 mmmsmammmmm  Legislative Library  Parliament Buildings  Victoria, BC V8V 1X4  Published on the Sunshine Coast      25* per copy on news stands       June 15,1987        Volume41 Issue 24  ''"' mmnmrnrnmaWmmmmmmammmmmM  Minister of Agriculture and Fisheries, the Honourable John Savage     Creek Hatchery and is presented with a large sea-farmed salmon,  cuts the ribbon at the official opening of Aquarius Seafarm's Gray ���Ken CoUins photo  Mayor Koch says  Sechelt shows the way  Mayor Bud Koch described  Sechelt as "the town that dared  .to say fishfarming is the way to  goy' in his welcoming address at  the official opening of the Gray  Creek Hatchery of Aquarius  Seafarms Limited last Thursday  at 11 am. He was speaking to  almost 300 special guests at this  gala opening. He then turned  the microphone over to Harold  Long, local MLA.  "After seeing what is here today and understanding the  employment that is given to this  area and the impact on all society along with your tourism, I'm  just delighted for Sechelt," said  Mr. Long.  "Aquarius has set an example for the rest of the riding to  follow. We have 60 per cent of  the coastline of British Columbia in our riding and I think this  is going to impact all the way up  the coast and is going to give the  jobs that are needed in the  future^; ,    .v.._.,: ,.... ������.-.  7 Trie Minister of Agiiculture  and Fisheries, the Honourable  John Savage, was on hand to  cut the ribbon. "It is a potentially great industry for the Province of B.C. and certainly for  this peninsula," he stated,  noting there presently were only  250 operations on the coast instead of the expected 1000.  As for provincial involvement  in aquaculture, he stated, "We  will be bringing forward legislation, hopefully in this session,  to clear up some of the jurisdictional matters between the  federal government and the provincial government. It is our intent to take over most of the  licensing and inspection operations in the province."  Aquarius Seafarms Limited  presently has seven farms with  three more going into operation  witjiin .the^next.r six;., to eight  weekis. The new* hatchery will  produce an excess of three  million smolts this year. Approximately half will go to their  own farms. Next year they expect production to double.  Aquarius plans to market 1.5  million^ pounds x>f7, fish this  winter and increase that to four  million pounds the following  year.  Sewage odours  plague Gibsons  "It must be given top priority," stated Alderman Bob Maxwell at last week's Gibsons  Council Planning Meeting,  speaking on the subject of the  Gibsons Sewage Treatment  Plant. There were no disagreements. Complaints about offensive odours have been received  since 1974 and the town has  ��. ��  *\.  ^^;>^n  been attempting to rectify the  problem since that time but to  no avail.  Superintendent of Works,  Bob Marchand, outlined the  problems in a three page report.  He explained that the main contributor of odours is the ther-  mophylic digester.  The town has had difficulty  getting the digester to work properly and assumed that once  those malfunctions were corrected that the smells would go  away. The digester is now functioning correctly but the odours  are still there and no less offensive.  The digester is meant to work  at high temperatures resulting in  odours being carried up and  away from the plant. In the  evenings, however, when the air  cools, the odours are carried  down the sloping terrain  towards the water. There are  also pockets where the smells  are extremely foul.  The Planning Committee has  recommended that Dayton and  Knight be contacted immediately and be asked to come back  with  an  immediate response.  Socreds find  Bill 19 is  a good bill  The annual general meeting  of the Mackenzie Social Credit  Association was held Sunday,  June 7 in Powell River.  The well-attended meeting  was addressed by Mackenzie  MLA Harold Long and by  Highways Minister Cliff  Michael, who spoke on Bill 19,  employment, ferries and health  care costs. Mr. Michael, himself  a former union official, believes  that Bill 19 is good legislation  which will bring democracy into  the workplace. Employees will  have the right to vote on an  employer's final contract offer,  instead of having to follow the  dictates of a union negotiating  committee. It will also be easier  to certify a union shop or to  decertify if workers so desire.  He stated that a silent majority of British Columbians support the government's labour  initiatives, citing a grass-roots  rally of 4000 supporters at the  legislature last week. Michael  pointed out that 105,000 new  jobs have been created in B.C.  so far this year; unemployment  is down from 15.4 per cent to  11.6 per cent. Still too high, but  moving in the right direction.  The government is concerned  about health care costs with an  aging population and the AIDS  epidemic. It is feared that each  AIDS patient will require about  $100,000 in government health  expenditure.  Hope Wotherspoon, the provincial party president chaired  the elections which saw E.R.  Rufer of Gibsons elected consistency Vice-President and  several directors elected including Stan Dixon, former  Chief of the Sechelt Indian  Band.  Pub sought  for Davis Bay  The Cafe Martinez is still  working toward rezoning so it  can become a neighbourhood  pub.  "A public hearing is the first  step," stated Mayor Koch at  last week's meeting of the  Sechelt Planning Committee.  He expressed concern that at  some future date the premises  may change hands and competition from other pubs may create  the kindi of establishment that  would not-be compatible with a  family area.  How far do they have to go  to attract business to survive,"  he said.  Alderman Anne Langdon,  speaking in favour of a neighbourhood pub, said, "If you  look at pubs in this area, they  are as much restaurants as they  are pubs. People don't go there  just for their weekly brew."  brew."  Alderman Craig commented:;  "It would be consistent with the  development of a waterfront  recreational area for Davis  Bay."  Crino d'Oro is pictured outfitting in Gibsons Harbour prior to the  voyage which sank her. See story below. ���Vera Elliot photo  A section of the wall between the pilings of the old wooden breakwater at Gibsons' government wharf  broke off and dropped 10 feet sometime last Saturday. ���Ken Collins photo  Aquaculture conference going to  be bigger and better than ever  All in a day's work  Fishermen survive capsize  The Sunshine Coast Aquaculture Conference and Trade  Show is slated to be bigger and  better than ever. In an interview  last week, Sunshine Coast  Aquaculture Association president Syd Heal told the Coast  News that there are already 400  delegates booked for the conference which is scheduled for  September 8 through 11. Bookings for exhibit booths have  already arrived from as far  away as Finland and Sweden  and inquiries are coming in  from India and Japan.  Decisions about the fate of  the 1988 conference will be  made within a matter of weeks  and Heal said he's optimistic  that it will take place. Several  options are being considered, he  said, one is that the Sunshine  Coast show could run right  after the large international  aquaculture trade show which is  being planned in Vancouver.  "We're not approaching this  Vancouver thing with any dog-  Please turn to page 7  "  "PTT��1  K_J  Gibsons fisherman Dale  Pearce along with shipmates  Ron (Butch) Hill and Jake  Spinks are back home after the  75 foot dragger Crino d'Oro  sank in heavy seas 75 miles from  Port Hardy last Wednesday  morning. Jake Spinks was crew-  ing as deckhand and the other  two men were partners in the  vessel.  Dale Pearce spoke to the  Coast News:  "We had pretty close to a full  load of fish and were bucking  heavy weather all night. About  7 am we got into a real cross sea  and got four or five heavy  waves in the boat. The boat just  swamped and floundered and  fell over on its side. It went  down about three or four  minutes later.  "We got a Mayday off and a  Loran position instantly. We  spent the rest of the time trying  to launch a liferaft which we got  into the water but it wouldn't  inflate. The hard skiff got pinned under the bow of the boat so  we couldn't get it overboard.  "We spent half an hour to 40  minutes in the water. There was  no debris or anything like that.  There was just us m the water  and the canister of the liferaft  which we finally managed to  retrieve and pry it open, beat it  open. Basically it went pretty  good, everybody did whatever  they had to do. No one really  talked, one guy got the life-  jacket, another guy got the  flares, someone did the Mayday."  Mr. Pearce said all three were  tired and beatup but otherwise  okay. "I'm home for a bit but  I'll probably get bored the day  after tomorrow."  For these men, it's all in a  day's work.  '   '   ~~^^$$$fc  ���lw�����__*._ii^ Coast News, June 15,1987  It is ironic but not surprising that the party which swept  to power vowing to get the federal deficit under control is  now, having made little impact on the deficit, telling us it  plans to spend $10 billion so that Canada can play with the  big boys with a fleet of nuclear submarines.  This is the country that not too long ago had a prime  minister who had won the Nobel Peace Prize; this is a  country that not too long ago had armed forces which  were synonymous with peace-keeping around the world.  It is notable that the Minister for Disarmament in the  federal government objected to the cold war rhetoric with  which the Defence Minister couched his arguments for the  massive spending being plannned on nuclear submarines  on the grounds that such language made the job of  discussing disarmament more difficult.  In this chosen path, as in so many others, the Conservative government is emulating the Reaganites south of the  border who, elected promising a return to fiscal responsibility, have run up an astronomical deficit with no comparison in their nation's history and largely it has been incurred feeding the endless appetite of the war machine.  It is now more than quarter of a century since out-going  Republican president Dwight Eisenhower warned the  American people that the military/industrial machine was  in danger of running totally out of control. How would he  see it today?  The parallel is just about complete when the head of the  Canadian armed forces visits the West Coast and tells us  this pointless and wasteful squandering of resources is  justified in the name of job creation.  Twenty years ago there seemed a unique place for  Canada among the nations of the world as the only industrialized Western nation that had never had an empire.  Today we seem to be a country content to take a predictable place as a satellite of the American Empire.  ijmmm fflw :<***** Gomfjmm  5 YEARS AGO  Citing falling pulp markets and prices as the prime  factors, Canfor released a staterfifeht last week announcing that the Port Mellon mill will face closure of 38  working days this year over twot separate periods.

