 Legislative library  Parliament Buildings  Victoria, BC V8V 1X4  87.6  World-famous Gibsons harbour, which has regularly appeared on TV screens all over the world in the  last 15 years, was serenely beautiful last week awaiting the arrival of the CBC TV crew for the upcoming  season of the Beachcombers program.  ���Kent Sheridan photo  The Sunshine  Published on the Sunshine Coast      25* per copy on news' stands   March 2,1987 Volume41  Issue 9  Tom Paul wins close election  Sechelts elect new Chief  A happy Chief-elect, Tom Paul, gets a hug and a smile from his  daughter, Dionne, after he was officially declared Chief last Saturday night. ���Kent Sheridan photo  Negotiations proceeding on  In an upset victory in the  Sechelt Indian Band elections,  on Saturday, February 28,  Thomas Paul was elected Chief  of the Sechelt Indian District  Government.  It was a close race, the final  ballot count was 109 to 99 in  favour of Paul and at approximately 10:45 pm, the electoral  officer declared him the newly  elected Chief. A spontaneous  roar of applause errupted from  band members, who had been  waiting for the official results.  The hallway outside of the  band council boardroom was  filled with an anxious, optimistic crowd while the first  ballot count was being taken,  followed immediately by a recount with the same results.  The four elected Councillors  for the Indian Band are: Incumbents Lloyd Evan Jeffries,  127 votes; Warren Henry Paull,  108 votes; Benedict Pierre, 90  votes; and the council will nave  one   new   councillor,   Lenora  Jean Julius receiving 80 votes.  There were 213 out of 232  elegible votes cast,  with five  .: spoiled ballots.  The first words of the newly  ; elected Chief were, "I've got the  '-. mandate of the people."  ���     He told the people, "Our first  job is to sit down with Council  * and get ready for negotiations  with the provincial government  next week. All through next  week we'll be meeting with their  : representatives to determine the  -Sechelt Indian District Government's tax structure."  '��   These   negotiations   will  w^itablish  the   Band's  control  over funds for education, social  assistance,   medical   coverage  and capital expenditures. The  Sechelt Indian District government is a legal entity under  federal legislation passed last  year and will be considered a  quasi-municipal government by  the provincial legislature.  Paul took over the reins of  Chiefdom yesterday. As well as  meeting with the provincial  negotiating committee this  week, Paul will be having this  year's budget of 1.3 million  dollars ratified at a band  meeting on Thursday.  On March 16 he will be off to  Ottawa, new budget in hand, to  finalize federal legislation which  will ensure the annual deposit of  funds into the band's bank account on April 1 of each year,  regardless of the party in power.  Before leaving the Administration Building where the  votes were counted, Paul told  the gathering, "I'll have an  open door policy for all band  members. The Council will  always be here for them' and I  want a closer relationship with  the band membership."  Returning home to greet approximately 75 friends and supporters, Chief Tom Paul thanked them for their support from  "the bottom of my heart.".  MLA Long visits  his constituents  Gibsons Wharf administration  by Kent Sheridan  ;.; In a telephone interview with  Harry Brooks, Operations Officer for Small Crafts and Harbours, the Coast News received  information concerning the  management take-over of the  Gibsons wharf.  According to Mr. Brooks,  ''Negotiations arc proceeding  favourably, although nothing as  yet is solidified."  . At a meeting last Thursday  between the Gibsons local of the  UFAWU and representatives  from Small Crafts and Harbours, details of the possible  take-over of the wharf's lease  were discussed.  ; "The hiring of a wharfinger  would be the responsibility of  the lease holders, potentially a  fishermen's union management  committee.  Small  Crafts and  Harbours would then be able to  ���appoint the wharfinger as an enforcement  officer,  under the  Small Crafts and Harbours Act.  C; "The   wharfinger   would  report on his activities to the  lease holders and in turn they  would advise and direct him in  respect to his duties.  ;S "The lease holders and the  owharfinger would both have to  abide by the Small Craft and  Harbours   Act   and   a   coordinated   operational   policy  jiwould have to be set up between  ;all parties involved, Small Craft  and Harbours, the lease holders  and the wharfinger.  '":" "The lease holders would be  responsible for the wharfinger's  pay structure. This could be  done either by salary or on a  commission basis," explained  Mr. Brooks.  'f' If at any time difficulties arise  between the wharfinger and the  lease holders, the wharfinger  would be able to appeal to  Small Crafts and Harbours,  who would then act as arbitrators in the situation.  The overall responsibility for  structural changes and maintenance for the wharf would  rest with Small Crafts and Harbours.  A recent survey by that  department estimates that there  is an anticipated potential of  $30,000 in annual revenue for  Gibsons   wharf   from   service  charges or wharfage fees.  Mr. Brooks says, "The lease  holders would be required to  pay 15 per cent of the annual  revenue to Small Crafts and  Harbours," a branch of the  Ministry of Fisheries and  Oceans.  The main concern of the  discussions on Thursday, was  the issue of responsibility for  the wharfinger's liability insurance.  Mr. Brooks also commented  on the possibility of the  Ministry of Fisheries and  Oceans assuming responsibility  for the main dock-head.  "Negotiations with the  Ministry of Transport (MOT)  are going very well. Both parties  agree that the whole wharf  structure should fall under one  ministry," said Mr. Brooks.  The MOT has also promised  to upgrade facilities on the main  dock-head including running a  new water main on the wharf  for better fire protection.  Harold Long, the new MLA  for Comox-Powell River was  busy last week visiting various  groups on the Sunshine Coast as  he made himself available to  hear his constituents' concerns.  Long is the first Social Credit  MLA to represent this area  since Isabel Dawson was elected  15 years ago and is the first  MLA from this area to sit with  the party in power since NDP  leader Dave Barret was premier.  Included in last week's itinerary was a talk before a joint  dinner meeting of the Chambers  of Commerce of Gibsons and  Sechelt.  After presenting his plans for  improving conditions on the  Sunshine Coast which included  health care, highways and  aquaculture, he was met with a  barrage of speakers who tried to  convince  him  that  improved  ferry service should be included  on his priority list.  Chamber members speaking  on the ferry issue were Gibsons  Mayor Diane Strom, engineer  Doug Roy, lawyer and ex-  regional board director Russell  Crum, insurance man Arnie  Tveit-Pettersen, realtor and ex-  regional board director Jon  McRae, and Gibsons Chamber  director Pat Tripp.  Reinstating the 10:30 am  winter sailing and a late night  sailing were discussed at length.  Also mentioned was the desire  for a commuter run for passengers only.  Long's response was to say  that he would try to get the  10:30 am sailing back for three  days a week during the winter  months, but that the late night  Please turn to page 8  For Community Futures efforts  Collins and Skelly earn thanks  MP's Ray Skelly and Mary  Collins were the guests of  honour at a Community Futures Luncheon last Thursday.  The Sunshine Coast Regional  District (SCRD) hosted the affair which served the duel purpose of thanking the two  representatives who assisted in  gaining this area Canada  Futures status and introducing'  the recently appointed project  consultant, Dennis Cherenko to  the community.  SCRD Chairman Jim Gur-  ney's opening remarks set the  tone of the luncheon which  found everyone speaking optimistically of the economic  future on the Sunshine Coast  and exchanging congratulations  on the combined effort exhibited in acquiring the designation.  The final speaker was Dennis  Cherenko who addressed the  more practical issues of how the  project would proceed. During  the next month or two, his job  will be to come up with a list of  12 people to sit on a voting  committee which will determine  the priorities of the project and  the implementation strategies to  be used.  He listed the options available to Canada Futures com  munities and told the group  "My job is to help you and keep  you on track. From the work  that you've done so far, I'd say  this is sort of like having a  thoroughbred race horse,  you've got to let it run."  Fish plant reprieve  At the meeting of the regional board last week, directors  voted to table a recommendation by the planning committee  on an application by Aquarius Seafarms to rezone a parcel of  land to permit the building of a fish processing plant.  The committee had recommended that the rezoning be  denied, but Area A Director Gordon Wilson moved that the  issue, "be tabled for two weeks and invite the applicant to  provide information on how they can meet the objections expressed at the public hearing."  Business Women meet  The newly forming Business and Professional Women's  Club in Gibsons will be holding their first dinner meeting  Thursday, March 5 at the Mariner Restaurant. Beverly Merrill, personal financial planner with Investors will be guest  speaker. Phone Jay at 886-7319 for reservations.  MLA H arold Long on the Coast last week.  -Teri Dawe photo 2.  r  Coast News, March 2,1987  The way ahead  Congratulations to newly-elected Chief Tom Paul of the  Sechelt People and to his elected band councillors. There  are important deliberations still ahead for the Sechelt People in their historic achievement of independence and all  people of good will wish for the new chief and his councillors calm deliberations and good advice as they proceed  along their chosen path.  Former chief Stan Dixon deserves much credit for his  stewardship of the Sechelts' affairs to this point. No one  could have worked harder or cared more for his people's  good than did the former chief.  We have no doubt that when the emotions of the electoral contest recede the value of the contribution made by  the defeated candidate for chief in the recent election will  be generally recognized and the Sechelt Band will be  enriched by the experience gained along the way to independence and will go forward together to meet the next  challenges.  The Cruise missile  As a 'glamour' peace issue the Cruise missile has slipped  into second place these days behind the proposed 'Star  Wars' or Strategic Defence Initiative.  Nonetheless it seems appropriate to express regret about  the renewed role of Canada in the testing of the Cruise.  Unlike SDI, the Cruise has no defensive pretensions. It is  designed as a first-strike offensive system to deliver nuclear  weapons to the heart of the Soviet Union.  Canada is the ideal terrain for its testing because,  specifically, of its similarity to the terrain of our other  giant neighbour. The participation of this country in the  development of such a weapon is an act of international  hostility in itself. The suspicion that it is taking place in a  misguided attempt to curry economic favour with the USA  is an indication of the moral torpor which afflicts the present federal government.  Still doing it  We have earned the ire of Alderman Langdon of the  Sechelt Council by pointing out in the past that she was in  conflict of interest in speaking against the regional  economic development commission whilst associated with  Oddvin Vedo who was lobbying for his own development  company.  Now, still associated with Vedo in a company which services local aquaculture, we find Langdon a strenuous participant in debates at council concerning that industry.  It is apparent that Langdon either doesn't understand or  doesn't care that such participation is direct conflict of interest. That being the case, the mayor of Sechelt should indicate his understanding of appropriate aldermanic  behaviour by reining in his opinionated alderman on this  topic.  5 YEARS AGO  A search and rescue operation began late Saturday  night when three men were reported missing on a boat  trip from Vancouver. The men arrived in Pender Harbour  Sunday morning, safe and sound, having spent the  night in a cabin on Agamemnon Channel.  The total cost of the six hour search came to more  than $35,000. A spokesman at the Rescue Co-ordination  Centre in Victoria told the Coast News that boaters  should be filing "float plans" before making voyages of  this nature.  10 YEARS AGO  A malfunction in the fuel system forced a wheeled aircraft to land in the harbour at Madeira Park on Saturday,  February 26. The three occupants, two adult males and  a four year old girl were rescued unharmed.  20 YEARS AGO  Sunshine Coast real estate. Gibsons -19 acres treed  and level with over 600 feet road frontage. Excellent investment buy at full price $4500. Roberts Creek - Two  houses on large view lot with year-round creek, only 200  feet to safe beach. Full price $7500. Sargeants Bay  -Waterfront lot in hot fishing area with 90 feet frontage  on beach. Full price $3900. Pender Harbour - Fully serviced beautifully treed waterfront properties in this  scenic year-round boating and fishing paradise. Priced  from $1500 to $3250 with easy terms.  30 YEARS AGO  A joint Sechelt/Gibsons Municipal Airport is a prospect for the Sunshine Coast and it has reached the  point where the federal department in charge of air service is interested.  It is planned for the area inland from Wilson Creek  and will be about one and a half miles from the Sechelt  Highway. This would put it approximately seven miles  from Sechelt, five miles from Roberts Creek, 13 miles  from Gibsons and 21 miles from Port Mellon.  40 YEARS AGO  Gibsons Landing mil rate has been cut in half, from  20 to 10 mils, following an increase in assessments.  Land is taxed at 100 per cent of assessed value and  improvements at 50 per cent.  The Sunshine  Publisher & Managing Editor Co-Publisher  John Burnside M.M.

