 Legislative Library  Parliament Buildings  Victoria, BC V8V 1X4  87.6  by Fran Burnside  The creation and enactment of a playet showing Cro-Magnon man's discovery of 'Spokeshave', a stone  on which he could sharpen his spears, helped win these Roberts Creek Elementary students second place  at the 'Olympics of the Mind' competition held recently in North Vancouver. See story for details.  With today's emphasis on  physical fitness and the avid attention we pay to our athletic  heroes, it is an interesting twist  to contemplate young people involved in a competition known  as 'The Olympics of the Mind'  (OM).  Seven Grade 5 students from  Roberts Creek Elementary,  coached by Mrs. Linda Kyle,  recendy took part in such a  competition in North Vancouver, and their efforts won  them second place and a chance  to compete in the provincial  championships in Delta on  April 11.  The OM Program was  developed in the US in 1978 to  stimulate and develop students'  creative problem solving  abilities by providing interesting  and challenging problems. Students test their solutions against  those of students from other  schools.  In choosing to create a 'cave  play' for part of the competition, local students Tige  Pollock, Christy Stoochnoff,  Dallas Finnigan, Ben Tveter,  Miriam Kirk, Anna Kyle and  Adam Gibson had to incorporate a number of criteria.  They had to represent a fire,  make and use a musical instrument, incorporate a bone tool  or implement, draw a cave  painting of an animal during the  play, make an animal that  moves, and the theme of their  play had to revolve around an  invention or special happening  that helped the cave people.  The students ultimately made  up a story about Cro-Magnon  man's discovery of the 'spokeshave', a piece of rock shaped  like a disc with a bite out of it  against which cave men could  rub  their  spears  to  sharpen  them.  The students were not allowed to get any outside help whatsoever in writing their play or  creating the components they  needed for it, and they were  subsequently marked heavily on  both their creativity and style.  They were allowed to spend a  maximum of $50 US on  materials, and the locals gained  extra points for spending only  $20 US.  In addition to their play, the  group also had to compete in  spontaneous problem solving of  problems given to them on the  day of the competition.  A win at the provincial  'Olympics of the Mind' competitions in April would see  these local thinkers travel to  Mount Pleasant, Michigan, for  the World Championships.  10:30 am ferry!  Sunshine Coast residents may have won their battle for a  10:30 am ferry sailing. Last Saturday, Sunshine Coast  Regional District Transportation Committee Chairman, John  Shaske received a phone call from the B.C. Ferry Corporation representative Jim Price, who told him that the sailing  would be reinstated on May 15 and would not be automatically cancelled next fall.  Instead, Shaske told the Coast News, the Ferry Corporation will review the ridership in the fall and make their decision at that time as to whether the additional sailing is warranted.  The Sunshine  Published on the Sunshine Coast      25* per copy on news stands   March 16,1987       Volume 41        Issue 11  Given communty support  Purdy confident of  theatre project success  by John Burnside  On the last day of school before spring break, Cedar Grove students released balloons in honour of Rick  Hansen, to whose Man in Motion campaign they donated $120. ���Fran Burnside photo  Up almost $3 million  Schools budget soars  by Ken Collins  Late Thursday afternoon, the  Sunshine Coast School District  46 finally adopted a budget to  be submitted to the provincial  government.  The total budget comes to  $13,548,951, which is  $2,947,584 over last year. The  district fiscal framework laid  down by the province is only  $10,154,656, which means  $3,394,295 will to be obtained  from other sources and additional' taxation.  Explaining their position the  Board issued the following press  release:  "The Board of School  Trustees for School District 46  operates under the jurisdiction  of the Ministry of Education in  establishing the cost of operating and maintaining a school  school district.  "It is ;a commonly held view  that the education system has  been bac\ly underfunded and  limited by restraint. The Board  has the authority to make any  addition it deems to be  necessary to improve the system  by taxation.  "In developing the current  budget document, the Board  has   considered   first   and  foremost the needs of children  served by this educational  system. It has also met its legal  obligations.  "The Board believes that  although the local cost of the  budget is much greater than last  year's, it is one which is  necessary to adequately meet  the identified needs of this  district's public schools.  "We look forward to community support for this budget  in our attempt to provide quality education."  President of the Sunshine  Coast Teachers* Association,  Bill Forst, voiced concern at last  week's meeting of the school  board, that teachers were being  left out in the dark during planning of the budget. The budget  was not ready as promised and  was released the following evening after the Davis Bay public  meeting on French Immersion.  Teachers were also concerned  with class sizes in the French  Immersion program. Currently  all of the 30 Grade 1 students  plan to continue with Grade 2  and there are 37 new enrollments for Grade 1. It was indicated Grade 1 would be split  but Grade 2 would be a single  class with one teacher and an  aid.  The board explained they  were under much pressure to  complete the budget by March  15, but that they had made  themselves quite available to input from concerned groups and  were confident they were aware  of everyone's concerns.  Park addition  "This is going to be the Sunshine Coast's version of  Stanley Park," Jim Gurney told reporters at the Regional  Board meeting last Thusday. His comment was in reference  to the aquisition of five more acres of land at the base of  Soames Hill which will provide access from the highway to  the park that is already there.  The parcel had been assessed at $50,700 but the Regional  District was able to purchase it for $38,500 bringing the total  area for the park to approximately 100 acres.  Describing the project asc 'the  most exciting project I've been  involved with in a long and not  uneventful life," President Rai  Purdy of the newly-renamed  Gibsons Landing Theatre Project told a public meeting held  at the Sunshine Coast Arts Centre in Sechelt last week that,  given local support, he is entirely confident of the success of  the project.  Purdy explained the recent  decision of the Eileen Glassford  Arts Foundation to change the  name of the society and the  theatre.  "A couple of people pointed  out that there were already two  'Firehall Theatres' in the Lower  Mainland and several more asked about the wisdom of having  two names, that of the society  and that of the theatre it seeks  to build. We are entering the  crucial fund-raising portion of  the project and we decided on  the name Gibsons Landing  Theatre Project as being the  best single working title at this  point. It simply identifies the  type and location of the  project."  Purdy said that upon completion of the building of the  theatre it was possible that the  completed theatre could be  named after the holding of a  public competition.  At the public meeting held  last Tuesday night, Purdy sketched his own extensive background on radio, in the theatre,  and as a television producer in  Toronto, New York and in  Europe.  Dealing head on with questions recently raised about the  viability of the project, Purdy  pointed out that he had been involved in the start-up of two  television stations from bare  land, Scottish Television in  Glasgow and CFTO in Toronto.  "When we started Scottish  Television for Lord Roy Thomson there was no one in Scotland who would put money in  the venture because existing  television stations in London  were losing money. In the first  year we made $1,000,000 clear  profit. The point is there are  many ways to do anything. The  way to build and run a small  theatre is with great economy,  and that we shall do."  Purdy pointed out that the  project had hired noted architect Paul Merrick, a native  son and summer resident of the  Sunshine Coast.  "Paul has been involved in  many such projects," said Purdy, "including one most recently in Prince Rupert. I have no  reason to doubt his estimates  which are that we can build for  a cost of $4,500 per seat of  capacity, well within our project  estimate of $1,500,000."  Purdy noted the differences  between a rural-set theatre with  an urban-based facility. "An  urban-type theatre would not  even look right in our setting,"  according to the Gibsons Landing Theatre Project president.  He pointed out several crucial  differences with the oft-  mentioned Richmond Gatehouse Theatre.  Another contention that Purdy laid to rest was the view that  a theatre for the Coast could be  realized by purchasing the  Twilight Theatre.  "What kind of public relations would that generate, closing the only movie house on the  Coast?" asked Purdy. "AndJ  besides the location is wrong;  There is no better location  possible for the tourist facility  we intent to build than that so  generously made available by  the Town of Gibsons."  Purdy noted that the time  had come for a membership  drive on behalf of the project  and said that Eve Smart and  Cindy Buis were begirining such  a drive at the present time.  "We need numbers to  generate senior government  support and a strong membership list is crucial. We'll be having a weekly information column in the Coast News during  this crucial period as we try to  sign up our supporters. We also  have need of organizing help for  various community fund  raisers. Now is the time to come  forward."  President Rai Purdy of the Gibsons Landing Theatre Project is pictured with the model of the proposed theatre at a public meeting  held in the Arts Centre last week. The renamed project enters a  crucial fundraising phase this month with a membership drive and  art auction planned in the Mariner's Restaurant (across from  Dockside Pharmacy and near Molly's Reach) under the auspices of  the prestigious Vancouver campany of Maynard's Auctioneers.  More than 60 pieces of art by local Coast artists have been donated  for the cause.

