 Taxpayers irate  ���_�����������_���I���ftMMBMB������a��H_HM_�����WWM���>���_���^���M_B������MQ_a_a_�����N__DB^_B  Sechelt Plan  meets opposition  Sechelt Council's hopes for  speedy passage of the Sechelt  Community Plan were dashed  last week when more than 100  indignant taxpayers crowded into the Sechelt Seniors' Hall to  protest the lack of consultation  and several aspects of the proposed plan.  In response to. the turn-out,  Mayor Bud Koch announced  that there would be changes to  the plan and another public  hearing is scheduled for July 24.  Council was obviously taken  aback by the angry tenor of the  meeting which at one point saw  allegations of wrong-doing and  threats of legal action being  traded back and forth on the  floor of the meeting.  Main areas of protest centred  around commercial development zoning proposed for Davis  Bay and Tuwanek, spot industrial zoning in Tuwanek,  pollution of Sechelt Inlet and  the failure of the Planning  Committee to hold public information meetings.

Coast. At  last week's meeting of the Task  Force, SCRD Chairman Jim  Gurney brought forth a motion  that "the SCRD inform the  minister that unless B.C. Transit is able to fulfill its obligations  by the provision of an extra  bus, the regional district must  consider withdrawing from the  program."   The   motion   was  made in reaction to a recent letter from the provincial government stating that there are no  funds available at this time for  an additional minibus.  Gurney explained to the  meeting that the bus service was  originally a wholly provincial  program called Handidart,  which provided transportation  for the handicapped. The  SCRD originally decided to  contribute to the program so  that it could be expanded into a  community service.  Although the service has  recently been told that it will be  .getting a larger bus, that will  X)nly provide more space, not an  expanded service. He justified  his motion by saying, "I can't  condone collecting taxes from  people for something that they  have no-access to.".,������...,..;.,.,   -7~  Area" A' Director;;'Gordon^;  Wilson countered, "People pay  taxes for many things they don't  have access to. People pay for  hospitals that, hopefully, they'll  never use. Many people who  live here pay school taxes but  have nobody in school."  He expressed a deep concern  for the trend of the current pro  vincial government to privatize  specialized medical facilities,  like the Handidart service.  When Gurney stated, "Handidart is a provincial program.  Let them pick it up and run with  it." Wilson responded, "That's  ������ijhstscares the hell,out ofjne.' I  don't think they'll pick it up."  Director McGillivray suggested that the letter clearly spell  out that the SCRD has no intention of picking up the Handidart service if they opt out of  the minibus program. The motion was passed with Directors  Wilson and Kolibas opposed.  Between Koch, Strom and Gurney  No agreement on enterprise funding  Wednesday, July 1 is Canada  Day. The day the British North  America Act declared that all  provinces and territories were to  be united to form a whole, the  Confederation of Canada.

After a  -meeting   of   the   three   and  ^Economic Development Coin-  emission   (EDC)   Chairman  "<Maurice   Egan,   the   mayors  "presented   their   proposals   to  ;their   municipal  councils  this  iweek.  >'   At Gibsons Council meeting  :'bn Tuesday, Mayor Strom told  ^council that the projects she was  considering committing  funds  to   were:   the   industrial   site  "survey, an Arts Council coordinator,   promotion   of  industrial sites, and a retirement  survey.  Alderman Bob Maxwell expressed the opinion that contrary to reassurances that the  arts.co-ordinator position was a  one-time endeavour, he was  afraid that it would be an ongoing position and commented,  "This matter of an arts coordinator for the Arts Council  was never brought up by the  ���EDC until Egan became chairman."  Norm Peterson was disturbed  that the industrial site survey  was already completed before it  had been approved by the  municipal councils and pointed  out that Gibsons has completed  ^their own economic strategy  which includes recommendations that have not been followed up for lack of funding.  Other aldermen also expressed reservations about the  amount of money being directed   towards   projects   whose  benefits to Gibsons are questionable and it was agreed to  refer the matter for further  discussion to the next meeting  of the Finance Committee.  Sechelt Council expressed  similar reservations when  Mayor Koch presented his suggested projects at Wednesday  night's meeting. The list was  identical to that proposed at  Gibsons council with the exception of the industrial site survey  which Koch was not interested  in funding.  Like their Gibsons counterparts, Sechelt aldermen expressed   doubt   that  the  arts  co-  Coffin makes case  for theatre project  ordinator position was only for  this year. Sechelt also has  several economic development  projects on the go which could  make use of these funds and  council agreed to postpone  discussion of the dispersement  of Partners in Enterprise funds  until their July meeting.  E  Chamber tax talk  This month's Sechelt Chamber of Commerce meeting will  be held at lunch time tomorrow, Tuesday, June 23 at Pebbles.  Representatives from the Regional District (J. Gurney and  L. Jardine), Sechelt Municipality (Mr. Koch), School District  46 (Mrs. Clayton and Mr. Mills) will be there to answer questions re increased tax and water rates.  If you wish to attend please call Jennifer at the Chamber  office in Sechelt today for a reservation, 885-3100. Cost is  $12.   Corby Coffin, recently hired  executive director for the Gibsons Landing Theatre Project,  introduced himself to the  regional district's Arts Liaison  and Support Committee meeting last Friday and outlined his  fundraising plans. He began by  telling the committee, "I think a  theatre for the Sunshine Coast  is a necessity, not a luxury."  "The money to build the  theatre can and will be raised,"  he assured the meeting. "Efforts such as the Father's Day  car wash are more an attempt to  get the community aware of and  involved with the theatre," he  explained. Most monies will be  raised from government funding bodies and private and corporate donations, as well as major fundraising events.  One of the first such events is  being scheduled for late July,  when the Caravan Stage Company will be coming to the  Coast. This is the only horse-  drawn stage company in North  America and was established 19  years ago.  Gibsons Alderman Lilian  Kunstler. was attending the  meeting and commented,  "We're all looking for  something to attract tourists  and have something for tourists  to do. These aren't simply fundraising events, they're tourist  attractions too."  Chairman Gordon Wilson  expressed his belief that the  government has an obligation to  finance the arts for the benefit  of the community as a whole.  He told Coffin that he had  already suggested to Rai Purdy,  president of the Gibsons Landing Theatre Project Society.  Although he had been contacted by members of the committee and told that was "not  the way they wanted to go," he  still feels that, "...it is  dangerous to lead people to  believe that it can be self-  supporting."  Mr. Coffin explained that  much of his personal experience  had been in the United States  where there is no government  funding for the arts and said  that he believed the proposed  theatre could be supported  through ticket sales and private  and corporate donations. He  will soon be receiving financial  statements and operating  budgets from the Vernon  Powerhouse Theatre, a community theatre which has successfully operated 'in the black'  for many years.

He said  the youths were anxious to pur  sue the idea of setting aside a  recreational area for skateboarding.  The group is planning on circulating a petition to indicate  support for the idea. Maxwell  suggested that if a group was in  terested in raising funds for the  construction of a necessary  'rink' possibly in Dougal Park,  the town should consider matching funds.  The issue was referred to the  Planning Committee. 2.  Coast News, June22,1987  iiwvbhmww       -1 ��-���"^TOnu���miii pfSSLi i  tj  junf eeling nonsense  The conviction grows that the Sunshine Coast Regional  District (SCRD) has reached a dangerous level of insulated  unawareness or indifference to the taxpayers they were  elected to serve. |  Specifically we make this charge against the core of the  board, namely Chairman Jim Gurney, Directors Shaske  and McGillivray, and, to our regret, Director Peggy Connor. Director Gordon Wilson is frequently the sole voice  of common sense on the board, Director Jack Marsden  seems unfailingly zealous on behalf of taxpayers he no  longer represents and the municipal representatives are  resigned to being consistently outvoted by the first four  named who have long been voting as a bloc.  A couple of weeks ago we witnessed the outrageous  spectacle of Director McGillivray bulling through a reluctant board meeting a proposal that Larry and Mary Braun  who operate Seaview Market should be approached about  downzoning their property for the convenience of the  SCRD planning department, and last week were treated to  the petulant and unfeeling nonsense perpetrated by this  board in the matter of the minibus service.  We urge all readers of good conscience to read carefully  and with consideration the letter from minibus user Anne  Miles which appears on Page three. It makes the case for  the minibus, however inadequate the service may be, in  compelling and human terms.  The action of Chairman Jim Gurney, by now well into  his Napoleonic phase, in moving that the service be dropped because it cannot at the moment be enlarged is an attempt to play petulant power politics with Victoria at the  expense of the poor and the unfortuante among us. It is  nothing short of despicable.  Nor can one let the matter go without asking where the  long-standing Transportation Chairman was during the  debate. Daily, John Shaske watches from his pharmacy as  the minibus drops off its passengers at the medical clinic  next door or at his pharmacy for drug prescriptions. How  can he justify his supine following of Gurney in this most  human of circumstances. It is a disgrace to us all.  Another lesson  It was only a matter of time before Sechelt Council's  pell mell and haphazard approach to decision making ran  afoul of the taxpayers and council spent a very uncomfortable afternoon indeed last Saturday at a public hearing  which became a town hall meeting on the Community  Plan.  To repeat, the only way to avoid conflict is to have full  consultation in advance of law-making. The lesson was  brought home again to Sechelt Council last Saturday afternoon.  5 YEARS AGO  Residents of Egmont discover a large marijuana plantation on a nearby hilltop while fighting a forest fire  which destroyed 10 acres of forest and threatened to  engulf the small coastal community.  Chevron Canada Limited makes application to  dismantle the Davis Bay Wharf.  The SCRD reports pumping 300,000 gallons a day but  are still unable to supply water to all residents. The.  Gower Point area is particularly badly hit.  Four occupants escape drowning when their boat The  Wise Guy runs onto rocks near Salmon Rock and begins  sinking. The boat made it across the gap on its auxiliary  motor and was beached near Pebbles Beach.  10 YEARS AGO  Regional Board Chairman Peter Hoemberg travels to  Victoria to meet with Premier Bill Bennett to protest  changes to the Islands Trust.  A decision may be made this week as to whether Gibsons will join the regional water system.  20 YEARS AGO  William Sneddon of Gibsons Elementary School wins  the Third Annual Coast News Spelling Bee.

