Array 25* per copy on news stands      May 25,1987        Volume 41  Issue 21  But resentment grows  New era at Gibsons Wharf  by Ken Coffins  A new*era may have begun  for the government wharf in  Gibsons and there is bitter  resentment by some commercial  boat owners about the change.  Traditionally no charges have  been exacted from commercial  enterprises moving cargo across  the wharf even though there has  always been the mechanism in  place to do so. Similarity, vehicle weight restrictions and No  Parking have never been enforced.  All this is changing, however,  with the newly appointed wharfinger/harbour manager Larry  Reardon. "lamabusinessman  selling space," Mr. Reardon  stated. He is paid entirely on  commission and is industriously  cleaning up all the clutter on the  dock as well as enforcing all the  rules.     .  The clean docks have not impressed Mark Wilton of the Inlet Hawk. His beachcombing  boat would have sank last Tuesday if it had not been for the efforts of Ian Wilson and Jake  Spinks, both who have boats at  the dock. It was retired  beachcomber John Moore who  noticed the boat was sinking in  the morning. A scow pump was  supplied by fisherman Dale  Pearce.  Mr. Wilton feels the wharfinger should have expressed  some concern even though he is  not technically responsible for  rescuing sinking vessels tied at  the dock.  Fisherman Ian Corrance,  who has utilized the dock  facilities for 17 years has been  issued a Compliance Order  stating if his dog, Spot, is found  off a leash one more time, he  and his vessel will be denied use  of the dock. Mr. Corrance  claims the dog was at his side,  under control, and attached to a  leash, "I was just not on the  other end of the leash," he said.  When asked about the opposition of the boat owners,  Mr. Reardon stated, "I love  every one of the guys. They are  an independent bunch and the  fact they are independent causes  the problem."  By Gibsons Counci  Another lease approved  After months of negotiations on various fronts, the Sechelt and. District Chamber of Commerce, via  president Kay Bailey, handed over the keys of Rockwood Lodge to Mayor Bud Koch and the District  Municipality of Sechelt last Saturday. The chamber had undertaken the restoration of the historic lodge,  and the district municipality assumed the balance of the chamber's $69,500 mortgage, which included the  purchase of the lot in front of the lodge and the trailers and building adjacent to it.  Use still undetermined  Sechelt gets lodge  Sechelt Municipal District  now has title to Rockwood  Lodge, but the use that it will be  put to is still undecided. At  council meeting last Wednesday, Kay Little and Betty Keller  from the Writers' Festival,  made a presentation requesting  that the decision be postponed  for six weeks while the arts community in the area puts together  a proposal.  Little assured council, "We  fully recognize that bills must be  paid and that Rockwood Lodge  must operate as a viable profit-  making enterprise. The taxpayers of Sechelt must not have  to bear the burden of such a  facility."  : The two women were appearing as individuals, they told the  meeting, because there had not  been time to meet with the  various groups of artists before  ���the meeting. They had only had  enough time, they said to  establish that their concept was  financially viable and asked for  the six week period to do  market research and bring their  ideas to the Arts Council.  7 Ms. Little pointed out the  "enormous potential" that the  lodge has as facility for in-  residence programs similar to  the highly successful Writers in  'Residence program. Groups  ^such as "school principals,  churches, political think tanks,  legal and business seminars, artists and sports groups" provide  :a good potential market she ex-  'plained.  ' 'Banff got its economic start  in much the same way a couple  of generations ago."  Council was unanimous in  their support of the concept and  endorsed the delay Jn the  disposition of a lease for  Rockwood Lodge.  Another potential lessee,  Dick Elvin, expressed some surprise at council's reactions.  Elvin has put together a proposal to lease the facility and  use it as a private nursing home.  He told the Coast News that  Mayor Koch had told him he  would have "first priority in the  granting of the lease."  He ran a large ad in a local  paper last week, describing his  proposed senior's complex and  inviting inquiries.  Koch, however, denied that  he had ever promised preferential treatment of Elvin's proposal. "When I first started to  buy Rockwood Lodge in 1980,  it was with the idea that it would  be a cultural centre and that's a  committment I intend to see  through to its completion,"; he  told the Coast News, v.;  Elvin was aware qf.this, JCpch  said, and ^any^  be granted to him would only be  for five years.  In discussions which took  place at council meeting,  however, it was pointed out that  once a nursing home is  established you can't "simply  turf them out" once the mortgage is paid.  With the six week delay,  Keller and Little hope to be able  to come back to council with a  concrete business proposal.  They will use the time to  research the market and gather  support from various arts  groups and the community.  Any letters of support should be  sent to: Kay Little, RR 1, Halfmoon Bay, or Betty Keller, RR  1, Sandy Hook.  I . Walter and Inez Hendrickson  7- have received Gibsons Council's  support in their application for  a foreshore lease next to the  Gibsons Marina. The decision  was reached at a special meeting  called to deal with the issue last  Thursday.  The lease will legalize the existence of the wharf in front of  Hendricksons' property which  has been there for many years.  It was referred to in a letter  from the Ministry of Forests  and Lands that council dealt  with at their May 5 meeting.  The ministry asked council to  either give their approval to this  and one other foreshore lease,  or to arrange for the removal of  the existing wharfs. When coun-  7-vc_ passed a motion to approve  the application, aldermen  believed they were only dealing  with one lease, while Gibsons  Clerk Administrator Lorraine  Goddard assumed the motion  covered both leases mentioned  in the letter.  At the May 19 council  meeting, the confusion was  discovered and the matter of the  Hendricksons' lease was raised.  Alderman Bob Maxwell asked  Mrs. Hendrickson if the existing  wharf was used for commercial  purposes and she replied that it  was not, that the seven boats  moored there belonged to  friends and neighbours. However, Joe Hunt, one of those  neighbours rose and told council that he had been mooring his  boat there for years and had  been charged $100 moorage fee  and assigned a place to tie-up.  Conflicting information  about the use of the wharf and  the reason for the application  prompted council to call a  meeting on May 21 to consider  the question in greater depth.  Maxwell stated his opposition  to the lease and listed his objections. He pointed out that the  Hendricksons had enjoyed the  use of the foreshore and their  wharf for many years without  paying taxes on it. Although  Mrs. Hendrickson maintained  that the increased value had  been reflected in taxes paid on  the property, Maxwell told the  meeting that tax assessment had  valued . their property at  $114,000 but that it had recently  been listed for sale at $209,000.  "I cannot see someone enhancing the value of property at  eleventh hour to increase its  value for sale," he said.  "Once we approve this  lease," he told council,  "we  have set a precedent. If we  refuse other owners, it becomes  a human rights issue."  Walter Hendrickson pointed  out that the property was no  longer for sale and stated emphatically that he had no intention of selling it.  Mayor Diane Strom told people at the meeting that the town  had been trespassing on Hendricksons' land since 1972 with  the town sewer line, and on Joe  Hunt's land as well. Maxwell  responded that she was promoting a trade-off and that if it  was done, a similar lease would  have to be granted to Mr. Hunt,  who had already stated his intentions of applying if the Hendricksons' lease was approved.  ��� A motion was put forth by  Alderman Norm Peterson to  approve the. lease application  and to amend the existing policy  against   granting   foreshore  leases, to provide for approval  in order to legalize long-term  existing uses of the foreshore. It  was passed with only Maxwell  opposed.  Council and committee at odds  In a letter to Sechelt  Revitilization Committee  members last week, Chairman  Bill Bailey recommended that  the committee be dissolved.  Having failed to convince  Sechelt Council to proceed with  the Specified Area By-law,  Bailey wrote that "there is little  more that can be accomplished  by this committee."  Sechelt Municipal Council  received a copy of the letter at  last   week's   meeting.  Mayor Bud Koch suggested  that council refuse Bailey's  resignation, but Alderman  Anne Langdon pointed out that  he wasn't resigning to Sechelt  Council, he was dissolving the  committee.  She read a portion of the letter which stated, "We not only  need the support of our mayor  and council, but as other communities that have gone through  the Revitilization Program have  found, it is necessary to have  their leadership as well" and  urged council to draft the  necessary by-law to show their  support.  Koch agreed that council  should meet with the committee  again to try and straighten out  some   mis-communications.  Debris in  harbour  by Ken Collins  Boat owner Pat Powers  wants industry to clean up its  act. "This stuff is the result of  industry," he said pointing to a  number of boomstick ends he  had collected.  Gibsons government dock  manager Larry Reardon noticed  the debris within the dock area  but stated, "The tide brings it in  but the tide also takes it back  out."  Gibsons municipal marina  staff stated they do not normally have a problem with debris  but HuTs Machine Shop owner  Carl Horner has a different  story.  "I'm in a back-eddy here,"  he said. "I push it out and it  just comes back in7 It would be  different if it was natural stuff  but it's not." Mr. Horner has a  : marine ways which is always being plugged by various types of  driftwood. He has to remove it  at his own cost.  Bob Kelly's garbage truck lost its brakes on Winn Road last Thursday morning and caused considerable damage to the home of Walt  and Inez Hendrickson on the waterfront. ���John Bumside photo  'Corrections  We have to set the record straight on a couple of errors  recorded recently.  A couple of weeks ago we attributed remarks made in a  presentation to Mr. Crego, now deceased, instead of to Colonel J.D. Dickson who accompanied the widow to council  and spoke on her behalf. We apologize to Mrs. Crego.  The error was occasioned by the fact that the reporter was  relatively new to the Gibsons beat and to the fact that Colonel  Dickson apparently felt no need to introduce himself.  The second error appeared in a headline which saw  teachers settling for 31 per cent wage increases instead, as the  story made clear, of a settlement of 3.1 per cent.  1 2.  Coast News, May 25,1987  r  Wharf unrest  The new regime is firmly esconced at the Gibsons wharf-  head and some of the long-time residents are not happy  with the changes which are being enforced.  Perhaps the loss of parking is going to be the biggest adjustment to make and it has ramifications which go  beyond the wharf itself. Vehicles not parked on the wharf  will be parked, perforce, on the already congested streets  of the landing area. Parking is always at a premium near  the head of the wharf and local businesses will no doubt  feel the effects of the change as surely as wharf users.  It is fair and accurate to say that Wharf Master Larry  Reardon is only trying to do his job as it has been outlined  for him.  It also may be fair and accurate to say that the root  cause of the problem is the abdication of the Town Council of its responsibilities. This paper has always been an advocate of retaining as much control over our affairs as is  possible. The Gibsons Town Council's imitation of Pontius Pilate in the matter of the caretaking of the wharf has  only served to ensure that the direction of the wharf is  taken out of the local hands and is no longer as capable of  flexibility of control by those who understand local conditions.  Salute to a hero  There have been millions of words of tribute paid to the  heroic perseverance and courage of Rick Hansen, all of  them justified.  It is only appropriate that we here at the Coast News  add our tribute to this authentic Canadian hero. He has  electrified much of the world with the daring of his undertaking and made us all marvel at the tenacity with which he  has pursued and attained his lofty goal.  What Hansen is trying to say to us, verbally and with  the tacit splendour of his physical effort, is that we must  not underestimate the human potential to achieve in the  handicapped person.  It is an argument he has portrayed with total persuasiveness and in its message of hope about untapped  potentials he may have an optimistic note to sound about  our entire embattled species, handicapped as it often seems  to be by greed and fear...we salute him with pride.  5 YEARS AGO  Over half of the student body of Elphinstone Secondary staged a half hour walk-out to protest the transferring of their principal, Barry Boulton, to Chatelech  Secondary School. Student Council President, Allan  Carroll said the demonstration was called to "bring out  public awareness that Mr. Bouton was being fired, (and  that) most of the school supported him and felt he  should not be fired."  Approval was given to the Roberts Creek Arts Festival  Society to proceed with plans for the Arts Festival to be  held in Cliff Gilker Park this summer.  Air Alps Limited who operate the Mountain Flying  School at Squamish have been given approval to  operate a Satelite Flying School at Gibsons/Sechelt Airport.  The nuisance by-law now in effect in Sechelt provides  stiff fines and a maximum six month jail term to property owners who allow soil or other materials to escape on  to neighbouring property.  10 YEARS AGO  Clark Steabner outlines projected plans for an Arts  Centre to Sechelt Council.  Norm Watson petitions Sechelt Council for Porpoise  Inlet Marsh to be declared a bird sanctuary.  The owners of the rig Gulf Master, Rivtow Limited, are  not enthused about recovering the sunken vessel which  went down in mysterious circumstances 10 years ago.  20 YEARS AGO  Gibsons/Port Mellon Centennial Swimming Pool  Committee has decided to drop the project. The public  has not shown sufficient interest.  Ferry traffic was so heavy after the holiday that ferries had to be switched from other runs to cope with  traffic to Langdale.  30 YEARS AGO  Sechelt Council appoints Ted Rayner as municipal  clerk effective June 1.  Tenders have been called for construction of the Mission Creek bridge which was destroyed previously by  rampaging flooding.  40 YEARS AGO  A.G. Graham accepts the invitation of Gibsons  Ratepayers to draw up a zoning master plan for the  area. This is a free government service.  William H. White, PhD, has accepted a position at  UBC as professor of Geology. Bill White grew up in  Roberts Creek and attended school at Elphinstone Bay  School high school in Gibsons Landing.

