Array w  I  i  $  i  I  ��  lil,  '.*"<  Tl  watet  ding  Legislative Library  ParHren.B��i��togs  Victoria, B.t^ >OT  90-8  _...wi ivandy  Tancock, of Fisheries and  Oceans, Madeira Park, "this  should be a good year for the  salmon."  The Fisheries Branch has  been keeping count of how  many salmon actually come into,  the mouths of local major  creeks each year for the past 20  to 30 years. Tancock states the  count is "not always totally accurate for several reasons, one  being that sometimes the  salmon don't always come up  far enough to even be seen."  Most of the salmon that  spawn on the Sunshine Coast  l which come  ks when they  , five and  _...~._uic_ even six years old  when they return. The Pinks  return in two years and the  Chinook from three to seven  years.  The following is a breakdown  of returning Chum in some of  the major creeks on the Sunshine Coast:  Chaster Creek: 1985, 200;  1986, 100; 1987, 30; 1988, 200.  Roberts Creek: 1985, 2000;  1986, 1000; 1987, 150; 1988,  750.  .  Wilson   Creek:   1985,   350;  1986, 495; 1987,400; 1988, 500.  Chapman Creek: 1985, 325;  1986, 1050; 1987, 150; 1988,  500.  Wakefield Creek: 1985, 225;  1986, 18; 1987 - no count was  taken; 1988, 30.  The 1989 count is not yet  complete. Fisheries officers will  be making at least two more  counts this fall.  According to Ross Squire,  also of Fisheries and,Oceans,  "this type of fluctuation is normal", as some years there could  have been a flood or drought at  the mouth of a creek, either  enhancing or deterring the  Chums' spawning chances.  A drought in the fall of 1987  apparently is the reason for the  low count that year. Extremely y  low water levels prior to mid-  November caused salmon to i  perish at the mouth of most  creeks.  Also if the salmon were overfished four years previous, then  there wil! be a low count that  year.  Bill   Chinnick   of   Soames  Creek Hatchery has been actively   involved   in   the   Salmon  Enhancement   Program   since  the fall of 1980. In 1985 Chin-  i nick says in a letter to the Coast  'News,   "we put  2500 Chum  .salmon fry into Charman Creek  next   to   the   marina   which  previously was a dead creek."  ���In 1988 he counted 40 Chum  salmon in this creek and so far  this-year the total is 50.  ���   At the hatchery the fish have  a fin;clipped to identify them  ; when they return to spawn. Ten  such  Coho were caught and  identified this year in Chaster  Creek. Only one wild Coho was  spotted.  When talking to the Coast  News* Chinnick sounded-very  optimistic about the program at  the hatchery. He stated that this  year's count at Soames Creek  has so far totalled five Coho, all  -hatchery returns, and 15  Chums.  As Chinnick says "it would  have been a dismal day without  the hatchery returns." Obviously the Soames Creek Hatchery is  doing a very effective job.  Fisheries Officer Randy Tancock would like to give the  public a warning that Chum,  Sockeye and Pink salmon are  protected salmon and it is an offence to fish or snag one of  these salmon after they are in  non-tidal waters. It is however,  legal to fish Coho and Chinook  in non-tidal waters.  At Roberts Creek there are  paths that you can walk along  from the new bridge at the  mouth of the creek. If you stand  quietly for a few moments, at  the edge of the bank, you will be  rewarded when one or a group  of salmon suddenly splash  about in their craze to rush and  spawn.  It's sad, though to see the  deteriorated state they end up  in. They are not a pretty sight.  Their undersides have big  yellow blotches and their fins  are half gone. Their last breath  seems to be agony but at least  they've spawned and started  new life.

That's the conclusion of a  November 7 report of the  school's Parent Advisory Council which wks presented to  Education Minister Tony  Brummet during the minister's  recent visit to officially open  Halfmoon Bay School.  "The minister said our school  is high on his priority list but  there's only so much money to  go around," says Lynne  Munro, an executive member of  the parent advisory group.  Since 1987 the parent advisory group has had a close  dialogue with School District 46  about overcrowding at the  school which was built in 1948,  according to district records.  ' 'Our main concerns are safety and the growing population  of the school," Munro says.  And overcrowding is expected to get worse. "There's a  lot of new faces and younger  families around Pender Harbour these days."  The parent advisory council is  critical of a recent condition  survey of the school done for  the school district by a Burnaby  consulting firm. An incorrect  construction date of 1957 was  used as a standard and therefore  only visual and cursory inspections were carried out, parents  claim.  Munro says two years ago  some renovations were done to  the building but quite a bit of  rotten flooring and other problems were ignored.  The consultants conclude that  due to the building's age and  changing code requirements,  the building requires upgrading  to its fire alarms, power, com  munications   and   lighting  systems.  Because of the overcrowding  situation throughout this year  the decision was made to move  the Grade 7 class to the Pender  Harbour High School. Notes  the parents' report: "Not only  does this detract from the total  numbers of elementary students  in the school but it introduces  both Grade 7's and 6's to levels  of maturity some of them are  unprepared for."  Last year unexpectedly large  enrollments and late registrations led to re-organization of  all the classrooms, grades and  staff, "giving way to a situation  that completely rescinded any  attempt to deal with the overcrowding situation," the report  notes.  In September of this year an  old portable from Halfmoon  Bay School was installed on the  playground to deal with the intense overcrowding in the  lower primary grades.  "With the community growing like it is what are we going  to do, bring in another portable  or move the Grade 6's up to the  high school?" Munro asks.  And the problem can only get  worse, the parent advisory  group warns. After consulting  with realtors, general contractors, several businesses, the post  office, government and the  newly-formed Pender Harbour  and Egmont Chamber of Commerce, the opinion is that there  were many young families moving to the area and that popular  tion is increasing in general.  The parent group concludes  that numerous building code  violations and overcrowding  make the school unsafe and  "not conducive to learning."  Munro says because space is  so cramped staff are constantly  being snuffled from place to  place. "The staff room is a  cramped and extremely uninviting area that affords no comfort during stress release times,"  notes the report.  Enrollment is currently 187  students. Munro says if Grade  7's are included, the school  more than qualifies for a full  size gym, two more classrooms  and an activity room.  Although there is the equivalent of nine and one half  teachers, the staff room accommodates only six persons at a  time. The staff room is also used as a part-time classroom,  part-time counselling area, sick  room and science and music  storage area.  The unisex washroom is also  used as a change room  for  teachers   preparing   for   PE  Please turn to page 11  by Dave Fraser  A referendum will be held on  a proposed civic centre in  downtown Sechelt with a  separate ballot on whether to  give Branch 69 of the Senior  Citizens Association space to  build an activity centre on the  site.  The referendum was narrowly approved after a tempestuous  meeting of Sechelt District  Council last Wednesday night.  Initiating the storm was  Alderman Doug Reid who  made a motion to render "null  and void" council's offer of a  building site to seniors for $1 a  YY  year,oyerya 99 year lease.  ,' " , Reid said sini��e council didn't  properly approve the offer, it  therefore constituted a "non-  offer" to the seniors and should  be withdrawn.  Although the offer was  unanimously agreed on by the  five aldermen during an in-  camera meeting Reid said it was  not moved, seconded or voted  upon as required by the Municipal Act.  Reid said he first learned the  mayor had been authorized to  send an August 29 letter to the  seniors to commence negotiations when he returned from  holiday and read the minutes of  the October 4 council meeting.  He noticed the offer, along with  three other resolutions concerning other matters, had not been  moved, seconded or voted upon  by council.  Section 232 of the Municipal  Act reads: 'An act or proceeding of a council is not valid  unless it is authorized or  adopted by by-law or resolution  at a meeting of council'.  Sechelt Administrator Malcolm Shanks called council's  decision a "technical oversight"  which occurred late in the evening. "If you take the letter of  the law it would require a  resolution to do any action at  all," he added.  "If he's got some dirty linen  to launder, why did he have to  do it in an open council  meeting?" said Mayor Tom  Meredith in response to Reid's  explanation that he raised the  issue as "a housekeeping item".  "He should have come to me  before the meeting and had a  word," Meredith told the Coast  News.  "The mayor has made .a  public issue out of this by  writing the letter on August 29  to the executive of Branch 69  making a proposal," said Reid.  "He also made a presentation  to approximately 200 members  of the branch. If this isn't a  public issue I don't know what  'Is':"    ������'������'��� ���"   - ;���;_j^?-���������������������-<���-  Said Meredith: "I was given  100 per cent authority to  negotiate with the seniors. But  that doesn't commit us (council)  to anything. Nothing has been  finalized."  Voting in favour of Reid's  motion, which was seconded by  Alderman Bob Wilson, were  Aldermen Joyce Kolibas and  Reid. Voting against were  Alderman Wells, Graham,  Shanks and Wilson.  Reid said it was financially irresponsible to offer district property to a specific interest  group, "even if we have special  privileges to use the hall." He  said a number of meeting halls  are already available for use by  the district. Reid added that any  facility located on Block 7  -which he called the district's  "best piece of real estate"  -should produce revenue to offset the expense of building a  pfoposedyldsure centre.  Although Mayor Meredith  said he didn't want to debate in  the newspapers the virtues of  having a seniors centre on Block  7 he said it fits well with the  civic centre concept as being the  focal point of the community.  Watershed logging  is cause for concern  by Rose Nicholson  Madeira Park Elementary students crowd into computer space in  the school's library. ���Dave Fraser photo  Public concern over plans by  Jackson Brothers to log in the  Gray Creek and Chapman  Creek area prompted that company to invite Derek Bonin of  the Greater Vancouver Regional  District (GVRD) Water District  to address the Forest Advisory  Committee meeting on November 13 in Sechelt.  The area that Jackson  Brothers plan to log is in the  watershed of the Sunshine  Coast Regional District (SCRD)  and local environmentalists are  expressing serious concern that  this will cause a variety of problems* such as a diminished  quality of the local water supply, erosion and despoiling of a  prime recreation area that is used by hikers and cross country  skiers.  Bonin's talk outlined the stringent regulations that govern  logging in the GVRD watershed.  The prime consideration is  water quality. All phases of the  logging operations are judged  by the effect on the watershed.  All logging shows are 'patch  logged', that is, logged areas  alternate with areas where the  timber is left standing until the  logged off areas grow back,  then the timbered areas are logged, usually 10 to 20 years later.  Strips of standing timber are  left along streams and around  lakes. Clear-cut logging is done  only on the flat or gently sloping areas of the valley bottoms,  while helicopter or balloon logging on the steeper slopes protect those areas from slides.  Slash burning and spraying  with herbicides and pesticides is  prohibited.  It was found that naturally  reseeded areas ran heavily to  hemlock, which was susceptible  to disease, so now logged areas  are replanted with a mixture of  yellow and red cedar and fir.  Logs are sorted on a dry land  sort and the waste is trucked to  a land fill site in the Fraser  Valley.  There is no public access in  the watershed area, and all  employees must have regular  health checks.  Bonin conceded that the  situation in the GVRD watershed is unique. Some time in the  early 1920's the area was logged  and then designated for Vancouver's water supply. Government legislation gave the Water  Board absolute authority over  the area. Area D Director Brett  McGillivray pointed out that on.  Please turn to page 20  v>  i  !,'. I -s^^-^^w^^y  ���U.-._  -.T*/"-"'-?-^--^-  #  *  ~J:  -r.-T-. .-���! V-T#= .-���!��� r-Jt-ufcT^v  2.  Coast News, November 20,1989  to speak, out  We were assured, were we not, when we joined the  free trade pact with the United States and again assured  more recently when our government decided to join the  Organization of American States, that these moves  would in no way diminish Canada's ability to speak  with an independent voice. The terrible and tragic  events now unfolding in El Salvador would seem to indicate that now is the time for the Canadian government  to assert its independence.  The murder of six Roman Catholic priests almost certainly at the hands of the government forces gives further point to the mad folly and complete and bewildered  failure of the policy in that country of the United States.  The priests were murdered because they were seen to  be sympathetic to the guerrillas. Their crime was to be  aware that the terrible poverty in El Salvador amongst  the people to whom they ministered was caused by the  iron lock on virtually all of the land in that country by a  small largely white oligarchy.  That oligarchy has clung to power through its use of  murderous death squads and military repression of the  most brutal and depraved sort funded by the USA  because they were 'anti-communists'.  We have seen that General Noriega in Panama can go  from being a golden-haired anti-communist to a brutal  thug and drug trafficker in recent versions of the  American view. Surely, the time has come for a similar  honesty to appear in the perception of the leaders of El  Salvador.  If the Canadian government can bring itself to make  this point on the international stage, those of us who  despair over the virtual loss of this country's independence and the tarnishing of an excellent international reputation might be given new hope.  5 YEARS AGO  A young mother and her eight-year-old son are dead  and a community is grieving after a fire in Lower Gibsons last Thursday morning. Thirty-one year old Susan  Joan Lane and Clinton Lane died in the fire which  engulfed their home at 1270 Dogwood Road. (See page 2  for more.)  Foreshore leases, a 'lingering' by-law, the downtown  revitalization plan and an application for a recreational  vehicle campsite were all items up for discussion at the  November 14 Gibsons Planning Committee meeting.  The break and entry of an unoccupied house located  in Selma Park was reported on November 10. It appeared that several persons entered the house, had a  party and left.  Continued interest by the regional directors of Areas  B and C in studying the possible amalgamation of their  areas with the village of Sechelt has resulted in the formation of a 'restructuring committee' ostensibly to be a  fact-finding mission and to look at the pros and cons of  such a change.  Voters in all regional areas except Area A (Pender  Harbour-Egmont) voted in favour of dog control in the  regional district in the unofficial referendum conducted  last Saturday.  The question of access to the Gibsons by-pass via the  Sunnycrest/Mahan Road has moved into the political  arena from the technical at the Gibsons Planning Committee meeting on November 14.  10 YEARS AGO  R. Lorraine Goddard and the marina are winners in  Gibsons elections. The Gibsons Marina vote was 505 in  favour and 270 against. In the regional district incumbent director Charles Lee withstood a strong challenge  from Ed Nicholson.  20 YEARS AGO  The Pollution Control Board has advised Gibsons  Council that its application for a permit to go ahead  with its sewer system has been turned down.  30 YEARS AGO  During the course of his dedication address at the  new Legion social hall in Madeira Park, Canon Alan  Greene disclosed that his retirement, after 48 years of  service on the Columbia Coast Mission, was due at the  end of the year.  40 YEARS AGO  Wilson Creek seeks the support of its residents for-  the construction of a Wilson Creek community hall.

