 Ty.rrgEr_^p --.T-.-*f7.^rr~^T  'i :-  ' Legislative Library '.  Parliament Buildings  Victoria, BC     * ' '  V8V 1X4  ���:-'->  37 &  g pays off  Community Development Officer Irene Lugsdin and Maurice  Egan, recently appointed chairman of the Economic Development  Commission were largely instrumental in the achievement of the  Community Futures program. See adjacent story.  Prolonged and persistent lobbying has paid off in a major  job creation grant for the Sunshine Coast from the federal  goverment. More than two  years of steadfast effort has led  to the granting of a Community  Futures grant for the Sunshine  Coast by the Conservative  government.  The effort was spearheaded  by Community Development  Officer Irene Lugsdin with the  considerable assistance of the  new chairman of the Economic  Development Commission,  Maurice Tfgan.  "If more residents of B.C.  would lobby Ottawa as well as  you have," MP Mary Collins is  reported to have told Lugsdin,  "B.C. would get more of the  assistance that can be available  from the federal government."  The Community Futures program is a program which makes  venture capital available to an  area under the jurisdiction of a  committee of local people. Funding can be made available for  job-creating projects for which  bank funding is not available  because of high risk or low  security factors.  The Sunshine Coast is one of  six areas in Canada to be successful in its bid to participate in  the program which has been  highly successful in creating  jobs in those areas where it is  already in place.  A press release from the of  fice of MP Collins this week  said, "Employment and Immigration Minister Benoit  Bouchard today announced that  the communities of Sechelt,  Gibsons, Egmont, Garden Bay,  Port Mellon, Granthams Landing, Roberts Creek, Halfmoon  Bay, Madeira Park, and Earls  Cove have been selected as communities for assistance under  Community Futures, one of six  programs comprising the Canadian Jobs Strategy.  "Community Futures is an  $83 million program designed to  help communities faced with  major layoffs and chronic unemployment develop new  employment opportunities.  "Despite high unemployment  in these communities there is  strong evidence that they have  the potential for economic  recovery," the minister said.  "Community Futures builds  on the existing strength of the  communities allowing them to  pull together to decide for  themselves what are the best  ways of dealing with economic  problems.  "A Community Futures  committee composed of local  business, government, labour,  and community representatives  will be established. Through  Community Futures, funds will  be provided during the next two  years to help the committee take  a realistic look at the opportunities for developing and t  diversifying the local economy.  The amount to be spent in the  community will depend in part  on the committee's recommendations.  "The Community Futures  committee may recommend one  or more program options under  Community Futures to help  workers start businesses, learn  new skills, or relocate to seek  jobs. There is also a provision  for the establishment of a  business development centre to  provide advice and equity investment in new or existing  small firms."  Community Development  Officer Lugsdin paid tribute to  the assistance received from MP  Mary Collins and MP Ray Skel-  ly during the long period of  preparation for the Community  Futures designation.  SCRD chairman has  praise for Lugsdin  Sunshine Coast Regional  District (SCRD) Chairman Jim  Gurney made the official announcement at last Thursday's  meeting of the board that the  Sunshine Coast has been  designated a Community  Futures area.  This classification "makes us  a member of a very elite club,"  Gurney told the meeting. As  well as making large amounts of  money available to this area for  employment development, it  "puts us at the front of the line  for other government money."  The board supported his motion to send a letter of appreciation to Mary Collins, MP for  Capilano, and Ray Skelly for  their support. The letter will include the statement that "We  see this not as a hand-out, but  as a helping hand. We'll use the  money   to    become   self-  sufficient."  Gurney also told the board  that he felt it was important to  recognise the contributions of  Community Development Officer Irene Lugsdin. "Her  abilities and efforts have seen  this through to successful completion," he said.  A letter of commendation  will be placed in Lugsdin's file  for her efforts on the project.  The Sunshine  Published on the Sunshine Coast      25e per copy on news stands  January 19,1987       Volume41       Issue 3  Work begins on February 2  Tetrahedon gets grant  4a_~_K>>if  ?���*, faft/^ :���'- . Ki*��*i^**i^*^riS^V*'vt��'^^;i.  Confirmation has been  received that the Tetrahedon  Ski Club is to receive a grant to  proceed with their cross-country  ski project in the high country  above the Sunshine Coast.  Spokesman George Smith  told the Coast News in an interview last week that the grant  totals $153,502. Two thirds of  that sum, approximately, will  provide salaries for eight people  for 39 weeks. All hiring will be  done utilizing residents of the  Sunshine Coast.  Under the Job Development  Program of the Federal Department of Employment and Immigration, work will get underway on the project on February  2.  The first part of the project  will see the building of log  cabins at the airport on Field  Road. The cabins will be dismantled then and driven up logging roads as far as possible for  eventual location on their final  site by helicopter. The cabin  building phase of the project  will be followed by a trail  building phase in the Mount  Steele-Tannis Lake area.  There will be a seven week  educational program within the  project scattered throughout the  length of the project. It will in  clude log cabin building, chain-  saw instruction, industrial first  aid course free to project  workers, trail engineering, and a  job search component through  Capilano College in which the  workers will take the skills  learned and build resumes to  facilitate future employment.  Four log cabins will be built  with 16 by 20 foot interiors,  with porch and overhanging  roof. Twenty kilometres of trail  construction will be included in  this phase of construction.  According to Smith, the entire system will become the property of the Ministry of Forests  recreation system.  "The district municipality of  Sechelt has been most helpful,"  Smith  told  the  Coast   News.  "Land has been provided on  which to build the cabins initially, office space has been provided and Mayor Koch has been  wholehearted in his support on  the project."  Smith said that the project  will still need a lot of community support.  "We will be knocking on  doors of various business people and volunteers are most  welcome since the allotment for  overheads in the budget is not  particularly generous, however,  the project is going ahead and  working really well."  According to Smith, a subcommittee has been formed to  provide solid and competent  direction. It includes businessmen and an accountant.