Ferry's MV Queen of Cowichan,  photographed during one of her scheduled 9.7 mile trips from  Langdale to Horseshoe Bay. The double-ended ferry was built by  Yarrows Shipyard in 1976. She is 457 feet in over-all length and 89  feet at her widest point. Her gross tonnage is 6551.18 and she draws  17 Vi feet of water. The Queen of Cowichan is powered by two  M.A.K. V-12 engines that develop up to 11,840 horsepower, which  drives a single shaft and propeller on each end of the ship. There  Maryanne's Viewpoint  are bow-lhrusters on both ends of the vessel that are used for  manoeuvering, and, her service speed is 19 knots; maximum speed  is 22.14 knots. Captain Ian MacKinnon is in command on this trip  and is ultimately responsible for the safe running of the ship. The  ferry can carry up to 360 cars and 1440 passengers including the  ship's crew. There are between 21 and 26 men and women who man  the ship, depending on passenger licensing requirements.  ���Kent Sheridan photo  Capital punishment a backward step  by Maryanne West  There are two issues in the  capital punishment debate  which I feel do not get enough  attention. We spend too much  time and energy arguing the  pros and cons of statistics.  Quite apart from the view that  returning to a system which includes capital punishment is a  backward step for a country  which prides itself on being  civilized and humanitarian,  capital punishment is a cop out.  If our society really is becoming increasingly violent, and I'm  not sure that this is the case,  even though it does appear to be  so if one judges life by the  television news, I would also,,  suspect that Hollywood's escalating realism in shoot 'em up  movies contributes to the  hardening of our sensitivity, encouraging the belief that might  is right.  Let's, however, agree for this  discussion that our society has  become more violent and we no  longer feel secure, that our  streets are not safe. It's natural  enough and understandable to  react against the perpetrators of  that violence but surely in so doing are we not dealing only with  the  effect   and  ignoring   the  cause?  May this not be the reason  for the problem, that we have  been guilty in failing to deal  with the causes, just because it is  far easier to get governments to  deal with the most obvious effects? It's a little like cutting  back those pesky blackberry  vines which invade the path, it  really does no good unless you  get the roots out. What we are  trying to put off by the return of  the noose is dealing with the  causes of violence in society,  because that will entail a great  deal of committment from us  all, and do we really want to be  bothered?  The other argument I don't  buy is that we can't afford to.-,  keep people in custody for life if  necessary. This is a scary argument. So today it's those who  commit murder, something no  one does in their right mind, but'  how about tomorrow? How  many more of us will become  too expensive for society to deal  with, the disabled, or the old, or  the unemployed?  The expense though is  something we can and should  do something about. Our penal  system is obviously outdated  and not serving the purpose for  which it was intended. We need  a more flexible system, geared  to the needs of both the criminal  and the victim, one in which  those who commit crimes  against society can make worthwhile reparations and can  repay their debt while earning  their self respect.  There will always be some  people for whom incarceration  is necessary, but these should be  relatively few and prison communities should work to be self  supporting within their own  confines, thereby reducing the  cost considerably.  The level of our civilization  will be judged by history and  measured by how we treat the  disadvantaged and nonconformists in our midst.  Into My Own  One of my wishes is that those dark trees,  So old and firm they scarcely show the breeze,  Were not, as 'twere, the merest mask of gloom,  But stretched away unto the edge of doom.  I should not be withheld but that some day  Into their vastness I should steal away,  Fearless of ever finding open land,  Or highway where the slow wheel pours the sand.  I do not see why I should e'er turn back,  Or those should not set forth upon my track  To overtake me, who should miss me here  And long to know if still I held them dear.  They would not find me changed from him they knew���  Only more sure of all I thought was true.