A couple of weeks ago, a  woman came into the office  with a letter to the editor the size  of a small manuscript and proclaimed herself, "a Protestant  born but born again Christian".  She wanted to know why she  couldn't tell the world about it  through our newspaper and  what kind of pagan was I  anyway to be filling the pages  with columns like Rhythms of  Life and stuff on Celtic music  and such like.  Well, an argument ensued  because, for a moment there, I  forgot my own good advice on  never even beginning to discuss  any subject, least of all religion,  when the person you're talking  to has fire in his eyes and a  finger pointed in your direction.  Anyhow, to make a long  story short, according to this  woman's criteria nobody but ,a  very chosen few will ever make  it into heaven. In fact, it sounded as if she'd be the only one  there which would effectively  render heaven into hell, I  thought.  In   one   fell   swoop,   this  woman heaped all "heathens",  (including Catholics) and  everyone else on the face of the  earth, into one pile of insidious  sin as far away as possible from  the pearly gates. And, she swept  away all their gods with them,  including, and she was very emphatic about this one, Mother  Nature.  She said there was no Mother  Nature. Now that's insulting,  and, as a new theory just  published could very well prove,  it might not be true.  One of the world's leading archaeologists, Lithuanian-born  Ph.D Marija Gimbutas has just  published a book entitled, The  Goddesses and Gods of Old  Europe. In it she asserts that the  original cultures of southeastern  Europe were not, in fact,  warlike and aggressive -but  ��arth-centred, egalitarian and  non-violent. _���;  Religious practices were a  veneration of both the universe  as the living body of a Goddess-  Mother Creator and of all the  living things within it that partook of her divinity. The wor  ship of a female deity meant the  culture revered all attributes and  functions considered female,  namely birth, fertility, nurtur-  ance and a harmonious interaction with nature.  Gimbutas points out that  because these cultures were  matristic, (meaning female-  identified or centred and not  matriarchal or female-  dominated), they were an  organization characterized by  the concept of balance rather  than domination. Men and  women lived in harmony and  the emphasis in relationships  was on partnership, not  domination.  According to Gimbutas, it  wasn't until around 4400 BC,  when the marauding and  patriarchal Indo-Europeans  swept down from the north to  destroy these proto-European  ^peoples did the violent societies  that have characterized Western  civilization ever since emerge.  If Gimbutas is right, then  perhaps humans weren't always  the awful, destructive creatures  we  are  now.   And  if com  petitiveness, brutality and injustice are comparatively recent  developments in human nature,  there is perhaps hope that we  can effect the changes so  desperately needed in our society in order to curb or, at least,  slow down the present suicidal  destruction of our planet.  To do so, of course, we must  stop treating the earth (Mother  Nature if you like) with such  contempt. We must also stop  treating each other as the enemy  and start co-operating regardless of the differences in race,  gender, nationality or gods.  The message of Gimbutas'  book, mythologist Joseph  Campbell said, "is of an actual  age of harmony and peace in accord with the creative energies  of nature, which, for a spell of  some 4000 prehistoric years,  anteceded the 5000 of what  JameisYJoyce has termed the  'nightmare' (of contending  tribal and national interest)  form which it is now certainly  time for this planet to wake."  Gimbutas' message is, in fact,  one of hope.  In a nutshell  Greenhorn in the bush  by S. Nutter  Surrounded as I am in Gibsons by stalwart veterans of the  'real' woods, the BC woods  where the trees are trees and  working slopes can come at 60  degrees, you'd think I'd shut up  my mouth about my own  minuscule experience in the  bush north of Sudbury.  However, for students of the  ridiculous perhaps, herewith a  few notes.  We need not go too far into  the reasons for my being there.  Suffice it that a writing assignment collapsed with me on the  road and next to zilch in the  bank. Unloading this woe to a  chap in the pub, I found him to  be the son of the owner of a logging camp 80 miles north. No  problem said he. Get yourself  rigged out like these fellows we  see around, get to the bus at  noon and I'll give you a real  job.  He managed to keep a  straight face through all of this.  "Still, he was clearly surprised  to see me, wearing the right rubbers, a well used-looking parka,  and knowing how to roll my  outer pants. He almost ignored  me and I took the cue and  myself said practically now. It  was easy to fit the prevailing  mood, one of an almost communal hangover.  I'd been in a couple of these?  camps, interviewing people for  my late assignment, so was nof  surprised by the red hot oil barrel stove in the sleep camp, or  the tropical atmosphere lent by  the steaming felts from the rubbers and long unwashed long-  johns.  After   stuffing   myself   at  breakfast at their groaning but  speechless board, I sat on my  bunk   and   waited   for   what  would come. Old Henry came,  an old guy, gnarled, rather twisty but spry. He had an odd way  of hoarsely kind of hollering at  you. "Well m' sieu' he hollered,  'you are going to come with  me.* And mostly I was with  Henry for the next five months.  He was, I found, an old retainer of this family operation,  with  them  since  oxen  days,  retired, now back in the bush  'for his asthma'. He had also  store teeth which didn't fit too  well, so he mostly kept them  clenched, and it was this, with  the heaving of the asthma, that  gave his speech the character of  something hailed at you across a  river.  First I was 'fetch and carry'  for a job he was doing: making  a two-stall movable barn (on  skids) for horses in the bush.  They were still skidding with  horses. The timbers for this  were very rough, and all he used  were axe, saw and plumb.  He measured by axe handle,  chanting une, deux, trois etc.  (and missing out a number it  might be), but it was un-  mistakeably a little barn on  skids as I watched it pulled  away and it stayed together.  Next he said there'd be a couple of odd jobs. 'First, m'sieu  the lake, for the h'ice to make it  firm. Then the hill at night. Yqu  don't mind, you, the woods at  night?' Well, I said I didn't.  The lake for the ice to make it  firm entailed my rousing before  dawn, harnessing a horse who  never got to like me, driving it  some miles through an almost  constant snowing at that time,  attaching a log at an angle  behind the horse, and driving it  all day, in concentric circles,  round the lake. Extraordinary  job. We were of course packing  down the snow so the ice  beneath would thicken faster.  This was the lake on which  they'd pile the logs in the winter  drive. But all day every day,  round and round behind the unfriendly horse, with the snow  falling like the end of Joyce's  'The Dead' Mesmeric.  The hill was just that. The  drive had begun, and trucks  began to crawl through the  night, two sleighs of logs snaking behind. But there was this  hill, iced for the sleighs, but too  steep for the trucks on the ice.  The solution was me, keeping a  fire going halfway over a pile of  sand all night, and every once in  a while dribbling a little hot  sand in the tracks up and down.  Brilliant of course, but in the  execution something weird.  Outside the trucks, and there  were nights of no trucks, there  was absolutely nothing out  there but me and my little fire,  and nothing to be heard but  wolves and coyotes, and cracks  and rustlings in the trees about.  I found that I was not a trapper  type, mad or otherwise. I used  to sing, carry on dialogues,  chant poetry.  At the top of the hill, well out  of the firelight, 'Like on that on  a lonesome road doth walk in  fear and dread, and having once  turned round walks on and  turns no more his head, because  he knows a fearful fiend dost  close behind him tread' could  have real effect.  After the odd jobs I went  with Henry for the rest of my  time, walking through the days.  They had him cruising about to  the various camps keeping an  eye on things, and me with a  double bit clearing axe, I guess I  was just along in case he fell  down and couldn't get up.  I was in reasonable shape,  but at the end of one of these  days I'd be just barely keeping  up. What came to rather irk me  was that sometimes he'd have  his wife, his third, much  younger, at the Company  House. You arrived at this  camp downhill, which could be  nice; but the minute we'd appear at the top of the slope she,  the wife, would come busting  out the door and come running  up to meet him; and he, ancient  and indeed impaired, would  break into a trot or gallop, leaving me to drag my derriere to  my bunk.  Sometimes now when there's  talk of burned out loggers I'll  get a flash of this scene on the  inner screen: the old boy, arms  outstretched capering down;  and she running up crying 'Ah,  mon oncle, mon oncle'.  ggjjA  .BLUE'.  SiRBON  AWARD  Your community's      ^  AWARDA/VINNING^>  newspaper Coast News, November 20,1989  Editor:  Lately I've been reminded  many times about the booming  economy on the Coast. It seems  that a good economy these days  still translates as a 'chicken in  every pot' to the voting public.  This false sense of security  breeds complacency. You can  be sure -that our provincial  government is basing its reelection hopes on this assumption.  '.': In 1986 we sent a message to  the world that BC is open for  business. Meanwhile we tell  purselves that while we can be  sold (piecemeal to the highest  bidder), we cannot be bought.  (That is, we won't compromise  our uniquely West Coast  values).  We are too willing to compromise our values when it  comes to making a buck. A  good example of this is what  happened after the Exxon  disaster at Valdez, Alaska.  The first few days after the  worst oil spill in American  history, there was a strong  unified reaction from outraged  Valdez residents. This all but  disappeared   after  Exxon   of  fered unholy amounts of money  to any local wanting to work  cleaning the beaches.  There was also a lucrative  market giving room and board  to the hoards of southerners  who came to Valdez in the  weeks following the spill. In effect, the short term economic  benefits silenced most of the  protests, splitting the community and making it weak.  It seems to me that something  similar is happening here in  Howe Sound. Right now, over  $1 billion is being spent to expand and upgrade the Howe  Sound Pulp and Paper mill.  Once the new mill is finished,  the production is expected to  double while the number of full-  time workers rises only slightly.  This will create extra revenue  resulting in either higher wages  for the employees or greater  profits for Oji Paper. Somehow  the latter seems more likely.  Meanwhile over 1000 new  employees, most of them temporary, are being paid big  money to work everyday in an  environment that will probably  affect their long-term health.

