One project, a 30-motel-unit waterfront  tourist facility costing an  estimated $650,000 to $700,000,  has a planned June completion  date to be in time for the summer travel season.  A new land acquisition by the  partner owners of the Dockside  Pharmacy-Bank of Montreal  property at the other end of the  downtown has led to  preliminary work on a two-  phase project which would  ultimately add commercial  space for three stores, offices,  apartments and underground  parking.  Caflisch, Gorman Planning  Consultants of '<}ibsons^ -announced last week that design  and construction documents are  being finalized for the proposed  Ritz Marine Motel. The site at  Gower Point and Dougal Roads  was formerly occupied by the  Ritz Motel which was demolished last year.  The project will include 30  one-bedroom and two-bedroom  units. These will all have light  cooking facilities.  Two buildings of Coastal  Colonial design will have a  swimming pool, hot tub, conference room and possibly a  60-seat restaurant. If the  restaurant is included it is expected jobs will be created for  15 to 20 people. Otherwise there  should be at least 10 new jobs,  said planner Bruce Gorman.  Use of two separate buildings  introduces openings and air to  the project, said Planner Gorman. Almost every part of the  development has a harbour  view.  ���YThejsijehas;^20^ot: sloped  The front three-storey building  has 12 units. The back building  is two storeys with floor space  below ground.  Four top floor rooms of the  back building can open up for  conference or meeting rooms.  No contractor is named yet, but  the building is designed for local  materials and skills, said Gorman, whose firm did the recent  Gibsons development, the  Cedar Plaza.  One of the first things initiated under new Gibsons  Community Plan Bylaw 600,  the whole basis of the tourism  project plan is to keep a fairly  sensitive rapport with a locale  which is one of the most  beautiful in the world. The new  Community Plan creates a very  good environment for this project, said the planning consultant.  Motel project owner Bill  Steen, a longtime local resident,  wants to have the project' completed by June. Having a home  on Keats Island as well as in  Vancouver, he is interested in  the development of the whole  Gibsons  Lower  Village area,  said architect Gorman.  The Lower Village and Harbour area hasn't been given attention before in terms of community planning. Its development won't be of a huge scale,  like downtown Winnipeg for instance, said Gorman.  "We try to find clients who  are sensitive to the area, aware  of what's going on and know  what we're trying to do here in  Gibsons," said the local architect. "We have two clients  now."  The other client is the partnership of Haig Maxwell and  Philip Grafton, owners of  Dockside Pharmacy. This plan  involves two retail store spaces  west of the bank���with office  and apartment space above, all  in phase one.  ;;;��Y: The second phase would involve another retail store space  on the other side of the bank,  leaving a driveway to  underground parking. An en  trance   above   would   reach  above-ground parking.  This second phase would  continue the second-storey office and apartment space above  the parking driveway and the  drug store. A clock tower with  chimes is being considered in  the design.  "We aim at making use of  the typography to best advantage," said Gorman.  Dockside pharmacist Maxwell said the partnership's idea  is to create a little more retail  space at this end of the  downtown in order to draw  more shoppers during hours  when the bank and a restaurant  there are closed. Added commercial life is desireable on  weekends.  s The offices could accommodate lawyer, dentist, accountant, etc. A "comparable roof  line would be created right  across the property.  "We're most anxious to get  going   on   it   by   May,   but  everything isn't in place yet,"  said the pharmacist.  Architect Gorman said, "The  idea is to develop nice visual  concepts that will enhance the  Community Plan. The idea  also, rather than creating a  motel enviroment, is to instead  create a destination resort facility...to bring people up here in  families to stay a week or  several nights for fishing and-  water activities.  "We're working closely with  the town planner. It's taken a   ,  lot   of  work   and   effort   to  develop something that fits the  area.  "With attractions like fishing ;:  charters   we   have  something  more positive and generative for  this whole area. All the long-  available properties in the. area ;.'.  from the Post Office to the:,  Marina   have   recently   been ��  bought   up   by   interested  people," said planning consultant Gorman.  101 bird species counted  A 9 lb., 7 oz. baby, the greatest Christmas present of all, arrived for Cassy Starr and Ian Dixon of Porpoise Bay at St. Mary's Hospital at 10:47 am Christmas Day. Nicholas Johnny Bud Dixon is a brother  for a very pleased Anthony Joseph aged 4. ���Vern Elliott photo  Beautiful %eather and good  turnout of^about 25 people  made the 1938 annual bird  count on the Sunshine Coast a  resounding success. On Saturday, December 17, five teams  spread out over territories on  the Sunshine Coast from West  Sechelt to Port Mellon.  For the first time in the 10  year history of the count,  Mount Elphinstone was included in the area. This may account  for the new record in species  counted - 101 to be exact. The  highest previous total was 92  species counted in 1983.  In addition to the increased  numbers, six new species were  'officially' spotted: earred  grebe, blue grouse, California  gull, saw-whet owl, grey jay and  a Lincoln sparrow. Unofficially, bird watcher Vince Bracewell  reports to have spotted a rare  oriental green finch in a flock of  purple finches. In order to be an  'official' spotting the bird has to  be sighted by several people.  Tony Greenfield, who col  lected the counts from each  team, estimates that about  10,000 were counted this year.  The Sunshine Coast bird  count is one of approximately  1500 counts that occur in North  America. Totals from this area  are submitted to the National  Audubon Society which compiles the statistics and publishes  them each year. In this way the  society keeps track of bird  migration and population patterns.

On Friday, December 23 GVFD members responded to a call for  assistance at a motor vehicle accident on North Road.  However the Jaws were not required.  Thanks of the department go out to all those who supported the campaign to raise the money needed to buy the  Jaws, especially to the Gibsons and District Kinsmen for their  fund raising efforts.  Firefighters busy  David Holland, 50, of Sechelt  says he's glad someone pushed  ahead of him when he was standing in line to buy Lotto 6/49  tickets���otherwise he wouldn't  be a lucky winner of  $113,634.30.  "A man came right up in line  and butted in front of me. He  bought a bunch of (Lotto 6/49  Quick Picks and I was thinking  that those should have been  mine. I was so mad I could have  kicked him���now I could kiss  him," said Holland.  Holland and his wife Donna  were shopping at Capilano Mall  in North Vancouver when they  decided to purchase tickets for  the December 17 Lotto 6/49  draw.  Holland, a mechanic who  works for B.C. Hydro, said  he'll use his windfall to pay off  the mortgage. He will also be  sharing some of the money with  the family and a close friend.  The Hollands have eight  children ranging in ages from 15  to 31 years.  Holland also won an extra $1  by saying 'Yes' to Extra, the  added-on feature to Lotto 6/49.  Holland matched one of the  four, two-digit numbers printed  on his ticket.  A series of calls has kept the  Gibsons Volunteer Fire Department busy this holiday season  with a total of nine calls in the  past week.  Christmas Day had members  out twice, first with a chimney  fire at 2:35 pm at a residence in  Gibsons. Later at 4:18 pm, the  first in a string of three arson  fires in the Gibsons area had  firefighters alerted to a fire set  in the garbage bin at Gibsons  Elementary School.  Boxing day saw two more arson fires in the Gibsons area. At  11:25 am firefighters returned  to extinguish a fire set in the  Gibsons Elementary School garbage can a second time and at  12:38 pm a fire set in the garbage can at the Gibsons Post office had trucks and firefighters  responding there. RCMP were  able to apprehend the 11 year  old male responsible for all  three fires.  December 28 saw firefighters  responding to a car fire at the  Gibsons Legion at 5:45 pm and  a chimney fire at a residence on  South Fletcher at 6:56 pm.  On December 30 two  chimney fires had firefighters  out to Killarney Lane at 12:05  pm and to Elphinstone Avenue  at 11:54 pm.  Gibsons Volunteer Fire  Department would like to  welcome new member Rod  Sharpe to the force: Applications for membership are available at the fire hall or from any  member.  We wish you all a safe and  fire-free New Year.  Happy Sechelt winner of $113,634 in a lottery is David Holland  shown with wife Donna, December 17 at Richmond with the winning cheque.

