Outgoing president Dave  Wilson passed the gavel over to 1987 President, Kay Bailey.  Fran Burnside photo  Volunteer rescuers want  Gibsons lifeboat for Coast  Two meetings have been held  over the last week in an attempt  to get the Gibsons Lifeboat  Squadron off the ground and  on the water.  On January 17, a meeting  was held at the home of Captain  Bill Higgs, which was attended  by six officers of the North  Shore station of the Lifeboat  Squadron and six local people  who had expressed an interest in  starting a squadron-inGibsons:  The West Vancouver members explained that the Rescue  Co-ordination Centre in Vancouver had suggested Gibsons  as one of two ideal sites from  which to base a new lifeboat  squadron. They went on to explain the goals and achievements of the British Columbia  Lifeboat Society (BCLS), which  is a volunteer organization  under the Societies Act.  They explained that with a  coastline of more than 25,000  kilometres, B.C. waters carry  an estimated 250,000 pleasure  craft and more than 7000 registered commercial fishing  boats, as well as the world's  largest ferry fleet. The sheer  number of craft on the water, as  well as the distances involved,  demands a quick, effective and  efficient search and rescue service.  As Coast Guard service has  been found to be sadly lacking  due to the distances involved  and the lack of necessary funding, volunteer crewing has  been found to be the most cost  efficient way to meet the early  unpredictable demands of sea  rescue. They went on to explain  that the BCLS is not an offshoot of any government department but that each  squadron is an independent  society relying on public support to provide its services. Over  85 per cent of all money raised  goes directly to lifeboat operating expenses. The remaining  money is used for fund raising  necessities such as postage and  stationery.  The existing fleet of lifeboats  assisted 2284 persons from 1981  to 1985. This resulted in the saving of 155 lives, as well as an  unestimated value of property.  From this introduction to the  lifeboat society, the ball was  turned over to the local organizers who now have the formidable task of getting a boat  on the water.  The first official meeting of  the Gibsons squadroffwas held  on January 21 at the home of  Ken House and the membership  has grown to eight people^ The  first order of business was the  election of an informal slate of  officers and the assigning of  various responsibilities. Roy- -  Boutilier was appointed coxswain and Ron Qually, secretary-  Responsibility   for  membership and fund raising  will be headed up by Roy  Boutilier and Stan Verhust  respectively, with all members  being given responsibility for  certain tasks.  First aid training is in the  capable hands of George Bodt,  with radio procedures and training to be handled by Ken  House.  Between now and the next  ���meeting, information - will -be  gathered in regards to fund raising, training, insurance and required equipment, with the immediate concern being how to  get a trained crew on the water  in a suitable boat in the shortest  possible time.  If you feel you can help,  either with a financial contribution or by volunteering your  time, please phone George at  886-8076 or Ron at 886-9785 for  information. We urge you to'  support this lifeboat service now  by joining the BCLS and by:  organizing a fund raising event  in your club; remembering the  Gibsons- Lifeboat ..Society- in  your will; funding or donating a  lifeboat, which you would be  permitted to name; making a  donation (no donation is too  small).  Remember, all donations and  contributions are tax deductable  and our immediate goal is  $15,000.  People living on the islands of  Howe Sound should have a  special interest in supporting the  Gibsons Lifeboat Squadron as  it was pointed out that water  ambulance service to the islands  is non-existent. It was felt by all  concerned therefore, that any  . Tscue craft operating^ from  Gibsons must be capable of  transporting a stretcher.  Donations may be sent to  Box 263, Gibsons, B.C. VON  1V0.  Mayor Koch firm  No bail-out for SCTA  "As far as I know, unless I  missed a meeting somewhere,  there are no negotiations going  on between the Sunshine Coast  Tourism Association (SCTA)  and district council about Aqua  West," Alderman Ken Short  stated at last Wednesday's  meeting of Sechelt Council.  He questioned Mayor Bud  Koch about statements quoted  in the Coast News last week in  an interview with SCTA Vice-  President Ed Traff, which indicated that the district  municipality was negotiating to  purchase the  assets of Aqua  West.  However, Koch was quick to  reassure him that nobody on  council was thinking of bailing  out the SCTA, who were responsible for managing the debt-  ridden venture.  "It may appear that way  because we demolished the  building and are storing their  assets," the mayor acknowledged, but went on to explain that  council had applied for funding  with   which   to   purchase   the  Aqua West assets.  "If the funding comes  through, the debts will be taken  care of and the assets will  become the property of Sechelt.  If the funding does not come  through, the assets are theirs  and they will be charged for  storage."  Short appeared to be satisfied  with the explanation, adding  that he just wanted to make sure  the public knew that it is not the  intention of this council to be  responsible for the Aqua West  debt.  By-law needed for dumps  "The proper term is garbage  disposal site," Works Superintendent Gordon Dixon told  the meeting of the public  utilities committee last Thursday, when chairman Gordon  Wilson brought, up the "dump  problem". While the proper  term might have been debatable, there was no question  that committee members and  the works superintendent  agreed that there is a serious  waste management problem on  the Sunshine Coast.  The issue was raised as a  result of dead fish from fish  farms being dumped at both the  Pender Harbour and Sechelt  dumps, but the problem appeared to be more far-reaching.  Wilson pointed out that the  district has no way of monitoring what types of toxic waste  may be put into the local  disposal sites. These toxins  could cause a serious problem,  he pointed out, when they are  burned and emittedMnto the air  or by seeping through to ground  water.  Gordon Dixon told the committee that, in fact, there are no  restrictions on what can be  dumped, "What we need is a  by-law that we can enforce," he  said.  The committee instructed  Dixon to bring a report to the  regional board, analyzing the  situation and recommending  steps to be taken.

In his letter to council, which  Mayor Dianne Strom read and  endorsed last week, Sleep asked  council's approval to have  "meetings...broadcast live, as  they happen, in their entirety."  Initially, only one of council's  two monthly meetings were to  be broadcast live, with the  possibility of covering every  meeting if viewer response was  positive.  In order to set up a live  broadcast, Coast Cable Vision  would have to install cable  hook-ups in the council  chambers and extend a broadcast line to their studio at  Elphinstone Secondary School.  The proposal was first opposed by Alderman Gerry Dixon,  who objected to the idea of  lights in his eyes, adding, "I  don't feel I should be making a  movie." Alderman Norm  Peterson also objected, saying  he felt the newspapers did an  adequate job.  Alderman Bob Maxwell, who  had no objection to the live  broadcasts and who felt that  meetings may be viewed by  many people in the community  who never come in, introduced  a motion to approve the broadcasts. However, because there  was no seconder, no vote was  taken.  Mayor Strom asked council  members to reconsider their  positions and reminded them  that as mayor, she has the right  to bring up the issue in a future  meeting.  Channel 1 l's offer last fall to  televise the District of Sechelt's  council meetings also met with  failure. In a letter dated October  7, 1986, Malcolm Shanks, the  district's administrator, gave the  reason for the rejection as "inadequate space in setting up  cameras and lights, etc."  According to Steve Sleep,  most cable companies are now  broadcasting council meetings  in their local areas. Both Delta  Cable (Coast Cable's parent  company) and Vancouver Cable  are doing so on a regular basis.

Strong letters were sent out by Mayor Strom protesting  that higher prices are charged locally than exist in other  coastal communities. Shell Oil and Petro Canada have recently responded, denying they are discriminating against buyers  ^ on the Sunshine Coast. Both letters go on at some length to  explain how the final pump prices are the result of costs and  local competition. Neither offered any hope of lowering local  prices.