Back to our booming local  economy; much of it is due to  these 1000 or so temporary  employees spending their  paycheques on the Coast.

David McGregor  ���        Save Howe Sound Society  On logging roads  Editor:  I have done a great deal of  hiking on the Sunshine Coast,  13 years to be exact, and eight  of those years were spent living  right in the wild. From my experience of living where a lot of  people only go for a weekend  stroll or a Sunday drive in the  family four by four, I've  become aware of a problem that  not too many people seem to  know exists. I suppose the  reason is that they, in  themselves, are not the problem  as much as where they go and  who follows them...I'm talking  about the logging roads.  Logging roads (as the  logging-outfits will be quick to  point out I'm sure) are good access for people who are interested in the back woods and  yet don't have time to cover it  on foot. I've been hiking along  and have had people stop and  ask me directions and such  which doesn't bother me in the  least, in fact I like to see people  interested in the woods. On the  other hand I've damn near been  hit by 'Yahoos' who like to exercise their right to drink and  drive on the off roads and think  it's funny to throw beer cans at  hikers.  It's unfortunate but they're a  lot of those types and not much  can be done about the damage  they cause. One example is the  old Tetrahedron warming hut  on the north side of  Elphinstone, a place my wife  and I remember fondly as. ;Our  honeymoon suite. Wedon'L.go  to visit it anymore because it has  Germans  suffered  Editor:  Don't you think the time has  come that not only the infamous Berlin Wall came down,  but also the one-sided historical  analysis of the 'monstrous  crimes in our monstrous century'?  As James Bacque reveals in  Other Losses, the German people, too, had to suffer badly at  the hands of their adversaries  -one million deaths alone in the  French and American camps.  The unnecessary terror bombing of Dresden, an open  undefended city without military value, resulted in the loss of  about 350,000 lives of innocent  men, women and children, close  at the end of an already decided  war.  Many more cities in Germany  were reduced to rubble. The  fatalities are estimated at one  point four million people.  During the expulsion of 15  million Germans out of their  century-old homelands in  Poland, Czechoslovakia and  Hungary, three million died of  cold, starvation and cruel annihilation.  All this is way in the past.  There is a lot to forget and  forgive, on both sides.  Let us be open minded, fair  and compassionate towards  each other to build a better  world, together.  Christine Kluge  Bland  helped  Editor:  We thank Doctor Bland for  sponsoring us to attend the  Rainforest Benefit at Hotel  Vancouver on Saturday, November 18. Your generous donation made it possible for us to  experience such a rare event.  It left us Elphinstone students  with a strong feeling of commitment to help save the rainforest,  and we will share that feeling  with other students and  members in the community.  Derek Adams  Tosha Silver  Kim VanSwieten  been continually ransacked and  it really bothers us to see it.  The last time we drove there  only to find the place gutted and  the stove smashed to bits with  beer cans scattered round  about. On other occasions these  same type of individuals have  taken a dozen beer, emptied out  the contents and then to test  their skill as marksmen while  under the influence, set the cans  up as targets on a tree that had  fallen over the road. Their line  of fire was going right down the  road way...God help anybody  who happened to be coming up  it at the time.  . One sure fire way to stop  these offenders is not to put a  road into an area where you  don't want them. Areas like the  Chapman Lake watershed  region where logging itself  should not be allowed. Any  77 hiker that has been in there will  tell you there's not a beer can to  be had and every campsite has  been left neat. Logging will be  part of the damage caused; the  road they put in will bring the  rest.  For those who enjoy that  region, it's a pleasant hike and  and that hike regulates the type  ;   of  individual   who   goes   in.  There's,   one   thing   about  backpacking and that is that  you're not about to carry any  more weight than you need to.  What is more, people who put  forth the effort to go to places  of such beauty, pack out their  garbage to,he)p see that it stays  t Jth__t-���.way,. I; realize that,not  ���a>. everybody has the time tohike  Linto such areas, but they should  make time...it's well worth the  planning.  I have been thinking that I  would enjoy guiding people,  who are able, for a few days trip  into the area. Right now I could  do so without worry for I know  what I would find upon getting  there. If a road were put into  the area I doubt that I would,  for it would be much like the  old warming hut; you'd never  know what awaits you.