As he made his way down the west coast and over to  Florida an occasional report hit the paper�� His travels  through Great Britain and Europe went virtually unnoticed although the media coverage picked up slightly as he  ventured into the USSR, Poland and Czechoslovakia that  September.  The tour then resumed in Europe, again losing news  reporters' interest as he travelled through the warmer  climates that winter, down through Greece then Jordan  and Israel and on to New Zealand and Australia.  It was there, in Australia, a year after he began his tour,  that the Canadian media seemed to notice that he was still  going strong. The reception he received in China was so  overwhelming that even the most jaded Canadian had to  feel a certain "pride by association".  Rick Hansen started to take on the Canadian image that  we seem to have lost over the last decades: the rugged,  tough determined northerner, capable of surmounting incredible obstacles through pure determination.  After wheeling up the eastern seaboard last summer, his  arrival in Canada at the end of August received much  more publicity and enthusiasm than Canadians had shown  at the time of his departure. Then we discovered that this  man who knew what Canadian winters are like, having  grown up in the north, was determined to travel across the  prairies during the winter.  A reporter asked Rick why he just didn't rest through  the winter and restart the world tour in the spring.  "Our project stands for overcoming adversity and  obstacles," he said. "To run away from winter before we  have even encountered it would be totally against what  we've been working and striving for. We believe that  winter is another obstacle we will have to overcome."  With the help of modern technology and positive thinking Rick Hansen has done exactly that. This may have  been a warm winter on the Sunshine Coast, but on the  prairies they still hit sub-zero temperatures, fierce winds  and snow.  Rick now heads into the home stretch and will be arriving in Vancouver this spring, having instilled a sense of  real pride in Canadians for the kind of person that comes  from our country.  Last summer Mayor Collin Palmer issued a challenge to  coastal communities to see who could raise the most funds  per capita for the Man in Motion Tour. To date, Gibsons  has raised almost $700 and Sechelt an estimated $2200.  Much of that has been the result of individual initiatives by  groups like Supershape in Sechelt whose employees spent  an entire Sunday cutting hair to raise money for the effort.  It is hoped that after resting from his World Tour, Rick  Hansen can be persuaded to travel the Circle Tour of the  Sunshine Coast and Vancouver Island. However the  challenge from Powell River will end this spring once Rick  arrives in Vancouver.  People who want to organize fund-raisers and get on the  bandwagon should contact Maureen Clayton at 885-2629  in Sechelt, or Lillian Kunstler at 886-9058 in Gibsons. It  will be interesting to see how the Sunshine Coast's  response to this challenge measures up to Rick Hansen's  response to his.

