 Legislative Library  Parliament Buildings  Victoria, BC V8V 1X4  87.6  Press release  Teachers in  work stoppage  At noon sharp last Sunday children, with their antennae honed,  flooded Holland Park in Gibsons to search for and find the eggs  In meeting with MLA  No transport results achieved  The Sunshine Coast Teachers  Association (SCTA), along with  other provincial teacher associations had been hoping for a  deferral of job action as a result  of the Ministry's offer of  discussions regarding Bill 20. It  is with great regret that we now  hear the the government has  chosen to proceed with second  reading of the bill just as talks  were commencing. This is  perceived as a direct betrayal of  the talks and it now appears  that action is inevitable.  B.C. Teachers Federation  president Elsie McMurphy said  of the government's action, "I  am angry and disappointed. I  find it incomprehensible that  the government would sabotage  our discussions before they even  got started."  Unless the government takes  immediate action to lift the bills  from the legislative agenda and  submit them to real and comprehensive amendments, Sunshine Coast teachers will be  withdrawing services on Tuesday, April 28 for a full day  study session.  Parents should be aware that  this will mean no instruction or  supervision at schools on Tuesday, and would be well advised  not to send students to school if  the withdrawal of services pro-  cedes. It is our understanding  that the Board of Trustees will  communicate with parents  through a newsletter and, if  necessary, through announcements on CBC FM radio  690 and Mountain FM.  This action will be followed  by an "Instruction Only" campaign during which teachers will  be providing normal classroom  instruction, but no extra--  curricular participation.  Teachers will not be present at  schools until 30 minutes prior to  class and will be leaving no later  than 30 minutes after class.  The SCTA will be holding  public meetings next week to  advise parents and the public of  their concerns for education  under the new legislation. These  meetings will be at 7:30 pm as  follows: Elphinstone Secondary, Gibsons, Tuesday, April  28; Chatelech Secondary,  Sechelt, Wednesday, April 29;  and Pender Harbour Secondary, Thursday, April 30.  The SCTA sincerely regrets  the inconvenience to parents  and students, however ����� we  believe that the effects of this  proposed legislation not only on  teachers, but on the education  system as a whole, are serious  enough that demonstrative action is essential.  ; A recent meeting between  members of the Sunshine Coast  Regional 7X)is1trict?;;'tSCKD)'  Transportation Task Force and  MLA Harold Long "set up a  rapport with our MLA" but  faded to get any concrete  results, task force chairman  John Shaske reported to the  Transportation Committee last  week.  The question of a 10:30 am  ferry sailing had become a non-  issue by the time the meeting occurred since the B.C. Ferry Corporation had announced that  once the sailing was started on  May 15, it would stay on,the  schedule indefinitely while the  ICRD on tour  corporation watches how much  it's used.   ._    ..���._. 7......���..--.-,.,  : An adjustment to scheduling  of the ferries to accomodate  connections between Langdale  and Nanaimo, and the question  of a permanent late sailing will  be "looked into" Long promised the group.  Shaske's report of the MLA's  comments regarding the  Highway 101 by-pass brought a  slow but blistering diatribe from  Area A Director Gordon  Wilson. Several minutes after  the chairman related that the  by-pass was a "low priority"  and that Long had suggested  any pressuring for action on it  would cause the improvements  to Highway 101 to bedome "an  even lower "pHpBt^': $fWoi&  raised his hand to speak.  "I've been trying to bite my  tongue," he told the meeting, j  "but I'm furious at the response  we got about the highway bypass. Every semi-trailer truck  that drives this coast is a hazard,  whether it's empty or full. They  barrel down that goat path past  the Jolly Roger and as summer  approaches we have more and  more cyclists, campers, tourists  and horseback riders on the  road. Someone's going to be  killed and I hope this government is prepared to take respon  sibility for that. They promised  iri rae last election that if this  'M&ta went Sooted,, these things  ; Would be dealt with."  The committee passed a  recommendation that the  Economic Development Commission take up the course of  the late night sailing and connections to Nanaimo.  Later in the meeting, a  recommendation was passed  that the regional district write to  the Canadian Transport Commission asking them to require  that all tankers carry a placard  stating the contents of then-  load. It was felt that this would  help in the handling of any accidents in which a tanker truck  might be involved.  Farrington Cove  By-laws which' will provide  for the rezoning necessary to the  Farrington Cove subdivision  development will be receiving  third reading after that recommendation was passed at last  week's meeting of the regional  district planning committee.  Director Jim Gurney seconded the motion to recommend  third reading but followed it  with cautionary remarks to the  developers. He pointed out that  after third reading, the by-laws  will go to the Ministry of  Municipal Affairs for their acceptance before being returned  nt goes  to   the   regional   district   for  reconsideration and adoption.  Gurney said he would not be  prepared to vote for adoption  of the by-laws at that time  unless district engineers had  confirmed that the sewage  disposal system proposed by the  developers would be compatible  with an overall sewer system  which may be constructed in the  area at a future date.  "We know that there's an  ongoing sewage problem in  Pender Harbour," he said,  "eventually that's going to have  to be addressed."  Foreshore inspeotion  by Ken Collins  r Friday, April 24, members of  the Regional District Foreshore  Committee toured Sechelt Inlet.  Trie purpose of the six hour  field trip was for committee  members to get a visual perspective on the impact of the variety  ofland and waterlot leases in  the area.  ��� Participants included  Regional Board Directors Brett  McGillvray, Jack Marsden and  Gordon Wilson. Henry Boas  y/as there from the Ministry of  Forests and Lands as was  coastal planner Catherine Ber-  iis. Committee member Art  Giroux was guide and skipper  utilizing the MV Tzoonie.  I There are approximately two  dozen fish and shellfish farms  leasing lots in the inlet. To  rhany, aquaculture is viewed as  the new gold rush and the  panacea for a fragile economy.  The inlet presently contains  eight marine parks and there are  obvious conflicts between industry and recreation. Tourists  want to see raw unspoiled  nature. Logging scars and industrial noise may drive these  people elsewhere. Local  residents may want to retain the  esthetic qualities they believe to  be their heritage.  As well as eagles and many  aquatic birds, Sechelt Inlet stiU  attracts seals, killer whales and  porpoises. Can aquaculture  peacefully co-exist with these  natural predators of salmon?  Kfo one knows yet. It is this and  countless other questions that  the Foreshore Committee is attempting to come to terms with  in a fair and democratic manner.  Logging and aquaculture are  facts of life. They are not a poor  man's sport. To say that  millions are to be made or lost is  not an understatement. One of  the farms visited is spending  over $1000 a day just on feed.  The individuals behind these  farms have a primary responsibility to protect their investments.  A few rninutes after leaving  the dock the committee came  across a cliff upon which were  some old petroglyphs. Access  was blocked by an oyster farm.  Turning the corner into Narrows Inlet the group was greeted  by  a  logging  scar  that   ter  minated at the water's edge.  A short time later a huge half  sunken shed from one of the  fish farms was passed. Apparently it had sunk at the  beginning of the week and was  either towed or drifted to where  it was partially beached on  Crown Land.  Just outside of Narrows Inlet  was a rockly islet where dozens  of seals were enjoying the sunshine. These situations cannot  be viewed from behind a desk.  Thursday, April 30, the  Foreshore Committee will be  meeting at 9 am at the regional  board office to work on a proposal for future foreshore  study. It is the type of committee that encourages input from  the public.  "Seawaik is to  protect our sewers  99  "I think people have to  remember that the seawaik is  there to protect our sewer line  and that is first and foremost,"  emphasized Mayor Diane  Strom at last Tuesday's Gibsons  Council meeting. Her comments were made in reference to  a letter from W.M. Mitchell and  B. Yates.  The two residents listed a  variety of reasons for council to  consider dirt with clover as a  surfacing material for the  seawaik.  One of their concerns warranted attention from Alder  man Norm Peterson. The fact  that wheelchairs and strollers  cannot negotiate gravel will  make the seawaik inaccessible  to many people. "As much as  we can within our budget, I just  think we should try to make it  accessible to as many people as  possible," he told the meeting.  Public works foreman Bob  Marchand reassured Peterson  that his plans were to cover the  gravel with sand, which would  accomodate light strollers  although wheelchairs will likely  be unable to maneuver on the  surfacing  John Bolton of John Bolton Signs installs the Coast News sign outside the new office on Cowrie Street  (beside Trail Bay Sports) under the watchful eye of Fran Burnside. ���John Burnside photo Coast News, April 27,1987  Ferry views  Now that the tempest in a teapot stirred up about some  local politicans getting the Nanaimo ferry delayed five  minutes to make a connection for a meeting on Vancouver  Island has died down somewhat, it may be appropriate to  make a few comments.  In the first place such co-operation on the part of the  ferry crews is not all that unusual. Our experience has been  that if you have good cause for making connection those  operating the ferries will do their best to accomodate you  whether you are a politician or not.  In the second place, why there should be a fuss made  about making a ferry connection which should by rights be  scheduled by the ferry corporation routinely escapes us entirely. We simply do not believe that adjusting ferry  schedules by 15 minutes to make the connection is beyond  man's ingenuity and it should have been done long ago.  Our elected officials should be insisting on a permanent  change in scheduling that would allow the Vancouver  Island connection to be made by all. Of what use will it be  to promote the Sunshine Circle route if those who take it  find that moronic scheduling by the ferry corporation  leads them to spend the best part of summer days sitting in  the ferry parking lot?  The single most objectionable aspect of the whole silly  flurry, in our opinion, was Regional Director John  Shaske's snide and unpleasant attempt to discredit the  mayor of Gibsons for the expenditure of $40 extra to get to  the meeting in question.  The question is, how long can regional directors retain  credibility in their stated intentions of co-operating with  the municipalities while indulging in such back-stabbing  pettiness.  And further, what right does Shaske think he has to  complain about misuse of the public funds when he has  been for years a cheerful participant in the quite lavish  dinners that regional directors enjoy at public expense between their planning and board meetings?  If you live in a glass house, Mr. Shaske, best to keep  your slingshot in your pocket.  Dead right  Former Conservation Officer Pat Mulligan is dead right  when he tells the regional district that if we are going to try  to attract visitors to the Sunshine Coast then something  has to be done to improve the access to the sea.  It is a continuing scandal that launching ramps have  disappeared and access trails to the beach remain unmarked, grown over or built over.  *lf Regional Director Gordon Wilson is anxious to get to  work on the issue we suggest he could not do better than  begin in his own regional district. No regional district has  retained good access to water but certainly Wilson has as  many access trails as anyone which have been taken out of  the public domain.  from the files of the COAST NEWS  5 YEARS AGO  Regional Director Jim Gurney of Area E is elected to  be regional board chairman after the resignation of  Alderman Brian Stelck of Sechelt.

