 To protest only  SCRD backs off  on minibus  True to the spirit of Sechelt Celebration Day! See page 6 for more photos.  For and against  School board hears tax views  from school district taxpayers  ���Penny Fuller photo  "I feel I am in a hostile environment," stated Mr. VHD  Vaughan to the Sunshine Coast  Board of Schbdl^Trustees at  their regular meeting last Tuesday evening. He made this statement after several delegations  spoke in support of the recent  controversial School Board  Budget. "The delegations here  are stacked," he said.  Mr. Vaughan continued,  "You people in this room have  the power to tax me directly.  This has to be wrong if you  have control of 65 per cent of  my property taxes which have  gone up 52 per cent. Did you  realize the total impact?"  7 "We are responsible for an  11 per cent increase," stated  trustee Judy Wilson.  "Have you considered zero  base budgeting as we do in industry?" asked Mr. Vaughan.  7 "No," replied Board Chairman Maureen Clayton, "We  don't do things that way."  Mr. Vaughan was not alone.  As well as five other letters of  protest a Mr. Knaus and a Mr.  Monte Marler expressed verbal  dissent. Mr.. Marlerasked for a  comparison 'of hoiv Lmaxty  students were graduating this  year compared to 1981. He was  also concerned that the board  has to borrow monies from time  to time that cost interest.  Secretary-Treasurer . Roy  Mills explained the difference  between capital costs and operational costs. He stated that the  philosophy in budgeting for  capital costs, or expenditures  that are long term assets such as  buildings, was that it is not fair  to the taxpayer to pay them off  immediately. An immediate  payout would result in a high  rate of taxation for a short  period of time and the people  who paid for it would be dead  and gone long before its use was  realized. The people following  would get a free ride at the expense of those before. The only  alternative is to stretch out the  payments to match the life of  this  the asset.   Unfortunately  results in interest.  Operating costs, howeveg,:  sometimes earn interest. T_ev!  taxes are collected by the  government in one lump sum  and are distributed to the board  in 12 equal installments. During  the summer and the first few  months of fall, they are ahead  and when in the black the  money earns interest and is used  to reduce local taxes/  The Town of Gibsons also  sent a letter of protest to the  school board. "It may surprise  the board to be informed," the  letter states, "that many who  have telephoned their protests  to our employees, regard it as  an exercise in futility to protest  their tax increase to the school  board. You are not considered  by these people to be open to  their protests or suggestions.  We obviously must be so  regarded, since we are being  bombarded by protests."  Trustee Dave Mewhort at  tempted to put forth the motion  "That over the next four weeks  the board continue to meet in an  4 effort to make significant and  real cuts in the 1987/8$ budget  so that this district can cany a  major surplus into the 1988/89  fiscal period to avoid further  massive tax increases." He  could not find a seconder.  In commenting on this, Mr.  Marler stated, "Because of the  way the board received the motion from Trustee Mewhort, we  must have legislation brought in  from Victoria to have a proper  referendum."  In support of the school  board, the Sunshine Coast  Teachers Association submitted  a brief. In it they charge that  one of the reasons for the property tax increase is the removal  of the non-residential, industrial  tax base. They say not only has  non-residential assessment been  removed to general revenue, but  the school tax on this assessment  has been cut by 8.3 per cent.  Please turn to page 8  The threat to withdraw from  the function which funds the  minibus was withdrawn at the  Sunshine Coast Regional  District (SCRD) meeting held  on Thursday, June 25, with the  directors agreeing only to write  a letter to the appropriate  ministry protesting strongly the  lack of support and 'broken  promises'.  At a meeting of the Transportation Committee of the  SCRD held on June 18, the  SCRD had passed a recommendation which said in part:  "Unless B.C. Transit is able to  fulfil its obligations as implied  in the Transportation Study by  the provision of an additional  vehicle for the Sunshine Coast,  then the regional district will  consider withdrawing from its  operating agreement with B.C.  Transit."  Only Alderman Joyce Kolibas of Sechelt and Director  Gordon   Wilson   of  Area  A  voted against the recommendation at the time.  "This has nothing to do with  diminishing the service," said  Chairman Jim Gumey at the  June 25 meeting.  Gurney had been the mover  of the motion which threatened  to withdraw from the function.  "It has everything to do with  increasing the service after six  years. We must make our displeasure known."  Present at the meeting on  June 25 was newly-elected president of the Community Services  Society, David Short who contented himself with pointing out  to the regional directors that if  they had complaints about the  way minibus drivers were performing their duties the proper  course of action would be to  direct those complaints to  himself since the drivers operate  under an extremely strict set of  guidelines.