I  Coast Lines  A brief and unfilling career  by Nancy McLarty  Before I get to the 'root' of  my column on dentists this  week, I must right a wrong  from my first piece on Septic  Tanks. The gentleman who  recommended yeast as a means  of keeping your septic tank in  good working order was Ray  Wilkinson, not 'Tom Wilkinson'. My apologies to Ray  Wilkinson and I hope that my  making public his advice on the  use of yeast doesn't cut down  on his livelihood. Ray owns  AAA Peninsula Septic Tank  Service.  Now, to Dentists, a subject  that to some of you may be as  unpleasant as septic tanks.  My very first job was working for two dentists in Ottawa.  A father and son team they  were. This was before the days  of Dental Hygienists and so my  job was to take care of the accounts, make appointments and  keep the younger patients in the  waiting room happy. No easy  task with the sounds of drilling  and groaning coming from  behind the closed doors.  Those were the days when all  of the dentist's tools of the trade  were in full view of the patient  and the most familiar word used  was "spit". Nowadays, you  don't even see the drill and the  modern dentist has a compact  little shop vac that he uses to  suction out your mouth, and  pain is almost a thing of the  past.  After a few months, I was entrusted to the sterilizing of instruments and the mixing of  amalgam. For those of you unfamiliar with amalgam, it was a  combination of powdered silver  and mercury that was spun  together in a machine to make  fillings.  I really liked that part of the  job because as a child I had  been a 'mercury freak', purposely breaking my mother's  thermometers so I could play  with the quicksilver inside. (I'll  probably die of mercury poisoning.)  I also helped mix up the  'Jeltrate' that people bit into to  make impressions for plaster  casts of their teeth. The dentists  I worked for made their own  dentures and partial plates and  so they had a terrific assortment  of teeth in little drawers. All in  all, I enjoyed the job, and  everything went well until my  dentists went away for a week-  long convention.  The office remained open  with me in charge to make appointments and receive  payments. But after a few days,  boredom set in. The phone  would only ring about 10 times  each day and not too many people arrived to pay their bills.  So I decided to make better  use of my time by trying out  some of my newly learned skills  in the field of dentistry.  I began by making an impression of my own teeth. Have you  ever tried to answer a phone  with a mouth full of Jeltrate?  Difficult to say the least, but the  impression came out fine. So  far, so good.  Now to try out my limited expertise on the drill. After all,  there were all those different  teeth in those little drawers to  practice on. I had never used the  drill before, but having watched  the dentists so many times, I felt  fairly qualified.  Now, this was an old fashioned type of drill. You know, the  kind with the vibrating wires  that ran the length of the long,  folding arm. It operated with a  foot pedal and you inserted different little 'burrs' into the  business end.  I guess I either pressed too  hard or used the wrong kind of  burr, because all I ended up  with was a lot of split and  broken plastic teeth. But, after  all, I was just learning.  However, one thing I thought  I could do right was to give my  teeth a good brushing, or 'prophylaxis' as the professionals  say. I got out one of the  brushes, applied a big dab of  the flavoured pumice that served as professional toothpaste  and fit it on the end of the drill.  This was more like it! I did a  terrific job on my front teeth  and was just beginning on the  molars when the phone rang.  Now, at that time, I had long  hair and somehow, as I reached  for the phone, it got caught in  the vibrating wires. I immediately took my foot off the  pedal and the drill stopped, but  not before my hair was hopelessly tangled in the machine.  What to do? I tried reaching  the phone, but the drill arm to  which my head was attached  wouldn't reach that far.  Just then, someone entered  the outer office and rang the  bell! I decided that discretion  was the better part of valour at  this point so I just kept quiet.  Maybe they would go away.  After a few minutes they did  and the phone had stopped  ringing, but I was still attached  to the drill.  I tried my best to disengage  my hair, but it just seemed to  get worse, so at this point I  realized that the only answer  was surgery. Luckily, there was  a pair of scissors in one of the  drawers within my reach and,  with much trepidation, I chopped out the tangled pieces, just  missing the drill wires.  The rest of the day was spent  trying to extricate the tell-tale  chunks of hair from the drill.  After all, this was a dental of-  n fice and not a barber shop.  What would my bosses say if  they found hair clippings in  their instruments?  That done, I looked in the  mirror (one of the ones they  stick in your mouth), and saw  that I had a large, bald spot on  the left side of my head. Not a  pretty sight!  When the dentists returned  on Monday they asked if all had  gone well and complimented me  on my new and much shorter  hair style. I held my breath until  the drill in question had been  used and proved to be in good  working order. Apparently I  had not damaged it and had  covered my tracks as far as telltale hairs were concerned,  because nothing more was ever  mentioned.  Shortly afterwards, however, :  I decided that my career in the :  field of dentistry was over and I :  tendered my resignation. I had ;  found a job at the Metropolitan ;  Life Insurance Company as a ;  claim calculator, but that's'.-  another column. 4  Coast News, March 2,1987  3.  Value & Quality  A reader expresses appreciation  Editor:  I have been wanting to write  to you for many months to tell  you how much I think of your  paper. We've been living here  nearly four years now and I  think it's one of the best papers,  of any size, that I've read.  Here are some of the things I  like about it, not in any special  order:  1. The Format - Photos.  2. The poems on the Editorial  page. Quite often I cut these  out, put them in one of my  poetry books and re-read them  from time to time. I especially  liked The Boy at the Window by  Richard Wilbur, and Faces in  by Whitman.  3. I love the little black and  white illustrations that crop up  throughout the ads. They seem  to me to be much nicer than the  run of the mill things you usually see.  4. I like the Letters to the  Editor, they're usually interesting, lively and topical.  5. I like the editorials and the  articles by local writers. You  seem to attract good, intelligent  writing.  6. I appreciate the recipe col  umn in the KLD ads. Also the  fair coverage given to all the  areas of the Coast.  7. A critical reader must also  be aware of the dignity and  coolness with which the Coast  News has conducted itself in the  recent B.C. Press dispute. I'm  appalled at the abysmal pettiness and malice, to say  nothing of the lack of intelligence, of the "other side".  (PS I have no personal  knowledge of any of the participants.)  It seems there must be  serpents in every Eden, what a  shame to turn a beauty spot like  the Coast into an arena of personal spitefulness. Perhaps its  human nature. I don't know,  I've seen it crop up in many  areas, Church groups, choirs,  teachers' associations, you  name it, but especially in  political groups, perhaps it's a  function of human relationships? .  For some reason, all the time  I was reading it, the play  Abraham Lincoln by Drink-  water, came into my mind and  kept recurring, so I'm enclosing  a few pages from one of my old  textbooks.  I do think I should take you  to task for the increasing frequency of the typographical errors. (God forbid they should  be spelling mistakes!) in the  paper. Loved Nancy McLarty's  column!  Nina Smith  Long 'skirts the issue'  Editor's note: the following was  received for publication.  R.W. Long  B.C. Ferry Corporation  112 Fort Street  Victoria BC V8V 4V2  Dear Sir:  Further to my letter of  January 8 and your reply dated  January 23 with regard to a  10:30 am sailing from Langdale  to Horseshoe Bay. I would be  inclined   to   say   your   reply  "skirts the issue".  Where else in B.C. can you  tpll me, is a major highway  blocked off because of costs?  Does your highways department  cease to plough snow on the  Hope-Princeton or the new Coquihalla because it is too expensive? Do they leave a rock slide  on the Squamish Highway  because it is too expensive to  clear?  You can watch costs all you  wish and the issue is not resolved, you are still blocking  Highway 101 for four hours  which is not excuseable because  of costs.  Certainly with the increase in  fares just announced you will  reconsider this absurd situation  and reinstate the service that we  on the Sunshine Coast are paying for.  L.W.

