Newly elected Chief Tom  Paul repeated the oath of office  and was followed by returning  council members Lloyd Jeffries,  Warren Paull, and Benedict  Pierre.

I intend to do my best to  ���please the people."  ) The former chief, Stan Dix-  lon, spoke to the assembly of the  struggle to come, pointing out  that there is still much to do  before self-government for the  Sechelt Indian District (SID) is  achieved.  The announcement, later in  ^the festivities, that the provincial minister in charge of  ���.negotiations with the SID has  been changed was a repeat of  the stumbling blocks that the  band ran into with the federal  government prior to the passage  of BUI C-93.  In an interview with the  Coast News last week, Tom  Paul traced the often painful  path that past chiefs and councillors have followed in the attempt to gain control over the  affairs of the band.  Early in the 1970's, Chief  Henry Paull, father of the cur-  /rent^jsj^  began working on the idea of  self-government with Band  Manager Clarence Joe Sr., who  took the issue of self-  determination for Canadian  native people before the United  Nations Human Rights Committee.  With Henry Paull's sudden  death, Ted Dixon took up the  battle, first as chief for one  term, and then as a councillor  and band administrator working closely with Chief Calvin  Craigan and council members  Stan Dixon, Tom Paul and  Gilbert Joe.  By 1977, the Sechelt Indian  Band had gone as far as it could  go in gaining control under the  Indian Act. In 1981, the band  appealed to the Canadian  Human Rights Commission to  help them escape from the  jurisdiction of the Department  of Indian Affairs (DIA).  Shortly  after  that  historic   ;  event,   the   band   suffered  *  another major tragedy when  Ted Dixon died in a motor vehicle accident.     ���   K \  :X>Stdn^wM#b^oyOT as chief ���<& *.  after the he*t election. -Over  the   years   we   had   constant  changes  in  the  ministers  in  charge of the DIA and Stan  would have to go back and start  from square one," Tom Paul  recalled.    "It   was   his   aggressiveness   and   constant  pushing that got us through  that."  In actual fact, by the time Bill  C-93 was passed last year, the  band had dealt with six different ministers.  There is still a final section of  the constitution to be legislated  in Ottawa. That is currently be  ing worked on and Chief Paul  expects it to be final by July.  The necessary provincial  legislation is now undergoing its  seventh draft and the change in  the government representative  could cause further delay.  Chief Paul remains optimistic. "Hopefully by the end  of 1987 we'll have all the legislation in place to truly be self-  governing."  MP Ray Skelly is promising a  report within a week from Ottawa after being shocked at the  hazardous condition of Gibsons  Wharf.  Skelly was taken on a tour of  the wharfhead by Alderman  Norm Peterson and Gibsons  Works Superintendent Bob  Marchant during a recent visit  to the Sunshine Coast. The condition of the wharf had recently  been brought to council's attention by Captain W.Y. Higgs.  Among the hazardous situations identified by Skelly was an  open gate on the chain link  fence around the gasoline pumping station. The steel cover  over the coupling valves was  unlocked and when the MP  opened a valve to inspect the  coupling, residue gasoline from  the pipe poured onto him.  The MP noted that had he  been smoking at the time he  could have been incinerated.  Superintendent of Works,  Bob Marchant, had pictures  taken during a recent unloading  of the Shell Oil barge at the  wharf which clearly show that  there was no supervision of the  process taking place, although  such supervision is called for.  Besides the inadequate protection of the gasoline pumping  equipment, Skelly was shown  the leakage from the tanks  themselves which crosses the  seawaik.  On the other side of the  wharf from the gasoline pump  ing station, the chain link fence  which surrounds the dangerous  chemicals which are from time  to time unloaded, was unlocked. To top it off the MP was invited to contemplate the breakwater pilings on the east side of  the wharf itself which are  dangerously rotten.  Skelly pronounced himself  appalled at the hazardous con-  diton which he declared as having 'a terrible potential for fire'  and promised to take the situation up with the Ministry of  Transport on his return to Ottawa and report back without  delay.  In other council business,  Alderman Lillian Kunstler  reported that the Garibaldi  Union Board of Health will be  discussing Drug and Alcohol  Abuse Counselling on the Sunshine Coast at an upcoming  meeting on March 12.  Council also decided to improve the chronically difficult  parking situation in the lower  village by widening Gower  Point Road between Winn  Road and the Omega Parkade.  Town Planner Rob Buchan  pointed out a reporting error in  a recent issue of the Coast  News. The Elphinstone Community Plan recently approved  for Area E was in fact the  fourth such plan approved on  the Coast. Roberts Creek and  the two municipalities had  previously approved Community Plans.  Services Society launches  first-ever fund campaign  On March 28 and 29, Sunshine Coast Community Ser-  : vices will be launching their first  annual donation and member-  ; ship drive.  1; Peggy Connor, well-known  ��� on the Coast, will be Honourary  ^Chairperson for the drive.  :Peggy has served this community in many ways. She is a  Regional board director and has  Served in the past on the board  i>f Community Services.  t-' On Saturday, March 28, volunteers will be in the malls to  take memberships and donations. The following day, canvassers will be going door-to-  door.  The Community Services  Society has served this community since 1974. Although  they have a small core of  dedicated volunteers and supporters, survival has always  been a struggle. With increasing  needs in the community and  decreasing availability of funds,  particularly from government,  the need for community support  has become crucial. This drive is  the first time since its inception  that Community Services has  made a major appeal to the  community for funds.  The Sunshine Coast Regional  District, New Democratic Party, and Liberal Party have given  their support to this special  drive. The campaign is being  organized and directed by  volunteers from the board and  staff of Community Services.  Gordon Wilson will be giving a  workshop on canvassing which  promises to be quite entertaining.  The drive will end Sunday,  March 29, at the Seniors' Hall  in Sechelt. Food and refreshments will be provided  Please support this drive to  make our community a better  place to live in, either through  donations or by volunteering a  few hours of your time. Call  885-5881 to offer assistance.  Gibsons Alderman Lillian Kunstler, who is co-ordinating the town's efforts to raise funds for the Rick  Hansen Man in Motion Tour, was presented with a cheque last week by Jim Munro, Ernie Fossett and  Bill Martin of the Harmony Hall Bingo Committee. Harmony Hall had already made an earlier contribution through their Valentine's Day Raffle. _B���,d Benson photo  Peace film tonight       At meeting in Gibsons  The Sunshine Coast Peace Committee will show Hwvn "^���   ��� ��� ��� ****������ ��� ��� ^f    ��� ��� ���    "������������* ww ������ *��  The Sunshine Coast Peace Committee will show Gwyn  -Dyer's new film Harder Than it Looks at its next regular  meeting, March 9 at 7:30 pm at the Roberts Creek Elementary School Library.

Budget approved  The first budget of the Sechelt Indian District was ratified  at a meeting of band members last Thursday night. The  meeting was attended by approximately 200 people who  voted unanimous approval of the budget.  The $1.3 million budget now goes to Ottawa ensuring the  money will be deposited into the band's bank account annually for the next five years.  Peace education  The Board of School Trustees have mandated an ad hoc  committee on Peace Education to gather information to  develop policy on curriculum for the school district.

