 r��-��j"�� ,4  if r UW/  Published on the Sunshine Coast      25* per copy on ne^s stands    July 27,1987 Volume 41 Issue 30  Sechelt Inlet  Berris study  approved  by Ken Collins  i ft i j#. .  i.n    i.    i i in MiiirJuWri'rnirriH  .1  The Caravan Stage Company made a grand entrance to Gibsons  last Tuesday with their colourful handmade horse-drawn wagons.  Before study is done  A large crowd turned out to welcome the touring company which  travels at a rate of two to three miles per hour.       ���Ken Collins photo  SCRD slams restructuring  by Ken Collins  Gibsons has no right to study  restructuring, Director Brett  McGillivray told Gibsons representative Alderman Norm  Peterson, at last Thwsday's;  Sunshine Coast Regional  District meeting. "Restructuring Study is a misnomer," he  said, "It is a process that ends in  a vote. It is undemocratic and  something to be concerned  about."  "Who says we have to vote  on a study?" countered Peterson.  The sometimes heated discussion arose from Director Gordon Wilson expressing concern  that within the regional district  all people are impacted by any  change. He proposed a joint  meeting between Gibsons,  Sechelt and the regional district  and offered to chair the meeting  as an independent party.  "It is not perceived that the  agenda being played out is help-  : ing ; the;^orderlyprogress of  government," he said;3^:  "You can't tell the players  without a program," quipped  Board Chairman Jim Gurney,  utilizing a line from a Miami  Vice episode where the hero,  gun still smoking, coolly surveys  the scene of destruction around  him.  Wilson asked Peterson for an  indication of Gibsons willingness to sit down at such a  meeting.  "I don't know if we would be  participating with the meeting  until the study is done," said  Peterson. "We have never  discussed restructuring on a  council level. We couldn't argue  one way or another without  some facts." 7^  '���'���*���    :��� ��� ��� i-;'���'������������"*''>' ������"���������>���   *+'-.& *'*>:^.*&8tip.A-.  Chairman Jim Gurney passed,  the gavel jn order to comment.  He stated he felt there was a  publicity campaign to promote  the idea of restructuring. He felt  it would be inappropriate for  him to chair the proposed  meeting but supported the idea  of Wilson doing so. He did concede that if people decided on  restructuring knowing the full  consequences and ramifications, he would support them.  "I am here to represent them,  not to rule them," he declared.  Director   Shaske   also   sup  ported Wilson chairing the  meeting. "Wilson has the least  interest of all the players," he  said. "And," thumping his fist  vigorously on the table,  asserted, "people think we are  ���rafter power. If you think it is  power you get, forget it. If you  want power you build a business. That's where you get  power!"  Wilson suggested people were  not getting good government.  In defining the purpose of his  proposed meeting he said, "I  believe people in these areas  deserve better government than  they are getting right now." He  also expressed concern over the  morale of the electorate. "This  constant bickering has left people totally turned off," he said.  The Sunshine Coast Regional  District has decided to authorize  $15,000 for the Catherine Berris  and Associates' revised proposal for another Sechelt Inlet  study. This is of course, subject  to the approval of the Task  Force and the issue of tendering  will be put to them.  "May I suggest you selectively tender," said Board Chairman Jim Gurney.  Director Wilson is confident  Catherine Berris is the only one  literate in Terra-Soft manipulation. "I would point out that to  my knowledge she is the only  firm with Terra-Soft  capabilities."  Sechelt representative Alderman Kolibas questioned the uniqueness of Berris. "It seems  unusual she is the only one,"  she stated.  "She is doing the lion's share  of work for the senior  ministry," said Wilson. "There  is nothing under the table I am  trying to do."  Earlier on the agenda, the  regional board received a letter  from Premier Bill Vander Zalm  stating no further funding  would be available this year. In  the letter the premier states  Director Wilson had requested a  provincial contribution 'towards the $75,000 required to  complete the first phase of the  Sechelt Inlet Coastal Strategy.'  Mr. Vander Zalm noted that  the Ministeries of Forest and  Lands, Municipal Affairs, Agriculture and Fisheries, and En  vironment and Parks were  already taking active roles in the  Foreshore Advisory Committee  and are providing available staff  and information resources to  the strategy.  He further stated, "It should  be noted that we made it a  priority to respond to the  recommendations put forward  by Mr. David Gillespie, Commissioner of the Inquiry into  Finfish Aquaculture in British  Columbia, for larger scale  coastal resource identification  studies and considerable provincial dollars have and are being  expended in this direction."  He went on to say, "As you  know, one such study already  completed included Sechelt Inlet. The Ministry of Agriculture  and Fisheries is continuing with  water quality studies in the Inlet."  He closed by saying Rita M.  Johnston, Minister of Municipal Affairs, is considering an  innovative program starting in  the next fiscal year which could  possibly provide financial support for the type of initiative  Wilson proposed for Sechelt.  "I know the minister will be  very pleased to provide you with  more information on this program once it has been put in  place," the letter stated.  Director Wilson stated it was  a "very, very positive letter,"  while Chairman Jim Gurney  thought the second to last  paragraph which spoke of Mrs.'  Johnson's possible program  was very positive.  Three budget approach  Shaske makes budget proposals  by Ken Collins  John Shaske, chairman of the  Sunshine Coast Regional  District (SCRD) Finance Committee wants to encourage  public participation in the  development of the 1988  Regional District budget.  "Residents of Area F have  often expressed to me their concern that they are not adequately briefed about SCRD money  matters," he reported at Thursday's Regional. District board  meeting.  "If they are informed, they  are either confused by, or question the accuracy of the  report," he went on to say.  He suggested a questionnaire.  Should they: a) increase,  decrease, or equal 1987's taxation revenue; b) increase,  decrease, or equal 1987's total  expenditure; and, c) initiate funding of new functions and projects.  Then staff should prepare  three budgets: one as suggested,  a plus 10 per cent budget, and a  minus 10 per cent budget.  Then on three consecutive  evenings all three draft budgets  should be reviewed by the  Board in Committee, a provisional budget prepared, presented to the board, adopted,  refined, and discussed so that  they may subsequently request a  1988 budget.  "The end result will be a 1988  budget that is as worthy of compliment as this year's," said  Director Shaske. In his opening  statements he said in the first  half of this year the SCRD had  only spent 42.8 per cent of its  budget.  Director Gordon Wilson asked what if they had spent 20 per  cent of their budget but 80 per  cent of the work was not starting until fall.  "I would be hard pressed to  find a constituent who said to  spend more." Wilson also said,  "We have to find a way to  reduce the cost of  government."  Brochures and breakwater  Gibsons lists  economic priorities  "We are the fastest growing  regional district in B.C.,"  countered Board Chairman Jim  Gurney, "When you talk of  reducing taxes you are talking  about winding down government. I'm not sure that's what  people want."  Cedars Golf  One of the most looked-forward-to social happenings on'  the Coast is happening. It is the 7th Annual Cedars Invita-f  tional Golf Tournament. This is a full day of golf, games,  dinner and dancing.  This year's event will take place on August 15 at the Sunshine Coast Golf and Country Club, starting at 9 am with  registration.  Men's golf, with a shotgun start, gets underway at 10 am  and the ladies' events and entertainment will begin at 2 pm.  Prizes for all will be presented before dinner which is at 7  pm and is followed by dancing until midnight.  Sign up soon at the Cedars Pub, the number of golfers is  limited.  Local wins gold  Sechelt athlete Signi MacNeill returned home from the  B.C. Summer Games yesterday with two gold medals and one  silver. The 13 year old, who attends Chatelech, came first in  the javelin and shotput, and second in the discus. Congratulations Signi!  Corrections  Last week in the tribute to the late Rachel Henderson of  Soames Point we referred to the Grant family. It should have  read the Trant family.  Also, the name Taka given for the Indian carver is a  nickname. His correct name is Joachim Pierre.  Having settled the question of  how much of their Partners in  Enterprise funding to allocate to  the Economic Development  Commission, Gibsons Council  sat down last week and listed  priorities for their own  economic stragegy.  Each of the aldermen had  drawn up their own list, and it  was apparent that they were all  of similar mind.  The production of a new promotional brochure, which the  provincial government is willing  to cost share on a 50/50 basis,  was near the top of everyone's  list.  The other top priority item  was a -study on the financial  feasibility of a breakwater.  Alderman Norm Peterson  pointed out that the lack of a  breakwater had already cost the  town $35,000 in repairs to the  sea walk.  Other aldermen discussed the  fact that the fishing fleet has  been 'priced out of Richmond'  and Gibsons might be in an  ideal position to service them if  a breakwater was installed.  Alderman Gerry Dixon suggested a study on the financial  viability of building a hotel in  Gibsons, to be used in a similar  manner as the kiln feasibility  study which is now being use-  to attract investors.  Dixon also recommended  that council look into improving transportation to Keats  Island.  In contracting out any studies  to be done, Alderman Norm  Peterson asked that council 'try  to utilize local talent instead of  shipping the business out of  town.'  A final priority list will be  voted on at the next Planning  Committee meeting on August  11.