The proposed development,  which would be situated adjacent to Farnham Gardens off  Shaw Road, would comprise 42  apartment units intended for  "established clientele", the project's architect Richard Williams told council.  Because of the "lack of  view" of this particular site,  Williams said, the developers,  .Rickland Holdings Ltd., were  not looking at the upper end of  the market. ^y  "But what we won't have,"  tf  ATTENTION  Commercial  Clam  Fishermen  Public Meetings To Present The 1990 Intertidal  Clam Fishing Plan Will  Be Held:  November 29,1989  Lund Community Hall  Powell River  At 1:00 PM  November 30,1989  Marina Inn Resort  Campbell River  At 10:00 AM  December 1,1989  Westerly Inn  Courtenay  At 10:00 AM  December 4,1989  Tally-Ho  Nanaimo  At 10:00 AM  ������I  fisheries  ���iKd Oceans  Peches  el Oceans  he told council, "is young people as they won't be able to afford the units."  According to Town Planner  Rob Buchan, the proposal  meets the requirements of both  the Official Community Plan  and the Multi-family Residential Zone 2 (RM 2) by-law  although a rezoning of the property would have to take place  as it is now in a Comprehensive  Development Area (CDA).  Buchan also stated that  although a public hearing on the  rezoning could be waived. by  resolution of council, "due to  the contiguity of the 'Poplar  Lane' subdivision to the south  and the adjacence of the 'Davis  Road' subdivision to the west,  (both single-family residential  areas), I would recommend that  a public hearing should ��� be  held..."  Because the only entrance  and exit to the proposed  development is via Shaw Road,  there was some concern expressed at the meeting that the  already congested intersection  at Shaw Road and Highway 101  would be adversely affected.  Williams said this was not the  case.  Although council seemed to  agree this was "a good  project", Buchan said: "We are  being well supplied with houses  for the mid to high income  bracket but not for the lower or  first time buyers. The needs of  these groups are not being  met."  Mayor Strom agreed. "We  are soon going to have to face  that need," she said.  The required Zoning Amendment By-law will be drafted and  drafted and forwarded to the  next council meeting for introduction and first reading, the  by-law will be referred to the  Ministry of Transportation and  Highways for comment and a  public hearing will be forthcoming after receipt of the  ministry's comments.

"Due to liaison between the  architect and the town," Town  Planner Rob Buchan stated in  his report at the November 14  Planning Committee meeting,  "our customary concerns have  already been addressed by this  application for a new motel  which proposal now meets the  criteria of the Official Community Plan and the relevant C2  section of the zoning by-law."  The motel was described by  its architect as being similar to  the "Best Western" motels: interior courtyard with swimming  pool and spa, a cafe primarily  for guests and perhaps a news  agents and gift shop.  The architecture, he said, is  "small scale", with a "home-  type, domestic atmosphere".  The rooms will average around  $59 per night.

II  i bx- Coast News, November 20,1989  erans to Davis  by George Cooper, 886-8520  The congregation of the Sunshine Coast Lutheran Mission,  which has been holding its services for the past six years in St.  Hilda's, Sechelt, has moved to  its new place of worship, St.  John's in Davis Bay.  The building in Davis Bay has  been purchased from the United  Church congregation, which requires a larger building for its  growing numbers. The United  Church congregation expects  construction of a two-storey  building at the corner of Simpkins and Davis Bay Roads to  commence January next. In the  meantime both congregations  will share St. John's.  One of the Lutheran congregation said that a Sunday  School of over 15 children had  begun this fall and enrolls three  to 14-year-old youngsters.  There has been a number of  pastors serving the Sunshine  Coast each for a brief period,  but now the Reverend Frank  Schmitt will serve on a permanent part-time basis.  Pastor Schmitt grew up in Illinois, attended Pacific  Lutheran Seminary in Berkeley,  California, and has been pastor  of several churches in Canada.  In April last year, Pastor  Schmitt retired after 30 years in  the ministry. His most recent  charge was Shepherd of the  Valley Church in Langley. He  has been pastor of churches in  North Vancouver and in  Regina.  His wife, Jackie, said they  hope to build a home here on  the Sunshine Coast and have  been looking at building lots  this fall.  A member of the Sunshine  Coast Lutheran Mission told us  that their teachings and form of  service is very similar to that of  the Anglican. Moving their  place of meeting to Davis Bay  has seen the congregation double in numbers.  A Madeira Park couple, Ed  and Gwen Hawkins, attend services in Davis Bay. Gwen  prepares and publishes Esprit, a  national bi-monthly publication  of Evangelical Lutheran  women. She told us, "I was in  Namibia this past September as  an ecumenical observer of the  preparation for elections there.  We were there at the invitation  of the Council of Churches of  Namibia."  Pastor Schmitt may be reached this week at 885-2374 or you  may leave a message at  885-9219.  The   congregation   invites  anyone who does not have a  church home to take part in this  developing ministry.

Although it's understandable, it's really false economy: like saving money by  not changing the oil in your car. Today, the most practical and economical  approach to dentistry is preventive. With regular checkups, cleaning, fluoride  applications and oral hygiene instruction, problems can be avoided or treated  at a very early stage. The costs involved with these procedures are very low in  relation to the price of neglect  This can be illustrated by considering an individual tooth in various degrees  of breakdown and the resulting costs of treatment. Fees quoted here are only  approximate and will vary with the difficulty of procedure, the time required,  material costs and laboratory charges.  The lower first adult mol ar erupts at about six years of age. B ecause it has deep  grooves on the surface and comes in at such an early age, it is highly susceptible  to decay. But this can be prevented with daily brushing and flossing, fluoride  applications and a sealant Sealants are clear, hard plastic coatings which, when  painted onto teeth when they first erupt, are effective in preventing decay. Cost  = $15 pier tooth.  If the tooth isn't sealed and plaque can't be controlled, the biting surface will  develop a cavity. At this stage a small filling is necessary. Cost = $42.  Most decay in adults occurs between the teeth, and can only be prevented by  regular cleaning with floss. Treating this type of cavity is more difficult and  requires more time and, of course, a higher fee. Cost = $56.  If greater breakdown occurs, a full crown may be required to prevent breakage  of the fragile tooth. Gold alloys are used most often due to their excellent  strength, durability, finishing characteristics and resistance to corrosion. Cost  = $470Y  At another stage of deterioration the pulp of the tooth may become infected.  Pus forms in the pulp chamber and will cause acute pain when the infection  spreads to the bone around the roots of the tooth. The tooth can be saved with  root canal therapy, whereby infected debris is removed from the root canals  which are then filled with special materials. The lower molar generally has three  or four canals, and the involved procedure usually requires multiple appointments.  Cost = $377.  Teeth that have undergone root canal treatments are usually badly broken  down and quite weak due to the large amount of destroyed tooth material. The  dentist may recommend a reinforcing post in the tooth root, plus a full crown.  Cost = $550.  Removal of the tooth is required if itcannot be saved. Leaving the space vacant  can cause further problems; treatment usually advised to replace one tooth is a  i fixed bridge supported by crowns on the two adjacent teeth. Cost = $1400 to  $1800.  Looking over these figures, you can see that it's possible to spend a great deal  of money repairing or replacing even one tooth. Taking a positive approach to  preventing dental problems with regular professional recalls and excellent  home care can help avoid these problems. Remember, there are 31 other  permanent teem besides this first molar!  This column, wriuenby B.C.dentist Dr. WilliamMcNiece, is reprinted courtesy of Todays  Health.

"When I have the narrative  thought out," said Tom, "I lay  out the slides that are likely to illustrate it best."  From family albums in the  community and from other  sources, Tom makes the slides  and when narration and music  are on tape co-ordinates them  all in one computerized program.  "The whole presentation is in  sequences," said Tom, "like  chapters in a book."  The November 11 service  with the Elphinstone band in attendance and Reverend Alex  Reid officiating was attended by  nearly 400 people.  The motto 'If you cannot  remember, think', calls for a  postscript to our Remembrance  Day: 'How can we make sense  of a war that left 55 million  homeless...?' Of the chilling  memories of such devastated  places as Dresden, Stalingrad,  London in 1941 and a host of  others? Destruction wreaked by,  both sides.  And in our own Canada the  malevolence to those of our  fellow citizens deported to internment camps, all in the name  of a war emergency.  The sorrow and bitterness  lingers. Know about this, you  young folk, and work to  ameliorate the prejudices, and  the blame, that falls upon the  innocent after a war ends.  This is your burden in maintaining the peace.  Earthquake  memories  by Dick Kennett  It was an act of God and San  Andreas Fault but from the  rubble of San Francisco's recent  upheaval, an early tale rises  from the chronicles about  Madge Whitworth Newman's  double life in California.  As a young lady on doctor's  orders, her family sent her to  CaUfornia^ du^to- health  reas ons; ��� ���������." "���' '-":" ��� ���p::-yi "'.  A far cry from Crowe Road  in Roberts Creek, Madge used  that 10 year hiatus to further  her education and upgrade her  skills in the business field and  the arts.  ' It was in Santa Barbara she  experienced her first earthquake  with plenty of magnitude and  crumbled buildings and guards  protecting against looting.  On her return to the homestead  in   1935  Madge  found  newly  planted  eastern  maple  trees around the perimeter of  East Roberts Creek School at  Orange Road. School Trustee  Jim Leek had seen to their plan-   ���  ting in 1927 to commemorate   ~  Canada's 60th birthday when a  *  coin was struck, which I now  view, and the treasure of those   ',  maples still exist for all to see.  Some years later, on the mor- '  ning of Sunday, June 23, 1946,  the earth shook again to a  magnitude of 6.3 off the Campbell River/Comox/Courtenay  area.  I was stationed at Comox  Airport. The concrete taxi strip  in front of the control tower '���<  rolled in swells, the five storey  wooden tower swayed but held  fast as the radio operator on the \  fourth floor dodged his wheeled  typewriter as it careened on the  shuddering floor.  Outside the second growth fir  trees shook like mops and there  was a sound of low rolling  thunder and you could hear Mr.  Smith's cows unsettled bawling  nearby.  The weather of fice barograph  needle had recorded wildly this  unfortunate event and throughout the region chimneys were ;  down and local governments  placed a priority on re-building  them.  It was an act of God too; this  devastation occurred on a Sun  day for the main public school  in Courtenay saw the large central brick chimney collapse.  Had it been a school day surely  there would have been a loss of  children.  The only tragedy in our  abode was the collapse of the  wife's rising bread - flattened  like pancakes!