The log barge was  held in position by the assist tugs Smithy I and Syringa, of Active  Marine Towing, while her 'port tipping tanks' were flooded with  water creating a thirty degree list to port which caused the mass of  logs to shift and slide into the water. With the sudden release of  weight, the vessel simultaneously surged sideways and ahead re-  i_Ss_��__,  quiring the assist tugs to push and pull her clear of the sorting  grounds. -���  The Haida Monarch, built in 1974, is 423 feet long, 88 feet wide  and has a log carrying capacity of 16,000 cubic meters (3,000,000  board feet). The ship is powered by two GM Electromotive Diesels'  with a combined rating of 7200 horsepower, giving the vessel a ser-J  vice speed of twelve knots.  ���Kent Sheridan photo,.  The play-offs  I was watching a portion of  Saturday night's hockey game  between the Winnipeg Jets and  the Edmonton Oilers and  something struck me that I  didn't hear any of the commentators mention. It might have  been mentioned, . but I didn't  hear it because 1 only saw approximately half of the game.  It was almost certainly the  first time in the history of the  Stanley Cup that the. starting  ^goalkeepers for both teams were  coloured athletes. It may even  have been the first time that two  coloured players participated in  the Stanley Cup playoffs at the  same time. *  Now Grant Fuhr/for Edmonton and Pokey Reddick fori  Winnipeg may be trail-blazers;  in the matter of coloured-  athletes participating in the;  Stanley Cup, but there is not the  dramatic removal of a colour;  bar which Jackie Robinson had;  to face when he became the first  Negro player to play in the big;  leagues of baseball.  The lack of coloured players!  in the NHL has more to do with  a   relatively   few   coloured;  athletes who have sought to;  make Canada's national game  their area of activity. There has i  been a long line of male and!  female sprinters, for example,  who have performed at world;  calibre level in the colours of  Canada - Harry Jerome of Vancouver and Ben Johnson currently   dazzling   the   running  world out of Toronto as his  home base, come to mind.  But coloured hockey players  have been few and far between.  Back in the 1950's there was a  very good winger called Willie  O'Ree who played most of his  career in the minor leagues but  did get a few games for Boston  Bruins, if memory serves me  well.  , O'Ree's failure to crack an  NHL line-up had more to do  with the-,fact that the old six-  team NHL had too many good  players vying for too few jobs,  than.any problems with his skin  colour. In today's league Willie  O'Ree would have been a  regular on more than half of the  teams in the league.  Maybe this historic occasion  would have passed without my  notice if there had been a  modicum of suspense in the  hockey game, but Edmonton  Oilers were doing a very convincing portrayal of the irrestible  force and it appeared unlikely  to this viewer that the Winnipeg  Jets will win a single game in.  this series.  It looks like the Stanley Cup  Finals this year will most certainly feature the Oilers who  have come up with a stingy  defence to back up their'  awesome offensive talents.  Their opponents will be either  Montreal, if the Canadiens  come all the way back from  their poor start against the  Quebec Nordiques or, failing  some more of Montreal's Cup  magic it will be the Philadelphia  Flyers and the Oilers in the  finals.  Backed up by Grant Fuhr in  goal and their new impressively  stingy defence and led by a well-  rested Wayne Gretzky and  Mark Messier, it will be the Ed  monton Oilers taking the cup in  a great final whoever they play.  Next   year,   watch   those  Canucks.  Coast Lines  The Tuft of Flowers  Excerpted for Bonnie  I went to turn the grass once after one  Who mowed it in the dew before the sun.  The dew was gone that made his blade so keen  Before I came to view the leveled scene.