Logs are brought in by barge or log  tow. Hemlock specie are lifted out of the water by a TL6 line grapple crane, shown in the background of this picture. The dryland  sort utilizes three loaders to move and sort the logs in a large area  behind the dump site. The Hemlock is graded, cut to length and  scaled into standard, gang or pulp categories for domestic pur*  poses, and sorted for length and size for Export markets. After  processing the logs are stacked onto the self "tripping dump units  and wire tied into bundles. The bundles are released and slide down  the ramp into the water ready to be boomed up and towed to  coastal sawmills or taken to Vancouver harbour, where they are  loaded onto deep sea ships bound for world markets. In the  foreground of this picture a bundle of Hemlock logs has just hit the  water after its slide down the ramp.  ���Kent Sheridan photo  A pep talk  "You are," said Jake, "a  considerable stranger."  "I've been busy, Jake."  We were taking our tea on  Jake's sunlit porch. It was indeed my first visit of the Spring  to that pleasant spot overlooking the Gulf of Georgia.  The world of commerce was  going by out there, tugs and log  booms, self-dumping log  barges, and off in the distance  glinting in the late afternoon  sun, the Nanaimo ferry.  The world of commerce  bustling by, but far enough off  shore to free us from its bustle  and we could idly sip our tea  and watch the moving parts of a  West Coast not-quite still life.  "A man gets too busy to  remember his friends and he is  too busy altogether," snorted  Jake. "We are not always going  to be here, you know."  "I know that, Jake, I know  that," and for a moment  thoughts of mortality held still  our tongues.  ' 'So what great quest is it that  keeps you from your friends?"  asked Jake finally.  "Nothing that the world will  record as significant, I assure  you," said I. "Just dealing with  the necessary and the tedious."  "I recommend that you deal  with such matters with as much  dispatch as possible. It is spirit-  wearying to dally over the mundane."  "Believe me, Jake, I cannot  be accused of dallying, it's just  that sometimes the world does  not share one's sense of urgency  about the tidying up of the  tedious and the necessary  enough to speed up the processes."  "Are you done with the mundane for a while, then."  "God willing, Jake. That  which had to be done has been  done. There may be more joy in  the next round of activity."  "It's all very mysterious,"  grumbled Jake. "You apparently refuse to either visit your  friends or give them any decent  explanation of your absence."  "Perfection slips through my  fingers and away with fair  regularity, Jake."  "We are not talking about  perfection, young man, we are  talking about a wholesome  balance in one's activities that  enriches oneself and those with  whom one comes in contact."  "May I consider myself  reprimanded?"  "Testy, testy," said Jake.  "Neither your prolonged  absence nor your mundane importances have improved your  disposition."  "You are right and I am  sorry."  "We'll all get over it," said  Jake. "More tea?" and he  poured a second cup.  "I've been thinking," said  Jake, "about what this Coast  and this country really needs."  "Lay it on me, Jake. I stand  ready to welcome any and all  bona fide solutions."  "We need a refresher course  on the basics of democracy and  I reckon that in all the money  we manage to find for all the  consultants that find their way  up here we might find a consultant able to give a primer course  in elementary democratic practice, for so help me I find little  evidence that there is much  understanding of it either in the  electorate or in those practising  government, locally, provincial-  ly, or nationally.  "And it's not just this country. Reading between the lines,  it would appear to me that the  foreign policy of our neighbour  to the south is being decided  and implemented by people  who have never sought elected  office. I suppose if the foreign  policy of the leader of our self-  styled free world is not in  democratic hands we should be  understanding when our local  democrats allow too many decisions to be made in secret or by  staff members not accountable  to the people they serve.  "It is, in my view," said the  old timer, by now well wound  up, "nothing more or less than  a crisis for democracy and it's  high time we started getting  back to basics with a consultant  or two to feed us some easily  memorized simple rules to  govern our conduct until such a  time as understanding returns to  guide our actions."  "I remember one meeting I  was at a few years ago when a  local fish fanner drew a round  of general applause for observing that an expert was 'some son  of a bitch from out of town  with a set of slides'," I said. "I  suppose there are those who feel  the same way about consultants."  "There are good ones an^  there are charlatans," snorted  Jake, "and finding one from  the other is a part of a natural  weeding process no different in  kind from the weeding I do in  the garden.  "What I am talking about  here is an important issue which  begs attention. We have to idenr  tify the issue before we can  begin to select the means of atr  tending to it.-And I say the issue  is democracy and its state of  health. We have to start teaching the principles which dignify  good and democratic government and we have to teach them  in our schools and in seminars  to our elected officials. We have  to re-acquaint those who work  for government with the  primacy of the people's elected  representatives and then work  Please turn to page 18  Coast Lines  A memory of Rick Hansen  by Nancy MacLarty  In 1978 I was in St. John's,  Newfoundland, in my capacity  as a CBC Television producer.  We were doing a documentary  film which followed three Ottawa athletes at the Canadian  Games for the Physically  Disabled. These three young  people, one blind, one a  paraplegic and one a double  amputee, had been training for  over a year to compete for the  Ontario team in these national  games.  Training had been tough for  all of them, not only because of  the physical aspects but also  because of the barriers they faced from the able-bodied world.  In 1978, very few facilities  were available for the disabled  athlete and very few people considered the disabled as athletes.  Pool time, track time, weight  rooms, everything they needed  to ready themselves for the  games was hard to come by  because it had all been booked  by able bodied clubs and individuals.  Government grants, widely  available to other athletes, were  few and far between. Even the  games were called the "Disabled Games". They were  anything but.  At the opening ceremonies in  Canada Games Park in St.  John's, the teams paraded in.  Each province and territory was  represented. Blind team  members pushed their wheel-  chaired team mates. Team  mascots were held on high.  Mascots like the teddy bears  with only one leg or other stuffed animals with their eyes blindfolded or removed.  It was clear, to me at least,  that these were not people to be  pitied or catered to, these were  athletes...in every sense of the  word. Unfortunately, only a  few hundred people were in the  stands to cheer the entry of the  athletes. After all, these were  the "Disabled Games".  As the week progressed,  records were broken and personal bests were achieved, but  the sportcasters seldom reported  those facts on local newscasts.  After all, these were the 'Disabled Games', not 'real' athletic  endeavours.  If they had taken the time to  come out to watch they would  have seen totally blind athletes  sprinting down the track, unaided except by their coach's voice,  in the 100 yard dash. (You try  walking 100 yards blindfolded,  let alone running all out.)  They   would   have   seen  paraplegics hoist themselves out  of their chairs and drag  themselves into the pool to  swim the 400 metre butterfly or  breaststroke. (You try that with  your legs tied at the ankles and  see how far you get).  And they would have seen  amputees putting the shot or  throwing the discus in the cold  Newfoundland rain while  balancing on artificial limbs.  (You try that, teetering oh  stilts!). And their times and  distances were within split  seconds or centimetres of able-  bodied records.  At the closing banquet, it was  strange to see tables completely  set, but with not a chair in sight.  But it made sense. After all,  most of the guests had their own  chairs.  It was exciting, to watch the  wheelchair riders disco dance,  twirling on one wheel, doing  wheelies and rocking back and  forth with the beat, girlfriends  and boyfriends perched on their  laps. It was also dangerous for  onlookers. It's one thing to  have your foot stepped on at a  dance, quite another to be run  over.  And the T-shirts! Non-  sighted athletes with shirts proclaiming "Blind is Out of  Sight",   amputees   sporting  T-shirts that tell you "Amps  don't have a leg to stand on",  and those in wheelchairs  displaying the slogan "Wheelies  are Wonderful".  The reason I'm writing this is  because one of the wheelchair  athletes was Rick Hansen. He  was just beginning to make his  mark in sports., I guess he was  about 18 or 19, had long hair  and lost to my Ottawa  "wheelie" in the Gold Medal  ping pong match.  I'm sure he won in other  events, but I wasn't following  him, I was following the Ottawa  people. I wonder if B.C. sport-  scasters and writers reported his  wins? Probably not. After all  that was in 1978, seven years  before he started his "Man in  Motion" tour. Too bad it takes  a two year odyssey around the  world to raise our consciousness  about disabled people.  One thing is for sure. The  next "Disabled Games" will  have more than a few people in  the stands and disabled athletes  will be given grants and facility  time just like "real" athletes.  All thanks to the 1978 Canadian  Wheelchar Silver Medalist in  ping pong. Let's hope it lasts.  Thanks and welcome home  Rick. Coast News, May 25,1987  Editor:  ; Carol Oslie's opinion that the  moment of silence to honour  yfprkers killed or injured on the  job is 'subtle indoctrination into  union mentality' almost seems  unworthy of comment. I think,  however, that those sufficiently  uneducated on the matter to  think she may be right deserve  to hear another point of view.  ! In the first place, I take it that  the moment of silence honours  all workers killed, injured or  disabled, not just unionized  workers, so where she thinks the  'indoctrination into union mentality' comes from I do not  ltnow.  !;Our affluent western lifestyle  would not be possible without  the labour of millions of  workers, many of whom work  under dangerous conditions not  necessarily because of their own  disregard for safety but because  their work is inherently dangerous or because management,  to cut costs, disregards safety.  Many of the goods we buy  come from third world countries where the workers are virtually unprotected by unions or  progressive labour legislations.  As for the small acknowledgement having 'no bearing  on the education or welfare of  our children' I, as a parent,  would like to see more of the  facts of labour history taught in  schools so that my children are  forearmed when they enter the  working world.  In the 19th century factory  workers were toiling 16 hours a  day under unsafe and unhealthy  conditions and earning a pittance. Young children were  forced to work to make it possible for a family to survive.  ��� All this did not change because management magically  became   enlightened   as   the  decades went on! It changed  because the workers made it  change. People died in the  violence with which labour  unrest was put down in those  days, died so that we might have  the labour laws we now take for  granted, a 40 hour work week,  rninimum wage, safety standards in the work place.  We observe a moment of  silence on November 11 to  honour those who died in the  two world wars, fighting to  preserve our freedom. In the  past, workers died to gain  freedoms that most young people, through lack of education,  believe we've always had. I  would be happy to see these  labour movement martyrs included in the moment of silence,  along with those accidentally  killed and injured.  Another thing I've noticed  many people are not aware of,  is the fact that the presence of  labour unions raises working  conditions for non-union workers as well. If there is a strong  labour movement employers are  more likely to treat employees  with at least minimum standards of decency out of the fear  that, if their rights are  disregarded, the workers may  form a union. If the labour  movement is broken we will all  lose its protective influence. We  could slip back to 19th century  conditions, lose all we have  gained, if the present provincial  government has its way.  Many who now gripe about  unions will be sorry when  they're gone. Of course, one of  the first benefits to go will be  safety standards and there will,  sadly, be even more need for the  observance of a moment of  silence for those killed or injured!  Anne Miles  An important role  Editor:  f Two weeks ago, Gibsons  Building Supply had their 40th  anniversary. Judging from the  traffic jams in both parking  areas on Saturday and Sunday,  most of us were at the celebration. Judging from the mustard  I- saw in the corners of the  mouths of the kids under 90, all  carrying balloons, we had a  good time.  '" I expect most of us congratulated the management and  sfaff on their 40th anniversary  of doing business in our community, and thanked them for  the hospitality that weekend.  What of the thanks for 40 years  of community service?  As a past member of the Sea  Cavalcade committee I can say  that without Gibsons Building  Supply's participation both  financially and in manpower,  that event would be hard pressed to survive.  As co-ordinator of the  Cedars Pub Golf Tournament,  which sponsors junior golf in  our community, I know we  would have difficulty continuing without their support.  One only has to see the service awards on their office walls  to realize "Happy Birthday"  isn't enough, so thanks and  congratulations Gibsons  Building Supplies.

