Those who support the board  felt that the district is doing a  good job and stressed the importance of providing top quality education for students.  "I have two children in high  school," said Heather Myhill-  Jones. "I feel I'm getting good  value for my money."  Mary Bland agreed, "I applaud this board. I have three  children in school who are getting the benefit of a good education."  m%  eniors)   have  ww~  nster of high  deficits," said Jim Bartley.  "We shouldn't expect the kids  to suffer for it."  Lome Blain objected to the  100 per cent increase in government funding to private schools  which he claims is creating an  elitist class at the expense of the  public school system. "Most  private schools are run by  religious groups," he said. "We  separated church and state a  long time ago. This is a  backward step."  Criticism of the budget tended to focus on the hardship experienced by those on fixed incomes.  "This increase is beyond the  inflation rate," said Vic  Vaughan. "Pensions have not  increased. I'm scared. Too  much ruddy money is being  spent, and what are we getting  for it?"  Replying to criticism of the 18  per cent increase in teachers'  salaries, District Superintendent  Clifford Smith said, "Our  teachers were low on the salary  scale. These increases just bring  them into line with the rest of  the province. In the next five to  10 years we are headed for a  serious teacher shortage. We  want to be competitive and to  keep our good teachers."  The   $14,834,686   budget  represents a 12.4 per cent increase over the current year.  The annual cost of educating  each student will go from $4704  to $5122, a nine per cent increase.  _ With 85 per cent of the total  budget related to wages, recent  salary negotiations account for  an 18 per cent increase at the  elementary level and 14.3 per  cent increase at the secondary  level.  Other increases are caused by  an estimated three per cent increase in enrollment; more  supervision as a result of the  collective agreement with  teachers; increased custodial  costs due to the new Halfmoon  Bay school and additional portables at other schools.  More money has been allotted for general supplies,  libraries and extracurricular  travel.  Additional costs will be incurred in implementing the new  curriculum mandated by the  Ministry of Education as a  result of the Royal Commission.  Cutbacks in the restraint  years resulted in considerable  deterioration of buildings and  grounds. Repair of these  facilities has now become  urgent.  A 65 per cent reduction in  government grants for Continu  ing Education threatened to  scuttle that department, but the  board opted to retain the  popular program.  There have been some  decreases. As a result of an external evaluation, increased efficiency will result in a seven per  cent decrease in special education costs, and administration  costs will drop by 3.8 per cent.  Of the total $14,843,686  budget, the fiscal framework  (that is, the money the provincial government provides for  education in this district)  amounts to $12,871,535.

The announcement of the intended administration switch  was the result of an SCRD  board decision made at their  March 23 meeting. But it came  as a complete and, by most accounts, a very unpleasant surprise to those commission  members not privy to the SCRD  decision before April 5.  And, coming as it did, like a  'bombshell', the announcement  resulted not only in a lot of hurt  feelings, but also the speculation that the decision was  politically motivated.  "My perception is that it is  clearly a political move," said  John Reynolds, a former commission member who was sitting  in on the April 5 meeting as an  Alternate to Gibsons Alderman  Ken Collins. "It has to do with  restructuring."  Reynolds, who is currently  also a Gibsons Alderman,  brought up the possibility of the  administration switch being  politically motivated at the  April 5 meeting. Afterwards he  said, "It's extremely unfortunate that this happened now  while the restructuring issue is  being talked about.  "I'm very disappointed. The  commission worked as a group  for the area and there were no  concerns for boundaries. Now,  if we're talking politics, it can  screw things up. Everybody was  shocked and there will be hard  feelings."  Jim Gurney, Area 'E' representative, denies categorically  there was anything political in  the SCRD's decision.  "It has always been at the  back of our minds to take over  the administration of the commission when we had the  backup staff to do it," he said.  "We've had this move in the  making for at least a year. It  was no big secret and it was" not  politically motivated."  Please turn to page 4  "It was a cheap lesson," according to Gibsons wharfinger  Matt Small i Last week Gibsons  Harbour had an oil spill, at  most only 4JX) to 500 gallons,  but possibly as little as 200  gallons. In attempting to handle  it, Small, Gibsons officials, and  local boat owners learned a lot  about whom to call, what to do  and what not to do when a spill  occurs.  Investigating a complaint last  -Tuesday, Small noticed an in-  "���creasing density of oil in the  -f liiaitoow, area.,;Ha ccmtacjed the  . ;��o^ftdu|r^  ' .^cw| investigators to ���'jje^seht  down. ;  Or) Tuesday, a representative  fromr the Ministry of the Environment arrived to look  things over. He and Small  discovered some dolphin wells  (where the pilings come up) inches thick with diesel.  A quick series of phone calls  ���were made to the Department  of Fisheries and Oceans;  Federal Ministry of the Environment; the Coast Guard  and Public Works Canada. The  phone Calls which effected the  most immediate action were  those made to Shell and Esso,  locally.  Within minutes, Small told  the Coast News a truck from  Esso had arrived; Shell arrived  moments later. Both companies  brought bundles of special absorbing cloths which absorb oil  not water, and the cleanup  began on a local basis.  Small and Jim Lamb, as well  as many other helpful  volunteers, pumped out the  concentrated areas, bailed and  blotted with the cloths. The problem was that the spill hadn't  been reported right away,  allowing wave action and  weather to both spread the  diesel and thin it.  The emergency response team  from the Coast Guard arrived  on Wednesday with pumps and  booms and other cleanup equipment, but the concentrated  areas had already been dealt  with and the equipment they  had wouldn't help.  'Spray Away', a private contracting company who does this  sort of thing for the government  was contacted and completed  the cleanup operation as best as  possible.  Small says there'll be a  residue for a while, but the sunny days will help to speed up the  evaporation process which  eliminates the last traces of the  spill, something he didn't know  before last week's incident.  "I learned a lot." he said.  "Everybody involved here  learned a lot."  Please turn to page 4  O81 til�� IflSlCl��  Power of Pulp Press ...  .P.2  Pender Lions Park ....

Burk laid the charge with the RCMP on March 28.  Collins has been charged with carrying on '...a security  business without holding a valid security business licence  issued to him by the registrar, and without holding a security  employee licence'.  Strike over  The 3'/2 week CBC strike is over and cameras, once again,  are preparing to roll on The Beachcombers. The renovations  on Molly's Reach resume today, April 10, and filming on  May 1. In other words, things in Gibsons are getting back to  normal. ;  The national strike by CUPE members ended Friday night  with 87 percent of the office and profession workers and 79.6  percent of the production staff voting in favour of the settlement offered by CBC.  "On the whole, it was a fairly substantial gain for the  union," said local Molly's Reach picketer, David Croal.  Croal said he was overwhelmed by the support shown the  strikers by the local townspeople and everybody in general.  "Somehow this strike showed that a union is not just a nasty  word, it's people," he said. "Somebody was always bringing  us muffins and coffee and buying us lunch. It was really  wonderful."  ^;���,��*��r*  ���**��__ ** i  v,  ���**$<-,  v.;  VMS.  ��>f  "*���*��,  ortf*"_  i��*N��  _u  In case anyone had forgotten, or never even knew it, last week        the kids who knew all about it and these imaginative and varied  was Teddy Bear Day at Davis Bay Elementary School.