Brad Benson photo 2.  r  Coast News, January 26,1986  run a country  The latest forced resignation of a cabinet minister from  the federal government can only be greeted with a certain  numbness of the spirit.  That hideously expensive defence contracts are being let  out with this kind of apparent ministerial skulduggery is  beyond belief.  A prime minister whose friends are deeply involved in  such goings-on, including one just named to the Senate,  and who himself had a federal prison built in his distant  riding at an extra cost of some $40 million with no regard  for the hardship caused visiting family members in the  populated centres of his province can scarcely be regarded  with confidence in these matters.  Just oer two years ago the Canadian electorate threw  out a Liberal government which had grown cynical and  currupt after many years in power. The government which  replaced them seems to have been born cynical and corrupt.  This is no way to run a country. How can such a  government ask the average Canadian to make sacrifices  for the national good when its leading members appear to  be tripping over themselves in their attempts to enrich  themselves in office?  Why not TV?  Gibsons Council members should take to heart Mayor  Diane Strom's advice to reconsider their position on the  live television coverage of council meetings.  To hesitate on a personal basis to sit before live television cameras is understandable, but these personal considerations should be set aside and the true issue at question; whether or not such broadcasts would harm or  enhance our local process of government, be addressed.  This opportunity should not be simply ignored.  <r. <   ,   <^*��� rf, ��ft*/  * <    ^ *s  5 YEARS AGO  Henry Hall of Cameo Industries entertained Sechelt  Council last week with an ingenious plan to promote a  dry-land marina and essentially a parking lot for boats  to be located in the isthmus between Porpoise Bay and  the Strait.  The plan calls for government and entrepreneur to  work together to promote Sechelt as "Fisherman's  Village". The scheme would, in Hall's words, "Double  the assessment value of the village...bring higher income for business...result in spin-off land sales...and bring tourists to Sechelt."  Council offered no objections to his plans to promote  the project.  10 YEARS AGO  One mil represents one thousandth part of the  assessed value of your properties, therefore, as was the  case in Sechelt recently where new home values were  $75,000 the home owner pays $7.50 for each mil levied.  He would pay $22.50 per year (less than 50 cents per  week) if the regional board approved the five year plan  with the three mil levy.  15 YEARS AGO  Reduction of school board over-spending from close  to half a million dollars in 1968 to a near vanishing point  was reported at Thursday night's school board meeting  last week, by J. Metzler, secretary-treasurer.  20 YEARS AGO  A helicopter carrying three men, two from Gibsons,  severed a B.C. Hydro power line in the McNab Creek  area at about 9 am Tuesday, resulting in a three hour  power outage over an area from the break to Powell  River.  25 YEARS AGO  Blame the weather on H-bombs? Well it is one way of  getting an opinion off your chest. There must be a  reason for the kind of weather the world has experienced lately.  30 YEARS AGO  Are you a qualified teacher not at present teaching? If  so, would you be willing to teach in your own community while the present shortage exists? Married women  and others who have certification for British Columbia  schools will be urgently needed next September to ensure British Columbia children have properly qualified  teachers next year.  35 YEARS AGO  Gibsons firemen are going to get a chance to relax in  more or less comfort when some local ladies are finished with their plans.  A tea and sale of home cooking will be held in the  United Church Hall, Friday, February 1, with proceeds  going to furnish the firehall recreation room.  40 YEARS AGO  The condition of peninsula roads has become so  serious that residents are organizing volunteer crews to  make repairs. An appeal for aid from the Minister of  Public Works has been made, but it is feared that the  roads will become almost impassable on the peninsula  as soon as the thaw hits.  r  The Sunshine  Publisher & Managing Editor       Co-Publisher  John Burnside M.M.

Normally out of sight to the general public, this logging  show is taking place along Highway 101 near Wilson Creek. Sun-  coast Lumber and Milling have purchased, and are now logging, 28  acres at a site between Browning Road and Highway 101 in Wilson  Creek. Owners Terry Kwasney and Dennis Munson employ about  10 men at this operation. Up to three logging trucks are used in  rotation and will haul approximately 750,000 board feet of mostly  gang timber to Howe Sound, where it will be sorted, boomed and  then delivered, probably by tugboat, to the sawmill that buys the  wood. According to Dennis Munson, the development of the  acreage after the logging is finished is still under consideration.  ���Kent Sheridan photo  A visit to  B.C. Press Council  I had my B.C. Press Council  adventure this week. I would  normally wait for the Press  Council to announce its findings but when I arrived at the  Airport Inn in Richmond last  Thursday to meet with the  council I found not only the  complainant, Jim McDowell, in  attendance for the occasion but  one Allan Crean-Crane poised  to record the proceedings, ever  the jackal at the feast.  To recap how all this came  about: in August with my then  editorial colleague Dianne  Evans on vacation I turned up  one Monday morning as  reporter at a meeting of the  Tourism Task Force held under  the aegis of Capilano College.  It should be noted that I was  a member of the task force, appointed as representative by the  Sunshine Coast Economic Development Commission on which  body I represent the Gibsons  and District Chamber of Commerce. The meeting in question  started at 9 am, I got there at  11:15 am meaning to catch the  drift of the proceedings, get the  minutes and, space permitting,  make a report.  I got there as they were  nominating for Task Force  Chairman. Captain Vic Walker  was nominated and Alderman  Anne Langdon objected for  unspecified reasons, hinting it  came out of her experience with  Captain Walker when he was  chairman of the ExpOasis Committee.  There was an incredulous  hush for a moment then Bryan  Rubin said Langdon couldn't  do that, couldn't object to a  nomination without giving  reasons and I blurted out that  the only time the ExpOasis  Committee, in my opinion, had  any sense of purpose or direction was after Captain Walker  became its chairman.  It was generally felt that  Langdon was attempting a  power play to take over the task  force. Her nomination for  chairman was none other than  Jim McDowell, her sidekick on  the Sunshine Coast Tourism  Association. It did not succeed.  In my report on the task force  meeting I included a report of  Langdon's attack on Captain  Walker and my one sentence  defence of him.  Later on I also reported on an  economic development commission meeting from the minutes.  At the request of the commission I included a copy of my  report in an envelope to Jeff  Lee, then editor of the other  publication on the Coast, along  with the minutes from which I  had prepared my report. I left it  to him whether he wanted to use  my report or write his own from  the minutes.  These relatively innocuous in  cidents prompted McDowell to  write a letter or two to the  newspapers. Readers of Sunshine Coast newspapers will  agree that members of the Sunshine Coast Tourism Association have needed little prompting to write letters for publication.  Jeff Lee, who had publicly  acknowledged that my reports  from the minutes were fair and  accurate, told McDowell in an  editor's note that he should  complain to the B.C. Press  Council if he thought he had  reason. Privately he told me he  had made the suggestion to get  McDowell off his back.  So I found myself last week  in Richmond prepared to do  battle with Jim McDowell with  the Crane sitting by to record  his twisted version of the affair.  Harsh? I think not. Crane is  the reporter who attended the  last public meeting of the Sunshine Coast Tourism Association and reported that outgoing  president Richard Tomkies was  well pleased with the work of  Jim McDowell and Allan Crane  but made no reference to the  question of the unresolved debts  rolled up by Tomkies, Vedo,  Langdon and company in the  Aqua West adventure, discussed   at  the   meeting  The discussion insofar as  newspaper etiquette is concerned is not whether I reported accurately or fairly - no one questioned that - but whether or not  I should have given myself a byline while reporting stories in  which I also participated. I  think probably I should have  but I invite all to compare this  oversight with the use to which  McDowell and Crane put their  access to publication.  I informed the Press Council,  that while they did not wish to  get involved in disputes between  newspapers they had nonetheless done just that since  McDowell and Crane, with their  tourism grants run out, were  again both writing for the opposition.  I pointed out that the organization for which they had  worked had rolled up debts of  some $17,000 in 1985 in the  community and, despite a grant  of almost a quarter of a million  dollars in the fall of 1985 had  managed to overspend by  $70,000 in community debts in  1986.1 said that as a responsible  member of the business community I had to object to such  managers playing a central role  in the business affairs of the  community. We just couldn't  afford them, in my opinion.  I noted that the most recent  issues of both newspapers  displayed with equal prominence the report of the  achievement of a Community  Futures designation, which  must be regarded as a major  coup for the much maligned  Irene Lugsdin. Yet, in an opinion piece he wrote in the same  issue of the opposition paper  McDowell was at it again, heaping scorn and abuse on the  Community Development Officer.  I invited the Press Council to  wonder with me if McDowell's  latest tirade had anything at all  to do with the fact that he is  designated Small Business  Development Officer in Oddvin  Vedo's latest grant application  to the federal government on  behalf of his very own Sunshine  Coast Economic Development  Corporation. There is also provision in the latest Vedo grant  proposal for a researcher to  support McDowell. Who might  be in mind for that government  funded position think you?  (It might be noted that the  regional economic development  commission hired a qualified  man as small business consultant a couple of months ago.)  To sum up, I suggested to the  B.C. Press Council that what  was happening here was not  really about the ethics of journalism. I suggested that  McDowell and the reporter he  had thoughtfully provided for  himself both stood to gain if  they could succeed in discrediting my newspaper and myself.  On the other hand, my involvement with the Tourism  Task Force and the Economic  Development Commission are  community service activities  from which I personally make  no gain.  Be it noted that my attendance at the Press Council was  voluntary. They cannot compel  an independent publisher to appear before them. That's why  you need not wait for action on  my complaint about the questionable ethics of my opposition  in the newspaper field which  often seems to have been captured lock, stock, and barrel by  the geniuses who gave us the  debts associated with the  salmon shark lottery and the  still larger debts run up under  their Aqua West banner. There  will be no action on that complaint because the publisher will  not appear before the Press  Council.  That should tell us all we  need to know about where integrity is being practised in the  newspaper scene on the Sunshine Coast.  The B.C. Press Council will  release its findings in a couple of  weeks. They will be carried in  this newspaper.  Faces III  Features of my equals would you trick me with your creas'd and cadaverous march?

Walt Whitman Coast News, January 26,1986  H&ll  Editor:  Re: Fish disposal at Pender  dump.  This is a growing problem  which may cause fish farmers to  be shut out of a handy disposal  facility, or at worst, could  threaten the existence of the  Pender Harbour dump. But  none of this need happen.  Ninety per cent of the problem would vanish if the fish  farmers would follow a simple  rule that will not cost any time  or money. Apart from the big  plankton kill last summer, the  weekly volume of fish dumped  has not been high, probably not  more than a few hundred  pounds on the average. The  problem is that these small lots  of rotting fish are left lying  about all over the dump and  become mixed in with household garbage. This maximizes  the nuisance to users of the site  and results in the whole dumping area being smeared with  stinking fish during clean up.  As the maintenance contractor, I would like to use your  pages to inform fish farmers  how much of this can be avoided. All farmers must do is drive  in to the end of the active dum  ping area, following the clear,  nail-free road alongside the  dump, and deposit their bags at  the base of the working face of  newly compacted garbage. It's  that simple. We can bury it  there in a minute without having to touch it or drag it all over  the public dumping area.  Anyone unclear about what I  mean may call me at 883-2730  and I will happily show them  the site.  I am not saying this approach  would ultimately satisfy all  regulatory requirements, or  handle any significant increase  in volume, but while officialdom wrestles with a permanent solution, most of the  immediate concerns would be  taken care of, and it could just  be you wouldn't hear much  more about it, especially if  farmers would be so good as to  add their own lime.  Major dumpings (over 200  pounds) should still be arranged  for by phoning the Regional  District office or myself at  883-2730.  Fish farmers please take note,  your own interests are at stake!