To me that doesn't make  much sense. That's the same as  saying that, if you could see  them, the dioxins in Howe  Sound really do look awful but  they're not as bad as they look.  Tell that to the fishermen.  Do EC's forest companies  really think the public is naive  and stupid enough to believe  such a statement without question?  Take a ride up the B&K Road  in Roberts Creek some time.  There are many scattered patches of clear-cut on this road  and its side-roads in different  stages of ugliness. I thought  there was supposed to be a 25  foot buffer zone on either side  of a creek. The ones I've seen  look to be about 10 feet with a  thin row of scraggly young  cedars already falling into the  creek to choke it later on.  But let's not allow this to  upset us too much. Did you  know that there are some really  beautiful old growth firs about  two miles up this same road that  you can walk to and among in  about 10 minutes? I've done it  many times, just to look at theniY  in awe or maybe just to make  sure they're still there.  These huge firs are scattered  about 50 feet apart along a  trees  ravine and creek. Some of them  are leaning towards the creek.  They are so tall you can't really  see the tops in the dense forest.  They are so huge in circumference that you can't put your  arms outstretched around half  the girth of one of these giants.  They also bear the burn  marks from the fire of the early  1900's. It would take an expert  to tell their age but I would  make a guess at close to 150  years. Why were these trees  left? Were they also part of a  buffer zone? Or were they too  big, even at the time the rest of  this area was logged, to be  taken? Or perhaps only cedar  was logged in this spot.  Take a ride or hike up the  B&K. It's one of our last  beautiful spots in Roberts Creek  and even on the Sunshine  Coast. But try to see the beauty,  young and old, and when you  see a patch of clear-cut, try to  look at the good points, if there  are any.

Rob Buchan  MUNICIPAL PLANNER & APPROVING OFFICER  IBI_E_____:  a  "���v     .sVStA  ___���-.,>, For NDP leadership  Coast Nev/s, November 20,1989  by Dave Fraser  Federal NDP leadership candidate Roger Lagasse hasn't let  his lack of funds or political  prominence slow him down, y  Lagasse, a French Immersion  primary school teacher at  Sechelt Elementary, just completed nearly two months on the  road where he spoke at 18 NDP  all-candidates meetings from  Victoria to St. John's, Newfoundland.  Lagasse is currently on unpaid leave from his teaching job  and admits his undertaking has  been financially difficult. His  campaign budget is less than  $10,000 - $2500 of which went  towards his registration fee.  That's peanuts compared to the  budgets of the six other candidates vying for Ed  Broadbent's job.  To cut down on expenses  Lagasse travelled by van with  his four-person entourage, staying in the homes of NDP'ers  along the route.  His criticism of his party's  big-spending style - staying in  the sumptuous Hotel Vancouver, for example - struck a  positive chord in some of his audience, especially at the Victoria  all-candidates meeting, Lagasse  explains.  Lagasse says leadership candidates should band together on  a single bus tour instead of flying all over the country. This  would not only save the party a  half million dollars, he explains,  but would also tie in with the  party's policy on protecting the  environment.  Lagasse, \vho moved to the  Sunshine Coast just over two  years ago, is the only Francophone leadership candidate  and the only candidate to campaign in rural Quebec, where he  says he was well received.  He feels the NDP should concentrate on smaller centres  because people there are a lot  more interested in the issues and  candidates receive more publicity than in urban centres.  In spite of the media perception that the slate of candidates  lacked outstanding personalities, Lagasse says the all-  candidate forums were packed.  Although he admits to being  "a long shot", Lagasse says he  is serious about winning the top  NDP job. But he feels getting  his ideas across are equally as  important as winning. He says  the plight of the world's  children is the single most important motive in seeking the  party leadership.  He bases his philosophy on  the United Nations Declaration  of the Rights of the Child,  which is 30 years old this year.  "The rights of the child include the right to peace, security  and a clean environment.

Ltd. to operate a Licensee Retail (Cold Beer and Wine)  1 Store, conforming to all rules and regulations of the Liquor  Control and Licensing Act at the site of Gilligan's Pub,  1298 Toredo Street, Sechelt, British Columbia.  A Licensee Retail (Cold Beer and Wine) Store is a licensed  establishment through which a hotel or pub operator may  retail beer, wine, cider and coolers for off-premises  consumption between the hours of 9:00 am and 11:00 pm,  , Monday to Saturday and 11:00 am to 11:00 pm on Sunday.  A referendum is being held between Dec. 4 to Jan. 2,1989.  All persons 19 years of age or older whose principal  residence is located within a half-mile radius of the site are  eligible to vote. Each business (represented by an owner or  manager who is at least 19 years of age) whose premises  fall within the referendum area may cast one ballot. Under  no circumstances may a person cast more than one vote.  All ballots are confidential and in normal circumstances  -will be seen only by Pannell Kerr Forster and the Liquor  Control and Licensing Branch.   ~  . There is a 30 day appeal period from Jan. 3 to Feb. 1,1990  immediately following the deadline for the receipt of mail-  in ballots. During this time the Liquor Control and  Licensing Branch will investigate any complaints received.

"Unless we begin. to live  within our ecological budget  our children will have to scratch  out their living on a barren  globe. We must act now to  restore what has been taken and  to make our economic activity  harmonious with our natural  environment."  Lagasse says the lack of consultation on the Meech Lake  Accord was something you'd  expect back in the 1930's, not  the 1980's when we have the  technology to consult everyone." He criticizes the agreement, which seeks to bring  Quebec into the Canadian Con-  sitution, for failing to include  native   Indians   as   one   of  Canada's founding people.  "Meech Lake puts a lot of  power into the hands of the  premiers but not in the hands of  citizens."  He adds that a referendum  should be held on the accord  which, he admits, very few  Canadians understand.  Lagasse says his chances  would be improved if delegates  went with an open mind to the  national NDP convention in  Winnipeg, which starts in less  than two weeks.  A coffee house fundraiser for  Lagasse is being held at the Sunshine Coast Arts Centre on  November 24 at 7:30 pm. The  event is open to the public and  live guitar music will be provided.  Roger Lagasse, candidate for the federal NDP leadership, just  returned from a cross-Canada series of all-candidates forums.  The Sunshine Coast primary school teacher is off next week to the  party convention in Winnipeg where the winner will be chosen.  ; ��� ���Dave Fraser photo  mi  Davis Bay News ��f Views  A good turn-out  lovely   and  Market and  many other  by Jean Robinson   885-2954  The November general  meeting of the Davis  Bay/Wilson Creek Community  Association had a good turn  out. Judy Cbtterall was  welcomed as new treasurer as  Ed Cuylits had to resign.  Mike Shanks gave a brief talk  on the subject of the Davis Bay  waterfront and read letters from  concerned citizens.  We were then treated to  "Harmony", the trio consisting  of Lynn and Reg Dickson and  violinist Michelle Bruce. The  beautiful harmony of the  Dicksons plus the subtle violin  counterpoint kept us all enthralled.  From the toe tapping 'Home  for Christmas' and heart rending 'Friendship', to the funny  words of 'Plastic Credit' and  'Housecleaning', these clever  people had us all clapping for  more. 'Mystery parcels' by  Michelle was  nostalgic.  These cassettes are available  in the Peninsula  Pharmasave plus  outlets. Just ask for the  Christmas cassette. A great gift  idea and displays some of the  super talent that abounds here  on the Sunshine Coast.  BRIDGE  Bridge at the Bay/Creek Hall  begins at 12:30 pm now on  every second and fourth Fridays  in the month. Hopefully. this  will continue at that time until  the New Year then it possibly  will return to the old time.  Please tell everyone about this  new time.  GENERAL MEETING  The annual general meeting  of the Sunshine Coast Cancer  Society is tonight at 6 in the  regional office, Royal Terrace,  Sechelt. Please attend.  Refreshments after the meeting.

Clean out those  closets now and phone.  STORY HOUR  There will be no Story Hour  for pre-schoolers and their  Moms in December.

(See story.) ���Dave Fraser photo  SHOP LOCALLY  Hiu-nmingbirds that summer  on the Sunshine Coast are  assured of at least four acres of  their southern habitat thanks to  the efforts of students in 10  local schools.  For several months the  students have been recycling  paper. They used the 105 dollars  they earned for the sale of the  paper to buy four acres of rainforest in the Sian Ka'an Reserve  in Mexico, which is the winter  destination of the hummingbirds that are seen here every  summer.  The project was initiated by  parent volunteers Denise  Lagasse and Cecile Godell.  "We hoped that within our  schools," Lagasse said, "we  could set a fine example for the  community and involve the kids  with the idea that if there's a  problem in the world we can do  something about it. We thought  that buying the rainforest was a  unique way of starting the project off."  "We are experimenting right  now," Godell added. "We are  certain that in the future, paper  recycling will have to be a part  of organizing and maintaining  any school office."  Lagasse and Godell presented  ?