Robert Frost  'Prohibition Days' for Sechelt?  by.Nancy MacLarty  Not too long ago Sechelt  voted 'no' to the privatization  of liquor outlets. Now Sechelt  council has turned thumbs  down on a beer garden for  Celebration Days and the  Chamber of Commerce is looking for some other way to break  even at this June event.  Council decided that to have  a beer garden in downtown  Sechelt in full view of our young  people would be "ridiculous  and controversial" in light of  the support they had just given  a drug and alcohol abuse program being planned at  Chatelech Secondary School.  One alderman is quoted as saying "it would present quite a  spectacle, for highschool  students if they see their friends  19 and up drinking beer and  they can't go in."  Well, these are very noble  and well-meaning words. If that  is the view of the majority of  our municipal leaders then  perhaps they should go whole  hog. After all, if our teens are  so easily- led that just seeing  something being done makes  them want to do it, then there  are a lot of things that should be  changed on the Coast.  For instance, I believe that all  drivers' licenses be lifted in the  area. After all, if the under 16's  see their older peers driving,  what's to stop them from immediately heading for the  family car and taking off down  101 with a crazed look in their  eye, licence or not? Besides, if  everyone in the area were forced  to walk, it would go far in promoting a fitter population, carbon monoxide pollution would  drop dramatically, and money  spent on paving roads could go  to better use.  Further, all restaurants  should have their liquor licenses  taken away immediately. Imagine the way our poor kids feel  when we take them out for dinner and have wine with our  meal when they have to settle  for pop. Any pub or lounge  should have all windows boarded up and outside patios closed  so that passing teens cannot see  or be affected by those who  choose to legally imbibe. All  B.C. liquor outlets in the area  should be closed. Any television  program that shows drinking  must be banned as well as all  advertisements for alcoholic  beverages whether on TV,  billboards, or in magazines.  (Sorry about that sports fans!)  As well, anyone who chooses  to drink in their own home must  have one room, preferably in  the basement, designated as 'the  wet room.' Any person who  partakes of an alcoholic  beverage in their home must do  so only in that room and at  times when children are either  asleep or in school. All drapes  must be closely drawn. When  not in use, 'the wet room' must  be locked and the key carefully  hidden. Also, any alcoholic  beverage served in the room  must be served in a tea cup so  that if a child successfully tries  to peek, they will not be inflamed or led astray by the sight of  drink.  A law must be passed giving  council the power to enter any  home at any time without prior  permission or consent to check  that the rules regarding 'the wet  room' are strictly enforced. A  '1-800' number, should be  established so that under age  children may 'snitch' on their  **   ���*  parents without fear of reprisal*  Council should also be erris;  powered to order blood or uriri^  tests on anyone at any time. ;^  Any church that uses rea^  wine in their communion serj  vices will be prosecuted and'  closed. Any private functio&i!  such as wedding receptions wii��  not be allowed to serve ait5��  alcoholic beverage if thos^  under the age of 19 are present lq  A member of Sechelt council q��  his assign must be in attendance^  at any of these private fuiKJ-jr  tions, whether they know ttie^  celebrants or not, to see thajfc  these rules are strictly enforce^  If the function at which the iii4  fraction takes place is a baptist  or christening, council shall ini��  mediately expropriate the child.%  Now there are some who ma$  think that I am kidding aboti��  all this. To them I say 'anything  that's worth doing is worth do'^  ing well.' And to the SechelC;  Chamber of Commerce may ;��*  suggest the theme 'Prohibitioh^  Days'? Who knows? This may;^  be the best thing to hit Sechelt*  since regular ferry service. After;*  all, look what bootlegging di4>  for Chicago! 7;> Coast News, April 27,1987  3.  >abour Congress itiarlks w��rl&er fatalities  j   Editor:  ; The Canadian Labour Con-  | gress has chosen April 28 of  j each year as a day of mourning  i nfor Canadian workers who were  ! victims of work place accidents  ! and disease.  !^: On thousands of job sites,  J^eamps, ships, offices, mines,  j^mills, and everywhere in  {^Canada where working people  �� make things happen, safety is a  |7high profile issue and trade  j^lmions are always pressuring  governments for tougher occupational health and safety  i standards.  t. There is a much more safety  ! conscious attitude among young  ! workers than was the case in the  ! past and they are quick to bring  'unsafe conditions to the  I employer's attention. This is  ; due mainly to the- presence of  'their union. We seldom hear of  anyone being fired for complaining of unsafe conditions  today.  However, to think that safety  and occupational health conditions are going to only get better  is false.  High unemployment, actions  by employers and governments  to hamper trade unions, a move  toward "Right to Work" laws,  improper testing of toxic  , materials, etc., will all increase  workplace hazards.  The proposed changes to the  B.C. Labour Code will without  a doubt, increase job hazards by  weakening unions and is, in  fact, trying to destroy them.  The Social Credit Government  is playing fast and loose with  workers lives.  In many cases, unions have  closed down unsafe work sites,  they have lobbied governments,  the Workers Compensation  Board and the medical profession in the interest of their  members' health and safety.  April 28 is a day to remember  the working people who have  paid with their lives in the  building of our country.  It is also a time to reflect on  what we've done and what must  still be done to make our work  sites safer. To do this it is absolutely essential to have a  strong, free trade union movement in Canada.  Doug MacKay  On workers' rights  Drugs costs soar  Editor:  This Thursday, April 30,  Fred Wilson, the Labour  Secretary for the Communist  Party in B.C., will speak on the  implications of Bill 19 and 20  for working people.  It was during the 30's and  40's that the struggles took  place which resulted in workers  getting such benefits as  unemployment insurance and  the right to organize and  bargain collectively.  It is not well known but it is a  fact that communists played a  major role in these battles for  labour rights. Bill 19 is a direct  threat to these hard won rights.  Decades of relentless anti-  communism in the mass media  has made it difficult for people  to listen with an open mind to  what communists have to say.  Try to break through this  mental barrier and come and  hear Fred Wilson at 7:30 in the  Marine Room below the Gibsons Library on Thursday,  April 30.  Hans Penner  Editor:  y The seniors of this province  rjave recently been placed in a  frightening situation by the  government of B.C.  I'm speaking, of course, of  the measures imposed by the recent provincial budget. As of  April 1, seniors began paying  part of the cost of their  prescription drugs. Soon, they  will also begin paying a $5 user  fee for certain therapies such as  physiotherapy and podiatry.  For most seniors, these services  are necessary if they are to remain as active as they'd like.  It has been estimated that a  single or widowed senior, living  in, his or her own home and  needing pharmacare and  therapy, may be faced with additional costs of up to $350 per  year.  7 These budget measures represent a major policy shift in our  health care system. For 20  years, governments of all parties  have supported universal  ^overage of health services for  ;��J>lder people. It's a system that  jjs highly respected and admired.  It cannot be thrown away  without first seeking some consultation with the people most  directly affected, the seniors of  B.C.  That is why I'd like to encourage your readers, young  and old alike, to make their  views known on this issue.  Write to Premier Vander  Zalm, Health Minister Peter  Dueck, or your own MLA or  me, and let your voice be heard.  It can make a difference.  Anita Hagen, MLA  New Democrat Spokesperson  on Senior's Issues  Egg hunt thanks  Editor:  Thank you to all the folks  who helped with the Easter egg  hunt sponsored by the Gibsons  Landing Theatre Project Society:  Dorothy White, coordinator, and her daughter-in-  law who hid the eggs; Gale  Woodhouse for the beautiful  signs; Lilian Kunstler and  Dorothy White who donated  the eggs; Zale Dalin who kept  order among the children; and  the Coast News for publicity.

Hip, hip hurrah for the  students of Gibsons Elementary  for their super performance of  Joseph's Coat of Many Colours.  Hip, hip hurrah for the  parents, friends and others who  came out to support the well-  performed arid sensitively pro  duced musical.  Hip, hip hurrah for the staff  of the school who gave beyond  the call of duty for the children  and the community.  And a socking great tiger' for  the Eileen Glassford Foundation that will give future school  productions a setting worthy of  the local talents.       _.'������>  Eric R. Cardinall  The first ferry leaves  Langdale at 6:20 am. There is  no way you can catch the ferry  to Nanaimo. The Nanaimo  ferry is leaving when the  Langdale is docking.

Renovations boost local economy  ���������*  by Fran Burnside  %s Over a quarter of a million  /vtjollars in renovations to Sun-  ..irycrest Mall are currently  ^/underway, and seem perfectly  ���^jmed to coincide with the  .^celebration of the mall's tenth  ;���'/ anniversary.  ���' The good news in economic  :^and employment terms is that  |jSdrhost all of the work is being  ���3 done by local tradesmen.  .>-���' In   an   interview   with   the  "f Coast News and speaking on  behalf of owner Nelson  Rudelier of Vancouver, the  mall's off-site manager, Marvin  Mogul, noted that there has  been ongoing upgrading of the  mall ever sine*: Rudelier purchased it in 1981, with much of  the carpeting replaced with tile  in the interior, and landscaping  done outside. The current  renovations have been in the  planning stages for about a  year, and will gjve a whole new  look and atmosphere to the mall  as it enters its' second decade.  r  &  infli   Children's Sleepwear  ^& Sweatsuits  lOott  FULL SELECTION  OF CHILDREN'S CLOTHING  TODD'S  CHILDREN'S WEAR  ^Sunnycrest MallL ftflfe-9994;  ..r  Presently underway is the installation of five large skylights,  three on the lower level and two  on the upper. The increased  light will allow for the addition  of a large number of plants and  there will be three new seating  areas.  "We'll be buying over  $45,000 worth of first-class mall  furniture", said Mogul.  A real bonus for parents is  news of plans for a play area for  children in the centre of the  lower level where the kiosk  (formerly The Feathered Nest)  used to be.  The entire bulkhead or  overhead fronts of all the stores  will be redone, and new signs  will go up. The whole inside  mall will be repainted and  wallpapered.  The main entranceway to the  mall has already been enclosed,  and soon will sport display cases  to feature the wares of the merchants inside.  Changes to the outside front  of the mall will reflect the con-  sultant's suggestion of a  "Mariner" theme. Paint  around the windows will be a  dark turqoise blue, posts may  be made to resemble planks,  and the sidewalk will be redone  in a pebble coat.  Across the whole front, from  one end to the other, will be a  white awning with the individual store names painted on  it. And over the main entrance,  and every entrance, will be a  huge, ten foot high oval awning  showing the way in.  The new mall sign facing the  highway will also give the time  and temperature.  "These changes will really  spruce up the place", said  Mogul. "I think it's really going  to be gorgeous!"  Completion is scheduled for  late summer or early fall.  The only work which cannot  be done locally is the huge front  awning and its signage.  "We always, whenever possible, like to deal locally," stated  Mogul. "We find Coast people  really good to work with, and  we have a terrific contractor in  Roy Taylor. We just leave it to  him."  Fate seems to have come full  circle. Thirty years ago the very  first store which is now part of  Sunnycrest Mall was built by  Keith Wright and John Matthews. Then it was the Super-  Valu store; now the SAAN's  store.  Roy Taylor was the contractor then, too.  The Gibsons 'Man in Motion Committee raised $1274.53 for Rick  Hansen in their recent mall campaign. Winner of the giant  chocolate Easter bunny held by Lisa Allen was Leira Cleland of  Gibsons. Mayor Diane Strom drew the winning ticket as Don-  namarie Harrington Cline looked on. ���Fran Bumside photo  Drop off your  COAST NEWS  CLASSIFIEDS  B & D SPORTS  in Sunnycrest Mall  until noon Saturday  "A Frlandly Paopla Place"  Yes, there is a rainy season in Aussie, like no  other rainy season you've ever seen. Great  bucketfulls of the stuff that turn a billabong into Niagara bloody Falls.   ,  Good thing a DrizaBone does keep you  100% dry. No bulldust, mate, here's why.  THE OILSKIN  This stuff has been around for 200 years. It  was first thought up by the poor desperate  buggers of the Royal Pommy Navy. These  scurvy lads soaked canvas in beef tallow and  oil and slung it on as waterproofs.  No less desperate, Aussie convicts stole the  idea, eventually refining the gear until we  have the DrizaBone of today - Egyptian cotton  instead of canvas, wax instead of beef tallow.  In Egypt, the cotton plants grow with long  Why a DrizaBone  is  'dry as a bone'  fibres, Christ knows why. But a longer fibre  means a stronger cotton ��� incidently, you  can prove this by wearing a DrizaBone and  chucking yourself into a barbwire fence. Ordinary cotton would tear. Egyptian cotton  resists the barbs.  Right, so you've got this cotton, strong as  the grog in Jimmy's pub, which is impregnated with a special wax an' oil mix ��� the  cotton, not Jimmy's pub.  Anyhow, that's oilskin. Keeps the buckets  out and breathes a bit for comfort.  THE DESIGN  The steaming pile of oilskin doesn't help  much though, until you've got her all sewn into something with a bit of design.  That's the other reason a DrizaBone works,  there's lots of it to keep the wet off. The skirts  are long, go all the way down your midcalf  and have leg straps sewn onto the inside of the  skirts. Snap 'em around your leg to keep  Mother Nature from blowing her muck all  over your knees.

