 'i^f-j^^.f^-^.-: ���  52  s  n  3  \i  B  ^,a��ve Library  lament Bui7dings  Dy iiwv   Drafting a by-law with sharp  teeth in it to really put the bite  on pit bulls, the Sunshine Coast  Regional District (SCRD) dog  control committee January 12  decided to recommend fines as  high as $5000 for owners of  vicious dogs.  Committee members meeting  at Sechelt agreed bull terriers  shouldn't be singled out and  named in the new by-law, but  that the new law should apply to  vicious dogs generally.  SCRD dog catcher Howard  89.8  a child recently had  r_ ��bitten off by a dog.  "That's disfigurement. There  should be a serious penalty," he  said.  Enforcement officer Byard  related how he recently went into the bush after some suspect  dogs.  "They surrounded me. I had  no weapon. They started nipping. There's a lot of them along  the power line," he said.  He was bitten twice and  claimed Workmen's Compensation.  The committee agreed the fee  for impounding a vicious dog  should be $200. Committeeman  Harry Almond noted the fee for  impounding being considered  was $20, "but it really is a big  job when it's a vicious dog," he  said.  SCRD Chairman Peggy Connor suggested they double the  $20. But the committee went for  $200.  Committee member Bernice  Chamberlin said the maximum  fine for repeated or unusually  serious offences of harboring a  vicious dog should be several  thousand dollars. "These (dogs)  can be really damaging," she  said.  Committee member Len  Wray of Gibsons, an SPCA inspector, suggested a minimum  fine of $500 and a maximum of  $5000.  "You're brutal," said committee chairman Brett  McGillivray, an SCRD director.  "But they're brutal,"  retorted Wray.  "Clearly there's a measure of  judgment. Once it's (the by-law)  published, people are going to  get the feeling that we're  serious," said chairman  McGillivray.  McGillivray said, "I think we  can have this (by-law) in place  in two weeks." (The recommendation has to be approved finally yet by the SCRD board.)  The committee decided to  adopt the vicious dog by-law  ticket form used by West Vancouver, as recommended by  their enforcement officer.  Chairman McGillivray started the committee deliberations  by introducing a report on a  possible draft by-law. The  report contained various terms  taken from numerous other  such by-laws now law in various  Vancouver area communities.  North Vancouver has the  same amounts* for fines that the  committee chose to recommend. But North Vancouver  has the added maximum alternative of a jail sentence, it was  said.  The committee agreed there  should be a minimum, $1080  fine set so judges couldn't let  culprits off too easily. ';  "We should really put the  bite on them," said the enforcement officer. -:  "We need a by-law with teeth  in it," said chairman  McGillivray.  SCRD dog fines don't apply  in Sechelt or Gibsons.

NDP nomination  Sechelt primary school  teacher and human rights activist, Roger Lagasse, has  declared his intention to seek  the New Democratic Party  nomination for the coming provincial election.  In a prepared news release at  the weekend, Lagasse announced his candidacy stating: "I  have been approached by a local  group, have received encouragement from other individuals  and, with the full support of my  wife, Denise, I decided to get involved."  Lagasse, the 32 year old  father of two, believes the next  provincial election will focus on  environmental, human rights,  conflict and development issues.  "The dioxin contamination  of Howe Sound and the oil slick  crisis on the West Coast will ensure the environment will play  an important role in our constituency (Mackenzie)," said  Lagasse.  ROGER LAGASSE  NDP CANDIDATE  "A growing number of  residents are becoming aware  and concerned about the proximity of the Nanoose underwater weapons testing range in  Georgia Strait just 12 miles  from Halfmoon Bay. U.S.  nuclear weapons capable submarines, barred from densely  populated American ports use  Vancouver Harbour ��� and Nanoose Bay over the protests of  local residents. It's high time  B.C. were declared a nuclear  free zone."  According to Lagasse, the  provincial government is in  violation of the United Nations  Universal Declaration of  Children's Rights.  "The right to equal opportunity for education is  guaranteed by the United Nations. By increasing tuition  dramatically over the year, the  government has effectively  reduced access to post-  secondary education for  students from average income  ba6kgrounds.  "By allowing public schools  to be underfunded while increasing subsidies to private  schools, the provincial government is promoting educational  elitism," he said.  Lagasse said by shifting the  tax burden onto local school  boards, regional disparities are  growing where rich communities can afford to finance  schools adequately while less affluent districts have to run on  shoelace budgets.

She was a passenger in a northbound vehicle involved in a head-on accident with a southbound vehicle approximately one kilometre north of Francis Peninsula Road  in Madeira Park.  Mattice was taken by ambulance to St. Mary's Hospital  and was pronounced dead upon arrival. The recent heavy  snowfall had left the roads icy and driving conditions poor,  according to the RCMP Highway Patrol.  Earthquakes are a virtual certainty in the Sunshine Coast  area. One is overdue, retired  local engineer Dennis Shuttleworth told the Sunshine  Coast emergency executive  committee at Sechelt December  12.  Because of the geology below  this area there are movements in  the various sections of the  earth's crust that could produce  earthquakes from five different  sources. Some tremors could be  as strong or stronger that the recent Armenian earthquake or  the famous San Francisco earthquake, engineer Shuttleworth  said.  It's not a question of if there  is an earthquake here, it's a  question of when, where and  how much. Thflikeliest epicen-  r tre for an eaithquake here is  under the lower Gulf Islands, he  said.  The major risk here from  earthquakes is the possibility  hills will slide into the sea. Shuttleworth mentioned the School  Road hill in Gibsons as an example, but warned the same  thing can happen to any such  hill along the Sunshine Coast.  Advocating preparation for  any such disaster, Shuttleworth  said there should be plans in  each local area. Various communities could be expected to be  cut off due to sinking of sections of Highway 101, or burial  of stretches of the highway  under rock and rubble.  Communication (both power  and telephone) could be cut.  Available machinery would be  used to rescue people and  wouldn't be available for road  building..  Rescue units should be considered for each local area.  Needed would be heat or sound  detectors, perhaps sniffer dogs,  to find people underneath rubble.  "The time to do it is now, not  the day after. If they'd been  prepared in Armenia, they  would have saved a lot more  lives," said Shuttleworth.  The Sunshine Coast is highly  fortunate in the type of structures it has, from the point of  view of earthquakes. Wood  frame homes are very flexible  when enduring earthquake  temors and stand up well, he  said.  Unreinforced concrete isn't  flexible and falls apart. Reinforced concrete holds together  against breakage and stands up  well if on a flexible foundation.  The most dangerous building  ji an earthquake is one built of  bricks. Brick chimneys and  fireplaces are also earthquake  hazards, as evidenced parf  ticularly in the Armenian and in  Italian earthquakes, the  engineer said.  "Glass is a lethal weapon On  a quake). If distorted it will  fail," he said, warning that  heavy glass covered pictures  should be removed if they're  hanging over beds.  Tall furniture should be  secured to wooden uprights in  the walls, or it will fall on occupants, he said. A booklet on  earthquakes is available and  copies have been placed in local  libraries.  The Sunshine Coast Regional  District (SCRD) board's  emergency measures committee  was also warned about several  other potential disasters for  which advance planning could:  be considered. These were:  airliner crashes, oil spills at sea,  and hazardous material spills on  land.  SCRD emergency planning  co-ordinator   Arthur   McPhee  said in view of the recent airliner  crashes in  England and our  location within the holding pat-;  tern area for Vancouver airport,  we should be prepared for the I  possibility   of   such   disasters  here. In the recent British crash, ���  18 ambulances were required ."  for about 170 passengers. Here:f.-  in the recent disaster simulation -���  involving 30 people we ran out-*.;  of ambulances.