It is nearly  all caused by the great increase  of the aquaculture industry  here. The otters break into the  salmon and trout ponds where  the fish are not protected by  strong netting around the pens,  Annoyed? Shoot it!  Editor:  If it annoys us - it has to go!  If it in any way threatens our  lifestyle or our dollar - it has to  go!  We leave our garbage exposed, the bears catch a whiff and  make their way towards this  source of easy food. Get out  your gun! The bears have to go!  Beavers clog up a waterway.  OK - let's shoot 'em! They're a  nuisance!  When did you last see an otter along the beach? My last  sighting was about six years  ago, but they used to live here.  Now we have a new target,  the seals! What right do they  have to live in our ocean and eat  fish? What nerve! These fish are  meant for us to eat, not for the  seals or sea lions!  I recall the day when a friend  came home from fishing, furious because he had seen a seal  yank a fish from his line, big  deal! So what did it matter?  There was food in the fridge as  an alternative to the fish that the  seal ate. And that's what seals  live on, fish.  So what right do we have to  deprive them of their natural  food source?  Oh, I know I don't make my  living from Fishing and that  many people do, but why can't  we live and let live?  I know too, that if you are a  fisherman you may be outraged  at those of us who speak out in  defence of the seal and of all  God's creatures. But I too am  outraged when I see a headline  in a local publication which says  "Fishermen Support Seal Control". Control means only one  thing - kill 'em!  Where does all this stop?  What will be next on the list of  creatures, or people, who are  considered a nuisance to some?  I wonder!  Ruth Forrester  Mother's March  Editor:  January 24 to February 3 has  been declared Mothers' March  Week in B.C. for this, the 35th  annual march.  The Kinsmen Club of Gibsons and District, which this  year celebrates its 38th year, is  proud to once again organize  this extremely worthwhile campaign for the Kinsmen Rehabilitation Foundation in our area,  which is from Port Mellon to  Earl's Cove.  Last year's campaign revealed a decline in the number of  participating marchers. As this  year's Mothers' March co-  chairman, I would expect that  some people may be donating  less due to economic conditions.  For this reason, I ask that more  people give and/or participate  as marchers. The Kinsmen  Rehabilitation Foundation,  unlike the individual, cannot get  by with less as this means a  direct cut in services to the people who rely on them.  I appeal to the people in our  area, give what you can. If you  can't give money, maybe you  can give us some of your time.  We are particularly short of  marchers in the Davis Bay/  Selma Park area (we only have  a few). I would also like to see  volunteers for the Halfmoon  Bay/Redrooffs area, which is  usually canvassed by mail.  In closing, I appeal to those  of you who feel they cannot give  to remember the adage, "I once  complained because I had no  shoes until I saw a man who had  no feet." Rethink your attitude,  there are many who have lost a  lot more than their feet, they  need you more than ever.  I wouid also like to add that  businesses will hopefully be canvassed as well.

I am sorry to say a great  many of the salmon farms are  not using any of these methods,  but are depending on killing the  otters by other means such as  traps, guns, nets or any way  they can destroy them every  month of the year. This way, if  a mother otter is killed in the  spring with young in the den,  the kits will starve, or if they  venture out will be killed by  predators.  In the last year I have had  many calls from the salmon  farms for help in controlling the  otters and some are using the  methods I have recommended  and others are not. I called on  10 or 12 farms in December and  none of them have had any letters or anyone to tell them what  the law is on otters, and one or  two did not know an otter from  a seal. These farms are scattered  over a wide area, some on  islands and others far up inlets.  What we need is inspection of  every one of these aquafarms to  see they are doing everything to  ���keep the otters out without killing them. I am not able to do  this and I am sure our local conservation officer is overworked  now.  The otters travel long distances on the coast and come in  contact with more than one  salmon farm on their travels. I  would estimate the otters have  declined in the last year on the  coast from one otter to every  mile to one in every ten miles or  more.  I have not seen a live otter  this last year, only dead ones  floating in the water. We don't  have to go and hear about some  animal being wiped out in some  foreign country. It is happening  on our own doorstep.  Doug Williams  SKOOKUM UPDATE  "I am a great believer in luck, and I find  that the harder I work the more I have of it."  - STEPHEN B.

Most of us in the  ;*Iine-up   thought   that   it   was  ^because a tree had been cut  ���Idown and that part of it was still  ���'being moved off the road.  >.*  It came as a shock to learn  ;that it was not just a matter of a  ��'^tree - it was the passing of a  ><nuch loved man. Ed Benzel had  :-been in the process of helping  ;%emove branches from the road  vjvhen he was struck by a heart  ^attack from which he died later  ���ilhat evening.  y Doctor Carl Amberg, along  ��vvith several other residents, did  ���jtheir best to revive Ed and it  ��ivould have been thanks to these  [-good people if Ed had made it.  ;tflowever, it was.not to be. It  ;|tnay be of some small consolation to his family that Ed did  !^not have to suffer and that the  ?iend came while he was doing  Something he was enjoying.  ~* Ed and his wife Jean moved  *5o Redrooffs from Richmond  r3ome five years ago, and in that  ~^ime made many friends in the  tjarea.  > He was former general  .^manager of Canadian Linen  ^Company and upon retirement,  ^ytook the position of manager of  ;-the Blueberry & Cranberry Co-  ":Op in Richmond. Ed was airways an active man who was in-  -: terested in people and who gave  much of his time to helping  young people, particularly those  who were in trouble.  . Our thoughts go out at this  time to his loving wife and family by whom he will be sorely  missed. Memorial service will be  held on Wednesday, January 28  at St. Hilda's Anglican Church  in Sechelt, followed by a gathering at the Senior Citizens' Hall.  DID YOU NOTICE?  I wonder how many Halfmoon Bay people read the Legal  columns in our local  newspapers. For the benefit of  those who don't pay much heed  to them I thought it my duty as  your local columnist to draw  your attention to one which appeared last week and which  would have an impact on our  community.  Mr. Dolmage of Halfmoon  Bay has applied for a foreshore  lease for boat moorage in front  of his residence. There is  already a boat moorage float in  place and at the present time,  we are free to walk the waterfront in that area. Since the  closure of the Redrooffs Trail,  this is now the only route left  for public usage. If a private  lease should be approved, we  will all be .deprived of yet  another beach access.  You do have the opportunity  to make your; comments regarding this application by writing  to the Office of the District  Land Manager, 4240 Manor  Street, Burnaby, B.C.

Kiwanis  Auxiliary  meets  by Rosemary Fay, 886-8645  The first meeting of 1987 of  the Gibsons Kiwanis Care Centre Auxiliary on January 21 saw  16 members present and Carol  Bishop. President Marge Wheeler opened the meeting, which  will be her last in the president's  chair.  All members are reminded  that the next meeting is for the  election of officers for the coming year and it will be on  February 18.  We are sad to see our present  officers all stepping down as  they have served so wonderfully  for the past two years.  Marge Wheeler gave us a  general oversight of the work of  the auxiliary and re-defined our  aims for the coming year.  We had the residents'  meeting minutes read to us,  which we always enjoy and find  interesting, as well as the  various committee's reports.  The Sunnycrest Mall is booked for our Christmas Bazaar on  November 7.  The residents have invited us  to a Sweetheart Dance on  February 12, starting at 7 pm.  The unusual admission fee is  one love song.  The auxiliary decided to purchase a number of items for the  home including a Camcorder,  various games such as floor  shuffleboard, and a portable  amplifyer and microphone,  which will be most useful for  the residents' functions as not  everyone can hear too clearly.  We look forward to a large  turn out for the annual general  meeting on February 18 at 8 pm  in the residents' lounge.

What way would you like to see  i]t develop?  ', This week, residents received  4 questionnaire in their mail  lj>oxes from the new District  Municipality of Sechelt which  asks this question and a few  others.  ': This is part of an effort by  Sechelt to discover what people  wpuld like to see happen with  6ur community. With the boundary expansion, Sechelt has  grown in population base. With  }he proper planning we can  develop Sechelt's core into a  viable people place which will  benefit residents and enhance  the business sector. It is very important that everyone has an  opportunity    for   input   into  future development, especially  related to a proposed community leisure centre.  The questionnaire is designed  to get information on recreation, community use buildings  and a centralized service office.  We urge you to not only fill in  your replies to the questions,  but to add any additional comments or desires you have for  Sechelt. Everyone's comments  will be taken into consideration  by council. You are a very important part of our planning!  Please return your questionnaire as soon as possible to the  office on Dolphin Street, or call  one of the aldermen if you have  any questions or would like to  put forth some suggestions.