Between 40.and 50 residents of the Redrooffs area  took part in a protest walk through the Redrooffs Trail  on Sunday. All were equally incensed by the obstacles  and attempts to obstruct the public from using this'  public trail.

They remind the  public that drinking on the beaches, ball parks and  public areas leads to impaired driving, accidents,  assault, rowdy parties and destruction of property.  There was a break and entry at Gibsons Building Supplies, however, the three Fraser Valley men were apprehended by police and a GBS employee while still inside the store.  10 YEARS AGO  Children in the Porpoise Bay area of Sechelt are alleged to be sick as a result of drinking water into which  pentachlorphinal had seeped from power poles.

Certainly none can be  more closely associated with  those days than the three  stalwarts who homesteaded  near the mouth of the Creek.  One by one they have passed  away recently and the last to go  and the youngest was Charles  Merrick, 1901-1987.  Charles Merrick first came to  the Creek as a boy in 1906. His  father had met Harry Roberts  and become his friend. Charles'  father was an engineer for  Frank Waterhouse, the freight  arm of the old Union Steam-;/  ships and was often away from  home. Young Charles was in  the care of his mother and two  sisters and perhaps his father  thought the influence of Harry  Roberts was just what his son  needed, for a pattern was set  which saw the boy return every  summer to help Harry run the  store.  "They kept the butter in a  crock in the creek to help keep it  cool," remembers Mrs. Betty  Merrick.  She and her son Paul are  lighting the fire on a gray cool  morning when the reporter  calls. The comfortable home  which Charles Merrick built  when he retired as an industrial  Sits teacher in 1967 sits beside  and, to a degree, is modelled  after the Castle Harry Roberts  built for his first wife Birdie.  The Merricks lived in the Castle  in 1967 when they moved to the  Creek on Charles' retirement.  Mrs. Merrick is Charles' se-  Departure 1938  The Vancouver-bound steamer is at our wharf.  Members of the immediate family go up the  gangplank.  fVe others stand back a little.  Our settlement has nothing to ship this trip���  Nothing that is except the box there on the wharf  shed floor.  The box is of clear, edge-grain cedar and  has spliced rope handles, two on each side.  It was made yesterday by Jock the ship's carpenter  who keeps a supply of seasoned lumber on hand  for occasions such as this.  ��  The winches at the foot of the mainmast chatter  as the cargo board is hoisted and lowered to the  wharf  Four of us, hatless, carry the box and  place it lengthwise on the board.  Two deck hands spread a Union Jack over it.  One, presumably a family man, makes a point of  tucking the covering snugly around his end.  He steps back one pace and removes his battered cap.  His hatless mate waggles a thumb and finger for the  winchman to hoist away.  The winches* chatter is subdued.  Slowly, slowly the winch drums turn.  The skipper appears on the wing of the bridge,  his visored cap held against his chest  ��� a sea-going padre pronouncing benediction.  Swinging slightly, the load is raised still higher  and held a moment, outlined against the soft grey  sky.  An untucked corner of the covering flutters as the  box descends into the dark hold.  Mooring lines are cast off, the gangplank hauled  aboard.  As the ship gets underway  we see its ensign lowered to half-staff.  A man behind me clears his throat with needless  vigor,  another rolls a cigarette.  Old Scottie says "aye weel weeV\..to no one in  particular.  Singly and in pairs we leave.  There are cows or goats to milk,  kindlings to be split for morning.  Midway along the wharf I look back.  The ship is on course beyond the reef.  I hear white gulls crying.  At the last our neighbor did not have  too rough a crossing.  He was a plain-spoken man and direct in his dealings.  His departure was in keeping.  Hubert Evans  cond wife. He married Marjorie  Roberts, Harry's niece whom he  had known from childhood in  1929. The couple had five  children.  Paul Merrick, a distinguished  architect, refers throughout the  interview with complete comfort to Mother Number One  and Mother Number Two. He  and his twin brother David were  the youngest, aged 10, when  Mother Number One passed  away.  "Miss Copland was the  school nurse and a relative of  Harry Roberts herself through  marriage, so when father remarried it seemed like Mother  Number Two had always been  an integral part of the family,"  says Paul Merrick.  "Five children, I was crazy,"  laughs Mrs. Betty Merrick.  Charles Merrick's leadership  qualities were early tested. During the First World War, at age  15, with adults away at the war,  Charles led the First Vancouver  Troop of Muntaineers through  a remarkable program of outdoor scouting experiences.  Work on behalf of the scouting  movement was left close to  completion on his work bench  at his death. He was a distinguished member of the Baden  Powell Guild-  Charles' first work was for  North West Steel but soon he  had taken the requisite courses  and was teaching industrial arts,  or manual training as it was  then called, in Ocean Falls,  first, and various Lower  Mainland centres before he  retired in Vancouver in 1967.  All the while Charles and his  family were moving further out  from the encroaching city and  Betty Merrick remembers living  in West Vancouver before electricity when going to church  meant taking your lanterns with  you so you could light the  church. The move to Roberts  Creek upon retirement was both  a kind of returning to a beginning and the completion of a lifelong pattern.  Nor was Charles Merrick idle  during his last years in Roberts  Creek. When it was decided to  compile a history of Roberts  Creek in 1975 under a New  Horizons grant, Charles and  Betty Merrick were centrally involved from the beginning, and  Charles succeeded the late Cliff  Gilker, upon the latter's passing, as chairman of the project.  The book was published in  1978. He was actively interested  in the Roberts Creek Community Association and the Roberts  Creek United Church.  Paul's elder brother Peter,  again a resident of the Creek,  pedals up on a bike and joins  the interview. He and Paul  remember how a plain cedar  box had been fashioned as appropriate for the burial of the  man they still call Unkie, Harry  Roberts. Perhaps the idea came  from the poem by Hubert  Evans which appears on this  page. In any case the thing was  done.  It seemed appropriate that a  self-made cedar coffin should  shield the remains of Charles  Merrick, too,' and so his sons  fashioned him such a box 'no  metal anywhere' when his time  came to be interred.  Peter remembers: "It was  green, clear, Western Red  Cedar. I was helping to build it  on crutches.  "I asked Paul: 'Shall I plane  or sand the bottom?'  "What would father have  done?' said Paul.  "I said 'Right', and continued planing to a very high  standard."  Paul and I visit the workshop  on the way out.  "Until we buried father, I'd  never worked in this  workshop," said Paul, "but using it was like pulling on an old.  shoe. He had everything where  he always had everything and  everything labelled and in its  place. Harry's workshop was  entirely different."  Besides some stamp collecting  boxes he had been working on  for the Baden Powell Guild, the  new SCRD-distributed house  number was being worked on in  wood when Charles left the  workshop for the last time.  Over a cup of coffee by the  fireplace Mrs. Betty Merrick  smiles at the thought and says:  "Sometimes I think about  Unkie and Hubert and Charles  getting together now."  Of the three of them; Harry  Roberts; Hubert Evans; Charles  Merrick; Charles is the only one  I never met. It is something I  profoundly regret as I leave that  patch of history at the mouth of  Roberts Creek. Coast News, June 15,1987  ���***  apjaiuWn  etter  An Open Letter to the Residents  of Gibsons  Dear Residents:  As many of you are aware,  there has for some time been a  problem with persistent,  unpleasant odours emanating  from the sewer treatment facility. The council had been given  the understanding that the problem was due to the overloading  of the system and that when the  expansion to the plant was completed and operating properly,  the odours would, diminish.  This has not been the case.  ��� The effluent being pumped  ;put our outfall is well under the  limits allowed by our permit  jfrom the Ministry of Enrivon-  tment and our thermophylic  fdigester is now digesting sludge  efficiently. But the odours persist.  7 The council has made the  ���reduction and elimination of the.  [odours their top priority. A request has been made to consulting engineers for a list of  odour abatement measures  which they are prepared to  guarantee will be effective  together with associated costs.  This list is to be prepared and  delivered as soon as possible. As  soon as it is received, council  will establish and implement a  program of odour abatement  measures.  Your continued co-operation  and patience is appreciated.  The Mayor and Council  The Town of Gibsons  Objection  Editor:  As an elderly citizen who  would be confined to spending  my days indoors if it wasn't for  my mobile wheelchair, I must  express my objection to the unfunny article in last week's  Press.  The headline stated "Speed  Demons a Menace," and the  writer rambled about speed  freaks in wheelchairs.  There are only a few of us in  Sechelt who are forced*; by  health circumstances to travel in  this way and I am sure that they  will be equally offended by this  type of publicity.  Sechelt Wheelchair User  More debt  Editor:  What the hell does the  Federal Government want to  "foist on us now? At a time when  we are already carrying a deficit  National Debt greater per capita  then the people of the US, are  we supposed to condone an expenditure of billions of dollars  to play war games? One hundred billion over 15 years.  If the Canadian government  is concerned about the Arctic it  should station surveillance  equipment, mobile or stationary. If there are incursions  - by foreign powers, we should  settle affairs through the UN  and World Constitution.  Incidentally, the US is the only country to date to flaunt their  disregard for Canada's  sovereignty in the Arctic.  All the hardware we could  muster would be insufficient to  ; outgun the US or the USSR and  could only add to the irritants  that provoke war.  ��� At this point in the world's  .history, to diffuse rather than  escalate the arms race, or chip  ���on shoulder mentality, is needled.  Every billion dollars we are  ��� committed to spend, I reckon to  , cost the average Canadian fami-  ���_-.ly $200 or more. The amount  I suggested to flex muscles in the  Arctic appears to be a lousy investment, economic or political,  and I think every Canadian  should be shouting loud and  f clear "enough!"  ; JG Warn  | More letters  <   on page 19  Blackberries'  #1 ENEMY  The  BUSHWHACKER  Steve Cass  885-7421  V      Please Leave Message  Business has been blooming and we are overstocked with pre-owned vehicles.

