V8V 1X4  A request by the Parents'Advisory Council of Chatelech  High School for improvement  of the road to the school has  been refused by Sechelt council.  Nancy Denham, chairperson  of theparents'< group, described  the congested and dangerous  conditions   that   often   occur  89J8  nts are held at  ��� St. Hilda's  Church.  Council maintained the road  is adequate and comparable to  many other roads in the district.  It was agreed, however, that  parking on the road would be  prohibited.  Student council president  Eleanor O'Keefe told Sechelt  council that Chatelech grads are  prepared to provide labour to  improve the trail from the  school to the highway. The  students requested that Sechelt  council provide assistance from  a gardener and funds for the  project.  Alderman Wilson told  O'Keefe that Sechelt council  plans to install a culvert to pro  vide drainage for a marshy spot  on the trail. He said consideration would be given to the  students' other requests.  Recently Carol Oslie questioned council on behalf of the  Chatelech Parents' Advisory  Group.  Oslie asked council to respond to a letter sent by the  group raising concerns about  the road access to Chatelech.  The road is divided into three  parts.  Turning off the highway up  to the school is a narrow gravel  section with curbs on either side  at some places. That is followed  by a newly paved section, and  the road ends and loops around  on school property.  The section the parents are  concerned about is that whicf)  comes off the highway. The  lane width is tight for two-lane  traffic. -'!  When there are students also  walking up to the school, there  is no way a car can pull over to  keep clear of traffic coming the  other way. This can be especially dangerous in wet or sUppery  conditions.  per copy on news stands     March 6,1989        Volume 43        Issue 10  council ejects media  by Penny Fuller  Sechelt District council decided last week to conduct in secret  its business with land developers, including rezonings, land  subdivisions and development  plans.  At the Sechelt council  meeting of February 23, the  next meeting of the planning  committee was set for February  28 at 9:30 am. However, when  Coast News reporter Penny  Fuller arrived at the municipal  hall to cover the meeting, she  was told she was not permitted  to attend.  In a subsequent telephone call  from Clerk-administrator  Malcolm Shanks, the reporter  was informed of the reasons for  denying her coverage of the  meeting. Shanks pointed out the  media had been told they would  be permitted to attend the  meetings only on the basis that  they were not reported in the  papers.  Following a, planning com-  mittee meeting held on  February 3 and refusing to be  gagged, the Coast News ran a  front page article tided 'Ask Industrial Zone in Porpoise Bay'.  Shanks maintained that because  the issue had been brought up at  the planning committee  meeting, the article was a  breach of the agreement the  committee had made with the  media.  Fuller requested that Shanks  re-read the article. According to  the reporter,, the issue and application had been raised at the  open council meeting of February 1. And any additional information included in the article  such as permitted land uses  under various zoningr was  available to the public, it was  said. yY ,'Y  '.Y';,Y;yY  She also informed the; clerk  she had informed Mayor Tom  Meredith of her, intention to  write the article in the manner it  was presented. She had received  his approval, again on the basis  that nothing from the planning  committee meeting was quoted.  Shanks agreed to talk to the  mayor and re-read the disputed  article with the reporter's comments in mind.  The future of the Coast  News' attendance at planning  committee meetings has not yet  been resolved.  Coast governments  --, v-  V  Local government officials  from all jurisdictions on the  Sunshine Coast met secretly in  the Regional District boardroom Thursday, March 2.  Chaired by SCRD Chairman  Peggy Connor, the meeting  started with a video presentation ���'frpmU'tiw^;,.n__iistry.. of  transportation and highways  'Freedom to Move', said a press  release issued following the  meeting.  This was followed by an  agenda of interests concerning  all of the residents of the Sunshine Coast. The report from  Chairman Connor of the  minister of state task force on  transportation and highways informed the meeting of what has  transpired at the task force  meetings. The five most important highway needs for the coast  are: Gibsons Bypass, Rat Portage Hill, Secret Cove to Earls  Cove Highway, Egmont Highway and Port Mellon Highway,  said the press release.  The ferry terminals, both  Langdale and Horseshoe Bay  and lineup issues need to be addressed, said the release.  Environmental concerns are  to be referred to a task force  made up of representation of  the four entities who will add  technical and industry people as  needed. A joint venture.

Parks and recreation invoked  the most discussion. The  meeting agreed to explore the  possibility of some action to  facilitate the coordination of  recreation and leisure activities  on the Sunshine Coast.  In closing, the agreement was  for these meetings to be held  quarterly. Gibsons will host the  next meeting in June.

"The business.experience and  skills of Anderson will be a  significant contribution to the  advisory board,'' said Regional  Development Minister Elwood  i Veitch, Minister of State for the  I Mainland/Southwest Region.  f "This board is an essential  | part   of  the   Regional   Seed  Capital Loan Guarantee Program   in   the   mainland/  southwest."  The minister explained that  under the program, the business  people ask the government to  guarantee their business loans  from financial institutions, the  board reviews each request and  makes its recommendations  directly to the minister.  "This group of volunteers,  which has been meeting regularly since mid-October, is responsible for contributing the sort of  regional business advice that is  helping to encourage as well as  balance   development   oppor  tunities across, our region, '  Veitch said,    y  The minister also announced  that in conjunction with the two  one-year appointments, the  mainland/southwest advisory  board is being expanded from  seven to eight members.  The Regional Seed Capital  Program is province-wide and is  administered by the minister of  state for each region. It offers  guarantees of up to 75 per cent  of a business loan to a maximum guarantee of $50,000.  "This $50 million loan  guarantee program encourages  banks, credit unions and trust  companies to make higher risk  loans   to   established   small  businesses and entrepreneurs  with viable ideas," the minister  said. "The loans are to be  repaid in three years."  In the mainland/southwest  region, 17 proposals have been  approved in the first three months of operation. They are expected to create 133 new jobs.  Mackenzie. MLA   Harold  Education We^k is March 6  Long welcomed Anderson's appointment to the board and encouraged Sechelt business people to consider participating in  the Regional Seed Capital Program.  "Our province's future prosperity is increasingly dependent  on the success of today's small  businesses that are developing  entrepreneurial   activity   in  B.C.," Long said.  Veitch said business people;  and entrepreneurs who are interested in assistance from the  program should contact either  the minister of state's regional  office in New Westminster at  660-9878, their nearest government agent or the B.C. Enter-:  prise Centre at 1-800-972-2255. :  <fe  The week of March 6 to 10  has been named as Education  Week in the province of B.C.  The board of school trustees  of School District 46 (Sunshine  Coast) is celebrating Education  Week 1989 by adding its own  particular theme of 'celebration' to that of the B.C.  Ministry of Education's  'Education! Everyone's Business'  The board of school trustees  strongly believe that education  is everyone's business for 365  days of the year. For this reason  it is also using the period of  Education   Week   to   initiate,  discussions among its district  employees about ways in which  it can improve communication  within the school system and  with the public in general.  From these discussions it is  hoped to develop plans which  will enable the district to  'market' the schools on a year  round basis, not just during  Education Week, says director  David Short.  Some of the events during the  next few weeks in the schools in  the district are:  Book Fai^March 3, Madeira  Park; Scholarship Retreat,  March 3/4, Chatelech; Parent  Computer Workshop, March 6,  Chatelech; Open House, March  8, West Sechelt; Student  Studies, March 9/10, Langdale;  Music Festival (Choirs and  Bands), March 9/10, Sechelt;  Reading Day, March 10, Davis  Bay; Theatre Sports, March 18,  Arts Centre.  During Education Week all  the schools in the district  welcome visitors, as. they do all  year long. A courtesy call to the  principal of the school will  ascertain what special happenings might be on at any time.  For further information  about other events contact a  local school, or the School  Board Office at 886-8811 or  885-787L  .'