EDC tackles lengthy agenda  by John Burnside  A crowded agenda faced the  regular monthly meeting of the  regional Economic Development Commission (EDC) which  was held in Gibsons Municipal  Hall on Friday, March 6.  Among the items discussed  was the status of the industrial  site survey being undertaken,  the role of seniors in small town  economies, a report on the  selection process for the Community Futures Committee, the  possible use of fish waste from  aquaculture in the development  of a fertilizer industry on the  Sunshine Coast, a cost-benefit  analysis of the aquaculture industry, the EDC budget for  1987, and the role of the arts in  the economic sector.  Sunshine Coast Regional  Board (SCRD) Chairman Jim  Gurney reported that his information from the Department of  Lands and Forests was that the  primary agreement had been  reached in the location of the  bulk gasoline storage area, or  tank farm in the Port Mellon  area. Gurney expressed his  pleasure and surprise that the  amount of the land available  was in the hundreds, of acres  which makes it a prime factor in  the industrial site survey being  undertaken as well as locating  the bulk storage facilities.  Alderman Bob Maxwell  reported to the commission on a  seminar he had recently attended on the 'retirement industry'  and its effects on small towns.  "The retirement industry is a  prominent goal for communities all across B.C. now," Maxwell warned the commission.  "We are looking at some brisk  competition if we are to be a  centre for the industry."  Some surprise was expressed  by members of the commission  when they realized that the  Community Futures Committee  must be approved in Ottawa.  Chairman Maurice Egan explained that MPs Ray Skelly  and Mary Collins would ap  prove the final list in consultation with Community Futures  Officer Dennis Cherenko of the  Ministry of Employment and  Immigration. The names on the  list were selected and submitted  by Egan and the chairman of  the Sunshiune Coast Economic  Development Society, Barry  Wilbee.  A suggestion from local resident Jack Warne concerning the  development of a fertilizer industry was promptly acted  upon. Although commission  member Art Giroux warned  that there was simply not  enough fish waste to sustain  such an industry it was felt that  the combination of fish waste,  sawdust and sludge from the  sewage treatment facilities did  hold out possibilities and a committee was struck to follow up  the idea consisting of Warne  himself, along with Alderman  Bob Maxwell, Alderman Joyce  Kolibas, Chairman Gurney and  Art Giroux.  Please turn to page 18 Coast News, March 9,1987  An interesting article this week about the experiences of  a Sunshine Coast man who has recently spent some time in  the fascinating society of Japan. (Page two.)  The rebirth of the Japanese economy from the devastation of the Second World War is one of the most remarkable features of life in the second half of the 20th century.  Of course, the fact that the Japanese have been  restricted in the amount of military spending they were  allowed to do could be argued as a considerable factor in  their economic emergence, but aside from this their  business acumen and economic performance has given the  resources-poor crowded islands of Japan one of the  world's foremost economies.  It was interesting to read, therefor, during a recent vacation of a report made by the Japanese after a study of the  economy of the USA. In a nutshell, the report concluded  that there were some serious regional problems in the  United Staes of America and that an approach which let  'the market' take care of things would not rectify these  problems but serve to ascerbate them and weaken the  overall economy in the long run.  The Japanese study felt that, along with market forces,  some judicious development support for weakened regions  by the US federal government was mandatory for a strong  economy.  For anyone in North America to suggest a strong role  for government in the national economy is to be dismissed  as a communist or ridiculed as being behind the times.  In Canada and the US, in B.C. and in Washington,  governments are in power who see the privatisation of as  much as possible, and an almost total reliance on 'market  forces', as the way ahead.  In all of the mentioned jurisdictions the same regional  weaknesses bedevil the economy as the Japanese found in  the USA. They are saying there is an important role for  government in rectifying these disparities. The governments of Margaret Thatcher, Ronald Reagan, Brian  Mulroney and Bill Vander Zalrn say otherwise.  We'd bet on the Japanese ourselves.  5 YEARS AGO  The Madeira Park Branch of the Bank of Montreal has received one of the most prestigious  honours given by this bank, the President's Award  of Excellence. .  This particular award is given to the branch in  Canada that attains the highest personal deposit  growth for a given fiscal period. The Madeira  branch won the trophies for the 1981 fiscal year  on both the regional and national level.  10 YEARS AGO  It has been decided that a 25 metre pool is  unfeasible for this area and plans are going ahead  on a 60x24 foot bubble covered one. The decision  was reached after the village clerk, Jack Copeland  and Alderman Ted Hume informed council at last  Wednesday's meeting that a previous proposal by  Alderman Metzler for a bubble covering was practical year round.  20 YEARS AGO  Sechelt's municipal council will support a  Chamber of Commerce plea to get better traffic  conditions at the sharp turn on the Sunshine  Coast Highway at the western end of the village.  Councillor Louis Hansen suggested that if  Teredo Street, which runs directly into the  highway at that point was fixed up, then it would  do away with the sharp turn. It would also take  heavy traffic off the main street.  30 YEARS AGO  Inflation, proceeding at one half a point per  month on the consumer index and more steeply in  the capital goods field, is steadily transferring the  wealth of this country from those on fixed incomes to those who can get or vote themselves a  wage increase. The old age pensioner, the retired  teacher or civil servant, and others on fixed  salaries are viciously caught in the price squeeze.  40 YEARS AGO  Truly a boon to busy housewives is the new  'Beatty Automatic', a smooth-looking, counter  height washing machine, approximately 36 inches  high and 24 inches square, finished in white  enamel and trimmed in satin-finsihed chrome.  The new Beatty washer, which will allow  housewives to shop or do housework while  washing clothes, will soon be on display at  Sunset Hardware in Gibsons Landing.