Coast News, April 27,1987  ^^MBM9Mj^KM^KX  The adventures of a plastic e  by George Cooper, 886-8520  Just over a month ago five  year old Simon MacKenzie  picked up an egg-shaped object  on the beach at the Gibsons  Marina.  His mother Alia MacKenzie,  who lives near the marina,  recognized the plastic egg as one  of those dispensed from candy  machines. A twist and the egg  opens to expose the candy inside.  A*C1<NIT WIT  CoV>** is  Sunnycrest Mall  886-2717  Instead of candy Alia and her  son found a note, the paper stiff  as parchment from the salt  water, with one readable name  and an address in Prince  George, and "write me" below.  By coincidence Alia had  recently lived in Prince George  and this prompted her to write  to the address given on the  paper in the plastic egg.  Her letter startled a 16 year  old, Brad Slyman, who had  quite forgotten the plastic egg  and thought someone with a  very strange sense of humour  was playing a joke.  With the help of his mother  and his chum Gary, whose  name had also been on the  paper in the plastic egg, Brad at  last recollected the occasion  when the message was written  and dispatched in the lake.  For that is where the boys,  then 12 years old, had flung the  egg into Kamloops Lake near  Savona while picnicing on their  way home to Prince George.  For four years the plastic egg  bobbed and bumped its way  down the Thompson, the Fraser  and Hell's Gate, until disgorged  into the Georgia Strait.  Four years! And safe haven  at last in Gibsons Harbour, just  a few months late for centennial  year celebrations.  Alia MacKenzie said that the  egg had travelled about 500  kilometres on this incredible  journey.  Some will remember the National Film Board's "Paddle to  the Sea" that has always  fascinated youngsters. There a  similar journey of a carved  child's toy was traced from a  river to the ocean. Remember  that anyone? If you do, tell me  how it ends please. Just forgot  for the moment.  Simon  will  remember  this  Easter egg, I'm sure.

NYCREST MALL  886-3866  Gibsons cool to sign change  A request by Vene Parnell of  the Sunshine Coast Tours and  Charters to relocate, and add  to, the directional sign at the  corner of School Road and  Highway 101 received a chilly  reception at Gibsons Council  meeting last week.  In a letter to the mayor and  council, Parnell pointed out  that the sign, which had been  paid for by three businesses,  had been located at the back of  the property in May 1986 before  any development had taken  place. Now that improvements  at the site are completed the  businesses, Gibsons Marina, the  Ritz Motel, and Sunshine Coast  Tours, want the sign moved to  the front of the property and an  eight foot by one foot red arrow  put along the bottom to draw  attention to the bay area.  Alderman Bob Maxwell called the idea a "sacrilege" and  pointed out that "rather than  being part of a background the  sign would be the dominant  feature on that corner."  Village planner Rob Buchan  told council that when they  agreed to install the sign last  spring they were "bending a bylaw" and that the present location of the sign is adequate.  Some discussion ensued  regarding the style of sign which  would both serve the purpose of  directing people to the museum,  library, post office, etc., and be  esthetically acceptable. The  matter was referred to planning  for their recommendations.

Sage, you are a real asset to  Pender Habour, and we want  you to know that we appreciate  all you do for our community  and our youngsters!  CONGRATULATIONS!  I missed one notable Harbour  musician from the list last week,  Klisala Harrison, whose violin  solos and ensemble playing won  her several prizes in the Sunshine* Coast Music Festival.  Congratulations, Klisala!  More congratulations to the  13 students who successfully  completed the Babysitter  Preparation Course at Madeira  Park Elementary. These young  people will make excellent  babysitters for Harbour  families. Their names are  available through the school  newsletter.

The  Food  Service Worker  Program was a part time course  offered   to   those   already  employed or seeking employment in local intermediate and  long   term   care   facilities.  Modelled after a program at  Vancouver Community College  and offered for the first time at  the Sechelt Campus, the course  covered nutrition, special diets  and the aging process.  Students enrolled for one or  more sections (26 of them), and  14 students completed all three.  The Adult Basic Education  Program celebrated its 10th  year at the Sechelt campus with  a special cake. This program offers high school upgrading in a  number of subjects to those  wishing to pick up their high  school graduation or to complete specific course requirements for more advanced  study.  The program has enrolled  almost 1000 students since it  began, and is the longest running ongoing class at the college  in Sechelt. Some 25 students  completed courses and eight  were eligible for Ministry of  Education certificates this year.  The ceremony on April 22  was addressed by Capilano College President Dr. Douglas K.  Jardine. Also present were  Janet Morris, Administrator of  Satellite Campuses, and instructors Margo Rawsthorne and  Terry Alder.  The April 23 ceremony was  addressed by Associate Dean of  Career/Vocational Programs  Beverly Harnett, Basic Computer Program Co-ordinator  Nancy Bury, Adult Basic  Education Co-ordinator Arne  Thomlinson, and instructor  Julie Southerst.  After the ceremonies  graduates and their family and  friends joined staff, faculty and  administrators for a brief reception.  by Ann Cook, 883-9253  Just a year ago Jed andTAme  were impatiently waiting- for  baby brother Shea to arrive.

Jul ach year thousands of children become victims _______k_  lach year thousands of children become victims  of accidents in and around the home. You can  reduce your child's risk of injury by ensuring a safe  environment.  The federal government passed stringent new  safety standards for cribs last fall. Make sure you  select a crib that meets all safety standards, and keep  it in good condition.  Remember that children's sleepwear and clothing  can burn easily and that your child should not play  near fireplaces, stoves or heaters. Polo-style pyjamas  are safer than loose fitting nightgowns.  Provide close supervision if your child uses a  walker, especially near stoves and electric cords, and  ensure that stairways are closed off.  For more information on how you can protect your  child, please contact the nearest office of Consumer  and Corporate Affairs Canada.  1+  Consumer & Corporate  Affairs Canada  Harvie Andre, Minister  Consommation et  Corporations Canada  Canada  .1 12.

A letter from Hector Topham, Inspector of Municipalities, was  brought to council at last week's  meeting.  Topham presented several  points raised by affected owners  which the ministry consider  relevant to the issue. He pointed  out that "when the properties  were  purchased  the solicitors  cleared all outstanding charges  and taxes. Water connection  fees were not outstanding, yet  the services were in place."  Before requesting council to  come up with a fair conclusion  to the matter, he expressed difficulty in understanding how  the contractor could have made  a major connection to the  town's water, supply without the  knowledge of town officials.  Council members made no  comment on the letter, referring  it to their solicitor before any  further discussion takes place.  Food Bank needs help  The Sechelt Food Bank has a  new co-ordinator, Petra Det-  willer. After many years of service, Maria Lwowski steps  down from the position for a  well deserved rest.  To ensure the continuation of  the Food Bank program to the  community, we are asking for  volunteer help. The organization needs people to help in sorting, bagging and distribution  of food. Also required is someone   with   a   van,   station  wagon or truck to transport  food to the Food Bank.  Funding is provided through  donations of food or money  received from the booth set up  in Trail Bay Mall. Assistance in  manning the booth would be  greatly appreciated.  If you can help, please call  the Volunteer Action Centre at  885-5881, or drop in to the office of Community Services at  the Dock on Cowrie Street in  Sechelt.