On March 27, we hopefully  plan to just have the immediate  family and our parents' closest,  friends.  On behalf of my brother  Leonard and with my whole  heart I wish to thank each and  every one who have touched the  lives of our parents with kindness and love. God bless you all.  Don Wm. Brown  Coalition  invites  interest  Editor:  The Sunshine Coast Guard  Coalition has elected a council  to run the business of the  organization and is at present  undertaking a coast-wide membership campaign. The coalition  is apolitical and the members,  many of them from off the Sunshine Coast, represent the interests of very diverse groups.  In the near future the coalition will produce a newsletter in  order to release the results of the  extensive research that is now  underway.  While the coalition acknowledges that many Sunshine  Coast companies and small  businesses stand to benefit from  the aquaculture industry in the  short term, our concern is with  the long term costs for those  benefits. The coalition also  acknowledges that there are  many threats posed to the  fragile ecosystem of the  foreshore and to this end have  as our aim to protect and  preserve the foreshore.  Those interested in the coalition may write to Box 1189,  Sechelt, VON 3A0.  B.C.

MESSAGE FROM MINISTER  A Remembrance Day  editorial written by Peter  Pihichyn, editor of the Sechelt  Legion Lest We Forget paper  came to the attention of the  Minister of Veterans Affairs,  George Hees.  The minister replied with a  letter of congratulations to  Peter and a letter of thanks to  Bernie Ackerman for sending a  copy of the publication.  Peter is a professional journalist and although he retired as  editor of the magazine two  years ago, he occasionally puts  in an article as he did for  November 11.  SECHELT LIBRARY  The annual meeting of the  Sechelt Public Library was held  at the Sechelt Municipal HalKpn  Tuesday, February 24.       fy  President Art McPhee spoke  on the great job the Sechelt  Aquaculture Ass'n  expresses indignation  The Sunshine Coast Aquaculture Association is indignant  at the appointment of Gordon  Wilson as the Sunshine Coast  Regional District (SCRD)  representative to the B.C. Coast  Guard Coalition.  In a letter  >%'  _  _��?;r_  Apt****'-  epvtW  *#**  tuf^1  received from the association at  last week's meeting of the  SCRD, president Syd Heal  wrote "we find it hard to  understand why the board  would dignify this group with  what can be interpreted at best  as quasi-approval."  Heal suggested that the board  visit some of the farms in the  area on a consistent basis and  extended an invitation to Director Wilson and others to attend  the next meeting of the association and even to take out an  honourary membership.  Gordon Wilson told the  board that he would like to accept the invitation, adding that  he wanted to clarify the issue.  "One thing ought to be  clarified. I do not recall at any  time the SCRD taking out a  membership in the B.C. Coast  Guard Coalition, nor have I  personally taken out a membership. Many of the people in my  constituency belong to the coalition and I spend a great deal of  time as their elected representative dealing with their concerns."  The board not only agreed  that Wilson should attend the  next Aquaculture Association  meeting, but Chairman Jim  Gurney also agreed to go.

V4K 1W7, to amend the licence for the broadcasting receiving undertaking serving Gibsons and Sechelt, by adding the following conditions of licence: a) relieving it  of the requirement to distribute CBUFT Vancouver on the basic band; and b) allowing it to  distribute the CBC French Language Service on a non-discretionary basis on the basic service.

Interventions must be filed with the Secretary General, CRTC, Ottawa, Ont. K1A 0N2, with  proof that a copy has been served on the applicant on or before 27 March 1987.