When the board initially  became aware of the problem  last fall, they notified the  Aquaculture Association of the  regulations prohibiting the  disposal of fish offal at a public  dump without prior arrangement.  The SCRD asked the association to inform its members of  the proper procedures for  disposal of animal matter. This  included contacting the machine  operator at the dump so that a  pit could be dug and lime purchased to spread over the waste  before it's buried.  Since fish farms in the area  do not appear to be complying  voluntarily, Wilson called for  action.  "If this keeps up through the  spring and summer," he said,  "the dump will be a disaster."  Chairman Jim Gurney  pointed out that the district has  no mechanism to enforce their  by-law. Gibsons representative  Norm Peterson inquired about  the possibility of criminal  charges, while in a less serious  vein another director suggested  taking the fish back to the  owners.  Wilson admitted that "These  people have a legitimate problem of where to dispose of this  waste, and we need to address  that."  In the meantime, the board  will be looking into the criminal  liability of the offending fish  farmers, and will also re-notify  the Aquaculture Association of  the problem and run newspaper  ads.  Local boxers win gold  Local boxers Mark Jaeger and Tony Duffy were gold  medal winning members of the triumphant B.C. team which  dominated the Western Canadian and Invitational Boxing  Championships held last week in Saskatoon.  The B.C. team, coached by Barry Krangle of the Sunshine  Coast and George Shields of Campbell River, won the Best  Team Award, taking a total of five gold medals, three silver,  and two bronze with the 10 boxers participating.  Details of the Jaeger and Duffy matches are carried inside.  Well, yes, it does sometimes snow on the Sunshine Coast, but heck that doesn't stop us golfing.  ���Fran Burnside photo  UFAWU negotiating  Gibsons dook takeover  In an interview with the  Coast News, recording  secretary, Clay Young, of the  United Fisherman and Allied  Workers' Union (UFAW), Gibsons Local 21, informed the  newspaper that, "We are in the  process of trying to obtain the  lease on the Gibsons government dock.  "We have been in contact  with Small Craft and  Harbours," a branch of the  Federal Department of Fisheries  and Oceans, who are responsible for the floats, "and are now  waiting for their decision.  "We should have some kind  of reply within the next few  weeks. The fishermen feel that  the management of the dock  has not been what it should  be," explained Mr. Young.  "We believe that there has been  a lot of revenue missed, such as  boaters tying up overnight and  not paying any wharfage fee,  due to the lack of a wharfinger  in the evenings. In our opinion,  all users of the floats should  pay."  Members of Gibsons UFAW  Local 21 met with Small Craft  and Harbours Operations Officer, Harry Brooks, in early  December, at which time, "He  seemed very receptive to our  proposal," commented secretary Young.  Topics of discussion at the  December meeting ranged from  upgrading the existing electrical  service and the need for more  floats capable of handling large  vessels, to enforcing existing  regulations, monitoring young  children running around without lifejackets, and making sure  that dogs are kept on a leash.  According to Clay Young,  "There are still items to be settled like liability insurance, fire  coverage, wharfinger's salary  and, the cost of obtaining the  lease from the Department of  Fisheries and Oceans.  "Our local would like to see  the wharfinger maintain the  floats eight hours per day, with  the possibility of longer hours  during   the   summer,"   said  spokesman Young. "We hope,  in the future, to take over the  main wharf head from the  Ministry of Transport.  "To my knowledge," stated  Mr. Young, "this is the first  time that a group such as ours  has ever undertaken this kind of  venture. Who better to take the  responsibility of the floats than  the people that use it most. We  will, if an agreement with  Fisheries and Oceans takes  place, endeavor to run the  docks as fairly as possible, to all  user groups."  Cadet aids victims  of traffic accident  The presence of mind of a member of the Seaforth Army  Cadets 2963 of the Sunshine Coast is credited with being of  important assistance in the accident at Hopkins Landing on  Sunday, January 11, which seriously injured Sharon Shields  and 12 year old Emily Dignard.  Sergeant Earl Buchan was travelling with his family near  the scene of the accident when it occurred and immediately  took charge of the accident scene before the arrival of the ambulance. He calmed the two occupants of the car, who were  trapped inside, and is given credit for keeping them from going further into shock. On the arrival of the ambulance crew  he reported on the probable injuries and was apparently right  on in his assessment.  Letter of commendation were received by Sergeant Buchan  from Ambulance Unit Chief Keith Baker and President  Eileen Smith of the Royal Canadian Legion, Branch 140,  Sechelt. Coast News, January 19,1987  atience and  co-operation  start 1987  off well  The news that the Economic Development Commission  has succeeded in having the Sunshine Coast designated as  a Community Futures area and that the Tetrahedon Ski  Club has been successful in getting a grant to begin to open  up the hinterlands of the Sunshine Coast as a crosscountry ski centre 1987 off to a rollicking start.  Congratulations to those who worked so quietly and effectively on these major initiatives, specifically Irene  Lugsdin and her associates on the Community Futures  project, and George Smith and associates on the ski project.  It seems from this vantage point to be instructive that  these successful forays into community development were  made without the excessive hoopla and carnival claims  with which we have become all too familiar in other recent  undertakings.  The lesson for the Sunshine Coast is surely that, to be  successful, the quiet work of preparation and persuasion  must go on patiently and co-operately before successful  projects can be undertaken. Lugsdin and Smith epitomize  the quiet facilitator working with all and within the requisite guidelines to develop a track record and a refined  proposal which will have a chance of success.  Each would be among the first to point out the great  deal of assistance and co-operation they have found along  their paths, but theirs is an approach which invites cooperation rather than confrontation. It is an approach that  the Sunshine Coast would do well to implement in future  undertakings.  5 YEARS AGO  Concerned Citizen's Groups and Ratepayers Associations are forming up and down the Sunshine Coast to  take action against recent assessment increases of 50  per cent and more. Local government officials are  receiving calls from citizens worried about the affects  of the increased assessments on their tax bill, and over  700 letters of appeal have already been received at the  district assessment office in Sechelt.  Assessor Larry Nelson told the Coast News that the  unusually high jumps in local assessments reflect the  market value of properties which rose phenomenally in  1981. He agreed the local market is showing a;decline,  however, sales prices of homes have not dropped very  much.  10 YEARS AGO  Student council president, Charlene Baldwin,  delivered the student address at the inaugural  ceremonies that marked the official opening of  Chatelech Junior Secondary School in Sechelt on  January 15.  15 YEARS AGO  Protestors opposed to the Gibsons by-pass, as planned by the provincial highways department, have apparently won a big point.  According to a Vancouver Sun story of last Saturday,  Chairman JH Tyner of the regional board said that B.C.  Highways officials appear willing to change the route of  the by-pass if enough people are unhappy about it.  20 YEARS AGO  Sechelt RCMP are seeking witnesses who saw the  tug Gulf Master before rescue operations started, as the  result of the sinking of the vessel with the loss of five  lives.  The sinking occurred on Tuesday of last week off  Trail Island near Sechelt and authorities are anxious to  obtain some evidence connected with the tug before it  disappeared.  25 YEARS AGO  The history of Gibsons area volunteer firemen as  published in this issue is no doubt the story of many  volunteer fire departments, not only in Gibsons but in  most small centres across Canada.  30 YEARS AGO  Reg Paul was returned as the chief of the Sechelt Indian Band in the January 12 election. Re-elected also  were councillors Ernie Joe and Henry Paul for a two  year term with Charlie Craigan as the third councillor.  35 YEARS AGO  One of the most expensive and least used wharfs on  this coast is again out of commission following recent  gales which tore out huge portions of the causeway and  lifted portions of the planking off the Roberts Creek  wharf.  40 YEARS AGO  Powell River police have received notification of the  lifting of wartime restrictions on the sale of explosives,  and point out that district residents will no longer be required to obtain permits from the police department in  order to buy explosives here.

In cities,  towns and hamlets the world  over people are gathering to eat  haggis, tatties and neeps (mashed potatoes and turnip) in  honour of a poet whose work is  written in a dialect so broad that  most of those who pay tribute  to him have never read him and  have no intention of trying or  who would have very little comprehension if they did try.  For Scotsmen, January 25  has replaced November 30 as  the national day of tribute. If  few people have any real awareness of who or what Roo|k->  Burns was, much, much fewer}, c  know anything at all about  Saint Andrew, the patron saint  of Scotland, whose calendar  day is the last day of November.  Few who gather in his  memory know anything more  about Burns than that he was a  Scot, a ploughman, and he reportedly drank and wenched  himself to death an an early age.  Why his memory is still toasted  is probably regarded by most as  some peculiarity of the Scots  and as they are such difficult  and headstrong folk it is probably to humour them.  When the snickering about  his womanizing and socializing  are laid to one side, what do we  have? That Burns was a great  man must be true for his birth  Peace Talk  date to be saluted almost 200  years after his death all over the  world. But wherein did the  greatness lie?  In historical context, Burns  lived during both the American  and French Revolutions. His  was a voice which decried the  artificiality and injustice of the  society in which he found himself. He spoke strongly and with  passion about the worth of the  individual and with tenderness  for all living things.  The recorded evidence is that  this largely self-taught man of  the soil moved with grace and  ease in the conversational circles  of the most learned of his time.  More than any personal failings, it was his outspoken support of democracy which proved his undoing. During his few  adult years, the French Revolution was beheading aristrocrats,  a practice not designed to  endear it to the aristocrats who  marshalled all the power and  the privilege in Burns' own  country.  In his youth, the Americans  fought their revolution and  freed themselves from the  British Empire.  The democratic ideal which  these Revolutions in theory  espoused enflamed the poet into  passionate support and at the  same time made him suspect  among the favour-givers from  whom, with his gifts, he should  have been able to expect much.  "Man's inhumanity to man  makes countless thousands  mourn," is as fresh and relevant  today as it was when Burns penned it into being. First hand he  knew the terrible and hopeless  poverty which the vast majority  of mankind was then and is today compelled to endure.  It was primarily this passion  for justice and an impatience  and an anger against the injustice which caused so much  unnecessary suffering that condemned Robert Burns to live  and die in poverty. His was and  is a great voice crying out for  human justice and he stands as  a symbol of the greatness of the  human potential which  crumbles and dies from poverty, neglect, or exploitation.  When we pay tribute to him  we pay tribute to the crushed  flower of human potential, of  greatness of understanding and  so ground under the heel of  economic tyranny and shallow  privilege. His is the voice of the  savagely exploited for aye trying  to be heard and heeded. His  memory enriches us.

And fare thee weel a while!  And I will come again, my luve,  Though it were ten thousand mile.  Robert Burns  Crisis management - survival key  by Alan Wilson  Before Christmas 1 wrote a  column decribing what is probably the greatest danger we  face in the nuclear age, the  danger of accidental nuclear  war. I described the possibility  that due to a technical malfunction, human error, a misinterpreted incident or an unauthorized action, the world as we  know it might be brought to an  end.  That column prompted a  number of responses, including  the comments of a friend who  said it had caused him to  wonder whether he ought  perhaps to withdraw all his  retirement savings and take a  long holiday! And this is by no  means an untypical response.  Few of us think that we can do  anything to change this situation. The enormity of the  threat, and our sense of  powerlessness, provides what  amounts to "the turtle  response".  But there is in fact, much we  can do. And to be successful,  the peace movement must propose solutions to the problems  we describe, in order to build a  sense of hope and to encourage  people to act before it truly is  too late. To this end, I would  recommend a book called  Beyond The Hotline, by  William Ury, head of Harvard's  Nuclear Negotiation Project.  Ury begins his book by  describing a scene from the Arthurian legends at the time of  the rebellion by the King's son  Mordred, when the two great  armies faced one another on the  field of battle. Rather than immediately engaging, however, a  truce was called and negotiations begun.  Fearing a trick, both armies  stood poised to fight, waiting.  ''Negotiations were proceeding  smoothly until a snake, slithering in the grass, suddenly bit  one of the knights. The knight  cried out and drew his sword to  kill it. The assembled armies  mistook this as a general signal  for battle and sprang to the attack. By day's end, all but two  of the 100,000 warriors lay  dead. King Arthur and his son  fought and killed each other,  and with them perished  Camelot, forever.  "Today the nations of the  West and the nations of the East  face a similar danger," says  Ury, "Each side has marshalled  enormous military forces poised  to strike at any moment. Fearing total destruction, the two  sides have been talking...yet, at  any time, a regional conflict, a  terrorist act, or an accident  could suddenly ignite a deadly  confrontation between the  superpowers."  Ury suggests that, "If King  Arthur and his son had each  had a silver trumpet to signal to  their armies that a mistake had  been made and no battle was intended, the talks would have  continued and eventually the armies might have disbanded. The  equivalent of these trumpets is  needed today by the superpowers," he says.  Ury is suggesting the  establishment of a crisis control  centre, with "twin locations - in  Washington and Moscow - electronically linked", and staffed  by personnel from both sides.  This would be in addition to the  existing Hot Line which he says,  "is simply not enough". He  argues that, "Nothing really  substitutes for talking face to  face," and that such negotiations, "will be more productive  if the people on both sides  already know each other, have  worked together, and have  prepared themselves for a  nuclear crisis".  Is this a real possibility? Ury  feels certain it is. "Crisis control  is one of those rare issues on  which doves and hawks find  that...they can agree. No one  wants a crisis to get out of control.  "Crisis control," he says, "is  common ground. There is support for it across the spectrum,  and little real opposition." It is  also "common sense. It doesn't  require detailed knowledge of  nuclear weapons but, is readily  understood because it is about  people and making decisions.  Almost everyone can intuitively  grasp how easily escalation can  get out of control in a conflict,  and how both sides must work,,  and work together, to preveriP  it"  -ux\ ���  Consciousness of the danger  of accidental nucl��&r ^w^>i$& ,  even penetrated 'tpgjlie highest;  echelons of gove,raijnent.

