Array Aquaculture conference  Dates conflict  jeopardizes  The fourth annual Aquaculture Conference may not be  held on the Sunshine Coast this  year, industry representative  Art Giroux told the Economic  Development Commission last  week. Producing a glossy brochure, he told the meeting that  the Vancouver Trade and Convention Centre has announced  an International Aquaculture  Conference which is being  scheduled for exactly the same  time as the local event.  The timing he said, was at the  suggestion of an "ex-commissioner". It is understood that he  was referring to former Economic Development Commissioner Oddvin Vedo.  While there is little that the  local association can do, they  will be writing to Grace McCarthy to point out that this conference will be taking away  from several smaller communities. He asked the commission to write a "letter of regret"  to the Aquaculture Association  indicating the economic benefit  that the conference has had on  the Sunshine Coast.  There is still a slight possibility that the Sunshine Coast conference will go ahead. Giroux  told the Coast News that all the  booth spaces have already been  booked and the conference  committee was planning on expanding facilities to accomodate  everyone.  Seamus Hennessey returned to Roberts Creek Elementary School  last week to renew his friendships and speak to his old classmates  about his physical limitations. Seamus was just approaching his  seventh birthday when he was struck by a car while riding a bike  Safety thoughts stressed  and suffered spinal cord damage. After over an hour of answering  questions, he was able to spend some time with old friends as they  took their lunch break.  ���Penny Fuller photo  Langdon laments  lack of notice  Seamus visits school chums  by Penny Fuller  On March 11, 1985, six year  old Seamus Hennessey was  struck by a car while riding his  bike on Beach Avenue. Last  Tuesday, he returned for the  first time to visit the classmates  at Roberts^ Creelc Elementary  that lie knew aflliattim^7':^ -7  He returned in a wheelchair,  his7breathing maintained by a  respirator, to renew aquain-  tances and answer the students'  questions about his accident  and his disabilities.  Although Seamus is capable  of speaking, there is no air  pressure behind his words, so  his teacher from Emily Can-  School in Vancouver, Catherine  Jennings, accompanied him to  read his lips and vocalize his  words.  He told the students that  when he was hit by the car, two  cervical vertebrae were damaged, leaving him paralyzed from  the neck down. The respirator  does his breathing for him and  food is taken direcdy into the  ftbmsfcti,^because toe^ve*-  which regulates food going into  the stomach and air going into  the lungs is inoperative.  The class was encouraged to  ask any questions they had and  Seamus answered inquiries  about everything from rumours  about his accident to whether he  slept in a wheelchair or a bed.  After over an hour of questions and answers, the class saw  a   video   of   Seamus   being  honoured for his achievements  at Emily Carr.  The school is a normal  elementary school with, able  bodied students. With the help  of an attendant and his teacher,  Seamus carries a full Grade 6  course load,,-He does much of  hfelwbrk oif ?^co%puter, with a-  special straw in his mouth and  using a suck-and-blow method  he operates with morse code.  Before he joined, the school  on their lunch break, his father,  Patrick, asked the students to  think more about bicycle safety.  He encouraged them to take a  safety course and wear protective helmets.  In an interview with the  Coast  News he  said that  it  wasn't until after the accident,  that he and his wife saw psycho-  logists' reports that said  childrentunder 10 should not be  riding--bikes on the street- According to the reports, until that  age, children are not cognizant  of their own mortality, nor  capable of focusing on road  ^ .;.* >afety7 ^? well; as ^vrt^^they^  going, and what someone else is  up to.  Paul Kelly, who teaches the  Grade 6 class-that Seamus  visited, said that although the  students said that it would make  them more aware of road safety  for a brief while, they admitted  that, like adults, they would  need reminding after some time  had passed.  Alderman Anne Langdon  took council to task at its  regular Wednesday meeting  June 3 about a special meeting  held on the morning of May 29  of which she was not notified.  There were three important  by-laws dealt with at that  meeting. All were concerned  with money.  The Rockwood Lodge acquisition by-law was reconsidered and finally adopted, the  Sechelt Recreation and Office  Complex by-law was given first,  second and third readings, and  the District of Sechelt Official  ���>Conimunity.^Pian.,, By-law ,22A;.  1987 was'given fi^  readings.  "Why were these motions  made on Friday?" asked Alderman Langdon. Mayor Koch explained in order to get them  over and back from Victoria,  time had been of the essence.  Alderman Langdon countered that the Municipal Act was  quite   specific,   all   council  members must receive 24 hours  written notice or vote  unanimously to waive that condition for a special meeting to  take place.  "It is not that I object to the  business that was carried out,"  she stated, "I object to the manner in which the meeting was  called. It was not that I was  unavailable. I was in the office  the previous day."  All business at the meeting  was gone over and voted on  again.  Also at the same special  meeting it was decided that the  .portion of the Rockwood  Lodge "propertjr wherelii^th��  Tourist Information Booth is  located will be leased to the  Chamber of Commerce for $1 a  year.  The final decision from the  special meeting was to donate a  $400 bursary to a graduating  student of Chatelech Secondary  School who, in the opinion of  the principal, is the most improved student.  ���*&*.-*&*"C;? !-������*:  Campground proposal  Still wrapt in red tape  After more than two years of  struggling   through   red   tape,  Redge Hillman continues to run  into obstacles set by the Sun-  shine Coast Regional  District  ; (SCRD)   in   his   attempt   to  ', establish   a   campground   on  ; Stewart Road adjacent to Gib-  ; sons town boundary.  ;     At last week's Gibsons Coun-  ; cil meeting, the town received a  ��� lengthy document from the  ',SCRD, outlining their objec-  7 tions to Mr. Hillman's applica-  ; ��� tion to have the property includ-  ���������; ed within the town boundaries.  �� Hillman told the Coast News  ; in an interview last Friday, that  ��� he had applied for the boundary  7 extension after being repeatedly  " frustrated in his attempts to ac-  ,"��� quire a zoning change which  7 would allow him to begin build-  Ting a campground and eventuality a guest ranch/retreat on his  !*�� property.  '* When he originally made an  "offer for the property in  ' January of 1984, he said, the  I" zoning was compatible with his  ! plans, although the land was in  ! the Agricultural Land Reserve  : (ALR). In April, 1985 however,  ; By-Law Number 264 was pass-  ; ed and campgrounds were excluded as a permissable use  under the new by-law.  Hillman applied to have the  parcel removed from the ALR,  and with the regional district's  support succeeded in December  1985. At this time, the Hillmans  had hopes of having a campground in place for Expo '86.  Objections from neighbours  expressed at a public hearing on  the rezoning application caused  further delays as he attempted  L ��� ' J   .    '  ' '  r . * i *  to change his plans to address  their concerns.  However, he maintains that  as fast as he addressed concerns, new requirements were  added. "I got the feeling they  were just trying to put hurdles  in our way," he said.  Having missed Expo, something he's not sorry about,  Hillman finally decided to  simplify things and apply to be  included in the Gibsons jurisdic-  Irate taxpayer  speaks his mind  tion. This would enable him to  tie into the town's sewer system  which would alleviate neighbours' concerns about a septic  field for the campground.  In spite of the SCRD's objections, he's optimistic that eventually he'll be a part of Gibsons.  "I feel confident it will happen because it's good economics. We need more facilities  for tourists, especially on long  weekends" he said.  An irate Billy Fong approached Gibsons Council  meeting last week to voice his  objections about the excessive  increase in his property taxes.  Over the years, he told council,  his taxes have gone steadily up  by $75 or $100 each year. He explained that he had accepted  this with good grace because, "I  figured they must need it."  However, this year Fong said  his taxes are up as much as $600  on a piece of property. One property he owns, which has had  no improvements to it over the  year, has had the assessment  value increased by $20,000 this  year, and another had the assessment go down by $4000 but the  taxes were up $253.  Mayor Diane Strom explained that the town has no involvement in 'assessing properties,  that falls under the jurisdiction  of the B.C. Assessment Authority. She also told Fong that the  town was only responsible for  the general government portion  of the tax. The school board tax  and the regional district tax, she  said, are only collected by the  municipalities. They are not set  by the town nor does council  have any voice in discussion of  the school board budget.  Mr. Fong appeared to be unsatisfied with the explanations.  He suggested that the assessment authority makes their  decisions on a random basis and  said that someone has to take  responsibility for controlling the  school board budget.  "What if they want another  million next year? Even if they  ask for $100 million we have to  give it," he complained.  Council members sympathized with Mr. Fong, relating their  own tax increases. Alderman  Bob Maxwell suggested that  council send a letter to the  school board, stating their feelings about the increased taxes,  as their tax collectors." The  motion was passed.  Jean Crowhurst (standing, left), Kay Wood and Hilda Lee are welcomed to the Gibsons Pioneer Tea at  Stonehurst, the old Dr. Inglis house, by Margaret Inglis (left) and Nonie Hill. "They told me when I  came here that I'd have to live here 50 years before I would be considered a resident," joked Jean. "I've  Still got 14 years to go!" ���Fran Burnside photo  Survey nears completion  The final bugs are being ironed out of a survey being designed for residents of the Sunshine  Coast who are 50 or older,  Alderman Bob Maxwell told the  Economic Development Commission last week.  The purpose of the survey is  to "analyze and dispel myths  about the retirement sector" he  explained. "It will provide rele-  yent data and insights to assist  in providing the necessary  framework for required housing,  service,   economic  in  itiatives, advertising and planning for this important sector on  the Sunshine Coast."  He cautioned the commission  that the retirement industry may  not be a really profitable investment. He cited the Mayor of  Victoria who has recently been  making statements about the  added cost to the community in  social services. However, he  maintained that the situation  here may be different. "If we  don't ask the questions we'll  never really know," he said.  There was some discussion of  the terminology to be used in  the survey. Sechelt Chamber of  Commerce representative Bonnie Paetkau pointed out that if  the word 'seniors' is used, people 50 years old will simply  throw it out, since they can't  really be considered seniors.  r ' t  ,   " 1      '*���   ^r l*>     .��'       �� *   ���        ����� * In* 1 .