"The formality of the  workplace and the difference in  attitudes was striking," says  English. "Here we tend to attack a project, get right onto it,  start working right away.  "There you take time to go  through formalities. You exchange cards, and you bow.  You talk about the weather, and  about the other people in your  family. And only then do you.',  start talking about the project.  "In Japan, if you sat down  and began talking about  something right away, they probably wouldn't bother with  you."  English came to appreciate  that unhurried, thoughtful approach to a problem, as he  came to appreciate many things  he encountered in his Japanese  internship.  "My thinking has changed a  lot," says the former Gibsons  resident, whose parents still live  on the Sunshine Coast. "At  first, when I encountered  something, it would seem  wrong. But once I began to  understand what was happening, it was no longer something  wrong, but something different.  "Many things seemed harsh  at first, but I learned that these  were the very things associated  with the qualities that make  Japan such a strong culture.  "They have developed values  and traditions over thousands  of years. It has given their society strengths you don't always  find in freer societies."  English admits he had problems initially with the role of  women in Japan.  "Unlike our society, where  both husband and wife are involved in the home and if both  work responsibilities are shared,  the Japanese man has no involvement in household matters. By tradition, the Japanese  woman manages the household,  in every aspect. The man  dedicates himself to his job, and  the woman to hers. Each gives  complete concentration to their  own area.  "The heavy time demands of  the workplace and the equally  heavy demands of the home  would make it very difficult for  a woman to try to combine the  two,  so after marriage, Japanese women are expected to  stay home."  English says it is not unusual  , J,q work up to J 5 hours a day,  Vsix days a week. But the long  ~hours are not onerous. "I have  never worked in such an enjoyable atmosphere."  The workday begins at 8:30  am each morning, with no  break until noon. "Everyone  lunches together and you sit  with the same people you work  with. People do everything  together. After work they enjoy  sports and recreation, and join  clubs, all within the company  framework.  "Your lifestyle revolves  around the company."  Workers under 25 are housed  in special dormitories ("Not coed dormitories like Shell House  at Simon Fraser," English adds)  and most dormitories have access to recreation facilities.  English now has a working  knowledge of Japanese, but  looks forward to learning more.  "I'd like to go back. Sony is an  exciting place to work. They  brought in several foreign  students, which added a lot of  stimulus to the department and  provided many opportunities  for students to become really involved in some interesting projects.  "Once you become a member  of the group, there is a lot of  support, and things that are important to you become impor  tant to them too," English  recalls. "During my last few  days, I had to give a presentation in front of all my  managers, and at the same time,  write a paper for engineering  science. I stayed up all night  working and one of my coworkers stayed up all night as  well, just to keep me  company."  One shared pleasure was  English's music. "Japanese enjoy Chopin and Beethoven. I  studied piano for years and at  home, I teach classical piano.  Several times I was able to play  for them, and they really enjoyed it."  The  winner  of a  Natural  Science and Engineering  Research Council scholarship,  English is now concentrating on  his choice of a graduate school.  "Sony asked me to contact  them after graduation so there  is a definite possibility I could  return. I will certainly go back  to visit. I want to be able to  communicate a little better next  time, so I am continuing  Japanese language lessons.  "Like the Japanese way of  life, it is very formal and traditional, and puts a great deal of  stress on politeness. Learning to  speak properly helped make it  easy for me to get along with  my co-workers and friends".  The Relief Case  / have slept in your lousy flop-joints,  I have eaten your greasy stew.  I have told the chief, my tale of grief,  'Twas all that I could do.  I am one of the many thousands  That are tossed in the great abyss,  Like drift that rides on the flowing tides  I have drifted down on this.  I have heard the boss's answer  When I asked him for a place,  And I kept right on, till my strength was gone,  And the Wolf looked in my face.  Then I shambled down to the "office,"  Where the hand-outs grow on trees,  Where the big fat chief doles out relief  And takes your pedigrees.  And you come away embittered,  Degraded, and feeling sad.  You feel like a bum, as you take their crumb,  And you've given the last you had.  You have given your all, your self-respect,  For a morsel to fill your guts,  And your weary feet on the city street,  Plod on in the same old ruts.  E. St. C. Muir  Maryahne's Viewpoint  The coming of the European starling  by Maryanne West  Did you know that last Friday, March 6, was the 97th anniversary of the arrival in North  America of the European starling?  How odd that we owe this  bird, which has become such a  universal pest, to William  Shakespeare, the bard of Avon.  We humans, being the odd  contradictory folk we are, leave  our homelands full of desire to  find greener pastures, or to see  what it looks like on the other  side of the mountain, and once  there we're filled with nostalgia  for home. We don't go back but  we send back for plants and  animals of which we have such  fond memories.  But of all the reasons for  transplanting flora and fauna  the story of the starling must be  one of the strangest.  It seems that one Eugene  Schiefflin of New York, whose  name suggests he came from  Dutch stock, was a Shakespearean scholar and an admirer of the Bard. He came up  with this curious idea that to encourage the study of Shakespeare's plays and sonnets in  America he would import every  animal mentioned in those  words.  How successful he was I  don't know, Shakespeare's  plays are full of vivid and colourful references to the denizens  of the natural world. But his  starling project has been more  successful that he could possibly  imagine. That is, as far as the  spread of starlings goes,  whether or not we generally  connect them with literature is  doubtful.  One might have expected the  80 birds which were released on  March 6, 1890 in Central Park,  New York, to have had little  chance to compete with the  huge flocks of North American  blackbirds and grackles, but in  a few years they had spread out  over the neighbouring counties,  and now are common from  Texas to Canada, coast to  coast, and how far north they  can penetrate remains to be  seen.  The Shakespearean reference  to starlings comes in Henry IV,  Part I. King Henry has just  received the bad news that the  Earl of March, Edmund Mortimer has been captured by his  Welsh foe Owen Glendower.  Hotspur, Henry Percy, the impetuous son of the Earl of Northumberland, fresh from the  battle of Holmedon where he  has taken some important Scots  prisoners, is angered by King's  refusal to ransom Mortimer,  and refuses to give up his  prisoners to the King.  Having failed to make any  impression on the King,  Hotspur continues to rant on to  his father and uncle about what  he considers an injustice.  "He said he would not ransom Mortimer;  Forbade my tongue to speak  of Mortimer;  But I will find him when he  lies asleep,  And in his ear I'll holla Mortimer.  I'll have a starling shall be  taught to speak,  Nothing but Mortimer, and  give it him,  To keep his anger still in motion."  I'm not sure that this literary  connection will make the starling any more welcome. I'm  afraid I shall continue to chase  them away from the bird feeder,  not because I wouldn't welcome  a couple, but I know that if the  advance guard of two or three  birds isn't repelled, before I can  turn round there'll be a whole  flock driving out the juncos,  towhees and song sparrows. mi'Miii iuijiii��wh����� mW  Coast News, March 9,1987  Editor:  I wish to express my complete  disapproval and extreme concern at the school board's decision to relocate the French Immersion program at Davis Bay.  The immediate result of this  decision, I feel, will be:  1) To drastically decrease the  number of children registered  for Grade 1 (many parents being unwilling to allow their five  or six year old to be bussed for  up to an hour in a 'seatbeltless  old schoolbus', along our winding, and quite often slippery,  roads).  2) To potentially decrease the  Grade   2   enrollment.   Some  parents with children currently  enrolled in French Immersion  having expressed their intention  of withdrawing their child.  My main concern is what the  children who remain in the program are being bussed to  (assuming bussing is provided).  The decline in registration will  reduce the number of Grade 1  classes from two, with a class  size of 25 or 26, to one class  with a class size probably over  30.  The quality of education  these children will receive will be  far below the excellent standard  being maintained at the present  locations.  The condition of the Davis  Bay School concerns me. Anew  facility was built for the Davis  Bay children rather than  renovate the old school. If it  wasn't good enough to renovate  before the new facility was  built, why is it good enough to  renovate now?  If the program in Gibsons  can no longer be accommodated at Gibsons Elementary  School, the Alternate School  would seem an excellent alternative. The students presently  attending the Alternate School  could be given a portable at  Elphinstone High School.  The students would be with  Couldn't one plant serve  Editor:  Egmont, as I know it, has  always been a close community  where neighbour looked out for  neighour. Egmont has, until  recently, been somewhat ignored by the rest of the world  because of its 'end of the road,  off the beaten track' location.  Now we see aquaculture interests seeking both close proximity to fish farms and road access to market, with Egmont as  a focal point.  Not adverse to careful  growth, or change, Egmont  welcomed a fish processing  plant into its midst, along with  the jobs and wages it had to offer. Unfortunately, this company has not lived up to its  word. Now there is a second  proposed fish processing plant  pressing for approval in Egmont. The community of Egmont has strongly objected to  this plant both in petition and  public hearing, but still the  owner and his agent insist that  this plant is necessary.  Necessary for whom?  With this issue being raised  again and again, after objections from the beginning, I see  the community of Egmont in  conflict where no conflict existed before. It is sad to think  that perhaps 'divide and conquer' tactics are being employed  in this situation and it would be  a shame to see one of the last  small communities on the Sunshine Coast fractured because  of the self-interests of a few  people.  However, perhaps there is a  solution being overlooked here  that would allay the various  concerns expressed by Egmont  residents.  There is an existing processing plant in Egmont with too  few fish to process to provide  steady, full time employment.  For the time being, this second  company could utilize the existing processing facility in Egmont and best serve that community's interests by doing so.  Perhaps a second processing  plant could be built, if it was  deemed necessary, at some  future time.  Tournament success  Editor:  Suncoast Cup a Success!  The fourth annual Suncoast  Cup has come and gone, and  while Oldtimers hockey is the  main purpose of the event, our  whole community benefits.  From the arena to the hotels  and motels, which were all filled, to the restaurants and the  stores in our community, this  truly has become a major event.  The Suncoast Breakers would  like to thank their community  for helping host this tournament: Ernie Fossett and the  Elphinstone Recreation Association for their generous donation, the Welcome signs at Gib  sons Building Supplies, Gulf  and the elementary school,  Ann-Lynn Flowers, Trail Bay  Sports, Fjord Design, Cactus  Flower, Golden City Restaurant  for a fabulous smorgasbord,  and all the others who welcomed the hockey oldtimers and  their families.  Also, special thanks to the  first stars of the tournament,  the Breaker Wives, who stole  the show with their food  upstairs, and also to the Scout  Council for their pancake feast.  Finally, the arena staff for  another outstanding job. Well  done.  Executive  Suncoast Breakers  Heritage Group  Editor:  Kathy Love and Rob Hagar  hosted a meeting of the fledgling Heritage Society last Sunday  in their home, the historic "Doc  Inglis House". The small but  keenly interested group discussed the direction their group  should take and centred on the  subject of buildings of heritage  vintage or of special significance  to the Sunshine Coast.  It was decided that no such  study should be undertaken  without the assistance of our  early settlers and of Gibsons  Town Planner, Rob Buchan,  and Building Inspector Ralph  Jones, as well as their counterparts in Sechelt.  It was also noted that the input of the staff at Elphinstone  Museum would be needed.  Therefore, they are contacting all of the early settlers from  the Gibsons list, the Elphinstone  Museum staff, and are extending an invitation via this  newspaper, to all those who are  interested in preserving the colour and history of the Sunshine  Coast.  The next meeting will take  place on March 8 at 1:30 pm, in  another Inglis building, The  Marina House, which is said to  be the pride of the Inglis family  who built it.  Please call 886-9213,  886-8354 or 886-3780 if you  wish to attend as the host  owners of The Marina House,  the Dalen family, will need to be  notified of the numbers.  If your house was built prior  to 1935, would you please call  and inform us of the address  and name of the present tenant.  Gwen Robertson  Pleased  Editor:  We have been pleased to read  your objective reporting in the  local paper the Coast News on  nuclear testing.  Thinking people, all over the  world are telling their leaders to  put a stop to this mad race  towards human extermination  by nuclear war.  We Canadians can not avoid  our duty to speak out in support  of a 'Test Ban Treaty'.  We expect our government to  firmly reject the testing of cruise  missiles, or the presence of US  nuclear armed warships in  Canadian waters.