Ury, in his book, describes  how the original Hot Line was  established, primarily due to the  persistence of two men, a Harvard economics professor and a  magazine editor in New York  who met with Kennedy and  Kruschev and lobbied intensively for this development.  "Who were the key actors in  creating the Hot Line?" asks  Ury. "Who conceived it, supported it, created the political  climate? It was not "the government", but people. The same  applies to making crisis control  a reality today. It is not up to  "them". It is up to each of us." mil Vil>li��llliniillir�� illK���ii'Mill  iIiiIHii' l" liri'lrr lWlillhl��illiki��i_ii���illiitti'-'irMMiM  Coast News, January 19,1987  3.  Editor,  Here is a further instalment in  the sad narrative of our country's nuclear folly: a further example of throwing more good  money after bad. This time it is  into a gigantic hole in the  Laurentian Shield of Eastern  Manitoba. They are excavating  a research laboratory consisting  of a network of tunnels 240  metres down into the native  grey granite.  A thousand people work in  the lab. The purpose of their  endeavour is to prove that  nuclear wastes, radioactive for  thousands of years, can be  stored safely without danger to  the environment until their  poisonous effects have  dissipated. A geologist interviewed on the site explains that  canisters of radioactive waste  will be buried in the granite,  which is one of the hardest and  strongest rocks in the world.  Japan, the US and other countries eager, of course, to foist  their nuclear problems upon us  poor dupes, are contributing to  the colossal expense of the  undertaking so that they also  can store their nuclear garbage  in the great hole.  The geologist in the lab  justifies the theory upon which  the research is conducted. It is  based on the mathematical  device of extrapolation. Doug  Peters, a mathematician and an  anti-nuclear expert, denies that  such reasoning is valid.  "Geology," he says, "is not a  predictive science." He means  we cannot forecast the awesome  moods of earthquakes and  other inscrutable movements in  the rocks of the earth's crust.  "Granite will crack and water  will seep through," he says, and  he points out one of such cracks  in the.tunnel wall.  In 1999, (if we survive that  long) the research will be com  pleted. Meanwhile, Atomic  Energy of Canada, dedicated to  the vain effort of turning fallacy  into truth, is locked in an enterprise already doomed to failure,  already an anachronism and a  dangerous example to the  world.  Isabel Ralph  Smoking costs  Editor,  Recently a most interesting  piece of information has come  to my attention. The smoke  from a cigarette contains 51  chemicals, among them is  cyanide and carbon monoxide.  They are as lethal to the non-  smoker as they are to the  smoker.  Now, it seems to me that our  government (who is in actual  fact the populace) is not using  very much sense in their "quit  smoking" vendetta.  1. The government (populace) pays millions of dollars in  subsidies for the growth and  manufacture of tobacco products.  2. Smoking is encouraged by  advertising - again, costing  millions of dollars.  3. Ultra-attractive packaging  makes a package of cigarettes  an attractice item, especially to  young people.  On the other side of the coin,  we have the government (populace) spending millions of  dollars in a "campaign" to stop  people from smoking. Why are  we not spending these millions  Fix ferry traffic  Editor:  1 would like to share some  thoughts about ferry traffic.  Between Christmas and New  Year's, I was returning to the  coast. Signs on the upper  highway read "Ferry Traffic  Use Right Lane Only". I did  not because I thought if I could  not get on the ferry I would  have supper in Horseshoe Bay.  [ drove on down the centre  lane past a long line of waiting  cars. Near the toll booths  however, an attendant asked me  where I was headed. He then  directed me through a break in  the line, straight to the Langdale  toll booth.  I found there was no line-up  for Langdale at all. The congestion must have been almost all  Nanaimo traffic, plus the Jaw-  abiding Langdale drivers who  thought they had to line-up too.  There ought to be better signs  and better directions for Langdale drivers at such times of  crowding. Maybe cars for  Nanaimo should use the right  hand lanes and the right hand  toll booths so that Bowen and  Langdale vehicles do not have  to pass through.  On this side at Langdale, the  sooner another lane is built on  the highway, the better. Of  course this would reach from  the terminal to North Road.  Many of us wish for better  ferry service. Instead of just  complaining, we should get in  touch with our residents' representative on the ferry committee  and follow up with petitions  and briefs. It is important to  channel our wishes to get some  action.  W. Rousseau  Stop Star Wars  Editor,  How would you like to do  real work toward:  1. An end to designing and  building space weapons (Star  Wars), and international bans  on nuclear bomb test?  2. Canada becoming a nuclear-  weapons-free country?  3. An end to the testing of low-  level flight missiles?  Are these important aims?  Worth the effort?  They were recently adopted  as Sunshine Coast Peace Committee's focus for 1987.

Fifty happy people danced the night away and  welcomed in the new year. Then  the Pot Luck Dinner and Tree  Burning brought out many  families (approximately 39 people) for a fabulous feast and to  view Betty and Ernie Woods  slides of Europe.  PEOPLE PLACE  Next, the general meeting  brought forth about 20 interested residents to hear Mayor  Bud Koch with Councilmen Len  Herder and Mike Shanks tell us  the projected plans for Sechelt.  The emphasis is on "people"  and making Sechelt a People  Place. Their enthusiasm is catching. They seem to have  figured it out down to almost  the last detail. They did not  hesitate to answer our questions.  However, like any organization, they are our chosen executive, and only as good or as  bad as we allow them to be. We  were told the council meetings  at 7:30 pm, second and fourth  Wednesdays of each month, in  the municipal hall, are  sometimes attended by as few as  three people with two of those  being reporters. It would seem  that quite a number of us are  "letting George do it." Fine!  Just don't cry the blues after the  fact.

Students meet board  When the Board of School  Trustees held their meeting at  Sechelt Elementary School last  week, teachers and students had  the opportunity to personally  tell the board about some of the  special programs offered at  their school.  Native language teacher  Stella Johnson, demonstrated  one of the teaching techniques  used in the class of 37 students  who are learning the Sechelt  language. 14 students played a  game of HUPIT, a modified  form of bingo which uses pictures, and repeated the often  difficult words as Johnson called them out.  Ed Stringer, who teaches the  French immersion class, urged  the board to begin planning for  next year immediately in order  to keep this highly successful  class running.  Several students from the  "gifted program" spoke about  their class and the projects that  they have taken on. These included everything from designing a city of the future to studying brain hemispheres.  After many other presentations on a variety of subjects,  Chairman Maureen Clayton  commented, "It is my opinion  that a successful school takes  strategy and planning. It seems  to me that Sechelt Elementary  has gone a long way toward accomplishing that."  flrliirlMl  M&Si'iWrt  by Joan Wilson, 883-9606  If you put on a few extra  pounds over Christmas, and  one of your New Year's resolutions was to get in shape, Robi  and the staff at the Aquatic  Centre have a program that will  help you get lean and mean  again.

