 �����'     _      >m  Legislative Library  Parliament Buildings  Victoria, BC V8V 1X4  87.6  i  ���  Tranquility ��� Sechelt Marsh.  ���Kent Sheridan pboto  Aqua West situation  Skelly calls for audit  by Penny Fuller  North Island-Powell River  MP Ray Skelly has'called for an  investigation into the expenditures of federal grants made  to the Sunshine Coast Tourism  Association (SCTA) and Aqua  West. In an interview with the  Coast News last Thursday,  Skelly said he had approached  Minister of Fisheries, Tom Sid-  don with a formal request that  the ministry investigate the  dispersments made from a  $60,000 grant to Aqua West last  spring.  A similar letter was delivered  to the office of Andre  Bouchard, Canada Employment and Immigration Minister, regarding two grants made  from his ministry to the SCTA  around the same time.  This is the second time that  an audit has been done on Aqua  Wests books. The first was done  by the provincial government  last summer after Area A Director Gordon Wilson asked for an  accounting of the $150,000 that  the Ministry of Agriculture had  contributed to that project.  The request came at the  beginning of June, 1986, three  weeks before Aqua West actually opened. According to an interim report issued by Aqua  West on May 15, 1986, the project had already run through  $261,559.84 in grant monies  and participation fees and was  $44,198.55 in debt.  Major expenditures listed in  the May 15 document indicate  that much of the money was  spent on salaries and travel. The  Aqua West Interim Report  issued on April 1, 1986 by Executive Director Oddvin Vedo  and Project Co-ordinator Anne  Langdon explains where the  travel and promotion money  ^went.  Between January 1, 1986 and  April 1, 1986, Oddvin Vedo attended conferences in Prince  Rupert, Port Hardy and Reno.  He also travelled to Norway,  Great Britain, the United States  and parts of Canada accompanied on some of these excursions by Jim Fralick from the  Ministry of Agriculture.  Jim Anderson, Ministry of  Agriculture representative, told  the Coast News last week that  the audit "indicated all funds  were accounted for."  When questioned about the  travel, Anderson admitted that  the verfication covered in the  audit was only that the trips  took place, not necessarily  whether or not they benefited  Aqua West and he was unable  to say whether the Ministry or  Aqua West had paid for Jim  Fralick's expenses.  Around the same time that  Wilson asked for an inquiry, the  -Vancouver Sun published an article in which Vedo acknowledged that he had used the Aqua  West brochure to advertise two  of his own companies, Oscar  Larsen Supply and the Sunshine  Coast Economic Development  Corporation, without paying  the fee charged to other companies.  However, he pointed out in  the same article that Aqua West  had brought in $200,000 from  the private sector, which, if accurate, would have brought the  total income of the project by  June 9 to $401,359.86.  In spite of the money poured  into Aqua West and Vedo's optimism about attracting a total  of 30 corporate sponsors by  mid-July, the project closed in  October, 1986, leaving the  SCTA an estimated $100,000 in  debt.  The current status of the  SCTA is uncertain. The association's constitution required that  an annual general meeting���be  held byMarcnl9, l'98t*t>ut'thisr  has not taken place. When  questioned about the situation,  past-president Richard Tomkies  stated that he was no longer  associated with the SCTA and  referred the reporter to Vice-  President Ed Traffe.  Mr. Traffe stated that he  wasn't sure what was happening  and suggested that the Coast  News contact Richard Tomkies  or Anne Langdon.  When contacted, Anne  Langdon said she had not been  connected with the association  for some time and had no idea  what the financial status was or  what plans there were for handling the debts.  Consumer and Corporate Affairs confirmed that the directors of the SCTA could not be  held liable for debts incurred by  the association. The same situation exists in regards to debts in-  ^urred-liy Aqua West, although  it was, in fact, registered as a  private company last spring.  The shareholders of Aqua West  Exhibitions Ltd. cannot be held  responsible for debts accrued by  the company.  The only chance that local  businesses may have to collect  the money owed to them by  either the SCTA or Aqua West,  will be if the directors can be  proven to have been negligent.  If that were to be decided by a  court of law, the directors then  become responsible for outstanding debts.  Commissioner assigned  to study B.C. schools  "I don't want to rain on the  parade but what happened to  Let's Talk About Schools?"  asked School Trustee Judy  Wilson at Tuesday's board  meeting. This exclamation was  provoked by news that the  Ministry of Education was going to launch a Royal Commission on Education headed by  Vancouver lawyer Barry  Sullivan.  Sullivan is well acquainted  with B.C. schools. He was  Crown prosecutor in the Robert  Noyes case and prepared a  report last year for the  Ministries of Attorney-General,  Health and Education on sexual  abuse.  In announcing the appointment Education Minister Tony  Brummet stated Sullivan "has a  detailed but unbiased  knowledge of B.C.'s education  system, has met previously with  many of the major participants  in the system, including  teachers, organizations, trustees  and parents."  The Commission will examine education from Kindergarten to Grade 12, has virtually  no constraints and will have approximately a year to complete  its job.  The general objectives are to  develop a population well  prepared to meet rapidly changing challenges of everyday life,  one highly motivated to learn  and develop personal skills and  creative potential, and one well  prepared to rationally and  maturely evaluate options at  both the personal and community levels.  Public hearings will be held  around the province. The Commission will accept formal briefs  and will also provide a  mechanism for individuals to  address it without preparing a  formal written brief.  Sea Cavalcade  Anyone interested in participating in the organizing of the  1987 Sea Cavalcade is invited to attend a meeting on Monday, March 30, 7 pm, at the office of D'arcy Burk, 250  Gower Point Road (above Show Piece Gallery, opposite the  Omega Restaurant).  D'arcy is willing to co-ordinate this year's events. He needs  input from those interested in helping, it should be fun!  886-7995 is his phone number.  Boxing show  Bruno Gerussi will be Master of Ceremonies at the  Cavalcade of Champions International Boxing Show at Gibsons Winter Club this Saturday. Program details on Page 15.  Art film  Ballad of a Soldier is the classic Soviet film directed by  Grigori Chukhrai in 1960. It's a hauntingly beautiful and  tender story of a young Russian soldier's attempt to get home  to see his mother during a leave from the army during Worjd  War II.  The film will be showing at the Arts Centre on Wednesday,  April 1 at 8 pm.  Marsh Society meets  The last meeting of the winter season for the Sechelt Marsh  Society will be held at the Arts Centre at 7:30 pm," Friday,  April 3.  Guest speaker will be Dr. Andrew Howard.  His presentation will be the History of Logging in B.C.  Elphinstone Plan  Fourth reading rush  inflames SCRD  Third reading was given to  the Elphinstone Settlement Plan  at the Sunshine Coast Regional  Board meeting last Thursday,  but Area A Director Gordon  Wilson says the board wasn't in  a legal position to do that.  Referring to the way the issue  was handled, Wilson said it was  "government at its worst".  Chairman Jim Gurney asked  that the board give third reading  to the by-law implementing the  Settlement Plan and then call an  emergency meeting for Monday  morning to give fourth and final  reading. He explained that the  law requires 24 hours to elapse  between third and fourth read-  ding.  When asked why the by-law  was being rushed -through,  Gurney took the meeting in  camera and asked the press to  leave.  Gordon Wilson told the  Coast News in an interview  later, "I was not happy with the  procedure and my objections  are on record.  "A subsequent conversation  with the secretary-treasurer confirmed my suspicions that the  board was not able to give third  reading anyway. Therefore, in  fact, the board has only given  first and second reading and  due process will be followed."  Farrington Cove  Pender hears  development plans  Developers of the Farrington  Cove housing project in Pender  Harbour are facing opposition  on only one aspect of their  rezoning applications, directors  learned at a public hearing held  last week in Madeira Park.  Owner Thomas Howatt described the "California-type"  development he had in mind for  his Pender Harbour property  which included 7.67 hectares of  land on the waterfront. The  project, when completed will include a total of 50 duplexes, two  swimming pools, two tennis  courts, Jacuzzis, a yacht club  and a restaurant and lounge.  Those who turned out to  voice their concerns at the hearing were mainly concerned with  the sewage disposal system  which would service the  development. The current  design calls for sewage to be  pumped uphill, put through a  "state-of-the-art" treatment  system, which uses no chemicals, and piped into a septic  field at the top of the property.  Neighbouring property  owners are worried about the  volume of liquid, 25,000 gallons  per day, that will be pumped into an already swampy area.  Jerry Krantz of Sinclair Bay  Road told" the hearing, "That  effluent has only one way to go,  downhill. My property is right  below it."  Other speakers elaborated on  the problem, saying that the  lower area already has a  flooding problem.  However, an environmental  engineer, speaking on behalf of  the Howatts, assured the people  at the meeting that the system  which has been designed for the  project,. spreading the effluent  over a broad area with a soil  depth of over 12 feet, will  disperse the liquid on the  Howatts' property.  Chairman Gordon Wilson  told people that he shared their  concerns and had requested that  the Waste Management Branch  do a study of the area and make  recommendations regarding the  proposed sewage disposal plans.  He>guaranteed that no decision  would be made regarding the  application until the study was  completed.  _* S * "V.**  j____tJj ^j: ... ,...^jv.,��  Fashions were paraded with flash and class at the Fitness Fashion  Fete presented by the Pender Harbour Aquatic Society last  weekend.