A  �����*  *!  i  �����'���  5<f  corporate  Sechelt municipality is just coming out of its great  period of restructuring. That period, in the light of history,  undoubtedly will prove to be the greatest ever among all its  local government accomplishments.  Indeed, the Sechelt area has, by some magic of wisdom,  done what only a tiny minority of municipalities in  modern democracies ever manage to do. It has formed a  single local government covering its economic, social and  commuter region!  As a result, Sechelt will prosper, blossom and thrive.  The municipality now has one great duty to itself.  Sechelt needs to organize a municipal corporation which  will efficiently, speedily and effectively carry the locality  forward into the bright future awaiting.  To do this will require a careful combination of political  sense and local government expertise. Sechelt has a new  council which can be politically wise. It needs to acquire  the expertise.  Muddling along hit or miss will waste time and opportunity. Council members and citizens can learn, staff can  be trained and acquired, consultants can guide and advise.  To start finding out what needs doing, council members  should all consider attending the February 15 Union of  B.C. Municipalities one-day seminar in Richmond. The  agenda could hardly be more suited to Sechelt's needs.  The theme is council effectiveness. Topics include: roles  of politicians; needs of council; setting corporate direction  (goals); role of senior staff; needs of staff; role of administrator; setting policy; council/management problems.  Councillors should find they need to determine their  corporate needs and have a corporate plan. These things  should come before council goes galloping off in all directions in decision making or before building a town hall.  For this planning council needs consultants. Such can be  found through the B.C. municipal affairs department and  through schools of learning.  A corporate needs study and organization plan report  will give council needed guidance. Such an independent,  expert report will also provide Sechelt's citizens with  assurance the best interests of the municipality are being  served.  The foundation for a highly successful Sechelt  municipality can thus be laid. A yardstick and blueprint  will be provided for councils for years to come.  Many time wasting and costly blunders can be avoided  by this process. Sechelt's beckoning and bright future can  thus be more quickly and surely achieved.  5 YEARS AGO  Five or six local teachers faced loss of their jobs at  the end of June after the provincial government announced money saved during a three day teacher strike  in November wouldn't be given over to the local school  board.  Garry Moldowan, 20, of Roberts Creek was killed in a  single car crash on Highway 101 December 31 near the  Sunshine Coast Trailer Park. The car in which he was a  passenger went out of control on ice and sheared off a  hydro pole.  Helen Daw, historian, writer and conscience of  Sechelt died in St. Mary's Hospital. Holder of a number  of academic degrees, she was a Second World War  Canadian Navy veteran as well as a U.S. Navy veteran in  the Korean War. She compiled an immense volume of  historical material on Sechelt.  Forty-four hardy souls entered the waters of Davis  Bay for the first annual Schetxwen Swim on New Year's  Day as nearly 1000 spectators watched.  10 YEARS AGO  Over 100 friends gathered at the Madeira Park Legion  to give Fisheries Officer Ray Kraft a grand send-off. Ray  had been the officer in this area for eight and a half  years.  The Sechelt Indian Band, under the direction of the  chief and council, awarded Darren Dixon athlete of the  year for his participation in school sports and all band  sport activities.  20 YEARS AGO  Jacqueline Rose, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. R.F. Branca of West Sechelt, arrived on the scene at St. Mary's  Hospital January 4 at 4:50 pm, the first baby born on the  Sunshine Coast in 1969.  30 YEARS AGO  Building permits issued at Sechelt during November  included a new store and a new church for Bethel Baptist congregation. Total cost will be $16,000.  Dan MacKay, well known fisherman of Pender Harbour, lost his boat when two explosions set his gill net  boat on fire.  40 YEARS AGO  The Western Fish Co. scow was robbed of $400 when  thieves broke open a window and took the cash box  while buyer, Jack Lonsdale, was over at his boat in Egmont.