Mr. Earle Phillips of #49  Holdings Ltd. told the meeting  that once the necessary by-law is  in place he hopes to have the  construction completed by the  end of the year.  Planner Rob Buchan confirmed that Phillips' proposed  development conforms with the  officical Community Plan.  The committee agreed to  have Mr. Buchan proceed with  drafting a by-law which would  allow the necessary zoning  changes to the area between the  Twilight Theatre and the Gibsons Winter Club.  No public hearing will be held  on the change, since the zoning  is in accordance with the Community Plan, and other public  hearings for similar zoning  changes in that area showed no  adverse reactions from, the  public.  10th Annual Flea Market  At The Gibsons Winter  Sutttify Jm$ 7  10 sm - $ pm  Admission 50*  Tables $15.00  886-7801  -". _^__>__-.

At last  week's meeting of the planning  committee council discussed recent complaints made by residents in the Georgia Beach ar*ea.  Mayor Diane Strom presented two letters which had  been sent to council after Colonel Dickson's presentation on  May 5 when he asked council to  install speed bumps at Georgia  Beach and close the park between midnight and 8 am, and  threatened legal action against  the town if they didn't act  promptly. Both letters were  from residents in the area who  were opposed to any such action.  Anne Gurney wrote, "He  (Colonel Dickson) is not representing me. I am not interested in taking action if the  village doesn't solve the noise  from the beach. I do not want  speed bumps, gates or night  closure of the park."  Locating a light at the  Georgia Drive forks and police  patrols were suggested by David  and Inge Harrison as a method  of controlling activity. Council  asked the Public Works Foreman to investigate the possibility of a light and will be requesting that police increase  their patrol of all beaches and  parks.  Mayor Strom told the committee that she had been called  by Colonel Dickson at 11:30 on  Friday night about a beach party taking place. She decided to  investigate the situation, and  after calling the RCMP, went  down there herself. Strom  described how she stopped at  several locations along the bluff  and near Georgia Beach and  heard no noise.

Alderman Bob Maxwell had  a different version of the party  that took place at Georgia  Beach that night. He told the  committee that he had talked to  a member of the RCMP and  that there were 15 cases of liquor at the party. Two people,  he said, were arrested for.  resisting arrest and one was  charged with providing liquor  to minors.  Strom said that she was  aware that the police had been  there earlier in the evening but  had been told that there were  only a couple of cases of beer:  seized.  Sergeant Jim Bessant of the  Gibsons detachment told the  Coast  News that  on Friday  night, May 15, officers had seized two and a half cases of beer  and a half bottle of vodka from  a party at Georgia Beach. No  arrests were made. He attributed the increased partying activity throughout the Gibsons  area to the fact that it was the  beginning of the first long  weekend of summer and graduation was approaching. "I  think its been blown out of proportion," he stated.  Fuji FilimSgecial  60  a roll  M2 exposure roll of 135  _*__*��  When you leave your colour film for  processing & printing.

Those who missed with the ball quite often scored a direct hit with the hand!  ���Fran Bumside photo  Roberts    Creek  DreeK hears park report  7 by Jeanie Parker, 885-2163  Parks were the main topic of  discussion at last Wednesday's  Community Association meeting and for once there was a  moderately good turnout.  Enough, in fact, to hold the  elections postponed from the  .annual meeting in March when  nobody showed up.  7 Agreeing to stay in office  were: Diana Zornes, Chairperson; Christine Luster, Vice-  ���Chairperson; Jamie Davidson,  Secretary; Jake Chaban,  Treasurer; and Vicky Dobbyn,  Director. The other Directors  are Yvonne Mounsey and  Dorothy Boragno. All deserve a  vote of thanks for their continuing service to the community.  '. Regional Director Brett  McGillivray explained that  Roberts Creek would receive  $10,000 from the West Howe  Sound Recreation Commission  this year to develop playing  fields in Cliff Gilker Park. The  Settlement Plan makes provision for them and a relatively  flat area next to the playground  has been cleared two or three  times for such a purpose.  It is hoped that two ballfields  and a soccer pitch can be accomodated as they are greatly  needed.  In answer to concerns about  the neglect of Cliff Gilker Park,  Brett stated that more money is  being allocated for maintenance  and improvements, including  contracting for a park superintends. The ballfields would  be maintained out of the  Recreation Commission's  budget.  ; Brett reported that another  priority has been accomplished  with the purchase of Jack  Warn's piece of property at the  mouth of Roberts Creek. The  three-quarters of an acre from  the bridge down has traditionally been used for Roberts Creek  Daze and beach and water access, and can now be developed  as the community desires. A  stand-pipe for fresh water has  already been installed and other  suggestions are welcome.  Another referendum for dog  control will be held in  September. Gibsons and Sechelt  are included in the new proposal  so it would be a more  economical scheme than the one  offered last year.  The turning lanes under construction at the corner of Hall  Road and Highway 101 will  help alleviate a dangerous situation but they will probably cut  down on the parking for the  Community Hall and Masonic  Hall. The piece of land  dedicated from the subdivision  behind the hall will prove  beneficial in this regard.  ���  Thanks to the vigilance of the  local Forestry Committee, most  of the logging traffic that has  been using Lockyer Road will  soon be diverted to B & K Logging Road. The committee is also  lobbying for more control by  the regional district in how the  area is to be logged to prevent a  large-scale scalping of the  mountain above Roberts Creek.  Lastly, Brett reported that the  purchase of 100 acres near Port  Mellon for a tank farm should  give weight to the agitation to  get the propane tanks out of  Roberts Creek. There is still  three years left on the lease.  In other association-business,  it was reported that construction on the addition to the  library had started that day. A  major concern had been encroachment on the "plinth"  behind the post office but it  seems it can be left in place after  all and will be sandblasted afterward to spruce it up.  Thanks were given to Sue  Shepherd and the Roberts  Creek Brownies and Guides for  their work planting bulbs and  summers.flowers in front of the  community Hall.  SPRING DANCE  The Roberts Creek Parents  Auxiliary cordially invites  everybody to attend the Spring  Hansen tally  Sechelt and Gibsons have raised a total of over $20,000  toward the Man in Motion fund.

