 legislative Library '  Parliament Buildings  Victoria, BC  V8V 1X4  S7&  Sechelt Complex One Step Nearer  Council secures site  All the students and teachers from the smallest school on the Coast, Halfmoon Bay Elementary School,  dressed up to participate in Heritage Day last Tuesday. ���Brad Benson photo  Gibsons expands boundaries  Percheson off hook  A boundary extension and a  policy statement on the matter  was approved earlier this month  by Gibsons Council.  Prompted by a letter from the  provincial Inspector of  Municipal Affairs asking for action on an application from Mr.  Peter Percheson to have his property included in the town,  council has forwarded the application to Victoria with the request that it be approved.  Situated behind'Kingo Diesel  off Highway 101 in a generally  industrialized area, Mr. Per-  cheson's property is used for  auto wrecking and is nonconforming under the Regional  District's zoning by-laws. A  court action is currently pending  on the matter.  Mr. Percheson's zoning problems may be solved by joining  with the Gibsons Municipality.  New zoning will have to be applied and though it will involve  a public hearing, council's approval of his application at this  time is-an indication-that -the  property will be zoned for its  current use.  At the Planning Committee  meeting that approved the application the following policy on  boundary extensions was  adopted:  "It is recognized to be the  democratic right of any property owner to apply to have his  property included within the  town boundaries. Council will  consider applications for boundary extension to include any  property which is adjacent to  town boundaries, provided  there is no capital cost to��"the  town inherent in such extension, ���  whenever applications are  received."  Sechelt Municipal District is  one step closer to having a  recreation/office complex in the  downtown area. At last week's  council meeting Mayor Bud  Koch announced that the  municipality has put a $5000  deposit on 7.88 acres of land adjacent to the Trail Bay Mall.  The $5000 will lock-in the  price on the parcel for six months, while Sechelt Council  decides whether there are  enough government agencies interested in renting office space  to make the entire complex financially viable.  The concept involves combining a recreation centre with an  office complex and possibly a  restaurant. The revenues would  have to cover the deficit of the  public recreation facility.  In an interview with the  Coast News on Friday Mayor  Koch gave details of the plan.  "We've done all the groundwork and we're reasonably confident that we can put a package  together where the books will  balance. If we can provide a  complex where provincial and  federal offices can be located as  well as municipal and possibly  Regional District offices it will  naturally be a lot more convenient for everyone. We know  we need a new courthouse, that  could be located there too.  "We anticipate that government offices' will need about  30,000 square feet, maybe  more."  Regional Board Chairman  Jim Gurney indicated in an interview with this paper that it  was unlikely that the Regional  District would be leasing space  in the proposed complex.  The district owns land and a  building near Capilano College  'which they expect to be in  before next fall. Renovations to  the building are already underway.  Aquarius denied  zoning change  Larry Grafton and Len Herder, of the Sechelt Senior Citizens'  Association Building Committee, accepts an Expo Legacy cheque  for $100,000 dollars from Harold Long, MLA for Mackenzie. This  first installment of the grant will be used to help cover the costs of a  new building for the Sechelt Seniors.  . ���Kent Sheridan photo  Seniors get grant  It was a very special Senior  Citizens' Association meeting  last Thursday in Sechlet. During  the general meeting Len Herder,  Chairman of the Seniors'  Building Committee, entered  the hall, walked up to the  podium and asked for all  members of the Building Committee to please come forward  and stand before the membership, who had turned out in  force to pack the hall.  Harold Long, MLA for  Mackenzie was brought to the  podium where he presented the  association with a cheque for  $100,000.  Mr. Long talked to the  association's membership about  the provincial government's  commitment to senior citizens  and said that this cheque was  the first installment of  $300,000 in provincial funding  for the Sechelt Senior Citizens'  Association.  In his closing remarks to a  verv happy and appreciative  membership, Mr. Long said,  "This will help make the golden  years really golden."  On receiving the $100,000  cheque, Len Herder thanked all  members of the Building Committee for their time and effort  and gave special commendation  to Larry Grafton, who has  worked very hard on the association's Building Committee.  The grant will be used to  replace the existing Senior  Citizens' Hall. The new  building, which will be constructed in Sechelt on the corner  of Medusa and Trail Avenues  will incorporate a 315 seat  theatre space.  The new facility will also be  used as an emergency operations headquarters, to handle  search and rescue missions as  well as for senior citizens' activities.  In a press release, MLA  Harold Long says, "This is the  kind of innovative community  project, which will serve the  whole area and not just the 834  association members. The Expo  Legacy Fund was designed to  make these projects possible."  The recent application by  Aquarius Seafarms to rezone  property in Egmont allowing  the building of a fish packing  plant received "thumbs down"  from the regional district's  Planning Committee last Thursday. Area A Director Gordon  Wilson, who chaired the public  hearing on the application,  recommended rejection for  several reasons.  The primary reason he cited  was a recommendation by the  Department of Highways which  indicated that local roads were  not adequate to service the industrial traffic which would  result from the plant. Wilson  pointed out that the last time a  similar rezoning application was  made in that area, the Highways  Department had expressed a  similar concern which the  regional board had ignored.  "However," Wilson said, "At  the public hearing this time, one  of the things we heard over and  over was that the people who  live in Egmont have found the  industrial traffic to be a problem. The necessary highway  infrastructure is not in place to  handle this new project."  The 'donut zoning' affect  was another reason that Wilson  was against the application. He  expressed concern about the  growing number of situations  where properties in one zoning  category are sandwiched between two properties with other  zoning which set a tone for the  neighbourhood and he emphasized the urgent need to  "clear-up the R-3 zoning."  Wilson told the meeting that  the community of Egmont is  badly divided and the fault lies  with inadequate zoning. Director Peggy Connors agreed saying, "It's time we did something  about By-law 96." By-law 96 is  a portion of the R-3 zoning.  Regional Board Chairman  Jim Gurney told the meeting  that he had been over the property in question with the owner  and had indicated at the time  that he would probably support  the rezoning application.  He expressed regret that he  had been unable to attend the  public hearing but stated that he  had read the minutes of the  meeting and was surprised at  the "lack of community acceptance which is different from  the strong community support  we saw when we reviewed the  Scantech application."  Gurney agreed with Wilson's  recommendation that the application be rejected and the  committee will send that recommendation to the next meeting  of the regional board.  Federal  boundary set  The federal electoral boundary changes were announced  last week and the Sunshine Coast will now be in the North  Island-Powell River constituency.  Although there had been some discussion of including this  area in the West Vancouver riding, MP Ray Skelly told the  Coast News that "Every time it's come up there has been a  major response from the Sunshine Coast. I think the message  finally came through and the electors in this area had their  wishes listened to."  "We'll consider anything,"  said Gurney, "but we're fairly  locked in to the building we  own."  In addition to the increasing  possibility of the downtown  complex, Mayor Koch said that  the municipality expects word  very soon that they have been  given title to land beside the existing arena which will be  developed into a municipal golf  course.  The arena's functions would  be relocated to the downtown  area, making them more accessible to residents, and the  arena would become a convention centre adjacent to a golf  course.  "We're very excited," said  Koch. "Things really seem to be  moving ahead. Once we have  the amenities in place for  ourselves, tourism will take care  of itself.  ^tOMKmVSM  Glover resigns  ^  John Glover, the representative on the Economic Development Commission (EDC) for Sechelt Chamber of Commerce, tendered his resignation on Sunday to EDC Chairman, Maurice Egan.  In his letter to the commission, Glover wrote "...litigation  charges have been filed against me last Friday and I do not  want any embarrassment or problems for the Economic  Development Commission."  McDowell wins  Labour suit  $10,000 in damages and costs  plus interest have been awarded  James McDowell of Gibsons in  his wrongful dismissal case  against the Sunshine Coast  Community Services Society.  The decision was handed down  by Judge D.R. Sheppard of  Vancouver County Court on  February 17.  McDowell had been employed under contract as executive director of the society  from July 1984 until a controversy between one of the  society's long time employees  and McDowell resulted in his  dismissal by the Board of Directors in September, 1985.  The judge ruled that McDowell was wrongfully dismissed  and that damages would equal  the remaining term of his contract; five months at his salary  of $2000 per month.  A request by McDowell to increase the cost portion of the  judgement was refused.  The Sunshine Coast Community Services Society is the  umbrella organization which  co-ordinates most of the social  services offered on the Coast. It  receives its funding from government grants and local community   support.  Asked to comment on the  judgement, Val Silver, President of the society said, "We  will just accept it and move  on." The award will be paid  from a contingency fund set up  for this purpose.  When asked for his comment, James McDowell said, "I  think it is a reasonable judgement. I am relieved that my  reputation as an administrator  has been cleared. What comes  out of this is that no matter how  worthwhile an organization's  goals, if it is to remain publical-  ly accountable, it cannot afford  to disregard an employee's  rights to due process."  SCEPP gets  pesticide  compromise  On Wednesday, February 18,  members of the Sunshine Coast  Environmental Protection Project (SCEPP) met with Gerry  Fraser, Pest Management Forester for CIP Incorporated, to  discuss a current pesticide permit for application of Roundup  near Earle Creek, Egmont.  After two hours of discussion, during which a member of .  the public who is involved in the  forestry industry was present,  CIP agreed to advertise an open  tender for girdling of certain  areas on the permit site, rather  than chemically treat them.  SCEPP was also concerned  about proposed plans to intentionally overspray a stream with  Roundup that is 'sometimes'  dry. After informing the  Department of Fisheries and  Oceans of the concern, both  sides agreed to wait for their  opinion on the matter before  proceeding further. The Department of Fisheries and Oceans  promised to let both SCEPP  and CIP know of its recommendations on Monday, February  23.  Tony Duffy and his coach Barry Krangle will soon be returning  home to a hero's welcome. Duffy won a Gold Medfd in boxing last  week at the Canada Winter Games in Sidney, Nova Scotia.