The implication was that the previous  council, under mayor Bud Koch, had been somewhat  secretive in its dealings.  Each candidate, including now elected Mayor Tom  Meredith, assured the public at the November candidates'  forum that they would be more open to public input and  more accountable for their decisions.  Within three months of the election, the new council  and mayor have decided that planning committee meetings  are to be held in secret. The public is not permitted to attend.  Representatives of the media are only welcome if they  agree to gag themselves and don't report on the meetings.  It should be noted that under mayor Koch, the planning  committee was designated a committee of the whole.  Meetings were held, in council chambers, every second  Wednesday of the month. Members of the public were  welcome. The media regularly covered the proceedings.  It is the established and accepted practice all over  Canada that such local government meetings are fully  open to media and public.  The justification for the new procedure seems to boil  down to the argument that developers may not feel comfortable coming before the planning committee if they  believe their plans will be made public. However, it is standard procedure, provided for in the municipal act, that  any matters regarding land acquisition can be dealt with  'in camera'.  Any other issues raised at planning committee meetings,  such as zoning change applications, are considered public  domain. Certainly both Gibsons council and the Sunshine  Coast Regional District board have found no difficulty in  handling planning committee meetings in public.  Of all committees of any council, planning has the most  impact on the daily lives of residents in the community. It  is the planning committee which recommends where different kinds of land usage will occur and the zoning that is  necessary to permit any such usage.  While council members argue that the issues are always  eventually brought to council for final approval, the procedure is this: the council meeting opens, previous meeting  minutes are approved, council receives committee meeting  minutes; the minutes are accepted with little or no discussion; the chairman of each committee moves that the  recommendations in the minutes be adopted; there is occasionally some minimal discussion at this point; then the  recommendations are adopted by council.  At the end of the meeting the mayor invites questions  from the audience. Of course few people are aware ahead  of time that an issue affecting their neighbourhood will be  dealt with.  So there is rarely anyone from that area present to question the council's decision.  The media reports the council meeting in the following  week's paper. By that time the decisions are a 'fait accompli'. ^   _,  People may object or hot. But the decision has already  been made without the possibility of representation on the '���  matter.  This is a far cry from the 'more open government' that  candidates promised before the election. This is a betrayal  of every voter who thought they were going to have more  input into council's decisions.  The people beheaded King Charles for his Star Chamber  autocracy. What will they do to Mayor Meredith?  ���?*>���  5 YEARS AGO  Suncoast Breakers Oldtimers returned from the  Powell River Invitational Tournament with the 'C Division title after a three game winning streak.

AlLHENTS 'RI  'BOO  Mainstream Canada  Telephone rate policy  hurts small business  by Ann M. Smith  It's a fact of life in the late  1980s that businesses in this  country, both large and small,  require enhanced access to a  wide variety of telecommunications at, of course, reasonable  rates. The problem is, that  although the technology exists  to offer reasonably priced  enhanced telecommunications  services to all business  customers, the availability of  such services is currently limited  to large businesses only.  According to an application  recently submitted to the Canadian Radiotelevision ariclJ  Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) small firms simply  aren't benefitting from the  many new and varied technological advances. The submission, presented by the Canadian  Federation of Independent  Business (CFIB), concludes that  An Al view (2)  as a result, 'small businesses  have lagged behind their larger  competitors in terms of access  to' cheaper long distance  facilities and enhanced telecommunications services.'  This discriminatory policy,  which is clearly outlined in Bell  Canada's tariffs and by the  regulatory policies of the  CRTC, is hurting our small  business community both at  home .and abroad. Furthermore, say small business  owners, today's overall  telecommunications: costs, now  constitute an increasingly-  significant, portion , of. their  business operation's monthly  bills.:  By blocking small business  access to these new savings, the  telephone companies have effectively put small firms at a  competitive disadvantage with,  not only their larger Canadian  competitors,   but   with   their  competitors south of the border  as well.  It's time, says CFIB, for the  CRTC to step in and start  throwing some of its omnipotent weight around.  For example, most small  firms have not been able to  lower their long distance  telephone costs through the use  of something called 'private line  services' because, they've been  told, their volume of use on an  individual basis is insufficient to  justify the leasing of an entire  private line. '���������--  CFIB's applicatipn calls for  measures that would allow  small firms to enjoy the same  cost savings as large firms by  permitting two or more small  businesses to share the leasing  of a private line. (This is currently forbidden by the big  telephone monopolies and the  CRTC on the basis that it would  reduce their very lucrative long  distance revenues).  Considering there is no  logical reason why small  business should not be entitled  to the same generous treatment  currently afforded their  counterparts in big business, the  proposed changes outlined in  CFIB's submisison are all the  more reasonable. And with the  ovemhelming majority of all  new jobs in this country springing from these very small firms,  the CRTC is all the more  obligated to change the rules so*  that everyone* has the benefit of  an even playing field.  High costs, after all, to this  very vital sector of the economy  will eventually cost us all.  * * * *  Editor's Note: Ann Smith  prepares this column for this  newspaper on behalf of the  Canadian Federation fo Independent Business.  Freedom today is  a sometimes thing  by Harold Blaine  As seen through the eyes of  Amnesty International, the independent international volunteer human rights organization,  Iran is a country of legalized  murder, secret executions,  secret trials and secret long term  jailings.  After our look at the condition of human freedom  worldwide and in one of its  regions, the Middle East and  North Africa, last week, as,  described in Amnesty Interna-'  donal's (Al) 1988 'Report', we  this week look at the Al findings in a particular country,  Iran. We also look at the plight  of an individual denied her  freedom in South Africa.  In its review of human rights  denials in Iran, Al says in part  as follows:  "Thousands of political  prisoners, including prisoners of  conscience, were reports ���- ��r-  detained without trial,  suspected government opponents who were brought to  trial continued to be denied  legal representation and the  right to appeal to a higher  court.  "Torture of political  prisoners remained widespread  and thousands of people were  subjected to lashings and other  judicial punishments which constitute torture or cruel, inhuman  or degrading treatment. There  were at least 158 executions,  although the true number was  probably higher as executions  of political prisoners continued  to occur in secret.  "...many alleged opponents  of the government arrested in  previous years continued to be  detained without trial  throughout 1987 or to serve  sentences imposed after unfair  trials. Some political prisoners  were released under amnesties,  reportedly on condition that  they repented and undertook to  take no further part in political  activity.  "However, many other suspected government opponents  were arrested. In March the  Deputy Minister of Information  announced the arrest of some  700 members and supporters of  the People's Feda'i Organization.  "During 1987 many suspected : supporters of the  People's Mojahedine Organization and other opposition  political organizations were also  detained. Some had been involved in armed opposition to  the government, but others were  believed to be prisoners of conscience. Many were still held at  the end of 1987. Some were not  released despite having served  their prison sentences.  "Political ' prisoners were  reported to have gone on  hunger strikes in Evin and  Gohardasht prisons in protest  against the continued detention  of prisoners after the expiry of  their sentences, the alleged increase in the number of secret  executions, and the persistent  torture and ill treatment of detainees. Similar protest strikes  are reported to have taken place  pi ?

Many were  reported to have been beaten on.  the soles of their feet.  "Former prisoners who left  Iran in 1987 provided detailed  testimonies of torture. Some  were subsequently examined by  doctors who found injuries consistent with their allegations. In  one such case, there was  medical evidence corroborating  a former prisoner's allegation  that torturers using an electric  drill had pierced her ankle and  big toe.  "Thousands of people were  also subjected to judicial  punishments which constituted  torture or cruel, inhuman or  degrading treatment for  criminal offences. In March an  official stated that 4467 corporal punishments were carried  out in the Iranian calendar year  1365 (March 1986 to March  1987) in the Tehran district  alone. Most of these punishments were lashings, but some  victims had their fingers amputated as a punishment for  theft. Similar punishments were  carried out in all parts of the  country.  "At least 158 people were executed during 1987. But as some  executions were carried out  secretly the true number may  have been considerably higher.  Most executions reported in the  official press were of people  convicted of murder or drug offences.  "In a least eight cases, victims were flogged before they  were hanged.