In each New Year  Life and time are gifts  by Rev. June Maffin, Rector  St. Hilda's and St. Andrew's  Churches  Happy New Year!  Seems as if everywhere we go,  someone greets  us  with  this  message. A smile is on their  face, hope in their hearts, optimism in their stride.  As the greeting is passed from  one to another, we share in a  unique moment in our history,  the passing of one year to  another.  We hope. We pray. We  dream. We make resolutions to  say or do 'those things I ought  to have done' or to say or hot to  do 'those things I ought not to  have done'.  We want to make a new  beginning. Our intentions are  honourable. We are genuine in  our attempt to forgive (ourself  or another), honest in our attitudes to the persons/situations  which coloured our memory of  1988, humble in our inward  search to 'begin anew'.  We make resolutions; lists of  intentions   for   action;   spend  Infants dying  more time with the children;  lose weight; write those letters I  keep putting off; be on time for  appointments; sort through the  family photos; get more exercise; take the hem up on those  slacks; go out for an evening  alone with my spouse; stop procrastinating; start going to  church; get caught up on those  professional journals; begin  Christmas shopping earlier next  year; enjoy the ocean shore  more often; visit my friends in  hospital; take in a leisurely stroll  at sunset; write in my journal;  get caught up in the paperwork  at home, etc.  It all boils down to accessing  how we plan to spend our time  in the New Year. What specifically will we do with the  precious 24 hours of each day  ahead of us for the next 52  weeks, those 3,760 hours. Will  we be good stewards of this time  given us?  It might help to look at the  components of our English  word for time. The Greeks used  two words to explain the different dimentions of time,  'chronos' and 'kairos'.  For most of us, the time we  speak of in our day to day activities is the 'chronos' kind, the  pedantic, clock watching,  systematic notation or gauging  of our time. It's those scheduled  activities, our daily rituals, our  'going to work/school/doing  the laundry/picking up groceries/putting out the garbage/taking the kids to their activities'  time.  The 'kairos' time of our lives  is the most elusive. It's those  treasured moments of our lives  when we take time to 'be still'  and get in touch with our true  selves, understand ourselves in  relation to our creator, see the  'miracles' about us and know  beyond all knowing from an intellectual point of view, that  God is God.  It's these moments we spend  sitting by the bedside of a sick  child quietly reading a book;  seeing a newborn baby; watching a caterpillar burst into a  beautiful butterfly; noting the  formation of the clouds on the  horizon; being reassured by the  gentle purring of a cat or nuzzl  ing of a dog; hearing a piece of  music that sends shivers up your  spine; reading a portion of  scripture you've read countless  times before and having it 'leap'  from the page with a meaning  you'd never before encountered; receiving and giving a  hug; having a smile returned;  enjoying that prayer time in the  tub/shower/car/on the way to  work/in that favourite  chair/church pew; being aware  of the gift of your breath;  holding the hand of someone  who is dying; sitting in silence  before the ocean or a fireplace  and hearing in that silence an  affirmation that you are person  God our creator chose to call into being; slowly eating a meal  lovingly prepared; receiving a  gift from another who, for no  reason, chose to bless your day  by giving you a present of  his/her time or material possessions; having fun in the kitchen  making a casserole or cookies  you'll share with someone else;  gasping at the rainbow that arcs  across the horizon; walking  through a cemetery and being  Please turn to page 14  Should try midwifery  by Harold Blaine  Recent statistics show  Canada's health record for the  newborn is rather dismal in  comparison to that of the advanced countries of the world.  At the same time the profession  of midwifery is almost completely discouraged in this country, and is opposed by the  medical profession, according  to a recent news report.  In countries where midwifery  is an integral part in the care of  pregnant women and the newborn, the infant mortality rates  tend to be better than in  Canada. At the same time, the  profession of midwifery is  under study at some levels in  Canada.  If Canada's infant mortality  record were as good or better  than that in other leading  modern countries, then there  would be little reason to push  for change, such as the introduction of midwifery. But  since our record isn't good, then  this innovation should be  carefully considered.  It is true that women trained  in midwifery find themselves  banging up against a brick wall  when they try to practise their  skills in Canada. This is hard to  understand.  UBC Nursing Professors  Elaine Carty and Alison Rice  are qualified nurse-midwives.  But there are few places they  can practice in Canada.  One is in a small, unique  clinic operating out of Vancouver's Grace Hospital.  Carty and Rice would like to  see that situation change.  For most of their professional  careers, they have been working  to establish midwifery as a  recognized profession. They say  midwives can complement existing provincial health care services and help cut maternity  care costs.  In 1981, they helped found  the Nurse Midwifery Service,  the first clinic of its kind in  Canada. This service is now  operated on a part time basis by  Grace Hospital's nursing  department.  Canada is one of the few  developed countries that does  not recognize midwifery as a  profession. The nine clinic  nurse-midwives, including Carty and Rice, are all qualified to  practice in other countries.  "Many people associate midwifery with home delivery and  they're surprised to find out  that we work in conjunction  with regular hospital services,"  Carty said.  Women give birth in hospital  attended by the midwife who is  the constant-care giver from the  time conception is confirmed to  about six weeks after birth.  Physician consultation is always  available.  Midwives provide pre-natal  care including assessment of the  mother and baby, nutrition and  exercise counselling, and help  the family prepare for the impact of an infant. Children are  involved as much as possible in  the process.  "That's what we see as the  different focus of midwifery  care," Rice explained. "Looking at the pregnancy in the context of the family."  In the last month, the midwife and family stage a birth  rehearsal in the hospital delivery  room, an exercise that helps  alleviate  apprehension,   Carty  said.  Carty and Rice would like the  Nurse Midwifery Service to expand to meet what they say is a  gap in the health care system.  Adolescents   and   immigrant  women, in particular, would  benefit from a midwifery service, Carty says.  There is a very good chance  these two trail-blazing nurses  are on the right track. They  should be given a chance to prove it.  The price of  employment  A beach was closed just this morning  Where boys and girls once bathed,  "But don't be dismayed  Officialdom brayed,  "For a great many jobs were saved."  Clams and oysters were wasted  When dioxins spilled into the sea,  But numerous jobs  Were preserved for the mobs  So the spillers paid no penalty.  A hillside was logged, a mountain bared,  A forest was lost to the saw,  But jobs were created  So folks were elated,  And the government called it a draw.  A smog cloaked our city this winter,  Made by factory fumes and exhaust,  Folks coughed and folks sneezed,  While the ministries wheezed:  We'll have jobs no matter the cost!  We've tarnished our water and poisoned  our air,  Destroyed our forest and coast,  Still folks will not see,  Nor our leaders agree,  That life not a job matters most.

Ferry run between  Horseshoe Bay and Langdale, I  would like the opportunity to  express my opinion on your  grossly unfair indictment of the  B.C. Ferries in your editorial  cartoon   in   the   Coast   News  dated December 19.  Firstly,  in  answer to your  questioning the policy of the  B.C. Ferries practice of trying  to maintain a schedule, I have  this to say. Airlines have  schedules. Trains and buses  having schedules and as an  editor, I would think that with  various deadlines for stories,  photographs and advertising,  you can comprehend the value  of each schedule.  Secondly, I can see that this  decidedly negative tone of the  cartoon includes the B.C. Ferries slogan 'Your Friendship  Fleet'. I do not know them by  name but they do know me.  From the ticket counter to the  car deck, to the cafeteria, I am  greeted by people who are  friendly, courteous, helpful and  pleasant to talk to.  Thirdly, your portrayal of the  B.C. Ferry personnel as some  sort of.Christmas 'Scrooge', I  have this story to relate to you.  On December 18, while I was  waiting for the 7:25 pm sailing I  ran into someone I knew,  Sharon Wagner, a visually impaired woman, with her two  sons and guide dog. It seems she  had slipped on a sidewalk and  had scraped her knee so badly  that she had difficulty walking.  I went to where the shore  crew has their coffee to see if  they could get her a wheelchair.  In minutes there was one there  for her.  She got wheeled on the ferry  where the steward got the  woman who was the first aid attendant who treated her very  promptly. When she mentioned  she would have to take a taxi  home from the bus stop because  she could barely walk, she was  offered a ride from many people that included one of the car  deck workers.  After talking with her today I  found she wanted to know who  to thank. On her behalf I would  like to thank the shore crew  from Horseshoe Bay, the car  deck workers who wheeled her  on and off the ferry, Mr. Fred  Patrick the steward aforementioned, the first aid attendant  and the man who gave her and  her family a ride home.  As for 'Smirnoff, the red  nosed reindeer' and the B.C.  flag with 'In Zalm we trust' are  decidedly beneath my comment.  I think you owe at least the B.C.  Ferries personnel one very  lavish apology.  John H. Neufeld  Theatre project admirable but site is mistake  Editor's Note: A copy of the  following was received for  publication:  Mayor Strom and council  Gibsons, B.C.  The Theatre Project is admirable. The presence of a  theatre on the Sunshine Coast is  essential now, but the mistake is  in locating it at Gibsons.  SECHELT CARPETS  {Next- Dour  to Rod & White Store)  LAST WEEK BEFORE  CLOSEOUT!  All Carpets & Vinyls at Cost  885-5315  The issue is clear. Is the  theatre for the Sunshine Coast  residents or for attempting to  attract the Vancouver audience.  Those of us in Pender Harbour and Egmont travel constantly to Sechelt or Gibsons for  many of our daily needs. But it  seems to be much farther for  'southerners' to come all the  way up here for any event.  Necessities are one thing, but  entertainment and meetings are  another. If it is too far for us to  go to Gibsons, it follows that  Vancouverites will also consider  Gibsons too far.  It is folly to count on Vancouver for financial support to  make the project viable, with all  the   entertainment   available  there.  There is an audience in  Pender Harbour and environs  ripe for culture, as proven at the  Messiah performance for which  it paid a good admission. One  hundred and eighty-five people  of various ages and incomes  paid $10 to see a first class performance of Handel's Messiah.  This group will grow in  numbers, support and enthusiasm if the theatre is more  centrally located on the coast.  There was a larger audience in  Pender Harbour than in Sechelt  two nights earlier.  We don't need to go to Vancouver for support. The audience is right here and there is  the  money  to  spend  if the  Crown land request  ��� i i i i ��� i fa  You Deserve the BEST in  QUMJTY pHOTOS  Try the rest then come to Tri ��� PhOtO  and compare quality  If you are not satisfied your money  will be refunded!  Editor:  In your December 19 issue it  was reported that the Sunshine  Coast Regional District board is  asking for public support for its  application to the provincial  government for 50 acres of  Crown land east of the B&K  logging road.  Before asking for public support isn't it proper procedure to  provide the public with detailed  information and maps showing  the land in question, Cliff  Gilker Park and the proposals  of the golf club, etc.?  There are all sorts of rumours  flying around such as the golf  club plans to build a new clubhouse on the children's playground.  Too much back room lobbying has been taking place, the  public should be involved in  discussions about a park which  belongs to us all.  . Its time we get to know what  is going oh. f  ,.,...,. Maryanne West  marketing is well done.  The choir that Lyn Vernon  brought together was some kind  of miracle that unified the musicians of the* Sunshine Coast  which is, after all, one area, not  three districts. A similar unification could occur among all people interested in fine entertainment and all the arts if we had a  facility for performances in  Sechelt.  Future land development and  of course, population will be  shifting north as the land in  Gibsons is filled. Therefore,  your thoughts should be toward  the larger population from  which to draw.  Please bear in mind the time  when Pender Harbour gave up  its hospital to have one located  for the benefits of those on the  whole coast. It is the same idea  needed now with the theatre.