Environmental concerns  would be doubled with a second  plant and there is not enough  fish at present to keep a small  crew at one processing plant  working full time. If the  aquaculture industry were to cooperate among themselves as  well as with local residents, all  would see their best interests  served.  P. Jackson  their peers and the present influence of smoking and poor  language would be removed  from the elementary school  playground.  The Resource Centre could,  and should, be housed at a  more central location for the  rest of the district schools and  staff.  The initial request for one  central location for the French  Immersion program is no longer  valid. The program is now successfully in progress at two locations. The considerable increase  in registration for September  1987 for both locations clearly  states the necessity and desire to  retain both programs.  I feel the decision to relocate  the French Immersion-program  at this stage of its development  has been made in haste, without  due consideration for the  children now attending the program, and for those parents  who wish to give their child an  exciting and challenging experience which will last a  lifetime.  The public meeting at Davis  Bay School on March 11 at 7  pm will give all concerned  parents an opportunity to meet  with school board members to  discuss this important issue.

The cauliflower is a  month earlier than expected. ���Fran Burnside photo  Gardening notes  greatest rewards of gardening is  that you're the boss and can express your own personality.  Proper planning makes a  tremendous difference for accomplishments.  Place your orders for  manure, order from a catalogue  or with nurserymen for seeds,  plants, etc., if not already done.  Meanwhile, prepare by clearing ground of unsightly, unwanted refuse. Burn or place in  compost heap to rot. Try to dig  a small patch each day, say one  half hour. Regularity is the  prime point in budgeting your  time to keep your lawn and  garden in beautiful, healthy  condition.  Remember the poem:  The kiss of the sun for pardon,  The song of the birds for mirth,  One is nearer God's heart in a  garden,  Than anywhere on earth.  Spring has sprung for us very  early this year, let's take advantage of it and get well ahead  with our individual garden  plans, and have time to enjoy it.  Several things have to be  done automatically each year  and basic planning of garden  area is a must.  Make a diagram on paper, no  you don't have to be an artist, it  helps us to see and review if our  plan is to work.  Before you plan or plant  anything, familiarize yourself  with the sun and shade conditions of your area. Some plants  thrive in shade, although most  plants require full or considerable sun to flourish.  Think small to begin with is a  good idea, we will achieve more  and be successful.

Edtor's note: the following was  received for publication.  Honourable Joe Clark, MP  Secretary of State for  External Affairs.  Dear Sir:  I read with dismay and  apprehension that the United  States has resumed the testing  of nuclear devices. Even more  disturbing is the fact that they  have decided to violate the Salt  II Treaty. These alaraiing facts  lead one to conclude that the US  is not interested in arms control.  As we have always been (or  until recently) considered to be  leaders in world peace, isn't it  time that we renewed that commitment? I believe, as many  others do, that it is this government's clear duty to refuse to  participate in the testing of these  infernal devices (i.e. cruise  missiles at Cold Lake, nuclear  torpedoes and depth charges at  Nanoose Bay, and low level  bombing flight patterns in  Labrador).  One of the great reasons that  your government is so low in the  polls is that your actions don't  match your words. Could you  please send me a clear statement  as to your policy on this? Hoping that you will steer a clear  course for world stability and  peace.

Come meet the new slate of officers and air your pet peeves!  Editor's Note: A copy of the  following letter was received for  publication.  H. Long, MLA  4749A Joyce Avenue  Powell River, B.C.  V8A 3B6  It was four weeks ago that I  sent a letter to Cliff Michael,  Minister   of  Transportation,  with a copy to you. So far I  have not had a reply!  A few days ago you were in  our area. According to a report  in the Coast News you said that  you would try to get the 10:30  am ferry reinstated for three  days a week, but that a late  night sailing is "impossible"!  Why??? Give us the reason!  In my letter I mentioned the  free ferries across the Arrow  and Kootenay lakes. Let's look  a little closer to home. Not  many years ago, with the help  of tax money from the people  of the Sunshine Coast, a new  big four lane bridge was built  across the Fraser River at Mission. Yet only a 15 minute drive  away is the Albion Ferry which  is not only free but runs from 6  am to 2 am every 15 minutes!  Even more objectionable is  the situation at Castlegar. In the  middle of town is a free ferry on  a similar schedule as the Albion,  but a bridge is only minutes  away! I ask you to justify this to  the people of the Sunshine  Coast!  Similar situations exist on the  Fraser River (three free ferries),  the North Thompson (two ferries), Arrow Lakes (three ferries), and at least one across the  Skeena River. The only common denominator, with the  possible exception of Boston  Bar - North Bend, is political!  Do you care to deny this?  Your idea of transferring certain assets from one department  to another is, as far as the taxpayers are concerned, a sleight  of hand. Why don't you face up  to the fact that transportation is  a necessity and not a luxury.  Why don't you accept your  responsibility to your constituents and their needs. Why  don't you see to it that the taxpayers of the riding you are supposed to represent get their fair  share!  Joe P. Kiene  three artists  oirttlBlfti  Gower Pt. Rd.

The Hall Committee is  celebrating the rites of spring on  March 21 with a Mardi Gras  theme, complete with costumes.  Music will be by Used Guys.  They've been practicing some  new songs and drew raves when  they played the high school  dance a few weeks ago. They'll  be featuring Ross Barrett, the  sax player from Waves, and  Joel Borenstein on slide trombone.  ; Costumes are easy, anything  goes at Mardi Gras, the wilder  the better.  Everybody is asked to bring a  plate of appetizers to add to the  party atmosphere. Tickets are  $5 and will be on sale soon at  Seaview Market. Come out for  a rocking good time and support the Hall Committee.  ELECTION SOON  ' The annual meeting with election of officers for the Roberts  Creek Community Association  is coming up on March 18. The  "old" executive is ready to  retire and somebody else will  have to come forward to keep  the association alive.  The Community Association  fills an important function. It is  die "town council" if you will.  It provides a forum for discussion of local issues, a collective  voice for expressing the wishes  of the community, and a means  of keeping the residents of  Roberts Creek informed about  what's happening.  I Ownership of the Community Hall and the post office  building   provide   valuable  assets.  So it's important that the  association remain a viable  organization. This requires people willing to put a little time  and energy into keeping Roberts  Creek a good place to live.  Please give it some serious  thought and come forward at  the meeting on March 18.  PATRICK'S DANCE  The Roberts Creek Legion is  celebrating St. Patrick's Day  this Saturday, March 14, with a  dance. The Emeralds will be  playing jigs and traditional  dances and anyone wearing  green is eligible for a prize.  Members and guests.  MOWER NEEDED  John Williams has very kindly donated his time and energy  to mow the lawn behind the  post office the last couple of  years but this year he is without  a lawnmower. This park area  does belong to the Community  Association so perhaps some  public-spirited member of the  community would donate or  lend John a mower over the  season.  John figures he would only  need the mower once a month  or so but starting soon. He'd  prefer  electric  as  Mary  and  Larry let him use the power  from Seaview Market. The use  of a weedeater would also be  most appreciated.  John lives close by and would  prefer to either keep a mower at  his house or not have to go too  far to pick it up. This is a nice  service he provides to the community, please phone him at  886-2689 after 3 pm if you can  help him out.  GARAGE DONATIONS  The ladies auxiliary to the  Roberts Creek Legion is trying  to round up items for their  garage sale in May. They would  appreciate donations of anything other than clothes and will  pick them up now to get them  out of your way. Phone  885-3522, 886-3084, 885-9258 or  885-3326.  LAND DEDICATED  The Community Association  would like to extend a big thank  you to Tom Lamb for the land  behind the Community Hall.  The land was dedicated for park  area when he subdivided the lot  and the regional board has turned it over to the Community  Association to use as desired. It  could provide a picnic area,  playground, parking, or any  number of things.

At no time during my affiliation with our building committee over the last five year period  has the building been known as  anything other than a new  seniors' hall.  In order that there be no  misunderstanding with regard  to the new building by the community at large, it is just that - a  seniors' hall owned by seniors  for the use of seniors.  Naturally it will be available  for concerts or plays if the performing artists are satisfied with  the acoustic properties of the  building and the dressing room  facilities etc. For the money that  is available for a structure such  as we have planned, we could  not even begin to construct a  theatre as such. It will, however  provide a substitute until, and  if, the other foundations and  councils are able to arrange and  provide for a real theatre for the  Sunshine Coast.  BUILDING COMMITTEE  Of necessity, with the sod turning ceremony sneaking up on  us, there are going to have to be  some changes made to our committee. To date the committee  has primarily been a fund raising arm of the overall project.  Whereas that function must  continue, at least for the present, the need for more construction knowledge and expertise is evident at this time when  plans must be examined and approved prior to being accepted.  This matter will be addressed at  a building committee meeting  The last rounds were ready to be hoisted into place for the completion of the shell frame, on one of the  Tetrahedron Ski Club's log cabins last Friday. McDermid Logging Limited has donated logs to make  shakes for the roof which will be the next stage in the construction of the cabin. ���Kent Sheridan photo  INTEREST  REIMBURSEMENT  PROGRAM  FARM OPERATORS:  You will receive your 1986 PARTIAL INTEREST REIMBURSEMENT under the Agricultural Credit Act if you are  eligible and apply not later than MAY 31,1987.