SUBSCRIPTION RATES  Canada: 1 year $35; 6 months $20; Foreign; 1 year $40  Fleming on education  Let's speak for the children  by Frances Fleming  Editor's note: Mrs. Fleming had  a distinguished career in education which included a well-  remembered stint as principal of  Pender Harbour High School.  The time has come for someone to speak up for the  children in this school district.  The current battles, verbal and  behavioural, surrounding our  school budget should cause all  thinking adults to hang their  heads in shame.  First of all, the kids are being  let   down   by   their   parents.  Where are the heated parent  meetings demanding that  teacheb start to earn their/  salaries again by giving the kids ;  a full program? How many  parents have spoken out in  favour of the budget? How  many against? Do parents know  what is in the budget? Do they  care?  Secondly, the kids are being  let down by their teachers. I  once walked a teachers' picket  line over the pension issue. I lost  a day's pay. To my view, 'work  to rule' is a chintzy, despicable  way to collect a day's pay for  half a day's work. Teachers are  not impressing anyone. They  are really hurting the kids. Do  any of them care? Have they  considered how their actions are  turning people against the  budget which was quite generous to them?  Thirdly, the kids are being let  down by the Board of School  Trustees. The trustees are beginning to pussy-foot around some  courageous decisions they made  to upgrade the schools. If the  board is faint-hearted now,  under mounting pressure, our  kids will be doomed to mediocrity for years to come.  '" Fourthly," the kids are being  let down by the editor of the  Press and a number of irate and  vocal taxpayers. There is a section of the adult population that  takes no interest in shcool except at tax time. Many of the  most irate do not qualify for a  homeowners' grant, being  absentee landlords or would-be  developers. Let them take their  lumps. When they sell or rent,  they are never averse to men  tioning the excellence of the  local school as a talking point.  Senior citizens are well accommodated. Trying to down-grade  schools is a direct attack on the  property values of a community. Every good realtor knows  this. Don't they?  Fifthly, our kids are being let  down by the Social Credit  government. The premier and  cabinet watch with amusement  as local boards around the province are taking the heat for  school costs. Are 'irate citizens'  swamping our MLA with letters  and telephone calls? How many  letters from the Sunshine Coast  have been sent to the premier  and cabinet?  Sixthly, our kids are being let  down by retired educators like  me who have been sitting back  and playing the part of interested observers. Having  taught numerous students here  on the Sunshine Coast I know  how they respond to support  and encouragement. All the  drug and alcohol programs in  the world won't save them from  themselves if their schools let  them down. They must feel  abandoned,   the   objects   of  grudging charity, neglected by  their teachers, a burden to the  taxpayers, a problem to their  parents. What an atmosphere  for children to grow up in!  It's time we took stock of  ourselves. Parents should each  and every one convey to  teachers their displeasure with  'work to rule'. Teachers should  individually and collectively inform their union bosses that  they will no longer conform to  unacceptable behaviour.  The Board of School Trustees  should stand firm and take their  chances at the next election.  Taxpayers who are sufficiently  intelligent to see the needs  should publicly accept the current levy. Every voter should  pressure the present provincial  government to modify the funding formula. We should be  preparing a brief for the Royal  Commission.  Mr. Editor, the quality of  education and the quality of life  on the Sunshine Coast is under  a very real threat. The question  I wish to put to you and your  readers is: Who's for the kids?  I, for one, wish to stand up  and be counted.  Bill 19  Missippification of B.C.  by Howard White  It's about time somebody in  this riding tapped MLA Harold  Long on the shoulder and told  him the honeymoon is over.  Nobody should get away with  claiming to be "a union man"  while at the same time supporting Bills 19 and 20.  "This bill (19) will not cause  confrontation," said Long on  June 1. "It is a good bill and it  is going to make companies and  unions get along."  So far Bills 19 and 20 have  been responsible for more  labour disruption than anything  since Bill Bennett's infamous  restraint package of 1983. Every  time I open the paper I see  moderate labour leaders like  Ken Georgetti vowing "a chaotic province...will struggle  through years of industrial  upheaval and lose its market if  the legislation is not  withdrawn.'"  As a local businessman whose  livelihood depends on the  neighbourhood being contentedly at work, I'd like to  know, Harold, when we can. expect the peace and love to  begin?  Labour peace is what you get  when you bring in legislation  that treats both sides in industrial relations even-  handedly. The Labour Code of  1973 accomplished this and the  proof is that during the next  decade it brought about a sharp  reduction in the number of  man-hours lost due to strikes.  At the same time B.C.'s average  wage rate dropped in relation to  the national average, and the  national average dropped in  relation to the other industrialized countries (last I  heard we were sliding below Ita  ly into 14th place). Union  membership also dropped,  while the non-union sector grew  rapidly. Industry seemed content, and despite a continuous  stream of legislative setbacks,  labour was bearing its losses  with surprising stoicism. At the  point VanderZalm chose to  blast the Labour Code into oblivion with BUI 19, there was no  notable agitation for a change  coming from either labour or  management. It was all quiet on  the western front.  Far from trying to create  labour peace, VanderZalm  deliberately risked labour war in  order to impose his and his antiunion backers' secret labour  agenda. We can't forget him  nervously musing to himself  just before unveiling the bills,  "Some labour leaders aren't going to like this..."  The changes wrought by Bills  19 and 20 are not even-handed.  Everyone, even VanderZalm,  agrees that they are adverse to  labour. Harold Long admits  this by making an excuse for it.  "The unions became too  powerful. We are bringing  things back to the centre," he  told the Powell River News.  Union leaders across the province believe the new rules push  them right over the edge, and so  far their actions suggest their  belief is heartfelt. It has been a  long time since we have heard  B.C. labour leaders vowing to  go to jail to resist a piece of  legislation.  Perhaps even more impressive to the uninvolved  observer is the stand of neutral,  and even pro-management parties opposing the legislation.  Jim Dorsey, secretary of the Arbitrators Association of B.C.,  risked his career by speaking  out against the bill, which he  said, "degrades the role of trade  unions." Bruce McColl,  another respected arbitrator,  said, "it intends to eviscerate  the powers of trade unions."  Apart from the non-union construction industry, business has  not come out strongly in  defense of the bill. And of  course, VanderZalm's own  Deputy Minister of Labour,  Graham Leslie, broke ranks to  denounce Bill 19 as an invitation to "labour relations and investment disaster."  What Bills 19 and 20 really  represent, as anyone who has  been paying attention to Socred  economic strategy over the past  decade recognizes, is yet  another attempt to improve the  climate for business at labour's  expense. This philosophy is  written right into the mandate  of the new Industrial Relations  Council, which is directed to  serve the interests, not of  worker-management harmony,  but of a "competitive market  economy."  The naked intent of Bills 19  and 20 is to divide worker  organizations for easy conquest,  but this purpose is concealed  behind a smokescreen of defending "individual worker  rights." Like every reactionary  who ever set about to break a  union, VanderZalm denies the  rights of the many in order to  bolster the rights of the solitary  malcontent who refuses to pay  dues. We are asked to believe  this is motivated by the noblest  of democratic sentiments, sentiments which vanish when  discussion turns to the need for  improving the Human Rights  Act.  iNew sections of Bill 19 which  permit management to interfere  with certification drives, which  encourage companies to dodge  their union agreements by forming new companies on paper,  which encourage employers to  seek injunctions against job action, which outlaw boycotts,  which outlaw agreements banning non-union-made goods, and  which outlaw the closed shop  for teachers, can only be seen as  strategic blows aimed at crippling the union movement.  Labour Minister Hanson has  admitted many of these clauses  were drawn up with the help of  Don Jordan, the lawyer who  represented J.C. Kirkhoff Company in its high-profile battles  against the construction unions.  This underlines the real intent of  the new act, which is to move  B.C. in the direction of right-to-  work jurisdictions like the states  of Arkansas and Mississippi,  whose low wages and poor  working conditions look good  to a certain type of cutthroat  businessman.  When Harold Long repeats  the VanderZalm line that Bill 19  will attract investment by  creating a stable work force, he  is referring to a work force that  is stable because it hasn't the  organized strength to stand up  and fight for its members, and  will be knocked down by an  iron-fisted larWr czar the  minute it does. If Long thinks  this is good unionism, he is  some union man.  I personally think the Social  Credit under VanderZalm is  wrong in even attempting to sell  low on the world labour  market. Unless he lowers our  standard of living to match the  packing-crate dwellers of Brazil,  it's a contest we can't win. This  Please turn to page 22 Coast News, June 22,1987  states Jier case  Editor:  I have some comments to  make with regard to Alderman  Norm Peterson's opinion that  the mini-bus service is being  abused and that it duplicates the  services of the Gibsons bus.  The Gibsons bus does not  make runs up to Sechelt. How  does Alderman Peterson expect  Gibsons residents who do not  own cars to visit patients at St.  Mary's Hospital, to see specialists at the Sechelt Clinic (the eye  specialist and the pediatrician  come to Sechelt, but not to Gibsons), to keep appointments  with Family Court counsellors,  to see their social workers at the  Ministry of Social Services and  Housing, or to appear in Provincial Court?  Sure, there are other ways.  There is the Maverick. This runs  three times a day, each way.  One can leave Gibsons for  Sechelt at 10:10, arriving at  10:50. That gives you exactly 35  minutes to conduct your  business before a bus goes back  at 11:25. Otherwise it's wait until 7:30 in the evening to return!  The next Maverick to leave Gibsons goes at 4:10 pm, arriving  after many services are closed  for the day. The next one is in  the evening.  One can take a taxi, however,  at about $20 each way, if you  can afford a taxi you probably  already own a car! One can  hitch-hike, but I'm sure Alderman Peterson is not in favour of  women and children having to  hitch-hike.  The fourth and best alternative,   though   not   always  available, is the mini-bus. We  really could not do without it.  Sometimes I've gone one way  ARTIST  IN  RESIDENCE  Lionel Thomas, RCA  Residence 885-2270  On-going Art Classes  Mondays 2-4:30 pm  AND 7-9:30 PM  * Landscape painting '  * Historical techniques  * Individual tutorials  12 Sessions per Course  Lord Jim's Resort Hotel  Halfmoon Bay 885-7038  689-5441  by Maverick and one way by  mini-bus, but the mini-bus has  been essential if intolerable inconvenience is to be avoided.  And the service needs to be expanded. Since those with health  problems may reserve a ride, the  bus is sometimes too full to take  you back. I was once stranded  in Sechelt, on a cold December  afternoon when the last returning mini-bus was full. I did not  feel like entertaining my tired,  hungry, three year old until 7:30  pm when the Maverick was due.  That is how I found out how  much the taxi fare is!  I did not, in fact have enough  cash for the taxi and had,to get  a friend to pay for part of it at  the other end. It was that or  hitch-hike in the cold, with  darkness rapidly approaching.  I'm glad that Gordon  Wilson, at least, recognizes the  need to improve this vital service and am sorry that Gurney,  Marsden and Peterson are so  lacking in empathy. I guess  these gentlemen don't realize  that the cost of running a vehicle is prohibitive for a low-  income person. That is why I  don't have one.