"If the crew had been thrown  overboard when their craft hit  the deadhead, they would have  perished in the heavy weather  and the cold."  Roy added, "Emergency  flares set off an immediate  response by rescue craft. A false  alarm, no matter how amusing  at the time to the perpetrators  can easily lay the death of a  Crew member on their consciences."  After the search for an overdue Horseshoe Bay rental boat,  then the false alarm, followed  by the towing of a rescue boat  that had broken down, the crew  was requested to assist in getting  fire fighting equipment to Gambier at about 9 am on Sunday.

Congratulations, everyone! ���Penny Fuller photo  Day is Bay Mews & V i ews  Watching the whales  i  i i  by Jean Robinson, 88S-2954  My  aunt,   Jean   Lissiman,  former resident of the Sunshine  Coast, and I went by bus from  the Oak Bay Marina, Victoria,  to Ucluelet. Our driver pointed  out some of Vancouver Island's  features. The rainiest lake is  Henderson, the largest lake is  Kennedy, while the deepest is  "is 'Cameron.  L���_���   We paused for awhile to ad-  ^rnire the murals at Chemainus  O^and 10 minutes for a walk in  -��wonderous Cathedral Grove to  ^���������gaze on enormous trees with  i      tiny trilium growing beneath.  ! After a lunch break at Port  Alberni,   we   drove   on   to  Ucluelet,   where   we   were  welcomed aboard the Canadian  Princess and  shown  to  our  cabin.  We braved the pouring rain  and driving wind to take advan-  J      tage of pur free afternoon to see  the town.  Next morning we boarded the  50 foot MVNootka to go slow-  ,*$*\y down Ucluelet Harbour past  IJlS^cavorting sea lions, out to a very  trough sea. Waves 12 feet high  washed over the wheelhouse  . -which we really did not need as  �� it was already raining very hard.  | Definitely not for the faint of  | heart or non sailors.  t Our captain was competent  | * and knowledgeable. The deck-  V^Jiand, Elvan, kept the cofffee,  tea and hot chocolate coming to  f warm cold hands. We saw two  | 'blows' that morning.  j That afternoon our driver  took us to Long Beach, Wick-  annish Inn and a cove where  there were a pair of eagles and  their nest. We also spotted an  otter foraging along the beach.  With binoculars we saw the sea  lions on a small island offshore. It was more comfortable  to watch the stormy surf from  the shore. Truly awesome.  - Next day the sun came out  and the wind had abated a little.  We counted nine whale sightings, two close enough to see the  barnacled and patchy grey  backs. One was in the harbour  entrance in fact. These grey  whales were feeding and tending  to business. They are not nearly  as curious or playful as the  humpbacks.  The five boats that went out  that morning had only half their  assigned passengers. The day  fore was too much.   Two pm found us back on  the bus for the return trip,  ahead of two other buses  because our driver assured that  the Nanaimo bars at Coombs  Market were the best ever. He  wanted in first.  There were two goats on the  Kiwanis  Auxiliary  by Helen Weinhandi  The April meeting of the  Kiwanis Auxiliary was held in  the care home lounge amidst  bunnies and streamers, sure  signs of the upcoming resident's  dance (to which we were all invited).  Committee reports were  given and Joyce Ripper gave us  a preview of her Easter favours  and other special days; a display  of one of the many talents in  our auxiliary.  We welcomed our newest  member Maria Fredricks who  has offered to help with the  residents' personal shopping.  Thanks Maria.  Saturday, July 18 is the date  set for our annual Berry Tea,  held on the lawn at the care  home. It is a sure fun afternoon, greeting old friends or  making new, with door prizes  too!  Marlene Blakeman will  organize our dinner meeting for  June and it is hoped we have a  good turnout.

Some of  these huge operations such as  the Bloedel, Stewart and Welch  camp at Franklin River, employed upwards of 400 men. As  these companies began to push  their way back into the enormous island valleys, they began  to lay track and railroad log-  hauling came to the B.C.  woods. This was the heyday of  the 'roaring Shay', a specially  built locomotive, designed for  working steep grades. When the  'lode' shows really got going, it  was not unusual to see log trains  100 cars long, huffing their way  to the dumping ground.  It took a small army of boom  men to sort and stow the prodigious volume of logs that  poured out of the valleys. Nim-  bleness was a prerequisite for  this job. All the work was done  manually with peaveys,  pikepoles and hand augers. As  each many-sectioned raft was  made up, it was towed by steam  tug to the Vancouver mills.  These rapid advances in logging technology, introduced a  new and dangerous element to  the business, the concept of  'highballing'. Up to this point,  the business of pulling logs  from the brush had been leisurely, even slow. Now speed  entered the picture and the  woods bosses began to put the  pressure on. Quota crazed  hooktenders competed with  each other and drove their crews  ruthlessly. High production  became the name of the game.  Safety regulations were virtually  non-existent. The incidence of  fatalities and serious injuries, .  doubled and quadrupled. There  were no unions to complain to.  It was 'on the ball or on the  boat!'. The rape of the Coast  cranked into high gear.  Up near Ahousat on Vancouver Island's west coast, a 7  rangy youth called Gordon Gib-  son was carving himself a king- J^;  dom. Gibson's logging legend isjftgf  unique in the annals of the >>  business. Among other things,  he pioneered log barging and  founded the town of Tahsis.  Tough but humane, Gibson  prided himself on running good  camps and instituted the almost  unheard of policy of single  room bunkhouses for the first  time in the woods. Gibson's  remarkable career is well  chronicled in the autobiographical saga Bull of the  Woods. The following poem  (which has Gibson's stamp of  approval) attempts to sum up  his life more succinctly.  The Country of the Bull  Beyond the black top's end  the road runs wild  through raw and ravaged land  from duncecap peaks  rambunctious rivers crash  feneath log bridges  the rough way twists and climbs  tips, dips and sheers  The gravel slides like ice  beneath the wheels  blind corners veer  we fear for logging trucks  The last hills wave us past  we crest the summit of a  final ridge  Fashion  through parting trees, the  ancient inlet blinks  and we are in the  Country of the Bull.  This limberlost  remote   aloof  exhilarating  land  was once his bailiwick  Across these slopes  along these waterways when  youth ran strong  he beat his measured path  the gawky boy became the  looming man  he squared off with the trees  spat on his hands and taught  himself to log.  Bull of the Woods  they called him for his stemblast  of a voice  and his ex-stubborn ways  unquenchable  his thirst for timber  (and other stuff)  he slaked it to the full  In his spare time, he fished and  flew a plane  ran sawmills, captained  ships and  carved his mark  then by a wild river, he sat down  and breached a crock of scotch  and dreamed a town.  The Bull has long forged on  to other schemes in places  far removed  the town he dreamed remains  around the sawmill at the  valley ys mouth  Those first rude shacks  have burgeoned into modern  houses now  a bullish legacy  this thriving outport at  the inlet's head  a monument to that unflinching  man  who thundered it from nothing  long ago.

