriguing selection of fish,  fowl and meat dishes, all of them crying out to be sampled. I was ready with  my decision, Broiled Lamb Filet on a light Dijon mustard sauce, long  before my companion settled on the Poached Salmon topped with baby  shrimp on a base of cream sauce, but it was fun watching her dither.  The main courses came with scalloped potatoes and vegetables ticked  with herbs often in delicate and delightful surprise. Lightly curried zucchini,  for example, lept instantly to the top of the list of favourite ways of enjoying this old friend.  For dessert, my companion chose the Creme de Menthe Parfait, which  was perfect, and I unbuckled my belt and manfully took on the generous  helping of Meringue Glace, meringue and ice cream swimming in chocolate  sauce. It was, again, a total delight.  For that special occasion, or for those times when you feel that you and  those you love deserve a little special pampering, consider a visit to Lord  Jim's Lodge. We guarantee you will find it a delightful experience.  Bonniebrook Lodge- Enjoy relaxed  and intimate dining in this historic seaside  lodge.

Government's current campaign of misinformation about Bills 19 and 20 in  which they continually refer to  'democracy in the workplace' is  nothing more than false and  deceptive propaganda similar in  nature to propaganda put out  by past right-wing dictatorships  that history has recorded, or  that many present tin-pot dictatorships would be proud of.  Bills 19 and 20 have nothing  to do with democracy in the  workplace.  They have every  thing to do with divide and conquer tactics and plain and simple union-busting designed to  turn B.C. into a so-called 'right  to work* province. These bills  were most likely drawn up by  the very best of anti-union  management consultants and  labour lawyers.  The intent of these bills is to  take away virtually every important bargaining right that working men and women have  fought long, hard battles to obtain over the last 50 years. If this  government is successful in its  attack on unionized peoples'  rights, all working people will  suffer in many ways, including  a lower standard of living,  which will in tum adversely affect all small businessmen. This  confrontational legislation will  also greatly increase labour turmoil in this province which can  only lead to less investment and  development by business in this  province. It is, therefore, essential that all people, not just the  unionized sector oppose the implementation of Bills 19 and 20  in every possible way.  Volunteers get support  Editor:  During the recent National  Volunteer Week in Canada,  another successful Volunteer  ;���' Recognition Tea was enjoyed by  ; over 140 Sunshine Coast volunteers from 41 agencies and  groups to celebrate and thank  them for their unselfish  endeavours in helping their  neighbours.  There were 35 deserving entrants to receive special recognition   for  their  volunteer  activities.  But many thanks must also  7 be extended to the Coast News,  ' Mountain FM radio, and Coast  '. Cable Vision Limited for their  assistance and coverage of the  ; event, and to Southcoast Ford  ; and the Village of Sechelt for  the advertisements.  The Legion, Branch 140, who  : donated   the   hall,   and   the  - Ladies'   Auxiliary, who kindly  made all the sandwiches. Once  again they showed how supportive they are of the community.  We would also like each of  the read-o-graph people; Shell  (Gibsons), Petrocan, Gibsons  Building Supplies, the Peninsula  Hotel and Sechelt Elementary  School, to receive recognition  for their assistance in promoting  the event.  The door prizes too, from  Bonniebrook   Lodge   Resort,  Supershape and the Massage  Therapy   Center,   plus   the  beautiful mugs of flowers and  the corsage from Ann-Lynn and  the Unicorn, and film developing from Tri Photo, helped to  make the tea the success it was!

And yet, when the teachers  take one day to study the new  legislation and to protest the  manner in which it is being imposed on them, all I hear  around town are protests by  parents who are inconvenienced.  We have seen teachers in this  province stand up for quality  education, thereby incurring the  wrath of the Social Credit  government. Become informed  about Bill 20. Support common  sense, non-confrontational  policies that say education is important for the whole community, and next time elect a government that will play fair.  W.R. Henderson  Editor:  The successful Arts Council  Plant Sale of April 26 was an  all-out volunteer effort.  We wish to pay tribute to the  32 people who helped organize  this annual fund-raising event.  Thanks also to plant donors  and, in particular, to Robert  Jack, Linda Fox, Jeff Chilton  and Casey's Country Gardens  for their special donations.