"All of us (administrators  and mangement) are very supportive of what this group is doing," commented District  Superintendent Clifford Smith.  "Even if there is some minimal  cost to the board, there is  benefit back to the community  from what the children learn.  There's certainly a strong feeling coming from the schools  that this is important."  Trustees generally approved  of the project but Chairperson  Maureen Clayton and Trustee  Al Lloyd expressed some concern that the project would  overload an already very busy  teaching staff.  '"I     strongly     support  recycling," Clayton said. "I feel  that, as an individual, this is my  responsibility and I feel that it is  terribly important the students  are taught individual responsibility, and all you're doing is  wonderful.  "But I don't support it any  further. I think it is an individual and community responsibility.  "I hear the other side of it.  We don't have a lot of storage  space in our schools and we  don't have a lot of people running into Vancouver with trucks.  I don't think this type of thing  needs to go that or,e step further."  Al Lloyd agreed. "I don't  think it would be fair to ask  teachers to accept one more  task," he said. "They have  enough on their plate right  now."  Trustee Lynn Chapman  pointed out that teachers involved with the recycling project  are doing it on a voluntary basis  and the board was not suggesting that it should be a compulsory part of their regular  duties. jj  "The board should generally  be looking at environmental  issues and how they relate \.o\  education," added Trustee?  Shawn-Cardinall.  After further discussion the  board voted to support the pro-H  ject and directed the manage-1  ment staff to investigate ways to S  assist the project. j  "We're trying to find a way {  of transporting the paper/  without a lot of time and  money," Smith said. "We feel  if we can do this, and I think we  can, this is a really good learning experience for the,  children."  Sechelt Seniors  Program for seniors  by Larry Grafton  In the second issue of the  federal government publication  Seniors' Guide to Federal Programs and Services, there are  many interesting seniors' programs discussed. Since a great  percentage of u. are concerned  with the Old Age Security program and what can happen to  our pensions, pro and con,  under certain conditions, I will  elaborate a little on the program  for those of you who did not  send for the booklet.  You may be able to receive an  Old Age Security pension in  Canada if you meet the following conditions:  1. You must be a Canadian  citizen or landed immigrant 65  years or older.  2. You must have lived in  Canada for at least 10 years  after reaching age 18.  You may be able to receive a  benefit even if you are living  outside of Canada if you can  answer 'yes' to the following  two questions:  ? 1. Were you a Canadian citizen or a legal resident of  Canada when you stopped living in Canada?  2. Did you live in Canada for  a total of at least 20 years after  reaching age 18?  Canada has reciprocal social  security agreements with a  number of countries, a list of  which are in the booklet, which  means that persons who have  lived or worked in another  country might be able to meet  the basic requirements for  benefits in Canada, or in the  other country.  There are* sections on the  Guaranteed Income Supplement, Spouse's Allowance and  Widowed Spouse's Allowance  which could be of interest to  some of our members and may  even be advantageous to some.  These are programs that  seniors have paid for many  times over during a working  lifetime so members should not  hesitate to investigate them.  For those who have contributed to the Canada Pension  Plan in at least one year, you  are entitled to receive a retirement pension based on the  amount you have contributed to  the plan. The plan provides for  not only a retirement pension  but survivors benefits,  children's benefits, disability  benefits and a death benefit.  The above is a very limited  resume of only a very few of the  programs and benefits available  as listed in the booklet. Your  copy   may   be   obtained   by  writing to: Seniors Secretariat,  Health & Welfare Canada, Ottawa, Ontario Kl A 0K9.  GOVERNMENT SUPPORT  Through communication  problems it seems that our  branch was the last to know that  we had been awarded an additional $100,000 by the provincial government towards our  new activity centre. Although  we do not have written confirmation to date, we have been  assured in a phone call from our  MLA Harold Long, that we  have been allotted the additional $100,000 from GO BC  funds which is in addition to the  $300,000 grant from Expo  Legacy.  Along with the cash we have  accummulated in our long fight  for recognition of our project,  and the eventual disposition of,  both our Trail Avenue and Mermaid Street properties, your  committee begins to see a glimmer of light at the end of the  tunnel.

Coast News, November 20,1989  nor  m^Ki^USMISSB.  evitalization of  eira  by Myrtle Winchester, 883-9099  All residents of Pender Harbour are invited to take part in  planning the revitalization of  downtown Madeira Park at a  meeting tomorrow night at 7:30  pm in the community hall.  Revitalization of Madeira  Park is making the area between  the highway and the government wharf more attractive and  interesting. Ideas so far include  landscaping, cleanup, developing a theme or motif, creating a  landmark and generally improving the look of the shopping and  business centre of Pender Harbour.  We all spend time there and  the Downtown Revitalization  Committee wants to make that  time more pleasant for all of us.  There is funding available to  undertake the project, both  from private sources and  government grants. The committee is not asking for your  money, just your ideas and your  support.  Most community organizations and businesses will be  represented at the meeting but  the committee is not affiliated  with anyone in particular. It is a  committee of the Pender Harbour and Egmont Chamber of  Commerce meeting and comprises Larry Curtiss, John  Willcock and Myrtle Winchester. Please contact any of them  for more information.  MPES  All parents and taxpayers are  invited to an open forum on the  future of the Madeira Park  Elementary School on November 23 at 7 pm in the MPES  gymnasium.  Action  sought  Continued from page 1  classes. There are no change  rooms in the school so that PE  students must take shifts to  change into their gym strip.  The school also lacks an outdoor covered play area which  means in bad weather students  are confined to the library/computer irpom, gym^and halls.  Tnejr'iu-e oiuy allowed'in their  classroom if a teachers is present.  Munro says two years ago  some renovation work was done  but much of the school's rotten  flooring wasn't tested or replaced. ;  Rats are also a recurring problem at the school, says Munro,  adding that a pest control company has visited the school  several times and left out rat  poison.  Rats are blamed for chewing  the' school's old electrical wiring, for chewing books and  papers in the storage room and  rugs in the kindergarten room,  where a nest was also found.  The consultants propose four  alternatives to remedy the  school's inadequacies: building  a new facility on the site of the  existing school for an estimated  cost of $2,225 million; building  a new school on another site  -$1.9 million; expanding and  upgrading the existing school  -$1.41 million; upgrading the  existing school and constructing  an annex - $1.4 million.  "The most significant 'down  side' to the utilization of the existing building would appear to  be its unfortunate positioning  satop the rock outcropping  ���which creates hazards for  students, the staff and visitors  to the school, particularly so in  winter  and  during  inclement  Sweather.  The consultants note in their  report: "Further exacerbating  the hazard is the school's proximity to the road and the  recognized lack of clear  sightlinCs for students when using the road. Traffic is concealed along the north and east sides  of the school creating substantial potential for accidents to occur."  An information meeting  about various options for the  school will be held at the school  on Thursday, November 23 at 7  pm.  CHILI COOK-DFf  The MPES Parents Advisory  Committee is holding the forum  to hear the community's opinions on enlarging the existing  school, rebuilding on another or  the present site and having  classes from kindergarten to  Grade 12 all under the same  roof at the PHSS.  If you have any interest in the  future of education  in  your  community, be there.  SUCCESSFUL HUNT  The Harbour Lights' Great  Tuxedo Hunt raffle was a success beyond most expectations  and the band gained 12 tuxedos  to allow them to bring you a  better look at its performances  (along with always great and  steadily improving music).  The $150 cash first prize was  won by Ronnie Dunn of Halfmoon Bay; second prize, a  hardcover edition of History of  Music in British Columbia went  to Bob Bodner; Marg Scoular  won a family membership in the  Pender Harbour Music Society;  and Jim Morris won a recording  by Harbour Lights of Tuxedo  Junction.  POETRY & JAZZ  The Harbourside Poetry and  Jazz Evening at the Pender  Harbour School of Music is on  November 24 and tickets are  still available at the Paper Mill  and Miss Sunny's.  Last week I provided a list of  poets reading the event and it  remains a mystery where these  names came from. With apologies on behalf of the person  who supplied the misinformation, here are the poets who are  really reading Friday night:  John Pass, Jay Hamburger,  Klisala   Harrison,   Colleen  Fielder and Iris Griffith.  Readings will be alternated  with jazz by the Carrie Fowler  Quartet and refreshments will  be served. Sorry, no smoking.

Coast News, November 20,1989  ���\  ces in  the Dungeon  by Peter Trower  Multi-media artist Trudy Small of Gibsons was honoured Saturday as this year's winner of the Gillian Lowndes Memorial  Award. An exhibition of Small's innovative works is currently  showing at Rockwood Centre Annex. The award was established  in 1981 in memory of Lowndes, an outstanding dancer, who died  O'Neil, a huge ex-serviceman  who had taken to committing  robberies in the guise of a police  officer after the war, is a  thoroughly obnoxious  character. Citing first-aid experience, he has inveigled his  way into the job of head nurse  on the ward. O'Neil immediately begins to throw his weight  around, establishing new rules  and generally making life  miserable for the aged and crippled patients. Wilson resents the  oppressive new regime as much  as anyone but - since O'Neil is  technically his superior - he is  powerless to do anything about  it.  Among his many unsavory  traits, O'Neil is a rabid bigot.  There are three infirm coloured  men on the ward and he takes  great unbrage to this, vowing  -"to get them goddamn niggers  out of here!" He is also a formidable glutton and often commandeers slices of meat from  the inmates' already-meagre  portions.  O'Neil's virtual reign of terror continues unchecked for  several months. 'B' Ward is  heated by a system of  somewhat-noisy steam pipes.  One cold night, declaring the  pipes are disturbing his sleep,  O'Neil callously orders the  steam turned off. He keeps  warm under a pile of commandeered   blankets   while  Wilson and the other inmates  shiver. This selfish act indirectly  results in the death of one frail  prisoner. O'Neil simply seizes  the few items of value the dead  man had, for his own use.  This habit of illegally confiscating dead men's belongings, leads eventually to  O'Neil's downfall. When a  former bootlegger named  Henry Winemiller, passe, on,  O'Neil appropriates an expensive fountain pen and several  valuable paintings. These items  had been promised to  Winemiller's former cellmate.  He reports the theft to Captain  Carpenter, the head guard.  O'Neil is immediately hauled on  the carpet.  It turns out that Captain  Carpenter has had the head  nurse under surveillance for  some time. O'Neil is immediately relieved of his post and soon  transferred to another prison on  an outstanding Federal charge.  To the relief of Wilson and his  beleaguered charges, 'B' Ward  returns to normal under a  newly-assigned and much more  reasonable head nurse.