The season,  which opens in the Gibsons  Elementary Gym (transformed  into a theatre for the occasion)  on July 10 and runs through until August 2, offers everything  from the Teens '87 variety show  on July 15, to thought-  provoking drama.  A high point will be the arrival in Gibsons of the internationally renowned touring company, Caravan Stage. The Gibsons Landing Theatre Project is  sponsoring this event, which  takes place over three days from  July 20, when the caravan  makes its way into town,  through July 21, when the  Cosmodrome, a 400 seat tent, is  put up on the site at Gibsons  Elementary field, to July 22.  when the show, A Good Baby,  goes on at 7:30 pm.  A Good Baby is a modern  melodrama by Canadian writer  Leon Rooke, and combines  comedy, music, dance, mask  work and drama in an energetically physical show.  The Play Parade includes  four evenings with the popular  Wives' Tales, Storytellers, who  have much new material to offer as well as some of their  favourites from previous years.  July 10 is the gala opening  night with Seascape with Sharks  and Dancer by Don Nigro; it's a  modern love story, with a twist,  in three acts. Local productions  on other evenings include a program of three one-act plays:  Gordon Wilson's Sam; One  Spring Morning by Cheryl  Thiessen, directed by Joe  Austin; After Magritte by Tom  Stoppard, directed by Betty  Keller.  Talking With... by Jane Martin is a full length play which  weaves together the stories of 11  different women. Driftwood  has taken a new step this year  with the engaging of Ted Price,  a director with extensive community theatre experience and  an adjudicator with Theatre  B.C., to work with Nest Lewis  and Dianne Evans on the direction of this play.  Tickets and programs will be  available next week at many different locations both in Sechelt  and Gibsons. Tickets are $5 for  each performance, except for  Caravan Stage tickets which are  $8 for adults and $4 for children  in advance, or $10 and $5 at the  door.

What determines school  taxes?  Taxes paid are arrived at by  multiplying the assessed value  of the property by the tax rate  levied by the taxing authority  and dividing by 1000. The  school board has nothing to do  with assessed values but it does  set the school board budget,  which in turn sets the tax rate  for school purposes. The local  share of the school board  budget divided by total assessed  values further divided by 1000  equals school tax rate.  Then why has the school tax  rate gone up so much over last  year, from 5.19714 to 7.83200,  a 50.7 per cent increase?  Three reasons:  1. The district lost a lot of  assessed values, partly by reduction of some values on the  Coast and partly because the  provincial government transferred Bowen Island to School  District No. 45. Even if we had  still been under restraint and  had no local extra programs,  the tax rate would have gone up  from 5.2 to 6.2, a 19 per cent increase.  2. Had the board budget  stayed the same as last year, the  tax rate would have gone up to  7.3, which is a 40 per cent increase, partly because of the  lower assessment, and partly for  a more complicated reason.  Two years ago the provinicial  government changed the school  districts' financial year to match  for that  CUSTOM  DESIGN LOOK  Choose from our large selection of  ^Custom Drapery & Bedspread Fabrics,'  -<i  !���'  m  n\  .-  nil  "*s  SkVi  ���1 \  -���:i  1 >  m  m  l_  i\:&  ���*�����.

Consequently the taxes  in 1986 paid 60 per cent of the  1985-86 school budget, which  was the last year of restraint,  and 40 per cent of the current  1986-87 school budget. This  year's taxes are paying 60 per  cent of the current 1986-87  school budget and 40 per cent of  the upcoming 1987-88 school  budget.  3. So the extra rate associated  with this year's budget decisions  is in fact only .532 or 11 per cent  of an increase. It's just coming  on top of the other increases  that it seems so much.  The  board  considered  thejjj  budget on a program by program basis for each of the 98  programs   and   sub-programs  which comprise the educational  system here, and identified the  needs  and  costs  of offering  quality service in each program.  What are the extra things  which the board is planning to  do this year which have increased this budget over last year's?  Extra staff: .5 kindergarten  teacher, 1.6 classroom teachers,  1.1 learning assistance teachers,  .55 librarian time, .4 counselling  time, 1.5 teacher of the handicapped,  .5 psychometrician,  .5 elementary music, .5 elementary science, .5 career preparation   and   .5   computer   coordinator. The board is also  planning   on   reintroducing  supervision aides, adding a clerk  at the District Resources Centre,  extending   the   services   of  a  special counsellor  from  February 1988 to June 1988, and  providing   a  little   more   administrative  assistance in  the  schools.   Total   extra   cost,  $408,000.  In the Maintenance Department, to improve the level of  maintenance and to permit  some upgrading, it is planned to  add $114,000, approximately  $70,000 of which will go on  labour and $44,000 on  materials.  In the board's own operation  of the District Office, they plan  increased information flow to  the public, and they have one  time costs associated with the  separation costs of the former  Superintendent of Schools, plus  the retirement and replacement  costs of the secretary-treasurer,  together with a proposed consultant study. Total extra cost:  $83,000.  There are staff training programs in computer instruction,  anti-child   abuse   measures,  . THE_   elementary core French (not  French Immersion), gifted,  together with increases in the  funds assigned to general professional development and in-  service training. Total extra  cost: $79,000.  Then there is double the  library book budget, increase in  the Resource Centre budget,  double the Fine Arts budget and  reintroduction of the swimming  program. It is also planned to  put a second telephone line into  the schools which only have one  at present and to increase the  equipment replacement budget.  Total extra cost: $89,000.  f- There is also planned an increase in the level of new additional equipment purchased,  mostly associated with the  enhanced Elementary Science  program, a Career Preparation  Program at Elphinstone, and an  upgrade in the school board office computer. Total extra cost:  $25,200.  The fiscal framework recognizes teacher salary increases a  year in arrears. So, the local  taxpayer always carries the cost  of payrises for that year. Last  year's payrise was 2.65 per cent,  this year's is 3.1 per cent.