Even they will have to be  careful to hold out for a price  large enough to offset their  taxes, sewer and water hookups  in the interim.  Those people who believe  that Gibsons based taxation of  Howe Sound Pulp is going to  lower their taxes and give them  free city conveniences are in for  a shock. Taxes never go down  except to buy a vote and the  worth of the promise never lasts  the term in office.  Before anyone in Langdale or  Hopkins sees 'Gibsons' services,  it is reasonable to predict years  of taxes will have gone into the  town's general revenue. In the  meantime development will spring up along the service arteries,  changing the landscape, lifestyle  and the lining of a few 'appropriate pockets'.  Your taxes will pave the way.  Meanwhile, the province  loses the responsibility of Port  Mellon and distributing the  revenue. Instead of a province  wide base and a fair averaging  of grants, we become 'fifedoms*  expected to generate and  distribute taxes ourselves in an  economic feast of the fittest.  You can bet the province has  found ways of eliminating jobs  and bleeding taxes and grants  off to their general coffers,  rather than handing it directly  to every town.  A news report stated that the  yearly cost of the Victoria  district highways was $9 million  before privatization and $21  million a year afterward. If  restructuring goes through, such  a hike in road maintenance  would surely eat a large part of  any Port Mellon taxes.  If we swallow that responsibility it will be our debt  forever. If we wait the province  will pay and only it has the  chance of making amends, y  A municipality should grow  by gradual owner assent, riot;  mass engorgement induced by  developer zeal. People and local  governments have to live within  their means. They should not go .  looking for gifts offered by  larger schemers who are only  trying to sherk their own work  load.  A half dozen aldermen in a  relatively dense population  should not have the right to  .decide changes in areas where  they do not have to live and suffer the consequences.  Collins has gone the gauntlet  Editor:  All right already, Mr. Collins. With justification (and a  good reason to have to) you  have 'passed the test', and 'gone  the gauntlet'.  Your credentials are passable.  You're doing your homework.  You're completely above board.  Now, cut the rhetoric and  let's see you and all the other  elected people on council get off  your political platforms. Don't  waste another day or the taxpayers' money that pays your  political wage.  There was no election  necessary to certify Gibsons'  team of officials because there  has been some sort of trust  established by the community.  This means there, is a great  opportunity to increase social  programs, rather than and as  Shouldn't convey  except by tender  Editor:  Several things about the deal  between Gibsons and the  Synetics Corp. involving Char-  man Ridge disturb me.  Firsdy, I don't feel council  has the right to convey town  property by sale or lease by offering and negotiating a deal  behind closed doors without going to tender.  It has been said the property  was put out to tender two years  ago. But that isn't now.when  development is booming and  bears no relation! tonthe current  situation.       >���      ����:,;���:  Council should not hold 'in  camera' meetings except where  staff is involved, in deference to  individuals' right to privacy  when dealing with their  employer.  According to a press report,  the town' administrator stated  the town could make over  $57,000 per year in taxes and  lease payments on the property  involved. Indicating that taxes  and lease payments are a profit  is like combining apples and  oranges.  Taxes are payment for services rendered and do not provide a profit. So the only return  on the lease would be the lease  payments.  There is certainly no publicity  on the return on our invest-  ment,,bejt federal, provincial or  municipal. Are we not .entitled,  to have that information?  The Charman Ridge property  should be put out to tender, not  arranged with someone behind  closed doors.

Let's see some support from  council on innovative measures  to brighten up a youthful community, rather than the ultra-  caution designed to put  everyone into the retirement  home before their day.  Above all, let's see those  committees shine with a few invigorating, creative people  rather than only businessmen  (which is not to say that <  businessmen cannot be inventive, though slightly dull in their  approach to profit).  A rural residents' vote will be  diluted 20 to 100 times by  restructuring. If he lives past  Langdale in Area F, his taxes  will rise an estimated $146 for  no services at all.

In this period of prosperous  growth, perhaps everyone could  benefit besides only those with  money.

That is the proper education  for all kids everywhere!  Edward Graham MacFarlane  Firemen can't  be watchdogs  Editor:  I write in regard to the  editorial in the Coast News of  February 20.  Firstly, I take exception to the  comments regarding masonry  chimneys. ULC Standard 629  'standard for 650 degree C factory built chimney'.  Metal chimneys manufactured to this standard meet all  building codes and can withstand repeated chimney fires.  This metal chimney is far more  economical to install than a  masonry chimney.  I suggest you research your  information prior to presenting  your comments in the newspaper.  As a volunteer fire fighter, I  also take exception to your attitude regarding fire prevention  and the involvement of local  fire departments. Most Sunshine Coast fire fighters hold  full time jobs and volunteer  their time on a weekly basis for  fire practice.  They are available 24 hours a  day, seven days a week at a moment's notice.  During fire prevention week  and other periods throughout  the year, they stress fire prevention including attending local  schools and various associations.  We cannot force people to  take   active   interest   in   fire  prevention in their own homes.  Is it reasonable to expect that as  a volunteer fire fighter, we  should attend every home in our  protection district and inspect  same?  I believe any person on the  Sunshine Coast who is interested in fire prevention in  their own home is able to obtain  any information they require  through various sources. People  are responsible for their own actions.  Local fire departments cannot serve as watchdogs for  society.  R.S. (Bob) Stanhope  they plan to dump more on us.

June Boe  Gibsons  Dear Ms Boe:  Thank you for your letter of  January 4 concerning the  discharge of dioxins from the  Canfor pulp mill at Port Mellon  into Howe Sound.  As you are probably now  aware, my ministry is taking immediate steps to ensure that  pulp mills substantially reduce  the discharge of organochlorine  compounds, including dioxins,  to the environment. All pulp  mills using chlorine as a  bleaching chemical in B.C. were  required to submit a plan to me  by January 30 for reducing the  discharge of these compounds.  Following review of this information, I will set firm  timetables for the upgrading of  each mill in addition to draftin|  new regulations  for the dis��i  charge of organochlorine comj  pounds.

Some  returned home and some have  gone on for a further two-week  holiday to Hawaii, New York,  Toronto, Los Angeles and San  Diego.  The past three weeks have  been full and exciting for both  the host families and the  students. While they were here  the students went bowling, ice  skating, some went curling and  horseback riding.  We spent a very enjoyable  afternoon with the staff and  students of Elphinstone Secondary School. We spent two days  in Victoria, a day skiing in  Whistler and two full days in  Vancouver visiting the CN Imax  Theatre, the aquarium, the  Museum of Anthropology and  the ever famous shopping trips.  Four mornings a week the  students studied Conversational  English from a workbook provided by the company 'One  World Friendship', a non-profit  organization located in San  Diego. The exchange is classed  as a cultural one not a studer  exchange although I understanc  some of the families have made  plans to visit Japan in the  future.  The host families that have  taken students into their homes  both last summer and this past  three weeks have found it to be  a most rewarding experience  and intend on hosting a second  or third student this summer. I  would like to take this opportunity to thank the families for  their support of ths program,  without you it would not happen.  A second group of students  will be arriving on the Sunshine  Coast on March 9. Host  families come from both Gibsons and Sechelt. We use the  facilities at Rockwood Lodge  for the course centre, the  Welcome Party and the  Sayonara Party.  They have been extremely  generous in the hours booked  and used.

And: Japanese appetizers,  were served to the delight of all.  The cultural exchange seems  to have been a great success for  all involved. Twenty-three-year  old Etsuko Suzuki from Tokyo  told the Coast News how much  she'd enjoyed being near the  ocean. But, of course, the best  part was making new friends.  Each of the students is from a  different part of Japan. They  had not met before embarking  on this adventure in the West.  Hiromi, who stayed with  Debby and Scott Jackson, came  from Kyoto. The Jacksons were  enthusiastic   about   the   experience.  Like many of the families,  they are planning on playing'  host to more students in the  future.  "It really brought our family  together," Debby Jackson said.  "We'd" all get together every  evening and do things, like try  origami (folded paper art  work).  "It's really been a good time.  I think everybody has really enjoyed it," she said.  The students departed last  week, but more will be arriving  soon. Coordinator Gail  Sangster anticipates several  more groups this summer and is  hoping to find host families to  accommodate them all.