Nowhere is the graceless and unseemly bickering more  evident than in this matter of regional economic development. One would think, that, having agreed to participate  in the function for a year, the municipalities would be content to await developments and judge after the trial year.  But, no, great and unnecessary fuss must be made about  the title of the principal officer and righteous positions  struck about the hiring of that officer and petty and obdurate stances taken about the budget for the year. It is sad  and it is silly.  Let us ask the question, are the personnel policies of  Gibsons and Sechelt without reproach? Did not Gibsons  not too long ago watch as its mayor took the principal job  in the municipality in decidedly questionable fashion? Did  that same municipality not re-classify the position without  reposting it to satisfy the incumbent's salary demands?  Where does the righteousness come from?  Are Sechelt personnel policies above reproach? Did they  not hire an information or project officer not too long ago  without advertising the position? Is the municipal planner  presently incumbent the result of a valid job search?  Again, whence comes the rightousness?  The local government scene on the Sunshine Cost suffers principally from an absence of good will. It is sad to  see our elected representatives allowing themselves to be  inflamed into tiresome and fruitless parochialism.  John Bumside  Devious  Having said the above, it is only just to note that in the  strange business of the Elphinstone Community Plan'  reported on Page One, the chairman of the regional board,  Jim Gurney, is up to his old and devious tricks.  We do not know why Gurney felt it necessary to have a  special meeting called on a Monday morning to give his  plan fourth reading. Presumably his reasons were validly  in camera, though of that we cannot be sure.  What is sure is that in slick and tricky maneouvering  such as that, which Gurney allows himself from time to  time, lies the root cause of much of the municipal distrust.  It apparent endears him to the hard core and unquestioning supporters who elect him term after term but it poisons  the weU of local government.  That he outreached himself and the special meeting  could not be held, is of little consequence. Such  deviousness undoes the much good that Gurney has done  in local government and is a major contributing cause to  the endless suspicion with which regional government is  regarded.  John Burnside  5 YEARS AGO  A meeting called by Mayor Bud Koch of Sechelt to  discuss the future of the Sechelt Marsh is reported to  'have degenerated into a squabble' between Marsh  Society conservationists and developer Henry Hall.  Doug Roy, on behalf of the Marsh Society, reminded the  meeting that the protection of the marsh was called for in  the Sechelt Community Plan.  10 YEARS AGO  Forty-five local business people met at Gibsons  Legion Hall to resurrect the Chamber of Commerce, dormant since May 1, 1973. Mayor Larry Labonte and Mr.  Petty of the B.C. Chamber of Commerce were in attendance.  20 YEARS AGO  Honourable Isobel Dawson arrived from Ottawa to  present Pioneer Medallions to 12 Sechelt area residents  who had lived in Canada before 1892. Two were native  Indians, the others came to this area from Newfoundland, Quebec, Ontario, the prairie provinces and  B.C.  Names of recipients were: William Billingsley, Mary  Ellen Paul, Lindsay Nickson, Edith Paddon, Walter  Moberley George, Harry Buss, Edwin Dyer, Agnes Benjamin, Zilthia McCrea, Roland Reid, Samuel Dawe and  Lillian Walker.  30 YEARS AGO  Growth of population  on the Sunshine Coast is  reflected in figures announced by B.C. Telephone which  show 1,218 phones in use in the Pender Harbour,  Sechelt and Gibsons areas. This is an increase of 400  phones in two years and in recent months requests for  phones have been received at a rate of 20 per month.  40 YEARS AGO  Fred Willows, Selma Park storekeeper has been appointed Sechelt postmaster. The new location of the  post office will be at Mr. Willows' store with Mrs. H.  Burke as assistant postmistress.  The Sunshine  Publisher & Managing Editor  John Burnside  Co-Publisher  M.M.