"The house lights go  down and you are plunged into  darkness," he said. "There is an  instant communication between  the actors and the audience.  There is an immediacy in  theatre, a specialness and a  magic. That's why people go to  the theatre...for the magic! For  that theatrical experience!"  And that's why residents of  the Sunshine Coast should go to  the Roberts Creek Hall to see  the Driftwood Players' new  production of The Diviners,  under the direction of Ted  Price...for the theatrical experience and for the magic!  Theatre in a small community  is the ultimate of 'let's pretend'.  The actors are, for the most  part after all, familiar faces  around the place, neighbours  and friends. To lure us, the audience, into believing they are  other people in another place at  another time, takes talent, a  pinch of theatrical fairy dust  and the deft touch of a good  director. The Diviners has all  three.  Director Ted Price began the  process of putting together a  good evening's entertainment  by picking the right cast. A few  incidental props, the right  clothing,'and our local actors  are Zionites from the mythical  town of Zion, Indiana, population 40.  The time is during the  Depression and the occasion of  the play is the appearance in  town of a handsome, young  preacher seeking a new life for  himself away from the church  and yet carrying with him just  enough of 'the spirit' to stir  things up. The story itself is a  good one, which, much as the  entire production does, mixes  solid reality with the stretching  of the imagination necessary in  theatre.  The stage for the production  is unusual. The seating for the  audience, which is limited, is  stretched along both sides of the  stage area which encompasses  two small platforms on either  end. It is a modern minimalist  setting which is in vivid contrast  with the players in their 1930 attire.  In directing his actors, Price  allows each player rein enough  for full expression without  allowing any overacting which  is often the death of amateur  theatre. In The Diviners, in particular, several of the roles need  great sensitivity on the part of  actor and director alike to allow  the characters to evolve while  retaining their credibility.  Beau Heaton, veteran of television via the Beachcombers but  new to the theatre, had such a  role in that of the idiot boy,  Buddy. Buddy's ability to elicit  the love and tenderness of the  audience through that felt for  him by the other players is  crucial to the play and Heaton  must be congratulated for succeeding in a demanding role.  Jay Pomfret as the preacher,  CC. Showers, and Bonnie  Stewart as Buddy's sister, Jennie Mae, were excellent. At one  point the audience really does  want them to fall in love, get  married and live happily ever  after which is a sure sign  everybody there was transported right out of Roberts Creek to  Zion, Indiana!  There are no 'minor' roles in  The Diviners, as such, because  another crucial ingredient of the  play is the development of a  sense of community. Therefore  every  role   is  important   and  Price has filled each one with  care.   John   Burnside   as   the  patriarchal Basil is perfect and  the  others,   John   Marian  as  Buddy's father, Terry Weatherill,    John    Diplock,    Lynn  Vaughan,    Fran    Burnside,  Alison Beaudoin and Christabel:  Watson are all very good. ;  Bruce Milks and his production crew should also be congratulated for their part in the  play's success. The lighting by  Susan Budgell is very effective  and, in order not to give away  the last scene, suffice it tb say  here, it all worked extremely  well.  The Diviners is on again this  weekend from November 23 to  25 and really shouldn't be missed.  r  L  E  G  I  O  ,-A-f  BINCO  WE SUPPORT COMMUNITY  Charities  WE NEED YOUR HELP  TO CONTINUE  SUPPORTING THESE CHARITIES.

Besides, we hadn't celebrated the  purchase of our new home-yet, so we got our three kids ready  and drove to the Wharf Restaurant at Davis Bay.  The restaurant, located across the road from the beach, has  a very tastefully done interior design and a romantic atmosphere, right down to the oil lamps on every table. We  were seated without any waiting.  Even though the restaurant didn't seem 'family oriented'  there was no shortage on highchairs or booster seats for our  kids. They were given menus and treated with the utmost cordiality.  The absence of a children's menu did not present a problem either; for one of, the appetizers - chicken strips - was  thoughtfully turned into a kids meal with rice and veggies  which turned out to be plenty for all of them.  My wife and I started out with calamari for an appetizer  which was served with a delicious creamy dill dip. 1 had  ordered the 'Chef's Special' which was 'Filet of Sole Mex-  icana' and included a very savory zucchini and tomato soup.  The filet came with fresh vegetables and rice and was topped with melted cheddar cheese and a mild salsa - it was absolutely delightful!  My wife had chosen lamb chops which were simply done to  perfection and served with baked potato and vegetables. The  'house salad' was fresh and crisp and included mushrooms,  tomato, red cabbage and a tasty dressing!  During the dinner we were delightfully entertained by the  maitre'd himself with a few songs accompanied by his guitar.  When the evening was over there were only compliments  left for the excellent food and impeccable service that had  made us all feel like royalty.  ;  Average meal prices do not include liquor  Andy's Restaurant- Every Wednesday night is Prime Rib Night.

Coast News, November 20,1989  (See story.)  ���Laura Russell photo  Underwater hockey action  On November 12 and 13  Cheryl Law and Petra Nelson  from Gibsons joined several  other women from Vancouver  and Toronto to form the Canadian Women's team of underwater hockey enthusiasts at the  Pacific Coast Championships  held in Seattle, Washington.  Their opponents, a strong US  team, won two out of the three  games with scores of 0 to 4, 0 to  3 and 5 to 4.  There were teams from  Florida, California, Washington, Ontario and BC participating in the tournament in  mixed, open and women's divisions.  Law, who has oragnized the  local underwater team in Gibsons   called   the   Suncoast  Aquahawks said that just participating in a team representing  Canada was wonderful.  There will be a ladies-only  night at the Gibsons pool Monday, November 20 at 9:30 pm,  with snorkling instructions and  some underwater hockey fun  for beginners.  Equipment is available for  those who need it. Cost is $5.  Coast hockey action  by Mark Benson  The Hawks took over sole  possession of second place  thanks to a 7 to 6 win over the  now third place Gibsons B&D  Kings last week in Men's  Hockey.  Trent   Dixon   with   the  hat  trick   led   the  Hawks'  attack  Jock  Talk  \ 'f Y  i fit's true, is it not, that the Vancouver Canucks are rewarding their long suffering fans with some improved performances and results.  But, by God, it's true that improvement has been a long  time in coming.  The long sad saga of the inept Canucks comes back to  mind this week because of two widely separate sports stories.  First, there was the visit to Vancouver of the NHL's most  successful team, the Chicago Black Hawks; secondly, there  was the report that the coach of a junior hockey team, the  Niagara Falls Thuderclaps or some such, had been fired.  What do they have to do with the Canucks sad history?  The coach of the NHL's leading team was once a candidate  to coach the Canucks, Mike Keenan by name. He wasn't  chosen and went on to have a successful stint in Philadelphia  before turning the Black Hawks around.  The coach fired in Niagara Falls was Claude Laforge, the  same Claude Laforge who was chosen over Mike Keenan way  back then. Laforge lasted three months in Vancouver and  succeeded only in making the team the laughing stock of the  league.  The real villain in the last decade of Canuck history was the  mastermind who chose Claude Laforge over Mike Keenan as  his coach; the same mastermind who traded Harold Snepsts  away for a left winger called Al MacAdam whose modest best  days were behind him before he pulled on a Canuck jersey.  After four years away, Harold is back and one of the club's  best defenders still.  That villain is the urbane and witty Harry Neale, now a  colour commentator on television. His tenure as coach and  general manager was a disaster from start to finish.  Strange thing was that the normally bad-tempered Vancouver sports writers loved Neale. He was much better at  dealing with them than he was at dealing with hockey players.  Canuck fans looking back at the 80's would be forgiven for  having muttered a word or two for Harry Neale.  while Jordan Belrose notched a  pair and Adrian Dixon potted  the winning goal in the last  minute of the game.  Kings goal scorers were Peter  Hautala, Shawn Longman,  Jimmy Brackett, Mike Hadd  and Tom Bailey.  The Buccaneers moved into a  tie for fourth place with the  Creek due to a 4 to 3 triumph  over Gilligans Flyers. Scotty  Patton led the way for the Bucs  with a pair while Mike Gibson  arid Weepee Peers also scored.  Gilligans goals were scored by  Bill Trowsdell, Ryan Paul and  Mike Stevenson.  Last weeks scores: Wakefield  6 - Hawks 3; Gilligans 3 - Buccaneers 4; Kings 6 - Creek 3;  Hawks 9 -Creek 4; Hawks 7  -Kings 6.  Next weeks games: Wednesday, November 22nd. 7:30  Wakefield vs Creek; Thursday  the 23, 7:30 Gilligans vs Buccaneers; Friday the 24th 7:30,  Kings vs Gilligans; Saturday the  25th 7:00, Hawks vs ?, and at  9:00 Creek vs Kings.  Some of the members of the new local team of underwater hockey enthusiasts, the Suncoast  Aquahawks are pictured here. Left to right are: Hugh Colins, Ian McCullough, Laurie Kennerley,  Steve Acciaroli, Cheryl Law and Petra Nelson. Cheryl and Petra have just returned from a tournament in the US where they represented Canada on our national women's underwater hockey team.  Soccer  by Jim Brown  Now that every team on the  Coast had a weekend off on  November 11 and 12 we should  realize there are only four  games left until the Christmas  break. So parents please try to  get those little soccer players out  there, the team suffers when 14  or 16 players say they are coming and only 10 show up.  Besides, our Christmas break  is a little over a month long and  by the time we start again we  only get to play about eight soccer games before the end of the  season. So let's get the players  all soccered out and get them to  every game. (You didn't know  there was such a word as soccered out did you!)