They look for more support  for the dance on April 1 with  the hot Vancouver band, 'Brain  Damage' because it's no joke,  the community hall is in real  financial difficulty.  Thanks to the Roberts Creek  Legion's bingo donation and  hard work by Randie Tame and  Dorothy Boragno, some of the  necessary repairs have been  made to the hall (plumbing,  stove, fridge and hot water  tank). The electrical system still.  needs work.  They want to insulate and  new siding would make the  place more attractive.  Volunteers are being asked to  pledge time, money and ideas.  The committee is planning a  spring fixup party, personnel  and weather permitting.  They're certainly open to suggestions and advice, as they're  hoping to apply for grant  money.  P.S.

She also described a visit  fronvfwhat seems to be either  evening grosbeaks or pine  grosbeaks.  Seems these birds remained a  day in the area then flew away.  We may have some future birdwatchers as Marg and staff continue   to   make   the   children  aware of their environment.  The visit to the Adult Day  Care on February 15 was a total  success.

CULTURAL SHOCK  A Caribbean Cruise on  holidays included a stop at  Ocho Rios, Jamaica. In  Jamaica it is legal to sell dope or  drugs, but it is illegal to buy  them.  So, the scam is, if you make a  purchase of drugs then the seller  reports the sale to the police and  the buyer faces a fine. The fine  is then split between the seller  and the police.

The three year contract  transferred the maintenance  operations in the Gibsons area  to Capilano Highway Services  Company effective March 1,  1989.  "We are pleased to have this  opportunity to carry out road  and bridge maintenance in the  Sunshine Coast area for the  next three years," said Barry  Drummond, president. "Our  experience in road construction  is of great benefit to providing  i }?-  Happy 16th  Birthday^  -Jenny Mundell1^  __������_____________________i  the   related  maintenance."  "Although the delivery of the  maintenance services has been  turned over to the private sector, the ministry of transportation and highways will continue  to monitor the performance according to strict contract  guidelines which ensure that  current safety and service standards are met," said Vant.  "In the long term, this contract represents the beginning of  a more competitive marketplace  for the road and bridge maintenance services throughout the  province."  A total of 30 highways  employees in the contract area  have elected to join Capilano  Highway Services Company.  District highways offices will  continue to handle subdivision  approvals, municipal liaison,  local highway planning and  construction supervision",  technical services, contract  management and administration. The ministry will maintain  staff at all existing locations to  ensure the public h^s ready access to these services.  The contractor has agreed the  same volume of work will be  subcontracted to small operators through a competitive bidding process, preserving the existing  opportunities  for  local  task of road small business. Existing small  operators currently under contract to the ministry in this area,'  will have their contracts assigned to the new company to ensure continuity.  With the awarding of this  contract, the government meets  a number of key objectives in  transferring highways maintenance work to the private sector.  The total price of contracts  over the next three years is less  than ministry costs for the  delivery of road and  bridge  maintenance services, said the  announcement.  Strict quality control criteria  and enforcement procedures are  in place to ensure current road  safety and service standards are  maintained. Ministry contract  management staff will be  assigned within each district to  ensure all contractual obligations are met, said the ministry.  Existing highways employees  have been offered opportunities  by the new company at their  current salary, position and  union status, it was said.  It's always a pleasure to walk  into our hall for an event and  meet people who have not normally been participating - in  many cases, and new members.  Last week this happened at both  carpet bowling and at Aggravation.  This, of course, js what our  organization is all about. Our  main purpose is to have people,  come out and join in the fun at  times when they most need  cheering up.  Our membership is increasing  steadily. Remember! We have  no age restriction for membership in the branch.  So even though you may not  be able to attend that frequently, your membership support at  this time will serve you well  when you retire and are able to  attend.  EXECUTIVE MEETING  The next executive meeting of  our branch will be held in our  hall on March 7 at 10 am.  Members of the executive  should bring their concerns and  their suggestions to this  meeting.  There will be plenty of  ground to cover so plan to attend and mark your calendars  accordingly.  ERROR  Somehow a gremlin seems to  be at work from time to time,  particularly on dates and phone  numbers. Last week this column  advised there was to be a wine  and cheese party for singles.  The correct date is March 2,  not March 3, which is of course  when the square dancers are  utilizing our hall. There is  nothing I can do in this regard,  other than to apologize for any  inconveniences experienced by  those who arrived on the scene  one day late.  EXERCISES  Last Wednesday morning,  from my vantage point across  the street, I witnessed bur instructor and two participants  arrive for exercises. With four  to six inches of snow oh the  ground, I'm sure most people  who normally attend were getting their exercise shoveling  snow. ?  I very generously offered my  shovel to those who arrived but  had no takers.  CHANGE OF DATE  At the request of the Sunnycrest Mall Merchants  Association, the performance  of our 69ers in the mall was  moved ahead to April 6 at 2 pm.  If any inconvenience was caused  by this change our group offers  its apologies.  CONCERT  Ticket sales are going nicely  for Nikki Weber's 'Night to  Remember' concert.

Someone stole their  sign.  And it wasn't just an ordinary sign. It was created by  well-known artist Doug  Riseborough.  The rest of the work and the  installation was the cooperative  effort of many people in the  community.  The sign was dedicated at a  ceremony attended by nearly  everyone in the area. They want  it back. "'���."���  It belongs in Tuwanek.

The committee will present a  forum to discuss approaches  and lifestyles,which could <pre-  vent individuals and families  from falling into the addiction  trap.  The committee will also  distribute drug and alcohol information to the community. A  'Dear Abby' type column has  been proposed for local  newspapers which would provide specific answers to drug  and alcohol questions.

The dual entry policy, where children can start grade 1 in  either September or January comes into effect for the  1989/90 year. But it probably will not be required until the  1990/91 year.

Hydro  to install  ELECTRIC PLUS  ^eadlde (electric JbJ  Residential - Commercial - industrial  =We are one of the:  Leading  nR ELECTRIC PLUS  Installers  886-3308      Box 467, Gibsons, B.C.  VON ivo  Efficient lletfric Phis Heating  Enjoy modern electric heat  and save up to 50% on fuel costs  Electric Plus is clean, quiet,  versatile and 100% efficient  Electric Plus gives you all the advantages of modern,  energy-efficient electric heat at a saving of  up to 50% on fuel costs if you now use  oil or propane. Your Electric Plus heating  system is clean and convenient, quiet  and 100% efficient. You can choose from  a variety of ways to heat electrically  with Electric Plus, while having oil/  propane, butane, wood or coal as a  back-up heating system.  Supply is limited, so get  popular Electric Plus now.  Electric Plus is offered at the special low  rate of 2.50 per kilowatt-hour (about  half the regular cost of electricity) because  it is secondary interruptible energy,  available only when we have more  water thari we need for basic  commitments. The supply of this  secondary energy is limited to 500  gigawatt-hours, and once this limit is .  reached - expected to be within the next  12 months - no new Electric Plus  customers will be signed up.  ��BGHjdro  DRQUD OFOUR  * JL x.  If you sign up for Electric Plus now you'll enjoy the  benefits of electric heating whenever secondary energy  is available. When Electric Plus is interrupted you *  switch to your back-up system. We expect interruptions  to be infrequent but when one does occur it will likely  last an entire heating season.  Convenient Hydro financing and big  dollar savings.  For most homes, the entire cost of converting  to dual-fuel Electric Plus can be covered  |Yby B.C. Hydro financing. It's available on  approved credit at only 8^2% interest.  �� Contractors can arrange financing, which can  ^ be conveniently repaid on Hydro bills over  Iperiods up to four years.  Your home is probably eligible for Electric  $?lus, unless it already has natural gas service.  If you now heat with oil or propane, Electric  Plus could save you $200 to $450 a year  on space heating, and another $110 to  $130 on water heating if you add it  there too. Heating equipment costs vary  with individual homes and wiring  systems, so see a contractor for specific  recommendations and prices. Or ask  your local Hydro office for our Electric  Plus pamphlet. ~rrr?*"* "'-,' T>M ���^FW'**,' "*** *   ��� jw �����* '      %m - ��� ""7*^ ,. ���!* !"mi"~~'~~|*awwama*wii  ��1tfiffiFilT!^_WH"^^ - -^. it, ^JTTT^r  !��>ifwn(^f''|k',',- **.'> "���"*- "j  8.