This could -.  happen to us. I can't unders- -[:  tand why PEP wasn't called (to J:  co-ordinate the oil spill cleanup -  on land)," he said.  "Prevention is so much more :  important than reaction," said :  McPhee.  MacLarty quits Sechelt counci  Another Sunshine Coast  politician has withdrawn from  .public office citing health concerns. On January 11, Sechelt  Alderman   Nancy   MacLarty  submitted her resignation from  the municipal district council.  In her letter to Clerk-  administrator Malcolm Shanks,  MacLarty   wrote,   "Over  the.  past month it has become increasingly evident to me and my  cardiologist that the stresses of  public office have worked to the  detriment of my health. I have  been advised that to continue as  . alderman would only cause me  further health problems.  "Therefore I feel that to continue in my elected capacity  would not only be putting my  health in jeopardy but would  also be unfair to council and the  electorate. I would be unable to  work with and for them with all  the strength and vigor the job  deserves."  "I feel badly," MacLarty  told the Coast News. "I'm not a  quitter and I feel as if I'm letting  people down, the people who  depend on me.  "But I want them to know  that I'm still here to listen and  point them in the right direction  when they need help. That's the  part of being alderman that I  liked best."  Closing dates for nomination  for the by-election to replace  MacLarty is February 13.  Should a by-election be held it  will take place on March 4.  rfjfreStoSifc^SiSIfciS  ,.-. w-*-., Jl .*,��r^Kc-**-^^'^  ��:i*ci!?*^ptfzB*l&* Coast News, January 16,1989  lUHHiMHMmmMwiwwimumi nmrnamm minima���m^www^  Stop the abuse  The British Columbia Medical Association, in full  voice, is cheering for the provincial government's recently  announced attack on alcohol and drug abuse.  The attack is whole-heartedly supported by this  newspaper. So should it be supported up and down every  street, road and byway of the Sunshine Coast.  The reasons for this are too compelling and numerous  to mention. One of them that we put on the top of our list  is that hundreds of thousands of children are born each  year in North America, children who are emotionally and  physically crippled, retarded, handicapped or nonfunctional to the point of being human vegetables, all  because their mothers use alcohol and illicit drugs.  We say all that is too horrible to contemplate, too awful  and too terrible to tolerate!  As part of the provincial anti-abuse effort, a Sunshine  Coast citizen organization is starting to work. It's called  Action: Drug and Alcohol Service Society. It deserves full  public support (see story elsewhere in this edition).  One-third of all B.C. hospital admissions are alcohol  related, says Dr. David Blair, B.C. medical society president.  "British Columbia has the highest per capita consumption of alcohol, as well as the highest prevalence of traffic  accidents, suicide and cirrhosis of the liver in Canada. Important next steps for B.C. should include returning our  legal drinking age to 21 and labelling alcoholic beverages  as a health hazard," says Dr. Blair in a January 5 news  release endorsing the provincial government's $137 million  three-year attack on alcohol and drug abuse.  Dr. Blair said the medical association policy urges the  B.C. government to move now to bring our province into  step with new U.S. legislation under which alcohol products will have to carry warning labels after November  1989.  "This especially makes sense with the Canada/U.S.  trade agreement coming into effect. Otherwise B.C.  alcohol products will have to be packaged differently for  sale south of the border," he said.  The medical society president also said the need for raising the drinking age to its previous level of 21 is supported  by statistics on drinking/driving deaths and injuries  statistics which caused all U.S. states to raise their drinking  age.  Facts about the property destruction and human life  devastation are to be publicized and emphasized during the  three-year provincial anti-substance abuse campaign.  Hopefully this will produce an emotional allergic reaction  in the public mind against all these mind-altering and intoxicating habit-forming things.  It seems clear we must either endure the havoc drugs  and alcohol cause, or else get them out of our lives.  To make the B.C. campaign pay off, a lot of people are  going to have to turn their backs on drugs and alcohol.  Hopefully they will!  th�� filet of the COAST NEWS  5 YEARS AGO  With half the local health unit's three nurses away on  maternity leave, nurse visits to schools were suspended  by the medical health officer because of cuts in the provincial health budget.