Describing the budgetary restriction announced by  premier Bill Bennett as "poorly organized, poorly  thought out, inequitable and harmful to the basic  educational program offered in the classrooms of the  school district", local school trustees voted unanimously to refuse to submit a budget by March 31.  The regional board goes on record as finding allegations made by Director Charles Lee regarding the  regional board staff and salaries as being "just not  right".  Mayor Bud Koch announces that abuse of the Sunshine Coast Regional District by his aldermen will no  longer be tolerated.  Chairman of the first Economic Development Commission, Al Wagner, recommends that the regional  district hire Oddvin Vedo as Economic Development  Commissioner. Vedo comes from a similar position in  the Bulkley Valley.  20 YEARS AGO  Estimates of a Sechelt Boat harbour amounting to  $220,000 are included in estimates to the federal  budget.  40 YEARS AGO  Bank of Montreal offers loans at rates of 31/2 and 4V2  per cent to facilitate cash purchases of consumer  goods.

It shows the logging procedure  of that date as carried out by the Jackson Brothers logging show, at  Grafton Bay on the northwest shore of Bowen Island, behind Hutt  Island. This log section is actually about halfway down from the  booming ground and camp at Grafton Bay. The log is being skidded out by a tractor which was actually quite modern for that  period. The Jacksons had a large gasoline powered four cylinder  Caterpillar called a 60 Cat which was very effective in hauling out  the logs. One end of the log section was pulled over a heavy steel  ���photo courtesy Hugh Inglis  pan about four feet square which kept the log from digging into the  ground. The pan and the log were then hauled out by the Cat. The  Cat was operated by Lawrence Stonewall Jackson II, L.S.  Jackson's younger brother. Mrs. Jackson senior believed her first  L.S.J, son was lost when he took up a sailor's life so when she had  another son she gave him the same name. Shown are Walter Green  of a resident Bowen Island family, a rigging-slinger; Hugh Inglis,  chokerman; and Ken Hilyard who is believed to have been running  the Jackson Yarding donkey at the logging site. At that time it was  sometimes necessary to row to work from Gibsons.  Maryanne's Viewpoint  Women worry the military  by Maryanne West  We've all heard about the  submarine base at Nanoose Bay  on Vancouver Island and that  US nuclear powered and  presumably armed submarines  ply Georgia Strait on a regular  basis, but we never see these  denizens of the deep on our side  of the strait and it's easy to  forget them.  Those living on the island and  concerned about peace and the  survival of humanity keep a  continuous vigil outside the  Comox Naval Base. It demands  a high degree of dedication and  concern because the base is hid- ,  den in the trees and those v  gathering outside the gates are  virtually a voice in the void.  However, there is a communication centre with radio  towers, satellite dishes and  weather station atop the rocky  summit of Winchelsea Island,  otherwise uninhabited, and last  summer perhaps feeling the  need to make a more visible  symbolic gesture, eight women  calling themselves the  Motherpeace Action Group  planned and executed a picnic  on the little island. They were of  course seen, (the Navy is  understandbly   very   security  conscious) and apprehended.  The trial was re-scheduled  from October to January and  last week I received a report  from Jane Hastings which I  thought you would enjoy too.  The trial was held in  Parksville during this winter:  cold spell with the daytime high  temperature hovering around  zero to two degrees. Supporters  came from all up and down the  island and as there wasn't room  in the tiny courtroom they  gathered outside for a peace  vigil while they waited for the  routine cases of traffic infractions to be dealt with.  "Everybody had candles",  Jane writes, "and we were standing out there freezing, dripping  wax all over out mittens. Someone sang a hymn and the  bailiff came out and said: "If  we don't have quiet out there,  you'll all be in here too." Obviously we upset him.  "The Commanding Officer  of the base was not a happy  man. He was a medium-sized,  wiry, very brusque individual.  He came in uniform, looking  very official. He was obviously  irritated by having to push his  way through the throng of people standing holding candles  and singing peace songs. When  inside, he paced up and down  the hall, slapping his gloves.  "The courtroom was  miniscule. In it were the prosecutor, the defence lawyer, the  eight defendants and the judge.  Spectators were let in one or  two at a time. It was from one  of these that I heard what went  on in there.  "The arresting officer from  the marine police began telling  hi story. He kept referring to  two-man boats, saying a two-  man boat came ashore and two  women got out. Then two more  two-man boats came ashore and  two women got out of each.  "Finally the judge couldn't  stiffle his giggling any longer:  "Actually" he said, "I think  you are in breach of the  Charter. You should be referring to these as two-person  boats."  "Anyway it was agreed that  four two-man boats landed and  eight women got out. They were  arned they would be arrested,  but they persisted in coming  ashore. They took a picnic cloth  and broke bread and sang some  hymns and the officer kept telling them not to do it, but they  kept on. He said he tried to stop  them from singing but they  wouldn't stop, so finally he arrested them. At that point a  recess was called.  "When Jane came back from  iunch, people were milling  around in various degress of  jubilation.  "The judge had asked the  defence attorney to make a motion for dismissal. The women  had not been above the high tide  line, so there had been a false  arrest and the case was dismissed."  