Curlers find fun and good competition all through the winter  season. The Gibsons Winter Club hosted the Men's Open  Bonspiel last weekend with 32 rinks competing in the annual  event, including several out-of-town foursomes. ���Vera Elliott photo  On the Rocks  by Harry Turner  As we promised you earlier,  here is an article on the broom  arm. Perfect balance is the  ultimate in a curling slide and  until you achieve this, there will  be problems with the accuracy  of your delivery.  Ideally the broom should be  riding close to the surface of the  ice without actually touching so  that it may be used for balance  when required. Seldom do  curlers achieve this perfect  broom positioning so the broom  usually rides the surface of the  ice alongside the curler. This is  alright as long as the broom is  riding lightly so it does not pull  you off line.  When the body comes forward from the hack, the broom  should be positioned with the  shaft running toward the small  of the back and the tip running  along the top of the ice. The  broom should be pulled into the  body, tucked under the elbow,  and the handle should run up  along the small of the back.  The brush end should be  pointing slightly ahead at all  times. The furthest back the  Jbroom should be during the  slide is even with the sliding  foot. Your head, trunk and  jshouldersyshould be in a fairly  upright position and aimed in  the direction of the skips  broom, which is the target you  are to shoot at.  Your eyes should be glued to  the target and should remain  that way throughout your  delivery. Try not to look down  at the ice or the rock during the  delivery, or again, you may not  hit the target.  We are still looking for people interested in forming a mixed seniors league. We have had  some inquiries from some  seniors and we are wondering if  there are more of you who  would like to get a league  started on a weekday afternoon.  If you are a senior (over 50)  and you think you might like to  get some midday exercise, call  John at the club at 886-7512.  Just a reminder that if you  want to join us for a winter of  curling just come up to the club  on the night you wish to curl or  phone the club at 886-7512. You  could also consider sparing,  either to learn the game or to  reintroduce   yourself   to   the  Sport. ,;.;,,.:.J.��.Y..i,:-   n'^V.-   vr...   We welcome any newcomers  to the club. Come up and meet  us. It is a great way to find some  new friends in the community.  We always have room for more  curlers and new friends.  Good curling and see you at  the club.

New owners at the store  by Ruth Forrester   885-2418  Today, Monday, is a big day  for Bill and Uli Lucas of  Redrooffs Road. This is the day  for their official take-over of  the B & J Store in Halfmoon  Bay. It's also another stepping  stone for George and Maxine  Nelson.  This popular couple have run  the store and post office for the  past five years and have made  many friends in the area. They  have been a hard working couple who bought the store from a  fairly small business to a really  booming enterprise introducing  such conveniences as video rentals and liquor outlet.  They made vast improvements to what was once a  little store to providing for the  needs of most grocery shoppers.  There was always a friendly  word of greeting even in the  midst of the hubbub of getting  the mail out for all of us in the  area.  We will miss George and  Maxine in the store but are  pleased to know that they will  not be moving from Halfmoon  Bay, having begun plans for a ������  ���it i  in a unique way  with a personalized greeting  in the  1989 0_tisfmO8 Carol &  0lrisimaS Greeting Book  Combine your personal  or business message with  a seasonal graphic in  the style of your choice  to say "SEASONS GREETINGS"  to everyone on the Coast.  y  Call the  COAST NEWS  at  885-3930  for details  A'  i  Y  1-  ���:���**.  i'A.'.V'.-;  ������*-*���*������������_;  S?i_  _^__  >���_!__  new house to be built in the  area. So, to George and Maxine  - happy retirement from all of  us.  Bill and Uli are a young couple who moved from Ontario  six years ago, fell in love with  the place and settled on Redrooffs. Bill is employed at the  Howe Sound Pulp and Paper  mill, and until recently Uli was  with the BC Ferry Corporation.  This is an exciting venture for  Bill and Uli who will be  delighted to greet you when you  visit them at the store.  Our best wishes for a happy  and successful future in our  midst and in what we locals call  "Downtown Halfmoon Bay."  GREMLINS  Some readers, Katherine Kelly in particular, must have  wondered what on earth I was  talking about in last week's article on the new school opening  where I quoted the lines of  Katherine's song. It came out  all wrong, giving a line of the  address given by Tony Brummet, Minister of Education instead of the song line.  It should have read - "To the  tune of This Land the chorus  said - "This School Belongs To  You and me." And a very fine  song it was too. Apologies for  the mistake.  GET WELL  Best wishes for a speedy  recovery to two good  neighbours who are in hospital  in Vancouver, Dorothy Acker-  man and Marg Carpenter. Get  well soon.

Police news  lf; On November 15 at 2:30 pm  an observant Sechelt, resident  reported a suspicious person  around her neighbour's house.  Police attended and chased the  suspect for a few blocks and  eventually captured him.  The suspect, a young offender, was wanted on three  warrants from the Vancouver  area. In addition he had committed a break and enter at the  first home.  He has been charged with  break, enter and theft in Sechelt  and returned to Vancouver to  face outstanding charges.  Sechelt RCMP would like to  thank the caller for the valuable  assistance provided in the apprehension of the suspect.  Sechelt detachment encourages residents to call in any  suspicious activity at any time.  The caller in this event enabled  police to catch a suspect and  recover several hundred dollars  worth of the victim's property.  Over the weekend a number  of break and enters occurred in  Sechelt: a residence on Surf Circle; tourist information booth;  Sechelt Elementary School;  Petro Can tank farm; Sunshine  Coast Regional District Office  and Tideline Truck Parts.

'Breakaway' is a non-profit  organization made up of young  people and parents whose lives  have become unmanageable due  to the effects of substance  abuse.  "Too many kids are written  off as losers," said April  MacKenzie-Moore, chairman of  the Sunshine Coast Breakaway  Drug Abuse Society, who addressed District of Sechelt  Council at its meeting,  November 15.  MacKenzie-Moore encouraged council members to attend a  community Breakaway forum  on November 30 at 7:30 pm in  the Chatelech Secondary School  library.  She explained that Penticton  has a very successful three-year-  old Breakaway program and  she notes in her letter to council  that, "a young person from our  community is presently up  there. If we had a program here,  this boy would be able to come  home. He would then be provided with the necessary support to stay sober.

Coast News, November 20,1989  by Ellen Frith  The possibility of Gibsons'  new waterfront park becoming  home to the Sunshine Coast  Maritime History Society's  (SCMHS) project of building a  replica of Captain Vancouver's  vessel, HMS Discovery, moved  one step closer last week when  the proposal was supported at  the Planning Committee meeting by Aldermen John Reynolds  and Gerry Dixon although  Mayor Diane Strom remained  very strongly against that particular site being used for  anything other than a park.  Aldermen Ken Collins and  Lilian Kunstler were both absent from the meeting.  Basically the society is proposing the town permit it the exclusive use of the waterfront  park property for two years  after which two thirds of the  land will be returned as  developed park ("complete with  water, sewage disposal, electricity, benches, tables, etc.")  and the remaining one third  would continue being used for  "museum/attraction purposes."  The "museum" will be housed in the old firehall which the  SCMHS proposes, in spite of an  August 22 report from Building  Inspector Ralph Jones against  such a move, to relocate from  its present site on Gower Point  Road to the new park.  "To ensure the success of this  project and to relieve the town  of any possible future complications, we propose to acquire all  necessary performance and  clean-up bonds required before  commencement," the society  states in a November 8 letter to  Town Planner Rob Buchan.  The letter also states an amendment to the existing zoning bylaw is necessary to accommodate the museum.  Also presented to council at  the Planning Committee  meeting was a letter from 13  members of the Gibson's Landing Merchants Association  conveying their "endorsement  in principal of the Maritime  Museum in the recently acquired park property below  Holland Park." The only proviso, the letter states, "is the  stipulation of a bond to ensure  the property can be cleaned up"  should the project fail.  While Aldermen Reynolds  and Dixon both voiced support  for the project as long as surety  bonds protecting the taxpayers  against any defaults were acquired and any possible damage  to the town's water supply was  investigated before dredging  was done, Mayor Strom stated  bluntly she was not in favour of  utilizing that particular property  for the SCMHS' project.  "That property should be  developed as soon as possible as  a park," she said. "I've nothing  against the project but I object  to the site."  Strom said she had spoken to  Economic Development Officer  Bill Moore in regards to having  the society's project built at the  new Hillside Industrial Park.  Apparently Moore said that  although the project hadn't  been considered for Hillside, it  could be.  Dixon said the Hillside Industrial Park was "too far away  from other tourist attractions"  to be a viable alternative to the  waterfront park which was "an  excellent location and when it  (the project) is completed, we  will still have room for community use."  Strom is particularly opposed  to moving the old firehall  stating, "Once the firehall is  moved, it's permanent. We  have no plans for the park but  we're moving the building as a  museum."  The potential damage to the  water supply is also a major  concern, she said.  Clerk-Administrator Lorraine Goddard told the Coast  News the proposed dredging off  shore to allow the replica ship to  be built could well disturb the  "underground lake" which supplies the town with fresh water.  According to the town's  engineering consultants, Goddard said, the lake is 45 feet  from the surface but may be  closer under the sea in which  case a possible "breaking the  crust" could occur allowing salt  water to mix with the fresh.  This is a concern Dixon said,  and suggested at the meeting  that expert advice be sought.  Buchan said he had several  reservations to the plan which  he outlined in a September 5  report to council. At the Planning Committee meeting he added that allowing the project to  go forward may well jeopardize  the town's chances of obtaining  grants to develop the park itself.  He said he was worried about a  possible "minor backlash"  from townspeople against utilizing the park grounds for  anything other than a park.  He said he had previously  been directed by council to  prepare an outline for a park  and that there was a good opportunity at this point of obtaining the funds.  Reynolds said he hoped  council could "wrap it up (the  decision concerning the  SCMHS proposal) at the next  meeting" stipulating bond protection, protection of water supply and guarantees of on-going  progress on the project.  Strom said she would be  voting against it.  Watershed logging  Continued from page 1  the Sunshine Coast, no such  authority exists.  The discussion that followed  Bonin's presentation brought  out the fact that, in many cases,  logging practices on the Sunshine Coast fall far short of the  high standards of the GVRD  Water District.  Art Giroux, who has a tourist  oriented boat charter business,  showed slides of recent logging  in Sechelt Inlet. The area has  been clear-cut right to the water  and a large quantity of fallen  timber has been left behind  because it was supposedly too  small to be removed economically.  It was agreed that a great deal  of further discussion is needed,  so the next meeting of the  Forest Advisory Committee will  again deal with this subject.  > ��� ��� _<n_���_i_^__^_���____���  9999*999999*  ZZ  The  SYLVIA  N  Make the Sylvia part  of your Vancouver adventure...