"This is band business" we were told. Afterwards, when the names of nominees were released the  story seemed to remain the same. Many candidates refused  to be interviewed by the media which meant we had the  choice of running interviews with only those who would  talk to us, leaving us open to charges of biased coverage,  or none at all.  After an initial reaction which could be anticipated from  a reporter thwarted in the pursuit of a major story, there  was the inevitable calming down and consideration of the  reasoning behind the refusals.  Although we might consider the first election of the  Band Council held under their new constitution a story of  national interest, for the Sechelt people this is a very personal affair. There are approximately 200 people living on  Sechelt land who will be voting in this election. Not only  do they each know the candidates personally, but their  histories and family histories.  Non-Indian society has come to accept the media hype  which preceeds any election, complete with image-makers,  speech writers and make-up people. The result has not  necessarily been the election of the best person for the job.  While there are those who express concern that Band  elections may become a simple issue of family allegiances,  is that any less desirable than elections being won or lost  on the basis of advertising budgets? The distance between  the electorate and those who represent them has grown to  be much greater than any ferry ride can bridge. Not so in  the Sechelt elections. The people know the candidates and  what to expect from them.  Whether or not it is a better system, only time and experience will tell. It is debatable whether or not it could be  any worse than the non-Indian system. In the meantime  we can only hope that if the Sechelt people find a "better  way" that they will be willing to share their experience  with the rest of us.  '���rc  5 YEARS AGO  "An oil tank farm has been a dream here on the Coast  for a long time. It looks now that we may be getting  somewhere," Gibsons Alderman Larry Labonte presented a tank farm proposal to the regional board last  week.  The tank farm proposal has been spurred on by the  desire of Gibsons Village to remove the potentially  dangerous and unsightly Shell Oil bulk storage tanks  out of lower Gibsons. .. s i  The proposal Is to purchase 22 acres of waterfront in  West Howe Sound and provide sites for the storage of  petroleum products of the four companies distributing  on the Sunshine Coast: Esso, located at Hopkins Landing; Shell Oil, located in lower Gibsons; Standard Oil,  Davis Bay; and, Gulf Oil, Pender Harbour.  10 YEARS AGO  The annual general meeting of the Sunshine Coast  Community Services Society held in Sechelt on Thursday, February 17, learned that after the usual slow  period following the Christmas season the minibus service is now carrying a full complement of passengers on  most days.  For those of you who are interested in numbers, the  service carried 774 passengers during the month of  January and the minibus travelled 3348 miles.  20 YEARS AGO  The Provincial Home Acquisition Grant Act was introduced by the Minister of Finance in the provincial  legislature on February 3 and Honourable Isabel  Dawson has informed the Coast News that she will be  pleased to follow up personal enquiries respecting this  grant.  The main features of the bill:  It is retroactive to April 1, 1966, which means that a  person can qualify for the grant for a home acquired  since that date.  30 YEARS AGO  Sechelt's oldest taxi business, French's, has been  sold to Harry Sawyer, a partner. Frank French started  his taxi business in 1930 and for some years held the  only taxi licence in that area. Roads were extremely  elementary in those days and at one time there was  none to Pender Harbour. Patients who wished transportation were taken part-way by French's taxi and  transferred to rowboats. Twice during such trips, the  stork caught up to the taxi.  40 YEARS AGO  Eight year old Barry Davis was seriously injured on  February 13, when he chopped his arm while cutting  kindling. The sharp hatchet he was using severed an  artery and two tendons in his arm. Doctor A. Inglis attended the lad after he arrived at Gibsons Landing,  which was some hours after the accident occurred.  The doctor was unable to reach Roberts Creek  because of the mud, so Allen Brines took the injured  'boy in his truck through to Gibsons.