Jane goes on to describe an  incident when she lived across  from Nanoose Harbour and  watched the black submarines  going by her dining room window.  "It would come down, stay  for a while and then go back. I  went out to look at one once. I  had a rubber boat with a little  motor on the back. I jumped in  my boat and went out to have a  closer look at this thing, and  guys started up out of the hatch  with guns! Here was a little old  lady in a rubby boat, which you  could have done in with a pin,  but they came up brandishing  guns and motioning me away.  So I had a rude gesture and  went off."  I guess we've forgotten too  that the strait is used as a testing  range. It must be about 20 years  since the Navy lobbed shells into Roberts Creek by mistake!  Coast Lines  Snail farming for Coast?  by Nancy MacLarty  I don't know about you, but  I find all the uproar about  aquaculture here on the Sunshine Coast very upsetting. On  the one hand, people in the industry say it's a sure fire  method of improving our  economy.  Besides jobs on the fish farms  themselves, they say that offshoot businesses and industries  will spring up, all thanks to  aquaculture. Off-shoots such as  fish processing, feed mills, construction, tracking and other  related businesses.  On the other hand, groups  are being formed to push for the  strict regulation of fish farming.  They are fearful of pollution,  degradation of the wild salmon  stock, loss of tourist dollars and  the "selling off" of our  foreshore to-foreign interests.  Some waterfront residents  live in fear of waking up some  morning to find their serenity  and view spoiled by pens of fish  and noisy equipment.  Whichever way you feel, pro  aquaculture or con, I think I  have a solution which will appeal to everyone. It's quiet,  won't pollute, takes very little  capital and could provide jobs  or extra cash for most everyone  on the Coast...and will even  save money for all us gardeners.  What is it? The culture and  domestication of shelless mol-  lusks, or, to put it in layman's  terms, "slug farming".  Don't laugh until you've read  further. In California, snails  were a big problem for anyone  who tried to grow citrus...but  snails, or escargots, were a  delicacy. So someone had the  bright idea of having homeowners collect the snails instead  of spending their hard earned  cash on snail pellets. The result?  A flourishing cottage industry.  People, instead of looking  upon snails as pests, were  gathering and delivering them  to local gourmet restaurants.  Some folks even started their  own snails pens in their  backyards. In California, snails  are a hot commodity.  So, why couldn't that happen  here? Lord knows, we have  enough slugs to go around...  and they're record size. We even  have different breeds. Large,  black, horned slugs, camouflage slugs, and the straight old  garden variety slug, or  "Limace" as they're called in  French.  You see, that's one of the big  drawbacks to slugs...their  name. But Limace, or shelless  mollusks, sounds much better,  if not more appetizing. I think  the first thing the Limace industry would have to do (with  government money, of course)  is to hire a public relations firm  to promote the product. Once  the market is there...we're  golden!  According to Dave Raworth,  an entomologist with Agriculture Canada, "slugaculture" is  a very simple proposition. Just  give them a dark, warm, damp  area and they're in slug heaven.  He even offered to send me a  photo of two slugs mating, but I  declined. After all, this is a  family paper.  Male or female, they lay  about 100 eggs at a time, are  nocturnal vegetarians and need  very little care. Just leave out  clean kitchen compost for them  each evening, water the ground  if it's dry and they'll fatten up in  no time.  However, our Limace are territorial and Mr. Raworth tells  me that they will "rasp" other  slugs who tread on their turf...  even kill each other. So that  means keeping separate areas  for different families to keep  aggression to a minimum.  But still, these areas don't  have to be too large, even for  thousands of the little critters.  Furthermore, gardeners, instead  of buying slug pellets, could  harvest wild Limace and deliver  them to the nearest slug farm at  so much per pound. It would be  a great way for senior citizens...  even Scouts and Brownies, to  make money for their organizations.  Shelless mollusks are made  up of proteins and water and  could be very nourishing and  even tasty if prepared in the  right manner. Perhaps we could  obtain the services of someone  like Madame Benoit to invent  gourmet recipes. How about  "Limace aux Lemon", "Limace Noir avec Hollandaise" or  "Limace Frites". What about  getting McDonald's to try  marketing "McMollusks"?  There's no end to the  possibilities.  The Sunshine Coast could  start to feed third world countries, and all because of the lowly slug. No doubt governiment  grants would be available, for  those wanting to start up  businesses and no special equipment or training would be  necessary. Our economy would  boom, our gardens would grow  and the uproar over aquaculture  would be a thing of the past.  So listen up Forests and  Lands. Before you grant all  those foreshore leases;, think  about slugs. They could boost  our economy with the roinimum  of upset to residents, foreshore  or ecosystem.  The fishermen would be happy, the tourists and boaters  could retain their sheltered harbours and the entrepreneurs,  along with the ordinary citizen,  would be hauling in the profits.  Then we could all s;it back and  enjoy this precious little piece of  God's country thai; we live in  and contemplate our good fortune and good neighbours.  All this while munching on  another handful of dry, salted  Limace...manufactured on the  Sunshine Coast of course.  1 >*���JSjj^Sf1?  7Z% m fmumr of  capital pimtBljment!