Without benefit of a  public referendum or even publishing the results of the  financial feasibility investigations they were supposed to be  doing, council gave first, second and third readings to a  by-law enabling them to purchase Lot 7 for the purpose of  building a leisure/recreation complex.  The cost of the land purchase alone is $550,000, over  $110 per citizen of the new District Municipality of  Sechelt. The meeting at which this took place was so secret  that Alderman Anne Langdon was not even invited, which  may be the only reason that the media became aware of it  at a public meeting. Langdon insisted that the motions be  put through again at the public meeting so that she could  vote for them too.  At this one meeting, alone, council managed to spend  almost $620,000. Rockwood Lodge was purchased, a  scholarship donated, and land purchased.  Perhaps with everyone being so sensitive about the recent increase in taxes, council felt it would be rubbing salt  in the wounds to have the public present at their spending  spree.  A beacon  Gibsons Alderman Bob Maxwell may annoy some people with the stands he takes on various issues, but whether  you agree with him or not, you always know his position.  It is then up to citizens to decide whether or not they  choose to vote for Maxwell in future elections.  Other council members prefer to keep the electorate  uncertain about their opinions.They consistently abstain  from voting on any issue which might cause someone to be  angry with them. Motions are frequently passed at council  meetings with only the mover and seconder voting.  Agree or disagree with him, the fact remains, Alderman  Bob Maxwell is like a beacon shining in the political fog of  the Town of Gibsons.  Bear in mind  Before we go forming vigilante groups to harass  aldermen and school trustees, perhaps we might do a comparison of the percentage of school taxes shouldered by  property owners today compared with the percentage 10  years ago.  For the past decade the provincial government has been  shifting more and more on to property owners and away  from general revenues for the upkeep of our schools. The  object being to have local officials take the heat when the  public got fed up. Something to bear in mind as the tide of  anger gets whipped up against municipal and school officials.  ,*,-,,' ^', ���,*���?��'.  -%V >�����>  ~ A<   ^'<-"<^'^''^.*^V*"^^<V.-w.��S*A.V��^'^  ���Jmm If* M** of the COAST NEWS  5 YEARS AGO  Roberts Creek resident, 90 year old Hubert Evans will  be honoured in a collage of personal tribute by family,  friends and other writers at the Sechelt Arts Centre.

BOf CAM 0NUX  Give fifties ^  p��T��N1ibN5  Coast Lines  Language pitfalls abound  by Nancy MacLarty  The English language is  tricky. 'No' could mean 'know'  and 'right' could mean 'write'. I  admire immigrants who are able  to learn our language within a  few months. That's why it irritates me to hear those who  have spoken English all their  lives misuse it so.  Of course, there are exceptions. For instance, I have  neighbours from England who  still call a roast a 'joint', a  sweater a 'jumper' and an oven  a 'cooker'. But that's alright  because in England that's what  they are called. And who better  to know the English language  than the English. In fact, they  think, we're cniite odd using  some of the words the way we  do. But thatfs 'jlfct ^6m,*$Dt  misuse or incorrect Eriglishv,-/  Incorrect English is when an  animal lover tells you that he or  she has just had their dog 'spaded'. The vision that immediately  comes to my mind upon hearing  this is that they have attacked  poor Fidette with a garden tool,  or dug her into the tomatoes as  fertilizer! But, I think to myself,  "no, this can't be...this person  loves animals."  Of course, what they really  mean is that they have had their  female dog spayed. To spay, as  most of us know, is to remove  the ability to bear young by excising the uterus of a female  animal. Spayed is the past tense  of spay. But somehow, these  ��� otherwise intelligent people,  have added an extra 'd' to come  up wjth spaded.  Another common mistake  has to do with human males.  When a friend tells you that he  :f��\vas 'prostrate' trouble and may  have to have an operation;- 'it  *- seldorh me$ns"!Lhat!he hastfrp|i-  ble with! his legs or has to sleep  standing up. Even though ''prostrate' means lying at full  length. What they are probably  trying to say is that they do have  a problem with their prostate  gland. Not the most minor of  ailments, but certainly not one  that usually prostrates those afflicted. Another case of an added letter. This time an *r\  And how many of us insist on  driving on or paving with  'ashphalt'? Why are we so  determined to pronounce  'asphalt' as 'ashphalt'? Where  did that extra 'h' come from?  Another thing that bothers  me about the way English is used is heard almost every day on  television. How often have you  heard a news reporter sign off  by saying "In Ottawa, I'm so  and so"? Doesn't that make  you wonder who they are in  Toronto or Vancouver?  And when a host ends a program with..."until tomorrow,  I'm so and so", don't you  wonder what name they'll  assume in 24' hours?'' '*"  Why couldn't they say "I'm  so and so and I'll be back  tomorrow" or "I'm so and so  reporting from Ottawa".  Maybe it's just my wierd turn  of mind. For instance, a few  weeks ago at Sechelt Council,  Alderman Graham Craig was  reporting on the Emergency  Preparedness Program for the  Sunshine Coast, or PEP as it is"  called. He $aid that he had'  taken part in a desk top exercise,;  which could prove invaluable in  the event of an emergency. I im- ���  mediately envisioned the whole*  committee crowded onto the  top of a desk and all doing  aerobics. Of course, this was  not the case.  But, it's alright Alderman  Craig. After all, I'm sure that I  was the only one in hysterics  when the late John Diefen-  baker, in paying tribute to a colleague, stood up in the House of  Commons and said, "Flora  MacDonald is the finest woman  to have walked the streets of  Kingston since the days of Confederation."  Peace notes  Pacific arms build-up greatest  by Alan Wilson  Last week as part of the  observance of international  Disarm the Seas weekend, US  researcher and author Lyuba  Zarsky (Department of Economics, University of Massachusetts) spoke at Nanoose and  in Victoria. She also made time  to meet with me in Nanaimo to  discuss her views on the military  significance of the Pacific.  "It's where the arms race is  most active", she said. "Since  the late 1970's, the US has  undertaken a major military  build-up in the Pacific to  achieve what is referred to as  'maritime supremacy'. As it  stands now, the Soviets are  outgunned five to one. The  Soviets don't have a single aircraft carrier to match the six US  carrier battle groups in the  Pacific. Most Soviet bombers  and" fighter planes are capable  only of territorial defence.  Moreover, the USSR has only two allies in the Pacific;  North Korea, which is  adamantly independent, and  Vietnam.  In contrast, the Pacific is the  Pentagon's largest multi-service  unified region of military operations. The Commander In Chief  Pacific (CINCPAQ commands  more than 320,000 US Army,  Navy, Marine, and Airforce  troops and has bases all over the  Pacific. The USSR is entirely  hemmed in, with even the  Japanese now being forced by  the US to undertake a major  military role."  Zarsky warned that "nuclear  war is far more likely to break  out here than in Europe." She  quoted former Marine Major  General Bernard Trainor as saying "...we probably at some  time in our lifetime will clash  with them. There are enormous  dangers involved with that."  "The most likely place for a  nuclear war to erupt," said Zarsky, "is in Korea or at sea in the  North Pacific off the Soviet  coast." Why? Well, as US Ar  my Chief General Edward  Meyer said in 1980, escalation  to a nuclear war "is far simpler  here than in Europe where consultations have to be made with  15 different sovereign nations."  The US has a large contingent  in South Korea on a 24 hour-a-  day war footing. Moreover, the  US actually commands the  more than half a million Korean  soldiers. The US also has  . nuclear weapons stored in  South Korea, creating a so-  called 'nuclear trip-wire'.  Because of the massive US  Pacific build-up, the Soviets  have built up a huge arsenal of  SS20 missiles stationed in the  Far East, poised as Zarsky said  "like a sledgehammer" over  Asia. The Soviets reportedly say  that any attack on them,  nuclear OR conventional, "will  bring down its full weight".  This is obviously a very risky  situation, the inevitable result of  a massive imbalance of forces.  Perhaps this is what brought  about Gorbachev's call last year  in Vladivostok for a regional  disarmament and security conference. "The US rejected the  idea outright as mere propaganda", said Zarsky. "The real  worry of the Pentagon," she  said, "is that nuclear arms control or disarmament in the  Pacific would curtail third  world intervention by the US  nuclear Navy."  But can the world afford this  explosive situation? Even the  Soviets don't like it and Gorbachev has reportedly offered  the removal of the Asian based  SS20s. Again the US is balking  at any agreement.  There are other examples of  US intransigence in the Pacific,  such as their refusal to sign the  South Pacific Nuclear Free  Zone Treaty proposed by  Australian Prime Minister Bob  Hawke and approved by the 14  member nation South Pacific  Forum...Th^s, despite the fact,  said Zarsky, that the zone is  aimed primarily at France,  regarded in the region as the-  main nuclear bogey, and designed to leave US nuclear operations untouched. "The Soviet  Union has signed the relevant  protocol and China has indicated it will sign, but the US  has refused."  The aggressive US attitude in  the Pacific is perhaps best ex  emplified by persistent efforts  to overturn the nuclear free constitution of the UN Trust Territory of Palau (Belau), which  the US administers. They have  already forced six referenda on  the issue in an attempt to secure  a portion of Palau for US  Please turn to page 20  Th Average Canadian  Nose Bleed  Sunday morning in Oakatta  pickin * off the crabs, tryin'  to break their backs, or  failin' that, drown 9em  in th overflowd sink, at  least can keep their numbers  down, rumor has it theres to be  a street movie shown today;  last nite on tv ��� hurt lancaster  katherine hepburn in Th Rainmaker,  such a beautiful film, th message,  yu are what yu see yrself  to be, th ultimate in sentimental  solipsism, democracy, th faith  of our times, even J.