Hill's Machine Shop, February 20, 1987. Carl Horner, present  owner and working machinist, purchased the shop from George  Hill in 1983. Mr. Hill owned and operated the business from just  after World War II to 1983. Carl and son Kevin apply their trade in  the repairing or rebuilding of machinery and equipment for local  businesses. They do machining for logging outfits, booming  grounds and garages. When a part or piece of equipment breaks,  cracks or bends, and if threads strip out on the end of shafts or  pins, Carl is there to machine it back to specifications. Carl has two  lathes and a milling machine. He is capable of handling up to 10  inch diameter stock, depending on weight. Mr. Horner also has a  marine-ways, which can pull vessels, up to 35 tonnes in weight from  the water to a shed beneath his shop. At present the tug Imperial  Falcon is on the 'ways' and is having work done to her propeller tail  shaft and key-way.  ���Kent Sheridan photo  nside an editor's mailbox  by Penny Fuller  Are you tired of opening your  and fliers? Have you ever actually filled out one of those  forms for more information  knowing full well that it would  get you at least six months  worth of junk mail? Have I got  a job for you!  It's been about four weeks  since my employer and patron  saint (?), John Burnside, went  AWOL. Reports have him  lounging in the Mexican sun indulging his hedonistic whims.  Meanwhile, I have been  discovering the wonderful  world of the Editor's mailbox.  , We're not talking about sim-,,  pie local letters to the editor  here, we're talking international  correspondence. At least twice a  week I can look forward to a  government propaganda magazine from South Africa. Apparently these are sent to every  publication in the country with  the hopes that someone will  take up their cause. It's  fascinating to observe where  governments invest their  money.  There's no doubt that press  releases, opinion statements and  conflicting statistics from  various levels of government  take up the bulk of space in my  box. Whether the provincial or  federal government holds the  record for the greatest source of  scrap paper is still a question.  We get everything from Bill  Vander Zalm's homey opinion  column, provided gratis of  course, to tirades from opposition MPs about the trade talks  or fishing boundaries. It's all interesting and unquestionably informative, if only as an insight  into what these people are being  paid to do, but rarely does any  of it have relevence to local  issues. They probably send  press releases on those things to  Fort St. John.  One fun aspect of the sorting  process is deciding whether or  not I've been gifted with an inordinate amount of deja-vu or  if I have indeed read this information before. Government  press people are extremely canny. Knowing full well that much  of what they send out will probably end up in the waste  disposal file, they send the same  package out several times in individual envelopes, hoping that  if you read it several times a  week, you'll think that it actually might be important.  Next in the bulk competition,  comes information packages  from marketing boards. Hogs,  beef, wheat, eggs, broccoli or  bananas; they all have  marketing boards that send out  an abundance of information  which occasionally finds its way  into local papers to fill an  awkward space. For example:  do you know what to do for  swine dysentery (a disease on  every producer's mind)? Do you  care? How about Saskatchewan's final crop report for  1986 which tells me the year  produced a record 25.4 million  tonnes of the six major grains  and oilseeds? Remember folks,  you heard it here first.  Before I leave this job I may  put together an "Editor's  Trivia Game", just so all this  diverse information gets put to  some use.  I also get a great deal of correspondence from helpful folk  who want to save my soul.  From the quantity received, I  would guess that the general  consensus is that editors need all  the help they can get. They may  be right.  What we have left is a pile of  assorted press releases from  various charities and sports  groups, and of course, the inevitable letters to the editor.  The latter group gets subdivided. Category A: copies of  letters to politicians; Category  B: copies to others (general);  Category C: letters to this paper  only.  You have to admit that it's  always more interesting to get a  letter specifically sent to  yourself, and having a normal,  healthy ego, my inclination is to  print those first. It also addresses the problem of boring  readers with identical copy in  two local papers.  Second on the priority list are  letters which may be written to  other people but contain new or  different information on local  issues.  Third and last, space is given  over to copies of letters that  don't really have anything new  to say but aren't libelous.  The libelous mail doesn't get  any category, it goes straight into the garbage. But the public  would be amazed at the nasty  name calling that people are  willing to have published above  their names. If you object to  what is printed, you should take  a look at what gets tossed out.  Of course every person has  their own system of sorting and  categories may undergo a  change when my wayward  managing editor wanders home.  Until that time I intend to keep  the waste disposal industry  booming.  Conversion of a defense worker  by Alan Wilson  V-  SUBSCRIPTION RATES  Canada: 1 year $35; 6 months $20; Foreign; 1 year $40  J  Robert Aldridge, a former  missile designer from California, was in Nanaimo last week  with his wife Janet, to testify at  the trial of the "Motherpeace  8", the protestors charged with  trespass at Nanoose.  Although the dismissal of  charges against the "8" kept  Aldridge from giving his  testimony, he and Janet were  well received at gatherings in  Victoria, Vancouver, Nanoose,  and on Gabriola, where they  were able to explain the evolution of their thought leading to  his 1973 resignation from  Lockheed.  In an interview in my home,  Aldridge began by mentioning  his World War II combat experience in the Phillipines and  the post-war studies in  aeronautical engineering which  led to his employment as an  engineer at Lockheed. He was  involved with the development  of the first submarine-launched  missile, the Polaris, and later  began to work on re-entry  vehicles for the Poseidon  ballistic missile.  During this period of his life,  he felt he was making a positive  contribution to his country and  that his work supported the  policy of deterrence. But in  1970, when he began to work on  the Trident missile, he realized  that a critical new stage had  been reached. Here was a missile much more accurate than  was needed for "mutually  assured destruction," the threat  of massive retaliation on which  deterrence was built.  The accuracy of Trident provided the first glimmerings in  his mind of a possible preemptive first-strike to knock out  Soviet missiles in their silos  before they could be launched.  Coupled with the revelations  of preceeding years with regard  to US atrocities in Vietnam,  hearing of US soldiers pushing  Vietcong prisoners from helicopters during interrogation,  the My Lai massacre, massive  bombings, etcetera, Aldridge  came to question the assumption of US moral superiority.  During this time, he came  across a book called The  Respectable Murderers, which  outlined the idea of "moral self-  deception", which he began to  feel pertained to his own situation. He described this self-  deception as consisting of: 1)  repression or denial of facts; 2)  rationalization ("I'm just  following orders"); 3) sublimation, soothing one's conscience  by engaging in trivial "good  deeds"; and, 4) the apparent  impossibility of effective action  ("Nothing I can do will change  anything").  In 1972, as he became more  involved with the peace movement, he was sent by a Catholic  lay association to Hawaii to give  support to those on trial for a  protest action at Hickham Air  Force Base, the headquarters  for the air war in Vietnam. One  evening during the trial he participated in a meeting which included a lawyer who had been a  prosecuting attorney at the  Nuremberg War Tribunal, and  he learned that the principles  established at Nuremberg condemned as "crimes against  peace" even the planning and  preparation for war.  He realized that the work he  was involved in was precisely  that, preparation for war, and  this realization led inexorably to  his resignation in 1973. At that  point he began researching and  writing about defence matters,  with his wife taking up the  duties as breadwinner for the six  of their 10 children who were  still then at home.  When Aldridge first began to  point out the dangers of a first-  strike capability, he repeatedly  faced the counter-argument that  Soviet ballistic missile submarine forces made a US first-  strike untenable since subs were  supposedly undetectable. This  led him to study anti-submarine  warfare (ASW).  After several months of intensive research into ASW,  Aldridge arrived at the conclusion that whereas some (like Joe  Clark still) supposed this work  for the protection of shipping  lanes in times of conflict, or for  protection of US ballistic missile  subs, in fact, the ASW technology was designed for the open  ocean, for the detection and  destruction of the Soviet  ballistic missile subs.  At this point he elucidated a  set of criteria which would be  essential for a true first-strike  capability: 1) space weaponry;  2) missile accuracy; 3) advanced  ASW technology; 4) ballistic  missile defence; and, 5) enhanced command, control communication and intelligence  capabilities.  His research showed him  conclusively that these five were  being actively pursued, and that  ASW was the most highly developed of the five components.  For this reason he has labelled  ASW as "the key strategy".  Although his book, First-  Strike: The Pentagon's Strategy  for Nuclear War, appeared  before Star Wars had come on  the scene, it has taken on extra  meaning since. As we know,  there has been massive scientific  and popular condemnation of  Star Wars on the grounds that  no system could ever provide  perfect defence. But, says  Aldridge, when seen from the  standpoint of being but one  component in a first-stike  strategy (as a space-based  ballistic missile defence), Star  Wars does make sense.  As he says, Star Wars is "far  more credible as part of a first-  strike capability". If highly accurate missiles are launched  against Soviet missiles while still  in their silos, knocking out the  threat of Soviet retaliation, and  if most or all of the Soviet sub-  launched missiles are eliminated  by ASW, then perhaps even a  highly imperfect Star Wars  could adequately deal with the  remainder.  Not a very comforting prospect in a world supposedly  balancing on the thin logic of  deterrence. Of course this is not  to say that the US has any intention of launching such a strike.  But as Aldridge points out, such  a capability would present a  great incentive for both sides to  launch first in a crisis, the  Soviets for fear their missiles  might be knocked out, and the  US knowing their chances of  "winning" are much improved  if they hit first. Coupled with  launch-on-warning, this is a  prescription for disaster. Coast News, February 23,1987  ��iiiniianiiii^.i����.iiii  .at@s go isp witli��isf protest  Editor:  Here we go again! The B.C.  Ferries has won its victory over  the increase in ferry fares.  Remember the crisis created  two years ago when fares and  commuter rates were reviewed?  B.C. Ferries retracted their  original stand due to the protests of the locals, by giving us  books of five commuter tickets,  but still holding to the fare increase. This was hailed by the  local newspapers as a victory  brought about by public intervention - BALONEY!  The real commuters, people  who use the ferries five days a  week to go to work, university  or what-have-you, lost their  monthly resident's pass, which  at that time represented a  notable difference in fares,  remember?  This time the same old tactics  were used suggesting charges  that initially scared the pants off  ferry users (books of tickets  costing $307.50), and which the  ferry authorities were again  prepared to retract. Yet again  the ferry price increase of  another $1.50 slipped through  and appears to be accepted by  residents and regional representatives alike. And again, our  local newspapers "are pleased  to announce..."  It is my understanding that  the main reaction to the latest  fare changes came from the  Nanaimo and Comox area.  Hooray for them! I understand  their concern. However, the  Sunshine Coast has an entirely  different set of conditions. We  do not live on an island which  has its own large heart city, Victoria, complete with universities, colleges, hospitals, large  shopping areas and work opportunities.  We live on the mainland  within ten miles or so from our  heart city Vancouver. We have  the main 101 Highway passing  through our area, and yet we  are obliged to do all our commuting into Vancouver by  ferry. Were we anywhere else in  the province with our population size we would have roads,  and bridges if necessary, to  make the required access.  I am not suggesting that the  Department of Highways  should start building the missing  road connection tomorrow; one  day this will be a reality I am  sure! In the meantime, the Province of B.C. should recognize  our unique situation, and  understand the difference between Vancouver Island and the  Sunshine Coast.  If, in their wisdom, the  Department of Highways considers it necessary to use the  ferry system as part of the  highway link, as a substitute for  the road connection between the  Sunshine Coast and Vancouver,  they should be prepared to offer  the residents of the Coast a  substantial concession in the  fares demanded by B.C. Ferries. What they charge tourists  and others who travel on the  ferry is one thing. What they  should charge for full time tax-  paying residents is another.  Incidentally, I understand a  senior citizen, according to B.C.  Ferries, is a person who is 65  years of age or more, whereas  banks, universities, colleges and  commercial outlets throughout  Canada and even Expo considered a senior one who is 60  years of age and over. What  gives!!  Is it not time we received  Long's cry of "NO MORE."  Ross E. Buchanan  Letter to Area A  Editor:  The following is an open letter to the people of Area A.