Call in at Capilano  College or write to Elderhostel,  Corbett House, 29 Prince Arthur Avenue, Toronto, Ontario  M5R 1B2.  This will get you on the  Elderhostel mailing list and you  will receive all their publications  telling of the programs around  the world. Capilano College  have a copy of this publication  if anyone wants to see it.  The last group of visitors left  on Saturday after a great week  for them and their hosts.  Week two started with  Economic and Social  Geography of the Sunshine  Coast taught by Brett  McGillvray and Cordon  Wilson. Followed by the  Knowledgeable Consumer;  Aquaculture talk, a course on  Critical Thinking by Mark Bat-  tersby; a tour of the Sechelt Indian Hatchery; a walk through  the Sechelt Marsh; and a tour of  the Indian carvers on a film set.  Monday evening, the Sechelt  Chamber of Commerce hosted  a wine and cheese party.  Wednesday, the Welcome  Beach Community Association  Seniors debate taxes  by Larry Grafton  Perhaps the main reason why  we have a paragraph in our  Branch Constitution which  states we are non-political non-  sectarian, is to prevent our  members from voicing opposing  opinions with resultant bloodshed during this last week. Mind  you this would only apply in our  hall.  My personal good wishes go  out to the secretaries in the  Municipal Hall who have to  face a deluge of angry tax  payers to explain something  that is none of their doing. The  question of course is "When is  this nonsense going to stop?"

He lays the blame at the feet  of the provincial government  for under funding the school  system instead of right here at  home on the Sunshine Coast.  Probably some day, if we live  long enough, these people will  come to their senses.

We have not approached local business for  financial support to date.  OVER 80s' TEA  I should again mention the  over 80s' Tea being sponsored  by Jean and Bert Sherlock in  our hall on June 23 at 1:30 pm.

If you plan on attending  phone Jean for your reservation  at 885-9388. This is an annual  event which has proven to be a  very popular gathering in the  past, so phone now!  ELDERHOSTEL  The second contingent of  Elderhostel people were in town  last week from all parts of  Canada and the United States.  One of the highlights of their  visit was a salmon barbecue  with all the trimmings provided  by the Welcome Beach Community Association in their hall.  Upon completion of the meal  the 69ers presented a few  numbers to the assembly with  Nikki Weber conducting and  Connie Wilson as accom-  panyist. The Country Stars  Square Dancers then performed.  A group of visitors from far  places were able to perform  with the local group which certainly added to the community  spirit. Judging from conversations some of these people will  certainly be back.  with a  My Gas or Electric  TRIMMER  from  ITS POWER PLUS  had a fabulous fish bake and  party at their hall in Halfmoon  Bay, with salmon donated.  Tom Sheldon.'a local diver, did  a marine slide show, or there  was a choice of a silk dying  demonstration.  Then before they knew it Friday night had arrived and it was  graduation time.  In the absence of President  Jardine, advisory member Ken  Moore handed out the certificates and everyone made  their last farewells.  Anyone who has hosted these  travelling students are so thrilled  with the people they have had in  their homes that they are eagerly looking forward to next year  when the program is on again.  April Struthers and Diane  Staples do a magnificent job arranging all the details booking  the teachers, fitting the students  to the hosts and the 101 things  that need to be done to make  the program the huge success it  is.  The people that arrive here  from a_ over are so intrigued  with what they find that they all  plan to return, some even found  property to buy. One lady from  Oregon was so pleased this program was offered here as this is  a favourite visiting spot of hers  and to have the courses was an  added plus.  Next year why don't you plan  on taking in students and join in  the fun of Elderhostelling?  ANNUAL MEETINGS  The annual meeting of the  Sechelt Intermediate Care  Society will be held in the new  conference room at Shorncliffe  on Tuesday, June 23 at 7:30  pm.

He  assured the board that he had  Watch for the  OPENINfi DAY  SPECIALS  at Marshall Wells!  no personal interest in the matter.  Several months ago, Derby  served notice that he would not  be operating the dump after  June 26, because it was not a  financially viable operation. At  the meeting last week, he said  that he would be sticking to that  decision with the additional  reason of his wife's poor health.  He asked the board to consider maintaining the Gibsons  site as a commercial dump,  which would charge a user fee  for the dumping of everything  except kitchen garbage. Alter  natively, if the SCRD was not  prepared to make that decision  now, he suggested taking it to  referendum in the fall.  Keeping the dump open on  that basis, would require that  someone be on site every day  for five days a week, to collect  fees and keep out the kitchen  garbage. However, the fees  charged have only covered  about one third of the cost of  running the dump, he said.  The board agreed to refer the  matter to the Public Utilities  Committee which meets this  Thursday.  The philosophy of municipal  planning came into discussion  at the Sechelt Council Planning  Committee meeting last  Wednesday. Planner Rob  Buchan expressed concern that  some areas of the Draft District  of Sechelt Community Plan  were not definitive enough. A  specific example given was some  of the large land tracts in East  Porpoise Bay that are recommended being down-zoned  from Rural 2 (R2) to Rural  Resource (RR).  RR includes rural residential,  forestry, agriculture, recreation  and sand and gravel extraction  areas. Temporary permit within  RR disignated areas may be  issued for sand and gravel extraction and crushing, temporary campsites, construction  camps, short term commercial  recreation facilities and shake,  shingle and sawmilling.  "RR designation would  create an apprehension with the  public," stated Mr. Buchan  about the proposed down-  zoning. Mayor Bud Koch noted  that the proposed plan didn't  provide for zoning for marinas  in residential areas.  "It leaves a gray area and  makes it difficult for anyone  dealing with water leases," he  pointed out.  A public meeting will be held  on June 16, at 7 pm at the  Senior Citizens' hall to make  people aware of the plan. A  public hearing will be held on  June 20 at 2 pm at the same address so that people may give input. The emphasis at the committee meeting was that the plan  was a draft only and subject to  revision.  20% OFF all SLEEPWFAR  ALSO  20% off all Blouses, Skirts,  Tops, Raincoats, Jackets  Vjw  BOTH LOCATIONS  Cowrie St., Sechelt  9:30-5:30 885-2916  Cedar Plaza, Gibsons  10-5 886-8199  ^>      F/\SHloK?j  Fantastic  SALE!