At the Task Force  meeting last week, Bryan Rubin  announced that the provincial  government had approved the  Travel Sunshine Coast budget  fo( matching Partners in  Tojurism money.  The total budget is $182,000,  half of which will come from  the; provincial government if the  balance can be raised from the  private sector. "They want to  support, private sector  initiative," Rubin told the  meeting. "The government is  nofc going to give money to an  area where people will not invest in themselves."  Travel Sunshine Coast hopes  to rjaise a majority of the money  through "tag-along" ads placed  in newspapers and magazines in  B.(J., Washington, Oregon, and  Alberta. Trie marketing committee will purchase ad space  for; the Sunshine Coast and  local businesses will be offered  adjoining space.  Marketing off the Sunshine  Coast is only one part of the  task force's" strategy. The committee is also concerned with the  quality of service that visitors  receive once they arrive here. In  order to" help businesses put  their best face forward, two  separate courses will be offered  before tourist season begins.  A; course that is basically set  along the lines of the Superhost  program, with local emphasis,  will be;offered for employers  and employees alike.  Rubin pointed out that it  costs six times more money to  get a tourist here the first time  than it does to have them  return, making it financially  beneficial for businesses to send  their employees to the course.  A lecond training session will  be offered, to prepare people to  teach the course. This will  enable local people to put on the  program as often as it is needed.  Bruno Gerussi's name and  photo have been purchased for  use in promoting the Sunshine  Coast for the next year. An ad  using this approach, which was  published in Skyword Magazine  two weeks ago, has already  resulted in several inquiries for  more information on this area.  Billboards throughout the  province and ads on the sides of  buses in the Lower Mainland  along  will also serve to tantalize  travellers to the peninsula.  In order to facilitate the anticipated inquiries resulting  from the promotion campaign,  Travel Sunshine Coast has  opened a temporary office in  Gibsons which will be staffed by  Challenge '87 students for the  summer.  It is hoped that by September  funding will be in place to hire a  year-round staff person to coordinate and implement the  long-range marketing plans that  the Tourism Task Force has for  the Sunshine Coast.  by Montague Royal  Vancouver Island's once-  thriving coal mining industry is  only grist for historians now.  But the underpinnings of the  land from Bevan to Ladysmith,  are honey-combed with abandoned workings and grizzled  men in Cumberland pubs still  talk of the boom years when  coal was King. Bitterness  threads always through their  yarns however, for they were  dirty, dangerous times, and life  was cheap.  In the late 1970's, writer Myrtle Bergren, who had captured  the loggers in her fine book  Tough Timber, undertook to  perform the same task for the  coal miners. She had recorded  more than 40 oldtimers from  the pits when, in 1979, her life  was cut tragically short by a  fatal car accident. Fotunately,  Mrs. Bergren's project was not  abandoned. Lantzville writer,  Lynne Bowen, stepped into the  breach and completed the book.  Entitled Boss Whistle  (Oolichan), it is a thoroughly  satisfying work that opens up  the lost shafts and lets the voices  of the men who toiled there  speak freely of the dripping,  claustrophobic tunnels where  they once scratched out their  livelihood.  Lynne Bowen does not go  back to the very earliest attempt  to mine coal in B.C. (An abortive HBC operation at Fort *  Rupert in the 1850's). She concentrates mainly on the Comox  Valley/Nanaimo area where  most of the large-scale commercial mining took place. Boss  Whistle is essentially oral  history with a connecting narrative line and the many ex-  miners who were interviewed  are remarkably articulate, as  they recall the turbulent years of  their youth.  The first chapters of the book  outline graphically , the wretched conditions that existed in  most of the early mines,  established and perpetuated by  the grasping Dunsmuir family  and the equally-dictatorial mining bosses who succeeded them.  Their ajm, frankly stated, was  to keep overhead down and  production up. This was achieved by cheap housing low wages  and an almost total disregard  for safety regulations. The  miners worked in constant  jeopardy and fatal accidents  were a constant fact of life. The  pit mules and horses who pulled  the ore-carts were considered  less expendable than men.  Men who are constantly  maltreated and exploited, tend  to stand up for their rights  sooner or later, and the miners  of Vancouver Island were no  exception. Unions were organized, despite the efforts of the  mine bosses to stop them, and,  in 1912, a strike of major proportions hit the coal fields. It  was to last for two years.  The coal companies retaliated  by bringing in crews of scabs to  work the mines, guarded by  'special policemen.' This triggered a situation that was very  much like all-out war. After  several bloody confrontations  between scabs and strikers, the  provincial government sent in  the militia. There were many arrests and dozens of the strikers  received jail terms. Public sympathy was very much on the side  of the miners but nothing was  really gained and, with the outbreak of World War One, the  strike fizzled out.  The strikers had managed to  Children of  alcoholics  Many adults that have grown  up in a family with an alcoholic  parent, close friend or relative,  share a number of characters  istics that can interfere with  their ability to live a healthy and  enjoyable life.

Many of the Vancouver Island  coal mines kept operating until  the late 1940's. Then the bottom  dropped out of the market in  favour of oil and, one by one,  the workings were abandoned.  Boss Whistle is a thoroughly  engrossing book, a tribute to a  group of men and women who  suffered through some very  tough times and lived to tell  their stories.  ^Mappty ujirlhdau  djear  KARAT GOLD  LOW PRICES  MURDOCH'S JEWELRY  at  Mar Lee Fashions (Cedar Plaza, Gibsons)  every Saturday, 10 am - 5 pm  ��� full line of gold nugget jewelry -available  ��� custom order rings  One of(life's  little perks!'

I had no problem convincing my partner to join me, because  Prontos' diverse menu appeals to whatever cravings you might  want to conjure up.  The same friendly atmosphere ^eeted us that we've come to  anticipate, rather like dining at a good friendjs home.  Knowing what I wanted simplified things when the menu was  brought. I ordered shrimp cocktail to start off, followed by  souvlaki, rice pilaf and Greek salad. I think I surprised the  waitress when I asked for a side dish of calamari sauce. While I  . wasn't in the mood for squid, the sauce is wonderful as a dip for  the souvlaki.  My partner had more difficulty in selecting his meal. Torn between the homemade fettucini alfredo, barbecue ribs and chicken,  steak or rainbow trout, he finally settled on Alaska snow crab  preceded by escargot. His meal came with soup or salad and he  picked the homemade minestrone soup - wise decision.  Luckily, when served with a meal, the spicy delight comes in a  small bowl, which I insisted he share. It was merely enough to  tempt the tastebuds and I intend to stop in for lunch sometime  and order a meal of it. For us, it was a delightful introduction to  the tasty meal ahead.  My shrimp cocktail came on a crisp bed of. lettuce, surrounded  by fresh slices of cucumber and tomato. The escargot sat in a  garlicky sea of butter atop fresh mushroom caps.  As usual, Prontos served us with generous portions which  made us wonder if we could possibly eat everything offered. Of  course we both became so involved with the fabulous tastes that  we made gluttons of ourselves and polished off the works.  The souvlaki had large tender chunks of beef served on a bed  of rice pilaf which was cooked to perfection with slices of sweet  green pepper and onions. I never did decide whether it was more  delicious dipped in the calamari sauce or undipped.  My partner attacked the mountain of snow crab legs with  gusto, dipping the sweet meat in melted butter until not a morsel  was left.  My one regret is that, as usual, I was so stuffed from the meal  that there was no room left for dessert.  In the next few weeks, Sechelt residents will be happy to know  that Prontos II will be opening and the cooking will be done by a  second Prontos brother, Ambrose. A guarantee that the food will  again be excellent.  NIGHT ON THE TOWN  Bonniebrook Lodge- Enjoy relaxed  and intimate dining in this historic seaside  lodge.

"It's regrettable that it's come to this," he  said. "I had really hoped that  the community would make use  of it."  Chairman Jim Gurney, commented that Mr. Derby had succeeded in stopping the illegal use  of the dump. He also said that  closing the Gibsons dump was  one of the first things he had to  do when he was elected. "There  was a great hue and cry at the  time that it was an essential  facility for the community. One  thing this has done is disprove  that. It seems people would  rather go to Sechelt than  patronize the Gibsons dump."  ***** Must be Seen or Driven *****  CONTACT JAMES OR HARVIE  WE WILL NOT BE UNDERSOLD  Wharf Rd., Sechelt 885-3281  mwiffltt  jgt       Gibsons  \8r Swimming  Pool  THURSDAY  May 1 to July 3  Parents Tot  10:30 am-11:30 am  Back Care  2:00 pm-2:30 pm  MONDAY .

T-ball start  by Sue Girard  Look for my column weekly  now that the T-Ball season has  begun.  We had 112 registrations this  year of girls and boys. That  makes eight teams with 14  players on each team. Thanks to  our volunteer coaches.  Games begin May 4 and most  of the teams have already begun  practising. I will be reporting  scores and highlights of our  games, so look for those each  week.  At this time we believe that all  eight teams have been sponsored by local merchants.

Foresters combatting riot rot  * Foresters at the Sechelt Forest  ^District Office are combatting  root rot in second growth  _)ouglas Fir and hemlock  .stands. The enemy in this case is  la primary decay fungus called  ;Phellinus weirii that causes  laminated rot in the roots and  lower stems of susceptible forest  Jrees.  - According to Canadian  ^Forestry Service research, this  disease is prevalent throughout  the range of Douglas-fir and its  impact has been recognized  since the 1920's. It can survive  for up to a century in stumps  _nd roots, then as new roots  come into contact with them the  fungus spreads along the new  roots and eventually from tree  Jo tree through root contacts.  The first sign of infection is  usually a reduction in leader  growth followed by discolouration and loss of needles. As the  roots decay they become  weakened making the trees  susceptible to windthrow. Root  rot caused windthrow can easily  be distinguished by the  characteristic small root ball  and almost spongelike wood.  The district root rot control  strategy is being implemented  with broad based surveys to  determine stands with over 10  per cent of their area infected.  These heavily infected stands  are then scheduled for early  harvest to prevent root rot  spread and to salvage infected  surrounding suspect stumps are  marked and mapped. Following  harvest the areas surrbiinding  these infection centers are  planted with Western red cedar  or in some instances white pine  both of which have shown a  high resistance to root rot.  Other Forest Districts have  used the technique of stump  pulling and root-raking to bring  infected material to the surface  where it is either burned or invaded by secondary decay fungi  that replace the root rot. This  method is limited to stable soils  and expensive, but does permit  reforestation with Douglas Fir.