Dead oil soaked wildlife always light quickly and  burn for hours under any conditions.  Last week regional directors Gurney and McGillivray  announced to the West Howe Sound Recreation Commission that the regional board was taking over the administration of the commission.  This is not to discuss whether or not the move was  merited but rather to point out there was that about the  method of doing it that is unfortunately typical of the  SCRD at its most high-handed and discourteous, a trait  which goes to the root of much of the animosity that traditionally exists among the Coast's governments.  Apparently at the end of the March 23 regional board  meeting Director Gurney presented the non-agenda item as  a 'housekeeping matter' and the rest of the directors took  him at his word, passed it, and went home.  The function under which the West Howe Sound  Recreation Commission functions was acquired in 1980  for the purpose of providing a vehicle under which the  SCRD residents of Areas E and F could contribute to the  costs of the recreation facilities they use in the Town of  Gibsons.  It has had its rough-spots over the years but by and large  it has been one of the few instances of relatively satisfactory cooperation between the two jurisdictions.  When Gurney and McGillivray masterminded the  change of administration without first discussing it with  members of their commission and without advising the  Town of Gibsons of their intent, they acted with the kind  of devious discourtesy and arrogance that long-time  observers will recognize all too well.  The fact is the principal recreational facilities involved,  the swimming pool, Brothers Park, and the Dougal Park  Tennis Courts are the property of the Gibsons taxpayers.  The cited activities of the SCRD parks superintendent  surely belong under the SCRD parks function.  It is difficult to believe that the rest of the SCRD directors were willing partners in this exercise in arrogant  rudeness.  Don't punish  initiative  It is reported that last week's meeting of the town council of Gibsons came to an end with a journalist lecturing  them on procedures involving the project of sludge utilization spearheaded by Works Superintendent Skip Reeves.  It would be a shame indeed if Mr. Reeves was to be  harassed for showing too much initiative. He has accomplished great things during his brief tenure and if  sometimes his enthusiasm and appetite for his work take  him beyond the aldermen bobbing uninformed in his  wake, surely the principal responsibilities there lie with the  mayor and the senior administrator, and the aldermen  themselves.  And generally speaking, it may be time for council to  stiffen its collective backbone and tell the Coast's leading  exponent of huff and puff journalism that if he wants to  run the town he should stand for election. A staff member  as dedicated and effective as Mr. Reeves deserves that  much protection and support.  from th�� file* oMhe COAST NEWS  5 YEARS AGO  The doors of the Sechelt Indian Band Salmon Hatchery in MacLean Bay officially open.

The case took weeks to try  and  provided  the very same  newspaper   being   sued   with  much   copy   of   a   salacious  nature, especially when the prostitute took the stand, but eventually Archer was victorious.  He exited the courtroom, with  his wife by his side, millions of -  pounds sterling richer which he -  then gave to charity. He sued, *  he.said, not for the mdneypMY  because he just didn't wanfcfne;  newspaper to think it could get  away with  saying  the things  about him that it did.  The pulp-press,  of course,  whether in Britain or North  America, sells newspapers very  simply because it does say the  things it does. And for the most  part it gets away with it. The  public tends to think of even the  most outrageous stories printed  as naughty but essentially innocent gossip merely meant to  titillate since the subjects of  these acounts are usually very  public figures.  Jeffrey Archer was just such  a public figure and, really, his  reputation did not suffer very  much from the innuendos  printed about his sex life. But  what his trial did do, because it  was so well-publicized, was  finally focus attention on just  what the pulp-press is all about.  Various commissionsfollowed and what they found was  that in between the stories of the  movie stars and such like, were  stories in the same ilk of more  ordinary folk. It was in these  cases that the power of the  press, slanted as it was towards  unrepentant sensationalism,  wreaked considerable damage.  Lives had, in many cases, been  ruined.  The point is the written word  can hurt. Well-chosen adjectives  on the printed page are slings  and arrows to make all but the  most thick-skinned take cover.  And, when a considerable  arsenal of words is combined  with the intrinsic influence of  the press on the public, even in  good, straight and objective  reporting, the power is a very  real thing.  In the case where reporting is  definitely slanted towards  creating a story rather than  merely reporting on one, or  where the reporter's chosen  words are too often of an  emotive or inflammatory  nature, the power can be lethal.  This is especially true in a  small community where those  under the pen are usually not  professionally public figures in  some far off Hollywood, but  rather friends, family or the  person next door.  If the barrage from the local  newspaper is too fierce or partisan, or too cruel in a  belaboured effort to be amusing, what happens is simple.  Many community people who  would offer themselves for  public service shy away from  any limelight at all lest they  draw fire, and those already in  the public eye, who are in the  least bit sensitive, begin to tread  so carefully they become ineffectual.  When this . happens, the  reporter, whose legitimate job,'is  to observe and report, or, when  he wishes, to editorialize when it  is made obvious to the reader  that's what is being done, starts  calling the shots. It's something  to look out for.  A magical discovery  by Myrtle Winchester  It's an unintentionally well-  kept secret, the Lions Park in  Pender Harbour, somewhat to  the puzzlement of the local  Lions Club who maintain and  quietly promote their award-  winning accomplishment. It is a  30 acre forest that gently integrates a variety of recreational  facilities into its charm.  The result to anyone who  visits the site is the feeling that  the park is a magical, personal  discovery, like a natural  meadow high in the hills or a  secluded bay that surely no  one's ever seen before or it  would be inundated by tourists.  The Lions Park is a little  paradise for naturalists,  photographers, and hikers who  aren't athletes, and it provides a  clean and tranquil setting for  one and a quarter miles of  trails, three picnic sites with 12  barbecue pits and tables, a  covered 'longhouse' baseball  diamond, bowling green,  children's playgound and more.  Perhaps the park seems  forgotten because those who use  it regularly do so unobtrusively.  In addition to being a  meeting place for Lions and  Lioness Clubs, Masons, and  Cubs, the onsite hall and park is  used by the Harbour Artists, a"  Pender Harbour group that includes well known painters,  Noreen Marshall and Wendy  Simmonds. The group paints  indoors when the weather is  poor, but otherwise they take  advantage of the inspirational  wilderness landscape.  The Pender Harbour and  District Wildlife Society, in conjunction with the Fisheries  Department, rears salmon in a  hatchery on park grounds, part  of a very successful salmonid  enhancement project.  A herd of Roosevelt elk, the  result of a project to re-establish  the species on the Sunshine  Coast from Vancouver Island  stock, regularly wanders  through the park, as does.just  about every other form of  wildlife indiginous to the area.  Creeks, waterfalls, marshes,  and a variety of soil types provide ideal growing conditions  for myriad botanical species  that seasonally change the  whole atmosphere and appearance of the park.  In 1967 the Pender Harbour  Lions Club obtained several  government grants and the  talents of some of its large and  industrious membership to  begin development of a public  park on property north of  Madeira Park.  Although the terrain is mostly  level, paths had to be terraced  on steeper parts and footbridges  had to be built over sections off  the two tributaries of Meyers  Creek that wind back and forth  across the main trail.  Government employment  creation programs were  available for the initial work,  and a dozen unemployed young  people from the area took advantage of the opportunity to  spend a season working outdoors and learning new skills  like running a chainsaw.  In later years grants were obtained to hire students for summer work to improve and expand on the original features of  the park.  Morrison Hall is located on  the park grounds, a facility with  a complete kitchen and room  for 50 or so people to have a  party or dance, private or otherwise.  The hall, dedicated to late  president Harry Morrison, and  a park caretaker's house was  built between 1977 and 1981 by  members who were professionals, skilled in construction  trades, or who knew which end  of an axe to use to split shakes  for the roof of the club's con-  ������' tribution to the community.  Forty percent of the materials  were donated, and cash for the  rest came from fundraisers like  auctions and pancake breakfasts. The Lions ensure that all  the money they raise in Pender  Harbour goes back into the  community.  The Pender Harbour Lions  Club won the international  achievement award ten years  ago for their park, considered  the best contribution to a community in the district including  British Columbia, Washington  and Idaho, a district comprising  over 450 Lions Clubs.  The Lions Park is an ongoing  project of the club, and future  plans include completion of an  archery range and expansion of  the nature trails.  In an official ceremony that  marked the completion of the  park, Jim Shaboit dedicated the  park simply, "To the people of  Pender Harbour, forever." The  Pender Harbour Lions Club  endeavours to make sure that  the people's park is the best that  it can be.