Members of Council and  staff will be present to provide information, and to  answer questions.  b) As required by Section 956 and 957 of the Municipal Act,  a Public Hearing will be held to consider the following  by-law of the District of Sechelt:  "District of Sechelt  Official Community Plan By-law No. 22,1987"  It is the intent of this by-law to supersede the existing  Official Community Plan By-law No. 237, and to introduce  a new Official Community Plan over the entire area of the  new Municipality of the District of Sechelt, as incorporated  in 1986.  The Public Hearing will be held at 2 pm on Saturday,  June 20, 1987 at the Senior Citizens' Hall, Mermaid St.,  Sechelt. All persons who deem their interest in property to  be affected by the proposed by-law shall be herein afforded an opportunity to be heard on matters contained  therein.  The amending By-law No. 22 may be inspected at the  Municipal Offices of the District of Sechelt at 5545 Inlet  Avenue, Sechelt, from Monday to Friday, 8:30 am to 3 pm.  Conference  to be bigger  Rob Buchan  Municipal Planner,  Approving Officer  District of Sechelt  Box 129  Sechelt,'BC VON 3A0  Telephone: 885-1986  Continued from page 1  in-the-manger attitude," he  said. "We realize its benefit to  the whole industry." But he  pointed out that the expense of  either participating in or attending the conference in Vancouver will be prohibitive for  some of the smaller businesses.  Additionally,  many  of ther  topics covered at the international conference will have little  relevance for B.C. fish farmers.  In contrast, this year's Sunshine Coast Trade Show will  have more Canadian Exports  than ever before. Speakers will  cover a broad range of subjects  on finfish and shellfish farming,  including a relatively new endeavor in B.C., abalone farming.  Some temporary confusion  erupted when it was announced  that the 1988 international conference, which is expected to attract approximately 1500 delegates, would be held on the  same dates traditionally used by  the Sunshine Coast Aquaculture  Association for the conference  here.  "Conference organizers  chose the same dates we normally use. Whether that was by  accident or design we can't  say," Mr. Heal explained. "We  support the concept of an international conference of this scale  in the sense that we prefer to see  it in Vancouver than in some  other North American city."  The loss of the conference  could severely jeopardize the existence of the Sunshine Coast  Aquaculture Association. Heal  said that the annual event  underwrites a large portion of  the association's expenses, and  without it the association might  have to fold.

There'll be three days  of festivities in the hope that as  many people as possible can be  part of the celebrations.  Things begin Friday night  with a smorgasbord for $5 per  person available from 6 to 8  pm. Leta, the renowned belly-  dancer, will perform twice in  the evening and there'll be taped  music from the 40's, 50's, and  60's.  The branch will be open on  Saturday afternoon from 1 to 5  pm for people to drop in, visit,  hear about the renovations  planned for the bar, and quaff a  few from the new draught  machine. Another $5 smorgasbord will be served from 5 to 7  pm followed by a birthday cake  and an awards ceremony, then  dancing from 9 to 1 am with  Ken Dalgleish and Trio.  Charter members, past  presidents, and presidents of  other legion branches have been  invited that night so seating will  be very limited. There are no  tickets or reservations: it's first  come, first served at the door  with members having priority.  There'll be an Open House  on Sunday from 1 to 6 pm  featuring the mellow tones of  the   69ers  around  2  pm.   It  sounds like a full slate of activities so do take part. And if  you have any old pictures or  other memorabilia of the  legion's past, Roy Cardinal  would dearly love to hear from  you at 885-2128 (work) or  885-2952 (home).  JOB'S DAUGHTERS  Julie Storey will be taking  over from Heather Ross as  Honour Queen of Job's Daughters at the installation  ceremonies this Sunday. Also  on the new executive are Nancy  Marshall, Senior Princess;  Amanda Stubley, Junior Princess; Stacey Cleland, Guide;  and Dolena Brand, Marshall.  The installation ceremony is a  very pretty one and members of  the community are invited to attend. It's at the Masonic Hall  on Sunday at 2 pm.  DAZE COMING  Plans for Roberts Creek Daze  are well underway but there are  still lots of opportunities for  people to help and participate.  Most important is the need for a  few more contestants in the Mr.  Roberts Creek contest. C'mon  guys, take the plunge and enter  now so the show will go on!  The contest will be held Friday, July 17, followed by dancing to Slim and The Pickups.  Last year's outdoor dance at the  mouth of the Creek was such a  success it will be reprised on the  Saturday night featuring Used  Guys.  Gibsons Trade Show  Wednesday, June 17 there will be a mini trade show of  Gibsons. The chamber is having a 'Show and Tell' night.  Some of the groups involved in this show are Travel Sunshine  Coast, Sunshine Achievement Centre, and the Gibsons Landing Theatre Project.  The cost is $5 for the evening and tickets are available at  the Chamber Information Centre. The time is 8 to 10 pm. If  anyone else would like to be in the show please call Linda  Gilbert at 886-2419.  Gardening  notes  by Marguerite  No sooner is summer really  on its way than we gardeners  have to think about winter  vegetable supplies. There is a lot  to sow and plant this month,  but afterwards it is a comfortable feeling to know the winter  larder will be full.  The Pacific North West  winter climate is reasonably  mild, so we can grow many  vegetables which, when mulched six inches when weather is  cooler, makes them available  even under the snow. Consult  your local nurseries for a 'territorial' seed catalogue which  are very informative.  Try growing Tiny Tim  tomato plants in a hanging  basket, placed in your sunniest  position, or on your patio.  If your lawn needs feeding,  do it early in the month while  the grass can still make use of  the food. As the weather warms  up a lawn begins to live off  stored food.  We hope the children have  their sunflower seeds planted  and starting to grow, keep them  watered if it gets hot.  Suggested mulch materials:  sawdust, wood shavings, shredded bark, grass clippings, leaf  mold, spoiled hay and straw,  newspaper, manure (fresh or  aged), to name a few.  The Gibsons Garden Club  meeting is on Thursday, June 18  at 7:30 pm in the Marine Room.  Mrs. Carmen Grassie is the  guest speaker on the subject of  'flower arrangements'. Members please bring one flower or  spray with you. Guests are  welcome.

SEA VOYAGE  The Henderson Beach float  proved to be a very seaworthy  vessel when it was swept away in  a storm a few weekends ago. It  ended up near the Wakefield  Inn, undamaged, and fortunately could be identified.  After a few phone calls, Pat  Randall was contacted and he  brought it home safe and  sound.  Film folk  take look  B.C. Film Commission location consultant, Mark Des-  Rochers spent June 8 and 9 on  the Sunshine Coast taking the  photographs that will begin a  film location file for our area  that will be used to promote the  film industry.  He was visiting the Coast at  the invitation of Sunshine Coast  Productions who are working  with the Economic Development Commission to promote  our Coast as a location for  feature films and television  series.  In a busy two day visit,  DesRochers, accompanied by  Paul Murphy took a boat up the  coastline from Gibsons to  Pender Harbour and followed  that with location shots in  Pender Harbour, Sechelt,  Roberts Creek and Gibsons.  Unable to fit the Sechelt Inlet  into the schedule, DesRochers  plans a futher visit to  photograph the Inlet and the  Skookumchuk.  While on the Coast DesRochers took the time to meet  with local officials and says he  strongly encourages the kind of  initiative being taken by the  Sunshine Coast in promoting  the area as a film location.  "It's one of the reasons I'm  here," he said. "The other is  that there will be at least nine  feature films and seven series  being shot in B.C. this year and  I anticipate that a considerable  amount of work will take place  outside the lower mainland."  Paul Murphy, of Sunshine  Coast Productions said he was  pleased with the two days of  shooting and looks forward to  continuing to work with the  B.C. Film Commissiion to ensure that the Sunshine Coast  receives a high profile.  "Cruise on Princess"  to Hawaii in Sept  Incl. Cruise, Meals, Rt.