Coalition for Alternatives to  Pesticides was in Ottawa for the  tabling of the new Environmental Protection Act (EPA) as part  of a Canada-wide environmental  caucus.  In a telephone conversation  with the Coast News, Rubin  said last week: "We feel that  this is a good first step but it  misses the mark of comprehensive environmental legislation.  "Some improvements have  been incorporated as a result of  public consultation of which we  were a part throughout the  winter and spring but basically  we feel that the act does not give  strong enough federal rule in  implementing national standards for the protection of the  environment.  "Also not included is the environmental bill of rights promised in March by the Honourable Mr. McMillan which  would give the public the right  to a clean and healthy environment and the right to go to  court to protect it.  "There have been some improvements including the  recognition of the need for the  protection of the environment  for its own sake and removal of  some ministerial discretion  which will commit the minister to  act on behalf of the environment.  On Nelson Island  Hatchery to generate  Its own hydro power  The   Honourable  Masse,   Minister   of  Mines and Resources  ;; today opened a  ���purpose  facility  both fresh  power   to  Marcel  Energy,  (EMR),  unique dual-  that supplies  water and electric  the   Tidal   Rush  Salmon Hatchery, operated by  Pacific Aquafoods Ltd. of Vancouver on the Sechelt Peninsula.  Under its Enerdemo program, EMR has funded 15 per  cent of the capital cost of the  electric generating facility at the  hatchery, plus monitoring and  technology transfer costs, for a  total of $30,000.  "The Tidal Rush project  utilizes the potential energy  from the site's fresh water supply to generate electricity," said  Masse.'"The technology could  be applied in many remote industrial developments using  substantial water supplies at  medium to high heads. Capturing the energy of falling water  could provide all or part of such  a project's electricity requirements."  The Tidal Rush hatchery requires up to 200 litres per se  cond of fresh water, mainly for  the tanks in which the smolt  (young salmon) are raised. The  water is taken from Lena Lake,  66 metres above the level of the  site, and brought 700 metres by  250 to 300 millimetre diameter  pipe to the powerhouse, where a  cross-flow turbine-generator  provides electricity for a 20 kW  heating load and five to eight  kW of lighting for buildings at  the hatchery.  The hatchery's capacity could  be increased by adding a second  water supply pipe of equal size,  to improve reliability of the  water supply and increase maximum generating capacity to 75  kW. The turbine-generator has  been sized to provide this additional power.  With increased electricity  supply, the owner would have  the option of using electrical  heating to increase water  temperature in the fish tanks,  enhancing incubation and  growth rates to the smolt stage.  This maximizes salt water survival and adaptability, and promotes economic viability of the  hatchery operation.  Elphinstone graduates step into the adult world with the theme 'The Best is Yet to Come'.  ���Ken Collins photo 2.  Coast News, June 29,1987  Inexcusable  It was with somewhat graceless haste that Gibsons  Council moved to deflect any taxpayers' resentment to the  school board but surely even they did not foresee a communication going from their office to the school board offices which was as churlish and ill-natured as that penned  on their behalf by Secretary-Treasurer Lorraine Goddard.  We invite council members to read the letter if they have  not already done so.  Were Mrs. Goddard writing as an aggrieved taxpayer  the tone of the letter would have been strong, but as a  public servant whose work brings her in daily contact with  the difficulties of budget making and the shifting  economic times, the tone becomes inexcusable.  When the provincial government began shifting school  taxes onto the local property owner some years ago it must  have been with just such a diffusion of taxpayer wrath in  mind. It is not to the credit of Gibsons Council nor its administrator that the tactic should be so successful with  elected officials who should be expected to have some  understanding of what is going on.  Inappropriate  That was a lovely parade on a gorgeous day in Sechelt  last Saturday.  One can only hope however that the idea of trooping  out the heavy machinery from the municipal works yard is  not one which will catch on. It seemed entirely inappropriate.  5 YEARS AGO  The Sechelt Indian Band Act is due to be released to  the public this week. First presented to the Human  Rights Commission on October 29, 1981, the Act is an  attempt to free the Sechelt Band from the strictures of  the Indian Act. The Band is asking for the right to local  government.  Two residents of the Gibsons area have been awarded a $10,000 Explorations grant by the Canada Council,  to document, research and photograph the life and work  of renowned Sunshine Coast sculptor, Dudley Carter.  Four children, whose life experience lies in the conflict of Northern Ireland, are visiting host families on the  Sunshine Coast for the summer, under the auspices of  the Sarah Hughes Society. Their impressions of  Canada? The weather is sunnier, the accents hard to  understand, there are very few brick houses and a lot  more big trucks and flashy cars.  St. Mary's hospital receives its first ultrasound  machine.  The  Sunshine   Coast   chapter  of  the   Registered  Nurses  Association    is    concerned   about   possible  reductions in the quantity and quality of health services, due to the government's restraint program.  10 YEARS AGO  "After four years of hard work I'm very happy. I think it  is a historic occasion," said Gibsons Mayor Lary  Labonte after agreement in principle was reached to tie  Gibsons into the regional water system.  Seventeen year old Chris Milner of Madeira Park will  be the stroke for the Shawinigan Lake rowing team at  Henley Regatta this year.  Ian Hamilton, a blind player, wins his way through to  the finals of a Cedars Inn chess tournament.  20 YEARS AGO  Final respects were paid in the Harvey Funeral  Chapel in Gibsons to Sven Gisvold. Sven Gisvold had a  gallant career fighting against the Nazis in the Second  World War as saboteur and commando. Included  among his escapades was his escape from Nazi imprisonment in a stolen patrol boat pursued by the German navy across the North Sea.  30 YEARS AGO  Davis Bay Elementary School is opened by A. Funnell,  chairman of the school board.  Executives of Pender Harbour Board of Trade complain about rowdiness following a Friday night dance.  Celebrants took to the water after the affair in boats  yelling and cursing and indulging in dangerous twisting  and turning of small craft at high speed. Activities  lasted throughout the night.  40 YEARS AGO  Edward Green, storekeeper at Secret Cove, was  charged with shooting at Vern Backman, fisherman.  The shooting took place after an argument between  Green and his wife in which Backman was not involved.  Green apparently thought his wife had taken refuge on  Backman's boat.  Sechelt Inlet cruises, first organized by James E.  Parker, are proving very popular  The building boom continues apace in Gibsons Landing.