In order to address these concerns, I asked Mr. Dixon to  prepare a report on both sites  with some recommendations  that the board might consider.  In the process of this review,  Mr. Dixon made the board  aware of the professional advice  of the board's engineers which  was to terminate the use of the  Pender site in favour of a centralized disposal in Sechelt.  I would like the people of  Area A, to be aware that the  board is in the process of  reviewing the sites, and the best  way to provide garbage disposal  for thcresidents of Area A. We  have at no time made a decision  to close the Pender site, neither  would we take such action  without first consulting you, the  people of Area A.  We must, however, continue  to address the two issues that  are mentioned above. In doing  that, I assure you every consideration will be given to the  residents of the area, and to the  continued safe use of the existing facility. Whatever the  conclusions, I take this opportunity to assure you that you  will be kept informed and consulted prior to any action being  taken.  Gordon Wilson  Unhealthy  fund  raising  Editor:  With reference to the caption  with Brad Benson's photo of  kids devouring cookies at a  Valentine's party in order to  reduce the cost of this year's  yearbook. I wonder how much  of a 'party' this could have been  for the children without money  to pay for those cookies, or for  parents that are not particularly  interested in a yearbook.  I wish the school would think  of healthier ways to make  money if they must.  G. Vandermeer  /' 1 RENEWAL?  / Come see us...

In the background is the large White Liquor Clarifier tank. ���Kent Sheridan photo  *-\  Pulpmakers of Port Mellon  by Kent Sheridan  i?'The recausticizing's role in  the pulp-making system at Cantor's mill in Port Mellon, begins  when the caustic solution, from  tile Recovery Furnace's dissolving tank, is pumped to and  stored in, a large settling tank  called a Green Liquor Clarifier.  ;?-The caustic solution is called  green   liquor  because   of  it's  green   colour,   which   results  from iron impurities.  ��� "After the green liquor settles  oiit, it is treated with lime in a  staker (reactor tank), which initiates a chemical reaction in the  solution. This reaction proceeds  through three smaller tanks called causticizers or reactors.  ���^The   caustic   solution   now  pisses  to  the  White   Liquor  Clarifier, where the insolubles  inthe solution settle to the bot  tom of the tank. A clear active  caustic solution is left called  White Liquor, which is ready to  be mixed with the wood chips.  The Caustic Operators' job  lies mainly with the careful  monitoring of liquid flows and  levels within, and to and from,  the clarifiers and causticizers,  the addition of lime to the  slakers (reactor tanks), and the  control and testing of the  caustic solutions' strength. A  vigilant inspection of all pumps,  tanks and equipment that fall  under his responsibility also  keep him busy.  Safety practices are essential  here, as they are in all areas  throughout the mill. When a  utility man (labourer-helper) or  tradesman enters the caustic  area he must report to the  Caustic Operator and advise  him as to the nature of the job  he has been assigned and where  in the area he will be working.  Protective equipment is mandatory while working in the  caustic plant area. Men wearing  eye protection goggles, face  shields, rubber gloves and  yellow protective suits are a  common sight in this area.  Whenever an empty tank,  pump, or piece of machinery is  to be repaired anywhere in the  mill, a strict Safety Lock-Out  Procedure is enforced. This entails: the de-energizing and locking out of any driven machinery  as well as the locking out and  blanking off of any connecting  valves and pipes by both the.  operator in charge and the men  who have been assigned to work  on the equipment.

The object of last Thursday's general  meeting, open to Band  members only, is one such first.  Members met for three hours to  discuss their 1987 budget which,  when approved, will be the first  Indian Band budget approved  by its own council and electors,  and not by the Minister of Indian Affairs.  In an interview with Chief  Stan Dixon, he reported that,  "The meeting went fine, but the  budget is not approved yet." In  order for members to understand the budget in more detail,  a workshop is scheduled for this  Thursday and a special general  meeting will be held on Thursday, March 5, for approval by  Band members.  The budget, together with  any amendments, will then be  ratified by the Band Council  and forwarded to Ottawa where  it will be included in an  operating funding formula  prepared by the Minister of Indian Affairs. This formula,  which was negotiated at the  time of independence, establishes the amount of an annual  lump-sum federal payment due  to arrive in April.

There you will  see a window full of her work.  Go' take a look some time.  Meanwhile, congratulations  Aileen.  Royal Treatment  RAIPURDY  by Ruth Forrester  Rai and Verity Purdy of Sandy Hook received royal treatment in Glasgow, Scotland,  where they were invited as  guests of STV, which is the  Scottish Television Network.  They spent two weeks over the  Christmas holiday being wined  and dined as VIPs.  The reason for this was that  the 30th anniversary of STV  was being celebrated, and it was  Rai Purdy who had directed  and introduced the very first  Hogmanay (New Year) show in  1957 out of Glasgow.  Part of it was filmed in the  old Theatre Royal while the rest  was from the old Tolbooth at  Glasgow Cross where a crowd  of 15,000 good natured revellers  were waiting for the bells to  stroke the midnight hour.  Although the vintage film  was in black and white it was  remarkably good considering  that only four cameras were used as compared with about 10  nowadays for a similar type of  production.  It was Roy Thomson, later  Lord Thomson of Fleet, who in  1956 invited Rai to come over  from New York where he was  working for CBS directing a  weekly program from the Stork  Club, a post which he had taken  over from Yul Brynner, who  had just successfully auditioned  for The King and I. At that time  there were no experienced  television personnel in Scotland,  so Rai took up the challenge.  In an interview with the  Glasgow Herald, Rai recalled,  "We couldn't get experienced  cameramen. Luckily I knew a  good deal about cameras, so I  was able to train the ones we  hired. They were people just off  the street, almost."  The opening night show,  which he produced in 1957, included Jack Buchanan and  David Niven, and was introduced by James Robertson Justice.  The Purdys spend three happy years in Scotland, and when  STV was on a firm footing,  Thomson asked Rai to go to  Toronto to get another station  off the ground. Following this  they moved to Vancouver where  Rai set up his own independent  production company which he  still owns.  Also, a new series, The Stress  Point, which will be seen in the  near future on CKVU.  On the local scene, Rai is now  president of the Eileen Glassford   Theatre   Foundation,  where his expertise will be put to ,  good use.  More congratulations go out  to Dave and Helen Hayes who  have just been presented with a  brand new granddaughter.  Their daughter Deanna of Ab-  botsford gave birth to the little  girl.  AT THE HALL  About 30 folks gathered at  Welcome Beach Hall last Saturday night for a most enjoyable  Tub Night'. The Vorleys once  again did a great job of organizing the affair, Bill providing his  'Disco' set-up and Marg taking  care of the food department  with delicious chili and goodies..  It's always a surprise that  more people don't turn out for  these really fun nights, but the  ones who did go had a really  good time.  Next date on the calander is  March 14 for a St. Patrick's  Day dinner and dance. It would  be a good idea to reserve your  tickets now by calling 885-9032.  SUDDEN PASSING  Friends of Gwen Harris of  Redrooffs were saddened to  learn of her sudden passing last  week. Gwen was a sweet quiet  lady who.found much joy in her  favourite hobby, gardening.  She will be sadly missed by her  husband Vernon.  BROWNIES  The little girls of Halfmoon  Bay Brownie Pack have been  very busy collecting used  postage stamps for the ladies of  the OES. They were curious as  to the use of the stamps, so Mrs.  Sylvia Woodsworth of Silver  Sands came along to a Brownie  meeting to explain. She brought  with her some samples of the  cancer dressings for which the  monies raised are used and gave  an interesting talk on postage  stamps from all over the world.  Another good lady who has  been helping the Brownies is  Elise Rudland who has been  teaching the girls some sign  language and showing slides of  disabled children. This all helps  for a better understanding of  children less fortunate than  themselves.