And time is running outi  |ILL 19 IS BAD for everybody. And it's  tearing our community apart. You  must convince the Premier and Cabinet to set  aside Bill 19 and take a second look.  That is your obligation to this community.  An overwhelming majority (74%) of British  Columbians agree it would be in the public  interest for the government to set aside the  Bill and set up a committee of government,  labour and business leaders to take a second  look at Bill 19.  It is your responsibility to take that message  to the government, on behalf of the rest  of us.  On a matter of such importance as Bill 19,  we expect you to put aside political partisanship, in the public interest, and vote on behalf  of the people who live in this community.  A "cooling off period" is called for here. As  our representative in Victoria, we are counting  on you to carry that message to the legislature.  Please don't let us down.  If you really care about  the people of Sunshine Coast  tell the Premier to set aside Bill 19  A MESSAGE FROM THE SUNSHINE COAST LABOUR COUNCIL  Fp  ��� A LEASE join our Citizens' Campaign for Industrial Cooperation.

HAROLD LONG  LOCAL OFFICE: 485-28 T  i: 387-0797  i  i  j I  Jaime Dragan won this six foot high Gumby for raising the most  money in Cedar Grove School's third annual Penny Drive. Jaime  raised $33.09 of the total $808.03 which will be sent to the Lions  Club to pay for two local handicapped kids to go to camp.  ���Penny Fuller photo  Long reviews  AquaWest file  Editor's note: the following is a  press release from the office of  Harold Long, MLA, Mackenzie  In response to continued  public concerns, I have, with  co-operation of my colleague,  the Honourable John Savage,  Minister of Agriculture and  Fisheries, undertaken to per-'  sonally review the files and correspondence of the Ministry  concerning the audit of  AquaWest.  I am reassured that provincial  funds paid to AquaWest are  fully accounted for.  It must be understood that  provincial auditors were not  undertaking an audit of the  total operation of AquaWest  but limited their investigation to  whether public monies had been  diverted to private, personal  use. No evidence of any such  wrong doing was evident.  However, it was apparent  that AquaWest had overestimated revenue and had several  outstanding accounts. That  however, is mismanagement,  not fraud.  On behalf of the local community, His Worship, Bud  Koch, Mayor of the District  Municipality of Sechelt, is providing leadership in trying to  sort out this unfortunate effort.  An orderly disposal of assets  should see creditors receive a  partial payment of their  outstanding accounts unpaid by  AquaWest.

The car rally starts on the Friday evening at 6 pm from  Cooper's Green and you should  register now by calling Dianne  Flynn at 885-7026 for information.  The Children's Fishing Derby  will once again be on the Saturday morning at 8 am. Register  by calling the B & J Store who  sponsor the event and provide  food and drinks for the competitors. Baking contest is on  the Sunday. To register for this  call Hazel Raphel at 885-5683.  Cakes, pies, cookies, squares,  breads and muffins will be judged as well as jams, jellies,  preserves and pickles. Let's see  all you great cooks enter this  event.  You should also take the  chance to enter the handicraft  contest. Knitting, crochet, doll  making, sculpture, painting,  needlework and any type of  handicraft will be judged.  This year there will be a new  contest, a 'Favourite Teddy  Bear Contest'. This is for young  and old, so dust off that old  cuddly bear and enter it in the  contest. Dolly Brand at  885-5683 will give more information.  Also a reminder that if you  want to rent booth space at the  Fair you should get on the  phone soon to Andrew Steele at  885-3973.  I know that many of you  were very interested in the story  of the baby hummingbirds being cared for by the Orres of  Redrooffs and that you will be  sorry to learn that the two little  ones just didn't make it.  It would have been quite a  miracle if they had survived and  our thanks go out to Tor and  Mary for having given it such a  brave and dedicated try. They  even had a call from a Vancouver reader who'd had a  similar experience some years  ago with the same sad ending.  WELCOME BEACH  The Welcome Beach Community Association were hosts  to the Elderhostel group last  week when they presented an  absolutely delicious barbecue  for more than a hundred  hungry folks. All the salads and  goodies were provided by the  ladies of the Association while  the fellows did a marathon job  of barbecuing some thirty  pounds of salmon which was  very kindly donated by Woods  Fisher Farm.  The very popular 69'ers  under the direction of Nikki  Weber were accompanied by  Connie Wilson on piano and  they presented a delightful program which was thoroughly enjoyed by all. The Country Stars  Square Dance group also added  pleasure to the evening with  caller Viv Pallot doing a great  job. The guests were gracious in  their thanks to everyone for a  most enjoyable evening.

Jones  said he had told the owners that  the wall was unsafe in April of  1982.  Pressure was removed from  the wall after that by excavating  behind it, but there is still a  question about its stability.  Council instructed planner  Rob Buchan to write to property owner, Bill Edney, instructing him to take the necessary  steps to ensure the wall's stability. Edney will be told that he  has 30 days to comply before  the town will take matters into  its own hands and hire an  engineer for which the owner  will be charged.  However, Graham Edney,  the owner's son, told the Coast  News last week that the wall was  secured with steel augers and  cables only a month ago, but  the building inspector hasn't  been around to see it. He also  had an architect in to advise him  on the situation who agreed  that, "that wall isn't going  anywhere."  The architect told him that an  engineer couldn't tell him  any more, because he wouldn't  know how much steel is in the  wall by a core sample.  "That wall is solid," said  Edney.

Emerald is a group of local  musicians who have been  together in fluctuating numbers  since 1980. As the name implies,  this group favours traditional  Celtic tunes, but owing to the  talent and versatility of these  musicians, they can play just  about anything, including some  wonderful bluegrass.

PHSS AWARDS DAY  In June, students at Pender  Harbour Secondary School  prepare for final exams,  graduation and other year end  activities such as Awards Day.  Although often overlooked,  Awards Day is of great importance to many students.

Awards Day  provides the well-deserved  recognition that students have  worked for all year long.  Please come out June 25 at  9:30 am to see what our young  people are achieving.

Our condolences to the family.  FRAN'S ART  Fran Ovens displayed 10 of  her paintings on June 5 at the  Wilson Creek Hall and the hall  looked positively glamorous.  Fran's paintings give a "feeling". Many of them contain a  smokey overlay picture of a  Coast Indian image atop a scene  of the area.  Fran trained at the Vancouver Art Centre coming second in her class at the age of  18.  For years, while her children  grew, she put her brushes aside.  Then, a while ago, she decided  to try again, only now using  acrylics. For two years she experimented with this medium  finally achieving a secret process  that creates a silk screen effect.  For those people who are  grabbed by the "feeling" that  emanates from Fran's pictures,  then owning one is a must. One  even hangs in a castle in Germany. Hope Fran will come  again next month.  Remember Sue LeNeve will  be showing her creations on  June 20,   1  to 4 pm during  library.  FOUND  Two pair of eye glasses in  their cases have been found in  Whitaker Park. These can be  obtained during Library Hours,  12 to 4 pm Friday, 1 to 4 pm  Saturday at the hall.

Terri Jossul has done her first  year in the Criminology program at Douglas College in new  Westminster this past winter,  with some computer courses on  the side. Terri intends to return  to Douglas next school year and  then continue her studies  toward a degree in law at one of  our universities.  "That will be six or seven  years altogether," she said,  "and I have every intention of  completing them."  The museum is so well laid  out now after last year's work  project that both parents and  children will find in the displays  something to stir keen interest.  It was only the dedication of  Les Peterson and other citizens  who caught his spirit that a  museum was ever started. And  for years the collection was  stored in left over space in the  village hall until the present  building was constructed, first  one floor that had to share  space with the village license  and insurance office, and then  about four years ago, a second  floor.  The shell collection of the late  Charles Bedford is there,  classified a few years ago by  Mike Hotner, and attractively  arranged in the new display  cases.  A rock collection; a salmon  skiff that Hubert Evans built  and used, along with a herring  rake for the then multitudes of  the fish; pioneer hand tools,  farm implements, household  gadgets, and a 'fresno'. All  there to demand another visit of  you.