The announcement led to the^  predictable outcry from AreasE v |:  and F, Director Shaske of Area  F vowing a petition to fight incorporation before the results of  any study are in and former  Sunshine Coast Regional  District (SCRD) chairman Dave  Hunter fingering the town planner of Gibsons as the villain of  the piece. Is the SCRD the only  body to be allowed to commission studies?  Meanwhile at an Open House  to discuss waste management at  which members of the public  were just about outnumbered  by SCRD personnel, Chairman  Jim Gurney announces grandly  that this less than grand occasion is the last chance for public  input and the future of the  Coast is determined for the next  20 years.  Meanwhile Larry Jardine of  the SCRD, an administrator  who seems more energized  when making political  statements than he ever does administering, is quickly on record  with the news that Gibsons  residents had a 27 per cent  higher tax increase than  residents of the adjacent rural  areas.  And so the old battle lines are  drawn.  Let's look at some facts that  may colour some of the predictable hard positions already  taken.  Jardine and his tax news first:  one would not expect the administrator of the SCRD to  make it plain without prompting that the SCRD tax increases  this year came about while that  body was serving 25 per cent  fewer people due to the Sechelt  expansion and a like amount of  territory seceded to the district  municipality. The SCRD has  dealt with the Sechelt restructuring simply by pretending that  nothing happened.  That open house; a device  picked up from the B.C. Hydro  Cheekye-Dunsmuir hearings to  deflect public opinion: If your  neighbour is knowledgeable and  has a shrewd question you don't  get to hear because he's there at  a different time than you. It's so  much easier to manage than a  public meeting.  Compare this approach to  gathering public input and  disseminating information with  the elaborate dance the SCRD  went though on the matter of  supplying water and avoiding  undue interest charges. Could it  be they felt on surer ground  there?  Chairman Gurney announces  sternly   that   problem   septic  For sake  of argument  tanks will be monitored and  must be pumped out. Does that  mean hiring a Septic Tank  Pump Out Enforcement Officer?  To allow for the continuation  of septic tanks for 20 years the  niinimum lot size goes to half an  acre from a quarter. This  acknowledges that a quarter of  an acre is inadequate. But from  Langdale to Gibsons there is a  steady line of quarter acre lots ,  ��� on rock with septic tanks and'  they are polluting the bay.  (It will no doubt be said again  that the pollution is caused by  doggy do which is washed  downhill past the blameless septic tanks.)  To the defiant folks along the  waterfront may I note that the  day may come when the hard-  pressed taxpayers of Gibsons  become tired of pollution taking  place adjacent to their major  swimming beach and have a  council, enlist the aid of senior  governments to improve the  situation, long before the expiry  of Chairman Jim's 20 years.  The waterfront from the  Chekwelp Reserve to Langdale,  may then find itself footing the  bill for a sewer connection on a  specified area basis while its  former associates in Area F are  unaffected and regard their difficulties with the same callous  indifference being shown the  Town of Gibsons today.  A rational realignment will  come despite the best efforts of  the SCRD to protect its power  and privilege.  To me it seems that Gibsons  and Sechelt should be district  municipalities, Gibsons boundary being the ferry terminal  along Reed Road to Payne and  Pratt Roads, hooking up to the  sewage system. The balance of  Area E could be added to Area  D to establish a gfeenbelt between the ditrict municipalities.  Halfmoon Bay could be added  to Area A as a northern  greenbelt. The two district  municipalities and the two rural  areas could then sit down and  rationalize the use and the  revenues from the pulp mill and  the industrial land in the Port  Mellon area.  It is a proposal that could be  discussed rationally if we were  reasonable people but the staff  and directors of the SCRD will  go a far, fast and, as the open  house shows us, a devious  distance to prevent it being rationally discussed.  It seems an easy place this, to  whip up hatred and fear and  Gurney, Shaske, McGillivray  and Jardine will do just that to  keep the status quo which they  so enjoy.  As a footnote: if the approach suggested above or  something like it is not taken,  then larger changes may come  as impositions without greenbelt  provisions of any kind.  The Lifting of the Mist  All the long day the vapours played  At blindfold in the city streets,  Their elfin fingers caught and stayed  The sunbeams, as they wound their sheets  Into a filmy barricade  'Twixt earth and where the sunlight beats.  A vagrant band of mischiefs these,  With wings of grey and of web gown;  They live along the edge of seas,  And creeping out on foot of down,  They chase and frolic, frisk and tease  At blind man's buff with all the town.  And when at eventide the sun  Breaks with a glory through their grey,  The vapour-fairies, one by one,  Outspread their wings and float away  In clouds of colouring, that run  Wine-like along the rim of day.  Athwart the beauty and the breast  Of purpling airs they twirl and twist,  Then float away to some far rest,  Leaving the skies all colour-kiss't ���  A glorious and a golden West  That greets the Lifting of the Mist.  Pauline Johnson  removal  odyssey '-���  by Nancy MacLarty  Anyone who has written a'"'  cheque to the Government of;'  Canada will be familiar with '  'The   Receiver   General   of.  Canada'. We also know that a;'*  person who knowingly accepts  stolen property is, under the^  law, termed a 'receiver of stolen"'  goods'. There are all sorts of-'  receivers out there, but one in';  particular,   attached   to   the':  Canadian Coast Guard in Vic-U  toria, has the dubious honour,.  of   the   title   'Receiver   of.  Wrecks'.  No, the Receiver of Wrecks is 7,  not someone who takes in peo-7'  pie who have been through the.,]  emotional or physical mill, nor';'  does he, despite his title, take in ^  old automobiles. His job is to,7  receive marine wrecks if they:7  are deemed to be a hazard,.!  under  the  Navigable  Waters"  Protection Act. The catch is,  few wrecks are in this category.;  I  had  the  opportunity to'  speak  to  Mr.   Larry   Slaght,.  otherwise   known   as   the"  Receiver of Wrecks, because of  a sunken barge that lies on the"  bottom of Porpoise Bay in front,  of my home and about 50 yards'  off shore. It is unsightly at loW-  tide and could present a hazard  to small boats because of two'  large posts that stick up from it,"  but do not quite break the water  at high tide.  Mr. Slaght, a thoroughly  pleasant man, told me that there'  was not much he could do'  about removing it. He told me'  that people are forever sinking*  old barges and boats in B.C.  waters because it is easier and  cheaper for them to get rid of  old vessels this way instead of  having them towed away to  wherever old vessels get towed  to. Apparently, he knows of no  law against this, unless it impedes navigation. Then they can  remove it, but sue the owner for  removal charges...if they can  determine ownership.  Mr. Slaght related a case to'  me where a barge had been  deliberately sunk off White'  Rock a few years ago. It wals  washed by the tides onto White  Rock's beach and was, to say  the least, an eyesore for that  community. The Mayor of  White Rock tried every way he  could to have the Receiver of  Wrecks take it away, but it  wasn't a navigable hazard so he  couldn't do anything about it!  As all markings had been  removed before the barge was  sunk, ownership couldn't be  proved. In the end, it cost the  Town of White Rock $7000 to  have it disposed of.  Somehow, it just didn't seem  fair to me that innocent taxpayers have to bear the cost of  getting rid of someone else's  wreck.  So, I called the RCMP to inquire if they could stop or  charge a person caught in the  act of sinking a vessel. I was  told it depended on a number of  things. Apparently, if it were in  deep enough water then it's  alright. But if the boat sinker  was near shore or in shallows it  might be another story. The  constable did suggest however  that a good case might be made  for 'littering' under the Environmental Protection Act.  Not to be daunted, I then  called Environment Canada and  spoke.to a Mr. Hal Nelson. At  least...a note of concern! Mr.  Nelson told me that an application must be made for sinking  wrecks and that it may only be  granted if the sinking will not  become a problem to the environment either ecologically or  esthetically. Mr. Nelson seems  to think that my sunken barge is  a problem and will be visiting  the site in the near future to  make a determination as to its  status.  Now, wouldn't it be easier if  the Receiver of Wrecks, the  RCMP and Environment Canada could get together on these  things? After all, they're all  federal government.  Anyway, take note RCMP. A  person who deliberately sinks a  vessel must have a permit from  Environment Canada to do so.  and as for the Receiver of  Wrecks, your job could be  made much easier by referring  most calls to Environment  Canada. >  Just think...a little communication between government departments might have  saved the Town of White Rock  $7000 and most certainly would  have saved me a lot of long  distance telephone calls. Coast News, June 29,1987  A peeve on pets  Editor:  I assume you will print this  letter, so another person can  voice their opinion or Pet  Peeve.  My Pet Peeve is, people who  let their dogs run loose, to  quote: "for exercise".  Don't get me wrong, I love  animals, and they love me, but  to let a big dog run loose is inviting a tragedy for a small  child, or for that matter a small  animal.  We have cats, always did  have, and we had dogs too, but,  I built a good sized run, and  always 'exercised' my dogs on  my own property. Whenever I  took them out they were always  on a lead. As a child, dogs and  cats were part of our household,  but father always made sure our  dogs were under control. He  taught me what I know about  animals.  Some people in this town do  not know, or understand the  meaning of a 'controlled dog'.  One evening we were sitting and  watching TV when two big dogs  came rushing into our living  room. They came through the  back entrance, which just happened to be open at the time. I  guess the dogs were 'making  sport' of chasing cats. But to  have two big dogs come  crashing into your living room!  What is the limit one must  go?  Or the People who are letting  their dogs 'exercise' on the vacant lot behind us.  Fine, if they were on a lead or  'under control', but the dogs  jump over the creek and 'make  sport' of chasing cats or crapping on the grass.  I guess I'm just another voice  in the wilderness.  Gordon Montgomery  Grads lauded  Editor:  This is an open letter to the  Elphinstone Class of '87.  Graduation '87 is over now  but the good memories will last  a long, long time.  < And it's due to the Grads  themselves. This Elphinstone  Class of '87 showed just how  good our kids can be. From the  dance at the school, to the all-  night party, they had fun, they  behaved responsibly, they  treated the chaperones and each  other with respect and  politeness.  As a chaperon I had lots of  fun, and it became a pleasure  and not a chore to stay up all  night, to share the festivities and  the exhiliration of this impor  tant occasion.  Thanks must go to Celia  Fisher for her tireless efforts at  organizing the entire event, and  to Mary Belle and Will Buhner  who hosted the party.  As well, our gratitude and appreciation to all those parents  who thought it important to  share this 'once in a lifetime'  celebration with their kids, and  chaperone.  This is a fine group of young  people;   they've   shown  that,  with some trust  from both sides,  achieved. ?  Good luck to you all, and  thank you for being the way  you are. The best is yet to come.  Diana Zornes  and  a lot  respect  can be  No adventures  Editor:  . The Parent-Tot Summer  Adventures has regrettably been  cancelled for this summer. This  program is separate from the  fall/winter drop-in and is  therefore on a separate budget.  .. When the summer budget  was written it was our main objective to offer the lowest  registration fee possible, one  that would just cover costs.  ��� Although keeping fees low is  what we all want, we have  iearned (the hard way) that it  offers no flexibility or security  to the program.  '_ This year, because full  registration was not met, there  were insufficient funds to cover  the program's costs.  To the parents and children  who  registered  we  are  truly  sorry. They say good things are  worth waiting for so we'll be  back next year offering a summer full of adventures.  We would also like to thank  the following people who were  so receptive in helping us plan  our program:  Constable Soroken, Arne  Tveit-Petterson, Continuing  Education, Keith Baker, Carol  Rubin, Hobby House Day  Care, Alibi Wahoo Charters,  Tyee Airlines, Teddy Bear Day  Care, Linnadine's Shoes,  Wilson Creek Campground,  Chapman Creek Fish Hatchery,  Wilson Creek Hall, and Gibsons United Church Hall.  Have a great summer  everyone and we hope to see  you this fall.  Christine Espley  Karen Scott  Dixon explanation  Editor:  -. My friends are concerned  about me since I resigned from  the employ of the Sechelt Indian  Band Council as one of the  members of the provincial  negotiators for self-  government.  ,. My wife and I have gone  through a lot of unnecessary  '.mental stress and we have taken  .quite a bit of personal abuse  since the election of February  '28, 1987.  . Two wrongs never make  .[anything a right, and I am glad  to be able to enclose the follow-  ing text of a letter that I received  .on Thursday, June 18, 1987  .from the Sechelt Indian Band  /Council.  ,, "Subsequent to our letter to  you dated May 19, 1987, you  have asked us for a letter for  ��� your personnel records concerning the administration of this  ^Band during your Chieftainship.  T   "We are pleased to confirm  " that, during the period you were  .Chief,   as   with   all  previous  years, the Band had a clear  audit each year. In addition,  .during this period there was  never  any  allegation of impropriety made against you as  , Chief, or any of the Coun-  . dllors, or any Band advisor or  ., employee, that had any founda-  . tion in fact.  "We trust this letter will be  sufficient for your purposes,  and we wish you well in your  future endeavors." Signed by:  Chief Thomas Paul, Councillor  Lloyd Jeffries, Councillor  Lenora Joe, and Councillor  Warren Paull.  So, there; I resigned and I will  now move on to other obligations and take on other responsibilities.  I love the challenge of my  new job and I love the fact that  I am appreciated for what I can  do and contribute to others  across the province.  The expertise and knowledge  that I have gained in the past 14  years, Mr. Editor, I assure you I  will put to good use. I want us  all to succeed - but not through  maliciousness.  It took courage on the part of  the Chief and Council to write  this letter to me and I thank  them and also thank you for  publishing this letter.