Editor:  I just can't believe that a  small town such as ours has to  tax its citizens more than some  communities on the lower  mainland.  As an example: Mr. George  McCormack of the City of Port  Coquitlam writes that they have  the highest property tax rate in  the lower mainland. Taxes on a  home, with an assessed value of  $83,000 is $1095 in the district,  and $1436 in the city. He says  "what is more outrageous is  that both pay the same school  taxes which took a record jump  of 22 per cent this year."  Well I would like to say that  they're lucky, as a house here  on the bluff assessed at only  $53,000 pays $1071 in taxes.  School taxes have risen 37 per  cent and the overall tax is 18 per  cent, for a total increase of  $159.18 over last year, and this  is with no sewer.  Another house down from  the bluff, with sewer, worth  $55,000 has school tax going up  over 50 per cent and overall  taxes 23 per cent, a difference of  $227.39. On this small house  they pay $1231.  Burnaby residents are angry  with 10 per cent to 20 per cent  higher assessments which  amount to between $65 and  $70. A lot lower than our increases, and I would suspect  their houses are worth double  and triple what ours are worth.  In closing, I would like to  point out that our homes have  been declining in value every  year for the last few years; not  only that but from what I can  see, we get very little for our tax  dollars.  A.M. Sandy  Political irony  Editor:  I write this letter to you to express my grave concern over the  events that have taken place in  our province. Wednesday, June  3, 1987 must be written in the  history books as a day of  ultimate political irony in  British Columbia.  On that day the premier of  this province took his seat with  ��� his fellow premiers in Ottawa  ��� and proclaimed how he and his  . colleagues had reached a  . historic accord that would en-  . trench the rights of all Cana-  : dians and build a stronger coun-  r try more respectful of the rights  r of its minorities.  At home in B.C. his attorney  ���" general was making final arrangements to file an affidavit  ;" before the courts that would  * provide his government  with  sweeping powers to remove the  most fundamental rights of the  citizens to political protest and  freedom of speech.  Having had the opportunity  to read the language of the affidavit, I wish to add my voice  to those who protest this act.  The language of the attorney  general's submission is such an  affront to the fundamental  principles of democracy that it  either points out an unwise act  on his part or an agenda that all  British Columbians have a right  to fear.  If this action reflects the  former, then better he drop the  action now. If, however, it  reflects the latter, then I fear for  all British Columbians.  Gordon Wilson  Leadership Candidate  B.C. Liberal Party  Our 'highway'  Editor's note: a copy of the  following was received for  publication.  Mr. Harold M. Long, MLA  Parliament, Buildings  Victoria, BC  Dear Mr. Long:  It was with great interest that  I watched the BCTV news on  Sunday, May 31. On it was  Premier VanderZalm voicing  his displeasure at the decision of  the ferry workers to support the  June 1 general strike.  He was very angry, and  threatened to make the ferries  an essential service if they went  out. In fact, his exact words  were: "If you think that I'd sit  back and do nothing, while a  handful of people blew up one  of B.C.'s highways, you're  crazy."  Premier VanderZalm was  speaking of the island people  being stranded for the day, but I  assume that he was also speaking for the Sunshine Coast,  since we too were stranded on  June 1.  My question is this. Why are  the ferries considered one of  B.C.'s highways when it comes  to strikes or walkouts, but when  it comes to scheduling, all of a  sudden it's the price we must  pay for living in a rural resort  area?  It has been pointed out time  and time again that our ferries  are our highway. Stu Hodgson,  B.C. Ferry Chairman, doesn't  agree. Maybe he should have a  chat with the premier. Or is this  an example of how your government changes things to fit  their uses?  I'm very interested in hearing  your reply.  Cheryl Baron  Theatre meeting  Editor:  On June 10 at 7:30 pm there  will be a First Membership  Meeting of the Gibsons Landing  Theatre Project.

Corby Giffin  Executive Director  Dogs dangerous  Editor's note: a copy of the  following was received for  publication.  Gibsons Postmaster  Dear Sir:  Yesterday when I attempted  to pick up my mail at your office, my way was blocked by a  doberman tied up outside your  front door. This is not unusual,  many large dogs are left tied  there.  In April 1985 I was attacked  by two large dogs left tied there,  so yesterday I chose to walk  around the other way but I still  couldn't pass the dog.  In a situation Like this at  Ken's Lucky Dollar store, one  can simply choose to go to  another grocery store, but there  is only one place I can get my  mail.  Please, please, discourage  this practice. One day someone  is going to be seriously hurt,  perhaps a child.  S.E. Sleep  MORTGAGE UPDATE  Jun 5  6 mo.  1yr.  2 yr.  3 yr.  4 yr.

Coast News, June 8,1987  Guests  delight  Visiting Elderhostel group receives impromptu entertainment from Beachcomber stars Jackson Davies  and Pat John in front of Molly's Reach . ��� Ken Coffins photo  In memoriam  Capt. Bob Sommerfield  Editor's note: the following  eulogy for the late Captain  Robert Oliver Sommerfield,  CD, was given by Captain Ron  Biggs, liaison officer of Royal  Canadian Lagion Branch 140,  Sechelt, and 2963 Seaforth  Cadets. Memorial service was  held at the Legion on Tuesday,  June 2,1987.  The motto of the 2963  Seaforth Army Cadets is: 'The  Bloody Best'.  This motto was well earned.  Thanks to the man whose  memory we honour. I am referring to that dedicated soldier  who served his country well in  peace and war, Captain Robert  Oliver Sommerfield, CD.  His enthusiasm for the cadets  who passed through his hands,  his three regiments, the Princess  Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry (PPCLI), British Columbia Regiment and the Seaforth  Highlanders of Canada was second to none.  His association with the  PPCLI was forged in war and  peacetime service and while his  Seaforth association was of  short duration, he made his  mark with them during that  time. His association with the  British Columbia Regiment  began when the Cadet Corps  was first formed and became affiliated with them and which  has endured until recently.  How do you take a human  being and mold this person into  a dedicated father, soldier, and  father confessor, to untold  numbers of young people  through the years?  To begin with, you are born  in Ste, Anne D'Bellevue,  Quebec on March 8, 1933, being one of five chldren. When  Blackberries'  #1 ENEMY  The  ^ BUSHWHACKER  Steve Cass  885-7421  Please Leave Message  he was 11, he moved to New  Westminster. Later he worked  at various occupations until he  joined the Canadian Army in  1951 and fought in Korea with  the PPCLI until 1953. All this  time he was developing the standards by which he would excel  as a leader of young people.  After Korea he stayed in the  regular force being posted to  Germany, then Canada, leaving  the army in 1962.  He was commissioned into  the Cadet Services of Canada,  the forerunner of the present  organization now known as the  Cadet Instructors' List, and  from there into the Canadian  Scottish Regiment, "that other  Highland Regiment", as Bob  would say.  He came to the Sunshine  Coast in 1965 with his family,  which by this time consisted of  three children, Pam, Cindy and  Sheree. Eventually four grandchildren came along to make his  life complete. These children  have all inherited Bob's sense of  humour, warped though it may  be.  An example of this was one  time while serving in Germany.  The Regimental Sergeant Major  (RSM) was drilling Bob and his  fellow soldiers when the RSM  started to give the order to  "come to attention". He got  the first part of the order out  -"atten..." when a seagull  'squawked' causing the company to come to attention,  smartly, leaving the RSM with  his mouth open! Bob took great  delight in telling this story to  friends.  Bob was a forthright, honest  and direct man who didn't  waste time on petty matters. He  didn't call a spade a spade, he  called it a "bloody shovel".  His sterling qualities of  honesty and integrity was  brought out in all the cadets he  has worked with over the years,  as their awards will show.  He opened many doors for  many young men and women to  pass through on their way  through life. Their expectations  and hopes were all fulfilled,  thanks to Bob.

In closing, I would like to  say, whether it is in civilian life,  legion life, or military life, Captain Robert Oliver Sommerfield, Korean War Medal,  United Nations Service Medal  (Korea), Canadian Forces  Decoration, was, is and will  himself be remembered as 'The  Bloody Best'.  The second week of  Elderhostellers at Capilano College started on Sunday, June 7  and the college and host  families eagerly awaited their  arrival.  Every host spoken to  declared that they had the best  guests ever. One even went so  far as to say they were better  than perfect.  Friday, June 5, was graduation night and the praise for the  program expressed by the  students extended to the  teachers, the staff of Cap College, the people of the area and  especially for the hosts.  What amazed the visitors was  the strong community support.  They enjoyed all that was offered; a look at logging at the  L&K booming grounds, the  Port Mellon mill, Chapman  Creek Hatchery, a tour of the  CBC film set, and a special treat  of ice cream from Truffles,  courtesy of Sheila Kit son, and  watching the carvers at work at  the Sechelt Indian Band.  Sechelt senior citizens hosted  a dinner at their hall with the  69'ers singing plus a performance by the square dancers.  Sybil Dick from Newfoundland was caught sticking  her feet in the Pacific waters on  graduation day and Marilyn  Buhler, a member of the advisory committee presented her  with two bottles, one with sand  and one with seawater.  jf"^i^s^ci*-ri ��� ��� ��� ��� .��-a. -s. a a^  Quote of the Week  Trust in God, and be unmoved by  either praise or false accusations  ...depend entirely on God.

Economic renewal is necessary for all  of us. It will take co-operation. It means  working together. As British Columbians,  we have to take a team approach to  create new jobs and achieve a new level of  prosperity. Bill 19 is part of a positive  program to create more opportunities here  in British Columbia.  We listened to unions, business, and  individual British Columbians and together,  we've made good legislation even better.  It all adds up to a more positive way to  achieve industrial stability and secure jobs  for our people. We can only succeed if we  all pull together. That means co-operation,  not confrontation.  Yet some special interest groups saw fit  to break the law, inconvenience their fellow  British Columbians and exact a heavy toll  on our economy.  THERE WAS NO NEED  TO BREAK THE LAW.  We changed the Industrial Relations ���  Commissioner's role and powers to ensure  accountability for key decisions lie with  the Minister of Labour and other elected  officials.  We eliminated a clause that left the  impression "firings without cause" could  take place.  We moved to prevent workers hired  during a labour dispute from voting on a  collective bargaining issue.  We're making sure hiring of trainees  and apprentices in the union sector  is covered by collective agreements.  We've guaranteed access to grievance  and arbitration procedures for employees  facing discipline for refusing a back to  work order.  We've clarified a clause that was seen  to infringe on unions' rights to legitimately  discipline their members.  Bill 19 will bring us industrial stability,  new investment and most importantly, new  and more secure jobs for British Columbians  if only special interest groups would put  your interest ��� the public interest - first.  Bill 19. let's make it work.  For all of us/'  Lyall Hanson.

First  of all, three cheers to Regional  Director Brett McGillivray for  his quick work in obtaining two  sani-cans for use at the mouth  of the creek. Susan Tveter will  make sure they're kept clean.  Next, a gigantic thank you to  the Strom and Kohuch wedding  parties for leaving the Community Hall in such 'incredibly  clean and wonderful condition'.  The executive, hall cleaner and  community at large are most  appreciative.  Ernie Fossett of the  Elphinstone Recreation Group  has come through again, this  time with a donation for a gas  weed-eater and electric  lawnmower so that John  Williams can keep up the good  work. Many thanks to both  gentlemen.  Lastly, Diana would like to  thank the volunteer parents for  a wonderful grad banquet at  Elphinstone High School and  the kids for the huge bouquet of  flowers presented to her as  'most supportive mother'.  Diana says it made her feel like  a   beauty   queen.   She   loved  working with the kids, they're a  great bunch.  LIBRARY CLOSED  Please note that the Roberts  Creek Community Library will  be closed for renovations for a  few weeks. Apologies for any  inconvenience. Books may still  be returned at Seaview Market  with the borrower's name  noted. The library hopes to  open again Thursday, June 25.  MEETING CHANGED  Roberts Creek Legion Auxiliary members are reminded  that the monthly meeting is  tonight, June 8.  LEGION CELEBRATION  The Roberts Creek Legion is  celebrating its 40th anniversary  this year with a weekend of  festivities on June 19, 20 and  21. There will be a $5  smorgasboard, belly dancing,  and taped music on Friday  night, dinner and dancing to  Ken Dalgleish and Trio on  Saturday night, and an open  house on Sunday afternoon.