Married in Prince Rupert on  January 11, 1927 at First United  Church and now 60 years later  the January 11 date fell on a  Sunday so they could attend the  church service. A reception was  held in their honour where the  longest serving city mayor in  Canada, Mayor Peter Lester attended. Two doctors from the  medical clinic where Jean worked were there, as well as old  school friends.  Four generations of Barclays  were gathered at Prince Rupert,  their son David Ross Barclay  and his wife Ada from Kitimat  and David's son David. Robert  and Sandra came from Smithers  with their daughter Melissa.  The Barclays were most  definite about not wanting any  gifts but friends and relatives  got around that one in a very  appropriate way. In Prince  Rupert they are opening,  hopefully, in April of this year  the Prince Rupert Performing  Arts Centre. Two seats were  purchased in the name of Bob  and Jean with a plaque containing their names placed on the  seats for all to see. So if you  ever go to Prince Rupert and attend the Arts Centre, look for  their names. Probably the best  seats in the house knowing the  popularity of the Barclays here  and the esteem felt for them in  the northern city.  Congratulations on your Diamond Anniversary from your  local friends too.  SECHELT LEGION  The Sechelt Legion Bingo is  feeling the pinch of the new  government regulations regarding bingos, while adhereing  strictly to the new regulations it  does limit the amount of money  small groups may make and  does cause a hardship.  They do so much good with  the   money   they   raise,   they  should   be   encouraged   more .  than held back.  The Legion and auxiliary  donated to many groups over  $21,000 in 1986.  Sechelt  Seniors  by Larry Grafton  First and foremost on the  coming agenda is a Spaghetti  Dinner on February 7, in our  hall at 6:30 pm. This will be a  benefit for both ourselves and  our provincial body. This time  we have printed only 100 tickets  and hopefully the shortcomings, if any, from our last one  will be rectified. The price is $5  per person. Tickets may be had  by phoning 885-2182 or  886-3728, or personally contact  Gerry Chailler or myself.  NOTICE BOARD  As a result of discussion at  our last executive meeting, we  now have a notice board in  front of the hall for all to check  out the activities of the branch.  I understand Micky Cornwell  was the builder/architect in  conjunction with Henry Draper  as consultant and construction  foreman. All in all it's a good  addition.  FUN NIGHT  The fun night on January 17  was enjoyed by the good crowd  that turned out for cards, Aggravation and just plain socializing. It was an excellent opportunity to get to know your  fellow members. Unfortunately, this time there was no dancing although Jim Derby was on  hand and ready with his tapes.  This will probably be rectified at  the next fun night on February  21. Time is 7:30 pm. Please  mark your calendar.

J Coast News, January 26,1986  Marvanne's viewpoint  u  ying is matter  of attitude  by Maryanne West  Young students of Gibsons Elementary School are enjoying the sun  and the playground on their lunch hour. ���Ken Sheridan photo  Bullying in the school yard is  of course, nothing new, a problem no doubt, since schools  began or before. Kids are, after  all, human.  We humans have a lot of difficulty controlling our emotions, often all our lives, even  though we manage to keep a  generally civilized face to the  world. If we're honest, we know  that it often doesn't take much  to trigger anti-social thoughts if  not actions.  We are only just beginning to  understand the complexities of  how our feelings about ourselves on any given day may affect  the way things go for us, how  other people treat us; that the  way others respond to us may  be the result of the signals we  are giving. Our grandmothers  may   not   have   known   any  theories of psychology but there  was sound common sense in  their advice to "Smile and the  whole world smiles with you".  Bullying is not, it seems to  me, a black and white situation  of good guys and bad guys,  rather its a matter of attitudes;  attitudes for everyone, for those  George    in    Gibsons  First Aid videos?  by George Cooper, 886-8520  The sterling work in first aid  that Earl Buchan of the Sunshine Coast Army Cadets performed at the scene of the car  crash in Hopkins Landing the  other week has already been  reported but it is so deserving of  commendation that it can well  be mentioned again.  "Earl took charge of the  scene," said first aid instructor  David Hartman, "until the ambulance arrived. He assessed the  situation correctly and calmed  the two injured people trapped  in their car.  "Very rewarding feeling for  me," added Mr. Hartman, "to  find my first aid instruction put  to such good use in that critical  situation."  Mr. Hartman, a St. John's  Ambulance instructor, said he  became interested in the cadet  corps training when his  daughter wanted to join.  "I had no idea, perhaps even  a wrong one, what the youngsters did in cadet training, and  since I found that the wilderness  survival training, like using map  and compass, and of course,  first aid, really prepared them  for useful community service.  I've had nothing but praise for  the cadet corps."  David Hartman, we might  add, is prepared to conduct first  aid courses to suit the requirements of any group,  whether it be a logging or other  industrial concern, to community organizations like the Scouts  or groups of school teachers,  for instance.  "Now that videos are  available," said Mr. Hartman,  "first aid classes can be very  graphic, and the actual practice  exercises more meaningful.  . "First aid training in any club  or group means that much more  back-up for the emergency services. Immediate action in an  accident in the home, on the  school playing field, or  wherever is often critical."  Mr. Hartman said, "Anyone  who is lying hurt after an accident can be awfully glad to see a  cadet coming to his or her  assistance. The cadets have  learned their first aid well."  To make for more readily  available instruction in first aid  on our Sunshine Coast, David  Hartman would like to see a  library of first aid videos set up.  Perhaps a community group  or groups will consider this as a  public service project.

Everyone welcome.  editor of the Vancouver Sun has  asked for biographical information on a number of Canadian  airmen stationed in Britain during World War II.  Among those listed was  Frank Bushfield of Gibsons  Landing who died overseas  December 26, 1943, aged 33.  In Les Peterson's The Gibson's Landing Story, a Reverend Frank Bushfield is mentioned as the incumbent of the Gibson Memorial Church. In his  time, the church building, then  on the site of the present day  Pioneer Park, was "enlarged.  Do  any  of you  have any  recollections to add to this?  RCL BRANCH 109  The ladies of the auxiliary of  Branch 109, Royal Canadian  Legion, served a luncheon last  Wednesday to a jovial gathering  of seniors, the 109'ers.  This monthly event is much  appreciated by all of us who attend, ladies, both for the good  food and the opportunity to  chat with others we likely would  not otherwise meet.  One of the longtime legion  members, "Curly" Martindale,  has a store of Branch 109  history stored in his wallet. Curly has a collection of his  membership cards (how many  Curly?), kept from the year he  first joined. Since each year's  card is signed by the secretary of  the time, the name of any  secretary of a past year can be  easily found in Curly's collection.  COLD TURKEY  There was a folk tale, concocted by our elders, of wide acceptance a couple of generations ago, that said tobacco  stunted growth.  Fearful of remaining midgets,  hundreds, even thousands of us  youngsters stopped "cold  turkey" in our experiments with  thistledown, willow leaves, or  even tea rolled into brown paper  cigarettes. Some who shredded  butts picked from the street  paused at least for a moment in  their practice when they heard  the tale.  Then, for a small class of  Grade 9 boys, the tale lost all its  fearsome significance one day  in a "health" class.  When the teacher repeated  the tale of stunting growth, a  boy named Richard piped up,  "Please miss, my mother says  she has smoked since she was  10."  What a roar resounded in the  classroom. In that small town  everyone knew Richard's  mother, who at six foot three,  towered above his father, and  most of the town's men.  Now that there are more  reasons that have arisen out of  medical research to eschew  tobacco, I wonder if the impact  upon our young folk is any  stronger than that folk tale was  upon us, those many years ago.  But be steadfast, "hang in  there", you cold turkey'ers.  who are prone to bully, for  those being bullied and also for  those who are standing by condoning acts of anti-social  behaviour.  Attitudes make up a complex  frame of mind, a long slow haul  for a child, influenced by the  values of his family and friends  at home and at school, as well  as what he sees in the community and on television. Acceptable  interaction with others is a continuing learning experience for  everyone.  When our kids were at school  here it was acceptable for  teachers (not all, I'm glad to  say), to belittle and bully  children who didn't make good  marks, or who were timid or  shy in the classroom.  It was devastating for the victims of scorn and encouraged  intolerance and feelings of  superiority in those who were  less vulnerable. Schools now  know that a child's feeling of  self worth is of paramount importance to his success in both  academic and social endeavours, and you'll find that caring and sharing are emphasized  in all schools at all levels.  Of course supervision is  necessary .and important, but  it's not the solution to the problem. That lies with all of us,  parents and teachers and the  community at large, to create  the sort of environment for our  children in which individuals are  valued for themselves and in  which all can feel confidence in  their ability to cope.  pub��l6sons  Hours;  Tuesday  Thursday  baturdau  STORYT/ME  llc ^brary  Lander's Baby  500 ml  "A" FHEE AIH For the month of Jan.  * SPORT RENTAL PKG.  6 months for ��50 )*�������f  ���k   DIVING       by ��� SCUBAPRO ��� OCEANIC  PRODUCTS ���WARDELLSU1Ts  SALES ��� SERVICE  ��� RENTALS  IDMNG     ��� INSTRUCTION  ���LOCKER  s'gn up for  FREE  lecture  and  pool  'sessions  5567 DOLPHIN ST.