In January of this year 140  government final examinations  were written by Sunshine Coast  pupils. More pupils from  Pender and Chatelech will join  those from Elphinstone in tackling this task in June. At this  break we should reflect on the  January results. Failure rates  are always a concern; in this session, 96.4 per cent of results  were of passing or better standing. This success rate is appreciably above a 90 to 95 per  cent average for the province.  Sunshine Coast pupils achieved on the average within three  per cent of the provincial  averages. Many pupils achieved  well above that provincial  average; Sunshine Coast pupils  earned more A and B level  grades than their provincial  counterparts in four courses including English, Communications, and History 12. In addition, school and exam marks  were found to be acceptably  close by Ministry of Education  standards in approximately 90  per cent of the cases.  Spring Break is an appropriate time for us to  recognize those individual  achievements, wish our educational communitv a well deserved, refreshing break, and encourage the school community  to return on March 23 to further  excellence. ,  D.C.

Honourable Harold Long  4794B, Joyce Avenue  Powell River, V8A 3B6  Dear Sir:  I am writing to express my indignation at the continued increase in ferry fares combined  with a reduction in service over  the past few years.  My wife and I are only two of  hundreds of people who have  retired here after having earned  all of their present income in  other provinces. All that money  - literally millions of dollars annually - which comes from  elsewhere is being dumped into  the economy of this riding.  When we moved here it was  with the expectation that the  late ferry sailing would continue. It is now almost prohibitively expensive to take in an  evening concert or sports event  in Vancouver.  Had we known that this  reduction in ferry service would  occur I doubt that we would  have settled here. Surely, this  situation will make the Sunshine  Coast much less attractive to  retirees and be a strong negative  influence on local economies.  Another irritant is that taxpayers here pay their share of  infrastructures servicing other  B.C. residents but are expected  to shoulder a disproportionate  share of their own highway/  ferry link. Why should we be  expected to pay part of the Sky  Train deficit through provincial  revenues, for example, given the  treatment we get?  I accept that you, personally,  support improved service but  you are obviously running into  trouble 'upstairs'. As our  representative, you have to convince others in government that  good ferry service to this area is  worth its cost.

It's time for  elections and new people are  urgently required to fill the executive positions. ^  The association is the community's Town Council. It is a  forum for discussion of local  issues, provides a channel for  the residents of Roberts Creek  to express their wishes and concerns, and keeps the community  in touch with what's happening.  It is too important to lose,  especially when there are all  sorts of things going on around  us.  But the association must have  an executive to carry on and the  incumbents   have   done   their  stint. Somebody else must come  forward at the meeting this  Wednesday, March 18, at the  Community Hall starting at 8  pm. Please be there.  FAC__CTY MEETING  Roberts Creek is unique in  having a Facility Committee to  oversee the Joint Use Facility. It  is comprised of two school  board appointees and two  members of the community to  formulate policy within the  terms of the Joint Use agreement and to deal with any problems that arise in the administration of that agreement.

Coast News, March 16,1987  by George Cooper, 886-8520  "When I was searching the  Vancouver library for a play for  us to do here on the Sunshine  Coast," said Jay Pomfret, the  presiding genius of the recent  production, Bus Stop, "I knew  from having seen the film that  this would be a good one.  "Still I was reluctant to take  on the directing job, something  I had not done before. But Nest  Lewis encouraged me to do it,  and promised to help with the  production. So I did, and she  took on the task of stage  manager."  What the magical chemistry  was that brought about this  spirited production may not be  readily defined. Certainly, it  was a well-balanced cast, bubbling with enthusiasm.  "We auditioned about twen  ty people over three evenings,  said Jay. "And I would like to  add that we hope to find places  in other plays for those who  were not selected this time."  "The players were such a  conscientious group," said  Nest. "They worked hard and  they worked as a team from the  very start."  And that explains the cohe-  siveness of the production.  But there were other factors  like the appeal of the play to all  ages, and a cast that could project the characters so vividly.  It was no difficulty at all for  those of us in the audience to be  right there with the players in  the bus stop restaurant.  You brought the scene to life  superbly, you players and crew.  It is a pleasure as well to  acknowledge   the   competent  Once widely renown for cutthroat trout fishing, the Glb-  sons/Sechelt area is so depleted that the removal of ten fish could  fish out any given stream. Department of Fisheries Community  Advisor Grant McBain, above, assisted by volunteer Rick Schmidt,  last week took eggs from sea-run cutthroat at L&K Fish Hatchery.  The eggs will be fertilized, hatched, and the fish raised until large  enough to be released. It takes an average of 10 to 15 hours to catch  each fish from the wild. Each female will yield approximately 1000  eggs, of which only 100 will reach maturity. Sea-run cutthroat do  not spawn until four or five years old. The first couple of years are  spent in the fresh water stream. An extensive enhancement program is being developed and volunteers are being sought.  ���Ken Collins photo  At Gibsons Council  Protection of the seawaik  from Armour's Beach, planning  support for a newly formed  Heritage Society, and the possible difficulties caused by  overloaded logging trucks passing through the municipality  were among the items discussed  at the planning meeting of Gibsons Council last week.  Planner Rob Buchan informed council that funds were  available to conduct a feasibility  study into the construction of a  breakwater at Armour's Beach  to protect the seawaik which  was badly damaged in January  storms this year. He was  authorized to investigate the  possibility of obtaining funds to  conduct the feasibility study.  Council also authorized  Buchan to devote some planning time to assist the newly  formed Heritage Society which  seeks to identify historical sites  within the municipality.  Concern about overloaded  logging trucks damaging municipal roads led council to instruct that a letter be sent to the  Volunteer  If you can give two hours a  week to do volunteer work, you  could be helping an adult living  on the Sunshine Coast who  needs to learn basic reading and  writing skills.

In other planning matters, it  was decided that trees in the  Franklin Road area would be  trimmed professionally to a  height of 30 feet with property  owners being billed for the  work, and Mayor Strom asked  that she and Administrator Lorraine Goddard be appointed to  a committee to formulate a  recommendation on a subdivision on behalf of Riccan  Holdings proposed by agent  Jon McRae.  essive  work of those who were part of  the production behind the  scenes: Pat Tripp the producer,  who attended to all those chores  like publicity, programs, concession, and hall; Dianne Evans  who supervised the props;  "Aus" Marian and her  daughters, for lights and makeup; and to the CBC for the loan  of props.  The large number of people  who attended, or tried to attend, the play was of course the  clearest acknowledgment of a  good entertainment, and an enjoyable one.  "Our last night we had standing room only," said Nest  Lewis, "and we had to disap  point a number by turning them  away."