Let us consider a selection from  this week's offerings.  If there was a top prize for absurdity surely it should go  to Director Brett McGillivray. In chastising Gibsons for  accepting a provincial grant of $5,000 to study restructuring, McGillivray for the second time delivers himself of the  ��� following gem: "Restructuring Study is a misnomer. It is a  process that leads to a vote. It is undemocratic and something to be concerned about."  Whatever convoluted mental processes lead McGillivray  to conclude that a process leading to a vote is undemo-  ctatic is beyond our understanding. Apart from that, did  the, voters of Roberts Creek, who are unaffected by any  restructuring in place or to be studied, elect McGillivray to  tell the elected representatives of Gibsons what they can  and cannot do?  If McGillivray takes top place for pure absurdity, then  Director John Shaske must take all the laurels for a sustained performance of the absurd. Let's consult the electorate says Shaske as a preamble to an insane slide show by  means of which he wants to determine whether the voters  want taxes to go up, go down, or stay the same. The new  Shaske doctrine of budget making sees three budgets being  made and debated, one up, one down and one level. The  end result of all this will, he says, be a budget as admirable  as the present one. Would even Shaske's mother applaud  this suggestion?  Shaske explains that the voters in his area don't understand budgetary matters or if they understand, don't  believe the figures they are given. Is that a comment on the  intelligence of Shaske's electorate or on the quality of information provided by their director?  Director Gordon Wilson, having initiated the exchange  orrthe restructuring study because 'any change impacts on  everyone', then offers himself as an unbiased chairman in  a meeting to discuss a study that hasn't yet been done.  Meanwhile on the other study front, the study of Sechelt  Inlet, Wilson resolutely presses ahead. "I'm not doing  anything under the table," Wilson assures Alderman  Joyce Kolibas when she asks why only Catherine Berris  can do the inlet study. No one has suggested that you are  not well-behaved from the waist down, Mr. Wilson, but  some observers are beginning to question what's going on  from the neck up.  We learn from a letter from Premier Vander Zalm that  you asked him for $75,000 for the first phase of a study  you tried to have the Task Force approve in two stages at a  cost of $40,000 when only $15,000 had been budgeted by  the Sunshine Coast Regional District (SCRD).  Ms Berris, we are told, is the only person who has Terra  Soft capabilities, other than the SCRD itself. What are we  about here, an exercise in computer compatibility or the  environmental study of a fragile ecological body of water?  And again, why is a decision on tendering to be turned  over to Wilson's Task Force? It is not a task force policy  that work in excess of $10,000 should be tendered. It is an  SCRD policy. Why is the policy neither being followed in  this case nor changed?.. r   r ���   ���  Never one to be entirely outdone, there is the board  chairman suggesting that something called 'selective  tendering' take place. What do you think this means?  On the discussion on budget levels which followed the  Shaske performance, Gurney describes this region as being  'the fastest growing regional district in B.C.' Bear in mind  that in June of 1986 the regional board lost 30 per cent of  its electorate in the Sechelt restructuring. How can  Gurney's assertion be reconciled with that established  fact?  Gurney relinquishes the gavel to announce darkly that  there is a 'publicity campaign to promote the idea of  restructuring'. So far we count one six-inch news story to  announce the grant to Gibsons, one editorial column entitled Tor sake of argument' and two well-stated positions,  of opposition to restructuring in the form of letters to the  editor. It doesn't seem like much of a campaign.  May we also point out the editorial column was written  in response to an SCRD assertion that the future of the  Coast was being decided at an open house held on a Friday  evening in the summertime with a couple dozen people  participating'. Is that democracy?  All of the above absurdity is really occasioned by the  fact that the SCRD'does not want the status quo looked at  critically at all. For example, there are approximately  7,500 people living on the Coast in the two municipalities.  They share one planner.  There are approximately 9,000 people living in the rural  areas. They enjoy the benefit of four planners all of whom  are too busy somehow to assist Wilson with his study of  Sechelt Inlet. What on earth or sea can be more important  right now?  "This constant bickering (between the municipalities  and the SCRD) has left people totally turned off," says  Director Wilson. It would appear that the way to avoid  bickering is for the municipalities to agree with everything  that the SCRD does and never to propose to do anything  that the SCRD disapproves of.  It is time to say, with the little boy in the fable, this  emperor has no clothes. If the sitting directors refuse to  adjust to changing conditions they should be thrown out.  Their little clique has been too long in office.  f.  The Sunshine  Published by   GLASSFORD PRESS LTD.