More people will be served by  the extended water main, lobbying to deal with the aquaculture  issue has been effective, some  problem areas in Roberts Creek  are on the Highway Department's priority list, and there  may yet be a solution to the dog  problem.  The 14 inch water main slowly being installed along the  highway is budgeted to reach  the Peninsula Hotel, so many  people below the highway and  some above not presently served  by the regional water system  may have access. Works  Superintendent Gordon Dixon  will be at a Community Association meeting in February  with maps so all people possibly  affected should plan on attending.  ', Although the dog control  referendum was defeated in  November there may be an-  pther. The first was only tor  regional district areas and now  Gibsons and Sechelt are in- .  terested. A scheme involving the  ���whole Coast would be more  cost effective. Brett was headed  !to a meeting about the matter  .'when I talked to him on Friday  imorning.  ; The support of the Association of Vancouver Island Municipalities (AVIM) for our  district's concerns about Jhe  aquaculture industry helped to  prompt the Gillespie Commission. Now the regional board  will ask the AVIM to help get  some of the commission's  recommendations implemented.  Most important to our area  would be the right to zone the  waterfront.  There's some good news  from the Highways Department  for a change. Straightening the  S-turn at the Peninsula Hotel  and putting in a left turn lane at  the corner of Hall Road and  Highway 101 are on their priority list.  Unfortunately jurisdictional  problems have arisen  in  the  matter of the washout at Largo  Road. The part affected is actually a logging road and it's  forestry's responsibility. Sandy  Gibb came to the rescue with  the immediate repairs but  there's still a lot of work to be  done.  The logging trucks on  Lockyer Road are a major concern for the danger they pose to  kids on the road. The Department of Highways is being asked to at least slash back the  brush at the side of the road to  improve visibility. Fortunately  the logging in the area is of a  limited duration.  The logging of small sections  by small enterprises is working  out well. They've done a good  job of protecting the creeks and  meeting the concerns expressed  at last year's Community  Association meeting on the subject. A close check is kept on the  operations and forestry officials  are quite willing to come out to  another meeting to answer any  questions.  And on the economic front,  the Community Futures program and the grant for the  cross-country skiing development promise to be real boons  to the community. All in all, it  was a very up-beat report from  Brett along with the note that  having a Settlement Plan for  Roberts Creek eliminates a lot  of the problems still faced'by  other areas, particularly in the  matter of zoning. /  WORLD PRAYER  Marjorie Passmore would  still like to hear from people interested in a World Day of  Prayer service at St. Aidan's on  March 6. This year's service  commemorates the 100th anniversary of the Day of Prayer  and will be observed in some  170 countries. Please phone  Mrs. Passmore at 885-3498. The  service is non-denominational.  VALENTINE DANCE  Plans are already being made  for a Valentine's Dance at the  Roberts Creek Legion. Larry  Bransen will be back to provide  the music and there will be  prizes for the best cupid and  Queen of Hearts costumes.  Educators brainstorm  Approximately 30 people  from around School District 46  put their heads together last  Monday to come up with specific recommendations to the  Board of School Trustees when  they set goals and objectives for  the district.  Principals, district employees  and trustees worked hand in  hand through the full day session, held at the Bella Beach  Motel, with representatives  from the Canadian Union of  Public Employees (CUPE),  Sunshine Coast Teachers' Association, and Parents' Advisory  Groups.  Participants broke into  groups of six where they brain-  stormed, refined and ranked  objectives in six broad categories: district facilities; community, home and school communication; financial manage  ment; educational/instructional  programs; district support services; and district management/  organization.  After the groups had  thoroughly hashed over each  topic, their recommendations  were listed and the entire  meeting repeated the process as  a whole. A final list was compiled, with priority ratings indicated, and these will be turned  over to the board for their consideration before they set the  budget for next year.  Board Chairman, Maureen  Clayton, appeared pleased with  the session. Although she emphasized that this was only for  the purpose of making recommendations, her philosophy of  more community input into  board decisions was reflected in  this first objectives setting  workshop.  Multi-cultural week  Mayor Bud Koch formally declared February 15 to 21,  1987, Multicultural Week at last Wednesday's Sechelt Council meeting, reading the following proclamation:  Whereas the people who have come from different parts of  the world to make their home in British Columbia have each  brought with them a rich cultural heritage; and  Whereas the promotion of multicultural activities in the  province will enhance unity amidst diversity and strengthen  the entire community; and  Whereas the Multicultural Community reflects the courage  and convictions of Canada's Native peoples and earlier  pioneers, the pioneering spirit that informs all Canadian  citizenship,  Now Therefore, I do hereby proclaim the week of  February 15 to 21, 1987 Multicultural Week in British Columbia to be so celebrated.  :0l*feii;|^:a^  California - 60's  AVACAD0ES  B.C.

Live  models, both male and female are used. Above are the drawings of  Pat Chamberlain. ���Brad Benson photo  At the Arts Centre  Life drawings  Slice of Life, the exhibition  showing at the Arts Centre in  Sechelt from January 23 to  February 15 is a collaboration  of the intrepid group of artists  who meet every Tuesday morning to draw and paint from the  live model. The show, consisting of works by 16 people, is a  distillation of studies collected  by them, some over several  years. These studies are not for-  THE  WHARF  The Coast's Finest Dining  On the Beach, Davis Bay  885-7285  mally presented and are not  produced with any expectation  of permanence, most being  done on inexpensive newsprint.  There is no instructor at the session but rather a loose give and  take amongst the participants,  including the models.  As artist Maurice Spira says,  "Now as in antiquity, working  from live models builds a  graphic vocabulary that can  become the foundation for our  personal artistic expression and  avail us of a deeper, richer appreciation of nature in  general."  The show includes works by  the following artists: Roy  Lewis, Chris Pratt, Verity Pur-  dy, Debbie Sawchuk, Vikki  Lawrence, Ursula Fritsch, Ann  Tarnowski, Robert Jack, Nena  Braathen, Maurice Spira, Pat  Chamberlin, Susan Baggio,  Jane Degnan, Don Hopkins,  Alex Baggio and Bob Wotton.

School Gym on ;  Sat., Feb. 7, 8 pm |  proceeds to the Festival of the Written Arts  by Peter Trower  At exactly 8:15 am, the end  comes. Hurtling down another  incline, the train hits another  sharp curve between two  trestles. Three more coal cars  break free, slamming into the  rocks on the upper side. The  rest of the runaway jumps the  tracks at last and tumbles  ponderously down the embankment in a chaos of squealing  metal and rending wood. It hits  the bottom of the gorge with a  thunderous crash that echoes  and re-echoes through the  valley.  Almost immediately, the  tangled wreckage catches alight,  sparked by embers from the  firebox; fuelled by the remaining coal cars and spilled tank of  oil. It burns with a terrible  ferocity. The cargo of hides catches fire and a cloud of black;  evil smelling smoke goes coiling  up the sky. But more than  animal skins are burning in the  inferno. For Bob Marks and the  rest it has become a funeral  pyre, a grim crematorium.  By the time Tony Rascalla  and his section crew arrive on  the scene from Jessica, the fire  is raging furiously. It has spread  from the train to the surrounding trees and the nearby trestle  is blazing like a torch. There is  nothing they can do but stand  and watch. There are obviously  no survivors.  A rescue train hs been dispatched from Merrit (the line to  Hope has been torn out by the  crash). By the time the relief  crew arrives, accompanied by  several Provincial Police officers and railroad officials, the  savage fire has burned itself out.  The charred and ruined trestle provides a prophetic, skeletal  backdrop to the disaster,  wreck itself, surprisingly little is  left. Virtually everything combustible has been reduced to  ashes by the intense heat.  Blackened wheels and twisted  frames are all that remain of the  30 odd cars. The lead and zinc  has melted and hardened again  into metal rivers and grotesque :.  spontaneous sculptures. -!LX*.  Part of an unidentified body.,^  is found imbedded in lead. A-  careful search of the ashes produces only a few pitiful possessions and several small piles of  blackened, nameless bones. Of  all the men and boys who went 4  down with the train, only Bob  Marks is positively identified by  means of his wedding ring.  The only survivor of the  crash is an inanimate one,  Engine 3401. Thrown clear Of  the main wreck, it has survived ;  the holocaust virtually intact. It  will later be salvaged and after  extensive repairs, put back in  service.  On September 21, 1926, a  coroner's inquiry into the  Jessica Wreck was held at Mer-  ritt. All the men who were in  any way connected with the accident, give evidence. They include Ray Letts, Smoky Clapperton, Bob Barwick, Bill  Osborne and Tony Rascalla.  They recount essentially the  same facts that have already  been related.  The matter of the young fruit  pickers is dealt with in some  detail. Five separate witnesses  testify that there were at least  seven people riding the train  besides the crew. The final probable death toll is set at 11.  Three of the dead boys are  generally assumed to have been  Vancouver residents Walter  Draginda, Bert Walton and  Ralph Racklyeft. They were  known to have been in the area  and Walton and Racklyeft were  actually seen on the train.