Canada  Garden Club has done in landscaping the garden in front of  the building and how the library  has a desire for excellence and is  striving for public satisfaction.  Sechelt owns the land and the  library owns the building. The  district municipality will not  take over the library until the  population reaches 5000 but  council has provided the use of  a computer.  A part time clerk was hired in  January of this year and this is  seen as a great help for the  volunteers who last year put in  2603 hours.  The library has a total of  10,090 volumes on hand and  had a circulation last year of  24,554 books.  A request from the members  that a memorial fund be set up  in memory of Ada Dawe, who  was a strong supporter of the  library since its conception, will  be considered by the board.  Election of officers saw Art  McPhee, Ken Moore and  Marianne Dallman re-elected  for a two year term, plus the addition of Mrs. Helen Cuylitz,  the head of the Wilson Creek  Reading Room.  Art McPhee will head the  board with Frances Fleming as  Vice-President; Jan DeBruyn as  Secretary; John Johnson,  Treasurer. Graham Craig is the  Sechelt representative and  Peggy Connor represents the  SCRD. The head librarian is  Marie Montgomery..

Every faculty and department, their announcement says,  will play a part in this spectacular show.  ':;���'.  Stargaze  through  the  telescope,   study  a  wheel  which  -depicts the night sky for any  given night. Hunt for gold in a  sluice box set up by the Department of Geology. If no luck at  the sluice box, view the largest  collection of natural gems in the  province. The Faculty of  Forestry will, give away tree  seedlings, demonstrate scaling,  and show how tree disease is  detected by means of satellite  pictures.

One method  would be to get the Ministry of  Highways to make a transfer of  payments to the Ferry Corporation equivalent to the cost of a  highway between Langdale and  Horseshoe Bay. Another is to  explore the possibility of having  Highways purchase the ferry  terminals and by leasing them  back, help to reduce operating  costs.

Some  notable examples in that context  are Hellen McConnachie's  'Flood Waters', a collage whose  control of colour is reminiscent  of a mature Pollack.  In 'Shallows', Verity Purdy's  treatment of colour and space  evokes the mystical quality of a  Sung scroll painting.  Joan Marshall's etching is a  bold and graphic statement,  while Trudy Small's works offer  yet another aspect of her infinite  capacity to create.  Donna Shugar's 'Mask Series' . explores. a new photographic technique, cyanotype,  *- to * produce*^ unique images.  Despite their vastly different approaches Belinda Macleod's  'England' and Maurice Spira's  'Skyscraper' share an element  of whimsy and lively fun.  Special mention should be  made of the beautiful and  technically competent treatment  done by Ursula Fritsch, Hazel  Coxall, Althea Rowe and Joan  Warn.  There is something for  everyone in this show and some  outstanding values too. The exhibit ends March 8.  Dream yourself back to 1873.  Ascend in a balloon and gaze  down on the two-pronged peninsula that lies like the uplifted  head of an aloof moose between  Burrard Inlet and the Fraser  River. The predominant colour  is still green, a great sprawl of  trees, broken only by small patches of logging slash and the  brown worms of skidroads winding to a few camp sites and  saw mills around the periphery.  The Indian village of Mus-  queam blending more naturally  into the landscape, is not as  easily discerned. The ships at  anchor in the raw harbour are  primarily three masted sailing  vessels. Canoes and primitive  steam tugs move among them.  The only settlement of any consequence lies further up the  Fraser at New Westminster. The  rest is country not yet conquered.  The germ of Vancouver lies  in the shanties and saloons of  Gastown, between Spratt's  Oilery and Hastings' Saw Mill,  where garrulous Jack Deighton  holds sway. It lies also in the  rough and ready logging camps  of pioneer timberman, Jeremiah Rogers - and perhaps  more rightly here - for it is the  loggers who will allow Vancouver to emerge from the  almost impenetrable cloak of  the virgin forest.  Prior to 1861, not one white  man lived on the shores of Burrard Inlet. There were only the  Indians and they had neither the  tools nor the inclination to alter  the aspect of the land. Certainly  they used hand-split cedar  planks to build their longhouses  and even practised a little  rudimentary falling when they  could not find suitable windfalls. But they took only what  they needed - no more.  The forest, to the Indians,  was simply there - brooding and  enormous - an ancient, illimitable presence they coexisted with, hunted in and profoundly respected. For the  forest was truly imposing - giant  Douglas Firs, 500 years old,  mingled with Western Red  Cedars, Balsams, Hemlocks,  Alders and Maples, in such  choking profusion that to venture away from the shore, it was  necessary to find and follow the  centuries-trodden deer paths  that threaded through the primordial tangle. They provided  the only practical access to that  damp world of perpetual  twilight.  The white man, however,  viewed the woods quite differently. To him, the trees  represented both a source of  potential wealth and an obstacle  to progress that must be toppled.  The man who was destined to  undertake the supervision of  this daunting project, had arrived in Victoria in 1864. He was a  New Brunswicker named Jeremiah (Jerry) Rogers, a big,  bearded man in his 40's who  had already earned his spurs as  a logger in the Puget Sound  country. Rogers' reputation had  preceeded him. He was soon  engaged by Captain Edward  Stamp, a seaman turned  lumberman, to cut spars at Port  Neville and along the Alberni  Canal. It proved to be a profitable association.