Tax  question  During question period in the  House of Commons Mary Collins, Member of Parliament for  Capilano, asked the Minister of  National Revenue, the Honourable Elmer MacKay, about the  refundable sales tax credit announced by the government last  year. This tax credit for low-  income Canadians is equal to  $50 per adult and $25 per child.  In order to receive this credit  eligible individuals must file a  tax return this year. In her question to the minister, Mrs. Collins expressed concern that  many Canadians who are eligible for the credit do not have  enough income to be taxable  and do not file income tax  returns.  In his reply the minister indicated he would be issuing a  press release in the near future  reminding Canadians of this  progressive tax measure. The  minister added that eligible  Canadians who do not file a tax  return this year will still be able  to receive this benefits for the  1986 tax year during the next  two years.

RE.D ROBINSON'S 80TH  Well known logging operator  and father of Ron Robinson of  West Sechelt, Red Robinson of  Middlepoint Logging Company  celebrated his 80th birthday.  The party in his honour was  held at his daughter's home in  Coquitlam on May 18.

Red and his wife Jean reside  in North Burnaby, both are  fondly remembered by many  people here. Happy Birthday  Red!  B&PWC  It was election night for the  Sunshine Coast Business and  Professional Women's Club on  Tuesday, May 19.  Past President Florence Tait  presented the slate of officers.  Elected were: President, Audrey  Broughton; First Vice-President, Jan Kennedy; Second  Vice-President, Margaret  Nielsen; Recording Secretary,  Donna Perry; Corresponding  Secretary, Frances Travis;  Treasurer, Carolyn Kirk. Also  serving on the executive will be  immediate past president, Gwen  Robinson.  President Audrey Broughton  and chairman of the membership committee, Aleta Giroux  inducted eight members into the  club: Linda Brook, Susan Gibson, Dorothy Barbour, Irene  Haar, Jessie Morrison, Lorraine Laidman, Elia McNutt  and a returning member, Max-  ine Nelson.  Fran Ovens presented the  three speakers for the evening,  all members of the club who  gave a rundown on their professions, chosen this week as it is  "Women In Business Week".  Helen Phillips, the first  speaker, has been an Avon  representative for 17 years and  found it very inspiring as she  learned she could earn her own  money and still have time to  spend with her growing family.  It also gave her self esteem, self  confidence, and a way to meet  new friends.  Helen O'Keefe started in the  hospitality business working 10  years for the airlines in Ireland.  This was a big help as her husband Brendon and herself owned a big hotel in Ireland with 36  rooms, 2 restaurants, two bars  and a meeting room for 1400.  They made the big step and sold  the business, moved to Canada  and bought the Driftwood  Motel in 1983.  Jan Kennedy, nursing supervisor at St. Mary's Hospital,  finds that working in a small  hospital one gets to work in so  many different areas. It is a  career than never has a dull moment. Some things have" to-be  done that are not that thrilling  but others more than make up  for them. She recommended a  nursing career for both males  and females.  The Provincial Spring Conference for B.C. was held on  May 22 at the International  Plaza   Hotel   in   North  Van  couver. Six members attended  from here.  The Bursary Committee  reported that there would be  two bursaries for the high  school students of $500 each  and one for a mature student  for the same amount.  The next meeting will be on  June 16 at Jan Kennedy's home  with a Hawaiian theme. This is  a picnic meeting.  CORNISH REVIVAL  Bill Walkey, who comes from  Cornwall, England, decided to  learn Cornish. When he wrote  for his papers on a correspondence course they wrote  back and told him someone else  in B.C. had taken the same  course, and maybe he would  run into him sometime. That  was not hard to do, for it was  Dave, Short in Gibsons.  concert Success  The Teen Special show put  on by Nikki Weber and performed by the young people in  the area was a very exciting  evening. There was < a good  crowd at Greenecourt Hall on  Friday, May 22 to enjoy the  evening and give financial support to the Cystic Fibrosis  Society.  Sandy Hook Saga  Executive elected  by John Johnson  Sandy Hook Property  Owners' Association held its annual general meeting at St.  Hilda's Hall on May 16.

Further development of our  parks was recommended. There  were even rumours about a Sandy Hook flag, song, tennis  court, and additional equipment for the children's park.  A large area of our lower  park has been landscaped by  members of the association, and  particular thanks go to Eileen  and Jack Jorgens for the many  hours they have spent in this  regard. A recent addition was  VACMAN  VACUUMS  Dolphin Mini Mali, Sechelt  ��� REPAIRS TO MOST  MACHINES  ��� WE TAKE TRADES  ��� SHOP VACS IN STOCK  Parts & Supplies For Most Makes  the planting of a five foot oak  tree donated by Mrs. Pat Bar-  jiett following her late  husband's wishes.  Canada geese have even  discovered the beauty and attractiveness of Sandy Hook and  in their own way are trying to  promote abundant growth on  the lawns adjacent to the beach!  We now have a nature trail  through our lower park area  which joins "Millers Walk"  giving us a three quarter mile  look at forest fauna.

Our Sechelt delegates were in  favour of an amendment to the  Provincial Constitution, which  would have limited the terms of  office of any member of the  Provincial Executive to three  years. A two thirds majority  was required and the proposed  amendment was lost by five  votes.  The intent, of course, was to  prevent the same executive with  the same ideas remaining in office indefinitely. The present  slate of officers consists of:  Evelyn Olson, President; John  Davis, First Vice-President; and  Erling Storgaard, Second Vice-  President.  All were elected by acclamation. It should be noted that  Adele de Lange stepped down  as second vice-president for personal reasons but will retain the  chairmanship of the Sunshine  Coast Regional Council which  entails a position on the provincial board.  The 1988 convention will be  held at Smithers, B.C.  THE69ERS  Looks like your singing  group is going to have a busy  month in June. At the present  time there are six engagements  booked for the month, at  various functions stretching  from Roberts Creek to the  Welcome Beach Hall.  Practices will continue  throughout the month of June  and then a summer recess will  be in order to catch our collective breaths.  Bill Scott has agreed to be  Liaison Officer for the group  and enquiries should be directed  to him regarding bookings, etc.  ELDERHOSTEL  On June 3 at 6 pm, in our  hall, the Sechelt Seniors Branch  69 will be hosting a buffet supper for the members of Elderhostel and their hosts attending  classes at Capilano College that  week.

Jack did  ���this work as a volunteer and  * spent many hours on the ac-  T<counts of the branch. When the  * executive insisted that he accept  I "some salary, he would only take  a nominal $1 a year.  Jack's colleagues at the Port  Mellon pulp mill remember him  with respect and affection for  his generous nature and consideration for others.  He grew up in Walsh, Alberta, and worked as a telegrapher  for the CP Railway until he  qualified as an industrial accountant by correspondence  through Medicine Hat College.  He had been employed by Port  Mellon since 1976.  Jack leaves four grown  daughters; a brother Roy;  sisters Ivy and Margaret; and  his father Rudolph, who lives in  Medicine Hat.  Jack was just a month past  his 50th birthday when he passed away.  HEMOCHROMATOSIS  The last week of May is  public awareness week for the  disease hemochromatosis.  Primarily, it is a hereditary  condition which can lead to  diabetes, arthritis, heart disease,  and other problems if not  treated soon enough.  Hemochromatosis puts those  suffering its effects at hazard.  The hazard increases the longer  Lome and Amy Blain were joined by four generations of family and many friends at the celebration of  their golden wedding anniversary at the Sunshine Coast Golf and Country Club last weekend.  ���Finn Bumside photo  Lome and Amy Blain mark  L  The former mayor of Gibsons, Lome Blain and his wife  Amy were joined by 160 family  and friends on their golden wedding anniversary at the Sunshine Coast Golf and Country  Club on Saturday, May 23. The  celebrants enjoyed a banquet  catered by Dawn Hanson and  Betty Cochrane. The dance  which followed went into the  early morning hours as old  timers and young people danced  the night away.  On Sunday, May 24, the  weekend ended nicely with a  'Blain Buffet' at Amy and  Lome's home on Gower Point  Road in Gibsons. All those who  had attended the previous evening's celebrations and spent the  night at the Sunshine Lodge  stopped by to spend a few quiet  hours reminiscing.  Amy and Lome's children,  grandchildren and great grandson Joshua Stewardson were all  there to join in the celebration.  People from as far away as  Essex, England; Ogden, Utah  and Pleasanton, California  were in town to join the  delighted couple in their special  weekend.  But the weekend was really  only the culmination of a happiness that started 50 years ago  on May 22, their actually anniversary date.  Amy and Lome were married  May 22, 1937, in Christ Church  Cathedral in downtown Vancouver. A story printed in the  Vancouver Sun which covered  the event read, "When leaving  50 years  for a wedding trip to the near  south..." What the story really  meant was the young couple  spent their honeymoon at the  Georgia Hotel before leaving on  the Union Steamship vessel .SIS'  Capilano the next day for Port  Mellon. They arrived that evening in the mill town community  and moved into their new  home, a tent on the Port Mellon  Indian Reserve where they lived  for the next six months.  Over the past 50 years the  well known Gibsons couple  have moved 48 times and lived  in places like Kimberley,  Nelson, Victoria, Vancouver,  Gibsons,   Hopkins   Landing,  Port Mellon, Burnaby and  several of them several times  over. Lome remarked, "A lot  of landlords would sure like to  know where we are now!" ;  In that time they raised five  children and Lome Blain eventually became Mayor of Gibsons after retiring as Langdale  Terminal Agent for B.C. Ferries.  He is now age 74, a part-time  resident of the Sunshine Golf  and Country Club where he  likes to prove his golfing skills  while Amy spends her time  playing a mean game of bridge  and knitting sweaters for her  large and growing family.  Gardening notes  by Marguerite  There are a multitude of  packets of seeds available but  knowledgeable gardeners and  also beginners have a trial and  error stage, and sometimes the  seed doesn't produce which is  disappointing and expensive. A  packet can have from 20 to 500  plants, so exchange and share  with a friend. Once opened,  keep them under ideal conditions, in a cool, dark place, approximately 40 degrees, in clean  glass jars or tins with tightly  sealed lids. Be sure to remember  to label them.  Chrysanthemums can be  planted out now. Knock them  DRIZZLE ENTERPRISES  is taking orders now for  PILE DRIVIN8  and  DOCK CONSTRUCTION  Contracts  for the Summer Season  The Drizzle Enterprises Barge  will be moving to the Sechelt Inlet  area very soon  DRIZZLE ENTERPRISES  Marine Services  1066 Hwy 101 (at Payne Rd.), Gibsons  885-5401  out of pots and immerse them  in a bucket of weak insecticide  before planting. Insert the canes  at 18 inch intervals and plant  them tied to canes which will encourage flowering shoots to be  produced. Pinch out growing  tip if you want lots of flowers.  Remove faded blooms from  rhododenrons carefully but  leave next years buds  underneath.  Strawberries will be flowering  and setting. A blanket of straw  or spoiled hay will keep fruit  clean, assist ripening and keep  roots moist.  For children this year we are  having another largest sunflower contest for ages 3 to 12.  The Pacific Giant seed does the  best job and they should go in  now in a nice, rich, composted  soil. Keep it well watered.  Perhaps Grandpa can supervise  and help you get started. All  children from Langdale to  Roberts Creek can participate.  Get busy kids!  Pioneer Park has been  planted, and we hope visitors,  residents, and tourists will enjoy  it.  "NATIONAL REAL-  ESTATE SERVICE  Century West Realty Ltd.  of Sechelt is pleased to announce that Mr. Bill Turner  has joined their Sales Staff.