Brownies, the six to nine year  olds, receive their wings if they  have fulfilled all the requirements of the program and then  move up to the Guides, the nine  to 12 year olds.  Other groups the girls qualify  to join are Pathfinders, the 12  to 15 year olds, and the  Rangers, those who are 16 and  older.  This year there were 23  Brownies who 'flew up' to the  Guides, either the Second Gibsons Guide Company or the  First Roberts Creek. The theme  chosen for this year's ceremony  was Space.  Two girls, Roxanne Wiseman  and Bonnie Stewart of the  Pathfinders completed all the  requirements for the Canada  Cord.  ���: The Canada Cord signifies  successful completion of three  stages of increasing difficulty  made up of 'challenges' which  require a competency in skills  and know-how in such areas as  camping, outdoors, home,  community and world.  ;' To encourage friendship, cooperation and the helping of  others, 'challenges' are done in  small groups or in the larger  unit.  Both Roxanne and Bonnie  have been members of Brownies  and Guides prior to their.three  years in Pathfinders. Both girls  will be going into Grade 10 this  fall. Bonnie has been busy for  the past seven years in dancing  classes, and was selected last  year to appear in the Dance  Honours Night in Gibsons.  Roxanne has accomplished  her school and Guide work  despite a long battle with  cancer.  At the May 25 'fly up' a  highlight was the awarding of  the Sommerville Citizenship  prize of $150 to Roxanne by the  provincial commissioner. This  was the second time, the; first  was in 1985, that Roxanne has  been given this award. The  award is given to the girl who by  act and example best expresses  civic responsibility. Bravo Roxanne!  Both Bonnie and Roxanne  will attend a Canada Cord  awarding ceremony in North  Vancouver on June 21. This is a  special occasion to which family  and public dignitaries are invited.  Mrs. Agnes Labonte, Elphinstone District Commissioner,  says that there are openings this  September for girls to join  Guides, Pathfinders, or  Rangers even though they may  not have previously been  members. j  At present there are companies of Girl Guides jpn the  Sunshine Coast from (pibsons  to Pender Harbour. Inquire of  your nearest company."In the  Gibsons area the leaders are  Mrs. Wiseman and Mrs; Fraser.  ���'The Girl Guides provide  programs that are interesting  for every age group. And there  are special outings from time to  time that we can send representatives to," said Mrs. Labonte,  "like the one recently to  Rosedale which 88 of our girls  from the Sunshine Coast attended."  NOT FOR KIDS  A present that arrived by mail  turned out to be a Dr. Suess  book. The blurb on the back  cover states: "...not a children's  book. Well, not immediately.  You buy a copy for your child  now and give it to him on his  70th birthday." Geisel (Seuss) is  now 82, and quite plainly not  yet through turning out books.  You're Only Old Once is a  book for obsolete children, he  says, and dedicates it to the class  of 1925. The theme is the agony  of the complete physical examination, "for spleen readjustment and muffler repair."  Vocabulary is fairly mature  and could be read easily by the  nut still watching hockey in  midsummer. A gift for the guy  who grumbles about getting  socks for his birthday.

Celebration  Days set  in Sechelt  by Ken Collins  Everything's all set for a successful Sechelt Celebration Day  this Saturday.  Floats will be assembling at  9:30 am at the Sechelt Indian  District grounds. An hour later  will be the float judging and  then what is expected to be a  large parade at 11 am down the  main street of Sechelt.  At 12:30 the official  ceremonies at the Dock will take  place, which will include cake  cutting, presentations by  honoured guests, and an appearance of the Sechelt Legion  Pipe Band.  The highlight of the day will  be the Small Ships Society performing at Porpoise Bay. These  are miniature square rigged sailing ships that perform mock sea  battles complete with the sound  of cannon fire and the accompanying puffs of smoke.  It must be remembered that  these little boats are accurate  working models of the sailing  ships of old and maneuver entirely under sail. For those who  have never seen their show  before, it is a sight not easily  forgotten.  While the small ships are battling it out, an air show will be  performed by an acrobatic team  of bi-planes called the Swift  Birds. One of their members is  planning to do a fly-past over  the parade route.  These events will be followed  at 3 pm with Indian war canoe  races starting at the Indian  Church waterfront.  All day events from 10 am to  4 pm will include street and mall  entertainment by local musicians, clowns and other performers, a Sunshine Coast Arts  Council craft fair at Cowrie and  Inlet, and the Sunshine Coast  Aquaculture Association will  hold a seafood taste test at the  Dock.

Ted Farewell new rentalsman  by Larry Grafton  Micky Cornwell has rel-  inguished his position with the  branch as rentalsman for the  hall. He has certainly done a  bang up job for us the last couple of years and a sincere vote  of thanks is in order.  For those of you who may at  some future date require information regarding availability of  the hall, Ted Farewell is our  new rentalsman. He can be  reached at 885-5292.  SEA OTTERS  Up until four or five years  ago, one of the pleasures of living on our waterfront was watching the antics of a goodly  number of sea otters as they  went about their regular (and  sometimes mischievous) everyday business of providing food  for themselves and their young  families. The rocky breakwater  at Selma Park provided an excellent shelter for their dens. It  was quite common to see three  or four adults sunning  themselves in the early morning  on anybody's convenient swimming raft.  Alas! No more! On page two  of last week's Press a news item  indicates Jamie Stephens is trying to track down the culprit  who slaughtered at least four of  these lovely and entertaining  animals and threw the carcasses  in the Garden Bay dump with a  bunch of salmon. What a pay  off for doing what comes  naturally, providing food for  their existence.  COMMUNITY PLAN  What will the District of  Sechelt look like in the year  2000? The blueprints are in the  making and certainly everybody  isn't going to be bubbling over  with joy. The by-law outlining  the new community plan is  available for viewing at the  Municipal Office of the District  of Sechelt. The proposed expansions and changes certainly provide food for thought. You  should have a look at the plans!  Interesting!  SUMMER SOLSTICE  Did you notice how much  shorter the day was today in  comparison to Sunday? The sun  Sechelt    Scenario  Ready for Parade  by Peggy Connor, 885-9347  The parade is starting at 11  am on Saturday, June 27. If  you are in the parade, assembly  is on the Sechelt Indian District  grounds at 9 am. Cake cutting  at the Dock at 12:30, then there  is the sail past and fly past, Indian war canoe races and a  mock sea battle by the Small  Ships Society.  SECHELT LIBRARY  The Sechelt Library is open  on Tuesdays from 10:30 am to 1  pm and on Thursdays and  Saturdays from 10:30 am to 4  pm.  The Story Hour for children  at 1 pm on Thursdays will con^  tinue on through the summer.  The storyteller invites the little  ones to come to the library. -jr  B&PWC  The Sunshine Coast Business  and Professional Women held a  picnic meeting for June. This  was at the beautiful garden and  home of Vice-President Jan  Kennedy. The theme was  Hawaiian and everyone came in  appropriate costume making a  room full of colour. Entertainment was provided by four  lovely dancing girls.  The summer picnic for the  regional clubs, usually held on  the Sunshine Coast, will this  August be held at White Rock.  The fall regional meeting will  be held in Sechelt.  The next meeting of the club  will be the third Tuesday in  September.  FRIENDSHIP CENTRE  The Sechelt Friendship Centre is run by volunteers as a  drop in centre and community  supported Second Hand Store.  Here they have drop in evening programs, bridge, card  games, oil painting classes and a  general get together.  They are located in the old  fire hall on Inlet Avenue across  from the Municipal Hall and  welcome volunteers. Open from  10 am to 5 pm and then 6 to 10  pm, Tuesday through Friday.  A fund raiser in process now  is a raffle which will be drawn  on  July 25.   First  prize is a  microwave oven, second an oil  painting, third a dinner for two,  and fourth a lawn chair.  If you wish to meet new people in a friendly atmosphere  drop into the centre.  SHORNCLIFFE ANNUAL  Annual meeting of the  Sechelt Intermediate Care  Society is on Tuesday, June 23,  7:30 pm. Election of directors  and general information.  APPRECIATION TEA  Sunday, June 14 was Auxiliary Appreciation Day at St.  Mary's Hospital. This is the day  the society, board and staff  show how much they appreciate  the work and funds provided by  the hospital auxiliary with its six  branches.  Before the tea there was a  demonstration of equipment  purchased with auxiliary funds.  Unfortunately I can't find my  notes so shall wing it with a  description, which perhaps will  mean more to us average people.  David Kennedy, physiotherapist, had a machine called  TSN. This machine had two  patches electrically connected  that would be put near the spot  where one was experiencing  pain, a small buzzing feeling,  and lo, the pain is eased or  disappears.  Wendy Hunt, Director of  Nursing, showed off the bath  bed. This unique bath may be  rolled up beside a patients bed,  and with the body moved on  easily, the bath bed is lowered  and the water run. When the  bath is over, the water is run off  and the whole thing rises up for  easy removal of the patient back  to bed. A great back saver for  the nurses and definitely more  comfortable for the patient.  Head Nurse Aileen Hansen  explained how the birth of a  baby is monitored with a recorr  ding of labour pains so that  anything unusual can be picked  up. It does more than that but it  was easy to see what a benefit  this machine will be.  Nursing Supervisor Jan Ken-  Please turn to page 20  is on it's way south again so better start getting in the wood for  winter. All the kidding aside it  has been a short winter and spring although weather-wise we  have not done too badly overall.  GENERAL MEETING  The general meeting on June  18 was the last general meeting  until September 17. However,  the Executive Committee will be  carrying on through the summer  with meetings scheduled on July  7 and August 4 at 10 am in our  hall.  The main scheduled member  function prior to the fall sessions will be the Seniors Annual  Picnic at Porpoise Bay Provincial Park on August 13. Mark  this on your calendar in case  you miss my reminder in the  column at a later date. The picnic has been a bright spot each  year for a mid season gabfest (I  don't see that word in the dictionary) with your fellow  members. Don't miss it!