Some 40  odd over 80's had a place of  honour in the centre of the hall,  when Master of Ceremonies,  Len Herder, opened the tea  welcoming all members with  special emphasis on our over  80's.  Jean and Bert Sherlock provided home cooked goodies,  cooked by Jean herself and the  laden tables of food were still  amply stocked after all appetites  were whetted.  The 69ers provided the entertainment in two installments  while solos by Walter James,  Doug Third and George Cavalier were well received.  Jean provided prizes for the  oldest lady and gentleman, for  the newest member to attain 80  years, and a variety of draw  prizes for the honoured guests.  It was a great day which provided the opportunity for many  to shake the hand of old friends  and new, that are, in some cases  unable to attend during the  year. Congratulations, Jean and  Bert and a big Thank You on  behalf of Branch 69.

The Peace Education Committee of the Sunshine Coast  Board of School Trustees has  released a report in which it  recommends a Peace Education  Curriculum be designed for  local schools.  The objectives as stated in the  report are to "deal with the  fears young people have about  the possibilities of a nuclear  holocaust in their future, to encourage positive changes in  behavioural patterns (such as a  reduction in playground violence) including self discipline  and acceptance for the responsibility for one's actions, to  develop critical thinking skills to  enable students to develop informed opinions on world  issues, and to allow students to  explore the global system and  problems of peace including  development, justice, and the  dignity of human life."  The report states the curriculum should include a history  of the peace movement and a  study of individuals who have  contributed to peace throughout the world.  It goes on to say, "The exploration of political systems  should begin with an understanding of Canadian political institutions and the methods by  which citizens can involve  themselves and influence decisions including legitimate  methods of protest such as letter  writing, petitions and peaceful  demonstrations.  "The curriculum should in  clude discussions of differences  and similarities amongst  political philosophies, cultures,  government and economic systems and structures throughout  the world.  "In providing a forum for  the discussion of the problems  in achieving a peaceful world,  the curriculum should focus on  attention on peace initiatives,  the Ifaited Nations, development in Third Worid Countries,  human rights and justice, the  causes of world poverty and  hunger, and the impact of the;  escalating arms race on poverty  and worid hunger and fee con--.  ; sequent impact on peace. -;>  Peace Education was also the  topic for a cable televisioii  education program which included an opportunity for the  public to express their views on  the desirability of a peace  education program. Despite the  opportunities for input the com?  mittee has not received a single  response to the idea of a peace  education curriculum." ?{  MORTGAGE UPDATE  Jun 26  6 mo.  tyr.  2yr.  3yr.  4yr.

The annual general meeting  of the society was held on Tuesday, June 23, in the recently  completed, conference' room.  The new addition of 700 sq. ft.  will serve as a board meeting  room, a place for the residents  for special events and many  other uses.  Shorncliffe, the facility that is  run by the Intermediate Care  Society, operated very successfully for the past few years  and this year was no exception.  Re-elected for three years was  Eric Rudland and Brian Bee-  cham, who also accepted the  post of treasurer. Elected for  three years was Bill McDermid  and, for one year, Frank  Lietner.  Peggy Connor, having served  three years, stepped down (she  does say no sometimes) and  Morgan Thompson was  defeated.  The remainder of the board  consists of Verity Purdy, Vice-  President; Ken Wells, Joyce  Kolibas, Roy Mansfield and  Ruth McGinnis, Government  Appointee.  Also among the 25 present  was auditor Doug Pothecary.  Once again Administrator  Howard Webster has a good  board to serve the needs of the  Society.  JUNGLE JIVE DANCE  The Student Council of  Chatelech Secondary School  held a Jungle Jive Dance contest  early in June and raised $290  for the Rick Hansen Fund.

Elected to office from the IS  present were: President Harris  Cole; Vice-President Tony  Dawkins; Directors Harry  Lomax, John Petula, Wayne  Turner, Lou Baldwin, Clem  Martel, Mike Shanks, Bernie la  Riviere and if this sounds like a  Lions Roster it does so for a  good reason.  The Lions members took  over the responsibility of looking after the units some years  ago and this has worked well for  all concerned. The Housing  Society is open to membership  from the public so if anyone  wishes to join contact one of the  above.  Ken McMillan is the man in  charge of admitting and can be  contacted at Greenecourt.  There are 37 units,  some  singles and a few doubles, all  presently   occupied   with   a  waiting list of 52.

She explained the origin of the big  I rock in the park behind the post  j office which is now at the cor-  ; ner of the new addition to the  ; library.  * First of all, it's called a  \ 'plinth'. It was erected in 1966  * to commemorate the centennial  ��of the joining of Vancouver  I Island and the Mainland into  | one colony as well as the  j development of the land pur-  J chased   by   the   Community  * Association in 1958 into a park.  ; The original plaque from the  1 plinth soon went missing and  * when the post office/library  ] building was constructed in  11967 out of bingo funds, a pla-  * que was put inside the post of-  ifice to avoid vandalism. The  j; plinth had also been defaced  (looking very attractive with the  j siding up on the back. Inside it's  ivery spacious looking and twice  'the size of the old one.