It does take several years to  earn back the money required to  print picture post cards. The  larger companies which supply  them have decreed the Gibsons  market is not large enough to  make this financially viable.  Last year some of the businesses in the lower village produced a 'Molly's Reach' card.  This year June Boe prduced five  different cards which are selling  very well locally (even though  they are double the price of the  older local cards).  There are also several other  local books, including the outdated 'Beachcombers' supplied  by the Gibsons Chamber of  Commerce.  These sell briskly in the summer to the tourist trade.  My point is that there are  more post cards of Gibsons being offered for sale now than  there ever have been in the past.  Perhaps they should be stocked  in more outlets.  Many of the landing merchants have gone to a great deal  of trouble and expense to offer  various types of souvenirs to the  tourist trade and I believe they  should be commended for this.

He was referring to a recent  number of critical items appearing in one local newspaper and  an article in defence of the  theatre society, which article appeared in another local newspaper.  "It is not our intention, and  never has been, to build  anything without the support of  the public," said lawyer Russell  Crum, speaking on behalf of  the theatre society. "We want  to have the support of the community as a whole, or else not at  all."  Spokesperson Crum recommended council form a committee to study the question, hear  written and oral submissions,  hold hearings, etc., and recommend to council what should be  done.  Alderman John Reynolds  said he agreed with Crum's proposal. Addressing the mayor sitting as council chairperson,  Reynolds said, "I'm in favour  of a committee. I look forward  to hearing from it and will wait  for you to name it."  Alderman Gerry Dixon said  the committee shouldn't be too  cumbersome in size.  Mayor Strom said that with  all she was hearing recently  from the public and in the press,  she was beginning to feel like a  "push me, pull me".  Strom said she heard from  many, many people all the way  from Egmont to Hopkins Landing. Most of them were from  outside the town's boundaries  and didn't have to deal with the  municipal corporations' deficit.  "The town is made up of only 1,400 taxpayers who would  have to pick up the deficit. It  would have to be fully a community project, not just (sponsored) by Gibsons," she said.  Alderman Reynolds said  council shouldn't eliminate the  possibility that the theatre might  be located elsewhere. That  should be something for the  committee to consider.  A citizen noted there was  much infighting in the matter.  "Gibsons needs to lead the  way," he said.  Former-alderman Bob Max~  _..well suggested the project could,  factor in something like a con-^  vention centre. They Could also,  factor in school system activities.  "Just think of all the uses it  could be put to," he said.  Alderman Ken Collins said he  is concerned that the town's  main park land not go into  private hands "if God somehow  kicked the project".  "I have some concerns," said  Collins, noting that such projects at Stratford and Ashland  have had great success. "But  both those theatres have different geographies around  them," with people able to  travel 70 miles around for a two  hour play.  Alderman Collins noted the  theatre's proponents have  shown a remarkable community  spirit which shouldn't be suppressed. He said the fact that  choice and controversial town  First  degree  murder  charge  Charged with first degree  murder was Marcel Joseph  Gerard, 51, of RR1, Gibsons  Saturday. Charged with being  an accessory after the fact of  murder was Denis Joseph  Gerard, .31, of Gibsons, said  Sergeant Edward Hill, officer in  charge at Gibsons RCMP  detachment, in a New Year's  Eve written press release.  The charges are in regard to  the murder of Claude Joseph  Dupuis, 58, of Montreal whose  body was found October 8 in a  shallow grave, a short distance  off the Port Mellon Highway  near Gibsons, said Sergeant  Hill.  Police provided no further  details in the case, except to say  the investigation is continuing.

I hope it is a sign of  Sunshine Coast (community)  co-operation "in the future," he  said.  In his letter to council requesting the town's extended  approval in principle for the  Holland Park theatre site,  theatre society president Purdy  said, "We have made good  fund raising progress in the last  12 months, both in the private  and government sectors. We  have modified our plans from a  300 seat theatre to a smaller  phase one 200 seat facility on  the site of the Old Fire Hall.  This will, of course, greatly  reduce our initial cost."  "We.now have cogent reasons to believe that we can raise  the money for the modified  building in the near future," he  said, requesting extension of the  agreement terms set out in a  mayor's letter of December 18,  1985.

The endurance competition  was divided into two categories  this year, for children and  adults. Contestants ranged in  age from the youngest, seven-  year-old Jessica Sangster, to  68-year-old Louise Coliiss. One  came from as far away as Monr  treal.  Holding with tradition, John  Webb piped the intrepid parr  ticipants to the water's edge and  at the sound of the gun, fired by  Sechelt mayor Tom Meredith,  they plunged into the six degree  centigrade water of Georgia  Strait.  There were a few anxious  moments during the adults' endurance swim when second  place winner, Wally Henschel  collapsed on the beach. He was  promptly cared for by ambulance attendants and whisked  away to St. Mary's Hospital,  where he was checked over and  released.  Winners   of   the   various  categories were:  Funniest Hat - Leah.Combas,  Bob Perry; Best Costume - Bob  Perry, Darlene Homberg,  Jessica Sangster, Caroline Merrill; Boniest Knees - Vanessa  Wells, Dave Wells; Adult Endurance Race - Cliff  deShepherd, Wally Henschel,  Cam Murray, Stan Hope;  Children's Endurance Race  -Ryan Lewis, Alice Stephens,  Vanessa Dawson, Mary Kon-  nepic, Terry Halsey; Oldest  Swimmer - Dave Wells, Louise  Coliiss; Chattiest Teeth - Wally  Henschel; Youngest Swimmers  -Cliff Myrray, Jessica Sangster;  Furthest Distance from Out of  Town - Albert Ecel, (Montreal)  Vanessa Wells (Toronto).  1  I  x  i  ��  Davis Bay News H Views  Story hour  <3Q)5<^^3,5^^S(^^3y5i^^S)  Our Y,  Clearance  bids started dt  by Jean Robinson, 885-2954  I hope 1989 is a healthy one  for all of you.