Presentations were made by the CNIB  and the Gibsons Lions Club for co-sponsored poster campaign "Sightless". ���Kent Sheridan photo  George    in    Gibsons  Students get poster awards  by George Cooper, 886-8520  The intermediate pupils of  Cedar   Grove    Elementary  School listened with grave attention to Burt Johnson of the  .Canadian National Institute for  r.the Blind (CNIB), as he told  :them of his blindness and what  it is like to be blind.  Mr. Johnson, who is District  Administrator of the Central  Coast Region, had come to the  school last January 13, accompanied by Larry Labonte and  Jim Ironside of the Gibsons  Lions Club, to present prizes to  the seven pupils whose posters  were adjudged outstanding in a  contest sponsored by both the  CNIB and the Gibsons Lions.  Kimberly Phillips' first prize  poster was entitled "You Can't  Afford to be Careless with Your  ��� Eyes", and it depicted the trees,  sunshine, and a rainbow that  are there for the eyes to appreciate, and a black square of  nothingness that is the world of  the blind.  "The CNIB will keep your  posters," said Mr. Johnson,  "to use in our programs,  especially the ones on prevention of loss of sight. But Mr.  Andow of the Gibsons Lions,  has put each of your posters on  film and you will each get a  snapshot of your poster through  ;the kindness of the Webbers  and their 1-Hour Photo shop."  ? Mr. Johnson told the pupils  to close their eyes almost shut  and then to look up at the gym  lights. "You see only a blur of  light? That's all I ever see, and  all because of an accident with  fire-crackers when I was 15.  "So many lose their sight  from carelessly thrown stones,  sticks, snowballs, even paper  wads that you may shoot across  the room when the teacher is  out."  The CNIB, Burt Johnson  told me, is dedicated to assist  the legally blind as well as  anyone whose vision is impaired  to the extent it restricts normal  activities. Among the services of  the CNIB are rehabilitation,  mobility, career counselling.  Then there's a talking book  service and recreation programs  of all kinds which include a  vacation lodge on Bowen  Island.  The CNIB recruits and trains  volunteers to assist blind persons. For example, Mr. Johnson's driver, Don Ellerton, said  that now he is retired and he can  give some service as a volunteer.  In this regard, those who have  known former Elphinstone  principal, Syd Potter, will be interested to know that he spends  a day a week at the UBC library  tape-recording textbooks for the  use of sightless students.  To return to Cedar Grove  and the winners of the contest:  Kimberly Phillips received $25;  Emily Duzic and Charlene  Chamberlain, $15 and $10 for  second and third prizes. Consolation prizes of $5 each were  given to Josephine Duzic, Andrew Braun, Peter Kowaleski,  and Janet Bonaguro.  VALENTINE'S DAY AT  HARMONY HALL  There will be a Valentine's  Day dance at Harmony Hall on  February 14, a Saturday.

EAGLES  A Roberts Creek resident  found two eagles and attendant  gulls fluttering about a salmon  lying on his lawn.  The salmon, somewhat decomposed, weighed on the  heavy side of 10 pounds, he  thought. How the salmon got  there is a puzzle. Did the eagles,  both juvenile, drag the salmon  from the beach where it had  died or perhaps catch it  themselves in the salt chuck?  Observers tell me that they  have on occasion seen eagles  catch live fish. George Smith,  who assisted in the recent bird  count on the coast, quoted the  following from a Provincial  Museum publication by Frank  L. Beebe, "The bald eagle can  leave its scavenging and prac  tical beachcombing to hunt as a  predator. It is adept at catching  herring and even salmon up to  three kilograms.  "The eagle doesn't dive but  glides in on its prey which it  tows and floats to shore. It will  often rest a moment on the  water while engaged in this activity."  MISCELLANEOUS  Some odds and ends: Have  you got used to the yield sign at  Winn and South Fletcher where  there used to be a stop sign?  And   the   VW   beetle,   the  "starter" car for the young, is  said to be soon available again.  An import from Brazil.  COLD TURKEY  "Turkey". The word has a  range of meanings that the  changing fashions of slang have  assigned to it. And cold turkey  is one phrase that has four  meanings that the Dictionary of  American Slang lists.  One of these, the act of being  suddenly and completely deprived of narcotics as in a cure,  seems to be the one to apply to  January 21, "Cold Turkey  Day".  In the discomfort, and even  the agony, of quitting the use of  tobacco, the consolation of better health may seem no consolation.  Of the many organizations  who support this pledge day in  our community, the Canadian  Cancer Society says, "The purpose of this event is to focus the  public's attention on the  hazards of smoking and to  motivate smokers to quit."  The Society gives these tips:  list all your reasons for quitting;  buy only one pack at a time;  keep some "munchy" items  handy to occupy your hands  and etc. and ask someone to  stand by you to help you  through; prepare a diet and an  exercise plan beforehand.  I'll be thinking of you and  wishing you well.  Egmont News  Watch speed on 101  by Ann Cook  All is quiet on the Egmont  front.

The little car I drive has "all-  weather tires", I wonder if Constable Mueller, who gave me a  speeding ticket, will slap my  hands for thinking "all-  weather" means snow also.  Do you drive the speed limit?  Ever since Constable Mueller  stopped me I have really paid  attention to those kilometre  signs. Did you know, from  downtown Egmont to the Gulf  station at Kleindale, there at 16  changes in the speed limit signs  ranging from 30 kilometres to  only one 80 kilometre sign. Six  zones are 50 kilometres and only four zones are 60.  Do we need more signs? Did  you see the police car checking  us on Misery Mile? Did you  know the speed limit there? I  didn't. I made a point of checking it out. Going north on 101,  the speed limit sign is at Frances  Road and 101, it says 60 kilometres. Going south, the last 60  kilometre sign is between the  golf course and the high school.  I think a driver just takes a look  at that long hill and figures its  an 80 kilometre zone. I have  been asking and no one knew  the speed limit is 60. It is isn't it,  Constable Mueller? Could we  please have a sign there to remind us? I knows, but I forgets.

When consideration is given  to the number of seniors in our  area, and the fact there is no age  limit to become a member, and  that we had over 800 last year,  this should not be an impossibility.  Just remember you 50 and 60  year olds, your turn is coming  and you should be, at this early  date, paving the way for your  eventual retirement with a  strong organization to belong  to. Even if you are unable to attend at the present time, we  need your membership support  now.  Remember the hassle last  year with regard to de-indexing  senior's pensions? It's interesting to note in the National  Pensioners and Senior Citizens'  News this issue, that these people, who are incidentally our affiliates, and consequently our  voice in Ottawa, were requested  by Michael Wilson, Minister of  Finance, to sit down with him  and discuss some of the problems of Canadian seniors  PRIOR to the budget. This is a  little change from the previous  arbitrary decision-making of  that ministry.  Incidentally, a brief was  presented, which was compiled  from the 86 resolutions to the  federal government which originated at their convention in  Lethbridge, Alberta last fall.  The National Pensioners and  Senior Citizens Federation has  done an excellent job for all  seniors, and they certainly  deserve more support from us  than they are getting at the present time. They are based in  Toronto. Membership is $3 per  year and a subscription to their  quarterly newsletter is an additional $3 per year. That's not  really too much to pay for the  representation in Ottawa we  receive from them. Further  details (to the best of my  abilities), are available on request.  President Gerry had his baptism of fire on January 6 at the  first executive meeting of 1987.

Coast News, January 19,1987  rv---  The use of hydraulics and sling facilitate the loading of awkward or  heavy gear. The fishing vessel, La Porsche, along side Gibsons  dock, makes ready for the fishing season. ���Kent Sheridan phof-  Local fish company  expands operation  Growth in a local fishing  business has created some jobs.  : R & B and La Porsche Fishing  : Company have purchased the  I old Jackson Brothers' Logging  ; maintenance shop at Wilson  ; Creek.  i "We will try to do all of our  ��� own maintenance here on the  ; coast," says Ray Keelan, who is  : part owner of the expanding  business.  "We bought the building  around the end of last October  and have been renovating since  mid-December."  The facility now has a  machine shop, with two lathes,  an equipment parts room and  an office which will service the  fishing vessels Ocean Pearl and  La Porsche.  With their self-loading flat  deck truck, pumps, winches,  drums, auxiliary and main  engines can be taken to Wilson  Creek to be repaired or completely over-hauled. Most of  this work used to be done in  Vancouver.  The    fishing    company  employs 25 to 30 men and,  along with the ships' crews for  both vessels, Mr. Kellan and his  partner now provide jobs for a  carpenter, heavy duty mechanic  and machinist.  Skipper Ray Keelan is preparing the La Porsche for sea  work. "We plan to leave Gibsons wharf on January 18. Our  destination will be the Sea  Mountains, approximately 200  miles west of Vancouver  Island."  The La Porsche will be  harvesting sablefish (black cod),  utilizing up to 74 traps on a particular 'set', and is capable of  packing 60 tons of fish in her  holds.  "The bulk of our product is  sold directly to Japan through  our own marketing agency,  which is based in Vancouver,"  explained Mr. Keelan.  On board this trip will be one  or two biologists, representing  the Ministry of Fisheries. They  will be inspecting various fish  species for disease, parasites  and age.  ';*.  Playground violence  in local school  A delegation of parents from  Gibsons Elementary School told  trustees at last week's school  board meeting of "excessive  roughness and aggression" on  the school playground.  Hans Penner elaborated on  his concerns which he had expressed in a letter to the board.  Since he and his wife have  started questioning other  parents, he said that in addition  to the punching, hitting and  kicking, of which he was  already aware, he had now  learned about blackmail and  gangs forming in the playground.  Another parent, Susan  Girard, told the meeting that  Grade 1, 2 and 3 students had  been caught smoking and that  children are afraid to go to  school.  One woman described her experience as a playground supervisor at the school when she was  substituting, and claimed that  some of the fighting was so  violent that she was afraid to  break-up a fight.  The mother of one young  child said her son's wrist had  been sprained in a scuffle when  an older student tried to extort  $4 from him. However, when  questioned by trustee Doris  Fuller, she said that she hadn't  reported it to the school.  School principal, Colleen  Elson told the Coast News that  apart from the Penners, none of  the parents at the meeting had  brought the incidences to her attention and she denied that Gibsons has an excessive amount of  violence on the playground.  "I do not feel that there is  any more problem here than  there is on any other school  ground anywhere else," she  stated emphatically.  The board instructed superintendent Art Holmes to investigate the level of supervision  on all the playgrounds in the  school district and bring back  his observations and recommendations.  ay it safe  The convenience of electricity  is taken for granted but a casual  attitude toward its potential  hazard is dangerous.  "People should be careful  when using any electrical appliance in or around the home,"  says B.C. Hydro District  Manager in Sechelt, Wayne  Turner.