The representatives here for  the Canadian Hemochromatosis Society are Norm and Kay  Belanger of Port Mellon. They  will be in the Sunnycrest Mall  on May 28 and again on May 30  (this Thursday and Saturday)  from 10 to 4 pm to give out information of the signs of the  disease and its treatment.  "I'm one of the lucky ones,"  said Norm, "I got treatment  started in time. Many aren't so  lucky."  BIKE-A-THON  A bike-a-thon for youngsters  will be held June 14. Elementary and secondary students can  ride miles for money that day.  The young folk do the miles  and the money which they collect through pledges will go to  help cure diabetes.  Watch for the big ad in next  week's paper to see what the  details of the bike-a-thon are.  But a hint or two beforehand.  Entrants can get pledge forms at  the local stores that are sponsoring this event. Look for the  posters that will be in those  stores next week.  Start looking for folk to  sponsor you on the bike-a-thon.  It will be fun for you and it will  help a good cause, the Charles  H. Best Foundation, in its  search for a cure for diabetes.  Bike-a-thons will be held all  over B.C. on the same day, and  there's a provincial prize of  $1000 to the rider who clocks  the most miles.  The location is Porpoise Bay  Park and the route is from there  to Tillicum Bay Marina turn-off  and back, a distance of five  miles. Register on June 14, with  your pledge form filled out, between 8 and 10 am.  Lots of prizes from local merchants, kids, and pop and hot  dogs as well.  Adults are urged to attend a  diabetics' picnic the same day at  Porpoise Bay Park. Come at  registration time to show support of the young riders.

KIDS ARE GREAT  7     The  children   of the  little  ;  school in Halfmoon Bay were  very proud on Friday to make a  presentation to the Rick Hansen  fund. They have been collecting  pennies for weeks now and  managed to reach a total of approximately $106. The presentation was made as a climax to the  fun day of sports at the school.  Well done kids!  Another group of young people who are to be commended  are the teenage group who took  part in the Teens 87 Variety  Show at Greenecourt on Friday  night. They will be delighted to  learn that they raised just over  $400 for the Cystic Fibrosis  Foundation.  At the grand finale there were  25 good looking young folks on  stage and each one did really  well. Space does not permit  naming them all but special  mention must be made of Jennifer Copping who came back  to the Peninsula to make a guest  appearance and did a beautiful  job of her singing and dance  routines. It was a joy to watch  her.  There was also a young  fellow worthy of the great applause he received by a most appreciative audience. Chris  Upsdell endeared himself to  young and old alike as Master  of Ceremonies with his quick  wit and delightful presentation  of all the artists.  Alva Dinn, chairman of the  local branch of the Cystic  Fibrosis Foundation for this  area, graciously expressed  thanks to all the performers and  helpers, to the audience who  had supported the cause and to  Nikki Weber who had produced  the whole affair. Personally, I  am sorry for all of you who  missed a great night. It seems a  pity that such a show should only be for one night.  <j  t '������  ��(��)  A BAG  Wed  27th  Thurs 28th  Proceeds aid Food Bank  W^ THRIFTY'S  >"-  886-2488  above Ken's Lucky Dollar  Pender Harbour  Fire Protection District  FIRE PERMITS  April 15 to Oct. 31/87  All Permits $2  Available at  Oak Tree Market  Madeira Park. 883-2411  Support ambulance  by Joan Wilson, 883-9606  May's Pender Persons are  always alert to an emergency.  Just call 885-5191, and our well-  trained ambulance volunteers  will be on the scene in a few  short moments to administer  first aid to an accident victim,  transport an elderly patient to  St. Mary's, or to rush you to  medical help when a heart attack strikes.  Our ambulance service is run  by volunteers who receive excellent training, and give their  days and nights to help others.  The ambulance has only been in  the Harbour since 1978, but we  have a dedicated crew of attendants and drivers under Dennis  Gamble. We want you all to  know that we appreciate what  you do for our community!  Everyone in Pender Harbour  rests a little easier knowing that  we have our own ambulance in  Madeira Park. But how long  will it remain there? The recent  moves toward privatization by  the provincial government  threaten our ambulance system.  If the system is sold into  private hands, there will be no  more ambulance here, and, one  day, someone will die because  medical help was too far away.  Older people will be discouraged from moving to their retirement homes in Garden Bay or  Francis Peninsula because there  is no ambulance service.  If you are concerned about  this, please write your MLA and  tell him. Sign one of the petitions that Dennis Gamble has  around the Harbour. Let's do  something to try and save our  ambulance before it's too late!  BICYCLE RODEO  Sixty-one bikers took part in  the RCMP Bicycle Rodeo at the  community hall grounds on  May 9. It was a hot afternoon  as the kids lined up to have their  bicycles inspected and to go  through a short course which  tested their skills. Thanks to all  the parents who helped with the  lineup and checking, to the IGA  for drinks, Pender Harbour  Cafe for hot dogs, and Frances  for all those ice creams. Thanks  also to Pacifica Pharmacy,  MacLeods, Trail Bay Sports,  Garden Bay Marine, Pender  Harbour Diesel, June Maynafd,  Diane Gamble, the RCMP and  Pender Harbour Realty for that  fast minute photocopying!  All 61 entrants received a flag  for their bikes.

Sunny is always among  the first to give her help with  any school or community function.

The last production was a great success, so  come up and see what our  young people, under the direction of Joe Harrison, have been  working on the last few months.  MAY DAY  This year's May Day  festivities were better than ever!  The sun shone on our parade,  and the afternoon's activities  were great fun for everyone.  Thanks to everyone who helped  to make May Day a success.  HOW TO SUCCEED  Grads of Pender Harbour  Secondary have continued to do  well during their first year in  college. Douglas Jardine, President of Capilano College,  recently visited Pender Harbour  Secondary and reported that all  the students from our school are  doing as well or better in  Capilano College as they did in  Grade 12.  Although college instructors  often complain about the  students' level of English,  Pender Harbour students  received slightly higher grades  (B plus to A minus) than they  received in Grade 12; Earlier in  the year, similar success by one  of our students was reported by  an official of Simon Fraser.  Grads from the Harbour DO  succeed in post-secondary  education, and we're proud of  them all!  DON'T FORGET  Concert by the world-famous  Naden Band on May 27, 2:15 at  Pender Harbour Secondary.

WHALE WATCHERS  Thanks to Georgina Sager in  Sears, I and my guests saw the  grey whales who visited Trail  Bay   last   weekend.   These  whales, who once used the  Georgia Strait as a passage  north, were killed off to such an  extent that they disappeared  from our shores. Slowly they  seem to be feeling their way  back. Just maybe, in a few years  time, we can use these sightings  as one more tourist attraction.  READING CENTRE  Moms and Tots Story Hour  is on Friday, June 5, 10:30 am  until 11:30 am. Mom can have  tea or coffee, browse in the  library and talk to other moms  while their little ones are being  read to by the competent  volunteers.  Afterwards, the children are  given milk and cookies. This is  at the Wilson Creek Hall, where  Laurel meets Davis Bay Road.  Starting on June 5 and  hopefully every following  Saturday, there will be a display  of crafts or art in the hall while  the library (reading, centre) is  open.

It was several years ago and a  friend who works for an Interior newspaper was in Victoria  covering the fall session of the  legislature for his paper. Jim  phoned to ask if he could come  over for the Thanksgiving  weekend and bring a friend.  The friend, it transpired, was  one of Premier Bennett's press  secretaries. Oh oh, I thought,  we'd better steer clear of  politics, as I guessed, correctly  as it turned out, that Jim had  carefully neglected to give her  any background about us.  Joanna was the perfect guest,  warm and friendly, appreciative  without being fulsome and  without fuss easily slipping into  the vacant slot- of daughter in  the family.  It wasn't until Thanksgiving  . supper that the cat was let out  of the bag. I had bought a utility turkey, nothing wrong with it  except that it was missing a  wing. Frank of course couldn't  resist asking which wing was  missing and then commenting,  Custom Boat Tops  3 Pay Service (max) With Appointment  Refits -All Repairs  Windows Replaced, etc.  COMPLETE  FOAM SHOP  FIBERGLASS  SUPPLIES  PLEXIGLAS  Your compile upholstery eantre  Boat Hauling  Motor Carrier Licenced & Insured  W.W.