SEVERAL MONTHS AGO  I purchased a bottle of saffron. I opened the bottle, prodded the little  envelope inside, and decided I couldn't bear to use it. So I popped it in  a dark cupboard and every now and again I'd take it out and stroke it.  After many months of this, and with the world being in such a peculiar  state, I decided there was no point in hoarding it any longer so I  brought it out into the daylight. Luckily, most recipes only call for a  pinch of saffron so I guess I can keep it in its dark little home for some  time to come. I used the 'pinch' in:  B.C. Mcintosh  apples  California  broccoli  California  cauliflower  MOROCCAN CHICKEN  Vt teaspoon black pepper 'A teaspoon cumin  2 tablespoons butter  1 cup Spanish onions, chopped  V* teaspoon saffron  1 chicken, cut up  1 teaspoon salt  V�� teaspoon paprika  1  1 can garbanzo beans, drained  IV2 cups chicken stock  4 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley  1 cup rice, cooked  juice of 72 lemon  1 tablespoon butter  Cut the chicken into serving pieces and season with salt, paprika,  cumin, and pepper.  2. Melt 2 tablespoons butter and saute onion and chicken pieces until  golden.  3. Sprinkle with saffron, add garbanzo beans and chicken stock.  Cover and simmer for approximately one hour until chicken is cooked.  4. Cook rice in usual manner. When cooked stir in 1 tablespoon butter  and place on heated serving dish.  5. Stir parsley into chicken. Place chicken pieces on rice and pour saffron sauce over. Sprinkle with lemon juice and serve immediately.  Sometimes a little exotica will go a long, long way!  NEST LEWIS Coast News, June 15,1987  K  V  by Peter Trower  rx*  Buddy Knox Rockin' and Rollin' at Sechelt Arena Friday night.  __ -. , P, ���Ken Collins photo  50 s figure  Knox still rocking  In 1968, burned out from the  city and several hopeless years  of trying to become first, an artist and then, a writer, I returned to Gibsons and went back to  work in the logging camps. I  rented an apartment on the  main street, bought an old typewriter and banged out a lot of  bad poetry. My mother frequently dropped by to visit and  occasionally, I went to their  place for supper.  My mother and Mike were  now living in a small cottage on  Bay Road in the crook of Gibsons' bay, having rented the  larger house. Mike was on the  wagon and still working for the  maintenance department. They  still had the little black and  white torn whom my mother  had now christened Cu Ching,  the Malayan word for cat. My  mother seemed to have Mike  under some measure of control.  I hated him no less but it was a  relief to know he was off the  booze. He and my mother had  made a marvellous garden  together which was the envy of  the neighbourhood. It touched  me with its beauty.  Summer Microcosm  Tethered by two clotheslines  the house hangs moored in the  garden  green waves beat  on the grey-white hull of its  walls.  by Ken Collins  **��:";  A,  if  tar  s?.  1  ���  j*  &  if.  1  ���#  Last Friday night was when  Rock and Roll 50's style came  alive again in Sechelt as Buddy  Knox and the Noteables entertained around 400 people at the  Sechelt arena. The purpose was  to raise money for a planned  leisure centre and the major  political figure behind this event  was Alderman Anne Langdon.  Buddy Knox is as personable  off stage as on. He has come a  long way since he grew up on a  Texas farm. When he first  started entertaining he didn't  know what to do with the  money he was making.  He has two university  degrees: one in psychology and  one in tax accounting. He was  four months away from a  Masters in Business Administration, said Buddy, when he got a  call from New York, "Here's  $1500, they said, "come play a  show. And I thought it would  take me three months to make  that kind of money at the job I  was after." So play the show he  did, and he hasn't looked back.  The first years were definitely  boom years. "One time I  brought in $47,000 in cash, in a  briefcase," he said. It took  some time to convince his father  he was earning the money playing guitar and singing.  Buddy now lives in Dominion  City, a small town in southern  Manitoba, but he doesn't get  much time to spend there. At 54  years of age, he is presently performing around 300 days a  year. His circuit is not confined  to North America. Much of his  performing is done in Europe  and he is planning a tour of  Asia.  This is not the first time he  has been to Sechelt. He played  here once years ago and has in  the past visited to relax and do  some fishing.  In the silver maple  hot wind turns powdered  leaves  like flashing fingers drumming  against the sun.  Goldfinch on the fencepost  stands like a pillar-saint -  his penance is brief -  he sparks off down a breeze.  Small red eyes in the raspberry  bushes  are only specks of summer  blood  waiting for quick hands or  beaks  to wipe them away.  Tiny orange fragment  of nervous muslin,  a butterfly takes inventory  among the fevered roses.  Stocky late cornstalks  flap leathery pinions  straining like buried birds  to wrench triumphant from the  soil.  The peach tree  fashions his sugar balls slowly-  we will catch before they drop  their sweet gold of  continuance.  In this idyllic setting, the cat  lived like a king. Cu Ching owned that garden. He monitored it  from the roof while my mother  and Mike talked the language of  flowers.  Things proceeded tranquilly  for a time.  Then, in the mid-60's, after a  long period of sobriety, Mike  had his last hurrah of madness.  He bought three^ bottles of rum,  let his devils run rampant again  and held my mother at gunpoint  for  several hours.  When he  finally passed out, my mother  fled the house with a couple of  suitcases and moved into the  apartment next to mine. I contemplated going after Mike and  having another showdown but  you can only go that route so  many  times.   I  was   sick  of  violence. I simply phoned the  Mounties, explained the situation and asked them to keep  him the hell away from us.  Mike's rampages were an old  story to the police. They promised to keep a lid on him.

As one  visitor remarked, "It certainly  brightens up the place!"  Bissett's paintings are  primitive, erotic and spiritual.  Bissett himself refers to attempting to reflect "the natural  energies of being." His free  forms and dashes of colour are  Gibsons  Pub'*c Library  Hours;  Tuesday  Wednesday  'Wsday  Sa'urday  STORYTJME  a "return to the molecular  dissolve" that we emerge from.  Bissett's works also contain a  paradox. It would appear at'  first that bissett has made a  deliberate rebellion against the  conventional dictates of composition, form and colour.  However, an examination of his  work shows an underlying  understanding of these traditions. Bissett may appear to be  off on his own separate artistic  tangent, however, there are  strong connections to historic  schools of art; particularly Expressionism, the Fauvists and  pointilism, as well as the current  of primitive Native art.  The show is worth seeing  whether you view the artist as a  painter, a prophet or a sham,  for your senses will certainly be  touched and your perception of  art challenged. It runs until  June 28.

PlJiythins of Life  Mercury boogies backwards  by Penny Fuller  Three times this year, Mercury will go retrograde. That  means that from the perspective  of earth, it will appear to travel  backwards for about three and  a half weeks. I like to give people a little warning about it  because it seems to be a time  when things get fouled up pretty  easily. You know Murphy's  law, "Anything that can go  wrong, will." That seems to  sum up what happens when  Mercury goes retrograde.  This next period starts on  June 21, not the best time for  students. If you have finals on  or after that date, get your studying done now. I know that's a  lecture you hear often, but this  year it is especially true. When  Mercury boogies backwards,  memorizing and retaining information is extremely difficult.  It doesn't turn around and  start moving forward until July  15. Those of you who are planning to take your vacation during those first two weeks of July  should do some careful preparations right now.  If you need reservations,  make them this week. Any arrangements for meeting or  visiting people should also be  completed as much as possible  right now. Both travel and communications are especially  susceptible to Mecurial foul-  ups.  / Have your car checked over  this week and make sure it's in  good travelling shape. If your  Forge hears/talk  on play-writing  mechanic says it's in no condition to drive to Toronto, believe  her/him. Either plan on taking  a different form of transportation or get it fixed.  Have alternate plans of action. If you plan on meeting  friends at the airport, make sure  there's a second place to rendezvous if you miss each other.  If you're planning on staying  in motels, throw a pup tent and  some sleeping bags into the  trunk, just in case the reservations got lost, and make sure  you have an emergency fund  somewhere accessible.  Finally, don't force yourself  into any tight schedules during  this time. Allow for confusion  and mistakes and roll with the  punches. As long as you keep  your perspective and your sense  of humour, this three week  period shouldn't be a problem.  Mercury is more impish than  catastrophic.  THURSDAY, JUNE 18  7:00 P.M.

Those in attendance at the  Suncoast Writers' Forge June  meeting in the Arts Centre were  held spellbound by guest  speaker Gordon Wilson. His  talk on drama covered all facets  of the subject but focussed  mainly on the actual writing of  plays.  Those of us who have never/  attempted such a task learned  much from Gordon and he wa��  bombarded with questions from  a very interested audience who  would really like to see him  back for another session in the  fall.

In the meantime, the  publishing committee is very  busy with the production of a  new magazine called The Sun-  coasters which should be in the '  Pender  Awards  As another year draws to an  end, the students of Pender  Harbour Secondary School  prepare for final exams,  graduation and other year end  activities.