He was happily poking  and prodding at the dear dead crustacean when whap! He lifted it in the  air and splat! "Whatever was that?" I yelped. "That's what he told me  to do," said he, "Give it a good shake and the innards'll just drop  out." "Maybe at a dock," I squawked, "but not in my nice clean kitchen!" He raised his eyebrows. "Well, sort of clean," I mumbled, but  I was blowed if I was going to let it get any worse. I cursed about the  person who'd caught the crab and his "good ideas" and then we compromised. He plunged the live crabs into the pot and I dealt, in my most  non-splashy way, with the innards. He was certainly worth it, talk  about scrumptious!

Coast News, January 19,1987  "N  "Pair Chieftain o' the Puddin' Race," the haggis is piped into Gibsons Legion's Robbie Burns Dinner by Ian Buchanan, and proudly  borne bv John Wilson. ���Fran Burnside photo  hythms off Life  Aquarian mentality  by Penny Fuller  It seems rather peculiar that  Aquarius, the water bearer,  which is represented by two  wavy lines that definitely look  like a hieroglyph for water, is  categorized as a fixed air sign.  On top of that, there are two  planets that rule this sign ���  Uranus, your friendly  neighbourhood revolutionary,  and Saturn your by-the-book  and what-will-the-neighbours-  say type. No wonder Aquarians  feel "out of synch" a lot of the  time. It would take a zen master  to find the balance point of  these influences.  If you have sun in Aquarius,  (born between January 20 and  February 19) you're an intellectual. That doesn't mean that all  of you have university degrees  or that you even passed Grade  4. But everything in your reality  ��� your concept of self, your  relationship to others and the  world, everything ��� is Filtered  through a mental process.  Even your emotional reactions are the result of a thought  process, so you sometimes appear to be cold. But you're not.  You just tend to see things on a  world scale. Your energies and  emotions tend to be focussed on  the problems of the planet  rather than the latest office  crisis.  This humanitarian perspective has resulted in major contributions by Aquarians to the  human race. Seventy-five per  cent of the people in the  American Hall of Fame are  Aquarians.  The eccentricities of Uranus  are manifested by the people  with this sun sign. Here are the  geniuses.   You   may   not   be  GIBSONS  LEGION  Branch #109  EBONY & IVORY  Keyboard, singer -  Popular Music  Fri. & Sat.

Unless  you marry and hang around  with other Aquarians, you may  spend a lot of your life feeling  like you're the odd man out.  The "causes" that you focus  your energy on, will make people either love you or totally reject you, but that isn't intimacy.  While I make it a general rule  never to suggest that one sign  should pair up with another  (relationships depend on a lot  more than sun signs) in this case  I make an exception. If you can  cultivate a few close relationships with other Aquarians, it  will alleviate some of the sensation that you've landed on the  wrong planet.  The fact that you are a "fixed  air sign" simply means that you  can be' pretty stubborn about  your ideas once you've formulated a theory/That sureness  of purpose is an effective tool  when you're trying to convince  a doubting world. But it can  also be a trap that inhibits your  growth.  Before you make up your  mind that such and such is so,  remember that each human being is made up of mind, body  and soul (including you).  Theories are only a mental process and the mortal self cannot  be squeezed into anything so  one-dimensional. People will  react with different emotions no  matter how illogical they may  be. The world simply doesn't  operate on "shoulds".  So never forget "human-  ness" when you develop your  plans for humanity or for  yourself. If you want to reach  your full potential, you will  have to nurture your body,  emotions and spiritual side as  well as your mind. If you don't,  you may be very logical, but  what does that have to do with  the world you live in?  Pages frdm^a Litertog  by Peter Trower  In  the cab  of the pusher,  engineer Bill Osborne, urged by  Smoky Clapperton, throws his  own air brakes on full. But the  weight   of  the   speeding   cars  ahead is far too great for this to  be more than a token gesture.  The   pusher   continues  to   be  dragged along helplessly in the  wake of the lead train. "She's  gone!" shouts Smoky Clapperton.  "We've got to uncouple  now or we're all dead ducks!"  "I'll have a shot at it," says  fireman,   Bob   Barwick.   He  grabs up a steel bar, climbs out  on  the  swaying  catwalk  and  works his way along the side of  the engine to the cowcatcher. It  is a highly dangerous manoeuvre. The runaway is already hitting 60 miles per hour and constantly accelerating.  Clinging between the cowcatcher and the forward caboose,  Barwick   disconnects   the   air  brakes and, holding on by one  hand,   attempts   to   free   the  coupling pin. His task seems  hopeless, the pin is locked tighty  as a rivet by the tension. Barwick bangs away at it to no  avail. He is about to give up  when the train careens around a  bend, throwing a few inches of  slack. The coupling loosens for  an instant and the pin pops free.  The caboose and the pusher  part company with a decisive  clang. Bill Osborne throws his  emergency brakes and within  half a mile, is able to bring the  pusher and its 10 cars to a halt.  The rest of the train is not so  lucky. It goes roaring madly on  down the Coquihalla Hill. Pat  Quinn and the others are still  wrestling with the hand brakes.  Like desperate acrobats, they  stumble along the tops of the  cars, clutching their clubs. More  than half the brakes have been  thrown now but it is becoming  frighteningly apparent that the  trainmen's  efforts  are  all  in  vain. The runaway freight has  already picked up too much  momentum. Like a great, segmented   bobsled,   it   thunders  down the steep grade, swaying  sickeningly,  the tortured steel  screaming as the locked wheels  scorch along the rails.  Somehow the maverick  freight clings to the tracks as it  hammers past Portia through a  series  of sharp  curves.   It  is  travelling at too great a speed  now for anyone to jump. Bob  Marks, alone in his cab, clings  to his throttle as though it still  had meaning, mutters a half  formed prayer and watches the  trees and rock faces blur by. He  glances at the speedometer and  shudders. They are topping 60  miles per hour now and still  picking up speed. How much  longer can she stay on the steel?  For those on top of the train,  the situation is even more terrifying. The crew and the white  faced fruit pickers alike cling  like limpets to the wildly lurching   cars,   battered   by   the  rushing wind; half deafened by  the noise. Near the centre of the  train, Jack Quinn and Mickey  Stringer crouch together. They  have given up on the brakes and  are simply riding it out with the  rest.   "Goddammit,  Mickey!"  shouts Quinn over the uproar,  "we're going to crash!"  Fireman, Ray Letts has also  abandoned the futile brake setting and is clinging to a ladder  on the bank side of one of the  forward cars. As the train free  wheels crazily around yet  another tight curve, the boxcar  gives a violent shudder, breaking his grip. Letts is flung free  like a rag doll and, arms and  legs flailing helplessly, slams into the bank. Fortunately for the  young fireman, he impacts on a  sandy shoulder and is only  slightly bruised. As Letts lies  there half dazed, the rest of the  train goes pumping by, shaking  like a palsied dragon.  The other reluctant riders go  plunging on down the merciless  grade, their shouts and cries lost  in the cacophonous banshee  squeal of friction stressed metal.  Like a railroadman's worst  nightmare come true, the rogue  train goes galloping on towards  the Jessica siding.  At the Jessica way station,  Tony Rascalla, a section  foreman, hears the runaway  coming. He thinks at first it is  only the sound of the headsaw  from a nearby mill. But the  noise grows louder and louder.  Then the runaway explodes into  view around a curve and  Rascalla knows the worst.  "I never saw a train going so  fast in my life before," he will  recall later. "Mr. Marks the  engineer was standing up on the  coat car of the tender as the  Anne Cameron reads  works at Arts Centre  She is a screen-writer, a  novelist, a poet and a writer of  tales for children. At her very  best Anne Cameron is a real  Westcoaster, an uncompromising feminist and a brilliant re-  counter of Northwest Coast In-  dian mythology. Anne  Cameron will be reading from  her works on Friday, January  23 at 8 pm in the Arts Centre in  Sechelt. Everyone is welcome.  The reading is free, thanks to  the sponsorship of the Canada  Council.  Anne Cameron was born and  raised in Nanaimo where in turn  she raised a family and wrote  under the name of Cam Hubert.  At the Arts Centre  Winter films start  Pacific Cinemateque's  Winter Films on Tour series  begins Wednesday, January 21  with Fellini's 1983 film And The  Ship Sails On.  Fellini's dazzling visual style  is full of unexpected surprises,  but the film divided the critics.  MORE THAN EVER,  DISABLED  PEOPLE  NEED YOUR  SUPPORT  Some found this parable about  the collapse of the aristocracy in  the First World War to be mundane dramatically. Others praised Fellini's interweaving of the  egocentric splendor of the  times.  A memorial cruise in honor  of a deceased diva is interrupted  by a motley bunch of Serbian  refugees, some of whom may be  political rabble rousers. Smooth  sailing for Fellini lovers.  The film is at the Arts Centre,  Wednesday, January 21 at 8  pm. Admission is $3.50 for  adults, $2.50 for seniors and  students.  Her first work to receive public  attention was a stage adaptation  of Windigo which led to the formation of Tillicum, the first  native theatre group in Canada.  Her television script,  Dreamspeaker, directed by  Claude Jutra, won seven Canadian film awards as well as the  International Symposium on  Mental and Emotional Health  Award. Published as a novel  Dreamspeaker won the Gibson  Award for Literature in 1979.  Since that time Cameron has  gone from strength to strength  as a screen-writer as well as a  novelist.  Her most recent work is  Dzelarhons: Mythology of the  Northwest Coast, a sharing of  the tales she heard from an old  Indian woman when Cameron  was a child. In a collection ranging from humourous tales of the  Raven, the trickster and glutton, to the Salish myth of creation, Cameron's haunting and  witty style draws the reader into  a world of magic.