Now, I don't know  about you, but until I started  acquainting myself with the ins  and outs of municipal politics, I  has always thought the term 'in  camera' had to do with photography. Apparently not.  'In camera' means 'in  private'. So, why don't they say'  so! After all, most of us do 'in  camera' things each day. For in"-5  stance, how many of you have  had an 'in camera' session in the  bathroom today... either to  bathe or perform other natural  functions. I bet you didn't close  the door and hang up an 'in  camera' sign on the outside!  It's an odd term isn't it?  Sounds just the opposite of  what is it. (Perhaps that's why  it's used politically). Take the  Iran-Contra Hearings for example. There are so many cameras  and photographers there that  one not versed in these  misleading terms would think  that these were the ultimate in  'in camera' hearings or  meetings. But no...these are  public. In Washington, 'in  camera' meetings are called 'executive sessions'...and that  makes sense. To most of us 'executive session' means that only  those on the executive are allowed in.  The dictionary doesn't set out  a definition for 'in camera'.  They do, however, explain 'in'  and 'camera' separately. 'In' is  a  Latin  prefix meaning  'in,  within, inside and not'. I guess  the operative word here is 'not'.  'Camera' is defined as 'a  darkened box in which images  of external objects are projected  through a suitable lens on a sensitive surface'. So, according to  the dictionary, when municipal  councils have 'in camera'  meetings they are 'not in a  darkened box in which images  of external objected are projected, etc.'.  Well, I for one, would never  ask that any member of council  ' enter a darkened box...especial-.  ly in the summer. But, wouldn't  fiHHUUUU  nm  it be easier to say 'private'?  Roger's Thesaurus does mention 'in camera' as a synonym  for 'privately'. It's right there  along with 'tete a tete', 'sub  rosa', 'confidentially' and  'covertly'. 'Covertly'! Shades of  Iran Contra, there's a term  we're all familiar with. Perhaps  in future council should say 'we  are now going to meet in a  covert manner'. At least then  we could be sure of leaks from  the session!  So now we wait for the confidential, in ^camera, sub trosa,  covert tete a tete to be done so  __r_*  ���_'_���_��� _'_'_,_ ��� _���_.  that we can find out what colours go where on our new official Community Plan and,  unless certain members specifically ask to be noted as voting  against certain aspects, we will  only see the word 'carried' on  the minutes of that 'in camera'  meeting.  It's one of those times you'd  really like to be a fly on the  wall. But, flies can't talk, and-  according to law it's none of  our business what seven consenting adults do in the 'in camera',  ;>privacy, of their, own couricif  chambers. .;'���������-..-.:-; -;-,^  ��______!  To a Packrat  It must be said of this particular packrat that he was thrifty  and that to the best of his knowledge he planned ahead.  His deposit box was a shelf in what was formerly  our woodshed. Often he could be heard there,  sometimes at all hours of the night, checking and  rechecking his holdings. These included  a comprehensive selection of bottle caps, common and  preferred  plus a large stock of broken china featured by  no less than five teacup handles, three of them gilt-edged.  True, his porcelain doorknob would be hard to move  and he had over-extended himself in clam shells.  However these liabilities were more than compensated for  by a silver teaspoon left on the beach by picknickers, and  six sardine-tin keys, complete with twisted lids.  In addition he held a much sought-after neck of  a blue glass medicine bottle. Bye and large and  things being equal, his future seemed assured  and his declining years amply provided for.  Unfortunately in this world things are seldom equal.  Under the weight of last month's snow, the shed collapsed.  His life's savings were a total loss  and what the future holds for him is anybody's guess.  Hubert Evans  Taken from Whittlings published by Harbour Publishing  ax  ���BOX  *.��*������.��  A Socred rebuttal  Code changes 'timely'  by MLA Harold Long  Actually, despite the problems we have encountered  since 1973, the Labour Code  has had its effective moments in  dealing with labour and  management, playing an important role in the settling of many  disputes. But the truth is that  times change, as has the world  we live in, and changes to the  Code were required in recognition of that.  When I recall the events of  1973, I am struck by the irony  that the then-new Labour Code  created the Labour Relations  Board. And the NDP appointed  Ed Peck as the Chief Administrative Officer of the LRB.  Yes, this is the same Ed Peck  who is now being branded as  'all-powerful' by our detractors,  and an 'iron-fisted czar' by such  uninvolved observers as Mr.  White.  Actually,   under   the   new  legislation, Mr. Peck will not be  all-powerful. Any decisions he  makes can, if requested, go  before the Minister of Labour,  who would make a final determination as to whether a decision can be upheld or overturned.  I, and government MLAs,  were well aware that we would  be subjected to severe criticisms  over Bills 19 and 20. But we  proceeded anyway, because the  legislation is in the best interests  of all British Columbians.  There is a price to pay for  anything worth having, and we  were willing to take the political  flack about the legislation. If  that had to be so, then so be it,  because we also knew the  benefits of the legislation will  far outweigh the political heat  against us orchestrated by the  NDP and big labour leaders.  If Ken Georgetti is the  'moderate' as Mr. White says he  is, then Mr. Georgetti should be  willing to see if the legislation  works before calling a general  strike, threatening to cause a  'chaotic province' that will 'lose  its markets' if the government  does not kow-tow to labour's  demands.  Instead of taking the hardline road, Mr. Georgetti could  have better served his own constituency by trying to work with  the government in the same way  we worked with so many people  prior to making amendments to  the original drafts of the legislation. The spirit of free enterprise and the proud traditions  of the labour movement can  strike a proper balance, so that  we can all move forward  together.  Mr. White suggested that we  look to West Germany, the  Netherlands or Scandanavia as  a model for our economic planning. I must say that we have  been in consultation with officials from these countries, but  with the Scandanavians most  specifically in the aquaculture  industry and with our forest industry, in terms of learning-  from them more effective;  reforestation practices and how'  to enhance our secondary  manufacturing capabilities.  One country Mr. White failed  to mention as a possible model  for British Columbia was the  United Kingdom, whose trade  union system is the one ours has  been patterned after.  I sincerely hope that we have  learned from the mistakes made  in the United Kingdom, and  how to avoid the problems that  occurred   there   because   too -  much power fell into the hands  of a few union leaders, some of '  whom became irresponsible and ".  in their zeal embraced Communism. They, along with some ;  inept politicians, were the main ;  factors which took that country ;  to the brink of economic col- ;  lapse in the 1970s. We cannot ;  allow this to happen in B.C.      : >k5_^>'  ,   mx?'!Ki  J   i    ', -.'  Coast News, July 27,1987  I Editor's Note: The following  ! letter has been written as the of-  ! ficial position of the Depart-  ; ment of Public Works, Town of  ! Gibsons.  : Editor:  In what appears to be a  ; reported all-out assault on the  ; Town of Gibsons as published  ; in the July 20, 1987 issue of the  ; Coast News, it is only right that  ;; the facts concerning the Town's  ^public utilities be stated correctly regardless of any alleged con-  7versations between Chairman  7 Gurney and Mayor Strom.  As  with  all  manufactured  I products,   obsolescence   may  ; come about due to many factors  ;* including physical stamina, en-  ;vironment, price, etc. No one  >pipe material has ever, in the  7 long term, proven to be excep-  " tional in all cases and areas. The  ��� suggestion   that   the   use   of  7 asbestos   water  pipes  in  the  ��� Town of Gibsons will result in  financial disaster, and relate to  supposed   restructuring   ambitions, is quite unwarranted and  essentially political.  As a point of public information, all water mains installed in  Gibsons since 1977 have been  either ductile iron or PVC with  one exception during 1981,  when 600 feet of six inch  astestos pipe held in stock by  the Town was used up rather  than purchasing new PVC or  ductile iron pipe.  Contrary to reported statements in the local press, the  largest supplier of asbestos cement pipe in North America,  Johns Mansville, is still in  business and Atlas Pipe of  Montreal, the only supplier of  this product in Canada is still in  business and have documented  cases of asbestos cement pipe  dug up after 41 years of use in  'like new' condition.  It is noteworthy that the City  of Edmonton is facing a two  billion dollar expense to replace  ductile iron pipes that after 10  years have deteriorated because  of soil conditions. In areas such  as Gibsons where earth returns  *9  are used in many cases on B.C.  Hydro's single phase primary  circuits supplying residential  services, severe deterioration of  ductile iron pipes can result ;  through electrolytic action. The  answer to this of course,  disregarding asbestos pipe ���  would be to use PVC. Unfortunately, PVC hasn't had a long  enough track record to be totally evaluated for its probable life  span from other influences.  Mr. Marchand, our superintendent  of works,  has  experience   with   asbestos   pipe  dating back some 25 years and !  recognizes that it is a product ;  requiring   great   care   during ���  handling and bedding-in and j  can be damaged easily by earth  movement but has other advantages that may affect this disadvantage.  An inventory of the Town of  Gibsons' water main material  indicates approximately 83 per  cent use of asbestos pipe - not  all as stated by Mr. Gurney.  The reported accusation that  the Town of Gibsons has been  consistent in their choice of  cheap materials for water and  sewage system is a major cause  of the Town's problem with  their sewage treatment plant  could be a statement with a  capability of backfiring.  The Town of Gibsons relied  on the services of a professional  consulting firm, i.e., Dayton  and Knight, to design, specify  materials and equipment and  make recommendations with  respect to what contractor built  of sewage treatment plant. The  Sunshine Coast Regional  District, we understand avails  itself of the services of this selfsame firm for similar engineering matters.  We trust that this information should put the matter in its  proper light.  R.W.

Editor's Note: A copy of the  following letter was received for  publication.  P.F. Chamut  Regional Director General  ���10th Floor, 1090 West Pender  .Vancouver, B.C.  Dear Mr. Chamut:  ;  I am writing to urge you to  retain the Fisheries and Oceans  pffice in Pender Harbour.  f; In the past few years residents  here have  seen  their  marine  RCMP station and its B.C. Forest Service station removed, all  in the name of centralization.  Together   with   the   planned  closure of the fisheries office,  this means the loss of a significant number of paying year-  found jobs which are crucial to  the seasonal economy. The re-  Suiting decrease in the level of  services available to residents,  businesses and tourists threatens  the viability of the community.  ? The planned fisheries office  move appears especially unfair  and unjustified.  Pender Harbour is by far the most active  fishery centre on the Sunshine  Coast.  With the only major  small boat harbour north of  Vancouver and some 15 com  mercial marinas, it is the principal base for the sports fishing  activity all along the east side of  Georgia Strait. It is also the  main stop-over for pleasure  boat traffic north to Jervis Inlet, Desolation Sound and the  Inside Passage. In addition, it  has become the centre of a  booming aquaculture industry,  with 23 salmon farms presently  operating in Agamemnon  Channel and Nelson Island serviced from a base at nearby  Earle's Cove. Not the least,  Pender Harbour is also home  port to the largest commercial  fishing fleet between Vancouver  and Prince Rupert.  The only logical way to monitor this activity is with an office  and boat located at its centre in  Pender Harbour. To locate the  office at a distance, especially in  Sechelt, where the level of  fishing activity is comparably  low, is to inconvenience the  public and diminish the efficiency of fisheries personnel.  I urge you to reconsider this  move and retain the local  fisheries office in its historic  location.  Howard White  Consider effects  Editor:  Through all the weird and  sometimes downright ugly  things people have done to their  properties over the years, we've  always tried to restrain our instinctive animosity with the  thought that 'It's their property  so essentially what they do with  it is their business'.  But now we're not so sure.  Both us and our nearby friends  have had new neighbours clear-  cut lots, until then beautifully  forested like ours.  The result? Many of our own  trees, on the now unnaturally  exposed edge of our lots, have  come down in storms, no longer  protected from the wind by any  neighbouring trees.  So please, next newcomer  who's thinking of clear-cutting  his lot, consider the wind  damage you'll be bringing on  your neighbour's lot!  (And also, think twice about  how long it took for those big  trees on your own lot to grow to  that size, 50 to 80 years and  more. You just can't replace  them with tiny ornamental  nursery trees!)  M.M.

Rd., across from Ken's  1 Lucky Dollar, Gibsons Landing  ; 886-8365  Caravan brings memories  by George Cooper, 886-8520  CARAVAN STAGE  The Caravan Stage show  drove in to Gibsons, with a tow  up Granthams hill, and brought  to the young folk a whole new  experience of a travelling show  with its draught horses and its  tent with scenic canvas panels.  And to the older, much older,  folk a nostalgic reminder of circus tents, carnival tents at  agricultural fairs, and, yes, the  Chautauqua tents that made the  town's summer theatre for a  few days of the year.  Live or on screen allegorical  plays are certainly not our every  day experience. And this one,  The Good Baby, with its  thundered warnings of rightist  plots, a form of terrorist campaign, 'to use religion and all  that we hold sacred to seize  power over our lives...with the  ii  It Must Be  FRESH  ITS PROCESSED RIGHT HERE  "from boat to you"  Sea  Cavalcade  Specials  Hand peeled daily on the premises  SHRIMP MEAT  Frozen in water  MEDIUM PRAWN TAILS  Frozen Vacuum Packed  CRAB MEAT  s87S.b.