She was already  fanious for outspoken biographies on Elizabeth Taylor and  Jackie Onassis when she set her  sights on one of the most controversial figures in show  business, Frank Sinatra.  plihatra was familiar with  Kejley's no-holds-barred approach. When the singer learn-  edjjaff her latest project, he launcheda $2 million dollar lawsuit  tog Stop  disallowed and Kelley went  ahead. Her resultant book His  Way (Bantam) shows that  Sinatra had good reason to be  apprehensive. There had been  other biographies on him in the  past but never one like this.  Kelley has done a monumental  research job and the picture of  Sinatra that emerges from her  exhaustive probing is somewhat  less than flattering. It is a warts-  and-all expose that must have  sent the singer right through the  roof.  Kelley goes right back to the  beginning when Frank Sinatra  Awards day at Elphinstone was also 'Toga Day' for the Grade 12's,  flijd these 'classical' scholars received Grade 12 Honour Roll  yards from Principal Dave Stigant: Mark Vankleek, Stephen  iristian, Gordon Fallis, Peter Beyser, Sean Tetzlaff, Jim  jcLean, Marlene Lowden, Shad Light, Dawna Read, Charlotte  jrlos, Tammy McQueen, Carolyn Fisher, Tracey Rezansoff,  Pan Jay. ���Fran Burnside photo  was just a skinny kid growing  up in Hoboken, the only son of  an overbearing mother and a  henpecked father. Sinatra was  no great shakes at either school  or sports but he did possess a  good voice and an innate sense  of musicianshp. He set out to  hone these talents and was soon  performing with a vocal quartet  called the Hoboken Four. The  group was 'discovered' by Major Bowes and sent on a crosscountry   tour.   Subsequently,  Sinatra branched out as a single  and began working small clubs  around New Jersey and the Cat-  skills.    One   night,   trumpet  player,   Harry  James   caught  Sinatra's  act,  liked  what he  heard   and  hired  the  skinny  singer   as   his  band  vocalist.  After a few months with James,  Sinatra left to join the better-  established Tommy Dorsey aggregation.    He   stayed   with  Dorsey for a number of years  and had several hit records. In  1943, Sinatra signed a contract  with   Columbia  Records  and  began working as a single again.  But he was famous by this time  and playing the top houses. It  was the beginning of Sinatra's  'Swoon  Crooner' period.  He  famous by this time and playing  the top houses. It was the beginning   of   Sinatra's   'Swoon  went  on  to   Hollywood  and  superstardom.  The basic facts of Sinatra's  career are well known and Kitty  Kelley reprises them well, adding many new facts and insights. But it is the darker side  of the singer's life that truly intrigues her and it is her revelations in this area that make her  book truly fascinating. These  revelations are singularly unflattering.

But the most fascinating  material in Kelley's book deals  with Sinatra's notorious Mafia  connections, often hinted at but  never before spelled out so explicitly. The author had access  to secret FBI files and wiretap  recordings and they reveal an  active connection with the  underworld that dates back to  Sinatra's earliest years. His  hoodlum pals included at  various times, such sinister  figures as Chicago Mafia Don,  Sam Giancana and deported  drug czar, Lucky Luciano. During the Kennedy years, Sinatra  actually tried to use his friendship with the president to take  the heat off Giancana and his  fellow mobsters.  In fairness to Kitty Kelley,  her book is not solely dedicated  to chronicling Frank Sinatra's  less savoury aspects. She cites  the singer's extreme generosity  to fellow performers down on  their luck and his uncredited  donations to countless charities.  She also gives him full credit for  his valiant fight back from  obscurity when his career hit the  skids in the early 50's. And she  lauds his musical accomplishments for Frank Sinatra, despite his darker side, remains a  song interpreter without parallel, arguably the greatest talent  that the popular music business  has ever produced.  His Way is a thoroughly absorbing book about a complex  man, that certainly deserves its  current best-seller status.

(JIM) MUNRO  Editor:  Let's shut down the Hanford  Nuclear Reactor (before it shuts  us down).  From the book of Revelations: "...and the name of the  star is called Wormwood; and  the third part of the waters  became wormwood; and many  men died of the waters, because  they were made bitter." The  Ukrainian word for wormwood  is Chernobyl.  The Hanford Nuclear Reactor in southern Washington is  similar in design to the Chernobyl No. 4 reactor that melted  down on April 26, 1986.  If the aging reactor melts  down, it will deposit significant  radioactive material within a  similar 300 mile radius from the  Hanford reactor site. Travelling  on the wind northward, this includes southern Vancouver  Island, the lower mainland,  Kamloops, Revelstoke, Fernie  and Blairmore, Alberta. A more  serious meltdown will bring  death to some of these areas.  The nuclear reactor contains  over 800,000 pounds of  Uranium 238 enriched with  about one per cent Uranium  235. In one year this reactor will  produce approximately 300  pounds of Plutonium in its 16  thousand fuel rods.  What are the chances of a  meltdown of the nuclear reactor? It's designed life expectancy was 20 years, ending New  Year's Eve, 1983. However, as  there has been an escalating  nuclear arms race following the  failure of Nixon's 'detente',  there has been unreasonable  pressure on the reactor to produce more Plutonium for  America's nuclear weapons production of approximately 2000  warheads per pear.  Following the Chernobyl 'ac  cident', a six member panel appointed by the American Department of Energy recommended 80 changes to equipment and  procedures at the aging Hanford facility.  Two members wanted the  nuclear reactor shut down permanently. The panel had stated  that no attempt should be made  to extend the reactor's life span.  However, an aging Reagan administration has ordered maximum production at these Plutonium factories.  The Hanford nuclear reactor  has been shut down for six  months to improve 'safety'  from nuclear accidents. It is  scheduled to start up on July 7.  This dangerous, aging beast  threatens us here at home, even  as the global nuclear industry  threatens all life on earth. It is  time we shut it down. There  have been too many deaths to  speak of nuclear safety.  There will be a protest  demonstration and non-violent  civil disobedience in Richland,  Washington on July 7. Let's  make an effort to be there.  Robert Lord  Labour fight justified  Editor:  Our valiant peace advocate,  Alan Wilson bewilders me. On  May 18, he gave us an excellent  article decrying the Canadian  purchase of nuclear submarines  and I have already written a letter to Defence Minister Beatty  using the good arguments provided.  Now in Coast News June 1,  he gives us a long, windy dissertation decrying the active opposition the trade unions are  mounting against the passage of  Bill 19.

Olfert  885-4568  Hungry Thirties, my brother  William who worked as an electrician for the West Kootenay  Power and Light Company,  (subsidiary of the powerful  Consolidated Mining and  Smelting Company) organized  the Electrical Workers' Union  for the area. It was dangerous  for him, with a wife and small  children, to _efy the big bosses,  but he brought it off because he  was doing the job of an electrical engineer and saving them  the considerable extra cost.  I remember too, when I was a  young woman far back in 1933,  long before Alan Wilson was  born, Adolf Hitler was elected  Chancellor of Germany by an  overwhelming Vote. One of the  first things he did was smash the  trade unions and send their  leaders to concentration camps.  The right of people who work  for wages to join trade unions is  entrenched in Canada's labour  laws. I believe the steps taken by  the B.C. Federation of Labour  to protect the rights of our wage  earners against unfair labour  laws were correct and timely.  They have nothing to do with  the Peace Movement. I think  Alan Wilson's criticism of them  is out of place and based on  dubious reasoning.  Isabel Ralph  W   .Through the mist of sorrow, watch for the soft beacons  of friendship to guide you.

Hopkins  Landing   and  other   small   neighbourhood  residents were surprised to find  that our next door neighbour,  the Town of Gibsons, was making plans for our future without  telling or asking us about it. It  seems to be some sort of clear  inference   that   because   we  choose to live in a rural lifestyle,  we can't possibly be intelligent  enough to chart our own future.  But we have charted our own  future   and   it,   perhaps, is  something the Gibsons Council  should be reading.  We certainly have recognized  that our little area is unique and  we are flattered that someone  else wants it, but we still have to  wonder exactly which attribute  is the basis of the attraction.  Just one further note, while  some of our more unique area  residents advocate taking over  the Town of Gibsons, we  wouldn't do it without first  discussing it with them.  We do, however, invite  everyone to an Open House for  Area F's Waste Management  Strategy on Wednesday, June  17 at 7 pm at Langdale Elementary School Library.  John Shaske  Sovereignty?  Editor:  This is about sovereignty and  what happens in military  alliance.  A few days ago we were with  a group of people invited to visit  the US military sponsored barge  anchored in the middle of  beautiful Hotham Sound. The  mission of the installation is to  test sonar buoys used to detect  submarines. There was one person in military uniform, an articulate Canadian naval officer.  The officer welcomed us  warmly and took us on a tour.