Predictions for the coming  year have become rather like  Christmas carols, something I  look forward to but that seem  to get a little overwhelming  before the season is over. Every  year I try to pick up as many  publications as possible, glossy  or pulp, that promise to give me  the inside scoop on what the  famous, and infamous predict  for the next 12 months.  With great relief I mark my  calendar with the predicted day  of ���; the 'West Coast  Earthquake', an annual ritual  that allows me to relax and feel  safe for theother 364 days. And  I anxiously watch superstars for  the first signs of the pregnancies  which  forecasters  assure  will  produce alien children.  By comparison, astrology  seems pretty boring. I don't  even know which planets to  look at to see if, indeed, a sas-  quatch will come to power in  upper Nairobi, or if UFO's will  kidnap Gorbachev's wife,  although Uranus often prompts  some pretty alien behaviour.  Nevertheless, for those of you  who like to keep track of the  less sensational trends during  the year ahead, I offer some  notations for your calendars.  A good thing to be aware of  is those times when Mercury  goes retrograde (appears to  move backwards). These are  times 'not' to sign contracts,  buy a major appliance or real  Naturalizers  *39" to $49"  Clearance Table  Ladies' Boots  30% Off  Bobbies Shoes  Trail Bay Mall  Cowrie St. Sechelt  885-9838  Time of intense tranformation  estate or go on trips. Nothing  disastrous is likely to happen,  but things tend to get fouled up  and need to be re-done, or rescheduled.  In 1989 Mercury takes this  backward hike January 16 to  February 5, May 12 to June 5,  September 11 to October 3, and  December 30 to the following  January 20.  For those who have followed  the developments since the Harmonic Convergence, the 'energy  influxes' occur on February 15,  May 15, August 15 and November 15. Of some significance is  February 15, when Pluto will  appear to be stationary at that  time, dead centre in the middle  of Scorpio.  It could indicate a time of intense transformation and purification. At the very least it  would be worthwhile to spend  much of that day in meditation.  Better yet, you might want to  plan to go into retreat during  that entire week.  April promises to be an interesting month, with three  outer planets taking turns at  'making a station' (appearing to  stand still, and then going  retrograde. Uranus starts the  trend on April 9, Neptune  follows suit on April 13 and  Saturn joins the party on April  22.  In the political arena, this  Buy Sechelt Marsh  V.''.\  Sechelt Municipal District has  acquired one more piece of real  estate. This particular purchase  has made the Sechelt Marsh  Society happy.  At council meeting December  21, Mayor Tom Meredith announced the purchase of Lot 48  between the Arts Centre and the  Sechelt Marsh.  Earlier last year, council  agreed to match funds raised  from the public to purchase the  property and integrate it with  the existing marsh. However,  when Meredith became mayor  in November, he discovered the  district engineer, Derek.  Ashford, wanted to use the lot  as part of the drainage system  for that area.  Ashford wants to put a  lagoon in the middle of the lot  and possibly develop it as a people place. The Marsh Society  and local nature enthusiasts  may have some different plans  for the parcel, though.  As longtime Marsh Society  member Vince Bracewell  pointed out in an interview with  the Coast News, the lot is a  haven for bird watchers.

It is hoped that  Operation CounterAttack has  aroused the public to an  awareness of the hazards of impaired driving.  The icy roads last week put a  number of vehicles in the ditches. How is your car set for  winter travel? Tires, brakes? Do  you clear your windows of condensed moisture before starting  out on the road?  The swimming pool had a  door glass shattered but no entry made. "When I opened the  door, the glass fell out in small  pieces," said the pooi supervisor. "Happened over  Christmas."  There have been complaints  of   outside   Christmas   lights  ���������<  r  /^-  disappearing.  Pedestrians complained of a  vehicle speeding by them as they  tried to cross the road.  * An 11-year-old male was apprehended on Boxing Day during the investigation of three  garbage dumpster fires at Gibsons Elementary and at the Post  Office.  Matches were used to start  the fires. No major damage was  done because of prompt  response by the fire department.

"I now have a nine to five  job," said Costa to a ^Windsor  news reporter,"but it is 9 pm to  5 am when I give the network  news for varying time zones.  "The news announcer also  has some part now in the news  gathering and in selecting news  items," Costa said.  When asked if his new position is very different from the  one he is just leaving in CBC's  Windsor station, Costa said  that indeed it is.  "I was one of the hosts of the  Windsor station's daily Morning Watch wherein I interviewed  politicians, for example, and  other community figures. Yes,  I'll miss the challenge of preparing for interviews and then bringing out the best of the guest's  expertise. And making sure he  or she keeps to the point.

We put out a  school newspaper called Elph-  events.  "What I thought would be an  easy fill-in course became my  main interest. It led me to take  the two-year course in journalism in Langara college after  graduating from Elphinstone in  1976.  "A summer job between sessions at Langara took me to a  Quesnel radio station. That  changed my career direction  from print to broadcasting."  After Langara, Costa took  general arts courses in Capilano  college before setting out in  earnest upon his radio career.  "That was enough school;  time to get to work."

"  Coast News, January 2,1989  Sunshine Coast residents not  using well water should flush  water out of their pipes to avoid  possible exposure to lead in  water system pipe solder, said  Dr. Ray Marsh, Coast/Garibaldi Health Unit medical officer of health, December 20.  "The adverse effects of lead  have been a public health concern for a long time. They probably contributed to the demise  of the Roman Empire through  food being cooked and stored in  lead lined containers and consumed from lead alloy goblets,"  said Dr. Marsh in a press statement.  "Effects of heavy exposure  are easily recognized and include abdominal pains, anaemia  and nervous system abnormalities. Present day public  health controls have made these  events extremely rare.  "However, subtle, difficult  to recognize and document, effects may still be occurring as a  result of continued low level exposure. These may include  behavioural and learning pro  blems in children.  "It is to this possibility that  continued effort is being  directed to further reducing lead  exposure," said the local  medical health officer.  "The major sources of the  past have been lead based paints  and soldered tins of food. Of  these, the remnants of paint in  old houses built before the  1950's remains in scattered  areas.  "The, major present day  sources ' are leaded gasoline  (which is being brought under  control), from contaminated  soil and dust, and from lead  soldered household plumbing.  This latter may be of significance in areas where water is  corrosive, such as the pure, soft  water frequently used in coastal  areas of B.C.  "Hard water of artesian or  well source is less likely to be  corrosive.  "For the above reason, I am  advising people to run their  household taps prior to drinking the water which has been  contained in the plumbing for  overnight or extended daytime  periods. The water in distribution systems leading to houses is  generally safe from this contamination.  "A convenient guide is to  flush the tap until it runs cold,  indicating outside uncon-  taminated water. Again, this  need only be done after the  system has been unused for  some time.  "For those using a well or  artesian supply, this may not be  necessary but requires case by  case determination.  "With continued public  health pressure, the discontinuation of leaded gasoline and  alternatives to lead soldered  plumbing fixtures, this possible  but   subtle   and   difficult   to  demonstrate hazard will also  become a thing of the past. As  of today, however, it is advisable to exercise the simple  forgoing precaution," said  Medical Health Officer Marsh.