CREEK GRAD  A press release from Simon  Fraser University noted that  Alan William Baycroft of  Roberts Creek was receiving a  Bachelor of Arts degree at the  recent convocation ceremonies.  Congratulations to him and all  other worthy graduates whose  names I will mention if their  proud parents or somebody else  would like to call.  ON LOCATION  Downtown Roberts Creek  was a busy place last week. Not  only was there all the usual  Monday morning activity and  the construction on the Post Office building, but the CBC was  filming a scene for The  Beachcombers in front of the  store.  HAPPY WINNER  I don't know about the rest  of the winners in the service raffle at Roberts Creek Elemen-  tary's Fun Fair, but nobody  could have been happier with  his prize than Pat Parker. Susan  Weatherill's mocha cream-filled  chocolate log with fudge icing  and merinque mushrooms was  absolutely decadent. Many  thanks to Susan and the Parents  Auxiliary for sponsoring the  raffle.

Soon there was a graphic example of how thoughtless people can mess up the world as  'Kid Pollutor' (Marlene  Stephens) entered the room  strewing candy wrappers in her  wake.  The story ended happily as  the children and Eco Bear converted the miscreant into 'Eco  Kid' who not only cleaned up  her own garbage, but that left  around by others too.  The children responded enthusiastically   to   the   perfoi- ���  mance which was sponsored by  Environment Canada.  The trio also visited West  Sechelt and Sechelt Elementary  Schools last week and will be  taking their message to Madeira  Park, Cedar Grove and Gibsons  Elementary this week.

In Sechelt  ELDERHOSTEL  Last Wednesday night some  one hundred and more persons  sat down to a pleasant evening  meal in our hall. The group  consisted mainly of members of  the Elderhostel group attending  classes at Capilano College this  weekend and their hosts. These  people came from many states  in the US and some of our  Canadian provinces, as far  away as Talahousie, Florida  and Cornerbrook, Newfoundland. Along with other  members, our square dancers  and our 69ers acted as hosts as  well as providing the after dinner entertainment.  The gathering provided a  good opportunity for our  members to meet and talk with  people from different environments. Thanks go out to  our members who volunteered a  great variety of dishes for the  occasion and those who made  sure the dishes were replenished  when empty and looked after  the kitchen detail. Our usual  group of volunteers provided  tea and coffee to go along with  a light dessert. Mike Timms did  an excellent job as Master of  Ceremonies, Nikki Weber provided the sound system for the  singers, and Floyd Carmen did  the honours in setting up.  All in all, a most enjoyable  evening.  On June 10, the Welcome  Beach people will be hosting a  gathering of the second contingent of Elderhostel people.  Our 69ers will be providing  some entertainment after the  meal is served. It will be another  evening of fun.  ACTrvnTES  Each Monday all through the  summer at 1:30 pm, there will  be carpet bowling under the  able eye of Ernie Wiggins.  As long as the bingo sessions  on the second and fourth  Thursdays at 1:30 pm can draw  18 to 20 or more persons, they  will continue until further  notice.  The craft group is still  meeting each Thursday at 10 am  and will do so until the end of  June when they will take a well  earned rest for the two summer  months. Resumption will take  place on September 10 at the  regular time of 10 am. These  sessions have been attended by  the same dedicated, hardworking people for many months. For you new members and  certainly members who have  belonged for years, remember:  1) You do not have to have  special skills to come in on  Thursday mornings to join the  group.  2) At present, the group is  working on making pom-poms  (which requires no special talent  or skill).  3) In the fall, a number of small  projects will be in progress to  provide articles for sale at our  Christmas Bazaar and many  hands make light work!  4) A cup of coffee or tea and a  cookie at half time will give you  a good chance to chat with your  fellow members and join in the  fun.

In presentation to council, Nancy MacLarty and Elise  Rudland stated, "One of the  greatest obstacles for the  association in reaching our  goals is the lack of basic occupational education on the  Sunshine Coast. This, coupled  with transportation difficulties  in our spread-out area, has  prevented many handicapped  persons from reaching their full  potential."  The association is proposing  to utilize Rockwood Lodge as a  Food Services training program  and stated it would be happy to  work jointly with the 'Think  Tank' group who have also proposed a use for the facility.  In response, Mayor Koch  stated, "We have to look at all  submissions." But he emphasized, "We're interested  more in humanity than in  dollars."  The council passed a motion  of moral support in principle.  on the BARGAIN TRAIL  AT  VUtf4  886-2488  Proceeds aid Food Bank  THRIFTY'S  above Ken's Lucky Dollar  Customer Service  is alive and well  at  SUNSHINE COAST  CREDIT UNION  Drop by our offices  and check us out  t  - Compare our term deposit rates  - Your investment in S.C.C.U. is an  investment in your community.  - We also offer $1000 minimum term  deposits at high rates of interest  1  Jr^_  SUNSHINE COAST  CREDIT UNION  i  KERN'S PLAZA  Hwy 101 & School Rd.  886-8121  Tues.-Thurs.  10 am-5 pm  Friday 10 am-6 pm  Saturday 10 am-2 pm  CLOSED MONDAY  TEREDO SQUARE  Teredo St., Sechelt  885-3255  Temporary  Here's a remedy for those busy summer days.

Charest  Gouvemement du Canada  Ministre d'Etat a la Jeunesse  Jean J. Charest  Canada Coast News, June 8,1987  A parade of Classic Cars brought many guests to Gibsons' Pioneer Tea last Saturday. Mr. Francis J.  Wyngaert is shown here with 'Chauffeur' Philip Gaulin and his 1947 Dodge truck.      ���Fran BurasMe photo  George    in    Gibsons  Self motivation school  by George Cooper, 886-8520  An item in an international  newspaper of recent date tells of  A.S. Neill's Summerhill School  which is still in operation and  run by his daughter, Zoe.  Criticism on one extreme called the school utterly permissive  and on the other Utopian. Neill  founded his school in the  mid-1920's in protest of the  repressive Scottish school  system of his youth.  Students in Summerhill could  decide whether they would attend classes or not. But there  were rules, rules that the  students learned to form  themselves at their weekly  meetings. And these rules they  bound themselves to keep, at  least until another meeting.  Jonathon Croal in his 'Neill  of Summerhill: the Permanent  Rebel' said that the graduates of  the school did not turn out to be  the innovators Neill had hoped  for. Rather they were tolerant  and sincere, easily related to the  opposite sex and were never  anxious about their work.  Summerhill had a vague echo  here on the Sunshine Coast in  1965 when a gentleman named  Barker gained the interest of  some parents and others to back  him in what he called a Summerhill type of school.  WANTED  Used Furniture  and What Have You  AL'S USED  FURNITURE  We buy Beer Bottles  886-2812  wmmmmm��mkmmB  Housed in a vacant residence  on Highway 101 situate between  Flume Road and the Provincial  Campsite, Barker conducted his  school for a year or two  (memory falters there) and then  went his way.  Some who were familiar with  his school thought he really  taught a "do your own thing"  only and missed the point of the  real Summerhill; namely,  responsibility for one's actions  and concern for the rights of  others.  One visitor to Barker's school  said to me, "A kid ran out from  the building, spit on my shoes  and hared off out of sight. My  shoes didn't matter. I was going  to clean them anyway. But what  kind of self-motivation was  that, eh?"  CAST-OFFS  Some of us cast-offs of the  education system wonder why  the teachers of the present day  set out, under the guiding hand  of the federation, to 'work to  rule'.  In our day we worked most  enjoyably when we opposed the  rules.  For instance one of the few  rules of the 'department' of  education that was at all precise  said to read a portion of the Bible each day but not to comment upon the passage. We  declined to read for a number of  stated reasons but this caused  scarcely a ripple in the department and only a few in the community.  In the same manner flag  ceremonies were opposed or  rather, neglected. Think nothing of these, said Charlie  Ovans, the federation secretary,  for they are only placed in the  regulations at the insistence of  pressure groups. But you don't  have pressure groups nowadays,  do you, demanding this or that  hobbyhorse be stabled in your  curriculum.  And school rules! What a  field day they provided for us  not-working-to-rule teachers.  "Stand at the junction of the  north and west corridors (runways) to control traffic in the  two-minute interval at class  changes!"  Not blooming likely. Besides  the principal would never cut  his roots to get out of his space  traveller's chair in time to  check. And the vice-principal  would be busy all day listing  names of those going up and  down staircases.  We worked against every rule  we could find, and found it  charged us with a vigour that  brought our classwork alive.  And we cared nary a whit that  we were revolting.  Working to rule? How apathetic, how cringing. Kowtowing of the meanest kind.  Show the old spirit. Don't work  to rule.  ELPHIE GRADS  Donard MacKenzie graduated last week from the  University of Victoria with a  Bachelor of Fine Arts Theatre  degree. He is the fifth child of  Ian and Agatha MacKenzie's  family to graduate from university.  Donard, his brothers and  sisters, Francis, Eileen, Ian and  Brenda would like to thank the  teachers of Gibsons Elementary  and Elphinstone High School,  where they received all their early education, for the help and  encouragement and necessary  skilled instruction that enabled  them to succeed at the different  universities they attended,  UBC, SFU, and UVic.  Don't let  British Columbia's heritage  slip into the past  The story of British Columbia  goes back a long way. You can trace it in  Indian villages, pioneer homesteads and  even everyday items such as old fences  and gates.  But many of these relics from our  past may soon be past saving. That's why  the Honourable Bill Reid, Minister of  Tourism, Recreation and Culture has  initiated a very special heritage project.  Project Pride:  The Future Of Our Bvst.  Project Pride acknowledges that  we have a rich history of which we can  be very proud. But it also recognizes an  urgent need to preserve that history.  Since 1977, when the Heritage  Conservation Act was passed, there have  been many developments in the field  of heritage conservation. Over the past  10 years, we've gained a lot of practical  experience, and have come to realize  that we must review our current heritage  conservation policies and programs.  That's where you come in.  Come To An Important  Community Meeting.  During May and June, many  communities will be holding meetings  on Project Pride.  This will be your opportunity to  voice an opinion on heritage conservation  in your area.  You can participate in one of  two ways:  ��� Attend the meeting in your community  and make a verbal and/or written  presentation OR  " Send your views in writing to the  Chairperson of the Project Pride  Task Force, 333 Quebec Street,  Victoria, B.C. V8V1X4  (phone Victoria 356-1195).  After the hearing,your community  will forward your views to a Task Force  which will make recommendations to  the Minister for new heritage policies  and programs.  Please join in.Together, we can  take care of British Columbia's past for  generations to come.  Project Pride:  Community Meeting.