And the viewers have probably sloshed about since in all  those allegorical bits and pieces  a trifle bewildered and uncomfortable. Some information in  detail in advance would have  made the evening much more  acceptable.  The Caravan shows, as their  leaflet's preamble states, focus  upon the struggle of monolithic  forces that control the lives of  people. Variations on this  theme are endless and some that  this company can explore are,  for example, the injustice done  to citizens ;interned;Jn��� World  War II, or the devious ways1 of  the hate-pedlars.  Certainly the cast performed  with gusto. Elliott, as the  evangelist, played with fine  frenzy. Our own Donard MacKenzie, did his variety, of parts  superbly. Return as often as you  can, Donard.  EXCERPTS  You haven't yet read The  Suspect by L.R. Wright? Just as  well, since these tid-bits out of  Chapter 2 won't be wearisome  to you.  You recollect this is the book  set on the Sunshine Coast but  reportedly unlikely to be filmed  here. Bunny Wright, by the  way, will be Event XI at the  Festival of the Written Arts in  Sechelt, August 16.  Wright's Chapter 2, a short  two pages, reads like a Chamber  of Commerce commercial, albeit less gushing.  For examples:  "Howe Sound, a wide blue  crack in the continent; 'Sechelt',  a native Indian word, it is said,  meaning shelter from the sea;  five hundred more hours of  sunshine on average each year  than Vancouver; grows apricot  and fig trees, even palms.  "In summer the highway is  clogged with tourists. The tempo of life markedly slower than  Vancouver and the people  strung out along the shoreline."  (Strung out?).  "The police deal mainly with  traffic accidents, some vandalism, petty theft, and  drunkenness now and then."  Gibsons Public Library has a  copy.

Jane's husband Tim and  brother Clarence were some of  the first five flight passengers as  they scouted the Sechelt Inlet  for possible logging sites.  At that time the choice was  wide and the two brothers did  well as hand loggers.  MARY'S VARIETY���  SOUVENIRS    KITCHEN WARE  COSTUME JEWELLERY  GOWER PT. RD.  Gibsons Landing  Next to Shell Station  MARY COOK,  PROP.  886-8077  Gibsons and District Fire Department, probably 1968. Cliff Mahlman (front row, right) was the recipient  of several awards including the Lieutenant Governor's Award, for long and exemplary community service at the recent 25 year reunion July 25 in Gibsons.  Cliff Mahlman honoured  by George Cooper  When the firefighters of West  Howe Sound Fire Protection  District held a reunion of present and former members on  July 25 in the Gibsons Legion  Hall, they had a second top  secret purpose for the gathering.  Top secret because it was to  be a surprise occasion to honor  one of their members, Cliff  Mahlman, a man of retiring  nature who, the organizers  suspected, might not attend if  he were to know what was coming.  Cliff may be a trifle shy of  publicity but he certainly has  never been shy of doing long  years of community service, 32  to be exact, in the firefighters,  and some of those years as well  in the district's first ambulance  service, a service he had initiated.  Cliff says, "No point in putting me in the spotlight. It is  every one of the firefighters  who deserves recognition for  the time devoted to volunteer  service to the community. And  that includes the wives who  have answered phones, warmed  interrupted meals, and put in  anxious hours while firefighters  were out on a call."  To keep him from overhearing an unguarded remark at the  beginning of that reunion evening, the committee put Cliff in  charge of the door and guest  book. And when it came time to  present awards and gifts to him,  the guest book was included as a  souvenir.  From the governor-general  came the Fire Services Exemplary Service medal with bar  and cluster for 'loyal and  meritorious service' over the 30  years.  From the Volunteer Firefighters Association of B.C.  came a certificate for longstanding service to the Gibsons  Fire Department.  Mayor Strom presented Cliff  with a Town medallion. The  West Howe Sound Fire Protection District gave Cliff and wife  Joan each a gold watch. Canadian Forest Products, where  Cliff has served as a firefighter  and as Loss Prevention supervisor, presented him with a  clock-barometer. And from the  Province of B.C. came a silver  pen with a provincial crest.  4CO>��  Sunnycrest Mall ���  886-9413 mmm L_-  ��� * ����iiv WHILE QUANTITIES tAST.

Two people who  serve others with a welcoming  smile in both nautical and  landlocked pursuits are this  month's Pender Persons, Andy  and Maud Hayes.  The Hayes arrived in Pender  Harbour almost seven years ago  from Burnaby, building a house  on Francis Peninsula. Maud  taught our little tots at the  Serendipity Playschool for two  years before starting up The  Hayestack with husband Andy.  The business expanded from a  Sears desk, magazines and gifts  Egmont alive with visitors  by Shirley Hall  Our beautiful summer continues and I have seldom seen so  many visitors enjoying themselves. The dock and marinas  are rocking with activity. The  parking lot at the Skookumchuck Narrows Provincial Park  is frequently full. In Egmont  itself, it looks as if we're  heading for a parking problem.  Maybe   we'll   need   parking  meters!  Down at the 'logs' on Waugh  Lake there are usually a few  swimmers. Even more are enjoying the 'rocks' at North  Lake. Yesterday, when we  drove by, there were at least a  couple of dozen, sunning and  splashing and having a wonderful time. The lake water is  delightful.

There was an excellent turnout at the Lady Lions' Bingo on  Wednesday. I didn't count but  I'd say there were close to 50  there. This meant bigger prizes,  of course, and there were some  happy faces. Congratulations to  the winners.  Marianne Birch has a job at  Ruby Lake Resort now, and  she's moving close to her job.  Good luck, Marianne.  And my beloved daughter,  Kathleen, has moved back from  Berkley, California. She  couldn't stand life in the fast  track anymore. She hopes to  find work on the Lower Mainland. It was lovely to have her  visiting at North Lake.  Congratulations to Mae and  Frank Kurial on their 25th anniversary. I hope you enjoy  many more happy years  together.

The Salmon Barbecue sponsored by the Gibsons Landing Theatre  Project Society before the Caravan Stage performance last  Wednesday was a sold-out success. Hot dog reinforcements had to  be brought in for the last few customers. ���Fran Burnside photo  At last week's meeting of  Gibsons Council, an application  for a business licence was  brought up by Clerk Administrator Lorraine Goddard.  The application is for a retail  outlet in Seaview Plaza, which  will have amusement machines  installed.  Planner Rob Buchan had  asked that it be drawn to council's attention because there are  apartments above the store  area, many of which are rented  by senior citizens. However,  zoning in the area allows for  such enterprises, and Goddard  told the meeting, "I don't  believe that we have any legal  grounds to refuse this application."  The issue was referred to the  next planning committee  meeting in order to have the  town planner's input.  At the same meeting, council  agreed to lower the town's  liability insurance on the marina  from $5,000,000 to $1,000,000.  Aldermen decided to wait on  making a decision to have Gibsons represented on the  Foreshore Task Force and the  Economic Development Commission (EDC), Mayor Diane  Strom agreed to discuss the  matter further with Task Force  Chairman Gordon Wilson,  when Alderman Norm Peterson  Forest fires alarming  by Teri Dawe  Sunday, July 19, a fast  spreading forest fire near Lee  Bay, was stopped by the prompt  action of Pender Harbour  Volunteer   Fire   Department,  B.C. Forest Service, and  employees of SAGA Sea Farms.  The fire burned moss covered  bluffs of scrub, fir, arbutus and  some standing timber adjacent  to SAGA's aquaculture operation.  886-2488  Proceeds aid Food Bank  m THRIFTY'S  Tues - Sat 10-4 above Ken's Lucky Dollar  ��� Fresh brewed coffee for  your office or place of  business  Call Liz at  > Coffee brewer supplied &  serviced at no charge  Audrey's  Coffee Service  OFFICE ��� RESTAURANT COFFEE  Supplies &.