World unity is nor an ultimate, far-off goal.  In fact, the world has already become virtually one country, and  its problems can only be solved by the united will of humankind.  Over a century ago, Baha'u'llah, the Founder of the Baha'i'  Faith, said: "The well-being of mankind, its pe.ire and security are  unattainable unless and until its unity is firmly es: ���blished."  Just as the teachings of Christ, Moses, Krishna, Buddha and Muhammad united great numbers of people in the past, the teachings  that Baha'u'llah has brought from Cod in this age show the way to  unity for all mankind.

Vernon has been' responsible  for some fine performances  here in the last few years, but  this performance of the Messiah  surpassed them all. Her high  standard of professionalism  resulted in a joyful celebration  of that part of the Christmas  spirit that can so easily get lost  in those hectic pre-Christmas  days.  The choir gave Handel's  magnificent music the inspired  interpretation   it   demands.  Soprano Arline Collins' wonderful voice and deeply moving  presentation of her solo parts  were a highlight of the performance.  A particularly interesting  feature was the use of electronic  keyboards to produce the sound  of a full orchestra. Ken  Dalgleish's musical and electronic expertise was responsible  for this revolutionary aspect of  the performance..  Sue Winters, who played the  violin and harpsichord section  of the accompaniment, sustained a long and difficult part with  flawless ease. Ken Dalgleish and  Heather Lydel played the parts  of the remaining violins, the  trumpet, cellos and basses.  Handel might have been surprised, but probably very pleased at the effect.

Betty Keller  and David Foss approached  council to approve a variance  on the location of the proposed  pavilion at Rockwood Lodge.  The change would see the  pavilion encroach slightly on the  setback required for commercial buildings.  Responding to council  members' questions about  sound control, Keller pointed  out the building committee will  have to learn a lot about ac-  coustics before the pavilion is  built. The effect of the earth  floor, the possibility of  moveable baffles, and many  other questions will need to be  answered, she said.  The reason for the variance,  David Foss of the building committee explained, was to  preserve an old cedar tree,  which would otherwise have to  be removed. Additionally, the  pavilion is being angled toward  the annex which will force the  noise toward that direction.  Possible disruption of surrounding residents by noise,  and inadequate parking facilities, have been issues brought  up in opposition to the construction of the facility.  At the same meeting, council  received a letter from Mrs.  D.W. Steele, who lives next to  Rockwood Lodge.  She listed  five concerns about the proposed pavilion and asked council to  '...thoroughly and objectively  inspect the site and logistics  before final approval is  granted.'  In addressing questions about  potential parking problems,  Betty Keller told council the  festival just received approval  from St. Hilda's Church to use  the church parking lot. This  would provide approximately  40 spaces.  NIn addition, she explained,  there is a large parking lot at  Chatelech Senior Secondary.  This parking is unused during  the run of the festival and  would be the obvious place for  most people to park.  If constructed according to  the design By local architect  Kevin Ryan, the pavilion will  seat up to 500 people, and will  be available for any appropriate  function in the community.  Responding to council members' questions about sound  control, Keller pointed out the  building committee will have to  learn a lot about accoustics  before the pavilion is built. The  affect of the earth floor,' the  possibility 6f moveable baffles,  and many otherxquestions. will  need to be answered, she said.  Foss and Keller agreed with  council members' suggestion  that the building committee  consult an accoustics expert.  Council referred the application  for a variance on the setback requirement to the planning committee.  Peace group shows film  The Sunshine Coast Peace  Group is starting its year off  with a video entitled 'In Our  Own Backyard'. It was produced by Anne Cubitt of Courtney,  B.C., and focuses on the  strength of the Nanoose Conversion Campaign, especially  throiigh the words of women.  Nanoose is a quiet bay, 10  miles north of Nanaimo. It is an  Armed Forces experimental and  test range. There torpedoes are  fired and tested. War vessels  and submarines (many carrying  nuclear weapons) dock.  Nanoose is also the centre of  a very active community of people who are working to end all  weapons testing in Georgia  Strait-and to convert the facility  into peaceful, economically  productive and environmentally  sound uses.

In the company locker room  Herb and his associates change  into white factory uniforms  along with the legitimate  workers. They exchange no sign  of recognition.  It would seem on the surface  to be merely the commencement  of another quite ordinary su*t.  But Herb and the others kno\  differently. Tonight is the night.  Herb waits until the last  straggler has left the changing  room. Then, clutching his tool  bag, he slips furtively along the  deserted hall, unlocks the office  door and enters.  He is joined shortly by Cox  and one by one the others  follow. When the last member is  safely inside the door is relock-  ed.  As usual, there are watchmen  to contend with, three of them  in this instance. Divesting  themselves of the white  coveralls, Herb, Bertsch and the  others conceal themselves in a  janitor's supply closet and wait.  When the watchmen arrive  on cue, they are summarily  overpowered, securely bound  and gagged, and locked in the  closet. It is time for Herb to  demonstrate his expertise once  again.  The safe is a peculiar European model of a type that none  of the gang has encountered  before. Although it is only four  feet high it is at least 10 feet in  length and is actually two safes  in one.  It has two separate compartments and two separate doors.  Evidently the company's books  are kept in one and the money  in the other.  It is impossible to.tell which is  which. They only way to proceed is by sheer guesswork.  Muttering a few uncharitable  words about the manufacturers  of such unconventional strongboxes, Herb lays out his tools  and prepares theinitial charge.  ���.��, Despite its odd construction  the safe yields easily to Herb's  persuasive formula.   It boasts  Women, wit, literature on course  Capilano College is offering  an evening course on Women in  Literature featuring American  writers of the 19th and 20th  Centuries.  Instructor Frances Brownell  says this will be an overview  course, including authors such  as Flannery O'Connor, Dorothy Parker, Bobbie Anne  Mason, Anne Bradstreet, Emily  Dickinson, Edith Wharton,  Willa Cather, Marge Piercy,  May Sarton, Alice Walker,  Katherine Anne Porter and  more.  The course is offered Thurs  day evenings, 6:30 to 9:30 pm.  For further information call  98^4957.  two inner doors instead of one  but Herb springs them all with  no problem.  When the third door pops  open, however, it is immediately evident that he has made the  wrong choice. The inner  chamber contains nothing but  ledgers and papers.  "Blast! What a lousy break!"  explodes Cox.  Herb, his face grim, says  nothing. He moves quickly to  the second door and starts the  whole procedure all over again.  There is no time to waste on  complaining.  Three more doors are blasted  open and this time Herb's efforts are rewarded. The second  compartment is literally crammed with stacked bills and bags of  silver. Herb permits himself a  relieved smile.  "There we are, boys," he  says. "If at first you don't succeed,..."  Y  "Great work," enthuses Joe  Blue. "Looks like a tidy haul."  Their jubilance is totally  dashed by the sudden entrance  of Doc Redding who had just  gone into the next room to  check the prisoners. His face  wears a look of horror.  "Christ!" he gasps, "one of  the watchmen has busted loose  and got out of here! He must  have spread the alarm all over  the place by now!"  Redding's bad news freezes  them in their tracks. As if to  underscore his words a sudden  clamor of excited voices rises  from the street outside the  building.  Joe Bertsch takes a furtive  look out of the window.  "Sonofabitch! Doc's right!"  he exclaims, his tanned face  gone pallid. "There's an army  of cops out there."  The sound of the crowd  diminishes, then a commanding  voice rings out through a  megaphone.  "Listen, you in there!  I'm  giving you one minute to get out  here with your hands up. If you  don't,   we'll , blow   you   to  l- pieces!"  $    Under the pressure 6f the ex-  | igency Herb conceives a desperate plan.  "Get those coveralls back  on!" he orders. "Then grab the  money and follow me. It's our  only chance!"    -  To be continued...   ^OBBI^URNSTICKETS^^OO/ea.