To  facilitate this process, known as  Project Pride, it is holding  public forums in the larger  centers of our province. In  smaller towns like our own this  task is being left up to the local  heritage or museum societies.  Consequently, the newly formed Gibsons Landing Heritage  Society (GLHS) in partnership  with the Elphinstone Pioneer  Museum Society are holding a  town meeting this Tuesday,  June 9 at 7:30 pm in the Marine  Room, situated immediately  below the public library.  Fred Inglis of the GLHS will  chair the informal meeting.  The two primary aims of the  meeting will be to discuss how  our priceless heritage can best  be protected provincially, and  then more specifically what  ways and means we might  employ on the local level to  guarantee the preservation of  our few remaining buildings of  historic significance, etc.  During the meeting Philip  Gaulin will present a short slide  show to indicate what some  other communities have done.  It is hoped this will get those attending in the mood to ask  some questions and offer  creative suggestions.  If you've lived in the Gibsons  area long enough to feel you  have a stake in its future, or if  you're just tired of seeing our  old buildings succumb to the  flame or the bulldozer, the Gib  sons Landing Heritage Society  urges you to attend.  dibsens TtaveH  Sunnycrest Mall 886-92551  =Gary Hein, President, announces;  ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING  Comox-PowQli PJver Riding  will be held in  Courtenay on Saturday, June 20 at 11 am  Westerly Hotel  Elections of Officers and Delegates to B.C.A.G.M.

Halfmoon Bay Happenings  Fisheries talk  K.  by Ruth Forrester, 885-2418  There was a fair attendance  at the Welcome Beach Community Association's Annual  General meeting last Wednesday. Grant McBain of the  Department of Fisheries gave an  interesting talk about the situation at Halfmoon Bay Creek  and the problems faced by  salmon when they try to head  up-stream to spawn. Let's hope  that something is finally going  to be done about it.  Peggy Connor gave a report  on the progress of the Country  Fair and all seems to be going  well.  The membership gave the executive permission to continue  with their enquiries regarding  possible additions to the hall.  Election- of officers took  place with the following being  elected for the coming year.  President; Bill Vorley, Vice  President; Hersey Sewell,  Secretary; Grace Lamont,  Treasurer; Al Buckley,  Membership Chairman; Olive  Comyn, Directors; Ken Moore,  Marg Vorley, Marg Engstrom,  John Davidson and Marg  Buckley.  COUNTRY FAIR:  The Halfmoon Bay Country  Fair committee have been busy  making all the arrangements for  what promises to be a great fair.  Community participation is of  course essential to the success of  such a venture. If you would  like a booth for a white elephant  stall or a bake table for your  group or organization, give Andrew Steele a call at 885-3973  for info.  You might be someone with  special craft skills and would  like to show or sell wares. This  is the place to do so as there are  always lots of visiting tourists  enjoying a visit to the fair.  Dates are July 10, 11, and 12 at  Coopers Green. Lots of contests  to enter and there will be more  on these later.  THE BIG SALE:  July 4 is the date for the Halfmoon Bay Volunteer Fire  Department's huge annual  garage sale. Always lots of  goodies at that one. If you have  any items you would care to  donate to this good cause, one  of the fellows would be happy  lo pick up larger items. Give Bill  Ewan a call at 885-5676.  Egmont  News  Community Day  by Ann Cook, 883-9253  You are invited to come and  have a fun visit at Egmont on  Egmont Community Day, this  coming Saturday, June 13. The  day will start out with a pancake  breakfast at 8 am, a kids'  fishing derby on the government dock at 9 am, then on to  the school grounds for kids'  races, a tennis tournament, tug  o' war and other sports. Then  back to the dock to watch the  canoe races.  There will be arts and crafts  and swap tables in the hall, hot  dogs, pop and ice cream, tea or  coffee, sandwiches, and  goodies. To wind up the day,  there will be a barbeque at 6 pm  and then dance the evening  away at the Backeddy.  Saturday, June 13 is also the  day for super low tides when  many people walk the  Skookumchuck trail to watch  the tide change at the Skookumchuck Rapids.  Christian confidence  Peace - the missing piece  by David Cliff  Much has been spoken about  peace and the necessity for  disarmament in the past few  years. I feel that one key element is missing in all of these  peace marches and discussions.  CLOSE-OUT  AUCTION  for  Drizzle Enterprizes  1066 Hwy 101 & Payne Rd  Gibsons  Sat., June 13,10 am  Sun., June 14,1 pm  See display ad for details  Sale managed by:  C W AUCTIONS  Clearbrook  Ph. 859-7621 or 534-1403     J  The missing piece, of course,  is Jesus Christ. He is referred to  by Isaiah as 'The Prince of  Peace'. When He is invited into  a man's heart and takes up  residence there, then that individual begins to feel a 'peace  that passes all understanding.'  The Lord clearly spoke  through Solomon that if God's  people would turn from their  own ways and earnestly seek  Him, then He in turn would  heal our land. It is not God's  will that mankind be annihilated by nuclear war, but if  every man continues to do that  which is right in his own eyes,  then there is real danger that we  will ignore God's offer of help,  and global tragedy will result.  When God announced the  birth of the Saviour, He proclaimed 'Peace on Earth, Good  Will Toward Men.' It was  God's will through Jesus Christ  to turn men's hearts back  toward Him. This is the universal hope for world peace!  to the GIBSONS HERITAGE SOCIETY,  THE BANK OF MONTREAL, and  KATHY LOVE and ROB HAGAR  for a very pleasant afternoon at  The ��a*��tj StWW lea  - Kay, Jean and  all the appreciative guests  Excitement is building in anticipation of local summer festivities. Sechelt Celebration Day  will be June 27 with a parade,  arts and crafts, music, canoe  races and a fly past by a team of  bi-planes that do aerial  acrobatics.  Gibsons Sea Cavalcade Committee is starting to panic concerning its annual parade. Even  though all other plans are  developing smoothly, committee spokesman D'Arcy Burke  has issued a plea for help. He  stated he desperately requires a  group of at least 10 persons who  will take over responsibility of  running the parade.  He also announced that Sea  Cavalcade T-shirts will be  available this week complete  with a surprising new logo.  For both events, the newly  formed Sunshine Coast Maritime Historical Society has arranged for the 'Small Ships' to  attend. They are said to put on a  spectacular performance including mock sea battles complete with smoke and the sound  of booming cannons. In Sechelt  this event will be held either in  Trail Bay or Porpoise Bay,  depending on wind.

I  I  I  I  "WHEN  The new Industrial Relations Act ���  Bill 19 ��� is designed to build better  industrial relations in British Columbia.  That's the basic principle.  We want to protect the public  interest, and at the same time, add more  fairness to industrial relations and  create a climate for growth and much  needed new investment.  But good legislation can be made  even better.  Which is why we continued to  consult with unions, business and  individual British Columbians while  making changes along the way.  You told us your concerns and we  listened.  You asked for consultation and  clarification and you proposed  amendments.  We responded.  With major and substantial changes  that make the legislation better yet keep  the principles of the Bill intact.  : WE HAVE, FOR EXAMPLE::  ��� Changed the role and the powers of the  Industrial Relations Commissioner so  responsibility and accountability for key  decisions lie with the Minister of Labour  and elected officials.  ��� Eliminated a clause that left the  impression that "firing without cause"  could occur.  ��� Banned workers hired during a strike  or lockout from voting on a collective  bargaining issue.  ��� Ensured hiring of trainees and  apprentices in the union sector is covered  by collective agreements.  ��� Guaranteed that employees who face  discipline for refusing back-to-work  orders have full access to grievance and  arbitration procedures.  ��� Clarified a clause that was seen to  infringe on unions' right to legitimately  discipline their members.  ��� Made a number of additional  substantive changes.  Bill 19 adds up to industrial stability, new  investment, and most importantly, new  more secure jobs for British Columbians.  19. Let's make it work.  For all of as."  Lyall Hanson.  MINISTER OF LABOUR  AND CONSUMER SERVICES Coast News, June 8,1987  9.  The first of the Tetrahedron Sid Club's log cabins was disassembled last Saturday and trucked to the  closest logging road to the cabin's Bachelor Lake site by a fleet of volunteer vehicles. This Monday and  Tuesday, the components will be air lifted directly to the site by helicopter. The remaining three cabins  will be similarly transferred to their sites this month. ���Bred Benson photo  Davis Bay News _t Views  Last meeting before summer  by Jean Robinson, 885-2954  The last general meeting for  the summer of the Davis Bay/  Wilson Creek Community Association is tonight at 7:30 pm  at the hall where Laurel meets  Davis Bay Road.

SURPRISE  Sage Wright surprised June  Percival on her birthday recently, while Harry Munro and  Bruce Edwards were feted by  friends and colleagues from the  schools and the community last  Saturday. It was so much of a  surprise that Bruce and Molly  were in France at the time!  'Shiny' handed over his broom  to Nancy Brown, who is now on  duty at Madeira Park Elementary. Harry will be sorely missed  by staff and students at both  our schools. The school name,  plant stands and the display  case at PHSS are all Harry's  handiwork, done mainly on his  own time too. He'll be around,  though, and you can see him at  the   Swap   Meet   with   his  beautiful rocks. :  CAMPING TIME  The weather is right for  camping out, and this weekend  was the date for both our  Pender Harbour Guides and the  Cubs of the Sunshine Coast.