Amid the laughter I caught  the look on Joanna's face as the  horrible truth dawned.on her,  she'd been inveigled into spending Thanksgiving among the  NDP!  She recovered quickly and  continued to enjoy her dinner  even if it was a left wing turkey.  I hope she did not give Jim the  satisfaction of telling her he  thought she needed a little  education!  Is anyone in Victoria willing  to befriend Mr. Parker, I  wonder, he desperately needs to  widen his social contacts.  It doesn't make sense to shut  ourselves into fortresses of  political purity, or make any  other sort, national, ethnic,  religious or denominational, for  that matter.  5______5_3E  5_E  FOR  RENT  Large vacant store,  main area of Sechelt,  for immediate rent  Approx. 2500 sq. ft.  $850 per month  Some restrictions apply  -5315  In an attempt to reduce the  number of industrial accidents  involving power lines, B.C.  Hydro is reminding everyone  concerned of the dangers.  There have been several incidents this year when cranes  and pumper trucks contacted  overhead lines. As a result  operators were injured and  Hydro customers have been left  without power.  Machinery striking lines is  not the only problem. In one  case, workmen installing a gutter on a building allowed it to  touch an energized conductor.  One of the men fell, mjuring his  back as well as suffering severe  burns to his hand.  "Incidents like this happen  when people neglect accepted  safety procedures and Workers'  Compensation Board regulations," says Wayne Turner,  District Manager, Sechelt.  Whenever there is a possibility of equipment coming within  10 feet of an overhead conductor, the regulations specify that  the contractor find out the  voltage and the minimum  clearance required and then  maintain that safety margin.  If the clearance cannot be  maintained because of work circumstances, Hydro must be  notified before work starts.  Hydro crews can then de-  energize the line, re-route it or  take steps to guard against contact.  "In the event of machinery  contacting a power line, the  operator should stay in or on  the vehicle, warn others to keep  away and have somebody call  Hydro immediately," says  Turner.

Coast News, May 25,1987  A golden wedding anniversary tea for Don and Betty McCallum  was held in Gibsons last Sunday. The McCallums came to the Gibsons area in 1945 and soon after built a summer home in Hopkins  Landing where they have resided permanently since 1974. Congratulations to Don and Betty. ���Kent Sheridan photo  At Gibsons Council  Trees protected  Gibsons Planning Committee  passed a policy statement last  week which will ensure that  trees located in parks throughout the town "will only be  removed or topped when they  are a hazard to safety or diseased or by an order in council."  In discussion of the policy,  town administrator Lorraine  Goddard pointed out that when  trees are in a park and their  limbs overhang private property, this does not prevent the  property owner from trimming  the offending branches.  Public Works foreman Bob  Marchand cautioned council  that the policy was still open to  interpretation and that it will  always be a controversial matter. He cited the example of  trees recently topped at Atley  and Pebbles Parks where, he  said, "I wouldn't have considered those trees a safety  hazard so I couldn't have topped them."  Having passed the policy  statement, council went on to  deal with the issue of tree topping in Pebbles Park. This project halted when local residents  protested the topping of two  trees which overhung property  belonging to Joy Maxwell. Mrs.  Maxwell had received permis  sion from the town to have the  trees topped at her expense,  however when neighbours saw  what was happening, they protested to Mayor Diane Strom  who ordered the operation stopped until it could be considered  further.  Marchand asked council, in  light of the new policy, what  their wishes were regarding the  remaining tree which Mrs. Maxwell wanted topped. Alderman  Bob Maxwell, husband of the  applicant, removed himself  from council table during the  discussion.  Council passed the motion  made by Alderman Norm  Peterson that the remaining tree  be topped for aesthetic and  safety reasons, because the  limbs were coming too near the  hydro lines.  Alderman Maxwell expressed  concern on his wife's behalf and  that the cost of the project  might be increased due to the  delay, and Marchand agreed to  look into the possibility that  hydro would pay for the topping if the 'branches were interfering with hydro lines.  Peterson then introduced  another motion committing the  town to pay any increase in the  cost which was due to the delay.  Varied agenda  Gibsons Council has received  several requests to use the old  firehall for various functions,  but Building Inspector Ralph  Jones warned aldermen at last  week's council meeting that the  hall, as it is now, is a fire trap.  He explained that there is only  one entrance to the building and  council agreed to notify the interested groups that the building  will be unavailable.  The Gibsons Landing  Theatre Project has already arranged to have their general  meeting in the building but  council will be offering them the  Marine Room as an alternative  location.  The dog control problem will  soon be taken care of from the  southern boundary of Sechelt  through to Port Mellon. Alderman Norm Peterson told council that the regional district has  accepted Gibsons bid to handle  dog control in that area and  Sechelt Council is also considering contracting Gibsons to  cover the district municipality.  Nasty smells from the Gibsons sewage treatment plant  continue to plague nearby  residents. In a letter received at  a council meeting, Mr. and Mrs.  B. Willoughby wrote that they  had been patient with the odor  problem for six years but their  patience is running thin. The  Willoughbys stated that Gibsons has three options: move  the plant out of the residential  neighbourhood; move the residents; or build an odor-free  plant.  Council will be sending a letter assuring them that "we are  still working on a solution and  hope in the near future that  there will be far less odor than  there is now".

Noted musicians in  bistro atmosphere  On May 30, the Arts Centre  in Sechelt will be transformed  into an intimate bistro. Small  tables, candles and a c6ffee  house menu will create a pleasant backdrop for a quartet of  talented musicians who have all  been enjoyed locally in other  contexts.  Signi Murgatroyd (vocals),  Ken Dalgleish (keyboard),  Michael Dunn (guitar), and Roy  Styffe (sax) will be presenting an  evening of diverse musical  styles. We asked Ken to describe  the upcoming event:  "What attracts me to playing  music in the Arts Centre is the  lack of constraint placed on the  performer. People expect to be  stimulated with something different and exciting. We can do  things that musicians couldn't  do at a dance, in a pub, or at  any of the many functions  where musicans are hired to fill  some particular bill.  "We will be doing several of  my compositions, some with  rather complex choral backgrounds with help from friends  in Centennial Singers and Jean  Pierre Leblanc on flute.  "I like a span a lot of territory in an evening so we will  also   be   doing   some   Ralph  Towner and Pat Methany jazz  tunes back to back with Patsy  Cline.  "Signi's singing is always  wonderful...her pitch and tone  are so true and she can handle  some really diverse styles from  Billie Holliday to Jacques Brel  to Carlos Jobim. Roy Styffe,  the sax player, is pure honey.  This young man from Toronto  sounds like a Stan Getz or Paul  Desmond.  "Mike and I have played  together for over 10 years. We  seem to think together! Mike is  from the 'Django-swing school'  with a drum-like rythmic perfection. He has been delving into African music lately and we  will feature him on kora, a  Senegalese instrument which  people will remember seeing at  his show last December., *.  "I'm equally* excited to  discover what will happen on  May 30. The music is very im-  provisational, meaning It will be  created on the spot and I think a  treat is in store for those who  will be there to hear it happen."  This exciting event starts at 8  pm and tickets are $5 available  at the Arts Centre, The Bookstore, Seaview Market, and  Hunter Gallery. Seating is  limited so get your tickets early!

There  seemed to be some basic antipathy between us that liquor  brought to the surface. But we  had the shake claim to finish.  When that was done, I had  every intention of parting company with him for good. In the  meantime, wherever possible, I  simply avoided drinking with  Mike. There was no trouble on  the job but I sought more congenial company on weekends.  While I was away, Mike  began dropping around the  homestead to visit my mother  and the unthinkable happened.  They became romantically involved and Mike asked my  mother to marry him. To say I  was displeased with the situation would be putting it mildly.  Admittedly, I was a bit over-  protective towards my mother  but there was more to it than  that. I knew too well about  Mike's unstable tendencies.  Wrongly or not, I resolved to  try and stop the union.  The upshot was that Mike  and I had a savage fight that  began with him trying to pull a  gun on me. I jumped him  before he got to the weapon and  threw him bodily out of the  house. "Don't ever come back  you bloody lunatic!" I shouted.  Then I took his rifle outside and  smashed it to pieces over a rock.  But violence solves nothing  and you can't stop the inevitable.  Unbelievably perhaps, it all  blew over. Mike and I buried  the hatchet and continued  working the shake claim. He  and my mother resumed their  courtship. I was still ridden with  misgivings. "Are you sure this is  what you really want?" I asked  her one night when Mike wasn't  around.  "I love him," she said. "He's  gentle with me and Martin and  the cats. It's you he can't get  along with. I'm getting old, you  know. This may be my last  chance. I can control him but  you must let me live my own  life."  "All right," I said, "if you're  absolutely certain, I'll get out of  the way. There's no future for  me in this country, anyhow."  So Mike and I toted out the  last of the shakes. Then I packed my gear and set out in search  of new directions.  Before I left, Mike and I had  a sober talk. He had stopped  drinking and promised to treat  my mother and brother right.  Maybe I believed him because I  wanted to. I was 25 years old  and going nowhere fast. It was  long past time to cut the apron  strings.  When I left the Port Mellon  area, there was a great sense of  freedom. I spend several months working at the Woodfibre  pulp mill, further up the Sound.  Then, my other brother, Chris  suggested I come north to  Kitimat, get a job at the smelter  and learn a proper trade.  Kitimat was being touted as a  sort of promised land in the 50's  and Chris had certainly done  well there. I flew north gladly,  eager for fresh experiences. For  the next 18 months, I prowled  the smoky corridors of Alcan's  inferno; drank frequently in  Coley Hall's enormous beer  parlour; fell in love with a couple of incompatible women;  drew cartoons for the  Steelworkers' Union and, very  tentatively, began to write.  During this same period, my  mother married Mike Marno,  sold the Port Mellon property  for a tidy sum and moved to  Gibsons. During my exile, she  wrote me many letters. They  were full of positive reports  about how well things were going; how Mike had a steady job  with the Public Works Department; how she and he were  making   a   beautiful   garden  around the big house they had  bought in mid-Gibsons; how  well my brother Marty was doing in school. I wished them all  the best. Perhaps my departure  had done the trick. ;  To be continued  Roberts Creek  LEGION ST  "The Little Legion"  May 29  STEVE HUBERT  TERRY,  May 30  'THE MUSIC MAN'  DINNERS BY MAMIE  Every Friday, 5-7 pm  $3.00   BINGO EVERY THURS  At R.C.