THANK YOU  Congratulations Sechelt  Council for acting so swiftly to  take off most of the area marked 'commercial' along the Davis  Bay beachfront and Highway  101. Also thanks for cancelling  the hearing June 20, which  came upon most of us too  quickly.  WRITE! WRITE! WRITE!  Last time I looked at the  plan, Whitaker Road, seaside,  was 'commercial'. Sure hope  anyone having any objections to  that will check the plan at the  District Hall first then write  council.  If you do or do not want that  concession stand in the south  end of Davis Bay, let the Sunshine Coast Regional District  know how you feel, and fast.  Attend the meeting on the  Martinez Pub issue when the  date is set. Accompany your  'yes' or 'no' with a letter. Much  easier to keep track if it is in  writing.  SUE LENEVE  This talented lady made a  visit to the library on June 20,  doubly rewarding. We were not  only able to bask in her sunny  smile and good company but  could see and touch some of her  displayed knitted goods. Sue  will be back again.

WHO'S FOR THE KIDS?  The message is firm and  clear. Protest, everybody, but  don't take it out on the kids.  Frances Fleming (Coast  News, June 22) decries the  work-to-rule tactic our school  teachers have taken to oppose  the new legislation.  Although this legislation, so  abruptly thrust upon them, demeans schoolteachers, they do,  by their reaction to it, demean  themselves.  And where, Frances asks, are  the voices of all the others who  are party to the schooling of our  children?  One shudders to think of a  complete shutdown of schools  with pickets beating of those  desperate for a pay cheque, yet  with the help of the TV news  cameras such an action could  seize the attention of us all and  rub our noses in it, too.  By such a forthright step you  can make vividly clear the injustices done you. Those of us  on the sidelines may even be jarred into some response,, some  reaction.  A referendum, for instance,  for each annual budget might,  and underline might, draw us to  give attention to our most important of public works, the  schools.  BITS AND PIECES  In the Langdale Elementary  newsletter we learn that the Gibsons Garden Club is sponsoring  a sunflower growing contest for  children aged three to 12.

For centuries beyond counting, astrologers studied and  based their analyses on seven  heavenly bodies: Sun, Moon,  Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter  and Saturn. In 1781, Uranus  was located, followed by Neptune in 1846, and Pluto in 1930.  Each of these discoveries indicated major pivot points in  the world's evolution. Uranus  presaged an increase in revolutionary activity. Neptune seemed to indicate a spiritual  questing that involved the  breaking away and splintering  of major religious doctrines.  Pluto was discovered as the  world developed the capacity to  annihilate itself.  In 1977 a new astronomical  entity was indentified between  Saturn and Uranus. Named  Chiron after the Centaur immortal in Greek mythology, it  has been classified as a  planetoid. With a 400 mile  diameter, it's too big for an  asteroid and too small for a  planet.  Thanks to the age of computers, its orbits, past, present  and future, could be calculated  and published fairly quickly,  enabling astrologers to start  their studies. What does the  position of Chiron at the time  of a person's birth indicate  about their basic personality?  What happens when it travels  past a person's sun position?  Moon position?  In the myths, Chiron was the  son of Philyra and Chronos  (Saturn) when he was messing  around on his wife. Brother of  Zeus and Pluto, he was immortal.  He was a teacher and a  healer. Greece's greatest heroes  were said to have learned from  him: Achilles, Jason, Asclepios,  and Heracles to name a few.  Although the necessary skills of  war were taught, he was best  known for healing and astrology. In the end, he was accidentally wounded by  Heracles.  For some reason he was  unable to heal himself. Unable  to die because of his 'immortal'  status, he lived in suffering until  he decided to give up his life in  place of Prometheus.  In the 10 years since Chiron  was discovered, astrologers  have managed to put together  some correspondences between  its transits and life events of  humans. The planetoid, rather  than being a 'wounded healer'  like his namesake, appears to be  a 'wounding healer'.  It seems to precipitate incidences that initially hurt or  wound but result in some kind  of healing experience. For example: a woman's husband  leaves her after years of marriage; the extreme emotional  upset of the divorce causes her  to seek psychiatric help where,  for the first time in her life she  gets the help she needs in dealing with being sexually abused  as a child. In a nutshell, she suffers a wound but receives healing for a deeper hurt and comes  out of the whole situation  healthier than ever.  ��� At this time, Chiron is passing through the last third of the  Gemini constellation. Any major impact it has will be felt by  people born between June 12  and 22, December 13 and 22,  March 11 and 20, September 14  and 23. This goes on for about  one year.  Anyone born at these times,  who goes through an experience  that seems to fit, or not, I'd like  to hear about it.

By the end of the second  week of July, the little ones are  playing school with their  friends, and the older ones are  complaining that "there's  nothing to do, Mum!"  June's Pender Persons are  the teachers at Madeira Park  Elementary and Pender Harbour Secondary, the people  with whom our children spend  so much of their days.  Teaching is a tough job, and  requires dedication, devotion  and many long hours of preparation and marking during  the evenings and on weekends.  Education is the best investment  for the future of our province,  and we want to thank our  teachers publicly for their work  for and with our children during  the past school year. We really  do appreciate you!  BEAR FACTS  A bear cub has been spotted  in the Middlepoint area this past  week. When baby bear is seen,  you can be certain that mama  bear is close by keeping a  motherly eye on her cub.  Remember that bears are wild  animals, and don't get between  mama and cub.  Garbage has unfortunately  become bear food, encouraging  the animals to roam near  houses, farms and the dump.  Bears are less frightened of  humans than ever, which makes  them even more dangerous.  LEGION NOTES  Branch 112 of the Royal  Canadian Legion has some  events coming up for your summer entertainment.

In a report to the Parks Committee last week, Alexander  outlined the work he did in the  first two weeks and future work  which he plans.  Already he has mowed and  slashed an area around the  playground in Cliff Gilker Park  and removed "dangerous and  hazardous trees".  The boat ramp at Cooper's  Green has been cleared, a stump  removed, and a retaining log installed in the upper trailer parking lot.  At the cemetery, trees have  been cut down and removed,  rocks have been removed from  the lower half, and grass and  grave sites have been maintained.  In the future, Alexander  plans to remove the ladder logs  in Soames Park and replace  them with new trail paths. He  told the Coast News that the existing stepping logs were rotting  and unsafe.  At the meeting it was decided  to order 12 new picnic tables to  be put in parks around the Sunshine Coast and a hew four  wheel drive, all terrain vehicle to  use in work at the various parks  as well as in other SCRD functions.  School  taxes  Continued from page 1  They say, "The trustees of  School District 46 are in an  unenviable position. They are  faced with having to budget sufficiently to maintain quality of  education services and programs, and to maintain the  physical plants in the district,  with insufficient funding from  the provincial government. The  only recourse has been to increase the Supplementary  Residential Tax.  "The result is to focus the  funding burden on residential  taxpayers and an unrealistic cost  restraint program on the  board."

Advertisement  Coast News, June 29,1987  It could happen to you  Don't think that just because  today none of your family or  friends has a mental or physical  handicap that the plight of  disabled members of our community doesn't concern you.  Tomorrow, through an accident  of birth, disease, stroke or  physical mishap, you or yours  could need our help.  Handicaps occur most often  through difficult births, problems during pregnancy, prematurity or by brain damage at  a later date caused by a disease  like meningitis, a blow to the  head or road accident. It's not  something we like to think  about, but it happens.  "Be the best that you can be."  Those are the words of Rick  Hansen. Rick set goals for  himself and with help and determination was fortunate enough  to have achieved them.  The Sunshine Association  for the Handicapped. (SAH)  goals are very much the same  as Rick's. We believe that each  person is a valuable asset to the  community, no matter what  their handicap. But their potential must be developed.  11.