It was confirmed that  Jim will be attending the OAPO  convention in Vernon later this  month.  The carpet bowling banquet  at Pronto's was enjoyed by all.  But we were sad to hear that Ed  and Molly Connor will no  longer be in charge of carpet  bowling. It was Ed who started  the project, and we hope he will  be around for advice and  assistance in the fall.  The people who ran the bingo  were treated to a dinner at the  Casa Martinez in May, a very  tasty meal and good company.  May was a busy month, the  bus trip to Minter Gardens was  declared one of the best. In  June, Jean has a trip planned to  Stanley Park and the aquarium.  The painting class, which in  memory of Jean Calder, has  been named 'Local Colour' has  been very productive. An extremely enthusiastic group.  Another keen group is the  slow pitch ball players. About  20 of us gather at Brothers Park  every Wednesday morning. At  10:30 the cry goes up 'play ball'.  This   group   would   like   to  Drop off your  COAST NEWS  CLASSIFIEDS  at  The Sunshine  in Gibsons  until noon Saturday  "A Friendly People Place"  challenge any other group of  seniors on the Sunshine Coast  to a game. Any takers?  In the past few months there  has been an exodus of our  members to the Fraser Valley.  Jens and Florence Tolberg,  Alan and Gladys Ellingsen, Bill  and Ellen Johnson, and finally  the hard working Norm and  Mary Lambert. They will all be  sorely missed. Added to that the  death of Vega Brannan, and  Mary Eaglestone, left us with a  shortage of executive members.  So, on Monday new members  were chosen to fill the vacancies. Ernie Hume, Second Vice  President; Directors Jay Maxwell, Clive Manton and Maurice  Trumpour. Eddie Davies  volunteered to be grounds-  keeper, and Bill Nasadyk : to  look after the building. Bill  Martin, our former person  looking after the building,  resigned on doctor's orders and  we want Bill to accept our  thanks for a job well done.  The bingo committee made  donations to the Kiwanis Care  Home, and to the Society of  Research in Alzheimer Disease.  Friday card night will continue until the last Friday in  June. Starts at 7:30 and all are  welcome, regardless of age.  Joe Warwich has donated a  first aid kit and the purchase of  a trash compactor and a copying machine is being arranged.  The meeting wound up with a  delightful poem read by Mary  Leslie, the happy birthday song,  a presentation to Norm and  Mary, and entertainment and  sing-song by the Harmony Hall  Choristers.  Our meetings resume on  Tuesday, September 1 at 1:30.  Do come, and help plan for an  active fall season.

I hear  Mike's teeth grinding. He is  quite insane. I am going to die.  A shotgun blast at this range,  can almost cut you in half. I imagine my poor mother having to  clean up the mess.  But if Mike is going to  murder me, he is going to have  to do it in totally cold blood. I  look straight into his crazed,  bulging eyes. Mike's face is a  demented mask but, behind it, I  can sense a certain indecision.  He must be weighing the same  consequences that I did. "Listen  Mike," I say, in a strained voice  that sounds like somebody,  else's, "you can't shoot an  unarmed man. They'll hang you  for sure!"  "I kill ��� you, you  sonamabitch!" he hisses. I can  almost feel his finger tightening  on the trigger. I can hear my  mother sobbing in the background.  "Don't do it, Mike," pleads  my brother. But he is only a kid  across the room, too far away  to interfere.  I remember something an old  jailbird told me once and dig  down deep. "I'm not kidding  about the hanging," I say.  "There's an old elevator shaft  in Oakalla Prison, right across  from Death Row. They'll come  for you at midnight, tie your  hands behind your back, put a  hood over your head, march  you across the hall and drop  you down. Sometimes they  don't do it right and you  strangle real slow. Or else your  head rips off. You figure  shooting me is worth that?"  I am amazed by my own eloquence. Years later, I will see  that dreadful place first hand  and know the cold truth of it.  Perhaps time dissolves in the  face of such horror. My life is  dangling by a thread.

Somehow,  miraculously, I have gotten  through to him. We are playing  for final stakes and he knows it.  Gradually, the lethal pressure  on my belly relaxes. Mike  lowers the gun and clicks the  safety back on. Some measure  of rationality reasserts itself. "I  guess you right," he mutters.  The adrenalin drains back  down in me. I almost collapse  from sheer relief. The  nightmare crisis has passed.  Eventually, we all go to bed.  The next day, Mike seems  quite normal again. We even  mumble useless apologies and  he vows to go on the wagon for  good. A truce has been reached.  We drink many cups of coffee  and make the best of what is left  of a very bad Christmas.  I tell this unpleasant story to  illustrate the degree of enmity  that existed between Mike and  myself. Nothing was solved but  a sort of deadly stalemate was  established. Mike knew where  his parameters lay. I feared him  and he feared me. We had been  to the wall.  When my holidays were over,  I returned to Kitimat and went  through the motions of my job  as millwright's helper. My  mother continued to write me  optimistic letters about her life  with Mike. I read them ironically. He was a treacherous bastard as far as I was concerned. I  hated him profoundly. But my  mother, inexplicably, seemed to  love him and I couldn't do  much about that.  So I just turned my back on  the situation for a few years and  went about my business.  In 1958, I inherited a bit of  money, left Kitimat and went to  Vancouver to attend the Art  School. Dutifully, I went home  each Christmas. Mike and I  were wary of each other after  that awful confrontation. We  simply refrained from drinking.  There were no futher incidents.

'A theatre for whole Coast'  Invite guitarist Michael Dunn, saxaphonist Roy Styffe, singer Signi Murgatroyd and pianist Ken  Dalgleish to play together for a coffee house concert, and the result is two sold-out nights at the Arts  Centre and the audience left calling for more. ���Fnm Burnside photo  Booking In  "We are building a theatre  for the whole Coast," stated  Corby Coffin, director of the  Gibsons Landing Theatre Project in an interview Friday.  When asked about the theatre  location, Mr. Coffin stated that  nothing is cast in stone. "The  land is available now," he  stated, "but things can change.  Nobody knows."  He sees a theatre, wherever  situated, as a revenue generator.  "A couple from Portland were  passing through and saw the  play Bus Stop in Roberts  Creek," he illustrated, "They  ended up staying an extra three  or four days so they could see  repeat performances.  "We have a large Writers'  Festival and a Summer Play  Parade and lots of other events  that could attract people," he  continued. He sees the theatre  as being a multi-purpose facility.  He wants input from  everyone and to meet this end  he is making arrangements to  speak to any and every group  on the entire Coast. A series of  fund raising events are being  planned inlcuding car washes,  bake sales and dances.  Purdy a poet of real stature  by Montague Royal  Al Purdy-Poet For All Seasons  It has been a long time between Governor General's  Awards for Canada's indefatigable master poet, Al Purdy,  22 years to be exact. In 1965,  Purdy won kthe coveted 'Gong'  for his breakthrough collection  The Caribou Horses. During  the next two decades, he continued to produce books of fine  meaningful poetry but his work  was consistently passed over,  sometimes in favour of writers  whose product was markedly  inferior. It bagan to look as  though Purdy was never going  to get the nod again.  Then, late last year, McClelland & Stewart, Purdy's  long-time publishers, released a  mammoth compilation of his  best poems over the last 30  years. It steamrollered the competition. Recently, Al Purdy  stepped up to the podium and  received the Governor General's  Award for the second time. It  was richly deserved.  Purdy Collected (M&S) is an  impressive book indeed. Here  are the creative out-pourings of  Purdy's most productive years,  arranged in roughly chronolog-  tieaborder? When- one considers ^  that many poets (such as Matthew Arnold), owe their fame to  a single poem, the sheer volume  of successful works assembled  here, is nothing short of  remarkable.  Purdy, in common with all  prolific writers, has produced  his fair share of clunkers over  the years. Sometimes his  sprawling, open-ended style has  Festival  tickets  The Kiosk's open and tickets  are on sale for the fifth Festival  of the Written Arts.

Full credit  must be given to editor, Russell  Brown, for successfully winnowing out the duds from the  live ammo in the vast arsenal  that is Purdy's body of work.  Certainly there are minor items  here but this is unavoidable in  such a wide-ranging collection  and even Purdy's lesser pieces  have their moments. All the  Purdy classics are firmly in  place. There are a surprising  number of them and they form  the set pieces of the book.  Russell Brown has adopted a  fairly straight forward approach  in compiling what amounts to  Purdy's life's work up to this  point. He has simply taken most  of Purdy's published books, excised the weaker poems and arranged the rest in order of  publication.  Performance  SAM, A One Man Performance  by Gordon Wilson  Gordon Wilson, well known  in local theatre circles, will be  performing at the Arts Centre in  Sechelt on Saturday, June 13 at  8 pm. If you haven't seen any of  Gordon*s~ previous shb ws,; 4  you're in for a treat as you take  a 30 to 40 minute sojourn with  old Sam and his nostalgic,  humourous recollections. The  performance will be preceded  by two or three poems read by  Allan Crane. This evening's  entertainment is for the benefit  of the Arts Council. Suggested  donation is $3. Refreshments  will be served and Gordon will  be glad to discuss his concepts.  Brown goes all the way back  to Purdy's earliest Ryerson  chapbook Pressed On Sand, to  show the poet's development  and the first poem in the collection Rattlesnake, even pre-dates  this publication. As the poems  progress up the years, they  demonstrate Purdy's growing  control of his chosen discipline  and the prodigal range of his interests. They also mirror the  range of his travels to such exotic spots as Samarkand,  Greece, the High Arctic and the  Galapagos Islands.  Never one to rest on his  laurels, Purdy has included a  dozen recent poems to prove  that the muse has by no means  deserted him. The best of these  Pre Mortem, is a chilling yet oddly beautiful look at dying and  death. Its wisdom and profundity show Purdy at the peak of  his powers.  Purdy Collected concludes  with a long probing essay by  Dennis Lee that ably analyzes  and sums up the poet's many  accomplishments. The book  also contains an amusing  foreword by Purdy himself that  makes no bones about his fondness for a certain alcoholic  beverage. "If I were in a  rowboat on a sea of ail the beer  I've drunk in my life," he confides, "I wouldn't be able,to see  the shore."  Gibsons npfJfC A TUE?

The "wait to be seated" sign in the foyer let us know  upon entering that we would be taken care of efficiently  and promptly. And we were. We chose an available table  in one of the half-bubble windows that was colourfully  decorated with soft silk flowers. We experienced all the  sensations of being seated outside with all the benefits of  being inside and were instantly placed in a pleasant mood  for ordering.  The wine menu had a well balanced selection and we  chose one of our favourites, Momessin Export, a French  red. The opening of the bottle of wine can create a special  magic of its own if done with the correct amount of flair.  With quiet charm our hostess performed this ritual  superbly.  As an appetizer my companion selected a Caesar Salad  while I chose the Calamari. Had we not been famished we  could have split an appetizer. Each was enough for a light  meal in itself. A respectable time was left for the main  course. We felt neither rushed or neglected.  The entree my companion chose was the lobster. The  presentation was exotic, two fertile flowers on a bed of  rice. And most of all, it was properly done.  I had the scallops and steak. The scallops were presented  in a bowl of drawn butter. The steak was marinated in a  tasty sauce that allowed it to melt in my mouth while calling for more.  While we were lounging in decadence, two tables over  from us a family was enthusiastically enjoying a feast of  pizza from Pronto's long list of choices. Overheard from  their conversation was the exclamation, "They are going  to do well here."  As my companion and I gazed into each other's eyes  and quietly finished our wine, we could not help but agree.