That portion of Lot 'A', Block 16, District Lot 685,  Plan 7109, formerly known as Lot 1, Block 16, District  Lot 685, Plan 7109, be rezoned from Single-Family  Residential Zone 2 (R.2) to Tourist Commercial Zone  2 (C.2).  2. This bylaw may be cited for all purposes as 'Zoning Amendment Bylaw No. 555-2.'  Take notice that the above paragraph is deemed to  be a synopsis of the bylaw, and not deemed to be an  interpretation thereof.  Pursuant also to Section 958 of the Municipal Act, it  is not the intention of Council to hold a Public Hearing on Zoning Amendment Bylaw No. 555-2 as an Official Community Plan is in effect for the subject  area, and the proposed bylaw is consistent with the  plan.  A copy of the amending bylaw is available for inspection at the Gibsons Municipal  Office, 474 South Fletcher Road,  during office hours.  Rob Buchan  Municipal Planner & Approving Officer  It is believed to have started  during open burning of feed  supply bags at the industrial  sight near Daniel Point at the  mouth of Agamemnon Channel.  The manager of SAGA Sea  Farms, Murray Rudd, told the  Coast News the employee involved had been severely  reprimanded and admitted to  the company's responsibility in  the matter.  B.C. Forest Service spokesman, Greg Hemphill stated,  "The fire was still being investigated, but if the evidence  showed SAGA was burning  without a permit the Forest Service would consider .laying,  charges under the Forest Act.  Burning permits are required  throughout the Sechelt Forest  District during fire season,  April 15 to October 15.  Garden Bay Fire Chief Otto  Hein described the scene when  they first arrived with two  trucks at three o'clock, "Well it  was quite a blaze, I would say  there were two acres burning  when we arrived.  "At one point I flew over in a  helicopter and there were  flames, smoke and trees dropping everywhere. It was blowing  southeast, I would say maybe 15  knots, it just made it worse.  "There were all kinds of people coming down to offer us  help, but we had to turn them  away because it was getting  dangerous. We were hosing  down the ridge, if it had gone  over we might have lost control;'  "The bomber came in and  made eight or so passes, setting  down a perimeter the fire never  got past. We had four trucks  and 20 volunteer firemen there  at one point."  B.C. Forest Service told the  Coast News that all costs to the  Ministry of Forests on this fire  were in the neighbourhood of  $14,500. This included the  drops by the four engine DG-6B  which carries 2500 gallons of  retardant.  A number of local residents  expressed concern over this fire  because of another fire on  Nelson Island on June 11 of approximately 10 acres.  Investigation by B.C. Forest  Service indicated burning of  garbage without a permit by the  aquaculture operations at Moon  Bay on Agamemnon Channel  resulted in the fire in the logging  slash. !  The Pender Harbour Fire  Protection District is volunteer  run and no charges are levied  for attending a fire. The  operating budget is approximately $75,000 a year or $75 to  $80 per household in local  taxes, based on mil rates.

The mayor will also be talking to members of the Gibsons  Economic Strategy Committee  to determine whether there is  any interest in liaising with the  EDC.  Volunteers  needed  We are looking for a special  person, either male or female,  to act as a companion one or  two afternoons or evenings a  week. Our client is a moderately  disabled middle aged man who  is in need of social contacts and  friendship.  An initial period of 'getting  to know each other' will be  necessary, and an ongoing commitment would be preferable.  Volunteers are also needed to  assist with taking donations,  purchasing and distributing  food for the Gibsons Food  Bank. Also needed are people to  help with the operation of the  Thrift Store which supports the  Food Bank.  This is a good volunteer opportunity for anyone who wants  the experience of working with  the public and in handling cash.  It is also a great way to meet  people and contribute to a worthy community service.  If you feel that you would  like to provide either of these  services please call the  Volunteer Action Centre at  885-5881, or drop into our offices at the Dock in Sechelt to  obtain further information.

There  were many peckerpoles - skinny  sinkers that were hell to un-  choke. I cursed, fumbled and  fell in twice before 10 o'clock.  Around 11, they began doing  some sort of maintenance work  up above and there was a merciful lull in the logging. I was  sitting on the edge of the raft in  my damp gear, gazing idly up  the inlet when something enormous broke water about 300  feet away.  I'd seen killer whales before  but they were minnows in comparison with this monster. It  was a full-fledged leviathan  right out of Moby Dick, a living  grey gunboat, glistening and  enormous, heading straight for  the raft as though it planned to  ram us. I watched its progress in  awestruck fascination. Even  cynical Eddie Carrington stopped his monkey-wrenching and  stood gazing open-mouthed.  About 20 feet away, when  collision seemed inevitable, the  huge creature suddenly dived  and went clear under the raft. It  stayed submerged for about two  minutes, then surfaced again on  the other side, a long distance  off. Shaking an enormous tail  as though in farewell, it sounded once more and disappeared  into the cold fathoms of the inlet.  The starting whistle jarred me  back to the onerous business of  trying to make a living.  The job' continued to go badly. The harder I tried, the worse  it seemed to get. I simply could  not seem to master the knack, of  unhooking small logs in the  water.  My confidence deteriorated. I  knew damned well that I was  holding up production with my  ineptitude. Eddie Carrington  continued to find perverse  amusement in my predicament  but Big Danny was getting impatient. A couple of times,  struggling with particularly^ difficult turns, I could hear.-his  bullrOar of a voice, "C'monj^^^  for (Mrissake! Let's have tfiat  This part of the operation  was a straight high-lead yarding  set-up. They were logging a  relatively flat plateau with the  smaller donkey engine. A cheerful red-haired kid worked at the  spar-tree, unhooking the logs as  they came in and hooking them  up again to the skyline rigging. I  envied him his speed and expertise.  It was early fall and mostly  sunny with leaves of the alders  just starting to darken. Big  Danny was hooktending the  show, with an Irishman named  Paddy pulling rigging and a college kid with glasses, on the  chokers.  After the travails of the bullpen, blowing whistles seemed  like a vacation. I clicked the  points of the wooden bug  together whenever Dan or Paddy shouted their signals and  sang songs to myself in the  warm September breeze.  An experienced chaser had  taken my place on the A-frame.  He somehow flipped the  chokers free on the smaller logs  with a pikepole. More power to  him, I thought but I didn't want  the job back on a bet.  Big Danny was very much the  star of the show. He was certainly prone to anger at times  but he never took it out on the  crew. He reserved his imprecations for inanimate objects or  God.  "You hard-hearted grey-  bearded old bastard!" he would  howl blasphemously when a  hung-up log defied him, shaking a gloved fist at the heavens.  I half-expected a bolt of  angry lightning to blast him  right off the mountain. His tantrums were monumental. On  one occasion, he actually got  down and bit a stubborn choker  cable. Paddy swore he left teeth  marks in the steel.

I confessed to the obvious,  convinced that I was about to  get the axe.  "Well, I'll tell you what. I'd  give you a bit longer to break in  but we got to get a couple more  booms out before the snow  flies. There's a new engineer  and a chaser coming in from  Minstrel tonight. I'm going to  have to put you blowing  whistles, I guess." Oddly, Danny seemed apologetic, almost  embarrassed.  Several confused emotions  ran through me simultaneously.  I was relieved at not being fired;  thankful that I wouldn't have to  chase anymore and humiliated  over the demotion, I debated  quitting to save face but there  really wasn't much point in  that. I'd just have to find work  at some other camp.  The embarrassment of my  failure soon faded and I adjusted to my diminished position in the scheme of things at  Carrington's camp. Now I toiled up the steep incline each  morning with the rest of the  crew.