Friends & Members of our Community  As President of the Sunshine Association  for the Handicapped, I would like to say a few  words about our Organization.  The purpose of our Association is to serve  the handicapped population of our Coast. Our  aim is to ensure that they are extended the  same rights, privileges.and opportunities that  the rest of us, for the most part, take for  granted. To meet this goal we require additional developmental, educational, legal,  social, recreational and health services to ensure that the handicapped, and especially the  mentally handicapped, meet their full potential.  We on the Coast are a small organization,  but we have a strong resource base and  through the provincial association for the handicapped (BCMHP) we can call on the  resources of any affiliated group in the province for help and assistance in solving our  local, or even individual, problems.  The Sunshine Association for the Handicapped is currently in the process of  developing several new life skills programs in  conjunction with the Ministry of Social Services  and Housing. These would teach vital independent living skills to our clients and are  aimed at integrating the handicapped into the  fabric of our society.  We enjoy the support and co-operation of  our members and constituents and receive the  same wholehearted support from every  representative of the three ministries that fund  our programs, namely Health, Education and  Social Services and Housing. We value their  trust and intend to do all we can to maintain it.  We ask now for your advice, care and concern and for your personal support by becoming a member of the Sunshine Association for  the Handicapped. I can assure you that you  will find it a rewarding experience.  Peter Bandi  President  Minibus needed!  As  things  stand  now,  the  ^Mini Bus is the only form of  republic  transportation  available  to elderly or disabled people  between Sechelt and Gibsons  and, even though they try, it  ^Cannot serve everyone in need.  ��� As a result,  many people in  wheelchairs   are   confined   to  their homes, unable to take part  in  community  or educational  activities.  The Mini Bus Service must  be supported and facilities expanded on our Coast so that as  many of our disabled population as possible are able to expand their horizons and reach  their full potential. At the same  time, expanded bus service  would be of great assistance to  the elderly and others in need of  transportation to and from  clinics and St. Mary's Hospital.  The Sunshine Association  for the Handicapped strongly  urges responsible citizens of the  Sunshine Coast to support the  Mini Bus and to lobby for an  expanded service. For more information on how you can help,  call 885-5881 during business  hours.  Department, flyer distribution  and envelope stuffing for local  merchants and associations are  just some of the jobs undertaken  by Achievement Centre  workers.

Helping  families  A chapter of the Family Support Institute has been formed  on the Sunshine Coast to help  families who live with children  who have mental and/or physical handicaps or who are  developmentally delayed.  The goals of the group are to  provide up to date information  on developmental disabilities; to  provide training and education  in areas that families feel they  need help in and to help families  connect with other families and  resources.  Opportunities for summer  camp, workshops on subjects  such as wills and estates, future  job opportunities and help with  the educational system are just  some of the items addressed at  meetings.  If you have a disabled child,  Reg or Mary Robinson would be  glad to hear from you to help  put you in touch with the supports available here on the  Coast. Call them at 886-2382.  L  On Listening  When I ask you to listen to me,  and you start by giving advice, you  have not done what I asked.  When I ask you to listen to me  and you begin to tell me why I  shouldn't feel that way, you are  trampling on my feelings.  When I ask you to listen to me  and you feel you have to do  something to solve my problem, you  have failed me, strange as it may seem.  Listenl All I ask is that you  listen, not talk or do...just  hear me.  When you do something for me  that I can and need to do for myself,  you contribute to my fear and  inadequacy.  And I can do for myself. I'm not  helpless. Maybe discouraged and  faltering, but not helpless.  But when you accept as simple fact  that I do feel what I feel, no matter  how irrational, then I can quit trying  to convince you and get about the business  of understanding what's behind this  irrational feeling. And when that's  clear, the answers are obvious and I  don't need advice.

Then, my mother suggested that I move home, tum  Mike's old workshop into a  studio and do my writing there.  It made sense economically so I  took her up on it.  Cu Ching was, of course, still  there, having outlived his  master. He was a funny little  animal with a black patch over  one eye that gave him a vaguely  piratical look. Now Mike was  gone, Cu Ching began to make  small overtures towards me,  catching at my pant leg as I  passed him; jumping up on the  couch beside me. I treated him  rather cavalierly at first, pretending not to notice his obvious  attempt to make friends. Even  Mike's death could not abate all  the bad memories and Cu Ching  had been very much his pet.  But Cu Ching was not about  to be ignored. He sensed that I  was fond of cats and could be  won over. He kept up his little  campaign and gradually, he  broke down my foolish defenses. How could I blame an innocent animal for what a sick man  had done?  In short order, J became  honestly attached to Cu Ching.  He virtually lived in my studio,  watching me quizzically as I  laboured over poems and stories  Booking In  he could never read or even  faintly comprehend. As time  went on, Cu Ching began to  ameliorate my still none too  friendly feelings towards Mike.  He had actually left me a legacy  worth cherishing.  Unlike most cats, Cu Ching  enjoyed going for car rides.  Mike and my mother had been  in the habit of taking him along  on picnic jaunts to Ruby Lake,  a scenic resort some miles further up the coast. One Sunday,  my brother, Marty, was visiting  from the city and we decided to  take mum for a drive to see the  lake again. Cu Ching, as was his  custom, came along for the  ride.  At Ruby Lake, we let Cu  Ching out of the car to do a bit  of exploring, hunting or  whatever took his fancy. He immediately headed for the woods  and disappeared. "He always  comes back," said my mother.  But on this occasion, Cu  Ching must have strayed farther  afield than usual. When it came  time to head for home, the little  cat was nowhere to be found.  We called and scoured the  bushes to no avail. It was growing dark and finally we were  obliged to head back to Gibsons  without Cu Ching. "Poor little  thing. We should never have  brought him," my mother fretted.  Marty and I felt equally as  bad about it. The next day,  Dollarton idyll  by Montague Royal  Although novelist and poet  Malcolm Lowry spent his most  productive years in the Vancouver area, chiefly as a squatter on the Dollarton foreshore,  this important period of his life  has never been thoroughly  documented by previous biographers. Now, in her new book  Malcolm Lowry - Vancouver  Days, (Harbour), writer Sheryl  Salloum has remedied this oversight. Based on exhaustive,  research and exclusive inter- ?  views, the study sheds much  new light on this crucial phase  in the rocky career of the man  who wrote Under The Volcano.  Salloum's book opens with a  brief reprise of Lowry's life  prior to his move to Vancouver  in 1940. It deals with his affluent but unhappy upbringing;  his equally painful schooldays;  the voyage on a merchant ship  that resulted in his first novel  Ultramarine; his friendship with  older poet and mentor Conrad  Aiken; his disastrous first marriage to Jan Gabrial; his  drunken years in Mexico and  the meeting with his second  wife, Margerie Bonner. These  matters have been explored  quite thoroughly by other  writers and Ms Salloum merely  skims over them.  With Lowry firmly ensconced  in Vancouver, Salloum slows  down and begins to examine in  depth, the 14 years he was to  call the West Coast his home.  What emerges is a much fairer  and more human picture of a  man, too often dismissed as an  irresponsible drunk who just  happened  to   possess  genius.  Lowry displayed many qualities  that endeared him to those who  knew him best and it is to these  people that Salloum turns for  their recollections. She has  managed to track down and interview, a number of the  writer's friends and drinking  cronies who have not previously  had a chance to voice their opinions.  The book sparkles with  reminicences of a simpler time  when Lowry and his wife,  Margerie, lived in various  Dollarton shacks without^  benefit of running water or electricity, communing with nature,  various literary visitors and their  fellow beach dwellers. It was,  for Lowry, the happiest and  most creative period of his  brief, troubled life. Certainly  there were drinking bouts for  Lowry's alcoholism was as  much a part of him as his talent,  but there were also lengthy  stretches of sobriety when he  applied himself assiduously to  his craft. A fanatical perfectionist, he revised his work constantly.  Malcolm Lowry is glimpsed  through many eyes in this important and enlightening study.  Phil and Hilda Thomas, Earle  Birney, Gloria Onley, Al Purdy,  George Robertson and Curt  Lang are among those who contribute their impressions of the  unpredictable writer. Writer  Norman Newton offers a particularly trenchant portrait of  the complex Lowry in his West  Coast heyday.  Sheryl Solloum has produced  an excellent, much needed book  that fills in many gaps in the  legend of a remarkable writer.  Play Parade opens  on July 10th  Driftwood Players' Summer  Play Parade opens on July 10 in  the Gibsons Elementary School  Gym, transformed into a  theatre for the occasion.  To open the season, which  runs 23 days, is a fine new play,  Seascape with Sharks and  Dancer, by Don Nigro. This  three-act play has recently  received a great deal of attention bcause of its sell-out,  critically acclaimed production  at the renowned Ashland  Festival in Oregon.  The play is set in a beach  bungalow. The young man who  lives there has pulled a lost  young woman from the ocean.  This is an offbeat love story,  full of poignancy and humour.  Caution: not suitable for  children; adult subject matter  and coarse language.  The performers in Seascape  with Sharks and Dancer are  Alison Kelly and Edward Price,  both graduates of Vancouver's  Studio 58.  Tickets will be on sale this  week at many locations on the  Sunshine Coast, or may be purchased at the door. Performances start promptly at 8 pm.  Adults: $5.