Garden retreat  in Vancouver  by George Cooper, 886-8520  Grade 5 Division students at Roberts Creek Elementary School  represented the West Indies at Multicultural Night last Thursday by  dancing the Limbo to a packed auditorium. ���Brad Benson photo  Just a 10 minute walk from  the bus depot in Vancouver, on  the edge of Chinatown at Carroll and Pender, is the park and  garden opened in 1986 in the city's centennial year.  The park and garden was  planned to aid in the development of Chinatown as a unique  neighbourhood and to promote  an understanding of Chinese  culture.  After several years of planning done jointly by Vancouver  and Suzhou, the garden city of  China, the classical garden and  adjoining park were constructed  in 1985.  , Artisans versed in the care  and maintenance of the gardens  in Suzhou spent a year in Vancouver to build this special place  of delightful serenity, the first  one, by the way, to be constructed outside of China, and  Pender People W Places  Harry Munro is tops  by Joan Wilson, 883-9606  February's Pender Person  can build, fix or create anything  he puts his mind to. He arrived  with his Avife Louise and family  from Richmond in 1967, working first as a handyman, and  later on the maintenance staff  of School District 46. Yes,  Harry Munro, it's you!  Harry's favourite hobby is  lapidary, and he spends many  hours creating beautiful  jewellery from the pieces of  rock he has polished. Some of  these pieces have travelled all  across the country and to other  parts of the world.  Harry is a master fixer too,  and I thank him publicly for  repairing my slide projector. He  and custodian Ray Mair built  the cedar plant stands for the  Pender Harbour Secondary  foyer, and Harry, on his own  time, made the school name  that graces the roof.

The open gate welcomes  all to enter the walled enclosure.  It is an introduction to another  concept of a park; namely,  quiet, restful, unhurried.  Then make your way to the  entrance to the classical garden.  Pay your admission fee without  a murmur of complaint for you  have before you as many  delights as you can savour.  Only after walking  throughout the cloistered area  on your own to get those first  vivid impressions should you  look for one of the guides, a  band of volunteers who cheerfully agree that they should pay  for the privilege to work there.  The classical garden in Vancouver is not a scale model nor a  copy of any in Suzhou. It is a  new creation although, you will  be told, inspiration was taken  from some of the gardens there,  the Garden of the Humble Civil  Servant, for example. Later you  read that only the wealthy were  ever able to build these gardens.  A souvenir booklet quotes  the architects of the garden saying, "It blends architecture and  nature; it combines buildings,  water, rocks and plants. No one  thing dominates. Contrasts of  light and shadow give unending  variety."  The limestone rocks pried  from a lake bottom near Suzhou provide natural sculptures  painstakingly set in the position  that is most aesthetically appealing.  Blossoms of some kind can  be seen at any season. The other  week witch hazel was the only  shrub in bloom, but all the more  noticeable because of that.  The classical garden has four  scenic areas; the main hall and  entrance, the roofed walkways  and water pavilion, the central  area of pond, rockery, and  waterfall, and the scholar's  study and courtyard.  Give yourself time when you  visit to catch the peaceful air of  the place.

See story on page 17. ���Jamie Stephens photo  Farnham Garden  owners must pay  l Last month's plea from six Farnham Gardens condominium owners asking that the Town of Gibsons forgive  the water connection fees for their units has been turned  down.  The property owners objected to the fees, $550 for each  unit, on the grounds that they should have been collected  from the developer when the project was first built six years  ago.  However, the fees could not be collected because the  developer went bankrupt before completing the project.  Roberts Greek  by Jeanie Parker, 885-2163  The Community Association  meeting last Wednesday was  short and sweet despite the  range of business covered. The  main topic was supposed to be  the new water main but a lot of  people were concerned about  the rocks blocking beach access  for boat launching at the mouth  of Roberts Creek.  Regional Director Brett  McGillivray stated that negotiations were taking place and different alternatives for a boat  launch site were being considered. Area D's participation  in the Howe Sound Recreation  Commission will make more  funds available for such  development.  The Community Association  Executive had been approached  with an offer, tp purchase part  of the land behind the Post Office. While the piece in question  serves no obvious purpose now,  the executive felt that it would  be short-sighted to relinquish it.  The majority at the meeting  agreed defeating a motion to bring up the question at the next  meeting.  Regional Board Works  Superintendent Gordon Dixon  was at the meeting to explain  the water system and the implications of the new main being  installed along the highway. He  said we have a very good system  with the potential to provide a  population of 200,000 with ample water. And the hydrant  pressure meets the standards of  the insurance companies so we  have the lowest coverage rates  possible with a volunteer fire  department.  The system works largely by  gravity so distribution depends  upon elevation. A higher intake  at the water source is being installed so residences up to the  400 foot elevation may be supplied.  As the line is extended along  the highway (as far as the  Peninsula Hotel next year), the  lots touching the highway will  be able to hook up to regional  water. They don't have to hook  up but they will still have to pay  $200 per year in land charges.  The Regional District will bring  the lines as far as the property  line for a hook-up fee of $600.  People on the side roads such  as Joe will have to petition for a  water line. There must be  enough people to warrant it.  People can get more information from the Regional Board  office.  SCHOOL ADDITIONS  School Board Secretary Roy  Mills will be at the Roberts  Creek Parents' Auxiliary  meeting this Wednesday,  February 25, to explain the  policy regarding additions to the  school. This should be of interest to many people so come  out at 7 pm, Wednesday to the  meeting at Roberts Creek  Elementary.  MIRROR NEEDED  Does anyone out there have a  spare mirror they would care to  donate to the Community Hall?  The one in the men's washroom  was broken recently.  Or how about a vanity or  cabinet of some kind for the  women's washroom? The Community Association is broke and  can't afford to spend money on  such things. Please phone Debbie Osier at 886-3994 if you can  help.  PRIORITIES  Did you know that community groups have priority in the  evening at the Joint Use Facility  in the gym as well as downstairs? This means you cannot  be cancelled for a school function if you have the prior booking.  A group with a regular booking may be asked by another  group to give up an evening but  they are under no obligation to  do so. It is hoped that groups  can co-operate to allow more  people to use the facility.  The Thursday night  volleyball group has had problems with being pre-empted. If  anybody else has complaints  about the access to Kraus Hall  please call Ricki Moss at Continuing Education or Jeanie  Parker.

Coast News, February 23,1987  llSiftSiiiiiBil  When American readers proudly claim W.P. Kinsella for  their own, they are always surprised to hear that he is a Canadian, born and bred, and proud  of it. Kinsella will be reading  some of his work at the Arts  Centre on Friday, February 27  at 8 pm. The affair is free and  everyone is welcome.  It is Kinsella's love of  baseball, and the stories he  writes about it, that confuse his  American fans. One of his  books, The Iowa Baseball Confederacy, had a hefty first printing of 40,000. Not bad for a  farm boy from Alberta who has  been everything from a taxi  driver to a university professor,  and who scorns the literary  establishment. "I would rather  have a longshoreman read my  stuff and laugh and shout and  cry and say, "You're a helluva  writer, Kinsella!" he says.  Indians are Kinsella's other  subject. He writes of them with  such authenticity and understanding that a professor in Ontario declared that he was a  native Cree.  Imagination is one of the  traits a writer needs, according  to Kinsella. "You have to have  the ability to write sentences in  clear, straight forward English,  the passion to keep readers turning pages and make them love  the characters, and the stamina  to keep your buns on the  chair," he says.  by Peter Trower  Part of the cast for Bus Stop at rehearsals last week.

The play is set in a small town  in the American Mid-West during a night in early March in the  1950's. When a bus and all its  passengers are stranded by a  blizzard, they are forced to  spend the night in a small roadside diner.  Alice Albrecht plays Grace,  the tough but lonely owner of  the shabby diner. Alice originally joined Driftwood during a  summer play production of  Ayckbourn's Confusions. She  was most recently seen in Drift-  wood's production of Table  Manners also by Ayckbourn.

In Bus Stop she plays  Elma, an innocent high school  girl.  Terry Weatherill is ho  stranger to Coast playgoers. He  too started his acting career at  Elphinstone and after that joined Driftwood. He appeared last  summer in John Kelly's Loggerheads. Terry plays the local  sheriff, an ex horse thief who  has joined the church.  Cherie, the chanteuse, is  played by Kim Clayton, a newcomer to the Coast. Kim comes  originally from Oregon where  she says she acted "kitchen"  drama for her family's pleasure.  After that she appeared in high  school plays. This is her first appearance with Driftwood.  John Marion, John Kruse  and John John Morris play,  respectively a former college  professor and two cowboys.