No exact cause for the accident is ever determined. It is  agreed that the loss of the air on  Marks' locomotive triggered the  disaster. But the reason for the  air loss cannot be pinned down.  The final results of the inquest are basically inconclusive.  Because of the almost total  destruction of evidence, no clear  finding is possible.  A subsequent investigation by  the Board of Railway Commissioners comes up equally empty  handed. Oddly enough, the  Board sets the death total at  four, totally discounting extensive eye-witness evidence to the  contrary. It is difficult not to  conjecture that fear of possible  damage suits might have had  something to do with this seeming disregard for the facts.  One ironic point was brought  out at the inquires. Had the  train somehow managed to  negotiate the curve between the  trestles, it might well have  stayed on the tracks and ridden  safely down to flat ground. The  track was relatively straight and  the grade, much less extreme  beyond this point.  The findings can have been of  small consolation to Mrs. Bob  Marks, a poignant figure at  both hearings. Twice in two  years, she had been widowed by  the Kettle Valley Railroad.  A lost disaster in a lost year.  But progress has erased the last  traces of that epic calamity.  Buried under 10 thousand tonnes of fill, the Jessica Train  Wreck and its tragic victims, lie  locked in the past irrevocably.

See adjacent review.  ���John Burnside photo  Cameron delights  at Arts Centre  Driftwood II  Coast News, January 26,1986  11.  by Colleen Elson  by Jennifer Baichwal  Anne Cameron read and  spoke to a swelled, rapt audience of 60 or so at the Arts  Centre on Friday. Sketches  from the Slice of Life exhibition  covered the walls in accompaniment to a compelling few hours  of Northwest Coast mythology,  poetry, childhood tales and exceptional storytelling.  What is remarkable about her  work is that while she is uncompromising in a sometimes bleak  portrayal of those who have little choice, the glaring injustices  of our society most manage to  turn a comfortable eye from,  she is possessed of a great sense  of beauty that gives her voice  force and wisdom and makes  her audience sit up and listen.  "The world is full of magic,"  she was told once, and tells us.  "It's everywhere."  Her language is immediately  engaging because she uses ordinary expression to describe  extraordinary circumstances in  every day life. She tells of a  woman with an emply'basket in'  the supermarket staring at  mounds of imported fruit while  her husband spends the day  with one beer in the bar because  there is no work, anywhere. Of  a 14 year old, third generation  welfare recipient who is made  pregnant by an older man and  refused abortion by the smug  hospital committee. And of an  Indian girl who becomes Queen  Library  meeting  At the annual general meeting of the Gibsons Public Library Association held January  19 in the library, Dr. R.  Woodsworth . was elected a  Director to fill a vacancy on the  Board.  The library had a successful  year with memberships increasing by 367 of which 249 were in  the children's section. Circulation increased by 5009 in the  adult and 3373 in the children's  section.  It is interesting to note that an  increasing number of children  are using the reference section  for their school projects. Use of  juvenile non-fiction has more  than trebled in the last four  years:  The library now has a book  stock of over 14,000 and a  membership of 1291. It operates  with one paid part-time  employee plus 20 to 25  volunteers who, last year provided 2900 hours of work. Funding, apart from book grants  from the provincial government  is provided by the Town of Gibsons and the Sunshine Coast  Regional District, $5000 and  $1300 respectively in 1986.  Approximately 60 per cent of  library members reside outside  the Town of Gibsons. The  library is now authorized to give  tax exempt receipts for donations of which it received $1400  during the year.  The Sunshine Coast Regional  District has authorized a  feasibility study to determine  whether a Regional Library  system should be instituted in  place of the present operation in  Sechelt, Gibsons, Roberts  Creek and Pender Harbour. No  report has been received to date.  Mother to her village too early  because everyone else has been  killed by smallpox brought by  the explorers to the New World.  She spoke of squatters in  London and compared us to  them, asking the largely white  middle class audience when we  were going to start paying rent.  Her writing comes also from  a strong feminist position  without lapsing into preaching  or lecture. Her narrators are  female and the women characters are full and unabashed in a  clear matriarchy.  Anne Cameron has been  lauded for her work. She is a  writer who can be credited not  only with carrying a torch for  those who often have no voice,  but with brandishing it, thrusting it close to her audience until  they want to do something  about the heat. Her exploration  and preserving of Indian myth  is a contribution to the rich  cultural heritage and history of  the West Coast.  Most importantly, however,  she has one quality that leaps to  light the moment you open a  book or see a production or  hear her read; she knows how to  tell a story. The vision of her  writing coupled with an  animated reading voice made  for an uplifting experience Friday.  Her latest work, Dzelarhons,  is published by Harbour Publishing and can be found in local  bookstores.  Yes, 9 times 2 still equals 18,  but in the case of Driftwood IPs  latest production, it equals 18  characters introduced to us in  nine sketches written and  directed by Betty Keller.  Keller is known to us as the  author of several biographies.  Her most recent book, On the  Shady Side was an irreverant  look at early Vancouver and  demonstrated the same ability  we see here in 9 times 2, the  ability to get to the core of people. We see characters that are  funny yet absurd, hilarious yet  touching. The book of plays  from which these sketches are  taken, Trick Doors, is a  favourite of drama teachers.  Driftwood II 's ensemble*  group consisted of five men and  four women who moved from  one characterization to another  with great aplomb. Fran Burnside, for example, was a coy yet  designing Japanese concubine  one moment, an old, argumentative lady the next, and a cool-  headed paleontologist the next.  Sandie McGinnis was equally  versatile. Both actresses instilled  each of their characters with  distinctive personalities.  Nest Lewis deserves a special  mention for her part in Trick  Doors. What a plum of a role!  Lewis had the audience totally  absorbed and totally sympathetic from the moment of  her first entrance.  The fourth female member of  the group, Arline Collins, gave  us a Sadie of Sadie's Diner that  you would not want to cross.  Of the men, newcomer Alan  Young gave a hilarious characterization of a reporter from  "The Daily Gruff sniffing out,  and finally acting out, a  reported bank robbery. Young  is a gem.  Other newcomers, William  Austin and Matthew Austin  made   valuable   contributions.  Ken Collins, after a  tremulous beginning, gained  more confidence and gave some  fine comic touches to the evening. Terry Weatherill's brief appearance made us wonder why  he was not used more.  There were three small points  that detracted from Thursday's  performance. The first sketch  needed extensive prompting and  this member of the audience  found herself sitting on the edge  of the seat with her fingers  crossed.  Another distraction came  when the backstage crew could  be heard whispering to each  other during Sophie. Finally,  when the "front door" was  opened in Tea Party it revealed  the props in readiness for  another sketch, and the involvement and illusion were temporarily interrupted. These are  small points, but important  from the audience's point of  view.  Driftwood II has performed  in many locations. Roberts  Creek Hall was actually an ideal  location for this type of theatre.  We enjoyed a cosy closeness to  the characters, many of whom  reminded us of people we have  known. The accoustics in the  hall were good and even the  softest voices could be heard  clearly.  The set was spare but very  adequate, and the entire space  was used effectively as the action moved from one sketch to  another.  Driftwood II continues their  extensive reputation for good  theatre. Coming up next, Bus  Stop. Watch this paper for  details.

Now I regret the times  I've rushed around making dinner before I headed out to  meet friends.  The menu consists of the usual standard snacks under  the heading 'Appetizers'. Here you find garlic chicken  wings, barbecued chicken strips, potato skins, etc.  However, the other side has a selection called 'Starters'  which includes French onion soup with garlic toast, side  salad with Cedar's dressing or salmon salad.  Being hungry, I perused the main courses for the first  time and was surprised to find Quiche Lorraine offered, as  well as various sandwiches, a Cedar's burger and fish and  chips.  My friend settled on garlic chicken wings as an appetizer  and the daily special, sweet and sour spareribs on rice. I  chose the steak sandwich which came with salad and onion  rings for only $5.50.  My salad was served in advance so that I could eat while  my friend enjoyed his appetizer. I've never been a big salad  eater, but the "special Cedar's dressing" was so good that  I tried to coax the recipe out of the waitress to no avail. My  friend's chicken wings smelled delicious, and although he  said he prefers them crispier, the bites I snuck were  perfect.  The main course arrived and I thoroughly enjoyed every  bite of the thick steak sandwich, pleased to discover that  they shunned the skinny little dinner steaks so often served. This was thick and very tasty. The large ribs were served in tomato sauce on a bed of rice "cooked to  perfection."  Things were going so well that we decided to try a couple of the coffee warmers for dessert. I was curious about  the "secret blend of three liquors" in the Cedar's coffee so  I ordered that. It was a delightful choice that warmed the  spirit as well as the body. I would highly recommend it to  take any kind of chill off the evening.