Drew is visiting his  ; mother, Ann Knowles and  r sister, Leah, of Cochrane Road,  Gibsons.  Drew has just completed his  first   year   university   at   the  military college, coming 23rd in  standing in a class of 194 cadets.  "I was the top anglophone in  the group standing, and I hope  to keep it that way," Drew said.  For his high academic standing he was awarded the college's gold star, the only cadet  from B.C. to earn one.

He  now wears the uniform of the  Royal Canadian Navy.  "There are four of us from  B.C. still in the program,"  Drew told us. The course is five  years in general engineering or  in some special field like  oceanography.  "My studies may be directed  into oceanography, which will  suit me," said Drew, "since  that's part of meteorology, a  field I want to study  eventually."  The two official languages  are used in turn in the college.  Drew says he really learned to  speak French when he got there,  especially from his two francophone room-mates.  "The four years of French in  secondary school is only an introduction to the language,"  Drew said, "and I'd like people  here to know how important  fluency in both languages is to  be ahead, especially in any  federal service. That's how I've  found it."  Drew spent three years in the  Cadet Corps (Seaforth Highlanders) that is sponsored by  Branch 140 of the Sechelt  Legion.  "Captain Bob Summerfield  was an inspiration to me," said  Drew, "and all of us that knew  him in cadets remember him  with great respect."  This summer Drew will be in  Chilliwack to take basic officer  training at the military base  there.  His   former   classmates   in  Elphinstone who graduate this'  spring have been enthusiastically welcoming him back.  "I'm proud to say that  wherever I go that I'm from  Gibsons. And thanks to my  mom who encouraged me to get  into this program."  GRADS OF 1987  Stephen 'Steve' Christian attended SFU in 1987/88 and  took courses in fine arts, studying video, film production and  visual arts.  "I took one course-in computers, too, and ended* Jhe year  with a B+ average."  Stephen has been woiking  since April inlcoi^triiction, here  on the Sunshine Coast. ' 'Plenty  of work. Have to turn sortie  down when a couple of jobs  come up at me same time:"  Steve, who won the governor-general's Medal and the  Headlands Shield, .and was  awarded one of the Sunshine  Coast Teachers bursaries, intends to continue his studies in  due time.  "I'm considering Cap College's three year course in  graphics design and illustration,  or UBC's architecture  program."  The cougar, symbol at center  court in Elphinstone gym, was  done by Steve this past fall.  "My gift to the school."  Steve tells us that his sister,  Maria, an outstanding coast  volleyball player, will graduate  from UVic this spring.  Shad Light travelled in Mexico for two months after  graduating from Elphinstone.  He has also worked in construction here, and has gone  tree planting in season. "That's  really strenuous work."  Shad has worked too, with  the forestry ministry in a cone  recovery project, and in slash  burning and fire control. "I've  had a good sampling of B.C.  wilderness."  River Light is in the third year  of the theatre and drama program at SFU. She has had summer employment in theatre in  Vancouver.  This last summer she worked  for a company doing a video  commissioined by the United  Church.  Dangerous, explosive and possibly lethal are the construction gun cartridges like these stolen recently  from a work site behind the Cedars on Highway 101 in Gibsons. Parents and children are warned to be  on the lookout for these explosives, says the RCMP. ���Vera Elliott photo  Gibsons Fire Fighters  2 chimney fires  A total of six calls kept  firefighters busy during the  month of February. Chimney  fires had firefighters out twice  during the cold snap early in the  month.  On February 1 a resident  thawing frozen pipes with a  blow torch set part of his home  on fire. Firefighters responded  to the call, however, the resident  had extinguished the fire before  the trucks arrived.    .  A chimney fire that spread to  the house had the department  out in the Langdale area on  February 3. With the  temperature at 18 degrees  Centigrade, firefighters had difficulty in cleaning up and  disconnecting hoses as the extreme cold had frozen all the fittings.  On February 7 members attended to a chimney fire in the  Granthams area. Crews were  just cleaning up from that fire  when a second call came.  Trucks and crew left the  scene in Granthams to extinguish a fire in a trailer in the  Bonniebrook area of Gower  Point.  On February 14 Gibsons Fire  Department received a call from  the Roberts Creek Fire Department to back up their hall as the  Roberts Creek trucks were  responding at the request of the  Sechelt Fire Department to  assist in fighting the fire in the  Bank of Montreal building in  Sechelt. At .5:10 pm Gibsons  sent a second truck to Roberts  Creek and the Gibsons truck in  Roberts Creek proceeded to  Sechelt to offer assistance in the  fire. Port Mellon Fire Department was alerted to back up the  Gibsons hall for the duration.  On February 23 the first of  two false alarms at Gibsons  Elementary had members from  Hope donations will  keep library open  the department out.  The second false alarm at  Gibsons Elementary the next  day indicated that equipment  malfunction was the cause for  the two alarms.  The Jaws of Life were put to  the test on March 2 at a motor  vehicle accident on North Road.  What was originally a request to  wash fuel from the road turned  into a swarm of activity as  firefighters assisted the Gibsons  ambulance crew in removing an  injured motorist trapped in his  vehicle.  During February local  emergency services swung into  high gear with the final phase of  the house numbering program  'Fast Find '89'? All departments  feel the program was a success  and even now are noticing new  building and house numbers going up.  Remember, if your house  number is displayed and visible  -when,travelling in both directions on the road, emergency  services can find you faster.  Gibsons and District Public  Library does not plan to close  for four months starting in  April, library board chairman  Vern Giesbrecht said last week.  "We intend to keep the  library open and we're counting  on more donations from the  public to tide us over until the  referendum is held.  "We have been very  frustrated at the many delays in  getting approval to hold a  referendum in areas E and F.  But we are hopeful municipal  affairs and the Sunshine Coast  Regional District will act on the  matter as quickly as possible.  "Our MLA, Harold Long,  and library services personnel in  Victoria are doing what they  can to speed up the process."  The library board has been  promised by Area E Director  Jim Gurney that the regional  district will lend the library  $20,000 shortly after the  referendum is passed. This loan  will be repaid when tax funds  from a successful referendum  become available in 1990,  Giesbrecht said.  The library at 464 South Fletcher Road is open 30 hours per  week, 12:30 to 8 pm Tuesday  and Thursday, 9:30 am to 5 pm  Wednesday and Saturday.

The late Emma Jan Winegarden, daughter of George and  Charlotte Gibson, founders of  the town, planted this willow as  a little willow whip cutting,  some 75 years ago.  Emma's husband, the late  Arnold   'Chuck'  Winegarden,  sS-^Y^^SffiNj^S^^  was a well known 'water-  diviner' in those days. He often  was called upon by new  pioneers to help find water on  their property, says Violet. He  used willow wands from this  tree to locate water.

ORCA (Ocean Resource  Conservation Alliance) in  Sechelt last week issued the  following statement in regard to  VHSV or the appearance of a  similar virus in the local Pacific  Ocean salmon.  "ORCA, associated groups  and the UFAWU, have consistently expressed our grave  concern over the obvious  likelihood of anti-biotic and  other chemically resistant  bacterium and diseases, etc.,  developing in 'farmed salmon'  and thereby spreading to wild  stocks. This has always been  one of ORCA's main concerns  and this was found to be true  with the discovery of anti-biotic  resistant Vibrio bacterium in  British Columbia.  "Our research and that of  others has always shown the importation of salmonoid (Atlantic) eggs to be an avoidable and  ill-considered activity. Given for  one, the devastating result the  Gyrodactyius salaris parasite  has on juvenile salmon in Norway, this is doubly concerning.  "The discovery of what appears to be VHSV in farmed  salmon and wild coho salmon in  Washington State reflects on  the   inept   decision   making  abilities of the government  agencies responsible for protection and enhancement of our  wild stocks.  "The federal and provincial  governments of Canada and, as  it appears in the United States  as well, have gambled with the  multi-million dollar commercial  and sports fishery by rushing  head-long into the aquaculture  industry. Add the commercial  and sports fishery together with  the present and tremendous  future of the tourist industry  and we find it staggering that  such near-sighted development  of fin fish aquaculture could  take place at all, let alone in the  totally unrestricted environment  that we see today," said the  ORCA statement.