BROOKS & MILLER  Cowrie St., Sechelt   885-2923 Coast News, March 2,1987  11;  r  by Penny Fuller  The cast of Bus Stop are pictured at a highlight moment. See review below.  ���Fran Burnside photo  'Bus Stop' a winning production  by Colleen Elson  There were lots of good  things about the Driftwood  Players' production of Bus Stop  and the audience appeared to  appreciate every one of them.  Bus Stop is an American play  by William Inge, the playwright  who also gave us Come Back  Little Sheba and Picnic. It's  probably best remembered as  the film with Marilyn Monroe,  some would say her best film.  Driftwood Players have  resisted the temptation to imitate the film production and  have made the play all their  own.  The plot centres around a  group of bus travellers stranded  in a diner by a snow storm.  Cherie, a chanteuse by her own  description, has been "kidnapped" by Bo, a young Montana  cowboy, determined to marry  her irregardless of her feelings  on the matter. His sidekick,  Virgil, is the voice of reason and  the playwright's voice for some  quiet philosophizing. Doctor  Lyman is the former professor  and present drunk; Carl is the  cynical, "seen-it-all-before" bus  driver, delivering this group to  Grace's Diner in the middle of a  Kansas snow storm.  Awaiting them at the diner-  \ cum-bus stop are Grace, the  ; worldly-wise but lonely owner,  Elma, the young waitress and  Will Masters, the Sheriff.  It's because the group works  so well as an ensemble that it is  difficult to isolate any of the actors for special mention but  Kim Clayton as Cherie deserves  praise, especially for her table-  top rendition of "I'm a Big Girl  Now". Stephany Sheridan gave  us an in-depth and totally  believable  Elma;   John   John  At the  Arts Centre  This year's popular Annual  Young People's Exhibition is  being held from March 11 to 29  at the Arts Centre in Sechelt. It  will include both the work of  elementary and high school age  "children.  Last year, well over 500 people saw the show in a 10 day  period. This year's show is  longer. If you'd like your work  or your children's in the show,  please have it labelled with  name, age, and telephone  number. It should be brought in  to the Arts Centre on Friday or  Saturday, March 6 and 7, between 11 am and 4 pm. We will  hang as much work as we  possibly can, space permitting.  Dreamchild is the 1985  fantasy-drama about the real  life model for Alice in  Wonderland (Alice Hargreaves)  who is asked to visit depression  era New York to participate in  the 100th anniversary of Lewis  Carroll's birth.  The 80 year old dowager  (wonderfully played by Carol  Brown) is not impressed by  America one bit and spends  most of her time fantasizing  about all those wonderful creatures created for her a lifetime  ago.  Muppeteer Jim Henson  designed the Wonderland  tableau and the results are  nothing short of magical. Ian  Holm plays Lewis Carroll.  Dreamchild will be shown at  the Arts Centre, Wednesday,  March 4 at 8 pm. Admission for  adults, $3.50; seniors and  students $3.  Morris aroused our sympathy  and support as Virgil and John  Marian played a difficult role  well, especially in making the  drunkeness and self-reproach a  gradual decline.  Jay Pomfret chose Bus Stop  as his directorial debut. This is a  difficult play to stage well and is  quite a change of pace for Driftwood Players. Pomfret has  done a superb job of keeping  control of the action and in  faithfully reproducing the spirit  of the 50's background.  In this, he has been well-  served by both set-designer, Alf  Davis with his nostalgic and  detailed reproduction of a 50's  diner/bus stop and by the CBC  with their generous loan of  props. The costumes of Lorna  Blaine are spot-on.  A word of appeal to future  audiences. We tend to forget in  this day of television, movies  and videos, that live theatre  depends on its audiences to be  aware of the concentration and  involvement demanded of the  actors.  Any unnecessary and unexpected noise and movement  from an audience is distracting  both to the actors and other  members of the audience.  If you've been waiting for  next week's performances to see  this play, you'd better get there  early. The word is out. It's a  good one!  Thank you Driftwood  Players for once again showing  us that theatre is an important  and thriving aspect of life on the  Sunshine Coast.  COME AS YOU ARE  to our renovated  facilities for one  or several of our  new appetizers.  Open from 4 pm on  Tuesday - Saturday  starting Feb. 24th  For most of us this stirring of  hope in rain-sodden breasts is  merely a part of the normal  rhythm of life, spring fever and  all that rot. But for those of you  who are Aries, born March 21  to April 20, for you these feelings are much more. They're  down right precognitive. Yes  Aries, this is your year. (Werre  going to start an astrological  game show any day now.)  Today, Jupiter abandons  Pisces and passes into the sign  of Aries. That means during  this next year Jupiter will be  passing over each of your sun  positions, and that means good  things. Those of you born  around April 2 get an extra  bonus.  Jupiter and the North Node  (a mathamatical point of importance which indicates a receiving  of good things) will do a little jig  over your natal sun position and  you get a double scoop ice  cream cone from life (meta-  , phorically speaking).  Another group of people who  will find opportunity around  the most unexpected corners are  those born during the following  times:  March '75 to March '76;  April '63 to April '64; April '51  to April '52; May '39 to May  '41; and February '28 to  February '29. You will be experiencing your Jupiter Return,  the time when Jupiter hits the  same place in the sky that it was  when you were born.  All of you will find the next  year full of opportunities to  grow in really positive ways.  But you have to be open to it. It  is unlikely, although possible,  that you will find any life-  changing opportunities watching TV. Get out and be  available to the world. Take a  trip, go to a class or meeting. If  you hear a rumour of any interesting job opportunity,  follow it up. Go for it!  Only one slight word of caution. Jupiter is the planet of opportunity and 'expansion'.

We wanted something simple, yet satisfying at  the end of a long and busy day.  The place was packed when we arrived, Gramma's is a  very popular gathering spot. We found a table in the corner and settled in to observe our surroundings. For  dedicated people-watchers there is no shortage of interesting characters gathered here. We got to see the last  glimmer of daylight as well, as evening settled gently over  the harbour. The glow from Cypress Bowl lit the sky and  the lights reflecting off the water were quite magical.  At Gramma's, the menu is varied, with offerings of  salads and quiche and lots of tempting nibblies. The zucchini sticks are wonderful with their zesty garlic dip.  However, on this occasion we opted for simple but sturdy fare. My colleague chose the Cheddar Chicken Burger,  which came with thick golden fries.lt was declared to be  very good and very filling. Just the ticket.  I chose the fish and chips. This selection arrived crisp  and golden, heaped high on the plate in an 'almost too  much' sized serving with a generous portion of coleslaw  accompanied the dish. The menu boldly states that these  fish and chips are the best. They are. Battered to perfection and with just the right amount of crispiness. The chips  were perfect too.  Sated and relaxed, we sat back to enjoy the surroundings. There is no dessert menu at the moment at Gramma's. Just as well, the travelling sweet tooth has been  grounded. Instead we lingered over Spanish and Irish coffees.  The atmosphere was very warm and friendly. A fellow  diner was quite taken with the beauty of my companion,  comparing her to the Mona Lisa. She was charmed and  highly amused. Dinner at Gramma's, warm, satisfying,  and never dull.

Gibsons Coast News, March 2,1987  13.'  Port Mellon's two Lime Kilns: in the background is the control room building which houses the front, or  hot end, of the kilns. Insert: the kiln operator is breaking up lumps at the front end with a long steel bar.  ���Kent Sheridan photo  Pulpmakers of Port Mellon  Lime kilns key process  by Kent Sheridan  The lime kilns are part of a  mini-recovery process linked  like a chain or circle to the  recausticizing plant at Cantor's  Port Mellon Pulp Mill. There  are two lime kilns at the mill.  They are 250 feet in length; one  is seven feet in diameter, the  other is nine feet in diameter.  The two kilns are cylindrical  in shape and are capable of  rotating at four selected speeds,  independent of each other. Both  are heated by a Bunker 'C fuel  oil firing gun, which uses high  pressure steam to atomize the  fuel for efficient burning.  The kilns lie on a parallel  horizontal plane. The back end,  where the lime mud enters, is  slightly higher than the front  end, where the cooked lime  comes out.  The recycling process between the kilns and the caustic  plant begins with the transfer of  lime mud (insolubles) from the  white liquor clarifier tank to the  mud washer, another large settling tank. The lime mud is then  ���pumped" to storage tanks hear  the back end of the kilns.  The Kiln Operator pumps the  lime mud to a vat, in which a  cylindrical vacuum drum is  rotating. The drum picks the  mud up, washes and dries it,  then discharges the dried lime  mud into the kiln.  Temperature control, density  and amount of load being in  troduced, coupled with the rotational speed of the kiln are  critical variables that kiln  operators must keep in balance  to produce quality lime.  The temperature of the back  end of the kiln, where the lime  mud enters, is about 600 degrees  fahrenheit. The dry lime mud  tumbles down the kiln, passing  through increasing heat zones,  to the front end, where the  temperature is between 2300 to  2400 degrees fahrenheit.  The heat of the kiln has caused the lime mud (caicium carbonate)   to   become   lime  (calcium oxide). The lime comes  out of the kilns in the form of  whitish-grey pellets, although  lumps the size of basketballs occasionally appear.  The lime is transferred to  silos, ready to be used in the  slakers by the Caustic Plant  Operator. This is where the  kiln-caustic plant cycle ends.  A close working relationship  between the Recovery. Plant,  Caustic Plant and Kiln  Operators is required to produce quality white liquor for the  cooking of wood chips to make  pulp.  Police News  A break-in was reported on  February 21 at the Sechelt Inn  Restaurant. Entry was gained  by throwing a rock through the  window. Nothing was taken  and investigation is continuing.  Police are also investigating a  break-in of a residence in Selma  Park. Entry was gained through  the front door. Nothing was  taken.