Highway 101? For tourists?  Not likely, not for a few years  ; at least. But it is an idea like this  that entertains the herds of  tourists in the 50th state of the  USA, Hawaii. The natural attractions bring the visitors in the  first place, but some further  unusual activity is always being  looked for.  '   An entrepreneur there came  up with a bizarre tour, cycling  down a 10,000 foot mountain  I for 38 miles, plus lunch, as a  \day's outing.  Probably more  iceful an outing than the  lever-ending flood of a guide's  Shatter on a bus tour of the  its.  i lilt seems that it is the entrepreneurs who build up the  tourist trade there and not tax-  fuhfled committees. But that is  , their way, isn't it. And probably  an j Entrepreneur initiated the  puri^ on "Lei" and "Lei'd"  now repeated tiresomely by tour  guides.  fudy's  Mobile  Mairdressing [  Professional Service  for Shut-Ins  1     Brought to your  residence  JUDY GILLIES     886-8290  Noted at the entrance to a  private liquor outlet was a  placard that listed the penalties  for impaired driving.  First offence penalties, providing that there have been no  convictions in the past five  years, are: 14 days of classes to  correct driving abuse, 30 days  suspension of licence, and after  that, 60 days restricted driving.  And, in addition, one of the  following: 72 hours of community work, 48 hours in jail,  or a fine of $150 to $1000. What  do we do here?  Tourist driving quirks were  commented on in a letter from a  resident to the editor of the  Maui News. In part it said,  "Tourists we love you, need  you. Enjoy these islands, but  remember you are on vacation,  we are not."  The complaints of this letter  writer who had been frequently  delayed going to work and  returning included dawdling by  tourist drivers on narrow  roads..."Pull right off the road  to read your map; take a tour  boat and not the roadside to  watch for whales. And please  signal turns." And "Why point  your finger at teenagers, or the  guy who's had three beers, and  not at the idiot over 65.who's  using his car as a cane."  Oh, yes, the letter writer  thought the penalties for driving  under the influence too harsh,  unconstitutional, and smacking  of dictatorship.  A rewarding activity it is, to  read the local papers while  visiting a holiday resort. Keeps  one off the road for a time, too.  And something about schools  would of course catch my eye.  From a James Yong-Sik Foon a  letter headed "Importance of  Principals."  One paragraph, a single  sentence, leaves the reader gasping. "When an administrator is  insincere, capricious, arbitrary,  vindictive, high-handed, interested basically in self-  advancement, and is shortsighted to the point of being unwilling or unable to utilize  parental help as aids in learning,  then the resultant apathy, alienation, negativism, and extreme  reluctance to assist in any way is  a natural aftermath." Whew!  Mr. Foon goes on to say that  parents have many skills they  can offer schools, and to use  them only in fund-raising is indeed short-sighted. Is Mr. Fcon  an exasperated superintendent,  a thwarted classroom teacher,  or a rejected parent?  His letter closes with the  statement that the principal can  be the most effective person in  the educational system. He can  inspire or create dissension. He  can acquire positive qualities if  he is willing to do so.  SOME GIBSONS ITEMS  "The break-ins at the  clubhouse," says a spokesman  for the Gibsons Wildlife Club,  "have netted the intruder  nothing each time.

Things have been happening, but your reporter was away  for the January and February  meetings.  Jean has been arranging some  very interesting bus trips - to the  Ice Capades, Chinese Gardens  and Temple, and now a visit to  Dairyland Foods. These trips  are greatly appreciated by people who are unable to go on  their own.  The Valentine's Dance was  another successful affair, and  the committee is to be commended for their efforts. Bill  Malyea provides the kind of  music that keeps people on their  toes.  The next dance is planned for  April 25, and the committee advises that you get your tickets  early. Tickets cannot be sold at  the door as this is a private party. The price is $5 per person,  which includes a delicious buffet lunch. The bar opens at 8  pm, and the price is reasonable.  Non-members are welcome,  and we hope you will consider  joining our branch.  The carpet bowling and a  dart tournament on  Wednesdays is a weekly feature  that we all look forward to. It is  noisy, but that kind of noise  spells 'fun'.  Other enthusiastic groups  meet on Tuesday afternoon for  Chinese exercise, Thursday  afternoon for ceramics, Thursday evening for bingo, Friday  morning for painting, and Friday evenings to play cards. We  need more whist players at 7:30  Fridays. It only costs a dollar  and coffee and tea are available  through out the evening followed by a light snack and a game  of darts.  Our president, Jim Munro,  has had to have eye surgery and  we all wish him a speedy  recovery. Kay Butler has had a  few spells in hospital and we  hope she will soon be back with  us.    It   was   good   to   see  ��� Marguerite Myers back in our  midst after her convalescence  with a broken hip.  We are all shocked to hear of  the death of Lois Anderson,  and condolences go to Ken, our  faithful bingo caller.  Some of our members are  basking in the sun in Hawaii,  while others are tripping to  Reno, and some even to the  Prairies.  Our own Harmony Hall  Choristers under the direction  of Ev Vernon entertained us  with their singing after the  meeting, and will be singing  again at Kiwanis Care Home  soon.

And that means LAMB! I know they look delightful jumping around  but they - or what remains of them - look just as delightful in the  supermarket! The flavour of lamb lends itself to many recipes that it's  difficult to choose specifics, but here goes!  ROAST LAMB  Take a leg of lamb. Cut six to eight incisions in the fattier side, spaced widely apart, into the incisions stick slivers of garlic cut from one or  two cloves. Place the meat on a rack in a roasting pan and place the  meat on, fat side up. Place in a 500��F oven for 20 minutes then brush  the leg with cooking oil. Reduce the heat to 350CF and cook for about  one hour, basting occasionally.  FF  ITYLAMB  Take one breast of lamb. Boil lor 20 minutes in salted water and  drain. Marinate for at least two hours in:  SPICED UP LAMB  Vh pounds lamb, cubed  2 tablespoons oil  V* teaspoon nutmeg  Vz teaspoon cumin  72 teaspoon ginger  V< teaspoon anise  1 teaspoon cinnamon  V* teaspoon dry mustard  1 cup sliced onions  1 tablespoon chopped garlic  1 tomato, chopped  1 apple, peeled, cored and chopped  V< cup raisins  2 cups chicken stock  salt to taste  2 tablespoons fresh parsley,  chopped  1 cup orange juice  1A cup lemon juice  2 tablespoons soy sauce  1 teaspoon mint sauce  Vi teaspoon cumin  Then bake in the oven for 45 minutes at 350��F or until well-browned.  FRUIT STUFFED SHOULDER OF LAMB  Remove the bone from the meat - go on - you can do it if your butcher  can't. Just pretend you're a surgeon. Into the "pocket" that's in the  meat place the following stuffing:  Stuffing:  1 tablespoon finely chopped onion 1 cup dried apru 'is, chopped  Va cup chopped green pepper 1 cup day old breadcrumbs  1 clove garlic, chopped % teaspoon salt  2 tablespoons butter Va teaspoon thyme  Squish all this in, roast the meat in the usual manner. Brush it first  with some oil and for the remainder of the cooking period baste it with  orange juice or red wine.  1. Saute the meat in hot oil until well browned.  2. Add all the spices and saute for a few more minutes.  3. Add all other ingredients except parsley. Bring to the boil and give a  good stir. Turn heat down to low, cover and cook for two hours.  4. Just before serving sprinkle on parsley and serve with rice.  And just to coin a phrase - "If Spring is almost here, can Summer  be far behind?"