Suncoast Breakers Old Timers distinguished themselves with some spirited hockey in Victoria last week. See story below.  n Victoria  Old Timers show hockey class  The Suncoast Breakers  Oldtimers completed their most  successful trip to the Canadian  Oldtimers Championships in  Victoria this past weekend. One  of 86 teams entered in the  Pacific Cup, the Breakers joined teams from as far away as  Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan, Edmonton, Alberta and Anchorage, Alaska.  The Breakers found themselves in a division higher than  previous seasons, with 15 other  teams.  The local club won all three  of their round robin games to  advance.  In game one against the Delta  Sundowners, the game turned  into an extremely even match  with both teams holding leads  throughout. With just 26  seconds remaining, and clinging  to a 3-2 lead, the Sundowners  pulled their goalie and stuffed in  the equalizer. But the Breakers  roared back and Jim Gray slapped in a desperation shot by  Rod Bodmer with only 12  seconds remaining.  The next game against the  MacKenzie Esso B's would  eventually determine which  team would advance to the  finals. In a span of 10 minutes  into the game, the Breakers  found themselves down 3-0  while not being badly  outplayed. They regrouped  however and began to chip  away at the lead. Doug Smith  scoring one of his patented  'floater' change ups, and then  Pete DeBoer ripping one in  from the blue line with just four  seconds left in the half.  The second half saw the  Breakers begin to take control  and tie it up on a neat play from  Pat Cromie setting up Dave  Taylor.   Gord   Pollock   then  followed a powerplay goal by  MacKenzie to score on a fine individual short-handed effort to  tie. Jim Gray then deflected in a  pass from Rod Bodmer and Pat  LaGrandeur to get the win and  a berth in the finals.  Goalie Ed Berenstein carried  this momentum into the final  game of the round robin against  the St. Albert Rink Rats, and  nearly single-handedly won the  game in an outstanding performance in the nets, only losing  his shutout with seconds remaining with two men short.  Final score, 4-1 with Gord  Pollock for a pair and Brett  McGillivray and Rod Bodmer  supplying the offense in a span  of one minute and 18 seconds.  Having swept their round  robin, the Breakers moved into  the final round against the  South Delta Old Stylers, a team  they had previously played and  been trounced by. The game  started off like it wouid be a  rout, with South Delta scoring  two quick goals. But the  Breakers again regrouped and  finished the half up 3-2.  Breaker goals by Pat  LaGrandeur, Brett McGillivray  and Rod Bodmer again staked  the locals to a thin lead which  was short-lived as South Delta  stormed back into the second to  tie it early. Bodmer then scored  his second of the game on a  wicked shot from the slot, only  to have the Old Stylers reply  shortly after to tie it again.  With only five minutes remaining, the Breakers took a  costly penalty that turned the  tide, as South Delta stuffed in  their fifth. In a span of two  minutes and 12 seconds the  South Delta Club banged in  three more goals to break open  what for all intents and pur  poses was a one goal game.  Final score 8-4, and while  disheartened with the Pacific  Cup Bronze medal Hats, the  Breakers were in total agreement that the tournament as a  whole was a tremendous success,  with four truly great and competitive hockey games.  Certainly a bright spot had to  be the fine team play that the  club exhibited, as most of the     opposition had at least one better unit of players, but the team  concept and coaching seemed to  prevail. Another bright spot  was the great fan support by  wives, friends and kids of the  Breakers, and the innaugura-  tion of the 'Suncoast Ripple' (a  small arena 'wave').  Thanks fans, we'll see you  again at the Suncoast Cup in  March.  Indiana Mark says:  ...put some adventure in your life!

February Heart Month  February is Heart Month and  starting February 1, thousands  of volunteers working for the  B.C. Heart Foundation will be  knocking on doors throughout  B.C. and the Yukon asking for  donations to fight heart disease,  Canada's number one killer.  David MacDonald, President  of Shoppers Drug Mart and  Chairman for the 1987 Heart  Fund Drive, says B.C. Heart  has a solid reputation for keeping its campaign and adminstra-  tion expenses to a minimum; a  fact which enables the Foundation to direct a high percentage  of the money it receives (86  cents of every dollar) to research  and education programs designed to eliminate heart disease.  He points out that since 1949,  when the B.C. Heart Foundation began its fund raising efforts, the overall death rate  from heart and blood vessel  disease for people under 65 has  dropped 34 per cent. He also  notes that death from heart attack has dropped 25 per cent  and stroke, 47 per cent in the  last few years alone.  As Campaign Chairman,  MacDonald is challenging B.C.  and Yukon residents to mark  February for Heart Month by  making a personal commitment  to fight heart disease.  He urges them to decide now  what they will give when their  Heart Fund canvasser calls and  emphasizes that whatever people choose to donate, "A gift  which goes to support heart  research and education is a gift  that counts."

Olfert  885-4568  Canfor Products in Port Mellon  in 1983 his working career took  him all over the world. Working  as a heavy-duty mechanic he  stopped for several years at a  time in Libya (three times),  Sumatra, Inuvik, the Bougan-  ville Islands in the South Seas,  Australia (Queensland and Tasmania) and New Guinea. (It  was while he was stationed in  Tasmania that he met Kay  Brock, born in New Guinea.)  Ralph's career took him around  the world eight times.  In 1973 they moved to Port  Mellon and two years later  moved to Langdale. During the  14 years that Ralph lived here  on the Coast he made many,  many friends. He is remembered for his willingness to help  at any time and under any circumstances, his humour and his  determination to work despite  very uncomfortable health problems. He came to the rescue of  his friends at any hour with no  thought of himself. He was a  .very: unselfish man, ���and ��� his  jovial personality endeared him  to all. He was a very special  man.  Ralph loved the children in  the neighbourhood and they  loved him. Being hard of hearing didn't stop him from chatting with them as they passed  by. They will miss his friendly  joking.  While Brock was in Langdale  Elementary School, both Ralph  and Kay volunteered, many  hours of support to the many  activities in the school. They  continued to support the school  even after Brock graduated. To  honour Ralph's appreciation of  the school and his love for the  children, a special fund is being  set up to purchase library books  in his memory. A special insert  will be placed in these books  with his name inscribed.  We extend our sympathy to  Kay and Brock and the other  members of his family, Sylvia,  Ralph and Anna. Details will be  published later regarding a  memorial service which is being  planned for Easter Monday.  For those wishing to join the  children in the school and his  neighbours in purchasing the  library books in his memory,  you may do so by sending your  donation to: Mr. James Davidson, Principal, Langdale Elementary School, Box 280, Gibsons, B.C. VON 1V0.  Cheques to be made out to:  Mr. J. Davidson - Jaeck Library  Fund. Receipts will be issued.  Langdale is not the same  without you, Ralph. We miss  you.  Give...  to the  Hearty  Fund.Q?

One hundred years of  ecumenical prayer and action  will be celebrated around the  world on March 6, when World  Day of Prayer marks its centennial. People of all major  denominations in 170 countries  and regions will gather on that  day to pray for global concerns.  This event will continue a  tradition that began in 1887.  The poverty and miserable living conditions of immigrant,  families touched the heart of  . Mary Ellen James of Brooklyn,  New York. She called for a national day of prayer and action.  Since then the movement has  spread around the world and on  the first Friday of March each  year people gather to pray for  peace and justice.  This world prayer movement  is unique in its leadership. From  the beginning lay women have  written and organized the service in local communities. In  Canada alone over 3000 services  will be held across the country.  In this community the service  will be held at the United  Church of Canada, Truman  Road, on March 6.  On the same day, people will  be gathering in Africa, Asia,  Latin America, the Middle  East, Europe and the Pacific  Islands. It is a time to be linked  with others around the world on  a specific day praying for the  same issues and hopes. Services  are translated into thousands of  languages and dialects.  Offerings are used for social  service projects and education  programs both nationally and  internationally. In Korea, aid  has been given to A-bomb victims and to a half-way house for  women prisoners. In Sudan, a  school for the blind is supported; Sweden provided  scholarships for women in  developing countries. New  Zealand has sponsored medical  aid to Guatemala, and Argentina has set up soup kitchens for  children.  In Canada, World Day of  Prayer   is   sponsored   by  .'.

The "Firehall Theatre" project has already received much  appreciated support for coast  residents, and at the beginning  of this new and auspicious year,  we would like to take this opportunity to publicly thank  those who have already made  financial contributions and who  have pledged dollars, goods and  services to the project.  It is your concrete show of  support which has given our  board of directors the confidence to undertake the major  steps now necessary, and it will  be through the like support of  your friends and neighbours  that we will succeed.  Since we last printed a list of  contributors in this newspaper,  the following people have sent  us pledges and donations, and  we sincerely thank them and ask  for their continued moral support and encouragement:  Dorothy Vetterli, Mary L.  Black, Sue and Steve Sleep,  Barbara Corbett, Mrs. Cham-  berlin, Betty Turnbull, Bryan  Rubin, Helen Weinhandl, DM  Hopkins, Leslie Ellert, GM  Steel, Karin Jordan, Mrs. CF  Rorke, Alice Macaulay, Jean  Calder, Janice Edmonds, Mr. &  Mrs. A.

Stevens, Vern & Marilyn Gies-  brecht, Sharon Craig, Shawn  Cardinall, Lyn & Yvette Kinsey,  Brad Benson, Mrs. Dorothy  Nairne, Dana Sheehan, and  Brett & Carol McGillivray.  We wish to make special  mention of the generosity of the  late Mrs. Geraldine Winram of  Roberts Creek, who so thoughtfully bequeathed $20,000 to our  foundation for this project.  We thank you, one and all,  and pledge in return to do  everything necessary to make  the Firehall Theatre "a dream  come true".  Fran Burnside  Treasurer  Box 683  Gibsons, B.C.