Coast News, March 2,1987  by Peggy Connor  Yugoslavian night at the Arts Centre was a resounding success. Dinner was a potluck 'banquet' of  Yugoslavian dishes f olllwed by folk dancing, taught and led by Adrian Belshaw. ���Mark Evans photo  World Day of Prayer  Banners, posters, anniversary  cakes, costumes, balloons, and  skits will be included this year in  the observance of World Day of  Prayer. It is a year to celebrate  the end of a century and the  beginning of the second century  of World Day of Prayer. Christians the world round will pray  and celebrate on March 6.  The 1987 service, entitled  "Come and Rejoice" focuses  on the beginnings and develop  ment of the movement. In 1887,  a young American woman,  Mary Ellen James, recognized  the value of united prayer in a  world of violence and suffering.  Since then it has been increasing  in scope as women of 170 countries join in a day of prayer.  A lamp will sympolize the ongoing flame set alight in 1887, a  rose,   the  flourishing  of the  movement, and a globe, the'  scope of it.

Olfert  885-4568  international history is woven  throughout and mingled with  the celebrative readings and  hymns.  A service written especially  for children uses the same  theme and will be used by Sunday Schools and Youth Groups  on a date near March 6.  Many communities are sponsoring additional events such as  banquets, anniversary parties,  children's celebrations, etc. For  several weeks, many Canadian  women have been observing a  daily meditation on World  Prayer experiences of women in  other parts of the world. They  have been impressed by the  significant place it holds in the  lives of women in other boun-  tries.  Canadians have been involved since 1919. World Day of  Prayer has become a custom,  possibly somewhat routine.  This is the year to enter into the  event with renewed vigor, to expand the scope of the service in  every community of this nation.  Come and Rejoice!  Services and celebrations for  this area will be held on Friday,  March 6 at 1:30 pm at the  United Church, Trueman  Road, Gibsons; at St. Aidan's  Anglican Church, Roberts  Creek Road, 1:30 pm and at St.  Hilda's Anglican Church at 1  pm where refreshments will  follow the service.  Clinic note  There is new stuff put out for  sale every week at the Area A  Clinic Auxiliary sponsored  Bargain Barn. Customers are  misled by the news release asking to "hold" onto clothing  donations. That does not mean  it's the same old stuff you saw  last time you were in!  So shoppers, keep coming to  the Bargain Barn on Thursdays  and Saturdays. There is new  stuff.  There were 105 volunteer  members of the St. Mary's  Hospital Auxiliary plus guests  who attended the annual Brown  Bag Luncheon at the Sechelt Indian Band Community Hall  February 17.  Volunteer Director Vivian  Tepoorten, as chairman for the  event, had a fine progam lined  up.  Grace introduced the president of each of the six auxiliaries who in turn listed their  officers. Starting from the first .  auxiliary, Presidents were Alice  Haddock, Pender Harbour;  ��� Mary MacDonald, Halfmoon  Bay; Peggy Gallo, Sechelt;  Olive Nicholson, Roberts  Creek; Jean Clark, Gibsons;  and Lorna Blain, Hopkins Landing.  The chairmen of each different service which is provided  to the hospital by volunteers  were introduced. The services  include extended care, helping  with excercises, feeding patients, bus trips, flower care,  hairdressing, baby photos, etc.  The administrator, Ted  Wright, talked about his past  activities. The ladies wanted to  know what kind of a man was  in charge of the hospital.  We are fortunate to have a  man with such wide experiences  as administrator at St. Mary's  Hospital. Of course it was as  much how he spoke that appealed to the volunteers, as what he  said. All indications are that  here is a very human individual  who takes pride in his work and  respects the people who do the  job.  His philosophy - as manager  his job is to get the job done  through other people by  delegating to department heads.  Secondly, he feels strongly that  the staff are working for the  community. Through the board  and the auxiliary, he expects to  hear what is wanted for this  hospital.  Chairman of the Board, Tom  Meredith, gave a rundown on  the expansion program. St.  Mary's Hospital is the most cost  effective hospital in B.C. The  plans are at present in Victoria  Jawaiting final approval, which: -  -could take two months, then it  is a call for tender, with a proposed start near the first of May  and completion in 18 months.  Chief of Staff, Dr. Jim Pet-  zold, spoke on his first introduction to the auxiliary when  he was trying to get a birthing  bed in the hospital. Failing to  get funding he asked the auxiliary to purchase it and now  over 200 women have used it.  The list of equipment purchased  by the auxiliary is overwhelming.  Out came the brown bags for  lunch   and   a   chance   for  volunteers to exchange ideas.

Sheila the bag lady from  Pender, Babs the flasher, Jessie  the pregnant lady, Lou the jogger, Catherine Kelly in a smart  jacket and tartan skirt and  several other ladies in classy  outfits made for a great show.  Lillo Buckhorn, Executive  Director, introduced the new  physiotherapist, David Kennedy, who comes with a great  deal of experience.  Another newcomer is Jim  McPherson, the chief engineer.  He comes from Whitehorse  General and is a first class  engineer and commercial pilot.  Janice Pentland-Smith, the  new director for the Transition  House, gave a very interesting  talk on what the Transition  House does. The fact that there  are 26 of them in B.C. indicates  the size of the problem. During  the five years the local one has  been going, it has helped 275  families. . ,   ,   .  Jan Mennie spoke on alcohol  and drug abuse and the 'Alternatives' program which is really  helping the young people. But  one counsellor for one day a  week here is not enough. Churches and the community should  get behind this program and  lobby for a full-time counsellor.