The sawmill is of a circular head-rig and carriage design and operates on the principles of  sawyering that are over 100 years old. The only real changes to the  system are that instead of steam power, a diesel engine is used to  drive the circular cutting blade. The application of hydraulics is  utilized to move the log holding carriage along a set of tracks which  run parallel to the cutting blade. Ray, who has lived in the Sechelt  area for 47 years, acquired the mill in 1974 from a Mr. Best of Surrey B.C. Mr. Best built the mill with salvaged equipment from  other sawmills. It is capable of cutting up to 8000 board feet of  lumber per day and the carriage can handle logs 24 feet long and 28  inches in diameter. ���Kent Sheridan photo  Love those movies  Some have been writing off  the movies as an art and entertainment form since the advent  of television almost 30 years  ago. More recently, the rapidly  expanding availability of home  entertainment facilities which  make it possible to play movies  of your choice at low cost on  your television set at home has  also been pointed to as the cause  of the demise of the movies as a  central part of our lives.  But movies are fighting back  against home entertainment as  they fought back against the advent of television. And they are:  doing it quite simply by being  better than ever.  At this time of year Hollywood goes through its annual  Oscar fever, and this may be an  appropriate time to take a look  at the movie world and at some  of the movies which have graced  the screens in recent months.  This is by no means intended as  an exhaustive list of good  movies available nor is it any  high-blown attempt at cinematic criticism. Simply, a list of  some of the movies that I have  seen which have impressed with  the honesty of their themes and  the excellence of the presentation.  Let me begin by mentioning  one that I have not managed to  see yet but which bids fair to  dominate the Oscar awards,  whenever they are.  By all accounts, Platoon, a  cinematic treatment of the Vietnam War experience, directed  by a man who was there, stands  to take its place along with  Paths of Glory and All Quiet on  the Western Front as one of the  classically realisitic looks at the  horrors and realities of war.  Another visually beautiful  work with a haunting theme  was The Mission which just  closed a run at the local movie  house last week. This study of  the treatment of the Indians of  South America in the 17th Century by the European colonialists was stunningly beautiful  and featured stellar performances by Jeremy Irons and  Robert deNiro. Nor was its impact lessened by the sad  knowledge that the decimation  of American Indians continues  in Central and South America  to this day.  That low-key giant of the  movie industry, Woody Allen,  is also well served by Hannah  and her Sisters. Allen can still  deliver comic moments of pure  genius and they are set off  against backgrounds of character interaction which are both  closely observed and deeply  understood. Hannah and her  Sisters is a classic manifestation  of Allen's wry cinematic charm  and again the acting performances of the three sisters and  of Michael Caine and Allen  himself are uniformly of the  highest calibre.  A real sleeper to this movie  goer was the movie Round Midnight, starring the jazz musician  Dexter Gordon in a gently brilliant study of the last days of a  musician in Paris and New  York. It is a movie of surpassing and unpretentious beauty.  Another dandy just beginning to make the rounds is the  latest vehicle for Richard  Dreyfuss and Danny DeVito,  Tin Men. Dreyfuss and DeVito  give performances of brilliance  and restraint in this bittersweet  comedy which features a muscular realism which makes the  advertiser-dominated pap which  passes for comedy on the TV  screen look like the sickly  treacle it almost invariably is.  There have been wonderful  others:  Children of a Lesser  God, which recently played  locally, and the delight of  Crocodile Dundee which played  locally twice. That gentle  literary giant, E.M. Forster, has  been beautifully served in  cinematic treatments of A  Passage to India and A Room  with a View and I, an original  Trekkie, simply adored Star  TreklV.  Quite simply, I can't remem  ber the last movie that I didn't  like. The last dozen or so have  been wonderful. And for my  money, there's nothing like  huddling around your popcorn  and waiting for the curtains to  open in the movie house of your  choice and seeing movies first-  run in the size of screen they  were designed for.  Hl&rfWWJD    f^t-.lM_,J  Coast Lines  Just a catalogue of delights  by Nancy MacLarty  Just when I was wondering  what to write about this week,  the answer was delivered to me  via Canada Post. I became the  instant winner in not one, but  two different sweepstakes...and  all in one day? And to think I  almost used the winning  numbers to light the fireplace! It  just goes to show that not all of  those fat envelopes addressed to  you, or "occupant" contain so-  called junk mail.  Let me tell you about my  good fortune. First of all, The  Carrousel of Ideas has informed  me that my very own number,  2361, entitles me to an instant  prize of a .25 point diamond  solitaire ring right off the  bat...no purchase necessary!  Besides the diamond ring, I  have also been chosen to win  either a Sony 19 inch colour  television, a heart with another  .25 point diamond, a Toshiba  VCR or a Moulinex food processor. Again, no purchase is  necessary. Of course if I did  choose something from their  catalogue I would also have the  chance to win a 1987 Fiero  automobile!  Some of the more exciting  items in the catalogue are the  "Pretty Foot" electric calus  remover (their spelling of  callous, not mine); bathroom  fun plaques with witty sayings  like "Let's Potty and Let the  Good Times Roll"; a "Bible"  clock of artistically carved wood  with an inspirational "Footprints" message with a shim- '  mering star; and, my personal  favourite, "Musical Placemats  and Coasters" in snappy white  vinyl.  My other piece of good fortune comes from the Jay Norris  Company. This one was a little  harder to figure out because  there   were    16   separate  enclosures in the envelope. But,  I persisted, and what do you  know? I had won another  "dazzling" solitaire ring featuring a simulated handcrafted diamond...or a 1987 Chevy Nova  or a Florida holiday for two.  Jay Norris says I can find out  which for only $1.49 plus a purchase from their catalogue  which features electric callus  removers (their spelling) along  with personalized vinyl TV  Guide covers that include a  built-in clock and other items  such as 12 inch rustic woodgrain  scenes from Christ's life or a  telescoping duster that "will  make me feel 10 feet tall".  I have also won Jay Norris'  jackpot of four mystery prizes  (for 88 cents plus a purchase)  and another jackpot of five surprise gifts absolutely free with a  purchase of $29 or over.  But now, I find myself in a  dilemma.   The   Carrousel   of  Ideas offers me my .25 point  real diamond solitaire ring absolutely free, but to qualify I  have to give them my Social Insurance Number. I feel uncomfortable doing that, even for a  diamond ring.  The Jay Norris Company, on  the other hand, offers me a  simulated diamond ring and  nine different mystery prizes,  but I have to buy something  from their catalogue.  Maybe I'll go for Jay Norris.  I've always wanted a personalized TV Guide cover with a built-  in clock and imagine my  friend's delight when she opens  her birthday gift this June to  find an electric callus remover!  (I wish that Carrousel and Jay  would get together on the spelling of callous). But then again,  maybe I'll just follow my first  instinct and start the fire. After  all, there was frost this morning. Coast News, March 30,1987  3. :  Editor's Note: A copy of the  following letter was received for  publication and edited for  length.  Harold Long, MLA  !. As a physiotherapist I am  concerned about the $5 user fee  for physiotherapy services in  private clinics. I attended a  meeting where the Minister of  Health Dueck spoke regarding  this issue last Sunday, and am  convinced that we all have common goals: first to keep people  healthy and functioning, and second, if a health problem  develops, to return that person  to full functional capacity as  soon as possible at the least  cost.  I know you are incorrect in  thinking that this user fee will  decrease government costs.  What will probably happen in  fact is an increase in costs, and a  decrease in the system's ability  to get people returning to full  function, an increase in the time  of recovery, and a decrease in  effectiveness of treatments paid  for at higher cost. Here is why.  Suppose you had been out  mowing the lawn yesteray and  woke up today unable to move.  Your back hurts to sit, to stand,  even to lie down. You go to the  doctor. She says "Go to  physiotherapy."  Scenario one: you can go to a  private practitioner and pay the  $5 for each visit while the  medical services plan pays  $6.20. You are given pain relieving modalities which relax your  muscle spasm, and exercises to  help reduce the protrusion of a  disc which has been pinching a  nerve to your leg.  As you improve, you are  given exercises to strengthen  your weak abdominal wall to  prevent reoccurence of the problem, instructions on proper  warm ups to work and exercise,  and posture for sport, work and  rest.  . This takes six visits to the  physio at a total cost of $67.20  (you paid $30).  3. Scenario two: You do not  have much money, and decide,  to see if you can get along  without physio and tough it out.  Your back doesn't improve, but  continues to get worse, as you  keep trying to continue your activities.  : Two weeks later you return to  the doctor who says "Go to  physiotherapy!" Now you do.  Your condition is now extremely irritable. It improves for a  while, then back to square zero  each time you try to increase  your activity.  ; The doctor sends you to Vancouver to a specialist. You require a CAT scan which shows  an L5-S1 protruding disc. After  three months of pain they  decide to operate. You have to  wait eight more weeks to get  your operation.  '���' Your physio limit of 12 visits,  has long been used up, you have  had hospitalization and expensive diagnostic procedures and  another month of recovery  time...a tremendous cost of  time and money to both  yourself and the provincial  government.  7: Scenario three: You do not  care to spend $5, so opt to go to  the hospital where there is not a  user fee. You are told there is a  two week waiting list (the  'waiting list varies from one to  ���six weeks in B.C. hospitals).  You wait the two weeks with the  same results as in Scenario two  because of the delay in treatment.  Besides your 36 visits to the  hospital out-patient physio  department costing $33 each  (compared to $11.20 in private  practice clinics), you had to  drive from Gibsons to Sechelt  for your treatment which costs  Thanks  Editor:  Our heartfelt thanks to the  super crew of ladies for pounding the pavement on behalf of  the B.C.