From the upcoming book  'Unmarked Doorways'  to be published by  Harbour Publishing in 1989 Coast News, April 10,1989  Editor's Note: A copy of the  following was received for  publication.  Harold Long  Social Credit Caucus  Parliament Buildings  Victoria, B.C.  I am a grade 6 student at  Langdale Elementary School  and our 'Challenge Group' is  studying ecology.  I am quite concerned about  the contaminated sludge being  dumped in Thornborough  Channel.  I would like for you to ask  B.C. Environment Minister  Bruce Strachan to pressure Environment Canada to stop  allowing polluted materials to  be dumped in Howe Sound.  While I respect the efforts by  the Socred government with  regards to environmental concerns, I believe the Environment  Minister must clean up our area  before it is too late.  I would also like to point out  that neither Howe Sound nor  Port Mellon was mentioned in  the environment section of your  report to the constituency of  Mackenzie.  I don't know if you realize  that fishermen of Howe Sound  are losing money because of this  pollution and the government is  not taking steps immediately to  eliminate the dioxins in Howe  Sound.  As our local MLA, I think  that you should pressure the  government to stop this needless  pollution.  I have read in the papers that  in the throne speech, it was  mentioned that the government  is going to be tough on  polluters. Because I was not  present when the throne speech  Village benefits  Editor:  The more havoc a society  wreaks only indicates how upset  the people are. In other words,  as mechanization, automation,  specialization, computerization,  industrialization and governmental compartmentalization  increases we are only fooling  ourselves in thinking that things  are getting easier and better.  When modernization gets to  the point of where it is now in  the western world, one could  say that things are in quite a  mess.  Increased size of municipalities is not the answer. The  village attitude is and always  will be the only sane approach.  Materialism does not and  cannot increase in direct proportion to population, lest each  and every one of us is given a  mansion to live in. That is pretty doubtful. Society had better  start socializing more, rather  than   performing   communion  with technology and advanced  science.  Western man is no longer  successful, only excessive.  For every dollar in our  pocket, there is industrial waste.  For every modern convenience,  there is destruction of the environment.  Over 1000 automobiles drive  into Gibsons each day just so  one person in each car can pick  up their mail. Think of the  waste in that small statistic  alone.  There ought to be at least six  distinct villages between  Langdale and Davis Bay, each  with its own town council and  each with its own administration, residential, commercial  and industrial zones.  Anyone disagreeing with a  larger Gibsons municipality  should seriously consider the  benefits of a village of their own  and in their own area.  Keith Receveur  Ex-mayor objects  Editor:  Press reports indicate that the  Gibsons council may outdo  itself again this year by granting  $11,000 in largesse to the Gibsons and District Chamber of  Commerce.  I would like to hear justification for a grant of, roughly, $4  for each townsperson to the  Chamber. The purpose of the  Chamber is to promote their  members' commercial interests.  Why should I, as a taxpayer,  support a self-interest group?  The Chamber, generally speaking, consists of persons who  support the 'user pays  philosophy', but don't hesitate  to beg and accept public monies  to defray 59.46 percent of the  Chamber's operating expenses.  The Chamber may argue that  they are helping the community  by encouraging tourism. The  only persons benefitting from  that promotion are tourism  operators and the few that  might be employed at minimum  wage or slightly better.  It does absolutely nothing for  senior citizens or someone  working at Port Mellon, for example.  On principle, council has no  business making donations on  my behalf. That should be my  perogative. I, especially object  to a forced donation to self-  interest groups.  Lome B. Blain  Where's  Nikki?  Editor:  I would appreciate if any of  the readers could help me locate  someone who writes by the  name of Nikki Lee and who had  a poem called 'Balloon'  published in the 1985 Sparks  from the Forge anthology.  The editor of Anthology of  Chinese Canadian Writers  would like to get in touch with  Nikki whom we have been  unable to locate.

FESTIVA  As seen  on TV Coast News, April 10,1989  ;���!.���.  fi  ���i  Some of the diesel fuel pumped out of Gibsons Harbour last week  is contained in these oil drums on a float at the wharf.  ���Vern Elliott photo  Spill fouls  Harbour  Continued from page 1  One of the main things that  Small would like to see come  out of the incident is more  education, both of boat owners  and himself.  "Every wharfinger should be  trained in the procedures to  follow if there's a spill," he  said. And there needs to be a  coordinated response organized-  on a local level, as well as senior  government levels.  Small now has a better idea  whom to call should such an incident occur again, but he hopes  that next time it won't take so  long to find out about the spill.  "Everybody makes mistakes," he said. "It could hap  pen to anybody." But if the person responsible for the spill had  contacted the wharfinger or the  Coast Guard immediately, clean  up would have been a minor  procedure. The person responsible for the spill would then be  'more like a hero', for reporting  it and the clean up costs would  be minimal.  "We always find out who did  it," Small said. That person is  liable for the costs incurred for  cleaning up.  Both environmentally and  economically, it makes a lot  more sense for anyone who accidentally leaks oil into the  water to report it immediately.  Vandals hit  John Daly Park  by Myrtle Winchester  The RCMP and the Sunshine  Coast Regional District (SCRD)  Parks Superintendent Steve  Alexander, surveyed extensive  damage at the John Daly Park  grounds in Pender Harbour on  Friday.

Large areas of sod were torn  up by one or more vehicles that  drove into the area after the  barrier was removed, and the  lawn area was virtually  destroyed.  "We've got a limited parks  budget this year," the  discouraged Parks Superintendent continued, "and that  repair is going to take a big  chunk out of it, money that we  wanted to use for new projects  in Pender Harbour.  "The parks are here for the  people to enjoy. I can't understand why they'd want to do this  kind of damage."  Alexander suggested that  residents 'keep an eye out' for  vandals and let either him or the  RCMP know about anyone  deliberately damaging public  parks property.  WEST HOWE SOUND FIRE PROTECTION DISTRICT  GIBSONS FIRE DEPARTMENT  PUBLIC NOTICE  OUTDOOR BURNING  WITHIN THE BOUNDARIES OF SAID DISTRICT  Under the provisions of the Forest Act and with co-operation of  the Forestry Service, the West Howe Sound Fire Protection  District, and serviced by the Gibsons Fire Department, will issue  Burning Permits in the following manner:  FROM APRIL 1 TO OCTOBER 31,1989  Step No. 1   -An application form obtainable at the Gibsons  Municipal Hall, South Fletcher Rd., Gibsons, will  be filled out by applicant and deposited there.  Step No. 2  -Twice a week or as required a duly appointed  Fire Prevention Officer will take these application  forms, personally inspect the proposed burning  site, and if approved will upon the receipt of $5.00  issue a burning permit.  NOTE: No permit is required for a screen covered incinerator.  MEL BUCKMASTER, FIRE CHIEF  surprise takeover  Continued from page 1  Brett McGillivray, SCRD  Director, said the present  system, with Gibsons administrating the commission,  just created confusion.  "Steve Alexander, Parks  Superintendent for the SCRD,  does all the work," McGillivray  said. "The SCRD collects the  taxes, gives the money to Gibsons and then they give it back  to us to pay our staff. This tinie  last year we said 'how can we  keep doing things this way!' "  He admits, though, that the  SCRD handled the announcement of their decision badly.  ' 'More warning would certainly  have   helped,"   he   said.  The SCRD, through Letters  Patent, were able to set up the  West Howe Sound Recreational  Commission in 1980 under sec-  don 699 of the Municipal Act.  The functions of the commission include: financial assistance  to the Gibsons Aquatic Centre,  up to 75 percent of funds collected; development, improvement and maintenance of parks  in Areas *E\ *F' and Gibsons;  identification of future recreational needs in the community.  The  administration  of the  commission fell to Gibsons in  1980   because   they   had   the  facilities and staff to do the job.  "Gibsons' part of the commission has always been voluntary," Gurney said.  Lorraine Goddard, Clerk  Administrator for the Town of  Gibsons, and, in that capacity,  a participant in the commission,  was instrumental in the creation  of the commission in the first  place. She was mayor of Gibsons at the time.  Her job on the commission  will now be taken over by a staff  member of the SCRD. Gurney  said that one reason for the  delay in notifying commission  members of the SCRD decision  was to allow time to tell Goddard first.  "What we wanted was for  Lorraine Goddard to be the first  to know," Gurney said. "The  commission was one of her pet  projects. She has served <fit  'well." ��� ���;'   Y  Joan Mahlman, Chairman of  the Commission condemned the  SCRD's ill-timing of its announcement but is convinced it  was not politically motivated  and has absolutely nothing to  do with restructuring.  She is more concerned that  any misrepresentation of the  situation will undermine the  commission's achievements.  "We have all worked  together and have done a lot of  good," Mahlman said. "Bad  press will spoil or destroy  something that has worked really well."  Tony Laver, Alternate for  Area 'F', said the situation "has  nothing to do with restructuring" and the move "has been  on the books for some time."  Dick Derby, Area *F' Alternate, said, "It took me by surprise. The commission was one  thing that the community had  done together and it has worked  well."  He said the SCRD handled  the whole thing badly and that  the move was, in his view,  politically motivated and tied  into the issue of restructuring.  "I didn't think much of the  meeting," he said.  The SCRD members feel that  the commission will function  much the same as before with its  new administrators, the only  problem being with the summer  program. The Town of Gibsons, as a municipality, is in the  position to apply for federal  summer employment grants, the  SCRD is not, McGillivray said.  The quality of the administration job done by the  Town of Gibsons was never an  issue, both Gurney and  McGillivray said. "Lorraine  Goddard was just excellent."  But the commission "needs  more direction, more input",  Gurney said.  It is now the logistics of the  administration changeover  which must be contended with,  Gurney said, "Do we stay in  Gibsons? An alternative is to  utilize the community rooms in  schools around the jurisdictions." ���   ..Y.,..,.v .���.. ,,..,,.