Coast News, June 22,1987  The Ladies' Auxiliary to the Kiwanis Care Home have a well deserved treat at the Mariners' Restaurant.  ���Ken Collins photo  Roberts    Creek  Proposal  dumped  A suggestion to take to  referendum the question of  keeping the Gibsons dump site  open for non-percussible garbage was rejected by last Thursday's meeting of the regional  district's Public Utilities Committee. The suggestion had been  made by Dick Derby, who has  had a lease to operate the waste  disposal site, which he has  cancelled as of the end of June.  Derby recently presented the  regional district with a petition  signed by 300 people who want  to see the site kept open.  However, a financial analysis of  the cost of keeping a caretaker  at the site, which was presented  at the meeting, indicated that an  annual subsidy of approximately $32,000 would be needed.  Director Peggy Connor commented that in taking the question to referendum, "You're  opening a whole can of worms.  Halfmoon Bay will be asking  for the same thing."  Several directors questioned  the wisdom of even considering  raising taxes when many people  are already over-burdened, and  it was decided to let the matter  drop and close the site at the  end of the month.  Work proceeds on Gilker Park  by Jeanie Parker, 885-2163  Work on the playing fields at  Cliff Gilker Park is going great  guns with a terrific response  from members of the community volunteering time, labour,  equipment, and even money!  The land is being cleared and  excavated, will be levelled this  summer, and if all goes well  grass will be planted in the fall.  Some trees have been fallen,  skidded out, and scaled for sale  to add to the coffers. A budget  is being worked out so that a letter can be sent to the Lotteries  Branch next week asking for a  grant. A letter is also being  prepared to ask for other donations: they're tax deductible as  donations to the regional  district.  There's some rush to get the  land cleared, stumps and rocks  excavated, and the slash burned  ., before the fire season so that the  ' rest of the work won't have to  wait.  A big work party is being  planned for August to get as  many volunteers from all the  groups who will use the fields  out raking rocks and levelling  the surface. Plan on bringing a  shovel, wheelbarrow, and picnic  lunch. We'll let you know  when.  GOLF PROPOSAL  A public meeting of the  regional board's Parks Committee last Thursday afternoon  came up with a proposal to provide another nine holes for the  golf course in Roberts Creek.  The recommendation includes  using land under the Hydro  lines and would require giving  up two small corners of Cliff  Gilker Park.  The Sunshine Coast Golf and  Country Club requires approximately 65 acres to expand to 18  holes, something which would  be very attractive to present to  our   future   residents   and  tourists.  The Parks Committee's proposal would see the regional  district purchasing land owned  by MacMillan Bloedel north of  Cliff Gilker Park and adding it  to the land recently acquired  from the Ministry of Forests  and Lands on the other side of  the park, approximately 10  acres of Cliff Gilker Park itself,  and another eight acres that  would have to be purchased  from a private owner.  The regional district would  retain ownership of the land but  allow the golf course to use it in  return for the course's becoming a public one in perpetuity.  The proposal is a compromise  but is more likely to win public  acceptance than one allowing  the golf course to use the whole  top half of the park.  This idea of playing under the  power lines may be objectionable to some but it is not  unique. There are several other  courses around that do so. And  if that land is not used, a much  larger chunk (35 acres) of the  park would be required.  The proposal from the Parks  Committee is just a recommendation. It goes to the regional  board this Thursday for a formal motion. And nothing is  final until it goes to a public  meeting so all concerned will  have a chance to express their  opinions.  OPENING DELAYED  Construction on the addition  is taking a bit longer than anticipated so the Roberts Creek  Community Library will not be  reopening this week. They do  hope to open on Thursday, July  2, and apologize for any inconvenience.  LADIES WINNING  The Roberts Creek Legion  Ladies' Softball team had a  good week.

On Thursday they travelled  to Pender Harbour and this  time Gwen hit a homer to contribute to a 15-9 victory.  The ladies play at Roberts  Creek Elementary this Tuesday  night. They meet the first place  Cedars Inn at 6:30 pm. Come  out and give them support.

Mike obeyed  the injuction but phoned frequently. "Come home," he  pleaded contritely to my  mother. "I'll never drink again.  The cat misses you."  My mother was a very kind  woman but there are limits to  everything. "No," she told him  firmly.  Then he would phone me,  usually drunk, at four in the  morning. "You steal my wife,  you bastard," he raved -logically.  "You're not fit to have a  wife, Marino," I told him.  This nervous standoff persisted for several months,  monitored efficiently by the  police. My mother and I kept  the doors double locked in case  Mike should throw all caution  to the winds and launch a frontal attack. But he must have  been sternly warned against  such action, for he never did.  Then even the phone calls  stopped and word came to us  that Mike was ailing. He was no  longer drinking but he was collapsing in public places, often  mumbling incoherently and  generally behaving in an odd  manner.  "He's sick," my mother said.  "I'll have to go over there. He  has no one else."  I realized that, despite  everything that had happened,  she still cared for Mike. I had  vague suspicions that he was  faking illness to elicit my  mother's sympathy but perhaps  it was genuine. "I guess you'd  better go to him," I said, "but  take one of your friends with  you. And if there's any trouble,  get out of there quickly."  In a couple of hours, my  mother returned. "I've never  seen Mike like that before," she  said worriedly. "I don't know  what's the matter with him but  I'll have to get him out to the  hospital."  At first, the doctors could  find nothing wrong with Mike,  Finally, they gave him a cat  scan.   It   revealed   a   brainy  tumour.   Subsequent   surgery-  proved the growth to be  cancerous and inoperable. It  was a question of months. They  sewed Mike up and sent him  home to die.  I thought a lot about that  tumour. Possibly it had been  pressing on Mike's brain for  years; triggering the bouts of  madness; making him do the inexplicable things he did. Only  God knew. I decided to give  Mike the benefit of the doubt.  In any event, Mike was on  the downward haul. My mother  hired a nurse and moved back  into the Bay Road house. The  death watch began.  I visited the house on  weekends during Mike's declining days. He didn't appear to  resent my presence. More often  than not, he actually seemed  pleased to see me. It was  strange, as though Mike's,  disease had brought about a  personality change; somehow  mellowed him.  I had never seen a man dying  before, particularly one who  had been, to all intents and purposes, my sworn enemy. In contrast to the violence that had  dominated so much of his life,  Mike's slide towards oblivion  was an oddly peaceful process.  He seemed to be in no pain. He  was just an old man drifting  back into childhood.  Speech gradually deserted  Mike and finally, he was unable  to talk at all. Cu Ching, who  had always loved him without  question, sat on his lap. The cat  and I were on wary good terms  by this time and he even let me  pet him off handedly, once in a  while. But he was very much  Mike's creature. I studied his  small, inscrutable piebald face  and wondered if he knew that  his master was dying.  Sometimes we watched cartoons together and Mike laughed silently like a mute, guileless  boy. I laughed with him in a  curious camaraderie that belied  all the bitter years of mutual  dislike. I felt quite charitable  towards him at such moments. I  could see the man he might have  been without the blind  jealousies; the lonely festering  hates. ^  Mike's death was almost?an  anticlimax. They took him back  to the hospital in the final days  and he died there of pneumonia, the euthanasia of age. Later,  my mother, my brother and  myself, stood at the graveside  and heard a preacher droning  words. My mother was sobbing  softly. It was the third time she  had been widowed and I felt  compassion for her. Mike was  nobody's notion of an ideal  husband but, during his sober  periods, they had undoubtedly  shared some happy moments.  As the dirt thudded down on  the coffin, I tried to analyze my  own emotions. They were a  confused mixture of relief and  sadness. I could never truly  forgive Mike for all the grief he  had caused us but my hate for  him had subsided to a remote  thing, somewhere in the back of  my mind. It was true that he  would bother us no more but I  found nothing like joy in the  thought. Death solves no problems. It simply makes way for  new ones.