My point is that the user fee  will encourage people to use the  hospital out-patient services,  waiting lists will go up, and the  cost to the budget to treat outpatients in the hospital is three  times the cost to treat in private  cinics who have lower operating  expenses.  Efficiency will decrease, effectiveness of treatment will  decrease because of time delays  and cost will increase. Hospital  physio departments must place  priority on in-patient services,  and unless there is more hiring,  will not be able to handle the extra burden without decreasing  the quality of the service.  The user fee will also encourage people who need the  service not to use it early in the  course of their symptoms,  which will increase the number  of chronic and more severe pro  blems and eventually be more  costly to the system. ���  The user groups who will suffer the most as the result of this  user fee decision are the elderly  on fixed income, parents of  handicapped children, people  with chronic disorders, the  working poor and nursing home  residents.  I try my darndest to provide a  quality service to the people of  the Gibsons area so they don't  have to drive to Sechelt when in  pain, and work harder than I  ever did while employed in  hospitals.   I  feel that  if you  would listen to me you would  accomplish your goal of saving  money by lowering the number  of CAT scans, back, knee,  shoulder, hip, etc., etc.  surgeries, arthrograms, x-rays,  and on and on.  What I am afraid of is that  you will hurt the practitioners  who now provide the cheapest  physio services available,  hospitals would have to pick up  the load at a greater cost to .you.  Please think twice about this  matter.  Kathryn A.

Just the same the recent  budget brought down in Victoria does make one wonder  about the thinking (or lack of  understanding), which produced some of the taxation  changes. Take this tax on  physiotherapy for example.  There is no doubt that our  health service is in trouble. It  wasn't designed to cope with the  escalating costs of the new  technology in medicine. Transplants, by-pass techniques, all  the equipment which has been  developed to save lives, all cost  enormous sums of money, more  than we can afford when the  economy isn't running in top  gear.  This is an issue which surely  demands a full and comprehensive public debate, involving as  it does moral as well as economic issues. It's something  we're obviously going to have to  come to grips with sooner or  later and putting it off won't  make it any easier. We'll just  lose by default what has been  probably the best universal  health care system in the world.  It doesn't make sense either to  try to patch things up with  band-aid taxes here and there  like the tax on physiotherapy.  Most particularly it doesn't  make sense to tax preventive  services. If we are going to have  to pay for medical services this  seems to be the wrong place to  On  journalism  If so, why not come along to  the Sechelt Arts Centre next  Wednesday at 7:30 pm, April'8.  John Burnside, owner-editor  of the Coast News has kindly  consented to speak on this subject at the monthly meeting of  the Suncoast Writers' Forge.  There are many of you out  there who would like to know  more about writing for newspapers. This will be your opportunity to ask questions and to  find out more of just what is involved in the production of a  newspaper.  Refreshments will be served  r's review  budget  cut. Physiotherapy speeds up  healing and puts people back to  work faster, thus increasing  productivity in the ^workplace.  It's not an area where it pays to  take short cuts or to penalize  people for getting the care they  need.  Physiotherapy also serves an  important role in keeping the  elderly fit and active, enabling  them to continue to look after  themselves and to cope with the  inevitable diminishing flexibility  most of us suffer from with advancing years.  This is something which saves  everyone money in the long run.  Again why would the government deliberatly set out to  discourage this sort of preventive treatment? It's almost as  though they think it is a frill or a  luxury.  Private physiotherapy clinics  have sprung up to fill a need  and to take a hurden off the  hospitals which have their own  problems of living within then-  budgets and still providing the  services which doctors want for.  their patients. Now these clinics  as well as other small businesses  are being asked to pay an extra  three per cent tax.  It strikes me as very odd that  a government whose members  are almost all from the ranks of  small business should apparently not understand the important  role of such entrepreneurs to the  economy. They seem to have  great difficulty in being consistent.  They talk endlessly of the importance of the private sector,  describing it as the panacea of  all our ills, how it's going to  create all those new jobs which  will put everyone back to work  and keep the economy on a roll,  and then make it harder for  them to expand or re-fit or  perhaps even to survive, by taking away the money they could  put back into their businesses.  It doesn't seem logical to me,  but then I'm not an economist  so perhaps someone can explain  to me how these taxes are supposed to improve things and  help us out of the recession?  and  'mini-auction"   of  goodies.