Meanwhile, back at the Coast News....we in the production  department were putting in our normal 12 hour Saturday, but  being New Year's eve we begged and bullied our new editor into  granting us a one hour reprieve to celebrate like everyone else.  So it was off up the hill to Prontos Restaurant for our special  New Year's culinary event.  It was this writer's first visit to George's new establishment  and I was delighted with the soft blues and shining brass accents.  They lent a cool and relaxing atmosphere. Just right to ease the  frenetic energy level in a long working day.  The group of us decided to each choose something different  on the menu to get a fair sampling of everything. It was not easy  since we were all eyeing the steak and lobster! What we did come  up with was a sampling of most of the varieties of dishes offered  at Prontos. Steak, souvelaki, chicken, pasta, the works. Moans  and groans and nods of approval were the indicators of a meal  which was thouroughly appreciated by all lucky participants.  You ought to try Prontos too. It's worth the visit for a  reasonable price.  The toastin' coasters of the Coast News hope you all had as  nice an evening as we did with friends and co-workers, and wish  all our loyal resauranteurs and readers a very happy new year.

At  the last council meeting of 1988,  council members received an  outline project for which funding is being sought from the  Community Futures Committee.  Alderman Nancy MacLarty,  who is chairperson of the  Rockwood/Capilano Project  and who signed the covering letter, removed herself from council chambers when the issue  came up  ame up.  The program is aimed at pro-  iding   accredited   vocational  training for people between 18  and 50 who are not working.  Those who have never worked  will be considered for the program.  Preference will be given to  people who are receiving income assistance from the  government.  The goals, as outlined in the  proposal include: Preparation  for employment in the areas of  housekeeping, food services  training, landscaping and  gardening, general education in  grooming, safety and first aid  and appropriate work habits  and attitudes.  Successful completion of the  courses will earn the student a  certificate of competence from  Health clinics  Child Health Clinics will be  held in Gibsons on January 3,  10, 17, 24 and 31.

Coast News, January 2,1989  13.  Capilano College.  Practical training will take  place at Rockwood Lodge,  which has a large commercial  kitchen, landscaped grounds  and 12 bedrooms in the annex.  The facility is owned by the  District Municipality of Sechelt  and is used for cultural events,  workshops and seminars.  Classroom work will take  place at Capilano College  Sechelt Campus.  Sechelt council received a  copy of the letter of application  which MacLarty had sent to the  Community Futures Committee.  In it she writes, "As I am sure  your committee is aware, the  lower Sunshine Coast is sadly  lacking in vocational training  programs, especially for the  employment disadvantaged. As  you will see, the goals of the  Rockwood/Capilano Project  are to provide individualized  training in skills which will be  used in our area to the advantage of the tourism and retirement industries as well as the  community as a whole."  Council agreed to support the  proposal in principle, but added  a cautionary note that there is  no money available for the project form the district municipality.  To date, most of the work  that has been done in putting  the proposal together has been  by volunteers. However, the  project has now reached a stage  where a coordinator needs to be  hired to do a feasiblity study.1  This would identify the  number of prospective students  in the area, estimate the costs of  the program, explore the community's needs, and lobby for  employment opportunities for  successful graduates of the program. He or she would also  liaise with similar programs in  the lower mainland area and  Vancouver Island.  *  /  <  0410 13.1  3 0745 12.3  TU 1220 13.9  2035 3.7  Date Time Ht.-Ft.  0455 14.0  4 0900 12.7  WE 1300 13.7  2115 2.7  0535 14.7  5 1005 12.7  TH 1345 13.7  2115 1.9  Dale Time Ht.-Ft.  0610 15.1  6 1050 12.6  FR 1440 13.&  2240 1.3  0640 15.5  .7 1135 12.3  SA 1535 13.8  2320 .9  Dale Time Ht.-Ft.  0710 15.6  8 1215 11.9  SU 1635 13.8  Date Time  A  0005  9 0745  MO 1300  1735  Ht.-Ft  1.0W  15.8  11.3  13.7  /  Reference: Point AtkinSOn    F��r Skookumchuk Narrows add 1 hr 45 min ,  _       .,.      _ ,        . ���. plus 5 mm lor each ft. of rise.