It is extremely rare  for any location to receive the  league rights more than two  years in a row.  However, tennis instructor  Ron Knight has beaten the  odds. Based on the success of  last year's classes and the enthusiastic response from 120  local families, his Sunshine  Coast Tennis Program has been  awarded the prestigious sponsorship again for a fourth year.  The Pepsi-Wilson Minor  Tennis League is designed to bring enjoyable, high-quality tennis instruction to young people  on public courts in smaller communities. Any boys and girls  ages seven to 15, who are beginner to intermediate players, may  join. Classes are offered locally  at   Elphinstone   Secondary  School, at Hackett Park in  Sechelt and at Pender Harbour  Secondary School.  The Pepsi-Cola and Wilson  Corporations have sponsored  the minor tennis league since  1977. Each year they provide  promotional materials plus tennis racquets and balls for each  site. In addition, all participants  receive free drinks, T-shirts,  prizes and instruction books to  help make their tennis experience as enjoyable as possible.  The program is divided into  tennis weeks, each running  Monday to Thursday mornings.  Gibsons and Sechelt classes  begin June 29 and Pender Harbour groups start July 13.  Each tennis week features,  games, drills and competitions  designed to teach the basic tennis strokes. Participants also  learn the rules of the game,  scoring and tennis etiquette. On  the last day of each session,  children have the opportunity to  take part in a mini-tournament  and the Tennis Canada Performance Award Scheme. This  series of tests shows participants  how far they have progressed in  comparison with other junior  players across the country.  Children can obtain information forms and may register for  one or more tennis weeks at  Linnadine's Shoes in Sunnycrest Mall, at Trail Bay Sports  in Sechelt, or at Centre Hardware in Madeira Park.

Over the years since its  modest beginning, Operation  Trackshoes has grown from a  one day meeting involving 100  competitors, to a festive-like  weekend of social, recreational  and sports opportunities for 800  mentally or physically handicapped competitors and over  500 volunteers.  Some of the objectives of the  trackmeet are: to encourage  participation for all degrees of  handicapped, to meet new peo  ple, to travel to a new place, to  spend a weekend away from  home, competition for those  who are able, and a weekend of  social and athletic festivities.  Dimas Martins, Tracy Scou-  lar, Ronald Paul, Robert  MacLarty, Gordon Rouse, Bob  Rutledge and Edward Kauf-  mann, along with their coaches  Pat Juraschka and Shawn  Bothwell, have worked very  hard to raise the funds to attend.  A registration fee of $55 each  was donated by private and corporate sponsors and all travelling expenses were raised by the  competitors themselves through  SUPER  SCUBA SALE  \vjune 12, 13 & 14  Save  DIVING LOCKER SECHELT  Open 7 Days  A Week  885-2999  Custom Boat Tops  3 Day Service (max)  With Appointment  Refits - All Repairs  Windows Replaced, etc.  Your complete upholstery centre  Boat Hauling  Motor Carrier Licenced & Insured  COMPLETE  FOAM SHOP  FIBERGLASS  SUPPLIES  PLEXIGLAS  W.W.

"The expanded boundaries  of the park will help to preserve  the natural beauty of the area,"  Strachan said, "and will also  offer increased recreation opportunities in a natural park setting."  The park now includes  Brown Lake and surrounding  area, seven unsurveyed islets in  the Sechelt Rapids, and a parcel  of land across from the original  park on the east coast of the  rapids.  The total area of the expansion amounts to 88 hectares.  "Brown Lake was included  for the obvious advantages of  its fishing and swimming opportunities," the minister explained.  The area surrounding the  lake will act as a buffer between  the lake and nearby private property, while the area on the east  coast of the rapids has been u>  eluded to preserve the view  from the viewpoints in the  original park.  iltiiiSiliMIISpIifil  iiiilllllllllliiiK  Write or call collect for your free brochure  GORDON ROSS  661-2332  PO Box 1068  Vancouver, BC  V6C 3E8  A winning attitude.  :::c^m...:-:,Tm��; tables   -  Am  Tues.

Even with  ��$the amendments, it is still a bad  *^-bill. The. amendments clearly  ����show that the government did  >��not listen to or consult with the  ^people most affected by the  Labour Bill.  How can this bill bring  stability to the workplace?  Throughout the bill there is still  a significant imbalance between  labour and management with  employers having the upper  hand. How can this create a  healthy labour-management  climate to encourage economic  growth?  I would ask our MLA Harold  Long, to justify his support of  , Bill 19, given the enormous  f powers given to Industrial Relations Commissioner Ed Peck  -- which virtually does away with  ^ collective bargaining in this pro-  * vince. This bill is unfair and will  not get the support it needs to  work.  As for the injunction that Attorney General Brian Smith has  applied for, let's hope that the  courts will not grant this injunction that would be another tool  for the Socreds to use to muzzle  any opposition to the government's actions, now or in the  future. A truly frightening proposition.  Brenda DeGraag  Powell River, B.C.  Range discussed  at peace meeting  Editor:  Underwater mines, torpedoes  and rockets are tested in  Georgia Strait out of Nanoose  Bay, Vancouver Island.  Though no nuclear warheads  are tested, the range gets regular  visits from ships and subs which  do likely carry such weapons.  The subs are driven by  nuclear reactors and are banned  for safety reasons from entering  populated centres like San Francisco.  These are some of the points  from a public slide show by  Laurie McBride and Doug  Urner at Roberts Creek School  tonight at 7:30 pm.  The show and question  period will be followed by a  Sunshine Coast Peace Committee meeting.  Iris Griffiths  Egmont  Unfair political practice  ��� Editor:  In the last provincial general  - election 1,481 voters in the constituency of Mackenzie registered to vote on election day.  Left off the voters' list, they  were exercising a right enjoyed  in most other provinces, a right  that the Social Credit govern-  '* ment is planning to wipe out in  >: British Columbia.  Across B.C. over 157,000  people voted in this manner in  1986. In the Mackenzie riding  over six per cent of all votes cast  on election day were registered  at the polling station. But if the  provincial government has its  Talking  books  available  Y  The  Audio   Books  Service  provides reading material that  has been recorded onto cassette  tapes for use by persons who  enjoy reading, but are unable to  do so for some reason.  The books are made available  . by the Library Services Branch  :' of the Ministry of Provincial  Secretary and Government Services and are distributed to individual users by mail, postage  free.  Co-ordination of this service  for the Sunshine Coast is handled, under the auspices of the  Sunshine   Coast   Community  Services Society, by volunteers  Alice Albrecht and Doug Third.  Approximately 200 volumes  are available here at any one  time, of which about 125 are  out  on loan.  The remainder  await recycling to users.  Currently 22 people are using  - the service on the Coast. Bet-  ' ween 100 and 150 books are  distributed monthly, depending  on the season.  Each month some volumes  are returned to the Provincial  Services Branch central store for  exchange, to provide a continuous supply of new titles, including special requests.  Talking books are chiefly of  interest to people who were avid  readers until some disability interfered with this pastime. Users  must supply their own cassette  players (except for a brief trial  period, if desired), and must be  able to manipulate the tapes  themselves or have someone  available who can do this for  them.  Anyone interested, for themselves or on behalf of someone  they know, should call Alice at  885-5711 or Doug at 885-2458.  way, voters like these, missed by  our sloppy voter registration  system, will be denied the right  to register and vote on polling  day.  The solution, of course, is to  improve our system of voter  registration. But the small improvements in Bill 28, the Election Amendment Act, in no way  compensate for removing  voters' rights to register on election day.  Instead of disenfranchising  citizens who are left off the  voters' list, we should develop a  full enumeration at the beginning of each election. For the few  people missed by this process  the right to register on polling  day must be maintained.  B.C. has a long and unfortunate history of unfair election  practices, like redrawing the  political map to favour Social  Credit. By giving us less than  full voter registration at each  election, and denying people the  right to register on voting day,  Bill 28 writes another sad  chapter in that history.  Gordon Hanson, MLA  New Democrat Spokesman on  Fair Election Practices  Long and  the short  Editor's note: a coy of the  following was received for  publication.  Harold Long, MLA  Parliament Buildings  Victoria, BC  Dear Mr. Long:  With reference to the current  industrial relations atmosphere  in our province a bit of dog-  genel:  Your party, Long,  is very wrong"  Daily, we read of organized  crime, 'teen gang' robberies,  and deplore them. Why can't  others be like us, just quiet! Chare we?  We just got entangled in the  sticky web of crime. Our vacation bus, returning from Reno,  was delayed at the border, and  an ordinary 10 minute inspection turned into a long, long  wait  Two passengers were detained, and charged with smuggling eight bottles of liquor. Four  other people were allowed to  pay for a small over-amount  each, at a terrific tariff. The  two, if found guilty, and there's  not much doubt of it, will be  finger printed and 'mug-shot'.  It is a criminal offense. They  should be 'black listed'.  Saying this will bring an outcry from the do-gooders and  shyster-type lawyers. 'Violation  of rights' will be quoted, among  other things.  What about our rights, the  quiet ones? Why shouldn't the  bus companies have the right to  refuse entry of known criminals  into a vacation bus? After all,  the act of smuggling caused a  delay in bus connection to  others from Prince George,  Maple Ridge, Sechelt and  Squamish.  Is this an example, from the  quiet ones to the teens of our  generation?  Is our respectability just a  mask, are we all as greedy and  as under-handed as that?  We resent that slur, and we  don't want to be smeared by the  sneaky. We don't want to travel  on the same bus as customs  evaders. We believe in our  rights, too!  We think a convicted  criminal should lose those  'rights' and be put on a 'black  list'.  This smuggling, etc. is not being condoned at Customs.  Goody, goody! These are our  taxes, too, and must be collected. So, off to jail with the  smugglers now, and enter  names, faces and prints on the  black list.  Then we can ride in peace,  and arrive on time. We're getting quite a reputation!