What a bargain!  7* Forty cents for a return trip  ~from Browning Road to Sechelt  -certainly makes the Vancouver  >city buses seem like a ripoff!  It cost more to ride from the  : Roberts Creek Post- Office but  ; not much. The fares don't even  ; cover the gas, I'm sure, but ap-  ; parently George Hopkins chose  ^to continue the service at the  -minimal price even when it  -became too much hassle to get  'the merchants to subsidize it.  The regular passengers realize  ;". what a bargain it is and kick in a  "little extra money. They also try  to use the service as much as  possible to show their support.  They appreciate being able to  -count on a ride to Sechelt for  shopping,   medical   appointments, or other errands. Some  even do their grocery shopping  and have it delivered by Shop  ;Easy for a modest charge.  [��� The   bus   leaves  downtown  - Roberts Creek about 9:45 every  Thursday morning and picks up  people all along the route to  Sechelt. It makes several stops  in Sechelt, ending at the mall,  and that's where it leaves from  at 12 sharp.  Like the mini-bus, it's a great  service and helps to fill that  public transportation gap. I  recommend it. I even found  school bus seats are much more  comfortable than they used to  be!

Get a group together and join  lis. Don't miss a good time."  Aloha  ' This really is the last of news  clippings from Honolulu and  Maui papers of recent date. For  instance, State legislative committees debate a constitutional  amendment that would make  school boards appointed rather  than elected.  What the background of this  is I don't know, but the debate  led to a letter to the editor by a  Paul C. Payne, "the quality of  the school board would greatly  exceed what exists under the  present (elected) system."  And the letter continues,  "With few exceptions, the present elected board consists of a  strange collection of mediocrities with no particular  qualifications in the field of  education."  If that soulds like lively  public interest, hear this: The  elected governor now has an  election promise to fulfill;  namely, more money for  teachers. Election promises...  In this regard a committee  recommends a financial bonus  for teachers. And this two per  cent bonus would be in addition  to negotiated salary. All this to  make teaching in Hawaii more  attractive.  But these are bills still only in  committee, however.  Still in committee is a bill to  give the right to negotiate class  size. And another would make  an assault upon a teacher a  felony with a fine and prison,  and not a misdemeanor only.  The elderly gentlemen combing the beaches with their metal  detectors cause the young to  stare. Perhaps the detectors are  gifts from the wives just to get  the husbands out of the apartments.  A comentator writes of the  rainbow myth, the happy racial  melting pot of Hawaii.  The state is not at all free of  discrimination by ethnic origin.  Folk stick with their own kind  and exclude others. Blacks and  Samoans feel they suffer by prejudice. Fights in schools break  out from time to time, the lines  are drawn between races.  Prison inmates are 40 per  cent native Hawaiian, and from  the same group come the refuse  collectors.  How's our B.C. rainbow  myth doing these days?  =docksfde=  pbaRrraaqy  ���v  *&  and  ,,,      EXCLUSIVE  to Dockside Pharmacy  Halfmoon Bay Happenings  Firemen like numbers  ; by Ruth Forrester, 885-2418  The Halfmoon Bay volunteer  'firemen are stressing the importance of placing your new house  Inumbers distinctly on your property.

'     However, the parents of the  child agreed that if the dog  could be shipped out to a home  elsewhere, the dog's life would  be spared. This particular incident did have a satisfactory ending, but once again dog owners  are being warned about letting  their animal run loose, it could  be fatal for your dog.

If'there are any retired  hard-rock miners in the community, the sound will be  reminiscent of the emergency  whistle blown to signal trouble  at a mine, but in this case, it's  the new fire alarms mounted  atop the Garden Bay and  Madeira Park firehalls.'  The purpose of these devices  is to alert the volunteer firemen  that a call has been received.  Although each and every  fireman is telephoned by the  ladies on the fire phone, the two  alarms allow firemen within  hearing range of them to respond even more quickly.  On the subject of emergency  responses, a reminder to all  drivers that you must pull over  when being overtaken or approached by a fire truck, ambulance or police vehicle that  has emergency lights operating.  It has been reported that  some local motorists are ignoring this law, which not only  delays the emergency vehicle  but also could lead to a serious  accident.  Remember to pull over, one  day you might need the fire  department, police or ambulance, and every minute  counts in an emergency!

Many Happy Returns, Miss Steele! ���Fran Bumside photo  Crane criticizes  theatre project  by Penny Fuller  A letter from Allan Crean  Crane received at the regional  district meeting on Thursday  night, criticized the Economic  Development Commission  (EDC) endorsement of the Gibsons Landing Theatre Project.  The letter, which called for  demographic studies and  surveys, and an independent  financial and marketing study,  was referred to the EDC and the  Arts Liaison Committee which  met the next day.  Rai Purdy, president of the  Eileen Glassford Foundation,  which is spearheading the Gibsons Landing Theatre, was at  the meeting to discuss the project and answer questions.  He told the committee that  the group had met last week  with Richard Schick, the artistic  director of the Gateway Theatre  in Richmond.  "Mr. Schick was very upset  about the article that Mr. Crane  ; wrote several weeks ago because  : he felt he had been grossly misquoted," he stated.  At their meeting, Purdy said,  '������ Schick felt that the site chosen  Ifor the theatre was "outstandingly right" and that with  ! careful planning "there is no  reason why it can't be built for  $1.5 million."  Chairman Gordon Wilson, in  dealing with Crane's letter, ignored the attacks on the foundation and concentrated on the  idea of a study.  Although Purdy maintained  that the theatre could be self-  supporting, with no mortgage,  and no overhead when the  theatre was not in use, Wilson  was sceptical. He suggested that  rather than have the burden of  maintaining the theatre fall  unexpectedly on taxpayers  shoulders, the foundation  should involve the community  from the beginning.  Wilson suggested that the  foundation consider conducting  a study to evaluate community  support for the project. If there  is enought support, the possibility of holding a referendum  on a tax levy could be explored.  "Property owners might be  willing to support a first class  theatre facility if it only cost $5  or so a year," he said.  He emphasized the positive  aspects of involving the community so that people felt the  new facility belonged to them.  Mr. Purdy agreed to take the  committee's ideas back to his  organization.