The people who operate the  SPCA are all volunteers just as  we are. There are people who  man the phones, those who are  out in the field (inspectors),  others who look after the dogs  and cats when lost or found.  These are just a few of the  many, many people who are  willing to give up some of their  time to help look after animals  who need a home or have  strayed away from their owners,  and last but definitely not least  or forgotten, are the animals  that are abused.  It is very interesting working  with the SPCA. You never  know when or what you will be  called on to do. For example,  11:30 at night a call from the  trailer park regarding a 300  pound pig; another time is was a  cow running loose, or someone  out walking their dog finds a  cardboard box dumped in a  field. It may contain kittens or  puppies that some "nice" person has left there to die a slow,  painful death.  So just remember that the  SPCA operates on a shoe-string  budget based on your donations. So if you can help us out,  please send your donation to:  BCSPCA, Sunshine Coast  Branch, Box 2094, Sechelt,  B.C. VON 3A0.  Please be sure to put on your  cheque BCSPCA Sunshine  Coast Branch because if you  just put SPCA on your cheque  the money goes to the head office and not to us on the Coast.  Donations made to the SPCA  are tax deductible so ask for a  receipt. We will be more than  glad to make one out for you.  Please help.

The President  B.C. Ferry Corporation  Victoria, B.C.  Dear Sir:  This letter is written in support of the Senior Citizens'  Association of B.C., Branch 69,  Sechelt, B.C., who have written  to you regarding the lack of  ferry service between 8:30 am  and 12:25 pm on the Sunshine  Coast.  We are not as yet senior  citizens but we can certainly appreciate the importance of this  problem to older persons who  really need the 10:30 am sailing.  It is not always possible to  schedule medical appointments  or treatments at your own convenience. It is inconceivable that  a person in Pender Harbour  must leave home by 7 am  regardless of the fact that they  may not have an appointment  on the Lower Mainland until  11, 12 or 1 pm.  People do attend funerals,  and they try to attend lectures,  or make connections for planes  or trains and without the 10:30  am sailing it is extremely difficult.  Did it ever occur to the  powers that be that persons on  this peninsula can't even arrange a luncheon appointment  without making it an all day excursion? This is not adequate  service and it's time a little more  thought was given to remedy  this situation.  Regarding the present system  of Ferry Ticket Books, we are  fortunate in that we can take  advantage of the savings by purchasing these books. However,  we know of many people who  cannot afford to put out $90 for  vehicle, driver and one passenger, and this is another instance  where those who can least afford it, pay the most.  I am sure you have heard  from many other taxpaying  residents in this regard and I'm  hopeful that an effort will be  made to re-instate this sailing  and make life a little easier for  commuters on this side of the  water.

Custom Packing, Storage, Local & Long Distance Moving  HWY.101.GIBS0MS ZtTcTcoT���    886-2664  At Gibsons Council meeting  last week, a motion introduced  by Alderman Bob Maxwell and  seconded by Alderman Norm  Peterson to endorse the recent  appointment of Maurice Egan  as chairman of the Regional  District's Economic Development Commission (EDC) was  approved.  A second request from Mr.  David Atlee to deal with the  stand of trees on municipal land  at the corner of Cochrane and  Franklin Roads led council to  decide to prepare a policy for  the removal or topping of trees  on municipal property. Mr. At-  lee's first request to remove all  trees was declined by council.  His second request to remove or  top one tall cedar has been  referred to the planning committee.  A letter from the Gibsons  Marina, announcing its 1987  launching ramp and dry land  storage rates was referred to the  planning committee for its  recommendation. The annual  recreational launching ramp fee  had been reduced 15 per cent to  $68.  Alderman Maxwell reported  that he has been appointed by  the EDC to attend a conference  on "New Needs for Shelter for  Seniors in Small  Communities".  The building permit fee for  the Jack and Jill Preschool was  waived by council. A precedent  for this had been set in the past  for the Kinsmen Club.  Under old business, Alderman Gerry Dixon stated that the  requests for six month extensions for temporary business  licenses could not be approved  under the existing by-laws.  Alderman Peterson stated that  the situation created by the issuing of temporary licenses was  "not good", and that the bylaw which allowed them has  now been amended so they will  not occur again.

Dora Glover, Dr. Hans W.  Behrisch and Steve Marsh, are  members of and representated  the association. Dora Glover  manages the association; Dr.  Behrisch is a biologist and is  connected with Fruit of the Sea  Ocean Farms Incorporated;  Steve Marsh works for the Sunshine Coast Aquaculture  Resource Centre.  The main purpose of the  meeting was to inform the  newspapers and general public  that the Sunshine Coast  Aquaculture Association is  there to provide an avenue of  access to the industry's response  and position on areas concerning aquaculture on the Sunshine  Coast.  The Sunshine Coast  Aquaculture Association is the  largest of its kind with 115  members from all aspects of the  fishing, shell fish and fish farm  community.  Members of the association  feel that there is a need for better communications and that  "perhaps the media has been a  bit one-sided."  A topic of discussion, concerning waste products beneath the  fish pens was commented on by  Dr. Behrisch: "The biggest  source of potential waste comes  from excess feed. Improvements in the weight and  density of feed allow the fish to  eat before excess sinks to the  bottom.  Vedo's lease request  causes worry  Sechelt District Council dealt  with a standard Crown Land  lease referral at last week's  council meeting, but the limitations on the approval process  became evident during the ensuing discussion. The applicaiton  by Oddvin Vedo is for 5.4 hectares in the Wilson Creek area,  but the parcel runs right down  the centre of someone else's  lease.  Alderman Joyce Kolibas attempted to bring up the concerns of neighbouring lease,  holders, but Mayor Bud Koch  pointed out that the Ministry of  Forests and Lands only permits  them to state whether they have  any objections to the land being  used for agricultural purposes.  Jim Hopkins, who holds the  title to the lease adjoining the  parcel which Vedo has applied  for, told the Coast News that no  one objects to the land being used for those purposes. The objections have to do with the applicant.  According to Hopkins, Vedo  used the land several years ago  to graze cattle, before he had  applied for the lease. During the  time he used the property, there  was a continuous problem of his  cattle wandering on to other  peoples' pastures. Gates were  left open and Hopkins' own  cattle ended up straying.  Oddvin Vedo was eventually  forced to remove his livestock  after complaints by neighbours.  It was at this time, or shortly  afterwards, that Vedo applied  for title to the lease.  Hopkins said he has made his  protests known to the Ministry  of Forests and Lands, who have  the final power to approve or  deny the application.  Sechelt   Council   voted   to  Pollock  sees no  problem  Sechelt's Clerk-Administrator Malcolm Shanks presented a  report by By-law Enforcement  Officer Al Pollock, on Henry  Hall's herring pen operation at  last week's Sechelt Council  meeting.  The report stated that  Pollock had visited the site and  described what he had seen.  This included screens for the  ponds, cables and two spots  where debris had been burned  leaving a set of bed springs and  some wire and cable.  "In my opinion, Mr. Hall's  premises above the high water  mark does not warrant prosecution," he concluded.  Nancy MacLarty, who made  the original complaint to council, was in attendance when  Pollock's report was read and  was clearly unhappy with it.  Her comments prompted Alderman Anne Langdon to question  why the report didn't mention  the houseboat located on the  property.  Shanks explained that when  the report was written, Pollock  didn't have a copy of the letter,  sent under his name to the  owners of the lease, in which  specific items of concern were  listed. In fact, the by-law enforcement officer had only seen  the letter, dated December 3,  1986, that morning (January  21).  The motion was passed to instruct the by-law enforcement  officer "to do whatever is  necessary to ensure that Mr.  Hall conforms to the by-law by  4 pm Friday afternoon." This  will involve the removal of some  cable, wire and the bed springs.  notify the ministry that they  have no objections to the proposed land use.  "Site location is very important. Faster tidal waters keeps  the bottom very clean. Where  possible, according to depth,  divers are sent down on a  regular basis to inspect the  ocean floor. Government agencies, such as Fisheries and  Oceans, inspect all fish farm  sites in the Sunshine Coast area.  "Fish farmers do not want  waste, it does not make good  economic sense. It is my  understanding that Scantech  Resources is initiating plans to  utilize a digester to convert fish  waste into useful by-products."  Representatives of the  ; association feel that the 'caught'  fish industry and the 'farmed'  fish industry should be able to  exist in economic harmony. Dr.  Behrisch says there are 32 fish  farms in the Sunshine Coast  area, 73 in B.C. Sixteen are in  Sechelt and Salmon Inlet, of  which eight are in the 'approval'  production stage.  Approximately 500 leases are  being held up by the recent  moratorium on applications.  The members of the Sunshine  Coast Aquaculture Association  maintain a positive attitude  towards the Gillespie Inquiry  and feel that the main problems  regarding the fish farm industry  rest with a lot of mis-information and large groups of people who do not want change.  Steve Marsh, when asked  about navigational problems  for commercial and tourist  water traffic replied, "I will*  look into what is required by  law to adequately mark the fish  pen sites."  Later in the day, by phone,  Mr. Marsh informed the Coast  News that each fish pen site is  treated individually. Canadian  Coast Guard staff inspect the  fish pen sites and recommend  that a flashing yellow light be  positioned at the outermost end  of the obstruction, where applicable, in high use areas. All  sites are marked by buoys with  reflective tape to make them  easier to see at night.  At present the Ministry of  Agriculture and Fisheries is the  co-ordinating body between the  Aquaculture Industry and  groups concerned with the  economy and environment.