FOR JOHN CHARLETON  Friends of John Charleton of  Halfmoon Bay were saddened  to learn of his death on March  26.  John and his wife Brucie settled in the area in 1952 where  for two years they lived on  Thormanby Island with their  four children.  At that time things were pretty primitive and water had to be  packed, no easy task with a  family.  John commuted to Halfmoon Bay where he worked at  logging, road construction and  with the Forestry Department.  He was an active member of the  Welcome Beach Community  Association where he was very  popular, particularly among the  shuffleboard group.  He is survived by his loving  wife Brucie, four children and  four grandchildren, to whom  our sympathy goes out at this  sad time.  COUNTRY FAIR  This year's Halfmoon Bay  Country Fair will be on July 7, 8  and 9 and plans are already  underway for this popular  event.  A public meeting will be held  on Friday, April 14 at Coopers  Green Hall. All those who have  been, or would care to be active  in the planning are urged to attend.

Here's something for your  head and your heart  Religion is more than an affair of the heart. Some of the greatest advances in human history have come about when one or another of the great religions touched both the minds and the hearts  of millions of people.  That is happening again today.  Baha'ullih, the Messenger of God for our age and Founder of  the Baha'i Faith said that the time has come for the human race to  take the next big step in its collective life: the establishment of  unity among all the peoples and nations of the earth.  Baha'i's around the world are putting into practice the plan  Baha'u'lldh brought for uniting mankind, and in doing so we're  finding that true religion is an affair of both mind and heart.  h  :  886-9294  NOTICE  For the Information of Residents of the  Egmont Area  The B.C.

Province of British Columbia  HOUSING  PROGRAMS  BUDGET  1^89  A renter's tax reduction will be introduced  for renters with modest incomes.  Non-profit societies that develop rental  housing for seniors may be eligible for special  start-up grants of up to $20,000.  The shelter allowance for British Columbians  receiving income assistance under the GAIN  program will be increased in July.  The SAFER program, targeted to seniors  who are renters, will be significantly  enhanced in July. Those most in need will  receive a higher subsidy ��� the rent ceiling  has been raised and the eligibility age has  been lowered to 60 years.  British Columbia will build more than 1,800  units of social housing as part of a cost-  sharing agreement with the federal  government. British Columbia will seek to  significantly increase this number. There are  already 51,000 units of social housing in the  province.  The eligibility age for British Columbians to  defer their property taxes is being lowered  from 65 to 60.  The home owner grant is being increased by  $50, to $430 for 1989.

Developers will be eligible for interest rate  assistance on these units.  ��� Crown land will be made available for rental  housing developments. The program is  targeted to areas where vacancy rates are low  and land is scarce.  ��� The provincial government will work with  municipalities and offer grants for each new  unit of multiple dwelling rental housing  approved for development.  ��� The Second Mortgage Program is being  . improved for qualifying home buyers. The  program is being privatized and to facilitate  delivery by the private sector, second  mortgages will be replaced by provincial loan  guarantees effective June 15, 1989.

Coast News, April 10,1989  rive underwa  Pender Harbour and District Wildlife Society volunteer Billy Griffith off Egmont transfers Chum  salmon fry from their hatchery location at Lions Park to their release site at Anderson Creek.  ���Myrtle Winchester photo  To Anderson Creek  Salmon fry transported  by Myrtle Winchester  Last week volunteers from  the Pender Harbour and  District Wildlife Society  transported dogfish (Chum  salmon) fry daily from the  Lions Park hatchery to Anderson Creek for the second on a  three-week hatching period that  peaked on April 4.  Of the approximately 250  thousand eggs that were fertilized last November, about 225  thousand fry hatched, an 85  percent survival rate and a  tremendous increase from the 3  percent to 10 percent rate existing for eggs in the wild.  "This is why we're doing it,"  said Wildlife Society volunteer  Billy Griffith, "so we can get  ten times the production. We  could get 98 percent if we were  lucky."  - The fry were taken in plastic  buckets by truck from the hatchery and released at their  spawning ground, where male  and female salmon were collected last fall so that fertilized  eggs could be obtained for the  hatchery.  "This is a public involvement  program," said Griffith. "The  Lions provided a free site and  storage building, and all of the  labour is volunteer."  The automated feeding system at the site is checked daily  by local volunteers, as is the  development of fry and progress of fertilized eggs in incubation trays. Eggs are identified as successfully fertilized  and probable for hatching after  they reach the 'eyed' stage,  where a distinct eye is visible.  " The Chum fry's release time  is determined by the water temperature and calculated by the  number of heat units accumulated after the eyed stage is  reached, a system that records  and adds the daily temperature  of the water circulating through  the trays. Coho fry will be kept  at the hatchery until late June, a  time that gives them the optimal  survival chance.  The fry are hatched in water  from a tributary of Anderson  Creek that is pumped through  the incubation trays by a gravity  system.  Eggs can be handled for only  a maximum of five minutes  after fertilization, and in this  time they must be quickly placed in incubation boxes, where  they stay until the egg sac  separates and the tiny salmon is  free-swimming.  This project, carried out in  cooperation with the federally  and provincially funded Salmonid Enhancement Program,  was initiated to increase the wild  populations of Coho and Chum  salmon and trout in Anderson  Creek, Sakinaw Lake and, most  recently, Waugh Creek.  The Department of Fisheries  provides most of the funding  for equipment and fish food,  although Wildlife Society  volunteerrs have constructed  some parts of the facility  themselves, including a backups  water supply system installed by  Billy Griffith.  A donation from the Area  'A' Property Owners Association helped build the hatchery in  1984 at the Lions Park north of  Madeira Park.  Wilson says ferry change  misses the boat  Reacting to the 1989 budget  tabled by the Minister of  Finance and Corporate Relations on March 30, 1989, B.C.  Liberal leader, Gordon Wilson,  said that the approach to solving the problems of the B.C.  Ferries will not assist many  small coastal communities  because the British Columbia  government has once again failed to recognize that the B.C.  Ferries are a natural extension  of our coastal highway system.  Wilson, who will be attending  the meetings of the Provincial  Task Force, 'Freedom to Move'  in Powell River on Monday,  April 10, 1989 at 2:30 pm at the  Beach Gardens Resort, also said  that he will be presenting his  concerns    regarding    the  deplorable state of Highway 101  and the lack of a circle route to  enhance coastal  tourism  between Vancouver Island, Powell  River and the Sunshine Coast.  "Highway 101, the only service route for the residents and  businesses   of   the   Sunshine  Coast and Powell River, is for  two thirds of its route little more  than a goat trail when compared  to other  highways in  British  Columbia.   It is unacceptable  that this government, who can  increase   expenditures   in   the  Ministry of Transportation and  Highways   by   349.6   million  dollars to a total of 1.16 billion  dollars in  the  1989/90 fiscal  year, still does not have in its list  of priorities for this budget year  highway projects such as the  Gibsons bypass, highway improvement from the Jolly Roger  to Earl's Cove and needed  highway improvement from  Saltery Bay to Powell River.  "At best, the government will  only provide piecemeal project  work rather than an improvement of the overall system."  Wilson further stated that if  the government is truly committed to the enhancement of the  economy of coastal communities it would be seeking ways to  reduce ferry fares and to absorb  the 72.7 million dollar debt currently owed by the B.C. Ferry  Corporation into the highways  and transportation function.  by Myrtle Winchester  A Pender Harbour and Egmont Chamber of Commerce  membership drive is now underway, an attempt to re-establish  the organization which suspended operations in 1984 when less-  than-quorum attendance at  most meetings made doing  regular business impossible.  Joyce Clay chaired a meeting  at the Pender Harbour Senior  Secondary School last Wednesday of 19 local businessmen,  property owners, and residents  to discuss the feasibility of reestablishing the chamber.  Clay stressed that membership in the chamber is open to  any resident of the area,  regardless   of   occupation.  "Years ago," she said, "the  chamber used to be called the  'Board of Trade', and that's  where the confusion is coming  from. The Chamber of Commerce today is not a business  organization. It is non-partisan,  non-sectarian, and non-  political."  About 50 area residents  recently signed their names on  sheets supporting the chamber's  ressurectibn, and the underlying  idea that an organized lobby  group is necessary to effectively  approach senior government offices for funding.  The restructuring of Pender  Harbour and Egmont may be  on the agenda of a future  chamber meeting.  Other projects of the  chamber may include tourism  promotion including operation  of the Madeira Park Info  Center (now run by the Community Club), upgrading of  community directory signs,  beautification of public property, and a welcome wagon.  Sunshine Coast Regional  District (SCRD) Area 'A'  Representative, Gordon  Wilson, who attended the  meeting, wholly supports the efforts to re-establish the Pender  Harbour and Egmont Chamber  of Commerce and offered any  assistance   he   could   give.  Anyone interested in the activities of the chamber is invited  to the next planning meeting on  April -IShat- 7j30 pm. The/place  of meeting will be announced.  aw _r��s' i*r &El1l  IPPER  BOYS  Trail Bay Centre Mali, Sechelt  are tracking the  KRICKET'S  Congo Collection  885-5255  School District No. 46 (Sunshine Coast)  Clerical Employment  Typing Tests  Persons interested in obtaining clerical  positions with this School District are  reminded that their applications will not be  considered unless they have obtained the  established standard in typing and clerical  aptitude tests.