I  could see he wanted to warn any  trains that might be up ahead. I  was pretty excited but I got on  the phone."  The train pounded through  Jessica with flames gouting  from the brakeshoes, an earth-  bond meteor rushing to absolute disaster. Just past the station, a coupling gives way under  the stress. Three coal cars and  the caboose break free, topple  sideways and fly into a water  tank, smashing it to matchwood. The rest of the train  reels drunkenly on. It is travelling at almost two miles a minute  now and barely holding the  rails. Bob Marks, Jack Quinn  and the other doomed men and  boys can only wait numbly for  the inevitable.

After opening the concert  with a 16th century motet, Dr.  James Fankauser turned to the  audience visibly surprised and  delighted that "such a large  number of people should come  to hear us."  He then turned the podium  over to fourth year student,  Karen Olynik, who conducted  the devotional motet, Ador-  amus te, Christe. This piece led  the audience through long sustained lyric lines, showing the  disciplined control of the choir  but also allowing the feeling of  humility to permeate the meaning of the music and text.  To contrast the meditative  piece, Dr. Fankhauser followed  it with a light glorifying one,  This is the day the Lord has  made; Let us rejoice and be glad  in it.  To complete the first half of  the program, the University  Singers sang six sections of JS  Bach's motet, Jesu Meine  Freude. This showed excellent  artistic arid musical mastery  evoking the expressed emotions  of the text. After stating the  basic chorale theme in the first  movement with solid legato  line, the Singers took the audience to the sudden changing  dynamics and clean abrupt  pauses of the second movement  entitled, It is not enough.  We all felt the emotion indicative of this powerful and  meaningful work. The Singers  continued  to  delight  the  audience with the variety of singing through natural breathing  points  and  suspending  us  in  feelings of tension and release.  At intermission, the audience  was exhuberant. "They are such  an attractive looking group, the  colours are just gorgeous." One  music lover said that it was  "Heaven". Perfect angels with  perfect voices.  The precision,  control   and   tonal   accuracy  transmitted emotion felt by all.  The second half of the performance opened with Darius  Milhaud's 1937 piece, Babylone  from Les Deux Cites, with Kelly  Crook and Craig Morash singing solos. This bold and richly  textured piece/was followed by  F. Poulenc's 1952, O Magnum  Mysterium,   a  highly  magical  piece   evoking   a   feeling   of  mystery in the listener.  Verdi's Pater Noster was  "special" to Dr. Fankhauser  because he felt that no one has  been able to set The Lord's  Prayer in the choral repertoire  adequate "to capture its  greatness". Verdi's setting was  "a bit long-winded" but to the  audience it was a powerful  musical presentation.  To lighten up, Dr. Fankhauser had the University  Singers perform the French  Choruses from Leonard Bernstein's The Lark, a play adapted  The Coast's Finest Dining,  On the Be^cti, bayis. Bay  ������..".'������'������.���'������:''8e.5-7285v',' ������'���'���������  by Lillian Hellman from the  original French version. Karen  Olynik's rich mezzo voice sang  a sustained line while the chorus  sang a dancy "la la la". Carole  Weseen brightened up the music  even more with her high  soprano solo. Karen joined her  in the second movement. Finally, in the third movement, the  audience was visibly giggling  with the whistling finale and the  conductor's playful tiptoe off to  the edge of the stage.  Folksongs and Spirituals are  always fitting choral presentations and the University Singers  did not fail to do great justice to  their   chosen   pieces.   Maggie  Brockington sang the opening  and closing verse of I wonder as  I wander, with excellent control  while Karen Olynik conducted.  One of the most lovely  moments in the concert was  when you could hear nary a  breath during Nobody Knows  the Trouble I've Seen. The  breathy, plaintive deep vocal  production created melancholic  feelings throughout the theatre.  Thus, we laughed and danced  and cried and were made humble; all in the expanse of two  short hours. A friend, on being'  told how lovely she looked,  replied, "Well, who wouldn't  look great after hearing what I  just heard."  Will Hester and Alma get the  paperboy to stay for tea?  Who put the loaches in the  Emperor's pool?  What is the Kisiware palstave, anyway?  These are just some of the  questions that get answered  -and asked! - in an evening of  short play sketches being  presented by Betty Keller and  the Driftwood Players on  Thursday, Friday and Saturday  this week in Roberts Creek  Hall.  With twists and plots ranging  from the unusual to the unexpected, these short sketches will  make you both laugh and cry,  and occasionally scratch your  head. You've probably met  people like this before, but  never from quite this angle!  The evening is divided into  three sections. Part I, titled "By  fait means or foul..." features  the playlets "Playing with  Fire", "Sophie" and  "Bridgework".  Part 11, called "Alone, alone,  all, all alone..." is composed of  "The Tea Party", "Trick  Doors" and "One-Celled  Animal".  Part III, sub-titled "Confession is good for the soul..."  features "Winnifred and  Grace", "Holed-Up" and  "Dominic and Sadie". All in  all, as eclectic and eccentric a  bunch of people as you'd ever  want to meet!  Taking varied roles in the  sketches are Sandie Decker, Ken  Collins, Nest Lewis, Matthew  Austin, Arline Collins, Terry  Weatherill and Fran Burnside.  Curtain   time  is  8  pm   on  January 22, 23 and 24, and  tickets are available at usual  outlets and at the door. Admission is $5 for adults, $3.50 for  students.

This Week's  Special  CHICKEN  PARMESAN  Tender chicken breast  topped with mozzarella  cheese & tomato sauce  '*>?������  Your guide to  the finest in  area dining  DINING GUIDE  A listing of  restaurants  and pubs  *7oa<tt Off  t6e (fai4t  It was another wet, miserable night whcii we stumbled out  of the rain into the warm brightness of Pronto's last Saturday. Although it's a large restaurant, it's laid out in such a  way that you feel cozy, without being crowded, wherever you  sit.  The most difficult part of the evening came when the  waitress brought the menus. The wide variety of dishes offered was amazing.  Beef Cannelloni and Chicken Cacciatore were the dinner  specials, and the selection included everything from pork  chops and spare ribs to seafood and steaks. For those with a  yen for Greek food, souvlaki was offered and of course, Pronto's makes a long list of pizzas.  I was out for pizza, but my husband balked when he saw  the range of other possibilities. So I ordered a small pizza for  myself and he decided to try the Chicken Cacciatore, which  came with a choice of soup or salad and garlic bread.  As we waited for our order, we watched the owner talking  and exchanging joking banter with various customers. It  completed the friendly atmosphere of the place, causing even  those of us not involved to chuckle.  Then the generous helpings of food arrived, we settled into  some serious eating. The steaming dish of cacciatore brought  appreciative murmers from the other side of the table as I  devoted myself to my favourite pastime, devouring pizza.  Unfortunately, even the most dedicated pizza addict has  her limits, and I couldn't possibly eat every delicious piece  myself, but the waitress was kind enough to offer a "doggy  bag" for the rest.  I noticed that my partner had no such problem. In spite of  the large portion, he managed to clean the dish of the last  traces of sauce and chicken.  Next time a group of us can't agree on what we want for  dinner, we'll head for Pronto's. Then everyone can win the  argument and I'll get more fabulous pizza.

They received gifts and  then we had a potluck dinner  and everything was wonderful.  We have two sets of results  and both are for our younger  swimmers. The first set of  results is from the meet held at  White Rock, hosted by the  Pacific Sea wolves Swim Club.  It was a first ever meet and our  swimmers did an excellent job.  The swam their little hearts out  and the results sure show it.  We have to give these little  people a lot of credit because it  can be awfully scary swimming  for the first time in competition  with dozens of other kids in  front of a lot of onlookers, but  they did it. Good going kids! So  on with the show.  GIRLS 7/8 YEARS OLD  NAME EVENT ���   TIME   PLACE  M. Rivers 25m BF 26.3 2nd  25m B 24.8 1st  25m BS 33.5 6th  25m FS 24.6 3rd  50m B 59.5 2nd  K.