Theatre benefit dance  at Gibsons Legion  by Brad Benson  One of the advantages of the  fundraising activities that are  taking place to help build a first  class theatre in Gibsons is that  Coast residents are being treated  to some first class dances. Last  April's benefit dance featuring  Valdy drew a packed house that  became so enthusiastic Valdy  and his Nick of Time Band  weren't allowed to shut down  until they had played four or  five encores.  This Friday, May 29 at the  Gibsons Legion, another benefit dance is being held that promises to be another sell-out.  Though not so well known as  Valdy, the band The Accelerators was chosen for its style of  music and ability to give its audience what they came for, one  whale of a good time.  At least, so says the dance's  sponsor, Rocky Zantolas, who  on his own initiative has put up  the money to help get the dance  started.  An ex-stuntman who now  provides transport to the film  industry under his company  name Rolling Rock Enterprises,  Zantolas grew up and lives on  the Coast. Quite naturally, he  supports the building of a  theatre for the Sunshine Coast.  He's also a music fanatic who  won't hesitate to take up his  guitar and belt out an old  favourite, so his pick of a band  should prove to be a good one.  The Accelerators are billed as  a band that likes to have as  much fun as the audience. Their  music ranges from choices from  the 60's British Invasion such as  the Beatles, the Hollies, Manfred Mann, and the Stones, to  American groups such as the  Doors, the Guess Who, Clearwater Revival and Lovin'  Spoonful. They also mix in contemporary artists such as Tom  Petty, Los Lobos and Willie  and the Poor Boys, and will  round out their performance  with   some   of   their   own  material.  Get your tickets early, this  one promises to be another sellout.

Mermaids are  beautiful and have long  gorgeous hair that falls over  their shoulders and flows across  their chest. This piece has an  abstraction of the body, yet it  shows a beautiful figure of a  typical mermaid of the sea."  We Were surprized at what we  saw at the show. The sculptures  were simple works, so simple we  would never have thought of  them. They displayed a wide array of abstract and colourful  ideas that gave a warm feeling  to the atmosphere in the gallery.  The show is recommended to  all, except little children on their  own. Feelings were that the  price tags on the pieces were a  little too steep for many to handle if a piece were broken. Take  time and come see the art for  yourself.  by Montague Royal  Of all the men who helped  open up the stupefying tangle of  frowning mountains, uncharted  forests and wild rivers that was  early British Columbia, none  performed a more vital service  than the Corps of Royal Engineers. Their feats are the stuff of  legend. Working against almost  impossible odds, they built the  roads and bridges and blazed  the borders. Their engrossing  story is well told by Beth Hill in  her new book Sappers (Horsdal  and Schubart). She studs her  narrative with first hand accounts from contemporary letters and journals to bring the  past to life.  The first engineers arrived in  the raw new colony in 1848  when the Cariboo Gold Rush  was just starting to pick up  steam. The sappers made their  headquarters at Derby (as old  Fort Langley was known). They  were known as The Boundry  Commission and their initial  task was to survey and establish  the US/Canadian Border along  the 49th parallel. It looked like a  straightforward enough task on  paper but the inclement weather  and rugged terrain made for  slow going.  The ranks of these original  engineers were soon swelled by  several other detachments. They  were based at Queensborough  (New Westminster)., under the  command of Colonel Richard  Clement Moody. Their primary  function was the construction  of roads and mule trails. An  early task involved hacking a  land route across the heavily-  timbered Burrard Peninsula  from New Westminster to the  present site of Vancouver.  Another important route they  opened was the first main access  to the Cariboo gold fields from  Port Douglas, at the head of  Harrison Lake, to Lillooet. The  hard working Sappers also laid  out the townsites of Hope and  Yale.  Despite the important trail-  blazing work the Royal Engineers were doing, their presence  in the Colony was looked on  askance by Governor James  Douglas; He disliked Colonel  Moody personally and believed  that, at 22,000 pounds a year,  the Sappers were costing more  than they were worth. He was  convinced that the work could  just as easily be done by  civilians, at much less expense.  This point of view was shared  by others and would result in a  fairly short tenure for the  engineers. But not before they  had chalked up their greatest accomplishment.  The shortest feasible route to  the interior was through the  Fraser Canyon but building a  road along its steep walls was a  formidable challenge. The  Royal Engineers picked up the  gauntlet. In 1862, they commenced the daunting task.  Work proceeded slowly  crawling around cliffsides like  spiders, the Sappers blasted and  cribbed their way up the danr  gerous gorge. There were other  problems besides the terrain.  Many of the white labourers  worked for a short time then  defected up-country to the gold  diggings. Indian and Chinese  workers were brought in and  proved more stable. One of the  major feats of the project was  the construction of the first  Alexandra Bridge, near Spuz-  zum. In the late spring of 1863,  the Cariboo Road was finished  and wagons began to wind  along its giddy pitches on the  way to Barkerville.  The Royal Engineers, ironically, were not given long to  celebrate their most notable  feat. On July 8, 1863, James  Douglas and his supporters got  their way and the Sappers were  informed that they were being  disbanded. The engineers were  given the option of taking Land  grants and staying in B.C., or  returning to England. A large  majority of them chose the  former course. They became  land surveyors, tavern keepers,  policemen and farmers and  blended into the general population.  But the Royal Engineers will  not be forgotten. In a brief five  year span, they laid the basic  groundwork for the province as  we know it today. In Sappers,  Beth Hill has given them their  well deserved due.  Want a Change?       Neeci a Rest?

At about 4:30 the children started to ask about food and I  recalled that Ruby Lake Resort has a Sunday Smorgasbord so we headed  over there.  I was surprised to see 'Reserved' signs on all the tables, but a friendly  waitress said she could squeeze us in if we could be finished by 6:30.  Dinner commenced with a trip to the bountiful salad bar. Every kind of  salad imaginable is available: pasta salads, vegetable salads, slaws and sweet  salads. The children were delighted at the garnishes: pickled crabapples,  baby com, sunflower seeds, pickles and whatever you like. I was a little concerned, when I saw their heaping plates, that they'd have no room left for  the main course.  By the time we'd finished our salads, the mouthwatering smell of baked  ham had filled the room and noone needed any persuasion to load up on  the main course. Mashed potatoes and com accompanied three different  kinds of meat. The waitress told me that each week they have ham and beef  as well as one other selection.  I had a slice of each, the third kind this week being roast pork, and the  chef urged me to return for more. Aren't smorgasbords wonderful! The  food was perfectly done. I restrained myself from going back for more but  indulged myself by nibbling the delicious homemade roll before trying the  two deserts that were offered.  I took a small piece of the chocolate mint cake because I hate to think  I've missed anything, and a medium portion of the cherry trifle because it  looked fabulous. They were both superb!  By the time we'd finished the desert portion of our dinner, everyone was  filled to the brim and noone felt like moving, so we took our coffees to a  table outside. The children entertained themselves on the swings and teeter-  totters and we sipped our coffee and watched the swans and ducks gliding  over the lake. It was one of those rare moments when each member of the  family was completely content.  I can honestly say that our meal at Ruby Lake was one of those times that  the entire family will remember as special. The staff at the dining room are  wonderful with children and adults alike, setting a relaxed atmosphere from  the moment you walk in.  The cost of this delightful experience ensures that you leave in that same  relaxed mood. The smorgasbord costs $10.95 for adults, $5.50 for children  ages five to 12, and children under five are free.  One cautionary note, before you drive all the way up from Gibsons or  Sechelt, make a reservation. It would be a shame to go all that way only to  discover that they can't fit you in.

' 886-6600 ============  by Alan Wilson  * What is the Peace Movement? Is it merely a group of  ragged soothsayers haunting  street corners, waving signs and  shouting exaggerated warnings  of nuclear doom ("the end is  nigh")? Is it a bunch of  politically-inspired, anti-  'American leftist agitators, consciously or unconsciously abetting Soviet designs for world  'domination?  I The fact that either (or both)  ;6f these impressions is still  ���heard is evidence that we (and  perhaps those who like to paint  ���stereotypes) are failing to do an  adequate job of presenting our  ��� message.  ; The Peace Movement stands  I fox much more than nuclear  "disarmament. And although its  \ message is pre-eminently one of  c concern, a warning, it is also a  l message of hope, a call for ac-  I tion to make the changes re-  ��� quired to preserve life on planet  J earth.  > While the Peace Movement  \may appear to be focused on  issues like "arms'control", it is  ��quite aware that there are other  \ threats to life besides nuclear  war. Even if we somehow avoid  such a war, we cannot realistically expect to continue on our  present course much longer  without experiencing the  catastrophic consequences of  over-population and environmental degradation.  The important insight is the  connection between war and  these other threats. All are  somehow jointly rooted in the  pernicious human desire to control and consume nature.  Many are now stressing the  linkage between these issues.  One of the important books of  the recent past, The Population  Bomb, made explicit use of this  connection in its title. Its  author, Paul Erhlich, is one of  the great names in the ecology  movement, the movement  which is trying to preserve the  natural balance of the earth.  More recently Erhlich and his  wife Anne co-authored a series  of articles which elaborate this  theme, entitled: "Thoughts on  the desifh of a sane world", in  which they describe "war and  environmental degradation (as)  the two greatest threats to the  persistence of society".

It would be a world with a  smaller, sustainable population,  a world recognizing the interdependence of all life forms,  where human consumption is  reduced, where ecological and  cultural diversity is promoted, a  world with limited industrialization, where human institutions  are adapted to nature, and  where WAR IS THE ONLY  EXTINCT SPECIES!  Is this Utopian? Maybe, but  those who denigrate the work of  social activists cannot have it  both ways: they cannot claim  we are all doom and gloom,  then turn around and deride us  for our optimistic ideals. We  must have an ideal to work  towards.  Yet such positive thinking  must be realistic. We must not  allow ourselves the illusion that  somehow the biosphere is sufficiently robust or that warnings  of environmental collapse are  exaggerated, that over-population will be kept in check by  mass starvations and wars in the  "third world" or by disease and  "natural" disasters.  The interconnectedness of  these issues, in fact, suggests  that future wars will be brought  about by ecological problems  and population pressures.  Those in the Peace Movement,  therefore, must be concerned  that these matters are dealt with  peacefully before desperation  leads to war.  We must be concerned with  the fart that our way of life is  creating severe environmental  and economic problems, adding  to tensions which can only increase as the global population  begins to skyrocket right off the  graph.  The scope of the problem  faced by life on this planet is exhaustively detailed by ecologist  Lee Durrel in her important new  book, The State of the Ark  (Doubleday, 1986). She points  out that the rate of species' extinctions is rising as fast as the  growth of human population.  Species deaths are expected to  reach about 50,000 per year by  the year 2000.  Recently the Globe and Mail  reported that, "at the present  rate of extinction of plants and  animals, in 150 years half of all  species of life will be gone, and  in 200 years 80 per cent will be  extinct".  Does it matter if we have  fewer plants and animals? Are  they mere curiosities, inessential  for human life? Not so say the  scientists. Studies are now  showing that due to the delicate  interconnections of ALL life,  the extermination of even an apparently "insignificant" species  may have immense consequences to the entire food chain  and ecological web.  Then there are warnings of a  global warming trend, due to  pollution, which may make the  planet uninhabitable for human  life in 500 to 1000 years.  As Durrell says, "At present,  the fabric of the natural world  that supports us is rotting away  thread by thread. We are but a  single species...and our own  WANTED  Used Furriitiire  and What Have You  FURNITURE  We buy Beer Bottles  886-2812  survival is by no means secure".  On the other hand, she is  quick to stress that, "human beings are capable of using living  resources wisely. The methods  needed to achieve sustainable  development are known".  What is required is a change  in thinking, a new respect for  nature, an acceptance of the  diversity of life (both "natural"  and human), and a relaxation of  our persistent attempts to shape  things to our imagined human  "best interests".  We must not fail to understand the consequences of the  human drive to subdue the  natural world. This is the real  threat against which we must  stand on guard, not some external ideological "enemy". If we  do not wake up to this fact, we  shall soon find that we are guarding an empty, poisoned shell  of a globe.  ||0* FINANCIAL  PLANNING SEMINAR  PLACE: Legion Hall, Gibsons  DATE:   Wednesday, May 27th  TIME:    7:00 pm -10:00 pm  Some of the topics to be covered  ��� How to plan, choose and Implement a  productive investment strategy  ** How to plan for and accumulate at least  $250,000 In the next 15 years.  ��� How to pay less or even NO INCOME TAX  GREAT PACIFIC MANAGEMENT CO.