Coast News, March 6,1989  by Peter Trower  Maria Bermudez of Mozaico Flamenco is featured at the Sunshine Coast Arts Centre March 11.  On the Arts Beat  ^mmmmmmmmi^_-n___im~~n.^Hna^^^^^BiH^aMHMHHaH|aHHaM1H  Regional art  entries picked  Some days after the departure of Little Benny, Herb finds  himself contemplating the most  conspicuous safe in Detroit. It  sits smugly in a sidewalk window of Kroger's Department  Store for all the world to see.  On this particular day. the  weekly take has arrived from  the other stores in the chain and  several employees, ignoring the  curious stares of passersby,  cluster around the open safe,  packing its interior with bulging  canvas bags.  Herb Wilson witnesses the  blatant display with incredulity  and mounting irritation. The  impertinence of Kroger's,  flaunting their cash like that!  The arrogance!  It is the most tantalizing,  most ingeniously burglar-proof  situation Herb has run across.  The King of the Safecrackers  becomes obsessed with the  challenge of taking Kroger's  down a peg or two.  Such a task, he has to admit,  will be easier said than done.  Day and night a beat patrolman  regularly passes the window.  At night the window is  brilliantly lit. Two store watchmen check the safe constantly.  The high-profile repository  sits there always in plain view,  literally daring an attack. As  Cox remarked, "It'd be like  pulling a job on a theatre stage  and handing out free passes to  the cops."  Yet, there are loopholes. For  one thing, Cox has reported  that the building has no alarm  .system.  Herb wants to think the proposition over for a few more  days. He needs more information and enlists Helen's help.  The next day Helen Gillespie,  dressed to the nines in a figure-  revealing dress and sporting a  blond wig, sashays into  Kroger's store. Before long she  has struck up a conversation  with an obviously interested  young salesman.  She claims to be trying to  locate a non-existent employee.  Exuding availability, she soon  has him wriggling on her hook.  She accepts his invitation to  lunch. Over the meal she casually proffers the information that  she works as a secretary for a  safe manufacturer.  The talk drifts easily to the  safe in the window. Soon the  enamored salesman is telling her  all Herb needs to know, including the fact the safe is a collection point for all the Kroger  stores in the state.  Herb is delighted with  Helen's information. A plan  begins to form in his mind.  To be continued...  Last weekend at the Arts  Centre, the regional entries for  the provincial 'Images and Objects VII' juried exhibition were  selected by painter Landon  Mackenzie. These will be on  display at the Arts Centre from  ' March 8 to 19 only, so be sure  to visit the gallery during this  two week period.  As a departure from usual  procedure for this exhibition,  many of the works not accepted  will also be hung, which should  allow for some lively discussion  and opinion sharing at the  reception this Saturday, March  11 at 2 pm. All are welcome to  this so come and join in.  Weekly visiting hours are 11  to 4, Wednesday to Saturday,  and 1 to 4 Sunday, closed Monday and Tuesday.

All you Geminis  line up. It's your turn for a kick  at the 'good luck' cat.  Next Sunday, Jupiter, the  planet that promises good  things are coming, rolls into  Gemini. It will slowly amble  through that sign until the end  of July.  It takes this guy 12 long years  to make a complete swing  through all the signs. This  means that spurts of really good  luck may seem to be few and far  between.  But for anyone with their Sun  in Gemini (May 22 to June 22)  this is one of the two luckiest  times in a 12-year cycle.  When Jupiter passes over the  part of the sky where the Sun  was sitting when you were born,  you will find there is a period of  time where things just seem to  fall in your lap.  Opportunities come from the  most unlikely places. But you  have to be open and receptive to  them.  The other group of people  who are likely to enjoy some  pleasant times are those born  when Jupiter was in Gemini at  other times. These include  anyone born: June 13, 1929 to  June 26, 1930; May 27, 1941 to  June 10, 1942; May 10, 1953 to  May 24, 1954; April 23,1965 to  May 5, 1966; and September  1976 to April 1978.  This does not necessarily  mean everyone mentioned so  far is going to win a lottery. Nor  should any of you mortgage  your house to run off to Vegas.  What it means is that between  now and the end of July, each  of you will experience a week,  maybe two, when the things  that come to you can lead you  where you need to go to be  fulfilled.  These opportunities are not  forced on you. They simply present themselves and you are just  as likely vto turn your back on  them if you aren't watching  yourself.  This is the ideal time to sit  down and write out some short  and long term goals for  yourself. Writing seems to help  connect your subconscious and  your conscious mind so that  they're working together.  Then with the general  astrological forecast working in  your favour for the next while,  you are more likely to find the  ways to achieve those goals.  A simple cautionary note - be  careful what you wish for. At  this time, especially, you're likely to get it.  Other than that, enjoy! This  is your time to grow and receive  the bounty of the universe,  without a lot of hard work. You  deserve it.  Freedom today  Jazz and poetry  at Pender Harbour  There was a full house in attendance at the Pender Harbour  School of Music Hall Friday  evening. The atmosphere was  cozy and intimate.  Exotic coffees, teas and  goodies were on sale. A good  time was had by all.  Music provided by the Carrie  Fowler Jazz Quartette was  smooth and easy to listen to. In  fact, it was downright enjoyable.  Theresa Kishkan read a  chapter from her short story  about a winter spent in Ireland.  This was most descriptive of the  dreariness of the countryside in  a bleak winter.  June Harrison of Halfmoon  Bay read some of her poetry  and greatly pleased her audience. One of the hits of the  evening was 13 year old Kelisila  Harrison's readings of some of  her own poetic works which  were remarkable for one so  young.  Ruth Forrester gave a short  talk on the activities of the Suncoast Writers' Forge and of the  coming attractions of the  Festival of the Written Arts in  August. She also presented door  prizes donated by both organizations.  Final speaker of the evening  was Howie White. As well as  reading from his own works, he  gave a rundown of the history  and of the many writers who  had made the Pender Harbour  area their homes and their inspirations.  Master of ceremonies Ken  Fowler gave special thanks to  Myrtle Winchester who planned  events for the occasion.

YY       yy  Continued from page 2  jumped to their deaths from a  cliff after having been made to  choose one from among three  methods of execution.  "A number of people were  executed on account of their  political or religious views or activities. In October the Supreme  Judicial Council was reported  to have approved death  sentences imposed on seven  alleged members of 'athiestic  and hypocritical mini-groups'  by Islamic Courts in West Azerbaijan, Isfahan and Ham.  '. Another six alleged members of  'counter-revolutionary mini-  groups' had their death  sentences approved in  November.  "Four adherents of the Bahai  faith were reported to have been  executed, two in September and  two in March, apparently  because of their religious  beliefs. A further 17 Bahais.  were said to be at risk of execution in November.  "However five of these were  reportedly released on bail in  December. The fate of the other  12 was unknown at the end of  the year.  "Three alleged supporters of  a Kurdish opposition organization were also said to have been  <  executed at Orumieh, after they  had been forcibly repatriated ?  from   Turkey   in   November'  1986.  "Scores of political detainees  were alleged to have been executed in secret. Among them  was a group of 40 allegedly executed in Evin prison for  leading or taking part in  prisoners'hunger strikes.  "There were also allegations  that Iranian government personnel, or individuals acting on  the instructions of the government, had been involved in attacks on Iranians abroad. Iranian exiles were killed during  1987 in Austria, the United  Kingdom, Pakistan and elsewhere.  "Prisoners sentenced to  death by the courts had no right  to appeal to a higher court as required by the International  Covenant on Civil and Political  Rights, to which Iran is a party.  Instead, such 'death sentences  are considered by the Supreme  Judicial Council, a body composed of senior clerics with an  -expertise in Islamic jurisprudence. The Supreme Judicial  Council may exercise the  authority to confirm death  sentences or to refer them back  to the courts for review."  The story of the inhuman  barbarism existing today in Iran  is typical of the stories Al  reports for the majority of the  world's nations.  It is clear from the Al survey  of the state of freedom today  around the world that we Canadians in general are walking  around wearing rose-coloured  glasses. We are unaware in our  daily lives of the precarious  position of our free democracy,  surrounded as it is by a sea of  barbarism and oppression.  There is a very real world out  there which, willy nilly and at  our peril, we have to face.