It was entirely possible that Cu Ching  had fallen victim to a raccoon.  But there he was, sitting beside  the road, mewing plaintively  and seemingly none the worse  for his adventure. I picked him  up and petted him and we headed gratefully for home.  Needless to say, my mother  was overjoyed to see Cu Ching.  "You bad cat," she chided him,  happily.  To be continued  .THE.

Tucked away by the side of the  sea, this lovely place offers a casual elegance which is conducive to  celebrating a special evening.  We arrived just before 8 pm. The heat of the day was beginning  to lift and a soothing breeze was blowing in off the water. Once inside we were seated by the pleasant hostess at a quiet table in a corner. The sun was just beginning to sink into the sea, waves lapped  at the shore, a gentle pink hue began to paint the sky.  We were delighted by the selection offered at the Bonniebrook.  My friend was torn between the special soup de jour, cream of  cauliflower, and the Caesar salad. Not being able to decide between  the two of them she opted instead for theproscuitto with melon. I  chose the house salad.  The proscuitto with melon was served most attractively and was  declared to be delightful. The house salad was just right, not too  much, not too little, crisp vegetables with a subtle creamy dressing.  The main course selections are varied. Pasta, chicken, fish and  steak are all offered. My friend chose the prawns sauteed wth  brandy. This delightful dish was accompanied by sculpted  cauliflower, carrots and rice. The prawns were gently nestled in a  shell and were plump, pink and tender. This dish was declared to be  excellent.  I chose the New York steak with prawns. I couldn't decide between fish and meat and so with this dish I could have the best of  both. The dish arrived piping hot. The steak was done to perfection  and the prawns were delectable. The same vegetables accompanied  this dish and once again the portions were just right.  As we enjoyed the meal and the atmosphere of the tastefully appointed surroundings, the owner, Bryan Rubin, could be seen  unobtrusively checking to see that each one of his guests was happy and well looked after. The service was excellent and the atmosphere most congenial.  For dessert my friend chose the Cointreau crepes, a subtle and  delightful marriage of flavour and texture. I opted for the Pears  Belle Helene, an exquisite offering. The hot chocolate sauce over  the combined flavours of whipped cream, ice cream and pears  sprinkled with slivered almonds lent just the right touch of divine  decadence. The meal was completed by generous cups of steaming  hot coffee. The perfect ending to a perfect meal.  After dinner we walked down to the water to enjoy the rest of the  sunset and reflected that dinner at the Bonniebrook is a really  special treat in a really special setting.

There were several well'played  games which were decided by  one run.  In the final it was a play-off  between the top two teams with  the Jets emerging the victors  over the Clinic Swat.  In the girls and boys (12 to 15  years) division it was a repeat of  the regular schedule with first  place Elphi Rec winning over a  surprising LA Queens team in  the girls play-off.  The boys' winners were  Swanson's Ready-Mix who had  dominated all season, although  Buccaneer Marina did give them  a few anxious innings.  T-ball teams enjoyed several  games, both Friday night and  Saturday morning with exhibitions of new found skills, confidence and excitement by all.  In keeping with, their apparent motto, 'Everybody's a  Winner', they all received  medallions for participation and  then a trip to the concession  stand for a free refreshment.  Thanks to all the coaches and  their assistants, scorekeepers,  umpires, parents and grandparents for their cheering and  support.

TIDELINE  BOAT MOVING LTD.  DORHN BOSCH  WHARF RD  SECHELT  SC Golf ��t Country Club  Thinking of Boat Moving?  GIVE US A CALL  by Bill McKinnon  It is a great commentary on  golfers, that when a group of  ardent players are competing  for the Senior Mens' Club  Championship, play ceases  while a young male deer  meanders across the course.  Speaking of 'deers', the Nine  and Eighteen Hole Ladies'  groups combined to participate  in a 'Beat the Champ Tournament'. Winners with their net  scores were as follows: Mardi  Scott 63, Louise Varco 64,  Wilma Sim 64, Marion Reeves  65, Glenna Salahub 66 and  Isabelle Rendleman net 66.  The Eighteen Hole Ladies'  group completed the second day  of play for the Marg Langdale  Eclectic Tournament which was  won by Leila Comrie with net  53 with Vera Munro runner up  with net 56.

THe Ball Hawgs' winning  ways continued downing the  Eagles 12-9 in extra innings.  Cedars had a very close game  with Roberts Creek squeaking  out the win 5-4 in the top of the  seventh.

Sechelt and Gibsons high  schools had their graduation  ceremonies last week with 54  students graduating from  Chatelech and 85 from  Elphinstone.  Elphinstone had its evening  Monday. The theme was 'The  Best is Yet to Come' and in  keeping with this, Principal  Dave Stignant stated in his address, "Teenage years are very  difficult years. Some say you  can't change the world. I don't  buy it. The most important  thing is that you become a  lifelong doer and learner.  You're right. The best is yet to  come. I welcome you folks into  the adult world."  Wednesday was the evening  for Chatelech. Their theme was  'Friends' and utilized a candlelit  procession to start the ceremonies. Mrs. Pierre brought  greetings from Chief Tom Paul  of the Sechelt Indian Band,  "Now you must spread your  wings and leave home. This will  be hard for you. You will no  longer have your parents to  wake you up."  Valedictorian Jacqueline  Branca said, "Friends is the  theme of our graduating class  and friends we'll always be. We  hope that government, business  and labour will one day work  out their problems. When the  going gets tough, the tough get  going and we readily accept the  challenge."  Both Chatelech and  Elphinstone graduation ceremonies were graced with the  presence of the respective  mayors and representatives of  the regional district, school  board, and the Ministry of  Education.