By the time Michele de  Nostradamus died in 1566, he  had published hundreds of  predictions in the form of four  line stanzas called quatrains.  The man didn't restrict  himself to telling his uncle that  he was looking at a rocky time  in his marriage. Oh no. This guy  dealt only with major historical  events like the French revolution, the fire of London, and  the end of the world.  Most of us have a hard  enough time taking a realistic  look at the time we're living in.  Personally, I have no desire to  foresee the disasters of times to  come. "Sufficient unto the day  is the evil thereof," etc. It's no  wonder poor old Nostradamus  became a little peculiar in his  later years.  He claimed to make his predictions on the basis of astrolp-.  gical forecasting, and in fact,  even warned his son away from  dabbling in astrological predictions. Either an incredible  amount of astrological knowledge has been lost over the last  400 years or he was bluffing. I  know of no modern astrologer  who can name people who will  be born hundreds of years later  or describe what will happen to  them before they have a birth  chart to work with.  In terms of world events,  there are general tones that can  be seen ahead of time. Many  astrologers, including myself,  are telling family and friends to  pull out of the stock market  before the end of this year. We  may or may not be right.  The question is, what is the  point of predictions? Can we  change these things or are they  foreordained? I can only believe  that if we are given the gift of  being aware of the future, it is  for the purpose of changing it in  some way.  You can predict that it will be  a cold winter in Fort St. John.  You may not be able to change  that fact, but you can ensure  that you have lots of warm  clothes and fuel, the car is tuned  up and has a heater, and there's  lots of food in the house, so that  if you can't get out you won't  starve. In those ways you have  controlled the impact of the  'foreordained future'.  When I see an extremely  stressful time coming up in a  person's life, I usually advise  them to get onto vitamins and  take good care of their physical  health. I may recommend that  they start into some kind of  therapy or support group, or  start seeing a massage therapist  on a regular basis. All of those  moves will ensure that they are  in the best possible shape to  handle the stress I see coming in  a constructive manner.  Nostradamus wrote in Century Ten, Quatrain Sixty-Seven:  The earthquake shall be so great  in the month of May,  Saturn, Capricorn, Jupiter,  Mercury in Taurus,  Venus also, Cancer, Mars  in Zero,  Then shall hail fall bigger than  an egg.  On May 22,1988, Saturn is in  Capricorn, Jupiter and Mercury  in Taurus, also Venus is in  Cancer with Mars at Zero  degrees Pisces.  I'm interested in watching  what happens around that time.

Many of us own some kind of  camera and; it's a marvellous  tool to keep memories alive.  However, no matter how simple  or sophisticated the. camera: it's  only a collection of glass, plastic  and metal, that records what we  point it at.   i  As a professional photographer, I know too well, that it  is not the camera that takes the  picture. It's the person behind  the camera, that determines the  outcome. We! all look around us  and we are lucky if we have  good eye sight, because there's  so much to see. Seeing, though,  involves more than our eyes, it  is an emotional experience.  Mary Christmas is an artist  with her canjtera, because she  has the gift pf seeing. Her pictures, with their delicate colours  and refreshing compositions,  tell a story, communicate a feeling and one doesn't get tired of  looking at them.  She acquired that wide open-  eyed look at her surroundings,  growing up in the foothills of  the Sierras in; northern California roaming the land with her  father Don, a game warden for  many years, and learning sand  painting from her late mother  Genie.  Now, she has been a Canadian and a Sunshine Coast resident for many years. Encouraged by her husband Peter, master  stone mason and man of many  talents, she pursues her  photographic art with intense  dedication, recording the beauty  in simple things: the play of  light on a rippted beach, the pictorial setting of some old barns,  the texture of weathered cedar,  the tranquility'of a single water  lily  against  the  darkness  of  BLANKET CLASSIFIED ADVERTISING  These Ads appear in the more than 70 Newspapers ol the B.C. and Yukon Community  Newspapers Association and reach more than 900,000 homes and a potential two million readers.  $129. for 25 words ($3. per each additional word) Call the COAST NEWS at 885-3930 to place one.

This is art for all of us to enjoy.  It doesn't require any explanation, nor the abacadabra of art  critics.  Professional photographers  and advanced amateurs mostly  display their own photographs.  I have them all over the place,  but I bought one of Mary's  custom printed enlargements  for a special reason and hung it  above one of her. unique sand  paintings, where I can see it  from my lazy chair. I look at it  often to remind me that all my  expensive gear is only a collection of tools, like a set of  brushes, painting knives and  tubes of paint. As a matter of  fact it would do no harm if my  professional colleagues would  put one of Mary's prints on the  wall for the same reason.  When she told me the price  she charges for her beautiful  photographs, I suggested that  she could make much more with  a little professional promotion.  It was the wrong suggestion; her  smile disappeared and I got a  decisive "No" for her answer.  "If people enjoy my pictures, I  want to make them affordable  for those who cannot buy art,  so they too can enjoy some of  the beauty I saw." That answer  is typical for Mary Christmas.  A visit to Mary and Peter's  homestead on Lockyer Road is  a delight in itself, but don't call  her on Tuesday, Wednesday or  Thursday. On those days Mary  Christmas provides care and  cheer to> a group of seniors  ("nice people''she calls them) at  the Aldersprings Day Centre in  Gibsons. That's another facet  of this multi-talented woman.  A selection of Mary  Christmas' photography will be  exhibited in the display window  of Suncoast Agencies' office in  Gibsons from June 15 through  June 25 and Mary will show her  work in person at the upcoming  Arts and Crafts Show in Sechelt  on June 27.  Birthday stories  by Deborah Pageau  I love to listen to birth stories.  They are milestone stories, told  with a clarity and realism that  the years only seems to sharpen.  Anyone who would like to send  me one, please do. Here are a  few snippets.  We sat on the porch, she a  grandmother, myself a new  mother. "How old were you  when you had your last baby?"  I asked. "Eighteen." she said.  "What did you do then?" I asked, "...started to live." she said.  "How old were you when  you had your last baby?" I asked another. "Forty-two." she  answered. "What did you do  then?" I wondered. "I sat down  and looked back over my life  and wondered where it had  gone to so fast."  "When did your wife have  your last baby?" I asked a man.  He looked into the distance and  on into the past. "I guess she  was 38." He looked thoughtful,  almost sad. "Three kids was a  nice family," I offered encouragingly. His gaze turned to  me. "After they took my kidney  out, we never had any more." I  didn't know what to say. He  nodded then, as if in silent  response to an unheard conversation.,. "I guess three kids was  enough..."  "How long has it been since  you had a baby?" I asked. "My  Pacific build-up  youngest is 20 years old this  month!" she replied proudly.  "Did you ever wish you could  have had more?" "No..." she  shook her head, "but I always  wondered if I would." "I guess  you feel freer now that that  stage of your life is over," I suggest.  She fixed a moist-eyed  challenge on me, "It just isn't  the same anymore. I always  thought I'd be glad when the  risk was gone, but...what am I  now that I can't have babies?"  "Are you having any more  babies?" I boldly asked. "No"  she looked at the floor sadly)  and then directly at me. "It was  a hard decision, and I was really;  afraid that I would regret it, but'  now that it's done, I feel relieved." "How did you know that  you wouldn't ever want any  more?" I probed. Again, the  sadness. "It was really hard for  me...I felt so bad most of the  time. Nothing I did seemed to  be enough. I'd rather do something  that  I  can  feel good  about." she shrugged. "If it  was so hard, why are you so  sad?" I asked. Again she looked at me, this time anger in her  eyes: "I wanted more than just  one! I just don't think I could  put myself through it all again."  "The  second  one  is  always  easier!"   I   chortled.   Those  eyes..."Will you guarantee me  that?" she asked, and turned  away.  Continued from page 2  military operations, including a  possible Trident submarine  base. After each failure,  another referendum has been  urged.  The recent coup in Fiji also  seems to have had tacit US support. It has been suggested that  one of the motives for the coup  was to overturn the nuclear  weapons free zone declared by  the new Fijian government.  Widely condemned, the coup  has received mildly favourable  comments from Washington.  Significantly, the former Prime  Minister of Fiji, defeated in the  recent election, visited CINC-  PAC in Honolulu shortly  before the coup, and it is known  that an important US official  visited Fiji just two weeks prior  to the event.  What about Canada? Zarsky  pointed out that as a key Pacific  ally of the US, this is one country which could moderate this  aggressive US maritime  strategy. Unfortunately "you  seem to be falling right into line,  as witness the work at Nanoose  Bay. You don't seem to realize  the dangers involved. While it's  not realistic to imagine a neutral  Canada, it's certainly NOT  helpful to be such a willing accomplice. The work at Nanoose  is clearly destabilizing, serving  to undermine the security afforded the Soviets by their sea-  based ballistic forces. To pose a  threat to these forces by aggressive anti-submarine warfare  preparations, is to push the  Soviets closer to a hair-trigger  readiness, the worst possible  condition."  She is also concerned about  Canadian government' moves  toward an Arctic submarine  fleet, suggesting that a better  strategy would be to convene a  circum-polar security conference and to work to create an  Arctic nuclear weapons free  zone. "Canada should be using  diplomacy and international  law, not falling into the trap of  trying to assert military  'strength*. Diplomacy not technology is the way to go."  Zarsky is co-author of American Lake, Nuclear Peril in the  Pacific, (Viking-Penguin,  1987).

We've CotaFjoorJo___  by Ruth Forrester  Something quite fascinating  is happening on Redrooffs  Road right now. A few weeks  ago a little hummingbird decided to build its nest on a bamboo  windchime at the door of Tor  and Mary Orre's house. They  watched with interest as the  mother sat on the two tiny eggs,  then one morning the two  babies hatched.  For about three days the  mother was busy constantly  feeding the two little beaks  which popped up out of the  nest. Suddenly the mother just  disappeared. Some type of  predator must have gotten her  because they are most attentive  to their young. So there were  two poor wee baby hummingbirds with no one to feed or  care for them.  Tor decided that he just  couldn't let them die, so he has  been feeding them regularly  with an eye-drop containing a  nectar formula to which he adds  a drop of cow's blood. This was  from advice given in a book on  hummingbirds. It seems they  need the blood for protein.  Tor has become a very  devoted  'Dad' to these little  ��� guys, and so far they're doing  just fine. They are now about  : two weeks old so he will have to  '. keep this up for another two or  : three weeks.  Instead of listening for the  ' hum of their mother's wings as  a sign of feeding time their little  heads pop up looking for food  : whenever they hear the door  opening.  In the evening when it starts  ; to get cool, the Orres bring the  nest indoors and tuck the wee  ones in with some cotton batting to keep them warm.  We are all rooting for these  little birds and hope that they  survive to fly off on their own  when the time comes.  But in the meantime, isn't it  JobTrac  fund here  $125,000 has been made  available to the Sechelt Forest  District out of the S80 million  provincial employment subsidy  program called JobTrac.  The forestry project will train  and employ 10 individuals who  are presently on income assistance at $7 per hour in "silviculture activities which are incremental to basic and intensive  goals under the ministry's five  year Forest and Range Resource  Program."

A sponsor will be  allowed up to $200 per participant week to cover transportation, equipment, materials and  supplies, and supervision and  administration. A sponsor is yet  to be selected.  great to know that these good  people care about the little guys  who only measure not much  more than an inch right now.