Y  With romantic music playing softly in the background, we perused the menu by  subdued lighting. Under new Ownership the selection has expanded to 21 exciting  entrees and six appetizers,   y.y y     ,y  To begin, we chose deep fried escargots in. wonton, and camembert baked in  puff pastry with black current saude. The delicately wrapped escargot came with  a rich berhaise sauce and was arranged as a work of art.  '  The camembert in pii'ff pastry was also arranged like a beautiful picture out of  some gourmet magazine, but the taste and texture of this exquisite temptation left  little time for. visual indulgence.  We asked the waitress to serve our soup and salad after the entree to make sure  we had rbbm'for the, main course. *  After a brief interlude to truly relish the lingering flavours, our entree arrived.  It had been difficult choosing from the exotic offerings: shrimp and torteilini in  cream sauce, black bean scallops, Cajun New York, rack of lamb, etc. Guided by  the waitress, Cathy, we had chosen the pork tenderloin Malaspina and the  supreme chicken grand marnier.  The de-boned chicken breast was covered in a rich sauce, served on a bed of  delicately sweetened rice. The aroma, texture and taste made each bite an experience of pure joy.  My partner's pork tenderloin was cooked to perfection, stuffed with prunes,  covered with a black current sauce. A sample bite confirmed his claim that this  food was fit for the gods.  Both entrees were accompanied by equally delicious servings of parsnips (which  I always thought I'didn't like) and carrots, prepared in a way that made them a  wonderful new taste adventure.  yes we were stuffed, but we just had to see what chef Jim Lincez had accomplished with the soup and salad, in keeping with the gourmet quality of the  rest of the meal, the Manhattan dam chowder was spiced to perfection and loaded with fresh tender clams.'  The salad came with a house dressing, Irish Mist Vinaigrette and was, of  course, no ordinary tossed salad. Red peppers, broccoli, sunflower seeds, mixed  with lettuce and red cabbage, were lightly covered with the sweet/sour dressing, y  Not enough to intrude on the taste of the salad, but to subtly accentuate it.  j ^raSe foe*1 Prices do not include liquor  \IC.HT ON' I HI   U)\\\  Creek House - Intimate dining and  European cuisine in a sophisticated yet  casyal atmosphere.

Eleven teams in all participated including two teams  from Powell River and two  more from New Westminster.  Local teams included 2nd  place Gibsons Building Supplies, Roberts Creek Mutts,  Roberts Creek Gumbooters,  Cedars Pub, Sechelt, Ken Mac.  and Ken's Lucky Dollar..  Seems there's a few volleyball  nuts in this area!  A second division : round  robin went into action Saturday  morning, February 25, and  finished early Sunday afternoon  with the two top teams from  each group advancing to the  semi-finals.  Finalists from GBS included  Ghislain Daem, Murray  Wilson, Sue Brown, Neils  Payne, Gordon Stevens, Don  Matsusaki, Sara Bennett and  Wendy Wray.  Sechelt was represented by  King Kong, Mike Manion, Son-  ja Jorenson, Sila Webb, Steve  Partridge, Dave Macdonald and  Chatelech Paula.  The other divisional champs  were both from Powell River.  Coast Cycle disposed of  Sechelt during the first semifinals two games to one, while  GBS fought off Powell River's  second team, setting up the  North versus South final.  GBS won the first match  quite decisively but.the black  bikers grew stronger and  pressured GBS in the second  and third matches.  "We ran outa-gas," stated  head spiker Daem. Murray  Wilson had to be pried from his  office chair with a crowbar  Monday afternoon, he was so  stiff.  In general a very competitive  tournament which featured a  trememdous group gathering of  local volleyballers, all helping  each other out so as to  guarantee fair play.  Special thanks to the  Beachcomber girls squad,  Elphinstone senior and junior  girls, Trevour Anderson, Roger  Douglas, Jan Ritchie and the  many others who helped make a  great weekend of fun for locals  and visitors.

The sixth annual Suncoast  Cup has come and gone. What  a party it was!  Oldtimers playing Canada's  fastest game...at a slower pace  than they might like, met old  friends and made new ones. A  comment from a local player  who was playing in his first ever  Oldtimers tourney was how  friendly, but competitive, the  games were.  He was surprised at the level  of the play, but also, how great  it was playing totally new faces!  While hockey was the focus,  probably the highlight was the  first ever Sportsmen's Dinner.  A superb evening of enter-  ment with loads of prizes, lots  of John Revingtpn food, dinner  music of a classy Ken Dalgleish  variety...and to top it off, a  $500 grand prize winner named  Greg Phelps.  Ask him...he thought it was a  great night! Jim Young and  Dune Wilson related stories  from their respective careers  -very enjoyable! All in all, a  super night hosted by the  Breakers, one that will be looked forward to with anticipation  next year.  This year's hockey was easily  the highest calibre of any of the  previous years. With three new  teams, the quality of play improved dramatically.  The Suncoast Breaker Dream  Team went winless, but had a  couple of super games in the  process...losing 1-0 to the tournament funners-up North Shore  Drillers, and losing an exciting :  4-3 game against the Spring  Chickens.  Highlights of these games  were watching Jim 'Dirty 30'  Young play a different game,  and ex-Canuck netminder Dune  Wilson score a goal while playing centre! The Suncoast Ghost  Breakers fared only slightly better winning just one of their  round-robin games 5-2 against  Kerrisdale.  It was the North Shore Warriors for the Canfor trophy, and  the equally strong North Shore  Rusty Gulls for the prestigious  Suncoast Cup - defeating the  Drillers from North Vancouver  5-2 in the best final of the day.  To all fans and players and  businesses who hosted our  weekend guests, another round  of applause for a tremendous  weekend of Suncoast Cup  Oldtimers hockey. Well done!

You are all asked to sign up  for the season well before that  date to give the committee time  to organize or whatever it is  they do.  The men will start play on  Thursday, March 23 at 8:30 am.  All players are reminded to bring their wallets and lots of cash  for sign up and seniors dues.  These will probably be the usual  $20, but it is not certain at this  Youth soccer  time.  Dot Utterback is I/C ladies.  Glen Marden, Art Mann and  Dave Hunter are taking over the'  seniors men, from the now  famous Art Kiloh, Jim Nielson  and Jack Ross trio, who by the  way may never be forgotten.  By the way, I expect you all  know by now.that 'golf is a  curious sport whose object is to  put a very small ball into a very  small hole with an instrument  ill-designed for the purpose'.  Fact - there is no shot so simple that it can't be messed up.  Well, I guess parents of youth  soccer players can't complain  about soccer taking up all their  Saturdays in our second half of  the soccer season.  If we're lucky our year-end  tournament won't be snowed  out. The year-end tournament is  Saturday, March 18.  In the nine years the youth  soccer has been around, this has  got to be the worst season for  game cancellations. Hopefully  next year will be better.

"The golf course is an important tourist attraction for  Pender Harbour and the  region," said Long. "I am very  happy the government can assist  this club."  Bill Reid, minister of tourism  and provincial secretary joined  in the announcement.  "This award includes assistance to purchase four power  carts," added Reid, minister  responsible for the fund.  "These carts will assist the  many elderly green-fee players  and casual golfers who find it  difficult to get around the  course under their own steam."  The golf course was constructed three years ago with  assistance from the province's  Expo legacy fund.  *******************  ^ Sunshine Coast ^  ^ Figure Skating Club ^  A Presents... ^  ICE FANTASY 'Hii<*  *  UPON  A STAR  X       March 12. 1989       1:00     pm & 3:30 pm  ~ Sunshine Coast Arena  ^Tickets  Available   at  Zippers,  The  Bulk  Food  Store,   Willees  Family  ^^Restaurant, from Club Members, at the Arena or at the Door.