Take notice that a minor  amendment to Permit No.  PE-5450 for an effluent  discharge located near Irvines  Landing, British Columbia has  been issued.  The amendment consists of  permission to operate the  sewage treatment plant as a  septic tank until such time as  there is sufficient flow to  operate the plant efficiently as  an extended aeration plant.  A copy of the amended Permit may be viewed at  15326-103A Avenue, Surrey,  British Columbia, V3R7A2,  (telephone: 584-8822), during  normal business hours.  Dated at Surrey Feb. 24, 1987  H.Y. Wong,  Regional Waste Manager.  After eight long years of debating and discussing,  consulting and conferring, hearing opinions and  changing opinions, the Elphinstone Official Community Plan was finally adopted by the Sunshine  Coast Regional District (SCRD) at last Thursday's  meeting. The plan is the second to be adopted on the:  Sunshine Coast, the first being Roberts Creek, and:  both municipalities and all other areas of the  regional district are rapidly following suit.  When the item arose on the agenda, Jim Gurney  stepped down from the chair to make comment on  the evolution of the plan. He pointed out that he  first decided to run for a position on the SCRD in  order to see the plan completed and put into place.  That was four terms ago. It was also the first project  that was placed before Jim Johnstone, Director of  Planning, eight years ago when he was hired.  Throughout the years there were six people who  continuously served on the volunteer committee and  saw the seemingly endless work through to completion. Gurney gave special thanks to Bernie Parker,  Harold Rayner, and Dick Derby, who were present  for the event, and presented them with clocks and  copies of the Settlement Plan in recognition of their  contributions. Gratitude was also expressed to Sheila  Kitson, Celia Fisher, and Kevin Ryan, who were not,  able to attend the meeting. They will also receive  similar gifts of thanks.  Staff members Judy Skogstad and Sean Reid were  commended for their tireless work and the team effort that went into putting the plan together, as were  Jim Johnstone and Geoff Powers.  Gurney told the meeting that, "A milestone has  been reached. The completion of this project will  have a profound affect on Area E. We now have  local control of re-zoning applications and control of  park dedications in our area."

Can you imagine local  kids here on the Sunshine Coast  hooked on drugs at 15? But it's  happening. It's real, as people  who attended the meeting  heard.  A panel was made up of three  alcohol and drug counsellors  from Vancouver who come to  the Coast on a regular basis,  and three local people actively  involved in programs for drug  awareness and related problems.

She listed four  stages of drug use, knowledge  of which would help parents  identify users. It is possible for  someone to intervene at any one  of these stages, the earlier the  better.  Brian Butcher emphasized  that one cannot develop a  dependency in a vacuum, one  must have other people around.  The family is a system, what  one does affects the others. He  listed the roles that each family  member plays when living with  a drug dependent person and  stated that the whole family  must receive treatment for the  problem to be solved.  Lynn Mather and Brian Butcher are both drug and alcohol  counsellors from 'Alternatives'  in North Vancouver and may be  reached for help at the Mental  Health Centre on Thursdays at  885-3251 or in North Vancouver  at 984-0255.  Pat Crawshaw was present  from Canfor Employee  Assistance Services. Pat is a  counsellor involved with over 70  people from the mill, many with  chemical dependencies. Again,  he emphasized that one can't  deal with a chemically dependent person in a vacuum, but  must deal with the whole family  in treatment. User families pro  duce user children. Pat stressed  that teens can go to the Alano  Club where there is recreation in  a drug-free environment.  Dr. Myhill-Jones emphasized  that drug abuse is a community  concern, "It is a people problem rather than a drug problem." Low self-esteem is a  main characteristic in drug  abuse and is a subject that  should be dealt with in schools,  starting at Kindergarten.  Parents should encourage open  discussion with children.  Barb Lynn is a concerned  parent who has struggled in the  community to find help. One  very effective organization that  she found is called 'Toughlove'.  Toughlove is a tool for parents  who want to stop the self-destructive behaviour of their  children. It has many practical  ideas for parents that work. A  group was formed here on  Thursday night and  any in  terested parents should phone  Barb Lynn at 886-9136.  Jan Mennie from the Alcohol  and Drug Planning Committee  said that alcohol and drug use is  more widespread amongst teens  than we think, and is trying to  get more services here on the  Coast.  She emphasized: 1) Prevention: that we must start early  and that these programs are  needed at the elementary level;  2) Intervention: parents have to  find out what's going on, they  must learn what to look for so  they can help early; 3) Consequences: we must establish consequences for unacceptable  behaviour both within the family and the school. Schools may  see problems before the family  so a good liaison is important.  Interested community members were encouraged to apply  pressure at the political level to  increase services.

The decision that was finally reached  was to centralize the program in  one school, Davis Bay Elementary.  The pros and cons of having  two locations, one in Sechelt  and one in Gibsons, were  debated as well as the strain on  young children of having a long  bus ride to and from school.  The term 'fiscal responsibility'  was tossed around several times  before the board voted to locate  the program in Davis Bay.  Chairman Maureen Clayton  emphasized several times during  the debate preceeding the vote  and again in answer to parents'  questions after the vote, that no  child at Davis Bay or any other  school who is in the regular  school program, will be  relocated to accomodate the  French Immersion program.  Davis Bay currently teaches  eight grades, Kindergarten  through Grade 7, in four  classrooms. The recent pre-  registration for next year's  Grade 1 French Immersion class  indicated a possibility that up to  48 students could be enrolled in  the program in addition to the  students who are in it this year.  Superintendent Art Holmes  was asked to make a phone  survey of all students currently  enrolled and all students who  indicated interest in the pre-  registration, to establish how  many of them would be  prepared to participate in the  program when it is located in  . Davis Bay.  An information meeting will  be held at Davis Bay Elementary on March 11, to inform the  parents of students currently attending the school about the  board's intentions and answer  any concerns that they may  have.  A press release issued by the  Board last week attempted to  clarify some of the issues:  "French Immersion is here  and the Board of School  Trustees wish to announce it is  pleased with the progress of the  students during this year. They  believe that in choosing a single  site at Davis Bay the program  will be further strengthened.  "The board has been made  aware of rumors in the community which it wishes to  dispell:    -  "1. There is a concern that  Davis Bay School will be "taken  over" for French Immersion.  The board wishes to assure  those parents who are concerned that there is no intention or  plan for that to happen.  "2. That the French Immersion program is going to be  phased out or discontinued.  "The board considers the  French Immersion program to  be highly successful and intends  to offer the program for as long  as there is a demand for it.  ' "The board is proud to share  in the success of the French Immersion program with those,  Grade 1 students who are  already showing a degree of  fluency in French, their parents  who have shown such strong  support for the program, and  further, to applaud the enthusiasm of the teachers. The  board is looking forward to a  second successful year of  French Immersion at the new  site at Davis Bay."  Wanna go to  Red Sucker Lake?