The Sunshine Coast  Teachers Association,  Gibsons, B.C.  To the Teachers of  School District 46  The Sunshine Coast Labour  Council voted unanimously to  show support for your study  session of April 28. Participation in this vanguard action,  part of the escalating battle  against Bills 19 and 20, must  have been a difficult personal  decision for many of your  members. One does not take a  principled stand of civil disobedience lightly.  Rest assured, however, that  overwhelming grassroots support is rapidly building to fight,  by whatever means necessary,  for the withdrawal of these  onerous and unmandated pieces  of legislation.  Recently announced plans of  the B.C. Federation of Labour  are for a work-to-rule campaign  and an overtime ban. More  serious job action will take place  if significant changes are not  forthcoming.  Keep   up   the   fight   and  remember, you are not alone.

Here are a  few of the accomplishments of  this small group since their  founding in 1955.  Thanks to many fund raising  activities throughout the years  the Halfmoon Bay branch of  St. Mary's Hospital has furnished a room in the Extended Care  unit, and with the help of their  memorial funds, obtained a  piano for Extended Care, an oil  painting, coloured TV set, a toy  box for Pediatrics, and a bird  bath for the garden.  Some members have been  working for the auxiliary for  more than 25 years while others  have only recently become involved.  You too, are welcome to  come along and help by joining  the auxiliary.  Having babies  Disease attacks child bearers  by Deborah Pageau  Systemic Candidiasis is a  remarkable and fairly new  discovery in the field of  medicine. While any person or  animal can develop it, females  in the child bearing years are the  most susceptible.  It was first described in a  paper by an American allergist,  Doctor Orion Truss, in 1978.  Because it is such a new  discovery, there are still a lot of  unknowns. There are approximately 50 main-stream doctors  in Canada who treat it,  although most naturopaths  have been doing so for years.  Candidiasis can develop  when the immune system is suppressed by stress, significant  hormonal changes or use of antibiotics or steroids, in combination with a diet high in refined  carbohydrates and sugars.  Under these conditions, the  yeast "Candida" has an opportunity to increase unchecked.,  The toxins it produces attack  the immune system.  Doctor Truss found that controlling over-proliferation of  yeasts relieved a multitude of  conditions: from acne to multiple sclerosis, including allergies,  arthritis, chronic ear infections,  sinus congestion, bronchial and  lung problems.  Doctor Warren Bell of  Salmon Arm, B.C., a popular  maternity care-giver, suggested  to me that there may be a direct  link between overly active Can-  APPLIANCES  LAROE  dida during pregnancy and the  common nausea, vomiting and  bowel disorders suffered at that  time. Treatment of Candidiasis  also offers relief from postpartum depression, PMS (Premenstrual Syndrom), fatigue,  menstrual irregularities and fertility problems.  Typical problems associated  with yeast over-growth are sleep  disturbances, irritability, cravings for sweet or refined carbohydrate foods, unpredictable  mood swings, excessive weight  loss or gain, feeling too cold or  too hot, difficulty handling  stress, skin irritations of all  kinds, head and body aches,  frequent illness; scalp, skin and  genital itchiness, hypo or  hyperglycemia...and more.  Other illnesses that may also  respond to treatment of Can-  didaisis are Crohns, schizophrenia and low grade anemia.  New borns are also very  susceptible and it may be what  causes classic colic . Children  who escape that, are at risk  when given antibiotics. Their  typical range of Candidiasis  symptoms are fussy or hyperactive behaviour; stomach, urinary and bowel disorders;  allergies; chronic ear, nose,  throat and/or chest problems,  learning impairments. Men tend  to have fewer Candidiasis opportunities but are nevertheless  also susceptible under the appropriate conditons.  Conservative estimates suggest that somewhere between 30  and 50 per cent of the population are suffering distress  because of undiagnosed Candidiasis, with an even larger  percentage having some symptoms from time to time.  Treatment of Candidiasis  usually consists of a strict diet  CHECK  \m  out the THRIFT STORE  above Ken's Lucky Dollar  Proceeds in aid of the Food Bank  THRIFTY'S  Tues. - Sat., 10-4        886-2488       above Ken's Lucky Dollar  The Sunshine Coast Integrated Life Society presents Evans Hermon speaking on  Educational Kinesiology at Roberts Creek Elementary Community Use Room, 7:30  ' pm, Tuesday, May 12. $2 admission.