It  will be starting at 8 pm on  February 26, 27, 28 and March  5, 6 and 7. Tickets at the door.  The final event on the agenda  is a potluck supper and a party  at the home of one of the members. Prior to this, however,  Yvonne, Paula Wild, Carl  Nelson and myself pay a very  interesting visit to the Sointula  Museum.  Here, the town comes into  true focus at last for Yvonne  and myself. In the museum are  all the homey artifacts of much  simpler times: butter churns, archaic   baby   carriages,   rusty  broad axes,  spinning   wheels,  musical instruments from half  forgotten bands, crude farm implements,  the charter of the  2    original Utopians, school text-  |[   books in Finnish, old fashioned  g.   film projectors from the days.  je    when  they had  once weekly  s   movies at the town hall, ancient  *    dressers and a primitive mural  commemorating   the   original  settlers at their labours.  Perhaps the most interesting  and touching item in the whole  museum is a series of photographs assembled by the Finnish  members of the Sointula senior  citizens' Jiome. The pictures are  inscribed in broken English.  "Look those cows!" someone  has written proudly under the  faded photograph of some long  ago dairy herd. Many of the  pictures are group shots of  various old timers. Over the  heads of some of the figures,  small crosses have been inked. I  ask Carl about this. "It means  they've passed on since the pictures were taken," he says.  "Not too many of the old folks  left now."  Glancing through a pile of  old newspapers, I suddenly spot  reference to a story I have been  trying to track down for years.  It involves the murder on  Minstrel Island, of a local  fisherman called Spitz, a case  that remained unsolved until an  Alert Bay man confessed to the  killing over 20 years later. Paula  Wild promises to Xerox the  items and send them to me.  We leave the museum and  proceed to the party. It proves  to be one of the best get-togethers I have attended in some  time.

SfflSHIONS' Godfrey Stephens  Coast News, February 23,1987  11.  by Brad Benson  Secured among the boats  moored at the government  wharf in Gibsons harbour this  winter is a 36 foot steel-hulled  sailboat belonging to Godfrey  Stephens, a man known affectionately to his close friends as  'Goof. Wopd smoke drifts  from the cabin stove and on the  bow is a hand carved plaque  declaring the vessel's name to be  Mungo. At first glance, it seems  a catchy attempt at staying in  character with the funkiness of  the many strange but functional  hand-made fittings that give the  boat its unique personality.  But the boat is not whimsically named as so many are. It is  named for Mungo Martin, a  Kwagulth (Kwakiutl) Indian  who was 10 times elected Chief  of his nation at Fort Rupert and  who had a profound influence  on Stephens' life.  As a boy of 11, Stephens met  Mungo Martin in Victoria's  Thunderbird Park, where the  provincial government had invited the most famous native  carver of the time to come and  create the totems that still stand  there today.  A friendship developed between the two that lasted until  Chief Mungo died in 1962. He  taught Stephens the art of carving, and much about the experience of living. He also gave  young Stephens an elbow adze,  a gift that now, 37 years later,  Stephens says he has never put  down.  Stephens' work with wood is  versatile, ranging from traditional native frog bowls and  wild woman masks to free-form  abstracts and realistic human  forms. His portrait sculptures,  such as a likeness carved in arbutus of Nanaimo Mayor Frank  Ney, are strikingly life-like.  Stephens is also a gifted  painter, whose particular style  involves a combination of line  and detail that move in and  through each other in what he  terms as puzzles. The effect is  graceful and dramatic, and a  delight for the viewer to  unravel.  His work impresses most of  those who see it. Parks Canada  purchased an abstract sculpture  as a gift for Princess Anne during  the  inauguration  of the  Pacific Rim National Park on  Vancouver Island's west coast.  Actor Peter Finch purchased  pne of Stephen's paintings for  his private collection. Musician  pavid Foster's first album cover  was   executed   by   Stephens.  Waterfront pubs in the West Indies,   Greece,   California  and  here  in   Gibsons  display   his  work.   A   two   ton   abstract  ^sculpture   stands   in   New  -Westminster's   Royal   Square  and two are displayed in the  lobby of the Times Colonist  :press building in Victoria.  *��� Of  these   last  two   pieces,  ^writer  Stanley Burke,  in the  Nanaimo Times wrote, "These  ii-widely-admired poles have their  [centres carved out leaving flow-  |ing   ribbons   of   intertwined  rwood. The result is a sinuous  'powerful carving..."  f' Though his works are ad-  Jmired by buyers and a few  ^critics, he is not well known in  higher   echelons   of   the   art  Retirement  course  There are a great many people at Capilano College who will  be watching like proud parents  when the first segment of the  telecourse, Planning Your  Retirement, airs on the  Knowledge Network on February 24 and 28.

Asked why, Stephens explains that he is too busy living  to spend the time necessary to  develop these outlets. Nor is he  interested in dealing with the  hype he feels they require. As he  puts it, "the world is my  gallery."  has never taken a government  handout.  In the early 70's, he lived and  worked on the wild beaches of  the west coast of Vancouver  Island. Ironically, it was the inauguration of the Pacific Rim  Godfery Stephens works on an abstract sculpture in perhaps the smallest  studio on the Coast, aboard his sailboat Mungo.  He is more comfortable outfitting Mungo for its next  voyage while selling or bartering  his pieces locally. Stephens is as  much, if not more of an adventurer than a working artist.  He has travelled throughout  the United States, Europe,  North Africa, India, Mexico,  Central America, the Caribbean  and the Mediterrean. He has  gone through four passports  and over 60 countries, lived for  long periods in Greece and  Mexico, and speaks both  languages. And all the while,  earning his way with his art.  Never has he held down a  regular job and though he's  been broke hundreds of times,  National Park, which gave him  national publicity for his  sculpture for Princess Anne,  that converted his wilderness  home to a national park arid  forced him to leave.  Before this happenedi however, he developed a love for the  sea and understood that by living and travelling on it, he  would always have his home  with him. He built his first boat  in Esquimalt in 1973, a 34 foot  gaff-riffed Wharran catamaran;  Three years later, on  Wickaninnish Island off Long  Beach, he built his second  wooden boat, a 32 foot Ketch  named Pookmis. It was constructed entirely .from available  OMEGA RESTAURANT  PIZZA SPECIAL  LAKCit, Pizza for the price of a Medium  MEDIUM Pizza for the price of a Small  yj^A-P \   for month of February  M^S  driftwood and except for the  use of a chainsaw, no power  tools were used.  His latest boat, Mungo was  built on Pratt Road in Gibsons.  It was designed and had its  frameless steel hull welded  together by Brent Swain. In this  boat, Stephens cut two sea windows in the hull below the water  line, an unusual feature that intrigues even seasoned sailors.  For seven hectic months  Stephens carved, painted,  bartered and traded before  launching Mungo and sailing  off to Mexico.  He has sailed as far south as  Mexico's Puerto Vallarta and as  far north as the Queen  Charlotte Islands.    .  A serious side of Stephens  drew him back to his old stomping grounds on the west coast of  Vancouver Island where he  joined with the Friends of  Clayaquot Sound in the 1984  Easter protest against the logging of Meares Island. He stayed  the summer and carved a symbolic 17 foot weeping cedar  woman that stands in protest in  front of Meares, on Strawberry  Island.  Stephens is currently working  on a series of sculptures that will  refit Mungo for its next trip. If  all goes well, he'll sail this May  to Fort Rupert on northern  Vancouver Island, Chief  Mungo Martin's old village and  now the home of another carver  and old friend, Tony Hunt.  Further in the. future,  Stephens hopes to visit the  Queen Charlottes again, and see  the Alaskan coast. His longest  voyage, if dreams come true,  will be to French Polynesia,  where an old artist friend runs a  beachfront gallery.  But Stephens will always  come back to Gibsons. He likes  it for being easy going, but near  enough to the city and he thinks  it brings him good luck. "It's a  good place for me to get things  done. There are good friends  and good feelings here. I keep  coming back."  v*Mt��- ����*-  WBffisSgffl  THIS WEEK'S  Dinner Special  TERIYAKI STEAK  $A95  with all the trimmings  Also  Come in for our Daily Lunch Specials  '/UtV^r  Cedar Plaza, Hwy 101, Gibsons  886-8138  ~ __�� i____ ih <���!���;". ~  Come as you are  to our renovated  facilities for one  or several of our  new appetizers.  k'VS'l  Opeii from 4 pm on  Tuesday - Saturday  starting Feb. 24th  Don't forget our CHICKEN FEAST  every Sunday from 5:00 pm  CASA  RESTAURANT  Highway 101, Davis Bay  885-2911  Q  PIZZA  886-2268  CABARE  OPEN    8 pm -2 am  Thursday...  ...til 10 pm  male waiters  Door prizes  Surprises  Feb. 26  start* "��v  Your guide to  the finest in  area dining  DINING GUIDE  A listing of  restaurants  and pubs  Hey Sechelt residents! They heard us down the road in  Gibsons, the pizza, steak and spaghetti house capital of the  Sunshine Coast. Pronto's is coming to the corner of Wharf  and Dolphin Streets in the beginning of April! Well this person with a passion for pasta just couldn't wait. I readied the  kids and talked a friend into a preview of what's in store for  us (talking her into it was the easiest things I did all day).  For those of you who don't know, Prontos' Gibsons home  is at the Cedars Plaza, across from the Cedars Pub, and has  been there for the last 6 years. About time you made a move  up the road!  We arrived on the scene of a very busy Thursday night and  Gwen, as usual, was running her energetic and efficient legs  off. We were seated at a lovely window seat and promptly  served coffee (ahh) and milk for the kids. After a painfully  long time, we finally made up our minds.  We were in a most decadent mood (having left the dishes in  the sink at home and not caring) and had for our appetizers,  sizzling escargots in garlic butter and scallops just dripping in  clarified butter. Too bad we had to share most of it with the  munchkins.  Dinner arrived after an appropriate interval (our appetizers  well digested and the kids weren't jumping out of the windows yet). My friend also has a serious case of pasta fever and  enjoyed a huge dish of lasagna accompanied with Caeser  salad which was very nicely spiced, which she shared with her  child who was munching happily on one of Dean's great pizzas. Either George or Dean get gold stars for my charbroiled  salmon steak served with rice and al dante style carrots. My  child and I shared a Greek salad, but the pasta, you ask? Well  of course I snitched some of hers! Prontos' child's menu is a  real delight for small appetites and unusually hungry moms.  To our delight we discovered that Pronto's offers  cheesecake from Audrey's Coffee Service for dessert! Thursday's choice was champagne cheesecake. If you've never tried  one of the many varieties of this luscious dessert, you are  missing the true taste of hedonism.  So give Pronto's a try for lunch, dinner, or your next banquet in either of their two locations. I hear George will be the  head cook in Sechelt and that's something to look forward  to!