Coast News, April 10,1989  ^KliJKSifil��ii  by Larry Grafton  Are you interested or involved in what our seniors here on  the peninsula and in Powell  River are doing, or trying to do  " for those of you who are retired  or those of you who hope to  retire in the next 10 years? If so,  ���he regional council meeting of  the Senior Citizens' Association  of B.C., which takes place in  our hall on April 12 (free lunch  at 11:30 am) should concern  you. Plan to attend by phoning  Olive Marshall so that she may  plan the catering of the lunch.  To further elaborate on the  regional council, the provincial  body is composed of over 100  branches which in turn are  broken down into small regions  of three or more branches which  are, of course, determined  geographically.  The chairman of each  regional council becomes a  member of the provincial  board, reporting the activities of  his or her particular region.  Meetings of each regional  council are held semi-annually.  It would be nice to have a  good turn-out on April 12. Why  don't you plan on attending?  PAINTING GROUP  Because of the above meeting  our Wednesday afternoon painting group has relinquished its  scheduled get-together in our  favour. And, while on the sub-,  ject of these artists, you should  drop in to the hall some  Wednesday afternoon and have  a look at what these people are  doing (some of them after only  a few short months of participation). Their talents will amaze  you!  PLANT SALE  This will be the last reminder  to our members for the prepara  tion of plants for our semiannual plant sale to be held in  our hall starting at 11 am, April  15. All donations of plants will  be thankfully received. And to  our potential customers, your  best selections can be had as  soon as the doors open at 11  am. Usually a very good selection is available.  The Careful Movers  Whether your next move takes you across the world or to a new  hometown in Canada, choose Allied.

At last week's  meeting of Sechelt Municipal  District, council received a letterj  from Choquer demanding toi  know why the water in front of  his property cannot be rezoned  1-3 instead of the proposed M-l.  ;   Sechelt Mayor Tom Meredith  pointed out that the planning  committee   has   had   five  meetings to discuss this issue  and that Mr. Choquer has been  present at each one.  "He is fully conversant with  the arguments for and against  this zoning. I don't think there's  any need to debate it with him  right now," Meredith said.  The water on either side of  Choquer's lease is zoned 1-3,  however that zoning is a land  zoning category which permits  such things as wrecking yards  and veterinary hospitals.  Y The Marine-1 zoning, which  is   proposed,   will   permit   a  marine equipment building and  repair operation as well as the  current use of the foreshore on  either side of Choquer's shop.  The rezoning will go to a  public hearing this Wednesday,  April 12 at 7 pm in the senior  citizens' hall. Meredith pointed  Out:that Mr. Choquer would  have every opportunity at that  time to present his arguments.  this spring to raise money for  the scholarship program for  mature women and the educa  tion fund for club members.

Coast News, April 10,1989  In the Trail Bay Mall on April 8, Mary Webb (left), Connie  Hobbs (centre) and Joan Crockett raised funds for the Canadian  Cancer Society's April fund drive. ���Vern Elliott photo  The Tourism Task Force  which spawned Travel Sunshine  Coast (TSC) as a marketing arm  needs to be reactivated, according to Kay Bailey. Bailey was  speaking to the Economic  Development Commission  (EDC) last week in an attempt  to secure funding for the next  few years which would enable  Travel Sunshine Coast to do  tourism promotion off the Sunshine Coast.  In her presentation to the  commission, Bailey acknowledged a severe decline- in  memberships but pointed out  that, without long term security  in funding, it was unrealistic to  begin a major membership  drive. She said there is a need to  educate realtors and merchants  on the value of tourism to this  area, and a need for coordina  tion between TSC and the  chambers of commerce who run  tourist information booths on  the Coast.  Bill Moore, economic - development officer, expressed  concern at the funding formula  reflected in the TSC budget  which called for four times as  much money from government  sources as from private  memberships.  "It seems a little out of  whack," he said. "With the loss  of the Partners in Enterprise  funding, we've been unable to  fund the chambers. It seems  that if we're going to look at  this it would be unfair not to be  funding the chamber information booths."  Area E Director Jim Gurney  suggested that for a long term  money commitment the group  needs a long term strategy.  "We started with a shotgun  approach:, just getting the image  out and known. We funded the  chambers, to gather information. That's all been done. Now  we haVe to put it together in a  long term plan."  Maurice Egan, chairman of  the EDC added, "You can't  plan strategy until you have  your organization together.  Right now everyone is operating  separately.'',;  Art Giroux voiced support  for Bailey's proposal and sympathy for TSC's situation, saying that the commission has  taken a bandaid approach to  funding them; in the past and,  "...it's time to put a little more  into that industry."  The commission agreed to  compromise with Jim Gurney's  suggestion that the $7500 requested to be broken down to  fund specific projects for the  time being. He urged Bailey to  reactivate the task force and bring the tourist industry together  with a long term strategy for  developing that industry on the  Sunshine Coast.  With a strategy in place, and  with the next set of elections  establishing a regional board of  directors for three years,  Gurney said that it would be  possible to look at a longer term  funding commitment.  Restructuring addendum  by Ellen Frith  Gibsons council voted to accept several additions to the  Restructuring Committee's final  report at their council meeting  April 4. The additions were put  forth by Alderman John  Reynolds.  Alderman Reynolds moved:  That the Town of Gibsons apply formally to the Minister of  Municipal Affairs requesting  that the referendum ballots be  counted separately inside and  outside the town;  That the Town of Gibsons  strike a committee to continue  discussionns on restructuring,  initiate negotiations with the  various ministries and prepare a  public information program including all available facts and  concerns;  That the board and senior  staff of the Sunshine Coast  Regional District (SCRD) be in  vited to meet with the senior  staff and council of the Town of  Gibsons to discuss the Moore  Report titled, 'A Report on  Local Government for the West  Howe Sound Community';  That the voters list for the  Town of Gibsons be updated  prior to the referendum.  Council discussed the prohibitive cost of updating a  voters list and less expensive  ways to the same end. It was  suggested perhaps the provincial  government, which requires an  enumeration of voters within  three years of a provincial election, might come to the rescue.  Alderman .Gerry Dixon said  that the Gibsons Volunteer Fire  Department were worried about  their ability to service a larger  municipal area safely. When the  time came, Mayor Strom said,  all those issues would be  carefully considered.