The Burrard Peninsula was  still heavily wooded at the time  of Jerry Rogers' death but the  task of dropping the trees was  continued by other determined  men. Rogers' direct successor, a  crusty Scot called Angus Fraser,  was the most notable of these  latter logging bosses. Under his  command, the job of wresting  the land from the forest giants  went on without let-up.  Although bull teams were still  his main mode of log hauling,  Fraser continued to use Rogers'  traction engines in the English  Bay area. On the south side of  the peninsula, he was obliged to  institute a new log-moving  method. Faced with wide stretches of tideflat, Fraser was  obliged to dig several deep trenches and float the timber across  the mud to open water. But he  kept the wood moving.  Angus Fraser was the most  important of the logging bosses  to work the Burrard Peninsula  in the post-Jerry Rogers period  but he had a few competitors.  The team of Daggett and Fury  (their Christian names are oddly  missing from the contemporary  records), also worked the north  arm of the Fraser and the Point  Grey area. All the men worked  as contractors for the Hastings  Timber Company, which had  taken over the sawmill established by Captain Edward  Stamp.  It took 25 years for the combined efforts of Jerry Rogers  and the men who followed him,  to clear the general site of Van  couver. This process was accelerated in 1886 by the famous  fire that almost totally  destroyed the fledgeling village  of Granville (formerly Gas-  town).The holocaust triggered a  huge rebuilding boom and, by  1898, the basic downtown core  of the city we know today, had  been solidly established.  Now the loggers began to  migrate north and the real  plunder of the B.C. coast got  underway. It was the beginning  of the period known to nostalgia buffs as The Glory Days of  Logging. Just how gorious they  really were depends very much  on your point of view.

AH 'too frequently, genuine literary talent walks hand  in hand with an ego of epic proportions. But there are certainly  refreshing exceptions. The late  John Masefield is a good example of a man who, despite his  many accomplishments, always  managed to keep himself in  realistic perspective. In her  perceptive biography: John  Masefield - A Life (Hamish  Hamilton), Constance Bab-  ington Smith gives a well-  rounded portrait of this self-  effacing man of letters.  Masefield was a prolific  writer of both poetry and prose  for all his long adult life. Oddly  enough however, he is still best  known for several very early  poems that appeared in his first  collection Salt Water Ballads,  particularly Sea Fever which  begins: _   .  / must go down to the sea again,  To the lonely sea and sky,  And all I want is a tall ship,  And a star to steer her by.  John Masefield came by his  nautical knowledge quite  legitimately. Born in 1878 to a  genteel family, he spent a  relatively idyllic childhood,  marred by the death of his  mother when he was seven.  Masefield's father, a  solicitor, was shattered by the  loss. His practice dwindled and  the family fell upon lean times.  At 13, John was sent to study  aboard a "school ship", a  curious institution maintained  by the sailing ship companies to  train boys for service in the merchant marine.  Masefield took naturally to  the salty life and did well in his  studies. After graduation, he  signed as an apprentice on a  clipper ship and sailed round  the Horn. The stormy voyage  stirred his imagination and he  kept a detailed journal.  Already Masefield was abandoning his plans for a career at  sea, however. He determined instead, to become a writer.  To further this ambition,  Masefield took another berth  on a mail packet to New York  and jumped ship there, eager to  see North America. Here he  Rhythms of Life  Star house system  by Penny Fuller  In studying, the skies and  compiling information over the  centuries, astrologers discovered  that activity in a given section of  the heavens seemed to correlate  to activity in certain areas of a  persons life. Mathematical computations were made and what  has become known as the  "house system" was developed.  Throughout the years,  various ambitious astrologers  have fine-tuned the original  calculations so there are some  variations which may occur  depending on which system is  used, but they are minor.  The house system divides the  skies into 12 theoretical sections  which correspond to 12 areas of  life:  The astrological sign on the  dividing line between each section tells a lot about what kinds  of things happen in that area of  an individual's life. For example: if you have Leo sitting on  the line which starts the "10th  house" section when you're  born, this describes major  career inclinations which will  probably keep you in the public  eye:  Channel 11  TUESDAY, MARCH 31  7:00 PM  '      School Board Speaks Out  This month the budget is the  topic  with  clips  from  Cedar  ^ Grove's   Rick .

On the other hand, if you  have the preceding sign,  Cancer, on that location, you'll  probably be known in the world  as some form of "nurturer"  and associated more with the  home.  The main determination of  which sign falls on which line  depends on the time that you  were born. Four minutes can  mean the difference between  having Cancer or Leo on that  line. This is one of the reasons  the modern astrologers emphasize personal choice rather  than predestination. Nobody  wants to see some poor woman  in the delivery room trying to  time her delivery to give her  baby the best possible aspects.  People have been known to do  crazier things for their kids.  Besides, no intelligent person is  going to swallow the idea that  four minutes difference in your  birth tie can change your whole  life.  When an eclipse occurs, as it  did Sunday morning at 4:46, the  moon is either exactly in the  same location in the sky as the  sun (solar eclipse) or exactly opposite the sun (lunar eclipse).  Where that location is on your  birth chart indicates what area  your life will be emphasized until the next solar/lunar eclipse^  (about six months).  Take note of what issues  seem to be cropping up during  the next couple of weeks,  whether they relate to marriage,  job, parents, kids or whatever.  They'll probably keep on coming back through the next few  months until you handle them  constructively.

Masefield washed glasses in a  bar, worked in a textile mill and  even became a hobo for a brief  period. In his spare time, he  wrote. These experiences gave  Masefield a lifelong compassion  for the world's underprivileged.  Masefield returned to  England in due course and settled down to his chosen profession, scratching out a meagre  living as a journalist and writing  poems on the side. He became  friendly with several other  writers, most importantly, WB  Yeats. Yeats encouraged Masefield to publish his Salt Water  Ballads, which gained him his  first acclaim.  Masefield went on to write  several plays and more volumes  of poetry. He fell in love with  and subsequently married Constance Crommelin, a school  teacher some years older than  himself. Despite the age disparity, it was a successful match  that produced a son and a  daughter.  ������" In 1911, Masefield published  The Everlasting Mercy, a long  narrative poem that enjoyed  both commercial and critical  success establishing him once  and for all as a major voice in  English poetry.  Masefield saw distinguished  service with the Red Cross during World War I. He went on to  write many more books -poetry,  novels, plays, and essays. In  1930, he was named Poet  Laureate, a position he was to  hold until the day of his death in  1967, longer than any other  poet except Tennyson.  John Masefield was unstin-  tingly helpful to younger writers  throughout his long and  distinguished career. Like his  friend, Yeats, he remained prolific into advanced age but his  modesty and compassion for  human suffering, never deserted  him.