N,  Mainstream Canada  Excessive collateral  demands hit growth  by Ann M. Smith  One of the main reasons it is  so difficult to sustain any meaningful pressure on the very  powerful banking community in  this country is because most  financial institutions are experts  at deflecting criticism. Lord  knows they've had enough  practice.  It will be interesting then to  follow the bankers' reaction to  an enormous and not very flattering study recently. compiled  by the Canadian Federation of J  Independent Business. This  study, the most comprehensive  ever undertaken on small  business financing in Canada,  shows that one third of small  firms in "the country are  dissatisfied with the size, terms  and transaction details relating  to their financing experiences.  Conducted in the fall of 1987,  CFIB sent the complex, four  page survey to approximately  10,000 of its 80,000 members  and then spent nearly a full year  analyzing the results it extracted  from the 3,217 respondents.  (The regional breakdown, sample size and composition used  for the survey are representative  of the entire small business sector in Canada.)  One of the most significant  findings gleaned from this study  was conclusive evidence that  many of the problems small  business people face when dealing with their bankers is  primarily the result of internal  bank structure and lending  policies as opposed to so called  risks and or shortcomings of the  individual small business.  According to the CFIB's  Chief Economist and Director  of Research, Catherine Swift,  the very high turnover rate of  bank personnel has a particularly negative effect on terms of  financing.  "Account managers," she  says, "especially those specializ  ing in small business, are simply  not staying in their jobs long  enough to develop an adequate  understanding of their clients'  needs, especially in rural areas  of the country.  "We have found that this  high turnover rate (30 percent  said they had faced three or  more account managers over a  three year period) negatively affects the terms and conditions  of financing offered to the small  business client."  And once the problem with  account, managers was identified, Swift says, a host of  other irritants began to surface.  One in three respondents, for  example, cited collateral as their  most significant concern. It  seems, then, that most banks  are making lending decisions  based on an entrepreneur's  ability to provide collateral. Excessive collateral demands, adds  Swift, very often stifle potential  growth within this leading job  creation sector.  "Dealing with the small J  business owner only once a year \  just doesn't provide these firms \  with the depth of relationship ;  required to demonstrate their ;  personal ability or commitment ;  to the business." ;  Because of the sheer scope I  and size of this study, it would :  be impossible to cover all of the ;  findings in this short length. In \  the weeks to come, however, we '  will be digging into the specifics *  of this 112 page document and, \  at the same time, looking for *  ways   to   improve   the   small ;.  business/banker relationship. If J'.  the   financial   community   is \  serious about improved service >*  to this all important customer ;-  group, it will listen to the fin- >  dings and recommendations in- ^  itiated from this report. /-  ******** \L  Editor's   Note:   Ann   Smith ,~  prepares this column for this >  newspaper on  behalf of the >  Canadian   Federation   of   In- >  dependent Business. >  Union viewpoint  Environmental goals  of pulp firm sincere  by Hugh McNab  I am writing to those readers  who are curious about Howe  Sound Pulp and Paper's  discharge of organochlorines  and dioxins in Howe Sound. By  illustrating a sequence of events  over the last few years, perhaps,  for some, a clearer picture of  the controversy will be painted.  My viewpoint and knowledge  of this issue stems from my role  as a union representative on the  joint labour/management Environmental Committee. I've  worked at HSPP for over 12  years in the bleach plant (the  origin of organochlorines, and  dioxins).  In 1985 the Environmental  Protection Agency in the USA  released a National Dioxin  Report targeting the use of  chlorine in the bleach plant as a  source of dioxin pollution.  On November 26, 1986, the  Swedish government confirmed  the findings and intensified their  research leading to a regulation  of dioxins produced by pulp  and paper mills, hospital incinerators, leaded gas, and  other sources. The TOCL emissions level of 3.2 kg/ton from  bleached pulp in August 1988  was going to be further reduced  to 1.5 kg/ton.  December 14, 1987, Howe  Sound Pulp and Oji Paper of  Japan merged 50-50 to create  the Howe Sound Pulp and  Paper Company. Modernization and expansion plans were  announced, costing $635  million. The costs now being  realized are $1 billion, with offshore financing to complete the  remainder of the project. At  that time the decision was made  to make HSPP the cleanest  anywhere, using the latest proven technology. Money was not  to be a hindrance.  On May 16, 1988, Environmental Canada, Health  and Welfare, and Fisheries and  Oceans released the results of a  dioxin, furan study undertaken  at 14 pulp and paper mills in  four provinces. Higher levels  had been identified in the  digestive gland of the dungeness  crabs at Port Mellon, Woodfibre and Prince Rupert.  At this time 20 ppt was a level  of concern for Health and  Welfare which later in August  1988 adopted the Nato Tonic  Equilvancy (TEQ) Standard used in European countries as a  means to evaluate the furans,  and organochlorines in relation  to 2378 TCDD for the sake of  regulations. The results of the  May 16 study for Port Mellon  showed crab muscle zero for  TCDD, 400 ppt TCDF (40  TEQ), crab 'butter' or digestive  gland 642 ppt 2378 TCDD,  24,968 (249 TEQ) TCDF.  The dioxin and furan concentrations are measured in parts  per trillion (ppt). To give some  idea of scale, 1 ppt is equal to  about 1 second in 32,000 years,  or ,5mm of the distance on a  journey to the moon. Health  and Welfare Canada has expressed these tiny amounts as  'worrisome' and is now following Sweden's lead and is asking,  'Is any level of dioxin safe?'  The EPA in the US has  established a level of concern of  1 ppb (1 part per billion). A  scandal erupted when the EPA  was taken to court for suppressing its own evidence on the problem.  In October of 1988 I made  phone calls to Paprican (Pulp  and Paper Research Institute of  Canada) which revealed they  were organizing a sampling program for the pulp mills in  Canada beginning with B.C.  The testing will be done in Port  Mellon during this coming  February.  Around this time the wood  preservative pentachlorophenal  was found to be a precursor to  dioxins in the bleach plant when  these contaminated wood chips  were used. The company instructed its chip suppliers they  would not be accepting contaminated wood chips.  I advised our members at the  October general meeting concerning the health hazard in  eating local prawns and crabs.  In November I spoke to a  crab fisherman off the dock at  Port Mellon, and we discussed  our concerns. It was puzzling to  us the situation, the area was  open.  On December 1 a second  dioxin study was released showing at Port Mellon, crab muscle  7 TCDD, 201 TCDF (20 TEQ).  No information was given for  the digestive gland. On that day  the fisheries were closed.  Quoting Fisheries and Oceans  "Catch statistics indicated approximately 60 per cent of the  prawn harvest valued at  $133,000 in 1987 was gathered  in the closed sub-areas in Howe  Sound." The season was to  open December 2.  So ends the sequence of  events.  It's my view the fishermen  were treated unkindly by the  government, as they could very  well have been warned of an impending closure, with the opportunity to make other plans.  I've watched the equipment the  company has ordered over the  last year, and the approach they  have taken in compensating  Fisheries for a loss of feeding  habitat due to the expansion.  I know their wishes for a  clean environment to be sincere.  This is some scientific controversy about what constitutes  a health hazard for human beings.  However, this hasn't influenced the company to fall  short of its goal to have the  cleanest pulp mill. It is notable  with the company taking its  own initiative, the environmental groups raising the awareness  of the public, the government of  Canada conducting research  and showing concern. The provincial government has seemingly only offered political  rhetoric. .-. .-[ .-r-i:- - r-s^*  :.r^^rV^'t-v^*'^:"v^-?Kv*l'^.'V~ir^  mfffm^jkjmm^m**immi wmyiwuaiwnmnwwii'im y> �����*�����'���  tt'i ~-'^,~_ r^-.' vr;'lt"^;;^*.sirS'^'^ir^^:vr ^-^v.^V--^"- =v~^' v ..^r ��- .Y'-'.-'-J^-U- -'C��m  ��������..'.-,.���;.- .-.*---,  Coast News, January 16,1989  &}Qi^Y x|S'i^^iEE(M^''i^^^UjK:  Editor's note: a copy of the  following has been received for  publication.  Premier VanderZalm  Victoria, B.C.  Dear Mr. Premier:  Our, association requests your  assistance with respect to the  restructuring study, with which  the Town of Gibsons has been  involved for the past 18 months.  We offer the following points  for your consideration:  1. In mid-1986 petitions were  circulated in the rural areas and  approximately, 2000 names,  representing the vast majority  of electors unequivocally opposed inclusion within the  municipal boundaries of the  Town of Gibsons.  2. A public meeting was held  earlier this year, with several  hundred people in attendance  and although many people voiced their objection, not one  member of the public spoke in  favour of restructure.  3. Funding for the present  study was obtained from the  ministry of municipal affairs on  false information, with respect  to public opposition.  4. The rural communities in  Electoral Areas E and F enjoy a  wide range of services, provided  independently of the Town of  Gibsons. These services include  water, sewer, parks, street  lighting, garbage collection/disposal and fire protection. The rural areas contribute  grants for the use of recreation  and cultural facilities within the  town.  5. We understand the preliminary study, which has been  prepared, fails to identify how  the rural areas would benefit  through restructure, by way of  better or increased services, or  more efficient local government.  6. The study further proposed increased taxation for either  the residential areas or the industrial area in Howe Sound.  We have always held the  position that the rural areas  around the Town of Gibsons  are distinct and separate communities, with self-sufficient  servicing and, as such* should  be afforded the same consideration and process as separate entities.  Considering the above  statements, our association  takes the position that the current restructuring study is a  pointless waste of effort and  money and we now ask your  assistance in convincing your  minister of municipal affairs  that this unpopular and  threatening action be ceased immediately.  We look  forward to  support in this matter.  James S.

To prevent the club currently open to the public from  complete privatization because  its growth and expansion have  been restricted.  The club has grown through  dedication, donated free time  and the strong support of members and the public. I believe  there is the possibility of compromise to accommodate the  Gilker Park lovers and golfers  of the Coast.  The regional district and Sunshine Coast Golf and Country  Club do not want to rape the  land for profit. The end result  of our proposed expansion will  not be an eyesore.  All that is being requested is a  reasonable expansion of the  course. The preservation of  Gilker Park remains a priority.  Unfortunately some of the  controversy has excited many  people into believing the park  will be lost and the golf club will  become a private money-maker.  The expansion will create  employment as a result of the  development and increased  public use.  In closing I can appreciate  how some people find Gilker  Park a peaceful beauty spot on  the Coast. Do they use the park  two to four days a week like  some golfers who find the golf  course a peaceful beauty spot of  their own?  The last thing the Sunshine  Coast Golf and Country Club  wants to do is disturb the  peaceful beautiful setting of the  Coast. I encourage public support from individuals that feel  expansion and park preservation can be achieved.  Write the ministry to express  your views.  John Petula  RCMP officer   thanks public  Editor:  On the early morning of  January 2, Gibsons RCMP  Detachment lost a respected  policeman and valued friend.  The untimely death of Constable Dennis Donaldson left us  with a numbness and shock that  cannot be described. Our sense  of loss was profound.  Throughout our time of  mourning the detachment  members received support from  the entire community of Gibsons. When Dennis' family arrived, they too experienced  community compassion, sympathy and support.  They were so touched by the  Langdale  generous  Editor:'   'c ' " ': vi:'" ~:"  Santa Claus was very  generous in Langdale. Just one  week before Christmas day,  gloom and doom was hanging  over us.  A privately owned drug and  alcohol treatment center had  moved into the middle of our  residential area and almost went  into a business without the  residents' knowledge. Within a  few days we learned about  another private but illegal  operation in the media.  In this case it was a potential  drug related operation within  walking distance of the other,  while close by children were getting education in school and  emotion and concern expressed  by all that they made the decision to leave Dennis here in the  community he loved so much.  The list of people who helped  and supported all of us over the  past few weeks is too long to  document, and at the risk of  missing even one I'll not attempt to do that. All should  understand, however, that their  assistance and expressions of  compassion were very much appreciated.  On behalf of all the members  of Gibson RCMP Detachment  and their families, I ask all to  accept our deepest and most  sincere measure of gratitude.  We all knew prior to this unfortunate event that we lived in  a very special part of the world.  The events  of the past  few  weeks have reinforced that  thought and ensured that Gibsons will always hold a special  place in all out hearts.  W.E.