February is Apple Month  PARTNERS IN TOURISM^  5WIHSPS3S_35i5  fts&ksas&ff'y  WKmmUm  iiiiwgiMMiiiit  Elphinstone student Tony  Duffy was one of three B.C.  boxers to win gold medals at  last week's Canadian Winter  Games in Sidney, Nova Scotia.  Duffy took the honours in the  Intermediate division, 139  pounds, 19 and under, over  eight contenders in that weight  class.  After winning his first bout  by acclamation, his next victory  came after the referee stopped  the match. Tony over-powered  and out-classed his opponent in  the second round of his second  fight.  The major contest in the  championships came when he  won a hard fought decision over  Jamie Sparks from Ontario.  Sparks was two-time Canadian  Champion and last year was  voted 'Most Promising Boxer'  in his weight division. The  referees   awarded   Duffy   the  bout unanimously, taking him  to the finals.  Duffy won the gold medal  when he out-pointed the contender from Newfoundland,  who had won all his earlier  fights with knock-outs.  Tony Duffy's victory has  won him a place on the Intermediate National Team,  which leaves in April for  Finland and the European  Championship. May will find  the 17 year old heading for East  Germany for the Eastern Block  competition and in July he  heads for the World Games in  Cuba.  There's going to be tough  matches ahead for Tony Duffy  but coach Barry Krangle says  that Tony is mentally and  physically prepared and has  committed himself to the  ultimate goal of competing in  Cuba.

At  some point in watching a soccer  game you will notice a penalty  such as a hand ball or an offside which the referee does not  call. Now most of us think  either the referee didn't see the  foul or he doesn't know the  rules of the game.  ; ��� Sometimes we're correct but  even if we are correct we should  set good examples to the players  and not yell out our disagreement. If the referee did miss a  call explain to the players at the  next practice that it is hard to  see every penalty that happens.  ; Now about giving advantage,  if you see a hand ball or an offside and the referee doesn't call  a penalty it is because in his  mind if he called the penalty the  team that should have taken the  penalty kick would have had  less of a chance to move the ball  down the field toward the opposition's goal.  In the case of an off-side, if a  player is running down the side  line in an off-side position, as  long as he doesn't distract any  of the defending team's players  or get the ball passed to him,  then it gives the defending team  the advantage because in effect  they are only playing a team  with 10 players. The off-side  player can't be in the play  because as soon as he is the  referee will call the off-side.  8 & 9 YEAR OLDS  WLT P  Shop Easy 6 5  2 14  Roberts Creek Legion 1 11 1   3  Elphinstone Recreation 4 6 3 11  Gibsons Building Supplies    12 1 0 24  10 & 11 YEAR OLDS  WL T P  Sechelt lions 5 5 0 10  Sechelt Towing & Salvage     7 3 0 14  John Nickerson 10 1 0 20  Gerry Gaudry 19 0   2  Elphinstone Recreation 3 8 0 6  For more information please call  Carl Chrismas: 885-3379  Tony Pike: 885-2622.   , .

Oll'ert  885-4568  In its third week of operation,  the back-country ski trail and  cabins project for the Mount  Steele area north of Sechelt is  reported ahead of schedule, according to George Smith who  created and promoted the project and is now its manager.  Awarded a $152,621 federal  Job Development grant, the  project is sponsored by the  Tetrahedron Ski Club. Over the  next nine months four log  cabins will be built and 20  kilometers of ski trails cut  through the near wilderness  area accessible via Jackson  Brothers' logging road near  Tuwanek.  A crew of seven began work  on Februay 2, peeling logs and  building cabins at the Sechelt  airport. All of the logs that were  donated by Canfor, cut by  volunteer Ken Sneddon and  hauled to the site at nominal  cost by Jim Malyea, have been  peeled, and four log cabins are  beginning to take shape.  "The reason this thing is succeeding," says Smith, "is  because of real contributions  from a cross section of the community." Over $40,000 has  already been committed in  either outright donations, discounts or contributed labour,  and has come from individuals,  small businesses, corporations  and political bodies.  Some examples in addition to  those of Canfor's, Sneddon's  and Malyea's are: George  Smith's and Wayne Greggain's  time spent last year preparing,  explaining and soliciting support for the project from  everyone who would listen; the  Town of Sechelt's donation of  working space at the airport, ,  and the use of an office and  telephone at their works yard;  the offer by Doug Cameron for  accounting services and bis help  in organizing interim bank  financing (a $20,000 line of  credit from the Royal Bank);  and the Regional District's  donation of logs that have been  cleared along their water works  project in Roberts Creek.  When Ian Harding of Shell  Oil heard of the need for gas for  the chain saws, he brought two  45 gallon drums to the site. Vic  Bonaguro prepared log weight  calculations that were necessary  to estimate helicopter requirements for transporting the  finished, but disassembled  cabins to their sites. Keith  Frampton of Gibsons Building  Supplies is donating the use of  their crane truck and has offered substantial discounts on  materials and supplies. Jackson  Brothers Logging is helping  with maps and has co-ordinated  the use of their logging road for  the project. Equipment has  been donated by the Ministry of  Forests and the Outdoor Recreation Council.  Though the project is off to  an excellent start, help is still  needed if it is to be properly  completed says Smith.  Specifically needed right now  are 40 squares of cedar shakes,  four solid doors, 3/8 inch  tongue and groove plywood and  dimension lumber. Volunteers  will be needed in two weeks to  help peel logs. Project manager  George Smith can be contacted  at 885-5522 or at home,  886-3136.  Members of the Tetrahedron  Ski Club's Cabin/Trail Project  Committee are Bryan Rubin,  Chairman; Wayne Greggain,  TSC President; George Smith,  Project Manager; Vic  Bonaguro, Doug Cameron, Jim  Wilson, Don Fulton, Keith  Besgrove and Brad Benson.  Maryanne's Viewpoint  by Maryanne West  "But there's nothing to do in  Gibsons" (or in Sechelt or  Pender as the case may be), is  the recurring complaint of the  teenager. Not all, of course..  Let's not fall into-the trap of  creating a stereotype. Nor is it a  new complaint, although I suspect it wasn't so common an excuse in the days before electric  heat and supermarket convenience foods, etc., when young  people old enough to help split  wood, cultivate the garden, and  help with the seemingly endless  chores of food preserving and  preparation were economic  assets to their families.  When our kids were growing  up here there wasn't all the  sports facilities we have now on  the Coast - no swimming pool,  no arena, no curling, no tennis  courts, and little league and  most organized sports were just  for boys, but all these facilities  do not seem to have changed  the overall picture.  The implication is, of course,  that if only one lived in Vancouver where, there is so much  going on there just wouldn't be  this problem. This I suspect is a  classic illustration of the old  saying that "the grass always  looks greener on the other side  of the fence" and that Vancouver teens sing the same sad  song.  Is it perhaps an integral part  of growing up, an "I want, I  don't know what I want" sort  of syndrome, or are there real  needs which the community  could meet for our young people? This topic will be discussed  on Thursday this week on Community Television (Channel 11)  at about 8:30 pm by a panel of  two adults and two students,  one from Elphinstone and one  from Chatelech. A telephone  hookup will be available so that  teens may take part in the  discussions. Your views and  especially your constructive  ideas will be welcomed.  Everyone isn't into sports.  Would a teen centre with space  for hobbies and a place to meet  friends, listen to music, talk,  etc., be one answer to "there's  nothing to do?" Would you be  willing to work on a committee  to organize such a centre,  and/or to raise money? What  ideas do you have as to how  such a centre could avoid contributing to the misuse of  alcohol or drugs?  What about a safe place (if  that isn't a contradiction in  terms!) for skate boarding? Do  you think facilities for teens  should be provided by the community through the schools, or  by the councils, or by the teens  themselves?  Is the lack of community  transportation a contributing  factor?  This discussion is intended to  investigate the need, if any, and  then we can go on to explore  ways and means. It will depend  on your participation.  HIGH RETURN BUSINESS INVESTMENT  Join North America's fastest growing industry - Alarm sales,  with over 350 offices established in North America.