Uranus, in my mind, is  'always associated with the  ! French revolution. Now, as an  ,'astrologer, I'm being forced to  ; interpret the image of the  'British headmistress in the mid-  *dle of the French revolution.  ;The possible scenarios boggle  ?the mind.  ����� Right now, Saturn and  ���Uranus are moving into posi-  'tion to form a united front at  ."the end of Sagittarius and  beginning of Capricorn. Until  lAugust. 1987, they stay fairly  [separate, so that their affects  jare felt one after the other.  ; After that, they move toward  ��each other until, in February  *1988, they link arms and do a  'tango for the rest of that year  bver the last degrees of Sagittarius and very first degrees of  'Capricorn.  ; Anyone who has a significant  Jx>int in their natal chart (like  their sun) is going to be strongly  affected by this bizarre dance.  Anyone whose ascendant is in  the last half of Sagittarius will  probably be dealing with a lot  of frustrations. This includes  anyone born in the following  signs at these times: Aries, 10 to  11 pm; Taurus, 8 to 9 pm;  Gemini, 6 to 7 pm; Cancer, 4 to  5 pm; Leo, 2 to 3 pm; Virgo,  noon to 1 pm; Libra, 10 to 11  am; Scorpio, 8 to 9 am; Sagittarius, 6 to 7 am; Capricorn, 4  to 5 am; Aquarius 2 to 3 am;  Pisces, midnight to 1 am.  First Saturn is coming along,  rapping your knuckles and  cracking your head, insisting  that you face up to your responsibilities. She is followed by  Uranus, whispering from the  distance "You don't have to put  up with this. Rebel! Break  free!"  Of course as soon as you try  to assert your independence,  Saturn passes by again and gives  you another whack.  It's perfectly understandable  if you start to feel sorry for  yourself. But that can be self-  defeating.  Your challenge through this  ing  by Marguerite  * The daffodils, tulips and nar-  cissus bulbs will soon be finished blooming. As soon as the  flowers fade, pinch off seed  heads to prevent the plant putting all its energy into making  seed. Lift bulbs carefully with a  Fork, breaking as little root as  possible.  I Dig a trench in a corner of the  garden and set bulbs in it sideways with leaves intact, so that  they can continue to derive  putrients from sunlight and soil.  * They are best left there until  fate July when it will be time for  them to be lifted, cleaned,  stored or replanted.  * It's a fine time to sow a new  lawn, or renovate an old one  with the weather inclined to be  Showery and warm. Cultivate  the soil adding peat to the top  few inches if it's on the heavy  ��ide. Roughly level it with the  back of a fork.  I It's important to consolidate  it thoroughly to avoid later  sinkage. There's no better way  than treading over the whole  area, inch by inch, with the  weight of your heels.  I Finally, level with a rake,  removing large stones, and stepping back from time to time to  squint over the surface to ensure  that it's level.  Seed can be sown at anything  from one ounce to two ounces  per square yard. To get an idea,  mark a square yard with a couple of three foot canes. A handful of seed weighs about an  ounce. Afterwards, rake it in,  aiming to cover about half the  seed. Sprinkle with fine hose  and keep moist.  Leave no time in getting  parsnips in, they can be expected in 34 weeks. Sow on a  still day. Roots can be left in the  ground and mulched during the  winter and dug up as required.  They're very tasty when parboiled and put around a roast  like potatoes.  Mulching eliminates most  need for hoeing. It results in a  naturally light, fluffy and  porous soil for easy root  development and maximum  aeration and drainage.  Keep mulching.

This Saturn aspect also begins  the start of a seven or eight year  cycle where nothing seems to  move ahead very fast for you.  This is always a frustrating time  for people, but with Uranus  coming along too you may feel  excessive frustration.  The best way to handle this  time is to think of it as a time of  study and preparation. Lower  your expectations of accomplishment somewhat and pay  attention to the small details in  your life.  When you feel the need to  rebel and assert your needs, try  and do it constructively: write,  paint, jog, nurture your sense of  self in a healthy way.  At the end of this period  you're looking at 14 years of increasing accomplishment.

Coast News, April 27,1987  On February 19, the first  Sunshine Coast Naval Reunion  Committee met at the Sechelt  Legion, Branch 140. There was  a nucleus of eight members,  with Les Brown chairing the  committee. It was discovered  there are at least 80 ex-navy and  ex-wartime merchant navy  members in the Sechelt Legion  alone, four of which are ex-  wrens.  The enthusiasm mounted  when the discussion fell to  relating some unforgettable experiences, and to the collection  of memorabilia, which will be  on display at the reunion on  May 8 at the Sechelt Legion. On  the following day, May 9 at  10:30, there will be a parade to  the Cenotaph of all ex-naval  personnel, accompanied by the  Legion Pipe Band, with  ceremonies similar to "Battle of  Atlantic" Sunday.  Then "Up Spirits" at the  legion and the re-kindling of old  naval stories, of which there are  many, amid a display of memorabilia.  The evening holds more  nostalgia with a dinner and  dance based on naval traditions,  and entertainment which could  include  crossing   the  equator  ceremonies!  It is hoped that this will be the  beginning of an annual event so  any of you "old salts" who are  ex-navy or wartime merchant  navy who would like to know  more about "your" reunion can  contact Les at 885-2597 or Ted  at 885-5292.  #1 ENEMY    :  The  & BUSHWHACKER  Steve Cass  885-7421  Please Leave Message  National Forest Week  s*s^= Custom Boat Top  Refits - All Repairs  Windows Replaced, etc.  Sooner or later everyone drops by the Coast News office in Gibsons! ���John Burnside photo  Peace notes  The theme of the upcoming  National Forest Week is  "Forests...A Shared  Resource".

The  anniversary of the Chernobyl  nuclear disaster, this Sunday,  April 26, is a warning, that this  ; could indeed happen.  According to an editorial last  : year in the New Yorker, Chernobyl "was one more glimpse,  afforded at terrible cost, of the  most important truth of our  time. This disaster and the other  ! accidents and crises are in fact  something more than warnings.  They are all that is given us to  know of the end of the world".  Looking at the record of the  nuclear age so far, "we find no  lack of, warnings.

Two of those who have, been  outspoken about the danger of  such accidents will be featured  speakers at the Peace Conference, May 2 at Malaspina  College in Nanaimo. The two,  Dr. Michael Wallace, a UBC  political scientist, and the  Mayor of Victoria, Gretchen  Brewin, represent different ends  of the spectrum of concern.  Dr. Wallace was the host last  year of an international conference on "accidental nuclear  war" at UBC. He is recognized  as an international authority on  this topic and is currently in  Washington, DC testifying to  the US Congress about this  danger.  Mayor Brewin, on the other  hand, is concerned about the  hazard of nuclear ships visiting  her city. Last fall she wrote to  Brian Mulroney asking for a  public inquiry into this practice.  From her position of public  responsibility, she called for an  examination of the accident  hazard and whatever emergency  plans may be in place.  Despite all the evidence of  risk which was presented at the  People's Enquiry last year, the  government has been cavalier in  rejecting any review of their  policies. They have now also  refused the mayor's request.  In refusing to hold a public  inquiry on the issue, Defence  Minister Perrin Beatty wrote to  Remember...  Every year, more than 1000 Canadian workers  are killed on the job.  Thousands more are permanently disabled.  Hundreds of thousands are injured.  Thousands of others die from cancer, lung  disease, and other ailments caused by exposure  to toxic substances at their workplaces.  April 28 of each year has been chosen by the  Canadian Labour Congress as a Day of Mourning for these victims of workplace accidents and  disease.  It is a day to remember the supreme sacrifice  they have been forced to make in order to earn  a living.  A day to renew pressure on governments for  tougher occupational health and safety standards.  A day to rededicate ourselves to the goal of  making Canada's workplaces safer.