Vitamin, mineral and lac-  tobacilus supplements are  usually suggested to help support the overly-taxed immune  system.  Results from this approach to  health care have been remarkable encouraging. Of the  thousands of people who have  been through' this so far, many  have achieved astonishing and  dramatic recoveries, for other  the progress may be slower. In  any case, the treatment is con  sidered a "benign" one, even by  the most conservative of the  medical main-stream; that is to  say, "it can't hurt and it might  help".  If you would like further information on Candidiasis, here  are some good books, The  Yeast Connection by William  Crook, MD, is designed to be  readable by those with no  medical background, and The  Yeast Syndrom by Doctor J.  Trowbridge, et. al., is more  clinical. Then talk to your doctor. It may be the answer to  problems that you thought you  were going to have to get used  to living with.  Regional library  not a viability  An interim report on the Sunshine Coast Library Study being  done by Kathryn Feeney was  presented to the Sunshine Coast  Regional District (SCRD) last  Thursday, and it appears that a  full-fledged regional libraryTis  not a viable option at this time.  Ms Feeny spent the mbnths  of March and April collecting  data from the community, library boards and personnel,  and related government officials  in an attempt to evaluate and  make recommendations on the  library service on the Sunshine  Coast. While cautioning that all  the data was not yet in and this  was a preliminary report only,  Feeney pointed out that the  relatively small tax base and the  desire of several communities to  maintian local autonomy made  a regional library with an expensive administrative structure  unlikely at this point.  However, she maintained  that inter-library co-operation  could be achieved fairly easily  with some strong direction,  more full-time staff and more  funding. In this preliminary  proposal, she recommends that  local boards continue to have  control over their own libraries  and reading centres, and continue to solicit grants from local  municipal governments, and  that the SCRD provide enough  money to facilitate co-operative  efforts.  The board will wait for the  final report before making any  comments.  Films feature  the handicapped  If you are the parent or care  giver of a mentally or physically  handicapped person your input  is needed by the Sunshine  Association for the Handicapped regarding living, learning,  recreational and work skill requirements on the Sunshine  Coast.  On Thursday, May 14 at 7:30  pm you are invited to the  screening of two documentary  half hour films in room 112 at  Chatelech Secondary School in  Sechelt.  The films, People Who Need  People and Towards Independence, show different  aspects of life in three different  group living arrangements and  feature the handicapped people  themselves speaking of their  hopes and ambitions for the  future. A discussion will follow.  For more information call  885-5473 or 885-4642.