Western Canadian boxing  Coast News, January 19,1987  13.  Mark Jaeger, of the Sunshine  Coast, drew a bye into the finals  of the 165 pound class of the  Western Canadian and Invitational Boxing Championships in  Saskatoon last week.  Once there, he was a convincing winner, stopping Darcy  Smith of Manitoba in the second round of their bout.  Jaeger's Western Canadian title  marked his ninth consecutive  ring victory.  Fighting in the 139 pound  division, Tony Duffy wasted no  time in disposing of Howard  Smith of Saskatchewan at the  58 second mark of the first  round of his first bout.  In the finals of his division,  Duffy met a rough customer in  Cosy Stephens of Alberta, who  had advanced to the finals by  defeating the Manitoba boxer.  Duffy weathered Stephens'  rough and aggressive tactics in  the first half of the first round  and came back with a series of  by the B.C. team, and what  followed was unanimously  agreed to be the best bout of the  championships.  The older and more experienced American won the  first two rounds of the three-  round match, scoring 20 points  to Duffy's 19 in both rounds.  The action was marked by Duffy scientifically avoiding  Foster's thunderous right hand  and making good use of his left  jab. The American scored  enough to take the rounds in the  opinion of the judges.  Duffy gave it all he had in the  third round, fighting what his  Local  eagle  count  by Vince Bracewell  Last year's midwinter bald  eagle count revealed that B.C.  has a larger wintering population of these beautiful birds  than do any of the southern 48  states in the USA.  Despite the adverse weather  conditions on last year's count  day, a total of 1756 bald eagles :.  were recorded in southwestern  B.C.  This year's count took place  last Sunday, January 11.  The purpose of the bald eagle  survey is to try and determine  the size of B.C.'s wintering bald  eagle population.  The count is jointly sponsored by World Wildlife Fund -  Canada, and by the Ministry of  Environment and Parks -Lower  Mainland Region (Bird and  Non-game Management).  This project is coordinated by  wildlife biologist, Dave Dunbar  and Anthea Farr.  The Sunshine Coast from  Langdale to Egmont was  covered by local volunteers  Soleigh Harrison, Murray  Mark, Tony Greenfield, Bill  Wishlow, Sean Vanstrepen, Ian  Corrance and Vince Bracewell,  coordinator.  The total for this area was 66  birds.  Diving  courses  The Diving Locker on West  4th Ave. in Vancouver is  delighted to announce the opening of a second Diving Locker  location. As of January 1, 1987,  the Diving Locker in Sechelt  will be in operation. The Sunshine Coast is well known for  its good diving and now for the  first time there will be a full service diving centre at the corner  of Wharf and Dolphin streets,  in the heart of Sechelt.  Full certification courses will  be starting on a regular basis.  And of course, air, rentals, service and sales will be available  for all those certified divers on  the Sunshine Coast.  The Sea Quester 1, oitr 21 ft.

WANTED  Used Furniture  and What Have You  We buy Beer Bottles  886-2812  coach considered the best round  of his career to take the round  20-19, not enough to overturn  the American's earlier narrow  lead. The final score was 60-59  for Foster.  The bout was voted the tournament's best and Foster went  south with the award for the  tournament's best boxer,  devastating body blows in the  second round before knocking  his opponent to the canvas with  a well-timed left hook, whereupon the referee stopped the  fight to prevent injury to  Stephens.  Watching Duffy in action in  the intermediate 139 pound  class was the experienced  American fighter in the senior  division of the same weight  group, Todd Foster of Montana. Foster was uncontested in  the tournament and had just  returned from a USA-USSR  tournament in the Soviet  Union. His impressive 157  amateur victories against 15  losses often makes opponents  lcary of tangling with the  American who deferred a pro-  fessinal career until after the  1988 Olympics in Korea.  After watching Duffy dispose  of Cosy Stephens, Foster issued  a challenge to the intermediate  champion which was accepted  CARPENTIER & BELLAMY  Barristers & Solicitors  R.

A brief discussion ensued,  however, when the board was  asked to approve a monthly expense allowance of $150 per day  to a maximum of four days per  month for the chairman of the  EDC.  Gordon Wilson told the  board that he has been going  over the commission's books  for past years and that more  checks and balances are needed.  -^,- .-.^  ''m  Church  Services  THE UNITED CHURCH  OF CANADA  Sunday Worship Services  GIBSONS  Glassford Road 11:15am  Sunday School 11:00 am  ST.

Chairman Jim Gurney agreed  that there have been serious  problems in the past, but "that  was because money was being  spent without the commission's  knowledge and receipts weren't  kept."  The board finally agreed to  approve the per diem, but will  request that the commission  keep them informed about expenditures on a monthly basis.  Board  queries  projects  The Sunshine Coast Regional  Hospital Board received a letter  at last Thursday's meeting from  the Hospital Planning and Construction branch of the Ministry  of Health in which two minor  capital projects were approved  for grants.  However, the board wants  more information before they  claim the money. The projects  which were approved were roof  repairs and waterline replacement at a total estimated cost of  $20,562.  The provincial government  will contribute $12,337 and the  district is expected to come up  with the rest.  Chairman Jim Gurney questioned both the estimated costs  of the projects and why they  didnt' come out of the maintenance budget of the hospital.  The board agreed to seek  more information before they  make any decision.  Police  news  GIBSONS RCMP  A Port Mellon resident was  charged with driving impaired  on Highway 101 near Gibsons  on January 14.

GIBSONS PENTECOSTAL CHURCH  40TH ANNIVERSARY  On January the 19th, 1947 Rev. Frances Clemo  conducted the first service ofCibsons Pentecostal  Church. She was joined later, to co-pastor, by  jean Pennoyer.  All former members and Sunday School Alumni  are warmly invited to an anniversary service on  January the 25th at 11:00 am. There will be an  anniversary cake.  Gibsons Pentecostal Church - 730 School Road 886-7107  by Montague Royal  Vancouver's 1986 Centennial  Celebrations were somewhat  upstaged by the spectacular  goings-on at EXPO. Many of  the envisioned birthday projects  never got off the ground. One  that did was the subsidized  publication of several themed  books dealing with Vancouver's  past. The best of these will be  dealt with at length in future  columns. A latecomer to the list  but perhaps the most original  and ultimately useful is Alan  Twigg's Vancouver and Its  Writers (Harbour).  Well-known writer and interviewer Twigg rummaged  through many obscure corners  to come up with some of the  more arcane pieces of information in this book. He has arranged the volume in the form  of a directory and the various  writers are categorized under  "literary landmarks" with  which they were associated.  These "landmarks" range from  private addresses to certain  favoured pubs, hotels and  cafes. This could prove confusing to someone unacquainted  with Vancouver but Twigg has  included an index that lists the  writers alphabetically.  The book's cover features the  famous photograph of Malcolm  Lowry at his Dollarton retreat  with a book in one hand and a  twenty-sixer of Bols gin in the  other. Lowry, who wrote the  final draft of Under The  Volcano at his North Shore  squatter's shack, is undoubtedly  the most renowned author to  ever make his home in this area  and Twigg devotes four pages to  his turbulent career.  Lowry was by no means the  only well-known writer to ply  his craft in the Vancouver area.  Many other authors of note  worked here at one time and  another, mostly early in their  careers, before fame and the  traditional talent-drain, siphoned them off to Toronto. Some  of these writers include: Margaret Laurence; Earle Birney;  Alice Monroe; Margaret At-  wood and Timothy Findley.  (Although a large number of  well-known poets also made, or  still make, their home in the city, Twigg has chosen to concentrate on prose writers.) But  most of the authors in this collection are far from household  names.  It is these lesser-known and  virtually-forgotten writers that  make Twigg's book so  fascinating. Their names live  again after decades of neglect.  Case in point: Morely  Roberts (1857-1942). Roberts, a  transplanted Englishman,  published the first authentic  Vancouver novel in 1892. Entitled The Mate of the Vancouver, it is essentially a romantic melodrama. Roberts went on  to write many books of greater  literary merit, including a much  better book about sawmilling in  Vancouver, The Prey of the  Strongest, published in 1906.  Case in point: Isabel Ec-  clestone Mackay (1875-1928).  Mrs. Mackay moved to Vancouver from Ontario in 1909  and became an important figure  on the local literary scene, such  as it was. In her lifetime, she  was best known as a poet and  published several books of  Pauline Johnson-type verse.  Mrs. Mackay also authored  several fine novels with a local  setting, however, such as The  House of Windows (1912) and  Drop off your  COAST NEWS  CLASSIFIEDS  at  Pacifica Pharmacy #2  in Pender Harbour  until noon Saturday  "A Friendly People Place"  these books have stood the test  of time much better than her  rather stilted poetry.  Case   in   point:   Alexander  Maitland Stephen (1888-1942).  A.M.   Stephen   was   a   poet,  novelist and social activist who  deserves to be better remembered. He published several poetry  collections and two novels: The  Kingdom of the Sun - a historical romance about white contact with the Haidas in Eliza  bethan times and The Gleaming  Archway - a contemporary  (1929) novel about a disaffected  journalist that uses such locales  as Grouse Mountain and Capilano Canyon.  Twigg has done an admirable  job in rescuing these and other  neglected writers from literary  oblivion. His book will stand as  an important reference work  and would make a worthy addition to anyone's library.