Coast News/January 16,1989  by Penny Fuller  v.  Robert Shiozaki has been  selected to design a generic  emblem for the Sunshine Coast,  it was announced at last week's  meeting of the Economic  Development Commission  (EDC). Shiozaki was one of  seven applicants who bid on the  job when the EDC invited  local artists to submit their ideas  for a design last fall.  A committee appointed by  the commission consisting of  Noreen Marshall, Valerie  Caine, Larry Westlake and Lin  da Malloy selected Shiozaki's  concepts as most representative  of the image they wish to portray in the emblem.  In meeting with the EDC  Shiozaki told the members he  felt there had to be a representation that covered both the  native and white cultures. He  felt that symbolically that was  possible.  He also pointed out how colourful the name 'Sunshine  Coast' is and explained he felt  that could be captured with the  use of colours.  "Probably the most important thing, as specified in the instructions," he said, "is that it  is a unifying symbol. It will  have that philosophical emphasis in it."  The emblem will be used by  anyone on the Sunshine Coast  who is promoting or advertising  the area, EDC chairman Maurice Egan told the commission.  "It will belong to the people  of the Sunshine Coast, not any  individual government body,"  he said.  There will, however, be a  body set up to govern its use so  that when used on anything like  t-shirts or pens, there would be  a share of the revenues collected. These monies, he stated,  will go to promote artistic  endeavours on the Sunshine  Coast.  One of the greatest challenges, suggested commissioner  Bill Moore, will be getting people to use the emblem.  "Once we put it out there,  not everyone is going to love it.  There'll be pros and cons expressed."  However, he went on, once  Robert Shiozaki was awarded the job of designing an emblem for the Sunshine Coast. Committee  members (from left to right) Noreen Marshall, Larry Westlake and Linda Malloy congratulated him last  Monday. ���Penny Fuller photo  people begin to identify with it  and use it, "...we begin to  develop, not only a self-  identify, but an identity in the  world."  He pointed to the lumber and  fish shipped out from this area  to places all over the world, as  well as the arts and crafts which  are gaining a reputation for  quality.  The final draft of the emblem  will be presented to the EDC at  the February 13 meeting. People interested in viewing samples  of Shiozaki's pottery and  graphics can see them on  display at the Shadow Baux  Gallery or Cafe Pierrot in  Sechelt.

In fac il is taking place all around us. For over 100 years the  world has been growing ever more interdependent, making neighbours of us all.  Baha'u'llah, the Messenger of Cod for our age and Founder of  the Baha'i' Faith described this process of unification as the plan of  God today.  He said, "A new life is, in this age, stirring within the souls of all  mankind. . . All created things proclaim the evidences of this worldwide regeneration."  By learning to put Baha'u'llah's teachings into practice, the  Baha'i* community around the world is discovering that the unity of  mankind is not a distant ideal, but a practical reality today.

The terms of reference,  together with Pacific Coast  Energy Corporation's application documents, have been sent  to the B.C. Utilities Commission. It will hold hearings and  return its recommendations to  the provincial government by  March 1989.  The commission has been  asked to review the design, construction and operation of the  project for: safety, reliability  and efficiency; environmental  and land-use impacts; B.C. and  Canadian content of labour,  material and equipment; costs,  cost-control and budgeting;  and, gas sales to both industrial  and local distribution markets.  Jack Davis, energy minister,  said, "The commission's review  gives public input into the terms  and conditions government will  set for the pipeline's construction and operation. The commission's advice will also help  us get the maximum benefits  from gas sales, local purchasing  and project scheduling."  Bruce Strachan, environment  minister, said, "The pipeline  project will allow gas to replace  fuel oil and thus reduce air  pollution in the area around the  Lower Mainland. This is a major environmental benefit from  the project.  "At the same time, the  utilities commission review will  make sure impacts on sensitive  areas, such as the underwater  crossings, streams and water  supply areas are kept to a  minimum."  Since September, when the  statement of principles with Ot-.  tawa was signed by Davis and  Premier Vander Zalm, Pacific  Coast Energy's seven-volume  application has been filed and  reviewed by provincial and  federal government technical  staff, the utilities commission  will soon announce the procedures to be followed at the  public hearings, so that interested parties can make their  views known.  A separate process will handle the franchises for local  distribution utilities to bring gas  to the 22 local areas to be connected to the main pipeline. A  proposal call has been advertised and applications are due in  January.

Sechelt Chamber  asks for funds  by Rose Nicholson  by Penny Fuller  ��� The Sechelt Chamber of  ; Commerce has put together  ���; enough information on the Sun-  i shine Coast to produce a book.  ' Now it is looking for funds to  i publish the book.  Gail Sangster, chamber  : manager, presented the project  ; to the Sunshine Coast  ���: Economic Development Com-  ) mission (EDC) at the January- 9  meeting.  The publication, she told the  '��� meeting, would be about 70  < pages of information, photo-  ��� graphs, maps and illustrations.  ; It includes information on the  ; history of the area, the schools,  ; industries and everything else  ; that Sangster has been asked  ; about in her one and a half  ; years at the tourist information  ; centre.  The chamber is asking the  EDC   to   contribute   $5000  towards the cost of publishing,  , in   addition   to   approaching  Sechelt,  Gibsons  and  Powell  River to kick in $4000 each.  Major companies in the area,  ��� such as Howe Sound Pulp and  'Paper,   MacMillian   Bloedel,  :etc, will also be approached,  she said.  Maurice Egan, chairman of  the EDC, appeared to have  some reservations about the  project. He pointed out the  commission already contributed  $2500 in the form of a contract  for work they needed done for  an economic profile.  The book, he said, was excellent, and one he would enjoy  having himself. But the market  for such a publication, and the  usefulness of a lot of the information to outsiders is questionable, he said.  "It needs a brutal editing  job," he told Sangster.  Ken Collins, who represents  the Gibsons Chamber of Commerce on the commission, cited  his organization's difficulties in  recouping the financial investment in 'the Beachcomber  Book', a promotional endeavour of the Gibsons chamber.  All members of the commission had not had an opportunity  to read the manuscript, so a  decision could not be reached  regarding Sangster's request for  financial support. The issue will  be discussed at the February  meeting of the EDC.  School District 46 has received three grants from the  ministry of education's district  technology program liason  funds.  John Clements and Mike  Allegretti of Chatelech Secondary School were awarded  $2000 to develop a computerised bank of test data. The information will enable teachers in  local high schools to access a  wide range of material that can  be used in preparing tests and  exams.  David Short, director of the  District   Resource   Centre,  received $1600 which he will use  to compile a computerised  catalogue of material available  at the centre.  Lee Brown of West Sechelt  Elementary School received  $825 which he will use to create  a daily planning program for  the Apple Mac computer that  individual teachers can adapt  for classroom planning.