I think  every human being should be  allowed to have one parent  whose sun is in Cancer for at  least the first 12 years of life.  After that there can be some  problems of overdoing it, but  the almost automatic emotional  nurturing done by a person with  a Cancer sun is a valuable  psychological resource that  should be shared.  People born between June 22  and July 23 have a Cancer sun  sign, and the ruler of Cancer is  the moon, which represents  both emotions and mothering in  astrological charts.  If you were born at that time,  you would do well to get a  calendar that has, not only the  phases of the moon indicated,  but also what sign it is in each  day. More than any other sign  of the zodiac, you may feel  yourself on an emotional roller  coaster which is directly linked  to the phases of the moon and  the signs that it passes through.

This sprawling period when four successive  Georges occupied the British  throne, lasted from 1714 to  1820. It would take many  volumes to explore such a vast  time span in any sort of detail  and this is not the author's intention. He has chosen an impressionistic approach, prowling the eriormbus canvas with  an expert, selective eye; zooming in and out as he chooses. It  is a sprightly, effective technique.  Sinclair-Stevenson divides his  book into four sections, one  devoted to the reign of each of  the Georges.  George I, the German-  speaking prince who ascended  to the British' throne upon the  | death of Queen Anne, was a  Istodgy, unremarkable -fellow  | and the author gives him short  [shrift. He details instead, the"  [story of the tragic affair bet-  jween   George   I's   young,  ! neglected wife, Sophia Dorothea and a Swedish adventurer,  Count   Konigsmarck,   that  [resulted in the lover's murder  and   the   wife's   banishment.  George II was not a great im-  jprovement on his father but,  [unlike that artless monarch, he  ��had an appreciation of music  | and did much to further the  ^career of the composer, Handel.  *But George II is probably best  (remembered for his almost irra-  i tional hatred of his oldest son,  '.Frederick.  Frederick was not  ! even allowed the satisfaction of  [inheriting the throne from his  'vindictive parent since he died  j tragically   young.   Sinclair-  ; Stevenson   sketches   his   brief  {unhappy life with compassion  ��� in a chapter called: 'The Eldest  l Son'.  The third George ruled much  longer than any of the others.  His latterly erratic reign covered  such cataclysmic events as the  American Revolution and the  Napoleonic Wars. Typically  Sinclair-Stevenson gives little  more than a passing nod to  these epic upheavals. The first  chapter of this section called  'The Royal Brood', sorts out  the many offspring of the prolific King and his perpetually  pregnant wife, Charlotte (they  had 15 children). The second  chapter takes an earthy look at  gambling and prize fighting,  two of the most popular diversions of the late 1760's. In the  third chapter, the author ex  amines 'The King's Malady',  the recurring fits of madness  that overwhelmed George III in  the final years of his reign and  eventually compelled him to  relinquish the crown.  The last section deals with the  Regency Period and the rambunctious life and times of  George IV. 'Royal Geordie', as  he was sometimes known, was  somewhat of a buffoon and  probably the most clothes  obsessed man who ever occupied the British throne. In  company with his erstwhile  friend, Beau Brummel, George  set the pace for the outrageous  fops arid dandies who peacocked through the fashionable  streets of the time. But the irresponsible and self indulgent  monarch was not without his  redeeming qualities. He was  basically a kind hearted man  and had a true appreciation of  the arts. George spent years  (and vast sums of money), constructing an elaborate oriental  palace at Brighton and filling it  with priceless art treasures. It  was considered a major wonder  of its day. Due to his father's  stubborn refusal to hand over  the throne until his illness left  him no choice, Royal Geordie  was to reign for only 10 years,  (although he spent eight years  prior to this as the Prince  Regent). He died in 1820, largely as a result of his dissipated  lifestyle, bringing an end to one  of the most eventful periods of  British history.  Sinclair-Stevenson has written an accessible, well researched book that concentrates on  the human side of the past.  Even non-history buffs will enjoy it.  help you to control and accomodate your mood swings.  There's no need to plan a party  for a time when you can predict  that you will be feeling  withdrawn.  Your strong emotional nature  is something that is a valuable  human resource in these times  and it's important that you  direct some of that innate  mothering power on yourself.  Directed outwards, toward the  world and your family, it can be  a real blessing for a limited  length of time. But it can also  become a controlling, obsessive;  kind of 'smother love' that people struggle against when it's  carried on in an unhealthy  fashion.  It's also a cop out for you. By  focusing on one or two people  to receive your mothering, you  maintain an outward role of  caring while hiding and protecting the sensitive emotional self  behind a carefully constructed  suit of armour that is riveted  together with 'shoulds'. That's  not the kind of mothering  anyone needs.  The challenge you face is to  remove that suit of armour, and  any other that you're tempted  to don, and allow yourself to  emotionally interact with the  world at large.  It's true that you are easily  hurt and are vulnerable to the  callous selfishness of the general  population. But in an era when  the majority of human beings  are indulging their own egos  outrageously and at each  other's expense, the world genuinely needs your ability to  care and be sensitive to others.  This does not mean that you  can put yourself on a self-  destruct mode and open your  heart to abuse. It means that in  learning to nurture and protect  yourself, by being aware of  your own need to withdraw and  recuperate, you are capable of  being a great source of emotional healing for the walking  wounded.

With a menu that features a wide selection of seafood  and European cuisine, one could hardly find a more satisfying spot to dine on our Coast.  Our decision to try the Casa Martinez was clearly the  easiest one of the evening. But, having no deadlines to  meet we sat back, cocktails in hand, and viewed the list of  appetizers at our leisure, Acting upon our lovely waitress's  suggestion we finally chose the seafood cocktail and stuffed mushrooms, both prepared with fresh crabmeat.  Heavenly! I heard my partner exclaim as he finished the  last morsel of this seafood cocktail. My mushroom caps  were just as tasty.  For an entree I chose the rack of lamb and he the Gam-  basa la Plancha (prawns Spanish style). With impeccable  timing they arrived exuding exotic aromas and piping hot,  basted with Dijon mustard and herbs. The lamb was  tenderly cooked to juicy perfection. It was as the menu  suggested, succulent. The prawns were just as sumptuous,  my partner assured me. A generous portion of rice and  fresh vegetables completed both meals.  I can never pass up a good dessert, especially in the form  of chocolate torte. Melt in your mouth layers of cake and  chocolate mousse. My friend decided on a coffee sweetened with liqueurs, topped with swirls of whipped cream.  Absolutely the perfect touches of decadence to finish a  splendid meal.  ���Our compliments to the staff of the Casa Martinez.

Olfert  885-4568  moves on revit  After months of preparation  and planning the Sechelt  Downtown Revitalization project took one of the final steps  towards becoming a reality at  last week's Sechelt Council  meeting.  Council passed a motion that  "the District of Sechelt publish  a Notice of Intention pursuant  to Section 656 of the Municipal  Act to establish a Local Improvement Area to undertake  works in the Downtown  Revitalization Area."  Once the notice of motion is  published the Revitalization  Committee will spend 30 days in  an intensive information campaign directed at property  owners in the affected area. At  the end of that time a referendum will be held.  Whether or not the revitalization goes ahead will depend on  the property owners themselves.  If the owners of 50 per cent of  the total land value in the  designated area are opposed,  the project will not proceed.  At   the   same   meeting   of  Sechelt Council, changes were  discussed which would encourage other areas of the  municipal district to look at improvements. Presently By-law  223 states that "100 per cent of  all the costs of local improvements be charged to the  parcels of land benefitting from  or abutting the work."  The suggestion was made that  Sechelt cover 10 per cent of the  total cost of improvements  which would be recovered  through lowered maintenance  costs, for example: a paved  street no longer requires grading  thereby saving the municipality  money.  Council asked Anne Presley,  assistant to the mayor, to draft  a new by-law which would permit the minicipal district to  cover 10 per cent of the costs of  local improvements.  UIC cheque pick-up  Employment and Immigration Canada is instituting  emergency measures to distribute unemployment insurance  cheques during the current  disruption of postal service.  Effective Monday, June 22,  unemployment insurance claimants will be able to pick up their  cheques and deposit their biweekly report cards at the  Canada Employment Centre at  which their claim is registered  with certain exceptions. Claimants are advised to watch their  local newspapers for specific  details.  In order to pick up cheques,  claimants must present their  social insurance card and one  other item of personal identification containing their  signature.  People picking up cheques  for claimants on sickness or  maternity benefits must have a  letter of authorization signed  and dated by the claimant and  including the claimant's social  insurance number. The person  picking up the cheque must also  have personal identification.  Claimants should not mail  their bi-weekly report cards, instead, they should be delivered  to their local Canada Employment Centre.  The offices will be open from  8:30 am to 4:30 pm, Monday to  Friday for the distribution of  cheques and the receipt of  report cards.  Gardening notes  by Marguerite  Start thinning out vegetable  seedlings to prevent overcrowding.  Spray apples, pears and  gooseberries against mildew and  scab, which is a fungus disease.  Both are easy to control with  the same fungicide, provided  you act now.  The arch-villians of the insect  underworld are greenfly and the  coddling moth, so mix a fungicide and insecticide and spray  on together. Follow directions  carefully.  June is the best month for  rooting cuttings of trees and  shrubs. Make a coldframe, put  it in a shady corner of the  garden, fill it with about three  inches of peat and perlite, which  is a porous rock. If you take  three or four cuttings of each  variety needed, you'll have  enough to exchange with  another gardener.  Look for healthy four inch  shoots that have grown this  year. Cut them off just above a  leaf joint, pop them into a  plastic bag, keep them out of  the sun to prevent wilting. At  home, trim just below a leaf  joint and cut off close to the  stem, all but the top pair of  leaves.  Dip in hormone rooting  powder and push into the compost up to the remaining pair of  leaves. Water them well and  cover with heavy plastic.  On dull days no shading is  necessary. In moderate sun,  cover the frame with an onion  net bag, two when it's hot. In  six to eight weeks the cuttings  can be potted.  Limanthes, or poached egg,  is the name of the pretty yellow  and white flower in Pioneer  Park which also looks nice in  hanging baskets.