At The Arts Centre  Special reason  to celebrate  When members and guests  gather at the Arts Centre on  ���  August 1 to celebrate the Arts  ;  Council's ninth birthday, they  >  will also be celebrating a very  :  special and generous gift from  ; the   District   of  Sechelt,   the  I Municipality of Gibsons and the  ; Economic Development Commission of the Sunshine Coast  Regional District.  These three bodies have each  ; contributed $5,000 out of Partners in Enterprise money to  ; fund a Community Arts Co-  . ordinator   for   a   year.   The  presentation will be made at the  ; Arts Council's birthday party, 4  \ to 6 pm, August 1.  ;     Thfe  Community Arts  Co-  r :Or��iinator will work for the Arts  ^Council - to find ways in which  the many artists and craftspeople on the Coast can become  '. more  economically  successful  '������ by selling more of their work.  August 1 is also the eighth  birthday  of the  unique  and  Caravan  Theatre  by Ken Collins  The Caravan theatre arrived  in Gibsons last Monday afternoon to receive a warm official  greeting from Mayor Diane  Strom. Formed in 1970, it has  travelled over 20,000 miles  throughout Canada and the  western United States performing to thousands of people.  The four brightly painted,  hand-made gypsy-like wagons  are pulled down the road at between two and three miles per  hour by Clydesdale horses.  They are accompanied by a  donkey and a flock of chickens  and are safely guided through  traffic by outriders on light  horses.  The actors range from all  over and for the last four years  have been permanently on the  road. The members of the  troupe work 15 to 16 hour days  and there is little escape from  each other's company. They are  either driving the wagons,  outriding, setting up or striking  the show, or performing.  Tuesday morning the  Cosmodrone tent went up in  Dougal Park and Wednesday  evening they performed to over  500 people.  Thursday morning the tent  was struck and they were on the  road again.  charming log structure which is  the Arts Centre. The building is  an example of Coast artisans at  work. It was conceived by  Clarke Stebner in 1977 and built  over the next two years with the  federal Canada Works program  and the provincial Ministry of  Parks and Recreation providing  the funds for the labour.  Materials were donated by Arts  Council members, many of  whom also contributed time and  effort to the building.  On August 3, 1979 the centre  was opened at a gala black tie  reception, and has since become  a cultural focus for the whole  Coast.  The Arts Council hopes that  all members and guests,will attend the; celebration cocktail  party on August 1.  "The television industry is  killing real theatre on this continent. It's changed the art of  writing and producing for the  theatre and it's changed the  things that audiences expect.  But all is not lost. There is  something we can do."  Tom Cone, internationally  renowned playwright, will pursue this theme when he appears  at the Festival of the Written  Arts on August 16, 2:15 pm, at  Greenecourt in Sechelt.  Sherman Snukal, who was  scheduled to appear at the  Festival, has been forced to  withdraw because of conflicting  theatre commitments back East.  The Festival is fortunate that  Tom Cone has returned to the  West Coast on sabbatical and  has agreed to come and take his  place.  Among Cone's credits are  more than 30 radio plays written for the CBC and 12 stage  plays which have been produced  in Canada, the US, Britain and  Australia.  One of Cone's best known  works is Herringbone, a full-  length play with music, which  premiered in New York in the  summer of 1982 where it won  numerous awards.  Cone is also known for his  adaptation of the Goldoni  masterpiece, Servant of Two  Masters. This play, and  another, Stargazing, came out  of the two years Cone spent as  playwright-in-residence at Stratford in 1978 and 1980.  m% 9 eeeeee  Other plays include Whisper  to Mendeilsohn, The Organizer,  Shot Glass, Cubistique and  Beautiful Tigers, which was  produced at the Edinburgh  Festival. Cone's plays have been  seen, not only in New York and  Edinburgh, but in Chicago and  Cleveland, every major theatre  centre in Canada and the  Sydney, Australia Festival.  He has been associated with  The New Play Centre in Vancouver since 1973 and is a founding member of Playwrights  Canada. He is presently at work  on two full-length plays, TIB-  ALL AMERICAN GIRLS (sic)  and The Seed Stealers.

So instead, I decided to head to one of my  favourite restaurants which is conveniently located just a  few minutes away.  Walking into the Homestead is like entering a hanging  garden. Plants of every shade of green suspended from the  ceiling beams, give the place a real homey feeling.  We chose to sit indoors instead of on their enclosed  patio, having had more than enough sun for one day. It  was nice to know, though, that if we wanted to sit outside  we would still have been able to have a drink, which is a  change from last year.  The weekend specials were on the menu; pan fried trout,  chicken delight, barbecue chicken and their regular special,  prime rib. I decided on the latter while my partner decided  to have one of the delicious burgers that regulars have  come to love.  The special includes a trip to the salad bar which carries  all the regular combinations as well as special creations  such as a fresh shrimp salad or salmon salad. I heaped my  plate and dug in. Everything was crisp and cool.  When the prime rib arrived, I was sure I'd never be able  to eat it all. A huge portion of juicy beef filled my plate  flanked by cooked vegetables and a baked potato. It was  accompanied by an order of garlic toast.  My friend's hamburger came fully loaded with a  homemade pattie and all the extras you can imagine.  It's important to mention that everything at the  Homestead is homemade, even the black forest cake. It  makes for very fine food, whether you're having  breakfast, a quick lunch, or a special family dinner.  Our meal was thoroughly enjoyable and relaxed. The  friendly staff makes everyone feel welcome and I know  from past experience that they're very good with children.

On July 20, 32 eager beavers turned  out for a two ball foursome  round. When scores were tallied  the teams of Carl Reitze, Doug  Reid and Ross McQuitty, Evelyn Tapio and Neil Reeder,  Jessie Reitze tied for first place.  Barry Cutler and Lil Abbott  took second. Pete Waycott and  Lois Haddon were in third  place. The honest golfers were  Jim Buntain and Ruth Koleus.  Mixed Twilights will continue  every Monday except for  August 3.  Senior Men's Day, July 21,  saw 17 stalwarts out for a round  of 'hidden partners'. Big winners for the day were: in first  place, Bart Cillabough and  John Willcock; second place, Al  Wendlancr and Jim Buntain;  and in third place, Jim Menzies  and Carl Rietze. Eldy Gandy  took closest to the pin.  The men's championship  tournament continues with two  rounds down and one to go.  After   two   rounds   George  Langham, John Willcock and  Jim Buntain are leading with a  three way tie for low gross. Jim  Menzies is in the lead for low  net. The next round should be a  barn burner. Watch for the  results next week.  The ladies chose to play a  'four ball best ball' round on  July 23. Nineteen turned out  with five playing a 'pin round'.  Winners for the day were Verna  Belland, Pat Mitchell, Evelyn  Tapio and Silvia Edwards.  Evelyn chipped in on number  four.  Candy   Fawcett,   a   visitor  from the Port Alice Golf and  Country Club was welcomed  and played with the ladies.  After hearing a description of  the Port Alice course it was suggested that the Pender Harbour  course was a plate of cake.  The ladies course rater from  the BCGA has completed a visit  to the Pender Harbour course  and the gals are waiting with  baited breath for their official  course rating.  And from the 19th hole.

Each year with each succeeding federal and provincial  budget more and more pressure  is being slowly applied to  gradually relieve the seniors  pocket book of benefits earned  and paid for over many years of  hard labour on small wages.  The only way this trend can be  . stopped or reversed is by a  strong seniors' association, not  to increase what we have worked and paid for over many  years, but to hold the line on  pilfering of successive Ministers  of Finance.

The first petition was from  the \ New Life Fellowship. They  want the lodge because their  present premises has " stairs  which prevent elderly or handicapped people from attending. Rockwood Lodge offers  open space where they can hold  church meetings as well as conduct their academy on a daily  basis. They also have planned  usage for the 12 rooms around  the building.  The other group is the newly  formed Suncoast Rockwood  Lodge Society who want to  operate and manage Rockwood  Lodge as a facility for the community for the development and  promotion of arts, culture and  learning.  In   commenting   on   their  presentation, Mayor Bud Koch  indicated that the financial  ability of the group to support  the lodge was not exactly what  council had hoped for. "A  goodly portion of the costs will  be on the taxpayers initiative,"  he~stated. He did infer that the  /spirit of the proposal was what  rthey were looking for. ' :  Pr  Vedo  refund  Sunshine Coast Regional  District (SCRD) last week dealt  with a request from Oddvin  Vedo for a refund for airfare  expenses to Norway for a trip he  made five years ago. The money  had been out of Vedo's own  pocket. He has stated he was  willing to suffer the loss if the  trip did not generate some  aquaculture interest and investment.  In 1985 the Ministry of  Agriculture refunded those  monies which totaled $1,321.50  but they did not refund them to  Vedo. Instead, the did so to the  SCRD.  "I therefore kindly ask you  monies owing plus two and a  half per cent compound interest  per month since December 30,  1985 to the amount of  $1,570.85," he asked in his letter.  The board voted to refund  the money less the interest.  _��-__-_____a_m_fc  _%1-_111__-V|  Quote off the Week  The revelation which from time Immemorial, hath been acclaimed as  the purpose and promise of all the  phophets of Cod, and the most  cherished desire of his/messengers,  hath now, by virtue of the pervasive  will of the almighty...been revealed  unto men.

VON 3A0  Student financial  assistance and  volunteer community  work: an explanation  Some benefits under the new B.C. student assistance  program are now linked to a student's activities during the  summer ��� activities which may include, for some students,  volunteer work in the community. Here's how it works:  1. Level of student assistance based on financial  need  Student assistance ��� in the form ofloans ��� is available to virtually  al) British Columbia students who can demonstrate financial need  while attending university, college or a provincial institute. These loans  must be repaid after graduation.  2. New programs reduce student loan debt  New programs now enable many students to reduce their debt from  student loans. These programs work by replacing a portion of the  student loan assistance with assistance from special new funds which  do not need to be repaid. (Officially these programs are known as  Supplemental Funds, Equalization, and Loan Remission. We will send  you a pamphlet if you want to know more.)  3. Student requirements: work or study during  summer.  Most students in B.C. already contribute to their education by working  or studying during the summer. This type of "personal contribution" is  now a formal eligibility requirement for the new programs   'hich  reduce student debt. (It is not a requirement for the basic s, dent loan  ��� which is based solely on financial need.)  4. If you can't find work, you can volunteer  Students who look for a job. but cannot find one, can still meet their  "personal contribution" requirement by finding volunteer work in  their community. Student assistance officials will be flexible when  interpreting this innovative requirement ��� particularly during this  first year. Students are advised to keep a log of their volunteer activity.