Coast News, March 9,1987  by Peter Trower  Works in watercolour, acrylic, pen and ink and coloured pencil  span the range from abstraction to high realism in an intriguing exhibition of the latest artworks of Linda Dixon, on display at the  Hunter Gallery until March 15. ���Fran Burnside photo  Booking In  In 1865, Captain Stamp  decided to move the operation  to Burrard Inlet. He purchased  for $1 an acre, 243 acres of  gently sloping land, extending  from the foreshore to Little  Mountain. Rogers and his crews  moved in to clear a saw mill site  at the foot of what is now  Dunlevy Avenue.  When this job was completed'  and a supply of logs had been  laid in, Rogers and his men  moved to Jericho Beach on  English Bay, to recommence  cutting spars. (The name  Jericho does not refer to the  biblical city of tumbling walls  but is a contraction of Jerry's  Cove, the designation given it  on old maps.) Here they established the first true logging  camp in the area. (Although  they had been logging across the  Inlet at Moodyville for almost  two years prior to this, the men  lived at the millsite and ate at  the mill cookhouse.) Rogers'  camp was a self-sufficient  operation, typical of the period.  It consisted of several rough  split cedar shacks, comprising a  bunkhouse, a cookhouse, a  shack for the bullwacker, a  shack for the cook and, some  distance from the others, a  hovel for the skid-greaser,  around whom the stench of dog  fish oil hung always like a rank  effluvia. The oxen were quartered in a shake-roofed barn and  fed  crushed  barley imported  from San Francisco. There was  also a strongly built pig pen,  well roofed and fenced, not so  much to keep the pigs in as to  keep out the cougars and bears,  whose fondness for fresh pork  was well known. The pigs were  fed slops from the cookhouse.  As might be expected, the  food in Rogers' camp was not  exactly a gourmet's delight but  there was plenty of it. The menu  consisted of salt beef, salt pork,  green bacon, beans, potatoes  and occasionally, fresh venison  or pork whenever a deer was  shot or a hog butchered. Dessert  consisted of dried  apples  or  prunes and bread was baked by  the  cook,   unquestioned  lord  and master of his fragrant domain. He brooked no slurs on  his   culinary   abilities   and  derogatory remarks about the  food were apt to be met with a  brandished cleaver.  The men in Rogers* employ  were a motley bunch. They included many ex-seamen, a  number of disgruntled miners  from the Caribou gold fields  and even the odd Civil War  veteran who had drifted north.  The work was hard, the hours  long and the wages minimal.  The loggers toiled 12 hours a  day from dawn till dusk, six  days a week and ate all meals in  camp, including lunch. Sunday  was devoted to washing clothes,  playing cards, shooting the  breeze or dunging out the  bunkhouse - for there was no  such creatures as a bullcook in  those days. The men slept on  mattresses made of dried hemlock boughs on double-decker  bunks and provided their own  blankets. There was no liquor  allowed in camp but twice a  year at Christmas and July 1st,  the crew would don their best  duds and descend, caulkbooted  on the bars and brothels of New  Westminster for a roaring 10  day spree in the immemorial  manner of loggers both before  an since. It was not an easy life  by any stretch of the imagination but as the saying went,  they'd hired out to be tough.  Unlike some of the tyranical  men who were to follow him,  Jerry Rogers was considered a  rather benevolant boss. It was  said of him that he would  always feed a good logger who  was   down   on   his   luck.   A  seasoned axeman \or bullpun-  cher was always Welcome in;  Rogers' camp even if there was'  no work for him at the moment. <  Stern with slackersvbut dead;  fair, Jerry Rogers reputedly:  knew every logger on the Coast, !  not too difficult a feat at the;  time as there weren't too many;  around. But the breed would;  proliferate impressively before;  the century was ott.

He was fond of hooch and  high times and made no secret  of the fact. Bogart liked nothing  better than a good party and  hung   out   with   some   of  Hollywood's   most   notorious  high rollers.  Unlike some of his friends  ,  such as Errol Flynn and Frank  ? Sinatra, however, Bogie was not  ; known as a great womanizer.  \- He was married four times but  I appeared to be a one-woman  ] man during each of these rela-  1 tionships. This illusion of fideli-  ; ty was misleading though, for  ; Bogart had a secret life - a  clandestine   relationship   with  another woman that lasted for  over 20 years.  In her book Bogie and Me  (St. Martin's Press), his hair-  ��������� dresser, secretary and long time  mistress, Verita Thompson,  reveals the whole bittersweet  story. It was a frank and  riveting look at Hollywood  behind the scenes.  Bogart and Ms Thompson  became acquainted in a rather  odd way. In the early 40's, the  laconic actor began to lose his  hair with increasing rapidity.  J There was no such thing as a  bald leading man in those pre-  Kojak days.  Bogart was ordered to wear a  toupee at all times. The full time  use of a hairpiece literally requires the services of a confederate to apply the wigs and  keep them conditioned, realistic-looking and as undetectable  as possible. Verita Thompson, a  failed actress, became Bogart's  rug co-ordinator.  Bogart treated the whole  business (a term of his contract)  with resigned, cynical good  humour. There was a mutual attraction between Thompson  and himself. They were required  to spend a lot of time together  and inevitably, became lovers.  Bogart, at the time, was  stumbling through the final  stages of his third (and most  chaotic) marriage to a former  Broadway actress called Mayo  Methot, a hard drinking woman  with a violent temper. Their  relationship had degenerated into a series of fights and  arguments, frequently conducted in public.  Ms Thompson's marriage  was also foundering. She and  Bogart became inseparable  although (again in accordance  with studio edits), they were  obliged to conduct their affair  discreetly. Thompson fully expected to become Bogie's fourth  wife when both of them were  free.  But a legal liason between  Bogart and Verita Thompson  was never to materialize. Fate  intervened in the willowy personage of actress Lauren Becall.  In 1944, Bogie was cast opposite  Becall in To Have or Have Not  and the result was instant  chemistry. Becall set her sights  for the much older actor and the  two were married after a whirlwind and highly publicized  courtship. Verita Thompson  was devastated.  It was not the end of the story  however. Thompson; heard  nothing from Bogart for about  a year. Then one night he phoned. His new marriage was riot  going well and he wanted someone to talk to. Thompson's  first inclination was to flatly  refuse but, despite herself, she  still loved Bogart. He took to  dropping by and, before long,  they had resumed their  clandestine relationship.  Bogart and Thompson continued to see each other surrep-  At the Arts Centre  Children's Art  Just about everyone loves  children's art. We, at least, can  imagine that we see through  their eyes for a little while. And  the works themselves have a  freshness, honesty, and beauty  that can't be imitated.  The walls of the Arts Centre  in Sechelt will be covered with  these treasures in this year's  Eighth Annual Young People's  Art Exhibition running from  March 11 to 29.  The Arts Centre is open from  Wednesday to Saturday from  11 am to 4 pm and Sunday from  1 to 4 pm. An ideal time to see  the show is during March break.  Come with your kids.

Eventually, she met, fell in love with  and married a film director and  her relationship with Bogart  became platonic. But their  friendship continued until the  actor's death from lung cancer  in 1957.  Verita Thompson tells her  strange and moving story,  straight forwardly and well. It is  studded with colourful anecdotes about various Hollywood  luminaries at work and play, a  stimulating little book that  shows Bogart and his pals as  they really were behind the hype  and the glitter.

Garden  by Penny Fuller  The overwhelming urge to  grub about in the dirt is starting  to hit many residents of the  Sunshine Coast. I have no intention of entering into the great  debate of when it's too early or  late to plant your garden.  The fact is, though, that the  earliest astrology of pre-history  was based on observing the  heavens in order to plan the  cultivation or gathering of food.  The information gathered over  the centuries for that purpose  has filled many books. For our  purposes, it is sufficient to look  at the signs that the moon is  passing through and its phases  in order to decide what to plant  when.  Certain plants seem to grow  better when planted at the  time that the moon is in a certain sign and in a certain phase.  Just for a quick review: the  moon is waxing as it changes  from being a new moon  through the first quarter and into the full moon stage; it then  wanes passing to third quarter  until we hit the dark of the  moon and then the new moon  again.  As a general rule of thumb,  plants that grow up like beans,  peas, corn, etc., should be  planted between the new moon  and the full moon. Plants that  grow down like beets, potatoes,  etc., should be planted between  the full moon and the third  quarter. Nothing should be  planted during the fourth--  quarter or dark of the moon.  This is a specific list of planting dates for this year when the  sign and phase of the moon will  be most favourable to the plants  listed:  Flowers: (seeded) April 10,  11, May 7, 8, and best of all  June 3,4; (bulbs) April 12, May  9, 10, and best is June 5.  Beans, cabbage, cauliflower,  swiss chard, gourds, kohlrabi,  and herbs; May 9, 10, June 6  and 7.  Lettuce: April 5, May 2, and  May 29.  Cantelope watermelon, roses,  sweetpeas, asparagus, berries,  broccoli, brussels sprouts,  tomatoes: May 2, 29, June 25,  26 and 27.  Garlic, pole beans, cucumber, squash, onions, peppers,  leeks, corn: May 11, 12, June 8,  9, 10 and 11.  Peas, pumpkin, squash: May  9 through 13.  Beets, bulbs, carrots, chicory,  potatoes, turnips: March 18,19,  April 14, 15, 18, 19, June 12  and 13.  Radishes,   onions,   horse-  e stars  radish: April 16, 17, May 13  and 14.  From March 23 through  March 29, April 20 through 26,  and May 20 through 26, pull  weeds or get an early start on  your tan, but give the seeds a  break and don't bother planting.