Honourable Joe Clark  Minister of External Affairs  House of Commons  Ottawa, Ontario, K1A OGA  Dear Mr. Clark,  I have recently learned of the  terrible situation which presently exists in Guatemala. I wondered why the Canadian people  are not as appalled and outraged by such a state of affairs as I  am until 1 realized how very little we hear of Guatemala in the  regular media.  Please send me your appraisal of conditions in  Guatemala; of the cultural and  physical genocide of the Mayan  Indian peasant (which comprises some 60 per cent of the  population); of the appalling  human and civil rights violations and of the role that we, as  enormously privileged Canadians, can play in helping these  people.  I know that the Canadian  government has cut off bilateral  aid to Guatemala since 1981. I  would like your assurance that  this moratorium will not be  lifted until you are absolutely  positive that the present situation has been rectified and that  the Guatemalan people are truly  safe from the oppression and  violence they are suffering.  Since there are some 200,000  refugees from Guatemala, I  would also ask that you urge  your government to increase aid  for the refugee programs in  Mexico, (where living conditions , are atrocious) and in  Canada as well.  Is it possible that Canada  could initiate a campaign of  (  28.  Work Wanted  Drywall, workmanship  guaranteed.

It  seems to me that the suffering  of Guatemalans is every bit as  severe and inconscionable as  that of black South Africans  and yet there is no widespread  outrage in the world and little  media attention is paid to their  plight.  No Commonwealth governments are meeting to plan  strategies to force a return to  civilian and civilized democracy  in Guatemala. Why not? I fear  that US interests in Central  America have immobilized the  will of other nations to act.  Guatemala  Editor,  I was distressed to learn  through a slide show on  Guatemala at the Arts Centre  January 7, that my pleasant illusion of Guatemala as a sunny  and peaceful extension of Mexico was hideously far from the  truth.  I wonder if I am alone in my  ignorance.  I knew about Nicaragua, El  Salvador, and Honduras but for  some reason I thought  Guatemala was okay. I hope  that others have raised this issue  with Mr. Clark, Foreign Affairs  Minister, and urge those who  haven't to write now.  1 believe your paper can help  by providing informative articles on these kinds of world  problems more frequently. Certainly our local central  American support group could  supply the information.  Lynn Chapman  While I recognize there are  many complexities involved, I  believe that Canada, as a "middle power" and a nation of conscience and goodwill, has an important role to play as an  unself-interested defender of  oppressed peoples.  I also believe that if the Canadian people were informed  about Guatemala you would  have their wholehearted support  for any initiatives you may  undertake to restore justice and  freedom in that country.  I await your response to the  points I have raised and the information you can provide me.

DEVLIN  Director  886-9551  Parents, students and staff at  Chatelech Secondary School  each made a presentation supporting the school board's efforts to acquire capital funding  for the expansion at Chatelech  when the board of school trustees met at Sechelt Elementary  School last Tuesday. The expansion was rated as a top  priority by the board in its application to the Ministry of  Education for capital funds.  However, the screening committee at the ministry reduced  the classification to medium  priority.  The board has sent a letter to  Tony Brummet, Minister of  Education, protesting the  reduction in the priority rating  and at the meeting, received a  document prepared by the staff  at the school from Principal  Brian Butcher, which outlined  the problems in detail.  This was followed by a  representation from the Parent  Advisory Group. Nancy Den-  ham gave members of the board  a copy of a letter that the group  has written to Tony Brummet  pointing out that, "The original  design called for junior high  school students only...", and  listing six specific examples of  over-crowded conditions in the  school.  "As these examples clarify,"  the letter states, "teaching time  is limited by the necessity to  rearrange furniture. The unnecessary disruption and movement interferes with the quality  of learning in the classroom."  Student council president,  Michael Rogers, addressed the  meeting on behalf of the student  body at Chatelech. He asked the  board for "help in obtaining an  area where the students in the  school can get together."  According to Rogers, an accreditation team that was  recently at the school made the  recommendation that, "We implement strategies for fostering  social interaction of the  students." "This is difficult to  do," he says, "jammed between  two rows of lockers."  Speaking with the Coast  News later, Rogers said that the  students had raised $800 so far  to help pay for furnishings, etc.,  if and when the lounge is built.  Chairman Maureen Clayton  told the meeting that she has  recently been informed that, "It  is part of the open government  policy now that this issue is  open for discussion with the  ministry." She assured the  delegation that the board would  be pursuing the matter.  Halfmoon Bay to  get new school  Preparations are going ahead  for the building of a new school  at Halfmoon Bay. At the school  board meeting last week,  trustees agreed to proceed with  choosing an architect for the  project after hearing from a  delegation from the Halfmoon  Bay Parents Group.  Parent group chairman, Liz  Wright, presented a letter to the  trustees which expressed the  concern of parents of the Grade  3 class who want to keep their  children in their community  school, something which is impossible without a new facility.  The district received $125,000  in funds from the government  to proceed with site development and architectural plans  last spring. However, the deed  to the land is still awaiting an  Order-in-Council from the provincial government.  Last fall the board applied  for permission to start doing  perk tests and cutting survey  lines on the proposed school site  and received a letter of tenure  allowing it shortly before  Christmas.  Secretary-Treasurer Roy  Mills, informed the board that  the district has already been approached by a number of architects when the grant was announced last spring and their  names are already on file.  The board will advertise their  intention of hiring an architect  and hope to make a selection by  February 10.

Coast News, January 19,1987  Tomkies bows out  I he Richard Tomkies 'swan  song" appeared to strike a sour  note with some people at last  week's meeting of the Sunshine  Coast Tourism Association  (SCTA).  Tomkies concluded a presentation on an economic strategy  lot the Sunshine Coast with the  announcement that he would be  leaving both the SCTA and the  ; rea. He told the meeting that  his firm has been hired to pro-  r.ioie a here-to-fore "forbidden" province of China and he  would be spending most of his  time out of the country for the  ri'.-xi few years.  Before concluding and taking  questions, Tomkies expressed  his thanks to Jim McDowell  and Allan Crane for their  a.-.sistance in his work.  When questioned by Bryan  owner of Bonniebrook  Rubin,  Lodge, on who was going to be  responsible for the debts created  by the Aqua West fiasco,  Tomkies said "that is not on the  agenda tonight. It has been  dealt with in a letter to the vice-  president and you should direct  your inquiries to him."  Vice-president Ed Traff was  not at the meeting. However,  when contacted later he said  that while Tomkies is president,  he is still in charge of the situation.  Traff told The Coast News,  "We are in negotiation with  Sechelt District Council to purchase the assets of Aqua West.  These have been ongoing for  some time and we should have  an agreement soon."  When asked about elections  for the association, Traff said  that the constitution requires 30  days notice, so a new executive  should be in place within a  month or two.  "A lot of us are hoping for  some re-structuring," he said.  in an interview late last week,  Bryan Rubin expressed concern  about residual bad feelings in  the business community about  past SCTA projects.  "Before we can move forward we have to clean up the  mess that's left," he said.  Rubin admitted that may be  difficult, but he's emphatic that  the problem must be addressed,  and will be consulting a lawyer  to clarify the fiscal liability of  the association and its members.  "I don't know what's happening to the Aqua West debt,  and no one else seems to. The  only one who does is Richard  Tomkies."  Residents organize to  protect Sechelt Inlet  At a meeting held Wednesday, January 14 at Chatelech  Secondary School, a group of  32 residents took the first steps  towards forming a Sechelt Inlet  Environmental Protection  Society and elected a seven  member executive.  Elected were: Chairperson,  Judy Wilson; Secretary, Lynn  Forrest; Treasurer, Paul Murphy; Members at Large, Graham Boyd, Trevor Kirby, Bob  Patrick, and Gerry Kirk.  The meeting adopted a summary of concerns compiled  from an initial meeting of the  group in December. The concerns focused on the potential  impact of the fish farming industry on water quality, on  recreational use of the inlet, and  on the potential harm to the  Sunshine Coast tourism and  recreational industry.  In forming an environmental  protection society the group  identified the rapid expansion  of the fish farming industry in  the inlet as a major concern at  this time but recognized the  need for an ongoing organization to deal with environmental  and recreational issues as they  arise.  The meeting received a letter  from the Sunshine Coast Regional District inviting the  group to be represented on the  district's Foreshore Advisory  Committee which is currently  seeking funding for a comprehensive study of the Sechelt  Inlet foreshore. The group  agreed to send a representative.  Chairperson Judy Wilson informed the meeting that the  Waste Management Branch had  denied the request by several  residents for a public hearing into the application by Aquarius  Seafarms to discharge wastes into the Sechelt Inlet from their  hatchery at Grey Creek.  The meeting received a list of  recommendations arising from  the Gillespie Commission. The  executive will be reviewing the  recommendations as. they apply  to the Sechelt Inlet.  The first meeting of the new  executive will be held next  Thursday, January 22.  Shellfish update  Fisheries Officer Sue Hahn advises that there is a total  closure on all shellfish in the following three areas: Upper Jer-  vis Inlet, north of Foley Head; Blind Bay, south shore of  Hardy Island, Fox Island and north shore of Nelson Island;  and, a small area near Egmont, from Sechelt Rapids to Egmont Point.  The remaining Sunshine Coast areas, including Lasqueti  Island and Texada Island, are open only for oysters and  native and manila littlenecks.  Mussels, butterclams and scallops are closed in all areas.  Cold water temperatures have caused the PSP toxicity levels  to decline slowly. Recent samples taken near Egmont caused  laboratory mice to die in 54 seconds.  0  o  0  0  0  Q  0  O  0  0  Q  Q  Q  0  0  BUY NOW  TIL JUNE  OAC  Eorara  141  1  O.A.C.