Sechelt Mayor Tom Meredith, and Councillors Joyce  Kolibas and David Wells were  also on hand for the occasion.  Representatives from various  non-profit societies, members  and friends attended.  "1988 was an exciting year  for community services," said  President Hilary Estergaard.  "We've undertaken a new family counselling and parenting  training program called Project  Parent Sunshine Coast.  "We're planning to operate a  pilot legal information service  this year. Our new offices have  given us the room to accommodate this growth."  Ms Estergaard expressed the  thanks of the board of directors  to the volunteer coordinators of  several society agencies, Joan  Pratt of the Sechelt Food Bank,  Doug Third and John Saunders  of Audio Books, Joan Merrick  from Parent Tot Drop-in,  Dania Matiation and the executive committee of the Rainbow Preschool, and Isobel  Brown of Telephone Tree.  "These volunteers form an  important part of Community  Services," said Ms Estergaard,  "and we appreciate their contribution."  Community Services is now  located in the old Capilano College building at 5638 Inlet  Avenue in Sechelt. For information about the society and its  agencies, please call 885-5881  Monday to Friday, or drop into  the office between 8:30 am and  4 pm.  Dedication counts  by Larry Grafton  In my various columns I have  repeated the importance of supporting the National Pensioners  and Senior Citizens Association  based in Toronto with your $2  membership.  On a recent channel 6 news  broadcast it was most interesting to watch one of the  main instigators of the movement still in action at 94 years of  age. He is Jack Lerette.  The program depicted him  running the press for the National Pensioners and Senior  Citizens   News   Bulletin.  He is still doing a masterful  job for all seniors nation-wide.  The fact that the organization  was recognized on the National  News should tell us something.  LETTERS OF SUPPORT  When our branch decided we  must have a new activity centre,  we asked the various community organizations for letters of  support for our project. That  was in late 1983 and the letters  were forthcoming.  A recent request for update  has produced letters of support  from the Sunshine Coast  Regional Board, the Corpora  tion of the District of Sechelt,  St. Mary's Hospital board and  from Shorncliffe. When one  considers the scope of support  shown by these people for our  activity centre, it tells our committee only one thing. Keep trying!  We have been told that the  seniors organization in  Courtenay gave up the fight for  their own hall after 12 years of  effort. They are kicking  themselves now because it is no  longer a seniors activity centre  and they have lost control.  RAFFLE  Some months ago I reported  the donation of a colour TV to  our branch by two local businesses. This has been in use with  a VCR unit, by the painting  group for painting instruction.  Things don't last forever and  the old VCR has 'given up the  ghost'.  Being innovative people, they  have decided a raffle of two of  their hand-painted saw blade  clocks will produce funds to  secure this for the branch. The  tickets have been printed and  are now available at $1 each or  three for $2.

Harold Long, MLA for the  area, made the announcement  last week.  "The second vehicle will provide an additional 3,000 hours  of service and carry 32,000  passengers. It will serve commuters and provide a more extensive service for shoppers,  seniors, students and residents  without automobiles," said the  MLA.  "The two bus system will  provide an excellent level of service for this community with  regular trips to the smaller centres of Langdale, Port Mellon,  Redrooffs and other areas."  The $75,000 in new funding is  part of a broader program of  service improvements announced on Monday, January 9 by  the Honourable Rita Johnston,  minister responsible for B.C.  Transit.  The existing mini-bus has  been providing door-to-door  service to disabled people and  regular trips between Sechelt  and Gibsons. The service is  operated by the Sunshine Coast  Community Services Society.  Any way you Slice it  the Classifieds bring results  %     ��  4  $      &  <s  Enjoy modern electric heat  and save up to 50% on fuel costs  Electric Plus is clean, quiet,  versatile and 100% efficient  Electric Plus gives you all the advantages of modern,  energy-efficient electric heat at a saving of  up to 50% on fuel costs if you now use  oil or propane. Your Electric Plus heating  system is clean and convenient, quiet  and 100% efficient. You can choose from  a variety of ways to heat electrically  with Electric Plus, while having oil,  propane, butane, wood or coal as a  back-up heating system.  Supply is limited, so get  popular Electric Plus now.  Electric Plus is offered at the special low  rate of 2.5�� per kilowatt-hour (about  half the regular cost of electricity) because  it is secondary interruptible energy,  available only when we have more  water than we need for basic  commitments. The supply of this  secondary energy is limited to 500  gigawatt-hours, and once this limit is  reached - expected to be within the next  12 months - no new Electric Plus  customers will be signed up.  If you sign up for Electric Plus now you'll enjoy th(  benefits of electric heating whenever secondary energy  is available. When Electric Plus is interrupted you  switch to your back-up system. We expect interruptions  to be infrequent but when one does occur it will likely  last an entire heating season.  Convenient Hydro financing and big  dollar savings.  For most homes, the entire cost of converting  to dual-fuel Electric Plus can be covered  by B.C. Hydro financing. It's available on  approved credit at only 8Y2% interest.  ! Contractors can arrange financing, which can  be conveniently repaid on Hydro bills over  periods up to four years.  Your home is probably eligible for Electric  Plus, unless it already has natural gas service.  If you now heat with oil or propane, Electric  Plus could save you $200 to $450 a year  on space heating, and another $110 to  $130 on water heating if you add it  there too.

Margaret Fahlman, a native  of Australia and recent Gibsons  resident, is the director/-  counsellor for the new Action:  Drug and Alcohol Service  Society operating out of  Sechelt.  If you, a member of your  family, a friend, an acquaintance or anyone has an alcohol  or drug-related problem, just  call Margaret at 5686 Dolphin  Street 885-5680 and you'lj get  help. Action is a private drug  and alcohol counselling service,  one of the first in a B.C.  government policy to turn the  drug problem over to local people.  Action works in conjunction  with Alcoholics Anonymous,  etc. and isn't a replacement for  them.  MARGARET FAHLMAN  DIRECTOR - COUNSELLOR  "From my own experience  and from the people I talk to,  there's a pretty desperate need  for it," said-Action chairman  Brian Butcher, a local school  system executive, and former  Sechelt school principal. The  doors open Tuesday. A lot of  effort went in to setting up and  getting it going," he said.  The counselling is to be  private and confidential. From  experience at Powell River, the  local abuse of cannabis, marijuana and alcohol is pretty  huge, said Butcher. There and  at Squamish societies similar to  Action are already operating.  Until now the only drug and  alcohol counselling available on  the Sunshine Coast was a mental health service for young offenders. Now counselling is  available to all ages and it isn't  necessary to break the law to  qualify.  A society on substance abuse  was formed here about a year  ago. It was the culmination of  years of effort by a group trying  to get something going.  Funds were then to come  from the provincial government  but were frozen while a provincial policy was set.  Now the money has come  through and a director hired.  There is also to be a secretary.  The aim is to set up all kinds  of networks to help substance  victims: through schools, social  services, public health, senior  citizens, anybody that wants the  service, said Butcher.  "For some of the people that  worked on this for years, it's a  dream come true. I'm new to  the organization and haven't  put in the work they have, said  the chairman.  The people who have really  spearheaded this thing over the  years, said Butcher, are Rich  and Jan Mennie, Pat Muryn,  Brian and Heather Myhill-  Jones. Lately there has been  major effort from Bill and  Marg McKinnon of Community Futures, SCRD administrator  Larry Jardine, SCRD Chairman Peggy Connor, and public  health nursing official Diane  Read.  Chairman Butcher emphasized the new service is highly interested in substance abuse  prevention.  "There's a desperate need  here for counselling. The province has earmarked this as a  high priority place for counselling. That's why we got the  money and the service." he  said.  Director/counsellor Fahlman  took her psychology degree at  UBC. She is working on her  Masters in Counselling  Psychology.  Before this job she was at  Vancouver's Peak House, the  first provincial adolescent  alcohol and drug residential  program which started in May.  She has 11 years experience in  this work.  In the counselling work it's  better if the whole family is involved, she says.  There are lots of alcohol pro-  9.  blems out there. About onej*|n  10 people either have, or will  develop, a problem with  alcohol. That's not counting ifie  other substances for which there  aren't estimated rates. i  i:  Hired to set up a complexly  new program here, FahlrtSfh  has run groups for youth and  for families. She can provicte  educational programs for interested groups until she gg|s  too busy for much of that. :p|  Students help peers  -A  A Peer Helping Program has  been developed at Roberts  Creek School.  Eleanor Swann, teacher at  the school, described the new  venture at last week's school  board meeting.  "Peer helping", explained  Swann "is a way for students to  learn how to care about others  and put that caring into practice. It relies strongly on communication to facilitate self exploration and decision making.  "Peer helpers are the same  age as the client population. So  often students find it easier *j#  talk to a peer than an adult. Jg  "We're so used to thinking oi;  negative peer pressure. It giy^s  the staff, through the studerifjg.  the opportunity to reach the,  quiet majority, the kids whq  don't really have any big pro-!,  blems." said Swann. ;���  "We included all of the grade!!  7 class in the program," wentj;  on Swann, "because we felt all'  of them would benefit.'' :-'  *!*��**"  PS6tr  i3, ���?    f-vi- .