The main purpose of this  I meeting is to develop a family  '> support group in our area and  to let families with mentally  handicapped people know that  they are not alone.  In the past, many handicapped children were separated  from their mothers, fathers,  brothers and sisters because  they were being placed in institutions or other group  facilities. Today, more and  more parents are electing to  keep their handicapped child at  home where he or she will grow  and develop best surrounded  and guided by loving family  members. But keeping the handicapped child at home means  exceptional financial burdens,  increased stress and challenging  long-term care demands.  Obviously, information is of  prime importance to these people as they access needed, but  often bewildering, systems and  professional services. The Family Support Institute will act as a  resource to families by providing an up-to-date information network. Workshops will  also be offered on subjects such  as the development of wills and  estates, accessing the special  education system and vocational options for handicapped  adults.  The speakers at this first  meeting will be Vickie Cam-  mack of The Family Support  Institute and all families who  have a handicapped member are  urged to attend. As well as being helpful and informative,  you'll meet others who are coping with similar situations and  be making the first step in networking on the Sunshine Coast.

Having written recipes for certain other  nations I could not leave out one lot of Brits - or I'd sure be after having  a wake afore me toim! Apart from soda bread, the dreaded stew and  the ever present potato what do the Irish eat? I ran to my favourite  cookbook - my greatly revered Mrs. Beaton's Every Day Cookery. After  all, I reasoned with myself, who better than an English person to think  she knows the quirks of the Irish!  I thumbed through and there it was - Irish Moss Blancmange (Invalid  Cookery).  You had to clamber oyer the green hills and collect a tablespoon of  moss, then wash it several times, then pick it over - what for she didn't  say! I shuddered and realized why the Irish seem so hardy. No one  could face being an invalid with such a choice of food!  There was, however, better to come, and that was Irish Rarebit. A  delightful change for a light lunch or a midnight snack.

Apparently, Story had been  working in a writer's group,  rather like the Writers' Forge,  but she wasn't happy with her  progress. However, the group  went on a weekend retreat to a  resort   in   Saskatchewan   and  Hours;  there Storey came into contact  with the spirit of a long-dead Indian princess who now directs  her writing.  This successful collaboration  has led to a trilogy about  Alvena Schroeder, a German-  Canadian girl growing up on the  farm: It Never Pays to Laugh  Too Much, The Way to Always  Dance, and The Need of Wanting Always. The books have  been highly praised  Listeners to the CBC will be  familiar with Story's essays,  poems, stories, plays and commentaries. Story is one of  Saskatchewan's best-loved storytellers, and is in demand for  workshops both with children  and adults.

The enormous trees were felled by hand  with axes and cross-cut saws, a  labourious and back-breaking  task. Some of the trees were so  huge, it took two men working  almost non-stop, an entire day  to drop a single one. Their task  was complicated by the fact that  they were compelled to work  balanced on springboards, 10  feet or more above the ground  to avoid the butt swell. A good  faller had to be a combination  of workhorse and acrobat.  Once the trees were on the  ground, they had to be transported to the water in some  manner. In the pre-mechanized  woods, this was accomplished  by teams of oxen yoked together in teams of as many as 16  animals. These stolid, straining  beasts hauled the timber bodily  down pre-greased skidroads to  the sea. A crew of five men  worked in concert with the oxen. Three men known as the  knetter, the sniper and the rider,  prepared the logs for the skids,  undercutting the ends, removing any protrusions and  sometimes barking them to prevent hang ups. They were paid  $1 per day for their pains.  The bull-puncher was boss of  the crew and was paid accordingly, as much as $125 per  month. His job was to drive the  stubborn bulls up and down the  skidroads with frequent prods  of his goadstick and a steady  tirade of sulphorous oaths. It  was an endlessly frustrating task  for the bulls were dim-witted  animals who never learned from  experience.  Low man on the totem pole  was the skid greaser. Shunned  by the others for his rancid  odour, he earned less than 50  cents a day.  While ox logging was the  customary method of getting  logs to the water in these formative years of the trade, there  were other techniques, pro^r  viding the shoreline was steep  enough. One of these was prac-  Garden  notes  by Marguerite  The soil is still quite wet, but  this is the time to spread  dolomite lime on your garden to  sweeten and balance the PH if  required as the rain leaches out  goodness each year. Follow  directions on the bag. Do not  put on fertilizer for another  inonth.  Pruning of apples and pear  trees should be done, and a tar  and oil winter wash given.  Peach trees and allied fruits  need protective spraying against  leaf curl with lime sulpher, or  copper fungicide, timing the application for just on bud burst.  Sowing vegetable seed now  will start crops much earlier  than usual, and a temperature  of 60 degrees ferenheit or 16  celcius will help.  The Gibsons Garden Club  will meet in the Marine Room  on Thursday, March 19 at 7:30  pm. New members and guest  are welcome.

A third man worked  from a rowboat, bucking to  tops off to the first limb and  towing the logs to a standing  boom. It was essential that there  be deep water right to the rocks  for this type of show. Otherwise  the logs could imbed themselves  in the bottom like spears.  After the stumpers had taken  the easiest trees, the hand loggers moved in. These were  generally independent characters who chose to work alone.  They felled the trees that would  not slide to the water unassisted.  After bucking off the tops and  barking the trees, the hand loggers rocked them with jacks until they took off and tobogganed into the sea. A standing  boom was strung beforehand to  prevent the logs drifting away.  The hand logger perferred to  take out spars or boomsticks; he  got more money for long logs  and they were easier to handle.  Neither stumper nor handlogger  paid any sort of stumpage or  royalty for the timber he harvested. There were so many  trees that the government had  given small thought to such  levies.