The informal information  session was a response to questions Skelly had received from  constituents about the recent  permanent closures of beaches  in Storm Bay and the southern  tip of Porpoise Bay for bivalve  shellfish harvesting.  Paul Murphy from the  Sechelt Inlet Protection Society  was there as well as several individuals who wanted an explanation of the closures.  Fisheries officer Sue Hahn  explained the two kinds of  beach closures involved. The  closure for paralytic shellfish  poisoning covers butter clams,  scallops and mussels and extends all the way up the Inlet to  Egmont. It was imposed by the  Department of Fisheries after  algae blooms contaminated  shellfish and is a temporary  closure.  When questioned about the  reasons for the red tide which  hit unusually late last year,  Hahn speculated that last year's  dry summer followed by rains in  the fall swept down an excess of  bacteria.  The more isolated permanent  closures of Storm Bay and Porpoise Bay south of Poise Island  were recommended by the EPS  after water samples showed a  high level of fecal contamination. Bruce Kay, senior  microbiologist from Marine  Programs of the EPS, told the  meeting that the elevated col-  iform count was mostly attributed to animals, probably  bears.  The acceptable count for a  shellfish harvesting area he told  the meeting, is 14 parts per 100  millilitres of water, much lower  than that which is deemed safe  for swimming which is 200 parts  per 100 millilitres. The reason  for the difference is that  shellfish are sometimes eaten  raw, and therefore must be  almost free of any contaminating bacteria.  When questioned by the  Coast News reporter about  other testing, Kay acknowledged that no testing was being  done in this area for antibiotic  levels or TBT contamination.  He did, however, say that the  Department of Agriculture had  banned the use of TBT, an anti-  fouling paint used on fishfarm  nets, earlier this year.  Testing for antibiotic contamination is being carried on in  Nanoose Bay, he said, but  budget and personnel constraints left his agency unable to  do the testing in the Sechelt Inlet.  Several individuals asked  questions about the impact of  finfish farming in the Inlet. Sue  Hahn told the group that the  Department of Fisheries and  Oceans had concerns about the  ecological impact of aquaculture on the Sechelt Inlet and  had stopped approving  foreshore leases for that use  almost a year ago.  The information appeared to  take Paul Murphy by surprise.  "We can't get any answers from  the province," he said. "Last  year there were 12 approved  fishfarm leases in the Inlet. This  Blackberries'  #1 ENEMY  The  BUSHWHACKER  Steve Cass  885-7421  v.       Please Leave Message  year there are, we think, 33 approved licences. Someone is approving these leases."  Ray Skelly suggested that the  people present keep in touch  and work with the Sechelt Inlet  Protection Society. He explained that the federal government  is limited in its ability to affect  what is happening in the Inlet  because it mainly comes under  provincial jurisdiction, but suggested that organized pressure  on the federal government  could prompt them to help in  more testing and research.  Towns ta  Sechelt Council gave three  readings to their budget by-law  on Wednesday. Of the total  $1,804,301 budget, $470,891  will be raised through taxes  resulting in a mil rate of $2 per  thousand on residential property and $6 per thousand for  businesses.  School board and regional  district tax levies are not  reflected in the budget. Finance  Committee Chairman Graham  Craig explained that these  amounts were not final yet but  when they are settled they will  not affect the municipal  district's budget.  A new item in the Sechelt  budget is several reserve funds  which will be set up for arena  equipment, future public works  maintenance and operation,  public works equipment, and  the building of a leisure centre.  A list of community groups  which will be receiving grants  was also included: Home Support Services, $1000; Community Services Society, $1000; Outdoors  Unlittered,   $100;   Arts  Council, $500; Man in Motion,  3500; Chamber of Commerce,  $8000; Writers' Forge, $1000;  and miscellaneous, $1900.  The purchase of the  Rockwood Lodge from ��� the  Chamber of Commerce for  $69,500 will cost taxpayers  $12,000 this year and the down-  payment on Block 7 in downtown Sechelt is budgeted at  $95,000.  Gibsons Council gave first,  second and third reading to  three by-laws last Tuesday  which w_l see the mil rate for  residential property owners stay  the same as 1986.  Business taxes will be increased to cover costs of improvements which have been requested and to compensate for  the loss of the town's industrial  tax base of approximately six  per cent when the provincial  government eliminated this  category.  Residential properties will be  hit harder this year by the  school board and regional;  district tax levies. The 51 per  cent increase in the school;  board budget and the 66 per  cent increase in the regional;  district levy will be passed on to-  all property owners.