To our surprise a few days  later we learned the Canadian  employee who had arranged the  visit was fired. It is not known if  the barge is now closed to  visitors. Perhaps inquiry could  be made.

Coast News, June 15,1987  An eight year old Gibsons girl  has been refused a business  licence to sell lemonade on her  family's commercial property  because it trespasses on four  feet of the municipal road  allowance and the town administration does not want to  set a precedent. The enterprising  young lady does not want to be  identified. She already feels very  embarrassed and wants her  friends to see her in a positive  light.  Her mother stated that her  other children . are ail industrious and have some kind  of summer employment. This  particular daughter came up  with the idea of a lemonade  stand.  "What about a business  licence?" asked an older sister.  So, they contacted the municipal hall and discovered it would  cost $50. The parents decided  that the positive experience of  being a responsible citizen  engaged in a commercial  endeavour would be worth the  money, so their daughter applied for the licence. The application was refused.  The Kinsmen, on the other  Garry'sCrane&Gat  886-7028  hand, did have a licence granted  to sell refreshments from a  mobile unit.: They will be  restricted to ; local parks and  community events.  Gibsons Mayor Diane Strom,  along with other town council  members, has expressed a  serious concern for the safety of  young people i on skateboards  and the people they may collide  with.  Apparently, some skateboarders have developed the  practice of utilizing public roads  with steep inclines and have not  always confined themselves to  daylight hours. The mayor  wants parents to be aware of  some of these practices and take  an active interest in the safety of  their children.  Superintendent of Works,  Bob Marchand, has already  started warning skateboarders  that he sees placing themsleves  or others in danger. He has the  power to seize the boards if  necessary and will start doing so  unless skateboarders begin using caution and common sense  in their recreation.

At last week's meeting of the  Sunshine Coast Regional District (SCRD) a letter was received from Greg deMontreve of  Sechelt, expressing his  displeasure in the recent increase in his taxes.  "Perhaps you feel that  reading about the circus of your  get togethers where you toss  billingsgate at one another and  anyone impertinent enough to  question any of your actions is  sufficient value to me to merit  your existence in the style you  want to become accustomed to  enjoy. It isn't," he wrote.  No second minibus  Although the expansion of  the minibus service on the Sunshine Coast has been at the top  of the funding priority list of the  B.C. Transit Board for three  years, the Sunshine Coast  Regional District board received  notice at last week's meeting  that there will be no funding for  a second minibus this year.  In her letter to the district,  Municipal Affairs Minister Rita  Johnston assured the board that  "I and the B.C. Transit Board  of Directors remain committed  to the timely implementation of  all outstanding requests on the  funding priority list."  Area A Director Gordon Wilson called the response "extremely unfortunate" and commented, "I don't think they can  be aware of the urgency of the  need for this service."  He suggested that the  regional district write a letter to  the minister "expressing our extreme disappointment."  But Chairman Jim Gurney  questioned whether that was  ; adequate.  "We may have to go  further," he said. "We have  people paying taxes for this who  don't have access to the service.  Langdale  to host  open house  The Sunshine Coast Regional  ', District will be hosting an open  .' house from 7 pm to 9 pm on  ; Wednesday, June 17, 1987 in  : the library at Langdale Elemen-  ; tary   School   to   acquaint  ; residents with the draft West  Howe Sound Waste Management Plan and the draft West  Hose Sound Official Community Plan.  The Waste Management Plan  will apply to the West Howe  Sound Area (Town of Gibsons  and Electoral Areas E and F). It  has been formulated by consulting engineers with input  from provincial agencies. It incorporates planning and  technical considerations as well  as public input received at the  May 28, 1986 open house in  Gibsons.  The plan provides for continuation of on-site sewage  disposal in Electoral Areas E  and Fj with a minimum parcel  size requirement of half acre  and larger for subdivision purposes. The Town of Gibsons  would be served by its community sewer system. The plan  also suggests regular shoreline  water quality monitoring,  holding tank regulations for  boats and encourages regular  septic tank pump-outs.  The West Howe Sound Community Plan, which received  amended second reading on  June 11, 1987, is based on a  technical background document  prepared by the Regional  District, comments received  from provincial agencies, and  input obtained from citizens  through initial drafts of a settlement plan and through a "resident's planning committee''. It  applies to the settled portions of  Electoral Area F and presents  goals, objectives, and policies  for future growth and development.  Maybe we should opt out."  Director Jack Marsden  agreed, "People in Tuwanek  don't have access to it. It's  useless. I think we should get rid  of it."  Wilson however -^disagreed  saying that the service wasn't  useless, only inadequate, while  Gibsons Alderman Norm Peterson said that the service was being abused.  Asked for clarification of his  comment in an interview last  Friday, Peterson told the Coast  News that while he wasn't sure  what use was specified in the bylaw covering the minibus, he  had always assumed it was for  the use of older people and  those who didn't drive.  "I see people taking it simply  as a convenience," he said and  pointed out that it is in competition with the privately owned  Gibsons minibus service.  The issue was referred to the  Transportation Committee.  Directors said they had been  receiving angry phone calls  from residents whose assessments had gone up or down  with no explanation of what's  happening.  Chairman Jim Gurney told  the meeting that the recent  changes in assessments and  other factors make it impossible  to explain increases on a general  basis.  In order to help people figure  out what's happening, the  SCRD has set up a small program where people can bring in  this year's tax notice and last  year's tax notice and a staff  member will explain what has  happened on an individual  basis.  He also reminded directors  that things won't necessarily improve next year because the provincial government has already  announced that they will be taking a bigger bite of the rural  taxes collected. This year the  amount taken by the province  to cover rural roads and policing was 13 mils, next year it will  be increased to 17 mils.  Things are also looking bad  for resort owners. In a letter  received later at the same  meeting, the Village of Telkwa  wrote to bring the SCRD's attention to the fact that the new  provincial budget states:  "Effective September 30,  1988, for taxation in 1989, the  preferential tax treatment of  seasonal resort properties will  be eliminated. Seasonal resorts  will be taxed in the same way as  other commercial properties."  Directors were uncertain of  how many property owners on  the Sunshine Coast would be affected and agreed that they  needed more information  before they could assess the  local impact of that change.  Before the end of the meeting, Chairman Jim Gurney  served notice that he would be  introducing a motion to be sent  to the Union of B.C. Municipa  lities (UBCM) convention "that  the UBCM undertake to study  how taxes are spent that are  raised from rural taxation."  He said that Richard Taylor,  Executive Director of the  UBCM, had told him that such  a study was done by the provincial government several years  ago but they had refused to  release the results.

Mewhort calls  for restraint  SAVINGS ARE YOURS  SPECIAL INVENTORY  CLEARANCE ^&  Our most durable SUNDECKING  (the last deck covering  you'll need to buy)  sq. yd.  School Board Trustee Dave  Mewhort wants the School  Board to go back to restraint.  He will be bringing forth a motion at the next board meeting,  "That over the next four weeks  the board continue to meet in an  effort to make significant and  real cuts in the 1987/88 budget  so that this district can carry a  major surplus into the 1988/89  fiscal period, to avoid further  tax increases."  He states, "The current  school tax rate in School  District No. 46 had risen by 50.7  per cent for property owners  Gibsons to  restructure?  The Town of Gibsons has  received a $5000 grant from the  Ministry of Municipal Affairs  to conduct a study on the  feasibility of restructuring to expand the town's boundaries.  The announcement was made at  last week's meeting of the Planning Committee.  The study was originally  recommended in the Gibsons  Economic Strategy which was  completed earlier this year. In  her letter to the town, Minister  Rita Johnston suggested that  the town work closely with  ministry staff members when  implementing the study.  Clerk administrator Lorraine  Goddard told the Coast News  that meetings would soon be  held between ministry personnel  and Gibsons representatives to  establish guidelines for the  study, before a restructuring  committee is set up.  Burnside  resigns  from EDC  Gibsons Chamber of Commerce representative John  Burnside has resigned from the  Economic Development Commission (EDC).  In a letter to the Sunshine  Coast Regional District (SCRD)  received at their meeting last  week, Burnside said, "My role  on the commission as I saw it  was to provide continuity  following the able contribution  made by former Acting Chairman Barry Wilbee. It is my  judgement that the transition  from the original commission to  the present is now complete."  The SCRD will now be requesting that the Gibsons  Chamber send a list of three  people from which they will  select a new representative.  Sechelt Alderman Joyce  Kolibas moved that the board  send Burnside a letter accepting  his resignation and expressing  their gratitude for the work he's  done.