There is a relatively new  branch of astrology that has  figured out a way to predict  which latitudes and longitudes  are likely to have a specific affect on your life. It's called  Astrocartography and was developed by Jim Lev/is in  California. As long as you have  an accurate time of birth, this  new technique is amazingly accurate.  It's based on the theory that  personal power zones are set up  at the moment of your birth.  When you travel to a place  where a planet would have been  on one of the four cardinal (or  powerful) points in the sky at  that time, then you will be chiefly influenced by that planet's ^  energies. It is probably easiest to  think of these as power lines/. '  While it is essential to have  your natal astrology chart as a  point of reference in order to  accurately predict the probable  nature of your experiences on a  specific power line, some  general rules apply.  Where a planet is on the  ascendant, descendant, mid-  heaven, or nadir when you were  born you can expect a corresponding tone to your life  there.  Sun - A positive place where  you tend to take control of your  own destiny. Your ego is emphasized and you tend to be  more authoritative and active in  pursuing success. You will  manifest the traits of your birth  sign strongest here.  Moon - A very emotional  place and one where you tend to  be quite needy. You will not  likely feel very secure here and  may become quite compulsive.  Mercury - These are great  places to go for an education.  Your mental stimulation is  high, as are your abilities to  communicate.  Venus - Friendships, love affairs etc. dominate here. You  seem to become your most attractive and sociable self at  these locations, although things  may flow too easily to be good  for you.  Mars - For the very evolved  person this can be a place of  great energy, but most of us will  run into some problems here. It  can be a place of a lot of fights  and even accidents.  Jupiter - My personal favourite. Things tend to come more  easily here. It's a place of healing, personal growth and good  luck.  Saturn - A lousy place for  health, wealth or any of those  pleasant things but it's a good  place to learn self-discipline and  how to work for what you  want.  Uranus - A lot of excitement  BUSHWHACKER  Services  Res. & Comm.  Vegetation  Control  Steve Cass  885-7421  Please Leave Message  and ups and downs. It's a great  place to break out of old patterns and a terrible place if you  need a sense of security. At least  it's never boring.  Neptune - This is another  place that's only positive if you  are quite highly evolved. Then  you can reach spiritual heights  that you've never dreamed of.  However, since self-deception is  a big problem here, you could  end up in some nasty cultish activities.  Pluto - A place of great upheaval where you are constantly  finding aspects of yourself dying and being reborn anew.  If astrology is to be looked at  as a way to take control of your  life, then the development of  Astrocartography is like putting  the wheels on an automobile.  With it you can choose what influence that you need in your  life at any given time and  relocate under the appropriate  influence. .

Booking In  Coast News, July 27,1987  17.  by Montague Royal  If the late Milton Acorn was  the People's Poet of Canada,  then the late Sir John Betjeman  was certainly the People's Poet  of England, although there were  few other similarities between  either the men or their poetry.  Acorn was a red-faced roaring  Communist, poor born and of  sketchy education. Betjeman  was a small bald quiet voiced  Conversative who went to posh  schools. Acorn wrote wide open  free verse. Betjeman couched  his thoughts in formal metres.  Yet both had what can only be  called, the common touch.  John Betjeman, despite the  fact that he both served as  laureate and earned himself a  knighthood, was not a great  poet. But within the bounds he  set himself, he was a very good  one.  Betjeman published many  books of poetry during his long  life. The accessibility of his  work brought him to a wide audience, including many people  not normally receptive to  literature of any sort. When his  Selected Verse was published in  the mid 1960's, the book actually became a best seller in  England, an almost unheard-of  event. While Betjeman wrote  many fine, moving and often  funny short poems, his unique  accomplishment was a long  autobiographical work called  Summoned By Bells.  Betjeman's lyrical evocation  of his sometimes joyous, often  deeply-troubled English  schooldays is quite without  precedent in the world of letters.  Almost any other writer would  have chosen prose in which to  couch such a personal memoir.  Betjeman opted for the unusual  course of bringing his childhood  to life in a book length poem.  Summoned By Bells is written  almost entirely in blank verse,  interspersed with passages of  lyric poetry. Such a device  would seem, on first consideration, to be an awkward, even  foolish endeavour, and admittedly, there are a few turgid  passages but for the most part,  it somehow works, perhaps  because of its very quirkiness.  When a condensed version of  the book was first published,  oddly enough in America's  prestigious New Yorker  magazine, it received wide and  instant acclaim.  It is difficult to fully appreciate the curious charm of  Summoned By Bells without  reading the entire work, but a  couple of brief excerpts might  convey a little of its magic..  Atlantic rollers bursting in my  ears  and pealing church bells and the  puff of trains  the sight of sailing clouds, the  smell of grass -  were always calling out to me  for words.  I caught at them and missed and  missed again.  "Catch hold," my father said,  "catch hold tike this!",  trying to teach me how to  carpenter,  "Not that way, boy! When will  you ever learn?"  I dug the chisel deep into my  hand  "Shoot!" said my father,  helping me with my gun  and aiming at the rabbit -  "Quick, boy, fire!"  But I had not released the  safety-catch.  I was a poet. That was why I  failed...  or  First tremulous desires in  Autumn stillness  Grey eyes, lips laughing at  another's joke,  A nose, a cowlick - a delightful  illness  that put me off my food and off  my stroke.  Here, twixt the church tower  and the chapel spire  rang sad and deep the bells of  my desire.  But Summoned By Bells is  much more than the sum of its  parts. With simple language,  John Betjeman weaves a subtle  spell. And always, his essential  humanity shines through.  Gardening notes  by Marguerite  It is during July that the  splendour of the lily is at its  height. Among the easiest to  grow and the most magnificent  is the regal lily. They waft a  heavy fragrance over the  garden. Once settled in a well  drained, but not particularly  fertile soil (provided it contains  some leaf mold), they will  flower reliably every year  without trouble.  Flags or bearded iris will take  a new lease on life if they are  divided and replanted. Lift the  plants and cut off sections of  the younger rhizomes near the  outside, to reduce water loss.  Reduce the leaves to six inches,  and plant so that the rhizomes  are still clearly showing above  the surface.  Here are some ideas and  reminders. Increase the weight  of fruit by watering trees heavily  when fruit is swelling. Spray apples with diazonon against the  coddling moth.  Sow calceolarius, gloeinias,  and cinerarias in the greenhouse. Take cuttings of  pelargoniums. Finish planting  out sprouting broccoli and  brussels sprouts.  When strawberries have been  picked, cut old leaves down just  above centre growth of new  young leaves.  Pick black currants and, after  harvesting, prune out old,  fruited wood. Use the same procedure for raspberries.  Pick and dry herbs. Place  root cuttings of camellia,  pyracanthus and hypericum in  pots of sandy compost in a cold  frame.  When aphids, flea beetles,  mealy bugs or spider mites  camp out in your garden or  vegetable patch, try giving the  plants a jet spray of water from  the garden hose. Be careful not  to injure the plants. Repeat for  a week.  Soapy water made from two  ounces of dishwashing detergent to a gallon of water  sprayed on your outdoor ornamentals and house plants  reduces pests. Repeat as  necessary.  The horses from the Caravan  Stage show in Gibsons donated  quite a supply of manure for the  garden and yours truly appreciates it, living close by.  Send your photos of your  garden for the contest to Gibsons Garden Club, Box 461,  Gibsons.  Kids, stake your sunflowers.  With the winds we are having  they need it, another month to  go to get really big.