Well, whether that's true or  not is neither here nor there, what's certain is that the current cook at  the Omega is truly Greek and needs no lessons whatsoever. I adore  Greek food and am an incorrigible cynic when it comes to Canadian-  made Greek food but nevertheless I keep on trying. In fact, I was  beginning to think that there was no such thing as real Greek flavour  outside Hellas, but at last, to my absolute joy it does exist and it's  here in Gibsons.  My partner and I sauntered into the Omega on a Thursday evening  for the sole purpose of avoiding my own home-cooking. Its been  years since I've been there and thought it would be nice for a change.  After thoroughly inspecting the menu, there was little doubt in my  mind I was going to give the Omega's Hellenic offerings a chance.  We began our meal by sharing a small Greek salad. After all, there is  not much that can go wrong with that. The fact that there were no  purple onions on the plate can be forgiven because I know how hard  they can be to get, but, can I be wrong...was there really no vinegar!  Fantastic! Just olive oil...the way it's supposed to be. Things were  looking up already!  The special entree for the evening was Kalamari on a bed of rice  accompanied with another Greek salad and, at my request, tonnes of  tzatzikki. The coating on those precious little bits of squid was  deliciously thin and crispy, the squid themselves were miles away  from the rubberiness they can get to when overcooked, the rice pilaf  was fragrant, and the tzatzikki was so full of garlic I thought I had  died and gone to heaven. My partner's choice was prawns, served on  pita bread with rice and vegetables. They were so succulent and  flavourful that I barely escaped with the one I snitched. We literally  desecrated our meals, they were so very good.  While considering the dessert menu I could have cried, when I saw  that there was no baclava. What a perfect ending that would have  been. I can't say I was too devastated though since there was, after  all, cheesecake with strawberries and whipped cream and chocolate  cake to choose from. We had one of each. And they were not in the  least disappointing.

Remove large stones and sieve  some soil into a barrow. Make  furrows with a hoe.  Fill with free matured  sawdust. Sprinkle with water  and plant as directed on  package. Label with date and  ���variety. You can then put some  sieved soil on top but not too  much.  If you want to save yourself  work as I do, mulch the rows  with spoiled hay, leaving at least  four to six inches in the centre  exposed until seedlings come  through. Then put in hay closer  to shoots, so no weeds can survive.  The above article is mainly  for those who may be new to  gardening. Most experienced  gardeners have their own  method which suits them.  "Why mulch" you say? We  mulch to feed the soil naturally  from the top, with essential  organic matter crucial for a vital  healthy garden.  Get busy planting annuals  and vegetables now.

In talking about her work  Nomi says, "There is a  neighbourhood in Brooklyn,  New York, that has been my  -work location for the last.three  years, even though Triave only  actually spent two; weeks there,  off and on.  "To me, the location is the  dirtiest,   most   frightening,  poorest,   most   unpleasant,'  noisiest, most exhilirating place  that I have ever seen.  "Maybe it serves as a springboard into my unconscious  mind and loosens my imagination. Maybe it helps me overcome my taboos as an artist.  In the fall of 1986 I  returned to collage making with  fresh insights."  There will be a reception for  the artist on Sunday, April 5  from 2 to 4 pm. All are  welcome.  As an additional feature to  this exhibition Nomi will be  holding a collage workshop on  Saturday, April 11 from 3 to 6  pm. Anyone can do it! The fee  is_$10.

The Robinsons are part of the newly formed Family Support Institute, a group to assist those dealing with the handicapped. ���Fran Bumside photo  The subject of child abuse  brought trustees into heavy  debate at Tuesday's school  board meeting. The struggle  erupted over the usage of some  words in the subcommittee  recommendations from the  British Columbia School  Trustees Association (BCSTA)  and Sullivan reports.  What happens if there is an  accusation, an investigation is  initiated, and for whatever  reason the accusation is  withdrawn? Where the board  was unable to make a decision  why charges were dropped, the  committee recommended instead of saying "unfounded" it  should say "unproven". But  being precise can leave innuen-  dos.  "Sometimes you can't prove  innocence and can't prove guilty," was Trustee Doris Fuller's  concern. "We can't afford the  luxury to doubt. It would be denying due process."  "Students have rights too,"  Trustee David Mewhort argued.  "It is not law but a set of  recommendations. The committee suggests calling it as you see  it."  Trustee Al Lloyd agreed,  "We don't have to decide not  guilty or guilty."  Fuller pointed out that the  public tends to think, "Where  there is smoke there is fire." "If  charges are not proven then the  person must be completely exonerated," she said.  Trustee Judy Wilson added  that if charges were left "un-  proven".then the board had an  obligation to remove the person  in question.  The board voted to delete the  committee's recommendation.

A mother with a seven year  old handicapped girl, worried  because the school system  doesn't seem to have any individual plan for her child and  is having problems getting  straight answers from teachers.  A mother with a seriously  hearing impaired child.  These were just some of the  Coast residents who attended  the first meeting of the Family  Support Institute (FSI) last  Wednesday in Gibsons. The  meeting was held at the home of  Reg and Mary Robinson who  have adopted a Downes Syndrome boy and have fostered  other disabled children.  The Institute, the first of its  kind in Canada, was established  in the fall of 1986 in response to  the needs and requests of such  parents. Initiated by British  Columbians for Mentally Handicapped People, the purpose of  the institute is to strengthen  families of disabled people  through the provision of information, training "and network^  ing opportunties. }  Vickie Cammack of FSI  spoke at Wednesday's meeting  and then listened to parents express frustration with government agencies, professionals  and the school system. Mrs.  Cammack told the group that  these frustrations and concerns  were identical to those of  parents all over B.C. She stressed the point that the parents  were the experts in most cases  because they knew the child  best.  "Professionals are not always  right...there's a new wave of  'parent power' sweeping B.C.  and the shift is to helping and  counselling the family as a  whole instead of the strict concentration of the handicapped  individual." Mrs. Cammack  went on to say, "Families of  handicapped people want information on services and they're  demanding more training for  teachers in special education  and help in the transition into  the education system."  According to Mrs. Cammack, "FSI works as a conduit  of information assisting parents  in networking and linking  groups , of parents through  workshops that deal with common problems."  One of the most common  problems expressed by parents  at the meeting was the lack of  respite care, especially in the  home. Parents need some time  off...a few hours to devote to  themselves or to other members  of the family. Caring for a handicapped child allows very little  of this and can be the cause of  emotional stress, depression and  even family breakup.  In most cases, a few hours a  week volunteered by a caring  neighbour can help diffuse the  situation. However, too few  people volunteer and most  parents are reticent to ask.  Almost before the meeting  was over, the first stage of networking on the Coast began  WANTED  Used Furniture  and What Have You  AL'S USED  FURNITURE  We buy Beer Bottles  886-2812  with parents exchanging phone  numbers and sharing common  concerns, but there were only a  few parents there.  Organizers say that to make a  family support group work here  on the Coast, more people must  join. Besides the moral support  to be gained, all sorts on information about tax breaks at all  three government levels, grants  for home renovations, lobbying  tactics, the right to home support workers, etc. is available.  If you have a child with a  handicap, or know someone  who does, you are urged to contact Mary Robinson at 886-2382  or Elise at 885-4642.  For parents with older sons  or daughters, the Sunshine  Association for the Handicapped is asking for input on needs  regarding life and leisure skills,  work training, the possibility of  a group home on the Coast and  respite care.  A meeting is being planned  for the last week in April to  discuss these and other topics. If  you are a parent or caregiver of  an older handicapped person,  the association asks you to contact either Liz Wilson at  883-9124 or Nancy MacLarty at  885-5473 for more information.