And if you haven't a  house number up at all...good  grief!  A member of the West Howe  Sound Fire department has  already cruised the roads of the  area noting what houses have  no numbers showing to anyone  on the road. On February 4  weekend a fireman or a policeman will visit each residence not  showing its number clearly to  deliver Fast Find's message.  A printed message will be left  at the door for those away at the  time of the call.  All this is done just for your  protection. So please listen, and  get that number out plain and  clear where it can be seen from  the roadway.  You know your right  number? Check yours at the  mall display the 27th and 28th  of this month. Or call the appropriate local government,,  regional or town, and find out.  Right number is very important.  Schools in the area will be  visited Monday, January 16,  and pupils in the primary  Kindergarten to Grade 3 will be  given colouring sheets to do and  take home to hang on the fridge  as a reminder to Mom and Dad.  Pupils in Grades 4 to 7 will be  told of a poster contest with  prizes.  Please help us help you. It  might be a life or death matter.  RCMP TRANSFER  When Constable Derek  Crawford transfers from Gibsons early in February, he will  be promoted to the rank of corporal and will serve in the  Prince Rupert RCMP detachment.  Derek has been a member of  the RCMP for 17 years, serving  in Regina, Sparwood, Kam-  loops, Dawson Creek and Gibsons. He grew up in Saskatchewan where his father served  as a member of the RCMP in  the rank of staff-sergeant.  "I hope to take some spare  time fishing and hunting," said  Derek, "and when it rains too  hard to get out, to get my home  workshop going again. A table  saw for Christmas has given me  a strong hint."  Wife Cathy will be missed in  Gibsons. She has been a  member of the church council  of St. Bartholomew's through  the times of the building of the  new church hall and in the ongoing search for a new minister.  She has been a Girl Guide  leader and a former member of  the executive of the Jack and  Jill Pre-school.  CPL. DEREK CRAWFORD  LEAVING GIBSONS  Cathy was instrumental in  getting the Welsh Men's Choir  to present a concert in the new  church hall last fall. "It helped  having my father and an uncle  in the choir," Cathy said.  She added, "The choir found  the acoustics of the hail quite  satisfactory. I would hope they  can come each year."  BEACHCOMBERS  With the heading 'From  Prince Albert to the Beachcombers' a news clipping has  come our way.  It's a biographical sketch of  Janet-Laine Green who joined  the Beachcombers in their 17th  year in the character of Dana  Battle, the new owner of  Molly's Reach.  Janet-Laine Green was born  in Prince Albert, went through  school there until it was time to  move away to attend university  in Edmonton. There at the  university and in a number of  Canadian theatre companies she  developed that keen acting skill  we have already seen in other  TV shows.  She was in Hollywood with  her husband, actor Booth  Savage, auditioning when the  CBC's offer reached her. She  was happy to come here.  Some TV viewers may have  seen Green in 'Chautauqua  Girl' and in the series 'Seeing  Things'.

The team visits Sunshine  Coast highschools January 17  to 20.  ~ It all began 13 years ago when  B.C. institutions decided that,  rather than work on a competitive basis, students should  receive a service oriented approach to post secondary education.  "Now," says SFU Director  of Admissions Nick Heath, "we  have an exchange of information which is beneficial to  everyone, students and  counsellors alike."  "We're able to advise  students of the many educational opportunities tha,t egist in  B.C.," agrees Cecilia Ffeemah-  Ward, UVIC Director.. of Adr  missions Services.  "And because we're on the  road together," adds UBC  School   and   College   Liaison  Coordinator Mary Stott,  "we're getting to share and exchange information about  B.C.'s post secondary education on a frequent basis."  That exchange of information is aided through advances  in technology. Teleconferencing, for example, has given the  liaison committee the added advantage of linking up their institutions by phone to schools in  places too remote and expensive  for the team to visit regularly.  From now until March the  liaison team is-on the road,  visiting schools personally or  teleconferencing. The team will  be in the Sunshine Coast area  on the following dates.

Police Beat  GIBSONS RCMP  RCMP report that in the first  week of this new year two persons have been charged with impaired driving; one was given a  24-hour suspension; and three  were lodged in the cell for  drunkeness in public places.  A 38 year old male, of no fixed address, has been remanded  in custody in the Lower Mainland Regional Correctional Institute to await a preliminary  hearing February 16 on charges  following investigation by the  Gibsons RCMP.  He has been charged with  possession of an explosive contrary to his probation order,  possession of a narcotic, not  paying a taxi and robbery.  Two instances of break and  enter and public mischief at the  Gibsons Marina and the construction project on Dougal  Road are under investigation.  One young offender is in  custody. Charges are pending.  On December 28 a 46 year  old Surrey man was arrested  following a complaint against  him of minor theft on the  Langdale ferry.  Upon investigation he was  found to be on parole which the  board has since revoked.  The RCMP feel the project  Counter-Attack has had a good  effect and that people realize  more and more there are times  when other transport, like taxis  Gibsons  or buses, is the only way to go.  The RCMP is pleased to see the  project turn out as it did.  Project Counter Attack ran  from December 8 to January 3.  It was. assisted on occasion by  Elphinstone students who handed out pamphlets. It reports the  following in the Gibsons area  concerning motor vehicles:  Six injury cases, none serious;  18 instances of property  damage; 16 traffic charges  (three impaired charges did not  come from the road blocks);  four roadside suspensions; 20  written warnings; no accidents  involving liquor. A total of 1588  vehicles were checked.  Sr  ^  ^>\l\GGf/lf/ty  3tyf-J)  SPECIAL  French Roast  $6"///>.  (We sell only Canterbury Coffee  The Very Best!)