THIS WEEKEND'S  Dinner Special pa* ***��*&  PORK TENDERLOIN  $Q95  with all the trimmings  Also Try our Daily Lunch Specials  Cedar Plaza, Hwy 101, Gibsons     ^fZ'Hr1  Your guide to  the finest in  area dming  DINING GUIDE  A listing of  restaurants  and pubs  About five minutes away from the Sunnycrest Mall in  Gibsons is the best breakfast deal on the entire Sunshine  Coast. I'd heard that the Peninsula Motor Inn had a 99  cent breakfast special, but I figured that there must" be  some kind of gimmick, like you had to have receipts for  $50 worth of previous meals or something. Last Saturday I  found out that I was overly skeptical.  While rushing in to work, I decided that I had to have  breakfast and turned into the Peninsula Motor Inn to  catch a quick bite. When I ordered my ham and eggs with  hash browns (I was hungry), owner Erv Penner rang up 99  cents. My companion had already eaten breakfast and  ordered a bacon burger with fries. Total bill - $5.49, and  that included coffees.  While we waited for our orders we debated whether to  play a video game or shoot a round of pool, something I  haven't done for years. The food, however, arrived so  quickly that we didn't have a chance to do either.  This was the real test. What kind of food can you get  these days for those prices? The answer - delicious food.  The ham and eggs were accompanied by REAL hash  browns, two slices of toast and an orange slice garnish.  The hamburger was also "made from scratch" and accompanied by a huge pile of golden French fries.  The breakfast special is featured daily, seven days a  week, from 11 am to 12 noon. Even after that you can still  get a good breakfast for only $2 or $3, still an excellent  bargain.  Included on the menu are sandwiches and burgers at  equally low prices, the most expensive 'special' burger is  only $4.25. Right now the kitchen closes around 5 pm or 6  pm but Erv Penner tells me that starting in April it will be  open later.

Alec was possessed of gifts, abilities and great energy which  he unsparingly contributed to the betterment and progress of  the communities in which he lived and worked.  The Golf Club was the fortunate beneficiary when he and  Gladys moved to the Sunshine Coast. He worked on the official board, committees and work parties for over 11 years.  His contribution to the improvement of our club over those  years was immense.  Alec was a pleasure to know and to be with. He will be sadly missed.

Possibly the best part of the  weekend was that all 12 teams  played four different teams,  and the Sunday finals proved  the new format was a bonus.  The "toilet bowl" games  were competitive with the  Powell River Gentlemen  defeating the Maple Ridge  Mountain Boys 5-3. The other  contest saw the Shaky Blades  shade the Elphi Wrecks 4-1.  The two host teams were on  opposite sides for the Bronze  medal games, with the Breaker  Dream Team defeating the  Squamish Tuggers 5-2 for a  third place finish, while the  Ghost Breakers lost 4-1 to their  arch-rivals, the NSWC Spring  Chickens.  The Ghost  awarded the  Play"   trophy  Breakers were  COHA "Fair  for   the   least  penalized team in the tournament.  Both division finals were two  of the best games of the tournament. The Canfor Cup Final  between the Powell River  Regals and first time Ancient  Mariners was a splendid game.  The Mariners opened with two  goals in the first half, and  literally hung on in the second  period to squeak out a 2-0 win,  and take home the beautiful  totem carved trophies of local  carver Jim Yelton.  The Suncoast Cup final was  between first year team North  Shore Warriors and the  Whistler White Tops. In one of  the most exciting and tense  games you could watch, the  White Tops scored the go ahead  2-1 goal with but one second left  in the five minute sudden death  overtime period. Truly a heart  breaking loss for the Warriors  but a sensational win for the  Whistler Boys who were tournament runners-up two years ago.

Efforts to rebuild the  Wrecks, formerly the Wa-  mianas Hockey Club, are paying off as the team has become  much more competitive in  COHA tournament play.  In games played in the Suncoast Breakers tournament last  weekend, the Wrecks played  some exciting, fast paced,  disciplined hockey.  The first game against the  Maple Ridge Mountain Boys,  with goals scored by Kohuch  and Giroux, was lost 3-2.  The second game against the  Ancient Mariners, who recently  returned from a tournament in  Mexico, was equally exciting  and ended in a 2-1 loss, the lone  goal scored by Gauthier.  The Wrecks outshot the opposition in both games and enjoyed excellent goaltending  from Gary Klassen, who was  pulled in the final moments for  extra forwards.  Despite hard work and three  goals scored by Pederson,  Diplock and Van Brabant, the  third penalty riddled games  against the Squamish Tuggers  was lost 6-3.  The final game in the consolation event was played  against the skilled North Delta  Shakey Blades, who had won  two of their previous games in  the tournament. Van Brabant's  goal early in the first period of  the fast moving game was not  enough and the Wrecks recorded a 4-1 loss.  The Wrecks are grateful to  the   Elphinstone   Recreation  Club for their generous sponsorship and Sechelt Insurance  Agencies for a donation of  goaltender equipment.

April 5 will see the running of  the tenth annual April Fools'  Run from Gibsons to Sechelt.  If you were on the Coast nine  years ago, you might remember  several columns in the Coast  News which instigated the  whole affair. Columnist, teacher and rugby player George  Matthews (Where is George?)  was taken to task by then fitness  instructor Fran Burnside for  alternately extolling the virtues  of both debauchery and physical activity, and was challenged  to admit that it really did feel  good to be in shape.  The two had never met, and  in response Matthews judged  Burnside to be a blue-haired,  besneakered fitness freak who  survived on wheat germ and  alfalfa sprouts, and challeneged  her to compare mettles in a race  from Gibsons to Sechelt on  April 1!  Burnside refused to accept  the challenge to race, saying  fitness should not be a competition but a striving toward per  sonal goals, and agreed to a  friendly run to Sechelt with  Matthews. She invited all other  runners interested in seeing how  far they could make it to join  them on the big day, and when  35 people turned out to run the  half marathon the April Fools'  Run was born.  This year's run should be better than ever, with T-shirts, certificates and refreshments being  made available to participants.  The big excitement this year will  be seeing whether two-time winner Greg Chilton of Winnipeg  will cross the finish line first for  the third consecutive year and  take home the coveted Coast  News Challenge Cup for good.  In order to facilitate ordering  T-shirts, pre-registration is requested by March 25. The entry  form will be found in the April  Fools' Run announcement in  this paper.  Late registrations will be accepted the morning of the race,  but T-shirts will not be available  for those participants.  If you have questions or  would like to help with the run  at aid stations along the way or  at the finish line, please call  Fran   at   the   Coast   News,  I   i  >  s  Commercial Men's Hockey  League play-offs start Thursday, March 12 through April 4.  There will be a %\ entrance  charge and all monies collected  go toward ice and referee costs.  Final two games of the season  are Tuesday, March 10; Hawks  vs Roberts Creek for second  place and only one point  separates the two teams.  On Wednesday, March 11 the  battle is between the Buccaneers  and Gilligans. The question is  here, will Gilligans win their  first game of the season?  The Wakefield has first.place  locked up and receives a bye in  the first round.  Wanted: Referees for playoffs. Two-man system, $15 per  game. Phone Bob Young  885-5096.