Well, I'm no chicken. I'm a  "look 'em in the eye", straight-  Ishooter kind of person. So I  ! answered in the affirmative and  lhave  procrastinated  about  it  lever since. The problem is that I  ,;prefer   to   keep  things   fairly  ������upbeat and constructive,  but  ���you need a lot of time and  distance to see the positive influence of Pluto. With it setting  up camp in Scorpio, the sign it  rules, it is having a major effect  on the entire world, a place I  shappen to be personally involved with.  Pluto, the planet of death  and rebirth, has a tendency to  draw out the deepest, darkest  issues and force us to look and  handle them. After that we can  decide what we want to do  about them, but they are no  longer hidden secrets.  Scorpio is the sign of the  "depths", both physically and  metaphorically. It rules the  bowels and the sex organs.  While there are many positive  attributes associated with Scorpio, there is no denying that  abuse of power and sexuality  are negative aspects of the sign.  With Pluto stirring up the  depths of the Scorpionic aspects  of human existence, it was  almost inevitable that when it  entered Scorpio in November,  1983, the first showing of  Something About Amelia hit  North American TV and the  whole issue of sexual abuse was  brought into the limelight.  Nor is it surprising that AIDS  appeared on the scene and has  become a major health problem. Pluto was bound to make  us examine the sexual morals in  society.  Pluto in Scorpio will bring  out many hidden things before  it passes on into Sagittarius. The  metaphorical bowels of the inhabitants of the earth are going  to have their contents exposed  to the light of day. That's what  Pluto does best. Then it's up to  us to decide what we want to do  with it.  The sexual aspects tend to hit  the media first. That seems to  be the nature of our society. But  the abuse of power is another  major issue that needs to, and  will be, looked at whether we  desire it or not.  On a physical level, the increasing amount of earthquake  and volcanic activity also  reflects the compulsion for in  ternal pressures to be released.  It is impossible to predict all  the things of the depths that will  be brought to light or what  political, social or religious  systems will "die" in the next  eight years. But keep in mind  that, like the phoenix there will  be a rebirth process. Whatever  dies will rise again, cleansed of  the garbage that accumulated  over the centuries.  It will be interesting to watch  what happens with the USSR  during   this  time.   There  are  already some minor indications  that Pluto's movement toward  their "natal sun" is being felt.  In July, 1988 it will start moving  steadily into that conjunction  which will be exact in December  1988.  During the entire year of  1989, Pluto will be doing a slow  trot back and forth over  Russia's sun position before it  slowly starts to move on. Can  anyone doubt that the enormous changes in that country's  "personality" which are inevitable, will have a major affect on the world as we know it?.

As you walk through the doors you are enveloped by the  atmosphere of country elegance. Sprays of fresh spring  flowers grace each table. Old-fashioned fluted lamps cast a  warm glow over the rooms, one of which has a fire crackling  in the hearth.  As we sipped our champagne, this was a birthday celebration, the calm beauty of the lodge and soft music soothed  away the problems of the week and by the time the appetizers  arrived we were prepared to enjoy the culinary artistry of the  chef.  The vol-au-vent 'champignon' turned out to be  mushrooms in a delicate sauce encased in flakey pastry that  would please the most discriminating palate. Reluctantly, I  traded bites with my partner, who had ordered the hot  seafood salad. This turned out to be a caper-rich sauce over  warm morsels of shellfish.  As we relished these tidbits, the couple next to us (John and  Marsha perhaps) were raving over their rack of lamb and it  sounded so good that we almost changed our order.  However, in that relaxed atmosphere it took us so long to  discuss it that our steak and prawns arrived before we could  decide.  Another day we will have to return and decide whether we  chose the best entree. Certainly the charcoal-broiled steak and  sweet mouthwatering prawns were as much taste excitement  as this palate has experienced in many years.  To complete the perfect celebration, we each ordered one  Jof the two desserts offered on the menu, both were sheer ambrosia.  The Deal Belle Helene with its bittersweet chocolate sauce  was only slightly les wonderful than the Crepes 'Cointreay' a  luscious concoction with French cream in the centre.  Next time we won't wait for a birthday as an excuse. The  Bonniebrook Lodge makes any dinner a special occasion.

The weather did not seem to  hold back the ball handling of  our own Dan Bell who finished  on top again with a gross of 37  for 9 well played holes. This is  as low as many of us can get as  our low net.  The Seniors must be a fairly  hardy group when you realize  that 82 is a good turnout in the  fine weather of summer.

This was accomplished last week at a combination meeting of the existing  building committee and the  branch executive committee  where a committee was set up  for the new building project  consisting of John Miller, Ber-  nie Ackerman and Mike Timms  to examine the plans to date and  provide input until plans are  finalized.  Your existing fund raising  section will be putting forth a  concerted effort to get a commitment for the balance of the  funds necessary to complete the  new building.  For those of you who may  entertain the thought that our  branch is asking too much of  our governments in requesting  them to provide the balance of  funds necessary, bear in mind  that through effort and hard  work, over the last 20 years', the  branch has been able to contribute in funds and real estate  the equivalent of some $200,000  two hundred thousand dollars  towards the project. Our  members are proud of the accomplishment! ' !  CONCERT  Again through the efforts of  Nikki Weber and Connie  Wilson, a group of local artists  will be presenting "A Night to  Remember".