The objective of the survey is "to identify, describe and evaluate existing and potential industrial  sites on the Sunshine Coast,"  Michael McPhee of Quadra  Planning Consultants told the  audience.

Later in the meeting, Don  Siemens from Century West  commented on the great benefit  the survey will be to the real  estate industry. He said that a  lot of conflict comes from fear  of the unknown and that knowing where industrial sites will be  located ensures that people can  buy a piece of residential property with the assurance that an  industrial site won't be  developed next door. Similarily,  an investor looking for a location for industrial development  can purchase a site knowing  that there won't be conflicts  which could delay development.  Once the final draft of the  survey is completed, the information will be put together in a  promotional package to be  shown to potential investors. By  punching in some relevant data  on a computer, the promoter  will be able to provide an instant inventory of appropriate  development sites and ii formation as to size, location,  highway and water access and  almost anything else a potential  buyer might need.  The survey will also be of use  to planning departments on the  Sunshine Coast, providing them  with instant feasibility information for zoning purposes.  Larry Wolfe, from the consulting firm, described the locations of good industrial land on  the Sunshine Coast, which includes 295 acres currently ur^  development and a further  acres with good developm~_t  potential. Altogether there are  175 parcels of land in 21 ?  dividual areas which were i  dentified as being marketable  Included in the study a  recommendations for rharke.-  ing the Sunshine Coast for in  dustrial development and Wolfe  suggested that the focus be on  industrial areas of compatible  use as opposed to industrial  sites.  Roger Hayter, an advisor to  the consulting firm, pointed out  the enormous potential that the  Sunshine Coast has in being "a  rural area that provides close  personal access to a major  metropolitan centre."

Pratt's partner, Billy Glassford, was out of town.  Coast News, June 22,1987  19.  by Ken Collins  Len Wray of Len Wray's  Transfer has sold his business  and retired after serving the  Sunshine Coast area for 20  years. As a member of Allied  Van Lines, Len Wray's Transfer has won three Sword of  Honour awards in the last 10  years and the Quality Control  Award for the second year in a  row, 1986 and 1987.  The Sword of Honour is a  district award given by a company's customers. Each customer is sent a questionnaire by  Allied and from the response it  is determined which company  gets the award. The award itself  is a valuable custom-made  presentation sword and scab  bard. The first two were  manufactured by Wilkinson  and the third by Toledo in  Spain.  The length this company will  go to satisfy a customer was illustrated recently when they  stored Tina, an elephant which  was performing in a Beachcomber script.  Len believes the company will  continue in the same manner as  when he was at the helm with  new owners Bill Glassford and  Harold Pratt. Both men have  been with the company for  many years, in fact, BUI was  previously a shareholder.  As for Len, he is looking forward to devoting his time to his  herd of Hereford cattle.  s  requires  isach  Srsgrtm  M  /  Secfcsit In Fail 1337.  presifcum piseemsnt and wmHdslRg.,,  "   ��nd he famllliT wllh cur��m ^iwn fafjctss  '  .     prictim, Advanced defirw ifid UMtcWag  ��  t  "/>  J  ~  '���i^^l  Awsotatotant: Ttirjporary; Jufy/87 to Mey/88 (SiAJw* to  ���?=.

Lygie Lund-  man, daughter of the owners,  strongly stated her objections to  the handling of the restaurant's  application for rezoning to permit a neighbourhood pub.  Mrs. Lundman told council  members that she had spoken to  Mayor Bud Koch and Planner  Rob Buchan two weeks ago  about the application and had  made it clear that she wished to  be present when council discussed it. She said she had been  repeatedly reassured that it  would be handled at the June 17  meeting when she could attend.  Instead, she read in the paper  that council had discussed the  application on June 10, without  bothering to notify her.  Mayor Koch defended himself, saying that the agenda for  the June 10 meeting had been  posted on the preceeding Monday as usual, and that council  cannot be restricted by anyone  in what they discuss at council  meetings. _:  In addressing the issue of the \  application,   Mrs7  Lundman !

The  rezoning application had  already gone to one public hearing, she said, when the area was  still under the jurisdiction of the  Sunshine Coast Regional  District.  Lundman questioned council  about the demand for a second  public hearing and asked,  "Why can't Davis Bay residents  enjoy a walk to a neighbourhood pub and have a drink  or a snack?"  Planner Rob Buchan explained that under the Municipal  Act, if substantive changes are  made to a rezoning application  after a public hearing, then  another public hearing must be  held or the rezoning could be  legally challenged at a later  date. He advised Sechelt Council to proceed with a public  hearing for both their protection and that of the property  owners.  Jose Martinez, son of the applicants, agreed to meet with  Buchan the next day and draw  up all legal covenants to be attached to the zoning application  so that a public hearing may be  held as soon as possible.  Mrs. Lundman closed her  presentation by assuring council  that the neighbourhood pub  that her parents are planning  will not be a "sleaze joint" and  that the provincial government  thoroughly polices licenced  premises to ensure that they  don't expand illegally.  Beer Gardens decision  Aldermen at last week's  meeting of Gibsons Council  agreed to grant two of the three  permits for beer gardens applied  for by the Sea Cavalcade Committee. The committee had applied for separate beer gardens  at different locations on July  31, August 1 and August 2.  However, council is only  allowed to give six permits per  year and four of them have  already been granted. Additionally, the beer garden plann  ed for July 31 was scheduled for  8 pm to 2 am and was located at  Gramma's Pub parking lot.  The regulations governing,  beer gardens state that they  must end by 10 pm, and they  must not be close to gambling  facilities. A casino is being planned to operate nearby so council  unanimously agreed to approve  only the beer gardens on August  1 at Dougal Park and August 2  at Armours Beach.  Appreciation Tea  Continued from page 11  nedy displayed the blood  pressure and pulse rate monitor.  A special advantage of this one  is that it can be left on a patient  and the blood pressure taken  without having to wake up the  patient. It also has a display of  the recordings in easy to read lit  letters.  Head Nurse Maxine Holmes  showed an interesting contraption that turned out to be a cast  cutter with a vacuum so all that  dust that arises from the sawing  is sucked away.  The kitchen staff, under  direction of dietician, Michelle,  laid out a fabulous tea with the  auxiliary   branch   presidents  pouring tea and coffee.  Administrator Ted Wright,  and president of the auxiliary,  Grace Rutherford presented 10  year scrolls and 20 and 25 year  pins for members of the six auxiliaries. Credit to the number of  volunteers and members who  have kept on for many years to  support the hospital and special  needs of its patients.  Guy Lewall spoke on behalf  of the board expressing the appreciation of the contribution  made by the ladies and  gentlemen of the St. Mary's  Hospital Auxiliary.  man ^  GOOD NEWS!