At that  meeting a schedule will be arranged which will allow  the greatest possible number of groups to play on  the fields.  by Myrtle Winchester, 883-9302  Some questions to consider  about the restructuring of Gibsons to include Langdale:        ,;  1. How would the SCRD  compensate for the tax base lost  from Howe Sound Pulp and  Paper iri Langdale if that  revenue went to a new and improved and expanded Gibsons?  2. Would the taxpayers of  Pender Harbour accept another  increase, or would they think  about forming their own municipality?  3. What would happen to the  SCRD if both Gibsons and  Pender Harbour restructured?  4. What kind of provincial  funds would be available to the  SCRD if it lost Langdale, and to  Pender'Harbour if it became a  municipality?  I don't know the answers, but  it makes for good after dinner  conversation. The interesting  thing is that no one seems to  know the answers.  The reason seems to be that  no one has conducted a proper  study   to   look   at   all   the  possibilities.  WIN THE BUNNY  This year the Easter Bunny is  going to find a home in Pender  Harbour. If you'd like a chance  to win him (or is it 'her'?), plus  a big basket of other Easter  goodies, come in to the Pender  Harbour Chevron and fill out a  free entry form.

But  the effects of this disease touch  one in three Canadians through  friends or family members who  suffer with it.  On the Sunshine Coast a support and education group called  'Friends of Schizophrenics'  recently received official  recognition as a branch of the  provincial organization. There  are 15 full members.  Schizophrenia hits males between the ages of 17 and 23 and  females between the ages of 23  and 29. It can have a devastating affect on family and  friends, partially because of the  stigma attached to the word,  president Julie Skippon told the  Coast News in an interview last  week.  A pamphlet provided to each  new member of the support  group outlines what schizophrenia is, and is not.  'Schizophrenia is caused by a  combination of genetic and environmental factors. It is not  caused by problems of parenting; communication problems  between parents and their  children; childhood trauma;  social problems (such as poverty); street drugs or alcohol by  themselves; or by the  schizophrenic's actions or  failures.  'It is a disease of the brain in  the same way diabetes is ��� a  disease of the pancreas. Schizophrenia is a biological illness.'  The symptoms of schizophrenia can vary, but include  an abrupt change of behaviour,  withdrawal, hallucinations and  delusions. A schizophrenic, until treated, may have episodes of  psychotic behaviour that come  and go.  Right now, schizophrenia  cannot be cured. But it can be  treated and in many instances  kept under control.  According to Skippon, of the  people who suffer from schizophrenia, one third will have  only one episode and never have  another. One third can be  treated with drugs and live a  relatively normal life as long as  they maintain medication.  One third cannot, right now,  Egmont News  by Phil Mtincaster  We certainly have had a mix  of news lately, also a variety of  weather, some of which we  could well have done without.

Hurry up and get mended up  Elvida, we need you on the ball  club this year.

I'm happy to say that  Vera's stay was brief and she is  now home and feeling fine.  We all extend our best wishes  to Don and Bill. We hope they  will have a speedy recovery and  be able to come home soon.  Saturday night, February 25  was a^gala night at the community hall for the celebration  of the Egmont Lions Club  Charter Night meeting. Many  were in attendance, some from  Vancouver.  All enjoyed the excellent dinner and the dance that followed,  and the breakfast Sunday morning at Ruby Lake Cafe.  Sunday afternoon, many  friends gathered at the community hall to attend Mrs^Pa^  Vaughn's, 'going a\yay party';  Pat has lived here for 43 years  and is much loved for her many  kindnesses to young and old  alike.  She now has a new apartment  in Sechelt's Greenecourt and  will look forward to visits from  her Egmont friends. Happy  times, Pat.  The Egmont Thrift Store will  be open all day Wednesdays  upstairs in the community hall.  Also, the anrtual meeting of the  community club will be held at 7  pm, Wednesday, March 15 in  the hall.  be helped.  An increase in awareness of  the disease has seen UBC  receive $1 million to help fund  research into schizophrenia.  On Tuesday, March 7, CBC's  Man Alive will be showing  'Shattered Dreams', a National  Film Board production exploring the effects of schizophrenia  on the family.  Directed by Calgary Filmmaker Wendy Hill-Tout 'Shattered Dreams' is an emotional  , journey through the experiences  of one family forced to deal  with the tragedy of schizophrenia in a loved one, not  once but twice. The Martini  family of Calgary lived through  the turmoil of losing their  youngest son Ben to schizophrenia and eventually suicide,  only to discover six years later  that a second son, Liv, has  developed the disease.  'Shattered Dreams' shows  how schizophrenia imposes  itself not only on the victim, but  also on family and friends. It  points to the urgent need for  public educational programs to  deal with the illness.  Locally, the Friends of  Schizophrenics group will be  holding a workshop March 15  with local agencies. They are  putting together an education  program to be used in the  schools.  The group meets once a  month/Anyone wishing more  information is invited to call  Julie Skippon at 886-3534.

The project was carried out  by the ministry of environment  in cooperation with Western  Pulp Limited Partnership's  Woodfibre Mill program to  restore the species to the  Mainland. The eight female and  one male elk were captured near  Qualicum Beach February 11 ���'���*  and released near Pender Harbour the same day.  "Western Pulp has made this  program possible, and we can't  thank them enough," said  wildlife biologist Bob Forbes,  the ministry coordinator of the  transplant.  The mill provided funds to  construct a corral trap to capture the elk, and paid for the  transport of the animals from  Vancouver Island to the release  site. Forbes estimated the pulp  company's donation would exceed $1000.  Forbes also praised  volunteers from . the Sechelt  Peninsula and Comox Valley  recreational clubs- who assisted  in the transplant arid subsequent monitoring of the new  herdv:.  The; ministry is involved in a  program to restore B.C:'s. indigenous'j- animals to rangeland  their ancestors once occupied.  The restoration .involves  transplanting wildlife from  remote areas to restored habitat  in developed regions.  "Transplants help offset the  impacts of man, and enhance  and replenish wildlife in areas it  has traditionally occupied,"  said Ray Halladay, deputy  director of the wildlife branch  who oversees the provincial program.  Human impact denotes  everything from forestry and  overhunting to effective forest  fire control, which has impeded  nature's way of replacing old  growth with lush vegetation of  which some animals depend.  Before any transplant,  biologists must determine that a  need and a benefit exist, that the  transplant is technically s6urid,Y  and that the relocated animals"u  will not conflict with other  species.  The Woodfibre-sponsbred  elk transplant marks the rebirth  of a herd that was wiped out  nearly 100 years ago due to  unrestrained hunting and logging. Only on Vancouver Island  has the Canadian Roosevelt elk"  survived to this day.  The transplant was the third  in a program that began in  1987. To date, 23 animals have  been released on the Peninsula.  A number of calves have  been born into the transplanted  herd. Forbes is confident the  herd will soon be self-  sustaining.  "No further transplants into  this area should be required. In  a few years, natural production:^  will expand the local herd size to  around 50 animals.  "Until then, we will be watching the herd very carefully  and keeping our fingers  "crossed," Forbes said.  u'~ The elk transplant is one of  many wildlife relocations  around the province that represent a major component of  B.C.'s wildlife management  program.  Transplants began in B.C. in  the 195p's. But not until 1982,  when the Habitat Conservation  Fund (HCF) was created, was  the ministry able to implement a  coordinated province-wide program. ,  The HCF, the result of a  special levy on hunting and  fishing licences, now raises  nearly $2 million annually, and  covers most government funding of transplants. Outdoor  recreation clubs and other  groups, such as Western Pulp,  also donate timei money and  equipment to local transplants.