For my part, it can cease  and desist any time now.  Guests included Mrs. Nellie  Baker, my mother visiting from  Calgary, and new members  Mary Ross, Theresa and Phil  Gamache, who were also  welcomed to the group.  Thanks were expressed to  John Hoath for his suggestion  regarding the obtaining of the  new fl.gs, one of which is in  place and the other being held  for possible positioning on a  new flag pole. Thanks also go to  the B.C. government for the  donation of these flags.  Thanks are also expressed to  Steve White for his various renditions on the piano.  New executive members being installed for a two-year  period include Rena White as  Treasurer, Norah Cox as  Secretary, and the following  members on the board of directors; Olive Manton, Joy Maxwell, Bill Nasadyk and Fred  Hope. We wish this group every  success and trust you will give  them your full support.  Grace Gilchrist spoke a few  words in regards to the time and  effort spent by Marge Leslie as  secretary for the association  over the past number of years.  Grace thanked Marge for her  avid and devout work for the  group and presented Marge  with a life membership and past  secretary   pin.  A vote of thanks was also extended to Lilian Kunstler and  the entertainment committee  for their worthwhile efforts over  the past year. These members  were numerous and to prevent  missing anyone, I will just say  you know who you are and  your contributions were appreciated.  Another entertainment committee is required soon to carry  on for the present year, so give  it a thought and let E. Hume  know if you are. interested.  Phone 886-9201.  Ernie Hume received condolences from the group on the  loss of his wife, Pearl, in  December and a vote was  ^unanimously passed to make a  donation to the local chapter of  the Alzheimer organization in  her memory.  Sympathy was also extended  to Julie Boser on the loss of her  sister. Julie is recuperating from  a knee operation and could do  with a few phone calls or  visits���her number is 886-8370.

"It is time that our leisure  (recreation) needs be met on the  Sunsine Coast. P.A.L.S. believes that the best way to accomplish this is to put in place  an action plan, says Sandy  McBride.  "For more than 70 communities throughout Western  Canada, an action plan has  been a valuable resource for the  planning and organizing of  leisure opportunities.  "More than just a study, an  action plan will incorporate the  input of our elected decision  makers and local community  groups and individuals to produce a set of short term and  long term recommendations  that will meet our leisure  (recreation) needs now, and  over the next five to ten year  period. It will also propose a  financial strategy for the im  plementation of these recommendations, " says McBride.  "P.A.L.S.' objective is clear.  The group is committed to  facilitating an action plan. It is  confident that the recommendations presented will provide the  necessary direction for the construction of facilities and the  provision of leisure services  which will meet the needs of  residents from Egmont to Port  Mellon." she says.  A meeting has been scheduled  for Tuesday, February 7 at 7:30  pm at the Roberts Creek Community Use Room to discuss the  merits of an action plan.  Among the guest speakers will  be a professional recreation  planner, who will provide information and answer our questions.

I can almost hear her soft:  "Don't worry honey,  we'll get out of this jam  somehow  just as we always have."  ��� Herbert Emerson Wilson  Flushed with success, Herb  calls a temporary halt to the  gang's lucrative spree and heads  for home. 'Home' is now a  modern, well-appointed house  on palm-lined West Santa Barbara Avenue in a fashionable  Los Angeles neighbourhood. In  18 years of marriage it is the  first home Herb and Alice have  actually owned.  Alice still harbours some  disappointment over Herb's  departure from the ministry but  she is bound to admit that he  has become a wonderful provider. In her prayers Alice does  not forget to give thanks to the  Lord for showering his blessings  upon them.  Their lovely home is all paid  for, they have a closed  Studebaker and Herb has pro  vided her with a smaller sedan  for her own use. They even have  an Oriental houseboy.  Life is kind to Alice, who has  already become a prominent  figure in her church and is  heavily involved in charitable  works.  Herb encourages her endeavours and often expresses regret  that his prolonged absences prevent him from fully participating in the rich church life.  He tries to make amends for  this by attending as many functions as he can find time for  whenever he returns home.  On this visit however, Herb  will have little time for anything  except business matters for his  prosperity has brought with it a  number of complexities. He  realizes that even Alice'  credulity would be strained if  attributed his sudden wealth  solely to property deals.  He concocts a story that he  has gone into the oil business  and will still have to travel a  good deal in order to investigate  and supervise his oil wells.  Actually, Herb has been putting his capital to use by investing in real estate. Some  months back he obtained a  realtor's license and dabbled a  bit in buying and selling property.

Each month  members receive an interesting  aiid informative newsletter with  information on the publications  requesting submissions, the type  of stories ..orr;articles required,  and" news ^  members have had accepted by  publishers.    ^Y^,.

Cost is $15 for  the fiscal year which starts in  April each year.  This entitles members to vote  on issues, receive the monthly  newsletter, and to use the copy  machine which is owned by the  forge. It is located in the Coast  News office in Sechelt.

Just getting together with  kindred spirits is found to be a  stimulating and enjoyable experience. Many new friendships  arise.  The organization was formed  some six years ago and has been  going strong ever since. Until  two years ago the Suncoast  Writers' Forge produced the  Annual Festival of the Written  Arts.  It was found the festival required a different type of  organization, thus the Festival  of the Written Arts became a  separate entity.  The Suncoast Writers' Forge  has produced three anthologies.  To date there have been two annual magazines entitled Tht  Suncoaster, with a third due for  publication this spring.  ; These compile works by local  writers and make interesting  and entertaining.reading. They  are available at local book  stores and at the Coast News offices.  Thanks to a grant from the  Sunshine Coast Arts Society,  cash prizes are offered in annual  writing contests.

Disillusioned and bitter,  many of them return to the  more rural settings, having  realized that even the most  cosmopolitan metropolis is only  a conglomeration of people and  groups who only care about  those things which directly affect themselves.  If you were born when the  Sun was in Aquarius (January  21-February 19), you may have  a hard time accepting the 'narrow perspective' of the people  around you. At times you may  get downright disgusted with  the ego-tripping, petty politics  you see.  Especially when you watch  the news, or read a newspaper  and see the death, destruction  and suffering that is occurring  in the world. It kind of makes it  hard to care about your sister's,  boyfriend's affair, doesn't it?  On the other hand, people  may accuse you of being cold  and callous, able to care about  international 'causes' that you  can't do anything about, but  unfeeling when it comes to the  people in your life and their  'crises'. Don't take it too  seriously. Almost every  Aquarian gets that thrown at  them a couple of times in their  lives.  You provide the macro-  cosmic view of things, and can  help the people you care about  put things into a more realistic  perspective, especially if you  can soften your words and tone  of voice when you point out,  "Really, in a hundred years,  who's going to care?''  Part of your challenge, as an  evolving human being, is to  recognize the relationship between the macrocosm and the  microcosm in your own life. A  favourite saying of astrologers  as,Y'As~abpve, sorbelow'^\ Y..::  ;  The key phrase of the new  age movement tends to be, 'As  within, so without'.  In other words, the reality  that you see reflected in the  society and the world around  you, is part and parcel of the  reality within yourself.  This concept isn't restricted  to 'flakey types'. It is being put  forward by some of the top  scientific minds of our time as  they explore quantum physics.  I would highly recommend  two books for any Aquarian, or  for that matter anyone who  wants a scientific perspective of  new age phenomena, The  Aquarian Conspiracy by  Marilyn Ferguson, and The  Dancing Wu-Li Masters by  Gary Zukav.  Before any transformation  can take place in society, it must  occur within the individual who  is perceiving that society.  Change yourself and you  change your world.  This may be the hardest  challenge that an Aquarian  faces, to re-focus your attention  inside yourself and begin the  work there.  Keep in mind that this is not  ignoring the healing that needs  to be done in the world, the self-  healing you do is for the benefit  of the world.  sxsrsxrrarTSTv.��9v y v jf * �� �� * * 9999999 9 *j> ."��^jj rssrn  ARTS & CRAFTS PROGRAMS  FOR CHILDREN  Sponsored by Sunshine Coast Arts Council and   Sunshine Coast Credit Union    All classes are for children ages 8-12  inor  hockey  PAINTING PLUS - 6 Sessions  Sechelt - Larry Westlake - Print-  making  Pat Crucil - Painting  Athea Rowe - Drawing  Starting Sat., Feb. 11, 10-12  Rockwood Lodge art space  Fee: $40 including materials.