But there  are more hazards in the average  home than you may think.  Some of these can be deadly  unless parents or babysitters  take precautions to guard  against them."  So begins one of the brochures in a kit offered by Consumer and Corporate Affairs  Canada as part of the second  annual National Child Safety  Week held this year between  April 16 and 22.  This year's theme is Child  Safety: A Shared Responsibility, and the week is co-sponsored  by Consumer and Corporate  Affairs Canada and the Canadian Juvenile Product Associations.  "Last year, almost 3000  children under five years of age  were treated in the emergency  rooms of the six hospitals that  participate in our department's  accident injury reporting program," said Bernard Valcourt,  Minister, Consumer and Corporate Affairs, Canada. "Obviously this is only a small pro  portion of all the children seeking treatment in doctors' offices  and emergency rooms following  accidents."  Many accidents are caused by  burns, poisonings, or falls that  need never happen. Parents can  prevent such accidents by  careful supervision of children  and their surroundings and by.  knowing what safety features to  look for whenever they buy  baby products, toys or equipment.  Although government safety  regulations on a wide range of  children's furniture, toys and  equipment have been in force  for a number of years, many  parents buy items second hand  or come in possession of them  as hand-me-downs.  These items often do not  meet with present government  regulations and extra care  should be taken in using them.  Along with the more general  information of making a child's  environment safer, Consumer  and Corporate Affairs Canada  is issuing two warning bulletins.  They are asking parents to be  alert to the choking hazards of  broken toys, and to the dangers  School taxes debated  of some accordion-style baby  gates.  The department's Product  Safety Branch warned that  children under the age of three  have a tendency to put all types  of objects into their mouths.  Recently, a 22-month-old boy  died after a cone-shaped piece  of broken finger crayon lodged  in his throat.  Most crayons are intended  for use by children aged three  and older. However, certain  types, specifically finger  crayons, are used by children  under the age of three.  These children should be  supervised when they are playing with crayons and any  broken pieces should be disposed of immediately.  A warning concerning some  accordion-style baby gates  follows the recent death of a  21-month-old Ontario toddler.  The child died after her neck  became wedged in one of the  top Vs of the gate and was the  second such death to be  reported in Canada.  Consumer and Corporate Affairs Canada develops and enforces regulations and promotes  voluntary standards concerning  the safety of consumer products.  But, around children, even  the safest product can be harmful if not used or maintained  properly or if it is used in an unsafe manner or in dangerous circumstances.  Through awareness campaigns such as National Child  Safety Week, government hopes  to promote understanding between consumers and business of  important product safety issues.  tulft    shop  THRIFTY'S  AND HELP THE  GIBSONS  886-2488 or Box 598  Tues-Sat 10-4  ��>���->�� - - �����]* - - m. . - ���'-._ ��� . . �� ��� i_ ��� ��� my^mJmf-ek,'me - a. ���..' m,eei+^eM%&hm��i;m, �� mi'm.

For a $100,000 house this  will be a jump from the past  $9.10 per $1000 assessment to  $9.50 in 1989 and $10 in 1990.  In other words, the owner of  such a house would be paying  about $300 more a year in taxes,  or less than $3 a day. In some  cases, increased homeowner  grants will partially offset this.  Several people pointed out  that the real problem is the  change in government funding  policies for education which  shifted the tax burden from  commercial to residential property.

In Sechelt the Volunteer Action Centre will hold a tea this  Wednesday afternoon, April 12  from 2:30 to 4:30 in the Sechelt  Indian Band Hall. If your group  has not received an invitation by  telephone, please call the  Volunteer Action Centre  beforehand to arrange to attend. The number is 885-5881.  The centre certainly wants no  one to be inadvertently left out.  In Gibsons on Thursday  afternoon, April 13 from 2 to 4  the ladies auxiliary to Branch  109 will hold a tea in the legion  hall for volunteers in community work. All those who devote  their time and skills to community projects are invited to  attend.  Every effort has been made  to get in touch with all volunteer  groups in this region of the Sunshine Coast, but if your group  has not received a telephone  call, please call the president of  the auxiliary, Jean Donald, at  886-2411 and leave a message.  Nancy Baker, the Volunteer  Action Centre's referral coor-  e ot vo  dinator, says that the centre acts  as a referral service between  those persons who volunteer  their services in community  work and the groups who need  volunteers.  "We are not a placement service," she said, "but with 600  volunteers and 71 agencies  registered with us we are well  able to assist both volunteer and  agency.  "Most agencies recruit their  own volunteers and we only  assist in any way we can when  they request it of us.  "We have aided teenagers  who request experience in community projects," said Nancy,  "and to give only a few examples of the volunteer services  we are associated with there are  those who teach English as a second language, St. Mary's  hospital auxiliary, Big Brother  as it sets out to form a group on  the Coast, the Sunshine Coast  Handicapped Association and  the newly opened Kirkland Centre.  "Many agencies in community work only function with the  aid of volunteers.

Book  Week  by Pam Feichtner  On behalf of the Gibsons  Public Library, Mayor Diane  Strom has proclaimed April 15  to 21 as National Book Week.  Particular emphasis is given to  Canadian books and authors  during this week.  On Saturday, April 15, there  is to be a book sale in the  Marine Room, under the library  from 10 am to 4 pm. There is an  excellent selection of books to  choose from this year, many of  them almost new.  Recently an enthusiastic  group of concerned citizens met  to work towards forming a  'Friends of the Library Group'  to assist the Gibsons Public  Library stay alive and well.  The first official meeting will  be on April 19 at 7:30 in the  Marine Room. We encourage  everyone interested in the future  of the library to attend this  meeting.  The Town of Gibsons has  kindly donated the use of the  Marine Room for this occasion,  as their tribute to National  Book Week. The focus of the  group is to help the referendum  pass, raise funds and contribute  to community awareness.  National Book Week will also  be a Tine Free Week' and we  ask that all overdue books be  returned, so others may enjoy  them. Check under the beds, on  top of the fridge, the trunk of  the car, all places likely and  unlikely and bring them back,  no questions asked.  A library is a^vital part of any  community and National Book  Week is an excellent time to  make a visit to the library. Show  your support and enjoy the  wonderful world of books.  Film slides  On Friday, April 14 at 8 pm  at the Arts Centre in Sechelt,  Carol and Brett McGillivray  will share slides of the trip that  the McGillivray family took to  the Far East last summer with  their children Jake, age 13, and  Megan, age 9.

It cooked itself beautifully, was  ready in perfect time, but it was kind of difficult to wrench your  teeth away from it. Still...it kept them amused and that's not  always easy when you're camping!

Back in the 1860's, voluntary  organizations in Canada were  purely philanthropic in nature,  dispensing charity to the less  fortunate in society.  Things have changed. Today  some 13 million Canadians in  more than 60,000 registered  charities,(6,000 in B.C. alone)  volunteer, not just as a  charitable act, but as a form of  citizen participation.

The Wilson gang's first  assault on a federal target is  planned with even more meticulous care than usual. For  days, Herb and the others study  the route of the armoured mail  truck as it makes its way along  First Street from the railway  station. At the junction of  Alameda and First, the truck  crosses the Southern Pacific  tracks. The intersection is  guarded by gates, controlled by  a watchman in a tower.  Harry Davis, the watchman,  is an elderly and rather naive  fellow. He becomes a pivotal  figure in Herb's plan of attack.  One evening, Harry Davis  receives an unexpected visitor.  He is a big man in a dark suit  with the cocksure look of a  racktrack wisenheimer. But the  credentials he proffers certify  him to be a federal officer, a  member of the dry squad,  charged with enforcing the  Volstead Act. Davis, who prides  himself on being a scrupulously  law-abiding citizen, is suitably  impressed.  "We'd like to enlist your  cooperation on a liquor smuggling case," declares the agent  crisply. "We have information  that certain bootleggers are using an armoured government  mail truck to transport their  hooch.  "You probably know the  vehicle I mean. Well, tomorrow  night, we plan to ambush these  criminals. What we want you to  do, Mr. Davis, is drop the gate  when they show up so that we  can effect the arrest." Y  "Well, I'll be jiggered," says  Davis, goggle-eyed with excitement. "I know the truck you  mean. Never would have taken  those fellers for gangsters. But  sure, officer, I'll do just like you  say. Those rascals deserve to be  behind bars."  Back at Joe Bertsche's apartment on Alexandria Street, Cox  almost doubles over with mirth,  as he recounts the incident to  Herb and the others, a couple of  hours later. "You should have  seen that silly old guy's face. He  really thought I was a fed. He  fell for it hook, line and  sinker," gasps Cox.  "By God, Cox," laughs Lou,  "if you get much better at this  acting business, they'll be signing you up for the flickers.'"  Even reserved Herb allows  himself a polite chuckle. "Excellent work indeed," he says.  "Well, gentlemen, I would venture to say that things are all set  for our little operation."  It is March 3, 1921...zero  hour. At approximately 7:30  that evening, the five gang  members gather again at the  Alexandria, run over the details  a final time and make their way  to First and Alameda.  Herb waits in the car to watch  for the truck. Bertsche, Cox and  Stahl position themselves on the  street near the gates. Cox climbs  the tower to make sure Harry  Davis gets his signals straight.  The old watchman, blissfully  oblivious that he is about to expedite a highjacking, greets Cox  like an old friend. "Tonight's  really the night, eh?" he asks  excitedly.  "Yes siree," says Cox. "My  men are stationed and everything's ready to go. Soon as I  get the high sign, you drop the  gates and we'll have those rumrunners dead to rights."  Davis grins like a kid on  Christmas morning. "Gosh, I  never thought I'd actually be  helping the G men," he says  happily.  To be continued...