''-!*>JJ Sunshine Coast Labour Council  ' ~f��7ii<J>^'  the mayor that "most of your  concerns have already been  presented to the government via  Operation Dismantled recent  publication Unsafe Harbours  and the People's Enquiry." He  pointed out that the People's  Enquiry had received a grant  from the Canadian Institute for  International Peace and Security (CUPS) and noted that  CUPS is co-funded by the  Departments of National  Defence and External Affairs.  In essence he was saying that  his department doesn't have to  explore such issues because the  People's Enquiry has already  done so. He was also trying to  imply that the DND had supported the enquiry. That is a  load of .... Pardon me, Mr.  Beatty, but your agency (DND)  did not fund us. CUPS did so  independently.   In   fact,   your  department   (under   former  Minister Erik Neilsen) refused  to  co-operate  with  us;   they  refused us a speaker; they made  critical information unavailable  to us; they failed to respond to  the recommendations of the enquiry, and seem again completely intent on ignoring the major  public health risk these ships  represent.  Beatty's letter is a nifty bit of  political stickhandling. First the  government refuses to participate in the enquiry, then they  claim credit for it so as to justify  not holding an inquiry of their  own, and all the while they still  refuse to deal with the issues  raised! Is this evidence of a  responsible government?  In his letter Beatty argued  that the US navy's nuclear safety standards exceed our own,  and that anyway, "the Three  Mile Island and Chernobyl incidents are not representative of  the nuclear propulsion systems  on US Navy warships".  But that's not the point!  Those are land-based. These are  floating nuclear reactors which  are on record as colliding with  things, including one another.  He also argued that "granting allied naval vessels access to  Canadian waters, ports, and  facilities has long been an integral part of Canada's defence  co-operation. The government  is not prepared to see the conduct of such activities  impeded".  Nor obviously is the government prepared to see such issues  discussed publicly. Beatty added, "It is not the government's  intention to initiate a public  review of the policy regarding  warship visits".  Mayor Brewin's reaction was  disappointment. "I am disappointed with the thinness of the  replies we have had," she said,  adding that she feels "very  vulnerable in terms of a nuclear  accident."  Despite the different focus of  their concerns, Dr. Wallace and  Mayor Brewin are alike in pointing out that for all our caution,  human beings and our technologies are dangerously imperfect. Wallace fears that we  may accidentally incinerate the  globe, just as Mayor Brewin  fears the accidental irradiation  of her city. The government, on  the other hand, seems to fear  nothing, except some sort of ill-  defined Soviet "threat" to  Canada.  Our leaders evidently feel  justified with the risk they subject us to, on the grounds of our  greater security. This seems to  me to be ridiculously irresponsible, especially in light of the  Chernobyl disaster. The simple  reality is that our own government is exposing us to more risk  in our "defence" than we face  from the so-called "enemy". In  fact, we would not be one jot  less secure if these nuclear  vessels were excluded from our  waters.  For conference information  call 247-8015 or 247-8368. Free  for students.

Their goal was to secure  ^government .recognition and the  legalization of registered nurses  in the province. It was not until  1918 that the government finally enacted legislation  establishing the Graduate  Nurses Association of British  Columbia which then opened  an office and began registering  nurses.  From its earliest years, the  association has acted to improve working conditions for its  members and, at one time, was  the official bargaining agent for  nurses in the province. In 1980,  it was decided that these activities should be handled by a  separate organization and the  B.C. Nurses Union was formed.  Today, while it continues to  provide a wide range of services  to members, RNABC's primary  objective is "to benefit the people of British Columbia by furthering the standard of nursing  practice".  ).  ��*  ��*  in  i.  ).  u  i.  !:  i  i  t.  v  ?*  &  V  Garry's Crane & Cat  450 J.D.

Restak, MD, is an interesting new book published by  Doubleday 1986, for those who  want to journey a little deeper  into the how's and why's of  babies, the roots of the human  race. Dr. Restak is an experienced writer and lecturer from  Washington DC.  It is a refreshing book. The  author's considerable perspective and consciousness display  themselves in humble attitudes,  occasionally poetic prose and a  keen awareness of the paradoxes of the human condition.  While Dr. Restak writes from a  scientific orientation, his sense  of wonder and delight in the  complexity of life, pervades the  work. Each chapter is satisfy-  ingly complete, containing  mammalian research, the  author's interpretations and living examples. I found these neat  packages helpful in digesting the  book, as they provided natural  pauses in which to ponder the  information and resulting questions, before diving in for more.  While the author uses some  technical medical language, it is  presented in a conversational  style that creates the common  ground required to understand  the meaning of the information.  The book's theme, as indicated  by the title, is to point out how  the potential for the adult brain  is created in the unique structures and bio-chemistry of the  fetal and new-born brain.  His comments are sprinkled  with intriguing references to  history, other cultures and areas  of study. Dr. Restak seems to  want us to see the baby's brain  as an organic substance of great  interest, which is also responsible for the intense human experiences of everything from  joy to sorrow. His slightly  caustic remarks about medical  ethics, attitudes and practices  gives the reader a sense of how  the human-nature of the topic  can be lost in objectivity.  He addresses a number of  questions that have recently  been popular confusions, such  as "When is the brain finished  growing?" arid, "When does it  fetal thought and the relationship of brain size to intelligence.  There is an entire chapter on  brain development in prematurity, several on emotions and  learning; the interplay of  physical growth of the body and  brain, and the interplay of  genetics and environment. In  that last section is included  some interesting information on  the effects of using technological intervention in reproduction.  His chapter on the concept of  bonding was to me, a highlight  of the book, as it is one of the  most concise, comprehensive,  sensible and sensitive descriptions that I have read. The one  on maternal instinct was interesting but somewhat incomplete. More information on  this phenomenon followed, but  would have seemed more relevant if it had been included in  context.  One of the problems that I  felt about the book was that the  first half is a bit heavy going  imam mi  with so much neural physiology, and might discourage  some readers. The second half is  much richer in the flesh and  blood of babyhood which made  it more useful. With a different  organization of the information, some of the repetition of  data could be eliminated, making the book more consistent  and captivating from the beginning. The illustrations are also a  little weak: some of them were  helpful but tended to be poorly  labelled.  Altogether, I am glad I read  the book. It has given me a  clearer sense of my role as a  parent, and useful information  that has added to my understanding of why babies, and the rest  of humanity, do what they do.  While it is fascinating casual  reading, I think it would fit in  well as topical reading for a college level course in childhood  development.

Coast News, April 27,1987  The Sunshine Coast Regional  District (SCRD) is facing a  penalty charge of $4500 from  the Workers' Compensation  Board (WCB) after an occupational hygiene officer inspected  the work site of the Roberts  Creek water project in January  of this year.  At a meeting of the Public  Utilities Committee last Thursday, where directors received  word that an appeal of the fine  had been denied, Jim Gurney  call the fine "excessive" and the  matter was referred to SCRD  solicitors.

Although a protective cage had  been specially constructed for  work on the water system, on  the day that the inspection occurred the cage was not used by  workers and was improperly  placed.  Regulations required that  when work is being done in a  trench exceeding a four foot  depth, shoring and/or sloping is  done to ensure worker safety,  and this had also not been done.  Public Works supervisor  Gordon Dixon told directors  that the supervisor was not on  site at the time and the workers  had decided not to use the protective cage.  The inspector also found that  there were inadequate first aid  supplies on site. Jim Gurney  told the meeting that staff had  been unaware that they were  responsible for providing first  aid supplies for contractors and  therefore had only provided  those required for their own  staff. Once they were made  aware of their error, Gurney  said the appropriate upgrading  of the first aid kit was done.  A third infraction listed on  the inspection report stated that  no notice of the project had  been filed with the WCB, a requirement that Gordon Dixon  claims is quite new and that he  was unaware of.  While Area A director Gordon Wilson agreed that the fine  was excessive, he hastened to  point out that "the act is designed to protect working people".  He recommended that the committee attempt to bring forth  some recommendations that  would ensure worker safety.  Lack of  beach  scored  While Travel Sunshine Coast  is launching its tourist promotion campaign for this summer  with billboards and busboards  featuring a fish, and the words  "Catch me on the Sunshine  Coast", Pat Mulligan appeared  at the regional district committee meeting last Thursday to tell  them that there are few places  left on the peninsula where  anglers can get access to salt  water.  In his presentation to the  Parks Committee, Mulligan  told the directors that he's lived  here since 1969 and during that  time he's seen launching ramps  disappear until there are only  two left that the public has free  access to, one in Davis Bay and  one at Coopers Green.  "I'm too old to haul a boat  over logs and rocks to launch  it," he said. "Last year it cost  me $100 at Gibsons Marina for  launching fees just to go fishing.  I can't afford that. A lot of  older people can't afford it."  The board appeared very  sympathetic to Mulligan's complaints and Director Gordon  Wilson made a recommendation that the Sunshine Coast  Regional District (SCRD) find  out what land is available and  "get to work". However,  SCRD chairman Jim Gurney  informed Wilson that the search  had already been done and the  solution was not as easy as  might be thought. He explained  that any beach access that had  been located had a problem of  either being too steep to make a  launching ramp plausible or it  was located somewhere with no  place for parking.  The committee agreed to  seriously address the problem as  promptly as possible.  When contacted by the Coast  News, Travel Sunshine Coast  spokesman Bryan Rubin admitted that there is a problem. "We  can bring people here, to the  Sunshine Coast," he said, "but  we're not in a position to provide those kinds of services.  That's up to the Chambers of  Commerce and the local  governments."