Ambulance  Service. Here in B.C. we are extremely fortunate to have a  superior service, second to none  in Canada. If the ambulance  service is privatized it will be the  user who pays.  We read in the paper with  horror about the cost of health  care in the US. With a private  ambulance service we can expect to see a drastic increase in  the costs to the user.  In B.C. the most frequent  user of the ambulance is the  elderly. Most could not afford  to pay the high costs. They will  be affected by a private service.  Will they be able to afford to  call for help?  We will see in a private service the present levels of care we  receive decline. B.C. Ambulance attendants are required  to undergo rigorous training  and are constantly upgrading  their skills. With no set standards we will not be able to  count on consistency of care.  When we say the 'user pays',  what does this mean? When you  call an ambulance you will be  charged for every kilometer you  travel, for every sheet you lay  on, for every litre of oxygen you  breathe, etc.  With today's present system  we pay one small fee. If we have  to pay as we use, we can expect  to pay upwards of $100 per trip.  How will it be when the ambulance arrives to them saying  "Can you pay?" first, then  worry later about you and your  care. This is what we can expect!  If you are happy with the present B.C. Ambulance Service,  make your thoughts known.  Write or call our MLA. Lets  stop this before it is too late!

He'll  grab everything he can, far  more than he can possibly eat,  and still wonder afterward what  he missed.  That's rather what it's like to  be born when the sun is in  Gemini, May 22 to June 21.  There, before you, is a whole  world of things to do, and see,  and learn, and only one short  lifetime to do it all. Luckily you  were born with a quick mind  and a natural vitality to help  you on your "learning spree".  To a Gemini, it's the collecting of knowledge and experience that's important,  rather than what it can be applied to. As long as you're learning and experiencing new  things, you will feel all right  with yourself.  The planet Mercury rules  Gemini, emphasizing communication as an integral part  of the personality. The sharing  of all the information you have  can make you a fascinating person to be with, but remember  that communication involves an  exchange of information. While  you're talking, you're not learning anything new.  You can use communication  as a way of getting closer to  people, or you can use it to  build walls around yourself.  . It is easy for a Gemini to use  words to block off communication. The one thing you never  run out of is words, and I pity  any other sign that tries to get  into a verbal battle with you.  But you enjoy life most when  you're learning, so try to  remember to listen, really listen,  to other people. Everyone has  some insight or information to  impart to you. .  Those of you born after June  7 have been having some difficult times since January of this  year. Saturn and Uranus have  been travelling back and forth  in opposition to 'your sun, probably leaving you feeling both  frustrated and rebellious. This is  going to carry on for the rest of  the year, although those of you  'born before the 14th should be  over the worst of it by the end  of August.  It's an especially upsetting  time because you're probably  running into situations that  restrict you and that can drive a  Gemini crazy.  Uranus is whispering words  of rebellion in your ear and it's  easy to find a reason to take a  stand for the sake of your individual freedom. But slow  down a minute. Before you  draw your battle line, make very  sure that you know inside  yourself what it is you want. If  you're angry, follow the anger  back and look at what is  underlying it. Is there hurt?  Why? Is this a repeat of some  childhood patterns? What is it  you need to feel right?  You might find yourself taking a stand, just because that's  what you feel like doing. But if  you really want to change some  of the things that are happening  to you, make your rebellion  count for something important.  Don't let it simply come out in  mood swings and nasty word  battles. Of course you'll win  those battles but big deal!  Unless it results in some changes  it will be an empty victory.

Coast News, May 25,1987  19.  by Ken Collins  "Make democracy work!"  was the message a 19 year old  speaker named Seth gave to the  Sunshine   Coast   high   school  #1 ENEMY  The  BUSHWHACKER  Steve Cass  885-7421  Please Leave Message  students last Tuesday. Seth was  representing the Montreal based  Students Against Global Extinction (SAGE). SAGE have  visited over 350 schools in  Canada since last September,  reaching over 120,000 young  people. While on the Coast Seth  spoke at all three high schools.  At Elphinstone he opened by  asking students, "Do you think  a nuclear war is going to happen  in your lifetime and if you don't  think so, what is keeping it from  happening?"  The audience erupted in  dialogue as he sat back and let  an informal discussion evolve  and answered questions.  "What about human error?  What   about   terrorists...a  s^y  $*<���>**  6*VV  9f*  HOMELITE  STIHL  Al's Power Mu* Service  5542 I nlet Ave., Sechelt  885-4616  demented dictator...computer  malfunction...?" came the  questions.  The answers were in the form  of information. Exactly who  had access to the button, the  ease of making a nuclear bomb,  the difficulty in obtaining  materials.  Seth was optimistic. "It  doesn't necessarily require a  change of leadership," he said  speaking of stopping the arms  race. "Even Ronald Reagan  when he came into power was  talking about winning a nuclear  war, which is kind of a  dangerous idea. He's not  anymore.  "Politicians have long term  ambitions," he said. "They are  not mean, they are not mali  cious, but often they don't  know what they are talking  about.  "Write your views to your  MP," he said. "They have to  respond by law. If you don't  like the reply, phone up. You  have a right to meet with your  MP.  "As informed people we have  influence," he said, stressing  education. He also urged  students to develop a critical attitude. "Don't take for granted  what I have said today."  In closing, Seth compared attitudes about the arms race to  those of a previous era about  slavery. He said the opponents  to it were called naive and its  supporters said it was good for  the economy.  Peer counselling  by Ken Collins  Approval was given by  School Trustees for a locally  developed course on Peer  Counselling to be held at  Chatelech Secondary next year.  "Students talk to students."  explained Chatelech counsellor  Merle Bottaro. The Peer Counselling course would train  students to give counselling to  other students. Some of the  areas explored would be Death  and Dying, Suicide Indicators,  the Choices Program and Teenage Pregnancy.  "Some of these areas are inappropriate for students." said  Trustee Fuller.  "Whether we like it or not,  students are talking about these  subjects right now to each  other." countered Mrs. Bottaro.  �� 450 J.D.

Send your entries to reach the Coast News, Box 460, Gibsons by  Saturday of this week. Last week's winner was Deanna Nygard of  Box 2388, Sechelt, who correctly located the fire hydrant in front of  Grace Rutherford's house in Halfmoon Bay.  No relief  in sight  for clivers  Sechelt Council has decided  to take no action in providing  washroom facilities for divers  using Tuwanek Point. Alderman Mike Shanks outlined the  opposition to any such development at Wednesday's council  meeting.  Having talked to residents in  the area and gone through correspondence relating to the matter, Shanks listed 10 concerns  which local residents cited for  not encouraging divers to use  the area. Some of them want  the divers forbidden to use the  spit, but Mayor Koch pointed  out that such a prohibition  would become a human rights  issue.  Shanks will attempt to encourage divers to use the Porpoise Bay Provincial Park as a  gathering point, where parking  and washroom facilities already  exist.  He will be talking to Vince  Bracewell about locating canoes  at that location so that divers  can easily get out to Poise  Island and dive there.  However, a local diver who  was at the meeting told council  that divers use Tuwanek spit  because the waters between that  point and the island contain a  quantity and variety of marine  life not found in other parts of  the bay.  Wilson in  new role  Area A Regional Director  Gordon Wilson was last Friday  elected chairman of the  Association of Vancouver  Island Municipalities Economic  ; Task Force.  Representing the Sunshine  Coast and Powell River Regional Districts, Wilson's election  gives the Sunshine Coast a  much higher profile and a much  stronger lobby position for action on local economic issues.  The Economic Task Force  has recognized highways  development and tourism as  priorities, and number one  among them is the upgrading of  Highway 101 from Port Mellon  to Earls Cove, including the  Gibsons by-pass.  The steering committee has  undertaken to act as a lobby  group to the provincial government on this matter, and having  a direct connection to government ministers gives it a "very  strong voice", Wilson told the  Coast News.  Also on the priority list is the  construction of the interior  route to the Vancouver Island  Highway, and the promotion of  the 'Sunshine Circle Tour' circuit, which includes the Sunshine Coast.  Because of the perceived  urgency of the highway situation, the Task Force will subsequently be meeting monthly instead of every three months.  sqyd  sqyd  Umm ��m$ FW-Sliuj FBal.....  i��yH@d5    &U$H& (for floats & decks that last)      3 "^"sq yd  \BwSmqlm Hmi Twiiafc..........1895 sqyd  'Bwdi^m Country Suite,  Luxury Cut Loop and Supremacy Nylon ... __^      sq yd  sq ft  sq.ft.  ...And More  LARGE NEW SHIPMENT of  Reg. $24.95 - $35.95 sq yd  I** $995sc yd  __wv_ Got a floor For Vo��   I        we've Got a floor r��r *"u _ ���--- Z**^   ��*% 4_^  VRlESlSQE��  886-7112  709 Hwy 101, Gibsons  quadte  quality  BEDROOM SUITE    r  in Oak finish.