Isn't that nice. Just what  you needed, right?  This quote was taken from  the article 'Crystal Lightlink  1989' in the spring edition of the  Canadian Holistic Healing  Association newsletter. The  crystal light link, by the by, is  coordinated with energy shifts  and influxes. This one being on  Sunday, April 16.  For those who are having  trouble keeping track, let's just  do a quick review. There was  the first World Peace Meditation on December 31, 1986.  That's become an annual,  worldwide event hitting on  December 30, actually, in this  part of the world, so that it's  coordinated with people all over  the world who are meditating  on peace.  There was the Harmonic  Convergence on August 16 and  17, 1987. This was a time when  there was a shift, an energy intensification, directed toward  the earth and its inhabitants, to  begin a purification process  which was to last five years. The  end point appears to be a kind  of mass transformation into  more evolved beings. (I'll vote  for that).  In some way connected to,  and aiding the process, there are  supposed to have been kind of  'mini harmonic convergences'  starting on February 15, 1988  and reoccurring every three  months on the 15th day.  Now the Crystal Lightlink  1989 may be nothing. There is a  lot of'hype'going.on these days  and, as Doonesbury said, this  might just be one more excuse  for a craft fair.  On the other hand, none of  these 'events' cost anything if  you simply use them as a time to  do a little extra meditation, contemplation or prayer.  According to the aforementioned article, on April 16, there  will be a massive activation and  reprogramming of all crystals  and crystalline structures on the  earth. That includes everything  from your favourite pet rock to  Second  Mariner's  Fair  The Gibsons Yacht Club invites everyone to their second  annual Mariner's Fair to be held  Saturday, May 13 at the Gibsons Marina, starting at noon  "until 5 pm.  Now is the time to start rounding up all your equipment that  you would like to sell, swap or  even to look for something to  buy.  Please reserve your table early by phoning Carol at 886-2666  'or Eric at 886-7120. The cost  per table is $10 and may be,  shared. Anyone wanting to'  volunteer for the food and beer  garden phone Eric.  your body.  There have been 13 focal  points for this energy named,  one of them being Vancouver  Island. My personal suspicion is  that the focal point is here on  the Sunshine Coast, they just  think we're part of the island.  Bearing that in mind, there  may be some ways to use this  time to help you make the  changes in your life that you've  been wanting. Take out all your  crystals, pet rocks and personal  jewelry and clean them, finishing up with a rinse in cold  flowing water. (A running tap is  just fine.) Then keep them in  your hands as you pray or  meditate on April 16.  Secondly, on a more personal  basis, this would seem to be the  ideal time for resolutions. I  would suggest that you take  some time, especially around  dawn but anytime during the  day will do, and visualize the  kind of person you want to be.  Imagine any old habits, patterns or programming that you  want to eliminate, being washed  out of you by a white light,  coming through the top of your  head.  Then picture yourself acting  in healthier, happier ways in  possible future situations.  My source warns that, besides an additional confusion in  daily living you may experience  physical sensations such as  tingling, twitches and ringing in  the ears following this time, as  your body adjusts to the cellular  changes.  As always, I have no personal  knowledge that this date will  have special significance. But as  long as it doesn't cost you  anything, extra time spent in  meditation and prayer, doing  positive visualization can't hurt.  It just might help you, as an individual, and the world in  general. So why not try it?  Gardening notes  by Marguerite  There's a special day not fixed on any calendar when spring  comes to the gardener. There's  something in the air which appeals to the heart of the good  gardener and beginner, and the  warm, sunny mornings reawaken us.  It's a good idea to start the  many spring gardening jobs  with caution, in order to  climatize our bodies to exertion,  and not have sore, aching backs  and necks, etc.  Work in small time limits,  rest, have a break, then continue again. Do a little each day.  It's most encouraging and very  good exercise.  Everyone agrees that mixing  growing plant and growing  children is a good way to help  make the world better. If the  young child's natural world is a  world of play, let the gardening  be playful.  Have a family mystery box of  old seed packets and see what  happens, or, schools could have  an experiment station to show  how plants grow. It might result  in a career in horticulture.  The Gibsons Garden Club  are doing its bit by allotting a  bursary at Elphinstone school  for any who may qualify for  further studies.  We are also sponsoring  another 'largest sunflower' contest for kids. Get your 'Russian  Giants' or 'Pacific Giants' or  'Gigahteous' or 'Manchurian*  seeds now. They are a hardy annual, and should be planted the  latter part of April.  Coast News, April 10,1989  13.  Sayonara,  friends  by Gail Sangster  Once again we have had to  say sayonara to our friends  from Japan. It has been a  wonderful and exciting past  three weeks, filling each day  with something new and watching a bond form with one  another that will last a lifetime.  This program is a wonderful  experience and would not be  possible without the families  that take these students into  their homes. Thank you  everyone for your kindness.  I would particularly like to  thank: Marie Connor, Carol  Skytte and John, Tovia, Hannah, Willie and friend for the  great afternoon of curling; the  Toynbee's for being so kind; the  host families that helped with  carpooling; Sylvia Blackwell for  her beautiful cakes; Ken and  Mike Eidet for all the 'extras'  they did for the students; the  students and teacher of  Chatelech cooking class for providing the students with a lunch;  and Gibsons Travel and Terry  and Vicky from Westcoast Explorers Club for making our  day trips in their new bus so enjoyable.  The next group of students  are scheduled to arrive on the  Sunshine Coast in July. Anyone  wishing to take part in this  cultural exchange please contact  Gail at 886-3783.

Two of us in the office were absolutely starving to death and felt we'd like something really  tasty for lunch. What to have?  My friend came up with a stroke of sheer genius - "Let's  get some fish and chips from the Sechelt Fish Market - there's  such a delicious aroma when you jpass it."  Not content with just the fish and chip order, she decided  on the Sechelt Special, ample for us to share. It was indeed  special. There was one beautifully cooked piece of cod, two  deep fried oysters and two deep fried prawns, together with a  generous portion of scrumptious chips. The price for all this  was only $6.55!  The food here does not consist of frozen strips of fish zapped in a microwave - it is fresh fish deep fried while you wait,  and on nice sunny days one can sit outside to eat and watch  the world go by in downtown Sechelt.  Although the Sechelt Fish Market specializes in fish and  chips, they also provide a variety of sandwiches including  shrimp salad, shrimp and avocado, smoked salmon, lox and  bagel, tea, coffee, juice and pop.  This is not a "Quick Take-out" place - be prepared to  watch and wait while your meal is freshly cooked. It doesn't  take long and is well worth waiting for.  In keeping with tradition, you get your fish and chips  wrapped in newspapers to keep them nice and hot till you're  ready to eat.  The Sechelt Fish Market is open from 10 am to 6 pm Monday to Saturday and is closed Sundays.