Olfert  885-4568  will be made here because of his  duties concerning the mill's  water supply system. The yard  shift workers will be featured in  another article, Chip Handling  Group.  The number one priority in  determining the location, and  subsequent construction and  operation of a pulpmill is the  availabiLity and access to an  adequate, year-round supply of  water. Rainy River meets this  demand.  As a part of their responsibilities, yard day workers,  steam and recovery personnel,  and the shift water utility men,  maintain a constant inspection  of the piping, pumps, filters, intake screens and reservoirs that  are needed to provide an  uninterrupted flow of water to  the mill.  Mill water consumption has  recently dropped from 24-26  millon gallons (US) per day to  16-17 million gallons (US) per  day; a result of innovations for  water recycling in the bleach  plant.  Any major malfunction of  equipment that stops water flow  can put the mill down. Without  water, the steam and recovery  plant must shut down, and all  pulping processes requiring  water would come to a grinding  halt.  The mill has approximately  six hours of emergency running  time from water in the treatment reservoir.  In the fall, the yard day crew  and labourers, and the shift  water utility men can spend long  cold hours at the 42 inch  diameter intake pipe (penstock)  clearing debris away from the  screens. If the screens were to  become plugged, water flow to  the mill would be drastically  reduced.  The duties of the yard day  crew are multi-faceted. They are  men who run the forklifts, front  end loaders, dump trucks, D7  Cat, a crane and a road-runner.  When materials, equipment  and tools need to arrive at a  worksite with tradesmen, at the  right time and place, it's the  yard crew's job to do the  transporting.  General mill site cleanup, including the hauling of heavy  waste materials to the dump,  along with overall responsibility  for the dump site rests with the  yard crew.  The moving of the chemical  tank rail cars by the mill's  locomotive, is another example  of the essential work that the  yard day workers regularly do  to keep the mill running  smoothly.  Alderman Len Herder came  under fire at last week's meeting  of the Sechelt Council when he  gave his report at chairman of  the Public Works Committee.  Herder stated that he was well  pleased with the work that was  being done and cited an example of saving the municipal  district money by combining  two projects, taking earth  removed in one place and depositing it in another that required fill.  However, Alderman Anne.  Langdon questioned Herder  repeatedly about a public works  priority list that council had  been promised shortly after the  new district was incorporated.  Alderman Herder assured  council that the list was being  compiled, but said that the projects being listed were capital  works projects, such as paving  certain streets, which need a lot  Junior  basketball  The 1986-87 Junior Boys  Basketball season was  highlighted with an exciting one  point victory over Pemberton  during the Junior Cougar Invitational Tournament in which  Elphi won, 39-38.  The team opened the season  with a 69-52 win over Pender  Harbour and went on a seven  game undefeated streak, including a 45-42 win over double  AA school David Thompson in  Vancouver.  The team played many exciting games and improved  greatly over the season, with  their best performance of the  year against Pemberton, losing  by one point in overtime at the  Pemberton Invitational Finals.  A special thanks to our  managers Janine and Pam who  did an excellent job.  Overall record for the  Cougars: 12 wins, 6 losses.

"The work  crews," he said, "have been doing maintenance work. That has  to be kept up."  The issue was finally put off  until the next council meeting,  when public works foreman,  Doug Fraser, will attend in  order to answer questions from  council members.

FOR INFORMATION & SERVICE CALL  886-7598  The results of a recent questionnaire sent out by the Sechelt  Municipal Council regarding  the construction of a leisure  centre were released last week.  Out of 3000 questionnaires sent  out, the municipal district  received 535 back. 413 of them  were positive responses, while  122 where less than enthusiastic.  The idea of locating government offices in the complex in  order to subsidize the operational costs with rent received  strong support. However, the  real indication of enthusiasm  was indicated by over 400  positive responses to the question of increasing taxes to pay  for the project.  While only 75 respondents  said that they, or their family,  would use the centre once a day,  a further 225 claimed that they  would probably be there at least  three times a week, mostly using  either the swimming pool and  whirlpool, or the exercise fitness  facilities.  The restaurant and lounge  rated high on the user priority  list, and about 300 people said  they felt that ice facilities should  be located in the same complex.  Council has put a $5000  deposit on land adjacent to the  Trail Bay Mall where they hope  to build the leisure centre.  Diesel Engine Rebuilding  Industrial Parts  Hwy 101,  Madeira Park  883-2616  Lifeboat support sought  The Gibsons station of the  B.C. Lifeboat Society (BCLS)  met last week with MLA  Harold Long to seek his support  for their newly formed group.  Specifically, they asked for his  endorsement of their application for assistance in purchasing  their own vessel which is being  sent to B.C. Lotteries.  Long, who flies his float  plane in search and rescue  operations as a part of the  Powell River PEP program,  gave his commitment to help.  Until their own vessel is purchased, Cockswain Roy  Boutilier reported that their station would lease a Boston  Whaler this summer so that they  could get into operation and get  some practice.  Boutilier also reported that  their group is discussing the  possibility of becoming  associated with the Canadian  Maritime Rescue Association  (CMRA), a provincially funded  rescue operation that uses its  members' privately owned  vessels. CMRA is in operation  maam*mwmm9mwmmm  on the Sunshine Coast and has  four of its members' boats in  Gibsons harbour.

Coast News, March 9,1987  uess Where  The usual prize of $5 will be awarded the first entry drawn which  correctly locates the above. Send your entries to reach the Coast  News, Box 460, Gibsons, by Saturday of this week. Last week's  winner was Chris Fawkes of Box 674, Sechelt, who correctly  located the municipal yard in Sechelt across from the Esso Station.  Continued from page 1  The cost benefit analysis of  the aquaculture industry was  referred to the EDC from the  SCRD at the suggestion of  Director Gordon Wilson and is  in keeping with one of the  recommendations of the  Gillespie Report on fish farming.  Commissioners received their  copies of the EDC budget for  1987 and Finance Committee  Chairman Bruce Moseley  undertook to have an analysis  ready by the time of the next  meeting.  On the role of the arts in the  economic sector, the commission heard from the representative of the Sunshine Coast  Arts Council Janet Dohlman  who was urging the appointment of a paid position of Arts  Co-ordinator. Dohlman also  raised several questions about  capital costs, location and possible operating deficits of the proposed theatre in lower Gibsons.  President Rai Purdy of the  Eileen Glassford Arts Foundation responded to Dohlman's  questions and delivered to the  EDC copies of the latest proposal booklet prepared by the  foundation.  "We have been working very  hard," Purdy told the commission "with virtually weekly  meetings. It all hinges on the  availability of funds and we  must show local support in this  regard to open senior government doors."  Both EDC Chairman Maurice Egan and SCRD Chairman  Jim Gurney supported the project enthusiastically and in  response to one of Ms  Dohlman's stated concerns  about the location of the  theatre, which echoed a letter  received from Allan Crane,  Egan stated emphatically that  the proposed location was 'the  best possible location' on the  Sunshine Coast in his view.  It was suggested that finan  cial assistance may be available  for the hiring of a professional  fund raiser for the project.  The EDC was told that a  membership drive for the Arts  Foundation was now underway  headed by Eve Smart and Cindy  Buis.  A proposal that the title of  Community Development Officer Irene Lugsdin be changed  was opposed on the grounds  that the possible controversy  would be more of a hindrance  to the commission's work than  the benefits to be gained.  Schools to vote  on policy changes  Found half-dead on the beach at Bonniebrook last September,  'Bonnie' just won the Morris Award for best household pet at the  Vancovuer Rain Festival Cat Show. If Bonnie wins again in the  Seattle semi-finals, her 11 year old rescuer Tim Marsh and his  mother will escort her to New York for a chance at stardom in national TV commercials for 9-Lives cat food. ��� Manley photo  At the February 26 meeting  of the school board, Trustee  Eton Douglas served notice that  on March 10 he will be calling  for a vote on various policy  amendments. These will cover  diverse issues including:  transportation arrangements for  students to extra-curricular activities, special recognition of  teachers, designating a spokesman for the board, and the use  of volunteers in schools.  He will also be asking for first  reading to be given to an  amendment which will add to  the list of board committees.  After months of intensive  study of a variety of recommendations regarding child abuse,  School District No. 46 will be  voting on their own action plan  at the March 10 meeting.  Trustee Dave Mewhort served  notice of motion at last week's  meeting of the School Board,  that he will be asking the board  to adopt a new policy outlining  the reporting process for child  abuse suspicions as well as 28  specific recommendations compiled by the ad hoc committee  which reviewed the B.C. School  Trustees Association (BCSTA)  Task Force report and the  Sullivan Report.  Trustee Judy Wilson asked  Mewhort if the committee had  consulted with a lawyer to ensure that none of the recommendations contravene the  Human Rights Code. Although  this had not been done,  Mewhort pointed out that  Sullivan is a Crown Counsel  and the BCSTA has considerable legal advice available  to them and since the recommendations had been pulled  from those two reports, he felt  that there was no problem.  It was agreed to wait until the  next meeting to vote on adoption of the recommendations in  order to allow trustees to study  them.