Last week's meeting of the Ferry  Task Force heard that some minor,  but significant, steps have been taken  by the B.C. Ferry Corporation to improving transportation to the Sunshine Coast. Chuck Weatherill  reported that the corporation has  agreed to reduce fares for motorcycles  with sidecars to that charged for  motorcycles without. Previously the  fare was equivalent to that charged  for a car.  Weatherill was previously responsible for having commuter discount  rates implemented for motorcycles.  Jim Gumey also had good news. In  a meeting held earlier last week with  Tourism Minister Bill Reid and MLA  Harold Long, he said the minister was  informed, for the first time, of some  minor issues which affect the conve  nience of tourists travelling to the  Sunshine Coast. Gurney told Mr.  Reid that, although there are late  ferry sailings every Sunday evening  from the Sunshine Coast during July  and August, they are not scheduled.  Reid was also unaware that the fare  charged coming over to Langdale  covered the return trip, and Gurney  pointed out that it is not indicated  anywhere on ticket stubs or signs on  the toll booths.  According to Gurney, the minister  was very sympathetic and agreed to  use his influence to see the late Sunday night sailings scheduled during  the summer and clarification of the  fare coverage posted somewhere. He  also provided valuable information  on lobbying for better ferry service.

In an effort to  alleviate the impact, he made two  recommendations which he asked the  PUC to take to the regional district.  His first suggestion was that the  district agree to accept 50 per cent of  the money owed by mobile home  Having babies  owners by the due date, with the  balance to be paid by December IS,  without penalty.  Secondly, he asked that in the  future the charges be collected directly  from the trailer owners, instead of  from the trailer park owners, so that  those people don't become 'tax collectors' for the district.  Both recommendations will be  taken to the meeting of the regional  board next Thursday.

Over the past 10 years or so, the debate has been  heating up about whether it is necessary to have  caesareans for subsequent births after one has occurred. Twenty years ago, the answer was a  definitive yes. Well, that certainly has changed.  In the beginning of the age of vaginal birth after  caesarean (VBAQ, there were only a few brave  souls who had what it took to fight solitary battles  against intense resistance. These women were  especially committed to the importance of normal  birth and were willing to work to maximize their  chances of avoiding the risks and traumas of major  surgery.  At first, they had precious little ammunition on  their sides. They quoted statistics from the  Netherlands, where caesarean has long been  regarded as necessary only if circumstances occur  in an individual pregnancy that require one. Working with this little evidence, and a lot of conviction,  the women worked hard to convince their caregivers to support their wishes. When that was impossible, some resorted to avoidance tactics; ie.,  staying home with an illegal midwife, or delaying  going into hospital until the birth was so imminent  that a caesarean was impossible. Such determination, and desperation, paved the way for many to  follow in an increasingly smoother style.  Today, there has been enough success, research  and time to sell an increasing population of heath  care workers on the concept. On June 8, 1987 at  5:50 am, our own St. Mary's Hospital in Sechelt  hosted its first VBAC. It was a third birth for the  mother, and her second VBAC. This precedent setting, historic event may change many lives on the  Sunshine Coast. Now that VBAC's are no longer  rejected out of hand from St. Mary's, local post-  caesarean mothers will have a much greater chance  of avoiding what may be unnecessary major  surgery.  The reason there has been such long-standing  caution about VBAC is that medical personnel fear  that the woman's old scar will rupture under the  stress of labour/delivery. Statistically, there is approximately a one per cent chance of that occurring, compared with the very much higher risks of  serious infection, haemorrhage and post-operative  complications associated with repeat caesareans.  Also, caesareans tend to be more conveniently  schedulable, and offer greater financial rewards to  the practitioner.  Silent Knife, a classic book in the area of  caesarean prevention, outlines startling and encouraging research. Apparently, in-hospital  VBAC's, have a 90 to 95 per cent success rate,  compared to women who have not had a previous  caesarean, who succeed in giving vaginal birth in  only 80 to 85 per cent of cases. Apparently, the  support committment and care that is presently required for a VBAC can have very positive results.  In January 1987,1 had the honour and privilege  of assisting a woman to achieve a VBAC in a small  B.C. hospital. Her delight with the outcome, the  ease of her recovery and her increase of self-esteem  compared to after her caesarean delivery, has been  a continuing source of gratification to me.  VBAC's are a version of birth whose time has  come, for those who want them. Not all post-  caesarean mothers do. The mother's health or attitudes, the baby's position, sometimes require  elective caesarean. 18.  Coast News, June 29,1987  Susan Cawtey, long-time regional district planning secretary,  received a warm send-off from directors last Thursday evening.

Johnston  Master of Municipal Affairs  Room 301  Parliament Buildings  Victoria, B.C.  :The residents of Gambier  Island are still in a state of  srjock having received their Property Tax Notices for 1987  wjiich reflect a 50.7 per cent increase in the school tax mill rate  over 1986. The resultant increase in gross taxes payable appears to be in a range of 40 to 60  percent.  The Provincial Government  will appreciate that this area of  B.��*. has not been enjoying a  thriving economy over the past  five years. In fact the converse is  true and in times such as this,  any tax increase whatsoever let  alqne 50 per cent is a profound  burden on the majority of Gambier Island's residents.  fn the little time that is  available I have called a few  friends and neighbours and we  have agreed to submit this letter  to*you to express our over  whelming concern, and to request that your Ministry undertake immediate action to roll  back this increase.  We have been in touch with  the Government Agent's office  in Sechelt regarding this matter  and that, office recommended  we contact a Mr. Roy Mills of  the school district at Gibsons.  When I called Mr. Mills he indicated that he was being inundated with telephone calls of  protest but that I should call  Mrs. Maureen Clayton, chairman of the school district at  Sechelt. This I did but was advised that Mrs. Clayton was on  holidays. It should perhaps be  noted that, when I asked Mr.  Mills if the 50.7 per cent annual  increase was due to some extraordinary item, and that the  mill rate could revert back to a  more reasonable level in 1988,  he expressed the view that we  are unlikely to see any decrease  next year or in subsequent years  relative to the 1987 assessment.  Mrs. Johnston, I have waited  one week after receiving my  Property Tax Notice before  writing to you to accomodate a  'cooling off period of my emotions.  In my case, by deferring  other essential expenses during  the coining year I will be able to  raise the additional funds to  cover this gross increase. I am  certain, however, that many  other Gambier residents will be  less fortunate and the Ministry  of Finance and Corporate Affairs will see a number of  defaults on tax receipts this  year. The result will be of  course that our government will  issue judgments against such  properties with the potential  future confiscation of properties. Such a catastrophe seems  to me to be a very real possibility and I would reinforce my request that your ministry intervene in this matter.  It is my opinion that there are  few, if any, precedents in this  country for an annual tax increase of the magnitude we have  seen this year on Gambier  Island. Furthermore, if the increase is not rolled back, the  damage done to the local  economy will be devastating.  A.C.