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CALL  Randy Thomson  Office 736-3831  Res.  United Realty Ltd.  by Ruth Forrester, 885-2418  Some local residents couldn't!  believe their eyes last weekend ;  when they pulled in to moor at j  Secret Cove. There, in a boat i  right beside them was the well i  known smiling face of Rick'.  Hansen.  Rick spent the weekend at the !  Jolly Roger and took a charter ;  fishing trip where he was very!  pleased to catch a 15 pound spr-;  ing salmon. He did enjoy his;  stay and we can be sure he will;  be back this way again. ;  I understand that the Jolly is ���  under new management and is>  now open every day all day to I  the public. Good news for all we!  locals who used to enjoy an;  evening there. '..  COUNTRY FAIR  I seem to have messed up a;  bit on my article last week on;  the Country Fair. First of all T  spelled Raphael wrongly,;  apologies to Hazel, and gave the  wrong phone number for Dolly;  Brand who is in charge of the^  favourite teddy bear contest.  Dolly's number is 885-9030.  Don't forget to get cracking  on reserving your booth space,  at the fair on July 10 and 11.  Call Andrew Steele at 885-3973.  It's great that once again the  fair will be at Cooper's Green  which is such a perfect location  for this event. The Green was a  busy place last weekend when  the Baptist Church held their  annual picnic.  Those of use who live close to  the Green are finding it hard to  understand why there are still  some folks who resent the fact  that it is no longer a campground. If they only knew how  many years the people struggled  to obtain this area for public use  they might understand how very  much it is appreciated by we  who do not have waterfront  property. We are now able to go  through the park and enjoy the  free use of the launching ramp.  The hall is being used regularly  for various groups, mainly  childrens' organizations. The  kids can now go there and swim  and enjoy the beach.  Sure, there are people with  friends who used to camp on  the Green and are now unable  to do so. The solution to that  might be to let friends camp by  your place and use the park the  same as the rest of us. Quite  frankly, I hope we never see  campers there again.  BAD LUCK  Maxine at the B & J Store  had a bit of bad luck recently  while in the process of doing a  good deed. She was feeding the  geese on the beach when she  slipped and broke an ankle  rather badly. The result is that  she will be in a cast for a few  weeks.  Take it easy Max and get it  better soon!  SILENT AUCTION  The Halfmoon Bay school  parents are planning a silent  auction booth at the Country  Fair and are calling on you for  help. If you can donate any  kind of service, be it knitting,  wood cutting, hairdressing,  lawn care, tree topping, but to  name a few, the group would be  most happy to hear from you.  Please give Charlene Orr a  call at 885-3535 or Tim Ardiel at  885-2109.  SCOTTISH VISITORS  Ronnie Dunn of Redrooffs  hosted two delightful guests  from Scotland last week. One  was a cousin of Ronnie's, Jean  Steel and her friend Laura  Brown.  Both ladies have recently  retired from having spent their  lives in the nursing field where  Jean was a nursing sister who  had nursed prince Charles during an illness when he was 17.  Laura was matron of a large  Glasgow hospital for many  years and was awarded the  Order of the British Empire for  her nursing services. The two  ladies thoroughly enjoyed their  stay in Halfmoon Bay and we  hope that they will come back  again.  We loved meeting them.

Bill 19  Continued from page 2  is not the only option open to  British Columbians. Since  small businesses like mine depend on consumers having  some disposable income I  wish the Socred braintrust  would look toward the Scan-  danavian countries, or West  Germany, or the Netherlands, for God's sake, where  competitive modern  economies have been created  without throwing the work  force to the wolves. Let us  learn from them, not from  Taiwan.  Attracting customers by  being the cheapest joint on  the block has been the one  and only economic thought  in the Social Credit brain  since W.A.C. Bennett tried  to give the Rocky Mountains  to Axel Wenner-Gren. But  both he and his son were  fairly frank about it. What  VanderZalm seems to have  added is deception. His  strategy is evidently to sell  the labour of British Columbians on par with that of the  poor whites of the Deep  South, but while he man-  euvres to bring this about, he  and his tame puppies in the  back benches want us to  think they are only working  for peace.  What we should demand  of him and of Mr. Long is  simple honesty. Then we  could choose intelligently  whether or not their program  is what we want.

Wall Still  disputed  in Gibsons  Alderman Bob Maxwell asked Gibsons Council members at  last week's meeting to consider  sending a letter of apology to  Bill Edney, owner of Ken's  Lucky Dollar, for any em-  barassment caused by discussions at a previous planning  committee meeting, of the  possible unsafe conditions of  the back wall of the store's  parking lot.  However, council members  pointed out that the most recent  letter they had sent Edney requested that he hire an engineer  to evaluate the safety of the  wall.  Maxwell stated that the  owner had reinforced the wall.  Beyond that, he told council, it  was Edney's opinion, and he  concurred, that no engineer  could make an accurate assessment without a copy of the construction plans.  Works superintendant, Bob  Marchand disagreed and council decided to leave it to Edney  to provide an engineer's report.

Coast News, June 22,1987  In Davis Bay  Although the area of Davis  Bay was incorporated into the  Municipal District of Sechelt  last year, the Sunshine Coast  Regional District (SCRD) still  owns the foreshore lease in  Davis Bay and in a letter to  Sechelt Council last week SCRD  Chairman Jim Gurney let them  know once more that the  regional district has no intention  of transferring the lease.  The letter, which was brought  to council meeting, stated that  "...as a major beach area on the  Sunshine Coast, and in fact,  serving residents of the whole  area, the Davis Bay beach  should be maintained and paid  for by the region as a whole.'"  Gurney suggested that the  Regional District would  welcome the co-operation of the  Municipal District if they  choose to become part of the  park function of the SCRD.  Mayor Bud Koch told council  that such a move would mean  that Sechelt taxpayers would be  contributing to all parks in the  SCRD jurisdiction, something  he was not prepared to see happen.  Referring to the transfer of  the foreshore lease, he informed  the meeting that he had been in  contact with the Ombudsman  and the Ministry of Forests and  Lands and that, "they will take  a look at it and see what is  holding it up."  At a meeting the next day of  the SCRD Parks Committee,  another aspect of the Davis Bay  foreshore was dealt with.  A letter was received from Ed  Traff, who wants the SCRD's  permission to set up a concession at Davis Bay next to their  porta-potties.   Although   the  land in question belongs to the  Department of Highways, the  SCRD holds tenure on it.  When the issue was dealt with  the committee agreed to write  Mr. Traff, explaining that they  do not own the land and suggesting that he contact the  Department of Highways.  However, when Jim Gurney arrived later at the meeting, the  question was reopened and  Gurney suggested that the  SCRD intercede on behalf of  Mr. Traff.  Area A Director Gordon  Wilson asked if local residents  were in favour of a concession  at that location, but Gurney insisted that the issue was, "If  we're going to develop a  regional waterfront park, we  had better ensure our tenure."  The recommendation to intercede on Traff's behalf was  passed. Gurney also recommended that the SCRD write  the Ministry of Transportation  and Highways requesting first  refusal rights if the ministry  decides to sell that parcel of  land.  \Kitler Whale  Watching package  | for details Call  {���"Gibsons Travel  f Sunnycrest Mall      886-92551  West Howe Sound  waste plan  The Sunshine Coast Regional  District (SCRD) planning  department along with technical  advisors from the Ministry of  Environment were on hand last  Wednesday evening to explain  the West Howe Sound Waste  Management Plan at a public  meeting held at Langdale  Elementary School.  In developing the plan, four  options were considered. They  were: a single community  sewage system with effluent going to the ocean; a single community sewage system with effluent disposed of on land; a  satellite concept of several small  systems; septic tanks combined  with small neighbourhood  systems.  The recommended alternative  is to continue the use of the Gibsons sytem for the Town of  Gibsons only and continuing  use of septic tanks in Areas E  and F, with small neighbourhood systems being considered  in some cases.  Under existing zoning, the.  number of lots less than one:  half acre in size could increase.  197 per cent in Areas E and F.  For these reasons it recommends down zoning of future  nMnimum lot sizes to one half  acre.  Cost is also a major factor. A;  septic tank with drainfield costs,  an average of $2000 per new.  home with operating costs of.  $75 per year. A satellite system,  cost would vary between $872.  and $7360 per household. Expansion of the Gibsons system  to service the entire area would  cost $4034 per household in  Areas E and F and $862 per  household in Gibsons.  The SCRD West Howe  Sound Community Plan was  also on display.  play  No free  in  Gibsons  A letter from Surrey Parks  and Recreation Commission  received little enthusiasm from  Gibsons Council last week. The  letter contained a copy of a  resolution passed by the B.C.  Recreation and Parks Association (BCRPA) which would ensure that "no individual shall be  refused registration and/or participation in any recreation activity due to the inability to pay  the necessary fee or charge."  The rationale which accompanied a copy of the resolution  explained that the association  was concerned about people living on limited incomes being  unable to use local facilities.  Co-ordinator of Recreation  for People With Special Needs,  Jule Hopkins, urged BCRPA  members to adopt a similar  policy.  However, Alderman Gerry  Dixon, who sits on the Gibsons  Aquatic Commission, reacted  negatively. "It is obvious that  whoever wrote this is looking  for a job," he said. "It makes  no sense."  Bob Maxwell agreed, pointing out that "inability to pay  could mean you left your wallet  at home."  Council voted to file the letter  and take no action.