'i"j i   !  I  ii  14.  Coast News, January 2,1989  Two years ago, then attorney  general Brian Smith launched  an ad campaign telling British  Columbians the provincial  government recognized that victims of crime were often lost in  the shuffle of the judicial  system. A program was initiated  to focus on the needs of victims  of crime and help them to work  with the courts.  Throughout B.C. the RCMP  have established victim/witness  programs to demonstrate that  the system does work and does  care. Recently a program has  been put into place on the Sunshine Coast and is now  operating out of the RCMP  detachment in Sechelt.  Sechelt council has offered  both its endorsement of the program and its assistance in administering the funding. The  program is partially funded by  the ministry of the solicitor  general (provincial) which has  provided a one-time start-up  grant of $3320 and an annual  allocation of $10,000 to pay a  co-ordinator for the program.  The RCMP are providing 'in  kind'   contributions  of office  space, use of office machines  and office supplies.  The ministry, although committed to on-going funding,  does not cover all of the  operating costs. Some fundraising will have to be done in the  community to help cover those,  according to the new co-ordinator, Rita Petrescu.  Petrescu will be working  closely with police and Crown  counsel. She will provide services to victims who are described as, "any person suffering  death, physical or psychological  injury or loss of, or damage to,  personal property, as a result of  a criminal act by another person  or persons."  This includes close family  members in cases of death or  severe injury. She will also be  working with people who may  be witnesses to a criminal act.  The service is non-crisis. That  is, Ms Petrescu will be referring  people to appropriate counselling agencies, such as the transition house or private  counsellors. She will also provide information  designed to  Sechelt    Scenario  by Margaret Watt, 885-3364  Well, it's all over for another  year. I hope you all got whatever your hearts desired for  Christmas, and that you haven't  let too many New Year's resolutions slide away already. If you  have, don't worry, there's  always next year to look forward to.  For those of us who may  have ate too much during the  holidays, there are several  fitness classes going on in  Sechelt, one of them is bound to  suit you.  The Sechelt Scouts and Cubs  will be calling on you sometime  this week to see if they may haul  away your old Christmas tree.  There is no charge for this service, but a small donation  would not go amiss. On January 8 there will be a tree burning  bonfire behind the Trail Bay  Mall. Hot chocolate will be  served and it should be a lot of  fun.  HOSPITAL AUXILIARY  The Sechelt branch invites  you along to their monthly  meeting on January 12 at 1:30  pm at St. Hilda's. Come out  and meet your new committee  and bring a friend along too.  'de-mystify' the court process:  familiarizing witnesses with  courtroom lay-out and procedure; providing specific information about the specific case  such as the time and place of  bail hearings; or sentencing  hearings.  A lot of the time she'll be  providing practical assistance,  helping people fill out forms for  the Criminal Compensation  Board, arranging child care for  times when a witness has to be  in court, and providing  transportation to interviews and  the courthouse. What many  people may find most valuable,  however, is having a supportive  person present as they proceed  through a criminal case, from  the inital interview with police,  then Crown counsel, through  preliminary hearings and trials,  and sometimes appeals. Petrescu will be available to explain  what's happening and why.  A government press release  about the program will be sent  out soon. In the meantime,  Petrescu can be reached at  885-5554.  You will be made most welcome.  WRITERS' FORGE  The regular meeting will be  held Wednesday, January 11,  7:30 pm at Rockwood Lodge. It  would be nice to see most of our  members at this meeting. As  usual, the atmosphere will be  warm and friendly, and refreshments will be served.  If you haven't had time to  hand in your manuscript yet for  the writing contest, don't  despair, you may still hand it in  anytime this week.

We're all so very good when  it comes to the 'chronos' portions of our lives. Many of us-  have 1989 calendars already  partially filled in with scheduled  meetings/special events and oc-  casions/'don't forgets'.  What about the 'kairos' of  our lives? Will we take time to  'smell the flowers'? Hear God's  voice in the silence? Recognize  God's healing and compassionate presence in another's  smile, touch, phone call, visit,  letter, embrace, handshake,  tears?  There was a man who had  just recovered from a serious  asthmatic attack. There were a  few minute when he couldn't  breathe and for those minutes,  his life was tenuous.  On his recovery, he remarked  "I understand for the first time  in my life that life and time are  gifts! We think we have all the  time in the world. And then we  discover, so suddenly, we know  we don't."  The often-quoted proverb of  'don't put off to tomorrow  what you can do today' is usually addressed to those 'chronos'  activities of our lives. Could  that proverb also be addressed  to those 'kairos' moments of  our lives? A thought for reflection for this New Year.  May we seek to discover and  use, to God's glory, both the  'chronos' and 'kairos' moments  of our lives, and experience the  reality of the one who loves us,  unconditionally. Happy, blessed New Year!  Unless otherwise stated, all courses listed will be held at the Sechelt Campus, 5627 Inlet Avenue.  Classes commence the week of January 9.

The defibrillator, a high-tech  model like the one at St. Mary's  Hospital in Sechelt, is used to  restore normal heartbeat by sending electric current through the  body of a patient who's heart  has stopped or is beating irregularly.  This equipment, valued at  nearly $9500, was purchased by  the auxiliary with money raised  through bake and craft sales,  walk-a-thons, proceeds from  the Bargain Barn thrift store  and the gift showcase at the  clinic.  Pender Patter  Murphy heads Legion  by Myrtle Winchester, 883-9302  There is an ad elsewhere in  the Coast News, but in case  you've missed it, be forewarned  that the water will be off on  Wednesday, for four or five  hours if there aren't any complications.  A water main burst on Boxing Day at the corner of Lagoon  and Francis Peninsula Road.  The water board crew from Indian Isle Construction spent the  day repairing it.  This job exposed two large 20  year old valves that needed  replacement, and thus the additional work on Wednesday.

Madeira Park  is in danger of losing the centre  if it isn't arranged soon.  It seems the Info Centre was  once operated by the Chamber  of Commerce, but since that  ceased to exist the centre has  been held together by the community club.  MORE HELP WANTED  I'm looking for information  about the old Pender Harbour,  as far back as possible, for a  history of the area.

Half moo n B<ty Happen i rigs  by Ruth Forrester, 885-2418  This is one of those weeks  when the title of this column is  quite inappropriate. It's supposed to be about Halfmoon Bay  Happenings, but so far there  has not been a single phone call  about anything going on.  People have been busy either  with visitors or with going further afield to be with friends  and family during the holidays.  However, now that it's all  over for another year maybe  things will start happening again  and I will be glad to hear from  you with any items you may like  to have published.  You may remember that  some time ago I mentioned the  fact that a friend who used to  live in Sechelt was one of the  five people awaiting a heart  transplant. Her name is Norma  Spahr and many of you know  her.  She just happened to drop by  at my office and I was surprised  and pleased to see her. Norma  got special permission to spend  a few days on the Sunshine  Coast.  "I just felt a bit homesick for  my lovely view from Sandy  Hook" was how she put it.  If perchance her beeper  should sound during the next  few days she would be flown  right away by helicopter to Vancouver.  I said I would pass on her  season's greetings to all of her  friends in the area.  By the time this edition  reaches you, we will be into the  year of 1989 and the 'First Foot'  in our house will have been and  gone.  Probably most of you know  that we Scots keep up the old  tradition of the first foot, but in  case there is someone out there  who doesn't know what it's all  about, here is a brief outline.  The person whose foot is the  first one to arrive in your home  after midnight on December 31  should be a tall dark man. A  wee redhead is no good! He  should have with him a small  piece of coal, some shortbread  or cake and a wee drop of the  cratur, better known as Scotch  whiskey.  This will assure the household  that they will never be cold and  will always have coal or wood  for the fire, they will never be  hungry. The other item is of  course for medicinal purposes.  And this is when I send out  my annual new year's greeting  to one and all and say "Lang  may your lum reek!"  Translation: Long may your  chimney smoke, once again,  concern is expressed that you  keep warm and cozy in your  home.  May you all have a healthy  and happy new year and may  you prosper too.  Halfmoon Bay gets $2,454  for playground  Halfmoon Bay Recreation  Association has been awarded  $2,454 from the British Columbia Lottery Fund to help  develop a playground and parking area at Connor Park, Bill  Reid, minister of tourism and  provincial secretary, announced  recently.  "The association, which has  been operating for 10 years, is  dedicated to providing recreational activities for children and  adults in the community," said  Reid, minister responsible for  the fund.  Harold Long, MLA for Mackenzie, joined in making the announcement.  "The number of young children in the area is rising and  there is no other such facility for  them," said Long. "This is a  hard working group with excellent volunteer commitment."  The B.C. Lottery Fund uses  proceeds from lotteries operated  by the B.C. Lottery Corporation to support a wide range of  community initiatives.