CO  OO  OO  "J5  u  c/_  QJ  c/_  u  c/_  ��  z  in  O  U  C  fm  A3  Q  Our preparations in Southampton  neared completion. Bill had worked hard  to ensure that Mouli was shipshape, to  provide for possible equipment failures,  and to make repairs.  These included fixing the leaky windows and reinstalling the head. He installed a foot pump for the water so we  would not need the electric pump at sea.  He also put in a salt water pump. Once  away from the harbour we would use sea  water for washing up.  Bill obtained all the spare parts he  thought we might need. These included  everything from a water pump for the  motor to fuses and cotter-pins. We met  one couple who'd had to cruise 200 miles  out of their way because they lacked a 35  cent fuse. We didn't buy an alternator.  Later, we were to wish we had.  While Bill was tinkering, I was bird-  dogging. We'd been told that England  was the best place to provision so I spent  many, many hours obtaining and storing  the foodstuffs and other supplies I  thought we might need. These included  dozens of cans that had to be labelled  with water-proof pen, many packages of  staples that had to be stored in waterproof containers, and numerous sundries  like vitamin tablets, salt water soap,  toilet paper, and dental floss. Can you  imagine being out at sea and not able to  floss your teeth?  We needed a dinghy and we bought a  Tinker Tramp. This is an inflatable that  is equipped with a centreboard so it can  be converted into a little sailboat. We  also bought the necessary accessories so  it could become a life raft: canopy, sea  anchor, etc. And we had to get all sorts  of safety equipment including an  EPIRB. This is an emergency radio  beacon. Some of these items were expensive and we spent a lot more money than  we thought we would.  We knew we'd need lots of books at  sea so I frequented a nearby second hand  bookstore and bought stacks of paperbacks. We would trade with other  boaters later.  It was almost the end of June and time  to leave the dock. Nelson said that lying  at dock rots both men and ships. But the  longer you're at shore the harder it is to  leave. Friendships are formed and attachments made. Southampton was  beginning to feel like home. We'd been  there almost three months and, apart  from a short cruise to the Isle of Wight,  hadn't taken Mouli anywhere. We'd  been too busy getting ready to go.  English yachtspeople think nothing of  'popping across' the English Channel  and stocking up on duty-free wine. But  they are used to the weather and tides.  For us North Americans, the channel  was a bit of a bogey.  We shared in many conversations  centering around such topics as the best  ports of departure and arrival, how to .  compensate for tides and currents, and  what hour to depart in order to arrive in  France in daylight. For most, the best  departure port was Plymouth but for us,  since we would be taking Mouli through  France rather than around, we decided  that we'd make the crossing from Poole;  to Cherbourg.  So, with much waving and tooting of!  horns we finally left Southampton. We  headed for Cowes first, on the Isle of  Wight. This is a beautiful and very busy  yacht harbour. The island is lovely.  It was here that the America's Cup  yacht race began in 1851. The English  challenged the American yachtsmen to  race around the island. The English  boats had not yet adopted the principle  of using sails as airfoils and the  American boat left them far behind.  The victorious boat was the America,  a 100 foot schooner, and henceforth the  event was the America's Cup.  y  \  tl Coast News, July 27,1987  m  Editor's Note: A copy of the  following letter was received for  publication.  Mayor Bud Koch  and Council  Well, here it is 9:45 pm on a  beautiful summer evening, birds  singing, sunset beautiful, and  Jackson Bros. Logging still revving up their logging trucks or  whatever -1 must say the sound  carries very well!  I  know that by now we  .   should be getting used to it. It  starts as early as 5 am.  It's OK, though, because it's  nothing after months of listening to bulldozers and pile  drivers levelling the land at Grey  Creek for the wonderful new  fish hatchery which, I might  add, comes complete with  helicopter deliveries. Fortunately when the helicopters are  - operating, it obliterates all other  sound.  The point I'm making, is that  the industry already here creates  a great deal of noise pollution.  All of the people living in this  area do not create anywhere  near the racket the above two  companies do. You say that we  need industry or marine zoning  in this area to create a tax base.  I've got news for you. Since  these two companies have moved to this area my taxes have  gone up, not down.  Our road has also become  quite dangerous. Try driving  home at around 5:30 pm with  several workers roaring home,  not always on their own side of:  the road.  Please, please, we do not  want any more industry in this  area. It has been proposed by  some of the local residents that  the four lots between Jacksons  and Aquarius be zoned for  parkland.  At first hearing this may seem  like asking for the moon, but in  the long run, I think it is not.  Concern  Editor's Note: A copy of the  following letter was received for  publication.  Ferry Task Force,  Mr. John Shaske,  Regional District of  Sunshine Coast  The staff and members of the  Board of Directors of the Sunshine   Coast   Home   Support  Society are concerned about the  transportation system on the  Sunshine Coast.  Over 90 per cent of our service pertains to the elderly; we  serve approximately 370 clients  per month. It is now a well-  known fact that the elderly wish  to remain independent and in  their own homes for as long as  possible. In order to achieve  this, a community support  system is essential. This includes  'such services as medical, dental,  homecare nursing, home support workers, physiotherapy,  adult day care, meals on wheels,  and transportation. Isolation is  a major factor. Many elderly  live alone, do not have a car,  and/or do not drive.  Specifically, with the present  transportation system, a number of persons eligible for the  Adult Day Care program cannot attend. It costs $12.30 per  hour for a home support  worker. To use a home support  worker for transporting clients  to and from appointments and  programs is not, in some instances, a cost-effective measure  for the taxpayer. Volunteers are  often neither available nor have  the skills and vehicles to transport an elderly or disabled person.  The Sunshine Coast Home  Support Society urges your  group to establish more frequent service and to extend the  west boundary. With a more  frequent and extensive transportation, this community  would better meet the needs of  the senior population.  Thank you for your consideration.  J.W.

GAMING COMMISSION  SEEKS PUBLIC INPUT  ABOUT THE ROLE OF GAMING  IN BRITISH COLUMBIA  The Commission is responsible for licensing and  regulating bingo, casino, and ticket lotteries conducted by charitable and religious groups, as well  as studying topics related to gaming in the province.  Interested groups and individuals wishing to express  their views are encouraged to submit letters or briefs  by September 1, 1987.

V8V 1X4  The provincial campsite is  always full in the summer, a  park here could perhaps have  some camping facilities for the  overflow, as well as access for  the many divers who come to  this area.  Try the tiny spit in Tuwanek  some weekend with 40 clivers  and the locals vying for a spot.  I think a park in this area is  very badly needed, and that if a  municipality the size of Sechelt,  can afford to buy Rockwood  Lodge, so that people can  wander in to look at a few  rhodos, or $550,000 for just the  land for a recreation complex,  and with a floating breakwater  in the works for the front of  Sechelt, I would say that we  have indeed been slated to  become the posterior of the new  municipality.  In closing Mr. Mayor and  council, please hear us, and better still, please act on what you  hear before we have industry  stretching from one end of  Sechelt Inlet Road to the other,  without some concessions for  the local people.

Walters' announcement came  after an hour of presentations  by Tuwanek and Davis Bay  residents.  This was followed by a slide  presentation by Mark Battersby  of Tuwanek, which illustrated,  more effectively than any  words, what the Tuwanek residents were fighting for. By  alternating slides showing the  beauty of the Porpoise Bay/  Gray's Creek area with others  of the existing industrial  development in the area, Battersby made a strong statement  for a halt to any further such  use of the land around Sechelt  Inlet.  Diana Davidson proceeded to  present the public hearing with  a synopsis of every study in the  possession of the Sunshine  Coast Regional District, which  clearly and concisely described  why the Sechelt Inlet, especially  the portion from Nine Mile  Point through Porpoise Bay, is  unable to handle any pollution.  Referring to the area as 'exquisitely fragile' she explained  why the commonly used time  allotment of a 12 year flushing  cycle did not apply to the Porpoise Bay area, where studies  indicate that no flushing action  takes place on the lower 235 to  290 metres.  Once Mr. Walters made his  announcement, members of the  public soon changed their focus  to the issue of the process by  which the final decision on the  OCP would be made.  Repeated requests from the  floor failed to convince council  that the public had a right to  know each council member's  stand. Mayor Bud Koch rose  and addressed the meeting, say-  NEW STAINMASTER*CARPET...  A A  dm 1 #^ 1  wAu����  Only from Du Pont technology.

We decide these  things as a unit."  Malcolm Shanks, Administrator for Sechelt District, provoked the ire of the public when  he refused to stand or use the  microphone provided, as he  stated council policy on in  camera meetings.  When members of the public  called out that they couldn't  hear Shanks, he responded, "In  the words of a teacher of mine,  'listen'."  Although he finally rose to  speak, it wasn't until a further  response was required of him  that Shanks followed the chairman's instructions to use the  microphone.  Diana Davidson, a noted  Vancouver lawyer, rose once  more and pointed out that the  fundamental basis of democracy depends on knowing what  positions elected officials take  on issues so that people can exercise their right to vote effectively.  "It is a simr'e right in a  democratic soci :.y," she insisted. "It is not council's right  to go in cam ra on this issue.''  In spite of ihe public protests,  council went in camera following the public hearing, and the  next morning made the following statement to the media:  "At a special planning  meeting held on Friday, July 24,  at 9:30 pm, it was decided that  the recommendation to council  will be that the OCP map  number B-l, as displayed at the  public hearing on July 24, 1987,  be accepted with the following  exceptions:  "A) That the Aquarius  holdings and four lots between  Aquarius and Jackson's be  designated residential.  "B) That the five lots on  Highway 101, south of Bay  Road will be designated residential."  Koch also told the Coast  News, "All of council feels that  eventually Porpoise Bay should  be devoid of any commercial  use.