Chip handling crucial mill work  by I Cent Sheridan  Chip barge handling, unloading, conveying and storing  of wood chip species are the  responsibilities of Port Mellon's  Yard productions shift workers,  also known as the Chip Handling Group.  The mill's tugboat, operated  by the shift waterman and con-  veyorman, positions loaded  chip barges (3000 to 5000 cubic  meters) alongside the dock for  the chip cranes to off-load.  Three to four scow moves per  day may be required to meet  pulping demands. A mixture of  10,000 to 12,000 cubic meters of  hemlock-spruce, fir and cedar  chips per day are needed for the  pulp making process. The  power boilers demand 1500 to  2000 cubic meters of hog fuel  (waste wood for the boiler's furnace), daily which is also harid-   ���������H_  Alongside Howe Sound Pulp's dock are three loaded chip barges, which are being off-loaded by the two  Co'lby cranes.    In the background is the con-veyor incline,  /  Through the mist of sorrow, watch for the soft beacons  of friendship to guide you.

Insert: the hog loader  operator is stock piling hog fuel  for the two power boilers.  ���Kent Sheridan photo  led by the Yard Production  Crew.  The two, 30 year old Colby  Cranes are operated by true  craftsmen. It takes considerable  skill to off-load chips with dated  equipment and still meet the  demands of an upgraded pulp  mill.  The crane operator off-loads  the chips onto the conveyor  belts. Chips for the cooking  process are conveyed to the six  chip silos, where the silo  operator monitors quantity and  chip species requirements for  each silo.  Hog fuel is conveyed to the  hog pile, where the hog loader  operator maintains a constant  feed to the power boiler conveyor system.  The conveyorman is kept  busy with clean-up around the  conveyor belt systems during  this continuous chip handling  process.  The control of chip species  mix, which enables the pulping  process to meet customer requirements is the main priority  for the chip handling group.  Customer specifications pertain  to the strength and absorbency  . of Port Mellon's final product,  kraft pulp.  On the horizon for the Chip  Handling Group is a four  million dollar chip screen installation, which can select chips  of a pre-determined uniform  thickness. This project, which  promises a greater yield and  more uniform product from the  cooking process (digesters), has  involved everyone in the Yard  Production Crew.

Coast News, March 16,1987  arents skeptical about location  by Ken Collins  Two separate parent groups  closely questioned the Sunshine  Coast School Board at Davis  Bay Elementary last Wednesday  evening. The concern was the  decision to centre the French  Immersion program at the  Davis Bay school.  First, the board explained  themselves to a large group of  Davis Bay parents. They then  repeated their reasoning to a  public meeting which included  parents of French Immersion  pupils. In all, they made  themselves available to over 50  people for a solid three hours.  The board was friendly and  accommodating, the parents  persuasive and candid but  throughout the evening the  school trustees stood firm on  their decision. Davis Bay will be  the centre for French Immersion.  For how long? There are now  guarantees. Assistant Superintendent Jack Pope frankly  stated, "We can't gaze into a  crystal ball." They can only  project two or three years ahead  and that is assuming no radical  change in population.  At present, the board feels  Davis Bay is a geographical centre, has the space available, and  using it is economically sound.  Parental concerns are long bussing and stability of school pro  grams. Stability is important.  French Immersion is not  something children can jump in  and out of. There are very rigid  entry points and right now on  the Coast it is Grade 1.  Davis Bay parents are concerned that the existing English  program is not pushed out of  the available space by a flood of  French Immersion enrollments.  They   want   assurance   their  children will not be bussed out  of Davis Bay.  Superintendent Holmes  pointed out that staff benefits  are quite marked having the immersion in one centre. It helps  teachers do their job better.  Trustee Clayton gave the opinion that English program  pupils could find the association  with immersion students very  enriching   out the THRIFT STORE!  above Ken's Lucky Dollar  Proceeds in aid of the Food Bank  Tues. -Sat., 10-4  above Ken's Lucky Dollar  Pender Dump  gets reprieve  The Pender Harbour dump  will remain open for at least the  next 10 years. The regional  board made that commitment  at last week's regular meeting  which was attended by about 20  concerned about the issue.  Area A Director Gordon  Wilson made the motion, adding that until the suggestion  came up recently to close the  dump, "I didn't realize how  strongly people in the Pender  Harbour area felt about it."  Chairman Jim Gurney  pointed out that an engineers'  report stated that the dump was  good for four years and that the  motion could be reversed by  future boards. He suggested an  amendment which would eliminate a specific time commitment.  Wilson  Creek  Centre  to close  After 11 years of operation  the Wilson Creek Family Centre  will be closing its doors. The  house has operated as a treatment facility for minors in need  of special care, but 40 social  workers and district supervisors  have decided that there are less  expensive ways to provide the  same service, Social Services  and Housing District Supervisor  Harvey Bist told the Coast  News last week.  Bist explained that the centre  was considered a district facility  and therefore children from the  Sunshine Coast who were referred there were put on a district-  wide list that was processed  through Vancouver.  The result was that the majority of the placements were  not from this area. "They were  pretty tough kids. A lot more  street-wise than the kids from  here."  Coincidentally, Bist said that  at the same time ministry personnel decided the facility  should be closed, the Wilson  Creek/Davis Bay Community  Association contacted his office  to say that they wanted to  withdraw as sponsors  When it closes its doors at the  end of June, new provisions will  be made for children on the  Sunshine Coast who need to live  away from their families and  receive   special    care.    The  children   will    be   placed   in  "foster homes" where the caregivers   have   received   special  training and the homes will be  supervised from the local office.  John Hughes, Director of the  Wilson Creek Family Centre,  says the closure will be a real  loss. "A lot of the kids were  sent here to get them away from  unhealthy peer groups," he explained.  Gordon Wilson, however, rejected the suggestion saying, "It  is important to diffuse the  mounting concern that the solution to any problem will be closing the dump."  The board pased the original  motion for a 10 year commitment and Area A Planning  Committee Chairman, Billy  Griffith expressed the resident's  thanks for the decision.