The Sunshine Coast is now  the new home of a small herd of  elk and Conservation Officer  Jamie Stephens hopes that the  public will "take an active roll  in preserving and protecting the  herd."  Three cows, three calves, and  one 700 pound bull arrived last  Wednesday from a location just  north of Campbell River.  The animals were lured into a  corral trap by alfalfa hay which  had been placed there by  volunteers from the Courtenay  and District Fish and Game  Protection Association, who  manned and monitored the  trap. Funding for the transplant  project was received from the  Habitat Conservation Fund  which gets its money from hunting licence fees.  Stephens said that he hopes  to liberate as many as 20 elk in  the area, but that will depend on  whether or not more elk are  lured into the trap before the  herds move to higher elevations.  "We really lucked out this  time," he told the Coast News.  "Out of the seven animals that  we just released, five are female  and two are male. We hope that  the three adult cows are pregnant."  However, he warned that the  entire project could fail if the  mature bull in the herd "ends  up in someone's freezer." No  elk hunting will be permitted  until the herd reaches at least 50  animals.

At a council meeting in  January, Mayor Bud Koch  stated that if the grant didn't  come through, the assets would  not be purchased and the Sunshine Coast Tourism Association would be charged storage  fees.  Later in last week's meeting,  council voted to approve an application by Aquarius Seafarms  to reduce the foreshore lease  size at their hatchery in Porpoise Bay.  Alderman Anne Langdon  told the meeting that by coincidence she was out at the hatchery site last week.  Langdon works for Master  Marine Limited, which services  the aquaculture industry. She  was taken on a tour of the facility by Mrs. Kraft, wife of the  company's president, and was  very impressed with what she  saw.  The effluent pipe, she told  council, goes out 200 feet into  the bay and the water was very  clean.  Police  GIBSONS RCMP  A resident of Thompson  Road, Langdale, was convicted  under Section 35 of the Liquor  Control and Licencing Act.  (Permit minors to consume liquor in an establishment under  his control.) The charge arose  from a house party that got out  of control in September, 1986.  Numerous young persons were  in attendance, with a number  consuming alcohol.  The Provincial Court Judge  imposed a $200 fine; sayingthat '  this behaviour is unacceptable,  and the fine was to serve as a  deterrent.

Coast News, February 23,1987  Enforcement  mprove<  Armed with new province-  wide changes in law enforcement procedures, police officers  now have the authority to issue  on-the-spot tickets for offences  against a variety of provincial  acts, including Motor Vehicle,  Liquor Control, Litter, Fisheries, Wildlife, Firearms, Commercial Transport, and Licencing.  Offences such as speeding,  disturbing the peace, or consuming liquor in a public place  can now be dealt with under a  new process termed 'Deemed  Conviction'. This means that if  a ticketed offender does not appear to contest the action on the  court date, usually two weeks  after the ticket is issued, the offender will automatically be  considered guilty of the offence,  or deemed convicted. The process does allow a subsequent 30  day period to appeal the conviction and set a hearing date.  Offenders have the option of  paying a uniformly set penalty,  called a 'Voluntary' penalty on  or before the court date. In the  case of Motor Vehicle related  offences, those who have not  paid their penalty will not be  able to have their driver's  licences renewed until they do.  Unpaid penalties for violations  Attack  shakes  Shaske  by Penny Fuller  John Shaske, chairman of the  regional district's Transportation Committee, offered to  resign last week if the committee felt he should. The offer  came as a result of a column run  in a local paper which slammed  Shaske's handling of the recent  ferry fare increases.  Shaske told the meeting that  wrongful accusations in the column stating that he used MLA  Harold Long as a 'scapegoat'  could jeopardize future negotiations with Long about ferry service to the Sunshine Coast. He  suggested that either the committee send a letter to Mr. Long  clearing up the issue or he could  resign, whichever they thought  best.  Gordon Wilson's suggestion  that he "consider the source"  was countered with the point  that Harold Long may not be  familiar with local individual  journalists and might give some  credit to the column.  The committee agreed  unanimously that Shaske retain  his chairmanship and will send a  letter to Harold Long clarifying  the issue.  Sechelt  withdraws  support  The Sechelt District Council  voted last week to withdraw  their support of the Sunshine  Coast Regional District's  (SCRD) motion which will be  presented to the meeting of the  Association of Vancouver  Island Municipalities (AVIM)  next month.  The motion calls for the  reinstatement of the moratorium on new fish farm leases until environmental impact studies  have been done. The SCRD  hopes to have the powerful  backing of the association in  presenting their request to the  provincial government.  When the motion was  presented at the last regular  meeting of the regional board,  Sechelt's representative, Joyce  Kolibas was part of the  unanimous vote in support of  presenting it at the AVIM  meeting. However, when  Kolibas reported back to council last Wednesday, Alderman  Anne Langdon voiced strenuous objections to the motion.  She pointed out that in the  presentation that she had made  to the Gillespie Inquiry on  behalf of the Sechelt council,  the concluding paragraph stated  that Sechelt District Municipality was in "a good position to  welcome and assist new fin fish  farms." The resolution, she  stated, contradicted that assertion.  Alderman Kolibas assured  council that she believed the  SCRD supported aquaculture  but wanted the moratorium in  place until the technical studies  are done.  Council voted to notify the  district that they were opposed  to the motion going to the  AVIM meeting.  to other provincial statutes will  be collected through civil proceedings.  According to Gibsons RCMP  Sergeant Jim Bessant, the advantages of the new system are  the considerable savings in time  and costs over the old process of  issuing bench warrants after an  investigation, and most importantly, now the crime and penalty are more closely linked, thus  acting as a greater deterant.  These measures were welcomed by Gibsons Alderman  Bob Maxwell who, in his report  to council last week, said, "It's  very heartening to see some of  the disturbing influences that  happen in our community coming under control."  However, public support is  still needed. In order to prosecute offences such as noisy  parties, a simple ticket is not  enough. Cases of this nature,  according to Sergeant Bessant,  need a complainant willing to  act as a witness in court.  Some of the Voluntary  penalties are:  Liquor Control and Licencing Act: Purchase of liquor by a  minor, $100; Consumption of  liquor by a minor, $100; Minor  in a liquor establishment, $100;  Minor in of possession of liquor, $50; Consumtion of liquor in a public place, $100.  Motor Vehicle Act: No insurance, $300; No driver's  licence, $100; Failure to produce a driver's licence, $50;  Speeding, $75; Failure to stop  for a stop sign, $75.  &��   The  BUSHWHACKER  Brush Clearing  & Removal  885-7421  Please Leave Message  ...when you renew your  AUTO INSURANCE  You are cordially in  vited   to   view  our  display of paintings  by local artists.  1  AUTOPLAN REMINDER  Please be sure that the use of your  vehicle is'correctly noted on your Certificate of Insurance.