The amendment consists of  prohibiting the burning of  chemically treated wood at the  site.  A copy of the amended Permit  may be viewed at 15326-103A  Avenue, Surrey, British Columbia, V3R 7A2, (telephone:  584-8822), during normal  business hours.  Dated at Surrey March 24,  1987.  IH.Y. Wong,  jRegional Waste Manager.  Above: Jack Dempster, one of Port Mellon's Kamyr Cooks, surveys the instrument display panel in the Kamyr digester control room. Right: The  Kamyr continuous digester, installed at the mill in the early 60's, stands over  138 feet in height and has a liquid capacity of 126,400 gallons (US).  r  ���Kent Sheridan photo  Pulpmakers of Port Mellon  Digesters do the cooking  ,*?  ^  by Kent Sheridan  Previous articles on the Steam and  Recovery, Caustic and Kilns, and the  Chip Handling departments described  the processes that are necessary for the  digesters to fulfill their role in producing  pulp at Port Mellon.  There are two types of pressure cooking vessels (digesters) in the pulp mill;  Kamyr Continuous Digesters and Batch  Digesters.  The Kamyr Cook, named for the company that designed the digester, operates  two continuous digesters and the principles of cooking are the same for both.  The fundamental characteristic of the  continuous digester is that while chips  are constantly being fed into the top of  the digester, against digester pressure  (175 pounds per square inch), softened  wood chips are simultaneously being  forced out of the bottom of the vessel to  a storage tank which is at atmospheric  pressure (14.7 PSI). It is the sudden  release of cooking pressure that causes  the cooked chips to explode, forming a  dark brown pulp.  As part of his job, the Kamyr  Operator must carefully control liquor to  wood ratio, digester pressure and maintain a close monitoring of the liquor and  chips as they simultaneously pass down  through the digester's different cooking  stages.  The Kamyr helper-is the cook's right  hand man. He does tests on pulp and liquor samples and routinely inspects  equipment associated with the digester.  The two Batch digesters cook chips in  a non-continuous manner and can be  likened to a home pressure cooker but on  a much larger scale.  The Batch Cook fills an empty  digester with chips and cooking liquor  then seals the digester off and applies  steam to a heater that has liquor circulating through it.  The hot liquor creates a temperature  and pressure rise inside the digester and  when it reaches 340�� fahrenheit and 100  pounds per square inch the steam is shut  off and the chip liquor mix cooks for a  set period.  The cook opens a valve at the bottom; ij  of the digester releasing the softened;!]  wood chips into a storage tank. This cy-;|i  cle is repeated every three and a half***  hours. li'.j  An Area Utility man is kept busy with'*3  housekeeping and is always on call to*;*  assist operating personnel. ��� %  The Batch and Kamyr Digesters can;��  cook up to 850 tonnes of pulp per day.;"*  They are key pieces of equipment and;**  the operation of subsequent systems inC*  the mill are directly affected by the effi~r~  ciency of the cooking process. TheP;*  washing and screening of the pulp will be��>  featured in the next article.

Last week's winner was Lisa Tyson of RR 1, Tyson Road, Sechelt who correctly  located the old tractors in the pasture at the end of Norwest Bay  Road in Sechelt.  Bickering over  EDC budget  Sunshine Coast Regional  District Chairman Jim Gurney  insisted that municipal representatives Joyce Kolibas and Norm  Peterson explain each of their  objections to the Economic  Development Commission  (EDC) section of the 1987  budget at the regular meeting of  the board last week. f  When the vote was taken on  the budget, Sechelt and Gibsons  voted against it. Although consensus is not necessary for the  budget to pass, Gurney stopped'  the meeting and asked the  representatives what their objections were.  Both Peterson and Kolibas  indicated that they weren't happy with the EDC allocation so  the chairman took a vote on the  budget excluding that section.  He then took the board through  the EDC section item by item.  As the two aldermen stated  their concerns and asked questions on each item, Gurney explained the background and rationale, and then a vote was  taken on each category. The  aldermen still voted against  many of the items, of particular  concern was $55,000 allocated  to consultants fees.  Gordon Wilson pointed out  that although the overall budget  for the EDC had increased,  many of the categories were  significantly lower. He quoted  the following figures: Travel  and Entertainment, (1985)  $7864, (1987) $2700; Salaries,  (1985) $97,039, (1987) $57,620;  Rentals and Tradeshows, (1985)  $1420, (1987) $600; Office Supplies, (1985) $4065, (1987)  $1000; Telephone and Postage,  (1985) $4566, (1987) $1500.  In a later conversation with  the Coast News Wilson explained that the EDC has decided to  privatize the office, contracting  out to professionals who can  give the best value for the  money.  "In the past," he said, "we  spent $95,000 toward one industry, aquaculture. This year  we're spending $55,000 on  diverse areas of expertise.  "These include the industrial  site survey, the Small Business  Centre, forestry, tourism, the  retirement industry and the arts  community. We have a better  shot at developing a diverse  economy."  Regarding the handling of the  budget debate, Wilson said,  "It's unfortunate that, having  mmersion  controversy  simmers  In a persuasive and persistent  plea at Tuesday's School Board  meeting, parent Laara Dalen attempted to have the previous  decision on French Immersion  reversed. In her view, the school  board has not come up with any  valid reason for centralizing  French Immersion in Davis Bay  and would like to hear an explanation she can understand.  She and co-petitioners, Jane  Milks and Helen Robinson, had  attended with the hope of having some discussion with the  board. When thanked for her  presentation Mrs. Dalen stood  her ground and pointedly asked  if and when her presentation  would be considered. The board  conceded to discuss her petition.  Following the meeting Mrs.  Dalen made it clear she was not  speaking for the organization  Parents For French but said  there were a significant number  of independent parents who did  not want the issue laid to rest.  "It would be different if we  were dealing with ditches," she  said.  had at least four prepatory  meetings in building the budget,  the chairman felt it was  necessary to go over each item.  There had been ample time to  debate those items and it should  have been handled in committee."  When the complete budget  was finally put to a vote, Sechelt  Alderman Joyce Kolibas voted  against it and Gibsons Alderman Norm Peterson abstained.  ECONOMY  PERFORMANCE    _    ���.