March 24  to April 1. Teams from  Canada, the U.S. and Finland  participated. I had the opportunity of attending the tournament and interviewing some  players as well as the coach and  manager of the Finnish team.  Upon entering the arena at  Port Coquitlam I was impressed  by the organizers' efforts for the  event. I was greeted with cordiality and enthusiasm. The  foyer was filled with inspired  players, hopeful parents and  cheering fans, relatives and  friends and an aura of intense  excitement filled the air.  A group of intent hockey  players from Grand Forks were  discussing the Finnish/Edmonton game after the second  period when I approached  them.  Kelly Soobotin introduced  himself as the captain and a  defenceman on the Grand  Forks team. He commented  favourably on the hospitality  the team had experienced while  at the tournament but his only  concern was apprehension at  the prospect of playing against  teams from larger centres.  Soobotin said that coming  from a rather small town like  Grand Forks it was a bit  "scary" to compete against  teams from Vancouver, Edmonton or Port Coquitlam.  But, up to this point, they had  won all four games they had  played.  I also had the occasion of  conversing with a 10 year  'veteran' referee, Cary  Blackburn from Maple Ridge.  He   stated   that   the   hockey  players in this particular tournament were skilled players but  added the body contact was not  as visible as during the regular  season.  He felt the Finnish team did  not appear to be as physical as  their Canadian and American  counter-parts. Blackburn was  also impressed by the respect  <��� shown the referees by the community and the participating  teams in general.  After the Finnish/Edmonton  game I met with the Finnish  head coach Kari Andersson to  discuss his view on hockey.  The Finnish team the Karhu-  Kissat, Team 73 from Helsinki  was honoured to be playing in  Canada, or as Mr. Andersson  said, "the mother country of  hockey."  The Finnish team consisted  of 22 players and 17 other people including the coach, assistant coaches, trainers and  parents. The total cost of the  trip was $60,000 (Canadian)  which was raised from sponsors, parents and various  miscellaneous hockey fund-  raising functions such as bottle  drives, etc. Each hockey player  contributed $1400 while the  parents donated $1600.  On this particular trip they  played in Calgary (North Central) and won by an impressive  score of 25 to 2, March 20. The  second game was against the  Edmonton Athletics, March 23,  which the Finns won 10 to 6.  Other games won by the Finnish team included North Vancouver Blues 7 to 0, March 25;  Port Coquitlam Vikings 6 to 3,  March 26; and on March 28  they beat the Edmonton Canadians 4 to 3. However, in their  final game of the tournament  against South .Edmonton, the  Finns succumbed to a 4 to 2  ' S.C Golf'& Country Club  Spring opener  by Frank Nanson  r Ladies are reminded once  again that the spring "or season  opener luncheon is on this Tuesday! April 11. For those who  will be golfing there will be pairs  of mixed 9-hole and 18-hole  chosen to play as teams in a fun  contest which will open with a  ^shot-gun' start at 8:30. You  must get there early to be  organized into teams, so 8 am  may be a good arrival time.  The 18-hole ladies were in a  playoff on Tuesday qualifying  for the 2-ball tournament which  is to be played at the Newlands  Course. Qualifiers were the  team of Marion Reeves and  Isabel Rendleman with a net 78  and next to them were Ruby  Head and Pat Scarr with a net  79.  ������'''/{���The winners in the general  play were as follows: Connie  Grant with a net 71, first flight;  Joe Emerson with a net 69, se  cond flight; and Marg Hunter  net 72, third flight.  -The 9-hole ladies played using  irons only in a low gross tournament on Tuesday. This makes it  more difficult for the 'big hitters' using their number one  wood, and sometimes results.in  the 'iron lovers' taking the  prize. The winners of the first  flight was Margo Matthews and  of second flight was Shirley  Gurr.  The senior men had a turnout  of 76 on Thursday, who paid no  attention to the weather reports  of the oncoming monsoon.  Luck would have it that the  storm hit after the 9 holes had  been played. Vic Vaughan took  the honours with the low gross.  Low net winners were Glynn  Davies, first; Jim Smythe, second; and Larry Farr, third.  Norm 'dead-eye' Constantine  was closest to the pin on the  drive to the 8th hole.  1+1  Revenue Canada  Taxation  Revenu Canada  Impot  Tax questions?  We've got the answers!

In Finland there are seven  divisions in hockey starting with  6/7 year olds 'G' Division; 8/9  'F Divison; 10/11 'E' Divison;  12/13 'D' Divison; 14/15 'C  Division; 16/17 ��B' Division;  'A' equivalent to the Canadian  Junior 'A' status, 18/20 year  olds.  Body contact commences in  the 'D' Division, 12/13 year  olds. From the age of 15 years  and older the hockey players are  involved in body building at a  gym as well as developing 'on  ice- skills.  To enroll a hockey player in  the 'C Divison (Bantam) the  cost is approximately $600 to  $700 per season, while the cost  for an aspiring hockey player in  the 'G' Division (6/7) is $250 to  $300 per year.  The cost of a pair of skates  for a six year old is $200 to $300  while equipment costs $500 per  player. The cost of a hockey  stick is approximately $20.  However, the cost of a pair of  skates at the Bantam level is  $700 to $800.  After the age of eight years  up, the hockey players are permitted to play in hockey tournaments, while under that age  they play in one tournament per  season. As in Canada the  parents drive or carpool their  children to the various hockey  centres where games are played.  When the players have attained hockey status they can compete for a position with the  Suomen Meisters League, the  Finnish National League, which  includes the 19/20 year old age  group. This is the equivalent to  our National Hockey League  and players are paid up to  $125,000 per season.  The Finns also have a Recreational League where the ice ren  tal is $75 per hour.  Mr. Andersson said a great  deal of emphasis in Finland is  placed on stick handling,  skating and body contact. He  added blatantly, that they were  here in Canada for one reason,  and that is to win.  He stated that they 'hate to  lose'. I interjected at this point  and asked Mr. Andersson if this  was the most important aspect  of the tournament to him as opposed to the social aspect and he  very emphatically stated "yes".  However, upon interviewing  Jani Ahonen (16), he seemed to  enjoy the social interaction  commenting that the highlight  of the trip to him was skiing at  Whistler. Jiri Bertula, very  timidly added the best part were  the "girls".  Mr. Andersson gave credit  "for a job well done" by the  organizers of the Port Coquitlam Bantam Hockey Tournament. He was impressed by  the billeting arrangements and,  also, the cordial reception given  to them by the organizers and  the fans.  He said that a New Year's  Tournament will be held in  Helsinki, Finland December 28,  1989/January 1, 1990, and he  asked that I extend his personal  invitation to all Bantam teams  considering entering this tournament.  Regardless of the Finnish  philosophy that to win is of  paramount importance, the  young players on the Finnish  team appeared to enjoy  themselves in not only competing against the Canadian and  American teams but also in  cultivating new friendships and  being introduced to a different  lifestyle. There were unforgettable memories they will be bringing back to Finland  that   will   last   a lifetime.

Editor:  As the School Board prepares  its budget this year there will no  doubt be blaring headlines  about soaring tax rates. We  should of course be outraged,  but let us make sure that the  target of our wrath is the appropriate one.  The practice of the Socred  provincial government over the  past six years has been to  systematically decrease the provincial proportion of public  school funding, while increasing  the necessity of residential taxation by local boards. The province's budget can look good  while school boards must take  the flak in order to raise essential funds.  At the same time, provincial  funding for private schools has,  been   growing   by   leaps  and  lil  ���.r��  TERMINAL  Forest Products Ltd.

Forst, Director  Sunshine Coast NDP Quo  Entertainment of  the restless  Editor:  RE: PALS (People Attracting Longterm Slushfurids)  I propose a new organization:  SLAP (Sechelt Legions Against  Pals).  I believe most people in our  area above all, wish to keep  their taxes low. They certainly  do not wish to subsidize the  entertainment of the restless.  If government grants are  available, they should go to  seniors who  have  paid  their  dues, to their kids, to society  and to their country. Least of  all, these monies should be  spent on kids and yuppies.  They should learn to use and  appreciate what nature put here  abundantly. It could amuse  young and old endlessly.  Don't marry a mate whom  you wish to change, don't move  to the country if it is the city you  prefer.  Ms D. Dulson  Important hearing  Editor:  On Wednesday, April 12 at 7  pm, there is to be a very important public hearing at the  seniors centre in Sechelt, concerning the application for increased industrial use of Porpoise Bay.  It is common knowledge that  pollution in the lower inlet is  already rearing its ugly head  and any additional industrialization almost certainly  will destroy the fragile ecosystem of this body of water.  I am appealing, therefore, to  all who care about the environment, especially our own, to  come out to this hearing and  voice your concerns.  A. Rowe  Help sought  Editor:  Would you please assist us in  contacting B.C. ratepayers'  associations by printing this letter in your paper?  Our purpose is to form a  province-wide coalition of  ratepayers' associations. A  number of associations have expressed their approval and wish  to participate. Should there be a  ratepayers' association in your  town, they are requested to join  us in this project.  The Hope Ratepayers have  been active for the past 17 years  and are aware of all the complexities involved in a  ratepayers' association and its  place in the community. We are  willing and prepared to initiate  the formalities and paperwork  involved in this project.  Jim Fontaine, Secty.  Hope Ratepayers' Assn.  Box 1698, Hope, B.C.