"You never take me out to dinner anymore."  "I shot back. What about that gala grand opening at Mac-  Donalds?" She reminded me that was 1976 when we had a  grease fire in our kitchen."  Point taken, I decided to make it up to her with a real treat,  an evening at the Creekhouse in Roberts Creek.  Our mid-week adventure was a cold wet Wednesday. We  were soon warmed by the friendly smile of our hostess Barb,  who seated us in a cosy corner next to the crackling fireplace.  Our final choices were more satisfying than we imagined.  Starting with Hor D'oeuvres of escargot, on mushroom caps,  white sauce, a memorable creation.  As an entree my wife chose the special of the evening,  Feuillete de fruits de mer. This was a filo pastry roll stuffed  with scallops, shrimp and cod in a light tomato, cream,  shallot and wine sauce.  She also had her choice of soup du jour (vegetable) or salad  vinaigrette. She chose the salad.  This delightful combination of flavours was sumptuous as  I managed to sneak a couple of forkfulls, (with the old 'isn't  that a fly on the ceiling' diversion).  My entree was equally gratifying. I chose the Filet Mont-  pellier (grilled filet of beef with herb butter). Done to a succulent medium rare this more than ample helping was fit for  an Olympic size appetite. The filet was two to three inches  thick, tender, juicy and flavourful.  I close by thanking Barb and our talented chef Yvon for an  exemplary dining adventure. We will be back!  Average meal prices quoted do not include liquor.

It requires 22 coaches to help the  kids, and many hours of phoning and organizing done by  parents. All the help is  volunteer.  There are six divisions in this  area. Children four years old to  seven are in 'Peanuts'. The  eight and nine year olds are in  Tups' followed by 'Atoms' (10  and 11 year olds).  In those divisions the children  learn basic skating skills, puck  handling and stick handling.  Body checking is not introduced until the 'Peewee'  division. Older players from 14  through 16 play in the 'Bantam'  teams and after that the  'Midgets'.

Another major complaint of  parents is also not a problem on  the Sunshine Coast. While it is  common, he explained, for  hockey players in major urban  centres to have practice at 5 am,  because of the smaller number  of teams, no one on the Coast  practices any earlier than ,7 am.

Coast News, January 16,1989  An Indian Isle Construction crew worked 30 hours in 214 days last week for the South Pender Harbour  and District Water Board to repair a series of faults near Lagoon and Francis Peninsula Road in Madeira  Park's 20-year-old system. The culprit was a broken pipe (see inset). ���Myrtle Winchester photo  Pender water net  by Myrtle Winchester  Recent problems with the  Pender Harbour water system  have left many residents upset  with the irregular service, but  hopefully there won't be any  more interruptions.  The major problem was caused about 20 years ago, during  installation of the system, when  a large rock was dropped on a  main line, cracking it and causing a leak that was only  discovered and fixed a week ago  when three nearby valves had to  be replaced.  "The difficulty came from it  being in such a strategic place,"  ; said Frank White, who has been  working for the South Pender  Harbour  and   District  Water  ��� Board for 12 years. The pipe lies  ' below the high tide line (the area  ' used to be under water at high  tide), and thus the crew had to  ' deal with water filling the hole  as they worked.  ��� There   is   a   question   of  whether the system is adequate  : to serve the community, and  suggestions have been made to  rebuild the whole thing.  "Don't rip it out," White  cautioned. "Instead of replacing, we should be paralleling  lines. A line down the highway  to Madeira Park would have  prevented all this (inconvenience).  "In the city you've got four  valves on every block, so you  can isolate any part of it when  work needs to be done. Here  we've got only two valves in the  four miles from Lagoon to  Warnock Road. Unlike Vancouver, this is a one line system.  White explained, "There was  a shortage of money when the  system was installed, and it was  done to serve as much of the  community as possible.  "Our lines are not overloaded," White continued, "and we  have not had a problem with the  velocity of flow, but we've got a  1969's system with 1980's people. Our energies should be  directed to parallel lines and  looping, now everything  depends on one corner."  i ��:���?��"  RRSP RRSP RRSP RRSP RRSP RRSP RRSP RRSP RRSP  o.  cc  cc  Q.  CO  CC  cc  Q.

Thus, here's Egmont News,  Five Years Ago:  In 1984 the Egmont News  said Happy Birthday to Gunnar  Gjerdin and city-bound  Michelle Beardmore. Rose  Mueller was installed as  treasurer of the Pender Harbour Health Clinic Auxiliary by  acting secretary Isabelle Ralph.  We had fun at the meat  draws and Sunday dancing at  the Backeddy Pub, and everybody was saying that golfing in  Kleindale and skiing near Tan-  nis Lake (Tetrahedron) was just  a dream.  Establishment of a Pender Harbour police station with a  staff of three Royal Canadian Mounted Police officers is being requested by the Sunshine Coast Regional District board.  The move was approved January 12 as Pender area director Gordon Wilson urged the request forward at an SCRD  meeting.  "There's been a whole raft of break-ins and an outbreak of  shoplifting," said Wilson, while lawlessness on the highway is  bad. Young high-powered car drivers are out of hand and in-  terferring with school buses, etc., he said.  ���^������^sacsgr  with new concept  in thermal windows  from Elson Glass  ��� Same expert installation  ��� Improved thermal  insulation  ��� Better condensation  reduction  ��� Same 7 YEAR WARRANTY  Impressed?

Burnaby, B.C. V5G 1B2.  File Number 2404213  C.W. Dierks  D.J. Dierks  Roberts Creek Elementary School, using  the team approach, has developed a Special  Needs program that, according to Principal  Stuart Hercus, is meeting all of the needs of  all of the kids who need special attention.  At a school district board meeting held at  the school last week, Hercus and Special  Needs Co-ordinator, Bob Benmore, outlined for the board the school's program.  Special Needs students, in department of  education terminology, are students who  are gifted, or need learning assistance, or  have specific diagnosed disabilities, or have  poor work habits, or are socially at risk.  Teachers, using a referral system  developed at the school, identify the  children who need the benefits of the program.  The five member team assesses the needs  of each student and then decides on the  steps to be taken. If necessary, outside help  like counsellors, social workers or hearing  impaired experts may be called on.  Gifted children (usually two to five per  cent of the population) and high achievers  are provided with an enriched program,  which is under the direction of teacher  Maureen McBeth.  Replying to a question from Trustee Al  Lloyd, as to whether students 'graduate'  from the Special Needs program, Benmore  pointed out that poor study habits are the  main problem of the bulk of Special Needs  kids.  "These are capable students," he said.  "We work intensively with them for about  a year, with heavy emphasis on language  arts, math and science.  "I am amazed at the results. Last year  about 50 per cent of the students returned  to the regular program, and they're doing  incredibly well.  "This is the first time" added principal  Hercus, "that I've felt comfortable with  Special Needs. I attribute it to the team approach.  "We don't have people standing in corners, doing things by themselves. We know  every kid in the school. We're really pleased  with the way it's going.  >>  Pender Patter  AUCTION  School District No. 46 (Sunshine Coast) will be holding  an AUCTION'on Saturday, January 28,1989 at Gibsons  Elementary School in the parking lot and playground  from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.  For sale will be two school buses, one Dodge Van, all  types of surplus equipment, a wood stove, audio-visual  equipment, desks, chairs and a planer.

Merle Gerbrandt will present  the film 'From Solar System to  Universe' and discuss it and the  field of astronomy.
